The Sounding of An Alarm in Isaiah 14:12

Why the King James Bible is Right on Lucifer and All the Others are Wrong

TO THE READER – THE SOUNDING OF AN ALARM

O Lucifer, son of the morning” – The Sounding of an Alarm In Isaiah 14:12

By Floyd Nolen Jones.

In the King James Bible, Isaiah 14: 12, 15 reads:

How are thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

…Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell.

However, the New International Version pens:

How you have fallen from heaven O morning star, son of the dawn
…but you are brought down to the grave.

Indeed, the New American Standard and all the modern versions read almost exactly like the NIV (except the NKJV). Yet historically Isaiah 14 has been cited throughout the Church as the singular biography and identification of Lucifer.  [G.A. Riplinger, New Age Bible Versions, (Munroe Falls, OH: A.V. Publications, 1993), pp 40-55] In verse twelve of the King James, Lucifer is in heaven; in verse fifteen Satan is in hell, and the continuing context establishes that Lucifer and Satan are one and the same being. The new versions have removed the name “Lucifer” thereby eliminating the only reference to his true identity in the entire Bible – yet the change in these versions is not the result of translation from the Hebrew language.

Were the King James Bible Translators Correct in Translating Easter in Acts 12:4?

Easter in Acts 12:4 is the most common attack on the King James Bible by those that advocate the new versions.  For critics of the King James Bible, Easter in Acts 12:4 is the definitive proof that the King James Bible has errors in it.  On the surface this appears to be true.  The critics of the King James Bible do not like that Pascha is translated as Easter in Acts 12:4.  The new versions translate Pascha as Passover in Acts 12:4 instead of Easter.  The King James Bible translators translated Pascha as Passover 28 out of 29 times.  The one time that they translated Pascha as Easter is in Acts 12:4.  Easter only appears one time in the King James Bible.  This is significant that the King James Bible translators chose to translate Pascha as Easter.  We need to further investigate this and see if this is really an error in the King James Bible.  You can read below the King James Bible and compare to the new versions below.

Let’s take a look at this controversial verse in the King James Bible and see what we can learn. 

Acts 12:1 (KJV) ¶ Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
Acts 12:2 (KJV) And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
Acts 12:3 (KJV) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
Acts 12:4 (KJV) And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

(Acts 12:3 NKJV)  And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread.

(Acts 12:4 NKJV)  So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover.

It is interesting to note that the New King James version differs from the King James Bible in Acts 12:4.  Apparently the New King James version did a lot more than just remove the thees and thous.

(Acts 12:3 NIV)  When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

(Acts 12:4 NIV)  After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

(Acts 12:3 NASB)  When he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. Now it was during the days of Unleavened Bread.

(Acts 12:4 NASB)  When he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out before the people.

(Acts 12:3 ESV)  and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread.

(Acts 12:4 ESV)  And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.

Was there a BC Septuagint?

The BC Septuagint is another fantasy of Bible correctors. There are those that make the claim that the Lord Jesus Christ read from a greek translation of the Hebrew Bible in the Temple. They make this claim as if the Bible said this. There is no Biblical proof that the Lord Jesus Christ read from a greek translation of the Hebrew Bible in the temple period.

David Daniel’s new book on the New King James Bible

The New King James version is known as the marijuana version. The New King James version is like marijuana. Marijuana is a gateway drug to harder and more dangerous drugs like heroin. The New King James version is a gateway version to more and more perverted versions of the Bible, like the NIV, NASV, and ESV. The bible publishers and retailers try to get Christians hooked on the latest and greatest new version of the bible. This is how they make money. They want to sell you a new bible every year. A good quality King James Bible being read every day may last from five to ten years. A Christian that only buys a new Bible every five to ten years cuts into the profits of the bible publishers and retailers.

How Messed up was David Koresh on the Bible??? The Waco Tragedy and Why You Need to Know Your Bible

It has been 27 years since April 19, 1993, when the buildings at the Branch Davidian ranch were burned to the ground killing seventy-six people.  Over the years since this happened, I have wondered what did David Koresh teach about the Bible?  What attracted his followers to him and his teachings?  David Thibodeau is a survivor of Waco and has spoken many times about his experiences with David Koresh.  You can find a number of videos on Youtube where David Thibodeau talks about his experiences with David Koresh. 

David Thibodeau explains how he met David Koresh.

I remember one day I was so frustrated with my life.  I looked up to the heavens or at least I looked up to the ceiling of Mann’s Chinese theater.  I said Lord what are you saving me for?  When can I finally meet the people that I am supposed to meet so I can start my life?  So I can do what I want to do instead of being in this rut.  Please make this happen.  I am here for a reason.  I know I am not here aimlessly walking through life in Hollywood, living you know with a bunch of guys in a one bedroom apartment. 

Two days later David Thibodeau met David Koresh in a music store in Los Angles, California.

What Does It Mean To Be KJV Only???

