DOES THE Bible hold a hidden time code with the answers to some of life’s greatest questions, such as: “What is our destination?” and “When will we get there?”
In The Template of Time, Tom Payne draws on eight years of intensive research as he makes the case for a comprehensive, chronological study of the quirky time patterns scattered throughout the Bible that, when assembled, create an eternal template upon which history unfolds.
Just as atmospheric patterns suggest tomorrow’s weather forecast, the historical patterns of the template suggest future outcomes. As he follows the development of the Roman Empire and its prophesied conflict with the people of God, Payne shows that, as we approach the culmination of processes two thousand years in the making, everyone will be affected.
In the second hour, we discuss the rebranding of the occupation of Iraq, the reasons (or lack thereof) to remain in Afghanistan, rising war tensions in the Middle East, and why we talk so often about the Nephilim.
