The Word WAS God ?…
No! The Spoken Promise exists in The Heavenly Scroll! John 1:1-5
The doctrine of pre-existence and incarnation lives and dies on the first few verses in John Chapter 1 that seem to say Yahusha was “the Word” and he was with God and he was God. In this teaching, I am going to introduce us to the effects of Greek Hellenism and “the lying pen of the scribe”.
We are going to learn that the concept/doctrine surrounding the word “logos” being the manifestation of God is a pagan Greek Philosophy taught by just about every Greek Philosopher before the Messiah came and afterward. The translators who gave us our English Bibles were all Hellenized Greeks who poured into the Hebrew texts all the implications of these Greek Philosophies.
Logos a Pagan Philosophy
The Nazarene followers of The Branch issued a stern warning that the truth was being twisted by the Greeks into a pagan lie:
1 Corinthians 1 20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not Yahuah made foolish the wisdom (philosophy) of this world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of Yahuah, the world (the Roman Empire) through wisdom (philosophy) did not know Yahuah, it pleased Yahuah through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom (through philosophy); 23 but we preach the Passover sacrifice of Yahusha, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, the Messiah is the power of Yahuah and the wisdom of Yahuah. 25 Because the foolishness of Yahuah is wiser than men, and the weakness of Yahuah (if there is such a thing) is stronger than men.
2 Peter 3 14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our King is salvation—as also our beloved brother Sha’ul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people (Greeks) twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
Let’s look closer at how the doctrine evolved that Yahusha is literally the “Word” or “Divine Logos” of Yahuah that became flesh used to justify incarnation. Is Yahusha literally the “Word” or is Yahusha the fulfillment of Yahuah’s Word from the beginning. There is a big difference. As you can see, the entire doctrine of incarnation that lead to the acceptance of the pagan Babylonian Trinity through syncretism, did not come about until 4 centuries after Yahusha lived and died. The false doctrine that Yahusha is literally “Logos”, and not the fulfillment of Yahuah’s predestined plan, evolved in the 4th Century through the “tradition and reasoning” under the influence of pagan Greek philosophers such as Plato…
The Abingdon Dictionary of Living Religions, page 767 TRINITY (Ch). The Dogma, formulated authoritatively in fourth century church Councils, that Christians worship one God in three persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) and one substance. Under pressure to explain to a hostile Roman world how Christians counted themselves monotheists, Christian apologists (notably Justin Martyr, d. 165) combined Johannine and Stoic-Platonic philosophy of the term “Logos” ("Reason," or "Word") in order to maintain that the Son was both God's own self-expression and a being distinct from him.
So we read above The Trinity was justified not through the Word of Yahuah (because it cannot be) it was justified using Hellenism or the “combined Johannine and Stoic Platonic” pagan philosophy of the term “Logos”. We read below the term logos was defined by Christians according to the interpretations of pagan influenced philosophers in order to promote a false pagan God-savior:
Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 7, page 449: LOGOS (Greek:"word, "reason, or plan"), plural logoi, in Greek philosophy and theology, the divine reason implicit in the cosmos, ordering it and giving it form and meaning. Though the concept defined by the term logos is found in Greek, Indian, Egyptian, and Persian philosophical and theological systems, it became particularly significant in Christian writings and doctrines to describe or define the role of Jesus Christ as the principle of God active in the creation and the continuation structuring of the cosmos and in revealing the divine plan of salvation to man. It thus underlies the basic Christian doctrine of the pre-existence of Jesus… The identification of Jesus with the logos was further developed in the early church but more on the basis of Greek philosophical ideas than on Old Testament motifs.
