We're living in big moment in history, but all of history has a purpose. To understand the purpose behind world events we need a biblical worldview.

Transcript

[Darris McNeely] World events come and go, some flare up, and then they pass and life goes on, returns to normal and then something else comes up. You know, recently here on BT Dailys, we've covered the most recent episode between the Palestinians and the Israelis in the State of Israel. We've talked about antisemitism. We've done many, many BT Dailys and even some of our larger "Beyond Today" programs on the recent COVID pandemic. And as I speak here today, things are opening up. The pandemic is in our rearview mirror at this time in many ways. And yet, as we recognize, life goes on, things happen sometimes very quickly, and then they pass. And we might not cover them or think about them as we normally do but their effect lingers. And then other things happen, that are big, that are eventful, that we should understand about.

How should we view what is happening? A lot has been happening in the last year. And as I've said before, it seems almost like history has accelerated with the events that we're dealing with. And there's no question that we are going through huge changes in our world right now. Among the nations, we're seeing ideas come in that are radical, changing the way we think. We are seeing cultural shifts that are taking place. Frankly, with what has happened in COVID, we've understood that these types of events leave no one untouched in any part of the world. And that is a very important fact to understand. World happening, world-shaking events have taken place. We are indeed living at a very large, big moment in world history. And I think it's critical that we not only understand what is happening but why.

Here on "Beyond Today," we try to get to the why. We bring out the Biblical worldview and we bring out what God is doing. We read Scriptures like Acts 17:26 Acts 17:26And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
American King James Version×
, where the Apostle Paul says that God has made from one blood all the nations of men that dwell on the face of the Earth and has determined their pre-appointed times, the boundaries of their dwellings. That verse tells us that God guides history. He's very much involved in history.

In Colossians 1:26 Colossians 1:26 Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
American King James Version×
, Paul talks about the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations but now has been revealed to His saints. There's a great deal about life, and history, and the world of our past, and even our present that is a mystery. Other Scriptures speak to this, the fact that God has a purpose and a plan that He is bringing about in this world. History has a purpose. And that purpose is tied up with the Bible prophecy. And again, with all the different topics that we talk about, Biblical proportions of prophecy, and the purpose of life and God and here on "Beyond Today," we seek to bring to you formation, not only what is happening, but why is happening from a Biblical worldview. That's what we need to understand.

And that's why I want to delve deeper into here in a series of BT Dailys so that we can understand these events in a Biblical worldview. We can talk about a flare-up in the Middle East, but it's going to come and go, even the pandemic has subsided after a year and other events will happen and take place but then, as we go on with our life, we've got to have that all critical understanding as to the why. And that's where Biblical worldview comes in. Understand that and then we are on the road to understanding God's mind and God's purpose, not only for this world but for our life. Talk about that, again.

That's BT Daily. Join us next time.
