Do not confuse our photographic facsimiles with small, cheap, “reprints” you may have seen. The popular Thomas Nelson or Hendrickson Publishers “1611 Edition” mass-marketed Bible, for example, is NOT a true facsimile (nor do they claim it is). It is a totally new type setting in a strange semi-modern Roman Style Type Face without the original woodcut decorative accents or beautiful Gothic Black-letter Style Typeface found in the original. Such reprints may maintain the ancient spellings, but they do not LOOK anything like an original 1611.

 If you are looking for a beautiful, affordable, authentic copy of the original 1611 King James Bible to use as a desk-reference or bookshelf-reference piece (like a dictionary)…then this is the Bible for you. Our 1611 facsimile makes the perfect Christmas Gift. You may even wish to purchase one of the gorgeous 1611 King James Bible for yourself and one for a Christmas gift. This Edition Facsimile Reproduction of the 1611 First Edition King James Bible measures approximately 11 inches tall by 8.75 inches wide by 3.5 inches thick, and weighs about 10 pounds. (So actually… it’s fairly large and heavy book).

 The binding is hardcover black imitation leather with gold stamping along the spine. Each page was computer-scanned from the original, and printed on heavy cream paper. In a much more manageable “medium-folio” size, rather than the original “giant pulpit folio” size, it remains otherwise an exact photographic duplicate of the very first press run of world’s most beloved book. Most people have never seen what the original King James Bible looks like, and having one in your home will provide you with a great conversation-piece, and an object of great beauty.

 The 1611 King James Bible was written more than four hundred years ago when the English language was different. The original 1611 A.D. text, written in Early Modern English, shows the language with its Latin influence. Spelling was in Jacobean style which was not entirely standardized, but could be read phonetically. The original typeface was in Gothic style. Although both the typestyle and the older language of the 1611 version may be considered difficult to read by some 21st Century English readers, the translators produced an accurate translation known for its beauty, cadence, and poetic feel.

JOHN 3:16 The 1611 original (with Gothic type)
 
For God so loued þ  world, that he gaue his only begotten Sonne:
that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life.
 
JOHN 3:16, a 1900-1970 Cambridge Edition of King James Bible (based on 1769 version)
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 
English spelling differences in John 3:16

U = V (Example: loued = loved; gaue = gave)

y with ‘e’ above it was used as represent the ‘thorn’ character, which means ‘the’)
nn (Sonne = Son)

Other spelling differences

V = U (Example: vnto = unto | See John 1:11. As a variation of the same letter, ‘V’ was used at the beginning of a word and ‘U’ within. )

VV = W (Example: svvord = sword) [The V was called a ‘U’, this is why we still call a W a ‘double U’]

I = J (Example: Iesus = Jesus | See John 1:17)

Long “s” letters look similar to “f” letters (Notice the ‘Old Testament’ type example on the right)

The Modern “Translations” Based on the Corrupt Alexandrian Texts
(NLT, NIV, ESV, HCSB, ISV [Unique Son], NHEB, WEB, etc.)

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

There are two problems here.

1) The so-called modern translations deny the deity (meaning He is not God) of Jesus Christ by removing the begotten.  There are many other places they deny His deity as well.
2) They promote us, man.  We no longer have everlasting life.  We have, eternal life, JUST LIKE GOD!
The WNT or Weymouth New Testament, the YLT or Young’s Literal Translation as well as several others take the corruption even further…in fact, in the opposite direction of the other Modern Versions as mentioned above.
WNT, “For so greatly did God love the world that He gave His only Son,
that every one who trusts in Him may not perish but may have the Life of Ages.”
The WNT:
1) Denies the deity of Jesus Christ.
2) Changes Everlasting to “Life of Ages
YLT, “for God did so love the world, that His Son —
the only begotten — He gave, that every one who is
believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.”
The YLT:
1) “May not.” That does not sound so definite.  WOW.  I hope I have everlasting life.
2) Changes Everlasting to “life age-during.”
Life of Ages?  life age-during?  To be honest, I am not even certain what that means.
There is so much more…please contact me if you are interested in learning more.  In the meantime, stick to God’s Word!  Stick to the KING JAMES VERSION!

The ESV vs. The Bible

Rev. Kevin Airrington
February 9, 2017

The English Standard Version is an updated version of the Revised Standard of the National Council of Churches. The NCC has never been a Christian organization but is a Socialist organization like the World Council of Churches. When you purchase an ESV, you are helping fund the NCC which is another enemy of Christ and true Christians.

What does this mean?  It means we have unsaved men translating the Bible.  The Bible says that the things of God are but foolishness to them who do not know God.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”, 1 Corinthians 1:18

Why in the world would you want a bunch of men translating the Bible who thinks it is foolishness?

You will see that the ESV is just another rewrite of the corrupted manuscripts which underlie every other modern false version. You will also see that the ESV, like the NIV and the Holman Christian Standard Bible have absolute agreement with the Roman Catholic New American Bible and the Jehovah’s Witness New World Translation.

The ESV is based on the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible as found in Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (2nd ed., 1983), and on the Greek text in the 1993 editions of the Greek New Testament (4th corrected ed.), published by the United Bible Societies (UBS), and Novum Testamentum Graece (27th ed.), edited by Nestle and Aland.

(From the ESV official Website)

The Historic Legacy of the ESV

The ESV stands in the classic mainstream of English Bible translations over the past half-millennium. The fountainhead of that stream was William Tyndale’s New Testament of 1526; marking its course were the King James Version of 1611 (KJV), the English Revised Version of 1885 (RV), the American Standard Version of 1901 (ASV), and the Revised Standard Version of 1952 and 1971 (RSV). In that stream, faithfulness to the text and vigorous pursuit of accuracy were combined with simplicity, beauty, and dignity of expression.

The words and phrases of the ESV grow out of the Tyndale-King James legacy, and most recently out of the RSV, with the 1971 RSV text providing the starting point for the ESV text. Archaic language was brought to current usage and significant corrections were made in the translation of key texts. But throughout, the translators’ goal was to retain the depth of meaning and enduring language that have made their indelible mark on the English-speaking world and have defined the life and doctrine of the church over the last four centuries.

Who killed Goliath?

 

If you are like most of us, clear back to when we were a wee one in Sunday School, we all learned that a Shepard boy named David killed Goliath.  Is that what you believe?  Because that is what I believe.

Let’s see…

2 Samuel 21:19

ESV: “And there was again war with the Philistines at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim, the Bethlehemite, struck down Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.”

