Kingdom Come - Tim LaHaye

11:6).

ONE

RAYFORD STEELE had to admit that the first time he saw a bear and then a leopard moving about in public, something niggled at him to keep his distance, to not show fear, to make no sudden movements. But when he saw the bear and the cat cooperate to climb a tree and make a meal of leaves and branches, he was emboldened to trust God for the whole promise. It wasn’t just he who had become a vegetarian. It was true of all former carnivores.

Rayford moved quietly to the trunk of the tree and watched the animals cavort and eat. And when a branch fell, he himself tasted the leaves. He enjoyed fruit and vegetables more, but he could see what the creatures found in the plants. He trusted Christ to calm him when the great leopard leaped down and nuzzled his leg the way a house cat would, purring, then sitting to rest.

As for the bear, it ignored him and stretched out beside the big cat. Talk about a whole new world. . . .

Rayford deduced that the sun was brighter without being hotter, because Tsion Ben-Judah taught that its light was somehow enhanced by the ever-present glory of Jesus. A simple contraption out in the open allowed Rayford to concentrate the light through a magnifier and heat vegetables he and Irene and Raymie had gathered for a special feast. Irene had made butter from milk she had collected from a cow, so when everyone had assembled, they were met with steaming piles of fresh produce, drenched in butter.

And when they had eaten their fill, they retired outside to hear Irene’s account of the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Like everyone else, Cameron Williams was fascinated with all that had gone on and what was yet to come. Of course, as a late martyr, he had spent very little time in heaven—just long enough to reunite with his wife, Chloe, and look forward to seeing their son back on earth at the Glorious Appearing. Now he anticipated the special dinner where his mother-in-law was to tell yet another story of Jesus.

No one called Cameron Buck now, because, he said, there’s nothing to buck here. And strange about Cameron and Chloe’s relationship was that they still loved each other, but not romantically. Their entire hearts’ desires were on the person of Jesus and worshiping Him for eternity. In the Millennium, they would live and labor together with Kenny and raise him, but as there would be no marrying or giving in marriage, their relationship would be wholly platonic.

It’s bizarre, Chloe told Cameron. I still love and admire and respect you and want to be near you, but it’s as if I’ve been prescribed some medicine that has cured me of any other distracting feelings.

And somehow that doesn’t insult me, Cameron said. Does my feeling the same offend you?

She shook her head. Her mind, like his, must have been on Jesus and whatever He had for them for the rest of time and eternity.

Do you realize, Chlo’, that we still have to raise Kenny in the nurture and admonition of the Lord and see to it that he decides for Christ?

Only true believers and innocents had survived the Tribulation and the sheep-and-goats judgment to make it into the kingdom. How many children of the Tribulation must there be, Chloe said, who still have to choose Christ over living for themselves?

Children of the Tribulation, Cameron said. I like that.

God has been impressing on me that Kenny will be only one of many children in our charge.

Me too, Chloe. I find that amazing.

As they talked, it became clear that the Lord had shown them both that their recompense for giving their lives and—in essence—losing their son for a time because of that would be the blessing of a hundredfold more children to love. Cameron could only imagine where these children would come from, but his old mentor Tsion Ben-Judah reminded him that a hundredfold in the Scriptures very likely meant many more than a

    This is the final book in the Left Behind series. It is a bit of a disapointment after the excitement of the previous books. It is a look at what the world will possibly be like when Christ comes back to rule for 1,000 years. It skips thru the years/centuries at a breakneck pace. With no real enemy to fight the book just comes off as boring. The Biblical figures such as Noah, Caleb, Joshua and David even come off as a bit standoffish. As they are supposed to be the guest speaker at the COT (a school for the Children of the Tribulation) they even come off as mundane. While they do give you pictures in your head of how it might be, it just doen't do what I imagine it to be , justice.

    "Kingdom Come" met my expectations for the polished duo of LaHaye and Jenkins. When the timeline for the plot needed to cover 1,000 years in under 400 pages, I was a bit sceptical that they could pull it off. They came through by using roughly the first half of the story to give a detailed account of the world under the authority of King Jesus. The only ones in the new kingdom were Christians left on earth after King Jesus judged the nations. Those Christians who had died both before and during the triulation returned with Jesus and ruled under Him. The mix of immortals and naturals quickly re-established the nations on earth.Even though Satan was removed from the earth, those who were born to the naturals had the choice of obedience or rebellion to King Jesus. The only conflict in the plot was the internal agonies that Christian parents felt on seeing their children rebel and the attempts by their friends and family to persuade them to change their minds. While the authors limited the plot to follow the prophecies given in the Bible, they did an excellent job of building up to a climax and bringing both the book and the series to a grand completion.

    Quite an unsatisfying ending to a series that seemed to lose most of its steam by the latter half. Instead of keeping readers interested in a plot that should hold an immense potential for suspense and drama, you find biblical quotes splattered all over the pages in substitution of a real story. Arguably the ending is already a done deal since the story is following a pre-established storyline, but it seemed like the author's used that as an excuse to put no imagination to the ending of the series. In the end, the bible was used a crutch rather than a platform for creative interpretation.

    All of the Left Behind books are provacative and page turning. I read them all at least once a year.

    Wonderful! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kingdom Come! All the Left Behind series novels have left me on the edge of my seat!

    This book read without much of a story line, as if the authors were trying to milk whatever was remaining from the franchise.The theology was like sugar water mixed with urine that was called lemonade. Though I am a Christian, I am not a follower of LaHaye's dispensationalism, and it left me wondering a lot of things. Are we bound to follow the law and feasts in the kingdom to come? So why not today? How is it that people who were in Heaven, in perfection, come back to earth to live in a very imperfect world? Is that not like getting a taste of the most delicious dish you've ever had then told you have to wait 1000 years to eat the rest?I remain a believer in Christ, but I am farther from LaHaye's version of Christianity than I was when I started reading these books.
