EAST END, Tortola, VI- “The entire place was lit up, and there He was, glowing brightly- Christ.”

This was part of a vision pastor and author Christine Thomas said she had when she was 16 years of age and which is the inspiration behind her first publication- The Glorious Appearing.

The book, she told Virgin Islands News Online at her quiet home in East End, speaks about how the believer is supposed to live. “How we are supposed to get ready for the coming kingdom of Christ, because in many of the churches you don’t hear these kinds of preaching. This book will teach you how you should get ready, how you should live and how you should see God in praise and worship.”

Thomas said she started working on the book on January 1, 2015 and by May-June was finished. “Because I sat down to write the book and the Holy Spirit was just downloading. I also had other information written down from previous visions and dreams.”

She said she has received many visions and dreams concerning the glorious appearing of Christ. In fact she said she has received so many prophetic words that some churches have rejected her for sharing them.

The woman of the cloth said she is a pastor of a church in the United States but she has been ministering on the island also. “I have gone to a lot of people, and I have given them prophetic words that the Lord has spoken to me.”

Book is for the ‘saved & unsaved’

The book is another avenue for Thomas to reach out to both the “saved and unsaved” regarding the prophetic Second Coming.

“It is important at this time because we are living in the end, end, end of time. In Matthew 24 Jesus spoke about the end times. He told us that we should watch and pray.”

She noted too that many of the end time signs such as wars and rumours of wars, natural disasters and even false prophets in the churches are manifesting. “This book is an eye opener to the body of Christ because as a believer are we really watching?”

Thomas recalled that she was just 8 years of age when she was “called” and Christ appeared to her when she was 16 years of age. “All my life I went through knowing that I had to do something for Christ. I went about doing my own business but later in my life, in my 40s, I re-dedicated myself to him and I have been very serious and committed to him.”

The Virgin Islander also took the opportunity to share her testimony in the book, which she said is a very powerful testimony that God is always there despite the struggles. “So in this book I gave full details of my struggles, with my house, losing all my businesses, and how God intervened.”

The Glorious Appearing is available for sale online, including on Xlibris.com, Googlebooks, Amazon.com, her own website www.thegloriousappearing.com, and persons can also contact her personally for their copies. The hard cover is $29.99 and soft cover $19.99.

“This book is for everybody. It is for the believer to encourage them more into their Christian life. It is also for the secular world, to encourage them that we are living in end times and this world has to come to an end as it is. It is an encouragement to those who are not saved to give their lives to Christ.”

The Glorious Appearing is Thomas’ first publication but she is already working on her second book.

          Apparently your EDOMITE RACE THAT IS WHY THEY SPEND SO MUCH EFFORT ON THE DECEPTION YOU GODLESS RACE. Two races were in Sarah belly as twins the "Good Book" said Esau and Jacob. One will be stronger than the other the ELDEST will serve the youngest. Jacob was already promised the birthright before they were born so Jacob couldn't have stolen Esau Birthright. Jacob is the father of the REAL HEBREW JEW RACE not the KHAZAR fake ones in PALESTINE cause there is no real ISRAEL. Esau is the father of the Caucasian race, when Esau came from the field famish he as his little brother Jacob for food. Jacob was like I give you a plate if you recognize the birth right is mine. This FOOL Esau was like yea who cares thus becoming EDOM instead of Esau. To be cursed forever more thus the race of EDOMITE who was to SERVE but Balck race had to much compassion and will still getting screwed to this day. The End.

      It also states in the bible that if a woman finds her husband in a fight with another man she must grab her husband by the testicles - for those that have most likely never even read the bible, this nonsense can be found in Deuteronomy 25 11-12 - but can anyone explain why this is so important that a god must have this written in his silly book?

          He still loves me, but if i dont believe in his nonsense he will send me to the depths of this earth where i will burn and suffer for an eternity - but he loves me.

    I don`t see any problem. if she had a brown color or pink color someone would have found fault. so there is no basis for this foolish comment. The fact is that God became human and for me it don`t matter the color or race in which God`s son is manifested. and this particular portrait of God`s son is unique among all others so don`t be fulled by the skeptics and who think they no so much and trying to make sense from their nonsense and their little head knowledge for I had a vision of Christ with a similar portrait of that book these folks are agents of the Devil and don`t mine them buy the book it has lots of good material for your souls.

