I Met Him in the Ladies’ Room Again (Part 2)

by Michelle Stimpson

Note: This novella is the sequel to “I Met Him in the Ladies’ Room”

Kerri Dalee is a Christianâ?¦most of the time. Well, maybe all of the time except she can’t seem to stick to her Bible-reading plan and she has less-than-holy incidents with the general public. The more she and her best friend, Stephanie, learn about what it means to follow Christ, the more their inadequacies shine.

After an impromptu trip to Vegas, Kerri and Stephanie return to Dallas feeling like even bigger failures. How can they “do” this Christian thing well? Is it even worth the struggle? And why does that chubby guy in Christian Education class want Kerri to “study” with him?

Follow Kerri and Stephanie in this much-anticipated sequel. After barreling through heartache, the “zombie” theory, and a crazy weekend that need not be mentioned ever again, they will finally discover hope as they learn that His plan for them is indeed good.



It’s a God Thing (The Powerful Results of Ministry Evangelism)

by Charles L. Roesel

He who has two tunics, let him give to him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise (Luke 3:11 NKJV).

A bold leader decided to follow Jesus’ teachings, resulting in a powerful ministry that has every member in his congregation serving the poor, the downcast, and the naked. Through this obedience to Scripture, his church grew from a small fifty-member congregation to a thriving, life-filled body of Christ-followers that is active in an astounding seventy ministries today.

Learn how your church can follow Jesus today, no matter your budget or how stale your current ministry “programs,” and in spite of opposition. Dr. Roesel overcame the overwhelming odds and proved that Jesus’ teachings are still valid today.

In this book:

– Dr. Roesel’s ministry – an incredible testimony of Ministry Evangelism

– Importance of discipleship – Jesus knew how to build a good foundation

– Leadership first – leaders must be pioneers, examples, and overcomers

– Money matters – how to avoid letting finances trip you up

– Getting started – ministry ideas that take off

It’s Just My Opinion

by Mohinder Goomar M.D.

It’s extremely hard to describe this book as it touches multiple aspects of human life as it exists on this planet. This book is extensively based on Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. What makes this book unique is in its explanation of this disorder. It clearly tries to connect the multiple personalities or the alters as nothing less than the spirits of the dead beings. How these beings living at those subtle planes that are invisible to the human senses create havoc in patients suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder.

The author is not postulating anything unusual. The latest DSM-5 (2013) published by American Psychiatric Association recognizes possession-form as a distinct form of the Dissociative Identity Disorder based upon ones culture or religion but it fails to recognize as a true causative factor. DSM-5 just accepts the reality of some religious and cultural practices that believe in possession.

But in author’s opinion that is based on his lifelong battle with Multiple Personality Disorder for at least 50 years. He gives keen insights into why almost all of the Multiple Personality Disorders are possession-form and they need not be related to any religious practices.

Unfortunately author expresses his opinion towards the highly sinister nature of this disorder is not only related to the patient but it goes much beyond that involving all the religions, major nations, any focused groups that are currently present or existed in the past. All of these are basically involved in the many disturbing events be that terrorists attacks, civil wars, wars among the nations, invasions of other countries, religious warfare, unexplainable events in one’s personal life, relationship destructions, financial catastrophes, diseases, accidents. In author’s personal opinion even the BP’s oil rig disaster was the product of these errant personalities with a vendetta that goes beyond any sense and logic to say the least.



Skinwalker Ranch : Path of the Skinwalker

by Ryan Skinner

For the past 7 years, Skinwalker Hunter – Ryan Skinner, has investigated bizarre events at Skinwalker Ranch. What Bigelow and his NIDs research team encountered after 2005 has not been shared with the public, until now. This book picks up with Ryan Skinner chronicling his up-to-date experiences at the Ranch as highlighted by his visual narration, alluring photos and videos of shocking events that actually happened. On numerous occasions he was threatened by balls of light which have given chase, mysterious voices speaking in the desert air, glowing objects were seen, shadow people stalked him (and others), portals opened, alien creatures emerged, and all this in vivid detail. The book culminates with Ryan meeting a shape shifting entity known as a “Skinwalker”. PATH OF THE SKINWALKER opens a gateway into the realities of an alternate universe; one which is beyond comprehension, beyond time and space, a place strictly off-limits to the public, a place known as Skinwalker Ranch.

