The Names Of The Father And The Son

This Revelation 18:4 – Come Out Of Her study discusses the names of the Father and the Son.

I think that one of the biggest deceptions is that the enemy has caused people to not understand the Father’s personal, covenant name.  The enemy has conditioned people to call Him by the titles of God and Lord, and has pushed aside the Tetragrammaton, which is declared in the Scriptures.

The New King James Bible clearly admits that it changed the Father’s covenant name,
The Covenant Name of God in the Old Testament, represented by the Hebrew consonants YHWH is translated “Lord” or “God” as it was in the King James.”

Friend, we should never change the Covenant Name of the Father!

The titles of ‘God’ and ‘Lord’ are generic terms. If someone says that they believe in god, that is not telling you whom they serve.

Their god could be Allah or Buddha or Satan.

We have been deceived into calling our Father by generic terms like ‘God’ and ‘Lord’; but He has declared the importance of His name.

Let’s start by focusing on Messiah’s name, as it’s a topic that is debated a lot these days.

People debate about whether we should use the Greek/English Iesous/Jesus, or the Hebrew Yahusha, or the Aramaic Y’shua; so let’s look at the history of the name Iesous/Jesus.

Millions of people throughout history have used the Greek name Jesus, including great theologians such as Albert Barnes, Adam Clarke, Charles Spurgeon, John Gill, Matthew Poole, and many more.

The preachers of the Great Awakening, in which they spread around the world and have great revival meetings in America, and spread Bibles around the world; used the Greek name Jesus.

Today people use the name Jesus because they have not been taught the Hebrew and Aramaic names, which Messiah would have been called by His parents and disciples.

We are blessed to have been shown the Hebrew and Aramaic names, but we simply cannot declare that people who use the name Jesus are lost.   All we can do is share the truth about the Hebrew and Aramaic names, and share why we prefer to use them, and let the Spirit move in people’s lives.

But there are many people who’ve come out of Christianity, who are now condemning the Greek/English name; and even proclaiming that you can’t be saved if you use it.

They proclaim that Roman Emperor Constantine created the name Iesous Christos, and that it’s pagan and pointing to a false messiah; so let’s look at the evidence.

People proclaim that Jesus Christ means ‘Hail Zeus‘ and ‘earth pig‘; but I’ve consulted with a believer who lives in Athens Greece; and she said “Absolutely no! Neither of them is true and I hear this first time in my life. No of course not.”

Here’s a video that shows how the name Iesous/Jesus was derived from the Hebrew/Aramaic, and that it’s origin means Yahuah saves.

The Greek Septuagint Old Testament renders Joshua’s name as Iesous (Ιησους), which is the same New Testament Greek word that is rendered as Jesus in English.

The Old Testament was translated from Hebrew into Greek, which is known as the Septuagint.  It is estimated that the first five books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or Pentateuch, were translated in the mid-3rd century BCE and the remaining texts were translated in the 2nd century BCE.

According to an ancient document called the Letter of Aristeas, it is believed that 70 to 72 Jewish scholars were commissioned during the reign of Ptolemy Philadelphus to carry out the task of translation. The term “Septuagint” means seventy in Latin, and the text is so named to the credit of these 70 scholars.

The English names Joshua and Jesus are derived from the same Hebrew word 3091 יְהוֹשׁוּעַ Yehoshua or יְהוֹשֻׁעַ Yehoshua.

Joshua 1:1 in the Greek Septuagint, reads “ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὴν τελευτὴν Μωυσῆ, εἶπε Κύριος τῷ ᾿Ιησοῖ υἱῷ Ναυὴ τῷ ὑπουργῷ Μωυσῆ λέγων·”

The King James Bible reads, “Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua (᾿Ιησοῖ, Iesous) the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying,”

We can see that the Greek Septuagint Old Testament Joshua, and the Greek New Testament Jesus, and are both based on the Greek Iēsous.

The question becomes, why did the Bible translators render Messiah’s name as Jesus instead of Joshua.  We can see the translators conflict in these two verses, which are about Joshua, but were rendered by the KJ as Jesus.

