Prophetic Mile Markers
Luke 21:31 (NKJV)
31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.
As early as Roman times stone columns were set by the side of the roads to indicate the number of miles or kilometres to a particular destination. This is how the term milestone was born and is still used today. called mile posts in America or Kilometre pegs in Australia, they occur at regular intervals along highways, indicating distance travelled from a certain point.
In 1920 a zero milestone was erected just south of the White House in Washington DC. distances from the nations capital were to be measured from that point.
Prophetic Mile Markers
Just as a highway milestone, or kilometre peg, serves to keep one oriented on a geographical journey, so God’s prophetic markers keep people oriented on humankind’s journey through time. We could say the the zero prophetic mile stone is Genesis 3:15 where the prophetic promise of satan’s defeat is found.
15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.” Genesis 3:15 (NKJV)
The destination is the eternal city, the new Jerusalem.
The Glory of the New Jerusalem 22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. Revelation 21:22 (NKJV). In between, prophetic markers are found in Scripture, especially related to the past, present and future of God’s chosen people, Israel.
The greater your knowledge of God’s prophetic markers, the greater your security in an insecure world.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
