Hope in the Promise by Dr. Keith Beutler

In 1905, theologian Willis Beecher observed that though we refer to the Bible’s prophecies of Christ as predictions, the Scriptures frame them more largely as promises. By thinking of the hundreds of Bible prophecies that Jesus Christ fulfilled merely as accurate predictions, we risk thinking of God as only a prescient knower, and missing the point of the Bible: that, gifting Himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ, according to His own promise, Jehovah God has revealed himself to us not just as some super seer, but as a passionate, trustworthy, promise-keeping lover on whom we can forever, fully rely.
