Jesus Delayed: What The Bible Is Really Teaching About The Rapture

With so many different and, at times, conflicting views within multiple Christian denominations, it can be a challenge to discern the truth from erroneous teaching. The popular, mainstream view is that Jesus will soon return to take his children—via the Rapture—thus sparing them from the suffering that will engulf the world during the tribulation, when Satan is fully let loose upon the earth.

However, by laying out a relentlessly researched argument author J.E. Gulbrandsen invites you to consider a compelling, reliable, and rigorous exploration of why the commonly held view—based on dispensationalism—is not, in fact, biblically accurate. His teaching clearly fall in the ballpark of Partial Preterism.

In fact, the Kingdom of Christ has been already established. We see evidence of this today, and once we fully apprehend what this means for us as believers, our walk with Christ, and our work for the Kingdom, will be profoundly impacted. Instead of fearing the enemy, we can walk in confidence and power knowing that Satan is bound. This is not a future event—it is done! Jesus won over Satan on the cross; he is now “under our feet,” tied up for “a thousand years” in the Abyss. With so much discouragement and bad news barraging us from every side, of this we can be certain: things are not getting worse. As you will discover in Jesus Delayed, they are, in fact, getting better and better, and will continue to do so until Christ finally returns, as promised, for his victorious bride—the Church!

Naturality: Living according to our nature, walking our own path

We are born from nature, sustained by nature and eventually return to nature. Yet somehow, we are separated from that very nature, both within and without. This leads to fear, conflict and sorrow within and the destruction of nature outside. Why does this happen and how does it happen?

Naturality is the process of understanding the cause of this fear, conflict and discontent. Naturality is also the process of understanding how to free ourselves from this prison. We have to become our own teachers, open the book of life, investigate and find the answers on our own, like scientists. No one can provide us with the answers to our existential problems. Naturality is “to live according to our nature and walk our own path.” Then we can truly call ourselves Naturals.

Acceptance is not Surrender: A little girl, an old man and one man's story of hope

This is a story about accepting loss rather than getting beaten by it.

It’s about redefining oneself after a crippling disease by living the ups and downs of self-discovery. Far from giving up, acceptance is living a life of disciplined thought and action, searching for newfound strengths to replace those that have been lost. It’s about the strength of the human spirit.

It’s about perseverance, not only for the survivor but also for those closest to him. It’s about relationships and what loss does to test their strength and elasticity. It’s finding a way to move forward individually and collectively despite the obstacles. Whether it’s changing roles within the family, completing the paperwork for the body’s most basic function, confronting suicide, or walking “with no hands”, each of these activities, and more, all came with their specific challenges and rewards.

The hard to find answers to the questions that started this journey are unique to the writer. They are presented not as a manifesto to follow, but as a starting point for you that you may find something here that can help you find your answers, unique to you.

Why is "limerick" spelled incorrectly in this book?

This book has over 650 limericks, best described this way...Perchance, might you find time to peruse / my book of lim-ricks while on your cruise? / Most are clean…none obscene. / Most are gentle…none mean… / and all are intended to amuse.

The word “limerick” is purposely spelled incorrectly and you will discover why in Chapter 1...”The Anatomy of a Lim-rick”. Other chapters bear names like... (2) Lawyers; (3) Death & Dying; (3) Animals; (4) “Sandusky-gate”; (5) Geriatrics; (6) Irish Culture; (7) Politics & Historical Events; (8) 50’s and 60’s music; (9) Food Prep & Menus; (10) Adventures of Jack & Jill; (11) A Farewell Roast & Toast; (12) Honoring the Twelve Months-of the-Year; (13) Lim-ricks that Ask Questions; (14) The Three R’s; (15) Flotsam & Jetsam; and (16) Miscellaneous.

The (almost) 150 lim-ricks, in the last two mentioned chapters, defy easy categorization. Here are some examples...Past performance is no guarantee / of future reliability. / Since his escapade / in his Escalade / Tiger’s had no “MAJOR” victory.

I suffer from chronic repition / trying to maser basic diction. If I had a hammer /I’d destroy my stammer / and be free to speak without friction.

When Johnny Doesn't Come Marching Home: A Compelling Human Interest Story About a 20 Year Old Boy's Search for Adventure in World War One

In 2017, the United States of America will be celebrating the Centennial of World War I. 1st Sergeant JOHN RUSSELL SMALL was a Veteran of that War. This is a true account of his experiences before, during and after the War, as written by his daughter, MARIAN SMALL, who set out at the age of 89 years to tell the story of a 20 year old boy whose love of adventure took him in 1916 to the Texas/Mexican border to join Brigadier-General John J. Pershing in the pursuit of Pancho Villa, the Mexican bandit, and then in 1918 to the trenches in France and No Man’s Land.

At her Dad’s death in 1978, Marian inherited his collection of memorabilia which dates back 100 years to the time of his enlistment in the Ohio National Guard in 1916. Included were historic photographs and the original letters that John had written to his parents and to his sweetheart, Mary, (later his wife) as well as a 1918 Diary that he took with him when he was sent over the sea to France. John kept the Diary with him on the many nights when he led his Platoon as they marched for miles in the dark, in rain and mud, to the various trenches in No Man’s Land. Even in the cootie and rat-filled trenches, with the sounds and dangers of the war going on all around him, he continued to write in the Diary and in his letters describing in detail the war as he was witnessing it.

This is a compelling human interest story that recognizes the valor of the doughboys in WWI. Those who returned to the country they loved faced many hardships, including the Great Depression. The war, however, had given them the will to survive and it was through them and their stubbornness, frugality, pride and a firm belief in disciplining their children that a generation was born that, in later years, after a second World War, became know as the greatest generation.
