JUST NAME IT
There are a great many books that tell why creation makes more sense than evolution, or better yet why evolution is stupid and believed by wanna be atheists. However I do not need to read any of them to believe Genesis chapter one as it is written. I also do not need to know who the person is that wrote Genesis chapter one. I do not care if Moses wrote it, Joshua, or anyone else because I believe it to be God given and that goes for the rest of the Bible too.
That brings us to the reason for this week’s blog. I feel the same way about the King James Bible that it is all, every bit of it, God wrote. I believe the KJB is even better than the audio voice of God; that is what Peter taught in
2nd Peter 1:16 – 21, and the cross reference is found in Matthew 17:1-5.
This blog isn’t about how God inspired and preserved it, there are a plethora of books that explain inspiration, preservation and manuscript evidence. I encourage you to read them and at the end of this blog I will list some books and authors. However you do not need to read any of them to know that the King James Bible is the Bible God blesses and Satan hates.
I believe creation because the Bible plainly teaches it and common sense tells me that it is true. That is also why I believe the King James Bible is the preserved words of God. What do I mean by the preserved Words of God? I mean that IT HAS NO MISTAKES, there is nothing in the King James Bible that God doesn’t want there. You can trust every word, every verse, all of it to be the Words of God, and that includes the punctuation. That means that every other bible is corrupt because things different are not the same.
And I didn’t make a mistake in not capitalizing the “B” the last time I wrote “bible”. In all of my writing I never capitalize Bible if it doesn’t refer to the King James Bible.
Every modern bible has, or has had, a copyright and to get a copyright your work must be different enough to make it original to you. So stop with those lies that there is no big differences between the King James and modern bibles. Even so a lot of solid preachers, writers, soul winners, and teachers do not think it important enough to take a militant stand on it. What is up with that? Is that spiritual cowardice? For some it is but for the vast majority they just have never spent the time to catch a true conviction of the fight between Satan and God on this matter of final authority.
I believe that Jesus is God and the Father is God and the Holy Spirit is God, yet God is one not three. I believe Jesus gave His blood so we could be with Him forever. I believe in Hell, and the Devil, and the “time of the gentiles”, and creation. The question is, why do I believe all that? There is only one answer to that question, THE BIBLE TEACHES IT. That is why I believe it is of the utmost importance to take a militant stand on the King James Bible being God’s final authority. Just be courageous and preach Christ and take a militant stand for truth.
When I write “preach” I mean to apply it to every saved person.
Does the Devil try to trick people into believing a lie? Of course he does. He started out that way in Genesis chapter three, and has been perfecting his tactics ever since. He won a huge battle with Westcott and Hort’s new translation of the bible which was published in 1881. Lucifer knew he could use them because they taught that the text which supported the King James was a “vile text.” If you have read, even the slightest amount, on the history of modern bibles you will be familiar with both of them.
Jesus said that “by their fruits ye shall know them” Matthew 7:13 – 20. The modern bibles have produced a the poisonous fruit of modernism, apostasy and a lack of worldly separation, and Romans 1: 28-32 tells you exactly what that means. You should read Revelation 3:14 – 22 there you will find out exactly what Jesus thinks about the Church today in His own words.
The Devil can convince people to believe his lies because when you do not have final authority you have to trust someone or something other than God. You may trust yourself or else take the attitude that no one can know anything for sure because all truth is relative. That is called situation ethics. That is why we have woman pastors and the acceptance of wicked God condemned life styles and sodomites getting married, getting married right in the church, and of course without God’s Word many have an illogical and increasing hatred for the Jews.
There is just no hope in the long run for those who have discarded the King James Bible as final authority. The end product of its rejection and the result of Christians losing the war on the King James being God’s final authority can be seen in the following passages. And the fact that many Christians didn’t – and still don’t – even know a war was going on makes it even worse.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
If you want to know the extent of the apostasy of those who have traded the Bible God uses for modern translations that Lucifer uses then Go and check out some books on prophecy, doctrine, or how to live a Christian life and you will find that those who should know better use modern bible verses in their books.
I am not saying you should not read those books. It is kind of like trying to find a nice restaurant that doesn’t sell liquor, there are not too many around. Many of those authors are saved and servants of the King.
A WARNING: Use your King James Bible to correct them and NEVER believe them when they say; “this is a bad translation or this verse or this passage isn’t in the oldest and best manuscripts. You do not know Greek or manuscript evidence so you can easily be lied to. Just believe God and every man a liar.
Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
It is a conundrum to me. I will never understand why men and women of God cannot see how they are committing treason by hooking up with the enemy to bring in his filthy doctrines. By ridiculing the King James Bible they weaken the faith of the new born. I think that they believe they are helping The Holy Spirit out by using the easy to read and understand modern updated bibles, but like Joel Olsteen, Joyce Meyer, and Rick Warren they are doing much damage to the cause of Christ here on earth. They are a hindrance to the advancement of the faith that was “once delivered to the saints,” Jude 1:3. Therefore if you are not taking a militant stand on the King James Bible then shame on you!
