PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

           OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Ps. 33:11

For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. Ps. 100:5

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. Ps. 119:89

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Is. 40:8

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mt. 24:35

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. I Pet. 1:25

"But, when the fulness of time drew near, that the Sun of righteousness, the Son of God should come into the world, whom God ordained to be a reconciliation through faith in his blood, not of the Jew only, but also of the Greek, yea, of all them that were scattered abroad; then lo, it pleased the Lord to stir up the spirit of a Greek Prince (Greek for descent and language) even of Ptolemy Philadelph King of Egypt, to procure the translating of the Book of God out of Hebrew into Greek. This is the translation of the Seventy Interpreters, commonly so called, which prepared the way for our Saviour among the Gentiles by written preaching, as Saint John Baptist did among the Jews by vocal." (1611 KJV Translators Preface)

CHURCH AGE

As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever. - Is. 59:21

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. - Rev. 12:17

THE MILLENNIUM (end)

He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. - Jn.12:48

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in this book, - Rev.22.:18-19    

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

Bible Revision is replacing the Greek Received Text (as represented in the King James Bible) with the Gnostic Alexandrian Greek Revised Text (as represented by all bible versions since the KJV). See: Another Bible, Another Gospel*; The Legacy of Westcott & Hort*

Satan's next plan of attack concerning Scripture is (1) to further discredit the King James Version by attributing its translation to occultists, (2) to discredit the Byzantine Greek manuscripts that are its foundation by claiming that the original manuscripts were written in Syriac rather than Greek and (3) to create the misconception that the version which most accurately reflects the Textus Receptus was the Syriac Peshitto. Most "King James Version defenders" promote the corrupt Syriac Peshitto as based on the Textus Receptus, and heretical medieval sects such as the Celtic Church and the Albigenses/Cathari, as preserving the Textus Receptus.  Presently, there are heretical movements using the Syriac Peshitto along with other Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts for the translation of Semitic New Testaments in place of the Greek Text. (See: The Semitic New Testament*)

        PRE-FLOOD ERA

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? - Gen 3:1

        OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

    And Jeremiah commanded Baruch, saying, I am shut up; I cannot go into the house of the LORD: Therefore go thou, and read in the roll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of the LORD in the ears of the people in the LORD'S house upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities. It may be they will present their supplication before the LORD, and will return every one from his evil way: for great is the anger and the fury that the LORD hath pronounced against this people. And Baruch the son of Neriah did according to all that Jeremiah the prophet commanded him, reading in the book the words of the LORD in the LORD'S house. And it came to pass in the fifth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, in the ninth month, that they proclaimed a fast before the LORD to all the people in Jerusalem, and to all the people that came from the cities of Judah unto Jerusalem. Then read Baruch in the book the words of Jeremiah in the house of the LORD, in the chamber of Gemariah the son of Shaphan the scribe, in the higher court, at the entry of the new gate of the LORD'S house, in the ears of all the people.

    Now it came to pass, when they had heard all the words, they were afraid both one and other, and said unto Baruch, We will surely tell the king of all these words... Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him. And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth. - Jer. 36:5-10,16, 22-24

And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias; And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: - Matt. 1:11

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things that are written in this book, - Rev.22.:19

"Therefore the word of God being set forth in Greek, becometh hereby like a candle set upon a candlestick, which giveth light to all that are in the house, or like a proclamation sounded forth in the market place, which most men presently take knowledge of; and therefore that language was fittest to contain the Scriptures, both for the first Preachers of the Gospel to appeal unto for witness, and for the learners also of those times to make search and trial by. It is certain, that that Translation was not so sound and so perfect, but it needed in many places correction; and who had been so sufficient for this work as the Apostles or Apostolic men? Yet it seemed good to the holy Ghost and to them, to take that which they found, (the same being for the greatest part true and sufficient) rather than making a new, in that new world and green age of the Church, to expose themselves to many exceptions and cavillations, as though they made a Translations to serve their own turn, and therefore bearing a witness to themselves, their witness not to be regarded. This may be supposed to be some cause, why the Translation of the Seventy was allowed to pass for current. Notwithstanding, though it was commended generally, yet it did not fully content the learned, no not of the Jews." (1611 KJV Translators Preface)

        CHURCH AGE

 

“The most influential center relating to the corruption of the Biblical text was the catechetical ‘School’ at Alexandria, Egypt… Alexandria was a city with a large Jewish population. It was also a center of Greek (Platonic) philosophy… The famous Jewish philosopher of Alexandria, Philo, (20 B.C.-42 A.D.), wedded the teachings of Plato (427-347 B.C.) to the Old Testament. Christians applied the methods of Philo the New Testament, giving the heresy of Gnosticism. Alexandria was a center of Gnosticism—Basilides (c.125 A.D.) and Valentinus (120-160 A.D.) were Alexandrian Gnostics.” – Robert Sargent, Landmarks of English Bible Manuscript Evidence - 199:122

"...William T. Smedley writes. 'It will eventually be proved that the whole scheme of the Authorized Version of the Bible was Francis Bacon's." (Manly P. Hall) - 105:clxvi

"Dee's disciple, Robert Fludd, was the chief proponent of Rosicrucianism in England, and Fludd along with Sir Francis Bacon and others were commissioned by King James I,...to produce an English translation of the Holy Bible." (Dennis Cuddy) - 16:11 - (Note: Cuddy's book was printed by Southwest Radio Church ministry of Noah Hutchings who promotes the King James Bible)

"...for study you should use almost any modern translation rather than the KJV" (Gordon Fee) - 190:34

"...[Sir Francis] Bacon had written of concealing works in mercury [to preserve texts]..." - 281:31

"The eighteenth-century philosophes regarded Gnosticism as a counter tradition and wielded it as a weapon in their outflanking tactics to overthrow the received tradition." - 197:533

"The Bible...having its origin in this same Ancient Wisdom or Gnosis... (is) sadly mutilated and garbled in our authorized version..." - 192:81

    "The Black Virgin of Boulogne-sur-Mer illustrates the special relationship linking Isis to Merovingian France. In AD 633, during the reign of Dagobert I, king of all France, who may have been attending Sunday Mass there all the time, a ship sailed into the harbour, without oars or sails, containing nothing but a statue, three feet high, of the Black Virgin and a copy of the Gospels in Syriac. These last would almost certainly have been the version known as 'The Gospel of the Mixed', based on the Diatessaron of the second-century Gnostic, Tatian...
    "Who is the invisible helmsman of the barque of Isis? The Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion has exactly this title, Nautonnier." - 272:68

