Why Do These Prophecies Matter?
These prophecies show us that God is truly faithful to every one of his promises. He has a flawless track record. Everything that he said he would do has been done, and all of those promises that we are still waiting for are going to be completed soon. Just as surely as Christ came in his first advent (coming), we can be assured that he is coming again in his second advent. Christ has died, Christ has risen, and Christ will come again!
