Similar to what newspapers in the 19th Century did the will publish a chapter a day from the book Deceptions in the Air. This fictional book is a blend of reality and conspiracy with a mix of Biblical Prophecy. My hope is that you enjoy the story, while it puts a desire in your heart to seek Truth. 


Jack closed the door behind him and decided to head up the street where he had noticed a convenience store.

“Okay, I think today might be a good day to take up smoking again,” he snickered.

Looking around he saw nice homes and people working in their yards. As he would pass the yard-workers, most would nod and say good morning.

I guess suburban life wouldn’t be all that bad, he thought to himself. He was trying hard to put other thoughts into his mind in hopes of replacing much of what he had experienced over the last few weeks… especially the last 48 hours. But the thoughts of Holograms, UFO’s, God’s wrath, Satan’s plan, Jesus coming back and Bri getting married, would not leave.

“What’s all this about?” he stopped, yelling into the sky. “Look... if You are really there, I mean like if You really exist God… show me Your might…. Your strength. Show me something, so I know You hear me.”

Just as Jack finished his request to the Almighty, unknown to him, the same cloud and wind that Alex had experienced a few hundred miles away down near Wilmington Beach was heading straight towards him from the Southeast.

A tree limb scraped his leg as the wind began to pick up. Jack turned around to see what was happening. Never in his life did he remember witnessing what he was seeing. A very large, dark and strange shape cloud was blowing towards him. He stood there a second in shock staring at the sky.

“Okay. Maybe I demanded too hard. I see... You might have heard me... I believe in You now. Please don’t hurt me!” Jack yelled, as he ran towards the convenience store to take cover.

The wind was so strong that the door blew open for Jack to enter. Jack and the store clerk both dove behind the counter of the store just as a huge gust of wind shattered the front display window. Glass flew everywhere with a loud thunderous roar.

Then, the cloud blew away as fast as it appeared along with the wind.

As the two climbed out from behind the counter to see what had just happened, the clerk looked at Jack and asked, “What was that?”

“I think it was God answering my request to prove to me He exist,” a wide eyed Jack answered still in shock.

“Maybe next time you might ask Him for something a little different… like let’s say a winning lotto ticket!” the clerk added a little patronizing as he grabbed the broom to begin sweeping up all the broken glass and clutter that had blown in from the wind.