"There are, I fear still more serious differences between us on the subject of authority and especially the authority of the Bible . . . If this primary objection were removed, and I could feel our differences to be only of degree, I should still hesitate to take part in the proposed scheme. It is surely likely to bring on a crisis; and that I cannot think desirable on any account. The errors and prejudices, which we agree in wishing to remove, can surely be more wholesomely and also more effectually reached by individual efforts of an indirect kind than by combined open assault. At present very many orthodox but rational men are being unawares acted upon by influences which will assuredly bear good fruit in due time if is allowed to go on quietly; but I fear that a premature crisis would frighten back many into the merest traditionalism." 139:400, Vol. 1 

"It is well known that the Peshitto is mainly in agreement with the traditional text." (Dean John Burgon) - 194:130

"...the Syrian version may have been written with direct access to the original autographs themselves (Peter Ruckman)." 191:116

"The Peshitta Syriac version...also belong(s) to the Traditional family of the New Testament documents." (Edward Hills) - 193:121

"It is generally admitted that the Bible was translated from the original languages into Syrian about 150 A.D. This version is known as the Peshitto (the correct or simple)..." (David Otis Fuller) - 187:197-8

"...the Peshitta...manuscripts (now numbering over 259) are in line with the Received Text'" (Jack Moorman) - 182:30

"Saint Columba had brought the ORIGINAL CHRISTIAN MESSAGE (preserved by the Syrian bishop Nestorius) into Ireland and Scotland from the Middle East..." (HRH Prince Michael of Albany) - 92:29-30

"And as there were really only two Bibles - the official version of Rome, and the Received Text - we may safely conclude that the Gallic (or French) Bible, as well as the Celtic (or British), were translations based on the Received Text " (David Otis Fuller) - 187:203

"...The Italic Church in Northern Italy...(t)he Gallic Church of Southern France... (t)he Celtic Church in Great Britain used the Received Text...- why? Because...they had the originals right there in their hands, and they based it on that which was pure, accurate, and preserved by God. The pre-Waldensian churches [and] (t)he Waldensians...used the Received Text." (D.A. Waite) - 188:45-6

"...the Old Latin, the Syriac, the Coptic, the Ethiopic, and scores of others... provide witnesses to the correct readings of the New Testament." (Gail Riplinger) - 189:470

"We are taking the New King James Version - the 'boilerplate' you might say - and changing it everywhere it is different than the Septuagint. The result will be indeed a Septuagint translation." [Orthodox Study Bible] - 577

 

"...Codices Sinaiticus and Vaticanus, both from the fourth century; and Codice Alexandrinus (a Byzantine text in the gospels), from the fifth century, all...have the Greek version as their Old Testament text... [T]o this day, the LXX is regarded as the inspired, authoritative version of the Old Testament in the Eastern Church..." - 578:154-56

 

"There are some readings of the LXX which agree with that of the Dead Sea Scrolls, but not that of the Masoretic text. ...the earliest manuscript of the Masoretic text is dated 895 A.D. while the earliest manuscript of the LXX is dated at 350 A.D.... The LXX is the official Old Testament version of The Holy Orthodox Greek Catholic Church." - 199:133-34

"Jesus' primary tongue was Aramaic; his teachings come to us only in a GREEK TRANSLATION, To some this reality can be threatening." (Gordon Fee) - 190:114

"The earliest existing copies of the Gospels were written in Greek, but maintained 46 words of Aramaic, which some scholars feel point back to an ARAMAIC ORIGINAL before the Greek, [Rocco] Ericco president of the Noohra Foundation... said." - 185

"Several Semitic versions of the New Testament books have come down to us which may have some claim to being descendants of the ORIGINAL SEMITIC TEXT... These include...the Old Syriac Aramaic version of the four Gospels; The Peshitta Aramaic New Testament and the Crawford Aramaic version of Revelation." (James Trimm, Society for the Advancement of Nazarene Judaism) - 186

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. - Rev. 22:18-19

Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us. II Tim. 1:13,14

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. - I Tim. 6:3-5

OLD TESTAMENT

Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon

CHURCH AGE

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which 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: - II Tim. 3:15-16  

"The New Testament Books were recorded under inspiration between 50 A.D. (probably Matthew) and 95 A.D. (The Revelation).

"The great mark of canonicity was apostolicity. The apostles were eye witnesses. Luke 1:2; I John 1:3; II Peter 1:15; also Acts 2:42...

"Thus we may conclude that, like the Old Testament, the Books of the New Testament were 'canonized' as they were written and circulated.

"The need for an 'official' collection of Books came about for the following reasons:

  1. The rise of heresy (Judaism and Gnosticism) required the use of defined Scriptures to contend for the faith.

  2. The formation of truncated canons by Judaistic sects (pro-Petrine, anti-Pauline), and the canon of the gnostic Marcion of Sinope (c.140 A.D.) who countered Judaism by compiling a New Testament consisting of parts of Luke and 10 Pauline epistles.

  3. Persecution. The emperor Diocletian issued an edict in 303 A.D. ordering the burning of the Christian Scriptures. What were these Scriptures.

  4. The existence of non-canonical writings, both noble (Luke 1:1) and ignoble (II Thessalonians 2:2 cf. 3:17)...

"The ecumenical Council of Nicea (325 A.D.) refers to 'the canon.'

"The Synod of Laodicea (363 A.D.) forbade the reading of non-canonical Books, thus indicating that by this time the New Testament canon was finished.

"Apparently none of these early councils thought it necessary to list the Books which comprised the sacred canon, indicating they were well-known and universally accepted by churches and Christians.

"The first complete listing of the 27 New Testament Books was given by Athanasius in an Easter letter written in 367 A.D. (This does not mean the canon was not settled earlier--it is the earliest list known!) - 199:77-78

    TRIBULATION / GREAT TRIBULATION

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: - Rev.22:18

MILLENNIUM (end)

If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. - Rev.22:19

And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. - Rev. 20:11-12

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

 

    The previously rejected Gnostic writings will first be added to the Biblical Canon of Scripture and then will be substituted for the Canon.  The Septuagint, an ancient Greek translation of the Old Testament which contained the Apocryphal books, is the basis for modern bible versions and also the Old Testament version of the Greek Orthodox Church. Eastern Orthodoxy, which will be the point of contact between apostate Christianity and Eastern religions, plans to publish an Orthodox Study Bible, based on the Septuagint. Release of this bible will coincide with the date the United Religions Organization assumes headship of the world's religions.

