Sea level rise will happen no matter what we do. Even if we stopped all carbon dioxide emissions today, the seas would rise one meter by 2050 and three meters by 2100. This -- not drought, species extinction, or excessive heat waves -- will be the most catastrophic effect of global warming. And it won't simply redraw our coastlines -- agriculture, electrical and fiber optic systems, and shipping will be changed forever. As icebound regions melt, new sources of oil, gas, minerals, and arable land will be revealed, as will fierce geopolitical battles over who owns the rights to them. In The Flooded Earth, species extinction expert Peter Ward describes in intricate detail what our world will look like in 2050, 2100, 2300, and beyond -- a blueprint for a foreseeable future. Ward also explains what politicians and policymakers around the world should be doing now to head off the worst consequences of an inevitable transformation.

Forty years after a devastating flood changed the face of the earth, new consequences and challenges are still surfacing. Twins Will and Annalie thought the hardest part about this year was going to be their separation when bookish Annalie began life at a prestigious Admiralty-run boarding school and avid sailor Will stayed behind in the flood-damaged slums. But that was before the Admiralty raided their father's workshop. Before they sent a questioner to threaten Annalie at school. Before their father disappeared, leaving a single coded clue to his destination. Desperate for answers and to find their father, the twins set out in the family's small sailboat. But though they are both experienced sailors, they have no idea what dangers the sea has in store. In The Flooded Earth, Mardi McConnochie writes adventure at a breakneck pace, drawing readers into a race against pirates, authorities, and the sea itself in a not-so-distant future full of new technology and old human failings.

Please, God, no more hard things. Nicki Koziarz knows what it's like to whisper those words to God. She understands what it feels like to be flooded by hopelessness and hard situations, wondering if it will ever stop. Hard circumstances often stir something so destructive in a soul: doubt. Through the painful loss of her mom to a brain tumor and her brother to suicide, she has learned that if doubt is left undealt with, it can cause the presence of unbelief to flood our lives--to the point that faith becomes unrecognizable. In the midst of her pain, Nicki looked through the lens of the biblical account of Noah and discovered five decisions a person can make to help deflect the destruction of doubt. When you are wrestling with doubt and fighting back hopelessness, Flooded will help you: • Quiet the fear that God won't come through by discovering the difference between wishful thinking and biblical hope. • Resist the urge to control the uncontrollable by finding peace in between the problem and the promise. • Find the familiar faithfulness of God in His Word when it feels like nothing is normal and everything is falling apart. The reality of hard times holds a decision for each of us to find hope. And the decision to find it is yours. But you don't have to do it alone. It's time to rise above doubt, together.

The Hebrew-Christian religion remains the most potent verifiably truthful religion on the planet. It suffers horrendously from murderous oppression in the Middle East, its homeland; and was crushed-flat by the largest political State the world has ever known (Soviet Russia); and it endures heavy disheartenment by flawed innuendo and secularisation throughout Europe. Despite these massive attacks from mistaken religion, hard-line atheists, and dont know-cant be bothered groups yet it remains. And more than this: It remains, philosophically, socially, prophetically, and scientifically the largest, most credible and consistent belief-system on the planet. Its not by accident that non-violent Christianity (believing in the non-violent Ten Commandments and the beautiful spirit of them in the Beatitudes), can survive such intense mentalphysical violent persecution and still remain so vibrant. True Christians know: The only reason it is so, is because the holy Messiah God of Israel is the only true God. He rules over all the kingdoms of men, but its only the kingdom of Christianity which knows this. He loves all humans (but not their thoughtsactions). However only Christians recognise this and sincerely give thanks that He is their God, their prophet, priest and king. He prophesied that enormous ungodliness would come against His church, and followers but these gates of hell would not overcome it, and so it is now, as we head towards Armageddon and the end of the human age. This book explains His prophecies, and associated key milestone calculations. This is one of many ways, witnessing that He is the genuine-unique-article, just as the Hebrew-Christian Bible says. The purpose of our existence is to have a loving relationship with Him. When humans choose to reject Him it causes us to create corrupt and false gods. Without realising it, many religious people worship corrupt gods, and atheism worships its false no-God god. These cannot bring a person into the paradise of fruitful everlasting life their ways effectively bring people into a fruitless everlasting living-death. This grieves the Messiah God of Israel because He loves fruitful life. To encourage us and to verify who He is He leaves indicators throughout history, evidencing even now, in these days of the deeply sceptical cheating spirit that humans are without excuse, come the judgement. Lawrence D. Shawbrooks is now retired but continues to work as an Elder in the Church oversight.

