  1. Luke 12:37-46 “Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself {to serve,} and have them recline {at the table,} and will come up and wait on them. “Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds {them} so, blessed are those {slaves.} “But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. “You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone {else} as well?” And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. “Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. “But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, {both} men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect {him} and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers.

    ….”.assign him a place with the unbelievers.” This is quite a statement and forces those on both sides of the Calvinist and Arminian spectrums to take heed. You are right about warning us about sleeping . I believe that one of the biggest deceptions in the end times is the watered down gospel. There are so many hard teachings that Christ taught – including the end times. When the Great Commission is ever taught, the second part is seldom emphasized: Matt. 28:16:20 and teaching them to OBEY EVERYTHING ( my emphasis) I have commanded you.

    I once went to an easy belivism church that was pre-trib and had the Schofield Bible that was influenced by Darbyism.

    I never questioned their teachings until one day they predicted about how bad the economy would be in the year 2000 because of Y2K. Remember that ? They thought the rapture was going to be very near.

    This forced me to study scripture on my own. I had my own “awakening ” around that time. I started questioning why my church never taught anything but the pretrib , when I discovered the opposing teaching in scripture on my own.

    Your books will help re-enforce what I have already found. I know there is still so much I dont know. There is even debate among pre-wrath or post tribbers on who Mystery Babylon is.

    I am looking forward to getting your books.

    1. Great points Johnny. If we look at Luke 8 there are not two choices in regard to faith (believe vs. unbelief) but 4!! My next book may be about that very topic. Hope you enjoy the book, but it is not about that topic specifically.

  2. Nelson, what is the difference between the ‘Leaders Edition’ and the version we will be able to buy this October ‘ish. I feel the reason the bible is being unlocked nowdays is because individual people are reading it in large groups via the internet instead of ‘Leaders’ doing it for us. The RCC has been teaching their interpretation of the bible for centuries and look where it’s gotten them & many followers – so many unbiblical beliefs, traditions & practices to count. I no longer trust any of the so called enlightened teachers & leaders to instruct me about the bible anymore – I just need great researchers/guides like you to point me in the right direction or open my eyes to prophecy I haven’t noticed yet.

    1. My current plan is to make both editions available so that if you want to buy an edition to give away to a pastor, you’ll choose the leadership edition and if you want one for yourself you’ll choose the mass market edition. The leadership edition discusses the responsibility of leaders, the mass market will discuss those same issues from the perspective of someone in the pews. The mass market edition will also have a bonus chapter not included in the leadership edition which will examine a case study on the possibility of the Rapture occurring on Yom Teruah. I have chosen to not include this chapter in the leadership edition because it is enough for them to digest the material in the main section of the book.

      As far as leaders go, Jesus calls us to be servant leaders; to serve those we lead. This is the attitude of Christ. Some of our current leaders are this way, some are not and are self centered. It is like any other facet of life. Perhaps this book will reveal who falls into each category and maybe we can pray, some will change to be more Christ-like. God is in charge of these things.

    1. To God’s elect, exiles scattered throughout the provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, TO BE OBEDIENT TO CHRIST (emphasis mine) and sprinkled with his blood: 1 Peter

    1. Your statement actually is the definition of “elect” Johan. It is a difficult concept, though, far beyond the scope of this comment section. Christians have debated back and forth about how personal choice figures into election. When Ken said “become the elect,” I took it to mean become the type of person worthy of God’s election. To live a life controlled by the Spirit of God.

  3. Nelson,
    Great interview. Tremendous book. The one thing that is not touched on is that your book is an excellent guide for those believers who are struggling to become the elect. It truly is a type of treasure map which believers can dig into, mind, and find a golden nugget, which becomes an incentive to dig deeper for the truth. To become part of the Elect is to place God first in all things. The first commandment is very specific….have no gods before me. Taking the mark of the beast is branding oneself as a worshipper of Satan. It is also insulting God by giving credit of the creation of his own image and likeness to Satan, rather than the Creator.
    Extremely happy to have found your website. You are blessed.
