-Sharing our Saviour, Yahushua the Messiah to the World!-
-Please Read this FIRST- On this site we prefer to use the actual
Name of our loving Heavenly Father as it was written in the Word, and thus
you will note that we will use the Four Letter “Memorial Name”
of - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH
or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s
attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which
sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual
and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is - Yahushua or Yahshua in short, for
this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas
- Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His
family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today!
However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new
“pagan church of
“Do notAdd or Take Away from the Word, which I command you”
Davarim – Deuteronomy 4:2 - Paraphrased.
Beloved, this study has taken quite a long time to complete, for it has been written whilst prayerfully seeking for Elohim’s (God’s) guidance as I am so aware that any study will touch many lives. In addition, I am so aware that every word that is written by my hand, I am responsible for, especially on that Day I will stand before Him! Some parts of this study may be more difficult than other sections, but I pray in the Name of our blessed Saviour, that it will be a life changing experience, for beloved as Yahushua our Messiah said …
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Yochanan - John 8:32.
It matters a great deal if we are to accept the teaching of the Scriptures and what other teaching can we possibly accept? A poet wrote … “For forms and creeds let senseless bigots fight, He can’t be wrong whose life is in the right.”
It will be impossible to produce such a sentiment from the writings of the Apostles. While “forms and creeds” are odious enough in the hands of bigotry, in their right place they are essential.
“Creed” means belief, from credo, “I believe.” The general sentiment is that it does not matter at all what we believe if only we are sincere. This sentiment is foolish, because wrong belief can lead to wrong actions. It is also dangerous, because it diverts attention from the life-giving word of - YaHVaH Elohim. It really means that there is nothing, in which we can finally believe at all. Therefore friends, what we believe matters and thus it is vital that we should understand how the blessed Word of Elohim was compiled by His chosen prophets, but also what sadly later occurred; first by certain rabbis who sadly removed the Name of - YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, from the Tanach being Hebrew for the Old Covenant and then further changes were made to both the Tanach and the Brit Chadashah Hebrew for the New Covenant by the church a considerable time after the days of the Apostles!
It is for this reason I come before you in the most precious Name of YaHVaH Elohim our Creator, the Almighty Father who in great love has given so much of Himself by sending us His Messiah who, as we should know is very clearly described in the Scriptures as “the Word,” but our Heavenly Father also gave us what is generally known as the “Bible” although I prefer to call it “the Scriptures” or “The Word” being the writings as given by YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, which He gave to His chosen men throughout the ages!
We should understand that the Scriptures that we have received in the original; and I do mean both the “Tanach” the “Old Covenant” and the “Brit Chadashah” the “New Covenant” is full of beauty and packed with countless blessed Treasures and Gems.
However, I do have to tell you as history has proven that sadly so much of Elohim’s blessed and perfect Word is simply not understood by the vast majority of those who lead and teach those who are in the greater church, for due to the massive errors that took place in Roman “christianity” has sadly long gone astray! In addition, it needs to be understood that certain sections of the blessed Scriptures have been altered by the hand of man, for no man has ever received that authority according to YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name! But I will cover more regarding this subject later.
The blessed Scriptures teaches us a great deal for it reveals to us of the beginnings of the heaven and the earth and all that is good around us, the creation of the man (Adam) and the woman (Chavah - Eve) who lived in the Garden of Eden. They were given the first commandment “… but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat.” (Bereshis - Genesis 2:17). Then came the first sin, and the consequences of sin. However, right there in Bereshis - Genesis a prophetic hint was given of how YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, had already placed in motion a unique plan of redemption for mankind, which would be continually revealed to us through a multitude of prophetic events and prophecies given by His chosen men throughout the Tanach - Old Covenant in regard the coming of our Messiah, the Saviour.