The Religions of Ancient Greece and Babylonia clearly tells us the Greek philosophical ideas were developed in Alexandria, Egypt from the pagan Babylonian mystery religions. These ideas, pertaining to the meaning of Logos, penetrated as a result of modern religious thought through the philosophy of Greece and Egypt. It was through syncretism that we have the word “Logos” or “Word” written in our English Bibles instead of the word “dabar or The Plan of Yahuah”:
The Religions of Ancient Greece and Babylonia, by A. H. Sayce. pages 229-230 Many of the theories of Egyptian religion, modified and transformed no doubt, have penetrated into the theology of Christian Europe, and form, as it were, part of the woof in the web of modern religious thought. Christian theology was largely organized and nurtured in the schools of Alexandria, and Alexandria was not only the meeting place of East and West, it was also the place where the decrepit theology of Egypt was revivified by contact with the speculative philosophy of Greece. Perhaps, however, the indebtedness of Christian theological theory to ancient Egyptian dogma is nowhere more striking than in the doctrine of the Trinity. The very terms used of it by Christian theologians meet us again in the inscriptions and papyri of Egypt. Originally the trinity was a triad like those we find in Babylonian mythology. The triad consisted of a divine father, wife, and son. The father became the son and the son the father through all time, and of both alike the mother was but another form.
The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, Volume 3, page 1085 Among the systems offering an explanation of the world in terms of the logos, there are the Mystery Religions. These cultic communities did not see their task as lying in the communication of knowledge of a scientific nature, but of mysteries to their initiates who strove for purification in the recurrent enactment of sacred actions. The Foundation for these cultic actions was Sacred Text. Among them were the cults of Dionysus, the Pytha-goreans, and the Orphic Mysteries. By means of these cults, non Greek thought, such as in the Isis-Osiris Mysteries, which Osiris the logos created by Isis is the spiritual image of the world. Similarly in the cult of Hermes, Hermes informed his son Tat in the Sacred Text belonging to the cult, how by God's mercy, he became logos, and thus a son of God. As such, he (Hermes) brought regulation and form into world, but himself remained a mediating being between God and matter, on one side, and God and man on the other. The logos can also, however, appear as the son of Hermes, resulting in a triple (trinity) gradation: God (who is Zeus), Son (Hermes), and LOGOS.
We read in The New World Encyclopedia the concept of “Logos” being the “intermediary between God and the Universe by which the Universe was created” was first conceived by Heraclitus then every pagan Greek Philosopher after him including Stoic, Philo, Socrates, Plato, Joanine, and Aristotle!
We also read from that same source here that is the foundation of just about every pagan religion that evolved out of Babylon:
In fact, The Catholic Church admits the Hebrew originals were ALTERED by pagan scribes on purpose to promote their existing pagan beliefs. The Roman Catholic Church herself admits to the forgery of the Holy Scriptures.
The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume 6, page 136 "Substitution of false documents and tampering with genuine ones was quite a trade in the Middle Ages. Innocent III (1198) points out nine species of forgery [of ecclesiastical records] which had come under his notice. But such frauds of the Church were not confined to the Middle Ages; they begin even with the beginning of the Church and infest every period of its history for fifteen hundred years and defile nearly every document, both of "Scriptures" and of Church aggrandizement. As truly said by Collins, in his celebrated Discourse of Free Thinking: "In Short, these frauds are very common in all books which are published by priests or priestly men... For it is certain they may plead the authority of the Fathers for Forgery, Corruption and mangling of Authors, with more reason than for any of their Articles of Faith.."(p.96.)"
I am going to show that the Book of John was not written in Greek but Hebrew so he never even used the word ‘logos’ to begin with. The evidence is overwhelming that John was a Hebrew Nazarene and rejected incarnation outright and never intended for his words to be twisted to conform to Greek Philosophy!
I am going to take us into the Greek language and we are going to look at what these words mean in the first few verses of John Chapter 1 and I am going to prove every English translation of the Bible is in grave ERROR! This “error” has led us all to literally blaspheme The Creator and worship a mortal man who died. Sha’ul warned us this was already going on in Rome in his day.
The Greeks worshiped demi-gods men who were all “god in the flesh” as did every pagan religion dating back to Babylon! I am going to show scholarly references that admit the entire concept of incarnation is based on Babylonian doctrines.
The Greeks twisted the Holy Scriptures out of Hebrew into Greek to promote their pagan idolatry of mortal men and elevated the Hebrew Messiah into Tammuz/Jesus the incarnated demi-god and FALSE MESSIAH. Then burned the original Hebrew texts to hide this blasphemy and deception.
