People often plead to the Lord only when they are struggling or about to tackle a difficult task, but what happens when we hear the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to us loudly in our hearts and minds? In Jocolby Phillips's new book, the story of a man's spiritual growth teaches us that God's message of love is for everyone, and it's only a matter of whether or not we choose to listen.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Rapture Advent of the Last Days by Jocolby Phillips, the latest book published by Elm Hill, centers on the experiences of Major Christopher Barrett, an officer in the US military, and his struggles with spirituality. Christopher is a sharp, honorable, and loyal soldier who risks his life to serve his country, but he feels just as lost and confused when it comes to opening his heart to God. Despite being surrounded by devout Christian friends, loved ones, and comrades-in-arms, he continues to turn away from the Lord and dismisses those who try to persuade him to hear what God is telling him.
Like Christopher, many of us forget that the Lord is omnipresent and showers us with His blessings in ways that we often overlook. Be it through a wise friend, God-fearing romantic partner, or even a spiritually enlightened stranger, there are ways that God reminds us that He is with us always. Unfortunately, it is only during our darkest days or the best of times that we bother to acknowledge the realness of God, be it in supplication or thankfulness, depending on what situation we're facing.
"He felt alone, despite being surrounded by chaos and some of the people he knew best in the world. He had endless questions about why the night had played out as it had," the author narrated the major's loneliness and anger towards God after losing his best friend and most skilled soldier during a mission. "If God was trying to reach him, the major was tired of receiving the call. Tonight's operation just reinforced that God was not to be trusted when he needed Him most."
However, as a man dedicated to protecting his country and those dear to him, Christopher learned to open his heart and mind to the warnings God has given him through his late friend Brett "Rev" Councilman. Noted in Rev's journal, political events occurring around the world point to the coming End of Days as well as the emergence of the Antichrist. It is then that Christopher accepts Jesus as his Lord and Savior and realizes he must ally with others in order to prepare the rest of the world for what is to come as willed by God.
"I have come to the undeniable decision that the man named Jesus Christ was the Messiah Israel had long awaited and missed," says Israeli General Benjamin Havid, a trusted friend and ally of Christopher. "On this topic of the Messiah, I have read the New Testament over and over again. Finally yielding to the tug on my soul, I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior last week."
