"Seventh Dimension - The Prescience," Book Review by Donna Ford with The US Review of Books


Seventh Dimension - The Prescience: A Young Adult Fantasy 
by Lorilyn Roberts
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform




"Time travel is more dangerous...The chasm between the physical world and spiritual realm is becoming unstable, as Satan and his minions gain more control."
Daniel and Shale were betrothed by Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew) at the end of the previous book in the series. When they return to the present dimension in Israel, they encounter bombings and danger as the Gog-Magog war begins. They run to a bomb shelter, where a rescue dog finds Shale who can speak to animals. Everyone has their unique gifts of service; Shale has the gift of hearing, and Daniel has the gift of reading minds. Dodging bombs to follow the dog, they discover a young child with her mother dead beside her. The dog reveals her name is Shira, and she has no living relatives. That’s how the newly-engaged couple becomes parents of a three-year-old in the middle of a war predicted in the Bible.


Shale tries to call her mother in America, but the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack by Korea has disrupted all communication there. It may be safer to continue their search for Daniel’s father in the first century, back where Daniel first met Shale and raced his chariot against other time travelers. Time travel is accomplished via star-gates opened by CERN and are either controlled by good or evil forces. The Illuminati sent Nidal and Tariq, mercenaries from the future, to first-century Jerusalem in order to steal Bible scrolls telling of Yeshua’s life, death, and resurrection. The Illuminati can track their movement by a skin implant thus assuring they remove every record of Yeshua’s existence. Daniel’s brother, Jacob, has access to a government star-gate. Demons try to stop their travel, but an angel delivers Daniel, Shale, and Shira back to the first century. They may not be safe yet. The ventriloquist tries to steal Shira. And what if those who wished to arrest them find out Daniel will race against Tariq’s chariot once more in order to learn the truth about his father?

This novel, the fifth book in the series, combines young adult fantasy with historical fiction. It is written about the times near the end of what Bible scholars call the seven-year tribulation. Previous books in the series covered the first century when Yeshua was on earth. The author uses the cliffhanger technique at the close of each book, and the casual reader who has not read the previous books should thoroughly read the first chapters of this one to help make sense of what is happening.

Teen and young adult readers want to see a life they haven’t seen before. What better vehicle to introduce Biblical events than through time travel? There is also movement between the present dimension and the seventh, or Spiritual, dimension. The Prescience is the title of a book from God’s library in the Genesis garden; it reveals Biblical events to those who love and serve God. Reading in it, Daniel sees his future as one of the 144,000 young Jewish preachers who will testify to Israel about Yeshua. Daniel has the seal on his forehead to prove it.

Life lessons mix with the buzzwords. Daniel explains to Shale that people can have many futures. When she requested to marry Daniel, her future was changed because she missed the rapture and is now alive during the tribulation. Another learning experience happens when the couple leaves the garden by train. As it begins to fill up, Shale hears the occupants bleating as sheep and goats. She imagines seeing the car floor dirty with excrement and urine until she experiences compassion enough to see them as people too. It is a test all must pass who wish to be compassionate.

Support Trump? Then You Need To See This, EVERYTHING Is NOW At Stake…





I am extremely concerned about the role the American media is playing in the political arena. I fully expect this video to be deleted at some point in the future from Youtube, so I'm going to describe it. 

Basically, Lisa Haven is giving clips on the backlash against Trump, and it's crossed the line, folks. I believe a Civil War is coming to America. The liberals cannot accept the fact Trump won the election. 

We are a nation of laws. If this continues - the proclivity to violence and the attempt to undermine our President's authority - can our democracy survive? 

As I continue to work on my book, Seventh Dimension - The Howling, I came across this passage from Revelation 13:4-7:  

So they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

I've worked as a broadcast captioner for about twenty years, and before that as a court reporter for twenty years. The last forty years of my life I have been paid to write down the spoken word, to put those words onto the written page. Let me tell you, when Revelation says, "He [Antichrist] was given a mouth," that means he was given a platform, he was given a microphone, he was given a captive audience, to get out his word. 

The media gives people a mouthpiece so their voice can be heard. You've heard the expression, "fifteen minutes of fame." 

The Antichrist will have all the fame he needs because the media will give it to him. They will be his mouthpiece. They will be his voice. They will be his captive audience. Revelation 13:4-7 as quoted above tells us so.

