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)

IV.       Titles & Names

The Creator has many titles, but only one name. In section A below we will take a look at some common English titles and compare them with the original Biblical Hebrew titles. In section B we will focus on Hebrew names, and in section C we will look at titles versus names.

A.                      Hebrew Titles                  Versus                 English Titles With Similar Meaning

1.             Adonai (God, Ruler)                                            Lord (including human overseers and false gods)
2.             Elohim (Creator, The Almighty)                         God (Creator, The Almighty)
3.             Messiah (The anointed one)                              Christ (The anointed one)
4.             Melek (4428 in Strong’s)                                     King
5.             Nabiy (5030 in Strong’s)                                     Prophet

B.                            Hebrew Names                 Versus                 English Substitution

1.             Yoseph                                                                  Joseph
2.             Ya’aqob                                                                 Jacob
3.             Yonah                                                                    Jonah
4.             Yo’el                                                                       Joel
5.             Yob                                                                         Job

Y versus J: In the Hebrew text, our letter “J” is actually pronounced as our letter “Y”. The letter “J” actually did not come into use until about the 16th century. All ancient languages made use of the “Y” sound, and everywhere we find the letter “J” in scripture we should actually pronounce the letter “Y”. Therefore we can conclude that neither “Jesus” nor “Jehovah” is correct historically or linguistically. (see the Oxford Encyclopedia, 2000 edition)

C.                            Titles                                   Versus                 Names

1.             King                                                                       David
2.             Prophet                                                                  Samuel
3.             Apostle                                                                  Paul

Note:      To call someone by their titles is not the same as to call them by their name! People customarily use a title when they don’t have a personal relationship with that individual. Do you have a personal relationship with your Messiah? Then speak to Him by His Name! We’re not saved by titles but only through the one and only “name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

V.        What is the name of our Holy Father in Heaven?

A.            His name is YAH. (Ps. 68:4)
B.            His name is YAHUAH. (Ex. 6:2-3)
C.            His name is substituted as LORD throughout the Bible. (Is. 42:8, Amos 5:8, Mal. 3:6)

VI.       What is the Savior's true name?

A.            He came in His Father's name, YAH or Yahuah, not Jesus. (Jn. 5:43)
B.            The Father & The Son are one. (Jn. 10:30)
C.            The Father speaks and does works through The Son. (Jn. 14:9-11)
D.            We are to be in The Messiah and He in us. (Jn. 14:20)
E.             The Father and The son are still one even today. (Jn. 16:27-28)
F.             It is the name that marks us. (Jn. 17:21-26)

Note:      If YAHUAH is the Father's name, then “Jesus” cannot be The Son's true name for it does not contain His Fathers name. Then what is The Messiah's name? Lets look to some of the other Hebrew names for clues.

VII.     Many of the prophets had The Father's name in them.

A.          English                                Hebrew
1.             Elijah                                      Eliyahu
2.             Jeremiah                                 Yirmeyahu
3.             Isaiah                                     Yeshayahu
4.             Obadiah                                 Obadyahu
5.             Zechariah                              Zekaryahu

B.            As you can see, many of the prophet’s names had the beginning 2 to 3 Hebrew letters of The Father's name in them. With that in mind it is only logical to conclude that the Messiah's name would contain some, if not all, of the letters of the Holy Father's name within it. There is, in fact, a well-known Hebrew name that has all four letters of The Father's name in it: Judah or Yahudah. The sequence of letters in the Holy Name is only changed by the single addition of the Hebrew letter "D" – the daleth, or door -- and it is through this tribe or this door that The Messiah came. The name, Judah or Yahudah, is therefore prophetic. But there is only 1 name that has all four letters of the Holy Father's name exactly in sequence, therefore making that 1 name and the 1 whom it belongs equal with The Holy Father! That is the name of YAHSHUA our Messiah.

VIII.    The name YAHSHUA is figuratively the

Father's Name with the Hebrew shin added.

By definition the Hebrew letter shin means tooth or teeth, which represents the mouth. Therefore, prophetically, The Messiah is the mouthpiece, spokesman, or representative of the Holy Father. (Jn.1:14)

A.            The Messiah's name is often written in shortened forms, much like English names.

1.             Ronald                   1.             YAHUSHUA
2.             Ronnie                   2.             YAHSHUA
3.             Ron                        3.             YAH

B.         The Father's name is YAHUAH and The Son's name is YAHUSHUA.

This is the only name in which man can be saved!!! (Acts 4:12)

IX.       The intimacy of The Name

in our Heavenly relationship.

A.            We are to call Him husband, not names of Baal. (Hos. 2-16-17)
B.            We are to make no mention of other Gods! (Ex. 23:13)
C.            Have God's people forgotten His name? (Ps. 44:20)
D.            False prophets caused his people to err; His name for names of Baal. (Jer. 23:26-27)
E. God will return to His people a pure language so that they can call upon The Name of YAHUAH (Zeph. 3:9) as it was in the beginning (Gen. 4:26).
F.             We are not to speak in the name of other gods. (Deut. 18:20)
G.            We are called to destroy the names of false gods. (Deut.12:3)

X.        Conclusion:

YAH says his name is continually blasphemed everyday! (Is.52:5-6) Those who blaspheme the name of YAH are to be judged. (Lev. 24:10-16). You say you've come out of the world, but has the world come out of you? We now present you with a contrast. (Rev.14: 1-3; Rev. 17:3-5). You have been presented with the facts, but the decision is yours. PRAISE YAHUAH!!!
