We look into the past and call it history. God looks into the future and calls it history because He’s timeless, the Eternal I AM. He inhabits eternity. The only difference from God’s point of view between the future and the past is that in the human experience it just hasn’t happened yet.”

“That’s why we don’t believe that Jesus came as He did, conceived by the Holy Ghost, born in Bethlehem because the Bible says He did. Nor that He lived that sinless life because the Bible said He did.  Nor that He went to the cross because the Bible says He did. Nor even that He rose again from the dead because the Bible said He did. Nor that He ascended from the Mount of Olives back to be with His Father in Heaven glorified forever because the Bible said He did. Nor even that He’d come as His other Person as the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost to share His Life with His redeemed people because the Bible said He did. We’ve got better grounds for believing it.

We don’t believe all these things because the Bible says He did. We believe them because the Bible said He would. ‘I’ve come to do Your will oh God. All the things that are written of Me in the volume of the Book.’ That’s the Old Testament, the only Bible that was available for years to the early church. You and I have a bonus. It’s called the New Testament and the New Testament simply says the Lord Jesus did what the Bible [Old Testament] said He would.”  ~Major Ian Thomas

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:19-21
