Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book:
“Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book…….if anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
Revelations 22:10, 18-19
What was denied to us of our true existence and truth about life is now beginning to be revealed. “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.( John 8:31, 32)”.
Great shifts of consciousness:
“Great shifts of consciousness are happening out there in the field, and felt deeply within our very cells too. A Great Realignment is taking place, that evolving people are experiencing in every aspect of their lives: in relationships, careers and general living circumstances. Everything is of consciousness, and so as we emerge from the old paradigm, the very fabric upon which our lives have been founded is unravelling. As we process karma, it can often feel like being pulled through the eye of a needle, as first you contract into the density, and then emerge gloriously out the other side………things will get intense out there. We’re passing through the Inflexion Point between the old paradigm and the new.” https://wakeup-world.com/2021/12/24/enlightenment-you-are-the-one-the-universe-is-moving-within-you/
“The deeper you are rooted in yourself and the more connected you are to your soul, the greater your understanding of cosmic connections and how you can live more easily and harmoniously………..This is the greatest and most beautiful challenge: to unite mankind to purify, protect and preserve the earth as the jewel of divine order.”
Peter B. Meyer
“..you are in the most intense period of energetic and frequency adjustment humanity has ever experienced.”
“The great master said this 2000 years ago; “Know thyself and thou shalt be healed”… Use your innate powers! You can do this and much more!”
Do not withhold good:
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so…” Proverbs 3:27
“He who walks with integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will become known.” Proverbs 10:9
“The hope of the righteous will be gladness, but the expectations of the wicked will perish.
……the wicked will not inherit the Earth.” Proverbs 10: 28,30
“…the wicked will fall by his own wickedness.” Proverbs 11:5
“God is Love.”
““God is Love.” …….it does not matter what you name it, what image you project on it, the real God is Love…….between the 21st and January 7th there would be a great outpouring of love. Love is the manifesting force behind creation, those who create from fear will experience the manifestation of those fears yet it will be amplified and accelerated. Those coming from love in service to others will receive a profound blessing. Those coming from fear in self service that seek power over others will create some profound lessons. The energy coming in will amplify and accelerate everything including karma. It will uncover what is hidden, the masks will come down and you will see people and their actions for what they are, not what they mislead and portray them to be. This is already well underway yet there will be waves of energy exponentially getting stronger in the days to come. Some waves are timed with other natural and religious events where people’s hearts are more open and receptive. Between the 21st and the 7th is one of these times………..there is a solution and that solution is coming on high, activating people of impeccable integrity, those in service to humanity and the Earth in every walk of life.
The people are rising. The prophecy that all the iniquities will be shouted from the rooftops and no rock shall be left unturned is rapidly being fulfilled. The days of tyranny, unbridled greed and lust for power are coming to a close. The enslavement of humanity through manufactured lack and planned obsolescence, ill gained profit at the expense of humanity and the Earth is also coming to a close. This includes the hijacking of environmental movements. All those who violate Universal Law will be held accountable. Neither they, their actions or their kingdoms will continue. They are not frequency specific with the planetary liberation, the awakening and healing of humanity and the Earth which is well underway. The chaos is the healing, everything is surfacing, being made known, the masks and false appearances are coming down. Idols are falling, leaders are falling, icons are falling, their empires are crumbling, it is unavoidable…..”
“…..without Prime Source Creators orders and support to transform humanity from the muck and quagmire of the evil that really controlled this planet for thousands of years, the transformation just would not have happened……
This is just not about getting all the bad people, this transformation to a more spiritual and collective consciousness, called unity consciousness. This is just not the old “change of leadership” or using military force. This is the most important part that is going on for humanity. This is evolution for humanity in the universe, where inside each human being, we become one with God, through our soul or “Heart Mind” to where we want and understand God’s natural laws, and follow them All people are very willing to live in “Heaven on Earth” and in total bliss! This is unity consciousness through the quantum realm.
………….“divide up the real bible or leave parts out, keep scholars arguing”. The old “conquer and divide” method. Add in the human ego; wanting power, money, & control in there, what we have is a religious mess throughout our history. We do know the Vatican would not release 777 chapters or books of the bible to help solve some real issues………….”
