He Is Watching

Christians want to lead a righteous life, yet it can be a challenging desire to fulfill while existing in a society plagued by greed, jealousy, envy, and other sins. As a result, many believers want to know who we are today as a people, a nation, and a world, why we are here, what is life's ultimate purpose, how we will be judged after death, how God fits into all of this, and much more.

In a thought-provoking presentation, Diane Calabrese shares details from interviews with clergy from different denominations, applicable scripture, peer-reviewed research, and her own insights and reflections to offer an in-depth exploration of the values, morals, and crimes of humanity. Included with stories and books of the mystics, the book of Enoch, and ancient aliens (the fallen angels) as well as other profoundly important phenomena are testimonies from those who had near-death or out-of-body experiences, witnessed paranormal activity, or saw visions or apparitions of the Blessed Mother.

He Is Watching shares insights from clergy, the Bible, research, and a devoted Christian to help believers determine whether they are truly ready to meet Christ one day.
