LATTER EXODUS FACTION

EVERY LIFE SAVED MATTERS

THIS MAINLY CHRISTIAN, HEBRAIC, AND MESSIANIC FACTION ALONG WITH OTHER PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT VIEWPOINTS HAVE BUILT UP A RESISTANCE FACTION. HIDING AMONG THE PUBLIC AND UNDERGROUND, THEY HAVE BEEN PREPARING TO LAUNCH A LARGE MILITARY OPERATION THAT WILL FULFILL A BIBLICAL PROPHECY THAT PROCLAIMS A SECOND EXODUS WHEN THE GREAT TRIBULATION BEGINS.

UNDERGROUND COALITION 

SURVIVE UNTIL THE END 

ORIGINATED FROM MAINLY THE REMAINS OF OPERATION LATTER EXODUS, THE FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL AND FOR THE LIVES OF INNOCENTS RUNNING FROM THE FEDERATION. THE COALITION MUST REMAIN UNDER THE RADAR TO MAKE IT IN THE MUCH WORSE SECOND HALF OF THE TRIBULATION. BEING FUGITIVES OF THE FEDERATION, LIFE FOR THESE PEOPLE INVOLVES A LOT OF LOOKING OVER THE SHOULDER, WONDERING IF THIS IS THE FINAL SECOND OF LIVING. 

IT IS BETTER TO DIE TRYING TO FLEE THAN TO SURRENDER TO THE FEDERATION.
