Dr. Reagan: Why is Bible prophecy one of the most ignored aspects of God’s Word in the preaching and teaching programs of most churches? Can the ignoring of it really be justified? Stay tuned.
Dr. Reagan: Greetings in the name of Jesus, our Blessed Hope, and welcome to Christ in Prophecy. Once again this week I have my two colleagues with me in the studio, Nathan Jones and Tim Moore. Nathan, is an Associate Evangelist and he also serves as our Web Minister. Tim is also an Associate Evangelist who serves part-time by preaching and teaching at churches, and conferences on the weekends during his so called spare time. Now, during the week he serves as a pilot and pilot instructor for UPS. He also is serving in his 12th year in the Kentucky State Legislature. Now, folks, this is the second in a series of programs that we are doing in response to questions that viewers have sent to us. Last week we considered questions about the integrity of the Bible. You know is the Bible really the Word of God? This week we’re going to respond to general questions about Bible prophecy. But in the weeks to come we will be taking a look at very specific questions that relate to the signs of the times, the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Millennium and other things. Well, incidentally if you missed last week’s program you can find it on our website at lamblion.com; our programs are archived there and you can watch them on demand. Well, fellas our focus today is going to be Bible prophecy in general. And I want to jump into this by saying that the first question relates to a comment written in a very, very popular book by one of the best known names in all of Christendom. In his book he wrote off Bible prophecy as quote “A distraction that no one should spend time studying.” What is your viewpoint on this?
Tim Moore: That is a tragic perspective on Bible prophecy because the apostles themselves focused on prophecy as a demonstration of, again, the claim that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. You can’t pull up any of these sermons in Acts without understanding Bible prophecy and its citation, over and over again. Something that, Nathan pointed out last week.
Nathan Jones: I have an electronic Bible, can I borrow your paper Bible.
Tim Moore: Oh, certainly.
Nathan Jones: I’ll hold your spot there. Alright, Bible prophecy consists of a third of the Bible. Can you imagine ripping–and I’m not going to—ripping a third of the Bible out and just throwing it away? That’s what that pastor, or whoever that was, was saying is that well, let’s disregard a third of God’s Word. Now, the Bible was inspired and written by the Holy Spirit. So, what you’re really saying is forget what the Holy Spirit has to say, it’s now important. I don’t know about you but to me that almost verges on the heretical to even bring such a point up.
Tim Moore: Very sad.
Dr. Reagan: Why do you think so many pastors have that view that Bible prophecy is a distraction? Why do they have that view?
Nathan Jones: Well, I think for one it’s that dirty word, study. You know some pastors are great orators, they are great speakers, but it involves, you have to get in there and study it, and sometimes it’s hard. For Revelation for instance you have to know themes from the Old Testament to understand symbolism in the New. But, it’s also because they don’t see it as practical. It’s future. It’s something that’s out there, and right now I’ve got to deal with divorces in my church. And I’ve got to deal with all these family issues, and problems.
Dr. Reagan: I’ve heard that over, and over.
Nathan Jones: It’s just there is too much. And I’m sure we’ll get into there’s a reason why it is valid. But I think that’s why.
Dr. Reagan: Well, why is it?
Tim Moore: I think that some pastors will point to it is pie-in-the-sky, but really it is relevant here and now, because it gives us assurance that whatever we’re experiencing as Believers, as people living in a very fallen world, Jesus Christ is coming and all of these things will pale in comparison to the promises we’ve been given. And so, prophecy demonstrates that the very promises of God are trustworthy because He’s kept all of His other promises.
Dr. Reagan: Yes.
Tim Moore: And again it is fertile ground for those who are faithful students of Scripture.
Dr. Reagan: Well, I’ve had pastor, after pastor tell me what you said there, Nathan, and that is that, “David, you’re a traveling evangelist. I’m a located pastor and I’ve got to deal with the problems in my congregation of infidelity, and drug abuse, and alcohol abuse, and all these sort of things, and I need something relevant.” And the point I always make to them is if you can convince your congregation of two things: number one Jesus is really returning. Now, not here, but here. He’s really returning. And number two that is an event that could occur any moment. You will motivate them to holy living, and evangelism. What more could you ask for?
Tim Moore: Exactly
Dr. Reagan: And that is practical. That’s down to earth. That’s relevant.
