These are the seven steps that each of us should have marked in our Bibles and lodged in our hearts. With each of these steps there is an affirmation God wants uis to make for Him. I hope that you will do so with me as we study this evening! And the dead in Christ will rise first. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. How did Paul minister to them? He gave them the same plan he gave any other sinner. When Paul proclaimed Christ to those deep in the dungeon of sin, he offered a recovery program. The vice grip of sin could be destroyed and the sin appetite abated. Did Paul see lasting change?
Resoundingly the Scriptures say YES! Excavating the secret of this recovery program takes us to one of the ancient provinces of Rome and the city of Thessalonica. Early this century a group of French archaeologists began to excavate the ancient ruins of a city along the coast of the Aegean Sea. Across each white marble slab deeply cut was a message that crossed the dust of centuries. Here are just two to ponder.
For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God! Her smoke rises up forever and ever! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
But after these things he must be released for a little while.
The Necropolis Railway, by Andrew Martin
Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. This is the first resurrection.
Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. I will definitely keep my eye out for more books by this author. Such was the case with this book. I got this as an e-book when it was on sale and I thought it sounded pretty interesting, and it got bonus points for being a mystery as well.
Everything was perfectly done here — the characters, the mystery, the world-building. Upon release Paul finds a purpose in this new and confusing world by researching his death and trying to track down his killer. I really enjoyed reading this book and will look forward to more from this author. I love it! It's a great genres crossover. I got hooked at "plasma tommy guns"! Multiple times during my reading of the book, I wanted to quote new favourite lines I stumbld upon.
The characters are interesting, the universe is interesting, the plot is interesting. I think I noticed a few typos o maybe, being french canadian, I just have a sucky english. The ending was satisfying but somewhat quick. Other than that, I can't recommend this book enough! Oct 12, Brittany rated it really liked it. Very interesting and unique story.. Some of the future words could've been defined better.
The story was drawn out but had several good twists along the way. The end was sad but I felt that after all that happened it was well deserved. I don't read science fiction that much but this was very good. I recommend this to anyone looking for something different and unique. This book was won from Goodreads first reads.
Dec 21, Colleen Clayton rated it it was amazing. This book has an incredible hook and the multiple perspectives lend for a twisty,'keep you on your toes' ride!
Very eloquent and well-crafted prose as well. Plus lots of dark, clever humor.
Necropolis by Michael Dempsey
Diesel-punk-sci-fi-detective-noir at its finest! A delicious genre slushie! Sep 11, Jared Stanley rated it really liked it. This was a well done book. I enjoy a good detective novel and this one fit the bill nicely. The mixture of future technology hidden inside retro objects was fairly well done but did seem to be a somewhat easy cheat for making things happen that would have been otherwise difficult.
I did enjoy the whole reverse aging system as well as possibility that well known people could be alive again, though almost none are actually featured in the book. I'd pickup the next novel from Michael Dempsey to see This was a well done book. I'd pickup the next novel from Michael Dempsey to see what he has come up with next regardless of it being a sequel or a standalone.
The book certainly leaves itself open for a followup or even series of detective novels. As I write this I do have some thoughts and questions so do not read below the "Spoilers" until you've read the book as they may influence your reading. Overall, if you're a fan of the genre I'd say pick it up and give it a read.
