Some people recall how in 1997, 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult took their own lives. They did it hoping to hitch a ride on a comet. Expecting the earth to soon self-destruct, they wanted to escape. History records many false predictions. The Bible is our only reliable source of prophecy. Example: King David predicted that one of his descendants would assume the twin title of priest and king. One thousand years before Christ was born, David wrote in Psalm 110 “The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit in the place of honor at my right hand until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet. The LORD will extend your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem; you will rule over your enemies. The LORD has taken an oath and will not break his vow: You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” One thousand years later, Jesus was born. He was a master teacher and miracle worker. His enemies crucified him, but he arose again and returned to heaven. Speaking of Jesus, Peter, in Acts Chapter 2 said of King David’s prediction, “[he, David] was looking into the future, and speaking of the Messiah’s resurrection.” The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is both human and divine. Divinely speaking, He is the Son of God. Humanly speaking, He is the son of King David. We gladly confess Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
