The Trigger

The Trigger
A Novel on the Revelation
by Hon Hoh

The Trigger is a novel following three men and their role in reaching the last unreached people group on the earth and ushering in the Second Coming of Christ.  In this fast paced book we can imagine some of what the demonic world may look like and how it operates, as well as a possible glimpse of the heavenly realms activities and the duties of angels like archangels Michael and Gabriel.  We experience the bowls of wrath and the sounding of the trumpets.

I really enjoyed The Trigger.  I love a good novel and one based on the end times is fascinating to me.  I at this point do not have a set view on when Christians will be raptured, whether it will be pre-tribulations, mid-tribulation, or post-tribulation.  I do know that no one knows the day or the hour and that Jesus Christ is coming back again!  I feel like with the recent events related to Harold Camping, that I must mention that I feel great sadness for his followers and believers and even for Mr. Camping himself, he is deceived.  And maybe because of that I was a little sensitive to the book and the situations in toward the end where the three men seem to know what the trigger will be and when the end will come.  I did enjoy The Trigger very much it is a great novel and a fun read for the imagination.


I was provided a free copy of this book for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.

21 Days of Prayer for Sons

I am joining another challenge :)  I am finding these challenges very inspiring.  It is great to be part of a community of believers online that I would not have otherwise.

This challenge is 21 Days of Prayer for Sons.  I am excited for this.  From what I have seen so far it is praying scripture specifically for our boys.  I love the practice of praying scripture, stating back to God what His Word says is so powerful.  To find out more go to Prayer Warriors.  You can also find them on facebook.

This challenge begins June 8th.

Review: False Witness

False Witness
by Randy Singer

False Witness is a legal thriller.  It follows Clark Shealy, bail bondsman, on a bounty hunt with the most valuable asset he could ever imagine- his wife's life.  She is being held ransom for a man who has been in hiding from the Chinese mafia.

False Witness is an engrossing read, there are many twists and turns for the Shealys and the other characters in the story.  It keeps the reader wondering what will happen next and on the edge of their seats.  I really enjoyed Mr. Singer's style of writing and the fact it was not a  predictable storyline, right up to the end. I give a hearty recommendation for this book.

False Witness also brings out a serious issue in our modern times, the plight of the Dalits in India.  The Dalit Freedom Network is working hard to bring justice to these precious people and their plight.  Mr. Singer is sending every dollar from royalties from False Witness to the Dalit Freedom Network.  False Witness points to how helpful education is for the Dalits and what we can do to help. 

Randy Singer is a trial lawyer, as well as author, I think that fact gives enriching details and authenticity to the story.  Mr. Singer has authored another book, Directed Verdict,that I plan on looking into in the near future.

Siesta Scripture Memory Team Verse #9

Psalm 127:3-5 NKJV~

 3 Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD,
         The fruit of the womb is a reward.
 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
         So are the children of one’s youth.
 5 Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
         They shall not be ashamed,
         But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
