Must Read: The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future

The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future

Luke 18:7-8 7 “Will not God grant justice to His elect who CRY OUT to Him day and night? Will He delay [to help] them? 8 I tell you that He will swiftly grant them justice. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find that faith on earth?"

The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future
"Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction – These same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications for America’s future and end-time prophecy... The prophetic mysteries are factual but revealed through a riveting narrative the reader will find hard to put down."

9-11 was my personal awakening. It is the event that directly led me to my Savior Jesus Christ. It is also the event that should be warning, a Harbinger, of the turning away of God's hand of blessing on our land if we continue to turn away from Him! Since 2008 I have been the Peoria County coordinator for Cry Out America, ministering to the need of Awakening.

I did not know how prophetic the events of 9-11 really were. Reading the details in The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future leaves little doubt of our tragic need. “Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: The healing of our nation is waiting on the repentance of God’s people. For the sake of God’s glory, because of His Love, to honor His Son Jesus in His body--the church, for the sake of our children and relatives, for the sake of our neighbors and friends, for the healing of our nation . . . Let us, as God’s chosen people: humble ourselves, pray, cry out to Him and seek His face, turn from our wicked ways, and fall deeply in love with Jesus again!” (COA Prayer Guide 2010-2011)

This is a must read! On Amazon: The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future

NOTE: Some critics warn against equating America with Israel, and I agree. However, I did not see this happening in this book. The author applies the principles of God's judgment on His chosen people to our nation in general. God did send a prophet to the pagan nation of Assyria (Nineveh). For my summary of national pride and need for repentance, read my COA 2009 message: By God we did it!

Excellent Read: The Last Pilgrims

The Last Pilgrims

The Last Pilgrims could well be one of the most important and prescient novels of our time. Twenty years in the future is five-hundred years in the past. It is just two decades after the worldwide societal collapse and the Vallenses, an Amish-like “plain people” living and surviving in what was once Central Texas, are under attack by the King of Aztlan and his armies. The pacifistic Vallenses are defended by the shadowy Ghost Militia and their inspiring leader Phillip, a militant freeman who wages a guerilla war with Aztlan.

Jonathan Wall and the agrarian community of Vallenses have prospered by living the simple and sustainable ways of the past. In a massively depopulated world, monarchy is back, and a corrupt kingdom arises, led by a king who cannot abide freemen on lands that he covets. Just as the Vallenses send off a plea to the benevolent King of the South States, a mysterious assassin misses his target: Jonathan Wall.

Phillip “the Ghost” is on a personal mission to save the Vallenses – even if it is against their will, while Jonathan’s own son David and his fearless teenage daughter Ruth are led to challenge their pacifistic upbringing and question whether or not the time has come for the Vallenses to fight for the land, the people, and the God they love.

The Last Pilgrims is a modern re-telling of the forgotten history of the Ancient Waldenses - simple farmers who lived in the valleys of the Alps for hundreds of years despite repeated attempts to annihilate them. Full of tragedy, adventure, humor, and love, The Last Pilgrims is a rare post-apocalyptic saga that takes history and casts it into the future, while examining that future in light of the errors of the present and the past.
Excellent book! Highly Recommend! I enjoyed reading every page... and toward the end, I couldn't put it down. Very thought provoking!

Excellent Read: Hitler, God, and the Bible

Hitler, God, and the Bible

"In Hitler, God, and the Bible, international evangelist and best-selling author Ray Comfort exposes Adolf Hitler's theology and abuse of religion as a means to seize political power and ultimately instigate World War II and genocide..."

Excellent book. I highly recommend it!

Must Read: In God's Underground by Richard Wurmbrand

WOW! As I read the last paragraph that is the only word I could summon.

Released from prison for the final time in 1964... ! 1964 ! I was born only 6 years later. In my lifetime this kind of brutal mid-evil torture and brainwashing is still going on all because Christians will not deny Christ and submit to the communist party and the socialist state! WOW!

This is a must read for American's. Unfortunately, like I was, we are asleep as the rulers, the authorities, the cosmic powers over this present darkness, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places are still at work! (Ephesians 6:10-20)

And through it all the courage and endurance of faith! God's goodness and forgiveness lived out...

In God's Underground by Richard Wurmbrand
Imprisoned by the Romanian Communists for his work in the Christian Underground, and subjected to medieval torture, Wurmbrand kept his faith—and strengthened it. For fourteen years, he shared that faith with suffering cellmates and gave them solace. In solitary confinement, he tapped out his message of hope and Christian love. In Room Four, the “death room”, he helped dying patients even though his lungs were riddled with tuberculosis and his body lacerated and bloody from whips and kicks. Anguished over the fate of his wife and son, he could still tell jokes and stories to make despairing prisoners laugh. Sorely tempted by the promise of release and reprieve, he refused to become a Communist collaborator.
