4 When using the Bible as our guide, we can have confidence in God’s plan ✶ God accomplishes His will ✶ Prophecies about the 1 st coming were fulfilled, Rom. 15:4 ✶ Prophecies about the 2 nd coming will be fulfilled, 2 Pt. 3:7-9

5

6 Prepared the world for Christ & kingdom, Acts 26:22, 23

7 Prepared the world for the spiritual nature of Christ’s kingdom ✶ Old Covenant on stone, 2 Cor. 3:7 ✶ New Covenant on heart, 2 Cor. 3:3; Jer. 31:31-34 ✶ Kingdom within, Lk. 17:20, 21

8 Old Testament prophets inspired of God, 2 Pt. 1:20, 21 ✶ Accurately foretold future events & people ✶ Prophecies about Christ ▴ Apply to either 1 st or 2 nd coming ▴ Not both ▴ What it applied to when first written, it applies to for all time

9 When inspired men interpret prophecy, it is an infallible interpretation, 1 Cor. 2:7-13 ✶ No man has a right to alter ✶ It cannot be applied to additional outcomes ✶ Ex. Jesus’ birth, Isa. 7:14; Mt. 1:18-23

10 Passages such as Malachi 3:1-6; Ezekiel 20:33-38; 37:11-28; Zechariah 13:8-9; Revelation 7:1-8, and many others, indicate clearly that when the Lord returns to earth there will be a believing remnant in Israel awaiting His return - J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come

11 Read Ezekiel 20:33-38 ✶ No mention of Christ ✶ No mention of the 2 nd coming ✶ Ezekiel dealing with Babylonian captivity & Jews return from it, Eze. 1:1; 24:2

12 Moses prophesied about the captivity Deut. 4:26, 27; 30:1-3; Neh. 1:8-10 ✶ No mention of Christ ✶ No mention of the 2 nd coming ✶ Ezekiel dealing with Babylonian captivity & Jews return from it, Eze. 1:1; 24:2

13 The remnant was in Ezra’s day, Deut. 7:2-4; Ezra 9:6-15

14 The large body of unfulfilled prophecy makes the second advent absolutely essential...[it is promised] that He shall rule all nations (Psa. 2:8-9) - J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come

15 Read Psalm 2:1-9 ✶ Peter on Psalm 2, Acts 4:24-28 ✶ Paul on Psalm 2, Acts 13:31-33

16 ’…literally restore the Davidic throne and Kingdom…that they were justified in so doing by the very language of the covenant. It was confirmed by oath (Ps. 132:11, and 89:3, 4, 33) - J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come

17 Jesus disagreed & rebuked His disciples for such a view, Lk. 24:25-27, 44

18 Psalm 132:11 is about the resurrection, not the return, Acts 2:29-32

19 It has been agreed that the time of the new covenant was future...Isaiah (55:3)...It must be viewed as yet future, for this covenant can not be realized by Israel until God has effected her salvation and restoration to the land” - J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come

20 This is a Theocracy in deed and truth... The Rulership is safely and powerfully lodged in one Person...who becomes, according to... ‘the sure mercies of David’ (Isa. 55:3, 4, …), ‘the Chief and Commander of nations’ - J. Dwight Pentecost, Things To Come

21 Paul applied Isaiah 55 to the 1 st advent, Acts 13:33-39
