Description : "Though St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators." ~ G.K. Chesterton The book of Revelation was written to do just that: reveal. But most commentaries nowadays either engage in bizarre speculations about the future, or they keep an embarrassed distance from all the apocalyptic events that the apostle John says will “shortly take place.” In this commentary, Douglas Wilson provides a passage-by-passage walkthrough of the entire book, showing how John’s most notorious prophecies concern the Fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. Explaining symbols and characters as he goes, Wilson shows from the text that not only is this book not an elaborate code, but that Revelation is not even ultimately concerned with the end of the world as we know it. Revelation is about the triumph of the Church, which always happens when the Man comes around.

Description : Book Four of the science fiction space opera series, The Revelation of Brian A. Pearlmitter, takes the story in an entirely new - and entirely unexpected - direction. While this book covers only 5 days in the life of Roger, Bess, Jane and the other members of the Connection, it serves as both an ending and a beginning, not only the story, but for each of the main characters as well. When the alien that calls himself Brian A. Pearlmitter reveals the design of the device that the team must build, they realize that they have to dedicate their remaining time to the singular purpose of creating something so difficult and dangerous, that it could cost one of the team members their life. They realize that their time of discovering the wonders of the Revelation is over. Soon, they must begin the task of actually fulfilling their purpose on earth. They know it won't be easy, but even though there may be danger, they feel a shared sense of optimism; finally, they know their purpose and have faith that they will be able to accomplish it. They are eager to get started on what comes next. But other things are happening, unknown to anyone in the group. There is an evil thing in their inner circle and none of them are aware of it. Book Four: The Celebration provides the most shocking and the most unexpected events of the entire story arc.

Description : The key to understanding the book of Revelation is enclosed in its title. It is a revelation! It reveals things that were unknown, makes them plain and understandable. Consequently, it is not to be regarded as a mystery that needs to be solved, a book with a hidden meaning, that requires experienced scholars to unravel it. Quite the opposite! It presents itself as the solution to the riddle, revealing how all the major prophesies of the Bible will find their fulfilment, while documenting what happens to our world in its transition to the next stage in human history. It contains exactly what Jesus Christ wants to reveal to us, on a ‘need to know' basis. Is he capable of revealing something? Does he require other people to explain to us what he actually meant? Of course not! So let us do something very unusual and try to understand the book of Revelation just as it is! We are all students of the word, not teachers. Jesus is our teacher in this case. Everything we pretend to know might hold us back from discovering something really new to us.

Description : Invitation to Biblical Theology provides a thorough overview of biblical theology that is accessible for those new to the topic but substantial enough for advanced study. Defining biblical theology as the study of the whole Bible on its own terms, Jeremy Kimble and Ched Spellman begin with a brief history of the discipline followed by a survey of contemporary approaches. They then lay out their own approach, built on the framework of the canon, the covenants, and Christ. Taking God's plan of redemption in Christ as the uniting theme of Scripture, Kimble and Spellman survey the grand storyline of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, showing how each division of the canon moves the overarching story forward. The following ten chapters survey central and recurring themes of Scripture including kingdom, worship, Messiah and atonement, God's glory, and mission. The authors conclude with reflections on how biblical theology can serve the church as well as the academy.

Description : The Spring Feasts rehearse the Engagement and the Fall Feast are a rehearsal of the Wedding. We should approach our celebration of these Moedim from that standpoint. If we do, not only will we please Yahuah, but we will mature from the milk of the Word to the meat of it. In the process, we will fulfill “the letter” and properly prepare ourselves as the Bride; and have our candles lit when Yahusha returns to receive us unto himself. We read in 1 Corinthians 2:7 that Sha’ul mention “predestined before the ages to our glory”! We are going to go back to the very beginning, before the Feasts of Yahuah were given orally to Adam and before they were written down in detailed instructions in The Mosaic Covenant. Why? Because now, in The Yahushaic Covenant, they have found their ultimate meaning Spiritually; meaning which was ordained before the foundation of the world and predestined before the ages, as Sha’ul stated.

Description : One of the difficulties that many people have with this last book of the Bible lies in the fact that they do not begin with the text itself but with a particular scheme of interpretation. Then they try to superimpose that scheme of interpretation on the text of Revelation. The author has made in this volume a conscientious effort to begin with the text in its own original context as a series of messages to seven first-century churches. This approach does not in any way entail that all of the events described in Revelation were fulfilled in the first century. That obviously is not the case. What readers need to do is to understand how those seven churches would receive what the apostle John had to say and then derive principles for practical application as we get closer and closer to the return of Christ. This is the only book in God's Word that specifically promises a blessing to those who read it and heed its message. The closer we get to Christ's return, the more important the book of Revelation will become. So we trust that readers of this volume will find biblical principles that can help them face the events and turmoil of the last days with, as one old hymn says, "Loyalty to Christ."

