All articles and research about GOD, on my web sites and this blog are about the ONE TRUE Father GOD, who is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

As are all my articles and research about Jesus, are under His covenant name of the begotten Son’s personal name of Yeshua.

It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what's on my websites, but rather to share my research.
As the record goes. I'm Just a soul who's intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are THE God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15.

DOES Revelation 3:14 say ‘Jesus the RULER of GOD’S creation?’ or ‘Jesus, the BEGINNING of GOD’S creation?’

DOES Revelation 3:14 say ‘Jesus the RULER of GOD’S creation?’ or ‘Jesus, the BEGINNING of GOD’S creation?’

“And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.

If you read on, you’ll learn how this SINGLE scripture proves that MOST denominations have been deceived. However, my main research for this article has been concerning Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship.


Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship.

Mr Buzzard himself told me that he is an ‘Adventist of our type since 1850’ (we are, of course, NOT SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS)  and he rightly teaches us that the TRINITY is false, something that you can very easily discover for yourselves by searching through the scriptures – once you start digging deeper, you can easily see that the scriptures used to support the Trinity are clearly taken out of context, misunderstood, or are sometimes false translations – and even forgeries. Not everyone knows this, however, as most Trinitarians believe only what their pastors teach them, instead of doing their own research and believing what is taught by the oldest Greek Bibles, which clearly reveal that there is NO Trinity taught from the beginning to the end – from the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last.

But, on the other hand, why is Professor Anthony Buzzard also teaching a very odd theory that Jesus never existed before Mary? Especially when his bizarre teachings contradict countless scriptures throughout the Bible, which clearly teach that the world was created THROUGH Jesus and that He was sent by GOD, and that He came down from Heaven, which even the rebellious Jews understood, who repeated the very words Jesus said Himself:

They said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know?
 How does he now say,
‘I have come down from heaven’?”
John 6:42.


Most of the Early Church Fathers did not believe in the Trinity, and yet believed Jesus was the very FIRST BORN Son of GOD to exist before all creation, who came down from heaven (See link below) Were they all wrong?

Surely, if Jesus was like us humans (who didn’t exist before coming from our mother’s womb), and so never existed before Mary, and only first came into existence in Mary’s womb, then Jesus could never have come down from Heaven before He was born in Mary's womb in the first place – that is, if it is true that He did not already exist ‘before’ he became flesh.

The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. 1 Corinthians 15:47.

And yet we now find ourselves with a new generation of Christians who teach that Jesus never came down from Heaven at all, and that He was just like us – BORN in our mother’s womb – despite the countless scriptures teaching the exact opposite.

31 He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. 33 Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. 34 For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand. 36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. John 3:36.

‘Sir Anthony’ continually stresses that he’s a Bible scholar, and with 50 years’ scholarly experience and a wide array of impressive letters after his name, he says we have good reason to believe him.

And yet the most I’ve learned from Bible scholars is how they can’t agree with what they themselves teach. In fact, it’s hard to find two Bible scholars who actually agree with each other at all. So, which Bible scholar should we believe over any others?

This is why I believe it’s so important to do our own research and to be a Berean Jew, which is what the Bible teaches. Acts 17:11.


Thanks to our great GOD, already knowing false teachers and preachers would breed, thrive, and flourish like rabbits.

GOD Almighty is kindly helping us to overcome the abundant deceivers in these last days by making it possible for all who desire to know the truth, to be able to inspect ourselves and examine the oldest Greek manuscripts.


By seeing and examining the oldest Greek Bibles we can put all modern Bible translations including preachers and teachers to the test, and simply pluck out the many false ones, and expose them.

Without having to rely on others to determine who is right or wrong. Now we can read them for ourselves and make our own minds up.


Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not become partners with them; 8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. Ephesians 5:

And that’s what I’m about to demonstrate in this study: that in these last days we do not need to be a Bible scholar at all, but instead we can just be any ordinary person off the street, just as long as we have a good pair of glasses to see and read the actual Greek words written by the very hands of the scribes themselves, nearly 2000 years ago.

But what about people like Mr Buzzard, who says that because he is a Bible scholar, we should therefore believe everything he says, including his odd theory that Jesus never came down from Heaven, and was not much different to a prophet? Well, as Mr Buzzard sent me emails telling me that my translation of Revelation 3:14 was false, he gave me the perfect opportunity to study his scholarly work, while testing my own.


 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. 
1 John 4:1.

If you missed my article last week – and are therefore a little confused right now – please let me explain. Last week I presented the evidence of Jesus saying: He was the TRUE witness and the beginning of God’s creation. Read here:

You see, because of what Jesus said in this single unique scripture of Revelation 3:14, His impressive words proved countless teachings to be false, which sadly happens to be the teachings of MOST denominations.

