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.

Left Behind No. 9: Desecration

In Desecration: The Antichrist Takes the Throne. Amazing that that phrase makes up a sentence by itself. Anyway, in this exciting installment of the best-selling (although not as best-selling as the Ultimate Book, the Holy Bible) series on a theory of Revelation (whether it will happen or not this way is up to God), 25 days have passed since the start of the Great Tribulation, and just like he always has, Satan through Antichrist is murdering God's people. (He comes to steal, kill and destroy, after all, according to Christ.)

The Antichrist is bewildered by the first two "Bowl Judgments" although the Christians who are up-to-date on Revelation are not (or anything else for that matter, thanks to Tsion Ben-Judah and Bruce's notes).

In the midst of chaos, he busies himself preparing for the ultimate desecration (to the Temple of course) as he proceeds to declare himself god (exactly what evil people want more than anything, but they can never be god and we can be comforted by the fact that they will pay for their attempt).

Obviously the authors did their research (and interpretation). Although a fantastic addition and quite compelling, sometimes one wonders if the authors have something against pilots. Could they not believe before? I mean, how could so many pilots have possibly been left behind? Or is it because of that ever-connected small world of - if you are a pilot, you know other pilots (just like if you're a Christian you know other Christians)?

I'm not sure exactly where it fits on a 1-5, but it is there somewhere. And of course the ending makes you want to read the next installment.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
