ORIGIN of the 7 Questions (Here)
 
Please note that we are using the King James Version of the bible for quotations mostly, with the exception of when another version is quoted, then a note or acronym  (KJV, NIV, WEB, etc.) is given.

1.  Who was the first man the Creator told to write His words in a book?

Exodus 6:2-3, (KJV)
And Elohim spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am Yahweh:  And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name El-Shaddai, but by my name Yahweh was I not known to them.

Exodus 34:27
And Yahweh said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.


Deuteronomy 31:24-26, (KJV)

And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished, That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord, saying, Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of Yahweh your Elohim, that it may be there for a witness against thee. 

 

2. What is the process for proving what is true, according to the bible?

Our main concerns are:

  • Proving what is true and acceptable in the eyes of Yahweh
  • Proving that Yahshua is His son whom he sent into the world on a special mission
  • Proving that Yahweh is really the Creator and Sovereign Ruler of Heaven and Earth

The verses listed below are the key verses in our proving process, but they must be applied according to the tabernacle pattern which serves as our guiding principle.  The tabernacle pattern as described by Moses, provides us three types of knowledge: literal, figurative and symbolic.   By using the tabernacle pattern as a universal principle, this knowledge gives us ingredients for a unique system for thought and reasoning. To one who has been instructed, the tabernacle system as described in the writings of Moses, becomes like a technician's toolbox packed with an assortment of precision tools. Sometimes Dr Kinley, when he was teaching, would tell us that the tabernacle, in many instances,  was like a slide-rule that engineers used. 


1 Thessalonians 5:21-22, (KJV)

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Abstain from all appearance of evil.
 

John 5:44-46

How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
 

Luke 24:25-27

Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.


Deuteronomy 19:15

One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
 

2 Timothy 3:16-17, (KJV)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
 


Isaiah 8:20, (KJV)

To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.


Acts 28:23, (NKJV)

So when they had appointed him (Saul) a day, many came to him at his lodging, to whom he explained and solemnly testified of the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets, from morning till evening.
 
Romans 1:19-20 (KJV)
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:


                                               After A Soul Conversion:

1 Corinthians 2:12-14, (KJV)

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.


Acts 17:31, 1984 (NIV1984)

For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed.  He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead.”


1 Corinthians 15:1-4, (NKJV)

Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,


Isaiah 28:9-11, (KJV)

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:  For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
 

2 Timothy 2:15 (AKJV)

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 

 

3. When and how did the Creator divide the human family (race) into two groups of people who came to be known as, Jews and Gentiles?

The first indication was when Yahweh-Elohim called Abram out from Ur of Chaldea
It began with the promise to Abraham, when Elohim made a covenant of circumcision with Abraham. Circumcision was a token to show that Yahweh had promised to make the descendants of Abraham His chosen people. And just befor
e Isaac, the chosen seed, was born Yahweh told Abraham that all nations would be blessed in him. -  Genesis 17

A second time is when a separation was declared as Yahweh began to plague Egypt.

Exodus 8:20-24, (KJV)
And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me. And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.  And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.  

And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.


The 3rd time was at mount Sinai when Yahweh, by a lawful act, made the covenant with the children of Israel, that He would be their Elohim.
Leviticus 20:24-27

But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the LORD your God, who has separated you from the peoples.  And you shall be holy to Me, for I the LORD am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.

And King David validates the reality that Israel is a separate people.

1 Kings 8:52-54
For You separated them from among all the peoples of the earth to be Your inheritance, as You spoke by Your servant Moses, when You brought our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.”
 
 
4. (Regarding Truth) Where must we begin to correctly study the bible writings, and why?

In order to correctly learn and study, we
absolutely must start where the Messiah said to start: "and beginning at Moses," He began to carefully explain to his disciples particular things about himself that were written the scriptures.  That means we must go to the Law and the prophets, as he said, and look to see where we first encounter the man Moses.  The Messiah told the Jewish leaders if they wanted to know about him, they must go to the scriptures and begin at Moses, because Moses wrote of Him.  Elohim called Moses His friend, and chose Moses to be the one man to record the only true and complete account of the purpose of Yahweh manifesting in the physical creation. His writings are literal, figurative and symbolic, and that is why the apostle Saul refers to them as "a school master," and points out their specific value (2 Timothy 3:160-17). But this is all a very great mystery: note what Saul wrote:
 
1 Corinthians 2:7
   ". . . but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery,  even the hidden wisdom . . ."
 
Colossians 4:3
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:. . .
 
Then the apostle Peter wrote this about the writings of Saul.  (Saul is a Hebrew word, and Paul is the Greek word.)
 
2 Peter 3:15-16
And account that the long suffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul (Saul) also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 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.
 

5. Why did the Israelites totally wipe out whole communities in the land of Canaan?

Complete groups of people were destroyed because in the eyes of Yahweh they were very wicked people. We must keep in mind that the Creator sees into the hearts and minds of the people; and that He is operating His purpose here on earth. 
 
Leviticus 18:24-28 (AKJV)
Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: and the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (for all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) that the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
 
Deuteronomy 18:9, (KJV)
When thou art come into the land which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee, thou shalt NOT learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
 
We must also keep in mind what Yahweh told Moses . . .
 
Romans 9:15
For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

6. How did the information in the bible first come to mankind?

The information in the bible first came into existence through Moses who recorded the life experiences of himself and the children of Israel (Jacob), and later various chosen men, called prophets, wrote also. The scholars tell us that those writings were gathered and grouped together by the Jewish people during and after their 70 years of captivity to the Babylonians

Deuteronomy 4:5-8,  (KJV)
Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
 
Isaiah 43:10-12, (GW)

"You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord.
“I have chosen you as my servant
    so that you can know and believe in me
        and understand that I am the one who did this.
No god was formed before me,
     and there will be none after me.
I alone am the Lord,
     and there is no savior except me.
I have revealed it to you, I have saved you,
      and I have announced it to you.
          There was no foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses that I am God,” declares the Lord.
 
Jeremiah 35:15
I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.

7.  How did the Creator first reveal Himself and explain His purpose?  

In the Sinai desert where Moses was watching a flock sheep just behind mount Horeb, the Creator revealed himself to the man Moses in a vision (the burning bush).  It was there that the Yahweh introduced Himself to Moses and clearly demonstrated who he was.  He also informed Moses of his purpose for appearing and how He, Yahweh, was going to accomplish what He planned to do.  He also told Moses that He would be with him down in Egypt. So it was there that He revealed and demonstrated all that He had explained to Moses about what He would do.
 
Psalm 103:7
He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
 
Numbers 12:5-9
And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed. 
 
Deuteronomy 34:10-12
And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, in all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, and in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.

We are vigilant in our efforts to provide a maximum user friendly interaction and learning experience. But you may fine some area that is not finished or where some features may not work as they should; so please bear with us. Much like a fetus in the womb: our campus and studies are formed and developed according to the tabernacle-pattern which serves as a universal principle. Because the pattern, as a principle, is a threefold structure; therefore the development of our university and learning programs are also arranged in three parts.  Once our programs are completed the student or learner should be greatly benefited from this structured and systematic way of learning.  The Book of Exodus is the source for our direction in this task (see Exodus 25:8-9, 40; Hebrews 8:3-5).
