Whence Cometh Perspective?

And after those days we took up our carriages, and went up to Jerusalem, Acts 21:15.


Within the King James Bible believing community resides a small but vocal minority who insist that the world is flat and that the sun rotates around the earth. When pressed on this, they merely state, "that's what the bible says, we believe our bible". I see that position as working discredit to our bible. I'll take a little time to explain why. Indeed from man's perspective, the sun does rotate around the earth. From man's perspective Paul and Luke went up to Jerusalem. From God's perspective they went down to Jerusalem. Acts 21:15 is written from man's perspective, not God's.

The bible does not place the position of God's throne directly above the center of the land masses on earth. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King, Psalm 48:2. In Lucifer's rebellion he vowed to; sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north, Isaiah 14:13. Moses in the law recognized that when he wrote; And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the LORD: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar, Leviticus 1:11. God's throne is above the northern heavens.

For Paul's party to travel from Caesarea to Jerusalem was to travel south. That is down from God's perspective. The elevation may have been higher in Jerusalem than at Caesarea, but the 75 miles further south and away from God's throne more than compensated for the increased elevation. They traveled down, away from God's throne. When Luke wrote that they went up to Jerusalem, he said so from his perspective's not God's.

When the bible says that the sun rose, it says so from man's perspective. From God's perspective the earth turns on its axis on a 24 hour basis and rotates around the sun every 365 1/4 days. I do not correct a King James Bible to state that. I take each of its statements in their respective contexts and honor God by believing them.

People who are against gay marrage are accusing Jesus who is a male of sinning when he saves a male and sinning again when he marries the saved male in the marrage supper of the lamb. Jesus does not sin.

Money is anti - Christs teachings. Money is anti - ask and receive. Money makes God's image to be mean to god's image. People know this insisting on the use of money anyway. Man's perspective is not God's perspective. That is the carnal mind.

Ted Cruz is a Sodomite. Gays have never done what is recorded in Scripture. Ted Cruz is wrong.

People speak of rules as if they are laws that Jesus taught and kept. It is blasphamy to sat they are. Knowing they are not God's laws - rules makes them to be Satan's laws - rules that are heavy.

God gives to me his perspective. They that are wise will look like a fool unto earthly men. The world needs to get away from pay. God wants people to be their money. People ask and receive. They make whatever. God made whatever not using money. God wants to do the same through us. Money is a roadblock. God will control himself as to what he requests from whoever. God knows that what is to come will be greater than what is.
