This book is a passionate call to fellow believers to prepare for the Church's final hour. God's faithful saints need unshakable faith and "lamps full of oil" to get through "a long, dark night" before the bridegroom comes. It's almost prophetic midnight, and Christians have starring roles in the Revelation of Jesus Christ According to Jesus' parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins, half of those anticipating the bridegroom's rescue made inadequate preparations. This is a warning for us, the Church We're all waiting for His return and rescue, but only half of us are truly prepared for the dark and difficult night Genuine belief is strongly connected to preparation. This book answers important questions, such as: Will Christians be deceived into taking the mark of the beast? Is the United States in the Bible? Is there an early harvest, secret rapture of the Church before the Coming of the Lord? This book may be a strong wake-up call, and a bit unsettling for some Christians. Hopefully, any fear or controversy created will bring the reader into positions of repentance, revival, and readiness for all that God has in store, to usher in the new heaven and earth Cathy holds a bachelor's degree in education from Western Michigan University and served as an educator in the public schools for thirty-seven years.
