The Good Friday and Easter myths, which is built upon bold deceptions and subtle inconsistencies. These are quite prominent distortions, happily accepted by the majority of the people, tolerated by those that should know better and kept alive by the majority of church organisations because the lie is more convenient to a liar than the truth. That the Christ of the bible, the truth, was a deceiver is subtly insinuated due to the desire not to rock the boat of popular opinion. Through this the Roman Catholic tradition and her continual influence on her daughters is maintained (The Roman Catholic church is the mother of harlots; those protestant churches that broke away from her since the early 17 century are her children. Many of them still continuing with the tradition of making commercial gain from the trappings of religion.) The teaching that Christ was crucified on Good Friday and rose from the dead on Easter morning is an erroneous teaching subscribed to by most modern churches. This teaching which opposes the Bible teaching that our Lord was crucified on the Jewish preparation day and died around three o’ clock, which is the 9th hour of the day, a few hours before the Jewish Passover as the lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world, John chapter 19 verse14 pins down the specific Jewish festival for all to see: And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he (Governor Pilate,)saith unto the Jews, Behold your King. Christ as he had continually promised, spent three days and three nights dead, that is body, soul and spirit perfectly separated in three different places; his battered body was placed in the new tomb of Joseph of Arimithiah. Jesus was careful to commit his Spirit into the safe keeping of his father’s hands in heaven as Luke in chapter 23 and verse 46 was mindful to inform us: And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit”: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost and his Soul went to hell via paradise as Luke chapter 23 verse 43 confirms: And Jesus said unto him, this making reference to the promise made to one of the thieves hanging on the cross beside him: Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. But you may wonder how can we be so sure that his soul went to hell, that place of torments reserved for the Devil and his angels? Acts chapter 2 verses 24-27 nails it down leaving no doubt when we are told: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Ephesians 4:8-10 summarizes the progression of deliverence: Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

(Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 1 Peter 4:6 For this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. Jesus, the man, after spending 72 hours in the heart of the earth rose from the dead Saturday evening when the end of the Jewish weekly Sabbath drew near.

Introduction          

Romans chapter 12 verses 1& 2: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

For this Year 2011 the leadership of the Ellerton Wesleyan Holiness church has chosen to go forward with using the theme ‘Living the life of Sacrifice’ which theme is built on that of the previous year ‘living the disciplined life’. God’s people, from the beginning of time have been required and at various times down through the years, not only to make sacrifices of one kind or another but believe it or not to be sacrificed; Romans chapter 8 verse 36: As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. So when we are called upon to be sacrificial in our lifestyle, this theme fits in perfectly with our faith as handed down through the years to us.

Many of us, in a detached sort of way, have no problem with this concept of sacrifice provided it be of limited discomfort, within our control and does not significantly impact on our day to day life. However the reality of saints living daily in a hostile, ungodly and to make matters worse religious environment is such that the sacrifice that we would be required to make, to make a difference is often a higher cost than we would chose to pay so compromise is a more preferred choice.

Holding a biblical position on issues that require us to take an unpopular stand instead of drifting with the tide can cause us to end up on the wrong side of popular opinion. While we know that the world and the worldly will resent our stand, the pray is that by the grace of God they will respect us enough not to burn us at the stake or feed us to the lions as was done in the past to thousands of saints.

The Church, as we all should know, began with the most prominent, priceless and potent sacrifice in the history of the human race when Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, was condemned by the Jewish religious crowd and crucified by the Roman rulers on the cross at a place called Calvary; one man laying down his life for the whole world.

Relevance & Efficacy

Sacrifice therefore, has to be taken in the proper perspective in order to understand its relevance and appreciate its efficacy. One of the best ways to do this, I have found, is to view it from the vantage point of bible history.

Bible history states that God made man in his likeness and after his image from the dust of the ground on the sixth day of the week of creation. When, however it was time to get him a help meet, he did not go back to the dust of the ground but instead he went into the body of the man and removed one rib. Because of the giving up, the sacrifice if you please, of this rib we have the crowning off of this glorious day of creation, the coming into being of this most irresistible creature; the woman Eve causing Adam to declare “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” This also allowing God to proclaim that this day’s work was not only good but very good.

This most attractive bride of Adam soon encountered the diabolical attention of the subtle Serpent who was able to trick her into picking and eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil that would bring sure death.

Enter the deceiver

The convicting argument that the serpent was able to put forward to Eve, the bride of Adam, when he the flatly suggest that God was less than sincere when he had promised sure death as a result of eating the fruit of this tree in the middle of the garden was at the heart of the deceit that led to this most pivotal event in the history of the human race for she believed him rather than God.

Adam then expecting the worse after she picked the fruit and ate it chose to take on the role of saviour of his dying bride whom he must have loved with an unspeakable love when he casually, deliberately without any temptation ate of the forbidden fruit of sure death and sacrificed the comfort of a perfect and secure environment for that is what The Garden of Eden was at the time. He also sacrificed his lordship of the earth because he was made by God to subdue it and have dominion over the birds of the air and fish of the sea, contrary to popular opinion he also fatally ruined the image and likeness of God in which he was created. Added to that he forfeited his sinless nature for up until that point in time he was a sinless creation, and fourthly he sacrificed the fellowship that he had enjoyed with God. Why? To be with his beloved bride Eve in her time of need.

Jesus the last Adam our merciful, loving Saviour also willingly sacrificed these same four things in order to be the Saviour of the world and to redeem his bride The Church. He left heaven, a perfect environment, made himself of no reputation by taking on human flesh though he was equal with God, became sin for us though he himself could not sin and gave up fellowship with the Father and the Holy Spirit when he was carrying our sin. “My God, My God, why hath thou forsaken me?” Hallelujah! What a saviour!

