From the February 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The importance of the prophetic word is indicated by the fact that, it comprises about one fourth of the entire Scriptures, also by the Master's care in pointing to its fulfillment in his own experience and ministry. We have become, as a general rule, so accustomed to think of the prophecies as chiefly concerned with a remote past or a remote future, that we do not perhaps fully realize, in this connection, that our own time is to us the only connecting link between the past and the future, and therefore the most important period there now is.
