The Word​

My faith is extremely important to me and is central to all components of my life. For three decades, beginning in the early 1990s, I have diligently studied and translated the manuscripts of the Judeo-Christian Bible.

I have always been particularly intrigued by the origin, existence, and eventual absence of miracles and healings administered by the early church, as depicted in the New Testament.

The scope of my study has included:

  • Philology as it relates to the evolution and relationships of Proto-Indo-European and Proto-Afro-Asiatic languages.
  • Religious culture and history.
  • Similarities and distinctions among Hebrews, Canaanites, Phoenicians, and peoples of Kemet.
  • Religious ideations of early Christian, Gnostic, and Coptic communities.

Some may wonder why any of this is relevant, let alone important. I consider this to be my calling in life, as it chose me more than I chose it. A New Testament scripture states that, “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” The problem exists in the fact that language is, and always has been, EVER-CHANGING. Every single word of the Judeo-Christian Bible is, at the very least, a translation of a translation of a translation of something that someone wrote about something someone else told them. Read that a few times and let it really sink in. In this alone, a message can easily become significantly distorted. Now factor in thousands of years of religious, political, and cultural influences that have shaped the spiritual texts and doctrines we know today.

I do not discount the prevalent gospel message preached in churches throughout America and abroad. However, my thirty years of objective research, study, and prayer has convinced me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it is only a silhouette of a more powerful message. I believe there is a greater revelation of God’s truth and Jesus’ ministry that will empower spirit-filled believers in ways not seen since the 1st and 2nd centuries. When Jesus spoke of the miracles he performed, he said, “greater than these shall you do.”

I believe Jesus’ prophetic words are as relevant today as they were in the day he spoke them.
