Are You Passionate About The Purity Of God's Word?

By David J. Stewart | August 2015

Deuteronomy 8:3, “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”

       There is an important Biblical lesson to be learned from our text verse in Deuteronomy 8:3. God led the Hebrews into a troublesome situation. God led them into hunger. God led them into scorpions and snakes. God led them into draught and a scorching heat. The Holy Bible says that God humbled the Hebrews, by feeding them manna, a coriander flavored dew that settled each morning upon the ground. God met their needs, but did not give them what they wanted. This was a far cry from the garlic, onions, meat and delicacies which the Hebrews enjoyed in Egypt, while laboring as slaves for Pharaoh for 400 years.

The Hebrews were skeptical at first, but then they were overjoyed when God sent Moses to deliver them from bondage, and they saw the ten plagues afflicted upon Egypt. But little did they know that God would lead them from the frying pan into the fire, from bondage into suffering in a desert Wilderness. The Lord did this to train His people, to teach them that there's more to life than eating, drinking and having a good time. God wanted the Hebrews to learn that man needs the spiritual food of God's Word to live by, as much as man needs physical food to live by.

Today, God is still the same God that He was 3,500 years ago. Malachi 3:6 says that the Lord never changes. Hebrews 13:8 says that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. The world changes, and men change, and cultures change, and times change, and seasons change, and philosophies change, and standards change; but God and His Word never change. Amen! The same God Who trained the Hebrews by leading them into hardships, poverty, difficulties and frustrations, does the same thing to Christians today. Just as heat hardens iron into alloy steel, so also does persecution and suffering forge mature Christians. We need hard times and suffering to drive us to our knees and into the Holy Scriptures for comfort, answers and spiritual help. For every man throughout history who was destroyed by adversity, there were a hundred destroyed by prosperity. The average believer prays, reads their Bible, and goes to church; but then when a bunch of bad things happen in their life, they lose faith in God and quit. That's because they fail to understand how life works, how God works, and how the Scriptures can help us.

With these vital truths in mind, it ought to become abundantly clear just how important it is to have God's pure words. I mean, If we are intentionally led into trials, sufferings and tribulations by the Lord to teach us that we need to live by God's Words, then WE NEED GOD'S WORDS!!! Please notice our text Scripture again, closely...

Deuteronomy 8:3, “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”

Notice in the preceding verse that we need EVERY WORD to live! That means I need an every word Bible!!!! The New International Version (NIV) removes or changes over 64,000 words as compared to the precious and trustworthy King James Bible. If that's not alarming enough oh Christian, please consider that the 2011 NIV differs in content by 38.8% as compared to the 1984 NIV. Good night in the morning folks! The NIV (the Antichrist's Bible) is the Bible version that keeps changing. I've heard apostate pastors downplay the danger of the corrupt Bibles they use by attempting to distance their particular version from the NIV. Friend, there's not a dime's difference between all the Westcott and Hort translations!!!

New World Order Bible Versions

Contrary to popular belief, there won't be a one-world religion; but rather, the purity of the different religious denominations (churches) will be diminished, weakened and compromised in ecumenical apostasy to the point that they will all support the coming Antichrist without even realizing it. This was all foretold by occultist Alice Bailey. Case in point, churches who support present-day apostate Israel are in fact supporting the Illuminati and the Devil's plot to launch World War III, via the divide and conquer of the Middle East through Israel. Zionism is a false doctrine. True Israel fell to ruin in 586 BC, and has not been restored yet. Hosea 3:4-5 tells us that the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the true Messiah, will regather Israel when a remnant of Jews fear God and repent, embracing Jesus Christ. This will happen at the close of the 7-year Tribulation period. Present-day Israel was founded in May of 1948 by the Illuminati (the Luciferian worshipping elite whom Satan uses to control his kingdom of darkness).

The “Easy-To-Eead Version” (ERV) is IMPOSSIBLE To Understand!!!

A popular Bible version being used in Independent Baptist churches today is the “Easy-To-Read Version” (ERV). It's not just hard to grasp, it is IMPOSSIBLE to understand, because it is doctrinally corrupted and consequentially made utterly void. This is a satanic version, not God's Word. The ERV is a counterfeit, a fraud, another New World Order (NWO) translation, that is, it is one of hundreds of fake Bible versions that are being used by Satan to bring about a world religious understanding and cooperation, to dupe the churches into following Christ instead of being born-again. When the ANTI-Christ comes, they will follow him.

We BELIEVE, Not FOLLOW, Jesus Christ To Be Saved

Check out what the ERV does to butcher God's Word, and promote the New World Order in the following passage of Scripture...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB)— 2nd Corinthians 11:3, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”

EASY TO READ VERSION (ERV)—2nd Corinthians 11:3, “But I am afraid that your minds will be led away from your true and pure following of Christ. This could happen just as Eve was tricked by that snake with his clever lies.”

