UNVEILING BIBLE PROPHECIES
When one take a look at both the ancient and modern seven wonders of the world, it all comes down to human-designed and manmade structures of engineering magnificence that blow the mind away.
However, there is another ancient wonder that echoes its magnificence even into the modern age, one so great that it cast a shadow over all the other so-called wonders, but it will never make the grade for the reason that it is so humble, so unobtrusive, that it is bound to be overlooked in this quest for the greatest because… it is just a book!
Just a book? Okay, it looks just like any other book of our modern age, meaning a lot of paper printed on both sides and set within a cover with its name on the front. Like other boos we also get this one in electronic formats, but unlike other books, the name of the author is never mentioned. Yes, your guess is correct: I am referring to THE BIBLE!
This Book is the best seller of all times but, unfortunately, not the best read. The Author of the Bible explains the reason for this state of affairs through His prophet Isaiah:
Isa.29:10-12 “For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”
THE BIBLE IS SEALED, PERIOD! And that is the principal reason why there is not a single translation of the Bible in the world! Yes, there are a myriad of different interpretations, but nowhere in the world a single translation! Some Bible interpreters will say that the verses I quoted from Isaiah pertains to the Jews, and I will answer with: yes, it pertains also to the Jews! We must remember that the Jews carried the Holy Scriptures with them in their march through time, so one would expect them to see the light, but if the light is dark for them, how dark is not the dark for those who came in from outside! The many different interpretations of the Bible we get in just one language (like English) is the best proof that the Bible is sealed, period!
The Bible is in a way like the earth. One will find some gems on the surface, but a massive treasure is hidden underground, just waiting to be mined and brought to the surface. The Creator of the earth is also the Author of the Bible and underneath the surface of the Bible God hid most of the pieces of this gigantic jigsaw puzzle that need to be correctly ensembled to put mankind in its correct relation with exactly where it finds itself with regard to the history and future of the Universe.
However, pickaxes and shovels are not going to do the job. Apostle Peter tells us how:
2Pet.1:19-21: “We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Indeed! To get underneath the surface of the Bible one need to be empowered by the Spirit of God. In the verses I quoted here the Apostle Peter tells us who the Author of the Bible is, as well as who the Author will grant the authority to read His mind.
THE MASTER KEY
In the next article I will tell you about the Master Key God wrote into the Bible. Without this key the Bible loses all its prophetic potential and is reduced to the level of just any other book. I hope that your mind will be able to grasp this key, because from there on you can come with me on a spiritual trip so breathtakingly astonishing, that you will not be able to contemplate its full dimension at this point in time.
See you in the next articles.