NWT: “And war broke out again with the Phi·lisʹtines+ at Gob, and El·haʹnan the son of Jaʹa·re-orʹe·gim the Bethʹle·hem·ite struck down Go·liʹath the Gitʹtite, whose spear had a shaft like the beam of loom workers.”

NAB: “There was another battle with the Philistines, in Gob, and Elhanan, son of Jair from Bethlehem, killed Goliath of Gath, whose spear shaft was like a weaver’s beam.”

KJB: “And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.”

Wait, which is it?  Did David kill Goliath or did Elhanan kill Goliath?  Let’s see if we might sort this.

1 Samuel 17:50

ESV: “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. There was no sword in the hand of David.”

NWT: “So David prevailed over the Phi·lisʹtine with a sling and a stone; he struck down the Phi·lisʹtine and put him to death, though there was no sword in David’s hand.”

NAB: “Thus David triumphed over the Philistine with sling and stone; he struck the Philistine dead, and did it without a sword in his hand.”

KJB: “So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.”

WOW!  1 Samuel 17:50 they ALL agree.  David killed Goliath.   However, the ESV, NWT and the NAB all say that Elhanan killed Goliath.  You know what we call that?  A contradiction!  People say, “I cannot trust the Bible because there are too many contradictions.”  And, they are right, the so-called modern translations are loaded with errors and contradictions.  If, I am being honest, I don’t trust the modern translations.  How can I?  How can you?

Now, let me ask you, how is it that the King James Bible gets it right?  I have a confession.  If you notice in the KJB the words ‘the brother of ‘are in italics.  In fact, throughout the King James Bible you will find italics in many versus.  What are these italics?  Are you sitting down?  The King James Bible adds italics to correct the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Koine Greek.  I hear you, “I KNEW IT!  The King James just willy nilly adds words here and there…all you King James people be cursed!”

Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”  (See also, Deuteronomy 12:32 and Revelation 22:18)

But, is it true?  Did the 54 men that translated the King James Bible, really add to the Bible?  The answer is YES!  The King James corrects the original with English!  Now, before you stop reading, let me show you something.  FIRST!  These 54 men did not just add words willy nilly.  They did not at words just for the sake of making things look correct.  They pulled the truth from somewhere else in the Bible.

Turn to 1 Chronicles 20:5 in your Bible…any Bible…

This is just a second account of the same battle in 1st & 2nd Samuel…

KJB:” And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver’s beam.”

Notice anything?  1 Chronicles 20:5 there are NO ITALICS!   And we have Elhanan slewing the BROTHER OF GOLIATH…this is where they got it.  They didn’t add to God’s Word…they moved a word or two around that made sense…

Look at Exodus 8:21 in the KJB, “Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.”

Then look at Exodus 8:22,24,29,31.

Every time you see the word flies in Exodus 8 it is in italics.

Why not a swarm of bees? Why not a swarm of mosquitos?  How can the translators of the King James Bible be so sure?

In Psalm 78:45 it says, “He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.”  Chapter 78 talks about the plagues of Egypt.  And notice something about v.45 and the word flies?  There are NO ITALICS.

Serious?  Those 544 men must have been really smart…what about the translation committee of the ESV?  FOOLS!

 

 

The King James verse will come first with the tampered portion underlined. 

Keep in mind here, we could substitute nearly any one of the 350+modern translations.  They are ALL riddles with errors, omissions, and contradictions.  Some worse than others.

You might say, “Why are we comparing them to the KJB, who says the KJB is the only accurate one?”  Great question.  The King James Bible was translated from 5309 manuscripts.  Some as large as a book, some as small as a scrap of paper.  All 5309, agree 100%, except for some spellings of names, etc.  For example, you might see Peter or you might see Petre.  In 1947, an incredible discover was made in the Qumran Caves or better known as the Dead Sea scrolls.  This brought our text forward 1000 years and it lined up perfect with the KJB.

In 2 Timothy 3:16 we read, “ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”  God’s Word is inspired.

Is God able to preserve His Word just as He promised?

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever (Psalm 12:6-7).

What a POWERFUL scripture!  Is God able to keep His Word?  Is He able to Preserve His Word?  Because I tell you, if His Word is inspired and it will endure forever, then it cannot be found in all 350+ Bibles…why?  Because they are all different!

The Modern Translations are translated from 3 manuscripts.  Wait 3?  Yes, 3 and they are filled with contradictions and errors.

My money is on the King James.  The King James Bible is the Inspired, Infallible, Preserved Word of God!

Galatians 3:17
KJB:
And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

ESV: This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
NWT: Further, I say this: As to the covenant previously validated by God, the law that has come into being four hundred and thirty years later does not invalidate it, so as to abolish the promise.
NAB: My point is this: a covenant formally ratified by God is not set aside as invalid by any law that came into being four hundred and thirty years later, nor is its promise nullified.

Ephesians 3:9
KJB:

IF THE PREACHER WONT DO IT I WILL 

Rev. Kevin R. Airrington
January 30, 2017

Sin is sin and sin bites…u repentant sin will send you straight to Hell.  There is simple no such thing as a little boy saved

A little bit pregnant…get the point?  Either you love Jesus…you have been forgiven and you are on your way to Heaven or you are playing church…you continue in your sin and he’ll awaits you!

This is the truth my beloved.   They is no such thing as a white lie…there is no such thing as taking something that does not belong to you and saying you will pay them Tuesday…there is no such thing as I don’t hate them I just don’t care for them…and on and on.

Hell is real…unrepentant sinners will have everlasting life in this place of torment and suffering.

The devil is a liar and a deceiver…”yeah hath God said….” Did He?   Well hold on you …i don’t trust you…so ima checking.

This the Bible calls judgement is coming faster than we think…and if we don’t make haste boy will it all be a waste!

Satan fooled a naive woman…a woman of some wisdom for she lived on this earth some 100 years…he also fooled a man…a man too week…too focused on the physical beauty…the warmth of her body next to his clouded his mine…

But why?  Listen…Adam quite possibly was the smartest man to have ever lived.  I have given this a lot of thought…

First he came from God Almighty!

