Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of
this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear
it and take to heart what is written in it,
because the time is near.
—Revelation 1:3 (NIV)
How do you unravel a divine mystery nearing six thousand years in the making? A grand celestial song and dance set in motion when our Creator spoke the very stars into existence. An event witnessed and recorded by the apostle John through supernatural revelation from Jesus Christ Himself. A prophecy of prophecies, the harbinger of all harbingers—this isn’t science fiction, fairy tale or folly—this declares the absolute existence of God, and the evidence…is astronomical! A prophetic journey that began in the spring of 2013 culminates in The Final Harbinger and brings to light the literal interpretation of one of the most fascinating passages in the entire Bible. Presented in great detail whilst upholding the highest regard for Scripture, The Final Harbinger contains unprecedented archaeological, scientific, and biblical confirmation surrounding the heavenly sign of Revelation 12:1-5. Could this be the “Star of Bethlehem” heralding Christ’s second coming? Relying boldly on the achievements of modern science and technology, the reader is guided on an amazing journey of discovery as the author investigates the “great wonder in heaven” described in the mysterious passage of Revelation 12. The reality of this astronomic phenomenon could arguably be the most profound biblical revelation since the star over Bethlehem crowned the night skies some two thousand years ago. Just as the star proclaimed the birth of Christ at His first coming, so too does John’s heavenly wonder give the watchful believer a promising indication of His soon return. Has the true meaning of this passage been hidden in plain sight; shrouded behind a technological veil and beyond our understanding for nearly two millennia? Could we be the generation this visible sign in the sun, moon, and stars was fashioned for—those who would live to see the consummation of this age? And did the Creator intend that only this final generation would have the ability and means to discover it, and would do so just prior to His Son’s return? If so, it just may be that you and I were born “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). Revelation promises a special blessing to those who read, hear, and “take to heart” the prophecies contained within it (1:3 NIV). The same verse indicates that this blessing is specifically for the final generation—believers living on earth when “the time is at hand” (KJV). Consequently, I believe a literal interpretation of Revelation 12:1-5 (and it signifying the soon return of Jesus Christ) is the true blessing to be found in the book of Revelation. The time is now at hand! This compelling and in-depth exposé into the harbinger of Revelation 12 is sure to foster many questions. Certainly, there will be some who choose to discount this information altogether. Yet the facts remain, and the amount of scriptural evidence should leave little doubt as to the validity of such an exciting revelation. Recall the promising words of Christ just before His crucifixion:
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. —John 16:12-13
Like the apostle John, I believe the people of God are experiencing an unprecedented season of supernatural and prophetic revelation. An infusion of wisdom and discernment imparted by the Holy Spirit is available to those who are seeking Him. Accordingly, nearly 7000 hours (over three years) of intense biblical study and research into the sign of Revelation 12 and its connection to Christ’s second coming is being brought to the forefront through the message of The Final Harbinger. The sole purpose for writing this book is to awaken the body of Christ to the sound the “midnight cry.” My ultimate prayer is that many will come to believe in and accept the truth of the Word of God and its message of salvation through the reading, studying, and sharing of this information. In the end, the one question each reader must answer for him or herself is this: Coincidence; or the handiwork of almighty God? In my view, these are the only two choices. There is no middle ground, no in-between—no “option C.” Jesus is coming again. Perhaps sooner than you think. Are you ready? Today is the day of salvation! I trust this work will inform, inspire, encourage, and even challenge you in your walk of faith as we continue to watch for Christ’s imminent return. The time is near and the stakes are high, so let our journey begin. Indeed, this could be the final harbinger.
