All Hail the King James! Hundreds of Celebrations Mark the King James Bibles’ 400th Year


From princes to professors, parchments to smart phones, and from readings to rejoicings, the world wide phenomenon that is the King James Version of the Bible is being hailed as a cornerstone of society.


Washington D.C.,April 29, 2011 – The King James Bible is coming!  The ‘National’ celebration of the ‘Majestic Legacy’ of the King James Bible will be held May 2-3rd in the nation’s capitol.  In fact, an expo tent housing ancient bibles including a first edition 1611 Authorized ‘King James’ will be on display in front of the Capitol building upon the National Mall.

A series of lectures by a variety of authors and experts will be free and open to the public at the Jack Morton Auditorium on the campus of George Washington University on Monday from 11am to 3pm.

A fine arts drama and music presentation celebrating this anniversary will be performed at 7pm Monday, at GWU as well.  Tickets are available online or at the expo tent.

On Tuesday, May 3rd, at 5pm a rally will be held near the expo tent, that will include the reading of a bipartisan congressional resolution, House Concurrent Resolution 38, recognizing the anniversary and influence of the KJV.  Expo event details can be found at www.kingjames400.com.

Multiple events have already been staged in the U.S. and England.  Many more celebrations are being planned all year long and around the English speaking world.  One of the more modern manifestations of the noteworthiness of the KJV is how quickly it gets adapted, and available for new technology.  In honor of the great book, the ‘you version’ application for smart phones will have a flash mob read the Bible in just seconds from all around the world.

Recent attention has garnered the pens of many a journalist, capturing even the attention of notable atheists Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, among others.  Countless books, videos and news stories are also remembering this amazing books story and prominence.  Even Prince Charles has added his reading of John chapter 14 to a global Youtube reading.

“To ignore it, is to ignore the very sun.  It has enlightened our souls about Jesus Christ, and enriched our lives by paving a way of thinking.”, says Doug Levesque of the Bible Nation Society, sponsor of the national event. “In its pages are the answers to our current dilemmas including, the economy, the middle east, and even political gridlock.”

If Americas four hundred years have been artfully influenced by the flowing cadence of the King James Bible, then what help might its confident prose offer us now?

The Koran, Congress, and the King James Bible


Three iconic symbols compete for national influence on the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 25, 2011, — While free speech is being debated near Detroit over whether Reverend Terry Jones, the Koran burner, has the right to protest outside America’s largest mosque, Congress readies to debate debt ceilings and budget cuts.  Both debates are important to the country’s future.  They both have an existential tone to the rhetoric.  Passionate voices attempt to convince each other of the righteousness of their respective causes.  There is yet another cause.  Interconnected, perhaps more than we realize, is the steady cadence of another familiar voice offering a tried and true channel of safe passage through the country’s woes. It is from a guidebook of nations, one that has already seen the United States of America through every single crises of its existence.   In every war, every civil disturbance, every fiscal emergency, the King James Bible has been “the rock upon which our republic rests.”

Since before Lexington Green through the current enduring of extreme spring weather events, the King James Bible has been and continues to be the reassuring prose of our national psyche.  Of all philosophies, it has been the scaffolding upon which all other ideas must build upon, and has been the most fortuitous in constantly “delivering us from evil.”  While the Koran demands submission, and Congress pleads for patience and expediency, it is the voice of the King James Bible upon its quadricentennial that reminds us of liberty.

A National Expo will be held celebrating the 400th birthday of the KJV just as Congress steps back into business.  On May 2-3rd on the national mall just outside of the Capitol building, the Expo tent will display a 1st edition 1611 King James Bible along with other Bibles representing the history of its publication.  A working replica of a Gutenberg press will be printing copies of Exodus 20 (the ten commandments) from plates of the old 1611.  The printing and distribution of this chiefest book in all the English speaking world will enter it’s 400th year with a number of celebratory events around Washington D.C.

On Monday, May 2nd, at George Washington University, a series of five lectures will be held from 11am to 4pm.  This is free to the public.  Then at 7pm a fine arts drama and musical presentation will be performed highlighting the making of and American influence of the KJV.  On Tuesday, May 3rd, a rally will be held at 5pm communicating the incredible past impact and commending a future influence of the KJV upon our nation.  A Congressional resolution, H.R. Conc. 38 will be read and multiple presentations made.  More information concerning the event and resolution can be found at www.KingJames400.com.

