Thanks to Mike for establishing his opinion on the Bible changes. The video presents multiple straw man points to make his case, but at least there is no more guessing on where this self proclaimed teacher stands. I still respect Mike for continuing to preach the gospel in much of his work, but cannot disagree more with this video.
When I come across Christians that deny the bible changes and say that the bible could never be changed, it makes me wonder what kind of relationship people have with Jesus in the first place. Do they even have a relationship with him? Are they following our Shepherd or are they simply worshiping a book that keeps supernaturally changing?
Today we will be looking at the discussion points that Mike from On Point Preparedness has on the Mandela Effect. It may not help him specifically, but for our readers it may clear up points he has made without seeing the whole picture and understanding what is fully going on. Let's get on with the discussion at hand.
Mike: Hey everybody. This is Mike with On Point Preparedness.
TSBC: Hello Mike.
Mike: This is a topic that I've been wanting to talk about for awhile now but haven't been so moved to do so until recently. That is the Mandela Effect. Now God really moves on me and encourages me to do a work whenever I see types of repetitious patterns in terms of people approaching me and talking to me about the same subject or certain events that are repetitious in nature.
That's actually what has happened over the last couple of weeks. Allot of people, a whole host of people across different walks of life and completely unrelated circumstances, have all been wanting to talk to me about The Mandela Effect and so this time I felt moved to do a video on it.
Now if you have no idea what the Mandela Effect is you can just google it for yourself, but generally it suggests that there are parallel dimensions or alternate realities that in these end times they are sort of merging together and so there is a collective consciousness of people that remember something in the past as happening or being one way but now when they are looking back through historical records it has changed.
TSBC: No Mike. We don't subscribe to the alternate dimensions theory going around. I don't even think we could find anything in the scriptures to base that argument off of. What we do see is that our past history is now a lie and things have been supernaturally changing as we speak. We think it's the lying signs and wonders that satan causes in 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2 that happens before the antichrist is revealed. To go even further scriptures clearly told us that everyone is appointed to die once and then comes Judgement. That doesn't work with multiple versions of the same person. At least with scriptures changing along with this, we look at Amos 8:11 where it says, "The days cometh sayeth the Lord, that I will send a famine in the land. Not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord." As bad as scriptures has become as a whole and the lack of people being alarmed by this, it can only be a famine for hearing the words of the Lord.
Mike: One of the most prevalent or popular case studies of the Mandela Effect was in relation to the Barenstein Bears.
TSBC: Why are you pronouncing Barenstein wrong Mike if it's really supposed to be spelled Barenstain?
Mike: It's actually sort of comical as well. We all remember it being spelled stein but when we're looking back at books and articles it's now being called Barenstain Bears stain and so people are saying woah this is really trippy. There is like some sort of rip in the space time continuum and the spelling has changed.
Now I love a good conspiracy and it's fun to just think about that, but then people were starting to say that it's impacting scriptures. It's actually impacting the bible. I had a run in with this in a video that I did in March of 2018. So in this video it's titled All Creation Awaits THIS Moment in the Near Future and I had referenced Isaiah 11 and it says "The wolf shall lie down or dwell with the lamb." And the comments just utterly blew up with a ton of people saying I was deceived because scriptures should say the Lion shall lay down with the Lamb, and I need to start investigating the mandela effect because the words of the bible is changing.
TSBC: Kind of strange how scriptures say Wolf and yet when you go to look for images to go with it you will find picture after picture of a Lion laying down with a Lamb. How many pictures in comparison show a wolf with a lamb Mike? How many songs are there about a wolf dwelling with the lamb?
Mike: Now this was not the intent of that video at all and honestly I didn't want to give any intention to this mandela effect or entertain it at all. I just sort of brushed it aside. However what ensued afterwards was very worrisome and it continues up until today which is why I need to speak on it. Now I'm going to go ahead and read to you an email I received way back in March of 2018 in reference to the video I was just talking about and this lady is talking about the mandela effect and it's effect on changing scripture and this really exemplifies my concern that I have with people that are focusing on the mandela effect as it relates to the changing of God's Word.
