The King James Version Versus Modern Translations

by Maria Merola אריאל
© Copyright Double Portion Inheritance, September 2002, May 2011

This article is for the express purpose of comparing the “Authorized Version” of the Bible (aka King James Version) to all of the other modern translations that are being peddled in bookstores today. 

I did this research and wrote this article in the year 2002 before I realized the name Jesus Christ was not the true name of our Messiah. Today I no longer use the incorrect name of Jesus or the title “Christ.” The Greek title “Christos” was used for all of the false pagan gods of Greece.  Hence “Christos” is a poor substitution for the title “Messiah” or Mashiyach in Hebrew which means “the anointed one.” 

In this article, my aim is to expose the “New Age Bible Versions” that have an agenda to change the identity of our Messiah into Satan himself! In this expose, I will be using some of the vain titles for our Creator such as “Lord, God, Jesus & Christ,” but only because I am trying to show the differences between the modern translations versus the King James Version. 

Usually in all of my articles, I use the original Hebrew Sacred name of YaHuWaH for our Creator and Yahuwshuwa for the Messiah. My main goal is to illustrate the differences between the King James Version of the Bible versus all other modern translations such as:

New American Standard Version (NASB), New Living Translation (NLT), English Standard Version (ESV), New International Version (NIV), The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB), and the New King James Version (NKJV), Good News for Modern Man, Revised Standard Version (RSV), The New Living Bible (NLB), English Revised Version (ERV).

All of these modern translations listed above use the corrupted Greek Septuagint for the Old Testament which was drastically altered by a man named Origen in the 2nd Century. Origen was a “Gnostic” which is someone who does not believe that Messiah Yahuwshuwa “is come in the flesh.” Consequently, Origen removed many verses from the original Hebrew Scriptures that gave evidence that Yahuwshuwa Messiah is YaHuWaH in the flesh. 

Evidence below shows that the Greek Septuagint is a Hoax and it does not pre-date our Messiah. The Greek Septuagint did not come into existence until about 250 A.D.

All modern translations also use the corrupted “Revised Greek Text” for the New Testament. The Revised Greek Text was dramatically altered by two men named “Hort & Westcott” in the 1850’s in England. These men were Jesuit Spies who were working for the Vatican and the New World Order Agenda. They were also followers of Madam Blavatsky’s Luciferian Doctrine. 

But the King James Version uses the Hebrew Masoretic Text for the Old Testament and the “Textus Receptus” aka “Received Text” for the New Testament.

*Disclaimer about the King James Bible

I believe that the King James Bible is a superior translation compared to all other modern translations that I have listed above, and I will illustrate in this article the historical reasons why. 

However, I do not advocate using the replacement name of LORD in all caps in place of our Creator’s proper name YHWH in the Hebrew Old Testament. I also do not advocate using the name “God” because it is the name of a Babylonian fortune deity as seen in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance:

Result of search for “baal gawd”:#1171 Ba`al Gad bah’-al gawd from 1168 and 1409; Baal of Fortune; Baal-Gad, a place in Syria:--Baal-gad.

Now having said all of that, I am going to be quoting from the King James Bible and using some of the incorrect vain titles such as “God, LORD, and Jesus Christ” but this is only for the sake of showing a comparison from the King James Bible to the Modern Translations as mentioned above. Aside from the incorrect titles and names that the King James Bible uses, I believe it to be superior to all modern translations and I will soon demonstrate why. In Genesis 49, we read a prophecy about the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) and it goes like this: 

Genesis (Bereshiyth) 49:

Yahuwdah (Judah), thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

Yahuwdah (Judah), is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

10 The sceptre shall not depart from Yahuwdah (Judah), nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

As you will see from the research below at this site, King James was a descendant of King David and he held the scepter to give the Torah (Law) to the people of the Covenant (Briyth) or Brit-ain (which means people of the Covenant).

Is it true that King James named the Bible after himself? No! The King James Bible published in 1611 was called “The Holy Bible” for the first 300 years until other printers began to call it “The King James Bible” in order to supplant the translation with their false corrupted manuscripts.

Many slanderous things have been written about King James that are simply not true. King James was not a homosexual, and he was not a Freemason. The Jesuits in the Vatican hate King James because he rebelled against the Papacy and he spoke out vehemently against the idolatry of Rome. King James was actually a man of YHWH who fasted and prayed for the purest translation for the people of England. 

Not only that, but he wrote many papers and letters appealing to the Pope with scriptures proving that he was a heretic and that he needed to repent. King James specifically wrote a paper against the Catholic Mass and Transubstantiation in defiance against the Pope. And so to this day, there is an Illuminati–Jesuit conspiracy to discredit the King James Version of the Bible. 

