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.

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

John Claeys is an author who has poured out his life for others and now is able to share biblical truth in a very realistic and simplistic form that all can understand.
rd owen5 Stars Out Of 5July 22, 2010rd owenRead this book . . . please! John Claeys makes it easy to understand God's plan for the earth. It is a must read for anyone interested in Bible prophecy. But the book is more than Bible prophecy. Since reading Apocolypse 2012, I have found myselfpraying more, reading God's Word more and thinking more about how short time is to prepare for God's Kingdom. Again, read the book. You will be glad you did.
Becky5 Stars Out Of 5June 5, 2010BeckyThis book has helped me tremendously!! I always had a hard time understanding the prophecy part of the Bible which is more than half of it. And this book has allowed me loads of understanding...I can now put into perspective other parts of the Bible as well..It is a MUST read! God wants His children to know what is going on, He puts the resources out there for us but we have to read them...I am looking forward to another book to soon follow!! -Becky
connie5 Stars Out Of 5June 4, 2010connieThis book is awesome! It not only clears up some of the popular hype out there, but brings us back to reality regarding what is actually going on in the world around us. The author, John Claeys, sheds light on what God's word clearly indicates for our future. The Old Test. prophetic scriptures and particularly,the book of Revelation are tied together to make perfect sense. Finally, we can see how the bible fits together and how it is so relavant to our lives now and into tomorrow. Excellant,fast-paced,eye-opening,even encourageing read- a real must!
