For many believers, the return of Jesus is a subject that seems confusing. When they hear someone speak about the end times, they can feel as if they’ve shown up for the last ten minutes of a movie without getting to see the first hour and a half. The end of a story always contains surprises, but it’s the logical conclusion to the story. The key to understanding the end times is found in connecting the main themes of the end times to the overall redemptive story. Grasping these key points helps you make sense of the main themes of the biblical story and their logical conclusion.

Biblically speaking, the cross did not fulfill all the promises of God—it secured them. Tragically, we have neglected much of what the Bible says about the fulfillment of God’s promises. However, the full magnitude of what the cross accomplished is revealed in both what was accomplished when Jesus died and what will be fulfilled in the events we refer to as the “end times.” God has staked His honor on His ability to fulfill specific promises, and the plan of redemption is not completed until these promises are fulfilled. The atonement was accomplished at the cross, but there is more to the story. It Must be Finished.


Samuel Whitefield has once again set a whole new standard for preaching and teaching what the Bible has to say on the topic of the “End Times.” His new book It Must Be Finished is a wonderful treatment of a host of biblical texts that need to be read, understood, and taught afresh in these final days before our Lord returns. Readers will not be disappointed by this book nor will it treat this subject in a wearisome and hackneyed way: rather, it will produce a whole new set of understandings that unfortunately have all too often lain dormant in the church for far too long. I urge the church along with its pastors and teachers to quickly get a copy and begin the conversation.

It Must be Finished is a strong and insightful read that will stir and inspire your heart for the return of Jesus Christ. Samuel has a way of “connecting the dots” in the mind of the reader about God’s grand story line while simultaneously stirring vision for the church in the coming days. With so much hypothesis and speculation about the end times being propagated in our generation, it is refreshing to have a book like this that helps to anchor our hearts in the Word of God while equipping us to mentor and disciple others in these things.
