Chapter Twenty-Five

PART 25: “Leaving for the Woods / Autocannon”


"Leaving for the Woods"

(A road through a forest. Click for source.)
A Mercedes-Benz Viano taxi van took its passengers through scenic Norwegian woodland. The forest was sparser and often occupied by rural homes closer to the town of Hamar, but as the miles rolled by, the woods became more dense and harder to see much beyond thirty feet from the road, and the houses appeared much rarer. The sky was blue and full of fluffy clouds, and the sun was up near its zenith.

Karl, Abdul, Elise, Toben, and Inga talked quietly with one another as they rode down the miles of a narrow, country road, which had branched off from the main road miles back.

“Karl,” Abdul, a 25-year-old Syrian man, said as he looked at the scenery moving past them.

“Yes, Abdul?” Karl Holst said, turning toward his friend, who was sitting on the same bench seat.

“Are we going to survive out here in these woods with just a couple days’ worth of food in our rucksacks?” Abdul asked.

Newly purchased rucksacks, backpacking gear, canned food, metal utensils, hiking boots, and winter garments were stuffed in a rental trailer behind the van. The driver, a different man than their first taxi driver, had been paid well and given a large tip to go well out of his normal range of taxiing. Thankfully, he wasn’t a nosy man, and he didn’t ask them why they had purchased winter clothing and coats when it was still summer in Norway. [Read how Karl and his friends first left Norway in Part 22.]

“God will provide for us and will take care of all our needs,” Karl said. “We saw the angel He sent to deliver us from the secret police. You saw how they ran for their lives when that angelic warrior from heaven descended. We will see God provide for us in other ways too, including providing food, clothing, and shelter.”

“I think you’re right,” Abdul said, scratching his chin in thought.

“Do you remember, in Matthew 6, how Jesus told His disciples, which included more than just twelve, to seek God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, and all the things they need would be given to them?”

“Yes,” Abdul said.

“Jesus had talked about not worrying about food, water, or clothing because He will provide those things and more to those who seek His will and do it,” Karl said. “Paul wrote in Philippians 4:19 how God shall supply all our needs. I’ll quote it: ‘But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’”

“That is a good point,” Abdul said. “So, God has to provide for all our needs out in the wilderness because He is faithful to the holy scriptures. That reminds me. Jesus also multiplied food to more than 5,000 people at one time. I think that is in Matthew 14.* So, He will do this for us?” [* See Matthew 14:14-21.]

“He will do the same for us because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever,” Karl said. “Hebrews 13:8 says: ‘Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.’ The Bible also says that Abba God has no favorites or respect of persons. He does not show love to one person, and neglect to show love to another. No, He loves everyone the same. In James 2:9, Abba God tells us to not show favoritism because He doesn’t have favorites. It says in James 2:9: ‘But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.’ Also, Romans 2:11 says: ‘For there is no respect of persons with God.’”

“That’s a good point,” Abdul said. “So, the same Jesus who multiplied the loaves of bread and the fish 2000 years ago will do the same today when we need food.”

“We can count on that,” Karl said, smiling, as he leaned back in his seat.

Abdul turned his attention to the window and gazed out at the countryside rolling by, deep in thought.

(Prison door. Click for source.)
While he did that, Karl thought about the events that had transpired since he was arrested in Oslo, at the dockyard, by the secret police. He had seen at least three powerful miracles happen since then. The first was when an angel dressed in human clothes, and appearing like a man, had miraculously led him out of the SCNP* headquarters prison. The doors had been unlocked and opened effortlessly for the angel as he had led Karl out of the high-security prison area.

[* The SCNP stands for the Special Command for National Protection, a fictional name for the Norwegian secret police, which will actually exist in the near future, according to messages God has given this writer. The future secret police, which will exist, may have a different name than the one in this book. I encourage you to see what God will show you about this, if you are curious.]

The second powerful miracle was the fact that the secret police did not find him in his apartment when he had returned there. The third was the appearance of a heavenly warrior angel, who scared the secret police so much that they fled for their lives, and did not return to try to capture Karl and his friends.

Karl also thought about the events following the latest miracle. After leaving the hotel in Hamar, the group had visited a couple sporting goods shops and had purchased the outdoor equipment. They also had purchased some extra clothing for wearing throughout the year.

Karl had borrowed Elise’s phone and had sent cryptic text messages to the rest of the Bible study group of over twenty people, and had informed them that he was leaving to a location God had showed him, and that they would need to seek Abba God about what He would want them to do. Karl knew that the authorities could spy on his text messages, if they wanted to, and could even locate his position, when he used the cell phone.

