I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Greetings -
 Be encouraged that GOD is in every aspect of what happens on this great planet earth that He created.  Nobody can trump GOD.  He is untrumpable.  Almighty GOD works to accomplish His plans and He gets things done in most high ways.

The “know” factor with GOD is a place that is unequalled in power.  When we know to the core of our souls that GOD is far above everything, nothing can uproot our solid stance in our Father, the Most High.  The GOD we serve is totally about holy business, and He spends no time in sin.  Certainly we sin, and need to humble ourselves before our Lord in sincere repentance when we do.  Without GOD, we are mere mortals – with Him – we are more than conquerors.  He eternally works to get holy missions accomplished.  He uses willing servants to work with Him for the fruition of Master plans.

For every occurrence, there is evidence of the works of GOD because His word says in Isaiah 45:7 that He makes peace, and creates evil.  1 Samuel 16:14 says, “But the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul and an evil spirit from the Lord troubled him.”  1 Samuel 16:15 says, “And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.”  (Notice, please, in verse 14 that the word “Spirit” is capitalized in one instance and not in the other instance.  And in verse 15, Saul’s servants expressed that the evil spirit was from the Lord.)

When we continually love, obey, and trust GOD, He invests more and more into us because He trusts us increasingly based on our adherence to His perfect will.  Our faith grows exceedingly, and our charity toward each other abounds.  GOD is eternally faithful to His covenant relationship with His holy people.  In such, His covenant is irrevocable.  We are heirs with GOD and joint heirs with JESUS, the Christ.  There is absolute spiritual safety in the everlasting arms of our GOD.  There is nothing that He cannot work for good to those who love Him and to those who are called according to His purposes.

The “know “factor equips us to stand against the wiles of the devil and to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  When Satan assails us with his viciousness, we are armed with the readiness of what the Word of GOD so superbly affirms.  Cruel words and actions are launched against us.  The Word declares that the witness of GOD is greater.  And that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

We possess the greatest words, the greatest power, and the greatest truth - for it abides in us.  GOD’s words live, work, and abide forever and shall never pass away – they are forever settled in heaven.  The words of the devil pale in comparison to the Words that our GOD speaks.  The Words of GOD are Spirit and they are life!

We are more than conquerors, people, through the power of GOD that works within us.  When the enemy shall come in…the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.  Truly GOD works for His predestined purposes.  All that He does is for His sovereign glory. 

We are not orphans, people.  We have a Divine Father who is our Shepherd.  His Word states that His sheep know His voice and a stranger they will not follow.  We are of a royal priesthood, an holy nation – so why do so many Christians (not babes in Christ) operate as a people adrift with forlorn dispositions, weak communications, and lives that contradict what is holy truth?  What does GOD’s Word say?  Is His Word what we habitually say, and do? 

We are not spiritual hobos bowing to the dictates of the heathen persuasion.  We do not belong to Baal so we should continually conduct ourselves as the victorious servants of GOD that we are.  We are to work the Word of GOD – the Holy Bible.  The way to work the Word is to work with GOD as He works to fulfill His agenda.  Say the Word, do the Word, and inhale and exhale the awesome Word of GOD.  Thank our Lord that He equips us to represent as His vessels of honor. 

Why do people hate us? - they hate the GOD that works in us.  If GOD were their father, they would love us (John 8).  Why does Satan oppose us?  That is his job.  He does what he has been destined to do.  He is our enemy and his wicked deeds align with that truth.  Those that disobey GOD and oppose us are appointed to do such (1 Peter 2:8).  As for GOD’s people, His Word states in 1 Thessalonians 3:3, “That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.”  And remember that the Lord informs us to think it not strange when Satan works against us.  GOD steadfastly works effectively to prove that though evil forces fight against vessels of honor, the vessels of dishonor shall NOT prevail!

Why does GOD allow us to be persecuted?  The main reason is because He is GOD and does whatsoever He pleases.  Another crucial reason is for our profit that we may be partakers of His holiness (Hebrews 12:10).  Also, it is about GOD getting honor and glory so that it will be known that He alone is GOD.  Exodus 14:18 states, “And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gotten me honor upon Pharaoh,..” 

Satan is increasing his attacks. The more we draw nigh to GOD, the more Satan will oppose us.  He is not going to cease and desist.  He is not going to pity us.  He is not going to stop advancing against the forces of good.  That is why we must have the mind of Christ to be about spiritual revolution.  Satan will not cease until GOD destroys him.  A revival mindset is not enough in this spiritual climate in which we now reside.  Revivals have their place.  Radical holiness needs to be the order of this dispensation.  Revolution is essential to combat the vehement forces of evil that display boldly in this present world.  We are not of this world.  We are kingdom of GOD activated to aid our Lord in the transformation of souls.

GOD chose us to be bold in our witness for Him.  We are to love and pray fervently for unbelievers and live lives that undeniably identify us as true worshippers of GOD.  We must love those who hate us but that does not mean that we are to tolerate their foolishness beyond what GOD instructs.  We are strangers and pilgrims here as we seek a better place with our Father. GOD’s Word instructs us to occupy until He comes.  We are not to occupy in a mode that shrinks from the onslaughts of Satan.  GOD has not given us a spirit of fear.  His Word says that through Him, we shall do valiantly.  The kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent taketh by force.  The whole armor of GOD is not negotiable for those who are serious about fighting the good fight of faith.  The Devil can devour anyone that does not keep on the whole armor of GOD.  GOD commands that we keep it on – if we disobey, the Devil has permission to devour.  It is up to us to obey.  GOD is no respecter of persons - He respects holiness.  He is always faithful to His Word whether or not we cooperate because He cannot deny Himself.  GOD and His Word are one!

