We do not wrestle with flesh and blood, but with powers and principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places. As The Body of Christ mobilizes, so the nations of the world have come forth to do battle. In this book and series, a single eye will be the light to capture these moments through photograph and word. Discover the truths of spiritual warfare, as the outcome proves who wins: good or evil.
Set in the author’s native state, North Carolina, the events pertain to notable areas, familiar towns and cities, and those places ready for the appearing of Our Savior. He will come down and redeem, but not before many will be lost, and few will be saved. Drawn from the Biblical verse of Revelation 12:17, which says, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ,” this short story portrays a heavenly journey at its end, and an earthly walk at its beginning.
From the theological themes that introduced doctrinal works to the world, such as Matthew Pope’s first book, “In Doctrine, Uncorrupt,” followed by his first photographic compilation in “Assembled With One Accord,” to “Of Yesterday” and “In The Apostles’ Doctrine, one historical and one radio-centered, now is joined with this work of Christian fiction the fifth book overall published. The first itself of many in the War with The Remnant series, “Translated Literature” brings several interests, such as warfare, spirituality, and historical elements. Based on Colossians 1:13, our Scripture has been properly converted to our language, so as to understand The Spirit of God: “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
The second entry for the War with The Remnant Series, Every Direction continues the narrative of the cosmic battle of good versus evil. Stemming from Revelation 12:17, the seed of Mary is warred against by the wiles of Satan, and this has been passed on to The Holy Church. As The Body of Christ, we are bound to always spar with the spiritual degrees of the Devil’s plots and henchmen. Taken from Ezekiel 10:11, Every Direction’s title is inspired by this Biblical verse, which reads, “When they went, they went in their four directions: they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went” (ASV). Set in North Carolina, this book mentions places familiar by name and detail, those intrinsic to the author’s familiarity. As the tides of God’s army combats that of the forces of Hell, who will arise as winner? Whose Kingdom will prevail? The train of the Lord departs now. Where will its next stop be?
The seventh book by Author and Writer Matthew Pope, this recent work joins an ever-expanding bibliography of unapologetic, spiritual writings and Catholic influenced material, all firmly planted in The Gospel of Jesus Christ. In this fictional, yet non-fictional reading of Biblical elements, this latest publication does what his earlier projects have done all along: demanded that Christ and His glory be given a chance and chapter.
