The Father's name Yahuah is seen above here in the early Ancient Semitic Pictograph Text represented by the tetragrammaton (YHUH in English) or seen below in Modern Hebrew
Like so many mistakes and corruptions in modern translations of the scriptures over the years the Father's name and his Son's name have been polluted by pagan influences whether intentionally or ignorantly and passed down through the ages.
Let us revive and restore the truth of His PURE name and use it as commanded.
The Heavenly Father's actual Name is not LORD, G-o-d, Hashem. In fact these are pagan names or titles which replace the true scriptures. The Creator's name is not Allah either as many Evangelical movers and shakers are now also trying to imply in order to bring more deception.
Brian Houston of Hillsong "Church" Australia is one such example. "Allah" does not teach To'rah neither does Brian's "G-o-d". False names with false doctrines.
So what's the big deal - surely we can call the Creator of Heaven and Earth by any name as long as we know and obey him? From the above poll it seems this is the general consensus. It's about our heart right and Yahauah knows our heart? Well exactly he knows when your heart is rebellious. If he tells you do this and you do that then your heart is rebellious. But ignorance can be forgiven as long as one is not willingly ignorant and wilfully rebelling.
II Peter 3: 3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of Yahuah the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
What about name calling on a personal level? I am sure you would not want to be called Adolf Hitler because of what that would represent. Or if your spouse asked you to stop calling them a monkey - would you still call them that and insist it does not make any difference? It was ironic that a lady jumped all over me on Youtube commenting that I was teaching nonsense yet at the very same time she had told me she was annoyed that I had left out a T in her name and it really irks her when people do that.
Well why should it be any different for the actual Heavenly Father who commands such a thing and who's name is to be lifted up? This is the Creator the all consuming fire we are talking about. Perhaps people have lost their fear or reverence for the All Mighty. Now we do know that false teachers tell us that we do not need to keep the commandments to remain justified so perhaps that is why they believe they can call the Creator whatever they like. He however says otherwise:
Exo 23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other mighty ones (gods), neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
Jos 23:7 That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods (mighty ones), nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them
Deut 18:20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods (mighty ones), even that prophet shall die.
Lev 19:12 And all of you shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shall you profane the name of your Elohim* : I am ** יהוה(YHUH, Yahuah)
* not God as your corrupted bible may have written
** not L-O-R-D as your corrupted bible may have written
How can the Creator's name be replaced with the names of idols that are an abomination to him? How can his name be lifted up if it is not his true name and is associated with something that is evil or useless (idols which are not mighty ones - cannot see cannot hear cannot do anything - are dead). How can we continue to blaspheme His name or make a mockery of it once we have learned the truth?
Or how can we just refer to him as The Name (Hashem) as evil Judaism enforces by its own command from rabbis and not according to the scriptures (To'rah) or The Heavenly Father Himself? They cannot utter his name why? Perhaps those who cannot and will not utter his name are found in this very revealing prophecy by Amos -read carefully :
1 Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came! 2 Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border? 3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near; 4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall; 5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David; 6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. 7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed. 8 The Sovereign יהוה hath sworn by himself, saith יהוה the Elohim of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein. 9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die. 10 And a man's uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue for we may not make mention of the name of יהוה. 11 For, behold, יהוה commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts. 12 Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock: 13 Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength? 14 But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith יהוה the Elohim of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of the wilderness.
You will notice that there is a connection to Samaria - which is where the false religion of Simon Magus originates, the root of bitterness of gall which is a saying for idolatry. Also you will notice that now Zion appears to be at a false ease due to the false Zionism which does not utter his name. We see that it foreshadows Yahuah's punishment upon these who do not utter his name. So it becomes clear that those who are in idolatry will not utter his name and thus bring his name to naught.
But Yahuah has said:
Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of יהוה thy Elohim in vain*; for יהוה will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
The word vain here means bringing his name to naught, in other words a meaningless, big fat zero!
What about the modern "church" circe today are they also part of this prophecy? We shall answer that in our next update. You will see in the next part below [The Corruption of the Greek Name Iesous (Jesus) ] how this refusal to utter the Father's name resulted in the Son's name also being corrupted!
The catholic anti-Hebrew translators have done the same in our bible translations to the name of Yah'ushua since his name bears the name of the Father Yahuah and they wanted to obliterate it.
