It was the atheist, Jean Paul Sartre, who once said that, "Hell is other people." Rowland Stenrud's Yeshua, the Crucified Serpent is about how mankind's savior, Jesus of Nazareth, has saved men and women from this hell by making it possible, and indeed inevitable, for human beings to love one another and their Creator-Father, Yahweh God. This book is about the concept and practice of human and divine love. The words of Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, the Bible as a whole, and the reader's life experience will help in defining this. The author reviews what he knows about the concept and its related precepts and brings them to bear in this book. God himself is love, which should tell us how mysterious a thing love is. To acquire this ability to love, one must suffer in union with the suffering Christ. Salvation, pure and simple, is God delivering each one from the inability to love other human beings and the Creator Himself. The obstacle to this perfect love is the serpent of human wisdom and pride that existed even in Jesus. In his loving obedience to the Father, Jesus nailed this serpent to the cross. Yeshua, the Crucified Serpent attempts to show that the question of evil and suffering in the world is answered by Yahweh's eventual success in saving all of mankind. The majority of Christians believe in a number of key doctrines that the biblical authors do not unequivocally teach. A few verses may support these unbiblical doctrines but a greater number of verses, whose meaning is clearer, contradict the standard interpretation of these few verses. Other doctrines that Christians mistakenly believe in find support in this or that section of the Bible but are denied by the general thrust of the Bible as a whole. These unbiblical doctrines followed by the correct biblical teaching are: 1. Sometime in the distant past a large number of God's angels rebelled against Him becoming what are called devils or demons whose leader is known as Satan or Lucifer. The Bible teaches that the only agent of evil in the universe is man's heart. 2. Adam and Eve possessed the perfection of Jesus Christ before they sinned. If they had not sinned they would not have needed to be healed of any weakness. The Bible teaches that Adam and Eve could not have had eternal life even before they sinned without the work of Jesus of Nazareth. 3. Faith is an act of the free will of man. The Bible teaches that faith does involve man putting his trust in God's promises and revelation, but it is primarily a power given to man by God in order to enable him to see spiritual truth the natural man cannot see. Without this gift of the Holy Spirit, no human being can know God and be saved. 4. Ultimately speaking, we are saved by our faith. On the contrary, it is through Jesus's faith in and love for the Father that is the instrument of our salvation. 5. Jesus saved us by paying the penalty due our sins and therefore saving us from the just wrath of God. This is false. No one had to pay any penalty for God to forgive the sins of the human race. God relates to sinners on the basis of mercy and mercy is not mercy if the penalty for sin is paid. By going to the cross, Jesus healed our brokenness which forgiveness alone could not accomplish. 6. Satan and the sins of men are ultimately responsible for human suffering. False. God is ultimately responsible for human suffering as it is a necessary part of God's work of saving human beings. God Himself shares in all of our suffering: physical, emotional and spiritual even though He does not have a body or nervous system. 7. Salvation is about our eternal destiny. This is not correct. Salvation is about being saved from the idolatries, addictions, corruption, hatreds, evil deeds that afflict the unsav

There's been an on going struggle between the seed of Satan and the seed of God. Satan has tried numerous times to contaminate the bloodline in which the Messiah of Israel would come. It's been a game of chess between the God of Israel who would bring about these Messianic prophecies, and the enemy of the Jewish people who would like nothing more than to destroy the Jews and those prophecies. To eliminate Israel is to eliminate the promises of God and the return of Jesus. Satan has raised empire after empire, dictator after dictator in his quest to destroy the Jews. These empires no longer exist but the Jewish people still remain. God has made promises to the Jewish prophets that he would preserve the Jewish people. God has preserved the Messianic bloodline in order to bring about those prophecies despite satanic attempts to eliminate them. In this book we go to the very beginning to see how this conflict began and where it will culminate in the greatest battle of all time according to Bible prophecy.August Rosado is the founder of Today in Bible Prophecy Ministries based in Corpus Christi Texas. He travels the country as he preaches at Churches on the soon return of Jesus the Messiah. He and his wife are on full time staff with People's Baptist Church and are representatives of Roloff Homes.

Author: Brian A. Verrett
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
In this study, Brian A. Verrett argues that 1–2 Samuel contains a serpent motif by practicing biblical theology and literary criticism. This motif derives from the serpent in Genesis 3, and its function within the Samuel narrative is to heighten the reader’s anticipation in the coming messiah, who is the son of David and the seed of the woman from Genesis 3:15. This messiah will defeat the serpent and inaugurate his glorious reign over a renewed world. When 1–2 Samuel is read in this way, one appreciates previously unnoticed features of the text, understands aspects of the text that were formerly confusing, and rightly sees that the whole of 1–2 Samuel is a messianic document.

This books storyline is that of reptilians from the Andromeda Galaxy. The first earth ship to meet the reptilians was not a human ship but an advanced ship of the ancient and advanced race of the Vlar. The Vlar were a very high technology ancient race who expected to have no fear of the Snakes. However, the race of reptilians that were rapidly conquering all civilizations with which they came into contact were now a threat to all races, whatever their level of technology. A century ago, the Vlar never expected to be worried about the Snakes, as all civilizations called them. Their conquests had become so rapid and so had their takeover of advanced civilizations and their technology that they were now a threat to every being in the galaxy. The Vlar gave the earth humans some of their high-tech ships as a kind of last effort since they held the earth humans in such low regard. The Vlar thought of the earth humans as warlike, backward, and vicious animals who killed their own kind. However, there were very few options left open to the Vlar, so they gave the earth humans a few of their ships. The Snakes had millions of high-tech ships that carried thousands of Snake soldiers at several times the speed of light. The Vlar gave the earth humans a few dozen Vlar ships. The Snakes were over seven feet tall and weighed over five hundred pounds. They were equipped with fangs and claws like the Tyrannosaurus rex of old earth history. They liked to fight with hands or blade weapons to see the blood flow. They were cannibals in addition to being carnivores. They considered it honorable to eat your defeated foe, and they were not above eating their own children. The Snakes used massed ships in the millions to just roll over all the people they intended to conquer. It was expected of any failed Snake expeditions to commit suicide. The Snakes occupied over 1,400 planets and were continuing to conquer more as time went by. Apparently, none could stand before the Snakes. Could the small blue planet called earth have a chance to survive?

The Serpent and the Swan is a history and analysis of animal bride tales from antiquity to the present. The animal bride tale, the author argues, is an enduring expression of humankind's need to remain close to and a part of nature. Boria Sax traces the idea of the animal bride through history by drawing upon legends and literary works from throughout the world. He pays particular attention to Eurasian sources which support his thesis that the animal bride theme originated among the serpent cults of Mesopotamia and southeastern Europe. Through time, the details of the animal bride theme changed as a result of mankind's changing perceptions of the natural world. In general, this study is an account of myths and beliefs that have surrounded animals--and women--during the rise of modern humankind. The Serpent and the Swan identifies and explains images of the animal bride that pervade, enliven, and enrich our culture. The bride becomes Eve taking an apple from the serpent, Medea casting spells, Cinderella riding to the royal ball in a pumpkin coach, and the Little Mermaid rising from the waves. The Author: Boria Sax, who holds a doctorate in German and intellectual history, is the author of The Frog King and The Parliament of Animals, among other books.
