It is not so much that God can see into the future, but rather that the plan for mankind is written and God controls the play being acted out on the stage of life.
To the ordinary human it seems that time and circumstances are controlling our lives whereas it is really God who creates evil and good in our lives all according to God's purpose and desires.

Very sorry to hear about your son. I know what you are going through, bro.  I have a child as well, and we had a scare last year when she became severely dehydrated from the flu and had to be rushed to the hospital.  I will remember him in my prayers.  God be with you all.  Much love.

When you phrase it like that, Dave, I understand even better what you are saying. I'm a bit slow at times, but I come around if you give me the chance. :)

My youngest son has broken out with these severe hives from head to toe, and we've had to call the ambulance for him twice now. He is back home, but they want us to call the ambulance again if his condition worsens, as they have an EpiPen on standby in case he needs it. He is also sick with the flu or some nasty cold with a sore and swollen throat. Most of us here are sick with the same flu/cold, as it's that time of year.

I've been staying up keeping an eye on him as he sleeps, and I just wanna cry when I look at his pale body covered in red hives everywhere. When he is awake, he says he is fine, even though he can't stop scratching and coughing at times.

My wife and I are weary and tired, and you can imagine how that could affect our interactions with each other.

No doubt there were lies and errors before Jesus made these statements.  But the Egyptians and Babylonians, while deceiving many (including Judaism), did not come in HIS name, saying HE is the Christ.  That role is only played by Christians, axiomatically.  That's the part that is new, not having existed before.  He didn't come until He came, and He didn't establish His church until He did--though both of these things were prophesied in the OT.

Mike's question was whether Matt. 24 was prophecy or parable.  In my view, it is both.  BUT:  The prophetic element in Jesus' teaching his disciples is NOT the "prophecy" espoused by the Church, writ large, and moreso by those whose concentration is so consumed by it.  Many will/have come saying.  Be not deceived.

Did Ray ever expound on this scripture in relation to God’s knowing the end from the beginning (His Sovereignty)? And in relation to a time and season for everything? God knows the number of hairs on our head and that changes daily. I have often wondered about the scripture below.

KJ Ecc. 9:11
I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Time and chance….the unknown…the unexpected…..the unplanned. Is that what it is saying in the scripture?

Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear[191. akouó ] of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

akouó: to hear, listen
Original Word: ἀκούω
Part of Speech: Verb
Transliteration: akouó
Phonetic Spelling: (ak-oo'-o)
Definition: to hear, listen
Usage: I hear, listen, comprehend by hearing; pass: is heard, reported

As Ray always said - pay attention to the words.

We can hear the wars and rumors of wars only because of the internet.
Think about it, how many wars and rumors of wars had you heard (from newspaper, TV, radio) before the internet age?
Bhutan (the Himalayan kingdom) was so remote that many of its inhabitants didn’t even hear about WW2 until it was over.
China has been threatening to invade Taiwan for more than 50 years. Did people who were growing up in the 40s or 50s actually hear the tensions between China and Taiwan at that time?

I bet many people around the world wouldn't even hear about the 911 attacks if it's not for the internet.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness[3142. marturion] unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

marturion: a testimony, a witness
Original Word: μαρτύριον, ου, τό
Part of Speech: Noun, Neuter
Transliteration: marturion
Phonetic Spelling: (mar-too'-ree-on)
Definition: a testimony, a witness
Usage: witness, evidence, testimony, proof.

Where can we see the "witness, evidence, testimony, proof" 24/7/365? The internet is the only place that we can see bible truths 24/7/365.

What's new and unique is the internet age. We wouldn't even have a chance to learn about bible truths if it's not for the internet.
