1st Prophecy in the Bible

What IS the first prophecy in the Bible????? You may be surprised to find out the first and second prophecies in the Bible are BOTH about the 1st & 2nd coming of Jesus Christ - respectively. Though, technically, the first one is NOT a prophecy, since it was spoken by God...a prophecy is something revealed to a man BY God, the prophet then relays God's word to the people.

#1 (First coming):
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel." At the time God punished Adam, Eve, and the serpent (v.14), He predicted that the Savior of the world would be human.

#2 (Second coming - Armageddon):
According to Jude 1:14-15, the next prophecy in the Bible would have been by Enoch (7th generation from Adam - Gen. 5:21-24) and was regarding Jesus' 2nd coming!!!!!!!!

Jude 1:14-15 It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, "Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."

Bible Fact: Enoch was one of two men taken to heaven without dying (Gen. 5:24). The other was Elijah (2 Kings 2:11).

Bible Fact:
Jude was son of Mary & Joseph......i.e. Jesus' half-brother. He identifies himself as the brother of James (v. 1), the leader of the Jerusalem church (Acts 15). Jude is also listed among Christ's half brothers in Matthew 13:55 and Mark 6:3.

This and MUCH more I am learning now in Dr. Chuck Missler's Learn the Bible in 24 Hours. It's an amazing study. One can buy the CD or MP3 download. For FREE you can also read or listen to it. I highly recommend all of Dr. Missler's information packets. He brings Jewish insight and information to Bible teaching which REALLY opens up the ENTIRE Bible to you! Listen to just one of his teachings online for free and you will agree.
