This Second Edition represents Bellah's summation of his views on civil religion in America. In his 1967 classic essay "Civil Rights in America," Bellah argued that the religious dimensions of American society—as distinct from its churches—has its own integrity and required "the same care in understanding that any religion." This edition includes his 1978 article "Religion and the Legitimation of the American Republic," and a new Preface.

This is a literary and theological study of the Biblical Antiquities of Pseudo-Philo--a long, well-written reinterpretation of the Hebrew Bible written by a Palestinian Jew of the first century C.E. Using the methodologies of redaction and literary criticism, Murphy provides an analysis of the whole of the Biblical Antiquities. After a chapter-by-chapter analysis, Murphy addresses several topics more generally--major characters, major themes, and the historical context of the work. Full concordances to the Latin text are provided to assist future research on Pseudo-Philo. This book will prove an important resource for students of Jewish interpretation of the Bible at the end of the Second Temple period. It also sheds light on Jewish thought of the period regarding covenant, leadership in Israel, women in Israel, relations with Gentiles, divine providence, divine retribution, eschatology, and many other subjects. Furnishing a broad interpretive context for future work on the Biblical Antiquities, this study gives students of the Bible access to an important literary and religious product of first-century Judaism.

“We had hoped it was he [the Messiah] who would redeem Israel” (Luke 24:21) In this book, you will learn that the religion Jesus founded was not Gentile or called “Christianity.” The name “Christianity” is not found in the New Testament—a work authored by Jews who followed Jesus; that the religion of Jesus was a form of Judaism that revolved around the Hebrew concept of “B’rit Hadashah,” meaning “New Covenant.” This concept first appeared in the writings of Jeremiah, one of the great prophets of Judaism; that to achieve the full task Jews have expected of their Messiah—of redeeming Israel and completing Gentile world salvation—there have been three separate stages in the work of Jesus the Messiah: (1) the Atonement & Resurrection stage; (2) the Gentile stage (represented by two thousand years of Gentile Christianity); and (3) the Jewish (or “Jewish redemption”) stage; that with regard to the Messiah’s prophecy on Jerusalem and on the completion (or “fulfillment”) of his Gentile stage—see Luke 21:24: “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled”—on June 7, 1967 (the day Jerusalem fell to Jews), the Messiah’s prophecy was fulfilled. Hence, with June 7, 1967 formally marking the end of the Messiah’s Gentile (or “Christian”) stage, the Messiah’s final (or Jewish) stage has already begun; that with the “times of the Gentiles (or Christianity)” over, why Christians must adjust and reorient themselves to the new Jewish era and reality that is rising; many other topics of vital relevance to our present transitional era—from Gentile-Christian to Jewish-centered times—where world history is quickly reaching a tumultuous climax...centered on the Jews, Jesus the Messiah and the Messiah’s New Covenant Judaism as the winning side of end-time history.

This study examines covenant identity and rituals suggesting that while in Palestinian Judaism several rituals affirm covenant belonging, for Paul covenant is not ritually affirmed, since baptism marks entry into Christ or the church rather than into the covenant.

