A Train Of Prophecies
What can we compare the prophecies of the bible to? The bible is made up of many prophecies, which contain all the information about the spiritual route to the kingdom of heaven. It starts from the beginning, the Book of Genesis, and runs all the way to the end, to the Book of Revelation.
If we follow all the courses right as it is foretold in the bible, we can reach our destination, the kingdom of heaven. In this sense, we can compare the bible to a train running for a destination. A train which starts from Seoul to Busan has its own route to follow and a set time for each stop. It follows the exact schedule of its own. If it deviates from the appointed rail and follows a different direction, it cannot reach the destination. Even it can face a big trouble on its way.
Prophecies of the Bible
It is the same with the prophecies of the bible. The prophecies of the bible are like routes for the spiritual train to the kingdom of heaven. It has its own appointed places for stops and appointed times. Unlike the train schedule which can be changed to suit the conveniences, however, the schedules for this train of prophecies cannot be changed in any way.
God has set the time and destination and nobody can make any compromises to the plan of God.
Isa 46:10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ 11 From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.
God has made a plan for the end even from the beginning and everything has been being accomplished as God planned at the beginning. And everything that remains will be done according to the plan of God. Nobody can change the course and schedule predetermined by God Almighty.
Get On Board to A Running Train
If this is the case, what should we do if we want to ride on a train to Busan? Can we change the rail course to make a station in my front yard? No, we must go to a nearest station and get a ticket to Busan. Since the train would not come to us, we must move onto the train and board on it.
It is the same with the train of prophecies. We cannot change the plan of God to suit our schedule. Therefore, what we can do is to run toward the train of prophecies and get on board the train. We have to catch up the train since the train will not change its course to give ride to us. Sorry, but this is the reality.
Therefore, rather than making complaints about the train schedule, we have to make changes on our schedule to catch the train. If not, we might miss the train and regret for not having made the necessary changes on our schedules. The train of the prophecies is now running toward the end, the final destination of the kingdom of heaven without stopping.
Now is the time to jump on to the train before it is too late.
