Long ago the prophet Ezekiel foretold of what many believe are events leading up to the second coming of Christ. Northern Storm Rising by Ron Rhodes skillfully explains the prophecy and defines terms that many may not understand, such as Pretribulationism, Midtribulationism, and Postribulationism. Rhodes stresses Chapters 2 – 5. They form the foundation for the book by discussing radical Islam and assist in understanding Ezekiel 38-39. Many will be eager to read chapter 8 as it discusses America’s role in the unfolding events.
I am one of the many that accept the view that prophecy is unfolding before us. “Whether we are wrestling with individual insecurity or national insecurity, the Bible comforts us that God is in control not only of our individual lives—including the timing and circumstances of our deaths—but also of human history.” Rhodes is quick to point out, “In view of such facts, no Christian should need to be fearful of what is taking place in the world. Our God reigns!”
While prophecy is and always has been confusing, Ron Rhodes has made the topic easier to understand. He uses simple terms and logical organization of the information. He is careful to inform but not to panic the reader. I found this book to be very interesting, as the teacher of an adult Sunday School Class, I will refer back to this on many occasions. If you are interested in prophecy and “end times” you will want to read this book.
