Exodus 3:14-16

14And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM (AHYH/Ahyah) hath sent me unto you.

15And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the YHWH/Yahua HE WHO IS (Vainly translated LORD) God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

16Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt:

It’s clear what the Most High said his name was. So?  how do we say his name so that we are not taking his name in VAIN and therefore breaking the 3rd commandment, unintentionally?

Exodus 20:7

7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Today we see that YHWH in the bible has been substituted with the word LORD, is this right? Lets see…

Let’s take a look at the word VAIN in Hebrew to get an idea of what this commandment is talking about.

This is found in the Hebrew Concordance Strongs Number 7723

shawv, shav

7723 shav’ shawv or shav {shav}; from the same as 7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjective), uselessness (as deceptive, objective; also adverbially, in vain):–false(-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.

From the above we can look at the words such as “Lie”, “Lying” “uselessness”, we should also remember that this word can be used to mean literally destroy something – or morally destroying something….

In this case Calling the Most High any thing less than “I AM” (Yahua) or “Father” (ABBA), which is how the Messiah said to pray when referring to the Most High (YHWH/Yahua), would be seen as making the Most high’s name “useless”.

Remember How the Messiah said we should pray….

Matthew 6:9

9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

One thing to remember is that you shouldn’t condemn yourself if you have unintentionally been calling the Most High LORD, JEHOVAH or GOD, remember as true believers we should be worshiping with understanding.

The Messiah’s Grace is given as a covering for unintentional sins, so if you have been calling the Most High a name which is useless you can change (Repent) that TODAY, something we are all guilty of!

Here’s what the Law says about Unintentional Sin (Sin is doing anything that YHWH disapproves of)

Leviticus 5:17-19

17And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

18And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.

19It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the LORD.

***No offering is Required the Messiahs is the offering (New Covenant) Fulfilling Daniel 9:27, but this doesn’t making this Moral principle void ****

So we see that we are still guilty if we commit sin that we are not aware of too, so we don’t have to know we are lying or making the name of the Most High useless to be in sin.

CONCLUSION

There is no word or name in any language that we can call the Most High, which will do justice to his name which means I AM, I WILL BE or To EXIST, only YHWH/Yahua can properly describe and acknowledge who the Most High is.

Exodus 3:15

15And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the YHWH/Yahua (Vainly translated LORD) God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

2 Timothy 2:19

19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord (YHWH) knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

***REMEMBER*** Saying the Most Highs name will not save you, alone..! we MUST KEEP ALL HIS COMMANDMENTS and endure to the end as the Messiah and scriptures have said…

Matthew 5:19

19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

There is Myth that taking the Most High’s name in VAIN had something to do with not saying his name or, which has resulted in substituting it with another word,  this where we get titles such as GOD, LORD and JEHOVAH. Unfortunately this is causing sincere believers to sin unintentionally.

Reading shows that there is no law that that says we are not to say the Fathers name. So if we do say his name let us be accurate and say it in it’s proper hebraic tongue YAHUA (YHWH).

There is no substitution of the Most Highs name in any other different language which is acceptable.

Lets now consider the Father and Son who are ONE (not the same but one in behaviour, goal and mission) we also need to consider the Messiah’s name too.

Is Jesus the name of the Messiah?

Lets see….

The scriptures say… “thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall SAVE his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)

The question(s) to ask are –

is JESUS a Hebrew word? (because the Messiah was Hebrew) and,

does JESUS mean “Save”? The answer to both questions is NO.

So let’s find out what the Hebrew word for save is….

H1954

hoshea

ho-shay’-ah

From H3467; deliverer; salvation; Hoshea, the name of five Israelites: – Hosea,Hoshea, Oshea.

So Hosea means salvation, if we add to that Yah (which is the name of the Most High) we get…

yeho shua yehoshua

yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah

From H3068 and H3467; Father-saved; Yehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: – Yehoshua, Yehoshuah, Yoshua. Compare H1954, H3442. the Father saves

Commonly spelt

Yahshua and Yahushua

On proper investigation these are both spelled incorrectly because to spell them this way would mean Yah cries out, the correct way to sound out the Messiah’s name would be

YAHUSHA

Incidentally Joshua’s name was originally Hosea before Moses changed it to Joshua, which should really be Yahusha, see scripture below…

Numbers 13:16

16These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.

***NOTE there were no J’s until the 17th century, use of the J has substituted the Y, over time, in some Latin languages such as French J can still have a Y sound, we should consider this when pronouncing the Messiahs name, because there is no J sound in Hebrew***

The Messiah’s name should be kept in line with the Fathers Yahua (YHWH), that being said it can be rendered as:

YAHUSHA <===== You can pronounce it as you see it

This literally means that the Messiah has “saved or delivered”, and not that he will save or is going to save or the father cries out.

CONCLUSION

Just as we shouldn’t change Yahua (YHWH) with a word that makes it vain such as “LORD” the same is true for the Messiah’s name, if we are going to say his name we should understand what the name means when we call upon the Messiah (Yahusha), which is supposed to mean “Saviour”, (because he has saved us from our sins remember – the Messiah came to be the ultimate sacrifice, Matthew 1:21) and literally the Father Saves.

So let us keep ALL the COMMANDMENTS, in Spirit and Truth…

***PERSONAL TESTIMONY**** There was a time that I held on to the name of “Jesus”, mainly because of tradition, but when the Ruach Kodesh (Holy Spirit) made me aware of its meaning i.e. making the Fathers name of no effect (vain) I was eager to search out the true name.

I was in a Pentecostal church at the time of receiving this revelation, the Spirit whispered to me “that is not his name” From that point on I sincerely searched out his name, before that I had heard the name Yahushua, but I still didn’t see great importance in it. It was something that I thought only the pseudo- Jewish people called the Messiah. (Something most people are lead to believe, I’m sure)

***NOTE*** Remember saying the Father and Sons names correctly will not save us! we must keep all the commandments not just the 3rd commandment or fourth, but all the commandments that we have the power to keep.

We are to search out our own salvation, we should not allow pastors or those leaders of institutional Christianity to dictate to us, things which are contrary to what the Spirit is teaching us, from the scriptures. We must  endeavor to live holier than them especially, if they don’t except the truth…

Also remember what the book of revelations says that the true believers will have the name of the Father, something that you now have access to here, as well as his son.

I’ll leave you with the words of the greatest man ALIVE!!

Matthew 5:17-20

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Peace and Shalom!
