The KJV 1611 vs. The Newer Translations

runkjbKJVKAH1

Over the past few decades, new Bible translations have been popping up all over the country. Many strong Christians have stood their ground and continued to believe, read, and study only the Authorized King James Holy Bible. Many others, however, have forsaken the Book that God has been using for centuries. Such people have fallen for smooth advertising schemes and have actually started believing that the modern versions are superior to the King James Bible. It’s very sad that most preachers today have not taken time to study the subject thoroughly enough to see what is really happening. Christians are being told that the new versions are easier to understand, and that only words like “thee” and “thou” have been changed. If you have been led to believe this too, then I urge you to pay very close attention to the information that you are about to read, because Satan is using the new versions to attack some of the most important doctrines in the WORD of GOD.

I invite you to take any new version that you wish and compare it with the King James Bible as we look at some selected portions of scripture. You are going to find that some of the most important doctrines of the Bible are being attacked in the new versions. Whether you have a Living Bible, a New International Version, a Revised Standard Version, or any of the other perversions of scripture ( including the New King James Version ), you are going to see with your own eyes that Satan is alive and well on the revision committees of the new translations. Let’s compare Bibles.

Let’s Compare Isaiah 7:14

“Therefore the LORD Himself shall Give you a sign; Behold, a Virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON, and shall call HIS Name Immanuel ( Emmanuel ).” ( Isaiah 7:14 KJV )!!

Most of the new translations have attacked the Virgin Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ by substituting the word “virgin” with “young woman” or “maiden.” A young woman or a maiden is NOT necessarily a virgin. Mary, the mother of Jesus, WAS a virgin. In fact, Matthew tells us so in Matthew 1:23, when he QUOTES Isaiah 7:14 and uses the word “VIRGIN.” What does YOUR translation say in Isaiah 7:14?

Let’s Compare Luke 2:33

And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of Him.” ( Luke 2:33 KJV )!!

The King James credits Mary with being the mother of Jesus, but does NOT refer to Joseph as His father. However, many new versions imply that Joseph WAS the father of Jesus by changing out the word “Joseph” with the word “father.”

Let’s Compare Acts 20:28

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.” ( Acts 20:28 KJV )!!

Many of the new versions attack the Blood Atonement of Christ in this verse by OMITTING the word “blood.” Does your’s? The Blood Atonement is a MUST for anyone to be saved ( Matthew 26:28; Revelation 1:5; Leviticus 17:11; Hebrews 9:22 ), yet the new versions are taking it out of the Bible!!

Let’s Compare Colossians 1:14

“In whom we have redemption through His Blood, even the Forgiveness of sins:” ( Colossians 1:14 KJV )!!

It is THROUGH THE BLOOD that we have remission of sins, but most new versions completely OMIT “blood” from the text. What about YOUR version? 

Let’s Compare Daniel 3:25

“He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the SON of GOD.” ( Daniel 3:25 KJV )!!

This is one of the great Old Testament verses which magnifies the Lord Jesus Christ. As you can see, the verse says that the Son of God, which is Jesus Christ, actually appeared in the fiery furnace nearly 600 years before He was actually physically born. This shows us that Jesus Christ is ETERNAL. He is DEITY, a member of the Holy Trinity, the “Son of God.” So the King James Bible EXALTS Jesus Christ.

However, if you have a new translation you may have trouble finding the “Son of God” in the passage, for many have changed it to read “a son of the gods,” or something similar. Does your translation magnify the Lord Jesus Christ by properly referring to Him as the “Son of God,” or does it pervert the text with pagan nonsense?

Let’s Compare Micah 5:2

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though  thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet  out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is  to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been  from of old, from everlasting.”  ( Micah 5:2 KJV )!!

The King James Authorized Version gives us the superior reading by telling us that Christ is from “everlasting.”  That is, He is eternal, as we’ve already seen.

Do the new versions contain this reading? No, most of them do not. Some say that He’s from “ancient times,”  and others say that He’s from “days of old,”  but these terms do not imply that Jesus is Deity. The term “everlasting”  DOES imply Deity. The King James is SUPERIOR, for it EXALTS the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let’s Compare Luke 23:42

“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.” ( Luke 23:42 KJV )!!

In this particular case, the dying thief is being saved. Romans 10:13 tells us that we are saved by calling upon the name of the “Lord,”  and this man addresses Jesus as “Lord.”  The new versions, however, rob Jesus of His Lordship by stealing the word “Lord”  from the text!! Is your version guilty or innocent?

Let’s Compare Matthew 6:13

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” ( Matthew 6:13 KJV )!!

