Not agreeing with every ones opinion, but having enough wisdom, to know, you don’t need to debate it, or argue about it, or try to make someone understand. To respect the differences.
Or even hit them on the head with the truth. Sometimes, you have to go through a few things to get it.
I think I got it….
Thank you Jesus. You see, love, should always be evident. Without trying to make someone feel bad, or to reject them.
We are all on the vine at different places. I may try to show you truth. But I pray to do it with love, and yes respect. Because you are a child of God, as I am.
Yes, live and learn. Christ said, we would be known by the love. “Let the love shine through, by showing respect or if anything courtesy.”
This is one more new motto…..I will carry as a badge of honor, I pray, to His glory.
BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, WHICH GIVETH US THE VICTORY THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. I CORINTHIANS 15:57. KJV.
By Elena Ramirez
It is a sin. To take Gods holy word, copy it, and then use it, for a foundation, to build another Bible version, from that. This is plagiarism.
There is no other way to look at it. For we have been warned in the King James Bible, over and over again, do not change, add, or delete anything from it. So that, when disregarded, has become disobedience. And disobedience is sin.
You don’t have to be a scholar of the Bible to comprehend that. Or someone with a doctorate in religious studies. You just don’t. You take something, that has been established, and preserved for four hundred years, and see, that God stored it, preserved it, and when publishers, have taken that main lump, and then changed it, the plagiarism is evident.
Years ago, and I did not quite understand as well as I do now, but God began teaching me, how important obedience is, how important, being truthful, and honest is. I suppose He was also testing me.
I guess, I had issues. In fact, I know I did, being in denial, one can easily go there, when not given the correct instruction, or knowledge, to comprehend a matter. My past, my sins, are evidence to this. But God did not leave me that way, and I am grateful for my salvation, and for what Christ did on that cross to set me free.
I have learned, to get to the root of things now. I don’t waste my time, trying to understand peoples intentions, or why they act the way they do, in a good or a bad matter. I just sometimes see, what was the end result, and why it happened. Why scratch at the surface, when you can get to the root of the matter? We need a moral compass. The King James is a moral compass, that is not broken.
Sin, in any form of our lives, hurts us. It gives the enemy a legal right to attack any of us. So trying to get to the root of why something happened, tells me in simple terms. That the enemy, who we know comes, to kill, steal, and destroy, had his evil hands on something, so it affected someone else.
But I plead the blood of Jesus.
We have to want to grow. We have to want to learn, that which is right in the sight of God. We have to have fear of God. We have to see there are consequences to disobedience.
When God began teaching me how important it is to be obedient, He took me to the root of the matter, and gave me an example.
It was about ten years ago. I was then writing my poetry, which is also called a Prayer of Hope. I have hundreds of poetry pages, that I would write, here on the internet…..
I had learned to create web pages, which was unheard of then practically, but I learned html. Creating code, for my pages. My attempts were very humble in their presentation, not fancy, but I still learned it. So I could list my poems.
One day, it was brought to my attention, that someone had copied, my writings, and was trying to make themselves look like the writer. By eliminating my name, or my copyrights.
They assumed, in the presentation, that people would recognize them as the author. This is called Plagiarism. It is illegal, in the United States, and it is illegal in the sight of God.
And for the record, not ethical, moral, or honest. How can we be right in the sight of God, unless we strive for truth?
Yet, with technology, as it is, it is very easy, to take someones writings, from a computer, and copy and paste information, to “deceive” someone. Do you see that word, I use deceive?
Well, when this happened, I ran to God in prayer, so sad, so hurt, that someone would do this to me. And God comforted me. I felt His compassion, and He told me then, this is how I feel, when the devil takes my Holy word, and makes people think he is the author.
I did not understand that. What was I missing? Yet I was grateful for his kindness. For I just had a sense, that He would keep me covered in that, and protect me and my writings….but what could I do for him? Then He began revealing to me, the corruption of His holy word. Little by little.
