Secret Treasure of Oak Island Book Excerpt:

It started on a summer afternoon in 1795 when a young man named Daniel McGinnis found what appeared to be an old site on an island off the Acadian coast, a coastline fabled for the skullduggery of pirates. The notorious Captain Kidd was rumored to have left part of his treasure somewhere along here, and as McGinnis and two friends started to dig, they found what turned out to be an elaborately engineered shaft constructed of oak logs, nonindigenous coconut mats, and landfill that came to be known as the Money Pit. Ever since that summer day in 1795, the possibility of what might be hidden in the depths of a small island off the south coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, has made it the site of the world's longest, most expensive, and most perplexing treasure hunt. Author D'Arcy O'Connor recounts the fascinating stories and amazing discoveries of past and current treasure seekers who have sought Oak Island's fabled treasure for over two hundred years. It has baffled scientists and madmen, scholars and idiots, millionaires and get-rich-quick schemers, psychics, engineers, charlatans, and even a former president of the United States. The island has consumed the fortunes-and in some cases, the lives-of those who have obsessively set out to unlock its secret. Despite all their efforts, the mystery remains unsolved, and not a single dime of treasure has ever been recovered. The present-day search is an archaeological dig exceeding anything ever done anywhere for similar purposes, and it may well result in the discovery of one of the world's richest and most historically significant treasures. But this is also the story of individuals who have dedicated years of their lives to discover what was buried long ago beneath this strange island. They are driven by a lust for gold, by archaeological curiosity, and by their determination to outwit the engineer who was responsible for the Oak Island enigma.

Witnessing An Incredible Hidden Treasure Book Excerpt:

God’s last word in human affairs is not about the Cross, but about the Resurrection. Jesus is the resurrection and the life no man comes to the Father but by Him. He tells us to “go”. “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and low, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world”. (Matthew 28:18-20). Evangelism involves communicating the good news of salvation through relationships. It will require a strong effort on your part to witness to the lost. Christ must be highly demonstrated in love, compassion, and adoration. You must develop sensitivity to the spiritual condition of people. President Obama alluded to empathy, looking at others through your eyes, or walking in others footsteps. I encourage compassion, looking at others through the eyes of Jesus. This book will inform, empower, inspire, and instructed you in the right way. It gives examples of building spiritual relationships with believers, nonbelievers, neighbors, unknown, business associates, asking God for wisdom of their needs and understanding, and attitudes. From Genesis to Revelation God raised up inspirers, demonstrator, prophets and prophetess, those that had a godly heart to rescue the lost, and to recapture His people. He used men and women for instruments of His love. Those who would endure hardness as a good solder of Jesus Christ. God always takes the initiative to come to His people. Without Him we would all go our own way, and lack understanding. For there is a way that seems right unto men but it is the way of destruction. This book makes it clear that it is not about defeat, but all about Victory. Therefore, our responsibility as His children is to convince the world through witnessing that the best is yet to come. Luke 12:48 says, “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required, and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more”. Isaiah 11:9 says, “For the earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea”. Our hope for a non-violent world is by spreading the message of God’s love, forgiveness, and prosperity. The true knowledge of God, Jesus His Son, and why the Holy Spirit was sent is conveyed by our true witness. This is why witnessing is so incredible, and a hidden treasure. It is the Spirit working. And we know very little about the Holy Spirit and His works. It is like a wind! In according to Isaiah Chapter One; “The ox knows his owner, the ass his master’s crib, but my people do not know me, says the Lord”. This is a hard saying, but if God said it, it is true and appropriate. Now when a hard saying is given it is to convince the hearers of their status and merit with God. You can neglect or ignore many things, but not God’s word. It is a mandate for living. The Lord requires that we live justly and glorify Him as the Lord God Almighty. The above scripture was given to the children of God for a warning. It was given for conviction of sin, directions, and duty, and for consolation in trouble and danger of being lost. It was given to scare them straight. God’s word is given to build and plant, or pluck up and pull down for a change in heart. Everything that proceeds out of the mouth of God is for our benefit, because it will come to pass exactly as it was foretold, sooner or later. In this prophesy everything looks bad, very bad, with Judah and Jerusalem. The prophet Isaiah is speaking for God, he is blowing God’s triumph, reminding the people what bad shape they were in. Isaiah in speaking for God calls the people of God “stupid” senseless people. You have had plenty of time to get it right, I have feed, clothe, and kept y

