What the Bible Says
Luke 8:11 ...The seed is the word of God.
John 12:16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. The disciples understood later by remembering what was written about Jesus. That is in the Old Testament. Two lessons: 1. The Old Testament is a revelation of Jesus Christ. 2. We need it to know and understand what was going on, and what He fulfilled. If what is written, both Old and New Testaments, is not preserved without error, then we have no way of knowing if Jesus Christ is the true Messiah! Romans 15:4
John 12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. The Bible mutilators always piano help the King James Bible and those who use and believe it as if there were a great huge number of us faithful to it and we had some conspiracy. They are just afraid of losing their following ($$), so they exaggerate and lie. Matt. 7:14
John 12:37-41 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: 38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. They were controlled by the word of God. But, they originally made choices that placed them in that group, such as refusing to be baptized by John the Baptist perhaps. Like Pharoah in Moses time, they set themselves up to be given a hard heart ...because they received not the love of the truth...but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess. 2:10-12 You better chose carefully which side you are on, because once God has judged you worthy of a hard heart, it is too late to change your mind. See Romans 1.
John 12:42-43 ¶ Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: 43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. This is why many preachers and people will not become King James Only. They need men's praise. Some simply need it to fan their pride and "self-worth," others need it to succeed in their religious career ($$). They would be thrown out of the club if they took a stand for the true word of God. Some that are doing this are well apiano coverse that the King James Bible is the only true Bible in English, but their support/salary means more to them than the praise of God! 1Tim. 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Prv. 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare...
John 12:47-48 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. They will be judged by the King James Bible that they heard and rejected. Again, it is tied in to salvation. You cannot receive Christ and reject His word! There must be a pure Bible, or there is no salvation, for our salvation ties to it most directly.
John 13:18 ¶ I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. Again, note how much Jesus life revolved around fulfilling scripture. He is our example (1 Peter 2:21) and we should do the same. There are many, many admonitions to Christians in the New Testament that we should be striving to fulfill.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jesus is the truth and so is the word, John 17:17 ¶ Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. Jesus is the Word, John 1:1. Jesus Who is the Word and the truth, is inseparable from the written word which is the truth. They are both essential for salvation.
John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. So we see that the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of truth. John 17:17. He would not lead someone to a Bible that is not true; nor to attend a church, nor work in a mission that is not faithful to the true word of God. Anyone that thinks they are lead thus is not following the Spirit of truth. [Note: you can tell which Bible is the true one by which one still has the comfort and the Comforter! That is the KJB in case you do not know.] John 16:13
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. So we cannot love Jesus, nor have His love, nor the love of the Father unless we have His commandments and keep them! Also, He will not manifest Himself to us. Therefore, if God's word is only perfect and without error "in the original manuscripts," we cannot be saved any more because we do not have His commandments and obviously then cannot keep them! Do you really think that Jesus would tell us to do something that is impossible? Be a Philadelphian! Keep God's word! Rev. 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. It gets harder all the time, but we must!
John 14:23-24 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. Again, loving Jesus - hence salvation - is totally attached to His word. If we do not have His true word and keep it, how can we love Him? And, since we supposedly do not have His word, He and the Father will not make their abode with us. Thus there is no way to be saved if the Bible corrupters are right!
v. 24 You can tell the people that do love the Lord by who keeps the pure word - King James Bible in English. If they have abandon it and piano help it, they do not love Christ and He is not in them! This is God's idea, not ours nor any man's. If you don't like it, tell Him about it!