The Quran: A Simple English Translation (Goodword Quran Translation)

by Goodword

The Quran, a book which brings glad tidings to mankind along with divine admonition, stresses the importance of man’s discovery of truth on both spiritual and intellectual planes.

Every book has its objective and the objective of the Quran is to make man aware of the Creation plan of God. That is, to tell man why God created this world; what the purpose is of settling man on earth; what is required from man in his pre-death life span, and what he is going to confront after death. The purpose of the Quran is to make man aware of this reality, thus serving to guide man on his entire journey through life into the after-life.

The main themes of the Quran are enlightenment, closeness to God, peace and spirituality. The Quran uses several terms, tawassum, tadabbur, and tafakkur, which indicate the learning of lessons through reflection, thinking and contemplation on the signs of God scattered across the world. The present translation of the Quran and its explanatory notes are written keeping in mind these very themes.

God Told Me: Who to Marry, Where to Work, Which Car to Buy…And I’m Pretty Sure I’m Not Crazy

by Jim Samra

Does an infinite and all-powerful God really care about the everyday concerns of people? Jim Samra answers with an unequivocal and enthusiastic “Yes!” in this guide to hearing God’s direction in everything. From the trivial and mundane to the life-changing, God cares about it all because it concerns his creatures, his creation, and his kingdom.

In this unique book, Samra unpacks biblical passages and shares fascinating and surprising true stories about God’s guidance, encouraging readers to keep up a running conversation with their creator, to search for guidance in Scripture, and to pay attention to apparent coincidences. Readers who want to make godly decisions about the big things (where to live, where to go to school, where to work, who to marry) and the seemingly little things (which car to buy, which song to sing in church, who to talk to, what to say) will find a gifted and encouraging guide in Samra.



Ada, Legend of a Healer

by R.A. McDonald

No sickness, No injuries, No pain, No limits.

If you had the power to heal, what would you do?

For fifteen-year-old Ada discovering that she can heal feels more like a curse than a gift. When she learns of the mystery surrounding her mother’s disappearance, and sees the indifference of so-called friends, she sets out for Paris to find her.

The power to heal protects her, but also has her hunted by a man who sees her as nothing more than his fountain of youth. Ada realizes her true power is her will to survive, and that her only chance at freedom is to become the best at escaping.



And He Healed Them All

by Jeffrey McClain Jones

The story opens with James, the narrator, on his weekly visit to his old professor, Walter Schrader. Walter is recovering from a stroke in a convalescent home. There, instead of the fading form of his old friend that he expects, James finds his mentor animated by a dream he had the night before.

Unlike any other dream he has ever had before, Walter’s dream transports him to another place and time. There he witnesses what the Gospel writers merely summarize in a few words: thousands of people gathering from around the ancient Middle East, bringing all sorts of illnesses and injuries, and Jesus healing them all. As Walter watches, blind men receive sight, cripples walk, the deaf hear, a man’s arm sprouts a missing hand, and the dead come back to life.

On this hillside in the Mediterranean wilderness, thousands coalesce to receive a healing touch from the teacher, whose fame has run far ahead of him. Simple people in tattered rags, ornate dancers from the king’s court, rabbis and pagan magicians, Zealots and Roman soldiers, all carry their sickness and pain to this teacher, and he heals all of them. Compassionate eyes and gentle hands greet every human being that is willing to bring their need to him.

Each chapter retells a single dream. Together the twelve dreams form the story of a single day in which Jesus welcomes all those who come to him. In telling his dreams to the narrator, Walter interprets the strange and outrageous events summarized so briefly in the Gospels. Through the course of those dreams we find entry into the lives of many who received a life-changing touch on that one day. We also learn about the hearts and minds of Walter and his two listeners.

Jillian Moore, the staff psychiatrist at the convalescent home, becomes an active listener along with the narrator, as Walter’s dreams instigate a life-changing bond between them. The process of listening to the telling of the dreams, along with reconsidering the life and work of Jesus, plants new faith in their hearts. But nothing stirs them more than the unexpected recovery Walter makes from his devastating stroke.

