Meeting Jesus, book one begins with Denzell Trujillo, young man of Spanish descent who’s attending the University of New Mexico with a proposed major of Graphic Design. His father is a Digital Media professor at the school, who married a gorgeous actress of Black Caribbean descent. The Trujillo’s were one of the original founding families of Albuquerque when it was founded in 1706. But the Lord has a major work planned and He wants Denzell’s help.
Like many works of Jesus, our Messiah, it starts out very small. We start with Denzell Trujillo, a new college freshman art student in Albuquerque, falling asleep in church when the Lord talks to him—so clear he was sure it was out loud. Within three days, he’s a new creation powerfully reborn into a life of wonder. Even more startling, the man chosen to mentor Him in the Kingdom thinks he has powerful things to do—soon! There’s a major evil force beginning to attack Albuquerque.
Then there’s Raquel Henstrum, a young female computer genius tied up in the evil he’s learning to battle in the Spirit. She becomes a real trial: a strong temptation and a target of intercession. However, the intercession won’t work unless he remains pure. But the Lord powerfully backs up his prayers.
Raquel is hooked deep into the evil world of her boss, a black magician, and terrified by the demon who controls her. But she finds unexpected times of clarity and freedom. What is going on?
More than that, the evil coming upon Albuquerque is far outside the people’s comprehension. Where’s it coming from? Who can stop it? Only the anointing of the Lord…
The action moves to the Diné of the Navajo Nation
In the second book, Meeting Navajo, Denzell and Raquel discover that the evil behind the troubles of the first book is behind a major trafficking effort on the Navajo Nation. The godly company birthed in Book One discovers that the evil behind the violence is working globally. They are deeply tied into the Swamp, but what is this mayor of a small city in southwestern Utah? He’s clearly deep into this work of subverting political power. But he’s a nobody.
Tue and Freau Trujillo [Denzell and Raquel’s cover names] become deeply concerned by the young women disappearing off the Res —the Navajo Nation. No one seems to care. As usual, they turn to the only One with real power and ask for help. Notah Begay is simply depressed, and that’s not like him. Like his father, Bebe, he’s a loose and free, old-school Navajo warrior—an increasingly irrelevant type of human in the modern American world.
He was home-schooled and recently received his high school diploma. He and all the young people his age are consumed with getting high, getting laid, and avoiding reality. The girls will do anything to find someone to take care of them. It’s simply too painful. But the Lord has other ideas. Notah is hired by Tue and Freau’s Design Company to get to the bottom of things.
Haloke, a young Navajo orphan abused by two of her many foster fathers, in desperation escaped from her painful life determined to make a way for herself. But she was completely unequipped to resist the charms of Ahiga Tl’izilani. She discovers that she’s an excellent recruiter for the young women desperate enough to do anything to bring themselves support and security. But, Ahiga has a horrible reputation for good reasons. She discovers she’s trapped in a snare for which she volunteered. Her demonic minder makes increasingly terrifying demands for control.
Clearly the Lord is not without a plan. But where it ends up is a true surprise for everyone. The blessings are without precedent in a nation struggling to simply survive. Only the anointing of the Lord…
Then there’s a major expansion into Santa Fe
In book three, Meeting Reality, the Lord makes a major expansion of the work into Santa Fe. But, as usual, He starts with a surprise—a pansexual artist on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. This is one of the top 3 (according to some) fine art centers in the world. Paintings are commonly $30,000 to $50,000 or more. Most of them aren’t too good, they have too much ego involved. But anyway, Eloy de Salas, the artist, answers the Lord’s call.
After the Messiah brings Eloy through a radical rebirth, He uses the same mentors to show this artist how things work in the Kingdom of God. But, he finds himself interceding for an amazingly beautiful demon-possessed trophy wife. Haseya was purchased [for $600,000+] by a political power monger to use for sexual favors to manipulate the political powers in New Mexico.
Haseya has no idea that she was sold as a slave. She had thought she was his wife. But her supposed husband is deeply evil using her as a sexual tool. But Jesus has a plan to take care of that.
More than that, our Messiah has a plan to make a spiritual stronghold in the midst of the fine art elite on Canyon Road. He gives them the wherewithal to build an amazing gallery. He transforms the lives of several people to help, and shows them how he wants things done. It’s a new way of doing business using only believers. It’s glorious.
In book four, Meeting Evil, Eloy and Haseya are confronted by the evil they offended in the process of building Nizhóní Artwork (the new gallery). It’s the same group that was behind the problems in Albuquerque and on the Navajo Nation. It starts with Jasmin Wildhorse, the widow of a maniacal Comanche prophet.
She is living in a demon-infested mansion with people involved with an occultic variation of the Native America Church, called Half Moon+. They use a magic mushroom liqueur instead of peyote to access demonic power. The Lord sovereignly speaks to Jasmin, while she’s under severe demonic attack, showing her the way out. He sends her to a meeting in Eloy and Haseya’s home. There she meets Jesus and ends up a new creation working at the gallery.
She finds herself becoming a close friend of William, the anointed artist-in-residence. Surprised by the Lord, she ends up working in the marketing office, in charge of the Website and online marketing. At her wedding with William, two of the people from Half Moon+ show up to cause chaos. One of them is Bimisi, the Jicarilla Apache medicine man who sicced the demon on her.
The other, Maria Aragón, sees her way out of that mess, and turns to the Lord. That tips Half Moon+ into attempting to destroy the gallery. One thing about spiritual warfare that’s not understood is that the world doesn’t even notice it happening right in front of their eyes. But nasty as it gets, the demons don’t stand a chance with believers walking in faith, following Jesus. It’s a fun ride as the Lord makes fools of the enemy.
