Confessions of a Doomsday Prophet
I have no pithy sayings, no personal anecdotes, no elegant words, but I have a message burning in my heart, a message that needs to be sounded, a message that needs to be heard.
It is a message that is not Politically Correct, nor does it yield to the verdict of the Court of Popular Opinion. To the Institution it is insufferable, to the Orthodox it is revolting, to the Tradition it is challenging, to the Dark Deeds it is exposing, and for these reasons often repudiated and unheeded.
It requires honest introspection, sincere evaluation. It must be measured in terms of veracity. Its standard is conformity to the message of the Holy Scriptures. It appeals to the Truth of morality and ethics, of justice and righteousness, expressions of lovingkindness and charity, while including an admonition calling for repentance, a repentance that leads to revival, reconciliation with God and our Neighbor, restoration to broken hearts and lives, reformation of belief and practice, and Spiritual Awakening impacting the Community.
It is a message of renewed faith in God, Jesus, and the leading of the Holy Spirit; Hope for troubling times; strength to remain faithful in a world of confusion and contradictions.
The Doom and Gloom is removed when it is understood that while the Message seeks to honor God it is also presented with care and compassion for God’s people, and an effort to repair a broken world.
Relentlessly, repeatedly an Alarm is sounded, a point is pressed, but always a labor of love and hope.
"But if I say, 'I will not remember Him Or speak anymore in His name,' then in my heart it becomes like a burning fire shut up in my bones; and I am weary of holding it in, and I cannot endure it. - Jeremiah 20:9
