Chapter One PREDICTING THE FUTURE

"It was one thing to write a novel that opened with a kamikaze attack against America that essentially comes to pass. But until that moment, few people had been talking publicly about the possibility of going to war with Iraq. Except me." // EPICENTER, PAGE 4

1. Where were you when you heard the news about Pearl Harbor? Where were you when you heard that John F. Kennedy had been shot? These were common questions asked by previous generations of Americans. One of the defining questions for Americans today is, Where were you on September 11, 2001? What were you doing when you heard the news of the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania? _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

2. Did the events of that day alter your thinking about national security, the role of the United States on the world stage, and the situation in the Middle East? If so, explain. If you live in a country other than the U.S., how did 9/11 affect you and your perspective? __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

3. Is it possible, in your view, for human beings to accurately and consistently predict the future? What about God? Is he able to tell us the future? Why or why not? _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

4. Look up the following verses. What is the common message of these passages'Jeremiah 33:3 Daniel 2:20-22 Daniel 2:27-28 Amos 3:7 2 Peter 1:20-21 _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

5. Do you believe the prophecies found in the Bible truly foretell future events, particularly specific events in specific epicenter countries? Why or why not? _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

6. Read the following Scriptures and note what each one says about God's Word: 2 Samuel 22:31 Psalm 119:16 2 Timothy 3:16 _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

7. Based on these Scriptures, what do we know about the credibility of biblical prophecy? _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

8. Of some 1,000 prophecies found in the Bible, scholars say that half of them have already come true. The rest deal specifically with events that will happen in history's last days, in the millennial kingdom, and beyond. What are some examples of Bible prophecies that have already come true? _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________
