We are grateful for your interest in the site. Here are some suggestions about how to get the most out of your visits to Prophecy Central. You may already know all this, but for the benefit of those who don't, here are some tips:
1 - Check out the "Top Story" every day. Near the top of our welcome page, we list one or more stories that we feel are especially relevant to Biblical prophecy. Click on the story title. This will take you to one of our nearly 100 study topic pages. The same title will be shown with a short descriptive paragraph about the issue. This paragraph usually summarizes the most important facts about the story. If you want more information, click on the title if it is underlined or any other part of the article that is underlined. These links will take you to the source(s) of the story. As you know, many Internet sources are only posted for a short time. When we discover a link that is no longer working we keep the summary but remove the link. We then add the statement "Story no longer on line."
2 - While you are on one of these study topic pages, scan some of the other articles that have been posted there. If you want to spend some time in this section, use the scroll controls on the right side of your browser to go to the top of the page. Most study topic pages have a short list of choices you may make. They may include Key Scriptures, Current Events, Links, and Excerpts from The Prophecy Puzzle. There may also be cross reference links to other study topics. For example, on the Antichrist page you will find, "See Also: Mark of The Beast and False Christs." Click on the section you wish to visit. We'll say more about these choices later.
3 - Browse other sources of prophecy news. Right below the "Top Story" on Prophecy Central's home page, there are two rows of buttons which link you immediately to other popular Internet sources of prophecy news. A sample headline from each source is shown below the button. This is usually their top story of the day. Click on the appropriate button, read their stories, then click on the "Back" button on your browser to return to Prophecy Central. Even if you don't take the time to visit each of these sites, scanning this section gives you an idea of what is going on around the world.
4 - If you have not visited Prophecy Central for a few days, catch up on what you have missed by browsing the "Earlier Top Stories " in the right column of the home page. Top Stories for the previous two weeks are listed. At the bottom of that list, you may click on "Visit the Archives for More Stories".
5 - Search for key word(s) by using the Google search engine, which is located at the bottom of the page.
6 - Look for a certain topic in Prophecy Central's topical index. Click on the "Study Topics" button at the top of the left column of our home page. This will take you to a page where topics are listed alphabetically. Click on the topic you would like to study.
7 - Once you have reached a study topic page there is usually a short list of options. Typical choices on study pages include: Key Scriptures, Current Events, Links, and Excerpts from The Prophecy Puzzle. Some pages also have cross-reference links to other study topics which are closely related. Click on the section you wish to visit.
8 - Look up Key Scripture References from the various study topic pages. Click on any of these references to see the verse(s) at Bible Gateway site. From that site you may view the same passage in various versions. Returning to the list of Scripture references, you will notice an entry to the right of each reference which says, "Further study." Click on those words to see the same passage in the Blue Letter Bible. At that site you may see the original Greek or Hebrew, read commentaries and find other Bible study reference works that relate to the passage.
9 - Use the navigation bars near the top of the page to explore the many special features of Prophecy Central. It truly is ""A World of Information About Biblical Prophecy"!
10 - Enjoy "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done" - Our major online book about prophecy. There is a link to it on the navigation bars.
