Brethren,

In my travels while on furlough from Taiwan,  I have had some conversations with several pastors and saints in the pew that would like for me to continue this study on the prophesies in the Old Testament that prophesy of the literal Millennial reign of Christ, and the Restoration of the nation of Israel, as recorded in Revelation 20:4-6. This study has been on the back burner for awhile due to my travels, other commitments, getting the house in order to return to Taiwan, and creating another website. My most pressing commitment, the "Scientific Facts in the Bible," thread in PDF format, is a week or two in being finished.

So, sharpen up your swords, meditate on the prophets and their ministries, and take a closer look at Ezekiel 45:1-8 and just take every word as it reads. As an added blessing to those saints who believe every word as it is written, and for those folks who are not sure who the saints are  in Revelation 7:1-8, maybe Ezekiel 45:1-8 can open up those spiritual eyes and see that Ezekiel was truly a prophet and that every word from the mouth of the Old Testament prophets will be fulfilled exactly as prophesied. 

God Bless!

Alan

Ezekiel 45:1-8, “The Dividing of the land of Israel According to the Tribes of Israel.”
Introduction
The context of Ezekiel 45:1-8 is within the context of the ‘visions of God’ starting in Ezekiel 40:1 and continuing to the end of the book of Ezekiel 48:35. The ‘visions of God’ in this complete section of Ezekiel of the Tabernacle are literal, and cannot be construed, or interpreted, in any allegorical sense of the word. Also, the description of the Tabernacle, the offerings, the Levites, the Prince, the ceremonies, the courts, have not been fulfilled in the building of the Temple as recorded in Ezra 6-10, nor can it be a description of Herod’s Temple, nor can it be the Temple built during the 7-Year Tribulation Period, nor in any physical, or spiritual, sense of the word since Ezekiel penned the prophecy.

Therefore, the building of the Tabernacle as described by the prophecy of Ezekiel is future. Since the scripture is very clear that the Apostle John clearly states that in the New Jerusalem, and the New Earth, there is no temple. “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” (Revelation 21:22).
The only possible point in time, as far as the scriptures are concerned, that the prophecy of Ezekiel can be fulfilled as written, is during the 1000-Year Reign of Christ as depicted in Revelation 20:4-8.

The prophet Ezekiel prophesied, “Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.” Ezekiel 45:1

 

The Lord is audibly explaining to the prophet Ezekiel how they should divide the land for the sanctuary of God and for the inheritance of the people. The ‘land’ is clearly physical land, it cannot be heaven, and it cannot be spiritual, and allegory nor a reference to the any ‘inheritance to church age saints.

 

The ‘Inheritance’ of the Saints in the Church

 

In speaking to the saints in Colosse, and therefore to all of the saints in the church age, the apostle Paul states, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24. If a saint in whatsoever he does, does it heartily as to the Lord, he will receive an inheritance.

 

In the book of Ephesians chapter 1, the apostle Paul, among other spiritual truths, as an example, lets the saints in Ephesus know that the Holy Spirit, at the moment of salvation is the ‘earnest,’ or the down payment if you please, of our inheritance (Ephesians 1:13-14). The ‘earnest’ of the Holy Spirit to all saints in the Church Age is a ‘spiritual’ blessing. All of our blessings, all of the inheritance that Paul writes about in the book of Ephesians is ‘spiritual’ in ‘heavenly places. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:4

 

The apostle Peter clearly stated that the inheritance of the saints in the church are in heaven. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.” 1 Peter 1:3-4

 

The ‘inheritance’ of the saints in the church are spiritual and in heaven. There are no physical promises of an inheritance of any kind, especially that of ‘land,’ to the saints in the church.

 

Therefore, the ‘land’ as mentioned by the prophet Ezekiel is not for the church. Furthermore, the ‘land’ that Ezekiel is referring to is the physical land of Israel and the ‘ye’ is therefore the leaders of the nation of Israel.

The ‘inheritance’ of the land of Israel will be in accordance to the promise given, by God Himself, to Abraham and his seed as recorded in Genesis 12:1-3 and 15:7-21 and re-affirmed through the prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 1:25-27, and other Old Testament passages, and set in stone by the Lord Jesus, “And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28).  