    The Dead Sea Scrolls are promoted by KJV-Only Defenders who claim they are a valuable discovery because the majority of the scrolls support the readings of the Hebrew Masoretic Text (although some support the Septuagint).  Not divulged are the Gnostic origins and orientation of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were discovered in 1947 near Qumran and represent the Essene community's Gnostic alternative to the traditional canon of Scripture.

 

        OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

"The Dead Sea Scrolls were most likely written by the Essenes during the period from about 200 B.C. to 68 C.E./A.D. The Essenes are mentioned by Josephus and in a few other sources, but not in the New testament. The Essenes were a strict Torah observant, Messianic, apocalyptic, baptist, wilderness, new covenant Jewish sect. They were led by a priest they called the 'Teacher of Righteousness,' who was opposed and possibly killed by the establishment priesthood in Jerusalem...

"The Essenes were a Jewish sect representing an esoteric aspect of Judaism, or Jewish mysticism. The Jewish mystics studied the Kabbalah, which taught belief in reincarnation, astrology, channeling, prophecy, soul travel, psychic development, and angels, and which organized itself around the Tree of Life." - 890

"...Jews in Alexandria, Egypt, began translating the Hebrew Old Testament into Greek (the Septuagint) hundreds of years before Christ. Because the earliest complete manuscripts we have of this version of the OT includes extra books called the Apocrypha, many believe that these books should be considered part of the OT canon even though they are not found in the Hebrew OT. In effect, some argue that we have two OT canons, the Hebrew canon of twenty-two books, often called the Palestinian canon, and the larger Greek or Alexandrian canon that includes the Apocrypha." - 891

        CHURCH AGE

 

“The Bible should be regarded symbolically as the ‘word of’ G-d’ with the identity of G-d being left to the conscience of the individual Mason. In this way the Bible becomes a symbol for G-d and a reminder that G-d speaks to man.” - 616

 

“The eighteenth-century philosophers regarded Gnosticism as a counter-tradition and wielded it as a weapon in their out-flanking tactics to overthrow the received tradition." - 197:533

 

“The 'New Gnosticism'...as with the ancient Gnostics, [maintains] the traditional canon of texts no longer has authority." - 197:548

 

“Had not the Christians burdened themselves with the 'Revelations' of a little nation, and accepted the Jehovah of Moses, the Gnostic ideas would never have been termed 'heresies."' - 195:155

 

Initiation for Prince of Rose Croix degree: "...The sacred word is lost; therefore it is impossible that we can give it to you..." - 610:163

 

Initiation for Master Mason's Degree: "...And as the Master's word is now lost, the first word spoken after the body [of Christ] is raised shall be a substitute for the Master's word so future generations shall find out the right one." - 610:36

 

"...the Jesus Seminar...plans to redefine the New Testament Canon... The authenticity of some New Testament books has come under renewed attack. One that will be closely scrutinized by the seminar is the Book of Revelation. The book's inclusion in the canon has been a matter of controversy almost from the beginning. Though it was widely regarded as scripture by the second century, it was later disputed by some church leaders. In the 16th century, Martin Luther criticized it as 'neither apostolic nor prophetic'." - 198:75

 

"The canon was determined for Roman Catholics at the Council of Trent in 1546 C.E.; it has never been determined for Protestants except by common consent and the action of some individual denominations." (Robert Funk) - 611:543

"Certainly many of the writings among the Dead Sea Scrolls reflect the views and teachings of the Essenes. The ruins found a mile away from Cave 1 at Qumran most certainly could have been from an Essenes community. Nevertheless, there are those who have come to different conclusions as to who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls and about the community at Qumran. One such scholar is Dr. Norman Golb, author of Who Wrote The Dead Sea Scrolls? Dr. Golb is a recognized authority on Qumran who believes that the Scrolls are the remains of the Jewish library located in Jerusalem. He contends that various scrolls were hidden in the wilderness to protect the Jerusalem Library from the Romans when they destroyed the Second Temple and the city in 70 AD. He also maintains that the city of Qumran was not the dwelling place of the Essenes, but was a fortress against the Romans. Dr. Golb makes a comparison between the structures at Qumran and the military rock fortress at Masada. He notes that according to Josephus, the Essenes were not limited to a single settlement, but were found in every city of Palestine." (Thomas Holland) - 744

 

N.B.: Dr. Norman Golb is on the faculty of the Rockefeller-funded University of Chicago as the first holder of the Ludwig Rosenberger Professorship in Jewish History and Civilization. In the early nineties Dr. Golb took a leading role in the freeing of the Dead Sea Scrolls for study by the scholarly community, and in organizing an international congress on the scrolls under the auspices of the Rockefeller-funded New York Academy of Sciences and the Oriental Institute. In 1919, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. funded The Oriental Institute as a laboratory for the study of the rise and development of ancient civilization.

"In an age of democracy, and in the spirit of total inclusion itself, the time has come to declassify mysteries, to erase the boundaries between esoteric and exoteric." - 177:29

"The Apocryphal writings, especially Enoch and Jubilees, mark a considerable development in the history of Kabbala." - 284:622

 

"...the Third Millennium Bible (based on the KJV-21) is following a trend to bring the apocryphal books back into use... The American Bible Society catalogue of Scriptural Resources lists at least nine different Bibles containing the Apocrypha." - 245:3

 

    "...the complete [Orthodox Study Bible will] be available for purchase...[s]ometime around the first of July, 2005...

    "The Old Testament of the Orthodox Church is that which it has been from the beginning, the Septuagint, that Greek version already in use when Christ came... Our translation of the Septuagint is essential for Orthodox Christians in America. Not only that, but we are making a Study Bible, with Orthodox notes throughout.... Is the LXX project a complete translation of the Septuagint into modern English?... You see as thorough a translation as that to be found anywhere. We are taking the New King James Version as a starting point -- 'boilerplate' you might say -- and changing it everywhere it is different from the Septuagint. The result will indeed be a Septuagint translation.

    "It has the so-called 'Apocryphal books'... in the order they are in the Septuagint... The following is a list of early draft translations from the LXX Old Testament...

