1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Notice what the serpent (Satan according to Revelation 20:2) said to Eve... “HATH GOD SAID?” The fastest way to destroy someone's faith is to cast doubt upon the Word of God.
The International Bible Society (IBS, founded in 1809) was renamed in 2009 to Biblica. In 1968 they formed The Committee On Biblical Translation (CBT), which gave us the New International Version (NIV), first published in 1984. This is the horrible company who produces and owns the copyright to the satanic New International Version (NIV) series. Tragically, the NIV has become the most popular Bible version throughout the world...
The best seller's April 2013 list from the Association for Christian Retail, commonly referred to as the CBA, ranks the NIV, KJV and the NLT as the three leaders, respectively, among the 10 ranked predominantly English Bible translations. Only one non-English translation appears on the list – the American Bible Society's Reina Valera 1960, a popular Spanish Bible.
Standout among the list, however, is the NIV, which has more than 450 million copies in print. The NIV, reportedly the first major translation to depart from the traditional KJV, debuted almost 35 years ago and has become the most read modern English Bible translation, according to Zondervan, one of the leading Christian publishers.

The trustworthy King James Bible is public domain throughout the world, which means that anyone can freely print copies of it. There's no substantial profits in that. This is why unscrupulous companies butcher the Bible, significantly changing its content, so they can copyright it and sell it exclusively, raking in tens-of-billions of dollars in profits (which the Bible calls filthy lucre). 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”
Biblica Have Perverted the Words of the Living God
The International Bible Society (Biblica) are extremely evil people, and I say that kindly, because they have corrupted the Word of God to make money. It is not a light thing to tamper with God's Word. 1st Timothy 6:10a, “For the love of money is the root of all evil.” Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
Biblica have deliberately corrupted the words of the living God. Jeremiah 23:36, “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.”
In an attempt to justify their works of darkness, Biblica openly denies the Word-for-Word inspiration of the Bible...
“Some Christians believe that God dictated the Bible word for word in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, and that the writers were simply secretaries who recorded those words. But there are two big problems with this view.
First of all, as we look at the writing styles of the various human authors, it is clear that their personalities are very much in evidence in what they write. There is no mechanical word-for-word dictation going on here. ...
The second problem with the word-for-word view of inspiration is that many of the Psalms (and other passages) are the cries of imperfect, suffering people, who are voicing their own complaints or praises to God. ... For those reasons many Christians believe that inspiration should be described as thought-for-thought rather than word-for-word. The human writers provide God's message in terms of their own personalities and historical circumstances, and yet they transmit the message fully and exactly as God desired. ...
So we can say that the Bible is a very human book, for we see in it both elegance and lack of polish, both finesse and struggle. But it is a divine book as well, for it is the only book in all the world that is truly "God-breathed".”
SOURCE:Is the Bible inspired? — Biblica
As you've just read for yourself, the folks at Biblica believe that men penned the Bible in their own thoughts. Biblica denies word-for-word inspiration. Well of course they do, because they've changed the Word of God to sell it. Instead, they have chosen to believe in thought-for-thought inspiration, that is, God gave His thoughts to man and then man penned those thoughts in their own words. Using Biblica's faulty reasoning, they could translate the Bible to say anything and justify it. Such reasoning goes 100% contrary to the plainest teachings of Scripture.
God Promised to Preserve His Words Unto All Generations
Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” How does this truth compare with the insane claim by Biblica today that God speaks to us in different ways through the confusion of hundreds of Bible versions? There's no purity in the Bible-corrupting movement. They can't even choose which Bible is God's Word. Since they all say different things, they can't all be God's Word. The Lord promised to preserve His pure words unto all generations.
The ungodly Bible-butchers at Biblica have perverted the words of the living God by changing Psalms 12:6-7, so that it no longer promises that God will preserve His words unto all generations. Instead it refers to people (us). Clearly, you can see how the ungodly men and women at Biblica who translated this horrible work of darkness have completely altered the meaning of God's Word...
