Reliable Information About the Last Days: Where? – Part Two

information

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
–2Timothy 2:15

IF the reader is serious about insight into events which have not yet taken place, he should STUDY God’s Word, not just READ it.

In Part One, the Book of Revelation–perhaps the best source of what is soon to happen–was covered.

In Part Two, other good sources of such info will be focused upon.

2- BOOK OF DANIEL

The Book of Daniel–particularly Chapters 2 and 7-12 contain MANY prophecies relating to events in the last days before Jesus Christ returns to earth.

It is fairly clear that the prophecies God gave to Daniel were not fully understood by the prophet.  It is suspected that Daniel would be more able to make sense of that information were he alive in 2021.

The Book of Daniel was usually popular with the apostate teachers because the Book of Daniel was SEALED (not able to be YET understood according to God’s timetable).

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
–Daniel 12:4

(Daniel is also the source of the apostate myth of the Seventieth Week of Daniel, an invented story about which the Bible is COMPLETELY and UTTERLY silent. Because Daniel was a SEALED book for centuries, few understood that, largely because of this, it was’open season’ on Daniel.)

Many who study God’s Word believe Daniel to be the best OLD TESTAMENT book on prophecy.

3- MATTHEW (Chapter 24), with parallel accounts in MARK(13), LUKE (21) and LUKE 17:20-37)

These accounts focus on Jesus’ last night of freedom in Jerusalem and His prophecies when His disciples asked Him what was to take place.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,  Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
–Mark 13:3-5

These chapters are like a condensed version of the data found in the Book of Revelation.

IF the reader doesn’t wish to spend a lot of time searching and wishes a quick course in the events which are to shortly take place, these chapters can serve as the centerpiece for such information.

4- BOOK OF ISAIAH

There is so many prophecies in the Book of Isaiah, we’ve included the entire book.
Best Prophetic Bible Chapters on the End Times

Occasionally, the information given in Isaiah may seem to be ‘throwaway‘ because of 1) Isaiah’s not making much comment about his information; and, 2) how quickly the prophet moves on from these glimpses into the future.

At other times, the Book of Isaiah devotes long stretches to this info.

“Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.  Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”
—Isaiah 63:1-4

Isaiah is also the Book which probably has the most clear prophecies of Jesus Christ, the suffering servant.

IF the reader decides to devote study time to the Book of Isaiah, he should make sure he has PLENTY of time to devote.

In the Book of Isaiah, end times prophecy is LIBERALLY sprinkled throughout the 66 chapters of the Book.

5- THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL (particularly Chapters 38-39)

The Book of Ezekiel gives another view of the Battle of Armageddon in Chapters 38-39.

Although false teachers have had a field day turning these two Chapters of Ezekiel into an entirely different conflict, it is WITHOUT A DOUBT a view of the battle of Armageddon.

6- OTHER GOOD SOURCES OF END TIMES INFORMATION

These may, at some future point, be expounded upon.

At any rate, they ALL contain much reliable information about what is to take place in the future.

  1. Book of Joel 1-3
  2. Book of Zechariah 1-14
  3. Book of Zephaniah 1-3
  4. Book of Jeremiah, chapters 50-51
  5. 2Thessalonians 2

IS the reader interested (if only just a little bit) in what is to take place in the time before Jesus returns to earth?

HAS the reader searched for information about the last days from UNRELIABLE sources?

IF the reader has explored UNRELIABLE (other than what is declared in God’s Word) sources of information, he should KNOW that this info is HIGHLY suspect and UNRELIABLE.

It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
