The Prophecy of the Sacred Cross
Burdened with the inevitable future of bringing Christians together in the end times, saints and angels alike prep Timothy with Eldership 101 before taking on a gauntlet of faith known as the Trials of the Trinity. But the further he grows in virtue, the closer his family back on earth moves toward danger: Satan’s generals stop at nothing to sabotage the prophecy. More
Parables of the 24th Elder: The Prophecy of the Sacred Cross is a Christian fantasy novel about a twelve-year old boy who is given an opportunity to battle temptations. Yes, we all face this daily in our lives, but rarely in the context of being chased by demons, transported to the heavens, introduced to intelligent creatures, educated on the mysteries of the cosmos and finally transformed into a wise elder before combating the father of lies.
It is halfway through the twenty-first century in America and religion has become a thing of the past. Religious practice must be kept private, and many have abandoned their faith because of it. Exceptionally, Timothy Petrov “fights the good fight of faith” and accepts the world for what it is. That is to say, until his dreams become more troubling: he curiously connects them to worldly disaster. Priest John Petrov, Timothy’s father, also is attuned to global misfortunes and links them to the imperative revival of the Ancient Church. Realizing there is little time, he turns to an assembly of bishops only to meet resistance and listen to their frustrations with his late father’s prophecies. But before the end of the emergency council meeting, Father John must depart as he is informed that Timothy has been in a horrible accident. Unknown to Father John, his son was actually transported to the Kingdom of Heavenly Creatures. He there receives protection against fallen angels who, in pursuit of a cross given to him by his grandfather, go to great lengths to disrupt his life both in the visible and invisible worlds. Through perseverance Timothy overcomes temptation and trials before returning home to continue the divination.
