'Two Anointed Ones in the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an: Revealing the Mashiach, Messiah and UMMI' authored by Mark F. Kalita Released for Sale at kalita.com
by BWW News Desk - Jul 26, 2014

The release today of Mark Kalita's new book "Two Anointed Ones in the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an: Revealing the Mashiach, Messiah and UMMI" shows the design of prophecy and the eschatology of the three main world religions through a line of consistent communications by the army of archangels guided by Mika'el. The archangel Mika'el has been incarnated upon the earth again in this generation for the purpose of guiding the children of the people into righteousness, finally putting down the dragon of the ego in this dark aspect of war, deception and greed. "With the understanding that these books are all in a line of communications from the archangels, we can begin to see that there is no religion in the heavens only the adoration of God," states Mark in a recent interview. "Religions of men were created by men for the benefit of men. The story of the two anointed ones within the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an leave the truth of the Sevenfold Teaching as the true path to Peace and Life within the world. Without this understanding of God's truth, the world will only spiral deeper into the dark aspect of war, deception and greed unto the destruction of our race." While many 'end time' fanatics from the three world religions dwell on the dark aspects of their prophecies, the "Two Anointed Ones in the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an: Revealing the Mashiach, Messiah and UMMI" concentrates on the truths contained within the visions of the prophets when this era of war, deception and greed is cast aside for the coming era of peace, truth and altruistic loving kindness. "When the adherents to these world religions realize their leaders have been deceiving them, when money fails and when humanity tires of the war and deception, the delusional religious rhetoric of our day will pass giving way to caring, sharing and love for all as the world joins hands in the one community we truly are," Mark explains. "Unfortunately, this change will be resisted by the power players and warmongers who will hold onto their delusional standards until the very end. These children of darkness will try to make the Light into darkness and darkness into Light, continually deceiving the world into thinking that peace is impossible and war, deception and greed are the ways of the world." From within the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an, Mark opens up the religious conversation to a new understanding. Yet, this new understanding is found within the ancient texts lending credence to his theories of delusion within the accepted teachings of these three world religions. As Mark outlines, "The war, deception and greed that has gripped the world for an epoch is really about the 'One World Religion' of money. All of the religious rhetoric of our day, all of the wars, all of the subjugation and all of the suffering has roots within the lusts and desires of material. The earth is raped for these desires. We war with each other for these lusts. We are sentenced to a life of slavery to money because of our society and it's core delusions." Mark concludes his interview with one thoughtful statement, "It will not be until we set aside our delusional differences, understand we are all one community upon the earth, and come together as the family that we were meant to be that peace can be found. The core of most of the division in the world is based upon religion, religious rhetoric and how they play upon our delusional societal contructs." Mark has authored more than a dozen books on the new religious thinking of the future found within the core of the ancient texts while fixing errors that modern religious fanatics falsely claim are part of these ancient texts. His books include "New World Order of One", "End Times 5775", "One World Religion: Guide to Money & Prosperity", "My Future Mother", "Secrets of God", "7 Day Bodhi", and others. This new book, "Two Anointed Ones in the Tanakh, Bible and Qur'an: Revealing the Mashiach, Messiah and UMMI", is self-published by Mark F. Kalita through CreateSpace. It is available for sale on the author's website at KALITA.com, createspace.com/4916276 and Amazon in paperback for $11.95. It is also available on Kindle for $4.99 at amazon.com/dp/B00M123278 (more...)
