Only one "book" will ever matter in regard to the transition of any human from mortal physical life to immortal spirit life. It is the only truly Holy, or Hallowed "Book".
The Most Important Holy Book in the World
What is a "book"? It can be almost anything—an ancient silicon-based clay tablet, an "e-book" on a "tablet" computer containing silicon-based semi-conductor chips; a hard-bound or leather-bound collection of "paper" made from papyrus; a soft-bound collection of paper made from wood-chip pulp called a "paperback"—even though they usually also have a paper front—a "double-roll" or scroll of parchment made from parched animal skin; or imitation "parchment" made from paper; and on and on. Whatever can be used as a means of holding retrievable and viewable information can be considered a "book".
A brief viewable religious "message" might be called a letter, or "epistle", or bulletin, or "papal bull" (supposedly because of the name of a special seal, not the contents—you should read some of them). The word "Bible" is nothing more than a term for "books " taken from the Greek word "biblia" βιβλία. If a brief letter to a group of church members is preserved with other such letters, or epistles, and becomes known as "scripture", even though "scripture" only means the "inscription" of viewable words on some form of transmission, then a very short letter apparently qualifies to be called a "book" of the Bible—a book of a book of books.
A bound collection of "religious" writings, or book of scriptures should not be considered "holy", or "hallowed", or "Eloh'd" and worthy of supernatural shielding by the Elohim, or an excuse for human warfare to "defend" it simply because the words "Holy Bible" have been imprinted on its cover.
It is astounding that so many humans virtually worship the physical "Bibles" or "Holy Books" that they have been told are the "Word of God", even though they have never really read or understood many of the so-called "words of God" they are willing to go to war to protect. Countless atrocities have been advocated or perpetrated by individuals claiming that the "Bible" inspired them to imitate or emulate what they think was authorized or sanctioned by God thousands of years ago—because "it's in the Bible".
Whatever the first records written by Adam, or Eve looked like--they were preserved with the beginning of an accumulation of genealogical records that were collected and passed on in some form or another through an unbroken chain of descent until the purpose of the 4,000 year-long record of descent was finalized and "fulfilled" at the birth of Jesus, or Yahshua of Nazareth.
It is obvious that virtually all of the personal eyewitness reports passed from generation to generation by genetically related individuals from the "time" of Adam to the "time" of Moses were not written by Moses--unless his personality kept changing as he "re-wrote" the many "first person accounts" which are included in the continuing collection which had finally been entrusted to his brother Aaron and the Elders of Israel. Especially touching is the emotional record of the reunion of Joseph with his eleven brothers after he had been elevated to the second-highest level of power in Egypt. Genesis—chapters 41 through 45.
44:14 And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there; and they fell before him on the ground.
44:15 And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that you have done? know you not that such a man as I can certainly divine?
44:16 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? What shall we speak? Or how shall we clear ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants. Behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.
44:17 And he said, God forbid that I should do so; but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace unto your father.
44:18 Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let your servant, I pray you, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not your anger burn against your servant; for you are even as Pharaoh.
44:19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have you a father, or a brother?
44:20 And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.
44:21 And you said unto your servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.
44:22 And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father; for if he should leave his father, his father would die.
44:23 And you said unto your servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, you shall see my face no more.
44:24 And it came to pass when we came up unto your servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.
44:25 And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.
44:26 And we said, We cannot go down. If our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down; for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.
44:27 And your servant my father said unto us, You know that my wife bore me two sons;
44:28 And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since;
44:29 And if you take this also from me, and mischief befall him, you shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
44:30 Now therefore when I come to your servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;
44:31 It shall come to pass, when he sees that the lad is not with us, that he will die; and your servants shall bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to the grave.
44:32 For your servant became guarantor for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto you, then I shall bear the blame to my father forever.
44:33 Now therefore, I pray you, let your servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.
44:34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest perhaps I see the evil that shall come on my father.
45:1 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.
45:2 And he wept aloud; and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.
45:3 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.
45:4 And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.
45:5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here; for God did send me before you to preserve life.