However, the Scriptures also warned us in regard those evil “Latter Days” and the arrival of that wicked of all being’s, the “Beast” and all those that will eagerly support the system and the Beast who will rule during a seven year period, which is broken in a distinct two 3œ year periods, for the first will be different, whilst the second will be the time of great evils and a time when millions will be put to death! But this evil power will be defeated at the Second Coming of Yahushua our Messiah as we are told in both the Tanach and the Brit Chadashah and the Faithful in Him, who uphold His Teachings and His Commandments will live during Messiah’s Millennial Reign and in due course in the Kingdom of Elohim, which will be right here on the “New Earth” - where there will be a “New Heaven” and there will be a “New Jerusalem” with a brand “New Temple” - HalleyluYAH!
“Then I saw a
new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had
passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the
Hebrew - Greek and Aramaic:
In this section, I will cover languages, for this is a very important subject, as sadly it is a neglected one. OK, So the Tanach - Old Covenant was obviously written in Hebrew however, being in captivity certain parts of the book of Daniel was written in Aramaic, but the rest of the Tanach is in Hebrew.
We know that most ancient texts were originally written on parchment Scrolls, such as the Torah being the Five Books of Moshe, and when combined with all the Prophetic Books, Psalms, etc, it makes up the Tanach - Old Covenant, and they at first were written what is called; “Paleo-Hebrew Script.” However, at a later date transcribed into the square Hebrew letter typescript during the “Masoretic” times.
Over time, there were two changes from the original “Paleo-Hebrew Script” – the first one was into Greek and the other was still into Hebrew, but a different font type.
first change from the Paleo-Hebrew to Greek came about because of the army of
Alexander the Great invaded the land and
2… The second change from the Paleo-Hebrew Script was into a more square style “Masoretic Text” and that was accomplished by a group of Masoretic rabbis between the 7th and 10th centuries CE. Scripturally, the change was very good and although the font had changed somewhat, the pronunciations remained mostly unaltered! Although, there were a number of changes that had to be corrected later!
Above we see the most Sanctified Name of the Almighty in both the original Paleo-Hebrew and the Masoretic Text
When it comes to the Gospels we know for a fact that these were originally written on parchment and in Hebrew, whilst the Book of Acts and Revelation would have been written on parchment and/or other similar materials in Hebrew, whilst the vast majority, but not all of the letters/epistles, many were originally written in Hebrew, but others in Greek! For interest, there were some minor Aramaic terminologies used occasionally in “Brit Chadashah,” but that is to be expected when Yahushua was speaking to certain people. But in the main it was all in Hebrew! In addition, the Brit Chadashah; and you can double check your interlinear Scriptures (Bible) in regard to this, you will note that it frequently uses the most Sanctified Name of “YaHVaH - - Elohim,” blessed be His Sanctified Name!
Friends, we know this to be a fact and we obtained this from actual history, for there were some Hebrew Scrolls of the Brit Chadashah that came into the possession of a number of rabbis around 100 and 135 CE (AD) and they were deeply troubled by them, for they discovered that within these scrolls there was the Sanctified Name of YaHVaH - - Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name. Although they were against the teaching within these scrolls and desired to destroy them but as the Sanctified Name was in them there was a battle on how to do this. What I have just stated is fully recorded in full detail in a very special study featured via a Link located at the bottom of this page.
Thus the above fully proves that the Gospels were written in Hebrew, before they were translated later into Greek! Thus, in the original versions the blessed Name of our Saviour was Yahushua, blessed be He!
But sadly in regard to the Scriptures, it would be at a later date that it, and even the Greek version of the Old Covenant version, being the “Septuagint” as well as the Tetragrammaton - YaHVaH’s Name was deliberately altered by those who were possessed by the evil one, yet they were part of the church! Then, there came a full retranslation of the New Covenant into all Greek and sadly there countless errors made and this was sadly mostly due to complete lack of understanding of 1, the Hebrew language, and 2, the Judean way of life and ancient customs. Normally I have the following message at the top of the page, but I have reserved it here in order for better understanding!
The three levels of learning & understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim:
When we read and study the blessed Scriptures, the Word of Elohim as a believer in Yahushua the Messiah, we should keep the following three steps always in mind for they are a valuable guide and it will certainly provide us with guidance and illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness of Elohim’s most blessed Word.
