Newton: the function of prophecy

Wednesday, December 21, 2016
    [Peter:] “All the prophets testify about [Jesus] that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”
    —Acts 10:43 (NIV)
    God gave the prophecies, not to gratify men’s curiosity by enabling them to foreknow things, but that after they were fulfilled they might be interpreted by the event, and His own providence, not the interpreter’s, be thereby manifested to the world.
    ... Isaac Newton (1642-1727), Commentary on Daniel, Darby and Browne, 1733, p. 101 (see the book)
    See also Acts 10:43; Isa. 53:11; Joel 2:28-29; Mic. 7:18; Luke 24:25-27,44-45; John 1:45; 5:39-40; Acts 26:22; 2 Pet. 1:19-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your prophets confirm Your providence.
