God's Truth Not Smooth Words

Jesus Spoke of No Other

A Law of Blessings

I was a Texas bank lender some years ago,

an enjoyed and prosperous forte;

but, when Holy Spirit convinced me of God’s Truth,

to Him “No” wasn’t what I would say.

 

He’d taught me ev’ry word about the fourth Precept,

showing Sabbath as the seventh day.

“It is Sunday,” man has taught; yet it’s Saturday,

and of no other day did Christ say.

 

What shall I do, I mused, for I work Saturdays,

I thought in self-commiseration.

Still, Holy Spirit was firm that it be obeyed;

so, six weeks was my resignation.

 

I didn’t know then why God would put me in law,

where fair’s not a consideration;

but, that was my next two valued arrangements

and teaching the next resignation;

 

For then I moved to Washington where jobs came, too;

each one allowing Sabbath for me.

Why? Because I told them my pref’rence before hired:

“not ashamed” of God’s whole Word in me.

 

Soon, I learned that Sabbath is a Law of blessings:

though not yet job hunting, jobs found me!

“Cursed are those who don’t obey; blessed are they who do.”

Each day, see blessings fall upon me.

Jesus Spoke of No Other

Did not Paul say, “Do not fall short of Christ’s promise

by not obeying God’s Sabbath rest?”

Christ’s gospel was preached to both the Jews and Gentiles,

but some lacked faith and failed our Lord’s test.

 

“Those of us who believe do obey God’s fourth Law,

who first spoke it in Genesis Two,

making holy the seventh day for all to rest;

then, Psalm Ninety-Five speaks His wrath true.

 

“Those who do not obey will reap God’s deadly ire;

judged as unbelievers, they will pay.

Father set a specific time of rest for all,

and His Son spoke of no other day.

 

“Hence, the seventh one is for a righteous people:

a break from their work, just as God rests,

not one setting an example of unbelief.

So, desire to pass these easy tests.

 

“God discerns thoughts and hearts and judges compliance.

Let your faith witness be true and strong,

that you may come boldly before the throne of grace

to obtain mercy for all past wrongs.

 

“God is quick to command, His Word as powerful,

like a two-edged sword but much sharper.

Know that He can slay both your body and spirit:

trust, obey, and be not a carper.”

*Note: in other Bible versions v.8 names a prophet instead of Jesus,and in some the word ‘seventh’ has been twice deleted in v.4— such changes and deletions distort God’s  truth. See also: Exodus 20:8-11; Ezekiel 20:12,19-20; Luke 4:14-16; Acts 13:42,44; 17:2; Romans 3:23-25

  1. Thank you so much, KJV, for your words of wisdom. What most people don’t realize is that were it not for the King James’ translation, the preaching of the truth one more time could not have taken place as prophecied in Revelation. Because of this translation, the Bible was made available to every person who wanted one, and the “preaching again” began with the Phildelphia church age: right on time.

    Therefore and as I have pointed out many times, the Authorized King James’ translation was by divine inspiration every bit as much as the entire Bible was written by divine inspiration. Only God can make things happen when they are supposed to happen and not one minute too early or too late.

    Now, we are in the last church age of Laodicea and one would think no one has their own Bible, for all they study it and compare it to what they hear spewing from the world’s pulpits. God has me warn, yet so pitifully few heed and time is fast running out.

    Love in Christ,

  2. The Bible is under attack from all sides. Satan knows it tells the truth about him, the victory that Jesus had at the cross, and what will happen in the future. As such, Satan has and still is making every attempt to destroy the Word of God. What better way to do this, than to change the meaning of the Bible over time with different bible versions; each version as it comes along claiming it is the truth and the most accurate of all the versions up until that point.

    The line must be drawn where we say, “If the King James Bible was good enough for 400 years, then it is still good enough for me.” For by it men and women have been saved and the knowledge of God imparted unto them. When new bible versions come along, they always take something away that is never replaced, only to be lost forever. If you believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, then stand up for it. Take a stand and speak out against these new bible versions. An objection often raised against the “King James Only Crowd” is that people learn something from the other (modern) versions, too, and that some even get saved: but I dare say that this occurs in spite of these errant versions, not because of them!

    The Authorized Version of 1611, or, in other words, the King James Bible, stands alone in its uniqueness, integrity, and fidelity to the truthfulness of God’s Word. Among reasons why this writer holds this conviction is because of the great harm done not only to the Word of God, but the detriment wrought in the local church in its public worship, and, of course, because of the confusion created in countless group and individual Bible studies. After all, it could be said: How do you think your professor would think or feel if all of his students used different textbooks in his class?! In our case, God is our Great Professor! He alone is the one true God, who has walked among us upon this earth and left us the living and enduring legacy of His Word and His Spirit. Until He comes, Amen.

  3. Thank you, both Tom and Jim, for your kind and supportive words. Such keeps me penning for our Lord and putting it out there for His lost sheep.

    Love in Christ,

  4. Very fitting! “The priests used to say that faith can move mountains, and nobody believed them. Today the scientists say that they can level mountains, and nobody doubts them.” Joseph Campbell

  5. Very fitting I think: “God is the inner principle of all movement, the only identity which already fulfils and illuminates the universe. Everything is incorporated in this one principle, because it encloses infinity, it includes everything, and there is nothing that could be outside of it. ” Giordano Bruno

  6. These are both so good. Did you mean for them to be on the same page.

    Never stop proclaiming this message Bonnie. I believe it is God’s truth and the Church as it exists now is deeply deceived and needs to be shaken and awaken.

    I love you sis so much!