El Gibbor – THE MIGHTY GOD – Is a 9:6

El Haggdol – THE GREAT GOD – Deut 10:17

El Hannora – THE AWESOME GOD – Neh. 9:32

El Vegas – ONE GOD – Mal 2:10

El Olam – THE EVERLASTING GOD – Gen 21:33, Ps 90:1-3, 93:2, Isa 26:4

El De’Ot – THE GOD OF KNOWLEDGE – 1 Sam 2:3

Gen 1:17 & 2:7 ADAM WAS MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE! He formed him from the dust of the ground and then breathed the breath of life into his nostrils and he became a living soul.  THE NESHAMA CHAIYIM – THE BREATH OF THE SPIRIT LIVES.

God created Adam & Eve fully functioning young adults.  They were not tossed in the garden of Eden with their diapers on and a bag of seeds and given instructions they could not understand.

First day…they could:

1) communicate- complex language skills

2) name all the animals

3) no what sex was

4) Adam did not see God make Eve…but he trusted God.

So this man, Adam…who came straight from ELOHIM (Gen 1:1Gen 2:7).  Had a brain full of wisdom and knowledge…yet for a brief moment sex, lust and the beauty becomes his ELOHIM!  It becomes his idol.  It would not be for sometime later that GOD would write in a rock with his very own finger, “THOU SHALL NOT HAVE ANY OTHER gods BEFORE ME!”

The very first commandment!  As intelligent as Adam was…he was still able to destroy the very first commandment – even before it was written down.

There punishment?  God throws the man & the woman out of the garden of Eden…and send angels with flaming swords to keep them out!

Sin will keep you from Heaven.  SIN EATS AT YOU LIKE A MAGOT EATING STINKING ROTTING FLESH!

Sin does not care if you are the smartest man on the planet or the most beautiful. It will find you…it will do its work on you and ultimately sweetheart you WILL pay the ultimate price!

But all I did was smoke a 🚬.  Yes, that’s all you did.  All Adam did was choose the beauty of his drop dead gorgeous wife over God all MIGHTY.  All Adam did was blow his testimony in front of his wife…all the while a stinking snake in a clever disguise of deception and deceit laughed and carried on knowing that Adam was one step closer to hell.

Was it with it?  Thrown from paradise? WAS IT WORTH IT?  Well all I did was…all I said was…

Is it a sin to cause your brother to stumble?

1 Thess 5:22

Rom 14:1-23

Col 2:8

1 Pet 5:8

Ga 5:13

1 Cor 8:9,13

Matt 18:16

Mark 9:42

Luke 17:1-14

STOP IT!  STOP IT! STOP IT!

IF YOUR PREACHER WONT TELL YOU I WILL!

YEAH HATH GOD SAID

Rev. Kevin R. Airrington
January 30, 2017

This is important…PLEASE hear this.  SATAN KEEPS TRYING HIS HARDEST TO DESTROY OUR FAITH IN HIS WORD.

AFTER THOUSANDS OF YEARS HE FINALLY FOUND A WAY TO DO IT WITH THE HELP OF MEN.

PLEASE HEAR ME.  HOW DOES SATAN DO THIS?  By pushing the lie that. “The Bible has to be fixed!” and whispering”yea, hath God said?” By pretending that there is something wrong with the Bible every time they don’t understand a Bible verse!

He is too proud to say, “I don’t know how this goes. but this is how I think it goes. And if we are still not sure, I will ask Kevin or some other.”

Instead, without one shred of evidence he will lie and say that it is probably corrupted by the translation.”

NEVER FALL FOR IT!  GODS WORD IS TRUE…GOD IS ALL POWEFUL … HE IS OMNIPOTENT…HE IS ABLE TO INSPIRE AND HE IS ABLE TO KEEP EVERY PROMISE…HE DID PRESERVE EVERY WORD.  There cannot be 300 Bibles…there just cannot…if there is, God is a liar…He cannot keep His promises.   I just cannot and I refuse to accept that.

Gods WORD is true…and He did keep His promise.  The KJB is Gods WORD persevered.

I love you Lord…thank you for keeping your Word.

FRIEND, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE WORDS….”YEA HATH GOD SAID.”

Satan will use MAN to corrupt GOD’S Word…for no other purpose but to get you to doubt GOD’S Word.

Don’t ever doubt GOD’S Word…the King James Bible is GOD’S Word preserved in English.

AMERICA FIRST

Pastor Kevin R. Airrington
June 22, 2016

I AM SO SICK OF THIS…I gotta say it!

We need to declare war on the Muslim Religion!   AMERICA was founded on CHRISTIAN principles. I get it, “religious freedom”…but let me make this is plain as possible.
THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO GOD AND HIS SON WAS TO THE FOUNDING FATHERS!
Yes, I understand there may have been some that may have been “less of a Christian” than others…but even Benjamin Franklin, probably the least Christian of all of them…quoted the Bible like the Son of God!  What’s your excuse, Christian?

Our founding documents are riddled with godly influence and the Holy Bible! Show me one statement that came from the unholy Quran? Do that and I will fall on my sword this instant.

And yes, I am aware of Spellberg’s book about Islam and the Founding Fathers.  She asserts that the Founders dealt with the same fears of Islam as we have today but they understood it.  She quotes:

[He] sais “neither Pagan nor Mahamedan [Muslim] nor Jew ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the Commonwealth because of his religion.” Thomas Jefferson, [quoting John Locke, 1776]”

Serious?  I am supposed to read that statement and believe Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd President of the United States embraced Islam?  She is a LIAR…and besides this is Jefferson quoting John Locke.  And who is this “John Locke” anyway?  Mr. Lock was an Englishman…he was a doctor and a philosopher.  He is conserved to be the “Father of Liberalism”.  Is claim to fame was RELIGIOUS TOLORANCE.  In his letters on the subject three arguments come to light: (1) Earthly judges, the state in particular, and human beings generally, cannot dependably evaluate the truth-claims of competing religious standpoints; (2) Even if they could, enforcing a single “true religion” would not have the desired effect, because belief cannot be compelled by violence; (3) Coercing religious uniformity would lead to more social disorder than allowing diversity.

Yeah…. this John Locke is a freak…and is no doubt burning in a little place we like to call HELL!

Ms. Spellberg…well I think she has a room reserved next to Mr. Locke.  She is a LIAR and she is pushing her own agenda…Google her!  Her book is even a lie.  Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an.  The speculation is she wants us to believe that…Thomas Jefferson had a Qur’an on his night stand…read it every night…faced mecca 5 times daily and prayed to a false god named Allah!  Excuse me?  Toilet paper please!!!  Thomas Jefferson rewrote the Holy Bible not the unholy Qur’an.

