No, CERN And The Mandela Effect Has Not Changed The King James Bible

Our eyes and brains are being bombarded by light and sounds and words. Our brains are being rewired, and our sense of reality is changing.

“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalm 12:6,7 (KJV)

It is called the Mandela Effect.

The Mandela Effect is a theory put forth by writer and “paranormal consultant” Fiona Broome who theorizes that false memories are in fact glimpses into parallel worlds with different timelines. The phrase was coined after African president Nelson Mandela who many people claimed to remembered him dying in prison back in the 1980’s. Of course, Nelson Mandela did not die in prison in the 1980’s but more recently in the year 2013.

Here are some examples that Mandela Effect advocates say were “changed” when time travelers used the CERN reactor go into the past which resulted in inadvertent “changes in the matrix”:

  • The children’s book Berenstain Bears used to be called Berenstein Bears.
  • Billy Graham’s funeral was televised even though as of this writing he is still very much alive.
  • Jif peanut butter used to be called Jiffy but now it’s not.

Yes, I know they sound silly – but – this is believed by a rapidly growing number of people who think it’s true. I know a librarian, and one of her favorite kid’s books was the Berenstain Bears when her son was in grade school. He always thought it was funny that it said “stain” instead of “stein”, but that is the original spelling. People call it Jiffy peanut butter because they are confusing it with Skippy peanut butter. Billy Graham has been in ill health for a number of years now, and his absence naturally makes people assume he passed away when in fact he has not. I could give more example but I think you get the point. What I really want to talk about is how this might affect God’s preserved word – the King James Bible.

God’s promise to preserve His word for all generations still stands

As of this writing, there are over 350 different and differing versions of the Bible, with more appearing every year. Since the one thing all these versions have in common is that they are all different, the potential for mass confusion is great. But for the last 405 years, the King James Bible has existed to present God’s true and preserved word to a lost and dying world. In the Bible verse at the top of this article you see God’s promise to preserve His word on this Earth forever. That promise remains unbroken. But Mandela Effect advocates say that even this has been changed due to CERN time travel. Well, in order for that to be true, God’s promise of preservation would have to be broken and that is simply not possible.

There is no machine that man can create that is capable of undoing the smallest of the promises of God, much less to go back in time and change what He Himself has preserved. So with that, let’s look at the main example where Mandela Effect advocates say CERN time travel has changed the God’s preserved word.

THE LION SHALL LIE DOWN WITH THE LAMB: Everyone knows that the Bible says that, in the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ, that the “lion shall lie down with the lamb”, right? But a quick trip to Isaiah shows that not to the case. Whoa! How can that be?:

“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.”Isaiah 11:6 (KJV)

Mandela EffectThe Mandela Effect people tout this verse as the number one example of how CERN time travel has “changed the Bible”, but is it so? The answer is, of course, no it is not so. Isaiah 11 has always said it will be the “wolf and the lamb” lying down together. The problem is not many Christians spend a whole lot of time actually reading the Bible and memorizing it’s passages. Isaiah rightly said “wolf” and not “lion” because of what the wolf represents, namely the Devil. During the 1,000 Year Reign of Jesus in Jerusalem, Satan will be bound the entire time, right? But his people will continue to dwell with God’s people, side by side. How do we know this? Because the Bible says that as soon as Satan is released from his chains, he immediately is able to raise up an army to come against Jesus Christ in the Battle of Gog and Magog. See for yourself:

“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.” Revelation 20:7-9 (KJV)

Satan’s army is raised up from all the people who just spent 1,000 years under the rule of Jesus. They were the “wolves” lying side by side with God’s “lambs”. Isaiah was right, and a swift application of 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) reveals these “deeper nuggets” of Bible doctrine and prophecy. But people have misquoted the verse from Isaiah 11 because over the years they have listened to too many illustrations, videos and songs using the phrase “lion and the lamb”. Combine that with a lack of Bible study of what God’s word actually says, and there you have it. Revelation 5:5,6 (KJV) tells you all about the real Lion and the Lamb. Jesus is both the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, as well as the Lamb slain from before the foundation of the world. It makes no sense for Isaiah to  have Jesus lying down with Himself. But the wolf with the lamb is Bible prophecy.

Now, we could do what we just did with all the rest of the examples given by the Mandela Effect people to say that the King James Bible has been changed. God’s preserved word has not been changed, neither will it ever be. But there is something that has changed which I think might be the real Mandela Effect.

The amount of time that people are now spending on social media, sharing stories, memes and events from the day has skyrocketed. Slick looking satire sites with fake news, like the Babylon Bee, present satire and phony “news” but in a very convincing manner. On a near daily basis I reach out to friends who have inadvertently shared an fake article thinking it was real. I have watched countless times as a fake story gets shared over hundreds of groups on Facebook, adopted by thousands of people, leading to outrage over the article’s premise but completely fake at the same time. Yet everyone knows that “it’s true” nonetheless. Do you see what’s happening here?

