Has religion been a masterful deception from the beginning? Do we, as humans, actually own anything, including our souls? Is life after death just an empty promise used to make slaves of us all? If asked, would you accept, then, forever conceal and protect from all intruders, the very thing that will destroy the world if you decline? Would you if you knew other aggressive world powers want it and will stop at nothing to get it? The Arsenal—Slaves Among us is a captivating story beginning when ten year old Sheree Anderson is torn from her mother’s arms, by her husband, and given to the Company to settle an old debt. Murder, sex, passion, and deception abound just before the Civil War, when three farm families work to get her back, at the same time dealing with their own dark secrets, political ambitions, raiders, and the underground-railroad. Sheree has inherent gifts that the Company plans to use to lure all earthly souls, to attain world dominance. Her father is covertly recruited by the federal government to track down those threatening our United States of America. But who, or what, is our enemy? Can walls have eyes and ears?

In this riveting book, authors and authorities on modern day slavery Kevin Bales and Ron Soodalter expose the disturbing phenomenon of human trafficking and slavery that exists now in the United States. In The Slave Next Door we find that slaves are all around us, hidden in plain sight: the dishwasher in the kitchen of the neighborhood restaurant, the kids on the corner selling cheap trinkets, the man sweeping the floor of the local department store. In these pages we also meet some unexpected slaveholders, such as a 27-year old middle-class Texas housewife who is currently serving a life sentence for offences including slavery. Weaving together a wealth of voices—from slaves, slaveholders, and traffickers as well as from experts, counselors, law enforcement officers, rescue and support groups, and others—this book is also a call to action, telling what we, as private citizens, can do to finally bring an end to this horrific crime.

This work is being released after being hindered for a little over 3 years. However, due to the importance, continued promptings, encouragement, consistent help and steadfastness of the Holy Spirit, we are finally able to release it to the body of Christ as led and directed by the Lord. Seeing that none of us are perfect, we have done our best to help you understand how the Lord is desiring us to gain the ability to resist dark spirit infiltrations, development and infestations against our body, soul, spirit life and relationships, which could lead to spiritual captivity, spiritual spoil, spirit domination and can even cause or produce servants of corruption without, consistent releases from dark spirit activity and intrusions of dark spirit life. Although, it may not be a perfect work (it is the Lord that perfects His work in our lives), it is a complete assignment within itself. None of us will ever be perfect outside of Christ. We have stood in the gap to complete this work for the body of Christ and those desiring to be in the Lord's camp, by the will of the Lord and by His grace we humbly release this writing, to help you stand in these last days, in obedience to the Lord and we pray to do a Volume Two to continue working towards perfecting anything we could have missed while continuing to stand, during try times and hindrances, to complete this work. It continues to be a good fight of faith all the way for the honor and glory of His name! Eze 22.30. Sam 15.22. Eph 6.13. Please remember that our independent flow charts are now available (to help preserve the body, soul and/or spirit life and situations in Christ) and can be used as a supplement to this writing to help you stand in battle in these areas and/or withstand whatever and however the enemy is trying to affect and/or operate in your life. Be encouraged, there is hope in Christ Jesus because of His complete work at Calvary. HE IS RISEN! He is Lord, in the spirit realm. He is Lord of all! Mt. 28.6. We bless you in the name of the Lord!

In the first multi-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln to be published in decades, Lincoln scholar Michael Burlingame offers a fresh look at the life of one of America’s greatest presidents. Incorporating the field notes of earlier biographers, along with decades of research in multiple manuscript archives and long-neglected newspapers, this remarkable work will both alter and reinforce current understanding of America’s sixteenth president. In volume 2, Burlingame examines Lincoln’s presidency and the trials of the Civil War. He supplies fascinating details on the crisis over Fort Sumter and the relentless office seekers who plagued Lincoln. He introduces readers to the president’s battles with hostile newspaper editors and his quarrels with incompetent field commanders. Burlingame also interprets Lincoln’s private life, discussing his marriage to Mary Todd, the untimely death of his son Willie to disease in 1862, and his recurrent anguish over the enormous human costs of the war.
