Yesterday I shared a powerful thing I was seeing about the possible ongoing crucifixion of God’s word due to there being 13,035 words in the original scriptures that were NOT TRANSLATED into ANY English words at all.
If you haven’t read that, please read it here. This message is a continuation of that one.
Did you know that at least 13,035 original words of scripture were not translated into ANY words at all? They were simply “overlooked”, ignored, and “abandoned”. Today, I hear more and it is shocking how God seems to be putting this all together into “one” in my mind.
Could there be a MUCH HIGHER and much more powerful truth at work here?
Please allow me to share what is coming to my mind and thoughts. But first, let me ask you a question.
What is “God’s Word”?
Is this God’s Word?
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 NIV
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” Genesis 1:1 KJV
In the beginning, God created the universe Genesis 1:1 ISV
In the beginning of God’s preparing the heavens and the earth Genesis 1:1 YLT
Which ONE of these is God’s true Word? They are all a little different, so only ONE can be God’s true Word, right?
Or is this one God’s Word? (in yellow below)
I believe the truth is that NONE of them are God’s true “Word”, but the one above in yellow is the very closest thing to God’s WRITTEN Word that we have. (I believe he writes the true Word on our hearts which by default are very hard “tablets of STONE”.) This is even if we don’t know exactly what it means. That’s the job of Jesus in our hearts to show us, isn’t it?
Only your own decision matters to you… and YOU get to decide for yourself. Here is a hint that I heard: “Do the above words in yellow ever change (as compared to translations)?”
So, why did we “overlooked”, “ignore” and “abandon” over 13,035 pieces of his written word?
Let’s look at Psalm 22:1-2.
My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?
Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning.
2 O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I have no rest Psalm 22:1-2
Do you recognize these words?
Aren’t they the words of Jesus on the cross when he was being crucified?
Let me as a rather insane question. Please play along with me a bit.
Is it possible that we are still doing this to Jesus now, the true Word of God (by not translating) so many original words?
Are we still “overlooking”, “ignoring” and “abandoned” him in at least 13,035 ways even today?
Who is the “truth” in John 14:6?
Who is the “WORD OF GOD” in John 1:1?
Is the “Word of God” a book we call “the Bible”?
Or is the TRUE “WORD of GOD” the living SON OF GOD who is an all-encompassing, hidden spiritual man who is revealed in the original scriptures God gave to us?
But, what if we ignored 13,035 “parts” of him?
Are we still “crucifying the very Word of God” (by ignoring the untranslated words)? Could the very words of Psalm 22 apply to us today if we are STILL crucifying the very “Word of God” (by ignoring a large part of it and him)?
But I am a worm and not a man,
A reproach of men and despised by the people.
7 All who see me sneer at me;
They separate with the lip, they wag the head, saying,
8 “Commit yourself to the Lord; let Him deliver him;
Let Him rescue him, because He delights in him.” Psalm 22:6-8
The phrase “separate with the lip” really stands out in my mind…
I also discovered there are hundreds if not thousands of others that are sometimes translated as something completely different in different locations. You can check this out yourself. I will show you how if you are interested. Since when does God’s word change? Did we forget that God and his Word is outside of time and doesn’t change? Mal 3:6, Matt 24:35, Psalm 89:34 When I ask this question, the first answer I will get back usually starts with “sometimes…it means this…“. There is our clue of what we have forgotten.
The very word “some….times“.
Did you see the “s” on the end?
We think God is confined to or inside of time where all change occurs! Aren’t his Words ETERNAL and UNCHANGING?
Sorry, I can’t accept that answer because his original words tell me otherwise. To me, if we continue in that belief, then we are only rationalizing away (either knowingly or unknowingly) our ongoing “crucifixion” of a large part of his “word”. Or would it be a circumcision?
Either way I think it’s a good idea to look into this and ask ourselves “what are we doing here?”
So, what is the truth? (Notice “truth” starts with “the“? As in single, whole, unbreakable, unchangeable…)
Does HE or his Word ever REALLY change? Does truth ever change?
Lets ask ourselves some questions and answer them with his scripture and our hearts.
First: “Is there one single word that God gives us that he will ever change or make void?”
Second: “Doesn’t every single word he gives us have a purpose?”
Third: “Does he or his word change?”
Fourth: “Aren’t his very words truth?”
Let’s look at John 17:7, Psalm 89:34, and Malachi 3:6. I believe they answer some of the questions.
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth John 17:7
God’s VERY WORD is truth. Does truth every change?
“My covenant I will not violate, Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips Psalm 89:34
Truth does not change, nor does God himself. Mal 3:6 confirms this and we know this in our hearts.
“For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed Mal 3:6
God DOES NOT CHANGE nor do his WORDS. Do you agree?
So, aren’t we “altering the utterance of his lips” when we ignore thousands of his words and change many others?