1. Who was YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, speaking to?
2. When was it said?
3. How was His Word understood at the time it was spoken/given?
I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of; 1. What the Almighty is saying at the time – 2. As well as what it means to us today - and 3. Especially to you and me right now!
Satan was Suddenly Given a Name:
In Rome, Latin became the new version of the Bible and believe it or not but no one else but the hierarchy was permitted to read it, any one caught reading the blessed Word of Elohim, be it in Latin or in Hebrew or in Greek, even a good translation, the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops or Priests could freely murder these hungry souls for the truth! What kind of tragic church would do that, thus does this sound like a genuine religion of love? Certainly Not! It was very early in the translation process that the Latin word “Lucifer” was sneaked into the Hebrew Old Covenant - and remember that this word “Lucifer,” which it is NOT a name originates from the “Latin Vulgate.”
Yes, I did say “Lucifer” is a Latin word and certainly not Hebrew, thus it should never have found its way into the Blessed Scriptures, yet christians have been fooled for centuries!
But strangely enough “Lucifer” remained in many translations, yet no one was told that it was a Latin word that did not belong there! And I do mean, even in the days of that so-called very perfect “King James Version” of the “bible that in reality has well over 100,000 mistakes in it.
To this day, “Lucifer” is still found in a good number of translations such as the; King James Version, New King James Version, Darby Bible, The Living Bible, if you have a copy of one of these versions, please dump them as simple as that! I suggest that you obtain a copy of “The Scriptures” a version of the Word that uses the actual Names of The Father and the Messiah in a Hebrew font just as it was originally written in both the Old and the New Covenants; YaHVaH is found as and Yahushua as , blessed be their Sanctified Names!
Therefore the “christian” church’s tradition of “Lucifer” is erroneously influenced by incorrect and false teaching of Yeshayahu - Isaiah 14:12, for they applied this passage, which in fact only speaks to the king living at the time who simply had great ideas of himself, even thinking himself as great as a god! However, the church of Rome applied it to Satan and introduced a Latin word intending it as a proper name for He who is the Adversary of Elohim, Satan before his fall. Thus “Lucifer” suddenly became a by-word for Satan in the church and it has became extremely popular in literature, as in Dante Alighieri’s “Inferno” and John Milton’s “Paradise Lost.”
Let us read Yeshayahu - Isaiah 14:3-5;
3. “On that day
YHVH will give you relief from suffering and turmoil and cruel bondage. 4. You will take this proverb against the king of
It is tragic that almost every church today has come out of that evil and satanic “Roman Catholic Church” and we do need to remember that the key word of that name is “Rome” and the reason it is just that is for the Roman church deliberately divorced itself from Jerusalem, the very place that is called in the Word of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, the “City of Elohim.”
“He has set his
foundation on the *holy mountain;
YHVH loves the gates of
“O Jerusalem, the sanctified city!” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 52:1.
*Hebrew for “holy” is “HaKodesh” meaning; holy, “sacred” and “sanctified.”
However, why is it that this new church had to completely divorce itself from the Land and the City that Elohim had chosen as His own? There is no doubt that this new church’s hierarchy had ideas that was obviously coming from an ancient evil source, as they set up an entirely new theology that was vastly different from that which had long been faithfully taught by the Apostles and of course by our Messiah Yahushua. Thus these evil ones changed so much of Elohim’s blessed Word, both in the New Covenant and tragically the same applied to certain parts of the Old Covenant where details and also many names were completely altered, with names that contain pagan origins. The question begs “WHY?” Let me give you an example!
As I have already covered, the “christian” world is besotted with this evil persona by the name of “Lucifer.” But we already know this is an evil lie and not a Scriptural fact! But sadly to this very day, the lie continues.
Let us first read what is written in the “New King James Version.”
“12. How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! 13. For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; 14. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’ 15. Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.” Isaiah 14:12-15. NKJV.
Obviously, if you would have read the above just by itself, there is a reasonable case for thinking that this evil being “Lucifer” has to be what you have been told or heard all of your christian life and thus it must be, Satan the Devil!