There are at least three major theological errors in the preceding verse from the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV):

  1. The King James Bible warns about the mind becoming corrupted, not about being led away.

  2. The King James Bible warns about our mind being corrupted from “the simplicity that is in Christ,” not being misled from a true and pure following of Christ. You don't have to follow Jesus to receive the free gift of God. That would require human effort. To be saved, you simply believe the Gospel, that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, was buried and then bodily resurrected after the third day. That's very simple and anybody can do it, even a young child old enough to understand that they are a sinner in God's holy eyes and need a Savior to redeem them.

  3. We are saved by believing the Gospel (which is the simplicity that is in Christ); and not by following Christ true and pure. Do you see clearly how the ERV has woefully changed the plan of salvation? The ERV says the Apostle Paul is afraid that the church at Corinth will be led astray from following Christ, but that's not the Gospel. The ERV has done a grave injustice to the Word of God! The simplicity that is in Christ is the Gospel, not following Christ true and pure (which is human effort).

The “simplicity” that is in Christ is the simple Gospel, which if you believe you are saved. Notice that the ERV perverts the meaning of the Scriptures, changing “the simplicity that is in Christ” to “your true and pure following of Christ.” Whoa! The latter is human effort, that is, a works-based false plan of salvation. Are we saved by following Christ? No, not at all. John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” Did you read that? The King James Bible says the work of God concerning salvation is to BELIEVE ON CHRIST! But the Easy-To-Read Version says in 2nd Corinthians 11:3 that we must have a true and pure FOLLOWING OF CHRIST.

No one ever got saved by deciding to follow Jesus! That's surrender and service, not sonship and salvation. You get saved by receiving Jesus as your personal Savior, through faith in His death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection the third day. Christ made the full payment for all of our sins on the cross. The Lord shed His blood and sprinkled it upon the Mercy Seat in Heaven to cleanse away our sins forever (1st John 1:7; Hebrews 9:12, 24; 12:24). This is The Good News, which the King James Bible rightly calls, “The Gospel.” If you acknowledge your sinnership (i.e., your guilty condition as a sinner in God's holy eyes for breaking His commandments) and believe the Gospel, then you are saved. It's that simple. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved. It doesn't get any simpler than that my friend. It is simple to be saved, just BELIEVE THE GOSPEL!!!

You must understand the differences between: Sonship verses Discipleship. Here is an excellent quote from Pastor Martin R. DeHaan, M.D., explaining the differences between salvation and discipleship...

"There is a vast difference between coming to Jesus for salvation and coming after Jesus for service. Coming to Christ makes one a believer, while coming after Christ makes one a disciple. All believers are not disciples. To become a believer one accepts the invitation of the Gospel, to be a disciple one obeys the challenge to a life of dedicated service and separation. Salvation comes through the sacrifice of Christ; discipleship comes only by sacrifice of self and surrender to His call for devoted service. Salvation is free, but discipleship involves paying the price of a separated walk. Salvation can't be lost because it depends upon God's faithfulness, but discipleship can be lost because it depends upon our faithfulness." —Pastor M.R. DeHaan; HEBREWS, Zondervan Publishing House, 1959 (p. 117).

There's a gigantic difference between BELIEVING verses FOLLOWING Jesus Christ. We BELIEVE to be saved, but we FOLLOW for discipleship. These are two separate decisions! Certainly God the Father desires and commands for every born-again believer to follow the Son of God in obedience, so that Christ may live through us (Galatians 2:20). But this is not the gift of God. To receive the free gift of eternal life, the Holy Bible simply tells us to BELIEVE the Gospel (Mark 1:15; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4). Again we read in John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” There again we learn that BELIEVING is the requirement to be saved, and not true and pure FOLLOWING. It is easy to be saved, as easy as walking through a door (John 10:9). It is as easy to be saved, as drinking a cup of water (John 4:13-14).

Below is another big doctrinal blunder in the “Easy-To-Read Version” (ERV). Whereas the trustworthy King James Bible teaches that the way to life is “narrow,” the corrupted ERV says that the road to life is “HARD TO FOLLOW.” Here again in the contaminated ERV (the Devil's Bible version) we find the same “FOLLOW” garbage again...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB)—Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

EASY TO READ VERSION (ERV)—Matthew 7:13-14, “You can enter true life only through the narrow gate. The gate to hell is very wide, and there is plenty of room on the road that leads there. Many people go that way. But the gate that opens the way to true life is narrow. And the road that leads there is hard to follow. Only a few people find it.”

