Racism and prophecy

When we think of prophecy, two factors are prominent: forecast of an event, and the happening itself. In many ways we focus our attention on the latter.

It's natural to emphasize, for example, the actual coming of Christ Jesus. But, certainly, the prophecy of his coming is a significant factor in the Bible. Divine Science is the Comforter promised by Jesus. Science is here, now, being demonstrated. The original prophecy of its coming, nevertheless, is of immense importance. Events prophesied in the Bible ultimately win the interest, the joy, and the admiration of spiritually perceptive individuals.

Suppose we could step back into early Bible times. We would undoubtedly take a strong interest in events, attitudes, and circumstances surrounding major prophecies. But of course we would find many contemporaries of the Old Testament prophets holding little appreciation for them. Relatively few people were discerning enough to recognize the implications of what spiritually-minded seers were trying to convey.
