					    THE
SPIRIT OF GOD
    IS AN
    „IT‟
                1
 Saying the spirit of God is an „IT‟
 upsets a lot of church folk ...
•Once we church folk have „learned‟
what we believe to be a „true‟ fact, it
is hard for us to accept any new facts
that disagree with „facts‟ we already
believe to be the truth.
                                     2
•WHAT IF WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE
FACT IS WHAT WE HAVE COME TO
BELIEVE BECAUSE OTHER CHURCH
FOLK BELIEVE THE SAME …

•WHAT IF WHAT WE BELIEVE IS HALF
TRUTH AND WE DO NOT KNOW IT…
•WHAT IF WE AGREE WITH WHAT OTHERS
SAY.. AND NEITHER HAS STUDIED GOD‟S
WORD FOR THEMSELVES
                                3
  (2ND Tim 2:15 =Study to shew thyself
  approved unto God, a workman that needeth
  not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word
  of truth.)

• I‟m afraid most church folk depend on church
  „leaders‟ to do this for them.
• Those that do not study for themselves depend
  on others to tell them what God says.
                                           4
     BEFORE
  WE LOOK INTO
GOD BEING A SPIRIT,
 LETS LOOK INTO
     ‘GOD’ IS
                 5
        GOD IS THREE PERSONS

• (Gen 1:26 =And God said, Let us make man in
  our image, after our likeness:)
• The three persons of God agreed to this statement.
• If we are made in the image and likeness of God,
  then God‟s image and likeness is like we are…
• Then we being „persons‟ like God is, then God is
  „persons‟ as we are „persons‟ …

                                                6
             GOD IS ONE
• There are 3 persons in the Godhead.
• (1st John 5:7 = For there are three that bear
  record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and
  the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.)
• These three are one.
• If God is one, how can God be three..
• We know from the word there is the Father,
  the Son, and The Holy Ghost.
                                             7
          GOD IS ONE GOD
• (James 2:19 = Thou believest that there is
  one God; thou doest well: the devils also
  believe, and tremble.)
• God does not claim to be one being.
• God says He is one God in 3 persons;
• How can God be 3 persons when God is a
  „Spirit‟.
• This word „Spirit‟ confounds the minds of
  many „spiritual‟ church folk.
                                               8
     GOD IS THREE PERSONS
• The way the Father, the Son, and the Holy
  Ghost are one is that they are in absolute total
  agreement with God the Father.
• In the Kingdom of God, each person of the
  Godhead has His own position in The Kingdom
  of God designated by God the Father.
• The Kingdom of God is a literal kingdom with
  a „chain of command‟…
                                                9
         GOD IS THREE IN ONE

• Many church folk error in likening God as to ice,
  water, and steam..
• God is not the same person in 3 different „forms‟…
• How can God be one and at the same time be three?
• We must realize that „one‟ can be more than one.
• (1st John 5:8 = And there are three that bear witness
  in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood:
  and these three agree in one.)
                                                  10
 MAN AND WIFE ARE ONE FLESH
       ...OR THEY SHOULD TO BE…
   ACCORDING TO GOD‟S WORD
(Gen 2:24 = Therefore shall a man leave his
father and his mother, and shall cleave unto
his wife: and they shall be one flesh.)
•We know as fact that man and wife are two
separate persons of flesh and blood.
•We know as fact from God‟s Word, man and
wife are also one flesh...
                                               11
 How can man and wife be one flesh..

• 2nd Tim 2:15 =Study to shew thyself approved
  unto God, a workman that needeth not to be
  ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
• … “rightly dividing the word” simply means
  discerning when God is speaking of the „spiritual‟
  or when God is speaking of the „physical’.
• Man and wife are one flesh „spiritually‟ when they
  are in total agreement with God.
                                              12

   T
 IS THE
SPIRIT OF

GOD
            13
            GOD IS A SPIRIT
•(John 4:24 =God is a Spirit: and they that worship
him must worship him in spirit and in truth.)
•God says He is a „Spirit‟ and the only way we can
worship Him is in „spirit‟ and in truth.
•How can we, being flesh and blood, worship God
who is a Spirit, in spirit and in truth.
•We must „be in the spirit‟ to worship God.

                                               14
 (God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
  must worship him in spirit and in truth.)

