The Sleepwalkers and its newly-released sequel Eyes Pried Open is in part a tale featuring a man and wife struggling to make ends meet on low-wage jobs while so many others appear to be living the literal and proverbial “high-life” of new cars, high-end homes, and a wellspring of cash and credit to spend. Our main character Jeff Seagraves services these “swells” as he toils in a convenience store situated in an upscale American community. These are present-day Americans who are connected through Instagram and Facebook but disconnected from the peril that is creeping across their nation like a noxious, invisible gas. Many have impressive stock portfolios, but don’t have a stock of items that may preserve their lives in the event of national emergency. Even the laborers that do the landscaping and pool cleaning for the swells appear to be doing well as they can afford to spend money daily on 30-racks of Keystone beer, blunt wraps, and gasoline for the guzzling V-8 engines in their current model pickup trucks.
In this upscale community the lies of the mainstream media are being proven as true. While a relatively small of the convenience store’s customers struggle to survive, most are prospering while being clueless to the danger that their nation is facing. For them, the economy under a Marxist president continues to churn as though Marxism and Capitalism are synonymous.
Jeff and his wife Cheryl rely on the alternative news media for their information. They know that things are not as they appear. There is a deception that is keeping scales over the eyes of most, and through their faith in Christ they know that lying, deceiving spirits will fool even the elect. Certainly, those who follow the false god of self are living the good life, but for how long? Is anyone paying attention, or is the warm bed of self-absorption too comfortable a place to rise up from?
In the story as in reality, lying, deceiving spirits are lurking in the shadows of the fortress of American wellness and prosperity. America has an enemy within who seems hellbent on preparing her for absorption into the prophesied beast system and one world government. There’s a supernatural battle that most don’t see if they would even care to pay attention. There is a darkness coming, but too many are blinded by the effulgence of those bearing a false light. There were warnings issued, but they were laughed off as conspiracy theories.
A president promised “transformation” and a YouTube v-logger warned of a coming darkness. Did darkness and transformation come, and were Jeff and Cheryl physically and spiritually prepared?