Because the Greek, Latin and many other language influences upon the bible are languages corrupted by their pagan cultures they are not pure languages. Hebrew is the pure and original language of the bible. Even the Renewed Covenant, falsely called the New Testament had Hebrew as already discovered with the Hebrew Matthew. Hebrew however was also influenced when Israel was in captivity in Babylon for example and she began to take on her pagan ways. The scribes began to be corrupted. However we are told that the pure language shall be restored. It is clear that the pure language is important to Yahuah in relation to his people calling him by his correct name.
Zeph 3:9"For then will I restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of Yahuah, to serve Him with one accord,"
So anyone who tries to say it does not matter what language or name we use they are in direct opposition to Yahuah's prophecy, command and will. They do not realise that their King James declares the names of gods and godesses simply in its use of English namely Faith,Grace, Liberty, Charity, Easter (Eostre) etc. Thus by using English we do not honour the Creator when it comes to certain corrupt words.
Let's get a background of the corrupted name of the Son from this article. It is from the book Come out of Her My people by C.J. Koster, with minor editing by PierreRock Eksteen with further additions and editing by ourselves.
The Corruption of the Greek Name Iesous (Jesus)
Many Hebrew names of the Old Testament prophets have been "Hellenised" when these names were rewritten in the Greek New Testament. Thus, Isaiah became Isaias, Elisha became Elissaios or Elisseus (Eliseus),and Elijah became Helias in the Greek New Testament. The King James Version has retained some of these Hellenised names. Since the King James Version was published, the newer English versions have ignored these Hellenised names of the Greek New Testament, and have preferred, quite correctly, to render them as they are found in the Hebrew Old Testament. Incidentally, the similarity between the Hellenised Helias (instead of Elijah) and the Greek Sun-deity Helios, gave rise to the well-known assimilation of these two by the Church. Dr. A.B. Cook, in his book, Zeus - A Study in Ancient Religion, vol. I p. 178 - 179, elaborates on this, quoting the comments of a 5th century Christian poet and others, on this. Imagine it, Elijah identified with Helios, the Greek Sun-deity! Returning to our discussion on the reluctance of the translators to persist with all of the Hellenised names in the Greek of the New Testament, one could very well ask: But why did they persist with the Hellenised Iesous of Messiah’s Name, and its further Latinised form Iesus? It is accepted by many that His Hebrew name was Yah'ushua (meaning Yahuh-ah, The Father, sha (saves) through The Son [Mat 1:21]). So why did the translators of the scriptures not restore it, as they did with the names of the Hebrew prophets? It is generally agreed that our successor to Moses, was Joshua. The Greeks substituted the Old Testament "Yehoshua" with Iesous, the same word they used for Yah'ushua (true name of Messiah) in the New Testament. Subsequently the Latin’s came and substituted it with Josue (Iosue) in the Old Testament (which became Josua in German and Joshua in English), but used Iesus in the New Testament.
Two factors contributed greatly to the substitution and distortion of Yah'ushua's name. The first was the un-Scriptural superstitious teaching of the Jews that the Father's Name is not to be uttered, that it is ineffable, that others will profane it when they use it, and that the Name must be "disguised" outside of the temple of Jerusalem. Because of the Father's name being in His Son's Name, this same disastrous suppression of the Name resulted in them (The Greeks) giving a Hellenised, in fact a surrogate name for Yah'ushua. He did warn us in Joh 5:43, "I have come in My Father's Name . . . if another comes in his own name, him you will receive." The second factor was a strong anti-Jewish “culture” that prevailed amongst the Gentiles, as we have already pointed out. The Gentiles wanted a saviour, but not a Jewish one. They loathed the Jews, they even loathed the The Mighty One of the Old Testament. Thus, a Hellenised Saviour was preferred. The Hellenised theological school at Alexandria, led by the syncretising, allegorising, philosophising, Gnostic-indoctrinated Clement and Origen, was the place where everything started to become distorted and adapted to suit the Gentiles. The Messianic Faith, and its Saviour, had to become Hellenised to be acceptable to the Gentiles.
Where did the Greek name “Iesous” and Latin name “Iesus” come from?
