Why King James Only?

Far too many Christians walk in blinded self-imposed ignorance and whenever they happen upon a child of God proclaiming or sharing a Rapture watch date, these cretinous creatures – whose mouths must be stopped (Titus 1:11) – jump in and start squawking like parrots, “NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR HOUR” Matthew 24:36 – Mark 13:32.
The dull, content, sleeping Christian is content in going to their religious building and hearing their pastor tell them, “Remember, no man knows the day or hour,” and they leave, smiling, knowing they are not burdened with the high things of God and are quite at ease and comfortable in their bliss.
It isn’t as painful dealing with a scoffer who’s a shill, troll, or concerned Atheist hell bent on bringing more to hell with them, but when the scoffer is a supposed Christian, it seems to be more difficult to deal with. Not that they get under the skin more than a good troll does, but the pain in knowing the so-called Christian is probably – most likely a CHINO (Christian in name only). Why I’d say this is because those who are truly Children of God have the Spirit of Truth abiding in them and are able to discern spiritual things and the word of God is clear to them, especially regarding important and essential doctrine. In my years writing Blogs and posting YouTube videos. I’ve honestly had to block more CHINOs than trolls or Atheists.
Another staggering phenomenon is in 99 % of the instances I’ve personally been attacked by or witnessed other watchmen being attacked for posting a Rapture watch date, we had NEVER stated a precise certain “God showed me this date” or “Thus saith the Lord, Jesus Christ will come back on Sunday morning November 15, this year at 1040 GMT.”
No, I’ve even stated I’m watching this Spring during Passover through Pentecost and sure enough I’ll get some CHINO tell me that I’m not to set dates. I used to waste my time trying to explain that I’m not setting a specific date or tell them Matthew 24:36 or Mark 13:32 isn’t referring to the Church or the Rapture etc. To no avail they squawk away, “No man knows! No man knows! Not even Jesus. That’s what the Bible says! Go read your Bible!”
This study is proof using solid Bible scripture that the Church is NOT forbidden or cautioned against date setting and telling others to watch for some time frame or some special date. WATCH is the keyword here. Not only are we NOT forbidden to watch and encourage each other with times and dates to look up with excitement, we are ENCOURAGED to watch and tell others.
Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:32 ARE NOT written for the Body of Christ. This was referring specifically to the time of sorrows, the time of Jacob’s Trouble.
I need to provide this in-depth study to prove by substantiating scripture rightly divided the undeniable truth that the Church (BODY OF CHRIST – not your Laodicean religion in the brick-and-mortar 501C3 building operation run by apostate trained CEOs called pastors) is not to be in slumber, in the dark and unaware. But rather we are to be awake, and we are to seek and study and pray and know (the regenerated spirit knows) and understand (the renewed mind understands what the spirit knows) the season, day and hour of our redemption and to prepare, share, encourage and to warn those who are asleep. The unsaved hear other Christian parrots squawking, no man knows, and they are confused and figure there goes those strange Christians again.
The Bible scholars have no problem dismissing that God chose not to reveal to man and even the angels the hour of the end known also as the beginning of sorrows, the time of Jacob’s trouble known as the Tribulation. However, in Mark 13:32 when Jesus says he doesn’t even know, the monkey wrench is thrown into the works of bible academia. It’s been stated that these passages are the most difficult to interpret in the New Testament. However, these Cretian mockers, these CHINOs love to use this and say, “Look Jesus doesn’t even know.”… Yes, Mark 13:32 is the SEAL THE DEAL, CLOSED CASE scripture for the scoffers.
It’s so amazing that it is here – precisely here we’re given a treasure of knowledge to understand. We are commanded by God to STUDY to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed. 2 Timothy 2:15. Here we find that we must apply solid hermeneutics using the KING JAMES BIBLE and truthfully allowing scripture to interpret scripture in context instead of taking scripture and adding one’s own philosophical flavor of logic of man’s vain imagination steeped in religion.
Subsequently, I will present this study in two parts building up the foundation to the final analysis explaining that the true Church – The Body of Christ is capable of knowing the season, day, hour of our redemption. Scoffers and dull bible teachers and so-called “preachers” call those like me fools on a fool’s errand. These scoffers and ignorant are no different than the sleeping Pharisees who stood in the midst of the Messiah and didn’t even realize it.
