Tell us a little about yourself. was born a Christian in Iraq. He immigrated to the US thirty years ago when he was a teenager. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Michigan in 1985. After he was born again, the Holy Spirit guided him in researching the book of Revelation and inspired him to write this End-times novel. His Bible-based novel reveals how to break down Satan's game plan to confuse and intimidate us as we live on Earth. He lives with his wife and son in Northern California.
What was your motivation behind this project? I loved the Lord ever since I was a child and always wanted to know more about Him and the Bible. When I finally understood what following Jesus meant, I became a born again Christian in the last few years and had a desire to serve the Lord. Right after I became a born again Christian, my three year old son was diagnosed with Autism. My son's illness created anger in me and instead of directing my anger towards God, like some people do; I directed my righteous anger towards Satan (Ephesians 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not). That's when I started writing this book, "Get Behind Me Satan". I know that the Lord can say the word anytime and reverse my son's condition. Actually, He already said the word, it just takes some time for it to be fulfilled. His will be done, not mine. I love my son and wouldn't trade him for anything, and I would present him as a sacrifice if the Lord asks (Abraham). After I started writing the novel, the devil I thought I knew, took off the gloves and started hammering me and my family down even more. He should have killed me if he wanted to stop me. Fortunately, he has no final say in the matter. He is a defeated foe. It took me two long, and unpleasantly strange years of research and writing to finish the book. I have a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering (1985) and wasn't sure if I was qualified to write a novel, but His words "I will be with you" echoed in my mind. I was able to finish the book in Christ who strengthened me. I wrote the book to glorify the Lord Jesus and I am honored that He chose me to do this work.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Satan caused our original parents to be booted out of the Garden of Eden and played a big part in nailing our Master to the cross. I will make it my ministry to write End time Bible-based novels that expose Satan the liar and reveal how to break down his game plan to confuse and intimidate us as we live on Earth. The novel offers encouragement to Christians to hold on until our tour of duty ends and He calls us home. And I pray ( and ask you to pray for my family) that the Holy Spirit continues to protect me from the evil one, give me strength, and bless me with His spiritual gifts.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My love to Lord increased and He showed me that He loved me even more. The project made my faith as strong as a house built on a rock.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The Bible and the inspirations from the Holy Spirit were my two companions during the time the book was being developed.
