If there has been a particular call or leading in my life, there is one that has been there since from a very young age. Through dreams and "visions" compounded by observation and study . . . I have always felt and thought strongly I would live in troubled times and that the "troubles" would increase to days of outright tribulation and persecution. . . .
The majority of my writing and speaking has been with this in mind; to help prepare mentally, emotionally, spiritually . . . those of like mind and of likely similar "destiny". . . .
Persecution . . . martyrdom . . . have these too been a powerful impression and expectation in your life? More in a bit. . . .
