Revelation 13:18 is the verse that ties everything together. This challenge to us to be wise got me counting. This biblical timeline involves a lot of counting. It is only addition and calendars. Learn the calendars. Build the biblical calendars, and the Gregorian calendar, and the Julian calendar. Make your own calendar comparison. Count the kings. Compare the calendar of creation with the calendar at Jesus’ death, and the calendar in 70 ad (they are all the same biblical calendar). Convert the dates from history to biblical dates. Build your own timeline. Learn the 70 weeks prophecy. Know when Christ was born, and when he died. Count and find the patterns which repeat throughout history.
These verses and others like them have inspired me to get wisdom with all the getting, because it can save you. Of course, my math background led me to start counting, as the book of Revelation instructs. I also prayed to God to give me wisdom and understanding. I started counting the years from creation. I began this timeline because the bible is full of dates, and I wanted to know exactly when these dates occurred. Anytime the bible says “here is wisdom,” I try to understand that verse. The verse in Revelation 13:18 inspired me to count everything. One of the counts I began to work on is the number of years since creation. My father told me that he believed a man can count the years since creation using the bible. It is a lot of work, but if one can commit to it, that person can obtain faith without measure, and salvation. I have included the scripture used for each entry in the count. Please try to do the work yourself. Use my count to assist you, but make the work your own.
I would also like to summarize the wisdom which I have obtained while doing this work. Obviously, I figured out what year creation occurred. I added up the years from creation to the end. I figured out the 70 weeks prophecy from Daniel, which also gave me the date of Christ’s birth. I figured out the biblical calendar, the priestly courses, and the jubilees. I know the biblical calendar has only seven unique calendars, which repeat themselves perpetually. I created the calendar comparison, which puts the Gregorian, Julian and biblical calendars side by side. From this comparison we can convert a biblical date to the Gregorian or Julian dates, or vice versa. Also, I have counted the number of the beast. I know this is finally the wisdom the bible speaks of. I found that there are 666 Mosaic Laws. I have determined when the 1000 year reign of Christ with Israel began and ended. I have also determined when Satan and the false prophet were bound and loosed in and from the bottomless pit. I figured out who Nero truly was, and when his true birth and death happened. I have also figured out when the tribulation occurred. I know the date of creation. I know who the Holy Ghost is. I know where the garden of Eden was located. I know who the ten kings of Rome were.
I think I have tapped into the wisdom of God. I have asked for it in prayer many times. Maybe he answered my prayer. I have seen men try to fit prophecies into calendars which have 365 or 366 days, which cannot work. My biblical calendars fit perfectly with prophecy.
A man asked me “Why are you the first to know these things?” I answered that maybe I was not the first. Maybe others who have learned these things were stopped by nay-sayers. But, there is always a first. Computers have made a work like this easier to accomplish, and computers have not been around for long. I know that all this cannot be accepted overnight. It took twenty years for me to learn these things. I know the first instinct is to reject new ideas, but I only advise that you figure these things out for yourself. Make sure you do not reject truth. Give it time. Realize it as slowly as you need to. The amount of truth you absorb in this life has a direct affect on how much of you is left after the fire burns away the chaff in your heart. Fill your heart with truth, which most of the time is in direct contradiction with the world. That is a big indicator of truth. The world will hate you, as it hated Jesus. Good luck.
There is only one thing which God holds above faith, and even though one may have faith without this, without it the faith counts for nothing. That other thing is charity. Charity is actually kindness to others. Be good to people, even your enemies. In this book I have shown a step-by-step way to obtain unmeasurable faith, much wisdom, and knowledge. Charity is a decision that we all make. We need both faith and charity to enter heaven. It has to be practiced. Much of the time we tend to reject people who ask any kindness of us, especially an enemy. Be kind.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13
Practice charity. The book of Galatians teaches us how to walk in the Spirit. We can maximize our charity by keeping these attributes in mind. Even when we do not feel like it, we must walk in the Spirit.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
These attributes will cause one to have charity. Walk in the Spirit. These are Christ-like. Of course there is an opposite to walking in the Spirit. This next quote tells us the bad way to go.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21
Looking at this from the other side; avoid these evil attributes. We all sin. All these evil attributes make a person less charitable. Know yourself. Do not allow yourself to think you are good, even Jesus said he was not good. Ask for forgiveness for your shortcomings. Be humble, and get faith, wisdom, and knowledge with all the getting. This book can help you find faith, but you have to find charity within. The act of charity in the end is not enough, we have to desire to be charitable, and be offended by the lusts of the flesh. Our charity should never be a show for men, it should be in our heart. God is the only one who can know our hearts.
Faith, hope, and charity.