Description : The book of Revelation is filled with Old Testament images and its language of fulfillment, reminding readers of the exodus of God’s people from the land of Egypt. In reviewing God’s Word, however—both Israel’s epic deliverance and the events of the last days foretold in the New Testament—Pastor Bill Sturm has concluded that there is no biblical basis for believing God will remove His people before He judges the ungodly in the end times.How can Christians make sense of this? What should be our response? This verse-by-verse commentary on Revelation explores these themes within the King James text (assisted by easy-to-understand Greek reflection) so that you can ready yourself for what’s to come—remaining steadfast in the time of trouble until the ultimate Exodus at Christ’s 2nd Coming.

Description : Spiritual and emotional engagement with God can seem elusive. Though we desire sacred encounters and a deep relationship with our Creator, achieving such intimacy may feel out of our grasp. Through the metaphor of the Tabernacle, author Lis Stubbs offers a place of rest and a path to closeness with our heavenly Father. Just as the Tabernacle provided a way for the children of Israel to remember God’s faithfulness in the past, application of the Tabernacle today offers Christians a meaningful devotional place of safety, intimacy, and recharge. More than a study, An Invitation to Delight is a practical guide to experiencing God and to becoming more intimate with Jesus. You will discover you are no longer content with surface living and routine check-ins with God. As your time of spiritual solitude becomes more meaningful, you’ll find yourself living intentionally and counterculturally, reaching up to him in faith and stretching out your hands in love.

Description : ""Scripture On Scripture: The Book of Revelation"" is a Bible commentary written to explain this book of the Bible verse-by-verse, while also demonstrating how this book fits with the rest of Scripture. The Book of Revelation is one of the most unique and interesting books in all of the Bible. There is much debate between Christians about whose interpretation of Revelation is correct. This commentary is written from the perspective that the book of Revelation describes those things that are yet to come in the future, and most likely the near future. This commentary is written with several key beliefs in mind, namely, that Jesus Christ promised to literally return to rule over the Earth, that His return will be preceded by a seven year Tribulation Period of judgment from God upon the Earth, and that this Tribulation Period will be initiated by a supernatural Rapture of His Church from the Earth.

Description : Great stories. Everyone loves them, and long before they were officially recognized as "God's Word," the accounts in our present-day Bible were preserved and passed along because they were great stories. They had all the essential ingredients: great characters, heroism, villainy, and the triumph of the human spirit. And, at the heart of each, there was the same profound message: we have a God who is passionately in love with us and cannot rest until we show that same passionate love to one another. This is what Jim Philipps wants his readers, and catechists in particular, to understand and share. He guides them through Bible basics by sharing the stories of remarkable men and women in the Old and New Testaments. He explores the intriguing parables of Jesus, as well as stories from Acts of the Apostles and the adventures of St. Paul. Finally he takes a reverent look at the scriptural basis of a storytelling tool that has caught generations of Christians in its power--the rosary, and in particular the reflections on the "mysteries of light," which tell the story of the ministry of Jesus. Each brief chapter includes a bit of Bible scholarship to help readers place the story in its proper context; a reflection that offers a deeper experience of the story; and a series of questions and activities that make personal connections to everyday life. This is a great introduction to the Bible and its stories and a wonderful resource for catechists and all who want to share and explore these stories with others.

This allows the reader to make their own composite picture in their mind and draw their own conclusions. (All scripture is from KJV of the Bible)

Description : Revelation, by any modern standard, is a strange book. It has intrigued and perplexed readers through the centuries, and all too often has fallen victim to fanciful interpretations. Although it may seem mysterious and impenetrable to us today, it represents a distinct message in language and imagery that was familiar to the original readers, woven together into a beautiful tapestry of twenty-two interconnected chapters. The Book of Revelation: The Rest of the Story demonstrates that the key to understanding the message of Revelation is found in this intricate relationship between the seven “letters” and the rest of the book, with the visions of Revelation 4–22 building on, fleshing out, and driving home each of the messages to the seven churches in Revelation 2–3. In the end, Revelation proves to be not primarily a guide to how things are going to unfold at the end of the age, but rather a profound call to a life of radical devotion to Jesus regardless of one’s circumstances.
