יהוה YaHuWaH / Elohim / YaHuSHuah יהושע
For many it is no longer a question that the time has come when something must be done with the originally revealed names of the Eternal and the Messiah. This is one of the important and essential turning point of the restoration, or let us rather speak of the reform.
Many people also know that Hebrew letters have numerical value. Thus, each word and each letter present in the Holy Scriptures has its place and its very precise weight. It is forbidden to remove or add to them, because they form a perfect unit. This unity is a truly powerful source of life and blessing to all who read and follow it. Thus the slightest modification or retrenchment automatically has harmful spiritual repercussions on the people who act in this way.
It is also obvious that the father of lies, Satan, falsifies everything. Thus, when translating the Holy Scriptures into foreign languages, one of his main objectives was to mistranslate the texts and particularly the names of the Eternal, of His Anointed and sometimes even of His Spirit in order to distort and plunder them of their content and their spiritual power. The enemy is thus trying to infiltrate the very heart of Salvation in order to blow everything up by doing a kind of nuclear fission.
YHWH / יהוה / YaHuWaH
The rejection of the name also dates back to rabbinical Judaism. Judaism emerged during the Babylonian captivity when the so-called oral laws were formulated by men still considered to this day as the wise men of the nation. The second commandment, that we shall not take his name in vain, also did not escape this distorting work and in order to ensure that this commandment was never broken, they decided that YHWH should never be spoken again. The name of our Elohim, Yahuwah, was thus simply erased from the collective consciousness. Other expressions are used as substitutes when reading the Torah. This is how we can hear words like: HaShem (The Name) and Adonai (Lord).
One can find many teachings on the internet on how to pronounce his Name, why it is important to return to it urgently in light of the prophecies and the spiritual impact it has in our lives. Maybe I’ll explain all of this myself in more detail later. Now, however, before we fall into the trap of going back to the letter and developing a new theology or denomination,
we must first and foremost refer the matter to the exclusive guidance of the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh
May this article be in his hands, from its formulation to its reading. May He guide us to know what to do and how to use his original names, lest we fall into vain human efforts lacking the deep spiritual content of the thing. Let us never restore anything for self-interest, or to make ourselves appear to be better Christians. But let’s restore things in order to walk in obedience on the path to sanctification. We must stop the enemy continuing to ridicule us by twisting/stealing to the very names of the Most High.
Everyone knows very well that the spoken word has its weight in the spiritual world. How could it be otherwise with the names of the Almighty?!
The Hebrew letters also have a numerical value. Even the Jewish sofers – the copyists of the Torah, at the slightest error, they simply destroy the entire sheet or even the entire scroll and start copying from the beginning. Each word has a numerical value, which, like a kind of perfect mathematical equation, brings the Scriptures to life.
The names of Elohim are those which contain the most this vivifying power
therefore, if we alter or replace them, we prevent them from bringing their beneficial effects.
See the article: YHWH is genetically coded into us
In the Tanakh we come across the name Yahushuah several times, which has been transliterated as Joshua-Jehoshua. Both names appear as one name in the original translation: יהושע (YHSHWH – YaHuSHuah).
It seems incomprehensible to me that anyone could have had the idea of taking the liberty of removing this letter ה (hey) from the Name of our Savior which was later revealed to us? Especially since we know from the case of Abraham that this same letter ה, was precisely the one Abram received in the middle of his name as the sign of his Covenant with Yahuwah. What could have made anyone think that
this same letter ה (hey) can be removed from the name of the SAVIOUR?
This is how YaHuSHuah finally became simply Yeshua, a name that only appeared once in this form and who’s meaning is He Will Save. I think that those people who does not know Him yet, could eventually call Him this way. But for us, who are born again in the Messiah and received the Holy Spirit, this name shouldn’t be pronounced in its future form since the promise had already been fulfilled in us.
Each Hebrew letter not only has a numerical value, that is, a mathematically calculable weight when it is pronounced, but it also has a meaning of its own. Thus the letter ה means: Behold – Sign – Covenant. This way His original name was simply shortened from the following meaning:
HERE is the Lamb of Elohim, which is the SIGN, that is to say the seal, of the COVENANT.
Another important and interesting letter that appears in the name YHWH to form the name of the Savior is the letter ש (SHin). Among other things, the meaning of this letter is “destruction”. The necessity of the death of the Son is indicated by ש so that the ה could take effect. But ש does also serve as an abbreviation for one of Yahuwah‘s names: El Shaddáj (The Almighty), as it is often found on mezuzahs.
How much more expressive and complete is YaHuSHuah‘s name than when we simply utter his name as saviour. Because indeed, He is the Saviour, but he is also the Sign of the Covenant by the Blood of the immolated Lamb and moreover, HE is also ONE with the Father.