•Just what does „Spirit‟ means…
•Spirit and Ghost have the same Greek meaning.
• Spirit/Ghost = 4151 pneuma { pnyoo’-mah}
ghost, spirit; a movement of air; a gentle blast
of air; breath
•One way we can worship God is by believing
who He is in our ‘hearts’ and praising Him
with the breath from our lips.
                                               15
       THIS
     IS VERY
   IMPORTANT..
 THE WORDS SPIRIT
AND GHOST HAVE THE
 SAME MEANING…..
  THEY ARE NOT
    THE SAME
     WORDS           16
        Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit
• There is no way to the Father but by the Son and
  no way to the Son but by the Holy Ghost.
• (John 14:6 : Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,
  the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
  Father, but by me.)
• Each person of the Godhead is God.
• The three are one in that they totally agree one
  with the other.
                                               17
 The Holy Ghost
is the third person
of the Godhead….
 The Holy Spirit
  is an entity of
the mind of God.      18
THE CLOSEST THING MAN
HAS TO COMPARE TO THE
SPIRIT OF GOD IS „RF‟……
 WITH RADIO FREQUENCY
  SIGNALS, MAN CAN SEE
  AROUND THE WORLD….
MAN IS LIMITED BUT GOD IS
LIMITED ONLY BY WHAT HIS
WRITTEN WORD SAYS……….   19
     THE
   SPIRIT
  OF GOD IS
NOT A PERSON
           20
           The seven Spirits of God
• The church is in error, believing that the Holy Spirit
  of God and the Holy Ghost can be interchanged.
• When they do this, they change what God said.
• The Spirit of God is an IT … the Spirit of God is a
  THING made up of 7 parts..
• (Rev 3:1 = And unto the angel of the church in Sardis
  write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits
  of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that
  thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.)
                                                   21
       Why seven Spirits of God
• Seven is God‟s number for completeness.
• The Spirit of God belongs to God The Father and
  every thing about God is „HOLY‟.
• There are 7 „parts‟ of the Spirit of God.
• God‟s Spirit is „how‟ God the Father is God of..
  and God above all Gods.. and above all gods.
• God the Father gave of His Spirit to God the Son
  when He anointed Jesus above his fellows to be
  the Son of God.
                                              22
      WHO ARE JESUS‟ „FELLOWS‟

• (Heb 1:9 =Thou hast loved righteousness, and
  hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath
  anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy
  fellows.) above.. 3844 para { par-ah’} besides, near
• This is God the Father speaking of/to God the Son.
• Notice .. the Son is anointed above His „fellows‟…
• fellows.. 3353 metochos { met’-okh-os} partaker,
  fellow
• Jesus was chosen „above‟ His fellow gods. 23
 WHEN YOU MENTION TO „CHURCH FOLK‟
  THAT THERE ARE OTHER gods, IT SENDS
  THEIR GOSPEL MIND INTO A SPIRITUAL
 „TAIL SPIN‟…………………………………….
 TO THOSE THAT HAVE NOT STUDIED FOR
  THEMSELVES, YOU BECOME A HERETIC
   BECAUSE THERE BEING OTHER gods IS
  AGAINST EVERYTHING WE HAVE BEEN
  TAUGHT IN CHURCH....................................
• Most will physically stop their ears and refuse to
  listen to what God‟s Word says about other gods.
                                                  24
    THIS IS NOTHING NEW FOR
  „CHURCH FOLK‟.. JESUS FACED
   THE SAME THING FROM THE
   RELIGIOUS PEOPLE WHEN HE
   WAS SENT TO EARTH AS MAN
• The religious people refused to believe The Son of
  God in person when he tried to tell them He was God
• Since we are taught that there are no other gods but
  God, why would we believe The Word of God...
                                                25
    WE „SPIRITUAL‟ CHURCH FOLK SAY..
   “..Y.. THERE AINT NO OTHER gods..!!!!...”
(Ex 20:3 = Thou shalt have no other gods before me.)
•“Just because God says we are to have no other gods
before Him, did God really mean other „gods‟…”
•gods is the same plural Hebrew word for „our‟ God..
..gods.. 430 Õelohiym { el-o-heem’} Godward,
divine ones
•If there are no other Gods other than The Father, The
Son, and The Holy Ghost, why would God command
that we have no other gods before Him…             26
 IF THERE ARE NO OTHER gods.., WHERE
 DID MELCHISEDEC COME FROM……….

