The name that jews HATE more than anything and have dedicated to blotting out from human memory is "Jesus". A jew will do ANYTHING to keep us from using that word. Many who read Pastor Ted Weiland's following analysis of "The Sacred Names" were convinced that the KJV version of the Holy Bible contains more than 6,000 instances of blasphemy because the name "YHWH" was not "preserved". For Christians to say "YHWH" rather than "God" and "yahshuah" rather than "Jesus" made jews exceedingly happy--reason alone to NOT use such words.
What was it about the use of the word "yahweh" by Christians that made the jews jump for joy? It's a reference to their moon god );
J. B. Rotherham asked the following valid question in the introduction to the Emphasized Bible: "Men's names are throughout the Scriptures fraught with significance, enshrining historical incidents, biographical reminiscences, and so forth; and why should the Name of the Ever Blessed be an exception to this rule?" 1
THE FATHER'S NAME
In Exodus 23:13 we are commanded not to mention the names of other gods; however, because of what the modern English translators have done with our Bibles, it is the name of our God that is seldom, if ever, mentioned by the majority of our people. The King James Version of the Holy Bible renders the Third Commandment as follows:
However, that is not how God's Holy Spirit intended for it to be written. The inspired Third Commandment is as follows:
Making Vain the Name
The four letters YHWH (pronounced Yahweh) were inspired by God's Holy Spirit to appear in the Old Testament over 6,800 times. Then why can it not be found in our common English versions except where it appears in an abbreviated form at the end of the word Halleluyah?
The English translators on their own volition replaced God's name with something entirely different. What arrogance! What God inspired, no human translator has the right to change or remove, no matter how good the excuse sounds. King Solomon declared:
Yet that is exactly what most English translators did. They took away and added to God's Word by replacing His personal name Yahweh with the capital letters LORD and GOD or with the hybrid word Jehovah.
In perverting the text, the English translators actually broke the Third Commandment since they made the name vain, that is, of none effect The word vain, as found in the Third Commandment, is translated from the Hebrew word shav (Strong's #7723). William Gesenius defines it in part as "emptiness, nothingness, vanity ... worthlessness."(2) It is the same word used by Moses in the Ninth Commandment translated false:
In other words, we are not to use God's name falsely or bear false witness to it by replacing it with misleading titles and uninspired substitutions.
It has been declared that the Third Commandment has nothing to do with the literal name of God, but rather with the authority of His name. Authority is intrinsic to the Third Commandment; however, it remains impossible to exclude God's personal name from this commandment. For example, a Roman soldier's authority was in the name of Caesar, however, had he presented himself in the name of Nebuchadnezzar, his authority would have been nullified.
Consider the following emphasis that God Himself put on His name:
Consequently, we have been charged to remember, to commemorate and to memorialize His name. Yet, most modern translators have done just the opposite and have nearly wiped God's sacred name from the memory of His people.
After admitting that "While it is almost if not quite certain that the Name was originally pronounced 'Yahweh,'" the translators of the Revised Standard Version provide the following excuse for the elimination of God's personal name from the Scriptures:
What audacity! What gives any man or any group of men the right to overrule God? God alone knows best what is and what is not appropriate for the Christian Church.
The editorial board of the New American Standard Bible made the following admission:
But what the Jews pronounce, or do not pronounce, has nothing to do (or should have nothing to do) with what God inspired in His Word.
The Smith and Goodspeed translation is probably the most frank:
In light of Matthew 15:3, there is no excuse for what the English translators did:
THE SAVIOR'S NAME
Let us now direct our attention to the New Testament and the name of our Savior. Following are seven reasons for using the Hebrew name Yahshua in lieu of the English name Jesus:
The Memorial Name
God chose Yahweh or its shortened form Yah to be His memorial name to all generations - Exodus 3:15. Only the name Yahshua memorializes that name.
The Name Above All Names
The Son's name is the name above all names - Ephesians 1:20-21; Philippians 2:9. But what name specifically is above all other names?
Since the name above all names is Yahweh, only Yahshua can be the Savior's name.
A More Excellent Name
The Son inherited a more excellent name - Hebrews 1:4. From where did the Son inherit His name? From the Father, of course. Consequently, He could only inherit from the Father what the Father Himself possessed. Did the Father possess the name Jesus or Yahshua? The answer seems quite apparent especially when one keeps in mind that the Father is addressed by the abbreviated name Yah forty-nine times in the Old Testament (Psalm 68:4; etc.), which can only be found in the Hebrew name Yahshua.
The Son to Come in the Name of Yahweh
Our Savior manifested or made known, the Father's name while here on earth - John 17:6, 26. In only three New Testament passages do we find the Son actually introducing Himself. The first time is found in the account of the Apostle Paul's conversion in Acts 9. The second and third times are found where Paul was recounting the same event in Acts 22 and 26. One of those accounts informs us in what language the Savior manifested His name to Paul:
Had the Savior used the English name Jesus, He would not have been manifesting the Father's name.
Since the family name Yah is found in both the Father's and the Son's name, Yahshua could appropriately say: "I am come in My Father's name...." (John 5:43)
In John 12:12-13, certain Jerusalem residents proclaimed:
This is a quotation from Psalm 118:26 in which the tragrammaton (the Hebrew letters YHWH) was substituted with the uninspired words "the LORD." In other words, in fulfillment of this Old Testament prophecy, those Israelites were proclaiming the Messiah as having come in the name of Yahweh. Only in the name of Yahshua could it be said that the Savior came in the name of Yahweh.
The Son's Name Was To Mean "Yahweh Saves"
When Mary was pregnant with the Son of God, Joseph was told to give her offspring a name that meant: "he [Yahweh] shall save his people." (Matthew 1:21) The English name Jesus does not fulfill that (as it has no meaning in any language, being a Greek/Latin hybrid); however, that is precisely what Yahshua means. Yahshua in Strong's Concordance is #3091 which is defined as coming from #3068 - Yahweh, and from #3467 - yasha, which means "to save.(6) " Together Yahweh and yasha, or Yahshua, means Yahweh saves.
New Testament Baptism was to be in The Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
From the evidence provided in the book of Acts, we know that the disciples did not baptize using the formula "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19). Rather they baptized in one specific name - Acts 2:38, etc., a name that accurately represented all three. What name fulfills the conditions of the Great Commission? What choices do we have for the Father's name? There are no Greek or English equivalents for the Father's name, LORD and GOD are not names but are titles and Jehovah is a 16th century hybrid corruption. On the other hand, it is known that God's personal name is Yahweh - shortened to Yah forty-nine times in the Old Testament.
What choices do we have for the Son's name? Given the options of Iesous (Greek), Jesus (English) or Yahshua (Hebrew), which of the three can also be used for the Father and the Holy Spirit? Only Yahshua.
The Apostle Paul quoting Joel 2:32 (properly translated) declared:
How does one call upon the name of Yahweh? In only one place in the New Testament are we told how this is accomplished:
Just three days prior, the Savior had manifested His name to the Apostle Paul in Hebrew as Yahshua. So what name do you suppose Paul was immersed in or that he called upon in fulfillment of Joel 2:32 and Romans 10:13? The name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! The name Yahshua!
The Deity of Yahshua
Lastly, and most importantly, the Hebrew pronunciation of our Savior's name should be used since the deity of Yahshua is proven therein. If the Hebrew names had been left intact in the Scriptures, it would be much more difficult, if not impossible, for a person to be persuaded against the deity of Yahshua the Christ.
Consider the Old Testament prophecies regarding Yahweh that were attributed to Yahshua. For example, whose way was John the Baptist to prepare? Who was to be betrayed for thirty pieces of silver? Whose side was to be pierced? Who was the stone that the builders rejected, and who was to become the chief corner stone? If your answer to these questions is Jesus, you had better look at those prophecies again! In those passages **, the tetragrammaton was removed and replaced with the words "the LORD." Restore God's personal name YHWH and it becomes immediately apparent that those prophecies were about Yahweh fulfilled in Yahshua.
Not only that, but when we use the Hebrew name of our Savior, it clearly describes not simply what some man is doing or what some prophet is doing or even what another god is doing. It describes what the GOD of gods, the great I Am, what YAHWEH is doing! Our Savior was named in Hebrew Yahshua because it means Yahweh saves. Additionally, our Savior was named in Hebrew Immanuel, meaning God with us, which testifies to the same.
THESE SEVEN REASONS (AND MORE ***) REVEAL THAT THE HEBREW NAMES YAHWEH AND YAHSHUA SHOULD BE OUR PREFERRED CHOICE.
**Isaiah 40:3; Zechariah 11:12-13; Zechariah 12:1, 10; Psalm 118:19-22.

[Editor's Note: as if the above is not insulting enough to we, the descendants of the Israelites, who are NOT jews, Strong's Concordance defines "Jesus" thusly:
In other words, even the authors of the concordances used by "Christians" had so little respect for the authority of Yahshua that they used a name which was shared by "two (three) other Israelites". Their only saving grace is that they correctly referred to Yahshua as an Israelite rather than "jew"--which would have been the utter blasphemy.]

Acts 4:12 Defines One Salvation Name
A study on the name JESUS the only name for Salvation
Some claim that it is!
The name "Moses" strikes us as the identity of one of the greatest men in ancient monotheistic history. His name is known by little children in the story of the mother and father who hid their little son to keep the wicked Pharoah from having him aborted, ...killed at birth. They hid him in the flags (bulrushes). Now the name flags is another name for papyrus pap-yrus (pap-irus) with the "us" having some connection with that which grows in water.
As can be seen to the left, the Egyptian word for water is "mu." And when the daughter of Pharoah took Moses out of the water she called him in the Egyptian language "MOUSES" or as later Grecianized "Moseus" and finally as "Moses." We are told by ancient authorities that the name Moses means just as I have described with "Mo" meaning "water" and "Uses" meaning he who is saved by water. Moseus is more accurately Museus when we convert the Mo back to Mu. If we drop the "M" and replace this with a "J" we would have Juseus and this is remarkable since Moses prophecied that another would come like unto him and he the people were to follow or be destroyed. We can see that "Mo" is accurately taken from the Egyptian "mu" and we shall make all the authorities who claim expertise in ancient linguistics to deny that "uses" is the correct ancient articulation of "ses or sus." I will here quote one of the recognized ancient authorities on the antiquity of the Jews:
It it obvious to any person of rational mind that we have here a great testimony to the name of Jesus that it did not derive from the name of any pagan god but its parts and its meaning come from a far ancient antiquity. When it is properly understood that "Je" is the abbreviation of "YEH" or "JEH" the sacred name of God at the burning bush, and that "Uses or Usus" (these are the same), we have in the name of Jesus a very powerful new identity as the "GOD WHO SAVES BY WATER." So the name of Jesus in a shortened meaning would be simply Saviour! In the very name of Jesus we have the authority of our New Testament water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38).
When any apostate comes saying they have proof that the name of Jesus comes from Zeus or Iesa or some other false god or goddess, they are spreading lies and hate against the name of our Great Saviour. These apostates who have recanted the name of Jesus claiming it is a false name must repent and do their first works over or perish. And if they refuse to repent, then they will be damned! Any apostate who has called the name of Jesus the "pig god" name and or has confessed or taught that it comes from the Latin word for pig, is damned! If you deny the name of Jesus you will be denied in heaven. The name of Moses in its ancient antiquity is so connected to the name of Jesus that anyone who can receive the revelation will now know why Moses added "Yeh" or "Jeh" to the name of Oshea and thus signify that when the Messiah came he would be the one who God would raise up and to him would the people gather. It would not be Mouses who would save them this time but Jehuses (Jesus-pronounced the same). And whosoever received not this prophet would be destroyed from among the people (Acts 3:22-23). It is not enough that you receive the person of the Saviour, YOU MUST BELIEVE UPON AND RECEIVE HIS NAME! And that name is "Jesus!" If you know not the revelation of that name YOU CANNOT BELIEVE UPON IT! If you BELIEVE UPON IT and do not know the revelation of it, you can still be saved!
