A search for the Beast, a Yeti-like creature within the heart of the Amazon, becomes a quest for self-discovery in this young adult coming-of-age story filled with international adventure, rich mythology, and magical realism from globally celebrated novelist Isabel Allende. Fifteen-year-old Alexander Cold has the chance to take the trip of a lifetime. Parting from his family and ill mother, Alexander joins his fearless grandmother, a magazine reporter for International Geographic, on an expedition to the dangerous, remote world of the Amazon. Their mission, along with the others on their team—including a celebrated anthropologist, a local guide and his young daughter Nadia, and a doctor—is to document the legendary Yeti of the Amazon known as the Beast. Under the dense canopy of the jungle, Alexander is amazed to discover much more than he could have imagined about the hidden worlds of the rain forest. Drawing on the strength of the jaguar, the totemic animal Alexander finds within himself, and the eagle, Nadia's spirit guide, both young people are led by the invisible People of the Mist on a thrilling and unforgettable journey to the ultimate discovery.

Siew seeks to examine the events that will unfold within the three and a half years before the dawn of the kingdom of God on earth. He argues that John composed the textual unit of Rev 11:1--14:5 as a coherent and unified literary unit structured in a macro-chiasm. He pays special attention to the fusion of form and content and seeks to elucidate how the concentric and chiastic pattern informs the meaning of the literary units within 11:1--14:5, and proposes that the text of 11:1--14:5 is best analyzed using Hebraic literary conventions, devices, and compositional techniques such as chiasm, parallelism, parataxis, and structural parallelism. The macro-chiastic pattern provides the literary-structural framework for John to portray that the events of the last three and a half years unfold on earth as a result of what transpires in heaven. Specifically, the war in heaven between Michael and the dragon has earthly ramifications. The outcome of the heavenly war where Satan is defeated and thrown out of heaven to earth results in the war on earth between the two beasts of Rev 13 and the two witnesses of Rev 11. The narrative of the war in heaven (12:7-12) is seen as the pivot of the macro-chiastic structure. Siew pays close attention to the time-period of the three-and-a-half years as a temporal and structural marker which functions to unite the various units in 11:1--14:5 into a coherent and integral whole. The events of the last days will be centred in Jerusalem.

I offer you a fresh and inspired non-fiction book and Bible study guide to the “Book of Revelation / Apocalypse”. This book will take you on a spiritual journey of understanding based on Jesus’ words in the Bible that is different from traditional interpretations of this end-time prophecy. It provides an excellent way to engage with God’s word to seek the truth. This book is based on the idea that Jesus has provided the information in the Gospels that would unlock the mysteries of Revelation. Mat 24:33-34 33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 34 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. God gave us Revelation to show his followers “the things which must shortly take place”. Why shortly? Revelation is addressed to the end-times generation and it is only then that the revelation is to become fully revealed. Now is the time. As I guide you on this journey, I will show you the keys that will transform Revelation into an easily understood message from God. Amazingly, one key is that Revelation was written out of chronological order at God’s direction to seal it up until the end-times. This Revelation guide is filled with ideas and concepts that will keep your Bible study group engaged in “Spirited” discussion. In Chapter 9, "Are We the End-Time Generation?” I describe where we might be in biblical prophecy based on the reordered Revelation. I believe that the end-times have begun and that the baby boomer generation will see the end of it all. This makes understanding Revelation all the more important.

The word apocalypse comes from the Greek word, apokalupsis, which means to disclose, uncover or reveal; hence we get the name, Revelation, the last book of the Bible. The book of the Revelation is given to uncover or disclose the meaning of some of the great mysteries of the Bible. The Apocalypse Explained uncovers many of those mysteries by using the Bible itself to find their meaning. This is the most accurate way of interpreting biblical prophecies. The purpose of The Apocalypse Explained is to connect the prophecies throughout the Bible with our present and with our future. In fact, the very first verse of the Revelation of Christ reveals its purpose; "to show unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass." The majority of the book is for the last days; the time the Bible calls the great tribulation. The fulfillment of the Apocalypse is much closer to a reality than most people believe. Are you ready?

The objective of “The Sacred Scriptures” by John Biermanski, 29th edition - “Special Edition,” also written in German, is to revoke all falsifications in today's Bibles known so far (the New Testament), and to restore the original state of the verses as far as possible. In the present work, you will find the holy and true name of the living Elohim/G-d “YAHWEH” (the Elohim/G-d of Abraham, the Elohim/G-d of Isaac and the Elohim/G-d of Jacob), of the children of Israel (Exodus 3:15), to his glory in this edition, and “The New Covenant ~ The New Testament”, “The Book of Psalms” and “The Book of Daniel”, in which all verses are written in German and English with “Appendix” in English (see the “Table of Contents”). In this part is: "THE BOOK OF REVELATION" and also the very important "APPENDIX" for example "Note about Daniel, Chapter 7, Verses 21-28" and the work of the English Reformers, etc. The author was born in 1963 in North Rhine-Westphalia and completed a traineeship for wholesale and foreign trade in a pharmaceutical wholesale company. In the course of his professional development, he used to be a freelancer but was also officially employed; he has experienced a lot rises and falls throughout his life. While studying the Scriptures, he was led by the Spirit of the only God, the Almighty and the only Holy Father in heaven, whereas, by grace, he could recognize many things that are now presented as heresies to the world. In recent years he has been active in the proclamation of the Word of God in Europe, particularly in Brazil (South America), and has enlightened many people by his message, so that they get to know the true God, His holy name and His will and only obey Him - and start to think about all this, i. e. "so that they finally decide themselves in favour of the living God, instead of against Him, and their names are not erased from the divine 'Book of Life' forever."
