Why Study End-Time Prophecy?

Why Study End Time Prophecy?

There are some significant issues related to end time prophecy  – both positive and negative. Here are some such issues that will illustrate the point:

Issues that may not be appropriate reasons to study prophecy:

  • Idle curiosity: Scripture is not written to satisfy our curiosity (Acts 17:21-23 & Is 55:5-11)
  • Test of fellowship: If a questionable doctrine must be accepted in order to belong .
  • Spiritual pride: Some act like “professional prophecy teachers” who claim to know everything about the future (2Pe 1:20,21)
  • Absolute symbols: Don’t look for a “concrete” definition of every symbol. Symbols in the Bible are intentionally vague so as to apply in varied situations and over a long period of time. (Symbolism in Revelation)