TSBC: What you say is God's Word and who we KNOW to be God's Word is not the same. The bible was always called the INSPIRED word of God, but not specifically God's Word or The Word of God. Revelation(s) 19:13 specifically shows us WHO The Word of God is when it's describing Jesus. Going further you only have to look at the beginning of John to see that The Word of God can't be the bible. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. Skipping a few verses it then states that the word was made flesh and dwelt among us. Considering that after he died on the cross he would then be raised 3 days later, spend some time with his disciples, and then be seated on the right hand side of God until he returns for us after tribulations, there is no possible way that God's Word could be the bible at all.
Mike: It is an incredibly dangerous thing. Now this lady was super nice. She was a subscriber in the past. Maybe a subscriber now. She may be watching this video. Her heart is going to sink into her stomach. Not going to call her by name. This is not to shame her. It's not to call her out but what was said was incredibly in error and with how many people that I see talking to me now about the Mandela Effect, I need to be bold and authoritative in saying that is a dangerous thing to say that God's Word is now fallible because of the Mandela Effect.
TSBC: Again. Even scriptures point to Jesus Christ as being The Word of God. You are giving a title to the bible that doesn't belong to this object.
Mike: Alright so reading the email really quick here just in reference to the discovery of the Mandela Effect. She says… D
Discovering the change in my Bible at Home was my first foray into the Mandela Effect because I just could not believe my eyes. I immediately called my daughter to tell her about it, and she thought I was crazy…which drove ME crazy. I became obsessed with trying to prove the change to her while she began to go on YouTube channels and called those who see the changes insane…which after awhile…begins to make you FEEL insane.
Then one day, as I was doing my nightly cleaning with the television on some random channel in the background, I heard some woman say, "James, the Bible tells us that one day the lion shall lay down with the lamb". Boom! There it was! Needless to say, I freaked and ran to see what show it was and it was the show Goodtimes made back in the late 70s or early 80s. I immediately backed it up, recorded it, and put it on YouTube. Then I made my daughter listen on the phone so I could finally show her that yes, it DID say that and yes, the Bible had actually, supernaturally changed.
Mike: So this is in reference to Isaiah 11 that many people thinks that it says the Lion lay down with the lamb, and now when you read it the wolf lie down with the lamb. Just a quick note here this show wasn't reading from scriptures they were just uttering the phrase. I'm not going to get into this whole lion or wolf debate but I just want to make it clear they are not actually reading from a bible that says those words.
TSBC: Our point is that this is residue left over from where the verse actually said that. Again, how much material can you really find outside of bible study materials and the bible itself that now says wolf? It's just like the verse that says "Judge not lest ye be judged." but the KJV verse obviously doesn't say that anymore so where did the "lest ye be judged" part come from? Was it completely fabricated? Made up? I think not.
This is when I learned about residuals. Sometimes you can find residuals left from before the change and this was one of them.
Mike: This is almost essentially like what you see in the Matrix movie right? There's a glitch in the Matrix but there is some type of residual left.
TSBC: Interesting that you say that because there is also changes to this movie as well. Like the line that said, "What if I told you everything you thought you knew was a lie." no longer exists in this current reality. But then you would say the same thing about this that you said about Isaiah 11. It couldn't possibly be a supernatural change right? Neo also had a meeting with Agent Smith where he said, "Mr. Anderson. We've been expecting you." This line no longer exists as well. I've watched this movie many times and recently neither of these lines spoken are in this movie at all.
What if I told you that everything you thought you knew about the current bible was a lie? What if I told you it was the famine for hearing the words of the Lord in Amos 8:11? What if I told you it was the lying signs and wonders in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 before the antichrist is revealed? Please pay attention. We're already in the last days.
There's an old spiritual song that Elvis sang, Peace in the Valley, I think it is where he sings that the lion will lay down with the lamb. Not to mention all of the photos and statues that if you are open to it, you have to ask yourself why there are so many of those two together.
Mike: Ok that is just for openers. Now there are hundreds of changes in the bible. Now that is where we start to get into very dangerous words. In fact I've gone on a whole bunch of Mandela Effect social media groups on Facebook and what is so concerning is that this is all they want to focus on.
They love to find supposed contradictions in the bible and call out this is potentially changed and that is potentially changed and what all your thoughts on this one and that one and honestly it is completely destroying the foundation of God's Word…
TSBC: The INSPIRED word of God. Again you are giving a title to the bible that doesn't belong to it.
