Isaiah 40:28… Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding.
Romans 16:25… Now to Him who has the power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, but now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the Everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith.
Revelation 15:2… And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are Thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are Thy ways, You are the King of Saints.
I have been studying diligently the ‘many infallible proofs‘ of the Christian faith [please see my last post], and have been challenged to continue to do what the Holy Spirit commands via His servant Paul:
2 Timothy 2:15… Study to show thyself approved unto God, a worker who need not be ashamed- rightly dividing the word of truth.
There is a sadly pervasive reality in the church- Christians who cannot answer very basic questions concerning primary doctrine, and have no credible response to those who are seeking to answer the hard questions of this life and existence. While the world scoffs at Christians as empty-headed, intolerant, etc… the lost are entering Eternity in massive numbers daily with no saving faith, and are therefore eternally doomed!
The Lord has been faithful to answer my many prayers for additional resources that would systematically and comprehensively confirm the evidences of true Biblical Christianity. He far and away exceeded my expectations in providing two outstanding reference books and websites that are expansive in their respective treatments of the Living Word of God that we are privileged to partake of: the Holy Bible.
I will be referencing these works as well as others in future posts. Over the past several decades I have compiled a library of outstanding Christian resources, classics of the faith both very old and new. But I must emphasize that these two resources that I am showcasing at this point in time are the very best that I have ever come across!
The first is titled Prepared to Answer by Rob van de Weghe. His ministry website is windmillministries.org.
By using the link above the bookcover photo you will be able to view links to the sections that this singularly outstanding 448 page book delves into. He deals in stunning detail with these questions:
- Does God exist?
- Can we trust the Bible?
- Is Jesus God?
- Is the Bible inspired by God?
- What do others believe?
I went through this text twice highlighting all the remarkable evidences that our Brother Rob has carefully (and with great humility) developed. This man was an unbeliever with a scientific (rationalistic evolutionist) background. He had a long and highly successful international business career in information sciences, retired at a young age- and through unforeseen circumstances was led by God to first challenge and then skillfully defend the Biblical Christian faith.
The first section of 81 pages presents contemporary scientific evidence in many broad disciplines such as astro-biology, cutting edge genetics research, astronomy, physics, etc.- which lead to the truly logical conclusion that there is abundant evidence for Intelligent Design- and therefore a Creator, who is outside of time and space and this physical universe of His creation. The book develops evidence page by page, chapter by chapter with historical proofs from archeology, history, and other verifiable disciplines that I firmly believe make a most airtight case for the truth of our precious faith.
The last section covers other prominent world religions and carefully shows how they have very little substance that is not self-contradictory or vague when compared to the Scriptures. The books of the Bible span over 1500 years (prior to the time of the Lord Jesus’ first advent) and 40 different writers who, as the Scriptures clearly says- were all lead by the Holy Spirit to write what the Trinity intended to be a living record of God’s love for all mankind. Every single human being has also been blessed with free will, and therefore must decide individually to accept or reject God’s gift of eternal life through the finished work of Christ on the cross… with sobering eternal consequences.
Rob van de Weghe’s website also has other remarkable resources including several DVD’s that are outstanding in presenting the science behind Intelligent Design, which thoroughly refutes Darwinian evolution as bankrupt pseudo-science. Consider purchasing the 3 in 1 set that is listed on his Books/DVD Store… I did and I have enjoyed each one numerous times! They are truly comprehensive in grounding us all in the firm reality of our wonderful Creator God… Praise His Holy Name!
The second reference book is one that has shaken me to the core of my being! I have studied the Bible Codes, the five fold ministry, eschatology, prophetic/apostolic teaching, present truth, apologetics, biographies of many outstanding saints in the history of the church age… but I have never come across something this deep, profound, and seamlessly elegant as… The Bible Wheel!
Written by Richard Amiel McGough with insightful help from his wife Rose… this book has brought tears to my eyes numerous times. I get goosebumps just pondering how magnificent this fresh revelation is in confirmation of the inerrancy of Scripture in our Holy Bible! Please go to BibleWheel.com and invest in your future illumination into the deep things of God in His unfathomable Holy Word!
These two wonderful Christians in their love of the Lord and His Word came upon a startling discovery: The Bible is composed of 66 books; 39 Old Testament books- with 27 in the New Testament. The Hebrew language [which the Bible itself says is ‘perfect’] consists of 22 letters. Brother Richard thought of the 66 books being a multiple of 22 x3 and without going into too much detail- since a circle is a preeminent image of perfection and a type that points to God… they decided to see what would manifest if the Hebrew alphabet and the OT/NT books were laid out in a circular format such as this:
Even as I am writing this I am getting emotional! Please see the color image on the bookcover- the different colors on the wheel represent the seven-fold symmetrical perfection of the Bible, the representation of which- he named The Canon Wheel.
What Brother Richard has been privileged to receive from the Holy Spirit, with over 15 years of very detailed study-is that in each of the 22 spokes of the wheel… the Hebrew alphabet and the books listed in each spoke in their respective three cycles have profound relationship to each other!!! One example: The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Aleph which also has the numerical value of 1 or 1st (first). In this first spoke you find the book of Genesis– the 1st book of the Torah; then you have Isaiah which is the 1st book of the Major Prophets; and in the third cycle- the book of Romans which is the 1st book of the New Testament Epistles! Coincidence- NO! For in examining the three related books in this and each of the other 21 spokes- there are many profound correlations of thematic and doctrinal truths. What unfolds page upon page will startle, amaze, and give you a deeper love for our ABBA Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the precious indwelling Holy Spirit that will truly revolutionize your daily walk… mark my words!
Another example that I must include here: YHVH GOD declared that He is the Alpha & the Omega, the Aleph & the Tav, the beginning and the end… and yet in the entire Bible- these declarations appear only in Isaiah (first spoke) and in the book of Revelation (last spoke)! Clearly this is by Divine Design. Also the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet- the Tav was originally a ‘T‘ fully in the shape of the Cross– which signifies that the Hebrew language and the corresponding revelation of YHVH GOD in the Holy Bible is sealed with the Cross of Christ, our Sublime Saviour, GOD, and King!
I have taken the liberty of adding these images to this posts which are all proprietary images of this remarkably original work– in the hope that I can spark your curiosity and interest in this truly life-changing book. I cannot encourage you enough to go to the website and purchase this hardcover 412 page volume that is beautifully put together, written in an anointed manner with deep love for the Lord and His Word.
Please invest in yourself, your family, your church, your community… purchase The Bible Wheel by going to Brother Richard’s expansive website: BibleWheel.com.
Both of these reference books will help transform your testimony for our Lord, and will assist you in studying the Living Word in His Living Word. May God continue to bless you in your daily study, in your Christian walk, and in the fulfillment of your destiny in the Body of Christ and His Advancing Kingdom, soon to be on earth as it is in Heaven…
And PLEASE don’t leave them with just your words- give them the Incorruptible, Eternal & Holy Word of Scripture that the Holy Spirit WILL use to penetrate their hearts, to the Glory of GOD the Father, in Jesus’ Name:
