Bible Studies.

.

The main concepts of Christianity - compacted into 65 well comprehensible booklets. 

The vast majority of the Bible studies coincide with traditional theology, but you will find a handful of extraordinary studies that first seem foreign to our eyes - revealing upon a closer look a perfect harmony with Scripture. The study on Christ's Death & Resurrection finally brings an end to a number of theological misunderstandings of the last centuries. The absolute proof of the Septuagint over Masoretic texts sets the stage for the corrected Flood Chronology, also confirming the length of an original calendar year, while the Genealogies with the uncorrupted begetting ages clearly confirm a young humanity. Other remarkable studies include the scriptural proof of 24-Hour Creation Days, the Garden of Eden with its now undoubtedly identified location, the true Weekly Sabbath ignoring an erroneous tradition, the study on End Times including the regularly neglected 'Thunder Judgments' from Rev 10:4, the definition of Spiritual Self-Sufficiency / Age of Accountability of 20 years, and the often overlooked differentiations between Present Salvation -and- Future Salvation and between Works of Law and- Works of Faith. The awareness of those biblical differentiations can end many unhealthy divisions in the body of Christ, reconsidering also topics such as the widespread theology of Baptism being optional for entering the Eternal Kingdom and the Once-Saved-Always-Saved theology.

T he  Bible

(1) Learn more about the Word of God through a carefully prepared Bible Presentation. (2) Going deeper, I compared the Septuagint Bible which Jesus Christ read and quoted from with our traditional Masoretic texts, (3) compared what historians and scholars stated about the Biblical Canon and (4) added a basic orientation about Non-Canonical Writings, debunking books such as Enoch and Jubilees.

Christ - Passover Chronology

Traditional interpretations of the timeline of Jesus' Death and Resurrection contradict the Bible usually in multiple points, as every Bible teacher is well aware of. The following study now presents a timeline with a -perfect- harmonization of the 4 Gospel accounts.

The study proves in every biblical context that Jesus died only 6 days after His arrest on the sixth day of Passover and rested on the seventh day.

Christ did also not die before Passover and the Bible does not indicate at any point a fast-track trial of less than half a day, passing through 5-6 authorities between midnight and ~7am. He did not lay 2 nights in the tomb as often claimed, but undoubtedly 3 nights. Leave behind what you have learned in the past and discover the biblical truth.

    Church

    The meaning of the word "Church" has been stretched. What does it mean in the biblical context and how does this term and its function relate to The Tabernacle, The House of the Lord, Temples and Temple Courts and is similar to Synagogues?

    T he  Creation

    Learn more about how God designed the whole universe and how He perfectly prepared and adjusted everything for the arrival of His image - humans. The study includes the definition and explanation of the biblical calendar - how the a biblical New Year consisting of 360 days and 12 months starts with the New Moon (First Crescent) and how the weeks evolve -independently from the New Moon- around the Weekly Sabbath, by counting the days after / towards the Sabbath.

    The first Adam was glorious, but he fell - even beyond righteousness. The second Adam did not come in glory, but will return in glory, and enabled humanity to enter into His glory.

    The  Land  and  Garden  of  Eden

    One of the biggest mysteries of humanity - for both believers and unbelievers. After manually plotting tens of thousands of kms of waterways and comparing several plausible locations in every biblical and geographical detail, I humbly and confidently claim the mystery to be solved. The most important hint is the water source - not being a river "that flowed out from Eden", but more accurately translated with 'that came up out of Eden'. Topography changed through the flood, but not enough to erase decisive leads.

    You will also discover through the map and the study, that God most probably chose the same location for the landing of Noah's ark, meaning that the 'second creation' initiated where once the first creation began.

    End  Times - Eschatology

    A detailed summary of all future events in their biblical order, as described in the book of Revelation and in 29 other books of the Bible. Including the precise chronology of the Restoration of Israel, and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ within the regularly neglected Thunder Judgments (Rev 10:1-11). With a clear differentiation between events happening in the heavenly realm and / or the our physical world, also showing the parallelism of the 3 (4) judgment series and the increase in intensity between those. A study that does not water down the wrath of Christ who will indeed stomp the winepress, which points out the events that have to precede the tribulation and how end time-believers will experience the first series of the tribulation.

