God’s Name

When one does more research, they find that there are a multitude of names of places and people–even names of kings–that have meanings that center around God. These names begin with Jeho in English (Yeho in Hebrew) and some even include God’s whole name: Jehovah.

People:
Jehozabad = “Jehovah has endowed”
Jehohanan = “Jehovah has graced”
Jehoiada = “Jehovah knows”
Jehoiachin = “Jehovah establishes”
Jehoiakim = “Jehovah raises up”
Jehoiarib = “Jehovah contends”
Jehonadab = “Jehovah is willing”
Jonathan or Jehonathan = “Jehovah has given”
Joseph (Yĕhowceph) = “Jehovah (Yehovah) has added”
Jehoadah = “Jehovah has adorned”
Jehoaddan = “Jehovah delights”
Jehozadak or Josedech = “Jehovah is righteous”
Jehoram or Joram = “Jehovah is exalted”
Jehosheba = “Jehovah has sworn”
Jehoshabeath = “Jehovah is an oath”
Joshua or Jehoshua = “Jehovah is salvation”
Jehoshaphat = “Jehovah has judged”
Joel = “Jehovah is God”

Places:
Jehovah-jireh = “Jehovah sees”
Jehovah-nissi = “Jehovah is my banner”
Yĕhovah tsidqenuw = “Jehovah is our righteousness”
Jehovah-shalom = “Jehovah is peace”
Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”

And these are just the people who were important enough to be mentioned in the Bible. Doubtless there were other people that also had these names. We cannot changed God’s name to Yahweh without changing every one of these names–and even the name of Jerusalem itself! (Jehovah-shammah = “Jehovah is there”)

One last thing—in the KJV, God is referred to as ‘Jah’. This is a CONTRACTION. When you have a contraction, you have taken letters out of the middle. To wit: J ehov ah  Jah.

Newer versions incorrectly translate this as ‘Yah’ because they have CHANGED the J (Hebrew ‘Jod’) to a Y!! This is part of their plan, to change the Tetragrammaton, in order to attempt to change God’s name to Yahweh in the newer (corrupt) Bible translation.

To see what the Hebrew alphabet really is, look at the section headings of Psalms 119 in an AUTHORIZED King James Bible.

A Verse That Stumbles?

I’ll admit, as the Lord revealed to me that His name is Jehovah, there was ONE verse that stumbled me.  So I sought the Lord in prayer, for understanding.  This is what He revealed to me.

(First, we must remember that although the KJV translates YHVH (Yehovah) as sometimes Jehovah, and other times LORD or GOD, if we were reading the Hebrew text, it would say Yehovah (Jehovah) in ALL of these places.  When a person, or angel, or God Himself said ‘Jehovah, GOD, or LORD’, the Hebrew listener would have heard ‘Yehovah’.  In order to remind us of that, I’m going to insert the Hebrew name in parentheses after the translated name, in the verses that follow).

Here is the problem verse:

‘And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by [the name of] God Almighty (El Shaddai), but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.’  (Exodus 6:3)

Because it appears to contradict by this verse:

‘And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD (Yehovah) it shall be seen.’  (Genesis 22:14)

How could Abraham have named a place after Jehovah/God if he did not know His name was Jehovah (Yehovah)?  This type of ‘knowing’ must not be what was meant.  Is there another type of knowing?  Yes.  There is a knowing by revelation . . . by EXPERIENCE.

God uses many variations of His name to express different aspects of His character.  All of these names are fulfilled in the relationship of Jesus Christ to man.  They foreshadowed and pointed the way to what Jesus Christ would do.  We do not know EXACTLY what the meaning of ‘Jehovah’ is.  But the Bible gives us a few clues:

  • The Hebrew Word ‘hovah’ HVH means: ruin, disaster.

The name Je hovah (Ye hovah) ends with this.  But what could the Je/Ye part of His name mean?  I believe the answer is to be found in the very same passage as the verse that stumbled me . . .

