Asbestos. Radon. These and other toxins are real concern. But Christians need to realize that spiritual poisons are far more toxic to us then mere physical ones. Fortunately, many Believers know this, and keep wicked things like Ouija Boards, occult books, or cult “scriptures” like the Book of Mormon out of their homes (Deut. 7:26).

But we must never forget that Satan is subtle (Gen. 3:1). He knows that many Christians who would never dream of keeping occult books might be deceived by something else I their homes which appears Christian, and is never even questioned.

Many innocent Christians have unwittingly allowed “cursed things” in their homes. Thus, they allow an anti-Christ spirit into their environment!

But how?

Remember that ‘anti’- (in Greek) can mean two things : 1) that which opposes , OR

2) a substitute.
Contrary to Hollywood, the anti-Christ is not going to be an ogre who will make Hitler look like Mr. Rogers. No, the anti-Christ will be the most perfect counterfeit for Jesus yet seen on the earth. He will be the most “godly” man on earth – a great ecumenical leader.

The DANGER of a counterfeit is that it is 98% perfect! Remember, rat poison is 98% good food, otherwise the rats would not bother with it. This is why the Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses are so good at recruiting Christians. It is because they look so real. Only careful Bible study can reveal the flaw!

Christians should avoid anything that has an anti-Christ spirit. All cults partake of that spirit, because they commit one of four sins:

1) Denying that Jesus Christ is come in flesh (1Jn. 4:3);
2) Denying HE is the Christ (1Jn. 2:22);
3) Denying that Jesus is truly the Son of God (1Jn. 2:23);
4) Deceiving the faithful (2Jn.7).

The devil has his “anti-churches”, the cults. He ALSO has an “anti-Bible”! Paul warns:

For if he that cometh preacheth ANOTHER Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive ANOTHER spirit, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.-2Cor.11:4 [emphasis added]

Cults offer counterfeits of Jesus, His church, his gospel, His gifts.

What are We Doing Wrong?

If one commits any of these sins (especially more than one) and refuses to repent, he is at least flirting with the anti-Christ spirit. This is true even if he is a great “man of God”. Remember, salvation or a seminary degree is not guarantee against fleshly deception.

David was an adulterer and murderer (2Sam. 11:4, 15-17). Moses was a killer (Ex. 2:12) who disobeyed God (Num. 20:10-11), and Abraham lied (Gen. 2:12-13). Peter denied Christ (Mt. 26:74-75)! Yet all of these men did great things for god. Their sins do not deny their greatness, they only warn us that even “holy men” can sin.

What could be so subtle, that some of our mightiest “men of God” have been fooled? What is this “cursed thing” which may be lurking in your home; carrying with it the spirit of anti-Christ? It may be sitting where you least expect it – on your FAMILY ALTAR! Let’s investigate.

Many know the errors in the Witnesses’ Translation. But how about “scriptures” that deny the Virgin Birth (see Point #3 above)?

“the child’s [Jesus] father and mother marvelled at what was said about him”.

COMPARE:

Luke 2:33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Who was Jesus’ father? Note, this is not dialog being spoken by Mary as in vs. 48. this is the Holy Spirit narrating the incident! Would the Holy Spirit contradict Himself (see Mt. 1:18) and call Joseph Jesus’ father?

How about another verse from the same “scriptures” that casts doubt on Jesus being the son of God?

“Indeed, Herod and Pontius Pilate met together… to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed”.

COMPARE:

Acts 4:27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed…

“Child” clearly declares Jesus’ true nature. All believers are God’s servants, so calling Jesus God’s servant proves nothing.

How about “scriptures” that throw out the clearest verse in the Bible on the Trinity?

(1Jn. 5:7) Check it out! Does YOUR Bible have this verse?

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

How about removing the blood of Jesus? “…in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

COMPARE:

Col. 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

How about “scriptures” that avoid confessing that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh? (Point#1 above)

“ He appeared in a body , was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations…”

COMPARE:

1 Tim. 3:16 …God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles…

How about removing a KEY reference to Jesus being Christ (see Point#2 above)?
“Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name claiming , ‘I am he’, and will deceive many.”

COMPARE:

Mark 13:5-6 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

The same “scriptures” labor mighty to remove the title “Christ” from more than a dozen other verses: Acts 9:20, 15:11, 16:31,19:4;Rom. 1;16, 1Cor.

5;4, 9;1, 2Cor. 11;31; Phil. 4:13, 1Thess. 3”11, 2Thess. 1;8, 1:12; Heb. 3:1,

1John 1:7; Rev. 1:9;12:17. Space does not permit quotations here, but please check these out on your own! See if what we say is true!

Finally, how about “scriptures” that attack the very verse (1Jn. 4:2) which gives the criteria for discerning an anti-Christ!

“Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God…”

Jesus Christ IS STILL in the flesh , is HE not?

This past tense casts doubt! Remember, every man who ever lived “has come in the flesh.” This proves nothing about Jesus’ resurrection! To deny that is to deny the resurrection! Thus, we see that three of the four criteria of the antichrist are being met in these “scriptures”. That should be an item of grave concern!