However, beloved there is a really great big problem with that idea for anyone who actually knows the blessed Word! For the truth is that those evil and wicked men of the Roman church must know well that this so-called “Lucifer” is not, and certainly cannot be the evil one. How can we deduce this? Very simple, the truth is that this chapter and verses state something very different and you will find that it obviously cannot be related to a Satan at all!
Actually, it would not take very much to work this truth out for all you would have to do is to read this chapter carefully, and hello, you will discover the very simple “key words.”
But first we will check out what was really written in verse 12 of chapter 14, first we will see it in the original Ivrit - Hebrew and an accurate English translation!
“How you have fallen from up high, O morning star (Heb: “Hehlel”), son of the dawn. You have been cut down to ground, you who did prostrate the nations.” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 14:12.
You will note that “Lucifer” is nowhere to be found in the original Hebrew, thus where did it come from? I will explain the details shortly. But everyone who has even a small amount of knowledge of Hebrew will agree that obviously it was the church of Rome added the word “Lucifer” for the Hebrew word in the Scriptures is in fact; “Hehlel” , which literally means “day star” or “morning star.”
But you are asking, “What
are those “key words that you spoke about earlier?” Of course this
chapter should be read as a whole and it is one that contains a powerful
message that Yeshayahu Isaiah has to take up against the king of
“It shall come to pass in the day YHVH gives you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve, that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say: how the oppressor …” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 14:3-4.
Thus it has nothing to do with that great adversary we call Satan or the Devil, but a mere man who happens to be a king, and our Heavenly Father uses His prophet to bring him right down to earth! End of that story, the fact of chapter 14 and verse 12!
But let us look a little further into that evil word “Lucifer” and see if it had any other uses?
In the original Latin, the word Lucifer was
used in a positive sense by certain early Roman “christian” hierarchy
as was evident by its use as a personal name. There were two 4th-century
bishops, such as bishop “Lucifer of
Amazingly the Vulgate also uses the word “Lucifer” in the Book of Job;
“And your life would be brighter than noonday. Though you were dark, you would be like the morning (Heb: “HaBoker”).” Job 11:17 NKJV.
“Et quasi meridianus fulgor consurget tibi ad vesperam et cum te consumptum putaveris orieris ut lucifer.” Job 11:17 Vulgate.
However, would you believe it that in the Latin Vulgate “Lucifer” was not just used in Isaiah and Job, but it is also used in other verses and yes, and this may surprise you, even in the New Covenant, for we find the word Lucifer in Latin in the Vulgate in 2 Shime’on ben Yonah - Peter.
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning (or day) star (Gk: “phosphoros”) rises in your hearts.” 2 Shime’on - Peter 1:19 NKJV.
“Et habemus firmiorem propheticum sermonem cui bene facitis adtendentes quasi lucernae lucenti in caliginoso loco donec dies inlucescat et lucifer oriatur in cordibus vestries.” 2 Shime’on - Peter 1:19 Vulgate.
Below are a number of explanations of the Greek word used which is “phosphoros” mean both Morning - Day - Star” and these originate from the “Strongs Interlinear Hebrew and Greek Bible Concordance and Lexicons” as well as a number of other Lexicons in order that you will obtain a full and a comprehensive understanding of its meaning!
NT:5459 - Phosphoros (foce-for'-os); from NT:5457 and NT:5342; light-bearing (“phosphorus’), i.e. (specifically) the morning-star: KJV - day star.
28418 -Bringing (morning) light; substantially in the NT morning star, daystar, referring to one of the brighter planets, usually Venus; figuratively of Christ and his atoning work (2 Peter 1.19).
43297 - Bringing or giving light, substantially, the light bringer, Latin Lucifer, i.e. the morning-star, a name specially given to the planet Venus, and of certain deities, especially of Greed goddess Hecaté.
5663 - Light-bringing, giving light (Aristophanes, Euripides, Plato, Plutarch and others); as a substantive, (Latin Lucifer), the planet Venus, the morning star, daystar. See 2 Peter 1:19.
