Abaddon Ascending

A few months ago I started following the fascinating programs Prophecy in the News with Dr. Kevin Clarkson and Prophecy Watchers with Gary Stearman. Let me be clear – I do not agree with everything they say, but the programs raise some interesting issues and have a variety of guests discussing sometimes controversial topics of Christian prophetic significance.

A couple of guests in particular that I found intriguing, Josh Peck and Tom Horn, have been interviewed several times by Mr. Stearman. I felt the Holy Spirit give me the nudge that I should investigate this one book they were promoting. It’s called Abaddon Ascending.

For those of you who have been a fan of or watched Stargate (or even Dune, for that matter), perhaps you might also find Peck & Horn’s work captivating. From a Christian perspective, these writers explore wonders of the world that remain a mystery: the Pyramids of Giza, incredible Roman ruins and Incan edifices. Many of these feats remain inexplicable because of their precision, grandeur and use of technology that wasn’t prevalent until modern times.

However, the focus of this book is CERN. The authors delve into Scriptural passages and historical information about the location of this scientific community to try and parse out what exactly is going on there. In particular, the topic of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is unpacked.

What I appreciated about the book was that these Christians dared to explore the topic of the book, and from a perspective knowledgeable about the Bible and the historical account. Now, some of their propositions may not have been correct, but what I found appealing was that they approached the subject from a mathematical point of view, offering calculations and citing many authentic sources in an effort to bolster their thesis.

I won’t offer up any more details about the book itself. Suffice it to say, if this area in the least interests you, perhaps you might considering reading it? The book illuminates in a very real way the spiritual battle raging around us, pointing to supernatural causes to typically “scientific” topics that are not always taken a look at from a Christian angle.