• (Heb 7:1a, 3 =For this Melchisedec, king of
  Salem, priest of the most high God,…. 3With
  out father, without mother, without descent,
  having neither beginning of days, nor end of
  life; but made like unto the Son of God;
  abideth a priest continually.)
• Melchisedec is a god and a priest and a king
  in the Kingdom of God.
                                             27
      THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS
      NOT THE HOLY GHOST
• Heb 1:9 = Thou hast loved righteousness,
  and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy
  God, hath anointed thee with the oil of
  gladness above thy fellows.)
• [oil represents the Spirit of God.. not the
  „person‟ of The Holy Ghost.
• The Father anointed Jesus with His Spirit
  that the Son has the power of God.
                                                28
  What are the seven Spirits of God
• The seven Spirits of God is the complete Spirit
  God the Father gave to God The Son, by which
  to do the Father‟s will.
• It [the Spirit of God] is the means by which
  God is everywhere at the same time.
• God sees all things.. knows all things.. has all
  power over all things, by His Spirit.

                                                 29
What are the seven Spirits of God
(Is 11:2 =And the spirit of the LORD shall rest
upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of
knowledge and of the fear of the LORD)
•The 1st part of the Spirit of God is The spirit of
the Lord „itself ‟.
•The spirit of the Lord is the „carrier‟. The spirit
„contains‟ the other 6 parts of the Spirit of God. It
embodies all of the Spirit of God „itself ‟…
                                                30
 (Rom 8:16= The Spirit itself beareth witness
 with our spirit, that we are the children of God:)

• It is the Spirit of Christ that we receive when we
  are „saved‟. It is Christ‟s Spirit that bears witness
  with our spirit that we are a child of God.
• (Rom 8:9 =But ye are not in the flesh, but in the
  Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in
  you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of
  Christ, he is none of his.)
• It is by Christ’s Spirit we are born again.
                                                   31
       SALVATION
     COMES THROUGH
  JESUS… NOT THROUGH
 GOD THE FATHER……NOT
THROUGH THE HOLY GHOST..
 WE ARE „SAVED‟ WHEN WE
    RECEIVE THE SPIRIT
        OF CHRIST
                      32
      And the spirit of the LORD shall rest
      upon him, the spirit of wisdom…….

•The 2nd part of the 7 spirits of God is the spirit
of wisdom.
•The spirit of the Lord rest upon Jesus, the spirit
of wisdom.
•Jesus has complete wisdom of which we have
access to if we ask.
(Jas 1:5 = If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask
of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and
upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.)     33
  And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon
him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,

• The 3rd part of the seven spirits of God is
  the spirit of understanding.
• The spirit of the Lord [God the father] shall
  rest on Jesus the spirit of understanding.
• Jesus has the wisdom and understanding of
  God the Father.
• He has all the answers to any problem we
  take before Him. We must ask, then listen.
                                              34
  And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon
  him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
  the spirit of counsel …..

• The 4th part of the 7 spirits of God is the
  spirit of counsel.
• We have a counselor that knows the will of
  God for each of us.
• If we listen to the counsel of Christ when He
  speaks, imagine the peace and joy we would
  have even in times of trouble.
• Paul and Silas sang while in bonds for Jesus..
                                              35
 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon
 him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
 the spirit of counsel and might, ….

• The 5th part of the seven spirits of God is
  the spirit of might.
• The spirit of the Lord [God the Father] rest
  on Jesus the spirit of might.
• God the Father gave to Jesus all power to do
  His will.
• Just by speaking the Word, it is done.
                                                 36
    And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon
    him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
    the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of
    knowledge…..
• The 6th part of the seven spirits of God is the spirit
  of knowledge.
• The spirit of the Lord [God the Father] Rest on Jesus
  the spirit of knowledge.
• There is almost nothing Jesus does not know. Even
  the hairs of our head are numbered.
• The Holy Ghost does not have to count hairs and go
  tell Jesus the number.. Jesus is God. Jesus has His
  own Spirit by which He counts our hairs...       37
   GOD THE FATHER KNOWS
  THE MIND OF THE SON, BUT
   THE SON DOES NOT KNOW
   THE MIND OF THE FATHER

• Jesus does not know the day and
  hour that God the father will send
  Him to get His body of believers.
                                       38
 (Math 24:36 =But of that day and
 hour knoweth no man, no, not the
 angels of heaven, but my Father only.