We join the modern listeners at the beginning and end of each dream narrative. But most of the story’s pages narrate the miraculous work of the teacher. We see his rugged disciples serving as his body guards. We witnesses the way that healing human bodies gives wing to human souls. The teacher heals many by only briefly touching them, so he can reach as many as possible in a day. But he often stops to draw the sick and wounded into his loving eyes, that they might feel the shelter of his acceptance and discover their own value.

As the day wears on, the teacher’s human body begins to feel the effect of wrestling with demoniacs, touching and embracing so many whose physical ailments have infected their emotions as well as their bodies. From being propped by his friends, to sitting quietly as people pass by and touch the hem of his robe, the one who heals thousands loses strength as he gives all that he has to people in need.

When the dreams cease, Walter has welcomed a new richness to his faith, and has prepared for his departure from this life in a way that he never dared hope. At the end of the story, James and Jillian look back together at what they learned with, and from, Walter and hold onto each other as they claim their own renewed faith.



Life Unbolted; A Journey Back to the Starting Line of Life

by Patrick Detscher

Life Unbolted is both a memoir and a challenging lifestyle.

We can only reach the finish line if we dare to venture onto the starting line. There are many paths one might take in the course of a lifetime, and the path back to the starting line of life is, perhaps, the most elusive.

To return to the time when tiny winglets sprouted from your shoulders, allowing for a departure from the nest, into the sky to meet your destiny requires faith, determination, and endless amounts of patience. You also need a burning desire to wander unbolted beyond the sometimes jaded expectations of others.

The journey was long, needed and sometimes brutal. The result, however, was a recharged life, which allowed me to emerge completely refreshed, optimistic and filled with enough strength, speed and desire to pick a fight with the forces of greed.

One of the many gifts of this journey was a vision of how to lay an adaptive foundation for the coming generation – that is, an entirely new way of looking at energy. I call the plan, “Entity-Specific Power,” a rather mundane title for something that could change the entire way we generate and supply energy.

The other gift – the greatest one – was learning that a life of faith begins with eyes closed, placing one foot in front of another, and walking forward believing that you will be guided â?¦ and since life is short, there’s no better time than right now to start.

I hope you will step inside and join me on that journey.

End of the World: The Torah Predictions

by David Zephaniah

This book is intended mainly for the Jews who lost their ways and became liberal. Reading this book will show them that there is a purpose to this thing we call life. The purpose is much grander than any human can ever imagine. Some of these curious Jews (or other intelligent people) might find out that this life can be so much better than it seems.

I myself lived a liberal life for a while, imitating all the other people of the land, with materialism, idol worship and pointless pursuits. Until one day a year ago I had a spiritual awakening. I got up in the morning thirsty for knowledge, and I went on a journey of study. I have found out that all the things that our ancestors were saying all these years are to be true. I found out that G-d is true and realized how He works in His mysterious ways.

At that point I changed my lifestyle completely and become an observant Jew. I have to tell you that I have found true happiness, tranquility and peace of mind that I never had before. Those are the notions that money can’t buy.

I want to share my knowledge with you. This way I feel that I’m fulfilling higher purpose in life. I feel that this is my calling.

Can I Be Frank?

by Rob Wyatt

All author proceeds from the sale of this book are being donated to the Capital Area Food Bank, Austin TX.  Thanks for your support.

This humorous novel follows a young, English, Catholic priest to his first parish in America. Father Francis discovers that occasional attendance at church youth clubs, years of study at a seminary, and a love of The Dukes of Hazzard television show, have done little to prepare him for his new life. Women appear to view his vow of chastity merely as a challenge, and Gene Charmois, local bigwig and bullyboy, simply wants to add Frank to his portfolio. Despite the advice of Father William, the wisecracking Vicar General (and sometimes because of it), Frank unwittingly makes an enemy of Gene Charmois. The young priest becomes the subject of disturbing, if unfounded rumours, and soon finds himself without income, a congregation, or the support of his diocese.

