I love God and my promise family and my husband and daughter and son. I work as a supervisor in the records department of a sheriff’s office. I love the Mirror translation. I grew up in a Lutheran church and have a background full of a lot of ‘dutiful’ study of the Bible that was done out of feeling like I had to do it for God to love me. With the current revelation of my identity and not having to work to please God, I had a hard time picking up the Bible without getting the old feelings of ‘having’ to do it to earn His favor. The Mirror translation is exactly what I needed to break the old mindset and remind me of my identity and reignite my desire to read His word. Thank you so much for listening to Him and bringing this word to us!
I have been listening to you Internet messages for about 6 months. Your interpretation is thus far the most eloquent and descriptively beautiful of which I have the pleasure to experience. I listen regularly to Paul White in MO but when I need to see the unveiled beauty of God for a complete washing of my Spirit, I come to Mirrorword. Thank you for the refreshment of my soul! God bless your ministry and your lives as you have blessed mine!
I have been a Christian for over 40 years and reading the Mirror Translation has been truly amazing!! I now use it to teach a small group of new and long time Christians. These women are now being uplifted and transformed by God’s revelation of how they are the Mirror image of Him. We are so thankful that God has given us this translation to “simmer” in. Back to the basics, I say, but God’s basics are so rich with “Snuggle up to the warm embrace of God, EXPERIENCE His closeness to you.” (James 4:7 Mirror) Thank You Francois!!
This great on-going work of excellent scholarship has done more for all our gatherings, small groups, church meetings and just personal enrichment than anything I have seen in all my years. This should be available for the world to have… Francois’ style is unmistakable and grace is revealed in such brilliant forms that I still have my breath taken away when impressed by Holy Spirit over a certain section while teaching or studying.
…Recently I discovered Pastor Mike Miller in Ft. Collins, CO. During the last message that I had watched, he made reference to the Mirror Bible. During a previous message from a guest speaker at Mike’s church, the speaker Baxter Kruger made reference to Francois and his working on the Mirror Bible. I was led to this website and have since purchased the Mirror Bible and my heart is burning within me from the understanding that is being made known to me. I can’t stop smiling. I want to drench myself in this beautiful message and share it with everyone… Thank you SO very much for sharing the language of God which is His beautiful Son—Jesus!
I feel I am getting a fresh new taste of scripture through work like yours and my Spirit resonates with how your translation has been written. I attend a small church called One Community Church in Dillon, Colorado and my Pastor is using your translation in our current teachings on Awakening.
I was irrevocably changed at the end of my senior year in high school, overrun by the love of God and Christ’s work on the cross. I come from a catholic background so my theology and understanding of the word was pretty weak when I first got nailed (my initial conversion experience). I started listening to a few preachers and eventually meandered my way to John Crowder and Ben Dunn last winter. I haven’t been to catholic mass in months and have not been able to find a church group that really preaches the stuff you translate so well in your Mirror Translation so I started getting together with some friends and we just go through grace and theology and stuff together. I got the Amplified translation last fall and it rocked me. It wasn’t until about two months ago that I heard about the Mirror translation, this thing is awesome! I use your translation for Romans 6 almost every time I refer to that chapter (which happens to be a lot). We’re seeing a whole ecstatic/grace centered/finished works movement start here at Tufts University, where I am a sophomore. The dry, religious Christian fellowship on campus is getting shaken upside down. It’s really fun and incredible to see. Every time I read from the Mirror translation, which happens to be pretty frequently, people respond pretty crazily with giggles, shouts and “WHERE DID YOU GET THAT TRANSLATION?!?!?”‘s on a regular basis. It’s awesome and I’m excited to see you’re continuing work on it. Thank you for your efforts, you have no idea how much it has helped me and my friend come to a deeper revelation of truth and the gospel. I thank the Lord for people like you who are continually paving the way for a new generation to rise up into the radical realization of our destiny as sons of the Most High! Thank you and may you continue enjoying your rest in the Lord! 🙂
I am a former missionary who became a schoolteacher after becoming frustrated with the business of religion. I have been searching for years to find the free and liberating truth of the real gospel. Through various teachers, and in particular John Crowder, I feel like I begun to understand what my heart has longed for so many years. Recently I’ve been greatly impacted by your ministry and that of others like Rabe. I feel like I have finally discovered what my heart has always longed for. Thank you for your ministry of life and declaration of who we are in Christ.
I have been in church all of my life, and just turning 30, I realized the fear and anxiety I had about my position as a Christian. I became insatiable in studying and researching the truth that would make me free from mysticism and other mind manipulation tools, but I was still missing my identity. My pastor has been using the Mirror translation at church, and my heart was melting with relief and hope. I knew there was so much more for me, so much more to believe about myself and the passion God has for me. I feel like I am experiencing an entirely new God.
I love the Mirror translation, I am pastoring my first church and preaching the finished work of the cross. I received it through revelation, and it greatly challenged the Pentecostal church I was in. It has always been my message, I asked Father to get me a place to teach the truth to people and He removed me, “He made me a minister” and then placed me in a small church.
I often preach for a couple of hours and we usually feel it’s an hour, but the supernatural life-giving message is music to the hearts of the hurting. I am continually ministering to many people that are messed up by sin conscious religion—they are growing rapidly. I was greatly encouraged to find others preaching the same message; it’s great to see you acknowledge the faith “of” the Son of God. God bless you for your bold passion and declaration of the glorious gospel.
