Summary: The 1611 King James Bible is based on the Masoretic Old Testament manuscripts, guarded and handed down by the Hebrew Scholars, and the Received Text (known as the Textus Receptus, or Byzantine Greek text) preserved by God through Godly men.


I just wonder how many of us have thought about the fact that this year “2011” marks the 400th Anniversary of the 1611 King James Bible, the King James Bible is based on the Masoretic Old Testament manuscripts, guarded and handed down by the Hebrew Scholars, and the Received Text (known as the Textus Receptus, or Byzantine Greek text) preserved by God through Godly men. __1611---1-6-1-1- added together = 9 which is the number of the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Gal.5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Not (fruits) but “fruit”

5-2-2 added together == 9—you may say that’s just a coincidence, I disagree, Our Great God is the God of MATHEMATICS. –GALATIANS also is the 9th book of the N.T.

2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:--

2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For 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.

Ø LISTEN as I read today’s text found in Psalms 119:89

Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.


If we believe the OLD KJ Bible is truly Gods Word for the English-speaking people then we should cherish it, study it, obey it, and fully trust it, how we view the Bible and its importance to our lives will have an eternal impact on us, to dismiss it is to dismiss God Himself.

The very fact that God gave us the Bible is an evidence and illustration of His love for us. The term “revelation” simply means that God communicated to mankind what He is like and how we can have a right relationship with Him.

These are things that we could not have known had God not divinely revealed them to us in the Bible. Although God’s revelation of Himself in the Bible was given progressively over approximately 1500 years, it has always contained everything man needs to know about God in order to have a right relationship with Him. If the Bible is truly the Word of God and it is, then it is the final authority for all matters of faith, religious practice, and morals.

But in these last day we have these so called brilliant minded men that are always tampering with Gods Words, and they are nothing more than tools of the devil, they some how think that they can improve on Words from God, that God didn’t really know how man would think in this day and age, so their going to help Him.

“MAN” would not even know that he was a “man” if it were not found in the Word of God.


In the O-K-J we read;

Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;--again, 3 & 6=9-- I am the LORD, I change not-

So God don’t change and neither does His Word, the NKJV drop the word “God” sixty-six times, according to G.A. Riplinger, who has written books to do with the perversions.

And so to leave “GOD” out 66 times is a theological change, made by the translators of the NKJV. There are many other such changes in the NKJV. In a presentation to the Berean Baptist Church of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, G.A. Riplinger pointed out:

There are 1100 places where the NKJV differs from the Textus Receptus, the OKJV.

Repent - is omitted 44 times.-- Blood is omitted 23 times,--Hell is omitted 22 times, and Damnation is omitted entirely. But the word “damnation is found 11 times in the N.T. of the O-K-J.


How can the NKJV be called a KJ version, how can that be possible? Any change at all makes it just another perversion.


Ø The Deity of Christ and of the Father is watered down in many places. LISTEN:

In Matt. 18:26 the NKJV has “MASTER”=The KJV has “Lord"

in Luke 13:8 the NKJV has “SIR”==== The KJV has “Lord”

In Acts 3:26 the NKJV has “Servant”=== The KJV has “Son”


The NKJV agrees with the Jehovah’s Witnesses “New World Translation” in removing the Deity of the Holy Spirit of God. Both the NKJV and the New World Translation call him a helper. How can this be if the NKJV is based on the same Textus Receptus as the KJV?



The KJV is easier to read, The KJV uses many one or two syllable words. But the NKJV (and both the NASB and the NIV) substitute complex, multi-syllable words and phrases. Listen to these contrast between the NKJV and KJV:


1 Kings 10:28 Keveh === linen yarns

Lamentations 5:3 waifs ==== fatherless

Ezekiel 31:4 rivulets ==== little rivers

John 18:28 Praetorium === judgment hall

Acts 17:22 the Areopagus === Mars Hill

Acts 27:17 Syrtis Sands ==== quicksand

Luke 16:23 hades ==== hell

How many times do you suppose some one angry has told a person to go to HADES ?

Even unsaved people know the meaning of hell.


Ø Now listen to these complex phrases of the NKJV when contrasted with the simpler phrases of the KJV:


Psalm 40:9 I have proclaimed the good news I have preached

1 Cor. 3:3 behaving like mere men walk as men

2 Cor. 11:29 do not burn with indignation burn not


One reason the publishers of the new Bible versions change words is to obtain a copyright. In order to obtain a copyright, they must produce a substantially new work. It cannot be just a minor updating of someone else’s original work.

