Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Matt Hiatt has recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan with Special Operations. While stationed at Pendleton, the Marines allow him to work for a civilian company called Delta Defense. Delta Defense engineers and develops weapons for the U.S. military and rely on Matt’s expertise for field-testing the equipment. Since his return from the Middle East, Matt has experienced several recurring dreams about a woman he doesn’t know and hasn’t met (yet). He documents the dreams in a journal to keep track of their content and recurrence. While at work one morning, Matt receives an instant message from a man named Sesom who warns Matt that people are tracking him and his life is in danger. Sesom invites Matt to meet him at a popular café near Delta Defense to share more details of his discovery. While Matt is skeptical, he has had a few strange encounters recently and would like to meet Sesom to understand why someone would want to track him. The meeting reveals that people are following Matt and want to kill him before he has a chance to reveal his dreams and visions. Sesom also shares that Matt’s visions are a catalyst to the beginning of Revelation and an inevitable return of the Messiah. The meeting at the café ends in bloodshed and Matt witnesses firsthand that a group of evil people intends to end his life. Matt finds out there are Disciples that found Sesom by their own visions and discovery. Matt is unique because Sesom had visions of finding him in the City of Angels, and Matt’s knowledge could hold the secret to understanding the beginning of Revelation. These modern day Disciples are different than Disciples that followed Jesus 2000 years ago. While the Disciples have a strong conviction in their own beliefs and skills, they come from different religions and two of them are women. The Disciples have come from all over the world to follow Sesom as he searches for the meaning of his visions and subsequent calling. They are trained in martial arts, hand-to-hand combat, specialized weapons, kendo, karate, and information gathering and sharing. Their trips take them to the Western Wall of Jerusalem and the Vatican in Rome. The Disciples find the woman of Matt’s dreams in Jerusalem and she becomes much more than a metaphor in Matt’s mind. She has been touched by the Holy Spirit and is the key to the second coming of the Messiah. However, she is in great danger and at risk of being eliminated by a group of evil people that call themselves Samil. With twists and turns at every page, the Disciples embark on a journey together to understand their fate. After two years of waiting, they have found critical partners in their journey of faith and understanding. The 12th Disciple is the first novel in a series of books that will usher in Revelation and the 2nd coming of the Messiah. One problem is of great concern for the Disciples. The second coming may have been aborted. Book One in The 12th Disciple series.
