Are Angels real, do they exist today, have they names like humans? In the second volume of this book series you find more answers you never dared to asked other believers. In this second book, Angels of the Lord, Apostle Dr. Gunter Rappl again takes his readers on a fascinating journey into the deeper understanding of the realm of the angels of YHWH Echad. Apostle Dr. Gunter Rappl covers fascinating topics such as detailed descriptions of the abode of angels, the dimensions of heavens, the Hebrew names of angels, special angelic forces for support of saints, supernatural transport by angels, and Abraham's bosom, to name a few. He reveals little known facts about the ministry of angels in the Courts of Heaven, angels and essential oils of the bible, angels and solfeggio worship music, and angels of the times and seasons of YHWH. He also describes for the first time the prophetic Goshen's in these last days. The revelations described in the book are again backed up by real life angelic encounters and diverse angelic visitations alone or together as ministry team in his Ekklesia Consuming Fire & GFC in Cologne, Germany. Bible-based prayers at the end of each part of the second volume of this series invite the reader to actively engage with these heavenly messengers of YHWH Echad to release protection, healings or blessings from the trading floors of heaven unto the heirs of Elohim according to the promise.

This is an exposition of the internal or spiritual sense of the books of Genesis and Exodus, according to the law of correspondences. It unfolds the spiritual significance of the creation; of the stories of Adam and Eve, and of the deluge; of the lives of the patriarchs; of the captivity of the chosen people in Egypt and of their deliverance therefrom, and of their subsequent history; of the ritual of the Jewish religion, its sacrifices and observances:—and in general, traces the foreshadowing through both books of the incarnation and glorification of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many passages from other parts of the Word are also fully explained. Relations of things heard and seen in the spiritual world are interspersed, explaining the process of dying, and of man's resuscitation and conscious entrance into the interior life; the nature of the soul; of heaven and heavenly joy;and of hell, its nature and its miseries. It also treats of the Grand Man, or the whole angelic heaven, and the correspondence of the societies therein with the different organs and senses of the body; the origin and correspondence of diseases; the spirits and inhabitants of the various planets, and of other earths in the starry heavens. All of which are related to a true understanding of the Divine Word. This is book #2 out of 12 and covers Genesis 10 - 17

The expulsion from Spain did not only result in the destruction and dispersion of Spanish Jewry but led to a crisis in Jewish faith. Don Isaac Abravanel provided a systematic treatment of the main philosophical and theological beliefs of Judaism in an attempt to resolve the inner doubts of his co-religionists. In their Italian exile his son Judah too recognized that Jews were now living in a new cultural world, but he forged a different road for Jews to pursue in their entry into the culture of the Renaissance. This book presents a picture of one family facing the challenges of a new era in Jewish history.

More than any other topic, prophecy represents the point at which the Divine meets the human, the Absolute meets the relative. How can a human being attain the Word of God? In what manner does God, when conceived as eternal and transcendent, address corporeal, transitory creatures? What happens to God's divine Truth when it is beheld by minds limited in their power to apprehend, and influenced by the intellectual currents of their time and place? How were these issues viewed by the great Jewish philosophers of the past, who took the divine communication and all it entails seriously, while at the same time desired to understand it as much as humanly possible in the course of dealing with a myriad of other issues that occupied their attention? This book offers an in-depth study of prophecy in the thought of seven of the leading medieval Jewish philosophers: R. Saadiah Gaon, R. Judah Halevi, Maimonides, Gersonides, R. Hasdai Crescas, R. Joseph Albo and Baruch Spinoza. It attempts to capture the `original voice' of these thinkers by looking at the intellectual milieus in which they developed their philosophies, and by carefully analyzing their views in their textual contexts. It also deals with the relation between the earlier approaches and the later ones. Overall, this book presents a significant model for narrating the history of an idea.

Publisher: Destiny Image Publishers
In his compelling analogy of desire, author and pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant likens desire to a “wish,” an unshakeable yearning to attain a goal—“an internal aim for an external conquest.” He explains truths that reveal the power of desire to work even when you are unaware of its activity. Desire constantly tugs at everyone in a myriad of ways. This powerful training tool teaches you how to control your desires while simultaneously remembering to strive to achieve your godly desires. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 34:7). I Desire takes you on a journey into the truth about desire and its twin—the pursuit of happiness. Discussed are the elements of desire including psychology, philosophical, origin, and managing. You will make a spiritual connection for positive long-term thinking, behavior, and desires. The practical advice flowing throughout every chapter is supported by closely related anecdotes about real-life, modern-day people as well as wonderfully relevant Bible stories.

This unique new work of reference traces the origins of the modern laws of warfare from the earliest times to the present day. Relying on written records from as far back as 2400 BCE, and using sources ranging from the Bible to Security Council Resolutions, the author pieces together the history of a subject which is almost as old as civilisation itself. The author shows that as long as humanity has been waging wars it has also been trying to find ways of legitimising different forms of combatants and ascribing rules to them, protecting civilians who are either inadvertently or intentionally caught up between them, and controlling the use of particular classes of weapons that may be used in times of conflict. Thus it is that this work is divided into three substantial parts: Volume 1 on the laws affecting combatants and captives; Volume 2 on civilians; and Volume 3 on the law of arms control. This second book on civilians examines four different topics. The first topic deals with the targetting of civilians in times of war. This discussion is one which has been largely governed by the developments of technologies which have allowed projectiles to be discharged over ever greater areas, and attempts to prevent their indiscriminate utilisation have struggled to keep pace. The second topic concerns the destruction of the natural environment, with particular regard to the utilisation of starvation as a method of warfare, and unlike the first topic, this one has rarely changed over thousands of years, although contemporary practices are beginning to represent a clear break from tradition. The third topic is concerned with the long-standing problems of civilians under the occupation of opposing military forces, where the practices of genocide, collective punishments and/or reprisals, and rape have occurred. The final topic in this volume is about the theft or destruction of the property of the enemy, in terms of either pillage or the intentional devastation of the cultural property of the opposition. As a work of reference this set of three books is unrivalled, and will be of immense benefit to scholars and practitioners researching and advising on the laws of warfare. It also tells a story which throws fascinating new light on the history of international law and on the history of warfare itself.

