John the Divine, and this became the Revelation. Over the centuries, this Revelation has been in plain sight, yet, not understood, or misunderstood, and the reason is because only the Christ Mind in man can reveal the Truth of Being. Not until the year , did a man sit still in meditation over many months, until, at last, the entire message of the Revelation was revealed once again.
That man was Herb Fitch. This two volume set of books covers the entire Revelation of St.
Notes and Commentary
John the Divine, the interpretation of which was received in Consciousness from the Christ Mind and spoken through Herb Fitch in a series of talks recorded on tapes. Transcribing this work work involved hours upon hours of dedication by many individuals. These individuals also sat in meditation before beginning to type the transcripts, and before beginning to edit the texts; so that all may be receptive to the Christ Mind while working on this Revelation and this message may be presented again to the world with integrity, preserving the Truth.
It is suggested that you find a quiet place and read only one chapter at a time, until Something calls to you from these pages. Then, put these writings down, and walk away, find a place and sit down to meditate on what has stirred you within.
I can tell you with a certainty born of experience that you can walk in another Dimension, right here, and right now, the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. He graduated from Warner Southern College in Lake Wales, Florida, and has completed graduate work in child development and counseling.
Therefore "all Scripture is divinely inspired and has its use for teaching the truth and refuting error, for reformation of manners and discipline in right living, so that the man who belongs to God may be efficient and equipped for good work of every kind" 2 Tim. However, since God speaks in Sacred Scripture through men in human fashion, 6 the interpreter of Sacred Scripture, in order to see clearly what God wanted to communicate to us, should carefully investigate what meaning the sacred writers really intended, and what God wanted to manifest by means of their words. To search out the intention of the sacred writers, attention should be given, among other things, to "literary forms.
The interpreter must investigate what meaning the sacred writer intended to express and actually expressed in particular circumstances by using contemporary literary forms in accordance with the situation of his own time and culture. But, since Holy Scripture must be read and interpreted in the sacred spirit in which it was written, 9 no less serious attention must be given to the content and unity of the whole of Scripture if the meaning of the sacred texts is to be correctly worked out.
The living tradition of the whole Church must be taken into account along with the harmony which exists between elements of the faith. It is the task of exegetes to work according to these rules toward a better understanding and explanation of the meaning of Sacred Scripture, so that through preparatory study the judgment of the Church may mature.
For all of what has been said about the way of interpreting Scripture is subject finally to the judgment of the Church, which carries out the divine commission and ministry of guarding and interpreting the word of God. In Sacred Scripture, therefore, while the truth and holiness of God always remains intact, the marvelous "condescension" of eternal wisdom is clearly shown, "that we may learn the gentle kindness of God, which words cannot express, and how far He has gone in adapting His language with thoughtful concern for our weak human nature.
In carefully planning and preparing the salvation of the whole human race the God of infinite love, by a special dispensation, chose for Himself a people to whom He would entrust His promises. First He entered into a covenant with Abraham see Gen. To this people which He had acquired for Himself, He so manifested Himself through words and deeds as the one true and living God that Israel came to know by experience the ways of God with men. Then too, when God Himself spoke to them through the mouth of the prophets, Israel daily gained a deeper and clearer understanding of His ways and made them more widely known among the nations see Ps.
The plan of salvation foretold by the sacred authors, recounted and explained by them, is found as the true word of God in the books of the Old Testament: these books, therefore, written under divine inspiration, remain permanently valuable. The principal purpose to which the plan of the old covenant was directed was to prepare for the coming of Christ, the redeemer of all and of the messianic kingdom, to announce this coming by prophecy see Luke ; John ; 1 Peter , and to indicate its meaning through various types see 1 Cor.
Now the books of the Old Testament, in accordance with the state of mankind before the time of salvation established by Christ, reveal to all men the knowledge of God and of man and the ways in which God, just and merciful, deals with men. These books, though they also contain some things which are incomplete and temporary, nevertheless show us true divine pedagogy. Christians should receive them with reverence. God, the inspirer and author of both Testaments, wisely arranged that the New Testament be hidden in the Old and the Old be made manifest in the New.
The word of God, which is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe see Rom. For when the fullness of time arrived see Gal. Christ established the kingdom of God on earth, manifested His Father and Himself by deeds and words, and completed His work by His death, resurrection and glorious Ascension and by the sending of the Holy Spirit. Having been lifted up from the earth, He draws all men to Himself see John , Greek text , He who alone has the words of eternal life see John This mystery had not been manifested to other generations as it was now revealed to His holy Apostles and prophets in the Holy Spirit see Eph.
Now the writings of the New Testament stand as a perpetual and divine witness to these realities. It is common knowledge that among all the Scriptures, even those of the New Testament, the Gospels have a special preeminence, and rightly so, for they are the principal witness for the life and teaching of the incarnate Word, our savior.
The Church has always and everywhere held and continues to hold that the four Gospels are of apostolic origin. For what the Apostles preached in fulfillment of the commission of Christ, afterwards they themselves and apostolic men, under the inspiration of the divine Spirit, handed on to us in writing: the foundation of faith, namely, the fourfold Gospel, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Holy Mother Church has firmly and with absolute constancy held, and continues to hold, that the four Gospels just named, whose historical character the Church unhesitatingly asserts, faithfully hand on what Jesus Christ, while living among men, really did and taught for their eternal salvation until the day He was taken up into heaven see Acts Indeed, after the Ascension of the Lord the Apostles handed on to their hearers what He had said and done. This they did with that clearer understanding which they enjoyed 3 after they had been instructed by the glorious events of Christ's life and taught by the light of the Spirit of truth.
