Re: Cultural Relevance and Revolutionary Approach Required (Jesus is a Revolutionary)
On the question of cultural relevance: A friend and his wife sent their daughter to JUCO (not the Ivy League, mind you) here in Kansas and she came home refusing to further attend church and stating, “The Bible is just a book.” This unfavorable spiritual transformation coming at age 18 after being raised in the church of Nazarene, her parents in service as committed lay persons in the church. Admit this disappointing result of education, as well the production of Dr. Bart D. Ehrman (a seminary creation), and the fact that minus “born again of the Spirit” providing ability to see the kingdom of God, the Bible is not even a particularly good book. The Bible is hard to understand even for believers, requiring years to get the Gestalt, Mystery of Christ, by grace through faith, with most, even among serious students and seminary professors, never coming to clear understanding, also even in pulpits, as the divisive church of our day reveals.
Dr. Bart D. Ehrman, Dr. Richard Dawkins, Hitchens and Carrier, as examples have capitalized on the difficulty in understanding to the tune of 20,000,000 plus books sold (Ehrman) no doubt with his colleagues including his subjectivity and the obfuscation in his writings within their curriculum, convincing masses of millennials and others: 1) “the Bible is not inspired”; and, 2) Jesus a “failed apocalyptic prophet” among their other ignorant ideas in service to the lying, stealing, killing and destroying enemy, as Jesus stated.
This writer cringes when he witnesses the apologists of our day argue the one nebulous side against the other, in kind, and in the vein of the world’s argument. But God himself states his objective evidence boasting about it in Isaiah 46: 8-13: “I am God … I tell the end from the beginning from ancient times what is still to come.” Has he? The angel told Daniel speaking in Daniel 12: 3, 4: “Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” (See: Dan. 12: 9, 10 also). A mechanical engineer (BSME) shining as the Lord prophesied here, has become wise through the Spirit of truth and has organized the Lord’s boast and simple math into the Objective Evidence that it is, in two books, to date, the Lord ridiculing these Ivy League circus clowns as he reveals them to be, as the author also, with the Lord’s precise prophetic record, in simpleton math from antiquity to date. The Lord wants his glory; this servant wants him to have it
Peter told us: “We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” (NIV) (II Peter 1: 19-21) IGNORED BY MOST IN LEADERSHIP!
Another angel tells John in Revelation 19: 10: “At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For it is the Spirit of prophecy who bears testimony to Jesus.”
Testimony Lord? REALLY? Jesus prophesied to Nicodemus in John 3: “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
Jesus also spoke of Daniel’s prophesy in Matthew 24: 15: “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”
Daniel 12: 11-13 gives us a word problem: “… daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up [ “IT” Not a He], there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.”
Revelation chapter 11 restates the identical problem. Revelation 11: 1, 2: “I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.”
Daniel stated it first, Jesus pointed to it telling you what and where this abomination would be set up, then 60 or so years later John states it in Revelation.
Here’s the math, from Daniel 12: 11-13:
360/365.24 =.98563 (conversion to solar years)
.9856 x 1,290 = 1,271 solar years and the sacrifice abolished in 583 B.C.
1,271- 583 = 688.5 A.D.
From Revelation :
42 months of 30.44. days = 1,278.5 (solar years)
1967-1,278.5 = 688.5 A.D. (Again)
What is this that Jesus said, would be set up, (idols are set up, not persons) and from which “Those in Jerusalem would need to flee from, standing in the holy place where it does not belong” (Matthew 24, paraphrased) per God’s own accurate words, since 688 A.D.? On the temple mount, sits the dome of the rock as the prophets said, including Jesus and it being set up precisely on the timeline of history per God’s simple math hidden until the time of the end, just as the angel told Daniel and another John. One more math problem 1948-1260 (Revelation 11: 3) = 688 A.D. Math triangulated from three directions aligning perfectly with Jesus’ words in Matthew 24. Objective evidence that proves conclusively God wrote the Bible, and Jesus perfectly predicted the dome of the rock, also telling Jews and Christians to flee, a set of facts, here, which Ehrman, Dawkins and Carrier cannot answer.
These mathematical proofs and 9 others in my first two books Misquoting Logic What Bart Ehrman Forgot To Tell You About The Coming Apocalypse And Your Place In It by Chris Queen 2017 © published by Booklocker.com and Misquoting Calculus What Isaac Newton Tried To Tell Bart Ehrman by Chris Queen ©2018 traditionally published, Abuzz Press. These will soon be joined right next to Ehrman’s books, on Amazon, by Quoting Jesus What The Son Of God Told Bart Ehrman by Chris Queen, an E book only of some 55-60 pages laying out Jesus’ precise pin point accuracy from (Matthew 24), (Daniel 12) and (Revelation 11). Salt and Light. It’s a revolution. Bible prophesy itself, ignored by most leaders in their disobedience (oh yes it is) in not “paying attention to the prophetic record” (as instructed by Pater), will win the day in the many cases to preserve the young, walking with the Lord giving powerful confirmation for their continued personal belief and provide them tools (weapons of the Spirit) to fight the good fight of faith with confidence and assurance of the truth and win it, bringing glory to God.
The reason for the author’s interest in God’s prophetic record and God’s math, and the writing of these books was a young family member becoming the disciple of Ehrman, Dawkins, Hitchens and Carrier etc., through his own endeavor as a doctoral candidate in Philosophy of Religion and soon to be (another on the way) eleven grandchildren with need for inoculation from their uncle’s folly. Would that David and Joyce’s daughter had a book like these to read, so she would not believe the Bible is just a book, as Uncle Landon, also, so they would not now be in faithless position. The ultimate satisfaction would be for Ehrman himself to return, as he no doubt eventually will here at the “end of days” (Romans 11: 29) so we need pray his words fall from his mouth hollow, that this hollowness adds to the void he experiences more and more, that the call and gift of the Lord must bring him as witness to the eternal life by the Spirit of the Lord to the 20,000,000 plus he has led astray. Revelation 19: 10.
Yours in faith, a talking donkey,

P.S. To reiterate I am looking for assistance in increasing the profile of the books, filled with God’s truth and the gospel in his own words, toward preserving the faith of those who already believe which is the stated purpose (strengthen the body of Christ) of gifts, distributed as the Spirit determines. The Lord might use a mechanical engineer to reveal his math, right(?) and this author believes the Lord carefully groomed him for this very purpose. Any press and reviews (on Amazon) for these astonishing revelations of God in this author’s books will preserve and strengthen faltering faith and arm those wise, for battle in the Spirit of truth. Thank You!