The NKJV publisher (Thomas Nelson Publishers) cannot produce a substantially new work from the same Textus Receptus on which the KJV is based without making substantial changes in the words and phrases used.

In order to obtain a copyright on their NKJV, Nelson made substantial changes to the text of God’s Word. Nelson substituted complex, multi-syllable words and phrases in place of the simple language of the KJV.

These man-made changes not only made the NKJV more difficult to read than the KJV. They also perverted the pure Word of God.

To earn money through a copyright, Thomas Nelson, Inc. made substantial changes to the KJV in creating the NKJV.

Nelson’s NKJV perverted the Word of God to make it a substantially new work of man, which could then qualify for a copyright.

The NKJV is the copyrighted word of man. The KJV is the Word of God.


Why then are we so ready to accept changes to God’s word in the form of different Bible versions? The Authorized King James text has faithfully served the body of Christ for 400 years this year, 2011.

There are Greek manuscripts galore, including the corrupted manuscripts that the Roman Catholic religion uses.

We must remember that the Bible is a spiritual book and is understandable to those who are led by God’s Spirit. It is not possible for the natural man to understand it (I Corinthians 2:14—they are spiritually discerned), and so paraphrasing or simplifying it will do no good.

The Bible is not supposed to read like a fairy tale--Peter said, "for we have not followed cunningly devised fables" (II Peter 1:16).

The new versions have come up with some dangerous changes to the scriptures. The Lord God gives us stern warnings about changing His Word--

Revelation 22:18-19 If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Proverbs 30:5-6 Every word of 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.



John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son...

The Authorized King James says,

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

HERE the NIV changes the scriptures by saying that Jesus is God’s "one and only" Son instead of His only begotten Son. This change causes a contradiction in the word of God because God has more than one son --

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Let me say, that all of us realize that no one has the original Words of God and no one says that they do, but we are certain that God has the power to preserve His word and that he wouldn’t leave us out in the dark with an "imperfect" translation.

Ø LISTEN; In the authorized King James Version God assembled, and moved with His Spirit,

a team of some of the worlds best scholars to translate His word into the world’s most popular language, English. Some of the translators where killed for their faith by the CATHOLIC religionist.

Ø There are people who’ll make a big to-do about the italics in the Authorized KJV.

Unlike many of today’s translations, the authorized KJV translators let us know which words they had to add in translating in order to give the full meaning of the original text (these are the words in italics in the KJV).

These men went through the extra trouble of identifying which words they added for a clearer understanding in our English language.

Satan knows that in another generation people won’t be able to uniformly quote the scriptures. Imagine ten people with ten different translations trying to recite a psalm together. This amounts to Confusion, which God is not the Author of.

Satan knows that many newborn babes in Christ will not have the real milk that they need in order to grow because they’ll have a watered down version of the truth, and then the world religions will point to "Christianity" and say, "They don’t even have a definitive word of God. Anybody can write a Bible." Some already say that the Bible was "just written by men".

These many different "Bible" versions are Satan’s most successful attempt to attack God’s word. The Bible says that in the last days there’s going to be a falling away of the church and these other versions are helping to usher it along.

Ø Listen as I read these verses, 1st from the KJV, and then the NIV.


KJV: “And the disciples were astonished at his words. But 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!”


“The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!”

The NIV omits the phrase “for them that trust in riches,” CHANGING the meaning of this verse.

Philp. 2: 6 in the KJV

“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God”

NIV: “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped”

The FORM of God and the Nature of God are quit different.

1 John 5:7-8 in our KJV says;

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”

NIV: “For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

The NIV omits a large portion of this passage.

KJV- Psalm 10:45. Speaking of the wicked “His ways are always grievous.”

NIV- “His ways are always prosperous.”

KJV- Ecclesiastes 8:10, “and they were forgotten”

“NIV- “The wicked, receive praise.”

KJB- Isaiah 9:3, increasing the nation, “3Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy

NIV- “increased its joy.”

KJB- Colossians 2:18, “intruding into the things which he hath NOT SEEN.”

NIV- “what he had seen.”

KJB- Isaiah 9:1, “afterward did more grievously afflict her.”

NIV- “In the future he will HONOR Galilee

KJB- Proverbs 26:22, “The words of a talebearer are as wounds,

NIV- “the words of a gossip are like CHOSE MORSELS

Why would Christian people support denominations, churches or pastors that would support such error? Paul was deeply concerned about false doctrine.

Paul says this in Acts 20: 29-30 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
