Law and Love Combining

There are those that preach Grace and there are those that preach the Law, but there are few that grasp the Truth as well as Owens and Lorenz in the hymn Give Me the Bible.

Precept and Promise, Law and Love Combining!

2 Timothy 2:19 KJV
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

How can we depart from iniquity without knowledge of the law.

Give me the Bible, Holy message shining; Thy light shall guide me in the narrow way; Precept and promise, law and love combining, Till night shall vanish in eternal day.

When reading the Holy Bible I’ve thought to myself where do I fit in? This is perhaps the wrong way to read the Holy Bible, considering the reader then has to pick and choose which verses may apply to themselves. Context can be key. Is the verse for me or was it a one time statement to Israel at a specific time in history? Maybe even context isn’t crucial if the verse brings encouragement or causes the reader to follow God’s word.

There are two choices for the New Testament follower: Be an Holy Ghost or be a son or daughter of perdition. If we allow the Holy Spirit to indwell in us we sin not and God is with us. 1 John 3:9.

We all have these two choices: continue in sin or be a holy spirit and a son or daughter of God. 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 KJV Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, [18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

It’s All English to Me

Which translators should we trust?

The King James Version Holy Bible was translated under the authority of King James of England. If you read the Bible you likely know Kings are appointed by God.

Daniel 2:20-22 KJV

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: [21] And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: [22] He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

The work of translation is complete in the KJV.

Why do I glorify the KJV? Two reasons. First, I want you to use the KJV as I do. Secondly, many preachers today use statements such as the Greek originally says or other translations say… .

What are they really saying. When preachers say the Greek originally says they are quoting from a supposedly direct translation Greek Bible. Keep in mind this Bible was written by modern translators. Do you want to put your faith in authorized translators or in unauthorized ones?

Some preachers say another translation puts it thusly. What are they saying? They are saying the KJV is insufficient or wrong. It is nothing more than an attempt to sound learned and express mastery of the subject.

Understanding the KJV can be difficult enough without trying to re-translate the Greek and Hebrew, but it is the translation I trust. As a follower of Christ I urge you to do the same.

There are many bible translations available today. I am aware of only one that was authorized by God, the King James Authorized translation.

How do we know this. God appoints Kings and gives them authority. Daniel 2:21, Romans 13:1 I believe it was put into the King’s heart based on reading the KJV preface letter to translate the Holy Bible from the Greek and Hebrew into English for his people.

Not everyone has the authority to create a translation, yet we know King James of England did. My faith and study tells me this.

When a preacher wants to contradict the KJV keep in mind they must put their trust in other translators. Some choose their own translation abilities, some choose the work of other men. I choose the learned men, the translators chosen by King James and the Holy Ghost.