Iah or Yah
Yah is not the name of God I do not care if it is in Psalms 68:4 as Jah. David did not write Chapter 68. It was written many years after David and perhaps after the return from the exile. Verse 29 speaks of the Temple, something not built until after David's death.
In Psalms 68:4, Jah is said to "ride upon the heavens." This language is spoke after the manner of the moon and the sun which are said to ride across the heavens in their daily circuit. We are unsure how this corruption came into the Word of God but it is not verified in any other text of Scripture. This text is not a revelation text. If the name is to be authentic then it MUST be corrected to "JEH" as Moses fixed this very name to Oshea in Numbers 13:16. In no manner of form can "Jah" be a correct name form. All the ridiculous modifications using second and third person plural corruptions cannot be used to validate this error. God, whose name is "JEH" when fixed to the name of Oshea can never be made into the Egyptian moon god whose name was "Iah or Yah" which many Yahwist claim is the correct rendering of "Jah."
There are other false words put into the Bible to deceive and to substitute truth with falsehood. Even the name of Moses is different than that which it was in the original. Modern forms of the name of Moses further detach and remove it from any connection or identity with its ancient pronunciation. The pagan name of "Yah" is the Egyptian moon god and all the Jewish scribes and Law-keeping reprobates will never overcome that fact.
While many think the name "Iah or Yah" is a sacred name for the true God, the history of it goes back to Egypt. It is not the name of God and it is not an abbreviation of the alleged name Yahweh. We will provide more on this in the links below:
"Yah" is the Egyptian moon god and "Shu(a)" is the Egyptian sky god: http://www.ancient-egypt.org/
Yah is also the goat god with whom also is associated the moon. There is now available a great amount of information on Yah, Yahweh, Jehovah, Yahshua, and many other false names being used for God and Jesus. Do not be deceived by the modern law-keepers and sacred-name Hebrew-roots movements that are full of heresy and who deny the Lord Jesus Christ.
"Yah" is the Egyptian name of Toth as the moon god. And "Shu" is the Egyptian sky god of the heavens. Scroll down the link above until you come to the subject title "The Lunar God." There you will find the name of the moon god as "Iah" which is the same as "Yah." When you glue Yah & Shu together to form "Yahshua" you have an Egyptian moon god as the sky or heaven god. I am shocked and amazed that such names are given to Jesus Messiah without regard to a shred of research. The name of Jesus is not "Yahshu or Yahshua" and I condemn all who use it for the Saviour!
The sacred name "Ehyeh" (pronounced i-jeh, ieh, or as in the KJV iah or "i-ah") is the first person singular name of God. It is to be specifically understood that the letters "iah" that are attached to names in the Old Testament is an INCORRECT articulation of the sacred name EHYEH, EH=i and YEH=ah to form "iah." The letters "iah" do not stand alone as the letters of a different pronunciation for a different name like "Yah." Ehyeh is not contracted to form "Yah" therefore "iah" as the articulation of EHYEH is correct. Rather then putting false phonetics to EHYEH as "iah" the translators and scholars should have retained "ieh" or "Jeh" corrrectly from EHYEH!
Ehyeh is the first person singular ancient name of God first revealed to Moses at the burning bush. Prior to that time this name was not known or revealed (Exodus 6:3 where the tetragrammaton and "Jehovah" are interpolated incorrectly).
The three names by which God was known before this sacred name was revealed were "Elohim (God), Adonai (LORD), and Elshaddai (God Almighty). The Supreme being is called God, LORD God, and Elshaddai or Almighty God. At the burning bush a new covenant name was revealed. That name is EHYEH! Ehyeh is translated for its meaning "I AM that I AM" rather than the true name being in translations. Then I AM that I AM is further interpreted to mean "self existent, or the eternal one." Lying Yahwist remove I AM that I AM and interpolate the tetragrammatons "YHVH or YHWH" and make this into "Yahweh, Yahuweh, Yahshua, and Jehovah". They totally ignore the sacred name of "HYH" or "Ehyeh" with its proper vowels, because the true sacred name of God plays no role in the fraud and confusion they will afterward bring upon the name of God.
Some claim this scripture is a question and God was telling Moses that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew Him as EHYEH! Some claim that EHYEH here should be changed to YHWH or JHVH and that this means Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew and pronounced the names "Yahweh or Jehovah." Why would God say he appeared to them as Elshaddai if he had appeared to them as Yahweh or Jehovah? God said he appeared as Elshaddi and said he WAS NOT KNOWN by the name Moses had just received. This text is not a question. It is a declarative statement attesting that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had not known God by the new name Moses had just received.
Now some claim that the sacred name of "EHYEH" or in the Yahwist cases "Yahweh" or some other guess name like Jehovah, was known by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This begs the question then why God said he appeared unto them by the name of God Almighty (Elshaddai in Hebrew)? Why did God not skip this "God Almighty" name of ELSHADDAI stuff and just say he was known to them by the name of Yahweh, Jehovah, Yahshua, or some one of the other guess names? He did not because he had not revealed his new Covenant sacred name to them. Why did he say he appeared unto them by the name of Elshaddai if he had in fact already revealed the alleged names "Yahweh, Jehovah, or Yahshua" unto them? He did not because prior to the burning bush the sacred name of "Ehyeh" had NOT BEEN REVEALED to Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob. And, no one knew him as Jehovah, Yahweh, or Yahshua. In fact the sacred name "Ehyeh" was not known by anyone all the way back to Adam.
I know right well of the claim by Yahwist of the interpolation of the word "ADONAI/LORD" into the text beginning in Genesis 2 and afterward, that some claim was placed in the scripture to remove YHWH. They claim YHWH was in the original text and have subsequently removed ADONAI/LORD and inserted Yahweh in an attempt to correct the the alleged interpolations. Then, with the YHWH interpolated in the place of ADONAI/LORD they turn and use these alleged corrected evidences in an attempt to prove that Moses DID NOT receive the sacred name EHYEH in Exodus 3:14 for the first time. They go back to Genesis 2 and claim it was known there. Such interpolations and subsequent manipulations are fraud and fraud compounded. The fact is that Abraham called God "my Lord" or "my Adonai" (Strongs #113 & #136). If the word "Lord" appears in the sacred text prior to the encounter of Moses with God at the burning bush and the revelation of Ehyeh as the progressive revelation of his name, then "Lord" should be translated from "Adonai" and its rood "Adown" and NOT removed. "LORD" (in all caps), placed in the text where Adonai existed and later replaced by the tetragrammaton and at last corrected by the Yahwist to insert "Yahweh" is a FRAUD!
Some are making a lot of false statements that the Old Testament "LORD" is a pagan name that comes from BAAL because "Baal" also has the usurped meaning of being "master or lord". Let's not be to eager to make accusations and tend to be a little stupid here. When Nimrod usurped for himself a throne and began a kingdom line disconnected to the true genealogical line from Adam to Jesus Messiah, he by nature usurped the titles "master and lord" as a god manifest (Nimrod Ephipanes). Sarah called Abraham "lord" but she did not mean by it that he was a God, nor did Abraham usurp to himself some theory he was a God. The theft by Nimrod of the titles used by the Patriarchs in honor and worship of God does not give Nimrod exclusive rights to these identities. He stole them from God and made himself a god. Do we say that the word "Elohim" is a pagan name because it is used inappropriately by pagans and attributed to idols, angels, and men, etc.? No we do not. So, ok, lay off the accusations and let's deal in facts and honor to our God.
The names of many men ended or began with "baal (ba-al)" to signify "lord" in the sense of "master and owner and even king" (Strongs #1167 see also Genesis 36:38 for an example). If these titles were not used to usurp away from God his worship, and if they are not used to usurp for a person some idea he was a god, then the use of the titles are not evil or criminal. God certainly made no protest through the prophets for use of these titles in a correct manner. In the Hebrew Scriptures the true God of Israel is identified as Israel's ba-al! In Isaiah 54:5, the prophet declares: "For your Maker is your husband (Hebrew, ba-al) the LORD of hosts is His name." Also in Jeremiah 31:32 we find: "I was a husband (Hebrew ba-al) to them, says the LORD."
In Genesis 20:3 Abraham is called "ba-al"; in Exo 21:22 husband is called "ba-al"; in Exo 21:29 an owner of an ox is called a "ba-al"; in Exo 22:8 a master of a house is called "ba-al"; in Lev 21:4 a chief man is called "ba-al"; in Judges 9:2,3,6,7,18,20,23,24,25,26,46,47, the men of Shechem are all called "ba-al"; in 1Sam 23:2 David calls the men of Keilah "ba-al"; in Esther 1:17 husbands are called "ba-al"; in Proverbs 1:19 owners are called "ba-al"; in Isaiah 16:8 Lords of the heathen are called "ba-al"; in Jer 3:20 husband is called "ba-al"; in Jer 37:13 captain is the word "ba-al"; and in Joel 1:8 husband is called "ba-al". All these instances illustrate that different men in different times understood the word "ba-al" not to have a pagan or idolatrous meaning. It is when this word is applied to a pagan god and the pagan god replaces the true God and the word Baal is used to identify a false god as God that the word becomes misused.
The sacred-name sects and cults not only want to destroy and blot out the name of Jesus from the earth, they also claim that the word "God" is pagan and the words "Lord or Adonai" are also pagan. Some of these cult groups also reject "Elohim" as the name of a pagan god and substitute instead of God, "mighty one." This of course offers no escape because such was also used for pagan gods.
God himself spoke to the Prophets and claimed he was God, Elohim, and Adonai. If God has no problem using these titles for himself, why should we follow some sacred-name cult leader who now wants to correct not only the Word of God which he is not qualified to do, but he is going to CORRECT GOD HIMSELF!
It is when man elevates himself up to a god or uses the titles attributed to God for idols, and uses these titles to deceive others, that he has committed the sins of the devil. So, when the Jews attributed to Nimrod the title of Baal as a god and gave the same qualities they attributed to God to Nimrod, this was wrong and sin. To say that the title LORD is an exclusive name for only Baal, is error. To say LORD is a replacement of the tetragrammaton is also error. Abraham called God "ADONAI" (LORD) in Genesis 18:3 and then knew God only as Elshaddai (ADONAI Elshaddai; Lord God Almighty; found four times in the book of Revelation). LORD in all capitals signifies only honor to God and the most high God who is LORD! LORD in nearly all the 5,000 places where it is found is ADONAI and it other places it is the substitute for the sacred name EHYEH! It is wrong and a sin to lead the unlearned to blaspheme against the name of Jesus by giving them false information. We are not to give or attribute the glorious titles of God to idols. I would lay the charge against the Yahwist that they have done just that. They have given names and titles of the true God over to the pagans to be used by the pagans exclusively for their pagan gods and idols. They now want to say in a twisted way that the name Jesus is really Zeus therefore the name of Zeus is really Jesus. This is a blasphemous falsehood. They then dare anyone to attribute to the true God what they have given to the pagans.
The Jews removed the name of Nimrod from the text of the scrolls and left remaining only his usurped title as "lord" and translated this as "Baal." They are so dumb, to have left the names of the other two of that Babylonian trinity, namely "Ashtoreth and Tammuz." It is no great thing then to reconstruct that "Baal" is Nimrod, the husband-god of Ashtoreth and the alleged father of the god Tammuz (the first trinity). Why is it that so many want to correct errors in text and this one slips by all the translators and the pundits? That some Jews did attribute God's titles to idols does not mean we are forbidden to use these titles correctly in worship of the true God. God is LORD because he said the heavens and the earth are his (EXO 9:29; PSA 24:1; 1COR 10:26).
