This is not the usual "Rapture-Tribulation-Second Coming" prophecy book. The biblical prophets do not give you tomorrow's headlines. They had troubles enough in their own time. But they do have a message that speaks to every age, including ours. The Days of the Prophets makes that message accessible. As a reader, you will journey back into the world of the prophets to see the issues they faced and their hopes and fears for the people of Israel and Judah. You will see the outcome of their prophecies in biblical history. You will learn from the prophet Jeremiah that the future is not predetermined by prophecy. The future is open. We are not locked into some grim scenario of the Antichrist and bloody Armageddon. We find in scripture how Armageddon can be averted; the Four Horsemen can be unseated. Christ's death and resurrection has changed everything. No evil is inevitable; no good is impossible in Him. From the biblical prophets we learn that God's judgment is more about saving us from our self-destructive impulses, and less about punishing sinners. Readers will get a fresh perspective on how God works in history. From the "Four Winds of Heaven" you will learn to recognize the rhythms, currents, and cycles of history. You will learn about "crisis eras" that bring one age to a close and set the stage for a new age, and that "end times" are really new beginnings. You will find and explore a prophecy by Isaiah that points the way to peace between Israelis and Palestinians. From the Old Testament prophets we move to the words of Jesus. We examine Jesus' discourse on the Mount of Olives that many have misapplied as a Second Coming prophecy. We then move on to the most controversial book of the New Testament, the Revelation of St. John. We look at the setting and time frame for John's visions, and the source of those visions. Visions we explore in depth include the Lamb and the Throne, the Books of Heaven, the Seven Seals, and Armageddon. Rev. Teeter draws his insights from a lifetime of teaching Bible in Christian colleges, as well as his eleven years of research and teaching Bible, Judaism, and Islam in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
