We're all very busy, we all have a lot to do, so why do you think we should stop and take time out for class, hours of every week that we could be doing a lot of other work for the Lord? Somebody might ask, "Dad, how come we're taking all this time to study all this Bible Prophecy again when we could be busy doing all this work we've gotta get done before it happens?--Or we could be busy out postering, litnessing, witnessing and soul-winning!--Getting more souls saved out there, busy in the harvest field, out there reaping instead of sitting here in the barn studying these prophecies again! Wouldn't it be better to spend all this time getting all these projects done and all of our evangelisation of the World done and worry about this when it happens?" What do you think? (Fam: No! We really need it, the Lord's showing you a lot of new things!)
Sitting in the barn or in the field sharpening the scythe is not time wasted!--Sitting in the barn sharpening the scythe with which you're going to reap, which is sort of your mind and your knowledge of the Word and the power of His Spirit, sharpening the scythe. Because you're going to be a better witness, more knowledgeable, better able to explain these things to people in a more convincing manner with better documentation and references and a sure knowledge of the Word. "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth!"--2Tim.2:15.
So it makes you a better witness, that's the main idea! It's going to improve your witnessing or your knowledge in the days when many shall come to you wanting to know as they see these things happening. They're already doing that, running up to the people out postering (distributing posters with Gospel messages) wanting to know, "What is that? What's going to happen? What's it all about?" We're getting reports that the Posters are the best witnessing tools they have ever had and winning souls faster than anything they've ever used! The people just take one look at the picture of Heaven and want to go There! We've got a few warning ones too about where they don't want to go! So if we can't love'm into Heaven we'll try to scare'm into Heaven!
