There has been increased interest on this blog, lately, in the prophecy charts my sister and researcher, Claire Gumbs, has developed over nearly ten years.
Although some of the information can be accessed elsewhere in the Church, on websites and blogs, books and articles, some is only yet available in a few places. In my view, Claire’s two-page per topic, graphic-design presentation that, if downloaded (free) can be made into a tri-fold, makes for an efficient reference and teaching tool particularly for visual learners and anybody with limited time.
Because of the interest, and especially for new viewers and followers, we have decided to feature each of them again on this “front page” of the blog.
We hope the reader will be inspired and edified by the “blessed hope” cited in the Scriptures particularly in the days in which we now live that many prophecy students and scholars believe may well be the waning days of the so-called “Church Age.”
Below is the first of eight charts* with their introductions including one addendum. The entire series can be immediately accessed here. as well as on the header. In the next few weeks I will be adding the remaining charts, updated as needed, in between other posts.
As Claire and I continue to say, though, like the Bereans who “examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true,” do your own research as well, which is of the utmost importance in these days of the proliferation of false doctrines along with cult and occult influences coming into the church. We are especially, in this era, urged to stay in the Word of God and to study it in context.
*Claire is currently working on a ninth chart on the subject of the “splitting of time” which will be featured when it is completed.
Introduction to the [Prophecy Charts] Series
Orginally Posted August 19, 2016
My sister Claire Gumbs is a researcher and illustrator with a keen eye for patterns in history and in prophecy.
Since the beginning of 2010 Claire has been impressed to develop a series of 8 prophecy-related teaching tools designed as [charts] for easy and free reference by other researchers, teachers, pastors, evangelists, and believers who sense, as we do, that Jesus Christ is very soon coming for His Bride. She cites the following verse as her “marching orders”:
“(And) the Lord answered me and said: ‘Write the vision, and make it plain on tables, that he may run who reads it…” Habakkuk 2:2.
Perhaps it is you who will “run with it”?
Simply click on each [chart] to download. Copy them back to back if you prefer so that they become tri-folds, or present them as two pages.
We believe the timing and the time is right–and necessary [to re-post them]. We believe that you, too, will sense how many of the prophetic elements Claire has discovered in her studies seem to be converging just now in 2016 [even more so now in 2019].
As you carefully consider what is presented here—and in myriad other venues as we near the end of the Church Age–we believe you, too, may be inspired to “get the word (and the Word) out” to your loved ones in whatever manner the Lord has so inspired you.
[Chart] 1, click: Time 2 updated Aug 2019
This [chart] features:
- The significance of the series of 14 generations cited in Matthew 1:17 as presented on a timeline including what happened in this pattern that is prophetically significant.
- What prophetic “beginning” each epoch represents, and how 2018 is another year in the pattern. 2018 is, of course, when the modern State of Israel will “turn 70,” which prompts the thoughtful believer to wonder what else the Lord might have in mind for 2018.
- The 70 year pattern in prophecy.
[…] We…encourage you to resist the “normalcy bias” of believing things will always go on as they have always gone on.
If our God knows “the end from the beginning,” the thoughtful student of prophecy will consider that there are “ends” to epochs and eras in the spiritual realm even as such are evidenced in the natural realm.
May God bless and inspire you.
May we also impress upon you that the time may be very short until Jesus returns. If you have not yet received Him as your personal Lord and Savior, the time is right, now, for you. Ask Him into your life and your heart today.
