We live in troubled times. But the church is not troubled. Christ teaches us that disease and pandemic are signs of his blessed return!
Books about the last days
In Called to Watch for Christ's Return learn about the signs Christ gave his disciples of his coming and what it means to be ready for his return. This commentary is an exposition of Jesus’ teachings to his disciples in Matthew 24 and 25.
Behold, He Cometh!: If you are daunted by the symbolism in the book of Revelation, read this commentary. It is clear and understandable, and you will be comforted by this truth—though the world may seem to be out of control, our God is sovereign and he controls all things.
Judges and Ruth, the fifth volume in the Unfolding Covenant History series, continues the exposition of Old Testament history from the viewpoint of God’s covenant faithfulness toward his people in the old dispensation. Professor David J. Engelsma now becomes the author, intending to finish in this and succeeding volumes what Professor Homer C. Hoeksema began.
Part 1 traces the dark history of the time of the judges with its recurring themes of Israel’s departure from Jehovah to serve heathen idols, God’s chastisement of his people by delivering them to the persecution and dominance of their enemies, their crying to him for help in their distress, and the Lord’s gracious deliverance of them by various judges. The conclusion of this downward line of the history of God’s people illustrates the necessity of a theocratic king in Israel, as expressed in the words of Judges 21:25: “In those days there was no king in Israel.”
Part 2 explains the familiar but amazing history of Ruth, which illustrates vividly the truth of God’s sovereign redemption in the salvation of the Gentiles and the inclusion of Ruth into the line of the covenant so that she becomes the grandmother of King David, the savior of Israel as the theocratic king and the type of Christ.
