THE KING JAMES BIBLE, any edition, IS the preserved wordS of God.
I take the stand that even the chapter numbers, the verses, and the italic words are there because and only because God wants them there.
God is sovereign, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. He is holy, and He wants us to be holy, so can you give me a good reason why He wouldn’t give us an error free Bible, why He would let error into HIS Bible?
But my teacher said, my pastor said, my friends all say. My advice to you is; give God the benefit of a doubt, stop listening to your friendly clandestine enemies, and pray that God, the Holy Ghost, will give you a CONVICTION that the King James Bible is His final authority.
It is imperative that you get a CONVICTION that God preserved His Words and that He preserve them in the King James Bible.
What is a CONVICTION? It is a belief that you will die for,
a belief that you know is so important that you will fight for it. The virgin birth of Christ is a conviction, which every real Christian will die for.
Yet some clergy question the virgin birth of our Lord Jesus. The reason for that is they do not believe the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God.
Any proof of that? yup Isaiah 7:14
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
How can anyone believe the K J V and Isaiah 7:14 and still deny the virgin birth of Christ? They can’t. But they can get a modern Bible that changes the verse.
Isaiah 7:14 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman[a] shall conceive and bear[b] a son, and shall call his name Imman′u-el.[c]
One reason for the Church’s rejection that the K J Bible is the preserved word of God came about when young men left home and enrolled in Bible school. They were determined to follow God’s calling into full time service and they left with a King James Bible.
[I wonder how many today would take a King James Bible with them to school? But that is another topic for another post]
They were excited as they began their life journey serving their LORD and Saviour.
The professors were as prophets to them so when they taught them that the King James Bible was like any other bible and by extension any other book. They took the poison worm, hook line and sinker!
Those Bible schools robbed their student’s of their CONVICTION on Bible authority, and they are still robbing and stealing it today, and not only theirs but yours also.
If you are thinking that there is no way anyone could rob a Christian of their CONVICTION in anything spiritual, especially the CONVICTION that the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God, you would be right on that.
They never had a real CONVICTION. What they had was a preference. Their Church and their parents will answer for that at the Bema seat of Christ, or at the white throne judgment.
They should have taught them that just as a Christian believes the gospel, so they should believe that the text of the K J Bible is God’s final authority, that it is the preserved Words of the living God.
For THE WORD OF GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing 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.
How bad is christian apostasy? Today, It is a pandemic. Recently I tried by internet to find a K J Bible believing church in the Hazel Park area, it is just north of Detroit Michigan, and I found NONE. I emailed some of those Churches on their stand and they never even answered. Probably thought me to be a troublemaker.
Bob Jones University held the “World Congress of Fundamentalism” in 1983.
Here is a quote from that gathering of Christian soldiers who are always ready to fight the good fight of faith as they contend for the faith once delivered to the saints.
“We reject as heretical the concept that any translation of the Bible is given by inspiration, which has in our generation fostered a cult”
That was 33 years ago. Today very few preachers are convicted over the King James Bible issue enough to take a militant stand for its authority. They are militant on other major doctrines. So why can they not see that those major doctrines, set in the concrete of history, came from the same Bible that they have little or no convictions about. Christians sure can be strange. I think it is a flesh thing!
I will tell you why – They have NO CONVICTION.
What most independent fundamental believers have is a preference. They have convinced themselves that they have a conviction but you fight for your CONVICTIONS, at least if your a man you do, so those who hold the Bible up and say that it is the Word of God without naming it have a PREFERENCE – they prefer it. And in this LAODICEA WAR ZONE THAT JUST ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH.
The “World Congress of Fundamentalism” 1983, was held at Bob Jones University. That great bulwark of Christianity set up a straw dummy by declaring that it was heresy to believe that the King James Bible was inspired.
What they really meant was that if you did not believe that the King James Bible was as any other bible or book then you were a heretic.
can you imagine, even in your worse nightmare, a Christian calling another Christian a heretic because he believed the K J V was God’s final authority?
Can any reader tell me how anyone could get spiritual warts by believing the King James Bible is the preserved Word of God, God’s final authority?
Lester Roloff believed that the K J B is God’s final authority. He went home to be with his LORD in 1982 and one of these days soon Brother Roloff will stand at the judgment seat of Christ to give account for his life and service.
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for WE SHALL ALL STAND BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
I will also be there and so will you if you have been born again.
DO YOU THINK THAT AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST THAT JESUS WILL SAY,
“Lester, how could you have been so foolish as to believe that I was able to preserve my Words. And you even taught others to believe that. I’m so disappointed. Lester, how could you have had that much faith in me?
You should have known that sinful man is more powerful than I am. Lester, all men are depraved and they can’t do anything right so I gave up trying to preserve my Words right after they were penned.”
I WOT NOT! (Acts 3:17)
THE Scriptures teach that Jesus expects a person to possess what he professes, rather that be salvation or the Bible.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
WHAT WILL YOU SAY WHEN YOU GIVE ACCOUNT TO YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR?
