The Bossy Church Lady’s Take On The End Times
In case you didn’t know already, I’m a MAJOR fan of horror; however, the most
frightening book that I’ve ever read is the book of Revelation. Why? Because
it’s realÈ not one word is make believe. No. Everything written within the book
of Revelation will happen sometime in the future. Some say that they doubt
the tribulation will happen, others claim that it has already happened. But let
me point out second Peter 3, which tells us that though God would rather have
us all come to repentance so that none of us will perish, He will do what He
Why did I write this book? Because understanding the end times takes a LO-
O-O-NG time, a LOT of note taking, and a whole lot of dedication, I wrote this
book for people like you (Yes you!) who lack the time to sit down and learn
about the end times on your own. Hopefully, if you are running around like a
chicken with its head cut offÐlike I used to doÐtrying to make ends meet,
taking care of your young children, or your aging parents, you can take a little
time out of your busy day to read this book. And rather than write book that’s
dry and lacks personality (there are plenty of them out there) I wrote this book
to be as simple and straightforward as possible in order to teach you all about
the end times in common, everyday language without you having to do the hard
work. Also, I figured, what the heck? Since I had so many notes on the subject
anyways, I might as well share those notes with others.
One other thing that I’d like to quickly establish: I’m not pious. God alone
knows that I’m far from perfect (there’s plenty of clutter in my back yard, if
you know what I mean) but I love the Lord and you so much that I’m doing
what He has called me to do, which is write.
All whining about my sore wrist and fingers aside, if you’ve already read my
testimony on my website at, then you
already know the next part. But for those of you who don’t know, I’ll retell the
story here. Back when I was a new ChristianÐback before God made the
hillsÈLOLÐI was full of questions about Jesus, especially about end times, and
no one to sit down with me and answer my questions. I was so ravenous for the
Word of God that I faithfully attended church every Sunday, attended Bible
study on Wednesday evenings, and read the Bible at home.
One Wednesday evening, after Bible study wound to a close, I asked the
pastor what the woman clothed with the sun in Revelation 12 meant.
Want to know what he said?
Nothing! He simply shrugged his shoulders and stared at me blankly.
“What do you mean?” I asked, staring back at him.
“I don’t know,” he stated simply.
“Say whaaaat?” I thought as I gazed back into his eyes.
You got it! The pastor didn’t know what the verse meant. Since then, I’ve
discovered that some people feel that the tribulation is too horrible to talk
about; others (like my husband, bless his heart) feel that since they won’t be
