Because the Time Is Near

Author: John MacArthur 

John MacArthur Explains the Book of Revelation

"The end of the world is coming." From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society's nervous fascination with the future. Whether it's a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect—at least for those who have no idea what it will be like.

For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world.

All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian's devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

 Pastor MacArthur explains why he wrote the book:

“The book of Revelation is the capstone of biblical prophecy, coming appropriately at the end of all Scripture…. It explains the future of our world and the future of the church. In our uncertain world, its message has never been more needed…. I am convinced that the end of the story matters. In fact, it is critical for every Christian to rightly understand…. So join me on this journey as we study Revelation and together uncover its profound, life-changing description of the details of the future—because the time is near.”
John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church.
