Prophecy is not like angelology—a doctrine that is approached with a tepid response. Prophecy has its strong advocates, but it also has its strong detractors. It appears that there is no middle ground.
The origin of my messages is always the text. I like to preach through a series because the people are not only hearing a message, but they are getting the entire context of several passages. For instance, I recently preached through the life of David. Each week, the background for that week’s message came from last week’s message.