Some make the claim that the word "LORD" is also a Greek word and is foreign to the Hebrew language. This is false. The fact is that the word "LORD" is a Hebrew word and comes from the Hebrew word "ADOWN" (Strongs #113 & 136 a king or sovereign) from which comes "ADONAI" which is a Hebrew word translated into the Septuagint Greek version of the Old Testament became "Kurios" and both are CORRECTLY translated "LORD" and this refers to kingship or sovereignty. It was Jews in 280BC, 307 years before the day of Pentecost, who translated the name ADONAI into Greek as Kurios. The Apostles did not do this! They used the same translation of words that were used 307years before them. When Jesus quoted the Septuagint he did not say "Yahweh or Jehovah" in the text were the word "Kurios or in English Lord" is now used. In saying the word LORD is a correct translation of the Greek Kurios, we are saying that the word "LORD" is a substitute name of God replacing ADONAI. It is not correct to substitute ADONAI or LORD with the interpolated YHWH or JHVH which is done in every Yahwist Bible ever fabricated. The name ADONAI when used of God is a name. When used of man it is a title like Father. In may hundreds of places it is a substitute word REPLACING the ancient sacred name EHYEH which the Jews at once time considered to be the ineffable and unutterable name of God. But they replaced this SACRED NAME with a substitute. They capitalized LORD from "ADONAI" to designate the one true God from other gods who were called lord. We do know that every time they came to the HYH "Ehyeh" they would pronounce ADONAI. This was not just a habit or a fill-in to keep from saying some other secret hidden name. For the record: The holy name LORD is ADONAI in Hebrew; the holy name ADONAI is MORYO in Aramaic; the holy name ADONAI is Kurios in Greek; the holy name ADONAI is DOMINUS in Latin; and the holy name ADONAI is LORD in English (A Remarkable Biblical Discovery, William P. Hall, p34). Now if Jesus spoke Aramaic did he say MORYO when he meant ADONAI or LORD? If he spoke Greek did he say KURIOS to mean LORD? Or did he say ADONAI in the original Hebrew when he meant LORD?
He who was ELOHIM (GOD), ADONAI (LORD), ELSHADAI (GOD ALMIGHTY), MORYO, DOMINUS, KURIOS, was "EHYEH" (I-JEH). EHYEH is no other than God and adding "the articulation "IAH" or "iah" anciently known to be pronounced as "I-JEH" and incorporated into personal names, can NEVER be perverted into YAH, YAHWEH, JEHOVAH, or YAHSHUA without absolute fraud upon the Word of God. All these so-called "sacred name bibles" are pure fraud, junk, and incorporating pagan god names into the true Sacred Text! Here is a historical fact that is undeniable: of the thirty-seven (37) quotations made by Jesus of the Old Testament text, thirty (30) are almost verbatim from the Greek Septuagint (LXX) and they do not agree with many, many words from the Masoretic text of the eighth century! This forces us to examine if Jesus spoke Greek as well as Aramaic as well as ancient Hebrew. And if the Apostles can be counted to have transferred to us the actual words of Jesus would they have used different words and names than he used? If Jesus used ADONAI or KURIOS, or THEOS, or MORYO, for the English LORD, would we not expect the Apostles to place this as well in their written text? It is only in later post-apostolic translations that there is an attempt to interoplate the tetragrammation and other substitutes into these texts. Many point the finger at Origen and his Hexpla as the place where this perversion took place!
We do not know accurately where all the places might have been where EHYEH once existed in the original Hebrew Scriptures. The sacred name of "HYH" was taken out of the text and Adown and LORD inserted in its place to keep from pronouncing it. It was the sacred name EHYEH that was the target of Leviticus 24:11,16---"An Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed;" ..."And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death." It is apparent that the name of God here was one other than LORD, and LORD was used as a substitute for that name. It is also apparent that since Moses was commanded to deliver the Israelites using the name EHYEH, that this was the salvation name cursed. If the name ADONAI or LORD in English was the name to not be uttered, then they violated that rule over 5,000 times when it was placed in the Septuagint as Kurios. We know then that the name the son cursed was the name Moses used to deliver the children of Israel. And that name was EHYEH, not Yah, not Yahweh, and not Jehovah! All we have are traditions why the Jews removed a particular sacred name and no actual recorded facts to back these up. But what does this matter if we have a GREATER name for salvation in the name of JESUS? A name that would be GREATER than any Old Testament name or title of God! We would NEVER need to know or try to figure out any lost or secret name and the tetragrammaton would become obsolete and worthless for salvation!
To then say the word LORD in English when worshiping or in Preaching, and mean by this Kurios, Adown, or ADONAI in Hebrew, is to honor God as Sovereign KING, the supreme ruler of the universe! The word "LORD or Kurios" here is as much a name as any other title of God. In Genesis 4:26 when Enos began to call upon the name of the "LORD" this is in reference to God as supreme sovereign ruler of the earth. This word LORD here must be from ADOWN or ADONAI. Anytime anyone calls Jesus "Lord" they are saying he is the one sovereign ruler over them and all the earth. They are acknowledging his reign OVER THEM as the "last" heir upon the throne of David in the Kingdom of God. To backward interpolate into this text of Enos the sacred name EHYEH first given to mankind at the burning bush is false. To backward interpolate into this text the tetragrammaton is false. Jews and Gentiles have incorrectly substituted the name "LORD" when applied to EHYEH, the name of I AM is placed in these prior text in many instances. Jews and Gentiles have attempted to give the title "LORD" the same identity as the sacred name EHYEH. This is wrong! Thus, when they see LORD in the text they suppose it automatically means they can insert their guess names and the tetragrammaton where ever the word LORD is found. Correctly, the sacred name should be in the text only "after" it was revealed to Moses. Before and after the revelation at the burning bush, the text of the Scriptures could have God and LORD (as meaning ELOHIM and ADONAI) with no intent of the sacred name being intended or to be spoken. In the text that says LORD GOD all that is meant is ADONAI ELOHIM meaning the one Sovereign God above all other gods of men. In some cases the word LORD or (ADOWN) was in the text originally and the scribes inserted into the scrolls EHYEH, the sacred name, later this was substituted with LORD and finally this was further substituted with the interpolation of the tetragrammaton and its many variant spellings.
The sacred name "Ehyeh" can also be spelled "Ehieh" or Ehjeh" since in the ancient Hebrew there is no "y" in the alphabet and the letter "i" can be a "y" or even a "j" sound. How come we hear nothing of the Yahwist that there is no "Y" in Palo Hebrew? How come we hear nothing from the Yahwist about the sound of the letter "Y" that is supposed to be associated with the letter "I" although the letter "I" itself is NOT the sound of the "Y?" How come they do not tell those they deceive when the "Y" letter was invented and claim its sound was also invented at that time like they cry about the letter "J?"
However, we are not dealing so much in how the letters are stacked on a line but the pronunciation of the letters that in modern languages a particular sounding letter satisfies the same sound in trying to speak the ancient word forms and subsequently the name.
Below is an actual copy of a portion of the Dead Sea Scroll of Psalms 119:59-64, written in ancient Aramaic (Babylonian) alphabet. The text is Talmudic-Babylonian (Aramaic) and is no older than perhaps around 30BC-50AD. While scholars will wail and scream, these scrolls may come from the era from 100-700AD. Some want these texts to be very old so they can authenticate the tetragrammaton and or other teachings they want to claim the Christians stole or borrowed from the Essenes. There existed in Israel up to the eighth century several religious groups who could have and did use these caves. The artifacts found in them demonstrate a continious use for several centuries. The scroll is said to be from the library of the Essenes but this cannot be proven. We are told without proof that the Essenes devoted their lives to expunge from the manuscripts corruptions placed in them by Babylonian tainted scribes. We do not know if this Psalm scroll was considered by them to be authentic or among those that were corrupted. Scholars themselves are at disagreement with them when compared to the Septuagint and other versions. There are thousands of differences. The text below contains two different types of alphabet letter characters. Yet many hail this forgery as authentic.
Notice the four letters at the bottom and the blue arrow showing the location. These four letters are foreign to the rest of the script both as to style and also the slant of the letters. These are in paleo Hebrew an ancient alphabet prior to the Babylonian captivity. They are not in conformity with the previous written script. They are not even inserted in the manuscript level with the surrounding text. This shows that this is a forgery and an interpolation.
Another point of fact is that there is no "W" letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Here again, the Yahwist cannot have the name Yahweh with out the "W" sound with the "W" alphabet character which also, like the letter "J" was invented to symbolize the sound. We admit that the "W" sound was also included in the use of the "V" but what are the rules of grammer to know when the "V" had the "V" sound and the "W" sound?The Concision Yahwist never seem to want to discuss this. They want to focus in on the letter "J" and its sound so they can attack at the name of Jesus to blot it out of the earth. Should they use the same argument against the "Y" and the "W" they use against the "J" they could not even pronouce Yahweh and the letters would not be YHWH but IHVH!The Paleo-Hebrew letter that is translated by some as W or V looks like the red letter below on the right in the graphic:
What then is the third letter? Look at the red letter to the right and compare it to the third letter to the left. They are NOT the same.
What is the solution? What is the letter to the left that is being passed off as a W or a V among scholars and sacred name blasphemers?
The next chart to the right will show you what this letter is and how it was perverted.
Now what is that letter before it was edited to make it appear like it was a W or a V?
The construction before it was edited looks like it was a shamek or letter "S". What would the alleged tetragrammaton then be? It would be IHSH. This would be "IEHSHU." When we add the final "s" to add masculinity the name would be "IEHSHUS." Since the rule of grammer is that an "I" followed by a vowel has the "J" sound we arrive correctly at "JEHSHUS." which any person with intelligence can see is pronounced as "JESUS." The throat and the bird's eye indicates the third letter is an "S" and this is a crushing blow to the letters YHWH. Who ever did surgery on this letter to make it appear as a W or a V did not suppose his/her fraud would be discovered. Indeed, it was the careful investagative work done by myself who first discovered this fraud. It was with great surprise that we learned the same had been discovered in South America by another investigator. These charts are his work and we are indebted to him. Acts of fraud to place the tetragrammaton on ancient artifacts and even manufacture ancient artifacts is now out of control. Below I am going to post the ancient paleo Hebrew semitic artifact and show you how someone wanted to prostitute even another ancient artifact.
Please notice that there is no such letters as "y", "w', or "u" in ancient Paleo-Hebrew. Thus, any guess name that so many now claim is the true sacred name that uses the letters or English sounds of "y" or "w" is false. The fact is we can only guess at what the alphabet letters sounded in ancient times. All we have are translations into other languages that may not be translations at all but rather new word forms using the same phonetics of the more ancient pronounciation. These new word forms would retain both the ancient articulation and also the same meaning.
The Yahweh cult parade pictures of this artifact around claiming that it has engraved upon it the tetragrammaton. This is false. The tetragrammaton is not found on it at all.
Around the shoulder of the pomegranate is a carefully incised inscription in early Paleo-Hebrew characters, which reads: "qodes kohanim I-beyt H". "Holy or Sacred priests house of H." Some believe this object may be a phalic toy used in the rituals and ceremonies of the Baal cults.
The tetragrammaton is not on this artifact at all. The three letters IHV are fradulently added to the letter "H" to form an imaginary IHVH. We know what happens when men resort to the chambers of the imagry (Ezk 8:9-13). With Israel having worshiped so many different gods and idols it is important that we do not allow the Jews or any Gentile to shove this tetragrammaton falsehood down our throats. We are convinced that the tetragrammaton is a false name now applied to God and it is a name of a false god.
What ancient deity would "H" represent if this letter represented the name of a (G)god? The pomegranate is inscribed to be a gift from someone to the priest of the house of "H." This "H" could represent the name of a priestly family. It could represent Judges 4:17 (House of Heber); Amos 1:4 (House of Hazael); and 1Kings 12:31 (House of High Places). The "H" does not have to be the name of God or a god. It could also represent the name of a pagan god or a pagan temple whose name began with an "H," Pagans also called their priest holy ones. There were Egyptian shrines found in Israel and the "H" could stand for "Horus" the Egyptian god. For certain, if this was presented to the priest of God's house and "if" God's name was IHVH then the letter to represent the name of God would be "I" and not the last letter "H." For anyone to supply the missing letters IHV to this "H" and pass this relic off as proof that the sacred name of God was Yahweh is FRAUD!
