The Bible is the source of understanding current events, not the other way around
Dr. Jimmy DeYoung explains how one should gain one's view of Bible prophecy starting with the scriptures themselves - not from what is happening in the world today. Only when one understands the God's prophetic Word, can one truly understand what is happening in global politics, religion, economics, and society.
Some may look at current events and then try to cobble together an eschatology based on today's circumstances. Those circumstances are always changing. God's Word never changes. God is the only source of true prophecy, and He has revealed His plan for and knowledge of the future through His Word.
