The War Against The KJV

“I just can’t understand all the KJV’s archaic language!”

Isn’t this the mantra which commonly echoes throughout the hallowed halls of today’s Christianity?

.

Yes, for the vast majority of churchgoers, the King James Version of the Bible is a bar-set-too-high! The “Thee’s” and Thou’s” and words that end with “th”, instead of “s” are just a bridge-too-far!

NEW TRANSLATIONS = MORE PROFITS!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FamilyChristianStoresAppletonWisconsin.jpg

And of course, this is good news for Bible publishers! Because it means more profits from the publishing of many new translations. And so, every year it seems, some new translation which promises to be easier to read is churned out, and frustrated Bible readers scramble to lay hold on that new version, in hopes that it will clear up the confusion.

.

This dilemma reminds us of that verse from Isaiah… “…the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.” Isaiah 29:12

CONFUSION IS IN THE MIND!

.

But the fact is, a good part of the confusion is in our minds! Not in the version!

.

That’s right, there are far too many church-goers who have not yet become true disciples of Jesus, because we are trying to serve http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgGod one day per week, while attempting to hold on to our weekday gods, too! And such a divided heart will not enjoy the fellowship of the Spirit. 

.

Listen… “For let not that (double-minded) man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:7, 8

.

No, the double-minded man cannot expect to understand God’s Word. And so, very many such, try to skirt around this problem by getting some new version of the Bible, or buying some new book about the Bible, in hopes of finally clearing away the fog of confusion which hangs over us.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But the very Good News is, that God is a merciful God! And those of us who are still behttp://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-Daviding assaulted by Satan’s attacks can fall to the ground and plead for God to give us an undivided heart! Yes, the life of a true-worshipper of God is a life of repentance and the humbling of the heart! And none of us can hold our head up high!

.

Especially in this day of great apostasy, there is none who can ignore such passages as this… “Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:8-10

.

And then, with hearts aglow by God’s indwelling Spirit, the child of God can begin to spend an hour or two per day, doing his or her necessary daily study. And that Bible student will begin to understand verses and passages which once seemed impossible!

FIVE WISE VIRGINS STARS

(WIKIPEDIA STAR-CHART)

.

 

This constellation was identified on May 22nd, 2014. It is simply five stars, two from the Serpens Constellation, and three from the Hercules Constellation. 

Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

Wikipedia Star-Chart – Corona Borealis

.

What gives this constellation impetus and significance is that it appears as five evenly positioned stars, in a slight oval pattern, as if they were sitting in a meeting, listening, or perhaps watching someone.

.

Second, they appear to be gathered in front of The Crown of Revelation 12 Constellation. (just below Corona Borealis in this Wikipedia star-chart, in which the editor of this site sketched in these two constellations)

GATHERED AROUND THE GLORIOUS CROWN!

Corona Borealis/Bootes & Five Wise Virgins

.

The position of these stars is significant in a number of ways. The first, being that these Five Wise Virgins are gathered around the 12-star Crown of Revelation 12. And the obvious message here is, that these wise virgins represent the faithful portion of God’s Church. And as wise virgins, they understand the importance of winning the glorious crown of victory, which Jesus promised.

.

Listen… “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.” 1st Corinthians 9:24, 25. 

.

And so, God is showing us the difference between the wise and the foolish in His Church. While the wise are gathered around this crown of victory, the foolish are nowhere to be found. This is because the foolish in the Church are much more concerned about the world, with all its pleasures and pursuits. They have little or no time to devote themselves to the pursuit of the treasures of Heaven! They pride themselves into believing that their industrious work-ethics have God’s approval. But God merely sees them only as workers of iniquity.

.

Listen… “An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.” Proverbs 21:4
