Faith Defying Logic

In the aging coliseum

of Vladimiria, Count Vladimir sits in his royal balcony overlooking the entire stadium. The vampire-skulled Count sits on his throne musing with Lord Geremy, the Black Lord of Lore, before paus- ing as several guards walk onto the balcony bringing out Sir Daniel stripped of his armor and in thick chains.

“Are you sure that you won’t change your mind and join us?” Vladimir asks him.
 

“I’m afraid not,” Daniel replies. “How about you? Are you ready to repent of your ways.”

“Hmmff! You are delusional. Very well then, I have a surprise for you, Great Son of Henders,” Count Vladimir says as he walks over to the chained Sir Daniel drawing his sword. “Now for your ‘thorn in the flesh,” Count Vladimir says to Daniel before driving the tip of his splintered blade into Sir Daniel’s side. Daniel grunts in pain as he drops to his knees, still bound by the thick chains. Vladimir gives his sword a good twist and watches with enjoyment at Daniel’s plight.

“Enough!” Lord Geremy echoes sternly. “He must be allowed to defend himself against the dragon.”

Vladimir glances at Lord Geremy, then withdraws his sword from Daniel’s side.

Sir Daniel, still on his knees, begins to pray. “Lord God, give me Your strength…”

“You are pathetic!” Vladimir interupts, angered, as he looms over Sir Daniel. “Calling on your God to save you. Where is the logic in that? I am the only one who can save you now. You should be praying to me!”

Sir Daniel looks up at Count Vladimir and says boldly, That’s the thing about faith– it defies all logic.

In this excerpt from the novel, Nephilim the Remnants, Sir Daniel tells his captor that “the thing about faith is– it defies all logic.”  Recalling some of the great events of faith found in the Bible, this seems to be a very accurate statement about faith. 

Here are some examples of Faith Defying Logic found in the Bible-

  • Abraham and Sarah giving birth to a son in their extreme old age– 90 and 100 years old. (Genesis 21:1-7)
  • Moses parting the Red Sea as the Israelites walked through on dry ground to escape the Egyptian army. (Exodus 14)
  • The fall of the city of Jericho by the Israelites walking circles around it. (Joshua 5:13-6:27)
  • A boy named David defeating the giant Goliath with a small stone. (1 Samuel 17)
  • Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego surviving inside the fiery furnace after refusing to bow down before the Babylonian idol. (Daniel 3)
  • Daniel surviving the night in a den of hungry lions for boldly praying to God. (Daniel 6)
  • Jonah saved from drowning by being swallowed by a whale. (Jonah)
  • Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. (John 11)
  • Jesus allowing himself to be killed on a cross so He could be raised back to life and forgive all sins! (Matt. 27 & 28, Mark 15 & 16, Luke 23 & 24, John 19-21)

And the list could go on. None of these things made any logical sense but by faith they happened and the outcome was amazing! God doesn’t always call us to do things that make sense, especially in the eyes of others and many times they don’t even make sense to ourselves. But remember to hold onto your faith in God even when it doesn’t make sense because the Bible tells us –

“My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”  (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Hidden Easter Eggs in Nephilim the Remnants

easter eggs

This Easter season, I thought it only appropriate to share some of the hidden Easter Eggs in the book, Nephilim the Remnants. No, I’m not talking about colorful plastic eggs with candy inside or decorative, hard-boiled Easter eggs, I’m talking about the hidden treasures found in a movie, video game, or in this instance, a book. Now you may have picked up on some of these Easter Eggs in Nephilim the Remnants all on your own but if you haven’t, here are 5 Easter Eggs just for you:

  • First, there is the supposed pirate, Captain Chris, whose full name  Christopher T. Ian hints to his true character. He goes primarily by Chris through-out the story. So using his first name, Chris, combined with the letter T of his middle initial and the letters of his last name Ian, it spells Christian.
  • Next, there is a major connection between the evil sorcerer Maylor and the military general, Rolyam which is revealed towards the end of the story. But there is a subtle hint to their connection revealed in the spelling of their names, as well. The name Rolyam is Maylor spelled backwards.
  • The character Princess Johanna in the story is based upon the author’s real life wife who is also named Johanna. He wanted to give her something with her own name in print because he remembers her talking about how her name was so unique as a child that she could never find anything with her name printed on it.
  • Also, the main character’s title in the story is Sir Daniel, the Great Son of Henders. Son of Henders is derived from the author’s last name- Henderson. Furthermore, Sir Daniel is mentioned as being a descendant of the legendary, Lord David Henders– and David is the author’s first name.
  • Finally, the most important Easter Egg of all. It is not hidden, yet some will miss this powerful gift. It is the one of salvation and eternal life given to us by Jesus Christ, Himself. Towards the end of chapter 15, a prayer to receive salvation from the LORD is modeled in bold print. Confessing these words with your mouth and believing them in your heart will grant you God’s forgiveness of all your sins- past, present, & future. (But you don’t have to wait to read Nephilim the Remnants to receive this gift, you can have it right now by going here and confessing and believing in your heart.)

Have you ever wondered what is actually at the end of the rainbow? Well, for all those skeptics who claim that there is nothing at the end of the rainbow because they know someone who’s been there and found nothing- That is because they found the beginning of the rainbow, not the end.

But you’re in luck, because once upon a time, a little leprechaun shared with me the secret of what is really at the end of a rainbow. So now, I am going to share that secret, with you.

Ready. Alright. Here goes. With a wink of his eye and a click of his heels, he said to me, “Somewhere, over the rainbow beyond where the bluebirds fly, at the rainbow’s end, there is…”  Wait for it.  “…a pot of gold!”  That’s right, a pot of gold, but that’s not all, he then went on to say, “…and in the middle of that pot of gold there is a single copy of the Christian fantasy fiction novel, Nephilim the Remnants!”  That’s right, every leprechaun’s favorite book is Nephilim the Remnants! Can you believe it! Now remember folks, you heard it here first!

This post is obviously a fictional account to promote my book but The real truth about the rainbow’s treasure is found in the Bible – in Genesis 9:11-16 

11 “I [God] establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”

There are many memorable quotes found in the fantasy fiction novel, Nephilim the Remnants. This quote specifically comes from the point in the story where the hero, Sir Daniel the Great Son of Henders, faces off against his nemesis, Lord Geremy the black Lord of Lore, for the first time.

“We are one in the same, you and I. The last remnants of an ancient race.”

Standing on a high bridged castle skywalk, Lord Geremy calls out to Sir Daniel making the above statement upon discovering the supernatural glow of Sir Daniel’s eyes. Thus revealing that Sir Daniel is no ordinary man but that he, like himself, is a Nephilim. That is they are both part man and part fallen angel. Then follows an epic battle between these two Nephilim warriors.