In Bux and Schone, Worterbuch der Antike, under "Jesus", we read, "JESUS: really named Jehoshua. Iesous (Greek), Iesus (Latin) is adapted from the Greek, possibly from the name of a Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso)." Like all authoritative sources, this dictionary admits to the real true name of Yah'ushua. It then states, as most others, that the commonly known substitute, non-original, non-real name "Jesus" was adapted from the Greek. We must remember that Yah'ushua was born from a Hebrew virgin, not from a Greek one. His stepfather, His half-brothers and half-sisters, in fact all His people, were all Hebrews. Furthermore, this dictionary then traces the substitute name back to the Latin Iesus, and the Greek Iesous. It then traces the origin of the name Iesous back as being possibly adapted from the Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso). To the uniformed I would like to point out that Iaso is the usual Greek form, while Ieso is from the Ionic dialect of the Greeks. This startling discovery, the connection between Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous, is also revealed to us by the large unabridged edition of Liddell and Scott, Greek-English Lexicon, p. 816, under "Iaso".
The third witness comes to us in a very scholarly article by Hans Lamer in Philologische Wochenschrift, No. 25, 21 June 1930, pp. 763- 765. In this article the author recalls the fact of Ieso being the Ionic Greek goddess of healing. Hans Lamer then postulates, because of all the evidence, that "they changed Ieso into a regular masculine Iesous. This was even more welcome to the Greeks who converted to Christianity." He then continues, "If the above is true, then the name of our “Lord” which we commonly use goes back to a long lost form of the name of a Greek goddess of healing. But to Greeks who venerated a healing goddess Ieso, a saviour Iesous must have been most acceptable. The Hellenisation was thus rather clever." This then is the evidence of three sourced who, like us, do not hide the fact of the Greek name Iesous being related to the Greek goddess of healing. The Hellenisation of Yah'ushua's Name was indeed most cleverly done.
To repeat Yah'ushua's words of warning in Joh 5:43, "I have come in My Father's Name and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive." There is no resemblance or identifiability between the Name, Yah'ushua, and the Greek substitute for it, Iesous. The Father's Name, “Yahu-ah”, cannot be seen in the Greek Iesous or in the Latin Iesus, neither in the German Jesus, nor in the English Jesus. President Reagan's name remains the same in all languages. Hitler's name remains the same in all languages. Even satan has seen to it that all nations know him by his name: satan. satan has seen to it that his own name has been left unmolested!
However, let us further investigate the names Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous. According to ancient Greek religion, Apollo, their great Sun-deity, had a son by the name of Asclepius, the deity of healing, but also identified with the Sun. This Asclepius had daughters, and one of them was Iaso (Ieso), the Greek goddess of healing. Because of her father's and grandfather's identities as Sun-deities, she too is in the same family of Sun-deities. Therefore, the name Iesous, which is possibly derived from Ieso, can be traced back to Sun-worship. We find other related names, all of them variants of the same name, Iasus, Iasion, Iasius, in ancient Greek religion, as being sons of Zeus. Even in India we find a similar name Issa or Issi, as surnames for their deity Shiva. Quite a few scholars have remarked on the similarity between the names of the Indian Issa or Issi, the Egyptian Isis and the Greek Iaso. In our research on the deity Isis we made two startling discoveries. The one was that the son of Isis was called Isu by some. However, the second discovery yielded even further light: The learned scholar of Egyptian religion, Hans Bonnet, reveals to us in his Reallexikon der Agyptischen Religionsgeschichte, p. 326, that the name of Isis appears in the hieroglyphic inscriptions as ESU or ES. No wonder it has been remarked, "Between Isis and Jesus as names confusion could arise." This Isis also had a child, which was called Isu by some. This Isu and Esu sound exactly like the "Jesu" that we find the Redeemer called in the translated Scriptures of many languages, e.g. many African languages. Rev. Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p. 164, also remarked on the similarity of Jesus and Isis, "IHS - Iesus Hominum Salvator - But let a Roman worshipper of Isis (for in the age of the emperors there were innumerable worshippers of Isis in Rome) cast his eyes upon them, and how will he read them, or course, according to his own well-known system of idolatry: Isis, Horus, Seb." He then continues with a similar example of "skilful planning" by "the very same spirit that converted the festival of the Pagan Oannes is not the feast of the Christians Joannes." (The Hebrew name of the baptizer, and that of the apostle as well, was Yochanan or Yohanan).
