Th Messiah The author of this book, Th Messiah, wishes to extend and invitation to all Jews to reconsider what the Lord God's prophets of old had to say relative to the promised Messiah. Is He to be the One who would come strictly as a conquering hero after the similitude of King David or is He, in fact, One Who is even more powerful than that: One Who could not only conquer death but One who could put away even sin for all eternity? Just how big (or small) is the Jewish Messiah? The author would also like to extend an invitation to all believers to reconsider realistically a variety of factors, not the least being the Blessed Hope, which hinge and revolve around and upon the seven major Festivals of the Jewish faith. Yeshua Himself said, "Think not that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say unto you, 'Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.'" (Matthew 5:17-18) The seven basic festivals of the Jewish faith are a major part of the law and the prophets. Yeshua has fulfilled to the very day the first four festivals and shortly He shall fulfill the last three festivals to the day! Perhaps even more important, the author would like to extend to the nonbeliever an invitation to reconsider, in light of all eternity, the path upon which has been chosen. Yeshua extends the following invitation to one and everyone irregardless: "Come now, and let us reason together...though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)
Or Seven Books of Wisdom of the Great Path, According to the Late L=ama Kazi Dawa-Samdup's English Rendering

Books, audiotapes, and classes about yoga are today as familiar as they are widespread, but we in the West have only recently become engaged in the meditative doctrines of the East--only in the last 70 or 80 years, in fact. In the early part of the 20th century, it was the pioneering efforts of keen scholars like W. Y. Evans-Wentz, the late editor of this volume, that triggered our ongoing occidental fascination with such phenomena as yoga, Zen, and meditation. Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines--a companion to the popular Tibetan Book of the Dead, which is also published by Oxford in an authoritative Evans-Wentz edition--is a collection of seven authentic Tibetan yoga texts that first appeared in English in 1935. In these pages, amid useful photographs and reproductions of yoga paintings and manuscripts, readers will encounter some of the principal meditations used by Hindu and Tibetan gurus and philosophers throughout the ages in the attainment of Right Knowledge and Enlightenment. Special commentaries precede each translated text, and a comprehensive introduction contrasts the tenets of Buddhism with European notions of religion, philosophy, and science. Evans-Wentz has also included a body of orally transmitted traditions and teachings that he received firsthand during his fifteen-plus years of study in the Orient, findings that will interest any student of anthropology, psychology, comparative religion, or applied Mah=ay=ana Yoga. These seven distinct but intimately related texts will grant any reader a full and complete view of the spiritual teachings that still inform the life and culture of the East. As with Evans-Wentz's other three Oxford titles on Tibetan religion, which are also appearing in new editions, this third edition of Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines features a new foreword by Donald S. Lopez, author of the recent Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West.

This sensational book written by Carl Brice will edify your spirit concerning the will of God. The Bible teaches us that we are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Therefore, through knowledge and faith in the risen Savior, you can be certain that your name will appear in the Lambs Book of Life. This wealth of information complied together is designed to draw souls closer to God. Our Heavenly Father demonstrated great love for his creation when he gave his only begotten Son Jesus to be a living sacrifice for a sinful world. There is no other form of worship known to man that imparts this type of unconditional love. Therefore, we should be extremely grateful for the priceless gift of salvation God has given us. The Lambs Book of Life contains the necessary information which will illuminate the path to eternal life in Christ Jesus. To the one who accepts the redemption of the Lord, the same will find their name written in the Lambs Book of Life. www.EdifyYourSpirit.com
The book Turn Around and See the Lord takes inspiration from the experience that Mary Magdalene had with Christ Jesus and His angels at the Lord's sepulchre. The author relates Mary's human frailties to the emotional discomfort, stress, poverty, famine, social mishaps and political servitude that may come upon us. These hardships, she believes, are inflicted upon some believers because of their wickedness, stubbornness, unbelief and lack of simple trust in Jehovah God. She recommends that there is a need for a change or repentance. The author has put together more than twenty renowned biblical characters and her personal-life testimony to address some of the challenges our generation is facing with idol worship and adulterous and obnoxious practices.
