The Animal Kingdom vs. The Bible

The classification of animals is just one more area where science and the Bible don’t agree. I prefer to go with God’s definition and classification of His created beings. After all, God is the one Who created them, so He should be the One Who defines and classifies them.

Google “Animal Classification” and you will get various answers. There are 5 or 6 kingdoms, 7 classifications and 6 groups (which are divided into smaller classes). Yes, I know, it’s confusing. But God is not the author of confusion. His animal classification is simple.

So let’s take a look at the Bible verse that puts the living creatures (flesh) in categories. 1 Corinthians 15:39, “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.” The Bible says there are 4 categories of living creatures: man, animals, fish and birds. Much more simple than the scientific groups ( or classifications, or kingdoms) of differing quantities and definitions.

Let’s look at another verse that has the same 4 categories, and adds another one – creeping things. Ezekiel 38:20, “So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence.”

We’re going to use an example where science and most “scholars” going against the Bible. Scientists and Bible scholars say that Jonah wasn’t swallowed by a whale. They use many excuses to reject the true, inspired word of God. They say a whale couldn’t swallow a man. Their reasoning is based on science and Biblical unbelief. The Bible has a built-in dictionary. Jonah 1:17 says, “Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” Jesus Himself defines exactly what the great fish was. Matthew 12:40 says, “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Jesus defined the “great fish” as a whale. The Bible says God “prepared a great fish.” That fish was a whale.

The Greek Bible scholars state that the Greek word has many definitions. That is true, but the King James translators considered every definition of the Greek words used. They prayed and the Holy Spirit told them to define the Greek word as “whale.” Bible scholars want to flaunt themselves over the word of God and create doubt about God’s word, and to show they know more than the translators of the King James Bible.

God defined a whale as a fish in Genesis. Genesis 1:20-22 says, “And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.” God said that whales are classified with fish. They are not animals (beasts). Whales are fish according to God’s word.

That is why in 1 Timothy 6:20 it says, “science falsely so called.” Go by God’s word and not by anything else. God’s word is 100% truth, unlike science and Bible scholars. Don’t let either one cause you to doubt the pure word of God. Believe God’s word!




The King James Bible

God has perfected His word in the KJV Bible.  It can’t be corrected by anything or anyone.  It corrects everything, including the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts.  If we have to go to the Greek to find the real meaning or tense of the word, we might as well throw the Bible out, because we can’t trust it’s words to be correct as God wanted us to have them.  Proverbs 30:5 says, “Every word of God is pure.”  I believe the verse as it says, that “every word” means every single word, and that every single word is pure!  If every word IS pure, why would I need to go anywhere else to find a different meaning?  I believe the final authority is the King James Bible, not a Greek or Hebrew text. The KJV supersedes the Greek or the Hebrew.  The true meaning of a word is found in the King James Bible.

The scholars who translated the King James Bible knew every definition of every Greek word.  They prayed about which definition God wanted in each instance, and they made their decision by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.  Those who doubt the word of God say that a word could have many meanings (as most Greek words do).  But the King James translators considered each word definition and with the help of their fellow scholars and the Holy Spirit, they made the choice, being led by the Holy Spirit.  Those who know Greek and who try to correct the words they chose, are putting themselves above the translators and above the Holy Spirit, for no other reason than to show how smart they are.

John MacArthur doesn’t believe the Bible he holds in his hand is the 100% pure word of God without error. I’ve read his book, “Why Believe the Bible.” See page 199, E – first paragraph, last line and second paragraph first line. They state, “…the copies we possess are not entirely error free,” “…no translation is or can be perfect.” He’s got the gall to title the book “Why Believe the Bible.” Strange title considering he doesn’t believe it. But he wants to make you think he does.  So why believe the Bible if it’s not perfect and without error? Proverbs 30:5 says, “Every word of God is pure.” MacArthur doesn’t believe that!

The King James translators were Godly men.  Their introduction includes the following: “For when Your Highness had once out of deep judgment apprehended how convenient it was, that out of the Original Sacred Tongues, together with comparing of the labours, both in our own, and other foreign Languages, of many worthy men who went before us, there should be one more exact Translation of the holy Scriptures into the English Tongue.”  They thought there should be one more translation, and an exact one at that.  They would have never thought there would be translations coming out just about every year, like there is now, of which NONE are exact.  The King James translators believed theirs was an exact translation of the Holy Scriptures.  “One more” has the thought of the King James Bible being the last one.  Thus, the King James Authorized version was supposed to be the LAST EXACT Bible.  And to those who believe the King James version, it IS the last exact Bible.

