There's a lot of talk about prophecy in the air. It doesn't hurt that I just completed a novel on the subject and my daughter is in a Bible study on Revelation. The subject last night at dinner was the different views on the Rapture of the church. I explained that I included references to the judgments and crowns in the back of my book and might need more information on the resurrections before publishing. It's gratifying to help people understand something that is unclear to them. It's the heart of the teacher I suppose.
It's been years since I taught Revelation. The last time, it was verse by verse in two sessions over three years. I taught it to the same people who wanted me to do it a third time, which I didn't because I was burned out, much like I feel now after tying loose ends on this book. Then a few minutes ago, a booklet fell off the shelf and landed at my right elbow. That's expected in a cramped space like mine. But it's not expected that the title be "Outline Studies in Prophetic Truths" and be opened to the chart outlining the resurrections. I studied this "Back to the Bible" material as a teenager and my reaction over fifty years later is "Yes, Lord."
I ask that You make what's important to You, LORD, important to me.
