A thorough study of prophecy was not on my agenda, but the Lord pressed hard on my heart and I couldn’t shake it. I have been a student of Scripture for many years. The past several years were different. Unprecedented for me. My life was poured into a study of the word of God. But God is abundantly faithful. What was once, only a few short years ago, an insurmountable topic for me has come alive with vibrancy and clarity. Be assured, I fully recognize that I don’t have all of the answers and that I am prone to error. But thanks to God, the Bible does have all of the answers, and it is not prone to error!
In my opinion, the Lord is revealing greater depths of understanding to more fully prepare His followers for the second coming. While this book comes to some sharp conclusions, I’m hopeful that my writing goes much deeper than interpretations and analysis of prophecy. I hope that the embers in your heart become warm . . . that you are inspired to pay attention to all that God has written to you in the Holy Bible. We are to live, prepare, and look for the blessed hope of His glorious future return!
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ . . . And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
(Philippians 1:6, 9–11)
