The Messiah Chronicles: Book 1 by , Summary

When Arielle, a new immigrant to Israel, sees a poster announcing the coming of the Messiah, she feels compelled to raise people's awareness about it in any way she can. She starts by interviewing people, follows an old Chassid who is putting up more signs, and gets involved in promoting the rally where the Messiah is to be revealed. Little does she know that this day will change her life, setting her on an exploration of her beliefs and her commitment to the path she's chosen. A handsome young Chassid she meets the day of the rally, Aryeh, goes through changes of his own, choosing to leave the insular world he’d grown up in. David, a former Chassid who has chosen to leave the fold and expand his horizons, is of Davidic descent. His Uncle Yehoshua, a Holocaust survivor, believes himself to be the Messiah and plans to let the world know at a rally in Jerusalem. Yehoshua has been excommunicated by his Chassidic sect, including most of his family. Though David isn’t sure if it's true, he is willing to do whatever he can to help his uncle. When Aryeh and Arielle meet again at a Shabbat dinner, they feel a strong bond. As they get to know each other and their relationship develops, Aryeh introduces her to his new friends, David and Miri, and a world of spirituality she hadn't known existed.

In 1994, after five years back in the United States, a dream Miri has leads them back to Israel for a visit, which will allow them to realize a longtime dream.

Out There Search for the Messiah by Leonard Holst Summary

DANIEL, book of mysterious dates and future events has been the concern of serious Bible students for thousands of years. Its predictions have challenged the church and the world. Exciting reading too. Remember "Daniel in the lion's den"? "OUT THERE, SEARCH FOR THE MESSIAH" is different from most books in that it endeavors to simply describe what the book says. Daniel's prophecies of the coming of Messiah are the most dramatic to be found in all of Scripture. The coming of Jesus, the Messiah, is predicted more than 500 years before it happened. The future of the world and the church is also described in most disturbing detail. Daniel is important to every person who is concerned about the future. The book proves beyond doubt that the Jesus Christ who appeared on earth 2,000 years ago, is the one and only true Messiah, and He is out there preparing for a visit to the planet earth IN THE NEAR FUTURE!

The Messiah’S Imminent Return by DeLinda N. Baker Summary

Throughout both the Old and New Testament, there are numerous prophecies pointing to the return of the Messiah in power and glory. In the early church, a prevailing message was Jesuss promise to return in the clouds. The knowledge that the Messiah would someday return and deliver Israel and the saints from the evils of this world has been a tremendous source of encouragement over the ages. The questions have been and continue to be, When will Jesus return? Have the signs of his return been fulfilled? Is the Messiahs return imminent? In this book, we will explore the scriptures that outline the signs that will precede the return of Jesus Christ in power and glory. In addition to looking at scriptures on the topic, we will look at current and historical events that may be significant. Also, we will ask how this impacts Christians and how we should respond. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable of a bridegroom and ten virgins. The bridegrooms return was delayed so that the wedding party became drowsy and fell asleep. When he returned late in the night, only those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast. The others were left behind. As Christians, we need to be ready for Jesuss return. Come prepared to dig deep into scriptures and look forward to Jesuss return!

God's Plan of the Ages Volume 4: King Ahaz to Messiah by Paul A. Lindberg Summary

Many have tried to tell Bible stories as historical fiction. But I have attempted to tell the entire story of the universe, starting with the Bible and integrating history and chronology, legend, and ancient Talmudic tradition, along with a good deal of speculation. My story begins before time, and continues past the ages of time into eternity. It is an adult work, for some of mankind's descent into depravity cannot be sanitized. But it is also a fun work, as I bounce around from our perspective up to the heavenly realms and even down into hell itself. My purpose was not just to tell the story, but also to teach wisdom and to clarify the nature and character of God. I trust each reader will grow in relationship to the God of infinite love, as I have grown in the writing. Volume Four begins with the Kingdom of Judah sinking into idolatry under young King Ahaz, son of good King Jotham, who was blind to his son's idolatry. It carries the story clear through the Assyrian conquest of northern Israel, the Babylonian conquest of Judah, the Persian Empire, the Macedonian Greek Empire, the Maccabees, and the Roman Empire, ending just before the coming of Messiah to Earth.

