What Is the Significance of End Times Prophecies? End Times prophecy is significant because it helps us know about the future of the world and our eternal dwelling place if we reject or trust in Christ. Also, studying prophecy supports the validity of the Bible and can impact how we live.

Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.

‘Time of the End’:

Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’(NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.

(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)

4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)

8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)

9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)

10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)

11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)

Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’

One of the areas of theology that has caused extensive debates and division is the discussion of End Times prophecy in eschatology. Many Christians avoid studying this area of theology because it is difficult to understand at times and there are various interpretations, such as premillennial, amillennial, and postmillennial interpretations of eschatology.

Because of the challenges and heated debates surrounding End Times prophecies, some believers avoid learning more about the sections of the Old and New Testaments that include vital information about the future.

While believers should avoid hurtful or divisive discussions, they should not evade passages of Scripture that cover areas of eschatology.

If we believe that “all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,” then we should not neglect sections of prophecy, such as the ones found in Daniel, Matthew, or Revelation (2 Timothy 3:16).

End Times prophecies are significant because God has given us this information as part of His inspired Word for a reason.

1. Provides Information about the Future

First, prophecy is important because it informs us about the future events of the world. From Genesis to Revelation, God has been working out His great plan of salvation for His glory.

Even though humans brought death and sin into the Lord’s perfect world, He provided a solution through His death and resurrection. In the future, Christ will return to set up His kingdom and make all things right.

Before Jesus’ return, the earth will experience a time of trouble that will affect people (Daniel 12:1). Many catastrophic events are described in the Book of Revelation.

Although believers hold to different interpretations and timelines of the events in Revelation, we all can agree that those times will greatly affect life on earth.

For lots of Christians, this future, unprecedented time of trouble is known as the Tribulation, which will last seven years (Daniel 9:27Matthew 24:21). God will pour out His wrath on the earth and work to bring Israel back to Himself.

We know that this world and everything in it will pass away (Matthew 24:351 John 2:17). God will create a New Heaven and New Earth where there will be no death, sorrow, or pain (Revelation 21:1-4).

Knowing that the earth will experience redemption and that death and suffering will end is comforting and encouraging.

Evil and sin may seem victorious in the world today, but the Bible declares that God’s purpose will prevail. He will make all things new and cast away evil.

2. Encourages Believers to Live Fully for God

Since we know that the world will soon pass away, we should live differently. Peter addressed this in his second epistle when he wrote, “Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives” (2 Peter 3:11).

He had just described the destruction of the elements and how the earth will be laid bare on the Day of the Lord (2 Peter 3:10).

Also, he reminds believers of their future home in the New Heaven and New Earth (2 Peter 3:13). We study End Times prophecies to know about the future and to live differently because of our knowledge.

Instead of living like the rest of the world, we should live for Christ and make the most of our time (Ephesians 5:15-16).

Jesus has promised to return soon, and we should be ready (Luke 12:42-46). Our perspectives change when we stop focusing only on the present and consider eternity.

When we remember Christ’s return and our future with Him, we can better evaluate our priorities.

End Times prophecies are significant because they urge us toward living more fully for the Lord and making the most of our time.

3. Answers and Questions about the Afterlife

In addition to giving information about the future, prophecies also answer questions about the afterlife. We know from the Bible that people either go to heaven or hell when they die based on their belief in Jesus.

Many people commonly think of heaven or hell as the final destination, but Scripture informs us that there will be a future resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous (Daniel 12:2-3John 5:28-29).

At the resurrection of the “righteous,” which refers to those who have trusted in Jesus for salvation, Christians will be raised to everlasting life. At that time, believers will receive glorified, imperishable bodies (1 Corinthians 15:42-44,53-54).

They will have no part in the “second death” (Revelation 20:6). Instead, they will dwell with their Savior and Lord for all eternity (Revelation 21:1-7).

In contrast, those who do not trust in Jesus will be resurrected at the end of time for the Great White Throne Judgment (Revelation 20:11-13).

Although they will receive bodies that will last forever, unbelievers will face the dreaded “second death” of being cast into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:14).

As Scripture teaches, “Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:15). Thus, the future dwelling of the lost is in the Lake of Fire since hell is only an intermediate place that will also be cast into the burning lake.

Studying the final dwelling places mentioned in Scripture is important because we learn that there are consequences for what we believe about the Lord Jesus.

Many people believe they can receive eternal life based on their deeds, but the Bible teaches that only those who trust in Jesus will live with Him in eternity (John 3:16Revelation 21:27).

Believers can earnestly look forward to their future home, rejoicing in God’s salvation (2 Peter 3:13). They can also allow their knowledge of the future of the lost to motivate them to share the good news of Jesus’ loving sacrifice and resurrection with others.

4. Demonstrates the Reliability of God’s Word

Prophecy is found throughout Scripture. The Bible includes both already fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled prophecies. For instance, the prophecy about Judah’s captivity in Babylon has already been completed (Jeremiah 29:4-14Daniel 9:1-19).

Jesus also fulfilled prophecy at His first coming as the promised Messiah, sent to die for our sins and raised from the dead (Luke 9:22; 24:44).

However, there are prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled in the future. Some of these include the restoration of Israel (Jeremiah 24:7Ezekiel 36:24-32Zechariah 8:8), Jesus’ second coming (Acts 1:11Revelation 19:11-16), and the establishment of His kingdom (Revelation 20:6). Isaiah, Daniel, and Revelation are other examples of Scripture that includes prophecy.

End Times prophecy is important because it lends support to the validity of the Bible. Scripture presents itself as the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:162 Peter 3:16). As Jesus said when He was praying to the Father, “your word is truth” (John 17:17).

If the prophecies in the Bible did not come true, then God’s Word would not be true either. Scripture would thus be unreliable.

Since we know that certain prophecies have already happened, then we can trust that the Lord will keep His Word. An unchangeable part of God’s character is that He is true and honest.

He cannot lie (Numbers 23:19Hebrews 6:18). Every promise and prophecy spoken by the Lord will be fulfilled. We know that He has kept all His promises and will not forsake the ones that are yet to happen.

Why Does This Matter?

End Times prophecy is significant because it helps us know about the future of the world and our eternal dwelling place if we reject or trust in Christ. Also, studying prophecy supports the validity of the Bible and can impact how we live.

If we genuinely believe that Jesus is coming soon and that this world is passing away, then our lives should be much more focused on serving God and helping others know Him.

Since God has given us prophecy in His Word, we are wise to study eschatology and consider how it can impact our everyday lives.

8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028/29) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028/29-3028/29).

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