      Christ is clearly described in Revelations 1: (12-16). Any artist worth his salt could have done a good likeness of that description, if he wanted to.

      And how do you know that I do not know Christ? Is it because I am convinced, based on the history of the world, that Christ could NOT have looked anything like the person pictured on the cover of that book? Maybe it would have been better if there was no picture at all.

    I am not surprised because the Spirit of Anti-Christ is in the air; and will infest in any dirty heart and dirty mind. I am not surprised because, this is an evil Generation in which crimes, drugs, all forms of madness and sexual immorality.
    Drugs, Philosophical speculation and madness and chaos is the order of the Day. It is a generation that is full of wickedness and all Jesus came to do was to die and save them from this rot but they prefer to remain in the cancer of sin that eating them up and they love it and they seems to be headed in a down spiral with no means of return and believe me it is frightening because believe: they are headed for the bottom less pit of hell that was not created for them and if the believe it is fiction they will eventually find out that that place is real after all. And we know that the abolition of slavery that they are using to to try to subvert the Word of God was an act of God. He miraculously freed black man who he created and love and die for from slavery.

    finally, these sick heads see the Holy Scriptures as threat to their Philosophical stupidness and gross immorality and so they are putting up a fight like the Apostle Paul like the Roman empire like the communism like maxis Lenin but careful for you are to small to fight against the pricks but take hid and repent but careful for Bob Marley said that," the preaching of the Gospel soon be done all over the World and wa you ar go do" because is this same" Jesus" you are going to sea. so please take this warning and repent of your wickedness and your foolishness and save your sin sick souls from eternal damnation, Amen.

      Woah there. I read most of what you said but based off of evidence and complete facts I could not take any of it seriously. Just for the note- I believe in God.

      First of all-
      Hell does not have a bottomless pit. This phrase used by the masses including "burn in hell for all eternity" is not true and by no means is it even in the bible.

      Slavery is not abolished. At all. Go to Africa and America alone and you will still see that slavery is still very real- especially to black people who have had the most gruesome slavery of all.

      Next, to say that the freedom of slavery was an act of God- Most of these enslaved people did not believe in God and they were converting them also. In the bible it says that the punishment for not following the laws of God should be physical suffering/attacks. My question to you is- which one is right and which one is wrong? The slavery to teach them word of God or the freedom from being forced to learn it? lol

      Lastly, Daisy, John and the rest of the people are not "sick heads" or "the natural man" because they have researched and studied way more about the bible and have more facts that seems to make more sense than you by what I'm seeing. And through that alone I would say that they are much more spiritual than you because they are actually seriously searching about God and putting things into question.

      Do you even know what philosophical means? relating or devoted to the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence.

      So finding out about your existence is stupid? Then by all means we are all stupid by what your saying.
      Even the bible is considered philosophical. It doesnt mean there isnt supporting evidence by the way.

      And lastly, I'm not here trying to bring you down and I don't even dislike or hate you- everyone makes mistakes. In fact, some of what you meant to say is true. I just think you should educate yourself more before speaking about the word of God before you confuse others or turn more heads away from God... which is what you probably just did to the people you're directing it to.

    Congrats on your book Christine. Yes some people have gone over board with their disrespect, but what many are asking, is why would a Black person see Jesus as White, or portray him as white. Did she really see a white Jesus in her visions or is she just subconsciously recalling what has been engrained in all of us for years? And I consider it a valid question. To this end, we are still slaves mentally because everything better than us or everything that we look up to has to be White. Being a Christian does not mean we all have to be Naive and gullable. Anytime you question anything with your God given brain, all of a sudden people call it's the devil, anti christ and all kinda crazy talk. If he didn't want us to question anything, why would he give us a brain...?

