Aberration

Chapter One

 

 

     He stood at the highest point of the most remote lake in North America; Lake Mead. And he raised his arms high in the air and he said with a slow, controlled, and confident voice, “Let it rain.”

     Suddenly, dark thick clouds came out of nowhere with hurricane-like winds, powerful lightning, and deafening thunder. Then the sky began to swell and let loose massive amounts of rain, filling the almost dry lake to full capacity.

     The storm came out of nowhere for no apparent reason. Not even weather forecasts had any indication that a storm would cut across the desert, let alone be stationary over one lake for hours at one time. What was going on? And how could this be? Something strange and out of the ordinary was happening, but not as strange as what was coming.

 

     The people of Las Vegas were stunned and amazed at the fact that they’re once almost dried up only source of water had now been filled to capacity with no apparent reason. Who or what was responsible?

 

     As soon as the lake became full of water, the man lowered his arms and began to say, “Die away storm and cease to rain any longer.” Immediately the wind calmed, the rain stopped falling, and the weather became clear again. Then the man turned a bright glow, almost a blinding light. And as quickly as he appeared, he was gone without a trace of evidence. Except for the fact that now the lake was full of water. Data started pouring in from computers around the globe. Scientists began showing up at the lake bewildered and scratching their heads at the now filled to capacity reservoir. Off in the distance a helicopter lands and drops off a man near Hoover Dam.

 

     “I have never seen anything like it!” said one scientist as he stared at the waves of the reservoir with a disbelief look on his face.

 

     “Nor I!” another man standing next to him in a police uniform began to say with a dropped jaw. “And who are you and what are you doing here sir? This is now a restricted area until we can find out what is going on here.”

     “Crenshaw!”

     “Well, Mr. Crenshaw you have to get off this lake~”

     And while the police officer was still speaking the man exclaimed with a lowering voice as he was still amazed at the filled lake. “Dr. Crenshaw, Dr. Michael Crenshaw U.S. Science Observatory. How did, how did this lake…” overwhelmed, the doctor could not finish his sentence.

     The police officer became excited, moving the man along another direction with his hand on his shoulder as helicopters began to swarm to the area. “You’re the Dr. Crenshaw who is supposed to head the investigation of this anomaly?”

     With a cocked head and a bewildering look in his eyes, he looked at the officer and said, “Yes, yes I am.”

     “Great!” holding out his hand, “I’m Officer Stevens, head of security, come with me sir. We have everything setup this way!” as the officer took the doctor’s hand with a serious look on his face he said, “Finally, maybe someone can make sense out of this mess!”

     The two men got in a police jeep and proceeded to the command center setup at the lake.

     “What happened here?” Dr. Crenshaw tried to look straight ahead, as his head bobbed up and down, and back and forth from the rough ride over the terrain.

     “Well, Doctor this is a big lake, but two eye witnesses say a man appeared out of nowhere, raised his arms, and then a great powerful storm came.”

     “Great… powerful… storm! I would say that’s an understatement considering we have never seen anything like this before, and our instruments have measured some out-of-this-world readings… And what does a man have to do with it?”

     “That’s what they said sir, He appeared out of nowhere!”

     “Well, Mr. Stevens, no one else gets in or out of this lake until we can find out what caused all of this. And find that man.”

     “We are on it sir!”

 

     A bright light shoots across the African night sky and is visible for miles away. Even as bright as the light was, still, no noise was heard, or any signs of a crash, like a meteor falling from the sky. At that moment, a loud rumbling boom cracks the night sky with several flashing lights.

     “What is going on here?” one man whispered. And before he could get it completely out of his mouth, it began to rain ferociously. There were not many people awake in the middle of the night. But the locals who were awake became awe struck. It rained until the next day, and never in their life had the people seen so much rain. Just then, the earth began to rumble and quake; the ground began to break up. All of a sudden, large fully grown trees started emerging from the ground out of nowhere. At first the people began to panic, running in sure terror as the massive trees bellowed from the ground. And then as quickly as it began the trees stopped growing.