Does anyone remember the words, “The revolution will not be televised?”  The Lord’s revolution will not be televised in the natural manner of things.  It will be broadcast on levels that will astound the doubters, and thrill GOD’s people.  The forthcoming revolution against the Devil shall result in evil hearts melting in the presence of our awesome GOD.  Knees will tremble upon the move of Almighty GOD in venues and areas that will witness and receive His messages with signs following!  The power and presence of GOD will resound with His Majesty.  In deeds, His holiness will explode in ways that will blaze with His brilliance and sovereignty!  Truly, He will prove that He is the Majesty on High!  Souls will be saved.  People will be sanctified, delivered and made whole in GOD.  Some will persist in their rebellion against GOD.  Woe to them…

The revolution approaches…whose fire cannot be quenched!  GOD FOREVER REIGNS…REJOICE IN HIS HIGHNESS (ISAIAH 13:3). 

Sovereign GOD works wonders - and beyond!

Scriptures from the King James Bible

Job 1:6, 7, 8
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou?  Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 

On this day, Friday December 24, 2010, Satan comes again and thus, this "face to face" memo to him from GOD:

GOD asks Satan, "Have you heard of my warriors that are on the supernatural horizon even as I speak this to you?"

Satan fearfully responds, "What warriors?"

"The warriors who are assigned for such a time as this.  I have anointed them to be relentless and tenacious against that which defies Me."

Quivering, Satan asks, "Who are they?"

"Some of them are already known to you.  A new breed, though, has joined them.  This relentless tenacious group will blindside you, Satan, from every position.  You know that I AM cannot be blindsided.  My faithful people will not always know what is coming but, because of My whole armour, as shown in Ephesians 6, they will be ready when whatever appears.  Further, the new breeders have trained others.  Those others are soon to be unveiled.  You know how John the Baptist was in the desert till the day of his shewing.  Luke 1:80 says, 'And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.'  Well, this new breed group of warriors is no longer desert dwelling.  And, they have put away childish things, and Satan, it is on...." 

"Speaking of John the Baptist - I remember that he lost his head for Me.  For the sake of John, and other saints of Mine, there is a bounty on your head, Satan, and I will not hold back the bounty hunters.  These have been engineered for end time ministries."    

Satan swallows, "Are the new breeders male or female?"

"Both - and more recruits have signed up, with more to come.  New breeders in training - don't you know?"

Satan does not respond to GOD's mocking, "Don't you know?"  He asks GOD, "Will you give me advance notice?"

"I will tell you, Satan, what you need to know on a need to know basis."

The Lord continues -

"I'm weaving the tales.
I'm spinning the webs.
I'm rocking the boats. 
I'm rebuking you, and the winds.
I'm spoiling your goods.
I'm ending your "reign."
I'm coming to get some of your people. 
What's My name?  I AM!"

Satan begins to interrupt GOD.

GOD speaks, "Be still and know that I am GOD."

"You owe debts, Satan.  I AM the debt collector - due time has come.  You owe My people - My prophets, My warriors, My soldiers, and all of My assortment of saints - those that are here now and those who have gone on."

In Revelation 6:10, My saints cried,
'...How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?'  Their answers are in movement - now is the time - in this life.  I have revengers at the ready and more on the way.  Romans 13:4 says, '...a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.'

"Oh yes, Satan, they are ever ready, indeed.  They will use means that follow the Words of My Holy Bible.  They are not attracted to your ways of hatred, revenge, and perverted "justice."  My ways have great appeal to them.  They are revengers who will execute justice for Me in pure, and holy ways.  But be not deceived, there will be casualties of war; however, My warriors will perform their assignments justly, in accordance with My words and commandments."     

Satan squirms in major discomfort.  Again, he begins to interrupt GOD.

GOD extends His hand in a "stop" motion.

Satan sulks but does not speak.

GOD continues, "Right now I am telling you to listen to Me because now I am not interested in what you desire to say."

"In my new breed army, I have warriors who are fully equipped to do major battles against you, Satan, and your evil assistants.  My warriors have been trained as an elite team of valiant vessels of honor.  These warriors are unlike any that have ever been appointed by Me.  They have end time ministry qualifications in full gospel force." 

"As you know, Satan - yes, all sin and come short of My glory but these end time warriors will be less and less inclined to sin, and when they do - their repentances will be rapid - regularly.  You will not gain ground with these, Satan.  Grounded and settled in Me - they are."

"I, GOD, declare, let the record show that these holy warriors are trained to kill darkness - to vanquish deception - to pull down strongholds - to subdue perversion, and to decimate wicked machinations - all for the advancement of MY kingdom.  They are a formidable force who shall not faint, quit, or fear what you have done, will do or plan to do.  Fully armored in Me - yes - that is the deal."

The Most High continues, "We are united in love in its variation of forms.  We love to fight the good fight of faith.  We love to fight against evil because we hate evil but we love righteousness.  We love that you hate us because that affirms that we are doing the gospel right.  We love to love the hell out of your people.  We love to win souls.  We love to witness dry bones live.  We love to spread the gospel that I AM is love."

Satan trembles but says nothing.

"This warrior troop, Satan, is fully persuaded that I am their Commander in Chief - and their Fortress.  They love, obey, and trust Me.  They await, in earnest, My military orders.  They are thirsty for blood - devil blood.  Holy supernatural blood transfusions are part of the order of this day.  The blood of some of your children will be transfused into the blood of JESUS to wash their sins away.  You have been blood sucking, Satan, long enough on GOD'S destined heirs.  The cross of My SON is their deliverance."

