Apocalypse: The Great Day of the Lord for the Righteous is a positive look at the positive events of the Apocalypse. Just saying the word brings to mind the idea of mass destruction. Many think of a fiery end to life on earth or of zombies shuffling ominously through the streets.
Focusing on the negative makes it an unpleasant subject. Contrary to these ideas, this book on the Apocalypse focuses on the great blessings that the righteous will receive when the Lord comes—a great and glorious day with no fear of the destruction that will simultaneously come down upon the heads of the wicked.
For the wicked, it will indeed be a dreadful day, and they will call upon the mountains and rocks to hide them when the full fury of the Lord’s anger is poured out upon them (see Revelation 6:16).
For the righteous, it will be a day of unimaginable joy—a day of resurrection, of peace, of safety, and of living under the rule of our Eternal King, the Lord Jesus Christ. If we remember this, we can more fully appreciate the “great day” aspect of the Second Coming of Christ, as opposed to a fearful approach.
That is the purpose of this book, so that we, along with the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos, will feel to say, “Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (see Revelation 22:20).
The cover features a stunning image of the Lord descending through the clouds of glory, as painted by Del Parson.
