These are all warning markers—danger!—in our history books, written down so that we don’t repeat their mistakes. Our positions in the story are parallel—they at the beginning, we at the end—and we are just as capable of messing it up as they were. Don’t be so naive and self-confident. You’re not exempt. You could fall flat on your face as easily as anyone else. Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. Cultivate God-confidence. Message 1 Corinthians 1o:11-12
The bible is historically accurate, not mere myth and legend, and much can be learned from the events and personalities of past ages. Bible history is also a forerunner of events that are yet to transpire – prophetic events – that the God who knows all things and made all things has preserved for our understanding. Judeo Christians value the lessons of history and the word of prophecy that gives us wisdom to live our lives today. Bible prophecy and history also provide hope for the future, for us, for our children and for all people.
