first that I noticed was in the Garden of Eden. God said to the serpent, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed, he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” (Genesis 3:15) This to me is a prophecy of the coming Messiah.
Then again, a prophet Isaiah, who wrote many things and events about the coming Messiah. He even wrote about a virgin who will conceive a son. (see Luke 2)
As I dug deeper into the prophecies, which we are able to do thanks to the knowledge that is available to us. Another prophecy is, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end, many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Every day there is new knowledge on the internet and people constantly traveling to and fro.
I look around, and I see prophecy after prophecy, and I can’t help but think that maybe all those prophecies are coming to an end, and one will be left. John 14:1-3 says, “Let not your heart be troubled. In my father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have not told you. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself, that where I am, there you may be also.” This is my favorite prophecy of them all!
In the end, this prophecy is what all the other prophecies lead up to: a kingdom that Jesus promised to those who seek him. And that is exactly what I intend to do: seek Jesus.
In His Name,
Our staff is voluntold each week and with grace they share their thoughts.
