PROMISE #1: 2 Samuel 7:16
Dual Fulfillment of Prophecy
”Two events, widely separated as to the time of their fulfillment, may be brought together into the scope of one prophecy. This was done because the prophet had a message for his own day as well as for a future time . . . It was the purpose of God to give the near and far view so that the fulfillment of the one should be the assurance of the fulfillment of the other.”Dwight Pentecost
PROMISE #2: Genesis 12:1-3
PROMISE #3: Genesis 3:15
“If Jesus were born one thousand times in Bethlehem and not in me, then I would still be lost.”Corrie ten Boom