"I am poised, wicked one, with My trumpet call - out to the elite Special Forces.  Some of the team will come from unlikely places.  I have warriors in homeless shelters, jails/prisons, and living on the streets, - Oh don't be deceived - some of My best are from, and will come from such places."  Hark!  Let the record show - a select number of folks who have been disenfranchised are My franchisees indeed.

"More people, Satan, from every spectrum of society will surrender to Me.  The suits - the no-suits - the rich - the religious, and Oh yes, more backsliders will slide back to ME.  You know also that My reach is global.  Mark 16:15 says, '...Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.'  North, south, east and west, My gospel shall be preached, and whosoever will - shall come!"

"You can look forward, Satan, to My new breed mean machine team.  We mean to do exploits with excellence, and certain triumphant results." 

In the closing words of His memo to Satan, GOD says, "Those are just some previews of coming attractions.  Stay tuned for the next episodes."

"You are in trouble, Satan, in new and incomprehensible ways..."

Isaiah 43:19
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?  I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

"Now that you've got My memo - be gone!"

Satan boils out - until...

"I am poised, wicked one, with My trumpet call - out to the elite Special Forces. Some of the team will come from unlikely places. I have warriors in homeless shelters, jails/prisons, and living on the streets, - Oh don't be deceived - some of My best are from, and will come from such places."

Sandra's comment:

After, posting this today, just a few minutes ago (11:26 a.m. EST) -

I read on this headline, "Homeless man turns life around at Baptist Church."  The article goes on to quote the pastor, Ike Brown, say about Danny Howey, "The Lord sent him to us."  After Howey was baptized, Pastor Brown stated,  "I've never seen an individual cry with the passion that he did."  And a parishoner stated about Howey, "You don't always expect much from those folks," Taylor said.  "You don't expect them to be steadfast and stay the course like Danny."

Sandra's comment:

Wow!  I didn't expect a confirmation from our Lord so soon after He led me to write this today.  Praise His holy name!

Scriptures from the King James Bible


And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. (2 Kings 6:16)

…but with us is the Lord our God to help us; and to fight our battles… (See 2 Chronicles 32:8)

God is the Master of everything. There are holy battle plans revealed unto us by His Spirit. He is a God who has dominion over the temporal, and the eternal. We serve a supernatural God who operates in the realm of the visible, and the invisible – He is the God of it all.

Our role is to conform to His precepts, and to delight in His testimonies. When we heed what He commands, we benefit in manifold ways as God faithfully rewards our loyalty to what He instructs.

The righteous engage in warfare to destroy the works of the Devil. We have at our ready the power of Almighty God who sends forth His heavenly army with His angels to fight the forces of evil.

When we are engaged in combat we must remember that our protection is allegiance to God’s truth – being mindful that we are covenant people with missions of holiness. We are appointed to resist fear for there is no need to fear since the Father assures that He is our battle strategist. At His beckoning, His army flanks, and surrounds us. And He gives His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. With our full armor in place, we are a force through God, the unconquerable Military Master.

At times, we tend to give glory to Satan when we allow our hearts to become distracted by his opposition. God tells us to guard our hearts and to give no place to the devil. The Word states, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” (Isaiah 26:3). Yes, we will become battle weary and need our Father to restore our souls, and to renew our strength. He is there to help us – he promised that He will never fail us or forsake us.

Let us strive, in earnest, to remember whose we are, and whom we serve. The power of God is mightier than any force of wicked energy. We are appointed to let the peace of God rule in our hearts because we indeed belong to the Most High who is more than enough to defeat the foes of His gospel. He can do that unhindered if we fight the good fight of faith - in Him.  Our cooperation can guarantee the victories, thanks be unto God!

This is fiction.

It is New Year’s Day at the Sterling Arena for the basketball home game in Los Angeles, California. The L.A. Giants will play the Philadelphia Tigers.  Friends Melvin, Santos, Jamal, Donald, and Leroy arrive pumped for the game.  They take their seats in the arena.  The guys are all single except for newlywed, Jamal.  His wife, Donna, went to church to give God thanks for another New Year.

Leroy is a backslidden Christian who lives next door to Donald, the “cool” one in the group.

Donald resides with his uncle Tyrone, a thoroughbred Christian who lives and breathes holiness – so much so that Donald is “too through” with his “unc.”  If it were not for his finances, Donald would be out of unc's house.

Melvin is the lover who boasts a bevy of beauties at his beck and call, while Santos is the jokester who is the life of the parties.

The friends eagerly wait for the player introductions.

Santos elbows Donald, “Here they come!"  They all look on.

The “prime-time” players are, for the Giants: Bryant “Popeye” Miles, and Matthew Teak, and for the Tigers: Mark “Jam” Harris, and Timothy “Shake” Minor.

The players for the Tigers come out from the tunnel first.

Some attendees greet them with polite applause while others yell out with “boos.”

When the Giants players appear, the fans roar with glee.

Anthony Cole, the Giants rookie, is on injured reserve.  As he gingerly limps onto the court, much of the crowd greets him with applause.

The fans erupt in ecstatic delight at the appearance of Popeye, the Giants slam dunk king.

Coach Evan Nelson, for the Tigers, huddles with his team to hastily review strategies and game plans.

The Giants’ coach, Otis Hart, strides to a seat on the bench while his players prepare for tip-off.

The ref, Sebastian, blows the whistle and it’s on -

SUDDENLY – a brilliant light shines throughout the arena.  The in-house screens blink three times.  Full blast trumpets are heard from every corner of the building.

People are completely unnerved – except for the Christians who deeply know God.  The saints are certainly curious but the whole armor of God renders them calm.

Next – on the screens, in resplendent glory, appears Jesus.

