This is an extraordinarily remarkable book that is endorsed by Jan Willem van der Hoeven, Stan Goodeough, and Chris Mitchell. The authors, Don Cobble and Mona Johnian, unveil many mysteries behind the creation of our world. Major topics within this book include: Archangels; Worship; Lucifer; The Kingdom of God; The Heart of God; Understanding the Mystery; and The Eternal Kingdom.
This paragraph from the book helps us to understand the authors’ focus in part: “Fallen human nature can be changed into the image of God. Before the foundations of the earth were laid, this was the plan: to have a kingdom of holy people, from His own blood, whose hearts and lives were blended with His.”
CBN journalist Chris Mitchell writes, “Don Cobble’s Before the Beginning of Our World: Unveiling the Mystery is an extraordinary work. Spiritually inspired and biblically based, it unveils God’s marvelous plan ‘before the foundation of the world’ and gives us great hope for the ages to come. It will bless you, encourage you, and help you realize the best is yet to come.”
Don Cobble is an international Bible teacher who has ministered for over thirty years, strongly emphasizing the integrity, authority, and necessity of the Hebrew Scriptures. He currently teaches and tapes weekly “The Ancient Call” web cast as well as “Judeo-Christian Training Center” training classes.
