We have to take God’s word for what it says, the things we like and the things we don’t like. Before we go deeper into these verses, let’s briefly challenge all of us who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ.
Why do we study the prophetic scripture? Why do we long to hear from Scripture what God has prepared for those whom he loves? Do we want knowledge to prepare, or do we want insight so we can impress others? Do we study the prophetic word because we want to be in the know, or do we study it because we don’t want to be caught off guard when the things start to unfold?