Eleanor of Aquitaine seized hold of life in the 12th century in a way any modern woman would envy! 1151: As Duchess of Aquitaine, Eleanor grew up knowing what it was to be regarded for herself and not for her husband's title. Now, as wife to Louis VII and Queen of France, she has found herself unsatisfied with reflected glory-and feeling constantly under threat, even though she outranks every woman in Paris. Then, standing beside her much older husband in the course of a court ceremony, Eleanor locks eyes with a man-hardly more than a boy, really- across the throne room, and knows that her world has changed irrevocably... He is Henry D'Anjou, eldest son of the Duke of Anjou, and he is in line, somewhat tenuously, for the British throne. She meets him in secret. She has a gift for secrecy, for she is watched like a prisoner by spies even among her own women. She is determined that Louis must set her free. Employing deception and disguise, seduction and manipulation, Eleanor is determined to find her way to power-and make her mark on history.

Mysteries of Templar Treasure the Holy Grail Book Excerpt:

Next to Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, no other place on Earth holds as much esoteric symbolism as France's Rennes le Ch'teau. Its location and design are the subjects of countless rumors, myths, and legends. Mysteries of Templar Treasure and the Holy Grail, formerly published as The Secrets of Rennes le Chateau, delves into the reality behind the action and adventure of The Da Vinci Code. Rennes le Chateau has plenty of secrets: buried treasure, unsolved murders, supernatural powers, codes on parchments and tombstones, not to mention clues concealed in statues and paintings, enigmatic priests who controlled immense wealth, and secret societies that are still active today. The authors survey the arcane history and secrets of Rennes le Chateau, including its relationship to the Merovingian bloodline of Christ. The Chateau is a possible location of an immense treasure, such as a Templar, Cathar, or Priory of Sion hoard. The final resting place of a famous artifact like the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Longinus, the Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus- or even the Holy Grail. The authors also examine Rennes le Chateau's proximity to Cathar and Templar fortresses, its mystical layout, and its location on the same Paris meridian as so many other esoteric mysteries. Extensive appendices in the book offer possible solutions to secret cryptograms, point out odd connections and commonalities between Rennes le Chateau and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, and suggest the possibility of fourth-dimension/tesseract implications.

Treasure River Book Excerpt:

The Red River story has remained a best kept secret, largely in part due to President Jefferson's embarrassment over the 1806 Freeman-Custis Expedition's failure at the hands of the Spanish; brought about by the, "Aaron Burr/Wilkinson conspiracy." Every river has a story that can only be told by someone that knows her history and her heart. Red River was always "Treasure River." She just needed Wildwood Dean to tell her story. Allen Rich, North Texas e-News. Treasure River, by Wildwood Dean, meanders along the Red River of the early 19th century with tales of trappers, whiskey dealers and treasure hunters. Yellow Beard, reared by his Wichita Indian mother, has not given up the dream of finding his treasure-hunting father. Jac Colter seeks to make his fortune, in part as recompense for an act of treachery against his father. Smuggling prohibited whiskey to the trappers proves a risky if profitable proposition. Want to know how to make frontier whiskey? Here you'll find the recipe, right down to the rattlesnake heads. In this saga the author lovingly chronicles the imperfect individuals who sought their destinies wherever the streams could take them. Lydia Hawke, author of Firetrail and Perfect Disguise It is astounding that a short 200 years ago, it was more profitable to lose your identity than to steal some one else's; that, the best way to travel from New Orleans to St. Louis was via a steam-driven, wood-eating river boat! In the early 1800's the number one cash crop of the United States was the skin of a beaver. In all probability the second largest cash crop was whisky, until Congress passed a bill in 1832 excluding spirituous liquors from the Indian country. Read and listen: Turmoil, anguish, struggle, faith, patience, harmony and romance make up the emotional maze found in Treasure River! They have been hidden underneath the quite waters of Red River.
