"Although I'm blind, I can see far and wide; even though I'm disabled, I can climb high mountains." --Shirley Cheng "Let the ropes of hope in Jehovah haul you high!"
Is belief in God blind faith? No; faith in the one and only true God, whose name is Jehovah, is based on facts and undeniable evidences, one of which is the Bible.
The Bible is proven to be...
1) Historically accurate by historians and archeologists
Archeologists have unearthed evidences of certain people, places, and events described in the Bible.
2) Scientifically sound
The Bible stated certain scientific facts thousands of years before scientists proved them. No contradiction between Bible accounts and scientific facts exists.
Hundreds of prophecies in the Bible have been fulfilled exactly as they were foretold hundreds and thousands of years before the events actually took place. Only a handful of prophecies have not yet been fulfilled, and these prophecies surround the return of Jesus Christ and the beginning of our eternal life.
The ability to accurately prophesy events hundreds and thousands of years in advance is the striking trademark of the Bible, a feature unique only to this book.
Isaiah 13:19-20 accurately prophesied the eternal destruction of Babylon centuries before it happened. What was once the world power lies in ruins to this date, exactly as the Bible foretold. It was something unimaginable when the prophecy was given, because it is like saying that the crowded New York City or Shanghai will be totally uninhabited forever in a month from now. By whom the city would be initially conquered was foretold as well: Persian Emperor Cyrus (Isaiah 45). In addition, the Bible prophesied Cyrus releasing Israelites from Babylonian captivity to rebuild Jerusalem, and it came true (Isaiah 44:28).
Daniel 8:20-23 foretold the reigns of Media-Persia and then Greece, prophesying that four kingdoms would come from the first mighty king, Alexander the Great, after his death, and that those kingdoms wouldn't experience the power that the first king had. This prophecy was given during the reign of Babylon, centuries before Alexander the Great was born. (Also foretold in Daniel 11:3-4.)
Daniel 9:25 prophesied the exact year that Jesus would be anointed as the Messiah about 560 years in advance.
Daniel 11:6-35 foretold dozens of historical events concerning the Ptolemy and Antiochus rule and dynasties.
The book of Nahum foretold the eternal destruction of Nineveh, while the book of Obadiah prophesied the eternal destruction of Edom. All their prophecies came to pass.
These are just a small portion of Biblical prophecies that have been fulfilled to the letter.
Believing in Jehovah and His Son Jesus Christ and walking according to Jehovah's will is the only way to salvation (eternal life) for anyone who believes. Each person's eternal destiny is up to that person. Each of us has one decision to make: eternal life or eternal death?
Eternal life begins with the knowledge of Jehovah and Jesus, and that knowledge lies only in the Bible, the book Jehovah Himself wrote for our instructions and proper living. Please, if you haven't yet, pick up a copy of the Bible and start your journey into truly knowing God. The below Bible articles I've written will help you understand some of the important topics you will read about.

September 2009: Shirley's personal story is featured in the fall issue of Dr. Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Connection magazine in the article, "Getting to Know God" by Tom Hallman on page 50.
From the pages of Do You Love Jehovah?: As a result of the removal of God's name from most modern Bible versions, many people have automatically thought that I am a Jehovah's Witness just because I use God's name. This is a very sad outcome of man's disrespect of Jehovah. When we do not commemorate, honor, and use the name of God, we are going against His wishes. Regarding His name, Jehovah specifically said, “This is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” (Exodus 3:15, American Standard Version) So while I do not belong to the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses, I am an individual witness to Jehovah.

Cover depicts the vision of Jehovah God that the prophet Ezekiel saw as described in the Bible: “…the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone; and upon the likeness of the throne was a likeness as the appearance of a man upon it above. And I saw as it were glowing metal, as the appearance of fire within it round about, from the appearance of his loins and upward; and from the appearance of his loins and downward I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness round about him. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Jehovah.” (Ezekiel 1:26-28, American Standard Version)