The King James Bible is the inspired final authority and is not to be corrected or updated by anyone or anything, including the Greek text or the Hebrew text.

Psalm 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”  (there’s that word “pure” again)

The King James Bible is the inspired final authority and is not to be corrected by anyone or anything, including any manuscript or scholar, because the King James Bible is the 100% pure, true word of God without any error.


The Water Above the Universe

Here is a short video on the water that Christians must go thru to get to Heaven.  This is an excerpt from the video “Genesis Chapter 1.”


Body, Soul & Spirit

I wrote a new book called BODY, SOUL & SPIRIT.  It’s a detailed description on the makeup of a believer’s being. I searched the Scriptures to see what they say about our person and the three parts of our entity. This book is easy to read and answers many questions a person might have. Once you read this book, you will see how each part of our being works and how they all fit together.

Please share.  Thanks and God bless.

The Wicked Movies in the United States

This is the satanic filth that wicked people in this country watch. It’s, unfortunately, the number one movie this week. America is cursed because of people’s love for cursing (523 curse words!!!).
Psalm 109:17-18, “As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.”
It shows the horrible state of our country and it’s rejection of God and His commandments!!

The Truth About – “By His Stripes We Are Healed”

The two main verses in this Bible study are Isaiah 53:5 and 1 Peter 2:24. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Today there is the popular belief that when the Bible says, “with his stripes we are healed” it is talking about a physical healing. This belief is made popular by Preachers who tell people what they want to hear. These Preachers say that you can be healed if you have enough faith, because your healing has already been purchased by Jesus Christ through His stripes. They tell the people this for different purposes – to keep the people coming, to sell more books, to have bigger offerings. These Preachers teach people to lie by telling them their words have power, and by telling them to believe and speak that they are already healed even when they aren’t.

People will fall for these lies because they want to be healed. The Preachers take advantage of people’s desires and play on them. You’ve heard people say, “In Jesus’ name I don’t have the flu. I am healed” even when they were plainly very sick. They are lying when they talk like that, because the truth is they are NOT healed. Those Preachers are feeding off people’s infirmities, which is very evil in itself, and taking advantage of their desire to be healed. And many people are so desirous to be healed, that they will reach for anything. When a popular Preacher tells them Jesus died for their physical healing, they grasp it like someone who’s drowning grasps a life preserver.

This is Truth From the Book. The truth is, these verses are speaking of a spiritual healing – the healing of our soul. The context is our sins. Notice Isaiah 53:5 speaks of transgressions and iniquities. Isaiah 53:6 says, “the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:8 says, “for the transgression of my people was he stricken.” Transgressions and iniquities are other words for sin. Jesus healed the sin in our soul, taking it away.

When Jesus died for us, He died for our sins. He didn’t die for our physical healing, for if He did, then everyone who gets saved should be immediately healed of any disease or malady they have. Jesus didn’t die for our cancer or heart disease or infectious diseases or neurological disorders. It says He was wounded for our transgressions, our sins. When a person gets saved, he immediately receives eternal life. It is complete a salvation, not a partial salvation. In the same way, if Christ died for our physical healing, when a person gets saved their body would be made whole, not partially but completely. If Christ died for our physical healing, then every sinner who gets saved would be healed immediately. Obviously that doesn’t happen, and the reason that doesn’t happen is because Jesus didn’t die for our physical healing. He died to heal our soul from sin.

Remember, you can learn theology from Hymns. There are Hymns that speak of healing, but it is the healing of the soul, not the body. Here are a couple:

No Not One
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
No, not one! No, not one!
None else could heal all our soul’s diseases,
No, not one! No, not one!

Jesus, Lover of My Soul
Plenteous grace with Thee is found,
Grace to cover all my sin;
Let the healing streams abound;
Make and keep me pure within.

It is only in the last 50 years or so that this belief, that Jesus died for our physical healing, has been propagated by many Preachers. There is NO evidence that this belief was the norm in previous generations. So let’s take a look at Bible Commentaries down through the ages. Notice how all these Commentaries speak about the healing of our soul from sin and despair.

