In the Name of Jesus

When God chose to manifest Himself in flesh as our savior He chose a name that would signify the essence of who He is. The name He chose would not only reveal who He was, but also what His mission on Earth was. The name Jesus means Jehovah-Savior, meaning that Jehovah is our Savior.

We are told in scripture that God would dwell with us.

Isaiah 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Jesus is the fulfillment of this prophecy.

Matthew 1:21-23  21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.  22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,  23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Jesus died on the cross to provide salvation for those that will accept it. The gospel (His death, burial, and resurrection) is the new birth experience that includes being born of the water and of the Spirit.

John 3:3-5  3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

The new birth is given to us in the name of Jesus. Jesus is the name given to us for salvation.

Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Jesus is the name that is above every name.

Philippians 2:9  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

We are to do everything in the name of Jesus.

Colossians 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

This includes water baptism. We are to be baptized in the name of Jesus.

There are five baptismal accounts in the book of Acts. In each account, the name of Jesus is the name used for the baptismal formula.

The first account is Peter’s sermon to those that had heard the disciples of Jesus speaking of other tongues as they received the Holy Ghost. This is the account of the Jews receiving the gospel.

Acts 2:21  And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Acts 2:36-39  36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.  37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?  38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

The Jews recognized that Jesus was their savior – God manifest in the flesh to become their sacrifice. They accepted that baptism was in Jesus name and 3000 were baptized that day.

Acts 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

The second account is the Samaritans receiving the gospel.

Acts 8:12-17  12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.  13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.  14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:  15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:  16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)  17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

The first thing Phillip did was preach Christ unto them.

Acts 8:5  Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

When they had accepted Christ as their savior, they were baptized in His name.

The third account is the Gentiles receiving the gospel.

Acts 10:43-48  43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.  44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.  45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.  46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,  47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?  48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

The oldest Greek manuscripts say ‘in the name of Jesus Christ’ (Bernard, p. 45). We know that the Lord is Jesus.

Philippians 2:11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Peter recognized that God had opened the door for the Gentiles to receive salvation. This includes baptism in Jesus name, as we see from his command to them to be baptized.

The fourth account is the disciples of John.

Acts 19:1-6  And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,  2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.  3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.  4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.  5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.  6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

The disciples of John had been baptized unto repentance. It was necessary for them to be rebaptized in the name of Jesus. If the name of Jesus wasn’t important at baptism, Paul would not have rebaptized the disciples of John.

The fifth account is Paul.

Acts 22:16  And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Calling on the name of the Lord means to invoke (Bernard, p. 48). This literally means to say the name of Jesus at baptism. Paul knew what this name was because he met the Lord on the road to Damascus.

Acts 9:5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest

Paul knew that the name of the Lord was Jesus. It was only natural for Paul to understand that baptism was in the name of Jesus.

It is clear these passages that baptism is in the name of Jesus. This means that we should orally invoke the name of Jesus at baptism (Bernard, p. 75).

Some say that the phrase ‘in the name of Jesus’ means ‘by the authority of’, and that we should be baptized in titles according to Matthew 28:19. We see the same phrase in Matthew 28:19- ‘in the name of’. If the phrase means ‘by the authority of’ in one verse then the same phrase will have the same meaning in another verse. The phrase ‘in the name of’ literally means ‘in the name of’. The key to understanding Matthew 28:19 is to understand that the one name is Jesus (Bernard, p. 61).

Using the name of Jesus is exercising power and authority (Bernard, p. 72). This includes using His power and authority in baptism. The proper way to use the power and authority of God is to use His name. We use His name when we invoke the name Jesus.

We should use the name of Jesus because he died for our sins.

1 Corinthians 1:13  Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

Paul was demonstrating that we should be baptized in the name of the person that died for our sins.

The formula for New Testament baptism has always been in the name of Jesus (Bernard, p. 74). All through history, Jesus was the name used because that’s how the Apostles baptized. Even Martin Luther knew of baptism in Jesus name (Bernard, p. 74).

The natural reading of the phrase ‘baptized in the name of Jesus Christ’ would not allow us to baptize any other way than in the name of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:19 states that baptism is in one single name.

Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

All we need to do is look at how the Apostles obeyed this command. We’ve already seen in the baptismal accounts in the book of Acts that the Apostles baptized in Jesus name.

We also find baptism in the name of Jesus alluded to in the Epistles.

Romans 6:3-4  3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?  4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

1 Corinthians 1:13  Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

1 Corinthians 6:11  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Galatians 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Colossians 2:12  Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

The indication from these verses is that baptism includes the name of Jesus. We see this again in the book of Acts.

Acts 15:17  That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

How is Jesus’ name called over us? The name of Jesus is called over us when we are baptized in Jesus name.

We see the name being called again in James 2:7.

James 2:7  Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?

Both of these verses, Acts 15:17 and James 2:7, point to a specific account where the name was orally invoked over each believer (Bernard, p. 76).

Some of these verses say Lord while others say Christ. The significance is the name of Jesus. Jesus is both Lord and Christ.

Acts 2:36  Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

It is a privilege to be identified with the name of Jesus. We get that identification through baptism in Jesus name. Romans tells us to call on the name of the Lord Jesus for salvation.

Romans 10:9-13  9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.  12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.  13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

We call on the name of the Lord Jesus by repenting in the name of Jesus, being baptized in the name of Jesus, and being filled with the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus.

Acts 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

We then walk with Jesus, living clean, holy lives that are set apart for His glory. Everything we do, we do in the name of Jesus.

Colossians 3:17  And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

If we are to truly recognize Jesus as our savior and make Him the Lord of our lives, we must follow the new birth experience of being born of the water and of the Spirit. This includes being baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.

