Part 3 Signs of the End: Matthew 24: 6,7 …And you will hear of rumors of war for nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
What makes this prediction so amazing is that it wasn’t much more than a hundred years ago that people believed the world was heading toward a time of great moral, material, and spiritual progress. People in the late 19th century and early 20th century thought that mankind had all but arrived, that our great advances in science and technology would usher in a time of peace, prosperity, and wealth in which war would be a thing of the past, the work of barbarous ancients.
That hope lasted only until World war 1, during which technology and science (which was supposed to make us better) were used to kill people in ways that our ancestors couldn’t have imagined. Yet as bad as that war was, it soon followed by World War 2, in which more than 50 million people perished! And who today really thinks that war is a thing of the past? 🤔😊
Here were the best and brightest people a mere hundred years ago, predicting a time when war would be obsolete. And the bible prophecy we just looked at, written almost 2000 years ago, speaks about how wars would increase. Who was right and who was wrong? What does this tell us about how we can trust the bible, especially over the prediction of mere humans?🤔😊
Why can we trust what the bible says?
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable fir doctrine, for proof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
2 Peter 1:20-22 Knowing this first that no prophecy of scripture is if any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
No question about it we have goid reasons to trust in the bible and the signs it shares with us about the end time. Also, the good news is that however horrible these events are, we can draw comfort from knowing that none of this has taken God by surprise that all these things have been predicted 😁
