Derek Prince – Bible Teacher
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
Yesterday I spoke about how to approach biblical prophecy. Today I’m going to try to apply what I was teaching yesterday.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF A SPINE
I have a theory that a word spoken in the spirit never dies. And when I was still a fairly young believer, I think I was still in the British army in the Middle East, I just heard a statement made by a Jewish believer, and there weren’t many in those days, his name was Myer Pearlman and he was a member of the General Council of the Assemblies of God in the United States.
And he said with regard to interpreting prophecy, it’s like putting together the pieces of a human body or a human skeleton and if you want to do it successfully, you have to start with the right piece. And he said the right piece is the spine, when you get the spine in place then you can begin to fit the other members into it.
And that has stuck with me now more than 50 years. And tonight I’m going to try to deal with the SPINE of biblical prophecy. He said it is Matthew chapter 24 and that’s where we’re going to spend most of our time this evening, Matthew chapter 24.
