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
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.
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--
his servants things which
come to pass....
