Publisher's Summary

Live with hope amidst upheaval and uncertainty.

Right now, you're living in an era defined by global pandemics, natural disasters, political strife, and ever-shifting morality. Though at times you may feel tempted to question God's presence or goodness, these events actually signal that His promises will soon be fulfilled.

In Aftershocks, best-selling author Jeff Kinley reveals how current societal and global trends fit into Bible prophecy and foreshadow the nearness of the end times - and how those prophecies can renew your passion to live wisely as you proclaim Christ to a suffering world.

You will learn how recent events point to what the Bible says about the last days; the Bible gives you reason to hope even in uncertain, fearful times; and Christians can respond to crises in ways that demonstrate Jesus's love for humankind.

Even in an age of fear and rapid change, you can be confident that nothing is outside of God's plan. Aftershocks will help you understand what's happening in this chaotic world while inspiring/motivating you to live confidently as a witness for Christ.

Really good, but still misses a few things...

I love the way this book was laid out, providing context around today's social, political, and economic climate as it relates to End Times according to Scripture. I also love the way the author uses Scripture to back up what he's stating. However, I'm yet again disappointed to see another end times author gloss over the words in order to support a pre-trib rapture position. I'm no scholar... I'm just a relatively new born again Christian, but have (since the beginning) been drawn to eschatology. Kinley specifically cites 1 Cortinthians 15:51-52 as a description of the how the rapture takes place. "In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye." He even states that a twinkling of an eye could represent 1/10th of a second. Then he goes on to say "with a trumpet blast," and then explains it will NOT be the only--or the last--trumpet blast, that there will be more with the 7 trumpet judgments of Revelation. Yet if you go back and read the passage, it literally says, "It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown." THE LAST TRUMPET. Why does no one ever point to this??? They just skim right over it. When reading Revelation 14, The Great Harvest occurs with Jesus on a cloud and an angel next to him shouting. Doesn't that sound exactly like how the Rapture is described? Well, that Great Harvest occurs at the last trumpet blast, as Jesus swings his sickle and harvests the earth. Then immediately afterward a second angel swings his sickle to gather the rest for judgment, the grapes that go into God's winepress of wrath. Then the last set of judgments are poured out on the land, again referred to as God's wrath.

1 Corinthians 15:23 states that "Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when he comes back." Why would scripture say it's we'll be caught up to be with Jesus at the last trumpet if it's not actually the last trumpet? Why are there parables and stories and references to a specific harvest if there's some supposed first, mysterious harvest before the real harvest? No matter how hard I try, I cannot wrap my head around any context for a pre-trib rapture. Yes, it does say we're not appointed to God's wrath. But God's wrath is specifically declared at the beginning of the bowl/vial judgments. It says that verbatim in Revelation 14 verse 19.

Anyway, I was just hoping this author would pick this apart a little better and provide guidance and information for Christians who will see the first 2/3 of the tribulation. I don't believe for a moment that we're essentially supposed to ignore the entire last book of the Bible because the events don't apply to us. If that's the case, then what's the point of even studying Revelation?

Good Content

While I agree with the author’s eschatology, I totally disagree with his interpretation of Romans 13. We are sovereign citizens as defined by the constitution therefore we are the governing authorities in Romans 13 not elected officials. Otherwise it’s a great book.

A MUST-READ FOR EVERY GENUINE BELIEVER

A WELL-WRITTEN, INSIGHTFUL COMPARISON OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY TO CURRENT WORLD EVENTS. BOOK IS REPLETE WITH SCRIPTURE REFERENCES THAT PROVIDE BOTH SCEPTIC & CHRISTIAN WITH MEANS TO VERIFIY AUTHOR'S STATEMENTS. SOLI DEO GLORIA!

Excellent!

Really enjoyed this book. Thought provoking for the world today. The narrator's voice was easy to listen to and smooth. I'll enjoy reading/listening to it again.

Great Book

This is a timely and easy to read book. It speaks to the new era of global crises that we find ourselves in and how we can deal with it. The author does a great job of laying out the information. He ends with what Christians can do. The narrator of the book did a great job too.

This explains why crossing God ends horribly

Every believer has to take note of every event in this book. This book illustrates the hand of God tangibly.

EXCEPTIONAL, JEFF HAS A GREAT BOOK

VERY INFORMATIVE & BIBLICAL. IT HAS MY APPROVAL. TOM PARKS DOES A GOOD JOB NARATING. I WOULD GET HIS OTHER BOOK "AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH", BUT I DON'T LIKE THE NARATION.

Some significant discrepancies...

Double check The Word in Greek/Septuagint/Latin Vulgate/Textus Receptus. Example: Rev 13:16 is "IN" NOT "ON".
