Earlier this year I had the opportunity to hear Pastor Mark Hitchcock preach a message on Ezekiel 38 and 39. It was a riveting and fast-paced hour. So I jumped at the opportunity to read his book The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel and I was not disappointed. He wrote this book to expand upon a chapter in an earlier book What on Earth Is Going On. With radical Islam in the news on a regular basis readers may also wonder how Islam fits into Bible prophesy.
Mark helps the reader to understand who the players are, their ancient Biblical names and the corresponding countries and locations in today’s world. He takes what can seem like a puzzle and helps put the pieces in place to reveal how these nations may play into God’s end time events as prophesied in Ezekiel and Revelation.
Mark also delves into God’s prophetic timetable: How close are we to the Rapture and when will the Battle of Gog and Magog occur? He is mindful that only God knows the day and the hour when the church will be raptured and when the Tribulation will begin. But Mark closely examines the signs of the times and admonishes Christians to live in light of the Lord’s soon return.
I appreciated his clear presentation of the Gospel message and reinforcing biblical theology that God has not given up on Israel or replaced His chosen nation.
Whether you have a good understanding of Bible prophesy or are new to the study, I believe you will benefit from this book. I highly recommend Pastor Mark Hitchcock’s book The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel.
I would like to thank Blogging for Books for the opportunity to read The Coming Islamic Invasion of Israel. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
