The King James Bible

King James Bible – the Authorized Version

If God’s Word is infallible, then which version is it? No other version of bible protrays the amount of wisdom, understanding, enlightenment, and defense of false doctrine as the King James version. Mjultiple versions of the English bible exist, but only the King James is unpatented.

Volumes of works have been written to prove the validity of the King James over the other versions. The bible says the words of God are pure words purified as silver tried in a furnace. The separating and purifying of precious metals from other metals is called refining. The word “tried” in Hebrew, means “to be refined, to be tested”. The bible says we received the word of God, not by men but as it is in truth.

The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Psa 12:6

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. 1Th 2:13

If there are multiple translations of the bible into more “modern” words as translated by men, then how can the words be pure and as it is in truth?

The following is just but one example of how the other translations fall short of the KJV, but is powerful enough to give the reader pause for concern and show the KJV is the Authorized Version.

John tells us to try the spirits and that every one that denies that Christ came in the flesh belongs to the spirit of the antichrist.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 1 John 4:1-6

As a believer, we know that Christ(God) did come in the flesh and dwell among men. The key verse to understanding this and the spirit of the antichrist is as follows:

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 1Jo 5:7

Here is what the other versions say in comparison. In sync with the spirit of the antichrist, they deny that Christ came in the flesh with the exception of the NKJV, but its’ legitimacy should also be taken with a grain of salt.

1 John 5:7 KJV NIV NLT ESV HCSB NASB RSV ASV NET
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. For there are three that testify: So we have these three witnesses For there are three that testify: For there are three that testify For there are three that testify And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify

Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou? Ecc 8:4

 

 

Where is the promise of his coming?

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:4-5.

In recent years, Hollywood has made a few movies mocking the Rapture while the secular society has made a laughing stock of it. But, make no mistake, the promise of His coming is the Blessed Hope, His glorious appearing.

Now, in a recent survey of 1,000 senior Protestant pastors, only 36% believe in the per-tribulation rapture of the church while 25% believe it is not to be taken literally. In all, a full two thirds have a different view of what the bible teaches confirming just as the bible teaches of the last days scoffers.

surveyOther topics were also survey in the SURVEY. Confusion of all types is prevalent in the world today and so it is among the church; confirming that we are that much closer to the end. In a sense, all things continue as they were and will until He takes us home. Jesus said that Himself. You can read more about that in this post –

Cancer – A Great Deception

Jesus said “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Mat. 7:13-14.

In other words, few will find the gate to Salvation because they refuse the truth and follow the crowd. The same principle applies to just about any area in life where Satan can cause a deception, but the truth is always there for those who seek it.

Don’t be caught in the lies that surround cancer; claiming millions of lives unnecessarily every year. I lost my mother to cancer 14 years ago and wish I knew the truth then. If you have or know someone that has cancer, the truth is available in the link below. Sign up to watch the free 9 part series that begins April 12th “The Truth About Cancer”. I had previously purchased the DVD set and watched them. Now they are free. Don’t miss the truth.

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Pro 4:7

The Exodus

The Exodus is arguably one of the greatest incidents in the history of the world. Do you believe it happened?

Science, medical fields, and others are constantly re-evaluating new discoveries and information; changing the academia as it comes in. But in the world of history, rarely does anything change. Perhaps until now…

Follow the quest of one mans journey to find the truth about the Exodus. A faith building adventure not to be missed. Have historians and archaeologist mistakenly placed the dates of the Exodus in the wrong time period? Watch the 2 hour film “Patterns of Evidence” and decide. The new evidence for the time period and the Exodus itself is riveting!

If you have Netflix, you can catch it there or at the website. Watch the trailers below.

Patterns of Evidence

Moses_2_burning_bush

And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.Ex. 3:7-10.

 

Merry Christmas

This is a moving story on how two Muslim women came to know Jesus. Thank you God for the birth of your Son, Jesus!

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; Heb 10:12

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matthew 5:43-44

When will Jesus Return?

That is the burning question in the back of every watchful Christian’s mind. When will He return? To get a better understanding of His 2nd coming, we must first look to circumstances surrounding His first coming.

We must first recognize His 2nd coming will consist of two events. The first is the Rapture, before the Tribulation, and the 2nd is His Physical return to Earth after the Tribulation on a White horse with all the saints behind Him. His first coming consisted of two events, His birth and the beginning of His ministry at age 30. At His birth there was “no room” for Him and He came in the “darkness of the night”.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. Luke 2:7-9

Does anyone have “room” for Jesus today? Has not the light of the church grown dimmer and dimmer? Jesus was also born into a generation that was unsuspecting of Him as seen in Matthew 2 when the wise men show up at the temple looking for the King.