The Oblation – An Holy Portion of the Land – For the Sanctuary

“Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about. Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with five hundred in breath, square round about; and fifty cubits round about for the suburbs thereof. And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the sanctuary and the most holy place. The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto the LORD: and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary. And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.”  Ezekiel 45:1-5

The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines oblation as, “Any thing offered or presented in worship or sacred service; an offering; a sacrifice.”[1] The oblation, or the sacrifice, in this prophecy of Ezekiel is ‘land.’ The land will be used for: The Sanctuary, the Priests, and the Levites. Since the day that the Ezekiel penned this prophecy none of it has been fulfilled either literally, allegorically, symbolically, or in a spiritual sense of the word.

Jim,

Thanks!. I had previously mentioned your thoughts before (a couple of times). For everybody's reference, in Lesson 8, page 4 of this study, on the lesson on Ezekiel 47:13-23, "The Borders of the Kingdom," I said:

Ezekiel 47:13-23, “The Borders of the Kingdom.”

 

Verse 13 and 14, “Thus saith the LORD GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions. And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall fall unto you for inheritance.”

 

“... This shall be the border ...” The following borders of the land of Israel has never been given to the Jews since the time of Ezekiel until the current age. This includes the boundary of Israel since 1948.

Modern Border: September 2016

Map of Israel & Occupied Territories

OnLine Baptist Study Map Note:

If anybody has a more accurate map on the current boundaries of Israel that they would like to share, than please do so.

 

The modern border is the most extensive boundary of Israel since the time of Ezekiel. Therefore, the vision of Ezekiel, and the boundaries given to Ezekiel, has not been fulfilled to this day.

The New King James Version is a ‘Profane’ Translation

 

The prophet Ezekiel clearly states that, among other ministries, the ministry of the Levites, the sons of Zadok (Ezekiel 44:15-31), in the Millennial Temple is to explain the difference between the “holy” and the “profane” and to discern between the “unclean: and the “clean.” Ezekiel 44:23 states, “And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.” The millennial Temple is a ‘holy’ place, and the ground it sits on is ‘holy.’(Ezekiel 45:1-6). Thus, the King James Version translators were entirely correct in the usage of the word, ‘oblation’ in Ezekiel 45: 1, 6 and 7. The word, ‘oblation,’ as previously defined is, ‘Any thing offered or presented in worship or sacred service; an offering; a sacrifice.’

 

Among the definitions of profane, the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary definition of ‘profane’ is, “a. 1. Not sacred: secular; relating to secular things; as profane history. 2. Polluted; not pure. 3. Not purified or holy; allowed for common use; as a profane place. Profane is used chiefly in scripture in opposition to holy, or qualified ceremonially for sacred services.”[1]   Therefore, the word 'oblation’ is the correct word to use in reference to the sacrifice of the land in Ezekiel 45:1

 

The New King James Version (NKJV), translates Ezekiel 45:1 as, “Moreover, when you divide the land by lot into inheritance, you shall set apart a district for the Lord, a holy section of the land; its length shall be twenty-five thousand cubits, and the width ten thousand. It shall be holy throughout its territory all around.” The NKJV version substitutes, ‘district,’ for the King James Version, ‘oblation” in Ezekiel 45:1, 6 & 7.  ‘Oblation’ is the sacrifice of anything; in this case land, and has nothing to do with ‘secular,’ or, ‘profane’ things.

 

The primary Webster’s 1828 Dictionary definition of district is, “n. 1. Properly, a limited extent of country: a circuit within which power, right or authority may be exercised, and to which it is restrained; a word applicable to any portion of land or country, or to any part of a city or town, which is defined by law or agreement. A governor, a prefect, or a judge may have his district. Some of the states are divided into districts for the choice of senators, representatives or electors. Cities and towns are divided into districts for various purposes, as for schools, &c. The United States are divided into districts for the collection of the revenue.”[2]

 

It is very obvious that the translators of the King James Version chose ‘oblation’ as the proper word for the ‘sacrifice’ of the land for the Temple of God in lieu of the word ‘district’ as ‘district is primarily used for secular, or profane, uses of land; especially for the collection of revenue by a Government entity.

 

‘District’ does not entail the meaning, of any definition, of a sacrifice at all. In fact, the word ‘district’ is meaningless in the context of Ezekiel 45:1-6 and is a takes away from the ‘sacrifice’ that God desired. The word ‘oblation’ is the correct word for the land that the millennial Temple will sit on. The word ‘district’ is the profane, or irreverent, or secular, or political, and meaningless word for the land the Temple will sit on.