She also likes to quote President George Washington…that would be the first President of the United States for all of you history challenged people.  Don’t worry…stick around, I’ll help you.  George Washington hired some workers to work at Mt. Vernon.  Da…that’s where he lived…ok… Washington said that he didn’t care where someone was from as long as they were good workers.  Now, Ms. Spellberg hangs her whole feeble lie on this statement by the First President.  She claimed he tolerated and loved Muslim’s.  No…he said…well let’s look at what he said exactomundo (that’s Kevineese for exactly), “If they are good workmen, they may be of Asia, Africa, or Europe. They may be Mahometans [Muslims], Jews or Christian of an[y] Sect, or they may be Atheists.”

She is a liar and a “stretch artist” …Kevin term.

JESUS called the Pharisees and the Sanhedrin dogs and pigs. he told us in Luke 22:36 to sell our cloak and buy a sword. I am thinking we should NOT be turning the other cheek on this Muslim problem.  We are at war!

Many of you have no idea how Islam got started. Let me tell you that story in a couple sentences.
Abraham, a Hebrew patriarch from whom all Jews and Christians and MUSLIMS trace their descent (Genesis 11:27–25:10), directed by God to leave his own country for another land.
His wife Sarai, was barren and could not have children. Now, God promised Abraham to just HOLD ON…you will be the father of many nations, God tells Abraham. Which…turned out to be true (from a demographic point of view and a religious point of view).
Abraham so desperately wanted a son. Now, how wife Sarai who loved him very much offered her handmaiden, Hagar, so that Abraham could have a son.

Now, listen, Abram (Abram is short for Abraham…like Rob for Robert) and Sarai is the same couple who were about to enter into Egypt, you know…the land of many gods. This is one of only 2 places in the Bible where it is permissible to lie…now, I am not saying we should lie…but to protect your family it may be permissible.

So, Abram tells his wife, “Say, I pray you, that you are my sister: that it may be well with me for your sake; and my soul shall live because of you.”  Hey…I don’t want to die so let’s lie and say you are my sister…if we don’t do that, they will kill me and take you.

Egypt in the Bible…I tell you is what God uses as a bad example…a place of evil.  God even told Israel, “don’t even send your king to Egypt to get a horse.”) Deuteronomy 17:16) Today, over 95% of Egypt’s population of roughly 85 million people are MUSLIM!!!!  About 80 million people follow the teaching of Muhammed the pedophile and his false god Allah!

So, Abram takes up his wife’s foolish offer and he has a child with Hagar.  That was decision number one that is bad for Abram.  He has a son and his name was Ishmael.  For a while everything was hunky dory…but Sarai…really began to hate Hagar.  Then…Sarai has a son, a miracle and his name was Isaac.

To make a long story short…Sarai gives Abram an ultimatum…either they go or I go!  So, mistake number two…Abram hands Hagar some biscuits and beef jerky and a canteen full of water and says…see ya!  Actually, it was not exactly what happened…but that is the gist of it.  Was it a mistake to send them away…yes and no…but understand Abraham was OBEYING God…so it must have been right.  However, kicking them out is what lead to our problems with the nation of Islam!

Isaac…that is the son that God tested Abram and told him to kill his son…and then He provide a ram in the thicket, sparing the young Isaac’s life.  Isaac became the Judeo-Christian faith and Ishmael became the Judeo-Muslim faith.   My personal feelings are Ishmael was dealing with some serious rejection and daddy issues…and he was filled with Satan…and decided to attack his daddy the best way he knew how…HIS FAITH IN GOD.  Isn’t that ALWAYS how it works Christian?  Someone is angry at you…right or wrong and the first thing they do is attack your FAITH IN THE ALMIGHTY!

“Some Christian you are!’  “I want nothing to do with your religion!”  “I thought you were supposed to be a man/woman of God.”  That’s about right isn’t? Although…I know they are usually littered with profanity.  The people that know the least about the Bible launce the worst attacks.

As far as we know Ishmael never saw Abraham again, although he was present at his funeral. (Genesis 25) In Genesis 21, God tells Abram to listen to his wife…and he tells him that his offspring shall be named after his son, Isaac.  God also promises that God will raise another nation under Ishmael. God absolutely kept His promises…in both instances.

Now, here is the kicker…. Hagar…WAS AN EGYPTIAN.  Ding ding ding…bells should be going off in your head…80 million descendants of Ishmael in Egypt today.

We are not the descendants of Ishmael…we are the descendants of Isaac…and both of these nations are at war!  AMERICA was not founded under the rights of every American to practice Islam.  But the rights to practice BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITYEphesians 2:19, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”

We are a religion of turn the other cheek…however, Ishmael and his nation of Islam have declared war on us!  I understand that some of us are soldiers who fight on the front lines, others of us supply the front line with bullets, nourishment and prayer.  Figure out which you are supposed to do and pick up your sword!

Ecclesiastes 3:8 tells us very plainly that there is a time for peace and a time for war and this I assure you is NOT a time for peace.

WHAT ARE WE REALLY FIGHTING?

Mohammed, the founder of Islam who claims to be a direct descendant of Ishmael and Muslims, today, they view themselves as both the physical and the spiritual descendants of Ishmael. And so here you have this story, this incredible event that took place in this child’s life. Two thousand six hundred years after these events took place, a direct descendant of Ishmael named Mohammed birthed forth a new religion into the world. And what does the religion teach? … It teaches God is not a father. God has no Son. And, thirdly, Ishmael, not Isaac, is the heir with regard to the promises of God to the earth. The very things that those issues of rejection and woundedness and brokenness that took place in Ishmael’s life were preserved in that line and two thousand six hundred years later, a man named Mohammed goes into a cave, has an incredibly dark encounter with some sort of spiritual demon. It literally chokes the life out of him to where he feels as though he’s going to die, three times this presence comes over him and it demands of him to recite… On the third time, the words of the Qur’an begin to flow from the mouth of Muhammed.

Mohammed, himself, literally believed that he was demon-possessed. He was suicidal. He was terrified.”

Muhammed is a pedophile in the 10th degree.

Let me quote from two reports in Bukhari.

I m providing the link…not so you can read it and study it…but rather so you can verify what I am saying.  If you are sitting at the doctors and you have an extra 10 minutes…read your Bible not the unholy Quran!

“It is reported from Aisha that she said: The Prophet entered into marriage with me when I was a girl of six … and at the time [of joining his household] I was a girl of nine years of age.”

“Khadijah [first wife of Muhammad] died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed [alone] for two years or so. He married Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consummated [that means he had sex with her] that marriage when she was nine years old.”

