Chapter One

Current Events

The Bible has proven to be absolutely dependable. Therefore we can trust it as the source of reliable information about the meaning of the events of our day and what those events tell us about our hope for the future as we look toward the return of Christ. The Lord Jesus Himself spoke of the wisdom of discerning the signs of the times and of taking appropriate action as we wait for his re turn (Matthew 24, Mark 13).

* * *

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be? and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

Matthew 24:3

Why is a fledgling country [Israel] with a population of slightly more than seven million and a total land space hardly larger than New Jersey mentioned in the nightly news more than any other nation except the United States and why is Israel important in prophecy?

For answers we must turn not to the evening news or the front page of the newspaper, but to the Bible.

Israel's story begins with God's sovereign purpose revealed in the first book of the Bible, Genesis. Apparently God finds Abraham and his descendants to be of enormous importance. The very proportion of the coverage tells us something about the importance of Israel. Only two chapters are given to the whole story of creation. One chapter records the fall of man. Eight chapters cover the thousands of years from creation to the time of Abraham. Then we find that fully thirty-eight chapters deal with the life stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob-the progenitors of the Jewish race.

Israel is important because the fulfillment of God's covenant with its founder Abraham greatly affects every one of us. The playing out of prophetic events concerning Israel places us in the last days of history's timeline. The miraculous survival of God's covenant people, the Jews, demonstrates God's providence and His ability to accomplish His purpose in the face of what seems to human minds impossible odds. The existence of Israel today is exhibit A in the lineup of convincing evidences that the Bible's prophecies concerning the future will be fulfilled. To this day, the issue of who controls Israel, the Promised Land, is the most volatile in international politics.

Do the boundaries of present-day Israel fulfill God's promise to Israel in the Old Testament?

The land promised to Abraham covers much more area than what the present nation of Israel occupies. Genesis 15:18 tells us that it stretches all the way from the Mediterranean Sea on the west to the Euphrates River on the east. Ezekiel fixes the northern boundary of Israel at Hamath, one hundred miles north of Damascus (Ezekiel 48:1), and the southern boundary at Kadesh, about one hundred miles south of Jerusalem (v. 48:28).

Today, Israel is one-nineteenth the size of California and roughly the size of our third smallest state, New Jersey. It is 260 miles at its longest point, 60 miles at its widest, and three miles at its narrowest.

When you look at a map and locate that tiny strip of land that Israel now claims, you can see that she does not now, nor has she ever, fully occupied the land that was described to Abraham in God's covenant promise. If Israel were currently occupying all the land promised to her, she would control present-day Israel, Lebanon, the West Bank of Jordan, and substantial portions of Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.

Will the Jews ever realize the fulfillment of God's covenant to possess Israel as an everlasting possession?

The prophet Isaiah asserted that it would happen. He prophesied that the Lord would "set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left" (Isaiah 11:11). God also addressed the issue through Ezekiel when He said, "I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land" (Ezekiel 36:24).

The fulfillment of those prophecies was set in motion on May 14, 1948, when the U.S. recognized the new state of Israel. On the evening of that announcement, popular radio commentator Lowell Thomas said in his broadcast that Americans in every part of the country would be turning to their Bibles for historical background enabling them to understand "this day in history." And indeed, as prophecies found in Isaiah, Ezekiel, Matthew, and Revelation show, both the Old Testament and the New Testament pointed to this day when the Jews would return to the land promised them and initiate fulfillment of the ancient prophecies.

The Israeli government established the State of Israel, thus fulfilling the twenty-five-hundred-year-old prophecy recorded in the Bible.

Is Israel's presence in her land today the final fulfillment of God's promise to regather His people?

The answer is no! What is happening in Israel today is primarily the result of a secular Zionist movement, whereas Ezekiel wrote about a spiritual return of God's people to Him when he said:

For I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands and bring you into your own land.... Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; ... I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God (Ezekiel 36:24-28 NASB).

The return of Jews to the newly refounded nation of Israel is the first stage of that regathering, but it certainly does not fulfill the requirements of a spiritual return to the Lord.

From the moment of God's promise to Abraham to this present hour, the prophecies concerning Israel's total possession and blessing in the land remain unfulfilled. The most dramatic events lie ahead of us.

What events regarding Israel's total possession of the land remain unfulfilled?

