Can America Survive?: 10 prophetic signs that we are the terminal generation
For all who are wondering why I would review this kind of non-fiction book, I would like to point out I read just about any type of book. I do not care what the religion or vocation of an author is. I am not close minded enough to stick solely to my faith and books that agree with what I believe. I am the kind who would debate just for fun in order to learn another's view. Here in the United States of America we have freedom of religion. It does not matter what religion an American is ergo the same should be for authors. What matters to me is if the book is well written and has significant value of information within its pages or is entertaining; depends on the book's genre. I found valuable information within Can America Survive? written by John Hagee. Information that all Americans should be made aware.
I am not referring to the 10 prophetic signs or about us being the terminal generation which is also discussed in this book. My reference is to the information given about US federal government domestic and international policies, including the huge trillion plus dollar deficit the United States of America has accrued in the twenty-first century. This book further points out how the USA managed to borrow from communist China and gives the shocking why.
In Can America Survive? John Hagee in ordinary plain American English shows with charts how the US federal government became a world global economic monetary power where the US Federal Reserve Bank is entwined with all the other nations' reserve bank. This book explains many US federal government decisions that to those of us who are not active in politics resembles the stupidest thing to do ever; especially with money. The sections about US economics, the "golden parachute", "stimulus program" and "health reform" are very eye opening due to the facts Pastor Hagee shares. Proof is well documented within this book's pages.
Granted this book is slanted in favor of the Jewish and Christian faiths. John Hagee is a Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Church, San Antonio, Texas. His church is nondenominational and evangelical with over 19,000 active members (per the back book sleeve on the cover). The edition of Can America Survive? I read was hardback, published by Howard Books in June 2010.
This book did maintain my attention. Pastor Hagee does know the Bible very well. It was obvious he has studied history. John Hagee included the history of Israel. He points out how Israel was built during the BC periods. Way before the Moors. Long before the Palestinians. Archaeologists have confirmed this.
The most intriguing aspect of this is Pastor Hagee, like me, has read the Koran. What surprised me is John Hagee was as appalled by its contents as I. He saw what I had. This book displays exactly what we both witnessed in reading the Koran. I went into shock upon noticing this because John Hagee and I are from different backgrounds. He is a man. I am a woman. We are not of the same faith. The only similarities are we both have read numerous books and are well educated. This book explains the truth about the contents of the Koran. John Hagee's usage of passages from the Koran properly explains why Iran is using Hitler-ish diplomatic fascist agreements with the US and Europe while covertly turning Iran into a nuclear power.
For those who are thinking, this book is a Christian book and I am not Christian so will not read this book, think again. Realize the facts listed in this book are accurate. The author uses US government charts, facts and figures from official governmental documentation. His explanation of EMP's (Electromagnetic Pulse weapon) is one hundred percent correct. His scenarios of what could happen if a foreign country used in terrorist fashion an EMP is one that I am certain the CIA and FBI are concerned about. This worst case scenario is too possible to ignore.
Do disagree with his doomsday take about the Mayans and the year 2012. I stand with the archaeologists who have studied the Mayans and know the Mayans did not write or think up doomsday scenarios. They were too busy with real life problems like how to feed their large population. The Mayans saw time as circular where for every ending of time there was a new beginning; like Seasons. They were not afraid of their calendar ending on 2012 or 2015. Those expert in translating the Mayan glyphs are uncertain which is the correct year due to erosion of the glyphs. (see the article 2012 or 2015: Apocalypse or New Beginning? for more about the Mayans and their calendar)
Liked how he modernly explained "the rapture" in scenario fashion. His descriptive terms had me witnessing "the rapture" first hand. This was inspiring. I hope I am around when the faithful Christians suddenly disappear and go to the better place Jehovah sends them. That would be a very remarkable day! This book includes John Hagee's view regarding the accuracy of biblical prophecy and tells what the Fourth Reich could be.
Americans who desire to be like an ostrich with their heads in the sand; feel free to ignore this book. This book is for those with a more open mind and believes the Earth is round instead of flat. Oh, for those who believe Earth is the center of the universe, do yourself a favor, do not read this book. You will find the Earth has an orbit around the sun, is a member of a solar system and the universe does have spiral galaxies. This book is non-fiction. Like many books in its genre this one will teach a reader something informative.
Highly recommend reading Can America Survive? especially for the Koran and US government facts. This reader is grateful to John Hagee for writing this book. Someone needed to write these shocking facts down. In my opinion, who better than a nondenominational evangelical Pastor from Texas? Who else would have the guts to stand out amongst the American sheep and goats? Sadly, Pastor Hagee is in the minority. He truly believes as I do in what our Founding Fathers created and fought for in the 18th century. What is this? Each Americans' liberty and inalienable rights.
