The End of the Beginning
This book has one simple goal: to analyze every yet-to-be fulfilled prophecy in the entire Bible—determining the order in which they’ll be fulfilled, as far as possible. This information is of critical importance to everyone alive today, for the culmination of all things is on our very doorstep—and I can prove it.
Although the goal is simple, the task was not. Exploring Scripture’s description of coming events is like working a 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Every piece must be put into its proper place if we want the overall picture to make any sense; and we can’t repaint the pieces or trim them to fit our own preconceived plan if we want to comprehend God’s picture. Yahweh told us about our future for two reasons. First, prophecy demonstrates His deity, since only One who exists outside of time can know the future. And second, He loves us He wants us to know what He has planned for us, both the good (if we trust His love) and the bad (if we reject it).
A great deal of the Bible was prophetic when it was written, whether overtly or between the lines—the sweeping symbols that define our destiny. Some has been literally fulfilled already, some has only partially come to pass, and some has not seen the light of day—yet. This book is concerned with these latter categories—prophecy that has yet to be fulfilled. Previously completed Biblical prophecy is still important, however. It will guide us in determining what God meant to communicate when He told us about our future. And He told us a lot—the what, the who, the where, the why, and even the when of events that will change our world forever, not just “someday,” but within the natural lifespan of most everyone reading these words. It’s time to wake up, world!
Biblical prophecy needn’t be a mystery, and you don’t need to be a scholar—or a genius—to understand and appreciate what Yahweh is about to accomplish. All that’s required is a willingness to take God at His Word. The truth isn’t hidden, but the sheer volume of prophetic scripture can be daunting. And because we’re so close to the end, the many geopolitical and technological realities that shed light on the end of days are becoming easier to identify as well. Taken as a whole, God’s Word is crystal clear about what He has planned for our future. As Psalm 102:18 says, “This will be written for the last generation, that a people yet to be created may praise Yahweh.” That’s exciting: the psalmist was talking about us!
