Very good points were put that made this a useful read, particularly the recommendation by Corrie Ten Boom to prepare for the Tribulation , and advice by David Pawson for the same. However the idea that Jesus should return to earth for us all to see whenever we visit Jerusalem , an event that would occur, according to David Pawson, at the beginning of the Millenium
as His next advent, goes against Jesus' description of the gathering of the saints pre His glorious return to earth to rule and reign.
The book left me rather depressed.
Thought provoking study on Biblical prophecy.
This excellent, well written in-depth study scrutinises the wide range of issues relating to Biblical prophecy and the return of Jesus Christ.
Each and every subject is dealt with by analysing all the differing viewpoints/schools of interpretation, with the writer approaching such with due reference to Scripture and subsequently presenting his own personal views as & when appropriate in relation to Israel, the Church, the interpretation of the book of Revelation, the "Rapture" and the "Millennium" etc..
At the outset the reader's attention is drawn to what is described as the absolute accuracy of Biblical prophecy. The book citing that the declaration of future events is a major feature of the Holy Bible itself.
As the writer elaborates, the book relates how over a quarter of all the verses in the Bible contain a prediction about the future. Predictions cited as pertaining to personal, political, social, environmental, moral and meteorological issues, together with many returning to the physical return of Jesus Christ.
The writer further declaring that there are 737 separate prophecies made in Scripture, with some mentioned only once but others being mentioned up to many hundreds of times.
Of the 737 prophecies mentioned, the book reveals that 594 (over 80%) of these have already been accurately fulfilled. The remaining prophecies, which relate to the "end of the world" (which has obviously not happened yet) are shown to be taking shape at the time of writing.
This study provides clarity and insight to these issues. Whilst many readers will undoubtedly have differing opinions to some of those presented in this work, this should not prevent individuals from reading this well presented, in-depth study of an increasingly relevant subject.
Fairly strong arguments for a very Biblical position.
Pawson holds a fairly similar view to myself, so I suppose I would support this book. The first few chapters are a reproduction of a booklet he had already published on the Second Coming. Those who have already read that will probably want to skip this part.
Unlike some writers, Pawson examines issues
relating to Dispensationalism. His arguments are strong and Biblical, making a good case for Historic Premillennialism. He does use a little unconventional terminology, however, which is irritating.