For anyone who thinks Trump is the Antichrist, think again. He's too hated to be the Antichrist. The Antichrist will be loved by the media. He will be given a voice through their microphones, their pens, their websites, their blogs, their editorials - on TV, on the Internet, on Twitter, on Facebook, famous celebs and occultists. I don't need to tell you who they are. 

If you are a liberal bashing Trump, please stop. Think before you speak. He is our President. Do you want his presidency to succeed? Or do you want it to fail? If he fails, our country fails. 

Are you a true American? If you are, then support him. Stand by him. If you can't do that, then be silent and vote him out of office in the next election. 

Satan wants to cause division and strife in our country. His greatest weapon is deception. If he can use the media to present a partial truth, he'll do it, and, in the process, destroy the uninformed masses, those who don't question what they hear and don't know what's really going on. Don't be part of that. Satan is setting the stage for a future world leader who will be the Antichrist. He will use the media as his mouthpiece. 

Trump wants to make America great again. That goes against the New World Order and the agenda set by those who are bent on world domination and globalization. Don't fall for it. The only one who can rule this world effectively is Jesus Christ. 

Don't give the devil a voice. Question what you hear in the American news. And that includes the immigration issue. What you hear has been twisted to use children as human shields and evoke sympathy from those who don't realize the truth. 


Many of those children are being brought over for nefarious purposes by people who are not their parents. How many caring parents would risk their children's safety by entering a country illegally? Many of those children are being trafficked. 

The children need our prayers. They are the victims. One solution is rather simple:  Perform a genetic test to see if the children and the parents' DNA match. It takes less than twenty-four to get the results. Those that don't match have no business being here. And maybe those children really do need to be separated from those "potential predators."

Unfortunately, there is a bigger issue involved here, and it goes back to Trump. The media, the left, the elitists, and the New World Order are using this tragic situation to put forth their own agenda, one of which is to destroy Trump's presidency. I could say more, but my point is for you, the reader, to think. Don't take my word for it. Remember, II Thessalonians 2:11: For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie

Again, I say, question. Don't believe it's true just because the media says it's so. Don't fall for the lie. Be a thinker. Question more.

100 Plus Chances to Win a $50 Amazon Gift Card




One of the things I have been doing recently for marketing in addition to building my email list is I'm trying to build my BookBub followers. Try as I might, I have not been able to get BookBub to feature any of my books for a long time. 

I tell myself, it's because God wants all the glory for Himself. If I ever reach any modicum of success, it will be because He made it happen, not because of BookBub. They are the premiere site for book promotion with a huge reach for indy authors as well as traditional authors.

So, I am involved in this multi-author promotion where you can win a $50 Amazon gift card, and all you have to do is follow a few authors on BookBub, like me, who are trying to do the same thing I am. I think you need to set up an account on BookBub if you don't have one, but if you are a reader it's worth the easy sign-up. Each day they offer high-quality books for free and at greatly discounted prices.

The reason why authors want a thousand readers following them on BookBub is that when an author launches a new book, BookBub will send an email to the author's BookBub followers as a promotion for a new release.

If you don't want to take the time to enter the drawing but would like to follow me anyway, you can go to my page on BookBub at 

https://www.bookbub.com/profile/lorilyn-roberts.  

I have 302 followers, so I have a long ways to go to hit a thousand. The follow button is at the top right-hand corner.

To participate in the drawing with a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card, go to https://authorsxp.com/readers/gc

In the meantime, I continue to work on the next book in the Seventh Dimension Series, The Howling.  It has an unusual plot that's taken an enormous amount of research, but I hope to begin writing soon.

Seventh Dimension - The Prescience - FREE Today and Tomorrow on Amazon - Memorial Day Weekend






Seventh Dimension - The Prescience: A Young Adult Fantasy by Lorilyn Roberts is the fifth book in the Seventh Dimension series that take on time travel. Daniel and Shale, a recently engaged (betrothed) couple, found a lost orphan girl in Jerusalem and try to save her from the devastated city. From there, they embark on God’s plan and return to the first century and search for Daniel’s father who has gone missing. Finding his father could be the first step in unraveling the mystery of a tragedy that is waiting to happen. However, it is proving to be more dangerous and difficult than both of them ever thought. There are far too many enemies and dangers awaiting them, and all they can do is fight them together. But can they? 



