Why is the world today as it is?
In a seemingly advanced world, scientifically, and also the 21st Century, why is it people, human beings that is, are carrying on the way they do? To answer this one question, we have to compare what God says on this subject, and I can assure you it is quite comprehensive.
We will begin with:
2 Timothy 3 (KJV)
01 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
02 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
03 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
04 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
05 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
06 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers(e) lusts,
07 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
08 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
09 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
Take time to think about what Timothy is saying, look at yourself, look around you; Who should you avoid? Who should you help? Do not become a part of the problem of this so-called modern age, the last days, which by the way we are now in; study and learn what you will be tested on at the second coming of Christ http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm and http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm.
Now hear what Peter has to say about the world today.
2 Peter 3 (KJV)
01 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
02 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/lifeofjesus.htm
03 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
If you confess to being a Jew or Christian, unfortunately you, and others like you, become the target of scoffers, and those who do not believe in anything except self-gratification. This is to be expected; because they did not recognise Jesus, Christ, God or Jehovah. They did not know, or honour them, and they do not honour or know you. So we suffer as did Jesus.
04 And saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?’ ‘For since the fathers fell asleep (died), all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.’”
We know the promise of Christ’s second coming is contained in God’s Holy Word the Companion Bible (KJV). But of course; we have to study the pages to discover the TRUTH for ourselves, being led by the Holy Spirit into all TRUTH. However, they never did, and many like them also. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm
05 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
06 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/2%20Peter%203.htm
Why did the world that then was; perish? To answer this question we must go back to the beginning (Bereshith) of God’s Word the Companion Bible KJV when Adam and Eve were created, and the result. For this you will have to do a lot of reading and understanding.
BOOK OF ADAM AND EVE, Vita XVI: 3, 4 and XVII (p.137), and John 8:44.
XII 1) And with a heavy sigh, the devil spake: “O Adam! All my hostility, envy, and sorrow is for thee, since it is for thee that I have been expelled from my glory, which I possessed in the heavens in the midst of the angels and for thee I was cast out in the earth.” 2) Adam answered, “What dost thou tell me? What have I done to thee or what is my fault against thee? 3) Seeing that thou hast received no harm or injury from us, why dost thou pursue us?”
XIII 1) The devil replied, “Adam, what dost thou tell me? It is for thy sake that I have been hurled from that place. 2) When thou wast formed, I was hurled out of the presence of God and banished from the company of the angels. When God blew into thee the breath of life and thy face and likeness was made in the image of God, Michael also brought thee and made (us) worship thee in the sight of God; and God the Lord spake: ‘Here is Adam. I have made thee in our image and likeness.’
XIV 1) And Michael went out and called all the angels saying: ‘Worship the image of God as the Lord God hath commanded.’ 2) And Michael himself worshipped first; then he called me [Lucifer] and said: ‘Worship the image of God the Lord.’ 3) And I answered, ‘I have no (need) to worship Adam.’ And since Michael kept urging me to worship, I said to him, ‘Why dost thou urge me? I will not worship an inferior and younger being (than I). I am his senior in the creation, before he was made was I already made. It is his duty to worship me.
XV 1) When the angels, who were under me, heard this, they refused to worship him. 2) And Michael saith, ‘Worship the image of God, but if thou wilt not worship him, the Lord God will be wrath with thee.’ 3) And I said, ‘If He be wrath with me, I will set my seat above the stars of heaven and will be like the Highest.’
XVI 1) And God the LORD was wrath with me and banished me and my angels from our glory; and on thy account were we expelled from our abodes into this world and hurled on the earth. 2) And straightaway we were overcome with grief, since we had been spoiled of so great glory. 3) And we were grieved when we saw thee in such joy and luxury. 4) And with guile I cheated thy wife and caused thee to be expelled through her (doing) from thy joy and luxury, as I have been driven out of my glory.”
XVII 1) When Adam heard the devil say this, he cried out and wept and spake: “O Lord my God, my life is in thy hands. Banish this Adversary far from me, who seeketh to destroy my soul, and give me his glory which he himself hath lost.” 2) And at that moment, the devil vanished before him. 3) But Adam endured in his penance, standing for forty days (on end) in the water of Jordan.
The damage had been done when the devil finally seduced Eve. and Eve herself cajoled Adam to partake resulting in SUPERFECUNDATION (is the fertilization of two or more ova from the same cycle by sperm from separate acts of sexual intercourse). Their eyes were now opened and they knew they had done wrong, and quickly made covers of fig leaves to conceal their private parts. They knew before, but their knowledge now received a new meaning. Adam became “naked” by losing something of Elohim’s glorious likeness.
Romans 8:3 (KJV) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
They heard the voice of the Lord walking in the garden, and hid themselves from God amongst the vegetation (As we do to this day). When asked by God the reason why? they replied, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” The moment God heard this confession He enquired, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you both eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded you that you should not eat?”
