Wrath To Come
Matthew 3:7-8
 
I'm still flabbergasted at that Lutheran Woman's contention that the Biblical Prophets did not foretell the future and that the book of Revelation is not a prophetic book revealing the undiluted wrath of God being poured out on a God hating rebellious world.
 
I must admit I'm also a bit baffled, because her Bio (contained in the book description) claims she is both a Lutheran minister and a theologian, then a few paragraphs down from her bio, the statement is found which reads, "she makes no claim to have a background in theology"(?!!).
 
I guess she's a theologian when it suits her, and then not a theologian when that suits her--and she has no shame whatsoever about lying about it when it suits her.
 
Well, enough of that.
 
I will contend that the Biblical prophets certainly did foretell the future and that the Revelation is a prophetic look at the wrath (of God) to come.
 
John (the Baptist) made no bones about (in Matthew 3:7) that wrath was coming.
 
He elaborated on this a few verses further down (in verses :11-12).
 
John knew what he was talking about, and Jesus backed him up on it in Luke 21:26 (where he said, "pray that you may be counted worthy to escape these things).
 
As far a the Revelation not being a prophetic book, the very first verse in the book itself refutes that absurd claim--
 
"...to show his servants things which
must shortly come to pass....
