Historical facts from the Masonic and Templar era – (established in 1118 AD and re-established in 2013 AD), bring the symbolism of the Skull and Crossbones blended with sparse Greek and Latin meanings of the word “Mara” and “Clea”, scripture verses, the telling of the important facts such as the port of Sidon, and other markers that reveal the secret of the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail give “a critical piece of the puzzle in regards to the true meaning of the symbol itself” – readers will discover what he is speaking about as layers of the book expose motives and ancient symbols used in different religions.
In remembering the Holy Grail, one might think back to “Raiders of the Ark”, yet this book unveils truths that took place, coupled with the meaning of the “Skull” where Jesus was crucified and what the symbolism meant in regards to the Knights, the pirates and for us today, being believers. To say the least, this book is a unique travel back through time to discover many hidden symbols, secrets and treasures that bring one into a closer union with Christ, the Word of God and fellowship with Christ.
With such chapters as: The Illumination of Truth, The Crucifixion of Christ, Unlocking the Revelation of the Messiah, Unity of Father and Son, The Spirit of Truth V Error, The Antichrist V Jesus, The Serious Matter Pertaining to Your Safety, Christian Brotherhood Alliance, Addressing the New World Order, etc. this book compiles a unique array of subjects with 50 chapters in all.
“Resolution is the key objective here.” As the author explains that seeing the picture with focus and more clearly is his objective in this book; thus he paints a vivid picture using symbolism and Holy Scripture referring to the End Times offering exhortation, faith and strength for the Last Days. The trajectory of the book is to overcome bitterness by way of the cross and becoming purified in Christ.
He states, “Let us be enlightened by the truth which comes from careful analysis of the Bible, which enlightens us to perceive all things according to God.” Surely, readers will find this book amazing, although confusing at times, the author links the clues together throughout to bring perspective, conclusions and statements of facts. This book is like going on a treasure hunt, being given the pieces of the puzzle, and being brought to astonishing relations between objects, religions, tokens, Greek mythology, etc., making for a tantalizing an insightful read full of many aspects of history.
