KJV..........still number one with God !
This work is on non kjv bibles.
Unless the bible is read in the original Hebrew, arabic, and Greek, all versions are translations of those languages; and are a product of its translators opinions . Is this what we really want to say?
The King James Version, or "Authorized Version," of the Bible, first published in 1611 under the authority of England's King James (hence the designation, "Authorized"), was in that day a very good translation, and is today a useful translation.
The inspired word of God was and is free from error, being the work not merely of men, but of men directed by the Spirit of God . Translations of that word, however, are subject to the limitations of human ability, and therefore, are imperfect. Moreover, errors arise not only in the process of translating from the original languages utilized by God to other languages, but also due to the fact that translations are made from texts of God's word in the original languages, texts which are themselves imperfect in varying degrees. No scriptures exist today in the hand of the original writer. Rather hand-made copies, and in reality, copies of copies, of the originals exist, some very ancient. These are called manuscripts. These manuscripts are imperfect copies because simply saying they are not the original. , They contain the same kinds of errors that slip into hand-made copies of any piece of literature, whether it be a work of Shakespeare, Homer, or a book report for school.
I have read some of the very original 1611 King James verses to see whats going on,. Most of the differences I have seen are just words that should have had a V where they had a U. Many words have added the Letter E where it doesnt belong. Theres no Big deal.
My brain can correct such minor errors as I read them. While reading the 1611 KJV, I still have no difficulty reading without loss of understanding. Even larger errors that may represent the misuse of a word or words were purely the result of the language of that time. There was NO evil intent behind any mistakes when translating the original word of God from the ancient texts into english. What can be shown today in this short work, is Satan clearly undermining the efforts to distort the original work of the ancient writers by adding to and taking away doctrine of God and using the errors of the KJV in his defense. The desire of my heart is to have Gods church claim one english bible version, one source of ultimate truth and to have Gods church reference one claimed authorized word of God for study, worship and growth toward Christian Maturity and truth.
My intent is not to expose the problems with readablity of the 1611 KJV but to show the translations errors of modern day bible versions from ancient texts; and pray that those who hear this CD will see that there is a source representing darkness tearing away at doctrines of the Holy Ghost slowly destroying what all Christians stand for and that is Gods truth.
In my studies I see how Satan is actively taking a role in churches today. A bible verse came to life before my eyes. 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. I saw how satan created false teachings by altering Gods Word to decieve those who where seeking the truth. Our beloved king james bible, the bible thats used for over 400 years to save souls and build them to Christian maturity was being altered. Its a real nasty trick. But to see this going on in Christian churches really amazes me. I became enthralled in seeing this spiritual warfare going on before my eyes. Yes it is true in every sense that the devil is actively trying to keep souls from being saved and keeping saved souls from learning more of Gods truth.
Satan is as clever in decieving as Jesus is in revealing truth. Satan will come as an angel of light decieving many and he will do this in the most subtle and accepted way. Satan would be tossed out a church if he came in a with pitchfork in hand so instead he will come in very quietly, as a friend and as a helper.
I want to expose not only this corruption from its source but also on the battlefield where it can be witnessed with our own eyes. According to some churches, anyone can use any bible they feel comfortable with to judge truth, and test the spirits to see if there from God. Everybody has the right to use what material they want, but when a church endorses the material we will cover, than Red flags should fly high and sirenes roar.
There is more information on non kjv bibles than you will probably care to study. There are tons of important information left out of this work, but whatever information I share, I feel confident, that the use of NON KJV bibles in Gods church is morally wrong and this work here is intended to defend my point. I have not simply cut and pasted text to my work. I have worked weeks on this, sometimes for hours many days of the week.
Genesis 3:1-5 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Just a few words were changed and made Gods truth into a lie, sending mankind toward eternal seperation from his presense. Satans first recorded deception to man, was changing truth into a lie. You will see here that Satan is still doing the same thing he always has.
If non kjv bibles are being used in your church, please study the subject and bring the issue up to the pastor and elders. Pray they will listen and take your research seriously. Shades should never be pulled on spiritual matters. God says in 1 Jn:4:1: Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
God says never turn deaf ears to spritual matters because Christian growth is based on communication. False prophets cant be exposed unless matters of the spirit are exposed
I have made this CD so that my spritual concern will be heard.I pray something good will come of it.
They are all types of bibles claiming to be the word of God. The mormon bible claims that Jesus and Satan are brothers. The mormon bible claims that beleivers can be a fleshly God on another planet someday. Some 14 year old kid named Josepth Smith said he saw an angel who came to give MORE scripture to add to the present bible. he said God was using him to restore the church and people took right to it. (These people obviously had not studied the bible they had !!) God said his people would perish for the lack of knowledge and this is a prime example.
The Jehovah Witness bible teaches there is no hell and there is no trinity. It teaches that Jesus was NOT God in the flesh nor did he raise from the dead in a physical body.
The Koran teaches blantantly to kill those who dont believe in the Koran. It teaches that Jesus was only a prophet and Allah is God. The bible of Roman Catholosism is the most used bible in the world ! Its members are numbered above all other so called Christian Denominations. The Roman Catholic Church claims that it gave us the original bible. That Church claims Gods words were handed to their popes. They added their Alexandria writings to their already corrupt bibles. They wanted to destroy the real bible so to give power to the Church.
In History past, the Roman Catholic church has been responsible for killing thousands of Christians. They sent thier Jesuit priests into protestant seminaries, bible colleges and schools infiltrating them with their beliefs. The planted seeds of doubt to what Gods truth is in Christian minds.
Do you want to put your faith in these doctrines and invest your soul with the information placed in these bibles? Do Godly church's really want thier members to getting connected to God using those bibles? I should hope not, but some churches do not have a policy to where we draw the line with. They are told they can reference the truth from whatever they feel most comfortable with? To reference truth from books that are blantantly lieing to would be spiritual tight rope walking.
These examples of bible versions are very corrupt but the same thing is taking place in the versions that some church's uses too.
God is supposed to conform the world with his truth, not man conforming Gods truth with what he thinks Gods truth should be. Logic demands ONE SOURCE of truth. Why is mankind trying to put his understanding of what he thinks scripture should say ;when the bible says to clearly leave that foolish endeavor out of his Christian walk?
( Listen Carefully) KJV Proverbs 3:5-Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
Lk:24:45: KJV Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
2Tm:2:7: KJV Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
So you see, it is the Lord who gives understanding when HE sees fit. Revelation and ease of understanding does not come from man altering Gods Word. New versions are evidence of man exhalting himself to Gods supremecy.
Lets go to the begining. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. According to me, yes ME; I believe the whole bible was in existance with God since time began. How beautiful and God inspired that this passage speaks of the Word being God; because God himself said he places his Word above his name. You have magnified your word above All Your Name”. (Ps 138:2)
In his sovereign manner and because the gospel is God breathed; the words that were written down by the prophets and apostles, were set to be written before mankind was placed on earth. God is the past , present and future. It is nothing For God to have the bible already written down in His sovereign existence before he created the universe.
Not forgetting the 10 commandments of God through Moses in stone, lets jump to the Texual Word of God in the New Testament. That is the KJV version...
1 John 1-4 : That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us : That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.: And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh. How beautiful . Christ stand for every word that God has spoke;. Thats exactly why I feel that Satan is attacking Jesus by attacking his word.
Here we have the apostles giving us text the Word of God, so that our joy may be full. They have joined Jesus Christ with the Word. The Word of LiFE being Jesus Christ himself which is intended to be shared in the FULLNESS OF JOY ..... IN THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST.