45:6 For these two years has the famine been in the land; and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earring nor harvest.
45:7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
45:8 So now it was not you that sent me here, but God; and he has made me a "father" to Pharaoh, and Lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
45:9 Haste you, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus says your son Joseph, God has made me Lord of all Egypt. Come down unto me, tarry not;
45:10 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near unto me, you, and your children, and your children's children, and your flocks, and your herds, and all that you have;
45:11 And there will I nourish you; for yet there are five years of famine; lest you, and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty.
45:12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks unto you.
45:13 And you shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that you have seen; and you shall haste and bring down my father here.
45:14 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck.
45:15 Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them; and after that his brethren talked with him.
45:16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren are come; and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants.
In spite of the genuine importance of the line of custody of the first-person records from Adam to Moses, it is evident that no formation or "final edition" of a "Bible" has ever been considered "holy" or worthy of "hallowing" by GOD since He has never bothered to personally protect any physical version of any Bible on Earth. If He has—where is it?
GOD can protect the original of anything He has created, or anyone else has "created", within His own mind. GOD's limitless primary mind is where everything original originates, whether GOD is personally doing the creating, or whether others are "creating" with the creativity GOD has programmed into their mental "spirits".
A physical transcription or manuscript of something GOD, or God, His Angel has said to a prophet is not what is an "original" of "GOD's word". The words that originated in GOD's mind are what is the "original". And if He has said something, He can remember exactly and precisely what He said, even if the message was garbled when it was transcribed onto an "original manuscript".
It has never been necessary to preserve a physical transcription of anything GOD has ever spoken to any human. Any "words of GOD" which He has intended to be transmitted in written form are preserved and protected in the primary conscious "mind" of GOD, which is His "Holy Spirit".
Nevertheless, if there is a physical written transcription of any words GOD, or God, His Angel has said, or any other person has said, GOD can preserve a spirit replica or "atomic pattern" of it in His Spirit memory and order His Spirit to generate any number of perfect atomic replicas any time He chooses to do so. The perfect atomic replication of a very famous "artifact" precisely as it was at the time it was first generated, and its subsequent atomic "aging", causing it to appear to have been originated much later, will be presented as proof of this assertion in a future publication.
It is an indisputable fact that many of the so-called "scriptures" in the "Bible", however you define "Bible", might as well be called "scribblings" considering the amount of useful information they transmit—which is often none. One might as well be attempting to read a doctor's scribbled prescription for a drug. As doctors' prescriptions begin to be transmitted more frequently by "digital means" it will probably become necessary to create an "app" that will achieve the same degree of virtually unreadable encryption normally found in the average hand-scribbled prescription.
I have read, or tried to read many hundreds of books—most of them only partially before moving on to something more interesting. Too often I move on to something less interesting, causing me to keep moving on. Some of those books may have been worth re-reading, or exploring if I had been able to "find" the time to do so. Some haven't been worth the time it took to learn that I was wasting my time learning I was wasting my time. As Solomon said about 3,000 years ago:
12:11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished; of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear GOD, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man.
12:14 For GOD shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
That closing statement by Jesus' cousin John (after some comments by John's editors) seems to have been taken as a challenge by many "Christian authors" who appear to be trying to fill the World with their boring re-hashed versions of what they think Jesus did and taught. Am I one of them? Time will tell.
Just remember this—there is no need for any human authors to try to fill the World with books about what they think Jesus did during a three-year sliver of his life. Our human World, and all of the "worlds" that have preceded it on Earth, have always been filled and overflowing with the things which the Angel of the LORD, who became Jesus, has done.
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with GOD.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:1 GOD, who at various times and in diverse manners spoke in time past unto the "fathers" by the prophets,
1:2 Has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds;
1:3 Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
1:4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
1:5 For unto which of the angels [the other twenty-four "Elder" Elohim angels] said He at any time, You are my Son. This day have I begotten you [ordered His Spirit to begin the construction of the mortal body His Angel would live and die in]? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
1:6 And again, when He brings in the Firstborn into the World, He says, And let all the angels of GOD worship him.