I realize this is going to be very difficult for almost everyone who reads it as we all have literally based the foundation of our faith in Greek Mythology and Philosophy putting our trust in the English translated Bible we read. If you are wise, you will read every word of this document, click on every link in it, and study it until you come to understand what has happened. Your eternal life depends on it!
Let us begin and let us hope you finish it and are not blinded by The Dragon (incarnation).
The Word was God… or “the spoken promise exists divinely preserved in the Heavens“?
Let’s begin with John Chapter 1
John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
I am going to prove that is a gross mistranslation of the text, a violation of the rules of languages, and built on Greek Philosophy not the Hebraic Mindset. Remember, John was written in HEBREW as I will show and used the word “dabar” not “logos” which means “God’s Predestined Plan or Spoken Promise”!
It should read:
John 1 1 In the beginning was the SPOKEN PROMISE (the Word of His Testimony), and the SPOKEN PROMISE (to send a Messiah) was with God (in the beginning Gen. 1:2 "let there be light"), and the Spoken Promise existed divinely written in heaven (in the stars at creation called The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 19).
Below I am going to address each word in that phrase “Word was God” and prove it is a mistranslation and twisting of the text under The Spirit of the False Messiah to elevate the Messiah into a Greek demigod in idolatry (see Romans 1).
The “WORD” was God
Logos (Greek for ‘word’) and Dabar (Hebrew for ‘word’) mean a “thing (word/promise) spoken by a living being” or rather a “word” as in plan, proposal, or promise. Logos/Dabar is a THING not a person by the very definition. So right away that rules out the translation “and the word was God” as it is the THING/promise spoken BY God, it is not a god.
The Word “WAS” God
The word the translators used to translate g1510 ‘was‘ is in error as well. The Word/Logos/Dabar/Spoken Promise called The Heavenly Scroll exists eternally… not in past tense ‘was‘.
1 Peter 1:25 but the word of Yahuah stands forever (written in The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 119:89)." And this is the word (of His Testimony) that was proclaimed to you. Psalm 119:89 Your word (dabar/logos/spoken promise), Yahuah, is eternal; it stands firm (written) in the heaven(ly Scroll). Psalm 89:2 For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heaven(ly Scroll) You will establish Your faithfulness."
The actual meaning of g1510 is not ‘was’ it is ‘exists‘!
The Word was “GOD”
The word translated ‘God’ is also out of context in this case. Since “Word” is not a god it is a thing, then we must choose the definition of g2316 that harmonizes with the Scriptures. Strong’s g2316 can mean “divinely” or “godly” as in something from Yahuah such as His Spoken Promise is a “divine promise”.
The Spoken Promise (Logos/Dabar) exists ( en -g1510) Divinely (Theos – g2316)!
Now that we have examined the actual Greek words translated “Word was God“, we find the actual translation (outside of pagan Greek Philosophical influence) is that Yahuah’s Spoken Promise in Gen. 1:2 “let there be light” was then authored into Creation on Day 4 with the creation of The Heavenly Scroll as SIGNS… that tell of the coming Messiah Psalm 19.
This is what ALL the prophets proclaimed and what the Nazarenes taught… The Word/Logos/Dabar is called The Heavenly Scroll; written into Creation as an eternal witness to all mankind and IT (the Word of His Testimony/Logos/Dabar) exists as Yahuah’s stamp over His Creation and promise to reconcile all things back to Himself through a human mediating Royal High Priest. It was THAT “Word” that Yahusha came to fulfill….
Hebrews 10:7 Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the heavenly scroll-- I have come to do your will, my God! (Matthew 6:10) Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).
But we are stubborn and desire to follow The Way of the Gentiles and worship a mortal man who died. We simply will not admit to the existence of the “Word (Logos/Dabar) of His Testimony” written into the stars!