Jesus says he came to give us life and life more abundantely. HOW could Satan possibly take that away? Its only obvious that he would take that Joy away by taking the word away.....and in turn taking Jesus and all he stands for; from us.
2 Peter 1:20-21: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Gods Word was not manifested by mans desire to write such things, but his word was commanded to go forth into a book, words that were manifested by God himself ! These words were to brought to mankind, to be applied to mankinds heart to do Gods Will. To take away and alter Gods word would definately be an obvious indication that Satan is stealing, killing and destroying Gods Will.
Here is an overview as I understand how we got the bible and the painstaking process to which it was translated.
The kjv Bible we have today is the same Bible God gave by inspiration to the prophets, apostles and those whom God used to reveal His word to us. Among knowledgeable Bible students and scholars it is well known that our modern King James Bible is an accurate translation of the The original copies of the Bible. There exist many copies of the Hebrew,
Aramaic (are uh may ik), and Greek Old and New Testament manuscripts that can be used to compare the modern translations.
For the New Testament we have close to 6,000 Greek manuscripts and manuscript portions, 10,000 accepted Latin versions, 9,300 other versions, plus 36,000 early christian church fathers quotations between (100-300 A.D.)
All but a few verses of the entire New Testament could be reconstructed from these sources alone. In addition to these ancient manuscripts of the Bible there exists approximately 2000 lectionaries that contain over 86,000 scripture quotes.
Lectionaries are early church service books containing selected Scripture readings usually from Gospel of Mathew, Mark, Luke, John and sometimes from Acts or one of the Epistles. It is easy to compare these early Scripture quotes of various New Testament passages, written as early as the first century, to our modern Bibles.
What is found by this comparison is that our modern KJV Bible reflects accurately the ancient and original text. It clearly shows that nothing has been lost and we can fully trust that the original text is preserved in its ancient form. Anyone that desires can reference for comparison the the translation from ancient texts to the English King James Bible or any other version of bibles.
God preserved His word through the existence of literally thousands of ancient Bible manuscripts dating back to 200 BC. It is a simple task to compare the ancient texts with our modern English translations. There are minor differences in the manuscripts which are called "variants". However, these variant readings in the ancient manuscripts have been thoroughly documented and compared leaving no doubt as to how the original text read word for word.
99 percent hold virtually no significance whatsoever. In fact its silly to bring up such a variant up but for sake of exposure I have mentioned this. Many of these variants simply involve a missing letter in a word; some involve reversing the order of two words (such as "Christ Jesus" instead of "Jesus Christ"); some may involve the absence of one or more insignificant words. When all the facts are considered, only about 50 of the variants have any real significance, and even then, no doctrine of the Christian faith or instruction from Gods Word is involved. In more than ninety-nine percent of the cases the original text can be reconstructed to a practical certainty.
Clearly anyone who states that our KJV Bible does not reflect the original manuscripts and that the KJV misrepresents the ancient scriptures by having parts lost or misstranslated shows ignorance to the facts. The text of the original manuscripts are clearly known and every variant reading or difference between manuscripts has been thoroughly studied and documented.

What are the real reasons behind new bible versions? There doesnt seem to have been a problem with the KJV saving souls and buildinng Christian character since 1611; so its raises some bone chilling questions as to why all these new versions are coming out. For the bible scholar knows that in these last days a great apostasy will take place. A new world order is forming and the antichrist who is 1 part of the 3 part unholy trinity will come on the scene. Christians know that Satan desires to unite the worlds, political system, monetary system and religious system. Could the onslaught of these new bibles be an indication that this one world religious system is begining to take place?
Romans 1:24: Who changed the truth of God into a lie. Lets listen to God and see how he feels about His Word _____
God’s Word is Sacred. Indeed He Himself holds it more sacred than His very Own Name. So the Psalmist declared “For You have magnified your word above All Your Name”. (Ps 138:2) God holds his Word more precious than his own name.
For this reason, God Himself forbids anyone adding to or deleting from His Word, and with fearful consequences-for to do so, one exalts himself above God. God says “My covenant I will not break, nor alter the Word that has gone out of My lips”. (Ps 89:34). He commands us: “You shall not add to the Word which I commanded you, nor take anything from it”. (Deuteronomy 4:2)
And again in Deuteronomy 12:32 God says: What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
(Prov. 30:5-6) EVERY WORDof God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. and what happens to liars?
(Rev 21:8) and All Liars will have their part in the Lake which burns with fire and brimstone”
(Rev 22:18+19) “If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book: and if anyone takes away from the words of This Book…God will take away his part from the Book of life, and from the holy city and from the things which are written in this book.”
Do you see how strict God is keeping his word pure and unaltered?? I dare not take a King James Bible and change it. Excuse me for saying but I have the fear of hell not to alter Gods Word. No matter how compelled I may be to make it easier to understand or read; if I have problems with Gods Word, I dont alter it to make easier to understand, I look it up in the dictionary or concordance...... I study to show myself approved.
Certainly the authors of new bible versions came across these scriptures if they re-wrote the bible. Logic demands that a converted believer who reads these passages would fear altering it !
In His High Priestly prayer, Jesus interceded with the Father “Sanctify them with Thy Word, Thy Word is Truth” (Jn 17:17). Thus any additions or deletions in His Word will change it from Pure Truth, to less than truth, or even lies.
Remember all letterhead text are the authors claim that those words are the words of God and all footnotes are of mans opinion.
Remember like Satan proved in the Garden of Eden, half truths are lies too.
Now for scripture exposing the problem... We are entering the battlefield where Satan and God fight for truth.
1 John 5:7 KJV For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Sounds good and reads beautiful.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that testify Thats it ! Thats all there is. They left out FATHER WORD AND HOLY GHOST. Why did they do that? That doesnt make understanding easier. Removing facts creates unanswered questisons.The identity of the Trinity has been stripped out of this verse ! Would your pastor read this out of the NIV?
1 John 5:8: KJV And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
1 John 5:8 NIV and Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. Agreement to what? It doesnt say to each other. Why is this left out? Again the Identity of the trinity has been avoided. Is there a purpose that these 3 are not bearing witness for some reason?
Why did they leave Heaven out of 1 John 5:7 and the earth out of 1 John 5:8 ? What was the reason that Jesus was sent to the earth? To save sinners right? Wouldnt Satan love it if our bibles kept such truth from souls ----That Jesus came to the earth to save sinners. 1 Tm:1:15: This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. The other newer versions say basically the same thing in this verse BUT its a start. Take the reason why He came to save sinners in one versions passage and the next versions update will take 2 out and then so on.
2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
In the new translation this verse is NOT EVEN FOUND !
End of track 4
The Fraud Exposed . Where going to read about the forefathers westcott and hort and their involment in the new bible versions.
As the day for publication of the Revised Version approached, there was great expectation in the English-speaking world. Although the revisers had remained secretive and had consistently refused to release details of their work, yet those responsible for its marketing had been very active. In Britain and America, Christians were anticipating an improved version of their beloved King James Bible.
Dr's Westcott and Hort had preserved similar secrecy with their Greek New Testament and only allowed it to be released by the publisher a few days prior to the publication of the New Testament portion of the Revised Version, which materialised on May 17, 1881. The Old Testament did not appear until a little later. The reason for such secrecy soon became apparent. Scholars soon came to realise that the "Revision" was a misnomer and that Westcott and Hort's Greek New Testament was a resurrected Eusebius ( you see be us ) text. Eusebiusism is Palestinian Theology. We will later find out more about Dr Westcoot and Hort.