Leroy exclaims, “O my gosh, Jesus is on the mainline!"  Guilt consumes him because he knows he ain’t right.  He is seized with terror as he views Jesus on the screens at the basketball game.

Santos yells, “This ain’t no joke!”  He is captivated by the splendor of this jaw-dropping action from the heavenly realm.

On the screens, the words appear, “This is the Day” in vivid red hues.

Jesus speaks, “TIME-out - this is Jesus broadcasting from the heavenlies.”

Popeye stares, and says excitedly, “Man, that’s my grandmamma Bootsie next to Jesus up there!  She taught me the gospel but I went the other way.”

His teammate Anthony is too stunned to respond.

Jesus continues, “With Me in the heavenlies, to witness this grand occasion, are a few of My saints, Ellen “Bootsie” Cheers, Clinton Simmons, and Charles Miles.”

Now – Leroy is on his knees in repentance with godly sorrow – others in the arena join him in kneeled postures to repent for their sins.

The saints in the arena stand with their hands lifted – their faces aglow.

Jesus informs, “Also, this occasion features Ellis Minor, Doris Gallatin, and Thomas “Mickey” Wallace – none of whom made it up here.”

At the mention of Mickey, a fan, Mickey’s son Artis, runs out a door.

Jesus tells the crowd, “I have called this TIME-out to warn all of you that you have but a short time.  Satan already knows that his time is shorter.  His aim is to keep you deceived.  I came, on this New Years Day, to tell the truth to one and to all.”

People worldwide are watching this play out on screens everywhere.

From all corners of the globe, the message of Jesus appears.

Tyrone, Donald’s uncle, at home, is prostrate before the Lord joyfully sobbing on the floor in front of his TV.

Astonished folk are all over.  This is life-altering for sure!

From hell, in anguish, Mickey pleads to Jesus, “Please, deliver me from this horror.”

Jesus replies, “I cannot - it is too late.”

Jesus reminds Mickey of the numerous invitations that he received to accept the Lord Christ.  “You said no to me then – I must say no to you now.”

Mickey then begins to plead for his son.  “Please, I saw my son, Artis, run out of there.  Send some people to witness Your gospel to him.”

Jesus responds, “He heard it enough to make his choice.  The Word of God instructs in Isaiah 55:6, ‘Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.’ - neither you nor Artis did seek – therefore you did not find.”

Mickey screams out in agony, and fear.

Jamal is transfixed.  He wishes now that he had attended church with his wife.  He looks around at his buddies – they look scared out of their wits.

Clinton Simmons, on screen now with Jesus, had led Matthew to the Lord.

Matthew had promised to maintain the Lord as first in his life – instead, he went wildly astray.  Matthew stares at Clinton up on the screen.  He tells Coach Hart, “My heartbeat is furious!”

Coach Hart responds, “Who you telling?  I’m about to flat-line up in here!”

Doris’ children, watching from home, are grieved to learn the fate of their mother.  “She was a good mother.  Why was she not saved?”

Jesus lovingly answers, “She did not accept Me as her Lord.”

The children all began to wail in misery.

Jesus wept.  “I invite you all to accept Me as Savior.”

They agree and are flooded with His peace.

Everett Jitton was home alone, eating a meal, when he saw Jesus show up on his big screen TV.  He stood up and shouted, “What the …!  This is baloney, I don’t believe in this crap!”  Instantly, he choked on his food and dropped dead on the floor.

Meanwhile, back at Sterling Arena, Charles Miles speaks to Jesus as he stands there next to Him.

Charles’ Christian family is there at the game.  The appearance of Charles in company with Jesus brings them goose bumps galore.   His family members glow immensely from the glory of God.

Tenderly, Jesus smiles at the united holy group.

For them, there is no need for words to be expressed. They lift up holy hands and worship Him.

To be continued...

Greetings -

Scriptures from the King James Bible 

This post was inspired by Sharon of  She mentioned, "holding on to Egypt," and suggested that I do a post relative to that topic.  Our Lord gave "witness" in my spirit that I was to go with Sharon's suggestion.  I salute you, my dear sister Sharon, and I thank our Lord that we are, to use your son's words, "Walking with JESUS!"  


I go on record to confess that I have been afflicted, from time to time, with the dis-ease of Egyptitis - you know the place where we "wish" that the Lord had let us stay in "Egypt."  We "stroll" down memory lane and remember when we did this or that, had this, that, or the other, went wherever, and were with him, her, and them.  We even go so far sometimes as to deceive ourselves to believe that those were the good old days.  Yeah, right!

Today to help me here, our Lord led me to His Word.  There He reminded me of the Israelites who became afflicted with Egyptitis.  This is a stroll down Exodus lane which ends in the book of Joshua.  

In Exodus 3:7, the Lord tells Moses that He knows of the sorrows of the Israelites.  The Lord goes on to share with Moses in Exodus 3:8, "And I am come down to deliver them..." 

That is great wonderful news.  In verse 12, the Lord assures Moses, "...Certainly I will be with thee,...''

Those are comforting words indeed to hear from Almighty GOD.

We stroll further to Exodus 4:29 where Moses and Aaron gather "together all the elders of the children of Israel" and in verse 30 and 31, Moses and Aaron "spake all the words which the Lord had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people" and "the people believed" - "then they bowed their heads and worshipped."

So far so good.

Here the plot thickens.  In Exodus 5:7, we read, "Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves."

We travel on to Exodus 6:9 where it states of the Israelites, "...but they heark-ened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage."

