  • Basic Understanding of the Philadelphian Church Period:

    • It is really nothing more than the King James Bible getting into the hands of the Bible believers, and them taking it to the ends of the world.

    • Whereas the domination of the RCC during the Thyatira and Sardis Church periods threw the world into utter darkness, with the entrance of the King James Bible into the world, it threw the world into blazing light!

  • The 54 men chosen for the task were divided into six companies

    • 2 at Westminster

    • 2 at Oxford

    • 2 at Cambridge

  • Though King James’s letter mentions fifty-four, the list that has been preserved contains only forty-seven. The discrepancy between the original number and the actual workers is supposed to be accounted for by resignations and deaths between the time of appointment and the time when the real work began.