  1.                                         YHWH HE DEFENDS HIMSELF BY.
                                            STUDY OF ELOHIM AND THEOLOGY
    There is a theological question that is blowing in our teaching, and is: How did the Greeks to change the archaic name, original: YeHSHuWaH the name Jesus? If you are not sure to give a good response, better investigate for yourself, I did a preliminary investigation and this is what I found:
    The Septuagint 250 A.C. translated from ancient times these letters are the sacred name of G_d, writes: YHWH, also known as the tetragrammaton, and is pronounced: Yahweh, pronounced these names in this way, by the authority and oral history among the Jewish people, delegated among parents and children throughout their generations, this name comes to us, Jehová, or Yavé, the eye can see that considerable changes from the original name. G-d said to the Jews, give to know my name. Ex 9. 16 says: “For my name might be proclaimed throughout the land.” What name, then advertise it? YeHSHuWaH released the name of the Father Jn.17.26. In the Aleppo Codex The name of YHWH, in Alexandria, they changed it. The Masoretes initiated these changes, inserting the vowels of Adonai.
    Nm 6. 22-27. It is the priestly prayer. YHWH said: So bless the children of Israel. In Hebrew it is pronounced as follows:
    “Yevarejéja veyishmeréja YHWH: YHWH yaer panáv eloéja vijunéja: yisá
    Eléija panáv YHWH; veyasém Shalom Lecha: Vesamú et Shmi vaaní avarejém to Bnei Yisrael.

    What is the name of your G-d? The Jews, the first thing they did was change the name, and this is what really bothers YHWH. Jer. 23. 27. Ez. 36. 21. They moved away starting with the name, and then embrace any doctrine of libertinism. For religious leaders there was always a justification, such as Exodus 20: 7. Do not take the name of YHWH your Elohim in vain. For this fear, Jews and Gentiles mold HOLY NAME other names of pagan gods: The gods of the Celts, the god Baal, Marduk, Zeus, Jupiter, Allah, etc. Real policy, they do everything possible not to give his real name YHWH himself wrote with his finger on the stone tablets that he gave to Moses on Mount Sinai, Exodus 20. In
    Nm. 25. YHWH, claiming their rights as well as it did in the entire history of Israel, always admonished and punished them harshly not mix with the gods of neighboring nations, Dt 11. 16-20, gods. For the medieval time, the Gentiles as English, German, Chinese, Latinos, have not changed their views, are on their own, it is humiliating for them to recognize the Jews as people of G-d, or accept their customs, traditions, culture , religion, etc. Israel is just for them little thing, look down, and will not accept YHWH as the G_d of gods and Lord of lords, the most they will say is that matter is the same god, Zeus is god.

    The same happened with the name: YeHSHuWaH (Jesus) for many years I thought it was a translation, I always said: To the Jews is the name for the Anglo-Saxons is the name, for Latinos is the name, thinking it was a translation, I must point out that no such translation is not transliteration. That is a transliteration?, Is to put a primer over the other and switch to the language you want to read it, it really is simple. So how did these fantastic Greek apologists, to deliver these names?. To me, these archaic names, original, YHWH, YaHSHuWaH names should be untouchable and unchangeable, for all nations of the earth. They changed only by a desire to conceal the name, was the work of the Masoretes later telling other minds were commissioned to make further changes to the sacred name. For the Greeks the name of: YeHSHuWaH, sacred name, they sounded like: Iesou, something like the name of their god Zeus, but I left a female name, and was not a problem for them to increase S at the end of this term, to the Romans (Latin) will sonetizaron Iesus, Pilate ordered to put its name on the cross, only a joke and not devotion. Please investigate, what it means: Iesus. Then the Castilian give us the name Jesus, which is already fairly handled. Now the big dilemma for translating dialects and languages of the world. But the original name will never change: YaHSHuWaH is HIS NAME. He himself said: “Hitherto have ye asked my name.” In “Jn. 4. 22 said: You worship what you do not know, and we know what we worship, for salvation is from the Jews “, the original name no comes from the Greeks, the Romans, worse than the Germans.
    I visited some men very knowledgeable Jehovah’s Witnesses in the name, subject them to “dominate” I said: Because you change: YHWH the Jehová?, instead of Y you put J, take away the W to put V, and will eliminate H end, if a name so small they do these things they will not do with other texts? the poor witnesses no wanted to hear more, I had to say, do not leave, let’s talk a little more. One of the important things that they said was: “They changed the name to something more pronounceable, so that common people can pronounce better,” many believe in this concept, but as a conciliator Rev. 22. 18?, We cut? qualify to change the original names?.
    To me if there was a big switch, but say no bad faith, to say that people do not shame the name of YHWH But there is power to change a name so important?, There is fear? The prophets were not afraid, fighting, 1R. 18.18,19. 2Cr.18.4-7. Solomon confessed: 2Cr. 6.33, but the influence was so strong that Baal will adore.
    Always made us think that the name of Jesus is Savior, but nothing to do, not, Jesus wants to say otherwise. YaHSHuWaH this if it means Salvation of YHWH The beauty of the case, if you noticed, in the name of YHWH is inserted YeHSHuWaH name his son, my Savior, is that it must be. YaHSHuWaH means: Salvation of YHWH, I mean YeHSHuWaH Salvation, the two ways are very well said, consonants Salvation SH mean, if you would remove YHWH. Rm. 10.13. Says: call upon the name of YeHSHuWaH will be saved, but some text above says: That you have to believe with your heart and confess with our mouth that YeHSHuWaH is the Lord, salvation is not just by pronouncing his name, but by walking in his will. If you evangelize a Jew and says, accept Jesus …….. etc. they interpret this very different name: Jesus for them to say: … … …. and never accept, and not because they want to Judaize. This is deeper than we imagine. The believers at this time we should do what he did King Josiah 2.R. 22. The same attitude was Ezra, Neh. 8. Mourn his presence, and hope that comes from YHWH.
    Doing some kerygmatic, and mine is personal, I have these approaches:

    1 .- The names of Jehová and Jesus so I have not been hindered.
    2 .- G-d in His mercy, has allowed us you’ve “changed” his name.
    3 .- The experience I have of these names Jehová – Jesus, has been an invaluable asset for my life, for the powerful effect that has occurred in my, changing me, filling me with peace, giving me hope. In the 34 years of serving full time, impossible to say that I have been serving a pagan god, or the ego, the Lord who is merciful, has overlooked the translation defects of men, since He and He alone can discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. He. 4.12.
    BUT: anyway, our responsibility as leaders to deliver good teaching, we must do better, as in this case: Say better HIS NAME: for: being able to do good and do not do: It is a sin.

