For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles, Malachi 1:11.
From the first publication of the King James Bible to the present time, there have been 11 English Heads of State (8 kings, 1 Queen, and 2 Lord Protectors) and as of a few moments ago, there have been 46 presidents of the United States who have borne the executive authority over the majority of the English Speaking population of North America. There was an interim period between 1776 and 1789 when the governors of the several newly freed states bore that executive authority.
Among these men (and one woman) have been very wise leaders. There have been fools and weaklings. There have been men of vision and strength whose leadership wrought great blessings. There have been men whose personal weaknesses prevented them from ever being a blessing to their people. What has not changed in that long succession of earthly leaders is God's word to the English Speaking People.
I speak to those people who still have a King James Bible. It has been the grace of God to the English Speaking people that God's name has been made great among us through that book and the preaching of that book. If there is a peril in the world today, it is not from the change of executive authority over this people. It is the forsaking of and meddling with the word of God that will damn the English speaking people.
In the several English Speaking nations around the world we see the ever increasing ungodliness of humanism, socialism and atheism. Be not deceived, this is the judgment of God against a people who have turned from the truth. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient, Romans 1:29. God is not kind to those who turn back from the truth. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him, Hebrews 10:38.
The madness that is destroying our English Speaking nations is coming from the bible colleges and pulpits. The attacks upon the King James Bible are attacks upon the foundations of our goodness. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?, Psalm 11:3. There are cycles of God's displeasure upon a people who turn from him. First and foremost is the turning over to a reprobate mind. A nation is not cursed for its increase in sodomy. Its increase in sodomy is the curse. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature, And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet, Romans 1:26, 27.
One of the great ironies of the American right which has protested the devolution of America is that so many of them are the sowers of the corrupt seed. Those who have cast aspersion upon the King James Bible and have labored to remove it from its place of preeminence have in reality undermined God's chosen vessel to make his name great among his people. A cycle as sure as water swirling around a drain has started and it won't get better. Pestilence has begun. We can look forward to military humiliation.
These things are not because of the Communist Party or the teaching of evolution in our schools. It is not some Masonic or Jesuit plot. It is the turning back of the English Speaking people to the bibles and texts of the Dark Ages that is turning off the light of truth. The answer is not marches on our centers of government. The answer lies in individual men and women working through their churches to reestablish the King James Bible in the hearts and homes of our respective countries.
I have had the joy of seeing individual families turn to the truth, families which had been wounded by sin and the false promises of society. I have had the joy of watching children whose lives had entered that hellish zone of their parents whose own lives had been destroyed being now raised in God honoring homes. For me, the issue of the King James Bible is not some theory. It is a proven fact exercised day after day, week after week and year after year in the lives of people who the devil had written off.
I often wonder when I see our nations lurch out of the way of truth what effect it would have if every church in our countries could have seen the changes in families that the Black Creek Baptist Church of Black Creek, New York has seen. It is not that we are growing in attendance (yet we are), many churches are experience a growth in attendance. What is almost universal among them is that their growth in attendance has nothing to do with soul winning. It has far more to do with musical chairs as people shift churches.
When I sold mobile phone service for many years, we called the process whereby people switched carriers, "churn". These were customers who bought a service but quickly changed carriers when their terms of service ended. Most large Fundamental churches today exhibit churn. They have a core of members which is often growing and they have a certain amount of attendees who they are attempting to win to Christ.
The churn is in that second group of attendees. They fill their purpose by making professions that can be catalogued and published, but they rarely ever stick. It is as futile as the Mormon's baptizing people for the dead in their temples and believing that the Kingdom of heaven is growing. It is extremely rare that those people ever stick. They are there to convince the pastor and his people that they are soul winning.
The Black Creek Baptist Church has a core of people who were garnered from the broken homes and shattered lives of our community. Their lives are utterly changed. At any given time we have earnest attendees whose lives are sotted with sin but who have begun to feel the first tugs of righteousness upon their hearts. There has been no greater factor in my dealings with these people than giving them hope that there really is bedrock truth, and that they can hold and read that truth, and that the King James Bible is that truth. (Our goal here s not professions, it is changed lives.)
The hope for our people is in restoring the King James Bible to its prominence one life and one family at a time.
