    THE TRUE WITNESS OF REVELATION AND ENOCH by Billy Curtis

    THE TRUE WITNESS OF REVELATION AND ENOCH by Billy Curtis

    The True Witness of Revelation The Rising of the Son by Billy CurtisThe Book of Revelation (also called the Apocalypse of John, Revelation to John or Revelation from Jesus Christ) is the final book of the New Testament, and consequently is also the final book of the Christian Bible. Its title is derived from the first word of the Koine Greek text: apokalypsis, meaning “unveiling” or “revelation.” The Book of Revelation is the only apocalyptic book in the New Testament canon. Thus, it occupies a central place in Christian eschatology.About the AuthorI'm from Memphis, Tennessee. I was born into a poor, bad family, an award to the state at age nine. Not many things that can happen to me have not. I grew up in foster and group homes. For all intents and purposes, an unimportant white trash product of society. I had emotional issues most of my life. Only in finding the Lord have I found purpose and integrity, in the navy for four years, then became a welfare momma victim, a father of two and grandfather of one. No past family, no relations with my children, and no wife. I live alone with one dog, Ashley, a min pin-chihuahua mix. I married a girl from Ohio, a princess of society. So once married, I joined the Jehovah's Witnesses in 2008. Due to conduct, I realized that something wasn't right. I then became awake. I am disabled and all but homebound, spent the last four years online conducting the great commission and spiritual warfare, one of the world's only experts. As for work, I have done carpentry, ironwork, otr truck driving, and factory work. It is my work of twelve years that led me to life's road. If at all possible, I would like to place you on this same hope. My intention is to help establish God's kingdom on earth, provide for all true servants right up to the day of Armageddon, find a true wife, and live away from it all. I intend to use the royalties to finish my hedge, then sign it all away, all things being in common as the first-century bros did. Maybe grow a garden. Destroy the Watch Tower Society forever, the Vatican mother. See the joy on the faces of those who from this work WILL find the Lord.https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-true-witness-of-revelation-the-rising-of-the-son-billy-curtis/1139475115?ean=9781955691550https://www.billcur.com/http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/11322inf.mp3   Enoch-Satans war dogma against Christ by Billy CurtisBlessed are the eyes that read and are allowed by Yahweh God to be unveiled. This is a mandatory two-book series for all groups of mankind. This is the one and only true gospel suppressed to your injury. It was intended to be a three-book series. However, circumstances dictated it be two. Every scrap of dogma within is 100 percent correct without exception. No man can correct, only accept or reject it. Whether Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jew, atheist, Satanist, alternative lifestyle, military, demon, hybrid, or anything else, there are reasons for each of you to know as your lives depend upon it. You have the right to make fully informed decisions with your free will, also to change your minds at any time and the truth be there awaiting you. What is coming is the worst time in human history. Satan is required to give warning and now invoke that rule. Matthew 24:14 must be fulfilled before the end can come. “This” gospel (Gal. 1:8). We are on God’s time and no other. I have served you free for twelve years. I intend to take only what I need and use the rest to help humanity survive, being unable to buy or sell. Active true servants only. Also nature. Those who run this world want a one-world government. I am all for it—God’s kingdom. This is a leap of faith to that end, to charter a nonprofit and nation. Once I’ve recovered and set my hedge, I will be providing full transparency to all brothers worldwide, keep a 10 percent priest’s amount only if I even do that. Other than a possible accidental rewriting first-column citations, this two-bo

    UNIFIED PARTICLE THEORY by Gordon Stull

    UNIFIED PARTICLE THEORY by Gordon Stull

    Unified Particle Theory: The Concept by Gordon W. StullIn this book, Localized Motion Researcher; Gordon W. Stull lays out in clear terms the Unified Particle Theory, which posits that all of humanity--and indeed all of creation--is more interconnected than we may realize.Though it is a heady topic, Mr. Stull's use of language and metaphor brings the abstract into the realm of the understandable, grounding these high-minded concepts in imagery that the layman can appreciate. He goes on to suggest that the great mysteries of what brought the Universe into existence can be answered by the inclusion of God and, furthermore, that this vast interconnectedness is a result of Christ Jesus and the Kingdom of God being present in every person.Enjoyable for the naturalist and the spiritualist alike, Mr. Stull's Unified Particle Theory sheds light onto some of the great issues of our time, and promotes thoughtful consideration.About the AuthorBorn in Glendale, California, in 1955, Gordon W. Stull was actually raised in Missouri, where he still resides to this day. He has been interested in the great mysteries of the universe since he was a child - having researched the concept of infinity at age five! This passion made its way into a profession, as a small engine mechanic and pure motion researcher. Though the concept of infinity and the vastness of the universe has frightened him, he was always able to find solace in God; something which is clearly reflected in his work.https://www.amazon.com/Unified-Particle-Theory-Gordon-Stull/dp/1480932353http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/11322kpp.mp3

    THE BOOK OF THIEVES AND THE JOKER'S GAME by Summer Friesen

    THE BOOK OF THIEVES AND THE JOKER'S GAME by Summer Friesen

    THE BOOK OF THIEVES and the JOKER'S GAME by Summer FriesenInheriting a book from his father was not at all the responsibility Abell expected it to be. After his father's tragic death, Abell's suspicions grow as he learns about a new world of magic and danger. A world where magic means everything; from determining your wealth, political power, social status, and even friends from enemies. As power and corruption go hand-in-hand, Abell quickly learns that nothing in either worlds is as they seem and faces the decision of finishing his father's legacy, or not.The Book of Thieves has been a book I've been planning since my sophomore year of high school. As I grew older, the story also grew, changing with me. It started as just an outline and profiles of my characters, but then it slowly progressed to drafting specific scenes that needed to happen. It wasn't until nursing school that I wrote full chapters. Sometimes during lectures, too. Eventually, the puzzle pieces of Abell's story were painting out my original plan; a young boy that finds himself alone in the world inherits a book of magic that changes his life. Only later does he realize its importance.https://www.writersrepublic.com/bookshop/book-thieves-and-jokers-gamehttps://summerfriesen.com/http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/sfriesenwr.mp3

    HEAVEN ON EARTHA by Daisy M. Jenkins

    HEAVEN ON EARTHA by Daisy M. Jenkins

    Heaven on Eartha by Daisy M. JenkinsOn a historic space mission, five female American astronauts soar into the galaxy, only to discover that their intended destination has mysteriously changed to an unknown planet. They land on Planet Eartha, which is very similar to Planet Earth, except its population is 98 percent female and it's ruled by ten powerful female leaders known as Supreme Highnesses. These women use their superpowers as part of their mission to address concerns on Earth, including social injustice, mistreatment of underserved populations, religious hypocrisy, and exploitation of young girls.When the Supreme Highnesses decide to bring five of the worst offenders from Earth to Eartha for a period of reckoning, they designate the astronauts to help fulfill this mission. These five evil individuals, who become known as the Travelers, believe they are selected for the journey to Eartha through a lottery sponsored by America's National Space Center. They think they're the luckiest people on Earth -- until they arrive at their destination and discover what the Supreme Highnesses have planned for them. Will their sins come back to haunt them in painful, unimaginable ways? Can they even survive the retribution that awaits them on this powerful, unfamiliar planet?The ultimate lesson the Travelers learn is one that all people on Earth today would do well to heed: Never underestimate the power of women on a mission to bring justice to those who have used inequality and exploitation for personal gain.Daisy M.
