Former History Professor Carves Niche As Gritty Novelist Jul 28, 2005
In this long-awaited sequel to his rockum-sockum end time's thriller--The Great Harpazo Deception--Messianic Jew and former University of Arizona Professor Stephen M. Yulish tells the story of Professor Harry Jacobson, his wife and students, and the sudden chaos of missing Christians around the globe. Where the first book ended with the triumph of believers disappearing into the heavens during the Feast of Trumpets, the second book provides a terrifying glimpse into what could happen following that Harpazo... when all Hell breaks lose on earth... literally.
So you think missing the `rapture' of the Church is a good idea? You agree with the Christ-hating crowd that the world will be one big party after the Christians are gone? Well think again! Plains, trains, and automobiles suddenly without pilots! Smallpox, earthquakes, nuclear war, and we're just getting started! The planned invasion of Israel described in the Book of Ezekiel begins, a Third Temple descends from the heavens, the 144,000 are sealed; everything unravels barn-fire fast in Stephen Yulish's second work, and for the serious Bible student or lover of great fiction it's the kind of reading that is truly hard to put down.
Yet if you think you know where this story is going, you've got some surprises coming. Yulish is crisp and clear, his writing style even better than the first time around, and I told him so. His description of the novel's wealthy biogenics lab owner--Dr. Sam Armilus--puts the `c-r-e-e-p-y' in creep! If you know what I mean. Masquerading as a biotech savior, Armilus actually wants to crucify the entire Jewish race!
Then there's that almost mythical reappearing of Azazel, the evil god of fortresses from the first novel. He too is richly detailed without being overwritten. He floats in and out of the story line like a phantasmagoric wraith from a Steven King novel, while a dizzying array of narrative viewpoints unfold around him.
Soon the plot thickens, and Professor Jacobson-a once proud comparative-religions professor-finds himself in Israel with his wife and students. Facing a reign of terror by forces bent on enslaving the entire world, a terrible and destructive confrontation ensues on all sides before dispossessed spirits challenge the angels of God.
Now Armilus prepares to ride into Jerusalem on a white horse, to claim the city of God for himself. The 144,000 Jewish evangelists, sealed wiith the seal of God, scatter at the sight of him. Bible prophecy weaves back and forth until finally the chilling cabal reaches its catastrophic, suspense-filled ending.
This is how great end time's novels are written! This is the mystery of the end game, the terror... and the triumph... of Invasion: Israel!

"Invasion: Israel" by Stephen Yulish
Book Review: raptureready.com Terry James
Stephen Yulish's new novel, "Invasion:Israel" comes right at you as did his first novel, "The Great Harpazo Deception". There are few distractions and breaks in the action that give the book the quick cuts of a Hollywood production. The images that he creates in the reader's eye are mesmerizing in their vividness considering the fact most are horrific and bloody as they portray the chaotic world that exists after the Christians have been taken away. We witness airplanes crashing, cars smashing into one another, surgeons disappearing during operations. Then the real terrorism begins as Tel Aviv and Los Angeles are attacked with smallpox, and the Statue of Liberty and the Washington Monument are blown up. Israel nukes Damascus, and earthquakes ravage the planet.
All of this is seen through the eyes of the main protagonist, Harry Jacobson, a Jewish Comparative Religion professor and his wife Rachel the daughter of a Black Baptist minister. Their dialogue throughout is one of a few humorous occasions in this otherwise despairing tale of hopelessness. The President and Vice President are gone as is the Pope and the Prime Minister of Israel. It is interesting how Yulish shows how many whom you might think would be gone are not and many who you thought would be left behind are gone.
Another main character, Dr. Sam Armilus, is President of Biogenetics and comes up with a cure for HIV/AIDS and is worshipped worldwide. This homosexual, Jewish born tyrant calls for the crucifixtion of all the world's Jews. Armilus, the demonic entity from his first book who convinces the world that it abducted the Christians into UFOs rather than that Christ took them, beheads anyone who even mentions the name of Christ. Eventually, Professor Jacobson, Rachel and all the Jews left alive in America are transported to Israel as the Muslim nations unite and plan a tank invasion of Israel from the north as described in Ezekiel 38. The Third Temple appears just in time for the man of lawlessness to take his place as the 144,000 are anointed.
There is so much happening so quickly in this novel that you might want to read it again to get it all. Yulish is a Messianic Jew who adds a bit of Yiddish humor to the book all the while maintaining that Jesus is the only way to the Father.
