Before the end of time, there will be a short period when Satan will be free to cause great tribulation and distress to the people on earth. God has foreknowledge and has determined the future events that will take place during Satan’s time on earth. Revelation was written to warn mankind what God has determined for the future. Those who have remained faithful to God will not be harmed during the tribulation and distress. Revelation and the Antichrist is the climax of the story of God’s redeeming plan.

I chose books that had different views of the symbolism as long as they based their views on Scripture. I also used resources that dug deep into the text to give to get a better understanding of the grammar, history, geography and customs of the time John wrote the letter. Even though our study is finished I will always be on the lookout for more study aids on the book of Revelation.
When I came across the book Revelation and the Antichrist by William Edward Dewberry I was intrigued because I assumed he would dig into Scripture, Old and New Testaments, and give an in depth look at how the role the Antichrist plays in the book of Revelation. I was looking forward to some exposition on those difficult passages concerning the timeline of events to take place in the end times. Unfortunately I was disappointed.
As I read I was put off by how quickly I was able to read this commentary. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy books that are easy to read. The problem is that when reading a commentary on Revelation I expect to take an occasional pause to digest and meditate what the author is saying. That didn't happen here. Throughout the book he would site a passage then give a brief explanation on that passage with no real depth given. This happened over and over. I was expecting meat and got a snack.
He is an amillennialist (the view that we are currently in the millennial reign of Christ) but doesn't give much reason why. As to his rapture view, not much is given. He does discuss dispensations so I am assuming he takes those views as well.
I wish I could recommend this book but I can't. There are other worthy commentaries on Revelation (here is my review of one) that you should purchase if you are looking for an aid to help you understand this important book.

One of the main things I disagree with is that God locked Satan and the demons in the Abyss about the time of the start of the church in the first century and God will release them at the time of the antichrist. To me this is saying that Satan and the demons are not active now, which I do not believe is the truth. I would not recommend this book for new believers.
