This question was asked of several Pastors, Preachers, Priests and Teachers. "What is God's name?" As We expected, the answer would come back, "The LORD"! [ EHHH... Wrong! ] Some quoted two (commonly and intentionally mistranslated) scriptures, namely, Jeremiah 16:21 and Amos 5:8, to us. Another questions begs: "Then what is the LORD'S name?" In almost every case, they all decided it was time to avoid further discussions. They didn't want the 'argumemt'. The word/term/title "LORD" is etymologically traceable to its origin, "Ba'al", as in Ba'al-Zebub ( LORD of the Flies ); Baal'im, my LORD! Therefore, to use the word / term / title "LORD" as the personal "name" of EL-Shaddai, is to refer to Him as "Ba'al". This ofcourse has been and still is one of the tactics of Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots ( the Roman Catholic Church) and her Protestant Offsprings, that they may CONFUSE and in'doctrin'ate Elohim's people to refer to, and call upon the name of their idol and deity, LORD/Ba'al, and not YaHuWaH, whom the people SEEK!
In addition, the word 'God', where did it come from? What does it mean? We are told by them that it is a translation of the Hebrew word 'EL'! Lies! Diabolical lies!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Gaut (Old Norse nominative Gautr; variants Gauti, Gaute, Guti, Gapt; latinized Gothus; Old English Geat) is an early Germanic name, ... tribal god of a number of related Germanic tribes of the migration period, ... According to Anderson (1996), ... The "pouring" etymology associates the name with the word 'god' (*gudan "deity, idol"), which may be derived from the zero grade of the same root.
In other words, the word, 'God', is the name of the deity of early Germanic tribes! 'God', is not the translation of the Hebrew word 'El'. Can there be Any wonder about this? Is this not part of the fulfilment of the scripture? See 2Thess 2
2Th 2:3-4 KJV (3) "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God".
Satan has long planned to overthrow YaHuWaH, as he outlined in Yashayahuw 14:12-14. :
Isa 14:12-15 KJV
(12) How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
(13) For thou hast said in thine heart, , in the sides of the north:
(14)I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (15) Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
The hijack of the Word of the YahuWaH, the Bible, was a major part of the plan, 'I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation'. He would take over the Church! Clear and simple. He removed the Name of the Most High from the Bible and inserted his own death-dealing name, Ba'al (the Lord) every where.
2Th 2:7-12 KJV (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom
the LordYahuwah shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (11) And for this cause El (God) shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (12)
Looking ahead to this part of Satan's masterplan, YahuWaH cried out to HIS people through HIS prophet YirmeYahuw,
Jer 23:25-27 KJV (25) I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
(26) How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
(27) Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
Our Fathers have been calling YaHuWaH, Ba'al! - the LORD! Our Pastors, Priests and Teachers encourage us to call HIM Ba'al, the LORD! We have forgotten HIS NAME! But were we not commanded not to even mention the names of any other gods?
Exo 23:13 KJV (13) And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
Now, let the Bible tell us our Father's Name that we have forgotten:
"And Mosheh said to Elohim, “See, when I come to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?” And Elohim said to Mosheh, “I am that which I am”. And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I am has sent me to you.’” And Elohim said further to Mosheh, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Avraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya῾aqob, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, ...’"
Consider this scripture:
"I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy (teach) lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy (teach) lies? yea, they are prophets (teachers) of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Ba'al.
The Pastors, Preachers (and others) never use 'El Shaddai's true and proper Name. They do not even care to know it or to know about it. Who are they working for then, or serving? Surely, not the Author and Owner of the Bible. They removed HIS NAME from HIS own Book and put in the name of their god! Making their god, Ba'al, the author and owner of the Bible! Scary isn't it! Just think of it this way. Since 'Ba'al' actually means 'LORD', and vice-versa, let us sample a few very familiar scripture clauses as paraphrased:
"Ba'al Our Righteousness", or "Thou shalt not take the name of Ba'al thy God in vain", or, "all who call upon the name of Ba'al shall be saved".
Oh! Beloved, I am sure a feeling of outrage is welling up in your heart right now! Shouldn't Scripture be faithfully and accurately translated? I am sure that you agree. If they will not do it, please take your pen or pencil and in your copy of the Holy Bible, rewrite them as follows:
"YaHuWaH Our Righteousness", "Thou shalt not take the Name of YaHuWaH thy 'Elohim in vain", and remember that, "all who call upon the name of YaHuWaH shall be saved"
The praise expression 'Hallelujah', is pronounced, 'Hallel - uw - YaH'. Or have you ever heard it pronounced, "Hallel - u - Yeh"? Am sure, that will sound strange even to a "Jehovah's Witness".
The Hebrew language is written from right to left, so the Divine Name would be read as: HWHY. But if turned from the Hebrew 'right to left', to the English 'left to right', it becomes: YHWH
Whichever way you look at it, it is quite obvious that there is no way you can get the letters "LORD" from "YHWH"! Try!
