- How the Bible proves that Jesus Christ is God.
- Why the Resurrection of Jesus Christ proves that He is the only way to Heaven.
- Jesus fulfilled over 300 Old Testament prophecies concerning the coming of the Savior of the World. The Odds of any one person in all of human history fulfilling just 48 of those prophecies is 10 to the 168th power, that is a 10 with 168 zero’s behind it. Scientists say that the combined total number of Atoms in the entire Universe is 10 to the 66th power.
- Did you know that just using the Bible, we can determine the exact day that the creation of the world began?
- The Universe is so large in relation to actual physical matter that it contains, that it is like a building 20 miles long, 20 miles wide, and 20 miles tall, but contains only a single grain of sand.
- Proof that Jesus is not a created being, or angel, such as the Mormon doctrine that Jesus is a created being, the brother of Lucifer, or the Jehovah’s Witness doctrine that Jesus is the created brother of the Arch Angel Michael, but is the eternal Creator Himself who has always existed.
Chapter 2: “How Shall We Escape?”
Highlights of Chapter 2

Chapter 3: “While It Is Called Today”
Highlights of Chapter 3
- The overwhelming evidence in the Bible that God exists.
- Is the definition of “Holiness” sinless perfection or “Blameless standing?”
- The immenseness of the Created Universe is seen in the illustration that the earth resides inside one galaxy called “The Milky Way Galaxy, that is one of another 100 billion Galaxies with 100 billion stars of their own.
- The milky Way Galaxy is over 100,000 light years across. If we could travel at the speed of light (186 million miles per second), it would take us 100,000 years just to cross our own Galaxy.
- Another amazing fact of miscrosopic creation is that living on the skin of one single human being, there are more living organisms that there are human being on the surface of the earth.
- Jut in one square inch of your hand, you have over 9 feet of blood vessels, 600 pain sensors, 9,000 nerve endings, 36 heat sensors and 75 pressure sensors…you are “fearfully and wonderfully made!”
- How Bacteria proves that the universe was created and did not evolve.
- What true faithfulness is, as defined by the Bible.
- Did you know that it would take over two 100 car freight trains full of food, every sigle day, just to feed the 2.5 million children of Israel that were camped in the desert under Moses?
- It would take 750,000 quail every single day to feed this massive amount of people.
- It would take over 11 million gallons of water per day to quench the thirst and take care of the needs of 2.5 million people.
Chapter 4 “No More Excuses”
Highlights of Chapter 4:
- The 10 Commandments were not given by God as a set of rules for us to keep, they were given to show us that we could never keep them and thereby lead us to the conclusion that we needed a Savior.
- The standard that God requires is perfection, the Bible says that if any person is guilty of breaking even one of the 10 commandments, they are guilty of breaking them all. (James 2:10)
- When Jesus Lived, He lived a perfect life, perfectly keeping all of God’s law, when He died, He paid the penalty that all human beings owed for their failure to keep God’s law perfectly.
- When any person accepts Jesus sacrifice on the Cross as payment for their sins, then God appropriates to their account, a full pardon, and views them from that moment on as perfectly righteous, acceptable for heaven.
- It is not enough to simply say “I believe in Jesus”, a person must ask Him to forgive their sins and invite Him to come into their heart and live their Lord and Savior.
- This person must continue to live for Jesus and continue to “Abide in Him” for the rest of their life.
- It was NOT Jesus PLUS your performance that saves you.
- It is NOT Jesus AND your performance that Keeps you saved.
- It IS a TOTAL dependence upon Jesus and what He accomplished; as well as a constant abiding—in Him, that Saves us.
Chapter 5 “Jesus Learned Obedience by His Suffering”
Highlights of Chapter 5:
- In the Old Testament, the colors that the high priest wore on his garments, were a picture of what jesus has done for us.
- BLUE represented “Righteousness”.
- PURPLE represented “Royalty”.
- SCARLET represented “Sacrifice”.
- WHITE represented “Holiness and Purity”.
- When Israel lived in the desert for 40 years, they had to bring their sacrifice through just “One Door” at the entrance to the Tabernacle.
- Jesus said: “I am the Door, if anyone enter through me, he will be saved…”
- The entrance to this ONE door of the Tabernacle also had these 4 colors, Blue, Purple, Scarlet and White, signifying that we must all pass through Jesus Righteousness, Royalty, Sacrifice, and Holiness, if we are to enter into Heaven.
- Do you struggle to do the right things in your life?
- Do you have a hard time making the right decisions in your life?
- Does it seem as if you are always making wrong decisions?
- Jesus understands how much you struggle and that is why He came, “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but Jesus was also tempted in all the same points as we, yet He never sinned… Therefore Jesus lives now forever to interceded and pray for us…” (Hebrews 4:15)
Chapter 6 “Can I Fall Away From Jesus?”
