July 4, 2016 Bible prophecies are not preached in the majority of churches and specially in the Catholic Church
In the video below Gary and Tom Hughes explain the lack of prophecy teaching in the churches. Tom goes in some detail on the number of prophecies that are coming to pass in Israel and the middle east.
It is negligent if not outright foolish to ignore the Bible prophecies that God placed there for us to guide our lives and protect our souls. God is the only being that can see the future and the prophecies are 100% accurate.
Then why are many so difficult to discern before they happen? and others so specific? Well one very important reason is to avoid Satan and those who follow him of knowing and planning against them, or forcing us to dig deeper for the understanding. But they are clear enough to get the broader picture and the timing of fulfillment for those who study the word.
