Answers to the Most Important Questions about the End Times: Will I Have to Go Through the Tribulation? Who Is the Antichrist? What Is Armageddon? What Will the New Jerusalem Be Like? and Many More by Dr John Hart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Right before the account of the second coming of Christ in Revelation, the following words are given to the apostle John to write: “For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus” (Revelation 19:10). Let me reinstate the verse this way. “The very heart and purpose of prophecy is to point to who Jesus really is, “Prophecy demonstrates that Jesus is the most significant, most powerful, most worthy person in the universe.
It is difficult to rate a book on the end times since there are several beliefs such as when the rapture will occur, the 1000 year reign, and depending on where you stand on those beliefs will determine how you rate this book. For me, the author did well in how he presented the book of Revelation and tied it to other prophetic books of the bible. My own background, I have read several books and have done several studies such as Bible Study Fellowship and Kay Arthur which I highly recommend. The book of Revelation is to encourage and warn of what is to come and the purpose of the Kingdom of God.
With some difficult passages to understand, the author takes the text with the context and makes the prophecy make sense. Such as the Apostle Paul’s prophecy on the woman and the child was snatched away. By taking that word snatched and tying it to 1 Thessalonians 4:17, the body of Christ is the church and refers to the rapture.
Another word is the word Babylon and the destruction of the city. At the time that the prophecy was written, Rome was a code name for Babylon. So to the least, it has an interesting turn and urges the reader to further study.
If you are a little wary of getting into a study of Revelation, I would encourage you to give this book a try. It walks with the reader and has scripture revealing scripture. Such as it should.
