Bible Verses About The Future

The Bible has a lot to say about the future, and your future. When we read God's word about the future, we can gain hope and comfort, as well as knowledge and guidance about what we can do about it.

When Discouraged About The Future

Have you ever felt discouraged when you think about the future?

You are not alone. Some people feel that way about the future, including Job as he experienced all kinds of pain and suffering that one could ever had. He said in the bible verse below:

My days are past. My plans are broken off, as are the thoughts of my heart. (Job 17:11)

Even though he felt so discouraged and could not see his plans for his future, he still had faith in God. Job still placed his hope in God for the future.

But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. (Job 19:25)

Through this blog post, my prayer and hope is that you can find comfort and hope in God for your future.

Here are the bible verses about the future.

God And Eternity

All our earthly things will not last forever. The bible has the following verses that talk about what can last forever in the future.

God Placed Eternity In Our Hearts

We care and think about the future, not just because of the news or world events, but also because God has set eternity (forever) in our hearts.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their hearts, yet so that man can’t find out the work that God has done from the beginning even to the end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

What Is Eternal Life

God gives eternal life to all whom he has given to Jesus. 

1 Jesus said these things, then lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may also glorify you; 2 even as you gave him authority over all flesh, so he will give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 This is eternal life, that they should know you, the only true God, and him whom you sent, Jesus Christ. (John 17:1–3)

The testimony is this: that God gave to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. (1 John 5:11)

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. (1 John 5:13)

We know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. (1 John 5:20)

God's Word Lasts Forever

O LORD, your word is settled in heaven forever. (Psalm 119:89)

I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commands are boundless. (Psalm 119:96)

Your testimonies are righteous forever. Give me understanding, that I may live. (Psalm 119:144)

I know that his commandment is eternal life. The things therefore which I speak, even as the Father has said to me, so I speak.” (John 12:50)

The Everlasting God And His Eternal Ways

He stood, and shook the earth. He looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains were crumbled. The age-old hills collapsed. His ways are eternal. (Habakkuk 3:6)

All of God’s works are known to him from eternity. (Acts 15:18)

For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. (1 Timothy 1:17)

Haven’t you known? Haven’t you heard? The everlasting God, The LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t faint. He isn’t weary. His understanding is unsearchable. (Isaiah 40:28)

For the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, says: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite. (Isaiah 57:15)

God’s Everlasting Covenant

Despite us not knowing a lot about the future beside what is revealed in the bible, we can take heart that God has made an everlasting promise (covenant) with man that he will never destroy every living creature with a flood again.

God said, “This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: (Genesis 9:12)

13 I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud, 15 I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Genesis 9:13–15)

The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.’ (Genesis 9:16)

God’s Righteousness Is Forever

Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness. Your law is truth. (Psalm 119:142)

God’s Love Is Greater Than The Future

38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from God’s love which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38–39)

Jesus' Throne Lasts Forever

Jesus is the Alpha (the beginning) and the Omega (the end). Jesus' reign on his throne will be forever. 

 8 But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your Kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated iniquity; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.” 10 And, “You, Lord, in the beginning, laid the foundation of the earth. The heavens are the works of your hands. 11 They will perish, but you continue. They all will grow old like a garment does. 12 You will roll them up like a mantle, and they will be changed; but you are the same. Your years won’t fail.” 13 But which of the angels has he told at any time, “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet?” 14 Aren’t they all serving spirits, sent out to do service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:8-14)

21 make you complete in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:21)

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)

All Will Bow To God In Future

28 For the kingdom is The LORD’s. He is the ruler over the nations. 29 All the rich ones of the earth shall eat and worship. All those who go down to the dust shall bow before him, even he who can’t keep his soul alive. 30 Posterity shall serve him. Future generations shall be told about the Lord. 31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness to a people that shall be born, for he has done it. (Psalm 22:28–31)

I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off. 6 Also the foreigners who join themselves to The LORD to serve him, and to love The LORD’s name, to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and holds fast my covenant, 7 I will bring these to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer.

