There was a time when nobody knew the Gospel of Christ. It had not yet been revealed to us. It was a mystery all throughout the Old Testament eras. The culminating act of God to bring salvation to all who would believe and follow Jesus – was the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. The truths of God never change, for our God is unchanging. But just as the mystery of salvation was finally revealed, God is revealing, little by little, the mysteries of His prophetic words spoken by His prophets of old. Our understanding of “prophecy” – is ever increasing. God is releasing prophecies of old into realities of today. They are popping fast!
Jesus came to die for us (John 3:16-21). But He was also a prophet. Jesus predicted the destruction of Jerusalem (which did happen in 70 AD). He also speaks of the end times of the earth.
