Book No Longer Zombies But Complete in Christ Volume 2

Download or read No Longer Zombies But Complete in Christ Volume 2 PDF, written by Rika Geldenhuys and published by Holy Fire Publishing. This book was released on 2019-07-17 with total page 354 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book discusses how the sound waves and lyrics of music, such as Rock 'n' Roll and Trance , have an influence on a person's body, soul and spirit. A person's eyes and ears bring messages of the outside world inside a person. These messages go directly to the brain. These messages can either be positive or negative messages. The frontal lobe of the brain is where reasoning takes place. The frontal lobe is the place where a person's thought processes start. Thoughts will therefore also be either positive, or negative - depending on the messages received. Good thoughts (positive) and bad thoughts (negative) are then stored together in a person's memory basis. These thoughts form a belief system about oneself, God and the world. One's belief system can be formed by the messages received from parents, peer groups, role models, the lyrics in music, the social media, etc. The memory basis is linked to the hypothalamus (emotional centre). A person will "feel" his thoughts: Think positive, feel positive and think negative, feel negative. Good thoughts will produce good feelings and bad thoughts will produce bad feelings. The hypothalamus sends the messages to the pituitary gland which produces chemicals and the nerves "feed" the whole body. Good thoughts produce good feelings and the "happy" hormone, serotonin, is provoked. Bad, evil, or negative thoughts produce bad, evil or negative feelings and endorphins like adrenalin will be provoked. Endorphins are highly addictive, therefore one can get addicted to the stimuli which activated these hormones. One can get addicted to the music, which activated serotonin, or adrenalin. The sound waves of heavy music, such as Heavy metal and Death metal, have sharp points and aggrevate feelings of frustration and anger and adrenalin is activated. Smooth music's sound waves have round curves and make people experience feelings of peace and happiness and serotonin is activated. When the eyes and ears of a person receive God's Word, God plants his "flowers" in the memory basis, but when the eyes and ears receive evil messages, Satan plants his "weeds." God's good Word will form a positive belief system and Satan's bad, evil and negative messages, will form a negative belief system. One perceives the outside world from inside. Negative thoughts can cause nihilism - feelings of worthlessness. Stress caused by negative messages, can cause illnesses like ulcers, high blood pressure, migrains, etc. God's good words can, therefore, heal a person.

Book excerpt: Thanks to his close relationship to Lady Cicely Redesdale, the mistress of the house, to whom he had always been more of younger brother than cousin, he had carte blanche to be at the Castle whenever he chose, and to treat the house as if it were in reality, what he assuredly made of it—his actual home. Both to him—and to Cicely's other cousin, Rupert Mernside—the late John Redesdale, her husband, had extended the fullest and most warm hospitality; and since his death, it had still remained a recognised thing that the two cousins should spend their weekends at Bramwell, whenever Lady Cicely and her little daughter were there. The kindly millionaire who had married the lovely but impecunious Cicely Staynes, one of the numerous daughters of the Earl of Netherhall, possessed a host of hospitable instincts, and the Castle had opened its gates wide to Cicely's relations and friends. Only one reservation had been made by honest John Redesdale. No man or woman of doubtful reputation, or damaged character, was allowed to be the guest of his wife; and the shadier members of Society never set foot within any house of which the millionaire was master. Jack Layton, strolling idly now across the smoking-room, whose paneled walls and carved furniture had been Redesdale's pride and joy, glanced up at the mantelpiece, over which hung a portrait of the dead man.

Book excerpt: A memoir of one man’s journey into, and out of, the movement that foreshadowed the modern-day “Antifa.” Between 1999-2005, as the nation convulsed with uncertainty over a contested election and the Sept. 11 attacks, A.J. Lozier attended and helped organize protests across the United States, as an active participant in the anarchist "black bloc," predecessor to the modern-day "Antifa." He was charged, tackled, swung at, shot at with rubber bullets, punched and, once, arrested. He did his fair of shoving too, all in the name of Anarchy, which he believed to be the only hope for a more peaceful and equitable society, in which capitalism was a thing of the past. This is no "behind the mask" exposé, but nor is it a work of unselfconscious propaganda. It is first and foremost a story, but one that charts how a pure-intentioned desire for peace and justice morphed into a mechanism for justifying any behavior. It is a story that foreshadows the Antifa we see today.

And falling in love with the beautiful Brittainy Papillon was not part of his plan.

That is, until the bold, handsome warrior, Alric Thomas, abruptly entered her peaceful world and disrupted her guarded heart the way no man has dared. Brittainy and Alric are quickly thrown into an epic battle between two powerful adversaries, which will not only put their courage to the test, but their love, as well.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When Farchar MacNab goes on a blinder of a drinking session at Hogmanay he stays away for three days. The temperature drops to minus 22, and he returns to his remote unheated cottage in the thaw to find that his partner and newborn baby have frozen to death. Fach retreats to Glasgow, where he tries to hide from the world by living in a derelict Victorian railway station below the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow's West End - "a black airless hole with pigeons for neighbours and a park full of beauty on the roof of his world". Scared of the light, Fach leaves his tunnel only at night for the safety of The Coffin - Glasgow's first 'death theme' pub - and The Gravy Star, the cafe where people don't stare too much. Slightly mad, he raves to himself, and tries to overcome his past. Obsessed with his Baden Powell-influenced upbringing at the hands of his Uncle Duncan, Fach dreams of leaving the tunnel for the Strath, place of his birth, in the Highlands. When he does, he strides out through post-industrial Glasgow, reflecting on his own family history, a hysterically funny trip to Berlin, and the toll Maggie Thatcher took on Scotland over 11 years. His return to his home village brings a dramatic reckoning. His return to the tunnel brings a positive turn-around that makes him approach the 21st century with new hope.