YaHuShuah, the name of the Lamb of Elohim must necessarily merge with the name YHWH, because this name means: YaHuWaH Saves.
How can one think that the names He gave us to name himself can be translated into all kinds of languages, that is to say distorted and replaced by expressions often derived from the name of pagan spiritual principalities such than Zeus for example? Where do the names come from (Theos/Dios/Deus/God – Je-Sus/Heil–Zeus).
Nobody translates people’s name when they go abroad. This would be considered as a lack of respect of the other and a source of vexation. If we are able to understand how important is to be respectful toward’s our neighbour’s name, why do not we see how much more is it important is this in the case of Yahuwah our Elohim!?
However, there are two instances in the Bible where foreigners erased Jewish names with their own seals:
- The first was Joseph, one of the main precursors of Yahushua who received the name of Zaphnath-Paaneah from a pharaoh who, although being very friendly towards the Jews, knew Elohim only in a very superficial way.
- The other was the later Babylonian power, which after having taken the Jews captive – following the destroction of the Temple and the taking away of its utensils by dedicating them to their own pagan gods – changed the names of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah to Belteshaszar, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego.
The same imperial spirit, let us call it Egyptian or Babylonian, but who is essentially the Roman daughter of the latter, replaced Elohim by Theos (God) and Yahushua by iesus, in order to continue to honor their former main idols through them.
It is interesting to note that the work of falsification did not stop there. For the worship of their other lesser idols also continues, but in their case through the use of Jewish names after which they have been renamed. This is how Aphrodite and Venus became the Virgin Mary, Mars, Saturn, Hermes and the other Greco-Roman divinities were canonized as “saints” and thus inherited the Jewish names of the main characters of the Bible: (Saint Paul, Peter, John and the others).
Here we see the process where the righteous are paganized and pagan idols are “hebraized.”
It was a real shock to me and I was almost discouraged from continuing the ministry when I discovered that even the name of the Savior contained the seal of the antichrist from the time of the first translations of the Gospel.
Because you may be familiar with this theory that the translation of YaHuSHuah‘s name in Greek is nothing more than the greeting “heil zeus“. This seems a bit forced to me at first, especially since those who promote this theory base their explanations on the Spanish pronunciation of Jesus (pronounced with a strong H, which most reflects this idea). However, when the Greeks invented the term Jesus, the Spanish language did not even exist. But the phenomenon is indeed suspicious enough to give a serious chance that this is not a coincidence, and knowing the machinations of the enemy, I can easily imagine that he is also hiding behind this as well.
This good human intention which tries to bring the name of the Savior closer to the lips, that is to say to the mother tongue of the new converts, is used by the devil to defile and blaspheme by his own names the Name above all names. As the saying goes:
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Satan, among others, has mastered the art of using human goodwill and pure intentions to hinder the plan of YaHuWaH, that is, against the person of YaHuSHuah.
Greeks did not keep the -wah ending of Yahushuah, since the -a ending is the sign of the feminine form. Thus they really had a good reason to make some change in it, but the problem was that the masculine ending form added -us, is directly coming from the name of Zeus, who was the quintessential male being the father of all gods, the first male of the world according to their beliefs. This resulted in the birth of a name whose sound fully includes the name of their zeus when pronounced: iesus. Something that should have seemed just as problematic to them as the original form and its feminine connotation.
Moreover, the matter does not end here. For when the Greek translation, iesus, was adopted by Latin speakers, they simply kept it without any modification. Here the question arises as to how a Latin-speaking believer could keep this name in this form and pronounce it when speaking of the Messiah, since the word sus in Latin was an existing and common expression which meaning is none other than pig !?
And if all this wasn’t convincing enough why it is problematic to refer to the Messiah with this Greek word and all the names derived from it, it is also worth mentioning that
according to Greek gematria, the numerical value of the letters that constitute the root of the word Iesus is nothing but 666.
More precisely, the name Jesus is articulated with the three Greek consonants which result in this number. John wrote exactly these three vowels in the book of revelations when announcing the number of the beast: χξϛ (stigma tsi kszi). Adding to this the vowels and then the graphism of greek letters having been later modified, the final result is Ἰησοῦς, so that it is harder to see the concordance with the original root.
A separate study could be written about how the antichrist appropriated the role and person of our Savior to endow Him with his false name? It can also be expected that when the Antichrist appears in a few months/small years, he will argue with this well-prepared phenomenon in order to deceive many into saying that the real Messiah, Yahushua of Nazareth who walked the earth 2000 years ago and who was renamed “Jesus”, was actually the prophesied “antichrist” and from now on he is of course the “real” one. We can also prepare for this kind of deceptive propaganda.