Considering that we already know that the
Latin Vulgate clearly uses the word “Lucifer” in 2
Shime’on - Peter 1:19, what the Roman church is in fact calling our
beloved Saviour by the title of “Lucifer” in this verse as is so
clearly indicated and this then is directly related to the Messiah and that
so-called Satan the Lucifer from Yeshayahu are the same. Now friends, if you
cannot find a problem with that, then it is you who have a real Scriptural
problem, for it is that satanic Roman church who has completely infiltrated the
doctrines of the entire church, regardless of the majority of denominations,
who changed the blessed Name of the Father and the Son and they have done so
much damage to the blessed faith, for the truth is that the church of Rome is
in fact completely guided by Satan, whose name of course is NOT Lucifer, but
But the truth is we should really expect all
this, for we first have to understand that the Apostle Shime’on ben Yonah,
also known as Shime’on - the Apostle never at any time
during his lifetime set a foot in the city of
To cut a long story short, Simon had a fight with the Apostle Shime’on - Peter and came to hate the Judean’s, thus he moved to Greece and Rome and he set up a new faith that would oppose them and all Scripture had to be translated into the pagan languages of Greek and Latin. Now you know where all that came from!
Concluding the Above:
Friends the point is this, man can alter the most Sanctified and Precious Word of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, if they so wish but they will do this at the peril of their lives, for “the wages of sin is death.” For it is one of the gravest of sins! Of course we are permitted to translate His Word, but we MUST translate it with great care and remain close to what the Father and His chosen Prophets had clearly told us in the original Scriptures, the Tanach – Old Covenant! The same applies to what our beloved Messiah has said and His Apostles in the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant; for we were told that we cannot alter or change His Word in any shape or form!
Do not add to His Words, lest He reprove you and you be found a liar.” Mishlei – Proverbs 30:6.
Sadly, the church and later those that came out of the harlot wife dripping with the blood of the saints, her daughters being the protestant churches generally interfered with the most Sacred Word of the Almighty and in fact in many places they made serious and blatant alterations!
Beloved, never forget that YaHVaH Elohim and He who is the Word, Who is …
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of men.” Yochanan - John 1:1-4.
He Who is The Word Who is Elohim desires you to be a “Shamar”:
Of course, YaHVaH Elohim makes it very clear in the Word about altering His Word and those in the Brit Chadashah – New Covenant, regarding He who is The Word, Who is as the Word states - “Elohim.” The Word clearly states;
“Do not add to the Word which I command you and do not take away from it, so as to guard (Shamar) the commands of YHVH your Elohim which I am commanding you.” Davarim – Deuteronomy 4:2.
“Whatsoever Word I give you, guard (shamar also means to protect) and observe it, do not add to it nor take away from it.” Davarim – Deuteronomy 12:32.
“Do not add to His Words, lest He reprove you, and you be found a liar.” Mishlei – Proverbs 30:6.
I highly suggest that you read the most wonderful study: Shamar - the link can be found at the bottom of the page! I have always asked the question, why did christianity change so many of the blessed names in the Word of Elohim?
In the Scriptures, if you check, you will find that throughout the Tanach YaHVaH’s Sanctified Name is also used in a shorter three-letter form as … “YAH” and this occurs some 46 times in the Hebrew. If you have a copy of “the Scriptures,” you will always see the correct and proper Names of our Heavenly Father and our blessed Saviour.
Below is just one example out of the 46 times the precious Name of “YAH” is found in the Tanach;
Above and below is Shemos-Exodus 15:2 in Hebrew and English
“My strength and song is YAH and He has become my salvation: This is my Elohim, and I glorify Him; Elohim of my father and I exalt Him.”
But what greatly saddens me are the many changes made of the names of the prophets
The following are just a few of those with the blessed name; Yeshayahu = Isaiah / Yirmyahu = Jeremiah / Ovadyah = Obadiah / Mattityahu = Matthew. Of course these are just a few of many, but now these can only be found in the original Hebrew and sadly most of you are unable to read Hebrew and that is why I always show all the Hebrew names of all those found in the Tanach, from Noach - Noah or Avraham - Abraham, Moshe - Moses, Ya’akov - Jacob, as well as others but also Yahushua’s Apostles, like Mathew - Mattityahu and John – Yochanan, etc. Thus besides the names, the English translations sadly contain far too many other errors and therefore teaching the precious Word of YaHVaH Elohim, Blessed be His Sanctified Name, does come from a faulty source.
