So Just Where is the Original Text of the Bible Kept? 3

By | October 4, 2010

So far we have seen just how carefully God the Father has looked after every aspect of His Word in the Old Testament. The thrust of this is that if God the Father watched over & kept His Word under what is called

[KJV] 2CO 3:7 – 11

[2CO 3:7] But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: [2CO 3:8] How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? [2CO 3:9] For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. [2CO 3:10] For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. [2CO 3:11] For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

God the Father would watch over His Word in far greater care than the Old Testament dispensation. The crucial is “How God the Father keep His Word safe after the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Just how did God the Father hide and project his pure word? This the $64,000 as they used to say!

BE SURPRISED AND READ ON

Which Godly nation will be given the care of keeping the word of God. Was any one nation to keep the word of God? It is difficult to answer because the word of God says nothing about entrusting the New Testament to any one nation or even language. The cross tells the world why Jesus Christ was crucified in three languages of the day: GREEK, LATIN & HEBREW. Let’s be clear that this was not the GREEK of the fallen Greek Empire it was a newish language that was there for a season & then disappeared from the languages of the world. IT is a fact of history after an an occupation by force of one Empire of another that the victors re-write history and force a language change. The last time the UK was conquered was in 1055 and the local language was certainly sent into upheaval. Any idea that the word of God was entrusted to the safe keeping of the Greek language (any Greek language) just is not supported in the word of God.

It is no good saying that the circumstantial evidence supports this or that. If the situation was so precise in the Old Testament which is the lesser glory how come we are left with circumstantial evidence in the New Testament which holds the word of God [KJV] 2 Corinthians 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

So then are the originals hidden in a cave? If they were what language would they be in? If we found some writings in a cave, how would we know that these were the unchanged originals?

Does it matter that God the Father and The Lord Jesus Christ would keep His Word so that we can be certain that what we read in a bible is the Holy Bible the living the word of God? It certainly matters to me.

OK what does the New Testament say about this?

I’ll list the references & then come back to each: (I have some 466 verses on this subject of God the Father keeping His Word)

[KJV] ACT 2:5 – 8

[ACT 2:5] And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

I have scanned or rather searched Gail Riplinger’s book “In Awe of Thy Word” for some of these references. Some of you may have an interest in a type of tools that I use to make life easier and more interesting. You may purchase Gail Riplinger’s book on three CDs from her bookshop, I’ll put the link at the bottom of this blog. I use a very handy PDF reader that will allow searching of PDF files within a set of folders containing PDF files. So all I did was search of Gail’s book which is in PDF format files to find the word “nation”. I use the free version and I will include the link at the bottom of the blog. This is by far the fastest and most usable PDF reader that I have ever come across.

The next tool that I use is DragonDictate, a dictation program that is getting better and better and I can’t wait to get version 11.

Since I’m working on a netbook and not a notebook it is traditionally low powered with limited RAM. I overcome this by using a couple of freeware programs from the same publisher that will shut down all unnecessary processes that are running in the background that you don’t need. In this manner on again over 200 MB of memory RAM for use. This is something that should have been thought of years ago, I will admit that these applications were introduced for online gamers so that they could pick up a bit of speed on their refresh rates but seeing that I don’t online game I found a much better use for them. If you’d like to know the names of these programs drop me an e-mail or put a comment in the bottom of this blog.

To get back to our study and our search to find out what God did to preserve the text of the New Testament. To make sure that we could always get a pure translation or copy of what was actually said by God in the original New Testament.

There is actually no scripture anywhere that suggests that he picked a special or central language in which to store these documents in. And he most certainly did not pick the Greek of the old Greek empire. We were taught the classic Greek which is the pagan Greek of the pagan Greek writers. It’s astounding that the pagan Greek writers have survived unto today; Plato, Homer and the like. These authors were full of fanciful ideas and very corrupt notions. I know because I was forced to study them in my tender formative years (if there was such a thing). I studied them under our classics master at a Proprietary School in England. This school has since been torn down.

