The Final Harvest
by Gary W. Babb
After thousands of years of faith on a promise that God would return, think how would the media, the world, the religious hierarchy, and you personally react to receiving a Prophet in today’s technological age. A Prophet that announced the Rapture was coming now, as opposed to a mythical promise of some future event. What if the Prophet proclaimed that God’s message had been corrupted and was far shorter and simpler than the world religions had taught?
Reverend Bill Parks, a young minister in a small, farming community of West Texas, is requested to observe a patient in the local hospital that is reportedly talking in tongues. Dr. Janet Mercer and Rev. Bill Parks jointly attend to and interview the self-proclaimed Prophet, Abraham. The recording of the interviews find their way on to the Internet, where they go viral throughout the world.
Bill and Janet find themselves mystically drawn to each other through the process and unintentionally are labeled and eventually become “God’s Warriors”. They are propelled into spreading God’s Message by demand of the flocking masses through gatherings at major stadiums. There God begins to manifest Himself through supernatural events.
Bill and Janet must resists the negative attacks by the media, many of the religious hierarchy, and large segments of the general non-believing populations, but God protects them in their efforts to spread His word. Follow the events through to its conclusion.