"...one of the most beautiful poems of the Syriac literature [is] the 'Song of the Pearl' (Acts of Thomas 108-13)..." - 95:904

 

     "In our opinion, the Catholic Church never wanted its members to know about the true relationship between Jesus and Mary, which is why the Gnostic Gospels were not included in the New Testament and why most Christians do not even know they exist... The Council of Nicea, when it rejected the many Gnostic Gospels and voted to include only Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in the New Testament, had no divine mandate for this major act of censorship. They acted out of self-preservation, for by that time - the fourth century - the power of the Magdalene and her followers was already too widespread for the patriarchy to cope with.
    "According to that censored material, which was deliberately rejected to prevent the true picture from being known, Jesus gave the Magdalene the title of 'Apostle of the Apostles' and 'the Woman Who Knew All.' He said that she would be raised above all the other disciples and rule the forthcoming Kingdom of Light. As we have seen, he also called her Mary Lucifer.' - 'Mary the Lightbringer'..." - 242:261

 

"...'The Book of Love'...is attributed to St John the Divine, and is said to contain: 'sublime teachings, marvelous revelations, the most secret words confided by our Lord Jesus Christ to the beloved disciple. Their power would be such that all hatred, all anger, all jealousy would vanish from the hearts of men...' It is said that this book will be found, at a 'pre-ordained time by a predestined person'. Furthermore it states in 'The Secret of Mont-Segur', that this predestined person...will be 'UNDER THE SIGN OF THE DOVE'." - 258:7-8

"But the Scripture alone can not show the meanings within. Rabbinic hermeneutics could find a wealth of meaning in the subtlest details of the text, a characteristic that Kabbalistic writing took over. To be able to deal with Kabbalistic texts, and at least be conversant with the literary forms they take, and the references they make to material which their authors assumed 'everyone' would know, the student should at a minimum be at least marginally familiar with the following items...the Talmud (Mishnah and Gemara)... The Midrash, stemming from the same period as the Talmud, but more concerned with supplying context and elaboration of the Biblical text. Much legendary material is archived here... Rambam (Rabbi Moses ben Maimon or Maimonides)...wrote the first definitive compilation of Jewish law since Talmudic times, the Mishneh Torah, but for the student of Kabbalah it is the Guide for the Perplexed, Moreh Nebuchim, which is of most important. The system of philosophical mysticism which he explains there, and his comments on opposing systems, will give a good idea of the milieu in which Kabbalah came to prominence, and show a mystical alternative to Kabbalah which was not taken up by later generations directly, but did have enormous influence on later Kabbalists." (Kabbalah in English)

"Rejecting all of the Old Testament and parts of the New Testament, [Manichean heretic] Mani claimed Buddha, Zoroaster, Hermes, and Plato as his predecessors." - 124:1680

 

“According to certain Gnostics, Thomas, Philip and Matthias were the ‘three witnesses’ to whom Jesus after his resurrection entrusted the care of collecting and transcribing his authentic teachings. The Church used Matthew, Mark and Luke; the heretics carefully refrained from using these Synoptics, and the apocryphal gospels of Thomas, Philip and Matthias took their place... [The] Gospel of Philip ... and [the] Book of Thomas is explicitly attributed to Matthias...revealed to Thomas and written by Matthias.” - 230:335-36

 

"The first canon was compiled by the heretic Marcion in the mid-2nd cent. Marcion accepted only the letters of Paul (though not Titus or First and Second Timothy) and a truncated version of the Gospel of Luke." - 124:1933

 

"Theodore, on subjective grounds, also rejected the epistle of St. James." 284:585 ("Antiochene Theology")

 

"The canon of the Peshitta does not include II. Peter, II and III John, Jude and the Apocalypse [Book of Revelation], and so represents the ancient canon used in the patriarchate of Antioch in the fourth century." - 95:853

 

"The only parts of the Bible which [the Cathars] accepted were some of the prophetic books and the writings of John, especially Revelation." - 272:100 

 

"The Revelation [was] (d)isputed because of its Premillennial teaching" - 199:78

 

“With the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls...a corpus of Essene material was made available for the first time, and it is now possible to assess the Essenes on their own terms... For our purposes, one of the most important characteristics of the Essenes was their apocalyptic vision--their insistence that the Last Times were at hand and that the advent of the Messiah was imminent... ‘The Essenes proved to be the bearers, and in so small part the producers, of the apocalyptic tradition of Judaism.” - 232:61

"...Rev. Norman A. Hjelm, director of Faith and Order for the National Council of Churches...[says]... for a new canon to gain worldwide acceptance... 'would require a broad ecumenical consensus'... To expect such a consensus on rewriting the Bible may be to hope for nothing less than a miracle." - 198:75

 

"Robert W. Funk [Founder of the Jesus Seminar], an independent scholar, has called for the creation of a new canon that would include a wide range of the early writings of Jesus. The canon...'represents the orthodoxy that won out in the fourth century,' But it can no longer be preserved, he said." - 196

 

“Kabalism was merely a unique version of the ancient mysteries specifically designed to deceive God’s chosen people… If Kabalism  could be viewed as the occult counter-explanation of the Old Testament, Gnosticism — existing as a further development of Kabalism and addressing Satan’s ‘new problem’ posed by the risen Christ — would serve as the main attack against the New Testament. Thus, Cabalism and Gnosticism together, composed a type of occult parallel of the Old and New Testaments.” – 233:249

 

“Jung wrote so much about the Gnostics simply because he liked them. In Psychological Types he writes of ‘the vastly superior [compared to that of the Church] intellectual content of gnosis, which in the light of our present mental development has not lost but has considerably gained in value... We find in Gnosticism what was lacking in the centuries that followed: a belief in the efficacy of individual revelation and individual knowledge. This belief was rooted in the proud feeling of man’s affinity with the gods, subject to no human law, and so overmastering that it may even subdue the gods by the sheer power of gnosis.” - 197:538

And it cast down truth to the ground...- Dan. 8:12

 

“...Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt...[is] where an extensive collection of fourth-century Christian and non-Christian Gnostic writings in Coptic was discovered in 1946... By 1970 in response to the initiatives of J.M. Robinson, the UNESCO committee had been reactivated and reorganized with the result that a proper facsimile edition began to appear in 1972... Under Robinson's general editorship preparation of an international English edition of the complete library was undertaken by an international board.” - 95:613,14

 

    "'The Secret Teachings of Jesus'... is a translation of four of the Gnostic texts found at Nag Hammadi in 1945. In the final part of this book, 'The Secret Book of John', a triple spirit appears to John in a vision, identifying itself as the Father, Mother, and Child. The spirit explains how the invisible Father created the feminine 'First Power' which became the womb of creation.

    'She is the first Thought, the image of the Spirit. She became the universal womb, for she precedes everything, the common Parent, the first Humanity, the holy Spirit, the triple male, the triple power, the androgynous one with three names, the eternal realm among the invisible beings, the first to come forth.

