Overview

This is a book about 'being', yours and mine. The study of being is called 'Ontology'. Our culture
is dominated by a naturalist ontology. The question is: does ontology include a supernatural
component? Or, is that idea a relic of our primeval past, sort of like appendix and adenoids, parts
that can be excised from the body of our belief system? The author argues for the primacy of the
transcendent (supernatural) ontology by means of two books: the book of nature, and the book
of transcendency (the Bible), each containing its own portion of the evidence. Mr. Carlson argues
for the following:
• The universe represents a small portion of God's ontology, a small
reality devoted to redemption. The 'signet' of redemption is
the number '7'.
• The Creation Week account reflects a two-fold
metaphor: (1) space-time itself was created to
support the redemptive act, and (2) mankind's
history will unfold in a series of seven ages, later
quantified as millennia.
• The interval between Adam and
Abraham literally filled one redemptive
bi-millennium, but the catastrophic effects
of 3 realities, the Cainite civilization,
Noah, and the break-up of Pangaea,
contribute to the appearance of myth as
viewed by the uniformitarian geologist
for whom catastrophes appear invisible.
The 2nd bi-millennium, Abraham-to-
Messiah, was also fulfilled exactly in
redemptive time. The termination of
our age is imminent and dependent
upon the chronology of Israel,
mankind's chronograph.
• A detailed chronology of the
history of Israel is flavored with
the redemptive signet, especially
70 yrs or 70 heptads of yrs.
By decoding Israel's history in
redemptive time and employing the
single concept of 'the favor of God',
the author derives a Biblical-based
proof that modern Israel is the same
and identical state founded by Samuel
over 3000 yrs ago.
• The author concludes that the redemptive
corollary to Israel's ontology is also proven:
we have actually entered 'the end-times' and
the events associated with 'the last days' will
soon unfold.
• Because the reality of Israel is visible to all,
it is apparent that the redemptive offer made
to mankind is also real and visible, such as
that appearing in John 3:16, John 6:40, and
Romans 10:9-13. There is much to learn
about our world. Start now. Tomorrow may
be too late!
