This is one of the simplest books to have been written on Bible prophecy. It is concise, easily read and is to the point with no use of elaborate terms that might confuse the student of prophecy. It takes the prayer of John the Apostle and breaks it down into the questions that might have been upon his mind as he brought the book of Revelation to a close. It spans the broad scope of events that are included in his prayer with commentary on each aspect. Some students of Bible prophecy have difficulty in placing events in their correct dispensations, and thus are confused by what they read. This book helps to alleviate that problem. That being said, it is not the purpose of this book to take the place of Bible study. Students of Bible prophecy should not expect a short-cut to understanding prophetic teaching by reading this book because there is no short-cut to understanding prophecy aside from studying the Bible. May our Lord help you as you read this book in conjunction with His word. And remember, when you think there is a contradiction always rely upon Scripture. The year was about A.D. 95 when the Roman emperor Domitian banished an aged man into exile on Patmos, a rocky and barren island off the coast of Asia Minor, or modern Turkey. The aged man was the Apostle John, the beloved disciple of Jesus. John was probably in his nineties when he was sent to Patmos, and the time spent there proved to be the most important of his life. During that time spent on Patmos Jesus Christ revealed to John an absolutely incredible scenario having to do with a very specific time in the future; a time of unbelievable events and unprecedented trouble. And, by the way, a time that is immediate to our own future. The Book of Revelation is not the entire account of God's future dealings with the world, but it is no doubt the most intriguing. It is mostly about a period of seven years known commonly as the Tribulation Period, or the 70th Week of Daniel chapter nine. Basically, Jesus gave John, and us, a snapshot of the horror that will come upon this Christ-rejecting world once the church is taken out at the event we call The Rapture. But, not only did Jesus reveal the horrors of the tribulation, but He also informed us that the Messianic Age the Jews have been looking forward to for several millennia is to last one thousand years. Though the Messianic dispensation is well described in the Old Testament, this is the first time we have an actual time period associated with it. This unprecedented revelation of Jesus Christ must have caused John to wonder in amazement about all the glorious things that were coming at some point in the future. After he completed the book as Jesus had dictated it, John penned his closing remarks in what seems to be an attempt to put into writing an emotion, a visceral feeling that was nearly overwhelming his heart. Jesus ended His book with the words, "yes, I am coming quickly." And, it is almost as if a crescendo of emotion came forth from the very well-spring of John's being as he responded, "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus" (Revelation 22:20).
