Prophecy Conforms To Rules Just Like Mathematics – Seeing The Future Using Bible History (11 of 26)
Series 211 - Looking Ahead After Looking Behind
About this video:
I early on concluded that Bible prophecy had to follow a set of rules or else it's a nose of wax that can be manipulated to conform to what someone wants it to be. Obviously this can’t be true or else prophecy is a matter of somebody's interpretation and personal taste.
I studied the history of prophetic interpretation going back to Wycliffe in the 14th century, and even going back to Augustine in the 5th century AD, and I discovered that all of these men end up reading the prophecies and then looking around in their reality and writing how all the prophecies fit together in their current reality. But what happens as realities change through the centuries, is different interpretations begin to occur and become embraced.
When I began studying the prophecies in 1971, I didn't know anything about this subject. I didn't have anything to work with so I just began to read, and I read about this person's view and this other person's view and so on and so forth, and then I began to discover: “Wait a minute. Everybody can't be right. How does this work?” That’s when I began questioning: there's got to be a set of guidelines, a set of rules that determine what this means. And the reason this became so crucial to me is, how do we prove a view to be true or false? There has to be a reasonable answer.
Wake-up America Seminars is a non-profit / non-prophet organization. We are dedicated solely to proclaiming the imminent return of Jesus Christ. We are not affiliated, endorsed, nor sponsored by any religious organization; we, quite frankly, haven't found one that would have us. This is not a clandestine method of getting you to join a church because Wake-up America seminars is not a church — we have no prisoners (members). We are an organization that is dedicated to education. Our mission is to inspire and encourage people into the Word of God, and what church may mean to you or what church may be to you is something between you and your Lord. Finally, the basis for the views presented in this seminar is limited to the Bible; the only authority that I except for matters in doctrine and spiritual guidance come from the Bible.
