From the award-winning creators of “Final Exit” comes “The Gathering”, a powerful film about the “second coming” of Jesus Christ.
Michael Carrey is at the top of his marketing career, just coming off of his best year with the company. But his new found faith in Jesus Christ has left his coworkers and family worried that Michael has gone off the deep end and become a religious fanatic. Because of his new lifestyle and faith in Christ, both his marriage and career lies in jeopardy.
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:”
As is prophesied in the Old Testament of the Scriptures, men and women in the last days will begin to experience dreams and visions. Michael, his not-yet-believing wife, and his atheist mother-in-law all begin to experience frequent visions. For Michael, it is of a glorious rapture. For his wife and mother-in-law, futuristic looks into a frightening and strange post-rapture world.
“The Gathering” is a superbly produced film with a tremendous message. Strong and convincing acting from nearly all cast members and special computerized visual effects lend credibility to this timely presentation. This Christian film rivals secular videos in production quality, and the message is of utmost importance! For Christians, “The Gathering” drives home the importance of living as Christ desires and encourages us to tell others of salvation found only in Jesus. For not-yet-believers, the message is strong: Jesus is coming… is He coming for you?