This may sound like a “rant” (and maybe it is a bit) but we can not even begin to see the true God and his immense love for us until we first realize we are NOT EVEN USING HIS ACTUAL WORDS he gave us! I am not here to “prove people wrong per se'”. I am here to try to help unveil the beauty of our father. But, what we currently “know” about him (and continue to be taught) is completely blocking that from occur.
It must ALL first come down.
This may Sting a bit. No, it WILL sting…
Please allow me to ask some VERY tough questions. The same ones I have asked and been convicted upon myself.
Please know that I have been convicted me in my own heart as guilty of what I am going to share.
Are we actually learning from the very words God gave us? Or are we learning from man’s “word”?
Is the “Bible” that we have today actually “the Word” that God gave us? Or is it possibly the “work of man’s hands” when he had to “translate” the ideas to us from the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek original words? Psalm 115:4, Deut 4:28, Psalm 135:15
Aren’t his original and true written words the ones on scrolls and are written in Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic?
What if we have been taught from the “traditions of man” all this time in trusting him to tell us what the original words mean?
Do you want to know what the FULL, ORIGINAL Words of scripture are including the untranslated ones?
I believe you do in your true heart.
I believe your heart is telling you that God really IS good and he really IS love for ALL of us and not just a select “few”. If so, I am with you my friend. I have been digging deeply for months and years now and have been finding immense nuggets of pure LIFE and pure “gold” in them. And I’d LOVE to share what I find with you so you can celebrate him with me.
I hope we don’t sneer at them (him!) and despise them (him!) by preferring our own version of the “Word of God” called the (translated) “Bible”. Wasn’t that really together by man’s hands and then (mis) translated further into hundreds of different languages and versions taking us further and further from his actual “words” and truth itself?
I suspect your heart wants to finally know the FULL unveiled truth (who IS JESUS) the LIVING Word and son of God revealed in the original Words God gave us.
Am I right?
If so, then maybe you will want to start TODAY finding out what God’s ACTUAL and TRUE words say?
We don’t want to continue the path we have been on, do we?
I know, I don’t. Isn’t that the path of crucifying him at least 13,035 times?
The WORDS WE CRUCIFIED and ARE CRUCIFYING
So, do you wonder what the 13,035 words are they we are still crucifying by omitting them? I hope you do because my heart does. They will amaze and astonish you as he reveals what they are. But, this can only occur after we are convicted of our part in his crucifixion. They convicted me. I wept for hours many times over at the part I played in his crucifixion and I STILL am crucifying him at times. I preferred my version of him instead of the true one he reveals, the one I could control and manipulate.
He broke me in a huge way and continues to break me daily when I “crawl back down off my cross” so to speak.
Let’s look into one of the oldest full codex’s of God’s ORIGINAL SCRIPTURE Words called the “Westminster-Leningrad Codex with vowel signs”. A “codex” is a collection of all the original scrolls compiled into a single book. The original Words were written on many different scrolls in the original languages. A “codex” is a copied collection of the original words of scripture compiled into a single “book”. It would be the equivalent of a “Bible” but only with the actual original scripture words in as close to their original, pristine state as possible.
They aren’t PERFECT as they were still a “collection” from different languages and times, but they are the closest thing we have in order to begin to see the true LIVING Word (Christ) inside us.
In the transcripts these words that are ignored and overlooked are simply labeled as >> or two “greater than signs“.
Ponder that one thing “greater than“. Man removed the “greater-than”. Is he (you and I) still doing that today?
Are we sometimes STILL forgetting that he is “greater than” us? I know I do and have to be reminded…
Lets see the words we have been and still are “crucifying”.

THE 13,035 crucified Words Of God
After looking at the possible translations of all the missing and omitted words, does the name “Emanuel” ring a bell? You know, “God with us”… Matt 1:23, Isaiah 9:6, Isaiah 7:14
Is it possible God (Jesus) and the new covenant has ALWAYS been “WITH” us but even the original scripture writers couldn’t understand that concept or maybe they didn’t have word for “God with us”?
That is what I see my friend. And it’s so powerful. I can share with you Jesus and God the father in the ENTIRE original scripture words from Genesis 1:1 to the end of THE Revelation. He is hidden in the “two” of everything that appears from front to back.
Life and Death placed before you
However, before we can see him we have a huge dilemma placed before us.
Which “word” is true?
The one that is missing 13,035 original words and then further cut up and divided into many languages and THEN further into translations and called the “Bible”. Or is the true “Word of God” the original Word as God gave to us and revealed in the original untranslated scripture “words” and also as the living Word within you?
Let’s go back to Psalm 22.
In You our fathers trusted;
They trusted and You delivered them Psalm 22:4
Where did the fathers end up? John 6:49 Did they “fall in the wilderness” because they didn’t truly trust God’s word?
I pray you will hear his voice today my friend. I pray we will all stop crucifying him and start listening for his voice and following it.