Compare Mark 15:28 where we are reminded that Christ had fulfilled Messianic prophecy by being: "numbered with the transgressors". In all versions following Westcott and Hort's Greek New Testament, the whole verse is missing. LOOK right now. Mark 15:28 in the New Living Testament . Starting at verse 27 Two criminals were crucified with him, their crosses on either side of his. Then CRASH BOOM BA , thats its. Thats all she wrote. Being numbered with the transgressor is gone, vanished, vamoose !
The new life version has it but say this *It happened as the Holy Writings said it would happen, "They thought of Him as One Who broke the Law." Is that correct? My KJV says Jesus was numbered as a trangressor. He bared the sins of many yet he was sinless. God says Jesus was numbered with the transgressors. Man saw Jesus as one who broke the LAW but God says JESUS DID NOT BREAK THE LAW.
The Spanish new testament leaves this verse completely out. Yes the spanish new testament, A 1979 bible following the translation principles of the NIV. Do you see what happens when one verse is omitted. And then another bible team copies from that bible and leaves out something else out and if time would allow, you would eventually find a bible with nothing but the back and front covers with NO pages inbetween !
If we go back to our beloved and trusted KJV we can return to truth. God says in verse 28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. How beautiful. Prophecy was fullfilled . A prophesy from Isaiah had came true. Our God was numbered with the transgressors. He was more than just someone who was thought of breaking the Law. God loved us so much that he became one of us but still remained a sinless sacrifice for mankind.
Acts 8:37 KJV And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The New international version OMITS THIS VERSE .The new international readers version OMITS THIS VERSE. The english standard version omits this verse, the contemporary english version bible ..... omits this verse ! The new living translation omits this verse. The Message bible omits this verse. Who benefits from this. God? Christians? Non Christians or Satan himself?
These bibles are ripping Jesus Christ being the son of God right out of this passage which is shown in the the KJV. How much more pain must we bare facing this truth that NON KJV bibles are corrupting the word of God? Its taking away the redeaming power of Gods blood through his son Jesus Christ. They took the power of believing out of Acts 8:37 . Do you think God really saysl its OK to allow these books in your church?
This is what God says on the matter...
2 John 9-11Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. KJV
Eph 5:11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Jasper James Ray, in his book "God Wrote Only One Bible", tests forty-four Bible versions with 162 selected Scriptural departures from the King James New Testament and the Textus Receptus. Only two New Testament translations pass the test - Martin Luther's and Erasmus's! Westcott and Hort's New Testament failed 151 times, The New International Version heads the list of failures 160 times, the Revised Standard Version 158 times, while Nestle's Greek Text is listed 155 times! These 162 citations are only some of the hundreds of departures from the Received Text.
Lets go to a word change thats simply ridiculous
Mathew 4:18-20 KJV And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Well in the NIV it says As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
Its a SEA not a lake ! Why did they change that? What if you were on stage reading this out while members of the church followed your readings in their KJV. Would you not feel like a ninny ? Would you not expect some people to raise their heads looking around in confusion? What moron wrote this bible? How can you walk by a sea and throw a net into a lake at the same time? Does this passage alone respresent the looseness and irresponsibility that these translators have used trying to make the bible easier to understand ?
Now for something more serious...
Just about everybody knows the word "Lucifer" as another name for Satan. Ask any Joe on the road who Lucifer is, and they will know. The word "Lucifer" is found one time in the King James Bible.
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
What does the NIV say in Isaiah 14:12? How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
The word "Lucifer" is NOW GONE ! Stripped away and replaced with THE MORNING STAR. Again- This creature that is falling from Heaven.
The NIV translator says this creature is the "morning star". The morning star in the KJV is Jesus Christ. Rv:22:16: I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
The NIV has just put JESUS where SATAN belongs. Blasphemy. Does your church approve of blasphemy ?
A pure outright contradiction of scripture. Theres not even a footnote explaining this change of scripture in the NIV.
In the amplified bible the same verse says How have you fallen from heaven, O [a]light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]
Lord help us now its OUR trusted amplified bible has just spoke that Lucifer is one who brings light. Our KJV says this about who the light bringer is . Jn:8:12: Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. The KJV's Jn:9:5 says : As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. Maybe theres something I dont understand but it appears that our safe to use amplified bible has just replaced Jesus with Satan who brings light to this world and called him blasphemous satanic king of Babylon. Or is it Satan being replaced with Jesus? Wait theres more. The KJV says this about JESUS 2 Peter 1:19: We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
but------- the amplified bible says How have you fallen from heaven, O [a]light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]. O wait, help me Jesus. The amplified bible has just called satan both one who brings light and the DAYSTSAR !!
Has Jesus fell from heaven or is Jesus the satanic king of Babylon ? Wait theres a chance that Satan is the daystar but then that means he would be the one who is a light that shines into darkness... O help me, Im so confused jumping back from one bible to the other trying to understand what God really says on the matter........BUT YOU WILL BE JUST AS CONFUSED AS ME IF YOU DO THE SAME THING !!! How can I know truth if I try to derive truth from more than one source? God I believe you wrote only one bible but some church's say they can use more than one bible to get connected to God. Logic says the existance of 2 bibles claiming your infallible word is evidence enough that something is terribly wrong. These bible versions are making Gods word into a lie . How could a God fearing church such as yours endorse the use of these bibles ????
Now for a verse with some controversy as to who this verse is spoken about. Some think its Jesus but I think its about false prophets, regardless please listen to the word changes.....
Zech:13:6: KJV And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
the Message bible-yall may want to sit down on this one.....
And if someone says, "And so where did you get that black eye?' they'll say, "I ran into a door at a friend's house.'
Check it out for yourself !
Lets dwell in the New King James version for a bit. Is Jesus "God's Son" or "God's Servant?"
KJV Acts 3:25 -26 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. - Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
Acts 3:26 NEW KJV Acts 3:26 - To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning every one of you away from his iniquities.
In the KJV, we find that Jesus is God's Son. In the NKJV, we find that He is God's servant. These are clearly not the same! The Greek word found in the text here is "pais". It can be used in Greek for either "son" or "servant." So which one is correct here?
The solution is simple: look at the context in which it is used. We all know how important using context is in the bible. In English, we have many words that can have more than one meaning. If a translator, going from English to another language, came across the word "bear," spell it b e a r he would have a choice of meanings. But it wouldn't take rocket science to figure out which one to use.
If the passage described a man with a heavy burden, the translator would understand that the man is going to "bear," or "carry" the burden. If, on the other hand, the passage described a hairy beast climbing a tree, the translator would understand the correct meaning here applies to a forest-dwelling animal that will eat nearly anything it finds. It's not really very hard.
It's clear, isn't it? Acts 3:25-26 is talking about "children," and "fathers" and "seed." The word "pais" means "son." But the New King James translators chose "servant." Why? They were not alone. The New World Translation, created by the Jehovah's Witnesses who deny the deity of Jesus, translated this word "servant" also. So do the NIV, ASV, NASB and other modern Bible translations.
Could it be that these modern translators disagree that "pais" can be translated "son?" No, the NKJV committee translates this very word as "boy," "child" or "son" in Matthew 2:16; Mathew 17:18; Mathew 21:15; Luke 2:43; 9:42; and John 4:51. Yet they refused to translate the word as "son" in this powerful sermon where Peter presents Jesus as Messiah and Son of God.
