"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

The Chamberlain Key

Soon after I began reading The Chamberlain Key by Timothy P. Smith I thought of a verse in the Bible: And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: Acts 2:1
Timothy P. Smith reveals he was drawn to the Bible (in Hebrew) by a similarity that he and his father shared (combined) with Jacob, as they had a total of 12 sons and two daughters.  Well, they are kind of similar to Jacob. Jacob had 12 sons and one daughter with two wives and two handmaidens of his wives.  This common ground made Mr. Smith look to the specific passages in Genesis 30 and saw his name (in Hebrew) and saw patterns using equidistance.    

I need to define equidistance: Literally evenly spaced. Distant by equal amounts from two or more points. 1

Actually as the book moves forward, Mr. Smith’s wife’s name including her maiden name are in the same equidistance and specialists have ruled that this could not be possible unless it was meant to be there. The author kept his wife’s name private so it isn’t easy to see the connection, but I do respect his option to keep her name private.  The book reveals other things as well, to include the Messiah long before the New Testament.  I agree with The Chamberlain  Key on this point as John 1:1 this is affirmed: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God

I think that we live in times revealed in the Bible and that Acts 2:17 is so foretelling of what is going on.  I also believe: For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14, and that Mr. Smith has an opportunity to take this calling and really press forward with the Truth.  

I was fortunate enough to be able to interview Timothy P. Smith via Facebook.  Here is one of the questions I asked Mr. Smith, 
How has your faith changed/or did it, since you began this journey with the dreams, and discovering the code?  With this question,  besides the book, have you taken to witnessing in your day to day life? I most certainly do not mean like we see on TV with the in your face preaching. 
Timothy P. Smith replied, 
Regarding my faith....I am so much more open to believing out of the box, I am more in tune with the beauty of God's infinite creativity, His love is manifested in such a personal way.  Ask...Seek...Knock...Never underestimate His desire to communicate with all of us at whatever way that draws us closer to Him. The truth is that I am overwhelmed by His love.  I am a very inquisitive person...I want to understand truth..and realize that in my short time on earth I am not going to figure it all out alone.  I need guidance. Sometimes this comes from other people. A self taught man has a fool for a teacher. I hope all things..I believe all things. Given my experiences I will never underestimate God's desire to guide us through the darkness that we all find ourselves in at times. Never give in to fear.... Fear of ridicule or embarrassment...Fear of failure...Fear of being judged. The things that I relate in my book happened as I related them...Do I completely understand them? No.  But I am putting them on the table for a witness. Perhaps it will mean something to someone today....maybe many years from now.  BTW..what is being discovered recently about the ancient Hebrew alphabet is astonishing. 
I was thankful for his perspective and honesty on how he believes he changed as a result of the events of the book.  I also believe very much that the Creator wishes to draw each and every one of us closer to him. When Timothy responded not to give in to fear, no matter the reason, I was quite moved.  This solid response to my question has lead me to ponder things more deeply about the book.  I am a Bible believing person. I have shared my faith often on this blog.  I do believe that in the end times God has promised to unlock things and an awakening of His people will occur. 

I think that The Chamberlain Key was a good read.  In fact, I read it in a few hours as I could not put it down.  Do I think I understand what Timothy P. Smith uncovered?  No, and since I am not even remotely comfortable reading or speaking Hebrew, I am one that must sit and ponder the book as it is written.  I will close with this, I believe that the Bible is the Word of God.  I believe that each of us should take the time to unlock it by simply opening the pages and reading it, daily, often and with a sincere heart.

To Timothy P. Smith, I wish to thank you for the time you gave me in my questioning, and for the opportunity to read your book.
