James was King and he wanted England to have a church of its own so he had his minions create the KJVhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Version  

This worked for the Church of England in the wars and fights with the Roman Catholics. Everyone called each other heretic and enslaved millions, killed more and said it was all in the bible.

When I am really thirsty I have been known to drink water from creeks, streams, and rivers, ponds, mud holes, and ditches. You have to be really dehydrated to want water that bad. Why not drink from the source of the only clean water? The Old Testament told of the Rock that Moses struck to provide water was the forerunner of Jesus as He declared that He was the Water of Life

Read the Word in Greek of the original writings by using Strong’s Concordance

Revelation 22:17 NIVhttps://www.biblestudytools.com/revelation/22-17.html

17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

I am out of my mind for my Savior, Jesus, my God and King.

Are you thirsty? Or full of the water found in the world? The original books or letters of the Church were written on fragile products that were around when Paul was a pup. None of the very first originals are extant or laying around somewhere like last weeks best seller. Most of what we have is dated after 150 AD for scraps and pieces of the pages that were laboriously hand copied by people in monasteries, public houses(library) or church buildings. After 70 AD the second temple is destroyed by Rome and

The Babylonians destroyed the temple Solomon built and may have taken the Ark or not depending on who you ask. That was where God met man in the form of the high priest. As a follower of the Way of Jesus, we are the dwelling place of the El Shekinah and God speaks through His Spirit to our spirit. After the destruction of the first temple and the second temple being crushed and destroyed along with the city of Jerusalem by the Romans, 

 

Siege of Jerusalem. This is an artist misconception from the 1500 era of church art and like most perception of that period the noble war was fighting the pagan muslim and Arab hordes  for the city of Jerusalem as if God wanted it back or needed it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Jerusalem_(70_CE)

 there was no Jewish temple in Jerusalem and we won’t see the return of the Temple that God dwells until we see the New Jerusalem coming down out of Heaven. We are the Temple and the presence of God is within us. Learn the lesson of the “Woman at the Well”, “God is Spirit we must worship Him in Spirit and Truth” Jesus spoke to this outcast, a racially divided woman the powerful truths of God. He is Spirit! He is outside of our physical boxes where we try and place the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Wonderful Counselor. The discovery of the dead sea scrolls verified the accuracy of the Old Testament or what the devout Hebrew calls the Torah and Prophets. The books were gathered in several stages to come down to us as our many translations and copies. The most recognized translation is in Old English of Shakespeare and contains some prejudice towards the Roman and leans toward the protestant church somewhat. All that has led to a lot of division. The King James Version is one of the worst translations and yet will be OK to use if you know what to watch for.  I love the language of the KJV and love to read it out loud. The words are Old English and carry some peculiar meanings in some passages. The original books or letters of the Church were written on fragile products that were around when Paul was a pup.

Would a person reading God’s Word in “Middle English” or “Early Modern English” be considered speaking in tounges if the Holy Spirit is leading them to read? We can use online tools to find the Greek meaning of the words of the bible. We can form our own opinion and come to our own understanding of the Truths of the New Covenant. Link here.

Woman at the well asking about which temple to worship at. Today the questions will be the same and the answers still the Truth! John 4: God is Spirit

Common Ground of Jesus Christ is that the Jewish Messiah is now Lord and God of all nations, people and tribes.