One has to ask, why were these translators so determined to deny the deity of Jesus in this passage? Is this a Bible you can trust with your eternal destiny? How can we continue to deny what is going on before us. Please have your church listen. Send them a message to destroy those non kjv bibles and return to your infallible truth.
Do you have to believe before you are baptized?
Some say, "No, let's quickly baptize babies and children into the church. No need for faith before baptism." Others say, "Wait a minute. You first need to have faith in Christ to be born again and then be baptized."
What does the Bible say? One pastor whose doctrine was set with the niv baptised babies and little children without them being believers at the drop of thier parents request. The other pastor whose doctrine was set with the KJV baptised only after hearing the consent of faith from these "little ones".
What was the reason for this difference in doctrinal practice? The KJV pastor remembered in Acts 8:37 that when the eunuch believed on Christ and said to Philip, "See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?" Philip replied: "If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest."
The NIV pastor had only corruption to go on. This KJV verse was missing from his bible !!! There was verse 36 but immediately after Verse 37 was missing and it went to verse 38 !. Since these little children of a NIV pastor believed theyve been baptised accordingly, they and their parents have believed a lie.
What does the bible say about this? What does the God say about treating his little ones in this manner?
Mt:18:6: But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Do you see how serious this non kjv business is?
The removal of that verse is just one example of how the mutilated NIV weakens a basic doctrine essential to Bible believers. If that pastor had been raised on the NIV, he would not have known that that verse should even be there. His teachings would would go to students of scripture and spread like wildfire.
As new generations grow up without the sure word of the KJV, the clear teachings of these essential doctrines will gradually be weakened. As this happens, pagan teachings such as infant baptism will come to be accepted as biblical because the verses which contradict them will no longer be there.
As we trace the two manuscript streams, the Textus Receptus, which God has protected, and the perverted and mutilated Alexandrian/Roman Catholic Westcott and Hort-based texts, it becomes increasingly clear that the only Bible that we can completely trust is the Textus Receptus-based King James Version.
Is It Hard To Be Saved?
Mark 10:24 (KJV)
Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God
Mark 10:24 (NIV)
Jesus said again, Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
Picture two pastors preaching a sermon from this same verse, one from the King James Bible (KJV) and the other from the New International Version (NIV). The KJV pastor will teach that you must place your faith in God, not in riches.
But the NIV pastor has nothing here to preach but that it is hard to get saved. Because the NIV cuts the heart out of this scripture, it tilts the meaning of this entire passage away from the free gift of salvation toward (hard) works.
If the NIV pastor is a true Christian, simply fooled by the advertising hype pushing the NIV, it is doubtful he will preach that being saved is hard. Because someone probably preached the truth to him from a KJV Bible when he was young, he will know, down deep in his heart, that this is simply not true. So he SHOULD abandon this verse and find another one which to preach. But as modern versions keep chipping away at the Scriptures, there will soon be nothing left. The perversions spread the lie that it is hard to get to heaven. That makes it easy to say we need to do good works to be saved.
Mathew:19:24: KJV And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Again we are reminded how our desires should be prioritized. Put God first in everything.
Who says all Bible versions are the same? KJV's Ephesians 4:6
"One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all"
NIV same verse"one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all"
With an NIV its pretty easy for a Christian Scientist to say that God is "in everyone," .. even those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. But the KJV says to be a Christian you have to have Christ in you.
KJV Luke 2:33 33And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
NIV same verse"The child's father and mother marveled…"
Anyone who believed that Joseph, not God, was Jesus' true father would love the NIV (or any other of the Roman Catholic Alexandrian perversions).
KJV Luke 9:54-56
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
NIV says When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?" the [comparison with Elias is omitted]
55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them, [Jesus' words of rebuke are omitted]
56 and they went to another village [Jesus' reason for coming to earth omitted] .
Christ's statement of purpose in Luke 9:56: "For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them" is completely omitted in the NIV. The same sort of statement is left out in the NIV version of Matt. 18:11.
The Alexandrian writings make this passage meaningless! The PREserved Bible shows us that Jesus' disciples are not to take revenge, nor to "destroy lives," but to "save them." The whole lesson here is removed in the perversions.
In 2 Peter 1:3 KJV , God says...... seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. WE have everythig we need for life and godliness through the true knowledge of God. What would happen to our life and Godliness if our knowledge of God became tainted with lies?
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. (2 John 9)
Since Christ is the Word of God (i.e. the Scriptures, John 1:1, 14; Hebrews 4:12-13; Revelation 19:13), the doctrine of Christ is not just His teaching found in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, but rather, His teaching is the entirety of Scripture. Therefore, a teacher can be found to be true or false based on the simple fact as to whether he abides within the confines of the word of God, or does not (John 8:47; 1 Timothy 6:3-5; 2 John 9). What happens to a pastors teaching when the Word of God becomes less than what it should be? What happens to Gods sheep?
Lets read Isaiah 14:15- from the KJV where Satan will end up after his attempt at exhalting himself over God :I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
The KJV says Satan ends up in hell.
Now the same verse from the NIV But instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths. Why did they change Hell to the place of the dead? The grave is the place of the dead and we know spirits do not reside in graves. In fact over 60 places where hell is referred toin the KJV, they are replaced with Sheol, Hades and the GRAVE in some of the newer versions. Why do they substitute Hell for other words and places in the bible? Hell is where their is gnashing of teeth, where the worm dies not, where the smoke of torment rises for ever and ever.
Hell is eternal. The grave is not. The grave surely doenst have the same accomodations as hell does. Hell is doctrine folks. The new bible versions are corrupting doctrine. http://biblia.com/jesusbible/job6c3.htm
Lets do a study on Weschot and Hort. I will sometimes repeat facts as retrieving them from differenct sources.
QUESTION: Who were Westcott and Hort?
ANSWER: Two unsaved Bible critics. We will do a very basic overview of these 2 pagans who are the forefathers of modern day bible versions. Theres more to know about these 2 fellows than we both have time to go over.
Brook Foss Westcott (1825-1903) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) were two non-Christian Anglican ministers. Fully steeped in the Alexandrian philosophy that "there is no perfect Bible", they had a vicious distaste for the King James Bible and its Greek text, the Textus Receptus. The twisted beliefs and ideas of Westcott and Hort are well documented and can be easily found.
It cannot be said that they believed that one could attain Heaven by either works or faith, since both believed that Heaven existed only in the mind of man.
Westcott believed in and attempted to practice a form of Communism whose ultimate goal was communal living on places that resembled college campus's.
Both believed it possible to communicate with the dead and made many attempts to do just that through a society which they organized and entitled "The Ghostly Guild."
Westcott accepted and promoted prayers for the dead. Both were admirers of Mary (Westcott going so far as to call his wife Sarah, "Mary"),and Hort was an admirer and advocated and defended Darwin and his theory of evolution.
It is obvious to even a casual observer why they were well equipped to guide the Revision Committee of 1871-1881 away from God's Antiochian ( an tie uh kus ee un) text and into the spell of the corrupted Alexandria text which is a shortened version of Gods text, leaving out grammerical refinements and details.
They had compiled their own Greek text from Alexandrian manuscripts, which, though unpublished and inferior to the Textus Receptus, they secreted little by little to the Revision Committee. The result being a totally new Alexandrian English Bible instead of a "revision" of the Authorized Version as it was claimed to be.
It has only been in recent years that scholars have examined their unbalanced theories concerning manuscript history and admitted that their agreements were weak to non-existent.
