Product Description

Why study the mysterious writings in Revelation? Does the end of the story really matter? No book in Scripture has been more misunderstood or misinterpreted than John's prophecy. Pastor John MacArthur removes doubt and the cloud of obscurity to reveal the only New Testament text that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who heed its message. This book is compiled from the two best-selling volumes from the MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series.

Publisher's Description

"The end of the world is coming." From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society's nervous fascination with the future. Whether it's a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect- at least for those who have no idea what it will be like.

For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we actually look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world.

All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian's devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

    Unfortunately too many in this day and age have accepted futurism and preterism when it come s the interpretation of Daniel and Revelation. The Reformers followed true historicism principles which properly lead to correct conclusions. THe scriptures are not primarily about the Jews, but Jesus Christ Who is the Answer to all questions concerning humanity and sin.

    We are using this book as a Bible Study along with John MacArthur's book, "Revelation" which lines up well with the book "Because the Time is Near". The book is an excelent read even if you aren't doing a Bible Study class.

    This is a good introductory commentary to the book of Revelations. It is Premil & Pretrib, written in a very easy to read format. It is a popular commentary that anyone can pick up and profit from immensely.
