This multi-book series is an epic saga that follows a diverse set of characters through the seven-year Tribulation into the Millennium. Pastors, prayer warriors, FBI/CIA agents, Illuminati leaders, the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet vie against each other and God in this compelling drama that presents a strong Biblical case for a prewrath rapture that occurs after the midpoint of the Tribulation. This second book covers the early days of the Tribulation up to the time that the two witnesses of Revelation 11 are revealed. Following an economic meltdown, nuclear war and a virulent virus, the Anti-Christ brings peace to the world except for Christians and Jews. During this false peace, those who defy the Universal Religion Directives are sent to remote detention centers. Former FBI and CIA agents hack into the Universal ID Banking System, the forerunner of the mark of the beast. A militia group forms to combat the forces of darkness. A pastor and Messianic rabbi contend with the Anti-Christ and False Prophet. Christians in underground hideaways evangelize and wage spiritual warfare. Meanwhile, the shadowy leadership of the demonically coordinated New World Order is exposed, while Gods end-time power begins to work through those who are called to be the light of truth within the gross darkness covering the earth.
