Today’s review is on a book I was recommended to read by Tina Frisco. Tina and I are very much on the same wavelength about life, death, inspiration, world politics, just to name a few. We sometimes share our thoughts on the state of the world and possible outcomes, and after a conversation we shared about ‘end of the world’ theories and conspiracies, Tina inspired me to read this book. I’d already read several books on the topic, from bible excerpts to Nostradamus predictions, but this book had me captivated from start to finish. Granted, it’s not a book for everyone. It’s dark and ominous, but frighteningly relevant. Even more frightening is that the book was published in the late seventies and has proved accurate before and since that time.
The impact of The Late Great Planet Earth cannot be overstated. The New York Times called it the “no. 1 non-fiction bestseller of the decade.” For Christians and non-Christians of the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s blockbuster served as a wake-up call on events soon to come and events already unfolding — all leading up to the greatest event of all: the return of Jesus Christ. The years since have confirmed Lindsey’s insights into what biblical prophecy says about the times we live in. Whether you’re a church-going believer or someone who wouldn’t darken the door of a Christian institution, the Bible has much to tell you about the imminent future of this planet. In the midst of an out-of-control generation, it reveals a grand design that’s unfolding exactly according to plan. The rebirth of Israel. The threat of war in the Middle East. An increase in natural catastrophes. The revival of Satanism and witchcraft. These and other signs, foreseen by prophets from Moses to Jesus, portend the coming of an antichrist . . . of a war which will bring humanity to the brink of destruction . . . and of incredible deliverance for a desperate, dying planet.
My 5 Star Review:
Are you a believer? In the end, according to Hal Lindsey and the prophecies from the bible, the world is on a path to destruction of its own making.
Lindsey takes us on a journey through predictions going back to ancient times – many of which that have already happened and many that portend things to come. I’m not sure if fate, man or time can stop what God has in store for the end of time, but one thing is certain: It’s a good idea to become more aware and pay attention to what is going on around the world with politics, war and natural disasters in order to grasp what world leaders are dishing out so we can learn the difference between goodness and “pretend goodness” which will inevitably lead to evil and destruction.
This book will give you a better understanding of the AntiChrist who will come and gather believers because he/she will give them promises of greatness only leading to their demise, and explains the difference in believing when the “real” Messiah will make his descent back to earth.
Be careful what you wish for and who you believe, because believing in goodness is the only thing that will save you in the end.