Where is the original Bible?:
“Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar. (Proverbs 30:5-6)
In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, this word came from the Lord: “Thus says the Lord: Stand in the court of the Lord‘s house, and speak to all the cities of Judah that come to worship in the house of the Lord all the words that I command you to speak to them; do not hold back a word. It may be they will listen, and every one turn from his evil way, that I may relent of the disaster that I intend to do to them because of their evil deeds. (Jeremiah 26:1-3)
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:18-19)” https://disciplesofhope.wordpress.com/2015/02/27/bible-verses-which-warn-about-tampering-with-the-word-of-god/

“divide up the real bible or leave parts out, keep scholars arguing”:
“divide up the real bible or leave parts out, keep scholars arguing” Mark Baughman
“….the Bible, both before and after the 1611 edition of the King James Version – its first printing – has changed many times. The KJV has also been changed, revised in matters of text, punctuation, and content….historical fact. For example, in 1611 when the first edition of the KJV appeared the English alphabet did not contain the letter j, and the name of Jesus was rendered Iesus, with subsequent editions later changing it to the more modern appearance. J did not appear as distinct from I in the English language until 1633. Here are other examples of how the Bible has changed over time…..
1. Early editions of the KJV were filled with typographical discrepancies
About 200 editions of what are known as the Great He Bibles are known to exist in the 21st century. The Bibles contain title pages for both Testaments which are dated 1611. Though in some instances the actual books of the Old Testament were printed in 1613. More than 350 typographical errors appear in the text, one of the most famous being in the Book of Ruth. In those in which the Old Testament was printed in 1611, in the book of Ruth, the test reads, in reference to Boaz, “he measured sixe measures of barley and laide it on her, and he went into the citie” (Ruth 3.15). The second use of the pronoun he is incorrect; it refers to Ruth going into the city, rather than Boaz, and should have read she. Editions printed in 1613 corrected the error.
The two editions are known as the Great He Bibles for those which indicate Boaz went into the city, and the Great She Bibles for those which have Ruth making the journey. According to some Hebrew scholars, the error is not typographical at all, they cite that the original Hebrew text translates as he, and the translators, in order to change the context of the passage to place Ruth in the city, as the story seems to require, deliberately changed the pronoun in the Bishop’s Bible, which preceded the KJV. So whether Ruth or Boaz entered the city is the subject of debate among Bible scholars, a controversy which begins with the first and second editions of the King James Version of the Hebrew Bible, in which the text was clearly changed, whether deliberately or not.
2. ….The King James Version of the Bible was translated from Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and Aramaic by committees made up of 47 scholars, all but one member of the clergy of the Church of England. They were divided into six committees, each assigned a section of the Bible to translate (for example, the First Westminster Company translated Genesis to 2 Kings)…..The most highly regarded English scholar on the Hebrew language, Hugh Broughton, was not included among the clergy who translated the books of the Hebrew Bible using Tyndale as their guide. When the KJV appeared, Broughton condemned both the method of translation (the translators had rejected a word-for-word approach) and the resulting text. Broughton called the translation “abominable” and protested that the work should not be “foisted upon the English people”. Broughton argued that the KJV was not a translation from the original languages as much as it was an adaptation of the portions of previous translations, focused on contextual changes rather than a faithful reproduction in the English language.
3. The books of the Apocrypha were later removed from many KJV printings
The Roman Catholic Church considers seven books of the Hebrew Bible to be canonical, which are known as the Apocrypha. In the original editions of the King James Bible, the Apocrypha were included, though not as part of either what it designated as the Old and New Testaments. During the English Civil War, of which religion was a major issue, the Westminster Confession established that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, was the written Word of God, infused with infallible truth containing all that is needed for man’s “salvation, faith, and life”. According to the Westminster Confession, the Bible in its original languages contained, “the Holy Spirit speaking in Scripture”.
The books of the Apocrypha, recognized as canonical by the Catholic Church and in many cases quoted or referenced in the Talmud, were excluded from the designation of infallibility and considered cases of human instruction rather than divine guidance. This was despite their inclusion in the earlier editions of the King James Bible………..For many decades they were absent for editions of the KJV entirely, though in more recent times some publishers have included them again, in a manner similar to the early editions of the King James Version.