Can I stand here and say I know without a doubt the Rapture will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022 @ 1430 GMT? Yes, I sure could, and I pray it does. If I did, however, I would be a fool because I honestly do not have this information, nor does anyone else at this time. However, as we draw closer to the day, more and more information is shared and studied thanks to the internet. Undoubtedly, we have times bracketed in and the collective focus is refining sharper and sharper.
I am very certain that this coming Spring through the Summer 2022 is a very high Rapture watch time based on the compiled preponderance of biblical eschatological evidence as compared to current events; i.e., wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famine, pestilence, social unrest, great apostasy – the Laodicean church – The Third Day Prophecy In the Third Day: The Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy, Or, An Exposition of Hosea 6:2 by Tom Stewart (whatsaiththescripture.com) – The Seventh Day Prophecy ‘7th Day’: End Of All Human History (Updated) | World News + Prophecy (theprophecies.com)The Revelation 12 Sign of 2017, etc all combined with and the timeline of The Fig Tree generation and the Nation of Israel being established in May 1948.
I’m always excited to see new videos WATCHING WITH Revelation Chapter 12 sign. com Brother Paul.
In fact, there’s a current video out from a young man Stephen Dexter that is outstanding and has the watchers excited. No doubt he’ll get attacked for date setting.

Will Jesus make His Second Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on the exact same day as His first? He seems to have been alluding to the appointed day of His return in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. And this day just so happens to fit perfectly within the narrow window of time left for the Fig Tree Generation. And when you apply the day counts provided in the Book of Daniel it unveils an absolutely astonishing parallel of events that occur on God’s perfect timeline. History is repeating itself, but everything is about to change!
Do I set dates? Absolutely! Am I afraid of date setting? Absolutely NOT! I set dates every day believing in the imminent aspect of the Rapture and knowing there has to be order and symbolic spiritual significance in appointed times and events. For the Watchmen this becomes especially during high watch times and events.
Please take the time to read why “Waiting For the Rapture is Like Waiting for Dad to come home.”
I watch and subscribe to YouTube Channels that are excited and encourage the Saints and look at different dates. One that is never failing is Brother Chooch and Keegan at TOL End Times: RAPTURE WATCH. Are they following scripture regarding the Pretribulation Rapture about looking at dates? Absolutely: Paul writes: 1 Thessalonians Chapter 4:16-18
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
As a witness of scripture interpreting scripture: Our NEW GOSPEL OF GRACE 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – Not the Kingdom Gospel as written for the JEWS in Jesus’ first advent and will repeat in the Tribulation: Matthew 3:2, Matthew 10:5-7, Acts 2:21, 38, Joel 2:32, Zechariah 13:9, Matthew 24; Luke 21, Romans 10:9,10,24-27. (Note: Many Christians do not realize that although the book of Romans is part of the Pauline Epistles and written to the CHURCH.
Paul makes a literary interlude – set aside – for Chapters 9 – 11 of Romans to address the JEWS during the time of Jacob’s Trouble and to remind the Christians to stay away from Replacement Theology (The church replaces Israel). Paul reminds Christians that God has NOT forgotten HIS PEOPLE, the REMNANT who will be saved during the Tribulation. Many foolish Christians teach that Salvation requires both 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and the requirement to CALL upon the name of Jesus to be saved. Calling is a work requisite in the Kingdom Gospel see Acts 2:21, Joel 2:32, and Matthew 3:2 10:5-7, and Revelation 7:9, 12:11 compared to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.
1 Corinthians 15:51-55
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Understanding the difference between the Church and Jews – Understanding the Gospel of the KINGDOM vs The Gospel of GRACE.
This is a major stumbling block for many Christians. I see it every day. Some of the most disturbing confrontations I’ve had with so called Christians is over this issue.
The Premier Scripture to dispute the application of this verse to the church is found in 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
People who foolishly use KINGDOM GOSPEL scripture for the church, the body of Christ for today will be Judged at the BEMA SEAT and their works burned for striving unlawfully. If they’re not saved their words to quench the spirit of the saints will be used most vividly at their Great White Throne Judgment. See my studies on Striving Lawfully and God keeps Memorials:
The modern day Judaizers, Scoffers, Post Tribulation believers, and even those who believe in our blessed hope but who do not study the word of God and rightly divide it (2 Timothy 2:15) use Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32 scripture to quench the spirit of those of us who are watchers and look for our redemption the end time events unfolding before us. This is serious with serious eternal consequences.
