There is a lot of end time literature on the market and it is interesting to notice the inconsistencies in the interpretations of the biblical message of the revelation... the author gives a wonderful explanation, uncovering the missing link between the interpretations oﬀered by other authors and the deeper meaning of the message. 5 Stars by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite (Readers' Favorite Gold Medal Award Winner for Christian Non-Fiction 2019)

As one of the subjects I research and write about is Bible Prophecy, K. J. Soze's, The Message for the Last Days, caught my eye. I did not expect to agree with everything the author wrote (eschatological disagreement would not necessarily have garnered the book a bad review). A certain amount of disagreement between authors of Bible Prophecy is always expected, and despite this, usually offers at least some delightful new insights and interesting discussion.
I opened the book eagerly expecting to glean at least some fresh new insights into a topic I am passionate about. Instead, I found what I considered to be spurious definitions/redefinition's throughout the book.
The author used a lot of scripture, but redefined most of it, even such basic tenets of the Christian faith as: Free Will, New Birth, Assurance, Heaven and Hell (not a complete list). Soze's views on these differ widely from what one would expect from a professing Christian claiming to promote unity in the Body of Christ. His views differ so widely from biblical Christianity, that Sozer calls the simple Gospel of Salvation, Faith, and Assurance, a "hybrid" gospel.
I believe I was the right audience for this book, as theology and eschatology are subjects I have studied and written about for for the past 38 years. I read my Bible every day always picking up today where I left off yesterday, so I have a good grasp of what it says and does not say. And I never shrink from challenging the status quo of tradition when it comes to biblical interpretation. But I cannot recommend a book that seems to be entirely devoted to divorcing Christians from their faith by telling them most everything they have ever believed or been taught about the Bible and Eternal Life is wrong.
The extent of research into the topic of ‘what’s next – after this life’ or the Second coming of Christ as in the biblical Revelations, or Armageddon as so many current films and books and blogs describe, has rarely been as impressive as this volume. And yet Soze’s presentation is accessibly warm and supportive as he guides the reader through the many references that describe the final days of the earth and mankind.
The opening discussion is shared here to encourage readers to follow through the explanations offered: A key to understanding the bible is learning how to properly interpret it through guidance of the Holy Spirit. Sounds simple. However, cultural traditions and personal biases complicate our efforts. Another barrier arises from the biblical concept that there are three realms of existence: our physical world, God’s heavenly realm, and a spiritual realm that bridges the other two…Passages that seem contradictory are possible to harmonize by identifying their relationship to these separate realms…’ This inviting style makes a profound topic accessible.
The message of the book is based on Christianity, and that is made clear in the many quotations for the Bible. Soze brings it all together and in the he offers the following: ‘Christ is coming again, and he is bringing his reward with him, along with the crown of eternal life. H e has commanded his workers to call those whom he would choose into repentance. Christ began by calling prophets and apostles; now it is up to us to extend the call. How can the elect hear the gospel if the Word is not preached?...Instead of debating our individual interpretive models, we must strive for unity in the Spirit. Our modern mindset would have us cling to our own perspectives and divides accordingly. But God calls us to gather together and seek his objective truth together. May we lay aside our self-centeredness and submit to the Spirit.’
This is a scholarly tome that seeks to unify all thought on the End of Life. In these precarious times it is fine food for thought. Grady Harp, July 19
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book
The book makes a few strong claims that are not backed up here - though volume two is promised. First, free will does not exist. Second, the soul dies with the body. Still, on the issue of salvation, the book is quite thorough and worth reading. But if you are looking for stuff about the antichrist or Babylon or the European Union or things that are usually included in books about the end times, this book is not for you.
