National Name of Israel's God

Messiah's True Hebrew Name

Pagan Proofs of the Divine Name

Four Facts About the Sacred Name

A Set-Apart Name and
a Set-Apart Community:

The Scriptures tell us that the Divine Name of Elohim is important! Isaiah 29:22-24 says, "Therefore thus said יהוה, who ransomed Abraham, concerning the house of Ya'aqob, Ya'aqob is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set apart My Name, and set apart the Set-apart One of Ya'aqob, and fear the Elohim of Yisra'ĕl. And those who went astray in spirit shall come to understanding, and the grumblers accept instruction."

The theme of being "set apart" or "sanctified" is doubled. Not only is Elohim's Name to be separated from the names of the world's gods, but there would be a "set apart" community that would follow both His Name and His Teachings. The Keil & Delitzsch Commentary interprets thus: "Just as Abraham was separated from the human race that was sunk in heathenism, to become the ancestor of a nation of Jehovah, so would a remnant be separated from the great mass of Israel that was sunk in apostasy from Jehovah; and this remnant would be the foundation of a holy community well pleasing to God."

Accepting the "set apart" distinctive Divine Name is an emblematic marker of a person who is separated or "set apart" from the world and following the ways of Elohim. Are you part of that "remnant," that "holy community well pleasing to YHVH"?

The Set-Apart Flock Will Know That "I AM YHVH"

Ezekiel recorded, "And I shall set apart My great Name... And I shall sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean – from all your filthiness and from all your idols I cleanse you. And I shall give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you. And I shall take the heart of stone out of your flesh, and I shall give you a heart of flesh, and put My Spirit within you. And I shall cause you to walk in My laws and guard My right-rulings and shall do them... And you shall be My people, and I shall be your Elohim. (Ezekiel 36:23, 25, 26, 27, 28; The Scriptures)

Notice above that the setting apart of His Name is linked with our Spiritual cleansing from paganism, sin and idols. It is also linked to a new heart and walking in His ways. It is no accident that many of those who reject His Name also reject the continuing validity of His laws. It is no accident that many of those who reject His Name have debased grace into a license to sin. To own His Name is to model Him in your own life.

"As a set-apart flock...they shall know that I am יהוה." (Ezekiel 36:38)

The Whole World Shall Know His Name

"And I shall exalt Myself and set Myself apart, and I shall be known in the eyes of many nations. And they shall know that I am יהוה." ' (Ezekiel 38:23, The Scriptures)

Importance of the Sacred Name !

Have You Been Deceived?

What does Scripture say about calling our Heavenly Father by the wrong name, or worse yet, a pagan name? What does it mean to truly love Him? What is the importance of the Sacred Name? Here are Scriptural answers!

Matthew 7:15 says, " Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

Our Savior is coming back for a pure and spotless bride, but would a faithful future bride repeatedly call her betrothed husband by other men's names? Who knows one loving fiancé that does so? Isaiah 54:5 says “For your Maker is your Husband; יהוה of hosts is his name…

Did you know that יהוה is the true name of our Heavenly Father in Hebrew, and that it’s pronounced YAHUAH; it occurs approximately 7,000 times within the Bible, but is usually translated “the LORD”. Would children call their father by whatever name they so choose? What parent would teach a child to do so? Romans 8:16 declares “The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of Elohim/ יהוה."

Seeing that we are His children, shouldn’t we be calling Him by His true name, and if not us who will? Dear brother/sister, deception is really prevalent today and YOU are not immune to it.

Revelation 12:9 says, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world...”

There is only one way to draw near to the Elohim/ יהוה of the Bible and that is biblically.

Matthew 24:11 says “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”

The only antidote for spiritual deception is truth:

John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Please hear me brother/sister; no one was ever given the authority to rename The Heavenly Father & Son. Please consider that while the Heavenly Father & Son’s names were changed, Satan’s name has remained the same throughout time, regardless to language. Why wasn’t Satan’s name changed or “transliterated”?

Matt 7: 14 "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."

Could this be a deliberate attempt to cover-up the true names of our Heavenly Father & His Son?

Do you think Elohim/ יהוה cares whether or not people know and utilize His true name?

Exodus 9:16 says, "And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth."

Please consider this: Within Scripture we see Elohim/ יהוה changing the names of men ―and even men having authority ―but who has been given the authority to change the name of El/ יהוה?

