Tuesday: The Bible as Prophecy — 3 Comments

  1. This is one of my favorite passages with crystal clear explanation on bible prophecy

    Isaiah 44: 6

    The Lord, Not Idols

    6 “This is what the Lord says—
    Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty:
    I am the first and I am the last;
    apart from me there is no God.
    7 Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it.
    Let him declare and lay out before me
    what has happened since I established my ancient people,
    and what is yet to come—
    yes, let them foretell what will come.
    8 Do not tremble, do not be afraid.
    Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago?
    You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me?
    No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.”

    In this passage God challenges the so-called gods to declare what is to come.

    In the book of Daniel, He said, He will bring sacrifices and offerings to a halt by His death brought to an end to the earthly sanctuary service. He is God there is none like Him.

    What would it take for you to believe in Him?

    Amen!(23)
  2. Some of the passages that we now can see as predictions of the Messiah might not have been so clear to the people in those days. Just so there might be concepts we don't yet understand but Jesus has promised we will. John 13:19, John 16:12-13

    Amen!(5)
  3. C.S. Lewis makes the same point the lesson author is making, that Jesus claimed to be God. In “ Mere Christianity “ pg 55-56, Lewis says that one just can not accept Jesus as a good moral teacher and move on. He says that because Jesus claimed to be God,

    “You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

    Amen!(0)
