The third novel in Simon Scarrow's best-selling Roman series. After a series of bloody battles, Camulodunum (modern-day Colchester) has fallen to the invading Roman army. The Emperor has returned to Rome, leaving the fearless Centurion Macro and his young Optio, Cato, to rest and regroup, along with the rest of the Second Legion. As their leader, General Plautius, plans the next phase of their campaign, word arrives that the ship carrying his family to join him was wrecked in a storm off the south coast.

In Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah does what no prophecy expert has done before. He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players--the exiled, the martyrs, the elders, the victor, the king, the judge, the 144,000, the witnesses, the false prophet, and the beast.

This work totally ignores the factual history between 30 AD and 70 AD. The tale loops and spins through the imaginations of denominational heresy which again ignores the tribulation as recorded in the Bible and by historians such a Flavius Josephus who observed, experienced, and recorded the great tribulation from his own experiences.

Dispensationalists ignore the plain facts that all but one of the apostles were murdered. The apostle John warned and prophesied to the church of HIS generation concerning the things were about to come them.

Revelation 1:9 John, both your brother and companion in the TRIBULATION and kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was on the island that is called Patmos for the word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Mathew chapters 23 and 24 recorded the repeated warnings from Jesus to HIS GENERATION; not some unnamed future generation.

This work follows the path of an imaginary future dispensation while ignoring the great tribulation of 66 to 70 AD; the final days of Jesus generation.

This work casts another blanket of darkness upon the many who are ignorant of the past history of Jesus generation. This is easy believing fiction; a heresy of truth. I can not recommend this work.

Preparedness is our responsibility as believers in Yeshua. He told us about preparation over and over thru His parables. In summary, the prepared prevail. Preparation is physical and spiritual. Prophecy is redemptive and if we believe it, we should appropriate that belief with action that produces spiritual and physical yield.

This book totally ignores the facts that Matthew chapters 23 and 24 were directed to THAT generation; Jesus generation, and ALL of those warnings to THAT generation did occur during the AD 60’s and came to a head in AD 70.

The problem is the book tries to manipulate scripture to fit a doctrinal dispensation, while totally ignoring history.
The Kingdom of God HAS come unto us who trust in Christ; And we have a duty to proclaim and expand the Kingdom. In fact; In the last few verses of Matthew Jesus presented his final instructions to HIS generation.
Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

That age ended in AD 70 with the total destruction of the Jewish Temple (as Prophesied by Jesus). So my thoughts on this work and so many others is to get out of the practice of twisting scripture to fit a doctrine, and study the history and culture of THAT generation for ALL of the prophetic warnings in Matthew, chapters 23 and 24 did blossom and THAT Old Covenant with Israel has ended.

For years, Christians have been asking, "If you died tonight, do you know where you would go?" It turns out that many believers have been giving the wrong answer. It is not heaven. Wright outlines the present confusion about a Christian's future hope and shows how it is deeply intertwined with how we live today. Wright asserts that Christianity's most distinctive idea is bodily resurrection, and provides a magisterial defense for a literal resurrection of Jesus. Wright then explores our expectation of "new heavens and a new earth".

This work is not structured around Daniel’s prophecies but rather; this work is structured around the fallacy of dispensationalism: A fallacy which began in the 1830s.

Specifically this fallacy orbits the works of Hal Lindsey. The author has ignored the historical events which led to the fulfillment of Matthew chapters 23 and 24 in 70 AD.

Romans is the definitive statement of Christian doctrine - the most comprehensive book in the New Testament. Its impact on history is unequaled. This is the first in a trilogy (Galatians, Hebrews) on Habakkuk 2:4 - "the just shall live by faith" - which later became the mantra of the reformation. It has an international outlook: As a Roman citizen, and with both Hebrew and Greek culture of history, religion, philosophy, poetry, science, music, etc., Paul's Epistle to the Romans is the most profound writing that exists anywhere.

Although it is a foundational confession for all Christians, much of the theological significance of Jesus’s identity as “the Son of God” is often overlooked or misunderstood. Moreover, this Christological concept stands at the center of today’s Bible translation debates and increased ministry efforts to Muslims.

Pastor-teacher John MacArthur helps listeners understand Jesus' parables and how they relate to the whole of his message. Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables he told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so his people might comprehend his message about the kingdom of God clearly.

A misleading title. All of Jesus parables combined can’t be more than thirty pages, but somehow the author has added another two hundred and fifty more pages of repetitive jargon to insert his own doctrine amidst a flood of endless mind numbing repetition. I can not recommend this book.
