The Bible is a book. Nothing more. Some believe this book to be the literal word of God. Some believe it to be a work of fiction. I do not accept that the Bible is recorded history any more than I believe the Bhagavad Gita is. Or Alice in Wonderland for that matter.

No, you shouldn't assume I reject all recorded history. I evaluate recorded history using the evidence available, particularly independent contemporaneous evidence. In most cases, there's plenty of that.

Did the US Civil War happen? Almost certainly. There's a ton of evidence from different sources, found in different places. There are hundreds (perhaps thousands) of books and articles that were written at the time the war occurred, not a single book written hundreds of years later.

Did Atlantis exist? I don't know but probably not. There are a few books of apparent fiction saying it did, and no physical evidence. This said, there's more evidence of Atlantis having existed than there is of Jesus Christ having existed.

I want to talk about this subject but it's hard to know where to start. Starting with Jesus is the only possible way for me to begin. So I decided to begin at the Genesis 1:1-3 since that's where His mystery begins.
I'm not here to prove anything. I'm only here to share somethings I've learned.
So people are always saying they don't understand this thing called Trinity. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Gen1:1 (God the Father)
And the earth was formless and void; and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved over the face of the waters. Gen 1:2 (God the Holy Spirit)
And God said, "Let there be light, and there was light. Gen 1:3 (God the Son)
The Trinity!

2 Peter 3:8 says, "One day is, with God, as a thousand years and a thousand years is as one day.

God created heaven and earth and everything in it in 6 days and He rested on the 7th which explains the "one day" part of this scripture. But how is it as a thousand years?
There are some 2000 years between the Creation and the Flood.
There are some 2000 years between the flood and the birth, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
There are some 2000 years between Christ and the present.

God's 7th day of rest (Gen 2:1-3) is as our 1000 year reign with Christ. (Rev 20:4-6)
In other words for every 1 day God worked, so shall we work 1000 years.
I've posted this so that you might see how late the hour is.

So God made a covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel). When Jacob was old, his son Joesph went to him and took his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh who were born to him by an Egyptian woman.
And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him. Gen 46:20

Jacob blessed the boys with this blessing

And he blessed Joseph and said, "The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked,
the God who has led me all my life long to this day,
the Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads;
and let my name (Israel) be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac;
and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.” Gen 48:15-16

After this, Jacob gathered his 12 sons and told them what would happen to them in the days to come. Gen 49

I encourage you to read this chapter and see if you can identify your nation according to the words spoken of each tribe.

Israel is a rebellious people. :( All day long we worship God with our lips but our hearts are far from Him. Storing up sorrow upon sorrow for our guilt. I can't believe what we've done and we deserve no mercy.

We? Are you of the opinion that modern-day America is Biblical Israel?

I thought it'd take forever for You to realize this, but finally! Hooray!
It is called "British Israelism" and C-I-dentistry in its most extreme form. The lost tribes, can You see them now, too? You must know, Israel is a scattered sheep...

I didn't just "realize" this. I'm aware that some people have this opinion. I don't share it.