Nathan Jones: The Apostle John agreed with you, 1 John 3, he said, “Beloved, now we are children of God and that has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed,” He returns “we shall be like Him. For we shall see Him as He is, and anyone who has this hope,” gives us hope, “in Him purifies Himself just as He is.”
Tim Moore: Holy living.
Nathan Jones: Holy living. It gives us hope. And it encourages us to know. Hey, when the mother and father are about to return the kids start behaving themselves, they know when He’s coming. But Jesus said, “I’m coming like a thief.” We don’t know when He’s coming, so we should always be living holy lives because the Father is coming home.
Tim Moore: Be ready. I had a pastor friend, and in good grace I understand he had things that he was trying to communicate to the congregation. He said, “We’ll eventually get around to prophecy.” I said, “When? I mean how many years?” And I point out to folks that when Paul planted a church in Thessalonica within a matter of weeks because that’s all the time he spent there, he had already revealed to them the promise of Jesus’ return. Which is why they wrote him letters trying to gain further understanding. And we thankfully have the books of 1 & 2 Thessalonians with Paul’s responses to their questions. But he didn’t wait years, and years to get to these topics. He talked to those folks right away, in spite of all the challenges he undoubtedly had in that culture.
Dr. Reagan: Well, I really appreciate the emphasis that both of you’ve given to hope. Because we live in world that is growing increasingly dark. And society is falling apart all over the world. People need hope. And when I talk to a Christian and I ask them: “What is your hope?” They’ll usually say, “Well, my hope is Heaven.” I say, “Okay, what does that mean?” And there is just total silence.
Nathan Jones: Yeah.
Dr. Reagan: Are you going to have a body? Are you going to be recognizable? Are you going to know people? Where is it going to be? Is it going to be in the clouds? Is it going to be on the earth? And they have no idea. But if you know Bible prophecy you know the answers to all those questions, and it gives you hope.
Nathan Jones: Uh-huh. You know where you’re going. I mean you don’t go on a trip without knowing what the destination is. Bible prophecy tells us what the destination is and how we’re going to get to it.
Dr. Reagan: And you know that when Jesus Christ returns this earth is going to be flooded with peace, righteousness, and justice, and they’ll be no war. It’s–you get so excited about this.
Nathan Jones: You’re looking it. Give him a rag.
Dr. Reagan: And yet people don’t know these things because they don’t hear anything about Bible prophecy.
Tim Moore: Well, so many of the old hymns pointed to prophetic passages, and even “The Blessed Assurance Jesus is Mine.” How can I have such assurance? Because I can witness fulfilled prophecy in the life of Jesus. Prophecies being fulfilled in our very day and age. You pointed out yesterday to me Dave, that somebody recently told you they wished they had lived in biblical times. We’re living in biblical times. The prophecies are being fulfilled all around us if we will just open our eyes to see.
Dr. Reagan: And that is a very good point because right now–you know the Bible says that when it is all over and done that the Jewish people will look back on their history and say, “The greatest miracle in our history was the deliverance from the four corners of the earth, and brought back. Even greater–it says they will consider it an even greater miracle then their deliverance from Egyptian captivity.” It’s going on right now, and the average Christian has no idea how important it is.
Tim Moore: Exactly right.
Nathan Jones: I had a mega pastor come up to me once when we reacquainted and he says, “Wow, you guys sure screwed up with that Harold Camping thing.” And I felt like he had just decked me. I actually physically went like that, because he equated us with those date setters; the people that the Bible says are false teachers.
Dr. Reagan: Well, I’m so glad you mentioned that because I believe that that is one of the major reasons that pastors keep Bible prophecy like that.
Nathan Jones: Yeah, we look like a Star Trek Convention to them all.
Dr. Reagan: Because they have identified it with sensationalism, and they don’t want to get involved in sensationalism. From the beginning of this ministry one of the things we have tried to avoid is getting involved in sensationalism. In fact I’ve had people actually write me–I had another Bible prophecy teacher write me one time an e-mail that said, “You know Dave, your ministry is really sort of boring. All you do is talk about what the Bible says about the end times.”
Tim Moore: That’s boring?
Dr. Reagan: When are you going to talk about something exciting? I thought what?
Nathan Jones: A 200 million manned army coming out of the earth and destroying it, is not exciting?
Tim Moore: I think the Bible is exciting in itself.
