media_propagandaFrom way back since the beginning of time the world, and that includes the people of God, have been the target of that old serpent the devil’s programing. When he confronted eve, early in man’s history, with the leading question hath God said that if you eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shall surely die. He then convincingly countered her affirmative reply with the ‘thou shalt not surely die’ alternative but actually become like gods knowing both sides of the vast spectrum of good and evil which appealed to her pride and she was cooked. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life took control of the human race from that day forward.

Today we turn on our television set to watch our favorite program and we are being programed to accept show business vices as the norm, homosexuality, greed,etc.. Turn on internet explorer and we are confronted with murderers, prostitute, thieves and liars all exalted by the old serpent as celebrities, movie stars, those that love and make a lie, the rich and famous are are all being exalted by the media and told this is the civilized world’s standard of success and acceptable aims.

Then on Sunday we run and come to church and breath a sigh of relief for alas we are in a sanctuary of morality. Wait! there’s a woman dressed in the attire of a harlot  sitting off to my right with 60% of her breast exposed. Can’t look or I will surely die. well it does not bother any one else so maybe something is wrong with me.

The pastor gets up to read from the bible except what he is reading is not quite what my bible is saying, well they tell me mine is old and out-dated and the Holy spirit, who wrote mine, was not a scholar like those folks that did the new versions. I am finding it hard to get with the program. For now I will avoid looking to my left and keep clinging to my old bible.

According to the scriptures, Jesus is man ‘the son of man’ and he is Almighty God ‘the son of God ‘but he never was and never will be an angel, not even Michael the archangel who according to the book of Daniel is one of the chief princes of the people of Israel.

flaming-swordJoshua chapter 5 verse13: And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, what saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the LORD’S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

Hebrews chapter 2 verse 10: For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Revelation chapter 19 verse 1: And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God…

Some have stated that the voice of the people is the voice of God. I join with these verse and chose to differ. Jesus is the word, not the great voice of the people because the people are usually wrong.

Revelation chapter 19 verse 5: And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great…

Revelation chapter 19 verse 9: And he [this voice or spokesman for the people] saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Revelation chapter 19 10 – 13: And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, {now you ‘re talking} and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Jude chapter 1verses 8- 10: Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

Second Peter 2 verses 10 – 12: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

First Corinthians chapter 6 verses 1- 3: Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? How much more things that pertain to this life?

If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

Mathew chapter 4verses 1- 11: Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

Daniel 10 verses 13 & 14: But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.

Daniel chapter 10 verse 21: But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

Daniel chapter 12 verse1- 4: And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Daniel chapter 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Use of voice

1Thessilonians chapter 4 verses13- 18: But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Second Peter chapter 2 verses14- 16: Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

Revelation chapter 12 verses 7- 12: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Not an Angel

Hebrews chapter1: God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

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.

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!

perfection

Hebrew 6 verse 1: Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Christianity, true Christianity is about perfection; our perfect God will stand for nothing else. You see Christ our saviour is perfect in every imaginable way; there is therefore no place in our faith for anything less than perfection.

All of the religions that I know of are dominated by person presenting the illusion of being superior to the ordinary person doing the best they can to achieve and maintain some elusive standard which, if their conscience is not seared is usually less than perfect, to please their god who is usually less than perfect also.

We, saints of God,  have a perfect saviour who has paid in full the penalty for our sin, our imperfection providing for us a perfect salvation, which we learn about in God’s  perfect book called the bible, which tells us about a perfect life which is eternal, a perfect promise because he that promised is incapable of failing, a perfect future and much more.

God’s plan of salvation is also perfect because all that we have to do is rely totally on him and he will handle it from the beginning to the end.

Who can ask for anything more? There is nothing more but most men has chosen to settle for less.

in his image

Did God have an image and likeness? The bible claims he does in genesis chapter 1 verse 26. Some theologians claim that he did not. If the Bible says he did I believe the bible above a million theologians just to set the record straight.

Some would suggest that Christ does have an image but he only acquired this image some 2000 years ago disqualifying him from being the image and likeness of God in genesis chapter 1. We are however told in the unchangeable word of God in Colossians 1 verse 16: For by him (this is in reference to Christ) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.

Knowing that in order for one to make someone in our image and likeness one must have an image and likeness we must take the facts as they are placed before us.

· The person that made Adam was obviously the possessor of a physical image because he made him in his physical image. John 1 verse 14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

· The person that made Adam must have been a spirit for he made him with a Spirit. We learn from the scripture that Christ was a life giving Spirit. 1Corinthians 15 verse 45: And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

· The person that made Adam was a soul and we know that Christ was a soul. Matthew 26 verse 38: Then saith he unto them, my soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

· Adam was not made by the spoken word like the rest of the creatures that were made on the earth in the preceding days of creation but by the physical word who with his own two hands sculptured him from the dust of the ground into his own physical image and man was a living body, then he breathed breath into this living body;( just like he did to his disciples in John 20 verse 22: And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:) and man became a living soul.

