... Quoting: ***HEAVEN***
Good evening Heaven.
I know you use the Amp bible, and as a Christian who studies he originals, I am going to say something to you in hopes that you listen to what I am going to share for you.
Satan loves to divide and conquer.
He did that to Eth Ha Adam and Eve in the garden by dividing them from God with lies.
The Amp bible is very corrupt and I wish you would go back to the King James 1700 series bible because if you do, you can take the Word back to its prime meaning on each word.
I know as a student of the Word that many are being deceived by the "traditions of men's church systems"
Yes, we are the last generation and that is for sure.
We are to love even our enemies and if you do not understand the depth of that and why, then you need to study some more and ask God to fill you with that hidden reason why Christ said that.
Now, the King James bible "confirms itself" even without having the original writings in your hand.
Go read 2 Cor. 13:1.
This is the "formula" on how to confirm the bible.
That is only the basic of how to rightly divide the Word.
Here is a bit of info to help you out. I know the King James bible is a bit confusing to many Christians and Satan loves this.
I would like for you to pay attention to what I am about to share. I want you to be a better student in the Word so you can truly help those who are in the dark.
I am trying to set the example so here goes.
The bible has "Hidden manna" and learning those hidden manna which Christ is that "manna" sent from heaven. He is not only the Manna that we are to "eat" and eat does not mean to consume like food, but to know that Jesus not only died for our sins because we cannot fulfill the Law of God. He is the "Hidden manna" giver. Read Rev. 2:17 for me quickly if you are still on the net.
See the words "hidden manna" there? I hope you see it.
The bible uses symbolics and all the symbolics in the Word verifies that within the bible itself and we do not need to interpret the Word for ourselves.
I know what is commonly taught that the bible is "not for private interpretation." ( Satan has made men of the churches think that we all can interpret the Word and that we all can see something different when we read the Word. That is incorrect. That is why Paul tells us what He says in the book of Tim. which you quoted from. We are NOT suppose to interpret the Word with our minds or own thoughts, but it happens all the time. But Satan has put pride in the hearts of many Christian leaders to create division among those what believe on Christ. Like the word denomination. It means to divide, to separate, to keep apart. And in any battle that is the first thing a military person does or wants to do is to split the other military that it comes up against. Look around and see why some many Christians do battle with each other. Satan loves it too.
Now the next thing is metaphors, since we see on this thread that someone posted Eccl. chapter 12, I want to share with you that the first five verse's of that chapter is nothing but metaphors. I know you AMP bible translate that for you, but it has errors in it because it those five verse's are about your life, your countenance, and your physical body. So your Amp bible leaves your mind a bit lacking in what it really says in the original writings.
Next is figures of speech. Just like all languages we can see that they all have figures of speech. Like today in English we say "Hey man that is cool". That is a figure of speech. And if you go look up the word "cool" it defines itself as cold, fridged, or frosty. But in truth it means today from the "hippy time" of the 60's and 70's as this. I can relate to you and agree with you.
So is the bible written.
There is Hebraism which means this. That the Hebrew language is precise in all manner of speaking. Yet there are Hebraisms laced through out the bible.
For an example, man miss teach Gen. 9:22 by many pastors and teachers. Using what I said first that 2 Cor. 13:1 is the "formula" we can see that the later part of that verse of Gen. 9:22 "saw thy fathers nakeness" also confirms itself by two verse's that are written in Lev. 18:8 and Lev. 20:11. Pay attention to those words when you go to the two witness verse's.
We also have Acrostic's which are deep hidden info and is hidden by using the Hebrew alphabet.
For an example I know may Christians fight over Gods real name. There is no letter "J" in the ancient Hebrew and no "J" in the alphabet in the modern Hebrew language.
So when we see Jehovah in the bible, we have to know it is a mistake by having the knowledge that I presented.
There is in the book of Ester five verse's that have a acrostic showing Gods real name. First of those hidden is the adamology (spelling error)of the expression of "I am that I am". The next two is Gods name written forward, and then the last two of those acrostics has Gods name written backwards.
So, when you posted this info that you have I came to this thread watching as usual the infighting that happens so easily on glp and many Christians sites.
If Christians would just stop and learn this, Satan would not be able to in force his will on many Christians by dividing us even against the non-believer.
Amos 8:11 has been fulfilled and many Christians spout out what their "traditions of men's church systems" say, instead of what the "Word" Says.
This is how and why Christ finds fault with 5 of the 7 churches that are spoken of in Rev. chapter 2 and 3.
Five of them go into "Baal" worship and you can even see in Rev. chapter 3 there is an example of Balaam given.
But also you see near Rev. 2:9 and 3:9 why the two of the churches Christ finds no fault. Why? Rev. 3:10 confirms why, they kept the Word. "Not some tradition of some church system, but the real truth."
This is why Christ says "MANY shall come up to Him and say; Lord I prophesied in thy name and I healed in thy name." But Christ rejects them because they got caught up in the latter day deception out of ignorance.
Now forgive me if I have overloaded your mind with too much info. I am a teacher of the Word and I verify each thing I teach using the method of 2 Cor. 13:1. This is also how you can take down a lying person who says that they have the "holy spirit" speaking through them.
I have more, but will stop. I will not be on here long, and if you are interested in more, email me if you can to my "little star" email account on glp.
Many churches are falling into idolatry and they do not even know it.
So, my beloved who believes in Jesus,you must teach with patience and LOVE. But that does not mean you are to be a push over either.
With love I write these things.
