We would like to know what is going to happen relative to prophecy, yet Jesus stresses that each of us has an important work to accomplish.
Studying prophecy is good, but doctrine and Christian living are far more necessary and helpful to our practicing and growing in God's way of life now.
Though Christ has warned us to be aware of the times, we need to be more alert to how we are living. End-time events should lead us to repentance.
Distractions produce a movement toward randomness and confusion, seriously endangering one's calling. We must sharpen our focus on God and His purpose.
All of God's people should be watchmen like Habakkuk, living continually by faith, discerning, listening to, and responding to God's instructions.
When a righteous man feels an inclination to sin, God will place stumblingblocks in his way to force moral choices, as well as a watchman to give understanding.
