Corners

And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest, Leviticus 19:9.


Can a field that is not round have corners? Are we to deduce from this verse that all of Israel's fields were perfect rectangles, squares, or trapezoids? What about fields that are bordered by streams or rivers? Were they bound by that law? Our King James Bible is a marvel of precision in translation and absolutely masterly in its usage of the English Language to paint us a perfect picture of the will of God.

You don't have to read very far or to be a genius to realize that the word "corner" in your King James Bible means more than just the meeting of two lines that form a sharp angle. And the border was drawn thence, and compassed the corner of the sea southward, Joshua 18:14. The corner of the sea there is rounded.

Why does that matter? It matters because sometimes men who are perfectly settled on the King James Bible spoil their testimony of its efficacy by refusing to use common sense in looking up how words are used throughout the bible.


And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, Revelation 7:1.


"The earth is flat" they say, "look the bible says it has four corners. Don't be a bible doubter and believe NASA, your geography books, or any testimony of someone who looked at it from outer space. The earth is flat!"


The best response to that is, Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, Leviticus 19:27. "Your head is flat. Don't believe your doctor, your books on anatomy or your lying eyes when you look in a mirror."


To be a King James Bible believer is more than just understanding manuscript evidence. It is more than trusting the translation. It means trusting the words to define themselves so that you can live and work in a world of unbelievers with the advantage over them that you have the owner's manual written by the one who created the heavens, the earth and us. Round spherical things can have corners according to a King James Bible.

That's what happens when you take things literally. And those two examples you chose are perfect.

I remember a person (a convinced atheist) saying " even Jesus Christ said I came not to send peace, but a sword", in order to, some way, deform the nature of God and justify evil things.

Come to my mind this: "for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword", and this: "Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him".

I fancy to say we received the greatest gift, because no word from God seems expendable if God's goal is to lecture/shape your mind and spirit. When you finish…