Fabricating guess names from the tetragrammaton
The following "guess" names by scholars and other name pundits are all false:
Iahshu, Iahwah, Yahushawah; Yahueh, Yahve, Jehowah, Eave, Yahhewahe, Yahweh, Yehwah, Yahwah, Yahuah, and Yohewah (to list only a sample of the false names being claimed to be the sacred name).
Many pundits and alleged scholars claim that the sounding of the "J" as Jeh is false. They claim the letter "J" had no ancient equivilent sound but came from "I" and before this there was no "J" sound with which the letter "I" could also represent. This is not only false, it shows how ignorant these are who make this argument. The pronouncing of the letter "I" most certainly had the "J" or "jo" or "jod" sound as this is preserved in the Greek translations of the LXX as well as was preserved in the Greek pronunciation of "iah" for the Hebrew most sacred name EHYEH or EHJEH. When the name could not be translated the phonetics were created in new word forms. Thus, EHYEH became "Ieh, Yeh, Jeh, and ieh." Sometime later the "ieh" was corrupted by vowel points into "iah." Finally, "iah" was erroneously made into "Jah" and then pronounced "Yah."
In this corruption, not only is the original name EHYEH ignored and given no notice, the very fact of the transfer of the correct pronounciation into a new word form as "Ieh, Yeh, and Jeh" becomes obscured and ignored. Another mystery name occurs fashioned out of the name of the Egyptian moon and sky gods, that of Yahweh, which name means PERVERSE or PERVERSITY! These gods and their names were also transferred over to volcanos whose smoke and fire plumes reached up toward the moon and sky. Pagan altars where animal and human sacrifices were offered emitted both fire and smoke, the similar effects of these large and evil looking volcanos. At pagan shrines the fire and smoke ascended up to heaven to the worship and praise of these gods of the sun, moon, sky, stars, planets, and constellations.
The Egyptian moon god "Iah" is called "lord" which in the glyphs is "Neb" from which we get Nebu "the lords" and such names a "Neb-o, Neb-ai, Neb-aioth, Neb-ajoth, Neb-ballat, Neb-at, Neb-u-chadnezzar, Neb-u-shasban, and Neb-u-zar. Nebu or Neb-o in Egyptian means "lord" and in the Paleo-Hebrew language 'Neb" is translated "baal." Because this Egyptian name or title did not represent the true God, it is not used by the Godly Israelites in their personal names or the names of places. That Mount Nebo was named such had to be before Moses ascended this mount. This mount was obviously dedicated to some "lord" or god which in later years under the reign of Mesha, king of Moab, was found an altar allegedly to a god named YHWH! Since this altar was found in Nebo during the reign of Ahab, and Mesha considered this altar to be the altar of the god of Ahab, it is not hard to see right away that Ahab's god was baal and not the true God (1Kings 16:30-32). Therefore, the altar identified on the Moabite Stone along with the god YHWH was the god Baal. Keep in mind that in the days of Mesha that the name "Israel" was the identity of the northen ten tribes under Ahab. So, for Mesha to say he took the altar of YHWH, presumed to be the god of the northern ten tribes under Ahab called Israel, he only dragged back before Kemosh his god an altar of baal. The name Israel DID NOT identify the tribe of Judah at this time not did the name of the god YHWH identify the name of the True God of Judah! YHWH has absolutely no connection to the true God. This is another case where the tetragrammaton is associated with paganism, witchcraft, sorcery, and idolatry.
Moses and others transferred to the Paleo-Hebrew many Egyptian word phonetics and new word forms were created. Scholars are at debate if Paleo-Hebrew word forms are derived from Egyptian or Phonicean. The modern "J" sounding is nearly the same as the Egyptian soft "G" and the cobra stood for both articulations. It is only reasonable then to see that the Paleo-Hebrew "G" and the "I" also carried the same characteristics. Moses used the Egyptian "Je" as in "Jelly" giving the letter "I" the "Jod" or "G - J" when he renamed Oshea to Jehoshua. In the ancient Egyptian script the cobra stood for both the letters of "G" and "J" and since Moses transferred to the Paleo-Hebrew new word forms using the Egyptian language we expect these sounds to follow. And they did follow up to at least the Babylonian adoption of Aramaic. Then it appears the "J" sounding became "EE." Even later transfer of these word forms into old German which is called Yiddish there was another change. The Massoretics dropped the "J" sounding and adopted the "Y" sound used today. Some believe this was because the Pharisees had pledged to blot out the name of Jesus from the earth and by removing the pronouncuiation of the ancient "J" from the letter "I" this was accomplished. If this is correct, then we see the majestic hand of God when this was restored via a new and different method and the name of Jesus restored correctly in the English version.
Make a careful note of an important hermaneutic cornerstone: the prefix to the name of Oshea is not "Yah" it is "YEH" or "JEH." A fact so many either overlook on purpose or their error causes them to give it little recognition or weight. The problem is inserting the vowel between I and H. Is the correct vowel "a" or is it "e"? The "a" was selected no doubt because the name of the Egyptian moon god had the "a" between the "I" and the "H" forming "IAH" or "YAH." The Massoretes inserted the vowel point for "a" into "IH" and this corruption has been the source of that error ever since.
We also want to keep in mind that alphabet sounds were also altered when the Jews adopted Aramaic Babylonian articulations for letters and also pronounciation of word forms. The letter "I" in some cases was given the "E-e" sound As in Yehshu(s) where the "Y" or "J" sound is changed into an "e" so that Jehshu(s) is rendered "eesho" with no masculine (s)ending the name. These were further altered by the Massoretes who used forms of Yiddish (ancient German), and from this we have the "yah, yud, and yod" sounds of "I and Y." From this also comes the hybrid spelling Yeshua. There still seems to be a remnant of the "J" sound in German "Jah" as when saying the word "yes." Among the Sephardic Jews of Spain and in their ancient Ladino the "I" or "J" took on the Spanish "H" sound which is a perversion when applied to the sacred name. But anciently the "I" was "jod" with a soft "g" sound as was transferred from ancient Egyptian into the Paleo-Hebrew word forms. The Spanish Sephardic retains the "J" sound with the letter "I" and Sephardic is more akin to ancient Hebrew then Yiddish will ever be. When you make an academic choice take the Sephardic prounciation of alphabet letters to be more Hebrew sounding BEFORE you adopt the Germanic Yiddish ones.
Research Beyond The Books:
Do not always rely on some modern books (Jewish or Gentile 1500-present) to give you the correct information about the sacred name. Many of these books are full of error, lies, misinformation, and apostasy.
One such case is the corrupted opinion of Henry George Liddell, author of the English-Greek Lexicon now known as Liddell-Scott-Jones Greek English Lexicon. Liddell is one of those "higher critics" that so many wail about among the Yahwist, yet they turn to his lexicon for support that the name of Jesus came from the name of the Greek goddess of healing, Iasa. Here is Liddell's rendering:
Iesous being the "contracted genitive form" is Liddell's invention. Neither Liddell nor any idiot who quotes him have ever produced any artifact or document where "Iesous" was ever used among the Greek Ionics for the name of a Greek god or goddess.
Liddell was a Yahwist and himself looked for ways to denigrate the name of Jesus. A Yahwist is a person who believes the tetragrammaton is the name of God and that "Yahweh" is the correct pronuciation. If Liddell was half the scholar he is made out to be (he plagerized Francis Passow's German-Greek Lexicon), he would have instead looked and explained the name of Jesus from the Aramaic language and its equivilent written in Greek phonetics. That he would deny the deity of God in the name of Jesus by even associating his name with that of a pagan goddess, shows his willing purpose to avoid any connection to the Aramaic. To say the name of Jesus (Iesous) was dervied from a female name is a real joke. This is an example of an educated liar.
Do all agree with Liddell? No:
Here, the English Jesus can be seen to have come down to us from the Latin, Iesus. Iesus then, is from the Greek Iesous, which is in turn a phonetic pronunciation of the Aramaic for Jehshoo(s). Jehshoo(s) was derived from the earlier Hebrew "Yeh" a contraction of EHYEH, and "yesha" the Hebrew word for salvation.
Here are two witnesses who do not agree with Liddell's perversion. However we may assess Liddell's junk, the Yawist have at their disposal a quote from one of their own. We shall simply deny it! Liddell did not write the LXX and he was not an Apostle. We will place our trust on they who had better brains and a much more impressive faith.
Several alleged artifacts are claimed to have the YHVH or YHWH inscribed in or upon them, and we have discovered these to be frauds someone manipulated. If you want to accept what some Bible translator or writer places into his "preface" or other introductory notes as proof of some fact the sacred name is spelled a certain way, then you may be using error for your faith.
Below is a vase found in ancient city of Gat. The letters and the image on this ewer are copied and translated for you. Here is one artifact the Yahwist will not promote because it links the name "Yah" with that of the goat god. It appears the god-name "Yah" was a favorite among many pagan cultures. The Freemasons borrow this goat god for their own lodges and secret devotions:
Charging The Yahwist With Falsehood And Blasphemy:
The charge against the Yahwist is that in their extreme hate against the name of Jesus they spread falsehood and blasphemy. Once their minds are seared with a hot iron, they do not take the time to research the name of Jesus honestly and come to the truth about the "wonderful" name (Isa 9:6). The concision law-keeping spirit will not allow them to be that humble. Below is one of these hateful and blasphemous antichrist allegations:
Posted by Yahweh worshiper on a Yahweh forum:
"What I have learned from friends on the name issue. Under swine in Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary that "SUS" is latin for swine. When I saw this I began to think that it might be possible that I may be deceived about the name of the savior. His name means "pig god". Another piece of research that came across my path was where the name of Jesus came from. Here it is. In regard to the pagan character of the unbloody sacrifice of the mass, we have seen not little already. But there is something yet to be considered, in which the working of the mystery of iniquity will still further appear. There are letters on the wafer that are worth reading. These letters are IHS. What mean these mystical letters? To a Christian these letters are represented as signifying, " Iesus Hominum Salvator" " Jesus the Savior of men." But let a Roman worshipper of Isis (for in the age of the emperors there were innumerable worshippers of Isis in Rome) cast his eyes upon them, and how will he read them? He will read them of course, according to his own well-known system of idolatry: "Isis, Horus, Seb," that is "The Mother, the Child, and the Father of the gods," in other words, " The Egyptian Trinity." The Two Babylons or The Papal Worship, Alexander Hislop. The name of Jesus then equals Isis which is not the name of my Elohim."
Is Hislop correct? Does not anyone know that the Egyptian trinity is not Isis, Horus, and Seb: but it was Osiris, Isis, and Horus in that order "OIH" and not that manufactured by Hislop? If you want to be anticatholic because of the mass or some other perversion of truth, that is fine, only tell the truth. Do not succumb to lies to refute lies. Hislops twist of the facts are not needed to prove the mass is a pagan ritual not practiced anywhere in the New Testament. For Mrs. Yahweh worshiper above to associate Jesus with Isis is a shame beyond comprehension. But then, Yahwist are not known for trying to find the truth once their antiJesus hatred reaches its virulent peak.
