For the large majority of Christians, the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost is the third person (hypostasis) of the Trinity: the “Triune God” manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; each person itself being God. However, I will use the scripture to not only prove that doctrine wrong, but I will explain what the Holy Ghost is, what it was given for, how to receive it, how you will know if you have it and the divine order of the church. This is an essential sermon for Christians who want to understand God and who he really is.
The book is a dramatic retelling of the fall of man – and the ultimate confrontation between good and evil. The story begins at the dawn of time in a fully realized universe populated by seraphim, cherubim, and countless angels – all with their own agendas and allegiances. However, the cherub prince Lucifer, becomes filled with vanity and wants to be renowned as the Supreme Spirit, who rules over all. Before long, Lucifer rebels against the Supreme Spirit and convinces a third of the angels to follow him. The fallen angels then begin an endless reign of evil, enticing mankind to commit every imaginable sin. The actions of the demons also give rise to giants who terrorize humans, and monstrous beasts which destroy everything in their path. In a world of growing wickedness, the archangel Michael and half of his angels are sent to earth to watch over and protect virtuous people. But the angels soon confront legions of armed demons who slaughter most of them. Only Michael and another angel escape. The demons believe they have the upper hand and decide to attack heaven. A massive battle ensues between the forces of evil and legions of angels in which the outcome conclusively determines who will rule heaven forever . . .