The Society and culture that the King James Bible has fostered is much different than the one the Koran has fostered.  Congress debates endlessly while the executive branch is accused of offering confusion as a course of action.  Maybe America needs to pause and remember from ‘whence’ she came. Perhaps this anniversary is a Godsend, and the existential debates of personal freedom and national prosperity are right before us.

Congressional Resolution on the King James Bible


Congress will vote on House Concurrent Resolution 38 recognizing the 400th Anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible.

Contact: Jason Georges, Bible Nation Society Executive Director, 989-720-2267, www.KingJames400.com

Washington, D.C., April 19, 2011 — The ‘Old King James’ is turning 400 years old in May of this year.  This popular translation of the Bible has endured for centuries now and is still gaining strength. A national expo will be held in the Nation’s Capitol on May 2-3, 2011 to honor the influential book that some believe to be the Word of God to the English speaking world. A concurrent resolution has been entered into the House of Representatives by the bipartisan team of Republican Representative Aderholt, from Alabama, and  Democrat Representative Rahall, from West Virginia.

“The King James Bible deserves to be recognized for its contribution to American society,” says Doug Levesque, of the Bible Nation Society, a sponsor of the event.

“It really has been the vehicle that formulated our language and programmed our thinking for centuries.  There is no equivalent piece of English literature.”

This particular translation of Scripture is the best selling, most purchased, and most distributed book of all time.  All but one President of the United States, Franklin Pierce, is believed to have placed his hand on this version of the Bible while taking the oath of office. Its well known prose has instilled itself into the every day vernacular even in the 21st century.

An excerpt of the resolution reads:

“Whereas many national leaders, have paid tribute to the surpassing influence of the Bible in the United States development, among them the words of Democratic President Andrew Jackson, calling it ‘the rock upon which our republic rests’;

Whereas Republican President Ronald Reagan also said of the King James Bible, ‘Indeed, it is an incontrovertible fact that all the complex and horrendous questions confronting us at home and worldwide have their answer in that single book’; “

The entire resolution and information about the King James Bible Expo can be found at KingJames400.com. The Resolution will be read on May 3 from the Capitol Building at a rally at 5 p.m., along with an historical ceremony.  This event is free and open to the public.

British Lord Monckton Warns of UN Power Play for US Sovereignty


You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

The following video has gone viral on the internet, with millions of viewers outraged.  With stealth and audacity, the UN climate treaty advocates are attempting to drain every last vestige of life from the American Constitution and every last penny from her citizens.  Beware the Copenhagen Treaty!  “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:  but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.” -Proverbs 29:2.

Note:  Apparently, Monckton’s recent appearance on the Glenn Beck program has rallied true American voices.  “Copenhagen” may now have to wait until 2010.  Let us pray, and claim the promises of Scripture,“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying], Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:  the Lord shall have them in derision.” -Psalm 2:2-4.

Spiritual Wickedness In High Places

Spiritual Wickedness In High Places


By Chuck Baldwin
chuckbaldwinlive.com

chuck2Almost immediately after Adam’s fall, Lucifer and his minions collaborated
with evil men to usurp God’s authority and sovereignty. And nowhere is God
more sovereign than in the heart and conscience of man. In the spirit world,
the First Commandment (“Thou shalt have no other gods before me”) is the
battleground that is most fought over. The war for man’s heart and soul is
never-ending.

Nimrod was the first would-be tyrant to try and bring the world into a
global “New World Order.” His handiwork produced the Tower of Babel, which
brought about a cataclysmic judgment from Jehovah. However, while Nimrod was
the first globalist to try and unify the nations against God, he was
certainly not the last. The Pharaohs, Darius, Artaxerxes, Cyrus, Alexander,
Nebuchadnezzar, the Caesars, and hundreds like them have all brought their
tyrannical rule over the hearts of men. And their ideas and passions are as
alive and active in the world today as ever.

With every would-be world tyrant, there is one constant: the unholy marriage
between a supranational government and Big Religion. If Jehovah God made
anything clear in the Mosaic model of government, it was the fact
that–until Christ Himself comes to occupy both offices–the offices of
Priest and King were to be eternally separate. At least one Old Testament
Jewish king learned that lesson the hard way.

