About the Book

The overarching theme of this book is that the Second Coming of Jesus happened in AD 72, and that therefore Jesus is not coming again to rapture the church. The book lays out a thorough exploration in support of this theme. Daniel’s prophecies are foundational, especially his prophecy of the Seventy Weeks in Dan. 9:24-27 and his prophecy of four sequential Fertile-Crescent, Mediterranean empires (see Dan. 7). The Fourth Empire, or the Roman Empire, is the key to understanding my theme, with stress on the meaning of the horns on the head of the Fourth Beast (see Dan. 7:7-8). As proof of my theme I use the Biblical code of “two or three witnesses” (see e.g. Deut. 19:15, Matt. 18:16, John 8:17, and I John 5:8). The three witnesses I give are Daniel, Jesus, and the collective apostles, all of whom taught and agreed that Jesus’ Second Coming would take place before Jesus’ generation passed away (Matt. 24:34). Furthermore, I show how the epistles of the N.T. reflect this theme by citing scores of passages from them for my readers to consider. Finally in Chapter Five of the book and in five appendixes I show how the Book of Revelation, aptly interpreted, fully agrees with this theme.

About the Author

As an avid student of the Bible since age 13, and with God’s leave and grace, William H. Hogue has interpreted the Second Coming of Jesus, the Rapture of the Church—and many other important, life-changing New Testament doctrines—in a whole new light. That is, they are in agreement with Jesus’ and His apostles’ teaching that they were primarily meant for their own time and generation. William, his wife, his four children, and eight grandchildren live in and around metropolitan Louisville, Kentucky. From his alma mater the University of Louisville William has bachelor degrees in English and Humanities (1964), and a master’s degree in teaching (MAT, 1971).
