Book Three in the Fire of Heaven Trilogy
Suspense aficionados need to keep their calendars wide open for the release of Fire of Heaven--because once they start reading Bill Myers's thrilling story of Revelation's two witnesses, they won't be putting it down! In this third installment of his trilogy, Myers connects plot threads and characters from his previous best-sellers Blood of Heaven and Threshold, weaving an enthralling new story. Newlyweds Sarah Weintraub and Brandon Martus (Threshold), convinced they are the two end-times prophets mentioned in Revelation, establish a new clinic to facilitate Brandon's healing ministry. As a married couple, however, they are experiencing anything but wedded bliss. Brandon begins to misuse his powers, and Sarah is lured away from her new husband as she travels to Nepal to help little Eric, infected with the mysterious Jesus blood (Blood of Heaven). As Brandon visits each of the seven churches in Revelation, he prepares himself for an inevitable clash with Lucas Ponte, the political leader of the entire world. Fire of Heaven is more than the story of Sarah and Brandon--it's an allegory of the Bridegroom's love for his bride. In a stunning finale, the lovers are reunited to combat evil, joined in heart and purpose by a fresh understanding of God's boundless, burning love for the world.
"My words will become a fire in your mouth that you cannot contain. They will burn until you have warned my Bride. Warn her before it is too late!"
So begins a dramatic journey into holiness, as newlyweds Brandon and Sarah Martus accept the call to become Revelation's two prophets.
This is not another end-times thriller, but one of the most intense and thought-provoking pieces of Christian fiction to come along in years. As the couple prepare for the final showdown against Satan himself, they must live and proclaim the truths Christ has given his end-times church. From America, to archaeological ruins dating back to Bible times, to the Himalayas, and finally to Jerusalem, Brandon and Sarah battle the forces of man and hell while learning the true cost of following Christ . . . and experiencing a Love far deeper than either could have imagined.
Author Bill Myers says, "Writing this book has changed my life."

Read an Excerpt
Sarah, your veil, it's all here, let me straighten it. Sarah, tilt your head this way. Sarah!
Dr. Sarah Weintraub obeyed and leaned forward.
"A little more. Now please, please pay attention."
She stood just outside the sanctuary doors as the wedding coordinator flitted about making last-minute adjustments to her gown, her veil, or anything else that the poor lady could fixate over. But Sarah didn't mind. The elaborate wedding had mostly been for Brandon's mother. Which was okay. It seemed a small price to pay to comfort a woman who had lost her daughter, her husband, and was now about to lose her only son. Of course they would stay in touch with her, try to meet her needs. But as the clinic continued to grow and word of Brandon's healing ministry continued to spread, time for any personal life was becoming less and less of a reality.
Some thought the wedding came too quickly. Others were sure it wouldn't last. It would be hard enough to begin a life amidst the growing famine, the panic sweeping the world over this new virus, and the current financial calamities. But add to that the fact that Brandon was four years her junior, and many were certain that the couple was asking for marital disaster.
Although the other issues were of concern, the age difference was inconsequential. It didn't bother Brandon and it certainly didn't bother her. In fact, Sarah found him less self-absorbed and ego-driven than most men twice his age. Not that he didn't have his moments, but over the past year Brandon Martus had become the most compassionate and sensitive man she had ever met. And, best of all, much of that compassion and sensitivity was directed toward her.
There were other differences, such as their backgrounds and their education. Brandon grew up in this Indiana farm community and was lucky to finish high school. Sarah was West Coast born and bred and held her doctorate in neurobiology. If ever the term "opposites attract" applied, it would have to be to these two.
But there was that prophecy in Revelation . . . and the mound of evidence that indicated they just might be the two end-time prophets who would prepare the world for the return of Jesus Christ much as John the Baptist had prepared it for his first coming. Of course most of that was subject to interpretation, which proved to be a major source of disagreement between the two of them. She never understood why Brandon insisted upon taking every word so literally, while she, although admitting that the two of them might somehow be used, saw the prophecies as more spiritual and symbolic. The truth of the matter was, nobody knew for certain. Not even Gerty. But, at the very least, from what they could tell, the two of them were to work together as a team. And what better way to be a team than to be husband and wife?
