5 Stories From The Bible About Prophecy

Here are 5 stories from the Bible about prophecy.

Spirit Driven

We must understand that all Scripture is the Word of God and is inspired by God and has as its source, the Spirit of God, “For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).  God’s will has been done as God’s Words were recorded by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit…they wrote down the words as the very breath of God, not man.

Secrets Revealed

God’s Word says there is a blessing for anyone who reads the Book of Revelation (Revelation 1:3), and it’s a blessing because we get to see into the future and look at the coming kingdom or New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-4, 22:1-21), so it is absolutely true that “the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).

False Prophets

It was true then and it’s still true today; many false prophets have gone out in the world, and a few even into the churches, so we’re warned that “false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction” (2 Peter 2:1).

Difficult Days Ahead

Looking at the world in general, it does appear that we’re in the last days, although no one knows when Jesus will return, “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy” (2 Timothy 3:1-2).  I don’t need to convince you that this prophecy has come true.

Beginning to End

We cannot see around the corners of time like God can.  That’s because He says, “I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning  and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose” (Isaiah 46:9b-10).  Who can interfere or change what God has spoken to come to pass?
