A Literalist View of Today Concerning Biblical Scripture
Why is it so unpopular to just believe what the bible says? My goal is not the condemnation of your values, only to help you to think. Take every word literally, not legalistic or ritualistic, but at face value, not adhering to the opinionated gospels of pure scriptures and you will do well. Personally I don't care who says what, and you are free to stand in line to follow any person, place, or thing you desire, but if the Jesus you follow doesn't line up, you're following another Jesus and there are many Christs in our word today.
Today, opinions are like cellphones, most everybody has one and that is one of Lucifer's greatest tools, the instilling in our minds the privy that our opinions mean something, dividing us when our opinions are compared to the pure scriptures. As a strict biblical literalist I encourage you to take every word of scripture literally, not adhering to the opinionated Gospels of those pure scriptures, use a Textus Receptus (King James - Geneva) bible and not a modern Westcott and Hort translation and you will do well.
Today, more than ever it is important to be a strict literalist concerning scriptures and not follow philosophies, theologies or doctrines of men, what do I mean by this? If the scripture doesn't clearly state it, don't believe it. Why go to a religious belief system filled with figuratively heightened effects, which needs total validation when you can go directly to the pure scriptures, which in every case validates itself. Scriptures have been psychoanalyzed to fit most every scenario imaginable today, changing and corrupting them.
In our world, a person can be anything desired and proclaim the name Christian, from Gnostic Masonry to Homosexual to Wicca and everything in-between, there is a Christian denomination which will welcome you in. What's the value of religion, apart from being a disciple of Jesus Christ of Nazareth? What's the value of being a disciple of Jesus Christ of Nazareth apart from religion? The literalist characteristics of those two questions are clear and undeniable, and the dividing line is found in Revelation chapter 1.
As a strict literalist we are able to be led by God's Spirit and not man's opinion. Having read the scriptures in this manner I can truly say without regret that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not only my Passover Lamb, but my Passover, my Manna and my Sabbath, I need no other. His New Covenant is the source of my Peace and Joy, and the foundation of the Mercy afforded me. Jesus Christ the Great I AM, the God of Revelation chapter 1 is my God.
I didn't say mold the Jesus your following to fit Revelation chapter 1, I said Revelation 1 is the dividing line. There's a big difference and without the value of being a true Disciple of the Jesus Christ of Revelation 1, your believe system and your religion is just a Sunday (or Saturday) morning social club and you're not following the God of the bible, Revelation 1 clearly defines who God is, the Revealing of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. To be a disciple of the God of Revelation 1, you are set apart, in the world not of the world.
Consider this, did God give any of the Apostles or old Testament prophets complete knowledge and understanding? Think about it, each were given a measure of understanding, enough to fulfill the testimony that was given to them and although their witness was true it was not complete before the book of Revelation and the sealing and revealing of those pure scriptures. Even John the Revelator and Daniel from the old Testament didn't understand the truths given to them, they were just told to write them down.
Today we have the completed scriptures in pure form and there is no longer any need for second hand opinionated theologies and philosophies. Man made religions, although sincere seek to take the place of the pure scriptures by referencing back to them and validating their authority over them using the figuratively heightened effects of rituals and legalism, etc, leaving us with 32,000 denominations today claiming the name of "Christian", many of which both validate and promote the New Age Agendas.
Personally, I've grown weary of those who proclaim to be Christians promoting their viewpoints as gospel, they chase theories into endless religious rabbit holes. You can psychoanalysis the bible to fit any scenario so it's important to use a real bible, Textus Receptus (King James - Geneva) not a modern Westcott and Hort translation, who were Luciferians. Does God allow for support of Luciferianism? No, He absolutely, positively, does not, you simply cannot serve both God and Satan, or Lucifer as described here.
The Strict Literalist view is the only way to circumnavigate the propaganda and disinformation of theologies, philosophies and doctrines of men. Scriptures have been changed and corrupted to fit the modern human mindset of spiritualism with lying signs and wonders. From the theories of the Heliocentric, Geocentric and Flat Earth models of our universe to the half god Human Hybrids of the Aryan Nephilim. Mysticism has gone full circle and today, the gods of Babylon, Greece, Egypt and Rome have dominion (Lucifer).
As strict Literalist we go directly to pure scriptures, allowing God's Spirit to be both our preacher and our teacher. I encourage you to follow this simple approach, only God's Spirit will convict and guide the lost into the real knowledge and truth of the Gospel. Today, I consistently see baptized pagans blindly following pagan christianity. Our purpose as Christians is to direct the lost souls around us to Christ Jesus, the God of Revelation 1 and we do this by quoting pure scriptures to them, proclaiming the hope that is within us.
