If you think that any of GOD’S WORD is trivia, you have surely not read the Bible, or you have heard from one false religion or another that someone has changed the WORD of GOD and it doesn’t really mean what it says. Anyone saying anything like that is a liar.1 How would anyone be able to be born again of the SPIRIT, saved, or know what to do or what not to do in our world if we didn’t have the WORD of GOD?
The WORD of GOD says that “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD” (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4). Scripture tells us we cannot live without the WORD of GOD.2 JESUS said, “The WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are life [our eternal life]” (John 6:63).
Sin has been undermining the WORD of GOD since the Garden of Eden when Satan told Eve, in so many words, that the WORD of GOD is meaningless; “GOD says you will die? No, you will not die!”3 But we do die, don’t we?
I know that the WORD of GOD is true, because JESUS appeared to me in a vision while I was wide awake with my eyes wide open. HE told me, forcefully, to read the WORD of GOD, the KJV Bible. Now, why would JESUS tell me to read the Bible if it were not true? Some say it was the devil who appeared in the vision before me, but why would the devil tell me to read the Bible? That would not serve his purpose.
We know from the WORD of GOD that JESUS is GOD made flesh, and again, HE is the WORD of GOD, which is GOD.4 Why would GOD tell me to read HIS WORD if it weren’t true?
Everything that GOD said would be happening in the last days is happening.5 Anybody would be a fool to not believe GOD’S WORD. The WORD of GOD says in Psalm 14:1-3, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no GOD. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from Heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek GOD. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
So GOD is the WORD, and if you don’t believe the WORD, which is GOD—the GOD that never changes, the GOD that is the same yesterday, today, and forever6—then you are saying there is no GOD, and you are a fool!
Moses began serving the LORD when he was eighty years old, and he continued serving HIM perfectly until he was one hundred and twenty years old—forty years of perfect service to the LORD.7 When the children of Israel went through the Red Sea on dry land after GOD had opened it for them, they all became thirsty, and there was no water in the wilderness. So GOD told Moses to smite a rock of flint once (Exodus 17:5-6).8
Now, Moses smiting the rock once was symbolic of CHRIST, the ROCK of AGES, being smitten once in the future for the sins of the world.9 CHRIST was only to die once for the sins of the world, be buried, go to Hell, and on the third day be raised out of Hell from among the dead. Forty days later HE would ascend into Heaven in a cloud before the eyes of over five hundred witnesses.10
But Moses, angered with the people of Israel, got beside himself, and at the last part of his ministry, smote the rock twice for water. Scripture reads in Numbers 20:10-12, “And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
“And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed ME not, to sanctify ME in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.”
Even Moses, after serving GOD forty years, couldn’t change the WORD of GOD without having to die and not being able to enter the Promised Land. He was unable to continue leading the children of Israel into the land of milk and honey.11
Not only did Moses forget the very important symbolic law of CHRIST dying once for the sins of the world, but he took credit from GOD by saying, “Must we fetch you water out of this rock?” instead of saying that GOD (JESUS) brought forth the water, as HE always did on their forty-years journey in the wilderness.12
Proof that JESUS is the ROCK is in 1 Corinthians 10:1-6, which reads, “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same SPIRITUAL meat; And did all drink the same SPIRITUAL drink: for they drank of that SPIRITUAL ROCK that followed them: and that ROCK was CHRIST. But with many of them GOD was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.”
So Moses could not change the WORD of GOD, Satan cannot change the WORD of GOD, the demonic prophets of the world today cannot change the WORD of GOD, and you cannot change the WORD of GOD, no matter who you are, or who you think you are.
Moses tried to talk GOD into letting him cross the river Jordan into the Promised Land, but GOD wouldn’t allow him. GOD means what HE says.13 Deuteronomy 3:25-26 reads, “I pray THEE, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon. But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto ME of this matter.”
Even JESUS, the only begotten SON of the ALMIGHTY GOD, tried three times in prayer to see if GOD the FATHER could come up with another way to save all the souls of humanity rather than having CHRIST suffer the shame of the cross, because it is written that HE despised the shame of the cross. Hebrews 12:2 states: “Looking unto JESUS the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before HIM endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of GOD.” Even though CHRIST was the WORD made flesh, in other words GOD,14 HE still was a human being.15 HE was stripped naked, beaten to a pulp, HIS hair and beard were ripped out, and HE was given many stripes.16
Before all of this, HE prayed three times to the FATHER. Matthew 26:36-45 states: “Then cometh JESUS with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And HE took with HIM Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith HE unto them, MY soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with ME. And HE went a little farther, and fell on HIS face, and prayed, saying, O MY FATHER, if it be possible, let this cup pass from ME: nevertheless not as I will, but as THOU wilt.
“And HE cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with ME one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the SPIRIT indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. HE went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O MY FATHER, if this cup may not pass away from ME, except I drink it, THY will be done. And HE came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. And HE left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. Then cometh HE to HIS disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the SON of MAN is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”
Even the ALMIGHTY GOD, the SON of the LIVING GOD, had to be obedient and go through the shame of the cross.17 If HE hadn’t done this, no person from the Old or New Testament could be saved, because CHRIST died for everybody who will accept HIM.18 If HE had not done this, we would not be saved, and we would be on our way to Hell and the Lake of Fire.19
Hebrews 2:1-3 states: “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the LORD, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard HIM?”
The LORD said if you reject HIM, HE will reject you (2 Timothy 2:12).20 Hosea 4:6 states: “MY people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.” Don’t reject the knowledge of salvation in this literature. Accept the LORD, and HE will accept you. Accept HIM now by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Diligently study the King James Version Bible, and do what it says until the day you die13

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