Israel has been attacked over and over since its founding, sometimes in all-out wars and incessantly by terrorists. The Jewish people have survived by remaining vigilant, but they long for peace. According to the Bible, a future leader will fulfill this longing by brokering a seven-year peace deal with Israel's enemies. But Scripture also tells us that this peace plan will be broken, and Israel will be attacked once again, this time as never before. Countless armies will amass against the boxed-in nation, leaving it with no human hope of victory. Only Christ's return, His judgment, and His reign will finally bring true peace to Israel.

It is then that God's covenant with Abraham will reach its ultimate fulfillment. The Jews will return to the Lord and, as Ezekiel and Jeremiah prophesied, they will be His people and He will be their God. The borders of the land will expand to the dimensions described in Genesis 15 and Ezekiel 48. Christ's return will also fulfill the prophecy of Jeremiah that God would gather the Jews: "Behold, I will gather them out of all countries where I have driven them ... I will bring them back to this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely. They shall be My people, and I will be their God" (Jeremiah 32:37-38).

Ezekiel makes it clear that this gathering means God will return every single living Jew back to their land. For he writes that the Lord said He would gather them again to their own land "and ... none of them [will be] captive any longer" (Ezekiel 39:28).

Today we see this prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes. In 2006, for the first time in nineteen hundred years, Israel became home to the largest Jewish community in the world, surpassing the Jewish population in the United States. From the 650,000 who returned when the Jewish state was founded in 1948, the population of Israel has swelled to approximately 5.4 million, and it is expected to exceed 6 million by 2020.

Does oil hold a key to the prophetic events of the future?

Oil explains why the Bible focuses its end-time attention on the Middle East, and, more than any factor other than the nation of Israel oil, holds the key to the prophetic events of the future.

Few would question the fact that oil has become the new basis for our world economy. It is now the stuff of life, the commodity most highly valued by the industrialized and emerging nations of the world, the blood that flows through their economic veins and gives life to prosperity in today's global economy. The greatest source of that lifeblood is now in the Middle East, and so that is where the eyes of the world are focused.

What does this tell us about coming events? In Luke's gospel, Jesus contrasts our ability to discern weather signs with our inability to understand the more important signs of the time: "You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it that you do not discern this time?" (Luke 12:56). Surely the world's fascination with oil-a highly valuable commodity with a source in lands hostile or borderline hostile to Israel and to us-qualifies as a "sign."

What do oil and the garden of Eden have in common?

my friend Robert Morgan flew into New Orleans several years ago, and the man who met him at the airport was a geophysicist for a major oil company. Driving to the hotel, he explained to Robert that oil deposits result from the decomposition of plant and animal life now buried by eons of time. Oil is found all over the world, he said, even under the ice of the Arctic and Antarctic. That means forests and abundant vegetation once covered the world until destroyed in a vast global cataclysm (such as a worldwide flood).

The geophysicist went on to say that the earth's richest, deepest, and largest deposits of petroleum lie under the sands of countries just to the east of Israel in the location pinpointed in the Bible as the garden of Eden. Eden was a teeming expanse of forests, foliage, and gardens with rich fertility unparalleled in human history.

Barren sand and blazing desert now exist where once grew a garden flourishing with dense, lush flora, the likes of which the world has not seen since. It was destroyed in some disastrous upheaval and has decayed into the largest deposits of oil in the world. I had never before imagined that the gasoline I pump into my car might be the ruined remains of the rich, vast foliage of the garden of Eden.

It's ironic to think that Satan may finance the Battle of Armageddon at the end of human history with revenues generated from the garden he spoiled at the beginning of human history.

Oil explains why the Bible focuses its end-time attention on the Middle East.

How does today's oil situation align with prophecy?

Since there are no substantive oil deposits in Israel today, we must continue to deal with the reality of a world in which oil remains in the possession of countries hostile to us and to Israel. For example, Ezekiel foretold a time when Russia would attack Israel. In detailing how the military aggression would take place, the prophet listed a coalition of some of the nations that would join with Russia in the attack. "Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with shield and helmet" (Ezekiel 38:5).

