"Something this way wicked comes," writes the author in describing the future for America and the world. The line is from Shakespeare's Macbeth, in which a witch pronounces Macbeth a traitor and a murderer. But Shakespeare's darkest literary revelation can't begin to rival the ominous unveiling Tom Horn performs in Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed.
This is no play dreamed up by the Bard. There is, in reality, indeed something wicked headed in this direction. Apollyon Rising forewarns of its approach in a way totally unique in my experience as a writer/researcher of matters involving eschatology--the study of end times. I sense that Horn's book is destined to garner great interest from all quarters of the halls of intellectual curiosity, not just from those fascinated with Bible prophecy or prophecy in general.
The author tells of awakening one night in a swirl of epiphany, his hours of research congealing into the realization that specific, controlled versions of American history had kept him "in the dark, blinded from the actual course that a frightening network of hidden powers had set our nation upon years before."
Suddenly, Horn relates, "pieces of the puzzle began rapidly falling into place. Things were making sense now--world affairs, changes to U.S. domestic and foreign policy, a renewed focus on the Middle East, Israel, Iran, Iraq, [and] Babylon..."
The preface to Horn's book states the end to his long-time skepticism of conspiratorial claims of the dark forces shaping and molding America's and the world's geopolitical configuration for the future course of history. He then writes:
As outlined in this book, the startling truths behind the clandestine society that helped frame the United States and placed within the Great Seal a prophetic secret doctrine can finally be understood. What even the best researchers of the Illuminati and veiled fraternities such as the Freemasons were never able to fully decipher is spelled out herein for the first time. The power at work behind global affairs and why current planetary powers are hurriedly aligning for a new order from chaos is exposed. Perhaps most incredibly, one learns how ancient prophets actually foresaw and forewarned of this time.
My reading confirms for me the truth of this declaration. Like Horn, I have always been leery of conspiratorial thought with regard to caliginous cabals shaping the destiny of man. The author's truly unprecedented look into the spiritual influences upon the world--and particularly on America's founding and course since--points to the truth in God's Word, the Bible, that the struggle is against supernatural wickedness in high places.
The author's in-depth treatment brilliantly illuminates the evil involved in a devilish master plan rooted in ancient times and becoming ever more manifest in this troubled hour. Reading Apollyon Rising exposes the supernatural as well as humanistic blueprint intended to corrupt mankind as was done in antediluvian times.
Tom Horn's book is not a casual read, but one that is an absolute must for understanding what is going on in this perplexing, even frightening, time in history. Each reading unfolds new layers of enlightenment on where it is all leading, and what to do about it from a personal perspective.
This book is nothing short of essential, in my view.