This classics master used to delight in Reading to us young boys the stories which actually are full of homosexual allusions. Just the thing, I don’t think, That you want to introduce into an all male boys boarding school (years 8 to 12), where boys are just about to enter their puberty. We then went on to a Public School, a boarding school, that was also a boys only, to serve out the rest of our educational terms from 13 years to 18 years and we were then supposed to proceed to university in my case University College ,Oxford in England. At no time was I ever in a class of more than 12 or 13, we all made it to where ever we were studying to go that is what our parents were paying for.

I didn’t make it to Oxford as I came to Australia to be by the side of my dying mother praise God I got saved almost as soon as I got here and realised that the Lord Jesus was my teacher in the King James Bible was my guide and yes I did settle down faithfully into a local congregation and came under the authority of the local oversight.

Yes I have a deep distrust for what you could call the pagan Greek language and the type of poetry and prose that has been preserved for us all to read. Be very clear that this pagan rooted language was not a language that was in use in Palestine at the time of our lord Jesus Christ. Don’t try and find expanded meanings to New Testament words by going and looking in the pagan Greek for them. You will end up being led astray and you will miss the true meaning of the words.

It is true that recently I was accused of being a “latent — homosexual”, whatever that is. Yes I did study that pagan Greek language and I thought that it was godless and filthy at the time, I do not for one second think that any meanings of New Testament words could have come out of that language. I have avoided homosexual tendencies and thank God for a conscience that told me when I was sinning and that I needed the saviour. The Lord added me to the church in 1963 praise his wonderful name.

Let’s look at the concept of “latent tendencies.” The King James Bible makes it abundantly clear that since the fall of Adam we are sinners. We are all born with the capability of sinning in fact we are capable of sinning regardless of the environment that we are raised in. This is why the Lord Jesus Christ had to die for us all because we are all sinners. We are not born with a tendency for one sin more than another.

We are sinners. The King James Bible uses the generalized term “fornication” to describe sexual uncleanness and sin. Fornication includes the following sexual sins; adultery, sexual intercourse before marriage, paedophiles, homosexual behaviour, incest, rape and in fact any sexual activity that is not between a husband and his wife in a holy manner.

We have an absolute choice about the style of sexual behaviour that we get involved in, the Bible does not say that were born to be this type or that type. If you want to go over to Thailand and get involved with temple prostitutes or child prostitutes, you’re free to go there just make sure that you don’t get caught. The laws of the land say one thing but the word of God says something else entirely different.

Remind me to tell you what the five men who lived around 150 years ago had in common to pollute modern thinking about the need for the things of God.

Ok How did the LORD GOD make certain we would have access to a pure bible that was his Living Word ? The answer is so simple, it’s a daring simplicity. He gave the originals to every nation in their native language. There would be no need for human interpreters. He handed the words of the gospel to every nation and every language. This was given as an oral transmission. This was not given in a written format. Those that heard the New Testament gospel in their own language or tongues would take it home with them. They would tell family and friends and as they told what they had heard faith would spring up in the hearts of the hearers just as it Had sprung up in their hearts. The hearers would believe and repent just like they had done. Then they would write this down after they had experienced the power of this gospel. Later as they compared the accounts back translating this story between the national languages GUESS WHAT the cross-translated accounts would agree. God the Father did not trust any one nation or language to keep his precious Living Word safe. This is nothing like the Old Testament method because all who put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ are the children of faithful Abraham not just a Middle Eastern nation that speaks the Hebrew language

All of the New Testament was not first recorded in the Greek language and make no doubt about those parts were recorded initially in Greek had no resemblance in meaning, idiom or context to the Greek of a long dead godless empire who had faded of the page of the then current world influence. When I was very young the cultured world was trying to resurrect all things Egyptian – it was a fashion trend we certainly did not resurrect Egyptian medicine or writing script. The Roman Empire squashed absorbed the Greek Empire along with its language idioms and syntax. We knew better of course when so called divines were looking to sink the authority of our lovely & powerful King James Authorised Version bible .

I think we should leave this here for awhile. Next time I link this blockbusting revelation to the scriptures which don’t lie.

If you like to know about the wonders of the King James Bible you fill more information in Gail Riplinger’s masterpieces:


If you have read this book then you owe it yourself.