Thus, by supplanting the Name of Yah'ushua with that of the Hellenised Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), which became the Latinised Iesus, it was easy to make the pagans feel welcome - those pagans who worshipped the Greek Ieso (Iaso), of which he masculine counterpart is Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), as well as those who worshipped the Egyptian Esu (Isis). Further evidence of syncretism withe the Isis-system is found in A. Kircher, Oedipus Aegypticus, wherein the name of the son of Isis is revealed to us as "Iessus, which signifies Issa, whom they also called Christ in Greek."
Another pagan group of worshippers could also be made to feel at home with the introduction of this surrogate name Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus, namely the worshippers of Esus. Jan de Vries hold that Esus was a Gallic deity comparable to the Scandinavian Odin. Odin, of course, was the Scandinavian Sky-deity.
This Gallic or Celtic deity, Esus, has also been identified with Mars, and by others with Mercury, and was regarded to by the special deity of Paris. Just as Iaso, Ieso, Iesous are derived from the Greek word for healing, Iasis, we similarly find Isis (more correctly: Esu) and her son Horus (more correctly: Her), regarded as deities of healing as well as cosmic deities, or Sun deities, by others.
The most disturbing evidence is yet to follow. The abbreviated form of the name Iesous is: Ies or in capitals: IHS, or in Greek the capital for "e" id "H". This is to be found on many inscriptions made by the Church during the dark Middle Ages. This fact is also well documented and is generally admitted by scholarly sources and ordinary English dictionaries. These dictionaries bear witness to the fact if IHS (Ies) being an abbreviated form of IHSOUS (Iesous). Furthermore, the shocking fact has also been recorded for us that IHS was a mystery surname of Bacchus, and was afterwards taken as initials for Iesous, capitals: IHSOUS. We discovered this in a dictionary of mythology and in an encyclopaedia of religion. This revelation was confirmed by a third witness, Dr. E.W. Bullinger, The Apocalypse, footnote p. 396, "Whatever meanings of ... IHS may be given, the fact remains that it was part of the name of Bacchus ..." We then realised, most painfully, that our beloved Messiah was identified with the Greek deity Bacchus, by giving Yah'ushua the surname or other name of Bacchus, namely: IHS or Ies! Bacchus was well known to be a Sun-deity. Bacchus was also a commonly known name for Tammuz among classical writers. Tammuz, as you will remember, was known to be the young returning Sun-deity, returning in spring. Bacchus, also known as Dionysus, was expressly identified with the Egyptian Osiris, the well-known Egyptian Sun-deity. Bacchus was also called Ichthus, the Fish. So, yet another group, the worshippers of Bacchus, the Sun-deity, alias Ies (IHS), were conciliated, were made welcome, with the foreign-to-the-Hebrew name of Iesous (IHSOUS) or Iesus. This most appalling revelation startled us, indeed. After being enlightened about the solar origin of the word IHS and its fuller form IHSOUS (Iesous), we are no longer surprised to find the ecclesiastical emblem, IHS, encircled by sunrays, commonly displayed on church windows.
No wonder that we read the testimony of the learned Christian advocate, M. Turretin, in describing the state of Christianity in the 4th century, saying "that it was not so much the (Roman) Empire that was brought over to the Faith, as the Faith that was brought over to the Empire; not the Pagans who were converted to Christianity, but Christianity that was converted to Paganism." A further witness to this paganisation of the Messianic Faith is that of emperor Hadrian, who, in a letter to the Consul Servianus, wrote, "There are there (in Egypt) Christians who worship Serapis; and devoted to Serapis are those who call themselves 'Bishops of Christ.'" Another testimony comes to us from the letter of Faustus, writing to Augustine, "You have substituted your love-feasts for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols your martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honours. You appease the shades of the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals of the Gentiles, their calends, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them."
Note this pagan Augustine is held in high regard by the modern pagan Christian Church today as a Church Father.
Yah'ushua, in His final message to us, the book of Revelation, has warned us of this in Rev 17, Rev 18, Rev 19, and also in Rev 13, Rev 14, and Rev 16 – Babylon, Mystery Babylon. The Great Harlot has made "the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication," out of the "golden cup" in her hand, "full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication," Rev 17:1-5. She is also described as "sitting on a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy," verse 3. Tammuz, alias Bacchus, had a surname: Ies or IHS. He was also known as the fish (Ichthus), and had the Tau, the cross, as his sign. These three things have survived, and are still with us!
