The Chronicles, divided into two books purely for convenience, have long suffered from neglect; this is partly because much of their content can be found elsewhere in the Old Testament and partly because their presentation, emphasizing genealogies and ritual ceremonies, has lacked appeal for modern man over the last few hundred years. Yet these books, with their theological interpretation of historical events, are a valuable source of illumination about the Judaean community living under Persian rule about 350 B.C. and its special relationship with Jerusalem and its temple and with God. In his introductory section, Mr Cog ,ins discusses the probable origins and the nature and purpose of 'the Chronicler's' work (whether that of a single writer or a group) and then examines each book separately. In the established style of the series the N.E.B. translation of the text then follows, divided into brief sections and alternating with passages of commentary. The results of recent Old Testament scholarship and modern theological thought are conveyed in simple language to the student and layman.

On October 8th, 2017 at about 10:30 pm, the winds outside my home were moving the large Redwood Trees back and forth, though no storm, or wind had been predicted. I went outside and saw several flashes of blue light pulse in the vortex winds forming above me.At 4:30 am, my neighbor was pounding on my door telling me that emergency evacuations were being conducted due to several fires on the ridges. Going outside I could see only orange skies to the North and East, but no flames and no trees ablaze.Thus began my journey into discovering and uncovering how and why 157 "abnormal" fires began in 9 different counties in Northern California. I toured some of the over 4,000 homes were destroyed to ash while trees adjacent were left untouched. I saw 3,000 pound cars flipped on their roofs. I saw a 100,000 sq. foot Kmart building, where the fire had to jump the six lane 101 freeway, cross a large parking lot and completely torch the inside, while the outside remained untouched.Thus began my journey into learning about what former Governor of California has deemed "The New Abnormal" for fires to occur in California over "The next 10, 15, 20 years time". Never before have firemen seen such fire activity and they have no context for understand the advanced weaponry used on not only these fires, but fires that have been set ablaze in over 15 separate areas of California over the past 1 1/2 years.The deadliest of all California fires was the Camp Fire that occurred in Butte County on November 8th, 2018. This fire began with an explosion, again no weather related forecast, where winds were said to travel at "80 football fields per minute" which means these fires traveled at a never before speed of 273 mile per hour.52,000 people were said to have safely evacuated Paradise, yet residents who were lucky to escape the fires, claim this is nowhere close to being true and many perished while fire departments stood down and military police locked down all of Paradise for a month, before allowing the victims that remained, to return to see if their homes still stood.There was no warning from public service officials. There were no winds the morning of the fire igntion, which has said to have been caused by 1) power poles falling, 2) bullet holes in transformers and recently, "fire igniting embers" that somehow entered into homes and turned them to ash.To a person I have interviewed said they received no help from any charitable organizations that has taken in millions of dollars donated to help the victims. They fled with the shirt on their backs, yet, just like in Santa Rosa after our fires, many become homeless or are sleeping in their cars with no one to turn to.This book is a result of some of my 80 You Tube videos I published while investigating the Paradise fires, as well as directly experiencing the 170 CA fires in October 2017. I also cover in this book the likely weaponry used to start the fires, the agenda behind the fires, and those who were directly benefit aka disaster capitalists. You can find my work also on You Tube at "Aplanetruth3", "WellHealed2" and websites; Tabublog.com, Avvi.info, Aplanetruth.info and Wellhealed.life. This book details like no other before, the new abnormal and the takeover of California's precious resources.
