Other Prophesy

Genesis 3:14,15 “And Jehovah God proceeded to say to the serpent: “Because you have done this thing, you are the cursed one out of all the domestic animals and out of all the wild beasts of the field. Upon your belly you will go and dust is what you will eat all the days of your life. And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heal.”

  1.  We understand this to be between Satan and Jesus. However, it can also be extended in principle to Jesus’ brothers who “conquer” Satan – And actually one could go deeper and portray Jesus’ brothers in our time as being like Eve in the fact that they are deceived. They do not realize it yet but they have deceived themselves into thinking that a “false saying” is good. See Isaiah 9:13-17; Jeremiah 17:13; Revelation 3:21; 17:14 comments

Genesis 18:18,19 “Why, Abraham is surely going to become a nation great and mighty, and all the nations of the earth must bless themselves by means of him. For I have become acquainted with him in order that he may command his sons and his household after him so that they shall keep Jehovah’s way to do righteousness and judgment;; in order that Jehovah may certainly bring upon Abraham what he has spoken about him.”

  1.  Compare Isaiah 11:1-10; Zechariah 9:9,10; Revelation 6:9,10; 22:1,2

Exodus 32:11-14 “And Moses proceeded to soften the face of Jehovah his God and to say: “Why, O Jehovah, should your anger blaze against your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand? Why should the Egyptians say, ‘With evil intent he brought them out in order to kill them among the mountains and to exterminate them from the surface of the ground’? Turn from your burning anger and feel regret over the evil against your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac and Israel your servants, to whom you swore by yourself, in that you said to them, ‘I shall multiply YOUR seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land that I have designated I shall give to YOUR seed, that they may indeed take possession of it to time indefinite.’ ” (vs.14) “And Jehovah began to feel regret over the evil that he had spoken of doing to his people.”

  1.  This is a good example of how Jehovah changes what he does in order to fulfill his word. – Compare Isaiah 48:9-11; 65:8,9; Ezekiel 36

Psalms 2:1-3 “Why have the nations been in tumult And the national groups themselves kept muttering an empty thing? The kings of earth take their stand And high officials themselves have massed together as one Against Jehovah and against his anointed one, [Saying:] “Let us tear their bands apart And cast their cords away from us!”

  1.  This can apply to the nations “dashing .. the power of the holy people to pieces” and/or when the kings of the entire inhabited earth are gathered “together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.” However, because of the language used, I believe it has its main fulfillment as mentioned in Revelation 16:14. – See Daniel 12:7; Revelation 16:14

Psalms 2:4-9 “The very One sitting in the heavens will laugh; Jehovah himself will hold them in derision. At that time he will speak to them in his anger And in his hot displeasure he will disturb them, {Saying:] “I, even I, have installed my king Upon Zion, my holy mountain.” Let me refer to the decree of Jehovah; He has said to me: “You are my son; I, today, I have become your father. Ask of me, that I may give nations as your inheritance And the ends of the earth as your own possession. You will break them with an iron scepter, As though a potter’s vessel you will dash them to pieces.”

  1.  Compare Ezekiel 17:22-24; Psalms 110:1; Daniel 2:44; Revelation 5:5,9,10,12,13; 19:11-21

Psalms 2:10-12 “And now, O kings, exercise insight; Let yourselves be corrected, O judges of the earth. Serve Jehovah with fear And be joyful with trembling. Kiss the son, that He may not become incensed And YOU may not perish [from] the way, For his anger flares up easily. Happy are those taking refuge in him.”

  1.  Compare Ezekiel 18:21,22; Micah 5:15; Zechariah 8:22; Revelation 11:11-18

Psalms 14:2,3 “As for Jehovah, he has looked down from heaven itself upon the sons of men, To see whether there exists anyone having insight, anyone seeking Jehovah. They have all turned aside, they are [all] alike corrupt; There is no one doing good, Not even one.” – See Elijah page

Psalms 110:1 “The utterance of Jehovah to my Lord is: “Sit at my right hand Until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.”

  1.  Compare Psalms 2:4-9; Daniel 7:14

Psalms 110:5-6 “Jehovah himself at your right hand Will certainly break kings to pieces on the day of his anger. He will execute judgment among the nations; He will cause a fullness of dead bodies. He will certainly break to pieces the head one over a populous land.”

