From the Administrator
The name "Spirit of Prophecies" highlights a major category of the material on this all-English site. It is derived from the declaration an angel made to the apostle John recorded in Revelation 19:10.
"The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
Simple, yet profound, this declaration contains four of the most important nouns in the English language. The name "Jesus." Then, connected directly with it: "Testimony," "spirit," and "prophecy." It is analyzed carefully in the article by the same name on this site.
"Prophecy" is one of the major categories of subjects in the Bible. It pulsates with "light that shines" in dark places of the mind, heart, and spirit, not only for Christians but also in special, practical ways for the great multitudes of people around the globe who are not yet Christians. Its ongoing relevancy and fulfillment drive our efforts to make its powerful light shine as brightly as possible for the whole world. 2 Peter 1:19-21
Materials in other categories of spiritual knowledge are also offered as indicated by the links below the graphic in the heading.
"Pardoned," i. e., "saved, redeemed, rescued, born anew, sanctified, transformed."
"Added," i. e., "transferred to the kingdom of God; added to the church Christ built."
"Enlightened," i. e., "instructed, informed, educated, oriented."
"Comforted," i. e., "consoled, encouraged, motivated, advised, given hope."
"Transported," i. e., "carried away to spiritual realms, departed from the physical body, caught up."
"Glorified," is another category to be added and perhaps others.
My fervent desire and prayer are that every visitor to this site may find here at least some treasure for his or her mind-soul-spirit and that none will stumble on life's road, so as to even turn from the pursuit of the truth, because of any view, opinion, interpretation, or application presented by this writer.
Sincerely, Homer Dewayne Shappley, evangelist
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed
as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star
rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture
is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came
by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they
were moved by the Holy Spirit.”
2 Peter 1:19-21
“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4