Sadly, both men died having never known the joy and peace of claiming Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
Westcott and his famed partner, Hort, were among the founders of the Ghost Society in the 1850s. Fascinated by the spirit world, their club was dedicated to pursuing knowledge of ghostly encounters with spirits.
It was also Westcott and Hort who worked together to discard the centuries-old preserved words of God upon which the King James English Bible was based, replacing them with a polluted text gleaned from manuscripts provided by the Roman Catholic Church. Little wonder that their texts omitted many Scriptures which the pope found embarrassing!
When they were working on this Greek text, preparing to destroy the world's faith in the Greek scriptures which had served generations, they began to worry that things like their "ghost chasing" would undermine their efforts.
Hort cautioned Westcott to hide their strange views . HORT said "This may sound cowardly but I desire that our text should be cast upon the world before we deal with matters likely to brand us with suspicion. I mean a text issued by men who are already known for what will undoubtedly be treated as dangerous heresy will have great difficulty in finding its way to regions which it might otherwise hope to reach…"
He was right! Building upon their fame as Cambridge scholars, the two partners convinced the world that their biblical text was better. and BEFORE being found out their non christian practices.
It was used for all modern translations, including the recent NIV and NASB. As more manuscripts are discovered, their theories are being discredited, but the public is unaware of it.
Just like evolution textbooks teaching old, disproven theories sitting on schoolroom desks as though they were fact, the pews still pile up with Bibles based upon the disproven theories of Hort and Westcott.
What kind of church is being produced by these new Bibles? Perhaps it can best be described in Westcott's own words, "There was a time when it was usual to draw a sharp line between religious and worldly things." He wrote: "That time has happily gone by."
Its noted that HORT despised Americans and was racist toward blacks.
It is not an amazing thing that any one man could hold to so many unscriptural and ungodly beliefs. It is amazing however that such a mans beliefs and the books that originated from such men could be accepted by Bible believing preachers and allowed in their churches.
Unfortunately for the "new Bible" supporters, Dr. Westcott's credentials are super anti-biblical. Westcott did not believe that Genesis 1-3 should be taken literally. He also thought that "Moses" and "David" were poetic characters whom Jesus Christ referred to by name only because the common people accepted them as authentic.
He also said "David" is not a physical, chronological person but a spiritual type of person.
He says the first three chapters of Genesis are all allegories that have been believed by liberals and modernists for years. Westcott was also a doubter of the biblical account of miracles: he writes "I never read an account of a miracle but I seem instinctively to feel its improbability, and discover somewhat of evidence in the account of it." If any fundamental preacher of our day were to make this statement, he would be called apostate and thrown clear of the church he represented.
Westcott believed that the second coming of Jesus Christ was not a physical coming but a spiritual coming: he writes"As far as I can remember, I said very shortly what I hold to be the 'Lord's coming' in my little book on the Historic Faith. I hold very strongly that the Fall of Jerusalem was the coming which first fulfilled the Lord's words; and, as there have been other comings, I cannot doubt that He is 'coming' to us now."
Bishop Westcott: writes 'heaven is a state and not a place.'"
"Yet the unseen is the largest part of life. Heaven lies about us now in infancy alone; and by swift, silent pauses of thought, for recollection, for aspiration, we cannot only keep fresh the influence of that diviner atmosphere, but breathe it more habitually." "We may reasonably hope, by patient, resolute, faithful, united endeavour to find heaven about us here, the glory of our earthly life." Found in Westcott's book "Newmanism"
In the KJV Jesus identifies himself as the cornerstone. Mk:12:10.Lk:20:17,Acts:4:11,Eph:2:20,1Pt:2:6-7,
However, the NIV changes it to CAPSTONE. The capstone is the top of the pyramid - not the cornerstone in which the foundation is layed. In the New Age movement, the capstone - the Mercaba, the top of the pyramid, is the source where they channel Nimrod, the all seeing eye - into their third eye. The capstone is the symbol of Nimrod in many cults and in FreeMasonry which is thier god... a false god - satan. The NIV again trades places with Jesus and satan - albeit ever so subtly.- In Christ
A little known fact: In 1988 Zondervan and the NIV was purchased by Harper & Row, Publishers (now HarperCollins Publishers). HarperCollins publishes "pro-homosexual" books such as Making Out, The Book of Lesbian Sex and Sexuality described as "Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography,. . . Making Out is the complete illustrated guide to lesbian sexuality and relationships. . .the intricacies of love play. . ." and many other pro-homosexual books! HarperCollins is a subsidiary of the global media empire, The News Corporation, owned by Rupert Murdock. The News Corporation empire include Fox Broadcasting, Twentieth Century Fox, and more than 128 newspapers. Fox Broadcasting produces some of the most sexually lewd shows on television. Murdock also publishes the British newspaper, the Sun, notorious for its nude pin-ups.
Now where is Don Wildmon when we really need him? Don was quick to boycott Kmart because subsidiary, Waldenbooks sold Playboy and Penthouse. Kmart can't "hold a candle" to the "filth" spewed by The News Corporation. Why isn't Don boycotting Zondervan and the NIV? Friend, every time you purchase the NIV you are giving to people who produce pro-homosexuality, pornographic material — AND THE SATANIC BIBLE!

In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me. HMMM?,,,,, Wescott and Hort dont want us to know that Jesus went to the FATHER.
amplified bible leaves it out too. so does the english standard version. and so does the american standard version.
The new life version says You have not chosen Me, I have chosen you. I have set you apart for the work of bringing in fruit. Your fruit should last. And whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give it to you. This aint got diddly twat to do with what the KJV is saying.

Question: I know the New King James is said to be a "revision of the King James." But were the Greek and Hebrew texts for the New King James the same as they were for the King James?
Answer: The NKJV is not a revision of the King James Bible at all. The Greek and Hebrew behind the NKJV are the same as for the modern perversions. They are not the same as the Greek and Hebrew behind the King James Bible, God's preserved words in English.
A History of Preservation
There is a big difference between God's preserved words and man's perverted words.
God preserved the words of the Old Testament by the Levitical priests, who faithfully copied them through the centuries. The best manuscript, used by the King James Bible, was the Ben Chayyim, also called the "Bomberg Text." This faithful Rabbinic Old Testament, used for the King James Bible, was rejected by the NKJV committee in favor of a Vatican-published text.
Take a look at these examples:
Acts 17:22 kjv I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. niv changed it to very religious so did the NIV, NASV, ASV, RSV, Catholic NAB, etc.
1 Corinthians 1:18 kjv For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. same verse NIV For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
[This teaches the Roman Catholic theory that salvation is a process.] NIV, NASV, NASU, RSV, Catholic NAB, etc.
Do you see the chatholic influence in these corrupt bibles.
The fact is that in most places where the NKJV disagrees with the King James Bible, it agrees with the Alexandrian perversions, whether Protestant like the NIV, NASV, RSV, ASV, etc., or Roman Catholic like the New American Bible.
The King James Bible is God's preserved words in English. The NKJV is just man's most subtle perversion of God's words. Don't be deceived. Insist on the King James Bible, not "New" King James, "Modern" King James, King James "2" or "21" or "Millennium." Even though it is very similar to a King James Bible, it is not a King James Bible. Insist on the one you can stake your faith on, the genuine King James Bible. And God will bless you.
The Bible in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 warns of Satan's counterfeit: "And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;. . ." Isaiah 14: 14 tells of Satan's ultimate counterfeit: ". . . I will BE LIKE the most High."
And among his greatest counterfeit's is the New King James Bible (NKJV). Christians that would never touch a New International Version (NIV), New American Standard (NASV), Revised Standard (RSV), the New Revised Standard (NRSV) or other per-versions are being "seduced" by the subtil NKJV.