4. Numerous differing versions of the King James Bible existed by the 18th century………..
5. …………The original 1611 editions of the King James Version contained errors, as seen in the He and She Bibles, as well as many others. Some of the errors were due to the desire to maintain a consistent appearance of the text in columns, and led to inconsistent use of contractions, spellings, and other issues. Careless printing also led to errors, including the infamous omission of the word not in an edition which became known as the Wicked Bible, which exhorted its readers “Thou shalt commit adultery”. By the 1620s there were over 1,500 errors of printing in editions of the Authorized Version, and an attempt was made in two revisions at Cambridge to correct them in 1629 and again in 1638……….people who were not educated in the ancient languages of Latin and Greek.
6. ….Between the years 1700 and 1800 the English language, its spelling and its grammatical construction, changed measurably, and printers of the Authorized Version, more frequently referred to during the century as the King James Version, altered the text and the spelling in the bibles they produced. Their motives for doing so were not religious in nature but were rather aimed at making the books they printed more readily accessible to their readers.
…..In the 1611 edition of the King James Version, the translators had written, “and the glorious appearing of God, and our Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13). Parris removed the comma, combining God and Jesus in the sentence in accordance with the Trinitarian concept of the Westminster Confession. The change remained in subsequent editions of the Cambridge revision, and in the Oxford edition of 1769.
7. The Oxford edition of the King James Version of 1769 is the basis of most printings today
By the time Benjamin Blayney edited the work which became the Oxford edition of the King James Version, the work of the original translators had been altered and amended by scholars and printers for more than a century and a half. Much of the work which appeared (and appears) in the Oxford edition is verbatim from the Cambridge edition, including the changes of punctuation which subtly changed the context of the text.……Blayney’s Oxford edition, like that of the original translators in 1611, included the Apocrypha, though many of the cross references to the Apocrypha, included in the original translation, were removed, signifying further that the books were not considered scriptural. More than 24,000 changes, many of them standardizing spelling or adjustments to punctuation, exist between Blayney’s 1769 Oxford edition and the 1611 edition produced by 47 scholars and clergymen.
8. ….Over the next one hundred years, and for many up to and including the present day, the Oxford edition of 1769 is the definitive Protestant Bible, though it too changed over time. Gradually, editions were printed without including the Apocrypha, and references and notes concerning the Apocryphal books vanished with them. Still other Bibles appeared, and inconsistencies and contradictions which occurred within and between editions led to scholarly debate…..Both Blayney in 1769, and the editor of the Cambridge Paragraph Bible, Frederick Henry Ambrose Scrivener, took the liberty of altering the texts where they felt the original translators may have been in error, though they used differing documents from some of those used in 1611. Scrivener used an ancient Greek document known as the Textus Receptus, which he compared with another ancient document, the Codex Sinaiticus (Greek manuscripts of the New Testament and about half of the Old Testament), to arrive at conclusions regarding the accuracy of the original translation. Though the King James Version is almost completely unchanged since 1769, developments in the world of archeology and language since have produced many questions regarding its accuracy.
9. Problems with the understanding of ancient languages emerge
During the 19th century several problems arose which raised questions regarding the translations of the ancient languages upon which the King James Version was based. Some of these issues arose from changes in the understanding of Ancient Hebrew, in which a growing awareness of the problem of confusing terms used as descriptions with proper names was present. The inconsistency of translation of Greek into English (due to different text styles) was also revealed, the same Greek words too often appeared in the translation as different English words. The same occurred translating Hebrew into English. For example, the Hebrew word almah is a reference to a young woman of child-bearing age. The word eventually entered the English text as virgin…..
10. ….The translators who produced the first edition of the King James Version in 1611 were given specific instructions regarding aspects of the work. The substitution of words was allowed for the purpose of improving readability. Supplied words, that is, words which were not translations from the original texts but which were added for the purpose of sentence structure were to be presented in a different type face. The procedure was not applied consistently by the companies which worked independently translating different portions of the Bible, and was barely used at all in the New Testament books….It was the translators of the King James Bible who removed Yahweh, which appeared as YHWH (the Tetragrammaton), and replaced it with The LORD, rendered in small capital letters. Where YHWH appeared with the Hebrew Adonai (Lord) the translators presented it as Lord God, again in small capitals. IEHOHAH appeared in four of the Old Testament books, Exodus, Psalms, and twice in Isaiah. The Hebrew books of 1 and 2 Esdras were renamed as Ezra and Nehemiah respectively, a practice adopted from the Geneva Bible rather than the source documents, and 3 and 4 Esdras, which were in the Apocrypha, were renamed 1 and 2 Esdras.
