Well, I bet the word crime really sticks out, when read. One may think, crime what crime? Well maybe not a crime punishable by law, but a crime all the same, committed against the Lord’s Inherent Word. What is the charge you may ask? The charge of purposely mistranslating Gods Holy Word, to suit ones own purpose. Just as we now have the facts that he ordered the word congregation, be replaced with the word church, knowing that it was neither a proper translation or transliteration. We must now seacrh for his motive or possible motives behind this crime. Just as a good attorney presents facts related to his case, he also presents the motive in the case to show the reason why the crime was committed. So now that we have the facts that King James I ordered this mistranslation, we are now going to search out his motive or motives, to better present our case to others, when showing them the truth.
There is so much information written on King James I, that I could write for days going over it. If your interested in learning more it is a very interesting read. What I’m going to do however, is just touch on some really key points to show his motive, and then present some more detailed information on some of those key points.
I know that so far this study seems to be more of a history lesson than a scripture study. Please understand however, that I have to go over a lot of history to properly present the Lord’s case in this search of the truth, that He wants us to know and understand. This truth has been purposely covered up over the centuries, and it’s time for those whom the Lord chooses to want to understand, to now understand. You would have not clicked on this site in your search engine if the Lord had not already put it into your heart, to want to know the truth. That’s how the Holy Spirit works. Trust me though, in this study, and like I said it will be a long one, we will be looking at lots of scripture, and breaking down verses practically word for word. So having said all that, if your not much into history, just read and bear with it please, because it is very important, to get the full picture of what I’m presenting, because in this study I’m starting in the past, but I’m going to take us all the way to the present. Ok, now to King James I
King James I ( born June 19, 1566, in Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh Scotland- died March 27, 1625, Theobalds, Hertfordshire, England). He was first King of Scotland as King James VI, from 1567 to 1625. James was the only son of Mary, Queen of Scots, and her second husband, Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley. Eight months after James was born, his father died when his house was destroyed by an explosion. After Mary’s third marriage, to James Hepburn, earl of Bothwell, Mary was defeated by rebel Scottish Lords and she renounced her throne. James, just one year old, became king of Scotland on July 24, 1567. Mary left the Kingdom on May 16, 1568, and she never saw her son again. So already this sounds like a sad early childhood for King James, however during his childhood he was surrounded by a small band of great Scottish Lords, from whom emerged the four successive regents, the earls of Moray, Lennox, Mar, and Morton. The young king was kept fairly isolated but was given a good education until the age of 14. He studied Greek, French, and Latin and made good use of a library of classical and religious writings. Now before I go on with King James, let’s take just a quick look at his mother Queen Mary.
Mary Queen of Scotland. Mary, Queen of Scots, original name Mary Stuart or Mary Stewart, (born December 8, 1542, Linlithgow Palace, West Lithuania, Scotland- died, February 8, 1587, Fortheringhay Castle, Northamptonshire, England). She was Queen of Scotland (1542-67), and Queen consort of France ( 1559-60). Her unwise marital and political actions provoked rebellion among the Scottish nobles, forcing her to renounce her throne and flee to England, where she was eventually beheaded as a Roman Catholic threat to the English throne. She to, like her son James was very intelligent and very well educated. Now let’s jump ahead during this time period and look at Queen Elizabeth, then we will go back to Mary and King James. This is all very important to know, so we can get a feel for what was going on during this period, to help us better understand King James.
Elizabeth I, bynames the Virgin Queen and Good Queen Bess, (born September 7, 1533, Greenwich, near London England – died March 24,1603, Richmond, Surrey), she was Queen of England from(1558-1603) during a period, often called the Elizabethan Age, (www.britannica.com) most I think have heard of this, Age. To be continued, I apologize for such a short entry today, but I was editing my last post. I added some scripture that the Lord laid on my heart to add, that coincided with what I was saying, and I ran into some problems editing it, so until next time. May the Lord bless your search for truth.
