What exactly is Prophecy?

The word "Prophecy" conjures up a host of "religious" thoughts, doesn't it? Scenes of "doom and gloom," the "end of the world," and ugly wars. What is the reality behind the concept of prophecy? In order to understand prophecy, you need to understand where WE are in the scheme of things. By "WE," I mean primarily the US and British Commonwealth. (*See references below) There have never been countries as great as these two, yet is it logical to conclude that the Bible would NOT mention these countries in prophecy?

Let's first understand what prophecy IS and ISN'T. Most presume that prophecy is simply God writing down what He sees in the future. This concept presumes that God already knows exactly what decisions everyone will make, and exactly how everything is going to go, as if He were simply watching a movie. However, is this the truth?

Let's take a look at some of the scriptures that will help clear up this confusion:

Isaiah 46:9-11 "Remember the former things of old, For I [am] God, and [there is] no other; [I am] God, and [there is] none like Me, :10 Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times [things] that are not [yet] done, Saying, 'My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,' :11 Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man who executes My counsel, from a far country. Indeed I have spoken [it;] I will also bring it to pass. I have purposed [it;] I will also do it."

Jeremiah 11:8 "yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but everyone followed the dictates of his evil heart; therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded [them] to do, but [which] they have not done."

POINT: If you do a search of all the scriptures regarding prophecy, you will see how the above two scriptures are played out. It isn't a matter of God "looking into the future," but a matter of God's will being done. He organizes and "allows" things to occur. Some things HE does, and many things SATAN does, which God allows. God knows the hearts of all of us. He knows our free will, our stubborn natures, or rebellious attitudes and "knows" what will occur if HE DOESN'T INTERVENE IN ANY OF IT.

Psalm 139:23 "Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;"

Jeremiah 17:9-10 "The heart (mind of mankind) [is] deceitful above all [things,] And desperately wicked; Who can know it? :10 I, the LORD, search the heart, [I] test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings."

Daniel 2:21 "And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding."

POINT: God is clearly in control of all that takes place on this earth. Between how mankind acts without contact with God, and the influence of Satan, God can, using His own intervention where He wants, direct everything that takes place. If it weren't so, where would free will come in? Free will makes our individual future something God has to prove and test for OUR sakes, but He knows what can be done when someone submits to His leading and teaching. . .

Genesis 22:12 "And He said, Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for NOW I KNOW (emphasis mine) that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only [son,] from Me."

POINT: Throughout the Bible, you will see mentioned related concepts to the one above. God "tries" or tests the heart to see if the right character is there even under stress and trials. Of course He knows what we have in our minds better than WE do, but the point is He has to be SURE, and He has to be sure "WE" know what's there, and our lifetime is the "proving grounds" for this process.

So when you study the subject of prophecy, realize that it comes to pass only because it is ALLOWED to come to pass. God cannot and will not generally interfere with free will. If He did that, he would be defeating His whole purpose for mankind being flesh and blood in the first place. You can be sure that where something is prophesied, IT WILL OCCUR, and only because mankind WILL NOT agree to change it's collective way of thinking, because Satan won't change HIS way of thinking.

We bring punishment upon ourselves, and yet prophecy tells us that even after all that, we will STILL NOT CHANGE, and THEN God Himself will bring correction. The whole point is to allow mankind to do its own thing, TO THE END, in order to PROVE to all of us that OUR ways (Satan's ways) DO NOT BRING PEACE AND ARE NOT ADEQUATE FOR ETERNAL LIFE. Only when we have learned that lesson, will we become teachable and in the right frame of mind for God to mold and shape our thinking to HIS way of thinking.

What does God warn will occur on this earth?

Doomsday prophets have existed for as long as man has existed. "The end is near" they cry out or write on their placards. Where do they get this stuff, anyway? The Bible, yes, but do they have it right? Mostly NO.

If you have been following along in this website, you will have a much better understanding of WHY we are experiencing the problems we are in the world. With that understanding, we can lay out the scenario of what is classified as the "END TIME." The end time is just that, the time of the end of THIS AGE and experience for mankind.

What leads up to this ultimate confrontation is simply this: Mankind, influenced by Satan and the Demons, bring mankind and the world to the brink of total annihilation. However, this series of events is quite unlike what most of us have understood or been taught. There is purpose in EVERYTHING God does or allows to occur. He is in TOTAL control over it all, and even tells us that He will "cut it short" to prevent the actual end of all life on this planet.

Let's begin with the initial framework that we have laid, and realize that mankind is on the wrong path. This makes it quite easy for the events which will soon occur to sweep across the earth and encompass every human being alive. We need to understand that throughout the Bible, in all of God's dealings with mankind, He has laid out the simple choices. Either we obey, or we are punished.

In order to fully understand WHY the U.S. will be the FIRST to suffer correction, you need to educate yourself on the real biblical identity of America. You can download a FREE publication titled "The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy"!

The point here is that correction is DEFINITELY coming because we, as a nation, have rejected the truths of God. The very foundation upon which this nation was founded was based on the Bible and God's laws, His way of thinking.

The "blessings," another "religious" word that means the wealth, bounty, land. . . all we have received in this nation, was PROMISED to a group of people in the Bible because of obedience. However, along with this promise was also a WARNING that if we turned away from the very mind and power that gave us existence, that we would be punished in a very serious way.

All biblical punishment from God came in "waves." That is, He usually NEVER gave a total correction all at once. God would warn continuously, even for decades and centuries before He eventually allowed His "people" to experience punishment, and even then punishment was not always complete.

Any thinking person alive today in America, HAS to realize that something is seriously wrong with our country. Our power base, wealth and abundance is being slowly eaten away. The greatness of America is withering as we speak, and most people are ignoring the countless warnings we have had for many years. Our schools are in a shambles, our kids are in gangs and can't even read or write.

Our infrastructure is decaying, out debt to the world is the largest of any nation on earth. We have a powerful military, but we fear to use any of our strength to do what should be done. Drugs are a major problem, our families are broken. Moral standards have almost disappeared, and what was once strongly condemned by our citizens is now accepted as normal and natural.

The collective mind of America is slowly being perverted and corrupted, AND WE ARE ALLOWING IT TO OCCUR. What better proof of blindness is there? Many people are having a hard time making a living. We have a burdensome welfare system that is weakening our citizens and drawing in thousands of others from other nations.

America is going down the tubes and we are allowing it. We ignore the truth. We avoid the reality of what is happening, always making excuses, or finding reasons why things are they way they are. Blaming everyone and everything we can, so long as we don't have to face the truth and realize the problem is that WE HAVE TURNED OUR BACKS ON THE LIVING BEING WHICH SET ALL THIS IN MOTION. We are rebelling against His laws and His way of thinking.

We are allowing all this to occur, all the while justifying it, and believing that America could never fall. The very idea that our nation could go into CAPTIVITY, lose its abundance and freedom, and be reduced to a third world economic and military power, is beyond most people's willingness to even entertain. THAT is why it WILL HAPPEN.

Go over the scriptures that discuss our fate because of rebellion and disobedience in the old testament. Remember that most of the references to "Israel" in prophecy, is speaking directly about AMERICA AND THE OTHER WHITE, ENGLISH SPEAKING NATIONS OF THE WORLD. For further proof of this, see the references below.
