I am very excited to announce my new series based on Pastor David Jeremiah’s book and study guide entitled, “What in the World is Going On?---10 Prophetic Clues You Cannot Afford to Ignore,” published in 2008. My personal challenge will be to try and keep the information as current as possible. Nonetheless, there are 10 very timely prophetic lessons (one for each chapter) to be learned and heeded throughout the entire Bible Study. Once again, I enthusiastically look forward to learning more about Jesus on our journey together over these next 10 months.
However, before we begin our first lesson, I really believe we need to get to know Pastor David Jeremiah, PhD, up close and personal. He is, without a doubt, one of my favorite Bible teachers with a tremendous passion for “rightly dividing the Word of Truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, NKJV). In fact, last year he just finished, what I would call, his life’s work entitled, “The Jeremiah Study Bible,” drawing on more than 40 years of comprehensive ministry with one goal in mind---to help make the Bible practical in peoples’ lives today. I am honored to have my very own, autographed copy that I will repeatedly reference until Kingdom come. Meanwhile, he has been Senior Pastor of the 8,000-member Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego (El Cajon), California since 1981. His nationwide television broadcast is seen in about 200 million homes each week and his radio program, Turning Point (of which I am a faithful listener), is heard on more than 1,800 stations globally, with a weekly audience of over 10 million. Dr. Jeremiah has authored over 40 best-selling books on a wide range of topics, including “Captured by Grace,” “What in the World is Going On,” and “God Loves You---He Always Has, He Always Will” (Jeremiah, 2013). My wife, Janice, and I have visited his church on more than one occasion and personally heard him preach; we consider Pastor David Jeremiah a wonderful blessing to the Body of Christ and hope you will, too.
So stay tuned as the next stop on our journey, together with Pastor Jeremiah, will be Lesson One---The Israel Connection…See you then!
