What if it's all true?


 Left Behind Movie on Prime


Many years ago I read this great book series by LaHaye/Jenkins that changed the way I saw the world.  Of course, these were fiction books, but they brought the book of Revelation to life and I'll be honest.  I actually left messages all around my house that if I suddenly disappeared with half the world, that this is what happened and how you could be saved during those seven years of Tribulation.  I think today more than ever, this needs to be talked about.  We finally have the technology to bring many things to life that we didn't have back then.  Whereas some people may see this as doom and gloom, I see it as a glorious prophesy that was written thousands of years ago coming true.  Whether you watch the movie for the entertainment value, or read the books, I hope it touches your heart they way it did mine.






Like I said, this is a fictional portrayal of the end days, but what it did for me was make me want to study the book of Revelation and Daniel, and it seriously changed my life.  I was struggling in my belief as a Christian in those days, and to this day I feel like I was pulled toward these books to change my mind.  I was studying metaphysics, Wicca, and things that were not the life God wanted for me and it brought my mindset back around to where it needed to be.  My challenge to you today, not matter what your religious affiliation or even if you have none, is to read the book, or watch the movie, and maybe, just maybe it will make you see things differently.

Our world is in such chaos right now, that I believe it's a wake up call from God to get your life in order.  That being said, I don't judge others that have a different believe system from me.  I've always left the judging to God, so I will love you no matter what you believe, or where you are at in your spiritual journey.  As a favor to me, I hope you'll at least give the book or the movie a chance, as I've given other books and religions a chance over the years.  Knowledge is a powerful thing either way.  This spoke to my heart today and I felt I needed to share.

Excerpt

You made the rule, Bella, yet you are the first to break it. That’s not real fair, don’t you think?” I don’t even know how to answer, even if my voice is able to work right now.
Running his hand through his hair in frustration. “How am I supposed to ignore you when you are looking at me like that?” I know he’s trying to provoke me, and I can’t do this. I need to stay strong.
“I think we are finished here.” I stand from my seat and immediately realize that was a stupid move.
“I get to say when we’re finished.” Tate stands and is not more than a foot from me, speaking in a deep sensual voice. “Why did you ask me to flirt with you, Bella, tell me what’s going on inside that beautiful head of yours.” His hand comes up and takes my face in it, slowly tilting my face to look at him, stroking my cheek with his thumb.
“Why did you try to tell me how big your cock is?” I blurt out, losing all rational thought with him touching me so sensually.
“Because I need you to know what you’re getting yourself into. You are confusing me, Bella. I don’t know what you’re trying to say. What do you want me to be to you, tell me? Am I your boss, a friend, or the man who you want more from? You can’t send me these mixed signals and expect me to say nothing. I’ve spent years doing that, and I’m not sure how much longer I can do it.”
I’m panicking, and I know I need to say it’s all a misunderstanding, that all I see is the big brother he has always been, but I can’t bring myself to do it.
I can’t lie.
“I want more,” I whisper. My heart is racing at the way his eyes are on fire. I’ve never seen him look so hot.
“I’ve always wanted more, but we can’t because…” I try to say it, but my words are swallowed by Tate’s mouth taking mine.
His lips demand attention from me, the kind that you can’t ignore and is all consuming. I know this can’t happen so I need to take what I can before I have to walk away. Both his big hands are on my face and one sliding around the back of my neck, pulling me tighter as our mouths thrash together and suck the air from each other’s lungs. My body now flush against his, I can’t stop my hands from grabbing hold of his white coat like I’m never letting go. I’ve dreamed of this moment for so long, I can’t believe it’s happening. All my doctor fantasies are rising to the surface, trying to beg for more. To be honest, they’re only Doctor Tate fantasies, there’s never been anyone else.

Tate starts to slow his kiss, and a soft sigh slips from my lips as he pulls away.
“Bella,” he groans. “Fuck, Bella, we...”
“We can’t do this, Tate.” I pull back quickly and stumble over the chair behind me. Tate grabs me around my waist to steady me.
“Breathe, Bella. It’s okay.” He tries to bring me closer again. I reach to his chest and push him back as I step backwards
My panic has my body now firing on full alert.
“Damn you, Tate, why did you do that,” I whisper angrily. “You’re my boss and my brother’s best friend, for god’s sake. Shit, I need to leave.” As I start to head to the door, Tate is in front of me before I can even get close.
“Like hell you’re leaving just yet. We need to talk about what just happened. What’s been happening for years,” he growls.
“Nothing, nothing’s been happening, and nothing will continue to happen.” I stand there getting angry that I can’t run.
“Bullshit! You can’t tell me you just felt nothing. You wanted that as much as I did. Have the guts to be honest.” He stands there with his fists clenched, when I can tell all he wants to do is reach for me.
“I was just playing the game, you know, like you do with all the other doctors and nurses in this hospital. Isn’t that what you enjoy? Tasting every meal in the smorgasbord?” I can’t believe I just said something so hurtful in my panicked state of trying to hide my emotions.
Tate just stares at me and steps to the side, opening the door.
“If that’s what you believe then I suggest you leave. See you on the ward tomorrow, Doctor Garrett. Message received, loud and clear.” He walks past me with his shoulders a little drooped.
“Tate, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean…” Before I can finish, he’s already walking away.
“Please close the door on your way out, Doctor Garrett.” He then continues to walk into the bathroom in his office and shuts the door.

Excerpt

“Dance with me, rain cloud.”
“Don’t call me that,” she mutters.
“I’ll call you what I want.”
She shakes her head but keeps it down, her eyes glued to the paint on the tray.
“Dance with me,” I say again, my tone more commanding this time.
When she doesn’t move, I snake my hand around her waist and pull her off the scaffolding. I expect her to fight, but she doesn’t. She lets me pull her to her feet, and once I have her in front of me, she stares at me with an emotionless stare. It’s my favorite expression of hers.
“You’re mad at me,” I say, twisting her hips in my hand. Her body brushes against mine, and I realize how dangerous this is if I want to keep things the way they should be between us.
No response. Her body moves easily in my hands but only because she’s letting me.
She’s driving me crazy on purpose. With her big eyes trained on the wall behind me and those pouty lips pursed in annoyance, my patience wears thin.
I can’t go another fucking second denying this thing between us.
Digging my hands into her hair, I pull her close and whisper, my mouth only inches away from her ear, like a secret. “You’re mad that I kissed her because you want me to kiss you.”
