I. ONE GOD – PRISTINE APOSTOLIC MONOTHEISM
“For even if there are also so-called “gods,” whether in the sky or on the land, as there are even many gods and many masters, but to us there is one God, the Father, from whom everything [originated], and we unto Him. There is also one Master, Jesus Anointed, through whom everything [originated], and we through Him.” (1 Cor. 8:5-6 LGV)
“Therefore, I the prisoner in the Master, plead with you to walk worthy of the invitation with which you were called with all humility and meekness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to preserve the unity of the Breath in the bond of peace: a common Body and a common Breath, just as you were [originally] called in a common Hope of your calling, a common Master, a common Faith, a common immersion, a common God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in all.” (Eph. 4:1-6 LGV)
“For this is how God loved the world, inasmuch as He gave His Only-Begotten Son so that the whole [entity] believing unto Him should not be destroyed, but may have age-enduring life.” (John 3:16 LGV) “For the salary of sin is death. But the gift of God is age-enduring life, in Anointed Jesus our Master” (Rom. 6:23 LGV). “But whenever this corrupt thing should put on non-corruption, and this dying thing should put on immortality, then will occur the word which has been written, ‘Death was swallowed into victory.’ Death, where is your sting? Grave, where is your victory?” (1 Cor. 54-55 LGV) “…[T]he Blessed and Sole Sovereign, who alone holds immortality, …” (1 Tim. 6:15b-17 LGV)
IV. PRISTINE APOSTOLIC ESCHATOLOGY
“For He has declared somewhere concerning the seventh [day] thus: “And God ceased in the seventh day from all His works,” and thus again: “whether they shall come into My Rest.” Since then it remains for some to enter into it, and those to whom it was previously announced did not enter because of obstinance, He specifies another set day – “This day.” After such a long time He says in [the Psalm of] David according as was previously proclaimed, “This day if you hear His voice, you should not harden your hearts.” For if Joshua [had provided] them the Rest, He would not have been speaking of another day after those. Consequently, the Sabbath-observance awaits the people of God.” (Heb. 4:4-9 LGV)
“I charge you then, before God, and [before] the Master Jesus Anointed, the one about to judge the living and the dead at His Advent and His Kingdom: Proclaim the Word! Stand upon [it] when convenient and [when] inconvenient. Admonish, rebuke, plead with all patience and instruction. For the appointed time will come when they will not tolerate sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they will accumulate teachers [for] massaging their ears and they will turn away their ears from the truth and be turned aside to fabrications. But you be sober in everything, endure hardship, perform the function of a good-news messenger, fully perform your duty.” (1 Tim. 4:1-5 LGV)
“I am testifying to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone should add to them, God will add to him the plagues having been written in this book. And if anyone removes from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of Life, and from the holy city, and from the things having been written in this book. The One testifying these things says, Yes, I am coming suddenly.’ Amen.” (Rev. 22:18-20 LGV)
VII. LAST GENERATION VERSION (LGV)
The LGV is a completely new translation of the New Testament from the Greek with extensive commentary notes. It is intended for the last generation of Christians, those who will face the end-times predicted by the Prophets, Jesus, and the Apostles. The LGV is a study Bible for serious pastors, Bible teachers, and students. It is a very accurate representation of the Greek text in current English, although sacrificing some readability for the sake of accuracy.
