Why is Israel such a flashpoint in the world? Are the prophecies of the prophets accurate? What have the prophets said in the past that came true long after they died? What prophecies are likely to happen in our future? Are the prophecies concerning the return of Christ happening right now?

These are just some of the questions that were addressed in an eleven-week study,  The study was first written and used by Dr. Michael Coffman in 1992 and was revised in 1995 and 1998. It underwent revision again in 2006 to include geopolitical events that have occurred since 1998.

Dr. Coffman has intensively studied the new age movement, environmentalism and the geopolitics of the current efforts which are striving to create a world government and religion. Based on his studies, God has used him to stop a major, but deadly United Nations Treaty from being ratified by the U.S. Senate. He was with the group in South Africa that stopped the effort to make the Earth Charter the global ethic/religion of the United Nations at the 2002 at the UN World Summit on Sustainable Development. He also correctly predicted in 1999 that a major terrorist attack would occur in the United States led by Osama bin Laden and that bin Laden would not be caught or killed. He is one of a very few people in the United States who have an in-depth knowledge of current events that relate to Biblical prophecy.

These lessons were written by Dr. Michael Coffman over a 15 year period. Interpretation of prophecy is very personal and is highly controversial, even within the group of scholars who love the Lord and truly seek God's ways in their lives and understanding. Therefore, we ask that every reader of these lessons read the Introduction to the lessons before reading any lesson or subject within a lesson for proper understanding of its content and interpretation!
