The Prophecy Code — Doug Batchelor
Have you come to the conclusion that Bible Prophecy cannot be understood? Think again. There is a true to God's Word and perfectly accurate historical representation of Bible Prophecy that can be understood called the “Prophecy Code” and “Discover Prophecy.” The truth about the antichrist taught in these seminars was understood by our early Church fathers such as Martin Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, Wesley, Wycliffe, Tyndale, the translators of the King James Bible, Sir Isaac Newton and many others. Why has the Church forgotten these truths? What else has been lost or changed? Who was it that changed the Ten Commandments as Bible prophecy reveals and why? Don't just take my word for it, watch one and decide for yourself. From the links below you can watch either of these international television series on Bible prophecy which were broadcast all around the world. All that is required is a reasonably fast internet connection.
NOTE: The advanced lessons in section 2 and 3 should be accessed in order. Most of the “Prophecy Code” episodes have long introductions with singing items and questions. If you would like to go straight to the sermon you may need to start about 17-20 minutes in.
THE CRISIS: Terrorist attacks, droughts, floods, tidal waves, famines, global warming, wars, unimaginable crimes—natural and man made disasters are at an all time high. Do you ever wish you could escape from it all and hide somewhere safe? Do you worry sometimes that the world we leave to our children may become a living nightmare?
Though world catastrophes increase at an alarming rate, we can face the future with confidence! God has offered each of us security through His gift of prophecy. These very situations we face today have been foretold in ancient prophecies.
THE PURPOSE: The purpose of these seminars is to share the peace and assurance that each believer can have in facing earth's final days. Though chaos may erupt around us, we can rest secure in the palm of God's hand.
THE SPEAKER: The son of wealthy and influential parents, the young Doug Batchelor chose a life of crime, parties, drugs and drifting. Eventually, weary of both the whirl of New York City high society and the darkness of street life, he abandoned civilization and took up residence in a mountain cave outside of Palm Desert, California. Finding an old Bible in the cave, he began a life transforming adventure that has continued for the past 25 years.
Through years of intense Bible study and his own experience of personal transformation, Doug has found many illuminating keys to understanding the Bible. He combines a down-to-earth, sometimes humorous explanation of the Bible with the uncanny ability to make even the most complex Christian teachings make sense for today. His skill in showing the links between ancient Bible prophecies and current world events has captivated audiences around the world.
Today the director and speaker of the worldwide ministry of Amazing Facts, Doug is the host of the popular weekly radio program Bible Answers Live, speaker for the Millennium of Prophecy satellite series, and the author of several books, including The Richest Caveman, At Jesus' Feet: The Gospel According to Mary Magdalene, and most recently, Broken Chains.
KEYS TO PROPHECY: Paul the apostle admonishes, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17. The Bible promises to unlock itself, providing keys in its verses that explain the hidden messages in other passages. By comparing different texts on the same subject, viewing their bearing on every side, the Scriptures become clear. In this way, light is shed upon the hidden meaning of the Word.
The first verse of the book of Revelation tells us the purpose for which God gave it: “…to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass.” Revelation 1:1. Incredibly, however, some people believe that even though Revelation starts with a blessing for those who “read,” “hear” and “keep” the things written in it, it cannot be understood. Did you know that of the 404 verses in the book of Revelation, over 270 are taken almost word-for-word right out of other places in the Bible? This indicates that the keys to unlock Revelation can be found in various places in the rest of the Bible.
Revelation 1:3 “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
During the Prophecy Code seminar, the Bible will explain itself to you. By comparing scripture with scripture, you will find for yourself the keys to understanding some of the most amazing prophecies. As a result, your life—and your Bible study—will never be the same.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES: Probably all of us have heard by now about the alarming signs, such as the receding tide, that thousands of people did not distinguish just before the fatal tsunami struck on December 26, 2004. Perhaps the most tragic aspect of the disaster is that thousands upon thousands of lives could have been saved—if only people had recognized the warning signs!
Horrifying disasters and criminal acts are increasing at a frightening rate by the year. Many people live with the dark dread that the next disaster or crime might strike their family. We awaken every morning to a world in crisis; “Homeland Security” cannot solve the problems looming on the horizon.
But the Bible foretells these exact conditions existing just before the end of the world. It warns what is next: “Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:26-27
The end of this world as we know it—is it just around the corner?
The opening night's topic, “Prophecy's Final Countdown,” will give you astounding concrete evidence that things in this world cannot continue much longer as they are. This exploration of Bible prophecies and their fulfilment in modern facts will lay the foundation for understanding the great crisis that is about to sweep the world off its feet. Even more important, it will give you the keys you need to help prepare yourself and those you love. When your life is at stake—it pays to be able to recognize the signs. Watch the Prophecy Code and find out how the Ten Commandments are a major factor in end time Bible prophecy.
