Insatiable lust for power characterizes the end times
Sharing his perspective on the events leading up to the second coming of Christ, Chris Hambleton covers the last part of the Tribulation following the desecration of the Temple and destruction of Israel in "The Siege of Zion," the third book in his trilogy about the end times. Beginning with the death of the Pope and the initiation of the "mark of the beast", "The Siege of Zion" rapidly moves into the storyline and reminds us that we, as Christians, need to be diligent and stay attune to God's Will and purpose for our lives. It also compels us to share our faith and the good news of salvation through Christ with others.
Hambleton's book is more than just a fictional work based on Bible prophecy. It demonstrates how Satan's insatiable lust for power and hate for God and His people will ultimately lead to destruction and death for those who align themselves with him while rejecting the truth of God's Word. The reality of one world government, currency and religion, at one time virtually unbelievable, is now beginning to be discussed as a possibility of solving the world's problems. Christians and abstainers (those who reject both God and the world ruler) will be executed when they refuse to receive the signet (or mark) and worship the world ruler.
What sets this book apart from others like it is the coverage of the time after the Tribulation heading towards the final rebellion. What follows is like a fairy tale when viewed from the perspective of the world we now live in; however, one day events similar to what Hambleton has written will come to fruition.
"The Siege of Zion" is vivid and quite a gruesome accounting and is not a book to read to whittle away the time. Read at your own risk. It might change your life.

This book is a wonderful ending to the trilogy. I enjoyed it immensely. Be warned, as Mr. Hambleton does in the introduction, this book is gruesome! The author does a great job of depicting the second half of the tribulation, the Millennium, and finally, heaven. This book is a reminder to all followers of Christ that we must be living our lives as a testimony to Him. So often, we forget the urgency. This book really makes the reader examine how strong his or her beliefs really are. Again, Chris Hambleton writes a book that is impossible to put down.Was this review helpful?

Heart pounding; book 3 of Jacob's Trouble's Trilogy; do not pass it up
The Siege of Zion is book three of the trilogy of Jacob's Trouble by Christopher HambletonWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It is an engaging continuous story about the end of the times. It is rooted in Israel and the surrounding lands. It is about a Jewish family on their journey of discovering their spiritual roots through the tribulation. They are of Jewish origins and do not believe in the Messiah, the son of God and his promise to his children of him coming back until they are forced to escape from the doom of the Anti-Christ and his tyranny of controlling and destroying the masses for his Master Satan.
The endearing family and others in their final moments will have to decide which master and religion to accept. Do they obey for instant gratification or do they sacrifice everything even their lives to earn the privilege of the after-life to reside in eternal paradise. The anticipation of the characters' actions and decisions kept this reader breathless. Asking self if that final moment of truth came what would I do? There is a lot of exploration of beliefs and adventures as they follow their calling to help their families and humanity from being alienated and extinguish from the planet and battle the evil forces penetrating their existence.
There are very realistic graphic details in the story, but the possibility of the end of times such as this seems valid if an evil being is in control and he commands with fear, hatred and turmoil. He would think of such diabolical methods to put the fear of the master in their souls. He and his henchmen would plan to overtake humanity in this way and gradually defeat their hope of being rescued.
This author is very through and extracts the complex literature of the Holy Bible and like a prophet is able to write a series of books about the end of times that has the reader living on edge as they contemplate their choices in life if the prediction of Jesus was coming back is a possibility. The question is if they are ready to meet their creator or not? Or stay in denial and live in a fantasy world until it is too late.
If you need guidance and escapism into fantasy all the books in this series will help answer that question is it time for spiritual awakening or give you substance to ponder about. It is an eye opening experience you should not pass up. It is a fast action pack conclusion to an entertaining and informative trilogy.
