From the back Cover:

The Bible is an epic story of revolution…

It tells of the liberation of an enslaved people. It is the tale of a hero who emerges to face the fury of an army of supernatural beings. The victory depends on  the willingness of the slaves to become allies with their Creator.


Or are each of us caught up in an invisible war that broke out in another dimension? A war that, even now, is being fought across the battlefield of time and space. The prize? A seamless creation; a multi-dimensional universe no longer divided, but brought together—everything in time and eternity submitted to  one ruler, a hero called “The Seed.”

Sword of Submission uncovers the story of a rebel army defeated in the eternal realm, and of the liberation of a race once captive in time and space. In the end, it is the story of a joyous victory won because of the most powerful weapon in the universe…

Audio Book Episode

So, the warfare of the universe plays out. On one side the Creator plans and executes a fitting response to the rebellion; the loyal elohim await specific instructions even as they yearn for the full revelation of what human beings were to eventually become and for an understanding of their own complimentary role with them. The humans quietly, instinctively long for the wholeness that was lost in the garden.

Meanwhile, the rebels are continuing to press their assault on creation. The battle for dominance,, including time/space and the race that lives there, is to be fought on two fronts. One is purely an offensive, aimed at assimilating these unfamiliar time/space beings. The other is preemptive, an effort to circumvent the Creator’s plan to ultimately destroy the rebellion…

Plan B

[The forces of darkness] had underestimated the power of the Creator again, not knowing that He had made a place for Himself in the time/space world at the moment He had created it. He had created the earth from the inside out.

The voice of The Seed roars across the eternal sky. “Hear this, disobedient spirits! You are banished! The door into the world of the time-creatures is closed to you…” Two fearsome beings—cherubim—come forward to guard the gateway.

Mission Not So Impossible

At last, the battle lines are drawn. The playing field has been leveled. The time-race is temporarily stripped of access to the eternal realm and prohibited from experiencing the power of union. The elohim are barred from the spatial world and confined to a region that has only one thing left in common with the earthly dimension, time. The two races are now locked in battle. The outcome will mean the ultimate destruction of all of the rebel elohim and a significant number of the time-creatures who embrace their rebellion; but most excitingly, it will result in the bringing together of all things in heaven and on earth a condition that has not been seen since the rebellion in the garden.

Who’s Holding the Rope?

Domination and passivity have nothing to do with submission. In fact, they are exactly NOT what subjection is about. They are opposed to the central feature of the human character that is distinctly in His image: the ability to choose—more than that, the requirement to choose.

Perfume on the Latch

Even now the Creator is preparing an army of time-creatures, a human army, to bring an end to the elohim insurgency. He has put the responsibility for training in the hands of The Seed, Jesus. He is a combat veteran, a living lesson who has fought in the trenches facing and defeating death. He demonstrated by example the secret of a fully responsive spirit. He is skilled in the use of submission, the weaponry of this war.

An Apparent Need for Parents

Jesus, the submitted son, was a careful observer of the Father, and a faithful imitator. That is a picture of wisdom. Paul calls Jesus “God’s mystery…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Just as wisdom is personified in the 8th chapter of Proverbs, Jesus’ example of subjection to the Father becomes the living embodiment of wisdom and wise behavior in the New Testament.

My Master, My Mentor

Christ as a son, demonstrated how to act like the Father, but Christ, the servant, teaches how to act on behalf of the Father. The child’s role draws life from simply being—we are children. The servant, on the other hand, learns to defer his own purposes to those of another. The will of the master is the duty of the slave.

Lord, Pierce My Ear

As bondslaves we have something very important to lay before the Master: our freedom. To walk again in a fully responsive relationship with Him as we were designed —this is God’s definition of “liberty”—we have to be willing to walk in submission, understanding the will of God and choosing it.