The name of Jesus means "pig god", come on Mrs. Yahweh worshiper, surely you have more brains than that. But then, even Jerry Kirk in a debate in Atlanta, Georgia several years ago claimed this same meaning about the name of Jesus. He said that to baptize in the name of Jesus was to baptize in the name of a "pig god". So it appears this tale is circulating among the Yahwist and they as in other cases of their ignorance, have taken it as fact and are spreading the falsehood. They make the claim but they do not cite one source of reliability to back up their anti-Christ claim. To take Latin "sus" and associate this with the name of Jesus because it has "sus" within it, is ignorance. Could we say then that all words beginning with or ending in "sus" likewise mean "pig or swine"? Let's look at some of this stupidity for a minute:
Sus-penders= "pig straps"
And some of these idiots claim that "sus" or "soos" in the name of Jesus means "horse god". They take this from the word "horse" in Hebrew (Strongs 5483 cuwc (soos). Thus they say, "aha the name of Jesus in Hebrew means "horse god."
This is proof that ignorance is the birth of stupidity and false doctrine. Those who have the same mentality of the person spreading stupidity are the converts to such false doctrines the Yahwist are spreading. It has been my experience that they are all rebels and cannot be Pastored and do not fit within the Church family of those holding to sound doctrine so they depart out from among us to declare themselves as the prophets of God and end up in every wind of doctrine and heresy that comes to their ears. My 93 year old daddy once told me: "Son, figures never lie but liars always figure". My point here is that if you try to find out the meaning and interpretation of the name of Jesus from those who already have virulent hatred against his name, or from Jewish or Gentile books continuing a tradition of man, you will likely NEVER find it. All you will find is what they want you to know to group you into their theology and traditions of interpretation, with such like that the name of Jesus derives or comes from "sus" and means "pig god."
Others who follow this mentality will also rush to the names Joshua or Yoshua, or Ya- Shua, and then interpret them as meaning "Jehovah is salvation" (Jehovah is the Saviour of Jesus, one God saving another God). If and when you ever get deeply into the study of the guess-names Jehovah and Yahweh, you will enter into the murky and dark world of the occults where their conjecture and supposition are brought together in mysticism to claim they have discovered the lost sacred name based upon either an interpretation of YHVH or YHWH. Out of the practice of these cult groups comes the methodology of special tricks used in Jewish gematria and numerology to try and prove these guess names are accurate. Here is the bottom line on this. We are to base our faith on the MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY, what saith and teacheth the Word of God. If someone wants to prove the name of Jesus means "pig god" or some other of their claimed falsehoods, let them produce the evidence. This far all they have done is made claims and assertions and produced nothing.
NO OTHER NAME
In Acts 4:12 the Scripture is plain and clear: *There is NONE OTHER NAME under heaven given among men whereby we MUST be saved.* The Yahwist claim this name is that of God the Father (Yahweh), and not the name of their second God the Son (Yahshua) has no salvation in it. So in their interpretation of Acts 4:12 the reference is not Yahshua or Jesus but it is the Father's name Yahweh that is the saving name. Thus, they teach there is absolutely no salvation in the name of the second God at all, salvation is only in the name of Yahweh. The Oneness Yahwehs simply claim that the name of God the Son is Yahweh and that he came in his Father's name and so say the salvation name is still Yahweh. Actually I have found the alleged Oneness Yahwist to actually be two-God, in that they continue to separate the Father and his name separate from the Son and his name.
Now the word *name* in Acts 4:12 points back to its antecedent, the *name* of Jesus Christ in verse 10. It does not point back to the name Yahweh or any word to prove Yahweh is the only saving name. So, let's get this straight: No other name of God, no other name of man, no titles, no appellations, no tetragrammaton, is or can be a salvation name except that of JESUS Messiah. This fully proves that whatever the Old Testament names of God were, they have been replaced with the much greater NAME than they all. The Jews who reject Jesus and his name as Jesus Messiah (Christ) or LORD JESUS CHRIST (KING JESUS MESSIAH), have no choice but to still think they can obtain salvation in an Old Testament name or title of God or some name they invent like the tetragrammaton. Leaning upon these errors, Gentiles will attempt to deny that the name JESUS is a valid name, and try to substitute for it Yahweh and even Yahshua. Some want to hang their whole case upon the use of *J* as a substitute for *I* or *Y*. Are these claims valid? Read the rest of this article and you will find that they are not.
Those who come to deny the name of JESUS want everyone to think of the ancient names of God as higher and more holier than that name and spelling. Some even want the Greek substitute LORD which was interpolated in Greek Septuagint version at Exodus 3:14-15 in the place of the *removed* sacred name, and want this *LORD* to be a name and substitute it in Mathew 28:19 for the word Father in Baptism? This also is false!
Errors about the name of Jesus end up certifying the practices of Pharisee Judaism as being the correct way to God and Heaven without the name of Jesus, by going back under the Law and by using some claimed old Testament name of God that saves better than the name of Jesus? Well, as an Apostolic Messianic Christian Jew (Rom 2:29), I reject that. Our faith is not in the guess names and methods of Jewish, Catholic, or Protestant mysticism that tries to discover the lost name so they need not to confess faith in the revealed salvation NAME of Jesus. Remember, we have a MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY on the sacred and most holy name of God. The name of JESUS was prophesied by an angel to be the name all Gentiles and Jews would put their TRUST in for salvation AND IN THAT DAY THERE WOULD BE ONE NAME OF GOD (Isa 11:10, 12:4; Zech 14:9; Luke 1:31. That NAME was prophesied to Mary before Jesus was born (the more sure word of Prophecy); Mat 12:21; Rom 15:12).
Isaiah 52 & 53 And The Suffering Servant:
Below is Isaiah 52:13-53:2 in the Babylonian Aramaic alphabet. Who is the suffering servant of Isaiah 52 and 53. Will we find his name as Yahweh or Yahshua? Beginning at Isaiah 52:13 after the word hineh and taking the first letter of every seventh letter what do we have? We have "Yeshua simon lemo". Interpreted as "YESHUA IS APPOINTED TO BE HIM."
Yeshua is certainly not Yahweh, Yahshua, or Yahwehshua. The name Yeshua correctly Yehshua (since the h was dropped here in the Aramaic and is silent), is transliterated as Jehsus and with the "h" silent as in Yeshua, we have Jesus! This is remarkable. This name was written into Greek by the Apostles as "IS" in the Nomina Sacra and latter incorrectly expanded to IEHSOUS" and dropping the "H" becasue it is silent most often in Hebrew, we have "IESOUS." The sacred name without the masculine "s" would be "IESOU". And from this we get some who pronounce the sacred name as Jehsu and Jesu. Anyone who associates this sacred "wonderful" name of God (Isaiah 9:6) with the name of a pagan god or claims that it means "pig god" deserve the antichrist award of the year. The name Jesus does not mean "pig god". It is not a name for a second God of rank in the Greek pantheon of gods! It is not the name of the second person-God in a trinity. It is the ONLY NAME GIVEN UNDER HEAVEN WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED!
Jesus is the God of the Old Testament incarnated in flesh (1Tim 3:16), therefore he is the God referred to as *ADOWN or LORD.* As the ADOWN, the sovereign, the King, Jesus is both Christ (Messiah) and LORD Luke 2:11. He is the anointed One to be the ADOWN or sovereign LORD King of Israel on David's throne. He is the Messiah, he is the pre-existing God Almighty who swore by an oath to David that he would visit mankind through the seed (flesh) of David and when he did, He would sit as KING of kings and LORD of lords upon David's throne over all Israel and all the world:
And his name shall be called Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us. Jesus Messiah is the God who is to be with us Mat 1:23 in person and appear as a man of the seed of David. He will have a dual nature of God and man. Anyone who denies the deity of Jesus is an antichrist. When God came in the flesh to sit upon David's throne his name cannot mean he is Jehovah Junior, or Yahweh Junior, or some second person in a triad or pantheon of gods, as some try to make his name mean by making Jesus another person separate from God. They do this in order to derive his name from another God which is alleged to be hidden within the tetragrammation(s) YHVH or YHWH. When Messiah comes his name will be that of Almighty God! There is no need then to go back and try to use a replaced name or title, or to try and recover some lost name! We have it all in the name of JEHSUS MESSIAH.
Yahwist follow the Pharisees method in rejecting the name of Jesus. The Pharisees are bewitched that a lost name and its substitute LORD is the real salvation name and reject the name of Jesus as being the name of a false prophet whom they had killed. Yahwist believers agree with the Pharisees that the tetragrammaton and the guess name of Yahweh is greater than the name of Jesus and even their own substitute name of *Yahshua* they make greater.
Yahweh Groups Call Jesus "Pig God":
Yahweh groups (Truth Restortation Ministry associated with New Covenant Yahweh Assembly) are usually led by self-made and self-appointed alleged scholars who tower above the unlearned and slow of heart as experts of language and transliterations. They borrow Jewish methods from the occult Kabbalah to manipulate the tetragramaton until they also guess name for God to be Yahweh. These then turn and say that the name of Jesus is either the name of a pagan god or that it means the PIG. These claim that the *sus* in Je-sus is Latin for pig and this make the name of Jesus to mean pig or unclean pig god or such like! They do so to get the ignorant and unlearned to gasp in horror that they were baptized into the name of a false god or into a name that means pig. Quite a few have fallen for this ploy and right away start using word YahShua when speaking of Jesus. I am absolutely SHOCKED at this sorcery being palmed off as revelation and subsequently the total disregard of the name of our God kept secret since the world began; ...a name revealed by an angel when the Saviour came to earth incarnated in the seed and flesh of David to redeem his creation by the glorious name of JEHSUS (Luke 1:30-33)!
There is no GREATER name above the name of JESUS. God has none greater. Look at what God said to Manoah: *And the angel of the LORD said unto him, why askest thou after my name, seeing it is secret (Judg 13:18)? Then when Jacob wrestles with this same theophany of God and asks his name, God refuses to give it to him because the fullness of time had not come for it to be revealed for salvation. All they had then were Elohim (God) and Elshaddai (God Almighty). This up to Moses and the burning bush. There, when Moses ask the name of God, God said to him *I am that I am* (Exod 3:14). Those words are not at all like that in the ancient Hebrew. Instead it is written *Ehyeh asher Ehyeh*. Now *EHYEH* is considered the great name of God given to Moses to be his memorial to all generations. When the Jews wanted to take the sacred name out of the scrolls, they replaced it with an interpretation of the name rather than the name. When the Old Testament was translated into Greek in about 280BC, the alleged Jewish scholars substituted in every place the sacred name of EHYEH was found the word *Kurios* which means LORD, a title given to Kings in respect of their authority and dominion over all. Thus, the Jews took from the concept of Supreme Ruler or *self-existent-one*, and inserted LORD and gave it that interpretation in the place of the sacred name of EHYEH (God is salvation). This they said was done to keep the poor and stupid of the Israelites and the pagan Gentiles from profaning the name of God by taking or using it in vain.
So, in our King James, the translators adopted the Jewish method of inserting the word LORD capitalized so as to say ADOWN or ADONAI in reference to HIM who alone is God, King, Sovereign, and has DOMINION. But having the word LORD in the King James is not a NAME and is not the name of God anyway they manipulate it. To change it into "Jehovah or Yahweh" or some other guess name where the sacred name does not belong is wrong. The word "LORD" was never the NAME OF GOD nor was it ever given by God to be used as a name for him. The word LORD is then merely a *TITLE* and no better than the title Father! For anyone to make the argument that title LORD is a real name because it appears in the KJV, shows the lack of scholarship of the person making the claim. Some insist that the word LORD is indeed a name, if so, then should we then speak it in English or in Hebrew? Was English and the King James Version the language and translation used in the Old Testament and in the days of Jesus? To insist that the title "LORD" is a name and refuse the Hebrew words for that title is not honest etymology or exegesis. In many places in the Scriptures where the word LORD is now found, the ancient name of EHYEH existed until it was censored out by the Jews. Around 280BC the Scribes translated the Hebrew text into Greek and the Hebrew "ADOWN and ADONAI" were translated as Kurios. Kurios was also interpolated into all the text where the sacred name as given to Moses existed in the text. Subsequently, the title "LORD" replacing the sacred name of EHYEH, was backward interpolated into the Scriptures BEFORE Exod 3:14 where in the KJV it is recorded to have been first given and revealed to Moses (such first interpolation we fined in Gen 2:4 etc.).
