It is written in both the Old and
that it SHALL come to pass in the last days
that God will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh
and the sons AND daughters,
those "seed" who shall come and serve Jesus Christ in the final generation
and shall declare His righteousness (Ps. 22:30),
will both "See" (understand) the "Visions" of the prophets
and they shall "Prophesy" (which means to teach the prophet's) to their brothers and sisters.
Here is Peter on that first Pentecost Day following the resurrection of our Lord quoting (in the New Testament) from the Book of Joel (in the Old Testament):
Acts 2:17 (from Joel 2:28) And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
By the way, not only will the sons
and daughters of the final generation of the fig tree see the visions,
as in understand the visions, but they will also "see them come to pass".
Truly this is the most exciting of all "Biblical times" in which to live.
It is the time of the event-packed
the time that all the great prophets and the disciples heard about
and wrote about and yet incredibly,
it is you and I who are the ones privileged to actually be living in those days!
We have now come to the seventh book (chronologically)
of the Minor Prophets
called the Book of Nahum, whose subject, purpose, and time spoken of
are all derived from an understanding of the very first verse.
Nahum 1:1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