We have become saturated in news, both real and fake, all delivered to use by the pulsing, glowing eye of our monitors, tablets and smart devices. Our eyes and brains are being bombarded by light and sounds and words. The end result being our brains are being rewired, and our sense of reality is changing. But it is not due to the CERN reactor and time travel disrupting the Matrix.

We are doing it to ourselves. Want to see how addicted you’ve really become? Just trying unplugging from everything online, for a mere 30 days and see how you feel. See if you can even last that long. Maybe you better start off with just a week. How about 72 hours?

That’s the real Mandela Effect.

EU LINKS UP WITH TWITTER, TECH FIRMS TO COMBAT HATE SPEECH

The European Union reached an agreement Tuesday with some of the world’s biggest social media firms, including Facebook and Twitter, on ways to combat the spread of hate speech online. The EU is Coming to Close Down Your Free Speech, SO FREE SPEECH BIG CHILL!

  • The German Chancellor was not interested in the reinforcement of Europe’s external borders, the re-erection of its internal borders, the institution of a workable asylum vetting system and the repatriation of people who had lied to gain entry into Europe. Instead, Chancellor Merkel wanted to know how Facebook’s founder could help her restrict the free speech of Europeans, on Facebook and on other social media.
  • Then, on May 31, the European Union announced a new online speech code to be enforced by four major tech companies, including Facebook and YouTube.
  • It was clear from the outset that Facebook has a definitional problem as well as a political bias in deciding on these targets. What is Facebook’s definition of ‘racism’? What is its definition of ‘xenophobia’? What, come to that, is its definition of ‘hate speech’?
  • Of course the EU is a government — and an unelected government at that — so its desire not just to avoid replying to its critics — but to criminalise their views and ban their contrary expressions — is as bad as the government of any country banning or criminalising the expression of opinion which is not adulatory of the government.
  • People must speak up — must speak up now, and must speak up fast — in support of freedom of speech before it is taken away from them. It is, sadly, not an overstatement to say that our entire future depends on it.

It is nine months since Angela Merkel and Mark Zuckerberg tried to solve Europe’s migrant crisis. Of course having caused the migrant crisis by announcing the doors of Europe as open to the entire third-world, Angela Merkel particularly would have been in a good position actually to try to solve this crisis.

But the German Chancellor was not interested in the reinforcement of Europe’s external borders, the re-erection of its internal borders, the institution of a workable asylum vetting system and the repatriation of people who had lied to gain entry into Europe. Instead, Chancellor Merkel was interested in Facebook.

When seated with Mark Zuckerberg, Frau Merkel wanted to know how the Facebook founder could help her restrict the free speech of Europeans, on Facebook and on other social media. Speaking to Zuckerberg at a UN summit last September (and not aware that the microphones were picking her up) she asked what could be done to restrict people writing things on Facebook which were critical of her migration policy. ‘Are you working on this?’ she asked him. ‘Yeah’, Zuckerberg replied.

In the months that followed, we learned that this was not idle chatter over lunch. In January of this year, Facebook launched its ‘Initiative for civil courage online’, committing a million Euros to fund non-governmental organisations in its work to counter ‘racist’ and ‘xenophobic’ posts online. It also promised to remove ‘hate speech’ and expressions of ‘xenophobia’ from the Facebook website.

It was clear from the outset that Facebook has a definitional problem as well as a political bias in deciding on these targets. What is Facebook’s definition of ‘racism’? What is its definition of ‘xenophobia’? What, come to that, is its definition of ‘hate speech’? As for the political bias, why had Facebook not previously considered how, for instance, to stifle expressions of open-borders sentiments on Facebook? There are many people in Europe who have argued that the world should have no borders and that Europe in particular should be able to be lived in by anyone who so wishes. Why have people expressing such views on Facebook (and there are many) not found their views censored and their posts removed? Are such views not ‘extreme’?

EDITOR’S NOTE: While removing speech that directly calls for violence is a good thing, the definition of what ‘hate speech’ is remains a little murky. For example, will it be considered hate speech for the Bible believing Christian to say that homosexuality is wrong and that transgender men should not be in the ladies bathroom? Something tells me this is exactly where we are headed. 

Under the terms of a code of conduct, the firms, which also include You Tube and Microsoft, have committed to “quickly and efficiently” tackle illegal hate speech directed against anyone over issues of race, color, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin. The sites have often been used by terrorist organizations to relay messages and entice hatred against certain individuals or groups.

Among the measures agreed with the EU’s executive arm, the firms have said they will establish internal procedures and staff training to guarantee that a majority of illegal content is assessed and, where necessary, removed within 24 hours. They have also agreed to strengthen their partnerships with civil society organizations who often flag content that promotes incitement to violence and hateful conduct. The European Commission and the firms have also agreed to support civil society organizations to deliver “anti-hate campaigns.”

