With many conversations I have had concerning what the Bible tells us about prophecy and the End Times, I have been asked by some where did I learn about all of this. I decided to list below the books that I have read over the past 40 years that have built and strengthened my belief that we are now in those days prophesied in the Bible for over 2,000 years.

First and foremost, I am not endorsing any single book, other than the Holy Bible, to be the source of irrefutable evidence of the accuracies of Jesus and the Prophets. With that said, there are many authors and books that do illuminate what the Bible says will happen and brings it into a modern day, more easily understood context. Others I have read are not accurate and do not agree with what the Bible says. For example, the book I cite in this blog’s Introduction written in 1866 has proven to be totally false. But, it has been proven to be false solely based on the Biblical prophecy that the Jews WOULD return to Israel in the last days, a belief that was viewed as absurd and impossible back in 1866 when that book was written. But obviously it is no longer a valid argument after 1948 when Israel declared their independence! Some books by Joel Rosenberg and Tim LaHaye are fictional but based on Biblical prophecies and make for an amazing and exciting read!

Most interesting to me is that many of these books proclaim things to come like the rise of Russia and Iran and their invasion of Israel in the last days (Ezekiel 38 & 39, which IS NOT Armageddon) at a time when the two countries were enemies of each other, and in fact Iran under the Shah up until 1979 actually had good relationships with Israel. Current news headlines lead us to believe THAT time is not far away! More on that in a future blog. I will continue to update this list as my studies continue.

The Holy Bibles I study, will be quoting and their related reference guides are::

  • NIV Study Bible
  • NASB Study Bible
  • Holy Bible, KJV
  • Holy Bible, RSV
  • Prophecy Study Bible, KJV:
  • Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible
  • The New Unger’s Bible Handbook

The books read that have helped to enlighten me in what is yet to come are as follows:
