Could recently fulfilled Biblical prophecy and significant recent events indicate that the countdown to Revelation has begun? Author John Claeys (Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary), a long-time student of Bible prophecy, has keenly watched developments in the Middle East line up to usher in God's "day of the Lord," a special seven-year era immediately preceding Jesus' return to establish God's kingdom on the earth. As a result, Claeys felt compelled to present a clear, chronological presentation of near-future events described in the Bible in order to help people prepare for Christ's return.This book has been written in such a clear format, it could have been entitled, "Prophecy for Dummies," as those knowing little about the Bible will be able to clearly understand God's plan for the future by reading its presentation. In addition, avid students of Bible prophecy will be amazed at the fascinating insights offered in this work. But be warned: exposure to this information could be life-changing, moving the reader to draw near to the One responsible for orchestrating the incredible events described in this book.
As one reviewer wrote, "Author John Claeys takes readers on a journey into the near future where they encounter the ultimate battle of good versus evil-of Satan's king of the world overcoming the prophets of God, of war breaking out in heaven and of the armies of the earth banding together to launch an assault upon God's King as He comes to the earth to claim His kingdom. . . [This book] is a careful exposition of Biblical passages describing a real, seven-year period leading to the return of Jesus Christ to the earth" (Dr. Earl Radmacher, theologian, author, general editor of the NKJV Study Bible).
The story opens with a brief period in which the world will believe it has achieved "peace and security," but then "sudden destruction" will occur setting off wars, God's judgments and a very unique seven-year period which will lead to the return of Christ to establish God's kingdom upon the earth. This is the first of many twists and turns in this true plot of the future. Surprises include the fate of two prophets who will powerfully serve God, another regarding the incredible and lightening ascent of Satan's man from apparent obscurity in the Middle East.
This will spiral into worldwide rule, war breaking out in heaven, 144,000 of God's people fanning out across the globe to reach the nations in spite of Satan attempting to eliminate them and the nations of the earth squaring off to battle against Christ Himself at His return. But with all of the surprises and the adventure of this story, it is really about God accomplishing His kingdom plan, even through Satanic conflict and resistance-for the good of believers and for the good of the world. It is a story of triumph, hope and inspiration.
In the epilogue, the author answers the question regarding how soon this seven-year period may come upon the world. With solid reasoning and facts, Claeys begins by answering the objection that we cannot know when this era will appear. Then, as an attorney arguing his case, Claeys lays out the evidence which indicates this period may dawn sooner than we think.
There are many books depicting the end of the world, along with many movies displaying imagined scenes of destruction on December 21, 2012, but Apocalypse 2012: The Ticking of the End Time Clock by John Claeys gives readers an accurate description of a pre-tribulation view disproving the Mayan calendars claims of catastrophe. Claeys pieces together evidence from Scripture and science to disprove the myth of 2012. Claeys is both a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and Dallas Theological Seminary, and has pursued doctoral work at Phoenix Seminary.
Apocalypse 2012 provides a climactic overview of the End Times, starting with a pre-tribulation rapture and ending with Christs victory and reign on earth. Whats unique about this book is how Claeys combines prophecies from both Testaments to predict meticulously when and where Satan will use his instruments of destruction on the world, along with how Jesus Christ will rescue his saints and destroy Satan. Claeys provides beneficial timelines and a glossary of endnotes for further reading. He explains the locations of where these many events will occur, such as the Mediterranean Sea and the campaign of the King of the North.
Readers should note Apocalypse 2012 is written as a theological study of the End Times instead of an epic story like the Left Behind novels. At times the book can feel like it repeats itself, but only with the intention of connecting events and explaining their purposes. Overall Apocalypse 2012 gives an accurate depiction of the pre-tribulation view of the future, along with scriptural support. The repetitive nature will have readers frustrated at times, but will provide a better recollection of the events. Tom Vick, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