    By reading this document, do so with great maturity, but you sound theological bones, because this issue is for people who are mature, confront this issue and respond, not left in doubt, investigate, talk to other leaders, and draw very useful for spiritual growth. Please do not endorse me with the Messianic Jews, which would be the easiest way out of this mess, they do not know, nor their doctrines. This research for screening do better this doctrine, and not abdicate the biblical evidenced. With love.

  2. History on name of Jesus
    Larry D. Stone, January 13, 2013
    Greetings in the name of Yah, who is Salvation, in Love for Truth I write;
    When I entered my search on the Internet: “History on the name of Jesus” a few sites were offered for consideration. One of those sites was studiesinscripture.com/in-the-name-of-jesus/ Posted by Randy A. Brown on Nov. 26, 2009 In Godhead, Salvation, in which he quotes many verses from the King James Version of the Bible, and references to David K. Bernard (1992) In the Name of Jesus, Word Aflame Press, Hazelwood, MO.
    At the time of my reading of Brown’s post there was 1 Comment posted which is by Wilson E. Aguayo, August 11, 2010, who addressed the original name of our Savior, YHWH (Yahweh) and used two other spellings: YeHSHuWaH and YaHSHuWaH. Wilson said, “the original spelling is YWHW, YaHSHuWaH.”
    We should all be noble as the people of Berea in Acts 17:11, who “daily searched the Scriptures daily to see if what Paul was preaching was true.” They didn’t search Bible translations or versions because no translations existed at that time other than the LXX (the Greek Septuagint, c. 250BC, which was not well received by the Hebrews and never used in the Temple of Yahweh.
    Truth is most valuable because it separates Yah’s disciples from sin and darkness, and brings his children into the Light of his magnificent Salvation, which is the meaning of the Greek word from which we get word, “Sanctify,” in John 17:17, which says, “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.” The word from which the word, ‘sanctify,’ is translated meaning the same thing as the word from which, ‘hallowed,’ is translated: ‘to set-apart, to separate.’ We should understand the truth that our Father has an eternal, personal name that is set apart from all other names in the heavens and on the earth. It is the highest name.
    Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:15 about “speaking the truth in love so we may grow up.” So, to that end I write and teach. In Eph. 4:7-8 Paul said, “Unto each one of us grace has been given as the Anointed One apportioned it. This is why it (Scripture/Psalms 68:18) says: “When He ascended on high, He led captives in His train….”
    Having read Brown’s post, Bernard’s article, and Wilson’s words I must wonder why none of them addressed our Savior’s scriptural and eternal name, “YAH.” In all the Hebrew manuscripts, Psalms 68:18 has then name, “YAH,” identifying the one who ascended on high and led captivity in his train but most English versions of the Bible have his name covered up with the device of using “LORD” in upper case spelling, to hide, mask, cover-up, or otherwise conceal his sacred and divine name from the eyes of the readers.
    We speak his name, “YAH,” each time we say, “Hal-le-lu YAH,” which means, “Praise Yah.” “Hal-le-lu-Yah,” is spoken in all nations in all languages although some tongues, such as Grecians and the Spaniards, leave off the beginning ‘H’ and say “Al-le-lu-Yah.” Nevertheless, they say the name, “YAH,” which we are commanded to praise in Psalms 68:4, “Sing to God, sing praised to his name; extol him, who rides on the clouds, by his name, YAH, and rejoice before him,” New King James Version.
    There is not letter, phonic sign, in the Hebrew or in the Greek language that is required by the English letter, “J.” The “J” letter was not in the English language until 1762AD. The “J” letter is the first letter in the name, “jim,” the name of the 5th letter in the Arabic alphabet. There was no “J” letters use in any English Bible until 1769AD when the Revisers used it in the Revised King James Bible. Therefore, all proper nouns in the Bible spelled with a “J” are hybrid English names, meaning not original to Scripture, the Word of Yahweh. “JAH” was introduced in 1769AD in the RKJV in Psalms 68:4 but prior to that date all the King James versions, including the 1611AD first King James Bible, known as the Authorized Version, the spelling was “IAH” in Psalms 68:4. The first letter in our Father/Savior’s eternal and hallowed name is “Yodh” as seen in all the Hebrew manuscripts. The “Yodh” is transliterated correctly by the English letter, “Y,” as used in the word, “yet.” As we know there is a vast difference in the sound and the meaning between the words, “yet,” and “jet.” Therefore, let us be serious and respectful to our Father/savior’s true name.
    The name, “Jehovah,” is erroneous (a mistaken rendering) according to Webster’s Unabridged English dictionary and according to the Hebrew text and dictionaries and current Bible Exhaustive Concordances. Jehovah is a hybrid English spelling as is also Joshua, Jehoshua, and Jesus, etc. names that are spelled with a “J.”
    When we examine the history on the name, “Jesus,” in Webster’s Unabridged English Dictionary we see how it has evolved down over the many years, but we see his original name is spelled, “Yah-oshua,” and was first altered or substituted with the Hebrew, “Yeshua,” a syncopated variant of the original name, “Yahoshua.”
    When we examine the name, “Jesus,” in Dr. James Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance to the KJV of the Bible (ISBN: 0-7852-4539-1) we look at Greek word # 2424, Iesous, which was substituted for the Hebrew original word # 3091, “Yahoshua;” which we see as the hybrid English words: Jesus and Jehoshua, translated “Jesus (972x), and Joshua cf Hebrew 4:8 (2x) Justus cf Col. 4:11 (1x).”
    The name, “Yah-oshua,” is form from two Hebrew words, # 3050 “Yah” and Hebrew word # 3467, “Yasha,” (yaw-shah’) a prime root meaning, “saves,” “Salvation,” “Deliver,” “Savior,” “to help,” “to give victory,” “to rescue,” “to free,” “to keep safe,” “to keep safe.”
    Therefore, let have understanding of Truth, the Mary was told in Matthew 1:21 to name her son, “’Yah-oshua,’ for he shall save his people from their sins.” Acts 4:12, “Salvation is in no other name, for there is no other name under heaven given among me by which we must be saved.”
    I am aware the Jesus Name United Pentecostal Church (UPC) promotes the name, “Jesus,” as the only name that saves but let us look closer to what David K. Bernard wrote in The Pentecostal Herald, April 2002, a reprint of a October 1988 article in the Pentecostal Herald. In his fourth point, he refers to Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary for the history on the name, ‘Jesus,’ as he takes it through the changes from the beginning word, ‘Yehoshua,’ to the first change ‘Yeshua.’ Bernard says, “Yehoshua comes occurs in Numbers 13:16, and it comes from YAH (a short form of Yahweh) and hoshia (meaning, ‘to help’ with the later connotation, ‘to save’). To be consistent the AY (Assemblies of Yahweh) should not use the contracted form Yahshua but the original for Yehoshua or perhaps even Yahweh-hoshia….”
