Are you washed in the Blood?

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Not according to the new Bible Per-Versions!

Not according to the New International Version (NIV), New American Standard Version (NASV), New Living Bible, New Revised Standard Versions (NRSV), Revised Standard Version (RSV), The Living Bible (TLB), Today’s English Version, Contemporary English Version (CEV), International Standard Version: (ISV) and the other Per-Versions!

Revelation 1:5 clearly reads in the King James Bible:
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (KJB)

But you are NOT "washed in the blood" in the New Per-Versions . . .

American Standard Version (ASV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, [who is] the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loveth us, and loosed us from our sins by his blood;

Amplified Bible reads:
and from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the First-born of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us, and has once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood.

Contemporary English Version (CEV) reads:
May kindness and peace be yours from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness. Jesus was the first to conquer death, and he is the ruler of all earthly kings. Christ loves us, and by his blood he set us free from our sins.

Good News for Modern Man reads:
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn Son who was raised from death, who is also the ruler of the kings of the earth. He loves us, and by his death he has freed us from our sins

International Standard Version (ISV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, the witness, the faithful one, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood;

Living Bible (TLB) reads:
and from Jesus Christ who faithfully reveals all truth to us. He was the first to rise from death, to die no more. He is far greater than any king in all the earth. All praise to him who always loves us and who set us free from our sins by pouring out his lifeblood for us.

New American Standard Version (NASV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood

New Century Version (NCV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, Jesus is the faithful witness, the first among those raised from the dead. He is the ruler of the kings of the earth. He is the One who loves us, who made us free from our sins with the blood of his death.

New International Version (NIV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,

New Living Bible reads:
and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness to these things, the first to rise from the dead, and the commander of all the rulers of the world. All praise to him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by shedding his blood for us.

New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood

New Testament in Modern English (J.B. Phillips) reads:
and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, firstborn of the dead, and ruler of kings upon earth. To him who loves us and has set us free from our sins through his own blood

Revised Standard Version (RSV) reads:
and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the first-born of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood

Today’s English Version reads:
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first to be raised from death and who is also the ruler of the kings of the world. He loves us, and by his sacrificial death he has freed us from our sins

The shocking FACT is – NOWHERE in the new Per-Versions do they read "you are washed in the blood"! I repeat – NOWHERE do the new Per-Versions read "you are washed in the blood"!

What can wash away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can wash away my sins?

Nothing . . . According to the new Per-Versions

Oh Happy day when Jesus washed my sins away!
– Not according to the NIV, NASV, NCV, CEV, at all!

According to the NIV, NASV, NCV, CEV and other Per-Versions – Jesus Christ did not wash your sins away!

Why don’t we "update" our "archaic", "hard to understand" song books?

Have you been to Jesus for the loosing power?
Are you freed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you loosed in the blood of the Lamb?

What can loose away my sins?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Isn’t it irreverent and sacrilegious that these new Per-Version people will "update" the words of God — without "batting an eye" — and yet would not dare even consider "messing with" the song "Are You Washed In the Blood"!

Aren’t you glad Brother Elisha Hoffman, the author of "Are You Washed in the Blood", still read and believed the "updated" and "archaic" King James Bible? He might have come out with some silly occultic nonsense like Stephen Curtis Chapman’s "Lord of the Dance", or Carman’s blasphemous "Holy Ghost Hop", et al.

Consider the following wonderful, Christ-uplifting hymns that are contrary to the NIV, NASV, NLB, NRSV, RSV ASV, NCV, CEV, and the other "legions" (Mark 5:9) of Per-Versions!

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
— Jesus Paid It All

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
— Just As I Am

Happy day, happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away!
He taught me how to watch and pray, and live rejoicing every day
Happy day, happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away.
— O Happy Day

Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat,
I wait, blessed Lord, at Thy crucified feet.
By faith, for my cleansing, I see Thy blood flow,
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
— White Than Snow

Bless├Ęd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
— Blessed Assurance

There is a blood-washed multitude, a mighty army strong;
The Lord of hosts their righteousness, redeeming love their song.
— The Blood Washed Throng

There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins;
. . .The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day;
And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away.
Washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away;
And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away.
— There Is A Fountain Filled With Blood

I don’t know about you — but thank God (and no thanks to the new Per-Versions)
— "I’m Washed in the Blood of the Lamb"!

And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (KJB)

Our Midnight Monster

It all started last night when I went to brush my teeth for bed at 11:08 p.m. I walked into our laundry room(which is also a spare bathroom) and went to put something onto the dryer when all of a sudden I saw this HUGE spider....okay so maybe it wasn't huge...but it was BIG none the less. It was bigger than a silver dollar. ANYWAY.....instantly I went to look for someone awake in the house, come to find out...everyone was in bed but my 20 year old brother Ronnie. Just the person I needed!! I opened the door "Ronnie there is a spider in the laundry room, come and kill it so I can brush my teeth." and his reply was "Your a big girl, you can do it." .
Well....I went into the laundry room with my pink flip-flop and patiently waited for the right opportunity to kill it. I waited 10 minutes and went back to Ronnie's room "Ronnie please come and kill it, I want to go to bed!! I need to brush my teeth, come kill it!!" once again his response was "Your a big girl....kill it yourself.". This time I replied "Yep, that's right I am a GIRL, G-I-R-L..GIRL...some and kill it!!".
After much pleading and begging.........he went to bed!! So here I was in our hallway trying to figure out what to do with this spider. I got to thinking "Well...I could put the bleach bottle on the top of it and that would kill it, but that would be messy and I don't want to do that. I could spray it with bug killer, oh but that is messy and noisy it will wake Momma. What am I gonna do?". At this point I am tired, needing to brush my teeth and aggrivated with my brother...so needless to say.......I started to tear up! Yepper, I started to tear up!! I stood there and debated what to do for an hour.....can you believe that! I stood there for an hour!!! Well....then I was happy to see Momma get up for a midnight potty break. At first she said just leave it, so I put the flip-flop away and went to get my stuff to brush my teeth. She came back and said where is it. She did not have her glasses on, so she could not see it when I pointed it out. She got her glasses and said "Oh, hand me your flip-flop." so I had to run to my room, get the flip-flop and gave it to Momma. She took it and gave the spider a real quick jab with the flip-flop......and the spider ran! She jump and said "ooohh" and walk back. I gave her the broom and the spider had fallen beside the washer, she took the broom and started to smoosh to spider.
The spider was not dead, but had disappeared!! So...I went to be knowing that somewhere in the house we had a HUGE spider! And that was our midnight experience!

Isn't that just the cutest thing. I got to looking up pictures of kittens on the internet and found this one. I miss our little kitties!! They were so cute playful and fluffy.....till they grew up! Because of moving into the Pastorium we could not bring our cats with us. I hated to have to leave them! They were so much fun! Oh, well....this post really has nothing to do with anything.....I guess I just wanted to post of picture of a kitty! LOL Have a good one!

Twelve Years Today!

Well, I am twelve years old in the Lord today. I got saved twelve years ago at the age of five. People say that it is impossible for a kid to get saved at that young of an age, but ya wanna know something.....I am a young kid that did!! I am so glad that God allowed me to be saved at a young age. There could have been all kinds of trouble for me down the road, but God allowed me to be spared from all that harm and shame that could have been mine. He let me be saved young!! I am so thankful!
