Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
The bible has many unfulfilled prophetic promises. These promises are important to us, so we tend to see ourselves as the focus of this future. But this is not our future, it is God's future. The cliche “just along for the ride” is our prophetic reality. In the Bible God has opened the inscrutable door of His future, and let us stand at the threshold and gaze hazily into the beyond.
These prophecies are sure, because they are part of the transcendent Creator's revelation about Himself. We sometimes forget that God will be in tomorrow as much as He is in today. In fact, today God is the only one in tomorrow.
The pillars of Christian doctrine stand on the foundation of God's prophetic promises. Without prophecy there is no Christianity. The death and resurrection of Jesus solidly link gospel believers to the future when we shall rise from the dead as He rose from the dead! The second coming, the new earth, the rapture, all are yet in God's future.
This is not crystal ball fortune-telling. The reality of this future is based on the power of God to do what He said He would do each day leading up to the fulfillment of the promises. Think with me for a moment: Even if God didn't know the future (an impossibility), couldn't the all-powerful God work each day to accomplish the future He has promised? Who will keep Him from accomplishing His designs? Isaiah 46:5-11 Our future is God’s future. He has promised--He will now do it! I can't wait...
