Category Archives: 2. The Name – YahuShua
A question was asked of me at HisSpace.com (Messianic Jew site) regarding the proper name of YahuShua (Jesus) and God:
Question #1: “Why the Prophetic Word Given Me Does NOT Use PROPER Hebrew Names for Yahweh/Yahuwah and Yahushua(Yeshua)”
Here are my responses:
I am well aware of these things, for Yahweh/Yahuwah has made these things known to me, and I do pray to Yahweh/Yahuwah in Yeshua’s/Yahushua’s name. Yet to most Americans (and the English-speaking countries) this is not known; and so all that I write from Him is spoken and written in such a manner that these who only know Him as “Lord”, Jesus, Christ and God & Father will receive His word and understand. Therefore, they are given the Word in the only way they know it, even as the sincere milk of the Word…the meat of the Word will come later, only after which time they are fully converted in their hearts. Then can they receive of that which was first and without corruption.
But understand this: YahuShua (Jesus) knows His audience and the hearts and minds of men & women, and if such an one calls on His name, by the only name of Mashiach that he knows, which is Jesus Christ, then the Lord knows this and will receive them, knowing that which is in their heart and to Whom they were calling.
In other languages, the Mashiach is called by other names also, each name meaning the same thing (as long as these names are referring to the true Mashiach, Yahushua, and not to false gods, etc.). And because of this, Yahweh/Yahuwah puts no difference between a person calling on His name in English or Hebrew, or in any other language, for the Lord judges according to the heart and not according one’s ignorance.
And so, if those, who endeavored to change Yahweh/Yahuwah’s and Yahushua’s name for the purpose of deception, they have accomplished nothing, neither has Yahweh/Yahuwah given satan any power in this matter. The Lord is a respecter of no persons, nor of the languages they speak. If this were so, then only the Hebrews would be saved and the Gentiles would be lost, because of their ignorance of the Hebrew language. Yet the Gentiles who believe, and are truly converted in their hearts, are saved because of their belief and knowledge of Yahushua, and not according to their knowledge of His name in Hebrew. For Mashiach was lifted up from the earth, so He might draw ALL men to Himself. Amen.
Therefore, as Paul was sent out, likewise am I sent: To the Jews, I speak as a Jew…to the Gentiles, I speak as a Gentile. And the same for the United States; and the same will I do when I go to Africa, as Yahweh/Yahuwah commands.
Blessings to you, in Yahushua, The Mashiach,
Question #2: “If you know all these things why use the [incorrect] name here?”
Yahushua has said, ‘none can come to Me unless the Father first draws them to me.’
And if this same one drawn of Yahweh/Yahuwah comes to me with questions concerning these things, I will teach them the same as you have shown me. For these things have indeed become an offense, yea, even a blasphemy, to certain peoples with knowledge of them…the Lord judge, not I. And so, we should speak and so do, each according to their faith and understanding. But of these without knowledge it is not an offense for they haven’t any knowledge. To the one who knows it is sin to that same one it is sin.
Therefore, be careful not to feed the meat or solid food to the babes when it is only milk they can digest, lest they stumble and the devil come and take that which was sown in their hearts. For as yet, they have no root. When they have grown in the true Vine and have been pruned by the Father, then beginning to bear fruit, then we can teach them so the may grow up in faith in a more perfect way. Yet remember, at ignorance Yahweh/Yahuwah does wink (Acts 17:30). And those who do not speak Hebrew will hear His name in their own language, even according to how and where they grew up…
Also during the ‘Last Week’, once again, will many, by the power of the Holy Spirit, come to hear the Truth in their own languages just as it was in the Apostle’s day, according to God’s will and perfect timing.
Acts 2:6 “When they heard this sound, a crowd gathered; they were confused, because each one heard the believers speaking in his own language. 7 Totally amazed, they asked, “How is this possible? Aren’t all these people who are speaking from the Galil? 8 How is it that we hear them speaking in our native languages? 9 We are Parthians, Medes, Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Y’hudah, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome; 11 Jews by birth and proselytes; Jews from Crete and from Arabia. . . ! How is it that we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things God has done?”
Yet brother, do not be confused by my speech and know, I am not surprised in the least at the deceptions of men and satan. For the history Yahweh/Yahuwah’s and Yahushua’s Holy names being replaced with pagan names or derivatives of such is no accident.
This is similar to how the Holy Days have been replaced with and some corrupted with pagan names and practices. i.e. Easter (pagan name and practices) replacing First Fruits and Passover. And Christmas being filled with all kinds of paganism…all in all taking that which is Holy and mixing it with that which is an abomination, breaking the first 3 and 4 and sometimes all the Commandments.
Of the Holy Days I am also to teach and call into remembrance in the honoring of Yahweh/Yahuwah and Yahushua’s fulfillment of them, even unto the preaching against the modern “holidays” of men.
To Yahuwah be all the glory and to the Lamb.
Blessings to you and all your beloved in Yahushua,
Gracehead friends: I have also had this issued from the flip-side come up also in exactly the same way, where a Christian said that you cannot be saved if you use the name, Yeshua or Yahushua. Only the name, Jesus, is the name by which we must be saved….according to the Bible. I responded that Jesus’ name in the original Hebrew was not Jesus, but Yeshua/Yahushua. And that these text came first then the Greek, which translates it “Ioesus” and then later the English, Jesus. However he became very upset and went on to tell me that Yahushua means “hell”. Which is very disturbing…hearing that some people out there actually teach this.
We know this: “…I am the one who searches minds and hearts, and that I will give to each of you what your deeds deserve.” ~ Rev. 2:23
