Question: Dear brother in Christ, I’m delighted for this website, we ALL need Our Heavenly Fathers truth to be told. Question, why are the so called original bibles differ from truth? It’s hard for me to understand the Kings English bible,and the original Hebrew manuscripts. Is there an “original” bible that explains God’s truth,love,his son, laws, and woes ? I wonder if the kenites are behind writing this confusion? I really want the truth and nothing but Our Heavenly Fathers truth, read and recorded in my heart!!!

Answer: MeLisa you are very welcome and thank you for the question.
The King James Version Bible (KJV) can be a bit difficult to understand for the typical English reader, at first anyway. However, the more you read the KJV the easier it is and becomes second nature. It really does not take that long, I would encourage you to pick it up and stick with it.
We only use and recommend the KJV for Bible study. The other versions of the Bible have been distorted beyond measure and in my opinion are not fit for the Christian if they hope to have any real understanding of God’s Word.
With the King James Version Bible you can use a Strong’s Concordance which allows you for the most part to take a word back to the original language and see the various meanings of the word. If you look at the top of our site and navigate to “Resources” –> “Bible Resources” you will find a link to e-Sword which is free Bible software. You can read our review on it here.
I know there was at least one Bible before the KJV called the “Geneva Bible” which was published in 1560. Any original of this would extremely tough to read as the English is far different from today’s. Even the KJV Bible we read today is a re-copy of the original which was printed in 1611, our modern version is from 1769.
You wondered about Satan’s children and rightfully so. Please turn your Bible with me to,
1 Chronicles 2:55
55 “And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.”
Plain as day for anyone to read. The children of Satan were doing all of the book work for God’s children 2,500 years ago. 2,500 years ago, think about that for a moment. How polluted do you think the world is today when we grasp this simple fact? If you read our study, “Why We Use the King James Bible” you will see we point out some of the confusion they have added to the scriptures.
I am glad to see you questioning what you are presented with. That is how we learn and stay on guard, by asking questions and not swallowing everything we are given.
Question: Hi Brandon! I was wondering how close do you think we are to the 5th trumpet? I know we’re going to have to wait until after the election because whoever gets elected will play a big part in it. I was just wondering what you thought about it.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Sineka thank you for the question.
I think we have a way to go before the sound of the fifth trumpet. I personally do not believe a single Trumpet has sounded and I believe God’s Word documents that as well. I will not be documenting my position in this Q&A as we just completed a chapter in a study we are working on that documents it right from God’s Word. We hope to publish some of these chapters soon. In the mean time, read the events of Revelation 7 and then compare them with the sounding of the Trumpets in Revelation 8.
With respect to the elections I truly do not believe it matters who “wins” as the people lose no matter who “wins“. Remember, globalization is about the entire world, not just the United States. Unfortunately this nation is the leader in globalization efforts. They fund it and support it at every angle and opportunity. They have outsourced a lot of very good jobs overseas and now they are bringing in foreign workers and have been for some time as it is cheaper labor. Americans are simply being replaced now in their own nation.
Politicians are not our leaders, they are our elected representatives and they all have failed miserably. No matter who wins, the direction of this nation has already been set by the children of Satan. Their only obstacle is the people themselves and that is their only fear, the people revolting. Not just the people of this nation, but the world. They control the politicians, but they do not have absolute control of the people.
One thing is certain, no one is going to derail our Father’s plan and we are certainly nearing the final leg of prophecy.
We spoke about globalism a bit and the manufactured crisis called terrorism in a video which you may want to watch.
Question: Hi Brandon, my walk with Christ is still fairly new and I am learning the word. I know you always say the bible never contradicts itself. My question is regarding baptism in water, Matthew 3:11 John the baptist says He who comes after me is mightier and will baptize you with the holy spirit. Do we still need to go through water baptism in order to be saved? Thanks for taking time to read my question.
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Winnie and congratulations with accepting Christ into your life.
In Matthew 3:11 John was describing what Christ would tell us Himself in Acts 1:4-5. Please turn there,
4 “And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.”
5 “For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.”
Christ was telling the disciples to stay in Jerusalem after His departure and the Holy Spirit would come upon them and it did on Pentecost day which simply means “fiftieth” day (John 16:7). “Fiftieth” day from what? Passover.
The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples allowing them to speak with one voice, yet it was heard and understood by all of the people in attendance in their own language and even the accent from where they were from.
I laid all that out to hopefully answer a deeper question that may be there for you or others. To answer your question you do not have to be baptized in order to be saved. You can document that from the account found in Luke 23:32-43 where one of the malefactors essentially told the other two to hold their peace as they railed on Christ.
This malefactors spoke up in defense of Jesus. Christ told him, “Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” They sure did not come down off of the cross and jump in a creek.
The requirements for Eternal Salvation can be found in John 3:16 and Romans 10:9 . They are certainly basic requirements that I feel go a lot deeper than how they read. Many people believe in Christ, but they do not live it. In my opinion that is not really a belief. If you truly believe in something, especially Christ you go the extra mile, you put in the work to understand His Word as you want to build a relationship with our closest relative. Our Heavenly Father.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