This has shifted.  We just finished where the people believed and bowed their heads and worshipped.  What has happened to these foolish Israelites?!  The same thing that sometimes happens to us - saved, sanctified, "I love you, JESUS," - saints of GOD.  Lord, please help us all to keep our minds stayed on You.

Ok, let me get back on this stroll down Exodus lane.  Fast forward to Exodus 14:10, "And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord."

Huh?!  The Israelites witnessed all of the signs, wonders, and plagues from GOD back in Egypt -and they were afraid as the enemy was in pursuit of them?!  What were they thinking?  Probably some of the same things that we think when we allow ourselves to fear when we know that GOD has not given us a spirit of fear.

In Exodus 14:12, the Israelites say to Moses, "Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians?  For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness."

Now skip to Exodus 15:1.  Here the children of Israel sing a song of triumph unto the Lord.  Later in the same chapter, verse 24, the people murmur against Moses for lack of water.  Add further insult in Exodus 16:3 where the children of Israel speak to Moses and Aaron, "And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger."

Are all of these different choices reflective of double-mindedness or what?!  Lord, please help us all!

Now the stroll leads to Exodus 32 where the children of Israel tell Aaron in Exodus 32:1, "...Up, make us gods..."  The result was a golden calf.  They have really lost their minds now!  Does that remind us of anyone - hint: in the mirror. 

When Moses questions Aaron, Aaron responds in verse, 24, "And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off.  So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf."  

Huh?!  What was wrong with Aaron?!  He was a Levite, and Moses' brother.  The same brother who GOD appointed as "spokesman unto the people" - Exodus 4:16.  Now Aaron knew  better, right?  So do we, yet... 

The word of deliverance from the Lord came to the children of Israel but when persecution, tribulation, and inconveniences surfaced, many of them became fainthearted, and were smote by GOD in the wilderness.  

The land of milk and honey was much desired but many failed to press on to "pass over unto the other side" - Mark 4:35. 

For purposes, I will stroll from the Old to the New - the New Testament that is - and park awhile in Mark 4.  In Mark 4:35, Jesus says to his disciples, "...Let us pass over unto the other side."  But before "the other side," "there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the ship so that it was now full" - verse 37.  The disciples woke up JESUS, verse 38, and asked, "Master, carest thou not that we perish?"

Recently, when I heard T.D. Jakes relate this Mark 4 story, he said something like, "I don't know what the disciples were thinking relative to "Master, carest thou not that we perish?"  Jakes said that they should have been of the mindset that "GOD can't drown."  He meant that they couldn't drown with JESUS in the boat with them because JESUS can't drown!  (Well, of course my attempt is feeble in regard to relating what Jakes expressed...but I hope that I did well enough with his story for you to get the drift.)     

At this juncture, I am strolling back over to the Old Testament.  

All of the children of Israel left Egypt but all did not enter the promised land.  But O Hallelujah! - there are two, in particular, who did - Joshua and Caleb.  One of my favorite scriptures about Caleb is Numbers 13:30, "And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it."  That sounds like warrior talk to me - Yes!     

These conclusion scriptures "speak" about Joshua and Caleb:

Numbers 14:6
And Joshua son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land,...

Numbers 14:8
If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

Numbers 14:24
But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him wil I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

Joshua 14:8
Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the Lord my God.

Joshua 14:9
And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou has wholly followed the Lord my God.

Joshua 14:12
Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day;... 

We are wise to remember how our Lord responded to the murmuring and complaining of the children of Israel.  2 Corinthians 13:2, "...I will not spare:..." 

And - Glory to GOD - how our Lord responded about Caleb in Numbers 14:24, "...hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land..."

Finally, let us say as did Caleb in Joshua 14:12, "Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the Lord spake in that day;.."

Greetings -

Here are instances where Jesus, God and the Spirit have been removed:

Matthew 25:13 - KJV
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 25:13 - NIV
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
(Note: They removed "Son of man" which equals - they removed Christ.)

Luke 4:4 - KJV
...That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luke 4:4 - NIV
...Man does not live on bread alone.
(Note: They removed "God.")

John 6:47 - KJV
...He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47 - NIV
I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
(Note: There is no mention of "on me."  How is that telling us the truth if they leave out "on me?"  To remove "on me" is to remove  Christ.)

The Acts 2:30 - KJV
...according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

The Acts 2:30 - NIV
But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne.
(Note: They removed "Christ.")

The Acts 8:37 - KJV
...I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

The Acts 8:37 - NIV
(Note: They removed Christ - and the entire verse.  The NIV does  not have verse 37 - at all.) 

The Acts 23:9 - KJV
...let us not fight against God.

The Acts 23:9 - NIV
(Note: They removed "God."  That statement "let us not fight against God" has been removed.)

1 Peter 1:22 - KJV
...through the Spirit..

1 Peter 1:22 - NIV
(Note: They removed "the Spirit.")

Revelation 20:9 - KJV came down from God...

Revelation 20:9 - NIV
fire came down from heaven...
(Note: They removed "God.")

Revelation 5:14 - KJV
... and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Revelation 5:14 - NIV
...and the elders fell down and worshipped.
(Note: They removed "him..." - which equals - they removed Christ.)

1 John 4:3 - KJV
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:

1 John 4:3 - NIV
but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.
(Note: They removed "that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not "of" God. - The KJV says that EVERY spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God."  The NIV removed "is come in the flesh" - does that mean that they are one of the EVERY spirit?) Also in that scripture, the NIV mentions "Jesus" but removed "Christ."  It says, " but every spirit that does not acknowlege Jesus is not from God."  The KJV says "Jesus Christ."

It deeply disturbs me that in the above cited instances, "God, Jesus, and the Spirit" were removed. 