When God came into the garden in the cool of the day and call Adam he found him and eve cowering in fear, scantily attired in clothing made from fig leaves and in desperate need of the solution to this grave problem in which they found themselves. God’s Justice demanded death for this man because he had promised him death if he ate of the tree in the midst of the garden but his mercy and love demanded a solution. Our all wise God had the solution before the foundation of the world.

Death did come in the form of the innocent animals whose blood was shed as a substitutionary sacrifice and God took the skin and made clothing for Adam and Eve to hide their nakedness showing them mercy before evicting them from the garden and placing a no entry sign in the form of cherubim with a fiery, flaming sword at the entrance.

Various sacrifices

Early in the history of man we also realised that some sacrifices are acceptable and some are repugnant to God. The two first sons born unto Adam and Eve were not born in the image of God but in the sinful image of their father Adam and were soon aware of their corrupt condition. At a given point in time they were made aware of their need as priests to remedy this situation therefore both decided to go before God presenting sacrifices for sin.

Abel who was a keeper of sheep sacrificed a lamb, probably the best male lamb that he had in the flock and God respected this offering so much that he accepted it and Abel was declared righteous on the basis of this act of faith. So we see this pattern of God borne out in the consistency of the scriptures that continue through the centuries in support of the much railed against bible principal: without the shedding of blood there’s no remission.

Cain who was a tiller of the ground put together the most beautiful array of products from his garden that he could, convinced no doubt that the sheer magnificence of this display supported by the combination of colours and irresistible smells would be so impressive that God would have no choice but to accept it. God, however, rejected it forthwith and boy Cain was mad enough to be tied. He just could not see things God’s way. Well neither does practically all of Adam’s fallen race as we look all around us at the confusion of manmade religious practices or gaze back over the annals of time.

Abraham living sacrifice

We see Abraham called upon to leave Ur of the Chaldees the land of his birth, his home, his family and all that he had known all his life and go to a land that was promised to him by God where he would become the father of many nations. Then after waiting anxiously for many years for Sarah his wife to bear him the promised heir which she finally bore when she was 90 years old he was then told by God to sacrifice this same son the only begotten of Sarah his beloved wife on Mount Moriah.

Because human and other sacrifices was a common practice among the people of the day to the various acknowledged deities such as Moloch, Baal, Remphem, Ashtoreth and many others. This request was therefore nothing unheard of or out of the ordinary. On the way to this most awful assignment this young man would have grown aware from his father’s demeanour that something out of the ordinary was amiss for he said to him “behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” And Abraham, mighty prophet that he was answered and said,” My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering.” That must have given a spark of comfort to Isaac walking up that incline with that load of wood on his back very much like another young man who would make a similar journey in obedience to his father many years later. Thankfully for Isaac although God did not provide the promised lamb immediately he did provide a ram caught in the thicket for the burnt offering which must have been received with great joy and I do believe a considerable degree of relief.

The Blood

Another interesting narrative on the history, relevance, details and personal responsibility of sacrifice is that of mosses in his encounters with the mighty Pharaoh of Egypt. All of the gods of the great empire of the Egyptians had been exposed as incompetent frauds and put in their place by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as he rained plague after plague upon the land and people of Egypt for the sake of his people and yet pharaoh’s heart was so hardened that he would not grant them their freedom as was demanded. The stakes are now about to go up as we observe God’s righteous judgement and gracious deliverance of his people.

(a) On the tenth day of Nissan which is about to become the first month of the year for Israel, every household was to take a male lamb. Here we see God solidifying the significance of the male lamb. (b) Of the first year (c) without spot and blemish taken from among the sheep or the goats (d) he was to be kept up, separated and closely observes until the 14th day to make sure that he fulfilled all of the given requirements. (e) On the 14th day of the month the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel were to kill him in the evening (incidentally that same exact date and time was also when Jesus Christ the perfect spotless lamb of God died on the cross of Calvary many centuries later) and they were to (f) drain the blood in a basin take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in this blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they were to eat it. (g) They were to eat the flesh in that night roasted with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs. (h)They were not to eat of him raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roasted with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. (i) Nothing of him was to remain until the morning; (j) and that which remained of him until the morning was to be burned with fire. (k) He was to be eaten with the loins girded up, shoes on feet, staff in hand; and also with a degree of urgency because this was the sacrifice of the LORD’S Passover. (l) No stranger was to eat of it unless he was first circumcised. (m) In one house he was to be eaten; and the flesh was not to be carried forth out of the house but if the house hold was too little for the lamb he could be shared with the household of the next door neighbour if they were not too large. (n) Not one bone of him was to be broken. (o) No one was to go out at the door of his house until the morning.

All these requirements had to be put in place so that the children of Israel could with confidence wait with bated breath until midnight knowing that the Death Angel when he passed over the land of Egypt would spare their first born when he saw the blood of the lamb applied.

Human sacrifice

Achan the son of Carmi of the tribe of Judah was a soldier under General Joshua in the battle of Jericho and during the plunder of the fallen city he took a number of things which was not lawful for him to possess unknown to anyone and hid them under his tent. In Israel’s next campaign which was against the city of Ai God caused their enemies to prevail and put them to flight because of this. Achan was discovered after a process of elimination to be the cause of Israel’s humiliation at the hands of the enemy and he and his whole family were stoned in order to make things right again.