Isaiah 48 3 I foretold the former things long ago (Logos/Dabar/Spoken Promise from the beginning), my mouth announced them (during Creation Week) and I made them known (“let there be light”); then suddenly I acted (on Day 4), and they came to pass (in The Heavenly Scroll as My eternal witness in Creation Psalm 119:89). 4 For I knew how stubborn you were; your neck muscles were iron, your forehead was bronze. 5 Therefore I told you these things long ago (as the sun/stars/constellation cry out day after day, night after night the Works of My Hands Psalm 19); before they happened I announced them to you (in The Heavenly Scroll) so that you could not say,’My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them (because they are written into the fabric of Creation).’ 6 You have heard these things (the stars proclaim day after day, night after night Psalm 19); look at them all (the Sun/stars/constellations). WILL YOU NOT ADMIT THEM? “From now on I will tell you of new things (in The Heavenly Scroll through my prophets), revealed now (through my prophets), and not long ago (as they were hidden secrets men were striving to learn Enoch 6:9); you have not heard of (the meaning of) them before today. So you cannot say, ‘Yes, I knew of them.’ 12 “Listen to me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the Aleph and I am the Tav (“perfect unity” there is no other God).13 My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavenly scroll; when I summon them together, When I call out the stars/constellations, they all appear in order (as the Sun passes through them to proclaim The Word of My Testimony as My stamp over this Creation as The Creator) 14 “Come together, all of you, and listen (to what The Heavenly Scroll proclaims and to my prophets who read it and reveal its meaning): Which of the idols has foretold these things? Yahuah’s chosen one (the Branch/Seed the one prophesied in The Heavenly Scroll) will carry out his purpose against Babylon (to defeat The Dragon/Incarnation); his arm will be against the Babylonians (all religions are based on the Babylonian Zodiac of incarnated demi-gods). 15 I, even I, have spoken (Logos/Dabar promise spoken by The Creator); Yes, I have called him (The Branch in Righteousness Isaiah 42:6). I will bring him forth (as The Branch Zechariah Chapter 3), and he will succeed in his mission (to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll and be seated as King who inherits The Universe which is My Purpose in Creation).
The Book of John was written in Hebrew NOT Greek!
We have all fallen for The Great Deception! We are told the Greek Manuscripts are the “originals” and can be trusted. We are even told The English Bibles we read are “inerrant” when they are full of errors cover to cover as the Greeks twisted the Hebrew Scriptures to conform to The Cult of Sol Invictus. If you would like to learn the true “source” of the pagan religion of Christianity, who created it, what they believed, and so forth… read my book Christianity and the Great Deception.

The Gospel of John was not written from the pagan mindset associated with the Greek word ‘logos’. The Gospel of John was written from a Hebraic mindset as John was a Hebrew Nazarene not a pagan Christian and penned originally in Hebrew not Greek using the Hebrew word ‘dabar’ instead of ‘logos’:
The Wycliffe Bible Encyclopedia, Moody Press, Chicago, IL, Volume 2 pages 1046-1047. Many scholars have argued that the apostle John had this philosophical development (of the pagan LOGOS) in the back of his mind when he wrote the prologue to his Gospel and that he actually tried to impart some of these (pagan) concepts. For a long time many have contended that the background of the fourth Gospel was essentially Hellenistic rather than Hebraic. In dealing with such an assertion we may note that studies in the Dead Sea scrolls have tended to confirm the traditional conservative position that the cultural orientation of the Gospel of John was Hebraic. Moreover, we must observe that John was a simple fisherman from Palestine (a true Nazarene). … there is no evidence that he imbibed any Greek pagan philosophical orientation in John Chapter 1. If he intended to be philosophical in the first few verses, he certainly was not anywhere else. We may argue that John used the word "logos" in its ordinary meaning in Greek with the implication of "dabar" in Hebrew meaning "predestined plan".