But, just as interesting is what I said at the ‘beginning’ of my article: that the Bible we hold in our hands today is full of false, twisted, and even clear forgeries, because of the biased and prejudiced minds of certain modern translators, who twist the scriptures to make them fit with what they believe instead of what they truly teach, in which I am about to show and demonstrate.

Well, I have to say I was truly overwhelmed to receive a number of emails from Professor Anthony Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship, and I am now going to prove what I already said by showing just how Bible scholars such as Professor Anthony Buzzard use false translations in order to deceive people from the truth.

I know that Mr Buzzard also believes many of the modern Bible translations to be wrong and deceiving, but I certainly wasn’t expecting him to send me emails saying that my own translation was false, and that Jesus did not say He was: the beginning of God’s creation, in Revelation 3:14.

But how could my translation of Revelation 3:14 be false? Because I know I was wearing my glasses, and therefore could see clearly as I did what we should all do: translate directly from the oldest Bibles on the planet.
Revelation 3:14, Codex Vaticanus, translated by Simon Brown.

Yet, instead Sir Anthony Buzzard claimed that in Revelation 3:14 Jesus actually said: He is the RULER of GOD’S creation.

Now, if his claim is true, and the simple word ‘Leader’ or ‘Ruler’ is the correct word – having been changed from the word BEGINNING – then Revelation 3:14 saying (of Jesus) that He is the RULER of GOD’S creation, would prove Mr Buzzard’s scholarly work to be correct, showing that he is at least being honest.


Revelation 3:14. NIV. Ruler. True or False?

As we can clearly see, the simple word ‘Ruler’ alters the whole context and meaning of what Jesus was saying.

Now, please follow my research as we carefully examine the Biblical facts and see if the scribes defined the difference between Arche, Leader, or Ruler, and the word ‘BEGINNING’.

First let us have a look at the scriptures Sir Anthony Buzzard claimed to be the correct translations (as we read, please note that these modern translations use the word ‘Originator’ or ‘Ruler’).



This now changes the whole context, taking us away from the understanding that Jesus was the FIRST BORN and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.


 Revelation 3:14.

Sir Anthony Buzzard.

So, let’s now put Sir Anthony Buzzard’s scholarly work to the test, and see if he could be as good as he claims; if we discover that he’s made even one mistake, then he himself is proving to us with his own hands that his own scholarly work has serious academic faults (or, alternatively, that he is simply being dishonest).

If there’s one mistake – or any evidence of dishonesty at all – he will be proving to us that there could be many more mistakes, which would also prove that he’s no different to any others who use wrong and false translations to wrongly support and promote their own false teachings.

John 1:1. Codex Vaticanus.

First, notice the word ‘Beginning’. Then, note the scriptures that Mr Buzzard claims are the correct translations. 



Now, let’s pull out some different scriptures for both – the Greek word for Ruler, and the Greek word for Beginning – and compare them with each other.
























----------------------------------------------------------------
What have we discovered in this article? 

As St Paul taught in 1 Thessalonians 5:21:
but test everything.

We have seen a very important Biblical fact. We have carefully examined the different Greek words for ‘Beginning’ 


And ‘Ruler’ to determine whether in Revelation 3:14 Jesus was saying He is the Leader or Ruler of GOD’S creation, or if Jesus was saying He is the Beginning of GOD’S creation or, alternatively, if Jesus was saying He is the witness to the Beginning of GOD’s creation.



We have also discovered that the oldest Greek Bibles prove the Biblical FACTS.


My examination reveals that in this case, the Trinitarian translations are correct, which adds up to why most modern translations have translated Revelation 3:14 with the word ‘Beginning’, and NOT ‘Leader’ or ‘Ruler’, proving that most agree that the translation for the word ‘Beginning’ is correct.



The oldest Greek Bibles prove that certain new translations (see below) are completely FALSE translations, and these Bibles also prove that certain new translations have been twisted by BIASED people in order to promote their false teachings.




In certain cases, ‘Arche’ could also mean ‘Ruler’, as they both share the same semantic subdomain with ‘Archon’. However, in this case – as we have seen during careful examination – my research proves that the scribes CLEARLY defined the difference.

Arche can easily mean Ruler, and Jesus is indeed the ruler of the New Creation, just as we read in Revelation 1:5. However, just as we read in Revelation 3:14, the scribes clearly defined the difference with the Greek word for ‘Ruler’ and ‘Beginning’.

Also, the oldest Greek Bibles prove that people like Anthony Buzzard are NOT translating the Greek manuscripts correctly and are instead clearly using FALSE translations in order to promote their FALSE teachings.

Please notice how the translators of the two oldest Bibles – the Codex Sinaiticus, and the Codex Vaticanus – uniquely specify the DIFFERENCE between the two Greek words of (ἄρχων) for a ‘Ruler’ and the GREEK word (ἀρχὴ) for the ‘Beginning’ in Revelation 3:14.




In adding the GREEK word (ἀρχὴ) for ‘Beginning’ in Revelation 3:14, this uniquely defines Jesus as saying: the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.