With the help of his parish administrator, an atheistic doctor, and a local judge-cum-secondhand car dealer, Frank uncovers distinctly dodgy, dangerous and illegal goings-on down on the farm–Gene Charmois’ farm. What starts out as a mission of mercy to rescue a group of exploited migrant workers, turns into a major government investigation.

Devotions: 28 Thoughts From John’s Letters

by Jim Head

Devotional thoughts from 1, 2, & 3 John.



Some Narrow Views

by Michael Hearing

With nearly
1.2 billion members worldwide and dealing with underlying, fundamental
realities, the Catholic Church is big. But because we are finite, fallen
creatures, we have trouble seeing very much of this Big Thing. That’s why each of
us needs to hear what the rest of us have to say about what we see.


If you have
an interest in Church matters and provocative writing, then Some Narrow Views is for you. It’s meant
to goad readers to thought and action in an entertaining way. See if it does
that . . .



Excerpt:

Chesterton once said something like this: “Anything
worth doing is worth doing badly.” Which, of course, was just his
inimitable way of saying that anything worth doing is worth doing by all of us.
If a thing is worth doing, then it should be attempted by anyone and everyone,
not just by those who have had some special training. Things like being a
friend, raising children, and deciding how to govern ourselves are far too
important to be left to the experts alone. These kinds of things are so
important that we must all attempt them and risk doing them badly.


And this goes especially for catechesis.

We can see where leaving it to the experts lands us just by
taking a look at public schools and the Supreme Court. Control of the schools
has been given over to the experts, and in no other field do we find so many
untested theories and dubious social-engineering experiments tried out on young
and unsuspecting patients. And then there’s the Supreme Court, where the
worship of specialization – lawyering in this case – has had its most dire
effects.


This small branch of the government has, it seems, usurped
the powers granted to another branch because we have left all constitutional
matters up to the experts. A certain case in which the Supreme Court struck
down the expressed will of the people of Nebraska first comes to mind. I have
even coined a term to describe this phenomenon: “enneacracy.” The
experts have done these things for us – and have done them very badly.



A Heart Abandoned

by Allison Herrin

Are there events from your past you wish you could change? Do you have a less-than-perfect history that seems to be haunting you? A Heart Abandoned exposes some of the biggest lies women are faced with, and the connections they have to the past. It shows women how to choose a life of freedom, in spite of how horrible the past may have been. Allison, a victim to her own past that held her in bondage, did anything she could to find happiness. Nothing was off limits. She found herself at age 32, after a very hard life, in the midst of a divorce, homeless with three children and paralyzed by the overwhelming sense of worthlessness that had become horribly familiar. She was emotionally numb and spiritually unresponsive. At rock bottom, there was nowhere else to turn except to God. A Heart Abandoned examines how letting go of your past can reclaim your future. You can live in complete freedom knowing that EVERYTHING: past, present and future, is in the capable hands of a loving God.



BEYOND THE NATURAL: THEORIES OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT (DECONSTRUCTING POST-MODERN ETHICS)

by Robert J. King

Theological, philosophical, and modern psychological approaches to moral development can be described historically, analytically, and empirically. Key questions posed to St. Ignatius of Loyola’s moral formation are how does Ignatian spiritual direction presuppose a pre-modern historical worldview, and how is it consonant with later Enlightenment moral philosophical approaches? Jean Jacques Rousseau’s theory is evaluated with specific attention to his understanding of human nature’s intrinsic goodness. Immanuel Kant’s theory is evaluated for his contradistinction against Rousseau’s optimism concerning human goodness. Lawrence Kohlberg’s theory is evaluated as an example of a modern re-appropriation of nature with Carol Gilligan offering specific attention to gender-specific biological determinism. Finally, Sharon Parks is read as a reintegration of theological and philosophical sources with modern developmental psychology.

The Winds of Change

by Thomas Poteet

Dealing with the sickness and death of a loved one is difficult enough. Add a job that is no longer rewarding or satisfying and children who are about to leave the nest and you have a recipe for shutting down and looking inward.

In The Winds of Change, Tom Poteet takes us on a journey of discovery through his poetry. He looks at the loss of his father, who is deeply loved and admired, while studying the decline in mental attitude that life can bestow when negative feelings overcome hope. The author then uses his early morning meditative time to access the power of prayer and the love of nature; which enable him to move from inward destruction to creativity. With the Love of God and support from his family and friends, the author is then able to climb out of his abyss and face life, which is always full of the challenges it gives us.

