    Verse 20 and 21... Despise not prophesyings. (1. A foretelling; prediction; a declaration of something to come. As God only knows future events with certainty, no being but God or some person informed by him, can utter a real prophecy. The prophecies recorded in Scripture, when fulfilled, afford most convincing evidence of the divine original of the Scriptures

    "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night." As long as we are in the world we will have tribulation, and every generation has had something serious to deal with. While we see so many bad things happening, and getting worse and worse, it should move us to search and try our hearts and repent, and set in order all our ways before we come before Him.
