The commentary below is not a transcript of the radio broadcast
God always has a plan, and in his word he promises he will always reveal his plans to his people (Isaiah 48:3-5, Amos 3:7, John 16:13).
God’s plan to redeem mankind was predicted in the Bible. It is revealed clearly in the seven Feasts of the Lord found in the Law of Moses: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Tabernacles.
Understanding that these feasts are prophetic in nature and represent seven significant historical and future events is vital to having a good understanding of God’s plan of redemption.
Because his plan of redemption had its beginning before the foundation of the earth and extends throughout history to finally be completed in the New Heavens and the New Earth, any study of God’s redemptive plan is a study of Biblical Prophecy, (1 Peter 1:18-20, Isaiah 65:17, 66:22).
Scripture reveals God’s plan to redeem not only our souls, but also our bodies and the earth that was cursed because of Adam’s sin (1 Peter 1:9-11, Romans 8:23, Revelation Chapters 21-22).
When Will Knowing The Future Not Help Us? There is no gain in studying Bible Prophecy just for prophecy’s sake. All Bible Prophecy revolves around the person and work of Jesus Christ, and knowing what the future holds will not help us unless we know the One who holds it (John 17:3, Hebrews 10:7, 1 Peter 1:10-11, Revelation 19:10).
When we understand God’s great Redemption, Biblical Prophecy is no longer complicated or mysterious. Any study of Bible Prophecy… is a study of Redemption!
