Thunder of Heaven, written by Tim LaHaye, creator and coauthor of the world-renowned Left Behind series—the most successful adult fiction series ever written—and Craig Parshall, is 355 pages of non stop action and intrigue. As the publisher promises, 'it is ripped from the headlines of world events and filtered through Scriptural prophecy', and in my opinion could not be more timely. The book centers around the main character, Joshua Jordan, who has created RTS (Return To Sender), a device installed on airplanes that, when attacked by a missile, will return the missile to its point of origin, thus blowing up the senders.
The good guys in the world are being attacked from every angle, from every enemy. America is confronted by attacks and attempted attacks by al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorists. Americans are also dealing with dirty politicians, corrupt media (except for one internet newman and one network, AmeriNews, started by American patriots, a/k/a private vigilantes) and lagging numbers of faithful Christians.
Global warming advocates plan on using ecumenical religious leaders to bring all nations into a group pushing climate change. There is a fight for leadership to head the global warming mega behemoth -- a unification of world religions to be a force behind the global warming movement. The United Nations forms a climate convention and a global coalition of religions, that (I quote) has become its public relations arm, trying to force new international environmental standards on every nation.
Israel has her problems too. Iran still desires to destroy Israel and they now have the means to do it. In addition to Iran as a clear and present danger, a coalition of nations is gathering its joint military to attack Israel from all directions. Also, the former Soviet empire has been entirely reconstructed -- without any international condemnation or sanctions from the U.N.
The world seems ready to explode in violence. There are uprisings in the Middle East, but not the Arab Spring that is in the news today. The word goes out -- Quim -- the Persian word, the signal for Arabs everywhere, including the Palestinians in the Gaza, to become part of the Qiam, the "uprising."
But God has a plan, a plan he told us about in his Word, the Holy Bible, thousands of years ago, Thunder of Heaven, Ezekiel's thunder.
I won't give away anything in this book because I don't want to destroy your enjoyment in reading. If you are one of the faithful, you will be uplifted and renewed by this fiction novel. If you are not, then I believe the Holy Spirit can speak to you through Thunder of Heaven. Read it, share it with your friends and family.
I leave you with one excerpt from the book:
"... it takes more of a leap of faith to believe that life started on this planet randomly than it does to believe it was set in motion by a Creator God. ... God himself orchestrated this victory for Israel so that the world would see that He is God. It is God's most spectacular evidence of Himself to date. You have to ask yourself, if this proof of God doesn't do it, if it doesn't satisfy you, then exactly what manner of proof would? ... So, my prayer for you is that you take this opportunity to get right with God, pull down your wall of philosophical obstructionism and admit the truth. God is there. That when it comes to dramatic miracles of biblical proportions God has broken His silence, and he is calling you to believe that He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to earth, according to the Scriptures -- and that He is coming again."
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
