  • Apocalypse: The Great Day of the Lord for the Righteous is a positive look at the positive events of the Apocalypse. This book on the Apocalypse focuses on the great blessings that the righteous will receive when the Lord comes. 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.