Matthew 24:36 or Mark 13:32 is NOT given to the Church (body of Christ – not the Laodicean religious 501C3 building operations run by apostate trained CEOs called pastors). This scripture is given to the disciples from Jesus Christ for them to record this information for the JEWS who would be going through the time of Jacob’s Trouble.
The Kingdom Dispensation had been removed by Jesus Christ after the blasphemous words of the Pharisees in Matthew 12 when they committed the unpardonable sin of blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Read Matthew 21:43 which fulfilled Isaiah 28:16 Jesus told Israel the Kingdom of God shall be taken away from you. It was in Matthew 13 Jesus Christ pronounced the 8 Kingdom Parables – 4 of the curses that would define the end of this age and 4 parables that describe the future Millennial Kingdom. Beginning in Matthew Chapter 22 Jesus ceases to preach the Kingdom of God and only the Kingdom of Heaven (the future physical kingdom of the Millennial Reign after the Tribulation) is preached. See my studies on this in Blog
After the Rapture of the church, the Age of Grace will have expired, and the world will be under a new dispensation which will be composed of the Kingdom Gospel (Matthew 24:14) which is works based salvation (Matthew 24:13).
See complete study of Dispensations in link – under the heading of Dispensations.
During the time of Jacob’s Trouble, the world will be under the complete Evangelization from supernatural forces of the 2 Witnesses (Revelation 11), from the 144,000 male virgin Jews, and from the Evangelizing Angel flying across the sky covering the entire world (Revelation 14:6,7).
Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth to fully Understand What God is telling His Children in this late hour
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
That day is referring to verse 35 of Matthew 24 which is strictly referring to the Day of the Lord which is the Time of Jacob’s Trouble also known as the Tribulation. THIS IS NOT THE RAPTURE. Study the context of Matthew 24 to understand and to further understand please study Isaiah 34:4, 51:6, 55:11, Matthew 5:18, Revelation 6:14, Zechariah chapters 12 and 14; Joel Chapter 3, Jeremiah 30. Some say that since the Tribulation follows the Rapture it is closely applied to the Rapture and therefore, we still are not to know the Day or Hour.
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the Kingdom Gospels. We in the age of Grace have the GOSPEL of GRACE. So many fail or refuse to see the difference between the KINGDOM GOSPEL and The GOSPEL OF GRACE given to Paul from Jesus Christ. How much clearer can this be?
Jesus said: “I am NOT sent BUT unto the Lost Sheep of Israel”. Matthew 15:24. And I came to preach the Kingdom Gospel Matthew 4:17. Paul said, “I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you…by which you are saved… how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. And that he was buried and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.
See the vast and crucial difference
Now, what about We the Saints? Scripture is extremely clear that we are not to be left in the dark but are to study by rightly dividing scripture (2 Timothy 2:15). In doing so we Saints read carefully and meditate upon 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5 1-11. We know that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night (for the Jews and unsaved Gentiles). They will get a horrendous wakeup call when they find out their peace and safety has been removed and the temple desecration by the Antichrist during the mid-tribulation takes place.
Here we see a tremendous understanding of Matthew 24:36 which proves why the Kingdom GOSPEL is so incompatible with the GOSPEL OF GRACE. It all stems from who we are IN CHRIST as compared to the lost sheep of Israel.
Ephesians Chapter 2:8,9 tells us that we are saved by Grace through FAITH and NOT works. However in the Kingdom Gospel – SALVATION always requires works = Calling on the name of the Lord, Repenting, Baptizing PLUS Faith.
HOWEVER, WE SAINTS ARE NOT IN DARKNESS, THAT THAT DAY OVERTAKE US AS A THIEF. We are the children of the LIGHT and the children of the DAY. We do not sleep as the others but are WATCHING and vigilant (We look for our reward – crown of RIGHTEOUSNESS Who love the appearance of our Lord in the Rapture (2 Timothy 4:8). Amen! I have this scripture posted in my bedroom and look at it every day and night. I have scriptures, salvation and guidelines for survival in the tribulation in my home. I have bibles and extra food and water, supplies, guns, ammunition, in my home for those who will be left behind giving them one more chance.
