NKJV and Lucis Trust: Ready For One World Church

The New King James Version translators removed the phrase, "he that should come"  (he referred to Christ) and replaced it with the New Age interfaith term, "the Coming One" three times in their New King James [Transitional] Version. (see below)

In like fashion, Lucis Trust removed the word "Christ" and replaced it with "the Coming One" in their Great Invocation Revised Version. (1) These changes make the world prayer more universal, inclusive and unifying. The text alterations made to the New King James Version cause the Bible to be more universal, inclusive and unifying as well. 

Below are excerpts from the Great Invocation--a world prayer and mantram for the New Age that Lucis Trust states is "the major agent for the transformation of the human will."

Original Version (1945)

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

Revised Version (2000)

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into human hearts.
May the Coming One return to Earth

[According to the page that was removed from intuition-in-service.org, the Revised Version was issued in March, 2000.]

Lucis Trust explained their rationale for removing the word, "Christ" and replacing it with "the Coming One":

"Christ", unfortunately, too often is viewed as the sole province of Christianity and not relevant to people of other religions or of no particular religion. These two points we think can be modified, if deemed necessary, without compromising the unparallelled spiritual value of the Great Invocation in the version which follows. (2) bold emphasis added

The Lucis Trust one world religion planners removed the word that is too often viewed as "the sole province of Christianity" (Christ) from their world prayer and replaced it with a word more conducive to the formation of the One World Church: "the Coming One." The New King James Version translators did the same.

NKJV Translators Replace "he that should come" (Christ) with the Coming One

The NKJV translators (as well as John Darby, Ellen G. White and other New Age change agents) gave the Lord Jesus Christ the title of the New Age World Teacher--the Coming One:

Luke 7:19:  And John, calling two of his disciples to him, sent them to Jesus, [a] saying, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”

Footnotes:

  1. Luke 7:19 NU-Text reads the Lord.

Luke 7:20: When the men had come to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, ‘Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?’”

Matthew 11:3: and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?"

Quotes are from the New King James Version at biblegateway.com.

Since the "Coming One" is the New Age World Teacher, (the Antichrist) it follows that the New King James Version translators removed the title, "master," from the Lord Jesus Christ and replaced it with "teacher." (A partial listing: Matt. 8:19, 19:16, 22:16, 23:8, 23:10, Mark 5:35, Mark 10:17, Mark 12:32, and many more.) Note: John Darby, the Father of Dispensationalism did the same.