The 200Th Messiah by Chayym Zeldis Summary

THE 200TH MESSIAH tells the story of Alan Tate and his wife, Margie, an American Christian couple in their 60's, who arrive in Israel with their church group, but go off on their own. In the Old City of Jerusalem, Margie, struck in the head by a stone, is rushed to the hospital, where she hovers between life and death in a coma. Alan's reaction leads to his arrest and subsequent transfer to a psychiatric facility. Dr. Schechter tries to bring Alan out of his "psychotic episode;" Dr. Ben-Ami believes that Alan is a victim of the "Jerusalem Syndrome;" Dr. Shmuel Hadashi takes a desperate gamble to rescue Alan from his despair. THE 200TH MESSIAH deals with evil, love, loss, vengeance and--ultimately--the question, "Who is sane?"

Introduction to Coming of Messiah Vol 1 & 2 While reading the book "The Crowned Christ," by Frederick W. Grant he made mention of these volumes of "Coming of Messiah." So I went in search for them and found them in scanned PDF format using OCR software. (Poor copies).This book was originally published prior to 1923 and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters, and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into a digital (epub) format as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical books in epub format. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher. With this republishing of the "Coming of Massiah," everyone can have this wonderful work in their digital library at this low cost.I have spent many hours on this work and have recovered most of the original work.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

The Mystery of the Messiah by Frederick Guttmann Summary

What means to be 'the Messiah'? «Messiah is, in the Abrahamic religions, the descendant King of David, promised by the prophets to the Hebrew people; that man filled with the Holy Spirit of God. Throughout history there were many people who were considered Messiahs, but it is generally understood that this particular title is assigned to the chosen messenger of God, who will bring peace to mankind by establishing the Kingdom of God.» (Wikipedia) The concept of an expected Savior is common in many cultures, and is understood as a response to the injustices and evils of the world that humanity itself as a society has not come to resolve. Such an idea has a huge force that it is even used to refer to devilish figures: the Antichrist of Christianity or Dajjal of Islam, would be a kind of deceiving Messiah, a false liberator who actually using witchcraft and Satanism would deceive humanity before the end of time. According to these perspectives, a semi-divine man would be the light of the world and his supernatural guidance, but there would be at least another figure in his likeness, but at an antagonistic level. In any case, humanity would be waiting for a superhuman being to save them from their misfortunes, free to the world of evil and injustice, and bring a new era, one of peace, harmony and happiness. «Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yaheveh ...» (Tehilim 118:26) I respect the believes of all creations of God, so I´ll try to start this research using any kind of source that I consider related to the subject in question. So, from thousands of years ago there seemed to be a great awareness throughout the globe of the need for prophets to spiritually guide peoples and belief in a future remarkable man that would emphasize on the humanity. The Persian prophet Zarathustra (Zoroaster) was defined as "redeemer and savior" sent from God, not considering himself the only nor the last, and is believed to have announced the coming of an exemplary man who would come in the name of God, after him, and Which would lead men to the path of truth; The ancient Buddhas announced the coming of a future one, the Maitreya, that many confuse with modern personalities; The Mayans, Aztecs, Incas and Jopi announced the return of the "wise man" who was once with them, who would guide the race of the Earth towards the path of righteousness and unity, brotherhood and peace; The Muslims say that Muhammad (Mohammed) announced the return of Yeshua ha.Notzri (Jesus Christ) for the days of the coming struggle between the Mahdi and the Dajjal (Antichrist); The Jews - in a general context – believe in the arrival of their delivering Messiah in the days of the return of the prophet Elijah, when Israel will be Redeemed. It is transcendental to know that long before the birth of Zoroaster, Krishna, Hermes Trismegistus, Siddartha Gautama, Lao Tze, Confucius, Meng-Tse, Yeshua ha.Notzri (Jesus of Nazareth), Mani, Mohammed or Nichinen Daisonin, had already been announced Coming from the "true man", a supernatural and exemplary being that would change the course and destiny of humanity. How could suppose to be known that "someone" would come? If one does not believe in the spiritual and supernatural realm, so then will not understand the root and reason of religion. One of the "spiritual" aspects is related to precognition, remote vision, premonitory dreams and other nuances of the dream world, extrasensory abilities, transcendence to the 4th Dimension - of physics and mathematics (the 'time') -, Mind, quantum mechanics, and many other areas where the prophetic component is analyzed and studied - or incorporated - to see things before they occur. Well, with mere triangulation and experiential knowledge of the cycles of fate one can foresee the future, there are important details, such as the predictions of determinant and punctual things. In that sense it is fundamental to add that the historical appearance of a child of God was not exclusive to the Hebrew people, and was, however, a theme known everywhere. Any culture that is studied will have, somewhere, a story where mentions that supernatural beings had children and/or daughters with mortal women, and almost always these offspring turned out to be great eminences of history (Check ‘Genesis 6:4-5’). To say, "God's son will come," was to assume that strictly speaking the one who believed in one god: «[the] son ​​of the creator god comes» (phrase in pre-Sanskrit, engraved on a pre-Columbian figure of 13,000 years of antiquity found in Ecuador). But if the gods had children with the human, how can we specify which of all these offspring would be the specific one that was so expected? Time after birth of Siddarta Gautama (the Buddha) was told that his mother had conceived him during a dream in which she was impregnated by a white elephant; On Alexander the Great and Plato it was said that his father had really been Phoebus Apollo; Xerxes, and many Caesars and Pharaohs were considered semi-divine beings, sons of some important or sovereign god. The book of Genesis (circa 1450 BCE) relates that before the Flood there was a divine race that descended to the Earth and fathered children with mortal maidens, and their children were the great heroes and half-gods of the That later would be narrated in the mythologies. This story of Moses is not unique to this book, and is referred to in other Hebrew texts and in countless cultures all over the planet, and there are even complete lists of these beings describing their names, years of government and successions, such as Cases of Egyptian or Sumerian records. For example, the idea of ​​a savior and enlightener of the world was both prior to Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth and contemporary to him, but decidedly after the absence of spiritually imposing figures, there remained only disciplines based on imprecise hope or simply deteriorated Faith and the work done was lost. While some were considered semi-deities, but did not have a humanitarian roll, others considered themselves mere emissaries, and with humility and care they tried to guide justice and altruism to their fellows. Only rarely, as with Christianity, did the conviction persist that its leader was permanent and would return, to the degree that this belief became a solid pillar of the theology of these peoples and groups of people. The Jews knew that Moses had died, the Mazdas knew that Zoroaster died, Muslims know that Muhammad died, but for other cultures, his inspiring figures such as Krishna, Osiris, Hermes, Buddha or Yeshua (Jesus), even though they had experienced a Physical death, had transcended this world, and some of them continued to appear clearly to their followers even centuries after they were considered dead. Is this true? In any case, living or in another dimension, what would their teachings serve if the majority of humanity conceived of biological death as the end? Many hope that a utopian era of peace, harmony and unity will be established among all peoples, and in communion and love we will achieve immortality, but there remains the greedy and bloody component that precludes balance and equity, having a few power and using it To keep the rest in conflicts and wars. For the most spiritual, that is not the biggest problem, but fervently consider that the soul (a personified and individualized component of the Universal Consciousness) is evaluated by its actions while incarnated, and when leaving the bio-chemical body is judged By his actions, and of being found guilty of evil would suffer in other worlds for several decades or even generations. For those who see destiny in this way, more than a leader to end the struggles between tribes and nations, it is more priority to go to the core of the problem: the soul. Thus, the idea of ​​savior for "religious" is oriented to conscience and righteousness, assuming that only a man of great virtue can teach us the path of truth, honesty and love, to live in peace with others and save Our soul and take it to planes of paradisiacal reality, established for the pure and giving.

