THEY KNEW IT NOT

Before daylight on Sunday morning, after Jesus’ resurrection the evening before, Mary Magdalene found His tomb open and rushed to the twelve apostles, thinking the authorities had moved Jesus’ body.  So Peter and John ran together to see, and Peter ran in and found His linen clothes lying and His head covering wrapped separately nearby, then John went in and saw, and believed.  “For as yet they knew not the scripture, that He must raise again from the dead” (John 20:1-10).  Amazing!  The two of Jesus’ disciples who were closest to Him did not know that it was prophesied that He was to be raised from the dead. 

Today, 2,000 years later, we are in a reverse situation.  Jesus is coming back soon and His coming will fulfill a large volume of prophecy.  Yet, very few of Jesus’ followers are aware that they need to know of the prophecies of His coming.  Somehow we have gotten the idea that it is not important.  But, why else would Jesus tell us that “All the prophets and the law prophesied until John” (Matt. 11:13)?

Amazing!  But God is even now raising up a group of apostles and prophets to enlighten us about His coming.  As Paul said, “By revelation He {God} made known unto me the mystery which in other other ages was not known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto His holy apostles and prophet by the spirit” (Eph. 3:1-5). 

Jesus will come very soon and many believers will not be able to believe He is here when they  hear about it, because faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Rom. 10:8-18).  Apostles and prophets are already here, and Jesus will soon appear.  Believe it.