He will not fail you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which he swore to them. 32 For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that God created man on the earth, and from the one end of the sky to the other, whether there has been anything as great as this thing is, or has been heard like it? 33 Did a people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the middle of the fire, as you have heard, and live? 34 Or has God tried to go and take a nation for himself from among another nation, by trials, by signs, by wonders, by war, by a mighty hand, by an outstretched arm, and by great terrors, according to all that The LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? 35 It was shown to you so that you might know that The LORD is God. There is no one else besides him. 36 Out of heaven he made you to hear his voice, that he might instruct you. On earth he made you to see his great fire; and you heard his words out of the middle of the fire. 37 Because he loved your fathers, therefore he chose their offspring after them, and brought you out with his presence, with his great power, out of Egypt; 38 to drive out nations from before you greater and mightier than you, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is today. 39 Know therefore today, and take it to heart, that The LORD himself is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath. There is no one else. 40 You shall keep his statutes and his commandments which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which The LORD your God gives you for all time. (Deuteronomy 4:30–40)

Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28:17–20)

25 Behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the law? How do you read it?” 27 He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 He said to him, “You have answered correctly. Do this, and you will live.” (Luke 10:25–28)

32 If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let’s eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” 33 Don’t be deceived! “Evil companionships corrupt good morals.” 34 Wake up righteously and don’t sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame. (1 Corinthians 15:32–34)

8. Give Praise And Give Thanks To God 

11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me. You have removed my sackcloth, and clothed me with gladness, 12 to the end that my heart may sing praise to you, and not be silent. The LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever! (Psalm 30:11–12)

For The LORD of Armies has planned, and who can stop it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?” (Isaiah 14:27)

9 Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like me. 10 I declare the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done. I say: My counsel will stand, and I will do all that I please. 11 I call a ravenous bird from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country. Yes, I have spoken. I will also bring it to pass. I have planned. I will also do it. (Isaiah 46:9-11)

27 For The LORD says, “The whole land will be a desolation; yet I will not make a full end. 28 For this the earth will mourn, and the heavens above be black, because I have spoken it. I have planned it, and I have not repented, neither will I turn back from it.” (Jeremiah 4:27–28)

(Ephesians 2:4–10)

8 To me, the very least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9 and to make all men see what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, who created all things through Jesus Christ, 10 to the intent that now through the assembly the manifold wisdom of God might be made known to the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places, 11 according to the eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Ephesians 3:8–11)

God Knows People's Plans In The Future

The Lord Almighty is able to know everything, including plans of man that are not yet made in the future. As such, we can derive comfort, that God is never taken by surprise by any event. Thus, we can ask God to help us when people are planning against us.

‘The Lord The LORD says: “It will happen in that day that things will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil plan. (Ezekiel 38:10)

You have seen all their vengeance and all their plans against me. (Lamentations 3:60)

God's Future Plan Will Always Prevail

There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against The LORD. (Proverbs 21:30)

11 “Now therefore, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, ‘The LORD says: “Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a plan against you. Everyone return from his evil way now, and amend your ways and your doings.” ’ 12 But they say, ‘It is in vain; for we will walk after our own plans, and we will each follow the stubbornness of his evil heart.’ ” 13 Therefore The LORD says: “Ask now among the nations, ‘Who has heard such things?’ The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing. 14 Will the snow of Lebanon fail from the rock of the field? Will the cold waters that flow down from afar be dried up? 15 For my people have forgotten me. They have burned incense to false gods. They have been made to stumble in their ways in the ancient paths, to walk in byways, in a way not built up, 16 to make their land an astonishment, and a perpetual hissing. Everyone who passes by it will be astonished, and shake his head. 17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy. I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity. 18 Then they said, “Come! Let’s devise plans against Jeremiah; for the law won’t perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let’s strike him with the tongue, and let’s not give heed to any of his words.” (Jeremiah 18:11–18)

The land of Judah will become a terror to Egypt. Everyone to whom mention is made of it will be afraid, because of the plans of The LORD of Armies, which he determines against it. (Isaiah 19:17)

The LORD has done that which he planned. He has fulfilled his word that he commanded in the days of old. He has thrown down, and has not pitied. He has caused the enemy to rejoice over you. He has exalted the horn of your adversaries. (Lamentations 2:17)

26 Again The LORD’s word came to me, saying, 27 “Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, ‘The vision that he sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of times that are far off.’ 28 “Therefore tell them, ‘The Lord The LORD says: “None of my words will be deferred any more, but the word which I speak will be performed,” says the LORD, God. ’ ” (Ezekiel 12:26–28)

