is a prediction
so sometime in the future it becomes history and history is the only way a prophecy can be fulfilled and verified
so let’s take a look at history
- a warning
- a call for repentance
- a message of hope and good news
the above does not require a perfect understanding of future historic events but somehow we are assured that the good guys win in the end – we are urged to listen and watch – be prepared – we are known by our works – blessed is he that readeth –
please note that in the area of the seven churches christianity has virtually disappeared – were they warned?
