A book entitled Armageddon Oil and the Middle East Crisis what the bible says about the future of the Middle East and western civilization authored by John F Walvoord outlined a hypothetical detailed chronology of the would-be end-time future of the world in relation to biblical prophecies. Future world events specifically of the Middle East peace-war situation would soon be basically by the provocative influence of that one industrial necessity, a one significant culprit, the Persian Gulf Oil which deductively according to him would be the main protagonist in turning worldly tides and focus to the Middle East as the would-be center of world event’s gravity, as likewise the focal point, of the setting up of the revived Roman Empire, the coming world dictator (which according to him is The Anti-Christ) and world war 3.
Culminatingly the would be world's oil crisis as preliminary to its consequential counterpart, the birth of a collective superpower alliance, would be due apparently by a Middle East war, of the probable nuclear, chemical or bacteriological magnitude which would leads to partial halt in industrial machineries causing world economic instability. Russia and USA having a sustained oil supply would be unaffected but nations dependent on Middle East Oil would be on survival need and struggle thus the intervention in Middle East affairs, and as contingency measure would be compelled to form a one collective superpower, a Mediterranean 10-nation confederacy of political and economic power, he termed as the revived Roman Empire. It would be a unified alliance with great authority to powerfully dictates peace in the Middle East intentionally as solution for reinstating world economic stability. Its bargaining chips of the new order would be to restore peace, guarantee the flow of oil and stop disruption in the Middle East.
It would be through this Mediterranean alliance that would enforce a Middle East peace treaty and as John assumed would be the beginning of the final countdown leading to the last war, the Armageddon or World War III. A Peace treaty as precursory to the rise of a world dictator. It would all be resultant as provoked by Russia’s resistant opposition, as Russia would then attack Israel as a supposed fulfillment to a biblical prophecy to challenge the alliance’s Middle East peace treaty and likewise due by its ambition to propel itself again to superpower status. Russia along with its allies would cause again the disruption of M.E peace but miraculously destroyed which with this, eventually cause the rise of a Mediterranean leader, upsetting 3 nations of the 10-nation confederacy, took control over it, declaring himself the world ruler. He would advocate a lasting peace settlement in Middle East but resistance from around the world would then be propulsive to that ultimate rebellion, wherein armies from around the world converge in the Middle East, for that final suicidal catastrophic clash of military power-the world war 3.
Of course, this is just another of many theologians point of view but then is it indeed as the bible has predicted?
Looking at it on spectator’s perspective though seems to have some bearing on it, as convincingly, A would be Middle East crisis having a high-probability for the disruption of the world's oil industry, either by war, disruption of peace, political problems, causing universal economic troubles due by the consequential impairment of Persian Gulf oil flow is possible but then is it indeed so as by the shift of present events, that John F Walvoord, being a scholar and theologian, predicted a biblically-fitting historical reality?
I on the other hand, a bible student has otherwise to say.
He implied that in order for a world dictator to eventually arise, there must need for a Russian invasion of Israel there through as he expounded and detailed resulting in the inevitable world dictator’s arise to power.
Is he truthful indeed, he, being once a President and professor of a seminary university, and a chancellor, could he through gained knowledge, interweaving facts with theories be able to come out with the truth? Was he true about a 10-nation Mediterranean confederacy, of a Middle East peace treaty, Russian invasion on Israel and lastly, the setting up of a world dictator indeed?
In order for this stacked up cubes of what he termed calendar of end-time events crumbles to waste, refuting as false a significant part of the horizontally stacked up cubes of events, would obviously crumble years of his theological studies of the said subject respectively to waste and decapitation?
The bible itself indeed did that.
That significant cube-the allegedly Russian invasion of Israel, as one of John's theoretical focal point was proven as not biblically compliant, thus proving convincingly the theoretical structure of John's story as far-fetched. In fact, a lie.
