Dominion VII: Revelation
Book VII - Revelation Summary:
Josiah bar Judah has always been a dreamer, though it is his capacity to discover deeper truths within the mystery of music that has drawn the attention of the Patriarchal Council. The young Hebrew boy has been told that his people once were a great nation, chosen and loved by Elohim Himself -— but that was before The Forgetting. The Age of Miracles had long past, and his fellow Israelites now toil under the oppression of the Pharaoh, constructing the “Grand Palisade” in defense against an unseen army from the east; a massive invasion prophesied by the Divine Oracle.
Yet despite their difficult circumstances, Josiah finds seeds of hope among his fellow Hebrews; the rediscovery of an Old Covenant has revealed the promise of a Messiah who will deliver the People of Elohim from their bondage. And now, a mysterious yet elusive soul dwells among them—a man known as Orpheus, also called “Song Bearer”. Many believe that he himself is the “Anointed One”, while some whisper that he is none other than the fallen Prince Corban, a quasi-legendary figure who lost the favor of the Pharaoh in the midst of the Great Tribulation.
As war looms on the horizon, the Hebrew people struggle to discover where mythology ends and reality begins. Are the stories and teachings in The Writings -— tales of men called Adam, Abraham, and Moses -— mere folklore and analogy? Or does mankind possess a history marked by his tumultuous yet persevering relationship with its Creator?
Through this christening fire, a Divine Canticle, composed before the beginning of time, seeks a temporal venue, with humanity itself serving as the chosen instrument of this universal—and final—Opus of the Eternal Sovereign.
Series (Dominion) Summary:
A great monument of the Islamic faith crumbles to the ground in a freak earthquake, setting the stage for mankind’s entry into the next age; an apocalyptic time where right and wrong, love and indifference, and black and white fade into alternating shades of gray.
Fraternal twins, Jesse and Tobias, are born to a deeply troubled Marisha Chardin under the diabolical oversight of a man, known only as Luther, who possesses a darkened presence. Though seeing the fulfillment of his own desires in young Jesse, Luther eventually orchestrates the demise of each child as a world now devoid of hope moves on.
Out of the remote depths of Africa, enter into the arena a mysterious soul, Jimi T. Expo – musician, philosopher, and spiritual leader. Seemingly in a matter of weeks, this man (reverently dubbed the Mystic King) injects the world with a ray of hope – a needed dose of light. Utilizing the power of song, Jimi T. offers his message of peace, liberation, and a true heaven right here on earth to a global audience, all in preparation for our final stage of existence – the full assimilation of mankind into the Collective Soul of the universe.
With the rapid decay of organized religion, and a germane response manifested in The Way of Mystic Realism (a belief system based on relative spiritualism and social truths) the world is left to ponder the question: Is this man the Christ – the promised Messiah who has come to set humanity right? Or might he indeed have a darker purpose? One man, Nathan Page, steps into center stage; facing the maelstrom through the eyes of an agnostic, but with a heart perhaps somewhere else.
The scene has been set in an all-too-familiar, frighteningly contemporary time period. In the final analysis, will mankind choose good over evil? Or perhaps even worse, will he even be able to tell the difference?
To whom… or what… will dominion be granted?