"In poetic prose Shirley describes the nature of God and the character of Christ with clarity, emotion, and passion. She boldly addresses traditional church doctrine giving her own personal insight and interpretation logically, using a common sense analysis. She includes foundational doctrines for living the spiritual life courageously with determined intention. In a concise, yet complete, Bible summary, Cheng covers important events and a review of the important themes of the entire Bible from Genesis through Revelation." -Dr. Richard R. Blake for Reader Views, Doctor of Ministries, Former Instructor at Bay Cities Bible College
"...this book deserves to sit on the shelf next to the Bible...Shirley has all of the properties, emotions, logic and spiritual being that (Jehovah) was hoping to instill in each one of us.
Shirley may be in a wheelchair, but has walked the universe. She may be blind but see's the true color and beauty in the world, the people and in life. Shirley has found a way in her writing, to open our eyes to the world around us, the blessings bestowed upon us, the path to follow and the life that is yet to come." -Jan Hayner, Professional Organizer, Motivational Speaker and Personal Coach, www.OrganizingAndCleaning.com
"(Shirley) could preach a sermon with the best of the 18th century preachers." -Laura Evans, United Methodist Church Pastor's Wife, Certified Instructor Journal to the Self®, www.JournalJoy.com (site up in September)
(Shirley's) ability to express her feelings, knowledge, and passion come through so clear in her writing--it is obvious she was born to teach and change people's lives.
Her grassroots story telling makes this book an excellent read for individuals who haven't made the time to read the Bible. She has clear and concise ability to pin-point the most meaningful and beneficial points to live by through the word of God.
Shirley's courage is contagious and I am envious of her passion and simplicity to explain her thoughts of faith in such a crisp and knowledgeable fashion. Shirley is a true leader where so many individuals fear to walk; a courageous teacher, her wisdom is fraught with urgency to reach others and spread her given talent. Where people lack to express their true feelings of God; Shirley's courageous soul is free to articulate her acknowledged belief system without judgment. I honor her experience of the Bible and respect her aptitude to express her commitment to God.
This book would benefit anyone who has feelings of loss, loneliness, anger, selfishness, and low self worth.
Great for children to learn the foundation their life was built upon." -Trish Lay, Life Coach, Speaker, Founder of Souls At Play Productions, www.SoulsAtPlayProductions.com
"...a Christian inspirational guide encouraging readers to look towards God for the guidance and help in their lives...well worth considering for Christian readers." -Midwest Book Review, Small Press Bookwatch
"Jehovah is not about a new shiny car or winning a political election, Jehovah is about eternal love and goodness for all. He wants nothing more for this world that He created than a spiritual balance and harmony.
Shirley Cheng's hopes are in passing to her readers an insight to a deeper knowledge of God's Word and Plan and also just maybe answer questions we all have pondered such as these:
• Have you ever wandered about the bible and its meaning?
• Why should I follow Jehovah's guidance and not some other religion?
• Who is really Jesus and what is his purpose?
• If Jesus already died for us, then why are we still being told we have a judgment day?
• Do you think we are predestined?
• Do you value your gift as it was meant to be valued?
• Is there really a hell or a devil?
• Who is Satan and his fallen angels?
• What is the meaning behind the 10 Commandments?
• Why is there so much suffering allowed in this world?"
-Dorothy Lafrinere, Women's Self-Esteem Expert, www.WomensSelfEsteem.com
"...a treasure of real answers that offer each of us a wonderful hope...a compelling read to move us to our part in the Divine purpose...a thorough witness to our Grand God, Jehovah." -Susanne Morrone, C.N.C. Author, Consultant, www.NaturalHealthChat.com
"[Shirley's) common sense analysis of the Bible will shock mainstream Christianity. She arouses logical questions and presents answers based on the Bible..." -Maria D. Georga, MBA, Author of Killing the Cancer Beast, Greece, http://FreeSpiritWay.blogspot.com
"The dedication, the love, the joy and happiness which radiates from Shirley Cheng's writing is so pure, so inspiring, so enchanting that I must compare it to the beauty in The Song of Solomon." -Ragnhild Munck, Author of Days of Goodbyes, www.DaysOfGoodbyes.com
"Shirley Cheng writes in the same manner she lives life: courageously. She is not afraid to tackle the tough questions we ask when we study the Bible, and she is not afraid to present the answers she finds therein. She doesn't worry about popularity or critics; she is all about the questions, the logic, and the Scriptures, as she understands them." -Carolyn Warren, Author, Mortgage & Credit Expert, www.AskCarolynWarren.com
"Shirley Cheng's book is elegantly written. With simplicity and competence she answers the most important questions every human being sooner or later asks him/herself. Her faith in God, who she teaches us to call Jehovah, and her deep knowledge of the Bible, guides her pen and offers explanations to colossal mysteries such as the purpose of life, the place of worry, the value of success, the meaning of death, what is destiny. But most of all, I would recommend this reading, because of the joy of life and the gratitude she transfused in the book. At times, I felt the need to kneel in front of such total deep happiness, coming from a person that knows suffering very well. Now, in times of crisis, we only hear lamentations. Read this book and you will learn how to thank God for every breath we take each day." -Maria Caterina Capurro, Life, Business & Sports NLPTM Coach, Italy, www.CoachingServices.it
"Anyone facing life's adversities, uncertain and looking for encouragement, hope, a pathway to faith and a spiritual connection, MUST read this book." -Gladys M. Anderson, M.Ed., CTACC, LMFT, Empowerment Coach, www.CoachForYourDreams.com

Moreover, she stands as a beacon of light, a shining example to everyone, that no matter what excuses we may think we have, we can still walk in the path of righteousness." -Bill White, The Synchronicity Expert, www.SynchronicityInYourLife.com
"Shirley Cheng in deciding to write about a sometimes difficult subject to get the regular person to read about, has done so in a simple yet powerful way. Anyone wondering about Scripture or going through reading the Scriptures themselves can benefit by experiencing Shirley's views." -Liz Cosline, Author, Life Ownership Coach, http://SongOfOneUnexpectedLife.info