    I see some inconsistencies in his words since the original name comes from YAH and Hoshia, the spelling would of necessity be, “Yahoshua,” rather than, “Yehoshua,” which later word he suggested to the AY to use. The truth is when Moses changed the name of the son of Nun in Numbers 13:16, the only change was to add the Hebrew letter, yodh, to the original name of the son of Nun, making it clear that Yah is the one who provides Salvation-victory-refuge-help, etc to the Israelites when they crossed the Jordan River to enter the promised land. In making that change the Israelites would not be thinking it was man, the son of Nun, who was their security and deliverer.
    In his 5th point, Bernard says, “As a practical matter, God Himself honors the use of the English name Jesus. When people pray by using this name in faith, they receive the Holy Ghost, answers to prayers, healing, and deliverance from demons. In conclusion, the name Jesus may be pronounced in many different ways in various languages, dialects and accents. In all of its forms, it means the same thing: the one true God of the Old Testament has become our Savior in the historical person of Jesus of Nazareth. When a person uses the name with that understanding, and with faith in Jesus as Lord and Messiah, then regardless of the language he speaks, his prayers will reach the throne of god and his invocation of God’s name will be effective.”
    In all due respect, Trinity believers, who use the title terms: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, can make the exact same claim that God honors the use of these title names because when people pray using these titles in faith, they receive the Holy Ghost (Spirit), answers to prayers, healing, and deliverance from demons, and are saved when baptized in those titles for the forgiveness of their sins.
    There is only one Yahweh (Deut. 6:4) and he manifest himself on this earth in the form of human (Philippians 2:6-8) through the firstborn of Mary (Matthew 1:21). He is the Almighty Revelations 1:8, 18 who WAS dead and behold is alive forever and ever. Yah, who is Salvation, is both Father-Creator and Messiah, son of David just as he said in Revelation 22:16, “I, Yah-oshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root AND the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” The word, “Root,” is a metaphoric word meaning the source of David’s life.
    Peter, an apostle of the Anointed One, gave us good advice in 2nd Peter 1:19-21, “We (apostles) have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do WELL to pay attention to IT (Scripture, not necessarily a certain Bible translation) as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning star rises in your hearts. ABOVE ALL, you must understand that NO prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never has its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
    Yahweh said to his prophet, Joel (Yah-El), in Joel 2:32, “Everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved.” By his Holy Spirit in Peter in Acts 2:21 he said, “Everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.” By his Holy Spirit in Paul in Romans 10:13, he said, “Everyone who calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.” Ananias told Saul in Acts 22:16, “Now what are you waiting for? Get up! Be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on His name.” By his Holy Spirit he explains water baptism in 1st Peter 3:21-22, the water of the great flood “symbolizes baptism that now save you also – NOT the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you BY the resurrection of Yah-oshua, the anointed One, who has gone into heaven and is a God’s right hand – with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.” Peter told the believing people who heard him preaching the gospel in Acts 2, who were “cut to the heart” with the message, “Repent and be baptized, everyone of you, in the name of Yah, who is salvation (Yah-oshua), the Anointed One, for the forgiveness of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, for the promise (of Yah’s Spirit, Joel 2:28ff) is for you, for your children and for all people who are yet to be born, even as many as Yahweh our God shall call,” Acts 2:38-39.
    Paul describes baptism as a burial in Romans 6:3-5, “Don’t you know that all of us WHO ERE BAPTIZED INTO THE ANOINTED ONE, YAHOSHUA, were baptized into His death? Therefore, we were buried with Him through baptism into death IN ORDER THAT, just as the Anointed One was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, WE TOO may live a NEW LIFE. If we have been united with Him like this in His death, we will certainly also be united with Him in His resurrection.”
    Paul also describes true conversion as be clothed with the Anointed One in Galatians 3:26-27, “You are all sons of God through faith in the Anointed One, Yahoshua, for all of you WHO WERE BAPTIZED INTO THE ANOINTED ONE have clothed yourself with the Anointed One.”
    The very action of being immersed (buried in baptismal water) in the name of Yah, who is Salvation, is an outward expressions and acknowledgement of one’s faith and trust in Yahweh and his shed blood in atonement for sins cf. Acts 20:28. Baptism, like repentance and confession, is a active faith by the grace of God, not of works so that no one can boast.
    Yahweh promised in Isaiah 45:17, “Israel will be saved by Yahweh with an everlasting salvation; you will never be put to shame, or disgraced to ages everlasting.” He began fulfilling that promise on the first Pentecostal day after his death, resurrection and ascension (Acts 2). Yahweh said in Isaiah 45:21-24, “There is no Mighty One apart from me, a righteous Supreme Being and Savior; there is none but me. Turn to me and be saved all you people of the earth; for I am the Supreme Being and there is no other. By Myself I have sworn (cf. Heb 6:13) my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will NOT BE REVOKED: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me: ‘In Yahweh alone are righteousness and strength.’”
    Yah-oshua said in John 14:6, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” He said in John 18:37, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”
    In the words of Paul in Galatians 4:16, “Have I became your enemy because I have told you the truth?” Take time to search and see if I have spoken truth about our Savior’s name.
    “Oh Yahweh, how majestic is your name in all the earth,” Psalms 8:1, 9. “Praise ye Yah! Praise, O servants of Yahweh praise the name of Yahweh. Let the name of Yahweh be praised both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of Yahweh is to be praised,” Psalms 113:1-3. “Your name, O Yahweh, endures forever; your renown, O Yahweh, through all generations,” Psalms 135:13.
    In Yah’s service and because he first loved me and died for me, I love him and I share these truths.

