Face to Face with Jesus Christ



In 1994, at the darkest hour of my life, homeless, after the loss of my Eco-Veture capital company and having my tree planting earnings for the year scooped by the Tax Man, after planting 1 million trees over my lifetime, living in a tent in California, flooded in a severe rain storm, Jesus Christ appeared to me in a light 1,000 times brighter than our sun, and with a Glory of Innocence, Love, Ecstasy, Peace, Power, beauty, Wisdom and Grace even brighter. I fell to my face, unable to stand in the most awesome power in the Universe. I could see in one second that Jesus is God in the Highest. He was not a prophet as the Muslims, say, not a false prophet as many Jews say, but truly the Son of God, but God in the Highest disguised as a man, who merely appeared to be the son, but that the Father-Mother was hidden in him for those who could bear the sight of it.

Jesus began to speak to me and took me on the most amazing discourse and journey of my life. I saw Hell, Purgatory and the multi level Heavens. In this book, people can learn what he told me, and also there are 2 more meetings with him, and one with Mary.

This is a true story of a struggling environmentalist and spiritual seeker who, in the darkest hour of his life, encounters Jesus Christ.  He describes three face-to-face meetings with Jesus, a journey through the spiritual heavens, and an encounter with Mary, the mother of Christ. In this book, David Sereda delivers the Lord's message to humankind as it moves into the new millennium.

Face to Face with Jesus Christ unravels many hidden mysteries:
Who is Jesus Christ really?
What qualifies us to enter the Heavens and evolve into higher ones?
What is the meaning of judgment and how are our souls judged at the time of our death?
What are our numerous options for life in the universe after we have faced our own judgment?
Where is planet earth inside the spiritual universe and what caused us to be born here?
Did the Supreme Lord really create the human condition of pleasure and pain?
How does Jesus advise us and view the current condition of humankind?
How does Jesus view the condition of the entire Christian religion and the church on earth today?
What can we do to prepare our souls to meet Jesus Christ, Heaven's Light, an Angel or Saint?
What is the mystery of the promised "Second Coming" and what will it be like?

After I had to raise $18,000 to self publish this book at www.BlueDolphinPublishing.com, Paul Clemens, the owner, took the money, only used $1,000 to print digitally on demand, and has sold over 1,000 copies and never paid me back a dime. He stole $17,000 from myself and an investor.

First Books only charges $1,000 to do the same job and they give 60% to the author. I told Blue Dolphin Publishing to stop selling this book, and to cease and desists and return all materials, and he has not done so. He is a thief, and a former Christian Scholar at Notre Dame University.

You can see the book for sale at: http://www.bluedolphinpublishing.com/Face.htm It is also for sale at Amazon.com

Please protest and write to Paul Clemens and ask him to return my book, at: Clemens@netshel.net

Sincerely,
David Sereda/Author

Well David,learned a long time ago never to do business with people who call themselves christians,esp if they are fundie types. This comes from a man who spent his whole life from age 13 to 50 inside church life eventually becoming a Russian Orthodox Archbishop. At 49 I was fed up and had the means to become a hermit in Hawaii. Well,I did not follow my own advice and bought land on a contract agreement with a fundie. You guessed it,he screwed me. Still a hermit,though,on donated land on the same island so on it goes.

Can I buy the book in such a manner that you will receive your due compensation ?

I can relate to your experience with the light you describe, as well as the dark heart of some men who consider themselves Christian.

How can I get your book with you receiving the benefit?

The word Christian is a guise for many to do business with greed. Jesus warns us of this in Revelation: that Satan hides in the image of Mary, his Mother, the Church.

For now, there is no way to buy the book so that I amy receive even my investment back. Paul Clemens stole that from me at Blue Dolphin Publishing. But I advise to read it until I can regain control of the book.

A response from Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. to a blog posted by David Sereda on Sunday, July 17th 2005, on his website

To address the issues brought up in the blog…

In fact, this book was not self published, it was professionally published by Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. Through this publisher, the book was edited and proofread. It was set up digitally and the cover design by the author required the skills of our graphic artist to finally become a finished cover. Promotion packages and complimentary copies were sent out to reviewers and book buyers. It was offered to foreign publishers for translation and sale in other languages. The title was placed with major distributors in America and overseas, with Amazon.com and many other online bookstores. It has been placed in the catalogs of Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. and the catalogs of distributors and booksellers here and abroad…The type of publishing that only costs $1000 just simply prints the book…there are no editorial services, no promotion, and no connection with national and international distributors in order that the book can be ordered and sold by the national chains, and by bookstores around the world.

Paragraph 13 of his author contract states “Any sums due and owing from the AUTHOR to the PUBLISHER, whether or not arising out of this AGREEMENT, may be deducted from any sums due from the PUBLISHER to the AUTHOR pursuant to this AGREEMENT.” David’s author contract calls for a standard 10% royalty, all of which has been paid to him by issuing credits against his outstanding bill. Since his book was published, David has purchased books from Blue Dolphin Publishing totaling $639.81 (including shipping and tax). He has never paid for these purchases. All royalties due, in the amount of $294.94, have been credited to his account, leaving a balance of $344.90 still owed by David Sereda to Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc.

The total investment in this book was $17,000. To date the expenses are over $19,000. There are two investors in this book. By contract, one of the investors is responsible for all expenses, and, as stated, the expenses have exceeded the invested amount. Therefore, nothing is due to that investor at this time. The other is due a small amount, but mail to this investor has been returned, and at this moment, we have no way of contacting this person.

