Is it the End of the World?


So Many to Choose From!

The Bible is filled with lots and lots of marvelous prophecies. It is almost a shame that we focus mostly on a few of them (the rise of the antichrist in the last days, etc.).

One of my favorites is found in Jeremiah 29:13:

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

The occasion of this prophecy—which is deeply personal for each of us—was a letter from the prophet Jeremiah, to the Jewish captives in Babylon. They had been conquered and driven from their land, but God was reminding them through Jeremiah that not only had He not forgotten them, but He told them specifically that after they had been exiled for 70 years, He would suddenly return them to the land of their forefathers; this prediction occurs in verse 10.

But tucked into this grand promise is the one in verse 13. You see, no matter who you are or where you live, the Lord of History is accessible. He was telling the Hebrews that eventually they would seek Him and find Him, yet the promise is applicable for individuals too, in all times and places.

Perhaps you are from another faith tradition, or no faith at all. In this age of global communication, perhaps this will be read by a Sikh, a Muslim, an atheist.

We bluster at each other, sometimes, and declare that the other is dangerous, or simply misguided.

I am simply saying to you, though, that through the astonishing fulfillment of Bible prophecy, you can find the One you long to find.

There are almost countless remarkable prophecies in the Bible, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But it would be easy to put Jeremiah 29:13 near the top, don’t you think? It is a promise, a prophecy, from God Himself that you can claim for yourself.

How about it? Are you looking for faith in many places? Do you have questions about the Bible and its prophecies? If so, let me know. I’m very discreet. God is even more discreet. With Him you can share the secrets of your heart, and find Him.
