On the Air with Pastor Dan Catlin

Oct. 20, 2016


It is pitch black and blustery.  It sounds as if I’m on a storm-tossed sea. Rhythmic waves of wind rush down the northern slopes of the Olympic foothills rocking the forest of cedars, Big-leaf maples, alders, and hemlocks that surround our home. Although we’ve had some higher gusts that prompted me to shut down my computer earlier (last night,)  I estimate the  averaging wind speed to be  about 35 mph.  A normal October night for where we live.

I wonder what the weather will be like at 5 this evening—October 20th. Will the wind die down, remain steady, or become stronger? Will we have power come 5pm? Maybe. Maybe not. But regardless of the unknown, we do have to make plans. Beginning at 5pm PST I’m scheduled to have a discussion about the book, Practical Preparation of the Lord’s Second Coming, over the radio (Internet radio) with Pastor Dan Catlin of www.prophecyhour.com

I have never done anything like this before. He sent me an Email invitation to discuss the book and, after praying with a few brothers and sisters in Christ, I agreed to do so.

I’ve no idea how this will go but trust in my Heavenly Father that He will touch listeners through our discussion. You are welcome to listen to the broadcast here:


Please pray for us and with us for others.

I know Pastor Dan has a mission for the homeless that could use donations. Here’s a news clip about his mission:


And I want you to know that the “mission” God has given me is to give away KJV Bibles to anyone who needs one with most of the proceeds from the book sales of Practical Preparation for the Lord’s Second Coming. The remainder of any proceeds will go to maintaining an Internet presence for the book and any other small expenses to do with this book.

Thank you all.

Here is my synopsis:

It’s a scriptural fact that saints are very active on earth during the Great Tribulation. Isn’t it time Christians began preparing the Tribulation saints for that experience?

Practical Preparation for the Lord’s Second Coming is a tour of God’s Word concerning those Christians who are alive at the Lord’s second coming and how we can prepare them for it. God has a fantastic plan for Tribulation saints. He who knows the end from the beginning has given that specific generation of saints explicit directions along with words of hope and encouragement.

Tribulation saints need to know that living within the Great Tribulation signifies they’ve made it; they are living (and/or dying) in the ultimate time of greatest hope that ever was or will ever be. They need to recognize and utilize surrounding resources and memorize specific directions on what to do and say and where to go as God instructed. Practical Preparation for the Lord’s Second Coming provides a structure for the beginning of those lessons.

There are important directives concerning the Great Tribulation within this book that neither priests nor preachers have bothered educating their flocks about because so many of them presume the Great Tribulation is not something that they will have to personally contend with. Just because we don’t know who the Tribulation saints are or exactly when the Great Tribulation occurs does not mean these instructions should be ignored.

No child should be afraid to ask a parent “Why?” or “How come?” and Christians are no exception. Rest assured, God’s not going to leave any believer behind. Practical Preparation for the Lord’s Second Coming will explain why. If every believer is equipped with this information, no matter when these prophetic events happen, the Tribulation saints will be better prepared for the ordeal.

The scriptures state that it’s the foolishness of the cross that trips unbelievers up and that it’s the despised things of the world that God has chosen. (1 Corinthians ) It does not state that one must be some Biblical guru or a highly educated theologian who looks like a movie star in order to gain understanding when reading the Bible. Our faith is based on substance and evidence and because it is, we need to take a hard, logical look at what God says concerning the Great Tribulation and what He commands His Tribulation saints to do and we need at least a fundamental recognition of His reasoning, not something as intangible as “blind” or “plagiarized” faith.

Practical Preparation for the Lord’s Second Coming covers what God has to say concerning the Tribulation saints and offers hope through action by exercising strategic, creative thinking.

PRACTICAL PREPARATION FOR THE LORD’S SECOND COMING is now for sale at these storefronts:






My intentions are to blog here on subjects relating to the above book, including the out of doors. I hope we can have many fruitful discussions here about these topics.
