✏Counterfeit Gods Book Summary : New York Times bestselling author of the forthcoming God's Wisdom for Navigating Life and nationally renowned minister Timothy Keller exposes the error of making good things "ultimate" in this book, and shows readers a new path toward a hope that lasts. Success, true love, and the life you've always wanted. Many of us placed our faith in these things, believing they held the key to happiness, but with a sneaking suspicion they might not deliver. No wonder we feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful. There is only one God who can wholly satisfy our cravings—and now is the perfect time to meet Him again, or for the first time. In Counterfeit Gods, Timothy Keller shows how a proper understanding of the Bible reveals the unvarnished truth about societal ideals and our own hearts. This powerful message cements Keller's reputation as a critical thinker and pastor, and comes at a crucial time—for both the faithful and the skeptical.

✏Counterfeit Gods Book Summary : This is probably a cancer that can affect the whole of Christian faith. Is the God who has arrived the real Jesus Christ & is He the God of Israel? When I first met God, He didn''t reveal Himself to me, but He let Satan put frog demons in me as a counterfeit god. It took me years to figure out that the gods inside me wasn''t the Holy Spirit but demons. I went through a lot of troubles having these demons inside me. Now why did God allow Satan to put frogs inside me when I really trusted it was the God of Israel? Well in the days of Isaiah God said that this would happen to me in the yr 2000AD+/-. It''s written in Isaiah 14:31. God tells the Church or Palestina that she''s dissolved due to a religious counterfeit or smoke from the "north" which means religious for religion comes from the North in God''s terminology. So a religious "smoke" from Satan was unleashed on the Messenger of Isaiah- this author- but I was able to discover it was Satan due to my marriage date- or appointed time. A Viking girl''s Love got in the way of Satan & I was able to discover that I was being duped by frog demons & Satan. So the church or Palestina was saved. Isaiah 14:31" Howl, O gate, cry, O city: thou whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, & none shall be alone in his appointed times." Marriage date. Why did God do this, dupe me into believing in counterfeit gods? It is because He does not want the Church just to believe blindly that the God who has arrived is really the true God. Satan has spent a lot of time confusing the Church saying that the antichrist shall come first, then a seven year tribulation, then Jesus will return riding on a white horse & destroying the antichrist army in Megiddo. Satan knew that Jesus would come first & in peace & that WWIII is billions of years after the S. Coming. So when Jesus arrived in peace we would think He is the antichrist & we would not worship Him. & how do you know it is the real Jesus Christ? So God let me the Messenger of Isaiah who is the Herald of Jesus confront the onslaught of Satan head on. This is why He let me get duped, so I could discover Satan''s plan & when the Church saw what happened to me they would know the truth. I discovered Satans plan or the briers & thorns that Satan put up to stop the Lord- books like - the Left behind series - & rapture doctrine. To prove that I am correct, has the rapture happened? No, & it wont happen & that should signal to the Church that their whole endtime doctrine & vision is wrong .The Lord says Isaiah 28:18" & your covenant with death "rapture doctrine" shall be disannulled, & your agreement with hell " rapture, tribulation, WWIII etc doctrine" shall not stand: when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it" meaning when the purge of the 1/3 of the human race is killed, your doctrine that you are raptured out of here & wont feel the pain will fall apart. The Church is not raptured out of here. My ordeal of facing demons & Satan''s deception head on with counterfeit gods proves that the real God of Israel has arrived, Just look what happened to me. Just like St. Job, my life is a lesson for the Church not to jump in blindly, like they did in 40 billion AD after the 1000 years when the antichrist will bring fire from heaven to earth. Did I bring fire from heaven to earth? Did the Rapture happen? I was able to convince the Church about Satan''s attempt to smear the real Jesus Christ & the Church saw what my life was all about & its lesson, so the Lord said. Isaiah 14:32" What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation''? That the Lord hath founded Zion, & the poor of His people shall trust in it." God also said, Isaiah 18:3" All ye inhabitants of the world, & dwellers on the earth, see ye when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains, & when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye." So God says listen to my gospel when it goes over the nations as Rev 8:10. Rev 12:14, Isaiah 25:6, Joel 2:24

