“Are powerful forces now at work to create a global government, economic system, and religion as predicted in the Bible?” the authors ask in Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson’s book, The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery.
~ What ~
Written in 2015, this four-hundred-page paperback targets those who are interested in future world prophecy. With no profanity, topics of secret societies, the occult, murder, death and end-times may not be appropriate for immature readers. Using mainly the King James Version of the Holy Bible, the NKJV, NIV, ESV, NRSV, NLTNET, CEB and Living Bible are also referenced. After an introduction, the book is divided into three parts that contain fourteen chapters, ending with acknowledgments, appendixes, and notes. The eternal plan of salvation is included.
In this end-time reference book that contains a myriad of quotes from famous Bible experts such as Graham, Hitchcock, Jeffrey, Jenkins, LaHaye, Lindsey, Markell, Rosenberg, and Stone to name a few, the authors explain how Lucifer tricked Adam and Eve in the garden and is still trying to control the world, connecting the dots via Babylon. Through Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, the Bavarian Illuminati, and Bohemian Grove as well as DNA, shadow governments, America, blood moons, Atlantis, transhumanism, and the author’s personal vision, it is a roadmap of the start of Creation to God’s final judgment.
~ Why ~
A fan of Biblical prophecy, I am fascinated learning what the Bible has to say about the imminent Rapture and future Tribulation. With the book taking three years to write, it is a vast collection of viewpoints (some correct and some not) of what is happening and will happen to our world today. Focusing on Babylon and often American’s role or non-role in the upcoming global economic, geopolitical, and spiritual systems, it reads like a documentary of quoted experts on the subject.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not like reading about end time scenarios that are Biblically based. I found the chapters were bogged down with repetition and so many quotes that it was hard to find the authors’ words. With one author explaining his vision from God, some may feel uncomfortable with his explanation while others may not. Although I had not heard of the Illuminati Capital in Kazakhstan, I already knew about most of the information given.
~ Who ~
Author McGuire is a prophecy expert and eschatology professor who has spent decades researching worldwide secret organizations. Nominated Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anderson is an investigative journalist and past magazine editor.
~ Wish ~
Since I am a Pre-trib Rapture believer, I disagree with some of the suggested theories. I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. Having an index would be helpful for those who want to look up a name, group, or topic instead of having to flip through the pages.
~ Want ~
If you do not know a lot about the end times and Biblical references, this may be an overwhelming collection of quotes about different subjects about the future taken mostly from the Book of Revelation.
