Why do some people prefer not to hear teaching on prophetic events?
Because of worldliness, men don’t want to hear about prophetic events. First John 2:15-17 says, Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof. The message of Christ’s return is a “purifying hope” ( see 1 John 3:2,3). This is sort of hope that makes a person holy if he really believes it. For these reasons, men don’t preach it, and many don’t even want to hear it.