Highlights of Chapter 6:
- If your outlook on the world is based upon the full counsel of God’s Word (All 66 Books of the Bible), then you will have a balanced understanding of how and why the world works the way that it does.
- If you have no knowledge of God’s Word or have only been taught “Topical Studies” with a few scriptures thrown in, then your understanding of the world will be very limited.
- Everything that we need to know in order to have a happy and fulfilled life, is found in the Bible.
- The primary purpose of the Church is to build up the members of the church by teaching and applying the Word of God. (Ephesians 4:11-13)
- According to the Bible, the only sin that is unforgivable by God, is to reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. All other sins were paid for by Jesus Sacrifice on the Cross.
Chapter 7 “Able to Save to the Uttermost”
Highlights of Chapter 7:
- Jesus sacrifice on the Cross is superior to all religions of the world because religion is the creation of man, Jesus was sent by God to be the only Savior of the World, and proved that claim by being the ONLY person to have risen from the dead, to never died again.
- Who is Melchizedek from the Old Testament? Is He Jesus before He took the permanent body of a man in the New Testament.
- The Book of Hebrews says that “Melchizedek was made like the Son of God”. The Greek word used here is “Aphomoimenos”, which means, “A facsimile, copy or model”.
- What was the real purpose of the Priest in the Old Testament?
- What was the real purpose of the sacrifices in the Old Testament?
- How did Jesus fulfill the role of the priest and the meaning of the sacrifice so that they are no longer necessary?
Chapter 8 “A Copy and Shadow of Heavenly Things”
Highlights of Chapter 8:
- On the day that Solomon dedicated the Temple, they offered up 22,000 Bulls and 120,000 Sheep.
Jesus became the ONE perfect sacrifice for all human sin, thereby ending the Old Testament Sacrificial system.
- When Jesus said from the Cross “It Is Finished”, the Aramaic word He used was Tetelestai”, which means, “your Debt has been Cancelled”.
- In Heaven we see that there is only ONE throne, how does that coexist along the teaching of the Bible that the Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God, and these three are ONE God?
- The stones that Lucifer had upon him before his fall were very similar to the stones that were upon the High priest in the Old Testament.
- The Temple in Jerusalem was only a copy of the actual Temple that is constructed in Heaven, but they are virtually identical.
- Everything that the priests did in the Old Testament, was a shadow of what Jesus would do when He came to earth.
- In Heaven, those who belong to Jesus by giving their lives to Him BEFORE the 7 year Tribulation begins, are seen as seated close to the throne of God, right next to the Cherubim. Those who are saved during the Great Tribulation are seen as seated in the outer court of the Temple.
- Every person who has lived upon the earth, has the forgiveness of all their sins, at the moment that Jesus died upon the Cross. This forgiveness is not appropriated to our account UNTIL we ask Jesus to forgive our sins; based upon His death and resurrection.
Chapter 9, Part 1 “A Tabernacle For You”
Highlights of Chapter 9, Part 1:
- Every part of the Tabernacle that Moses built in the desert, is a picture of what Jesus has done for us.
- The Tabernacle was constructed in the desert, every person who has lived on the earth, has been through their own “desert Experience” of their Trials.
- The “inner Court” of the Tabernacle represents Heaven.
- The “Holy of Holies” represents the Presence of God”.
- The “Outer Court” represents “Earth.
- Where was Jesus sacrifice made? On the earth, the same place that the priests took the animal for the sacrifice and offered it up on the altar.
- Where do we have fellowship with God, in Heaven. What is in the “Inner Court” of the Tabernacle?
- The Lamp stand: Jesus as the Light of the world, the Table f Showbread, Jesus is the Bread of Life,
- The Altar of Incense, Our prayer to Jesus are a sweet smelling Incense to Him.
- How many ways were there into the Tabernacle, the place of sacrifice? JUST ONE!
- How many ways did Jesus say there were into Heaven? JUST ONE, Thorough Him.
- This entire chapter comes with awesome full color photos and illustations of the Tabernacle and how every part of Jesus sacrifice was the fulfillment of the Old Testament Tabernacle.
Chapter 9, Part 2 “In The Process of Being Made Perfect”
Highlights of Chapter 9, Part 2:
- How did 2.5 Million people traveling through the desert in the Old Testament have enough daily supplies to take care of their Needs?
- It would take Two 100 car freight trains full of food every day.
- It would take Eighteen 100 car tanker trains with over 11 million gallons of water each day.
- It would take Four 100 car freight trains full of wood each day to supply the fuel to cook and warm themselves.
- When these 2.5 million people packed up and set off for their next destination, if they lines up 50 persons across, the entire line of 2.5 million people would stretch out for 40 miles.
