In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear. Vehicles, suddenly unmanned, careen out of control. People are terror stricken as loved ones vanish before their eyes. Is this the rapture prophesied by scriptures in the Bible from ancient times? If so, what destiny and tribulations are about to befall those who remain on the Earth and are left behind? In the midst of global chaos, airline captain Rayford Steele must search for his family, for answers, for truth.
In one cataclysmic moment, millions around the globe disappear during "the rapture". Those left behind are destined to face war, famine, plagues, and natural disasters so devastating that only one in four people will survive. Odds are even worse for enemies of the Antichrist and his new world order. Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, Bruce Barnes, and Chloe Steele band together to form the Tribulation Force.
"Great book bad narrator"
First they were Left Behind. Then they formed the Tribulation Force. Now they must face Nicolae. Here is the most explosive of the three books thus far, the seven-year tribulation is nearing the end of its first quarter, when prophecy says that "the wrath of the lamb" will be poured out upon the earth. Rayford Steele becomes the ears of the tribulation saints at the highest levels of the Carpathia regime.
The Tribulation calendar moves ever closer to the halfway point, which the two witnesses call “the due time.” Meanwhile, the fourth Trumpet Judgment strikes the solar system, crippling life on earth. The next three judgments are to be so much worse than anything that has come before that an angel flies about heaven, warning the earth of the three woes.
"CAPTURES YOUR ATTENTION"
His Excellency Global community Potentate Nicolae Carpathia is back, this time as Satan. Resurrected and indwelt by the devil himself, it’s no more Mr. Nice Guy as the beast tightens his grip as ruler of the world. Ensconced in a new safe house, the Trib Force suffers tragic loss at the dawn of the second half of the seven-year tribulation, the Great Tribulation.
"Destroyed by narrator"
Rayford Steele and Buck Williams fear they are alone. Each has survived the wrath of the lamb, a global earthquake in the twenty-first month of the tribulation. Neither knows the other is alive, and each is frantically searching for his wife as the devastated world hurtles toward the Trumpet Judgments and the great soul harvest prophesied in Scripture.
The Tribulation Force hurtles toward the four murders foretold in Scripture. The head of Enigma Babylon One World Faith is in jeopardy, as are the two witnesses at the Wailing Wall as “the due time” approaches. A supernatural horde of 200 million demonic horsemen slay a third of the remaining population. Rayford walks into a trap in France and the Tribulation Force prepares for a future as fugitives.
"Excellent ! Fun! get ready for the next book .."
Rayford Steele, his rag-tag team of flying rebels from around the globe, and his extended Tribulation Force would continue what Rayford called Operation Eagle. The Tribulation Force believed that Anti-christ and his minions were about to attack Israeli Christ-followers and that, when they fled, Rayford and his recruited fellow believers would serve as agents of rescue. Nicolae Carpathia, now the total embodiment of evil, desecrates the temple in Jerusalem by entering and declaring himself God.
Carpathia’s forces in New Babylon are cast into utter darkness as all trace of light disappears from the abode of the Antichrist. But all is not well for Rayford Steele and his compatriots either. The Tribulation Force’s aliases and even their Strong Tower safe house have been compromised, forcing Rayford Steele, Buck Williams, and all the force’s members to flee for their lives. The scattered Tribulation Force is drawn inexorably toward the Middle East, as are all the armies of the world.

"One heck of a read"
It’s the midpoint of the seven-year Tribulation. A renowned man is dead, and the world mourns. In heaven, the battle of the ages continues to rage until it spills to earth and hell breaks loose.

But God has another plan.
"The breathtaking appearing of Jesus Christ"

All pretense is gone, even on the part of the Antichrist, as the planet hurtles toward the last battle and ultimate showdown between good and evil.
