The ’50 Final Events in World History’ Are Revealed in Scripture, Robert J. Morgan Says

The book of Revelation prophecies a series of future events, but author and pastor Robert J. Morgan doesn’t believe Christians will have to wait a long time for them to start taking place.

Morgan is the author of more than 35 books, including his newest one, The 50 Final Events in World History, which examines the events described in Revelation.

“I don’t think that we’re going to have to wait very long,” Morgan told Christian Headlines, referencing prophecy. “You look at the world around us and you see the plausibility of the events of Revelation more clearly than any other generation has ever been able to see it. … We are living at a time now when one man, maybe a desperate man in Moscow can push a button, or one guy in China can break a test tube, or one terrorist can do something crazy, that would endanger the entire world.”

It is ironic, Morgan added, that scientists and politicians are discussing end-of-the-world scenarios more than preachers do.

[It’s] the scientists that are writing about this,” Morgan said. “It’s the politicians, the philosophers, but especially the scientists who are very aware that this world is facing multiple planet-altering possible events.”

Morgan formerly served as a teaching pastor at The Donelson Fellowship in Nashville and recently transitioned to serve full-time as leader of Robert J. Morgan Ministries. He is the author of books such as The Red Sea Rules, 100 Bible Verses that Made America and the Then Sings My Soul series.

The book Revelation, he said, is not as complicated as readers often presume.

“Every time I thought through it, or preached through it, I understood it better. And finally, after 50 years, the whole book was so simple to me. And it’s so complicated in the minds of people. I just wanted them to see that this book really is one of the clearest outlined books in the Bible,” he told Christian Headlines.

Morgan wrote the book from a premillennial perspective. The language of the book, he said, implies strongly that the “events are sequential.”

“And we have a series of seven catastrophes, and then seven more catastrophes, and then things that happen in the middle, and then seven more catastrophes. And then Jesus comes, and then there’s a kingdom that is said to last for 1,000 years, and then there’s a final judgment, then there is the eternal state.

“… It’s a glorious book,” Morgan added. “It is a book to be embraced. Revelation is full of hope. It is full of the answers to what’s going to happen to evil.”
