Antichrist invades, desecrates Jerusalem temple. Global Community choice: loyalty mark or guillotine. Pandemic sweeps city; masses writhe.
As the Tribulation Force prepares to guide Israeli exiles to refuge in Petra, Global Community supreme ruler Nicolae Carpathia—now fully possessed by Satan—desecrates the temple in Jerusalem and installs himself as god. All must accept Carpathia’s loyalty mark or die, while a terrible plague sweeps through the city. At first these events seem unrelated, but the Trib Force knows better. They are carrying out the will of the true God—blatantly defying Carpathia. But one mistake could bring crushing failure. Desecration, the best-selling novel in the world the year it was released, is #9 in the phenomenal New York Times best-selling Left Behind series that rocked the publishing world and made millions think seriously about the future and their places in it.
With special features relating to current events and end-times prophecy.
apocalyptic christian series, ninth book in bestselling series, via dolorosa, god inflicts sores on marked, petra, shocking surprises, gc fighter planes, antichrist invades, desecrates jerusalem temple, fully possessed by satan
2002 Christy Award finalist! His Excellency Global Community Potentate Nicolae Carpathia, no longer pretending to be a pacifist, has ordered every Morale Monitor armed as he prepares to travel along the Via Dolorosa and then onward to the temple, where shocking surprises await.
The lines are drawn between good and evil as God inflicts sores upon the flesh of those who have taken the mark. Meanwhile His chosen ones flee to Petra, where they watch anxiously as GC fighter planes appear overhead and bombs begin to fall.
A repackage of the ninth book in the New York Times best-selling Left Behind series.
I like that this book has continued to expand on the mark and show the consequences people are having for accepting the mark.