I began getting a sense of what He was talking about when He began revealing to me, how His holy word, had been plagiarized by these publishers for money, and how the enemy, had caused these people to be disobedient, and change Gods holy word, for the sake of money.
By making the excuse of claiming the translation, would be easier to comprehend. He told me, these versions, bring a spirit of confusion.
He also showed me that the pastors that did this, should know better, but were in disobedience, for the people trust the truth to be truth from the pulpit. But it is not.
This is so Wrong! This is wrong, in the sight of God. For if you know your King James Bible, which has been around for 400 years, one could see, the many, warnings God gives. Do not change His word. Period. It is disobedience.
There is a spirit, that is attached to this disobedience. That brings confusion, and brings a distortion of Gods holy word, that changes, the anointing and holiness, to corruption. This is the enemies intention. So when people read another Bible version, they are not reading or seeing and hearing the voice of Father God. They are hearing a voice, that has disobeyed God, and that voice has changed the wording so much so, that the original content, has been misplaced in context. The enemies intention is to distort that. This is the enemies voice. That has made him, the evil one the author of these compromised, changed, and corrupted bible versions. Now I understand. God had me get to the root of it.
So yes, it is a sin, to use any other version, that has been compromised, and corrupted. They were created in sin, and the spirit, in which they instruct does not come from God. Because they disobeyed God. Remember, God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Whenever, I look at a bible verse now, I can pretty much see, if it is a King James or if it has been compromised. I have learned, to hear my fathers voice, and to another, I will not follow. When someone gives me a scripture reference. I immediately reject it, if it is not a King James scripture. Because they are corrupt. They are part truth, but part lie. They are corrupted in disobedience, that brings sin.
So when someone writes, and they list scriptures, I do look and see, with discernment and prayer, as to what they are writing if it is truth.
Plagiarism, is a sin, in any form. Did you know the King James bible has no copy rights? But all the other bible versions do? Why? They do it, to protect themselves. For they know themselves, they took that lump, and plagiarized Gods holy word, but now they want the copyrights for themselves. What deception that is.
God is not the author of confusion. But these versions are confusing, because the anointing, and holiness is gone. People using these versions, are receiving a spirit of confusion, not truth. For the truth has been changed. They have changed the voice. It is no longer the voice of the Holy spirit. Remember the Holy spirit, is holy, and cannot be in something that is of sin.
I write this post, because recently someone I love, gave me something to ponder on. They were not King James scriptures, and the Lord showed me, this person, had copied something from someone else, to make a point. I did not confront this person, with this truth to accuse, but extended love. And grace.
But I see, even in that example, how can we trust someone, if they cannot see the deception in doing something like this? If they think it is o.k. to make themselves look good, by presenting something they did not write, yet it is deceptive. It is plagiarism, to do that. To not truly identify the writer. And it is a sin. And only repentance, sets us free. Because God does not condone sin.
With all my faults, I can say with a clear conscience, I do not plagiarize anyone. My writings, are what they are. With sometimes grammar, that may not make sense, or with an abundance of commas, in punctuation.
But they are mine. I am not perfect. But I do not try and deceive someone to think something that is not based on a King James scripture. Or to steal even a thought. Yes I am inspired by some. But I will not try and get the credit for something I did not write.
I will stand before my God. Knowing this truth, now, as much as I do, and I cannot with a clear conscience write anything, to share, knowing God sees everything we do, and how we even search for Him, and His truth.
And He does not condone and accept these bibles. I don’t believe so. I know He does not, because they are not His writings. It is not His voice. I don’t judge someones salvation. God knows who is His.
But if we do not get to the root of why the body of Christ is in such disarray, in such confusion, we are a part of the disobedience. And I don’t want that in my own personal life. Or yours. Why should I care?
Because I see, from the root, of how it all began, that the enemy, wanted Gods glory. And he wanted to destroy that which was the plan of God, and for mankind. Christ came gave His life for us, but if we do not see the enemies antics in even such a matter as being on the same page with God, this is disobedience.