THERE ARE DIFFERENT KINDS OF KING JAMES BIBLE USERS.
Many use the King James Bible because their background has been such that it has always been the Bible used and read and preached from.
That is no different from those who belong to a certain denomination because that is what they were brought up in. They are Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, or whatever, not because they have Scriptural reason but because that is what they have always believed themselves to be. A lot of this type went to seminary and graduated still solid on their particular denomination but no longer even giving lip service to the King James Bible. Why? Because in the beginning not enough Christian moms and dads, preachers and evangelist thought that it was important enough to take an aggressive stand on. They were taking a militant stand on movies, music, dancing, dress codes and TV, while casting asunder the more important things of our faith – a simple faith that God has preserve His Word in THE KING JAMES BIBLE – without which we would have no godly faith.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
NEXT, there are those who believe that the King James was translated from the right manuscripts. At Church someone – not me – asked a missionary what Bible he would use in his Church. He said the King James because it was translated from the right manuscripts. I agree with that but that is not why anyone should be using it.
We should be using it because God has said He would preserve His Word.
Psalm Psa 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Psa 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Psa 12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
That last verse, Psalm 12:8, is what has happened to Christianity from 1900 right on up to today, 2014.
If you believe that the “original manuscripts” were inspired by God and that,
“God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
Then you should also believe He preserved those original manuscripts. If you do not believe that God preserved His Words then you must ask yourself Why He didn’t. Why would God leave His spiritually ignorant, sheep brained children foundering in semi darkness groping to get the truth, the truth that God could have easily given if He had only preserved His Words. Why not just believe that God could preserve His Words and that He did preserve them in the King James Bible.
Lestor Roloff preached a sermon from 1st Peter 1:23 “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1Pe 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
1Pe 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
It was a sermon on the infallibility of the King James Bible. When he closed he held up his Bible and shouted, “Don’t you mess with my mother.” Meaning that according to
1st Peter 1:23 he was born again by the Word of God so that made the King James Bible as near and dear to him as his own mother. Brother Roloff had the power of God on him and he is one of my heroes of the faith. And if you have been born again then start protecting your mother and hold the King James Bible high and fight for its supreme position as it is indeed the Word of God.
ONE REASON FOR USING THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS THAT GOD HAS BLESSED THOSE WHO BELIEVE IT TO BE HIS FINAL AUTHORITY.
God blessed the 18th and 19th centuries because those Christians absolutely believed the King James Bible and because of that they preached it with conviction which resulted in holy Churches, powerful revivals, and success in personal soul winning. Back then when evangelists preached many people were born again and those new born Christians showed evidence of their salvation by going to Church services and eliminating the gross sins in their lives. They were truly children of God and when the evangelist moved on the towns were changed, saloons and gambling and party houses shut down because of a lack of business, and the churches filled up. Back in 1922 they even wrote a song about it, Chicago – In that song they were bragging that Chicago was so evil that even the preaching of Billy Sunday couldn’t shut it down. The stanza reads, “Chicago, the town Billy Sunday couldn’t shut down.”
God’s Word going out with conviction, causing fear of impending judgment, and making the blood sacrifice of Jesus very real to the sinner has been missing for a long time now and most King James preaching Churches have lots of empty pews on Sunday morning services.
Act 24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
Act 24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.
In the 20th century we had a growing acceptance of trashy, deceptive, modern bibles, which the majority of people grew to love but the election and reelection of Obama to the presidency proves that the majority are often very wrong.
The modern bibles were believed to be an easy read and therefore impart a godly desire for holiness. No one warned anyone that, that reasoning left out the Holy Ghost. And the command to study Scripture.
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
When evangelists like Billy Graham get done preaching they leave hundreds of converts behind who had made a public profession of faith by going forward kneeling and saying the sinners prayer but it wasn’t like when Finney or Moody left the towns and the people were noticeably changed, when Billy Graham left, his converts seemed to stay as they were, most showed no evidence of a changed life in Christ Jesus. Billy Graham and his fellow evangelist used modern bibles while Moody and his fellow evangelist used the KJB, and believed it to be the actual authentic powerful Words of God. That is the difference that makes a difference.
I always feel guilty when saying something negative about someone who is out serving God. That’s because I have spent most of my life not accomplishing much. Brother Graham has done wrong by setting the wrong example for a Christian to follow. He has taken the wrong position on the King James and that has resulted in liberal theology and a non-biblical stand on separation. But he has lifted up Jesus for all America to see, but America instead of believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, traded Him for a false Christ which has resulted in our apostate nation. Galatians 1:6-8. That in itself should convict us to ask God for forgiveness for not taking the same stand on the King James that we take on the gospel; you can’t work your way to heaven. I know that because God told me so in the King James Bible.
