Prophecy In View
Daily Reading – Isa. 20-24 / Phil. 1
Isaiah 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Some people today say, the bible is an old book. The Bible is not relevant today. Everything that it says, has nothing to do with modern day events. I remember working in a factory back in the 1990’s in Holland, Michigan . I was witnessing to a man there who said, can you show me even one prophecy in the bible that is coming true today. Being a young Christian, I said, let me go home and study that a bit and pray about it and I will give you and answer. That night a very rare thing happened. There was an earthquake so strong in Ohio that the tremors were felt all the up in Holland, Mi. I went back to work the next day and asked him, do you know there are nations fighting against one another today? He said yes. I asked, do you know of the famines in northern Africa in the news? He said yes. I finally asked, did you feel the earthquake last night? He said yes, that was weird. I said, would you believe me if I told you Jesus predicted those things in the Bible? He said where? I pointed to Matt. 24:7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” He was speechless.
Today’s verse in Isaiah 24:5 is prophecy we can view in the daily news. Earth’s inhabitants have defiled this planet. God’s laws, and His Word mean very little. What is not liked, is twisted or re-written. Prophesy is not just to come, it’s now.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
In the same chapter of Matthew that spoke of the earthquake, in Matthew 24:44 it says; “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
Are you still waiting for a sign?