And just an added thought, did you ever stop to consider that I tell my brothers and sisters in Christ this truth, because I do love God, and I do love my brothers and sisters, and I want to warn them of the dangers of these bibles? Love does not with hold truth. We all talk about love, but we really cannot find Jesus, without truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life. John 14:6. And that is love, and that is truth…..I am trying to help them find the way. I am trying to help them find Jesus by His ways….
If we partake in disobedience, and again, this is why I will not attend a church, where the body gathers together, to hear a corrupted word. Because there is deception in these bibles. The body of Christ, is not where it should be, with God. And especially because we are in end times. We do not use anointed Bibles, together, to be in unity with Christ.
So how can we trust Bibles, that God has not written? Why would any of us want to use something with missing scriptures, and the true holiness, and anointing gone? Why?
Friends, I write this, just to ask you, are you using a bible, that comes from sin?
This is my prayer today, that I wrote on my post, and another ministers page:
My prayer is that God would be glorified. That people would see the sin of corrupted Bible versions. And get on the same page with God. By using the King James bible. I plead the blood of Jesus in this prayer. Thats how important it is to me.
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.
Invite me to your church or ladies group, so I can share my thoughts, to encourage you, to inspire you, to know Jesus through the King James Bible.
Funny thing about life, things don’t always stay the same way. Sure you might be optimistic, one moment but the next day you don’t feel that joy, or constant level of being secure, or confident, or even sure of whats next.
But God made us to depend on Him. And without Him, it just does not work. I know it in my life.
Thats the way God made us. And sometimes, you think you learned a lesson in life, and then you go and do the same dumb thing over again. That could be sin, or it could be just that you take for granted grace, that is extended to you. And God needs to correct you.
The wonderful thing is, God has made a way through Jesus Christ. HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND LIFE. John 14:6. And sometimes, when your not sure of the path, or the lessons of life, you need THERAPY.
Therapy, that comes from Gods Holy word. The King James Bible. I love Gods holy word, just for that. No other word will do, because they are not holy.
I cannot even count the times, I have found an answer, or a sense of God speaking to me, to counsel me, or to show me, my sins, or mistakes, in His Holy word, my King James bible.
There are wonders, and secrets, that can get you back on the right track, so you can fulfill your journey. For by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5. And that includes, the mind, the soul, the spirit, the body……
You see none of us are righteous, none of us. We all need God. But it is His way. Not ours, that works. Just ask Him…..
AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE.
I recently went to go see the movie Unbroken. Directed by Angelina Jolie. I had heard a lot of hype about it, so I decided to go and see it myself.
The story line from what I had heard really interested me, about what this man went through, and suffered, and that he was a Christian.
But I also heard, that his Christianity was not really mentioned too much in the movie. That concerned me, because as a testimony it should give glory to God. I had heard Mr. Franklin Graham, say on television, that a chapter was missing. The chapter, where he went to one of Mr. Grahams revivals and Mr. Louis Zamperini gave his heart to Christ. So I thought, oh no, here we go again, Hollywood is leaving God out of it.
But, that was not the case. Angelina Jolie, did a beautiful job, in portraying this mans life. His struggles, his brothers influence, his sense as a child, that he could not do anything. It showed his great accomplishment to enter into the Olympics. And that he was very gifted. He did not see that, but his brothers influence, really helped him. It is a story of learning great strength, and hope in a time of adversity. This man learned, if he could “take it, he could make it.” This is what his brother taught him.
Then he went to serve our country. And in doing so, he found himself, in a lot of trouble, when the plane they were flying in, crashed, after being attacked from the air patrol, they were in to defend our country.
Three men survived. One friend, was a Christian, who prayed. The other, was a good man but he had no hope it seemed. And….Louis, was a strong man in that which was portrayed of him. But, he struggled too. For over a month I am guessing, they were on a raft. Starving, and not having water, and having the elements of the ocean against them, the sun beating on them, and trying to survive.
