(This story chronicles the adventures of Steven O'Neill, his wife Sarah, and their friends during the End Times. Judgment has already struck the U.S., and Steve and his friends have reached the vast continent of Asia. Witness the amazing things God will reveal about the coming kingdom of the Beast (or the Antichrist), the Mark of the Beast, and the Tribulation period. This story should keep you fascinated, as a realistic account of the future unfolds in the form of a fictional story.

But, this story is not just a story. It contains messages from God and prophecies that actually shall happen. It is written as fiction with fictional characters, but the message of the story is very real, and the cataclysmic events, touched on in this story, will actually impact this earth as God’s Holy Bible and its prophecies unfold. The world will soon enter a time much like that portrayed in this story. I encourage you to seek God about this to see what He will show you.)


PART 18: Deliverance"

“Hu and Cheng, where are you?” Quang’s voice echoed through the jungle.

After the loud helicopter rotors had awoken the three Christians, Hu and Cheng had hurried into a dense cluster of bushes a short distance from their sleeping bags, small tarps, and backpacks. But, Hu’s backpack was missing from the sleeping area.
Meanwhile, Quang had quickly grabbed the backpacks, tarps, and sleeping bags, and hid them in other bushes. Then, he ran toward the cover of a dense patch of broad-leafed elephant ear plants, which were mingled with rice-paper plants.

Soon after, the sound of Chinese soldiers talking had reached his ears. He had crouched as low as he could and waited in the dark. Finally, after what had seemed a long, long time, the soldiers had left the vicinity, and their helicopter had returned to pick them up. Seeing them finally gone, Quang had crawled out from the bushes and brushed leaves and small bugs off his shirt.

Now, he was looking for his friends, but they were nowhere to be seen, and dense foliage blocked his view in all directions. A few stars peeked through small gaps in the jungle canopy overhead.

“My son,” God’s loving voice spoke to Quang.

“Yes, Abba Father,” Quang said. “Is that you?”

“It is I, the Lord your God,” Abba God said to his spirit and soul. “I love you very much. Look to your left, and walk in that direction, and you will find your friends. And, I the Lord your God have spoken.”

“Yes, Abba Father, I’ll do that. Thank you,” Quang said as he walked in the direction God showed him.

Pushing through some bushes, Quang soon came upon a small opening in the dense foliage and immediately saw two figures in a patch of moonlight, which was splashed on the rainforest floor and was casting their shadows.

“Hu, Cheng,” Quang said, “are you there?”

Turning toward him, the two men saw him approaching and walked in his direction.

“It’s us, Quang,” Hu said, wearing his backpack, which he had brought with him earlier.

“Are you okay? What happened to you?” Quang said.

“God delivered us from certain arrest, and our handcuffs miraculously dropped off our wrists,” Cheng said, showing his hands to Quang.

“Praise God!” Quang said, excitedly with wide-open eyes. “God has delivered us from those who sought our lives, like he did for Daniel in the lion’s den. But, I feel we need to start walking tonight. The helicopter might return.”

“That would be a good idea,” Hu said, starting to walk back toward the direction where their sleeping bags had been.

Hiss. A hissing sound caused Hu to freeze in his tracks. Slowly, he turned his head to the left, and he felt his heartbeat speed up. A chain viper* appeared in the moonlight raising its body into a striking posture with its mouth open to expose its fangs. Large, black-rimmed, oval-shaped spots appeared on its tan skin. [*Or a Russell’s viper.]

Hu tried to breath as calmly as he could, but he felt afraid that it would strike him. He began backing up slowly. Suddenly, another hiss reached his ears from his right. It was a different chain viper, and it was only four feet away: too close for comfort. He felt surrounded. Hu decided then that he had to just run. He turned around quickly and began to run, but a sharp pain suddenly shot through his ankle.

To his horror, Hu saw a chain viper fastened onto his leg just above his shoe and ankle, and below the hem of his trousers. He cried out in fear and pain, and tried to shake it off. A couple seconds later, the viper dropped off into the bushes.

Hu ran, limping through the jungle, and saying, “Lord God, please help me! Please help me.” Forty feet away from the vipers, Hu came to a stop in a patch of moonlight. The pain was throbbing through his ankle. Then, he remembered what he read in the Bible how Jesus said in Mark 16, verses 16-18, that Christians will not be harmed by poison or serpents (i.e. snakes).

“Dear God,” Hu said, keeping his eyes open to watch out for snakes, “I trust you to protect me from the poison. Lord, keep me safe and keep these snakes and poisonous animals away from me. I trust you to. In Jesus Christ’s Name, Amen.”

“I will, My son,” Abba God said to Hu’s spirit and soul.

