What People are Saying About This
“In The Impending Apocalypse, author John Claeys takes readers on a journey into the near future where they encounter the ultimate battle of good versus evil—of Satan’s king of the world overcoming the prophets of God, of war breaking out in heaven, and of the armies of the earth banding together to launch an assault upon God’s King as he comes to the earth to claim his kingdom. This is a story packed with adventure, conflict, dramatic rescue, and an incredible climax. It describes worldwide cataclysms, demonic manifestations, and people rising from the dead. And it is entirely true! As you can see, this is not a dull treatise about the future. Neither is it one based on some fanciful imagination of the author, but one that is a careful exposition of biblical passages describing a real, seven-year period leading to the return of Jesus Christ to Earth. If you are looking for clear and accurate revelation of the future, you can do no better than The Impending Apocalypse.” —Earl Radmacher, PhD, president emeritus, Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, general editor of The Nelson Study Bible: New King James Version, and author of ten books
"John Claeys’ The Impending Apocalypse helps fill a noticeable void today as new works on biblical prophecy are sadly lacking. I found the book to be a refreshing change to the typical writings and commentaries. It contains material marked by simple and clear explanations of Scriptures, presented in a way that will engage both the avid Bible student as well as someone completely unfamiliar with the biblical text. Once you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down. The book will challenge you in a way that will make you excited to share it with friends and family.” —J. Paul Nyquist, PhD, president, Moody Bible Institute

Combining biblical accuracy and intriguing narrative, John Claeys draws us into the challenging world of Bible prophecy. There is a new world coming! What can we expect? Will you be ready? As never before in our days, we need a book like The Impending Apocalypse. Read it for yourself and share it with your friends. It will change your life. And maybe, just maybe, it will change your friends’ lives as well.” —Barry R. Leventhal, PhD, distinguished senior professor, Southern Evangelical Seminary, Matthews, NC
"For many of us, the book of Revelation, rich in symbolism, can seem disturbing and complex. But in an easy-to-comprehend and simplified manner, author John Claeys establishes God’s dramatic, electrifying word in our hearts and minds in The Impending Apocalypse. In addition, Claeys has done a masterful job of pulling together passages from across Scripture about a coming seven-year period while remaining true to their context. He shows with clarity and astonishing revelation what is coming and how to prepare for it. This is a timely book that needed to be written, and it has been written well. I recommend that you not only get this book, but that you get enough copies to give to family and friends. They will thank you for it. —Mark Gregston, best-selling author and host of the national radio program Parenting Today’s Teens
“The Impending Apocalypse is well researched and engagingly written as to present a clearer understanding into the prophecies of the Bible concerning the Day of the Lord. John Claeys demonstrates that God is in control of the future and that ‘He will make all things right’ by his righteous judgment, while at the same time showing that God works his plan out of an ‘immeasurable love for people.’ A must read.” —Stephen R. Lewis, PhD, president, Rocky Mountain Seminary and Bible College
