The War on the KJV, Part 3

To read Part 1, click here… August 1st (The War Against The KJV) .

.

.

.

.

.

In Part 1, it was discussed that the greatest reason for the inability of Bible students to understand the King James Version, is the lack of God’s Holy Spirit to interpret to the student’s mind.

.

And then, as a desperate attempt to gain an understanding of the Bible, the student buys another, more modern version.

In Part 2, it was determined that the King James Version has stood the test of time for 400 years. But Satan understands that the KJV is the standard by which all other versions are measured by. And so, it has been his mission to make the King James Version as obsolete as possible, if by any means Satan can render the King James Version irrelevant. Thus Satan would destroy the foundational role which the KJV has served, leaving us with a lot of poor-to-mediocre versions which say a lot of different things!

.

But this Part 3 will deal with a further solution to this great Satan-inspired dilemma: namely that Satan has kept the Church so busy with the cares and pleasures of the world, that we have greatly failed to use our time to good account! We have been pursuing the earthly Mammon, instead of pursuing heavenly riches!

WE SHOULD BE TEACHERS BY NOW!

.

It’s like Paul complains… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpg“…we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” Hebrews 5:11, 12

.

Paul here, is gently scolding us because by now, many of us should have already reached teacher status. But Satan has diverted us into the vain pursuit of worldly riches and pleasures!

.

The point is, if we who profess to love God supremely had been spending the proper amount of time each day studying our Bibles, then the King James Version would not be any more difficult than any other version! But instead of spending an hour or two in serious study each day, many of us have spent our evenings in front of the TV, or pursuing various hobbies, careers, sports or whatever other pleasures or cares which have greatly eclipsed our pursuit of the knowledge which would have saved our souls!

MANY THINGS HARD TO BE UNDERSTOOD!

.

The fact is, God did not write the Bible, so that it is easy to understand. No, mahttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_040327-N-1261P-058_Navy_Chaplain,_Lt._Marc_Massie_assigned_to_Naval_Mobile_Construction_Battalion_Seventy_Four_(NMCB-74)_studies_his_Bible_for_an_upcoming_service.jpgny things in Scripture are hard to be understood, as 2nd Peter 3:16 reveals. And only the Elect will persevere in the pursuit of truth, so as to find the true meaning of those more difficult passages.

.

Listen… “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by Thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16.

.

Yes, Jeremiah loved God’s Word, and separated himself from the apostate church-goers of his day, so that he might fill his hungry soul with God’s life-giving Word!

THE BIBLE IS OUR ARMOR!

.

A great part of the armor of God, is be clothed with God’s Word. Thus would we be strong against the Enemy of Souls. Our “Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God” would be long and sharp, and ready for battle!

.

And those “Thee’s” and “Thou’s” and “th’s” would have given us little trouble, because we spent the necessary hours each day, in prayer, in Bible study, and in contemplation of God’s Word.

HISTORY BOOKS, NEWSPAPERS NOT NEEDED!

.

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Old_book_-_Basking_Ridge_Historical_Society_(1).jpg

.

Now let the Reader be warned that Satan will come to any serious-minded Bible student and try to divert him or her into alternative Bible study, such as endless Bible prophecy, with prophecy time charts, which depend on history books or newspapers, having little to do with the character of Jesus. Most of these try to interpret Bible prophecy by looking into history books or newspapers to find the answer. No, the only Bible prophecy interpretation that is worth anything is to merely compare Scripture with Scripture, having the motto… “Sola Scriptura”, that is… “The Bible only”!

.

The only other book that we may need, is a good concordance, such as a Strong’s Concordance and the center-references in our study Bible.

.

And thus armed with a good King James study Bible and a Strong’s Concordance, one will begin to plow right through the King James Version, as if it is speaking in today’s very current English!

GOOD NEWS! TIME TO REPENT!

.

Well of course, there is very Good News! Because, we can begin today, to ask God to chttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpglear away all the meaningless rubbish out of our lives, so that we can devote ourselves to the getting of wisdom and knowledge of Jesus Christ, and begin to hide those precious promises in our hearts, so that we can begin to walk by faith and not by sight!

.

Listen… “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee…O how love I Thy law! it is my meditation all the day…Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:11, 97, 105. 

.

Psalm 119 is teeming with such verses as these, which proclaim the Believer’s love for God’s Word!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

“SUN SHALL BE DARKENED”

.

 The Bible speaks of the Sun being darkened in various passages, such as this… Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall THE SUN BE DARKENED, and the Moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:  Matt. 24:29-30. Here is seen a prophetic scenario to be fulfilled in these times: “the Sun shall be darkened, and the Moon shall not give her light.”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Solar_eclipse_1999_4_NR.jpg

.

And there are other similar passages, such as this… “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, and the Moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: FOR IN MOUNT ZION and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.”  Joel 2:30-32. But how are we to understand this? Will the Moon be turned to literal blood? Or are these things to be understood figuratively? And why is the Moon spoken of as “her”?

BIBLE SPEAKS REPEATEDLY OF THE SUN

.

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield:” Psalm 84:11 

.

The Bible repeats this concept from start to finish. Such passages as this one, speak of spiritual light and darkness… We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” 2 Peter 1:19

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sunrise_from_Burrow_Mump,_Burrowbridge,_Somerset_(2931443808).jpg

Christ here compares Himself to the “day star” (the Sun). Here is a remarkable revelation concerning the last days. That Christ will be the day-star that arises in our hearts at the great “Dawning of the Day”. And this concept should be researched and understood, in order to gain a greater understanding of just how shall the Sun be darkened.

.
