This book is designed mainly for those who are beginners in the study of prophetic and dispensational truth, though should it fall into the hands of those who are “looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ” and who have, perhaps for years, been giving earnest heed to the “more sure Word of prophecy,” we trust that it will afford meat in due season and stimulate praise to God for the marvelous and blessed prospect which His Word sets before us.Many books have already appeared before the public presenting in clear and Scriptural language the various aspects of the subject of our Lord’s Return, and we hesitated long before we decided to add one more to the number. The different chapters in this volume have been given by the writer in sermon and lecture form to numerous audiences both in this country and in England, and it is only the repeated requests of many of those who have heard these addresses which has caused us to now set them down in writing.

PAUL'S exhortation to the younger preacher, Timothy, has come home to many with great power in recent years. As a result, there has been a return to more ancient methods of Bible study, which had been largely neglected during the centuries of the Church's drift from apostolic testimony. Augustine's words have had a re-affirmation: "Distinguish the ages, and the Scriptures are plain." And so there has been great emphasis put in many quarters, and rightly so, upon the study of what is commonly known as "dispensational" truth.
The final book of the Bible, Revelation prophesies the ultimate judgement of mankind in a series of allegorical visions, grisly images and numerological predictions.

Often identified as a proponent of Hyper-dispensationalism - which recognizes a clear distinction between the Church and Israel and believes that the Christian Church began with the ministry of the Apostle Paul - E.W. Bullinger here attempts to examine the basis of dispensational truth as found in Paul's Epistles. In doing so, he hopes to clarify "the dividing of the Word of Truth at Acts 28" for those searching for a greater understanding of their beliefs. Controversial in the eyes of traditional Christianity, this defining work is of value to Christian and Jewish scholars alike. British clergyman ETHELBERT WILLIAM BULLINGER (1837-1913) was one of the most respected Bible scholars of the 19th century. He is author of numerous works including Commentary on Revelation, Great Cloud of Witnesses, and How to Enjoy the Bible.

What has been called the “Gap Theory” was a popular and consistent explanation of the first chapter of Genesis among fundamental, evangelical Christians up through the mid 1900s. With the rise of Young Earth Creationism, the gap theory was simply pushed to the background and ridiculed as a past effort to satisfy the claims of modern evolutionary science. In effect, the new teachers buried this doctrine with the debris of Noah’s flood deposits. However, we shall see in this study that the YEC effectively left the literal Biblical record of Genesis 1 and leaped into the realm of pseudo-science to claim that Noah’s flood deposited all the various sedimentary strata of the whole earth. In addition, they pontifically assert that the whole heavens and earth are only about 6000 years old. This study is going to prove that the YEC are the very ones who do not take the Scriptures literally. This study will prove conclusively that Moses did not make the blunder of either stating or inferring the earth is only 6000 years old. There is an abundance of biblical evidences that the Gap is not a theory, but a fact! In this study you will find that certain of the prophets and an apostle were inspired of God to look back in time, even to the “backside of earth’s history,” We shall be surprised to find that the past is as captivating as the future. In fact, as we better understand the past, we shall better comprehend the future. The cover picture is from two pages of the Jewish Sarajevo Haggadah, as seen in the Saravejou museum in Spain. This work was done in 1400 CE. The pictures on each page are to be read in the Hebrew manner from right to left. The pictures graphically depict the six-day activity of God in preparing the earth of man’s habitation. Two things are to be noted: first, these six days are preceded by a scene of the earth in a chaotic condition as described in the second verse of Genesis 1 (first fame, upper right hand corner); second, on the first day light was made and nothing else ( third verse of Genesis 1, second frame). Obviously, this six hundred year old work was not influenced by modern scientific theories, rather it represents a long standing interpretation in Judaism.
Thoughtful and accessible. An up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the most important issues in dispensationalism, underpinned with accurate scholarship and summarized with clarity.

For 457 years the Prophet Nostradamus has been a MYSTERY. Hidden in dark speech he was misunderstood and rejected by the Protestant Christian Church, forbidden to be read by the Catholic Church, and totally discredited by psychics and worldly interpreters as being in the Occult. However, it was the occult interpreters that were instrumental in keeping his work alive and mysterious. Written from a Christian perspective, many questions about this mysterious man Nostradamus, and why his work has endured so long are answered in this book. Reverend Sunday has discovered the secrets and the intentions of his lifes work, and you will be amazed to find out WHO Nostradamus really was. If you are curious about Planet X-Wormwood, then you will find out how that ties into these hidden revelations. There always comes a time when hidden things are revealed to a Prophet. (Daniel 2:22; Amos 3:7.) The second Prophet, William Branham, was way ahead of his time in his understanding of supernatural phenomenon; and his revelations on the Book of Genesis regarding the apple and its sexual connotations lost him favor with the approved church then, and now. Prophets are rarely understood in their own age. These TWO PROPHETS were brought together to this unknown Sophe/Scribe chosen to disclose the hidden, amazing information, and revelation for our day...To GOD be the GLORY. Prepare the way for the Lord.

Of the many claims that Jesus made, one stands out as being the most obscure but intriguing characteristics in scripture. Jesus called himself a ‘worm’. How can a man who claims to be equal with God also make himself equivalent to a ‘worm’. If this is true, What does it mean for all of those who believe in him? What does it mean for all of those who do not? ‘Standing at the foot of Mount Herman at the altar of Zeus, Jesus asked a rather profound question of his disciples. He wanted to know from their perspective how they defined him. Before that time, there had been many angel-like gods over the centuries that were purported to be God, and were presented in dramatic and powerfully deceptive ways. After reading Jesus Is a Worm, the same question will be asked of you that was asked of Jesus’ disciples.’ Who do you say he is?

This modern classic will challenge and inspire you to work toward prayer’s rightful place in your own church. Prayer will shake up and empower your congregation to be kingdom changers.
