How To Write a Book from Start to Finish


Note: This is Part 2 in a series I’m writing this week on how to finish your writing projects. In this post, I’ll talk about how to write a book (even when you want to quit). Read part 1 here.

How do you write a book? If you’re reading this, you probably know how to start writing a book. In fact, you probably have already started writing at least one and maybe several books. It’s easy to start writing a book; you just get a great idea, write a few lines on paper, and there, you’ve started.

What’s less obvious is how to finish writing a book. That’s what this article is about.

What Gives Me the Right to Talk About How to Write a Book?

That’s a good question, because I’ve definitely read my fair share of blog posts about how to write a book by wannabe authors. Maybe you have, too. It’s easy to talk about how to do something, but it’s a lot harder to actually do it.

What makes me qualified to talk about this?

Beside the fact that I’ve written four books, I’ve done something that makes me even more qualified.

I’ve quit.

Some writers make it look easy. They pound out book after book, year after year. In fact, I know one writer who prides himself in being able to write 10 books in a year.

That’s not me.

I struggle through each one. Every time I write a book, at some point during the process there’s a moment when I want to give up, when I want to quit writing not just that book, but writing any book, ever again. And for each book I’ve written, I’ve quit three others.

Honestly, I’ve never written a book that was easy. If you’re reading this, you probably know how hard it is to write a book until it’s finished, too. I would bet you have a whole desk drawer or folder on your computer littered with the remains of unfinished books.

So how then do you write a book (and finish it)?

Two Tools You Need to Finish Writing Your Book

There are lots of little tips and tricks you learn along the way as a writer, and I’ve compiled a bunch of them at the end of this article. However, I don’t think a list of tips solves the essential question of how write a book until it’s finished.

All the tips in the world won’t help you finish writing if you don’t want to finish, and that’s what happens to most people as they write. They know they should write their book, but the process of writing so demoralizes and humiliates them their desire completely disintegrates.

That’s why I want to give you two tools that will help you keep your desire to write going. If you need further tips to write your book, you can find them at the end of the article. In the meantime, let’s learn how to fix our desire.

Write to Express Yourself (Especially Your Flaws)

We all want to be known. Self-expression is ingrained in all of our DNA, and I think that’s why most of us want to write a book in the first place. There’s no other artistic form that allows you the freedom of self-expression as a book.

However, when you write a book, you don’t just want to write something that expresses who you are. You also want to write a book that’s goodIt makes complete sense, because you want people to read your book after all!

This presents a problem, though, because there are pieces of yourself that aren’t very good. In fact, you probably have things inside of you that you’re pretty desperate to hide. I know I do!

We want to express ourselves, but not all of ourselves. For example, in the 5th grade, I was made fun of for wearing bright red shorts that were way too short. The kids in my class called me a girl, and I became very focused on hiding two things: 1) my skinny white legs, 2) and any emotion whatsoever. I became stoic and cold, and even today, I struggle to fully express myself. It’s amazing I’ve written anything at all!

Write Free

It doesn’t matter whether you write fiction or non-fiction. That piece of yourself you want to keep hidden is going to make your writing really difficult, especially when you’re focused on writing something good.

What do you do then? Stop trying to write something that’s good. Instead, write free. (Share that on Twitter?)

When you write you need that ugly side of yourself. In fact, that side of yourself that you’re trying to keep hidden is actually the secret to your creativity. Not only that, everyone else has an ugly side they’re trying to keep hidden too. And only by getting in touch with yours can you write something universal that touches your readers.

When you try to write something good, when you try to hide that ugly side of yourself, you’re bound to get writer’s block because you’re denying your whole self the right to self-expression.

How do you keep wanting to write your book? Don’t try to write something that’s good. Focus on trying to write something that’s you (that includes the side of you you’re trying so hard to hide).

Writing a Book Hurts. Learn to Enjoy the Pain.

The second step to wanting to finish your book is to learn to enjoy the pain.

Huh? Enjoy the pain? Isn’t the called masochism? 

You already know writing hurts. You probably wouldn’t be reading this if you haven’t found writing really really hard. However, I’ve found that writers are some of the best pain-avoiders in the world. Before the days of social media, writers distracted themselves by abusing alcohol and drugs. Mark Twain’s favorite writing-avoidance-tactic was actually to write letters. Today, Facebook and Twitter are probably the most popular way writers avoid the pain of the blank page.

You can use tools like Self-Control (for Mac) or Freedom (for PC), but these don’t address the underlying issue. How can you make yourself want to endure the pain of writing? Since you can’t write a book without experiencing pain, is it possible to make the pain desirable rather than something to be avoided?