I was speaking to a Bernie Saunders lover in the Seattle Airport; the conversation was pleasant enough…but his son told me that “according to their culture Muhammad was not a pedophile.”  Wasn’t a peda…are you kidding me?  SIX YEARS OLD…what does she have to be three to be considered a pedophile?  Disgusting. Muhammad only married widows and divorced women.  He had some 19 wives.  He even claimed that in Heaven Allah married him and Mary.  That’s right, the mother of Jesus.  Muhammad said Mary lived in a beautiful jeweled palace in Paradise next to Khadijah’s, his first wife.

Listen, I know the Muslims love to quote the Holy Bible…and say that young virgins are okay…they often quote 1 Kings 1:1-4.  It is at the end of Kind David’s life…he needed some help…what kind of help…I have no idea…the Bible said that they found a young virgin named Abishag.  The Bible records that David could not keep warm and she laid next to him in bed to keep him warm.  It is clear from the text he did not have sex with her.  And even if they did…it would seem that she was young not 6 years old.  They also like to discuss the most famous marriage in the Bible.  The marriage of Joseph and Mary.  Mary the mother of Jesus and His step-father, Joseph.   We know that Mary was at the “tender” age of 14.  First, I would like to point out that FOURTEEN IS NOT SIX YEARS OLD!  Even in America, we used to marry much younger.  Now we tell them to wait!  Wait until you are 30…when you have a house, 2 cars in the garage and making $100,000. a year. So stupid.  I am not saying marry at 14…but my goodness…we say, “don’t have sex, don’t yank yourself (figure it out), don’t look at porn, practice CLEAN dating and well do all that and wait until you are 30.  Gimme a break!  It’s not working…is it?

Paul said we must control our own bodies in holiness and honor.   He also said that it is better to marry than to burn. Again, I am not saying, “walk your daughter down the aisle at 14!”  But I am saying, “teach them to control their own bodies with holiness and honor…and marry when the time is right for them so that they do not burn with passion…or WORSE!”

Make no mistake, Muslims marry young…they rape…they murder…they terrorize…ALL IN THE NAME OF ALLAH!

Jesus tells us in Matthew 5:39 to not resist an evil person, but to turn the other cheek.

The unholy Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshiping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” (Translation is from the Noble Quran).

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (3:151) – “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. This speaks directly of polytheists, (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be ‘joining companions to Allah’).

What am I saying?  I am saying that Islam comes straight from hell. And we are breading a bunch of wiener dog Christians that wear pink panties…and they in a bunch! We need to raise up soldiers…men and women of God that WILL sell their cloak and buy a sword.  Now, I understand…not all of us are soldiers…I get it.  I may be stupid but I am not dumb er um something like that.  But the LEAST you could do is pray…. the LEAST you can do is read your Bible…the LEAST you can do is tell SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS!

Now, I am about to say something that may shock you!

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and is expected to outstrip Christianity by the end of the century. The number of Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the world’s population from now until 2050.

You JACKASS!  Hee Haw!!!  What in the world are you doing about it Christian?  That means, that millions of people will go to HELL…and it just may be your fault.  This is WAR!  Not a time for tolerance.  Show me where JESUS said we should be tolerant?  I am so sick of hearing about tolerance.  Hell is running rampant…and the Church is silent.  Of course that building you go to gossip and get free food is silent…  but the Church isn’t a building is it?  The Church is people…the Church is you and I!

We need to declare war on the Muslim’s.  Now I am not saying we should not be neighborly.  I don’t care who a man calls god…that is between him and God.  But, I can still be a good neighbor…be a good Christian and show the love of God.

I saw this movie [one free month subscription to about 5000 Christian movies on David A.R. White‘s Pure Flix] once…it was about a Muslim coming to America and staying with a friend of his.  This friend was a “Christian”.  The Christian decided he was going to do all he could to convert his Muslim friend to Christianity.  He worked really hard…he read the Qur’an…and studied all about the Muslim religion.

Every day, 5 times a day the Muslim would pray…although the Christian saw him praying he had other things to do…too busy to pray.  The Christian never missed an opportunity to talk to the Muslim about the cult he was in and how the Qur’an was not real and how the Muslim should become a “Christian”.  One day the Christian is watching TV…and without even looking up at his Muslim friend…he asked him, “Will you go to church with me this Sunday?”  The polite Muslim said, “I might…would you go to Mosque with me?”  The Muslim sat there…and the Christian flipped through the channels on the TV.

Finally, the Muslim could not take it anymore.  He scorns his Christian friend and says, “Are you trying to convert me to your religion?”  The Christian friend stammered and stuttered…had no idea how he should answer.  Then the Muslim said, “How much did you read my Qur’an…and study my religion?”  Again, the Christian had no real answers…and then the Muslim said, “all this time you have been studying me…trying to take me down…trying to convert me…but you were not reading your Holy Bible…you were never praying…why would I convert to Christianity…I just don’t think it is real?”  For the first time the Christian had an answer for his Muslim friend.  He said, “I don’t know!”

This war needs to be fought by Christians reading the Bible (preferably the King James) and praying.  We cannot win this war if you are not equipped to defend the Gospel for the sake of Christ. We cannot win the war if you do not pick up sword and clash steel with the enemy!

The Muslim religion is not a religion of peace.  I don’t care what George W. Bush or Obama says.  They seek to kill and destroy us!  Today they are cutting the heads of Christian school girls!  Not just cutting them off…they are sawing their heads off with knives while they are alive.

It’s time.  It’s time to put America First.  This war cannot be fought or won by secular humanism.  It will need to be fought with the army of the Lord.  The next president whoever he/she is will need to understand that we are in a war.  They will need to attack Islam head on and by God if locking the country down is what we need to do then let’s do it!

I fly to Seattle at least once a year.  It never fails…some 20-year-old Middle Eastern map gets waived through security…while I enjoy a full cavity check.   We don’t want to be offensive.  We want to be respectful…we would never want to stereotype. Seriously?  These are the people killing us…I just cannot imagine King David, General George Washington, General Robert E. Lee, General Stonewall Jackson, General US Grant, General John Pershing or General George Smith Patton not naming and killing the enemy.    We are already at war!  But we have chosen to, one: NOT NAME OUR ENEMY and two: NOT DESTROY OUR ENEMY.  When Moses and the Israelite’s were wondering in the desert for 40 years…they became a mighty army and as they took the promised land…God commanded them to kill everyone: man, woman, child and livestock.

