5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific entry, June 7, 2006
This review is from: The Rapture: In the Twinkling of an Eye--Countdown to the Earth's Last Days (Before They Were Left Behind, Book 3) (Hardcover)
The countdown to the Rapture has begin and though he doesn't know it will happen soon, Nicolae Carpathia, is making plans with the help of his spirit guide (Lucifer) to take control of the world. He blackmails the president of Romania using intimidation and threats to his family into stepping down from his post and the outgoing president declares to the people that Carpathia should be the next president. Raymond Steele, enamored of flight attendant Hattie Durham neglects his wife and his young son Jamie, thinking they are fools for being so involved in the church.

Days before Carpathia makes his speech to the United Nations, the Rapture occurs and his sprit guide shows him how to use the disappearances to his advantage. Raymond's wife Irene has almost given up hope that her husband will turn into the man who showered her with love. When the trumpet sounds, Irene and Jamie are lifted into heaven given new bodies and minds. There they are judged for how they lived their life after they received salvation. They see and explore heaven and interact with God and his son. Irene, happy at last still prays that Raymond and Chloe, her daughter, will seek salvation through the Lord.

THE RAPTURE explores in depth the characters of the protagonists and the antagonists of the Left Behind series. It is a fulfilling novel that answers many questions not covered in the other books in the series like why Raymond's first officer committed suicide and how Carpathia persuaded the president of Romania to step down. The authors have written another fascinating and revolutionary work in a series that most readers wish will never end.

Most readers wish will never end?

I think not!

What did Paul say was going to happen in the moment in the twinkling of an eye? Lets see. We shall "all" be changed. The resurrection occurs. What else did Paul say happens with the resurrection? Christ will come in glory and destroy the Anti-Christ. When did Jesus say he will return in glory? After the tribulation. But what did Jesus say will occur the day the Anti-Christ is revealed? Answer- One shall be taken and one will be left. That is the rapture of those Jesus said are blessed because they are the wise and faithful servants, but the unwise servants who begin to say in their hearts, my Lord delays his coming, shall have their portion with the unbelievers and hypocrites. Ready or Not, Here I Come written by Steven Janda articulates all these truths. It is available on Amazon.com. Writers are rushing to read the book to rewrite their own books, but the very first articulation of these truths was Ready or Not, Here I Come, which is now available on Amazon.com.

Steven,

Harriet hasn't read the Bible, either.

I agree. These folks that believe in a pre-tribulation resurrection are off the wall scripturally. It's painful to think about their view. There is no tribulation after the resurrection. Jesus said the resurrection is on the last day. He said he comes in glory immediately after the tribulation. What point would there be of having a rapture after the tribulation? Read the parables. Christ comes unexpectedly during a time of negligence when most of church is unaware. That's the two in field scenarios. Then he says the Anti-Christ is revealed the same day so head to the hills to those who are left. Luke 17:20-37, Luke 13:24-30, and Luke 12: 20-40. It's all there in living color.

Thank you

Harriet:
Surely Steven A. Janda's is a modest proposal.

Steven,

I can't go into the biblical details, as I am NO theologen, but if HK is writing about it, I can guarantee she hasn't read it, whether it's the bible, the book in her review, or any comparison or review she may make to/of your book. She does NOT read ANY of the books she writes "reviews" for. It's sad. I hope your book sells well.

Stanley,

He might as well ask for the stars from the sky and for Adam Ant to become heterosexual and marry me. *sigh* Some dreams are just impossible.
