When God sets in His Word a pattern, He has a reason. The reason is so that, we will look for the clues, andlike Sherlock Holmes, we unravel the cryptogram in His Word to see His fingerprints on all of creation.

Once we have accepted the fact that God is the author and finisher of all things inside and outside of time and space, and then we realize that nothing is by coincidence. Everything is by 'God-incidence'.

'God-incidences' happen because He is God and simply He can do it, but never does He break or contradict His dynamics. On the following page are the seven factors that control all factors.

About the author (2009)

Dr. Ian Traill is a missionary to China where he has been for the past 15 years.

Previously he had planted a Church in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia and now he is involved in planting Churches in China and developing Traillblazer, Tony Smits Bible College throughout the nation.

Arriving in August 2000 to take up a position teaching English at Universities and Colleges, working as a "tentmakers" ministry, he has been conducting Bible classes and training people in the area of leadership with the view of them starting their own home church. Ian has a strong desire to bring teaching to the people, thus he has written many books.

A missionary is one who is sent to cross over geographic and cross-cultural boundaries to plant the Word of God and a local church, thus establishing God’s culture in a new location. The Gospel of John clearly portrays Jesus as fulfilling the ministry of a missionary sent from God (John 3:17-34, 4:34, 5:23, 5:36-38, 6:29-57, 7:16-33, 8:16-42, 9:4, 10:36, 11:42, 12:44-49, and13:20). Jesus Christ came as a missionary to this world to save us, but non-Christians reading His story in a newspaper at that time, would say that He was a failure. We, of course, are aware He did not fail. It is because of His mission that we are here today, and it was through someone else that we heard about Jesus too. Faith comes by hearing the Word, but if there is no preacher how can people hear? So we are going to all nations.