The Encyclopedia Judaica, Volume 12, page 1060 THE LANGUAGE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT. Although the language of the New Testament, in the form that it exists today, is Greek, two earlier influences are still discernible. (1) THE INFLUENCE OF THE ARAMAIC-HEBREW ORIGINALS. Because most of the authors were Jewish Nazarenes, they spoke, for the most part, Aramaic, and some also mishnaic Hebrew. This influence, which was detectable particularly in the original versions of Mark and Matthew, survives to some degree in their extant Greek versions and in several of the Epistles as well, including James and Jude. (2) THE SEPTUAGINT. Since this translation was used by many authors, the New Testament contains not only Aramaic words and phrases, which the disciples heard from Jesus and took care to remember out of reverence for their master (e.g. Talitha Kumi (Mark 5:41), Kum, Rabboni, Eli, Eli (Elohi, Elohi) lama sabachthani (Matt. 27:46; Mark 15:24)), but also expressions and phrases which retain their Hebrew flavor although they were transmitted through the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible.
Dabar vs. Logos
The Gospel of John was originally written in Hebrew then Hellenized into a Greek appropriate book in order to assimilate pagan religions through syncretism (the practice of blending Hellenized paganism with the Hebrew Faith) we call Hellenization.
Both Christianity and modern Judaism are syncretized human religions based on Hellenism. Everyone should fully understand what happened during this time in history. The Truth of Yahuah was merged with pagan Hellenism through syncretism. We see below that nothing changed with Hellenism and that the same gods continued to be worshiped until 300 CE. This is when Constantine held The Counsel of Nicaea and brought everything under one pagan religion called Christianity (see my book Christianity and the Great Deception):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellenistic_religion Hellenistic religion - Hellenistic religion is any of the various systems of beliefs and practices of the people who lived under the influence of ancient Greek culture during the Hellenistic period and the Roman Empire (c. 300 BCE to 300 CE). There was much continuity in Hellenistic religion: the Greek gods continued to be worshipped, and the same rites were practiced as before. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellenization Hellenization - The twentieth century witnessed a lively debate over the extent of Hellenization in the Levant and particularly among the ancient Palestinian Jews that has continued until today. The Judaism of the diaspora was thought to have succumbed thoroughly to its influences. Bultmann thus argued that Christianity arose almost completely within those Hellenistic confines and should be read against that background as opposed to a more traditional (Palestinian) Jewish background.
A Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament, by Julius Furst, page 312 Dabar a) command, precept, law e) decree, plan, proposal
The Interpreter's Dictionary , Volulme 4 pages 870-871 "The word of God" (o logof tou qeou) is used of: (a) the OT law (cf. Mark 7:13=Matt 15:6, where it is contrasted with the tradition of the Jews); (b) a particular OT passage (cf. John 10:35, referring to Ps. 82:6); (c) in a more general sense, God's revealed will, or his whole plan and purpose for mankind (cf. Luke 11:28; Rom. 9:6; Col. 1:25-27, where it is defined as the "mystery hidden for ages and generations but now manifest to his saints..., which is Christ in you"; Heb. 4:12);.
John fulfilled Zechariah’s Song
John Chapter 1 is the fulfillment of Zechariah’s Song, the prophetic utterance of John’s Priestly Father who prophesied that John would restore the meaning of The Heavenly Scroll and bear witness that Yahusha is the fulfillment of the “Light/Sun” in the flesh as “the Spiritual Light of the World”…
John, as the greatest prophet of all (Matthew 11:11), was shown The Heavenly Scroll and The WAY of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. His commission was to restore The Heavenly Scroll (that is why his followers were called Nazarenes (Notrsi/Branch) and that is why he is called John the Baptist (Mikveh) and his sect called The Way (Acts 24:14).
Below is the prophecy spoken over John by the Priest Zechariah (his father) as Zechariah declares that his son John would restore The Heavenly Scroll and bear witness to its fulfillment see Psalm 19:1-6.
Luke 1 76 And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Messiah to prepare THE WAY for him (to fulfill The Law and be perfected Matthew 3:15), 77 to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins (MIKVEH, CIRCUMCISION, OFFERING... The Way), 78 because of the tender mercy of our God (the spoken promise logos/dabar/Heavenly Scroll), BY WHICH THE RISING SUN (Psalm 19:6) WILL COME TO US FROM THE HEAVENLY SCROLL (Psalm 19:1-6)! 79 to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death (the Sun/stars/constellations witness to all mankind shining down day after day, night after night of the coming Branch Psalm 19), to guide our feet into the path of peace (as The Prince of Peace).”