‘And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by [the name of] God Almighty (El Shaddai), but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them . . .

. . . And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I [am] the LORD (Yehovah), and I will BRING YOU OUT from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will RID YOU OUT OF their BONDAGE, and I will REDEEM you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD (Yehovah) your God (Elohiym), which BRINGETH YOU OUT from under the burdens of the Egyptians.’  (Ex 6:3-7)

So, here we have it:

I am Jehovah . . . I will bring you out . . . rid you of bondage . . . and redeem you.  I am Jehovah which brings you out of bondage.

This is how God defines His name.  Bring out of, rid of, redeem from . . .what word encompasses all these definitions?  Deliver.

I am Jehovah . . . I will deliver you . . . deliver you . . . and deliver you.  I am Jehovah which delivers you.

And indeed, this ties back to the verse that was apparently a contradiction:

‘And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD (Yehovah) it shall be seen.’  (Genesis 22:14)

What happened there that caused Abraham to build an altar called Jehovahjireh?

‘And they came to the place which God (Elohiym) had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood. And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

And the angel of the LORD (Yehovah) called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here [am] I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God (Elohiym), seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son] from me.

And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD (Yehovah) it shall be seen.’  (Gen. 22:9-14)

Jehovahjireh . . . In the mount of the Lord, IT SHALL BE SEEN.  Je (deliverance from) hovah (ruin) shall be seen.

And this passage is a perfect illustration and confirmation of how God delivers!  Here on mount Moriah He delivered Isaac from ruin and destruction, while providing a foreshadowing of how Jesus would deliver US from ETERNAL ruin and destruction.  Some even say that Mount Moriah was the same mount where Jesus was crucified.  If this is true, it provides another motive for obscuring the name of God: to remove any connection between deliverance and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Back to the original verse and its meaning:

‘And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by [the name of] God Almighty (El Shaddai), but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.’  (Exodus 6:3)

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew (EXPERIENCED) God as ‘El Shaddai’ (which the concordance defines as: Almighty; most powerful).  But they had not known Him as their deliverer.  This verse was spoken to Moses just before He delivered them from Egypt.  They would now know (EXPERIENCE) firsthand, His deliverance.

‘For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:  For this [is] my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.’  (Romans 11:25-27)

Why Call Him Jehovah?

For those of you who are confused about this ‘correct name of God’ stuff, and have doubts about whether God’s name is Jehovah, because of lies put forth by deceivers . . . this should confirm, once and for all, that His name IS Jehovah . . .

Surely there exists concrete archeological evidence of the different kings whose names began with ‘Jeho’ and had meanings such as ‘Jehovah is exalted’.

Or Joseph . . . is there any question that one of the sons of Jacob/Israel was named Joseph?
What is his name in Hebrew? Yĕhowceph
Translation: ‘Jehovah has added’.

Jonathan, son of King Saul:
Hebrew: Yĕhownathan
Translation: ‘Jehovah has given’.

Jehoiakim, the third from the last king of Judah:
Hebrew: Yĕhowyaqiym
Translation: ‘Jehovah raises up’

ETC. These are just a few of the names in the Bible based on a reference to God. They confirm, at least, that the first four letters of God’s name (in Hebrew) are ‘Yeho’ (YH) . . . in English, ‘Jeho’.

This ‘Sacred Names’ stuff is NOT a movement within Christianity. It is an infiltration OF Christianity BY witchcraft.

Here are a couple of very recent, good videos on this subject.  This heresy is spreading rapidly and we need to know how to correctly respond.

(Continued from Will Your Children’s Blood Be Upon Your Hands?)

Things in America are such a mess–where DO we begin?

I am always inspired by the story of Gideon, who led a very small band of warriors to victory.  With a few people who are committed to doing what is right, and with the supernatural help of God, anything can be overcome.

