Interview with Author Perry Ennis
By: Brian Knight
Today I conducted with author Perry Ennis. He has a powerful message to share with his book "Prepare for the Coming of Messiah." Let's find out a little about this author and his thought provoking, inspirational book. (Perry's response in bold.)
1. Who is author Perry Ennis?
I’m a believer in the truth of the Holy Scriptures that reveal the one true living Creator/Savior God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I am a sinner that has been redeemed by the blood of the perfect Lamb of God, His Son, Jesus, Yahshua the Messiah. I am a humble, sanctified person that prayed for, and received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of the living God, Yahweh that empowers me to live for Him and fulfill the purposes He has for my live. I believe that one of the most important purposes that our heavenly Father envisioned for me to fulfill in this life was the researching, writing and publishing of my book entitled “Prepare for the Coming of Messiah,” and now the successful promotion of the book so people everywhere will know about it and it’s importance. I am very blessed to be the husband of my wife Deborah and the father of our children Amanda and Joshua.
2. You researched end-time prophecy for 26 years. How long did it take you to actually write your book?
3. What motivated you to write this in-depth, detailed novel?
Our Lord and Savior, bless be His Holy name, had mercy on me and saved me in the spring of 1972 from a close call with suicide. From the time I began studying the scriptures to learn more about our Creator and Savior, I was drawn to the scriptures that reveal the truth about the first and second coming of our master and King, Jesus whose name in Hebrew is translated and spelled Yahshua, or Yeshua. The more I studied and began to understand the prophecy scriptures that relate to the first and second coming of the Messiah, the more compelled I was to study and learn more.
4. Where can people purchase your book?
From our website: www.messiahiscoming.net
5. Why should people purchase your book?
So that they can read and comprehend Biblically based answers to the difficult questions that people from all backgrounds have regarding the rapid changes we are witnessing take place in our world today. It is imperative that all people, believers and non-believers, come to the truth of understanding that we are living in the last years of the last generation of this age before a new and different age is ushered in. The catastrophic events that have been happening in recent years and those happening now are only a preview of even more devastating catastrophes that will continue to escalate in numbers and intensity so that the very core and foundations of the physical earth and the societies of the nations of this world will be shaken like no other time in all of history. Our Creator has inspired me by the indwelling of His spirit to write a book that includes many of the scriptures of His words on the pages, in order to warn people everywhere to repent and prepare for His coming righteous judgment of nations and individuals. Our Creator is literally bringing about the end of this age as we know it in order to establish His Kingdom here on earth that will be made up of those that have accepted Him. The birthing of His Kingdom on this earth will come forth with much violence and devastation because Satan the present ruler of the world will not give up his kingdom without creating through his pawns, an unprecedented war at the end call Armageddon.
6. What is the message you wish to convey with 'Prepare for the Coming of Messiah'?
Educate yourself about the reality of the shadow government within the government of the US political system. Research the famine and flu plagues that are coming to this country and prepare yourself and your family the best you can for the worst. But most importantly, know who your Creator and Savior is. Recognize that you, me and all people have committed sin, and then accept what He has made available that will pay and cancel your sin debt. Trust His Holy Word from in the scripture of the Bible. Be prepared to die at any moment, because you may and will at some point in time. Have the assurance that you can stand before the awesome Creator of this universe without fear because when you had the opportunity in this life, you entered into a close, loving, covenant relationship with Him and He knows you.
7. You have so many positive endorsements from many people and groups. Do you feel validated about your research from these positive endorsements?
Yes I do. It truly blesses my heart to know that the scriptures and my paraphrases and teachings in the book have helped many people as they continue to grow through their faith journey. I like helping people everywhere, most that I will never meet on this side of eternity. The best way I can help them is to provide what they need most in life apart from food and the basics, and that is answers from the scriptures and my testimony that there is a true, and real living God that loves each and every one of us, and who desires to have an intimate relationship with us so He can call us one of His and bless us with all that we need in this life including protection through the coming horrific tribulation.
8. What has this novel meant to you as an author and a Christian?
It has been a true labor of love of typing and editing many nights and weekends over an eight year period. In the book I have expounded upon wonderful revelation knowledge of the end of days prophecies to enlighten the reader of the master plan of our Creator leading up to the final showdown between Himself, His redeemed and His holy warrior angels against His and our adversary, Satan the devil, his fallen angles and the unsaved of the world that will at time be a part of the anti-Christ beast system. Helping the reader to grasp and improve their understanding of the important second coming of Messiah prophecies pales in comparison to the importance of helping the reader to make the sincere and conscious decision to accept the blood of Jesus, Yahshua the Messiah as payment for their sin debt, and to ask Him to impart His Holy Spirit into their life so they will be saved and have the assurance of eternal life. If the significant investment I have made in time, money and hard work produces the fruit of just one person reading this book and making the most important decision there is in life which is to accept Jesus, Yahshua, and be born of His Spirit, then all of the investment will be worth it and I will rejoice with that individual throughout all of eternity, forever.
9. You reference many different translations of the Holy Bible. Why?
I used the five different translations I had during the time I was writing the book because when teaching an important truth from the scriptures, one translation will often convey a better rendering of truth that is being taught than others. All through the book when scripture is on the page there was a studying process I did to attempt to use the best translation I had for the readers benefit.
10. What's next for author Perry Ennis?
My heart’s desire is for this book to be well received by people from many backgrounds all over the world so these important messages will reach as many people as possible because we don’t have but a few years before the dreaded great tribulation transitions onto the world scene. I hope to retire within the next year or two so I can be available to travel and teach from the book at conferences, churches and wherever our Heavenly Father Yahweh opens the doors for me go. I’ve been blessed to be able to be a part of a tour to Israel this coming November of 09. I have had a great desire to take in the land and culture of the land of our ancient Israelite ancestors for many years now and Father is faithful as always, and has made the trip possible at his appointed time. I know that He has plans for me to be a part of assisting many people to make aliyah to the place of protection in Israel just before the persecution of the Great Tribulation begins. There is a much greater than the first exodus to the promised land coming, when those of the ten lost tribes of Ephraim join with their brother of the tribes of Judah on the land to fulfill the prophecies in Ezekiel 37 and become the restored Israel that has been Father Yahweh desire from the beginning. I pray that it is in His will that I can be a part of assisting with that incredible part of His awesome end-time plan.
11. Would you like to add any closing thoughts today?
Our Creator loves you and I more then we can possibly comprehend in this life. Seek to know Him through prayer and His Holy Scriptures recorded in the Bible with all of your heart. Desire to understand the covenant that He established with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and the prophets, and enter into that covenant by putting your faith in the blood of His only Son, Jesus who came forth from His Father’s throne in heaven to be born as a human being and give His life so that all who accept him can be saved and not perish. Know this, we are certainly in the final years that are winding down before the time of the great persecution and tribulation begins. The time is coming when everyone will have to choose who the one true, creator God is. That decision will seal the person making it destiny for eternity. In every situation in life that requires a decision you can only make the best decision if you have the best information. Read and study, the Word of truth so you will not be ashamed when you stand before your judge and king. It is written, "They have conquered him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus, Yahshua) and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death.” Revelation 12:11 NRSV
I pray that each person that reads these questions and answers will be blessed by them and encouraged to read and glen more truth from the Holy Scriptures. I pray our Heavenly Father Yahweh’s blessings of health, provision and protection to be upon you and your family members now and throughout all of your life, in the name of our risen Savior and coming King, Jesus, Yahshua the Messiah. Amen. Shalom!
