 Ezekiel and the Oracles Against Tyre
Invariably this discussion turns to the nature of prophecy, and the theological implications various ways of understanding Scripture have on how prophecy should be viewed.
This, as it often does, assumes a certain theory of inspiration of Scripture in order to maintain its inerrancy, which is then used in a circular fashion, to confirm the same theories of inspiration (see Revelation and Inspiration of Scripture and God’s Foreknowledge, Predestination, and Human Freedom).
All this says that to attempt to relate this prophecy to events 250 years later simply to vindicate a certain view of prophecy is not valid, and borders on not dealing with the biblical text honestly.

 Prophecy Articles from Contender Minstries
The Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament were fulfilled through Jesus Christ our Savior and Many more will be fulfilled when he reigns again in the Millennial Kingdom.
The usual argument I hear against the study of end-time prophecy is that no one will know when the Lord will return for the saints, and we shouldnt try to predict when that will occur.
However I would counter that familiarizing yourself with end-times prophecy, and keeping an eye on current world events from that perspective, is not the same as trying to predict the return of Christ.

 Prophecy
Scripture quotes may be a part of prophecy but the gift of prophecy should not be confused with the natural ability some people have to remember and quote Scripture.

Fulfilled prophecy is strong evidence that God is the author of the Bible because when you look at the mathematical odds of prophecy being fulfilled, you quickly see a design, a purpose, and a guiding hand behind the Bible.