  3. Who Named Yahoshua?
    Larry D. Stone, January 14, 2013
    “The word of Yahweh has brought me insult and reproach all day long. But if I say, ‘I will not mention him or speak any more in his name,’ his word is in my heart like a fire, shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot,” Jeremiah 20:8-9. Wherefore, I beg Randy A. Brown to post this, my second comment.
    After posting my article or comment on the History on the name of Jesus, and shared it with others on internet, I have been asked: “Who gave him the name, Yahoshua?” Since my objective is to teach truth, and since the Yahweh’s word is truth (John 17:17), it’s my intent to allow Scripture to answer that question, and also to present material here on the misconception that Savior’s name is of Hebrew origin. So, in order to achieve that goal we must understand how to use Bible translations of Scripture, and to look at the Scripture words through the use of exhaustive Bible concordances, and understand why his hallowed name has been avoided and who started that injunction. So then, let us get this matter in perspective to learn truth rather than say: ‘Don’t confuse me with the facts’ as some people have said.
    Dr. Solomon Zeitlin in the Jewish Quarterly Review, Vol. 59, No. 4, April 1969, said, “In the biblical period Yahweh was a proper name, for the God of Israel, and ethnic God. After the Restoration, those who adhered to the view of the universality of God maintained that Yahweh was not an ethnic God but is God of the universe, the God of all peoples. To propagate this view THEY DECLARED that the word, ‘Yahweh,’ in the Pentateuch should be pronounced, ‘Adonai,’ to signify that He is the Lord, Master, of the universe….To sum up: the INJUNCTION that the name, ‘Yahweh,’ should not be pronounced but it should be pronounced, ‘Adonai,’ was introduced shortly after the Restoration.”
    After the Hebrews were freed from the 70 years Babylonian captivity, since Yah’s servants, Ezra and Nehemiah, served him during the Restoration of the Temple of Yahweh, and since they both died around c. 450BC without writing anything about the Jewish Injunction Law, it is reasonable to conclude that injunction was enacted by 400BC.
    The way the VIPs in Judaism implemented the Injunction Law of Judaism was to have the scribes insert the vowels of the word, ‘Adonai,’ with the constants, ‘YHWH,’ in the Scripture to signal the Hebrew reader to say, ’Adonai,’ instead of saying, ‘Yahweh,’ in such cases most English versions will render it, ‘LORD,’ in all capital letters. However, in many passages of Scripture the word, ‘Adonai,’ is either before or after the hallowed name, ‘Yahweh,’ which created a problem for the reader and would cause the reader to appear to be stammering by saying, ‘Adonai, Adonai.’ Therefore, to prevent the stammering appearance of the reader the VIPs instructed the scribes in such verses to insert the vowels of the word, ‘Elohim,’ with the constants, ‘YHWH,’ which served to instruct the Hebrew reader of the Scripture to say, ‘Adonai Elohim,’ avoiding the pronunciation of the highest name in the heavens and on earth, in such cases most English versions will render those two words, ‘Lord GOD,’ with the word, ‘GOD,’ spelled in all capital letters.
    Until the second century AD all the man-made laws of the Jewish elders were in oral form, so the Injunction Law of Judaism was no exception. Since those laws have all been written down by the end of the second century AD we can read the injunction law in Sanhedrin 10:1, “It is written, ‘YAH,’ but it is read (spoken) ‘Adonai.’”
    The result of that injunction law is that many Bible translators have fell under the yoke of the man-made law and failed to print our Father/Savior’s hallowed name in the Bible versions. Example: Dr. Robert Young in Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible [ISBN: 0-9177006-29-1] under entry # 5 for the word, ‘LORD,’ shows us the Hebrew letters, ‘yodh-he-waw-he,’ which he says transliterates, “Yahweh,” but he then says, “Read it ‘Adonai.’”
    Let us not be confused for one minute thinking the VIPs in Judaism made some grand discovery that Yahweh is God over the universe. They used that as a smoke screen to cover their man-made rules, the end result was clear violation of the Scripture. O Satan from the beginning in the Garden of Eden has been twisting and turning and spinning the Word of Yahweh, his helper to this day follow him and do the same thing, (cf. Jer. 23:27; Jer. 23:33-40; 2nd Peter 3:16)!
    Yahweh has always been the Supreme Being of all mankind, “I am Yahweh, the God of all mankind. Is anything to hard for me?” Jer. 32:27; “The God of all the kingdoms,” Isa. 37:16; but some nations “forget God,” Psa. 9:17. “Yah is the God of gods,” Psa. 136:2. “Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer. For Yahweh, your God, is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes,” Deut. 10:16-17. Amen! Yah, who is Salvation; “The Lamb is the “King of kings and Lord of lords,” Rev. 17:14; 19:16; 1st Tim. 6:15;
    In Psalms 68:4 the Yahweh’s message is as translated by the New King James Version of the English Bible, “Sing to God, sing praises to His name; extol Him, who rides on the clouds, by His name, YAH, and rejoice before Him.”
