“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105
They could have known when the Messiah/Christ would come riding on a donkey into Jerusalem (Daniel 9:25; Luke 19:28-42), when He would be killed (Daniel 9:26; Isaiah 53:8) and that He would die with criminals (Isaiah 53:9).
All they had to do was read their Scriptures.
We can know the events leading up to our Messiah’s/Christ’s return. For example, the technology where someone can’t “buy or sell” without following the party line and the will to use it is here (Revelation 13:17). Just ask the Canadian truckers and the person behind the WikiLeaks who couldn’t access their funds even though they were never convicted of a crime in a court of law!
All we have to do is read our Scriptures.
It’s not politics. It’s not government. It’s not the environment. It’s not inflation. It’s not the anti-God value system being taught in our public schools and higher forms of education.
Jesus has spoken about all of these in the Scriptures. He did this for a few of reasons. One, so we are not caught off guard by these events. And two, so our trust in them will deepen.
If God can write about tomorrow with such accuracy, we can certainly trust Him with our choices today.
My friend, now is the time to be in and to know the Word of God experientially. Do this to increase your love for Jesus with each choice, which only increases your peace no matter what comes next on the world’s historical timeline.
We might not be able to change the course of history; but, we can change the world one life at a time. It starts with yours. Be in and walk with the Word of God, Jesus. Others need your experiences with Jesus to help change their lives as well.
