Jesus Is Victor!

A Fresh Perspective on the Book of Revelation

by A.W. Tozer, 1989
Jesus Is Victor!

Available on cassette as The RevelationVolume 1 Volume 2

Tozer’s original fifteen messages have been crushed up and broken into little bits and smashed into twelve short chapters. One might forgive the editor for eliminating the references to political figures and events contemporary to Tozer’s day, but much of the very best of Tozer’s exposition of the nature and characteristics of the Godhead have been cut out also. His eloquent and passionate description of these wonders has been reduced to a mere mention—an occasional sideline in the text. This is quite possibly the worst of the Gerald B. Smith compilations. I would say it is the worst, but I have no way of judging those books for which I have no audio cassette originals. In any case, this book should have had Gerald B. Smith listed as the author since, while the ideas are certainly Tozer’s, virtually every sentence has been rewritten from the words he originally spoke.

  1. The Theme in Revelation: Jesus Is Victor! — The last chapter in the book is important because it shows us who wins this Great Conflict.
  2. The Prophecy in Revelation: I Am Coming Soon! — It doesn’t matter much what we believe about how it will all happen, just so long as we know that it will and reform our lives to act in accordance with being prepared for it.
  3. The Appeal in Revelation: Repent, and Be Faithful! — Jesus loves His church and calls us to respond to the Holy Spirit so that we may be free of our sins and useful in His kingdom. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 1, Cassette #2.
  4. The Portrait in Revelation: The Eternal Christ! — Jesus, holy and pure, is in our midst, though perhaps not quite as we imagine Him to be. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 1, Cassette #3.
  5. The Call to Worship in Revelation: Holy, Holy, Holy! — The four beasts in the book of Revelation worship God unceasingly. This also is the purpose for which we were made. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 1, Cassette #5.
  6. The Title Deed in Revelation: Worthy Is the Lamb! — Jesus Christ is the only One worthy to open the title deed to creation. His dominion through sacrifice has made Him worthy. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 1, Cassette #6.
  7. The Beginning of Judgments in Revelation: The Four Horsemen! — A progression of world destruction from a wicked ruler to war to famine and death. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #1.
  8. The Overcomers in Revelation: Out of the Great Tribulation! — A look at the overcomers and some serious, probing questions about how we measure up when compared to them. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #2 and Volume 2, Cassette #3.
  9. The Supernatural Acts in Revelation: Blow Your Trumpets! — An overview of the trumpets and judgment and our unwillingness to hear God. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #4.
  10. The Human Resolution in Revelation: We Will Not Repent! — Strange supernatural creatures torment the human race, yet they will not turn from their sins. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #5.
  11. The Command in Revelation: No More Delay! — There will come a time when the judgment of God will no longer be held back. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #6, Side 1.
  12. The Invitation in Revelation: Eat and Digest God’s Word! — The sweetness of God’s Word in our Christian perception of it and a question regarding whether we are truly getting all that we could be getting out of it. This chapter roughly corresponds to Volume 2, Cassette #6, Side 2.