We were involved with street preaching with Peter Schultz in Tulsa. We had a great time street preaching with Pete. Pete is a really great street preacher. At this time Pete and his family were members of a Baptist Brider church outside of Tulsa. Pete asked us to do a weekly Bible study with his family and our family. Pete and his family are beautiful and charming. Pete claimed to be KJB only. Pete and his family went with us to see Dr. Ruckman preach at churches in Arkansas and Texas. There are no King James Bible believing churches in Oklahoma. After two years we noticed some differences in doctrine about what the King James Bible teaches in the Bible study with Pete. It turns out that Pete did not believe in the Trinity of God or eternal security of the believer like the King James Bible teaches. The funny part was that we sat in churches with Pete and his family while Dr. Ruckman taught about the Trinity of God and eternal security of the believer. Another thing that was strange was Pete has one of Dr. Ruckman’s chalk talk drawings hanging in the living room of his house.

Bible Correcting Pastors-John 14

Pastor preaching on January 27, 2018

Pastor: The Greek word for “parakletos” means counselor instead of comforter like the King James translators translated it in John 14:16 and John 14:26.  

John 14:16 (KJV) And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:26 (KJV) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

In effect this pastor has changed the King James Bible into a NIV.  The NIV has counselor instead of comforter.  This pastor does not like what the King James Bible says in English.  Therefore, he goes to the greek to re-translate the King James Bible the way he wants it to read.  He wants John 14:16 and John 14:26 to read like the NIV.

History of Dispensationalism

Dispensational teaching has been around for a long time.  This is a good video that explains the history of dispensational teaching from the Bible.

The below document explains the difference between Covenant Theology and dispensational teaching of the Bible.  This document is from the Presbyterian Church which teaches Calvinism.  If your pastor and Baptist church is teaching the same thing as the Presbyterian church, then your pastor needs to quit calling himself a Baptist and start calling himself a Presbyterian.

 

Did Abraham see the First Coming of Christ or the Second Coming of Christ in John 8:56???

The standard teaching on John 8:56 is Abraham saw the day that Christ was crucified and that he rejoiced and was glad.  The problem is that the phrase “my day” is a reference to the day of Christ.  There are four references in scripture to the “day of Christ or day of Jesus Christ.”  There are other problems as well with this teaching.

John 8:56 (KJV) Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

Matthew 21:42 (KJV) Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Psalm 118:22 (KJV) The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
Psalm 118:23 (KJV) This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
Psalm 118:24 (KJV) This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24 has someone that “will rejoice and be glad” about a certain day just like Abraham in John 8:56 where Abraham rejoiced and was glad.  The context of Psalm 118:24 is the second coming of Christ.  In Psalm 118:22 has both the first coming “the stone which the builders refused” the second coming “is become the head stone of the corner.”  The stone in Psalm 118:24 is Christ.  When the stone is the head of the corner, this is the second coming of Christ.  The day in Psalm 118:24 is the day of Christ.  Abraham is the father of Israel.  He would rejoice and be glad for the second coming of Christ.  The second coming of Christ for Israel means that they went through the seven years of Tribulation.  Israel has been reconciled back to God.  Israel has accepted her Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Israel has been forgiven for rejecting and murdering her messiah the Lord Jesus Christ.  The Lord Jesus Christ has destroyed all the armies of the nations that wanted to destroy Israel.  The Lord Jesus Christ takes care of the beast and the false prophet.  As the father of Israel, the second coming of Christ is indeed a day for Abraham to rejoice.  It is a great day indeed for the nation of Israel.  Israel will rule and reign with the King of the Jews, the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Sabbath is for the Nation of Israel, Not America

The Sabbath is for the Land of Israel not America

Deuteronomy 4:14 (KJV) And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

The nation of Israel was to do the statutes and judgments in the land of Israel not America.

Deuteronomy 5:31 (KJV) But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

The nation of Israel was to do the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgements in the land of Israel not America.  The Sabbath was part of the commandments.  The Sabbath is for the nation of Israel to keep in the land of Israel.  The Sabbath is not for America, at least not until the millennial reign of Christ.

Hyperdispensationalist-Les Feldick

Les Feldick is a hyperdispensationalist from Kinta, Oklahoma.  Les Feldick taught hyperdispensationalism for 19 years on a local TV station in Tulsa, Oklahoma from October 1990 to October 2009.  Hyperdispensationalism takes dispensationalism further than the Bible takes dispensationalism which results in heresy and error in Bible teaching.

Les Feldick is a King James Bible corrector.  The only Bible that teaches dispensationalism is the King James Bible.  The King James Bible is the only Bible that has the command to “rightly dividing the word of truth” in it.  It is strange that hyperdispensationalists like Les Feldick reject the King James Bible as being the perfect word of God, when it is the only one that teaches to “rightly divide.”

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Bible instructs Christians to rightly divide the word of truth in 2 Timothy 2:15.  There are two obvious errors that can be made.  The first error is not to divide the word of truth at all or not enough.  The Covenant Theology crowd make this error by claiming that salvation is all the same in the Bible.  The second error is to divide the word of truth in the wrong places or in too many places.  This is the error of hyperdispensationalists.  An example of this would be to teach that the church started with Paul instead of with Christ as stated in Ephesians 2:16.

1 Corinthians 15:9 (KJV) For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Galatians 1:13 (KJV) For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

Philippians 3:6 (KJV) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Ephesians 2:16 (KJV) And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
