Are we living in the end times? Is it possible that the players depicted in the book of Revelation could be out in force today? And if they are, would you know how to recognize them?
In Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah does what no prophecy expert has done before. He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players—the exiled, the martyrs, the elders, the victor, the king, the judge, the 144,000, the witnesses, the false prophet, and the beast.
One by one, Dr. Jeremiah delves into their individual personalities and motives, and the role that each plays in biblical prophecy. Then he provides readers with the critical clues and information needed to recognize their presence and power in the world today.
The stage is set, and the curtain is about to rise on Earth’s final act. Will you be ready?
Bill Wiese saw the searing flames of hell, felt total isolation, and experienced the putrid and rotting stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons, and finally, the strong hand of God lifting him out of the pit.
"Tell them I am coming very, very soon!"
Wiese’s visit to the devil’s lair lasted just twenty-three minutes, but he returned with vivid details etched in his memory. Since this life-changing ordeal, he has spent the last seven years studying the Scriptures to find answers and has listed more than 150 Bible verses referencing hell.
Everyone is curious about the afterlife, and now Wiese shares his insights to commonly asked questions such as:
Is hell a literal burning place? Where is hell? Do you have a body in hell? Are there Degrees of punishment in hell? Are there children in hell? Can Demons torment people in hell? Can "good" people go to hell?"Even if you don’t believe my story, I hope you will believe the Scriptures and avoid hell just the same."
Newsweek called renowned minister Timothy Keller "a C.S. Lewis for the twenty-first century" in a feature on his first book, The Reason for God. In that book, he offered a rational explanation of why we should believe in God. Now, in The Prodigal God, Keller takes his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity and uses the parable of the prodigal son to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.
Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.
Understanding prophecy can be difficult and confusing. This book takes away all of the mystery—and the intimidation. It is user-friendly for the layperson, yet remarkably complete for the scholar.

What does the Bible say about the end times that lead to the return of Jesus Christ? The major views on the end times that can divide Christians are examined in the Four Views of the End Times ebook, which can be read in 30 minutes or less. This fascinating ebook shows four different Revelation time lines and diagrams, a definition of the four major end time views, supporting Scriptures, a time line of the view's popularity, and a sampling of Christian leaders supporting the view.
The events leading up to the return of Jesus Christ can be a controversial subject. Four Views of the End Times addresses end time eschatology, outlining the four major views regarding events leading up to the second coming of Christ. Below is the outline applied to each of the four Revelation time lines with several examples:
• What is emphasized by each end time view
• Which Scripture references are used to support the position
• The time period for the view's main popularity; for example:
•Dispensational Premillennialism - Gained acceptance in the 1800's and is still widespread
•Historic Premillennialism - The earliest view following the time of the apostles
•Amillennialism - Emerged in the 5th century; championed by St. Augustine
•Postmillennialism - Became popular in the 1800's but decreased in the early 1900's as a result of a world war and economic depression
• A graphic time line showing the order of events held by each view
• A sampling of Christian leaders sharing the viewpoint:
•Dispensational Premillennialism - Dr. Charles Stanley, Rev. Tim Lahaye, Hal Lindsay
•Historic Premillennialism - Justin Martyr 100-165 AD, John Warwick Montgomery - current
•Amillennialism - Martin Luther, John Calvin
•Postmillennialism - Jonathan Edwards, R.C. Sproul
The Four Views of the End Times ebook is packed with information regarding what Jesus and Paul taught about the end times and their viewpoints and biblical references are presented in way that is easy to understand. The ebook also includes a list of important terms and definitions, such as:
• Church age
• The Great Tribulation
The Four Views of the End Times is a "must-have" for anyone who is interested in the end times and the return of their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The claim at the heart of the Christian faith is that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. But this is not what the original disciples believed during Jesus’s lifetime—and it is not what Jesus claimed about himself. How Jesus Became God tells the story of an idea that shaped Christianity, and of the evolution of a belief that looked very different in the fourth century than it did in the first.
A master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, Ehrman reveals how an apocalyptic prophet from the backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God Almighty, Creator of all things. But how did he move from being a Jewish prophet to being God? In a book that took eight years to research and write, Ehrman sketches Jesus’s transformation from a human prophet to the Son of God exalted to divine status at his resurrection. Only when some of Jesus’s followers had visions of him after his death—alive again—did anyone come to think that he, the prophet from Galilee, had become God. And what they meant by that was not at all what people mean today.
Written for secular historians of religion and believers alike, How Jesus Became God will engage anyone interested in the historical developments that led to the affirmation at the heart of Christianity: Jesus was, and is, God.

"This classic interpretation of the book of Daniel, dealing with the prophecy of the ninth chapter in particular, has long been considered a standard volume in the field, often quoted, and original in its fresh exposition of Daniel's seventy weeks.... This book belongs on the shelf of every pastor and layman intelligent in the study of the prophetic Word." (Dr. John F. Walvoord)
"This is the ablest explanation of Daniel's seventy weeks and related subjects in existence." Dr. Frederick A. Tatford
"This book contains so many hidden gems, it should be read slowly to mine all it value. "(Michael D. Fortner, author of Discoveries in Bible Prophecy, and The Beast and False Prophet Revealed)
Since this translation and that of R. H. Charles were first published, several copies of the Book of Enoch were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, which further connects the book with the Jews of Palestine in the 1st century.
This translation of the Book of Enoch was once popular, so I have updated the language to make it more readable today by replacing archaic words we no longer use such as "execrate" with the modern equivalent, and changing the Roman Numerals with modern numbers.