Until March 21, 1935, Persia was the official name of the country we now call Iran. Not once in the past twenty-five hundred years has Russia formed a military connection with Persia/Iran-until now. But now these two nations have formed a military alliance that continues to be strengthened by the political situation in our world. Russia recently signed a billion-dollar deal to sell missiles and other weaponry to Iran. And the connection is even broader, as Joel C. Rosenberg, former aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, points out: "Over 1000 Iranian nuclear scientists have been trained in Russia by senior Russian scientists." Here is an end-time alliance that was prophesied twenty-five hundred years ago, and in the last few years it has become a reality. Obviously, the stage is being set!

Oil is the new gold in the world economy and holds the key to the prophetic events of the future.

What is America's place in end-time prophecy?

No specific mention of the United States or any other country in North or South America can be found in the Bible. One reason may be that in the grand scheme of history, the U.S. is a new kid on the block. As a nation, it is less than 250 years old-much younger than the nations of Bible times that are featured in biblical prophecy. In fact, the Bible makes no mention of most nations in the modern world. The ancient prophets were primarily concerned with the Holy Land and its immediate neighbors. Areas remote from Israel do not figure in prophecy and are not mentioned in the Bible.

John Walvoord posited one theory that suggests, "America will be in the mix of the political realignments that foreshadow the end of time through our nations of origin. Most citizens of the United States of America have come from Europe, and their sympathies would more naturally be with a European alliance...." And we can see signs of such realignments taking place today.

With the usual presidential fanfare in April of 2007, President Bush welcomed European Union Commission President Jos Barroso and the serving President of the European Council, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in the Rose Garden of the White House. These three leaders signed the Framework for Advancing Transatlantic Economic Integration between the United States of America and the European Union. Less than seven months after its signing, the Transatlantic Economic Council held its first official meeting in Washington, D.C. In a joint statement it was announced, "Since April, the United States and the European Union have made substantial progress in removing barriers to trade and investment and in easing regulatory burdens."

On the surface there seems to be nothing ominous about such an agreement; it appears to be simply about freeing up economic trade between nations. But a similar, less publicized meeting was held in March 2008 at the State Department, which focused on linking the U.S., Mexico, and Canada in a "North American community with the European Union" in anticipation of the "creation of a 'Transatlantic Economic Union' between the European Union and North America." One participant-whose identity is protected by the Chatham House Rule, which permits information to be disseminated without attribution to guarantee confidentiality-made this revealing statement:

North America should be a premiere platform to establish continental institutions. That's why we need to move the security perimeters to include the whole continent, especially as we open the borders between North American countries for expanding free trade.

Statements such as this reveal an intention toward union that has implications far beyond mere economic trade. And considering the speed at which leaders are pushing union between nations, it appears that it will not be long before we see such a union instituted.

Is the unification of Europe foretold in Scripture?

More than two thousand years ago, God gave His servant Daniel a vision of the future that we recognize as the most comprehensive prophetic insight ever given to man. Through Daniel, God gave a composite history of the remaining days of the world. The first kingdom was Babylon, which was to be followed by the Medes and Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, and the last world kingdom which would be made up from a restored Roman Empire.

    a good read! The Prophecy Answer Book

    The Prophecy Answer Book

    David Jeremiah

    The Prophecy Answer Book is a little book about a lot of things! It answers questions regarding current events-like the place of Israel in end times and if oil holds a key to the prophetic events of the future-to the new Heaven and the new Earth and what we will do there. All this is backed by scriptures in the Bible. You can find out why David Jeremiah believes American isn't mentioned in the Bible, and everything you need to know about the Tribulation. This is a very concise book, directly answering specific questions.
    This book is very in depth in its answers regarding the questions. It has sections on Current Events, the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Antichrist, the Second Coming, the Millennium, and the New Heaven and the New Earth. One thing I learned was I had always heard the rapture would take place when every one had heard the Gospel. You hear, "The entire world will hear the Gospel before Christ returns." and "Jesus could come at any time." According to this book, for both of these statements to be true, the command to take the Gospel into the whole world is a condition not of the Rapture, but of the Second Coming of Christ. So, it would be correct to say Jesus could come at any time.
    In the conclusion of the book, David Jeremiah asks, "As we see the signs of the End Times appearing, what shall we do?" His simple answer is, "When we know that Christ is coming again to this earth, we cannot go on being the same people." I loved this book, and would recommend it to anyone who would like the prophecy questions answered by Biblical standards. I understood so much more after reading this book!

