Dutch Reformed pastor Balthasar Bekker (1634-1698) has long been recognized as a key figure in the end of the witchcraft persecutions in early modern Europe. With the publication of his monumental four-volume work The World Bewitched Bekker argued against the temporal activity of the devil and evil spirits as well as against the reality of witchcraft, sorcery, and spirit possession. Yet Bekker's ideas drew opposition from Dutch Reformed clergymen who charged that his use of Cartesian philosophy to reject the temporal activity of spirits threatened much of traditional religious faith. This book argues that it wa Bekker's exegesis of biblical passages in which spirits and spirit activity were mentioned that was a far greater threat than his Cartesian metaphysics to the literal interpretation of the Bible which was the intellectual cornerstone of Dutch reformed confessionalism, dominant in the church since the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619). With an examination of the ideas of Bekker, his opponents and supporters, this book places the controversy around The World Bewitched within the context of the Cartesian debates of the seventeenth century and the growth of confessionalism within the Dutch Reformed church.

Replacing the Fallen Angels gives a deeper understanding of God's ultimate purpose for creation and man's role in God's ultimate purpose. The book explores God's purpose from a time prior to creation as He with subtlety reveals to Isaiah, Ezekiel and then John the Apostle in the book of Revelation the real heart of a dilemma that arose in Heaven before the creation of the world. God found himself needing to replace some rebellious angels and man would be his solution. In order to select from His creation those who would qualify for His Heavenly Kingdom, God had to give man something that he did not give His created angels. He gave man the opportunity to make choices between right and wrong, good and evil. This book explores this divine purpose of God and the effects of man's use of the choices that are before him.

One of the most fascinating and strategic topics in ancient texts is the record of fallen angels, giants, and UFO's. Fallen angels and giants are shrouded in mystery and belong to the age of pyramids and other great wonders of the world. It is an epoch that was destroyed by God's judgment, a flood, which left the world everlastingly changed, the evidence of which is found in the tales, folklore, and traditions of many cultures around the world."There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown" (Genesis 6:4).This vivid language defines the conspiracy of evil which has beset our world. The ancient books, Enoch and Jubilees, tell us of a race of nephilim, which are hybrids, alive in history and today, fathered by fallen angels. Strange as this may seem, the Lord declares that this conspiracy of evil is to be repeated before His return. Consequently, it is important from the standpoint of both understanding history and understanding the future that we understand these events.The world is in a slumber, asleep with the dream of a better tomorrow. While dark forces of fallen angels are arrayed against us, many today write about the approaching juggernaut of the apocalypseand well they should! Few, however, know or understand that fallen angels have brought us to this apocalypse, this apex of human history.The end of the world as we know it is about to take place. A storm is gathering, so terrible as to cause men's hearts to fail them for fear; we must not approach this coming apocalypse unaware and unarmed.
