“Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he approveth.” Romans 14:22b
**The mark of the beast does not appear until 3.5 years after the rapture, so the church will not have to deal with the antichrist or the mark of the beast. Unfortunately, those saved during the tribulation will. My hope is that some will see this article or learn about the issue before it’s too late. (See, Revelation chapters 13-14).
More information on the timing of the rapture, the tribulation, the mark, and the second coming can be found here:The Timing of the Mark of the Beast
As the readers of this blog know, the Bible version issue, which I once considered ridiculous, is now dear to me, and one that I approach with a great measure of seriousness, since the Bible is God’s voice to his beloved children. We cannot afford to listen to and teach from an adulterated Bible. As I studied this issue in great depth over a period of many years,, I was shocked to see the stark, substantive differences between the new versions (ESV, NIV, NASB, etc.) and the King James Bible (KJV), a version I had dismissed entirely some 25 years earlier as antiquated and unnecessary.
The new versions and the KJV flow from two entirely different streams of Greek manuscripts, which I have written about in some detail here: The Bible Version Controversy . That article also contains links at the end, which show specific departures (deletions and additions) from the Majority Greek text (which is the Greek text used by the KJ, Luther, Tyndale and Geneva Bibles), by the ESV, NIV and NKJV. I encourage anyone who wants to understand this issue in more depth to read my article, and then review the links at the end.
It has recently come to my attention that all of the new versions state, in Revelation 13:16, that the mark of the beast will be “on” our right hand, while the KJV(and the Geneva Bible) says that it will be “in” our right hand. “On” and “in” are NOT the same thing, and based on my research into the Bible Version issue (see link above), I believe that this critical, eternity-affecting difference is intentional, and will be used to deceive thousands and perhaps millions into taking the mark of the beast. The ESV, NIV, NASB, et al. will be used to prove to those alive during that horrific season, who are concerned about the mark, that they can and should take it in their right hand…since “in” after all is not “on,” and how could the ESV possibly be wrong since so many of the men I respect love it??
Based on technology readily available today, and already in use in some places in Europe, I believe that it is highly likely that the “in” referred to in the KJV means an RFID chip. In Europe for instance, RFID chips encased in silicate glass have been inserted into the right hands of some in order to store medical and contact information, while in Sweden an inserted chip has been, in at least one case, used to open locked doors without a keycard at an office building. I certainly wouldn’t swear by this or say that this definitively will be the mark, but it is highly suspicious given the fact that these chips can store banking information and other personal details and are injected with a needle…in to one’s right hand.
My challenge to all Bible believers is to contemplate this” on”/”in” difference and review the Bible version issue again, carefully. The Bible is God’s voice to us and we need his authentic word now more than ever with all of the charasmatic false teachers rising up, and the dark opposition to the biblical Jesus that we are seeing wax stronger every day in our sick and godless society. The version issue is especially important in the context of the mark since an eternity in heaven vs. an eternity…on fire…in hell…is at stake. While we may or may not be here when the mark is unveiled, those we have influenced will be…and if the Bible we taught from and praised, is used to dupe those we love into taking the mark, it will not go well for us at the judgement seat of Christ – and as for those deceived into taking the mark: “The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the lamb…and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever; and they shall have no rest day and night….” Revelation 14:6-11. I want no part of leading anyone into that horrific fate.
Paul tells us in Romans 14, that, blessed is that the man who is not condemned by what he approves. Romans 14:22b. May we not condemn ourselves by teaching and even using a Bible that, among many other things, is working to seduce people into taking the mark of the beast, lest you, by ignorance, pride, the fear of man or hard-heartedness, lead others off the cliff and into the fiery pit where the worm never dies and the fire is never, ever quenched.** We are all watchmen…..
Ezekiel 3:17- 21
“17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.”
** I was ignorant of the Bible versions issue for 25 years, and was a huge NIV 84 and NKJV fan. However, when my wife, after reading through 6 different versions, noticed huge, substantive differences between the KJV and others…I didn’t want to hear it. I debated her hard-heartedly for about 8 months…but ultimately the great weight of the evidence was so overwhelmingly in favor of the Greek text used by the KJV Bible (the Textus Receptus/Majority Text/Byzantine Text), that I knew my beloved NIV belonged in only one place…the trash.

