Archangels

by Anthony Nicolosi

Book Image Not Available
Overview

I didn’t think I believed in Christ or God anymore, but with David, all he had to do was look at me, and I knew deep inside me somewhere I had never lost faith in anything.”

A Gay Messiah. A Gay Lucifer. Archangels. A Powerful Love of God.

Do angels walk among us? Do they love as we do, or does their love exist on a higher plane, one closer to God? Can two gay men accept their true spiritual path and navigate the awesome and overwhelming journey from ordinary human to archangel to ultimate communion with Jesus Christ?

When former street hustler and runaway farm boy Michael meets wealthy, sophisticated David, he finally feels truly loved for the first time. Soon, Michael begins to understand that David has an important destiny to fulfill; one Michael may have unknowingly been a part of from the very start.

From the lonely fields of the Oklahoma prairie to the gritty streets of Hollywood to the upper echelons of America’s wealthiest families, Archangels chronicles the compelling love story of two gay men brought together by the forces of God, Jesus and the archangels that oversee the past, present, and future of humanity. As Michael and David learn to trust and believe in one another, they find themselves facing a spiritual battle more fierce than they could have ever imagined.

Description

“I know this is what God made me … He wanted me to be a gay man so he could have this experience with me. In my spirit, in my soul…this is why he made me…so that he could experience it with me from the clay, to the sparkling dust of spirit that is also me, flowing into heaven.”

Reckless. Angry. Betrayed.
Raised rough on an Oklahoma farm, Michael left home at an early age to escape a hopeless future and the scorn of his conservative upbringing. When the only person who ever understood him dies, Michael abandons his love of music and sets out to carve a new life for himself on the tough, dangerous streets of Los Angeles. Scraping by as a novice hustler, Michael becomes the victim of a brutal attack that leaves him shattered, scared and hopeless. The subsequent betrayal of a friend during his time of need sends Michael in a tailspin.

Bruised, battered and forlorn, Michael meets David and suddenly finds himself enveloped in the kind of love and security he never dreamed he could attain.

But is David too good to be true? Can Michael learn to trust after the treacheries that have scarred his soul? And what of the supernatural events and visions that have begun to cross over from his imaginings into the real world?

What is David hiding?

What is the real purpose of their coming together?

Do Angels walk among us, and can they fall in love?


Successful. Spiritual. Solitary.
David has lived a life of unlimited love and luxury. Raised by supportive parents, David has always known he has a major role to fill, one that has the potential to uplift humanity and bring harmony to the world. He’s been preparing all his life to ascend the mantel of his forefathers, and he’s always felt confident he can overcome any obstacles in his path.

Then David meets Michael, and he realizes love can exist on a higher plane. With Michael, David feels truly alive, but he knows he’ll have to be patient as he can sense Michael’s pain and suspicion. As he introduces Michael to a new world, he revels in the joy and love growing around them. But after a series of unexpectedly tragic events, David finds himself balanced on the edge of truly fundamental change.

Can he follow in his family’s footsteps and deliver on the promises made by his ancestors? And will Michael be strong enough to stand by his side as he fights for love amidst the forces of evil and the tremendous battle to come between God’s Archangels?


A Common Bond, A True Love, and a Spiritual Awakening.
David and Michael come from wildly different backgrounds, and it’s a miracle they ever found each other. But miracles have a way of happening despite the odds, especially when you have God on your side. While both men have an important role to play in Christ, they’ll have to learn together to fight the evil on earth and in heaven.

Because when the angels arrive, the fight for love will be more important than ever before.


Trigger Warning: This book does contain a possible trigger for some readers.

What readers have to say about Archangels:

“What I really like about the book was that it cast gay relationships as positive role models both spiritually and humanly.”

“The research and/or personal experiences of the author are usually well integrated, as are the out-of-body experiences of [Michael]. It is such a fine introduction to the activities of archangels with daily human life that I ended up reading the book twice.”

About the author

Hi, everyone! Growing up in the American West shaped the person and writer that I am today. I was born in El Paso, Texas, but raised in Oklahoma City. As a young adult, I pushed myself to the west coast, living first in San Diego and then Santa Barbara, California, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Film at Brooks Institute of Photography in 1992. Later, I relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada to complete my Masters in Education in 2005 through the University of Phoenix online program.

While I’ve earned a paycheck working in insurance (25 years) and property management (15 years), I’ve always been committed to creative expression. I gained a few credits in the entertainment industry, including the management of “The Newport '69 Pop Festival” footage (Jimi Hendrix, Experience Museum, Bill Gates) and video production for clients as varied as the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, David H. Murdock’s Arabian horse farm, and a PSA for the National Association of Handicapped Riders with Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

I began writing on this book at the age of sixteen, pay attention to my preface, and have several lifelong projects (Short stories, Screenplays, Poems, and Novels).

Life seems to push you in the direction it wants you to go, only to realize you’ve been on the path you’ve needed to be on the entire way. I lost my father in 2001 to heart disease, and my mother in 2010 to colon cancer. Most of my personal relationships have been short-lived. I did not officially come out as a gay man until I was thirty-four. I experienced the dogmatic turmoil of being raised by a Catholic father, and a Church of Christ mother, and being a gay child in the Bible belt of Oklahoma. I did experience some of the sins of Los Angeles, if that’s truly what they were. From an Oklahoma child’s perspective, some activities were certainly “sinful,” but from the perspective of an adult who has truly learned to stand in the presence of Angels, Christ, and God, those activities were not sins. My life is His life.

While I did draw upon my own personal experiences while writing this story, and do see myself in both of the main characters, these two are very much their own, and they told me their story. I have no idea where a lot of this came from; perhaps deep inside of me, and perhaps from another realm of existence where dreams are created and do come true in whatever way they can. I learned, as I hope you will learn, through their realms of angelic existence. The closest novel to my heart has always been “A Separate Peace” by John Knowles. I felt my characters the same, bonding in their life’s experiences.

I have always forged forward despite life’s attempts to keep me down and away from what I most desire. I love animals and have been quite active with horses and animal rescue. I have three beautiful sisters, seven awesome nieces and nephews, and five grandnephews! I’ve met and made friends with some pretty spectacular people.

My love for a beautiful angel brought me back to my writing, and what I learned through this (again) life long project, was that I have learned a lot about myself, life and love. Mostly, I feel like I finally learned how to write. I’m very proud of myself in its completion and am excited to finally become a published author, even if it’s of my own making. When all else fails, just do it yourself!