With religious themes mixed with coming of age, the novel is definitely very different and the author seems to be in her element here. I enjoyed the time travel, how the two main characters fought the odds together and came out victorious at the end. Although I have not read the previous novels in the series, I still enjoyed it and caught up with the story really quickly. The story was and entertaining. Right from the beginning, the story gripped my attention. The chemistry between Shale and Daniel was perfect; they respected each other with an intensity and worked together as a team. The element of time travel was spot on; the author ensured that the characters, the dialogues even the environment were time appropriate. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the novel! A really entertaining coming of age story.

Being a Mother Reminds Me of the Trinity







Being a mother reminds me of the Trinity. I could never be a mother without a child to love. In the same way, God could never display His unconditional love unless He was in fellowship with the Son. Only through sacrificial love could God's ultimate Glory be revealed, and that required a relationship with His Beloved Son. And now we are all His Adopted Sons and Daughters through the Holy Spirit. Three in One.
Without children, much of God's love would have dried up in my heart, never to be shared. How much less God's Glory would have been appreciated by me. My daughters would never have known God's love through a young woman, abandoned and rejected, too young to be left childless, too full of promise to be left without Hope, and too hopeful to be left without Joy.

Thank goodness God uses flawed, imperfect human beings

I hate to think how empty my life would have been without my two beautiful daughters. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you, friends and family, who prayed for me every step of the way to Nepal and Vietnam. And I thank our Heavenly Father for adopting us into His Forever Family. Eternity awaits.

The Fool Says In His Heart, There Is No God

The fool has said in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt,
They have done abominable works,
There is none who does good.

The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God,
They have all turned aside,
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.

Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,
Who set up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call on the Lord?
There they are in great fear,
For God is with the generation of the righteous.
You shame the counsel of the poor,
But the Lord is his refuge.

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord brings back the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
(Psalm 14, NSV translation)



After I finished my breast cancer treatment in October, one of the commitments I made was to read the Bible in a year. I have only done it once before many years ago, and I felt like God wanted me to do it again. After three months, I am discovering many surprises I didn’t expect.

For example, I am further along in my walk with God now than when I read the entire Bible before. I know more, and I’m in a different place spiritually. Things jump out at me now that I’m sure I read through before without understanding the deeper meaning.

While I was accustomed to reading the Bible on an almost daily basis, I tended to read my favorite passages and those to which I felt drawn. I’ve rediscovered a vast treasure trove of books and stories and life lessons I either never knew or didn’t remember. How exciting it’s been to see the things God is showing me.

For example, Psalm 14, I used to wonder what it meant when it says in the above passage, “They have all turned aside. Together they have become corrupt. There is no one who does good, not even one.”

Is that really true? Does no one do good? Perhaps taking it out of context that would seem to be what God is saying, but put into proper context, I realize now this Psalm is apocalyptic. It’s referring to the time at the end of the tribulation when God’s people have been removed or put into a place of protection, and the earth-dwellers who remain are wicked and corrupt.

The last paragraph is especially gripping to me: “Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!  When the LORD restores His captive people…”

What is so amazing is that God restored the Jews to the land of Israel in unbelief, and David is crying out to God, “Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!” We know that salvation came out of Zion through the death and resurrection of Yeshua Hamashiach, the Messiah.

The Bible says in Zechariah 13:8-9: “It will come about in all the land,” declares the LORD, “That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; but the third will be left in it. And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, 'They are My people,' And they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.’”…

Because my salvation journey began in elementary school with some classmates who were almost all Jewish (I was jealous for their God), I’ve always had a passion to reach the Jews with the message that Yeshua is their Messiah. Many Jews are looking for Him, especially the mystics because they can read the signs and they know the Scriptures. They just don’t realize it is His second coming that’s on the horizon, not His first. I also believe that percentage-wise, more Jews will be saved than Gentiles in those last days. One-third of Israel, the Bible says, will come to know Yeshua as the Messiah shortly before His return. From what Psalm 14 says, it might be an even smaller percentage for the Gentiles.

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” How many times have we heard that in the news? How many times have Christians been mocked? Even if the earth-dwellers don’t say it outwardly, we know them by their works. And it will get worse, but there is Good News.

“For God is with the righteous generation” – Whether that means God will protect the righteous in the last days or that they will be removed, I’m not sure, but I believe it indicates there will be a tremendous revival before His return. I am praying for the church to wake up and realize, the time is now.



God has spoken two things to me:  Be bold and share the Gospel. A sense of urgency speaks to my heart. I plan on writing more blog posts where I share my testimony and what God is teaching me. I hope readers will be encouraged to read the Bible each day, remembering that God has something to speak specifically to you and to me. Oh, that we would crave to hear His voice!