I know it is shocking to read such things and that it is almost unacceptable. We would almost start to get angry with the Almighty for letting the enemy steal even His names from us! Why did He let him go so far in falsification?
But let us not fall into the temptation of accusing or even condemning ourselves for having been using impure names so far, let us instead recognize once again that we must look forward, not back. There is a time of ignorance and there is a deception into which we have all fallen in spite of ourselves.
Certainly we have been deceived, but we were not aware of it and our devotion was pure and that is why it worked anyway.
Many of us have been baptized in the name of Jesus. Yet, we are indeed born again and have received the Holy Spirit and all the accompanying gifts together with the Eternal Life. Because we called him so out of ignorance, but in the bottom of our hearts He is the true Messiah to whom we said “yes” and whom we truly met.
It is important to emphasize this fact, because the time of Grace is still ongoing. And I am sorry to see once again, that those who preach the return to the original names of the Eternal do often fall into the other extreme. They do fall in the trap of accusing, or at least insinuate, that those who use the names derived from Zeus: Theos and Jesus are the sons of perdition. This condemnation is a serious sin and even a worse attack on His Name than the use of the falsifications against which these people raise their voices. We must preach the truth with love and not execute the dying ones before time.
If following the recognition of the need to restore the original names, someone persists in the use of fakes, then a new era will open for the rebel which will gradually shorten the time of grace granted to him. Thus, we must draw everyone’s attention to this danger.
Let us rejoice that the time of probation still lasts. Let’s be happy that the Holy Spirit goes on guiding us. Let us give thanks for always having the possibility of asking to have an increasingly humble and obedient heart so that we can accept even what may still seem unacceptable today. Let us be happy of still having the true names available to us so that we can live with and by them.
And now let’s ask the question in our hearts to the Holy Spirit, does the Eternal really want us to come back to His original names again? Because if He is inviting us from within to do so and if we still do not make the right decision, then very different and less glorious times will be opened up in our lives.
Elohim / אלוהים
Instead of ELOHIM, the names of false elohim(s) are used in every language.
Let’s take a look at a few languages of the world, in which billions of people to this day address the Almighty using totally different expressions to the one He first revealed to us: Elohim.
Theos / Zeus
Among the letters included in the New Testament that were actually originally written in Greek, today we find the term Theos instead of Elohim. This is very likely a later transcription of the original name. When the texts began to be copied, the term Theos, easier to interpret for the Greeks, came in as a substitute the original name used by Paul. It is not necessary to have in-depth theological, historical or linguistic knowledge to recognize the origin of this term: Theos–Zeus.
From here comes later the Latin form Deus which by transliteration has come down to us in its form Dios/Dieu, etc. in languages derived from Latin, including French and Spanish.
The origins of the two following names are not really clear and are much more difficult to figure out. However, whether either theory turns out to be the correct one, that would make their use quite problematic.
ǥuđán / God
The English and German word God/Got could come from two different places: First we have the Babylonian deity called Gad who was also worshiped by some Jews during the captivity which is mentioned in the book of Isaiah in chapter 65.
But according to some opinions, God may simply come from the Germanic people of the same name, the Goths. For in the Germanic world, where the concept of übermensch (superior race) was always prominent long before the Nazis, the Gothic tribes were considered superior among the all the other Germanic tribes. Indeed, the Goths were the Germanic superheroes, the strongest warriors considered invincible and therefore endowed with a practically divine reputation. In a strongly anthropocentric English-speaking world where people are mostly descending from Anglo-Saxon/Danish-Viking thus Germanic tribes, it can easily happen that God is quite simply the expression of the man who elevates himself to the rank of Elohim. At the time of the adoption of Christianity, this term designating the supreme spiritual authority, was adopted to name Elohim, the Almighty.
Isten / Ishtar
The Hungarian word Isten (pronounced ichten, equivalent of God) is perhaps the most interesting and also the most dramatic of all at the same time. Here again, the origin of the word is not very clear. According to some linguists, the word comes from the Persian language, others say that it is Finno-Ugric and still others claim that it is of Sumerian origin, and means “ancestral“, “one“, or “unique“. So far, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, since we are really talking about the Elohim who is Ancestral, One and Unique.
However, the sound of this term is surprisingly close to another phenomenon also of Persian and Sumerian origin, which is none other than Ishtar.