11. The translators did not use original source documents, but rather handwritten copies of them
The translators who produced the original edition of the King James Version had access to some, but by no means all, original source documents to be used as the basis of their new translation. Instead they relied on all previously completed English translations, including some which they had been specifically instructed to ignore, and on printed copies of the Bible in the original languages then available, as well as translations and commentaries written in Spanish, Italian, German, French, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Syrian, and Chaldee. The polyglot of languages led to numerous stories in the Bible undergoing alteration from the originals…..The translators of the King James Version introduced a number of verses which were not contained in either of the previous English translations, nor in the reproductions of the source documents on which they relied, as evidenced by later discoveries of ancient manuscripts. Later translations which omit these verses because they appear to have been written by the King James Version translators, rather than by the ancient writers of the original manuscripts, led to dissension among Bible scholars and defenders of the King James Bible.
12. Many of the verses present in the King James Version are interpolations that do not directly correspond to the ancient texts
In the King James Version of the Bible, in the Gospel of Matthew, verse 18:11 reads, “For the Son of man is come to that which was lost”. The verse does not appear in the most ancient copies of Matthew, and when it does appear the oldest extant sample is after the 5th century. Most scholars believe Matthew to have been written in the 1st century. That it was added later is self-evident. The oldest complete versions of Matthew date to the 4th century, and do not include the verse. The verse, or one very similar, does appear in Luke’s gospel, and was added to Matthew at a later date (Luke 19:10). Subsequent Bible translations often do not include the verse in Matthew, a point of contention among those who consider the King James Version infallible, but also clear evidence that the Bible has been changed over time.
Another frequently omitted verse in more recent translations of the Bible, which rely on the source documentation from the ancient manuscripts rather than later editions of the Bible, comes from Mark. Mark 15:28 in the King James Version reads, “And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, â€˜And he was numbered with the transgressors’.” Besides being similar to another verse in Luke, Mark 15:28 does not appear in any of the manuscripts which appeared before the end of the 6th century. Another verse in Luke, 17:26 is omitted in newer translations and was even questioned by the translators of the King James Version in 1611, who included a note pointing out that the verse was missing in “most of the Greek copies” though they included it anyway.
13. ….Despite the clear records of history and the extant capability of comparing revisions of the King James Bible side-by-side, with the changes easily detectable, there developed a vocal group of supporters who argued that the book remained unchanged through the centuries. In 1930, Benjamin Wilkinson wrote Our Authorized Bible Vindicated. Wilkinson’s thesis was that all other forms of the Bible were corrupt, and that only the King James Version, which he asserted was based on the Textus Receptus, was an accurate English translation of the ancient texts. His work was the basis for the movement which rejects all other translations and revisions of the Bible, the King James Only Movement. Wilkinson asserted in another book, Truth Triumphant, that the editor and compiler of the Textus Receptus was not Erasmus, as history demonstrates, but rather Lucian of Antioch. The theory of Lucian compiling the work which is the basis of the King James Version in Wilkinson’s belief, as well as those who agree with him, has to date no archaeological or historical evidence to support it. Wilkinson wrote in Truth Triumphant that, “Neither Lucian nor Erasmus, but rather the apostles, wrote the Greek New Testament”. In Wilkinson’s view, Lucian safeguarded the Textus Receptus from the corruption of the documents present in his day from being adopted into the text of what was much later the basis of the KJV, thus the KJV is the only version which accurately reflects the true words of the apostles.
14. Changes to the Bible have been a constant throughout history
Comparison of the ancient texts to each other, regardless of language, are easily verifiable proof that the Bible, regardless of the version being considered, has changed over time. Written, edited, and debated by man, the work has been revised for political, historical, and grammatical reasons throughout its existence. When King James commissioned the version which bears his name, he directed the translating committees (which were called companies) to produce a version which reflected the episcopal Anglican Church and its belief in an ordained clergy. The instruction ensured that the resulting bible would differ in many ways from existing versions.