    .

    What are common misinterpretations of the book of Daniel and why are 99% of the book not related to our end times?

    T he Flood

    The second greatest event in human history - after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Analysed, questioned, taken apart - though modern science is confirming more and more that the biblical account is 100% true. The study includes a list with astonishing extra-biblical proofs of the flood. 

    The chronology is probably exclusive - by including a comparison of the Septuagint and erroneous Masoretic dates - not only confirming the precise length of a former calendar year, but also indirectly proving the earlier creation date of 5508 (5554 BC). A truly significant study.

    Genealogies

    The Bible contains several genealogies with surprising details, but how do those genealogies fit together and also perfectly prove what the Bible teaches us about a relatively young creation? How do the Masoretic and other texts compare to the Septuagint? 

    If you are unfamiliar with the proven manipulation of most of our modern-day Bibles in regards to the Genealogies, and with the Septuagint Bible Jesus read and usually quoted from, then you should read the study 'Septuagint vs. Masoretic' first. Most timeline-related studies of this ministry will not make sense to you without this essential knowledge.

    No, Shem did not outlive Terah (8th generation after him), nor meet Abraham (9th generation), nor meet his great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandson Jacob (11th generation). The Masoretic texts had been unquestionably and stuporously manipulated.

    The Bible rather points out the very rare cases a father outlived his son. In all the genealogies, only Methuselah and Eber outlived their sons by 29 / 31 years (2 out of 77 generations). It is therefore unsettling to assume that suddenly 5 generations outlived their descendents of the 8th to 11th generation!  

    God  Speaks

    How does God 'speak' to us today? Learn in this extraordinarily complete study about the principle ways God communicates with us, but also in which ways He will never relate to us (in our time on earth).

    L aws  of  God

    Learn about the differentiation of laws in the Bible - the laws that are valid for every Christian today (10 Moral Laws & dozens of Laws of Christ) and those laws that once had been given to the nation of Israel (~610 Old Covenant / Ceremonial Laws) or had been added by some overzealous teachers (~1500 Oral / Fence Laws). 

    ·  The Moral Law was given more than 4 000 years before Mt. Sinai (Commandments #1-3 - violated in Gen 35:1-4 and Exo 10:16 ; #4-Sabbath - Exo 16:28; #5-Parents - Gen 9:25; #6-Murder - Gen 4:13 and Gen 34:27; #7-Adultery - Gen 39:9; #8-Theft - Gen 3:6 and Gen 34:27; #9-Lie - Gen 4:9 and Gen 20:2; #10-Greed Gen 3:6), is eternal and is even written on our hearts (Heb 8:10).

    ·  The Ceremonial Law was valid during less than 20% of human history (1478 years from the Exodus until Golgatha). Jesus abolished those 610 laws written on paper, regularly despised the 1500 laws spoken orally and affirmed the 10 commandments engraved in stone. Jesus is also our rock and the cornerstone. Stone is of eternal quality, while paper and words are temporal.

    ·  The 2 Great Commandments summarized (Rom 13:8) and affirmed the Moral Law (Mat 19:17-19).

    ·  The Moral Law is life-giving (Act 7:38), while the Ceremonial Laws were against His people (Col 2:14).

    ·  Believers are not 'under' the condemnation of any Law (Rom 8:1), but 'subject' to the Law of Christ (1Cor 9:21).

    ·  Christ intensified the Moral Law, by looking now already at the intent (e.g. lust, anger; see Mat 5:22, 28, 32, 33, 39, 44 ) and not only at the outcome (e.g. adultery, murder). 

    Numerologies

    God intended the Bible to be rich in Symbolism, Types and Numerologies. But we should be careful to not go too deep, to add own interpretations and to lose our focus on the Word itself. When we now focus on the most relevant numerologies, we will notice that God speaks to us in fascinating and divine ways, giving additional significance to Himself, to events, festivals and to certain patterns in the Bible.