    Recommended Reference Book

    Although prophecy is often beyond my thinking, I really appreciated the handy, pocket size book recently written by Dr David Jeremiah. The Prophecy Answer Book helps the reader to understand past events while explaining events prophesied for the future. The layout of the book is a question and answer format that is easy to follow and understand making this an ideal book for group bible studies, discussions with your teen children or travel topic. Dr David Jeremiah uses scripture in his answers, allowing the reader a documented reference. This is a great reference book for beginners and advanced students of prophecy.

    A great pocket size guide to read!

    The Prophecy answer Book by David Jeremiah is a pocket size guide that gathers all of answers to common questions regarding Bible prophecy. It covers current events, the rapture, the tribulation, the Antichrist, the second coming, the millennium, and the new Heaven and the new Earth. Each section lists commonly asked questions followed by a brief 1-2 page answer. The answers are often tied to scripture references and historical evidence where applicable. I really enjoyed reading this book, it is tiny enough that I just stuck it in my purse and pulled it out to read when I was sitting in car-line to pick up my kids' from school! This would make a great gift for any occasion!

    The Prophecy Answer Book by Dr. David Jeremiah

    I am not a prophecy buff. Not by any means. So I handed this book to my husband, who is not only well versed in scripture, but understands the intricate details of prophecy. His opinion; Dr. David Jeremiah is on spot. Now, for my words. The Prophecy Answer Book is easy to read and understand, especially for someone like me who tends to shy away from prophecy. I have even been able to discuss a few details with my teenage children about events foretold in the Bible, which have, or are in the process of coming to pass.

    The Prophecy Answer Book seems more geared to someone, like me, who has no knowledge or understanding of Biblical prophecy, yet is curious as to how the events playing out on FOX and CNN relate to the prophets of old.

    Awesome gift book!

    I really liked "The Propecy Answer Book" by David Jeremiah. I think it would be a awesome gift book. Sometimes the Bible is hard to understand, and it it even harder to understand what it going to happen to us in the "End Times". This book is full of scripture and also really makes you think about things. I think that one of the most interesting parts is in the "Current Events" section. It talks about how Oil and The Garden Of Eden have something in common. It talks about how the Garden of Eden was located east of Israel, before the Great Flood. It says "I had never before imagined that the gasoline I pump into my car might be the ruined remains of the rich, vast foliage of The Garden of Eden." It also talks about The Rapture, The Tribulation, The Antichrist, The Second Coming, and The Millennium, The New Heaven and the New Earth.

    The Prophecy Answer Book Review

    With so many prophesies in the Bible, one can get confused and have many questions. David Jeremiah answers those prophesies that are now relevant with the world. The role of Israel is explained. Even oil is playing a part in the fulfillment of these prophesies. This was a very simple, easy book to read and understand with the question and answer format. Jeremiah breaks down everything into plain English so that anyone can get the answers they are seeking. With answers to what events are to take place before Christ's Second Coming and what is the Rapture and the Tribulation, I was easily intrigued and anxious to read this book. Even a Christian as me has many questions regarding the end of time. Questions about the antichrist and the mark of the beast are also answered. Jeremiah provides scripture that you can reference for each of his answers, this is nice because I like to cross reference with the Bible, God's true word, before I take the answers from someone else. I highly recommend this book to have as a quick reference for answers regarding prophesies in the Bible.

    The Prophecy Answer Book by Dr. David Jeremiah

    If you want answers for the future of mankind, The Prophecy Answer Book by Dr. David Jeremiah is the book for you. This book is nicely divided into different categories ranging from the present day events, antichrist, rapture and more. Revelation along with other books of the bible that has prophecy about the coming of Christ and events can be hard and confusing, but this book breaks down these areas in simple form to understand.
    This book will inspire you to talk with other people about prophecies in the bible. I think that one of the most fascinating topics of the book was the Garden of Eden and the oil today. This book will help you think of how events in the past affect the events of today. This is a great book to read and it does not talk over your head.