The scribes of the two oldest Bibles clearly and uniquely defined the DIFFERENCE between Revelation 3:14 and Revelation 1:5 with two DIFFERENT Greek words:




1. Revelation 3:14 uses the GREEK word (ἀρχὴ) for ‘Beginning’.


And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.
And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. Revelation 3:14.

2. Revelation 1:5 uses the Greek word (ἄρχων) for ‘a ruler’, with the translators rightly having added in the Greek word for Jesus in Revelation 1:5.

























So, how does this single scripture prove that MOST denominations have been deceived by false translations?


1. If Jesus is saying He is the beginning of God’s creation, or He is the witness to His GOD’s creation, then this proves that MOST of the Christian population are deceived, because Jesus’s own words prove He did not always exist, that he was NOT the creator Himself, and that he was NOT equal with His GOD, as the TRINITY faith both believe and teach.

2. Again, if Jesus is saying either of the above, this also proves that Jesus is NOT His own Father GOD, because as Jesus clearly testifies, He was WITH His GOD at creation, proving they are TWO separate beings and NOT one (or the same being), which in turn proves the PENTECOSTAL faith to be deceived and false, as they believe that GOD and Jesus are one and the same being.

3. Again, If Jesus is saying either of the above, Jesus Himself also proves that He existed before Mary, in turn proving that another fast-growing faith of the ‘Adventist type since 1850’ (with Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard) is deceived and false.

WHY, then, are nice people like Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard of the Restoration Fellowship using FALSE translations in order to promote their FALSE teachings?
Well, to simply deceive people into believing their own false teachings that Jesus never existed before Mary.

We have clearly seen how the scribes themselves have proved with their own hands that the correct Greek word in Revelation 3:14 is indeed: The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.

The Biblical FACTS prove that Jesus was indeed saying in Revelation 3:14, He: the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.

This proves that Jesus certainly did exist before Mary, and that He was indeed the FIRST BORN of all creation, completely agreeing with St Paul in Colossians 1:15, John 1:1, John 1:3, Hebrews 1:2, and countless other scriptures.

On closer examination, my research proves that Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard’s teachings – saying that Jesus did NOT exist before Mary – are COMPLETELY FALSE, by this single examination of just one scripture in Revelation 3:14 which prove the Biblical facts.




This is also PROVED by the very words of Jesus Himself in the single verse of Revelation 3:14, when Jesus said He is: The faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.

Although it took Sir Anthony Farquhar Buzzard over 50 years to work out his Biblical theories, believing and teaching that Jesus did NOT exist before Mary, this single Biblical fact – with regards to these amazing words of Jesus’s own in Revelation 3:14 – on its own, and without even considering COUNTLESS other scriptures, proves and completely destroys Mr Buzzard’s theory in mere seconds.

This examination also proves that we cannot always trust people who teach that they are Bible scholars and experts, because as we have seen in this case, with their own hands they themselves often prove themselves wrong.

But, instead, all one needs to do is simply invest in a good pair of glasses.

On the one hand, Mr Buzzard correctly teaches that the TRINITY is indeed false, and there are many twisted scriptures people use to support this, which can easily be seen and proved by going directly to the Greek manuscripts.


1 John 5:7. The GREATEST Trinitarian FORGERY In History.

And by reading how Jesus Himself did NOT declare in this single scripture in John 17:3 to be GOD,
 but ONLY His Father.

John 17:3. Jesus said His Father is THE ONLY ONE TRUE GOD and NOT THREE as taught in the CATHOLIC TRINITY.


On the other hand, we can easily see here a perfect example of how Mr Buzzard is simply doing exactly the same deception as the denominations he criticises, by also using false and twisted scriptures in order to deceive people and promote his false teachings that Jesus did not exist before Mary.


He (Jesus) was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. John 1:10. 

This sad statement by St John still seems to be very much the case in the world today, with millions claiming to know the true Jesus, when they in fact prove with their own hands that they believe and follow a false Jesus. Two thousand years later, MOST of the world still does NOT know him. Maybe that’s why Jesus said: Many are called, but FEW are chosen. Matthew 22:14.

Conclusion

Hebrews 12:2 sums up this whole study in one word, explaining everything about Jesus using the single Greek word (ἀρχηγός) – this is the spiritual meaning describing who Jesus is, and so the significant information, revelation, nature, of Jesus can therefore be found in ONE Greek word. This word is a magical combination of meanings.


The scribe’s hand is revealing, making it evident that Jesus is the FIRST ‘being’ in EVERYTHING. Therefore, the BEGINNING in EVERYTHING. Jesus is the FIRST and the BEGINNING of EVERYTHING that ever EXISTED. FIRST born Son of GOD. FIRST born in the world. FIRST born from the dead. FIRST perfect Leader and Saviour. Amen.


Notice how Colossians above agrees with Hebrews 1:2 below?
