Bible Prophecy Frees Us from an Earthly Perspective
A knowledge of Bible prophecy gives a real hope that changes our perspective in this world. It is a hope based on two worlds, this world and the next. We are not citizens here, we are “citizens of heaven, and we wait for the Saviour who comes from heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform the body that belongs to our low estate till it resembles the body of his Glory, by the same power that enables him to make everything subject to himself”(Phil. 3:20–21 Moffatt).
The future is important right now because in the light of prophecy, today touches eternity. And where we will be tomorrow depends upon what we do today. If we live for this world and the present system, which is doomed and perishing, we will perish with it. But if we use the present to prepare for the great future God has planned, we belong to God and the future, and shall one day, if faithful, see God’s will done on earth as it is now done in heaven above.
