      Many books have been written on the messages of the Revelation, but this one is in many ways unique. For those who truly love the Word of God and the counsels of the Spirit of Prophecy, these chapters will be both a challenge and an inspiration.
      The author is a dedicated layperson, who for years has had a prayerful urge to dig deeper into the wonders of this last book of the Bible and present its mighty truths in an appealing way especially for our youth. Her study in the great prophecies of Revelation has led her to the conviction that many of these have a double application, the first, our usual interpretation, and the second a particular message for our particular present day crisis, or as Moffatt’s translation reads —“the crisis at the close.”
      Not only young people but those with more experience, such as ministers and Bible teachers, will appreciate the way these chapters link up strong Scripture passages with illuminating statements from the inspired writings of Ellen G. White. Verlene Youngberg writes as she talks and while her thoughts are deep she presents them in a lucid winning way.
      As this book now leaves the publishers, we believe the fulfillment of God’s promise will be apparent to all that “upon the . . . handmaids in those days will I pour out My Spirit.” Joel 2:29. Being a somewhat unusual treatment of many of the prophecies, some may raise questions in certain areas. But when we remember the objective of the chapters, we will realize that it is not a classroom text nor a syllabus but an earnest attempt to help especially our youth to understand vital truths for this time.
      May the Holy Spirit move each reader to dig deeper into the prophecies of this climaxing book of Scripture which is indeed “the Revelation of Jesus Christ.”

      To my fellow travelers on this uneven journey of life
            —who may be struggling up the steep mountain of difficulty,
            —or caught in the jungle thicket of temptation,
            —or bogged down in the muddy valley of despond,
            —or lost on the deep ocean of sin,
this book is lovingly and prayerfully dedicated.
      May it bring you a breath of fresh air from heaven; may the silver lining on the cloud come into sharp focus; may heavenly sunshine flood the chambers of your mind; and —above all— may
The Revelation of Jesus Christ to His People
become a vital part of your inmost being!

Verlene DeWitt Youngberg, R.N.

—Men’s hearts will be failing them for fear; some will desire to die.
—But you, His child, can be carried through the storm on His arms of peace if you will take time now to listen to His voice.
