The King James AV 1611 Bible vs. The New International Version

It is said by many that the New International Version bible is just the same as the King James, but just easier to read and in more “modern” english. Is that so, or is it something very different from the King James?

It is said by many that the New International Version bible is just the same as the King James, but just easier to read and in more “modern” english. Is that really so?

Is that so, or is it something very different from the King James? Rather than getting into a long and complicated argument about it, let me just show you a simple, side-by-side comparison chart of a few verses from the KJV, with their counterpart from the NIV. What this will show you is that the people who created the NIV are in direct violation of Revelation 22 which says –

“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, 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.” Revelation 22:18,19 (KJV)

So with that, let’s compare the KJV and the NIV side-by-side, and you be the judge. The words which appear in bold on the KJV side of the chart are words and phrases that have been removed from the NIV.

King James Version – KJV
New International Version – NIV
Why did Jesus come to earth?
Luke 9:56
For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
Matt. 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
Luke 9:56
and they went to another village.
Matt. 18:11
(missing)
Is repentance important?
Matt. 9:13
…I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Matt. 9:13
…I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
For whom did Jesus die?
I Cor. 5:7
…Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
I Cor. 5:7
…Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
In Whom must you believe to be saved?
John 6:47
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
John 6:47
I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.
Was Joseph really the father of Jesus?
Luke 2:33
And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
Luke 2:33
The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.
Did Jesus give His disciples power to heal?
Mark 3:15
…power to heal sickness, and to cast out devils.
Mark 3:15
…authority to drive out demons.
If it’s hard to do, should we just remove it?
Mark 11:26
But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
Mark 11:26
(missing)
Who is in charge?
I Cor. 10:28
…for the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof:
I Cor. 10:28
(last part of verse missing)
How must we deal with our enemies?
Matt. 5:44
…Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
Matt. 5:44
…Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
Where did Jesus go?
John 16:16
A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
John 16:16
In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.
Is it John or the Devil?
Revelation 13:1
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
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?

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)

When Was The Last Time You Can Recall There Being So Many Powerful And Prominent Princes On The World Stage At The Same Time?

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

For some strange reason, we have a plethora of very powerful princes all on the world stage at the same time, who all seem to be working towards the same goal. Could one of them be the ‘prince of the covenant’?

In the book of Daniel, talking about the soon-coming end times, we read about the Antichrist, the covenant and the prince of the covenant that form the mainframe of the time of Jacob’s trouble. Paul says that the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church will take place when the man of sin is revealed, so we have that. We have the Abraham Accords, which in my opinion is either the covenant from 9:27 or will lead directly to that covenant, so we have that. Then we have the ‘mystery man’ the Bible calls the prince of the covenant. In an amazing coincidence, we have an abundance of rich, powerful princes on the world stage right now. Go figure. No, really, let’s go figure this out.

“And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.” Daniel 11:22,23 (KJB)

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but the Abraham Accords is the most transformative agreement between nations as related to Israel, and it was created in large part by Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed from the United Arab Emirates, who many call the most powerful man in the Middle East. Then we have Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from Saudi Arabia, who is very vocal about ‘peace in the Middle East’ between Israel and the Palestinians. Bringing up the rear, we have Prince Charles who any day now is about to assume the throne of England as its king. Fun fact, Prince Charles is on record calling for trillions of dollars and full military power be given to an unnamed person who needs to have those things to save the world. Whew, that’s a lot of princes, a lot of power, and it all swirls around a lot of Bible prophecy.

“Here we need a vast military style campaign to marsh the strength of the global private sector, with trillions at his disposal far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders.” – Prince Charles, COP26

The Bible does not say who the prince of the covenant is, but we know this much. He starts out in a league with the Antichrist, and then at some point after he outlives his usefulness, is ‘broken’  by the Antichrist along with the covenant. All 3 of the princes in this article are in favor of the Great Reset, in favor of supporting Climate Change, and are in favor of creating peace between Israel and the Palestinians by dividing the land of Israel. My point is simply this, the Abraham Accords was the game changer in the Middle East, and that would not be possible without the help of Prince Mohamed bin Zayed. The same man is also the ‘point man’ for the Vatican in getting Islamic leaders to sign off on the Declaration of Human Fraternity, itself a covenant that’s simply pregnant with end times possibilities. Everywhere you look since 2020, a prince has been popping up and helping to advance the end times timeline. And one of these princes stands out noticeably from the other two.

My own personal guess for which of these men would make a good ‘prince of the covenant’ would be, hands down, Mohamed bin Zayed, no question about it. Due to his involvement in both the Abraham Accords and with Chrislam, he is already more than halfway there. Now, if we could only find a connection between Mohamed bin Zayed and Emmanuel Macron, we would really have something to talk about. Oh, silly me, we already do and here it is.

