“Mike Bull has, once again, provided us with a unique tool for assisting us with reading the Bible. This time it comes in the guise of what essentially amounts to a guidebook for what has been forever-branded as the most difficult part of the Bible to understand.”

Jared Leonard’s review of “Moses and the Revelation.”

Imagine stumbling across this book in your search for more books to help you study your way through Revelation. You know, from past studies, that Revelation is the most Old Testament book in the New Testament but your brow is furrowed anyway because Moses isn’t often brought up in this context, at least not with top billing. It’s true that there are some parallels between Genesis and Revelation, but beyond that what does Moses have to do with things at the end? Turns out, he has quite a few interpretive tricks tucked away in his writings. Here are a few tips to help you leverage this wonderful tool Mike has laid on the table for you:

Layout 1First, put all your study books and commentaries on Revelation away; go stick ’em back on the bookshelf, you won’t need them for now and there’s a good chance that, after this book, more than half of your collection will be put in your next garage/yard sale or taken to the nearest used books store. Don’t put away your Bible though! You will need it. Alright? Alright. Now, the reason for this step will be clear once you make your way through the brief introduction, suffice it to say here that Moses, being channeled through Mr. Bull, will be your new teacher on how to read and understand the last prophecy of Jesus. Oh, and make sure the Bible you are using is a) not a study Bible (because the notes will lead you astray!) and b) not a Bible you have written in yourself (because your notes will lead you astray!).

Next, have a notebook and a pen (or their digital equivalents) handy, unless you are one of those strange folks who like to write in your books. Even if you are such a person, take notes on the notebook first! You will need to go through this book a few times and the notes from your first read may not be compatible with your notes from your second read, so if you’ve written them in your book (or in your Bible) then you may need to do some striking; I’m just trying to save you some trouble here. Also, there are a ton of charts throughout the book and writing some of them out yourself is a helpful way to begin visualizing the text of the Bible, seeing how the pieces fit and flow together.

Thirdly, the book is divided into two parts. The first part is your interpretive re-education and the second part is applying that new education to the Revelation itself. Don’t move on to the second part until you have a mostly coherent grasp of the first part. Jumping into Revelation without understanding the patterns is a lot like being told to explain how a tapestry was crafted without having any knowledge about weaving. Moses (part one) gives us the warp-and-weft process so we can really get the full experience of being exposed to (and by) the contents of Revelation.

Fourth, don’t get discouraged if you can’t immediately see what is so “obviously clear” to Mike. This book has to break through centuries of Western culture’s theological and philosophical rust (hence why I suggested putting your other books away). It’s a rust so thick and seemingly ever-present that we don’t even notice it anymore, it’s just the way things are. But rust is a hindrance to movement and the removal process is never easy, or gentle. The end result, however, is always a magnificent freedom and it’s a freedom that will allow you to continue pursuing the greater glories buried in the depths of the Bible.

Lastly, take this blueprint and use it everywhere else in the Bible and outside the Bible too. Moses not only gives us the keys to understanding Revelation and everything that leads up to it, but also to having a biblical perspective on everything that has happened since the close of the canon. Why are America and Europe on the cultural paths they are on now? Because that’s how God adds to his kingdom. Every major cultural failing has brought about the growth of the Church. And every rising of the cultural phoenix brings us closer to the last cycle, after which there are no more fiery deaths (or serpents).

Don’t miss out on this chance to revolutionize your reading of Revelation!
