Prophecy

1 Corinthians 14

This chapter concludes the subject of spiritual gifts. As to Spiritual Gifts:

- Prophecy is shown to be greater or superior to that of tongues (1 Cor. 14:1-25).

- There are certain regulations governing the exercise of each (1 Cor. 14:26-33).

- Women members of the assembly are to refrain from speaking at its gatherings (1 Cor. 14:34-36).

- The instructions given are the commandment of the Lord (1 Cor. 14:37-39).

- The exercise of spiritual gifts is to be decent and in order (1 Cor. 14:40).

Chapter 12 describes the gifts and the Body. Chapter 13 describes the love that alone gives the use of gifts any value. And chapter 14 regulates the ministry of gifts in the primitive, apostolic assembly of believers.

 

Jonah, Lesson 1

Read Jonah 1:1-11

Introduction

No book of the Bible has been subjected to more scorn and ridicule by skeptics and infidels than the book of Jonah. There may be one exception, that being the first three chapters of Genesis. Despite the criticism of men, the Lord vouches for its genuineness. Matthew 12:40 says, “For as Jonah was three days…” etc. The Lord used the experience of Jonah as a type of His own death and resurrection and in doing so lifted the book above the realm of fiction, allegory, or fable.

The Times of the Gentiles

Luke 21-24, Daniel 2:31-42, Daniel 7:1-8 and Daniel 7:15-23

Israel's Place in History

The Vision of the Valley of Dry Bones (Ezekiel 37:1-10)

[Describe this] This prophecy was given over 2,500 years ago, and it is being fulfilled in our generation. This prophecy declares that in “the end times” the whole nation (the twelve tribes) will be gathered from the nations of the world.

The Scattering of the Nation  

Leviticus 26:33 - “And I will scatter you among the nations, and will draw out a sword after you; and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.”

Leviticus 26:38 - “And ye shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.”  

Daniel's Seventy Weeks

Read Daniel 9:20-27

Introduction

The chronology of Israel’s future is outlined in this prophecy. It is also another instance of the truth and accuracy of the Scriptures. “Heaven and earth shall pass away,” “Thy Word is truth.” As the great image of Nebuchadnezzar and the vision of Daniel’s beasts foretold the history of the Gentile world, so Daniel’s prophecy of the seventy weeks foretells the history of the Jewish people. The entire prophecy has to do with Daniel’s people and their holy city—Jerusalem.