A Very Special message; beloved I must say that although there are problems in the Bible with its many translations and each one being different to the other, the truth can still be found within them, for the fact is as follows – YaHVaH Elohim is the Creator of everything we know, man sinned and suffered the consequences of their actions! Elohim instituted a plan of Salvation, which was completed in and through THE Messiah our beloved Saviour when He gave His Life and shed His Precious Blood for our sin! He was placed in the tomb and remained in that tomb for a full three days and three nights and then He re-emerged and then walked and spoke with His Apostles, until He returned to be with the Father! Beloved all this Is the truth!
However, unless you have repented and been immersed in the Name of Yahushua THE Messiah, who is your true and only Saviour, NOT the jesus of the church, then you also have been redeemed by the shed Blood of the Lamb of Elohim!
“Yochanan - John saw Yahushua coming toward him and said, ‘Behold! The Lamb (HaSeh – Gk: HoAmnos) of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world’”! Yochanan - John 1:29.
When Messiah went to the Jardan - Jordan River Yochanan the Immerser said upon seeing Him “Hinei HaSeh Elohim” or “Behold the Lamb of Elohim.” The words he spoke were most remarkable, for he was in fact announcing to all the people present who this Man was, but also what His fate was going to be, even though many would not have comprehended it at the time!
There are several Hebrew and Greek words used for “lamb” for example in Yeshayahu - Isaiah 65:25 is “taleh” - “lamb” and there are also other variations for other lambs. However, it is ONLY the Sacrificial Lamb without spot and blemish that is called - “HaSeh” - “Ha” is “the” and both “Seh” and “Amnos” in Greek means “Sacrificial Lamb!” Thus, Yochanan was making it very clear to all that stood round that this was the Man who would be “the Sacrificial Lamb of Elohim!”
Thus in this Special Message, you have learned that - 1. The Bible generally available still contains the truth, but know that there are many changed names and details and I would strongly recommend obtaining a copy of “The Scriptures” a version that contains all the actual names and it is really an excellent version, personally I use it myself! 2. I have been blessed to be able to share with you one of the countless Gems that is found in the Scriptures from the Brit Chadashah and there are so many more and I pray that it has blessed you!
The Most Precious Name of All:
For the early church translators either had a one-track mind or a certain religious leading, or they simply could not know or understand Hebrew, nor the Hebrew thought process, which is most necessary in order to grasp the understanding of the Scriptures. Read again the Three Points, I posted earlier as these points are so vital to our understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim, and the same applies to translating from the original Hebrew!
And worst of all, our Messiah, our blessed Saviour was given not just a foreign name, but worst still our beloved Saviour was given a pagan name instead of His Sanctified Name of Yahushua, being the same as that great leader who took over from Moshe when he died aged 120 years of age up on that mountain, and this Yahushua known to us today as Joshua led the Children of Israel to encircle Jericho, etc! Thus, he and our blessed Saviour were named in Hebrew “Yahushua” and all we have to do to make sure that what I am saying is 100% correct, is to check Strongs Concordance number OT:3091 and NT:2424.
OT: 3091: Yehowshuwa (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); or Yehowshu`a (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader: Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. (But correctly written as Yahushua!) Bold font are the author’s notes.
NT: 2424: Iesous (ee-ay-sooce); of Hebrew origin [sorry that is wrong - its Greek] (i.e. Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites: New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Bold font are the author’s notes.
Now, the very first time the name “Joshua” appears in the Word is as follows;
“Moses said to Joshua” Shemos - Exodus 17:9.
If we check a Hebrew Tanach, we will see that his name is written precisely as follows - - being of course “Yahushua,” as explained above at; OT: 3091.
As explained earlier, originally the Gospels where written in Hebrew and not in Greek or Aramaic as some presume.
