An extensive commentary on the Book of Jubilees, followed by a series of chapters exploring the possibility that the book had more than one author, as well as its relationship to the Genesis Apocryphon, the Aramaic Levi Document, 4Q225 Pseudo-Jubilees, and the writings of Philo of Alexandria.
Poetic Expressions of Jubilee is a book of poems that deal with real life situations that we all may face at one time or another. If you have not experienced some of the items discussed in the poems, you probably know someone who has experienced the highs and lows of Life. The poems also deal with Salvation, Death, and Having a Personal Relationship with God.
Please join us as we walk through the life experiences of just one of the many individuals who desire to express their gratitude to the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Finding grace and mercy; forgiveness and healing, LuAnn Caperton uses her own shortcomings, downfalls, and realizations to show you the many examples of how this God of the universe relates, sees, and cares for even the smallest of us. At age fifty, LuAnn has chosen to share this Jubilee in celebration and thanks for God's gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the redemption He brings to each of us. In this stack of letter-filled pages, you'll find fifty wondrous stories of how the Lord has ministered to her while walking through everyday life. "Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, And thy thoughts which are to us-ward" (Psalm 40:5a). LuAnn's hopes are that somewhere in these simple yet heartfelt words to follow, your hope in Christ will either be found for the first time or strengthened in some way by what you read.
Jubilee Day is a page-turning thriller ripped from today's headlines. Set in November 2011, a mysterious group calling itself Jubilee is assassinating prominent conservatives-the chief justice of the Supreme Court; a former, but still powerful, vice president; several of the bankers who profited from the crash of '07-with a simple warning: Six will die, every day, until you start sharing your wealth and power. As the Jubilees make good on their threat and law enforcement proves unable to stop them, America's leaders are forced to choose: risk personal death by defying Jubilee or acquiesce to their demands, which include a progressive tax on millionaires, caps on executive compensation, cutting military spending in half, and, the key to it all, a national Jubilee-the forgiveness of all debts.
Hundreds touched by the preaching ministry of Evangelist Kabanje have consistently encouraged him to immortalize God's Word in book form. This devotional and inspirational work supplements the Bible in soul edification.
A novel based on the life of the author's great-grandmother follows the story of Vyry, the child of a white plantation owner and one of his slaves, through the years of the Civil War and Reconstruction.
It all started when I started school grade one, when my teacher tied me to a chair. From there, my life was hard. I was bullied right through my school days, made fun of, and teased. It was really hard for me as a child. I am still trying to work out why do children do it? Dont they see what they are doing is really breaking children down in spirit and in life? This book shows how I dealt with it every day. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that life would be easy. I met so many people who went through what I went through. Everyone deals with it in a different way. I concentrated on the word of God. I was talking to a teenager one day, and she had so many problems. Thats when I decided to change my poetry book to a fifty-day diary to help people overcome the obstacles in their life. By writing this book, I hope people will see what they missed in life. By casting all your burdens on to God, you will be healed. It is not an easy road to walk, and it never will be. But with God by your side, you will make it. I also did some research and found that not a lot of people can concentrate for long on something. Thats why I only made it fifty days. So that people can take time out afterwards and think about the path they walked alone, without God by their side. My aim in writing this book is that people would see that with God by their side, anything is possible and that they can overcome the biggest obstacle in life and that nothing can hold them back.
