David Staab has studied and restudied the Bible for nearly fifty years. His goal is to help as many people come to Christ as possible before it’s too late.
In Apocalypse: The Reason God Judges a Nation, Staab explains how everything happening in the world today was predicted nearly three thousand years ago. Judgment will be terrible, but there will also be mercy, and it is in that mercy that all who come to Christ can find hope, peace, comfort, and assurance.
It was the 1960’s, a great time of social change, lots of new things
going on in America and in American culture. Some things were wonderful,
some were not so good. I was in college, but I was doing horribly. It
was the worse time of my life and I flunked out. Vietnam was in my
future unless I enlisted, so I did. Since religious services were
mandatory in boot camp, I chose to attend Christian services. There I
heard something I had never heard before. I heard that, if I would only
ask, Jesus, himself would come into my heart, and that I could get to
know him. The verse that the Chaplain used that was what Jesus said:
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and
open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with
I had been a failure in everything I had ever done, so I figured I could
use some help. I asked Jesus to come into my heart, and wash away my
sins with his blood, and he did. That one decision has made all the
difference in my life. Now, this change wasn’t instantaneous, it took
time. In the Navy, I studied to become a Hospital Corpsman. There I
found that I no longer had trouble with my studying, seemed as the Lord
had already started his work on me. The medical field, however, was not
to be my journey in life.
