With the E-Sword app for Android, Mac, iPad, or iPhone, you can study the King James Bible using the KJV+ option. You can research a word in the Bible by clicking on the Strong’s concordance # (i.e. Love G25) to see where else the word appears in scripture in order to get a better understanding of the scriptures using correct context (to avoid falling into error or heresy). The best way to define a word is to let the Bible define itself. Stay within Scripture and let Scripture interpret Scripture!
The second best option if you really need assistance with a word in scripture (though I can’t say I trust it 100%) is to go to the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary, which defined words before most of the Bible translations we have today were made and before a lot (not all) of worldly and political corruption the world has come to know existed - where words and meanings are greatly being “re-defined."
I suggest you write down the revelations you have from scripture (CONTEXT IS KEY!). You can also listen to the King James AudioBible.
REMEMBER: Nobody knows it all except God alone. Everybody is wrong about something, to say the least. Yet we should yearn to know the truth by studying and edifying one another using scripture which provides all we need to know as a Christian, for the scriptures "are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” - 2 Timothy 3:15-17.
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” - Colossians 2:8
"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” - Matthew 24:5
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” - Galatians 1:8
How do we know truth from a lie? Our feelings or emotions? NO! We know it by knowing the Word of God IN CORRECT CONTEXT letting scripture interpret scripture and not going outside of it:
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” - Hebrews 4:12
… And no it’s not important to be a Baptist because Baptists are still a Denomination and follow a carnal man-made stand/sit - stage/audience fake religion. I’m not saying everyone who goes to an un-biblically structured church is going to Hell. If they believe in the finished work of Christ, they are going to Heaven. However why pursue fake religion? Also the man in this video is currently in heresy because he strayed from the simple gospel and says you need to “ask” Jesus for forgiveness instead of simply believing in Christ’s finished work which paid off your sin debt in full, but his 2 videos here have good information.
A person is saved by believing in the finished work of Christ and cannot earn, maintain, or lose their salvation. PERIOD.
If you have a kid who messes up their life, they are no more or less your child because of it. We are a child of God by believing in Christ alone for our salvation. God doesn’t do spiritual abortions. There is and always has been one faith, one baptism, one Israel of God made up of both Jew and Gentile who believe in Christ alone for their salvation. (Everyone else who dies without Christ is a child of the devil by default.)
However, to grow as a Christian and earn eternal rewards in Heaven, Christians are called to follow the commandments of Jesus (you know, the actual words of Jesus perhaps written in red), for: "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” - 1 John 2:4
*It’s not saying that the Holy Spirit isn’t in him (or her), and that the liar is not saved, it’s just saying that the person or Christian is lying that says they know or have a "relationship” with Jesus and don’t do His commandments. We know him not by our carnal thoughts, feelings, or 5 senses like demonic Charismania, or even by merely "doing things in His name” like those who trust in their works (Matthew 7:23) but we come to know our Father by knowing His nature, walking as He walked, i.e. His commandments (love one another, love your enemies, etc. etc.). Hard to find people who practice this in my experience, yet that is the whole point of growing as a Christian or “going to church.” Not to show up for a “pew,” a “sermon,” or because “you’re supposed to,” or a tithe bucket to merely keep the electric of the house or building on. Money gathered should be given to Christians meeting together who have need of it.
We’re also called to follow the moral commandments of the Law Of Moses (found in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) that aren’t ceremonial in nature (washings, sacrificing animals etc.) or the penalties for sin (stonings, etc.) as Jesus became our full and sufficient penalty for us, or are “overridden” by Jesus or the New Testament - like caring about the clothes you wear or a hairstyle or worrying about what sexual sin is in the Law of Moses, just simply knowing (or thinking about) anything outside of marriage between a biological man and woman is considered sin and covers all the “you shalls” of the law of Moses regarding that subject, etc. "Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” - Romans 3:31. The scripture needs to be properly and carefully divided. We know what sin is by looking at the law of Moses and the commandments of the New Testament. "I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.” - Romans 7:7. Jesus said: "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 5:17-18
Again, I am not saying someone who doesn’t follow Jesus’ commandments or the moral commandments of the law of Moses is not saved, for it has nothing to do with that. You can be saved and unfortunately choose to live a life personified by evil, but you will disappoint God and lose out on potential eternal rewards because you reap what you sow. YOU RECEIVE SALVATION BY FAITH ALONE, AND YOU EARN REWARDS BY YOUR WORKS. Many get these 2 confused and twist scripture out of context. To go to Heaven, you just need Faith, but to earn or inherit anything in Heaven, you need good works. Also Christians pursuing Holiness should avoid Christians or proclaimed Christians that don’t follow the commandments of Jesus and the moral commandments of the law until/unless they repent (change their mind) and stop unrepentantly continuing their evil deeds. God wants us to pursue Holiness and mature in the faith, not stay as babes being tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine and our own sinful nature of the flesh.
Yet your actions have nothing to do with your salvation or should be looked at as proof that you are saved. You can choose to continue living a life of sin, and still be saved. But how stupid and a waste that is and an eternal disservice to others and yourself! Struggling is one thing, but Christians who sin without remorse… Do you want to be the least in the kingdom of Heaven? The “black sheep” of the family so to speak? No Christian should be seen with you until/unless you repent. If you repent, fellowship again and rebuke anybody who brings up your “mistakes" again. I, like many, have been on both sides of that coin so to speak and have had to repent and move on. Love one another, forgive one another as Christ forgave you. "Iron sharpens iron…" - Proverbs 27:17. Nobody is perfect except Jesus who we trust in alone for our salvation.
Be blessed! Tell people the Gospel (the Good News)!