Besides the four Gospels, the canon of the New Testament also contains the epistles of St. Paul and other apostolic writings, composed under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, by which, according to the wise plan of God, those matters which concern Christ the Lord are confirmed, His true teaching is more and more fully stated, the saving power of the divine work of Christ is preached, the story is told of the beginnings of the Church and its marvelous growth, and its glorious fulfillment is foretold.
The Church has always venerated the divine Scriptures just as she venerates the body of the Lord, since, especially in the sacred liturgy, she unceasingly receives and offers to the faithful the bread of life from the table both of God's word and of Christ's body. She has always maintained them, and continues to do so, together with sacred tradition, as the supreme rule of faith, since, as inspired by God and committed once and for all to writing, they impart the word of God Himself without change, and make the voice of the Holy Spirit resound in the words of the prophets and Apostles.
Therefore, like the Christian religion itself, all the preaching of the Church must be nourished and regulated by Sacred Scripture. For in the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven meets His children with great love and speaks with them; and the force and power in the word of God is so great that it stands as the support and energy of the Church, the strength of faith for her sons, the food of the soul, the pure and everlasting source of spiritual life.
Consequently these words are perfectly applicable to Sacred Scripture: "For the word of God is living and active" Heb. Easy access to Sacred Scripture should be provided for all the Christian faithful. That is why the Church from the very beginning accepted as her own that very ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament which is called the septuagint; and she has always given a place of honor to other Eastern translations and Latin ones especially the Latin translation known as the vulgate. But since the word of God should be accessible at all times, the Church by her authority and with maternal concern sees to it that suitable and correct translations are made into different languages, especially from the original texts of the sacred books.
And should the opportunity arise and the Church authorities approve, if these translations are produced in cooperation with the separated brethren as well, all Christians will be able to use them. The bride of the incarnate Word, the Church taught by the Holy Spirit, is concerned to move ahead toward a deeper understanding of the Sacred Scriptures so that she may increasingly feed her sons with the divine words.
Therefore, she also encourages the study of the holy Fathers of both East and West and of sacred liturgies. Catholic exegetes then and other students of sacred theology, working diligently together and using appropriate means, should devote their energies, under the watchful care of the sacred teaching office of the Church, to an exploration and exposition of the divine writings.
This should be so done that as many ministers of the divine word as possible will be able effectively to provide the nourishment of the Scriptures for the people of God, to enlighten their minds, strengthen their wills, and set men's hearts on fire with the love of God. Sacred theology rests on the written word of God, together with sacred tradition, as its primary and perpetual foundation.

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest and true review. What can I say? Wright-Hammer did it again!
Does this mean everything in 'The OA' is fake?
I really thought that the previous novel was standalone, but I was excited to see that it wasn't. Ryan continues with his life in his new body, and everything that comes with being in a new body not that I would know , i. This book makes you think! I love stories that make the reader ponder. I recommend both of his novels. Everyone s I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest and true review.
Everyone should go get their copies now! You won't be disappointed. Apr 26, Mrs. Y rated it really liked it Shelves: book-reviews , dystopian-review , fiction-reviews , sci-fi-review. Having had your fill of the dual personalities from the first book, are you ready for a review of the second? This time there is a lot more at stake. Climb up the tree but watch for baby birds, never trust the guy at the Post Office Box and do your best to find Ryan in the crowd.
I was able to Having had your fill of the dual personalities from the first book, are you ready for a review of the second? I was able to download and go, and I appreciated it. Again we are on a journey of discovery with Ryan and Helen, but this time there are a lot more twists and turns than there was the last time with Charlie.
To begin, this part of the review I usually save for my first impressions. It is a mystery in a way but, it is a complicated journey more than a "Who-Done-It. The plot is so in depth, and each character has plenty of things going on. Additionally, there are so many sub-plots, plot devices, and alternating POV sections, that without a mystery journal it may be tough to keep it all together.
Revelations (The Forsaken Saga, #2) by Sophia Sharp
This situation is one time that my professional reader status with keeping notes and scores works in my favor. Give the essential characters their page to keep notes.
A mystery journal will help you with following along and not dropping any clues along the way. Now with all of that in mind, let me transition into critiques. Now I preface this critique with a factoid, in that the slow pace has to do with the amount of density to the story. So be aware of that. Instead, enjoy the slow because it picks up later. Moreover, why is this a critique? Mostly because the slow pacing causes the reader to become inconsistent compared to the rest of the story, and I want you all to have the heads up.
Second, from the same category, we have the unbroken walls of text. Again, this is a giant rectangle to read with no breather just like the first book. So, I had to research a couple of things because there is much in the way of medical plotting, with researching and test subjects, and I will be honest; some of it lost me entirely. So I had to research it. For one thing, I did admire how the character of Ryan has grown, and how he still struggles with the same shortcomings from time to time. Sometimes writers forget what makes their MC special from one book to the next, and that character is different all of a sudden.
In this case it Ryan retained who he was through everything. Another thing I enjoyed was how Helen was no longer a background or side character but more critical. Helen is delightful, and what happens to her I also found interesting. The character of Natalie I felt was interesting, but toward the end of the book, I think she gets lost a bit. There is a part about a doctor, a birds nest and an interesting tree climb sequence; I want to point out. I found this a relatable scene about childhood and how some things we do as a kid can shape how we act as adults.
The doctor in and of himself was not the best kind of human, but he had very human flaws, and I enjoyed those elements of the character. Though that said, I did feel that where he was positioned both at the beginning and toward the end of the book, well-accented point to the story. Next, the spot check on the grammar, spelling and the work done on the story was great. I found no punctuation errors that I had any problems with, the words made sense, and there was no issue with anything involving the craft of writing in my opinion.