Despite historical, archaeological, and ecclesiastical studies to the contrary, there remain those who believe that Saint Matthew, one of the original twelve apostles, wrote the Gospel of Matthew, with the other apostles writing the gospels bearing their names. All four of the canonical gospels were written anonymously, appearing late in the first century, and the names assigned to them appeared in the second century. Scholars overwhelmingly believe that none were written by eyewitnesses to the ministry of Jesus, and the earliest copies of them reveal that later copies had additional verses added, indicating that what later became the Bible was revised before it was ever translated from Greek.
15. The oldest texts of Mark do not contain verses which appear in the King James Version of the Bible
In the King James Version’s Gospel of Mark, the resurrected Jesus appears to several people, including his closest followers, known as the disciples. In the oldest extant texts of Mark’s gospel, the story of Jesus appearing to the disciples is not present. The chapters of Mark following the Crucifixion were added sometime in the second or third century, what became in the King James Version Mark 16:9-20. These verses of Mark stand as proof of the Bible’s being changed over the years, even some editions of the King James Version note that the verses are of questionable provenance. Some ancient sources which do include the additional verses contain notes questioning their authenticity.
Another ancient manuscript in Greek, known as Codex W, contains the longer version of Mark, with additional verses in the text which were evidently removed in later versions of the gospel. The version contained in Codex W has never been found in any other versions of Mark. Thus one book of the Bible, The Gospel of Mark, exists in at least three versions in the ancient Greek manuscripts, two of which are revisions which took place long before it was ever translated into English. The Gospel of Mark is the oldest of the canonical gospels, and was influential in the writing of those of both Luke and Matthew. Some scholars postulate that the additions to Mark which led to the longer version were made during the second century to make its ending more in line with Luke and Matthew.
16. Many changes to the Bible were made before it was the Bible
Whether one believes that CERN is supernaturally changing the text of the Bible is immaterial when considering the changes made to the ancient source documents. Studies of the Greek documents from the first millennia demonstrate that numerous changes were made over the centuries. When documents were copied laboriously by hand changes of punctuation and errors of omission were all but inevitable. But changes of addition – the insertion of entirely new verses – were not. They were instead placed in the existing text as editorial or creative additions by unknown authors, forever changing the content of the Bible, many of them centuries before the first editions in the English language. An example of one such addition is present in the Gospel of John.
Copies of the Gospel of John, in Greek, reveal that for its first three centuries in existence there was no mention of the tale of Jesus confronting a crowd about to exact justice upon an adulteress by stoning her. In the story Jesus challenges the crowd, telling them for the one among them, if any, initiating the punishment by casting the first stone. When the crowd disperses Jesus too tells the woman that he will not condemn her. The story is among the most famous verses of the Bible. But it wasn’t in the earliest copies of John’s gospel, appearing more than three hundred years afterward, an insertion by a later copyist. In subsequent ancient texts in Greek, the story appears in a variety of places other than that where it can be currently found, John 7:53 – 8:11.
17. Descriptions of the Crucifixion have also been changed
In the Gospel of Luke, as Jesus was dying upon the cross, he addressed the two criminals being crucified alongside of him, though the version currently appearing in the Bible is at odds with the earliest extant copies of the gospels. Another change in Luke, which does not appear in the early copies of the Gospel attributed to him, is that Jesus asked forgiveness of his executioners, because they did not know what they were doing. The oldest known copies of Luke’s gospel do not recount the forgiveness bequeathed from the cross, the story was added in the fifth century in the Greek documents. As with many additions, it was likely added to reflect the Christian teaching which had evolved by that time.
As has been noted, the translators of preceding Bibles who created the King James Version were under specific instructions from their sovereign to create a work which reflected and supported the dogma of the Church of England. When they referred to existing works, the Geneva Bible for example, they were using versions which had too been written with a particular set of beliefs in mind, Calvinism for example. The same method of translation had already been in place for centuries, with stories moved about, amplified upon, or newly created wholesale by copyists, to reflect the evolution of the Christian beliefs at the time, and to explain why they had evolved as they had. The Bible has not only recently been changed, it has always been subject to change.
