We live in momentous days in which the world stands on the threshold of tremendous global events. According to the Bible, which is the Word of God, their magnitude will be colossal because God Himself will terminate this present age. Divine judgment will cause the physical world to be literally shaken to its core and drastically altered. As in this day, the lives and destinies of the people on the earth at the time will be determined by their attitude to the God of the Universe.
There has never been a day like the present in which prophecy as revealed in the Word of God is so relevant and important. The believer in Christ senses that very soon it will be part of history. The diligent student of the Bible may well ask the question, “Where do I begin the study of prophecy?”

It will be deeply involved in the events of end times and will be at the forefront of global persecution in those terrible days.
Messiah – The Hope of Israel is a verse by verse study of the book.
