The Marisol Deception is a fictional account of a yet future event known as The Tribulation or The Apocalypse and is not meant to be taken as biblical truth, For a complete and accurate account of The Tribulation, please read the book of Revelation.
Although much may seem incredible and perhaps even unbelievable, the events of Revelation will take place at the appointed time.
The storyline of The Marisol Deception is meant to describe possible real-life scenarios that could take place during The Apocalypse. However, the characters and happenings are purely fictitious. Only God knows how things will eventually play out.
Yet, we do know much of what will take place. I have included a list of events and references of the biblical facts below.

We know these things will come to pass. What we do not know is how or when. We know that Jesus will return at a time we think not (Matthew 24:36, 33). He is our only hope to avoid this terrible time in human history.
The Scripture has declared all are without excuse. We are told in Romans 1:18-20, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
Further, we are told, “ , , , There is none righteous, no, not one: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:10, 23). Our standard is not other people. We are measured by the holiness and perfection of the God of the Universe, We fail miserably.
By definition, a holy, perfect God cannot partake in communion with sinful, fallen humankind as He would no longer be holy and perfect. The Apostle writes in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
God brings life. Sin brings death – separation from God. Forgiveness of sin and eternal life are only granted to an individual when they accept God’s free gift. It is a gift. There is nothing you can do to pay for it. There is nothing you can do to earn it. All you can do is accept it from the giver, Jesus Christ.
We read again in Romans, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). God did not wait for us to get our act together. While we were yet involved in sin, Christ’s holy, perfect sacrifice set us free. In my place, He died. In your place, He died – and rose again conquering death once for all. He now offers you His eternal life.
Although He died for all, not all have accepted that free gift. Have you? By simple faith and a choice to repent and follow Him, He will give you that free gift. He will give you peace here on earth as we experience troublesome days, escape from terrible times of The Tribulation, and reserve an eternal place for you in His presence. Trust Him today. It will be so worth it.