    "The ideas seemed to be in accord with Blavatsky's writings. Interestingly, on page 25 of 'Isis Unveiled' she had predicted that Gnostic documents would be found." - 502

 

    "As early as the second century, sects like the Essenes rejected Jesus Christ as 'Lord' but acquiesced to the title Jesus, 'Teacher of Righteousness'. The Dead Sea Scrolls promote this 'right-teacher' who comes right 'before the final era...to usher in the Golden Age.'...

    "Is the U.S. government's top secret laboratory at Los Alamos...digitizing the Rockefeller Foundation supported Dead Sea Scrolls because the scrolls prescribe all of the elements necessary to coerce people to conform to the one world political and religious system of the antichrist?..." - 189:324,100

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. - II Tim. 2:16-20

ˇ        A synthesized bible that appeals to all religions will prepare the way for the world to accept Satan’s new revelations.

 

"Mr. [Robert] Muller has called for the publishing of a worldwide bible which would implement both the divine commandments of the Bible and 'show how the United Nations is a modern biblical institution'. He states that this should be done not only for the Christian, but [for]...'all great religions or sacred books, such as the Koran, the Grant Sahib, etc.'." - 407:35

 

“[The Unity and Diversity World Council has] established a United People’s Assembly of Southern California, in hopes of helping to found a permanent global people’s assembly in the year 2000…and are working to publish in 2000 an augmented version of World Scripture that features the scriptures of more historic religions, modern spiritual movements and individuals.” - 286

ˇ        Some new revelation, probably concerning Ancient Wisdom, will be discovered at the Great Pyramid before the coming of the Antichrist.

"The [Edgar Cayce] readings allude frequently to the Old and New Testaments, ... [and] contain numerous references to Jesus, and depict the rediscovery of the Hall of Records [under the Great Sphinx] as being linked someway to a series of events that will prelude the 'Second Coming' of Christ." - 132:88

 

"Therefore, the Great Pyramid alone fits the description fits the description of 'an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land,' yet 'a pillar at the border.' And inasmuch as Isaiah said that the Great Pyramid would be known as a sign unto the Lord (evidently looking forward to a day when its secrets would be unlocked), it must indeed be in reality a Bible in stone."

"...a much closer relation between the Hierarchy and Humanity will lead eventually...to the Hierarchy on earth, bringing the new revelation." (Alice Bailey) - 1:544-5

 

"But the mystical soul of Europe had remained hidden among the Illuminés and dissidents. To this Novalis appeals in his vision of a new evangel, a new Messiah, a new church. For this regeneration of humanity he looks to the hidden workings of hidden associations all over Europe -- Freemasons, pietistics, Illuminists... All dogmas and forms will be abolished, for the Holy Spirit will guide into all truth... Yet there must be a new bible, perhaps many, for one need not be bound to one gospel for all time. 'Is is not possible to conceive of the composition of several Gospels? Is one absolutely bound to one historical Gospel?... Is not a Gospel of the future possible?' So questioned Novalis, and it was a bible of this new genre that he planned to begin in his romance, Heinrich von Ofterdingen. He intended many volumes for the poet must carry the new religion to men. But his early death brought his vision to an end. Other near contemporaries among German romantics were thinking in the same vein." - 256:54-56

 

ˇ        New revelation will replace the New Testament and Christianity.

 

"...the Christian faith has also served its purpose; its Founder seeks to bring a new Gospel and a new message that will enlighten all men everywhere." - 130:754

 

ˇ        The new revelation will be combined with the occult ‘Ancient Wisdom’ (Kabalism/Gnosticism) to create the new bible for the New Age of the Spirit.

 

"In her...book... 'When Humanity Comes of Age', Britain's Vera Alder discusses the coming Great Teacher. She says that as soon as he has consolidated world power, he will form and head a Spiritual Research Panel that will evaluate and combine all the world's religions and teachings, the occultic 'ancient wisdom', and Mystery Teachings. The Research Panel would develop the 'Bible' of a World Religion which will be the basis of future education'. (p.39)" - 5:63

PROGRAM OF GOD

Old Testament Period: God revealed hidden knowledge to his prophets. God gave King Solomon great wisdom and understanding.

Church Age: Jesus Christ taught kingdom truths using parables; the Holy Spirit reveals the true meaning of Scripture to Christians.

Tribulation Period: God will conceal the truth of Scripture from the wicked but the wise will understand and teach others.

PROGRAM OF SATANIC DUPLICATION

Old Testament Period: The ancient pagan cultures veiled their secret doctrine in allegory.

Church Age: Because the unsaved cannot understand the true meaning of Scripture, they resort to allegorical interpretations that agree with occult doctrine. The Gnostic School of Alexandria, Egypt successfully promoted the allegorical method of interpretation in the early Church.

Tribulation: Occult groups will fulfill Bible prophecy allegorically, believing that all prophecy is written in parables.

Great Tribulation: The Antichrist will teach occultic, allegorical interpretation of Scripture, especially the Book of Revelation.

PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

...[God] giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth what dwelleth in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him, - Dan.2:22

 

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. -  Amos 3:7  

And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. - I Kings 4:29-30

 

CHURCH AGE

And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?  He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.  Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.  But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. - Matt. 13:10-16

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:  Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. - I Cor. 2:7-10

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

    Allegorical interpretation allows the Bible to be conformed to the teachings of Gnosticism. Occultists interpret the Scriptures allegorically rather than literally, even when the grammar, historical setting and context of a passage requires a literal interpretation.  This explains why many new Bible versions are not translated literally but are paraphrased. (See: Dynamic Equivalence 22.E)
    Allegorical interpretation should not be confused with the spiritual interpretation of types and figures whose meanings are found elsewhere in Scripture, but refers to imposing ideas upon the text which are found outside of Scripture and contrary to the whole of Scripture.
    Although the Gnostics' allegorical interpretation is now concealed from the profane, eventually these hidden interpretations and related false doctrines will be made public and replace the literal interpretation of Scripture. (See: Secret Doctrine 23.A)

     OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

"From the Egyptian sages the Greek poets and philosophers learnt the best of their wisdom; but, as Francis Bacon pointed out, the knowledges were veiled in allegorical fable, first by the Egyptians and then even more by the Greeks and other nations. This was a method which worked, and still works today..." - 889:16