What’s Going On?

Perhaps you wonder that strange “scriptures” we are Quoting? It is the “bible” version drawn from the same corrupt manuscripts (mss.) as the New World Translation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

It is the “bible” translated by men who deny that we can hold the perfect, inerrant Word of God in our hands. It is also one of the best-selling “bibles”, the New International Version (NIV).The same criticism can be applied to every other modern “version” on the market today, the NAS, Living Bible and even – to a lesser degree – the “New King James

Bible” (which is no such thing!)

All of these versions attack key doctrines, and remove Lucifer from the Bible (Is. 14:12)! They remove the command to “study” the Bible and “rightly divide” it (2Tim. 2:15)!

The scholars who have created these translations believe that we no longer have a perfect Bible. They teach that the Bible was perfect ONLY in the ORIGINAL autographs the Greek and Hebrew mss.1 Of course, those

original mss (academic abbreviation for manuscripts) are conveniently lost. Instead, we must rely on the scholars’ opinion. We no longer have God’s words infallibly set down. We just have translations that scholars claim are pretty accurate.

This robs Christians of their right to read the true Bible. Consequently, it robs them of their power, their authority and their faith!

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.- Rom. 10:17
…What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. – Luke 4:36

Only through the words which Jesus has given us can we be clean (John 15:4, Eph. 5:26) This doctrine takes from us the very words of God! Jesus taught that we live by “every word of God.” (Luke 4:4) Obviously, HE thought God’s words were important enough to be preserved intact:

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. – Luke 21:33
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. – Matt. 5:18

The Lord promised us that all of His words would be preserved, right down to the tiniest stroke of a letter, and that they would be nigh at hand to benefit us. (Dt. 30:11-14) Now, any scholar who says that we have no perfect Bible except in the nonexistent “original” is disagreeing with Jesus. Are you going to trust a Christian scholar, or Jesus Christ?

What Must I Do?

You can choose between modern versions which partake of an anti-Christ spirit and which remove hundreds of words from the Bible…

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… – Rev. 22:19

…OR you can choose the proven (1Sam. 17:39Authorized Version (AV), known as the King James Bible.

Think of all the mighty revivals that were preached under the AV Bible! Spurgeon, Finney, Moody and others ALL used the AV and entire cities were saved under their ministries! Taverns and brothels were shut down by the dozens. Brothers and sisters, we do not see revivals like that anymore in our day and now you know the reason why!

We have found, in our ministry, that only the AV has the authority and power to stand against Satan and cut through to the truth (Heb. 4:12). That is why many scholars attack it!

Years ago, most Christians believed the AV was THE Word of God in English. Since then, a massive marketing campaign has been unleashed to convince pastors, teachers and lay-people that they need “better” and “easier-to-read” bibles> based on “the latest manuscript evidence”.

“Woe to Them that Go Down to Egypt for Help…”

Sadly, what you are NOT told is that these claims are based on lines about mss. which are incredibly foul and corrupt. These “older, better” mss. Come from Egypt, the Biblical symbol of idolatry and apostasy (Isa. 19:3; 30:2-3; 31:1; Heb. 11:26; Rev. 11:8)

Would you trust texts from Egypt that attacked the Virgin Birth and Christ’s deity? OR would you trust a Bible based on mss. from Antioch (Acts 11:26) – a bible which was at the heart of the greatest move of God in the last 1000 years – the “great Awakening?”

In trusting the AV, we depend upon humility of hear, openness of mind, and security in seeking God’s truth. We trust that the Spirit Who was sent

to lead us unto all truth did not desert the church after the ink was dry on the “originals”, and that He is still present in power, having preserved His words where we can read them, believe them, and obey them.

God has placed a burden on us to share the power and purity of the Authorized Version with the Body of Christ. Today’s church is being seduced by slick mullion dollar ad campaigns into buying “bibles” which are full of leaven (doctrinal error – Matt. 16:12).

If you have Bible with even one error in it, then it isn’t a true Bible. “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (Gal. 5:9) God does all things well (Mark 7:37)! He has promised to preserve His word forever (Ps. 12:6-7; 1Pet. 1:25)! If there is one false doctrine in your “bible”, the entire book is leavened.

Butter knife of Sword?

The “Sword of the Spirit”, the Holy Bible (Eph.16:17) is our only offensive weapon. If you are using a “bible’ with errors, you are fighting Satan with a butter knife! These versions are designed to de-claw Christians and churches, so that the devil can run right over them like a steam roller. Don’t be seduced! Accept no imitations!

There is not space in this tract to explain ALL the reasons why we believe that the Authorized Version is the only true Bible for English-speaking people today, OR why the NIV, NAS. Etc. are dangerous frauds. If this has given you concern about the Bible you are using in your home, contact us for free information , which will prove conclusively that this warning, is true. These “bibles” lurking in your home are a deadly deception!