    In Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance to the KJV, he has assigned the number 3050 to the word, ‘YAH,’ which is spelled JAH in hybrid English used in all King James Versions of the English Bible since that hybrid form was introduced in the 1769AD publication of the Revised King James Version. Their mistake has since been corrected when the translators of the New King James Version used the correct spelling, YAH, in Psalms 68:4; Isaiah 12:2; Isaiah 26:4 and Isaiah 38:11. Although in all the other thousands of verses in Scripture the NKJV continued to use the device used in most English versions of the Bible of masking, covering up, or otherwise concealing the Supreme Beings hallowed and eternal name with the letters, “LORD,” in upper case spelling, and sometimes concealing it with the letters, “GOD,” in upper case spelling.
    When we look up the word, ‘JAH,’ in Strong’s concordance [ISBN: 0-7852-4539-1] he takes us to his Hebrew Dictionary and word #3050 then shows us the Hebrew letters, ‘yodh – he. The transliterated spelling is, YAH. Dr. Strong says it’s “a contracted form of Hebrew word # 3068, and means the same; It’s the sacred name – it is translated JAH (1x) the LORD (48x); it’s the most vehement. Strong says compare personal names ending in ‘iah,’ as well as ending in ‘jah.’” Therefore, we know the spelling, ‘YAH,” standing alone is used at least 49 times in the Hebrew manuscripts, which count does not include the many personal names in the Scripture that include the spelling, ‘YAH,’ which we read in the hybrid forms of ‘iah’ and ‘jah’ in most English versions.
    Let us examine the hybrid-English name, “Elijah,” which is also rendered, “Eliah,” and the attempted Greek transliteration, “Elias.” It is Strong’s Hebrew word # 452, and we see his true and original name in the Scriptures is, “EliYah,” which is in the Scripture 71 times. “EliYah,” is made of two Hebrew words: # 410, “Eli,” and # 3050, ‘Yah.’ The prophet’s name, “EliYah,” means, “Yah is my God,” or “My God is Yah.”
    The hybrid-English name, “Isaiah,” is Strong’s Hebrew word #3470, ‘YeshaYah,’ is in the Scriptures 39 times. ‘YeshaYah,’ is made of two Hebrew words: # 3467, ‘Yesha,’ and word # 3050, ‘Yah.’ The prophet’s name, “Yesha-Yah,” means, “Yah has saved.”
    The hybrid-English name, ‘Adoni-jah,’ Hebrew word # 138, is form from two Hebrew words: # 113, “Adon,” meaning, “Lord;’ and # 3050, ’Yah,’ our Father/Savior’s eternal and hallowed name. ‘Adoni-Yah,’ means, ‘My Lord is Yah,’ in other words, ‘Yah is my Lord.’
    In his exhaustive Bible concordance, at the front of the Hebrew dictionary, Dr. Strong has supplied us with the Hebrew alphabet and the transliterated value or sound into the English language. Therefore, the reader can see those letters and compare then with the letters shown for each Hebrew word in the Hebrew Dictionary. So then, when we look at Hebrew word #3068 we see the four letters named: “Yodh-he-waw-he” (YHWH) ‘Yahweh,’ which sounds like, ‘Yah-way.’ Likewise, he has the Greek alphabet in the front of the Greek Dictionary.
    Before I present the verses in evidence of the eternity of our Father and Savior’s name, I want to refer to a statement made in “Names of God, Lesson 1, Sept. 6, 1998, Introduction,” in the “Fall 1998 Adult Student Handbook; Word Aflame, Pentecostal Publishing House 8855 Dunn Road Hazelwood, Mo 63042-2299.”
    “The king James Version of the Bible uses typographical conventions to indicate which Hebrew word is being translated as ‘Lord’ or ‘God.’ When ‘LORD’ appears in all capital letters (with the final three letters being in small capitals), it indicates that the Hebrew word being translated is Jehovah (Hebrew, YAHWEH). The word ‘God’ is translated from some form of the Hebrew ‘El,’ which has to do with power or strength. The word, ‘Lord,’ (with capital ‘L’ and the rest in lower case) is translated from some form of the Hebrew ‘Adonai,’ which means ‘Master.’ (See Deut. 10:17).”
    Their of the term, “typographical conventions,” is a smooth way of saying the King James translators did neither translate nor transliterate the word, YAH or YAHWEH, which is found in the Hebrew manuscripts. It is another way of say the same thing the translators of the New International Version said in its Preface:
    “In regard to the divine name YHWH, commonly referred to as the Tetragrammaton, the translators adopted the device used in most English versions of rendering that name as ‘LORD’ in capital letters to distinguish it from ‘Adonai,’ a Hebrew word rendered, ‘Lord,’ for which small letters are used. Where the two names stand together in the Old Testament as a compound name of God, they are rendered ‘Sovereign LORD.’”
    The NIV always uses that device, ‘LORD,’ in place of ‘YAH’ or “YAHWEH,’ and it never uses the word, ‘GOD,’ in all capital letter, a practice of the translators of the KJV when our Father’s title name, ‘Adonai,’ and his hallowed name, ‘Yah/Yahweh,’ are in the Hebrew manuscripts next to each other.
    For all verses where the title, “Adonai,” and the hallowed name, “Yahweh,” is use side beside in the Hebrew manuscripts consult Dr. Robert Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible [ISBN: 0-917006-29-1] which is word keyed to the KJV. Look under the word, LORD, entry # 2, ‘Adonai,’ which is translated correctly, ‘Lord.’ Observe the many times that the word ‘GOD’ in all capital letters is shown beside the word, ‘Lord.’ In all those verses the word, ‘GOD,’ is the device used in place of printing the hallowed and eternal name, ‘Yahweh.’
