Public speaking abstract:
topics and contents
Readers of my books have asked me if I would address their church or groups. To this end, they have suggested that I provide a general introductory synopsis for pastors and leaders who may not have read the books. Because my bio can be found on the webpage www.nr3international.com (or at the end of my books), this document will not provide a curriculum vitae but will describe the possible subjects for public presentations.
My God-given task is to say to Americans: “This is what God says…” using His Word. Whether they listen or fail to listen; I must go where God sends me, to whom He sends me to say what He tells me to say. The format of my task varies: I have written scripture-centered books (The Great Harvest of the Post-Allah World, Justin’s Tomorrows and Revelation the Fair God), I speak privately with individuals, and I am available to speak publicly as time and opportunity permit.
We live in a peculiar time in history. The things we see taking shape were promised millennia ago, my message is to alert us to their reality and imminence. The members of your fellowship will be strengthened and urged to commitment if they are attuned to the scriptures and they will be challenged if they are not.
Matthew relates Jesus words to us: “And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come” (24:14). Jesus was not referring to the expected, normal and cumulative effect of the missionary toil of the centuries. What Jesus promised in Matthew is a very specific, two-step process: a universal revealing of God’s reality, identity and divinity that will provoke a sustained global harvest.
The first step is the God-ordained, God-managed war of Gog and Magog of Ezekiel 38 and 39. It is the key event that will bring the Jews to their God through Messiah and it is a paramount fulcrum of understanding for the Gentiles. God’s purpose for this war is to reveal Himself, His reality, His identity and His power to every individual in the entire world. This divine intervention will segue into an energized harvest of the Good News everywhere—a global gathering of souls. I quote the relevant verses of Ezekiel 38 and 39 here (emphases are mine):
At that time in the distant future, I will bring you against my land as everyone watches, and my holiness will be
displayed by what happens to you, Gog. Then all the nations will know that I am the Lord. (38:16)
In this way, I will show my greatness and holiness, and I will make myself known to all the nations of the world. Then
they will know that I am the Lord. (38:23)
Then they will know that I am the Lord. “In this way, I will make known my holy name among my people of Israel. I will
not let anyone bring shame on it. And the nations, too, will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. That day of
judgment will come, says the Sovereign Lord. Everything will happen just as I have declared it. (39:6 – 8)
…It will be a glorious victory for Israel when I demonstrate my glory on that day, says the Sovereign Lord. (39:13)
In this way, I will demonstrate my glory to the nations. Everyone will see the punishment I have inflicted on them and the
power of my fist when I strike. And from that time on the people of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God. The
nations will then know why Israel was sent away to exile—it was punishment for sin, for they were unfaithful to their
God. (39:21 – 23)
When I bring them home from the lands of their enemies, I will display my holiness among them for all the nations to
see. Then my people will know that I am the Lord their God… I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken! (39:27 – 29)
There is absolutely no misinterpreting these words: every living person in the whole world will have seen YHWH (ADONAI-Elohim) as He is, for who He is and will be awed by His power and His unrestricted ability to carry out His will. This revelatory divine intervention is an event like no other event in the history of mankind. It is very specific in its content, very purposeful in its intent and very deliberate in its timing. The purpose of His universal revealing is redemptive. Outside the cross and the resurrection of Jesus, this is by far the most significant event of the Messianic age.
And today the war of Gog and Magog looms on our horizon; all the historical markers have been checked. Indeed, after a void of nearly 2,000 years, the land of Israel exists, Jews are moving there en masse. The very specific and unusual coalition of belligerents foretold by Ezekiel is taking shape and it is vociferously against the Jews and Israel. And finally, the technology that will make God’s actions observable by everyone, everywhere and in real time is now in use even in the most remote places on the planet—and it is affordable to all.
This momentous divine exposure will shock all. And in many individuals everywhere it will trigger an honest quest for the True God, which will open a unique opportunity to make followers of Jesus and thus to bring in the largest harvest of souls of all times. I will cover how God has prepared His armies of harvesters in many parts of the world (millions, all speaking the local languages where they live and immersed in the local culture. Therefore: the Good News about the Kingdom will indeed be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it). I will also expose the state of unpreparedness of many in the Western Church. I will develop what must happen in a person to obey the Great Commission command and to be a part of this awesome outreach here at home, in our own towns and neighborhoods.
I hear preachers call for a revival. But they do not provide the universal, historical and specific context for this final revival so the concept remains just a word, an expression of wishful thinking. In order to be effective, the people in the pews need to know the Why behind the what; this understanding is crucial for their commitment.
I will also develop the fulcrum effect of this divine revealing: after this one-day war of Gog and Magog, no one will be able to ignore YHWH / Jesus. So those who harden their hearts after Gog and Magog will specifically turn against YHWH / Jesus. Thus, alongside the migration of the righteous to Jesus, the multitude who reject YHWH / Jesus will rapidly slide into limitless evil and unchecked rebellion. Things will get rough. By the end of the time allotted by God for the great universal harvest (7 years or so), when the last Gentile comes to Jesus voluntarily; humanity will be absolutely divided into two incompatible blocks: the saved on one side, and the avowed enemies of YHWH / Jesus on the other. And with humanity having been sorted out, the times of the end will begin. Jesus will take His own and the lawless one will appear to lead the others.
I will also propose the sequence of prophetic events as we approach the end-times. The presentations on the war of Gog and Magog and its relevance for the Great Commission are based on the expository book: The Great Harvest of the Post-Allah World.
If this is the general subject that you would like me to address with your fellowship, at a conference or with a specific group; I propose that you share this abstract with your members or attendees in advance so that people may be prepared. I also propose that those who plan to attend be encouraged to submit, in writing, ahead of the meeting, the questions they may have regarding the specificity of our times, or the end-times. This would ensure that they would be sensitized to the subject in advance and it would also allow me to prepare for and to address their questions and concerns specifically. I am comfortable with keeping the flow of my presentations attuned to the need of each audience—no two presentations need to be the same. There is flexibility for dialogue.
Another topic of presentations is how to use the information Jesus gave John in the last 18 chapters of Revelation to effectively witness to someone who feels no need to surrender his life to Jesus. This is the topic of the book: Justin’s Tomorrows. This existential argumentation approach is relevant today as many Westerners have distanced themselves from a life-altering relationship with God through Jesus—they adopt a post-Christianity philosophy, so to speak. Members of your fellowship will recognize sons and daughters, nephews or nieces or grandchildren who have adopted this Jesus-resistant mentality. The presentation will provide understanding and arguments to reach their loved ones. It will also provide the same tools to your various outreach ministries.
Finally, there can be a series of presentations that center on the first three chapters of Revelation: Jesus’ epistle to the church. This presents a wide array of topics which cannot be covered in one session. These topics would be more appropriate for a retreat or a week-long series of meetings. Not only is there a lot of material to cover; but it is important that the audience be given the opportunity and time to pose questions—and that time be allotted to address these questions.
I am looking forward to hearing from you,
