Historic Interpretation of Bible Prophecy

5/. Historic Interpretation of Bible Prophecy.

Not every pastor’s cup of tea. It can be simply put, but not everyone wants to stay at ‘kindergarten’ level!! Starting with the basic promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, through to the promises to King David – there is heaps here. I find every time I preach on the BI, lots of very keen saints ‘weep’ over the fact that it is hardly every covered! Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; 12 Tribes [later 10 Tribes and 2 Tribes], Esau and Jacob; Ephraim and Manasseh; The Throne of David, Jeremiah and the Stone of Destiny, etc. As I said, this is not everyone’s cup of tea and I am sure there are bits and pieces of it that we ‘question’ each other about – but it is the basic ‘Historic’ belief that is important.
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. [Read: Judah’s Sceptre and Joseph’s Birthright by the Rev J. H. Allen. Either buy it as a book ($50+ @ Amazon?) or online – www.cbcg.org/franklin/Judah_Sceptre_Josephs_Birthright.pdf ]
Genesis 12:1-5, 13:14-16, 15:4-6, 16:8-12, [The Arabs “…he will be a wild [Heb: running wild] man…”], 17:1-8, 17:15- 21, 18:14-18, 21:9-13, 22:15-18, 24:59-60, 25:5 and 21-26, 26:3-5 and 24, 28:10-22, 31:13, 32:28, 35:11-18, 49:1-33, Numbers chapters 23 and 24, Deut 28:48- 68 and 33:10-29, Jer. 31:10, 20 and 21, 1 Peter 1:1 (‘…strangers scattered…’ Israelites north of Palestine) & James 1:1.
Esau and Jacob. Genesis chapters 25 and 27 for starters. Romans 9:13, Hebrews 11:20 and 12:16. [‘…hated…’? – Hebrew: “…to detest (especially to persecute); by extension, to love less…”); – hate, hate(-ful)…”] Hate is such a strong word in our modern language – in the light of what Esau did by denying his birthright, it is easy to understand God ‘detesting’ and ‘loving less’ Esau than Jacob]. Research modern nations, but avoid extreme ‘World Order, The Illuminati, Protocols of Zion, etc [USA/Manasseh becomes the ‘Big Satan’ and the President of the USA has horns growing out of his head! It is the USA [along with the British Commonwealth] that fights against oppression and has become the ‘policemen’ for liberty and freedom – clinched victory for the free world in the 2 Great Wars] – there could be some truths in these ‘conspiracy theories,’ but GOD RULES THE NATIONS AND HE ONLY SETS UP AND PULLS DOWN – ALLOWS AND DISALLOWES!!
Ephraim [Britain] and Manasseh [USA]. Genesis 48:8-22, Deut. 33:13-17, Read the Book of Hosea – Ephraim here represents all the 10 tribes, while Judah represents the other 2. Ezekiel 37:15-22.
Throne of David. Zarah and Pharez Genesis chapter 38, Genesis 49:8-12, 1 Samuel 16:1-13 and 23, {David and Goliath Chapter 17}, 1 Samuel 25:28, 2 Samuel 7:12-28 and 24-29, 23:5, 1 Kings 1:34, 39 and 2:45, 2 Kings 11:11-13, Psalms chapter 89 and 92:10, 1 Chron 16:13-17, 28:4 and 7, 17:9-27, 2 Chron 6:16. 3 overturns – Ezekiel 17:22-24 and 21:21-27. Kings Daughters – Jeremiah 41:10, 43:6, Ps 45:9-17.
The above scriptures on these subjects are far from exhausted –