Oh, and there was one other detail that carried weight in their decision for matrimony . . .
They loved each other. Fiercely. They were absolutely committed to one another, regardless of the odds.
Sarah peeked through the glass in the sanctuary door. She could see Brandon standing before the altar, incredibly handsome in his tuxedo.
For her, the attraction had been instant, love at first sight. Yes, there was his long black hair and those muscular shoulders. And yes, there were those killer gray eyes which could still make her stomach do little flip-flops. But that was just the wrapping. Because inside, inside was a heart not only full of kindness, but a heart full of her. What had he said the night he'd proposed? "You're the missing piece I've been looking for all of my life . . . you're what fills my hollowness." The words had made her cry then and they almost did now. She knew that whatever the future held, despite graying hair, wrinkled skin, or sagging body, he would always be there for her. Always. And she would be there for him.
Of course there were a few other obstacles to overcome . . . like the forces of hell trying to destroy both of their lives. For Brandon it had been a showdown in this very church, a confrontation with what they believed to be a manifestation of Satan himself. For Sarah it had been a violent collision that sent her flying through a pickup's windshield. If it hadn't been for Brandon's intervention at the hospital, one of the first times he'd put his healing powers to use, she would not be standing here today. And, except for a nasty scar running across her forehead and down to her right jaw, she was as good as new.
Actually, better. Because, in the process of praying to heal her body, Brandon had healed her soul.
"Get ready, Sarah. The prelude is almost done . . ."
Sarah glanced up at the wedding coordinator who was pulling open the doors in preparation for the wedding party processional. She gathered herself together and threw a look at her father. The poor guy appeared more nervous than she was. She leaned over and whispered, "It's okay, Dad -- everything will be all right."
He gave what was supposed to be a reassuring smile and patted her arm with his cold, damp hand.
As a little girl she had never seen much of her father. But she did inherit his love for medicine, and even more importantly, she inherited his drive to be the best. If Sarah had learned one thing from her father, it was that success had little to do with brains or beauty and everything to do with ambition and hard work. Although it could be a plus, the ambition had created terrible problems for her in the past, and on more than one occasion it had proven to be her Achilles' heel. Still, as time passed and her love for God increased, she had learned how to deal with it and for the most part kept it under control.

I have never read a book written by a Christian Author that has gripped me into the book like Bill Myers did with this book. I have never heard or read a message on the Churches in Revelations I coulds understand, until now. This book is not 'Christian Fluff' it is realistic life. The saying save the best for last in this series of books 'Blood of Heaven', 'Threshold' and 'Fire of Heaven' this one deffinately was the best. Thank you Bill Myers.
This was an interesting take on the end times. The interplay of scripture and fiction was well done. Food for thought ...
The first book I read by Bill Myers was 'When the Last Leaf Falls'. Then I was hooked! Bill Myers is an incredibly talented writer with a true grasp of God and his promises. This novel is a real eye-opener and will change the way you view the book of Revelation. Once again, Mr. Myers, well done!
This book is one of the best I've read when it comes to understanding the book of Revelation. It is written in a way that grabs the reader's attention and gives food for thought. It makes plain that this is fiction but also gives you an idea of 'what if' from a different perspective. One of the best religious fiction books I've ever read.
This book has changed my life forevor.It showed you how much Christ loved us that he died on the cross.The ending was superb.
Bill Myers warns you up front that this is NOT an end-times prophecy book. He was going for a deep spiritual truth in the hopes of encouraging us to be ready for what lies ahead. The best interpretation of 'Dead in Christ' I've ever heard! Also, for the first time I understand much more deeply the letters to the seven churches. I definitely want to try harder to do better and with feeling God's love engulf me, maybe I can. Thank you Bill Myers! This was your best work yet and definately inspired by God!