 

Therefore, the Authorized Version, or commonly referred to as the King James Version translation, is correct and the usage of ‘district’ in lieu of ‘oblation’ by the New King James Version translators is in error, is not the preserved word of Ezekiel, and is a profane, or secular, translation of the Scriptures.

 

Furthermore, the New King James Version Preface reads, “In light of these facts, and also because the New King James Version is the fifth revision of a historic document translated from specific Greek texts, the editors decided to retain the traditional text in the body of the New Testament and to indicate major Critical and Majority Text variant readings in the footnotes.”[3] The changing of many verses from the King James Version to mean different usages (which are many), such as the removing of the word ‘oblation’ in Ezekiel 45:1, 6 & 7 and substituting the profane word, ‘district, clearly proves that the New King James Version is not a “fifth revision” of the King James Version of 1611 as the New King James Version Preface states.

Ezekiel 45:1, “Reeds, Cubits, Deeds and Law”

When a person changes a landmark, whether in the field or legal description of land in a “Deed,” or, “Title,” legal document, and tries to pass off that landmark, or document, as a true representation of the property in question, or changes the measurements of the property in question, than that person commits fraud with the intent to deceive. Furthermore, in the Law of Moses, which exceeds in authority than the law of any Government of man, God forbade anybody from moving a landmark. Deuteronomy 19:14, Thou shalt not remove thy neighbor’s landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.”

Furthermore, Deuteronomy 27:17 states, “Cursed be he that removeth his neighbor’s landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen.” It is a serious matter, both in the Bible and in everywhere else, in changing landmarks.

The Law, as written in Ezekiel, is the Legal Deed to the Land of Israel

The scripture is a legal document. In the case of the terminology of the prophet Ezekiel and the one continuous vision of the house of God, the Temple, and the land, in Ezekiel 40:1 to 48:35, the  very words of God Himself state, “Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern. And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them. This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the house.”

“Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. Ezekiel 45:1"Behold, this is the law of the house.”

In Ezekiel 45:1, (and in 48:8), the King James Version, in italics, says reeds. When a word was not in the manuscripts, the King James Version translators put the word in italics. This indicates an honest translation method. The accepted length of a reed is between 10 and 12 feet. The angel is measuring the land with a measuring reed. “And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was man, whose appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.” Ezekiel 40:3

Furthermore, in Ezekiel 42:16-20, when the angel measures the outside east, north, south  and west, land dimensions of the house, or Temple, he uses the measuring reed.

Due to the measuring of the land dimensions, it was very obvious to the King James Version translators that the angel is using the measuring reed in 45:1. Therefore, in order to make the sentence more readable, and in the context of the angel using the measuring reed, the translator’s added reeds in italics.

In the New King James Version, Ezekiel 45:1 says, “cubit.” (which is not italicized), the accepted length of a Hebrew long cubit is 17. 5 inches.

This difference is tremendous. Both versions, the King James Version and the New King James Version, state different types of measurements that give vastly different dimensions of land. So, it is an inescapable conclusion that the NKJV is different from the KJV and that the change from reeds to cubit was deliberate and an error.

Confusion among the Saints

Furthermore, among the scholars, and saints, of the religions world, the ‘reed’ and ‘cubit’ in Ezekiel 45:1 and 48:8 is the cause of much confusion and acrimony. Who is the primary cause of such confusion in the churches? Can the holy writ give us a clue?  “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33, Satan himself is the author of the confusion of these new versions among the saints in the churches. The primary cause of confusion among the Sunday schools, the pulpit, the forums (!), is caused by Satan. Every new version since the Revised Version of 1881, including the New King James Version, is sowing confusion among the saints in their effort to disparage the authority of the King James Version in their mad rush for fame and fortune.

If the King James Version is correct than it is the ‘preserved’ word of Ezekiel and of God. If the New King James Version is correct than it is the ‘preserved’ word of Ezekiel and of God. One of the two versions is not the preserved word of Ezekiel and of God and one of the two versions is a fraud and is sowing confusion among the saints.

We need to be aware that the New King James Version purports to be a “fifth edition” of the King James Version. Nelson Publishers stated, “1979 – NKJV New Testament released from Thomas Nelson Publishers. The New King James Version becomes the fifth major revision.”[1] Based on the differences between the KJV and the NKJV in Ezekiel 45:1 & 48:8, the word reeds changed to cubits, this is a false statement. The difference between the KJV and the NKJV is irreconcilable. Therefore, the NKJV is not a fifth edition of the KJV.

