SoMoreConversations - An overview of Gods plan for MankindWritten as a narrative, but totally based on scripture, events as seen through the eyes of another, are brought together as a comprehensive chronicle of mankinds past, present and future. So what if we could travel through history and talk with the characters we have come to know in the Bible? How would the tapestry of their lives affect our final understanding of the complete plan of God?Now many people have read this novel and were inspired.Others may find that the story does not fit with their current doctrine.In both cases, the reader should review all books in this series to gain a full understanding [See Authors Page for complete list]. For this novel is designed to get the reader to ask questions regarding their faith for it presents details which are often ignored by many. Do not sweep your questions under the rug of ignorance.In Johns revelation he saw the great prostitute (idolatress). She has joined with the rulers of the earth in prostitution (idolatry) and those who live on the earth have been made drunk by the wine of her idolatry [they are unaware they are also performing acts of idolatry]. God calls his people to come out of her, to not share in her sins and by such receive her plagues. Now some would say that we are in the latter days. That would imply that this prostitute would be the church of our time and that there is something fundamentally wrong with its doctrine. But take note, for her title is also the mother of harlots. That means she has many daughter churches who came out from her but also participate in the same false doctrine. [Revelation 17,18]So ask yourself this, what constitutes idolatry?Now some say that Jesus was without sin.I must admit I have trouble with that statement for this reason.The physician Luke states that when Jesus was twelve years of age, (one year short of being called a man and therefore still subject to his parents), he went to Jerusalem to attend the Passover. Unknown to Mary and Joseph, Jesus stayed behind and they were forced to spend three very anxious days searching for him. When they did find him Jesus was quite unconcerned regarding their welfare. Mary was most upset. She asked why Jesus had treated them in this way. She said that they had been greatly distressed.Now I dont know about you, but my Bible states that one of the Ten Commandments is to honor my mother and my father. It is a commandment that comes with a promise. Jesus was not as yet a man and so was under the authority of his parents (and this would certainly include his mother).So when Jesus was at the age of thirty, prior to starting his ministry, the first thing he did was to be baptized by John the baptist. We are told that Johns baptism was for the remission of sin. Was it a symbolic gesture? No it was not. Sin is canceled by the touch of the Holy Spirit and if you might remember, John received the Holy Spirit while in his mothers womb. So during the baptism, the Holy Spirit in John came in contact with the Son of Man and the sin was absolved. For it was only after such that the Spirit of the Lord came down from heaven and entered into Jesus.This was when there was a loud voice from heaven which stated This is my begotten Son in Whom I am well pleased [Mark 1:11]. So who was God talking about? Have you figured it out yet?Conversations is a novel that summarizes the main points discussed in the book series: A Different Way of Looking at Things... [See Authors Page for book list].So before anyone decides to comment on this novel, I would encourage them to read all the books in the series in order to gain a complete understanding, for to act otherwise you may very well be doing yourself (and others) an injustice.[Ver 5-14, April 2014]