I also caught the’ in versus on’ discrepancy when I was doing the research for my book on the errors of the modern versions. It is a valid concern that should be addressed, but so few have done so.
I was very impressed with your article on the versions and the validity of the KJV. How can we claim to have a love for Jesus if we have no regard for the preservation of the Word? He IS the Word!
I noticed you said we may or may not be here to see the mark of the beast. I feel if you would give the rapture controversy the attention you have the Bible version issue you would come to see the Pre-trib error is also not correct, and is damaging to the understanding of the believer.
That falsehood will adversely affect millions of believers in a way that is almost beyond comprehension in the near future, and even now seriously corrupts the belief system of those who embrace it. We do not want to have to give an account of the failed faith of those who stumble in the hardships ahead because they were convinced they would never see those times.
I invite you to examine my articles on the rapture issue and pray about whether you have a proper appraisal of that matter. It is not just a matter of timing; or of one opinion against another; but of a satanic strategy to bring God’s people into the final period of this age out of sync with God and out from under his blessing. Please consider this post that explains that strategy and how it is playing out in our midst:
I thought I might reblog your Bible version article to my site if that is ok. Let me know if you approve.
Blessings in Jesus Christ to you;
I approve of your request to reblog this and any other post of mine. Thanks for that.
I will read your article on the rapture sometime in the near future. I used to be hardcore post trib. due to my natural pessimism and disdain for the tacky pre trib loving televangelists….but Revelation 3:10, David Cloud’s teaching, another good video series explaining the going up in the rapture vs. the return of Christ on his white horse, along with a few other passages along with the fact that both Noah and Lot were spared from God’s wrath, have moved me into the pretrib camp …but I’m not permanently locked into any view and really, it shouldn’t affect how we live. I do believe all of the seals are God’s wrath and we aren’t appointed unto wrath. That being said, I do promise to check out your article.

Brother, I just had another thought that I NEVER had before, and I believe it is from God. The phony bibles are going to be used right after the rapture to promote an antichrist bible! Their contradictions and errors that we’ve been trying to show others, will be used to discredit the KJV Holy Bible and each other! They will bring them to the public’s attention and ask the same question of them as we ask of those who despise the KJV, “Which version is the truth?” They will say that none of them can be relied upon, and that they have the truth (introduction to a New World Order bible, hot off the presses!). This will be a part of “the disclosure of alien overlords” and a continuance of the “strong delusion” the Church has been under since these per-versions came out in the ’50’s! Oh my! I can envision it happening!

So a god fearing, god loving, imperfect Christian (as we all are as humans) could be duped as you put it and wind up burning in hell for eternity?
Yes anonymous one. Jesus calls Satan the father of lies….and why does he lie? He lies to make us think that our good deeds and good intentions will get us into heaven. In this case, ignorance of the actual Bible and trusting in an nwo satanist to explain the Bible to you- well intentioned or not, will get you thrown into hell. That ain’t my words, that is the words of Jesus Christ himself in Revelation 14. Paul even said that he was aware of satan’s schemes to destroy men.
If we truly are saved and have the Holy Spirit, we should know not to take any mark or chip anywhere. But those moving towards salvation who don’t know the word or have the spirit…will be snatched up by Satan, as in the parable of the sower.
Quick note here: Happy are those who read the truth and follow it (my words).
For 43 years my husband is a born again Christian and on 26 September I will also be celebrating my 43rd year of being born again as well.
NOTHING compares to the *closest* literal Textus Receptus Greek-Aramaic Scriptures that our Father in heaven gave us as the King James Bible, written by men who were guarded under orders of King James, as anyone can Google to find the history thereof. Anyone who wants proof can find books that prove this out; there’s no mystery here. God is God and what HE says is final. His Spirit speaks, convicts, saves and encourages through a LIVING WORD, not through a watered-down Gospel, which is no Gospel. His Word explicitly says NOT to remove or add anything to what He has said.
As for the Pre-Mid-Post controversy, this has been going on as long as Satan has been down on this earth convincing mankind that “hath God said?”. An emphatic YES we are Pre-Trib…the Bible says so.
Here’s even a common sense answer: Why would Jesus Christ have His BRIDE…not the Church, but His BRIDE endure misery, torment and all the horrors that are to be unleashed on the earth, then take them up to heaven for a BRIDAL DINNER, then have them enrobed in white garments, ride upon white horses as His army to do battle and after all that, reign on the earth? Do we humans beat up our brides then take them out to dinner??
There are so many Scriptures to PROVE that the Pre-Tribulation is how God, who is PERFECT in ALL HIS WAYS, has planned this out that the other two “plans” do not fit in the overall end time scenario. Hey, if anyone wants to stay here and go through all that, that’s up to them, but it IS NOT SCRIPTURAL, NOR IS IT CORRECT.
Keep preaching the truth. My husband and I pass out tracts, give out Bibles and preach and we will never stop until we enter into our eternal home.