I AM A NOBODY FOR SURE BUT I WARN YOU THAT IF YOU DO NOT TAKE A MILITANT STAND ON THE KING JAMES THEN YOU ARE PART OF THE REASON FOR MODERN APOSTASY.
Let me give you some good advice before thinking me to be an implacable spiritual idiot, PLEASE get down on your knees and pray about it. Just ask God if He cares if you publically treat His Book like any other book, ask Him if believing the King James Bible is just a personal thing or should you make a public stand on it. Is it as important as the Gospel? I say it absolutely is as important as any doctrine in the Bible because if the King James Bible was the only one then the cults such as the Jehovah Witnesses would not have a chance of growing. Also God will not bless modern bibles because they are lies and they are corrupt, and that rubs off on Him. If the Bible is like any other book then perhaps God is like any other god.
If you are not making a point of naming the King James as the Bible God blesses then you are laying some of the bricks that are being used to build the gold brick road that leads to apostasy and that road ends at the lake of fire.
We tell those we are trying to influence for the gospel that ignorance is no excuse for rejecting Jesus God. Well that is just as true – even more true – for us when we are judged at the bema seat of Christ.
Jas 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Getting down on my knees over this controversy is what I had to do, and it happened soon after I was born again. I tell it here because I believe that God gave me the following experience to know that the King James Bible is the only perfect thing in existence here on this earth and that is why I take a militant stand on its sovereignty.
I had been saved for maybe a year when a couple of Jehovah Witnesses stopped by to get me to apostatize my faith. We Soon got into a discussion on the deity of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour.
I quickly got out my King James Bible with Scofield’s notes and turned to 1st John 5:7
1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
I laid it out for them where there could be no denial. But, they quickly asked me if I was using a Scofield Bible. Proudly and arrogantly, knowing that I had just won an important argument I said I was. They then asked me to read Scofield’s note on that verse. This is what I read:
“It is generally agreed that this verse has no ms. Authority and has been inserted”
They left shortly after that with a check in their win column. I was devastated. Not because of the trinity, there is plenty of proof on that throughout the Scriptures but because I could no longer trust my Bible. That doesn’t seem to be a big item for most folks today but it is – and was – for me.
I had been a strong Catholic. My whole family is Catholic and I was even named after a Jesuit priest. If the Pope had put out an edict saying run around your house three times and howl at the moon I would have done it.
I even used the pope as an example of why we should be fighting in Vietnam. I reasoned that when the pope said something I was not to question it but to obey it as though God Himself had said it. When the Government tells us something we should also not question it, but out of patriotism obey without question.
The pope had been my final authority. I knew I wasn’t smart enough to figure it all out having just a few pieces of the puzzle so I needed final authority. I needed a God approved standard so that I could know the truth. But now with the Bible in question that assurance was on shaky legs at best. If I wanted the truth I needed to go to another type of pope, like scholars or trained preachers. How is that any different than trusting the pope and priests? For me final authority dissolved like an Alka-Seltzer in a glass of water.
I went to my bedroom got down on my weak and shaky knees and asked God what was going on. When I got up my knees were no longer shaky but strong and firm I had absolute convection that the King James Bible was God’s final authority and that included
1st John 5:7. That is the kind of conviction I am writing about and Christendom needs a huge dose of it.
Baptist churches historically were known for their pure stand on the things of God. Many of those things that Baptist Churches condemned, we no longer make an issue about, however good Baptist and Christians of other denominations continue to want to live holy separated lives. Good for them. One way to let the religious world know which side you are on is to identify with the old fashion King James Bible. People still know it hasn’t changed and that those who name it believe it to be God’s final authority for today’s world.
Are you taking a militant stand on the King James Bible? Or is it just another book to you?
THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF AUTHORS AND BOOKS SUPORTING THE KING JAMES BIBLE
About the following list; I am not endorsing any of the ministries or doctrines taught by any of them. I am saying that they take the right stand on the King James Bible and manuscript evidence and even with that some do not go far enough and others may go too far- actually I don’t know if that is possible. I leave that determination between you and Jehovah Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
If none of that works then his church address is:
First Bapitist Church of LaSalle, P.O. Box 1043, LaSalle, IL, 61301
Here is a web address for his book:
NEXT is anything written by Peter Ruckman. He is by far the most educated and knowledgeable person alive today on the infallibility of the King James Bible. However many consider him a heretic and refuse to read anything with his name on it. That is their disadvantage, don’t make it yours. They reject Ruckman because they consider some of his teaching heretical and some of it does get out there on the edge but we have the gift of discernment by the Holy Spirit. I know that we must be cautious but we should never fear to get all we can on any subject as important as final authority. Besides most shun Ruckman because of what others have said not because they have read what he has written, shame on them for that.
Read everything Peter Ruckman has written on the King James Bible.
