For six out of eight years my wife and I had known each other, Cindy had become a Christian. I was not. Overall, this wasn’t an issue except when it came to “discussing” evolution/creation differences with her. It had finally gotten to the point where she was able to convince me that God did in fact create our cosmos and was responsible for the creation of life. Having graduated from pharmacy school, my science courses had taught me well enough that the 1st Law of Physics states that matter cannot be created or destroyed. However, even with that knowledge, I did not want to believe that God was behind it all. In fact, as I look back now, how hard headed (or hearted as some would say) I was to deny the scientific laws that gave absolute proof that there had to be a transcendent "Being" who crafted the entire cosmos. What pride had entered my life to deny God His rightful place in the creation of the cosmos. But through the word of God as spoken through my wife (faith comes by hearing the word of God) and significant pursuasion, I was able to come to believe "God" did in fact create our cosmos. However, I was not going to stoop down and agree in the “Adam and Eve” story. I was able to come to a point that I could believe "God" created life, but it had to come about through the Darwinian concept of specie evolution through survival of the fittest - as I was so taught in school. Yet, I still had doubts that a transcendent being was responsible for it all since she could not offer any “scientific” proof outside of bible verses she used to support her position. And in all honesty, at that point of time I only believed that the bible was a story, at best.
Then, in 1989 through an amazing "born-again" experience, I became a child of the living God by the atoning death of His Son, Jesus Christ, who shed His blood for me on the cross of Calvary and washed me of all my sins. It was an incredible experience and a process that still takes place this day (sanctification and justification in Him).
I went through what is called a “honeymoon” experience in getting to know Jesus. For many, which would include me, it was a time of incredible hunger, thirst and intimacy in establishing a personal relationship and a time to get to know Him. And what an amazing time it was. One of the first things that I asked Jesus about was why there was so little truth about Him available or made publicly known. And what was this evolution thing all about? In all honesty, I had a lot of questions that I desired answers to. I distinctly remember hearing from “that small voice of God” that said, “well go investigate what you have questions to”. And so, I set upon my heart to embark on seeking the information that I so desired to prove God, who I had come to know in such a wonderful and personal way. Within a couple of years I had a wealth of information. It was as though the Lord had led me down every road that was so abundant with "His" evidence.
By 1994, I had completed a manuscript that was well over 400 pages long. It included not only scientific evidence for proof of God, His Son and the Holy Spirit, but also a wealth of information about endtime prophecy which I was very interested in and had begun to play itself out so significantly.
In the latter part of 1994, I queried about 70 Christian publishers to see if they would be interested in publishing my work. Out of the 70, one was extremely interested and asked that I break this volumnous work down. I did so, but after 1-1/2 years a new editorial board caused a change in the publishers direction. Needless to say, I still feel honored to have been seriously considered for publication (which I had later found out is extremely difficult).
Today, the manuscript which was previously titled "Signs of the Times" has been rewritten and was published in 2011. The new title for this book is “Signs of the Coming of Messiah In This Generation”. to access website where you view web-book or purchase online. It details the incredible evidence for the coming of Jesus in a certain generation, which is explained in the book.
There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?
The Amazing Evidence
Over time, Info-tracts" were developed from the original chapters of the manuscript titled "The Evidence". For the most part, that is what you are now reading in the subject headings given in this website. The original manuscript is still available and may be purchased as a bound notebook for $12.99 from our Available Resources section. Plans are also in the works to have "The Amazing Evidence" available in an e-book version on this website for only $7.99. Stay tuned for this announcement.
About the Book, "The Amazing Evidence"
A recent book written by H. Vandergouw that looks at the signs of the times which Jesus spoke about in regard to His return.
