Nephalim
Sight and Sound / March 20, 2017

The Nephalim are considered ‘the fallen ones’. Others call them Giants. They are also regarded as the offspring of fallen angels and human women, from Genesis chapter 6. Emphasis mine. 1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. What I really find fascinating is all cultures have stories regarding gods coming down to Earth and inhabiting with humankind. There can be an argument these same gods are the fallen angels. Most in the western world know of the Titans and other Greek mythology creatures. The website thoughtco.com has a good listing…

Sheol or Hell
Conversations / March 3, 2017

I came across an interesting question that was posted on a forum. The question was, “Do you think hell is real? Can a person’s actions really determine if they will enter hell after their death?” To this day, people are still inquiring about the after-life, and if our actions today will affect it. So, I had to post a response to the inquiry. My reply is below. My current novel,Sight and Sound takes a peek in the spiritual world. It is my thought, your worldview reflects on how you perceive the after-life and the actions you take currently. Thoughts? My reply: I lean more toward the traditional Christian worldview. Hell was created and intended for the fallen angels. The lake of fire is for Lucifer (Satan), the false prophet, and the beast. That being said, there are two different destinations for us and them. There are some reported to have seen hell it while nearly dead or officially dead and returned. The amount of these sightings cannot go unnoticed. I suggest they were not in hell, rather hades. I place for those unsaved souls. It would fall under the mythological tales regarding the underworld, or place of the dead. I…

Price Point for a Novel
Happenings / February 25, 2017

Authors spend a lot of time creating their story line for the purpose of entertainment or education through stories. It takes time, and brain power to put words into a viable world. The question is, how much is it worth for the authors to share this content? I just read an interesting article titled, Pricing your E-book at 99 cents. The author attempts to be neutral and lays out the pros and cons. The comments provided additional information and thought as the replies unveiled everyone’s idea on it. In my opinion, the decision of 99 cents comes down to Hoping to gain a wider audience Enticement of sales Having a few read my story in Sight and Sound has been humbling and educational. Once you believe you have an interesting story to convey, the real work is to get it in front as many eyes as possible. This again takes time and determination. Most of my books on Sight and Sound have thus far been given away. LOL.   #AuthorMattCole #SightandSound

Sight and Sound Novel’s Forward
Sight and Sound / February 16, 2017

Before the introduction of flesh, there lived another race. These entities were not flesh born, rather brought about by light, fire, and the heavenly bodies. The creator of these entities viewed them as his family. All was well until the creator expanded his creation to man. This new creation could not live in the higher dimensions, as the original race of beings. So the creator had placed man in the four dimensions of time and physical space. The original entities lived outside of this volume of space and marveled at the flesh born. Originally, the two races worked together. However, there rose an army of 200 celestial beings that made a pact among themselves. They fell from their dimension and became flesh. They took men’s daughters as their wives. These 200 had leaders, but all were viewed as gods and had children. These were those men of renown. The 200 and their children brought man into captivity. These grew to fight against the armies of the creator. This caused a division between the two opposing sides. The war was made and war continues to this very day. The leaders of the 200 were defeated by the armies of the creator and thrown into prison. Before their…

Grammar checks that is causing frustration
Happenings / February 13, 2017

I am going to tell on myself, with this writing. Perhaps doing so, it will help another person. I was having someone review some of my writing and they dinged me with grammar errors. Now, I never have been a fan of English. Which is odd coming from someone that actually have written articles for others and use emails as a primary form of communication. Researching my issue, I found my ‘Grammar’ check was not flagged in my Microsoft Word. Evidently, it was not flagged by default. Check here for grammar flag for Word 2013 The crazy thing is a friend had run this through grammarly.com. Yeah, she fixed a lot of errors. So moving on, I applied the flag and went through my novel again. I corrected those fragments in my book. Many were conversational, so I left those. Here is the crazy thing. Even though I ran the grammar check, it missed a specific paragraph someone pointed out to me as being grammatically in error. The paragraph is below.   Ryan was Samuel’s companion. He started to speak to him at a young age; Sam couldn’t remember his life without him. At first, his parents believed it was…
