We do not question that holy men moved by the Holy Spirit have foretold things that were to come to pass, which could not have been foreseen by the natural wisdom of men. But too much of importance has been attached to the purely predictive element of prophecy.

We do not read the lesson that we are the creatures of his all-wise and gracious purpose, the objects of his redeeming love and providential care. – Wilbur O. Allen in The Book of Revelation: A Christian Philosophy
