Learn How to Understand Bible Prophecy

Christians today, generally, don’t study Bible prophecy due to the scores of prophetic symbols included therein. Bible prophecy, however, is there because we have to understand it; otherwise, God would have let it be excluded from the Bible. The inclusion of Bible prophecy is not to cause confusion, but as a REVELATION! This is what the Book of Revelation confirms from the start. It reveals “Jesus Christ”. Thus, since Bible prophecy is to reveal, God did not write it in a manner that none of us could grasp its meaning.

Neither should one come up with his/her personal interpretation of Bible prophecy which 2 Peter 1:20 confirms, “no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation”. How then are we supposed to interpret the prophecies found in the Bible? What would be the best way for understanding what all of the prophetic symbols reveal? Actually, the Bible interprets itself, and so when we stumble upon a word which meaning is vague, then we search elsewhere within the Bible for that certain word to find out what it stands for.

Here is an example. There are two beasts in Revelation 2. One rises up under the sea, the other one emerges up out of the ground. If we simply read such chapter alone, then it is going to be quite difficult, almost impossible to comprehend what it is trying to tell. If we, however, stick to the rule of the turning to the Bible itself for the meaning of this, then we will be able to discover something related to this. Thus, we have to discover how to interpret “beast” according to the Bible prophecy. Turning to Daniel 7, we discover a verse saying, “The fourth beast will be the fourth kingdom of the earth”. And so it is revealed to us. A beast signifies some kingdom or nation on earth. Thus, we already know that by the two beasts, Revelation 13 is telling us a Bible prophecy concerning two nations here on earth.

We likewise have to make use of logic when it come to interpreting the Bible, so if we consider the second beast, according to Revelation 13 it comes up from out of the earth, in place of the sea. Thus, if by “sea” it means a place with numerous people, nations as well as tongue, such as Europe, applying logic we have to assume that by “earth” it means the contrary and refers to a nation which arose from a wasteland, uninhabited area, similar to what America did.

Therefore, when you look for the meaning in the Bible itself, prophecy starts opening up and uncovering great things for us. However, we must at all times learn about these things in a humble prayerful way and request God to make us understand, keeping in mind that He is the supreme cause of wisdom.