Poteet takes the reader on a journey from “I don’t think I can take anymore” to “Yes, I can”. It is a sobering journey that is almost overwhelmed by the loss of a trusted parent; one who willingly shares his wisdom and some really good laugh-out-loud stories. Few want to see their parents depart and take on the responsibility of leading their own families. It’s even tougher when we aren’t satisfied as to where we are in life and feel we can do so much more. But, of course, losing a parent isn’t the end of our lives and need not signal the beginning of the end. It is up to us to learn from the experience (as Tom’s dad so wisely states, “It’s all a part of growing up.”) and move on to a fuller life.

The Winds of Change moves the reader from desperation to hope and leaves us with some poems that can be read over and over again no matter where we are in our journey.

Bible Study #62 Life and Letters of Paul Series-2 Corinthians (Bible Study With John Ogwyn)

by John Ogwyn

“We are into the book of 2 Corinthians this

evening. Let’s understand a little bit about the

background. We have already addressed some

of this in our study on 1 Corinthians. The

background of the cities is the same. There is a

similarity in terms of the background of the book

because they were written within close proximity

of one another.

Let’s go to Acts 18, 19 and 20 because I think it

is good that we understand how we can date

some of these particular books. Last time we

saw that Paul had remained in Corinth for about

eighteen months (Acts 18:11). Then, verse 21, he

was anxious to keep the Feast in Jerusalem. This

would have been the Feast of Tabernacles 52

A.D. He left so as to arrive in Jerusalem in time

for the fall festival. He landed at Caesarea, went

up (“up” is an expression referring to going to

Jerusalem) and saluted the Church and then,

verse 22, went back down to Antioch.

He spent some time there. He would have,

undoubtedly, been wintering there. Normally,

winter was a difficult time to travel either

overland or by sea. The weather became more

unpredictable and traveling was more difficult,

so he stayed in Antioch. Antioch was sort of

Paul’s headquarters of the Gentile work. He

wintered there the winter of 52 A.D.â??53 A.D.

Then, Acts 18:23, we find that he left and went…” Read More!!



Bible Study #63 Life and Letters of Paul Series-Romans (Bible Study With John Ogwyn)

by John Ogwyn

“We are getting into the book of Romans this

eveningâ??moving through our Bible study series.

This is the halfway spot in this series of the Life

and Letters of Paul. After this evening, we will

be halfway through this particular series. We are

focusing this evening on Paul’s letter to the

Romans.

Rome was the capital of the Roman Empire. It

was the great city of the ancient world. At the

time of Paul, Rome had a population in excess of

1.2 million. It was the largest city that existed up

until modern times. I think London surpassed

this population somewhere around 1800. London

was the next city to reach this sort of population.

Rome went into a decline in later years. During

the period of the Middle Ages, the population

was dramatically lower than this. After the

decline of the Roman Empire, it was all the way

up into the 1800s before London, and later Paris,

reached a population of this magnitude.

Rome was a sizable city. A city of a little over a

million people is a large population. Rome had a

population about like Houston, Texasâ??only it

was more compact. You’d have trouble getting

around in Houston if you had to depend on

horses and chariots. Even in being more

compact, it was a big place. With that many

people together, it still had to be somewhat

spread out because you didn’t have the multi-…” Read More!!



Does My Life Belong to Me (Think Outside the Box)

by Sha’Ra On WindWalker

These books contain a form of free verse poetry, essays, short stories, thoughts, opinions based on observation, and some humour and imagination, engaging the heart as well as the mind. A critical look at many current issues intriguing and plaguing man. Spirituality, interaction with nature and environment, social changes, dwindling resources. Well worn issues now, indeed. But the poetry and other works in these books gives this subject a different perspective. I daresay that here we can find a “higher” vantage point from which to look at ourselves within the cosmos.

Who knows but some of the ideas in the books may get you inspired to do that thing you always wanted to do, even if this comes in a very small way, to make your corner of this world a better place to be in. Who knows but you may realize your little corner is a really nice place to be in after all.

