It’s taken several years of serious research and prodding from the Christian underground, but now that the day is approachingit looks like pastors across the nation are finally catching on and speaking out. Whatever their motivations are, at least more people will hear about the incredible series of events happening this Fall.

I’ll finish this off with a letter from a pastor who wrote to our friend Daniel Matson from WatchForTheDay.org:
Good morning Daniel,
Just wanted you to know what’s happening out here in the battle field…
Since the Revelation 12 sign was revealed to me, I have been excited… excited that WE, of all people, would be here to see what generations upon generations have been eager to see… Naively, I had no idea in my head that there would be anything but joy at the revelation… I was concerned mostly about how I was going to get a hold of enough pastors to let them know – if they hadn’t already – to prepare their flocks to discipleship and action in these remaining days for the sake of Christ. Since this was a revealed sign straight out of Scripture, it never crossed my mind that it would be ever taken by other pastors as heresy. Yes, I knew there might be some objections and they would need to be addressed, but I also understood that we are supposed to be a Christ-centered church bound in the uniting bond of perfect completeness with grace, kindness, gentleness, noble conduct being a part of our character in Him. I’m not generally a naive guy, but good grief, did I miss this one.
I had prayed that I would be able to reach enough pastors… and sheep as well.
About a month ago, a pastor whom I thought friendly, but had not had a chance to talk to yet about all this, turned me into the District office of whom I am a licensed minister as a “false teacher.” They had got my comprehensive notes from my teaching to the church, obviously had not read them, but saw 23 September and accused me of date-setting.
I had a meeting with two top officials of the state district. I was only able to give a brief summary of the sign and it’s context. One recognized a very vague possibility in the revelation, the other outright accused me of damaging the reputation of the church by date setting and so forth (no matter how often I calmly appealed to The Word as providing the date, it made no difference to this fellow). Not to go into details, but I am “under investigation” until I meet with the executive board – the “governors and kings” of the district – to explain the Rev. 12 sign to them the week the sign takes place.
I had asked God to help provide people to talk to about it and He nominated me of all people to talk to nine “governors”… just thought I’d share that with you from the trenches… it’s been a tough time out here, thank God for my church family of watchman, or it would be tougher still.
I hope all is well and thanks for your recent work on the Days of Noah. Just want you to know that I’m praying for you and your family in these wild last days; our discipleship comes at a cost, of course, and it’s certainly costing our family and I’m sure yours is not without that as well.
By His Grace, Pastor __________
