Excerpt from “The Third Day”, my writing on this website.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the
honour of kings is to search out a matter [Proverbs 25:2].
The Old Testament has many types and shadows of the story of Jesus, and we will never find them all. It will take all of eternity to do that, but the fun is in the finding and searching out of God’s Word. The Holy Spirit is my helper and He helps me search, and bring to my remembrance scriptures to find the correct interpretation. Some parallels you will already know, but hopefully this book will broaden your perspective, and teach you how to recognize parallels in the Bible. The more we parallel the more we discover that each verse in the Bible ties together with another, and then another. Each discovery is very exciting to me, and I hope it will be for you too, as we discover parallels together that bring us closer to the knowledge of God.
God is a God of order, and here in this study of only three words, The Third Day, are parallels that prove the divinity of the Bible. Men wrote the Bible, but only through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, could a work such as the Bible be made evident. This book is proof that men, born several hundred years apart from each other, could not have written similar texts speaking of prophecies unknown to them. Including the rapture, tribulation, Armageddon, the Second Coming, and the Millennial Reign in chronological order of their occurrence unless given to them by the Holy Spirit. Since God does not live in the three dimensional world plus time as we do, His Word has no limits of these dimensions as we know them. But since God indwells in the believer, is it not possible to understand the mind of God if we so inquire? Is He not waiting to answer our questions when we ask? Of course He is.