Then God said to the devil the most profound and important prophecy He ever related:
Genesis 3:15 (KJV) And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman, [Christ] and between thy seed [Satan's] and her seed; [Christ's] it shall bruise thy head, [Satan] and thou shalt bruise His heel [Christ crucified].
Genesis 3:24 KJV) So he drove out the man (and woman); and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.(Christ)
A flaming sword which turned every way; is pictured on the left showing Jehovah’s clock; which He placed at the east of the garden, cherubims and a flaming sword. This image is called the Precession of the Equinox. Orion constellation hovers over the main pyramid, and rotates anti-clockwise beginning at Virgo, and ending with Leo. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thestarsalso2.htm It can also be seen in both hemispheres. We are in the last days now when the second advent of Christ will come, so needless to say there is not much time left to get prepared.
07 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm.
08 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The earth and everything on it will be burned up, and destroyed by fire to regenerate it. So as Peter asks, “What kind of people ought we to be when that time comes?” Well it’s pretty obvious WE OUGHT TO BE PREPARED. Through learning about God here on this website… http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm all you need to know is here.
09 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. http://godsplan.org.uk/messianicage.htm leading to http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; http://www.godsplan.org.uk/stpaul.htm
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
However the title of this page is ‘Why is the world today as it is?’ It is because of Satan’s interference in God’s Plan; and disobedience http://godsplan.org.uk/serpentofgenesis3.htm he was thrown down to the earth and became ‘prince of the air’
Ephesians 2:2 (KJV) Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
God sent His own Son to this earth and was born in the flesh of Mariam and Joseph, in the bloodline of King David, of the house of Jesse http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm Jesus was sent to earth to show to those who followed Him the way back to His Father.
Birth and Infancy. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/lifeofjesus.htm
The very beautiful introduction to Luke’s Gospel narrates the birth of John the Baptist, and the birth of Jesus. In these two chapters Luke gives us a background against which the subsequent narrative has to be read. The New Religion, he seems to say, was born in a burst of song; Jesus and His forerunner the Baptist were born and cradled in song. Many, indeed, believe that the prominence of sacred lyrics in these chapters (like the Magnificat, the Benedictus, and the Nunc Dimittis) indicates the spirit in which they are to be read. In his introduction, Luke implicitly reminds us that the men who hounded Jesus to His death did not represent the whole of Judaism. From these chapters we get a very different impression of the Temple, the priesthood, and the Jewish Piety of the time from that which we get from the subsequent history. In the birth and infancy sections both of Matthew and Luke, we are struck by the prominent part played by angels and visions as a means by which God made His will known to His servants. While the records ascribe to Jesus Himself a belief in angels, they played practically no part in His religious life. His communion with His Father God was so unhindered and direct that He was conscious of no gulf between them, and so felt no need of angels to act as intermediaries.
At a very early period in the history of the church the title Son of God was applied to Jesus. In their Gospels “Mathew” and Luke teach that Jesus was the Son of God, not only in the sense that His will was one with God’s will and that in Him; God had become incarnate, but in a physical sense also; that in His case the Holy Spirit took the place of a human father. The doctrine of the virgin birth, as it is called, has been asserted, doubted, and denied by men who all equally claim to be loyal followers of Jesus.
Those who hesitate to make belief in the virginity of Mariam, an essential of the Christian faith bring support for their position from various quarters. The virgin birth, they say, is clearly taught in Matthew, but not so quite clearly in Luke; apart from the introductions to these two Gospels, it is nowhere mentioned in the NT. It was obviously not a theme of the first Christian preachers. If John does not deny it, he neither confirms it.
However; in our own limited human minds, can we suppose that the miracles of God are any less true than has been suggested? Of course not. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/nativityofjesus.htm
As Jesus grew into adulthood He was tested, tempted, and gave His all to humankind. Preaching on the Mount of Olives known as the ‘Olivet Discourse’ http://www.godsplan.org.uk/olivetdiscourse.htm It is very important to read this.
During the teaching of the Olivet Discourse, Jesus related many parables, mostly about the coming Future Kingdom http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm but one parable stood out to explain and concur what was actually happening on this fallen earth. Here is what Matthew relates:
Matthew 13 (KJV)
01 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
02 And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
03 And He spake many things unto them in parables, saying, “Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
04 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
05 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
06 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
07 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
08 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
09 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
11 He answered and said unto them, “Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.’
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.’”
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias (Isaiah), which saith, “By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:”
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
17 For verily I say unto you, “That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth [endures] for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/askseekknock.htm
24 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:”
25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”
26 “But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.”
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, “Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?”
28 He said unto them, “An enemy hath done this.” The servants said unto him, “Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?”
29 But he said, “Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.”
30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
HERE IS THE REASON WHY THE WORLD IS THE WAY IT IS TODAY.
31 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:’
32 ‘Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.’”