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION — 6 And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. 7 You, Lord, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked,
KING JAMES BIBLE— 6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
The subject of the matter is plainly stated in verse 6... “THE WORDS OF THE LORD.” The 54 King James Translators understood this passage to mean God's Words will be preserved unto all generations. I do not believe for one second that it was just a coincidence that Biblica, who are intentionally corrupting the Holy Words of God to make a buck, changed this passage to deny the divine preservation of the Holy Scriptures. The reason why they changed this Bible passage is obvious, because if God did indeed preserve His Word to this modern generation, then there's only one Bible, not hundreds! I believe that preserved and inspired Book to be the King James Bible in the English-speaking language. Read This Carefully All You King James Bible Critics, And Then Read It Again, Prayerfully.
We read in Psalms 12:6-7 that God's Words are as pure as silver purified seven-times in a furnace of earth. That's pure! The process of purifying involves heating the metals to the melting point, so that the lighter metals will float to the top and then you can scoop them off, leaving the heavier metals behind, in this case silver, which is very heavy on the periodic table of elements (an atomic weight of 107). By repeating the process seven times, you end up with very pure silver.
Biblica foolishly changed the element in Psalms 12:6 from silver to gold, no doubt because gold is 50 times more expensive than silver. But wait, there's more! Did you know that silver has the highest conductivity and reflectivity of all the metals, even more than gold? It's true! And did you know that industry experts today tell us that silver is far more valuable than gold, because of it's massive demand throughout industry (for the aforementioned properties), whereas gold is virtually entirely limited to jewelry. And this will shock your socks off... there's five times more gold on planet earth than silver!!! You can read it all here (Note: article may be slow to load - the link was still working fine, but slow, as of February 2016). God knew what He was doing when he choose silver to compare His Holy Word to it, because pure silver is far more practical and useful in what it can do than gold. Likewise, the Word of God is more practical and useful than all the gold in the world.
People idolize gold because of its beauty, but silver is a workhorse that gets the job done. God didn't author the Holy Bible to impress us; but rather, the Bible is brutally honest, getting the job done, telling us the truth as it is, unpolished and plain for all to see. God has kept His promise to preserve His Words unto every generation, not just in the Hebrew and Greek, but also in the English King James Bible. God knew what He was doing, because English is now the fastest growing international language of the End Times.
The Scriptures Are Inspired Word-for-Word
The Scriptures are abundantly clear that every word in the Bible came directly from God. Here is our text verse again from 2nd Peter 1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” God Himself gave His Words, not to holy men of old; but rather, through holy men of old. God literally put His Words into their mouth. Those chosen men of old, which God set apart for His use, were simply PENS.
There are statements made by the Devil in the Bible, such as when Satan tempted Christ in Matthew 4:1-10. Are the words of Satan in the Bible still inspired by God? Yes, absolutely. Hence, just because the various writers of the Bible wrote in their own particular style doesn't mean that those words weren't inspired by God. Nothing was put into the Bible by the will of man. The Bible plainly tells us in 2nd Peter 1:21b, “holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” The Holy Spirit put His exact words into those holy men, which is word-for-word inspiration. Call it robotic or mechanic dictation or whatever you want, but men didn't author the Bible, God did, word-for-word. When Moses penned Satan's words, Moses was writing exactly what God put into his mouth to write.
The Bible teaches that man shall not live by bread (physical food) alone, but by EVERY WORD of God (spiritual food). Therefore, we need an EVERY WORD BIBLE to live by...
Matthew 4:4, “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
Notice that every “word” PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD. The Bible doesn't say “every thought”; but rather, “every word.” Amen! This Scripture in Matthew 4:4 is a quote from the Old Testament, when Moses told the Hebrews that there was much more to life than just eating food...
Deuteronomy 8:3, “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”
I must have an every word Bible if I am to live by every word of God. God said that He put His words into the prophet Jeremiah's mouth...