That is exactly what John Chapter 1 is proclaiming that the “Light” of the Sun which proclaims the coming Messiah Psalm 19, was fulfilled “in the flesh” as Yahusha is the true Light of the World.
Psalm 19 1 The heavens (sun/stars/constellations) are telling of THE GLORY OF YAHUAH (John 1:14); And their expanse is declaring (dictating) the work of His hands (as everything that was done was done according to the Logos/Dabar/Spoken Promise written in the stars John 1:4). 2 Day to day the Sun/stars/constellations pours forth speech (Logos/Dabar - "that SPOKEN by Yahuah"), And night to night reveals knowledge (to those living in darkness Luke 1:79). 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. 4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world (John 1:9 and Luke 1:79). In the stars Yahuah has placed a tent for the sun (John 1:5), 5 Which the Sun is as a (physical metaphor of a) bridegroom coming out of his chamber (meaning of the Feast Cycle); The Sun rejoices as a strong man to run his course (as the Groom). 6 The Sun's rising is from one end of the heavens (Luke 1:78-79 this is what made John a PROPHET! He would proclaim the "rising Sun coming to us from The Heavenly Scroll"), to the ends of the Earth" (John 1:9).
The restoration of The Heavenly Scroll began with John…
Matthew 11 12 From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subject to violence, and the violent lay claim to it (Ba'al Shamayim has taken the Throne in The Heavenly Scroll by force). 13 For all the prophets and the Law prophesied (concerning the coming King foretold in The Heavenly Scroll) until John (came to reveal it and bear witness to the fulfillment of it).
The Word (Dabar/Logos) is The Word of His Testimony! Called The Heavenly Scroll whereas Zechariah rightfully declared “BY WHICH THE RISING SUN WILL COME TO US FROM THE HEAVENLY SCROLL“… that is what John was bearing witness to in John Chapter 1 just like his father the Priest Zechariah prophesied he would do.
Yahusha did NOT come to fulfill Greek Philosophy! He came to fulfill the Word of Yahuah’s Testimony written into creation in the beginning… but we have accepted human testimony and denied The Heavenly Scroll!
1 John 5:9 We accept human testimony (Greek Philosophy), but Yahuah's testimony (Word of His Testimony) is greater because it is the testimony of Yahuah (written into creation in the beginning), which he has given about his Son (Psalm 19).
The Spoken Promise from the Beginning Genesis 1:2
John was proclaiming that Yahuah had authored into creation, a spoken promise, a plan of salvation, and that plan/promise was the “purpose” behind creation. In that “plan” is the “light that was life” as we were chosen to live in covenant with the Messiah since “the foundation of the world” or rather “in the beginning” as John declares … this PURPOSE/PROMISE spoken by Yahuah would be fulfilled “in the flesh” at the fullness of time at the end of the Age of Aries when the lamb dies and Pisces begins, the 4th prophetic day just as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll…
We see Sha’ul lay out The Creator’s (Yahuah NOT Yahusha) purpose “since the beginning” spoken as Yahuah promised to beget a family in covenant with the Branch/Groom which is what the stars proclaim Psalm 19. We see Sha’ul below declare that is was by that plan/promise that He spoke in the beginning before time began that he would “work all things (in creation) after the counsel of His Own Will” referring to the Logos/Dabar as the stars/constellations “declare the Works of His Hands” Psalm 19.
