Dear Friends, this is David Telbat. Thanks for joining me for, “What Christians should Expect for America,” in which I also share my purpose for writing The Steadfast Series. I feel we really are in America’s Last Days. True, the end probably won’t happen like I portray it in my post-apocalyptic series of novellas, but it is coming. I’m not a doomsday or conspiracy theorist, only a Bible-believing man who’s seen God’s hand at work enough to know His Word is worth listening to.
What’s about to Happen is Expected
I often speak to self-professing atheists who are offended by the fact that God has fulfilled prophecy in the past, and will fulfill more very soon. In all their offendedness, they criticize Christians for believing in a God who flooded the world with water for its wickedness, and will soon flood the world with the judgement of fire. All around the world are signs of the flood from Noah’s day. We shouldn’t doubt that God will deal exactly as He says He will—we can expect it.
Jesus is recorded as to pondering humanity’s inability to gauge the seasons of the ages, yet we can gauge the seasons of nature. When there are blossoms on a tree, then we know when the fruit on that tree will be ready for picking.
For our generation, Jesus might have said that we’re really good at determining buying trends and clothing styles, but we’re terrible at judging the signs of His pending coming for His Church and the wrath upon the world that will follow. May we not be so ignorant. Let us see the signs of the season, and wait for Him with expectation!
The Purpose of The Steadfast Series
The purpose of The Steadfast Series is to get us thinking about the end of days, and to submit our character to become like Christ’s character. The hurricane sirens are blaring, but are we running for the shelter of Christ? Do we see Him as our life, and Him as our eternity?
There have been wicked and sinful nations in the past, but in my opinion, what we now see globally is just as wicked and sinful, and possibly more so. Historical records indicate catastrophe striking where it’s least expected, due to sin that so blinds those inhabitants. Let’s be ready for Christ’s return, because His return is expected. Hundreds of years before He came He said that He would come. And He did. Then, He said He would return again when this world becomes ripe for judgement. It is. And He will.
Check out The Steadfast Series for a picture of steadfast characters in the midst of a fictional perspective of America’s Last Days. Only the steadfast in faith will be spared the wrath to come. Let’s get ready!

Prayer Prompt: While women are forced to work in the brothels of India, their children are often forced to hide underneath the beds and wait for them. Pray for the funding of the Day and Night Care Center in India. The center will provide a safe, Christian place for children, will offer kids a chance to a brighter future, and will give them much-needed distance from the brothels in the red-light district. The center will house 25 children ages 0-10 years. To read more about this Vision Beyond Borders ministry, visit VBB Featured Project–Day & Night Care Center.