God the Father has retained this information for
himself only. By His own reasoning, He chose not
to share this day with His Son, nor the Holy Ghost

                                               39
  (And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon
  him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding,
  the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of
  knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;)
• The 7th part of the seven spirits of God is the fear of
  the Lord.
• Why would God the Father anoint God His Son with
  the spirit of the fear of the Lord.
• This is a reverence and respect of love.
• (1st John 4:16 = And we have known and believed the
  love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that
  dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.) 40
    BY THESE 7 PARTS OF THE SPIRIT
    OF GOD, JESUS IS OMNIPOTENT….

•   1-The spirit of God itself..
•   2-The spirit of wisdom..
•   3-The spirit of understanding..
•   4-The spirit of counsel..
•   5-The spirit of might..
•   6-The spirit of knowledge..
•   7-The spirit of the fear of the Lord..
                                             41
The Spirit of God is not a person.
• God the Father gives each of us our own
  spirit, that our flesh can live.
• Our spirit is our personal link assigned to us
  from God the Father at conception to give our
  flesh life.
• Just as we are given our own individual spirit
  from God, each Person of the Trinity has His
  own Spirit from God the Father.
                                             42
At conception, God the Father gives „of ’ His
Spirit to that union and it becomes a living soul.
• (Jas 2:26a =For as the body without the spirit is
  dead,…)
• It is by our spirit from God the Father that God sees
  everything in us..
• (Prov. 20:27 =The spirit of man is the candle of the
  LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.)
• By our spirit, God can see/hear our every thought.
                                                  43
THE THING THAT SEPARATES MAN AND
 BEAST IS THAT MAN IS A LIVING SOUL
•   Both man and beast have spirits from God.
•   When man dies, his spirit goes back to God.
•   When a beast dies, his spirit goes down to the earth.
•   (Eccl 3:21 =Who knoweth the spirit of man that
    goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth
    downward to the earth?)

                                                    44
          THE SPIRIT OF GOD
• God the Father is the possessor of the seven
  spirits of God ... He gives of His Spirit to the
  Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
• God dwells in us by His Spirit.
• Physically, Jesus is in heaven at the right hand
  of God the Father.
• Spiritually, Jesus, by His Spirit, lives in each of
  us on earth if we are „born again‟ believers.
                                                     45
     THE SPIRIT OF GOD,
   AND THE HOLY GHOST..
[WHICH IS THE 3RD PERSON OF
 THE TRINITY OF GOD..] ARE
 THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD
  MYSTERIES OF GOD IN THE
      CHURCH TODAY
                        46
      Holy Ghost ..or.. Holy Spirit
• (Romans 8:16 = The Spirit itself beareth witness
  with our spirit, that we are the children of God:)
• The Word says: the Spirit „itself‟. [KJV]
• This is not an error in God‟s Word, despite most
  translators changing „itself’ to „himself ‟ …
• God used ‘itself ’ to better explain God‟s Spirit
  bearing witness with our spirit, that we are the
  children of God. God‟s Spirit is not a person.

                                                47
         GOD
         IS A
       MYSTERY
      A MYSTERY IS AN
    OPEN INVITATION TO
  SOLVE THE UNKNOWN…
 THE UNKNOWN IS SOLVED
WITH THE FACTS WE DO KNOW
                        48
   (Col 2:2b-3 =and unto all riches of the full
  assurance of understanding, to the acknowledge-
  ment of the mystery of God, and of the Father,
  and of Christ; 3In whom are hid all the treasures
  of wisdom and knowledge.)
• We see here that each person of the Godhead has
  His own mystery about Him..
• 1st .. The mystery of God the Holy Ghost..
• 2nd .. The mystery of God the Father..
• 3rd .. The mystery of God the Son..
                                                49
(unto all riches of the full assurance of under-
standing, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of
God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are
hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.)

