Only those who have surrendered their hearts completely to Jesus

If you’re a native English speaker (or learning it as a primary second language) you owe it to yourself to study the Classic King James Bible.  Many references are made to It in a variety of books – without a knowledge of It your education is below standard.  But, of course, the greatest possible value for the KJB is that It will (if you prayerfully follow) guide you into being a child of God – both in time and in eternity.

I love you Lord Jesus, I love you fine Lord,

Who out of your heavenly cabinet and board,

Could skillfully, willingly, immensely let rain

A small seed-like substance again and again.

It covered the ground around camp and then some,

Till the slowest and lowest had finally come

And picked up their pot-full of heaven’s light bread

Carrying it tent-ward on shoulder or head.

You send down the manna one morning then two,

One-hundred times, then thousands (days flew!)

And when finally the last Jew had placed his dry sandal,

On the west bank of Jordan forty years later,

Your bounty could’ve (without poverty or scandal)

Furnished more manna, yes, manna galore.

Who knows the amount of God’s kitchen-store?

– eab, Jan. ’03 (2nd stanza of a larger work)

Read the King James Bible

as History (include geography) – It is most authentic.

Allow It to influence your English – It is a great vocabulary builder.

Revel in Its breadth and depth of Literature – It contains the greatest stories known to man.

Be alert to Its Mathematics – It has numerous thought problems.

Learn Its facts of the Sciences – modern “science” has many theories.

These spell HELMS – let them steer you.

– eab, 1/15/16