     CHURCH AGE

"Gnosticism is like a chameleon, it changes its colors to blend into its environment. An allegorical interpretation of scripture will allow gnosticism to thrive within Christianity. A literal interpretation of scripture makes the ground infertile for gnosticism. In Robert P. Lightner's book The Last Days Handbook, he states, 'not until the third century A.D. and the Alexandrian school of theology was there any serious opposition to the literal method. Teachers in this school - Clement of Alexandria and Origen - used a method of interpretation that made all scripture an allegory.' Origen's use of an allegorical interpretation allowed him to come to the conclusions and beliefs he held. Origen believed in the preexistence of souls and that 'not even Satan was so depraved and has so lost rationality and freedom as to be beyond redemption.' The 1968 Encyclopedia Britannica also states, 'The chief accusations against Origen's teaching are the following: making the Son inferior to the Father and so being precursor of Arianism; spiritualizing away the resurrection of the body; denying hell, a morally enervating universalism; speculating about preexistent souls and world cycles; dissolving redemptive history into timeless myth by using allegorical interpretation, thus turning Christianity into a kind of Gnosticism.' Origen held some strange and occultic beliefs. Dangerous doctrines permeate the church today. It is terrifying, when Christians passively accept teachings without searching the scriptures for the truth." - 824

"...mystics are men who by their own inner experience and their speculation concerning this experience discover new layers of meaning in their traditional religion. If their new revelations do not cause them to break away from the old traditions, they generally determine a way to cause the needed change for their interpretations to become dispensed within the tradition...

"It is generally known that allegorical interpretations arise spontaneously whenever a conflict between new ideas and those expressed in a sacred book necessitates some form of compromise. What is true of allegorical interpretation is still more applicable to the specifically mystical interpretation of such texts... Vast numbers of books have been written by Jewish mystics attempting to find their own ideas in, or read them into, the Biblical texts. A large part of the enormous Kabbalistic literature consists of commentaries of Books of the Bible, especially the Pentateuch, the Five Scrolls, the Psalms, the Song of Songs, the Book of Ruth, and Ecclesiastes. Many productive minds among the Kabbalists found this a congenial way of expressing their own ideas, while seeming to make them flow from the Bible. It is not always easy, in a given case, to determine whether the exegesis was a deliberate device, calculated to bridge the gap between the old and the new vision by reading completely new ideas into the text..." - 854:32-33

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. - 2 Peter 3:16

“...both the Old and the New Testament Scriptures contain, hidden beneath the mere narrative, an esoteric meaning, a 'Secret Doctrine', a 'Gnosis'.” - 192:83

 

“Part of the symbols [of Freemasonry] are displayed there to the initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall imagine that he shall understand them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the princes of Masonry.” (Albert Pike) - 155:819

 

“There always has been and there always must be an exoteric doctrine for the masses, and esoteric teaching for those who - as Plotinus says - 'are fortunately able to perceive it. But in fact these 'mysteries' cannot be stated in any language but that of allegory and symbolism...and in a physical language which can only be symbolical, never literal." - 192:26

 

“…What is known traditionally and historically as ‘Christianity’ consists of manmade dogmas based on a literal interpretation of those Scriptures, and not on their allegorical, mystical and gnostic nature.” – 192:23

 

“...these 'Mysteries' are not recorded as having been given to the disciples in any of the Canonical Gospels. Indeed Jesus is reported to have said to his Disciples: 'I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. These things have I spoke unto you in proverbs (or parables): the hour cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but shall tell you plainly of the Father.' (John xvi.12&25)" - 192:25

 

“Peter Roche de Coppens...suggests that if Christians were to discover the hidden messages in the Bible, they would realize that Christianity and this ageless wisdom are perfectly compatible." - 200:124

“The fulfillment of the prophecies by us [Freemasons] will enable Psalms, Zechariah, Daniel, as well as other parts of the Sacred Volume, to be read...not as a literal fulfillment to be on this earth, but as...Ancient Egyptian Wisdom, and much of it has no meaning literally without the Ritual as guide...” - 9:435

“About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition." (Sir Isaac Newton, 1642-1727) - 431

 

"The doctrine of differing degrees of knowledge may be best illustrated by Origen's treatment of the primitive eschatology. The hope of the second coming of Christ is taken in a literal and material sense by simple believers. Origen does not attack their belief; it is better that they should believe the right thing in the wrong way than not believe it at all, and it is the best of which they are capable. But the Christian preacher ahs a responsibility  to educated minds who, so Origen observes, are often distressed by this article of the creed. The spiritual, symbolic meaning of the doctrine of the second coming may be either the universal expansion of the Church throughout the world, bringing all men to obedience of Christ, or the inward coming of Christ to the soul, when he comes not in humiliation but in glory, uniting the believer to himself in a union so intense that the believer leaves behind the limitations of this mortal state, and is raised to be one spirit with the Lord." - 811:77-8

        GREAT TRIBULATION / GOLDEN AGE

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and UNDERSTANDING DARK SENTENCES, shall stand up. - Dan.8:23

 

“For in every particular of the Word there is an internal sense which treats of things spiritual and heavenly, not of things natural and worldly, such as are treated of in the sense of the letter. And this is true not only of the meaning of groups of words; it is true of each particular word. For the Word is written solely by correspondences, to the end that there may be an internal sense in every least particular of it. What that sense is can be seen from all that has been said and shown about it in the Arcana Coelestia*...

“It is according to that sense that what the Lord says in the passage quoted above respecting His coming in the clouds of heaven [Mt. 24:29-31] is to be understood. The 'sun' there that is to be darkened signifies the Lord in respect to love; the 'moon' the Lord in respect to faith; 'stars' knowledges of good and truth, or of love and faith; 'the sign of the Son of man in heaven' the manifestation of Divine truth; 'the tribes of the earth' that shall mourn, all things relating to truth and good or to faith and love; 'the coming of the Lord in the clouds of heaven with power and glory' His presence in the Word, and revelation, 'clouds' signifying the sense of the letter of the Word, and 'glory' the internal sense of the Word; 'the angels with a trumpet and great voice' signify heaven as a source of Divine truth. All this makes clear that these words of the Lord mean that at the end of the church, when there is no longer any love, and consequently no faith, the Lord will open the internal meaning of the Word and reveal the arcana of heaven...