And though the New King James does indeed bear a "likeness" to the 1611 King James Bible, as you'll soon see, there's something else coiled (see Genesis 3:1) "underneath the cover" of the NKJV. Symbols are used throughout the occult. Harpers' Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience (p.594) says, "Symbols are important to all esoteric teachings, for they contain secret wisdom accessible only to the initiated." Many people have asked about the mysterious symbol on the NKJV.Symbols are used throughout the occult. Harpers' Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience (p.594) says, Symbols are used throughout the occult. Harpers' Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience (p.594) says, "Symbols are important to all esoteric teachings, for they contain secret wisdom accessible only to the initiated."
Many people have asked about the mysterious symbol on the NKJV. Thomas Nelson Publishers (publishers of the NKJV) claim, on the inside-cover, the symbol, ". . .is an ancient symbol for the Trinity." But Acts 17:29, clearly FORBIDS such symbology: ". . . we ought NOT to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, GRAVEN BY ART and man's device." The symbol is used for The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology whose desire is to to reach the recognition of divinity within. Exactly what Satan promised to Eve in Genesis 3:4-5: And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
The symbol is used on the book of shadows written by allestar crowley. Internationaly know satan worshipper.
Would God "mark" His word with a symbol in the occult?
The Preface to the New King James Version (NKJV) reads, "A special feature of the New King James Version is ITS CONFORMITY to the thought flow of the 1611 Bible. . . the new edition, while much clearer ARE SO CLOSE to the traditional. . ."
Among the first changes that greets the reader of the NKJV is the removal of the much maligned "thee, thou and ye". The Preface to the NKJV states, ". . .thee, thou, and ye are replaced by the simple you,. . .These pronouns are no longer part of our language." But "thee, thou and ye" were "NO LONGER part of the language" during 1611 either. (just read the intro to the 1611 King James, there are no "thee", "thou" and "ye"). In fact, Webster's Third New International Dictionary, says of ye: "used from the earliest of times to the late 13th century. . ." (p.2648) And yet the 1611 King James was published 400 years later in the 17th century!
So why are they there?
The Greek and Hebrew language contain a different word for the second person singular and the second person plural pronouns. Today we use the one-word "you" for both the singular and plural. But because the translators of the 1611 King James Bible desired an accurate, word-for-word translation of the Hebrew and Greek text - they could NOT use the one-word "you" throughout! If it begins with "t" (thou, thy, thine) it's SINGULAR, but if it begins with "y" (ye) it's PLURAL. Ads for the NKJV call it "the Accurate One", and yet the 1611 King James, by using "thee", "thou", "ye", is far more accurate!

Ads for the NKJV call it "the Accurate One", and yet the 1611 King James, by using "thee", "thou", "ye", is far more accurate!
By the way, if the "thee's" and "thou's" are ". . .no longer part of our language" - why aren't the NKJV translators rushing to make our hymnbooks "much clearer"? "How Great Thou Art" to "How Great You Are", or "Come Thou Fount" to "Come You Fount" Doesn't sound right, does it? Isn't it amazing that they wouldn't dare "correct" our hymns - and yet, without the slightest hesitation, they'll "correct" the word of God!
The NKJV claims to make the "old" KJV "much clearer" by "updating obsolete words" (New King James Version, 1982e. p. 1235)
How about that "obsolete word" - "hell". The NKJV removes the word "hell" 23 times! And how do they make it "much clearer"? By replacing "hell" with "Hades" and "Sheol"! Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines Hades: "the underground abode of the dead in Greek MYTHOLOGY". By making it "much clearer" - they turn your Bible into MYTHOLOGY! Not only that, Hades is not always a place of torment or terror! The Assyrian Hades is an abode of blessedness with silver skies called "Happy Fields". In the satanic New Age Movement, Hades is an intermediate state of purification! Who in their right mind would think "Hades" or "Sheol" is "up-to-date" and "much clearer" than "hell"?
KJV: "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
NKJV: "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it."
KJV: "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom."
NKJV: "And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom."
Hell is removed in 2 Sam. 22:6, Job 11:8, 26:6, Psalm 16:10, 18:5, 86:13, 116:3, Isaiah 5:14, 14:15, 28:15,18, 57:9, Jonah 2:2, Matt. 11:23, 16:18, Luke 10:15, 16:23, Acts 2:27, 31, Rev. 1:18, 6:8, 20:13,14.
Then the NKJV decides that maybe "Hades" should be "grave"! So the NKJV makes 1 Corinthians 15:55 "much clearer" by changing "grave" to "Hades"! ". . . O Hades, where is your victory?" Clear as mud. . .
Another one of those "obsolete words" is "repent". They take it out of the KJV 44 times! And how does the NKJV make it "much clearer"? In Matthew 21:32 they use "relent". Matthew 27:3 it's "remorseful" Or Romans 11:29 they change "repentance" to "irrevocable".
The term "new testament" is NOT in the NKJV! (see Matt. 26:28, Mark 14:24, Luke 22:20, 1 Cor. 11:25, 2 Cor. 3:6, Heb. 9:15,) The NKJV replaces "new testament" with "new covenant" (ditto in the NIV, NRSV, RSV, NASV). An obvious assault at the written word!
The word "damned", "damnation" is NOT in the NKJV! They make it "much clearer" by replacing it with "condemn" (ditto NIV, RSV, NRSV, NASV). "Condemned" is NO WHERE NEAR AS SERIOUS as "damned"! Damned is eternal! One can be "condemned" and not "damned". Romans 14:22 says, ". . . Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth." Webster defines "condemned": to declare to be wrong, but the much more serious and eternal "damn": "to condemn to hell".
The word "devils" (the singular, person called the "devil" is) is NOT in the NKJV! Replaced with the "transliterated" Greek word "demon" (ditto in the NIV, RSV, NRSV, NASV). The Theosophical Dictionary describes demon as: ". . . it has a meaning identical with that of 'god', 'angel' or 'genius'". Even Vines Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words (p.157) defines "demon" as: "an inferior deity, WHETHER GOOD OR BAD". Webster defines "demon" as: "divinity, spirit, an attendant power or spirit", but "devil" as: "the personal supreme spirit of EVIL. . ."
In 2 Timothy 2:15, the NKJV (like the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV) remove that "obsolete" word - "study"! The only time you're told to "study" your Bible. AND THEY ZAP IT! Why don't they want you to "study" your Bible? Maybe they don't want you to look too close - you might find out what they've ACTUALLY done to your Bible! The "real" KJV is the only English Bible in the world that instructs you to "study" your Bible!
That "obsolete" word "virtue" is replaced with "power" in Mark 5:30, Luke 6:19, 8:46! How does anybody confuse "virtue" with "power"? Simple - by being "bosom-buddies" with the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV! That's what they did!
One of the most absurd changes ever made is changing the word "servant" to "slave"! The NKJV in Romans 6:22, reads: "But now having been set FREE from sin, and having become SLAVES OF GOD. . ." The NKJV, in 1 Corinthians 7:22, calls the Christian, "Christ's slave". Talk about a contradiction! John 8:36 says, "If the Son therefore shall make you FREE, YE SHALL BE FREE INDEED." But isn't a Christian supposed to serve? Yes, in love. Not as a slave! Galatians 5:13 explains it, perfectly: "For, brethren, ye have been called unto LIBERTY;(not slavery!) only use not LIBERTY for an occasion to the flesh, but BY LOVE SERVE one another."
