The Superiority of the KJV over “Modern Translations”

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2018 by cavalier973

Check this out.

It is Revelation 5:9-10. It is part of the song of the Elders. Notice that every translation excepting the King James/New King James makes God’s salvation impersonal (“You have purchased for God people from every tribe”, etc.) and in verse 10 uses the pronoun “them” instead of “us”.

Now, for a relevant digression. Turn to the Gospel of Mark, chapter 16. You may notice verses 9-20 are bracketed, with a footnote saying something like, “the oldest and best manuscripts do not contain these verses”. The implication is that these verses were added later by well-meaning scribes who felt the account as it ends in verse 8 was incomplete (“They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.“)

The reason the “oldest” manuscripts don’t contain the verses, as it turns out, isn’t because later scribes inserted them, but because the authors of the “oldest and best” manuscripts removed them, possibly for theological reasons. The two (it seems there are only two “o&b” manuscripts) were written by Gnostic or Gnostic-sympathetic authors, who wouldn’t like all this talk about Jesus literally and physically rising from the dead, so they took that section out. We know, however, that the 9-20 section existed prior to these “o&b” manuscripts, because we have earlier writings that quote from these verses. If you have some extra time, do some research just on Mark 16:9-20. Here is an article that argues for rhe passage’s authenticity.

Back to Revelation 5. My point about all this is the identity of the Elders. We know that the Elders are twenty-four in number, sit on thrones, are dressed in white robes, wear crowns, and are not the same as angels, living creatures, or tribulation saints. With a proper translation of chapter 5, versus 9-10, we also know that they are a redeemed people. This is important for understanding who the Elders actually are: the Elders are representatives and members of Christ’s Church.

This is important for eschatological reasons. Probably a majority of Christians today, if they have any cognizance of end times theology, believe that the Church will suffer through God’s wrathful judgement on the world, as described in the prophecy of Revelation (or, they might have adopted Preterism, and believe that the prophecies of Revelation and other Scriptures have already been fulfilled). However, the Elders represent Church already in Heaven, before the Lamb of God begins opening the seals, which act initiates God’s final judgement that is known as the Tribulation. Their presence is evidence that the doctrine of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Church is correct.

The vengeance of God

Posted in Uncategorized on December 9, 2018 by cavalier973

Romans 12:19 NASB — Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord.


God’s vengeance will not be thwarted. We all deserve His wrath. Not all of us will experience it, though, because,of His gracious gift of His own Son, Jesus the Messiah.

In any case, people are evil, and commit evil acts against each other and against God’s creation. All evil is an affront to God, and He is executing a plan to completely eliminate evil. Seek salvation through Jesus to avoid God’s righteous wrath.

If you are a Christian, then be aware that the world hates you, but it will be punished for doing so. Don’t try to take vengeance yourself. God’s vengeance will be complete, and timely. If you are falsely accused, or persecuted in other ways, then God Himself will justify you, because you called on the name,of Jesus the Messiah. His vengeance may not happen until we are standing before His throne, but, well, that will be the time when it will be most meaningful. EVERYONE will see and acknowledge your vindication.

The wrong battlefield

Posted in For God with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2018 by cavalier973

The past couple of years have been fascinating, politically speaking. I did not vote for President Trump in the 2016 election, for a variety of reasons. I am a proponent of Free Trade, and Trump’s protectionist stances were off-putting. I viewed Trump as a “Trojan Horse” candidate; a New York City liberal who was lying in order to get Hillary elected. I actually believed that he did not want to win the election. I wasn’t quite as bothered as other people pretend to be about his flawed marriage life, and multiple commissions of adultery, because, well, I didn’t vote for him, but they were counts against his character, so throw it on the pile of reasons to not vote for him.

Still, President Trump has shown himself to be a much better President than I anticipated. He got a really good tax cut plan implemented, he has massively cut regulations (disassembling the administrative state), which is helpful to the economy, and he got two good judges (well, better than H. Clinton judges, anyway) onto the Supreme Court, and is reshaping the Federal judiciary at the lower court level. A successful Presidency, taken as a whole. I will wait for further evidence to see if his peace deal with North Korea will hold up, but I expect it will, for a while.

The 2018 Midterm Elections didn’t go nearly as well as I was hoping (wishing, really). Democrats are managing to turn Republican Party election night wins into Democrat wins, through extremely obvious voter fraud.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned, and the President appointed the AG Chief of Staff Matt Whitaker to be acting Attorney General, and there is a lot of hope expressed in conservative circles that Whitaker will bring to fruition the promises of “draining the Swamp”. However, there are groups of “conservatives” who oppose Whitaker, and who are arguing that his appointment is unConstitutional. So this tiny, possible win may likely be turned into a loss for the President, as well.

There are more examples of how the United States is in flux right now, and not just politically. Educational institutions and entertainment media also push certain ideas onto the populace. I mention them because there is an idea that conservatives will be able to push them back and “save America” or “Make America Great Again.”

