WHAT WILL BE HISTORY’S NEXT GREAT EVENT?
AS WE READ the 16th chapter of the book of Revelation we will notice ‘such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth’ that swallows up the great assembled armies of the world at Armageddon. This event is the one and only ‘great day of God Almighty’.
Paralleling the Exodus of Moses, the next great event will be a worldwide Exodus event, otherwise known as the millennium.
The millennium will culminate in the Battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39, Revelation 20:7-10) and, with everyone expecting the second advent of Christ, the Antichrist will appear as a Messianic figure and deceive many. But as ‘a thief in the night’ Christ will gloriously return on that last day, in resurrection power, where death itself will be swallowed up in total victory – Hallelujah!
The Quest for Millennial Hope is more than another eschatological commentary on the Book of Revelation. It is rather a treatment of Revelation as an apologetic of the old historicist post-millennial view – the original Protestant or reformed perspective.
THIS HOPE-FILLED PERSPECTIVE IS OUR QUEST – A QUEST THAT LEADS US INTO THE CONSUMMATION OF THE EVER-GROWING KINGDOM OF GOD.