✏Counterfeit Gods Book Summary : Counterfeit Gods Foreword Novellas have many ways of being born. This one found its genesis when, after reading my book Malignant Pied Pipers of Our Time, my office janitor asked me, "Hey, Doc. If you treated Reverend Jim Jones when he was twelve-years old, could 918 deaths at Jonestown have been prevented?" "Maybe," I replied. This novella is partly a memoir about my love of my work. The story is about the possibilities and profound difficulties in changing destinies. Unlike many melodramatic TV or Hollywood movie scenarios, such changes occurring in psychotherapy are deceptively quiet...often muted. Psychotherapy involves many emotional experiences...anxiety, fear, fascination, wonder, boredom, humor/laughter, anger, sadness and often psychological pain. However, the more severe and ominous forms of pain, destruction and even prevented deaths, go unheralded. TheyOlsson-Counterfeit Godsare unnoticed because existentially, they like a suicide prevented, never in fact exist. Any genuine change in psychotherapy is always a story about two or more lives. The format I chose for this book is to alternate one chapter of Will's story (the Novel), with a subsequent chapter of psychiatric observations and knowledge about the destructive cult leader the Rev. Jim Jones. I am grateful for my friend and colleague Stuart Yudofsky MD's excellent suggestion about this format. It was sometimes used by one of my favorite authors, Allen Wheelis MD. I hope that my character Will and his treatment ...and even the story of the horrible aspects of Rev Jim Jones's troubled life, can help thwart the evil of destructive cults. So, be wary of all gurus and would-be emperors in new clothes!CONTENTSChapter 1 A BOY NAMED WILLIAM I. POWERSCHAPTER II...

✏Walking with God through Pain and Suffering Book Summary : New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller—whose books have sold millions of copies to both religious and secular readers—explores one of the most difficult questions we must answer in our lives: Why is there pain and suffering? Walking with God through Pain and Suffering is the definitive Christian book on why bad things happen and how we should respond to them. The question of why there is pain and suffering in the world has confounded every generation; yet there has not been a major book from a Christian perspective exploring why they exist for many years. The two classics in this area are When Bad Things Happen to Good People by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner, which was published more than thirty years ago, and C. S. Lewis’s The Problem of Pain, published more than seventy years ago. The great secular book on the subject, Elisabeth Ku¨bler-Ross’s On Death and Dying, was first published in 1969. It’s time for a new understanding and perspective, and who better to tackle this complex subject than Timothy Keller? As the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, Timothy Keller is known for the unique insights he shares, and his series of books has guided countless readers in their spiritual journeys. Walking with God through Pain and Suffering will bring a much-needed, fresh viewpoint on this important issue.

The book of Revelation is the most prominent book in the Bible when it comes to revealing the events of the end times. Revelation has been misunderstood by ministers and laymen alike since its canonization in the Bible. It has been interpreted in so many ways that it is confusing to the average Bible student, therefore, many today make very little or no attempt to understand its truths. This book, however, uses a different method of interpreting the Revelation. It uses the 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament in the Bible to interpret the book of Revelation -- Scripture interpreting Scripture. You see, God has hidden the symbols and mysteries of Revelation within the Bible itself. When we make this amazing discovery we will have more]Understanding Revelation, the title of this book.

The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers—he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever.

✏1 2 and 3 John Book Summary : Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered in one volume. Written by notable evangelical scholars, each volume treats the literary context and structure of the passage in the original Greek, and each author provides an original translation based on the literary structure. The series consistently provides the main point, an exegetical outline, verse-by-verse commentary, and theology in application in each section of every commentary. Critical scholarship informs each step but does not dominate the commentary, allowing readers to concentrate on the biblical author’s message as it unfolds. While primarily designed for those with a basic knowledge of biblical Greek, all who strive to understand and teach the New Testament will find these books beneficial. The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series covers the entire New Testament in twenty volumes; Clinton E. Arnold serves as general editor. 1-3 John In her commentary on John’s letters, Karen H. Jobes writes to bridge the distance between academic biblical studies and pastors, students, and laypeople who are looking for an in-depth treatment of the issues raised by these New Testament books. She approaches the three letters of John as part of the corpus that includes John’s gospel, while rejecting an elaborate redactional history of that gospel that implicates the letters. Jobes treats three major themes of the letters under the larger rubric of who has the authority to interpret the true significance of Jesus, an issue that is pressing in our religiously pluralistic society today with its many voices claiming truth about God.
