I’m looking for people who are seriously looking for a place to discuss what we should do, especially within speculative fiction. I see this as a holy calling to help with the final harvest. This website is dedicated toward helping Christians, whom God has called to write or read genuinely Christian books.
Welcome to the Writing During the Last Days effort!
This is over my head: The Lord has told me to do this, but I’m seriously ill equipped. I’ve always been a lone wolf, a very asocial man who works best alone with my thoughts and ideas. As I have ventured out into social media, now that I self-publish full-time from my studio office at home, it has been a real joy to “meet” people from all over the world with similar interests and passions. My basic position is simple.
If we are called to write, we must never forget that Jesus is the core of it all. As we are obedient to Him, we learn holiness. As Peter quoted, “You shall be holy, for I am Holy.” He was quoting something the Lord said through Moses centuries earlier. What Moses had not foreseen was the mystery of the Church. Especially the part where we are made holy by His Holiness residing within us, in our spirits. He works His way out through our soul as we allow it and eventually shows us how to purify our flesh.
Your calling as an author may be a subset of your broader calling. But, the call points always to holiness, purity, the strait and narrow path which leads from the narrow gate. You will not be fulfilled as a Christian author until you answer this call to holiness.
Writing during the Last Days, what’s the panic?
It’s not a panic. But Jesus told us “this generation shall not pass away” before all of this came to a conclusion. A generation these days is 70-80 years. The start date was 1948. So, you can see the end is near.
We’re in the time of the end of the church. Once Jesus comes to pick up His Bride, the Lord’s focus shifts to Israel and the final seven years. Praise the Lord, we’ll not be here for that. The church is Messiah’s spouse, limited in size to those ready to go when Yeshua calls us up into the clouds to be with Him forever.
I’m not interested in end times arguments and kvetching. We have a short time in which to move.
As the world falls apart, we need Christian fiction
At least this is true for people like like I used to be, who are addicted to reading. Don’t accept anything less. Share the good stuff with the rest of us. In addition, the world [the kosmos: a Satanic system which seemingly runs this planet] needs Christian fiction. For many people, especially those immersed in the world online, excellent Christian fiction may be the best hope for salvation they ever see. It will quite possibly be the only glimpse they ever get of truly righteous living. Here’s an excerpt of this type of writing, from my latest book.
The production of truly Christian fiction takes place within battle
Writing During the Last Days is a major spiritual battle. The Creep cannot help us. In fact, he will do everything He can to discourage, distract, and/or destroy those of us called by God to write. The more Truth we include in our books, the more desperate the enemy will become. If you do not find conflict in the writing and production of your book you display your consecration [prayed up and committed—backed up by prayers of others]. —OR— You present no real threat and the Creep carefully leaves you alone. Obviously, a large range of positions lie between these extremes.
Mainly, the Holy Spirit provides the power we need to write transformational books. Without His involvement, you waste your time. Don’t get me wrong! I fully understand few are called to this. But those who are called remain the focus of this ministry.
Mainly, we want Christian discussion—not apologetics. For several reasons, authors and readers need a place to share and ask open questions without fear of reprisal or ridicule. In the age of the Great Falling Away, being Christian becomes not politically correct [though we’re not cancelled yet]. We have pledged fealty to another King, in a glorious Kingdom without end. This makes worldly governments a bit queasy, usually resulting in rage. After all, we are expecting the overthrow of the Creep’s worldly system. We may also have members from areas of the globe where Christianity is illegal. We need to be able to keep confidences.
