Well here we are again. It is September 11 of the year 2012, the eleventh anniversary of that terrible day. I still remember the numbness I felt watching the towers on fire, and the surrealness of them collapsing. My heart goes out to the families of the 3,000 who perished on that day.
It was the horrific events that occurred on that September morning in 2001, and those responsible for it, that got me thinking. I was already noticing in the years prior that the popular prophetic picture of Europe and Russia was not panning out. Up until 9/11, the activities of the Islamic realm were just a low level of noise to me. But Islam got my attention on 9/11, as it did millions.
The events of that morning kindled in my mind the question of what role Islam might play in the end times. It was then stumbling across Joel Richardson’s writing on answering-islam.org a year or so later that set me on the path. The rest was hard work and history.
It is amazing to me how many different things can come about from such an event. And on that day I would have never guessed that it would lead to my book Hidden In Plain Sight, and the birthing of this new end time Signpost Theology.
