Now and days most Christians read the bible and take it very seriously as a book of prophecy. One of the biggest concerns that Christians have in reading a pieces of scriptures, is to take verses out of context. If we consider ourselves to be a Christian and think this way we have to be very careful, because instead of seeing the bible as a prophetic book, we would just be looking at the bible just like any regular book. When we read novels and try to understand a sentence without looking at the whole chapter we may misinterpret the sentence, if we try to make up some theory of what the writer is talking about in that particular sentence. But with the bible this same rule does not always apply, because even though we made read about things happening in the past, those stories are actually prophecies, as it written Ecclesiastes 3:15, “Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account,” Romans 15:4, “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope,” Hebrews 10:1, “The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves..,” Colossians 2:17, “These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ,” 1 Corinthians 10:11, “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come,” and Revelation 1:3, “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.” Of course it is ok for us to read in context, when we are trying to understand the story, but when it comes to learning about prophecy, there is a different way that we must read the bible.

      In looking at the early church and how the Apostles taught at that time, we can understand what is the correct way to teach from the bible, Romans 9:25-29, “As he says in Hosea: I will call them ‘my people’ who are not my people; and I will call her ‘my loved one’ who is not my loved one (Hosea 2:23), and It will happen that in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘sons of the living God (Hosea 1:10). Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality (Isaiah 10:22, 23). It is just as Isaiah said previously: Unless the Lord Almighty had left us descendants, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah (Isaiah 1:9),” Romans 10:11-21, “As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame (Isaiah 28:16). For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,  for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Joel 2:32)…And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news (Isaiah 52:7). But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message (Isaiah 53:1)? Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world (Psalms 19:4). Again I ask: Did Israel not understand? First, Moses says, I will make you envious by those who are not a nation; I will make you angry by a nation that has no understanding (Deuteronomy 32:21) . And Isaiah boldly says, I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me (Isaiah 65:1). But concerning Israel he says, All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people (Isaiah 65:2),” and Romans 15:9-12, “so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written: Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name (2 Samuel 22:50). Again, it says, Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people (Deuteronomy 32:43). And again, Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples (Psalms 117:1). And again, Isaiah says, The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him (Isaiah 11:10).” At that time we can see that when Apostle begin to teach the people about prophecy, he did not only just read within the context of the chapters but he went to various verses that match, which all talked about the same subject. Then this is the way to understand the prophecies in the bible, but because of many pastors and leaders of the church don’t teach this way, God has sealed up the bible, so that even though they may read it, they will never understand the deep prophecies within the scriptures, as it states Isaiah 28:9-10, “Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast? For it is: Do and do, do and do, rule on rule, rule on rule a little here, a little there,” and Isaiah 29:10-12, “The Lord has brought over you a deep sleep: He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers). For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, “Read this, please, he will answer, I can’t; it is sealed. Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” he will answer; I don’t know how to read. Without taking a little from each verse that, talks about a particular subject, they cannot and will not understand the deep prophecies within the scriptures.
