Hello Brethren, I am posting this on my husbands behalf (he asked me to as he is working and can’t do it himself, so not to confuse anyone that I’m trying to teach anything)

he works with a guy who just doesn’t believe that the King James Bible is the true Word of God! And he’s always trying to get Travis to look into things and he listens to James white, I could go on!! But anyways we have never been hit with something like this before. So he wanted me to post this link for you all to check out and would appreciate your input. My husband was faced with a pretty heated battle last night with his one boss and a guy who is trying to run a course for discipleship. And this morning he sent him this link that is stating that the book of James is supposed to actually be the book of Jacob according to the Greek and Hebrew. We both read it and it just creates confusion. 😕

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. -1 Corinthians 14:33

Has anyone else come across something like this before?

Hope I posted this in the right spot!

day 104 bible reading challenge today, brought this verse into rememberance, John 10: 4-5 (kjv)  i do not understand all the who-haw about the greek and hebrew and this and that, blah blah blah! is it God's word? that's all that matters. if it doesn't sound like God's word it isn't God's word! ask them are you one of God's sheep? the pharisees will make you feel stupid because you believe as a child in your Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! pray that they may be able to hear his voice as you do! praise the Lord!

sorry, i get a little agitated about this subject! all glory to God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour!

Amen sister!!! His sheep am I! They are not tearing down our faith one bit! I know that Gods word is the Kjv, we know it to be true and will not bend on that. And Praise the Lord my husband stood for truth last night even though he was being attacked, they wouldn’t even hear him out really. Won’t even look at the pamphlets that we have nothing. This link that was sent to my husband is just not something someone has sent us before so he wanted me to post it on here because we have never heard of the book of James supposed to be called the book of Jacob...as I said it just creates confusion and we reject it. He was telling them to open their bibles with him and they wouldn’t even do it. He’s the only one who brought a Bible with him. It got pretty intense I guess. 

Love those verses btw! Thank you! I guess we are still young in the Lord we  drifted for a while and now have been brought back by the grace of God! Praise the Lord!!!

By the grace of God he said what he said. He was praying the whole time asking for help, And the Lord is always faithful! 😄

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. -Isaiah 41:10

4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

 

Everyone who runs to the Greek and Hebrew to try and correct the KJB are just searching for cop outs to not have a perfect standard that's written in English... The book of James is called James because James was the one who wrote it and James was his name... If God wanted to name it Jacob He would have had someone named Jacob write and put it in the KJB... I understand that James in Hebrew is Jacob, and possibly a nickname in English as well, but to say the KJB is in error because man says the book of James should be called the book of Jacob is outrageously stupid and they are reaching very hard...

 

Side-Note: Speaking of James meaning Jacob, King James Bible is also King Jacob Bible, Jacob being Israel. So in essence it's the King Israel Bible 🙂! Praise the Lord for His goodness!

Amen brother!! He sent a bunch of videos of David Daniels to his boss because he likes to argue the Greek, and Praise the Lord he watched them and is even interested in looking into him more!! Praying that his heart be softened and that he will get rid of his pride and that the Lord will remove the veil from his eyes! Thanks for the scriptures brother! God is good! 😄🙏 and more seeds have been planted!! 

Very good side note too! 👍 Praise the Lord!

Isaiah 41:10 is almost quoted word for word in the hymn "How Firm a Foundation". It's a good hymn.
