Why Is Bible Prophecy Important?

Welcome to Prophecy Q & A with Jimmy DeYoung!

I’ve found so many times today that people who study Bible prophecy only study it to find out who the Antichrist is, where such-and-such a place is, and where a certain event is going to take place. You can obviously study Bible prophecy to figure those things out, but don’t get caught up in the minute details, some of which we will only know after the rapture of the Church takes place. We’ll only know from the heavenlies where a lot of these events are going to take place, who the major players are, who the personalities are, and the names that are put to those personalities.

Be very careful as you study Bible prophecy that you understand it with its ultimate goal in mind – how we are to live our lives on a daily basis. This world is getting increasingly worse. From day to day as we watch the events that are taking place around the world, we realize that the world is not getting better. We’re not going to save the earth. We are to be wise stewards, but we’re not going to save the earth.

We’re to be involved in the priorities of life. What are they? It’s bringing glory and honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are to glorify God in all that we do and in how we live our lives on a daily basis. We are to glorify God not just on Sunday morning for two hours, not just at the particular times we feel like being Christians, but in every aspect of our lives, in every moment of every day.

God has revealed to us through His Word how we are to live our lives and the priorities we are to have:  how to live, how to act, and how to respond to certain situations in life. When you talk to people that have studied Bible prophecy but haven’t really understood a lot of things, when they finally understand, they’re just so appreciative – they have the comfort to know that God does have a game plan. He has a big game plan! He lays out history past, history present, and then history future,; He even tells us what role we are to play in that big picture. That’s what we do on a daily basis, and that’s what we’re involved with.

Jimmy DeYoung was a prophecy teacher and journalist who travelled the country and the world educating the Body of Christ of the future events foretold in God’s prophetic Word. His goal was to equip Christians with the knowledge and understanding of what God’s Word says will happen someday soon, so that they can make better decisions today. Dr. DeYoung went home to be with his Savior on August 15, 2021.