Amen! I look forward to seeing you both there.
I love that you give out tracts.! It’s hard to find good ones but I found one on MWTB called Why did Jesus die? The Kjv version. Where are you guys located?
Originally from the Jersey Shore (USA), and our temporal home is in the outskirts of Myrtle Beach, SC (USA). Grew up approximately four miles inland from the Atlantic.
My permanent home won’t have any watery oceans, but it WILL have a sea of glass and the river of life (Rev. 4:6, 15:2 and 22:1).
As for tracts, Chick tracts are good ones; simple message (non-denominational and KJV), Gospel Tract Society has good ones, Pilgrim Tract Society, and a few others.
There is this company that puts out excellent ones on all sorts of current topics (Halloween, Santa, 666, Jesus Christ’s resurrection, Rock music,Abortion, etc.):
They are a Baptist company, but you can’t beat their solid teachings in these tracts:
Go to http://www.av1611.org/index.html or look for “Dial the Truth Ministries” in the Google search box.
The reason why they’re called “Dial the Truth” is because you can call up and receive a pre-recorded message about salvation.
NEVER stop testifying or giving out tracts…or Bibles. It is your First Amendment right (of course you being an attorney knew that, lol), and it was ruled constitutional back in 1943 Lovell v City of Griffen, GA. Vol. 58, pg. 12, 4-15-38. Supreme Court Justice Black in 1943 also decided that the judgment against two tract distributors in Dallas be reversed. Additionally Justice Roberts said that street meetings do NOT need a Permit (Nov., 1939), as did Justice Black in 1946, US Supreme Court Justice Douglas (7/23/48) concurred. (Kunz v NY Argued October 17, 1950 decided January 15, 1951. 8-1 decision. Chief Justice Vinson delivered the opinion, it went to the Court of Appeals and NY affirmed it, HOWEVER (300 NY 273, 90,N.E. 2d. 455) on appeal the US Supreme Court REVERSED it. (p. 295).
Another citation is : (Hague v C.I.O. 307 U.S. 496, 515-1939).

Quite welcome…all anyone has to do is Google “First Amendment Rights and the passing out of Christian literature” or “…of Gospel Tracts”. I checked all this out years ago and then searched again recently to see if any of this has been overturned, since the Bible says that “your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8) and this is just one avenue that he chooses to destroy the Gospel.

I have had major Internet problems; actually it’s with the Internet company, of whom I am cancelling on the 19th and a day or two later starting up with a new internet. I will get back to you when I have the new one set up. Always happy to “chat” with others of like minded faith and principles.
In the meantime, husband and I are still passing out tracts. We went to a mall Saturday and my husband was rejected 😦 Well, the tract was, not him, lol. As for the ones I passed out? People took them. I have one called “Beer Belongs,” published by the Gospel Tract Society that I fold up and put inside those six-twelve-24 cartons whenever I can…as deeply as I can reach down inside. Of course the tract is NOT condoning beer; it’s showing what the commercials DON’T tell beer drinkers…
I also hide tracts everywhere I can. Tuck them down inside the cushions of restaurant seats, furniture store seats, inside those paper tissue dispensers in the toilet stalls, inside the baby changing tables…anywhere. Just use your imagination.
I forgot to mention a few other tract companies: The “Little Bible Ministry,” which publishes these tiny little booklets\tracts which are great to put in small spots. http://www.littlebibleministry.com. OR 1-800-724-0724. They’re outside of Philly, PA.
I have a big list of FREE tract companies as well.
Another good company (not sure if I told you already) is: Pilgrim Tract Society, PO Box 126 Randleman, NC 27317-0126. We get their monthly newsletter, but when I’m finished reading it, we throw it out, so I don’t have their phone number, but I’m sure you can find them on the Internet. 😦
Had to buy four more “Gift and Award” Bibles to pass out, just in case we run into someone who doesn’t have a Bible (which we did about two weeks ago).
They usually cost about $5.99 or so and of course KJV ONLY…which if you are aware, there’s an entire “conspiracy” dedicated to “King James Onlyism.” Only Satan could come up with that one!
Keep up your street ministry and passing out tracts.
Email address is temporary…
I started my Christian walk with the KJV, but switched to NIV because my church used it. I found a tract by Gail Riplinger, with lists of words, changes, additions, omissions. I was shocked and horrified! I went back to the beloved KJV and have been in a “battle” of sorts every time the KJV is mentioned, ever since. When I read what Gail wrote, I checked each one out to be SURE she was telling the truth. My first thought was, Now I know what will cause the Falling Away! To fall away, one must be somewhere from which to fall away. That’s the King James Bible! (My opinion)
As for pre-mid-post, I have settled on Pretrib. Midtrib makes sense, but there are the 7 yr verses, such as 7 yrs burying the dead after Israel’s war; 7 yr trib, 7 yr peace treaty, & The “caught up together to meet the Lord in the air…” BUT, if for some reason, I should go through part of it or all of it, my faith would remain strong. God does not lie, and I will trust Him, no matter what. .
Go bless you! See you on the other side, brother!

