Book Description: An exciting look into the events of
Jesus' Second Coming, a subject of much interest at this time of the coming millenium.
Just as the Spring Feast of Passover was prophetic of the First Coming of Jesus, God
provided in the Fall Feasts clues to Jesus' Second Coming. Viewed in the light of Jesus,
the Feasts of the Lord are not so many strange rituals that the Jewish people observed
back in the Old Testament. They are connecting points to other revelations in His Word, as
well as the evidence that the Word is Divine in its authorship. Each part fits perfectly
into the other and they all point to Him in whom the love of God was manifested. It is our
goal to provide you with an understanding of the Feasts and with this information we will
take you into the book of Revelation where you will begin to see the fulfillment of Jesus'
work through the Feasts.
From the Back Cover: If the grotesque beasts and utter
destruction cause your stomach to swim and all the angels flying about make your head
buzz, this study on the Revelation of Jesus Christ recorded by John is the book for you.
This text will bring clear understanding for both the casual and serious
scholar. It will also bring surprising answers to questions you may have never thought to
- Why didn't Jesus know the day of his return?
- What did Jesus really mean when he said, "It is finished"?
- Why the lake of fire?
- What's being served at the Wedding Supper?
While arguments about the time of the rapture and the identity of the beast have
been focused upon by many, the glorious message of this Revelation has been largely
We are confident when you complete this study, the last book of the Bible will
become a familiar favorite.
I have several books and commentaries related to Revelation in my home
library. The authors of every one of them approach this book of the Bible
with a specific rapture scenario in mind (i.e., pre-, mid-, or post-trib).
Some commentators, unfortunately, will arrange, re-arrange, pre-arrange,
twist and manipulate the various verses of Revelation to fit their basic
rapture scenario. The authors of "Unlocking the Mysteries of Revelation"
have put aside such scenarios and opinions and have allowed the Feasts
of the Lord to direct their study of Scripture. As the Spring Feasts were
completely and perfectly fulfilled by Jesus with His First Coming, it is
logical to conclude that the same will occur with the Fall Feasts at Christ's
Second Coming. It is this avenue that Unlocking the Mysteries of
The authors first provide background material on the tabernacle and the
spring and fall feasts. In Chapter 3, a "Passover/Resurrection Chart" is
presented that is accompanied by one of the clearest and best
explanations dealing with the specific day of the week that Christ was
crucified on that I have ever read. This is followed by two very
informative and interesting chapters: Marriage & Adultery and Kingship.
With the information that these chapters provide, it is the authors' intent to
give their readers a basic understanding of the Feasts that will hopefully
lead to greater insight into the book of Revelation -- insight that will
"unlock" passages of Scripture that may have been a "mystery" before.
The book is in large format that allows readers to jot down personal notes
and information. In addition to this, there are "key" and "lock" symbols in
the margins -- an interesting and unique feature that highlight important
words or concepts.
If you are looking for specific answers to problematic passages in
Revelation from the authors, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. As stated in
the Introduction, the goal of "Unlocking the Mysteries of Revelation" is not
to provide quick answers to such questions, but to point the readers in the
right direction by providing the necessary tools for further study. It is
specifically this concept that makes this particular book stand out from all
the others that focus on Revelation. So if you are looking for a new
approach to your study of the last Book of the Bible, then "Unlocking the
Mysteries of Revelation" is for you.