Jeremiah 23:26-27 tells us, "How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal." Proverbs 9:10 teaches us that “the fear of Elohim/ יהוה is the beginning of wisdom”

Tampering with the names of Elohim/ יהוה is not being fearful of Him and nor is it being wise…

Also consider:

Acts 4:12: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under the heavens given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

From the very beginning of the spread of the Gospel, it was the true Name of the Savior that the religious leaders did not want proclaimed.

Let’s take a look at Acts 4:17: “But that it spread no further among the people, let us strictly threaten them that they speak henceforth to no man in this Name."

Please note that the religious leaders of those days didn’t mind the Apostles teaching, preaching, or building churches. They just didn’t want them doing it in the name of “Yahshuah” our Saviors true Name! Many are still against those that preach/teach His true name even today! Why?

Ask church leaders today if “Jesus” is really the name the Apostles called the Savior by? They would have to honestly answer: no! They would instead say, “Jesus” is only what we call Him.” Why is that?

Have they not renamed the Son of Elohim/ יהוה or at the least have become co-conspirators with those who have? And when proven wrong and shown that “Jesus” could not possibly be the Savior’s Name (the letter “J” didn’t even exist until the 15th century!), these same leaders who lord over the sheep will say, “But  יהוה knows our heart, He knows whom we’re speaking of.” Yet it is this very same Elohim/ יהוה that has said in Hosea 2:16-17, "And it shall be at that day, saith YAHUAH, that thou shalt call me Ishi (husband); and shalt call me no more Baali (my LORD). For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth…"

And when it comes to those that say that Elohim/ יהוה knows their heart… He surely does! ―but do they realize the danger of following one's "heart" over the Divine Word? Please consider:

Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"

One should not elevate human feelings and desires above Elohim/ יהוה’s teachings and instructions. The Father of All Creation is no longer winking at our errors!

Acts 17:30: "And the times of this ignorance Elohim/ יהוה winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent."

There is a great need for repentance today; for the Kingdom of Heaven is still at hand. Listen, I don’t represent a “Sacred Name Movement," church denomination, or anything else of the sort. I represent the Elohim/ יהוה by whom we live, move and have our being and HIS Truths entailed within His Word.

I am simply a voice crying out in a world of darkness filled with deception, begging all who have ears to hear and eyes to see to consider the straight and narrow "Way" that leads to eternal life. Our Messiah Yahshuah said that we are to follow Him, we are to walk as He walked, do as He did. He walked in the ancient Way of Torah, which is YAH’S teachings and instructions, should we not do likewise? What does this entail? How is it done? How is it different from what we’ve been taught? It’s only natural that within a world filled with lies and deception, Truth would sound strange. Truth always will sound very different when placed in the midst of such surroundings. Truth will be hated in a world full of lies. And it will be very unpopular. Please ponder this truth very deeply: John 15:20, "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you…"

First Timothy 3:12, "Yea, and all that will live Godly in Messiah (Yahushuah ≠ 'Jesus') shall suffer persecution."

When was the last time YOU were ridiculed or persecuted for what YOU believe or the way YOU walk in Messiah “Yahushuah” ≠ “Jesus”?

Now, I will leave you with this: Have you been deceived concerning something as simple as our Savior’s name? And if you have, could there possibly be other areas of deception? (Remember that a little leaven leavens the whole lump.) What are you prepared to do about it?

Will YOU commit to following the truth regardless to what it looks or sounds like to the world, to your church, to your friends, to your family, to your spouse, knowing that they will persecute and/or ridicule YOU? Before you answer, I have one last scripture to share:

Hosea 4:6, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…"

When I was baptized in the Ruach Ha-Kodesh (that is, The Holy Spirit), YAH told me to “learn to LOVE the LORD thy יהוה and die, for without יהוה we all die!” (Speaking of the Second death) At that time I was baffled at the message, for I was sure that I already loved HIM… But then one day He showed me John 14:15, which says, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." That is when it hit me! I then understood that I didn’t in fact LOVE HIM, for I didn’t even know His commandments, much less was I keeping them. Sure, I certainly did appreciate Him, but I did not "LOVE HIM" by the biblical definition! Since then I have learned to truly LOVE HIM and am now teaching others to truly LOVE HIM as well.

If you’re unsure how to LOVE HIM then I invite you to learn. Matthew 7:15 warned us, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
