    Lesson 1: God used the Old Testament prophets in the similar way that He used the New Testament writers. “Godinspired them as full, thinking human beings.” They were not just “mechanical” mouth pieces.

    Lesson 6: A major theme of this lesson is God’s immutability: God’s character or attributes does not change, His covenant oaths remain valid forever and will not be broken, and His eternal plan for the universe will not fail.

    Lesson 7: I found it interesting that the purpose of prophecies were not just to tell people in advance what was going to happen in the future, but to activate people to seek the mercy of God to avoid judgement and find the blessings of God.

    Lesson 1

    It is important to understand prophecies. Actually if one is not careful and rightly LED BY the Spirit, there is the great possibility of misinterpreting the prophetic SCRIPTURES. There is the need to understand that the prophets were conscious when they spoke the word of God and not in a bizzarre situation. The Language used and the environment/situation is necessary to understand WHAT God has spoken forth through the mouth of the prophets.

    Lesson 3

    It is interesting to know that there is the covenants BY God to the world through Adam and Noah. Also the specific covenant to His CHOSEN people (ISRAEL) through Abraham, Moses and David as an EXAMPLE to the world on HOW God wants people to relate with themselves and with Him leading to The CHRIST the fulfillment of the covenants.

    Lesson 4 God mercies towards mankind is great. He gives us tremendous blessings which are made available as we are FAITHFUL BY His Spirit to obey His words. DISOBEDIENCE leads to judgement but the mercies of God always prevails to KEEP a remnant for the continuation of his blessings upon His people to fullfil His covenants.

    Lesson 6 tells us about the Events behind the writings of the prophets as well as the explanation of the Language of the prophets in Communicating Gods mind. We can see that the prophets played an important roll of INTERCESSION for Gods people as they pronouce Gods words of judgement. Their writings are mixed WITH judgement, blessings, praises and intercessions. With all these in mind, there is a better APPROACH of understanding the writings of the prophets.

    Lesson 8 tells us about the facts that the prophecies in the Old Testament had also some part of their fulfillment in the new tastement. Christ is the fullfilment of the prophecies that leads us into the future to enjoy Gods blessings or judgement.