“Narrow” simply means that God's plan of salvation, as simple as it is, has been obscured by false religions, false doctrines, false Christs, the lies of Evolution, worldly philosophy (like Humanism), and hordes of liberal, modernist and kook authors and television personalities, et cetera. 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” We see this truth perfectly illustrated today by the hundreds of different Bible versions being marketed. On the main webpage of the American Bible Society (ABS), you can search through 582 different Bible versions!!! Although there are literally hundreds of English Bible versions to choose from, only one is the trustworthy, legitimate, inerrant, infallible, perfect, inspired, preserved, Words of God... THE KING JAMES BIBLE!!!!!!!

Before You Decide To Follow Jesus, You'd Better Get Born-Again!!!

Jesus warned Nicodemus (a Jewish leader) in John 3:1-7 that except a man (and that's includes everybody, male and female, bond or free, both Jew and Gentile alike) gets born-again, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. YE MUST BE BORN-AGAIN! The Devil would love to convince you that all you have to do is follow Jesus to go to Heaven. This is why Jesus warned in Luke 13:23-34 that many people shall seek to enter into Heaven in eternity, but SHALL NOT BE ABLE. That's because they weren't born-again! Religious devotion is false security. Church membership, water baptism, infant baptism, holy communion, and the sacraments are ALL FALSE SECURITY. None of those activities can get a person one millimeter closer to the Kingdom of God. You must come as a guilty sinner, seeing yourself as undone in the eyes of your holy Creator. You must believe the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved (Romans 10:13).

I told you at the beginning of this important article that the ERV is a counterfeit, a fraud, another New World Order (NWO) translation, that is, it is one of hundreds of fake Bible versions that are being used by Satan to bring about a world religious understanding and cooperation, to dupe the churches into following Christ instead of being born-again. And I've shown you two satanic corruptions from the ERV, both of which change “the simplicity that is in Christ” and “narrow is the way” to errantly mean FOLLOW CHRIST instead!!! If you understand that the Devil is preparing the masses of the world to receive the soon-coming Antichrist, then it becomes abundantly clear why we see so much emphasis in all these new counterfeit Bible versions on FOLLOWING CHRIST, instead of being born-again by the Holy Spirit of God. Literally, the churches that are not raptured and are left behind, will FOLLOW CHRIST (i.e., THE ANTICHRIST)!!!!!!

It is not a coincidence that the new fakes Bible versions all assault key Scripture passages concerning Christ's Godhead, virgin birth, sinless life, deity, preeminence and holy character. By diminishing these critically important doctrines of Christ in the Holy Bible, it makes it all that much easier for Satan to replace the Lord Jesus with the Antichrist! If the Lord tarries His return, you'll see that the new Bible versions (and the apostate churches that use them) will increasingly reduce the deity, Godhead, virgin birth, sinless holy character, bodily resurrection and preeminence of Christ to no more than a mere miracle working prophet, instead of the only biological (begotten) Son of God almighty, thus making Jesus God almighty too (John 1:1-3, 14; 14:1-3; 10:33).

This is what the heresy of Lordship Salvation is all about, that is, substituting following Christ for being born-again by the Holy Spirit of God. Instead of resting in the imputed righteousness of God through faith in Christ, the Lordship Salvation crowd are trusting in their personal efforts to forsake sinful bad habits and live a surrendered life to Christ; and they do it under the pretense of being saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Clearly, none of these things can truly be “alone” if forsaking sinful living, breaking ties with the sinful world, surrendering one's will to serve God, and confessing Christ are necessary to be saved.

Satan has succeeded in confusing the churches, simply by using the love of money to compel wicked people to publish hundreds of English Bible versions. So now we've got umpteen Bible versions, with umpteen variations on the plan of salvation, umpteen doctrinal heresies infecting the churches, and umpteen excuses by apostates to ensure that the insanity will continue. Beware of the new counterfeit Bible versions which are promoting the false idea of FOLLOWING CHRIST to be saved, when the Bible does not teach that at all. The simplicity that is in Christ is that you are a sinner, deserving of the penalty (wages) of Hell-fire forever. But God loves you and made a way of escape. God the Father sent His only begotten Son to bleed and die on the cross for your sins. It will cost you NOTHING to be saved! Jesus Christ paid it all! You simply need to know that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ, Who died for your sins and mine on the cross of Calvary. He was buried and bodily resurrected three days later. BELIEVE it dear sinner and the work is done!

I Am Passionate About The Words Of God! Are You? If Not, Get Right With God!