“Let it be
known to you all, and to all the people of
And did our loving Saviour not constantly ask of us to use His Name, and by that He meant His real Name and not any other name that had some other meaning having been based on a foreign name! Read what was asked of a true believer;
“Whatever you ask in My Name that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.” Yochanan - John 14:13-14.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My Name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My Name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” Yochanan - John 16:23-24.
Now, you may say, like so many
“christian’s” do, “But that is the Old Testament and
that no longer counts for the New Testament is more important now, for Jesus
has fulfilled the old one.” Shame on you! I have heard that rubbish far
too long, and believe me our heavenly Father and Yahushua our beloved Saviour
are very tired hearing from those who dare to tire Him with these hideous lies,
for obviously those who take that line have not heard and headed to the lesson
as given by our loving Messiah on the Mount of Beatitudes!
Now, you may say, like so many “christian’s” do, “But that is the Old Testament and that no longer counts for the New Testament is more important now, for Jesus has fulfilled the old one.” Shame on you! I have heard that rubbish far too long, and believe me our heavenly Father and Yahushua our beloved Saviour are very tired hearing from those who dare to tire Him with these hideous lies, for obviously those who take that line have not heard and headed to the lesson as given by our loving Messiah on the Mount of Beatitudes!
Let us take a quick look what the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant has to say about changing the Word of Elohim and how vital it is to retain the very Foundation of the Word completely pure, as well as fulfilling His will! But, some of you may have to figure out what that means. That is if you posed the questions above! Here is just a part of the Sermon of the Mount, and remember that within it Messiah mentioned the Ten Commandments a number of times, and He did not weaken these commandments, but He made some of these laws much stricter, just read the part where He speaks about adultery and marriage in Mattityahu - Matthew 5 verses 27 to 32.
The question is; was the law nailed to the tree - cross? Yes, the sacrificial laws were nailed to the tree, for our beloved Saviour was the one and only worthy Lamb, that was without spot and blemish, as He was without sin and worthy!
But, other relevant laws remain in place, not as an enforcement as some seem to think, but we should uphold them as an act of love, a loving act of obedience, for they are now in our hearts just as we can read throughout the Epistles by the Apostles, for we uphold the “Seventh Day Sabbath” not because we have to, but desire to! The same should apply to keeping the “Feasts of YaHVaH,” such as “Pesach” - “Passover” and “Sukkoth” - “Tabernacles,” etc! Now, let us see what Yahushua our loving Messiah said;
“Do not think
that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets (of the Old Covenant). I did not
come to destroy but to fulfil. For
assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away (the arrival of the
Revelation chapter 22.
“I witness to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, Elohim will add to him the plagues that are written in this book,” verse 18.
“and if anyone takes
away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim will take away his
portion from the Tree of Life (ets HaChaim) and out of the
Friends, let us be honest, I have travelled the world and visited countries all around the world and my name has been the same wherever I have been, no one has ever said, “Dear brother Reuben ben Gershom, do you mind if we change it to Robert (Bob, Ron or Ronald) for it would be better for our people to understand!” Of course that has never and would not occur; it has always been Reuben ben Gershom, or just brother Reuben. Always travelling with me is a dear brother in Messiah, who accompanies me on all our ministry tours and that is brother Kostandinos Yurios Chazantonakis, but he is known by his shortened name as Kosta and yes, he is always called by that name!
The question begs, why they changed so many of the names:
Remove the most Sanctified Name of “YHVH Elohim.”
“How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, who try to make My people forget My Name (YHVH) by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbour, as their fathers forgot My Name for Baal.” Yirmyahu - Jeremiah 23:26-27.
Tragically, the Sanctified Name of “YaHVaH” our Elohim was declared as forbidden to be used by the ancient rabbis and amazingly they used the Torah, “The Five Books of Moshe” completely in error and out of context to justify their stand! Yet, the four original Hebrew letters remained in the Torah as well as the scrolls of the Prophets, but in due course in most printed books, such as Jewish prayer books, etc, the four letter name of - YHVH was changed to , which was pronounced by Jews as “Adonai” meaning “LORD” or Master. Others will use HaSHEM when the four letter name of - YHVH still appears in the Hebrew scrolls of the Torah, when they are called up to read a portion, or part from the reading from the prophets, etc! But thus many Jews will use the term “HaShem,” meaning “The Name” and others will use “Adonai”! Both of aforementioned terms, I believe are an insult to the most Sanctified Name of YaHVaH Elohim, Sanctified be His blessed Name!
