This book will answer these questions and many more: Does God use evil spirits? Why does God not intervene in the death of innocent children? Does He Curse? Does He want your money? Did He make weird laws? Does He ever change His mind? Does He ever repent? Why is He silent? Why did He invent old age? Is He really a terrorist? Are there some things He can’t do? Does God demand that you worship Him? This book is based on the word of God. Over 1200 scriptures are used to substantiate the teaching herein. These verses speak powerfully to us about the nature and character of God. He wants you to literally live by the words that come out of His mouth. He put you through hard times...., so you would learn that men and women don’t live by bread only; we live by every word that comes from GOD’s mouth (Deuteronomy 8:3). These words are powerful enough to give you eternal life and His Word will help you through your daily trials. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth... So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them (Isaiah 55:10-l1). The Spirit of God is anxious to work on you! This book portrays the Almighty God as one who put an extremely high price on His love for us humans. We need to love Him in return while showing Him reverence and fear. Spurn His love too often and we could end up facing His wrath. The ultimate Lover wants you to fi nd Him so He can lavish His expensive love on you.

Internationally respected scholar Richard Bauckham offers a brief, engaging study of divine revelation in Scripture. He probes the deep meaning of well-known moments in the biblical story in order to address the key question the Bible is designed to answer: Who is God? Accessible for laypeople and important to scholars, this volume begins by exploring three key events in the Bible in which God is revealed: Jacob's dream at Bethel (the revelation of the divine presence), Moses at the burning bush (the revelation of the divine Name), and Moses on Mount Sinai (the revelation of the divine character). In each case, Bauckham traces these themes through the rest of Scripture. He then shows how the New Testament builds on the Old by exploring three revelatory events in Mark's Gospel, events that reveal the Trinity: Jesus's baptism, transfiguration, and crucifixion. This book is based on the Frumentius Lectures for 2015 at the Ethiopian Graduate School of Theology in Addis Ababa and on the Haywood Lectures for 2018 at Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia.

All God Worshippers Are Mad

"All God Worshippers Are Mad: a little book of sanity" seeks to demonstrate in a logical and common sense manner that the fundamental beliefs held by all monotheists are incomprehensible and lunatic. The method employed is to take the obscurantist vocabulary of monotheism and translate it into plain language. In doing so, the book attempts to show that god worshippers themselves do not understand the things they claim to believe and by which they live their lives. For the reader who believes in god, this polemical little volume may help them to understand why secularists get so frustrated and infuriated when in debate with god worshippers. For the secularist, this book is a reminder that not everyone is susceptible to reasoned argument. The reminder is a timely one. A clear understanding of the irrationality of monotheism is something which matters urgently when confronted by the global rise of religious fascism. What is said in this little book will no doubt be found impolite and overly-provocative by those authoritarian people within the politically correct establishment who conflate morality with niceness. They will probably utter the familiar refrain that we ought not to denigrate other people's deeply and sincerely held beliefs. Instead we should live in a permanent state of apology for the crime of having minds of our own. But religions are no more above criticism than any other ideologies. They have no entitlement to a privileged status. Besides which, large numbers of god worshippers feel free to denigrate and insult everyone else's deeply and sincerely held beliefs, so why should they have special permission to be hypocrites? Topics covered: 01. God 02. Prayer 03. Worship 04. God the Infinite 05. Immortality and Heaven 06. Soul / Spirit 07. Salvation 08. Faith 09. Spreading The Word 10. Theocracy 11. Theocracy and Nuclear Armageddon 12. God, Guilty of Genocide 13. Religion and Morality are Mutually Exclusive 14. God worship is Immoral 15. God worship is Obscene 16. Everything is God's Fault 17. If it's in The Book, then it Must be True 18. Claiming Incomprehensible Beliefs 19. Is Islamism the New Fascism? 20. The Moderates

