It is my hope these books have enlightened those that have read it and their perspective on God’s Word.

These three books are similar to the sides of a prism.

Merriam-Webster defines a prism as:

  • a medium that distorts, slants, or colors whatever is viewed through it
  • a transparent glass or plastic object that usually has three sides and that separates the light that passes through it into different colors
  • a transparent object that usually has three sides and bends light so that it breaks up into rainbow colors MW61

The perspectives gained through reading these books are not to distort or slant one’s understanding, but to correct it and provide the various colors like the rainbow, which is God’s Word.

In Matthew 5:31-32, Jesus corrected the distorted or slanted understanding that developed about divorce.

“It was said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to commit adultery. And whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery. M410

The lens that we use to read scripture sometimes is the lens that someone else, other than the Holy Spirit gave us. When we read and understanding scripture this way, we lean on the understanding and the doctrines of man.

In John 14:25-26, Jesus says,

“I have spoken these things to you while I am still with you. But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. M411

Sometimes along the path, we may have forgotten the meaning of what’s being said, and then the Holy Spirit will come along and remind us of everything said and written.

The direct translation of the word prism in Greek means ‘something sawed.’ OR2

When white light enters a prism, it is then sawed into the colors of the rainbow. Likewise, these three books, like the three sides on a prism, produces a rainbow of color when the light of God shines upon it.

May God’s glory be revealed through the Holy Spirit and His son Jesus Christ who is the light of this world, when the revelations of these three books are understood.

In Matthew 5:14-16, Jesus tells us.

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a basket, but on a candlestick. And it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven. M412

The time has come for the children of God to shine, and may these revelations be a foundation they can build upon, as the times are upon us.

These are the words in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10.

Concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that I write to you. For you know perfectly that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. When they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all the sons of light and the sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as others do. But let us be alert and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we should live together with Him. M413
