God has been working on me for some time, thats why i haven't posted any "serious" blogs lately. I don't know quite how to put them. But they are important. One of the things that have changed for me is the Bible. I no longer read any other version of the Bible than the King James Authorized Version. At first i was one of those people who did not care which version they used because the Word was the Word. That's not true. Even though i have gotten some wonderful messages from the Lord, i grew enough to learn that it was not His total and loving Word that i was getting. It was a watered down version. Lemonade tastes just like lemonade if you add a little extra water, it you can barely notice the difference. I didn't notice. I thought that i was getting the total package when it came to God's Word.
"Then how can you explain how you got God's messages through other versions when you say it wasn't God's Word?" Because God is all powerful and all knowing. He can use ANYTHING to get His point across. Since He knows your heart, He knew you were truly searching for Him and trying to get a connection to Him when you read the Bible. It's not your fault if you were uniformed about the dangers and errors of the other versions. But if you do know how the KJV is the only true version and you still don't try to understand why or obey Him and use it then that is a different story.
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. 1 Peter 2:2-3
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.For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5:12-14
The King James Version has been around a very long time. It is the version all other versions are compared to. Why? Because it is the one true Word of God.
Why would the Word that was so good for everyone before, and was used for so long, just suddenly be obsolete and outdated?
For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.
"How do i know that the King James Version is the only true version?"
I do not believe that you should make any uneducated decisions. So when i kept hearing how the other versions were in fact just perversions, i had to find out the truth. I was astonished at what i found.
The NIV REMOVES scripture!
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. Revelation 22:18-19
Those who read the NIV please look up some passages for me okay?
1 John 5:13
And that is just a few! How can I love the Word of God and learn from it if I do not learn it in it's entirety? And do not say "It's in the footnotes". Because by putting a verse into the footnotes instead of where it should be, it leads credibility to the reader that the verse is not part of the original Bible.
Those who read the NIV can you please compare these passages for me mmm'kay?
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Revelation 22:16
So Jesus Himself is the Morning Star. He says so Himself. And Jesus is not a liar. We all know that. But look at this next passage.
How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! Isiah 14:12 (NIV)
Lets look at the proper KJV and see who they are talking about.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Isaiah 14:12
So the NIV used the name that Jesus calls Himself and used it to name the devil? And no one has a problem with that?
Please visit these sites with a open mind, an open heart, and a quest for the Truth.
They are just a few out there with more examples of the New International PERversion.
