Wieder geboren, um wieder zu lieben Lucinda Price ist 17 und den ersten Tag auf dem Internat, als sie ihn sieht: Daniel Grigori, den unglaublich attraktiven, aber auch unglaublich distanzierten Jungen, von dem sie sicher ist, dass sie ihn schon einmal gesehen hat. Doch Daniel behauptet, sie nicht zu kennen – er scheint sie sogar zu hassen und weicht ihr aus, wo immer er kann. Doch immer wenn Luce etwas Schlimmes widerfährt, sobald die gefährlichen Schatten sie wieder umtanzen, die sie seit ihrer Kindheit umgeben, ist er zur Stelle. Mehrfach rettet er ihr Leben. Allmählich kommen die beiden sich näher, und da erst erfährt Luce, welches Geheimnis sie beide umgibt: Daniel ist ein gefallener Engel, dazu verdammt, für immer auf der Erde umherzuwandern. Luce aber ist dazu verdammt, alle 17 Jahre wiedergeboren zu werden, sich jedes Mal aufs Neue unsterblich in Daniel zu verlieben – und den Tod zu finden, sobald sie und Daniel sich näherkommen ...

The setting is a New York apartment where two long-estranged lovers try to resuscitate their passion. Kay is old enough to be skeptical about men–this man in particular–but still alert to the possibility of true love. Benjamin is a filmmaker with an appealing waywardness and a conveniently disappearing fiancée. As the two lie entwined in bed, Susan Minot ushers readers across an entire landscape of memory and sensation to reveal the infinite nuances of sex: its power to exalt and deceive, to connect two separate selves or make them fully aware of their solitude. Honest and unflinching, the result is a hypnotic reading experience. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Author Eleanor Schultz removes the mystery of scenes described by Bible prophets. Logical and clear explanation, with a touch of humor, calms fears about the times that we are destined to experience before the Rapture. The rise of the Antichrist and his crusade to conquer the world is unsettling at best. The surfacing of the Ark and Israel’s encounter with God makes for exciting reading. The Middle East emerges as the seat of world political, religious, and economic power. Peace arrives, and prosperity follows. The deception and lure of resulting pleasures can be deadly if we fall for the deceptive tactics of evil in the end times. Surveying all things, we realize we are not alone and evil is not in charge. God’s plan of redemption is the controlling factor for end-time events, and Satan does not have veto rights. God is still in control.

This book explains in great detail and exceptional clarity the issues related to the Rapture of the Church, the government of the Antichrist, the "Great Tribulation," and all the apocalyptic judgments that God will pour out upon the world in the latter days. The Rapture of the Church will bring about the global collapse of the economic, political, and religious institutions around the world. Humanity will look for a leader who can put the world back together, offer them peace and security. So by popular acclamation, the world will host a false prince of peace the Bible calls the Antichrist. He will elate the masses by telling them what they want to hear. The Antichrist will push humanity to the deepest levels of degradation, vice, immorality, crime, war, violence, and rebellion against God. He will corrupt the social and moral order, and as a result, billions of people will die. He will plunge the world into spiritual darkness and lead humanity astray. We cannot begin to imagine the horror and the endless suffering humanity will experience through the chaos wrought by the Antichrist. The Bible says that the Antichrist's empire "shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces" (Daniel 7:23). In reference to this dreadful period of human suffering, the Lord Jesus said, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall" (Matthew 24:21). This will be a period characterized by widespread wars, which will bring death to billions of people. During this period, 25 and 33 percent of the world population will die in two major wars. If these two conflicts were to take place in our time, 3.56 billion of the world population would die.

Will you be ready for Christ's return? The Rapture: Behold, the Bridegroom Cometh! examines this question and offers a prediction about what will take place when that event occurs. Author Debbie Furey has spent countless hours in prayer and study uncovering hidden prophecies throughout the Bible related to Jesus Christ's second coming. One such prophecy in the book of Ruth paints a picture of the return of the Jews coming back into their land shortly before the marriage of Jesus Christ and His church. Another prophecy is hidden in the Song of Solomon—the parable of the five wise and five foolish virgins of Matthew 25, which explains what will happen to those who are ready and those who are not. For those who have ever wondered about the rapture or questioned how to be prepared, this insightful guide uses the truths of Scripture to answer questions such as: • Will all Christians be taken in the rapture? • What will happen during the seven-year tribulation period? • How is Jesus's return like the 'days of Noah'? • How is the rapture a picture of the ancient Jewish wedding customs? • What is the hidden prophetic meaning of the number two? May those who have ears to hear and eyes to see be ready when the shout is given, Behold, the Bridegroom Cometh!

The fantasy section of "The Year of the Rapture," begins as the author takes an imaginary journey into heaven via a dream as a boy of eight. While there he morphs into an adult and finds himself viewing a strange scene on earth. Though curiosity and creativity are rampant throughout, the integrity of the scripture is maintained. COMPELLING ! The fiction portion of The Year of the Rapture reveals a town full of young adults, (headies) seeking a secular experience to satisfy their search for reality. Their reverie is hijacked by a few Christians whose reality wins! The story builds and explodes with three shocking events that lead to a dynamic conclusion, leaving the reader astonished and incredulous. INSIGHTFUL ! Fact, "The future is now," is a popular twenty first century phrase and could be a Biblical reality anytime. "Perhaps today," is another statement regarding the imminent return of the Lord Jesus. Being ready for that occasion is urged by God in scripture. Therefore, regarding the Rapture, a constant NOW is presented in the Bible and by the author. Dave Allan has had an inveterate career of ministry experience. His credentials as a director includes three organizations, seven youth enterprises, multiple church ministries, numerous missionary junkets abroad and two Christian college positions.

It's the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal has redefined American politics. Taxes are at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has brought a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business has many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom is diminishing . . . and many are desperate to take that freedom back. Among them is a great dreamer, an immigrant who pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and admired men in the world. That man is Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserve better. And so he set out to create the impossible, a utopia free from government, censorship, and moral restrictions on science--where what you give is what you get. He created Rapture---the shining city below the sea. But as we all know, this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be . . .and how it all ended.

This book will show an understanding of the Bible, some "doom and gloom" but not entirely, a must read. Feed on His Word, to be victorious in the battle. All soldiers go to Boot camp. The word "revelation" in Greek means "unveiling" of hidden things only revealed by God. Revelation is our armour, power for the time of judgment. We must put on the whole armour of God to defeat Satan. Without armour we will be destroyed. The Word is our sword. "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." (Ho. 4: 6) In the beginning of Revelation, His Word states, "Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand." (Rev. 1: 3) Revelation is the book in the Bible that contains a special promise to obedient readers and at the same time pronounces a curse upon those who tamper with its contents. Obedience will bring us reward, and disobedience the wrath of God in the last days. Jesus said, "If you love me, pick up your cross and follow me daily." To learn the truth of his will we must come with a humble and teachable heart. In doing so, we will obtain the wisdom and knowledge of his Word. The mystery of Jesus Christ and his coming, is to all those who read it. The final Victory of the Son of God is in his Love. Then we will rejoice forever in the glory of his presence and in the abundance of his reward. A-men. A-men.
