THIS IS NOT MY REGULAR MONTHLY TEACHING LETTER. I have been studying a subject lately which I think needs to be addressed. I have reservations about even getting into this subject as it has to do with prophecy. If I don’t write what I have discovered recently, I will be condemned and if I do write about it and it is proved to be wrong, I will be condemned. I have discussed this situation with several people in the last few days and they are advising me to make what I have found known.
Now right from the start, before I get started, I want you to know I am not a prophet and I don’t even pretend to be one. I have, though, studied much on the subject. I really never understood prophecy very much until I heard the fourteen audio tape series on Revelation by Bertrand L. Comparet. The modulation on the tapes that I originally bought was so bad that I could hardly hear them. By running the signal through a good equalizer, clearing up the modulation to some extent and using a pair of head phones, I could barely make out what was being said.
The next thing I decided to do was to type out all of these tapes on paper. It took me several months to do this, but I finally got it done. I can tell you this: when you type every word out, as I did, you learn a lot more than just listening to the tapes. There were many words that I was unfamiliar with and had to look up many reference materials to find out what he was talking about and find out how to spell some of the names of people and places he named.
There were about fifteen words I never could find the spelling for. I now own a much improved set of these tapes, but #13 needs a little work on it to make the sound a little clearer. I will probably offer this set of tapes sometime in the future on my study aids list. As far as I am concerned, Comparet was the very best on prophecy I ever heard.
