My Rendition of John 14


This particular excerpt is the Prologue, in which I took a passage in the Bible and made a short entry-story out of it. This is not really what my story is about in the third book. Don’t get me wrong; it’s a Christian book and all about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our wonderful Father, YHVH. But it’s the third book from my series, Soul Savior, which takes place during the tribulation up until Jesus Christ comes riding in as a warrior on His white horse, ready to avenge the saints and whoop some devilish butt! We will not see Him here as the meek, servant Jesus that He was made out to be the first time He came; rather, we see Him as a God of war….as the Bible tells us He shall be in Revelation 19:11-13, below.

Soul Savior—Book Three

By Lyn Leahz

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

Revelation 19:11-13


Jerusalem—Approximately 4 B.C.

Judas Lebbaeus, surnamed Thaddaeus, had just finished asking Jesus why He had revealed Himself to the twelve, but not to the rest of the world. As Jesus answered Him accordingly, Judas intently listened, honing in on every word that proceeded from the Messiah’s mouth.

Jesus had just swallowed a bite of His bread and was about to take a drink from His cup when He earnestly gazed into Judas’ eyes. He admired the inquisitiveness of His disciples, for they were eager and willing to learn.

He held His cup close to His lips, and with philosophical consideration said, “Don’t be troubled, and never be afraid; because you shall never find peace in this world like the peace I am leaving with you, or like the peace that I have given you.”

Jesus took a drink and then set His cup down. He wiped His lips off while still staring at Judas who had tears in his eyes. He had never truly understood why people did the things they did, or why they were sometimes so easily emotional until He Himself walked the earth in a body of flesh. “Must you go Lord? It is not that I am afraid, Master; it is that I love you most of all!”

Jesus and Judas both stood up when Jesus opened His arms and embraced him, “I love you! If you love Me, you ought to rejoice because I am going home to the Father; for My Father is greater than I!” He leaned back and rested His hands on Judas’ shoulders while beaming into his face with depth and meaning.

Judas wiped the tears from his face and forced a smile, “Yes my Lord, I will be happy for you, and I am; but the fact that I shall miss you remains!”

Jesus laid His hand gently against Judas’ cheek as He slowly swept His thumb back and forth, “Judas, My child, you have no need to miss Me.” He affectionately trailed His hand down to Judas’ chest and then abruptly stopped over-top his heart, “because My Spirit shall forever be right here.”

Judas eagerly reached up and grabbed Jesus’ hand, crying tears of joy, “Thank You Jesus! Thank You my Savior!” he covered the top of Jesus’ hand with tears and kisses.

They embraced once again when Jesus stepped back and held His hand beneath his chin. Judas could sense something unusual in his Savior’s eyes; something direct, stern, and most serious. The rest of His disciples gathered around the table in view of them noticed as well. “I say to you again, Judas; peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you!”

He squatted down so He could examine everyone’s faces. They were all lying on their sides, reclining at the table, when He zealously slammed His fist against it. Their faces went blank, unsure what to expect. His eyes scanned back and forth at each of them as He addressed them resolutely, “You have no idea how precious this peace I am leaving with you is! There shall come a day when the people who belong to the world will seek peace, but they won’t find it because they have searched in all the wrong places—yet I gave it to you first! For you did not search, nor did you labor to find it, you only believed that I AM the Son of God, and so it was freely given.”

Judas was still standing, not sure whether to sit back down, or wait.

Jesus stood back up, turning once again toward Judas. He paused, gazing even deeper into his eyes, His expression more grave. With His lips, He smiled, though His eyes told a much different story. “Take hold of My peace and bury it deep within your heart, My son. For I come in peace and humility—this time! Behold! When I return, I shall exercise my supremacy with a vengeance as I make war! For the next time the world sees My face, they will curse the day of their birth!”

Judas stared at Him blankly, goose-flesh covering his entire body. His voice quivered, “What do You mean, Master?”

Jesus consoled him, “This shall not yet be for many generations! But, a day is coming when the world will turn far more evil than even Sodom and Gomorrah at its worst! Satan shall be given authority, and humanity most wicked, as they bow at his feet and worship him!”

Judas’ mouth dropped open in disbelief, “This is most awful, my Lord! I cannot fathom anyone doing such an outrageous thing!”

Jesus smiled, “Unfortunately, Judas, it will be far worse than what I could ever convey to you in words. After God has poured out His wrath on every person who proclaims Lucifer their Lord, and willingly receives his mark–this is when I shall come as a mighty warrior dressed for battle!”

He held out His cup, as if to toast, smiling, “And when this happens, the blood of those who have died for My name’s sake shall finally be avenged!”

  1. Beautiful. Is it time! I believe so.

  2. I thought the passage very well thought out and penned through an obvious talent Lyn but I always have reservations when it concerns the ‘rewriting’ of Scripture. I know your intentions are not to do that of course but to present Scripture as you see it in your own heart with some journalistic licence. For myself, and I can only write what is on my heart and no-one else’s, I would rather read Scripture and let let The Holy Spirit guide my thoughts on what I read there.

