Toward the end of the global pandemic in mid-2022, the world's financial markets began destabilizing. International currencies were overinflated and over-leveraged. In addition, new digital currencies began to emerge and challenge fiat currencies worldwide. To stop the financial bleeding of the markets, the West created its own Central Bank Digital Currency to compete with the new digital currency markets. But the world would continue to destabilize.
War soon broke out in Eastern Europe, treaties in the Middle East were again breached, conflicts began anew, and a new leader rose up in the region with a small army of people and put down those rebellions with a vengeance. Unchallenged, he became powerful. The EU appointed him the new Chancellor of Peace and tasked him with maintaining peace in the region. Treaties were negotiated among all tribal factions, countries, and certain religious sects. Protections were given to Israel for seven years of peace, and The Third Temple of Solomon was finally rebuilt and there was peace for a time. However, this peace was not to remain. But this was the plan.
With geopolitical tensions and panic rising globally, sightings of UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenons) increased at a staggering rate until the central governments of the world were finally forced to disclose the existence of, and in some cases, involvement with, extraterrestrial life in the mid-2010s. Then it happened, in the early-2030s, the "Creators" (in truth, the בני האלהים, Benei HaʼElōhīm, the fallen angels and their hybrid offspring, נְפִילִים, the Nephilim*) made their return and physical appearance on earth. This revelation brought further destabilization, and religious institutions were rocked to their core as the culture wars increased. A new World Religious Council headed by "The Prophet" arose from this. A new system of worship began from a loose confederation between all significant religions, essentially making them one unified body. But this was the plan.
The "Creators" executed the plan with cold precision. This Chancellor of Peace would be controlled by them and embraced by the World Religious Council headed by "The Prophet," who would hail him as the world's savior. He would be supported by both the EU and the Middle East Union, with his power stabilized by the Nephilim, the hybrid offspring of the creators, which in turn would be controlled by them, and they would all give their allegiance to the Chancellor. But this was the Fallen One's plan.
Once in power, he took control of all Central Bank Digital Currency which gave him global control over the money supply of all governments linked to that system. He then broke the treaty with Israel in the middle of the seven years and set up his headquarters within the new Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem. Global unrest ensued, and religious fanaticism and persecution arose. The world was in flux again and a new form of global government raised its head to enslave mankind and maintain control. The plan was working. With this pretext in place, our story begins.
Cyrus and Trina Peters have long longed for his father since his disappearance. One day a package arrives at his home containing a small metallic book. He suddenly realizes that this is the object mentioned in his father's journal, along with clues, names, and locations of where his father had been, along with a cryptic message concerning the book with pleadings to: "Return to God before the Fallen One finds."
After he and his sister listen to a hidden message from their father explaining the importance of the small book, Cyrus believes his father may still be alive and sets out to find him by using the journal as a guide and somehow returning the book to God. But little does he know that his quest will bring him face-to-face with the ancient enemy, the Fallen One himself, Lucifer. Lucifer has been searching for this little book, this Codex, that has the power to alter God's grand scheme to complete the redemption of His creation, remove evil from the earth, and restore man's place in the eternal kingdom.
With time ticking down and a world in flux, an imminent showdown between the forces of good and evil will throw us headlong into an adventure that will leave you on the edge of your seat as our hero’s quest moves him toward the ultimate truth in This Time and Age.
