The Bible was written thousands of years ago,but it is as relevant as ever today. The Prophet Habakkuk's account is a prime example. Hediscussed three endtime catastrophes, followed by the greatest event in history. Discoverthe remarkable accuracy of the book of Habakkuk. Learn where we are in biblical prophecy next,on The Key of David, with Gerald Flurry. Greetings, everyone. Where ARE we in Bibleprophecyé The booklet or book of Habakkuk tells us in very specific terms where we arein Bible prophecy, and this book gives us the big OVERVIEW. It discusses four greatevents, and in the process tells us exactly where we are in prophecy, and I mean getsvery, very specific and precise in many ways.
The first three events are very deadly anddangerous, and the last one is the most beautiful and a wonderful event that you could everimagine because it's going to bring a thrill, should bring a thrill to all of us about whatis coming upon this Earth, and I mean in a very few years. The first great event discussed here is aWAR, an actual WAR going on, a spiritual war between God's own people, perhaps the greatestwar in God's Church EVER because, well, it is great because there are a lot of peopleinvolved, and that means eternal lives are won or lost, so that is EXTREMELY serious.
The next great event is that a new SUPERPOWERis going to explode on the world scene, and it's not Russia, it's not China, it's notIran. It's a European power. And this European powerthenext great eventis going to start a NUCLEAR WORLD WAR III and it's all very clear rightthere in your Bible, written over 2500 years ago. The Earth is going to be have a majorCHANGE, though. The fourth great event tells about God fillingthe Earth with hope and joy forever. Now, that's something that I want to show you howit's going to be done, and why it's so CRITICAL to learn that now, so that we can have hopein our lives today BEFORE it actually is a
reality on this Earth, and for ALL mankind. So let's see where we are in Bible prophecyand see how specific and concrete that God does get in these prophecies. Habakkuk 2 andverse 2 from the Revised Standard Version. It reads: quot;And the LORD answered me: quot;Writethe vision;quot; which is a prophecy that I'll talk to you about today throughout the program,quot;make it plain upon tablets, so HE may run who reads it.quot; The very URGENT message, EXTREMELYurgent. Make it clear so people can run or really move fast because this prophecy iscoming fast at all of us. Verse 3: quot;For still the vision awaits itstime;quot; or its appointed time according to
the King James, quot;it hastens to the enditwill not lie.quot; It hastens to the END, right here in this end time, the end of the ageof man ruling over man. It HASTENS to that end, and this new Earth filled with joy andhope for all men and all women on this Earth. It goes on to say in verse 3: quot;If it seemslow, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay.quot; Surely that's one of themost urgent messages in all the Bible, TREMENDOUSLY urgent! A specific time appointed, it sayshere. This is a special time. And here's what the Anchor Bible Commentarystates: quot;These few prose particles are enough to show that the discourse is not general,but it is referring to specific topics, concrete
objects. God is getting extremely concreteand specific.quot; He discusses three individuals here I'll show you in the very first chapter,and tells you that you can determine who they are, certainly two of them have already beenon the scene, and you can PROVE that to yourself. Now, that shows you something in the Biblethat most people don't understand, but God gets SO SPECIFIC that ANYBODY ought to bemoved and stirred by what they read in their own Bibles. And of course, it also talks abouta great court brawl and a mighty empire that is already on the scene, but just waitingfor its strong man, and that is going to shock the world when that happens, and it probablywill happen this year or next.

How to Understand Bible Prophecy
The Key of David with Gerald Flurry. Greetings, everyone. This whole world is deceivedabout Bible prophecy. How can we understand Bible prophecyé Well, when JesusChrist was on this Earth, He gave us the focal point of prophesied events in the OlivetProphecy, and that is Matthew chapter 24 and Mark chapter 13 and Luke chapter 21; threeversions of that. But Matthew 24 is the greatest prophecy that Christ gave when Hewas on this Earth, the greatest single prophecy.Now, everything sort of pivots around Matthew 24, if you want to understand Bibleprophecy. Christ talked about the SIGN of
His Second Coming. There's a SIGN that youcan see about His Second Coming and when it's going to be, or the SIGN of the end ofthis age. He gave SIGNS, and He wants us to read those signs and understand when theseprophecies are going to be fulfilled. We ALL should want to do that. But anyhow, thisprophecy in Matthew 24 discusses the SIGN of His Second Coming and the end of theage that we're now living in, and the end of this evil world that we're a part oftoday. Matthew 16, verses 16 and 17, and there wasconfusion about Christ's identity here, and Jesus asked Peter: â€œWell, I know these otherpeople are confused about who I am, but
who do YOU think I am, Peteré Who do YOU thinkI améâ€� Notice how Peter answered that: â€œAnd Simon Peter answered and said,Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.(17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for fleshand blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.â€� Now,that's a giant lesson there that human beings needto learn, that flesh and blood did not reveal toSimon Peter who Christ was! It was something BEYOND flesh and blood, BEYOND thefive senses that revealed that to Peter, and
yet it's a lesson that we really haven'tlearned in this worldâ€”that is, the Christian world,anyhow. But Peter understood that deeply and that's, of course, one of the big reasonswhy Christ put him in charge of the Church, physically. Of course, Christ ALWAYS leadsthe Church spiritually if it's His true Church, but He also has a physical leaderthat He appoints, as He did the Apostle Peter. But He says here that we're talking aboutand discussing what God reveals, what God hasto reveal. He has to reveal Bible prophecy to us if we're going to understand it.Notice Luke 21 and verse 36, still a part
of the Olivet Prophecy, and He was speakingabout world events in our generation, this end time generation, and He warned us to dothis, that is, Christ did it when He was on this Earth. Notice what He said: â€œWatchye therefore, and pray always, that ye may beaccounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand beforethe Son of man.â€� Now, He's saying here, when He says â€œWatch,â€� it means watch worldevents. What do you know about world eventsé What do I know about world eventséNot local events, but WORLD events. And if we don't understand THAT, we don'tunderstand Bible prophecy. And a little sidebar
here isâ€”if you want to escape all thesethings, you'd better understand this. You'd betterunderstand. You'd better watch world events. But there's more to it than that! But wedo have to watch world events if we're goingto understand Bible prophecy. We MUST do that!Notice what Mr. Herbert Armstrong wrote years ago. He said: â€œUnless one understandsBiblical prophecy, knows God's purpose, he does not really know what to look for,what is vital, what is not. He cannot really understandworld news or where it is leading.â€� He's