Commentaries on 1 Peter 2:24
Adam Clarke’s Commentary
“By whose stripes ye were healed. The apostle refers here to Isaiah 53:4-6;
and he still keeps the case of these persecuted servants in view, and
encourages them to suffer patiently by the example of Christ, who was
buffeted and scourged, and who bore all this that the deep and inveterate
wounds, inflicted on their souls by sin, might be healed.”

Matthew Henry’s Commentary
“Christ’s death was designed not only for an example of patience under sufferings, but he bore our sins; he bore the punishment of them, and thereby satisfied Divine justice. Hereby he takes them away from us. The fruits of Christ’s sufferings are the death of sin, and a new holy life of righteousness; for both which we have an example, and powerful motives, and ability to perform also, from the death and resurrection of Christ. And our justification; Christ was bruised and crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, and by his stripes the diseases of our souls are cured.”

Pulpit Commentary
“They were to learn patience of him, and to remember to their comfort that those stripes which he, the holy Son of God, condescended to suffer are to them that believe healing and salvation. Faith in the crucified Savior lifts the Christian out of the sickness of sin into the health of righteousness.”

Gill’s Exposition of the Bible
“Sin is a disease, a natural and hereditary one, an epidemic distemper, that reaches to all men, and to all the powers and faculties of their souls, and members of their bodies; and which is nauseous and loathsome, and in itself mortal and incurable; nor can it be healed by any creature, or anything that a creature can do. Christ is the only physician, and his blood the balm and sovereign medicine; this cleanses from all sin; through it is the remission of sin, which is meant by healing; for healing of diseases, and forgiving iniquities, is one and the same thing.”

Benson Commentary
“By whose stripes ye were healed — Of your spiritual disorders: evils infinitely greater than any which the cruelty of the severest masters can bring upon you.“

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
“The idea seems to be that the Saviour was scourged or whipped; and that the effect on us is the same in producing spiritual healing, or in recovering us from our faults, as if we had been scourged ourselves. By faith we see the bruises inflicted on him, the black and blue spots made by beating; we remember that they were on account of our sins. Ye were healed – Sin is often spoken of as a disease, and redemption from it as a restoration from a deadly malady.”

Commentaries on Isaiah 53:5
Gill’s Exposition of the Bible
“and with his stripes we are healed. Sin is a disease belonging to all men, a natural, hereditary, nauseous, and incurable one. Forgiving sin is a healing of this disease; and this is to be had, and in no other way, than through the stripes and wounds, the blood and sacrifice, of the Son of God. Christ is a wonderful physician; he heals by taking the sicknesses of his people upon himself, by bearing their sins, and being wounded and bruised for them, and by his enduring blows, and suffering death itself for them.”

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible
“We are healed – literally, it is healed to us; or healing has happened to us. The healing here referred to, is spiritual healing, or healing from sin. Pardon of sin, and restoration to the favor of God, are not unfrequently represented as an act of healing. The figure is derived from the fact that awakened and convicted sinners are often represented as crushed, broken, bruised by the weight of their transgressions, and the removal of the load of sin is represented as an act of healing. ‘I said, O Lord, be merciful unto me; heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee,’ Psalm 41:4. ‘Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed,’ Psalm 6:2. ‘Who forgiveth all thine, iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases,’ Psalm 103:3. The idea here is, that the Messiah would be scourged; and that it would be by that scourging that health would be imparted to our souls.”

It is clear that when the Bible says by His stripes we are healed, it is NOT talking about a physical healing, but a spiritual healing. The healing of our soul. The truth is, there are no verses that tell us Jesus died for our physical maladies. Jesus died for our sins.

Now let me make clear.  I do believe in physical healing.  I believe Jesus heals today.  I believe in the power of prayer that can move God to heal someone.  I believe in miraculous healings.  I believe that we can anoint someone and pray over them for a healing.  But I do not believe that Jesus died for our physical healings.  If we are healed, then His stripes did contribute to that healing.

God bless.

Here is a video on the three kinds of people who came to King David in the cave Adullam. David is a type of Christ, and as such, these three kinds of people are those who come to Jesus Christ.

Israel and the Jewish People

Here is a short Bible study on the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. Israel is God’s chosen nation out of all the nations on the earth. The Jews are God’s chosen people out of all the peoples of the earth. Without the Jews we would not have the Bible or salvation. Salvation is of the Jews, but we Gentiles now have the salvation that was given to the Jews only, thanks to Jesus Christ, Who broke down the wall of partition.
