Every Christian should be aware of the biblical prophesies that are about to unfold, such as the incredible calamities of the tribulation; the mark of the beast; who will live and who will die; the role of the two witnesses; the triumphant appearance of the warrior from heaven; the never-ending delights of the eternal kingdom; plus, many more startling and inspiring events of the coming times! Here is your opportunity to enjoy the greatest drama ever told, as seen through the pen of one of the truly great Bible teachers of our times.
When Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886-1984) was first deciding on a career, he considered becoming an actor. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind. Instead of the stage, God called Herbert to the pulpit, where as a pastor, Bible teacher, and author of more than fifty books, he touched the hearts and lives of millions of people. Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute's fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London. In 1955, he returned to England, where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States, where he spent the final years of his life in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son, the Rev. Herbert Lockyer Jr., a Presbyterian minister who became his editor.