Then, Hu also remembered how a follower of Jesus had been miraculously protected from snake poison in the book of Acts. The Apostle Paul had been protected after having received a poisonous snake bite in the book of Acts, chapter 28. Paul had arrived on the island of Melita (or Malta). He had just experienced a shipwreck, and all the men’s lives had been spared.

They had gathered sticks and fallen branches on the island and started a fire to warm themselves. As Paul was gathering some sticks to added to the fire, a poisonous snake suddenly bit his hand. He shook it off into the flames, and felt no harm from the poison, just as Jesus had said his followers would feel no harm from poison.

Hu noticed that his ankle had not swollen at all and that the bite gouges, where the fangs had entered his skin, were drying up quickly. Trickles of blood had only moved a few centimeters down his ankle.

“Hu,” a voice called his name from some yards away.

“I’m here,” Hu said.

Bushes rustled and Cheng came into view. “Hu, are you alright? What happened?”

“I was bitten by a chain viper,” Hu said.

“You are a dead man,” Cheng said, with his eyes widening. “May God spare your life. Where were you bitten?”

Hu pointed to his ankle and pulled up his trouser leg. Cheng bent down to look at the bite mark, and his brow furrowed with bewilderment. He shook his head and gently placed his finger near the bite mark. Hu didn’t wince or flinch. ‘That’s strange,’ Cheng thought.

“What happened?” Quang called out as he approached them.

“Hu got a snake bite from a chain viper but I don’t see any swelling. This is a miracle,” Cheng said still crouching beside Hu’s leg.

“God is protecting him from the poison,” Quang said, smiling. “He did that for me when I was bitten by a cobra. The wound didn’t swell up at all, and I felt no effects of poison. The people who knew I’d been bitten didn’t believe that I was bitten by a cobra. But, it was a miracle of God that I am alive. Praise God’s awesome name!”

“I remember,” Hu said, “how Jesus said in Luke chapter 10 that we have power over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt us. He also said that we will have the power to trample underfoot snakes and scorpions.” 

“Do you remember the verse?” Cheng said.

“I need to get my Bible,” Hu said, lowering his backpack to the ground. Zipping it open, he reached in and pulled out his Bible. Before long, Hu had turned the Bible to a certain place in the book of Luke.

“Luke 10:19 is a very good verse,” Hu said, smiling. “I quoted it earlier when I confronted the Chinese soldiers. In Luke 10:19, Jesus Christ said: 'Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.'”

“Praise God!” Cheng said. “You challenge me to take the Bible literally. I want to do that from now on.”

Just after he said it, a droning, thumping sound reached their ears. It was growing louder by the second. All three instantly recognized what it was: the sound of a helicopter approaching from the distance.

“They’re returning!” Cheng said, alarmed. “We need to get our stuff and get out of here.”

“Don’t be afraid, Cheng,” Quang said. “God will take care of us, just as He already did for you and Hu earlier. If a snake bite can’t hurt us, and if the soldiers can’t arrest you, when you hold to the Bible’s promises, then, why should they be able to hurt us the second time around?”

But, Cheng didn’t seem to be listening. Fear tightened his facial features. “I need to get out of here,” he said before hurrying off into the bushes, vanishing from Hu’s sight.

“Let’s pray for Cheng,” Quang said calmly. “Fear is our enemy. It harms our faith and handicaps our walk with God. The answer to fear is to just choose to believe God regardless of what our feelings are telling us.”

“I agree,” Hu said, feeling more confident about God’s power, love, and protection.

Together, they interceded and prayed for Cheng and for other believers in Christ. Before long, the helicopter arrived and hovered 100 feet away, again tossing the upper branches of trees in the blast from its loud rotors. Hu could not see them, but he was sure soldiers were zipping down static lines from the helicopter to the rainforest floor. In moments, they would fan out in groups of four and search through the forest with their advanced, helmet-mounted and gun-mounted heat-sensing equipment. The only answer to this trial was to trust in God, Hu realized.

Hu and Quang hurried over to a dense cluster of bushes, making sure there were no snakes within, and crouched down low.

Five minutes later, the sound of rustling came from nearby bushes. Hu peeked out through gaps in his hiding place to see the shadowy forms of Chinese soldiers walking carefully through the forest. Heat-sensing optics, attached to helmet mounts, were locked over many soldiers’ eyes. Each soldier carried Type 95 bullpup machine guns or Type ‘Lóng’ 64 machine guns, which were equipped with heat sensors.

Soldiers just feet away walked past Hu and Quang’s hiding place and continued combing the jungle for Christians using their heat-sensing technology. Hu knew that they should have located him, but God must have kept the sensors blind to Hu and Quang’s presence.

