I will be posting, Lord willing, a series of sermon summaries by Pastor Scott Markle of Melvin Baptist Church in Melvin, Michigan. I have never had the privilege of meeting Pastor Markle in person, but have had the privilege of getting to know him a little bit over the Internet. He is the author of God’s Wisdom for Marriage & the Home, which can be ordered directly from him (info here) or from Amazon (UK / US / Canada) in hardback, paperback, or Kindle.
Pastor Markle has been sending me summaries of his sermons for some time, and this series particularly caught my attention. I have concluded that many studies on prophecy miss the point somewhat. God did not give us prophetic Scriptures primarily so we could work out precise timelines as to how things will happen when Christ returns. The greatest importance of prophetic passages in the Scriptures to believers today is to edify us and motivate us today to greater faith, hope, and charity.
In this series, Pastor Markle has put in the work to give us an extensive list of Scriptures which teach us how the promise of Christ’s return should motivate us in our Christian walk today. I am grateful for the work he has put in, and grateful for his kind permission in letting me post it here.
