The Messiah was to come, then, both to destroy Satan and to deliver men from his dominion, a theme which continues on into the New Testament. In the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, there is very little emphasis on the coming Messiah. In the Book of Ruth Boaz is a picture, a type, of Messiah, in his role of the kinsman redeemer (cp. Deuteronomy 25:5-10). Deliverers (judges) were raised up at times of need.

Coming of the Messiah. A leader or saviour of a particular group or cause The promised deliverer of the Jewish nation prophesied in the Hebrew Bible. The old Testament makes a substantial number of references to the ‘coming of the messiah’ or the ‘chosen one’. The major prophecy in the book of Isaiah was that a Messiah will save Israel and restore ‘everlasting peace’ (Isaiah 2) and rule over the united nation of Israel. The covenant made between God and Abraham, that his descendants would never end, gives insight that the messiah would be of the Davidic line. An advisor of King David also received a prophecy, God spoke to him and said the Davidic line is everlasting

The kingdom is coming is his powerful message. We will make every attempt to allow the Bible to speak for itself as we apply the al rules of interpretation and therefore, let the Bible tell its own eternal message. Years ago the beloved expositor Harry Ironside said, "Where there is light, there is bugs. The purpose of the coming of the Messiah will be to take away the transgressions of the people (v. 24a). We know from history that Jesus Christ paid the penalty for man's sin on the cross at Calvary. The first three deal with the removal of sin and its consequences.

The Bible clearly teaches that the material universe will be utterly destroyed at the second coming of Christ (Matthew 24:35; 2 Peter 3:1-13; Revelation 21:1). Moreover, no eternal reward has been provided for animals (cf. 2 Peter 2:12). No interpretation can be placed upon Romans 8:19ff which forces these verses into conflict with other clear affirmations regarding the destiny of this earth.

The book of Revelation begins with the words, The revelation of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:1). The word, revelation, in the Greek is apocalypse, which means an unveiling. The purpose of the book of Revelation is to reveal or unveil the ultimate triumph of Jesus over Satan. Furthermore, the fulfillment of First Coming prophecies provides the best rule of thumb for the interpretation of Second Coming prophecies. And any cursory examination of First Coming prophecies will quickly reveal that they were fulfilled in their plain sense meaning. Some of the benefits of the Cross are delayed and will not be realized until Jesus returns. For example, the Cross guarantees the salvation of believer’s bodies, but that blessing of glorification will not be realized until the revealing of the sons of God (Romans 8:19).

Zechariah began his prophecy during the second year of Darius and continued until the fourth year (1:1; 7:1). This would make the dates 520 - 518 . and mean that Zechariah prophesied with Haggai to the remnant of the Lord's people who had returned from captivity. Through Haggai the Lord rebuked the people for neglecting the rebuilding of the temple and encouraged them to be more zealous. Another interesting thing is that Zechariah produced an apocalyptic book. There are four such books in the Bible, the other three being Daniel, Ezekiel and the book of Revelation. This means that these books have a common style in that much of their message consists of brilliant imagery and symbols which must be interpreted. This symbolized the coming of the Messiah, who again is called "Branch" because He branched out from David.

More than any other book of the Hebrew Scriptures, the writings of the prophet Daniel confront us with evidence of the time of Messiah’s coming-evidence that many people would rather not see. But it is there and cannot be ignored. That Daniel was indeed a prophet is well substantiated. This lengthy period, which began with the Babylonian Empire to continue until the establishment of Messiah’s kingdom, is for that reason often referred to as the Times of the Gentiles. Now the prophet was told that a total of 490 years was to be cut out of the Times of the Gentiles, and a 490-year period had been determined or decreed for the accomplishment of the final restoration of Israel and the establishment of Messiah’s kingdom. But if Daniel was correct and his prophecy was fulfilled, then who was the Messiah of whom he spoke? The Events Between the 69th Seven and the 70th Seven-Daniel 9:26.

In a comprehensive survey of the prophetic Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments, the author demonstrates that fulfillment of God's redemptive purpose for Israel, the Church, and the nations awaits the coming of Messiah and his world kingdom past and the prelude to the ultimate realization of the kingdom of God in its eternal dimension in the new heaven and earth. Shank observes in depth the precise correlation of the Messianic thesis of Old Testament prophecy and the eschatology of the New Testament. He examines the significance of the nation of Israel, the Arab-Israel confrontation in the Middle East in the light of the total prophetic disclosure of the Bible. He explores the whole biblical panorama of end-time events and the accelerating clash of ideologies, nations, and blocs in the rush to Armageddon and judgment at the coming of Messiah.

This is one of the finest books ever written on the subject of the end-times; it is comprehensive, penetrating, and well organized. Although the book may be just a little repetitive, Shank succeeds marvelously in settling the issue of whether or not there will be a literal restoration of Israel in the last days, a topic that has long-divided the church. If you have ever wondered whether amillennialism or millennialism is the correct view, this book will save you an incredible amount of effort in sorting out the truth. Believing that the Bible is its own best interpreter, Shank depends primarily on Scripture itself to settle this very divisive issue once and for all. The foundation Scripture on which the book is launched is Acts 3:19-21, which is a pivotal, critical Scripture, the indisputable "acid test" for all eschatologies. The author also presents a very clear overview of God's purposes and reasons for His activities during the end-times. Shank's uncommon freedom from bias, hard work, and comprehensive grasp of the subject provides critical insight into our Creator's priorities and how they affect His long-range plans for us. A thoughtful study of this book will leave you with a peaceful, settled confidence in your understanding of what is happening in our times and how God's sovereign will is working along with man's free will to bring about our destiny. It will ignite a fire within you to get involved and spread the exciting, unifying news about our future. Shank's characteristic love for truth and his congenial attitude toward those who may disagree is evident throughout the book. He demonstrates impeccable objectivity, as well as a precious and unique ability to break free from preconceived ideas, saying, "...the only legitimate concern is not who is right, but what is right, what is true?" Although worthy of a prime spot in the library of all pastors, teachers, and theologians, it is not written in the classic theological language commonly found in commentaries and seminary textbooks; instead, the material is presented in a simple, clear, straightforward style, making it ideal for all readers.
For anyone interested in this neglected subject, this book is an easy read, and very informative. One of the best books I have ever read on this subject.
Still one of the better books out there dealing with the "Kingdom of God"...
