Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

The Future

If you even knew five minutes into the future, I’m sure certain things would radically change for you. I’m not talking about playing blackjack in Vegas; rather, I’m thinking about what car or plane you would climb into. I’m thinking about what pill you would drop. I’m sure if Heath Ledger had known the future, he would have been more careful as to what he swallowed. I’m sure if JFK had known just 20 minutes into the future, he would have thought twice about climbing into a limo in Dallas. The fact is, we don’t know a moment into the future, but we can know Him who knows the future.

The Bible tells us that God created time and that He can flick through it, as you and I flick through the pages of a history book. Those who find that hard to believe simply need to study Matthew 24 or Luke 21, and see how the words of Jesus parallel history, before it came into being. The Word of God perfectly predicts the days in which we live. Jesus even predicted that we would be reading His words 2,000 years after they were written.

What's going to happen in the future? God knows; and it's an unspeakable consolation to know that with all the chaos and uncertainty in this world, there is Someone who is in control. Absolute control. You don't even write an email without His permission.