Yet, Big Government and Big Religion have always come together for the
purpose of enslaving the masses. The devilish duo of Big Government and Big
Religion killed the Old Testament prophets. They hung Jesus on the cross and
persecuted the early Church. They murdered masses during the Dark Ages; they
managed the Holocaust; and their obnoxious offspring are still at work
today. This criminal cabal has been the bane of genuine faith and personal
liberty since the beginning of time.

When Colonial America fired that shot heard around the world and fought
their way to independence, they broke free, not only from the political
domination of the Crown, but also from the religious domination of a State
Church. No longer would citizens be required to join a particular church in
order to hold public office. No longer would citizens be required to
financially support churches and institutions they deemed to be offensive to
their spiritual convictions. No longer could a religious institution use the
power and force of civil government to subjugate men to its tenets and, yes,
tentacles. Indeed, the apostate kingdom created by Constantine’s spiritual
whoredom ended at the eastern shore of America!

And dare I say that I am proud of my Anabaptist forebears for helping to
embed the principle of religious liberty into American law and
jurisprudence? Indeed, I am! What many Americans do not know (and what many
militant secularists refuse to acknowledge) is that it was the influence of
the Colonial Baptists–most notably, the Baptist minister John Leland–that
was most responsible for the First Amendment being added to the US
Constitution.

Therefore, it is more than disturbing when I see evangelical Christians
being seduced by the ancient Big Government/Big Religion whorish union
today. How can any true Gospel preacher accept federal Faith-Based
Initiative monies, except that he has either lost all understanding of what
freedom truly means, or is willing to sacrifice the sacred principles of
liberty upon the altar of his own selfish interests? How can any true Gospel
preacher not realize that Big Religion has always conspired with tyrannical
governmental forces against the true Gospel message? Why are they so blind
to these devilish conspiracies? At the highest levels of virtually every
major religion, the conspiracy to hijack truth and enslave the masses is
constantly at work.

This is what the Apostle Paul warned about in Ephesians 6:12. “For we
wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.”

Of course, the “rulers of the darkness of this world” are demonic. But it is
also an absolute certainty that these demonic forces accomplish their
devilish deeds through evil men who are given to “spiritual wickedness in
high places.”

Was not the spiritual netherworld complicit in helping to construct Nimrod’s
Tower of Babel? Was not spiritual wickedness at work when Pharaoh murdered
the little children of the Hebrews? Were not dark principalities at work
when Nebuchadnezzar ordered everyone to bow to the image of the Babylonian
leader? When the Lord Jesus called Jewish King Herod a “fox,” was not He
acknowledging Herod’s complicity with evil? Were not spiritual powers aiding
and abetting the Jewish Sanhedrin when they moved the crowd to crucify the
Son of God? When the early Church was being persecuted, was not spiritual
wickedness at work? When nonconforming Christians were thrown to the lions
and sawn asunder, were not their tormentors influenced by these same rulers
of darkness? Of course they were!

Then, why is it so difficult for modern Christians–especially our pastors
and preachers–to understand that this unholy union of Big Government and
Big Religion is as evil and sinful today as it ever was? Why are they
unwilling to recognize that the same devilish system that plagued the Church
throughout the ages–suspended only temporarily by the successful revolution
for American independence–is rearing its ugly head again? Why are they
unwilling to believe that many of America’s leaders (from both parties)
routinely give themselves to luciferian rituals, such as those annual dances
around the fire at the Bohemian Grove? Why is it so hard to believe that we
have leaders (from both parties) who have given themselves to dark, secret
societies, such as Skull and Bones? Why are they not suspicious when certain
religious schools and institutions repeatedly produce many of the leaders
(from both parties) who seem to universally take America down the same path
of globalism?

As most Christians should know, The Beast of Revelation is as much a SYSTEM
as it is a person. As the Apostle John warned, the “spirit of antichrist . .
. even now already is it in the world.” (I John 4:3) He also warned, “Even
now are there many antichrists.” (I John 2:18)

Any Big Government/Big Religion system that seeks to bring nations into
global unity, enshrine a politically correct theology of universalism,
establish Church/State uniformity, and marginalize independent,
nonconformist ideology is nothing more than the emergence of another Tower
of Babel or Beast-like system! And, dear Christian friend, has it occurred
to you that our central government in Washington, D.C., is currently engaged
in all of the above?

