Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule and More (Part Nine)—‘Leaving the Reservation,’ Because There is Only So Much Evil One Can Tolerate

Sorry I have not posted here since July 12, and it is already August! But when family members come out to visit and you have to go to El Paso for eye exams and you develop nasal issues with a deviated septum and it takes a week or so to get back to normal…

This snippet post concerns Part Two of The Murder Rule, where lead character Bobby Jones has a decision to make regarding his mid-level membership in the New Age and (satanic) Corion-worshiping cult founded by the evil Swami Negran, the Church of the Circle of Unity. He had also been a member of a Christian church in the fictitious Bay Area city of Richmont led by a pastor, Ike Lawson, who tried to get the prodigal band Sound Unltd—Bobby was a temporary roadie for them in 1993—banned from the USA. When Lawson refused to consider the possibility that even the ‘devil worshiping’ Sound Unltd could accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (which they did, in 2001), which Bobby had brought up with Lawson, Bobby then left that church for good. Then he committed to the Richmont Circle of Unity church led by the evil Cole Blessing (the main ‘bad guy’ in the trilogy second novel, The Prophesied Band), became mid-level, level twenty, and mentored young initiates, including one named ‘Cordian,’ who would bully Bobby in ‘initiation sessions’ that Bobby led.

But on the night of May 1, 1996, an event happened that Bobby witnessed which traumatized him far more than any bully could! It happened in the basement of Cole Blessing’s new St. Xenos ‘church’ palatial estate. Being level twenty, Bobby was forced to watch the event (as did ‘Cordian’ and others). Also mentioned in this snippet is the main bad guy in the third trilogy novel, The Prodigal Band, Mark Besst, a tech oligarch who became inhabited by the satanic Corion. The snippet is below, copyright © 2022 by Deborah Lagarde.

May 1, 1996, at a Cole Blessing sacrifice ritual to Corion

This took place at Cole Blessing’s new ‘center’ for the Church of the Circle of Unity, called the St. Xenos Ashram that Negran had built a couple of years ago. With Swami’s supposed death by car crash, Blessing now headed the church and ran the entire cult from this Ashram, which was made up of four buildings: Blessing’s thirty-thousand-foot palace, which included a ballroom, apartments for his most important members and adepts, and a series of tunnels with hidden rooms; the tunnels led to three other buildings, including one marked ‘A’ for Ashram.

Thirteen high-level ‘adepts’ in black hooded robes, led by Blessing at the head, surrounded a rock altar where the sacrifice would take place. I and at least fifty level twenty ‘future adepts’ surrounded the adepts.

The adepts chanted something sounding like gibberish, then, through a side door that could not be seen since the room was dark except for a few candles held by new adepts, came one adept in a red robe that willingly laid on the altar facing Blessing—this adept was the sacrifice! Willingly!

Waiting for the sword held by Blessing to impale him, he ‘prayed’ to Corion. “God of light born in darkness, my lord Corion, take me. I am yours, and will be with you in the light within your crystal for eternity. Corion, Corion, Novordopax Tricameron.”

As the others chanted, Blessing raised his sword and impaled the adept’s chest. The other adepts and most of the level twenty folks surrounding me ‘sang’ what sounded like some New Age ‘Oooooommmm’ chant.

Me? I said nothing, chanted nothing, too horrified by the experience. When I left the room with the others, I stared ahead expressionless, as if in a trance. Traumatized.

The following day I made my plan to leave this evil cult that I had believed was enlightened, led by a healer who also ran something called ‘the Eternal Life Institute’ in eastern Florida—Cole Blessing, who had the title of ‘MD’ but was a fake, as his cult was fake.

Glad I ‘ran into’ Mark Besst as I was leaving the Ashram area.

“Hey, Mark,” I said to him, “I have to go back to visit my parents in Dallas. Dad’s birthday is coming up and I haven’t seen my folks in a few years.”

“Fine with me, Bobby. Let me know when you are going to return to Richmont. After all, you will have initiates to tend to.”

Besst smiled, and then he asked me, “What did you think of the sacrifice last night?”

“Oh yeah,” I jerked my head, “that. Interesting.” Looked straight at Besst. “So now that adept is in heaven so-to-speak with our lord?”

“Hmmm. Heaven, yes—so to speak.” Slight laugh. “Which is where you and I shall be if we continue to commit to the god of light born in darkness, our lord Corion.”

