Election and Predestination: Ephesians 1:4-5     

      Calvin’s doctrines of election were not based on his remarkable Bible study and understanding. They were based on his remarkable ignorance.” Pg 18 These are the Words of the 1689 Confession of Faith: “By the decree of God, for the manifestation of His glory, some men and angels are predestinated, or foreordained to eternal life through Jesus Christ … to the praise of His glorious grace … others being left to act in their sin to their just condemnation, to the praise of His glorious justice …” Contrast this with the Wonderful Words of Jesus Christ Himself: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). A select few OR Whosoever? Only a few OR ANYONE can be saved?

Parallel Greek Received Text and King James Version The New Testament     

      The Greek New Testament is the 1881 printing of the Textus Receptus edited by Frederick H. A. Scrivener, a well-respected late nineteenth century scholar. The Textus Receptus (TR), also called the Received Text, is a printed Greek New Testament that is based on the vast majority of ancient hand-written New Testament manuscripts. This massive quantity of manuscripts is called the Traditional or Byzantine Text. The King James Version New Testament was translated from the Received Text. The TR was first published in 1516. This volume is similar to interlinears, in that it compares the Greek and English. However, it differs with many interlinears in that it does not include a separate “literal” translation. Interlinears often include a new translation or a so-called “literal” translation. The implication is that the “literal” translation is more correct than the popular translation (such as the KJV), because it is “literal.” However, literal does not always mean “literal.” Most Greek words can be translated in various ways, so the word chosen by the translator as the literal translation may actually not be the best word in the context. The KJV is a translation that has stood the dual tests of time and God’s scrutiny. For over four hundred years, God has placed His stamp of approval on it. He has used the KJV and the TR for every great movement of world-wide evangelism since 1611. Even today, with all the new translations and the interlinears, the KJV is still a worldwide best seller every year.

The New Testament: The Greek Textus Receptus 1881 Edition By F.H. A. Scrivener Reformatted Global Edition     

      This book comes in a perfect bound as well as a hardback edition. The Greek New Testament is the 1881 printing of the Textus Receptus edited by Frederick H. A. Scrivener, a well-respected late nineteenth century scholar. The Textus Receptus (TR), also called the Received Text, is a printed Greek New Testament that is based on the vast majority of ancient hand-written New Testament manuscripts. This massive quantity of manuscripts is called the Traditional or Byzantine Text. The King James Version New Testament was translated from the Received Text. The TR was first published in 1516.

      God is the God of history. In light of that fact, we should take a close look at what God was doing at that time. God was making preparation for a major change in history. Another text was being prepared in Spain, but God wanted the TR to be published first so that it would be available to be used in the upcoming Reformation, when Europe rebelled against the Catholic Church. The Reformation began in 1517 (the year following it’s first publication) when Martin Luther posted his ninety-five theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany. The second edition in 1519 became the basis of Martin Luther’s German translation. Later, the Received Text became the basis for many translations, including the King James Version. God made a deliberate choice of the Received Text to start and move the Reformation. He has used the KJV and the TR for every great movement of world-wide evangelism since 1516. The current mission movement has its origin in the 1790’s through the reading of the KJV, a TR translation, by William Carey. The Received Text is the inspired word of God in Greek.

A Practical Theology of Bible Translating: What Does the Bible Teach About Bible Translating for All Nations     

The Study of translating is one of the most important in modern times and probably one of the most neglected. All Christians will profit from this book. You will be inspired, challenged and enlightened by this must-read book. A careful reading of this book will assist translators around the world to come to a knowledge of what God expects from those handling His Words “to make them known.” Man cannot and should not assume that he can establish the “rules’ for how to “make them known,” because God has “ magnified [His] word above all [His] name” (Psalm 138:2f),and the following verse indicates how high He has exalted His name. This book shows the “why” and the “how” to carry over God’s Words into the languages of the world, according to God’s standards, not man’s. This book is not just for translators. It is for all Christians who love the Word of God. Textual scholars have taught us that we still do not yet fully know what the original Scriptures said. They tell us all our Bibles have places that are uncertain and may have errors. But, God has inspired and preserved all His Words. We can be fully confident that every word of God is available to us. This book can build confidence in the Bible. It will lift your view of God’s Word and encourage your faith. Dr. Combs’ qualifications to author this book are evident by his extensive research and teaching of translation. He has spent many years consulting with translators, studying and gleaning from the scriptures. He has modeled the importance of using Biblical principles to produce a faithful, accurate and true translation of God's Word. Writing about this vital topic is the result of labor that has been years in the making. You will be inspired, challenged and enlightened by this must-read book.

The Fellowship of the Mystery: The Book of Ephesians     

The Book of Ephesians tells us about a mystery kept secret since the foundation of the world. The book is about learning “what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ” (Eph. 3:9).

The book reveals a life of strength and a life of wisdom and a life of power and a life of victory in a troubled world. Successful living depends on following God’s instructions for life. The Book of Ephesians reveals God’s instructions on:

Our Spiritual Blessings in Him

 Election and Predestination

Dispensation of the Fullness of Times

Unity of the Church in Christ

Doctrinal Truth and Purity

 Unity of Love in the Church

Moral living in a Dark World

 The Filling of the Spirit

 What is Christian Music?

 Marriage: a Picture of the Church

 Children and Fathers

 Other Relationships

 The Warfare of the Church

      The Book of Ephesians is also the greatest book in the New Testament on the doctrine of the church. It reveals the spiritual nature of the church as well as an emphasis on the doctrinal, love, and moral unity of the church. It deals with false doctrine about the church, salvation, and what God is doing in this dispensation. It gives you a foundation for living a successful Christian life. With this book, you may partake with Paul in the fellowship of the mystery.

The Power of the Gospel, A Survey of Romans

 

“Who am I, Who is God, why was I born, where am I going? The future, life after death, eternal happiness, victory and fulfillment in life: these are the subjects of the Book of Romans. All the great questions of life are answered in its pages. Romans explains the gospel; that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins and rose physically from the dead three days later. Eternal life and all the benefits God reveals in the book of Romans come to us through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection. Dr. Steve Combs is a Baptist minister. He spent his early years in Kentucky, Virginia, and finally Ohio. He was not raised in a Christian home. He had some Christian influence from his grandmother, but that had little effect on him. Due to discussions with a Baptist preacher and a Sunday School teacher, who visited his home, he began to read the Bible. The Word of God had its effect. He came under strong conviction of his sins. A friend invited him to a nearby church during revival meetings. As a result, he received Christ as his Savior. Since then there have been major transformations to his life. God called him to preach and enabled a backward shy individual suffering from an inferiority complex to stand before crowds and confidently proclaim the Word of God. God gave him a business background as a CPA and put him in several ministry positions. He has served as a Bible Institute teacher, a youth pastor, and a senior pastor. He holds a Doctor of Theology from Covington Theological Seminary. Currently, Steve Combs is Assistant Director and a Global Translation Advisor for Bearing Precious Seed Global/ Global Bible Translators, www.bpsglobal.com. BPS Global starts and assists Bible translation projects around the world. He is married and has four married children.
