Every Word of GOD

 

Today, reply is on translating the Bible into English and other languages. “Faith comes by hearing” means by comprehending, understanding, and properly fitting together the spirit content shared from divinity, rather than by reacting to noises or sounds from speech and utterance. GOD is not the author of confusion. The Bible is a collection and full library made up from fragments and original manuscripts written using multiple ancient languages (e.g., Aramaic, Babylonian, Hebrew, Greek, Latin), describing multiple appearances on earth by the pattern of priesthood in heaven, and documenting multiple covenant agreements and relationships between divinity and mankind from various regions and territories (e.g., Canaan, Judea, Macedonia, Syria), from different government documents and officials as well as from multiple sacred writers (e.g., apostles, evangelists, priests, prophets). The ancient materials must be handled carefully because they are delicate and easily damaged. Preserving the physical artifact is important; however, more important is continuing their admonition, authority, guidance, instruction, sacred law, spirit content, and prophetic vision imparted from divinity. It is written: Ecclesiastes 12: 10-14, King James Version (KJV): 10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth. 11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. 12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Did Jesus Christ speak English?

If Not, then Why do we consider the Bible written in English to be the word of God rather than the word of the translators?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: 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. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22: 18-21, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: The Kingdom Within You (09/26/2019); According To Your Faith (08/15/2019); The Word From GOD (12/11/2018); GOD Appearing As Word (01/14/2016); From Cover to Cover? (01/04/2016); Unclear Scriptures? (03/18/2014); Needing Guns To Serve? (03/19/2014); Translation, Please… (01/11/2013); Why So Much Murder? (01/12/2013)

 

Me and myself”, developing Christian believers are encouraged to think of the Bible as the word “from” GOD proclaimed using apostles, elders (patriarchs), heads of tribes, judges, kings, prophets, and other anointed spokespersons, rather than academicians, politicians, professors, “thought leaders,” and translators. The letter and specific wording of sacred messages, teachings, and visions can be discrete, and separate from the spirit content that they convey and project using the exact same words. Those who serve as scribes and translators for the holy writings, are not chosen on the basis of their scholastic achievement, professional reputation, and secular knowledge. They are chosen on the basis of their sacred knowledge, spiritual anointing, commitment, discernment, experience, and maturity. They must be disciplined, give attention to detail, and obey strict rules for the work, because within a manuscript (we say, the text) many subtleties will appear (barely visible differences; sudden shifts in intent, meaning, quality, and value). Also, many of the decisions made for interpretations and what finally will be presented must be agreed upon through a process like that of “peer review.”

Because GOD is a spirit, human communication with GOD, for GOD, and about GOD must contain and deposit into others aspects of the same spirit substances that are fitted together as divine fullness (we say, the makeup of GOD; the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit). Included are faith, forbearance, holiness, joy, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, wisdom, and wrath against sin. Among mankind, language, audible speech, use of utterance, and expressing emotions and thoughts with gestures, movements, and words are human tools that allow agreement, influence on the emotional and intellectual content of others, shared focus on material objects, and social interaction.

Properly understood, the achievements of Bible translators are accomplished through operations of the Holy Spirit. Being diffuse, immaterial, and without physical form, divinity can operate within the consciousness and self-will (willpower) of created beings and living creatures, and exists within the living as life essence (we say, breath; spirit; word). Where the Bible is presented in translation that uses different languages, forms of expression and meaning equal to the original direction, focus, texture, tone and the various aspects of spirit must be acknowledged and embodied so that the presence and substance of divinity to be imparted is preserved, and is not altered or changed. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Marty Goetz:

1. Proverbs 30: 5-6, King James Version (KJV): 5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

2. John 6: 63, KJV: 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

3. Revelation 21: 5-8, KJV: 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=se9uQrCQAe8.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
