The prophets and prophecies are sometimes relegated to that dusty dingy place in the attic of our Biblical library. Yes, we say they are important, but we will just keep them stored for future use. Some of the prophets have even been labeled “minor” prophets because they did not write as much as others! But the prophets are important! They are crucial!
As we read the words of the prophets and we look back in hindsight, we exclaim, “They should have known!” Hindsight is always 20/20. That is to say, it is easier to see the truth when we are looking from the future to the past.
The old, musty, truths of the prophets tell us much. God knew that the people of this earth were in need of a savior. He prepared for that. He was planning to send the savior. He told the world of the coming of Jesus through His prophets. He told them He would save the world. He would be the light!
• What do you think of when you think of the prophets?
• Why do you think they did not figure out Who Jesus was?
Lord, Thank you for sending your prophets to tell people about the coming Savior. Thank you for being true to your Word! Amen.