Amen! We are not like the children of the night, we are NOT in darkness like the children of the night. God wants us to understand exactly what is going on and when to expect prophetic events. We who will be caught up are NOT unaware like the thief in the night, like the time of Noah, like the time of Lot. (Matthew 24, Luke 17) we are not appointed to wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9) . We know this and we call out as watchmen on the wall. Look at all the YouTube videos. Look at my sister Lisa Watchwoman 65. She desperately pleads and gives the scripture for salvation almost daily. Look at Brother Terry Malone at Calvary Prophecy. There are many other watchmen – forgive me if I haven’t mentioned your name, and they know time is short and they are shouting loud and clear.
What else does God tell his people about knowing the dates and times?
Amos Chapter 3:7 and Ezekiel 33:1-5. Scripture with Scripture – if corresponding Old Testament scripture harmonizes with the Age of Grace it is most applicable.
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
Paul tells us that God wants his children to be awake and know the times. Amos tells us that God does nothing without revealing it to his servants the prophets. The prophets have written, we are tasked to study and watch.
In fact the watchmen who are awake are to WARN. Ezekiel 33. This is harmonized with the age of Grace throughout the end of Acts 20:31 and the Epistles of Paul Ephesians’ elders.
This leaves us with being awake and aware. Each day we find more and connect more dots to “high watch dates”.
Now, to further understand the reason the JEWS were not to know the days and times or seasons, why would Jesus tell them that NOT EVEN him or the angels knew when the beginning of the Tribulation would begin?
They were cursed in that they would be blinded and not know. Jesus confirmed this and fulfilled scriptures by openly saying that no man, not the angels and not even the son had the knowledge of an event that was not to be revealed to the JEWS but the Body of Christ has full knowledge in this dispensation of GRACE testified by several scriptures including Ephesians Chapters 1 and 2, Colossians Chapters 1 and 2.
Israel (The Saved Remnant) and The Church are two completely distinct groups of people under entirely different dispensations and plans for salvation and including their relationship with vs in Christ.
Paul clearly outlines this distinction in Romans 11:7-11.
The church however shares explicitly and increases in the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. We are spiritually “raptured” into the kingdom of Jesus Christ – the Kingdom of God spiritually. Colossians 1:9-13 . We abide in Christ NOW in heaven Read Ephesians 2:6: “And hath raised us up together and made us sit together IN heavenly places IN Christ Jesus. Amen!
See study on BODY OF CHRIST is Translated into the Kingdom of Jesus Christ NOW in heaven
1 Corinthians 2:12
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
Why would Jesus, the Son of God who is the IMAGE of the INVISIBLE GOD say that he didn’t know the day the end – Mark 13:32?
This can’t harmonize with the overwhelming proof that whatever the Father knows, the Son knows – Matthew 11:27. That Jesus is IN the Father and the Father IN him – John 14:10. And the GODHEAD being final proof that Jesus Christ IS God in visible BODILY FORM as a PERSON- Colossians 1:15, 2:9. See extensive studies on Godhead vs Trinity in links:
Trinity vs Godhead
Therefore, we have here before us another Paradox (2 ideas when put together seem to contradict each other, but upon further analysis prove the deeper truth of each).
The key to understanding this paradox is first found in Acts 1:7 in what Jesus told his disciples before he ascended into heaven. Here we see Jesus told his apostles that it was not for them to know but only the Father. Jesus did not include himself and the angels here, but just tells the apostles that it is NOT for them to know. If we harmonize scripture in context, we see Jesus now going to heaven where he will be seated as the Head of the Church knowing the new Dispensation of the Church is coming. Jesus does know what the Father knows and harmonizes with Matthew 11:27, John 14:10 and the Godhead verses of Colossians 1:15, 2:9.
The question remains as why Jesus would say he didn’t know in Mark 13:32?
When Jesus said he didn’t know, he was not telling us he was ignorant to the plans of The Father, but rather submitted to the will and authority of The Father to not disclose this day and hour. 1 notes below.
When we understand “why” we know and understand that we the true church, the body of Christ are to not be unaware of the season, day, hour of our redemption.
In Mark 13:32 It was not the time to speak of what Jesus and The Father know from eternity past and future. This is because the divine economy of the mystery of the church had not yet been revealed. The disciples were not aware of the Mystery of the Church until it was revealed to them by Paul. This new creation of the AGE OF GRACE is where we are today and our relationship in Christ is completely and diametrically opposite to what is established for the Jews.
