Book Release: King Jesus is Coming

Visitor: What inspired you to write this devotional?
Davis: After I completed my first book, Fear Not: Is There Anything Too Hard For God? I was impressed to write a second one. I prayed for almost a week to seek God’s will on the topic and woke up on the sixth morning with the topic “My Second Coming” impressed in my mind. Realizing the timeliness of this topic and with the direction of the Holy Spirit, I wrote King Jesus is Coming.
Visitor: How do you hope this book prepares others for the Second Coming?
Davis: Evil has plagued mankind since the fall, but never with such frequency or abandon. Earth is in peril. Sin, corruption, crime and selfishness are wearing it out like a garment—a tell-tale sign that Jesus is coming soon. The book is intended to be an unvarying reminder to the readers of the imminence of His second coming and the need to lift up their eyes to the heavens and seek the salvation which lasts forever before it is too late.
Davis: I daily experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit as I labored over this work. My awareness of Jesus’s Second Coming enfolded my entire being, prompting me to examine myself to ensure I am ready for this imminent, unparalleled event. It also moved me to not only pray diligently, but also to call out to God in anguished concern for the salvation of my loved ones while time lasts. Reading, researching and studying this topic also provided excellent new insight into Biblical prophecy in the enormity of Jesus’ love for fallen humanity and in the Spirit of Prophecy.
Visitor: This is your second book; do you have plans for a third?
Davis: Yes, in fact I have already started a third devotional book. The new book is tentatively titled Trials, Troubles and Tribulations: Love Taps from God. It explores why God allows suffering, the need to patiently wait for Him to alleviate it if not in this life in His kingdom, how disciples are expected to share in Jesus’ suffering, finding joy in suffering and trusting God through it all among other things