The King James reads, “Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;” Acts 7:45

The Scriptures (ISR) reads, “which our fathers, having received it in turn, also brought with Yehoshua into the land possessed by the nations, whom Elohim drove out before the face of our fathers until the days of Dawiḏ,” Acts 7:45

The King James reads, “For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” Hebrews 4:8

The Scriptures (ISR) reads, “For if Yehoshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.” Hebrews 4:8

The Greek Septuagint Old Testament use of Iesous is important, because it destroys the false teaching that Emperor Constantine created the name Iesous, which became Jesus.

Messiah’s name was written on a plaque that was placed over Him when He was crucified, and His name was written in Greek.

“And there was also an inscription written over Him in letters of Greek, and Roman (Latin), and Hebrew: THIS IS THE SOVEREIGN OF THE YEHUḎIM.” Luke 23:38

Polycarp, who lived from 70-155 AD, was a direct pupil of the Apostle John. 

Here’s a link to an Epistle to the Philippians that he wrote, which shows the Greek and English.  In the Greek it is Ἰησοῦ Χρισῷ, which in English is Jesus Christ.

1:1 Συνεχάρην ὑμῖν μεγάλως ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χρισῷ, δεξαμένοις τὰ μιμήματα τῆς ἀληθοῦς ἀγάπης καὶ προπέμψασιν, ὡς ἐπέβαλεν ὑμῖν, τοὺς ἐνειλημένους τοῖς ἁγιοπρεπέσιν δεσμοῖς, ἅτινά ἐστιν διαδήματα τῶν ἀληθῶς ὑπὸ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν ἐκλελεγμένων·

¹I have greatly rejoiced with you in our Lord Jesus Christ, because ye have followed the example of true love [as displayed by God], and have accompanied, as became you, those who were bound in chains, the fitting ornaments of saints, and which are indeed the diadems of the true elect of God and our Lord;

So right there is proof that early church fathers used the Greek transliteration of Messiah’s name, in the 1st-2nd century.

Ignatius of Antioch, who lived from 30–107 AD, was a contemporary of Messiah and the Apostle John.

In his Epistle to the Ephesians, we see the Greek “Love in Christ Jesus.”

Αποδεξαμενος εν θεω το πολυαγαθητον σου ονομα, ο κεκτησθε φυσει δικαια κατα πιστιν και αγαπην εν Χριστω Ιησου τω σωτηρι ημων· μιμηται οντες θεου, αναζωπυρησαντες εν αιματι θεου το συγγενικον εργον τελειως απηρτισατε·

In his Epistle to the Magnesians, we see the Greek “Jesus Christ.”

Γνους υμων το πολυευτακτον της κατα θεον αγαπης, αγαλλιωμενος, προειλαμην εν πιστει Ιησου Χριστου προσλαλησαι υμιν.

Jewish historian Josephus, who wrote the Antiquities of the Jews, used Messiah’s Greek name Ἰησοῦς, which is Iêsous, which became Jesus in English.

Γίνεται δὲ κατὰ τοῦτον τὸν χρόνον Ἰησοῦς σοφὸς ἀνήρ, εἴγε ἄνδρα αὐτὸν λέγειν χρή: ἦν γὰρ παραδόξων ἔργων ποιητής, διδάσκαλος ἀνθρώπων τῶν ἡδονῇ τἀληθῆ δεχομένων, καὶ πολλοὺς μὲν Ἰουδαίους, πολλοὺς δὲ καὶ τοῦ Ἑλληνικοῦ ἐπηγάγετο: ὁ χριστὸς οὗτος ἦν. καὶ αὐτὸν ἐνδείξει τῶν πρώτων ἀνδρῶν παρ᾽ ἡμῖν σταυρῷ ἐπιτετιμηκότος Πιλάτου οὐκ ἐπαύσαντο οἱ τὸ πρῶτον ἀγαπήσαντες: ἐφάνη γὰρ αὐτοῖς τρίτην ἔχων ἡμέραν πάλιν ζῶν τῶν θείων προφητῶν ταῦτά τε καὶ ἄλλα μυρία περὶ αὐτοῦ θαυμάσια εἰρηκότων. εἰς ἔτι τε νῦν τῶν Χριστιανῶν ἀπὸ τοῦδε ὠνομασμένον οὐκ ἐπέλιπε τὸ φῦλον