In the 1500’s Pope Innocent the 3rd founded an order of Catholic Priests under direction of Ignatius Layola of Spain. The purpose of this order of priests was to be trained espionage spies and their goal was to infiltrate the English Parliament. The Pope wanted to bring England back to the Latin Vulgate corrupted manuscript of the Bible, and ultimately bring England back under the rule of the Papacy, but their plan at that time failed. 

Layola and his Jesuit order were instructed by the Pope to stomp out the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s, and to bring England back under the ruler-ship of the Pope. But the Protestant Reformation was a “protest” against Rome and her many Babylonian pagan practices. The Protestant Reformation was a departure from Mystery Babylon religion, as this was a mighty move of the Holy Spirit in Europe.

Many thousands left the Roman Catholic Institution after the scriptures went into print in the 1500’s starting with Martin Luther who translated the scriptures into German, and for this cause, Jesuits have also written many false things about him. While Martin Luther has been said to have written many things against the Jewish people, I truly believe that the Jesuits have faked many of these documents in order to discredit the Protestant Reformation as a legitimate move of the Holy Spirit. 

The Protestant Reformation was a legitimate move of the Holy Spirit and a departure from the Roman Papacy. I believe that false propaganda about Martin Luther has been written into history books by the Jesuits to make Martin Luther look like a Jew hater and an anti-Semite. I highly suspect that this has all been fabricated by Rome. The Vatican has been angry about the Protestant Reformation since the 1500’s and so they have sought to malign anyone who was instrumental in calling people out of the Great Whore, Mystery Babylon the Great the Mother of Harlots (the Vatican).

After 1,260 years of being in the Dark Ages (as the Popes would burn people at the stake for reading a Bible), King James commissioned 50 Hebrew (Jewish) Scribes to the Holy Land to recover the Hebrew Masoretic Text and they translated that into English for the people of the Covenant (Britain). Everything negative that has been written about Martin Luther and King James is nothing more than Jesuit-Illuminati propaganda meant to discredit the Protestant Reformation and the King James Version of the Bible. 

In the beginning of the Reformation, the Protestants started out Torah observant. They preached against Christmas, Easter, and the paganism of Rome. The Puritans who came to America on the Mayflower were also Sabbath Keepers and they observed biblical dietary laws. 

But not too long after, these early settlers came to America, and that is when the Vatican sent their Jesuit spies to infiltrate through America through Freemasonry. Not only the government, but Jesuit infiltration was in Bible Colleges and in churches. Today the Protestants are not much different from the Catholic Church, and it is all because the Jesuits/Illuminati have thoroughly infiltrated. See below why the Vatican and the Jesuits hate King James:

Below are some good resources that expose the Illuminati Agenda to gradually change the Scriptures to reflect the doctrine of Satan himself. I highly recommend these sources for discovering what the Vatican Agenda is for totally discrediting King James, the Protestant Reformation, and altering the Scriptures:

More resources below reveal the Conspiracy behind the false rumors about King James being a homosexual:

Vee for Vendetta?

For those of you who may remember that movie that came out a few years back with Natalie Portman entitled “V for Vendetta,” that movie was all about the Vatican (what the letter V really stands for) trying to infiltrate the English Parliament to assassinate King James! 

Their plan failed and now the Illuminati are at it again, and that is why they made the movie in order to bring England back under the Vatican and the Vicar of Christ the Pope. The letter V stands for Vatican which means “divining serpent” and it also stand for “Vicar” which means “substitute.” 

Hence the title “Vicar of Christ” in Latin means “Substitute for Christ.”  

The word “Anti” in Greek also means “Substitute.”  Hence the term “Antichrist” means the very same thing as “Vicar of Christ” the official title of a Pope! Natalie Portman is from Yisra’el and in this movie they depict her with her head shaved. 

In scripture, a woman who shaves her head is a temple prostitute as the Apostle Paul explained in 1st Corinthians 11 that it is a “shame for a woman to cut her hair.” The Jewish women in the Nazi war camps during the Holocaust had their heads shaved by the Nazi’s! 

Can you see what the Illuminati are trying to portray in this movie? The Vatican is getting ready to set up headquarters in Yisra’el and to make Yisra’el The Harlot of Revelation 17. They are going to do this by combining Apostate Christianity, Islam & Rabbinic Judaism into one religion, thereby making Jerusalem the end-times harlot of Revelation 18.  The same thing happened in the days of King Ahab and his foreign wife, Jezebel. They defiled the nation of Yisrael with Ba’al worship.

