"The Silence is Broken by Douglas Berner " At the off-set, I must say that this book, The Silence is Broken, as it relates to the war of Gog and Magog, is the best book on the subject that I have ever read - and I've read many books on this subject. Berner is very thorough, and very analytical in his approach to explaining all the ins-and-outs of Ezekiel 38 & 39. His research is unsurpassed, and he gleans from other prophetic writers in a manner that either affirms or disaffirms what he considers sound scripture, and examines their positions in the light of God's Word and just good old logic. He covers the whole spectrum of various positions of other prophecy writers/researchers in a manner that is fair, and offers Biblical proof in his conclusions which to many readers would be new thought. He has managed to set forth the time lines of the different events that occur during the Gog & Magog war in a manner that is logical and easy to understand. His application of... More > the Word of God is without parallel with respect to the Magog war scenario. A truly easy book to read and understand. I know of no other book that is as thorough as this one. I have previously given a lot of thought about a gap period between the Rapture of the Church and the beginning of the Tribulation when the Antichrist confirms the 7 year covenant with Israel. In Rev. 18:4, it says, "...Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Just who are "my people?" Are these the Jews in Mystery Babylon (America) that the Lord is calling to go home to Israel before Mystery Babylon is destroyed? It is my understanding that America has more Jews nation wide then Israel has, or very close to same number. "My people" is certainly not the Church," as the Rapture has already taken place. Can't be the Tribulation saints either. J. Vernon McGee in his commentary on Revelation says: "The warning is two fold: (1) they are to have no fellowship with the sins of Babylon; (2) and they are to flee before judgment falls." And flee to where? McGee doesn't identify these people nor does he say where they will flee to. Now Berner says on page 13 (last paragraph), that "The most likely scenario involves a Russian nuclear first strike against the United States and other nations of the West to neutralize their ability to intervene in the invasion of Israel." I agree whole heartedly with Berner regarding this possible scenario. America is doomed for direct judgment from the Lord for her sins have reached unto Heaven (verse 5) - there is no doubt about that. In verse 10, it says in one hour is thy judgment come. Just where does this judgment of Mystery Babylon fit in chronologically? I think possibly it will be shortly after the Rapture, but before the 7 year Tribulation period. Before or after the Magog war? Certainly before the Antichrist desecrates the Tribulation Temple. Seems to fit Berner's statement on page 14 wherein he says, "Jews will flock to Israel in celebration while much of the world mourns its losses." Also, see pages 116 (top of page), 158 & 236. There has been a large immigration of Jews from Russia to Israel, but not from America. I highly recommend Douglas Berner's book as it is one of the best researched books on the subject of the Gog Magog war that I have read. Berner is to be commended on a wonderful written book - it has excellent structure - is easy to read. My prayer would be that every Christian and non-Christian would purchase it and read it.< Less
"Timely look at the Day of the Lord" Current events in the Middle East continue to grab the world's attention to the point that even non-Christians can often be heard bringing up the subject of the "Battle of Armageddon." What will the end result be of this impending clash between so-called "Christian Fundamentalist" George Bush, and Islamic Fundamentalist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran? What can Israel expect as Iran, Syria and Russia continue to finance and arm terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah? Will Israel ever find peace this side of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ? Author and Bible scholar Douglas Berner provides answers to these very pertinent questions in his new book The Silence Is Broken! God Hooks Ezekiel's Gog and Magog. This book is one of the most important books written in the past few years on the subject of Bible Prophecy and, as the title implies, Berner focuses on the major end-times regional war involving Israel and her... More > neighbors that was predicted by the Old Testament prophet Ezekiel. What Berner shows is that the invasion of Israel by "Gog of the land of Magog" should be understood as the event that provokes God to finally "break His silence" in His dealings with Israel and the nations of the world, bringing forth the apocalyptic "Day of the Lord" predicted by God's prophets throughout the Old and New Testaments. The end-times "Tribulation" will not begin ambiguously or gradually, but with a global and catastrophic outpouring of the wrath of God upon the nations of the world for the specific purpose of saving God's unique nation, Israel, from certain destruction. The Silence Is Broken! examines all of the different views that have been presented over the years by various scholars in dealing with the Magog invasion, and Berner is very fair in his analysis of each of them. However, he is not afraid to break new ground and arrive at new conclusions when the Biblical texts require it. Issues surrounding the chronology of Revelation and the fulfillment of the Day of the Lord will certainly continue to be hotly debated, but even if readers do not welcome the idea of a chronological revision they will still find a great deal of important information in Berner's book. One of the ideas that Berner examines that will probably be of great consequence is the idea that the Magog invasion will be falsely portrayed as the fulfillment of the "Battle of Armageddon." After this devastating Israel-centered conflict takes place the world will probably look back upon it as the significant event that marked the transition from the old age into the new. Berner refers to it as "the day that will be misunderstood," and comments at length on the potential deception that will arise as the appearance of the Antichrist is portrayed as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to the unsaved world. The Silence Is Broken! is the most thorough and up-to-date analysis of Ezekiel's "Magog Invasion" that is currently available. It is a serious study of all of the different questions surrounding the conflict and its' relation to the Day of the Lord, yet it is also very readable and easy to understand. Israel is the key to understanding the end-times, and the Magog invasion will be the spark that causes God to once again make Himself known to Israel and to the world. Douglas Berner's The Silence Is Broken! pulls all of the various texts together, and his book could very easily become the basis for a much clearer approach to understanding the relationship between Bible prophecy and current events in the Middle East.< Less
"Re: Timely look at the Day of the Lord" A timely publication no doubt I must tell without having read it, but its promotion material in itself is well informed enough to like its nature. My comment as a person whom has not read the publication is that there are many Muslims in the midst of the internal torment of a self imposed inner Jihad with Gog and magog, and yet whom are disabling real expression of the simplicity of the resolution. I am totally inspired to go home and read Ezekiel. It is my orientation that it can have specific meaning in the use of electricity.
