A Brain Teaser

A Brain Teaser for you… 

What nine-letter word in the English language is still a word when each of the nine letters is removed one by one? 

Note: It is not a case of starting at one end or the other and removing letters one by one, however they also cannot be taken randomly from any place in the word. 

Take a few minutes to try to come up with a nine-letter word that fits the bill… then if needed watch the attached Audio below.


Here is some Clues for you …

1.The last three letters left talk about why we need Jesus Christ,

 2. One of the other words tell us what His Sacrifice took away from death

 3. Another word expresses that because of it what we feel like doing,

 4. The starting word could be used as a way of expressing His Love for us, which was the Start of everything anyway and of which He is the Star, and so are we when we are in Him.

 5. We are no longer alone, which leaves us in wonder as we intently  focus on Him.

 I’m not stringing you along all these Clues are important. 

 “So do you need to watch the Audio, or can you figure it out?”

“Well I had to watch the Audio because I couldn’t work out the Starting word, sometimes we do need help don’t you agree?” But who do we Trust someone who makes up the word by their own logic, reasoning and understanding or the One who inspired the True Word,

 Think about it, this one you can work out for yourself, but if you need help you know Who to ask… now that is a Clue!

  1. Looks like we ran out of space . . .

    Congrats! I *KNEW* you could do it with a little help. Yes, it was a plane crash and the bodies were in the cabin of the plane.

    Thanks for the link. I’ve bookmarked it and will have a look when I get a bit of time. I’m a bit rushed now.

    This is really good Anne, thanks for the share my friend 🙂


  3. I love brain teasers where thinking outside the box is necessary. I also love CRYPTIC crosswords (people say you have to have a weird mind to do them) and wordplay puzzles.
    This puzzle would have had me stumped without the clues which gave a starting point . . . sin, sting, string etc.
    Thanks Anne for a happy few minutes.

      Great Angela now I know what to look for, it seems your another clever boots like Ron but I got him in the end with this one … I won Wow! now it’s your turn, lets see if I can stump you and I am persistant it’s taken 30 years with Ron but I made it.

      Out to stump you – Annie


      • Anne, here is one you can try on Ron. It is an old one and well known, so he may already know it.
        A group of men were walking through a dense forest when they came upon a cabin. Inside the cabin they found two dead bodies. How did they die? [There is enough information here to solve it]


        • Freedomborn says:

          Hi Angela you done it, you stumped Ron and you didn’t even have to try for 30 years, below is his answer… I think they were dead because the forest was so dense they couldn’t get out of the Cabin from inside because the door was blocked off which means they starved to death…. Yuk what a horrible thought!

          Ron’s Answer … Cant answer it ,dont know , something to do with bodies ,if its a body it must be dead, also dense forest, good one.

          Love from both of us.


          • No Anne. That is not the case. Remember this is a logic problem where you need to think outside the box.
            Hints: There were no weapons involved. There was no poison. It wasn’t murder and suicide. There was no sign of a fight occuring. Think about the clues given in the puzzle. It is there and very clear.

            Do you want me to give you the answer or do you want to try again?


            • Freedomborn says:

              Hi Angela, no I didn’t think there were any weapons involved. or poison or murder or suicide or a fight … just starvation because they couldn’t get out of the cottage, but perhaps not, so you will just have to let me know and I will think up another one for you and keep going till I stump you even if it takes 30 years like it did with Ron.

              Determined Annie.

    Sent it to my whole family plus this one


    • Freedomborn says:

      Thank you Camery1996 I hope your family are blessed by both – good message in yours but I like to approve Audio first before it is attached to my Blog, I’m ok about links, reblogs, pingbacks although I’m sure like you do, I check them and if not suitable delete them, and we have contol of these if we don’t want to receive them at all but not so with just stopping Audio and it has a very differant impact both with storage and message although yours was good, if I allow one, others will do the same and it could get out of control but if you want to share one with me please e-mail me I would appreciate it, my details are in my About.

      Christian Love Anne.