In 1605 a Roman Catholic by the name of Guy Fawkes, under the direction of a Jesuit priest by the name of Henry Garnet, was found in the basement of the English Parliament with thirty-six barrels of gunpowder which he planning to use to blow up King James and the entire Parliament. After killing the king, they planned on imprisoning his children, re-establishing England as a state loyal to the Pope and to kill all who resisted. 

Needless to say, the Authorized English Bible (the KJV) would have been one of the plot’s victims. Fawkes and Garnet and eight other conspirators were caught and hanged. It seems that those who work so hard to discredit the character of King James have a hidden agenda. The Vatican truly does have a Vendetta against the Protestant Reformation and the King James Bible!

The Influence of Sir Francis Bacon & the Rosicrucian’s in the King James Version?

These pagan Rosicrucians and Freemasons led by Sir Francis Bacon had their hands all over the original 1611 King James Bible. They took perfectly good text and added page after page after page of Rosicrucian artwork, some of which tells a hidden story, while others are just symbols. 

These Masonic handshakes are very real, and very telling, for they tell the story that Bacon conspired to produce a Rosicrucian masterpiece when they published this Bible.

Likely, Bacon, and the Knights of the Helmet intended that this KJV would be the perfect compliment to the Shakespearean plays in popularizing the new Elizabethan English with the common people. In the opinion of one Masonic author, Bacon and the Knights of the Helmet considered how to popularize this new English Bible amongst the people, and concluded that two different tools were required:

1) Arts and Entertainment -- Hence the Shakespearean plays;

2) The “Peoples Holy Book” -- hence the King James Version of the Bible

However, Bacon were in for a rude shock, as their new Bible was soundly rejected by the religious leaders of the day. Both Pilgrim and Puritan leaders immediately rejected the KJV, based upon the Satanic symbolism added to the text by Sir Francis Bacon. 

Even Anglican pastors -- who are supposed to take orders from Headquarters without murmur, complaint, or resistance -- rebelled, refusing to take out their beloved Geneva Bibles and put in the King James Bibles, filled with all these Satanic symbols.

In about 1650, another printing run was undertaken, and this time, all these Satanic symbols were taken out. All coding was likewise removed. At this point, the KJV was fine -- it was the Bible we know and love and trust today. Gradually, over the next 100 years, the natural superiority and beauty of Elizabethan English took over and gradually forced the Geneva Bible into obscurity.

The Spirit of Elohiym prevented these Rosicrucians from tinkering with the text, He prevented Bacon from triumphantly popularizing a Rosicrucian Bible, and He preserved His integrity in the minds and hearts of true believers of that time. But, can you now begin to see how Pilgrim leaders so quickly rejected the King James Bible?

Sir Francis Bacon did not write the King James Bible, despite many false claims that have been made by the Jesuits and Illuminati. Research indicates that the official KJV scholarship committee completed their work in 1610 and handed the manuscript to King James. The King then promptly gave that manuscript to Sir Francis Bacon, who possessed it for about one year, until 1611, when he handed the manuscript back to the King, who promptly sent it to his official printer.

Historians have debated why King James felt that Bacon needed this manuscript for one year and what Bacon did with or to the manuscript while he had it for that time. Now, however, we feel confident that Bacon used this time to plan how to coordinate the text with all these symbols -- page after page after page!

At this present time in 2012, I am currently working on an Easy Read, Restored Name 1611 King James Version of the Bible. Below is a sample of this version that I am currently working on:

The Set-Apart Word of YaHuWaH יהוה
Easy Read, Restored Name 1611 King James Version

*Commentary by Maria Merola

I have done my best to preserve the integrity of the 1611 King James (Ya’aqob) Version of the scriptures. I have restored the sacred name of our Heavenly Father as YaHuWaH whenever it has been replaced by the word LORD in all capital letters, and next to it, I have included the Paleo Hebrew pictograph יהוה (yad, hey, waw, hey).

I have also restored the title of “God” to the Hebrew ALuWHiYM with the Paleo Pictographs next to it as well אלוהים. I have also restored the name of the patriarchs to include the Heavenly Father’s name of YaHuW in their names wherever they appear. To make sure that I am using the correct Hebrew spelling of these names, I examine the pictograph and use the letters of the Paleo Hebrew with minimal vowel points added for pronunciation. 

Also, I have restored all of the places in the TaNaK (Law, Prophets & Writings or Old Testament) wherein the Alef & Taw (Hebrew for Alpha & Omega) in pictographs appears in the original Hebrew Text. 

In the original Paleo Hebrew text the pictograph for  ואת (Waw, Aleph, & Taw) appears many times in the TaNaK (Torah, Nabiym & Katubiym) aka Law, Prophets & Writings. but they are not translated into English and thus it is just ignored and left out of the text. This word is ayth in Hebrew. I have highlighted these places in red because it is a picture of Mashiyach (Messiah). It is defined in the Strong’s Concordance as follows:

#853 ‘eth ayth apparent contracted from 226 in the demonstrative sense of entity; properly, self (but generally used to point out more definitely the object of a verb or preposition, even or namely):--(as such unrepresented in English).

