This jULY 4TH impromptu show is to celebrate the real meaning of independence, James Gandolfini's memory, and his importance as the fiercely independent Ancient King of Sicily during the Rise of the Ancient Roman Empire.
Through time Sicily has been at the heart of great civilizations, at other times it has been nothing more than a colonial backwater. Its fortunes have often waxed and waned depending on events out of its control, in earlier times a magnet for immigrants in later times a land of emigrants. Sicily is part of the Mezzogiorno (southern Italy, including Sicily and often Sardinia), a region historically characterized by a predominantly agrarian economy, quasi-feudal land tenure, sharp class differences, and the vendettas and criminal activities of the Camorra in Naples and the Mafia in Sicily.
The history of Sicily has seen Sicily usually controlled by greater powers—Roman, Vandal, Byzantine, Islamic, Norman, Hohenstaufen, Catalan, Spaniard—but also experiencing short periods of independence, as under the Greeks and later as the Emirate then Kingdom of Sicily. Although today part of the Republic of Italy, and the largest island in thr Mediterranean, it maintains its own distinct culture.
Once again, it is my privilege and pleasure to present special revelations about our Past Lives, and in this impromptu show spurred by the Passing of an important Ancient figure, which famous and powerful Ancient Roman James Gandolfini was , a renouned actor who today was in effect portraying himself on screen.
Reincarnation is about Rewards, Paybacks, Life Missions and Legacies, and Gandolfini, who was Ancient Rome's notorious King of Sicily, Gaius Veres, lived and ruled during that very tumultuous century stretching from 100--0 BC, when so MANY powerful men were scrambling for power and control of Ancient Rome, a period during which Jesus Christ also was born and died.
Personally, Gandolfini provided a reality check for me about what life really was like in Ancient Rome. As in his numerous screen portrayals, Gaius Veres was a very likable guy who did a lot of bad things. And if you are unfamiliar, look up pictures of Sicily online, for it is a stupendously beautiful island, which had the honor of being designated the "Bread Basket" of Ancient Rome.

Sicily’s cultural and historic relevance have not been explored seriously in film, yet Sicily is “the most invaded place on the planet,” and the island’s story rivals both Greece and Egypt as a primary source for Western ideas.
“Unfortunately, organized crime is the only part of Sicily’s culture most of us know anything about, thanks to ‘The Godfather’ movies and so many others,” said Spano, whose paternal grandparents were first-generation Sicilian.
“Reimagining Sicily” will explore history, family, religion arts and culture and their effects on the people of Sicily.
“Sicilians have made formidable contributions to art, architecture, and the humanities,” Spano notes. “And then there’s the food. There are Sicilian foods that are well known globally now. There are also Sicilian foods that few of us know about.”
According to Spano, this story of Sicily will “reimagine” the ebb and flow of the region’s varied and remarkable history.
Spano is also writing a companion book for the documentary, also entitled Reimagining Sicily.

PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: "Why Studying Bible Prophecy is So Important (Part 8)" from Dr. Tim LaHaye
Fulfilled Prophecy Credentials the Second Coming of Christ
From the earliest days of Christianity, Christians have always believed Jesus Christ would come again. He and His apostles, who wrote the New Testament, promised He would -- 321 times. That is probably why every church council that has produced a doctrinal statement or edict during the last 2,000 years has included a statement about the promise of His second coming.
We may not agree as to the timing of Christ’s return or some of the details God provides about that event, but from the first century on, through the Roman period, the Protestant reformation, up to the present day, Christians have unanimously believed He is coming again. In fact, we can say His second coming is three times as certain as was His first coming. His first appearance on earth is a fact of history that fulfilled 109 messianic prophecies. If there are almost three times as many Bible prophecies foretelling Christ’s second coming, then we can conclude His second coming is three times as certain to occur as was His first. For as we have seen, fulfilled prophecy credentials or guarantees His return.