· What really was created therefore? It was not man’s body for that was made from the dust of the ground, neither was the spirit of man created for the breath that was breathed into his body was the spirit of man but what effectively was created when this breath of life came in contact with this body filled with life was the soul of man and man’s soul was created self existent, eternally conscious, a living soul as it is written.

· Technically God created every man on the sixth day of creation because he created them in the loins of Adam. Adam effectively corrupted and cursed all his offspring when he willfully disobeyed God and ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (1st Corinthians 15 verse 22a: For as in Adam all die), the curse therefore of eating the fruit of this tree was threefold death. Man’s spirit died immediately, man’s body died eventually, and Man the living soul died eternally in the lake of fire which was created for Satan and his angels. Revelation 20 verse 14 & 15: 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.

· Effectively all men at the fall of Adam became the children, the property of Satan who is the eternal adversary of everything righteous. Jesus was therefore able to state to some of the most moral, pious and upright persons that he came in contact with in the gospel of John chapter 8 verse 44: 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.

So the image with which Adam was created was that of God but when he sinned and fell from innocence this image was effectively and totally effaced, destroyed and replace with the corrupt ungodly image of Satan, the god of this world. All Adam’s offspring therefore, having inherited his sinful nature, dead spirit, dying body and corrupt soul are born into this world under the curse that was placed upon all the creation at the judgment in the garden. Genesis chapter 3 verses 14 – 19: And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Contrary to popular opinion this curse has not been lifted according to Romans chapter 8 verse 19 – 22: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And this curse will not be lifted from the creation until the millennium reign of Christ and will not be lifted from the individual even though he becomes a son of God we all still have to live here on earth under sin cursed conditions; Romans 8 verse 23: And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Forgiveness is a subject that we encounter from time to time and quite often can only see the surface because of its depth.

Power

Many would propose that there is great power to be had from the act of forgiving however for most persons this is actually just an academic perhaps even abstract topic that first hand experience is often lacking

Price

The reason that forgiveness is so foreign to many is because it has a cost that the forgiver must be able and willing to pay and the ability to shoulder this cost can be lacking in him that have not experienced the power of God’s forgiveness and realised the utter depravity of the best of us.

Case in point

God’s example of forgiveness is unique and frightening because he spent an eternity in a burning hell in our place which in his case only lasted 72 hours but eternity will not end for us if we reject his High Priestly Substitutionary  sacrifice.

So accept his forgiveness and avoid the unimaginable horrors of burning in hell for all eternity.

A poem by Alfred D Smith

 

Some four hundred years, still this book stands supreme;

‘gainst countless assaults and every devilish scheme.

Surrounded by treachery, from without and within:

it stands between freedom and bondage to sin

Since out of the dark ages came King James great decree

which angered the pontiff and set England free;

The truth was let loose to the man in the street;

through this great book of life the chains fell from our feet

 

Now the serpent’s more subtle than any beast ever known.

He’s the god of deception and this earth is his throne.

His head may be wounded but his tail packs a sting.

To discredit God’s words in our minds, is his thing.

one hundred perversions and each year he brings more;

To poison the water, mislead and obscure.

using man’s love of money, to put darkness for light.

Take notice, his perversions are all copyright.

 

From in the Garden of Eden he has fine-tuned his lie,

which tricked eve and broke man and left us to die.

his deception, still deadly, at Christ’s bride now aimed,

that old mother of harlots’ the trump card in his game.

With her wealth and vast power she traverses sea and land,

to get her distortion of ‘truth’ in your hand.

A few subtle changes a little leaven will do.

A little poison in the water and these fools have no clue.

 

In institution of learning her great wealth she has used,

to plant her disciples with their devilish views.

They challenge sound doctrine, sounding eloquent and clever.

‘Have God said this old book we must accept it forever?’

If it offends we must change it, scholarship gives us that power.

So like brute beast they rage against God to their sorrow.

He that sitteth in heaven shall send them delusion;

and this same word they oppose shall have them in confusion.

 

Some four hundred years still this book stands supreme;

for it is God’s mighty word, not some mortal men’s dream.

All hell let loose in desperate opposition;

Egyptian manuscripts showed up, loaded with venom.

Yet the opponents despite all their schemes and their tales;

can’t show us, one prophesy of this book that has failed.

Heaven and earth, they must all pass away;

but this book, God’s preserved word; will forever be there.
