- 7 Dangers Of Neglecting Biblical Prophecy In The Pulpit
- When pastors remain silent on biblical prophecy, believers look for information on biblical prophecy on social media and the internet. There they find a wide array of teachings and opinions, some biblical, but most are false and misleading.
- Many pastors fear causing division in their congregation and thus remain silent on matters related to the Rapture. However, they fail to realize that it’s their refusal to preach on what the Bible says on this matter that has led to the very diversity of opinions in their churches. The potential for disunity is there even if they remain quiet.
- Another consequence of silence in the pulpits regarding future things is that believers look for hope in things other than Jesus’ imminent appearing.
- The Lord intended our hope in the Rapture to be a motivation for godly living. Silence in the pulpits regarding our “blessed hope” leaves those in the seats assuming they have their whole lives ahead of them although Scripture tells us this may not be the case. For many, this negates the urgency to walk closely with the Lord.
- The scarcity of preaching on biblical prophecy leaves believers unprepared and unaware of the dark and threatening storm clouds gathering on our horizon.