Ginetai de kata touton ton chronon Iêsous sophos anêr, eige andra auton legein chrê: ên gar paradoxôn ergôn poiêtês, didaskalos anthrôpôn tôn hêdonêi talêthê dechomenôn, kai pollous men Ioudaious, pollous de kai tou Hellênikou epêgageto: ho christos houtos ên. kai auton endeixei tôn prôtôn andrôn par’ hêmin staurôi epitetimêkotos Pilatou ouk epausanto hoi to prôton agapêsantes: ephanê gar autois tritên echôn hêmeran palin zôn tôn theiôn prophêtôn tauta te kai alla muria peri autou thaumasia eirêkotôn. eis eti te nun tôn Christianôn apo toude ônomasmenon ouk epelipe to phulon.

“Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man, for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews, and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ; and when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him, for he appeared to them alive again the third day, as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him; and the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct to this day.”
Here is the text in Greek.

Josephus in Antiquities of the Jews Book 20, Chapter 9; mentioned Messiah again, when speaking about His brother James being killed.

“so he assembled the sanhedrin of judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, (ton adelphon Iesou tou legomenou Christou), whose name was James,”

These witnesses clearly show that the Greek transliteration of Messiah’s name has been used since the 1st century, and the name Jesus Christ is not an invention of Constantine in the 4th century, as some people proclaim!

The prophecies in Revelation have been fulfilled by saints who used the Greek transliteration of Messiah’s name.

This validates the Greek transliteration of Messiah’s name. Read Revelation Timeline Decoded

Here’s a question for people who deny the validity of the Greek transliteration of Messiah’s name:

Where is written evidence of the saints using Messiah’s Hebrew name from 100-2000 AD?

Please comment below.

The title of Christ and Christians is valid.

The Christ child was foretold from creation, in the stars, so the enemy has created many pagan gods that are named Christos, and have a derivative that name, such as Lord Krishna in the religion of Hinduism. Roman Emperor Constantine worshiped “Christos Helios” which means “Christ-The-True-Sun.” “Chrestos” as revered by Greeks and Romans was none other than “Osiris,” a Sun-diety of Egypt.

Acts 11:26 in the King James reads, “And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.”

The word ‘Christians’ is the Greek word 5546 Christianos khris-tee-an-os’

The Aramaic-English New Testament uses the word Kristianay.

Gentile believers in Antioch copied the Scriptures and they used the name Kristianay, a term for Messianics.

So the title of Christ was not created by Constantine, as it was used in the first few centuries by the disciples who wrote the New Testament books.

The Apostle John used the Greek word antichristos to describe the enemy of Messiah, the Christ; once again validating the title of Christ.

Jesus Christ is not the antichrist of Scripture!

Some of the people who use the Hebrew name of Messiah, are now proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the antichrist.

The office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, are the antichrist beast of Scripture.  They are antichrist, because they have proclaimed to be a substitute Christ, Jesus Christ in the flesh.

When Messiah returns, He is going to capture the antichrist Pope and false prophet Jesuit General, two real men; and cast them into the fiery pit.

By claiming that Jesus Christ is the antichrist, people are effectively deflecting blame away from the Popes of Rome.

We should guide people back to the Scriptural calendar, the Holy Feast Days, the Sabbath, and the Hebrew names; but proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the antichrist is a wrong approach.

I would be very careful making that statement, because there are many people who are saved, who use the name Jesus.

Does the name Iesous/Jesus mean ‘The Father saves’?

Names in Scripture have meaning.  Messiah came in His Father’s name.  Messiah came to save.  His name should mean “the Father saves”.

