Wrath & Righteousness Episode Three is Son of the Morning…


“Even as I whisper to you, Father, even as my breath touches your ear, the final battle has begun. The sun is setting on the frail world you have known. It is passing, and with its passing, the greater kingdom shall come.”

The death of the Saudi King has removed the final barrier between peace and chaos. Prince Abdullah al-Raman, a pawn of Lucifer and the Forces of Darkness, has assumed the throne and is now in a position to draw Israel and the United States into an unprecedented war.

Meanwhile, Azadeh, a young girl who may hold the key to preventing the impending destruction, has recently witnessed her father’s brutal murder at the hands of terrorists. She has set out on her own in a desperate attempt to survive, but Lucifer and his minions are well aware of her power and will stop at nothing to ensure she fails.

Check out this excerpt featuring Azadeh’s true-to-life spiritual conversation with an old woman, a Persian Christian:

Azadeh took a bite of her bread and chewed slowly, still fearful of saying the wrong thing. But it was so fascinating. She felt drawn to the cross, and she stood up and moved closer, leaning over the head of the bed. She touched it with both hands, running her fingers down both sides. It felt so solid, so heavy, as if it was ten pounds of pure silver. “This represents the suffering of the Great Prophet Jesus?” she asked.

“Yes, child, it does.”

“He was killed on the cross? Crucified?”

Pari nodded in answer.

“You celebrate the death of your God? I do not understand.”

Pari thought a long moment. “We do not celebrate his death, but we remember it, yes. His death was important because He died for me.”

“He died for you?”

“He died for all of us, Azadeh Jan.”

Azadeh shook her head. It seemed horribly cruel. What kind of religion believed that men would crucify their God? What kind of religion would worship such a powerless being, a God who could not even defend Himself against His own creations? And what kind of religion would worship a dead God? She didn’t understand it, but she didn’t question it now.

Glenn Beck chatted with author Chris Stewart about the larger themes that drive the 10-episode series, including how closely Stewart’s narrative (written a decade ago) resembles today’s headlines even as it explores man’s role in the eternal battle between good and evil.