In one moment, of the movie, if you did not recognize it, you could miss it. But it being a small moment, was a very great moment, when he told God, if you save me, I will serve you for the rest of my life.
God saved him. Spiritually and physically. Did he know he was saved? Did he know Christ entered his life?
Well, the good news, and the bad news of it was they survived. Two of them. The one without hope had died. But they were captured by the Japanese army, and tortured. Louis suffered, even more so, at the hand of the commander, they called the Bird. This man was ruthless, sadistic, and cruel. For no reason, it seemed like he picked more and more on Louis.
I actually cried, at what he went through. Was it because he was an Olympic star at one time? Why was this commander so cruel to him? Or what? I don’t know. Maybe it was because he was a Christian, though you did not see him pray, any more, in the movie, but he had asked God for help.
My thought is this, without giving away any more of the movie, but when he was rescued at the end of the war, and went home, and was reunited with his family.
God had answered his prayer. God fulfilled his part of it. God saved him! From what happened, and all that he suffered but God saved his soul on that raft!
This is reflected. On the postscript of the movie. He served God.
Now this is just my thought on it, because I haven’t even read the book, or know all that happened, but Louis, began to work out his salvation, with trembling and fear.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. (Philippians 2:12 KJV)
When he came back home to the United States. From what I understand he had a lot of stress, nightmares, and yes baggage from what he went through.
Yes… God used the Billy Graham ministry to help him. To bring him closer to God.
But the glory goes to God.
And with no disrespect to the Billy Graham ministry. I know many are upset that this ministry was not mentioned. But we need to see God in this. And nobody else. You see, I myself, went to one of his revivals and gave my heart to God. I am grateful for Billy Grahams ministry.
But I really believe my salvation began when I cried out to the Lord broken, at one point. Yes, I publicly gave my heart to Christ. But also in privacy. There I believe He met me, and saved me, and then later yes I made it public. And being public, is saying to the world, I am not ashamed that Christ is my savior.
But it is Christ who I know saved me. God, daily guides us. And some ministries do help. But it is our own responsibility to seek God. The Lord will save any of us, if we just ask Him. In this relationship. It is only by the grace of God, that we are saved.
I believe that is why Angelina was so touched by this man, to want to make this movie. She saw what God could do, in someones life. And nobody else. I don’t know if she is a Christian or not, but I have the feeling that she is. I have the feeling she is like many of us, just searching. But his story touched her, and I believe she seeks God. She now, has a clearer sense of who God is. And that is what its all about. Yes some help us. I hope to help some. But I want to be ever so careful to give God only the glory.
But, one thing I have learned, and to get into deeper, in thought. We all try to serve God if we are Christians. But we must be careful not to try and get the glory in some thing, that only belongs to God. And I am not saying this ministry is doing that. I am just saying lets give God the glory….
At the end of the movie, and I am sure at the discretion of Angelina, the director, she made sure, that every one could read, that Louis, had kept his part in serving God. That was the agreement. That was what Louis asked for, in that raft.
So for it to portray more of what happened, is really from your own perspective. And really some things are left to the imagination. But, I believe it did give glory to God. I believe she did a beautiful job in directing it.
And I believe, and pray God bless the Graham ministry. But I believe, we cannot take our eyes off of the fact, that God saved him on that raft, and not afterwards….
Just my thoughts anyway. It was a beautiful movie, and I hope whoever sees it, will see Gods plan, and Gods glory that he met Mr. Zamperini on that raft.
That no matter what situation, we are in, God can save us through His son our Lord Jesus Christ. But my friends, we do have our part. It starts by repenting. By confessing Jesus Lord. By giving our hearts to Christ. By telling Him, we believe He died for our sins. Then we grow… In prayer, in reading a good Bible, like my King James, and just trying daily in this lifetime we are given. To love one another, to forgive. As he did, by going back to Japan, and seeking closure.
Maybe we can make a difference. The testimony of this man, does give glory to God. And his life does reflect he served God. Thats really what it is all about for any of us, that call our selves Christians. And to the glory of God.
