The Word WAS God? … No!
“The Divinely Spoken Promise exists Eternally in The Heavenly Scroll!” Yahuchanan/John 1:1-5.
From my book “The Testimony of Yahuchanan”… click here.
The Testimony of John Chapter 1 begins with the fulfillment of Zechariah’s (the Immerser’s Priestly Father who served in The Temple) prophecy concerning John the Immerser’s role as a Prophet of Yahuah. John the Immerser was to restore The Heavenly Scroll and show Yahuah’s People The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering laid out in the stars at Creation. He was to “set the Path of The Messiah straight” by Mikveh’ing The Messiah clean of his sin by walking The Way so that he could be consecrated High Priest by Yahuah (ZZechariah Chapter 3).
Let us review the prophecy spoken over Yahuchanan/John the Immerser by his father Zacharyahu/Zechariah.
76 And you, my child, will be called a Prophet of the Most High (for proclaiming The Heavenly Scroll/Plan of Salvation); for you will go on before The Messiah to prepare THE WAY for him (of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering Matthew 3:13-17), 77 to give his people the Knowledge of Salvation through the forgiveness of their sins (through MIKVEH called The Way), 78 because of the tender Mercy of our Elohim, BY WHICH THE RISING SUN WILL COME TO US FROM THE HEAVENLY SCROLL (to restore The Word of His Testimony written in the stars John Chapter 1:1-3)! 79 to (arise and) shine (ORION the Bearer of the Light of Life Isaiah 60:1) on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death (John 1:5), to guide our feet into the Path of Peace (as the Prince of Peace Isaiah 6:9 to re-unite the two houses constellation Cancerand brings The covenant of Peace to the Nations Isaiah 42:5-7).
This is the Scriptural context of Yahuchanan/John 1:1-28 and must be understood within the context of what Yahuchanan/John the Immerser was sent to accomplish, what he taught, and the role he played in The Plan of Salvation. He did not come to bear witness to “God coming to Earth in the flesh” but rather to testify and bear witness to The Heavenly Scroll and that it would be fulfilled in the flesh by Yahusha.
“The Word was God” … or “the Spoken Promise exists Divinely Preserved in the Heavens”?
John Chapter 1 has been mistranslated by pagan scribes to incorporate pagan doctrines and philosophies into what John actually wrote. We have been misled to literally blaspheme Yahuah by our English Bibles! We must correct this grave error in translation and restore The Truth. Yahusha was not a pre-existing member of a triune deity, he was not a god, and the Word is not a “person” it is an “it”!
So, let us correct the “Lying Pen of the Scribes” and restore the Truth and “come out of Babylon”.
Let’s begin with John 1:1… Below is the twisted version we find in every modern translation:
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 the languages, and built on Greek Philosophy
John 1:1 should read:
In the Beginning was the SPOKEN PROMISE (The Word of His Testimony), and the SPOKEN PROMISE (to send a Messiah) was with Yahuah (in The Beginning Gen. 1:2 and Yahuah SAID "let there be light"), and the Spoken Promise exists Divinely written in heaven (in the stars at Creation called The Heavenly Scroll see 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 or 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, Psalm 89:2). And this is the Word (of His Testimony) that was proclaimed to you (The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll is at hand).
Your Word (Dabar/LOGOS/Spoken Promise), Yahuah, is Eternal; it stands firm (written) in The Heavenly Scroll.
For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In The Heavenly Scroll You will establish Your Faithfulness."
The true translation 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;
The Spoken Promise (LOGOS – g3056) 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/Revelation” 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 as I will prove without a doubt in my book The Testimony of Yahuchanan.
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 he did not come to Earth from some mythical place called Heaven located in the stars where he lived with “God”! That is 100% pagan… and we all fell for it because of The Lying Pen of the Scribes made The Word of His Testimony into a lie.
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)
Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is (written) in (the) Heaven(ly Scroll).
This Message is The Gospel that John the Immerser was Anointed to bring as the Greatest Prophet of all.
1 In those days John the Immerser came teaching The Way [Doctrine of Righteousness of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering which is The Way to forgiveness of sin] (Luke 1:77-79), preaching in the wilderness of Yahdah/Judea 2 and saying, Repent, for The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll is near (The Branch/Messiah/King foretold in the stars was at hand). 3 This is he who was spoken of through the Prophet Isaiah: A voice of one calling in the wilderness (restoring The Heavenly Scroll – ‘the rising Sun will come to us from The Heavenly Scroll’), Prepare The Way for The King (Luke 1:77-79), making his Path straight through Mikveh (forgiveness of his sin through Living Water/Mikveh Matthew 3:13-17 the foundation of The New Covenant Jeremiah 31, Ezekiel 36).