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. Mat. 2:2-3

How many Christians today are truly expecting Him? Prior to His birth, there was 400 years of famine for the Word of God (400 years between the book of Malachi and Matthew) prophesied in Amos.

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: Amos 8:11

Is there not a famine of God’s Word today? The are multiple versions of bibles on the market, many with verses deleted or changed from the original creating much confusion. The tried and true un-copyrighted King James 1611 Bible just recently turned 400 years old…..

Today’s world of instant information has given us a mental image of a chaotic life, an image of destruction, an image of fear, all in the anticipation that the foundations of the world will break down at any moment leading to Tribulation. But if we are honest, it is just that, a mental image. The quality of life today around most of the world is the best it has been since the creation of man. Don’t believe that, then pick another time period of history you would rather live in than now. Hopefully you will see the point I am trying to make in a minute.

Jesus said in Matthew 24:

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Everything we see today is the same that has been throughout history since Jesus made this statement…..except…..the convergence of all these events for the first time that we see clearly in the mental image of instant information painted by the media, will lead to the Tribulation at some point in the very near future.

Still don’t see it? Look at the Bubonic Plague of the middle ages that took the lives of some 75 to 200 million people. Look at the atrocities of Vlad the Impaler, Genghis Khan, Stalin, Hitler, and many others. Countless millions were murdered under their vicious reign.  The 2004 Indian earthquake and resulting tsunami killed 230,000 people in one day. 9/11 lost over 3,000 lives in one day. One could continue on and one, but hopefully you see where this is headed.

Now to my point. Jesus said life would be just another ordinary day when He returns the 2nd time. Look what He says still in Matthew 24:

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

This passage does not speak to the Tribulation, but the Rapture. Look again. If this were just a very chaotic world, much less a world of Tribulation, people would not be “eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage“, people would not be working the field or grinding at the mill during just another day at work; they would be running for their lives. Life was normal until Noah entered the Ark. Life will be normal until the Rapture. I did not say it; He did. Jesus says more:

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Clearly we are commanded to watch for He will come when we think not, in other words, just another ordinary day and He will come for His church.

Remember the events of September 2015 with the Blood Moons and the Shemitah? It was perhaps the most anticipated and covered events out of the Biblical academia concerning the end times. Even the secular community was aware of them, but the events came and went without even a whimper. That is not to nullify their importance, for their significance will be revealed in the Lord’s timing.

Since these events, I am sure many are now saying:

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

The Blessed Hope is not called Blessed for nothing. It is the Hope of the Blessing to be removed before the real ugliness starts at a time when “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:26 and at a time when at least 1/2 to 2/3rds of the worlds population will die.

Don’t let the spirit of the Antichrist rob you from the joy of life, the Joy of Christ, as he has done to so many already in these final days.

Jesus is still coming……

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Titus 2:13

 

Truth

Truth – what is it? Perhaps the best way to define it is “the property of being in accord with fact or reality” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/truth). Truth is the opposite of a lie or false representation. Truth is tangible as in 2 + 2 will always = 4 or touching fire with your bare hand will result in pain; it produces the same result each and every time. The same cannot be said of a lie. Truth is the enemy of the enemy. 

People in today’s world of self indulgence and zombie attitude have blurred the lines between truth and a lie in just about every aspect of life. The bible says “that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”. 1 Tim. 3:1-5. Can that be any more evident than it is today??

Each of the 4 gospels describes Jesus as one of the 4 distinct aspects of His being. The Gospel of John describes Him as the “Son of God”. The word “truth” in the Gospel of John is used in 22 verses for a total of 27 times. In Jhn 8:32, Jesus said “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free“. I thank God I know the truth, for I am truly free.

In biblical numbers 22 represents “spiritual light”. Matthew 22 and Genesis 22 display this while the 22nd book of the bible is Songs, a book about an intimate relationship between two people. The number 27 represents “Holy truth” and can be seen in Matthew 27 and Genesis 27. Daniel is the 27th Book of the Bible. Daniel was told what was in the “scripture of TRUTH” (Dan 10:21). There are 27 books in the New Testament and they reveal the whole Truth of Jesus Christ.

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 1 Jo. 2:21-22.

There is only good or evil, the truth or a lie, and that is the truth.

Arthur Schopenhauer Mark Twain

And finally, the Truth that can set you free, the Truth seen in the shape of a cross.