It’s all about life, if at times expressing life “outside the box” as the saying goes.

Every Moment Is The Best Moment: The Essence of Enlightenment

by David Tuffley

‘Every Moment is the Best Moment’ is for anyone seeking a richer, deeper experience of life beyond our pre-occupation with material wealth and consumerism. There is nothing wrong with having a good standard of living, but when wealth and status becomes an end in themselves, we have lost sight of what is most important in life. This eBook is a short how-to guide that can help you to cultivate a higher awareness while continuing to live in the world.

â??

The phrase ‘every moment is the best moment’ is the essence of Enlightenment. It captures the feeling you have when you are so fully engrossed in the moment that you have no thought for anything else. The barriers between your inner and outer worlds dissolve and you feel a sense of connectedness with everything.

Every moment is the best moment because it is the only moment. Moments recalled from the past, or anticipated in the future are products of your imagination. They have no substance in the outer world.

The challenge is to feel this way about the ordinary things in your life, the things that many would consider mundane or even unpleasant. The enlightened person learns how to take great satisfaction in doing one thing at a time, focussing their full attention upon it and getting into a state of â??Flow’ (discussed in more detail later). They understand that the virtue is not so much in what you are doing, but how you are doing it.

The Hands Imposition of Healing

by Akila M. Ramses

Although not always easy to understand, our divine essence tends to rise to obstacles and experiences that life offers, and which are simply lessons we must learn.

Negative feelings or low self-esteem inhibit the flow of spiritual energies into the physical reality which not only hurts the ego but also the physical body. Dysfunctional mental and emotional patterns hinder the movement of energy through the chakras so that equilibrium is altered.

Victims of our erroneous belief systems, perceptual blocks are created and not let the flow of higher divine consciousness inspire our lives. As we dissociate from our spiritual roots, we are prisoners of the many insidious forms of “malaise” that civilization has created . Many of these diseases are reflections of the struggle to rediscover our divine nature. And each of those is a step that must be overcome in the upward march toward spiritual evolution.



Life’s Sign’s

by Robert Rudolph

Since we were not born with a manual telling us how to live our lives, I believe there might be another way to help guide us along if we know what to look for. I am talking about a practical approach to life that most of us already use every day, but we may not be aware of it because we may use it on a more subconscious level. I learned of this approach from a very early age as a result of being physically and emotionally abused on an almost daily basis. I was beaten and then thrown into the basement where I made up my own little world as a way to pass time. For me life became a battlefield where I had to learn to survive. I had begun to be able to sense things ahead of time in order to know what was coming my way and allowed me to brace myself for the coming abuse. My senses were constantly on the alert. I had begun to develop a kind of sixth sense. Eventually I began to look at the world around me in a different way; I had begun to look at Life’s Signs.



Mu-Ha-mmad Mut-Ha-Maat

by Michael Meade

In this brief hard-hitting ebook you will find out information that has been covered up and deliberately kept from the people for thousands of years. For example, Muhammad and Islam didn’t start in the Middle East it started in East Africa, in the Ancient Egyptian city called Thebes, known locally as Waset. Commune-ism and Nazi Socialism with the Christian Swastika Cross didn’t start in Russia, Germany or Europe it started in Thebes/Waset in Ancient Egypt home of the Was Scepter. Most people think the origin of Jesus was in Jerusalem and Bethlehem but it actually started in Thebes/Waset along with Muhammad.

You will be amazed to find out that all of this evil being perpetrated on the world started in East Africa, Ancient Egypt thousands of years ago by all of those people claiming to be victims and oppressed when it was their ancestors who were the victimizers and oppressors. It doesn’t stop there because the brutal Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Empire didn’t start in Europe but goes directly back to East Africa as well. By the time you are done reading this book you will know the truth about the past.

What is Islam

by Goodword / Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

The concept of God in Islam provides man with an ideology in which loss is turned to gain and in which adversity brings with it good tidings. And it is in submission to God and living a God­oriented life that man finds complete fulfilment and purpose of life.

When he discovers God and worships Him, when he remembers Him, when his mind is turned towards Him with full concentration, when he makes a request or a plea, he establishes a contact with his Creator.