The consequences of changing the Bible are clear:
18. The consequences of changing the Bible are clear…
At the end of the Book of Revelation, two verses before the close of the Christian Bible, a warning appears – which is supported by others throughout the Old and New Testaments. It is a warning against altering the words of the Bible. Those who regard the Bible as the literal and immutable word of the Creator ignore a simple literal and immutable fact. The Bible was not written in English. Its characters did not speak English. A polyglot of languages were used to pass down its stories in oral traditions long before they were committed to the page in writing, and when they were it was in several different ancient languages, by several different writers, in different eras of history.
……The King James Version of the Bible includes nine mentions of the mythical animal the unicorn ….The reason the animal appears in that version of the Bible is simply because of mistranslation based on misunderstanding of the Hebrew word re’em, translated into Greek as monokeros (one-horned), then to Latin as unicornis (one-horned) and finally into English by the translators under King James as unicorn.”
Knowledge shall increase in these end times:
“…..prophet Daniel predicted that knowledge shall increase in these end times, these long-hidden secret manipulations are now being finally revealed and exposed publicly! (Daniel 12:4).
….Satan is indeed very clever and wise. Since he wants to effectively deceive the most number of people without any question or opposition, he has obviously used the respected leaders of religion who can simply tell their followers to “just believe by faith” even if things don’t seem right or logical. And knowing that in the Christian world, all believers base their beliefs on the perceived absolute and unquestioned authority of the Bible …..what better way to achieve such massive deception than to corrupt their Bibles in the first place?…..to take full advantage of this very effective “modus operandi” of deception!….
….Christ (Yahshua Messiah) further said in effect that, Satan is the secret evil one who sowed bad seed in the field while men metaphorically slept (Matthew 13:25). Therefore, in his cunning and secret ways, he has worked at all levels and in all area of man’s endeavors…..
The tampering starts in 1 John 5:6 in these translations. Notice the variations in their renderings:
And it is the Spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth. [DRA=Douay-Rheims-Apochrypa]
The Spirit is the one that testifies, and the Spirit is truth. [GNV, NAB]
And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. [ESV, KJV, NAU, NIV, NKJ, YLT]
NOTE: Unlike the stated versions, both the
NAS and the
RSV dropped the last phrase (“because the Spirit is truth”)
out of verse 6, and down into verse 7.
……While the citations from Encyclopedias and other authoritative works are already too numerous to ignore, and really solid enough in its credibility, we can further substantiate and bolster those facts through internal biblical evidence.
- The Catholic Church confesses to adding those words to support the Trinity doctrine.
- Many historians and theologians document that indeed the change was done by the Catholic Church.
- None of the original apostles ever followed the supposed Trinitarian formula of baptism.
- Historical evidence in the New Testament consistently records baptisms in Christ’s name only.
- Eusebius testifies that in the original Matthew version, baptism was in Christ’s name only.
….The common problem is that most people tend to have a myopic view of making a conclusive stand based mostly on a single or a few isolated verses (and ignoring the rest), and the selected verse or verses may just have been a mistake by some translators, or from the translator’s lack of proper knowledge and understanding, or it may even have been an outright manipulation by some to support a certain doctrinal agenda ……However, the Bible itself warns us that we should not add or subtract from what is inspired by God to be written in the Scriptures, and this command is clearly stated in both the Hebrew Writings (Old Testament) and in the Apostolic Writings (New Testament). Not only is there a command against doing that, but there is a severe penalty for such tampering (Deuteronomy 12:32; Revelation 22:18-19).
Let us, therefore, strive to have the keenness of mind, and by God’s help be able to sift the wheat from the tares (which look alike), and be able to rightly divide (discern) the Word of Truth (2 Timothy 2:15).”
“The proof of tampering is in the manuscript evidence. It’s called manuscript variances. It’s where the manuscripts differ from each other. Keep in mind we don’t possess any original manuscript for any text of the Bible. Zip, zilch, nil. So all we have is copies. And when the copies disagree with each other, that can only happen when the copier makes a change to the text, either unintentionally or sometimes intentionally. In anycase the text is no longer the original..its been tampered with. ……and given the existing manuscripts are hundreds of years removed, and even a thousand years in the case of the old testament, from the original, its technically Impossible to ascertain what the original author wrote with certainty. So a best educated guess is all we have. To put some of this in perspective.. for the new testament alone there are more textual variances in the manuscript evidence than there are words in the new testament. Most of those variances are of little consequence, but some are significant. With the discovery of the Dead sea scrolls, we find there were tampering with the Bible text that was theologically motivated. Meaning changes were made to support a given theological point of view. One such instance was Deuteronomy 32:8-9..where sons of God, or gods was changed to sons of Israel. The former text having polytheisistic leanings, so someone felt the bible need changing there and actually the resulting “sons of Israel” reading makes no contextual sense,. Just read it and think it through.”
