Bible Prophecy - Past and Future

Introduction

A prophet gives revelations from God as well as predictions for future events. The test of a true prophet is 100% accuracy. We will first examine some of the Biblical prophecies that have been fulfilled in the past. This study of the 100% accuracy of these amazingly detailed prophecies will offer proof of the Bible's ability to accurately predict future events. Then, with a proven confidence in Biblical prophecy, the last portion of this article presents those Biblical prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled, along with a detailed chronology of the coming events of the end times.

This study of prophecy comes from a pre-millennial perspective. Although universal agreement is not expected, the hope is that this study will offer value to the reader by, at the very least, illustrating the defense of a literal interpretation of prophecy.

Biblical Prophecies Fulfilled in the Past

The Old Testament prophets indeed spoke some amazing predictions, and we will examine only a few of these at the following link:

Biblical Prophecies About the Future

Having seen how accurately the Bible predicts the future, it is only natural to wonder what it says about events that are still in the future for us. However, if the Bible can really tell us the future, why can't we better prepare for it? The answer is that we could, if only we were better aware of Biblical truths.

"As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man." (Matthew 24:37-39)

This passage tells us that the time of the end for us will be treated with skepticism, just as those who perished in the great flood were skeptical. The Bible is full of detailed accounts of the end times, yet most people do not know or understand them. We will now examine these prophecies of coming events. The approach taken in this presentation is to present each Biblical passage which predicts coming events, followed by an explanation of those events. For better understanding, the passages and commentary are presented in chronological order, where appropriate.

However, it should also be noted that one of the most difficult aspects of a study of Bible prophecy is, oddly enough, in identifying which Scriptures are directly relevant to which end time events. This is because these events are not described in chronological order in the Bible. Instead, any given book in the Bible might describe an end time event, as related by the author of that book, but it's often not easy to discern which event is being described. Therefore, many of the articles in the links below are presented with very little commentary; i.e., with only the Scriptures which describe a particular end time event. In these cases, the value of the article lies primarily in simply identifying the appropriate Scriptures for that particular event.
