Luke

INTRODUCTION

The Gospels of Jesus Christ are the four books in the Bible which provide an intimate account of the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior.  Christians accept the Gospels as plain truth and they are.

But in the providence of God there is another purpose for those very same four gospel accounts.  They are also written as prophetic of things to come.  That we might know by the proof of prophetic fulfillment that the words in the gospels did not originate in men, but were as God-breathed as the Torah of Moses.

THE LIGHT & THE DARKNESS

“The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5)

What happens when we sit and read the Word of God? The light shines and the dirt shows up. We feel conviction of sin.  This is a truth on a personal level. What about on a global level?

What if the words in the Bible reveal darkness on earth – prophetically?

Can the “Light’ – the Word of God – show the “Darkness” – evil works afoot in the world?   Just as the Word of God shows up sin in our heart?  It can.  This is foolproof evidence the Bible is the Word of God.

HOW TO READ PROPHECY

A single verse, or passage, or chapter, or book can have more than one prophetic fulfillment.

For the purpose of our study we read prophecy on a one verse, one year basis.  We have already shown when we read the Prophets, and take Isaiah 1 v 1 as 1 AD we follow modern history with astounding accuracy. (See Isaiah).  Following Isaiah, modern history continues verse by verse in Jeremiah.  (See Jeremiah).  Right up to our present day: prophetically, 2015 is Jeremiah 30 v 2, 2016 is Jeremiah 30 v 3.

THE GOSPELS

The Gospels are the accounts of the life of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, the sinless perfect One who made the Universe.  He showed his love for the Father by setting aside his majesty in glory, incarnating as a child, presenting Himself to Israel then dying on a Cross.  Because death could not hold Him, He was raised from the dead and sits once again at the right hand of the Father in Glory.

Jesus said this:

“…false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect..SEE I HAVE TOLD YOU AHEAD OF TIME” (Matt. 24:24-25)

The gospels contain the history of Jesus Christ…  The Light of the World… and the Light shows the Darkness… ahead of time… So… the Gospels show the False Christs and False Prophets… ahead of time…

This ought not to surprise us.  It was written clearly for us to understand.  Scripture says:

“the testimony of Jesus” (the Gospels) “is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10)

We give you examples of some of the most notorious men ever to live.  Their story is found prophetically right in the Gospels.  All this blackest evil is found in the accounts of the purest good, Jesus Christ.

A-mazing!

EXAMPLES

You will be shocked by the accuracy of the prophecies:

False Messiah: Adolf Hitler (Luke 3:20 – 4:38)