Chapter 9, Part 3: “A Day in Your Courts”
Highlights of Chapter 9, Part 3:
- The covering of the Tabernacle in the desert has 4 unique coverings.
- Each one of these coverings, represented something that Jesus came to do for us.
- The outer covering was made of “Badger Skin”, it was not attractive, but it kept out the storms, the rain, and the wind. It was simple, plain, not very attractive.
- Isaiah said that there was no beauty in Jesus appearance that we should desire Him, because He was beaten so severely He was barely recognizable as a Man.
- But when Jesus covers us with His Sacrifice, we are sheltered from the storm of Gods judgement, for no judgment will come upon anyone who is in Jesus.
- The second covering under the Badger Skin, was the “Rams Skin”. They would stain this covering red, guess what the red illustrated: “Jesus Sacrifice”, he shedding of His blood.
- As you are inside the Tabernacle, you are literally “Covered” by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
- The Third Layer was made of woven “Goats Hair”. This represented the “Scapegoat” that was sent out from the Temple into the wilderness with the sins of the person who brought their sacrifice to the Temple.
- This signified that your sin had been sent away, it was not yours anylonger.
- The fourth an final cover that would be seen as you looked up, while inside the Tabernacle, was covered with angels.
- When John was taken up to Heaven in the 4th chapter of the Book of Revelation, He saw four living creatures next to the throne of God.
- Each one had four faces, the Face of a Man, the Face of an Ox, The face of and Eagle, and the Face of a Lion..
- The Man, represented the Gospel of LUke, the physicialn who give us a point of view of Jesus as a man, like all of us, one of us.
- The Ox, represented the Gospel of Mark, who presents Jesus as “the Servant” who came to lay His life down for all of us.
- The Eagle represents Jesus as God, the way that the Gospel of John presents Jesus to us.
- The Lion represented Jesus as the “Lion of the Tribe of Judah” the fulfillment of the coming of the Messiah to the Jews. Jesus came to be the KIng of the Jews.
Chapter 9, Part 4: “Where Jesus Lives”
Highlights of Chapter 9, Part 4:
- The Bible says that when Jesus was Crucified, that He “Descended Into the lower parts of the earth”.
- Did you ever wonder what Jesus was doing those three day while He was in the Lower parts of the earth?
- The book of 1 Peter chapter 3 says that when Jesus descended into Hell, he preaches to those spirits who were disobedient during the time of Noah and the flood, who none of, would believe the message of Noah a get into the Ark.
- How many people were alive on the earth during the time of Noah?
- Mathematicians have estimated that there could have been as many as 6 billion people on the earth during the time of Noah.
- Take a mother and father who have 4 children.
- The average age at marriage is 25.
- 4 children born by the age of 35.
- Average life span being 70 years.
- A generation lasting 35 years.
- After 5 generations, there would be 96 people from this first family of 4.
- After 10 generations, 3,070
- After 15 generations, 98,300
- After 20 generations, 3,150,000
- After 30 generations, 3,220,000,000
- After 31 generations, 6.5 Billion!
- If Jesus was the Only Way To Heaven, and Jesus did not come until 2,000 years ago, how were all the people of the Old Testament Saved? Exactly the same way you were saved.
- We LOOK BACK to the Cross and are saved. They LOOKED AHEAD to the Cross and were saved.
What did Jesus mean when He told the thief on the Cross next to Him that “Today you will be with me in Paradise”, when Jesus did not raise from the dead until 3 days later?
- When Jesus descended into the lower parts of the earth, there were 2 holding places for human souls.
- One a place of torment (Luke 16), the other a place of comfort, called “Paradise”, or Abraham’s Bosom.
- When Jesus ascended back to heaven on the third day He took with Him all those Old Testament believers and closed Paradise or Abraham’s Bosom forever.
- Today when a believer in Jesus dies, they are instantly in the presence of God in Heaven. No Ghost, no Spirit roaming the earth, No purgatory. THE BIBLE DOESNT TEACH THIS, these are traditions and superstitions of men.
Chapter 10; Part 1: “I Don’t Remember”
Highlights of Chapter 10, Part 1:
- The purpose of the 10 Commandments is to “Bring us to Jesus, to act as a Teacher, to inform us that we could never please God by truing to keep the law, because we are not capable of keeping the law.
- As we look at the 10 commandments, we should be honest and admit “I Can’t Do It”.
This would drive us to Jesus and compel us to ask Him to make us righteous by His death on the Cross.
- It is impossible to have fellowship with God, without first coming to Him through Jesus Christ (This is what the Bible Says)
- Do the memory of your past sins haunt you?
- Do you spend time feeling condemned for your past mistakes?