These are important because they are a prophetic symbol of our Messiah YaHuW’ShuWA. What do these letters represent? They are pictographs of the Waw (nail), the Alef (Red Heifer), Taw (Cross or Two Sticks). Hence this is a pictograph of the Red Heifer sacrifice being nailed to the Two Sticks or Two Trees as seen in the prophecy of Ezekiel 37:16-19. The two sticks or two trees represent the Two Houses of Yisa’el Ephrayim and YaHuW’dah.

And so by placing these pictographs of the T-A-W back where they belong, we can gain prophetic insight and meaning pertaining to the pre-incarnate existence of the Son of ALuWHiYM as “the one who was, and is and is to come.”

The awkward archaic language has been updated for certain words such as “sitteth, crieth, lieth, remaineth, lovest” etc. Instead, these words have been changed to “sits, cries, lies, remains, loves” etc. Also, words like “ye, thine, thy, thou, thee, art, wast” are changed to “you, your, yours, are, was.” 

I did not make very many changes to the way that the sentences are structured because I don’t want to tamper very much with the King James Version. However certain sentence such as “lovest thou me?” Will read like this “do you love me?” rather than “love you me?”  

Only a few obsolete words were changed from the King James text. I am using the “Easy Read King James” (not to be confused with the corrupted New King James Version). The Easy Read King James is not a different translation from the 1634 King James Version. It has no copyright law attached to it and the only thing updated are the archaic words:

Chapter 1

1 In the beginning ALuWHiYM אלוהים created את(Alef & Taw) the heaven and ואת (Waw, Alef & Taw) the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of ALuWHiYM אלוהים moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And ALuWHiYM אלוהים said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And ALuWHiYM אלוהים saw ואת (Waw, Alef & Taw) the light, that it was good: and ALuWHiYM אלוהים divided the light from the darkness.

Chapter 7

1 And YaHuWaH יהוה said unto Noakh, Come you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

2 Of every clean beast you shall take to you by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

5 And Noakh did according unto all that YaHuWaH יהוה commanded him.

What About the New King James Version?

If you download the chart at the link below, you can see for yourself that the New King James Version is not the same text as the 1611 or 1634 Authorized King James Version. It copies the Jehovah's Witness Watchtower Bible and has many corruptions in it:

Comparing King James Version to the Modern Translations

Here at this website entitled is illustrated by the chart on the next page, the serious alterations made from the original text of the word of our creator.

It is the omission of Sacred Names that has often caused the first doubts over the trustworthiness of the modern translations. Names of Deity are missing, and they are missing frequently! The totals of such omissions in two of the most popular versions (The New American Standard and the New International) are tabulated below. Where these names are in combination, they have been counted separately.

Missing Words:
Total missing names of deity

The NASV & NIV removes the assertion of our Master’s virgin birth in Matthew 1:25 & Luke 2:7:

KJV: “firstborn son.” 
NASV& NIV: “a son.”

The NASV & NIV questions our Messiah’s DIVINE GOODNESS by deleting the word “good” Matthew 19:16- 17, in both versions they change Messiah’s question from “why do you call me good?” to “why do you ask me about what is good?” When Yahuwshuwa says “there is none good but one” he goes on to identify that the only one who is good is Elohiym (God), yet the NIV and the NASV leave the word “God” out:


16 Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” 

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.”


16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

NASV omits the salvation exclusive to faith in Messiah, in John 6:47:

KJV: “He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life.” 
NASV: “He who believes has everlasting life.”

This text in the NASV effectively opens the door of salvation to anyone who believes anything.

NASV: questions Messiah’s Divine SONSHIP in John 6:69:

KJV: “Christ, the Son of the living God. 

NASV: “the Holy One of God.

NASV: eliminates Christ’s title “Son of God” in John 9:35:

KJV: “Son of God” 

NASV: “Son of Man”

The NASV removes the title of “Lord” in 1st Corinthians 15:47 referring to Jesus Christ:

KJV: “…. the second man is the Lord from heaven.”  

NASV: “... the second man is from heaven.”

The NASV dilutes the doctrine of the INSPIRATION of Scripture in the margin of 2nd Timothy 3:16:

KJV: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” 

NASV: (in margin) “Every Scripture inspired by God is profitable.”

This NASV marginal note means that not all scripture is inspired by Elohiym. (This implies that only those scriptures “inspired by God” are profitable not ALL scripture.)