So let’s look at some Greek and Hebrew words to see what the underlying meaning of Jesus really is:

The name Jesus in Strong’s Greek Dictionary is IESOUS or IHSOUS.

Strong’s Greek 2424. Ιησους Iesous: of Hebrew origin (3091); Jesus (i.e. Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites:—Jesus.

Strong’s Hebrew 3091 means Jehovah-saved.

@howshuwa` yeh-ho-shoo’-ah or Yhowshua {yeh-ho-shoo’-ah}; from 3068 and 3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), The Jewish leader:—Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare 1954, 3442.

Strong’s Hebrew 3068 points to Jehovah.

Y@hovah yeh-ho-vaw’ from 1961; (the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God:—Jehovah, the Lord. Compare 3050

Strong’s Hebrew 3050 points to Jah/Yah

Yahh yaw – contraction for 3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name:—Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Compare names in “-iah,” “- jah.”

Strong’s Hebrew 3467 points to salvation, being the deliverer, getting the victory; which is what our Messiah did.

yasha` yaw-shah’ – a primitive root; properly, to be open, wide or free, i.e. (by implication) to be safe; causatively, to free or succor:—X at all, avenging, defend, deliver(-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation,

save(-iour), get victory.

Strong’s Hebrew 1954 points to our deliver.

Howshea` ho-shay’-ah from 3467; deliverer; Hoshea, the name of five Israelites:—Hosea, Hoshea, Oshea.

Strong’s Hebrew 3442 points to ‘he will save’.

Yeshuwa` yay-shoo’-ah for 3091; he will save; Jeshua, the name of ten Israelites, also of a place in Palestine:—Jeshua.

So we can see that Iesous/Jesus points to the Father saving, which is what it should mean.

Iesous/Jesus vs. Joshua

In Acts 7:45, Stephen is standing before the Jews, recalling the history of their people, when he mentions Joshua.

Then in Acts 7:55, when Stephen is talking about the Jewish leaders killing Messiah, it’s the same Greek word G2424 IESOUS, and it is rendered as Jesus.

The point is that the name Joshua and Jesus are both based on the Greek IESOUS.

The English transliteration of Messiah’s Hebrew name, would be better rendered as Joshua.

People also condemn the title of Christ, saying that it’s pagan; but if the enemy is the antichrist, then the Messiah is the Christ.  The enemy opposes Christ, and proclaims to be the substitute Christ; thus they are antichrist.

5547. Χριστος Christos from 5548; anointed, i.e. the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus:—Christ.

500. αντιχριστος antichristos from 473 and 5547; an opponent of the Messiah:—antichrist.

Y’shua / Y’hoshua in the Aramaic-English New Testament.

Since I’ve been reading an Aramaic New Testament, which is based on the Aramaic manuscripts, not the Greek manuscripts; it’s opened my eyes a bit to the names of the Father and Son.

The Aramaic New Testament uses Y’shua for Messiah’s name; which is short for Y’hoshua and means Yahweh is Salvation.

Aramaic is a sister-language to Hebrew, and it is a language that Messiah and His disciples spoke.

So though ‘shua’ in Hebrew means ‘to cry’; in Aramaic ‘hoshua’ means ‘salvation’.

We know Messiah’s name means ‘the Father saves’.  In Hebrew that is sounded out one way, in Aramaic another.

The bottom line is that the Father and Messiah know the intention of our hearts, and that is what matters most.

The Hebrew Scriptures give us the Father’s personal, covenant name, which should be hallowed above all other names.

The Father’s personal name is YaHUaH, which is spelled from right to left
in Hebrew as יהוה.

The Scriptures declare that the name of the Son means “Yahuah Saves,” so His name includes part of the Father’s name along with the Hebrew word for ‘saves.’

The Son’s personal name is Yahusha, which is spelled from right to left
in Hebrew as יהושע

This study is not designed to give you detailed explanations of the Hebrew language.
Link are provided for you to study that information if you desire.

My goal is provide simple logic and examples of Scripture, to help you see that the personal names of the Father and Son have very important meanings.

