Please open with me to Matthew 24.
The disciples ask Jesus a question that interests all of us, I’m so glad they did. Follow along as they ask in Matthew 24:3, and as Jesus answers them in verses 8 and 33.
Some months ago, I had some unexpected time to think about the future. I sat on an airplane in Albany, NY for over four hours, and then got stranded for another 12 hours in Chicago.
I was studying Biblical Eschatology or as I like to call it, “What’s Next?” I was examining just how much God has left for us to know about the future. Here is what I found summarized by a series of NUMBERS!
I hold in my hand the ONE Book that God wrote—the Bible.
This one book, made up of 66 books has a total of 31,103 verses.
Of those, just about 2,040 verses with 215 specific predictions from God about the end of the world are in process of being fulfilled.
So, the Bible contains many specific events that would signal the end of days for life on planet earth as it has been for the past several thousand years.
Each of the prophetic signs Christ and His apostles gave are specific and not vague.