Mike: …to where it is no longer inspired, infallible, and inerrant. You see the danger here.
TSBC: Before continuing on, I want to mention this because it was shown in the letter in the video but you did not talk about this verse at all.
ONE bed either. Check out Luke 17:34. It USED to say a husband and wife.
TSBC: Why did you skip ahead and not specifically show what the verse said in the letter?
I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
TSBC: Anyone who has read from scriptures for many years should know without a doubt that this never said "two men in one bed". You just completely skipped over even discussing this verse.
Mike: There are just a couple of other changes she believes happened in the bible. She says…
There are many, many more changes than that, but I think you get the picture. What is astonishing to me is that the Bible warned us of supernatural happenings in the end times…right down to times and seasons being changed. But when supernatural things actually DO happen, they refuse to see it. And what better way for Satan to deceive God's people than to use their own minds and memories against them?
Alright. That is what is happening here. If you believe in the Mandela Effect, which essentially says that parallel universes or parallel dimensions are merging together, what control do you have over that? You have no control. You have absolutely no control. The only control that you have is trying to gather together with like minded people and guess whether or not certain things had changed and what the true meaning might be and so yes…Satan is deceiving God's people because you are having to rely on your own minds and memories rather than trust in God's Word.
TSBC: There are different guesses for why the bible as well as the physical world has been changed. You only latched onto the secular reason behind the Mandela Effect rather than the biblical one. It is Satan causing these changes specifically the lying signs and wonders mentioned in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2.
While I do agree that we come together and discuss this because we are the only ones remember, it's not only "guessing" about scriptures. We know that the bible did not say there would be 2 men in a bed. We know there are words in scriptures that shouldn't be there like tires, mufflers, maidens, corn, and unicorns among many other words that should never have been in the KJV bible in the first place. Scriptures states that you teach your children on what they should know and when they are older they shall not depart from them. When the scriptures started changing, we did not depart from what we were taught that came directly from the bible. How does this compare with what you are doing now with your video Mike?
TSBC: …and again. The bible clearly points to Jesus as being The Word of God. Stop giving His title to the bible where it clearly doesn't belong.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
TSBC: Going further…
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
TSBC: Do these verses describe the bible as being The Word of God or in your own words "God's Word"? Or does the title belong to Jesus where scriptures clearly tells us WHO The Word of God really is!
Another verse that is taken out of context to say that the bible is God's Word comes from the book of Hebrews.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Now you are thinking "Yes, this has to be the bible!" but continue reading on…
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
Wait. The bible is "him" now going by the next verse? Keep reading!
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
…and there you have it. This is WHO they are discussing as The Word of God. Jesus who is The Son of God. The chapter goes on to say…
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
One more set of verses before we continue on. You're very familiar with the beginning of John right? All Christians have read these verses many times.
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. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Clearly these verses are talking about Jesus Christ? Don't believe me? It goes on to say in verse 14…
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. –John 1:14
The title of The Word of God and God's Word can only point to Jesus Christ. With this being the case, do you think calling the bible "God's Word" when this title belongs to Jesus Christ is complete blasphemy?
Mike: It goes on…
There are those (like my daughter) who don't want to accept that God would allow His Word to be changed.
Actually, scripture says that God's word can't be changed. I'll read that to you…
But if you read Amos 8:12, you will find that in the latter days, people will seek after God's Word and not be able to find it.
I'm going to go back to Amos 8:12 in a second here. But here is…I mean I just hope you all see the deception here.
The Bible HAS changed and continues to change. I will not even let my husband, who is a fairly new believer, read it anymore because it can no longer be trusted.
That is heavy…and this is the end game of the Mandela Effect…to where you no longer trust the bible at all and you rely on your own intuition to navigate spiritual things.
TSBC: No. We're relying on the Holy Spirit to help guide us on the straight and narrow path…something that everyone should have done from the beginning instead of putting their complete faith and trust in the bible. That kinda looks like idol worship doesn't it? But continue on…
Mike: I…I…if you don't see the danger in that I don't know how to help you.
I know this is a hard pill to swallow, and you may be one of those who does think I'm crazy…
Mike: No. I do not think you are crazy, but I definitely do think you are deceived.
…but I had to write after watching your video this morning where you quoted Isaiah 11:6 with the "wolf and lamb". I have always respected you as a teacher and I still do, but I cannot let this go without at least trying to show you. I hope you will take in the spirit with which it is given.
