I have  the following software's installed to protect my computers.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Ccleaner
Microsoft security essentials

I continue to get these "java version out of date" warnings and then a "phishing attack ahead" warning when I browse the internet. I have 2 Windows 7 Pro 64 bit machines and only one is having this problem. I have done complete scans and cleanups using the software's listed above and I continue to get these warnings. What gives?

I do not think the warning "phishing attack ahead" has anything to do with Java.  But rather is part of Google Chrome's "Safe Browsing".
 http://www.welivesecurity.com/2014/07/15/google-chrome-security/

The "java version out of date" is telling you that a website thinks you should update Java.  This is a quirk of many websites even when you already have the latest version installed.  
If the website allows you to proceed to view and work on the website, ignore the "warning".  If the website blocks you :
Use the Java Uninstaller Tool first
http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/uninstaller_toolinfo.xml
and then download and reinstall the latest version of Java.  Use Seth Simmons link or get it from here.
