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:
