Comprising only nine chapters of oracles, it was composed during the age of Jeroboam II, king of Israel from to bce. Twentieth Century Prophet The Messenger To The Laodicean Church Age By God was truly giving Light, Life and Blessing.

This Age lasted from about to the turn of the twentieth century. Turning backward and leaving the Seventh Age to consider at a later time, How very difficult it would be to TURN Israel to Truth by a prophet.

In this book, Matthews provides an introductory look at the hebrew prophets. He begins by explaining what a prophet is and is not. After defining a prophet, he begins his analysis of the Hebrew prophets with Moses and proceeds chronologically through the Old Testament/5.
