Bible Prophecy Instructs About Coming Events
Bible prophecy places a limit on the time that is now. It tells us that things will not always continue as they are. A change is coming.
The thought of some day standing face to face with Jesus puts an urgency on our need to obey Him, to be like Him, to be pure as He is pure so that we can face Him unashamed (1 John 2:28; 3:3).
The Scriptures warn frequently that the real reason for being pre-informed (prophecy) is so we can be prepared for what is coming. We prepare by applying what we learn. Prophecy is always followed with an impelling “therefore,” either spoken or implied.
Jesus said on one occasion, “My Father worketh hitherto, and I work” (John 5:17). The Apostle Paul said that we are “his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”(Eph. 2:10). Again Jesus said in parable,“Occupy till I come”(Luke 19:13).