Then Besst showed his red crystal from under his shirt. “But you won’t get to be with our lord unless you fully commit, Bobby, reach level thirty-three or higher, and receive from Cole Blessing one of these crystals.”

All I could say to that was this: “I’ll have to remember that. Thanks.”

“You’re welcome. See you in a few weeks, Bobby.”

I never saw Mark Besst again.

But I would see ‘Cordian’ and others that he or Blessing would send out to get me back into the cult. Or use as a sacrifice to Corion as punishment for leaving.

Further, I did not return to my parents like I said I would.

Nor did I return to my apartment in Richmont other than to collect clothing and other things I would need, putting them in a used van I had just purchased.

For I was heading to the high Sierras. For someone that attended Lawson’s church at the same time I did, had hired me to help him build his small wood house outside the Bay Area.

Pointing to the incomplete lumbered structure a few yards away as we ate sandwiches during a lunch break, my employer then faced me.

“This will be my refuge, Bobby, when we head into the End Times and Richmont goes crazy.”

“The End Times? Didn’t Pastor Lawson say we’d be ‘raptured’ or something?”

“Yeah, but Richmont will likely go crazy before that happens. And maybe, Bobby, you should consider buying your own redoubt if you know what I mean.”

That job, where I learned some house-building skills, would in fact turn out to be a form of ‘divine intervention.’ I knew at some point some cult members, on Blessing’s or Besst’s orders, would ‘persuade’ me to rejoin that evil Circle of Unity, which was no different than other evil cults, especially religious ones.

It took a few years, but in July, 2001, I knew I had made the right decision, moving to the high Sierras.

The rest of Part Two of The Murder Rule should be completed by the end of August, and then comes Part Three (and maybe a Part Four) which should ‘seal the deal’ regarding The Murder Rule for those that ‘leave the reservation’ if you know what I mean.

Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule and More (Part Eight)-The Mindset of the Elites’ Desire to Murder, Using Abortion or Otherwise, ‘Inferior’ Humans.

Part of what the Davos Crowd ‘Great Reset’ plan for 2030 and beyond has to do with population reduction and eugenics. The now-destroyed ‘Georgia Guidestones’ mentioned reducing the world’s population to half-a-million people. Do the research and figure this scenario out for yourself, as it has been in the works for a long time. Their ‘god,’ Satan aka Lucifer, requires blood after all…as do many of the elites—modern-day Count Draculas.

This post was inspired by the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn the fetal abortion ‘law’ in the case of Roe vs. Wade in 1973. And I am staunchly anti-abortion myself, for abortion is murder, as I have always believed, with the sole exception of having an abortion strictly to save the life of the mother, with the mother’s say-so in that decision (knowing that in the Bible Book of Genesis, Rachel, the wife of Jacob, died when her final son, Benjamin, was being birthed). Further, isn’t it a bit hypocritical to allow ‘my body, my choice’ regarding abortions—as well as ‘gender fluid’ changes and sexual orientation—but not allowing choice by forcing the wearing ‘covid’ masks, forcing one to get ‘covid’ ‘vaccines,’ or forcing one to get various ‘licenses’ to drive, work, forcing taxation, etc.? That is, if one can get an abortion, shouldn’t one also be allowed to practice the ‘right to travel’ enumerated in the Bill of Rights (technically, anyway, since cars weren’t around in the 1780s), or work without a ‘license’ or ‘certificate’? But that is what happens when governments elected by the voters become utterly corrupted…because ultimately these days, governments are run by their ‘donors’ so to speak—the banksters, oligarchs, royal families, and others ‘above the law.’ And who runs these folks I just mentioned? Why, Satan, of course (Ephesians 6:12, the ‘principalities and powers…wickedness in high places.’)

Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Seven)—Reaching the Climax

In these final snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule I will post ‘the pre-climax’ so to speak, not revealing the name of the killer of rocker Denny Spradlin in early February, 1996. But this killer did know the man Denholm spoke with in the second snippet, a former rap superstar and record mogul himself, now living in fear for his life should he expose the true killer of Spradlin, among other reasons, such as betraying his oath to ‘the Order’ that Spradlin also betrayed and who suffered murder over it.

Denholm knew that this rap star named ‘Drakk’ was also in hiding, but did not know where. But he figured Drakk’s lawyer in the record label lawsuit that Drakk had lost, because the other side had threatened and bribed the judge to make sure Drakk’s side lost, would know where Drakk was. The lawyer’s name was Wilmont. Denholm made an appointment with Wilmont to find out where Drakk was.