Any retranslation of the word LORD before Exod 3:14 into the sacred name of Exodus 3:14 is an error of the Jews and Yahwist, to make the divine name to exist BEFORE Moses got it from God at the burning bush. And if Moses knew it, why would he ask about it and God reveal it to him as if he did NOT know it? Any use of the word LORD to say Father, the name Jesus to say the Son, or the word Christ to say Holy Spirit (Mat 28:19), and say that the name is LORD JESUS CHRIST, are deceived by the same spirit of error as those Jews and Yahwist who now use the guess words of Yahweh or Jehovah, and reject the name of JESUS alone as the one saving name. Jesus was born both Lord (King) and Christ (Messiah), but his name is called JESUS. You may say with all reverence King Jesus Messiah, for that is the same as saying *Lord Jesus Christ*, but his name is JESUS (Mat 1:16; Luke 1:31). So that to baptize Acts 2:38: Jesus Christ, is to say the sacred name JESUS and identify him as GOD, KING, and MESSIAH. THAT is the confession upon which our whole Apostolic faith is founded.
So, the interpretation of the name EHYEH given in Exod 3:14 is replaced by the interpretation of self-existent one or, ...the I am. And so even up to today, these quotations are used by the ignorant and the unlearned who think the Jews have a great mastery of the Scriptures and the sacred name. That is why they are called BAALSHEM, Baalshem, or masters of the name. But I say Baal is not the name of God. That Baalshem means name of Baal as God. And I conclude that the Jews have replaced or forgotten then name of God (Ehyeh) for BAAL (Jer 3:21, 13:25, 18:15, 23:37important). The Jews took the name of *Baal* and associated with it the title LORD that they had attributed to God. And it is this false *lord* of Babylon *Nimrod* called *Baal* and the use of the word *lord* that God protested when he accused the Jews of forgetting his name for Baal or *lord*. This is not a light matter, and it points directly to the perversion of the sacred Scriptures where Ehyeh was censored out and the word *lord* in capitals was inserted where EHYEH was stood. Then to translate this *LORD or lord* to YHVH or YHWH to mean Jehovah or Yahweh, and still not discover *Ehyeh* the ancient first singular covenant name, and still reject *JESUS* as the one saving name of God, is error and falsehood compounded.
I would urge you to read all of the previous cited verses and check deeper than the books of man and you will find this truth. Sometimes it is right in the reference in the center of the Bible page. There many will put *Ehyeh asher Ehyeh.* I was shocked to find it in my own Royal Bible. The sacred name of EHYEH translates into HYH when the vowel *e* is removed, ...not YHVH or ...YHWH. And, if you will pay special attention to those who speak in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance, you will *NEVER* hear anyone say JEHOVAH or YAHWEH, but you will hear thousands say: EH-YEH, or *I-yeh* over and over and over and over and over. Many have been heard in foreign lands to speak the name of Jesus in English as they spoke in other tongues as the Spirit gave the utterance. Surely this is some GREAT weight of evidence that God knows his name. You will hear many speak in tongues and say Eh- sha or I-sha, and even Yeh-sha and Jehsus. And we think they have learned English when they are saying the name of our God in a manner that Heaven approves and accepts as equivalent as the entire sacred name YEHSHAS. When we say Jesus in praise and worship there is no need for us to speak in tongues to say the same word, although it is done over and over and over and over.
We come to the question of how the sacred name figures in the name of Jesus so that Jesus could say: I CAME IN MY FATHER'S NAME? Here is the truth and the facts. Elohim is the Hebrew word for God, God used the abbreviation of Elohim as *El* and the Patriarchs added this *EL* to the names of children, to the names of places, and to words of praise and worship. This carried with it the full power and force as if the whole name was pronounced and stood to the entire and wholeness of God's being and person. Thus we have Bethel or Beth-el which means house of God. We have Daniel or Dani-el or God is my judge, ...and so forth. The same was done with the sacred name Ehyeh. the *Yeh* was added to names, places, and words of praise and worship. The Jews changed this *Yeh* into *Yah* and that is a gross error as there was a Babylonian god named *yah*. But our YEH is not their YAH. Or our God is not their god. Or our Elohim is not the elohim. Same difference.
Now, the name "Jesus" in English is *Yehsha or Yesha* in Hebrew and comes from the word meaning salvation. Go look it up (Strong's 3467). In Hebrew the *h* is omitted but is pronounced silently so that if you say Yesha you are saying YEHSHA. The name Yehsha contains the abbreviation of *Yeh* from Ehyeh. And where ever this YEH is used as in the use of EL it carries with it the full force, power, and meaning of identity of the wholeness of God's being and person. And thus we have not only then the name of God in the name of Jesus, but it means *EHYEH* IS OUR SALVATION, or *EHYEH* OR THE I AM HAS BROUGHT SALVATION. Thus, in the name of Jehsus or the Greek Iehsous, the contraction of "Yeh" from "Ehyeh" makes the name of Jehsus to mean I AM HAS BROUGH SALVATION. Why so many take out *Ehyeh* and put in the word *God* or the tetragrammatons to keep from pronuncing the sacred name in association with the name of Jesus is a tremendous FRAUD!
The name Yehsha has the *s* added to it to in the Greek language to give it masculine gender or syntax as IESOUS. The Greek language does dot have the "sh" pronunciation thus IESOUS. If added it would be IESHOUS. Since the letter "h" in Hebrew/Aramaic is often a silent letter it is omitted in IESHOUS but when placed in its correct place we have the name IEHSHOUS. The accusation is made by the tetragrammaton cults that IESOUS is a false Greek name that comes from Zeus that someone glued on to Jesus as his name. These perverters of truth and masters of all subtility, members of sacred name covens, purposely deceive. The name IESOUS was in the Greek Septuagint Version of the Old Testament 280BC.
Here in the Greek text of the Old Testament, translated around 280BC we have the name of Jesus. In the King James Version this "IESOUS" is spelled Joshua. Scholars who have any intelligence at all, know that "Jo" is the Greecianized from of the Hebrew "Jeh or Yeh." They also know that the Greek "IESOUS" is not a Greek name to be pronounced in a Greek fashion but rather it is a Jewish name. In Hebrew the name of Jesus has for its root the name "Yesha" which means salvation. Yesha is the same as Yehsha. There is no actual letter "Y" in ancient Hebrew. We have the letter "I" which can stand for three different sounds of "I" "J" and "Y". The rule of ancient grammar is that the letters "I" and "Y" have the same pronunciation, the "Y" coming into use from influence after it was created. The other rule of grammar is that when the letter "I" is followed by a consonant it has the sound of "I" as in Isaac. But when the letter "I" is followed by a vowel it has the sound of the "Jod" or letter "J". With this rule of Grammar, since we believe IESOUS is a Hebrew name and not a Greek one, the letter "I" is followed by a vowel and therefore has the "J" sound: hence IESOUS becomes JESOUS. With the name "Yesha" you can see there is no "Y" and this letter is an "I" and should be "IESHA." The "I" followed by a vowel makes it into a "J" thus we now have "JESHA" and by adding the final (S) for syntax we have JESHA(S). The Greek language does not have the "SH" sounding and so this does not appear in the Greek spelling. If it did, we would have IESHOUS and following the rules of Hebrew grammar we would have JESHOUS which is the same as JESUS!
Here is the dilema scholars have been faced with, but which few have courage to take a stand on: If the Greek IESOUS was in fact understood by the Apostles as IESHOUS and a Hebrew/Aramaic name, then should this name be pronounced from the Greek language or from the Hebrew/Aramaic? If it is pronounced from the Hebrew?Aramaic then it is JESHUS! In deed, if we pronounced the name from the Greek language we would have "ee-sous." Now "soos" is not the same as Zeus "dzyooce" although there may be a similarity of sound. Here is another fact the tetragrammaton cults will not tell you: Zeus is not pronounced "g-sus or gez-us, or even ze-us" at all, but is pronounced "dzyooce" (dis-ooce See Strongs #2203).
So then we have the name YEHSHAS or YEH-SHAS transliterated as IEHSOUS (yeh-sous), not Yah- shua, or Iah-shua. That the *Y* became a *J* has no bearing on the articulation of the name as the Yeh is also pronounced as Jeh or Gee as in Je-re-mi-ah. Here the name is correctly; Jeh-re-mi-Jeh. And with an English accent rather than German, Irish, Polish, Russian, Greek, Italian, etc we pronounce the name of Iehsous as Yehsha, Yeh-shas or Gee-shas, or as spelled Jesus. The *h* is in the name of Jesus as in Jehsus, but the *h* is pronounced in the *Je* part of the name.
It is NOT THE SPELLING we are interested in but the pronunciation of the name which however it is spelled, is accepted by God as his sons and daughters calling upon his name. There is much more to it, but suffice to say, that the books do not contain at all any of the above information and what I have given is accurate. Therefore the name of Jesus is NOT ...Yahshua. For in that spelling there is no salvation, as the word salvation in Hebrew is Yehsha. Go look it up for yourself (Strong's 3467). The Yahweh apostates have taken a name YEHSAHS that means salvation and REPLACED it with a name Yahshua that has no salvation in it at all. The same with the word Yahweh. It is false from the tetragrammaton all the way to their mystical and witchcraft way of using gematria and numerology to create and fabricate it. Both the words Jehovah (Catholic) and Yahweh (Protestant) are guess names and they cannot save a dog. Those guess name-words were never spoken by anyone until they were invented by mystics and those affiliated with the occult. I resent any occult creation of a name for God and then try to make that superior to the name of Jesus, as if the Lord Jesus needs the ministry of the occult as a source of his divine revelation.
But in the name of Jesus, pronounced as Gee-shas from Yehshas or Jehshas, comes the GREATEST name of God to all the world. And remember, we are to PREACH *that* name for salvation and none other (Acts 4:12). My screen-name is not Acts 0412 by accident. And if we preach any other name, we are not Ministers of Jesus Christ because he sent his apostles to preach salvation only IN HIS NAME (Luke 24:47), not the words God, Elshaddai, Ehyeh, et al. And if these are the names of God for salvation, and Jesus sent his Apostles with his name alone for use for salvation, then let's forget all about Christianity and go join the Jews and Phariseeism, because Jesus would have been a fraud and he deserved to die for sending the Apostles to the world in his name and NOT some other name of God. But if he was God manifest in the flesh, and his name was the final and greatest name of God ever revealed, then the gainsayers had better repent or they will perish to hell-fire as reprobates who denied the name of Jesus.
Here is the conclusion: God's salvation name from before the foundation of the world, for that is when he set forth his plan of redemption and the Lamb's Book of Life, was Yehshas or Jehshas pronounced in English as Jesus. It was to this name all the others pointed and were partial revelations. So that the word *God* is a partial revelation of who Jesus is as Creator. The word Elshaddai is a more fuller revelation of the Almighty Creator and he who Blesses, as by this new name Abraham was blessed and given it for use in blessing. And then EHYEH is a revelation of the Covenant God. So that these point to the fullness of the revelation of the GREAT name of Yehshas or Jesus as Creator God, the Blessing God, the Covenant God, and lastly the Saving God. Hence we have here that as the tabernacle and all the symbols and rituals of the Old Testament were TYPES and SHADOWS to be fulfilled and brought to their climax and completion with Christ and the New Testament Church WITH THE REAL, so all the temporary and substitute names and titles of God were only types and shadows of the REAL name of God revealed in Jesus Christ. So that the name of Jesus or Yehshas is not derived from any name of God, but visa versa, they were all derived from and point to Jesus Christ from which they all have their type.
