This little novel is intended to give a time of vacation into fiction that rests and relies neither on devious sexual exploits, magnificent macho nor distorted concepts for its appeal. Itís about good and evil, but its motif is good, and the criterion is Christian, because thatís where goodness is definitively depicted and exhibited as the preceding 76 volumes in this set, In Praise of Christ Jesus, have shown.
In this novel, the character, HU, the Secretary of the Earth Unity Force, has been met before.
We have seen him in Cloud Nine in such places as Divine Agenda Ch. 7, and The Kingdom of Heaven Ch. 8, with some of the background in Joyful Jottings 8, and such sites as SMR pp. 750Bff., with News 121, 122, 82 and Biblical Blessings Ch. 2.
HU's name is from humanity, humanism and such bases, and has no reference to any historical figure of such a name. His organisation is imaginary, but may arise.
Here there is a project combining Christian perspective and Apologetics with fiction, in order to enable the mind to see things more personally, more courageously and more effectively. The deterioration of Hu is seen in terms of life's realities, and the conflict on the moon is in accord with a most reasonable interpretation of Acts 2:19-20, applied by Peter at Pentecost from the prophet Joel. In that speech, Verse 19 is in a series including vapour, smoke and fire, to which is added 'blood'; and immediately after this, in Verse 20, there is a further reference to blood, and not demonstrably but in enormous probability, this too refers to physical blood.
That blood ? it relates to the moon! It is one signal of Christís near return.
What would that imply ? It would appear that sanguinary conflict, space without purity, export of sin to the moon, of lunacy to the lunar is in train; that even the moon is not a protected species! that itís romantic past and old man figure are but idle harbingers of a future as cold as steel and hot as fury.
There has recently been a flurry of reports about China and the moon, indeed for several years from 2002 there have been presentations from this or that body or reporter concerning its intentions of space station and then moon occupancy, sometimes in terms of national glory for China, pursuit of international prestige, which of course can carry thoughts of greater domestic security, or economic exploitation of its contents.
Such admissions concerning the desired use of lunar resources, on occasion is accompanied by slight admissions of military potential, for after all, it becomes a cheap and relatively stable space station in itself; and it is limited, which suggests ... a race. Furthermore, you donít even have to build it.
On the other side, the USA in the 2004 presidential address just past, this February 2004, is also imparting designs and desires for further lunar development. There has evidently been a sense of frustration or almost despair on the part of some, as may appear in the novel to follow; and such talk has led to reference to vast sums being spent in securing the moon for diverse purposes, as a follow-up to the great American first of 1969, an occasion which the author was able to share with American citizens, as this was a year of an American pastorate, and not little was the excitement it roused in some, the pride, the sense of history.
At last, romantic fiction had come down to earth, and to the USA in particular, for had not earthlings gone up to the moon! Such seems to have been the exhilarated feeling.
Outbid by Sputnik and Gargarin, now the US could glory in a world first of tantalising proportions, a romance of adventure and a wonder of technology.
There is no specialised biblical indication of details on coming bloody encounters on the moon, and in this regard this work is simply fiction, which is its genre by choice; nor here is there the slightest intention to anticipate what is to be, in national terms of who may confront whom, and in what way, on the moon. It is limited, in the factual basis, to a vastly probable understanding from Acts that there will be man against man conflict on the moon; and this is set in the midst of other appalling developments hard indeed to differentiate from asteroid impact on earth, and at least as severe is the hazard predicted, or possible nuclear bombardment from space (Revelation 8:7-10).
Manís madness and divine judgment mingle like oxygen and flame. The last book in the Bible is rich in its exposure of the Ďintolerableí effects of this juxtaposition.
It reminds one of smoking for pleasure after the diagnosis of cancer has already been made. The provocations gain in abundance what they lack in style, and the disregard of God is potently like the indifference to cancer of someone already sporting a large carcinoma in the brain.
Effects resembling those of atomic radiation have already been noted from Zechariah 14:12, just as the atomic cloud such a twentieth century mark and signal, is forecast in Joel 2:30, that concise, precise element in the glance to the final phases before the Lord comes to bring redress to earth, and judgment. If there is one crucial physical symbol of the wonders of midget man making hay while the sun flickers in horror, it is this mushroom cloud, so clearly given its place as a signal of the cumulative thrust to the end of this Age; and if there is one in Joelís forecast it is this amazing phenomenon of a pillar of vapour.
The interweaving of diseased personality, which is by no means limited to human bombs from Islam (Luke 21:25, II Thessalonians 2), with spectacular events is part of this theme, and the spiritual MEANING of it all is in focus as the action crests and subsides into paths none would wish to tread.
This little novel is intended to give a little vacation into fiction that rests and relies neither on devious sexual exploits, magnificent macho or distorted concepts for its appeal. Itís about good and evil, but its motif is good, and the criterion is Christian, because thatís where goodness is definitively defined as the preceding 76 volumes in this set, In Praise of Christ Jesus, have shown.
We start with a reference to HU in his hupersonal power, in order to help the reader orient to the situation facing the earth in our envisaged future time - and not very much in the future. It is this introduction to the concept of Hu, which starts us on our conceptual journey, our personality sage, and then in Ch. 2 we come to the actual story as it develops, in particular and not only in general; and our story proper begins.
NOW WE PROCEED TO OUR PARTICULAR NOVEL, HAVING ESTABLISHED THE PRELIMINARY GROUNDS AND BACKGROUND, AND FIND OURSELVES SOON IN THE VERY MIDST OF THE PRIVATE AFFAIRS OF HU, AND HIS PUBLIC DOMAIN.
