The Awakening Library… and Two New Books You Didn’t Know I Wrote

The Awakening Library… and Two New Books You Didn’t Know I Wrote

Announcements
Back in 2017 when Minister Fortson.com went down due to an SQL Injection attack I lost a ton of work. After that I decided to start archiving my work on Amazon by turning the info on The Awakening Network into Kindle books. If you're looking for something new to read on Kindle or the Kindle app check out the new Awakening Library. Click Here To Visit The Awakening Library Forbidden Secrets of The Watchers I love writing fiction and so I decided to dabble in short stories and novellas. Silent Screamers was the first set of novellas. My new project is a series of short stories written from the point of view of a Watcher... one of the ranks of angels that fell during the days of Noah. Heads Up: The next two installments in the series will be based around Heaven and Hell... and Hell ...
Does Race Matter When It Comes To The Bible?

Does Race Matter When It Comes To The Bible?

The Awakening
Race, religion, and politics are some of the most volatile and divisive subjects on the planet... and we're about to mix them all together in one study. The Bible isn't about making people comfortable or allowing them to escape personal responsibility of their choices. Christ came to be divisive, which is something that more churches need to teach. "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother ...
Jezebel and 32 Signs of The Jezebel Spirit

Jezebel and 32 Signs of The Jezebel Spirit

The Hamites, Women In Scripture
The traditional Christian crowd sometimes make reference to "the Jezebel spirit", but what is it and why? The name Jezebel is mentioned 22 times in scripture (21 in the OT and 1 in the NT), but the teaching of "the Jezebel spirit" is based on the 1 mention in the New Testament. If you believe in the Jezebel spirit or know someone that does, you're going to want to read this entire study. If you find something worth sharing, please do so. Jezebel In The Old Testament The story of old Testament Jezebel can be found across 1 Kings and 2 Kings. When Ahab began to reign, he took a wife named Jezebel (1 Kings 16:31), the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians. A quick summary of Jezebel's lineage breaks down as follows: Zidon and Sidon are interchangeable. Sidon / ...
Why Does The World Fear Black People?

Why Does The World Fear Black People?

The Awakening
Have you ever wondered why every time a white person shoots an unarmed black person, we hear the same explanation, "I feared for my life." Most of us, including myself, have called complete BS on this excuse... but what if we were wrong? Not too long ago, while researching a completely unrelated subject, I stumbled across the following verse that shed some light on the current situation: "This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee." - Deuteronomy 2:25 It didn't stop here. There are several other verses that confirm this as well. The Book of Deuteronomy "There shall no man be able to stand before you: for t...
Mary Magdalene: The Woman Possessed By Seven Devils

Mary Magdalene: The Woman Possessed By Seven Devils

Women In Scripture
Who Was Mary Magdalene? Even though her popularity suggests otherwise, she is only mentioned in 12 verses in the Bible. Many of us think we know who she is and what her role was, but how much of it is based on scripture and how much is based on the Gnostic texts? It may surprise you to learn that many of the church teachings about Mary Magdalene come from outside of the Bible and have made their way into church doctrine as if it appeared in the Bible. The Exorcism of Mary Magdalene There are several times in the gospels when Jesus performs exorcisms on unnamed groups of people. It is possible that he met Mary Magdalene during one of these exorcisms. "Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cas...
Hagar: Abraham’s Egyptian Wife and The Mother of Ishmael

Hagar: Abraham’s Egyptian Wife and The Mother of Ishmael

The Hamites, Women In Scripture
Hagar was Abraham's black Egyptian concubine that overcame her status as a servant to become the mother to  of the largest nations to ever exist. When Sarah failed to get pregnant, as God promised her she would, she decided to take things into her own hands, and give her Egyptian handmaid Hagar to Abraham, so that he could get her pregnant. "And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes." - Genesis 16:3-4 The Birth of Ishmael It was this union that led to the birth of their half Egyptian son Ishmael, the father of the Ishmaelites. A
Aaron: The Older Brother of Moses and The First High Priest of Israel

Aaron: The Older Brother of Moses and The First High Priest of Israel

The Shemites
The story of Aaron's journey from slave to voice of God and the first high priest of Israel is probably one of the strangest series of events in the Bible. When scripture introduces an important person, there is usually some kind of back story. While there are a few exceptions to these brief back stories, Aaron is the one that stands out the most. When Was Aaron Born? Aaron, Miriam, and Moses were the children of Amram and Jochebed. When Aaron age is first mentioned in scripture, we're told that he was 83 years old. "And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh." - Exodus 7:7 Aaron being three years older than Moses means that he was born three years prior to or just as the Hebrews being put under bondage...
