Daniel 12:9-10 instructs us that the wise of only one generation will be able to fully understand end-times prophecies. That final generation must come to this understanding in order to be properly prepared and motivated for what they will need to endure. It is imperative that our eschatology be both biblical and contemporary, for as we draw nearer and nearer to the end-times, greater clarity in understanding apocalyptic prophecies should come.
In Advancing the Watch, Pastor Kirk Wesselink presents a groundbreaking look at prophecy rooted in a thoroughly consistent, conservative exposition of relative Bible passages. He maintains the dispensational, pre-tribulational, and pre-millennial foundation, but honestly challenges their traditional view of many prophetic texts.
The listener is carefully instructed in how to avoid prophetic pitfalls through a straightforward primer on interpretive rules for prophecy and key foundational principles. The work builds on research stretching back over 100 years, and the author is willing to engage in "constructive demolition" to advance the Church's prophecy watch. A new generation will be challenged, trained, and encouraged with a powerful, up-to-the-minute look at the fullness of God's prophetic Word by Advancing the Watch.
What would have made Advancing the Watch better?
I didn't make it through the first chapter, listening to this book was like listening to myself read out load, and I am horrible at reading out loud, tripping over words and miss reading words. The voice was also monotone. Other than that I really cannot comment on the rest of the book since I could not get into due to the person reading it.