After reading this article, it should be abundantly clear just how important it is to have an accurate Bible. The King James Bible is not a “version,” it is the Holy Bible! I am passionate about God's Word. I must have it! I must have every word to live by! I absolutely won't tolerate a paraphrased, watered-down, corrupted, diluted, counterfeit, butter-knife, PERversion, in place of the genuine real McCoy... THE PRECIOUS KING JAMES BIBLE!!! Do you know that 1st Peter 2:7 says Jesus is “precious” to believers? 1st Peter 2:7, “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.” Today, the filet-mignon of the King James Bible is being replaced by the canned Devils-ham and bologna of the modern versions. You can keep your Aspartame Bible versions, no thank you! You can keep your rat-poison ERV, NIV and other imposters!

I get worked-up when I tell others about what Satan is doing to corrupt the Word of God. I get excited boy! I get fired up like Billy Sunday, and start swinging my arms in excitement. I get a bit emotional. I get upset. Somebody needs to make a fuss! Somebody needs to call names and expose the heretics serving bologna in our churches! Somebody needs to cry aloud against the Devil dumping poison into our spiritual food supply. My friend, if you are saved, do you realize that everything we spiritually believe as Christians is centered upon the Words of God? EVERYTHING!!! This means that there is NOTHING in our lives any more important than the purity and integrity of God's Holy Words. When I see these new Bibles removing the word “worshipped,” when lepers and families worshipped Jesus on their knees, and these wicked Bible-butcherers change it to a mere “knelt,” I get really angry about that. You can kneel before a dignitary without worshipping Him. The Devil just couldn't stand having the Bible repeatedly tell the truth that people worshipped Jesus, so they removed it

I hope and pray that more pastors will fall on their knees and get right with God. Oh preacher, isn't it time that you fell in love with the Words of God again? How can you love, preach, use, cherish, memorize and stand upon a dozen Bibles? You cannot! All these churches using bi-parallel Bibles (two versions side-by-side) are living in spiritual adultery. Jesus is the Living Word. The Bible is the Written Word. They are both the manifestation of God the Father to the world (1st Timothy 3:16). If you cannot perceive the written word correctly, then you won't perceive the living word correctly either (Hebrews 1:2; John 5:39; 6:63). Anyone with half of a working brain, who loves the Lord Jesus, can quickly see from searching through the modern plethora of hellish Bible versions, that they all attack the deity of Jesus Christ, remove the Godhead, diminish Christ's preeminence and even promote the Antichrist.

You cannot have a proper relationship with some bastard child of the Devil in these new counterfeit Bible versions. We are told in John 6:40 that the Father's will is to SEE the Son and BELIEVE on Him. Well, you're not going to SEE the Son in a counterfeit Bible version. If you have never read a King James Bible, or have never heard someone preach from a King James Version... YOU'RE IN A WORLD OF HURT!!! The NIV is the benchmark of Hell, the epitome of darkness, and the finest achievement of the Devil to destroy the churches. The question is, how dumb are you? We've got a bunch of dummies misleading our churches today all across the world. I beg you, whoever you may be, do your own research into this matter. Most importantly, pray and ask God to open your eyes to the issue. God only wrote one book, THE BOOK! I believe that the King James Bible is God's inerrant, infallible, perfect, preserved and inspired, Words for this generation. To Hell with all these new counterfeit Bibles, which is where they came from and are all going!

The King James Bible is my friend, and I'm going to defend my friend. I am loyal to God's Word and the Lord Jesus Christ. When someone tampers with the Word of God, they are God's enemy. When pastors use, promote and support the new corrupted Bible versions, they are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. When Christian leaders have been repeatedly warned that they are using satanic Bible versions, but they don't care, they are the enemies of God. Most religious people have historically been God's sworn enemies. It is no different today. I hear beautiful hymns, the same hymns sang in Baptist churches, on Seventh-day Adventist (SDA's) radio. SDA's teach some remarkable things, like their Amazing Facts website and magazine.

So what differentiates Baptists from SDA's? In a word... TRUTH! So what happens when the truth is stifled and Baptist churches decide instead to teach the false plan of Lordship Salvation, and use satanic Bible versions in their congregation and pulpit? They are now no better than the SDA's. Without THE TRUTH, a church merely deteriorates into a glorified religious social club, entertainment center, and a place to take care of announcements and business. It is truly shameful what has happened to most of America's churches. Pastors don't preach anymore, and preachers don't stand anymore. It all boils down to each person's attitude toward the Word of God. If you love it, like I do, then you will speak up when you see the Devil corrupting it. The King James Bible is precious to me because Jesus is precious. When greedy Bible translators and publishers attack Jesus' deity and the Godhead, I know that the Devil is in the works. When I see Bible butchers changing how to be saved, I know Satan's hands have been busy.

If you're not upset, you're not paying attention, or just don't care. I CARE! I hope you do too. God bless you.