Dr. Reagan: But there is a lot of sensationalism in the field of Bible prophecy. There are times when I’m embarrassed to be a Bible prophecy teacher because of all the nonsense that goes on. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. I think another reason pastors are scared of Bible prophecy is because a lot of Bible prophecy teachers tend to be very dogmatic. And they come in and they simply say, “Okay, here’s what it says. Here’s what I know it means. And you can take it or leave it. And if going to agree with me you’re going straight to Hell.”
Tim Moore: Yes.
Dr. Reagan: Well, you know you don’t have to do that. All you have to do is come in and say, “Well, here is what I think the Bible teaches. And I hope you’ll get in there and study it yourself and find out.
Nathan Jones: Right. There’s sensationalist teachers in Bible prophecy, sure. But there are sensationalist teachers in family planning, in all sorts of other different ministries and we don’t drop them.
Tim Moore: In any evangelical effort. Exactly right. Satan, loves when we are distracted. And when the world is distracted by those who are discrediting to the very Word of God. And that is something we purpose never to be in this ministry but to declare that which Jesus declared. Like we said last week even the book of Revelation is Jesus unveiling of His plan for the end times, and we just proclaim that message.
Dr. Reagan: Okay, well let’s go to another question. And this question relates to not only to pastors but Christians in general. I just find people love to write off Bible prophecy a certain way. They’ll say– I’ll say, “What is your end time belief about Bible prophecy?” And they’ll say, “Well, I tell you what I’m neither Pre-Mill or Post-Mill or A-mill, I’m a Pan-Millennialist because I believe it’s all going to pan out in the end.” I’ve heard that so many times.
Nathan Jones: I just heard that this month. This month I heard a pastor. And the crowd went wild. They’re like, yeah.
Dr. Reagan: Yeah. Yeah. And I want to say to a pastor who says that to me you have just admitted you are too lazy to study.
Tim Moore: Exactly, or that you do not care. And we should have a hungering for the Word of God, and the things that He has revealed it is for the purpose of informing us. And so if God has taken the time to reveal it to us, why would we want to stay ignorant or willfully unaware of what He wants us to understand?
Dr. Reagan: Right. Well, it’s a sad situation that people have that attitude. But I think also one of the problems is that to really understand Bible prophecy you’ve got to get into the Old Testament. You’ve got to study it. And people just don’t want to do that.
Nathan Jones: Right. And it’s a shame too because what it is robbing you of is it is robbing you of the 30,000 foot view, where you get to see all of God’s plan from the way God sees it. Instead we are trapped in the minutia and in the minutia of life. And when you don’t have the 30,000 foot plan, you are like spinning your wheels you don’t know where you’re going.
Dr. Reagan: That’s a good point because people often–we know this from the questions–people get so concerned with minutia and they don’t get the big picture. Well, I’ve just got to, I can’t sleep because I’ve got to find out who this 144,000 is. Or do I have the mark of the beast because I’ve got a credit card that says 666? You know whatever. And very few people seem to get the overall view which is so important.
Tim Moore: It is so important. And it also goes back to what is your passion? I had a young man one time ask me: “How do you remember all these things?” And I asked him: “What is your favorite ball team?” And I said: “What is their statistic this year and going back?” Well, he could cite chapter and verse of every player, every statistic, and that was his passion.
Dr. Reagan: Because that is what he’s passionate about.
Tim Moore: And I said, “I don’t know any of those things. But I have a hunger for the Word of God.” And I wasn’t trying to condemn him, but I gave him a challenge. If your hunger is for understanding what God has clearly revealed then you will gain understanding as you study His Word. And he went away encouraged.
Dr. Reagan: Well, you know one of the reasons for studying Bible prophecy in detail is it validates not only the Bible is the Word of God, which we discussed last week, but it validates Jesus as the Son of God.
Tim Moore: Yes, absolutely.
Dr. Reagan: And give us an example of that, Nathan that Bible prophecy validates Jesus, as the Son of God through fulfilled prophecies. Give us the example from Stoner.
Nathan Jones: The Peter Stoner one, yes, well, there are 300 general prophecies, 109 distinct prophecies, like He would be born in Bethlehem. He would come from Egypt.
Dr. Reagan: Have His hands and feet pierced.
