God Has A Plan by Pastor Melissa Scott

But once you cross that Rubicon and you have examine the facts and have become convinced of the fact of the Resurrection, you are then free to go into the book with the eyes that see the risen Christ. You can look at Scripture with a mindset that says that God is faithful to perform what He said in the past, such as the prophecies and the words spoken regarding the coming of Jesus Christ, like the prophecy in Isaiah 9, “For unto us a child is born.” With all of those things having been fulfilled, then how much more will He fulfill His word in other prophecies? But there is a series of things that must happen in order for everything else to be lined up.

Now there will be people that will say, “Do you think everything then is wound up in God’s word? It’s all wound up and then somebody pulled the chain so now it’s just going to start unwinding until the end time?” No. I believe God has a plan. Perfect case in point: God had a plan when He put Adam in the garden. To prove that His creation is not a wind up toy, God allowed Adam to make a choice. Adam made a choice and it was a bad choice; he made a choice to disobey. So is everything all wound up? No, but God’s plan is laid out for a road map of the redemption and the return, the restoration to what we were supposed to be that Adam messed up. God loves freedom, but God has established set times and patterns for us to learn from.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that in the book of Revelation, chapter 1, verse 10, Jesus begins to talk to John, and John says that he heard the sound as of a trumpet speaking behind him. And then Jesus begins to tell John certain things. Now this picture is important, because if you step away from reading John’s writing in the book of Revelation and you go back and fix your eyes on the Old Testament, you begin to see the meaning. We know that everything in the Old Testament is a shadow and type. The New Testament is infolded in the Old Testament, and the Old Testament is unfolded in the New Testament.