The leading Wellington historian’s fascinating reassessment of the Iron Duke’s most famous victory and his role in the turbulent politics after Waterloo. For Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington, his momentous victory over Napoleon was the culminating point of a brilliant military career. Yet Wellington’s achievements were far from over: he commanded the allied army of occupation in France to the end of 1818, returned home to a seat in Lord Liverpool’s cabinet, and became prime minister in 1828. He later served as a senior minister in Peel’s government and remained Commander-in-Chief of the Army for a decade until his death in 1852. In this richly detailed work, the second and concluding volume of Rory Muir’s definitive biography, the author offers a substantial reassessment of Wellington’s significance as a politician and a nuanced view of the private man behind the legend of the selfless hero. Muir presents new insights into Wellington’s determination to keep peace at home and abroad, achieved by maintaining good relations with the Continental powers and resisting radical agitation while granting political equality to the Catholics in Ireland rather than risk civil war. And countering one-dimensional pictures of Wellington as a national hero, Muir paints a portrait of a well-rounded man whose austere demeanor on the public stage belied his entertaining, gossipy, generous, and unpretentious private self. “[An] authoritative and enjoyable conclusion to a two-part biography.”—Lawrence James, Times (London) “Muir conveys the military, political, social and personal sides of Wellington’s career with equal brilliance. This will be the leading work on the subject for decades.”—Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon and Wellington: The Long Duel

This book series a Divine Connection With a Message From God volume II subtitle "Michael!" Yes Lord. " You Have Been Redeemed!" You will learn and discover the real meaning of what it truly means to be redeemed by God at the cross at Calvary. I will also walk you through several of what I truly believe were real personal divine connections with God in Heaven when He spoke to me about Him redeeming me and about my walk and talk with Jesus here on earth and how He healed me before He had to return Back to Heaven to again return. Why God chose me to reveal this certain things to me, I don't fully know. Maybe because my heart mind and soul were and is open to receive it or maybe I guess He knows that I will do something with it, according to His will in Christ Jesus. I truly feel that the Holy Spirit wants me to share it with as many people as possible before His second coming. Well, during the reading of this particular book series volume II, you will also learn and discover how the precious shed blood of Jesus at the cross at Calvary has and will continue to give you victory over any and every situation you face here on Earth, until you enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

The apostle Paul admonished the believers in Rome to diligently study what was written in earlier (i.e., Old Testament) times because what was written was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope (Romans 15:4). No where is this truth more evident that in the books of Kings. Some trod the path of righteousness, others did not. To turn people into the way of peace and blessing the Lord sent His servants the prophets to warn individuals and the nation of Israel of the consequences of their actions. Some of these prophets, like Elijah and Elisha are well known, others are given a place in the inspired record even though little is known of them. This is a plain, highly readable, study that pastors, college students, seminarians, and lay people will find helpful. Throughout this commentary Dr. Barber, like the householder whom the Lord Jesus described in Matthew 13:52 brings out of his treasure things old and new.

At the height of this age of chaos, the dragons decide to intervene, making their presence known to the mortals through the healer Myrilandel. The Last Battlemage: Nimbulan, the last Battlemage and the founder of the school for Communal Magic, is seeking to create a permanent protection for the kingdom of Coronnan, a spell-crafted border to keep enemies out. His search for the key to this magic leads him to terrifying discovery—the dragons, the guardians of magics, are in terrible danger. Want more Dragon novels? Look for The Star Gods trilogy and the new Children of the Dragon Nimbus series! A letter from the author, Irene Radford: Welcome to the world where dragons are real and magic works. If you are new to the Dragon Nimbus, pull up a chair and join us as we revel in tales that have touched my heart more than anything else I've written under any pen name. If you are returning after an absence, I am very happy to have you back. This is a world that began with a Christmas gift of a blown-glass dragon. The dragon sat proudly on the knick-knack shelf for several months, loved and admired, reluctantly dusted, and totally inert. Then one night at dinner, my son remarked, "You know, Mom, I think dragons are born all dark, like that little pewter dragon, then they get more silvery as they grow up until they are as clear as glass." The dragon came to life for me. Out of that chance remark came first one book, then three, five, seven, and finally ten. I built a career on these books and loved every minute of the process. These characters still live in my mind many years after they jumped into their stories and dragged me along with them. Many thanks to DAW Books and my editor Sheila Gilbert for reviving The Dragon Nimbus a lucky thirteen years after they first debuted. With these omnibus volumes, you can read about the dragons with crystal fur that directs your eye elsewhere yet defies you to look anywhere else. Wonderful dragons full of wit and wisdom. Magic abounds. Magicians and mundanes alike learn about their world and special life lessons as they explore dragon lore past and present. The books will be presented in the order in which they were written, and the order that makes the most sense of the entwined tales. So, sit back and enjoy with me. And may reading take you soaring with Dragons.
