    "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: 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." (Revelation 13:16-17)
    In a startling video expose of the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Bible, renowned researcher and Bible scholar Gail Riplinger discusses the triquetra logo found on each issue of the NKJV. She demonstrates that the NKJV logo is strikingly reminiscent of the symbol employed by pagans and occultists for their unholy, Luciferian trinity of deities. The same unified - yet three-part logo, or symbol - is also connected with the theology of top New Age leaders, and with the dark initiation rites of high-level Freemasonry.
    The publisher of the NKJV, Thomas Nelson Publishing, may claim that their bible's logo represents the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But, if so, why is the same design found dominant in New Age and occult circles? Why does a revoltingly blasphemous Masonic ritual also employ the same symbol?

    A Symbol of Freemasonry

    We reproduce in Flashpoint an illustration from the classic Masonic text, Duncan's Ritual of Freemasonry, which shows how the cryptic "Three Times Three" handclasp is performed in the Royal Arch Degree by three "brothers" of the Lodge. Incredibly, it is during this grotesque ritual that the Masonic initiate learns the true name of the Masonic god, nebulously referred to by Masons as the "Grand Architect of the Universe."

    In this secret ritual, however, the Masonic Lodge reveals that the actual name of their deity is Jahbuhlun. This repugnant name is obtained by combining the name of Jehovah, or Yahweh, with the names of the Philistine god, Baal, and the Egyptian god, On. (On is one of the several names of the great Egyptian sun god.) Thus, Jah-baal-on, or Jahbuhlun.

    A Symbol of Occultism

    Riplinger has brought to my attention that this same tri-part symbol is found concealed in the tail of the Green Dragon, illustrated in Harry E. Wedeck's occult classic volume, Treasury of Witchcraft.

    The same symbol and logo can also be found on an album from Atlantic Records of heavy metal music by Led Zeppelin, the satanic rock group. Moreover, it is similar to the logo of the immense Krupp Works, the German manufacturing giant that was one of the most important producers for Adolf Hitler's Nazi war machine.

    A Symbol of the Aquarian Conspirators

    New Age leader Marilyn Ferguson, who wrote the million copy bestselling book, The Aquarian Conspiracy, included the triquetra symbol at the beginning of each chapter of her 447-page encyclopedia promoting New Age perversion. Indeed, the very cover of her book has this symbol prominently displayed against a stark, black background.

    In her book, The Aquarian Conspiracy, Ferguson displays an arrogant, in-your-face attitude. She confidently discloses that yes, there is a global, New Age conspiracy. She gushingly reports that the goal of its leadership is to dramatically transform humanity and usher in a New Millennium of Oneness. Ferguson writes:

    A leaderless but powerful network is working to bring about radical change in the United States - This network is the Aquarian Conspiracy - There are legions of conspirators. They are in corporations, universities, and hospitals, on the faculties of public schools, in state and federal agencies - and the White House staff. Whatever their station or sophistication, the conspirators are linked (pp. 23-24)
    A Symbol of the Black Madonna

    In countless New Age magazines and books, one will find on prominent display the triquetra seal - the same logo that is used by Thomas Nelson Publishers as the dominant design to announce each copy of its false bible version.

    In Gnosis magazine (Winter 1997, p. 10) I recently discovered an ad promoting a tour of "sacred sites in Southern France." Parti-cipants, the ad explained, will be taken to key places to honor and contemplate the Black Madonna, said to be "a direct link to the pagan Earth goddesses and the archetype of the sensual, uninhibited woman"

    A symbol of High Tech Control

    But perhaps the ultimate use of this strange, ancient symbol of foreboding evil is found on - of all places - a high tech smart card. Gail Riplinger sent me a prototype of a new smart card just unveiled by MasterCard, Visa, Citibank, and Chase Manhattan. I was utterly shocked to find the triquetra symbol emblazoned repeatedly on the card. As Gail told me in her letter, "The latest smart card has the NKJV's logo all over the face of the plastic so that when a picture goes under it, you have 666 on your forehead."

    In other words, the image on the prototype smart card is that of a man, the bearer or holder of the card, who has this dreadful symbol splattered all over his face and head.

    A Symbol of the Beast?

    Gail Riplinger suggests that the design of the triquetra symbol on the smart card is alarmingly likened to that of three 6's linked together: 666! Could it be that this strange symbol is the prophesied Mark of the Beast, that terrifying seal someday to be given each person on Earth, in their forehead or right hand, as a sign of the Beast's unreserved ownership of the individual's body and soul?:


    And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. (Revelation 14:11)
    The prophetic Word solemnly warns us not to receive the "mark of his name." And what is his name? We instantly recall that higher-level Masons worship a false god under the adulterous name, Jahbuhlun. And, as we have seen, the mark of Jahbuhlun is that of the triquetra, the same three-part symbol used by the publisher of the NKJV bible.

    Therefore, I ask once again: Could it be that this symbol - the secretive sign of the Aquarian Conspirators; the symbol of the worshippers of the Black Madonna; the symbol plastered on the image of the face of holders of a coming, new universal smart card - is the very mark signifying the name of the beast?

    A Sign From God

    Frankly, I do not believe that in choosing this symbol for its bible version the publisher of the NKJV bible had any idea of the true meaning of its esoteric significance. But because this bible version, like so many others, is permeated with errors and omissions, I believe it possible that God saw to it that there would be a signal for true Christians - one glaringly printed on this false bible - warning us to reject the NKJV. God is faithful. He always gives His people the light of truth so that darkness can be avoided and rejected.

    I believe, then, we are witnessing the hand of God, cautioning us to have nothing to do with the corrupt, new bible versions. As we have repeatedly stated, the authorized King James Version (KJV) remains the one, true, untarnished Bible. It is accurate and without mixture of error. No wonder, then, that so many deceivers today seek to cast doubt on the powerful, eternal Word of God contained in the King James Bible.