Before we start, let’s be clear about something. I am not part of the Hebrew Roots Movement or any other group, which tends to push their teachings to extremes.

I don’t condemn or judge. I don’t proclaim that you’re not saved if you use the name Jesus. I simply explain what I have found in my studies, as I’ve pursued truth in regard to the personal, covenant names of the Father and our Messiah.

I do believe that our Messiah is waking up His remnant to these deceptions during these last days, as we prepare to be with Him.

Please pray to the Spirit for guidance, as I fully understand that it’s normal to resist anyone saying that Jesus is not the Messiah’s name.

Let’s start with the name of the Father, for it is the foundation of the name of His Son.

The sacred name of the Father is YHUH, Yahuah.

The Father has given us His personal name, but the enemy has caused Christians to use trite terms such as “Lord” and “God,” which pagan gods are also called.

Over 100 times from Genesis to Revelation in the original Hebrew text, Scripture defines that the faithful followers are to “call upon the name of Yahuah.

The emphasis from His holy Word is that His faithful are to proclaim the true sacred name of Yahuah, the Most High, which is spelled from right to left in Hebrew as יהוה

When transliterated into English it is then read from left to right as YHUH, and is spelled and pronounced as Yah-oo-ah. The Father’s Name is made up of the four Consonants:

Yahuah Hebrew name for the FatherY (Yod)
H (Hay)
U (Uau)/[Waw]
H (Hay)
If we add them all together, we get Yahuah, Yah-hoo-ah.

The sacred name of the Son is Yahusha, which means Yahuah is Salvation.

Our Messiah was a Hebrew of the tribe of Yahudah/Judah, so He had a Hebrew name.

Yahusha means Yahuah saves

Why are their personal, covenant names so important?

Here’s a few verses which declare the importance of using the right name. The KJV is provided to compare its usage of the titles, to the personal names in the ISR translation.

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” Exodus 20:7

You do not bring the Name of יהוה (Yahuah) your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught.”

That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH (the NKJ uses Lord), art the most high over all the earth.” Psalm 83:18

And let them know that You, Whose Name is יהוה, (Yahuah) You alone are the Most High over all the earth.”

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.” Malachi 3:16

Then shall those who fear יהוה (Yahuah) speak to one another, and יהוה listen and hear, and a book of remembrance be written before Him, of those who fear יהוה, and those who think upon His Name.”

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

And she shall give birth to a Son, and you shall call His Name יהושע (Yahusha) for He shall save His people from their sins.”

The word Lord should be rendered as either Elohim, Yahuah or Master.

The Jews developed a superstition that it was too holy to pronounce the name YAHUAH or even lay eyes on it, so they replaced every occurrence of the name YAHUAH (over 8,000 times in scripture) with the title LORD in keeping with their Babylonian captors whose god was also the LORD god Ba’al.

“Lord” is used as a title of deference for various gods or deities. The evil ones of this world call Satan Lord. The title of Lord transliterates into the name Ba’al. So we definitely don’t want to use that title.

Lord in the Old Testament should be Yahuah.

Isaiah 45:5, “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside Me.” KJV

‘I am יהוה, and there is none else – there is no Elohim besides Me.” ISR98

Isaiah 43:11, “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” KJV

I, I am יהוה (Yahuah) and besides Me there is no saviour.” ISR98

Genesis 2:4, “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heaven.”

These are the births of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that יהוה (Yahuah) Elohim made earth and heavens” ISR98

Lord used in the New Testament to refer to the Father should be Yahuah.

Matthew 23:38-39, “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” KJV

See! Your house is left to you laid waste, for I say to you, from now on you shall by no means see Me, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה!’ (Yahuah)” ISR98

Hebrews 8:8, “…Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.” KJV

…See, the days are coming,” says יהוה, (Yahuah) “when I shall conclude with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yahuḏah a renewed covenant” ISR98

Lord used in the New Testament to refer to the Son should be Master.

Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” KJV

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens.” ISR98

The tribe of Yahudah (Judah) reflects the Father’s name.

yah-namesThe name of the Father, Yahuah, is in the name of the tribe of Yahudah, from which the Messiah Yahusha was born and salvation came to man.