Although close, but not exact, we can see the missing or incorrect elements in the following forms of mis-transliterations of the Name of El-Shaddai: "YeHuWa , YeHoWa , YaHoWeH , YaHWeH"! And this next ones are so way off: "JaH, and JeHoVaH". And you cannot even get close with the strange rendering "Jehovah". "Jehovah is the worst name ever ascribed to our Father! Have you ever bothered to reckon its origin and meaning? Beloved, it is the most blasphemous of all! First of all, the beginning of His Name is not pronounced JAW ; Second, look up 'HoVaH' and its meaning in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary and Concordance. It is word number #1943 which is another form of #1942 - meaning, to: Covet, Ruin, Calamity, Iniquity, Mischief, Mischievous Thing, Naughty, Perverse Thing, Very Wicked, etc. The Term 'Jehovah' (Je ? -'the perverse thing'), is a very blasphemous and insolent rendering of the Name YaHuWaH! There is no letter 'J' in the Hebrew Language! If it was intended to represent the "Y" in the Name, then we can tell you that in Hebrew, 'Ye' means, 'I will be'. So the full name 'Jehovah', as 'Yehovah', will mean, 'I WILL BE A PERVERSE THING'! Is that how you want to address your Creator? I cannot, I will not, and neither should any True Worshipper (JOHN 4:24) call The Heavenly Father a wicked, perverse thing!! ( See Psalm 74:10 )
Furthermore, the mistranslation known as Yahweh does not fit-in etymologically with the pronunciation and scripture requirements as you will see right now:
A lot of people are called according to HIS name. But were those names anything like, Yahwehdah?, not one. What we see is Yahudah (Judah).
Or is it the Son who came in his Father's Name? Yahwehshua ... eh, wrong again.
The True, Proper and Correct renderings and pronunciations are:
For the Father:
YaHuWaH = (Yah - uw - ah)
For the Son:
YaHuWSHu'A = (Yah - uw - shoo - ah)
And for the People:
YaHuWDaH = (Yah - uw - dah)
YaHuWaH [Yah -uw - ah] is the Name of the Creator. And, yes, He does have a Name! It is the Name which we are told that the righteous will run to for help and deliverance. It appears in the name of the tribe from which His Anointed came - YaHuWDaH. It also appears in the names of His people - as in YirmeYahuw (Jeremiah), YashaYahuw (Isaiah), and some 100 others. It is not
"god" - a title like "Dr., Senator, Teacher, Mister, etc." There are many "gods" - so which one is He, and is HE one of them?, or "lord" (which means Ba'al) - both being pagan titles. His Name appears some 7000 times in the "un-paganized" Scriptures, but the "deceitful" scribes have replaced all of them with "god", or "lord", in almost all of the translations. Read the prefaces in the Bibles you have and see what they have done. And, by the way, do you have a name by which you are called, otherwise, how could you be identified? Would be called, 'Mister' in the midst of million other 'Misters', or 'Miss' among a million other 'Misses'? It is a must for everyone to have a name! --- as it is for our Creator and Savior!
"Who Is and Who Was and Who is Coming"
"Asher Hu-Hawah, Hayah, waBah"
or Who Is - Who Was - Who Will Be - The Eternal One!
There is no one word in English that can be used to truly give the meaning of His Name. YaHuWaH fills the universe - He is ALL in ALL - Everything!
Elohim said to Mosheh,
I AM THAT I AM
I AM - THAT - I AM
HAYAH - ASHER - HAYAH
Strong's Hebrew #834 - ASHER: who, which, what, that.
#1931 - HUW: HE (who)
#1961 - HAYAH: (comp #1933) to exist,
#1933,1934 - HAWAH: Meaning, to be or become, come to pass, that, which (is), who, (compare with #1961) to breath, to be, to exist (especially in connection with other words.)
I AM HE WHO EXISTS
HAYAH - HUW - HAWAH
YAH - HUW - WAH
Which was, which is, and which is to come
#1961 hayah; was, to exist, to be, come to pass
#1931 huw; he, which (is), who, that;
#1933, 34; hawah to be, to exist, come to pass
I AM - THAT - I AM - 3 parts
HAYAH - ASHER - HAYAH - 3 parts
Yah-huw-wah - 3 parts
The first three "letters" of the tetragrammaton - YHW - are the "identifying" part of the tetragrammaton. They identify Y a H u W aH as the I AM HE - YaHuW - Ani Huw that appears in so many of the texts where HE identifies Himself - often in the duality of "I, I". It CANNOT be left out of His or His Mashiyach's Names. (The Ibriy (Hebrew) actually reads as "I HE" the 'AM' is placed between the two words for understanding.
YaHuWaH's Name, in His People:
The Name of the Eternal One is not a "secret" - hidden away from His people. And it will not be found in some vague translation, what some ancient scribe reportedly called Him, or what some "respected" encyclopedia says His Name is! His Name is found in the Scriptures - as is all Truth. ... and if it cannot be found there, then it is not His Name!