Jeremiah 1:9, “Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.”
Jesus said that not one jot nor one tittle will pass away in any capacity until all be fulfilled. The NIV butchers have changed or removed over 64,000 words as compared to the King James Bible. Clearly, the NIV is not God's Holy Word and ought not be called as such, i.e., holy. The NIV is unholy. The updated 2011 NIV changed 38.8% of its content as compared to the original 1984 NIV. These are unholy hands on the Bible.
Matthew 5:18, “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
All of the modern corrupt Bible versions have lost their authoritativeness, reading instead like a comic book. The Bible claims to be quick (alive) and powerful. The presence of God's Spirit is not felt when reading the new corrupted Bible versions—which removes the Godhead, attacks Christ's deity, diminishes His preeminence, removes the name of Jesus in umpteen places, removes the mention of worshipping the Lord, et cetera. I'll take the old King James Bible, which still retains its authoritativeness from our authoritative God. The reason why preachers are so dead, lame and pantywaist these days is because they don't use the authoritative King James Bible anymore. The NIV will turn you into a queer preacher, like Marten Woudstra, the homosexual chairman of the Old Testament Translating Committee that produced the 1984 NIV.
Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, not men. Biblica claims that the Bible is “very human.” What they're really saying is that their corrupted Bible versions are “very human.”
2nd Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
Biblica alleges that the Bible cannot possibly be word-for-word inspired because the writers penned the Scripture in their own style and personalities; however, that in no way means God's Holy Spirit wasn't moving through them. Biblica are playing with hellfire, claiming that God did not breath His words to the holy men of old as the Bible teaches. Just because Psalm 51 records David's prayer of repentance, doesn't mean that the Holy Spirit wasn't working through David word-for-word.
Let's get this straight... this is God's Book (the Holy Bible), and God has a right to include whatever He wants in HIS BOOK!!! God would not trust sinful, flawed and errant men to convey the Bible correctly in their own thoughts. The Bible plainly tells us, again, in 2nd Peter 1:21, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” It was the Holy Ghost Who moved upon each writer, putting God's Word directly into their mouth to pen the Bible. Jeremiah 1:9, “Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.” How much plainer could the Scriptures be that the Holy Bible is inspired Word-for-word!!!!!!! Not once does God ever mention putting His “thoughts” into the holy men of old; but rather, it always “MY WORDS.” The problem with many people is that they have to figure it all out or else they have to change things in an attempt to bring God down to their level.
My friend, just because Paul said that he was speaking on his own instead of on behalf of the Lord doesn't mean that it is not God's Holy Spirit working through Paul. 1st Corinthians 7:6, “But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.” If you're not careful, you'll buy into the lie from modern psuedo-scholars that the Devil's statements in the Bible, and Paul's personal comments, and David's prayer of repentance, are not God's inspired Words, and you'd be wrong! 2nd Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” From the first word in Genesis to the last word in Revelation, it's all word-for-word inspired by God! Don't ask me how, I'm only a sinful man saved by God's wondrous grace, but 2nd Timothy 3:16 says that ALL SCRIPTURE is inspired. That word “all” in the Greek means “ALL.”
Satan has published hundreds of Bible versions, which all say something different, to confuse people. 1st Corinthians 14:33a, “For God is not the author of confusion.” Have you ever known someone who continually changed their story? Have you ever found yourself saying, “You just can't believe anything so-and-so says anymore!” That's how many people feel about God's Word these days. There are so many different Bible versions today that the Word of God has lost credibility with many people. I don't know anyone who memorizes the new Bible versions. Bless God, we need to warn people and tell them that the Devil, ole smutty-face, has sold them defective goods.
The Preincarnate Word of God in Heaven
Jesus Christ existed before He came to earth. We learn in John 1:1-3 and 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
The last word of Revelation existed in Heaven before the first word of Genesis was given to Moses. The Bible-butchers at Biblica falsely claim “accuracy and clarity,” but kindly, they are woefully ignorant of the truth of the Scriptures.
