I start this project with mixed emotions. I am excited yet I am fearful. I am excited to start a new adventure with God. I am fearful that I am not smart enough to understand all there is to understand about end-time events. I have not felt that I wanted to write about prophecy. I have avoided this subject in my walk with God. I do believe that we are in the end times, but we have been in the end times for two thousand years. I feel that too many people write about this subject just because it sells books and it makes them popular. Just like my call to the ministry, I have told God that He was making a mistake wanting me to write on this subject. God and I have had many discussions about this project. As always, God won the discussion. Please pray for us as I start this project that I will write what God wants me to write. That God will use this project to draw others closer to Him.
Starting with any Bible Study we need to look at the history of what is happening when these scriptures were written. In this Bible Study we need to look at the Sovereignty of God. We need to know and believe in the Sovereignty of God so that we will know that this prophecy is true. We need to look at the history of Israel. We need the Hope of the Resurrection. “And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13) In this world that we live in, we need hope more than anything else. Our only hope is in God. Fasten your seat belts and get ready to go on an adventure with God.
