The Bible’s Greatest Prophecies Unlocked! A Voice Cries Out—CHAPTER ONE – WHY PROPHECY!

BY DAVID C. PACK

Any study of prophecy begins with the simple definition of what prophecy is. Most lack an understanding of even this most basic knowledge. Bible prophecy is “the inspired, divine revelation or foretelling of historical events, written in advance of those events, pertaining to the unfolding of God’s Plan for mankind.” A shorter definition is simply “foretelling the future.”

Prophecy is factual history recorded in advance! God foretells major events before they happen. He wants His servants to know what the future holds—what lies ahead for the world. The Bible is approximately 750,000 words. This means that 250,000 words are devoted to prophecy. Over 80 percent is yet to be fulfilled. Therefore, many major events must yet come to pass. (more…)


Where Is the True Church? and Its Incredible History! Ch 1 WHERE IS GOD’S CHURCH TODAY?

BY DAVID C. PACK

In one of the most powerful, dramatic and profoundly important statements in the Bible, Jesus Christ declared, “I will build My Church” (Matt. 16:18). He did not say “churches,” “fellowships,” “sects,” “denominations” or “communities of believers.” No matter how men try to place an interpretation on it, this passage speaks of a single Church—of one, undivided organization! Jesus continued, “and the gates of hell [the grave] shall not prevail against it.” He promised that His Church could never be destroyed. (more…)


The Magical Message According to IÔANNÊS (St. John the Divine)

Commonly called the Gospel according to St. John. Are you ready for the esoteric message of the Gospel never before so clearly revealed? Contents: The Seen and the Unseen; The Four Evangels; The Drama of the Soul; Explanatory Note; The Magical Message according to Ioannes; The Prodigal Son; The Birth from Above; Index. St. John the mystic, calls to you. Listen to this inspiring message of faith, hope, love, and mystical achievement.That the teaching of Iêsous was largely allegorical is clearly apparent from the subject matter of the four Evangels, as well as from such express statements as that in Matthew xiii. 34: ” ALL these things Iêsous spoke to the people in parables, and without a parable he did not speak [anything] to them.” That the teaching had an inner and concealed meaning, divulged only to the few who were worthy to receive it, is evident from many passages in the New Testament; and it was so held by all the early Christian sects, and plainly admitted by the patristic writers. But, in addition to this allegorical teaching, certain rules of right-conduct are given, which constitute, not a mere arbitrary code of ethics, but one based upon the laws of man’s inner nature, his relation to Deity, to Nature, and to his fellow-beings. It is only by living according to these rules of right-conduct that the will of the man comes into harmony with the will of The God ; and in Iôannês (vii. 17) the final test is laid down : ” If any one wills to do his will, he shall have knowledge about the teaching, whether it is from The God.”  (more…)

Teachings of Jesus

Compiled by Timothy Conway, Ph.D.

On this page, let us explore the teachings ascribed to Jesus. Some of these teachings are no doubt much earlier and much more authentically from Jesus/Yeshua than other words that were attributed to him by later persons with a certain religious-political agenda. (For instance, note the clearly inauthentic, long-winded diatribes against the Pharisee Jews put into Jesus’ mouth in the Gospel of Matthew—when Jesus was himself a Pharisee Jew, not an Essene, Zealot, or Sadducee Jew.) For these teachings from rabbi Jesus we draw on the six best sources in our possession today—the reconstructed “Q-text,” the crucially important Gospel of Thomas, as well as the well-known synoptic textsGospel of MarkGospel of Luke, and Gospel of Matthew, and, finally, the well-known yet enigmatic Gospel of John.
