As this book has come into your possession and you are beginning to read, a very rewarding exchange is being offered to you. In exchange for a small amount of your time, you can take a major journey directly into the greatest truths of all time. You will be quickly guided through history, scripture and fulfilled prophecy as the truth unfolds. Your destination will be the discovery of who Jesus Christ was and now is.
If you are Jewish, you are aware of the special Covenant God has with you. You have long awaited the coming of the Messiah. This new look at Jesus is not to convert you, but to look again at the promises of that Covenant and the Messiah. There is no need to change cultures in order to believe in His Son as the Messiah. Millions of Jews have found their completion in Jesus in record numbers, especially since the re-gathering of Israel in 1948.
Those of us who were not born Jewish realize without the Jewish contribution to Christianity, there is no Christianity. We owe you a deep debt of gratitude for making the way for us to reconnect with God. At the risk of severely understating its gravity, we acknowledge that the atrocities and persecution you have endured demand a profound apology which we humbly offer here. More and more "enlightened Christians" have stood with the Jews especially with the outpouring of revelation during the past 100 years. God said of the Jewish people, "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you."
If you are Muslim, this journey will hopefully intrigue, inform and entice you to a deeper search into the Messiah. A personal relationship with Creator God is possible through understanding Him as the God of love. "Greater love hath no man than he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). Follow the scriptures herein and see God 's move through history as His Son came to lay down that life for you.
The word Son is most often mistranslated in English from the original languages. God does not have a son as we humans consider the word. Jesus is the Word of God. God the Father needs a human body with which to convey His words of love to us mere humans. Therefore, He became a man, God incarnate, the very Word of God in human flesh, capable of relating to us, His creation.
If you are not religious at all, perhaps even an atheist, but are simply seeking truth, these pages have the potential to introduce you to the very Person whose name is Truth. You need to simply be honest with God, be real with Him. Tell Him exactly how you feel about Him, about religion, about yourself. Tell Him if you don 't even believe He exists. When you sow the truth, you will reap the Truth!
Whether you are Jewish or Muslim, other faith, or just an honest person of "good will," the irrefutable revelations simply presented herein will reward you for taking this journey. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
As for me, the author, these truths, the prophecies and the resulting relationship with Jesus, radically changed and transformed my life in 1979. The power of God struck me, set me free from internal and external bondages, and totally changed me from a failure to a person who is enjoying "Abundant Life" through the power of God working within me.
There are all sorts of intellectual arguments about philosophy and religion. We are not engaging in those. We offer you the testimony of a radically changed life together with amazing Bible prophecies, both of which are beyond argument.
As you view this book, you will find that a great majority of the prophecies that we show have to do with those which were fulfilled by Jesus. We urge you to not take a shortcut through these, even though it may seem that they are voluminous. The fact is that a great majority of all Bible prophecies have indeed been those which were fulfilled by Jesus. Jesus said, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). For centuries, God had ordained the prophets to speak of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus' life was to fulfill these prophecies, and in doing so, He gave us the gift of eternal life. That is why we focus so much on those prophecies having to do with His life and how they were fulfilled.
I want to thank my precious wife Carol, and our dear friends and ISOB Ministry Board Members Evelyn Akin, Bruce Tucker and Paul Smith, for their help and encouragement in doing this book. They not only proof read, but also encouraged me to actually create this book. It was originally written in 2000, but the Holy Spirit had me wait until 2006 to move forward with it.
