Fantasy and horror are God’s favorite two genres when it comes to prophecy.
I wrote this article for Speculative Faith, an excellent website for Christians who love fantasy, sci-fi, and all things speculative.
I take a look at the elements of fantasy and horror that the Revelation uses to inspire “holy fear.”
Read it here.
I got this article published on AmericanVision.org, a ministry I have learned a lot from about Bible prophecy.
So it was an honor to have this published here.
Is Revelation a global judgment of the entire earth or a local judgment of the Land of Israel in the first century?
YOU WILL BE SURPRISED.
I say the latter.
Go read the article here.
I wrote this article that Gary DeMar has published on his website here.
It’s about how we tend to misread Revelation because of one little poorly translated word: “earth.”
Read the article to find out how the correct translation of that word changes everything.
This is an honor for me, because Gary’s work on the End Times is one of the most influential on my view.
These guys like beer and theology. fascinating combination.
I start around 9 minutes in. I first talk about my screenwriting career.
Then we talk about how I gave up on “Left Behindism.”
And then I talk about the story of first century Rome vs. Jerusalem in the storyline of my series Chronicles of the Apocalypse.
Spiritual warfare stories. Supernatural worldview, and more!

It’s crazy to try to discuss such a complex book with two completely opposite paradigms.
Since Rob and I are crazy (in different ways), we decided to do just that.
I argue for Revelation being about the first century destruction of Jerusalem, he considers most of it future.
But there are areas of agreement too.
Check it out.
More to come!
Me and Rob Skiba again! The guy is smart, sharp, he’s got a good sense of humor, and he’s a very fair host.
It’s so hard, trying not to fall into the trap of saying that every new podcast interview is “the best one yet.” That dilutes the phrase. It’s a dangerous slippery slope into click bait.
But I have to say this series of discussions truly are the best interviews I’ve had. We go deep into issues and because it’s a series, we cover a lot more ground than I have before.
This interview starts out on the poetry of Bible prophecy. Metaphors, hyperbole, symbols versus “literal.” What about double fulfillment? Are the Last Days in our future or were they in our past as the Last Days of the Old Covenant?
Listen here to the podcast online. You’ll be glad you did.
Part 1 is on the same page as Part 2 if you want to listen to it.
Part 3 is coming next week. We’ll talk about the book of Revelation specifically.
Hint: They are not in our future. But they were crucial to God’s plan in the first century destruction of Jerusalem and the temple.
I was just guest posted at the American Vision website with this article.
Check it out.
This is a FASCINATING discussion. One of my most interesting.
I was on Rob Skiba’s podcast talking about the End Times and the failure of modern Bible Prophecy pundits over and over and over again.
With such a track record of absolute and total failures, maybe it’s not because individuals are wrong in specific interpretations. Maybe its the entire system that is wrong.
Consider something radically different. Consider preterism…
What happens when two heretics discuss opposing views on the End Times? Find out in this first of a multi-part series, which will compare Brian Godawa’s Preterist views versus Rob Skiba’s Futurist views concerning what the Bible calls the “Last Days.” In this broadcast, Brian lays out the foundation for why he no longer believes in the Futurist position, as described in his latest series of books.

I was on this podcast. It was a great interview. One of my best yet.
We started talking about my new novel, “Tyrant: Rise of the Beast”, the first release in my new series “Chronicles of the Apocalypse.”
Then we talk about the new book before diving deep into a broader discussion about biblical prophecy and how to properly understand it in the modern age. Whether or not you believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, if you have an interest in prophecy or are curious to know what the ancient authors meant by the “end times”, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