    My friends, the real war in these last days is not in the field of economics. Our major enemy is not political. The greatest battle is not over the conspirators' scheme for the New World Order. What we are engaged in now is the epic contest of the ages. This is a struggle for the spiritual heart of mankind. I thank God that he has provided us with all the ammunition and answers we need to fight in this Holy War and prevail. The mighty weapons we require are found in ample supply in His Book, the majestic and incomparable King James Bible.

    Gabber,

    Thanks for your diligent research. I haven't validated that this symbol is on the Nelson NKJVs, but assuming you are correct, how does that automatically discredit the countless hours of a large team of Hebrew and Greek Bible scholars who felt led by the Holy Spirit to produce a more readable translation? I'm sure they had no idea what the bound final product would look like.

    I'm not a KJVonlyer. Please read the many threads in the "Bible Versions/Translations" forum so as not to reinvent the wheel on the subject here.

    But I do thank you for the info on this symbol and its link to Freemasonry, as well as your comments on that cult. I agree with you completely there!

    God bless!

    I've already given the truth about Freemasonry and how it is NOT a cult and does NOT interfere with Christianity so I'm not gonna repeat it here. But I do want to point out that every bible I've seen in a Masonic Lodge is the KJV not the NKJV.

    Somewhere I've seen the symbol your talking about, but not on my NKJV bible. I just checked, and it's not there. Mine is from Tyndale, buy says Nelson owns the rights.
    So is this yur only argument against a bible? It isn't much.

    I read somewhere that the cross symbol was a pagan symbol, until christians adopted it.

    And from all this we are supposed to believe that the NKJV has an "occult" symbol on its cover.

    What uncommon nonsense!

    Symbols get copied between cultures, borrowed, traded, modified, redefined, spindled, mutilated and folded all the time. Various New Age/occultic/esoteric groups have borrowed symbols from the Christians. Freemasons borrow symbols from Christianity. Mormons borrow symbols from Freemasonry. And round and around they go. It isn't that much of a stretch to see Christendom co-opting a Celtic symbol to teach doctrine, is it? (Besides, even some pagan sources will admit that the Christians might have had this symbol first, and all the pagans and Wiccans borrowed it afterward.)

    The triquetra is a Celtic knot comprising three interlocking arcs. When the early Church evangelized the British Isles, they apparently took advantage of this common symbol and used it as an object lesson into the nature of the Trinity. Its three congruent arcs represent the co-equality of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the interweaving of the arcs represent their unity; the unbrokenness of the figure represent their eternity. As an ancient Christian symbol, it is eminently suitable as a logo for a Bible, just as much as a cross or an ichthys.

    The same symbol and logo can also be found on an album from Atlantic Records of heavy metal music by Led Zeppelin, the satanic rock group.

    Not at all surprising, considering the triquetra's Celtic origins and the band's well-known interest in Tolkien and Celtic legend.

    But the most ridiculous claim made by Gail the Ripper is:

    the design of the triquetra symbol on the smart card is alarmingly likened to that of three 6's linked together: 666!

    Arabic numerals were not used in Europe prior to the tenth century, and the triquetra was adopted into Christian symbolism 500 years or so before that. How could the symbol be three 6's linked together when the people who came up with the symbol had no clue what a "6" was?

    As a source of credible anything, Riplinger is, to say the least, laughable. :rolleyes:

    If you are interested in discussing the matter of "freemasonry" and its religious overtones, I have started a thread on the Baptist Theology Forum. Sounds like we have a divided view already -- should make for a great discussion.

    Food for thought:

    The number of the beast is one number, six hundred and sixty-six.

    Three sixes make eighteen. They are three numbers and are not "six hundred and sixty six", which would be the number of the beast.

    While the symbol for the trinity, with some imagination, can resemble three super-imposed sixes, that has little to do with the number of the beast, which is only one number.

    God is not the author of this confusion.

    I like you - you're silly. :D

    Seriously, all of the stuff about Jimmy Page being a Satanist has already been debunked as being just an urban legend, although he does collect memorabilia associated with Alistair Crowley.

    The rumors of "backwardmasking" have also been proven untrue.

    I don't think you can really make a case that they're "Satanic" or that they're heavy metal, for that matter.

    Also, if you're talking about the symbol I think you're talking about, isn't it awfully similar to the Yamaha logo?

    As a Christian, does that mean I have to give up my minibike? My keyboard?

    Including a castle. [​IMG]

    In any case, Crowley was not a "Satanist," or even an overt worshipper of Satan (I make the distinction because Satanists, i.e. members of the Church of Satan or the Temple of Set, are generally atheists or agnostics who use the Satanic terminology for their shock value). He was an occultist, the head of a hermetic society called the Ordo Templi Orientalis.

    I don't think you can really make a case that they're "Satanic" or that they're heavy metal, for that matter.

    Heck no. Led Zep is a blues outfit - they got their start by ripping off blues standards. [​IMG]

    Also, if you're talking about the symbol I think you're talking about, isn't it awfully similar to the Yamaha logo?

    The Yamaha logo is three tuning forks and a circle (Yamaha was a piano manufacturer before they got into motorcycles).

    As a Christian, does that mean I have to give up my minibike? My keyboard?

    Well, I'd say so, but I own a Korg, so I'm probably just cheering for my side. [​IMG]

    I can forsee a day in which G. A. Riplinger wakes up and finds herself in Hell, because although she scrupulously avoided having triquetras imprinted in anything in her house, much less her hand or forehead, fervently believing it to be the Mark of the Beast . . .

    . . . Ha ha! It was the Universal Product Code all along. The joke's on her! [​IMG]