Paying vows

Judges chapter 11 verses 30 & 31: And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD’S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

Jephthah was a mighty general in the days when the judges ruled Israel and every man did that which was right in his own eyes. The nation of Ammon had invaded the land and so he gathered his army together and went off against them. This vow that he made to God was definitely not a casual statement but one he may have thought was of major significance to the outcome of the battle. Unfortunately for Jephthah, his daughter when she heard of his victory was so overjoyed, that she came out in great celebration to meet him on his return home from the battle oblivious to the terrible vow made by her father. I know not who or what he expected would come forth out of his house but it was with great grief when the person was his daughter. He however, being a man of honor, kept his vow which would have been an extremely heart rending ordeal for all concerned as he went ahead and offered his virgin daughter as a burnt offering unto the Lord.

Obedience better than sacrifice

We have King Saul being rebuke by Samuel for not fully carrying out God’s command to utterly destroy Amalek with these immortal words, ‘to obey is better than sacrifice and to harken than the fat of rams’. In his campaign against this idolatrous nation of Amalek he was commanded by god through his prophet Samuel to utterly destroy everything in the city. Instead he spared Agag their king and the choicest of their livestock. His excuse for sparing the livestock was that they were to be use as sacrifice. God did not want the sacrifice of rams and sheep but obedience and faithfulness and that was made painfully clear to King Saul after that.

Peace Offerings

King David is confronted by the Angel of the Lord with a drawn sword, his sin was he numbered the people of the Lord and causes a plague to fall upon the children of Israel. As the people begin dropping like flies seventy thousand men lay dead. The angel comes to the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite where he and his four sons are there threshing wheat and Ornan sees him and hid himself. The prophet Gad was told by the angel of the Lord to tell David to set up an altar on the threshing floor of Ornan. Then David said to Ornan, Grant me the place of this threshingfloor, that I may build an altar therein unto the LORD: thou shalt grant it me for the full price: that the plague may be stayed from the people.

And Ornan said unto David, Take it to thee, and let my lord the king do that which is good in his eyes: lo, I give thee the oxen also for burnt offerings, and the threshing instruments for wood, and the wheat for the meat offering; I give it all. And King David said to Ornan, Nay; but I will verily buy it for the full price: for I will not take that which is thine for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings without cost.

So David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight. And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; and he answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt offering. And the LORD commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof. At that time when David saw that the LORD had answered him in the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite, then he sacrificed there.

Conclusion

As we look at all these instances of sacrifices made down through the years we see the righteous God presenting sinful man with a vantage point that he may find ways to relate to his justice, holiness, wrath at sin, mercy, power, amazing love and many other attributes through his son our Lord Jesus Christ the lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world, our burnt offering, wave offering, meat offering, drink offerings, in short he is the ultimate sacrifice. Every type of sacrifice that we can find in the word of God was a mere foreshadow of what our lord and Saviour Jesus Christ did for us at Calvary and for those three days and three nights he descended into the heart of the earth and led captivity captive. The gates of hell could not prevail against him because he had and still has the keys of death and hell and have given us his saints the keys to the kingdom. Mathew chapter 16verses 18 & 19: And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (the rock). And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Each saint as a priest is now required to present to God our bodies as a living sacrifice as he has presented himself in the form of his son for us, conscious always of the fact that we have been given the key to the kingdom by the king of the kingdom and what we bind on earth will be bound in heaven and what we loose on earth will be loose in heaven.

the1611 concept

By Alfred D Smith 16/04/2011

From the beginning of time man has been endeavouring to define God and that, in relation to his own statue: vain man has always wanted to explain God in such a way that his carnal, limited, corrupt mind can somehow measure him and therefore fathom God’s immeasurable, incomprehensible personage and characteristics.

In her pivotal encounter with the wily old serpent the devil in the garden of Eden, Eve stated, casually paraphrasing that which God had actually said as so many with a bit of education tend to do today, that were they to eat of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden or so much as touch it that they were promised sure death by God. It all started with the question to the bride, back then Eve: today the church. What was definitely promised and apparently ignored, the eloquence of innocence or ignorance parading in the robe of knowledge, was that death would come to them that same day as a result of eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

If death did not visit them that same day then God, who deals in perfect justice, perfect truth and never mixes words would have been setting a serious legal, moral and credibility precedent that the enemies of truth and righteousness would have pounced upon with the ferocity of a hungry Bajan on a bowl of pudding and souse and a large ice cold glass of mauby.

Never a whisper came from the lurking detractors because they know that God has kept every single promise he made to the letter and within the boundary of the spirit. But some of you are saying they did not die that same said day. As a matter of fact Adam lived to be 930 years and begat sons and daughters according as it is written.

Because man only has the ability to see that which is physical, tangible if I can use that word, much of what is happening around us actually goes unnoticed, we remain unaware of the all the activities of the unseen world going on beyond human view. This however is seen by the principalities and powers that, invisible to Adam’s cursed offspring; do exist in the spirit world, which incidentally is the real world concealed from the natural eyes.

But why is it that man cannot see, is not conscious of this world? If this world is such a positive reality why is it that mankind who will occasionally confess to ‘feeling’ things in his spirit not have the ability to see them?

The reason is that the day that Adam ate of that forbidden fruit his spirit died immediately as God explicitly promised that he would and all his descendants henceforth came into this world spiritually handicapped, deaf, blind, dumb, dead spiritually. So in effect we were born lugging along through time with a dead spirit. Adam lost the ability to see any other world but Satan’s vain, sin cursed, condemned one and we, Adams direct descendants inherited this fallen state by virtue of being his natural offspring. Satan wants this state of affairs to remain a secret, a mystery to as many of us as he can keep blind because it works in his diabolical favour but if we walk by faith in the eternal unchangeable word of God it will work in our favour.