•ALL THE TREASURES OF KNOWLEDGE AND
WISDOM FROM GOD CAN BE UNCOVERED IF
WE SOLVE THE MYSTERIES IN GOD‟S WORD.
•THIS IS NOT MAN‟S IDEAS OR OPINIONS..
•THESE ARE GOD‟S WORDS FROM HIS WORD.
                                               50
(Col 2 =and unto all riches of the full assurance of
understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery
of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3In whom are
hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.)

• God tells us with full assurance that the treasures of
  knowledge are hidden in the mysteries of God…
• We have been taught by church leaders that we are
  not to even mention the „deep‟ things of God..
• Every thing we desire to know about God, He has
  hidden in His Word that we may solve His mystery.
                                                   51
   LOOK WHAT GOD‟S WORD SAYS
  ABOUT THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD
• (1st Cor 2:9-10= 9But as it is written, Eye hath not
  seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the
  heart of man, the things which God hath prepared
  for them that love him. 10But God hath revealed
  them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit search-
  eth all things, yea, the deep things of God.)
• God tells us He will reveal His deep things to us
  by His Spirit.
                                                   52
 The Holy Ghost or The Holy Spirit

• God‟s Spirit is a part of their persons just as
  our mind is a part of our person.
• Each person of the Godhead is a mystery; each
  having his own mystery about Himself.
• Each person of the Trinity has His own Spirit
  by which He operates and their Spirit is Holy
  [hence.. the Holy Spirit].

                                             53
  HOLY GHOST…HOLY SPIRIT

• There is nothing about God that is not Holy.
• The Spirit of God is a „tool‟ OF God.
• When we use the term „Holy Spirit‟, we are
  speaking in general of „how God operates‟.
• If we go by what is in a word or what a word is
  translated to mean, then My name „Bruce‟ is
  translated to mean „Woods‟ .
                                               54
  ARE GHOST AND SPIRIT THE SAME

• If someone called me „Woods‟, it would be what
  my name is translated to mean; it would not be my
  „given‟ name to identify Bruce from „Woods‟.
• It is the same with the Holy Ghost.
• Spirit and Ghost have the same meaning, but God
  gave us a name to distinguish between the third
  person of God, and a wind, or a breath, or a spirit.

                                                  55
       Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit
• „Holy Spirit‟ speaks in general of the „tool‟ the
  three Persons of the Godhead use;
• The „Holy Ghost‟ is the third ‘person’ of the
  Trinity of God.
• God‟s Word cannot be understood by the
  natural mind no matter how man changes it.
• The Word of God is Spiritual and can only be
  understood spiritually.
                                                56
     (Jn 6:63 =It is the spirit that quickeneth; the
    flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak
      unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.)

• Man in his natural understanding is trying to write
  his own bibles in his own words.
• He uses his own words trying to make it easy for
  the natural mind to „see‟ what God says.
• God has not changed and neither has His Words.
• We must get back to the standard and let God the
  Holy Ghost teach us by His Spirit.
                                                   57
       Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit
• God has given each of us one or more gifts of
  the Spirit.
• 1st Cor 12:1-3 = Now concerning spiritual gifts,
  brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2Ye
  know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto
  these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
  3Wherefore I give you to understand, that no
  man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth
  Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that
  Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
                                               58
      Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit

• God‟s Word does not conform to our natural
  understanding; we must transform our minds by
  the spiritual understanding of God‟s Word.
• God‟s Word has milk for babies; after growing
  on the milk, one should grow into the meat to
  learn to chew and not choke.
• This takes time and effort on our part.

                                            59
       HOW CAN
    THE HOLY GHOST
   BE WITH EVERYONE
 ALL OVER THE EARTH AT
THE SAME TIME……………..
       BY
       HIS
      SPIRIT             60
      Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit
• God does not desire that His church sit on a
  pew and suck a bottle all our lives.
• He wants us to get into the meat of His Word.
• Learning in Church for adults should be like a
  great big „spiritual‟ picnic.
• We all should gather together and share our
  „spiritual dishes‟ we‟ve prepared, that we all
  eat healthy balanced spiritual food.
                                              61
   HAS THE CHURCH DONE BETTER SINCE
  TIMOTHY WROTE THIS TO THE HEBREWS

(Heb 5:12-14 = For when for the time ye ought
                   12

to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again
which be the first principles of the oracles of God;
and are become such as have need of milk, and not
of strong meat. 13For every one that useth milk is
unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a
babe. 14But strong meat belongeth to them that are of
full age, even those who by reason of use have their
senses exercised to discern both good and evil.)
                                               62
  WE DO NOT STUDY GOD‟S
 WORD IN CHURCHES TODAY

