Good Book for the Most Part but Possibly a Key Missing, February 12, 2005
Reviewer: Ed "Prophecy Reader" (Tucson, AZ USA) - See all my reviews
I found this book quite interesting. The author has some good answers to the questions and he does a tremendous job of defending the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. I strongly disagree, however, that the United States is Babylon in Revelation 18. The author needs to scrap that thinking.

Jack Van Impe's 'The Great Escape' lays out the plan of avoiding the tribulation. I don't understand why other reviews give this such a negative rating. I guess my question is: Do they believe if there is such a thing? If this is the case then the words of Jesus Christ are all in vain.
What if it did happen? Then what would you do in the meantime? What if there wasn't a Heaven or Hell? I wouldn't want to find out the latter, if I missed Heaven and was destinied for Hell. But we all have a choice to make in this life. It's the one greatest and most important decision we'll make in our lifetime. It's a choice we'll make for eternity. I do respect the Van Impe's work as do I for Billy Graham, D. James Kennedy and Hal Lindsey. They all agree on one thing that they do believe by their faith in Jesus Christ that He is returning to this earth some day soon. I'm always fascinated by this subject. How the scriptures and current events are merging together to bring about this end time event. As we all can see what is happening in the world today with all the violence, immorality and turmoil plaguing the planet is a sign that the end is near. You can only read for yourself not just this source but you can also compare others as well. My suggetion is read Van Impe's 'Israel's Final Holocaust', D. James Kennedy's 'Why Was America Attacked?' and Hal Lindsey's 'The Final Battle.' If these don't convince you then nothing else will. My hope is that you will seek the Lord and He will reveal it to you. That is if you believe?