Mike: …and so likewise if this person is still watching, this is not supposed to be a condemning video although I absolutely sure you will feel condemned, but I have to speak sense into you that this is not right and I will show you scripture. I'm not going to take all these examples…I'm not going to say…well what about the wolf and the lamb…and what about this…and what about that…because we're taking circumstantial evidence and our memories and trying to come up with a conclusion rather let us go to the truth. Let us go to the solid foundation of God's Word to determine if God's word can change.
TSBC: Still giving Jesus' Title to the bible? At least I hope you touch on Revelations (that doesn't have an 's' anymore) and the warning against changing scriptures. Continue on…
Mike: Now before we do that, let me just go and you know really point out some of the error that is in here. If you read Amos 8:12 she says that in the latter days people will seek after God's word and not find it.
TSBC: Just want to interject here. I remember "words from the Lord". It's still written on a paper where I wrote out the verse from memory. Just on wording alone it is NOT the same as "God's Word". It does make me wonder why "words" was changed to "word" and "from" was changed to "of".
Mike: That's not exactly what it says. Let's just take a look here in Amos 8:12 it says
They shall wander from sea to see, and from the north to the east; they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord, but they shall not find it.
Now if you just take that as it is, yeah I'm sure that you can think that it is Mandela Effect if you believe in Mandela Effect, but take a look at two verses here. One in John and one in Luke.
You search the Scriptures because you think in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me.
What's happening here? There are people like pharisees and like many other people who didn't truly know the Lord who were pouring over the scriptures. They were pouring over the word of the Lord trying to seek out eternal life. They had no idea that they bared witness about Jesus. They had no idea so yes they were seeking out the out the word of the Lord. They were pouring over scripture and they could not find it. They could not find what eternal life was. That it was in Christ. That is what Amos 8:12 is talking about.
TSBC: Amos in the old testament said there would be a famine, but many received the message of Jesus Christ when He was walking on this earth. Not only that but the amount of people that placed their faith, trust, and belief in Jesus Christ has only since increased over time. Pointing at the pharisees not believing in Jesus wouldn't be as much a famine considering how many there were. What also doesn't sit right with me about your explanation is that yes, they were pouring over scriptures, but they didn't travel about like Amos 8:12 tells us.
I see the bible as a vehicle that used to tell us what God spoke through His faithful followers. That vehicle has since been hijacked to deliver a different message.
And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
These are people who are not following God. Scriptures were testimonies of those following God. We follow our Shepherd and remember the true testimonies of His faithful followers. Not what is written in scriptures today. We hear his voice and will follow Him wherever He goes regardless of how much the bible continues to change. We are baring witness to the changes taking place in scriptures and the only memories left of how scriptures originally were before they were altered and changed supernaturally. We listen and are guided through the Holy Spirit so it is not just questioning verses on our own and making our own decisions on how the bible is supposed to be written. More times than not our memories are identical to one another which shows that this isn't just a case of miss-remembering with how many of us have stuck by original scriptures since they began changing.
Going on to verse 40 only shows how people use the bible as an idol instead of going to Jesus.
40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Instead of going to our Father in prayer over these supernatural changes…instead of using the Holy Spirit to see through the delusion taking place…you search the scriptures to unfortunately say it is "God's Word" that "can never be changed". Even then it's still ignoring the warning from Revelations without an 's' that shows that scriptures would indeed be changed and altered.
Mike: …further look at Luke 24:45.
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
TSBC: You can quote this verse and yet you cannot see that it has been changed. "which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms" has been supernaturally inserted into this verse. If you truly are following our Shepherd, you would see this right away.
Mike: I fear that with the Mandela Effect, if there is a time where there is a supposed contradiction in the bible, they'll say "well that's the Mandela Effect". But I know there are plenty of times I've looked at the supposed contradiction, but through prayer and patience God then revealed to me it's very simple and true nature and I found there was no contradiction at all. It was because he opened my mind to that scripture. Even though I poured over it, if I tried to to learn it through my own intellect I could not find the truth. It was only until I submitted and prayed to God that he opened my mind to understand the scripture and so that is what Amos 8:12 is referring to that people pour over and seek the word of the Lord but they shall not find it because they have not softened their hearts.