“*Arcana-pl. of arcanum-a secret, or hidden thing, hence a truth hitherto unknown, from arceo, to shut up or conceal.” - 201

“There is a whole area in the field of English called Transformational Grammar, where everything is changed from one form to another [such as changing a verb to a noun]. This is the real seed plot of the so-called dynamic equivalency where you don’t have the words brought over into English (or another language) word-for-word…” – 188:90

 

“The reason a non-literal method of interpretation is adopted it, almost without exception, because of a desire to avoid the obvious interpretation of the passage. The desire to bring the teaching of Scripture into harmony with some predetermined system of doctrine instead of bringing doctrine into harmony with the Scriptures has kept the method alive.” 493:60

"...it is suggested that not only demythologizing religion is necessary, but that the Church should play a part in remythologizing Christianity to make it credible to modern man." - 10:115

'The Nazi party...scorned the Christian churches...for their insistence that Christianity is superior to all other religions because it was entirely free from mythology. (They were)... incapable of comprehending how the Christianity of the Grail and the [book of] Revelation is the very climax and fulfillment of all mythology." - 63:261

PERSONAL APPLICATION

“...much of the confusion over literal interpretation can be removed when one properly understands the two primary ways the term has been used down through church history: ‘(1) the clear, plain sense of a word or phrase as over against a figurative use, and (2) a system that views the text as providing the basis of the true interpretation.' Thus, literalists, by and large, have used the term literal to refer to their system of interpretation (the consistent use of the grammatical-historical system; Johnson's #2), and once inside that system, literal refers to whether or not a specific word or phrase is used in its context in a figurative or literal sense (Johnson's #1).” - 432

"It would seem that the purpose of the allegorical method is not to interpret Scripture, but to pervert the true meaning of Scripture, albeit under the guise of seeking a deeper or more spiritual meaning... Whether the figurative or 'spiritual' interpretation of a given passage is justified or not depends solely upon whether it gives the true meaning. If it is used to empty words of their plain and obvious meaning, to read out of them what is clearly intended by them, then allegorizing or spiritualizing is a term of reproach which is well merited." (Dwight Pentecost) - 493:5,17

PROGRAM OF GOD

Old Testament/Church Age: Bible prophecies were God's words not man's interpretation of God's words.

PROGRAM OF SATANIC DUPLICATION

Pre-Flood Era: Eve utilized dynamic equivalence which opened the door for Satan to introduce false doctrine.

Church Age: Modern versions introduce false doctrines because they use dynamic equivalence to interpret rather than translate the text.

Tribulation Period: Dynamically equivalent versions will be used to introduce mankind to full blown occultism.

PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

OLD TESTAMENT / CHURCH AGE

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. - II Pet. 1:20-21

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

Literal translation of the Bible will be replaced by dynamic equivalence, i.e., changing the Greek to natural idioms of the day. Eugene Nida, the father of dynamic equivalence, is a linguist and translations secretary of the American Bible Society and director of the Translations Program of the United Bible Societies. Nida first worked with Wycliffe Bible Translators/ Summer Institute of Linguistics in the 1940s and his methods are still used by Wycliffe Bible Translators. The Good News Bible [American Bible Society] was the first Bible based on dynamic equivalents. Other examples would be the NIV and the Living Bible. (See: Rockefeller & Wycliffe Bible Translators*)

Dynamic Equivalence also uses an allegorical / mythological method of translating Scripture which will facilitate the occult one world religion and the teaching of Gnostic doctrines. Eugene Peterson's The Message* is a perfect example of a version that has crossed over the line into occultic concepts: his use of the term "Ancient Wisdom" is extremely occultic; (See: Secret Doctrine 23.A, Allegorical Interpretation 22.D and Bibliography references #192 and 145.)

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. - II.Tim.4:3,4

 

        PRE-FLOOD ERA

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die...

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. - Gen. 2:16-17, 3:1-5

        CHURCH AGE

 

ˇ        All existing Bible societies use dynamic equivalence, rather than literal word-for-word translation, in the creation of modern bible versions.

 

"The modern history of dynamic equivalence began with Eugene Nida ...who was with the Wycliffe Bible Translators, the American Bible Society, and the United Bible Society." - 188:93

 

"The United Bible Society to publish only dynamic equivalence Paraphrased Selections in the future..." - 188:101

 

"Dynamic equivalency interprets the text rather than translates the text." - 103

 

"The best translational theory is dynamic equivalencies; translation is often helpful as a second source." - 190:36

 

“The subtracting, changing and adding to the Word of God, are the essence and heart of dynamic equivalency in its approach to translation. It’s not translation, but changing the Word of God. It’s pure paraphrase.” – 188:93

 

“…If they use this dynamic equivalence technique of translation…[t]hey can change it at will.  That is the saddest thing in the whole picture of our modern versions and in the whole translation and version problem… All of it is hypotheses and guesswork by men. Anything they want to come up with is right. So, we see that dynamic equivalence is more important even than the textual issue…” – 188:98

 

   “I believe the New King James Version is probably the most dangerous of the new versions on the present market because it is the foot in the door and the camel’s nose in the tent to lead eventually to even more dynamic equivalency. By using the word ‘King James Version’ in its title, it lowers people’s guard. People think that it is very similar to the King James Version, using the same techniques and so on.

   “This causes people to think, ‘Well, this is simply a New King James, and there is nothing wrong with it.’ There are lots of things deceptive concerning it. The diabolical nature of the New King James Version shows itself in their printing all the various readings of the Greek text in the footnotes. They print all sides and take their stand in favor of none of them. By so doing, they confuse the readers. The editors have made no decision as to what God’s Words really are.” - 188:124

 

ˇ        Modern bible translators use dynamic equivalence because they hold to an allegorical view of Scripture, which they wish to substitute for the literal interpretation of God’s Word.

 

"No one now, I suppose holds that the first three chapters of Genesis, for example, give a literal history -- I could never understand how any one reading them with open eyes could think they did -- yet they disclose to us a gospel." (B.F. Westcott) – 617:69

 

ˇ        Translators of modern versions are occultists who use dynamic equivalence to introduce into the Scriptures Gnostic and mystical concepts and phrases which replace doctrinal truth.

 

"Meaning must be given priority, for it is the content of the message which is of prime importance. For Bible translating, this means that certain rather radical departures from the formal structure are not only legitimate but may even be highly desirable." - 201:13

 

"I think that [Eugene] Peterson, being a teacher of spiritual theology, is strongly influenced by mystical thought. Spiritual theology... (o)ften...delves into methods of prayer and techniques for meditative contemplation which have been used...(by) the Christian mystics. The reason the terminology in 'The Message' appears to be New Age or occult-like is because the Christian mystics use terms similar to those used by the New Age and Occult mystics. I believe Peterson is writing as a Christian mystic." - 206:1

 

"The Message' is a contemporary rendering of the Bible from the original languages, crafted to present its tone, rhythm, events and ideas in everyday speech." - 204

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. -  2 Peter 3:16

PROPHETIC DISPENSATIONS

    PROGRAM OF GOD

PRE-FLOOD ERA

And the LORD God said unto the serpent... I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel...

Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: - Gen. 3:14-15, 21-22

 

...And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: - Gen 4:2-4

 

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. - Rev. 13:8

OLD TESTAMENT PERIOD

And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering... - Gen. 22:8

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. - Is.45:22

CHURCH AGE

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. - John 1:29

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: - I Cor. 15:3-4

TRIBULATION / FIRST 3.5 YEARS

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.
Rev. 7:14

GREAT TRIBULATION

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. - Rev. 1:5-7

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. - Matt.24.14

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. - Rev.14:6

    PROGRAM OF SATAN

During the Tribulation Period, there will come a point when the true gospel is no longer be preached by men and God will send an angel to evangelize the lost.  Evangelism will have been replaced by "evangelization", which brings entire people groups into a form of pseudo-Christianity or Esoteric Christianity based on pantheism. (See: Pantheism: 4.F; The Beast/Pan 11.A)

The false gospel promoted for the so-called 'Age of the Spirit' will be a revival of the medieval myth of the Eternal Evangel which preached the deification of man. The Church of St. John [Baptist/Evangelist] will be a pretext to deceive the Laodicean Church; the real religion of the New Age will be the worship of Janus/Saturn.  (See: Two Witnesses: 20.D)

        PRE-FLOOD ERA

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. - Gen. 2:16

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. - Gen. 3:4,5

        CHURCH AGE

    "John of Parma, Boccaccio, Petrarch, St Catherine of Sienna, and St Bridget of Sweden...as also various sects, Waldensians, Albigensians, Begards, Dolcinists, all of whom, according to Quinet, Joachim of Fiore and the Eternal Evangel appear as a constant..." - 256:79

"Leroux saw the thirteenth century as one of extraordinary religious ferment and, with a fine disregard for doctrinal differences, put all the heretics into one basket -- Amalricians, Albigensians, Waldensians, Cathars, Apostolic Begards, Followers of Eon de l'Etiole, and Pierre de Bruys, Joachites, and so on -- for according to him they were all preaching the doctrine of the new evangel, of a religion superior to Christianity." - 256:88

"...[George Sand] echoes Leroux in pointing to all those earlier 'voices of St John' who sustain the heresy of the Evangel, including Joachim of Fiore, John of Parma, St Francis... In other lists, he names the Poor of Lions, Wycliffites, Pickards, Taborites, Adamites, Fraticelli, Begards, Waldensians... Here, she says, is the key to all the convulsions and mysteries of the Middle Ages, and she asks the question: where shall we find another key to open the problems of this present time?" - 256:100

"For Novalis...there must be a new bible, perhaps many, for one need not be bound to one gospel for all time. 'Is is not possible to conceive of the composition of several Gospels? Is one absolutely bound to one historical Gospel?... Is not a Gospel of the future possible?' So questioned Novalis, and it was a bible of this new genre that he planned to begin in his romance, Heinrich von Ofterdingen. He intended many volumes for the poet must carry the new religion to men. But his early death brought his vision to an end. Other near contemporaries among German romantics were thinking in the same vein." - 256:54-56

"...lectures given by Rudolph Steiner...under the title 'The Fifth Gospel'... denote(s) that the Akashic Record itself will one day become the new gospel for the whole of mankind...giving certain details of the life of Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30." - 63:271

        GREAT TRIBULATION / GOLDEN AGE   

"The greatest part of these predictions were contained in a book entitled, The Everlasting Gospel, and which was also called, The Book of Joachim; which...foretold the destruction of the church of Rome...and the promulgation of a new and more perfect gospel in the age of the Holy Ghost." - 456:46

"...it was only with Schelling that the medieval heresy of the Eternal Evangel reappeared. When in 1831 he began to deliver his famous lectures on The Philosophy of Revelation in Munich, he felt himself to be invested with a great mission to announce the universal religion to come, the Church of St John... It has been said that 'Many a listener...had the impression that he was watching the rise of new stage of consciousness and the birth of a new religion.'... Like others, Schelling saw St John as the apostle of the future in concord with Moses, Elijah, and John the Baptist in the Old Dispensation, he placed Peter, Paul, and John in the New, representing the three stages in the Christian Church. Peter was the Apostle of the Father, Paul of the Son, while John was the Apostle of the Spirit who was leading mankind into the full truth of the future. The first stage was that of Catholicism, the second of Protestantism, but the third will be the perfect religion of mankind." - 256:62

  "A number of these apostles of a new evangel believed that the propelling force to bring in the kingdom of the future must come from an elite prepared in secret and destined to be the great initiators, the bearers of the new Word. It seems that here we can track the influence of those widespread secret societies of Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism, occultism, Illuminism." - 256:56

"For most the constricting power of ecclesiastical authority, the petrified institutions, dogmas and forms, are the chief obstacles to be cleared away. Among the stones of stumbling the dead Word, the 'dead' Bible, in Schleiermacher's phrase is conspicuous. 'Behold I make all things new' might be taken as the theme text of these prophets and -- with a fine disregard for defining the 'I' -- they looked for, or set out themselves to write, the evangel of the future." - 256:58

"The real gospel of the Christ is...the ancient Gnosis..." - 192:47

"...the Christian faith has also served its purpose; its Founder seeks to bring a new Gospel and a new message that will enlighten all men everywhere." - 130:754

"...Ephraim Pagitt, in his Heresiography [1645], ...accuses the Familists of teaching the deification of man as the Everlasting Gospel." - 256:20

"The Templars, being true gnostics...did not concern themselves with the salvation of individual souls, but with the spiritual and material transformation of entire communities and nations. Their ultimate objective was to restore true gnostic monotheism to the world, uniting Christianity, Judaism and Islam." - 266:101

  "In the Perspectives course we find a distinction between evangelism and evangelization. The distinction is consistent with that of the first International Congress on World Evangelization which came out of the Lausanne Conference on World Evangelization in 1974.
    "Evangelism, of course, is a legitimate name and a legitimate endeavor It is the work of the Church to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in order to bring souls into the Kingdom of God. True evangelism follows the spreading of the pure Gospel with the planting churches and the discipling of believers that will guard the biblical truths and practices vital to sustaining a viable relationship between individual believers and the Lord Jesus Christ.
    "Evangelization is the term used by the global, ecumenical World Christian Movement to gain the support of churches throughout the world. It denotes the 'Christianizing' of all a world's 'people groups' by means a work that combines social and political action as equal elements with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    "To the average Christian there is no distinction between evangelism and evangelization. But to the World Christian Movement there is a distinction. Essentially, that distinction is that evangelism involves the saving of souls, while evangelization means the saving of whole nations or 'people groups spiritually and temporally through political and social action.'" - 393