James Norton, 50 years of study of Christian History and doctrines
Truth exists apart from the Bible:
“The Bible is full of stories, from Genesis clear to Revelation. Entire books of the Bible are dedicated to telling a specific story. Some of these are stories of good triumphing over evil, while others are heartrending stories that tell of death and destruction. Some stories are funny; some are poignant; and some just make you shake your head. ……There is a purpose for the wide variety of stories. Every Bible story has a purpose…” https://lifehopeandtruth.com/bible/bible-study/bible-stories/
“…..books of the Bible into six categories: law, history, wisdom/poetry, prophecy, Gospel and letters. Each must be read and interpreted differently. You don’t read a history textbook the same way you read a book of poetry. One is read as literal truth and the other is an artistic expression. They are both useful and needed, but they communicate through vastly different styles, and they serve different purposes.” https://www.relevantmagazine.com/faith/the-bible-is-true-but/
The TRUTH though is that there are many aspects of the bible that no matter how much has been removed or added or other, there are extraordinary truths within it that cannot be erased or removed. And this has been proven. It takes mastering in studying the bible to confirm this. Although I may not have fully studied the bible, I have attended classes in bible studies. And I have discovered some truths no matter what, cannot ever be removed for there are certain codes that just cannot be tampered with. Fools are those that do try for they do not know what is upon them……………
“For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” Luke 8:17
“and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:32
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14-16
“For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.” / “For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.” / “For nothing is hidden except to be made manifest; nor is anything secret except to come to light.” Mark 4:22
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
“No book is misused, misunderstood or collects more dust than the Bible.”
“Truth exists apart from the Bible. I don’t go to my Bible when I’m trying to repair my car. Why? Because that truth is not in there. That doesn’t make the Bible any less true. It just means that truth exists apart from the Bible.”
“The Power of Nature empowers you”
“Knowledge and Power of Nature
Nature is Creation and Miraculous
Nature itself is our creator, and the creator of many species. Mother nature has all the knowledge because she is able to create everything around us, she is able to create a living system full of different organisms, naturally. She has the power to control many forces, create, destroy, make us evolve. She is our unconditional protector because we exist.” https://www.objetosdepoder.com/nature
And the power of wisdom is within YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who Do I Need To Become:
Who Do I Need To Become – Motivational Video
What do I need to do to get to where I must get to?
What must I do TODAY to become the person I must be tomorrow?
Who do I need to become to get to where I must get to ?
What do I need to do to become who I MUST become ?
One of the most powerful questions you can ask yourself every day…
Every single time you need to make a decision…
What do I want to be proud of tomorrow ?
Who do I want to be tomorrow ?
The guy that quit. .. Or the guy that KEPT GOING.
The guy that took the easy option? Or the guy that went ALL IN
The guy that gave in to temptation. Or the guy that showed DISCIPLINE.
Discipline because The hard work I put in TODAY will be worth it tomorrow.
The DISCIPLINE I show today will be worth it for MANY tomorrows.
The STRONG CHOICES I make TODAY will make me PROUD for many tomorrows!
What must you do TODAY to achieve what you MUST achieve in your future?
What do you need to do to get to where you must get to?
What do you need to learn? Who do you have to become to get the results you MUST HAVE. What do you need to MASTER? What new skill must you obtain?
You will never get to the next level without mastering the skills that the next level requires.
You will not reach any great heights without becoming the person that is capable of reaching those great heights.
It’s easy to take the easy option.
It’s easy to rationalize.
If no one around you is living at a high level,
No one around you is achieving at the highest level. It might seem ok to take it easy.
It’s easy to get in a big, average, miserable rut!
What’s not easy is putting in the work when you don’t feel like it.
