For years people would ask author, Jim Knotek, his opinion of The Mark of the Beast—666, Armageddon, the Millennium and other topics in the Book of Revelation. He was convinced that Revelation is a book of historical and prophetical parallels, not a chapter by chapter chronological or linear account. Chapter twelve focuses on the birth of Jesus Christ, which is in the middle of the book! How could that be if it were a linear account? Furthermore, there are several events that are described more than once, paralleling one another.
The rapture, which is a coined word from the 1800s is not a biblical word. What about the Seven Years of Tribulation? That statement is nowhere to be found in the Bible. If we are to understand the Apostle John's Revelation, we must allow scripture to interpret scripture. We cannot use current events, as many authors have done. All of their books have become outdated as time passes. Truly, there must be a key to help us understand Revelation more clearly.
This book is an enlargement of Pastor Jim Knotek's previous book, Unlocking the Mystery of Revelation. It is written in laymen's term and is an excellent commentary for teachers and pastors who many have hesitated to teach a class on Revelation.
Pastor Knotek is also the author of Angels and Miracles, Grief and Hope, a book that was written in tribute to his wife, Ruth, who departed to be with her Lord in 2010 due to Alzheimer’s disease.
