HISTORY'S JUNGLE KINGDOM (10 OF 15)
Rev. Jim Henry
There's a lot of interest in prophecy and today
as we look in the Book of Daniel we're going to be
looking at the prophetic section of this Scripture.
Some people talk about prophecy and seem to have a
fairly good insight into it. About 500 years ago, 43
years before Columbus discovered America, there was an
English woman, Mother Shipton, who was a keen student
of the Bible. She wrote this prophetic poem:
And now a word in uncouth rhyme of what shall be in
For in those wondrous far off days, the women shall
adopt a craze
To dress like men and trousers wear, and cut off
all their locks of hair;
They'll ride astride with brazen brow as witches do
on broomsticks now.
Then love shall die and marriage cease and nations
wane as babies decrease.
Then wives will fondle cats and dogs and men shall
live the same as hogs.
A carriage, without horses, shall go, disaster fill
the world with woe.
Around the world men's thoughts shall fly, quick as
the twinkling of an eye.
And waters shall great wonders do; how strange and
yet it will come true.
Then upside down the world shall be.
Through towering hill proud men shall ride, no horse
or mule move by his side.
Beneath the water, men shall walk; shall ride,
sleep and even talk;
And in the air, men shall be seen, in white and
black as well as green.
A great man then shall come and go, for prophecy
declares it so.
Interesting, this prophetic rhyme which she
wrote. She did hit on several things that have come
to pass even unto our own generation. She nor no
other person is totally accurate; there is only one
person and one book that's totally accurate about
prophecy and that is the Word of God.