There is, actually. I discovered this amazing exercise in a book called The Tools by Phil Stutz and Barry Michels (affiliate link), two psychologists who have become “shrinks to the stars,” helping some of the most successful writers and producers in Hollywood fix their creative blocks.

Here’s how the exercise works:

Exercise: The Pain Cloud

Whenever you’re struggling to write and want to avoid the pain, follow these three steps:

  1. Imagine the pain as a dark, scary storm cloud in front of you. Visualise what your pain looks like. (Mine usually has some lightning bolts shooting from it!)
  2. Stare the pain-cloud down and shout, “Bring on the pain.” You can’t wait to experience the pain, because with the pain comes creative breakthrough.
  3. Move into the pain-cloud, and as it surrounds you, scream at the pain, “I love pain!”
  4. Suddenly, you break out of the cloud of pain into the sun. As you escape, scream, “Pain sets me free!”

This visualization exercise might sound silly, but if you use it when you’re feeling distracted from your writing, you will not just be able to tolerate the pain of writing, you’ll actually begin to enjoy it. Remember the three sayings:

  1. “Bring on the pain!”
  2. “I love pain!”
  3. “Pain sets me free!”

With practice, you can do this exercise in three seconds. Feel free to use it over and over again as you face your pain.

(And for other awesome exercises like this, check out The Tools.)

How to WANT to Finish Your Book

The hardest part of writing a book is to keep wanting to write it. Many people believe that their desire is outside of their control. That they can’t make themselves want to do anything, let alone write a book. This is a horrible lie.

You can control your desire. You can finish writing your book. You can make yourself want to write it (even if you don’t want to write it right now!).

It starts by focusing on expressing your whole self, especially the sides of yourself you normally want to keep hidden. Next is to learn to desire the pain and to stop trying to avoid it.

It won’t be easy. Anyone trying to tell you writing a book is easy is lying to you. However, if you can do it, it’s one of the most rewarding experiences in life. Good luck!

13 Tips to Write a Book

Need more tips to finish writing your book? Here are 13 tips to tide you over:

  • Got writer’s block? Try this.
  • Find a Cartel. Get to know other writers. Becoming friends with other writers can provide emotional support during those times when you want to quit. And when they tell you they’ve just finished writing their book, it will motivate you all the more to finish yours. To make friends with other writers, search online for writer’s groups in your area, join an online writing community, or take a writing class.
  • Get Scrivener. Microsoft Word is a good word processor for short documents and essays, but it sucks for writing books. Books are just too big and complicated. Instead, get Scrivener.
  • Three Drafts. Writing a book is just the beginning. Next, you need to edit it. It takes (at least) three drafts. Here’s a good resource on how to edit your book until it’s finished.
  • Write fast. Edit slow. Most writer’s process is fast first draft, slow second draft, fast final draft. It’s easier to be creative when you’re writing quickly, but editing is generally slow business. However, some writers like to write a slow first draft, followed by a comparatively fast draft for editing.
  • Don’t Worry About Themes. If you’re writing fiction, don’t worry about what your book “means” until you’re at least halfway through. Meaning will emerge as the characters face conflict.
  • Talk Your Book Out. Some people communicate better through speaking than writing. Try getting a tape recorder and recording yourself speaking, either to yourself or when you speak at an event. Then, transcribe the recording (or get someone to transcribe it for you)
  • Read. Think you know everything about your subject/genre? Think again. Read as many books similar to yours as you can. If you haven’t, your readers will be able to tell.
  • Write Every Day. The more you write, the easier it gets. It’s becomes harder to write when you write irregularly.
  • Outline Your Book. Some writers don’t like them, but I recommend creating an outline of your book, especially if you write non-fiction. It gives you the freedom to jump around in your topic/story and helps you know what to write next when you finish the section/scene you’re working on.
  • Word Count Challenges. Word count challenges work for most people. Try to write 500 words a day, and don’t quit writing until you can write that much. They don’t have to be good, but they do have to be done.
  • Practice In Public. Publish pieces of your book on your blog. This is a great way to stay motivated, get feedback, and practice putting your writing out in public. This is one of the best ways to improve as a writer. Note: Some fiction publishers will reject your book if any of it has been published in any form (this rarely happens in the non-fiction realm). I think these publishers are short-sighted and stupid, but that’s just me. While many publishers are changing their policy on this, if you write fiction, you may want to share with a writing group instead of publishing it online.
  • Hire a proofreader. Or make sure your publisher hires one. There’s nothing worse than righting a book with a ton of typos (see what I did there?).