The NASV omits reference to our Messiah’s ascension in Luke 24:51:

KJV: “And it came to pass...He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.” 

NASV: “And it came about...He parted from them.”

The NASV omits “carried up into heaven,” thus removing a reference to our Messiah’s miraculous bodily ascension into heaven.

Below is more damning evidence against the “New International Version.

There are now over 100 different Bible Translations in the English language. Choosing a Bible from this large number raises several questions in the minds of many Yah-fearing followers of Messiah. Are all these Bibles the inspired Word of YHWH? If they are, why are they all different? If all of them are not Yah’s Word, which one is? How can I identify the word of Yah? If we fear YaHuWaH, then it makes good sense to see what he has to say about His Word. The first thing we observe is that Elohiym promised to preserve both His WORD and WORDS:

Yah’s Word endureth for ever” 1st Peter 1:25

My words shall not pass away” Luke 21:33

Thou shalt preserve them” Psalms 12:6-7

(See also Ps. 119:152,160; and Isa. 30:8; 59:21)

Did Elohiym keep His promises? We should, like Abraham when Elohiym promised that Sarah would have a son, ignore natural concerns and believe that Yah is able to perform His promises (Romans 4:19-21). Believing Yah’s promises by faith, we can be fully persuaded, with evidence, that Yah has surely preserved His Word and words (Hebrews 11:1).

YaHuW’shuwa believed the promises of Yah. He said, “Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law” (Matthew 5:18). And He further taught the scriptures were word perfect when He said, The scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35).

Elohiym further promised His preserved words would have certain characteristics. These Yah-given features were to provide the criteria by which all Bibles could be judged.

“Every word of Elohiym is pure” Proverbs 30:5.

They are not froward or perverse” Proverbs 8:8.

No lie is of the truth” 1st John 2:21.

(See also Ps. 19:7-9; Luke 4:4; 16:17; John 10:35).

When tried by these criteria, modern Bibles condemn themselves. Thank YaHuWaH for giving us wisdom and light to determine His infallible words from the words of men.

Since YaHuWaH Elohiym said that his preserved words are pure, with nothing froward or perverse in them, and cannot be broken; it is our duty to judge each Bible by these standards. Now we must answer a question raised earlier, “Why do these versions make such obvious errors?” Scripture answers it this way: “He taketh the wise in their own craftiness” (Job 5:12-14). 

Our Elohiym is supremely jealous for His Word, which He has magnified above His name (Psalms 138:2), and will confound man’s efforts to corrupt it. “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise.... Where is the wise? where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not Elohiym made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

This review shows clearly the flagrant changes made to the words of Elohiym by modern “scribes” and “disputers.” Historical events are denied, cross-references are destroyed, doctrine is perverted, and Yah’s promises of preservation are rejected. As a result, in spite of 100 different Bibles being available today, many do not have the words of Elohiym. Peter considered his scriptures more sure than the voice of Yah from heaven (2nd Peter 1:16-21). We have this more sure Word in the English language in the Yah-approved, fruit-bearing, and enduring King James Version.

Upon seeing these charts above, it is no wonder that YaHuWshuwa Messiah said in Mark 4:15, in the parable of the sower that “Satan cometh immediately and taketh away the word.”

Bible Versions that Undermine the Deity of Messiah: An Easy Litmus Test

When examining a Bible, the first verse that I look at is Daniel 3:25, and I can tell right off the bat if the translator used the Greek Septuagint or the Hebrew Masoretic Text. As you can see from the comparisons below, the King James Version and the Old Jewish Bible both use the correct wording from the Hebrew Masoretic Text (Bar Elah) or “Son of Elohiym” (God) which clearly reveals that it was the pre-incarnate Messiah who was in the furnace as this fourth person with the three Hebrews:

Daniel 3:25 (King James Version)

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 (Old Jewish Bible)

He answered and said, Lo, I see anashim arba’ah (four men) free (not bound, loose), walking in the midst of the eish (fire), and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Bar Elohin (Ben Elohim, Hebrew).

Now let’s examine the translations that use the Greek Septuagint below. All of these versions imply that the 4th person in the furnace with the three Hebrews was “one of the gods” or “a son of the gods” and it has removed any implication that this was the “Son of Elohiym” (God) or the pre-incarnate Messiah!

Daniel 3:25 (Complete Jewish Bible)

But he exclaimed, “Look! I see four men, not tied up, walking around there in the flames, unhurt; and the fourth looks like one of the gods!”

Daniel 3:25 (NIV)

He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”

Daniel 3:25 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire [a]without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”

Son of the Morning or Morning Star?

In Isaiah 14:12, in the original Hebrew text it does not say that the one who fell from heaven was “the morning star.” That title is reserved for our Messiah YaHuW’shuwa alone!

