“Better to know nothing, than to half-know much. Truth mingled with lies is vain self-deception and the genesis of all cognitive dissonance.”
Forty years ago, these were the first words God spoke to the author, Mark Edward; a zealous, outspoken Jewish atheist with a healthy mistrust of all religions and in particular the fallible and all-too-often deceitful men behind them. It is these self-aggrandizing mere mortals, locked in their own self-imposed prison of cognitive dissonance, who throughout history are directly responsible for so many conflicting beliefs and religions. Of particular contempt for the Author was religion's abuse of the psychological trap of "sin-consciousness" and the obsessive self-condemnation (never being "good enough") which reinforces it. Moreover, all religions which employ such passive-oppressive force, and especially those which espouse hatred and violence against others “in the name of God”, are reflective of the venal men and prevailing but transient cultures they identify with, rather than a morally pure, a-cultural, Eternal and Loving God. It is precisely the plethora of so many competing and contradictory notions about God which reinforce the atheist’s mindset: Either God is very confused about who he is, he does not exist or, if he does exist, he want’s nothing to do with mankind, so why have anything to do with him? This was the very compelling and logical philosophical argument the author recalls making for the first twenty-seven years of his life. What changed?
At age twenty-seven, the author had a profound, supernatural “Damascus road” experience in which he was “taken up” into a cloud and “met” The One, True, Living God Who Is There”; a descriptor the author used to refer to this intensely Real, Eternal and Infinite God, yet not knowing his “Name”, nor what “religion” He was associated with. However, being now “fully persuaded” as to the reality of His existence, Mr. Edward privately began just speaking to the air (praying), believing that God was able to both “hear” him, and most certainly willing and able to “communicate” with him, as God had now clearly demonstrated. And God answered in an equally profound, life-altering manner, which the author details in the series. Being all Absolute Truth, this God has unfailingly honored this then-former atheist’s request that He, God, ensure that the author would not be deceived in any way, nor be led to believe any lies about Him, or what He desired to do in this world. (Political/gender-sensitivities notwithstanding, human pronouns are woefully inadequate to refer to an “a-sexual” Supreme Being; who is neither "male or female", but Spirit Life (Greek "Zoe").
And so, God began to teach the author about Him; not in the “half-truths” borne of the reasonings and opinions of mortal men, nor in the “nonsense” of religious dogma and traditions, but within and through each revealed Absolute Truth upon another; step by step, over the ensuing forty years.
In January of 2019, God “released” the author to begin writing all that he had been shown and taught; indicating that He now intends to reveal to anyone and everyone—whom the Bible refers to as the “whosoevers”—this “Mystery” which the Bible also says has been kept “Hidden” until now, the “last time”, just prior to the soon return of the Son, Messiah Jesus Christ.
This twelve-book teaching series is the complete and final instructions to these "whosoevers"--any and all who seek to know how to in fact make ourselves ready—according to God’s specific plan and expectations. In these Last Days, all else in religious dogma and "service" is folly and self-deception.
The series promises to be highly controversial, and will begin a passionate dialogue that started 6,000 years ago; one which the world has been desperately needing to have, and now must have.
The author is confident that all peoples, including pragmatists, atheists, agnostics, the spiritual, and people of all faiths will certainly find great value in the author’s objective, reasoned, no-nonsense approach to the subject of the existence of a One, True, Living God (logically, and by simple definition there can be only One), as well as the tangible proofs of a Loving God both desiring and willing to communicate directly and personally with all people. Readers will also appreciate the author’s revealing insights into current societal events and their fulfillment of Biblical prophecies leading up to this final period just prior to the Lord’s return, and in which God said He would “pour out His Spirit upon all people” (Joel 2:28), not solely upon any one particular religious group, but to all individuals, and for the purpose of making a final appeal for all who are sincere in their heart's desire to believe and receive Him. The series reveals the truly fascinating impact such a pervasive imposition of God's Spirit will have upon all peoples, based on the condition of their inner, true selves, and how each one's subsequent behavior propels the world toward its inevitable destiny in the Hands of the One, True, Living & Loving God Who IS There!