1:7 And of the angels He says, [He] who makes his [the Lord's or Son's] angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire;
1:8 Unto the Son He says, Your Throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your Kingdom.
1:9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity [during the first 4,000 years of human history]; therefore GOD, even your GOD, has anointed you [made you the "Anointed One"—the Messiah/Christ] with the oil of gladness above your fellows [above the exclusive creating team of Elohim angels].
1:10 And, You, Lord, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the Earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands.
104:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with honor and majesty.
104:2 Who cover yourself with light as with a garment; who stretch out the heavens like a curtain;
104:3 Who lays the beams of his chambers in the waters; who makes the clouds his chariot; who walks upon the wings of the wind;
104:4 Who makes his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire.
7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days [GOD, the Unlimited] did sit ["in Person" rather than having His Angel appear in His place], whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head like the pure wool. His Throne was like the fiery flame, and His wheels as burning fire.
7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. Thousand thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The judgment was set, and the books were opened.
7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the "horn" spoke. I beheld even till the "Beast" was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
7:12 As concerning the rest of the "beasts", they had their dominion taken away; yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought him near before Him.
7:14 And there was given him [the Son of Man] dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
1 CORINTHIANS 14:33
14:33 For GOD is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
GOD is not the author, or originator of confusion. Throughout the ages, the Earth, in all of its varying formations, and everything that has ever been created on it by GOD, have all proven this beyond any doubt. It is not GOD who has created the global confusion of religions and governmental incompetence in evidence around the World. GOD makes infinite complexity look simple "on the surface". Humans—sometimes with the help of certain angels—make what was intended by GOD to be simple enough for humans to understand, look as if it is infinitely complex—especially in the realms of religion and government.
The fact that so much of what is called the "Bible" appears to have been written by very confused authors should be evidence enough that GOD was not helping them write or preserve the parts that are confusing. Some parts of the Bible are worth re-reading and exploring for new meaning over and over. Some parts aren't worth exploring, or even reading once. Yet many major "Churches" seem to preach that the vast majority of all human beings have missed out on any opportunity for a pleasurable eternal life in Heaven and will be consigned to a horrific eternal life in Hell because they didn't have access to the few "passages of scripture" that are read in the churches that believe that.
If anyone tells you that their God requires belief in something or someone most humans have never been aware of, or been able to know about, that person and their concept of God should not be taken seriously. It is completely nonsensical to believe that any human has ever been at risk of missing out on full participation in eternal immortal life because of inability to access an almost insignificant amount of written, or spoken information during his or her brief mortal life.
The simplest logic and awareness of human history should make it clear that GOD has never expected anyone to learn "the only path to salvation" from anything written in a physical book. If GOD did have a plan requiring almost everyone, or anyone to learn "the Way" from human writings alone, He would have made those writings, or "scriptures" available to every human being who has ever lived, and ensured that all of us were born literate and capable of understanding exactly what those scriptures were saying. But He hasn't done that. So it should be clear that what is found in anyone's favorite "Bible" is not important enough to GOD that He has felt it necessary to share it in written, or "scriptural" form with everyone throughout human history.
The Most Important Holy Book in the World
There is only one "book" that will ever matter in regard to the transition of any human from mortal physical life to immortal spirit life. That "book" cannot be purchased or even seen by any human. It is the only truly Holy, or Hallowed "Book". And it is not the universal "Book of Life" which is the entire database of every human created by the Spirit of GOD. It is called "the Lamb's Book of Life".
The universal "Book of Life " contains the infinite amount of data utilized by the Spirit of GOD during the life-long "on-location" creation and development of the physical body and mental "spirit" of every new human—and other creatures. It contains whatever detailed individual history is deemed by GOD to be important enough for preservation, which is acquired through the automated Spirit-monitoring of every human, and every other creature which GOD might want to reconstruct in some form or another after its physical death.
139:12 Yes, the darkness hides not from you; but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to you.
139:13 For you have possessed my reins; you have covered me in my mother's womb.
