"Drawing insights from gender studies and the environmental humanities, Demonic Bodies analyzes how ancient Christians constructed the Christian body through its relations to demonic adversaries. Case studies on New Testament texts, early Christian church fathers, and "Gnostic" writings trace how early followers of Jesus construed the demonic body in diverse and sometimes contradictory ways, as both embodied and bodiless, "fattened" and ethereal, heavenly and earthbound. Across this diversity of portrayals, however, demons consistently functiond as personfications of "deviant" bodily practices such as "magical" rituals, immoral sexual acts, gluttony, and "pagan" religious practices. This demonization served an exclusionary function whereby Christian writers marginalized fringe Christian groups by linking their ritual activities to demonic modes of (dis)embodiment. Demonic Bodies demonstrates, therefore, that the formation of early Christian cultures was part of the shaping of broader Christian "ecosystems," which in turn informed Christian experiences of their own embodiment and community"--
It had positioned itself at an angle where the fallen angels who had been left behind could clearly look up and see the others who had gone into the mirror and that they were trying valiantly to find a way back out.

There’s a battle brewing on Earth, and it has been for centuries, between the loyal angels to God and the Fallen who took the side of Lucifer after the Great War in Heaven. Thankfully, Earth is watched over by the Archangels and by the lower level angels who have been ordered to take human form to keep a watchful eye on Mankind for God. Jakiele is one such supernatural being. But the war that started in Heaven is far from over as the Fallen will do whatever it takes to once again gain dominion over the Earth and determine man’s fate. Zadikiele is the one demon they can count on to follow orders without question and see their evil goals to fruition. Zadikiele has no fear and will use or kill anyone who gets in his way and is ruthless enough to take on any angel foolish enough to stand against him. Jakiele is forced into the fray when the woman he is forbidden to love becomes accidentally entangled in the Fallen’s malevolent plans. Zadikiele has every intention of using her to his advantage to accomplish the Fallen’s goals and then dispose of her. And so begins Jakiele’s race across time and space to not only save her, but mankind as well even if it means he has to give up his own immortal soul.

Spiritual warfare is not a church fad. Rather, it is the rediscovery of biblical Christianity. Furthermore, one will not grasp what the Bible teaches until one comprehends what it affirms about spiritual warfare. In truth, spiritual warfare permeates the entire Bible. When one learns to read the Scriptures through the lens of spiritual warfare, one will discern the mission of God, understand the kingdom of God, and be able to participate in the work of God. As a professional theologian, seminary professor, and spiritual warfare practitioner, Bill Payne believes that the church will not make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20) until it operationalizes what the Bible teaches about spiritual warfare. As it orients the reader to the spiritual warfare mandate, Satan Exposed tackles the difficult passages of Scripture. In short, this book will change how you read the Bible, how you understand reality, and how you do ministry.

The Rise of The Antichrist carefully investigates the measurable effects of politics, religion, science and technology on the human psyche. All mainstream religions traditionally share similar perspectives regarding the Antichrist and his developing systems, which have been foretold by all prophets or messengers dutifully sent to every nation over time. This book carefully explores the much-debated topic of the Antichrist, regarding his future emergence. Will he lead humanity to eternal darkness, or enlightenment? Although modern science and human history popularly refer to the last 5,000–15,000 years of development, in reality, there are signs and evidence that human development is considerably older, with possibilities of supernatural or otherworldly intervention. This book explores stories such as the Nimrod who meticulously researched into longevity and occult magic, with a possibility of alien or supernatural influence which was captured on stone glyphs. Throughout history, there have been developed, mighty empires whose chosen kings proclaimed to be Gods... But were they actually inter-dimensional beings? This book will ideally suit readers with an active interest in religion, historical events and those interested in a thought-provoking read.