“You, come here,” a soldier said gruffly a few yards away. Hu flinched and peered through the bushes, trying to see the soldier.

As he carefully moved leafy twigs apart, Hu caught a glimpse of a soldier approaching a bush some yards away from Hu’s position. The bush shook and rustled as a man pushed his way through of it. Then, Cheng, trembling in fear, stepped into a patch of moonlight, having emerged from the dense foliage.

“Dear God,” Hu said quietly, “I ask you to protect him.”

“You Christian,” the soldier said angrily, pointing his gun at Cheng, “where are your friends?”

Cheng remained quiet.

“I asked you a question,” the soldier snarled.

Cheng didn’t speak, but lowered his head. The guard slapped him in the face and shouted, “Speak up and tell us where your Christian friends are hiding!” [See the "Footnote" at the end of this chapter.]

“My son,” God said to Hu’s spirit, “I want you to confront these soldiers and tell them that if they will not submit to Me, they will perish, and that you will call fire from heaven upon them, unless they repent, and unless they leave. Go do that, and I will bless you. And, I the LORD your God and Abba Father have spoken.”

“Yes Father God,” Hu said, feeling courage begin to return to his soul in stronger amounts. He pushed his way out of the bushes and approached the PLA soldiers with boldness that Hu knew he normally didn’t have.

Soldiers wheeled around and aimed their guns at him. “Halt!” they snapped, but Hu continued walking.

The soldier confronting Cheng, turned suddenly and glared at Hu. It was the same PLA sergeant Hu had seen earlier.

“So, you are the Christian I confronted earlier,” the sergeant said arrogantly. “You slipped away when my back was turned. But, now I’ve found you again.”

“That is not true,” Hu said. “I commanded you to leave in the name of Jesus Christ, and you had to go. And, now, I say to you in the Name of Jesus Christ, who is your Creator, who you despise, that if you will not repent and leave us alone, I will call fire from heaven down upon you and upon all who will not willingly leave. If you do not submit to God, you will perish.”

“Hey, Christian,” the sergeant said coldly, “what makes you think you can tell me what to do? I am Sergeant Kun Ren, a decorated veteran of the American war, when we invaded the U.S. I have imprisoned many Christians during my career as a soldier in the PLA. What makes you think that you can escape me? You think that your God will bring fire down upon me? Is that a joke?”

A few soldiers nearby chuckled as they continued to aim their guns at Hu’s chest.

“I will boil you alive and pull out your nails. You will suffer a long and terrible death for your arrogance against me and against your country, Christian!” Kun said angrily before he keyed his two-way radio and ordered his men: “Take him down, but don’t kill him just yet. We’ll make him suffer a long and slow death.”

Soldiers started walking toward him still training their guns on him.

“You have shown your true nature, that you will never repent from your sin,” Hu said boldly. “I call fire down from heaven upon you and your hardened men in the name of Jesus Christ.”

The soldiers continued to advance toward him. They would be on top of him within fifteen seconds. Suddenly, as they approached, several bright beams of light, shaped like columns of fire, shot through the jungle canopy and passed through trees without affecting them. Within a second of time, the beams of fire engulfed all the Chinese soldiers, except for one, who was two-hundred yards away. In that instant, the rainforest was brightly lit up as if by floodlights.

Fire from heaven

The next moment, the jungle was back to its nighttime gloom. Pools of moonlight splashed on the forest floor here and there. In the moonlight appeared several black craters, which had not been there before. Still shocked by the powerful miracle, Hu realized that where each soldier had stood, only a smoking, black crater remained.

Cheng’s jaw dropped as he scanned over the small craters where soldiers had once stood. It was hard for him to believe what he saw before his very eyes. The destruction was overwhelming. This was God’s power to judge the wicked in Biblical proportions. Elijah, the prophet, had called fire from heaven upon an altar and later upon soldiers who had sought to take his life.

‘God is doing today what He has done in the Bible times,’ Cheng realized, relieved at God’s powerful deliverance. If it hadn’t been for God’s deliverance, he and his friends would have been tortured to death, he believed.

“Great is our loving God!” Cheng said loudly, raising his hands in the air as he stepped forward over the blackened crater, where Kun Ren had stood.

“God be praised forever!” Quang said as he approached Cheng.

“Abba God, you are awesome and Holy,” Hu said to God loudly. “There is none who can deliver like you can!”

EXCERPT from Part 19: ... Georgy Veselov, with some fear in his eyes, said, “The soldiers… they found the hatch and I, I heard their voices coming through. They noticed the lock is missing. They are opening the hatch as I speak! We have to go to the sewer passage now!”

Men looked at each other with concern and began talking quickly among themselves about what they should do.


Suddenly, the door swung open and ...
