This 1884 book is the most encouraging book I’ve read in the field of prophecy in a long time (and I’ve read a lot!). It is a collection of extended articles on the Second Coming, all emphasizing the literal interpretation of prophetic passages and the pre-millennial return of Christ. Authors include Joseph Seiss and Bishop J.C. Ryle of Liverpool, England. Other topics mentioned within these pages are: the pretribulational rapture of the church; the biblical dispensations; the regathering of Israel after the glorious return of Christ; the literal nature of the kingdom of God; and some pointed remarks against what today would be called the preterist view. One article by William Trotter titled “Outlines Of Prophetic Truth,” talked extensively about the church beginning on the Day of Pentecost with the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the mystery of the church that was hidden in the Old Testament economy. Trotter’s article also mentioned the failure of the church in the age of grace to live in the world without being a part of the world, and also specifically described the rapture of the church before the tribulation period. Great book!

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 […]