Amen! I truly thought the kjv was irrelevant…but now I understand that is essential and the only English Bible that hasn’t been horribly and intentionally altered – either for mammon or for a desire to corrupt the word of God. It’s really an unbelievably brilliant scheme by the devil. People think I’m insane for fighting so hard for the kjv, but really, if one studies the issue in depth, there is NO other option. Now I love the kjv and recognize the alterations everywhere. On my other version article I linked charts showing changes to the niv, esv, and nkjv. People hate Riplinger too….because she was the first to point out the occutic forces behind the changes…as if Satan would never try to change the Bible! Well, we do still have an uncorrupted version, the kjv, yet people hate it and trust their pseudo intellectual pastors who don’t understand the issues – only the one side they were spoon fed at seminary. It took a lot to move me, but once I saw the cold hard evidence…I was never, ever going to move back. Thanks for the encouragement!!!

As for pre trip/post trib, I used to be 100% post…but I’m now pre. Below are a few disorganized verses and notes that I’ve jotted down on my phone to explain why:
1) Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also .will keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell on the earth. (Revelation 3:10 KJV)
2)“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
Luke 21:36 KJV
3)For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 KJV)
4)Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. (Zephaniah 2:3 KJV)
5)For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. (Psalms 27:5 KJV)
6) “But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.”
Romans 2:5-11 KJV
7)“Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”
Isaiah 26:20-21 KJV
– Not appointed to gods wrath
– Noah’s family saved from wrath
-As in the days of Noah people will be eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.
– Lot saved from God’s wrath
– Says God comes like a thief in the night in several places but once the peace treaty is signed we know it’s 7 years exactly

Hello again, Brother. It’s the Jersey-Myrtle Beach people again! All set up with email now. We are with AT & T as our Internet server…Praise be to God!! and I mean that not as a cliché! Anyway there are numerous books out about KJV Only:
Here’s a few to get everyone started: “God Wrote Only ONE Bible,” by Jasper James Ray.
Address (because he is VERY hard to find):
Eye Opener Publishers PO Box 7944 Springfield OR 97475. We personally have owned this book since 1973. He originally wrote it in 1955, so I am sure he may not be around anymore.
I believe this book costs around $9.95 or so, BUT you have to write to them first to get an order blank. Besides the books, they will send you tracts about the “key references” that show about 200 additions and omissions other “bibles” add or remove from the KJV and the Textus Receptus from which the KJV was translated. Of course there are a lot more than 200; this is a small sample.
Also on this order blank are other books that are extremely in depth and in defense of KJV–and excellent as well:
“Counterfeit or Genuine” by David Otis Fuller, D.D. “The King James Version Defended” by Edward F. Hills “Which Bible?” by David Otis Fuller, D.D. and lastly,
“True or False?” also by David Otis Fuller, D.D. There are a few more titles–well worth sending for.
How did we come across JJ Ray? I see in my first “God Wrote Only One Bible” book ( I also bought another one in case I ever lost this one) that I received it by donating to Dr. John E. Douglas, World Missionary Evangelism, Inc. of Dallas, so that had to be way back when we were first starting our walk in Jesus Christ, not to mention the type-font style in the book and the dating. Most likely we heard Dr. Douglas on the radio, since that was the only way we would have any connection to anyone back then (no computers in 1973; they wouldn’t come into homes until almost 20 years later).
I am giving you our email address, so that you can write back if you so choose.
Keep up your street ministry! I know of a young man who does this almost daily on the streets of Manhattan, which is a very tough area to do this–you REALLY have to be led by the Spirit of God to do this up there!

