JESUS IDENTIFIES THE FINAL GENERATION
Prophecy by the Numbers of the Biblical Signs of His Coming
Matthew 24:3, 8, 33
Please open with me to Matthew 24.
The disciples ask Jesus a question that interests all of us, I’m so glad they did. Follow along as they ask in Matthew 24:3, and as Jesus answers them in verses 8 and 33.
This week I was examining just how much God has left for us to know about the future. Here is what I found summarized by a series of NUMBERS!
I hold in my hand the ONE Book that God wrote—the Bible.
That one book has TWO parts—the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Those two parts are made up of SIXTY-SIX individual books we call the 39 Old Testament books and the 27 New Testament books.
This one book, made up of 66 books has a total of 31,103 verses.
Of all the verses in the Bible, 8,352 verse are prophetic or spoke to future events. All Biblical predictions about the future in these thousands of verses can be grouped into 737 different predictions.
Of these 8,352 verses, 6,312 (or 522 different predictions) have already happened to the letter, JUST LIKE God’s Word said they would.
That leaves just about 2,040 verses with 215 specific predictions from God about the end of the world that are in process of being fulfilled.
So, the Bible contains many specific events that would signal the end of days for life on planet earth as it has been for the past several thousand years.
Each of the prophetic signs Christ and His apostles gave are specific and not vague.
Jesus explained to us in Matthew 24, verses 8 and 33-34—that these events would begin at the same time, run concurrently, and crescendo like the pains of a woman giving birth—the closer we get to His Second coming.
Matthew 24:8, 33-34 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.
The list of Biblical Signs of Christ’s Return will not actually be full-blown until the Tribulation time.
Each of the signs of Christ’s Return He said–are trends.
These trends are speeding up—the last seconds of the countdown clock of Christ’s return are clicking down.
Each day the prophetic picture Christ painted grows clearer.
