Simply Revelation - Review and Giveaway

"As we look upon the world today, we see the uneasiness and difficulties of each nation dealing with their own problems. Jesus taught there would be distress of nations with perplexity upon the earth in the last days (Luke 21:25). One might ask the question, where are we at in the timeline concerning Bible prophecy? Jesus said in Luke 21:24. "And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled." One day as Jesus was coming into Jerusalem he looked upon the city and wept over it because he knew there was coming a day when the enemies of the Jews would come and build a trench around the city, and destroy her (Luke 19:41-44). This happened in 70 AD when the Romans came and destroyed Jerusalem, and scattered the Jews among the nations."

"On May 14, 1948 Israel became a nation once more. After the six day war of June 5-10, 1967, Israel gained Jerusalem back as their capital, and ended the control of the city by the Gentiles. Now we are waiting for the time of the Gentiles to be fulfilled which will take place at the rapture of the church. Jesus said during this time there would be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; and the sea and the waves roaring (Luke 21:25). With the invention of the telescope and the knowledge of the safe techniques such as solar filters the sun can be viewed and studied in a manner that was impossible before. Today we understand the effects of solar flares coming off the sun can have upon the earth. In 1969 man landed on the moon just two years after Jerusalem was taken by the Jews. With the help of the Hubble telescope and the internet you can find images of the Cross in the Whirlpool Galaxy, the Eye of God, and the Crown of Thorns in the constellation Indus, and the Hand of God all signs in the stars. Genesis 1:14 says, "God created lights in the firmament for the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs." In the past decade we have witnessed the effects of tsunami, and the destruction it can cause. These things happening in the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world will cause men to fear even to the point their hearts fail them (Luke 21:26)."

"Simply Revelation by author Edward L. Brownlee is a commentary on the book of Revelation. His overall intent is to give you a simple overview of this book, although he does, in part, go into detail. Throughout this book he uses the King James Version of the Bible so you will want to have your Bible handy for looking up scriptures he references in this book. Three is a blessing that comes in reading the book of Revelation. Revelation 1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." Revelation 22:7 says, "Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the saying of the prophecy of this book." (pg 9-11).

I received Simply Revelation by Edward L. Brownlee compliments of Tate Publishing and the author for my honest review of this book. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own unless otherwise noted. For some the book of Revelation is a mystery because of the symbolism is contains. When John was exiled to the island of Patmos, he received the vision to write all he saw in this last prophetic book of the Bible. It tells of what will happen in the last days as the seven years of the tribulation unfold to those people that remain on the Earth after the rapture of believers. For them, unless they come to repent of their ways, it will literally be Hell on earth. But Revelation isn't just a book to scare people into believing in God, it offers hope to a fallen world. It shows us what life is like without Jesus Christ as our Savior. It is the ONLY book in the Bible where they is a blessing bestowed upon whoever reads the words and keeps what the book says in their hearts.

Edward L. Brownlee does an great job at providing a simple overview without confusing the reader. This is a great resource to those that want a study guide to accompany them as they walk through Revelation, verse by verse. He uses Bible scripture found throughout the Bible to bring clarity to the verses in Revelation. If you are looking for a thorough in depth look at the book of Revelation, this is not it. I do love the details he does examine in different segments in Revelation when it pertains to the four horsemen and its correlation to the prophecies in Daniel and Ezekiel. I only wish the entire book was like this for me! I easily rate this however a 4.5 out of 5 stars and it does create a desire to go deeper once you gain the basics in what Revelation speaks about.
