Prophecy Thread of Week 13
Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:
Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
ISRAEL WILL DESPOIL EGYPT
When time gets closer to a promise fulfillment, there are more details added. When Abram was getting closer to Isaac’s birth, God renewed the promise and added more details. This time He stated Abram’s descendants would be in a foreign land four generations (Gen 15:16) and that when they came out they would plunder their captors. God is just, and the Israelites received their wages from the Egyptians who tried to steal it from them. We too will receive just reward, if not in this life then in the next.
