My counter to this is prophecy itself. It seems futile to me to have this entire finished work with no way to decipher it. Through my studies I have determined that every single statement in scripture can be understood by applying other locations within. It's just understanding the connections that are the stepping stones, or making sure you don't in some cases. Scripture is clearly a path, with only one right answer, some take wrong turns very early, others down the way, but it seems scripture is written in a certain way that some in a certain time and place would allow scripture to explain itself, all the way down the path far enough to accomplish some work, or some responsibility. I'm not saying 100%, but far enough... Let's take a new look at Dan 12:3 for a sec; "And those having insight will shine as brightly as the expanse of heaven, and those bringing the many to righteousness like the stars, forever and ever." Can it not be said insight is a sliding scale, and not a light switch? I think we both agree on that, so.... Clearly the scripture says some will have insight in the time of the end, and what would that insight be about, the kingdom, spiritual matters, scripture? Well you and I know now Dan 12:3 isn't talking about the Watchtower, so it's people in the future end time right? And what do they do with this insight? Dan 11:33 "And those having insight among the people will impart understanding to the many." They will be able to impart understanding to the "many", spiritual Israel. Now if they are imparting understanding, doesn't that sound different then what Daniel was doing or Isaiah, Jeremiah (as you mention)? If they were only given nuggets, then those in the end are imparting understanding... Everything is in that book already, everything that will happen in the end to the completion of even the 1000 years. What need is there for new scrolls containing prophecy? The idea that new scrolls of prophecy or information is unfounded, the scrolls opened in Rev are the books of life and death, a metaphor for judgement. And the books being opened simply mean prophecy being fulfilled. Daniel and previous prophets only needed pieces, it didn't belong to them to know the days and times, but what about those having "insight" in the end? What is that insight and understanding they impart to others? Well, obviously something no one has ever had in the past, apparently nothing no one has had up until they start imparting it, so the question is, how do they come about it? Places like Amos, Dan, Zech with Joshua and Zerubabbel, Revelation, they all talk about individuals in the time of the end who have the responsibility to look over Jehovah's courtyard, and the Bible was written to them, these final ones who are to impart understanding. In the end if Jehovah did give us new scrolls, and told us all about what the Bible says and means with prophecy and chronology, does that mean everyone will understand it then? Do you think the events unfolding will suddenly give people understanding of what prophecy means and says and be able to point it out in scripture? No.... It would still be very few, and probably only those who were very close to it already, but they would still need time, they would still have to take years studying the steps to determine how the answer gets there. So it is my argument that the Bible is written the way it is because these concepts are very complex and takes individuals who are capable of understanding them many years to grasp, whether they are told the answer or not, they still have to determine how the answer is derived, and nothing anyone could say in the future will instantly give that knowledge to others, therefore a few would have had to already made that journey before the end, in order to be in a position to impart any kind of understanding of what is to come to the masses. It will be their jobs to impart that knowledge in the simplest form possible, IE ~ (E=MC2). A form that is small and compact that gives an understanding to all, but does nothing to show what steps it took to get there, because even if told, or prophecy fulfilled, very few would ever be able to follow all the steps in scripture to determine how that answer was derived. An example is the Watchtower coming down. When it happens, the event will have past, but will mankind be able to point to the scripture and say, "Ah, there it is, we should have known all along."? No.... You know why I argue against your view, right? Because I believe it's possible, and as well to have responsibilities during that time. What greater sacrifice could we make then to be part of those who will impart understanding to Gods people in the time of the end?