    • Thanks Shirley Anne, but then no one would ever be able to write Biblical based novels, including Tim Lahaye, or anyone else. Nor would anyone be able to make movies about the Bible. I haven’t titled it “Holy Bible” Now, if I put the title Holy Bible on my book, then I’m in trouble. But I’m not claiming that my book is the Holy Bibie, just a book that the Holy Spirit wrote through me. Infact, many Christian authors who even write informational books, like Max Lucado add humor to things in the Bible as they tell their stories; preachers tell the Bible stories with their own added stuff. Also, the Lord directed me on the writing of this book, so I only wrote as He told me. I never had a plan whenever I’d sit down to write; I’d listen to the voice of the Lord. This, by the way, is the prologue of book three.

      • ‘ but then no one would ever be able to write Biblical based novels, including Tim Lahaye, or anyone else. Nor would anyone be able to make movies about the Bible.’…………….and? Why do we need to have these things?

        • Personally, Shirley Anne, I see nothing wrong with writing stories about the Bible, as long as one is not changing the meaning of what has been written in the Bible and as long as the person is not claiming it to be the Bible. I have not claimed that my books are the Bible. If you feel uncomfortable, then this is fine, don’t ever do it. The Holy Spirit led me to write these books, so to not have done it would have been disobedience. They are made up stories based on the tribulation period. The first book is before that. But they are based on the Bible. I am very strict on things, and don’t even watch any television, to be honest. I watch Christian videos and things like that. I read Christian blogs and Christian books, and I read/study/meditate on the Word of God. I pray all throughout the day, every day. I try to walk very closely with the Lord. I’m certain if there was something wrong with this, God for one wouldn’t have led me to write them, for I can’t write three books of 500+ pages in length in 3 months flat…impossible for me. Secondly, I would feel conviction in my spirit. The day I go around claiming I’m Jesus or God and put the word Holy Bible on the front of the book, or change the overall meaning of a passage is the day I will be in some trouble. But I am not guilty of these things. I am very sorry that you feel this way. If anything I write offends you, I would encourage you to not read it because I don’t want you personally to feel greived or offended. However, I will not stop posting it or writing it; I write and I post as the Lord leads me, and I must do as He commands me. I listen to what people say and pray about it, but if I did everything everyone told me to do, and took in every opinion, I would be running around in circles like a dog chasing his tail, and the Lord wouldn’t have me to do that. He’d have me seek counsel with Him and do what He says. These books have been highly prayed over by me and others, and I feel only His Holy Spirit. Thank you.

          • Whoa….slow down there Lyn, no-one is criticising what you do. You say you were Spirit led in writing so you follow your heart. I could say that I am Spirit led in my comment for just in the same way the words are on the paper so to speak before I realise it. I am burdened to write what I do in the same way as you are. We could argue the point but what would be the point. All I asked was why do people think they need alternative literature to The Bible? Personally speaking once again, I think we should be encouraging people to read Scripture more rather than stories based on it. I am not offended by what you write as you seem to think. If I didn’t read what you have written I could not write a comment. If you post things on line you have to accept comment from others but don’t take issue because they may have a different perspective.

          • Good morning Shirley Anne, I’m not really upset, to be honest. We just share a different opinion on something, and that’s okay. If you feel the Holy Spirit is speaking to you, that is wonderful, and I encourage you to always follow the voice of the Holy Spirit. God bless you and have a beautiful day in Him.

        • Shirley Anne, Children these days love seeing movies. If they are seeing a Bibles based video, isn’t that better than nothing? No all parents are going to read to their chldren and fewer will read them the Bible. I see no harm in writing in basing anything on the word of God.

  3. WOW! This is awesome. I know it borders a bit on fiction, but this is much like I’ve always imagined it went down.

    • All three of the books are fiction…but based on truth. This is just the prologue of Book One. The story actually takes place with modern day characters. I must warn everyone, there is some gore in them to an extent. It was necessary in certain parts of the books with the evil going on and the persecutions of God’s people. However, I can promise you that once you read them, you’ll never be the same. The books radiate repentance, humility, love your enemies, and take God more seriously. Check out blurbs from my upcoming trilogy if you enjoyed that and let me know what you think. I don’t want praise..I want to know if they moved you in Him. They’re going to bring the unrepentant to repentance and the unbeleiver to Jesus.

  4. I’m glad you shared this, Lyn. I enjoyed it. 🙂

    • Thanks Wayne..I originally posted this excerpt from one of the books God wrote through me Sorry, I always feel bad if I say MY books..even though I do sometimes not thinking…they’re His..anyway, I posted it some time ago, but I didn’t have any followers really, so no one saw it. Love ya, Wayne, in Him!

  5. Reblogged this on Lyn Leahz and commented:

    Just wanted to reblog this because when I originally posted it, I don’t think I had all of you following me yet. I post it not to do with myself, but to do with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I hope it blesses you!

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
