A great leader really exerts very little control. He or she puts down bold and clear vision, then people buy into this vision. As I write my current book, I am following almost daily two real people with extreme visions – both are projected as characters in the story. Both are real.No kidding.
Now see if you can identity the real-life woman that inspired the singer in this Excerpt from “Healings of the Heart”
The story is set in the year 2032. The American President at that time is a sociopath(1). Of the Senate leaders, one has senile dementia and involved in illegal actions, another is mentally unbalanced. Neither the Senate or House is willing to hold the President accountable for his actions.The southern border is open and terrorists are taking advantage of that. The IRS has overstepped its power and no one has stopped them, the government is mandating an educational system loaded with propaganda. The government is exercising surveillance without regard to any laws. There are wars in the Middle East that threaten America and there is no intelligent foreign policy. Congress is ignoring their Constitutional mandate to impeach and put the President on trial as the President continues to play golf, vacations, gives fund-raising speeches, lies and is lost to any reality.
Inside of this context steps a lonely young man hiking in the wilderness. It’s not just a physical wilderness, but also an emotional and spiritual wilderness. His church (with a little “c”), as most churches, has yet to pick up arms in a battle that defines if America can even continue to exist. There, deep in the wilderness, the young man meets Church. This Church will change his life forever, but could cost him his life.
The lion has roared again.

Here are some excerpts from the second volume of the”Breaking Light” novel series by Carl. This second book of the series is not shipping yet, but continues in development with work often starting early the morning. Enjoy these excerpts Thanks to everyone who has helped me on this. Writing this story has been more fun than any book I’ve done. These excerpts have not passed the final edit.
In 1776 a restlessness was stirring in the American colonies. Fueled by increasing taxes, the colonies felt helpless against their mother country. In addition, as a result of the Great Awakening of 1720- 1745, People were tired of a dying religious institution and king telling them what to believe and how to worship. By 1960 they were getting more than angry at their relationship with England. The Revolutionary War began in 1775. In 1776, it was Thomas Paine who used a press to print a series of articles called Common Sense that rallied the colonies of American to throw off their yoke of slavery and be free:
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.”
From The Crisis, by Thomas Paine
Just as Luther did more than two centuries earlier, Paine’s publishing created a “swarm“ that rallied the demoralized American colonies and led to a free nation.
Today, again, America is restless. Fueled by high taxes that go to illegal aliens, immorality, greedy lawlessness, the absence of leadership, a broken Bill of Rights, and a failing church, a swarm arises again today that is united by the Internet and what’s left of a broken social media, and instead using the Internet to unite and build a new community of Jesus people that love, heal, believe, and lead.
We see crazy politics going on. We don’t see the White Knight. Or is there one? God is at work in all of this. If you don’t see it, ask God to show it to you, because He wants you to see it and your part in it. The greatest problem Jesus had with his disciples was their unbelief and lack of faith (Matt. 17:14-21)
Believe, pray, and then act!

As America finds itself hurtling toward a major election in 2032, the country finds itself trapped in divisions, multiple demonic forces, and corruption. No white knight has emerged to bring unity in the election of the next President. Out of this rubble a small church deep in the Cascade wilderness of the The American Northwest leads the nation and plays a major role in destroying a network of dark forces to move a strong Christian leader to the new Presidency almost overnight. This first book of this Breaking Light series, Breaking Light: Birth of a Hero, ends in November of 2032, as Mark Pearson celebrates with this wilderness church and others the win of the country’s Presidency.
This wilderness church, Sunodia, uses an online network of secure computers with church leaders across the world, called The Phoenix, to do most of their communications ministry. This Phoenix name refers both to their small core group as well as their larger electronic network of seriously committed churches. This network is calling the nation to repentance and the transformation of America.

Healing of the Hearts
In the second book of the Breaking Light series, Healing of the Hearts (not out yet), the new President is aware there is much wounding and a deep need for healing and reconciliation, even within the church. Mark Pearson, as the new President, has a vision to lead the nation to this healing and to an awakening by mobilizing the church, in unity, to take the lead.
Mark is saying in a pre-inaugural speech to Christian leaders:
‘I want to see a significant work of God in the restoring of America.’
“I want to see healing, reconciliation, and a bold work of the Holy Spirit in this nation. I believe it can happen.”
Soon you see a flashback from 2033 to 2014: a wounded soldier is brought back from the Middle East and is at Walter Reed Hospital. He is on life support and critical. From his bed, the soldier stares at the ceiling and has no voluntary movement. Paralyzed. The soldier’s father, a billionaire businessman, offers to pay a famous and wealthy Christian singer whatever she asks if she can bring his son out of wherever this is – and they don’t know what it is, yet. The businessman only pays if she is successful, but he believes God can use her for the healing. Down the hall from the soldier is a second soldier with his face blown away by an IED and now blind and angry. The singer realizes the blind and angry soldier holds the key she needs for the healing of the soldier on Life Support. The singer will need more than her angelic voice and prodigious beauty to see it happen.
In some posts here soon, you will see each of the key characters in the book are created from people who have inspired me deeply: The President, the singer. a very famous doctor, a German theologian, and more. Every one exists or existed in real life. The soldier on life support and paralyzed? That’s me. In 1989 I was suddenly paralyzed from the shoulders down and told by the doctors I would never walk again. I walk today by God’s grace.

I love the part in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: Two Towers where Gandalf marches into the castle where King Theoden lives as a destroyed gelding of his former self, bound by his demons. With a few rhema words spoken in authority, the King is released and transformed before your eyes. Theoden is really still the gelding, however. He is still bound. He’s not the stallion yet.
Even as Theoden celebrates his healing, we see the dark army marching to Rohan. The army has a single purpose: to decimate the world of men. Villages are burned, women and kids are slaughtered. With each day, they are closer to Rohan.
Aragorn: There is a war going on.
King Theoden: I will not risk open war.
Aragorn: Open war is upon you, whether you risk it or not.
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Tolkien
What does this say about the Church? To quote John Eldredge, “Things are not what they seem. This is a world at war. Each of us has a crucial role to play”.
“Friends, we are now in the midst of an epic battle, a brutal and vicious war against an Enemy who knows his time is short. Open war is upon you, whether you would risk it or not”
John Eldredge, Waking the Dead
It is important to realize, however, that this is a battle of the heart, an affair of the heart. Our hearts must come to a place of enlightenment where we can see in the Spirit.
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.”
Eph 1:18 NASU