I know, that for every ten people who read this post, one might be inspired.  And of every ten who are inspired, one may actually be moved to do something.  So, I’m probably only speaking to one person, since I don’t have that many readers!!  If I knew who you were, maybe I could tailor this post to you.  ; )

Whoever you are, I don’t know what common ground we share.  I don’t know if you are a Christian, or if you even believe in God/Jehovah.  I am not trying to persuade you to become a Christian, if you are not.

Lets assume that we have only three things in common

  1. we have the longing to do right
  2. we want to know the truth
  3. we are Americans

May I ask you to entertain the idea that there may be a God above us all, and that He loves what is right and true, and hates what is deceitful and wrong?

I believe there is such a God, and that He is speaking to my heart– saying that America is doing much more wrong than good, and it displeases Him.  I believe He wants us to turn from evil and begin to do good again, so that we may live in peace.  I believe He wants to help us  turn things around in America–but I believe He wants us to clean things up in our own lives too.

I believe, if we want His supernatural help (and we surely need it), that we need to do things His way–rightly and honestly–and that we need to strive to be right and true in our own lives.  I believe that He wants us to take the first step, if we want His help.

I believe, if we will begin by giving up even one bad thing we are doing, He will see it as a step we are taking towards Him, and He will reward that effort.

You have probably heard people say that God/Jehovah is judging America.  If that is true, then we know from His Bible that there is a remedy:  If those who believe in God will apologize to Him for the bad things they are doing–and stop doing them–God will hear their prayers, forgive them, and fix things in their country.

If God is real, if He is judging America, and if we want to see America fixed, then we have to stop doing bad things in our own lives first.

So, here is my hope:

  • I hope that there are a few people throughout America, who will stop doing wrong and ask God to forgive and help them.
  • Then, I hope that these people will begin to learn about what is going on (God will supernaturally lead them to the information).
  • When they learn what is going on, I hope they will begin to shine light on it–expose it–by telling others (God will help them have the courage to tell others).
  • I believe, if enough people turn to doing what is right, and ask God for His help, He will step in and fix the mess.

I know that’s not the way most people would deal with things–but the problems and schemes confronting America are too broad, and wide, and deep, for us to know how to fix them ourselves.

God, however, can wave His hand over the whole big mess, over every evil scheme, and cause it to unravel.  Then He can show us the right way to put things back together.   If we allow God to be our leader and protector, we will live in peace.

If we do it this way, God will punish the guilty Himself and protect the innocent.  If we do it this way, we will not be among the guilty.  If we do it this way, none of us will have blood on our hands.  If we do it this way, God’s blessings can once again shine down upon America, and we can live in peace.

When Is The Rapture?

Deathbed Conversions

I am posting the comment below (submitted in response to:  ‘Christians, Vampires, and Dragons’) because it summarizes a lot of false beliefs that are popular these days.

“No mortal man should know the name and will of god. As mortals, we have no right to deem what is suitable for all. Only god will deem each man and woman worthy of heaven.

So many have redone the bible, ripped out sections and tried to adapt it to themselves.

Salvation is found in the true belief and love of god, however you choose to find god. True faith is found in the love and acceptance of all people, as jesus christ taught the masses.

To do other is to do evil.

To believe any mortal knows the will of god is arrogance. To pretend to know it is a blasphemy all it’s own. God never speaks or comes through mortal man.

The words of a page are written by man. The words of faith are written by man. Only a true believer will know god, not by written words or coersion. Only true faith will lead each to god.

To have the love of christ, to share it with others, is to not judge–to accept, love and nurture each as who they are. Jesus Christ didn’t demand his followers to be different. He merely helped them be better people. He nurtured, guided and loved.

How can anyone, as followers of Christ, do less?”

 

When a person has too much pride in himself, he will be offended at the nature of God.

  • If a man prides himself on being ‘tolerant’, he will be offended that God appears to be intolerant.
  • If a man prides himself on being nonjudgmental, he will be offended to learn that God judges.
  • If a man prides himself on being kind, he will be offended at actions of God that he deems to be unkind.
  • If a man is exceedingly proud, he will be offended at any indication that God can be humble.