“The internet is a place for free speech, not hate speech,” said Vera Jourova, the EU commissioner responsible for justice, consumers and gender equality. She added that the code of conduct, which will be regularly reviewed in terms of its scope and its impact, will ensure that public incitement to violence to hatred has “no place online.”

The firms themselves say there’s no conflict between their mission statements to promote the freedom of expression and clamping down on hate speech.

CensoredTwitter, which has been at the center of much of the hate speech that’s spread online over the past few years, says it will continue to tackle the issue “head-on” along with partners in industry and civil society.

“We remain committed to letting the Tweets flow,” said Twitter’s European head of public policy Karen White. “However, there is a clear distinction between freedom of expression and conduct that incites violence and hate.”

And Facebook’s head of global policy management Monika Bickert urged the company’s 1.6 billion users to use the site’s in-built reporting tools in the event they find content they consider unacceptable.

“Our teams around the world review these reports around the clock and take swift action,” she said.

People must speak up — and speak up now, and speak up fast — in support of freedom of speech before it is taken away from them, and against the authorities who would silence all of us. It is, sadly, not an overstatement to say that our entire future depends on it.

“Always Abounding
in the Work of the Lord”

“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” 1 Peter 4:10

This ministry work would be furthered in the hearts of men and blessed to have you assist us in any of the following ways (email at bottom). We are all Christ’s disciples, servants, and friends (John 15). As blood-bought members of Jesus’ body, we are all just regular people – former sinners now saved by His glorious grace – who have His desire inside of us to help others grow in His grace and for lost souls to be saved/rescued before it’s too late (Luke 19:10; Mark 4:19). Each of us know inside that our time is short – we have a very limited window and must act now. Many who read these words desire and have even prayed for something to do for Jesus.

So that we are all on GOD’s page per se, I want to encourage you to read the 4-chapter book of Colossians. Please pray before you begin and as you study these words of our LORD, ask Him to reveal His heart, wisdom, truth, and full-counsel to you. Ask Him to reveal Himself – Jesus Christ – to you. Don’t miss the apostle Paul’s warnings and 1:28 which gives us the PWT principle of preaching, WARNING, and teaching. Here’s a brief help to launch you and your life into a higher orbit with Jesus! – Colossal Colossians!

By His grace, our whole goal is simply to magnify and elevate and uphold Jesus Christ and no mere man or ministry (Colossians 1:18; 2:18-19). He alone is worthy and He “must increase” but we “must decrease.” (John 3:30) Read 2 Corinthians 1:9; 3:5; 4:5.

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

Let’s abound in the work of the Lord together beloved. Read 1 Corinthians 3:6-9.

OPPORTUNITIES/NEEDS

– Most prolific, prevalent opportunity: Disciples of Jesus who will push out/publish links with teaser lines on social media. This will create feeding, edification, rebuke, exhortation, encouragement, and binding and sealing divine truth among Christ’s remnant disciples who will in turn begin communicating His Word (Isaiah 8:16). Peruse, be edified by, and publish pages on the ministry site. It’s a large resource covering dozens of important biblical topics. If you have social media accounts, please join us in pushing out the Scripture-rich resources on https://whatshotn.me/  – articles, outlines, study guides, books, etc.

Word Press Expert for advice and tech support at times or more ….(for website updates, new plug-ins/enhancements and website translated in different languages)

Money. This ministry work is about Christ alone and offers the opportunity for us all to “lay up” treasure with our LORD, in His safe keeping (Matthew 6:19-24). Setting up a recurring gift is extremely vital to the operation of this work. Please realize that no organization or even one rich person bothers to support this work. One person gave $5.00 once and that, to a degree, is what determines how many people we can reach (printing soul-winning Gospel tracts, giving away books to help Christians grow in Christ, etc.).

Translations of books into the following languages:

  • Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Russian
  • Polish
  • German

Graphic artist(s) needed (cutting edge)

Financial gifts to help the ministry operate at optimal fruitfulness (John 15:16)

  • Monthly Sponsorship’s (E-Mail).
  • One Time Gift (E-Mail)

Air Miles for mission trips
– Again: Ministry via replies and postings on Facebook and other social media sites. Getting God’s Word out via social media platforms.

Now because money is so important in this world, it is very difficult to develop the right mindset about it. This is when the practice of tithing a specific percent, even though it is no longer required, can be a very helpful way to develop the right attitude about money. By making ourselves give away some specific percent, we remind ourselves that all our money is God’s in the first place.


Donate Button with Credit Cards
 

So far for this donation drive to provide food for the hungry and homeless, We have received nothing to put into the food bank, many have seen it and have done nothing, what a sad day this truly is looking at them and not being able to give them food for their belly, that is one of the few commands Jesus gave us to do! the ones who turn their backs on the hungry their Christianity is in question! How can I say that? I didn’t Jesus did! Remember His message about the sheep and the goats?
