Prophecy Is Important

Prophecy Is Important

Pastor Dan Davidson


In v. 14 of our text, it is clear that Jesus wants us to read and understand the prophecies of Scripture. Regarding the prophecy of Daniel, Jesus says “Let him that readeth understand” (v. 14) Jesus goes on to say, “take ye heed . . . I have foretold you all things” (v. 23) Why is this so important? When we understand the events surrounding the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ, we live with eternity in mind, rather than living for the “nasty now and now.” This explains our Lord’s repeated exhortations in this discourse: “Take Heed,” (vv. 5, 9, 22, 33) and “Watch!” (vv. 33, 35, 37). Many believers are not taking heed to these signs and they are not watching for the next prophesied event: The rapture of the saints. Are you ready? Are you watching?
