Information Related to "Key Events in History: Were They Linked to Bible Prophecy?"
We've all taken history classes in school. Many of us didn't find them all that interesting. I know that was the case with me. I mostly recall having to memorize a lot of ancient dates and remote places that seemed to have little importance today.
But at a certain point in my life history suddenly became fascinating to me.
It was when I came to understand how history relates to the prophecies of the Bible. A whole new world opened up to me. It was enthralling! I now saw many historical events as valuable evidence that the Bible was truly inspired by God. And I realized that prophecy provides a framework for history, covering the past, present and even the future!
Of course, not all of history directly relates to Bible prophecy, but you would be surprised to find out how much of it truly does. As I discovered, much of history is simply the result of the best and worst of human nature played out in world events within the framework of biblical prophecy.
The great what ifs of history
What happens when history and prophecy converge? You can then have a new appreciation of what has occurred on the world scene. Events that historians marvel about as seemingly lucky breaks or incredible coincidences often turn out to actually be the fulfillment of Bible prophecies.
Let me show you some astonishing examples. This was not something I expected when I bought the book What If? The World's Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been (1999), edited by Robert Cowley, the founding editor of MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History.