139:14 I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
139:15 My substance was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the low parts of the "Earth" [meaning his mother].
139:16 Your eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in your Book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Though the automated Spirit of God constructs the body of every physical creature utilizing the infinite amount of pre-programmed data required to do so, and then continues to monitor and control its physical development throughout every second of its life—it does not mean that GOD considers an unborn fetus "under construction" to be a "living soul". Even after Adam's symbolic clay prototype body was instantaneously transformed into a pre-designed flesh and blood body, Adam was not considered a "living soul" until his "birth" from "Mother Earth" and he began breathing "on his own".
2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
2:7 And the Lord God formed Man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Man became a living soul.
2:8 And the Lord God planted a Garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
The entire "unedited" universal Book of Life will always be available to GOD, the Father as part of His own infinite memory bank for His personal use throughout eternity. But since the day Adam and Eve were created, the Angel of the LORD has had access to and control of a special edition of the universal Book of Life which has the purpose of preserving any personal judgments made by the Angel of the LORD in regard to any human who has lived throughout human history, and who has been personally chosen by the Lord for inclusion in the still future "First Resurrection" to eternal life.
That resurrection will occur at the "return" of the Messiah, or Christ and the commencement of the 1,000 year-long Millennial Kingdom of GOD on Earth. And the period during which humans have been in consideration for inclusion in that "better resurrection" did not begin with Jesus' ministry in 27 AD, or the beginning of "modern" Protestantism, contrary to what many seem to believe. It began with, and has continued from the "foundation" or beginning of the human World.
11:32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephtha; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets;
11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.
11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again; and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection;
11:36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yes, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword; they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
11:38 (Of whom the World was not worthy.) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the Earth.
11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise;
11:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they, without us, should not be made perfect. [everyone chosen to be included in the Lamb's Book of Life "BC" will be resurrected along with all included since "BC" in the better First Resurrection.]
20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them; and I saw the [once again living] souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of GOD, and which had not worshipped the Beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
20:5 (But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.) This is the First Resurrection.
20:6 Blessed and holy is he that has part in the First Resurrection. On such, the "second death" [eternal death] has no power; but they shall be priests of GOD and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
5:5 And one of the Elders says unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book [of End-Time prophecy], and to loose the seven seals thereof.
5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the Throne and of the four "beasts", [angels revealing their administrative authorities over all species by a symbolic embodiment which John could barely describe] and in the midst of the Elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven "eyes", which are the seven Spirits of GOD sent forth into all the Earth [this ability to generate, in Heaven, a fully dimensional and interactive replication of any defined location on Earth, complete with any current "life" on it, will be explained in due time. Its points of infinitely adjustable control are symbolized by the "Star of David", plus a single altitude point].
5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne.
5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four "beasts" and four and twenty Elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of aromatic incense, which are [symbolic of] the prayers of saints.
5:9 And they [the human saints (those who believe in the Messiah or Christ) still alive on Earth and praying] sung a new song [in their prayers], saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof; for you were slain, and have redeemed us to GOD by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10 And have made us unto our GOD, kings and priests; and we shall reign on the Earth.
5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the Throne and the "beasts" and the Elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
5:13 And every creature which is in Heaven, and on the Earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and families, and people, and tongues, stood before the Throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb.
7:11 And all the angels stood round about the Throne, and about the Elders and the four "beasts", and fell before the Throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
7:12 Saying, Amen. Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
7:13 And one of the Elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and from where came they?
7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
7:15 Therefore are they before the Throne of God, and serve him day and night in his Temple; and he that sits on the Throne shall dwell among them.
7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the Throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and GOD shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
21:22 And I saw no Temple therein [the New Jerusalem]; for the LORD, GOD Almighty, and the Lamb are the Temple of it.
21:23 And the City had no need of the Sun, neither of the Moon, to shine in it; for the glory of GOD did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it; and the kings of the Earth do bring their glory and honor into it.