• We are taught from books man has written to
  tell us what he thinks God‟s Word says.
• What we have now, are churches based on
  man‟s doctrines rather that God‟s doctrine.
• Because of the lack of knowledge of God‟s
  Word, most church folk do not know anything
  is wrong with what we are doing.
                                          63
   IF WE JUST LOOK AT WHAT WE
  SEE, EVERYTHING „LOOKS‟ GOOD

• Do you know that the divorce statistics is just
  as high in the „church‟ as it is in the „world‟.
• Divorce is become the norm rather than a rare
  event among Christians.
• It is hard to tell a church member from a non-
  church member in the world today.
• There is more conversation about the ball
  games than about God in our churches.
                                                 64
           Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit

• We must get back to the standard of God‟s Word.
• We are at the end of our last days, but by our actions,
  it appears that church folk do not believe we are.
• In His Word, God shows us His deep mysteries.
• There are no errors in God‟s standard He gave us.
• Man has changed God‟s Words to his own under-
  standing of what he thinks God should have said.
                                                   65
     THE „NATURAL‟ MIND CAN NOT
    UNDERSTAND THE WORD OF GOD
•No matter how „simple‟ man tries to make the
words „read‟, it takes the Spirit of God to discern.
•One must first have the Spirit of Christ to even
become a child of God.
(Rom 8:9 = But ye are not in the flesh, but in the
Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.
Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he
is none of his.)
                                                  66
(1st Cor 2:12-14 = 12Now we have received, not the
  spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God;
that we might know the things that are freely given
 to us of God. 13Which things also we speak, not in
    the words which man‟s wisdom teacheth, but
which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual
     things with spiritual. 14But the natural man
 receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for
they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know
    them, because they are spiritually discerned.

                                                 67
   I AM ASTONISHED AT
THE NUMBER OF CHURCH
 LEADERS THAT BELIEVE
„ALL TRANSLATIONS‟ OF
  GOD‟S WORD INTO THE
   ENGLISH LANGUAGE,
      HAVE ERRORS..
                   68
  WITH THIS MIND-SET, MAN HAS
 CHANGED HIS VERSIONS OF GOD‟S
 WORD TO „FIT‟ HIS OWN DOCTRINE
• Does God care that man changes words and leaves
  our words to make his translations say what he
  thinks it should say..
• Yes.. God does care if we change His Words..
• (Heb 10:30 = For we know him that hath said,
  Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense,
  saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his
  people.
                                                69
(Rev 18:18-19 =18For 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: 19And 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.)……………………………….

                                               70
  THIS MEANS THAT THEY
 THINK THAT GOD INTENDED
FOR YOU AND ME TO DO THE
BEST WE CAN, TO DETERMINE
  WHAT IS TRUTH, WHAT IS
HALF TRUTH, AND WHAT IS A
   COMPLETE LIE, IN OUR
 WORDS FROM GOD BY MAN
                            71
 DO THEY THINK GOD‟S ONLY CONCERN
WAS THE HEBREW AND THE GREEK.. BUT
NOT US ENGLISH-SPEAKING FOLK TODAY

• God has not changed the meanings of His Words.
• (Mal 3:6a = For I am the LORD, I change not;)
• Did The Holy Ghost „just step back‟ after He told
  the new testament prophets what Greek words to
  use as He spoke to them as they wrote..
• Did The Holy Ghost let the King James writers
  „do their best‟ as they translated from Greek to
  English without His help.                        72
(2nd Pet 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.)

•This is what God says about the accuracy of His
written Word that He gave to you and me.
•God sent us an interpreter and teacher that you and I
have access to, to know the truth of God‟s Word..
•God sent us the person He named the Holy Ghost, to
be with us until Jesus comes back.
                                                  73
     (1st Thes 1:5a =For our gospel
    came not unto you in word only,
   but also in power, and in the Holy
     Ghost, and in much assurance;

• God tells us that our word of God came not
  only in word only, but also in power and in the
  person of the Holy Ghost.
• God assures us that there are no errors in HIS
  Words for us today.
                                               74
  (Gal 1:11-12 = But I certify you, bre-
                      11


 thren, that the gospel which was preached
 of me is not after man. For I neither re-
                               12


 ceived it of man, neither was I taught it,
 but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.)
• Paul tells us that his gospel came to us from Jesus.
• Can man improve on the Words from The Words
  that Paul used.