You might of course want to counter my bold unpopular statement by proposing that even if man’s spirit died on that day his soul did not but consider this. Death, in its true form is a separation. Two entities aligned with each other become disconnected. The body, for all intent and purpose, without the spirit, that is the breath of life, is dead even though its existence still continues and by that same principal the soul without Christ and infected by Adam’s inherited sin is also dead. Man’s soul, therefore, also died on the day that Adam ate of the forbidden fruit and the separation from God was so utterly terrifying that he ran and hid himself in the garden, that same place which before had been such a place of peace, instantly becoming conscious of his embarrassing, dreadful nakedness, hitherto unknown.

So now we come around to the body of man because physically man lived on for over 9 centuries. So that then gives council for the accuser an apparently sound case. Sound, that is, until we see the bloody skins of those slain animals in the hands of God being sewed together in order to cover the nakedness and the sin of Adam and eve. So there was also physical death in the garden that day, only it was a legal substitution on the grounds that the lamb of God, God’s only begotten son, slain from the foundation of the world had taken the place of the guilty as long as they agreed to the ‘bloody contract,’ and history shows that they did.

The 1611 concept of God is that he has never broken a promise. I unreservedly promote and adhere to this concept.

When Thomas Nelson, the unseen forces behind the lochman foundation, the International Bible society and the many other shadowy organisations decided that there was need for them to rewrite the bible in order for unspiritual, unregenerate man to understand it they had to negate a number of principals. 1st is Matthew 24 verse 35: Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 2nd is Matthew 5 verse 18: For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 3rd that God has promised explicitly to preserve his word Psalm 12 verse 6 & 7: The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD; thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

They were so conscious and against this powerful promise that in all of their perversions they have changed this important portion of God’s word in their perversions to say that God will protect poor people instead of his word. I am not sure if they are suggesting that God is keeping people poor and protecting them or if he is protecting them from getting out of their poverty but that is what these fools have tampered with. 4th and most frightening thing they ignore is the promise that if any man add to God’s word that plagues in the word of God will be attached to those persons and if anyone is evil enough, for it takes an evil person to do this, to take away from the word of God his part will be taking out of the book of life. The exact words are…

“Revelation 22 verses 18-20 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith, surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”

So God’s promise to protect his word in its entirety, for all eternity, from the tampering of the enemies is the foundational part of the 1611 concept of the bible.

In the 1611 concept there is no ‘twilight zone’ when it comes to salvation. One is either saved and a child of God or lost and a child of the devil, full stop. These filthy dreamers that presented the unsuspecting world with the 1881 revised version have decided that a conversionary period was needful in order to protect God from frauds like themselves and what did they do. They made salvation a drawn out process: 1st Corinthians: 1 verse 18 in the perversions states: for the ‘message’ of the cross is to them that are ‘perishing’ foolishness but to us that are ‘being saved’ it is the power of God. So what happens if you are hit by a bus while you are in this process of being saved? Then you would end up perishing I suppose. This 1811 concept sets salvation up as a reward for faithfulness, allegiance, worship and such like. In effect people are kept so busy ‘being saved’ that they have no time or inclination to carry out the great commission which commands us to go out into all the world and preach the gospel of Christ which is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.

The 1611 concept of salvation is that it is a gift of God wholly dependant on the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ and necessitated by our inability to please God in any way without faith in his every word not even by our most righteous work. Ephesians 2 verses 8, 9 & 10: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

The 1881 concept is that man and the world is the centre of Gods universe with God in heaven craving man’s adoration and worship.

The 1611 concept is that God is the centre, of our universe, pre-eminent the only potentate, and we are humbled and amazed that he would even take a second glance at us far less take an active part in our vain affairs, and because he humbled himself, stooped way down in order to consider us we can say like John in his epistle, we love him because he first loved us. Psalm 8 verses 3 & 4: When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Historically, the most brilliant religious scholars of this world have always without exception been wrong when it came to things spiritual. The reason why these worldly wise scholars have always been so consistently unable to get it right is because the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. 1st Corinthians 1 verse 20: Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

Some might want to put forth the argument that the wise men that came seeking Jesus at his birth, they at least got it right. Howbeit if they had gotten it right thousands of young children that were slaughtered by the soldiers of Herod would have been spared, Matthew 2 verse 18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. These wise men would have gone, like those unlearned shepherds straight to the inn in Bethlehem. Instead rather than follow the star all the way they followed their intellect at a critical part of their expedition and ended up miles off course, same as the scholars have been doing from the beginning of time even to this day. These unimpressive, unassuming shepherds on the other hand just left their sheep to the care of God and followed the heavenly instructions received from the angels and found their way to the son of God without incident or diversion.

Follow the simple instruction given in the solid word of God and one cannot go wrong is another principal of the 1611 concept.

Now just in case some of you are of the opinion that position in life, wealth or pedigree had any impact on this concept in the past take a just below the surface look at this passage in Luke 3 verses1 &2: Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene, Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. What an indictment when we consider that the same situation prevails today.

The word of God has never had regard or respect for earthly rank, class, political, religious, or social standing. God’s man must be called and sent by the Holy Spirit in order for his work to have any impact upon this sin cursed world. The 1611 concept deals in principal not sentiment.

God has been so consistent through time that there definitely is no reason to believe that he will change at any time. He will continue to preserve his word, keep his promises, confound the wise, call the lost to eternal life, resist the proud and surprise us when we think we know all that there is to know.