    The Prophecy Answer Book by Dr. David Jeremiah

    I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars and thats being kind. This is not the best book the author has written, Grace is his best work. However, this is a good read and great for anyone who believes Russia is the world power to fear. He does a good job pointing out prophecies and indicating a direct line of sight to current events. I wish he had devoted the first 3 chapters to showing prophecies that have already manifested and indicated how and when but he did not. He would have really made a much more sound case for his point but I have to tell you - I have read a lot of his work, and he is just not a good debater. He is not known for backing up his beliefs by pointing out the holes in other schools of thought. No, he makes his points softly and tenderly and I so love a flower. Nothing wrong with a soft touch.
    This book is small and easily fits inot a desk drawer, or on the edge of a night stand. It is a very pleasant read and will really open your eyes if they be closed.
    You know, not everyone can see what is going on around us. As it was in Biblical Times so it comes to pass today. Dr.Jeremiah and I may not see eye to eye on everything but I think his eyes are at least, open.
    Open up this book; its worth your time and money.

    Was it as expected? Hmmm....keep reading.

    I really enjoyed reading this book, as it left me wondering soo many things once I finished. It had many many Biblical prophecies listed in the book, going further and more deeper into the Subject. It states, talks, and explains many things in the following Topics: Rapture, Tribulation, Antichrist, The Second coming, and one chapter that I really enjoyed reading: The New Heaven and the New Earth.

    The book is -pocket-sized- small hardcover. I took it in my purse and tote during my "Review Book reading" days. It didn't take up much space at all...

    Basically the book has many Q&A and it has all chapters, each divided, and in each new chapter there is a Q&A in every page, such as "If Satan was defeated at the cross, why does he still have so much power, both now and into the future?" then it goes into explaining more about it as it morphs to the answer and skips to the next Q&A.
    It does include statements from the Bible itself. Also including some Quotes and Sayings now and then..

    I didn't find any issues or problems with the book, probably that I wish it would explain a bit more about the Prophecies that had been fulfilled, but it does talk about the future prophecies, which is really interesting.

    And well what else can I say? You have to take a look for yourself! I would recommend this to anyone who ants to get more into the topic of these past and Future Prophecies with some spice of Religion ;)

    Terrific

    This beautiful book is a pocket-sized hardcover that is easy to take anywhere. It answers some terrific questions about biblical prophecy, especially those dealing with the end times of our world. The book is divided into seven chapters entitled: Current Events, The Rapture, The Tribulations, The Antichrist, The Second Coming, The Millennium, and The New Heaven and the New Earth. Each chapter is further divided into multiple sections, each beginning with a Frequently Asked Question, such as "How does today's oil situation align with prophecy?" or "If Satan was defeated at the cross, why does he still have so much power, both now and into the future?". The sections were short, to the point, and very easy to read and understand.
    There were only two, minor in my opinion, issues that I really had with this book. The first was that the book did not spend much time on prophecies that had all ready been fulfilled. There were a few examples, but not many. I think doing so would have given a reader that is new to the study of prophecy more reason to take serious the prophecies that have not yet come to pass. The second issue is the assumption that Dr. David Jeremiah's own translations of prophecy are the correct ones. I'm not saying they're not, but, for example, when he states that Israel will be attacked by Russia he offers no alternative translation of the prophecy. He does not even suggest that there are alternative theories in existance, and yet there are many. While I tend to agree with the author, there is a lot of strong evidence to support that the attack will be by another country, such as Georgia. If I were a firm believer in the theory that it would be Georgia to attack Israel, I probably would have instantly discredited this book and thought to myself that Dr. David Jeremiah doesn't know what he is talking about. I think just a quick mention that there are other theories out there and that he believes in the Russia theory with a quick mention of why or a note about an outside source that explains his reasonings, would give him more credibility. He does the same thing with the assumption that the Rapture will be Pre-Tribulation. Towards the end of the book, when discussing the Millenium reign of Christ on earth, he does, however, explain that thre are three different views on this period and explains why he believes what he does. It only takes two extra pages, and I think the fact that he shows he knows about other views and has looked into them helps his case.

    That being said, I think this is a great book and would recommend that everyone read it. There are a lot of interesting facts in it, and it is nice to see a Christian author not beating around the bush when it comes to top

    The Prophecy Answer Book

    The Prophecy Answer Book
    by David Jeremiah

    I highly appreciate Dr David Jeremiah and his ministry, so when he quotes some statistics and explains certain Bible verses, I listen.

