Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Armageddon: The Cosmic Battle of the Ages is the 11th and originally the second to last novel in the famous Left Behind series, right before the Glorious Appearing until so many fans wanted to know about after the thousand-year reign that Jenkins and LaHaye wrote the "sequel" and the 13th (and the worst) of the novels Kingdom Come: The Final Victory.

Anyway, Armageddon chronicles the final battle between Christ and Antichrist and each's respective armies, and finds our Tribulation Force heroes caught in the middle of a brutal crossfire and regime. The persecution has grown so intense that the survivors can only raise their eyes to Heaven from whence their help comes and pray they live to see the Second Return of Christ. They also find themselves inexplictly drawn to the Middle East, where the physical (instead of spiritual, which happened two thousand years ago in a Garden in Gethsemane) battle between Good and Evil is playing out.

Chloe comes out of the safe house OoO. Tsion and Buck head to Israel as Carpathia plans to bomb Israel (how does the Trib Force always manage to get to Israel right when something important is about to happen?) and Rayford is injured outside of Petra. There is no safe place, except Petra.

The air is thick with evil...

Now, everyone talks about Armageddon like it's a World War III battle. But it is soo much more than that. It is Scriptural. It is the Ultimate Battle, the culmination of millenniums of deception vs. truth in which Christ dukes it out with Antichrist, and God and Satan finally come to blows (and of course Antichrist/Satan loses) and mankind FINALLY chooses sides (whether right or wrong).

Despite the "strangeness" of everyone always managing to be exactly where they need to be to witness the foretold events coming to life, The Left Behind series is actually decent, a must-read, and Armageddon, the ultimate battle, is no exception. Especially if you want to know the fates of Rayford, Buck and Chloe.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