Here are a couple of other instances of NIV "changes":

Romans 13:9 - KJV
...Thou shalt not bear false witness,...

Romans 13:9 - NIV
(Note: That statement "Thou shalt not bear false witness" has been removed. - Does that mean that the NIV does bear false witness?)

Revelation 21:24 - KJV
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light:

Revelation 21:24 - NIV
The nations will walk by its light,...
(Note: They removed "which are saved.")

Notes from former NIV readers (first mentioned here under the topic, "MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE ORIGINAL KING JAMES BIBLE, DATED SUNDAY DECEMBER 12, 2010.)

- NIV perverts even the tone of the word of GOD (e-mail from a former NIV reader)

- Former NIV reader says NIV alienates the Father and the Son
(The former NIV reader stated, "Sure, I got saved by the NIV, but it made Jesus a little bit distant from the Father.")

Sandra's comments:  For new converts to Christ, I have often been informed that the Gospel of John is a good book to begin in the original KJV.  There have been vigorous discussions that the NIV and other versions are easier to understand.  For hundreds of years before the other versions became available, scores of people got saved with usage of the original KJV version.  Many strong, potent, powerful Christians were/are the result.  Of course, sincere prayer is vital for understanding God's word, and of utmost importance is to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, souls, and minds, and to love others, according to God's commands.

Also, as the former NIV reader stated above, "Sure, I got saved by the NIV, but it made Jesus a little bit distant from the Father," 

Further, relative to the NIV being easier to understand:

All of those removals of "God, and Jesus" that I mentioned in scripture citations above, makes me even more disinclined to support the NIV.  If I were a new convert, I believe that I'd be inclined to read the Bible that included God, and Jesus, such as is shown in the original KJV.

In addition, I read that one Christian stated that it is possible to get saved using the NIV, but that it does not promote spiritual growth. 

Some may believe that those removals of God, and Jesus from the NIV are not of major importance. I lovingly disagree. Also, I wonder what else has been removed from the NIV. In addition, the website mentions omissions and distortions relative to the NAS and the NKJV. I have read some of that, as well.

Relative to the foreign languge translation matters:

I confess ignorance about said issue but sincerely state that I am deeply grateful for those that our Lord has led in those realms.

Certainly we need saints who are knowledgable to go forth into all the world to teach and to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God, according to what the word of our Lord commands. Indeed there are people of excellence who our Lord has appointed to minister relative to foreign languages and cultures.  Their valuable endeavors are much appreciated. 

My original post on this topic received numerous lengthy comments that varied in tone.  I deeply appreciate all of those comments because truly we do learn from one another.  My firm belief is that we are all students and teachers in the body of our Lord.  Praise His awesome all-knowing name.  

I was ready to move on from the topic but continued to get comments about it.  The most recent comment was one that I read this a.m. (Thursday December 16, 2010) that was sent to me, via e-mail, by a fellow Christian who stated that she was referred here to LIONS SHARE MAJESTY relative to the said topic.  I posted her comments on this blog this a.m. under the post topic, "MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE ORIGINAL KING JAMES BIBLE" dated Sunday December 12, 2010.

Also, I have moved here the comments below relative to my "TAG ON" about the KJV posting.

Comments from "TAG ON" post dated Sunday December 12, 2010:

Interesting observations. It's amazing what you find in the Bible when you become a student of the Word of God. As for me, my favorite version of the Bible is the King James Version. This is mostly because it is a more strict word for word translation from the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts, and also the King James Version shows in italics any words the translators inserted into the passage. This makes it easy for me when I want to translate from the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts to see how they arrived at the English wording that they did. Again, this is just my personal preference. I do use the NIV at times when I want to quote verse, and the NIV is clearer for quoting.

Hi Pastor Frank -

Thank you for weighing in on this. Your viewpoints are valued indeed.

Interesting that you mentioned the part about the italics in the KJV. Yes...indeed.

My experience is that the original KJV is easier to memorize and quote. When I started mostly using the KJV, that progressed to where I can quote it from memory for about a half hour without repeating a citation. Sometimes I quote it out loud without pausing - for more than 30 minutes. Some years ago, I found myself in a disturbing circumstance and I didn't have my Bible with me. I was able to quote out loud extensively from the KJV and that was a major help in that mini-crisis. Now I take my Bible everywhere. Some months ago, I was with some people and we were getting out of the car to go to the grocery store. I got my Bible. One of my companions told me that I could leave my Bible in the car. My response was that I take my Bible everywhere - and I added there could be someone in the grocery store who needs something from the Bible. They agreed...though I don't believe that it was heartily. No Bible goes with me everywhere, and I pray regularly to our Lord that I will steadfastly live what is in its pages!

May our Lord help us all. 

Back to the present  today, Thursday December 16, 2010:

From Sandra:

Thank you to all who have commented. I sincerely appreciate your viewpoints and believe that there has been teaching and learning in the process.

Love to you all, Sandra


Righteous Father God, only You know it all.  I have written here as Your messenger with the awareness that I am finite, and that You are infinite.  We are commanded to love You, to obey You, and to trust You - above all else. 

Please move upon hearts to seek You in earnest in regard to this Bible version matter.  I know what You have instructed me and that is to mostly use the original King James version - with rare exceptions.  I am also certain that You instructed me to post these comments.  What I don't know is what You purpose to do in the hearts of others.  That role, Lord, is Yours alone.  You assigned me this duty to post the words.  My prayer is that You are sought for clarity and direction on the matter.  Some of my fellow
body-of-Christ members already have the necessary clarity from You while others do not.  May only Your will be obeyed by us all.

Thank you, Lord - Amen.  

