Prophetic Map from Genesis to Revelation


The Lord has claimed that He ALONE can declare the future.  "I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done" Isaiah 46:9-10.   "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed"   (2 Peter 1:19).

Genesis and Revelation form the greatest testimony to the Sovereign hand of God in the entire Bible.  Taken apart they give the clearest pictures possible of the beginning and ending of planet earth.  Taken together, they form the greatest map of God's Plan unfolding in this universe.

One of the strong evidences of divine inspiration of the Bible (not found in other religious books of either past or present) consists of its hundreds of fulfilled prophecies.  These are not vague or ambiguous (as in various occult writings) but are specific and detailed, often made hundreds or thousands of years in advance of the event.  Many are being fulfilled today, thereby indicating the probable soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

So, the most powerful evidence that God wrote the Bible is the phenomenon of fulfilled prophecy.  The Bible is unique among all the religious books of mankind in this respect.  Some of them contain a few vague forecasts, but nothing comparable to the vast number of specific prophecies found in the Bible. 

There has never been any person, angel or demon who could predict specific events and personages that will appear scores or even hundreds of years in the future.  Only God can do this, because it is He "who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will"  (Ephesians 1:11).   Consequently, it is in His Word, the Holy Scriptures, and only there, that prophecies of this sort are found.
