An excerpt from a profile and interview done with Perry Stone by Charisma magazine:
Perry Stone is a study in contrasts. He has limited formal education for someone sought after as a Bible expert, yet he’s written over 40 books. A Southerner, he’s popular in the Northeast. He bases his ministry in a small Tennessee town, yet he impacts the world through television. He is a fourth-generation Pentecostal preacher whose largest group of followers are Baptists-and Roman Catholics are in the top four.
Best known as a teacher of end-times Bible prophecy, his biggest pleasure is pouring over the Scripture-he claims to have put in 60,000 hours of study. Stone also defies nearly every stereotype leveled at Pentecostals. Affiliated with the Church of God ( Cleveland, Tennessee) he can preach like a Pentecostal but usually teaches in a more academic style. He’s on thousands of TV stations, yet he never asks for money.
As one of America’s foremost experts on biblical prophecy, Stone often is invited as the keynote speaker at internationally attended prophecy conferences. But don’t expect him to agree with those who dub his prophetic teaching “end time theology”.
“I just call it New Testament Theology,” he says,”It’s basically three main points.
- No. 1: There comes a time of end; not the end of time, but a time of the end. Our basic theology is to understand there is a time of the end and an end generation.
- No. 2: There are specific signs [in the Bible] indicating when that generation is to come.
- No. 3: is to preach those signs to encourage people to come to know Christ.
“Those are the three simple ways that I look at what I do”. To read the entire Charisma magazine interview online – click here.
