god s truth yea hath god said thus from the beginning the attack was on god s word eve did not abide in god s word and satan was able to exclude the abundance of all god had given adam and eve then eve carelessly omits god s words that allowed them every tree of the garden to freely eat gen 3:2 she committed omission and even addition to god s word in gen 3:3 with neither shall ye touch it lest ye die eve obviously doubts the god-given warning and consequence satan in his vileness denies and attacks god s words of gen 2:17 thou shalt surely die with the wicked assertion recorded in gen 3:4 ye shall not surely die and so it was and is ­ the taking away and adding to that is clearly warned against in scripture rev 22:18 &19 over 3,000 times this holy book records the scriptures divinely inspired origin multitudes have possibly read gen 1-3 with the intent to read the entire bible certainly the most read verse in the bible must be gen 1:1 and satan takes the vile spikes of hell and attempts to drive them into the heart of truth read gen 1:1 here is the first and foundational utterance recorded for us today as in gen 3:1 the liar attempts to kill the truth in the beginning god in the beginning was the word so the attack of satan starts in the beginning yea hath god said sadly in churches today from the pulpits and classroom podiums come statements like this would be better translated or the better manuscripts contain or omit thus and so certainly the title textual critics describes well the critics of god s word that come with their scholarly exacto knife to cut and paste together some eclectic perversion of a bible that meets the approval of man s will establish ground plant your soul your all firmly in the beginning and you will have no problem believing living in and standing on the truth open the king james bible to ii peter 1:19-21 we have also a more sure word of prophecy whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts knowing this first that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation 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 for more resources visit us online at · 5

please make a note of the following observations 1 our lord and saviour warns to take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness luke 11:35 peter warns with similar words take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place sadly men are coming with the darkness of criticism to examine god s word rather than by faith to have the light examine them 2 modern bible versions coming out of textual criticism is obviously an eclectic assortment of men s determinate will to derive god s word from what they believe to be flawed text by the way these textual critics are using flawed disgarded yea corrupted text that the true church rejected yes out of the corrupt comes corrupt it has been estimated that a beam of light traveling at 186 thousand miles per second the speed of light could travel on and on in the same direction without ever coming to the edge of the universe but god s light at eternal speed destroys and dispels darkness with the brightness of his son in the beginning god created the heaven and the earth and the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the spirit of god moved upon the face of the waters and god said let there be light and there was light the spirit of god moved god said let there be light yet devils darkness deceit and death tries to kill the light but the light exposes such amongst all the ideas religious teachings myths and theories about the beginning why is it that men are so hostile demeaning and resistant to the biblical record why the abandonment of the traditional text and the king james bible with such an aggressive effort to prove errors in the kjb while critically searching for a better bible amongst corrupted text thy word is truth forever settled amen in the beginning god that s the answer to accept the bible record is acknowledgement accountability and acceptance i tim 1:15 4:9 of god s judgement and justice here it is acknowledge lord god almighty accountability to god almighty and acceptance or rejection say no to god almighty acceptance of him he is his love mercy and grace to have or reject 6 · the voice in the wilderness · summer/fall edition 2010

how will we top that next year the pastor said to his youth director it has become quite a challenge not to mention competition to do it bigger and better than the world as well as the church across town has the ministry outreach been reduced to a marketing madison avenue disney world entertainment center with a spiritual flare no i m not a stick in the mud and yes i enjoy laughter and a good time of fellowship and recreation yet i remember well the caution what you win them with you will keep them with you cannot deny the full and productive ministry of charles spurgeon he said the devil has seldom done a cleverer thing than hinting to the church that part of their mission is to provide entertainment for the people with a view to winning them providing amusement for the people is nowhere spoken of in the scriptures as a function of the church the need is biblical doctrine so understood and felt that it sets men afire chs too often a close examination of the local church will reveal a very shallow carnal existence few daily read and study the bible feeding on the bread of life but would not miss a food and fun event at the church bible memory is almost unheard of and even solid bible teaching is scarce then what about prayer meeting and soulwinning yes people need to fellowship and have church activities but what if bible study missions activities soul-winning a solid music ministry and outreach to the elderly occupied the churches weekly calendar maybe a generation of young people reared on church ministry and biblical family involvement rather than ballgames and amusement parks would have a real impact on their jerusalem certainly such a walk would honor christ 1 cor 10:31 just thinking out loud just thinking outloud just thinking outloud the mere idea of preference infers imperfection a mortal certainly flawed from the start has chosen this over the other the bible that is read to be examined by a fault finding eye must inevitably be rejected the very effort of some to write translate or publish a better bible is proof that sinful man s propensity is to recoil at the convicting power of god s word for more resources visit us online at · 13