                                                   75
   MAN MAY REWRITE HIS
VERSION OF WHAT HE THINKS
 GOD SAID IN HIS WORD, BUT
   MAN CAN NOT CHANGE
        GOD‟S WORD…
       THE TRUE WORD
   OF GOD WILL IN THE END
 JUDGE THE MAN THAT TRIED
TO CHANGE HIS WORDS….……
                         76
       Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit
• Man has written many versions of the bible into
  the English Language since the 1950‟s.
• Each version has more „liberal‟ views than the
  one preceding it.
• Every new version is written to teach the views
  and doctrines of the translators.. Not God‟s..


                                              77
NO MAN LISTENING TO GOD
WOULD CHANGE ONE JOT OR
ONE TITTLE OF GOD‟S WORD.

SO WHY WOULD MAN DESIRE
  TO CHANGE GOD‟S WORDS
  OR ADD WORDS TO WHAT
        GOD SAYS..
                        78

       99% OF ALL CHURCH
    MEMBERS BUY „NEW‟ BIBLES..
• I HAVE 3 OR 4 VERSIONS MYSELF..(I do not
  write this not knowing what I am talking about. I
  have studied the new versions…)
• …AT ANYWHERE FROM $20 TO $60 EACH…
• MULTIPLY THAT BY 99% OF CHURCH
  MEMBERS THAT BUY NEW VERSIONS TO
  MAKE IT „EASIER‟ TO UNDERSTAND GOD‟S
  WORD.
• WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF MONEY
                                              80
THE ENEMY HAS CREPT INTO THE HIER-
 ARCHY OF CHURCH ORGANIZATIONS
  AND WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE HIM
  BECAUSE OF WHAT WE BELIEVE..
    THE ENEMY HAS AN AGENDA..
      THAT AGENDA IS TO RE-
       MOVE THE POWER OF
          GOD FROM THE
            WORD OF
              GOD
                               81
  •
 I THINK THE ENEMY IS CLOSE TO
 85% ACCOMPLISHED THIS GOAL..
• (Eph 6:12 = For we wrestle not against flesh and
  blood, but against principalities, against powers,
  against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
  against spiritual wickedness in high places.)
• The enemy is doing this and most church folk can
  not see the difference because the enemy is subtle.

                                                  82
          HOW HAS THE ENEMY
          ACCOMPLISHED THIS..
• It has been very simple for him..
• He has accomplished this by having church leaders
  change God‟s standard of the Word of God to books
  in which the Holy Ghost has been removed .. the
  power of God has been removed from them.
• They have changed God‟s Word to words that „fit‟
  the understanding they have come to believe to be
  the truth.
                                              83
THERE IS A SIMPLE WAY TO TELL
IF A BIBLE IS INSPIRED BY GOD…

• Look and see if God The Holy Ghost is in it.
• I guarantee by God as my witness, that there
  are no errors in that Bible if The Holy Ghost
  has not been removed.
• You will find one problem in your search..
  The old KJV will be the only one that still
  has The Person of The Holy Ghost in it.
                                                  84
  THERE IS ANOTHER SIMPLE WAY TO
  TELL IF MAN CHANGED GOD‟S WORDS
  IN A BIBLE…

• (Gen 1:1 = In the beginning God created the
  heaven and the earth.) [heaven is singular]
• In the beginning there was only one heaven
  just as there will be in eternity.
• (Rev 21:1a = And I saw a new heaven… )
• God made the 3rd heaven to separate God from
  fallen man until sin is done away with.
                                             85
  WE ARE IN A BATTLE AND OUR
  ENEMY FIGHTS US THROUGH OUR
  LEADERS DOWN TO THE TROOPS.

• If the devil can change our word and take the
  Power out of our word, he‟s won half the war.
• Many will read this and think this is „trivial‟..
  just a „war of words‟.. It is a War over The
  Word of God. One error makes God a liar..
• God is Truth and is no lie.
• We must decide which is truth or half truth.

                                                  86
       THE
