Today we’ll continue to point out some of the prophecies that we read in God’s Word. In the O.T. we often read the words “thus saith the LORD” and any time we read that we can rest assured that God is about to speak, and every thing He says is important, whether you and I fully understand it or not.
Listen as I read today’s text found in:
Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
I saw on a documentary in the last few days about a man and his family that had spent a lot of money on preparing a well stocked place to live underground, he said he had about 2000.00 dollars worth of groceries and had a stocked fish pond that supplied them a lot of fish, he said they ate fish about every meal prepared in a number of different ways, they were preparing for the catastrophe that’s suppose to happen in the year of 2012, the ancient people, the MAYOES or something like that had said that would be the year the world was to end.
You would think that they would have the manners enough to let God in on it, I’m sure He’d like to know about it so that He could try to work it in to fit His schedule. I hope it don’t mess God up don’t you? This is sure enough proof that this man and his wife know nothing about God.
The rapture is the next thing to take place on His prophetic calendar, this world is burned up after the Millennial reign of Christ, and that last 1000 years.
While the White Throne judgment of the lost is under way this earth and every thing in it is burned up.
Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
Notice: from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
In other words, when the lost are brought out of hell to be judged according to their wickedness, the earth and the heaven will be no where in their site, there will be nothing that they can hide behind. Get the picture, their standing before the Great White Throne and seated on this Great White Throne is the Lord Jesus Christ, He could have been their Savoir, but now He is their Judge.
These will be cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
This will be the set time that God will destroy this world with fire and every thing in it, fire is a cleansing agent.
How do we know this?
2 Peter 3:10-12 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,** (possibly from nuclear explosions) and the elements** (matter that holds things together) shall melt with fervent heat,**(extremely hot) the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,**( break down and melt )—here Peter ask a question, listen-- “what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,**( manner of life, conduct, behavior) 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? ”
Now dear listener, this is a prophecy from the Word of God, you don’t want to be here thinking your safe being under the ground, even the ground is going to melt as it’s blown to smithereens.
Being under ground is the best place to be when a tornado comes through, but not at this time, the only safe place to be is with the Lord Jesus.
Listen; I want to show and read to us some O.T. prophecies and then where they are fulfilled in the N.T., dear listener, how can you not be a believer? Listen.
1. Herod´s killing of the infants was foretold in Jeremiah 31:15, and let me point out that it’s Satan behind this because of the promise that God made to him back in Gen.3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel. Satan was trying to kill Jesus even when He was baby, any thing to keep Jesus from dying on the cross, Jesus must die on a cross, no other way. Satan knows this Bible. Jesus said in
