The hope was to have this new big book of prophecy published by late summer 2017, in other words, by now. There were times in the past when I had thought it would be all done and published by the end of last year. But the Lord apparently has his own timing and surprises.
Of the five sections of this new book, Sections 1 and 2 are done and ready to go, but Sections 3 and 4 are still being edited. However, the main current delay is in the fifth and final section. Section 5 gathers together all the relevant points in the readings of the prophetic books in Sections 2 to 4, to create a future “history” of the end times. This is challenging enough to present in a teachable form, but yet another surprise topic popped up.
Many times on the path of research for this book, unexpected topics would pop up and require more in-depth investigation. One unexpected turn, occurring in the reading of Revelation, are hints telling us about the conditions in different parts of the world during the end times. More study in history is needed to confirm these hints.
I would not feel right to publish a work like this without finishing this topic. Besides, the editing work and cover work are still chugging along. Again, it’s all in God’s time.
Three Geopolitical Areas
The unexpected topic I mentioned above regards three major geopolitical (and yes, they can even be considered “spiritual”) realms of the world. The three realms can also be defined by the degree to which the Gospel has penetrated. God has dealt with each of these three realms differently over the centuries of the church age, and He will continue to accelerate and intensify these dealings with each of these three, in the end times and right up to His return.
The reading method presented earlier in the new book reveals the Bible’s hints about three areas of the world being handled differently. During the Signposts and later during the Tribulation, each of these three areas will undergo their own style of trials and tribulations.
We see God dealing with the three areas today. They are all being prepared even now as they have been for centuries. This earlier post is a testimony to part of this preparation process.
Though the book will be discussing all three areas, the fate for the Americas ahead of Christ’s return, I believe, is one of a steady descent into grinding, relentless, poverty. God will be allowing this because He loves the people of the Americas (as He does all human beings) and wants them to turn to Him in a real way. Ignore all those false prophets and teachers saying that there will be a transfer of wealth to Christians in these end times. It won’t happen on this side of Jesus’ return.
I believe the triggering event for this poverty will be the Second Signpost.
The New Book
Just as the Signpost interpretation is based on changes to our interpretation of some verses in Daniel 7 and 8, so, too, this new book has overturned many places where old interpretations must be questioned – throughout Daniel, Revelation, Zechariah, and other places.
Please be patient. The book should be out around year’s end.
