Learn How to Understand Bible Prophecy A lot of Christians at present do not read Bible prophecy due to the entire prophetic symbols found therein. However, Bible prophecy is there for us to understand, or else God would not have allowed its inclusion in the Bible. The purpose of Bible prophecy is not to mystify, but to MAKE KNOWN! Exactly as the opening in the book of Revelation affirms. It reveals “Jesus Christ”. Thus, since Bible prophecy is to reveal, God did not write it in a manner that none of us could grasp its meaning. Neither is the prophecy in the Bible open to one’s own understanding because according to 2 Peter 1:20 no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. Therefore, how are we going to interpret Bible prophecy? What would be the best way for understanding what all of the prophetic symbols reveal? Actually, the Bible interprets itself, and so when we stumble upon a word which meaning is vague, then we search elsewhere within the Bible for that certain word to find out what it stands for. Here is an example. Revelation 13 tells of 2 beasts. One beast emerges from the seas and one arises up from the earth. Well, if we only read this single chapter then we may find it a little, if not totally difficult to understand its meaning. On the other hand, if we let the Bible reveal itself, then we can come across some interpretation of this. We, therefore, need to uncover what a “beast’ represents in this Bible prophecy. If we proceed to Daniel 7, there is a verse that says. “‘As for the fourth beast, there is going to be a fourth kingdom on earth”. And lo, there it is! The beast in the prophecy of the Bible represents a kingdom or nation. Then, we know that Revelation 13 is actually referring to 2 nations of our world.

We likewise have to make use of logic when it come to interpreting the Bible, so if we consider the second beast, according to Revelation 13 it comes up from out of the earth, in place of the sea. Such that if a place where there are lots of people, nations and dialects is represented by the “sea” then logic will tell us that “earth” refers to the contrary and signifies a nation that rose up from some wilderness, non-populated region, such as America did.

Now you see that using the Bible for its own interpretation will open up the prophecy and reveal great things to us. However, we must at all times learn about these things in a humble prayerful way and request God to make us understand, keeping in mind that He is the supreme cause of wisdom.