Well, any success will be temporary, unfortunately, because “America” doesn’t actually belong to the people who inhabit its borders. Matthew Chapter Four gives the narrative of Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness, by the Devil. The Devil (“Satan”, Jesus calls him) makes a rather remarkable claim: that all the kingdoms of the world belong to him. He offers them to Jesus, with the provision that Jesus worship Satan. Jesus rebukes him, using Scripture (the only way to fight Satan is with God’s Word), but does not refute Satan’s claim on “all the kingdoms of the world”. I infer that “all kingdoms” includes future kingdoms as well as the ones present at the time of this narrative.

That means that, to borrow a phrase from the late Chuck Missler, The United States of America, even at its best, belongs to Satan. We can fight the leftism and cultural rot and political evil in our country, but in the end, will “lose”, because the country is already in the hands of the Devil.

We have a mission, however, from our Lord Jesus: make disciples of all nations. He didn’t say, “make nations of disciples”. We who believe belong to God’s kingdom, and are on the earth as His ambassadors. We are also spiritual warriors. Ephesians 6:12 points out that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against” spiritual authorities. Fallen angels or demons or some other evil spiritual entities. It is not appropriate for us to become angry with humans who spout anti-Christ nonsense, because they are not our real enemies. The evil spirits that control them are.

We won’t permanently “save America”, because it is a kingdom of this world. But we can join God in His work to save Americans. Pray, pray, pray. Jesus gave us a model that is quite useful for speaking with God.

“Our Father, which art in heaven” — an acknowledgement that God is real, that He is our loving protector and provider. He is outside our realm, and so can see everything that is going on.

“Hallowed be Thy name” — Praise for God is essential. It puts us in the proper mind frame for our petitions that follow.

“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven” — this is a prayer for the promised “Millenium Kingdom” that is spoken of in the Book of Revelation. As Chuck Missler notes, Gabriel promised Mary that her Son would sit on the Throne of David. Jesus will be the King of Israel as well as King of the world. God did not abrogate His promises to Israel, or transfer them to the Church. The promises to Israel revolve around their land. The promises to us who are Christ’s Church revolve around being with Christ.

“Give us this day our daily bread” — God is our provider, whether we are on the verge of destitution, or are the multi-millionaire CEO of a thriving corporation. There is a movie with Jimmy Stewart (I think it’s “Shenandoah”) where Stewart’s character very cheekily prays something along the lines of, “We did all the work, but I guess we’ll thank you for our food, anyway.” That kind of attitude is dangerous and nonsensical.

“And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors” — God is a God of Forgiveness. It isn’t that He overlooks our sins–He couldn’t be a Holy God if he did so–but He provided a substitution for us, which allows Him to forgive. We should likewise forgive others when they wrong us. Since Jesus put this in His “model prayer”, then we should also tell God when we’ve forgiven someone else.

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” — A prayer for protection, but not just physical protection. Our minds and hearts are bombarded with all sorts of evil ideas, with temptations to evil attitudes.

“For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” — a statement of fact concerning God’s position. Also, finishing up the prayer with more praise to God. Practice praise daily; you are developing a skill that will serve you well in Heaven.

“Amen” — “So let it be.”


Our battlefield is not the United States, and our goal is not national salvation. Salvation is an individual concern. Start with your own household. Believe in Jesus; walk by His Spirit; love with God’s power. Share the Gospel that Jesus died for our sins–that He took our punishment in our behalf. Maybe God will intervene, and allow us a few more years of plenty and peace, but remember that Satan is jealous of his kingdoms, and works relentlessly to claim back any ground he lost to the Gospel of Christ, which is why we see the anti-Christian community seem to gain ground. Politics won’t defeat Satan; they are all in his purview. His flesh-and-blood agents are working to overturn election results, and to infiltrate all civic institutions. Reclaiming the culture won’t work; as Satan is in control of all distribution networks, you won’t be able to get that awesome, conservative-Christian book published or movie released.

Prayer works, though; living the Gospel works. Just remember, we are praying for God’s kingdom to come, not for our kingdom (which is really Satan’s kingdom) to remain. He told us to abide until He returns, so pray that God gives you grace to be a good citizen in whatever nation you live. Pray that He will allow you to live peaceably with your neighbors. Pray for provision, so that you can share with others. Pray for unity in the Church of Jesus the Messiah; we may be bitterly opposed, politically, and you may think I have it completely backwards, and that the political right, with its bigotry and racism and sexism, is what is detroying America, that Trump is a horrible and horrifying President. However, if you are a Christian, then you are my brother or sister, and I pray that we are united in Christ’s love.


Party at my place, the third night of Heaven.


Believe the Bible, or don’t

Posted in For God with tags , , , , , , on November 3, 2018 by cavalier973

Believe that the Bible is God’s truth-message to us, or cast it aside as worthless. Don’t try to reconcile the truth of Scripture with the pitiful philosophical flatulence of atheists.

For those who desperately need to believe that Darwinism is true; who desperately want to call God a deceiver, remember that God holds humans responsible for death in the universe, an unjust stance if millions of years of death preceded man’s arrival on the scene, but perfectly just if the narrative in Genesis chapters one through three are solid history and not allegory.

I can only imagine the awkwardness for those who spent their lives basically calling God a liar suddenly finding themselves standing in front of His throne.
