Open Forum - SUBJECT: BEING A KING


Insults and bad language welcome. False accusations will be tolerated seven times seventy times. Man fearing will be mocked, but not banned. Mocked relentlessly though.

A king is a king under the King of Kings, so what does a small 'k' king rule?

That's a good question. It seemeth to me that a small 'k' king rules one's inner domain. One's being. Inner command. If we have this alien presence called the "Old Man" within us we have an enemy that must be done away with, then we must rule our inner being as a kingdom is ruled. This kingdom of thought, emotion, deed, imagination, tongue, instinct, conscience.

So first we have to see ourselves.

Regeneration is done by God with no part in it played by ourselves, but sanctification requires effort. Holy Spirit- guided - God-reliant - effort, yet effort nonetheless.

A king sits on a throne. You have to have a basic level of observation internally to be able to see yourself. This gets at the doctrine of many I's. This is a subject average Christians will mock and laugh at, not knowing they are as asleep as any girl lapsing into and out of numerous personalities through the course of their average day, unaware of any of them including the one they are currently in the bondage of right this moment.

You need knowledge first of all. You need to know what to observe. You also need to know what to do. You need school knowledge. Without it you're no better off than any of the shallow yackers at the PuritanBoard.

To value that knowledge - to even be able to recognize it - you need a level of development with higher influences that is rare in and of itself.

Kings have the Word of God in them. To be a King you have to read the Word of God complete 7 times twice. Thomas Watson let on this is the mark when he referenced a King in one of his books who had read the Bible complete 14 times. Most Christians never read the Bible complete ever. Including seminary professors. And you have to read the pure and whole - the real - Word of God. The God-preserved Word of God: the traditional - received - text. In our day that is the Authorized, King James, Version. The fact that it is the one version mocked by the establishment church - Roman Catholic AND Protestant - lets you know it is the the real thing. Among other things that should let you know. But a born again Christian will know the voice of the Shepherd, and won't be put off by mocking and propaganda from the devil's agents on this subject. It is the most foundational subject, and God's own find their way to the truth, and value the truth on this subject when they find it.

God preserving His Word? My God! that sounds supernatural! We can't have that kind of belief in our seminaries! Much better to teach that man preserves the Word of God, and that man is the final authority on what the Word of God consists of. Yes. Scholars. And we will call anybody who questions this position "anti-intellectual" (tee hee hee) {giggles} ...

YOU SOUND LIKE RIPLINGER WITH THOSE NUMBERS UP THERE!!!!!!!

Yes, I should clarify: the number seven simply represents completeness, like a full octave. Do re me fa sol la si do. That's eight notes, but two of them are the same, just an octave apart. You get the point. Perhaps. Seven intervals crossed anyway.

The Watson reference was unfortunate. It will throw off the dumb and give ammunition to the wicked.

So be it.

Critical Text scholars are announcing their new project: The new critical text edition of the Homeric epics. Zeus is no longer called Zeus, but is Zhay-Zhay. Achilles' fight with the river has now been deleted (this was James White's call, he just couldn't figure how a person could fight a river, so it was obviously not supposed to be in there). And Odysseus now actually agrees to marry Calypso and become immortal (because the way it was originally was too Christian and might make current day Christians less shallow if they found meaning in things like the Homeric epics which would render them in danger of seeing the shallowness in churchianity critical text scholars.

On the title page of the new critical text edition of the Homeric epics is the motto of the critical text scholars: Don't Be Anti-Intellectual!

Alexander is being sarcastic (is he a Christian, by the way?). I think he is one we should not listen to. (Ah, he's mentioned in the holy Koran, so maybe he IS Christian...where is my memory?) The best thing that has happened to Protestant believers is they have adopted the Alexandrian manuscripts and bible versions based on them that the one true Church, Vatican Grace Muhammad Trinity Church, has deemed the most accurate. They have done well in this. They are returning to their Mother. Meanwhile, I've been reading Calvin's Institutes, and I must say it has some vigorous sections. For a moment I even began to feel something strange overtaking me. Then I shook it off. I quickly picked up my New International Version and I was OK again. Come to your Mother, Protestants. Your leaders have done good in exchanging our Alexandrian bibles for those corrupt Reformation ones. Now follow them further and come to your Mother. She is big enough to give all of you shelter and peace. Peace, peace, peace.

Sir, upon perusing my RSS feeder on my Treo while bicycling up Mt. Chilusoo, monitoring my pulse, my wattage, digitally recording the ascent and descent, then filming the young thief who stole my bike outside a donut shop (if anybody has any information please contact me) I was alerted by a channel regular that you have referenced my name. May I inform you, sir, that lying is manifestly ungodly behaviour, sir. Sir, I don't know you, I have never read your 'blog' nor do I plan on reading your blog as I have a very full and busy schedule. Any context my name has been referenced in is manifestly deceptive and - sadly - not uncommon in this age when anybody can write anything on the internet and have it instantly published as if they were ordained intellectuals. Sadly I find myself having to write these messages to protect my good name, sadly as it takes away from my valuable time I could be using to debate people and spreading God-given logic to masses of humanity who have yet to hear such God-given rhetoric. I bid you, sir, good day and pray that you will find the grace to amend your behaviour in the future. Sadly, I lament that will not be the case. In his name, >>>James Blanco