On their website Biblical states in an article titled, “Accuracy Of The NIV Bible,” that they intentionally changed the Word of God so as to not offend cooperating religious groups... “Committee members represent a number of denominations, helping to ensure a translation free from theological bias.” Oh boy! My friend, God's Word is not
Psalms 119:89, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Biblica reasons foolishly that David's personal prayer of repentance couldn't possibly have been word-for-word inspiration; but they fail to realize at Biblica that David's words in Psalms 51 were already recorded in Heaven before Adam was ever formed from the dust of the earth by God's hands.
You must realize that God lives in eternity, not time. God created time for man, so that we could know what is coming next on God's prophetic calendar. Revelation 10:6 prophecies of the time when time will end. There are no clocks or watches in Heaven. The original autographs of the Bible are in Heaven. God's words were inspired in Heaven before He ever gave them to mankind. Satan's comments in the Bible were already recorded in Heaven before Adam and Eve ever sinned in the Garden of Eden. Don't try to figure it all out, just accept the truth of the Scriptures. God only authored ONE BOOK, and He is the divine Author of every single word in the Bible!
The Bible Teaches Jot and Tittle Inspiration!
Perhaps you ask, “Do you believe in word-for-word inspiration?” My friend, I believe in JOT AND TITTLE INSPIRATION!!! Matthew 5:18, “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” That's what Jesus said! Jots and tittles are the smallest grammatical marks in a language; such as, a jot on the letter i, or a tittle on the letter t. Commas, semicolons and periods are punctuation marks and were not in the original languages and are not inspired; they were added by the translators. When the New Testament was written in KOINE Greek, there were no chapter divisions, numbers or verses. It was all grouped together. Men added all those things. Although helpful, we must be careful, because sometimes they mislead the reader.
For example: There is a chapter division between John chapter's 13 and 14. If you remove this chapter division, this is what you read...
John 13:38 to John 14:1-3, “Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Peter boldly assured Jesus that he would never deny Him. Jesus startled Peter by telling him that he would deny him not just once, but three times in one night. Peter was troubled when he heard that. So Jesus tells him not to be troubled, because Jesus is going to prepare a place for him, and is going to return to get him, so they can be together. Certainly, this precious truth applies to each and every child of God, but in context the Lord was talking to Peter. You'd never learn this unless you look beyond the chapter divisions. Don't forget this. I always look back to the previous chapter to see what it says, pretending that there is no chapter division. You'll learn many truths this way.
Bless God, I believe in Jot and Tittle inspiration!!! That's exactly what Jesus said. How does this exact emphasis on Biblical text compare to today's lackadaisical approach to the Holy Bible? The average church member has been brainwashed to take into consideration all the different Bible versions and then form their own conclusions. Literally, it's like going to an ice-cream shop and choosing your favorite flavor, cone or cup, and various toppings. That's not how God's Word was written. Jesus said not one jot nor tittle would pass away until all be fulfilled.
You Don't Need to Know Greek to Understand the Bible
In fact, the Greek can get you into much trouble, leading you astray!!! Be careful about Greek study aids, as Dr. Gail Riplinger faithfully exposes in her laborious work, “HAZARDOUS MATERIALS,” because many of the so-called “scholars” weren't scholars at all; but rather, they were unsaved modernists, Nazis, liberals and kooks. Hitler's Chaplain (video by Dr. Younce; Gerhard Kittle and the Nazi influence on modern Bible versions). James Strong was personal buddies with Westcott and Hort, and helped corrupt the Bible. Mr. Strong was on the translation committee of the RSV and ASV. You can hear this history and much more by listening to the free online audiobook of chapter 7 from Dr. Gail Riplinger's awesome book, “Hazardous Materials.” HAZARDOUS MATERIALS—INTRO | CHAP 3. So what can you trust? You can trust the Textus Receptus (the Received Text, or Majority Text) from which our King James Bible was translated. Beware of the Hebrew and Greek study aids, which attempt to tell us what the Hebrew and Greek words mean.