21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
From the foundation, or beginning of our human World, to the present time and into the future, any humans who have been or will be conditionally chosen for inclusion in the First Resurrection may have to be symbolically "blotted", or "blotched", or "blocked", or "blacked" out of the Lamb's Book of Life if, while still alive, any fail to remain sufficiently faithful to the Angel of the LORD, who was the "Lamb of GOD" in the form of the mortal human Jesus, or Yahshua of Nazareth.
32:32 Yet now, if you will forgive their sin...; and if not, blot me, I pray you, out of your Book which you have written.
32:33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever has sinned against me, him will I blot out of my Book.
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the Book of the Living, and not be written with the righteous.
1 KINGS 9:1-9
9:1 And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the House of the Lord [the Jerusalem Temple], and the King's House, and all Solomon's desire which he was pleased to do,
9:2 That the Lord appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.
9:3 And the Lord said unto him, I have heard your prayer and your supplication, that you have made before me: I have hallowed this House, which you have built, to put my name there for ever; and my eyes and my heart [mind] shall be there perpetually.
9:4 And if you will walk before me, as David your father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep my statutes and my judgments:
9:5 Then I will establish the throne of your kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David your father, saying, There shall not fail you a man upon the throne of Israel.
9:6 But if you shall at all turn from following me, you or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:
9:7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this House, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:
9:8 And at this House, which is high, every one that passes by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why has the Lord done thus unto this land, and to this House?
9:9 And they shall answer, Because they forsook the Lord their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore has the Lord brought upon them all this evil.
7:5 For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor;
7:6 If you oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:
7:7 Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.
16:10 And it shall come to pass, when you shall show this people all these words, and they shall say unto you, Wherefore has the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?
16:11 Then shall you say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, says the Lord, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law;
16:12 And you have done worse than your fathers; [committing the sins of the fathers] for, behold, you walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not listen unto me:
16:13 Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that you know not, neither you nor your fathers; and there shall you serve other gods day and night; where I will not show you favor.
11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness: otherwise you also shall be cut off.
3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
3:5 He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the [Lamb's] Book of Life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before His angels [primarily the Elohim Elders].
13:4 And they worshipped the Dragon which gave power unto the Beast: and they worshipped the Beast, saying, Who is like unto the Beast? Who is able to make war with him?
13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against GOD, to blaspheme His name, and His Tabernacle, and them that dwell in Heaven.
13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all families, and tongues, and nations.
13:8 And all that dwell upon the Earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb [who was] "slain" [in the symbolic sacrificing of lambs] from the foundation of the World.
Adam and Eve were the first to see the symbolic sacrificing of lambs as a vivid example of what God could have done to them for allowing Satan to deceive them.
3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them
1 PETER 1:19-20
1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1:20 Who truly was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
1:3 Blessed be the GOD and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places in Christ:
1:4 According as He has chosen us in Him [self] before the foundation of the World, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love:
1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself:
1:10 That in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in Heaven, and which are on Earth; even in him:
1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will:
Some have reached the absurd and irrational conclusion that all who will eventually be found "written in the Lamb's Book of Life" were somehow already "written" in that book before the "foundation of the World" because they were "fore-known" personally as individuals, and "predestinated" to be "saved" as Protestants before Adam and Eve, or Jesus lived as humans.
The scriptures say that the Angel of the Lord, the "Lamb", has been choosing individuals throughout human history whom he has decided are worthy of inclusion in the First Resurrection in accordance with the plan of salvation designed before the foundation of the world which includes aspects which have been pictured symbolically by the well-regulated sacrificing, roasting, and eating of lambs at specified times and locations on Earth—starting with the evening of the original Passover before the Exodus began the next evening.
None who have been conditionally listed for inclusion in the First Resurrection but were "blotted" or "blocked" out of the Lamb's Book of Life for some reason, will have lost all hope of eternal life. They will almost certainly be included in the General Resurrection and Final Judgment following the 1,000 year Millennial Kingdom period. But they will have lost out on 1,000 years of spirit life at the level the Lamb, himself enjoys.
20:5 (But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.) This is the First Resurrection.
