Nuggets – Prophetic Accuracy

Prophetic Accuracy
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20-21)

The Bible records many detailed prophetic predictions. If one prediction is accurate, it might be called coincidence. When dozens (even hundreds) come true, the odds become astronomical.

There are hundreds of fulfilled prophesies related to the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For instance, Micah 5:2 foretold the birthplace of Christ (Bethlehem) centuries before the Lord was born. Isaiah 53:9 tells us where and how the Lord would be buried.

Ezekiel 26:4-5 predicted that the walls of the island fortress of Tyre would be destroyed and scraped clean and become a place for fishermen to dry their nets. When Ezekiel was living, the island fortress of Tyre had not yet been built. Two hundred years later, in 332 B.C., Alexander the Great conquered Tyre by building a causeway from the old mainland city, scraping away everything but bare rock.

Of course, many prophecies remain to be fulfilled in the future. For example, an amazing prediction was made in Revelation 11:9 that many nations would view the same event within a few days’ time. When that prophecy was recorded, communication and transportation across the Roman Empire took months. Today, billions of people from around the world simultaneously watch the same event over television.

“I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done” (Isaiah 46:9-10). HMM III

Dead Branches

THE RIVER WALK

pruning

I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. (John 15:1-2)

Read: Matthew 12:22 – 13:9, Mark 3:20 – 4:20, Luke 8:1-8

Relate: The autumn months seem to bring Americans together like no other time of year. As the leaves start to fall people will begin inviting their friends and neighbors over on Sunday afternoons and a couple nights a week. Those going out to eat will find themselves having random conversations that will spontaneously begin with neighboring tables and even more random conversations that will be sparked on streets, in shopping centers, and wherever two people gather… and one of them is wearing a sports jersey. This is one way to look at it, here’s another:

What’s your social intelligence quotient

I ran across an ad for a social intelligence seminar the other day. After some digging I discovered the guy giving the seminar made millions in corporate America sharing his ideas for how to behave“within an environment or context”.

The ad proclaimed this social intelligence guru was “grounded in the most recent developments in Social and Organizational Psychology.” This guy “speaks with independence,” the ad said, “but uses the internal language so that he has relevance and cut-through.” He is certified in “Mindset for Resilience and Behavioral Emotional Intelligence”, (whatever that is) according to the ad.

All that gibberish in the ad got me thinking about intelligence. I know about intelligence.  There’s military intelligence, artificial intelligence and government intelligence (which, we all know, is an oxymoron). We all have an intelligence quotient. We even have a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Now there’s “Social Intelligence”. And this guru, they say, can best be described as an“Internal Consultant“.

I have my own Internal Consultant, thank you. He can best be described as the Holy Spirit. The difference between my Internal Consultant and this snake oil salesman is that my Internal Consultant is the Truth.  He’s the Real Deal.  I don’t have to attend a seminar or buy any books or a set of CD’s to know my Internal Consultant. My Internal Consultant is always with me. My Internal Consultant can answer any question I have with His Truth, because my Internal Consultant IS Truth. My Internal Consultant teaches me every day the best way to respond to anyone in anyenvironment or context.

He’s the best social intelligence there has ever been or could ever be.

Philippians 4:12-14 “I Can Do All Things Through Christ”

 

 

INTRODUCTION TO OUR SERIES:

Background to Philippians…

The Apostle Paul wrote the epistle (personal letter) (1:1) to the Philippian church, probably during his imprisonment in Rome. The letter was written from a heart of love and concern for the Philippians. Due to Paul’s imprisonment, he could not personally visit with the church so he sent this letter with Timothy to encourage them and bring back news of their condition to Paul. (2:19).

Some of the main divisions of the book include:

1. Introduction to the book: 1:1-2

2. Paul’s thankfulness for the Philippians: 1:3-11

3. News of Paul’s imprisonment and dedication: 1:12-26

4. Following Christ’s example is our duty: 1:27-2:18

5. Paul’s representatives and the need to treat them kindly: 2:19-30

6. Paul’s example of living a joyous life: 3:1-11

7. The Christian’s heavenly calling: 3:12-21

8. The need for Godly living: 4:1-9

9. The love offerings of the Philippians: 4:10-20

Powerless

Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Next time you feel defeated remember the enemy cannot stand against Jesus Christ who lives in us.

THE RIVER WALK

powerless

I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going. (John 14:30-31)

Read: Jeremiah 2:31 – 4:18, Colossians 1:1-17, Psalm 76:1-12, Proverbs 24:21-22

Relate: Instead of embedding this youtube video I have simply posted the link. That way, those of you who might get squeamish about watching a chicken getting its head cut off can avoid watching if you wish. For the rest of you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn7j17Cc7KQ

In a very brief google search, not only did I find this video but I noticed that wikipedia has entries both for headless chicken and for Mike. If you don’t know about Mike, you really should take a moment to read up. Not only is Mike the coolest chicken…

Nuggets – Historical Accuracy

Historical Accuracy
“God that made the world and all things therein . . . hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation.” (Acts 17:24, 26)

The biblical record is full of testable historical and archaeological data, unlike the sacred texts of other religions. Wherever such historical information is cited, the data have proven to be precise and trustworthy. It has been subjected to the minutest scientific textual analysis possible to humanity and has been proven to be authentic in every way.

The Bible has been a significant source book for secular archaeology, helping to identify such ancient figures as Sargon (Isaiah 20:1), Sennacherib (Isaiah 37:37), Horam of Gezer (Joshua 10:33), Hazar (Joshua 15:27), and the nation of the Hittites (Genesis 15:20). The biblical record, unlike other “scriptures,” is historically set, opening itself up for testing and verification. Nineteenth-century critics used to deny the historicity of the Hittites, the Horites, the Edomites, and various other peoples, nations, and cities mentioned in the Bible. Few critics question the geographical and ethnological reliability of the Bible today.

The names of over 40 kings of various countries mentioned in the Bible have all been found in contemporary documents and inscriptions outside of the Old Testament, and are consistent with the times and places associated with them in the Bible. Nothing exists in ancient literature that has been even remotely as well confirmed in historical accuracy as has the Bible.

“Every word of God is pure. . . . Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:5-6). HMM III
