Amazing Grace!

Reflections

Raymond E. Turner, Ph.D., Educator, Scientist, Minister, and Military Officer

In my early life I knew the power of God. My mother raised me to worship God and fear his wrath. On the other hand, I knew that God loved me unconditionally. Equipped with the knowledge that God would not desert me, I went through hard times, which include the Vietnam War, post-tramic stress, and struggles in New York City. My story is about a life with a purpose only realized in retrospect.  That is what happens when you feel led by a “Force” greater than yourself. You just keep the faith through it all.  Looking back I see the role God played in bringing me home from the Vietnam War, in pushing me toward excellence while being my anchor during the stormy times. Nothing good in my life came easy, but like many New York transplants, I persisted.  To be sure, the journey was more than worthwhile. Thanks to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his amazing grace through it all. 

My Testimony

Praise God for his eternal love and faithfulness. Praise God for his omnipresence because his Word is everlasting and true. Praise God for revealing who he is through his gospel of Jesus Christ (Yeshua). Throughout the ages our creator and redeemer left “hidden messages” in the things that are made (Hebrews 11:3) including us. Tragically, we strayed from truth and plunged into sin and death. Thanks to God for giving us a Savior. Jesus said, “if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).  It is clear that all things consist in Christ (1Colossians 1:17). From the beginning God uses biblical types, rituals, shadows, patterns, and prophetic visions to tell us that Jesus Christ is all in all (1Colossians 3:11). He is the one and the Father has put all things under his feet. As “Lord of Lords” and “King of Kings”, he shall rule forever and his kingdom will have no end.

Thank you Jesus for revealing to me that the Gospel is in us. Through science and the wisdom you have given me I proclaim your name around the globe. Truly there is no other name in heaven or in the earth whereby we must be saved than “Jesus Christ and him crucified” (Acts 4:12).  Consider the name that is above all names. The hebrew name for God is HaShem (translates “the name”). Interestingly, his name is an acronym for the “biomatrixgenesis” of the HA veil (HA synthases and hyaluronidases form the extracellular matrix).


Be that as it may, there is a “messianic skit” in blood where biomolecules are the players. Truly, the life of the flesh is in the blood, but it is the Spirit who gives life (Leviticus 1:17, John 6:63). The script, DNA, is written by the “Word of God”. Original man is merely an image of his creator formed from the dust of the earth (Genesis 1:27). The breath of life–due to sin–will loose its power. We will die. However, the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead is within us, the living temple (1 Cor. 3:16). Thanks to God–he restores my soul! DNA  codes for the stitching together of our veil, which  embroiders “proof of the Gospel”.  However, it is the Spirit who directs. Perhaps my personal belief in the “Word” and my scientific prowess are spirit driven. In any case, irrefutable “proof of the Gospel” during these end times appears to be preordained. Only God could have dictated such timeless patterns  within the veil over three thousand years ago. This veil hung in the Hebrew temple, but also hangs in us, the living temple of God (Hebrew 10:20). After accepting the blood of Jesus, God tore the veil in two.  Praise God the gates are open!  Our souls can now enter holy places.

Ministry

“The Spirit, The Water, and The Blood are One” on earth (1John 5:8).  That said, the study of life on earth is unprofitable in the absence of divine inspiration. It is through divine inspiration that the written word of God is the “book of life“. Science then is merely a useful method for us to discovery our creator and his creations. Be that as it may, theobiology is the vehicle this author uses to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the globe. My escape from death in Vietnam and my rise through the military and academic ranks led me to a unique place. Blessed and equipped with a Ph.D. in chemistry, I began to connect the biblical description of the temple veil to the biomaterial veil found in biological tissue. Also molecular modeling data agree with my research, which proves that hyaluronic acid (HA) forms Ezekiel´s wheels. Together with other evidence, I felt the need to break away from traditional research and accept this calling to the ministry. Therefore, let me be clear. When God calls, I listen. While he left us his written word and his Spirit within us, we are born into flesh bodies (the veil) with original sin. So, despite our extraordinary worldly knowledge, true wisdom originates from the throne of God. My brothers and sisters humble yourselves now and invite Christ into your life. Finally, like Apostle Paul, I determined not to know anything except Jesus Christ and him crucified (1 Cor. 2:2). What amazing grace!

Amen and Amen!