Hellfire & brimstone preaching was one of the hall marks of the ministry of Christ while he travelled up and down the cities and villages of Palestine during his earthly ministry. The truth, however, has never been popular among Adams race historically and this aspect of the truth especially, has had to endure a great deal of disapproval, ridicule, and even denial within the scholarly community. God’s thoughts on justice are alien to the worlds way of thinking and hell is about justice.

But why would the average scholarly preacher find it so difficult to accept the reality of an eternal hell that will someday be cast with all of its devilish, evil, corrupt, abominable content into the eternal lake of fire where there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth ?

Revelation 20 verse 10-15: And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The reason, my dear friend this eternal concept of hell is not accepted is because the average student preacher, coming out of the average modern bible school, does not have or know anything about the 1611 concept of the word of God. They have it programmed into them that as a matter of course that there is no difference between the two diametrically opposed concepts. They are told over and over again until they accept it that that both came from the same manuscript and very few ever take the time to try to find out that they are being lied to by the subtle one. John 8 verse 43-45: Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

The first thing that happens to these young unsuspecting, enthusiastic boys and girls is that they are taken through a process of disarmament where they have the sword of the Lord, which is the Holy Spirit Inspired WORD OF GOD, exchange for one of the numerous copyrighted counterfeits coming off of the 1881Westcot and Hort Vatican funded perversions. Yes sirs they are systematically disarmed, neutered, castrated, begging your pardon for using these obscene terminologies.

I once had one of these preachers suggest to me that it is these highly educated scholars who are the most qualified to make judgements, decisions as regards to what is reliable and truthful in our book, not the author of the book the Holy Spirit or us ignorant uneducated men of God. Nevertheless, I beg to differ because I said it before and I will say it again and again till I am heard; historically those religious scholars have never been right. Jesus had no uses for them, neither did John the Baptist and neither do I.

Introduction

From 1611 to 2011 many of us have had the priceless privilege of reading from the greatest ever book. First written in Hebrew and finally written in the English language the seventh purification (psalms 12 verses 6 & 7); we are speaking about The Authorised King James Version of the bible. This book effectively broke the strangle hold of the Vatican, releasing their octopus like grip over the English speaking world and brought the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ unto ordinary people that had come through some 1000 years of spiritual darkness and religious suppression otherwise known as the dark ages, presided over by Satan and His anti-Christian institution, The Roman catholic church and her allies. The protestant Reformation was built on the light they received at the arrival of this mighty book, commissioned by King James, into the English speaking world. Psalm 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. This book has a solid, unquestionable pedigree, reinforced soundly upon 400 years of withstanding attack after vicious attack from every quarter that the enemies of truth and righteousness have thrown our way. Starting mighty revivals in remote places that spread the wonderful gospel of Christ to other remote places worldwide where millions, including myself believed and saw the greatest miracle ever, the salvation of a lost sinner’s soul from an eternal hell.

Of course we should be aware that millions of saints have been slaughtered down through the ages, because they had placed their faith in the wonderful words of life contained within these pages and have miraculously been saved from the wrath to come by believing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Many of their stories can be found documented in “Fox book Of Martyrs”. I expect many more of us will be killed for the word of God sake as the heathen continue to rage, and the people imagine a vain thing. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

There is no doubt what so ever that the evil one will continue in his tireless endeavour to replace this treasured book, God’s eternal word, within your hearts and your churches with one of his numerous copyrighted, subsidized perversions. Among the Sheep, for God does refers to us as sheep he being our shepherd, in Psalm 23, there are scattered many Goats, persons who would rather stand on their own individual pebble or favourite stone in the midst of the storm rather than the solid unmovable rock of the proven, preserved word of God and the enemy has been very happy to provide these little stones for them. Every new per-version, that is presented to us is accompanied by the outrageous claim that it is Just as good as or better than the storm tried, time tested, Holy Spirit powered Authorised version and many of you are so gullible like Mother Eve, you swallow his old lie; hook, line and sinker; yet we see the fruit of these perversions that are based on the carnal wisdom of corrupt man and the text of the revised version of 1881 that, incidentally, Thomas Nelson owns the copyright to. Churches worldwide are becoming increasingly tolerant of even the most outlandish sin while demonstrating increasing intolerance and disdain for the word and saints of God.

Matthew 6 verse 24 makes it clear that No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 400 years ago when the authorized version of the bible broke through the darkness and set freedom before us, we learned that Salvation was a gift of God to rotten helpless sinners like myself that was received by grace through faith. 270 years later the bride of Christ has been informed by the writers of the revised version that it is now and drawn out process dependent upon ones efforts and morality.

Our only offensive weapon

Armour

We are told in the book of Ephesians chapter 6 verses 11 to 18 to put on the whole armour of God, which by the way, is not a suggestion but an order, a command if you please, from our commander in chief the Lord Jesus Christ. Every piece of the armoury, as outlined by the writer of this epistle, is defensive except the sword, which is the eternal word of God. Let me show you why this sword is so frightening to Satan and why he has put out billions of dollars to have it counterfeited. It is frightening because it is Quick, which means it is alive and powerful and packs an almighty punch and it is sharper than any two edged sword. The Holy Spirit gives it an ultra sharp laser edge that Satan cannot withstand nor imitate in any of his well put together perversions. Not even his best imitation can compare. It pierces even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Satan has been seriously stabbed in his evil head by this ultra sharp two edged sword and he knows what critical damage it can do to him and his kingdom of darkness. Do you remember when Jesus, after forty days and forty nights of fasting and communion with God was tempted by Satan in the wilderness and Jesus used the sword of the word like the skilled warrior that he is when he simply said, ‘It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.’, piercing Satan to the core of his evil spirit. Shaken by this effective counter he shifted his attack and again got pierced by this Sword of the Lord in the hand of the master when Jesus again stabbed him with the Holy Spirit inspired, eternally preserved word of God: ‘It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord THY GOD.’ boy that must have been embarrassing; the execution was surgical and that strike was definitely precise and painful. In spite of the wounds that Satan was by this time carrying witnessed by the host of heaven, he attempted one final, desperate attack, hoping somehow for a better result this time and got slashed again right across his rotten head with the dismissive and belittling words ‘Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.’

