One night in a small rural town in upstate New York, fifteen-year-old Dylan Hellenbrand, who is home alone, hears the doorbell ring. Upon inspecting the peephole, the wary teenager decides not to answer. The person standing on the porch is wearing a dark jacket with a hood. Something about the mysterious unexpected visitor doesn't feel right.
A minute later as Dylan tries to pretend that no one is home, he hears, in the backyard, his German shepherd Murray barking and growling fiercely. Then to the adolescent's horror, he hears the sound of a loud boom, reminiscent of a firecracker exploding. Suddenly the dog squeals like a stuck pig.
Oh no! What just happened? What was Dylan suppose to do now?
Yes! Hide. That was about all he could do. Especially since Dylan had forgotten to lock the back door.

In my adult Sunday school class on December 12, 1982, I spoke to the class about the Theory of Evolution and expressed my beliefs about how that theory is affecting our life and how it will lead to the Great Tribulation. Remarkable as such a statement may sound I believe it to be very much the truth. Therefore, I have written this book to retrace the steps that led to the above lecture and also to share my findings concerning the relationship that exists between the Theory of Evolution and the Great Tribulation. I hope to relate in this summary not just a review of that Sunday morning class but also to provide a trail of my research. Perhaps, after reading these pages, my reader will be led to conclude, as I already have, that the end may be much nearer than we think.
Chapter one will present the reason for all of my research. In trying to teach the Book of Revelation, I found several questions about the Great Tribulation that I could not answer but felt should be answered. With all ...

Frequently, when we ask, they tell us: "Do you want to know what an angel is? They are virtues; seek in your interior". But what does to seek in our interior mean?
If we seek, we will find we are living bodies. My answer to those who ask me what's an angel is simple; I don't make them think too much, but try to answer on the basis of the experiences I've lived as if they were a story, a fable, such as Jesus did in every teaching he pronounced in front of those who listened to him from the heart.
Why do I do it this way? Simply, because to speak of something as if it was a fable will open every human being's imagination at any stage of his life. And because imagining is creating, creating is believing, and believing is to have understood what we have imagined.

The Book of Samahel are the messages of more than sixty Angels. The source is controversial: while some ascertain these Angels appeared physically in what they called "glorified bodies", others acknowledge that the messages were actually "channelled" in Paiporta (Valencia, Spain), from 1987 to 1989. The three chapters contained in this ebook are only a part of the 19 chapters that form the whole book, that won't be published in its entirety until 2050. (These were the instructions given by the Angels.) Anyway these three chapters summarize perfectly the remaining content and contain messages of Love for mankind and warnings about what Humanity is doing wrong. Judge for yourselves.
The donkey dug his heels in and refused to move another step. The farmer, a country man who had been living off his land for many years, was frustrated and angry. The animal was refusing to move forward into the barn, fearing the strange sensation of his long ears brushing the top of the barn.
He pushed and slapped the donkey's side with his straw hat, attempting to scare him forward. But the animal refused to budge another inch. The farmer had no time for such foolishness.
A car was approaching the barn; likely another customer from his unattended vegetable stand out front. Drat this animal! He silently pondered the situation; no wonder they called them mules!
The late model Mercedes came to a stop; a man who appeared to be in his mid 40's stepped out of the car, folding his suit jacket over his arm. "Hello, are you the owner of the fresh vegetable operation out front?"

The poems of LISTENING TO SILENCE define meditation as any moment in which we experience silence, peace, balance, beauty, depth, mystery...
Author Michael R. Patton tells us that he's no guru, but "a human being clouded by noise." These poems speak of his struggle to find the silence within that noise. His struggle. Our struggle.
Meditation is not an escape from life, but an effort to imbibe life more fully--to deeply appreciate this grand mystery...
LISTENING TO SILENCE describes that effort in a way that is both contemporary and accessible, without being trite or mundane.
War brings out the worst of humanity... but it also brings out the best. Toward the end of 1914, the men of the great armies of Europe laid down their arms in favor of Bibles and ball games and chocolate cakes. For the next four years they would continue killing one another in the name of king and country, but for one beautiful night and day that December all that mattered was their love for Christmas, and their love for one another. Here are two fictional stories that meld into one, representative of countless many from that glorious Christmas Truce... that of a young German Lutheran, and that of a young English atheist, both of whom find themselves at war not only in the trenches of Belgium but in their souls. What they experience during Yuletide of 1914 will change not only them, but all those in their lives. Forever.
They grow with us - but they aren't us.

GREAT DINNER TIME DEVOTIONAL TO USE WITH YOUR CHILDREN AND PRE-TEENS!
Discipleship was meant to start and end in the home.
Long before God created the nation of Israel to spread His glory and long before God instituted the church to share the message of Christ, God ordained the family to be the primary means of discipleship.
God says, "Be very careful never to forget what you have seen the Lord do for you. Do not let these things escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren... That way, they will learn to fear me as long as they live, and they will be able to teach my laws to their children."
God's plan from the beginning has been incredibly simple. "Parents you teach your children about Me as you walk through life together. Then, when your children grow up and leave the home, they will turn around and do the same for their children."
That is the purpose of this devotional. Let it be a tool to help daily disciple your ...

Many years ago I was practising as a Nutrition Consultant, using Radiesthesia (dowsing) as a diagnostic tool, and decided to investigate where this psychic phenomenon was coming from.
