This is a story of survival, redemption, and salvation. In this brutally honest narrative, Joseph Turner doesn't flinch from the details of his personal failings, the downward spiral of his life, and his return to happiness and fulfillment through the grace of God. Moreover, Turner reveals the astonishing truth about our existence, that we have the power to become as gods, under God. We are open to the fruits of His benevolence, if we allow ourselves to be.
But Turner's miraculous adventure is more than a recounting of his fall from God's grace and his return to The Path of righteousness. He gives a detailed summary of what steps he took to regain his health, how he shed bad habits and cultivated good ones, and how he came to understand what is meant by love.
His struggle against personal demons is braided with eye-opening revelations of government surveillance worthy of Big Brother. Turner shares his experience what happens when the New World Order puts the individual under the microscope and rips apart any notion of privacy. And equally disturbing, Turner relates his experience with the VA, who churn him through a bureaucratic machine, only to deny him needed medical care.
Turner shows that we all have access to a transcendent joy that rises above society's norms, to a life of peace and free of judgment, to a blessed reality if we allow ourselves to recognize that we are living in the light of the Lord's magnificence in the Kingdom of God that is at hand.
George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, but more commonly known as just Byron was a leading English poet in the Romantic Movement along with Keats and Shelley. Byron was born on January 22nd, 1788. He was a great traveller across Europe, spending many years in Italy and much time in Greece. With his aristocratic indulgences, flamboyant style along with his debts, and a string of lovers he was the constant talk of society. In 1823 he joined the Greeks in their war of Independence against the Ottoman Empire, both helping to fund and advise on the war's conduct. It was an extraordinary adventure, even by his own standards. But, for us, it is his poetry for which he is mainly remembered even though it is difficult to see where he had time to write his works of immense beauty. But write them he did. He died on April 19th 1824 after having contracted a cold which, on the advice of his doctors, was treated with blood-letting. This cause complications and a violent fever set in. Byron died like his fellow romantics, tragically young and on some foreign field.
This is the first of three volumes, first published in 1906, which explore the Egyptian theology of the afterlife. It contains the complete hieroglyphic text of the Book Ã…m-Tuat, with translations and reproductions of all the illustrations. This text, at least in the form that we have it, was produced by the priests of Ã…men-Ra at Thebes, with the intention of demonstrating that their god was the overlord of all the gods, and the supreme power in the universe.
The object of all the Books of the Other World was to provide the dead with a 'guide' or 'handbook,' containing a description of the regions through which their souls would have to pass on their way to the Kingdom of Osiris, and which would supply them with the words of power and magical names necessary for an unimpeded journey from this world to the next.