  1. You’re right about one thing, finishing is the hardest part of writing a book length work. Good suggestions, though, on how to keep butt in seat to get it done.

  2. Sara Beth says:

    I”m working on two manuscripts right now, and I think what happens is after the first draft (first full draft all the way through) then I get super bogged down while I go through and edit. The writing process for me hasn’t been as challenging as of late. What helps me SIGNIFICANTLY is making an outline. Sometimes i write 3 different outlines changing stuff as my book progresses but i always try to keep an outline. Having an outline is incredibly useful for me because it allows me to write the scenes i’m inspired to write first, and then go back to the outline to find out what i should write next so i don’t lose track of my progress. This actually helps relieve me from writer’s block. Sometimes writer’s block occurs because i don’t know what should come next in the story I am working on. When I can go back to the outline of my sketched out ideas, I can see ‘oh this is where my story is supposed to go.’ Or i can change things around, etc. Obviously this is not the only time writer’s block occurs. I have been writing (just personally) for 10 years and as SOON as i started using outlines in my writing, my writing took off and now I am almost ready to submit to agents etc. However, again, the editing process is bogging me down blah!

  3. Joe, your stuff is always so good and I really value it. You are such a help to writers everywhere!

    This was very timely for me. I have written 60K words of a memoir of being made housebound with an illness that most doctors don’t believe exists. I reckon I need to write about 20k more! then cut 40K words somehow (the rubbish bits??) I just wanna quit, and I am facing resistance like you wouldn’t believe, a year after starting this thing.

    Thanks – this has given me fresh energy. I might need to print this out and frame it…

  4. I’ve written four books, too, Joe (novels)! The first two sucked, but the last two I truly believe are good enough to be published. My literary agent left the biz this fall before we starting submitting my novel. I’m debating what’s next….anyhoo, INTERESTING post. I just ordered The Tools. Any guys that give advice to writers that wins them academy awards, I want to learn from them! Thanks.

    Hi Joe,

    It sure editing is a hard task but I edited my first soon to be published memoir for more than the numbers of my 20 digits of my hands and feet combined. It’s about an unrequited love that I had cradled in my crazy mind for more than a decade and I think I will be fulfilled if I will let the world know about my fear-to be discovered.

    Though hard it seems but I enjoyed doing it like I’m becoming a fault-finder to my own work(LOL).

    I’m very excited to be part of the story cartel if it opens.

    Thanks we’ve crossed our paths into writing that I found a wise mentor for a newbie writer like me.

  6. You are stellar, Joe! Thank you!

  7. I’ve been working on the same novel for over two years, and I can’t count how many times I’ve wanted to quit. But the one thing that keeps me going is that I am doing this for a much higher purpose than just what I might feel at the moment.
    I have found that what you say is true: expressing your whole self, good and bad, helps keep you going, and makes your story more real.
    I’m a beginning writer, and I really appreciate the tips you give in your emails!

    “Whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God”

  8. You didn’t mention NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), so I assume you are not familiar with it. Their site is http://nanowrimo.org

    Parcipants get to interact with writers around the world. There are pep talks from professional Authors. They teach to write first, no editing until you are done (there is a reason the first draft is also called the first draft: it is the brainstorming session of writing. No idea is bad at this stage). The folks at Literature and Latte have offered discount coupons for Scrivener to people who confirm they have reached the word count. The free trial period for Scrivener is 30 days, NaNoWriMo is 30 days (every November), Scrivener has made NaNo tools available for Scrivener.

    • Thanks Alan. I’ve been following allowing with NaNoWriMo for over 5 years. The strategies in this post would work very well for someone who’s doing NaNoWriMo. However, even if you do “win,” most people have a lot more work to do to finish a publishable manuscript. Not only is 50,000 words too short to publish, but too few people are ready to do the kind of editing and rewriting it takes to finish a publishable book, unfortunately. NaNoWriMo is great, but it’s not a good enough strategy in and of itself!

  9. I stil don’t get how to write a book

    • I need more details of how to write a book about my family but it is to hard and its just like how to write a book. Anyone can help I appreciate the help

  10. Hi everyone I’m in the third page of my episode, I think i’m gonna write the same story, it’s about my life as a gardener to become a General manager. So please anyone who can help me come forward.

  26. I want to share a message that has been spreading all over the internet that concerns the times we are living in. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a must read message!

    We can see throughout time how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Would it surprise you to know that the Bible foretold of this event? Don’t believe me? This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times…please do not ignore this!

