My first published book (2010) is available in two different formats. As a paperback edition it can be purchased on Amazon.com via this link. This allows for personal and family reading and study- anywhere and anytime, as well as home church or cell group review and discussion. Via Amazon’s Look Inside feature you can read the Introduction, see the Table of Contents, and read brief excerpts of different chapters.
It is also available as a free PDF download on the OpenHeaven.com website on their resources page… here. Please scroll down to the bottom of the page under other authors for the PDF link. This format would be 220 8.5 x 11″ pages without the cover art. Although it can be read on your computer, it is less convenient and does not allow portability. I chose to make it available both ways for expanded exposure, because I believe it has a very timely message concerning where we are in GOD’s time-table in the consummation of all things.
America is in grave peril! Looking from our shores to the mayhem and destruction, misery and death that is happening worldwide… what do we see:
- Rioting and destruction in the streets of England- this is a country where Fabian Socialism has promoted and implemented a huge entitlement society that they can no longer afford to fund. Other similar protests and rioting is going on in Greece, Italy, Spain- western economies that are now crushed with debt… and yet our financial crisis is far worse!

- Somalia is experiencing severe famine, widespread pestilence, and radical terrorism. 300 children are starving to death daily while United Nations food supplies are either confiscated or held up by Islamic factions. Christians continue to disappear daily with entire families murdered or enslaved. This is not the only African country that is suffering to this depth of horror… please be aware and pray!
- Libya, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Muslim nations are daily headlines with protests, bombings, warfare, and death continuing… so much so that we’ve lost track of the numbers of those dying… and persecuted Christians are the highest casualties.
- Our United States Federal government system has turned into a pathetic joke of incompetence causing 3 trillion dollars of company and individual assets to vaporize in thin air in just the past 15 days… because we didn’t have the spine to implement the Cut, Cap, and Balance plan that would have proved to the world that we were serious about getting our financial house in order. Our 14 trillion dollars of debt will balloon to 23 trillion by the end of the decade! Now the Federal Reserve wants to print even more funny money (with no substantive backing) that is in reality hardly worth the paper and ink it’s printed on!
We the people of this great Republic as a whole citizenry don’t fully understand how very bad it really is. Many do because we have been hit with loss of work, loss of assets, even loss of homes… all the different aspects of the American Dream that we have been divinely privileged to live for so long. GOD’s grace has been with us… in spite of our waywardness. But sadly we kicked GOD, the Bible, and prayer out of school in 1963- and since then we’ve stood by while moral decay has permeated all aspects of our society, from the oval office to Skid Row. Before that year disciplinary problems in public schools were limited to chewing gum, running in the hallways, and talking in class- without permission. Now it’s daily gang activity, guns, violence, drug addiction, teen pregnancy, abortion, and people graduating without being able to read, understand our history, and compete for career employment.
David Barton’s book- America: To Pray or Not to Pray says it all. Please browse the book on Amazon via the name link. He reveals over 35 different graphs of social issues that have spiraled downward since the Supreme Court ruled against GOD in our educational system. And of course since then the ACLU has made sure they sue almost daily for the bogus ‘separation of church and state’ issue that totally contradicts and subverts the first amendment of our Constitution, forcing Christianity out of our American public square.
I am not hopeless… but only hopeful that a Great Awakening is imminent! The question is: How far does GOD have to humble America before we all repent as a nation? I thought to quote Deuteronomy Chapter 28 in its entirety, but that will be your responsibility to study and ponder. We have been privileged as a nation like no other in the history of mankind. And yet we have assumed that it’s because we’re special somehow. NO! It is only because from the pilgrims’ landing until today we have been the recipients of answered prayers: the prayers of the first settlers who dedicated this continent to the Lord Jesus Christ; the prayers of all the godly men and women over the past 400 years; the prayers of our founding fathers- signers of the Declaration of Independence, many of whom lost everything including their lives- to fulfill the call for a nation like no other in mankind’s history: a nation that was founded by YHWH (Jehovah) GOD just as much as Israel was… and both of these nations are still the apple of His eyes- because we have been the stewards of the true oracles of GOD revealed in the Holy Bible.
Read Deuteronomy Chapter 28… and notice that in the 68 verses, the first 14 detail the blessings of obedience and submission to the true and living GOD- while the remaining 54 verses are very graphic in describing the curses that would fall upon willful disobedience. Before I became a mature Christian I did not fathom how a loving Holy GOD would allow this all to happen based upon our disobedience. I came to understand that the judgments of GOD are progressive- He strives to cause us to repent, and turn back to Him that He may continue to bless us. But when His Hand of Grace is slowly removed, the intensity of the judgments deepen until final destruction is the result. We as a nation must turn back to GOD- before it is too late! The evidence is clear and irrefutable! We have but a short time… since clearly judgment is already upon us!
LORD, HAVE MERCY… Father- I pray that you will still give us space to repent as a nation. That we will eliminate abortion (the blood of 58 million innocent babies in America alone [since Roe v. Wade- Jan.’73] continually cries out to GOD for judgment); that we would stand for the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman as You have ordained in Your Holy Word; that we would individually and as a nation obey the Ten Commandments and the Perfect Law of Love that Jesus gave us all:
Matthew 22:37-40… Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
… And that we will individually stand for the truths of Your Holy Bible; that we will be responsible citizens of this republic ensuring that the reins of government are entrusted only to men and women who are people of integrity, who will do what is right and best for our country in light of Your Perfect Revealed Will.
In Jesus’ Holy Name, AMEN.
