UP CLOSE & PERSONAL SERIES (BOOK ONE)
One person endowed with an unusual gift, having seen before hand, the events that would come to pass, holds the key that will change his friend’s destiny.
After a night of horrible memories and seeing his friends meet their eternal demise, Larry
attempts to warn them about the vision he foresaw….
Can he get to them before it’s too late?
Or will his actions trigger a predestined path?
The day I sat in Pastor Warren’s office was the moment I thought everything was brought to understanding. Pastor Warren spoke to me about my vision, and he gave me directions. He read Joel 2:28, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
I heard a multitude of voices when he read that scripture to me. I don’t know if they were angels’ voices or just my imagination. I told you there was nothing extraordinary about me, not in the beginning anyway. One thing about a gift, you don’t choose it; rather it chooses you. The only problem is how you exercise the gift.
Once I awoke, at least it appeared that way, my body was burning. Billows of fire seem to crawl over the vehicle. Once the flames rushed me, I blacked out. I awoke once more, this time I was dragged down a dark, lifeless tunnel of moans. The stench was unbearable. I gagged at the smell of rotting flesh. The cries and yells ripped through my flesh like a razor. I cried and cried. Replies of evil laughter yelled back at me. Fire crawled on my body like an insect. Hideous creatures assaulted me.
After what seemed like an eternity, I appeared in this hospital room. I now stand without a body, my emotions bleed over, my hands shake, and my eyes are saturated with water as I look upon my body. Why am I terrified?
Maybe it’s because of the sounds I heard and what they represented. Maybe it’s because of the place I visited. Maybe, just maybe, it’s because of my next destination.
