Port Arthur author unfolds truth about biblical battle in enlightening hardback book
PORT ARTHUR, Texas — Author Jean-Louis Blackburn announces the nationwide hardback release of his thought-provoking religious book, “War of the Lords: The Hidden Meaning of Ezekiel 38-39.”
In “War of the Lords,” the Battle of Gog and Magog cannot possibly be about a physical battle to occur yet in the future. Most of the place-names are not on the map. The people have changed, and the technology for weaponry has changed. But two types of weaponry remain the same: the armament of Satan and the full armor of God.
In this book, Blackburn explores the possibility of Ezekiel 38 — foretelling a real physical battle — but quickly discards this idea as unworkable. He then seeks from the Scriptures a viable interpretation. This study leads the author to the crucifixion of Christ and the consequent spread of the Gospel.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Blackburn, who is based in Texas, has been studying the Bible since 1978, when he was 8 years old. He is not a scholar, but his love of reading the Scriptures has helped him to understand parts that seemed misunderstood to the world at large. At the moment, Blackburn is satisfied with his life and will not change it, except to help more people to understand the Word.
