H64 The Purpose and Promise of Prophey
The subject of prophecy occupies more of the Bible than any other subject. The Gospel itself is prophetic, for it proclaims the intention of God to intervene in world affairs, and to establish His reign upon the earth. In its simplest form the Gospel is expressed in the statement: “In thee shall all nations be blessed” (Galatians 3:8). It is testified by the prophet that “the Lord God will surely do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). This revelation is made that His people’s faith may be confirmed and enlarged, and that in every generation they may know the times and seasons to which they stand related. Knowing the signs, they are enabled to discern the times; and while consternation and dismay cause men’s hearts to fail they are courageous, and rejoice in perceiving the approach of the Kingdom of God. This is the proper use of the prophetic word.