Messiah Or Antichrist? by Anthony John Evenhuis Summary

This new study is original in that, written by a person who is thoroughly familiar with the Judeo-Christian messianic tradition, it seeks to do justice to the strong religious thread that runs through all of Zola's work. In addition, Dr. Evenhuis's experience in the psychoanalytical approach to literature allows him to venture into intriguing speculations involving Zola's conscious or unconscious use of symbolism: the reader is invited to read between the lines of Zola's text in order to gain deeper insights into the author's inner world. Essentially, Messiah or Antichrist? examines the factors that may have induced Zola to embrace the messianic vision, and then systematically traces the rejection and eventual readopting of that myth in prose works that span a period of some forty years.

The Burden of Silence by Cengiz Sisman Summary

The Burden of Silence is the first monograph on Sabbateanism, an early modern Ottoman-Jewish messianic movement, tracing it from its beginnings during the seventeenth century up to the present day. Initiated by the Jewish rabbi Sabbatai Sevi, the movement combined Jewish, Islamic, and Christian religious and social elements and became a transnational phenomenon, spreading througout Afro-Euroasia. When Ottoman authorities forced Sevi to convert to Islam in 1666, his followers formed messianic crypto-Judeo-Islamic sects, Dönmes, which played an important role in the modernization and secularization of Ottoman and Turkish society and, by extension, Middle Eastern society as a whole. Using Ottoman, Jewish, and European sources, Sisman examines the dissemination and evolution of Sabbeateanism in engagement with broader topics such as global histories, messianism, mysticism, conversion, crypto-identities, modernity, nationalism, and memory. By using flexible and multiple identities to stymie external interference, the crypto-Jewish Dönmes were able to survive despite persecution from Ottoman authorities, internalizing the Kabbalistic principle of a "burden of silence" according to which believers keep their secret on pain of spiritual and material punishment, in order to sustain their overtly Muslim and covertly Jewish identities. Although Dönmes have been increasingly abandoning their religious identities and embracing (and enhancing) secularism, individualism, and other modern ideas in the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey since the nineteenth century, Sisman asserts that, throughout this entire period, religious and cultural Dönmes continued to adopt the "burden of silence" in order to cope with the challenges of messianism, modernity, and memory.

