You were created with a great purpose–to become the bride of Messiah and enter into the family of the one and only god, Elohim. But to be the bride, you must first understand who the savior Jesus, more aptly named Yahushua, truly is. For centuries Christian have allowed tradition to color their reading of the scriptures and have translated important passages using words that aren’t wholly accurate. One of the most debated biblical interpretations is the dual nature of Jesus. Is he god or is he man, for how can he possibly be both? If you knew Messiah was entirely human, how would you live? This book, by Gilbert W. Olson, Th.D., will answer these and many other questions related to the nature of Jesus.

God In Man, God’s Plan of Incarnation
“Why am I here?” “Why did God create me?” Gilbert Olson, Th. D., shows from scripture the answer. God created us to live in us, that his pure, selfless nature become our nature. As he was in the man Yahushua (Hebrew for Jesus), so he wants to be in the church, in you, in me. That is the purpose of creation. That is why God made us. The English word for “God in man” is “incarnation.”
God fully lived in his Son so that to see the Son is to see the Father. He wants to live in us the same way. Yahushua, a man, is the pattern. This is God’s plan of incarnation. This is God’s plan for you. Note this prayer of Yahushua:
“that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:21)
If you want to understand what born again means; if you are fed up with the worldliness in the church; if you want to become what God created you to be; if you want to become the pure, spotless bride for whom Christ is coming; if you want to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and your neighbor as yourself-then this book is for you.
Being born again is being born from above. It is the most wonderful thing in all of life, for you receive God’s life in you. But what is it, how do you get it, what does it do for you, and what is its purpose? Few Christians have any idea. For many it just means believing in Jesus and going to church, and you can still live your life any way you want, but you escape hell and go to heaven. Such thinking is way off the mark and misses the life God has for you.
Being born again is only the beginning of the journey. The goal is to be changed from loving self first to loving the Father first. He created us to have his nature of selfless love, that we bear his image and likeness. Those who don’t pursue this will be rejected at the final judgment.
How would you live if you knew you could lose your salvation? How would you live if you knew that you could overcome all sin in your life? How would you live if you loved the Father with every fiber of your being? How would you live if you loved him more than yourself or anyone or anything else?
This is the path to becoming the bride, the company of believers for whom Messiah is coming in the event called the rapture, being snatched from earth to heaven without dying. This book outlines the steps in that path and explains the various aspects of what born again is all about. The path is difficult and the gate is narrow. Only a few are willing to pay the cost of dying to self to qualify, but anyone can be among that few. This book shows how-it is both a manual on born again, and a call to wake up from sleep and rise to the call of the bride.
In the Beginning
A Typological Commentary
Through story-telling, commentary, typology and exhortation you will find answers to questions such as: Why did our Father create the way he did? Why six days of creation with a seventh day of rest? What do the lives of Adam, Eve, Cain, Abel and the others in Genesis tell us about his plan of creation and redemption?
The book of Genesis is the foundation for the rest of the scriptures. In it we see the origin of man and the universe, and the fall of man and the origin of sin. We find why men are evil and cruel to one another, and why nations are at war. We also see our own condition and the struggles inside of us. More importantly, we see the remedy for sin through the sinless man, the last Adam, Jesus Christ—from Paradise lost to Paradise regained. The book of Genesis helps us understand all the rest of the scriptures.

The Book of Revelation
The Book of Revelation takes the reader through the history of the church from Pentecost to the future bride of Messiah on the new earth. In it we see that the creator Father and his son the Messiah are fully in control of everything that happens. We see the bride inside the harlot woman, which is the world system of false religion, economics and politics, also called Babylon. We see the call to the bride to come out of her, to come out of worldliness and pagan traditions, that she not share in her judgment. We see her, a minority of the church, coming out as a mature male son walking in righteousness and in the miracle power of Messiah to bring in the last-day harvest of souls, and by so doing to bring the antichrist plan of world government to a halt. And we see her snatched up to heaven, called the rapture,.
The bulk of visions is about the seven years of tribulation on the earth under the rule of the antichrist world government after the rapture. The first half is upon the lukewarm believers: they either take the 666 Mark of the Beast and lose their salvation, or are martyred. The second half is upon the world, ending with the coming of Messiah to begin his 1,000 year rule.
This book takes the reader through Apocalypse verse by verse to unveil the meanings of the visions.
THIS BOOK HAS TWO PURPOSES. The first is to help those who are unfamiliar with the scriptures to become familiar with them. Sadly, very few today, including those who go to church, have even a basic understanding of the Bible.
The second purpose of this book is to inspire the reader to develop a hunger for the word of our Father so that you grow and change to be like him.
All scripture is Elohim-breathed and is useful for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of Elohim may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2Ti 3:16-17).
We each were created to do good works, works the Father calls good (Eph 2:10).
For we are his workmanship, created in Messiah Yahushua to do good works, which Elohim prepared in advance that we should walk in them (Eph 2:10).
Jesus commanded us to be perfect/complete as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48). The only way to obey this command is by living in the spirit of God. In ourselves we cannot be perfect, for we are created incomplete. We can only be complete when God lives in us so that he lives his life through us. This is his plan for man, that we live and move as one (John 17:21-23).
These believers, the ones who are living in the spirit, are the bride of Messiah, that company of believers who are without spot or blemish or any such thing and are reaching out to others to join them.
We are in the last days before the rapture in which Messiah catches out his bride to meet him in the air. There is an urgency to repent and be ready. Hard sayings are made clear. The kingdom is intense; therefore, so is this book. Be inspired. Be changed.