    Since they use the “device used in most English versions” of the Bible by concealing our Father/Savior’s eternal and hallowed name, apparently the translators of the KJV, translators of the NIV, and other translator who do the same, do not have any problem with following the religious dedicates, commands, or rules of men passed down through traditional mind-set in violation of God’s Word which is clearly condemned by our Savior in Matthew 15:1-14; Mark 7:1-13, and called, ‘Vain Worship.’ Thank Yahweh there are at least 5 or 6 Bible versions that do print our Father/Savior’s name in all the places it is in the Scripture, plus more and more study Bibles including the KJV and the NIV mention the name, Yahweh, in their commentary.
    In the Interlinear NIV Hebrew-English Old Testament [ISBN: 0-310-40200-X] editor John R. Kohlenberger III has the Hebrew alphabet and transliteration of the Hebrew letter to English, on page xiii in the preface on: “How To Use This Volume.” On page xx, Introduction, he says, “The proper name of God (yody-he-waw-he-) is translated, ‘LORD,’ in the NIV and most other English versions. The NIV Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament consistently renders this name as ‘Yahweh.’ This is the spelling and pronunciation generally acknowledged by Bible scholars. Further, according to Scripture, this is go’s special name, and it has no direct connection with the idea of lordship. Thus the use of the name Yahweh is a major – and, I think, meaningful – exception to the NIV.”
    This is a great book for the serious Bible student because the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia text, from which most Bible are translated, is available to read, and the English translation is below each Hebrew word and most important is the actual hallowed and eternal name of our Father-Savior transliterated for the reader to view. As in the NIV Study Bible, this Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament has the original words, “Hallelu Yah,” in notation for the words, “Praise the LORD,” used in the NIV text.
    What does the Scripture say about the existence of our Father/Savior’s name?
    His name, Yahweh, is used almost 7,000x in the Scripture. It’s use for the first time in Genesis 2:4 and 11x in chapter 2, 8 x in chapter 3 and 11x in chapter 4, which chapter closes with these words: “Seth also had a son, and named him Enosh; at which time men BEGAN to call on (invoke) the name of Yahweh,” Gen. 4:26.
    It would be impossible for men to invoke the name, Yahweh, if the Creator had not made his name known to them. In Genesis the name, ‘Yahweh,’ is used repeatedly in the Scripture. According to Scripture it was Eve who first spoke the name, ‘Yahweh:’ “With the help of Yahweh I have brought forth a man,” Gen. 4:1.
    In Gen. 12:8, near Bethel and Ai, Abram (Abraham) “built an altar to Yahweh and called on (invoked) the name of Yahweh.” In Gen. 21:33, at Beersheba, Abraham planted a tamarisk tree “and there he called on (invoked) the name of Yahweh, the Eternal God.” In Gen. 22:14 where Abraham was going to offer up his son, Isaac, and Yahweh stopped him and provided a ram for the sacrifice, Abraham named that place, “Yahweh-Yireh,” which means, “Yahweh will provide, and to this day it is said, ‘On the mountain of Yahweh it will be provided.” In Gen. 24:12, Abraham’s servant, who was sent to Aram Naharaim to get a wife for Isaac, “prayed, ‘O Yahweh, God of my master Abraham give me success today and show kindness to my master, Abraham.” At Beersheba when Isaac was grown, “Isaac built an altar and called on (invoked) the name of Yahweh,” Gen. 26:25. Later when Isaac son, Jacob, was on his way from Beersheba to Haran, he saw a stairway reaching into the heavens, “There above it, stood Yahweh, and he said, ‘I am Yahweh, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the long on which you are lying…” Gen. 28:13. Many years later before he died when Jacob was blessing his sons he said, “I look for your deliverance O Yahweh,” Gen. 49:18.
    Therefore, the Scriptural evidence is overwhelming that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all knew the name, Yahweh, and they invoked it, contrary to the miss-translations given in most English versions of the Bible in Ex. 6:3, when they punctuated the Hebrew incorrectly making Yah’s message a declamatory statement instead of an interrogatory statement turning Yah’s message 180 degrees reverse, saying, ‘by my name the LORD (Yahweh) I did NOT make myself know to them.’ The NIV alternate translation in the margin-notes of Ex. 6:3-4 are correct according to evidence of the Scripture: “God said to Moses, ‘I am Yahweh. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty (El-Shaddai) and by my name Yahweh was I not know to them? I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, where they lived as aliens.”
    All of God’s Covenants were made in his name, Yahweh, which is why it’s called his ‘Covenant Name.’ I am not trying to kill someone’s ‘sacred cow,’who worship certain Bible translations as if they are infallible. Translations of the Bible are NOT infallible but “Yahweh’s word is forever settled in heaven,” Psalms 119:89. He said in Isa. 46:8, “The word of our God shall stand forever.” He said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my Word shall not depart,” Matthew 24:33; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33.
    Here is a good example of an error in the Authorized Version of the King James Bible published in 1611AD: in Luke 4:27, “And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elizeus the prophet; and none of them was cleaned saving Naaman the Syrian.”
    How did the name of the Greek god, “Zeus,” replace the name of “Yah” in the prophet’s name, EliYah? That was one error that had to be quickly corrected in a revised version of the first King James Bible.