Both political parties–including most of our national leaders and news
media–actively promote globalism; universalism is, without a doubt, the
unofficial–but clearly understood–national religion; and anyone who holds
nonconformist views (i.e., pro-life, Jesus-only theology, anti-UN,
anti-illegal immigration, questioning official government explanations of
national tragedies, etc.) is being viciously ridiculed, impugned, and
marginalized by virtually everyone in the national press corps and central
government. Yes, I am saying it, THE BEAST IS EMERGING IN WASHINGTON, D.C.!

The powers that be in both Big Government and Big Religion want to control
both our hearts and our minds. They cannot tolerate dissent. Mind you: they
do not care if one is Republican or Democrat, because at the national level,
both major parties are marching in the same beastly direction. They do not
care if one is conservative or liberal, because the leaders of both camps
are, likewise, marching in lockstep to the tune being played by The Beast.
They do not care if one is Jewish, Catholic, or Protestant, because at the
highest levels, these religions are committing whoredom with The Beast.

If a pastor or preacher is going to be true to his calling today, he must be
willing to adopt the philosophy of the late, great Charles Haddon Spurgeon,
who said, “The more prominent you are in Christ’s service, the more certain
are you to be the butt of calumny [slander]. I have long ago said farewell
to my character. I lost it in the earlier days of my ministry by being a
little more zealous than suited a slumbering age. And I have never been able
to regain it except in the sight of Him who judges all the earth, and in the
hearts of those who love me for my work’s sake.”

Any desire for promotion, pleasure, riches, or fame will quickly make one a
servant of The Beast. And, I’m afraid, that is exactly what many of today’s
pastors and preachers have become.

The fight for independence was as much for the freedom of the heart and mind
as it was for the freedom of a State or nation. In fact, one cannot enslave
the latter until he first enslaves the former. And this is what is currently
at stake: the freedom of the heart and soul to be governed by God and no
other! And this battle will never be won–at least not nationally–as long
as Christians and pastors are unwilling to recognize the enemy for what it
is: “spiritual wickedness in high places.”

P.S. We will start printing THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS next week. This printing
will absolutely be the last printing at the current price. We have not
raised the cost for FREEDOM DOCUMENTS since we started printing them many
years ago. Hence, if you want to get a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS for
yourself or a friend before the price goes up, order now! Plus, if you order
now, you will be among the first to receive a copy of this special Christmas
printing. As you know, these printings sell out fast, so order now!

Pastors Take the Lead to Preserve Bible Freedoms Against Hate Crimes Legislation

Pastors Take the Lead to Preserve Bible Freedoms Against Hate Crimes Legislation


By:  Dr. Douglas F. Levesque, Founder of the Levesque Institute

Three Michigan pastors launched a Federal lawsuit challenging recent ‘hate crime’ legislation as unconstitutional.   If any references denouncing homosexuality or condemning it as ‘deadly’ behavior  fall under this so-called crime definition, then reading certain portions of the Bible would make criminals out of preachers and Sunday school teachers.  These courageous pastors have decided to take the lead in fighting this foolishness in the courts.  One well known pastor is Bridgeport preacher, Renee Oullette.  We applaud and support men and women, churches and institutions that are striving to keep this nation a Bible nation!  Below are related artlicles.

The Legitimacy of the Continental Congress 2009

The Legitimacy of the Continental Congress 2009


By: Dr. Douglas F. Levesque, Founder of The Levesque Institute

The Continental Congress 2009 has convened in Chicagoland, Illinois. It is meeting to articulate grievances regarding the U.S. government’s abuse of power and disregard for Constitutional law. It will then determine what to do if the government decides to ignore the grievances. A public petition will be circulated to raise awareness and garner support. It is an historic occasion – no doubt. It’s effectiveness is yet to be seen. It’s legitimacy is the subject of this treatise.

