NKJV Counterfeit BibleThe New King James Version is a bad counterfeit of the perfect King James Bible! Satan is the biggest and the best con artist there is when it comes to deceiving people. He has worked through his children to produce many counterfeit versions of the Bible. Satan never gives up. If Satan cannot sell mankind one counterfeit Bible version, he simply produces another corrupt counterfeit Bible version. Satan is trying to corrupt the message of the Scripture from God to mankind. These perversions of the Bible are claimed to bring light to the dark sinful soul. But, in fact, the false light of Satan blinds the naïve or lost soul with these perverted Bible versions.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

You can often tell what is in a book by what is on the cover. This is especially true of the 1982 edition of the NKJV which has a Triquetra symbol on the front cover, as you can see in the picture with this article.

“Symbols are used throughout the occult. Harpers’ Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience (p.594) says, ‘Symbols are important to all esoteric teachings, for they contain secret wisdom accessible only to the initiated.’

Many people have asked about the mysterious symbol on the NKJV.

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.” (1)

Acts 17:29 “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.”

“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’.

Constance Cumbey, author of The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow and a notable authority on the New Age Movement, said, ‘On the cover of the Aquarian Conspiracy is a Mobius, it is really used by them as triple six (666). The emblem on the cover of the New King James Bible is said to be an ancient symbol of the Trinity. The old symbol had gnostic origins. It was more gnostic than Christian. I was rather alarmed when I noticed the emblem…’ (The New Age Movement, Southwest Radio Church, 1982 p.11)” (2)


“The three esoteric ‘6’s’ separated. Plainly displaying the interlocked ‘666’.” (3)

 Triquetra 666

 “The Triquetra 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…’)

The same symbol (with a circle) is displayed by the rock group Led Zeppelin. Members of Led Zeppelin are deeply involved in satanism and the occult. Guitarist Jimmy Page, so consumed with satanism, actually purchased satanist Aleister Crowley’s mansion. Most believe the symbol is from the teachings of Aleister Crowley and represents 666.” (4)

The same Triquetra on the NKJV, representing 666, is on the cover of a witchcraft book called, “The Craft”. This is a book of spells, enchantments, and rituals. It is a book to guide those who practice witchcraft, known as Wicca.

Below is a picture of the cover of the witchcraft book. The Triquetra is circled for you to see.

The number of the Anti-Christ will be 666 during the seven-year prophesied Tribulation. Why would any Christian want to read a Bible that is identified by the number of the Anti-Christ? This Satanic mark alone should make every Christian run as fast as they can from the NKJV that has been marked with the Devil’s number.

Revelation 13:16-18 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

Those who produced the New King James Bible tried to claim that it was easier to understand than the King James Bible. For one thing, they changed “thee”, “thou”, and “ye” to you. In the Preface of the NKJV it says, “. . .thee, thou, and ye are replaced by the simple you,. . .These pronouns are no longer part of our language.” (5)

But, the trouble with that is these words were not in common use when the King James Bible was written either. They were used to clarify if it was addressing the second person singular or second person plural. In other words, “thee” and “thou” simply means that one individual is being addressed. “Ye” is used to show that more than one person is being addressed. Using the word “you” for both singular and plural could confuse the reader or listener about if a singular person or a group of people is being spoken to. The original Scriptures written in Greek and Hebrew also made the distinction between second person singular and plural. The NKJV has made it harder to understand by replacing “thee”, “thou” and “ye”. An easy way to remember the differences in these pronoun words is that if it starts with a “t”, it is addressing a singular person. If it starts with a “y”, it is addressing more than one person. Many Christians were excited about these words being changed to you because they have become lazy in their study of God’s Word.

The King James Bible is written at a very low grade level. God wants everyone to understand His Word. The NKJV is written at a much higher grade level. For example the following word changes were made in the NKJV.

In Psalms 43:1, the NKJV changes judge from the King James Bible to vindicate.

In Ezekiel 31:4, the NKJV changes little rivers from the King James Bible to rivulets.

In Isaiah 2:16, the NKJV changes pictures from the King James Bible to sloops.

This is just a few of the hundreds of word changes to make for easier reading. This is a lie! You better hold a dictionary in one hand when you are reading the NKJV if you want to understand the more complex words used. They had to do this so that they could copyright the NKJV. So many changes have to be made before you can copyright a written work as your own. If you want easier reading, read the King James Bible! The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes different than the King James Bible.

Verses and words are changed in the NKJV that gives the verses a completely different meaning or even makes the “Bible” an outright lie. For example:

The King James Bible says that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob did not know the name Jehovah. Exodus 6:3 “And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.”

The NKJV replaces the word Jehovah with the word Lord. Exodus 6:3 “I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name Lord I was not known to them.” This is an outright lie in the NKJV because the name Lord appears 242 times starting in Genesis 4:1. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew God by the name Lord!

What Christian in their right mind would want to read a Bible that has lies in it? Guess who the father of lies is! The NKJV is the Devil’s crafty work. God is not going to provide a Bible full of lies!

John 8:44 “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Many doctrines are corrupted in the NKJV by changed verses and words. For example: Salvation is taught in the NKJV as being achieved over a period of time through a progressive sanctification. Notice in the following verse from the NKJV that it says a person is being sanctified.

Hebrews 10:14 “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”

The King James Bible properly says that a believer is already sanctified completely. The believers are sanctified. They are not waiting to be sanctified. “Sanctified”, means to be set apart for Heaven. Since Jesus did all of the work to pay for our salvation, we do not have to wait to be sanctified.

Hebrews 10:14 “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”

Many important words are omitted from the NKJV. These are words that may lead a person to accept Jesus as their Saviour. Hell is omitted 22 times. Blood is omitted 23 times. Repent is omitted 44 times. Heaven is omitted 50 times. God is omitted 51 times. Lord is omitted 66 times. Repentance is necessary to receive salvation. The omission of the word repentance could cause a person to be misled and end up in Hell.

The New Testament of the King James Bible is based on the Greek manuscript called the Textus Receptus. It was claimed that the Textus Receptus was used to write the NKJV. But, this is a lie because it was ignored over 1,200 times during translation.

Satan knows that he can not catch everyone with the same trap. Therefore, he has set many Bible perversion traps out for those who are not alert. You can get mad at us for telling you the truth. But, it would be wiser for you to study to find the truth. Those deceivers, who wrote the NKJV, attached the word “New” to the King James Bible to make it sound better for the reader. There are many footnotes in the NKJV that say that the other corrupt perversions of the Bible are better translations than the King James Bible. The NKJV is just a falling bridge to the other perverted versions of the Bible that you would not read to begin with.

It is time to quit reading the counterfeit and read the real Word of God, the King James Bible. Bankers train with real money so that they can recognize the counterfeit when it comes across their desk. Many people are being deceived about the truth because they only handle the counterfeit words of Satan. The NKJV is a counterfeit Bible. This is only a few examples of the apparent counterfeits in the New King James Version. Study the King James Bible and you will not be deceived by counterfeits. In the near future, we will give more examples of harmful changes made in the New King James Version.
