The Mysterious Mark of the
New King James Bible
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."


The logo of the New King James bible is the same as that of the New Age Movement

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.


The three esoteric "6"'s separated. Plainly displaying the interlocked "666"

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."

Aquarian Conspiracy

And why does The Aquarian Conspiracy, a key New Age "handbook", bear a similar symbol? New Agers freely admit it represents three inter-woven "6"s or "666".

The Triqueta is used as the centerpiece for the logo for The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP). The ITP is a new age school following the Jungian Psychology [occultist Carl Jung]. One of their stated goals is "... to reach the recognition of divinity within" (see Genesis 3:5, "...ye shall be as gods...")

As stated earlier, many organizations, such as the World Future Society and the Trilateral Commission, incorporate this symbol into their logo. I think it is quite interesting to see that this same symbol appears on the cover of the New King James Bible as well!"(Dr. Cathy Burns, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, pp. 242-243) source - AV1611


 
What About The New King James Version?

Investigating the Accuracy and Faithfulness To The Original

written by Dr. Sam Gipp




The New King James Version

The New King James Version unlike most modem translations is based on the correct Antiochian manuscripts instead of the corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts. Unfortunately, the men doing the translation work view the Bible as imperfect. They would vehemently deny this charge in public because their jobs depend on it, but in fact they do not believe that ANY Bible is perfect. Not even their own New King James Version! Thus, to them, the Bible is lost ("settled" in heaven) and the minds of scholars are the only hope of rescuing its "thoughts" from oblivion.

Remarkably, the New King James Version, which claims to be more "conservative" than the New International Version, also has its fair share of problems. The New King James Version omits the following words:

Words left out or omitted by the New King James Verison bible
Lord 66 times
repent 44 times
JEHOVAH entirely
God 51 times
blood 23 times
new testament entirely
heaven 50 times
hell 22 times
damnation entirely
fornication 23 times
devil 26 times
soul 137 times

How could they justify such deletions? The fact is, they probably didn't even realize they were doing it. But if God is not in charge of making the translation, someone else has to be. And God hasn't watched over an English translation since 1611. One of the claims all new translations make is that they are "easier to read" than the King James Bible. The simple fact is that that is not true.

The chart below records how the translators of the New King James Version removed a simple word from the text of the King James Bible and replaced it with a more difficult word.

Notice how many times the New King James Version translators replaced a single syllable word with one of multiple syllables. That is not "easier to read." Imagine that you are dealing with a little child. You will want to speak with words with the fewest syllables that you can. Nothing is easier to read than a single syllable word. That is why many first grade reading books say, "See Spot run."

The King James Bible translators simply did a better job of translating than did those of the New King James Version. If the New King James Version translators ever made a first grade reader "easier to read" it would read, "Observe the canine motivating!"

In fact, according to tests conducted to determine the reading level of books here is how the King James Bible comes out in comparison to its modern competitors.

So you see, the King James Bible has been SCIENTIFICALLY proven to be easier to read than modern versions. But that information makes no difference when someone has already decided they need to get rid of the King James Bible at all costs.

Furthermore, unbeknownst to many of its supporters, the New King James Version is one of the most "gender exclusive" translations available. Some modernists like to call neutered bibles gender "inclusive" but this isn't accurate. The term, "inclusive" means both genders are "included." "Exclusive" means gender is "excluded" or removed. Modern versions claiming to be gender "inclusive" are actually gender "exclusive." In the New King James Version both genders are removed in numerous places.

The difference between the NIV and the NKJV is that the NIV makes a selling point of it removal of gender. Not the NKJV! It is one of the best kept secrets about this corrupt version. Since it is marketed to a more conservative crowd, its gender exclusive format would not be a strong selling point, so it is kept a secret.