Revelation 22:16 I Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Satan wants to be the bright and morning star! He wants to be the “sun of righteousness.

Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

It is for this reason that he has masqueraded himself as “the pagan sun-god” of many pagan religions! Satan has tricked people into worshiping the created object of “the sun” rather than the creator (Yahuwshuwa Messiah) who created all things according to Colossians 1:16 & Ephesians 3:9. 

We are commanded not to worship the “creature” but rather the Creator (Romans 1:25). The King James Version and the Old Jewish Bible clearly show what the original Hebrew text says in Isaiah 14:12:

Isaiah 14:12 (King James Version)

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 

Isaiah 14:12 (Old Jewish Bible)

How art thou fallen from Shomayim, O Heilel Ben Shachar (Bright One of the Dawn, Day Star, Lucifer)! How art thou cast down to the earth, thou, which hast laid low the Goyim!

The Strong’s Concordance translates the word Lucifer as “Heylel” which means “shining one.” The word “morning” in Hebrew is “Shachar.”

#1966 Heylel (Lucifer) = “light-bearer” shining one, Lucifer; of the king of Babylon and Satan (fig.); ‘Helel’ describing the king of Babylon.

#7837 shachar shakh’-ar from 7836; dawn (literal, figurative or adverbial):--day(-spring), early, light, morning, whence riseth.

The Hebrew text calls him “the son of the morning” which in Hebrew is “Heyel Ben Shachar.”

But the Greek Septuagint translates this as if it says in Hebrew: “Boker Kokab” (morning star) rather than “son of the morning.”

What is the difference? The Morning Star is the Messiah who created all things. He represents the brightest star in our solar system (the sun). Satan of course wants to mimic him by portraying himself as the “brightest star” in the solar system. 

But the “son” of the morning is a term that means that Lucifer (Satan) was merely a created being and that he was created by the Messiah who is the “bright and morning star.” Gnosticism uses this verse in Isaiah 14:12 in order to assimilate our Messiah Yahuwshuwa (Jesus Christ) to Lucifer by purporting that they are one and the same being!

Isaiah 14:12 (NIV)

How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

Isaiah 14:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!

Now let’s examine Exodus 6 in three different versions below. While we know that the name JEHOVAH is not the correct way to say the name of our Creator (since there was no letter V or J in Ancient Hebrew), we know that it is pronounced as YAHUWAH. But at least the King James Translators made an attempt at following the Hebrew Masoretic Text by using the proper name, but the NIV & NASB removed the proper name and implies that his proper name is “LORD.”

Exodus 6: (King James Version)

1 Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.

2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:

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.

Exodus 6: (Complete Jewish Bible)

1 ADONAI said to Moshe, “Now you will see what I am going to do to Pharaoh. With a mighty hand he will send them off; with force he will drive them from the land!” 

2 God spoke to Moshe; he said to him, “I am ADONAI. 

3 I appeared to Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov as El Shaddai, although I did not make myself known to them by my name, Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh [ADONAI].” 

Exodus 6: (NIV & NASB)

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh: Because of my mighty hand he will let them go; because of my mighty hand he will drive them out of his country.”

2 God also said to Moses, “I am the LORD.

3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD I did not make myself fully known to them.

Now let’s make a comparison with all modern translations of 1st John 4:3 to the King James Version below. 

You will notice that the “Textus Receptus” (the text that the KJV uses for the New Testament) says that the criteria for identifying the Spirit of Anti-Messiah is one who denies that our Messiah Yahuwshuwa “is come in the flesh.” In other words he was not merely a reincarnation of all the other pagan deities as the Gnostics preach. 

Gnosticism purports that he did not physically die on the cross and he did not resurrect. They claim that he came not in a human mortal body but as a “Spirit” that overshadowed many other “ascended masters” in the past such as Apollo, Krishna, Buddha, Bacchus, Nimrod, Tammuz, Zeus, Hercules, Horus, etc. 

Consequently, Origen of Alexandria deliberately removed this verse from the Antiochian text of the New Testament in the 2nd Century, and he changed the verse to read “every spirit who does not acknowledge Jesus.” 

Well this is NOT very much of a criterion! Even the devil acknowledges the existence of the Messiah! (James 2:19). Now when making a comparison, we can easily see which versions use the text that Origen tampered with and which versions use the Textus Receptus:

1st John 4:3 (King James Version)

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1st John 4:3 (The Scriptures Version 1998)

And every spirit that does not confess that יהושע Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the anti-messiah which you heard is coming, and now is already in the world.

