Apocalyptic Terror and Millennial Glory

Ross Mccallum Jones

Paperback 2020-02-26

Publisher Description

Apocalyptic Terror and Millennial Glory is a commentary on the book of Revelation; a book written to prepare Christians for Jesus' coming and the Great Tribulation that precedes it. The series of visions is complex, but when complemented by prophetic material from the Old Testament, Jesus' prophecies, and other Scriptures, a clear chronology is discerned. The text is divided into 80 passages which are presented in two-page studies, with Scripture on the left and commentary on the right. The text is explained clearly and naturally, emphasizing the fact that John's series of visions is really a picture book, or a series of video clips, with much symbolism and metaphor that needs to be interpreted imaginatively, rather than literally. The Messianic reign on earth following Jesus' return is regarded as the clear climax; glory for Jesus and glory for the saints. Evidence of a pre-tribulation rapture is scarce; rather, Revelation encourages the saints to faithfully endure persecution, even martyrdom, knowing that they have a glorious future here on earth and on into eternity. The time is drawing near. The nation of Israel is regathered in their land and recently celebrated their 70th anniversary. Globalization is increasing, the gospel is being preached in the whole world, and the 2000th anniversary of the Church is approaching. Anti-Christian forces are everywhere; secular humanism, militant Islam, Chinese and Indian nationalism. In these last days, a clear understanding of the Apocalypse is vital.