Nathan Jones: Yeah, the crucifixion 700 years it was prophesied before it happened. And Jesus fulfilled all 109 prophecies. Now, Peter Stoner a mathematician he said, well, let’s just take 8 of these prophecies. And he figured mathematically that the chances of all 8 fulfilled in the life of one man is 1 in 10 to the 17th that is a 1 with 17 zeroes behind it. Statistically impossible, but not with God.
Dr. Reagan: Give us an example of what that means 1 in 10 to the 17th power.
Nathan Jones: 1 in 10, what does that mean? That means I have to draw a lot of zeroes.
Dr. Reagan: Give us an illustration.
Tim Moore: That is where you should take a quarter, paint it red, and bury it in a sea of quarters in the state of Texas, waist deep.
Nathan Jones: Two feet deep.
Tim Moore: Yeah, and bulldoze them around for a few years, and then go out and at random pick one quarter, and the odds of finding that one quarter out of that sea of quarters. It’s impossible. You know here’s the other final word, Jesus Himself again in Revelation it tells us that the spirit–excuse me the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. All prophecy in the end points to Jesus Christ, points to His role, not only in being the Messiah, but in returning, it all points to Him. And that’s why we have a passion for studying it.
Dr. Reagan: Welcome back to Christ in Prophecy and our discussion of questions related to Bible prophecy in general. Well, fellas the first question I want to get to is one that relates to end time viewpoints. I grew up in a church that taught that Jesus would never put His foot on this earth again, it is called Amillennialism. Today it seems like every time I tune in I’m hearing somebody talk about, well, Jesus is not going to come back until the church takes over the world and reigns for a 1,000 years, and then Jesus will come. And then there’s all kinds of viewpoints. Why are there so many different viewpoints about end time Bible prophecy?
Tim Moore: Well, I think that sometimes people have preconceived ideas even when they come to Scripture. And we need to set those aside. There are some who believe in the lifting up of man, and so they think, well man is in the church and so we will be able to aspire to deliver over the world to the Lord when He returns in some spiritual sense. But, we need to put all of our perceived notions aside when we turn to Scripture and just see what the Lord has to say about the end times.
Dr. Reagan: Okay.
Nathan Jones: I hear pastors say that sometimes, they say, well I don’t want to study Bible prophecy because there are just too many views, and if there are some many views it must discount the fact that it’s true. But isn’t there too many views about everything? I mean all you have to do is get on Facebook for an hour and you’re like there are too many views about everything. I think you’re right, Tim, we come at it with preconceived notions, or we haven’t studied through it. I like to call it symbolically; people have a terrible sickness called symbolically where they don’t interpret the Bible as it’s meant to be interpreted.
Tim Moore: Exactly right.
Nathan Jones: Hermeneutic if we can use the technical term. If the plain sense makes sense, don’t look for any other sense, lest you come up with nonsense. And unfortunately people don’t look at the plain sense meanings. They don’t let the Bible interpret the symbols, and they come up with these crazy end time views.
Dr. Reagan: In the church I grew up in we were taught that the Bible was the Word of God, the inerrant Word of God. And we were taught that it means exactly what it says from beginning to end, unless it’s talking about the Second Coming in which case it never means what it says.
Tim Moore: Well, see there is a preconceived idea.
Nathan Jones: Yeah.
Dr. Reagan: Because they said that is apocalyptic literature. And apocalyptic literature never means what it says.
Tim Moore: I would obviously disagree. I think the Bible interprets itself, as Nathan said, and often times within the same passage. So, in Revelation 1 the Lord talks about lampstands, and it goes on in the same chapter to interpret those lampstands. Sometimes you have to go back to the Old Testament. But if you come in expecting, well, these things don’t mean what they say, then you’ll never seek or recognize the plain sense meaning that is offered to you.
Dr. Reagan: I think that is one of the greatest abuses of the Bible in general, not just with Bible prophecy, but in general is the spiritualization of Scripture.
Tim Moore: Exactly.
Dr. Reagan: Saying, well it doesn’t mean with it says, let me tell you what it means. Well, of course that makes you God. And people love to spiritualize because then they can say, “Now, I’m going to tell you what it really means.”
Tim Moore: Right.
Nathan Jones: They’ve got the secret knowledge, the gnostic knowledge.
Tim Moore: Yes.
Dr. Reagan: Yes, it is a sad situation because I think God knows how to communicate. I think He wants to communicate. I don’t think you have to have a Ph.D. in something called Hermeneutics or whatever to understand God’s Word. What you do need to get beyond the surface, to get beyond just say the Gospel account is you need the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to understand the Bible in depth. But, if you have that you can understand.
