Are Things that are Different the Same?

A study by Danny Bunn, B.A (a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.)

Welcome to the Power Hour
         Keep in mind the old saying, "You can fool all of the people some of the time, you can fool some of the people all the time BUT you cannot fool all the people all the time.
NOW I want to do a few comparisons to see if different things are the same… Here we have a banana peel and a slipper.
Are they the same?
I almost slipped on a banana peel. Oops! It was almost a slipper but not quite.
But then again, a slipper, you don't normally slip on but then you do slip it on. Oh well!

         NOW it gets tougher, next we have an apple and an orange.
Are they the same?
Right they are both fruit so they are the same in that way.
But most of you will agree that they are not the same kind of fruit…
Okay that was kinda tricky on some of you out there. Right???

         The final comparison for NOW… We have two bibles. Are they the same?
Most will say "Holy Bible" on the front of them or the edge, both of them say "KJV" even though one has an "N" in front of the letters KJV…
The look the same, both have about the same color,
I have flipped inside of both and they have pages that say Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, etc all the way to Revelation. 39 in the Old and 27 in the New. Same here.
Many bible scholars, teachers, preachers say they are the same or so close it is hard to tell the difference or they are minor differences.
This question is a tougher one that the first two comparisons… Are these two books the same?

II Tim 2:15 in the KJV says,
"15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
         That verse gives me a good way to find out if these two books are the same.
II Tim 2:15 in the NKJV says,
"15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God a worker who does not need to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of."
         WELL, it starts off spooky. I am to be "diligent" in the NKJV which could mean all kinds of things and study could be included but not necessarily. Well, let's give it another chance. This looks like they are corrupting the word of God to me.
         I remember that there is a verse in the bible that talks about corrupting the word of God.

II Corinth 2:17 (KJV)
"17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
         So I see from this that being sincere is not enough. We are to be sincere in God/Christ to be right on.
So what does this say in the NKJV?

II Corinth 2:17 (NKJV)
"17 For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ."
Peddling means " (Verb)
1. Try to sell (something, esp. small goods) by going from house to house or place to place.
2. Sell (an illegal drug or stolen item).

         WOW, this is getting more and more weird as I proceed…Corrupt and peddle are not the same word or meaning…
I know that they were NOT selling the word of God back then, they were dying for it, even though this verse condemns the Christian bookstores since they are selling the perversions and the true word of God but I ALSO KNOW that there were men corrupting it even back when it was being written as Paul says in,

II Cor 11:3,4
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 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.
         So Paul is telling me here that people can receive another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel. Strange!
Let's keep going…I am thinking the gospel leads us in the straight and narrow way of life.

Matthew 7:14
KJV - " 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.."
NKJV - "14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
         We can say that the way is strait and narrow since the truth is straight and narrow BUT it is NOT narrow AND difficult.
Jesus Christ said in...

Matt 11:28-30 KJV (KJV)
"28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
         So another Jesus, spirit, and another gospel would be a works salvation, a works gospel by our own strength and abilities would be difficult, very difficult. The true Jesus will give the strength, the power, the desire to do what is needed to do, hence easy as we walk in his Spirit.
         Most of these changes will line up with all the new perversions, I already see that the NKJV is not a KJV and the errors, doctrines are not "new" they are old mistakes, contradictions, errors from some old manuscript evidence in the Greek and the Hebrew but it is the wrong manuscript evidence being used for the new perversions such as "NEW"- NIV, Nasb, Nkjv, etc.
God makes it so easy that a little child can't err in the way of salvation. Jesus Christ said,

Matt 19:13-15 (KJV)
"13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence."

Matt 18:2-4(KJV)
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Here is another reason why the way is narrow and few find it, not because it is hard BUT because of pride, arrogance, loving evil and the like. We must humble ourselves before the Almighty God of the universe and then he will accept us as we turn to him in faith and repentance.

         I remember that Thomas Nelson Publishers said they are just getting rid of the archaic words in the KJV.
Matthew 16:18
KJV: "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
NKJV: "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it."
         See how much clearer the NKJV is. They got rid of that archaic word, "hell" and replaced it with a much clearer word, "hades", an untranslated word, so to speak.
Luke 16:23
KJV: "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom."
NKJV: "And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom."

         I shared 1 Cor 15:55 with you when I was dealing with the NIV since it does the same thing. I was reading that most of the bible scholars do not believe in hell so they don't translate hades, sheol, and the like. It makes it harder for the average person to know what is what many times in the new bibles.
1 Cor 15:55
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

Paul is showing in this verse that death and the grave will not hold God's people. NOW watch how much clearer they make it in the NKJV by not translating the word, hades here.
I Cor 15:55
55 "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?"
         See how much clearer they are getting it for us??? They got rid of the archaic word, grave and put a much clearer word, hades in place of it. Everybody knows what hades means???
         I will make a couple of comments here. Hades is translated hell and/or the grave in the KJV bible based on context, both are places of the dead, it can be the place of the body in death which is the grave or the place of the spirit man in death which is hell if they do NOT know God.
         I also know that the NKJV has more Christians deceived because it leaves some verses that the rest of the new bibles change such as Isa 14:12 OR Romans 1:16 and others but for time sake I won't deal with them here. The NKJV doesn't change the word of God in many places that the new bibles do BUT it did not do what it claimed it was doing, that is getting rid of the archaic words, it took some out and other words that were not archaic it made archaic. There is a rule with the copyright law, they much have thousands of changes to have a new work to deserve a copyright and they are not about to do it without one, it the money honey… Most of the places where it changes words, it lines up with the other perversions such as the NASB, the NIV, the TEV, Living, message, etc.

The NKJV changes the name of God of the Old Testament to Yahweh. His name is not Yahweh, his name is Yehovah in the Hebrew and it changes to Jehovah in the English. I will get a lot deeper into that at a later time hopefully. You can check all kinds of commentaries, dictionaries, reference books, study guides in the 1800's and later and nobody knew Yahweh that I know of. Jehovah is all though the Christian books back then.

This is from a study I did not do, what they said agreed with other pages that I have read…So I included it.
The NKJV removes the word "Lord" 66 times!
The NKJV removes the word God 51 times!
The NKJV removes the word "heaven" 50 times!
In just the New Testament alone the NKJV removes 2,289 words from the KJV! The NKJV makes over 100,000 word changes!

In closing…
(Show the NKJV symbol)
The NKJV logo is the ancient symbol for the pagan trinity, not the Christian Trinity. Use of number symbols can be traced back to Pythagoras (582 B.C.) initiate into the Egyptian mysteries. The symbol was popularized again by satanist Aleister Crowley for the Royal Arch (Lucifer) of the 3rd Degree of the York Order of Masonry. They symbol's shape is duplicated as three initiates join arms and feet, while repeating the names of ancient pagan trinity. The NKJV's symbol can be seen on satanic rock group albums like Led Zeppelin, as well as on new Age bestsellers like the Aquarian Conspiracy.

In the Mason religion:
Jah (short form of Jehovah) Bel (Baal is one false god that the Israelites turned to at times) On (a false Egyptian god)
Jah Bel On
Mah Hah Bone

The above gods are false gods and they did tie the true God Jehovah in with first false god since a shortened form of his name is JAH which is short for Jehovah.
