I love Victor's writing...Brilliant, Whimsical and Dead on target, always!

Genetically Modified Mindsets

To my friends who await my latest book on the significance of Abraham’s sands of the seashore and stars of the heavens.
Moreover, perhaps GM ‘Mindsets’ might even be an effective echo of GM ‘Prophecies’
Nevertheless, my next book Genetically Modified Prophecies: Whatever Happened to all the Sand and Stars God Promised to Abraham? has a promise of its own! It is finally pledged to go to press by the 31st of this month. And when all is said and done, it is actually about mindset.   In Romans 12:2 in the New Living Translation we have:
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think…"  that is, changing your mindset!
And with that, let me introduce you to Genetically Modified Prophecies The front cover is just to your left. The majority of the back cover—including excerpts from 4 of the 7 endorsements—are copied below:
Whatever happened to the promise?…that is, the one God made to Abraham that his descendants would be innumerable—and what does that have to do with the rest of us today?  As the world we once knew quickly unravels and the prophetic interpretations we once presumed credible crumble before our eyes, it’s time to awaken to the possibility that the big-name visionaries of yesteryear may have zeroed in from the wrong angle.  They told us as much as they saw, but after 1948, 1967, 9-11, and the current global disintegration, we see much more.  Could it be that all those Abrahamic descendants are hiding in plain sight?  Could it be that the Almighty was right after all?  Genetically Modified Prophecies holds the key to understanding this prophetic predicament!
And here are excerpts of a few advance comments by credible researchers of the manuscript:
“Redemption is rooted in the Abrahamic Covenant.  In Genetically Modified Prophecies you will find a whole new universe of ideas concerning how the creator God will reveal the actual genealogy of the redeemed when all is said and done.”
Dr. Robert Stearns, Executive Director, Eagles’ Wings
“Victor’s background in nuclear science, linguistics, Bible translation and extensive exposure to people groups worldwide more than qualifies him for this task.”
Bruce Garbutt, Australian Director, ICEJ
“Using his unique wit and thorough research Victor takes us on a literary journey around the globe with one thought in mind; 'He has put eternity in their hearts'!  A thought provoking work and a joy from cover to cover.”
Rev. Gary Cristofaro, Sr. Pastor, First Assembly of God, Melbourne, FL
“It is evident that much prophecy has come to pass, with even much more about to happen.  Whatever we take from this book, keep your eyes on Abba."
Nick Vujicic, Evangelist, Founder and President of
We pray that the message will be as motivating to you as well.
But we may need some partners. For any meaningful distribution, we know we must reach a maximum contact across 2012. Time is at a premium. We hope to hit a few venues in New South Wales and Queensland early in the new year, and a number more over the summer months in the USA.  But our staff is limited and tracing old tracks from Denver to Dublin or Jerusalem to Johannesburg these days are far too demanding. We’d never make it!
Another option would be help from our readers. I know we have an outreach of avid readers who relish both my style and research. Granted a few might not understand everything. [One high school headmaster jested that he had to read Showdown of the Gods three times before he was sure he got all the goodies hidden between the lines!] but there are more than enough who do get it! 
In some prayerful probing, we reckon that if there are a few dozen outlets out there that could still connect with a clientele who cherished the God-given gift of thinking—maybe we could move a few more cases of GM “seed for the sower”.
Of course, you’ll have to read the book first! Let us know if you can visualize a shop, store, congregation, community or potential outlet for 50 or more books, and we’ll see if we can’t get you an advance copy. They say there may be a bit of  famine of sorts in 2012, so we’re in a mode to plant some soul-gardens first!
So if anyone has any guidance at all for a hitherto unexplored point of distribution for "outside the box" yet totally Bible oriented thinking, get back to us.
So what else can I say?  Maybe I can give you the very last line in GM Prophecies. It’s in Georgianese English (USA Georgia not USSR):                                           “Taint nuthin’ what ya thought!”

Blessings and Shalom,
