Many people preach a variety of end-time views. It is good on one hand that they are trying to know the plan of God, but many errors are made in the process. Often we see teachers basically saying that we need to believe what they believe and sadly, that is precisely why many do not dare venture into prophecy. Who to choose? Who do they follow? Nobody that is who. 99% or more will fail because they cannot all be right can they.
So where do we turn? Turn to God. He will reveal to us his plan in his time. Read the scriptures with an open mind and a heart toward God. Do not subscribe to a particular prophetic view, but be aware of them and watch the signs. Watch, watch, and watch. And be ready.
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
You do not know what will happen tomorrow. Man does not even know he will be alive tomorrow, let alone know what he will do tomorrow.
Jehovah challenged the idols to prove they are gods. God can show us what will happen, declaring things to come hereafter. Man cannot, but God can. If idols cannot, then they are not gods.
God declares new things before they spring forth. This proves He deserves to be honored as God. That honor should go to no one else
God is the true God and there is no other, for He can declare the end from the beginning, even from ancient times things that are not yet done.
Now for a warning.
If a man attempts to predict the future and fails, we can know that the Lord did not speak through Him.
When a prophet predicts the future and the prediction comes true, this is evidence that the Lord sent him.
Sometimes prophecy is realised after the event
Jesus said in John 13:19
“From now on I am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that I am He.”
See that. Not all prophecy is given so that we can know in advance the exact details. I believe that people over-reach in prophecy and believe that God wants us to know all the details beforehand. Trying to know every detail beforehand can lead men to craft false theories to fill in the gaps. But maybe God has not revealed it yet.
This is why I say to watch. Look for the signs. Do not subscribe wholeheartedly to any theory and ignore the signs and events going on around us, (that may contradict your view). Be wise and be a watchman not a soothsayer.
