About the Book

God’s voice whispers through the words of the prophet, Isaiah, “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.”

Isaiah 46:10 NIV

When warning his disciples about heaven and earth passing away, Jesus said, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.” Mark 13:32-33 NIV

Are we to believe that God makes known the end from the beginning? Or, should we believe that the day and the hour are unknowable?

In truth, these seemingly contradictory verses in Scripture are equally believable when time is viewed on two different clocks. To date, however, humankind has relied solely on the 24-hour clock that secured residence within the human mind more than 8,000 years ago. Humanity’s one-clock perspective of time is entirely useless in determining spiritual beginnings and endings. Yet, a different perspective emerges from the text of Genesis 1 which does, in fact, make known the end from the beginning.

The Clock, revealed within the pages of this book, will help the human spirit develop a healthy theology of time—and not a moment too soon! Through the lens of light, color, and image, The Clock’s colorful face revisits the past, identifies the present, and makes known the future while orienting the human mind on its journey through time.

If Jews and Christians desire additional insight into our shared spiritual beginnings, we must discover The Clock in Genesis 1 and embrace a two-clock perspective of time. Once aware of a second timekeeping option, the mystery surrounding many end-times scenarios will be removed—enabling us to travel together with confidence into our projected future.

It’s time to understand the times!

About the Author

After twenty-two years of church ministry, as a director of music, art and theater, Ms. Wimmer sensed a call to remove herself from church leadership. In 1995, she resigned from the music ministry and waited for direction. Shortly thereafter, from 1996 to 2000, Ms. Wimmer experienced an intense time of spiritual instruction. The inspired insights opened the door to fresh theological perspectives in three areas of human concern: Time, Language, and the Organization of God’s people.

Believing that personal insight must be grounded in credible evidence, Ms. Wimmer entered the field of biblical research. From 2004 to 2009, she presented several academic papers at different regional and national meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature.

Ms. Wimmer believes that the kernels of wisdom, poured into her vessel many years ago, are intended to reorient the focus of the church of tomorrow. Therefore, she writes from a visionary and futuristic perspective. She shares her inspired perceptions in an effort to contribute something meaningful to the current dialogue regarding the present shift occurring within the church universal.

Ms. Wimmer lives in Tulsa, OK with her husband of forty-six years. In their free time, she and her husband enjoy gardening, carpentry, interior design, and renovating old or neglected houses. Together, they have two adult children and three grandchildren.
