​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​I. It is more than a translation issue!

     Many think it is only a difference in the translation from the Greek into the English language.    
      What is not realized is that the modern day scholars (1881 -2017 AD) have "turned aside" from the Greek 
      Textus Receptus (that the Bible has always been translated from since the Reformation) and went to a
different Greek text which they claim to be older, more faithful to the original scriptures / manuscripts /
​      Greek Text.

​     Using a different Greek text is not translating, it is changing  the inspired Word of God. (​2Tim.3:16-
      17, 2Peter.1:20-21, Deut.12:32, Prov.30:5-6, Rev.22;:18) 
The undeniable evidence is in the fruit (Footnotes)

         "by their fruits (Footnotes) you shall know them." 
(Matt 7:15-21)

      Fruit (or footnotes) is proof that their foundation / "root" is different. This a law of creation that the
      fruit identifies the root. (Rom.1:20, Psa.19:1-3, 1John.5:7-8)


     This NEW Greek text is based on two manuscripts, called the Sinaiticus and Vaticanus which they (the    
      modern day scholars) say are older and more reliable. This is where the
changes, deletions and
come from. (Note: the examples in Chart above) More information in Phase 1, Page 2

Note: This statementby the New American Standard Bible (NASB) / Principles of translation. "It was felt 
      that the word-for-word literalness was unacceptable to the modern reader, a change was 
made in the 
      direction of a more current English idiom." This lead to giving
consideration "to the latest available 
     manuscripts with a view to determine the best Greek Text..."
[56] This latest and best text" (according
​      to these editors) is 
the Codex Sinaiticus and Vaticanus. (The 23rd. Edition of Eberhard Nestle's.[54])

      A. Is there such a thing as "the latest" and "best text?"

            When God inspired the Old and New Testament writers to write down His Word, and there was no
            need to updated it.
(1Peter.1:21, 2Tim.3:16) There was a need to updated the English, but NEVER to
            updated what inspired! God has not changed His mind or left something out.
Therefore is no such
          thing as the latest and best manuscripts.
 Why would God inspire (2Tim.3:16-17) these modern day
            scholars to add
[60] to His Word or diminish[60] anything from His Word? (The Greek Text) 
Of course 
          NOT! He would violating His own Word. 
(Deut.4:2; 12:32, Prov.30:5-6, Rev.22:18)

However this what they doing, evidenced in their footnotes.

​            Under the "disguise" (deception / smokescreen) of providing a Bible with modern day English, they
            are changing (diminishing from) the Greek text. (The Texts Receptus) 

            They are not translating (i.e. expressing the sense of (words or text) in another language) 
they are     
​            changing God-breathed Words.  
This sample is one of hundreds. To teach or promote that "the
            inspiration of God
(2Tim.3:16-17) caused these translators to change "the only begotten Son" to "the
            only begotten
God" is to say the Jesus had a beginning. Jesus was the beginning! "In the beginning
            was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God"
(John.1:1, Col.16-17, Heb.1:1-2) To
            teach or 
promote in our preaching that Jesus is the only begotten God, is preaching ANOTHER JESUS,
(2Cor.11:1-15, Note:v.7)

The apostles warned about this in the 1st. Cent.

a. Corruption of God's Word as the serpent beguiled Eve

                      For "we are not as many which corrupt the word of God..." (2Cor.2:17; 2Cor.11:3-15,
                        Note:v.7 Gal.1:6-8, Phil.3:1-14, Col.1:16-17 / 4:16, 1Tim.4:1-2; 4:1-4, Titus.1:9, Heb.1:9 / Gal.1:11-
Paul said, "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. For if he that cometh
                      preacheth another Jesus, (i.e.  a Jesus that is not deity, that did not resurrect bodily from the 
                      grave) whom we have not preached" 
(2Cor.11:1-4) Today the serpent (Devil / Satan) is still 
                      provoking the 
Church / Eve into adding to (Gen.2:16-17; 3:1-3) and diminishing God's Word 
                      from the pulpit through his "ministers of righteousness" 

                b. False epistles / letters / manuscripts
Paul warned the Church of the Thessalonians that they "not be soon shaken...by letter
[57]as from us."(2Thes.2:1-2) This warning was given (49-54 AD?) even before
                      the cannon of scripture had been established
(approx. 100 AD?) by the apostle John.
​                      ("Cannon" - meaning what books belonged in the Bible) 

                 c. Wresting (torturing) the scriptures

                      Peter wrote to the 1st. Century Church that "there were false prophets also among the people, 
                      even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily  shall bring in damnable 
                      heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them 
(1Cor.6:20, 1Peter.1:18-20) and bring upon 
                      themselves swift destruction." 
(2Peter.2:1) Peter writes, these false prophets (who were
                      unlearned and unstable) and teachers were "wresting (torturing)
[58] the  

                d. Certain men crept in (stealthily) unawares
                      Jude warned that "there are certain men crept in (stealthily[25]) unawares, who were
                      before of 
old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God
                      into lasciviousness, 
and denying the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ." (Jude.1:4-5) 
                      A "form" of godliness 
(grace) but denying the power" (2Tim.3:5) of the blood of Christ by
                      questioning His Deity!