Calling Mr. Clemens a thief is slanderous and libelous, and totally unChristian! He and Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. have dealt with David fairly and according to the contracts he signed. His book simply has not sold well. In nearly 8 years, only 817 copies of the book have been sold in spite of promotional efforts by the publisher and by the author himself.

We at Blue Dolphin Publishing, Inc. are very much in tune with David and his work. Therefore, we, especially Paul who was in a monastery for 8 years, are surprised that David would spread this falsehood without addressing the facts.

Below you will find the statement of account for Face To Face With Jesus Christ…David has received the complete accounting with worksheets and backup for all sales and expenses, purchases and credits.

If I invested (with partners) actually $18,000 to set up and have a book avaiable for printing digitally on demand, then why does the same service cost $0 at www.Lulu.com? They even pay their royalties. I lost $18,000 and my investors are furious. Paul Clemens is a thief. He charged me thousands to design a simple cover that his graphic artists couldn't do. I designed the main art for the cover. Now that I know photoshop, I realize how easy it is to do this. It takes about an hour. What Jody does not mention is that I was charged $18,000 for services that should be free. They wanted to publish my book. Then they charged me for samples to send to various places at full cost. That is why they say I owe them another $300. This is a crime. I have also asked them to stop publishing my book. I will make it available at lulu.com. They have not answered me nor returned my discs and materials.
Sincerely,
David Sereda

All I can say is, this book is amazing!!! and sorry for all problems about publishing, etc. but I think it was worthy.
I read it and there are many things that matches with my personal theories and I never met David!

How many copies need to be sold to bring this account out of the red?

I'd like to see the publishers quantify a projection so that an expectation can be set.

Thanks.

I'm your fundie huckleberry.

David, what do you think about the medical purposes of using marijuana? Do you think Jesus might aprove that? Just smoking wisely. It helps my anxiety but only when I dont abuse it.

Please help me with this dilemma. Thank you.

David, I too have a book published with Blue Dolphin and have lost even more than you. I have a new book I want published and I am uncomfortable with trying to get free from them. Is it that easy and how come you do not mention Face to Face with Lulu and your new book. I am stimied as to what to do here.

David, if you met with Jesus Christ, I don't think that he meant for you to profit from your encounter. Something as divine as you describe should be shared with the entire world. You should go on all the talk shows and carry the message given to you by our savior.

Your rewards in heaven will be alot greater than what you can gain here on earth. I guess you did not learn from your encounter.

What year is this Jesus Christ is suppose to return to earth. It's been over 2,000 years of not having
Jesus not returned on earth. Is this suppose to be a true event or a false event. Or do we see this Jesus/God upon death. It would be neat to hear from someone who knows or have knowledge of this event. I'm a handicapped and a slow learner from over 20 years of suffering and that does not include the military. I would like to hear from anyone on this topic. http://www.efn.org/~scan

INTERESTING ! --- YOU MEET CHRIST FACE TO FACE --- I on the other hand have the " mission " to VALIDATE that CHRIST gave us the necessary teachings in the bible TO ASCEND TO THE NEXT HIGHER SPIRITUAL LEVEL HE DESCRIBED IT AS THE KINGDOM OF GOD --- ( THAT LIES WITHIN EACH OF US )this knowledge has been right there in the BIBLE for 2000 years --- BUT SADLY, HAS NOT BEEN TAUGHT ---- Too much of the world HATES the TRUTH, David --- they have tried to kill me 5 times now --- BUT GOD has protected me because IT IS TIME FOR THE TRUTH TO BE REVEALED --- and yes --- I have had visits by ANGELS in human form with messages --- and many other interesting experiences as I continue to THREAD THE EYE OF THE SPIRITUAL NEEDLE

 
At 5:01 AM, Blogger ken said...

I need to add that the basic problem faced by Christians ( and their churches ) has been SELF - RIGHTOUSNESS ( I am right --- you are wrong ) In the SERMON on the mount, JESUS STATES THE SOLUTION ! " Seek ye FIRST, the KINGDOM OF GOD ( that HE latter explained LIES WITHIN US ) and HIS ( GODS ) RIGHTOUSNESS ----- WHY ? --- because in finding GODS RIGHTOUSNESS, HE helps you get rid of that HORRIBLE SELF - RIGHTOUSNESS ! --- It is easy to prove that the DENOMINATIONS / CHURCHES only teach about ONE HALF of CHRISTS COMMANDS / TEACHINGS ---- simply go thru the four Gospels and write down everything that HE said that sounds like a COMMAND --- or a teaching that must not be ignored--- You will quickly UNDERSTAND HOW the " Religous experts " have cleverly IGNORED HIS MOST IMPORTANT TEACHINGS --- and thus --- have become the " BLIND LEADING THE BLIND "

 
At 5:19 AM, Blogger ken said...

I have written / published as ESSAYS the 5 or 6 steps that CHRIST taught to FIND the KINGDOM OF GOD --- I think it is time for me to establish my own blogsite with this info on it --- WARNING --- everyones experience will be different --- as difficult as it may be to believe --- GOD will have a CUSTOM PROGRAM for each of the BILLIONS of people on this planet --- Because we are all part of the " HERD " --- it is difficult to grasp the basic problem we all face We are litteraly PRISONERS ---- PRISONERS of our own bodies filled with its own NEEDS and DESIRES --- But thru GODS help ( and that is exactly what it takes ) HE can help us ESCAPE and find TRUE FREEDOM and our REAL SELF --- the PERSON GOD INTENDED US TO BE WHEN we came here---- We are essentially SPIRITUAL BEINGS in human form that are faced with living as HUMANS ( on our temporary visit to planet earth )