(Sim card. Click for source.)
So, after he had finished, he had asked Elise and everyone else to take their cell phones, remove and destroy the sim cards, and throw the cell phones away. Karl had left his cell phone in the apartment, but had removed the sim card before the group had left in the taxi. His card was broken to pieces and thrown into a garbage can back in Hamar, Norway.

“Karl,” Inga said from the seat behind him.

He turned to see her smiling face. Inga was dressed in a light jacket, women’s green hiking trousers, and hiking boots. Her brown hair was back in a ponytail. She looked pretty to him, but he didn’t feel comfortable telling her that.

“Yes, Inga,” Karl said, smiling.

“Have you ever gone backpacking before?” she said, curious.

He knew they were just friends and he had not felt like moving their relationship closer than that. She was a little more than nine years younger than he was, but as he had gotten to know her better, he began to feel that their age difference wasn’t as significant as he had thought in previous weeks.

“I went backpacking no more than three times,” Karl said, “but the last time was about eight years ago, when I was 24.”

“I forgot that you were 32,” Inga said.

“And, you’re 22, right?” Karl said.

“Yes, Karl, but I’ll be turning 23 in November, just a few months from now,” Inga said.

“We’ll do something for your birthday,” Karl said, winking.

Inga chuckled before saying, “I wonder what kind of cake we could have out there?”

She waved casually toward the forest flying by her window.

“God will provide for all our needs,” Karl said. “I believe that if we ask Him, He may provide a cake for you.”

“Why would He do that?” Inga said. “I believe God will provide for our actual needs, but why would God provide a birthday cake, Karl?”

“Because God loves His children,” Karl said.

“I didn’t realize God would give us gifts like that,” Inga said.

“Wouldn’t a kind earthly father give gifts to his children?” Karl said.

“That’s true, but God is God,” Inga said.

“God is our loving Abba Father,” Karl said. “You know how in Galatians 4:6-7 God’s Word reveals that God is our Abba Father. Do remember those verses?”

“You’ve shared them with me before, but I forgot exactly what they were,” Inga said.

(A blue backpack. Click for source.)
Karl leaned over and unzipped his blue backpack on the floor. Pulling out his Bible, he began turning the pages. Once he was at Galatians chapter 4, Karl read: “‘[6] And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. [7] Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.’”

“But, I’m not a son. I’m a daughter,” Inga quipped with a smile.

“Inga, you know that God has no favorites,” Karl said. “Galatians 3:28-29 says that both Jews and Gentiles, and men and women, receive God’s promises and blessings through Christ, equally.”

“What are the exact words, Karl?” Inga said. “My Bible is in my purse.”

Karl flipped over to Galatians chapter 3, and said, “Galatians 3:28-29 says: ‘[28] There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. [29] And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.’”

“You’re right. I was mostly joking about what I said earlier. God had no favorites,” Inga said.

“Why do you say ‘mostly’?” Karl said, squinting at her.

“Well,” Inga said, drawing out the word, “I don’t know. I guess I never really felt like I really was God’s daughter. I felt more like I was God’s servant, or something like that.”

“That’s too bad,” Karl said empathetically. “Why have you felt that way?”

“Well, I guess I didn’t think that God really cared for me as a daughter,” Inga said. “My own dad got divorced from my mom when I was 14, and I haven’t seen him much since then. I felt it was like God had just kind of abandoned me. But, I know He didn’t. But, it felt like that.”

“I feel for you. That really is hurtful,” Karl said gently with care in his voice.

“I guess I have mostly gotten over it,” Inga said before she turned away and looked back out the window at the passing pine trees.

There was a pause in their conversation before Karl said, “But, Inga, God really does love you as a daughter. He said so in His Word in another place that I now remember. Romans 8:14-15, and on, tells us that we are sons of God -- referring to both sons and daughters of God -- and that we have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear. Would you like me to read it?”

“Sure,” Inga said before she took a drink from a water bottle.

Karl flipped to the page and said, “Romans 8:14-15 says: [14] For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. [15] For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.We just need to believe that, and we will begin to feel that truth in our hearts.”

“You’re right,” Inga said after a pause. “We are children of God, and He is our Abba Father. I want to read the Romans 8 now that you’ve shared those verses.”



A few more miles passed before the taxi van pulled to a stop on the side of the road. Fifty feet ahead lay a concrete barricade across the road. A yellow, solid, metal gate blocked their way through the only opening. Affixed to the gate, a bright sign declared in Norwegian: “No unauthorized vehicles are allowed beyond this point.” Below that title appeared a sentence in smaller font which proclaimed that anyone passing the gate without proper authorization would be fined 90,000 rubles* and given a 30-day prison sentence.

