The Vision of Paul | New Video Series

The Vision of Paul | New Video Series

Hello everyone!

I have started a new video series titled “The Vision of Paul” that I feel would be beneficial to a lot of readers of such material.  Here is the summary directly from the PDF itself.

The Apocalypse of Paul is a 4th-century text of the New Testament apocrypha.[1] There is an Ethiopic version of the Apocalypse which features the Virgin Mary in the place of Paul the Apostle, as the receiver of the vision, known
as the Apocalypse of the Virgin. The text is not to be confused with the gnostic Apocalypse of Paul, which is unlikely to be related. The text appears to be an elaborate expansion and rearrangement of the Apocalypse of Peter, and is essentially a
description of a vision of Heaven, and then of Hell — although it also contains a prologue describing all creation appealing to God against the sin of man, which is not present in Peter’s Apocalypse. At the end of the text, Paul/Mary
manages to persuade God to give everyone in Hell a day off every Sunday.
The text extends Peter’s Apocalypse by framing the reasons for the visits to heaven and hell as the witnessing of the death and judgement of one wicked man, and one who is righteous. The text is heavily moralistic, and adds, to the
Apocalypse of Peter, features such as:

-Pride is the root of all evil
-Heaven is the land of milk and honey
-Hell has rivers of fire and of ice (for the cold hearted)
-Some angels are evil, the dark angels of hell, including Temeluchus, the tartaruchi.

Plan of the book
1, 2. Discovery of the revelation.
3–6. Appeal of creation to God against man
7–10. The report of the angels to God about men.
11–18. Deaths and judgements of the righteous and the wicked.
19–30. First vision of Paradise, including lake Acherusa.
31–44. Hell. Paul obtains rest on Sunday for the lost.
45–51. Second vision of Paradise.
Versions
Greek copies of the texts are rare; those existing containing many omissions. Of the Eastern versions — Syriac, Coptic, Ethiopic, Georgian — the Syriac are considered to be the most reliable. There are also several abridged Latin texts, from which many current versions were translated, into most European languages.”

Are Ghosts Real? Understanding the Spirit World: 

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome and God bless. In this preface video, I would like introduce to you a new series that I’ll be starting, that will cover TWO very important chapters or rather, excerpts from a book that was given to me by my mother that I read from front to back and found extremely interesting and beneficial to my own personal study of the spirit world within various ancient biblical texts. Many of you have probably asked the age-old question, “are spirits real?”  Hence, the title of this series called “Understanding The Spirit World”.  In this series you’ll find out what the bible  As you all know, I only bring you the best of information and research, and this would definitely be one of the most important series of videos on my channel you’ll see to date. The reason for this is because I feel like once everyone has a better understanding of the spirit world and how it operates, whether you believe in it or not, its videos like these that I hope will at least open your mind to the possibility of such a concept. I say this because, I feel like the majority of my viewers breaks down into three types. The first are those who believe all the information within my videos to be factual and historical. The second are those who believe all the information within my videos to be more literature based and allegorical. And of course the third are those who do not believe in any of the information I put out at all. Either way, I don’t judge, I have a very open and neutral heart, and I will continue to share the information with all three groups. Because who’s to say that those who do not believe whatsoever, won’t consider it to be allegorical or even factual in the future. And vice versa for those who do actually believe.

And this is why I do what I do! 

So in this series I would like to read TWO very important chapters from a book titled, “Dispensational Truth: Or God’s Plan and Purpose in the Ages by Clarence Larkin.” And of course by the end of each video if you found the information helpful or if you’d like to get a full copy of the book, you can simply visit the link below this article- the book is actually priced quite affordably in my opinion. Now, I read this entire book front to back and this won’t be the only video in which I cover certain exerpts of the book, but I’ll make videos referencing the most important information that I found within the book, and then you can decide whether or not youd like to purchase the book. But I will say that this is one of the best books I have ever read concerning biblical texts. So let’s go right into it.

The Essene Gospel of Peace Book (Video Series)

The Essene Gospel of Peace Book (Video Series)

The Essene Gospel of Peace Books

The Essene Gospel of Peace is an ancient manuscript found in the Vatican Library. It is a wonderful document of Jesus teaching about how to live in harmony with the laws of nature. I think you will enjoy it immensely. We can’t help but wonder what other Dead Sea scrolls lie hidden in the Vatican vaults that were missed in olden times when the Bible was compiled. If you get a chance, pick up the printed version, it’s only $1 and has beautiful lithographs.

‘The Essenes’ were a third religious sect during the time of Christ who completely separated themselves from all society which was populated by wicked priests and jews- they then migrated out from Jerusalem into the wilderness of the desert, and studied and practiced high levels of spirituality and wisdom- later proclaiming themselves as the new sacred community.

The “Essene Gospel of Peace” in its entirety, covers an extreme deeper understanding of Mother Nature, the importance of health and fasting, the vision of Enoch, the mysteries of the Holy Streams and other amazing contents. And you’ll discover how all of these contents link together.

