    Christ Himself warns us of the "scribes," many times. Do we listen? Are we aware of how they work?


    Mark 12:38 And He said unto them in His doctrine, "Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces. And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:

    Mark 14:1 After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take Him by craft, and put Him to death.

    Mark 15:29-31 And they that passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads, and saying, "Ah, Thou That destroyest the Temple, and buildest it in three days. Save Thyself, and come down from the cross." Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, "He saved others; Himself He cannot save.


    Scribe #1122 A writer, (professionally) scribe or secretary - scribe, town clerk.


    From the few examples quoted above we see the purpose of these scribes, which is to...PUT HIM TO DEATH. They are most often affiliated with the "chief priests," who at that time had been appointed by Rome. These are Satan's workers and are not of our brother Judah. They are those Christ told...


    John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    This thread concerns "the scribes." They are those that want to kill Him by "craft," which is by deceit. And...they did. They continue to. How? They are professional writers and through that media they kill Him over and over. He is the Word:


    John 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.

    As they helped kill our Saviour they continue to kill Him by changing His Word. Christ Himself warns us of this! "Beware of the scribes." These professional writers didn't go away at His crucifixion....they are alive and well today for not only did they wish to kill Him....they strive to spiritually kill all believers and....they are. The many translations of the Bible are proof of their continued work where His truth is diluted and changed. It isn't just in the Bible for it includes writers in today's papers, books, etc. who destroy His Word and spread Satan's poison and deception. Add to that the Strong's Concordance.

    In my Strong's Concordance the definition of air, as used in...



    1 Thessalonians 4:17 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.

    is......#109 aer ah-ayr' from aemi (to breathe unconsciously, i.e. respire; by analogy, to blow); "air" (as naturally circumambient):--air. Compare 5594)

    In other words....it IS NOT in the atmosphere but is us, our living, breathing breath of life. When you search for the meaning of breathe and respire we find it means....SPIRIT, which is our life. This is our spirit being taught. So, when we meet the Lord in the air, it means...in our spirit bodies not in the sky.

    Now I have been told that there is an addition to this definition....the new and improved versions have added....


    1) the air, particularly the lower and denser air as distinguished from the higher and rarer air

    2) the atmospheric region[/quote](http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=G109&t=KJV)


    Why was it added? Who added it? This addition changes the meaning but how? If one believes in rapture then....it HAS TO BE the atmosphere for....aren't all good believers to be flown away? It cannot just mean in spirit bodies...as the original stated it meant. Which is right? You must decide.


    Now, knowing why Christ warned us to "beware of the scribes" and we now see how they continue to work to not only kill Him over and over but to also spiritually kill those that love Him, will we so readily accept newly translated...new and improved versions...newer and easier to understand and....additions to the Strong's Concordance? I hope not. Know your enemy and know they, the scribes, are in high places and look so very holy!



    Take heed lest any man deceive you....Mark 13:5

    Not trying to dump on you wwind but you take something so simple and travel to lala land with it.

    Scribes and pharisees , have nothing to do with bible versions or raptures.

    The scribes were absolutely accurate in reproducing scripture , dotted every "i" and crossed every "t" with utmost care

    The Pharisees were perfect examples of keeping the legalistic laws , they looked good , smelled good , dressed the part , knew the scriptures , even tied scriptures to their foreheads..

    The were the ultimate religious people of the times. The experts in the law.

    But they were religious pretenders ... the exterior was good , the legalism was good , but the heart was wrong , and that is what Jesus lectured them on

    The rabble-rouser fishermen and tax collectors were non-pretenders and Jesus chose them as apostles.

    So mr whirlwind , please stop pretending you are a judge of what translations we should use and what endtime interpretations is correct. You do not have the authority , nor are you qualified .

    Thank you.

    Your comment of, "they were religious pretenders, etc." fits many religious folk and yet...Jesus said, "beware of the scribes." There was a reason for that.

    As there were religious pretenders in those day....they are here among us today. To not see that is...not to see.