Will you sell your cloak and buy a sword?  Will you stand up for your Christian values or will you cower in a corner and wet your pants?  Will you speak out and destroy our enemy?  Will you not allow Satan a foothold in your city…in your state…in your country?  On this earth.  I know…it’s dangerous.  Tell that to Sam Childers, The Machine Gun Preacher…he is a bad boy of the worst kind…finally, he gives his life to Christ.  Things are still rough for him but a change is taking place in his heart.

He ends up going to Uganda, Africa with some missionaries to put his construction talents to work.  During his visit he befriends a freedom fighter…who takes him on a tour of the village of Yei, Southern Sudan. …smack in the middle of a civil war.  He purchases property right in the middle of that war…everyone told him that it was too dangerous…that he will be killed.  He said, he did not care…that this was going to happen…he started an orphanage for children.  Construction begins…shortly thereafter in the night they find themselves under attack by the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army, a brutal rebel militia that had kidnapped 30 thousand children and murdered hundreds of thousands of villagers.)

They successfully survive and repel the attack.  However, not without loss of innocent life and the orphanage is burnt to the ground…every hut…every building.   He calls his wife, Lynn to tell her what happened.  He says, “It’s too hard”.  This wise, strong woman tells the once tough…now a little soft, made so the children of Sudan tells her husband, “God has called you to greatness…now STOP YOUR CRYING and build it again!”  Pastor Sam puts on his big boy panties and he rescues more kids and rebuilds his orphanage.

In spite of the odds…he stands firm.  In about 2011…he fired an employee.  The list of offenses was long…but one of them was, this employee had sex with someone that worked at the orphanage and got her pregnant.  After the firing the disgruntled former employee bean attacking and lying about the conditions of the children…no food…etc.  Christian Today, took a camera crew and went to see for themselves.  What they found was plenty of food in the kitchen…happy children…and in general good health.  And it’s 2016 and he is still there…taking his ministry into other countries of Africa.

He has fought rebel armies…lies of the devil!  This CHRISTIAN Preacher…may sleep with his Bible and an AK-47 but he truly is in the heart of the devil’s camp. 97% of the Sudanese population adheres to the Muslim religion.  My guess is the nearly 3% remaining are Christians that work for Pastor Sam.

Pastor Sam against all odds…puts a sword to the neck of his enemies.  He stands up to his critiques…will you?  Or are you just another spineless Christian?

One of the ways we can put the sword to the neck of our enemies is to elect Donald Trump to the highest office of the land.   Trump alone understands America.  He understands our enemy and he can do for our economy what he has done in his businesses.  Trump is the only one that wants to build a wall…stop the massive flow of Muslims into our country…he has the only plan to keep us safe!  Look at the terrorist attacks in our country since 9/11.  Say what you will of George W. Bush…but he kept us safe.  Do you think Putin would ever order Russian Fighter Jets to buzz our naval ships in international water if he feared America?  He knows this is no longer the country of the people, by the people and Obama is a joke to him!

I think he both respects Trump and fears him.  Trump is a wild card…unpredictable.  One of the things our enemies have wrote about us in previous wars is…America was unpredictable and lead to them winning the war.

When you are in a firefight…continually move closer to your enemy…he will not expect it and he will see the determination in your eyes…move in close and shoot him dead…in the head!  Don’t misunderstand me…am I promoting a war on Islam with real bullets?  Yes, and no…if it comes to that then yes, ABSOLUTELY.  However, I believe that we can hit them hard through prayer and outspoken soldiers of Christ!  Heaven forbid you DO NOTHING and we wake up and America is 97% Muslim!

I guarantee you that we will win this war…but only if we stand up and we serve God…and fight our enemy.  Make no mistake, the Islam Nation WANTS YOU DEAD!  There is no “Peaceful Muslim Religion!”

That my friends is a fairy tale.  Listen close…when the pundits and the President get on TV and they use the words, Muslim, a peaceful religion.” …grab hold to something a fairy tale will be told.  This is a false religion full of hate and war.  We need to call it what it is!  Start putting America First!

FOOLS

Proverbs 3:6, “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Do not argue with an ass it makes you a fool! IN Numbers 22 in the Bible we read about a man named Balaam. This fella was turned all around backwards going the wrong way. This fool was ignoring God and only wanting to please himself. Sound like anyone you know. Oh uh uh no! Put that finger back…and remember there are four fingers pointing right back at you. This jackass wouldn’t listen so God did something incredible; He spoke to Balaam through his ass. Oh come on really? His donkey…sheeshe. Balaam becomes furiously angry at his ass. Balaam argued with his ass and finally nearly beat it to death. Then, just in time to save the ass’s live Balaam FINALLY Realized it was the Almighty trying to speak to him. God’s purpose was to set Balaam back on the right path.

When we are hell-bent on on going our own way…when we are on a self-destruction path sometimes God will go to extraordinary means to get our attention Sometimes He may use our finances to jolt us into reality and send us in the right direction or he may bless us with a rebellious child. Our first impulse may be to get angry and beat the messenger, but this may be foolish my friend. Perhaps, taking the time to listen to God and seeking His guidance just might be the way to go.

Is God trying to get your attention to keep you from making a fool of yourself? Take time to listen and He’ll change your course and get you where you need to go.

HAPPY ATHEIST DAY!

Psalm 14:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”

INNER PEACE

Rev. Kevin R. Airrington
Isaiah 25:4

With all the unrest in the world today, in this Presidential Race and certainly I am feeling a storm brewing in my personal life I think that today is a good day to draw on that peace that surpasses all understanding.

Friends, ultimate peace is not the absence of storms, but inner peace in the middle of the storm. Hear me this morning, you will never find lasting inner peace until you find peace with God. You will find peace in spite of life’s storms when you surrender to God.

Have you found that peace? I hope that you will. Knowing Christ as your Lord is the beginning of the peace that surpasses all understanding.

MEMORIZE Philippians 4:7, “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

TRUTH

Rev. Kevin R. Airrington

Does it offend thee when I speak the truth?

Good. It is supposed to offend you…that is how you know you don’t have it.

“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” Jeremiah 23:29

Now, who is TRUTH? Jesus said that He was. John 14:6. By His very nature He is offensive. And that’s how you know you don’t have Him.

THE BIBLE

Rev. Kevin Airrington

Who among you can say will all honesty that you are a Christian?
Who among you can say with absolute honesty that you love the Bible?
Who among you can say with absolute honesty that you are a Christian and you love the Bible and can say you read it every day?

