This is it! The sign that the Bible lays out explicitely about when Jesus is going to return! Mike Erre not only wrote a book but some publisher (a respected one at that!) actually published it. Now, I want you to know that I pride myself on being somewhat of a Revelation scholar. I have taught that book more times than any throughout the entire 66 books of scripture. I can tell you for certain that the following sections of Revelation clearly point to THIS sign (the publishing of Jesus of Suburbia) as a definitive sign of the end times:
“and out of his mouth came a sharp, two-edged sword and his face was like the sun shining in its strength” (1:16) – Have you ever seen Mike? His mouth could hold a couple of swords PLUS the scabards! His face, well, it only shines when he sweats…which is most of the time!
“do not be afraid” (1:17) I must admit, the first time I met Mike, standing next to him, I was afraid! The guy is a behomoth!
“and I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, “take it and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey” (10:9). Now, Mike is a big man…saying he likes to eat is like betting the farm on the fact that K-Fed and Brittany wouldn’t make it to 3 years. Come on! Mike has never met a scroll, a pizza, a burger or whatever that he wouldn’t eat!
I don’t want to belabor this point…but I’ve looked through Revelation again and see too many “coincidences”…too many sure-fire signs of the publishing of Mike’s book as fulfillment of prophesy – could it be he is the “beast from the sea”? Hints – big man, lives near the ocean, big man! Some may even say that his book is one of the “bowls of wrath” (although I must admit, I haven’t read it yet).
Seriously, my SIX copies just arrived today from Amazon (Order it here!)and I am anxiously awaiting the moments that are ticking away until I open the first page and start the Erre feast. Tell you the truth, I never thought Mike would ever put things in writing. I knew he was gutsy but now he really has to take responsibility for what he says!
Here’s to you Mikey! I love ya! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into your book tonight. The other copies are going to some of the members of our community. I figure that they need a bit of heresy every so often…it keeps them honest!
By the way, he DIDN’T have the publisher print his picture on the cover of the book…in case you want to know what he looks like, here are a couple of pics!
