Whose Counting?

by Wendy Wippel

Last week I kind of casually threw out the  supposition that the Bible could be considered  two-thirds  prophecy. Let’s just say I caught a little flak for that. I will say first that  I didn’t make that figure up;  I heard it—often—from Chuck Missler, someone I credit for most of what I know today.

And he didn’t make it up either. He got it from David. And from Jesus. And from the voice of God Himself.  So… I guess I have some ‘splaining to do…

Let’s start with the Old Testament. The first prophecy in the Bible follows hard on Eve’s transgression in the Garden of Eden, when God tells Adam and Eve that their future is not going to be as cushy as their past. Although He does give them hope in a second prophecy that promises eventual victory over the deceiver: “I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed; that seed shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

The section of the Bible called the major and minor prophets is—no brainer—largely prophecy. Sixteen books worth, actually. But there is more in the rest of the O.T. then you probably think. God gives Abraham more than a few heads up on the future of his descendants, and then gives Jacob even more.  Add all that prophecy in as well.

And then there’s the Psalms…