In the words of the Hadith, at that particular moment he comes to whisper with his Lord. He has the tangible feeling that he is pouring his heart out to God and that God in turn is answering his call. He starts receiving inspiration from God. This is the beginning of living a God­Oriented Life and the development of a positive personality.



GOD’S TEMPLE IN PROPHECY A VISION OF THE WORLD TOMORROW

by Leroy Neff

“We live in an amazing and yet frightening age. These times are unlike any since man was put on the earth. In an age when mankind is in special need of God we find man has cut himself off from God. He is cut off from the only source that can tell him of things to come.

Without the correct knowledge of Bible prophecies, only uncertainty and doubt face the inquiring mind. To avoid the unpleasantness of thinking about events to come – of possible world annihilation, most people in the Western world have resorted to pleasure and material goods to gratify the desires of the flesh. Man wants to hide from the realities that lie immediately ahead.

The man who has put his trust in God looks on beyond this present evil and upset world. He looks past the soon-coming catastrophes to the world tomorrow. That new world will bring peace and happiness for the whole world. It will bring abundance and prosperity to all mankind.

The Pillars in God’s Temple

Just as Daniel wrote (Daniel 12:4), knowledge has been increased in this time of the end. Part of the knowledge which God has increased concerns the many prophecies of the Bible.

God has promised that the overcomer of the Philadelphia era of God’s Church will become a “pillar” in the temple of God (Rev. 3:12).

This is speaking symbolically of a position of authority in the headquarters of the world, which will be at a new Temple to be built in Jerusalem. Do you know where the pillars are located in God’s temple? Most people know that there are two large pillars that stand in front of the temple, but are they the physical types of the offices to which Christ refers?

The saints of this era who do overcome and endure to the end will be right at this temple of God. They will be here for the one thousand year period, and even on through the following one hundred year period (Is. 65:17-25). If you are one of God’s faithful saints in this age, you will be assigned at the temple for this whole period. Here is an opportunity for you to have described, right now from your own Bible the description of that wonderful place, God’s Temple in prophecy. “



My Mystical Past Life

by Venu Murthy M. K.

This is a highly readable personal journal of how destiny mystically designs circumstances, from planting a seed of Near Death Experience, Reincarnation and such, then nurturing these ideas with the conviction of personal experience and finally integrating it all under the expert guidance of Dr. Brian Weiss.

Below are few words from an eminent author and publisher introducing this book:-

The book starts in a very dramatic way and from the very first sentence draws you immediately to the series of events those are going to unfold. As you read along the book, the kindness of an American African touches your heart. Dr. Brian Weiss comes in front of you alive. You yourself really start hearing Dr. Weiss speak. There is a touch of humour also in the narrative to enliven you and lot of wisdom pours in. You will surely love this book. Well, here is the book itself in your hand. Go ahead and experience it for yourself.

I always felt within my heart, the mystical side of Venu’s personality. He is one of the rare individuals, who love to read great books and absorb the noble ideas and ideals contained in them. He is truthful, sincere to the core in his quest for God and has passed through amazing range of experiences in his life which makes him a very good channel of goodness and compassion through past life therapy.

I have not found many persons with such pure, altruistic motives that Mr. Venu Murthy carries in his heart.

The book has been dedicated at the holy feet of the all pervading eternal master of the universe. I bow down to that Guru and offer my salutations to that eternal master along with Venu Murthy.

This narrative is written with noblest of the motives. It is highly readable and as you read along, you won’t feel you are reading a book, you will be travelling and experiencing everything that happens along with the author!!!!!

And it will be a harbinger of a change in many people’s lives.

May the blessings of God be showered on all those who read it and on all those who come in contact with Venu Murthy is my earnest prayer to God and Guru Deva.

– Divakar B.R.

******************************************

Strange that things which are mystical happen even, in the lives of Software Engineers! While the former is for the highly developed right brain, the latter demands an exploding amount of left brain activity!

Venu Murthy wonders on how mystical his journey has beenâ??from being a techie who bangs his head on computers, to being a Past Life Regression Therapist, systematically trained by the master on this subject Dr. Brian Weiss M.D, the ever compassionate Masters and his year old cute little daughter!