Satan has never recovered from these fierce wounds and that is why he has expended so much effort through the ages in keeping this lethal weapon out of your hands and replacing it with one of his tame, useless imitations. It is so sad to see our young bright enthusiastic bible students returning from these bible colleges disarmed, doubt riddle and defiled by these ungodly so called bible teachers planted in religious institution all over the place which promotes the revised version over the authorised version. Proverbs 24 verse 21: My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change.

If you are perhaps thinking that only Jesus possess the skill and the power to use God’s word in such an effective way consider Deacon Stephen in the book of acts as he was confronted by that blood thirsty mob of adversaries lead by the clergy from the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia and Stephen took the scriptures and beginning from Geneses right through to Malachi he let them have it. He was not afraid to use the word nor was he apologetic for these men though occupying high religious positions were the enemies of truth as so many are today. It is written in the account that they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. Wouldn’t you like to speak that way? You can, all you need to do is put away the counterfeits and get into the real Word of God and you can. Glory be to God.

Of course there is a price to pay as Stephen quickly found out because these people will not endure sound doctrine but will heap to themselves teachers having itching ears and they will turn on anyone that will dare make a stand for the truth. Stephen was accused of speaking blasphemous words against Moses, and against God: A crime punishable by death.

At his trial he used the word of God in such a mighty and irresistible way that it is written that when they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But Steven, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, and he said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. This is something that they did not want to hear and so they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, (it is amazing how Satan’s crowd will unite under his banner against God’s people) and dragged him out of the city and they stoned Stephen, as he called upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

At present, as you can see, Satan is going about this process of the replacement of the Authorized Version within the church, in the guise of an angel of light but the time will come when as a roaring Lion he will not only attempt remove any remaining fragments of this book that he despise and fear so much but with it, any saint that continue to cling to its irrefutable truths.

Amos 8:11 & 12 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: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

But how is this process of replacing the word of God within the churches accomplished so successfully and so quickly? Through the subtle, systematic disarming of unsuspecting bible students that pass through bible colleges and subsequent rearming of them with one of the Devil’s new counterfeits and later infiltrating them back into defenseless churches like wolves among sheep or perhaps goats. While men slept, the parable states in Mathew chapter 13: 25 to 30, the enemy came and planted the tares among the wheat. Men of God have been sleeping just like Jonah did even in spite of the raging storm. Oh yes Jesus did sleep in a storm too didn’t he but when he awoke and spoke the word, that word had power over the raging storm. Does your word have power?

When we awake we could find that our sword, the eternal word of God, has been taken away from us and now, all that we have are useless counterfeit words of men, garden tools with which to fight the enemy. Many are now fighting a losing battle with the corrupt and impotent New King James Garden tool from Thomas ‘the enemy’ Nelson or the, just as powerless, New International per-version by the International Bible society of Satan.

Zechariah 13:7 to 9 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

False Accusations

The 1611 authorized version of the bible is often maligned and accused of having glaring errors by some of its detractors; however when cornered and put on the spot, we challenge them to point out these imaginary contradictions, they are unable to expose one of these so called errors. Most of them are just echoing statements heard from those in opposition to God’s word and thus are proven liars and false witnesses.

This faithful book is accused of being old fashioned, out-dated and irrelevant to life and the challenges that confronts the world in these modern days yet the only persons that are found to be equipped to handle the complexities of life effectively today, are those saints that have put their trust in the mighty God of this book.

Those Christian psychologists that have infiltrated the modern church quoting and teaching from the modern per-versions have found themselves presiding over a significant increase in family problems and marriage failure. Issues of immorality among their growing numbers are glaring and growing, accompanied by a rapid escalation of decay and uncertainty within church families that they are incompetent to stem with these powerless, corrupt copyrighted bibles which are based on the wisdom of corrupt man, the 1881 revised text; powered by the hiss of the serpent and the love of money.

Pedigree

Yes this mighty old book was first printed in 1611 and has gone through four major editions to correct spelling and printing errors but it has never been revised because the 1611 original text has been so, sound and trustworthy. In 1629 a careful correction of earlier printing errors was made and this was the first edition. The 1638 edition reinstated words and clauses overlooked by the 1611 printers and amended manifest errors. The Final two editions were only seven years apart (1762 and 1769) with the second one completing what the first had started: the standardization of the spelling.

Motive of the translators

The Authorised 1611 was published in order that the ordinary man, the butcher the baker the candle stick maker, would be able to have the scriptures at his disposal and thus no longer have to rely on the ungodly rulers of the Roman Catholic Church to tell him what sayeth their Lord. This effectively exposed the farce of the mass and the practise of confession to a priest, un-biblical practices that had been used for many centuries by the Vatican to enrich their organisation and enslave through ignorance, superstition and religion the masses of every nation through the mass, thereby keeping them under the control of the pontiff, their representative of the prince of darkness.