Simon of Cyrene by Robert E. Wardlow Summary

My name is Simon, and I am a Jew. I was born in the small village of Nazareth, seventy miles north of Jerusalem in lower Galilee, thirty-three years ago. My father, Lucius, is a wine merchant; and we moved to Cyrene, the capital of the Roman province of Cyrenaica, when I was twelve. Cyrenaica has a Jewish population of one hundred thousand. My wife, Serah, and I live in a Jewish community of Cyrene, with our sons, Rufus and Alexander. When my friend Nathan and I graduated from the Academy of Philosophy in Cyrene, we went into the importing and exporting wine business with my father. Nathan and I are going to Jerusalem on business and plan on celebrating Passover while we are there. It has been over twenty years since we moved to Cyrene, and returning to Jerusalem has been a dream of mine for years. My thoughts are also focused on going to Nazareth and visiting with relatives and old friends, especially my childhood friend Jesus. Our families lived next door to each other, and Jesus and I attended school together at the synagogue. As children, I helped my father in the vineyards and winery, and Jesus helped his father in the carpentry shop. We enjoyed watching my father make wine and his father make furniture. After school, we would play games on the village square; and in the evenings, we would play in Jesuss fathers workshop. I have fond memories of those days. This is my story.

The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined by David Friedrich Strauss Summary

The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined was one of the most controversial and hotly contested books of its time. One reviewer stated that it was "the most pestilential book ever vomited out of the jaws of hell." Strauss rejected the idea of miracles in the Bible, instead crediting them as mythical stories used to demonstrate a point. He also discredits Jesus's divinity, dissecting the New Testament and pointing out that Jesus was simply a manifestation of who the Jews wished their Messiah to be. The book was translated from its fourth German edition in 1843 by George Eliot. David Friedrich Strauss (1808-1874)was a German theologian and author who focused his work on the critical study and examination of Jesus. Strauss' most famous and acclaimed work was The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined, but he wrote many other books defending his position on the divinity of Jesus, which he denied. While his position was hotly debated and highly unpopular at the time, his work has had a great impact on the study of Christianity, the New Testament, and early religions today.

1-2 Thessalonians by Nijay K Gupta Summary

In the first century, the Thessalonian church grieved deaths in their community, endured harsh persecution, and struggled with questions about the future. Paul offered them the comforts and reassurances of hope in the Messiah, but he offered far more than mere wishful thinking or 'pie in the sky' comfort. Paul's emphasis on hope in Jesus involved capturing a vision of God's redeemed and just future in order to see and live faithfully today. Paul did not believe in a passive hope but an active hope, to which, if the Day of the Messiah is a beacon, believers diligently move having set their course. That diligence is especially captured by love for Christian brothers and sisters, commitment to honest and productive work, and obedience to the truth of the gospel of Jesus.

Self-help Messiah by Steven Watts Summary

An illuminating biography of the man who taught Americans “how to win friends and influence people” Before Stephen Covey, Oprah Winfrey, and Malcolm Gladwell there was Dale Carnegie. His book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, became a best seller worldwide, and Life magazine named him one of “the most important Americans of the twentieth century.” This is the first full-scale biography of this influential figure. Dale Carnegie was born in rural Missouri, his father a poor farmer, his mother a successful preacher. To make ends meet he tried his hand at various sales jobs, and his failure to convince his customers to buy what he had to offer eventually became the fuel behind his future glory. Carnegie quickly figured out that something was amiss in American education and in the ways businesspeople related to each other. What he discovered was as simple as it was profound: Understanding people’s needs and desires is paramount in any successful enterprise. Carnegie conceived his book to help people learn to relate to one another and enrich their lives through effective communication. His success was extraordinary, so hungry was 1920s America for a little psychological insight that was easy to apply to everyday affairs. Self-help Messiah tells the story of Carnegie’s personal journey and how it gave rise to the movement of self-help and personal reinvention.
