This book--originally published under the title Apocalypse--is his verse-by-verse commentary on the book of Revelation. Throughout, Bullinger keeps his attention on both the immediate context of a verse, and the remote contexts of the rest of Scripture. He frequently addresses other views, and explains why he believes them to be poor understandings of the text. Some of Bullinger's other views--for example, his "ultra-dispensationalism"--come through the text every now and again, providing a more holistic look at Bullinger's theology.
Bullinger provides countless footnotes with additional research, providing readers the opportunity for further exploration. All-in-all, many readers have found their personal beliefs challenged and shaped by this book.

It is well-reasoned and not sensationalistic and therefore is recommended to supplement your study of the great Revelation of Jesus Christ. His perspective is full verbal inspiration, and a literal interpretation in the futuristic vein. At times things are rather artificially blocked off: Morris holds that the 24 elders are men, the locust-like beings of chapter 9 are demonic spirits, the two witnesses of chapter 11 are Enoch and Elijah who have waited in heaven in their natural bodies [?
Babylon in chapters 17—18 is the literal, rebuilt city of Babylon on the Euphrates as a world center of trade, communications, education, etc. Morris is fairly thorough in taking things literally and gives his reasons, but allows for symbolism, e. The overcomers are defined by John in his letter declaring "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-- our faith.
And who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? In short, overcomers are not some that are "more faithful" but are those who have faith in Jesus! Although this author is not well known like many of the writers of commentaries on the Revelation, without a doubt Garland's work is one of the more complete conservative resources available in any format and this one is available online for free or for purchase in digital format [ A Testimony of Jesus Christ - Logos Bible Software ] or as a hardbound book [ Ref.
An unusual feature of this book is that Garland explores the many connections between the visions seen by the Apostle John and previous prophetic revelation given to Old Testament prophets such as Daniel, Ezekiel, and others. There are also well over bibliographic references.

The divine throne and the sealed book, Revelation 4: Rosscup - T his is a premillennial, dispensational study which takes a thorough-going literal approach to the book. The dedication, Revelation 1: The sounding of the seven trumpets, Revelation 8:
Another interesting aspect of this commentary is that the author often discusses other interpretations of specific passages. For example, see the Revelation The hardbound version of this commentary is pages Read the reviews of this book at Amazon If you are thinking about preaching or teaching through Revelation, this commentary is a "must have! Finally, another helpful feature of this commentary is frequent use of tables see complete list on a variety of subjects to aid quick comparison such as Rosscup - Michaels takes no stand on authorship by the Apostle John, using arbitrary reasoning against it 18— He also is flimsy and misrepresenting in remarks against a futurist approach, as if simply not properly informed of how better futurist thinkers explain details, and unfair to them His bibliography does not even list Robert L.
The same seeming lack of awareness shows in discussing the , who, to Michaels, are saints out of all nations in 7: One would almost think that he author did this amillennial work without checking many interpreters who argue the hermeneutical naturalness of taking literal views in Rev.
So he often is out of touch, and limits his readers where he might have provided more representative, informed discussions. The author uses Scripture to try to explain the symbols of the book. Generally takes a literal, conservative approach but you must be a Berean Acts He has some charts which are nice but must be viewed with the same Berean mindset!

My sermon last Sunday may raise the same question. I am becoming a more hope-filled pre-millennialist.
What in the world does all this mean? After that he must be loosed for a little while. This seems to imply a time of great glory for the church and victory over evil. Post-millennialists believe that Christ will return after post the thousand-year period. At that point he will judge unbelievers and establish the new heavens and new earth. Then Christ will come. Most of the missionaries of the early modern missionary movement were post-millennialists Eliot, Brainerd, Carey, etc. The Puritans that I praised on Sunday were post-millennialist.
Their hope was that the gospel would eventually conquer the world before Christ returned. Here is an excerpt from David Brickner, the head of Jews for Jesus, in a dialogue with John Piper who has some questionable in my opinion and in Brickner's opinion teachings on the nation of Israel -. I appreciate your clear statement of belief in God's continuing purposes for ethnic Israel. I also note that you affirm, "God promised to Israel the presently disputed land from the time of Abraham onward.
As I see it, this disconnect occurs at two important points.