5 For he didn’t subject the world to come, of which we speak, to angels. 6 But one has somewhere testified, saying, “What is man, that you think of him? Or the son of man, that you care for him? 7 You made him a little lower than the angels. You crowned him with glory and honor. 8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that he subjected all things to him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we don’t yet see all things subjected to him. 9 But we see him who has been made a little lower than the angels, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that by the grace of God he should taste of death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:5–9)

17 For God has put in their hearts to do what he has in mind, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God should be accomplished. 18 The woman whom you saw is the great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:17–18)

Then I said, “My lord, what will be the outcome of these things?” 9 He said, “Go your way, Daniel; for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined, but the wicked will do wickedly; and none of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey. Her mouth is smoother than oil, 4 but in the end she is as bitter as wormwood, and as sharp as a two-edged sword. 5 Her feet go down to death.

They beat me, and I don’t feel it! When will I wake up? I can do it again. I will look for more.” (Proverbs 23:31–35)

She has no comforter. “See, The LORD, my affliction; for the enemy has magnified himself.” (Lamentations 1:8–9)

You have laid up your treasure in the last days. 4 Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you have kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of those who reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of Armies.5 You have lived in luxury on the earth, and taken your pleasure. You have nourished your hearts as in a day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and you have murdered the righteous one. He doesn’t resist you. (James 5:1-6)

Then I opened my mouth, and spoke and said to him who stood before me, “My lord, by reason of the vision my sorrows have overtaken me, and I retain no strength. 17 For how can the servant of my lord talk with my lord? For as for me, immediately there remained no strength in me. There was no breath left in me.” (Additions to Daniel 10:13–17)

God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds. 3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, who, when he had by himself purified us of our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much better than the angels as the more excellent name he has inherited is better than theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did he say at any time, “You are my Son. Today I have become your father?” and again, “I will be to him a Father, and he will be to me a Son?” 6 When he again brings in the firstborn into the world he says, “Let all the angels of God worship him.” 7 Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his servants a flame of fire.” (Hebrews 1:1-7)

Here are some Old Testament bible verses when God provided visions to his prophets about the future. 

There are many other prophets in the old Testament that God provided them with a message about the future that are not mentioned here.

27 Daniel answered before the king, and said, “The secret which the king has demanded can’t be shown to the king by wise men, enchanters, magicians, or soothsayers; 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream, and the visions of your head on your bed, are these: (Additions to Daniel 2:27–28)

“The vision of the evenings and mornings which has been told is true; but seal up the vision, for it belongs to many days to come.” (Daniel 8:26)

Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision is yet for many days (Daniel 10:14)

2 The LORD answered me, “Write the vision, and make it plain on tablets, that he who runs may read it. 3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hurries toward the end, and won’t prove false. Though it takes time, wait for it, because it will surely come. It won’t delay. 4 Behold, his soul is puffed up. It is not upright in him, but the righteous will live by his faith. 5 Yes, moreover, wine is treacherous: an arrogant man who doesn’t stay at home, who enlarges his desire as Sheol; he is like death and can’t be satisfied, but gathers to himself all nations and heaps to himself all peoples. (Habakkuk 2:2–5)

The Holy Spirit's Role in Revealing The Future

In this bible verse, Jesus told his disciples that when the Holy Spirit comes (after Jesus' resurrection and ascending into heaven), the Holy Spirit will guide them in place of Jesus. 

The other bible verses reveal how God's Holy Spirit can bring revelation to God's people in the last days.

However, when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak from himself; but whatever he hears, he will speak. He will declare to you things that are coming. (John 16:13)

It will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. (Acts 2:17)

Yes, and on my servants and on my handmaidens in those days, I will pour out my Spirit, and they will prophesy. (Acts 2:18)

1 For this cause I, Paul, am the prisoner of Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles, 2 if it is so that you have heard of the administration of that grace of God which was given me toward you, 3 how that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before in few words, 4 by which, when you read, you can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ, 5 which in other generations was not made known to the children of men, as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit, 6 that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of his promise in Christ Jesus through the Good News, 7 of which I was made a servant according to the gift of that grace of God which was given me according to the working of his power. (Ephesians 3:1–7)

Divination Is An Abomination To God

If you are curious about the future of the world, I encourage you to read the bible to find out more. But if you are curious about your own future, I encourage you to talk to God about it and ask Him to guide you and reveal it to you in His time. I also encourage you to read the above verses about Hope for the Future and Comfort For The Future, so that you can put your trust in God and hope in his goodness for your future.

