Prophetic Forecast by Joshua Giles

God has given Giles insight into what is happening today and what will be happening in the near future. Giles' desire is to prepare Christians for what is coming. He reveals some of his past prophetic words, such as one predicting a coming virus. He includes very good teaching on the aspects of prophecy. There is material at the end of each chapter including practical suggestions for remaining faithful in ministry and preparing for the future.

Giles writes about many changes coming in the near future including a new pathogen worse than Covid, a great prophetic movement, money systems changing to digital, changes in national ranks, food shortages to become the norm, changes in weather patterns, a new social media platform, a new political party in the US, a female US president in the near future, a persecution coming to the Church in America and other developed nations not seen in modern times, great unity in the body, and more. “Life as we know it will change along with everything around us.” (1455/2986) Like every prophetic revelation made in the past, time will be the test for Giles' predictions.

There were a couple of things in the book that bothered me. One was Giles taking Jeremiah 29:11, a promise to Israel, out of its context. (355/2986) Another was Giles declaring that the president took the US out of the UN. (1980/2986) This is not true. President Trump did remove the US from UNESCO and UNHRC in 2017 and 2018 respectively but that is far different than being removed from the United Nations in total.

Giles has given Christians a book full of information and encouragement to be prepared for the future. This book is especially appropriate for those called to prophetic ministry. We Christians need to be aware of Satan's tactics and prophetic voices are key to that awareness.