Finally, as this volume was first completed on Good Friday, 2004, it has seemed good to add our Easter message alongside the Preface.
EASTER MESSAGE 2004
The Jews are mourning their incessant losses from Hitler II 'final solution' advocates, a new type of religious variant, bent on the destruction of their people, no less than that abhorrent tyrant, if for different reasons.
The Gentiles mourn, and many are afraid, because their trains are to become coffins, their buildings morgues, their airliners assassination plots, because of the vainglory of those who seek for a religious dictatorship in the name of false gods.
The vast decline of faith in Jesus Christ as the coming King, and Judge (as foretold in II Peter 2:1ff., II Thessalonians 2:4ff.), is met by a corresponding vast decline in peace, so that the very name of 'peace' becomes for many like a dream when it is past.
There is however no decline in His preparations for return as shown in Answers to Questions Ch. 5 and SMR Ch. 8. Indeed, they proceed apace, while men's hearts failing them for fear (as foretold in Luke 21:26), and iniquity abounding (Matthew 24:12), match the proliferation of false prophets and false christs (Matthew 24:11,24), one of the natural symptoms of anti-realism, which pervades the globe like mist over an airport. Thus Israel is back as predicted for the end of the Age (Luke 21:24, Ezekiel 36ff., cf. cf. It Bubbles, It Howls, He Calls, Ch. 10, SMR Appendix A) and what a burdensome STONE is Jerusalem for the nations which try to determine its destiny, ignoring the word of God, as foretold in Zechariah 12, Ezekiel 36ff.. All this concurs in one.

Hence the world is misted in confusion. That of course makes it hard for aeroplanes to take off or land. It is bad for business; and when so much of the business in bad in nature, this has its points.
The world in its secular enthusiasms and humanistic fantasies, always ready to believe ANYTHING however lunatic
(Delusive Drift or Divine Dynamic Chs. 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, Wake Up World! Your Creator is Coming Chs. 4, 5, Spiritual Refreshings Chs. 13, 16),
which contravenes the truth, so long as God can be excluded, finds it is included in the results of its culpable clairvoyances. It finds that reality cannot be charmed away by vacuous philosophies or inane words, be they philosophic, political or religiously martial, the new 21st century line so like the old one of Islam and Romanism, not to say Communism, and covered with the blood of sinners, that never atones: for all but One have sinned. The works of Revelation 6 are being fulfilled to the last letter, and there is far worse to come (Revelation 8).
The salvation of God remains what it ALWAYS has been (Barbs, Arrows and Balms 17, TMR Chs. 2 - 3), and it will not budge. Christ was bludgeoned, but the word does not move. Christ was resurrected and the world finds Him inconvenient, as it continues to see how far the elastic can be stretched before it breaks. Naturally enough, it is fraying already. The time is nearly up for His return.
It is therefore time to reflect on the magnitude of His primary intervention. First He intervened in the creation of history in our sort of time at all, and it was creation. Then He intervened in the solution to our misuse of our type of freedom, and He died, and rose with death in tatters, unable to be enforced by the most potent coupling of political power and religious zeal you could wish, in Jerusalem and Rome in tandem, Pilate and Caiaphas and Co.. He was not available to be kept in a Lenin's tomb, but vacated the place and taught His disciples, leaving the Gospel to do the talking and His word by His Spirit, until the world, tried as He was tried, but this with justice, faces its final assizes, the judgment.
Here is your death, in effect He declared, Behold the man! Here is your salvation! He is not here, but He is risen, come and see! Have you seen ?
HERE is the only place for man left, in the man whom God has provided by sending, transmitting, His only begotten Son, the Word of eternity, the living word of God (Micah 5:1-3, John 1:1, Philippians 2, John 8:58, 17:1-3, Isaiah 48:16, 28:16, 11:1-11). There is only one God and it is He; the others are barren monstrosities worthy only of divine contempt (Psalm 82, Ezekiel 28:9). None on earth or in heaven is like Him (Psalm 89:6).
It is in this same Jesus Christ alone that atonement for sin is to be found, not in the murder of children. It is in this same Jesus Christ that safety is to be found, not in nuclear armaments or chanting wild frenzies, as in mass intoxicated riots. It is in this same Bible that God has spoken to man, available in its message for several millenia, never changing in its diagnosis and solution: it is there that truth is to be found. It is in Christ that it is available. Written for reading, living for redemption, alive forever, the word of God in its saving power is to be found in repentance (Luke 13:1-3) and redemption in the same place, Calvary, now as before (Romans 3:23-27). It was predicted from the first, it applies to the last (Galatians 6:14, Revelation 14:6)
If you do not want it, and do not repent of this, then you are a spiritual foundling, destined to be a spiritual orphan. Christ however said this: I will not leave you orphans! (John 14:18). If you want God, He is available; if you do not, judgment is available (John 3:17-19,36). It is time to call on the name of the Lord as in Acts 2 and 16, and to receive Him as in John 1:12, yes to believe as in Romans 10:9 that it is God who is competent, not man, God who has declared Himself, not man who contrives his cultural concoctions for his safety. Even a gaoler was set free (Acts 16), just as jihad murderers and bible assailants can be set free, yes and so may be freed all the other sinners who labour on the earth, without the peace of the God of creation, or the hope from the God of redemption. They will be if they receive Him who alone has the words of eternal life, and thus live forever.
Happy Easter! It is time to ensure that this is not all that is happy.
For the Christian, drink deep of the waters of dynamic, delightful life in Jesus Christ, for the finishing line is coming as in the Tour de France, with remarkable speed now that the final city parameters are in view!
Our love in Christ, and in His service by faith,