TSBC: I spent weeks agonizing over the fact that scriptures written in the bible were not speaking in the voice that I remembered. It felt out of place and I've been reading the KJV bible for many many years. I would know later on that I had started seeing changes in the world some years before my scriptures felt off to me, but then again I had been living in the world for some time with worldly concerns and family health problems that I was helping out with. I just knew that I would not be able to figure this out on my own at all and it wasn't until weeks of prayer that I was shown that the scriptures as well as the reality we are living in is being changed supernaturally. Not because it was anything I figured out on my own, but I asked our Father because He was the only one who could tell me. This was before seeing anything about the Mandela Effect online. I had no outside influence whatsoever when I started seeing these supernatural changes.
Mike: Now. Let me go at this from a biblical point of view that is the only place that we are going to make any sense of this. I know the comments on this video are going to be ridiculous. I'm not going to even look at them they are going to be that ridiculous.
TSBC: For someone who is concerned about people being deceived by the Mandela Effect and you're already going to ignore them? Why?
Mike: …and people are going to bring all sorts of circumstantial evidence and links and this situation and that situation or this example and that example and it's just all going to be a cluster. So I'm not going to do it and I don't think anyone else should try to entertain that and do it themselves. You have to go back to the word of God.
TSBC: I have. I've repeatedly pointed to Jesus as The Word of God, but you keep pointing to the scriptures instead.
Mike: So let's start in Romans 15.
We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
That is actually what I'm trying to do here. I'm trying to build you up on to this solid foundation of God's own word.
TSBC: Again you are pointing to the bible instead of to Jesus who was prophesied about many years before about before his birth even before it was written down for future generations to read about.
For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Now here is the key verse…verse 4…
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
TSBC: Is aforetime even a word? Spell check doesn't think so. Also the scripture version you're using says "endurance and encouragement" when this one says "patience and comfort". That's not exactly the same thing. You have to look at the wording….but you don't look at how the KJV is all messed up now. It's either "how they wrote back then" which is ridiculous, or somehow a "translation issue" which I don't understand either because it was a FACT that the KJV was ALWAYS the closest English translation of scriptures. Not anymore it seems.
Mike: So Paul is telling us…go back through the scriptures. It was written for our instruction. In 1 Corinthians 10:11 it also says…
Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
TSBC: We have said many times if the King had caught the scribes mangling sentences like that they would have been put to death. "ends of the world are come" Really? Except you are using a less mangled version where bible changes are less noticeable.
Mike: Look at at some of the other verses that talk about the power of scriptures.
TSBC: …wait…wait. Power of scriptures? The bible is neither the Father, the Son, nor is it the Holy Spirit. Scriptures were only the testimonies given by His faithful followers.
Scriptures cannot save you from your sins. Scriptures cannot heal the sick nor can it cast out demons…but WHO is it that Can? That's right! Jesus Christ who IS The Word of God.
Mike: Matthew 22:29
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Jesus used the scriptures because they testified about him. Acts 17:11
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
So it calls people noble in that they examine the scriptures daily to see if these things were so about Jesus Christ. Now here is probably the most powerful verse about the fact that scripture is in tact. Now this gets into some heavy meat. It talks about us being called Gods…I'm not going to get into that…
TSBC: It sent off alarm bells in my head, but I guess you aren't willing to talk about it right now.
Mike: …maybe in a different video, but I want to to pull one aspect of John 10:35 out…starting in John 10:34…
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
TSBC: We know scriptures never said that "Ye are gods". The ten commandments specifically told us to not have any other God before him nor that we should worship idols. People being called "gods" in scriptures completely goes against this. This verse is mangled obviously on the word "Ye" alone. Scriptures in the KJV used words like thee, thou, and thine. I'm not familiar enough with the KJV 1611 that was in old English to know if it had "ye" in it, but in later versions this word was not in it.
If scripture cannot be changed, then there would never have been a warning in Revelations against scriptures being changed to begin with. This is exactly what we keep warning about yet everyone either fails to understand or completely denies that the bible could ever be changed like what you are doing now.
Mike: That is what Jesus Christ said personally.
TSBC: No. I will keep testifying for as long as I have breath that Jesus never said "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?". This is not my Shepherd speaking out through scriptures but the voice of him or those that have been altering scriptures.
