Book Review: Christ’s Return and Today’s Global Geopolitical Bombshells

Book Review: Christ’s Return and Today’s Global Geopolitical Bombshells: Understanding What Might Take Place After This – by Dr. David F Liang with Dorothy Liang

Book review by Terry James

Dr. David F Liang is as much the reason for this review as is his book itself. His credentials are impressive, in that he has moved among the elite within geopolitics and diplomatic intrigues for many years. His take on international affairs is especially relevant for my purpose in reviewing his work.

The relevance comes from the fact that he is a born-again believer who strongly supports the pre-Trib view of Bible prophecy yet future.

Dr. Liang’s biography perhaps shows why my interest in writing the review was piqued.

Dr. Liang was the Head and Thrust Leader of Space Systems and Technology within the Canadian Department of National Defense (DND). He was responsible for all space-related research and development activities including surveillance of space, surveillance from space, satellite communications, ballistic-missile defense and nuclear-related R&D.

When the 911 attack took place, Dr. Liang was meeting with senior leaders of the CIA and National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO) in Ottawa, Canada. He was at NRO HQ in Washington, D.C., the day President Bush was briefed by the then-Director of CIA that Vladimir Putin had just come to power in Russia.

In 1988, Dr. Liang, with what some might say was prescience, wrote in Chinese Christian Mission Magazine about the possibility of Eastern Germany uniting with Western Germany; and Chinese intellectuals having conflict with the Chinese military.

In 1991, he received a Department of National Defense commendation for his R&D contributions. In 1996, he received a Certificate of Award presented by NATO Advisory Group for Aerospace Research and Development.

He is a Board Member of Chinese Christian Mission Canada, Vice Chair of the Board of UK’s Ambassadors for Christ, and a former Chairman of the Board of the US’s Ambassadors for Christ.

Considering his impressive resume, Dr. Liang is in position to present in this book a unique and fascinating perspective on things to come. He has indeed done so. His strong adherence to Biblical scripture is something rarely coming from those immersed in the stratospherics of international dealings. Certainly, such attention to Bible prophecy from the pre-Trib view is, I would say, without precedence.

Christ’s Return and Today’s Global Geopolitical Bombshells: Understanding What Might Take Place After This will, I think, keep the reader’s attention riveted to page after page. It did me.

Many people are eager to embrace Nostradamus and other secular prophets revered by the world’s curiosity seekers. All the while, they dismiss the Holy Bible’s prophecies. Yet the Bible (in Revelation chapter 4) promises: “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

Inspired by that promise, the author has gleaned decades of insight regarding global geopolitical events and what might take place toward the end of this world as we know it.

This is a volume I can recommend to the student of Bible prophecy without reservation.

Prayer Wars :: By Terry James

Never in American history has there been in presidential politics a time that more fits within the descriptive given in Ephesians 6:12 than the time we are currently experiencing. That spiritual battle describes succinctly, in my opinion, the time that has led up to where America and Planet Earth stand at this moment.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ”

For decades it has been as if the dark, hellish forces of the ages have been turned loose against this nation, which has been so openly blessed by Heaven. The cultural and social “progress” thought to have been made, according to those who want to detach America from the Judeo-Christian mooring the founding fathers provided, are threatened by a significant challenge. We the people of God just might have decided we don’t wish that progressive agenda to proceed further. Thus, the war is on in a way perhaps unseen in the annals of U.S. presidential elections.

We as God’s people are told how to fight such warfare as that in which we are presently engaged. We are to “put on the whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11).

The Bible provides a description of that spiritual armor with which we are supposed to adorn ourselves in order to wage war against this most powerful and wicked enemy force. Once we are fully, spiritually armed, we are told we are to be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:18).

How well most Christians these days have fully armored up is in question. The dumbing-down by the godlessness of the secular world and–even more troubling–by the compromising churches of recent times, has taken a heavy toll. However, the one weapon mentioned in the apostle Paul’s spiritual battle preparation of Ephesians chapter 6 is in play during this war for the survival of this once-great republic.

I am believing that the core of the people in this nation who hold to the truth of the Word of God–the Bible– are “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” that the Lord will intervene in this war that is raging. It is a “prayer war” to be sure.

I’m aware of the seminary and other positions that say 2 Chronicles 7: 14 was only for Israel and doesn’t apply to America. But, the God of Heaven does not change. Jesus Christ, who is God, is the same yesterday, today and forever, the Scripture tells us. I am trusting, therefore, that that great promise given to Israel during their direst time of need applies equally to those of this day and time who are “called by His name.”

Although the nucleus of God’s people who hold fast to the Heavenly Father’s precepts and promises might be a dwindling number, we are still here in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. We are engaged in this Prayer War for a restoration of sanity in America’s government, society, and culture.

We are praying specifically that the evil forces that are raging to make this nation into a state totally apart from all godliness will be, at least on an interim basis, kept from their luciferian goal. I say “on an interim basis” because Bible prophecy plainly foretells that the satanic, globalist forces will for a time one day achieve establishment of a one-world order as Antichrist’s platform of power. It will happen. It’s just a matter of time.

Meantime, however, while the Church of Jesus Christ is here, thus the Restrainer (the Holy Spirit) resident within that Body holding back evil, it is right and proper–and I believe expected–that God’s people, called by His name, are to pray the prayer of 2 Chronicles 7:14.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Millions, I’m convinced, are even at this late hour leading up to the 2020 presidential election praying this prayer to the best of our ability. I believe movements and revelations of corruption within the political processes of late reflect directly the Lord’s attentiveness to the genuine prayers of His spiritually attuned prayer warriors.

If America is again –like in the 2016 presidential election– to be so blessed by a positive answer to those prayers by Heaven’s throne room, I believe it will mean that the battle like that described in Ephesians chapter 6 will, after the election, intensify even more than if God’s answer is otherwise. And, it will, in that case, be this nation’s final dispensation of liberty, if there is not a turning back to God in a major way.

The war of the ages as this Church Age dispensation moves into its final stages will be fought most effectively by God’s people in the prayer closets of America. Let’s be sure to put on the whole armor before engaging in the battles we face.