     “How can this be?” a woman says holding on to her child with one hand and clenches her chest with the other. “What took years to destroy by man has now grown from the earth in minutes, only God is able.”

     “Never in my life have I seen such a gradual as this. What on earth is going on here?” a local scientist says in a small village of Nigeria studying climate change. He drops all of his notes and instruments as the tall trees swayed over the once barren land.

 

     Back in America, NASA and the NSA is scrambling a team to west central Africa to investigate the second anomaly that has taken place in the last 24 hours on earth. Military leaders and Joint Chiefs of Staff are looking over data and contemplating their next move.

     “Sir you gotta’ take a look at this! Satellite images have just beamed back a newly formed forest across the barren plains of Africa. And they have been getting rain for the last two days in the most drought stricken regions.”

     “Get me the president on the phone. And find out where our top scientists are and what they are working on? Tell ‘em whatever it is, drop it, this has become top priority.”

 

     Back in Las Vegas, people began talking about the strange occurrences of the storm and Lake Mead rising to capacity in a matter of days. What caused it and why? Not that anyone should be complaining. The reservoir was filled to capacity and that meant people had plenty of fresh water to drink. But something puzzled the scientist, they had been trying to control the weather for decades with not much success. So how could a stationary storm come out of nowhere and dump enough rain to fill an entire lake, and then disappear as fast as it came?

     Military leaders began deliberating on how they were going to keep this a secret from the general public.

 

     Meanwhile, at area 51, General Davis blurted, “How are we going to protect the American people from this?”

     “Don’t you mean keep this a secret General, and by ‘this’ you mean an unexplainable event?” Dr. Young turned his chair around slowly and began to speak again, “This strange event did not happen in Area 51 General under the night sky. And it can’t be locked away in some hanger either.” He stands up and walks towards the window, “This, general, is much bigger than saucers flying through the sky from outer space. Just how are you going to hide an entire lake filling up with water, and a massive forest sprouting from the ground instantly, that should have taken decades to grow, from the American people or any people for that matter? No, general, this is beyond keeping a secret.” As he looks out of the window at the swollen lake the doctor utters his last words, “Whatever this is, the people, they already know.”

Aberration is Coming!

It has begun, and a new series is just about to get underway in production starting in August. What?

I’m talking about a new thrilling Sci-Fi Inspirational book called Aberration written by myself that will soon be entering the production stage of publishing over at Tate Publishing. This is an exciting time, and I would like to keep each and every one of you updated as to how everything is going during each step.

A little back story:

Anthony Sullivan has returned home from the military and has begun his new civilian life that he is not adjusting very well too. He is thrown into one life changing situation after another, due mostly to his own choices. He can’t seem to find his way in the trouble world he has created for himself, until he finds a relationship with God through his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It is through this relationship that he eventually becomes endowed with supernatural gifts that propels him into dimensions that makes him a powerful leader of Gods people. And then leading them into the dominion God had for them in the beginning.

His arch enemy, General Davis, is one who will do anything to stop Anthony from achieving his goals, but ultimately a surprising twist in the story stops him in his tracks. The first book is Anthony’s supernatural state and what he accomplishes with his rival Mr. Davis, and uncovers some dramatic life changing events.

I will be posting short stories on the beginnings of Aberration giving you a sense of the beginnings and how it all unfolds. But for the dramatic ending….you will have to crack open the book, possibly a series, no definitely a series. 

Stay tuned…and get ready for a change!   Aberration

God bless!

By the way, I will also be re-posting Aberration series blogs that I had linked to a previous website I have since deleted.

Thank you and I do hope you enjoy!

The Sun is Setting

It’s inevitable, what goes up must come down. It is the law of physics, and it is the visible revelation of God that says anything that will be built, will also be destroyed.

It happens every day and it happens in the blink of an eye. We search for things on a regular basis. Considering the amount of people in the world, we may search every second for something in our life.

We may search for our car keys or even a pen to write with. We may search for a pot to cook in or even a thought in order to find out what we are going to cook. Thoughts run through our mind every second chasing after each other one after another. The point is one thought exists until another thought takes its place.