What’s not easy is continuing to raise the bar when everyone around you remains the same.
When that little voice inside you is saying
“Don’t be too great, too ambitious, you won’t fit in”
What’s not easy is having massive DREAMS and working for them. Because most people don’t and most people won’t!
What’s not easy is setting your goals so high people actually think you’re insane.
You will NOT get to the top of the mountain by taking the easy road. It’s all up hill. It’s a challenge. A challenge that will build strength. Pride. Courage.
A journey that will build character. Build a stronger human being.
You will NEVER reach any greater heights by remaining the same. You must RISE UP. MAN UP!
Be willing to put in the work required to reach that level . Be willing to do whatever it takes to become that person. That person you know is inside.
What do you want to be remembered for?
Who do you want to be tomorrow?
Who do you want to be in 1 year?
Who do you want to be hanging around?
Who must you become in order to be hanging around those people?
Everyone is looking for the magic wand. The elevator to success. There is no elevator. You must take the stairs.
You must take one step at a time, because each step you take is a new skill, each step you take is new strength, new muscle, each step you take is leading you to a better place.
If you were given all the results you want, right now, without working for it, you would NOT be fulfilled. Because you didn’t earn it. You must earn the success you seek, if you want to feel the pride of victory. You want to feel what it feels like to be a champion? EARN IT.
BECOME THE PERSON that is willing to EARN it. Are you prepared to put in the work to become that person? Are you prepared to invest everything you have in order to become that person!
Are you prepared to SUFFER NOW so you can get to that place in the future! If you are going to get to the top of your own mountain peak you have to push through the pain. You can’t fly up there. You gotta trek. You gotta go through the pain. The struggle.
You will feel like quitting. Most people quit. But you MUST DO THIS. You MUST DO IT FOR YOU. Keep pushing forward. And then, you will have something most people will never have… PRIDE! Pride from knowing that not only you went after your dream, but you PERSEVERED. You showed CHARACTER. You showed COURAGE. And that, sets you apart from the rest. That’s what it’s all about. It’s never about the prize. It’s not the money. It’s the pride… The pride in knowing you gave every ounce of your soul. The pride in knowing you made you. The pride in knowing you made you great. That’s what it’s all about.
Everyone’s looking for the elevator to success. There is no elevator. Take the stairs!
Who do you need to become, to get to where you must get to?
What must you do TODAY to achieve what you MUST achieve in your future?
If you had every wish granted in your life, without limits, what would of be doing?
Who do you need to become to live that life?
Picture it clearly.
How’s your physical health? Your PEAK energy and physical strength.
What do you need to do today to make that a reality in the future.
Every decision today counts.
And think about this for a moment, really take it in:
EVERY DECISION and EVERY ACTION you take in your life matters. It matters, even when you don’t see immediate results.
If every day from this moment forward you commit to training and eating exactly how a professional fitness athlete would do, and do that EVERY DAY, with COMMITMENT and DISCIPLINE, do you think, within a short space of time, you could achieve insane physical health, energy and the greatest body of your life?
Of course. Because every action compounds! Every decision you make in EVERY area of your life adds up.
Every training session goes in the bank, every meal goes in the bank, and that compounds to give you either a powerful result or a DEBT.
You get a financial debt if you spend more than you earn. If you don’t learn more than you spend. If you don’t take action on getting better every day.
You get a physical debt if you don’t train your body to grow stronger.
You get an emotional debt if you don’t expand your mind. If you don’t practice gratitude. If you don’t go after what you really want in life.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want debt in ANY AREA of my life.
I want compound interest to grow!
I want every single action I take TODAY to add up in a positive way tomorrow…. In a way I AM PROUD OF for many tomorrows!!!
I want to look back and be able to say with certainty and truth:
“I MADE IT HERE, because of my decisions!
I MADE IT because of my mental strength!
Because I WORKED even when I didn’t feel like it. Because I SACRIFICED even when no one else did. Because I NEVER GAVE UP, even when no one believed in me.
I BELIEVED it would add up, and IT DID ADD UP.”
I want to live the day when someone will say to me:
“You inspired me!
I saw you REFUSE to give up and now that inspires me to never give up.”
Screw who you were yesterday. That person is gone. What are you going to do TODAY. And who WILL YOU BECOME tomorrow?