[* This writer understands that in the future the ruble will be worth about $30 US dollars from the year 2017. So, the 90,000 rubles would be approximately $3,000 from the year 2017. This writer was told by God that in the future, a neo-soviet Russia will conquer all of Europe and that the ruble will be the common currency in Europe. I encourage you to seek God about this if you are interested.]

The taxi van driver squinted through his windshield and noticed a black object attached to a metal post a few feet from the barricade. He turned toward his passengers and said, “Listen, everyone, I can’t go any further. There is a barricade and a strong warning not to cross. If you want to go further, you’ll have to walk. But, just know that there is a video camera watching the road on that pole.” As he said that, the driver pointed toward the black object on the metal pole.

“So,” he continued, “if you pass their line of demarcation, and you’re caught, you’ll be in trouble with the law. Do you want me to take you back?”

“Let’s go back a few miles and stop on the shoulder of the road,” Karl said.

The others agreed, feeling a little nervous.

“Okay,” the driver said as he shifted back into drive and conducted a U-turn.

Seven minutes later, Karl leaned forward and said to the driver, “Sir, you can pull to a stop now.”

The driver slowed the van and moved onto the shoulder beside a dense cluster of pine trees.

He turned around in his seat and said, “Why are you folks hiking out here anyways, if I may ask? You’re fairly close to the government boundaries marking the forbidden zone. I’ve heard that the government has set up sensors along the demarcation lines of this zone and if you pass those sensors, they will alert the authorities. The government has armed drones and soldiers in a military base about twenty miles away, according to the GPS. Do you want to go further back?”

Karl quickly and silently asked God what to say. Abba God replied: “My son, tell this man that you are on a hiking trip and that you will be wise with where you go. And, I the Lord your God and Abba Father have spoken.”

(Pine forest. Click for source.)
“Sir, we are on hiking trip and we will be wise with where we go,” Karl said.

“How long, if I may ask?” the driver said.

“It will be a long as it needs to be,” Karl said.

“Okay,” the driver said, sighing. “If you need me to pick you up, you can just give us a call at this number.” He held out a business card and handed it to Karl, who had gotten out of his seat. Karl took it even though he knew that none of them had cell phones since they had agreed to get rid of them.

Once all their bags were unloaded from the trailer behind the van, Toben shut the sliding van door and the vehicle drove off. After a few moments, the taxi disappeared behind a bend in the road.

(Eurasian Skylark. Click for source.

Now standing in the outdoors, Karl looked up at the pines and watched their branches sway back and forth in a gentle breeze, which sent a pleasant, pine fragrance Karl’s way. Eurasian skylarks chirped from their perches in the trees and red squirrels scurried through the branches, exploring their little world. While the animals chirped and enjoyed their home in the trees, the humans below began adjusting their rucksacks and putting them on, after securing their lightweight tents and sleeping bags to the upper portions of the rucksacks.

“I’ve never gone hiking before,” Elise said as she adjusted her shoulder straps, “but it will be much better than going to a prison.”

“That’s for sure,” Abdul said. “But, I think backpacking will be fun.”

“I haven’t either,” Toben said, “but I do agree with Elise. It would be far better to backpack than to be in prison.”

“Let’s go this way,” Karl said, as he stepped forward in a direction that was perpendicular to the road.

“Do you think we’re the only ones out here?” Abdul said as they walked into the dense evergreen forest several yards past the shoulder of the road.

“I think we are,” Karl said, “but I can’t be entirely sure.”

“What do you think will happen to our Christian friends in Oslo?” Inga said, pushing a tree branch out of her way. “Will God lead them into the wilderness too?”

“I believe He will,” Karl said as he stepped over a fallen log just ahead of Inga and Abdul.

They were walking across the forest on no particular path, but Karl carried a compass in his hand and kept an eye on it while he walked. Half a mile passed before they came to an area full of old spruce trees with thick trunks. A carpet of pine needles softened their footsteps and quietly crunched underneath their hiking boots.

(A barn swallow. Click for source.

Here, they stopped and sat down on a dead, giant, fallen spruce tree. Several unclipped water bottles from their belts and took long drinks. Up in a tree overhead, a male barn swallow sang, creating a peaceful atmosphere in the forest.

“Did we purchase water filters?” Inga said.

“No,” Karl said. “God had told me that He will provide clean water for us. He even said He will multiply the water in our bottles, just like He did for the widow’s pot of oil in 1 Kings 17.”

“What if we accidentally dumped all our water out?” Abdul said.

“Then, God will bring new water into the bottle,” Karl said. “After all, He provided water to the children of Israel when they were in a barren desert. Over three million people were fed and given water during their stay in a barren desert, in northwestern Arabia.* God will do the same for us.” [* Mount Sinai was mentioned in Galatians 4:25 as being in Arabia.]

