  1. Did the Lord Jesus Lie?

    Posted on

    John 7:8-10 NIV (Jesus lies to his brothers)

    You go to the festival.

    I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”

    After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.

    However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.

     John 7:8-10 KJV (the Lord Jesus Christ tells the truth)

    Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast: for my time is not yet full come.

    When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

    But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

  2. Are modern bible readers part of the body of Christ?

    Posted on

    1 Corinthians 10:32

    Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God

    Some KJV bible believing Christians out there need to apply this God pleased with Christians calling other Christians names?

    The KJV Bible is the Holy word of God without error and other bibles are corrupt, no doubt, but you dont need a KJV bible to be saved. If somebody gets saved, and is presented with the truth of modern bibles being corrupt but refuses to change from an NIV, does that person then cease to be saved? As Paul would say 'God forbid'

    We should uphold the KJV and defend it, read from it, preach from it and love it.

    If a Christian (somebody belonging to the Church of God) uses a modern version I feel sorry that they are missing out on so many truths but are they the Lord Jesus Christ's? Of course, if they are saved by believing the Gospel!

    Calling them idiots, baffoons etc contradicts 1 Corinthians 10:32, Titus 2:8, Galatians 5:13-15, James 2:8-9, Luke 14:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:7-8, John 13:35, Titus 3:2, Ephesians 4:29, 2 Timothy 2:24-25

  3. Translators choice?

    Posted on

    Extant Greek manuscripts (old documents available) used to translate the verses Matthew 2:2-3 are either written entirely in CAPITAL LETTERS or entirely in lower case letters.

    The translators chose therefore what to capitalise (e.g. names, titles etc) when performing the task of translation.

    In the KJV, Matthew 2:2-3 reads;

    Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

    When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

    The NIV reads;

    and asked, ‘Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.’

    When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

    The translators, when translating both the KJV and NIV used the same Greek manuscripts to perform their task. The translators chose what to capitalise and what not to. It is obvious the KJV translators gave reverence to our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ, but the NIV translators would prefer to give that honour to Herod!

  4. Lust of the Flesh, Eyes and the Pride of Life

    Posted on

    1 John 2:16

    For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the father, but is of the world.

    Genesis 3:6

    And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food (lust of the flesh), and it was pleasant to the eyes (lust of the eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise (pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat

    Matthew 4:1-11 (How did the Saviour react when being tempted? - with the word of God, 'it is written')

    Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

    And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

    And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. (lust of the flesh)

    But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

    Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

    And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. (pride of life - show us a miracle, what can you do Jesus?)

    Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

    Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him (lust of the eyes - look at all this Jesus) all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

    And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

    Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve

  5. The Lord Jesus Christ, His robe colours & the tabernacle

    Posted on


    Ezekiel 23:5-6 And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours, Which were clothed with BLUE, captains and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses

    Ezekiel 23:12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most GORGEOUSLY (CLOTHED IN THE COLOUR BLUE ACCORDING TO V5-6), horsemen riding upon horses, all of them


    Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a SCARLET robe

    Mark 15:17 And they clothed him with PURPLE, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,

    Luke 23:11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a GORGEOUS (THE COLOUR BLUE according to EZEKIEL 23) robe, and sent him again to Pilate.

    Our Saviour and the tabernacle wonderfully intertwined in the Holy Bible (Blue, Purple and Scarlet)

    Exodus 26:1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and BLUE, and PURPLE, and SCARLET: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.

  6. Is Jesus Christ God?

    Posted on

    I was talking to a person that classes himself as a 'Christadelphian' this past week.

    This person does not believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, but that Jesus Christ is still a 'saviour' (although the Lord doesn't save a 'sinner' from Hell as he does not believe it exists).

    There are bible verses such as John 1:1 that clearly state who our Saviour is, but the following verses were part of a sermon I was listening to on the way to work this morning that reinforce that Jesus Christ is indeed God.

    Isaiah 43:3

    For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel,thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

    Isaiah 43:11

    I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour

    Hosea 13:4

    Yet I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me

    Titus 1:4

    To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour

    Titus 2:13

    Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;


    If there is only one saviour what does this make the Lord Jesus Christ........He is God.