This is the Message that Yahusha the Nazarene came to teach and reveal.
the people living in darkness (following The Way of the Gentiles, the corrupted Zodiac Romans 1) have seen a great Light (as ‘the Sun has come to us from The Heavenly Scroll’ to show us The Way/Doctrine of Righteousness of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering Luke 1:77-78, Malachi 4:2); on those living in the land of (the Gentiles who live in) the shadow of death (of the corrupted Babylonian Zodiac Romans 1. ‘I will make you a covenant to the Nations, I will also give you for a Light, fulfillment of The Light of the Sun, to the Gentiles’ Isaiah 42:7-9), a Light has dawned (the rising sun has been fulfilled on Earth in the flesh John 1:1-4, Luke 1:77-79).17 From that time on Yahusha began to teach The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering saying, Repent (Circumcision of Heart) and be Mikveh’d (washed clean of your sin Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36), for The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll (Shamayim – ‘the stars’) is within your reach (he has come to fulfill it and show us The Way).
And this is the Gospel Message we all, as Nazarenes, are to take to the Nations:
6 Go rather to the Lost Sheep of Yisrael. 7 As you go, preach this Message: ‘- The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll has been fulfilled (at hand)”
We have turned our backs on The Word of His Testimony.
…39 For this reason (turning their back on The Heavenly Scroll and following The Way of the Gentiles) they were unable to believe. For again, Isaiah says: 40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so that they cannot see with their eyes (what the stars proclaim Psalm 19), and understand with their hearts (the meaning of the Light of the Sun Yeshayahu/Isaiah 6:9-10), and turn (from The Way of the Gentile Sun Worship), and I would heal them (as 'the Sun coming with healing in its wings' Malachi 4:2). 41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Yahusha’s Glory (as he witnessed The Heavenly Scroll which declare the Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19 and Enoch 35:3) and spoke about Yahusha (revealed the contents of The Heavenly Scroll Isaiah 48)
…9 He said, Go, and tell this people: 'Keep on listening (to what the stars proclaim to all mankind day after day Psalm 19), but do not perceive (the meaning of the constellations); Keep on looking (‘for the Secrets Preserved in the heavens which men were striving to learn’ Enoch 9:6), but do not comprehend the Secret (The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll).' 10 "Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes blind, Otherwise they might see with their eyes (The Heavenly Scroll), Hear with their ears (what the stars proclaim), Understand with their hearts (the Plan of Salvation which is the meaning of the Light of the Sun as traveling the ecliptic Psalm 19), And return and be healed."
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this Age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so they cannot see the Light of the Gospel of the Glory of Yahusha (The Heavenly Scroll), who is the image of Elohim (the risen Son, Divine Representative of Yahuah’s Power and Majesty h430 ‘elohim’ Thayer’s – “1 plural in number. a. rulers, judges, either as divine representatives at sacred places or as reflecting the divine majesty and power of God”).
7 But My People do not know The Ordinance of Yahuah (Eternally preserved in the stars Psalm 119:89, Psalm 89:2). 8 How can you say, We are wise men (h2450 chakam - 'astrologers' and know ‘the Secrets preserved in The Heavenly Scroll which men were striving to learn’ Enoch 6:9), And the Word of Yahuah's Testimony (that Yahusha is The Branch foretold in The Heavenly Scroll) is with us? But behold, the ‘lying pen of the scribes’ has made My Word (LOGOS / DABAR - 'Spoken Promise in the beginning' Eternally preserved in The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 119:89, Psalm 89:2) into a lie (by removing The Word of His Testimony). 9 The wise men (h2450 chakam – ‘astrologers’) are put to shame (for twisting The Heavenly Scroll into Incarnation the 'Mystery' of the Babylonian Zodiac), They are dismayed (by the constellations/stars/Sun to worship them Jeremiah 10:2 – "Do not learn the way of the nations (corrupted Babylonian Zodiac), and do not be dismayed at the Signs/constellations/stars of The Heavenly Scroll”) and caught (in idolatry Deuteronomy 4:19 – “When you look to the heavens and see the Sun, moon, and stars—all the stars in the sky—do not be led astray to bow in worship to them and serve them.”); 9 Behold, they have rejected the Word of My Testimony (The Heavenly Scroll), And what kind of wisdom (Spiritual Understanding of The Plan of Salvation written in the stars which proclaim The Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19:1, which is Yahusha Hebrews 1:3, and declare His Handiwork Psalm 19 and Enoch 35:3 and many more Scriptures) do they have (because the Scriptures are literally based on The Heavenly Scroll/Plan of Salvation/LOGOS written in the stars at Creation which is what Yahusha came to fulfill Hebrews 10:7 and Matithyahu/Matthew 6:10)?…