Ephesians 1 8 Wherein (covenant with Yahusha) He (Yahuah) has abounded toward us (unlimited Grace) in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known unto us (from the beginning) the mystery of His will (to beget a family), according to His (Yahuah's) good pleasure which He has purposed (predestined to create) in (the full image of) Himself (He is the Father of Elohim, the One True Living God Matthew 17:3): 10 That in the dispensation of the time of fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll (4th prophetic day as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll and the prophets) He (Yahuah) might gather together (again) in one all things in (covenant with Yahusha the) Messiah, both which are in heaven (The Kingdom of Yahuah), and which are on earth; even in Him(self, Yahuah will reconcile creation through the sacrifice of His Son Colossians 1:20 and 2 Cor. 5:18): 11 In whom (the first born Son, Messiah Yahusha) also we (too) have obtained an inheritance (Romans 8:17 as sons of Yahuah, we inherit the Universe Galatians 4:1-7), being predestinated according to the PURPOSE of Yahuah (from the beginning written into creation) who works all things after the counsel of His own will (the Dabar/Logos John 1... all that was done was done according to His predestined purpose/plan and The Heavenly Scroll declares the Works of His Hands Psalm 19): 12 That we (sons of Yahuah) should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Messiah Yahusha (as our Mediator who showed us The Way).
That is the “thing” spoken by Yahuah in the beginning called “the Light’ or revelation. That light/revelation was then authored into the fabric of creation on Day 4 as Yahuah designed the sun/stars as SIGNS (Constellations) that tell the life of the one promised to come as David proclaimed (and so did every other prophet) in Psalms 19. The Dabar/Logos was represented as the Light of the Sun as a metaphor of the coming “Light of the World” as John proclaimed in John 1. The Heavenly Scroll is “The Word (Logos/Dabar) of His Testimony”!
- The Universe created through the Messiah? No… It was given THROUGH inheritance
John 1:3 Through IT (the Plan/Purpose of Yahuah Ephesians 1:8-12) all things were done (the stars declare the Works of His Hands Psalm 19:1). And without IT (that purpose in mind), not even one things was done that was done (by Yahuah on account of His son as an inheritance).
Daniel 7 13 “I kept looking in the night visions (he was looking at the stars), and behold (in The Heavenly Scroll), with the clouds of heaven One (Orion) like a Son of Man (Orion represents the Messiah in The Heavenly Scroll) was coming, (now Daniel reads the message in The Heavenly Scroll) And He (The Messiah) came up to the Ancient of Days (Yahuah, they are NOT the same being and Yahusha is NOT "the ancient of days") And Yahusha was presented before Yahuah. 14 “And to Him (Yahusha) was given (by Yahuah as an inheritance) dominion, Glory and a kingdom (he is the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll which "declares the Glory of Yahuah" Psalm 19:1 and speaks of a coming Kingdom and King to rule creation), that all the peoples, nations and men of every language Might serve Him (not worship Yahusha, we serve Yahusha the King in The Kingdom). His dominion (As King over the Government that governs creation) is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed (constellation LEO).
1 Peter 1:25 but the word of Yahuah stands forever (written in The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 119:89)." And this is the word (of His Testimony) that was proclaimed to you. Psalm 119:89 Your word (dabar/logos), Yahuah, is eternal; it stands firm (written) in the heaven(ly Scroll). Psalm 89:2 For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heavens You will establish Your faithfulness."
Hebrews 10:7 Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the heavenly scroll-- I have come to do your will, my God! (Matthew 6:10) Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).
Proper translation and meaning of John 1:1-5
John 1 - the REAL meaning 1. In the beginning was the Spoken Promise (Logos/Dabar - thing, plan, proposal, prophecy, PROMISE), and the Spoken Promise was with Yahuah (Genesis 1:1 “let there be light/revelation…”). And the Spoken Promise exists divinely (written in heaven). 2. The Spoken Promise existed in the beginning with Yahuah (light of Gen. 1:1 the revelation of The Plan of Salvation). 3. Through the Spoken Promise (the Plan/Purpose of Yahuah Ephesians 1:8-12) all things were done. And without the Spoken Promise (that purpose in mind), not even one things was done that was done. 4. In the Spoken Promise
(the Plan, purpose) was life and the life was the light (revelation) to all men (the Sun/stars preach to all mankind Psalm 19). 5. And now the light shines in the darkness (The Heavenly Scroll has been fulfilled) and the darkness does not overcome it (Colossians 1).
Yahusha was PROMISED (dabar) beforehand (in the Heavenly Scroll) he did not pre-exist as the pagan concept of Logos…