The King James says that the POWER, the KINGDOM, and the GLORY belong to God, but many new translations omit these important words. Does yours?

Let’s Compare Revelation 11:17

“Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.” ( Revelations 11:17 KJV )!!

This verse reminds us that Jesus is COMING AGAIN, or at least it does in the King James. In many versions ( or perhaps we should say “perversions” ) the words “art to come”  have been taken out of the text.

Let’s Compare I Timothy 3:16

“And without controversy great is the mystery of Godliness: GOD was Manifest in the Flesh, Justified in the Spirit, seen of Angels, Preached unto the Gentiles, Believed on in the World, Received up into Glory.” ( I Timothy 3:16 KJV )

This verse tells us that Jesus Christ walked on this earth as”GOD” in the flesh. We know this is true, for “Immanuel” ( Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23 ) means “God with us.” So it is correct to say that “GOD was manifest in the flesh.” Do the new versions say this? No, most do not. Most new versions have taken the word “GOD” out of the verse and used the Word “HE” in it’s place. As you can see, this is a much weaker reading.

Let’s Compare II Timothy 2:15

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” ( II Timothy 2:15 KJV )

This is probably the greatest verse in the New Testament on Bible Study. Naturally, the new translation editors couldn’t resist the temptation to change it. The word “Study” has been omitted by most all new versions. Does II Timothy 2:15 in your version tell you to “study,” or has the verse been butchered to pieces by Satan’s scribes?

There you have it, friend, eleven good examples of how the new translations are NOT better. Satan has been very successful in convincing our generation that the new translations are necessary and that they are better. They are UNNECESSARY and they are SATANIC!! In fact, the Greek text from which ALL new translations are produced was constructed by men who were deeply involved in the OCCULT ( B.F. Westcott and F.J.A. Hort )!! BEWARE OF ALL THE NEW TRANSLATIONS!!

Beware of Westcott and Hort!! – Brooke Foss Westcott (1825-1901) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) were the two English “scholars” who produced the corrupt Greek text of the modern versions. Their dominating influence on the revision committee of 1871-1881 accounts for most of the corruption that we have today in modern translations. The Bible believer should keep several points in mind when discussing these two men. The following information is well documented in Final Authority, by William Grady, and in Riplinger’s New Age Bible Versions:

  • Together, the Life and Letters of Brooke Foss Westcott and the Life and Letters of Fenton John Anthony Hort run over 1,800 pages. A personal salvation testimony is not given once for either man, and the name “Jesus” is found only nine times!!

  • Westcott was a firm believer in Mary worship, and Hort claimed that Mary worship had a lot in common with Jesus worship.

  • Hort took great interest in the works of Charles Darwin, while both he and Westcott rejected the literal account of Creation.

  • Both men rejected the doctrine of a literal Hell, and they supported prayers for the dead in purgatory.

  • Hort refused to believe in the Trinity.

  • Westcott confessed that he was a communist by nature.

  • Westcott also did his share of beer drinking. In fact, only twelve years after the Revised Version was published, Westcott was a spokesman for a brewery.

Revelation 13:1
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.

Question: Aren’t some of these things included in the NIV in the footnotes?!!

12764778_1560647097582698_5137899606091105607_o

Answer: That is not the same as including them in the text. When a young Christian sees these passages have been moved to the footnotes, he or she will assume that they are probably not really part of God’s Word. After all, the translators did not include them in the text, but simply implied that “some” manuscripts include them. What they are not told is that the vast majority of texts used by the early church included these words. They are GOD’S WORDS!!

The above chart shows 10 or 12 examples of how the NIV has removed the words from the WORD of GOD. Do YOU want a bible that cuts out the holiness of GOD, removes lots of the promises, and in some cases just deletes the verse altogether?

Or do you want the true, pure words that GOD Himself wrote? Because there is power on in those words, and not in the weak, powerless words of man.

Decide for yourself. Just remember that GOD promises to curse those who mess with the word He Wrote. Pray the Holy Spirit to show you the truth. But in closing, let me just direct your attention to the following verse and mediate on what GOD has to say about the “Word of a King”. Hmm…

“Where the Word of a King is, there is Power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?” ( Ecclesiastes 8:4 KJV )!!

Use the Book that God uses: The King James Authorized Version.The King James Bible is based on over FIVE THOUSAND pieces of manuscript evidence, which is NINETY-FIVE percent of all manuscript evidence available. The new perversions ( all of them ) are based on the remaining FIVE percent.

3 thoughts on “The KJV 1611 vs. The Newer Translations!!

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