20:6 Blessed and holy is he that has part in the First Resurrection: on such the second death [eternal death] has no power, but they shall be priests of GOD and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
The Angel of the Lord, also known as the Messiah, the Christ, and the Lamb of GOD, is the Being created by GOD, the Father to judge all humans in due time. But many, since the time of Adam and Eve, including Adam and Eve, have been judged already and are "written" indelibly in the Lamb's Book of Life—the only "Book" worthy of being called Holy because it contains the metaphorical "second-birth certificates" of all who will be "born again" as perfected spirit versions of themselves at the return of the One who will oversee that literally glorious event.
8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of GOD, they are the sons [and daughters] of GOD.
8:15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of "sonship", whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
8:16 The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of GOD:
8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of GOD, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons [and daughters—or children] of GOD.
It should be clear by now, to any of you who have been reading what has been presented on this website, that you will not be expected to believe that every word of any "Bible" is the "inspired word of GOD"—because there isn't the slightest reason to believe such a notion. Just because the ancient "scriptures" or scribblings of someone have survived for hundreds or thousands of years in countless forms of transmission and are finally professionally printed in a fancy leather-bound book, it does not mean that any of those "scriptures" deserved to survive.
Most people who take religion seriously should have realized by now that only a very small portion of whatever Bible they use conveys useful information—even those who have been told that every word of "scripture" in their favorite Bible is holy and sacred and inspired by GOD. Yet, it should also be clear that I believe that the biblical scriptures I attempt to explain, are worthy of deep respect, and full belief in their validity and inspired origin.
One might reasonably say that the "Bible" is packed with incomprehensible, and thus unuseful words and phrases. Does that mean we should just disregard all of the "balderdash" and reduce the useful "essence" of the Bible to a four-page tract? No. "God forbid." The Bible is like the legendary "gold mine", or whatever type of "mine" one acquires valuable elements or minerals from. You'll have to do some work with your own reasoning mind to understand and appreciate the valuable "revelations" that are hidden within what often seems like a mountain of "scriptural" nonsense.
I have mentioned that I hope to publish my first book with the title Xrayzr Revelations. . .the first 4,000 years. What will be made available is not something you need to purchase but it will enable you to have a relatively inexpensive simplified "King James" version you can write notes in, creating your own "helps" that you can understand. It seems to me that most Bible "helps" are confusing because of the appearance and miniaturization of the type, and that they become almost unusable hindrances cluttering the pages and preventing a person from concentrating on the scriptures.
I will not be selling the proposed publication or anything else from this website—but future publications should be easily available for purchase from major "online" book sellers. If you have no "intellectual", or emotional attachment to the "King James" version, or have an aversion to that version and prefer a "paraphrased" or "reworded" version that you think is more accurate and more easily understood—then "go for it".
Whatever form of "Bible" you prefer will probably give you access to a reasonably accurate representation of the original manuscripts which GOD does not seem to think we need for purposes of comparison. There really is no substantial difference between "Catholic", or "Orthodox", or "Protestant" Bibles, or "Hebrew" Bibles and the so-called "Old Testament".
No one from those major theological affiliations should assume that their religious group alone has the one and only true form of "GOD's word", or Bible. Nor should any of them fear missing out on anything necessary for inclusion in the "First Resurrection". The Lamb's Book of Life has been "open for business" since Adam and Eve were created, and it is almost certain that they were the first to be "written" in the most important Holy Book in the new human World, and in our "old" World.
In a separate sub-page I will be listing the "books" generally included in the "Bibles" of Judaism, Catholicism, and the numerous Orthodox, and Protestant forms of Christianity. There is no reason to battle over the supposed "purity" of any of the "books" found in any of those "Bibles".
It is not written words that reveal the indescribable genius of GOD—it is the entire World and every form or specie of "creature" on Earth. Obviously, no single creature can exhibit the genius of GOD in the way it thinks or acts--not even His Angel, the Lord. But all creatures exhibit, in their capability to think and act in accordance with their GOD-given instincts, many "facets" that reflect the brilliance of GOD and His unlimited love of infinite diversity.
Look for additions to this area of the Xrayzr Revelations website in the near future.
