“...If Any Man Shall Take Away From the Words of the Book...”

 Pastor John Reaves, Sr.

Revelation 22:19 gives strong warning concerning those that take away from God’s word, “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.” And yet today all modern versions of the Bible take away.


The most popular, The New International Version, is one of the worst. Most are not aware that the N.I.V. has completely taken away 17 verses, including Mat. 18:11, “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.” Others have been taken away by footnotes.


Our Lord’s reply to the devil’s temptation in Mat. 4:4 says, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” How can we live by every word if the N.I.V. has taken away 64,576 of them? And it has.


That is equivalent to ripping out over 30 books of the Bible. Of course the N.I.V. is not the word of God; it is the devil’s counterfeit. How do I know that? Check out Isaiah 14:12 in the N.I.V. it calls Lucifer the “morning star”.


In the true word of God, the K.J.V., Rev. 22:16 says, “I 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.”


Jesus said in Mat. 24:35, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away,” and every word of God can be found in the K.J.V. 1611, and in no other. You check it out.



Note: Some of the Bible versions listed change from year to year. At the printing of this tract the verses were checked to be sure they were as said. Please realize this may not always be so.
