The HOLY BIBLE is The WORD of GOD!
(Bible Pledge (c) Rev. Jeffery Spencer)
THE BIBLE IS THE SOURCE BOOK OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, THE TEXTBOOK OF TRUTH, AND THE GUIDEBOOK TO EVERLASTING LIFE.
READ IT TO BE WISE, BELIEVE IT TO BE SAVED, AND PRACTICE IT TO BE HAPPY.
IT PRESENTS THE BEST WAY TO LIVE AND THE MOST COMFORTABLE WAY TO DIE.
ITS A BOOK OF HISTORY, FROM THE BIGINNING OF GENESIS TO THE END OF REVELATION, ITS A BOOK OF PAST HISTORY AND THE HISTORY OF WHAT YET IS TO COME.
ITS A ROADMAP TO HEAVEN.
IT'S LIKE AN ORANGE, IT'S BEEN SQUEEZED SOME, BUT THE BIBLE CAN'T BE SQUEEZED DRY.
WITH GOD AS ITS AUTHOR, IT'S A SPRING OF TO REFRESH YOU IN WEARINESS, A RULE TO SQUARE YOU IN LIFE, A LIGHT TO GUIDE YOU IN DARKNESS, AND A BOOK OF COMFORT FOR YOU IN TIME OF SORROW.
ITS A BOOK OF LOVE STORIES.
A BOOK OF RULES TO LIVE BY.
ITS A BOOK OF COMMANDS TO LIVE BY.
AND IT WILL NEVER BE A BOOK OF BOREDOM. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE READ IT THERE'S STILL MORE IN IT. EACH TIME WE READ IT WE GET A DIFFERENT MEANING OF EACH VERSE.
THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE IS.
FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK, AND POWERFUL, THAN ANY TWO-EDGED SWORD, PIERCING EVEN TO THE DIVIDING ASUNDER OF SOUL AND SPIRIT, AND OF JOINTS AND MARROW, AND IS A DISCERNER OF THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTS OF THE HEART. HEBREWS 4:12
About The King James Version of the Holy Bible
HOW THE KING JAMES VERSION WAS MADE
"A study of the history of the King James Version clearly reveals it to be a God-guided translation of the holy Scriptures. It is said that from four-fifths to nine-tenths of the King James Version is taken from the version of William Tyndale, who published the first printed English Bible in 1525 and died a martyr in 1536. Other 16th century English Bibles which influenced the King James Version are the Great Bible (1539), the Geneva Bible (1560), the Bishops' Bible (1568), and (slightly) the Douay Version (1582)."
"Work on the King James Version began in 1604. In that year a group of Puritans under the leadership of Dr. John Reynolds, president of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, suggested to King James I that a new translation of the Bible be undertaken. This suggestion appealed to James, who was himself a student of theology and of the Scriptures, and he immediately began to make the necessary arrangements for carrying it out. Within six months the general plan of procedure had been drawn up and a complete list made of the scholars who were to do the work. Originally 54 scholars were on this list, but deaths and withdrawals reduced it finally to 47. These were divided into six companies which checked each other's work. Then the final result was reviewed by a select committee of six and prepared for the press. Because of all this careful planning the whole project was completed in less than seven years. In 1611 the new version issued from the press of Robert Barker in a large folio volume bearing on its title page the following inscription: `The Holy Bible, containing the Old Testament & the New: Newly Translated out of the Original tongues; & with the former Translations diligently compared and revised by His Majesties special Commandment'" (Edward F. Hills, Believing Bible Study, p. 64).
THE AMAZING INFLUENCE OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE
"The course of history has made English a world-wide language which is now the native tongue of at least 300 million people and the second language of many millions more. For this reason the King James Version is known the world over and is more widely read than any other translation of the holy Scriptures. Not only so, but the King James Version has been used by many missionaries as a basis and guide for their own translation work and in this way has extended its influence even to converts who know no English. For more than 350 years, therefore, the reverent diction of the King James Version has been used by the Holy Spirit to bring the Word of life to millions upon millions of perishing souls. Surely this is a God-guided translation on which God, working providentially, has placed the stamp of His approval".
