Greetings in the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website, and for your interest in the Word of God.
I have eliminated the "Downloads" page, and replaced it with this page, because it had become unnecessary with this part of the site, which has all of the downloads and studies in one place.
This site is dedicated to explaining what the Golden Ratio Format of the Bible is, and how it works, on every level of the Bible. This is a task which has never been done before, so it is going to take some time yet before it is complete.
As you can see by looking on the left at the Navigation menu, the Introduction and Book-level studies are mostly complete. I've been working on this since 2001 when God called me to this work, so the basic work of sorting out how the Divisions, Volumes, Books, Parts, Chapters, Sections, Paragraphs, and Sub-paragraphs should be arranged properly has been done already. The Psalms are still under revision, but you can view the Bible text of Psalms in the reading area of each version and see the current status of the arrangement. There is a lot of work to do in the Psalms; it is a matter of finding time in my schedule.
The next stage of this work involves determining what the themes of all of these text divisions are. The themes are more or less complete down to the Chapter level, but below that, only the Chapter-level studies that you see on the left (to date Kings, Chronicles, Post-Exile Temples, Matthew, and part of Luke) have themes down to the paragraph level. I have already done some of other parts of the Bible and posted the results on the reading area, but these are still unofficial until I can do a Chapter-level study.
I hope and expect to complete Chapter-level studies similar to these for every Book in the Bible over the next few years. You need to check back here periodically for new studies. I have been able to complete one Book every few months, so with 40 Books total to do, that means several years to go.
The benefit of these detailed studies is that small errors in the arrangement that still exist, even after 16 years of work, are uncovered and corrected as I complete them. Eliminating all format inaccuracies may not be possible, because of the complexity and size of the Bible Canon; but I will do my best to find and correct them until I can do no more. That is my calling from the Lord Jesus Christ.
So the major goal of this ministry is to construct a perfectly arranged, and perfectly themed Bible version in English. I'm preparing 3 versions simultaneously along with the studies: an English Kingdom Bible Version, an updated KJV 2014, and a Spanish Kingdom Bible Version; all of which are arranged according to the Golden Ratio, with the same themes. These are all viewable, as the work is completed, at the links you see in the Navigation menu.
This is a preview of other language versions that I intend to work on once the "theming" part of this work is complete; and that will not be done for at least a couple of more years, because I'm also working full-time in engineering to support my Bible research work here. This is the way that God has directed this ministry to be supported.
Trying to understand the Bible is not an easy task. It requires
1) that you are a born-again Christian.
"Jesus answered and said to him, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a man is born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.'” John 3:3
"But as many as received him, to them gave he authority to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his Name; who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." John 1:12-13
1 Corinthians 2:14: "But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, because they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual discerns all things, yet he himself is discerned by no man. For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
If you have never been saved (born-again, which means that you came to the realization that you were a sinner, you heard the Gospel of Christ, you repented of your sin, and believed in Jesus: asking Him to come into your heart and life), then you do not have the Author of the Bible in your heart to help you understand what it means.
If you were only baptized by your church, or you are a church member, that alone will not save you. The church is not an "Ark" that will save you from Hell simply by virtue of being a member or having been baptized or having been a pastor, a deacon or long-time member. Only Jesus can save your soul from Hell, and that only happens when we repent and accept Him as our Lord and Savior.
"...that if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved: for with the heart man believes into righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made into salvation: for the Scripture says, “Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.”
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him: for it is written, “whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

The Holy Spirit is the Author of all Scripture (i.e. the Traditional Canon of the Bible only). You must have his help to understand what He has give to us by Divine Inspiration, otherwise your heart will be filled with unbelief and darkness, and you will not understand it.
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for the one coming to God must believe that he exists; and that he is a rewarder of them that eagerly seek him." Hebrews 11:6
Jesus said, "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. Nevertheless when he, the Spirit of Truth, has come, he will guide you into all Truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak; and he will show you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it to you. All things that the Father has are mine; therefore I said, that he shall take of mine, and shall show it to you." John 16:12-15
When you repent of your sin and receive Jesus as your personal Savior, then the Author of the Bible comes to live/dwell in your heart. Then He will be your Teacher and Guide into all Divine Truth.
Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my Commandments; and I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may remain with you forever: even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see him, nor know him. But you know him: for he dwells with you, and shall be in you." John 14:16-17
Some might think, "That sounds scary! You mean that I shouldn't listen to my pastor and Sunday School teachers and instead pray to the Lord for his help to understand the Bible?"
That's not what I am saying. It is not necessarily a matter of "either them or God"; it is a matter of both. If your pastor and teachers are following the Word of God, they will agree with the Holy Spirit, since He is the Author of the Bible. So if they are true followers of the Lord, then your own seeking after God will work together with their teaching to the glory of God and your own spiritual growth and blessing.
If, on the other hand, they are NOT following the Word of God, then there is going to be a problem. You will have to decide whether to follow God or follow them. I advise you to follow the Lord and find a solid, Bible-believing, Bible-preaching Fundamental Baptist church if your pastor and/or teachers are teaching bad theology.
And if your church allows rock music (distorted, high-volume guitars with loud drums) in their services, I advise you to find one that still honors the old-time Gospel hymns instead, especially in the Youth department. You cannot allow Satan's music into your church, even if the devil is using what sounds like God's Words. There is an entire story to be told there, which I don't have space to cover on this page. Suffice it to say that I used to listen to the devil's music when I was lost; but since then, I learned that God's music is different than the world's music. It isn't just the words, it is the whole package. I will post a study on that topic in the future.
On the other hand, no church is 100% perfect in every respect, because they are filled with people who have not yet been glorified in Heaven, so we all must make war with Satan and the sin nature every day of our lives. It is a common struggle that all born-again Christians share. We are all learning to follow Christ day by day (if we are saved), so we need to give others latitude, as we hope others will give us latitude for our weaknesses and errors.
The bottom line is that we must follow our Lord Jesus Christ, no matter who else is following, or not.
"Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling: for it is God who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." Philippians 2:12-13
2) It requires that you dedicate yourself to the task of learning about what God has given to us, because it is not an easy task:
Hebrews 5:11-14: "Of whom we have many things to say; but hard to be uttered, seeing you are dull of hearing. For when for the time you should be teachers, you have need that someone teaches you again which are the first principles of the Oracles of God. And you have become such as have need of milk, and not of solid food: for every one that uses milk is unskilled in the Word of righteousness, because he is a spiritual baby; but solid food belongs to them that are spiritually mature, even those who by reason of habitual use have trained their senses to discern both good and evil."
If you have a life that is filled with worldly things and worldly rock/rap/punk/ungodly country music, those will interfere with your study of the Word of God and make it difficult for you. Have you ever noticed that some people sleep through preaching services? Sometimes it is because they are tired from having worked all night; but many times it is because their lives are filled with "the world", and have no room to allow the Word of God to take deep root in their lives and produce fruit for His glory.
Matthew 13:1-17: "The same day Jesus went out of the house, and sat by the seaside. And great multitudes were gathered together to him, so that he went into a boat; and he sat, and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And he spoke many things to them in parables, saying, “Behold, a sower went forth to sow; and when he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured them up. Some fell upon stony places, where they did not have much earth; and immediately they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth; and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up, and choked them; but other seeds fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
And the disciples came, and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” He answered and said to them, “Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given: for whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; but whosoever does not have, from him shall be taken away even that which he has. Therefore I speak to them in parables, because they seeing do not see; and hearing they do not hear; neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which says, ‘By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive: for this people’s heart has become callous, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes, lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.’
But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear: for truly I say to you, that many Prophets and righteous men have desired to see what you see, and have not seen them; and to hear what you hear, and have not heard them."
I assume that since you are visiting this site, you are a serious student of the Word of God, the Holy Bible. If that is true, then you have come to the right place to start putting deep roots into the precious Word of God, and you will grow spiritually by using the resources that are available in these studies and in the text of the 3 versions that I have published online (see the link at left at the top).
I encourage you to begin by starting at the top-level study first, which is the Introduction to the Golden Ratio Format of the Bible. This study lays the groundwork that is necessary to understand everything else that you find in the other lower-level format studies. You will have to accept some things by faith at first, because I cannot provide an encyclopedic answer to every question on such a high level. When you get to the lower-level studies, especially on the individual Books, most of those questions will be resolved.