I used it but I just didn’t think it was important enough to name it and take a militant stand that You were able to preserve it.
I just didn’t think Your outstanding miracle of preservation was important enough to divide the brethren, so, well, I just let Satan have the victory. Also, I didn’t want to be thought of as ignorant, and to be a castaway by the brethren.
Jesus may say to him, have you never read Luke 8:25
And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
??? WHAT IS FAITH???
That question is answered in Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.
The rest of that chapter gives examples so no one can get it wrong.
FAITH IS YOUR CONFIDENCE IN THE TESTIMONY OF GOD.
If I tell you something and it proves true, then your confidence in my truthfulness will increase.
However if I mislead you then your faith in me will shrink.
The same is also true in our admiration of God.
When we pickup the King James Bible and KNOW that we have “a more sure word of prophecy” then even Peter, James and John had when they heard the actual voice of God on the mount of transfiguration
(2ND Peter 1:19 with Matthew 17:1-8), then our faith will know no bounds.
OUR FAITH grows in DIRECT PROPORTION to our being able to pick up the K J B and know for sure that we are reading the preserved testimony of God.
So then FAITH cometh by HEARING, and HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
DO NOT ERR,
many who choose to serve God in a full time capacity may not even be saved. They choose a religious career exactly like others choose to be a doctor, lawyer, an electrician, or even a drug dealer for that mater. Then they study and move on to be preachers, professors, book writers, et al.
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.
FAITH is so important that it is impossible to please God without it,
But WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
WITHOUT FAITH YOU CANNOT BE SAVED
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in HIS KINDNESS toward us through Christ Jesus.
Eph 2:8 For BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH
Romans 1:17 – 18
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who HOLD THE TRUTH in unrighteousness;
A MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY FAITH
Therefore we conclude that a MAN IS JUSTIFIED BY FAITH without the deeds of the law.
THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.
Do you think faith is BELIEVING that God can’t do that? Would that be living by faith?
THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN FAITH
ABOVE ALL, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
WE WALK BY FAITH
(For we walk by faith, not by sight🙂
FAITH IS SO IMPORTANT THAT ANYTHING YOU DO WITHOUT IT IS SIN
And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
FAITH IS BELIEVING GOD
But, how are we to have that kind of faith if we reject the Bible that God gave us for a cheap substitute or we go to another man, regardless of how devout or scholarly he is, to find out if the Bible really means what it says?
The Holy Ghost gave me my conviction.
God warns us in Deuteronomy 4:2
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
MANY CHRISTIANS ARE INCREDIBLY INCONSISTENT!
Let’s talk with Greg who is a typical modern day Christian.
“Greg, do you believe that God created Adam out of the dust of the ground and actually breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and that He then became alive?”
“How about Moses parting the Red sea?”
“yep” Greg replies.
“How about Jonah and the whale, you believe that?”
“I sure do”
“How about Jesus walking on water, or the finding of the money in the mouth of a freshly caught fish so they could pay their taxes?”
Greg’s patience has ended, “what’s with this guy?” he asks himself.
Greg, in a firm authoritative voice says,
“Look I believe it all. As in A-L-L all.”
“Well then Greg let me ask you one last question, Do you believe that God has preserved His words without error, in the K J Bible?”
Greg is shocked,
“Well, sure in the originals.”
“Do we have God’s preserved Words today?”
Greg is baffled, and with a shaky voice utters,
“Of course not, no copy or translation is perfect, everyone knows that.”
Greg, THAT IS NOT FAITH, that’s
2Timothy 3:5 Having a FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING THE POWER thereof: from such turn away.
THE DEVIL LOVES NONEXISTENT ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
The subtle serpent has bamboozled Christianity into questioning almighty God.
Yea, hath God said
If Lucifer has hoodwinked you then right now get on your knees and confess your sin of unbelief and vow to the LORD JESUS that you will never doubt
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.
The subtle serpent is a counterfeiter
[2nd Corinthians 11:14] and today we have over two hundred translations that he is using to bring doubt and confusion to Christendom.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
One of Lucifer’s lies is that modern day translations are updated K J Bibles. I call that a lie because those who teach that know perfectly well it isn’t true. The K J Bible is the ONLY Bible that was translated from manuscripts dating back to the Church in Antioch. Antioch was the central gentile Church where missionaries were sent out to preach the gospel, and it was also the Apostle Paul’s home Church.
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And THE DISCIPLES WERE CALLED CHRISTIANS FIRST IN ANTIOCH.
A FEW FACTS
Kurt Aland, a scholar, numbered the extant (existing) Greek manuscripts. He tells us that there is a total of 5,255 manuscripts.
90% of those manuscripts agree with the Textus Receptus [T.R.], (the received text) which was the primary source used to translate the King James 1611.
The King James Bible is unique because it is the only Bible translated from the T.R., Every MODERN TRANSLATION IS TRANSLATED from manuscripts that can be traced back to EGYPT.
Every Modern bible from the late 19th century right on up to today has been translated from Three manuscripts that hold preference over all others.

