As a Christian of 8 years. I'd like to think of myself as a person with average knowledge of end times. So, what I think.Â It's concise and to the point. It's logical, no fancy jargon, which is excellent for the average person like me. After reading the book, I had a better understanding of the history and the influences related the our present day and future.Â
The most important part of this book is the education factor. People are deceived and Christians are deceived as well. As a people, a nation under God we don't know our history well enough. This is a very important issue concerning parenting especially. If our children are to grow up in this world, inherit it after we pass; What are they going to hold on to as truth? This book tackles lies that are very wide spread.Â
Many a Christian seem to not have any care of their future, many seem to care but are confused and double-minded. Dr. Jeremiah resolves confusion and destroys lies from the enemy with the word of God. He includes many historical events to explain our current state in the world and biblical events and prophesy to explain our future. The book puts to rest fears and doubts that even though there is a known coming of age where earth's people dwell in turmoil, there is a hope greater; JESUS CHRIST.
A quote that struck a cord in me:
We can easily see and resist the effects of jihad in militant terrorism but we have trouble seeing and resisting the mere subtle strategy that the Muslims call fatah. Fatah is infiltration, moving into a country in numbers large enough to affect the culture. It means taking advantage of tolerant laws and accommodative policies to insert the influence of Islam. in places where a military invasion will not succeed, the slow systematic, and unrelenting methods of fatah are conquering wholeÂ nations.
from What in the World is Going on? Dr. David Jeremiah
This reminds me of God's constant reminders and discipline of His people in the Old Testament of the Bible. The people were warned over and over not to mix with other nations, not to marry their women, to destroy their high places, etc. Look at Samuel as an example of this.
Overall, this is a book that will stay on our shelf. My children will also use this book as a type of reference to acquire better knowledge of their current and future world.Â
I havent full completed this book as of now, but, im 3/4 of the way through and I just find it a great encouragement for facing life today. Considering the fact that the tragic event in Japan just took place, I find Dr. Jeremiah has certainly put out a timely book. As scary as the world looks, and biblically speaking the worse is yet to come, its a comfort to read the prophecies written in todays terms. I am writing this review because I came to the website to order another copy of this book, its the book I really want to share with those who dont know Christ. With the daily attacks all over this world going on it just may be what some need. The news is overwhelming and without faith in our Lord, I dont know how unbelievers are managing life. I truly hope to use this as a tool for the kingdom. Thank you
