That is simply what prophecy is, history foretold. To put it another way it would be history revealed. Our world and many of the people in it seems to be on the edge of hysteria because of prophecies which are in the midst of coming true! Some people think that they are the instruments of this, forcing the end-time prophecies to come about. Others are just reading it in their Bible and praying that they will be taken out of here before any of the “tribulation” begins. Still others look at Bible prophecy and the news and see it unfolding before their eyes one day at a time.
We are living in that time which is on the edge of time where prophecy becomes reality. Some people are looking forward to it, others are dreading it and still others could care less because they don’t believe any of it. The problem with refusing to see it happening or disbelieving that which has been foretold won’t stop it from coming true. God says in His Word: “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
The prophecies which are contained in the Bible have all come to pass except for the ones in the book of Revelation, and we are seeing them come to pass a little bit at a time every day in the news. It is true that we haven’t seen any of the judgements or heard the trumpet blast, yet…but the things such as the violent weather patterns and the numerous conflicts all around Israel are happening with more frequency every day.
The judgements of God won’t fall on mankind until the real tribulation period begins, but we will see and experience the events leading up to it. When that Trumpet sounds, there will be no mistake as to what or Who it is, yet many will still wonder about it.
Are you ready for it? What will be your position when “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.…”? 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17
Will you be one of those that rises to meet the Lord in the air? Or will you be waiting for the noise to go away so you can get back to your life? With all of the cars crashing and the air planes falling from the sky, your life and many of lives of the people on Earth will change dramatically. Consider this and read the Bible, seek Him while there is still time to do so. God will not stop seeking you even after this happens, but it will likely be harder to find a Bible or a believer to guide you at this time. Ask Jesus to come into your life today because we are not sure of tomorrow.