It was not motivated, as is the case of the modern per-versions, by the desire of the copyright owners to make money, but instead to make disciples of all nations.

The Greek text, Textus Receptus is based on the vast majority (90%) of the 5000+ Greek manuscripts still in existence. That is why it is also called the Majority Text.

Textus Receptus agrees with the earliest versions of the Bible: Peshitta (AD150) Old Latin Vulgate (AD157), the Italic Bible (AD157) etc. These Bibles were produced some 200 years before the minority Egyptian codices favoured by the Roman Church.

Textus Receptus agrees with the vast majority of the 86,000+ citations from scripture by the early church fathers.

Textus Receptus is untainted with Egyptian philosophy and unbelief.

Textus Receptus is not mutilated with deletions, additions and amendments, as is the Minority Text.

Textus Receptus strongly upholds the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith: the creation account in Genesis, the divinity of Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, the Saviour’s miracles, his bodily resurrection, his literal return, the cleansing power of his blood, the inspiration and the preservation of the scripture etc.!

Textus Receptus was – and still is – the enemy of the Roman Church. This is an important fact to bear in mind.

The Majority Text has been known throughout history by several names. It has been known as the Byzantine text, the Imperial Text, the Traditional Text and the Reformation Text as well as the Majority Text. This text culminates in the TEXTUS RECEPTUS or Received Text which is the basis for the King James authorized Bible, which we know also as the Authorized Version. We describe this text with the term "Universal," because it represents the majority of extant manuscripts which represent the original autographs.

the tree

The ability to differentiate between wheat and tares while they are in the process of growth by just observation must have been a virtually impossible task to the ordinary man according to the parable in Matthews 13 verses 24 to 30 however at harvest time the differences become very evident. Of course in order not to destroy the valuable wheat, the worthless tares were allowed to continue to grow as well. The new perversions of the scripture that have been planted among us by organisations like the Lochman foundation, Thomas Nelson, the International Bible Society and others are all the product of the same spirit of deceit and has flourish in this world because the enemy has planted them to conceal themselves alongside the proven word of God to delude those that know not and love not the truth. We saints however should not be so naive as to believe that everything that is accepted by the worldly within the church is acceptable.

Christianity, which is firmly founded on the undisputable bible teaching that Jesus Christ, the lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world was crucified on the Cross at Calvary at the insistence of some very influential Jewish Religious leaders, the Sanhedrin, by the hands of the Roman Government; died around 3 pm in the afternoon of the 14th day of Nisan (Hebrew)or Abib(Aramaic) the first month of the Jewish year on the preparation day( John 19:14 Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and not as is assumed by most bible teachers as the preparation day for the weekly Sabbath); Christ’s body was then taken down from the cross and buried in the new tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea on Wednesday evening before sunset, at the dawning of the day of the Jewish Passover which began at sunset, spent three full days and three full nights in the heart of the earth and arose from the dead triumphantly at the end of the third day as was prophesied in the scriptures and as he was continually telling those with whom he spoke though they understood him not, even to this day. Remember the sign of Jonah, three days and three nights in the belly of the whale. The foundation and the resulting edifice of our faith is established firmly in opposition to every extant religion including that of Roman Catholism that has enjoyed far reaching influence on many aspects of what Christians have and do practice down through the years. Christian reality has nothing what so ever to do with the pagan observance of Easter, Good Friday or the ridiculous teaching of Christ rising after one night and two days as is popularly thought and believed today.

For the first three centuries of its existence, the roman rulers did everything imaginable to rid the world of this dynamic life changing faith by both persecuting and destroying all those saints that held to it and also by the systematic and ruthless eradication of all their holy writings.

Instead of hindering the growth of this faith all that their efforts did was fan the fire of resolve of the saints and encourage them to go out into all the world and spread this wonderful gospel of Christ where ever they were scattered.

Even within the very heart of the Roman nation the Christian faith was making a significant impact on social life; not only among the poor but also among those in high positions, exposing and displacing many of their heathen religious beliefs by displaying the life changing power of God that accompanies faith in our risen Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Due to the powerful testimony of these saints about Gods miraculous power of salvation many new saints were born into the Kingdom of God at Rome.

Christianity in Rome, however, encountered an old challenge which came in the form of the attempt by the leaders to accommodate some very ancient religious practices which were practiced by the Romans and had their appeal with many of those that came out of the Jewish culture for the adoption of heathen religions had been a thorn in the side of the Jewish nation for many Centuries. One of these was the worship of Ishtar the Queen of heaven. She was according to mythology the virgin mother/ lover/ temple prostitute of Tammuz the sun god who died and came back to life.

Jeremiah 7:18

The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

Jeremiah 44: 18 to 25

But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?
Then Jeremiah said unto all the people, to the men, and to the women, and to all the people which had given him that answer, saying, The incense that ye burned in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, ye, and your fathers, your kings, and your princes, and the people of the land, did not the LORD remember them, and came it not into his mind? So that the LORD could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation, and an astonishment, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day. Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day. Moreover Jeremiah said unto all the people, and to all the women, Hear the word of the LORD, all Judah that are in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

