Always stick with King James in the United States. When a book is copyrighted, it is a book that has been written with the imagination/knowledge of the writer. Or maybe it is to take a story and put your twist on it, mixing what you’ve read with what you imagine. Only when one takes what they read and changes it to what they think, can they ‘copyright’ their book, in this case at least.
Most Bibles are under copyright, therefore they are not the original, but only a deceptive copy. When we are told trust no man, are we to trust their ‘word’? Why do almost all copyrighted Bibles start with the King James? They take it apart and add, or subtract what they disagree with and sell it to you as The Word of God, turning it into a fake.
Jesus told us it is free to enter into the Kingdom. If so, should we pay to obey God in Deut.6:8-9? Any Bible claiming to be God’s Word should be free to take any part of that Bible and “keep” it according to the ways of God in Deut. Be it the Ten Commandments, or Sermon on the Mount or any other Scripture God gives us. To keep that which is good. Any Bible that has a copyright makes this instruction illegal.
By using K.J. we can arm ourselves, place prayers in blankets for the homeless, or songs for the lonely etc.. We can give hope, love, peace, and all the things money can’t buy to those in need by using K.J.. God has given each nation one word; you choose which it is for you and yours.
Name calling gets us nowhere. Just because one doesn’t believe as you do, doesn’t mean they are ‘satanists’. There are many Christians who don’t even realize who Jesus is.
He is The Word of God. The Word God spoke, from the heart. The Word God wrote, with His own finger. The Word God made flesh and called Him, Son.
Jesus, The Son, The Word is The Law that hung on the cross and is written upon hearts. Without The Word, This Jesus, no one shall enter into the Kingdom.
In Deut.6:8-9 God tells us how to enter into His Word, His Son. There are many paths to Jesus because anyone can show someone who Jesus is and provide The Word for them. Only through Jesus may we get to the Father.
We the body of Jesus can lead anyone to Jesus, many paths. Once in Jesus, they go through Jesus to get to the Father.
If one sees many paths, maybe they have yet to find Jesus because Christians won’t teach the public who He is. Instead of condemning others maybe we should see the lack of understanding in ourselves. We are all God’s children, vessels for the spirit we choose to follow. If you see someone wrong, teach, and show them The Spirit of Jesus, The Ten Commandments.
It seems people think in order to please God we have to do every one of His laws or O.T.. I want to try and bring it home and gain more understanding. I live in America, so I will use Her as an example. There is no one who can do all the laws of any nation or kingdom. They are required to do the laws that apply to what they do. Say you want to drive a car, any law written that applies to drivers would apply to you. But if you are not a driver, then those laws aren’t for you. There are laws that apply to all citizens. Things like: don’t kill others, don’t steal etc.. These laws we all hold in common.
Okay so we know not all laws apply to us all. God’s laws pretty much work in the same manner. The priestly laws belong to the priests. Likewise, the laws for the kings–or government–belongs to them. Those laws are not for us. We are called the children of God, or citizens of His Kingdom, so we find the laws that apply to us all and those are the ones we learn and do. We leave God’s law to God to do and we do our part.
Ever notice that Jesus didn’t practice the priesthood nor the kingly laws of God while He walked the earth? He submitted to the leader or king. He didn’t do any priestly job. Yet He kept the things they all had in common. The law of the land and the law of His Father.
So, today we would do the same. We obey God by doing the things He ask of His children and we keep the Constitution, the law of the land, or the law of our mother. And of course we apply any law of America that applies to us, mainly what the Founding Fathers gifted us.
Most of us know Jesus is The Son of God. What most don’t understand is that He is also The Word of God.
It seems most people think only those who preach are ‘called’, but not so. We need no man teach us if we see ourselves as children of God. We have a Father and a Mother but everyone alive is a child of God, all made in His image. So we are the children, and they are the parents. We all can hear, love and obey our Father and Mother. We need no other to teach us or tell us what God has to say, we can read it all for ourselves and allow His Spirit to both lead and guide us home.
Jesus is The Word, John 1:1-5
The Word God spoke: Exodus 20:1
The Word God wrote: Deuteronomy 4:13
and The Word God made flesh John 1:14. He is our example of The Trinity.
Jesus told us that the road to follow Him would be hard. The Word goes on to say we will go through much tribulation. We must prepare to make it through that tribulation and stand in His day. Let’s not let the world overcome us and prepare for the time when they come to steal, kill, and destroy everything we have accomplished.
It is because of Jesus all things are possible. That we come to know The Father, who we are, and our goal in life. We are told we must obey God, to love Jesus, so how do we do that? That is only two things we must learn to do.
We are told to “keep” God’s commandments so we look up on how to “keep” the Ten Commandments. This is how we are to obey God. So what better way to figure it out than to follow our Perfect Example?
Jesus tells us that if we love Him to “keep” His word even as He kept His Father’s. So how did Jesus “keep” His Father’s Word? That is found in Deut. 6:8-9. So we take the Sermon on the Mount and obey our instructions in Deut..
It is up to those who know and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ to show, preach and teach others who our God is. We have to show how He protects and preserves us and our life’s work. And that requires evidence of our faith. Learn to “keep” both the law and testimony, to wear it, set your borders and protect all you love and own.
