The prophetic words of the Scriptures

Postby Ready1 on Sun Jul 09, 2017 8:45 am

I am curious how many different places are there in the OT which we can establish as " the prophetic words of the Scriptures " which would apply to these passages of Luke and Mark and the vengeance of the Lord. It seems like this Isaiah passage would be one of those which these probably refer to.

Luk 21:20 "And when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived.
Luk 21:21 Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. Those in Jerusalem must get out, and those out in the country should not return to the city.
Luk 21:22 For those will be days of God's vengeance, and the prophetic words of the Scriptures will be fulfilled.
Luk 21:23 How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. For there will be disaster in the land and great anger against this people.
Luk 21:24 They will be killed by the sword or sent away as captives to all the nations of the world. And Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the period of the Gentiles comes to an end.

Mar 13:14 "The day is coming when you will see the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing where he should not be." (Reader, pay attention!) "Then those in Judea must flee to the hills.
Mar 13:15 A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack.
Mar 13:16 A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat.
Mar 13:17 How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days.
Mar 13:18 And pray that your flight will not be in winter.
Mar 13:19 For there will be greater anguish in those days than at any time since God created the world. And it will never be so great again.
Mar 13:20 In fact, unless the Lord shortens that time of calamity, not a single person will survive. But for the sake of His chosen ones He has shortened those days.

Isa 33:14 The sinners in Jerusalem shake with fear. Terror seizes the godless. "Who can live with this devouring fire?" they cry. "Who can survive this all-consuming fire?"
Isa 33:15 Those who are honest and fair, who refuse to profit by fraud, who stay far away from bribes, who refuse to listen to those who plot murder, who shut their eyes to all enticement to do wrong—
Isa 33:16 these are the ones who will dwell on high. The rocks of the mountains will be their fortress. Food will be supplied to them, and they will have water in abundance.
Isa 33:17 Your eyes will see the king in all his splendor, and you will see a land that stretches into the distance.
Isa 33:18 You will think back to this time of terror, asking, "Where are the Assyrian officers who counted our towers? Where are the bookkeepers who recorded the plunder taken from our fallen city?"
Isa 33:19 You will no longer see these fierce, violent people with their strange, unknown language.
Isa 33:20 Instead, you will see Zion as a place of holy festivals. You will see Jerusalem, a city quiet and secure. It will be like a tent whose ropes are taut and whose stakes are firmly fixed.
Isa 33:21 The LORD will be our Mighty One. He will be like a wide river of protection that no enemy can cross, that no enemy ship can sail upon.
Isa 33:22 For the LORD is our judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us.
Isa 33:23 The enemies' sails hang loose on broken masts with useless tackle. Their treasure will be divided by the people of God. Even the lame will take their share!
Isa 33:24 The people of Israel will no longer say, "We are sick and helpless," for the LORD will forgive their sins.
Just observing.

Jer 4:17 They surround Jerusalem like watchmen around a field, for My people have rebelled against Me," says the LORD.
Jer 4:18 "Your own actions have brought this upon you. This punishment is bitter, piercing you to the heart!"
Jer 4:19 My heart, my heart—I writhe in pain! My heart pounds within me! I cannot be still. For I have heard the blast of enemy trumpets and the roar of their battle cries.
Jer 4:20 Waves of destruction roll over the land, until it lies in complete desolation. Suddenly my tents are destroyed; in a moment my shelters are crushed.
Jer 4:21 How long must I see the battle flags and hear the trumpets of war?
Jer 4:22 "My people are foolish and do not know Me," says the LORD. "They are stupid children who have no understanding. They are clever enough at doing wrong, but they have no idea how to do right!"
Jer 4:23 I looked at the earth, and it was empty and formless. I looked at the heavens, and there was no light.
Jer 4:24 I looked at the mountains and hills, and they trembled and shook.
Jer 4:25 I looked, and all the people were gone. All the birds of the sky had flown away.
Jer 4:26 I looked, and the fertile fields had become a wilderness. The towns lay in ruins, crushed by the LORD's fierce anger.
Jer 4:27 This is what the LORD says: "The whole land will be ruined, but I will not destroy it completely.
Jer 4:28 The earth will mourn and the heavens will be draped in black because of My decree against My people. I have made up My mind and will not change it."
Jer 4:29 At the noise of charioteers and archers, the people flee in terror. They hide in the bushes and run for the mountains. All the towns have been abandoned—not a person remains!
Jer 4:30 What are you doing, you who have been plundered? Why do you dress up in beautiful clothing and put on gold jewelry? Why do you brighten your eyes with mascara? Your primping will do you no good! The allies who were your lovers despise you and seek to kill you.
Jer 4:31 I hear a cry, like that of a woman in labor, the groans of a woman giving birth to her first child. It is beautiful Jerusalem gasping for breath and crying out, "Help! I'm being murdered!"
Just observing.