Luke 15:11-32 “Prodigal son”

Luke 17:20-21 See The difference between the coming and the arrival of the kingdom of God

Luke 21 – See Matthew 24

Luke 21:8 “He said: “Look out that YOU are not misled; for many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The due time has approached.’ Do not go after them.”

  1. Notice this is taking about “false Christs” because not only do they claim the time has approached (which can be true) but they also claim to be Jesus.

Luke 21:24 “and they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the nations, until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled.” – Compare Matthew 24:15

Luke 22:28-30 “However, YOU are the ones that have stuck with me in my trials; and I make a covenant with YOU, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom, that YOU may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the twelve tribes of Israel.”  Compare Isaiah 61:5-9 comments

Luke 24:25-27, 44-48 “So he said to them: “O senseless ones and slow in heart to believe on all the things the prophets spoke! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into his glory? And commencing at Moses and all the Prophets he interpreted to them things pertaining to himself in all the Scriptures. (vs.44) He now said to them: “These are my words which I spoke to YOU while I was yet with YOU, that all the things written in the law of Moses and in the Prophets and Psalms about me must be fulfilled. Then he opened up their minds fully to grasp the meaning of the Scriptures, and he said to them: “In this way it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from among the dead on the third day, and on the basis of his name repentance for forgiveness of sins would be preached in all the nations – starting out from Jerusalem, YOU are to be witnesses of these things.”

  1. See Isaiah 52:12 thru 53:12
  2.  This is a good example of how someone can come to understand scriptures in a short period of time with God’s support.

John 5:28,29 “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”

  1.  Compare Isaiah 25:7,8; Daniel 12:1,2; Revelation 20;11,12; 21:3,4

Acts 15:14-18 “Symeon has related thoroughly how God for the first time turned his attention to the nations to take out of them a people for his name. And with this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written, ‘After these things I shall return and rebuild the booth of David that is fallen down; and I shall rebuild its ruins and erect it again, in order that those who remain of the men may earnestly seek Jehovah, together with people of all the nations, people who are called by my name, says Jehovah, who is doing these things, known from of old.’ ”  See Isaiah 45:20-25; Amos 9:11,12

1 Corinthians 15:23,24 “But each one in his own rank: Christ the first fruits, afterward those who belong to the Christ during his presence. Next, the end…”

  1. The Interlinear Bible: “but each in his own order: Christ, the first-fruit; afterward those of Christ at his coming. Then is the end -..”
  2. See the difference between “coming” and “presence” in Matthew 24:39 Also, it can be rendered of three parties mentioned here: Christ, the “first fruits” and “those of Christ at his coming”. But the context seems to favor two parties. However, when studying the context, it appears that Paul was simply showing that Jesus was to be resurrected first of the humans who died. Then those who belong to Jesus would be resurrected during his presence/coming. Those who “belong” to Jesus during his parousia (3952) can include all who submit to him and in this case, it seems to be referring to those who are resurrected possibly to rule with Jesus and/or as subjects of the kingdom. See Revelation 14:4; Zechariah 3:1-7; Revelation 11:1; Daniel 12:1,2
  3. Notice that there are two parts of the one group that will rule with Christ. One part is considered “measurable” because their worship was acceptable. The other part (from our day) has to undergo three and a half years of “sackcloth” because they were “wicked” and they need to be “straightened out” in their worship so it can be “measured”. – Zechariah 5:8; Revelation 6:9-11; 11:1-3 comments

2 Timothy 3:1-7 “But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather then lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power, and from these turn away. For from these arise those men who slyly work their way into households and lead as their captives weak women loaded down with sins, led by various desires, always learning and yet never able to come to an accurate knowledge of truth.”

  1.  Notice that this entire passage can refer to the world of mankind in our day and it can and probably has a more important figurative fulfillment with God’s people today who are needing to be cleansed. Compare Daniel 11:32-35; Jeremiah 25:27-30; Matthew 24:12.
  2.  The phrase “disobedient to parents” can refer to a turning away from a straight spiritual course – Compare Malachi 4:5,6 and comments