"It was the beginning of October. We had spent most of the year paying down huge financial obligations, such as the house, and were excited the year was almost over. All was well until my company announced that there was going to be some job eliminations. I felt bad for those that were about to lose their jobs and didn't give it a second thought since I was excellent at what I did - or so I thought. I was on my computer one day thereafter and received a meeting invite from the departmental head. I felt a knot in my stomach. The same knot I felt when I was refused a visa many years ago. The same knot I felt when I lost everything in an international trip. I walked into the boss's elegant office and there was told that my job had been eliminated. I had 2 children at home, a wife, and numerous financial obligations - and here I was jobless." #WIGDN In seasons such as the one described above from the book and varied other seasons of life, a question in your minds is: "Where is God in all this?" Or worse still, "Is there a God?" The excerpt from the book is not a fictional story or an abstract example of someone's life; it is autobiographical to the author's life. Uche Unogu, through inspiring real-life and personal stories, enunciates that the right question to ask really is: "What is God Doing Now?" In this soul-stirring work, Uche explains that God's hand is in your situations especially during the valley seasons. Many equate prosperity with God's blessing, and rightly so, but God is usually seen especially in adversity. You most often miss what God is doing now because you allow an adverse situation to engulf you. Blocking your eyes to the good God is doing through the storm. This book teaches clearly how to recognize God's presence in all situations, to believe for His leading, to listen for His voice, and to find His hand in your situation. This book also will give you hope and help get you out of depressing seasons faster. Ultimately, you'll see God's vision for your life more clearly, and you'll come to know and love more the God who loves you the most. Believe it or not, God commands us to come and reason with Him. And in doing so, He invites you to ask the question: "What is God Doing Now?"

What emerges is something quite remarkable, a God who has never been absent from anything in life we have been through.

The Philadelphia Experiment was Einstein's experiment in which he had not only discovered, in 1943, the way to make things invisible and transport them at great speeds, but positively proven scientifically, physically and spiritually that God ALMIGHTY exists! He had literally discovered God! That question, IS THERE A GOD? has been going through people's minds for so long, which has been discussed on street corners, talked about on the porch on a hot summer's night, is now a proven fact! YES, THERE IS A GOD! Since the beginning of the world, many have had questions in their minds, souls, and hearts that have remained unanswered. Why am I here? What's the meaning of life? How was all created? Who are God and the Devil? If God created all, who created God? If He is the first in creation, where and how did He come into existence? Why does God allow evil in the world? Why do good things happen to bad people and bad things to good people? Why, if we all came from Adam and Eve who were Jewish, are there gentiles? Why are there cancer and deadly diseases? Why was knowledge of good and evil forbidden in the garden? Why would good knowledge be forbidden? Why does cancer hit a young child killing it early in life? Why, if God is good and merciful, doesn't He heal that child? How old is the earth? What is the Trinity of God? How come Genesis say "us" referring to God? Why have, down through the ages, religions done such evil? Why is money the main suit of many Christian preachers when they say the love of money is the root of all evil and rich men won't get to heaven? What, when and how did the "big bang" start? How can I live a balanced life without hating God and without falling into traps of guilt? Why is there such hatred of flesh by the religious? Why do they restrict all fleshly things God made and said were good in Genesis? What happened to Satan? Who is he really and what did he do in the past? What are his beliefs and ways? What is he, literally, made of? What is the meaning of the great pyramids and sphinx that have been such a great mystery since the day they were made? What are the UFOs? What are demons? What is religion? What, and where, is heaven? Is there a hell? Is there a God? What was Einstein's Unified Field Theory that, in one simple equation, explains all things? Using science, astrology and physics, the occult, the Bible and every source possible, all these questions will be answered in one simple answer. All these questions have been a mystery for a long time, some since the beginning of time. In this book, I will answer them directly, with simple proof and in absolute truth, unlike any answers you ever heard before. You might not like the answers or agree with them at first, but truth defies time, lies, and debate. It stands forever in heaven, in hell, and in space. The truth is always universal. Lies often don't answer all, but the truth does on all subjects. This is unheard of because, since the beginning, science, astrology, astronomy, religion, numerology, history and all other subjects fought one against the other and never agreed on anything. The answers in this book agree with all and when opposites agree you can bet it is the truth. If I had not called this book THE MYSTERY OF GOD, I would have called it "THE TRUTH." Words are cheap, but words of truth are precious and few. The answers in this book are words of truth and are what is known as... THE MYSTERY OF GOD!
