For the past several months I have been reporting on my research showing the similarities between Israel and America when they turn their backs against God.Israel and America are the only two nations that were dedicated to God, His Word, His ideals, morals and principals.America is NOT God’s chosen people, nor is America in a covenant with God . Over these past few months I have tried to present the truth. Truth in history, truth in scripture and based on trends and events I have tried to present truthfully what I think the future holds.To be honest, it has not been a cheery ride and I know many are distraught with all that I have presented.My plan now is to present solutions.Now I am going to come right out and say that some of these solutions you will not like, nor will you be willing to submit to them. The reason is that we have forgotten what it truly means to be a Christian, a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have fallen in love with having one foot in the world, and one foot in a relationship with Jesus.
Romans 12:1-2 (KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
When you show people this, they do not like it; and I have to admit that even I have times where I “buck” submission to the Lord, His Word, morals, ideals and principals.
Even we as Christians no longer fear God nor do we live a holy life acceptable unto God. We may claim it, but when it gets down to rubber meeting the road, we don’t.
See this is our downfall. Like it or not we still live a pretty rebellious life, and yes I am putting my own self into that same group as well. But the good news is that we all can do better, much better.
What is solution # 1?
Getting back to God’s Holy Word that has been preserved for the English speaking world; that being the only Authorized Version of the Bible, The King James Bible.
I am not going to get into a bunch of debates over versions and such. But what I am going to point to is the founding fathers and those Americans who fought and died in the wars that allowed us to declare our independence from tyranny and oppression.
There was only one version around, that just about every home, school, business and yes even our own government offices had, that was The King James Bible.
Do you realize that almost the entire nation had one version of God’s Word? They were united through that one source.
Here, ponder the following…
A study was conducted at the university of Houston by Donald Lutz and Charles Hyneman. Their study was later published as the book The Origins of American Constitutionalism. On pages 136-149 of Origins, Lutz summarizes the results of a 1984 paper in which he and colleague Charles Hyneman analyze some 15,000 items of American political commentary published between 1760 and 1805. The purpose of the paper was to determine the sources that most influenced the development of American political thought during our nation’s founding period.
Can you guess what was the most influential source used by our founding fathers? What Lutz and Hyneman showed was that the King James Bible was the most frequently quoted source between 1760 and 1805.
Why the King James? Because they did not have the 300 plus different versions to pollute, pervert, and divide their thoughts, minds, actions and unity like we do today.
What people seem to forget is this… things that are different, are not the same.
Our founding fathers and those who fought for our independence were all in one accord with one Bible, the King James Bible.
That is what we as a nation have gotten away from.
In proverbs we are given a warning.
Proverbs 22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
We as a nation have allowed the generations to wear down our standards. Look at how many organizations, Christian and non have worked to attack the one bible that this nation was built upon.
Again, I am not trying to argue versions here. What I am stating is fact, it is clear cause and effect.
Because we as a nation have allowed watered down, feminized, spineless, non convicting versions of the Bible, we are where we are today.
We are a nation that no longer holds to resolve nor has conviction. We ourselves have been watered down.
We have become weakened and lack the true power of God working in us. It is like we have two legs and one arm tied behind our backs instead of the full strength and power of God working through us.
Let me show you an example.
Psalms 144:1 A Psalm] of David Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: – Authorized King James Version
This is what I call a “Warrior Verse.” In this verse you can feel the resolve and the strength of the Lord.
BLESSED BE THE LORD.. . MY STRENGTH. We derive our strength from God. This in and of itself motivates because He is our strength. Can you imagine those who fought for our independence drawing strength from this one line alone?
WHICH TEACHETH MY HANDS TO WAR AND MY FINGERS TO FIGHT.
Think about what they thought, the one true and holy God is with me. He is my strength, He will teach my hands to war and my fingers to fight. With God for me being my strength and teaching me, who can stand against me?
Do you see the resolve, the conviction, the motivation?
When I read this verse, I feel like I am holding a banner and I plant it into the ground with determination and resolve. I draw the line, I will not retreat, God is my strength, He will be with me in this battle.
Now read these modern versions …
Psa 144:1 A psalm of David. Praise the LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle. – New Living Translation
Psa 144:1Of David. Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. – New International Version (NIV)
Folks, we need to be critical… things different are not the same.
Blessed and praise, two completely different things
Strength and Rock are two completely different things.
Teaches and trains, close but two different things.
What has been stripped is the conviction and resolve that the King James version had.