Even so, the Fullness of New Testament salvation in Christ as the Supreme Sacrifice, Water Baptism, being filled with the Spirit, are not patterns of the Old Tabernacle system, but rather the REAL thing that cast the shadows upon those rituals and practices and to which they spoke in figure but not the very things. So, the name of Jesus did not derive from any Old Testament name or title of God, but rather that glorious name cast the shadow upon all the old Testament names and titles, so that they could only see through the glass darkly as to the fullness of the revelation of the TRUE name of Jesus Christ by such words as God, Elshaddai, First & Last, Alpha & Omega et al. Moses then renaming Oshea to Joshua or as accurately, Jeh-oshua (Num 13:16). The Jews dropped the YEH as the sacred name and shortened this to Joshua corrupting even the YEH as Moses clearly gave it to *JO.* Such a puzzle is only matched by the thimblerigging of the Catholic Church in using the titles: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in the place of Jesus Christ as Peter plainly gave it. There is no God named *Jo* or *Joe* ha ha. Please notice that Moses did not name him YAHOSHUA. As YAH is not correct it is YEH as the abbreviation or contraction. And this Yehoshua name is a partial revelation of that JESUS who would at the very place of the CROSSING, Bethabara, appear for baptism by John the Baptist, and there coming up out of the water, was the JESUS or one that Jehoshua was a type and shadow of. All men have not this revelation, and only they to whom it is sent can grasp it.
If a person sees the God of the first Commandment not being Jesus Christ, and as to his name which was not revealed there, then they still have the vail of reading the Law over their heads and they are blind. Anyone who keeps the First Commandment and does not honor the Lord Jesus Christ as the God of it, is blind, and that is the whole of the Yahweh and Law-keepers apostasy. They do not see the revelation of Jesus as EVERYTHING God is or was or shall ever be. They want to separate the God of the Old Testament from the Jesus of the New, and make Jehovah or Yahweh the Father of Jehovah or Yahweh junior and use these guess names to be superior and more saving than the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. I resent that and I protest against it by the writing of these words to you. I am as much a Minister of the Name as I am the Gospel sent by the authority of that NAME. Anyone not bearing that NAME and the Revelation of it has no authority to be preaching nor is that person ordained and sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. They will go to the books and preach man's teachings while the revelation we so need in our hour is darkened and silent. But I shall speak, I shall write, I shall praise that worthy name they blaspheme. So it is written, so it shall be done.
Below is a small assortment of false guess names the assorted sacred name groups are fighting among themselves over, all taken from the IHUH, YHUH, IHVH, YHVH or IHWH, YHWH tetragrammatons. You want to go crazy also? Grab one below, deny the name of Jesus, go back under the Law, depart from the grace and name of Jesus Messiah, and you will become a hater of the name of Jesus also:
I will say with all gravity and sincerity that no where in the Scriptures are we told that we had to speak any word or name in an exact Hebrew manner. The Apostles did not feel it a sin to translate the sacred name into Greek as Iehsous (Iesous) and I feel it no less degrading that this great name be translated into every language of the world. So, I will not condemn or betray the faith of those who say the name of Jesus Christ in Chinese, German, Spanish, Russian, etc. We will let our God be the judge.
The "I" to "J" factor:
One of the lies pushed by the Yahwist, is that the name of Jesus starts with a "J" and there is no "J" or a sound like the present "J" in the Hebrew language. They make a lot to do about there being no "J" or a "J" sound in the English language until the letter "I" was changed into a "J" sometime in the 13-16th centuries. One Yahwist prophet said he would give anyone $10,000.00 if they could produce the proof that the letter "J" existed as a pronunciation in Hebrew prior to this alleged change. That proof has been furnished to him, and he refuses to pay up. The following was scanned from the book entitled: God, Jews, And History, by Max I Dimont (a Jewish Scholar), page 29:
This one example of how the letter "Y" WAS PRONOUNCED as a "J" proves the Yahwist claims are false. Now some of the antichrist against the name of Jesus claim I am changing something here. Note carefully that if the "J" is pronounced like the "Y" then correctly the "Y" and the "J" have the same pronunciation. Also please note that the sounding of the "J" is preserved in the Greek translations for the Hebrew or Aramaic "Y" or "I" as "Jo" as in the case of Jo-shua. We also know that "Jo" is an attempt to continue the original "Yeh" or "Jeh" as pronounced in ancient Hebrew or Aramaic. What we have here is more likely the infusion of Babylonian Chaldean Aramaic backward into the Hebrew and finally into Greek and that answers to why there is the duality of "Jo" and "Je".
Babylonian Aramaic or Syriac
And contrary to the claims by blaspheming Yahwist, EESA is not the name for Esau. In the translation of EESA /EESHO into Greek as IESOU(S) there is a mixture of phonetics. Attemps to connect this to the Greek goddes of healing "Iasa" because of a similarity of sounds is pure baloney. These are ignorant of the Aramaic spelling and pronounciation and so can try to blaspheme the name of Jesus using this illogical blasphemy. The "IE" of Greek was the same as the "EE" of Aramaic. And in Paleo-Hebrew the "EE" and the "IE" are the same as "EHY" which is the first three letters of the sacred name "EHYEH." The true and orignal Hebrew name of Jesus was Yehshas. Translated into Aramaic it became EESA/EESHO. And into Greek it became IESOUS. Finally into Latin as Iesus and English as Jesu and finally as Jesus. There is absolutely no paganism or fraud involved in the name of Jesus and any attempt to connect it to any pagan name is proof the individual doing so is a reprobate.
Ancient Hebrew A Dead Language
It must also be remembered that true ancient Hebrew is a dead language of which we know little about correct pronunciation. There are no extant MSS that indicate vowels and or pronunciation. Vowels were guessed at around 700-800AD and placed into the scrolls at that time. Scholars have found hundreds of errors in these additions. Such is the placing of wrong vowels like "a" and "e" in the words where it is now known the other vowel belongs. All we have is the Greek MSS and any transfer of the articulation of the Hebrew or Aramaic phonetics into that tongue. And do not let the gainsayers say this has not happened. We would point out that it did happen in the transfer of ancient Hebrew into Chaldean Babylonian Aramaic and thus back to us again from Chaldean Babylonian Aramaic into Greek. Anyone who denies this route of transfer of many words is simply ignorant of the facts. Check your Strongs and look for the abbreviation "Chald" that he uses to show where the transfer comes from into Greek. Look for instance at Strongs "Rabboni" #4462. Look at how "Rabboni" is a Babylonian Chaldean Aramaic word that is the equivalent of the Greek "Lord" but yet it is translated "Master."
Modern Hebrew is not the same as ancient Hebrew. The way words are pronounced in modern Hebrew cannot be proven to be the way they were pronounced in ancient Hebrew unless we use Greek words where we know the phonetics were transferred from either Hebrew or Aramaic. Modern Hebrew is an invented language based upon several languages and a lot of guessing. Likewise, anyone who says that the ancient Hebrew language had no "J' or "Jo" or "Jod" sounding is simply spreading falsehood based upon Jewish errors and Gentile stupidity.
The guess name "Yahshua" IS NOT found anywhere in any ancient manuscript as the name of the Messiah. It is not in the Bible ANYWHERE! I have debated the Yahwehs and asked them to produce the documents that the name "Yahshua" was the name of the Messiah. Thus far none have done so and they shall never be able to do so. In spite of this, there are several Yahweh sects and cults who continue to spread the false doctrine that "Yahshua" is the correct Hebrew name for Jesus. They claim "Yahshua" does not need transliteration and is accurate in that name form. Is this true? No it is not!
The fact is, that when the Babylonian Masoretic scribes updated the Aramaic and Greek Scriptures in their possession to form a new "redacted" Bible, they added dots and dashes to represent vowel sounds they believed were within these words. Over the centuries quite a few mistakes and fabrications to this new version have been discovered. In spite of this, many continue to use these added vowel points as being the inspired act of God? These are the descendents of the same scribes who opposed Jesus and joined in the plot to have him crucified. They were blind guides on Scripture then and they remain BLIND GUIDES. Of what interest is it to them to translate something accurately if it can be used to prove Jesus was the Messiah? In fact they take the view that it is better for them to corrupt the text than to have it accurate if it can be used to authenticate Jesus was the Messiah. It was these Masoretic scribes living in Babylon who claimed that the correct vowels to insert into the tetragrammaton YHWH were those in the word "Adonai" when correctly they took them from words like "hovah, ahvah, ahveh" . And it was these same scribes who practiced magic and the Kabbalah who suggested that when the vowels of Adonai were combined with YHVH, the sacred name was pronounced "Iehovah" later to be spelled either "Yehovah" or "Jehovah." Certainly the Jews did not protest their own formula for guessing the lost sacred name, they gave it to the world. They put the vowel marks on the tetragrammaton. When this guess name was promoted by Martin of Troppau in his "Pugio Fidei (1278AD)", of the secret Order of St. Dominic, the Jews did not protest. In fact, many do not protest today although the most recent guess name of "Yahweh" is now the favorite of Jews, Catholics, and Protestants, and found proliferated by them extensively throughout their modern theologies. And what do they offer as the AUTHORITY for adding the necessary vowels to form Yahweh? THEY DO NOT USE THE VOWELS OF ADONAI AT ALL. I know where they got the vowels "a" and "e" to insert to make the guess name Yahweh. And it would shock you to know. There is not ONE CLAIM that ADONAI as used to form JEHOVAH was used at all to form YAHWEH! From whence comes the "e" in Yahw-"e"-h? And from whence comes the "weh" pronounced by millions as "veh."? We know what they say "Yah" means, but what is the pregnant hidden riddle in the "weh" or "veh" Let them tell us! And let them tell us how this associates with ADONAI!
The Yahwist will NEVER tell you where the name Yahweh comes from but I will. They claim that "Yah" comes from "Jah" is Psalms 68:4 but no one has ever proved this. We now know that "Jah" is a corruption and this should he "YEH" because it is found in the sacred name EHYEH. It is always a claimed "YAH" comes from Psalms 68:4 but this is an assumption, and believed, but there is not one person in history who says that "Yah" in the name of YAHWEH comes from this text except the Yahwist trying to prove thier case for YAH being the first three letters of the tetragrammaton.
Instead, we see Yah in another form of "iah" fixed to several names of those in the Old Testament. We also find several names beginning with "Jeh" or "Yeh" in the Old Testament. Moses was the first to attach "Jeh" to the begining of a name when he added a contraction of EHYEH, the sacred name given at the burning bush, to the name of his successor Oshea. By adding "Jeh" which is a form of "YEH" to Oshea, the name Jehoshea or as Grecianized Jehoshua was formed (Numbers 13:16). But NEVER is an Old Testament name started with "YAH" or "IAH." The three letters "YEH" of "JEH" we know where these came from. "YAH" or "IAH" has nothing to do with the name EHYEH given at the burning bush. So where did this YAH come from? "Iah" is the name of the Egyptian moon god. Did the Jews have Egyptian gods (see Jeremiah 44:8)? The answer is yes. Did they worship the moon whose name was YAH? The answer is yes (2Kings 23:5)!
Now where did "weh" from Yahweh come from? Maybe we should ask where "ahweh or ahveh" which can also be the pronounciation of Yahweh come from? Will the blaspheming Yahwist tell you? No, they will not tell you and they do not care to know themselves. But I will tell you:
The guess name Jehovah is the same as the word "hovah"(Strongs 1943) in the first box to the left and means ruin or disaster. The guess name Yahvah is the same as the word "ahvah" (Strongs 5753) in the second box on the left and means to do perversily. The guess names "Yahveh or Yahweh" are the same as the word "ahveh" (Strongs 5773) in the third box on the left and means distorting, perverting! By adding a "J" or a "Y" to these these words and forming false sacred names, the occult and mystic fabricators invented "Jehovah" and "Yahweh!" If you call upon these names you may be calling upon a demon or a false god. Y-ahweh or Y-ahveh and combining the name of the moon god to this "ahveh or ahweh" we can see that those who baptize in the name Jehovah or Yahweh are baptizing their idiot converts into the names of gods of ruin and perversity. Would a God in heaven ever allow his name to contain these abominations? These are missing from the WONDERFUL name of Jesus, the ONLY saving name! Now we know why the name Nineveh was given by Asshur (Nimrod) to one of his cities. Nineveh is another form of "moon-god perversity." "Nin" is the ancient Akkadian name for the moon god and we have already seen that "ahveh" and the contraction "veh" means ruin, disaster, to do perversily. Nineveh, the city of moon god idolatry lived up to its name (Jonah 1:2).
