Of all the sixty-six books that comprise our Bible, the last book is meant to thrill and exhilarate the believer like none other. A beautiful Christ is unveiled while a company of overcoming saints is seen rising into the fullness of Christ. The book of Revelation is exciting, powerful, and dynamic. But it must be more to us than merely an unveiling of events to come. Revelation must be an experience of encountering the living Christ. God is ready to unveil this book to those who are ready to receive it, eat it, and live fully in the splendor of Christ. The unveiling is more than a vision given to John, but is also meant to be an inward discovery, a delightful unveiling within you. This is not a drama of Satan's worst, but a supernatural drama of God's best, pouring through his beautiful Son, Jesus Christ. Revelation carries one revelation alone: Christ unveiled in his people. To read this book with any other focus is to miss the entire center of its meaning. There are other truths waiting for you to discover, but only after centering our gaze on the Magnificent One. A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands. Revelation 1:3 TPT

"Billige Gnade ist der Todfeind unserer Kirche. Unser Kampf heute geht um die teure Gnade." Für Dietrich Bonhoeffer gibt es keinen lebendigen Glauben ohne Gehorsam. Seit seinem Studienaufenthalt in New York, wo er eine Hinwendung zu einem persönlichen Christusglauben erlebte, sind seine Theologie und Spiritualität geprägt von der Sehnsucht, die Anweisungen der Bergpredigt wörtlich zu nehmen. Die Nachfolge, wie sie die Bergpredigt fordert, zur Mitte und zum Motor seiner Theologie und seines Lebens geworden. Wichtigstes Dokument dieses Strebens ist sein Buch "Nachfolge", eine Auslegung der Bergpredigt, die damals wie heute inspiriert, Jesus zu folgen. Die Einführung von Peter Zimmerling erläutert die Hintergründe des 1937 erstmals erschienenen Buches und zeigt, dass Bonhoeffer Leiter eines Predigerseminars der Bekennenden Kirche wurde, weil ihm damit ein Experimentierfeld zur praktischen Umsetzung seiner Gedanken zur Nachfolge zur Verfügung stand.

Mark 15 39 as a Markan Theology of Revelation

Author: Brian K. Gamel
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9780567680235
Release Date: 2017-10-19
Genre: Religion

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus' arrest, trial and execution ends with the Roman centurion who oversees the death process proclaiming Jesus as God's son. Gamel explores two key questions in relation to this moment: what does the centurion mean when he says that Jesus is God's son, and why does he say it? The confession is not made on the basis of any signs nor from any indication that he perceives Jesus' death as honourable or exemplary. This apparent lack of motivation itself highlights a key Markan theme: that this insight is revealed by an apocalyptic act of God, signalled by the tearing of the temple veil. Thus the confession, which we can understand to be made sincerely and knowledgeably, is the result of an act of God's revelation alone. Gamel explores the theory of Mark depicting a story in which all human characters exhibit varying levels of blindness to the spiritual realities that govern their lives. By making a thorough examination of Mark's Gospel – while placing primary focus on the centurion, the study is unlimited and presents a serious examination of the whole Gospel – Gamel concludes his argument with the point that, at the foot of the cross, this blindness is decisively confronted by God's apocalyptic act. The offer of sight to the centurion demonstrates the reconciliation of God and humanity which are otherwise in Mark's Gospel repeatedly presented as antagonistic spheres. Finally, the fact that revelation is offered to a Gentile highlights the inclusion of the nations into the promises of Israel.

Zuhause in Gott

Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Publisher: Arkana
ISBN: 9783641030117
Release Date: 2009-10-02
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

In Dialogform erörtert das Buch die Erfahrung des Lebens, des Sterbens, des Todes und die Expeditionen der Seele danach. Quantenphysik und Wahrnehmungstheorie integriert Walsch ebenso wie buddhistische und andere Weisheitslehren, und was er über die Reise der Seele berichtet, ist im zweifachen Sinne erhellend: Es ist klar, plausibel und lässt unsere Existenz in einem freundlichen, hellen Licht leuchten. In drei Schritten der „Re-Identifikation“, so wird ausgeführt, erfahren wir den so genannten Tod. Im ersten Stadium erleben wir die Trennung vom Körper, verbunden mit der Überraschung, dass das Leben weitergeht und unser Wesenskern nicht mit dem Körper identisch ist. Im zweiten Stadium erleben wir, was wir glauben bzw. erwarten: Hölle, Himmel, Ungewissheit, das Nichts, Erinnerungen an vergangene Leben etc. Das dritte Stadium bringt die Verschmelzung mit der Essenz. Die Identifikation mit der Seele löst sich. Auf diese Erfahrung der Einheit folgt eine nächste Inkarnation. Dieses „westliche Totenbuch“ ist Walschs letztes Buch im beliebten Dialogstil. Eine großartige Synthese der universellen Vorstellungen vom zyklischen Werden und Vergehen! • Jeder will wissen, was nach dem Tod passiert. • Für die Leser von Kübler-Ross, Moody und die Millionen Walsch-Fans. • Walschs große Lesergemeinde wartet seit Jahren auf sein Vermächtnis zum Thema Leben, Tod und Wiedergeburt.
