Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye Part Three: The Unveiling
by Patrick Higgins
KINDLE BARGAIN #ad
On a cold and blustery, snowy Saturday afternoon in late November, more than 111,000 people were crammed inside Michigan Stadium, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to watch the Michigan Wolverines play the Ohio State Buckeyes. It was a heated college football rivalry that had spanned more than a century.
No one inside the stadium was prepared for what transpired after long-foretold Bible prophecy came to pass before their very eyes, causing many to vanish into thin air. Fear and panic filled the hearts and minds of everyone who miraculously survived the mayhem.
But what happened inside Michigan Stadium was only a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the world. In the blink of an eye, life as humanity had known it was forever changed, when the Great Disappearing Act came to pass.

Each brief devotion in this book for children, teens, and families, will make you smile, make you think, and make you want to get to know Jesus better.
“I’ve had a passion for writing since I met up-and-coming author, Judy Blume, when I was in the sixth grade. Over the years my life has given me more ammunition for storytelling than you can imagine. But I’m not the kind of writer who just tells a story. I want people to learn something from it. Even if the take-away is how not to change the water in the fish bowl, why it’s not child abuse to make your kids pick up walnuts, or something much deeper–like what it means to live without an older brother who died in the service of our country, or why a relationship with God should be your number-one priority, I want my stories…my words to encourage, inform, and inspire.” by Darla Noble

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1
Wisdom, encouragement, and exhortation is contained in these pages. Not because of the author’s brilliance, but because of the words of truth contained in the gospel of John. And just as the Apostle John didn’t draw any attention to himself, so also J. C. Ryle clearly and wonderfully directs his words and our thoughts towards the inspired words of scripture. If we truly love God, we will love His word; and the more study His word, the more we will love God.
In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God’s unique son. But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God.
As in a court of law, they want to shout, “Objection!” They say, “If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world?” Or, “If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him?” Or, “If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell?”In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief–the eight “heart” barriers to faith.
If there is a loving God, then why is it that … ? You’ve heard that question, perhaps asked it yourself. No matter how you complete it, at its root lies the issue of pain.Does God order our suffering? Does he decree an abusive childhood, orchestrate a jet crash, steer a tornado through a community? Or did he simply wind up the world’s mainspring and now is watching from a distance? In this Gold Medallion Award–winning book, Philip Yancey reveals a God who is neither capricious nor unconcerned. Using examples from the Bible and from his own experiences, Yancey looks at pain – physical, emotional, and spiritual—and helps us understand why we suffer.

To encourage readers to come to a greater appreciation for the Psalms…
