Download and read online Howard Hill in PDF and EPUB This book shows the hidden things in the creation as well as the scriptures that point to Jesus Christ and his purpose. There are "Types and Shadows" of Him in both the creation and the scriptures. The first chapter shows how this body that we walk around in is a good representation of Jesus Christ and His body of Sons. According to Ephesians 4:13 this body is the fullness of Christ. The 2nd chapter shows how a simple stalk of corn indicates how God brought forth His son Jesus and then, later, brings forth the Body of Sons that are in Him. The 3rd chapter brings out many ways the number 3 shows the perfection in the Jesus People. For instance 3 men were thrown into Nebuchadnezzar's furnace. They came out without any harm at all. This is a type of the people in this day who will go through the Antichrist tribulation furnace. The number three is a very important number in God's word. It is the number in the Godhead. Chapter 4 shows how the sun is a type of Jesus. The moon that shines on reflected light is a type of Satan. The trees are types of good, holy men of God. This chapter brings out many evil things going on in this world today. Chapter 5 shows that the birth of Jesus was a natural birth like everyone. He was made like all men yet without sin. He was a legal redeemer, not a Babylonian fairy tale.

Download and read online Halo Primordium in PDF and EPUB The second in a new series of three HALO novels, Greg Bear's Halo: Primordium dives back into the Forerunner saga. A long time ago, I was a living, breathing human being. I went mad. I served my enemies. They became my only friends. Since then, I've traveled back and forth across this galaxy, and out to the spaces between galaxies--a greater reach than any human before me. You have asked me to tell you about that time. Since you are the last true Reclaimer, I must obey. Are you recording? Good. Because my memory is failing rapidly. I doubt I'll be able to finish the story. Once, on my birth-world, a world I knew as Erde-Tyrene, and which now is called Earth, my name was Chakas... In the wake of apparent self-destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans--Chakas and Riser--are like flotsam washed up on very strange shores indeed. Captured by the Master Builder, misplaced during a furious battle in space, they now find themselves on an inverted world where horizons rise into the sky, and where humans of all kinds are trapped in a perilous cycle of horror and neglect. For they have become both research animals and strategic pawns in a cosmic game whose madness knows no end--a game of ancient vengeance between the powers who seeded the galaxy with life, and the Forerunners who expect to inherit their sacred Mantle of duty to all living things. In the company of a young girl and an old man, Chakas begins an epic journey across a lost and damaged Halo in search of a way home, an explanation for the warrior spirits rising up within, and for the Librarian's tampering with human destiny. This journey will take them into the Palace of Pain, the domain of a powerful and monstrous intelligence who claims to be the Last Precursor, and who now has control of both this Halo and the fate of Forerunners and Humans alike. Called the Captive by Forerunners, and the Primordial by ancient human warriors, this intelligence has taken charge of, and retasked, the Master Builder's cruel researches into the Flood--which it may have itself unleashed on the galaxy more than ten thousand years before.

Download and read online Atilus the Gladiator in PDF and EPUB From the cold, misty shores of Britain, which the Emperor Claudius had invaded, Atilus Cindras was taken as a boy slave to work and fight for the greater glory of the Roman Empire. Eventually, he was sent to a gladiator school, and there trained to fight--and perhaps die--in the arena. But Atilus survives the years of decadent slaughter, and gradually gains power and riches as he navigates through the steamy politics of ancient Rome under the Emperor Nero. But Nero is a spoiled, selfish ruler who is forever seeking the favor of the Roman masses. And when he decides to appease the people's lust for something new and original in the ring, he picks Atilus to train the first troupe of female gladiators. Little does Atilus know, however, that he's being played, both by the Emperor and by his cronies--just a little joke: a second troupe of female fighters to be pitted against the twenty women that Atilus is managing. And if Atilus loses, he'll be made a slave once more! The second novel in the Atilus Saga features more rousing action and political intrigue by a master storyteller!
