Prophecy: The foretelling or prediction of what is to come.
This Creator God goes far beyond the usual bounds of our natural lives, you see, He lives outside of what we call “time”, therefore, He can tell us things that are in our future because He has already been there. He has seen the end from before the beginning and knows all our days. He has read the last chapter and sees it all. As we read His Word in this bible that He has given us, there are many prophecies, one of which I present here;
2Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
This bible He has given us is what I like to call the manual or book of instructions and as the saying goes, when all else fails, and it surely is these days, look at the instructions.
