Translation Trouble – Mat 11.3


AV “And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?”


NKJV    – And said to Him, Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?


[[ Allegedly New Agers refer to anti-Christ as “the Coming One”- Is it accidental that NKJV uses their term? ]]

A day you have to prepare to meet


Your Maker up on the golden street,


Or His enemy in “cave” below.


Which way, my friend, will you go?




Oh, you want a week, a month, a year?


What about a life-time? But I fear


Knowing how humans like to delay


We’ll still wait till the last day.




Grasp this moment.  Decide for the Lord


His promise is true.  Believe His Word.


Today is the day of salvation.


Come, without hesitation.

                – 9/5/12

YOU are in charge of your life! 


Not your parents (God bless them),


Not your school (God help it),


Not your country (God be merciful to it).


Y- O- U.

Translation Trouble – Mar 16.9-20

NASB has a footnote, “Some of the oldest manuscripts omit from verse 9 through 20.” Don’t let oldest fool you.  These so-called oldest are not the one most accurate to original languages.  They may have survived because of a lack of use – older accurate manuscripts being worn out by constant handling.  See John Burgon’s book, The Last Twelve Verses of the Gospel of Mark. He’s written over 400 pages proving conclusively that this section was in the original manuscripts. His book remains unanswered.

<<Personal note: Yes, I heard this too and from a good man.  We too often fail to look beyond SECONDARY sources>>

It matters not the color of your skin


Nor the language that you speak.


You’re an earthling, therefore,


One whom Christ came to seek.

War destroys Men!


(Women!  Children!),


Machines, Mansions,


Major highways, & more.


Peace builds.


WONDER who is the “father” of war?
