Folks, if you are reading this, you are probably a watchman on the wall.
I envision all of us standing upon that wall, our first and also last line of defense.
Every single one of us has a very important job to do.
That job is to sound the warning that Christ’s return is very soon.
We read in 1 Corinthians 13:12 “ For now we see through a glass, darkly;…”
All of us are in the service of the Lord. Some of us have more responsibility, and some have been given less. It does not discount that we are all on the wall, standing as the last defense, ready to sound the alarm.
We ALL see through the glass darkly.
None of us have the 100% answer of what lies ahead.
Yes we have scripture to guide us, but in the end, it is our faith that pushes us forward even when we do not know for sure what lies ahead.
When we as watchmen become overly confident in our position and become like the Pharisees of old, that is when a weakness in the wall develops. After that, the slippery slope is trod upon; pride, arrogance, ways of the flesh start to slowly consume. Then that part of the wall is no longer being defended and the enemy gains a foothold.
When this takes place, the watchmen start looking “IN” versus looking “OUT.” They forget to use critical thought, logic, and instead begin to lean upon their own understanding.
Folks, here at Prophezine I work hard to welcome all who stand upon the solid word of God. I feel that in these last days we must work together because our voice is dwindling. No longer is bible prophecy important to many churches today, let alone it being taught.
I strongly believe that we need to examine all plausible evidence, utilizing the proper rules of interpretation, critical thought and logic.
We must be good Bereans.
A couple of weeks ago Dr. David Reagan released his Jan / Feb issue of Lamplighter Magazine. In this he wrote a scathing article critiquing four books dealing with the eastern leg of the Roman Empire.
I found his article to be unfair and quite one sided. He leveled some serious personal attacks on several of the authors and gave little Scriptural support for his own views.
I believe Scripture should always be our final authority. In the Bible Prophecy world we must be humble enough to consider others view points as valid IF they can be supported scripturally.
I have read the books being critiqued and I know most of the authors being criticized, personally. I cannot more strongly disagree with what Dr. Dave Reagan has written. I can only hope that with prayer and time he will see how personally unkind his critique was.
I also consider Dr. Dave Reagan a friend and fellow watchman on the wall and if a similar unwarranted attack had been leveled against him; I would do the same thing I am doing for these authors. Many of my long time readers know this for fact, because I have done it before.
I am going to provide the authors a space to defend their position and also provide Reagan’s article in question. I ask that you as the reader be good Bereans and scripturally consider both sides of this argument. Most of you know where I stand on this issue.
