I enjoyed reading Rosenberg’s novels so I was willing to take a chance on a book about his life and how he came to his prophetic views. I was somewhat disappointed. In his novels, he majored on the battle of Gog and Magog (based on Ezekiel 38 &39) and God’s rescue of Israel during that future northern invasion. In this book, Rosenberg begins to piece the other tribulation events together as well as many of his own biblical viewpoints. I thought at first that he must be a post-tribulationist because he never before mentioned the rapture. When he did finally mention it, he placed it after the battle of Gog & Magog which, to me, would have to place it at the end of the tribulation. Actually, Rosenberg does believe in a pre-tribulation rapture but thinks Gog & Magog will be within the present age and still before a pre-trib rapture! (p. 229 & 251). He also admits that he could be wrong about that! Typically, Rosenberg also becomes very ecumenical (p. 207-217) and indicates that Jews will be saved by their Jewishness, not by Jesus (229).

If the believer could say with Paul, “I determined not to know any thing among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2), he would […]
Will The Antichrist Be Muslim?June 4, 2015
One of the difficulties for Christians in apologetics is that they have to know a lot about many religions and cults, but the religions and cults only have to know about Christianity. The growing threat from Islam reminds the Christian of this very thing. That is why I was glad to receive a book exposing […]
The Coming Battle of Gog & MagogJanuary 27, 2015
Recently I overheard someone talk about the good old days of prophecy conferences when we used to fear Russia and communism. Aren’t we even closer to the Lord’s return today than we were back then? I have often said myself how those preachers from a generation ago could not have conceived a world like we […]
