How did I come to the following conclusions that are written in this book? "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth . . . and He will show you things to come" (John 16:13, emphasis added). "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He [Yahushua] expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself." "And they said to one another, Did not our hearts burn within us, while He talked with us by the way, and while He opened to us the scriptures?" (Luke 24:27, 32, emphasis added). Only Yahushua, through the Holy Spirit, can open our understanding to what the Bible teaches on any particular subject. I can only say with Jacob as recorded in Genesis 32:10, "I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which Thou hast shown unto Thy servant" (emphasis added). Ultimately, it is Elohim Who opens to us the correct understanding of His Word. When we understand what He has shown us, we can only bow in wonder and awe. Along with that understanding, comes the obligation and desire to share what you have been taught.
I owe a debt of gratitude to Sherry, my dear wife, who has spent hours critiquing the contents of this book. She took time to listen to me as I bounced ideas off her; for her editorial skills in making sense of what I wrote; for her advice on a wide range of matters. She was so patient with me; for her openness to Elohim's Spirit to encourage me to write this book; for her contributions to the understanding of different portions of Daniel and Revelation, and for her helping me to develop the necessary computer skills to write this book. And most of all, for her prayers for me! She indeed has been my helpmate.
