Oracles of God: prophecy study

by Verna Hargrove

A SIMPLE STUDY OF PROPHECY: Daniel, Zechariah, Revelation:
The holy man, Daniel, prophesied that the Messiah, Jesus, would present himself as king of the Jews on a certain day. It happened as he said. The time measured was from the time the decree went forth to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem until would be cut off. Scholars say that the time expired exactly the day Jesus rode the donkey into Jerusalemâ??just before he was crucified. He rose from the dead one week afterward. Daniel prophesied that there would be seven sets of seven, and sixty-two sevens until the savior would come. At which time, the price for all sin would be paid. An event that required faith and faith alone in the Son of God.
“God gave this prophecy to Daniel when the city of Jerusalem lay in ruins. Its walls had been completely destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar’s attack of 586 BC. Daniel prophesied the precise number of years that would pass before the Messiah would come. Seven plus 62 adds up to 69 weeks of years, or a total of 483 years. The text says, “It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.” The city was rebuilt seventy years after Babylon destroyed it.
The prophecy concerning the death of the Messiah was to begin the day the order went forth to rebuild Jerusalem. It was on that day that the clock began to tick off the time.
The prophet Zechariah was given visions and messages from God. We learn much about end time events in this book.The Lord himself will fight against those nations that turns on Israel during the tribulation. Zechariah reminded the people of how God fought for them in times past. Then the splendid verse is given. On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives will split apart, making a wide valley running from east to west, for half the mountain will move toward the north and half toward the south. Israel will flee through the valley across to Azal. They will flee as you did from an earthquake long ago. Jesus will come, and all his holy ones with him, which I believe includes us. Light will not shine, yet there will be continuous day! There will be no normal day and night, for at evening time it will still be light. Life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously both in summer and in winter. King Jesus will reign over all the earth on that day. God will make him king and Lord. His name alone will be worshiped.
All prophecies about end times has Israel back in the land and ruling her own land. That is the situation now. Jesus could come any day. Our part is to be ready. We have to understand that we needed someone to forgive our sins, and Jesus took our place by dying for us. We can come before the Father clean and forgiven because of Jesus. We stay ready for Jesus to come by living close to God in our prayers and Bible study. Meeting with other believed increases our strength. Matthew Henry says, “Divers things were foretold, in the latter chapters, which should come to pass in that day.” This speaks of a ‘day of the Lord that cometh,’ a day of his judgment, and ten times in the foregoing chapters, and seven times in this, it is repeated, ‘in that day,’ but what that day is that is here meant is uncertain, and perhaps will be so (as the Jews speak) until Elias comes; whether it refer to the whole period of time from the prophet’s days to the days of the Messiah, or to some particular events in that time, or to Christ’s coming, and the setting up of his kingdom upon the ruins of the Jewish property. A blessing is pronounced on all who read, hear and keep the words given to John in the Book of Revelation. The next thing he says is that “the time is at hand.” This may seem odd since it has been over 2000 years. The Bible is true.