She was considered the goddess of love, fertility, sometimes also of war, identified with Venus, the morning star. Among the Canaanites and Mesopotamians, she is better known as Astarte. Its symbol is the eight-pointed star (similar to what can be seen on the Székely flag). He is a deity who was held in such reverence even in Babylonia that the very gate through which the Jewish people entered the city during the captivity bore her name. The remains of this gate are still kept in a museum in Berlin, right next to Satan‘s throne by the way.
Unfortunately, this vecinity is not only limited to the berliner museum. Another disturbing phenomenon can be observed if we write this word in Hebrew: אישטן, form almost identical not only in its sonority, but also in its spelling in the name of שָׂטָן (STN).
Even if the situation was not as serious as just described, and the resemblance to Satan’s name is just a coincidence, the almost identical sounding of the words isten and isthar raises the question of whether is it wise to use this term when talking about the Creator?
Moreover, it is not surprising to observe such a phenomenon in the case of a people whose first decisions when their State has been founded more than 1000 years ago, was precisely to offer the country to the Virgin Mary. From here on, giving Elohim the name of a female deity is not surprising. After all, Ishtar was not only a female deity, but was also called the queen of heaven. According to historians she was also named Astarte by other peoples, but she is also a direct predecessor of Aphrodite in Greece and then of Venus in Rome, herself later renamed Virgin Mary by the Christianized Romans ( from the original name Miriam, the Jewish mother of YahuShuah).
Allah / Elah
It is interesting to note that in the case of Allah, quite the opposite happens. Because it comes directly from Elah the contracted hebrew form of Elohim taken over by Arabic which, as we know, is also a Semitic language. This name had been adopted by the arabs in times where neighter Islam nor Christianity existed yet. The Arabs already existed and many worshiped the true and only Elohim, as we can see in the case of Jethro (Yitro) father-in-law of Moses. To this day, Arab or Coptic Christians use Allah, this abbreviated and Arabized version of Elohim as a word to designate God. It is therefore not the name of a foreign deity who would have been slammed on Elohim, but quite the contrary. Here, it is the original name which is taken over by a foreign spirit. Thus Baal reveals himself to a false prophet by usurping the abbreviated version Elah and simply calls himself Elohim by billions of people.
All these cases show that there are still basic things that still need to be restored in the Church. Whether we accept it or not, even if it is shocking, we must face the fact that:
the Bride uses the names of her exes to call upon her Bridegroom!
And I expressed myself with great restraint. Because the former idols are not just ex-boyfriends, but pure pimps. What name should be given to a wife who names her husband after his old macks in your opinion? Can we speak of a Wife? Or is she still a prostitute or at least in a mixed spiritual state, in adultary? Could this fundamental phenomenon explain the reason for the pitiful state of Christendom? Could this not be the root of all deviations from the straight path? The Latin word curba means deviation/curve. This word has been taken up in the Slavic languages as well as in Hungarian in the form kurva which means prostitute in its more vulgar version. This refers to many biblical prophecies where Israel and Judah were referred to by similar adjectives by their Husband Elohim. Today, there is a third woman, the Bride (Ephraim or the Nations) who, let’s face it, is not much better than the two others.
In the interest of real and effective reform, we should perhaps go back to basics so drastically:
In what terms do we speak of the Creator, the Almighty, the Eternal, our Savior and his Spirit?
We are not talking about Jewish roots here. Still not. Much more serious and important things still need to be restored, which go far beyond the Jewish roots and compared to which these are practically insignificant.
Because there was not yet a single Jew on earth when mankind had already been calling on the names of Yahuwah and Elohim for a long time. Then the Jew came with all his self-righteousness and man-made artificial laws and veiled the name of YHWH. And this false tradition has been endorsed and perpetuated by Christianity until today.
And now, as a Jew believing in the Messiah YaHuSHuah of Nazareth, should I also have to promulgate the Jewish roots in the name of our Savior by continuing to use distorted or alienated terms such HaShem/Adonai and even God, Dieu or Ishtar as many others do?
What would you say if your wife/partner/girlfriend called you by the name of one of her ex-boyfriends? How long would you endure such an offence before sending her back where she came from? This is where we see how incredibly patient Yahuwah is compared to us.
On our part, however, let us recognize the problem and do not grieve His Spirit any further by behaving like harlots and not like a worthy and obedient Bride.
For the Bridegroom is at the door. Is there oil in your lamp? If so what kind is it? With what names have you anointed the Son and the Father? Because the names we give are anointings and carry deep meanings. And the Spirit of Yahuwah/Elohim/Yahushuah did not authorize anyone to point to Him with these profane words. Realize that there are still some wise virgins who can still give you real oil today in case you happen to still be part of the camp of the foolish ones.
For when the Day comes, it is the one you have called on the name who will appear to take you. (Romans 10:13). May no one have any bad surprise at that moment!