It is the taking of "Yah" as found in the KJV in Psalms 68:4 as "Jah" that begins the subterfuge of creating the false name "Yahshua". In the Psalms text, the word "Jah" is said by Strongs to come from "iah". It is from a false use of this three-lettered word that "Yah" emerges as the first step in the formula of fabricating the name "Yahshua." At this point there is no such name as "Yahshua" it must be fabricated, it is not found once in all of the Word of God in any ancient manuscript.
The first error of the Concision here, is to give this three-lettered word the pronunciation of "Yah" with the "Y" replacing the "I". Now there is no "Y" in the Hebrew alphabet but that makes no difference to the sacred-name sects and cults. These rely strongly upon Catholic and Protestant theologians and their books, who also do this, but it does not make it accurate. "Yah" is pronounced wrong because the "Y" is made to replace the "I" in "iah." Anyone who knows anything about "iah" knows that these three letters were just a pronunciation form of a much older and ancient spelling of "HYH". That ancient and much older spelling is "Ehyeh" (HYH with two "e" inserted correctly). When this name is pronounced ,"Eh" becomes an "i" and "yeh" becomes "jeh or ah", thus "i-jeh" as in "El-ijeh" or "El-ijah, ...Elijah in the KJV," and also "iah" as added as a suffix BUT NEVER AS A PREFIX to several names in the Bible.
Scholars must have weighed heavily the correct sounding of "I" in the Hebrew text and chose the "jod" and not the "yod" pronunciation of the corrected redacted alphabet and Masoretic text of 875AD. And for several centuries the Jews made no protest. To this day, those who are intelligent on this issue still refuse to become embroiled in this debate knowing that the scholars acted upon professional information provided by the Jews themselves. The Jews give the letter "i" both the "I" and the "J" soundings. It was after the Babylonian Masoretics added their revisions and vowel points to their Scriptures that "yod" has been more extensively adopted as the pronunciation of the letter "i". In the Psalms text the letter "J" or the "jod" use was adopted and the three-lettered name "Jah" appears in the KJV. It is a rule of grammer in the ancient languages that were based upon the Phoenician standard that when a vowel followed the letter "I" that the "I" have the "J" or soft G sounding. When the letter "I" was followed by a consonant it retained the "I" sounding. This is the rule the KJV translators used in translating Hebrew words and names. It is absolutely a fraud to give the "I" a "Y" sound when a vowel follows the letter "I". Scholars who have done this should acknowledge their error and correct it. A practice adopted in the past two hundred years should not destroy such an important ancient fact of language.
The Yahshua sects and cults then proceed to claim that both the Father and the Son's names must begin with "Yah" although no name may begin with the letter "I" followed by a vowel "a" and pronounce it as "Yah." And further, the Yahshua sects and cults allege that all salvation and truth will rest upon the personal new guess names of "Yahweh and Yahshua." It is then necessary for them to destroy the name of Jesus in order to establish these guess names using "Yah" as a prefix. The sacred-name sects and cults will then begin to blaspheme against the name of Jesus, claiming that some evil translator just assigned to Jesus a name in Greek and "Iesous" was that name. Then they claim this unknown translator made this name up and was borrowed from Zeus, the name of a pagan god. With careful and artistic skill in fabricating their falsehood, these creep into homes and Churches leading the ignorant, the stupid, and the faithless to renounce and recant the name of Jesus. Having debated the Yahweh's it has been my experience that those who fall into this heresy are simply stupid and it gives them some opportunity to appear intelligent. I have not met a one of them who when challenged was not heady, highminded, mean-spirited, and arrogant. These ignorant ones for the most part are usually those who were not founded well in the Word of God in the first place, many being troublesome members who were always carried about with strange winds of doctrine looking for some added ingredient that would make their salvation better or stronger. Heresy always seems to masquerade itself as something being restored when in fact it is something that is "distorted."
I will quote here from Daniel Segraves book "The Messiah's Name Jesus, Not Yahshua" pp13-14: "The claim that the Hebrew yod "carries the sound of "ee" as in "police" (12) further reveals the author's lack of familiarity with the Hebrew language. Yod is transliterated into English as "y," and it has no vowel sounds of its own at all. The author (speaking of a YNCA writer) may be confused about the development of matres lectionis during the monarchic period of Israel's history. "In the earliest phase of the development of Hebrew, vowels were not indicated at all." (13) But during the monarchic period, the alphabetic signs he, yod and waw "were introduced at the end of words to indicate final long vowels." (14) When he, yod and waw are used to indicate final long vowels, they are not longer considered consonants. (15) In this case, the letters have taken on a different function altogether. In the third stage of the development of the Hebrew spelling system, the matres lectionis ("mothers of reading" in which consonants took on the new function of indicating vowel sounds), yod and waw began to be used not only at the ending of a word indicate a vowel, but also within a word. But yod never represents vowel sounds at the beginning of a word, and represents a vowel sound only at the ending of words. (16) The statement that yod "in Hebrew carries the sound of "ee" as in "police" is wrong. If the yod is at the end of a word, it indicates the "ee" sound. If it is within a word, it may or may not indicate the "ee" sound. If it is at the beginning of a word, IT NEVER INDICATES THE "ee" SOUND " (Note by Pastor Reckart, this proves my claim that IESOUS does not have the "ee" prefix sound of "Ie" and proves that "Ie" is a shortened form of the Hebrew "IEH or YEH" and should be pronounced Jeh-sous or as in English Jeh-sus, ...Jesus).
Then on page 32 I quote Segraves: "The shortened form YAH is the independent form and/or the terminal form in some names like Elijah. Though it can stand alone or at the end of a word, IT CANNOT STAND AT THE BEGINNING." (Pastor Reckart's note: This means that "iah" or "Yah" can end a word but never be the start of a word, thus Yah can never be the first part of the Saviour's name or any other name.). "It is also not true that "Yahshua" means "the salvation of Yah." A note here, the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology says this: "Iesous is the Greek form of the Old Testament Jewish name Yesua, arrived at by transcribing the Hebrew and adding an s to the nom. to facilitate declension."
Here we have a case of the scholars declaring that "Iesous" to be the transliteration of the Hebrew Yesua, something that the sacred-name sects and cults deny and claim was derived instead from the name of Zeus! So, how do the scared-name sects and cults come up with Yahshua? They take Yah the name of the Egyptian moon god and glue the word "shua" to it and form their own guess name. The guess name Yahshua is not FOUND ONCE IN ANY ANCIENT MANUSCRIPTS. It is a false name!
The Nomina Sacra
Yahwist not only are excellent liars, they are not consistant. On one hand they claim the name of Jesus is the Greek Zeus, then on the other hand they produce the Nomina Sacra argument which contradicts them.
To the left is a chart that shows how the names Jesus and Christ were written in the Greek manuscripts witgh two letters each. These names, words, and phrases known as the Nomina Sacra were not abreviated because the Apostles and early writers were being devious or trying to begin a mystery religion. They were just a shorter way of writing a name, word, or phase that those who read the text could fill in with the whole pronunciation by memory.
The falsehood of the Yahwist is to make the claim that the Greek manuscripts contained the name Zeus where the name Jesus is found in the text today. If as these perverts claim, that the name Jesus is really the Greek name Zeus, then we would expect for the name Zeus to be found in the Greek text and not the name Jesus as abbreviated in the Nomina Sacra. In other words, look at the name Jesus and see if the Greek contained the name Zeus. The name Zeus is not there at all. Not even an abbreviation of Zeus appears in the Nomina Sacra.
We should note, that since the abbreviation of the name Jesus Christ is not spelled out in Greek in the Nomina Sacra, that to spell it correctly will require some confidence in the Hebrew pronunciation so that when the letters are expanded to the true name, the name matches that spoken by the Apostles. The standard Greek rendering as found in Strongs and other Greek reference works are nearly all false, based upon conjecture and combining Greek and Aramaic spelling and pronunciation rather than the Paleo Hebrew.
The true name of Jesus comes to us in the following manner: Je is derived from EHYEH the sacred name of God, dropping the first EH we have Yeh or Jeh as added to the name of Oshea (Numbers 13:16-Jehoshua). In Hebrew the "h" is silent so that Jeh becomes the "Je" in the name of Jesus. The word salvation is in the Hebrew "yehsa" (Strongs #3468). Again, Yeh of yesha is a contraction of EHYEH the sacred name of God given to Moses at the burning bush. Yehsha is the correct spelling but because the "h" is silent it is dropped to form Yesha. The name of Jesus is therefore derived not from Zeus but from "Yehsa" converting the "Y" to its proper "J" sound we have "Jehsa" and the adding the masculine (s) we have Jehsas and finally Jesus. The "sas" and "sus" are identical in purpose and pronunciation. To claim that "sus" comes from the Latin name for pig and this means the name of Jesus means pig god is stupidity. To claim that the precious name Jesus comes from Zeus, is not only blasphemy, anyone who makes this false accusation is immediately damned!
The Yahwist who have blasphemed against the name of Jesus are all damned. Those men and women who have cursed the name of Jesus calling it the name of a pig God are damned. Those men and women who were rebaptized in the false names Yahweh and Yahshua to remove the name of Jesus from their hearts, minds, and souls, are eternally damned. It makes no difference if a person claims they were deceived or lied to, they are still damned. Eve could have made that defense but she was still damned and lost. Salvation is a wonderful and great gift of God. When men and women become heady, highminded, rebellious, full of stubborness, and acquire the over all attitude and character of the devil, then like the devil they damn themselves. The first sign of an apostate is not to be subject to the Pastor and the Apostolic Ministry in matters of faith, doctrine, and practice. The second sign of an apostate is to accept a wind of false doctrine and try to infiltrate this heresy upon the Church and Believers as a new revelation. The third sign is to separate from the Church family and join up with other apostates. That is why we true Believers must take the more earnest heed to those things spoken to us by the Lord and the Apostles who heard him. If a person plays with their salvation, then they can expect the consequences.
A case history: Steve was once filled with the Holy Ghost. He attended Church faithfully. He would not come under the authority of his Pastor. He soon slipped away and was backslid for a little over a year. When he came back to the Lord he had been contacted by a Yahwist. He was convinced the guess name Yahweh was the true name of God. He renounced the name of Jesus being stirred up by the Yahwist that it came from a pagan deity named Zeus. He sought for the refilling of the Holy Ghost. He came to the altar many times and cried for hours trying to be saved again. He would not say the name of Jesus believing to do so was to honor a pagan god. Steve could not feel God. He could not feel the presence of God. He called a neighboring Pastor to ask if the name Yahweh was good or evil. The Pastor in his stupidity and ignorance said Yahweh was the lost name of God. Steve took this support and ran with it. When his Pastor called me into the picture, Steve was in great spiritual trouble. He could not feel God. He had sinned against God. After over a year of admonishing him to call upon the name of Jesus, and his refusal to call upon the name of a pig god, Steve finally broke down. He began to speak softly and sweetly the name of Jesus. But the heavens were brass and his prayers like lead. He could not find God, could not feel God, and finally backslid out into the world. Today he is a lost man and in great sins. The Yahweh doctrine has caused Steve to be lost.
If you are in a Yahweh Church or group, I command you in the name of Jesus to come out from among them and be a separate people. If someone has deceived you into Yahwehism, REPENT, and have a non-Yahweh Apostolic Pastor baptize you according to Acts 2:38 and get the name of Jesus back upon your temple of the Lord.