The “Yahu” (first 3 Hebrew Letters (Consonants)) appear in both Father and Son’s Names.

The Hebrew fourth letter, the “dalet”, is inserted into the name of the Father, to form Yahudah, which means to celebrate or praise the “Person” of Yahauh.

And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.” Genesis 29:35 KJV

And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Now I praise יהוה (Yahuah).” So she called his name Yahuḏah. And she ceased bearing.” ISR98

The ‘D’ in Hebrew, the dalet, means ‘door.’ Messiah, who came from the tribe of Yahudah, is our door to the Father.

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9

The name for Israel should be Yisra’ĕl.

Yisra’ĕl includes ‘el’ on the end, which refers to Elohim.

And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Genesis 32:28 KJV

And He said, “Your name is no longer called Yaʽaqoḇ , but Yisra’ĕl, because you have striven with Elohim and with men, and have overcome.” ISR98

Yisra’ĕl means “to strive with Ěl, to overcome with Ěl, (then) to rule with Ěl”

The word God should be El or Elohim.

The title god is used for pagan gods and even Satan. “God (Gad)” is also a Babylonian “deity” of fortune.

But ye are they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number” Isaiah 65:11 KJV

But you are those who forsake יהוה (Yahuah), who forget My set-apart mountain, who prepare a table for Gad, and who fill a drink offering for Meni” ISR 98

Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.” Isaiah 45:21 KJV

Declare and bring near, let them even take counsel together. Who has announced this from of old? Who has declared it from that time? Is it not I, יהוה (Yahuah)? And there is no mighty one besides Me, a righteous Ěl and a Saviour, there is none besides Me.” ISR 98

Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things!” Psalm 72:18 KJV

Blessed be יהוה (Yahuah) Elohim, Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, He alone is doing wonders!” ISR 98

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour” 1Timothy 2:3 KJV

For this is good and acceptable before Elohim our Saviour” ISR 98

To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” Jude 1:25 KJV

To the only wise Elohim, our Saviour, be esteem and greatness and might and authority, both now and forever. Amĕn.” ISR98

So when you see God, it should read Elohim.

The Prophets names reflect the Father’s name, to give Him glory.

The English names of the prophets and Apostles does not convey their meaning, which Yahuah gave to them.

Daniel should be Dani’ĕl, which means “Judge of El

Elijah should be Ěliyah, which means “my God is Yahuah” or “mighty one of Yahuah”

Isaiah should be Yeshayah, which means “Yahuah is salvation

Jeremiah should be YermeYah, which means “Yahuah will rise

Matthew should be Mattithyah, which means “Gift of Yahuah

Obadiah should be Oḇaḏyah, which means “Worshipper of Yahuah

Paul should be Sha’ul, which means “humbled by Yahuah

Samuel should be Shemuw’El, which means “heard of El

Zechariah should be Zeḵaryah, which means “Remembrance of Yahuah

Zephaniah should be Zephanyah, which means “Protected by Yahuah

Yahuah’s name identifies His people

And all peoples of the earth shall see that the Name of יהוה is called upon you, and they shall be afraid of you.” Deuteronomy 28:10

and My people upon whom My Name is called, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I shall hear from the heavens, and forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

For You, O Elohim, have heard my vows; You have given me the inheritance Of those who fear Your Name.” Psalm 61:5

Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name.” Psalm 91:14

Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.” Isaiah 52:6

For all the peoples walk, each one in the name of his mighty one, but we walk in the Name of יהוה our Elohim forever and ever.” Micah 4:5

Removing the generic Lord reveals who we are to call upon to be saved.

Using the generic title of Lord leads people to believe that they should call upon Yahusha the Son; but the text declares that we should call upon the name of the Father.

And the verses don’t just say to call upon the Lord, they say call upon the name of the Lord.

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

And it shall be that everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה (Yahuah) shall be saved.” ISR98

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13 KJV

For everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה (Yahuah) shall be saved.” ISR98

Replacing the Father’s name violates the third commandment.

