There are “things which you have seen”, “things which are”, and “things which will take place”. The seven churches of the book of Revelation, which actually existed in the 1st century (“things which you have seen”), also represent seven broad types of churches that can exist at any time in history (“things which are”), and seven generally overlapping periods of church history (“things which will take place”). These letters to the seven churches of Asia can be applied in four main ways: They existed literally and historically at the end of the 1st century AD. They are seven types of churches which exist at any time throughout history. They represent seven types of churches that will exist at the end of the age. They correspond quite well to seven periods of church history. This book examines the history of the church in light of the letters of Jesus Christ to the seven churches in Asia, as recorded by John in his Revelations. Unless learning can be achieved from the errors of the past it is a sure thing that those errors will be repeated.
Harpazo – The Intra-Seal Rapture of the Church
When it comes to books devoted to eschatology in general and the Rapture specifically, they often
either read like a formal academic argument written solely for the benefit of scholars or employ the use of fiction to avoid directly handling the underlying biblical text. As with Jacob’s previous books and exhaustive list of sermons covering nearly every area of theology, Harpazo presents the doctrine of the Rapture and Resurrection in the strictest biblical sense possible, leveraging the handling of Scripture in the same manner as passed along to us by Christ through the Apostles and Early Church of the 1st century.
Shadows of the Beast – By Jacob Prasch
“How the identity of the coming Antichrist will be revealed to the faithful Church”. This is not like so many books which attempt to name a specific person to be named as the Antichrist or to make a case
that the ultimate Antichrist can only come from a particular place or background. Scripture teaches us that he will be revealed to the faithful church by Christ, and this work provides the tools and background to accomplish this at the appointed time. It is highly recommended that this work be read in tandem with The Dilemma of Laodicea, Jacob’s book on the seven churches in Revelation which provides a platform for understanding how the spirit of antichrist has been at work during every age of the Church and particularly in this final age, which is characterized by the church at Laodicea.