In order to "harmonize" with the satanic New Age Movement (and of course the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV!), the NKJV changes "end of the WORLD" to "end of the AGE"! And in it's no longer the "WORLD to come" but "AGE to come". The New Age Movement teaches a series of ages (hence the name: New AGE). See Matthew 12:32, 13:39, 13:40, 13:49, 24:3, 28:20, Mark 10:30, Luke 13:30, 20:34,35, 1 Cor 1:21.
The New Age Movement and the occult are longing for one called the Maitreya. The Bible calls him the Anti-Christ. New Ager's refer to him as the "the Coming One" - AND SO DOES THE NKJV! In Luke 7:19, 20 (see also Matt 11:3) John told his disciples to ask Jesus: "Are You THE COMING ONE. . ." In the "The Great Invocation", a "prayer" highly reverenced among New Agers and chanted to "invoke" the Maitreya, says, "Let Light and Love and Power and Death, Fulfil the purpose of the Coming One."
And to REALLY show their sympathy with the satanic New Age Movement - BELIEVE IT OR NOT - in Acts 17:29 the New Age NKJV changes "Godhead" to "Divine Nature"! ( ditto NIV, NASV)
And if you think the NKJV just "innocently" updated the "obsolete words", removed the "thee's and thou's" - here's what the translators proudly admit: "IT IS CLEAR that this revision REQUIRED more than the dropping of "-eth" endings, removing, "thee's" and "thou's," and updating obsolete words." (The New King James Version, 1982e. p. 1235) AND THEY AIN'T JUST A KIDDIN'! Here's a sampling of the required changes: Genesis 2:18: The NKJV ought to make Hillary Clinton proud: "And the Lord God said, It is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper COMPARABLE TO HIM"
End of track 11
a big problem is the fact that many of the worldly publishing companies are publishing Bibles and calling them King James Bibles when in actuality they are not. They are counterfeits. Because the King James Bible is in the publick domain and not copyrighted, these worldly publishing companies think they can make minor changes to the standard text so that they can please certain groups which translates into extra sales for them. That's the way the modern world operates to day. All the common ordinary Bible believer wants is the same Bible that his grandmother had and the same Bible her grandmother had and the same Bible her grandmother had etc. that's all.
Until the twenty-first century you could get a copy of it in any nickel and dime book store. To day you can still find it but you must proceed with caution. You will be hard pressed to find it at all in any typical Christian book store without some alterations to the text.
I would like to think these worldly publishing companies are just ignorant to the seriousness of what they are doing. However in some cases I'm sure that these deceptive maneuvers are being done with fore thought.
Cambridge who is a giant in the bible publishing industry has taken the liberty of making doctrinal changes. Notice the following: The capital S in the word Spirit has been changed to a lower case s in numerous passages. The capital S refers to the Holy Spirit, the third member of the Godhead, whereas the lower case s in the word spirit could have multiple definitions such as simply referring to a mood or emotion. Its primary definition means to breath. All living self moving creatures have a spirit within them. So many definitions could apply to the word spirit when it is not capitalized.
To change the capital S in the word Spirit to a lower case s is an attack against the Godhead, the most powerful threefold cord in heaven and earth: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Cambridge has made this critical error in the following places: Genesis 1:2, 41:38, Judges 3:10, 6:34, 11:29, 13:25, 14:6, 14:19, 15:14, 1 Samuel 10:6, 10:10, 11:6, 16:13, 16:14, 19:20, 19:23, 2 Samuel 23:2, 1 Kings 18:12, 22:24, 2 Kings 2:16, 2 Chronicles 15:1, 18:23, 20:14, 24:20, Job 33:4, Isaiah 40:13, 48:16, 61:1, 63:10, 11, 14, Ezekiel 11:5, 24. For hundreds of years Cambridge published these verses with a capital S, but now in the twenty-first century it has been changed. Actually this so called standard text edition first hit the market in 1993 and is being endorsed by many King James Bible believing websites to day.
Genesis 22:8: One interesting verses foreshadowing God was going to send his Son as a living sacrifice and proclaiming that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh: "God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:" The NKJV adds that little word "for": "God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering" And destroys the wonderful promise! Can you see Satans cunningness, his craftiness ! One word slipped in and changed the meaning.
Where'd they get their little "for"? From the NASV! From God presenting a lamb ( represent prophecy of the forthcoming Jesus death for mankind ) to man...... to God presenting a lamb for himself, and taking the redeaming quality of sacrifice and its purpose for mankind right out of this verse !
Genesis 24:47: The "old" KJV reads: "I put the earring upon her face". But the NKJV has different plans for beautiful Rebekah: "I put the nose ring on her nose". Where did it get the ridiculous idea to make a freak out of Rebekah? Same thing said in the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV! IT DOES NOT SAY THIS IN THE KJV !!!!
Ezra 8:36: The KJV reads, "And they delivered the king's commissions unto the king's lieutenants. . ." The claimed "much clearer" NKJV reads, "And they delivered the king's orders to the king's satraps. . ." Who in the world thinks "satraps" is "much clearer" than lieutenants? The NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV does !
Ok from here on down, I may begin not referring to what version has altered the KJV. Just listen to the changes.
Psalms 109:6: removes "Satan". (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV).
Matthew 7:14: 14: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
They changed "narrow is the way" to "difficult is the way". There's nothing "difficult" about the salvation of Jesus Christ!
Jesus says in Matt. 11:30, "For my yoke is EASY, and my burden is light." THE EXACT OPPOSITE! You do have a narrow walk in this world with Jesus once saved but it is NOT difficult once you put Him first. The word Difficult is wrongly used here in every sense.
Matthew 18:26 & Matthew 20:20: The NKJV (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)removes "worshipped him" from this verse (robbing worship from Jesus)
mathew 18:26 KJV The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
NIV The servant fell on his knees before him. 'Be patient with me,' he begged, 'and I will pay back everything.'
NKJV The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’
New Living Translation cant humble themselves to worship Jesus, they say But the man fell down before the king and begged him, `Oh, sir, be patient with me, and I will pay it all.'
MATHEW 20:20 kjvThen came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him
NIV Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.
NKJV Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Him with her sons, kneeling down and asking something from Him.
Mark 13:6 & Luke 21:8: removes "Christ" (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)
kjv For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
niv Many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and will deceive many.
nkjv For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many
John 1:3 : the(NIV, NRSV, RSV) changed "All things were made BY him;" to "All things were made THROUGH Him" Rips the capability to Create from God. Are yall listening? See the pattern? Do you think all these word changes are just meer coincidence?
John 4:24: (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV) change "God is a spirit" to the impersonal, New Age pantheistic (pan thee is tic),"God is spirit"
John 14:2: (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV) and (NKJV 1979 edition) changed "mansions" to "dwelling places"
John 14:16: (NASV) referring to the holy spirit they change "comforter" to "helper
Acts 4:27, 30: (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV) change "holy child" to "holy servant" (refers to Jesus)
Acts 12:4: (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)change "Easter" to "Passover"
Acts 17:22: (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV)changes "superstitious" to "religious"
Acts 24:14: (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV)change "heresy" to "sect"
Romans 1:18:(NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV)
change "hold the truth" to "suppress the truth"
Romans 5:8: (NIV, NASV)change "commendeth" to "demonstrates"
Romans 16:18:(NIV, NASV, NRSV) change "good words and fair speeches" to "smooth words and flattering speech"
1 Cor. 1:21: changed "foolishness of preaching" to "foolishness of the message preached"
There's nothing foolish about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Unless you're not saved! 1 Cor. 1:18 says: "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish FOOLISHNESS. . ." I wonder where that leaves the translators of the NKJV, NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV?
