Not since the completion of the scriptures in 100 A.D. has another book challenged so many religious and theological presuppositions as the book, "The Day of the LORD." With its primary message emphasizing predictive Bible prophecy, its conclusions are nonetheless biblically solid. The book's primary message is unlike anything currently in print. The author not only presents the most widely circulated views within prophecy, namely pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, post-tribulation, neo post-tribulation, the pre-wrath rapture, preterism, and historicism; the author also touches on why these views are biblically flawed when contrasted with the author's explosive Day of the LORD prophetic perspective. Emphasizing God's perspective of time, a subject all the other views have failed to address, the author discovered the key to resolving these critical timing discrepancies. Filled with meticulous, prophetic charts and thought-provoking, eschatological graphs, the author has also added an exhaustive bibliography that reflects the time, energy, and passion of someone who takes their Christian faith seriously. Not unlike the apostle Paul who did not need apostolic approval from those in Jerusalem to receive his divine commission to evangelize the Gentiles, likewise my impetus, direction, and passion has come from Christ himself through revelation and serious study of the scriptures. After all, the personal commitment on behalf of the author has amounted to almost half the author's sixty-three years of age-thirty years to be exact. Lest you think this statement borders on the sacrilegious, I make my appeal to Acts 5:34-39, where Gamaliel "a doctor of the law," in defense of Peter and the other apostles, said to a challenged, intimidated and fearful, religious leadership within Israel, "Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God." And I might add, time will ultimately reveal whether my prophetic conclusions are spot on or not. With specific and footnoted documentation, the author also tackles numerous humanistic undercurrents all contributing to the severe erosion of the Christian faith in America: from the Tongues and Charismatic Movement, to how Aristotelian influence has infected Western thought and the decision making process (dialecticism), to the destructive method of blaming others for your bad decisions (the blame game of psychology and psychiatry). Included elsewhere in the book, as well as in the appendices of the book, "The Day of the LORD," offers these other significant prophetic points: DANIEL'S SEVENTY WEEKS & THE DAY OF THE LORD v There are only 3.5 years remaining, not seven, according to Revelation 11:2, 3 v The period known as "the day of the Lord" inserts Daniel's 70th Week into a time gap that commenced with Israel's rejection of God under Samuel's leadership (I Samuel 8:6-8) and will end with the new heaven, the new earth, and the New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:1, 2) v See why for 36.5 years after the crucifixion the priestly practice of animal sacrifice yielded "the overspreading of abominations" which in turn produced a sacrifice that was "desolate," or empty. This quintessential act of disobedience led to the beginning of the Jewish diaspora from Palestine v The Jews have covered up and deliberately falsified their own chronology while substituting Simon Bar Kokhba (135 A.D.) as their messiah instead of Jesus Christ THE TWILIGHT OF THE LAST DAYS AND THE LAST 3.5 YEARS v The "beginning of sorrows" are the five seals of Revelation 6, while the 'trigger' is the construction of the Jewish temple ushering in the last 3.5 years THE FALLING AWAY v The "falling away" (II Thess. 2:3) started at the Incarnation and continues to the present. The falling away is from.