                     Note: Your protect is the "unction from the Holy One"

                      John writes, "Little children, it is the last time: (even in the 1st. Cent.) and as ye have heard that 
                      antichrist[64] shall come, even now (in the 1st. Cent.) are there many antichrists; whereby we know 
                      that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, 
                      they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made 
                      manifest that they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye 
                      know all things." 
(1John.2:18-20; 26-27)

           2. It is crucial what you believe about Christ's Deity and Resurrection

                  Your Salvation depends on it! If we confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus (that He is Deity / God
                 manifest in the flesh)
(Acts.2:1-36,Note:v.36, John.7:39) and believe in our heart that God hath  
              raised him
(bodily) from the dead, we will be saved.

              Note: If I don't believe and confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and His resurrection from the
                dead, then I am not saved and I will spend eternity in the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
(Rev.20:1-15, Phil.4:7, Rev.3:5) (Review: PHASE 10) Our eternity is determined by how I believe God's
                 Word. (Note: This example in

​                 Ask yourself this question, "who is the one that wants to create doubt concerning the Lord
​                 Jesus and His bodily resurrection?" (It is the dragon, old serpent, the devil, and Satan
     a. Confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus

                     This is a statement of Deity.
[67]The apostle Peter on the day of Pentecost received this revelation
                     from God that Jesus now is "The Lord Jesus." This is because He was resurrected and now
                     glorified with the glory with the Father's own self, which He (Jesus, the Word) had before the world
(John.17:1-26, Note:v.5) The Baptism in the Holy Ghost confirms this! (John.7:37-39; 14:1-16;

                  b. That God hath raised him (bodily) from the dead

                       A Statement of Deity.[67] In the context of the Bible when you go from the verse to the
                     chapter, from the chapter to the book, and the book to the Testament and the Testament to entire
[66] Christ being raised from the dead, is bodily raised from the dead! When the apostle wrote
                     by the "inspiration of God"
(2Tim.3:16-17), that "God hath raised him (Jesus) from the dead, he was
                     saying that God has raised Jesus Bodily from the dead.
 (Matt.28:1-7, Mark.16:1-5,10 Luke.24:1-2,
2, Mark.16:9, John.20:11-17, 1Cor.15:4, Matt.28:8-15, Psa.16:10, 1Cor.15:5, Luke.24:34,
                       Mark.16:12-13, Luke.24:13-35, John.20:19-25, Mark.16:14-18, John.20:26-29, Matt.16-20, John.21:1-
                       24,6, 1Cor.15:6-7, Mark.16:19 -20, Luke.24:50-53, Acts.1:4-9; 4:2; 4:33, 24:21, Rom.1:4, Heb.6:2,
​                       1Peter.3:21)

                     The same is true when he wrote to the Corinthian Church. "how say some among you that there is
                     no (bodily) resurrection of the dead?...if there be no (bodily) resurrection of the dead, then is
                     Christ not (bodily) risen: And if Christ be not risen, (bodily) then is our preaching vain, and your
                  faith is also vain. 
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God
                     that he raised up Christ: (bodily) whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. (bodily)

                     For if the dead rise not, (bodily) then is not Christ raised: (bodily) And if Christ be not raised,
                     (bodily) your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep (have
                     died) in Christ are perished.
(1Cor.15:1-52, Note:v.16-19)

                  There are eternal consequences to denying Christ rose bodily

                  c. Without Christ's blood, Deity and Resurrection you are dead in your sin!

                    (1) No atonement without the blood
                           For "the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make    
 atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul." 
                            Lev.17:11-12, Heb.9:1-28, Note:v.22)

                    (2) The only atonement is in the "precious blood of Christ"
                           Forasmuch "as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and
from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; (Note:
                             Exod.30::11-16; 38:25, Lev.27:3)
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb
                           without blemish and without spot."

                    (3) To say in Him we have redemption leaves a question?
                           Do I have redemption through my good works, or how much offering do I put in the      
or if  I financed the new Church building, or if I dedicate myself to some cause,    
                           or "if  I  bestow all 
my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned" 
(1Cor.13:3) or do something good for my fellow man.

    B. God said, "I will hasten (watch over) my Word to perform it" 

            God has entrusted His Word to His QUALIFIED Priesthood / The Church 
(Num.1:47-54; 3:38-39, 
             1Peter.2:5-9, Rev.1:6; 5:10) 
to guard, copy, teach His Word. (Deut.17:18; 24:8, 2Chron.15:3; 24:15, Nh.7:62-
             65; 8:2, Mal.2:7) 
Would God who is Sovereign,[61] Providential[62] and never slumbers of sleeps,[65] allow-
            ing some scribe to make a mistake
[63] about  the Deity and bodily resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ?    
            Of course NOT!
(1Sam.3:19, Matt.5:17-19; 24:35, 1Peter.1:25, Isa.55:11)

          They said "We deplore any recasting of text." If an alteration was made, it would be in the

          Christ's Redeeming Blood, Deity and Resurrection.
