Examines three Jewish chronicles of the First Crusade: the Chronicle of Solomon ben Simson, the Chronicle of Eliezer ben R. Nathan, and the Anonymous Chronicle of Mainz, with the goal to analyze the ideology of martyrdom found in them and to trace its background. Notes the characteristic motifs in these chronicles: joy of martyrdom, heavenly reward to the martyrs, martyrdom as a decree of God, death of martyrs as a promise of the Messianic redemption, and the most unusual for the Jewish literature motif - active martyrdom. The communities suffered a disaster that surpassed all the previous outbursts of anti-Jewish violence in the region, and they wanted to come to terms with it and to infuse it with a meaning. Concludes that although some Biblical and midrashic motifs can be found in the chronicles, the ideology of martyrdom in them share many of its characteristics with the Christian contemporary counterparts. This fact may be attributed either to Christian influence or to a common contemporary European discourse of martyrdom. Notes that medieval Ashkenazic Jews were part of their non-Jewish surroundings in a greater degree than it has been supposed.
From that assumption, people teach that God sometimes wants us sick. In this book, Andrew reveals what Paul's thorn in the flesh was, and it wasn't sickness. If it is God's will to heal everyone, then why isn't everyone healed?

Health is something everyone wants. Billions of dollars are spent each year trying to retain or restore health. It is a basic desire of all mankind. Anyone who likes sickness must be mentally sick! Yet, religion has told us that God is the one who wants us sick. It even tries to make us believe that sickness is a blessing. That's just not true. God wants you well. Healing is in Christ's Atonement. Jesus died for our health just as much as He died for the forgiveness of our sins. This has to be the foundation of our faith for healing. Many Scriptures relate the healing of our bodies and the forgiveness of our sins in the same verse. Jesus went about healing all who were oppressed of the devil and told us to do the same. Jesus hasn't changed, it's the people who represent Him who have changed. What about Paul's thorn in the flesh? It is commonly believed that the apostle Paul had a sickness for which he besought the Lord for healing three times, and the Lord wouldn't heal him. From that assumption, people teach that God sometimes wants us sick. In this book, Andrew reveals what Paul's thorn in the flesh was, and it wasn't sickness. If it is God's will to heal everyone, then why isn't everyone healed? It's not because of God. And it's not just because we don't have enough faith. We do have the faith to be healed. Jesus said the problem is our unbelief - unbelief cancels out faith. Instead of trying to get more faith or bigger faith, we just need a pure faith that isn't negated by unbelief. There are laws that govern the spiritual world just as there are laws that govern the physical realm. Electricity has been around since the beginning of the world, but mankind didn't benefit from electricity until recently, not because it didn't work, but because of our ignorance of the laws of electricity. Likewise, God's healing is here and available. It's only our ignorance of the laws which control the flow of God's power that keeps us from benefiting from it.

Be careful. This book is dangerous. It explores with startling freshness the most important question you could ever ask, and offers with breathtaking courage the most extraordinary answer you could ever imagine. That answer is so theologically revolutionary and so spiritually empowering that it could change the course of human history. If embraced, it most certainly will change your life. There are people and institutions in the world, long in place and long in power, that want neither of these outcomes to occur. They would rather that you put this book down right now. It's up to you.

God has been pursuing man with His unalloyed, unrepentant, unimaginable, unsearchable, and indescribable love. It is such a love that can never cloy, love that can never go sour, and it is such a love that is so deep deeper than what man s mind can contain and fully understand. He just loves man. There is nobody on the surface of earth that can unearth the depth of the love of God. It is too amazing, too marvelous, and too awesome, and man can only scratch its surface. What does God want from man by this amazingly awesome love, and how can he respond to it? Take a ride with me in What Does God Want in Man to discover it.

Your subconscious makes 95% of your decisions. If you deep down believe the LIE that it is spiritual to be poor, then you subconscious will sabotage your life and your finances to keep you spiritual (poor according to your belief system). There is only one thing that can free you from the bondage of a lie,THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!!! The truth will set free this generation. This will be the generation of Christians who get the wealth that was laid up for them. God will take pleasure in the prosperity of his children (psalms 35). God wants you to have an abundance that you can give out off for every good work (II Corinthians 9). God wants you blessed so you can be a blessing.

I understand that it is indeed tough to be a man in God's economy, but we are called to be leaders and to walk in Christ's footprints. Our society has a difficult time placing man in a satisfactory role that would complement the Madison Avenue advertising group or the image-makers of Hollywood. They have decided the roles of leader, head of household, faithful husband and father, and moral compass don't seem to fit anymore. This thinking is totally unacceptable and should raise flags of discontent in every Christian household.
As a group in today's world, men need to take back the responsibilities that they have either given away or have had stolen from them, and collectively become the men that Jesus spoke about in his word. There is no excuse for behavior that is not pleasing to God and therefore not profitable to any man. Do not let your earthly condition dictate your spiritual position.

Why God Wants You Wealthy and Government Wants You Poor attempts to dispel the long-held belief that God does not want his followers to be wealthy, and presents a variety of sources and information to argue why the government conspires to keep people poor and unsuccessful.

