BREXIT AND BIBLE PROPHECY
If so many Christians weren’t taking it so seriously, the claims that Britain’s exit (“Brexit”) from the European Union was prophesied in the Bible would be seriously funny. But alas, many Dispensational Bible teachers are indeed claiming to have Biblical support for their claim that Britain’s exit from the E.U. was prophesied! Here’s two immediate reasons why these claims can not be correct.
Interpreting Bible prophecies is just like interpreting any other genre of Biblical literature. To do this, we must read a verse in context (textual, historical, occasional), use Scripture to interpret Scripture, understand that no Scripture is written to us but that it is written for us, and that while there can be multiple applications of a text there can not be multiple correct interpretations of a text (because God always has an intended meaning for His Word). Considering these classic features of Bible interpretation, it makes the claim that the Bible foretold Britain’s exit from the E.U. impossible – despite how many paperback books someone has sold – or how big their TV audience might be – or how many Twitter followers they have!
For many of these pastors, the field of eschatology is a void for them. While they have come to understand the difficulties in trying to reconcile Scripture with such a Dispensational view of Bible Prophecy, they have not necessarily developed a consistent, concordant (incorporates all that Scripture teaches about eschatology), convincingly Biblical eschatology. This is why thousands of pastors from around world have found the eBook, THE MOST EMBARRASSING BOOK IN THE BIBLE so helpful. Check it out and you’ll see why.