    Dear audience:

    I believe that we are missing the mark because we have been bewitched with the color of God`s son, just
    as the Galatians were bewitched with date and time; rather than looking at the most important thing that
    Christ brought to Man -Salvation. And we also take note of the denial and subversion of the Holy Scriptures.
    I don`t expect those sceptics, cretics and athiests to believe nor understand my language: because I am talking
    from the Spirit realm, and as a Christian I and we have a resposibility to declare the word of God: the NIV
    which the the commenter claim are lies He doesn`t know what he is talking about: because whether it is
    NIV,KJV, the great bible,NASV, or the Jewish old Testament, in whatever language they are writen this is the word
    of God and they have very little difference and they are considered scriptures and are part of the conon which
    means that those writings have gone through the most detailed and careful process by the sanhidren and
    the Apostles and the Priest Historians who were inspired by God`s holy Spirit (2Pet. 1:21) 2Tim.3:16,
    and the scripture was the mind of God from the beginning: (St. Joh. Chap. 1) and so Christ was the
    humanisation of the word: (St. Joh. 1:14) Christ, prior to becoming flesh had a pre-incarnate existence
    and also He was not anglo-saxon but he created anglo- saxon and both heaven and earth and all things:
    Genesis 1:26 & ST. JH. 1:3. moreover, God told moses to write the goings of the children of Israel.Numbers 33:2
    and there were many writings and lots of information: the book of the apocrypha, pseudepigrapha,
    assyrian eponym list, akkadian text, Greek texts, Babylion records, there was nothing about mohammed
    because he was not yet in existence he just came in the 4th Century after the Bible was long written.
    there are also other jewish texts. But the holy Spirit did not chose them but wrote 66 books and
    and rejected the rest and the 66books were considered the word of God and holy scriptures and which were sanctioned by the holy Spirit. And all the NIV, KJV, NASV etc. are translations from the original text and show little
    difference when compared to the original and Greek text. So I would like to know what lies are you
    talking about in the NIV or any of the other authorised translation of the bible or the
    old and new Testament. It may be that you have another book, and I ask: who validated your book who is the writer of your book? is your book inspired by God? did your book went through any proof test
    that would make it worthy of any kind of study about God? do people life change when they read your book? or does it make them criminals and murderers and fornicators or does your book teach respect for
    human life, love and forgiveness and real peace? or does it teach hate and how to a poligamist? does your book
    promote love and peace in any society or does it create total chaos and destruction.
    Well the Bible has worked well for me and us in the Caribbean and in the world as a whole and all who trust
    in it has a good testimony Of God`s goodness blessings and deep seated peace
    that comes from his word through his son the Lord and savior Jesus Christ. and I don`t know of any other book
    which does that. so if your book does not give you peace joy or satisfaction or
    salvation or does not revolutionize your life and you find that you are most miserable.
    I suggest that you are have a false book and you need not let anyone see that garbage
    just burn it up and take up the holy scriptures trust it`s words you will experience the difference

    and finally, only the Bible the old and New testament has the raw material for any study about
    God. therfore othe ther book are not qualifed to do that because they are not inspired
    and are not part of the canon So. that is why we have people like you making all those flawed comments
    about God`s holy word and his son because You are reading a false book or books that is poisoning your minds.

    Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

    Be ready, Jesus is coming back again. It is irrelevant whether he is black, white, pink or purple. You must accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour to reign with God in heaven.

    Don't wait until you are in a crisis or on your death bed. You may not be in the right frame of mind to do so. I've never heard anyone said before, "Devil" help me. It is always God help me.

    You cannot get to God but through His Son Jesus Christ. The devil came to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus came that we may have life more abundantly.

    As I think you know, Humans wrote the books in the bible, and there are even books that were said should be in the bible but are not, and then there is language barrier- not just Hebrew language but also Old English language. Then there is the issue with people taking the context out of new bibles, which spin completely off from what the original text states (using words that may have not meant completely what the English language additionally gave in definition to the context). So truth to be told, no. God did not write any of the English versions of the Bible- not in any way or situation you look at it. Lets even break it down to this- The best version of the English bible is King James, yet- it was the third version. PLUS the english version translations were directed by kings. And then there's this neat note in revelations at the last back page of the bible that states that anyone who changes the meaning of the bible will become severely ill/diseased or even die. Would you like to read up on your history of how these translators died? Even the new books created today.

    Just sharing knowledge for all you readers who don't actually read or research about the bible- or any 'god book' for that matter. Most people even take things out of context and spread it like disease. And the masses repeat this crap. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have ever lasting life"- what does Perish mean? Complete Ruin and destruction. How can your soul exist after complete destruction of a person? Last time I checked what made a person was a soul and their body. So then how can someone burn in hell for eternity? Food for thought. Ofcourse we wont burn forever. We will just no longer exist. Why do people falsely believe that a loving God would make someone suffer forever anyways?