The Lord God wants us to know that there is perfect healing and deliverance in the name of Jesus and by His blood. There is great peace, joy, progress, success, restoration for the people of God. But the way we go about seeking these things (deliverance, progress, etc) these days is no longer pleasing to God. We have cast away the simplicity that is in Christ, and have replaced it with the heavy yoke of religion. The free deliverance, which is easy to obtain through Christ, doesn't seem to be available anymore. It has been replaced with another type of deliverance, a religious deliverance, which is so hard and costly. People pay so much money, do so much fasting, torture themselves so much all in their bid to obtain deliverance. At the end, they are not really delivered! Their problems remain with them, or even get worse. The purpose of this book is to bring us back to the simple and free way of obtaining perfect deliverance in Christ, without all the religious struggles and troubles that men have imposed on us. Those who have tried the simple ways of Christ, which are in this book, are greatly surprised how so quickly God could make things beautiful again in their lives, without extra cost, without struggles. May God use this book to help bring you into the path of perfect deliverance and progress, which He has obtained for us in Christ Jesus. LaFAMCALL Ministries January 2005 God's End-time Programme for the Preparation and Perfection of the Bride of Christ That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but that it should be holy, and without blemish (Ephesians 5: 27). - LaFAMCALL (End-time) Ministries There is a new move of God, called HOLY GHOST SCHOOL. It is very simple, yet very powerful. It is simple and powerful in the sense that, through it, God will transform your life and the lives of all members of your family within a short time! Problems that have been there for years, which have refused to go despite all efforts, all these will be washed away by the WATER OF LIFE, which is flowing from the throne of God. This Water of Life will touch you through HOLY GHOST SCHOOL. All these will be done without your effort and struggles! Yes, in all these you will not be required to do much. You only have to rest in God's presence while He goes about, doing all these for you. God does not need our fleshly struggles anymore. He now wants us to enter into His presence and enjoy His REST, while He concludes the work that He began in our lives. This is the work of PERFECTION He is now doing in the lives of His children – through Holy Ghost Schooling. It is one of God's end-time programmes to make the bride of Christ ready! (Rev 19: 7). It is the sweet wine He reserved for us, for the last days. The New Wine is now being served. · In the LAST DAYS … many people will come and say come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD… He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths. (Isaiah 2: 2, 3) · I will INSTRUCT thee and TEACH thee in the way which thou shall go. I will GUIDE thee with Mine eye. (Psalms 32: 8) · But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, (He) will TEACH you ALL THINGS … (John 14: 26) WHAT IS HOLY GHOST SCHOOL? Holy Ghost School is God's end-time Discipleship Programme – by Revelation. It is a new thing in our time. It is a new move of God which He specifically kept for the Last days. He revealed this to His Prophet, Isaiah and confirmed it through Micah, to show how important it is. In the LAST DAYS the mountains of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, come ye and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord … And HE WILL TEACH US His ways, and we will walk in His paths …(Isaiah 2: 2,3). This prophecy is repeated word for word in Micah 4: 1, 2 and it simply means that in the last days the presence of God will be exalted above every other pursuit of man. The mountain of God means God's presence. Other hills means things men are pursuing in their self-will. In the Last Days there will be shaking of nations, and fear will come upon all. As end-time calamities sweep across nations, fear will come upon all men. Men will then abandon their selfish, carnal pursuits and will run to God for protection and safety. In other words, a day is coming when everyone will seek God and pursue Him above any other desire. On that day the Mountain of the Lord (God's presence) would be desired above every other thing. It further said that in that time, men will seek God just for one thing, that He may teach us HIS WAYS. People would become tired of seeking miracles and blessings and all that. Now they will seek just one thing – knowledge of God. Moreover, they will no longer depend on man's adulterated teachings. They will rather go to God Himself, to learn directly from Him the ways of LIFE! This is the Holy Ghost School we are talking about. God revealed it to His servants and told them it would take place in the LAST DAYS, Now, everything shows that we are in the Last Days. Therefore Holy Ghost School has taken off, as God said it should be. FURTHER MEANING OF HOLY GHOST SCHOOL In practice, Holy Ghost School simply means somebody learning directly from God! When you separate yourself to God, and allow Him to teach you, and lead you in the way you should go, then you are in the Holy Ghost School. That is all! It simply means, one being taught and being led by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8: 14). WHO IS THE TEACHER IN HOLY GHOST SCHOOL? In John 14: 26, Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would be our Teacher and that He would teach us all things we need to know in this life! In Isaiah 2: 3 and Psalms 32: 8, God Himself says He is to teach us His ways. 1 John 2: 27 says the Anointing (that is the Holy Spirit) is to teach us everything, so that we would not need to run about anymore, seeking man to direct us. The primary purpose of sending the Holy Spirit is that He might become our Teacher (see John 14: 26). And when the Holy Spirit teaches us, that is what we call Holy Ghost School! So, do you want the Holy Spirit to become your personal teacher? Do you want Him begin to teach you the ways of God? Do you want Him to teach you all things you need to know in this life? Do you want Him to begin to lead you and direct you in the way you should go? All you need is to ask Him, and He will begin to do so! He is waiting for you to request. When He begins to lead and teach you, and you begin to obey His leading willingly, then you have joined the Holy Ghost School! It is as simple as that!

First Printed in 2011 2015 edition. Nehemiah 8:1-19; Psalm 91:1 This little book is a collection of messages on Discipleship Training in Holy Ghost School recorded at Right hand of the LORD Fellowship, Egbe- Lagos, Nigeria. It happened that I was discipled by two ministers of God: Rev. Joses Hizkiah of Unfailing Life Ministries and Prophet Lambert Eze Okafor of LaFAMCALL (End-Time) Ministries. After this, I forgot about the training and continued in my former method of ministration as I could not pick up the teaching immediately. It was at this juncture of stalemate or deadlock that the LORD quickened me one day to start on the teaching on Holy Ghost Discipleship by faith that the inspiration came to start putting down in writing as the LORD started to help me along. After a considerable number of lessons, the directive came from the LORD to compile the messages into a leaflet for discipling members of the fellowship.
