To Understand the King James 1611 Bible
This is a series of sermons for folks who think the King James Bible
is confusing, contradictory and archaic.
The KJB is not only the easiest bible to read, it is the easiest to
The KJB is God's Holy Scriptures and is the ONLY Holy Scripture!
Here is how it can be so simply understood:

Looking back at
the past to help us today as we look to the future!
In Time Past - But Now - In the
Ages to Come
For our learning, etc.
10:11 - Now all these things happened
unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon
whom the ends of the world are come.
To understand that verse, read verses
FOR us but not
Genesis 1; Ephesians 3:9; Colossians 1:16; John 1:1
- Genesis 7-9
Three Races out
into the world - Genesis 9-10
Abram - Jews /
Gentiles separated! - Genesis 12
- Now we know that what things
soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every
mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
in Holy of Holies
- bulls, goats, etc.
If proper sacrifices
made, then on to Paradise - Abraham's' Bosom at one's death.
To get out after
Jesus' blood shed.
Ends with Jeconiah
- type of Anti christ
Daniel - Prophecy
speaking for God
speaking for God
and wonders to the Jews - in order to believe, they had to see
and those didn't
Justified by their
Law for the Schoolmaster
So much to learn
from the Old Testament!
However, it is
not for our example; only our ensample!
example - to imitate
- one to follow
ensample - to
learn from, but not to copy
History of Jesus to the Jews, in preparation
for the Gentiles later!
Still considered Old Testament in doctrine
For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of
the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise
it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.
The time that God was manifest in the
I Timothy 3:16
- And without controversy great
is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in
the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in
the world, received up into glory.
Deity of Christ
- the great issue even today!
I Timothy 3:16
The clearest verse
in the Bible proclaiming that Jesus Christ was God. The King James Bible
reading is humanized with the
NIV: "HE appeared in a body".
The NIV twists
to "HE". "HE appeared in a body"?
So What? Everyone
has "appeared in a body"! "He" is a pronoun that refers to a noun
There is no antecedent
in the context!
does NOT even make sense!
2:6 - The
KJB again, clearly declares the deity of Jesus Christ: "Who,
being in the form of God, thought it not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD"
The NIV reads,
"Who, being in very nature God, DID NOT CONSIDER EQUALITY WITH GOD something
to be grasped,".
The NIV again
subtilty perverts the deity of Jesus Christ!
They are doing
what Romans 1:23
says - And changed the glory of the
uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man,
The issue for
the Gospel time!
Was Jesus the
Son of God - their Messiah - the Christ, God, etc.?
- And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou
art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed
that I came out from God. I came forth from the Father, and am come into
the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father. His disciples
said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any
man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
Acts 8:37 -
And Philip 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.
- 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, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting
Father, The Prince of Peace.
- Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on
this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they
came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
This King James
Bible - an identical issue today - is it the very word - words - of GOD?
The mouth of God?
Face to face with
Jesus came to fulfil the law
- Think not that I am come to destroy the
law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
They were told
not to go to the Gentiles - yet!
These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into
the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
A Gentile woman
refused by Jesus
But he answered her not a word.
he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house
came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread,
and to cast it to dogs.
but only up to this point!
is Jesus' closing prayer concerning his completed mission on earth!
Corinthians 15:1-8 - vs 3,4 - For I delivered
unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died
for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that
he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
The command to
The action of
miracles, signs and wonders done by the apostles.
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship,
and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in
the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive
the gift of the Holy Ghost.

- Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted
out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
... the boldness of Peter and John
And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among
- And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders
and miracles among the people.
they kill Stephen
7:51-54 - Ye
stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the
Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not
your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of
the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and
murderers: Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and
have not kept it. When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart,
and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