The Era of the Antichrist

The Era of the Antichrist is not just a book. It is a prophecy that is being fulfilled everyday, corroborated in our daily news, magazines, newspapers, etc. This is not a strange coincidence, because we live now in the Era of the Antichrist. This is why The Era of the Antichrist is not a regular book, it is a living book that is happening around us visually and invisibly, it becomes alive in your life, it reveals to you the mysteries of the self and its link to the Antichrist, secrets and mysteries that have been hidden for thousands of years and whose understanding is paramount for our souls survival. In short, it makes you aware of the forces within and without yourself that influence your life. Saint John used in his book of the Apocalypsis precise symbols and arithmetic ciphers that were Understood only by early Christian Gnostics, both numbers and symbols have been approached superficially for lack of the experiential Knowledge of God. It is only this rare gift what makes of a man a Gnostic and gives him what Saint John called - Understanding. This is why he makes sure to specify: Let those who have Understanding, compute the number of the beast, for it is the name of a man. And his number is 666. Those who have only the logic, intellectual knowledge to decipher them, have believed Saint Johns numbers to be without more meaning than the symbolic. This is a capital error - no one is able to understand correctly anything written in the Sealed book of Saint John, one of the most mysterious manuscripts ever written without the secret numerological code, especially when we deal with the Antichrist. Without the code used to unveil the mysteries, its literally impossible to discover his true identity or to know why does he have so much power over human beings. Many have made superficial conclusions about the identity of the Antichrist, some of the most popular were based on the misinterpretation of a prophecy of Nostradamus, others have been overtly based on social preferences or fears, i.e. Hitler, Gorbachev, Saddam Hussein, any of the Popes, etc. Meanwhile, the true identity of the Antichrist remained unknown and well protected behind the wall built around him by all these wild theories about his identity. As I said before, the early Christian Gnostics used specific systems of numbers and symbols to protect from malice or distortion of truth the High Mysteries of Christianity and to communicate them to each other without endangering their purity, as only those possessing the secret code could disclose them. They were forced to do this, not only to protect the purity of the Christ Mystery, but also the knowledge they had of other mysteries who concerned the adversary forces, the ones whose role is to oppose the Christ on earth. One of these mysteries, maybe the most feared of all, is the mystery of the number 666, the number of the adversary of the Christ, the satanic beast who is supposed to reign on the earth as the false Messiah; his identity, is also the most misinterpreted identity of history. Well, that is not the case anymore, The Era of the Antichrist reveals his true identity. Oddly enough - because we must be very near to the time when he is going to reveal himself - his followers are willingly corroborating the information given in this book, by acknowledging that they have been working for this end for hundreds and thousands of years and by talking openly, for the first time in history about their preparation for his coming and the great benefits that the world is going to receive by having someone like him change things on earth, etc. Our Savior in the course of His instructions to the apostles about the coming of His adversary, gave them special signs to watch for that would signal the end of times, but no date. To that I adhere myself, because if He Who Is the Beginning and the End gave only the signs, and no specific time, is because of a perfect understanding of things. So, I follow His direction, observe the signs and put the action to communicate them to others. Like it or not, most of the signs have already been fulfilled this may be pleasant or unpleasant to hear, but in these times Truth, more than ever, is a life saver being handed to you, which may help you to survive. So I exhort those who have ears to hear and who want to be part of His Kingdom to inform themselves correctly about the true identity of the adversary of the Christ; because he will deceive many, even the elect if that were possible as Our Lord Jesus Himself said. The Era of the Antichrist uses the secret numerological code used by Valentinus a disciple of Saint John to unveil the identity of the dreaded beast of the Apocalypsis. The only correct computation and conclusions that I have knowledge of, were made by Rudolph Steiner, and G.R. Mead, and both had a different aspect than the one presented in The Era of the Antichrist because the time of the Antichrist was not due yet. But now, the time is ripe and the breaking of the seals of mystery of the Apocalypse is possible. It is now also possible to offer a book like this to the general public because there are technological mediums that allow us to communicate in ways that before were not possible. Book distribution, for instance, was before controlled by big publishing houses, which would probably have stopped most books containing a subject such as this if it was accurate and true - from reaching the public. The big difference between The Era of the Antichrist and other books in which there are diverse intellectual theories given about the mystery of the Antichrist is that The Era of the Antichrist does not theorize, or uses a modern system of numerology; it computes as Saint John directed us to do. It unveils the identity of the Antichrist, not by intellectual conclusions, but by disclosing its mystery with, if not the same numerical code that Saint John used, a code one of his disciples used, and which was in use in 96 AD, the time when Saint John wrote his document. The Era of the Antichrist is a book for our era, a book of spiritual survival. The correct Understanding of this matter is vital for the souls of every living being. As vital as to know what to do when a killer hurricane is coming. If you have a hurricane preparedness pamphlet and you follow its instructions chances are that you will be able to survive the hurricane. Please use it well.
