The Assyrian:satan,His Christ & the Return of the Shadow of Degrees Feb 13, 2008
This book I found to be extremely hard to follow. I found the book poorly written because it is impossible to follow the thought process of the author. I am all for giving scripture reference in the text but to quote almost the whole text..by the time you are finished you have forgotten what it was he was trying to prove. I finally gave up on it.
One of the best books out there on the AntiChrist Oct 20, 2007
As a bible student and a bible teacher, I have not seen a book that was more thorough and precise on the topic of the coming AntiChrist than this book by David Winston Busch!
His grasp of the scriptures, especially the one's dealing with God's Prophetic program with the Nation of Israel, the events surrounding those end times, and the coming of the Antichrist, are second to none.
I would recommend, and have recommended this book to anyone who would be willing to learn more about the "Assyrian" and will read it with an open mind and an open bible.
May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to use this brother to "make all men see" the marvels of His Word rightly divided!
gimme a break...you have got to be kidding... Jul 27, 2007
I give this book no stars.
Here are a few points to consider before rushing to purchase this book.
1. These types of books, sorry efforts by frustrated fanatics, are partially based on "scriptures". Let's just for the sake of argument, assume that the author's readings of the scriptures are entirely true and done with good intentions. That is, he is picking clues/signs/revelations(whatever you want to call them) from the "scriptures" and applying them to today's geo-political/religious climate in the middle east. Now what? Poof! what you know he's got it. By George he's got it. He's figured the identity of the "Anti-Christ". Gimme a break.
2. Do you actually believe that God talks(ed) to people? If someone you know to be a very pious man (we'll even grant you that) told you tomorrow that he's talking to God, what would you think? Would you believe him or get him some "help"?
Do you honestly believe that God would waste his time and converse with humans? Let alone dictate books for us? And tell us our future in detail? And why choose one small period in time to talk to humans? Why not keep talking? Heaven knows we haven't listened yet. It would seem that now is a more crucial time for him to talk to us. Don't you think we need God now more than we did 2000-4000 years ago?
BUT, let's assume he did. Why on earth would he choose one nation, Israel, to be his chief and ONLY messenger? Firstly, Israel was by no means an influential center in the middle east at that time. The center of the middle east was Mesopotamia and Egypt not Israel. Basically, human civilization, at least Western civilization, started in Mesopotamia, which in turn influenced Egyptian civiliaztion, which in turn influenced the Greeks and they in turn influenced the Romans.
Secondly, why didn't God spread his message to other cultures? Hedge his chances of someone listening and making notes? Wait, he did. Didn't he? They're called Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, and that's just a few in an isolated area. How about Africa, Europe (pre-christianity), the Americas, etc. Didn't they have religions, customs, spiritual leaders, etc.? Doesn't God love all of his children? Do you really believe God prefers one race over all others? One religion over all others? Don't you think EACH OF THOSE RELIGIONS HAD/HAVE THEIR OWN VERSION of the beginning of life and the END of it? Why would one be so much more special than ALL of the rest of them?
Thirdly, old testament was written by one group of people, the Hebrew. So they naturally would portray the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Egyptians (again, the most dominant forces in the middle east at that time) as evil and non-believers. Yes they practiced polytheism, but they believed. They believed in natural forces and ideas, but at least they believed in higher powers/forces.
Yes, the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Egyptians were expansionists, like any other civlized/advanced nation, since the beginning of time until today. Anyone who has power will use it. Period. For good or bad. And since the ancient Assyrians enslaved the Jews, and attacked Israel and Jerusalem several times, they were the bad guys and so it was written in the scriptures. But even if that is what happened, which is historically doubtful, does it then follow that 2000 years later, life would repeat itself. Come on...How gullible are you friends?
3. Do you know which nation converted to Christianity first? The Assyrian nation. The first believers in Christ, as a nation without country were the Assyrians. The first Church on earth was established in present day Iraq by the Assyrians. The Assyrians spread Christianity all the way to China without the use of force. How did the British spread christianity in India and China? Through peaceful missionary work or with the help of the cannon? Who is using force in the middle east now? The Assyrians? I doubt it.
4. God doesn't prefer one race over the other. God is not Christian, Jewish, Muslim or Hindu or Buddhist, or something else.
5. Scriptures were written by PEOPLE. NOT GOD! Normal people, but definitely narcissistic.
6. And finally, the Anti-Christ is GREED. It's not Assyrian, Jewish, Arab or any other middle eastern ethnicity. Or of European decent, although the Europeans have for over 2000 years been, by FAR, the most brutal, barbaric ANTI-CHRISTians of any race on earth. And I defy anyone who argues against that!
No. The Anti-Christ is GREED.
Eschatological Excellence....Once Again Feb 22, 2007
When David penned his previous work, Appointed, he so eloquently demonstrated an eschatological and exegetical standard that has not been seen for at least a century and unequaled today while, at the same time, serving notice to our modern/mainstream prophetic personalities that although they may be sincere, they can only, to themselves, read the words "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin." And, in reference to his most recent project, The Assyrian, the handwriting on the wall reads the same.
He stays true to his personal formula of (1) expecting his readers to be diligent and well-versed in such prophetic texts as Daniel, Isaiah, and the Apocalypse, (2) allowing the Text to both speak for and defend itself thereby relegating cliches and tradition to the responsiblity of the lazy and impressionable "babe" in Christ, and (3) has a desire to entertain no one and to please only One! As a PhD student in Biblical Theology, enormous amounts of reading and research have become a perpetual task. With that, I have yet to encounter such an individual eschatological writer as gifted as David. In a prior review of Appointed, I held the writing as ground-breaking and this second writing only serves as confirmation of my personal stance.
We live in a day and time when (as long as I can remember)that the Middle East has never been so unstable. The PLO and Palestine itself as been a wreck, Ariel Sharon demise, a lunatic Iranian leader, and no viable leader in Iraq. With all of this, its about time the world began to finally accurately identify the "Who's Who" in the "Land of Controversy." Brother David makes the excellent and most accurate case.
Escatological Grand Slam Jan 22, 2007
There is so much confusion and conjecture concerning Biblical end time events that one begins to be "tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine." I truly believe Mr. Busch has put an end to that by using a writing technique that allows the Scriptures to speak and teach what God says and means. This takes a lot of patience and many hours devoted to being a good Berean and this effort shines forth in this book (THE ASSYRIAN, as well as in the first book in the series, APPOINTED). David has traced the doctrine of the Assyrian from beginning to end as it is presented by God in the Bible.
There are entire Christian ministries devoted to the topic of escatology, men have devoted their lives to the topic. Shame on these ministries and men if they do not recognize the importance of the doctrine of the Assyrian considering the huge number of Scriptures God has devoted to the topic. Until these ministries and men come to terms with this doctrine they will continue to be "tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine" and the saints who follow them will not be edified. This book (THE ASSYRIAN) as well as APPOINTED should be in the libraries of every believer who takes an special interest in Biblical end time events. The material is for men and women who love their Bibles and desire to be edified and faithful to every detail of God's program with Israel. "Times and seasons" are of absolute importance in God's program with Israel but also for our (the "one new man") edification as well. GET THE BOOK(S)!!!
Oh, by the way, it is obvious to all that Mark Twain of Niles (the review "you got to be kidding") did not read the book. He only read the cover and back flap and maybe a few pages in between. He would be lying through his teeth if he says otherwise. It is his Assyrian blood that is boiling!