“I agree, brother,” Toben said, before taking a long drink from his bottle.
As they drank, Karl set down his bottle and listened to the air. A faint buzzing sound came from forty yards away. The barn swallow leaped off its perch overhead and flew away. Karl strained to hear the buzzing sound better. But, in a few moments, it grew louder. It didn’t sound like an insect to him.

“Do you hear that?” Karl said to the group.

“What?” Inga said.

“Listen,” Karl said, looking up at the sky, which appeared through openings in the dense, forest canopy.

“What is that?” Elise said, frowning.

Before Karl could respond, a large black object with four buzzing rotors appeared in an opening in the trees. Karl stiffened, realizing it was a large quad-rotor drone, which was armed with a light rotary autocannon. It was being remote-controlled from miles away by a computer. Karl wanted to hide in a bush, but he had no time to hide, for the drone descended toward the group and hovered thirty feet away from them. The machine’s cameras captured them in detail after it had located them using heat sensors.

Elise and Inga covered their mouths while Karl, Abdul, and Toben held their breath.

Unknown to Karl, when he had taken them into the forest from the place where the taxi driver had dropped them off, sensors hidden in the forest, twenty feet from the road, had been activated, and small cameras had recorded the group’s heat signatures.

As the drone hovered, Karl prayed and began giving his fears to God.

(Click here to read this story in a PDF format.)
A computer back in a military base had quickly identified the location where the people were seen, and a computer-controlled drone was dispatched from a small storage building, where drones were kept. Several of those small buildings were located near the line of demarcation, which was identified by the gate sign some miles up the road.

“Should we try to find a hiding place?” Elise said.

“I don’t think we can hide from that drone,” Karl said.

Hovering in the air, the drone recorded their faces and estimated their heights, weights, and ages. The data was sent back to a computer in a military base about twenty miles from the line of demarcation. In seconds, the information was compared with biometric records, and their names were matched to their faces by advanced software. Just two seconds after the drone first captured them in its video camera, the order to fire was instantly sent to the drone, which was completely autonomous. No human hands guided it.

Suddenly, Karl saw the rotary autocannon under its belly begin spinning. Stroboscopic flashes of light poured out of the muzzle and a buzzing roar of rapid gunfire shot through the air. “BURRR…!” Branches began shuddering as the bullets struck them just inches from Karl’s head. In a small fraction of a second, the wall of armor-piercing bullets would reach Karl and his friends. 


“2 Kings 1, and Fire from Heaven”

Shining flashlights on their Bibles, in the darkness of a Yunnan jungle, three Asian, Christian men, Hu, Cheng, and Quang, shared scriptures with a Chinese soldier who had just gotten saved and born-again through Jesus Christ. This soldier had been one of several who had been sent to hunt down the Christians. Now, he was a Christian. A powerful miracle* he had seen sometime earlier in the Yunnan jungle had convinced him that there was an all-powerful, awesome God who was to be respected and worshipped. [* Read about that event in Part 18.]

Now, Hu was sharing with the soldier that God was not just a God of justice, who had anger for very rebellious, very hardened people, but that God was a God of love, mercy, and compassion, who loved the lost and was calling out to each one.

“By the way, what’s your name?” Hu said to the soldier.

“I am Sheng,” the soldier said.

“Sheng, God loves you, and that is why He spared you,” Hu said. “You were not hardened like your comrades were. God saw that they would never repent, and that is why He allowed me to call fire from heaven upon them like Elijah did in 2 Kings chapter 1.”

“What is 2 Kings 1?” Sheng said.

“It is a chapter in a book of the Bible,” Cheng Yuan, a 42-year-old man, said, entering the conversation.

“What does it say about calling fire from heaven?” Sheng asked, curious.

“When the king of Israel, King Ahaziah got sick,” Cheng said, “he sought after a false god, instead of the true God, to heal him. God had the Biblical prophet Elijah warn King Ahaziah that he would die because he sought after a demon, named Baalzebub, to heal him rather than the God of Israel.”

“After hearing that, Ahaziah sought to kill Elijah,” Cheng said as he began flipping through his Bible to a certain place. “The king sent a captain with a company of 50 soldiers to arrest and kill Elijah. But, Elijah called fire from heaven down upon them.

“This is what 2 Kings 1:9-10 says: ‘[9] Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down. [10] And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.’”

“That is shocking, but that’s exactly what I saw happen back there,” Sheng said, motioning toward the direction he came from in the moonlit jungle.

“God fights for those who trust in Him,” Quang, a Vietnamese man, said. “He will protect us and keep us all our days, as we look to Him and rest in Him.”
