Prophecy is important. Actually, it’s critical. The reason why prophecy matters so much is it validates the integrity of God. When you have a God who can be validated because what He says comes true, then you also know He can be trusted.
It not only validates the person of God, but also the Word of God. That means it validates Jesus Christ, who is the Word. Scripture can be trusted because the God who authored it can be trusted.
Scripture helps us understand what’s happening around us in the day-to-day world in which we live, work and play. Because we know where this all is going, we’re able to be at rest even when what’s happening around us is in critical chaos.
As such, prophecy is a big deal. It authenticates God’s Word, making sense of the realities that we face in our lives so that we can live in a way that is glorifying to God and that is meaningful to us. So, don’t ignore prophecy. Let it have its way in your life, so that you can live life with the end in mind.
