Because Israel is a major subject of prophecy in both the Old and New Testaments, the idea that prophecies about this nation will not be literally fulfilled was a major stumbling block to prophetic interpretation. The continuing controversy underscores the fact that unless a person understands God's program for Israel, he will not understand God's program for the church or for the world.
Jesus said, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden." The world's need for strong and convicted leadership in our time cannot be underestimated. The body of Christ is God's primary instrument on the earth today, and our greatest responsibility as a people of God. A quick look through scripture reveals to us that many men and women responded to a divine initiative in the world. Seeing the future means nothing if no appropriate action is taken. Noah for instance, saw a coming flood and prepared an ark. Moses saw a coming deliverance and spoke to Pharoah. Peter recognized God's desire to release the gospel to the Gentiles and preached in the home of Cornelius. This has become one of the primary reasons why this author felt the need to write :"The Expanded Edition of Revealing Eschatology." For in this edition it begins at the very beginning, The Lord's creation of the universe, mankind, and God's salvation plan for mankind, from Genesis to Revelation, with further in depth scientific, historical and Biblical evidences of God's salvation plan. Issues and topics not given in the author's first book "Revealing Eschatology."
What does the Bible really say about the end times-and what does it mean for us today? Revealing Eschatology II tackles the fundamental question of our time in clear language designed for everyone from Christian scholars to first-time Bible readers. This updated and expanded edition of Henry Gagne's breakthrough efforts through the years presents stunning evidence of God's salvation plan for mankind. You'll discover:
