Recently my son James came over and commented on our website. He said how he really liked it and thought it was a great way to get the Gospel out to all the world as Jesus commanded us in Mark 16:15. He also said, “couldn’t we use regular English instead of the King James English, so maybe people could understand it better?” As I was praying about this later it came to me that maybe I had not taught him good enough when he was younger about why we use the Authorized King James Bible. The Lord also spoke to me and said “Come on, what is so hard about a few thee’s and thou’s and thine’s.” I mean really is that so hard to grasp? Also Fred said the same thing and even gave us a Bible that was not the King James Version for Christmas. He was just trying to do a kind gesture, but he didn’t understand apparently the following. Perhaps we can help others also to better understand the reasons why we use the Authorized King James Bible which are as follows, but first let me share with you a little Bible History:
1.) The Old testament was first written in Hebrew, and The New Testament was first written in Greek. The Old Testament was translated into Greek in 250 B.C. under the reign of King Philadelphus of Greece. This is an established historical fact that is taught in all Colleges and Universities. It is called “The Septuagint“.
2.) The New Testament was translated in 1611 A.D. under the reign of King James in England. It was translated by 70 scholars and Theologians of the Hebrew and Greek language, and scriptures, and it took them ten years to finish this monumental task. This was accomplished during a time when heretics were burned at the stake, so they were extremely careful to not make any mistakes at all, and to get every jot and comma correct.
3.) This was done during a time when the English language was at it’s most perfect state of perfection, as God ordained. Not the slang English as we speak today.
(II Peter 1:20-21) “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation (that is, they did not originate with man).For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
(II Timothy 3:16) ”All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” God divinely inspired the original King James Bible in the most beautiful form of the English language.
4.) The Original Authorized King James Bible has stood the test of time !
5.) The Original Authorized King James Bible is said to be the most accurate (“supernaturally Identical to the Dead Sea Scrolls, ”Which were found in 1947 A.D. near the Dead Sea, and were actual copy’s of the Old Testament on parchment dated 100′s of years B.C.”). The devil got into the translations of the other Bibles after The Authorized King James Bible and watered them down and left out scriptures and even changed some of them. Some even took out the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ. If you use some of these other translations you are just as good as saying “they are ok, go ahead and use them too.” God would not leave his children in darkness especially in these End Times. Beware don’t let satan beguile and deceive you by these versions from the devil and Hell. I am sure you can understand and endure a few thee’s and thou’s to get the right spirit and interpretation from The Lord. Beloved this is not a light thing! This is very serious to God! You can do a study about this subject for more in depth information from the Internet. If these powerful reasons to use The Authorized King James Version of the Bible when quoting scripture are not enough for you. Why don’t you be like it says in Acts 17:11,“Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, because they searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” In other words don’t just take my word for it, or be like the people who say ” I pay my preacher to tell me what is going on”, but check it out for yourself. That is why everything that I teach I back it up with scriptures, because the last thing in the World that I want to do is to teach something that is not scriptural, and in fact I ask everyone to please show me anything that I teach that is not scriptural and I will change it and make it known. You need to get it right and use the right version. God is not the author of confusion! The devil is, watch out !!! Nothing short of Right is Right !!! You can’t even get the correct interpretation of Bible Prophecy unless you use the Authorized King James Version !
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
