Hi, my name is Dan. I am so grateful to be able to bring to you this online tool for sharing the Gospel during this COVID-19 pandemic (or any time for that matter).
BibleTimeLines.com was created with the intention of it being a free Bible-based resource for Christians of all denominations. The focus of BibleTimeLines.com is only on Jesus, and its primary purpose is to encourage a closer relationship with Him.
Most people would say that BibleTimeLines.com was my brain child, but our Bible tells us something different.
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
This verse tells us that BibleTimeLines.com was planned and designed by God long before I was born. I find it more than just interesting when I look back at how this website was ready and waiting when COVID-19 came along. It’s nothing short of awe-inspiring! God knew that personal witnessing would become harder and harder, and that another form of witnessing would be needed.
When I was about 42, or so, I recall listening to a popular radio preacher say something that was very unbiblical. That started a series of questions that I asked myself about my own beliefs, about how a person knew if the Bible was totally correct, and how a Christian could “prove” these things to himself and to others.
It took me 5 years to answer all of those questions, and one question specifically, how to prove that the Bible had not been changed within the last several hundred years.
Once I answered that last question I started thinking of a way to show graphically what happens to a person when they die (based entirely on the Bible). I made an 11 foot paper timeline with freezer paper, pen and colored markers, but of course I had a very hard time getting copies made. Each copy cost me $11, which of course is very cheap today, but it really bothered me because I wanted a way to reach more people, but even though I asked many people for ideas on how to accomplish this, I got nowhere.
Then we were forced to move to another town, and it turned out that our new pastor knew exactly what to do. He suggested that it would be very easy to put it online. I had never considered such a thing, nor had I ever made a single webpage, so I was still stuck, but he actually showed me how to do it and gave me a little space on his church website. This was in about 2001 and the 600 + webpages that you see today grew from that.
Our Creator God is truly a wise and AWESOME God! He is never caught off guard; He is always ready. BibleTimeLines.com is just another example of His wisdom. All honor and praises are His!
Thank you for using and sharing His website!
