So, you paid retail for that book that lays out the details for the End Times?
Really?! Because only suckers pay retail.
I will tell you the best way to get discounted prophecy books, and you don’t even have to buy my DVD or attend one of my seminars.
The secret THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW is:
Wait a year; and then when the prediction doesn’t come true, you can pick the books up, pennies on the dollar.You’ll find them in the discount rack in your Christian bookstore, or an online seller will suddenly announce a great SALE!
I bring this up, since CBD just sent me this announcement for the book that changed the whole way we think about the Second Coming, the World, and Everything – now knocked down to a mere $4.99:
Now: if a Prophecy Expert publishes one book, and it becomes a hit, he will follow it up: multiple sequels, videos, cds. So, while I’m at it, let’s see: Yes, indeed, it looks like all the Blood Moon andShemitah merchandise is on sale!
I guess that Four Blood Moon‘s subtitle, a very vague promise that “something is about to change,” just didn’t hold water: it’s about as unspecific as “God is telling me that someone in this congregation has back troubles!” or “Within 72 hours you will see a woman wearing a hat and then you will realize that I am God’s prophet!” That is, not a whole lot of help for planning ahead.
In this case, I haven’t run across a Blood Moon Lunchboxes on sale; there are Blood Moon T-Shirts, although still at full price (a nice all-cotton tee still retains its value):
The dynamic is the same, year after year: today’s outlandish prediction, becomes tomorrow’s prophecy movement, becomes the day after tomorrow’s Pet Rock, Hula Hoop, Beanie Baby, Pog.
They are already selling the predictions for late-2016, 2017, 2018, but take my advice: I wouldn’t pay retail for them.
