PART 1 of 3 – What is Your Version?

{This is a comment I got from a friend when I posted What is Your Version?  I found it very informative and well written.  God Bless my friend Dave.}

Please allow me to speak boldly and at length on this topic.

PART 1 of 3

The modern mind set that “we’re more sophisticated than previous societies” is simply stated out of ignorance of previous civilizations. The fact is,the Roman Empire was so incredibly sophisticated that modern scholars and researchers still cannot comprehend all the complexities of their society.

The laws in Rome are one example of how such a society operated. If one looks at today’s legal system you will find that all throughout the western world, we’ve adopted the Roman model. Go to Webster’s Dictionary…look up the term “Civil Law”. What you will find is it says: Roman Civil Law, this is because the system today is very similar to the system 2000 years ago. This is not accidental! For your friends who are skeptical of the importance of this fact, remind them about the Prophesy of the Kingdoms of the World as written specifically in Daniel and Revelation.

We are living in the last days, of the last days. The final empire of the world before the return of Christ is the Revived Roman Empire. Many of our laws in the USA have been brought forward VERBATIM from the ancient Roman Empire. Another point to consider is that our legal Maxims of Law are brought forward in Latin, the language of ancient Rome.

The one world government/New World Order that so many fear is this same Revived Roman Empire. That is a fact of law and prophesy that can scarcely be denied. All the world is being set up before our eyes to make this NWO happen. All countries are getting on board, and those that are not….are the one’s that the US is either at war with right now, or are threatening with war!

As an aside for those who follow the “we’re wiser than the ancients” argument, check out the website http://www.beforeus.com Get ready to be blown away at their advanced technology!!

As far as Bible Translations are concerneed there is a problem that no one here has addressed, and that is, one actually has to have an incredible amount of historical knowledge about Customs, Traditions, usages, laws, and life of the ancients before they can begin to ascertain how to select a particular word to fit into the context of the sentence and paragraph. However, having said that there are certainly better texts than others.

The first thing that everyone reading the Bible should know is that in order to obtain a Copyright and make a profit on the work of the Prophets, one must SUBSTANTIALLY change the ORIGINAL TEXT!!!! If you are serious about learning more about who God is, and how you should be living your life…do you really want to be reading from a text that has been substantially changed from the original??? I certainly hope not.

My experience has been that as time goes by the translations have a way of becoming worse, not better. Historically, I’ve used the King James Version for my research, but not because it is “so superior”, but simply because so many of the companion texts are keyed to it. For the last 15 years I’ve been using the George Ricker Berry Greek Interlinear, but it also has some weaknesses. Still, for the New Testament, I feel it is probably the very best that anyone could get their hands on.

I am a father of five a loving father an involved father. I have my struggles, I have my days, but I have the lord to be with me to get me through. I view my life sometimes like that of Naomi. I do the best I can, but I am bitter because things seem to have been taken away, but I am also stronger and a better human being overall. I pray I am walking and doing God's plan. I pray he would use me more. God Bless and thank you for your love and support.