- Romans 8 says; “There is therefor now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus…”
Chapter 10, Part 2: “You Have Need of Endurance”
Highlights of Chapter 10, Part 2:
- Common statements that people say about church:
“I am not being fed at that church, my needs are not being met.”
“I can’t receive from that pastor”
“I am not being ministered to”
“I don’t like the way that the pastor or leadership runs that church”
“I need to feel like I am a part of that church”
- Did you see the common theme in all of those comments? “I, and Me”
- Jesus taught by example that the one who would follow Him are servants, not those who are served. The purpose of church is not to have your needs met, but to come and try and meet the needs of other who are there.
- Every person who is a part of Jesus church is “A Minster” not just the pastor or associate pastors.
You can come into church and have a heavy burden on your heart, but when you forget about yourself and begin to seek to minster to someone else who might be there in need, you will find that by the time that you leave, your burden also will be lifted.
Chapter 11, Part 1 “Believing in the Invisible”
Highlights of Chapter 11, Part 1:
- In Hebrews chapter 11, are listed the “halls of Faith”, those who the Bible holds up as great men and women of faith.
- The problem is that most of them were: Liars, Manipulators, selfish, and had great lapses in their faith/
- What we discover is that what made them great people of faith is that they never gave up, they continued on with the Lord throughour their life.
- All of us get frustrated, have moments of doubts and fears, we sin and fall, but if we get back up and continue to follow Jesus, we are seen as “People of Great Faith”.
Chapter 11, Part 2: “Faith That Soars”
Highlights of Chapter 11, part 2:
- The definition of what real faith is.
- How we can limit what the Lord can do in our life, by not trusting Him.
- How could Noah keep building a huge boat in the middle of nowhere, speaking of the fact that it was going to rain and flood the earth, when it had never rained before, and do this every day for 100 years?
- How could the earth be completely flooded with water from just rain in 40 days?
- How could Abraham be called “the Father of Faith” when he lied to the king of Egypt because he was afraid that the king would kill him to get his wife Sarah?
- Abraham took his only son to sacrifice him on the very same mountain that Jesus would be taken to be made a sacrifice for us.
- If we go to our Bible and look up the first place where the word “Love” is mentioned, we find that it was when Abraham took his only son up on the mountain and offered him as a sacrifice.
- Isn’t that interesting! That the first place where love is seen in the Bible is where a father who loves his only son, takes him up a mountain to offer him as a sacrifice, believing that if he should die, that God would resurrect him from the dead, AMAZING!
Chapter 11, part 3; “The Prophecy of Jacob’s Sons”
Highlights of Chapter 11, Part 3:
- The main purpose of prophecy in the Bible, is to prove that what God said in the Bible is true and that it was the God of the Universe who said it.
- The test of a true prophet in the Bible was whether of not 100 percent of his predictions would come true or not. If he missed in his prediction, even in the smallest detail, he was called “A False Prophet”, who was not sent by God.
- Amazingly, over 3,000 of the 3,500 predictions of the Bible, have come true exactly as the Bible predicted. There is no other book, religious or secular that can support that claim.
- When Jacob was dying, he brought each of his 12 sons before himself and pronounced a prophetic word upon them. Each tiny detail of what Jacob said has come to pass, how did he do it?
- The Book of Daniel, chapter 9, gives us the exact day that Jesus would come to the earth as the Messiah.
- Daniel said that on the date that A command is given to allow Israel to return from their captivity in Babylon, to Israel, there will be 173,880 days till the Messiah will come.
- On april 6, 32 a.d. Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the foal of a donkey and proclaimed to the world that He was the Messiah.
- This was on the exact day that Daniel had said it would happen!
Chapter 11, Part 4: “The Word of Faith”
Highlights of Chapter 11, Part 4:
- It has been said that “Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it”
- Moses spent his first 40 years learning how to be the most powerful man in the world.
- He spent the next 40 years learning how to be the lowest person in the world.
- It was his last 40 years that he became someone that the Lord could really use.
- When Moses took the 2.5 million children of Israel to the edge of the red sea: they has a 4,00 foot deep ocean in front of them, a 9,000 foot mountain range beside them, and the entire Egyptian army behind them, blocking the only exit.
- Then the Lord told them “Stand Still and See the Salvation f the Lord”.
- You want the Lord to really work in your life in those impossible circumstances, “Just Stand Still” and don’t do anything, that is when the Lord works.
- When the Lord found Gideon he was scared and hiding in a cave, yet with just 300 men, the Lord used Gideon to destroy 135,000 Midianites.
- We were created for God’s pleasure. When we are living our life to please the Lord, then we find that we are satisfied and fulfilled, ourselves.
- The most miserable and unfulfilled people in the world are those who are living for only themselves.