Three delegates from each state have been elected to represent Americans in these delegations. The diversity is great. White, black, hispanic, and immigrant-citizens are here. Blue collar, white collar, college degrees, and self educated experts are here. Men, women, young, and old are here. Most are patriots, many are veterans, some are skeptics, and not a few seem anti-establishment, but all are come together as Americans. Some are God fearing, some are atheistic, but all are tolerant of the many prayers, hymns, chapels, and religious historical stories alluded to here. The level of Constitutional knowledge and legal understanding is as rich as any meeting in America. The hope for peaceful progress is seen in the smiling eyes and heard in the lively discussions at every break time or meal table. The determination to see this Continental Congress is high in most delegations. On the surface it is very real, and very serious. At the core it is noble, and for the Constitutional purist. But is it legitimate?

What makes anything legitimate? Does legitimate mean legal? This congress is legal. Does legitimate mean mature or meaningful? This congress is both of those things. Does legitimate mean popular or marketable? This congress has the potential to be explosive at the grass roots level and in the pop media. Does legitimate mean “as powerful” or more potent than the current government? That remains to be seen. Our forefathers certainly did not seem legitimate under any of these definitions, but today nobody questions their legitimacy. It is their universal acceptance and even their universal esteem that actually maximizes this Continental Congress 2009. Constitutionally, nothing could be more legitimate.

Biblically speaking, only an adherence to the sound national advice and wisdom within the sacred pages of Scripture will move the hand of heaven towards a lasting and effective legitimacy. Let us pray for both our current authorities and our Continental Congress 2009 delegates to reach for the examples set by our first representatives.

“But the former governors that had been before me were chargeable unto the people, and had taken of them bread and wine, beside forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants bear rule over the people: but so did not I, because of the fear of God.” -Nehemiah 5:15

Historic Continental Congress 2009 Convenes

Historic Continental Congress 2009 Convenes


Original article posted at the We The People Foundation website.

Wednesday, November 11, 2009 may one day be known as the day the American People convened, for the first time in over two centuries, an Assembly of representatives of the People in order to fully exercise of the “Capstone Right” — i.e., the Petition clause of the First Amendment.

At approximately 3:00 pm Wednesday, WTP Chairman Bob Schulz convened the Assembly to begin the selection of Congress officers from the ranks of elected Delegates who will preside over the 11-day long Assembly.  Constitutional scholar and former Presidential candidate Michael Badnarik was selected as the presiding officer of the Congress while Delegate .

Following the ceremonial Liberty Banquet dinner at the St. Charles, Illinois Pheasant Run venue, the Delegates gathered in the main deliberation hall for the Opening Ceremony which wasbroadcast live.  The song-centered ceremony featured presentation of the fifty state flags by the Delegates, as well as several patriotic group songs and inspirational prayers.

For over a decade, WTP Foundation has championed an intensive, well-researched and coherent effort to hold the Government accountable for its escalating violations of fundamental Rights and the Constitution through use of the Right of the People to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  Those ongoing abuses include violations of the Constitution’s tax, money, war, general welfare, privacy and other clauses that are at the heart of the conditions that now plague our nation.  (See our Petitions for Redress)

Although the public has known little about the history or nature of the Right to Petition, scholarly and historical research has established without argument, that the Right, first articulated as the cornerstone of Western Law in Magna Carta (1215), provides the People an individual Right to hold Government peacefully accountable for its abuses.

Far beyond the right to merely send “complaints” to the government (which are virtually ignored by all officials), the Right of Petition embodies the profound Right to enforce the Right to Petition by withdrawing support from the Government until Redress is secured.

Summaries of this important research can be reviewed as part of the legal pleadings of the 2004 landmark WTP lawsuit, We The People vs. United States, which sought to have the Judiciary declare – for the first time in history – the legal and constitutional meaning of the last ten words of the First Amendment. In 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear this controversial case involving the essence of Popular Sovereignty.

Continental Congress 2009 will take the process of holding Government accountable and restoring the Constitution to the next level by first creating a formal record of the vast violations of the Constitution and Individual Rights now suffered by the People.  Next, the Congress will debate and decide upon a series of practical but strong “Civic Actions” the People may take in order to restore their Liberty.

The agenda for the CC2009 Assembly also provides for the development and adoption of formal “Remedial Instructions” to be served upon federal and state officials, in essence ordering them to cease and desist their official abuses and giving them formal Notice as to the “Civic Actions” of (peaceful) resistance the People may take, en masse, if those officials, yet again, choose to ignore the People’s Petitions for Redress.