Here is the “The Essense Gospel of Peace” book series uploaded on my Youtube Channel.

The Story of Adam and Eve (Untold)

PRESENT day controversy that rages around the authenticity of the Scriptures and how human life began on this planet must pause to consider the Adam and Eve story. Where does it come from? What does it mean?

The familiar version in Genesis is not the source of this fundamental legend, it is not a spontaneous, Heaven-born account that sprang into place in the Old Testament. It is simply a version, unexcelled perhaps, but a version of a myth or belief or account handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation of mankind-through the incoherent, unrecorded ages of man it came–like an inextinguishable ray of light that ties the time when human life began, with the time when the human mind could express itself and the human hand could write.

This is the most ancient story in the world–it has survived because it embodies the basic fact of human life. A fact that has not changed one iota; amid all the superficial changes of civilization’s vivid array, this fact remains: the conflict of Good and Evil; the fight between Man and the Devil; the eternal struggle of human nature against sin,

That the Adam and Eve story pervaded the thoughts of ancient writers is seen in the large number of versions that exist, or whose existence may be traced, through the writings of Greeks, Syrians, Egyptians, Abyssinians, Hebrews, and other ancient peoples. As a lawyer might say who examines so much apparently unrelated evidence–there must be something back of it.

The version which we give here is the work of unknown Egyptians (the lack of historical allusion makes it impossible to date the writing). Parts of this version are found in the Talmud, the Koran, and elsewhere, showing what a vital rôle it played in the original literature of human wisdom. The Egyptian author first wrote in Arabic (which may be taken as the original manuscript) and that found its way farther south and was translated into Ethiopic. For the present English translation we are indebted to Dr. S. C. Malan, Vicar of Broadwindsor, who worked from the Ethiopic edition edited by Dr. E. Trumpp, Professor at the University of Munich. Dr. Trumpp had the advantage of the Arabic original, which makes our bridge over the gap of many centuries a direct one.

The reading of these books is an adventure. You will find the mind of man fed by the passions, hopes, fears of new and strange earthly existence rioting, unrestrained, in the zest of self-expression. You roam in the realms of mythology where swiftly the aspects of nature assume manifold personalities, and the amorphous instinct of sin takes on the grotesqueries of a visible devil.

story of adam and eve

“The Forgotten Books of Eden” series is a video series I posted on my Youtube Channel. It gives you a deeper understanding of what went on during the time of Adam and Eve, and also explains a lot that happen in their personal lives. It is the untold story of Adam and Eve not fully covered in Genesis.

*The Untold secrets of Genesis*

 

IN the centuries immediately preceding the Christian Era certain
professional Jewish scribes composed a number of works which may
well be described as “historical romances,” and which were based on the
histories of the patriarchs and others as found in the four main divisions
of the text of the Hebrew Bible. There is little doubt that most of these
works were written either in Hebrew or in the Palestinian vernacular of
the period. One of the oldest of such works appears to be the “Book of
Jubilees” (see page 3), (also called the “Lesser Genesis” and the
“Apocalypse of Moses”), which derives its name from the fact that the
periods of time described in it are Jubilees, i.e.each period contains
forty-nine years. It is more or less a Commentary on the Book of
Genesis. That a version of this book existed in Greek is proved by the
quotations given by Epiphanius, Bishop of Salamis in Cyprus (born
about A.D. 320, and died in 403 or 404), in his work on “Heresies”
(chapter xxxix). The author claimed boldly that his work contains the
revelations which were made to Moses by the command of God by the
Archangel Michael, who is frequently described as the “Angel of the
Face,” The book is not wholly original, for it contains narratives and
traditions derived from the works of earlier writers; and some of the
legends appear to have been taken from early Babylonian sources. The
Hebrew, or Aramean, original is lost, and the complete work is only
found in Ethiopic, in which language it is known as “Kûfâlê,” or
“Sections.” The Ethiopic translation was made from Greek.
Another pre-Christian work, also written by a Jew, is the “Book of
Enoch,” which exists now in a more or less complete form, only in an
Ethiopic translation, which was made from the Greek. This work is
quoted by St. Jude (vv. 14, 15), and there is little doubt that for some three
or four centuries its authority, both among the Jews and the Christians of
the first and second centuries of our Era, was very great. Whether the

“Book of Enoch,” as made known to us by the Ethiopic version, truly
represents the original Hebrew work is fairly open to doubt; in fact, it
seems certain that it does not. It contains a series of fragments or parts of
works, of somewhat similar character, which has been strung together,
and then added to by writers of different schools of religious thought at
different periods. In some parts of it traces have been found of beliefs
which are neither Jewish nor Christian.

 

The “COT (Cave of Treasures) series is the first of many biblical book series posted on my Youtube Channel. The “COT” series is a follow-up to another video on the channel titled “75 Books Removed from the ORIGINAL Bible”, in which I share an audio-narrative format of various biblical books removed from the Bible.

Cave of Treasures takes place after Adam and Eve were thrown out of the Garden. And it mainly goes deeper into WHY Adam and Eve were EXPELLED from the Garden.
