Are we living in the end times? What if the players depicted in the book of Revelation were out in force today? And if they were, would you know how to recognize them?
In Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah does what no Bible teacher has done before. He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players: the exile, the martyrs, the 144,000, the two witnesses, the dragon, the beast from the earth, the beast from the sea, the Victor, the King, and the Judge.
Skillfully crafted to engage both the heart and the mind, each chapter opens with an engaging, biblically based dramatization that brings prophecies to life as never before. As Dr. Jeremiah presents these agents in the context of their unique times and places in the end times, he weaves a rich tapestry of the temperaments, motives, and conspiracies that Scripture tells us will precipitate earth’s final days. Then, in each chapter, Dr. Jeremiah provides a detailed study called “The Scripture behind the Story,” which explores some of Revelation’s most cryptic passages, explaining how to interpret them and―most important―how they apply to the malevolent forces at play in the world today.
The stage is set, and the curtain is about to rise on earth’s final act. Will you be ready?
From the inside flap:
FROM CHAPTER 7 . . .
“Archbishop Detherow,” Martin said, “I’m sure everyone in our network audience knows about all you’ve accomplished in your illustrious career, but let me summarize. You were originally the pastor of an evangelical megachurch, and you gained a wide following with your uncommon desire to unify people of all faiths. And then, after building your church into the largest religious gathering in the world, you left your pastorate at the peak of your success. Can you tell us why?”
“I left my congregation because it became clear that God was calling me to a much broader ministry―one that reaches out to people of other faiths as well.”
“By ‘other faiths,’ I presume you mean all Christian denominations,” Martin said.
“Yes, I do mean Christians of any stripe,” the pastor replied. “But God is calling me to reach out even further. He has revealed to me that all people who worship a higher power are actually worshiping Him, whether they know it or not.”
“Are you saying that Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and Christians all worship the same God?”
Detherow beamed. “God is so big, so universal, so inscrutable, that no one should presume to understand the ways He reveals Himself. At heart, the paths to God are one and the same. The goal is to bring us into the universal oneness of all being.”
“Pastor, what is your ultimate hope as archbishop of the United Council of World Religions?”
“My hope is, with God’s help, to bring about unity among all religions. Christ Himself called His church to an undivided oneness. This is what I dream of fostering.”
“In other words,” Martin said, “you hope to achieve a one-world religion.” . . .

There have been numerous books written on the subject and I realize this is just one authors opinion but he gives very compelling arguments and explanations of how the end times could play out and backs up each argument with scripture references.
This is one of the few books that I've read multiple times and I get more out of it with each reading.
Actually, I think it's the only book I've read multiple times.
It is very well written.
Consider the following, do some research, and judge for yourselves
2001 - Quotes Henri Nouwen in church services
2002 - Endorses back cover of Erwin McManus' book, Seizing Your Divine Moment
2003, 2005 - In his book, Life Wide Open, Jeremiah favorably quotes the following New Agers, Buddhists and contemplatives,( i.e. mystics):
Sue Monk Kidd
Peter Senge (Buddhist sympathizer)
Calvin Miller Erwin McManus
St. John of the Cross
2003 - David Jeremiah's church, Shadow Mountain, encourages their men to become involved with contemplative spirituality. Currently, Pastor John Gillette of Shadow Mountain encourages the use of Richard Foster's book, Celebration of Discipline.
2005 - Signs on with Ken Blanchard and Laurie Beth Jones in the Lead Like Jesus conference.
2006 - David Jeremiah's New Book, Captured by Grace Captured by Grace Discusses Henri Nouwen and includes endorsement by Ken Blanchard
November 2006 - David Jeremiah Quotes Erwin McManus in Sermon
Throughout 2007 - Jeremiah continues to promote Life Wide Open
November 2007 - David Jeremiah quotes New Ager M. Scott Peck on Turning Point, after identifying him as part of the New Age movement in 1995 in his book, Invasion of Other Gods.
This was shocking to me, especially since Dr. David Jeremiah is a graduate of a very conservative seminary in Dallas.
However it is equally shocking that many conservative seminaries are caving and compromising with the world to get accredited. Under pressure of the institutes for accreditation they have begun to incorporate spiritual formation into their curriculum.
Paul warned us of a coming apostasy in the church (2 Thessalonians 2:3). Judging by all this I think we have arrived.
In the parable of the wheat and the tares Jesus said that the tares were planted while the workers were asleep. We Christians need to wake up.

If you need a book to unfold the mysteries of the end time, let this work by Dr. David Jeremiah through the Holy Spirit be on top of your list to buy. I did not regret pre-ordering the kindle edition of the book. It was delivered to me the exact day of its release.
In deed it is a blessing.