Matthew 1:1 – 25:26
John 6:50 – 8:52
2ND Corinthians 4:13 – 12:6
The above is interesting and Bible believers ought to study the subject so they can help other Christians.
However, those who are not saved, they need the gospel. That old saying is true: what you win them with you win them too.
But, as for me and my house we will believe that the King James Bible is the complete, perfect, words of God and there is nothing anyone can say or do to change that. It is our CONVICTION, not our PREFERENCE.
For me, there is a direct relationship between the acceptance of modern bible translations, and the acceptance of evolution, especially theistic evolution. I am not saying that those who reject that the K J Bible is God’s final authority also believe in evolution. I am saying they both have the same reasoning: I want to believe and I refuse to pray about it, or read or listen to anything that will change my mind. That is a CONVICTION.
PRESERVATION IS A BIBLE DOCTRINE
Psalm 12:6 – 8
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
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.
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME.
Sanctify them through thy truth: THY WORD IS TRUTH.
1ST Peter 1:25
But THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURETH FOR EVER. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Can you be a Bible believer and not believe in the doctrine of preservation? that would be a contradiction in terms, like calling evil good and good evil, like putting light for darkness, and darkness for light.
Woe unto them that CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; THAT PUT DARKNESS FOR LIGHT, AND LIGHT FOR DARKNESS; THAT PUT BITTER FOR SWEET, AND SWEET FOR BITTER!
Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23 WHICH JUSTIFY THE WICKED FOR REWARD, AND TAKE AWAY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RIGHTEOUS FROM HIM!
Isa 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because THEY HAVE CAST AWAY THE LAW OF THE LORD OF HOSTS, AND DESPISED THE WORD OF THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.
Isa 5:25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. FOR ALL THIS HIS ANGER IS NOT TURNED AWAY, BUT HIS HAND IS STRETCHED OUT STILL.
THE SCRIPTURES OR THE BIBLE
Today we have many “bibles”, the Archery Bible, The Shooters Bible, the Cook’s Bible, et al, right along with the hundreds of new updated, easy to read, you must buy our new translation as it will help you to understand the ….
Actually, the Word bible only means book.
But the SCRIPTURE is the unblemished powerful WORDS OF THE LIVING GOD written down and preserved for all mankind!
DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH THAT GOD PRESERVED HIS WORDS IN THE KING JAMES AUTHORIZED VERSION?
2ND Timothy 3:15-18 TEACHES THAT WE DO HAVE THEM
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
All Scripture is inspired.
IF IT IS INSPIRED THEN IT IS SCRIPTURE
IF IT ISN’T INSPIRED THEN IT IS NOT SCRIPTURE
Timothy had the Scripture from a wee little child
You do too
Even if you are too ungodly to realize it.
All Scripture is inspired. And that’s what Timothy had!
The Bereans also had it.
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
The Ethiopian had a copy
The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:
Jesus believed the religious leaders had a copy
And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
CREATION VERSES EVOLUTION
I believe in creation as taught in the Scriptures. I hope you do also. It makes no difference what the scientist say, Christians believe God. Therefore I am going to read what Christian scientists have to say about it. After all, they are as learned as anything the world has to offer. Then as my knowledge increases, I learn that it is PLAIN STUPID to believe in evolution.
THE SAME IS TRUE ABOUT BELIEVING that God preserved HIS WORDS.
After being told by a Jehovah Witness that no translation can be without error, and that many verses in the K J V were added such as 1ST John 5:7, I was stunned. I went to my knees in prayer. The Holy Ghost gave me a mammoth CONVICTION that He could and did preserve His words in the King James Bible, any edition, after that I began reading books on the inspiration and history of the Bible.
And do you know what I found out?
I found out that those who endorse modern translations and those who only have a preference for the King James Bible are lazy, ungodly, ignorant, scaredy cat cowards. When it comes to taking a militant stand against the brethren, they are like phony baloney christians who believe in some kind of evolution.
And I know that includes a great many Christian authors, teachers and preachers who are doing good things in the body of Christ. However, they are also doing irreparable damage to the Church of God which was purchased with the blood of the Lord Jesus.
Revelation 3:1 – 3
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Rev 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
I came to the harsh conclusion, that those who embrace evolution and those who reject or only have a preference for the K J Bible as God’s final authority are kindred spirits. That is they are both ignorant because they want to be ignorant.
Many K J V believing preachers, authors and scholars, as learned as anything the world has to offer, and as learned as any creation-believing scientist, have written many good books that teach and prove that the King James Bible is God’s final authority.
The truth is available and you have no excuse for not reading pro King James books.
If you only have a PREFERENCE for the King James Bible, then SHAME ON YOU. That is kind of like; sure I think the American flag is okay. I fly one in front of my house, but if you trash it, burn it or replace it – well its a free country so go ahead. I mean, I don’t want you to feel bad about America. I want you to know just how loving and tolerant America is, so go ahead, and trash its flag.
If you understand what I meant in that last paragraph, then turn your PREFERENCE into a CONVICTION and take a God pleasing militant stand.
Here is a link to a great blog on the subject
