Most of us have fumbled through this life in search of that elusive path of destiny, but few will ever find it because it is shrouded in a mystery so well hidden that only God knows how to find it. Psychics and soothsayers will never find it. Astrologers will never find, nor horoscopes predict the secrets that belong to God. It so pleased God that he has hidden these things from the wise and prudent of this world. These secret things belong to God, for this is "The kingdom within us. The treasure in earthen vessels." Human eyes have now seen it, nor have our ears heard it, nor has it entered into the hearts of men the things that God has for those who love him. Only the Holy Spirit can reveal this treasure. In this book we explore this elusive treasure and God's message for all mankind. We return to God original plan for mankind. We were to reign in this life as kings and priests onto our God. We were to experience days of heaven upon the earth. Although some would say it is an impossible treasure to obtain, we will learn that with God nothing is impossible. The Spirit of God (prophecy) said he is about to "Raise a nation in the earth; a nation of those who are obedient to God. Power and glory shall be unto all who obey for it is the Glory of God Manifest in Men." "The Restoration of An Ancient Kingdom Dynasty." Those who would find their treasure in this season will become part of this great dynasty of wealth and power in the earth. This dynasty began with Adam and Eve at creation. Although this kingdom has been lost for generation, God promised a season in which it would return to the earth. That season begins now. Join us as we take a journey to find that true treasure of this life. It is the glory of the Kingdom of God. It is a return to the Garden of Eden.