When man is prideful, he will be offended at the nature of God.  Then, he will set about to create a god in his own image–a god that reflects and protects his prejudices and beliefs . . . a god that excuses his weaknesses and justifies his behavior.  The gods that men create are gods that rubber stamp their beliefs and behaviors.

The ‘tolerant’ man will create a tolerant god, the nonjudgmental man will create a god that does not judge, the kind man will create a god who seems to be very kind, the exceedingly prideful man will create a god who is exceedingly arrogant, etc.

The god a man creates is a window into the man’s soul.

It usually turns out, however, that these ‘nonjudgmental’ gods appear to be quite judgmental towards others who don’t believe in them.  These ‘tolerant’ gods are quite intolerant of those who believe in Jehovah-God.  The kind gods are quite hostile towards those who follow the one, true God.

If your god is truly so tolerant, nonjudgmental, and kind . . . then lets see that reflected in your attitude, throughout the course of your life, towards EVERYONE–including those of us who follow Jehovah (because we surely do not serve the same God!)

And that is the crux of the matter–we do not serve the same God!

My God is not ‘tolerant’.  He is not nonjudgmental.  Nor is He always kind (according to the standards of man) in the short term.  He is a God of black and white . . . truth vs. lies . . . light vs. darkness . . . good vs. evil.  In fact, my God is SO judgmental that He will not just judge men by their actions–but by the intent of their heart!

It just happens that Jehovah/God does not fit  with the current picture of what is culturally acceptable!!

What absurd arrogance, to believe that our grand life experience (all of 120 years or less) qualifies us to know what nature God must have to equip him to rule the entire universe through all the ages!  How short sighted man is!

When men creates gods, they are gods that are relevant to their times and prejudices.  But, how will their god hold up when times and conditions change?  How can their god be fair and equitable, truly kind, righteous, and good, if everything and everyone is tolerated, and no one is ever judged?

What does their weak, ineffective god do or say when some pedophile kidnaps their little daughter, then rapes, tortures and kills her?  Is he tolerant of the pedophile?  Surely their tolerant, nonjudgmental god cannot judge him!  And if that pedophile commits suicide to avoid capture–will he be judged in the hereafter?  Who knows?  According to you,

‘As mortals, we have no right to deem what is suitable for all. Only god will deem each man and woman worthy of heaven.’

How great, and good, and just would you now believe your god to be if he decided not to judge that man?  If there was never justice or recompense for loss?

Or, what if he does judge that man?  Then we have to feel sorry for him, in a way, because (according to you)

‘To believe any mortal knows the will of god is arrogance. To pretend to know it is a blasphemy all it’s own. God never speaks or comes through mortal man.’

How could a pedophile, kidnapper, or murderer know that what he was doing was wrong . . . if man cannot know the will of your god?  If your god does not communicate with man?  Perhaps such actions felt perfectly suitable to him–why should he be judged for doing what ‘came naturally’ to him, if others are not judged by the same standard?

Your ‘god’ is  full of holes.  Have you really taken the time to think this through?

Now let me answer some of your other points . . . based on what I DO know of the nature and will of God–Jehovah.

“True faith is found in the love and acceptance of all people, as jesus christ taught the masses.”

Jesus never equated ‘true faith’ with loving and accepting all people.  Nor did he accept the behavior of all people. He was clearly displeased with the Sanhedrin and the moneychangers.

Maybe you should go back and read a little more about Jesus–you can find the chronicles of his ministry in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  Also, much is taught about Him, by the apostles, in the books of Acts, Romans, and Hebrews.

“To do other is to do evil.”

Your opinion and definition.

“To have the love of christ, to share it with others, is to not judge–to accept, love and nurture each as who they are.”

