I do not care merely to be right- I have no ego involvement in that respect- except that in order to cut straightly the word of God and rightly divine the truth I must strive for correctness. I have been corrected (and for which I made adjustment and thanked the person who pointed out my mistake in specific matters. I am doing the best with trained capability (hopefully) guided by spiritual intuition to relate spiritual reality in concrete, objective, empirical manifestations. Not to parade knowledge for knowledge's sake, but to remove the mental blinding that the god of this age has used to prevent unbelievers from receiving Christ (or at the last moment to not follow the antichrist). Doctrine and deduced interpretation (vs. intuitive revelation) are not the truth itself but only point to the truth, which is the reality of a Person- Jesus. If someone's doctrines help them to experience Christ then they are of real benefit; whereas the most theologically correct dead letter that does not lead to further subjective experience of Christ is vain.
The Lord happened to lead me to receive Him by a mental, logical, empirical process of knowledge. I am a debtor to relate the logical facts so that: "If by any means, I might save some."
I have no interest in arguing opinions, I desire that all men be saved and come to the full knowledge of the truth. If any part of my attempt to do so by relating things in terms of objective knowledge has error, then please help me to be correct.
Now, to answer your question: 1. 12 years part-time putting the pieces together. 2. 2 full years researching, footnoting, and writing. 3. Finished in 1982. Widespread dissemination prior to now would have interfered with 'the bride making herself ready'. Now, we're close enough to the end of the age of grace that it won't affect that. But may it save many who Satan would otherwise destroy.
Fact: I knew that I had a spirit (different & deeper than my soul). I knew that there was a God. I knew that there was an opposing force to God (Satan) I knew that man had a free will, but had to fall first and then by many choices be transformed into God's image. I knew that the Bible was the word of God.
I knew all of those facts objectively before I had even read the Bible or received (regenerated) the Lord.
I owe a debt that cannot be repaid. But I have a responsibility from the Lord to speak what I do not merely know mentally- but what I am by in my very being by the Lord’s great mercy.
