Acts 17:11 “Now the Bereans were more noble-minded than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if these teachings were true.”
The Septuagint’s Anchor!
Stories are often misleading; combining misguided word phrases on pages.
Through the World’s printed papers then spinning such tales; their fiction gets altered till Truth appears false.
But with “passing grade” progress, such lies — multiplied, have surged past through scribes who pen compromised “facts”.
Through these have translations of GOD’s sovereign WORD… been thrown off the course which HE solely had etched.
So! Know Scripture, dear friend. Map your current translation far back to First’s version, Septuagint bound!
At a minimum, filter such later “creations”; ensuring all glory to GOD fills each line.
Then! As zealous Bereans, defending HIS script…you shall not be found wandering away from The Truth!
As HIServant and fellow Berean giving GOD all the Glory,
Devotional: Joshua 1:8 “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
The net net is that everything we read in our Bibles is a translation of some kind.
But as I often mention, it’s a problem to a half degree off course when traveling by ship.
It may not matter at first but over time, you’ll wind up far from the shorelines of scriptural accuracy.
Romans 15:4 “For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope!”
But every translation has its own “zealots” and even the sacred KJV has multiple instances of being multiple degrees away from what the earliest scribes had written.
Therefore, as fervent souls seeking only HIS truth to take in and to share, study with Diligence — never wavering from this Fact!
HE is our Sovereign GOD in control of all things!
Psalms 119:15-16 “I meditate on YOUR precepts and consider YOUR ways. 16 I delight in YOUR decrees; I will not neglect YOUR WORD!”
As such, wholly surrender the eyes of your heart and your life just to CHRIST — for HE IS coming for those who’ve not strayed from HIS Script!
Revelation 1:3 “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near!”
Amen and amen!