    This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This message also shares why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. This is truly a message from God!

    In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that says we must have the mark to buy or sell. So, it deduces itself to this conclusion.

    These verses could not be referring to something spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (our right-hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. It once again deduces itself to this conclusion.

    Also, how could you determine who truly has a spiritual mark so that they may buy or sell? And, as you will read further in this article, to have the mark of the beast is the same to have the name of the beast, or the number of its name. You will begin to see even more clearly why this mark cannot be something purely spiritual.

    Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960’s.

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).

    Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    THE HIDDEN MEANING BEHIND THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED!

    What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.

    Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.

    The next three I see is in verse 16, “He causes all…” is followed by three contrasting categories of people,

    1 – “both small and great,
    2 – rich and poor,
    3 – free and slave…”.

    Then unto verse 17, it opens with, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has…”, followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,

    1 – “…the mark
    2 – or the name of the beast,
    3 – or the number of his name”.

    Now unto verse 18, we read “Let him who has understanding calculate…”, which is followed by,

    1 – “the number of the beast,
    2 – for it is the number of a man:
    3 – His number is 666”.

    The last three I see is the number “6” being used three times in a row. The reason I’m making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

    Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based off the number.

    We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.

    We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666.

    The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.

    What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13).

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between 666 are:

    66+6=72 and 6+66=72.

    Add both 72’s together and you get 144.

    Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.

    Now if you take:

    8+8+8=24

    8+88=96

    88+8=96

    you get 24+96+96=216.

    Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.

    Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.

    Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72 > 6+66=72 > 18+72+72=162

    2: 144,000 divided by 162=888

    3: 8+8+8=24 > 88+8=96 > 8+88=96 > 24+96+96=216

    4: 144,000 divided by 216=666

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72…

    As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.

    Here is another mathematical confirmation: 144,000 divided by 6, divided by 6, divided by 6 (6,6,6) equals 666.

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).

    “here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for “of human” it is, and the number of it 666″ (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).

    The Greek word “anthr?pos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?

    In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.

    We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn’t have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a “human number”, definition “generically, to include all human individuals”.

    Truly a great division is taking place between good and evil—both spiritually and physically (riots, unrest, politics). If you take the current year 2020 and divide it by the number 666 (known for its satanic implications) you will get the number 30330. This number 30330 happens to be the number used to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Freaky? And one thing is certain, 2020 is truly being divided by Satan. He is the master deceiver and spreader of chaos. Jesus calls him the father of lies.

    So I looked up this number 30330 concerning Joe Biden, and I found this information:

    If you send a text to that number (at that time), you would get a response asking to support Joe’s campaign to take down Donald Trump, with one part in caps saying “CHIP IN >>” pointing to a link to go and donate.

    “CHIP IN”? Obama has used this phrase in the past on his twitter and people believe it is a subliminal message to receive the mark of the beast, that is to say the implantable RFID microCHIP that will go IN our body.

    Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    BARACK OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST:

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    The names of both of Obama’s daughters are Malia and Natasha. If we were to write those names backwards we would get “ailam ahsatan”. Now if we remove the letters that spell “Alah” (Allah being the God of Islam), we get “I am Satan”. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

    These are just a few of many evidences why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. You can see many more in my article on the website above, as well as read about the dreams I’ve had concerning this man. I’m more than convinced that God has shown me that he is without a doubt the Antichrist, and we will see him rise to power in the not so dinstant future.

    Jesus stands alone among the other religions who say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil, and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into our reality?

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Sinai. These laws were not given so we may be justified, rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill; even bringing the law to it’s truest light by stating, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28).

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood.

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched, it must be satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised to life on the third day and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him.

    Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again'” (John 3:5-7).

    Come before the Lord with a contrite spirit, humble yourself, ask Him for His forgiveness, to receive the free gift of His salvation, to receive His Holy Spirit, so that you may be transformed into a new creature, into a child of the living God.

    There is a reason why the words of Jesus have been translated in to over 2000 languages, and nothing comes remotely close (the Quran just over 100), because there is a God in heaven who desires to have a relationship with you, to know Him through His word, as that is how we personally get to know anybody. There is a reason why it is the year 2021, because Jesus came to earth just over 2000 years ago fulfilling major prophecy causing a divide in our timeline.

    Jesus loves you! Seek Him while He may be found! We must repent and turn from practicing sin…for if we are not following Jesus, we are following the devil. There is no neatural ground. We are either living in the lie, or the truth. God bless you!
