This Book Has the Answers,
This review is from: Armageddon, Oil, and Terror: What the Bible Says about the Future (Hardcover)
Mark Hitchcock and John F. Walvoord have hit the nail on the head, have shot the center out of the bullseye. Oil is the key to the events shaping up in the Middle East. With the depletion of reserves and the duplicitous
nature of rogue states like Iran and Venezuela, the world is increasingly being held hostage to having the pipelines being shut off.
Europe,the United States, and others so dependent upon the vacillating temperament of OPEC have set themselves up for the catastrophe that most certainly awaits them. A Lack of research into alternative fuel sources, a societal refusal to cut back on consumption, an unwillingness to drill new sites and build new refineries, have exacerbated an already critical situation regarding oil. Add this to the standing the US and its allies have with the nation of Israel, we can readily see the hastening approach of Armageddon.
It is clear to most who are open-minded enough to compare Biblical prophecies with today's headlines that the only thing more idealistically
precious to the Islamic Arab countries is their immutable, deep-seated
Jews in particular and Christians in general. If oil and terrorism are the means to subjugate and eventually destroy both, they will use it to the extreme.
The authors have clearly and concisely outlined the roles that each of the countries, including the US, Russia, and China, will play in the latter day times. There is no escaping the eventuality, just a matter of when in God's eternal plan. This book is a wake up call for everyone to be prepared. Hitchcock and Walvoord, however, do remind us who believe and trust in the Savior of mankind " That there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus our Lord ".
