Coming of the Glory

How the Hebrew Scriptures Reveal the Plan of God

From the opening chapters of the book of Genesis, the Hebrew Bible hints at the challenges that will face our species⏤using the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as a symbol for the pitfall of materialism, and the tree of life the station of the Word of God. As we progress through its pages, rich detail is revealed, through its multifaceted allegories, history, hymns and stories, which detail a further succession of Divine Messengers, right down to the present day.

Through the teachings of Jesus and the spread of Christianity, most have at least passing familiarity with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses. Some might be familiar with Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and other prophets who worked within their traditions to carry forward and reinforce their teachings. These teachings and prophecies were carefully preserved and guided millions of believers for almost 2,000 years.

In our modern age, is the study of these ancient writings of interest only to believers, historians and scholars, or could the teachings of such messengers have direct relevance to everyone alive today?

Revealed in those ancient pages is a God who declares that the end is known from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10), and that He has made it known to His servants, the prophets. The purpose of those prophets was clear, they addressed the problems of their time⏤idolatry and disobedience to the Mosaic Dispensation⏤to call the people to obedience to the Divine Covenant brought by Moses. They also foretold a time of Glory in, what was to them, the distant future - that after much tribulation their descendants would inherit the promises associated with that Covenant. Their prophetic vision reached across thousands of years, announcing an age of global peace and the unity of humankind.

Could life-changing perspectives await the reader willing to approach these prophecies with an open mind, in the light of that which has been made manifest in this modern age?

Volume 1 of The Coming of the Glory explores the prophecies found in the earlier Hebrew scriptures. Volume 2 covers the pre-exilic prophets and Volume 3 the post-exilic prophets, all within the context of ancient Israelite history.

About Eileen Maddocks

Eileen Maddocks was born and raised in the northeast state of Maine in the United States. Her mother, who was raised in the Millerite tradition in the Advent Christian Church, studied and pondered Christian history and theology on her own and became a Sunday School teacher in the Universalist Church. The stories of the Advent Christian grandparents and their church’s tent meetings were family lore but Eileen was raised in liberal Protestantism.

This dual world fostered a need to seek and search spiritual truth. She received a bachelor degree in liberal arts and then married and had two children. Soon a single parent, she worked as a secretary and sales representative to raise her children. Always a spiritual seeker, she went to various Christian churches but did not find the answers to her questions. Then she explored New Age concepts for many years.

Then in 1989, just when the bottom had seemed to drop out of her life, she discovered the Baha'i Faith and subsequently served at the Baha'i World Centre in Haifa, Israel, for 16 years as a researcher and writer. Upon retirement, she returned to her New England heritage and is now a writer and editor living in the bucolic state of Vermont where billboards are banned.

Her best description of herself is that of a curious student, always trying to learn. She endeavours to write in a manner designed to encourage readers to seek and explore for themselves. Her study of the life and mission of William Miller led to a deeply empathic appreciation for him. The author’s cerebral lifestyle is balanced with a serious study of ballet and four seasons of performing in Farm to Ballet, a summer production of Ballet Vermont that brings classical ballet to Vermont farm venues. Every year over 5,000 people watch this dance celebration of life on a Vermont farm from spring through fall. Its performances raise money for many nonprofit agricultural organisations.
