Reference

On this page, we keep the general information of References that we use in our pages. It includes the terms used to help out those that are unfamiliar with them and also for clarification purposes.

There are terms within Christian practice that need some elaboration to make them clear to the unfamiliar reader and also to enhance understanding as to how the terms are used on the pages of this website.

We will mostly be using the New American Standard Bible (NASB) ~ where the bible source for the text is not quoted it will invariably be from the NASB. This Bible is regarded by most scholars to be the closest word for word bible available today.

When we quote from other source bibles we will put in brackets after the quote the version of the Bible used. Because there are so many respected translations available today it is only proper to quote the source bible used for the quotation.

This page (Click Here)  gives a good indication of a Bibles Literal value or its degree of taint.

Bibles are graded from “Word for Word” translational to “Thought for Though” translation. Obviously, thought for thought translations are tainted by the writers thoughts. If the thoughts were not guided by the Holy Spirit then they would not resonate with the “Spirited” reader.

Lastly, if it is not of God it will not last or survive the test of time. (Acts 5:38-39)


 

Amplified Bible (AMP)
Overview of the Amplified Bible by the Lockman Foundation.
The first complete Bible produced by The Lockman Foundation was the Amplified Bible. The Amplified Bible is a translation that, by using synonyms and definitions, both explains and expands the meaning of words in the text by placing amplification in parentheses and brackets and after key words or phrases. This unique system of translation allows the reader to more completely grasp the meaning of the words as they were understood in the original languages. Through multiple expressions, fuller and more revealing appreciation is given to the divine message as the original text legitimately permits…Read more here : http://www.lockman.org/amplified/

“Translation Tiers:

1. An interlinear Bible to directly follow the Greek and Hebrew texts.
2. A literal translation to take the reader to the core of the Greek and Hebrew meanings.
3. A modern English translation, effective for public reading, memorization, and evangelism.
4. An emphasised translation to bring out the full meaning and intensity of the original texts.

Translation Process: Greek and Hebrew Sources >> Interlinear Bible >> Literal Bible >> Study Bible >> Emphasized Bible

All sources are freely available and linked through to the original source, making the multi-tiered translation process an “open translation.” In other words, the source behind the translation is clear and available to all. The tools and databases include resources such as Strong’s Lexicon to make the translation process transparent even to those without extensive training in Greek and Hebrew.

The three levels are also provide support by enhancing the expression of meaning on multiple levels. For example, since languages often do not translate in a one to one fashion, in many cases the multiple tiers express a fuller or corresponding meaning, as well as both a “word for word” and “thought for thought” rendering.”

Amazing free resource.

English Standard Version (ESV)

Direct quote from the ESV website ; Read more here..

A significant new step of faith for Crossway was the publication of The Holy Bible, English Standard Version in the fall of 2001.

The vision for the ESV Bible began in the early 1990s as many evangelical Christian leaders saw a need for a new “word-for-word” Bible translation—one that would be characterised by precision and literary excellence, in the classic stream of the Tyndale New Testament and the King James Version Bible.

The ESV was created by a sixty-member team of the finest evangelical Bible scholars from around the world, with additional review and input provided by the sixty-member ESV Advisory Council. A twelve-member Translation Oversight Committee, with Dr. J. I. Packer as the General Editor, carried out the overall work of revision, review, and final approval.” Read more here ..

Para

Where the term “Para” has been inserted after a bible quote, in these pages and posts, it means that the quoted text is a Paraphrase. If the Paraphrase in question has a source, the source bible/s will be highlighted.

Please, above all the ultimate word of God is written in the Bible. I encourage you to check anything written and everything written against reputable Bible formats (Amp, KJV, NKJV, NASB, ESV, NIV etc).

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (NASB)

And we ascribed to;

Revelations 22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;
19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book. (NASB)

by example;

Some eight days later the disciples again came together behind closed doors. On this occasion, Thomas, who had some doubt in his heart, was with the rest of the disciples. The doors of the room were shut, when Jesus appeared amongst them, he greeted them “Peace be with you.” Jesus then said to Thomas “Touch me with your fingers and see with your hands the holes in my hands, reach up here with your hand and place it inside me where the spear had pierced my body. It is time for you to stop your unbelief and start believing.” Thomas answered Jesus when he realized the absolute irrefutable truth of the risen Christ, Thomas cried out joyfully and with conviction “My Lord and my God!” Jesus then said to him, “you have believed because of what you have seen. Blessed are those who have not seen, but they believe.” Para {John 20; 26 – 29 (NASB)}

Poetry by Martha Snell Nicholson

Martha Snell Nicholson was a bedridden invalid who suffered from four incurable diseases.   She struggled with pain for over 35 years.  After being an invalid for many years, her loving husband, who she depended on, died suddenly.  Through all her pain and suffering came some of the finest Christian poetry ever written.  May you be blessed by reading her spiritually rich and heartfelt poetry which exalt Jesus, her Saviour.

 


Interpretations of how text is used in these pages;

of the flesh” ~ people that do not believe in the Triune God.

of the Spirit” ~ those that can cry out in their hearts body and soul that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in the Triune God. They do not eat bread alone but feed off the Word.

the Triune God” ~  the Trinity consisting of God the eternal Father (“I am who I am”), Jesus Christ his Son (the Son of Man)  and the eternal helper the Holy Spirit. (Holy Ghost)

DoC” ~ Disciple of Christ. Passionate followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Following the commands as given by Christ to his disciples. Define DoC ; you have the condition of DoC, inflicted and contaminated by the Christ Himself. His Holy Spirit will continue to do a good work in you until it is finished. He is already your Lord and saviour, but it depends on you whether you recognise that or not. As an afflicted DoC you are subjected to John 15 ; 1-17. ( Definition of DoC )

pfoJC” ~ Passionate follower/s of Jesus Christ – when your mind knows; when your heart shouts; your body actions; and your Spirit sings “Jesus is Lord” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:3B “and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. ” (NASB) ~ and as Thomas answered Jesus when he realized the absolute unrefutable truth of the risen Christ, Thomas cried out joyfully and with conviction “My Lord and my God!Luvacta becomes the embodiment of the sacrificial Christ in us.

luvacta” ~ luvacta is the process of putting love into action. It costs a person to do luvacta. It is when a person, individual, acts and does something that he could have avoided doing, but because he loves he acts. Define luvacta ; because you love you act. The ultimate luvacta is Jesus dying on the cross for your sins. Luvacta is feeding the poor. This is love in action because God has changed your heart and you act as a result of that change of heart. The more you are infested by the Holy Spirit and respond to the Holy Spirit the more you will be a victim to luvacta. The danger of being luvactaed is you will suffer crucifixion. Luvacta infestation is a fruit of the Spirit. The true love of Christ in you will be completed by luvacta which costs and takes expense by you. (Galatians 5:22 – 23) Loving our Triune God and following Jesus will be an act of luvacta. (Romans 8:13-15,17) Also, see http://www.pfojc.org/luvacta/ for a full definition and writeup. Further information on luvacta can be found at luvacta see also Luvacta.org at: http://luvacta.org/