The third commandment declares a serious charge against those who desolate His personal, covenant name; make it useless; or use it in vain.

You do not bring the Name of יהוה (Yahuah) your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught.” Exodus 20:7

By denying to use His name and instead using titles, or by changing it to Greek or English name; both Judaism and Christianity have done exactly that, breaking the third commandment.

In Scripture, Yahuah commands us over and over again to utter, proclaim and lift up His authentic covenant name.

How can we expect to be in true worship of the Father and his beloved Son if we use counterfeit names?

By doing so we have given the enemy opportunity to create confusion and to deceive many.

Some declare that Yahuah has many names.

The Father has one personal covenant name, Yahuah.

He has many titles, attributes and characteristics, such as Healer, Shepherd, Redeemer, Father, Husband, Protector, etc.

To claim that the Father will know who you mean when you use God, Lord, and his titles; treads on dangerous ground.

He detests pride and arrogance, which imply that He should conform to our distorted names, instead of us bowing to His authority, and using the name that He declared for us to call Him.

We have the expectation that the Father has written our proper name in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Should the Father not expect us to use His personal, covenant name?

Revelation 22:4 tells us that His name will be on our foreheads.

And they shall see His face, and His Name shall be upon their foreheads.”

At this point you should be very alarmed and even angry!

The deception is grand! The Father’s name Yahuah is the most frequent used word in the Hebrew Scriptures, yet it has been removed from the English Bibles.

By removing the personal name of the Father, Bibles have removed these truths from our minds and hearts, and from our lips.

The enemy has caused their names to be removed from our thinking and speech.

As a result, many Believers are guilty of breaking the third commandment in the worst kind of way! We have completely ignored and forgotten His personal, Set-Apart Name.

Instead of being suspicious of those who call attention to these truths about the true name of the Father, the followers of Messiah should be suspicious and boiling mad at the translators who intentionally left out His name from our Bibles!

Will you follow the Word’s clear command to use the Father’s personal, covenant name?

If so, here are a few resources to make that easier. I have the ISR Bible because I like having it in my hands, and I use eSword to compare the KJV and ISR side by side.

The Institute for Scripture Research (ISR) Bible is a available @ http://isr-messianic.org/shop/the-scriptures/

You can read the ISR 98 online @ https://www.bible.com/bible/316/jhn.1.isr98

Or you can download the ISR 98 Scriptures for eSword @ http://isr-messianic.org/downloads/free-scriptures-downloads.html

And here’s a link to the Aramaic-English New Testament. I don’t agree with all of the explanations in the study notes, but the notes add Hebrew/Aramaic context to the Scriptures. https://www.aent.org

I want to end this study by praising His true name.

You can see the difference between the KJV, which uses the generic Lord and God; and the ISR98, which uses the proper name of יהוה Yahuah.

Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised. The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high” Psalm 113:1 -5

Praise Yah! Praise, O servants of יהוה, Praise the Name of יהוה!
Blessed be the Name of יהוה, Now and forever!
From the rising of the sun to its going down, The Name of יהוה is praised.
יהוה is high above all nations, His esteem above the heavens.
Who is like יהוה our Elohim, Who is enthroned on high?

Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD. Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God, Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.” Psalms 135:1-3

Praise Yah! Praise the Name of יהוה; Praise, you servants of יהוה, Who are standing in the House of יהוה, In the courts of the House of our Elohim, Praise Yah, for יהוה is good; Sing praises to His Name, for it is pleasant.

I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.” Psalms 145:1-3

I exalt You, my Elohim, O Sovereign; And bless Your Name forever and ever.
All day long I bless You, And praise Your Name forever and ever.
Great is יהוה, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable.

Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.’ Psalms 148:13

Let them praise the Name of יהוה, For His Name alone is exalted, His splendour is above the earth and heavens.

Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalms 150:1,6

Praise Yah! Praise Ěl in His set-apart place; Praise Him in His mighty expanse! Let all that have breath praise Yah. Praise Yah!
