Why  the  ‘archaic’  words  are  better

      Archaic words, while often superior to modern language, can also be fun.

      Were you to travel to Scotland, one place you would have to visit would be the home of the Loch Ness Monster.

     "Nessings" is a word that appears only once in your King James Bible:

 Job 41:18  By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

      In his forty-first chapter, job is describing the Leviathan, which is actually the devil himself:  Isaiah 27:1  In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

      Modern Bibles turn the Leviathan into a whale or a sea serpent and miss the prophetic connection to that piercing serpent, that dragon in the sea.

      "Nessings" are sneezes.

     Running the references for the Leviathan (Job 41:1; Psalm 74:14; 104:26; Isaiah 27:1) allows me to pin down the personage that Job was describing, which leaves us to wonder why Satan's sneeze is a light doth shine.

      Perhaps: II Corinthians 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

     No marvel: 2 Corinthians 11:15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

     They stand there is their pulpits festooned in gaudy garments surrounded by Baalite vestments, but all they really are is Satan-spit.   Since the word only appears once in the whole of the Bible, it is doubtful that anyone missed it when the Modern Bibles took it away.  And since the Modern Bibles have also removed the Leviathan it is doubtful any prophetic connections will be made.

Pastor McLean,

I'm sorry to hear of your injury and I'm hopeful your body is on the mend…When I arrived at West Point I broke my right foot…This friend…provided The History of Your Bible and BMAD, which I read and ran all the verses between my NIV and the KJB. Breaking my foot offered me the opportunity to study God's word in a way that I had yet to do…Before I broke my foot, I was possibly an unsaved church-goer, but I emerged a member of Christ's body and, some time later, a mid-Acts Pauline Dispensationalist.

Thank you for that marvelous testimony.  My ankle doesn’t feel any better, but I do.

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNouncement: Because of my current situation, it is likely the posting of the daily blog will have to be later in the morning: I'm shooting for 10 am each day. Thank you for your understanding.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom,y with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. Coverdale
