In these devotions we are asking and answering the question: Whatâ€™s aÂ Christian to do in these days and timesâ€”these last days and perilousÂ times. Having introduced these devotions yesterday, we will address inÂ todayâ€™s devotion the importance of understanding prophecy in order for usÂ to know what we ought to do.
At Time For Truth Ministries and New Hope Baptist Church, we emphasizeÂ the subject of prophecy in our preaching, teaching and writing. We do soÂ because we feel it is critical to our understanding of the times in which weÂ live, as well as to us knowing exactly what it is that we should be doing. InÂ 1 Chronicles 12:32, we are told about â€œthe children of Issachar” who “wereÂ men [who] had understanding of the times” and therefore knew what theyÂ “ought to do.â€ Like the children of Issachar, you and I must understand theÂ times if we are to know what we ought to do.
In an effort to help others understand Bible prophecy, I’ve written a bookÂ entitled: The Rubik’s Cube of Bible Prophecy. This book lays a foundationÂ to familiarize the reader with the fundamentals of Bible prophecy. TheÂ understanding of these fundamentals are essential to a properÂ understanding of Bible prophecy itself. The book asks and answers suchÂ important questions as:
- Why should we study Bible prophecy?
- How should we interpret Bible prophecy?
- How did we end up with so many convoluted and contradictory schools of thought?
- How should we define the prominent terms employed today in the study of this most pertinent topic?
You can purchase a copy of this book from our church office or at our churchâ€™s welcome center on Sundays.
