About the time of the end,
a body of men will be raised up
who will turn their attention to the prophecies,
and insist upon their literal interpretation,
in the midst of much clamour and opposition.
This quote was sent as an encouragement to me, a confirmation of the direction of my Biblical interpretation. Sunday night I shared it with our Issachar Forum: A Prophetic Think Tank group in Wake Forest, NC. I told everyone there that it applies to them also. You who are regularly reading my Elisha Vision Commentary are also in the loop. We are all seeing the literal fulfillment of Bible prophecy on a daily basis.
A common practice among prophecy buffs is to try to “pigeon-hole” other teachers’ theological positions. I resist such forced identity, but can now give a definitive description of mine, even if slightly tongue in cheek.
I am an histori-futuri-literalist. I believe much prophecy has been fulfilled, much remains to be fulfilled soon, and I take the Bible literally. If you are not familiar with that category, it is because I made it up. It is sort of like a favorite quote from David Wilkerson when asked what he believed about the rapture and tribulation: I believe in the “you can’t lose” tribulation, because if you are with Jesus, you can’t lose!
I subscribe to the counsel: If you can possible take a Bible verse literally, do so. Earl Waterman, Dalton Mountain, New Hampshire.
So, as we continue on this exhilarating path to the Messiah’s arrival, we do so with open eyes, open minds, and open Bibles.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