This biblical, thorough treatment of end-times prophecy from an internationally respected Bible teacher is positioned to become the definitive word on the last days, both for Derek Prince's loyal readers and for many new ones who will catch the vision of the glorious victory to come.
America teeters on a precipice. In the midst of financial turmoil, political uncertainty, declining morality, the constant threat of natural disasters, and myriad other daunting challenges, many wonder what the future holds. Will history’s greatest democracy stage a miraculous comeback, returning to the forefront of the world’s economic and spiritual stage? Can America’s religious past be repeated today with a third Great Awakening? Or will the rise of China, Russia, and other nations, coupled with the US’s internal struggles, send her into a decline from which there can be no return?
Implosion helps readers understand the economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century, through the lens of biblical prophecy.
While many of the questions that people ask about Revelation are sparked by sensationalistic interpretations of the book, these questions also point to major issues concerning our understanding of God and the future, death and life, judgment and hope. Rather than simply dismissing popular interpretations of Revelation, Koester first considers how these approaches work and why they are problematic. The rest of the book looks carefully at each section of Revelation, keeping the situations of first-century and twenty-first-century readers in mind. Koester's exceptional grasp of Revelation's history, text, and purpose allows him to present the message of Revelation in a way that is clear, engaging, and meaningful to modern readers.

Regardless of their stance, readers will find helpful insight as Riddlebarger evaluates the main problems facing each of the major millennial positions and cautions readers to be aware of the spiraling consequences of each view.

-error-free transmission of text
In his early Spiritual life Arthur Pink a devout dispensationalist. His views started to change in the late 1920's and in his book A Study of Dispensationalism he discusses his core complaint against dispensationalism, that it destroys the unity and applicability of Scripture.
Arthur Walkington Pink was an English Christian evangelist and Biblical scholar known for his staunchly Calvinist and Puritan-like teachings. Though born to Christian parents, prior to conversion he migrated into a Theosophical society (an occult gnostic group popular in England during that time), and quickly rose in prominence within their ranks.
His conversion came from his father's patient admonitions from Scripture. It was the verse, Proverbs 14:12, 'there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death,' which particularly struck his heart and compelled him to renounce Theosophy and follow Jesus.
The study of prophecy inspires elaborate timelines and speculation about which world leader might rise to power in the last days. But meanwhile, it’s far too easy to miss the significant prophetic signs contained in stories of biblical characters, in God’s creation, and in the lives and actions of today’s Israelis and Palestinians.
The Holy Land Key opens our eyes to little-known aspects of prophecy, including:
· God’s master plan revealed in the seven Feasts of the Lord
· The ingathering of God’s people, and the ways Israelis are hearing from God today
· Significant prophetic patterns discovered in the lunar cycle
· Awe-inspiring testimonies to God’s glory spelled out in the night sky
· Glimpses of God’s future kingdom revealed in the stories of well-known figures from Scripture
For decades, author and pastor Ray Bentley has partnered with God’s people in Israel, including Judea and Samaria, the area known as the West Bank. There, he witnesses the fulfillment of prophecy firsthand. This is your introduction to prophetic signs that God reveals in sometimes unexpected ways. He does not want us to miss the work he is doing to usher in the coming Kingdom.

A number of prophets had a glimpse of the future, but God gave only one prophet a precise calendar of the end-times events that will affect the current generation.
Writing more than 2,500 years ago, Daniel described a series of cataclysmic events and the signs that will precede the end times. According to prophecy expert Grant R. Jeffrey, many of the signs that Daniel pointed to are visible in our world today.
Daniel’s vision reveals startling details about the identity of the coming Antichrist, his political career, his death, and his Satanic resurrection. After completing an exhaustive study of Daniel’s prophecies, Dr. Jeffrey presents a detailed description of the Antichrist’s rise as world dictator, the mark of the beast, and the political maneuvering that will set the stage for global government. In light of the Hebrew calendar and the cycle of Jewish festivals, Dr. Jeffrey uncovered precise dates for major apocalyptic events, including a timeline for the Antichrist’s rise to power, the major events of the Tribulation, and the timing of the Battle of Armageddon.
God allowed Daniel to see the world we will soon live in as we approach the time for the return of the Messiah. Now learn exactly what Daniel knew.

Story Behind the Book
“The one biblical truth that has affected my Christian life more than any other is the rapture of the church—the belief that Jesus could come at any moment to take His people away to be with Him. It deeply affects how I view my life, this world, and how I live each day. I have always wanted to write a book that clearly explains the truth of the any-moment rapture and how it should affect our daily lives. I’m grateful that the good people at Multnomah have given me the opportunity to share my passion for this blessed hope with others." — Mark Hitchcock

Hill encourages Christians both to take seriously and to think sensibly about the hope of God's ultimate victory.
