THROUGH THE PROPHET'S EYE
Marshall Best, 2000
Author's Note: "The recent terror at the World Trade Center has many people looking to New York City as being Revelation's City of Babylon. They are right on the money, but the worst is yet to come. Other events we are seeing today, with the Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever outbreak among the Afghan refugees in Pakistan and the Anthrax warfare being conducted by bin Laden upon the US, sound remarkably appropriate to the fourth seal in Revelation 6: 7-8 of pestilence and the grave. Particularly fitting to prophecy is the warfare being waged against the Taliban forces who are hiding in caves and underground bunkers in Afghanistan. This is evident when compared to the sixth seal of Revelation 6:12-17. My study of history and prophecy shows that the US will not only be a part of the end times, but will play a dominant role. Through the Prophet's Eye is a particularly important 'must read' for the student of Bible prophecy."
In this bold and provacative work, Marshall Best delivers a refreshingly original perspective to understanding end-times prophecy. He argues that the theories which have come to dominate our thinking today have arisen from ages past when men could not possibly have imagined the world in which we live today. His scholarly work challenges modern Christianity's eschatological theology head-on. Includes a full chapter on New York City being the 'Babylon' of Revelation 18, explaining in depth the clues to its identity, and the events of its destruction.
Christians today are taught many opinions about the Second Coming, yet nearly all are merely variation of the same few theories. Most of these theories originated in the distant past when superstition and ignorance dominated the Christian world. Modern theories reflect this bias. Christianity is ready for a fresh analysis of Bible prophecy, with the slate wiped clean and free of preconceived ideas, methodically rethinking all end times prophecy.
Through the Prophet's Eye reveals that nearly all of Daniel's prophecies have no application to the end times whatsoever. These difficult Scriptures for the backbone of most prophetic theories. You will see how these visions have been fulfilled in their entirety in ages past. When Daniel's visions are cut away from popular end time scenarios, the accepted theories collapse.
What Scriptures remain paint an entirely different mosaic from what we commonly accept. Popular ideas accepted as biblical truth, such as the revival of the Old Roman Empire, the construction of the third temple in Jerusalem, the Abomination of Desolations, and the seven year Great Tribulation, will be shown to be based upon the misinterpretation of the visions of Daniel and the misunderstanding of a single sentence uttered by Jesus.
Contrary to popular belief, rather than providing support to the idea of the rise of the great Antichrist, the Bible explicitely denies it. The dubious origins of the Rapture theory will be exposed and shown scripturally to be a false theological construct.
The fulfillment of many key components of popular end times theories will come about in a completedly different fashion altogether. The Great White Throne Judgment, the New Jerusalem, the Resurrection, the Book of Life, and the Lake of Fire will occur under circumstances unexpected by Christians, and be of a different nature than what we have been taught. Many bizarre elements of the prophecies, which so confound theologians, will not only be interpreted in a new light, but will also be shown to be particularly fitting within the scenario described by the prophets.
Through the Prophet's Eye is a radical quantum leap forward in the study of Bible prophecy which should prove enlightening to Christians, and devastating to today's popular theories.
"You won't believe what happened! A few days after I was reading Through the Prophet's Eye, a recent Bible prophecy book by Marshall Best that projects the possibility of "the destruction of New York City by radical Muslims," some radical Muslims destroyed the World Trade Center in New York City! You simply cannot afford to be without Best's 750-page work----a veritable encyclopedia of pertinent, Bible-based data written in readable style!"