Revelation 2:13 – 15 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

The Romans rulers and religious leaders, realizing that their best efforts to wipe out the Christian faith had proven futile and that under persecution, this faith carried an appeal to the ordinary man that they could not contend with, made a strategic change. The decision was made to make Christianity the religion of the state. In their acceptance of Christianity and in making it the religion of the Roman Empire they were then faced with another delicate problem. What will they do with the many other religious practices vying for a share in the market? The book on which the Christians based their faith was the ancient Hebrew scriptures, painstakingly hand copied letter for letter by the Aaronic priests for many centuries from other manuscripts and the Gospels and the epistles which were also carefully hand copied by Messirite scribes. Textus Vaticanus was the book that was used to seduce the Christians, fifty bibles hand written in Alexandria Egypt on calf and antelope skins replete with numerous minor changes, deletions and additions. This text was never accepted by the Greek Christians because of the number of errors, omissions, deletions, contradictions and additions plus it included a number of spurious books. What they did with Christianity was what Balaam did to cause the wrath of God to fall on Israel. They established teachings that polluted the Christian faith by infusing various aspects of the diverse religious practices across their Empire while maintaining Christianity as the central theme. They quietly introduced the worship of The Queen of Heaven subtly changing her name from ‘Ishtar’ to ‘the virgin Mary’ whom they made a perpetual virgin thereby pulling the wool over the eyes of large numbers of the religious but unlearned. They also systematically adapted bits of Judaism, Egyptian and eastern philosophy, pagan rituals and idol worship into the church thereby deceiving the unsuspecting world that this was Christianity.

In Christianity all saints are a royal priesthood having the Blood bought authority to go before the throne of grace with boldness and confidence in the name of Christ at all times, making their request known. The Roman Catholic Church countered this by introducing and enforcing the doctrine of the Nicolaitans: the separation and exaltation of the priesthood over the laity. The laity being dependent on the priesthood continuously for a various so called sacraments in order to be in good standing with the church and to escape out of a place they invented called purgatory. They thus wrested the blood bought power of the saints away from them by making them subject to the whims and fancies of the church leaders. A Roman Catholic Church made its members outcasts in the world in continuous need of and dependence on their priest to confess to; rather than as God has made us through his Son the Lord Jesus Christ, priest in search of the outcast of this world until he returns.

Men Love darkness rather than light

Rejecting the word of the Lord, weather due to pride, arrogance or fear of what the people will say or do is the worse sin that a leader, weather he be king or pastor, can be guilty of because the Lord will not tolerate any one that places, pride, popularity and pleasing the people above obeying his word. 1Samuel 15 verse 26: And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.

How did it happen that the Minority Text supplanted the trustworthy and respected Textus Receptus which triggered the great Protestant Reformation during which tens of thousands of true believers perished by flame, famine and torture? Who is behind this dangerous deception that has engulfed the Christian Church? Do you know? Do you care? Is it important? Does it really matter?

The ‘Minority Texts’ are also known as the Alexandrian Texts because they were produced in Alexandria in Egypt. The Minority Texts were rejected by the early Christians and also by all the Protestant Reformers of the 16th and 17th centuries. The Reformers, who were well aware of the existence of the Minority Texts, considered them unfit for translation purposes. These are very important points to bear in mind. Why did the early Christians and the Protestant Reformers reject the Minority Texts?

The answer is:

The Minority Texts were the work of unbelieving Egyptian scribes who did not accept the Bible as the Word of God or Jesus Christ as the only begotten SON of GOD!

The Minority Texts abound with alterations, often a single manuscript being amended by several different scribes over a period of many years; something the Aaronic priests and Masorites Scribes would never have tolerated when making copies of the Scriptures.

The Minority Texts omit approximately 200 verses from the Scriptures. This is equivalent to 1st and 2nd Peter. Pause and consider that stunning fact!

The Minority Texts contradict themselves in hundreds of places.

The Minority Texts are doctrinally weak and often dangerously incorrect.

Yet virtually every modern English Bible relies on the Minority Text as its underlying New Testament text in preference to Textus Receptus!

Modern translations abound with misleading footnotes, which do little else but cast doubt on the King James Version. Examples are:

The Hebrew of this line is obscure.

The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain – or unknown.

Other ancient manuscripts add

Other ancient manuscripts omit

The most ancient authorities omit John 7:53 – 8:11

The best manuscripts omit this verse. (e.g. Matt.17:21, 18:11, 23:14, Mark 7:16, John 5:4)

Some of the most ancient authorities bring the book (Mark) to a close at the end of Mark 16:8

Many manuscripts do not contain the remainder of this verse; example Acts 8:37

Many ancient authorities read…

Not found in most of the old manuscripts example John 7:53-8:11

Seems to me that this group of Scholars who did the revised version of 1881were a bunch of incompetent Quacks compared to the 1611 translators who never encountered any of these problems when they were translating from the received text.

Yet The King James Version of the bible is infinitely more accurate and reliable than ANY modern English translation on the market today. And that is why for 400 years it has had, and continues to have – the blessing of the Almighty God upon it and the ire of the enemies of truth: something no modern version or translation can come anywhere near. Most, after a decade or two, disappear from the book shops, only to re-appear some years later with a few alterations under a new name.

Market share

blac-money-scam

Success in today’s commercial, money centred world is measured, as the natural man is programmed in the modern learning institutions to do, in market share and financial returns. With the significant sums of money that is expended by those dark forces in high places to push the new international and the new King James versions of the bible, which by the way is translated from the 1881 revised text of Thomas Nelson, in their advertising campaigns the owners of the new International version of the bible have been able of late to boast of having a larger percentage of the market than any other version of the bible. However With the power of the Holy Spirit behind the 400 year old 1611 Authorized Version, despite its rejection by almost all the major bible colleges, leading church groups, modern media preachers and Christian psychologists etc.; and no advertising dollars to prop it up, is still the only potent, best loved, most trusted and most raged against book in the world today; Proof again of its unmatchable pedigree. One must either love it or hate it but it cannot be ignored. What a book!
