Learn How to Understand Bible Prophecy Many Christians nowadays are not keen to learn Bible prophecy because of the so many prophetic symbols it contains. 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! Exactly as the opening in the book of Revelation affirms. It reveals “Jesus Christ”. Therefore because Bible prophecy is a revelation, then surely God has written it in a manner that everyone is able to understand. Bible prophecy is also not open to individual interpretation because the Bible says, specifically in 2 Peter 1:20, that no prophecy comes from someone’s own interpretation. How are the prophecies contained in the Bible to be interpreted then? What is supposed to be the perfect way to interpret the meaning of all such prophetic symbols? Now then, we make use of the Bible to reveal itself, and by this it means that when we come upon a certain word that does not seem to make sense then we search for that word elsewhere inside the Bible to discover its meaning. Let us illustrate this using an example. Revelation 13 tells of 2 beasts. One that surfaces from the sea, and the other that comes up from under the earth. 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. On the other hand, if we let the Bible reveal itself, then we can come across some interpretation of this. Thus, we have to discover how to interpret “beast” according to the Bible prophecy. If we read Daniel 7, we uncover a verse which says, ‘The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom upon the earth”. And lo, there it is! The Bible prophecy of a beast refers to a kingdom or a nation of this world. Therefore, now we recognize that the two beasts that Revelation 13 talks about represent two nations.

Now, logic is also used in interpreting the Bible, and looking at Revelation 13’s second beast, we will realize that it emerges from the earth, instead of the sea. Therefore if “sea” signifies a region of many population, nations and languages, similar to Europe, the use of logic will lead us to deduce that by “earth” it means the opposite, which is a nation that emerged out of a wilderness, an area that was not populated, which resembles how America came about.

Now you see that using the Bible for its own interpretation will open up the prophecy and reveal great things to us. Yet, we have to always remember that it is God who ultimately provides wisdom and we need to always stay humble and prayerful in studying and asking God that such things be revealed to us.
