It has been nearly two years since the day of the mass disappearances. In one cataclysmic instant, millions everywhere the globe simply vanished, leaving everything but flesh and bone In the back of. Global war has erupted, and the Tribulation Force sets a suicidal course that places them in direct opposition to the rise of Antichrist. A repackage of the third book in the New York Times best-selling Left In the back of series.
Antichrist. The very word send shivers through us. And Nicolae Carpathia certainly does not disappoint as Antichrist. Nicolae is the third book in Left Behind series written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, and is preceded by book one, Left Behind, and book two, Tribulation Force.
Nicolae Carpathia becomes the point of interest as he continues to consolidate his power, unifying political states (“Global Community”), media (“Global Community Network,” “Global Weekly”), and religions (“Enigma Babylon One World Faith”) under a Nicolae-appointed supreme pontiff. Nicolae himself is grand potentate of the global community.
Our heroes, pilot Rayford Steele and journalist Buck Williams, at the side of the rest of the Tribulation Force, continue their struggle to live to tell the tale and protect their families in the course of global war and destruction. They have come to recognize Nicolae Carpathia to be the Antichrist prophesied in the Bible, and to them it comes as no great revelation that this man, who presented himself as a charming and benevolent leader, has been unmasked as a ruthless and cruel tyrant, manipulating people and events to serve his own ends. And his ends are undoubtedly evil.
It becomes apparent that the chaos and turmoil created by Nicolae are the fulfillment of John’s prophesy of the seven seals as recorded in the book of Revelation. And it becomes also apparent they are now facing the sixth seal, a great earthquake which is often referred to as “the wrath of the lamb.” This upheaval of the earth, with its accompanying death and destruction, is familiar apocalyptic imagery: a blood-red moon, a sun turned black, and the stars falling from the sky. And the Tribulation Force discovers that these fantastic descriptions grow to be not so very far from the truth.
Who survives? How? What does Nicolae have in mind for the world? Readers of the first two books will have to not be disappointed with this third installment to this chilling tale.