    Then there's the white supremacy crap that has been going on. Turning africa upside down and 100 times smaller than it's actual size to make their countries look like the biggest- thus most powerful. Denying Egypt of being a successful (THEE MOST SUCCESSFUL) civilization in terms of discovering power and knowledge, calling our people "Brown Caucasians" and allowing the Greeks to steal all the books from the libraries after war and claim as their own- and have factual evidence of but continue to to write that white people made all this maths and knowledge up.

    Then they allow a false lie, of Michelangelo's cousin to be the image of Jesus- because Jesus was actually brown skin/ or lets be blunt- black- And also turning the Catholic Church upside down to praise Mary and the white jesus. While they created seal (THAT IS THE NAME- SEAL) to state that the pope is the god on earth and he changed the sabbath from Saturday to Sunday (in the main official catholic church in England)- since WAY back before many denominations were made and then guess what? They all followed the dumb law thinking it was the right thing.

    MAN masses are uneducated just SIMPLY because they take word for everything they hear or read... and mostly black people because we are one of the last races yet to be freed from slavery- so we are poverty driven thus uneducated too!

    With that being said, how can we trust these white people to read, translate, create books about us or any kind of knowledge they want to share with us? Just because they're white doesn't mean its true or right or the way to go even! And- with all this being said I believe in God but these are factual evidence I have found and there are many more. So please stop sitting down on your bottoms- your rear ends and learn... don't even pick up this nonsense.

    I am very much aware of the fact that people have mis-used the Word of God the Bible for their own benefit
    and not only the Bible. Some people mis-use their office their position their authority
    etc. for their own profit and it does not matter who they hurt or destroy; and that includes our own black Leaders who themselves initiate slavery on their own black people. Mohammed also, enforced slavery in north africa on our Black people during the Mohammedan Empire and He also used the successful black muslims as His servants. The Romans also enforced slavery, including
    the Europeans. The Japanies also enforced slavery in South East Asia.
    Concerning the enslavement of my race I deplore it to the core and I believe that their should not only be apologies but also reparation.However, should I use that scenarion to subvert the word of God that evil men use to commit their atrocity: the Old and New Testament that more than 75% of the world population know to be flawless and inspired, including us in the BVI, that we call a Christian community. You had to expect some opposition. If you were to make a statement like that about the Koran in Iran; Today you would have been History; but thank God for a degree of fredom that we are grossly abusing in this Christian community. (NIV have lies) and insulting remarks about (Jesus Christ) those muslems, or if probably you are one you, would have supported the retaliation against that infidel as they call them, But we Christians are tolerant and different.

    looked at your interpretation of the Holy Scriptures and I observed that you have your own rational or your own humanistic philosopy which does not amount to anythig: because the scriptures is Spiritually disearned

    I suggest that if you want to understand the interpretation of scripture that you come down and take the Apostle Paul`s example. When we do interpretation of Scripture we pray to Almighty God for help then we look at context, content, culture, we look at the scripture systematically, from a world view point, from a historical view point, we also look at the Geography and finally we look the all the facts from a Biblical theological view point then we do our analysis, antithesis and other consultations with other texts with the Holy Scriptures as the reference point in this way a very accurate synthesis is inevitable.But, this kind of crazy rational you are pouring, taking about you are interpreting the holy Scriptures is really empty. finally, I refer you to the New Testament in Philippians Chap. 3. Trust me it will do you well if you accept.

    Love

    And thus saith the spirit of our ancestors, teach our people that they may emerge from this folly.
    Those who tout the Bible does not know its history. The first 5 books of the Bible were in existence
    written by the Ancient Egyptians 5,000 years before the first Bible was written. The first five books
    are about BLACK PEOPLE, stories of Ancient Egyptians, but Europeans have doctored them and called
    them their story. We need to start studying the history of the Bible. Can anyone here say when
    was the first English Bible written. How about 1611? Facts and Evidence wins an argument.
    One cannot use the disputed Bible to win a debate. The Bible is not God's words, but the words
    of writers, giving their own interpretation of things. When did God visit these writers and told them
    these stories? People wake up, religions are used to control masses. Europeans have used it to
    control Black People. They are suffering now for the lies they have written around the globe.
    Get up, Vatican, from sitting on the history of Black People that you stole from Egypt. Thank God
    we are wiser and reading more now. White God, White Saviour coming to take us home in the sky.
    Poor Mankind, buddy!!
