Book Review- 7 Predicted Disasters By Jeff Ordonez
Jeff Ordonez’s book, 7 Predicted Disasters is a short book that covers several of the disasters that are predicted in The Book of Revelation. The period of time referred to in Jeff’s book is commonly know as the tribulation. Most biblical scholars fall into one of two camps. There is the pre-tribulation camp which believes Christians will be raptured out before the tribulation and mid-tribulation camp that believes Christians will be raptured out in the middle of the tribulation. In one of our recent Prepper Recon Sunday Bible Studies, we looked at both views. We also gave compelling scriptural evidence for both views. Please take the time to read The Rapture Post so you can be familiar with those 2 opinions. Mr. Ordonez has taken the mid-trib view for this book.
The book begins telling us about the one world global government. We have seen in recent news articles how the UN is seeking to impose global taxes. This is a major attempt to gain global power through taxes. A final empire was predicted in Daniel 2. Long story short, King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream of a statue with a gold head, silver chest, bronze waist, iron legs and feet of iron mixed with clay. The head represented King Nebuchadnezzar Babylonian empire, the chest represented the Medo-Persian empire, the waist represented the Greek empire, the legs were the Roman empire and many biblical scholars believe the feet represent a one world empire yet to come, The empire of anti-Christ. This final empire will likely evolve from the UN.
Jeff goes on to list all of the disasters that have been predicted by Revelation and gives all of the Bible verse references to the corresponding disasters. To name a few with out giving away the book, The Bible tells us the tribulation will be ushered in by the four horsemen. They bring death through war, famine, plague and the wild beasts of the earth. We are told in Revelation 6:8 “They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” In today’s terms, we are talking about 25% of the global population or just over 2 billion people. to put this in perspective, that is nearly 7 times the population of the United States killed in the first few verses of the tribulation. From there, it is all down hill. We have global earth quakes, and repeated direct impacts of meteors. The water turns to blood and those who have not professed faith In Jesus are tormented by boils and stinging insects.
Jeff’s book is a great introduction to the plagues and destruction foretold by the book of revelation. It is a quick read and gives a very clear cometary on the events that our world will experience. You can order 7 Predicted Disasters from Amazon through the link on the right hand side bar.
If you are new to prepping or would like to learn more about how to prepare for tomorrow, please read our 7 Step Preparedness Plan. The most important prep of all is knowing GOD. Jesus said “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his own soul?” Prepper translation: “What good will it do you to survive the coming economic collapse, nuclear war or even a zombie apocalypse if you don’t know you will go to heaven when you die.” A recent study found that 10 out of 10 people die! On that day we will meet our Maker. It only makes sense to be prepared for that day. Click here to learn more about knowing GOD.
Have a blessed day and happy prepping!