It should also be noted, and this is something
that many do not really know or understand, what is thought of as the attribute
or title of “God” actually originates directly from a pagan
background and it does not take much research to check this out. In fact
“God” comes from an ancient pagan god named “gad”
(fortune) who had an associate in “Meni” (destiny). Although we
do know that there were certain ones in
As time changed with the growth of the Roman Church, that no longer considered Jerusalem as its base or even as a “Holy City”, but now Jerusalem had been replaced by Rome with its new Temple that would in due course become the massive Vatican, that was being built there as having a new “Holies of Holies” it was required as the church spread to many lands a more suitable name was required for their deity. They decided on “God” being a derivative from the German Gott, the Persian Khoda and the Hindustani Khuda are all derived from the same root that appears in Celtic Aeddon or Guydion, the Germanin Odin, Woden or Goutan and the Indian Buddha or Gotama!
For interest, the earliest uses of the word
“God” was found in Germanic writing and often cited to be in the
“Gothic Bible” or “Wulfila Bible,” which is the
Scriptures as translated by “Wulfila” or as he is better known
Bishop Ulfilas, into the Gothic language as was spoken by the Eastern Germanic
and Gothic Tribes. The oldest parts of the Gothic Bible contained in the
“Codex Argenteus” that is estimated to be from around the fourth
century. During this time, the Goths were converted to
“christianity’ mostly by the means of this Bishop Ulfilas who we
know translated the Bible into the Gothic language in Nicopolis ad Istrum that
is in today’s northern
are those who forsake YHVH, who forget My Sanctified mountain, who prepare a
table for Gad and who furnish a drink offering for Meni.” Yeshayahu -
“But you are those who forsake YHVH, who forget My Sanctified mountain, who prepare a table for Gad and who furnish a drink offering for Meni.” Yeshayahu - Isaiah 65:11.
Many today think of “god” to be a name of the Almighty, no if it had been a proper Scriptural word, such as - “Elohim” it would be an “attribute” or a “title,” in other words it is what YaHVaH actually is! Thus, as I have stated the actual word used in the Hebrew Scriptures is “Elohim,” or “El” and we must avoid using the title Gad or any derivative like God or G-d as soon as possible, for it is in fact the name of a number of pagan god’s!
Personally, I believe that we should use the full Name and title whenever we must use the Name of our blessed Creator, “YaHVaH Elohim” or “Yahushua the Messiah.”
Beloved, any other name or title is incorrect and we should really pray about what you have read in this study in order that His love and blessing will touch you with His understanding and not just what I have written, for nothing matters, but what really cares, His blessed will for it will also decide your whole life and eternal future!
Father Elohim, I give you praise and thanks for the opportunity to be able to share Your Word and I pray Father Elohim that it will be You Who will touch lives and give them discernment and not just the written words of a man! For it is only though Your greatness and our blessed Saviour, Messiah Yahushua who gave His life and shed His precious Blood for our sins, what matters and we are to understand the plan of salvation, and thus we need to know Your Word of truth! I praise You in the highest and I thank You, for I know YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be Your Sanctified Name, that you will touch and change lives right now for the times we are living in are shocking, for there is so much evil is all around us, and we must stand apart! Thus Abba - Father, let the Ekklesia of the faithful grow in order that the Name of Yahushua will be exclaimed and praised in places and lands everywhere. I pray this in Yahushua’s most blessed Name!
me Your way, O YHVH. I will walk in Your truth.
UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR YOUR NAME!”
me Your way, O YHVH. I will walk in Your truth.
Tehillim – Psalms 86:11
May YaHVaH Elohim bless and keep you in the palm of His hand, in Messiah Yahushua’s loving Name!

Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father.
