Early morning March 11, 2011: I was dreaming about a frolicking foal when I heard an inaudible command.
I kind of woke up.
My husband said, “Have you seen the news?”
“There’s been a devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.”
We watched the coverage for a while. The horrors of flood, quake, and nuclear disaster all wrapped up into one event.
“Tell them what?”
God’s Message in Eleven Words
Sometimes God asks us to do things we can’t do on our own. When He said “Tell them” I didn’t know how. Nor did I know what.
Ask and you shall receive. God faithfully provides what you ask for in His will. (James 4:3)
- This is the End Time.
- The King is Coming.
- Choose today.
These eleven words assigned the next book I was supposed to write, Rapture and Revelation. My first two books were already published, but they revolved around relationship with horses. Something I knew well. I could deal with that.
But the end times? Maybe I was on a party line that morning and got a message intended for someone else.
The message was for me. I tried to ignore it.
You Can’t Ignore God Forever
God doesn’t intrude or demand. And wastes nothing.
The exercise of getting Rapture and Revelation written and published stretched me in ways I didn’t know were possible. And I didn’t do it right away.
God doesn’t nag.
My early morning study time was rich and rewarding. The Holy Spirit taught, I learned. As time went by, and the book wasn’t written, quiet time with the Lord got really quiet. Sometimes I thought I was the only one there.
“Lord, I feel so far from you. What do you want me to do?”
“You know that thing I asked?”
“Is it done?”
“What’s your question?”
Shamefully, I have to admit this exchange happened more than once. I did not want to write the book. I couldn’t write such a book.
God Always Makes Us Able to Do As He Asks
One wonderful thing about God is that He equips us once we will to obey. I buckled in to write. It was a messy, exhausting process. But finally it was finished.
Rapture and Revelation doesn’t tell you what to believe, but challenges you with a bible study leading you to know why you believe as you do.
- We are in the End Time.
- The King is coming.
- And a choice must be made.
Many people believe they’ve made the necessary choice and are all set. Sadly, many are wrong.
Grab a copy of Rapture and Revelation for yourself and maybe share the opportunity with your Sunday School class or Bible study group. It’ll give you something to talk about!
