Christ: The Angel of God.Christ: The Battle BowChrist: A Goodly CedarSince the time that I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour in 1976, I have heard it said that He was the focus of the Bible. I have never doubted that. I have heard it said that Jesus Christ was the subject of each book of the Bible, including the Old Testament. I struggled with that, not because it was untrue, but because no one in my theological circle submitted proof that it was true. This book is proof that Jesus Christ can be found in each book of the Old Testament. Therefore, Jesus Christ is available to become the subject of any book of the Bible if we take this approach to the Scriptures.What is the benefit of this approach? The Lord Jesus Christ becomes more precious to our souls as we encounter the varied facets of His Person. That should be enough, but now we can gain new insights into the Godhead and the inspired Word of God. This approach provides a fresh reason to study the Bible and a new direction in sermon and lesson preparation. Personal and family devotions are given new life in Christ. A fresh breeze blows across the pages of the Old Testament.The book is arranged for ease of use. Section One contains all the designations of Christ arranged alphabetically. Section Two contains all the physical aspects of Christ arranged alphabetically. Section Three is arranged by the mentions of Christ in each book of the Old Testament.Do you have your Bible? Do you have this book? Begin your journey seeking for ..".the unsearchable riches of Christ.

From the Introduction by Merrill C. Tenney: This commentary is an attempt to make plain the meaning of Revelation. With commendable reserve, Dr. Smith has restricted himself largely to interpretation by other passages of Scripture which are related to Revelation by actual quotation or by striking parallelism. His painstaking studies of vocabulary and of related ideas make the book valuable to the earnest student of the Bible. Dr. Smith is a futurist and a premillenarian, holding that all of the Book of Revelation beginning with the fourth chapter relates to the future period of judgment known as 'the great tribulation,' which will be followed by the personal return of Christ and by the establishment of His kingdom. In this regard he is in a long line of renowned commentators, including Seiss, Gaebelein, Ottman, and others. The distinguishing feature of this commentary is its use of Biblical statistics and comparisons. The uses of important terms in the Revelation are cataloged, and their interpretation is derived from their context. The appendices contain some extensive studies of individual topics, correlating information not easily obtainable elsewhere. Dr. Smith follows a literal interpretation except where avowed symbolism demands a different procedure. He has sought to make his exposition consistent in method and in results. His use of Greek is apt, and shows a careful investigation of the underlying vocabulary of the Greek text. This commentary will probably be the mainstay of premillennial exposition for some years to come.

The Revelation is for today, to meet tomorrow. Join author, Mary E. Lewis in the most revealing story you will ever read about the Book of Revelation. Everyone knows that the Revelation of Jesus Christ has a controversial history of interpretation. But, it is much more than a study of the Antichrist and his treacherous time before the end. It is a study on how to overcome the temptations of Satan in preparation for the call to "Come up here" at Jesus' return. Jesus gave Nicodemus a clue, when he said, In truth, I say to you, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of YHVH. Nicodemus didn't understand how he could be reborn, being a full-grown man. Many have difficulty understanding that concept. That knowledge is in the Revelation given to Apostle John about fifty years after the church began. The seven letters reveal some of the problems the churches were encountering; not unlike the lack of Spirit unity in 2,000 years of church history, and differences of opinion on what being born again means.The Revelation is the culmination of all biblical prophecy, but more than that, it is about right now, and how to make YaHavah and Jesus the true center of your life. Become the light he intended you to be, when Jesus' gave his life for yours.

The book of the Revelation of Jesus ChristPlain and UnderstandableNow seems to be the time when we need to know about end time events.Jesus said, "Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without, all these things are done in parables. Mark 4:11Perhaps that is why God has chosen to write the book of Revelation with so much symbolism, and yet to us who believe in Jesus as our personal Savior, it is given to know the mysteries of God, but not without faithful study of His word.This verse by verse study of Revelation is designed to de-code much of the symbolism, by using related Old and New Testament scriptures.The prophet Daniel was told to close up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12: 9It's easy to see that Daniels prophecy is our reality. We are living in a time of modern methods of transportation and state of the art technical advancements, and yet these are perilous times of uncertainty and rapid change.God is not only the God of eternity; He is also the God of time. By His design, some things are hidden until He is ready to reveal them; and now seems to be the time when we need to know about the mysteries of God concerning end time events.Gary Alan [email protected]

Genre: Religion

A new and transforming approach to the Book of Revelation. Margaret Barker bases her study on a fresh reading of the primary sources. As an Old Testament scholar, she can read Revelation as Hebrew prophecy - ancient temple oracles which inspired Jesus and his own prophecies, and influenced the whole Jerusalem Church. Jerusalem was waiting for their Great High Priest to return and complete the Atonement at the end of the Tenth Jubilee. This expectation fuelled the revolt against Rome. Josephus, who deserted to Rome, was the false prophet. John, who escaped to Patmos, compiled Revelation as a record of the first generation. In the future, he taught, the Lord would return to his people in the Eucharist.This work illuminates the formative years of Christianity, in the social, religious and political situation of mid-first-century Palestine, in a quite remarkable way. It will have profound implications for the understanding of Christian origins and the development of Christian liturgy.

Interpreting Revelation . . . in its Proper Context Too often the Western Church views Scripture from a Greek Mind-set within the context of a Hellenized society. The Church follows a pagan, Roman solar calendar which fashions a linear, compartmentalized interpretation of the Bible-especially the Book of Revelation. Contrary to this modernist approach, the prophets and writers of the New Testament wrote the Scriptures under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit from a Hebrew cultural context. The authors lived in accordance with the Torah and the lunar Hebrew calendar. The Hebrew historical view is cyclical and the Hebrew Mind-set encompasses a complete lifestyle. The Hebrew and Greek Mind-sets differ in practice. The Hebrew is concerned with action, the Greek with knowledge. Right conduct is the ultimate concern of the Hebrew, right thinking that of the Greek. This distinction is critical because it affects how the Book of Revelation is interpreted. The end-time chronology of the Book of Revelation is not a strict linear account as is often viewed from the Hellenistic Mind-set. Through a Hebrew narrative of spiraling pictures, Revelation gives an overview of the Apocalypse followed by specific details which unveil the future of the nation of Israel, unbelievers and the body of Messiah. The Revelation of Jesus Christ is a unique, verse-by-verse account of the Book of Revelation viewed from a Hebraic Mind-set.
