Agents of the Apocalypse by Dr. David Jeremiah

 

Agents of the Apocalypse by Dr. David Jeremiah is a book written in a unique style. Dr. Jeremiah uses a fictional future historical account of the Tribulation period. Using this literary device, he reveals how the prophecies in the Bible could happen. After each chapter which describes a scene in the future, Dr. Jeremiah shows the Biblical passages which relate to that scene. In this section, he describes how the Bible prophesies events which will take place.

The book’s fictional narrative centers around a great leader named Judas Christopher. This British prime minister eventually takes control of the entire world after a world crisis. Through this crisis, Christopher seizes the opportunity for world domination. After signing a peace treaty with Israel to solve the Middle East crisis, he develops an economic and spiritual plan to unite the world under one government. The book follows a group of persecuted Christians during this time of tribulation until the return of Jesus Christ. At the end of the book, the fictional account shows how Jesus re-establishes His reign on Earth. This fictional account does a great job of showing the intrigue and motivations which would drive a man to do what Christopher does. At the same time, the account depicts the shift in world power and opinion very clearly. The chapters that show the struggle of Christians during the tribulation are also very realistic. It ends with a very plausible explanation about how Jesus Christ will return and set up His eternal kingdom.

Although I disagree with some of the scenarios that Dr. Jeremiah describes in his fictional portrayal of the end-times (especially his one-sentence comment that the United States Congress would so easily allow the Antichrist to annex the country), I applaud his insight and effort to make the Biblical passages come alive.

This fictional account is partnered with an equally researched section concerning Biblical prophecy. After each scene in the story, Dr. Jeremiah takes us to the Scriptures to show the basis of each scene. This part of the book is solid. One is not surprised as Dr. Jeremiah has written various books on Biblical prophecy and the end-times.

For someone who wants to know more about what the Bible says about the end-times, this is a great book. The person will benefit from the fictional account that is paired with the Biblical analysis.
