About the Book

First & foremost this book is an enriching growth in the power of prophecy and is considered an inspirational writing which the author has chosen to share revealing a faith and a hope for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It reflects an intensive study in eschatology and consists of Seven Letters which revisit the biblical call of the Jewish regathering and restoration of Israel the nation in 1948. This event occurred after almost 2000 years of non-existence. Curious, I sought to know why and based on my own studies of God’s word was moved to write it down. It is clear to me that Israel rebirth is a key sign of the return of Christ. These are the seven letters:

1) The Necessity of the Return of God’s Chosen People
2) Prophecy is Alive and Well and Israel is the Key
3) The Paradox of the Seventieth Week of Daniel
4) Ten Horned Kingdom Led by the Anti-Christ
5) Who is Mystery Babylon?
6) Israel Promised Redemption & The Tribulation Saints
7) The Christ and His Glorious Appearance

These seven snapshots of key events and or perspectives reveal to me the reality of Christ’s coming Kingdom. It is felt that as a watchman, we must keep the Blessed Hope alive as we look for the earnest expectation to evangelize and revive the gospel as the soon coming King nears. I believe this book will help strengthen your faith and forewarn you to be forearmed in these troubling times as we grow in the prophetic knowledge of God. It is said by God “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. With the gift of prophecy we gain clarity and casting aside all doubt we stand firm in our faith empowered by the HolySpirit. The biblical term “end times” is the time for a new time for the saints in Christ and his eternal nature has been proven after 2000 years of his marvelous grace. It is all in the scripture and this book is dedicated to bringing these ancient biblical words from the past to show the power of God in declaring our future.

There is also the inclusion of “Inspired Writings” which has poetry, visions, prophetic utterance and personal testimonials of how Christ has impacted the life of the author. The articles reflect my personal journey in the walk of my faith.

Kirkus Review

BY GREGORY A. BOOKER ‧ RELEASE DATE: NOV. 29, 2002

Booker’s debut collection attempts to share the epiphany he reached when returning to Christianity after a 21-year lapse.

The end of the world is nigh, perhaps. Enlivened by questions surrounding the end-of-times prophecy, and piqued by the rebirth of a physical Israel, Booker found himself devouring a series of books on the Bible and the second coming of Christ. These forays into popular eschatology awakened in him the sense that prophets, when discussing the days leading up to an apocalypse, were talking about the present day. In an effort to alert the world to his discovery, he began writing this series of letters to share the scriptural revelations he’d uncovered. The letters and their supporting material were written in the early ’90s, and some of the horrors they anticipate are no longer easily conceivable. It’s a persistent distraction that many of the current events Booker explores are no longer current. Readers may also find it hard to reconcile his prophetic credentials with pronouncements as factually incorrect, and as topically diverse, as a declaration that Catholics worship Mary, the New Testament was written by people who knew Jesus directly, the Jews killed Jesus, and Adam and Eve lived 6,000 years ago. The arguments are even less likely to compel readers whom he repeatedly calls “lost”—Jews, Israelis, Catholics, Arabs, Muslims, etc. Though the text seems devoid of genuine malice, the misunderstandings and misrepresentations of these traditions, along with the blunt anticipations of their demise, can be off-putting. The sincerity and colloquialisms are intermittently charming but overshadowed by general disorganization, grammatical imprecision and frequent bibliographic errors.

An earnest, well-intentioned project likely to interest readers intrigued by the end times, despite its limited fatidic power

I have a desire to address some issues concerning what seem negative but after the re-release of my book, has been corrected. We must remember, the Kirkus review is dated 2002 . There are a few comments I owe to my potential readers to be addressed in the view of the author. My view is as follows:
1) The use of the word “general disorganization” while it could seem that way, is more like “formatted differently” since it uses an outline style in some areas aiding in the presentation of its inspirational setting.
2) “Grammatical imprecision” Re-released book focused on improving editorial accuracy minimizing the impact to inspiration fluidity that can occur in this type of writing. Highly expressed and yet visionary in its proclamation.
3) “Frequent bibliographic errors”. This reads a lot worse than it is. It means presentational errors such as missing or incorrect bibliographic details implying spelling errors and at least five unexplained acronyms. Kirkus gave no examples but these issues were addressed through my reissued book.
4) The reviewer’s comment may actually support this book in a miraculous way. Kirkus states “The letters and their supporting material were written in the early ’90s, and some of the horrors they anticipate are no longer easily conceivable.”It support the writers’ prophetic based view because in 2022 that statement is no longer the case with the threat of nuclear use by Russia and is the very reason why I revisited this work for publication. Kirkus gives a more technical review on inspiration but this work is not meant to meet perfect grammar standards but allow a flow of information as I was moved and in some cases writing in utterance.
5) Other than that, the last comment summarizes well and does in fact recommend the book. I am not sure what is meant by “limited fatidic”?
