The prophet Daniel was told to seal up certain prophecies until the time of the end. And during those end times, he told us, knowledge would be increased.
In the midst of these scary and tragic times, it’s encouraging to see how God is moving. It’s also exciting to see how He’s giving understanding to those who seek the truth.
I needed to look up something recently, and searched for it in the archives (“pages”) of this blog. While doing so, a couple things struck me:
1) the depth and detail of what I wrote there is just too much. It’s tedious. I’ve really got to do it differently in the future.
2) in many ways, my understanding has matured past where it was when I wrote the Revelation overview; about the throne room; and about the seals and trumpets.
There are a few specific items I now believe I was off-track on. I will probably explore them in the future…so if it seems my posts contradict something I said in the archives, that’s why.
In the past I quit reading books others have written about eschatology because the authors struck me as so sloppy/lazy/just plain wrong it just annoyed me too much to continue. That goes for listening to teaching on the subject or watching movies about it, etc (the exception being Chuck Missler–I didn’t always agree with him either, but I could still learn from him). But after attending the Orlando Prophecy Conference earlier in 2014, I began chasing down the previous work of some who spoke there. That led me to other folks, and I’m still chasing down detours and rabbit trails as a result.
My own passion for the Word has reignited as my eyes have been opened to new possibilities. There are some folks who I believe are barking up the wrong tree…yet even some of them have made breakthroughs of understanding in some areas.
The very fact that understanding is being apportioned and spread out across the body of Christ means no one human being can take the credit for the explosion of prophetic knowledge. And rightly so.
