Christians and non-Christians, at some point in their lives, have heard about the book of Revelation, sometimes referred to as the end times, the end of the world, and the apocalypse. While some have read the words, there are those who do not completely understand the meaning and most importantly, what it means to them. Thirty-seven years of studying, prayers and discernment has been poured into understanding these important, yet controversial scriptures.
Doomsday. That's the word my mother used ever since I was a little girl.
She said it for many scenarios, such as, “Don't have me waiting until
doomsday!” “That will take until doomsday!” And many other
applications of the word “doomsday.” One day, having heard that word
a gazillion times, I asked my mom, “What is Doomsday?” My mother,
not one to mince her words or sugarcoat anything, even for a very young
child replied, “Oh, it's the day when the world will end.” Wait? Say
what now? I just got here! What in the heck is going on with this place?
And so the journey began. I had to find out more about this world ending
and what the heck do I do about that! But more on that in the future.
You are reading this book right now. It is much more important than my
Christian life story, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. It is for every
person alive right now on this earth.
It is THE most important book you will ever read in your life. FOR your
life. It is the book of revelation. Explained in simple terms, so that
ANYONE can understand it. It is meant to be understood for the world in
which we are living now. Simply stated, I wanted to tell the truth. I
wanted to be a real person with flaws, hopes, dreams, shortcomings,
heartache, and also fear, not some “holier than thou” type of
preaching individual who can do no wrong. I am just a human. I am not
perfect. And I'm not your average Christian. For the Bible states, there
is NONE righteous, no, not one. No one on this earth has the right to
make another individual feel less than or ashamed, based on faith. The
Bible states that we need to remove the plank from our OWN eye BEFORE we
try to remove the splinter from someone else's eye! In other words, God
is saying, you have your own flawed crap to deal with, quit trying to
fix OTHER people’s crap. Mind your own business! We ALL fall short of
the glory of God. We are all equal with the same opportunity to go to
heaven as anyone that has ever lived or is alive on this earth!
I wanted, with the writing of this book, to do my part, to let God use
me as a means of conveying His message of the gospel, the opportunity of
everlasting life to every living soul upon this earth. Jesus came to
heal the sick. Not just physically sick, but spiritually sick. Does a
healthy person need to call 911? No. Only those in need of immediate
attention of losing their lives. Although that is a metaphor, in
actuality, it's the truth. A great number of mankind is in danger of
losing their "life." Their REAL LIFE. Their souls. For all eternity.
Call 911. Now. Call on the name of Jesus Christ as your lord and savior.
Believe that He died for you and is alive today, seated at the right
hand of the Father. He loves you and wants all of mankind to see the
kingdom of God that no flesh should perish.
To those who are believers in Jesus, you need to call 911 as well.
Although your soul does not need immediate attention, your knowledge of
the events God has planned IS an emergency! The book of revelation was
written just for that purpose! The Bible speaks about Jesus coming as a
thief in the night. Basically, that is for the unbelievers of this world
who reject Christ. But it also applies to believers who don’t know
what to expect from future events because you haven't learned what is in
the book of revelation. I wrote it as plainly as I could through
studying (YEARS worth!) prayer and discernment. "Call 911" by reading
this book. Now. May God bless you all. Amen.