To close, below are words from our Lord:  

This a.m. the Lord gave me these scriptures:

Galatians 1:7 - KJV
...and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

Jeremiah 23:36 - KJV
...for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts our God.

And Hosea 4:6 - KJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:...

Greetings -


The kisses of JESUS
are O so tender and
so gentle
with no pretense -
He is the greatest
Lover and Friend -
There is none better than Him

I've been SON kissed
and how glorious it is
to be kissed by the SON

O, the days and nights
that the SON kissed my tears away -
As the wetness ran down my face,
The SON'S kisses rescued me
from the moments
when I was consumed by distress -
O how the SON'S kisses remind me
of how bountifully He cares for us

SON kisses awaken me
to the juices of His
affection, beauty and
His deep passion for

The SON'S love for us is
so intense, pure and potent
The kisses of JESUS are like no other -
To be kissed by the SON 
is to be kissed indeed.

How many are SON kissed with me?!

Scriptures from the King James Bible:

Song of Solomon 1:2
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. 

Psalm 85:10
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.


Gracious giving Father, in the name of JESUS, may we glory in Your kisses and reciprocate with kisses of our own.  May we daily kiss You with our thoughts, words, and actions.

And thank you, Lord, that we have kissed Satan
good-bye relative to his reign in our lives. 

We made choices to walk with You - thus - because You reign, we reign as Your heirs and joint heirs with Your beloved SON JESUS - the SON KISS for sure!

Here are just three examples of what I found on the comparison chart that I provided the link to on my earlier post on this matter.
(I did not simply read what the chart cited - I looked the information up in the actual cited Bible translations.)

Matthew 18:11 - KJV
For the son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Mathew 18:11 - NIV
That scripture is omitted entirely.  In my Comparative Study Bible, the NIV goes from verse 10 to verse 12.  Verse 11 is not there!  That bothers me.

Matthew 9:13 - KJV
...for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Matthew 9:13 - NIV
For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.  "to repentance" is omitted. 

Colossians 1:14 - KJV
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:14 - NIV
In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.  "through his blood" is omitted.  That really bothers me. 

The comparison charts that I cited have numerous such examples.

This a.m. the Lord led me to do some Bible translation/version research.  I found the following:  

"Virginia Mullenkott served as a consultant on the NIV translating committee, together with the deceased Marten H. Woudstra (a homosexual), and therefore it is no wonder that the word "sodomite" is not found in the NIV." 

In research, I read that, according to Virginia Mullenkott, she was not an open lesbian when she worked with the NIV.  Currently, she is an open lesbian.  

I googled Virginia Mullenkott and found on
"...She active member of Christian Lesbians OUT.  She served as a stylistic consultant for the New International Version of the Bible.  Mullenkott is an open lesbian..."

Chairman of the NIV Old Testament translation committee, Dr. Marten H. Woudstra (deceased), was a homosexual.  

Sources: :
On home page, on top left of screen, click on "King James Bible Page" - once there, on right of screen, click on "Bible Version Comparison Charts."

The charts are:

1. Westcott and Horts Magic Marker Binge
2. Various contradictions and omissions
3. Bible versions and the preeminence of Christ
On home page, on left of screen, a bit past the half mark down the screen, click on "The Bible" - from there scroll down to "New International Version (NIV)" and notice such headings as:

 - NIV publisher (Zondervan) is owned by people who publish The Satanic Bible.

- Which Bible verses did the NIV delete? (The Jehovah's Witness "Bible" deletes the EXACT same ones.  All of them)

 - NIV perverts even the tone of the word of GOD (e-mail from a former NIV reader)

- NIV Old Testament Chairman, Dr. Marten Woudstra, a Sodomite Homosexual

- Former NIV reader says NIV alienates the Father and the Son
(The former NIV reader stated, "Sure, I got saved by the NIV, but it made Jesus a little bit distant from the Father.")    

Also, on that subject page, there are other Bible translation headings.

I am not a gullible person who believes all that I read or hear.  As our Lord's Spirit leads, it is wise to seek the Lord, pray, read, hear, and seek the Lord, and pray some more.  Only our Lord can lead us to the fullness of truth.

Before proceeding here, I need to clarify that I am not urging anyone to change the version of the Bible that you read unless, of course, you seek the Lord, and He instructs you to do so.  These are my experiences which I felt led of the Lord to share.

As were many other Christians, I was raised with the original King James Bible.  Also later, as did other Christians, I began to read other Bible versions.  A few years ago, The Amplified Bible is the one that I mostly used until one day the Lord spoke to me and told me to mostly use the original King James Bible.  I began to do so.

After some weeks, I noticed that I had become more potent and powerful in the Lord.  I did not attribute that to the change in Bible versions until I moved to Florida and met a pastor who uses an original King James Bible.  I asked him why he read that version.  He responded that it was the most potent and powerful version.  That is when I knew that that was why I had become more potent and powerful in the Lord.  Of course, I know that obedience to the content is vital.   

Also, the original King James Bible is easier to memorize and it has more rhythm.  I have a relative who mostly uses the New King James Bible but when she reads the Psalms, for rhythmic reasons, she reads them in the original King James Bible. 

Some people express that they cannot understand/follow the archaic language in the original King James Bible.  A few years ago I read where a five year old child testified of her preference for the original King James Bible.  Whatever I do not understand in the original King James Bible, I pray for the Lord to help me to know.  In fact, daily before I open my Bible I pray for understanding - trusting that the Lord will illuminate what He needs to when and how He desires.