It’s inevitable, even our own thoughts are built and destroyed in mere seconds. The sun rises for a new day with a promise to lay another solid foundation in order to build something great. But what are we building? Do we know if we are even building anymore? Or are we entering the final stages of destruction, self-destruction even?

The time has come when our worst fears have caught up to our reality. Our nation is losing control of dominance and our own pride is slowly choking us to our ultimate death. Each day as the sun rises shows another stain revealed to the world that our time is swiftly coming to an end. The sun is setting on this nation and the entire world. And the control that we thought we had will soon be stripped away like a virgin on her wedding night.

What makes us think that we can play the “I can do whatever I want card” and everything is going to work out fine? A little explosion here and a little devastation there along with a few unexplainable murders over yonder. Our nation’s corrupt underworld is slowly being exposed with every sunrise. Where has the God gone that the very constitution of this nation was founded on years ago? Now we pick apart that same constitution and use it against ourselves to justify our selfish ways.

Forget about God! Go after your constitutional rights and stand for what you believe in, but do not be sad on the day of your sunset; the day of your destruction.  “I can’t stand Christians talking about their god and that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and he is coming back to judge the world. Repent this repent that…”

“Tell me about it. They are always talking about the bible says this or the bible says that, you know there is two things that I just don’t talk about and that’s religion and politics. As far as I’m concerned they can have it all, those politicians don’t know what in the hell their talking about and I don’t think the bible thumpers do either.”

Chances are you have sat in on a conversation like the one above before or have overheard one at least once or twice in your lifetime. But then a D.A. is murdered in his own property, kids are gunned down in frequency sometime at their own school and at the hands of another kid, a bomb goes off in your neighborhood and not some third world country. The sun is setting on our nation, and the sun is setting on our world. We are dying and the time has come for our eyes to be opened to see our own destruction.

I am not a religious person who looks to religion to save me. Who thinks just because I believe in something that I will be saved or be immune from stupid people doing stupid things in life. Shall my temple bail me out of the hole I have dug since I can remember? Or will my sacrifice of no meat for the day or week be sufficient enough to save me from the otherwise dirty deeds I have done on other days, and possibly will continue to day on the days coming after? No, I don’t know what will happen next. And no, I do not have religion to save me nor do I want it. But what I do want and have and would like to keep for as long as I have breath on this earth and beyond, is a relationship.

I’m tired of hearing verse after verse of the bible being quoted, regurgitated, and manipulated to be interpreted the way that someone thinks it should say instead of what it actually says. Where is your power in the word that you speak? Where does it come from and do you believe what you actually read? How are you applying it to your life and does your life reflect what you are reading? Are we just going through the motions buying time until the day the sun is completely gone?

The days get closer and closer together before the next unexplained “This should have never happened” phenomenon takes place in the great powerful nation of the united people. But how “united” are we? Can we stand the test of time? Where actually is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? And if he is there, when will he come to our aide and keep all of this disaster from happening?

Do we dare keep going the direction we are going to really find out the answers that we may or may not want to know? Those questions or answers will show up whether we want them or not or even like them or not. Why? Because we choose the direction we take, and we must own up to what we think is right or wrong. Even if it is what we believe is right or wrong in our own eyes.

The sun is going down. Whether you believe it or not or even like it or not, the sun is going down on mankind. Our time is getting shorter and shorter on this earth, and I can’t say when because I am not intelligent enough to predict the end of time on this side. But what I do know is that I have asked for the wisdom and discernment to tell one season from the next. And the season the world is entering in does not look promising for those wanting to play the “I can do whatever it is I want card”.

I’m searching for answers. I’m searching looking for clues as to how did I get where I am today, and how is it going to affect where I am going tomorrow? I’m not searching in some far off outer space constellation or planet, or mathematical equation. I’m not even searching for the answers in some school text book. I’m searching for the answers within myself, it’s because within myself will I find all of the answers I have ever been looking for…Did Jesus create the world?

We are all soon going to find out the answer to that question!