Well done Alan. While I have never liked the NKJV I also have not liked it since I first saw it because of its inaccuracies. As to your stated differences between "reed" and "cubit", this may just be one of those things that many times we are guilty of not really paying attention to. I put myself in this classification. Although I put a lot of time into study, there are times when I get sloppy, especially with single words.

So, having said that, I was delighted to learn that there is a difference and this difference is significant. Thank you.

Thank you Jim.

The more I studied the measurements in the vision of Ezekiel, and other items, it became to dawn on me the magnitude of the vision. The King James Version translators were entirely correct in putting the word reed, in italics, in Ezekiel 45:1, and the NKJV translators made a MAJOR, and a significant, error in putting the word 'cubit.' As I pointed out, the error is irreconcilable with the measurements given by Ezekiel in the vision. It is a fraud of immense magnitude for the Nelson Publishing Company, and others, to declare that the NKJV is a 'fifth edition' of the KJV.

I was going to put the difference in reeds, cubits, the lots, the length of Israel's land in comparison between reeds and cubit;  but, because of the size of the study, the math involved, it is not feasible at this time and I may wait until I have more time and better maps to display with the measurements.

The future restoration of Israel, in the land, with the presence of God in the Holy Temple as in the days of Moses, King David, and King Solomon, and the sheer size of the increase in population during the 1,000 year reign of Christ, will require a large land mass for the Jewish tribes of Israel to dwell in. Also, as I pointed out, the changing of the measurements in the land of Israel, any land for that matter, is a fraud of major proportions and legal consequence.  God put a curse on those who removed landmarks; either physically or on paper.

In verse 6 & 7 the prophet Ezekiel continues his description of the land for the whole house of Israel and then for the prince, “And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel. And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the other side of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of the city, before the oblation of the holy portion, and before the possession of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward: and the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west border unto the east border.”

 

Ezekiel now gives the measurements for the land for the people of the house of Israel, the Jewish remnant that have escaped the wrath of the anti-Christ during the 7-year Tribulation Period and for the prince.

The Prince

The prince was mentioned previously in Ezekiel 44:1-3. In Ezekiel 46:1-18 the prophet Ezekiel shows that the prince is given directions for sacrificing in the Temple for worship. Therefore, the prince cannot be the Lord Jesus Christ, nor can the prince be in any way symbolic, or an allegory, to the Church Age saints.

 

The prince is the resurrected King David as prophesied by the prophets Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Hosea.

 

In Ezekiel 34:1-31 the prophet Ezekiel prophesies against the false prophets, the false shepherds (both in the religious and political realm). Ezekiel 34:1-31 clearly shows that God Himself, verse11-15, will seek the flock and restore the flock back to the nation of Israel. This is a clear prophesy of the Lord Jesus as the Good Shepherd, John 10:1-18 and 21:15-25, and further teaches us the future restoration of the nation of Israel, in the land, in 34:12-16.

 

During the discourse of the immense prophetical happening in Ezekiel 34:1-31, we see clearly that God will raise up King David to be the prince in the restored nation of Israel. “And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD hath spoken it.” Ezekiel 34:23-24

 

The prophet Hosea prophesied of the day when David would return as the prince over Israel, “Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.” Hosea 3:5

 

The prophet Jeremiah prophesied of the return of David, “But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I shall raise up unto them.” Jeremiah 30:9

 

Up to the Church Age, and even to this day, King David has not been raised up, the nation of Israel does not serve the LORD God, the nation of Israel has not been restored, and the vast number of Jews are not seeking the LORD their God.

 

Therefore, the prophesy of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Hosea has not been fulfilled up to this time and is prophetic of future events in the land of Israel.

David as Prince & the Sanctuary & the Tabernacle in the Land

In Ezekiel 37:1-14 we have the vision of the dry bones and then in Ezekiel 37: 15-19 we have the vision of the two sticks, one stick representing Judah, the children of Israel and his companions, and one stick representing Joseph, and Ephraim and the house of Israel and his companions; and then the two sticks will become one stick. In Ezekiel 37:20-28 the LORD gives the future fulfillment of the vision of the two sticks. The interpretation was partially fulfilled when the nation of Israel came back in the land of Israel after the Babylonian Captivity as one nation and not two nations, or kingdoms.