If you do send your email, send it through the contact form so it will be private. Thanks for sharing some of your story. I look forward to hearing more.
There are 5 editions. Which one is best, or are they all the same? Thank you.
re: Which Bible.
They are all the same in substance (they use the same Greek text) but they have minor spelling/syntax/grammar updates.
Dear “Sola Scriptura”,
As a french speaking person, I don’t understand perfectly what you write, nor do I write perfectly in english. So please excuse my poor english.
First, I would like to say that I appreciate very much when someone says “…but I’m not permanently locked into any view and really, it shouldn’t affect how we live”, like you did in your response of September 5, 2016 at 3:47 PM.
I know that for some subject you are “locked into a precise view” (for instance: love of God, reality of Jesus-Christ, resurrection of Jesus-Christ and so on), but for others you remain open because it does not affect your faith. And I am very thankfull that you have that open attitude in these cases.
My reply comes about the written “on/in the right hand”: the most recent informations I have got about the RFID are that this device has improved in the ways of being now very thin, very supple and even self recharging (by the differences of temperature of the human body during the day/night, these differences being the biggest -1 or 2 degrees- where on the body? Under the wristles and on the forehead, between the eyes!) and it exists now under the form of a patch you can fix on your (right) wristle, under it.
This patch is shockproof, waterproof and is certainly a long life device.
Now if this device becomes the mark of the beast, it would react like a credit card with Near Field Effect and we can imagine that a way to secure its using could be an other (invisible) mark (QR code?) between the eyes to be read by an armless (invisible) laser that would confirm that both codes are matching.
So, the “in/on the hand” becomes less important.
But I don’t mean that the different versions of the Bible are all equal in “quality”. Personnaly, in french I use different versions, one of them is the “Annotée de Neuchâtel” wich is 137 years old and mainly based on the Received Text. In english the KJV is my reference.
I look forward reading your “The Bible Version Controversy”.
I am 63, saved by God in 2012 (“Born again in Christ”) and I didn’t want to join any church after my conversion. But God put (coming from Mexico!) the son of a preacher man in my house (in Geneva, Swiss)… the exact day after my conversion. He was (and still is) an Adventist of the seventh day. God organised we can be together during about 10 days. After he left I went to an Adventist church to see if they all were “Sola scriptura” like him… and I remain with them from this day on.
I must say that I have chosen this church because they have never pretended to be the only true God lovers nor having said other churches are wrong: they only are open (like you seem to be) and looking forward to the saving of a maximum of creatures of God.
In this aim/purpose they try to make know what has really happened on october 22 of 1844 (begining of the Judgement), after having studied the prophecies of Daniel.
It moves them (us!) to say to the world: “YHWH is Love (1 John 4.8), Yeshua loves you: repent and recognize Him as your unique saviour, keep his (all the 10) commandements (Revelation 14.12 and 12.17)”.
Let’s pray for all the human, created by God wishing all will be saved (but not all will be, mostly or uniquely because part of them don’t want to be saved).
My dear brother…thank you for the long and detailed message. I very much enjoyed reading about your journey with Christ. I am out of town and don’t have time to address all of the 7th day problems but there are many and they are serious. I have personally read many of Ellen White’s false prophecies and ones she changed after she realized that she was wrong. Deuteronomy 28:20-22 is very clear: if someone gives one false prophecy they are a false prophet, and according to God must die. Their semantic dance with the law/commandments is also deeply heretical and spits in the face of what Jesus Christ did once and for all with his own blood on the cross.
A few quick verses:
“I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”
Galatians 2:21 KJV
“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”
Galatians 3:1-3 KJV
“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.”
Colossians 2:13-17 KJV
“Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:24-26 KJV
“Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;”
Romans 3:20-21 KJV

