TONIGHT WE ARE CONSIDERING WHY THIS DISARMAMENT PROGRAM WILL NOT TAKE PLACE AND WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES PRESENT EVIDENCE THAT THIS CANNOT HAPPEN. We are well aware that the most important source of information for today is the revealed word of God. We are also aware that all the word of God is not altogether found in the one book which we possess. But the word of God is in this Book. We have in these compiled volumes, the word of the Prophets. And these men were men like you and I, but specially selected by God. And unveiled to their consciousness were these purposes. With each revelation and with each demonstration of personal manifestation, their knowledge increased. And they were told these things as to what to write in these records. They participated in the panorama of history which effected your race and their experiences. The things which the prophets recorded were the voices and revelations and experiences which God gave them, as well as the pictures which He passed before their consciousness. And they recorded these things.
I have often been asked by Clergy who have apparently been effected by the pseudo-theology that is taught in many places of today and these Clergy say: ‘Dr. Swift, do you really believe that the prophecies of the scriptures are true? Don’t you just believe this is something someone wrote and people accepted them?’
They seem quite amazed when I tell them I believe the prophecies of the scriptures. They say: ‘But how can you believe with your study of archaeology and anthropology and these other factors of modern science, in the supernatural pattern of the prophets?’