The Church is the Bride. Jesus Christ is the Bridegroom. In Jewish Nuptials – Nissuin, The Father tells the Son when to get the Bride. Jesus willingly submitted to the Father’s Authority declared as did Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:2 “For I “determined” not to “know” “any” “thing” “among” “you”…” We see Paul’s regenerated spirit by the Spirit of Jesus Christ command Paul’s soul (will – determination, mind, volition) not to know the many things he did of course know – for the purpose of what he was commanded. And in obedience to Christ Jesus, Paul submitted his will to the Lord. Amen! 1 See notes below.
We see here clearly that JESUS existing as the IMAGE OF GOD did not have the authority granted by the Father to reveal any information about giving the exact dates to the Jews. And yet we the Body of Christ share and partakers of His divine nature. We are with Christ Jesus Spiritually and we possess the spirit of truth and have perfect knowledge and understanding in all things spiritual.
Here are a few key scriptures proving the obedience of the Son to the Father:
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
Whenever God says that he does not know, He professes ignorance indeed, but is not under the defect of ignorance. It is not because of the infirmity of ignorance that He does not know, but because it is not yet the time to speak, or the divine Plan to act . . . This knowledge is not, therefore, a change from ignorance, but the coming of the fulness of time. He waits still to know, but we cannot suppose that He does not know: therefore His not knowing what He knows, and His knowing what He does not know, is nothing else then a divine economy in word and deed.
Of Mark 13:32 where it is recorded that Christ declared that He did not know the day nor the hour of His return, it may be observed that the passage is not unlike 1 Corinthians 2:2 where the Apostle wrote, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” The thought is not to make known, or not to cause another to know. The truth mentioned was not then, as to its time, committed either to the Son or to the angels to publish.
For detailed background on understanding the GODHEAD please study.
Trinity vs Godhead
The following scriptures give us our answer:
Acts 1:7 It is not for you (The Apostles still under the Dispensation of the Kingdom to give to the JEWS) to know the time or seasons which the Father hath put in his power.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel
Jesus came in the first advent to establish himself as the Savior – Messiah to Israel as promised by the Prophets of the Old Testament. His first advent was a partial fulfillment of the many prophecies of the Messiah and the KINGDOM established on earth. The KINGDOM of GOD (The Spiritual Kingdom) and the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (The physical Kingdom on earth) Genesis 3:12-15, Isaiah 7:14, 9:7, Micah 5:2 among several others.
Key here are Jesus came to PREACH THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM Matthew 4:23, only given to the JEWS Matthew 15:24 In fulfilling the prophecy of coming and when the prophecy of being rejected – was fulfilled and verbalized as a testimony in Matthew 23:37,38 At this point Jesus had pronounced his judgment on Israel for rejecting him thus fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 53:3, John 1:10.
‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’ . . . He [Jesus] was speaking about the temple of his body.” Compare to the JEWISH TEMPLE composed of the Holy of Holies (The Spirit), The inner court (The Soul) and the Body (The outer court).
Luke 17:21 THE KINGDOM OF GOD (Spiritual kingdom) IS WITHIN YOU. Yes, Jesus Told the Pharisees that the Kingdom of God is with them. See study on how we are all born in the image of God – 3 parts: Spirit, Soul, Body. However the spirits of the Pharisees were not regenerated but eternally dead. Their judgment for disbelief and rejecting Jesus Matthew 8:12 “But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
See my letter to Dr. Woods regarding the Kingdom of God is within you when by use of a perverted Bible translation, Dr. Woods tries to teach us that Jesus is telling the Pharisees that the Kingdom of God is in their midst.
Here we have scripture showing us that Jesus is the physical image / body / person of the GODHEAD. God, the father is spirit and is invisible. God, the Father exists in an omnipresent condition. The Father abides in Jesus and Jesus is obedient to the Father. Jesus does as the Father wills and directs.

Brother Daryl Gass Parts 1 and 2 Debunking the Trinity
In the same manner in which a spiritual man is governed by his spirit through communion with God’s Spirit directing his intuition and conscience directs the soul of man which is the faculty of his personality – mind, will, desire, and emotions and these direct the physical body – God is comprised of 3 distinct parts: SPIRIT – SOUL – BODY . Jesus Christ is the visible IMAGE – BODY. The Father functions as the SOUL existing as the SPIRIT.
