All biblical prophecy is about a Person – the Person of Jesus Christ. All biblical prophecy looked forward to Him and is fulfilled in Him.
God Himself chose to come to earth and live as a human being – Jesus of Nazareth by name. After being raised from the dead, He ascended back to heaven. From there He orchestrated the coming of the kingdom of God by which the entire universe is now governed. This all occurred on the biblical timeline, which means it was concluded around the latter part of the 1st Century A.D.
People who teach any Bible prophecy today by speaking of a yet future fulfillment have missed the main point of the Scriptures: Jesus Christ. I say it again: all Bible prophecy has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. (For more, see All Bible Prophecy Has Been Fulfilled in the Introduction to A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus.)
If you want to understand Bible prophecy, understand first that it speaks of Jesus Christ. If you don’t understand how it speaks to you of Him, don’t worry about it. One day you will. Until you do, don’t attempt to apply any other interpretation to the verse. No scripture is a matter of human interpretation; the Holy Spirit inspired its writing, therefore let the Holy Spirit inspire its understanding.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
