Beginning with the assumption that we can understand prophecy, or God would not have put it in the Bible, author and prophecy expert Tim LaHaye shows how every believer can understand biblical prophecy, particularly those prophecies pertaining to the end times. But, you may be asking, why is it so important to understand the end times prophecies in books like Daniel and Revelation? Aren't they confusing at best? To answer those objections, LaHaye offers six reasons why Christians should study and understand prophecy. They are as follows: One, hermeneutics--almost one third of the Bible consists of prophecy or prophetic utterances; Two, prophecy helps us understand who Christ really is--by combining prophetic descriptions of the reigning Christ with the gospel accounts of the suffering servant, we see a fuller picture; Three, understanding prophecy can help believers fight against cults and other false teachers; Four, prophecy, particularly prophecy about the imminent return of Jesus, is an effective motivator for evangelistic outreaches; Five, prophecy often leads the believer to greater purity and holiness; Six, prophecy offers confident hope at a time when so many feel or are hopeless.
