This is a Taste of What is to Come — 6 Comments

  1. “We’ve come to the place in the Divine story line where the present must give way to the future. Many scholars and Bible students have proposed all sort of things for interpreting what the Bible says about end times, but anything approximating precision is not possible.

    The reason for this is straightforward. Old Testament prophecy for the messianic solution to the salvation of humanity and restoration of Eden was deliberately cryptic. So it is with prophecy yet awaiting fulfillment. The biblical text is riddled with ambiguities that undermine the certainty of modern eschatological systems. The New Testament writers who speak about prophetic fulfillments didn’t always interpret Old Testament literally. Much is communicated through metaphor framed by an ancient Near Eastern worldview. Consequently, our modern expectations about how a given prophecy will “work” are inherently insecure.” Michael S. Heiser – The Unseen Realm – Chapter 39 pg. 349

    • 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Cor. 13

      Of course much of prophecy, particularly that which has not yet been fulfilled, is left to the unfolding of those events outlined in scripture. And yet, even now, God is pouring forth His Spirit upon His servants to help us at this time, as surely we are now living in the very last of the last of days.