I learned a long time ago that changing just one word can change the entire meaning of a sentence. There are two doctrinal ways that Satan is corrupting our churches: 1) by changing the Word of God into a lie, messing with the Bible; and 2) by redefining the meaning of theological words that we use. For example: The modern dictionary's definition of repent means “to turn away from sins”; but when Jesus said to repent in Mark 1:15 concerning salvation, He meant “to think differently.” Another example is the word faith, which in Ephesians 2:8 means “reliance”; but Seventh Day Adventists and other heretics have redefined faith to mean “to follow Jesus.” By redefining these important terms, the Devil has completely changed what it means to be a Christian. Consequently, our churches are infested with false doctrines.
One example of How Dr. James Strong butchers the Greek, substituting his own preferences instead of the accurate meaning, is in Acts 17:22, “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.” The original Greek says “fearing devils.” The King James Bible translators rendered this as, “too superstitious”; James Strong rendered it as, “very religious.” Thus, Mr. Strong wrongly turned a stern warning into a high compliment. This is one of thousands of examples how modern Hebrew and Greek lexicons and concordances can totally mislead you. Notice that all these corrupted Hebrew and Greek study aids ALL SUPPORT THE MODERN CORRUPT BIBLE VERSIONS! This is because all of these men worked together to corrupt the truth, under the supervision of occultists, to give us our modern corrupt Bibles. Tragically, the churches are gobbling up the poisoned food and asking for more!!!
Another example is the word “Lord” throughout the New Testament, which Strong's renders as Kurious, meaning, “supreme in authority”; but the original Greek defines Lord as Theos, meaning, “God.” It is from Strong's faulty rendering that many wayward Bible teachers obtain the Lordship Salvation heresy. Still, if you simply cross-referenced your King James Bible, you'd come to the proper conclusion that Jesus is God. I cannot recommend enough that you purchase Dr. Gail Riplinger's book, “Hazardous Materials,” as I have done.
You can trust your King James Bible. It is inerrant, infallible, impeccable, perfect, inspired and preserved; but if you want to study the Bible in greater detail, the original Hebrew, Chaldean and Greek are available. However, I agree 100% with Professor Gail Riplinger that the King James Bible has a “built-in dictionary.”
For example: I have heard John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Paul Washer and umpteen other false prophets corrupt the plan of salvation by changing the true meaning on Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” If you rely upon human reasoning or the Greek lexicons, then you will misinterpret this passage of Scripture. However, I was just reading the Bible one day and found a Scripture that defined this verse, in John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” The “will of God” is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
So you see, the Bible does indeed have a built-in dictionary. My mother was from Sweden, where there is a popular game called Husker Du. She migrated to the United States at age 13. I grew up playing that awesome board game! It is a memory game, where you lift a plastic marker and look at an image. Then you put the marker back. Then the other player lifts any one of the markers to see the image. If you can remember where you saw the same image and life the correct marker, then you get to keep the two markers and proceed. When you lift the wrong marker (a mismatch), then your turn is over. This is much like studying the Bible. As I read the Bible, I recall other Scriptures that I have read, that are related, and make the connection (if there is one). Certainly, John 6:40 relates to Matthew 7:21 and shed beautiful light upon the meaning of the Bible. This is all done without any Greek.
A Curse For Corrupting The Bible
Revelation 22:19, “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 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
How We Got God's Word
By David J. Stewart
Psalms 45:1, “My
heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which
I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
I gleaned the following thoughts from a timeless and needful sermon by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) titled, “HOW WE GOT GOD'S WORD?”
Dr. Hyles provides the following excellent sermon outside:
The Words of God have always been in Heaven.
Man must have them to live.
God must find a way to get every Word up there down here to man.
God chose men and made them holy. He did not choose men who were holy; but rather, He chose men to make them holy. By that I mean He set them apart to be His pen.