Mike: So yes…we are aware that the enemy is trying to distort God's word with multiple translations that are awful, but it is not that we can't get back to the truth.
TSBC: My Jesus Christ can speak all languages so there isn't a language barrier, but then again you are calling the bible "God's Word" again.
Mike: I personally use the English Standard Version along with the KJV and I think the spirit has been serving me quite well as far as guiding me through the scriptures.
TSBC: The question is what "spirit" is guiding you right now?
Mike: …again I can get back to the truth. Sure there are false translations out there, but I can always get guided back to the truth with the spirit vs Mandela Effect which you have nothing to base it off of except your own mind which is a very dangerous thing.
TSBC: This is the second time I've noticed you only use the word spirit. Why not the Holy Spirit? It is after all what Jesus left with us to help guide us through this life after He ascended into the clouds to be on the right hand side of our Father.
Mike: Now some people might say, well Mike now all the verses you have mentioned are all talking about writings of old, so what about the New Testament? Is the New Testament scripture? Well absolutely. I'll give a quick example here. Let's look at 2 Peter Chapter 3:15-16.
And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
TSBC: I am not familiar enough with this book to point out what is wrong with these verses. "longsuffering" we know isn't a word. This is also a huge run-on sentence. "unlearned" is also neither a word nor should it be in scriptures. Convenient for the spirit of anti-christ that these changes have made the KJV bible the worst translation now to force people to use other versions. What's worse is that no one is alarmed because of how bad the KJV has truly become in comparison to it's unaltered state.
Mike: So two very important things here. One. Paul was given wisdom and wrote that wisdom down in his letters and that there are some that look at those words and those letters and distort them as they do with the rest of the scriptures to their own destruction.
TSBC: What comes to mind for me is a famous quote people use from the bible "My people perish for lack of knowledge". You can clearly guess why I mention this because now it says destroyed instead of perish.
Mike: Again with Mandela Effect it's all about determining if scriptures have changed and trying to unveil the true scripture or relying on your own thoughts and perceptions which is again very dangerous. The main thing here is Paul was given wisdom by God and wrote to it in all of his letters.
Now you have to understand that wisdom is actually a gift of the spirits…
TSBC: No Mike. It is the "fruit of the Spirit". Where do you get "spirits" from?
Mike: …in 1 Corinthians 12:7-8
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
…so you can see that knowledge and wisdom is a gift given by God's Spirit and it was given to Paul of which he wrote in his letters. You can see in Colossians and 1 Thessalonians…some of these verses say…Colossians 4:16
And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
TSBC: "cause that it be read" Really?!?!?
Mike: …or in Thessalonians it says…1 Thessalonians 5:27
I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
TSBC: Who among us are holy? Our robes are as rags in comparison to Jesus and our Father in heaven.
Mike: So again. Wisdom and knowledge are given by God's Spirit. It was given to Paul. He put that wisdom and knowledge into his letters to be read to all the churches and finally as we see in 2 Timothy 3:16
scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
TSBC: Scriptures was always called the INSPIRED word of God.
Mike: …and so yes, being that all that scripture is breathed out by God and that the wisdom and knowledge was given to Paul and all the other writers of the New Testament was given to them as a gift of the Spirit, it essentially was wisdom and knowledge breathed out by God and written into letters which means it is scripture which means it is unbreakable. It is truth and so it really goes back to my testimony and the reason why I am so upset over people taking the Mandela Effect too far is because my testimony is that I was trying to investigate whether Jesus Christ is real.
…and I search and scoured the internet looking for every article and I found ones that said He was real and gave good evidence for it and others that said He wasn't and that is just about Him being present on the Earth let alone Him being the only begotten Son of God. There's all this contradiction. I could not find legitimate evidence myself and there is all this fake news in the world. Everything is fake news and I just couldn't discern what is truth anymore and I said there just has to be some truth in this world.
…and that is where I submitted to God and I said please let me know you are real. Please let me know you are the Son of God. You can save me from my sins and in a very personal way you can see in my testimony. He pulled down the veil. He revealed himself to me and I was baptized in the Spirit…
TSBC: Holy Spirit?
