About the author

Virgil (70 B.C-19 B.C) is regarded as the greatest Roman poet, known for his epic, The Aeneid (written about 29 B.C. unfinished). Virgil was born on October 15, 70 B.C., in a small village near Mantua in Northern Italy. He attended school at Cremona and Milan, and then went to Rome, where he studied mathematics, medicine and rhetoric, and completed his studies in Naples. Between 42 and 37 B.C. Virgil composed pastoral poems known as Ecologues, and spent years on the Georgics.At the urging of Augustus Caesar, Virgil began to write The Aeneid, a poem of the glory of Rome under Caesars rule. Virgil devoted the remaining time of his life, from 30 to 19 B.C., to the composition of The Aeneid, the national epic of Rome and to glory of the Empire. The poet died in 19 B.C of a fever he contracted on his visit to Greece with the Emperor. It is said that the poet had instructed his executor Varius to destroy The Aeneid, but Augustus ordered Varius to ignore this request, and the poem was published.

For where you find the Blood of the Cross, you will find the anointing of the Holy Spirit ~ Benny Hinn When Derick Virgil, at eight years old, asked his mother How are we washed in the Blood of Jesus when He died 2000 years ago and there is none here to wash us? Based on James 1:5, she told him the best thing she could have ever told him, Ask God Derick, Ask God. So he did. Now, after over 30 years of study, this book has emerged and could be considered one of the deepest Bible Studies ever written on The Holy Third Person of the Trinity & Jesus Holy Blood. Based on Theoretical Physics, Logic and Hebrew and Greek word etymologies (history and meanings) in scriptures such as: Leviticus 17:11 the Life of the Flesh is in the Blood and Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the Blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? and many more the author reveals how the Blood of Jesus, through the Holy Ghost, washes us from sin. Also revealed are connections between Jesus turning water into wine, God allowing Moses to turn the waters of Egypt into blood, Noahs ark, the Rapture and other major Biblical occurrences. The author invites readers to join him in a sort of dimensional Crime Scene Investigation at the foot of the Cross to determine the true nature of Jesus Blood and the mysterious way It ties together all of these epic Biblical events. Hopefully, while you may already "know" the Holy Ghost personally, this book will help you appreciate Him more, depend on Him more, and honor the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in a different way. If you would just like to know the Third Person of The Divine Trinity better or understand Christianity better, this book is for you as well. The book is available ONLINE in Paperback ($19.99 @ AuthorHouse), Kindle ($7.99), Nook ($8.39) & Hardcover ($25.99 @ AuthorHouse). Follow the author and the book on Twitter @HolyGhostBook
