Overview

Messiahs examines and questions the many messages and messengers from every religious tradition in an extraordinarily fresh and insightful way. Author John Hogue aims to turn your perception of messiahs upside down using a thought-provoking interface of text, prophecies, and cutting-edge illustrations. Messiahs is specifically designed as an evocative fusion of words and images to celebrate the apocalypse. Included in the many themes tackled by Hogue are:

  • The Messiahs Gallery
  • Signs of the End Times
  • The Antichrist
  • The Unbearable Lightness of Being Ordinary
  • Cults of Death
  • A New World Order
  • The Great Paradox

Characteristically weaving witticisms with frank discussions, Hogue provocatively sets out to rouse us from the religious dreamscape of our spiritual slumber.

This book provides valuable and pertinent information, and it is certainly well worth reading. However, the reader should be aware that it presents conventional and traditional ideas and interpretations about an ¿end of the world¿ and a ¿second coming of Christ¿ which are based on misinterpretation and misunderstanding of Scriptures. This was recently revealed in a book titled Real Prophecy Unveiled, by Joseph J. Adamson, which provides a very realistic and credible view of prophecy that we can celebrate. It explains how and why the myths of a 'second coming' and an 'end of the world' were created and perpetuated. It¿s about the fulfillment of prophecy and has a message designed to liberate and empower the people, and enable the humble, meek, and truly faithful to inherit the earth. The reader should also be aware of another good book, The Isaiah Effect, by Gregg Braden. It demonstrates how prophecies of global catastrophe and suffering are either symbolic or may only represent future possibilities, rather than forecast impending doom. Moreover, it establishes that we have the power to determine our future, and avoid catastrophe, which is what Adamson also emphasizes. We really need to understand that this is a time of crucial contest between the forces of falsehood and the forces of truth, and as the apostle Paul wrote, the dark forces disguise themselves as servants of the Lord. Not that Hogue is one of them, but he does help to perpetuate some of their false doctrine and dogma. And unfortunately, as Jesus predicted, ¿they shall deceive many people.¿ So you should avoid their works (and read Hogue's with this caveat), and exercise great discernment in choosing who to believe. The sooner we choose correctly, the sooner God's New Kingdom will be established on the earth, which shall last forever, never to be destroyed. That's what real prophecy foretells.
