If we don’t have a good overview of what we’re reading in the Bible, prophecies will undoubtedly seem disjointed.
In Isaiah 9:16 we’re told:
Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray.
We can take this to mean that it is our responsibility to not be misled, which means it’s incumbent on us to be informed—to be able to discern right from wrong.
Consider the chilling statement in Hosea 4:6:
My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
We don’t have to be misinformed or uninformed. As we’ve learned in these studies on History and Prophecy, if you want to know the future, you have to understand the past.