Mike: …and was overcome with great joy in knowing He is truth and I finally said Wow the bible testifies all scriptures…all scripture testifies about Christ and it's true. It's God breathed. It is in-errant. It is without error…
TSBC: So there are no errors in scriptures whatsoever? I've already pointed out that there are words that don't exist as well as sentence structure errors. Let's look at some more.
And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
Now who bought the potter's field? Was it Judas or the chief priests?
And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
So when did the Earth dry up after the flood?
And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
I'm guessing based on this the first time was a trial run? I don't think so.
Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Was his name Jonah or really Jonas? Whale or fish?
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
One verse says "from the water" and another says "out of the ground", so which is it?
The point is that scriptures are full of errors now and more are added as the bible continues to change.
Mike: …and finally I have something to base my life off of because it is truth. It is never changing. It is a solid foundation and I can learn about Christ more through His word.
TSBC: So is your relationship with Jesus Christ or is it with the bible?
Mike: But if you look at the Mandela effect it destroys everything. As I've seen in these social media groups you start to question more and more and more…
TSBC: More keeps being added to our list because more verses keep changing!
Mike: …and people getting infatuated with the subject to the point where they get consumed with trying to find as many errors in the bible as they possibly can just to prove the point to where scripture doesn't even matter anymore.
TSBC: The original scriptures matter very much to us. But with researching all the verses that have been supernaturally changed, we're hoping that at least one verse you will have had hidden in your heart. That is why we keep diligently searching for the one verse that will make you see the truth to the times we are in. Sadly this has not worked when trying to discuss this with the majority of people that have read scriptures for years. It's crazy how strong this delusion is.
Mike: Let me just read that last paragraph of that one lady's email from last year.
The Bible HAS changed and continues to change. I will not even let my husband…
Mike: …which that is just another un-biblical thing because you're husband is your head…
who is a fairly new believer, read it anymore because it can no longer be trusted.
Mike: That is the end game. That is the end game. That is the enemy. That is satan. He wants you to put down your bible and never open it up again and he wants you to rely on your own intuition. People who favor the Mandela Effect will say No this is actually living by the Spirit. If we live by the Spirit and not by the letter we can just trust the Spirit that's in our own lives. Well yes we are supposed to trust the Spirit, but scripture…
TSBC: …but nothing. We place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone. We do not promote idol worship by transferring that faith and trust to the bible instead.
Mike: …also says Test the Spirits. Test your own self because your imagination can also run wild so what grounds you is the scripture. I test my own self with the scripture. I test others and what they say by the scripture, but if I have no scripture then I'm just lost. I'm tossed to and fro in the doctrines and ways of men because I have nothing to base anything off of anymore.
TSBC: We base what we know off of His word that He has hidden in our hearts. Although the famine for hearing the words of the Lord is occurring now, we stick strong to what we know as the truth because we hear our Shepherd and know His voice and follow Him wherever He goes. We stopped following scriptures because His voice isn't there anymore.
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
–2 Corinthians 4:4
I honestly can't thank God enough that I can see through the delusion taking place now.
Mike: So I end with this. There's allot of people that I know are subscribers to my channel…. Good kind hearted people…people who love Jesus and follow Jesus…and are looking into this Mandela Effect some more than others. I'm not saying completely ditch this Mandela Effect if you just want to investigate it and you look at secular things that are changing by all means you know go ahead, but you really need to reconsider when you start to say that God's Word, His scripture which the Lord your God said in his own word that it is unbreakable, that you would go against him and teach other people that they need to put down their bibles. Teach other people that what it says isn't what it really said and it might be this or that. This is a serious serious thing because the bible says that people who do such things it is for their own destruction. That is a stern warning. Allot of people aren't going to like that but even though this doesn't sound like a loving message I do this because I love you and many of you are going astray and it needs to stop.
TSBC: So secular supernatural changes are ok but the bible changes aren't? It feels like you're sending mixed signals here. The Mandela Effect is basically the complete rewrite of history that also includes the bible. Without the Bible and the prophecies warning us that these changes would take place, would not only make the Mandela Effect seem meaningless, but we would have no clues or any ideas of the times we are in.
Mike: So. Again. Not going to read the comments. It's probably going to be ugly but it needed to be said. This is Mike with On Point Preparedness. Keep the faith. God bless you all.
TSBC: God bless you too Mike. We just pray that you wake up from this delusion before it is too late.
