Prophecy is Wonderful yet Scary

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

“So my word that goes forth from my mouth will prove to be. It will not return to me without results, but it will certainly do that in which I have delighted, and it will have certain success in that for which I have sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)

If Yahweh says something will happen, it will happen. This is why Prophecy is so wonderful and yet also scary.

Prophecy is wonderful because when Yahweh says it is going to happen, it is going to happen. This helps us strengthen our faith in Yahweh. This helps us to put our trust and belief in Him. It is so wonderful to see something prophesied years or centuries earlier come true.

But prophecy is also scary because once it is written, it will be so.  For example, we know that in the end times the great and fear inspiring day of Yahweh is coming (Revelation 16:14).  This is going to be a wonderful, yet scary day. We know that in the end times people will not be able to buy or sell without having the “Mark of the Beast” on their hands or heads (Revelation 13).  And if you have the “Mark of the Beast” then you will not make it into the Kingdom of God. So how will those who love Yahweh buy and sell food?

We who love and honor Yahweh can trust that He will provide for our safety. Nonetheless, we know through prophecy that we will see some exceptionally wonderful and scary events in the years to come.
