Students of Scripture may expect prophecy to give us detailed predictions of the future. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, however, God’s prophets give us no fixed dates and often blend forecasts of events at different times in history, seeing them as a single reality. Ever since Jesus arrived the first time, we have in a sense been living in “the last days.” We cannot know when Christ will return—but our ignorance gives us no excuse for being unprepared. Instead, we have all the greater incentive to await Christ’s second coming!