God has warned his people against divination, or fortune telling, as it is an abomination to God. Please avoid divination of all kinds. Divination includes things like: astrology, zodiac readings, palm reading, face features reading, tarot, fortune telling, crystal ball fortune telling, magic 8, ouija boards, etc. 

God also warned people that there can be false prophets who give false visions to people as well.

There shall not be found with you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who tells fortunes, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer, (Deuteronomy 18:10)

For these nations that you shall dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery and to diviners; but as for you, The LORD your God has not allowed you so to do. (Deuteronomy 18:14)

13 Yet The LORD testified to Israel and to Judah, by every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.” 14 Notwithstanding, they would not listen, but hardened their neck like the neck of their fathers who didn’t believe in The LORD their God. 15 They rejected his statutes and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified to them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and followed the nations that were around them, concerning whom The LORD had commanded them that they should not do like them. 16 They abandoned all the commandments of The LORD their God, and made molten images for themselves, even two calves, and made an Asherah, and worshiped all the army of the sky, and served Baal. 17 They caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do that which was evil in The LORD’s sight, to provoke him to anger. 18 Therefore The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight. There was none left but the tribe of Judah only. (2 Kings 17:13–18)

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Hephzibah. 2 He did that which was evil in The LORD’s sight, after the abominations of the nations whom The LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he raised up altars for Baal, and made an Asherah, as Ahab king of Israel did, and worshiped all the army of the sky, and served them. 4 He built altars in The LORD’s house, of which The LORD said, “I will put my name in Jerusalem.” 5 He built altars for all the army of the sky in the two courts of The LORD’s house. 6 He made his son to pass through the fire, practiced sorcery, used enchantments, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits and with wizards. He did much evil in The LORD’s sight, to provoke him to anger. (2 Kings 21:1–6)

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. 2 He did that which was evil in The LORD’s sight, after the abominations of the nations whom The LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down; and he raised up altars for the Baals, made Asheroth, and worshiped all the army of the sky, and served them. 4 He built altars in The LORD’s house, of which The LORD said, “My name shall be in Jerusalem forever.” 5 He built altars for all the army of the sky in the two courts of The LORD’s house. 6 He also made his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom. He practiced sorcery, divination, and witchcraft, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits and with wizards. He did much evil in The LORD’s sight, to provoke him to anger. 7 He set the engraved image of the idol, which he had made, in God’s house, of which God said to David and to Solomon his son, “In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name forever. (2 Chronicles 33:1–7)

For there will be no more any false vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 12:24)

They have seen falsehood and lying divination, who say, ‘The LORD says;’ but The LORD has not sent them. They have made men to hope that the word would be confirmed. (Ezekiel 13:6)

Haven’t you seen a false vision, and haven’t you spoken a lying divination, in that you say, ‘The LORD says;’ but I have not spoken?” (Ezekiel 13:7)

“My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and who utter lying divinations. They will not be in the council of my people, neither will they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither will they enter into the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord The LORD.” (Ezekiel 13:9)

Therefore you shall no more see false visions nor practice divination. I will deliver my people out of your hand. Then you will know that I am The LORD.’ ” (Ezekiel 13:23)

For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination. He shook the arrows back and forth. He consulted the teraphim. He looked in the liver. (Ezekiel 21:21)

My people consult with their wooden idol, and answer to a stick of wood. Indeed the spirit of prostitution has led them astray, and they have been unfaithful to their God. (Hosea 4:12)

For the teraphim have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie; and they have told false dreams. They comfort in vain. Therefore they go their way like sheep. They are oppressed, because there is no shepherd. (Zechariah 10:2)

16 As we were going to prayer, a certain girl having a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much gain by fortune telling. 17 Following Paul and us, she cried out, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us a way of salvation!18 She was doing this for many days. But Paul, becoming greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!” It came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that the hope of their gain was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the rulers. 20 When they had brought them to the magistrates, they said, “These men, being Jews, are agitating our city 21 and advocate customs which it is not lawful for us to accept or to observe, being Romans.” (Acts 16:16–21)

Here is a prayer to God about the future that you are welcome to follow together or to pray on your own, you can just tell God your worries about your future, your hopes for the future, and to tell him how you would like his help for the future.
