Continuing to shine the light from His Word
We are a Bible believing church standing on the king James Bible.
This article is written to show a three fold witness to the spoken Word and scripture. There is a thread of evidence that can only be applied to the King James Bible of 1611. Those from Westminster, Oxford and Cambridge translators and linguists were expert in their field of language when they assembled under the reign of King James (who was an Anglican) for the purpose of translating the scriptures into English for the English speaking people. ( Hence the name King James Bible or the Authorised version of 1611.)
Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
The authorised version, or the av1611 reffers to the spiritual authorisation given to scriptures by Gods people accepting the King James Bible as the Word of God.
This article looks at a three fold witness dealing with scripture.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
The First thread.
The term Scripture means writing as words existed before they were put into print, the spoken word, 2 Peter 1:21 For the Prophecy came not in the old by the will of man: but by holy men of God sake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. The word Bible means book singular, it is made up of books that when put together make a complete book without contradiction to the spoken word. Jesus said he had come to fulfil scripture, that is the spoken word, so it is important that scripture dosen’t contradict what Jesus said. We have now in the 21st Century over 200 English speaking Bibles since the King James. (SeeList below) The Old and New Testament are connected by a thread that binds the two. The thread is the person of Jesus Christ.Since the king James Bible, there has been many Bibles, so how then would you know which one for sure? The best way is to likened this as with counterfeit bank notes, they may all look the real deal, have the right words written on them such as Bible, and have the support of those that printed them such as religious organisations and persons. But when put up to the light of the spoken word in this case Jesus said: he had come to fulfil scripture, the one thing that should make them genuine is missing such as what is called a hall mark,or water mark, or an official mark or stamp that can’t be copied which makes the article genuine. As with the King James Bible that thread, or stamp can’t be copied, as it is a thread that runs right through the whole article and that thread is Jesus Christ himself. Once you understand what the hall mark is, you will search to find it, if you can’t find it then you are holding a counterfeit which is in reality is worth nothing more than the paper it is printed on. ( It is not that the counterfeit dosen’t contain scripture, but what it does is corrupt scripture. Quote: Every Bible except the King James Bible makes Jesus Christ a liar to the spoken word, because the written word contradicts the spoken word. You can’t find that in the King James Bible…. So as a believer do you have Gods word on it? ( Yea have God said…Genesis 3.)
The below list is a good example of how many English Bibles have been printed since 1611
At the time of Christ the common language was Greek from Alexander the Great, the Jews spoke Hebrew as of the Old Testament and Rome was in power. When the Bible was translated, the English language was at its height, it was then and is now the common language of the world. The time couldn’t have been better for theBible to be printed in English, as it was at the height.
The purpose of translation has to been to put the scripture into the common language. This was first seen by the miracle in Acts two when the Jews from other places assembled on the Day of Pentecost and heard the Disciples speak the wonderfull works of God in the languages of where they lived.
When it comes to the translators of the 1609 Douay-Rheims Bible and the 1752 Challoner’s revision of the Douay – Reheims are the Catholic translations which do not follow the pattern to put scripture into the common language. Instead they kept the scripture in Latin and had no intention of putting the scripture into the common Language. Note: Catholicism will always take the scripture out of the hands of the common people in this case hide it, so as to keep interpretation in their court.
The Second Thread
The Spiritual witness to scripture.
The Doctrinal witness to scripture
The Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
Do other Bibles then contain scripture? The majority of them do, some obviously more than others. But they all have one common thread and that is they attack what is known as sound doctrine which relates to Jesus Christ. I have given a list bellow so you can study and compare for your self.
- The Deity of Jesus Christ. (God was manifest in the flesh)
- The finished work of Christ. ( Salvation is by Grace alone and not by works )
- The second coming of Jesus Christ. ( The pre- Tribulation and pre- Millennial reign of Jesus Christ )
- The eternal security of the Believer. ( Doctrine of predestination )
- The Body of Christ, the Church the Bride of Christ, made up of all born again believers both Jew and Gentile, ( not to be confused with churches, which you can see.)
- The next event on Gods time table is the mystery of the has the rapture of the Church. ( This is when the Body of Christ meets the Lord in the air before the Great Tribulation)
- The final authority on all faith and practise is the King James Bible.
The question was once asked me, what is a Bible Believer? In my case growing up around Christians I believed the King James Bible was the Bible long before I found Salvation in Jesus Christ. The term Bible Believer is related Generally to those that recognise that there is only one book that is the final authority on all faith and practise. The Characteristics of a Bible a believer are unique to no other book, than the King James Bible.