Through reliance on Scriptures and stories of successful entrepreneurs, Patterson motivates those who want to improve their financial status and well-being by including advice and helpful tips on many practical topics including: The definition of a true asset Ways to build a vision and a great team How to save money to start a business Methods of investing that will increase wealth How to rise above the naysayers Patterson inspires anyone who is tired of waking up every morning and facing the same drab day to begin tomorrow with a new determination to reach for the stars and create a dream life!

The love God wants to show you he will when you learn to trust in him. Things will be so much greater than what you see for yourself now. God will show up at a moment in your life when you didn't even see it possible. Movement is the thing God wants to see in your life, you need to understand the power, and meaning God gives to all his children that draws them close to him. There is no way to understand anything without God, there is no way to know how to detect the mind of a manipulative man without God. God shows you your purposes in life and he is the only person who can show you these things. In this book, I speak to women all across the world, women who are hurting, some women who just need to hear God's calling over their life. Some of you women may just need healing with this book. You may just need understanding from God in this book, and this is the one to dive into when you need to release the things God wants you to release before he can bless you with what he really wants for you in life. It's not about people, it's about God and yourself at this moment and time and in the future it's not about other people's opinion of you but what God has assigned you to do. God just wants to see you focus on him and your goals, and this book will help you do all of that alone by you pushing yourself to do the things that are important to God. Nothing else matters to God but you rising above all things that were here to break you and hinder you. When I Vronika Jones AKA Majesty started to write this book I never knew it would bring out so much pain in me, I never knew writing would be my gateway to healing trauma and old wounds. I started to release a rape that took place by my ex-husband towards me when we were together, and as I got older I started going through break downs and everything that happen to me by him at that very moment started playing over in my head. Not only was it rape, but he tore a pair of my panties completely off my body. I found out his mother married a rapist, he raped me and my mother was also raped. Generational curses are real, I lived with this for many years and even reported this to authorities. This book helped me to get rid of all the pain he has done and my mother has done hoping to help another one speak her truth when she gets raped instead of holding something so damaging to her soul like I did. I hope this book will help you like it did for me when I was writing it. Something to keep in mind; don't have children unless you are completely healed, you don't want to have your children going through what you should have healed from before having them. Blessings to you all, keep God at the corner of your life, and always remember no matter what a person does to you in life; God will always bring them to their knees right in front of you, so forgive them and move on, one day you will be given the stool to watch them crumble, blessings.

Isaiah 61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captive and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lords favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zionto bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness Instead of mourning and a garment of praise Instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called the oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild an ancient ruin and restore the places long devastated they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Aliens will Shepard your flocks; foreigners will work your field and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the Lord, you will be named ministers of our God you will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.

When God spoke to me about preaching a series of messages on prosperity, I searched the Internet highway for all the books I could find about prosperity. As I searched through the various books online, none of them seemed to line up with what God was sharing with me about prosperity. Even though I did not feel that the books I found via my research were what I was being led to teach, I purchased several of them hoping that there would be something that I had missed while reading the index and the cover. My pastor told me on several occasions that a person should be able to look at the cover of a book and get a good idea whats inside the book.

Dr. Rodriguez Hirsch's life (born in Venezuela, 1954) has been distinguished by a deep desire to help others in spiritual, emotional and physical pain. He wished to study to become a medical doctor, but through a series of life twists he was led to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Chemical and Petroleum Refining Engineering from Colorado School of Mines (Golden, Colorado - USA). In 1997, after more than thirty years of a successful chemical process engineering career that included the Venezuelan petroleum industry and other private business concerns, William accepted God's calling to fulltime service in His Kingdom. As part of his theological and leadership preparation, he attended Regent University (Virginia Beach, Virginia - USA) with a scholarship from the Latin American Leadership Program (LALP), as an outstanding emerging leader. At Regent, William completed a joint Masters degree program in Biblical Studies and Family Counseling and a doctorate in Strategic Leadership in 2003. After receiving spiritual healing from the devastating pain and loss of his beloved child Andreina, age 16, William began to seriously study and research the Biblical foundations and connections of spiritual, emotional and physical healing while ministering to hundreds of people together with his wife Luisa. In 2007 they both established Restoring The Foundation, Inc. (RTF) a Christian non-profit organization. The calling was to teach the church Scriptural truths contained in the Bible related to broken-heartedness and specific areas of spiritual/emotional captivity and oppression according to Jesus' ministry model stated in Luke 4:18-19 and Isaiah 61:1ff. RTF has become a vibrant international ministry that is touching the lives of thousands as the Body of Christ learns about on-going miracles, signs and wonders that attest to God's Kingdom being ushered on earth.

I was a member of the highschool class of 1957. When the statler brothers came out with the song the "class of 57" that said the class of 57 had a dream we all thought we would change the world with our great words and dreams I could identify, with it very well. Now, 56 years later it seems that the world has changed for the worse, this book presents someone who really did change the world with his great, words and deeds, his name is Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth). He fulfilled a promise made by God to a man named Abraham in Genesis 26:4 that in his seed of the nations of the earth would be blessed. he is our only hope of a better future.
