About the author I hesitate to say anything about myself because God deserves all the credit.
Yet, I have learned from the publishing arena that the marketability of the author
is scrutinized more than the material written. That being said, there is nothing special
about me other than God giving me a mathematical brain that was good at doing
word problems. “End times” in the Bible is like a huge word problem with many
variables. Over time, people have changed the variables, excluded some, and come up
with all sorts of solutions that are wrong. Naturally, there can only be one correct
solution (that keeps all the variables in tact) and this has to be it because it’s so simple.
Honestly, I just studied the Bible (along with history), separating fact from opinion,
and the answer eventually presented itself (after more than a decade). Surprisingly,
after you see it, the solution is not that complicated at all.
I have gotten a couple of e-mails asking for more details about myself so here goes.
I am currently 49. I was “really” saved when I was 17. Prior to that, I attended church
with my parents but they only went on Easter and Christmas. I questioned that
practice, once, to my mother, but I got my head bit off so I just went with it. At age 17,
after a brief experience with drugs and alcohol, I drove myself to church to see what
they talk about the rest of the year. I was saved, joined the youth, and was very
dedicated. My friend’s mother gave me a New Testament “Living” Bible and I was
amazed that I could understand the writing. I studied it diligently. Even back then,
a girl that I didn’t know told me that I was going to be a teacher but I had no clue
what she was talking about. Later, I landed a job as a math and science teacher at
a small Christian school (even though my degree was in engineering) so naturally,
I thought that was it. Years later, I found the prophesy to go much deeper.
Overall, life has been harsh but sometimes, when things are at their lowest,
we study the Bible the most. Regardless of the path chosen, everything got me here,
making this website, so as sad it it may seem, I can’t complain because I think this
is my purpose in life.
So why would God reveal something so important, such as Daniel 11 and
the seals, through an unknown person like me? As Paul said, “God chose the
foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the
world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised
things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one
may boast before him.” (1Corinthians 1: 27-29)
I have no reason to boast because I am the lowly, foolish, and weak to which Paul
is referring. However, God told Samuel, “The Lord does not look at the things man
looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
If I had to speculate on why God chose me (other than being at the right place
at the right time), I would have to say my grandmother. I have limited memories of her
because I was the youngest of her youngest. But my aunt, who is now 80, can tell
some amazing stories of her faith during the depression. (click for a brief story)
*Grandmothers are often mentioned in the Bible, such as David’s great-grandmother,
Ruth, and Timothy’s grandmother, Lois, to name a couple.
Well, I won’t bore everyone with my life story (anymore) but I will tell you how
I came to study Daniel 11. I did not set out to study “end times” but I was led in that
direction anyway. As Paul would put it, I started with milk and advanced to solid food
over a long period of time. Then, I was given an opportunity to teach a Bible class at
the small Christian school where I was teaching math and science. It was my third year
of teaching and I accepted because it was an honor. At the same time, I felt
unprepared because it came as a surprise. Furthermore, I was given no teaching
materials other than the Bible. I got in a better groove, as the year went along, but
that summer, I was a man on a mission because I was determined to do better if the
opportunity arose again. As a result, I was reading the Bible extensively during the
summer of 1996 and grew closer to God than ever before. I remember reading the
signs in Matthew 24 and thinking how vague they all were. One could argue that
everything was complete, including the gospel being preached in every nation. I prayed
and asked God if those were the closest signs that pointed to the rapture. If so, fine,
but if the Bible had any closer indication, please show it to me. I opened my eyes,
looked at the next verse, and knew in my heart that the answer was right in front of me.
Jesus said, “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes
desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel - let the reader understand -”
(Matthew 24:15) Right then, I knew that any further understanding of the signs leading
to the rapture rested in Daniel’s mention of the “abomination that causes desolation”.
I had not planned to study end times but at that point, I felt it was my duty to investigate
to the best of my ability.
Right away, I saw a problem because the NIV study notes indicated that the
abomination had already taken place. Obviously, that didn’t seem right to me so I
began studying Middle Eastern history and current events. I studied obsessively for
years. Some of the verses were obvious to me but others did not fit the history I was
reading. I could tell that the previous interpretation was wrong but I did not have a
complete alternative to give. Needless to say, it was frustrating. Research was
difficult because the internet was limited in the late 90’s and the library was vast.
I tried my best to figure it all out but I finally had to give up because it consumed my
whole life. I understand now that God was just not ready to reveal the information yet.
In late 2009, I was inspired to renew my search and found that God was ready
to reveal the missing pieces. Naturally, I was excited and began writing a book on
Daniel 11 but I kept discovering new things and adding more. I was amazed at what
God was teaching me. After countless hours spanning more than a year and a half,
I had a small book but found that conventional publishers rarely accept anything,
especially like this, from an unknown author. That is unfortunate because
Paul indicated that God chooses the lowly and unknown to shame to wise.
Therefore, my efforts have resulted in this website. I cut a lot of unnecessary
information so it’s not as long as before. Actually, a website works better because
I can update current events. I don’t know how well this message will spread but the
important thing is that it’s available. I will advertise and market as best I can but my
resources are limited. I am confident that God will do His part when the time is right.
Please spread the word by hitting “like”, tell some other friends, or even your pastor.
God willing, people will be saved or at least come to a better understanding of
“end times” from the Bible.