1 Cor. 6:9: removes "effeminate" (NIV, NRSV, RSV)
1 Cor. 9:27: change "castaway" to "disqualified" (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV)
2 Cor. 2:10: change "person of Christ" to "presence of Christ" (NASV, NRSV, RSV)
2 Cor. 2:17: With all the "corruptions" in the NKJV, you'd expect 2 Cor. 2:17 to change.
KJV For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
nasb For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but )as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God
New Living testament says You see, we are not like those hucksters--and there are many of them--who preach just to make money. Id says this one is off a bit
2 Cor. 5:17: change "new creature" to "new creation" (NIV, NRSV, RSV)
2 Cor. 10:5: (NIV, RSV) change "imaginations" to "arguments". Considering New Age "imaging" and "visualization" is now entering the church, this verse in the "old" KJV just won't do.
2 Cor. 11:6: change "rude in speech" to "untrained in speech"
Gal. 2:20: omit "nevertheless I live" (NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV)
kjv I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
niv have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. BLASPHEMY
aMPLIFIED FOLLOWS PERSUIT WITH THE NIV i have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Phil. 2:6: (NKJV 1979e.) (NIV, NASV, RSV)change "thought it not robbery to be equal with God" to "did not consider equality with God something to be grasped". (robs Jesus Christ of deity)
Phil. 3:8: (NIV, NASV, NRSV)change "dung" to "rubbish"
1 Thess. 5:22 (NASV, RSV, NSRV) changed "all appearance of evil" to "every form of evil"
1 Timothy 6:5: The NKJV changes "gain is godliness" to "godliness is a MEANS OF gain". There are NO Greek texts with "means of" in them! Where, oh where, did they come from? Care to take a wild guess? YOU GOT IT! The NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV!
1 Timothy 6:10: The NKJV changes "For the love of money is the root of all evil:" to "For the love of money is a root of all KINDS OF evil". The words "KINDS OF" are found in NO Greek text in the world! Where did they get them? Straight from the NIV, NASV, NRSV!
1 Tim. 6:20: change "science" to "knowledge" (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)
Titus 3:10: change "heretic" to "divisive man" (NIV)
Hebrews 4:8 & Acts 7:45: "Jesus" is changed to "Joshua". (NIV, NASV, RSV)
2 Pet. 2:1: change "damnable heresies" to "destructive heresies" (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)
1 John 3:16: (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)remove "love of God";
1 John 5:13: KJV These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
The NKJV reads: "These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may CONTINUE TO believe in the name of the Son of God." They add "CONTINUE TO" without any Greek text whatsoever! Not even the perverted NIV, NASV, NRSV and RSV go that far! A cruel, but subtil (see Genesis 3:1) attack on the believer's eternal security!
Rev. 2:13: change "Satan's seat" to "Satan's throne" (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)
Rev. 6:14: "Heaven" is changed to "sky" in (NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV)
AND THAT DOESN'T SCRATCH THE SURFACE OF ALL THE CHANGES!
The NKJV removes the word "Lord" 66 times!
The NKJV removes the word God 51 times!
The NKJV removes the word "heaven" 50 times!
In just the New Testament alone the NKJV removes 2.289 words from the KJV!
The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes!
And most will match the NIV, NASV, RSV, or RSV!
Thomas Nelson Publishers have the audacity to claim in an ad for the NKJV (Moody Monthly, June 1982, back cover), "NOTHING HAS BEEN CHANGED except to make the original meaning clearer."
The New King James is a COUNTERFEIT! It's NOT NEW! The changes are already in the NIV, NASV, NRSV, or RSV! And it's certainly NOT true to the 1611 King James Bible!
Even more impressive is the degree of textual variance in existing copies. Considering the enormous number of ancient New Testament manuscripts, there are only nominal differences in the various copies. The data for the New Testament is impressive. Only 40 lines, or one fifth of one per cent are in question.
Further support for the Bible comes from the fact that events of the New Testament are supported by writings outside the Bible. Corroboration is available from several secular and Jewish historians of anicent times. (Examples: Tacitus, Suetonius, Pliny the Younger, Epictetus, Lucian, Aristides, Josephus, etc.)
Another interesting thing is the thousands of quotations found in writings of the early Church Fathers (A.D. 100-450).
Even if all the New Testament manuscripts disappeared, it would still be possible to reconstruct almost the entire New Testament with quotes from the Church Fathers.
In addition to ithe KJV being externally verified, significant further evidence of its reliability is the internally consistent nature of the Bible. It is truly an amazingly consistent document. The messages of approximately 40 different writers of the 66 books of the Bible, written over 1,500 years, in three different languages, all fit together like the pieces of a giant jigsaw puzzle. There is one continual theme throughout-God's plan of salvation from sin won for the whole world by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This consistency itself attests to the miracle of this book.
The carnal mind cannot understand all spiritual things. If one cant handle that concept, its not acceptable that man alter the bible so his carnal mind can understand it.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV He hath made every thing beautiful in his time:
In the NLT -God has made everything beautiful for its own time.
In the NIV He has made everything beautiful in its time
NKJV He has made everything beautiful in its time----------------- they changed HIS to ITS; how cold and inpersonal but again you can see the visible influence of satan.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. (Mark 13:31) .
Our Lord gives us prophecy to believe in. His word will remain with mankind forever, no matter how hard satan tries to destroy it. What side do you want to be on?
The work of illumination is the work of the Holy Spirit. John 16:13 says, "He will guide you into all truth.." I Cor. 2:14, states "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
Man, apart from the Holy Spirit cannot understand the spiritual aspects of the Bible. Man is a carnal being with a sinful nature. In man is no good thing and man's righteousness is as filthy rags (Isa. 64:6). Man in his natural state does not have the ability to understand spiritual things. Only when he is indwelled by the Holy Spirit, when he receives the "new birth" can he begin to understand the spiritual things of God. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit when a man is saved, gives man the ability to understand the Bible. Note what God says in 1 Cor. 2:10-14: Even God tells us WHY us what is behind these new bible versions. Mk:14:64: Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye?
I speak to the pastors that accept these bibles and utilizes them in their churchs. What will happen when Christs sheep find that they have knowingly been taught and directed toward such heresy and that their church leader allows such perverted bibles to have an active role in the church? Share the light that you have recieved and be blessed ;or keep them in darkness and be judged.
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver
tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou
shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve
them from this generation for ever. (Psalm 12:6-7)

And this is a reply from a cherished friend who read over this study. ( this work is not a study on interpretation ).How it hurts to hear those turn a deaf ear to such demonic work and make excuses for such !
Please don't be offended but I don't agree w u about the king James version. If u believe that that's ur choice but not mine. In my opinion there's too much Religious beliefs going on that are very petty to take peoples mind off of the most important thing / a relationship w Christ . In Jesus day they ( the Pharisees were going by religious rules instead of believing in Jesus and having a relationship w him. They didn't even believe that He was God himself walking around in a Human body and He was with them! Debates over the right true version of the bible is just an example of the rules that the Pharisees in that Day were trying to teach and push on other people. Pray and ask Jesus himself to show you the truth on this issue instead of reading things on the Internet or listening to others. Please don't be mad.. I can't agree w something I don't believe in. Which means that the KJV is the only version you can read or you're doomed or sinning. I stand up for what I believe in even if I stand alone..:)
