In Heaven Right Now: Prophet Chronicles, Melvin Abercrombie shares the truth about vampires and explores the contention that 90 percent of religions are wrong about what they teach their followers concerning what happens when they die. Abercrombie, a former Christian minister and founder of Broken Wing Ministry, has completed the initiation of the real vampire through Temple of the Vampire in California. In his third book, he presents an inquisitive examination of religion and vampires while sharing the realities of what it is like to have an immortal soul. Abercrombie dispels common myths and brings a new perspective as he teaches others that vampires are not afraid of the cross or the sun, that they do not drink blood, and that they do not transform into bats or wolves. Instead, vampires live in the temporary mortal flesh to feed, drink, and enjoy their five senses and live to teach the truth about reincarnation. We really are all in Heaven Right Now, and this informative exploration encourages you to shake off previously learned perceptions about death and accept the real truth.
Firmly rooted in the reality of pain and suffering in his own life, a provocative new voice offers a catalyst to awakening one's five spiritual senses to experience heaven as a present reality here on Earth and not just a final destination. Simultaneous.

The Final Chapter From Billy Graham While his earthly vision dims, the glory of heaven is illuminated as Billy Graham, the beloved evangelist, shares from his past, and his present, the reality of eternity. Although Billy Graham may no longer preach from the stadiums of the world, in this book you will sense his heart still beats strong with the resounding assurance that he will spend eternity with Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. In Where I Am, Mr. Graham invites and strongly encourages all of us to contemplate our eternal hope. When asked, “Where is Heaven?” Mr. Graham has wisely replied, “Heaven is where Jesus Christ is, and I’m going to Him soon.” The greatest promise ever given to the human race came from the lips of our Redeemer when Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me...I go to prepare a place for you...I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1–3). Just after his ninety-fifth birthday, Mr. Graham proclaimed with resolve, “When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ—that’s where I am.” Flap Copy: As our nation and world travail in the midst of political, economic, and cultural uncertainties, we can find comfort in the hope that comes from the unchanging truth of God’s Word. Whether talking with a US president, a world leader, or the common man or being interviewed on network television, Billy Graham has always begun his answers with “The Bible says…” In Where I Am, Mr. Graham shares what the Bible has to say about eternity from all of its sixty-six books; messages of truth, warning, love, and the certainty of the future, all gleaned by a man who would like to be remembered solely as a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each short chapter examines the reality that each of us chooses where to spend life after death: Heaven or Hell. From the Old Testament writer who composed “Show me Your ways, O Lord” (Psalm 25:4) to the New Testament writer who penned the words of Jesus, “Whoever believes in [Me] should not perish” (John 3:16), there is hope for anyone who puts his or her faith and trust in the One who gives us the promise, “Where I am, there you may be also” (14:3).
If life is about the journey and not the destination, could it be that this is heaven —this physical life we are living here on Earth? What we experience in our daily lives often feels like anything but heaven. But what if we understood how powerful we are —that we are powerful enough to mold both our internal and our external reality? Anita Moorjani, the New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me, is convinced we can do exactly that. The process, she explains, requires dismantling many cultural myths mistaken for indisputable truths. Beliefs such as "We get what we deserve," "Loving ourselves is selfish," and "Coincidences are just that —coincidences," are ingrained within us from birth, pervasive and influential, leading to generations of misguidance. Following her near-death experience, Moorjani began to embody truths she learned in the other realm, discovering that letting go of these outmoded myths allowed her to experience heaven not as a physical place but as a state of mind, right here and right now. In this examination of our common myths, she shares stories and examples from her own life, revealing the lies beneath the surface of what she was taught and absorbed. By freeing ourselves from these falsehoods, Moorjani asserts, we can leave fear, heartache, and self-imposed boundaries behind and instead live lives full of purpose and joy.

On April 28, 2006, as he lay in his hospital bed in Ann Arbor, Michigan, visions of celestial beauty were the last thing on Marv Besteman's mind. He had just had surgery to remove a rare pancreatic tumor. It was after visiting hours and his family had left for the day. Alone and racked with pain, Marv tossed and turned, wanting more than anything else to simply sleep and escape the misery and discomfort for a while. The retired banker, father, and grandfather had no idea he was about to get a short reprieve in the form of an experience he never could have imagined. In My Journey to Heaven, Marv Bestman shares the story of his experience of heaven with astounding detail. Readers will hear of his encounters with angels who accompanied him to the gate, his conversation (argument, really) with St. Peter, and his recognition of friends and family members who touched his life. His story offers peace, comfort, and encouragement to those who have lost loved ones and gives security and solace to those who are grieving, dying, or wonder about the afterlife. Marv believed God sent him back to earth to fulfill this mission of comfort and reminds readers that God has work for each of us to do before he calls us to be with him in heaven. Secure in his belief that his book was the fulfillment of his own mission, Marv returned to heaven in January 2012.

In July of 2016, Jesus spoke to Gwendolyn in a vision, saying, I have placed some books inside of you. You will need to vomit them up. In another vision, Jesus gave crystal-clear cylinder glasses of water to Gwendolyn and her daughter and gave them the urgent command, Quick! We need to get these to everyone in order for them to be caught up in the rapture! In The Joys of Heaven, a two-part series, Gwendolyn poured out these books proclaiming the power of the cross and of Jesus great love, which heals and transforms lives. In Part 1: Faith For Change In America, the first of these very powerful and inspirational books, she appeals to the unsaved to make Jesus their Lord while empowering the believer to move forward by faith. She also discusses several revelations of staggering events to come that will affect the immediate future of mankind. In Part II: A Closer Walk with God, Gwendolyn challenges believers to step up to a higher standard of holiness, to experience a deeper fellowship with Jesus, to take back the power that belongs to the church, and to march onward and upward to victory. She charges them to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and to once again experience the power of God to do the miraculous among us.