33 Another parable spake He unto them; “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”
34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, “I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jehovah%27sword.htm
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto Him, saying, “Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.”
Explanation of the Wheat and Tares Parable.
37 He answered and said unto them, “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;”
38 “The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;”
39 “The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.”
40 “As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.”
41 “The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;”
42 “And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
43 “Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
51 Jesus saith unto them, “Have ye understood all these things?” They say unto Him, “Yea, Lord.”
52 Then said He unto them, “Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm
53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, He departed thence.
54 And when He was come into His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, “Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?”
55 “Is not this the carpenter's son? is not His mother called Mariam? and His brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?”
56 And His sisters, “are they not all with us? “Whence then hath this man all these things?”
57 And they were offended in Him. But Jesus said unto them, “A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.”
58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
· The world today is split approximately into 50% x 50% of Wheat and Tares. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/parables.htm
· The Tares are temporarily in the ascendency.
· However at the second coming of Christ this will all change. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm
· Even Brexit proves this with a little over 50-50 split vote at the referendum, and making Democracy dead. Revelation 18:4 (KJV) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/revelation_%20revealed.htm
It may sound prophetic and full of wisdom; but this fallen earth we are now on is only temporary. It was put in place after the interference by Satan with Adam and Eve http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm. The Giza Pyramids, and Sphinx, along with Orion foretell the expulsion of our parents after being created: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thestarsalso2.htm
Genesis 3:23-24 (KJV)
23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
24 So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
Revelation reveals that the wicked (tares) shall be burned, and the believers in God (wheat) will join Him in the future kingdom http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm
It is here the stumbling block appears for those who look only for material things to consume, neither to the future, which is not for them; nor their families (fruits). Actually studying the Holy Bible and studying it properly, will take effort and understanding to enable you to see the TRUTH of the Holy Spirit which God kindly sends to His sons (wheat). Only you can make a decision for yourself to search and discover the TRUTH; which has been buried deep, regardless whatever this fallen earth throws at you http://godsplan.org.uk/fleshage.htm. You can win through with a great deal of faith in God http://www.godsplan.org.uk/faith.htm that only He can afford protection and comfort for you and your family.
2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Psalm 97:6, and 111:6); they prophesy “day by day”, “night by night”, the question is: What do they prophesy? What knowledge do they show forth? What glory do they tell of? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thestarsalso2.htm
The answer is—Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve], and between thy seed and her Seed; It shall bruise thy head [Satan], and thou shall bruise His heel. [Christ’s crucifixion}
The one great central truth of all prophecy – the coming of One http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm Who, though He should suffer http://www.godsplan.org.uk/stars.htm should in the end crush the head of the old serpent, the Devil. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/deathswallowedup.htm
But, where are we to open this book? Where are we to break into this circle of the Zodiacal signs?
Through the “Precession of the Equinoxes” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm the sun gradually shifts its position a little each year, until in about every 2000 years it begins the year in a different sign. This was foreseen; and it was also foreseen that succeeding generations would not know when and where the sun began its course, and where the teaching of this Heavenly Book commenced, and where we were to open its first page. Hence the “Sphinx” was invented as a memorial.
It had the head of a woman [Virgo; the virgin birth] and the body and tail of a lion [Lion of Judah; Christ’s second coming] to tell us this book, written in the Heavens, began with the sign “Virgo” (Virgin), and will end with the sign “Leo” (Lion). The word “Sphinx” is from the Greek Sphingo, to join; because it binds together the two ends of this circle of the heavens.
The number of the signs is twelve, the number of governmental perfection or “rule”: It is the number or factor of all numbers connected with government: whether by Tribes or Apostles, or in measurements of time, or in things which have to do with government in the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:18 (KJV) And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: And God saw that it was good.
It must also be remembered that there were no computers, nor internet, nor electric, nor printing presses until William Caxton invented it in 1476 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Caxton Hence the Stars and the constellations with which He revealed to those on the earth at this time http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thestarsalso2.htm The Egyptians were astronomers and built a temple at Denderah in Esneh over 4000 years ago which is still on view today. The Pyramids are much older and were built to reveal to us; the Adamic people, the second coming of Christ http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm the tribulation http://godsplan.org.uk/greattribulation2.htm and the http://www.godsplan.org.uk/kingdom.htm
These four links (amongst others) were reached through diligently seeking the TRUTH which we will all be tested on at the great tribulation. So you have some work to do.
They are divided into three books of four chapters (or signs) each: twelve being the product of 3 x 4, i.e. of Divine truth working in the heavens and in the earth. https://levendwater.org/companion/append10.html
Each book, therefore, consists of four signs; and these are all arranged by structure, in exactly the same way.
Each is introversion (a central dimension of human personality).
So once again here you have it, to read, learn, and inwardly digest by reading all the links on http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Index.htm by using also The Companion Bible and Appendixes https://levendwater.org/companion/index_companion.html the choice now rests in your hands.
