Question 11- Do you ever wonder why you? Do you get tired of the difficulties?
Answer 11- I am beginning to move beyond the “Why me?” question. Now I am more into the acceptance phase. (Sounds like the five stages of grief, doesn’t it?) It is my burden to bear and I am embracing it. I realize the pioneers get the arrows. I have seen a bit of this already from Christian “friends” but my study of prophets prepares me to deal with the hostility. This is not about me. This is not about writing a best seller. This has always been about being faithful to what God has called me to do and being used to help many through the coming darkness. I do not look for any rewards on this side but I do hope to hear a well done on the other side. I appreciate and enjoyed this opportunity to share with you. Thank you.

Question 3: What are some of the fictions—myths as you call them—that you expose?
Answer 3: The one that comes to my mind first is that prophecy supports the notion that believers will be divinely delivered from an intense period of suffering, we call the Great Tribulation. It is a myth. Ask fellow believers in oppressive countries or areas of Africa, Asia and even South and Central America. I do not expose this as a myth—as you say–or other views that remove God’s people from the hot furnace of affliction, I let the words of Christ and his prophets do that. Another one that I call attention to is that not everyone who claims to be a Christian teacher or preacher—who is committed to the Bible and to following Jesus as Lord—is accurately portraying future events. (I am not questioning motives but motive is not the issue. Truth is.) What God intends to do this year and beyond is a matter of utmost importance. Most church-goers are getting it wrong from their leaders in the pulpit, on their TV and in their books of prophecy. To make matters worse, they are not encouraged to read and study the prophets for themselves. This is a major problem with severe consequences if it continues.

Question 2: Would you say your book is controversial?
Answer 2: I believe it has the potential to be very controversial since it focuses on several popular myths propagated by Christian leaders today. Anyone who seriously reads The Prophets of God is going to be challenged to make some decisions: Are they going to believe popular teaching or stick to God’s Word, accepting it as their only guide to truth. I expect a lot of spiritual forces will be at work to keep this book from being widely read.