One Christian friend of mine (I'll call her Debbie) was advised by another Christian to stop reading the NIV version.  I did not know that when I shared with Debbie how the Lord had led me away from the NIV and the Amplified versions.  She mentioned to me that I was the second Christian who had mentioned to her doubts about the NIV.  Another Christian friend of mine (I'll call her Kate) stated that her pastor uses the New King James Version and that she used that version to follow him.  I shared with Kate what the Lord informed me, and asked her if she was more concerned about following what her pastor used or what our Lord instructed.  I did not advise Debbie or Kate to forsake their versions.  I asked them to seek the Lord about it. 

Well, weeks later Debbie stated that she had started solely reading the original King James Bible.  She mentioned that one day a non-Christian client asked her what had happened to her because she sounded more confident in tone.  The only thing that Debbie could attribute her change to was that she now solely read the original King James Bible.  A non-Christian noticed that Debbie had become more potent in tone. 

As for Kate - first I must state that Kate is very firm about seeking the Lord.  When we advise and inform one another, we both crave "Where is that in the Bible" and while we listen to one another, we firmly adhere to seeking the Lord in prayer for final words.  Weeks after we had the Bible version conversation, Kate informed me that one day she was in a Christian bookstore and her hand was "drawn" to select from the shelf an original King James Bible.  She knew that it was the Lord who led her to purchase it.  Later, she too expressed to me the potency of it versus the New King James Bible.  She further stated that though her pastor uses the New King James she has no problems following him using the original King James Bible. 

I read where other Christians stated that the development of all of these Bible versions is profit driven.  Also, that Satan waters down content in some of the versions because he knows that to omit certain words and scriptures means less potency and power for those who read the diluted versions.  Another pastor mentioned how people have all of these Bible versions and don't read and obey any of them.  Some of this information caused me to think.  Years ago, most Christians used the only Bible version that was primarily available - the original King James Bible.  My take is that biblically they had less to choose from but in many cases, they were/are stronger Christians than some are today.   

I was led to do some research relative to some of the different versions available.  What I discovered was that it is true that some other versions omit entire scriptures, and also they omit and/or change wording that is in the original King James.  Some have argued that even the original King James Version is not original Bible text.  That is likely true but of the other versions that I have read, the original King James is the best of the English versions that are available.    

There is a very convincing comparison chart on the Internet that shows some glaring differences in various version content.  After reading that chart, I am more convinced about how the Lord led me relative to primary usage of the original King James.  I must add that, on rare occasions, as led by the Lord, I do refer to the Amplified, and my study Bible for commentary purposes.

Ref - The commentary in Bibles:

I was heavily into reading commentaries until - again -
when I moved to Florida, a pastor stated to be mindful about accepting commentaries as gospel truth.  And when I moved back to D.C. and took a Bible course, the teachers stressed to receive from the Holy Spirit before reading commentaries.  And lastly, a fellow blogger, who was once an atheist expressed that commentaries are not necessarily gospel truth.  Now I refer to Bible commentaries only as led by the Lord, which is rarely.    

  • Am I saying that to be a potent Christian, you must read the original King James Bible?  No, these are my experiences and the experiences of people that I know.  Full obedience to GOD to the best of our knowledge is the answer for spiritual fulfillment.  
  • When I watch Christian programming, I do have a preference for the bishops and pastors who use the original King James Bible.  One pastor, reads first from the original King James Bible and then he reads the same passage(s) from the Amplified Bible.  Of course, my spirit needs to bear witness that they are true people of GOD.  We know that Satan knows the Bible but does not obey it therefore our spirits do not bear witness to any holy anointed power from him for he does not possess any form of holy power.      
  • At church, I read from the original King James Bible no matter what version is used by the pastor(s) or guest speaker(s).  
  • I am an editor and recently edited a book by a Christian who uses the NIV.  I did not urge her to use the original King James Bible because that is not my role as an editor.  
  • Without love, we are nothing - regardless of our Bible usage - whatever the version(s). 
For those who are so inclined, click above on my blog tab, "BIBLE INFORMATION" to view the comparison chart relative to the original King James Bible versus other versions.  Also, under the subject tab is a link that gives information relative to issues with the New King James Bible.  

In sum, I strongly urge that you seek the Lord as to whether to change the usage of your Bible version(s). 

Thank you for your indulgence.

Greetings -

This is fiction with truth.

Three men are at the pool.

One of them is afraid to go in so he wades in the water with his feet.

One of them heads to the kiddie pool and goes in.  He's waist deep in the water.  He splashes around there. 

Kids look at him as the intruder that he is. 

One of them asks, "Hey mister, why are you in the kiddie pool?!"

Sheepishly, the man responds, "I like it here."

The kid says to him, "But you don't belong in the kiddie pool." 

The other kids chime in with agreement.

The man is ashamed.  He leaves the kiddie pool and joins the man who is wading with his feet in the water. 

The kids look on and shake their heads.  They go on about having their pool fun.

Meanwhile the third man is in the deep part of the pool.  He has dived off the diving board with daring moves and exercises.  He's swimming with strong strokes.  It's obvious that he's in a place of immense enjoyment.  He's having a ball with the other deep swimmers.  It's a splash blast!

The two water waders look over at the deep activities.  The waders look at one another - "Naw" - they agree.  They stay ankle deep.

That scenario is like some of what goes on in Christian communities. 

There are those who desire to be ankle deep in GOD - a little something something with GOD.

Then there are those who desire to be in the kiddie pool - about waist deep - - some more of GOD but not all of GOD.

Then there are those who desire deep water experiences with GOD - all the way in - fully covered.

Are we wading, kidding, or swimming in the high tides?

P.S. I recently heard Bishop T.D. Jakes say, "GOD can't drown!"

Scriptures from the King James Bible:

1 Corinthians 13:11
...but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1 Corinthians 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
