JD: David you know one of the tougher things by doing the first broadcast of the year is trying to look ahead. And out of all of the many stories that we could follow and figure out which one we think will become the biggest and most important news that will be made in this coming year.
DJ: You know as I thought about this Jimmy I think we can almost take a play from the weather channel guys. They look at the conditions on the ground they get out all of their computer models, gather all their data. Then they put on a blindfold and start throwing darts hoping that they get at least some of it right some of the time. But as we talked last week the advantage is that we have a general road map in the word of God about where this is all going and how this is going to play out. And I’m hoping we’ll end up doing a better job then the weather men do in putting this all together.
You now for political and news junkies like you and I are 2019 sure was full of a lot of important stories every week. 2020 is already off to a start that makes Bible teachers want to get up in the morning and just see what the Lord’s going to do next. There’s certainly any number of potential stories that we could talk about. I sent you a list of some of those that I think will be some of the most important as we look over the years that’s ahead of us. One of the most important is obviously the upcoming Presidential election because there’s so much at stake when it comes to the shape and direction of our country for years to come. And we could easily get pulled down into the politics which is exactly what we don’t want to do or to not promote either political party or individual candidates. But I think we can talk about platforms and trajectories of individuals and those that they pull into their spears of orbits and the type of people who are drawn toward them.
JD: You know I think you and I have a new title prognosticators. That’s what those weather guys are. I love the way you describe how they give us the weather. They take a dart and throw it with a blindfold on to make sure they don’t know where to even throw the dart.
David James with our plan to help you understand God’s plan for the future in this new year.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The prophetic passages in the Bible give us the end time scenario that is God’s plan for the future. As we make decisions for the future we must know what that future will be according to the word of God. II Peter chapter 1 says that we have a more sure word of prophecy more sure then even an eyewitness account to the event, that according to the apostle Peter. John another apostle, wrote what Jesus revealed to him in the book of Revelation. And that’s that sure word of prophecy. And remember the apostle Paul told us to preach that word, that’s II Timothy 4:1-4.
