A story of an ancient community of saints who crossed the bridge of death twice
The account you are about to read, is a story of the great providences of God. Providence is an interesting word. According to the Oxford University Dictionary, it means The protective care of God. This is a story that concerns aspects of God's divine resources and of His protective care. Remember, God's resources are limitless, so anything is possible!
The Scriptures tell us that there were certain saints who were resurrected from their graves, following the crucifixion of Christ. Is this strange or what? To say the least, this is a very unique and unusual event! There is nothing else like it, anywhere in the Scriptures. No specific explanations are given. The Bible says MANY came forth from their graves and were recognized by their friends when they returned to Jerusalem. What could be the reason many saints were brought forth from their graves? What could be the role and purpose of these special RESURRECTED ONES, in the Kingdom of God? After all, they have been amongst us now for over 2,000 years! There must be a reason why they are here. I have thought about this for some time now. Here is what I have concluded. First, I believe their role has been that of witnesses. Ye shall be My witnesses. Second, I believe their role has been to provide providential care.
Hopefully, this narrative will expand your concepts of the greatness of the divine resources that our gracious Creator uses, to bring about His plans and purposes in this man-made world of chaos and confusion. To say the least, I think your imagination will be challenged as you read the adventures of The Resurrected Ones!
HeidiMarie1 Stars Out Of 5Do not recommendFebruary 9, 2016HeidiMarieQuality: 5Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I received a copy of The Resurrected Ones by Richard K. Thomas from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
This book is about those resurrected at the same time as Christ's resurrection to do God's work. Each chapter of the book told a story of one of the three main characters aiding a Believer. The stories in the book take place all the way from Christ's time to present day. Though based on real events, this book is fiction.
I finished this book a few minutes ago, and to be honest I am very happy to be done with it. I did not enjoy this book very much, and I only gave it 1/5 stars on Goodreads. The stories bored me quite a bit, and I really didn't have any attachment to any of the characters. The writing style was hard to get past. All of the sentences were short and choppy, and the author hardly used any pronouns and just repeated names over and over again, which got really annoying. I felt like I was reading something that a child had written. Also, this may be just because I read the ebook version, but the book was filled with typos. It seemed like the author was trying to write both a novel and a study, but he missed on both. Finally, the stories that Thomas created were just so far fetched and unbelievable (as well as fictional) that they just really put me off. The author says he wrote this book to teach his children about God's providence, but if that's the case then he should have just shared stories of real things that God has done.
I gave this book 1/5 stars, and it is not a book that I would recommend to someone else. As the entirety of this book is fictional stories and speculation, I do not believe that it conveys Biblical truth, though I am not well educated on this subject.