1. He has left His Name in the name of the tribe from which His Anointed came, YaHuWDaH. The tribe that He said carried His Name. The Ibriy (Hebrew) spelling is
The "D", "dalet" in Ibriy is a picture of a door - a door which leads us to YaHuWaH and to HIS Name. Remove the dalet and the result is YaHuWaH - [Yah-hoo-wah]
2. Likewise, He has left His Name in the names of His people which have meanings that reflect their relationship to the Eternal One - their Mighty One (Elohim)! For YirmeYahuw [Jeremiah] says in Chapter 15, verse 16:
"Your Words were found, and I ate them; and Your Words were to me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart: for I am called by Your Name, YaHuWaH, Elohim of Hosts." (YirmeYahuw = YaHuWaH will raise up.)
There are some 100 names of Biblical Yisra'elites who have "YaHuW - I AM HE " in their names: 72 that end with YaHuW, 27 names that begin with YaHuW and one with it in the middle. Some examples with His Name at the back include:
YashaYahuw, which means YaHuWaH is my deliverance,
TsephanYahuw, meaning, YaHuWaH has hidden away,
NechemYahuw, meaning, consolation of YaHuWaH,
TobiYahuw, meaning, YaHuWaH is beneficent,
MikhaYahuw, meaning, Who is like YaHuWaH,
ZekarYahuw, meaning, remembered by YaHuWaH;
Here are a few with His Name in the front:
YaHuWyaqim, YaHuWtham, and YaHuWshaphat.
4. And from 2Chronicles 20:37 there is another name containing the last part of the name of YaHuWaH.
"Then Eliy'ezer the son of Dodawahuw of Mar'eshah prophesied against Yahuwshaphat, saying, “Because you have joined yourself with AchazYahuw, YaHuWaH has destroyed your works.” ..."
5. The Greatest Witness to the name of YaHuWaH is in the name He gave His Mashiyach, YaHuW-SHuaH (I AM HE who SAVES/DELIVERS or YaHuWaH's deliverance)! For YaHuWaH said in Shemoth [Exodus] 23:20-21 “Behold, I send My Messenger before you, to guard you by the way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. Pay attention to Him, and listen to His voice. Don’t provoke Him, for He shall not pardon your disobedience, for My Name is in Him."
This is verified by YaHuWSHuaH Himself in YaHuWchanan (John) 5:43:
"I have come in My Father's Name, and you don't receive Me. If another comes in his own name, you shall receive him."
And in YaHuWchanan 17:11 :
"O Set-apart Father, guard them by Your Name, which You have given Me, ... "
Thus from the Scriptures alone, as shown above, the whole Name of our Mighty Ones (Elohim), our Elohim, "YaHuWaH" can be found.
And from Bereshith (Genesis) to Revelation HE is the ALEPH wTAW.
Bereshith [Genesis] 1:1 "In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth."
Revelation 1:4 :
"YaHuWChaNaN [John], to the seven assemblies that are in Asia: Favour to you and peace, from Him [the Father], Who Is and Who Was and Who Is Coming [- Asher Hu-Howeh, Hayah, waBah - ]
“I AM the ALEPH and the TAW,” Beginning and End, says YaHuWaH, “Who Is and Who Was and Who Is To Come, El Shaddai.” [Anochi Aleph wTaw, an utterance of YaHuWaH Elohim, Asher Hu- Howeh, Hayah, waBah El Shaddai"]
"I came to be in the Ruwach [Breath/Spirit] on the The Day of YaHuWaH, and I heard behind me a loud Voice, like a shofar saying, “ I AM the 'ALEPH' and the 'TAW', the First and the Last ... I turned to see the Voice that spoke with me. Having turned, I saw seven golden menorot. And among ha'menorot was One like a Son of Adam, clothed with a robe reaching down to His feet, and with a golden band around His chest."
And in Revelation 22:13
"I AM the AEPH and the TAW, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."
"I, YaHuWSHuWaH, have sent My messenger to witness to you these matters in the assemblies. I am the root and the branch of Dawiyd; Light of Brightness and Star of the Dawn.”
"The twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before YaHuWaH's throne, fell on their faces and worshiped YaHuWaH, saying: 'We give You thanks, O YaHuWaH, El Shaddai, the One Who Is and Who Was; because You have taken Your Great Power and reigned!'"
Two texts that one should dwell on daily:
"It will happen that whosoever shall call on the Name of YaHuWaH shall be delivered (saved); for in Mount Tsiyown and in Yahrushalom there shall be those who escape [are delivered], as YaHuWaH has said, and in the remnant, those whom YaHuWaH shall call." Partially quoted in Acts 2:21 & Romans 10:13
"Then those who feared YaHuWaH spoke one with another; and YaHuWaH listened, and heard them, and a book of remembrance (Sefer Zikarone) was written before Him, for those who feared YaHuWaH, and who think on His Name. They shall be Mine,” says YaHuWaH of Armies, “My own possession on the day that I make them My jewels."