I would go to battle and hang my life on Psalms 144:1 that I read in the King James, I am not sure I would find that sort of resolve in the modern versions we call the bible.
That is what our forefathers had. They had the resolve to stand take up arms against tyranny. They had the knowledge and understood what it meant to be a slave to tyrants because they based their events on the Authorized Version of God’s Word.
Where is that resolve, that conviction, that power, that resilience today?
It is not there, because we have stepped away from the ancient landmarks. We allowed God’s Word to be compromised by watering it down to suit our own selfish desires instead of living a holy and acceptable life unto Him.
But to top that off, we have allowed reconstructed history to also take hold. We no longer have absolutes. Not only has the enemy defiled the good name of The Authorized King James Version, he has also attacked our Christian heritage and our forefathers.
It vexes my spirit to hear people regurgitate garbage saying that we are not a nation founded on God’s principals and standards. It also vexes my spirit when they steal the truth about our founding fathers.
In fact, of the 55 founding fathers, we know for a fact what their sworn public confessions were.
- Twenty-eight were Episcopalians
- Eight were Presbyterians
- Seven were Congregationalists
- Two were Lutheran
- Two were Dutch Reformed
- Two were Methodist
- Two were Roman Catholic
- One is unknown
- And only three were deists.
Revisionist history is stealing and moving the ancient landmarks. These wolves in sheep’s clothing have and stolen our heritage. What is sad is that we as Christians are buying this revisionist propaganda hook, line and sinker and we allowed it to happen.
And we wonder why we are where we are today?
We are where we are today because we have allowed ourselves to be dumbed down and become ignorant of the facts, our past and our heritage.
Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Our founding fathers had something we don’t.
They were united under the Authorized Version of The King James Bible. This is a fact.
They fought and many gave their lives, spilt their blood for true freedom.
They understood all of this and more because of one thing, they were educated from the one source of absolute truth for the English speaking world, The King James Bible.
So What is Solution #1?
We need to get back to what our forefathers stood on. We need to recapture the conviction, resolve, steadfastness, strength, and power of God working through the hearts of men.
We regain that by getting back to our foundations.
Like it or not, that foundation is the King James Bible.
You can give me excuses, but I point to history and fact. The founding fathers had something we no longer have.
The hope and the solution is there if we push away the excuses. That is if we are man and woman enough to get on our knees, submit to God, as well as His promised and preserved Word. The very same Word of God our forefathers had, The Authorized King James Bible.
Bloodshed Spilt Upon Our Soil
I honestly believe that very hard times are coming.
Historical trends show that bloodshed has been spilt for this nation about every 100 years. Two out of the three hundred years those times of bloodshed was on our own land. Odds are that the bloodshed we face today will also be upon our own soil.
If you don’t want to believe this and everything else I have presented, that’s up to you. I can’t make you.
What I do believe is that I am going to put every positive odd that I can put into me and my families favor. If it means submitting to the Bible our forefathers used, then so be it, I will submit, trust and obey.
I know that my resolve, conviction, strength, and faith will not waiver what so ever.
Why? Because I have the power of God’s Word living in me.
It isn’t watered down, feminized, made weak, reworded, nothing.
It is God’s preserved Word and I have God’s promise…
Psalms 12:6-7 (KJV) The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
That is the absolute truth. That is truth that allows a man to stand against insurmountable odds like our forefathers did standing against the greatest military in the world when they faced England.
Let me remind you, it was not Europe’s elite that built this country. It was a handful of Godly men who stood on God’s Word. They were a bunch of rag tag commoners, laymen and even some explorers, all armed to the best of their ability both physically and spiritually.
It was their spiritual resolve, determination, conviction , strength that bore this nation. All of which was rooted deep within them from one primary source, The Authorized Version of The King James Bible.
They had it, we don’t, but we need to get back to it if we are to survive the coming storm.
If we don’t our nation will be lost.
No matter what, one cannot claim the spiritual resolve, determination, conviction , and strength from these modern versions. Try as you may, but when the pressure finally hits, people will fold like cheap lawn furniture. The proof is all around you.
God’s preserved Word is what will save us. Watered down counterfeits won’t.
Is this nation worth it?
Is it worth overcoming whatever pride issue you may have and get back to the solid truth of God?
Or have you totally bought into the last 100 years of revisionist history defiling the KJV, our forefathers and our Christian heritage?
Me, I submit and stand with God’s promise of preserving His word. I stand on the King James Bible.
Joshua 24:15 (KJV) And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
