The Bible has very important things to say about our future. It has been estimated that nearly 25% of the Bible was prophetic in nature at the time that the passages actually were written. The Bible contains extensive predictions or prophecies of future events – including events happening in our time – and it also contains information related to the process of making those predictions and why they were put there in the first place. This section is dedicated to revealing the principles of prophecy from God’s perspective, and these principles might be quite different from the impressions of most people based upon popular Church teachings. In fact, the true principles of Biblical prophecy are rarely taught; however, if people took the time to learn these basic truths, then most of the misunderstandings, misconceptions, or misinterpretations concerning future events and the Return of Christ would disappear and the reality of the end times would be revealed. Too many people that preach or teach about prophecy and the last days have made interpretations of prophetic passages in the Bible that have turned out to be inconsistent with other passages or just plain wrong. Some of these misinterpretations have included the injection of personal predictions alongside of Biblical prophecies, which often have led to fantastic fantasies not supported by the Word of God. For instance, literally hundreds of people have made predictions concerning the date of the Lord’s return and when those dates have come and gone without Christ’s appearing, we are all made to look foolish. If people would only take the time to learn the basic principles of Bible prophecy, then it would be very difficult to be deceived by false prophecies or incorrect interpretations. These fundamental principles will guide us in understanding what is happening in our world and what will soon occur as we live in these last days and await the Coming of Christ.
