Will the world end this year ? Will the mark of the beast be enforced ? Psychics, fortune tellers and even some misguided ministers say they know what events will take place tomorrow. Many may claim to know what is going to happen in the future and even what will happen within the next 12 months but there is only One who knows for sure. God Himself is all-knowing and can penetrate the mysteries of the future consistently without flaw. Those who connect with Him through Jesus Christ by faith are granted the privilege of understanding those things about the future which He reveals in His word. The Bible reveals today’s principles that are shaping tomorrow’s events. Many of these same principles rule in the lives of human beings and makes us somewhat predictable.