The first snippet is below, and both snippets are copyright © 2022 Deborah Lagarde. The time frame is June, 2005.

Even Members of the Evil Elites Can Repent and Receive Salvation: If One of My Most Evil Fictional Characters Can Do It…

Folks, either I am going to write novels about why folks should at least consider accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (because no one should be forced to do so), or write novels exposing the evil in this world, a world ruled by ‘principalities and powers’ and ‘wickedness in high places’ (Ephesians 6:12). The Prodigal Band Trilogy is about a fictitious rock band that after serving evil, repents, and accepts Christ as Lord and Savior—but it also exposes the evil in this world. The novel I am working on now, The Murder Rule, while mentioning main characters that did in fact accept Christ as Lord and Savior, is primarily about exposing evil, and not just in the music industry. Part One is nearly complete and will be finished likely before the end of June, 2022. Part Two is more than half finished. Part Three (and possibly a Part Four), that will also feature important characters from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, will go much further in exposing evil.

The snippet post below, from Chapter Sixteen of The Prodigal Band, features one of the trilogy’s most evil characters who is nearing death, Baron Torquay-Lambourgeau, head of several secret societies serving the satanic character Corion, as well as leading world-wide banker and one of the richest men on Earth. What happened to this man nearing death was miraculous, and I will not provide a ‘spoiler alert.’ But what happened was inspired by the FACT that not all members of the elites are evil, and, in FACT, a few have actually repented and accepted Christ as Lord and Savior.

Snippets-to-Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Six)–The Plot Thickens

Hopefully, by mid-June, Part One of The Murder Rule will be completed (and then comes the editing part). It is mostly completed already. Part Two, featuring roadie Bobby Jones, is mostly completed but I need to manuscript the climax and leading up to the climax. Then comes Part Three and maybe, Part Four. The plan is to complete the entire novel, The Murder Rule, before the end of 2022.

This post is the one that leads up to the climax of Part One of The Murder Rule, where narrator and pop-culture pundit Lloyd Denholm begins to come to the conclusion through investigations as to who murdered fictitious rock star Denny Spradlin in early 1996.

Spradlin’s band mate Blake Fenmore has requested of the pop culture magazine X-Zine to have pundit and free-lancer Denholm to find out ‘who done it’ and how. The request was made in Spring, 2005. In this snippet, Denholm meets with Blake at his rock house in the Lake District of northwest England. Below is the snippet, copyright © 2022 by Deborah Lagarde:

An Introduction to “Talent for a Mission—A Guide for Christian Authors”

Back in early January 2022, I put up a post here, mentioning a ‘New Years Resolution’ Christian authors might consider, especially authors of fiction, about using the writing talent God gave them to help ‘make disciples of all nations,’ a task Christ Himself assigned to His disciples upon their witnessing that He had risen from the dead (Matthew 28:19). The ‘guide’ is pretty much completed and will likely be uploaded to this site later this year as a FREE PDF for download. Hopefully, it will inspire Christian authors to follow that task! Below is a snippet of the first couple of pages, though I left out a few paragraphs relating to peoples who likely have not ‘heard the Word’ yet, but will at some point, as prophesy claims that before ‘the end’ comes, all peoples will be given the opportunity to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. Below is the snippet:

Snippets-to-Spinoffs (Part Five): The Murder Rule Part One Meets Part Two

When novels are divided into parts or sequels or series, there always have to be connections from one part to another part, or the next part, or the sequel, or series or trilogy novels. And there must be connections to any novels of which they are ‘spun-off.’

The previous post entitled Proof that my new novel, The Murder Rule, is derived from my Prodigal Band Trilogy (Episode One), shows how the new novel is based on the trilogy. In this post, using characters that narrate Parts One and Two of The Murder Rule, there, too, are references to parts of The Prodigal Band Trilogy. The narrator of Part One of The Murder Rule is pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm, who is the narrator of The Prodigal Band, and the narrator of Part Two is Bobby Jones, a prodigal band roadie minor character of both Battle of the Band and The Prodigal Band. Within a chapter for Part One of The Murder Rule, Bobby meets with Lloyd at Denholm’s apartment in the fictitious city of Richmont, California, in 2002, so he can reveal what he learned about the ‘suicided’ and murdered rocker, Denny Spradlin, that proves Denny was indeed murdered. The proof comes to Bobby from a prominent support character working for ‘the Good,’ the so-called ‘witch,’ Morwenna, who, along with God’s angels, the Tooters, guides the prodigal band Sound Unltd in their ‘missions of God.’ And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year. Below is the snippet:

Proof That My New Novel, The Murder Rule, is Derived from My Prodigal Band Trilogy, Episode One

In Part One of a three-or-four-or more part new novel that will likely be titled The Murder Rule is featured the ‘suicide,’ which is actually a murder, of a minor character within the first trilogy novel, Battle of the Band, a rocker and friend of the prodigal band, named Denny Spradlin, front man of another Brit band called Wolfin. As with some of the prodigal band members, he is also a drug addict but is trying to end that addiction and find some meaning in his real non-celebrity life. He is also trying to leave behind the evil agenda within the music industry he knows he helped bring about.

In order to claim The Murder Rule is derived or ‘spun-off’ from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, parts of the trilogy had to come into focus while writing the manuscript for the new novel. In a couple of days, I managed to write two whole chapters that feature both the narrator or Battle of the Band as well as The Prophesied Band, pop culture pundit Jay Elliot, and the narrator of The Prodigal Band as well as The Murder Rule, pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm. Lloyd, a Brit, moved to the fictitious California coastal city called Richmont, where Elliot also lived, so that the two could work on a pop culture magazine project about the history of rock music into the 90s and 2000s. But the topic of Spradlin’s demise kept cropping up in conversations between the two, due to the fact that various other rock stars of that time had also died or nearly died, rockers Elliot knew because these rockers tended to confide in him. Due to what Elliot had been told by some members of the prodigal band Sound Unltd and others, both came to the conclusion that murder, not suicide, caused Denny Spradlin’s death.

Two or more snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule will be featured in the coming weeks; right now, I will post a snippet from Part One of The Murder Rule to begin this series. I will not list the Chapter this comes from since I might change the arrangement of chapters and manuscript prior to publication later. And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year.

When Snippets Become Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule, and More (Part Four)

This snippet post continues from the previous Murder Rule snippet post featuring the beginning of Part Two of a new novel I am working on tentatively titled The Murder Rule. Part Two concentrates on a minor character from both Battle of the Band and The Prodigal Band, prodigal band follower and part-time roadie, Bobby Jones, who later helps the band carry out their ‘missions of God’ by giving them a song he wrote about Christ.

But as with the prodigal band Sound Unltd, Bobby is caught up in the occult, drugs and the party lifestyle, which is how he got connected to the band in the first place: as a part-time roadie. This snippet (© Deborah Lagarde) explains how he got into the ‘roadie’ ‘job’ in the first place, with a fictitious top American band.

Snippet Links: The Prodigal Band Meets the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15)

I cannot overstate the importance of my The Prodigal Band Trilogy being based and inspired by the Parable of the Prodigal Son featured in the New Testament Gospel of Luke in Chapter 15.  Since one has to scroll through the various pages of this site’s home page (because the “sticky-ness” of the page only lasts so long while new posts are published every week or two), I am posting the links to the four ‘Prodigal Son Meets Prodigal Band‘ snippet posts in this new post. One can also find links to these posts by clicking on the Menu item Links to All Snippet Posts, above. Here are the links, with short summary:

Prodigal Son Meets the Prodigal Band Part One, where the prodigal band, as with the Prodigal Son, wastes their talents their Father gave them on empty lives, drugs, booze, etc., to where they find themselves in a series of crises.

Prodigal Son Meets the Prodigal Band Part Two, where the prodigal band members begin to work their ways out of crises and seek a saving path back to their Father, learning the truth of what they are trying to overcome–evil.

Prodigal Son Meets the Prodigal Band Part Three, where, given ‘missions of God,’ they realize that before the can do these ‘missions’ they vowed to do, they had to do ‘missions’ on themselves!

Prodigal Son Meets the Prodigal Band Part Four, where, as the six members of the prodigal band carry out their missions, there is doubt among believers that the band members really are carrying out the missions, so a Scottish minister reminds the world-wide flock that even former ‘devil worshipers’ that become saved by grace through faith can do their missions just fine regardless of their ‘evil’ pasts! Heck, if Mary Magdeline, a prostitute possessed by demons could do it…
