You never get the truth. The KJV you hold so dear, was translated by Calvinists. Deal with it. These are facts you cannot run away from.No you can't separate between truth and fiction. You only think you can. It is part of the deception of this age. Satan has engineered two great movements for this age that blinds the minds of the simple. They are the Charismatic movement and Calvinism. They are like leaven in a loaf. They work to swell and corrupt. So your claim that people are being enlightened is just evidence that his plan is genius.
Here is some info for you and Roby. Roby, the cult killer, a legend, who is energized by one and don't even know it.
2 Timothy 3:13
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
The above is in the context of the last days of the church.
V 1 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
That is what the great apostle Paul, the apostle to the gentiles said, under inspiration of God, about the last days. It was not I who said it so do not get mad at me for quoting it. We are in a feminized age.
The power that is denied is the "gospel." The gospel is the doctrine of Christ, which includes who he is and what he has done for the world.
The church of Jesus Christ had a beginning and it has an end. These passages I quoted above are about the last days leading up to the end. Here is one about the beginning.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
I know you declare that you believe the bible and you quoted a bunch of translations that you say you believe, but do you believe the plain words here that Jesus Christ is the beginning of the church at his resurrection? Do you believe that Jesus Christ was actually born spiritually at his resurrection like that verse says and he is the first man in history to be born such a way and that we must be born that same way? I doubt that you believe the words of that verse literally.
13 And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. 15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
The Holy Ghost indwelling the body of Jesus Christ at the tomb is what quickened him and the Holy Ghost in the believing Jews at Pentecost and afterwards at the beginning of the formation of the church of Jesus Christ, and the inclusion of the gentiles who believed the gospel though the ministry of Peter 10 years later is what quickened them. The "us" in V 15 are Jews and the "them" are gentiles.
I know we are near the end of the church age when the door will be shut because the doctrines that are preached today and promoted are false doctrines. You would agree with me, I think, if you valued the "words" of scriptures.
Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
I would want to know what the fullness is and could it be that it is the time when gentiles will no longer believe the truth. This makes me wonder if I want to be in the crowd that is swelling in numbers like Mr. Roby seems to think his is doing, especially if the fullness of the gentiles is equivalent to the last days.
2 Tim 4:I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
I am here to exalt our wonderful savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. His word, he says, will not return void. It will save some people but God is not a big tent God. He says only a few will humble themselves and come and be saved. How simple his invitation to come and be saved! Believe his words.
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
For many are called, but few are chosen
Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
120 new translations at the end of the church age has not helped. It has been a hindrance to the truth and purity of the word of God.
It's time to restore things that used to be.
