Revelation: Unlocking the Future
From the 21st Century Biblical Commentary Series
by Ed Hindson with Mal Couch
WILL THE HUMAN RACE SURVIVE IN THE FUTURE?
EVERYONE IS CURIOUS ABOUT THE FUTURE.
There is something in human nature that wants to know what is going to happen next. God speaks to the need in our lives by revealing the future before it happens. That process is called a prophecy of future events. This book is a study of the prophecies in the book of Revelation.
The book of Revelation is the grand and noble conclusion to the Bible. It captives our attention, stirs our imagination, and points us to our glorious future destiny. It shows the living relationship between the risen Christ and His Bride, the Church. It also records the final days of this world and reveals the glorious new world yet to come. The book of Revelation gives us hope for the future when God will make “all things new” (Rev.21:5).
Dr. Hindson simplifies the message of the Revelation so that you can easily understand it for yourself. He surveys the general content of this captivating book of prophecy with a view to keeping the big picture in mind, rather than getting lost in all the details. His approach is to keep the study focused on the key issues in each chapter.
The Book of Revelation has been called the epilogue of the unfolding drama of redemption. It’s God’s road map to help us understand where human history is going. In the biblical record, human history begins in a garden and ends in the eternal city. It begins with tragedy and ends with triumph. It begins with man’s failure and ends with his exaltation. In between, there stands a cross! And on that cross, Jesus Christ changed the course of human history forever.
The message of the Bible represents the timeless truth of God. As each generation seeks to apply that truth to its specific context it becomes necessary for an up-to-date commentary to be created just for them. The editors and authors of the Twenty-First Century Biblical Commentary” have endeavored to do just that. They represent conservative, evangelical, and dispensational scholarship at its best.
