prophecy-short study


Who wants to know the future?   Does God know the future?  Does Satan know the future?Review the Garden of Eden story.

What did God say would happen to Adam and Eve if they ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil?  Did that happen like God said?  Read Genesis 3:14-15.  God prophesied to Satan in the serpent that God would one day destroy Satan, but Satan will hurt God before being destroyed.

Before God does something big he always tells it to a prophet (Amos 3:7).  A prophet gives God’s words to everyone.  Who was the prophet who talked about a great flood to come?  Who was the greatest prophet (after Jesus himself) (Matthew 11:11)

Read Matthew 24:3-44.  Hilite verses 4,5,11,23-27.

Are all prophets from God?  How can we tell if a prophet is from God or not?  Everything the prophet says must come true, and what he speaks must agree with the Bible (Isaiah 8:20, Deut.18:22). 

All fortune tellers and palm readers and horoscopes etc. are from Satan.  Satan can guess the future very well, and make you believe he is a true prophet, but he is not.  Never pay money to someone to “know your future”.

Jesus and Satan are having a big battle.  Who will win? (Rev. 20:7-10).  God has prophesied this to comfort and cheer us.  It will happen.  Each of us can choose to live forever with Jesus in heaven, or to be on Satan’s side and die forever.
