CQOD: 07/14/07 -- Newton: the function of prophecy

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 14, 2007
Feast of John Keble, Priest, Poet, Tractarian, 1866
    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.
    ... Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your prophets confirm Your providence.
