After a dramatic escape from death row, former FBI agent Adam Riley (David White) reunites with his friend and mentor Jacob Krause (Brad Heller) leader of The Way, and his small remnant of Christians. Little do they know the forces out for their destruction. Global Alliance leader Commander Fredericks (Monte Perlin) has forced Adam's former partner Charles Baker (Kevin Downes) to hunt them down while a ragtag militia, led by "Captain" Jackson (Lonnie Colon), spy on them for their own gain. As events lead to an explosive confrontation, all will be forced to an awakening of the real struggle... for their very souls.Written by
You're that FBI agent.
Former FBI agent.
That's funny. You don't look like a domestic terrorist.
[speaks in loud voice to Rex]
Does this man look like a domestic terrorist to you, Rex?
You know, Rex, what we have here is a travesty of justice. You speak your mind and look at what they do to you.
Yeah, well one day. "My time is in your hands. Deliver me from my enemies, and those that pursue me." Ain't that right, brother?

End times film makers have a field day with movies on the subject because the Bible is so vague on the subject that we've seen several different interpretations, often by the same film makers. The Damon and Affleck of Christian film makers Kevin Downes and David A.R. White have done a sequel to their 1999 film The Moment After with this one, The Awakening.
A lot has happened since that first film when we met Kevin Downes and David A.R. White who are just overloaded FBI agents with missing persons cases and in that film the cause is the biblically anticipated Rapture.
Now things have changed, there is now biblically anticipated global government with implanted computer chips and strict laws now about buying and selling to folks without chips and sellers can only use government sanctioned items. The rest is black market.
White has joined the Christian underground and Downes has been sent to find him. It's rumored White's joined a band led by Brad Heller whom it is alluded to as being a latter day John the Baptist. Christians are underground and persecuted, a whole lot like in Russia where gays have gone underground.
The guy leading the extermination squad is Monte Rex Perlin who really enjoys his work. Why he does is revealed at the end of the film.
Again like other Christian films if you're a believer it's one thing, if you don't buy into it it's another item all together. Whatever I write in a review will be rejected outright by one side or the other.
However I will say this, one of the things that has always annoyed me with fundamentalist Christians is their exaggerated idea of persecution. Forcing a baker in Oregon to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple is the same to them as some real genocidal policies carried out in places like Sudan. They really do think it's the same thing.
Together with that is moves for any kind of internationalism is seen somehow as the work of Satan. Those who believe that will love this film.
