Doomsday. That’s the word my mother used ever since I was a little girl. She said it for many scenarios, such as, “Don’t have me waiting until doomsday!” “That will take until doomsday!” And many other applications of the word “doomsday.” One day, having heard that word a gazillion times, I asked my mom, “What is Doomsday?” My mother, not one to mince her words or sugarcoat anything, even for a very young child replied, “Oh, it’s the day when the world will end.” Wait? Say what now? I just got here! What in the heck is going on with this place? And so the journey began. I had to find out more about this world ending and what the heck do I do about that! But more on that in the future. You are reading this book right now. It is much more important than my Christian life story, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. It is for every person alive right now on this earth. It is THE most important book you will ever read in your life. FOR your life. It is the book of revelation. Explained in simple terms, so that ANYONE can understand it. It is meant to be understood for the world in which we are living now. Simply stated, I wanted to tell the truth. I wanted to be a real person with flaws, hopes, dreams, shortcomings, heartache, and also fear, not some “holier than thou” type of preaching individual who can do no wrong. I am just a human. I am not perfect. And I’m not your average Christian. For the Bible states, there is NONE righteous, no, not one. No one on this earth has the right to make another individual feel less than or ashamed, based on faith. The Bible states that we need to remove the plank from our OWN eye BEFORE we try to remove the splinter from someone else’s eye! In other words, God is saying, you have your own flawed crap to deal with, quit trying to fix OTHER people’s crap. Mind your own business! We ALL fall short of the glory of God. We are all equal with the same opportunity to go to heaven as anyone that has ever lived or is alive on this earth! I wanted, with the writing of this book, to do my part, to let God use me as a means of conveying His message of the gospel, the opportunity of everlasting life to every living soul upon this earth. Jesus came to heal the sick. Not just physically sick, but spiritually sick. Does a healthy person need to call 911? No. Only those in need of immediate attention of losing their lives. Although that is a metaphor, in actuality, it’s the truth. A great number of mankind is in danger of losing their “life.” Their REAL LIFE. Their souls. For all eternity. Call 911. Now. Call on the name of Jesus Christ as your lord and savior. Believe that He died for you and is alive today, seated at the right hand of the Father.