God could not trust giving to sinful man the Words to give to us, so God gave those Words through these men, holy (chosen and sanctified) men. And through those men He gave His Words to us.
God Himself gave His Words, not to holy men of old; but rather, through holy men of old. God literally put His Words into their mouth. Those chosen men of old, which God set apart for His use, were simply PENS.
King David said...
Psalms 45:1, “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
Through the prophet Isaiah God said...my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.”
Isaiah 59:20-21, “And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and
Beware of any false prophet who teaches that we have no perfect, inerrant, infallible, inspired, preserved English Bible. Bless God, we have that inspired Bible in the KING JAMES BIBLE. God used holy men (that is, men set apart for God's use) to give us the Words of God. God gave men His very Words, not His thoughts, to holy chosen men of old. God did not give His Words to these men to give us; but rather through these men.
The Words God gave bypassed the brains of those sinful men. There's no man in this world righteous enough to be able to take the Words of God almighty and be the custodian of those Words and get those Words to us. Man did not decide what he wrote; but rather, the writers were pens, and God was the Penman. Moses was a murderer. David was an adulterer and murderer. Paul was a murderer. God did not trust those mortal creatures to give us God's Word. Are you going to trust a whoremongering man like Solomon who had 700 wives and 300 concubines to give us the Words of God? No way! God used Solomon's mouth, not his brain. David said he was not the penman; but rather, only the pen for the Lord.
Again we read...
Psalms 45:1, “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”
They weren't holy in the sense of righteous living; but rather, they were “set apart” and chosen for God's purpose and work. Those inspired Words have been divinely preserved unto this day in the inspired King James Bible. The Bible is not men giving us the Words of God; but rather, it is God Himself giving us His Words using the mouths of the men who were chosen by God to do so.
Moses did not give us the Pentateuch (i.e., the first 5 books of the Old Testament). Moses was the mere pen. God is the Penman. It was God speaking through Moses. God cannot use the impure minds of a murderer like Moses, nor an adulterer like David to get His pure Words to us...
Psalms 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
“Pure” means that you cannot improve on them. God's Words are perfect and cannot be made better. God cannot use the impure minds of men to give us God's pure Words. So God chose men and made them holy (not in the sense of being righteous, but in the sense of being chosen). And God said, I'm going to use your mouth and your tongue. The men who wrote the Bible were mere PENS, but God is the divine PENMAN.
Most of the men who wrote the Bible didn't even know what they were writing when they wrote it. The Words of the Bible were not given to us by a man named Moses who killed an Egyptian, nor by an adulterer and murderer named David, nor by a Christ-denier named Peter; but rather, by the God Who penned them. God is the Penmen, and the men whom God chose to give us the Bible were mere pens.
God PROMISED in Psalm 12:6-8 to PRESERVE His Words unto every generation, because we need every Word of God to live as Deuteronomy 8:3 and Matthew 4:4 teach. We have those inspired and preserved Words in the precious King James Bible.
The following needful quote is from Pastor Jack Hyles...
“You recall the first appearance that Satan made on earth, as far as the Bible records, is the appearance in the Garden of Eden. When he came to man and accused God to man. He said, God's Word is not true, I know what God said, but it's not true. Satan has not stopped that kind of dastardly conduct. He still casts reflection on the Word of God. Any time you find a teacher or preacher who stands behind a pulpit or sits behind a desk, and says that this Bible is not verbally word-for-word inspired of God, you can rest assured where that came from. It came from the father of lies, even the one who began such behavior and such accusations in the Garden of Eden.”

There is a malicious attack these days against the inspiration of the King James Bible. It is a critically important issue, because we must have every Word of God if we are to be able to live spiritually as Matthew 4:4 teaches. Don't let the Devil steal your confidence, faith, love, and trust in the inerrant, infallible, impeccable, and inspired Words of God divinely preserved in the precious King James Bible.
Job 32:8, “But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”
Why are There So Many Bibles?