Tim Moore: Well, even the understanding of the Gospel in terms of responding to it requires the Holy Spirit as well. So, really the key to everything is the key to our understanding. But, every Christian, every Believer has the Holy Spirit, and so you have the key to understanding Scripture if you’ll just open it and read it, as we discussed last week.
Dr. Reagan: So, I would just urge people to take it for its plain sense meaning. When people start saying to you, “Well, the 144,000 Jews are not 144,000 Jews.”
Nathan Jones: It even names the tribes.
Dr. Reagan: And they are named by tribe. You think what does God have to do? Put neon lights in the sky saying these are the Jews, these are Jews, these are Jews? But again the reason they can’t accept that is because of a preconceived concept that God has washed His hands of the Jews, has no purpose left for the Jews, and it comes out of Replacement Theology.
Tim Moore: Yes, it does.
Dr. Reagan: So, okay. Okay, what–we’ve talked about the end time viewpoints. We’ve talked about the proper interpretation. Well, the next question that people send in a lot is: Why do Bible prophecy experts tend to focus on the Jewish people and the nation of Israel? I hear that all the time. Why are you so obsessed with Israel?
Tim Moore: Well, because God Himself was focused on the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. He said they were the apple of His eye. In Zechariah chapter 2 he goes on, and on about how his focus is on Israel, and the Jewish people, both as a conduit of blessing to the rest of the world, and as a recipient of significant blessings that remain to this day. So, it is only natural that we would also have the same focus as the Lord God if we study His Word.
Nathan Jones: People seem to forget that Jesus was Jewish.
Tim Moore: Yeah, really?
Nathan Jones: There was a reason He came to the Jewish people. They were meant to be set apart for Him. And He has promises to fulfill to them. Some, sure the Church is the focus now, but the Church isn’t going to be the focus after the Rapture, Israel will be back. And we are seeing it increasingly in the news, day and day. Israel is the focus just as you said, Zechariah 12 & 14 prophesied. Jesus will return, and where does He return? He returns to Israel. He enters into Jerusalem. So, and then the Jewish people, those who get saved during the Tribulation are promised to be priestly people during the Millennial Kingdom. So, if you’re not looking at the Jews when it comes to Bible prophecy, you’re missing all the set up before the play begins, and that’s what we are seeing today.
Dr. Reagan: Yeah, the end time focus of the Bible is the Jewish people. And one of the reasons for that is because over in Daniel chapter 9, Daniel was given a vision of what we call the 70 weeks of years. And it says there that God is going to accomplish certain things during that period of time. And those things have not been accomplished. And so, they are going to be accomplished in the last seven years of that 490 years. We’ve had a gap. When God set the Jewish people aside because of their refusal to accept Jesus as Messiah, and put them under discipline. And they are under discipline now. But the day is coming when we are going to be taken out and God is going to focus once more. And during that seven years He is going to accomplish all of those promises that He made to the Jewish people in Daniel chapter 9. There are quite a number of promises there. And He said in that 490 years He says, “You’re holy city, I will finish–you’ll finish your transgression,” their sin against God will come to an end, “I’ll make an end to your sin, atonement for your iniquity.” That’s been done. That’s the only one that’s been done. “To bring in everlasting righteousness. To seal up vision.” That means He’s going to fulfill all prophecy, and to anoint the most holy place. Those things are going to happen. And the focus is on the Jewish people.
Tim Moore: The great evangelist to the Gentiles, Paul in the book of Romans where he laid out the case for Christ in the New Testament makes it very clear, Romans chapter 11 and elsewhere that Israel has not been cast away. They still have promises left to be fulfilled. And so, we can focus on Israel knowing that they are key to understanding even the time line of God’s final plan.
Dr. Reagan: When Jesus ascended into Heaven, He said in Acts chapter 1–they asked Him said, “Now, is this the time You’re going to establish the Kingdom?” Speaking of the Jewish Kingdom which the Scriptures promise. And He didn’t call them dummies. I mean He had been teaching them for 40 days. All He said was, “It’s not for you to know the time.” But He certainly affirmed the fact that there was going to be a Jewish Kingdom in the future. So, yes, there are things yet to be fulfilled and it focuses upon the Jewish people, there is no doubt about that. Okay, well, let’s go to a next question and that question has to do with: Is all end time prophecy contained in the New Testament, or is there some in the Old Testament?
