The significance of the prophetic books

The word of God in the prophetic books is understood to have a potential significance that goes far beyond the time they describe. The prophetic books guide their readers so that they can recognize the signs of the times and align themselves with God’s plan. Everything found in these books is valid, though not everything is significant for each historical moment or generation. Many things have already been fulfilled, others await their time, and still others can (or will) be like those events that have already happened.—The Prophets of Israel, page 30