If they aren’t 100% TR – and I know of only 3 (kjv, Reina Valera, and Judson’s Burmese translation), then they are false bibles and the authors are intentionally trying to pull you away from a true TR bible.
Final grace only passage followed by a works verse in 10.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:8-10 KJV
Also, if there is ever a direct linguist contradiction between the Alexandrian text and the TR, it is intentional and from Satan. Trust only the one English TR Bible and throw away the rest.
My online version of the KJV says “in”…..I don’t know what to think???
“In” is correct. “On” is in the new versions and is incorrect.
The Greek word translated in Rev 13:16 as “in” is translated as “upon” in other places in the KJV. I think you are splitting hairs; the translators had to make a choice & that goes for the 1611 KJV translators as well. Research and you will find the translators of the KJV put variant renderings in the margins of the 1611 version of the KJV.
A primary preposition properly meaning superimposition (of time, place, order, etc.), as a relation of distribution [with the genitive case], that is, over, upon, etc.; of rest (with the dative case) at, on, etc.; of direction (with the accusative case) towards, upon, etc.: – about (the times), above, after, against, among, as long as (touching), at, beside, X have charge of, (be-, [where-]) fore, in (a place, as much as, the time of, -to), (because) of, (up-) on (behalf of) over, (by, for) the space of, through (-out), (un-) to (-ward), with. In compounds it retains essentially the same import, at, upon, etc. (literally or figuratively).
Total KJV occurrences: 885
I read the same article as you did regarding the various options for the translation of the word in question (in/on/upon). My point, when coupled with my longer article on the Bible version issue, is who do you trust: two wicked men who loved the occult, didn’t believe in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus for our sin, loved Darwin, intentionally edited hundreds of verses to delete out sound doctrine (or add in catholic doctrine), actually called the Textus Receptus vile, believed in purgatory, believed in baptismal regeneration, rejected the creation account and the flood, were covertly pro catholic, etc etc etc. vs. 47 men with sterling academic backgrounds(I’ve read all of their CV’s) who prayed throughout the process…I’m believing that the Holy Spirit was with the 47 professing Christians, because he clearly wasn’t with Westcott and Hort. Studying all of their edits is critical because their are so many outrageous deletions and Siniaticus(the foundation of their critical Greek text) is clearly a deeply compromised (and possibly fake) manuscript.
This is a critical issue, because in and on aren’t the same and Satan is quite capable of using a so called bible to deceive people into taking a chip because the mark, per the new versions, is simply a tattoo. This will happen and I’m glad to warn those I can by contrasting the two groups of translators.
Hello. My German Bible (Luther) says the equivalent of “on” the hand or forehead. I don’t think this matters. Surely, reading the whole chapter, if you are a follower of Jesus Christ you wouldn’t accept ANYTHING from the beast or its prophet, be it on or in the hand, forehead, foot or back.
Shalom and God bless You.
I agree that anyone filled with the spirit will know not to take a mark in or on but interestingly many people in the states swear that it will be a tatto therefore taking a chip inside the right hand is okay. Nicholas Rockefeller has been quoted as saying that everyone will receive a chip for banking and commerce. The fact that the KJV says IN while the dangerously edited new versions say ON is, in my estimation, very significant. We will see (well hopefully we will be gone). Bless you and thanks for the comment.
PS – I would be interested to see what Greek text was used translate your Bible and I’d like to know who the translators were. That would tell us a great deal.
We are in a serious end times battle against the principalities and powers, rulers of darkness. Where did satan first tempt man? And what did he tempt him with? Yea, hath God said? He was putting doubt in the mind of Eve, and showing her another way. He attacked God’s Word! What is he using to tempt man in these very last days? The Word of God! He is fighting to the death against God and His Word, and those who are bought by the blood of Jesus. He is fighting to keep the rest from entering into salvation. And he is using the false bibles to do his dirty work. God is Sovereign and can save some in spite of the other versions. But we have watched the steep decline of the church since the false bibles were brought in. There is a direct correlation in timing. Look at her now.. Joining the Catholic Church by the hundreds of thousands, because they don’t know the true Word of God, or haven’t bothered to read it!
In this battle of the bibles, I think it boils down to one question that must be asked of the opposer. Do you WANT the Truth? Or are you just trying to defend your favorite version of the Bible? There truly is only One Bible, as the author of that book said, “God only wrote ONE Bible”!
