[TBC: The Passion Translation isnot a translation, but another paraphrase similar to The Message. Authored by Brian Simmons, this publication reflects many of the New Apostolic Reformation teachings he follows. See: https://www.thebereancall.org/content/passion-translation-author-s-heretical-views-about-christ-s-return. Further, in a Sid Roth Interview (posted Apr 3, 2018), Simmons states that Jesus promised to call him up to heaven where he will be given an additional chapter of the gospel of John that to this day has never yet been revealed. That would be “John chapter 22.”]
To the contrary, "Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." (Proverbs:30:5-6).
Here is the transcription of this segment of the Sid Roth/Brian Simmons interview beginning at 30 minutes and 23 seconds :
Sid Roth – "Also, in 2009 Jesus enters the room you’re in and gives you an assignment. Tell me what that was."
Brian Simmons – "What a wonderful night that was. Again, I was in my room and the presence of the Lord became tangible, heavy, thick, so powerful that I slipped out of bed and knelt there by my bed and the One I love came.
"And, uh, commissioned me. He says I’m commissioning you to do this translation project. And He breathed on me. Just blew His breath on me. I’ll never forget that experience.
"And He promised me that, that He would give me help, that He would stand with me and give me secrets of the Hebrew language, secrets of the Bible that would be for this Last Days awakening."
Sid Roth – "And that was the beginning of The Passion Translation project.Did He tell you the name of the Bible?"
Brian Simmons – "No he didn’t. He just–"
Sid Roth – "So where’d you come up with the words, Passion Translation?"
Brian Simmons – "Well, years ago, I saw an angel in our church meeting and the Lord spoke to me, not audibly but internally and said that angel is with your ministry, it’s the angel of passion."
