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:

at the past to help us today as we look to the future!
Books to us are written by Paul
Written during the book of Acts
- His epistles are to the Gentiles completely
Rightly dividing means to follow Paul
and his writings - all starting with Paul - not verse choosing!
Jews could believe as well, but they
Paul dealt with
Jews, the law, circumcision vs uncircumcision, God's dealing with the Jews,
in early ministry,
Jews were present
to the Jews during the Tribulation
Hebrews - Jude
KJB is not in Chronological Order, but
it is in Dispensational Order
Testimonies of his ministry
- I Corinthians
- II Corinthians / Romans
- while in prison - Ephesians / Colossians / Philippians
after prison -
I, II Timothy, Titus
Paul had met
with Christ face to face!
- the story of his beginnings!
22:1-21 - his
personal testimony to the Jews
personal testimony to King Agrippa
verses to show us, as Gentiles, that we are to follow Paul as he shows
us the ways of the Risen Christ!
- But none of these things move me, neither
count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with
joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify
the gospel of the grace of God.
- But I certify you, brethren, that
the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received
it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
15:8 - And last of all he was seen of me
also, as of one born out of due time.
up to verse 12)
- For this cause I Paul, the prisoner
of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation
of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation
he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby,
when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)...
Acts 9:15 -
the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me,
to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
- For so hath the Lord commanded
us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest
be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
- But rise, and stand upon thy feet:
for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister
and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things
in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people,
and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,To open their eyes, and
to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God,
that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which
are sanctified by faith that is in me. Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was
not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: But shewed first unto them of
Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and
then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works
meet for repentance.
- Be it known therefore unto you, that
the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear
it. And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great
reasoning among themselves. And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired
house, and received all that came in unto him, Preaching the kingdom of
God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with
all confidence, no man forbidding him.
- For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch
as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means
I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some
- Now to him that is of power to stablish
you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according
to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world
began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets,
according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all
nations for the obedience of faith:
3:10 - According to the grace of God which
is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation,
and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth
4:16,17 - Wherefore I beseech you, be ye
followers of me. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is
my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance
of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.
- And for me, that utterance may be given
unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of
the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak
boldly, as I ought to speak.
3:17 - Brethren, be followers together
of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
4:9 - Those things, which ye have both
learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace
shall be with you.
2:1,2 - For I would that ye knew what great
conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have
not seen my face in the flesh; That their hearts might be comforted, being
knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding,
to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of
Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
1:5,6 - For our gospel came not unto you
in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance;
as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. And ye became
followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction,
with joy of the Holy Ghost:
4:1,2 - Furthermore then we beseech you,
brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of
us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and
more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
2:15 - Therefore, brethren, stand fast,
and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or
3:7-9 - For yourselves know how ye ought
to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; Neither
did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail
night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: Not because
we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow
I Timothy 1:15,16
- This is a faithful saying, and worthy
of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me
first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to
them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
1:8-11 - Be not thou therefore ashamed
of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker
of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath
saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ
Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing
of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought
life and immortality to light through the gospel: Whereunto I am appointed
a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
2:7 - Consider what I say; and the Lord
give thee understanding in all things.
4:16,17 - At my first answer no man stood
with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to
their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened
me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles
might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
