One of my favorite things to do is study Bible prophecy. A fascinating outcome of that is observing that so many people in our world today miss the fact that prophecies are being fulfilled at an astonishing rate.
While I enjoy studying “eschatology,” I also love to read about origins issues. I am not a scientist, but rather my area of interest is researching the recent history of thought on evolution and creation.
I was privileged to know the late Dr. Henry Morris of the Institute for Creation Research. Through him, I began to investigate how Darwinian philosophy has affected the Church and the wider culture.
An outcome of the spread of the philosophy of naturalism is that people also miss the reality of the Bible’s predictive prophecy.
In other words, a couple generations were taught that the Bible’s accounts of origins in Genesis 1-11 were not true. From there, it was a short step to disbelief in the rest of the Old Testament, or the Hebrew Scriptures. Now we are widely told that the Exodus didn’t happen, Abraham wasn’t real, David is myth, etc.
That is precisely why so many people in our world today do not “see” reality.
I am actually quite comfortable saying that I believe the early chapters of Genesis are a straightforward account of early Earth history. Logically, I also take seriously the predictions for the future, from the prophets.
I see through these studies that the Bible validates itself.
So at the end of the day, I am able to understand that the anti-Bible bias of men like Charles Lyell and Thomas Huxley was simply wrong.
Not only were they wrong about origins, but they were certainly, tragically, wrong about last days theology.
That is why so many people in our world today miss the significance of the prophecies concerning the Jews’ final “re-entry” into history.
I encourage you to simply read the Old Testament for yourself. Take as long as you need. Take notes. Then meditate on current events and recent history.
You’ll arrive at the truth.
