Why Study Prophecy?
Since you will be making decisions today that will affect tomorrow, you must know today what will happen tomorrow.
Everyone has a worldview, how we see and understand the events in our world today. Therefore we must have a prophetic-Biblical worldview to understand why our world is acting as it is today.
Since one-fourth of the Bible is prophecy, we must know how to study and understand prophecy.
- It is profitable. It comprises at least 25% of scripture.
