Chuck Missler, whose military and business career spans decades, continents and industries, has reached a startling conclusion about the Bible. It's not from our "time domain."
In another word, it's "extraterrestrial."
He's created a video that provides the evidence.
"The Bible is incredible, and you can demonstrate it is of extraterrestrial original," he said in a Jan. 27 talk to the Christ's Commission Fellowship church.
The video has attracted attention already on the Internet.
Missler, a Naval Academy graduate and former branch chief of the Department of Guided Missiles, also has had a remarkable 30-year executive career, serving on the board of directors of 12 public companies and as CEO of six of them.
For 20 years he balanced his high-profile corporate career with his teaching commitment at a weekly Bible study at Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, Calif.
After a devastating earthquake in 1992 demolished their home in Big Bear, California, the couple moved Koinonia House to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and K-House now reaches tens of thousands through its monthly newsletter, radio shows, podcast, Bible study materials, and conferences. More than eight million Bible study resources have been distributed in the U.S. and in over 35 countries around the world.
"I get so tired of people who mean well and say you can't prove the Bible but then make some positive statement," Missler said. "Yes, you can."
The teaching lecture highlights some of the things Missler says God hid in the Bible but have been discovered.
For example, he cites some of the genealogies in the Old Testament, specifically the generations from Adam through Noah.
He explained there is a message in the sequence of the names Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech and Noah.
According to the associated letters in Hebrew alphabet, the names together say: "Man appointed mortal sorrow. Blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing comfort."
A miracle, he said.
"There's no other way to convince me that the complete Gospel message from the New Testament would have been included in the Old Testament by a bunch of Jewish rabbis," he said.
He described it as a supernatural document.
"Do you get the feeling God knows what he's doing? Get the feeling he's in control of every detail?" he asked.
"The more you study your Bible you'll see these connections."
