    Re-introducing myself

    Glad to have you back. I am looking forward to both your fellowship and comments on the various subjects. The Lord has blessed our family with three of our children graduating from Heartland Baptist Bible College. And, I have some fine fellowship with a host of pastors that have enjoy the fellowship of Heartland. May the Lord bless you and the Mrs. Happy 2nd. Wedding Anniversary!
  2. In the sermon, "The Mule Walked On," by Lester Roloff, uploaded by Matt in "Sermon," Lester Roloff stated, "We need to learn how to dress like Christians."

    God's Sovereignty

    The devotion by Dr. Morris was a blessing to my heart. Dr. Morris stated, "With our very limited knowledge of God’s purposes and our very short-range view of eternal priorities, we are ill-equipped to prejudge His ways with us."

    God bless!

  6. I just found a website that printed, with permission from Dr. Heaton, the first edition of the book, "Are the Words In the King James Bible Archaic and / or Obsolete." The first edition only has three chapters. In the second edition (the one that I am referring too), has five chapters with more pertinent information concerning words that have changed their meaning, rare words, and other information. Here is the link to a printed copy of the first edition:https://www.biblebelievers.com/Heaton1.html
  7. I updated the post to include a link to the Bible Baptist Bookstore that sells the pamphlet. I will also include the new link onto this post: http://store.kjv1611.org/brands/Paul-Heaton.html
  8. John, I just finished listening to the sermon on Leviticus 18. I appreciate your boldness in proclaiming the truths of the moral obligations that God commanded to all men, in all countries, in all dispensations, as recorded in Leviticus 18. Alan
  9. I appreciate reading your summary of Leviticus 18. The same moral sins listed in the Law of the Old Testament, Leviticus 18 as one example, are still still an abomination in the sight of an Holy God. The immoral customs of the land of Egypt, the world, is not, repeat not, to do practiced among the saints in any dispensation or in any any country. "After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances." Leviticus 18:3 The Apostle Paul stated, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 When I have time I will listen to the full sermon.
  10. I appreciate your observation and statement. This statement is true. From the RV of 1881, to the newest versions on the market, all of the new versions are full of confusion.

    I too like the idea of both the "IFB" and the "Denomination" fields.

    Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    Very good idea. Any other illustrations that illustrate the trinity? Also, one of the thoughts that Larkin brought out was how the Godhead is always in perfect unity. Larkin called it, "The Tri-Unity." The Lord Jesus stated it this way, "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak." John 12:49 Are there any comments on the perfect unity of the Trinity? Or, an illustration on the perfect unity of the Trinity in a simple illustration?

    Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    I understand. I have heard of the egg for illustrating the trinity before and see its value as and illustration due to its simplicity and observability.

    Clarence Larkin - The Spirit World

    The Spirit World Chapter 2, “The Tri-Unity of God” Overview There are no charts in Chapter 2. Larkin states, “One of the great “Mysteries” of the “Spirit World” is the “TRI-UNITY” of God. The Scriptures clearly teach the distinct personality of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”i Larkin gives three verses as references and then comments on them in order to show that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit acted as one entity. 1. Matthew 3:16-17, “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 2. Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” 3. Genesis 11:7, “Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Additional References by Alan Concerning the Trinity I would like to add 1 John 5:7 as a reference to this study. 1 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.” 1 John 5:7 clearly states that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one. Larkin’s Illustration of the Sun In an effort to give an example of the Trinity of the Godhead, Larkin proceeds to give us the illustration of how the Sun of our solar System is a “trinity.” Larkin states, “The “Sun” of our Solar system is a “Trinity.” It manifests itself in a “Threefold” manner, “Heat,” “Light,” and “Chemical Action.” These three properties of the Sun make up the Sun itself. Neither one of them by itself is the Sun. The “Heat” of the Sun is not seen, but is felt. The “Light” of the Sun can be seen, and it is the “Light” of the Sun that makes the Sun VISIBLE. The “Chemical Action” of the Sun can neither be seen nor felt, but its power is revealed in the growing plant, and on the photographic plate.”ii Larkin then states that the Heat of the Sun corresponds to the Father as the Father cannot be seen but He can be felt by His love towards us. Larkin references 1 John 4:7-16 and John 3:16 Larkin states that the “Light” rays of the Sun correspond to God the Son. God the Son, the Lord Jesus was “visible” and came to manifest the love of God (invisible). Larkin references three passages. (1) 1 Timothy 3:16, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (2) John 8:12, “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (3) John 14:9, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?” Larkin states that the “Chemical Action” of the Sun correspond with the Holy Spirit. Larkin states, “It is the Holy Spirit that gives life and power on the sensitive plate of the “Human Heart.”iii Additional References by Alan Concerning the Holy Spirit I would like to add that it is the Holy Spirit, through the scriptures, convicting the hearts of the lost to be saved, guiding the saint to the truths of the scriptures, comforts us, and gives us power to witness. 1. John 16:8, “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” 2. John 16:13, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” 3. John 16:13, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” 4. Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” The Manifestation of the Trinity in the Old & New Testaments Larkin continues his illustration with the Sun and the Trinity by explaining how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit manifested the unity of the Trinity it dealing with the sons of men on the earth. Larkin references two New Testament passages. 1. Matthew 28:20, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” 2. John 16:7-14 Additional Thought by Alan Concerning the Manifestation of the Trinity Typically, as with the other subjects in this book, Larkin does not go into a lot of detail concerning the manifestation of the Trinity in the Old Testament. This is partly due to the length of the Old Testament and the manner in which God worked. It is my opinion that this was done purposely in order to give the individual reading the book just the basic thought and guiding the reader to further study on his own. Here are a few of the passages of the Old Testament concerning the manifestation of the Trinity, or the Tri-Unity, of the Godhead. 1. Genesis 1:1-3 2. Genesis 1:27 & 28 3. Genesis 18:1-33 4. In Genesis 24:1-67 we have the moving story of Abraham (a type of the Father), the servant (a type of the Holy Spirit), seeking a bride for Isaac (a type of the Lord Jesus), working in perfect unity. “And he [the servant] said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master’s brethren.” Genesis 23:27 5. In Ezekiel 1:1-28 we have a clear teaching of the working of the Trinity in perfect Unity. “The Tri-Unity of God.” Larkin states that man, who was made in the image of God, is a trinity. Larkin references two verses. 1. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 2. Genesis 1:26, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” Additional Information by Alan Concerning the Trinity of Man On page 85, in Chapter 10, “Man’s Relation to the Spirit-World, Larkin has a chart that may be beneficial to your understanding of the trinity of man. The chart is located on page 2 of this overview. i Larkin, Clarence The Spirit World, (Glenside, PA: Rev.

  15. Good study on the word, "loins" in the KJV and the incorrect actions of the translators in deleting the word "loins" in the newer versions. The King James translators were correct in the usage of the word "loins" and the word "loins" is not an archaic word, neither should the word "loins" be changed. If a person has a problem with the word "loins" and any other "archaic" word in the King James then he just needs to look at the context of the word in question or just get a decent dictionary. Also, Dr. Paul Heaton, pastor of the Bible Baptist Church in Lupton, Michigan, has written an excellent pamphlet called, "Are the Words In the King James Bible Archaic and / or Obsolete." Dr. Heaton goes into great detail concerning the incorrect usage of the word "archaic" and words of the King James Bible. I would suggest every saint to get a copy of the pamphlet, "Are the Words In the King James Bible Archaic and /or Obsolete," by Dr. Heaton.http://bbc.m33access.com/index.html May 18, 2018 Update.