Here are some articles that will greatly expand on what I am saying, and we highly recommend you read them, and compare what you read to what is in your King James Bible.

Jesus Of Nazareth For The Past Two Thousand Years Has Been Building A City Called New Jerusalem That Will Be The Forever Home Of The Born Again Believer

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ.

Those John:14 mansions that Jesus the Carpenter of Nazareth has been building for the last 2,000 years is New Jerusalem, that holy city that comes down from God out of Heaven

Have you ever watched any of those pet shows on channels like The Dodo where they talk about people adopting pets and bringing them to their new ‘forever home’? Your King James Bible talks about that as well, only it’s you who gets adopted, and your forever Home is a place called the New Jerusalem. New Jerusalem is the mansions from John 14, that Jesus the carpenter of Nazareth, has been building for us for the past two thousand years. Born again believers in the Church Age are placed into the Body of Christ and we are the Bride of Christ.

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3 (KJB)

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2 (KJB)

The forever Home of the Christian, Jew or Gentile, will be not Heaven but New Jerusalem, which comes down from God out of Heaven, it’s not in Heaven, and it will be the dwelling place for the Lamb’s wife, which is the redeemed Church. Please note the following about the Lamb’s wife:

  • She is engaged to the Lord Jesus Christ: “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 (KJB). In the context of this passage, to whom is Paul speaking? He is speaking to the Church at Corinth that is made up of born again Christians.
  • She makes herself ready for marriage: “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7 (KJB). Here we see the Body of Christ, the Church, having now gone through the Judgement Seat of Christ, all set and ready to be forever joined to her Beloved, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • She is now taken to her forever Home: “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” Revelation 21:9 (KJB). So why is New Jerusalem referred to as a bride? Because that beautiful City is filled to overflowing with a blood-bought Bride, that’s why. The City is not the Bride, it houses the Bride.

Our apostle Paul tells us in Galatians 3:29 that if we are saved we are counted with faithful Abraham, who was not a Jew, and faithful Abraham did some things that all Christians ought to be doing. First, Hebrews 11:8 shows us that when God called him, Abraham followed not knowing exactly where God was leading him. That’s how all Christians should follow after God. Secondly, after Abraham got to following God, he lost his love for the things of this world, and started looking for an heavenly city, whose “builder and maker was God” in Hebrews 11:10. Where is that City? It is New Jerusalem, of course.

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ. When a man falls in love, he becomes engaged, gets married, and then takes her to live with him in her new home. This three-step process is clearly seen in scripture in relation to Jesus and His Bride, which is the Church.

“Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:” Colossians 1:24 (KJB)

What Is More Important To You Than The Book, The Blood And The Soon-Coming Blessed Hope Of Flight #777 On Titus213 Airlines?

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is? This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power.

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

I do some of my best thinking while driving, and yesterday I had about 18 hours of “thinking time” whilst driving all the way from Florida up to North Jersey, where I was born and raised. While driving, I started thinking about all the times in the 31 years since I got saved, that the Lord got me through, made a way when there was no way, and did things for me that I was in no wise worthy to receive. I thought about where my walk with the Lord started, and it started with that Book.

“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” Psalm 138:2 (KJB)

How well I still remember that night on March 14th, 1991, when I opened that King James Bible for the the very first time, and I read what Jesus did for me on the cross. God loved me so much, that He died in my place on the cross. Jesus took on Himself the punishment that I so rightly deserved. All I had to do to be saved was make that Heavenly transaction, my sins for His righteousness. Alone in my room, with no Christian friends, never having been to a Christian church (I was a Catholic), I bowed my head, got on my knees and asked God to save me. My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power. This is why we put such emphasis on our Free Bible and Gospel Tract Program, what is more important than putting God’s preserved word in the hands of people who want it but can’t afford it?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 (KJB)

As I drove all day and all night yesterday, I thought about the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ, how amazingly easy it is to get saved. The Bible tells you that you owe a debt that you cannot pay, and that Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe. Take that free payment and live for life everlasting, reject that payment and you pay for your sins for eternity in the Lake of Fire. What is more simple than that? You don’t wind up in Hell for any sin you commit, you wind up in Hell because you rejected the payment for the sin you commit. Want to go to Heaven? Trust Jesus Christ. Want to go to Hell? Trust anything else, and you’ll get there.

I love our twice-weekly King James Bible studies, and I love it when the Lord takes us deep and shows us some stuff, but let me tell you something. Sometimes it’s really good to pull off the to side and just do a little private shouting to the Lord for His mercy, grace and goodness in letting you get saved. Understanding the deep things of Bible prophecy is great, but so is remembering His great love for you on the cross, and the job He left you here to do!

Only ONE life, ’twill SOON be past, and ONLY what’s done for JESUS CHRIST will last!