Tim Moore: Oh, my. There is a tremendous amount in The Old Testament. But that it’s again the foundation of all the prophecies. I love going all the way back to Genesis because even there, there are hints of things to come. The life of Joseph is a picture of Jesus Christ and the deliverance of his brothers, going back to the Jewish nation when he finally reveals himself to his brothers, they look upon him who that had despised, and realized he has brought salvation to his family. That is a picture of Jesus Christ returning. I love even going back to Genesis chapter 18 where Abraham recognizing that Sarah is going to have a child asks: Is this really going to happen. And Sarah herself asked, “Am I going to have a child indeed, when I am so old?” And the Lord responds, “Is anything too difficult for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you.” Now, he’s talking about coming and bringing a son, but that is a glimpse of a promise made that He is going to return. When? At the appointed time. All throughout the Old Testament there are prophetic types, and prophetic promises.
Dr. Reagan: Oh, yes, the oldest book in the Old Testament is the book of Job. And Job makes a comment right in the middle of the book, “That I know” by revelation by faith, “that one day I will be resurrected from the dead and you will stand on the earth, and I will stand before You.”
Tim Moore: And I will stand before You. Amen.
Nathan Jones: I had to look this up because that is a great question. And “The Encyclopedia of Bible Prophecy” by J. Barton Payne he says, you want to know total amount of Bible prophecies: 1,239 in the Old Testament and 578 prophecies in the New Testament, for a total of 1,817 prophecies total in the Bible, of 8,352 covered in Bible prophecy. The Bible covers a lot of prophecy.
Dr. Reagan: But you know some of those are First Comings, some of them are Second Coming, a lot of them though don’t have anything to do with the Messiah.
Nathan Jones: Right, this is just prophecy all together.
Dr. Reagan: They have to do with cities, towns, and empires, people like Cyrus, and so forth. But with regard to end time prophecy there is a lot in the Old Testament. For example if you want to find out what the millennial reign of Jesus Christ is going to be like you’ve got to go the book of Isaiah. There is prophecy after, after prophecy, you don’t go to the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation is about the Tribulation, and it only has one chapter about the Millennium, and mainly the only thing it tells us there is how long it’s going to last. But if you want to know the characteristics of the Millennium you’ve got to go to Isaiah.
Tim Moore: I love Psalm 2 which we’ve talked about on this program before. But at the very last verse of Psalm 2 it says, “Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” So this chapter from the Old Testament written in the time of David is already pointing to that coming return of the Son of God in great wrath, but delivering those who take refuge in Him for salvation.
Dr. Reagan: Okay we’ve got about a minute left in this segment so let me ask you this final question here. People are always writing in: Well, where should I start studying Bible prophecy, of course in the Bible, but outside the Bible where should I start studying? What books should I use?
Tim Moore: Well, obviously the Bible is the go to book. My favorite book used to be The Master Plan which was written by you.
Dr. Reagan: A long time ago, in the 80’s.
Tim Moore: Aww, this was a great book. Mine is very dog eared as opposed to this version that has never been used before. But now thankfully you have expanded into, God’s Plan for the Ages. And so literally this was the book that I used having been inspired to delve into the Word of God to really provide a compository overview as we talked about previously.
Dr. Reagan: Well, the very first book I picked up was one by Tim LaHaye called, Revelation Illustrated and Made Plain. Boy, it really opened up the book of Revelation to me. What about you?
Nathan Jones: I think people should go to bibleprophecyresources.com, which is our own on-line store and they will find 15 books by Dr. David Reagan, and various other authors. And if you go there I think that is the best place to start.
Dr. Reagan: What about another author, does one come to mind to you?
Nathan Jones: I love Ron Rhodes. I eat up Ron Rhodes books like popcorn, they are fantastic. Ed Hindson. Like you said Tim LaHaye is fantastic.
Tim Moore: Yes.
Dr. Reagan: Well, folks, that is our program for today. I hope it has been a blessing to you, and I hope you’ll be back with us again next week when we will focus on questions specifically related to the signs of the times. Until then, this is Dave Reagan, speaking for Lamb & Lion Ministries saying, “Look up, be watchful, for our redemption is drawing near.”
End of Program
