The Golden KJ Bible
“More to be desired are they then gold, yea, than much fine gold” – (Ps.19:10).
Of all of man’s technological inventions, the most far-reaching started on Aug.15, 1456 – ‘printed books.’ For thousands of years all books were written by hand including the Bible. In fact, Bible comes from the Greek word biblos, meaning ‘book’ – God’s book – God is the author.
It took many weeks or months to painstakingly make a copy of the Bible or any book. It was done with a brush, reed, or quill and it was long hard work. Jewish and Christian scribes toiled over their precious manuscripts, there were not very many because the work of copying them took so long. A copy of God’s Word was very precious.
Many of these hand-copied Bibles were very beautiful. They were decorated with ‘gold’ leaf or edges. So some had golden Bibles – literally. Then along came Johann Gutenberg, a German goldsmith who invented the first movable-type printing press in 1456 that worked. The first books he printed were 200 gorgeously type-set Bibles and he unleashed an information epidemic that rages to this day. Of course, as God’s Word shows us with the tree of knowledge, it can be used for good or evil. You can print a Holy Bible or a ‘playboy’ magazine or filthy books that blaspheme the Lord Jesus Christ.
But first God showed the world what should be printed – THE BIBLE. And He used a German goldsmith to show the world that God’s Holy Bible is worth more than all the gold and riches in this world. He was showing us that every letter of every verse in the Bible is precious and where the true riches lie – the riches of God are his GOLDEN BIBLE. The gold bricks of this world appear to be valuable but are really worthless.
Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press bankrupted him and a creditor took over his business. But many publishers today make much gold (money) in printing Bibles. Millions of dollars go into their coffers as they print new Bible perversions each year in order to gain more gold. But this is not where the gold of the Bible lies, it lies in the wisdom of God who authored the Bible. It pointed on every page in both the Old Testament and the New Testament to Jesus Christ, who alone can give us salvation and eternal life and the right to walk in the golden city of New Jerusalem. The wisdom of Jesus in the Bible is true gold. “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” – (Col.2:3). “The unsearchable riches of Christ” – (Eph.3:8). If you’re saved by Christ, you have the wisdom of God.
The golden KJV Bible is God’s gift to man – it’s truly golden and priceless. How much will you pay for eternal life? How much is it worth? Well the Bible tells you how to get it through Jesus Christ. Oh the foolishness of man chasing after the gold rushes of this world and dying and going to hell without Christ. Gutenberg invented the printing press and first printed Bibles and he was a gold-smith and a copy of his Bible now lies in the Ft. Knox Gold Depository. Surely only a blind man would fail to see the hand of God showing us the value of His Word and His precious truth about His Golden Bible.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold” – (Prov.3:13,14). God’s Word is worth more than all the wealth of this world and yet so few read and study it. God’s golden KJV Bible leads you to salvation through His Son Jesus Christ and then as a newborn Christian, you dig and mine in the Bible for the golden nuggets of God’s wisdom. The wise gold miner is not the one with gold fever trying to strike it rich, but the one who prospects for the gold of God’s Word. The gold and money of this world is fool’s gold and only a fool chases after it. Are you God’s miner? Are you God’s workman? “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” – (2 Tim.2:15).
It is written in (Ps.119:72,127) “The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.” “Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.” Do you love God’s Word above all the riches of this world? How plain this is. And yet how many Christians have fallen away because of the deceitfulness of riches and turned their back on the Golden Bible. It is much better to get Bible wisdom than the gold and money of this world. God is the one with the Golden KJV Bible. I don’t mean to go out and buy a Bible with gold edges, but just read and study and obey a $2.00 KJV Bible. Get wisdom and understanding. Study the Bible after you’re born again in Christ and the Great Teacher, the Holy Spirit, will lead you into deeper truth. Deep mine your King James Bible – “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all thing, yea, the deep things of God” – (I Cor.2:10). The deepest gold mines in the world are the gold mines of South Africa, miles deep. The more a man lusts for the gold and riches of this world, the closer to hell he gets.
How sparse is Bible study and mining of golden nuggets of God’s wisdom today. We see very little of Bible gold fever today. Instead the rush is to the churches that entertain people instead of preaching true salvation and feeding the flock. Gold is found in the Garden of Eden in (Gen.2) to the golden city of God, New Jerusalem in (Rev.21) – It’s truly a Golden Bible.
It is said of the wisdom of God – “It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall
silver be weighed for the price thereof. It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir,
with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. The gold and the crystal cannot equal
it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall
be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies. The
O’, the value of the Golden Bible’s wisdom. We see the value of God’s Bible wisdom compared to gold. “Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it” – (Prov.8:10,11). God’s wisdom is priceless – His wisdom is better than wealth, it is true everlasting riches and it’s found in His beloved Son. Wealth, which men spend all their lives in acquiring, is a valueless thing at death.
When the Queen of Sheba came to Solomon to prove his Godly wisdom, she brought spices and precious stones and much gold – (I Kings 10:2). She said – “Thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. Happy are thy men , happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom” – (vs.8). She gave King Solomon 120 talents of gold. . God is here showing us plainly that all the gold and precious stones of this world is not equal to the wisdom of God – God’s wisdom is priceless and you can have it by receiving the free gift of God, His Son Jesus Christ and buying a $2.00 King James Bible. It is written in (vs.14) “Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and six talents of gold.” This is the number of the Beast that requires God’s wisdom to understand – “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man: and his number is six hundred threescore and six” – (Rev.13:18). Wisdom points right to Solomon and we find 666 with him. All the unsaved will get the mark of the Beast in their foreheads or right hands in order to buy or sell. The choice is between Christ or Antichrist – the Golden Bible or the gold and money of this world which is the root of all evil.
There are three 666 men in the bible: Antichrist-Beast, Solomon, and Adonikam – (Ezra.2:13). Solomon’s wisdom was corrupted when he disobeyed God’s Word in his later years. He chased after gold and women and went into spiritual darkness. God’s Bible wisdom told him – “Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he multiply to himself silver and gold” – (Du.17:17). Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines and they turned away his heart from God – (I Kings 11:3). He turned stupid and stupid men today chase after the same two things – gold and golden-haired women. Take heed to the wisdom of God. PTL Jesus who was without sin and had the wisdom of God. Stay with the Golden King James Bible. Adonikam was the family head of 666 persons who returned from captivity in Babylon to Israel with Zerubbabel in about 537 B.C. The end-time Beast – Mr. 666 will be king of New Babylon. He will rule the earth at the end of the second return of the Jews from their second Diaspora around the world – from 1945 to the present. With Adonikam God is showing you to look for the Antichrist when the Jews return the second time. Adonikam’s name means ‘the Lord is risen’ and that’s exactly what the Jews and Gentiles need to believe – in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.
Are you saved and born again in Christ? If you are, do you love your Golden Bible more than a million dollars. If you’re not born again, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart for forgiveness of sins. The Lord Jesus Christ had a million times more wisdom than Solomon. “The queen of the south shall rise up in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon: and , behold, a greater than Solomon is here” – (Mt.12:42).
The Golden Bible will lead you to Christ who is the wisdom of God and the Holy Spirit will teach you the incomparable riches of Gods wisdom as you grow in wisdom and stature with God. It will lead you to the golden city of New Jerusalem and eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23). Become a new creature in Christ – “… and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” – (Col.2:2,3).
Christ is the golden wisdom of the Bible.
