THE END POINT
The prophetic Voice to Abraham established Israel…and later the prophetic Voice projected Israel's fall. The Old Testament prophets, by God's Voice through them, established the coming of the Messiah to His own, and that same Voicepredicted their rejection of Him as the end of the matter for Israel. Thus Christ said, "I turn to a people who are not yet a people," and that Word established the time when the body of Christ would be drawn from every nation. The book of Revelation was, and yet is, a prophecy given to the Apostle John with instruction to write what he had seen and heard about events leading to the end of the age! Paul's exhortation to Timothy was that he should remember the prophecies that went before him for they had a fulfilling end.
1 Tim 1:18
18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
1 Tim 4:14-15
14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
This is all proof that without the prophetic Voice there is no establishing of an end point. Thus when that Voice is rejected and, even worse, said not to any more exist, we are doomed to wander in a spiritual wasteland with no end. The prophetic voice establishes a goal, an end of the matter, and will exhort us onward until we can say...I have finished my course!