    However, this book is not what I expected. Yet I don't know what I expected either!
    It is just that the book is laid out in an unusual way. The question we all might ask is at the top of the page in plain English.
    For instance, on page 23, the question is this. Will there be one world leader? Then Dr. Jeremiah explains and in that explanation, he includes or mentions the Bible verse dealing with the question.
    The book is so readable and people friendly that the information at times seemed especially scary. He discusses what will happen to those who refuse to believe in Jesus. Yes, I know we have all hear little bits of this stuff but when it is altogether in one place?----I personally have resolved to do more to lead others to Christ.
    How dare we keep this Christ to ourselves when those who do not accept Him will perish?
    The book might frighten you, too. So it should. The time is short. There is none to waste. We have the lives of our families, friends, neighbors, acquaintances and strangers in our hands.

    The Prophecy Answer Book by David Jeremiah is a small, compact easy to read book. I was intrigued by the title so I chose to read this book. The book consists of questions and answers. It is divided into sections that help the reader find the answers they are looking for.

    If you are looking for an in-depth book about answers to the prophecies in the Bible, this isn't the book for you. It is simple and straight forward. While there are not answers to every question about prophecy, this book does provide basic answers to the most asked questions. I would recommend this book for a quick reference.

    The prophecy answer book...

    I just finished reading today, "The prophecy answer book" by David Jeremiah. First off, I must say how I like the look of the book. It's small and can easily fit into a purse or easy for you to hold while reading and makes a cute little coffee table book! It's hardcover and the pictures on the cover are very nice. Ok now to actually talk about the book, I give it at least 4 stars if not 5 stars out of 5! I believe pastor David Jeremiah did a great job on answering many questions about end time events, the rapture, the tribulation, the second coming of Christ, the millinial reign and the eternal state. What I really liked about this book was that it was not in a long format. He simply had various pages with different topics and questions and then he would answer them. It made getting through the book very easy. I read it in under an hour. I knew most of the information in there but I still even learned some about it, specifically regarding the nation of Israel! It captivates me that Israel is still so talked about and involved in all the news, politics and war more than any nation today and yet people still don't realize why. Overall, i enjoyed reading this book and am glad I picked to review it. I recommend it!

    The Prophecy Answer Book is a keeper!

    I have always been pretty confused about the different prophesies in the bible. There are so many of them and, to me, they are some of the most complex parts of God's Word. Dr. Jeremiah has done an excellent job of explaining them in The Prophecy Answer Book.

    I loved the way it was organized in the question/answer format. It made it very simple to read. The chapters were short and to the point which is hard to find in most bible related help books.

    The way Dr. Jeremiah wrote it had me picturing these prophesies in my mind as I read. They were certainly images I will not forget. I picked up this book at 8 pm and was finished by 10 pm. It was so gripping and interesting that I just didn't want to put it down. I learned quite a bit about what God has to say about the end times during these two hours.

    The Prophecy Answer Book is one I will highly recommend to anyone looking for a book to read alongside the bible to help answer questions about the end times.

    Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review.

    A good read- The Prophecy Answer Book

    Thomas Nelson Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book as part of their BookSneeze.com bloggers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review, and therefore, the review is 100% my honest opinion.

    It's said that the bible is full of codes. And this book is just about that. The codes in the Holy Bible, and the explanation for the events that has been prophesied in the Bible.

    Prophecy Answer Book explain the prophecy puzzles in plain, simple language. And it can be understood easily. There are 1,000 prophecies in the Bible so it's natural to wonder, have any prophecies been fulfilled?

    Do they really predict the future? And can we really know what will happen at the end of time? When will Armageddon be?

    Dr. Jeremiah decodes and clarifies prophecy for the average person. He explains in simple terms that could otherwise be mysterious and even frightening, allowing readers to gain a balanced understanding and assuring perspective of the significance of prophetic events to their personal lives as believers in Christ. This book too, explain how the modern events that occurred every now and then is related to the Holy Bible.

    Now, I've always loved mysteries and codes. This is one book that I would read over and over again and would not get bored. It's almost like reading the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. The only difference here is that while Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code gives you mind boggling question that could undermine your faith, this book provided logical answers that will strengthen your faith instead.

    And yes, I would definitely recommend this to those who doubts what the Holy Bible had predict, as the explanation really does make sense. My favourite chapter of the book is The New Heaven and The New Earth, and I would rate the book 4 out of 5. It's a good, serious book to read.
