Prophecy – History is God’s Story

History is God’s story, so no world or human event is a surprise to God. Timing and events are in His hands. Ultimately God will be in full control, but for a short time evil (the Devil) has a little freedom. Ultimately God will fully expressed through every human being, some happily in heaven, some in unhappiness.

Overview of Bible Prophecy
1. prophecy about the Lord’s first coming (happened 2000 years ago)
2. prophecy about the Lord’s second coming (future)
3. some Bible prophecy is about BOTH (Isaiah 9:6, and Daniel)
4. it seems there are more verses in the Bible about His second return, than the first.

In the Lord’s first coming, He came as a man (yet fully God and fully man) and as a lamb to be crucified on a cross for our sins, then rose from the dead and ascended to heaven.

In the Lord’s second coming He will come as a warrior to conquer an evil earth that does not represent God’s character. He will rule the earth from Jerusalem.

Most of the prophecy in the Bible is about Jesus Christ, but there is also some about Israel and the Church.

Some say one third of the Bible is Bible prophecy. There are over 2500 prophecies in the Bible. About 80 percent of those have already been fulfilled, and 20 percent are yet future.

Bible writers talked about prophecy the most: Jesus, Paul, Daniel, David, Ezekiel, Isaiah

Bible Overview, in connection with studying Prophecy

The two half’s of the Bible
* Old Testament with 39 books points to and promises Jesus Christ the Redeemer – Promises, Types, figures of Christ
* New Testament with 27 books is all about Jesus Christ, our redeemer – Fulfillment of all the promises and types of Christ

The first and the last books
* The book of Genesis — Beginnings
* God, man, garden, (devil comes in) sin, promise of a redeemer
* The book of Revelation – Conclusion
* God, man, a city (heaven), (devil cast out), sin forgiven, the redeemer on the throne

Some questions that come up:
1. Will the Lord come again – YES
2. Do we know when or the date – NO (even the Lord does not know, how could we know)
3. Will there be an anti-christ – YES, see Revelation 13
4. Do we know who it might be – NO

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night — 1 Thessalonians 5:2

Fear Fear Not Mary — an Encouraging Christmas song

This is maybe a Christmas song, but it applies to all who sometimes in fear need to do something that is a little hard to do or maybe beyond what we normally would do.

This Christmas song is encouragement for those of us called to a special ministry like Joseph and Mary who brought forth Jesus. We are all called to express Jesus in a special way.

Don’t fear, just follow God. God will do wonders.

 Title:  Fear Fear Not Mary

Fear…Fear not Mary
You have favor with God
God will do wonders
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
You will conceive Jesus
The Savior, the Redeemer, the Messiah
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
He shall be great, Wonderful
Call His name Jesus
Just follow God and fear not

Fear…Fear not Mary
God will do wonderful things
Call His name Jesus
Just follow God and fear not

Just follow, follow, follow and fear not
Just follow, follow, follow and fear not
Just follow, follow, follow and fear not

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flow’r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Bethlehem Bethlehem, His Name Is Jesus – New Christmas Song

Enjoy this new Christmas song called: Bethlehem Bethlehem, His Name Is Jesus

Bethlehem, a town in ancient Biblical Israel where Jesus was born feels so small, but out of Bethlehem came Jesus the King, the Messiah.  This is based on Micah 5:2 which is a prophecy about the city of Bethlehem. The verse seems to indicate that the city felt too small and unimportant to do anything significant. But from this city came Jesus Christ. Jesus is King and Redeemer. This is the real meaning of Christmas.

Here are the beautiful words:

Title: Bethlehem Bethlehem, His name is Jesus

Bethlehem Bethlehem, I feel you are so small
Yet born in you a King, we call our Emmanuel
He shall be called Jesus, born of a virgin
His name is Jesus, our Savior, our Redeemer

Bethlehem Bethlehem, I feel you are so small
Yet born in you a Ruler, we call our King
He shall be great, He will rule forever
He shall be called the Son of the Highest

(bridge)

Bethlehem Bethlehem, I feel you are so small
Yet born in you Jesus, we call our Messiah
Jesus the Son of God, Jesus the Son of man
His name is Jesus, our Savior, our Redeemer

His name is Jesus
His name is Jesus
Jesus

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray – Passion Easter Week Song

This is a new song from John 15:7 where during Passion Easter Week Jesus is teaching on Prayer.

John 15:7 says: If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you. So for prayer there are two conditions: abiding in the Lord and Abiding in His word (the Bible).

the Lyrics are: If you abide in Me
If you let My word Abide in you
What you pray shall be done
Abide abide and pray pray pray
God answers according to His will

If you abide in Me
If you let My word Abide in you
What you pray shall be done
Abide abide and pray pray pray
God answers according to His will

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray - New Passion Week Song

Abide in Me and Pray Pray Pray – New Passion Week Song

Whatever you ask in My name

Prayer is one of the most power things we can do. Prayer connects us with God, who is the creator of the universe.
Consider this verse in John 14 encouraging us to pray in the name of Jesus.

Whatever you ask in My name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it – John 14:13-14

Prayer Song: Just a little Faith in Prayer – Speak To The Mountain – 4k video – Kauai Hawaii

Prayer song:   Just a little Faith in Prayer – Speak To The Mountain.  

Jesus said: If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you…(Matthew 17:20)

The video scenery is from Kauai Hawaii.

So prayer sometime requires just a little faith to speak to our situation.

The lyrics are:

Speak to the mountain – Go
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain – Be removed
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Jesus teaches us to pray in faith
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain

Don’t give up
Don’t give in

Jesus teaches us to pray in faith
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need
(repeat)

Speak to the mountain – Go
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need

Speak to the mountain – Be removed
Just a little faith
Just a little faith in prayer
That’s all you need
