This book has been a life-time quest to understand why God created man and what God is after. It all started in March 1946 when I accepted Jesus Christ as LORD of my life. For sixty-two years I have diligently studied the Bible and sought to find out and to understand What Is God Up To? In December 2004, the LORD awakened me in the night and gave me the outline for the book, GOD HAS A PLAN AND A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE, which was published in February 2006. On the morning of May 31, 2006, while in prayer, the LORD gave me the outline for this book that endeavors to answer the questions: WHAT IS GOD UP TO? WHY EARTH? WHY ETERNITY? I was to prepare a comprehensive study of the Biblical prophets and to correlate all they prophesied in a chronological order that would be related to Earths history and eternity. Oliver E.
