The Laws Of The Second Coming

by Dr. Stephen E. Jones. The types and shadows of the law of God help explain the events surrounding the Second Coming of Christ. Original cover artwork, softcover 8x11, 194 pages.

“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:27)

       It is a significant and revealing truth that everything in the New Testament was prefigured in the Old Testament. Behind the holidays, customs, and rituals of ancient Israel was an outline of the New Covenant, including both the first and second comings of Christ. We see this most especially in Israel’s feast days. While most Christians today pass over the Biblical passages concerning them as being mere ritual and of no importance, they actually contain in type and shadow a most wonderful representation of God’s Divine Plan. The author explains, “The Feast of Passover prophesied of Christ’s first work on the Cross. The Wave-sheaf offering prophesied of His resurrection and presentation in the Temple in heaven. The Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) prophesied of the coming of the Spirit in Acts 2. The autumn feast days prophesy of the second coming of Christ and the events surrounding it. These festivals given under Moses clarify the purpose, meaning, and even (to some extent) the timing of the second coming.” Israel had in fact seven feasts, or holy days, in their annual calendar, and each one of these is full of New Covenant symbolism. As the author intimates, these ancient rituals tell us a great deal about Divine signs related to future events.

       In addition to the book’s central purpose in showing in wonderful detail how the New Covenant was prefigured in the Old Testament ritual holidays, there are explanations of Old Testament Biblical events found from Genesis to the Minor Prophets. As examples, Israel’s inheritance in Canaan, the ten spies evil report, Jacob’s actions at Bethel, Haran, Peniel, Mahanaim, and Succoth are just a few of the prophetic fore-types examined.

       Along the way, many Biblical questions are also answered in this book, such as why palm branches were waved at the Feast of Tabernacles? What was the significance of Jesus celebrating Tabernacles in the New Testament? What were the eight signs in the gospel of Mark, and how are they significant for us? Why were Ishmael and his descendants likened in prophecy to wild donkeys? What is “strange fire” and why is God opposed to it? What is the symbolism of the three veils in the Temple? What was Paul’s lesson of the two tents? What are the three baptisms for New Testament believers? These and much more are explained in this very interesting, information-packed book.

       Particularly fascinating is chapter 11, “Christ Comes Of Judah And Joseph.” In Old Testament times, Jewish rabbis realized that the prophecies of a coming Messiah seemed contradictory. Some prophecies spoke of a “suffering servant” who would die for his people, while others depicted the Messiah’s coming as a “conquering David.” One Messiah could not both conquer and yet suffer death and seeming defeat at the same time. In order to explain this prophetic inconsistency, the rabbis proposed two different Messiahs, a Judah and a Joseph. They did not foresee instead that there would be two separate comings of only one Messiah. Yet this book does in fact depict Christ’s two comings as a Judah coming and a Joseph coming. These Messianic visitations tie in with the two sections of God’s ancient people, the House of Judah and the House of Joseph. This chapter will give you a better understanding of the separate houses of Biblical Israel and their separate promises in light of prophecy.

       Although literally every chapter of this book is a revelatory exposition of Scripture, we cannot neglect to mention chapter 12 on “The Sign Of Jonah” and its prophetic significance, and chapter 13 on “The Real Rapture.” The Old Testament types and shadows invalidate the popular dispensationalist theology of a secret rapture of the church to heaven. There is indeed the form of a “rapture” but not at all according to the pulp-book theology so prevalent today. You will be amazed and enlightened to see how all of prophecy fits together to form God’s perfect plan.

       There is simply too much wonderful information worth mentioning in this book to find the space to relate. Suffice to say that you will learn a new perspective on the Bible, gain an understanding of events related to the end of this age and the return of Christ, and develop new insight into Bible prophecy. We highly recommend this easy-to-read, yet information-packed book.

       This is a large format 8.5 by 11 inches, 200 pages (194+vi), and has a beautiful full color cover painting commissioned especially for this book by renowned artist, Keith Birdsong. An informative full-page explanation of the cover art by the artist is at the beginning of the book. These are the last remaining copies of a one-time 5,000 print-run, so order yours while they last.