Are we talking about the same Jesus?  God, come to Earth as man . . . born in the flesh, of a virgin . . . lived a perfect life . . . had neither wife nor kids . . . ministered for three and a half years . . . was crucified . . . died . . . then rose again on the third day . . .?

Those of us who believe in THIS Jesus are each called first to REPENT, then to turn from our wickedness, and to follow Him!

Jesus says that if we love Him, we must obey His commands.  He also explained that He is God, and His commands are the spirit of the ten commandments.  If we are loving/obeying Him, we will be living in harmony with the ten commandments.

‘nurture each other as ‘who they are’–no, we are called to correct, rebuke, and encourage each other.  Two of those three terms signify a confrontation of another’s behavior.  According to your jesus, we would only need to encourage one another.

Jesus Christ didn’t demand his followers to be different. He merely helped them be better people. He nurtured, guided and loved.

How can anyone, as followers of Christ, do less?”

Did He demand? No.  Did He teach them to be different?  Yes.  He urged them to understand the spirit of the Law, and to do ‘above and beyond’ what it required of them.

Following Jesus is a free-will choice.  It is not demanded of anyone.  But if one follows Him, then they must submit to His ways.

“Salvation is found in the true belief and love of god, however you choose to find god.”

Excuse me?  You create a god that you can truly love and believe in–then that leads to your salvation . . . How exactly do you define salvation? And what do you  need salvation from, if your jesus just loves and accepts everything about you, as you are  now?

God, through His Word, the Bible, teaches that we need salvation from our SINS.  Which means that everything is NOT tolerable and acceptable.  It means that we are NOT already ok, and just in need of love and acceptance,  nurture and guidance.

The heart of man is sinful and that sinful nature will give birth to acts of sin.  Sinful acts require judgment, from a righteous God.  We need salvation from ourselves–but your religion deifies your self!

“The words of a page are written by man. The words of faith are written by man.”

Yeah, yeah.  Over forty authors, writing over a period of about 2,000 years . . . a multitude of prophecies fulfilled, etc.  . . . just coincidence . . . merely the work of men . . . blah, blah, blah . . . whatever.

“So many have redone the bible, ripped out sections and tried to adapt it to themselves.”

Sadly, it seems this is what you are doing.  Your ‘understanding’ surely has not taken into consideration the entirety of Scripture.  The little bit of what you say that actually seems to have some small relation to the Bible, pertains to Jesus.  Yet even there, I see no indication that you have actually read any of it.  The little bit of what you say about Jesus is the sort of thing one picks up from listening to others’ opinions.

“No mortal man should know the name and will of god.”

No mortal man should know his name–what caused you to develop such a strange opinion?

And how can your god hold men accountable for their actions if they don’t know his will– oh wait, he doesn’t judge does he?  So . . .  we should all just do what seems best to us, and if he likes us we’ll get to go to heaven?

How do you know that what you think is good is the same as what your god thinks is good?  What if your god loves the ways of pedophiles, kidnappers, murderers and thieves–and you aren’t one?

But, here is the conclusion of the matter:

“Only a true believer will know god, not by written words or coercion. Only true faith will lead each to god.”

The god that you talk about is a god that you have created for yourself–and your god is a projection of your own prideful beliefs about yourself.

That pride is what you call ‘true faith’.  But, you are right that your ‘true faith’ (your pride) will lead you to your god, because:

You ARE your god!

Hopefully these posts have given you much to think about, and taught you things about Islam that you did not know.  There are another 40+ facts here.

Here is something else to consider:

Islam is an abomination.  Islam brings devastation.  Whether Islam will be  ‘THE abomination that brings desolation’ . . . we’ll have to wait and see.

Know your God!  Do not blaspheme the character of God/Jehovah/the Creator by saying that He and Allah are the same!

These acts are inspired by Allah.  His followers claim he is God.  The Bible tells us God/Jehovah is the Creator.  Are these the acts of a creator . . . or acts of the destroyer?  The end product testifies of its author . . .