The truth of the matter is if you are truly a Christian you will read your Bible daily and you will do one other thing. Can any of you guess the second without hesitation? If you are a true Christian you will read the Bible and you will pray!!! If you do not…you are NOT a Christian.

“KEVIN, DON’T JUDGE ME!” Here we go again. Not going to go into that…except to read my essay called, “JUDGING AMY!” Which, in all honesty…needs to be updated…but the truth has never changed,,,just may need to add a little more.

Okay…stop being so serious…here are some fun facts you can impress your friends at the next birthday party…maybe you can make it into a drinking game! Doh! Did I just say that?

I sure did…perhaps if you won’t read your Bible or your won’t pray…then you can turn able trivia into a drinking game…hey, “faith cometh through hearing and hearing through the Word of God.” Okay…that is a Bible Scripture…(Romans 10:17)…and while you are at it…try this one one too: (Isaiah 55:11)…Can you cut n paste that one?

Okay…now the fun stuff:

When I say BIBLE…I mean…THE BIBLE…the one we read in English…the King James Bible or Authorized Bible. I am not referring to the modern mistranslations: i.e.; NIV, ASV, NASV, NASB, NLT, ESV, TM, TLB, NWT, etc.

You will want to get my new book…soon to be out on Hardback: HISTORY OF THE BIBLE.

Now, I will make reference to some English Bibles (and yes, there were plenty before the 1611 Bible)…but I will name the specifically. If I mention a bible instead of the Bible (Notice the BIG B and little b? That is deliberate) …I will name it…but just so there are NO MISUNDERSTANDING…I am referring to the 1611 Authorized Version…you know…The Bible. smile emoticon

Wow…I keep saying..”FUN” so lets get to the fun!

The Bible is actually a library of 66 books, written by 44 authors over a period of about 1500 years. The 39 books of the Old Testament were composed between 1400 and 400 B.C., the 27 books of the New Testament between A.D. 50 and A.D. 100. (Not CE and BCE…sheesh).

When the Bible was first written, there were no chapters or verses as today. In fact, many of the early, handwritten manuscripts were written without spaces between the words! Stephen Langton divided the Bible into chapters about A.D. 1228. The Old Testament was divided into verses by R. Nathan in A.D. 1448, and Robert Stephanus divided the New Testament into verses in A.D. 1551. The first complete Bible with chapter and verse divisions was the Geneva Bible of A.D. 1560.

THE BIBLE IS HISTORICALLY ACCURATE:

here were several secular historians who wrote about the events of the New Testament at the same time the Bible was being written. Josephus is the most well-known of them. He was a Jewish historian. Tacitus was a Roman historian who would have no benefit from not telling the truth. Both these men, as well as others, can be used to back up the historical accuracy of the Bible.

There are historical discoveries regularly coming to light that continue to support the accuracy of the Bible. Merrill Unger, who compiled a Bible dictionary wrote, “Old Testament archeology has rediscovered whole nations, resurrected important peoples, and in a most astonishing manner filled in historical gaps, adding immeasurably to the knowledge of Biblical backgrounds.”

NUMBER ONE BEST SELLER:

Historically it has been said that the Bible is the most sold book of all time. It is regularly on various best seller lists.

The Bible has been translated into more than 1,200 languages.

THE BIBLE NEVER CONTRADICTS ITSELF:

Think about that for just a second. First, that is just not me saying it…that is just not being hopeful…people devote their life to finding contradictions.

Yes, nothing…and considering these statistics:

66 books, written by 44 authors over a period of about 1500 years. How in the world did 44 Kings, Queens, Tent Makers, Tax Collectors, Pastors, Apostles, Evangelists, Shepards, a Doctor, Prime Minsiters and a Royal Cupbearer (Nehemiah). As the Bible was written over such a lengthy span of time, most of the writers did not personally know one another, nor live in the same eras.

So, David couldn’t call Luke and on his cell phone and say, “Luke, what did you get on answer number 27?” And Luke would be able to answer back, “I don’t know if that was Job or Obediah. I’ll tell you what buddy, let me check with John and I will text you later.” Serious! And you might say, “Oh that’s so stupid Kevin, I knew they didn’t have cell pones.” But I bet you didn’t know that Luke would not be able to look it up on the Internet! smile emoticon

See I told you this would be fun!

By the way…okay…now this may not be fun…and you may not want me to say it…but I think it MUST be said.

While it is true…there is not a SINGLE contradiction in the Bible…that is the King James Bible…

There are contradictions in these modern bibles.

Here is one…just one. And it is a good one!

The ESV (English Standard Version)..not a Translation per-say…it was a revision of a revision designed to bridge the gap between the NIV (New International Version) and the King James Bible. Their goal was to keep the easy to read NIV (which this is not even true…but this is their words so we go with it)…but the problem is the NIV is not very accurate…even the Zondervan (Publisher of the NIV and the Satanic Bible) folks admit this…and they TRIED to correct it in 2005 and then just 6 years later the NIV encounter another revision in 2011. We can get into those details later…

But the ESV folks wanted a Bible easy to read, “like the NIV” and accurate, “Like the King James Bible”.

So they take the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version), which was a revision of the RSV (Revised Standard Version) which was a Catholic revision of the King James Bible (er, sort of). Which was derived from the ASV (American Standard version) Are you confused? LOL Me too my friend. I go into detail in my book.

So…bottom line:

The ESV…is a version of the bible that was easy to read like the NIV (cough) but maintained the accuracy of the King James version. That part should be clear.

Anyway, the ESV failed…and failed hard!

Let me ask you? Who killed Goliath? Are you sure? Come on…really who killed him? I know I have posted this before…

Was it David? The Shepard…the Harp Player for King Saul or was it Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim that killed Goliath?

According to the ESV, Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim killed Goliath.

Look it up for yourself: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/…

2 Samuel 21:19, ” And there was again war with the Philistines at Gob, and Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim, the Bethlehemite, struck down Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.” (English Standard Version, ESV)

2 Samuel 21:19, “And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.” (King James Bible, KJB)

ESV says that Elhanan killed Goliath. King James Bible says that David Killed Goliath.  The KJB says Elhanan killed Goliath’s brother.  Which is correct?

Let’s see…

1 Samuel 17:50 in the KJB we first learn that David Killed Goliath! Then In the KJB we get a confirmation in 2 Samuel 21:19…Again DAVID KILLED GOLIATH.