*Note: There is a difference between the past tense “has come in the flesh” (which is how the Scriptures Version renders this verse) and the present tense “is come in the flesh” in the King James Version. Our Messiah has come in the flesh in the past, but he will also return in the flesh in the future with a resurrected body! This is very important!

1st John 4:3 (Complete Jewish Bible)

And every spirit which does not acknowledge Yeshua is not from God - in fact, this is the spirit of the Anti-Messiah.

1st John 4:3 (NIV)

But every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

1st John 4:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

And every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

1st John 5:7: Interpolation or Removed by the Gnostic Origen?

Now one more comparison that I would like to make that I believe will help you in your search for a complete Bible. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Andrew Gabriel Roth and I highly recommend the AENT (Aramaic English New Testament) that he meticulously worked on. 

I own a copy and I find it absolutely invaluable to my studies and research. The study notes that he includes and the footnotes are a treasure of knowledge and wisdom. But I strongly disagree with him about the fact that 1st John 5:7 was “added into the text” by the King James translators. 

It is a well-documented fact that Origen of Alexandria removed 1st John 5:7 from the Greek Textus Receptus from Antioch because he did not believe in the deity of our Messiah! Andrew Roth and others who believe this verse was “added” seem to think that this verse supports the erroneous belief of Trinitarianism (the belief that our Creator is three separate persons). However, a closer examination of this verse, reveals that it actually supports just the opposite! 

1st John 5:7 supports the “Oneness Doctrine” of YaHuWaH Elohiym! When it states that “these three are one” it is not stating that they are “three separate persons.” But rather, YaHuWaH Elohiym is only “one person” (Hebrews 1:3) and he has three manifestations as “Father, Son & Holy Spirit.” 

It is no different than me saying that “I, Maria Merola am only one person, yet I am a mother, a daughter and a sister” all at the same time!

Why is this verse so important? Because the removal of this verse has led to three erroneous doctrines:

1.)  Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) is a “lesser god” than the Heavenly Father.

2.)  Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) is not deity or Elohiym (God) in the flesh at all     (Jehovah’s Witnesses teach this).

3.)  Yahuwshuwa (Jesus) is one of “many gods” (Mormons teach this).

All three of the above doctrines are false!

1st John 5:7 has been removed from all modern translations such as NIV, NASB, Complete Jewish Bible. Even “The Scriptures Version 1998” has removed this verse! It becomes apparent that 1st John 5:7 was removed when you read the entire chapter in context. 

Let’s examine how the other verses go together in the King James Version:

1st John 5:8

5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

What we see here is that the “witness of Elohiym” (God) is greater than the witness of men. The three witnesses who testify in heaven are:

1.)  The Heavenly Father.

2.)  The Word who became flesh (the Messiah).

3.)  The Holy Spirit (the Spirit of YaHuWaH).

This verse is not implying that these three witnesses are three separate persons. In fact, it is saying just the opposite! It is telling us that YaHuWaH Elohiym has manifested himself in three ways to correspond to the “three witnesses” here on earth:

1.)  The Holy Spirit

2.)  The Living Water (symbolic of the word)

3.)  The Blood of Messiah (the Father’s blood was in the Son).

Hence, the three earthly witnesses testify of the three heavenly witnesses! The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of YaHuWaH seen in “seven attributes” or “seven spirits of YHWH” (Revelation 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, 5:6, Isaiah 11:2-3).

The Water is the “Living Water” who is Messiah himself! He called himself “the living water” in John 4:10-11. The Apostle Sha’ul (Paul) also said that the Messiah “sanctifies his bride” by “the washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26). 

Since he is also that WORD who became flesh (John 1:1), then it stands to reason that he is also “the water” that cleanses us from the filthiness of the world. We can see this in the shadow picture of the “bronze laver” in the Tabernacle of Moses (Exodus 30:18). 

The Levites examined themselves in the reflection of the water (like a mirror) and the word of Elohiym is also likened unto a “mirror” where we allow the word to examine us as we compare ourselves to the “perfect law of liberty”(James 1:25).

Finally, we know that the Messiah’s blood was perfect and sinless, otherwise he could not have been the perfect blood atonement for sins!

Zechariah 12:10 reveals to us that the Father himself and the Son were both pierced on the cross:

And I will pour upon the house of Dawiyd (David), and upon the inhabitants of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon את (Alef & Taw) ME whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for HIM, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

You will notice that the ME & HIM are the same person who was pierced!

You will notice that the end-time prophecy about the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) in the last days shows that Alef & Taw (the first and the last) is present. 

It is YHWH himself who was pierced and it says that the House of Yahuwdah will look upon ME (the Alef & Taw) and they will mourn for HIM. YaHuWaH himself was pierced for us!

Yahuwshuwa is YaHuWaH Elohiym manifested in the flesh!!!

