Msg #1842 The Big Picture of Bible Prophecy

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice


The Gospel of Matthew chapter twenty-five comes just after Matthew chapter twenty-four. That is not profound, nor is it mentioned so a Bible student revert to baby-steps. People often segment God's Word into favorite stories, familiar passages, or memorized clips without keeping the holistic view of what God is communicating. This is all the more true when addressing Bible prophecy. When assembling a thousand piece jigsaw puzzle there is wisdom in putting the frame together first. Russel, Smith, White, Eddy and Camping had great followings but no idea where the frame-work fit. Matthew chapter twenty-four captures, “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of the coming, and the end of the world? …” and then, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh” (vrs. 3, 44). Chapter twenty-five teaches in parable, be ready, be busy, and be sure the Righteous Judge is coming. It has five wise virgins, five invested talents, and five righteous deeds considered by the Judge. Many spend effort on oil not shared but bought, a talent not used but squandered, and good deeds withheld at great peril. Remember, parables have one major principle in view. Their intent is to drive home one major thought. Don't get lost or mislead in minutia. “Be ye also ready”, “Occupy till I come”, and “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” … always keep the big picture in view. Matthew chapter twenty-five pretty much drives home the premier point of all the prophecy on the second coming of Christ: be ready, be busy, the Righteous Judge will soon appear. There is coming a Last October for this vile world, the Righteous Judge will set everything straight.
