They Figured It Out


Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.—1 Peter 1:10-11

I know I feel a need to figure out what's happening in our world, but words like this cause me to reconsider. You see, there were greater men than even me, that God elected in times long past to prophesy. And these prophets were men who inquired carefully. They were not quick and hasty but listened carefully to the Word of the Lord and predicted the suffering of Christ. And it's his suffering that's more important than our suffering, in that his suffering results in glory and subsequent glories that ends all suffering. So while you may be tempted to interpret the signs of these times, remember that it's been done. And the glory we seek has already be realized. The question is, do you believe it, and do you receive it?

ASK THIS: Do you believe and receive the prophets of old and what they told us about the suffering and salvation of Jesus Christ?

DO THIS: Believe and receive salvation from eternal suffering—in Jesus's name.

PRAY THIS: God, I need you to rescue me from suffering. I believe your suffering was for me so that I would not have to suffer in eternity. I give my life and concerns to you.