But, the complete fulfillment of the prophesy of Ezekiel 37:20-28 is when David, the servant of God, would be king over the nation of Israel, in the land, as prince, for ever, and that the sanctuary would be in the midst of them. The complete fulfillment is still yet future. Ezekiel prophesied, “And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children, for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be a everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be there God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”

The Tabernacle, was described by the prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 41:1 to 42:15 and then the sanctuary, where the Tabernacle is located, is spoken of in Ezekiel 45:1-5. After the Babylonian Captivity, and up to our age, neither the Tabernacle, nor the Sanctuary, has been built. The reason why God gave Ezekiel so much detail in the construction, the measurements, and the locations of the Tabernacle and the Sanctuary, is make sure that nobody could say it is not literal. And, there would be no mistake when the literal Tabernacle and Sanctuary were completed.

In Ezekiel 37:20-28, David will be a king, a shepherd, and a prince in the restored land of Israel. David has not returned to Israel since the prophet Ezekiel clearly spoke of the day when David would return as king, a shepherd, and the prince of Israel.

Therefore, the complete fulfillment of the prophesy of Ezekiel in Ezekiel 37:20-28 has not been fulfilled. The fulfillment will be as spoken of in Ezekiel 40-48 at the restoration of the nation of Israel during the 1,000-year reign of Christ as spoken of in Revelation 20:4-6

Brethren,

I would like to remind all of us of some of the rules here on Online Baptist. As the 'author' of the 'Revelation Bible Study' thread I am going to try and enforce these rules on my thread the way I interpret them.

Rule # 1:

"Do not promote your own site."

I consider those individuals who post lengthy, or partial, studies from their own website, or a different forum, a violation of this rule.

Rule # 2:

Do not post Spam

a) Spam includes advertisements, content deemed inappropriate or illegal, flooding of the boards, double posts, and posts that are posted just to bring hits to your website;

b) Spammers will be banned from the boards.

c) If your first post contains a link, it might be considered spam. Add links to your profile instead.

I consider those individuals, who are members of other forums, copying and posting, whether or not a link is in the post, on my study, a 'double post' (one post on the individuals forum and the same post on my study), 'spam.' Next time this happens,I will ask the moderators to remove the post.

Rule # 3:

"3. Feel free to quote the Bible, if you do we ask that you use the KJV. This is done to avoid confusion. The Administrators and Moderators of this site believe that the KJV is Gods preserved Word for the English speaking people, and we ask that you respect that and use the KJV when quoting scripture."

I consider the Authorized Version, or commonly referred to as the 'KJV, the 'preserved' word of God. If another post shows up on my thread that belittles, disparages, or other wise demeans the KJV, or uses a version apart from the KJV, I will ask the moderators to delete the post.

Alan

    • KJV ME!

      Now it is time for me to step out of my shell and let go... I AM STRICT KJV!... In scripture God said he would preserve his word... Well did he or didn't he?... If there is every translation under the sun, then he didn't but I KNOW HE DID!... The preserved word of God called the KJV is for the English people has been around for over 400 years and what is interesting to me, is the KJV was translated in 1611 and the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620... Coincidence?... A new book the preserved KJV word of God for the New World... So take that you KJV naysayers... I have been reading, studying and digging through the KJV for over 50 years... My belief is 100% Christ and scripture says so... Glad to be here and its time to take these shackles off!   
      John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

      Praise God I found such a powerhouse of the outpouring of His Spirit and unapologetic in regards of the defense of the KJV Bible. When I became a Christian back in 1984, I was told to get & read the KJV. It's been my choice all these years.

      Also, the land in Egypt wasn't land God gave them it was land Joseph through Pharaoh gave them. God gave them Canaan.

    • KJV ME!

      Now it is time for me to step out of my shell and let go... I AM STRICT KJV!... In scripture God said he would preserve his word... Well did he or didn't he?... If there is every translation under the sun, then he didn't but I KNOW HE DID!... The preserved word of God called the KJV is for the English people has been around for over 400 years and what is interesting to me, is the KJV was translated in 1611 and the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620... Coincidence?... A new book the preserved KJV word of God for the New World... So take that you KJV naysayers... I have been reading, studying and digging through the KJV for over 50 years... My belief is 100% Christ and scripture says so... Glad to be here and its time to take these shackles off!   
      John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
      I am... Brother Ramsey