In Acts 4:12 we read, "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." This verse clearly tells us that there is only one Name whereby we can be saved - there is none other. It cannot be Yah'ushua as well as Jesus, Iesous, Iesus, or Ies (Bacchus). There is no resemblance between the names of Yah'ushua and Jesus AT ALL. The one is correct and the other one a substitute. The one contains our Father's Name and the other one not. Yah'ushua has said that He came in His Father's name, Joh 5:43.
In the newer translations of the Scriptures, we read in two places, Joh 17:11 and 12 that Yah'ushua said that His Father's Name was given to Him. If we believe the Scriptures, if we believe our Messiah, if we believe what Peter said in Acts 4:12, we cannot be satisfied with any substitute name.
We must believe, accept, and be baptized into the only saving Name: Yah'ushua. In the end-time, according to Joel 2:32, calling on the Name of Yahuah will be necessary for salvation and deliverance.
By believing on, calling on, and being baptized in the Name of Yah'ushua, we do "call on the Name of Yahuah ", through His Son, "Who had His Father's Name given to Him, by His Father. "I have come in My Father's Name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive," Joh 5:43. The writer of Proverbs challenges us in Prov 30:4, "What is His Name, and what is His Son's Name, if thou canst tell?" KJV.
A very interesting alternate rendering for Psalm 72:17 is given to us in the centre column of the Reference King James Version, speaking about he promised Messiah, "His Name shall be as a Son to continue His Father's Name for ever."
As I have stated, there is no resemblance between the Name Yah'ushua and the name Jesus. Neither is there any resemblance between their meanings. Yah'ushua means:
“Yahuah The Father saves (through The Son)” or "the Salvation of Yahu-ah".
"Jesus" is derived from Iesus, derived from Iesous (IHSOUS) derived, most probably, from the Greek goddess of healing, Ieso or Iaso. Her name was derived from Iasis ,which means "healing". Further, the short form, or original source of the name Iesous (IHSOUS) is Ies (IHS), the very surname of Bacchus, the Sun-deity. Therefore, the two names differ completely in their origin, and in their meaning. And more important: Yah'ushua's name contains the Name of His Father, which the substitute name does not. Further proof of the Father's Name being in the Son's Name is found in Eph 3:14-15, "For this reason I bow my knees to the Father ... from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named." Surely, if His family received His Name; His only begotten Son will also have His Name.
Another proof is Rev 14:1, but this should be read in the newer translations, because the King James Version and the Revised Authorised Version have it both wrong. Rev 14:1-5, in the NASB reads, "And I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads ... These are the ones who have not been defiled ... These are the ones who follow the Lamb where ever He goes. These have been purchased ... as first fruits ... And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless." The translators of the King James version must have realised the meaning of this passage in Rev 14:1, namely, the similarity between the Lamb's Name and His Father's Name. Therefore they took the freedom, even if wrongfully, to omit the words "His Name and". The King James Version therefore only speaks about the Father's Name, while the Greek Text reads, "having His Name and the Name of His Father written on their foreheads." Do we wish to be part of this first fruit company? Then we are to make quite certain that we have the Father's Name and the Lamb's Name on (or in) our Foreheads. The similarity between their Names is obvious. Whether it will be just one Name, Yah, or whether it will be both Yahuah and Yah'ushua, is not clearly indicated, and is less important - as long as we have the essential part of the Name, Yah, which transmits its etymological concept of life, everlasting life. Verses 4-5 warn us against defilement, spiritual defilement - the lies that we have inherited, including the lies about the Names. "O Yahuah, ... the Gentile shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, 'Surely our fathers have inherited lies ...' Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know ... ; and they shall know My Name is Yahuah," Jer 16:19-21, a prophecy for the end-time.
"Therefore My people shall know My Name," Isa 52:6. "I will bring the one-third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My Name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people'; and each one will say, 'Yahuah is my Mighty One,'" Zech 13:9. "For then will I restore to the peoples a pure language, that they all may call on the Name of Yahuah, to serve Him with one accord," Zeph 3:9. "And Yahuah shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be - 'Yahuah is one,' and His Name one," Zech 14:9. He will no longer be called by all those hundreds of names, by which He is known today. His Name will be "one". And His Son, in Whose Name the Father's Name is contained, will subject Himself to His Father in that day,1Cor 15:28.
The Catholic Church had 1400 years to hide the original scriptures from the lay people and 1400 yearsa to fiddle with it. Thereafter they have fiddled and corrupted further as we see with Yah'ushua's name as recent as 400 years ago in this video.