The ESV in 1 Samuel 17:50 and the ESV in 2 Samuel 21:19 are in contradiction.

But it is worst than that.

In 1 Chronicles 20:5 the KJB says that Elhanan killed the brother of Goliath and guess what…the ESV in 1 Chronicles 20:5 says that Elhanan killed Lahmi the brother of Goliath.

So in the ESV they have created not one but two contradictions… and there are many other contradictions in the ESV and other bibles.

So when you hear about contradictions in the bible they are EXACTLY RIGHT!!!  However, you will NEVER see a contraction in the Bible!!!

For more…see the chapter in my Hardbound Book: HISTORY OF THE BIBLE in the chapter on contradictions.

That’s Him!

Matthew 11:1-6

In Matthew 11 we find John the Baptist at the lowest moment of his life. He is in Herod’s prison and he has been there for some time. In fact, things go from worse to bad…er…bad to worse or something like that.  After about 16 months of being in jail, John was beheaded. As he sits in that dungeon, Satan has time to introduce doubt into the mind of John concerning the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Isn’t that just like the devil?  COmes at us when we are at our worse.  John begins to question whether or not Jesus is really the Messiah.   You don’t hear too many preachers teaching about this side of John the Baptist…Of course, John had not always doubted! There was a time early in the ministry of our Lord that John was well acquainted with just Who Jesus was, John 1:29; John 3:30.

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

and

He must increase, but I must decrease

Now, there is a little question in His mind. So, John sends his disciples to ask Jesus if He is the messiah or not. Jesus responds by telling John’s disciples to go an tell John that Jesus is healing the sick, raising the dead and preaching the Gospel to sinners. In other words, Jesus is telling John, “I’m Him!

I want you to know that there are times when I can sympathize with John. Surely, we all entertain doubts every now and then. If it were possible, I would like to go to John this and have him take a little trip with me.  If I could, I would take John to some places and show him some things about Jesus. When I had done that I can almost hear John saying now, “That’s Him! That’s Him!“. Well, I can’t take John to those places, but you and I can go.  If you are willing, come with me, I want to take you on a little trip and show you some truths about Jesus that should leave us all saying, “That’s Him!

  1. THAT’S HIM IN CREATION

(Let’s go back To The Beginning)

Jesus quoted from Genesis probably more than any other book of the Bible.

  1. His Presence In Creation – (Genesis 1:1)
  2. His Power In Creation – (Colossians 1:16; John 1:10)
  3. His Purpose In Creation – (Genesis 1:26)
  4. That’s Him In Creation
  5. THAT’S HIM IN THE CRADLE

(Let’s go Back To BethlehemLuke 2:1-10)

  1. The Mystery Of His Birth – (John 1:1, 14; Philippians 2:5-8)
  2. The Ministry Of His Birth – (Matthew 1:21; Luke 19:10; Matthew 20:28)
  3. The Majesty Of His Birth – (Philippians 2:5-8)
  4. That’s Him In Creation
  5. That’s Him In The Manger

III. THAT’S HIM IN CONTROL

(Let’s travel to the worst moments in human history)

  1. He Controls Disaster – (John 6:15-21)
  2. He Controls Difficulties – (Ill. Bread – John 6:5-14; Fire – Daniel 3; Lions – Daniel 6)
  3. He Controls Disease – (Matthew 11:5; Luke 4:18 – Jesus healed the blind, the lame, the diseased, the crippled. No disease had the power to stand in the way of His power.)
  4. He Controls Death – (He raised Jairus’ daughter – Luke 8:41-56; He raised the widow’s son – Luke 7:11-16; He raised Lazarus – John 11:43-44) (Ill. He still holds the power over death – John 11:25-26; Revelation 1:18.)
  5. That’s Him In Creation
  6. That’s Him In The Manger

III. That’s Him In Control

  1. THAT’S HIM ON THE CROSS

(Let’s go to war)

  1. His Pain – (Ill. Isaiah 53:4-7; Ill. All He suffered for us!)
  2. His Payment – (I Peter 1:18-19; Revelation 5:9; Revelation 1:5)
  3. His Promise – (Romans 5:6-8; 1 John 2:2; Romabs 10:13; John 6:37)
  4. That’s Him In Creation
  5. That’s Him In The Manager

III. That’s Him In Control

  1. That’s Him On The Cross
  2. THAT’S HIM WEARING THE CROWN

(Ok…get back on the bus and let’s head over to the The Best Day)

  1. His Resurrection – (Matthew 28:1-6; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25)
  2. His Return – (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  3. His Reign – (Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 10:12; Revelation 19:16)

That’s Him!  We have traveled from Manger to Cross, to resurrection and now to glory.  Jesus is everything that the saint or the sinner needs. That’s Him!  Like John and like Thomas (we have not talked about him…but we all know who Thomas is)…we all have a doubt…but Jesus is exactly who He claimed to be.

Them Thomas thrust his hhand in Jesus’ side…and place his finger in His scared hand, he exclaimed, “My Lord and my God!”, John 20:28

Peter answering Jesus’ question, “Who do you say I am?”   … Peter says,  “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Matthew 16:16

Phillip said, “If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God!” Acts  8:37

His enemies declared Him to be God…not a god, but GOD, “The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.John 10:33

Isaiah (Old testament Prophet), “ For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.“, Isaiah 9:6

King David claimed Jesus is Lord, “He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,” Matthew 22:43

The Apostle Paul, “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:Colossians 1:15

Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” John 8:58

Why is this important?  Because God gave Himself the same title when speaking to Moses, “I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.Exodus 3:14

Jesus, and perhaps the most compelling, said, “ I and my Father are one.John 10:30

1 John 5:7, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

John 1:1, 1:14,  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.“, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

THAT’S HIM!

If you are not saved, let me just point out this fact: That’s Him! If you are saved, but need God’s help in your life today, let me remind you: That’s Him!  Whatever you need, wherever you are in your walk of life, all you need to know today is this: That’s Him!

It all comes down to this: If you need as Savior, That’s Him. If you need a friend, that’s Him. If you have a need that must be met: that’s Him. If you need forgiveness, that’s Him. If you want to miss Hell and go to Heaven, that’s Him. Whatever you need: that’s Him!

Jesus is the Living God!  That’s Him and He has the power to save to the uttermost!  (Hebrews 7:25) That’s Him!

Final Conclusion: Who did God the Father say Jesus was? “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.” Hebrews 1:8 THAT’S HIM!
