At the beginning of the twentieth century, the continent of Africa was a hotbed of international trade, colonialism, and political gamesmanship. So when World War I broke out, the European powers were forced to contend with each other not just in the bloody trenches - but in the treacherous jungle. And it was in that unforgiving land that General Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck would make history.

What are the ancient pathways that opened up the supernatural for the ancients like Moses, Elijah, and Solomon? What ancient wisdom did the wisest man in the world possess allowing him to be a king, inventor, writer, scientist, psalmist, businessman, and see the glory cloud first hand, as well as allowed Israel to even travel worldwide, including ancient America? Where are the geographical and seasonal portals that have been forgotten? How does one tap into resurrection power as Elijah, Elijah, Jesus, and others did?