    One  Anothering

    Learn how God wants us to relate to each other. We should not only Love one another, but also Accept, Bear, Bless, ComfortConfess, Encourage, Exhort, Forgive, Give, Greet, Honor, Instruct, Invite, be in One Accord, be One Body, Pray, Serve, Share, Share Burdens and Submit to one another. Each principle is illustrated through the most relevant Bible verses.

    Prophecies & Promises

    Learn about Old Testament Prophecies which had been fulfilled through Jesus Christ - with a well organized comparison of Old and New Testament Scripture.

    Learn also about New Testament Promises you can already live out today, if you are a born again Christian.

    The Sabbaths

    Modelled by God Himself, formalized more than 4000 years later through the eternal 4th Commandment, followed by Jesus and the Apostles, and with 4 future references in the Bible. The Ceremonial Sabbaths included in the book of the 613 Old Covenant Laws are nailed to the cross - but there is no doubt that the Weekly Sabbath carved on stone is binding for every single believer - the only question is how and when to live it? Saturday according to its origin, Sunday according to Christ's resurrection or maybe even Lunar? Let's reflect on the Word of God and bring some light into the monumental confusion we still have today.

    Salvation

    Learn about all the steps of a Christian life - from being born as a sinner, to the decisive step of Present Salvation and -Justification, the following Sanctification, closing with the great reward of Future Salvation, Final Judgment, Eternal Rewards and Eternal Life in the New Jerusalem here on earth. A special feature rarely found in other studies is the concept of Spiritual Self-Sufficiency / Age of Accountability at the age of 20 years, in addition to the meaning of 12 and 30 years in the life of a believer.

    It is definitely possible to lose a wrongly perceived salvation. 

    But 'the truly saved will stay saved.

    Spiritual  Gifts

    Spiritual Gifts are often abused, but sometimes even neglected in their existence. 

    Learn in this very balanced study more about the Spiritual Gifts of Administration, Apostleship (not the office), Discernment of Spirits, Evangelism, ExhortationFaith, Giving, Healing, Helps, Words of Knowledge, Leadership, Mercy, Miracles, Pastor, Prophecy, Serving, Speaking in and Interpretation of Tongues, Teaching and Wisdom. Who is the source of all gifts, how are they being distributed, and what is their purpose and effective use through us?

    Problematic teachers regularly abuse Spiritual Gifts. Learn about the differentiation of false teachers - such as Abusers, Anti-Christs, Charlatans, Dividers, False Prophets, Heretics, Prosperity / Word-Of-Faith Teachers, Speculators and Ticklers.

    Symbolism

    The Bible is full of symbolism, numerologies and hidden messages, with often astonishing meanings behind - showing how God masterfully orchestrated the events and chronology of Bible history and ultimately His Word.

    Theophanies

    Theophanies, sometimes also called Shekinah Glory, are manifestations of the Glory of God throughout history. Go on a truly amazing journey and be deeply touched how God interacted in the person of The Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit, and through Angels, elements and many astonishing miracles.

    Bible  T imeline

    Learn more about the chronological order of major biblical and significant extra-biblical events in world history. I compared several timelines and combined the findings into one monumental timeline that intends to come as close as possible to the real dates. The previous study on the Genealogies provides the precise starting point for human history.

    T he  T rinity

    Learn more about the Trinity, unfolding the 3 divine 'persons' that form the Godhead. Once you will understand the real differentiation, you will be able to intensify your personal relationship with the Father and the Son, in communication through the Holy Spirit.

    .

    From God the Father and Christ the Son, to Morning Stars, Angels, Host(s) of Heaven, Sons of God, over to human beings.

    Virtues  and   Vices

    Learn about the Fruit of the Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control), also called "Virtues". 

    No positive attributes would be complete without showing the contrast in the form of the Works of The Flesh, also called "Vices".
