I believe that we are living in the most unique times this world has ever known. God has endued us with the responsibility of manning the walls of the Kingdom during the most critical moment in Church history.
At a time when the world is wandering after materialism, avarice, and deception, we are called to be different- separate from the hordes of human "lemmings" who are plunging over the cliff of morality. My hope and my prayer is that we are equal to the responsibility; that Jesus finds faith when He returns to gather His bride unto himself.
I started Alabaster Publishing because I wanted to help the Church find the heart-cry of God in these last days. So many voices cry out to the sons of righteousness today, and the task of remaining unspotted by the waves of unrighteous philosophy and religious whoredom borne of Mystic Babylon is daunting.
My goal, as I see it, is to try to bring some sort of guidance, revelation, education, solace, and sometimes even comic relief to the lives of the Children of God. In the coming months, I intend to offer books and literature that addresses the relevant issues facing society today. I will be including material from other authors who have special insight into these perilous times. There is no particular type or style of literature that exclusively exhausts my goal. My goal is to offer poetry, drama, utilized short stories, novels, self-help, and informative books, prophetic interpretations, tracts and every possible medium I can imagine.
There is much to do; so little time to do it. Hebrews 6:10 says "God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them." I hope each of you attempts to find your place in the Kingdom as well.