The illustration above shows that YaHuWaH is the same “Alef & Taw” (the Alpha & Omega) seen in Revelation 1:8, 1:11, 21:6, 22:13. This is a symbol for the “Red Heifer, nailed to the Two Sticks!”

It shows that YaHuWaH (the Father) is the Alef & Taw and he manifests himself as “the Son” who was pierced for us when he came to earth and became flesh!

In support of Andrew Gabriel Roth’s AENT, I must say that I really love it that he brings out the fact that 1st Corinthians 12 in the Aramaic Peshitta proves that our Messiah Yahuwshuwa is YaHuWaH come in the flesh.

The Aramaic Peshitta Reveals YaHuW’shuwa as YaHuWaH

1st Corinthians 12:3 (KJV) Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of Elohim calls Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1st Corinthians 12:3 (Aramic Peshitta) Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of Elohiym says YaHuW’shuwa is a curse, and no one is able to say that Yahuwshuwa is Master YHWH except by the Ruach ha'Kodesh (Holy Spirit).

One problem that we have with the Greek text, which most of us get our English translations from is that the word “kurios” for “Lord” does not give us the distinction of the word LORD in all capital letters as YaHuWaH or if it is the word Lord in upper and lower case as “master” or Adonai.

#2962. kurios koo’-ree-os from kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Master (as a respectful title):-- God, Lord, master, Sir.

In the Aramaic Peshitta it is easy to know when YHWH is intended because it is MarYah which means “Master Yah” or shortened for Master YHWH.

Yahuwshuwa is YaHuWaH revealed in the Flesh!

Here are some verses which plainly teach that Yahuwshuwa is YaHuWaH, as found in the Aramaic Peshitta:

Actually there is plenty of proof that Yahuwshuwa is called YAHuWaH (MarYah) in Aramaic.

Thomas saying in John’s Gospel, “Mari wElahi”, or My Master and my El (My Lord and my God).

Luke 2:11 Because there was born to you today in the city of David a Saviour, who is Messiah, MarYah (Master YHWH).

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Yisrael know for certain that Elohiym has made this YaHuW’shuwa, whom you impaled, both MarYah (Master YHWH) and Messiah.

Bibles that I recommend

There are other Hebraic Roots Versions that I want to recommend even though I am still partial to the King James Version. 

The most important thing to look for in a Bible is to first make sure that the translation comes from Masoretic Hebrew Text for the “Old Testament” writings (TaNaKh). One way to tell is by looking at the verses that I mentioned above (Daniel 3:25 & Isaiah 14:12). 

Secondly look to see if the New Testament portion is translated from either the Aramaic Peshitta and/or the Textus Receptus.

If the translation you are looking to purchase uses the Greek Septuagint for the Old Testament and the Revised Greek Text for the New Testament, then it is taken from a corrupted text. Is the King James Version the only version that uses the right text? 

There are other Hebraic Root’s translations of the Bible that I recommend that use the Hebrew Old Testament rather than the corrupted Greek Septuagint. What are these translations? 

1.) I like the AENT “Aramaic English New Testament” by Andrew Gabriel Roth for proving the deity of our Messiah, by leaving intact the proper name of YaHuWaH in the New Testament scriptures instead of the generic and ambiguous title “Lord” (kurios in Greek). 

The AENTalso leaves 1st John 4:3 intact as does the KJV. I also like the AENT for the way that Andrew Roth he clears up much of the confusion surrounding the Apostle Sha’ul (Paul’s) letters and the many historical references that he provides.

2.) I also like “The Besorah of Yahusha,” because it also matches the Hebrew Masoretic Text in scriptures like Daniel 3:25 & Isaiah 14:12. It also keeps 1st John 4:3 intact like the KJV does, although it also removes 1st John 5:7.  

3.) I also like the “HalleluYah Scriptures” which also uses the Hebrew Masoretic Text for scriptures like Daniel 3:25 & Isaiah 14:12, and it matches the Textus Receptus in scriptures like 1st John 4:3. Although the HalleluYah Scriptures also removes 1st John 5:7 as well.

4.) I also would like to recommend “The Hebraic Roots Version Revised Edition” by James Trimm. This version is also excellent for historic references and additional educational footnotes. James Trimm also uses the Hebrew Masoretic Text and matches Daniel 3:25 & Isaiah 14:12 as does the KJV. The Hebraic Roots Version also leaves 1st John 4:3 intact as does the KJV but it also removes 1st John 5:7 

5.) The Scriptures Version 1998 also matches the Hebrew Masoretic Text in verses like Daniel 3:25 & Isaiah 14:12. It also leaves 1st John 4:3 intact like the King James Version, but it also removes 1st John 5:7.
