Will You Survive in a World Gone Mad for Oil? Feb 16, 2008
Will you be alive during the time that Dr. John F. Walvoord describes as The Decline and Fall of America?
In his 1974 publication, ARMAGEDDON, OIL AND THE MIDDLE EAST, Dr. Walvoord predicted that a worldwide shortage of oil will precipitate the initial scenario leading to biblical Armageddon. In 2007, Dr. Walvoord's son, John E. Walvoord, and co-author Mark Hitchcock revised, updated, and renamed the book ARMAGEDDON, OIL AND TERROR. Although senior Dr. Walvoord died in December of 2002, the revisers used additional material "...drawn from his other works and conversations during the last two years of his life."
The new book proposes that twelve, biblically predicted, major "events" will occur in a possibly-soon-to-come sequence leading to Armageddon. Reading about Event #1, the world's desperate struggle for oil, may open your eyes to the shocking possibility that life as we know it in the United States may dramatically change to that of a third-world country. The last of these twelve events will be followed immediately by the return of Christ to the earth.
As do most conservative, evangelical Bible scholars, Dr. Walvoord bases his teaching of prophecy upon a literal (grammatical-historical) interpretation of Bible Scriptures. This view leaves room for the interpretation of some words and phrases as being symbolic or figurative, but it insists the Bible means what it says unless allegorical meanings are obviously intended. (The "Beast," for example, symbolizes the Antichrist, but "one thousand years" means one thousand years.)
This very readable book is as timely and current as your daily newspaper. Whatever your view of prophecy, read this book now! It may change your life.

Armageddon, Oil, and Terror Nov 24, 2007
Upon reading Armageddon, Oil, and Terror, I will say that this book is an easy read. This is the first Biblical Prophecy book which I have read, and I was impressed by the simplicity of the subject matter. The only criticism I have is that the book is quite repetitive, introducing the same common theme of America's oil addiction over and over again. While this warrants frequent attention, I feel it was a little overdone. However, despite this, I would recommed this book to anyone. I have to say that I learned a lot from reading this book.
"TIME IS RUNNING SHORT!!" Sep 29, 2007
"God wants us to grow in Knowledge..." We may not be financially rich, but we are definitely blessed with knowledge... I am so grateful to God for giving me the opportunities in reading books like these. They are priceless.
This book will change anyone's lives, as it changed mine. Before, I simply thought all are just merely coincidences. Until God intervened and made me realize things... One of His ways is letting me read these kind of books. I have read a lot of books and watched a lot of documentaries but this is ONE OF THE BEST. It is simple to read and practical. It reads like the Current Headlines. This is one of the books out there that is very easy to understand. Everything is excellent in this book(15 STARS!!). I would highly recommend this book to anyone. I know God has a purpose why He let me read this book.
I already gave copies to my loved ones and I ordered more as gifts.
Pls. buy this book. Together, let's spread the good news that our salvation is indeed at hand. Doing research and spreading the good news are some of the ways to Glorify God. TIME IS RUNNING SHORT, and God wants to save many lives. It's an honor to become one of God's instrument in saving souls. I already started sharing my blessing of Knowledge. Thanks God a lot of people do listen. Indeed, God is giving all of us a lot of chances to believe in Jesus' sacrifice.
As the book clearly supports, "THE RAPTURE OF THE BELIEVERS OF JESUS CHRIST IS THE NEXT PROPHETIC EVENT, AND IT WILL HAPPEN ANYTIME SOON." Just read the headlines... Increasing Crime Rate, Drugs, Gang activities, Global Warming, Natural Disasters, Nuclear weapons , Oil blackmails, Political Conspiracies, Pornography, Terrorism, etc. All of these are predicted in the Holy Bible, which was even written thousands of years before the birth of Jesus Christ!! Logic would tell us it's not just a simple coincidence. "THE FINAL STAGE IS SET FOR THE END TIMES." It could happen anytime soon. Besides, the Holy Bible is proven to be 100% accurate throughout all time. It never missed any of the 500+ prophecies that have been fulfilled. And it has been fulfilled LITERALLY!!
History is HIS STORY. God's story. Remember, God gave us free will. He is not bound by Time; therefore, He can see the future. God is doing everything to save our souls because He loves us so much.
Ever wondered why the Holy Bible is one of the only books that has been banned for public education? Because it is the TRUTH!!
"FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS CHRIST, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE......." John 3:16

Pay Attention Jul 13, 2007
This book is telling it just like it is going to be. Reading this book has (to me) brought to light a number of issues that are coming true and you can see it coming true. The one religion is being talked about it right now. Time is no winding down for the Lord to return.
Yikes! Batton down the hatches! Jul 6, 2007
We Christians have really been beaten over the head with this stuff recently. Even if you didn't read (listen to) any of the Left Behind series, End Times discussion has been all around us. Dispite the Christian pop-culture phenomena, this particular book is a must read for anyone interested in the (immediate?) future. The predictions in the Bible are literally coming to pass. All the dominos are lined up in a row, and some of them will surprise you, even if you have read Revelation.