    A digital copy of the 1611AD King James Version of the Bible can be purchased in hardcover as of 2011, The 400th Year Anniversary Edition, published by Zondervan Bibles.com [ISBN: 978-0-310-44029-1]
    Evidence in the Scripture for the eternity of our Father/Savior’s hallowed name is found in Isaiah 63:16, “but you are our Father, though Abraham does not know us ” (House of Judah) “or Israel acknowledge us,” (House of Judah) ” you, O Yahweh, are our Father, our Redeemer, FROM OF OLD (‘FROM EVERLASTING,’ KJV) IS YOUR NAME.”
    Out of the near 7,000X God’s name is in the Hebrew manuscripts, the translators of the King James Version of the Bible in only four places attempted to enter God’s name even though they used the erroneous hybrid-English, ‘Jehovah:’ Exodus 6:3; Psalms 83:18; Isaiah 12:2; Isaiah 26:4.
    Since I have already presented the Scripture message of Ex. 6:3, I will now quote from Scripture Psalms 83:18, “Let them know that you, whose name is Yahweh – that you alone are the Most High over all the earth;” and quote Isa. 12:2, “Surely God is my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid for Yah is my strength and my song; Yahweh has become my Salvation!” and quote Isa. 26:4, “Trust in Yahweh forever! For in Yah because Yahweh is the Rock eternities (‘Rock of Ages,’ KJV)”
    There are more Scriptures where our Father/Savior’s eternal name, “Yah,” is used in the same verse with its extended form, “Yah-weh.” Perhaps it is better to view the latter as a suffix attached to ‘Yah,’ and view “Yah-oshua,” as a suffix attached to his name, “Yah.”
    Strong’s Hebrew word # 1954 is the birth name of the son of Nun, (Numbers 13:8) which means, “Salvation. Saves, Helper,” the exact same spelling letter for letter in the Hebrew with the addition of the Hebrew letter, “yodh,” is Hebrew word # 3091, “Yah’oshu’a,” which is the new name for the son of Nun, (Numbers 13:16; 1st Ch. 7:27) and means, “Yah Saves,” which is “the exact same name as Mary’s first born” (See the NIV Introduction to the Book of Joshua, ISBN: 0-310-92573-9).
    Psalms 118:19-20, “Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will enter through them. I will give thanks to Yah. This is the gate of Yahweh; righteous one may enter through Him.”
    Psalms 122:4, Jerusalem – “Where the tribes go up, even the tribes of Yah, for an ordinance for Israel. To give thanks to the name of Yahweh.”
    Psalms 130:3,“If you, Yah, should mark iniquities, O Yahweh, who could stand?”
    Psalms 135:4, “For Yah has chosen Jacob to Himself – Israel for His own possession.”
    Psalms 150:6, “Let everything that has breath praise Yah. Hal-le-lu Yah (Praise ye Yah).
    Psalms 77:11, “I will remember the deeds of Yah; Yes! I will remember your miracles of long ago.”
    Psalms 89:8, “O Yahweh, Elohim of Host, who is a mighty one like you, O Yah? and your faithfulness is all around you.”
    Psalms 94:7, “And they say, ‘Yah will not see; the God of Jacob pays no heed.’”
    Psalms 94:12, “Blessed is the man whom you correct, O Yah.”
    Psalms 102:18, “This shall be written FOR the generations to come; and a people which shall be created shall praise Yah.”
    Psalms 115:17-18, “The dead praise not Yah, neither any that go down into silence, but we will bless Yah from this time forth and FOREVER. Hal-le-lu Yah (Praise ye Yah).”
    Psalms 116:6, “Yahweh preserves the simple: I was brought low, and Yah saved me.” [The Hebrew word here for “Yah saved” is Hebrew word #3091, “Yah-oshu’a” a combination of two Hebrew words, #3050 ‘Yah,” + # 3467, “saved”].
    Psalms 118:5, “Out of my distress I called upon Yah; Yah answered me by setting me FREE.”
    Psalms 118:14, “Yah is my strength and my song; and he has become my Salvation.”
    Psalms 118:17-18, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the deeds of Yah; Yah has chastened me grievously, but he has not given me over to death.”
    Now let us have understanding when the Son said in John 5:43, “I come in my Father’s name but you receive me not but if another should come in his own name you would receive him.” He is God incarnate, Yah who came in the flesh! Yah came here to SAVE his people from their sins. Out of all the title and attributes Yah possesses, the title be bore when here in the flesh is the most important to humanity, Yah-oshu’a, “Yah the Savior,” the only one who SAVES, “the only name given under heaven among men whereby we must be SAVED; Salvation is in no other name,” Acts 4:12.
    Yah is eternal from everlasting to everlasting and so is his name, “You are our Father; our Redeemer, from everlasting is your name…you, O Yahweh, are our Father.” Isaiah 63:16.
    A bit of history of high value: F. F. Bruce on page 181-3 in ‘The Books and the Parchments’ {ISBN: 0-8007-1214-5) quotes a 4th century AD historian, Eusebius, in Eccl. History Vol. 10, and said: ‘When Pantaenus, head of the catechetical school in Alexdanra, Egypt about AD 180, went on a mission to India, it is reported that his coming had been preceded by the Gospel of Matthew among some who knew Christ (Anointed One) there. Bartholomew, one of the apostles, had preached to them and left behind Matthew’s writing in the scrip of the Hebrews.’” So,Mt 1;21 would have the name, ‘Yah-oshu’a,’ the name and title of the only righteous God and Savior. He would not have a substituted Greek attempted transliteration of the syncopated word, “Yeshua,” which Orthodox Jews use to this day in place of our Father/Savior’s hallowed, eternal and saving name, ‘Yah-oshu’a.’ Cf. Hebrew of Acts 26:14-15.
    Larry D. Stone, a son of Yahweh. May Yah bless you with understand as in Luke 24:44-45.
