Part 4

 

 

Q. Why speak Hebrew when we are not Jewish or Israelis?

A. 'At that time, I (Y┴OHU UL) will change the speech of My returning, repentant people to pure Hebrew, so that they may worship Y┴OHU UL together in harmony and in unity!' - Zephaniah 3:9, Tanakh or Hebrew Holy Scriptures (Biblia Hebraica).

So you see, it has always been the purpose of Y┴OHU UL, our Maker, to purify the tongues of His returning (repentant) people, because you will remember that, since that great Tower-of-Babylon fiasco, the tongues of men have been cursed, except for archaic, original Hebrew.

You cannot avoid Hebrew, if you are really a seeker of the Holy One of Israel, your Maker: Y┴OHU UL. Every time you open up your Tanakh or Holy Scriptures, you are in Hebrew ground! Your mere saying of 'amen' is already Hebrew! Y┴OHU UL, the Source of our life, spoke Hebrew to Adam and Eve in Paradise. Even angels communicate to personages in the Holy Scriptures in Hebrew, our Savior is Hebrew, the apostles and the prophets spoke Hebrew too! It is the heavenly and sacred language!

That is why ha-satan (the dragon, serpent) hates it because he hates anything that is sacred to our Creator, Y┴OHU UL. On the other hand, the snake loves Latin because it is the language of witchcraft and the poisonous tongue. Even the flesh is against Hebrew, but we walk in the 'R┌KHA' (or Spirit), because we are regenerated individuals, having received Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA as our one and only personal Ruler and Redeemer!

'Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow-citizens with Y┴OHU UL's people and members of Y┴OHU UL's household!' - Ephesians 2:19, Holy Scriptures.

'A real Jewish person is anyone whose heart is right with Y┴OHU UL.... For Y┴OHU UL is looking for those with CHANGED, renewed and regenerated hearts and minds!' - Romans 2:29, Holy Scriptures.

'For this reason, I kneel before Y┴OHU UL, from Whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derive its NAME!' - Ephesians 3:1 Holy Scriptures.

So if you are truly regenerated spiritually, then, Y┴OHU UL considers you as real Jewish, and if your are considered by our Y┴OHU Ab˙ (Father) as belonging to Him and His race, then isn't it a great privilege to be speaking the King's language? What blessing! What privilege! What wonder!

Do not be anxious over the imagined difficulty! If there is a will, there is a way! Besides, you have inside you the 'R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA' (or the Spirit of YAOH┌SHUA) to help you and give you the desire and ability. He is 'MenachÚm-nu' (our Comforter)!

You don't have to learn all of it, just what will be useful in your prayers, worship and praising. Believe me, it's so-ooo ee-easy!

Remove that mental block put in by the flesh! Do away with it now! Practice makes perfect! Learning Hebrew is not difficult; what is difficult is to decide whether to go for it or not. Once you have decided in its favor, everything becomes easy!

And once we realize that it is Y┴OHU UL's will, nothing can stop us from showing Him how much we love and appreciate His kindness by doing our best to please Him!

'You shall love Y┴OHU UL, your Maker, with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your power and with all your mind! This is the first and greatest (greatest!) commandment.' - Matthew 22:37 Holy Scriptures.

So begin now by calling upon and using our Father's Hebrew original Name and the Messiah's, too. It is the first step. Everything becomes easy onwards! We can do all things through Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA Who empowers us always! Get to know Him now personally, do it now!

Thy will be done, Y┴OHU UL, not our's!

The Father: Y┴OHU UL, the All-Powerful One

The Son: YAOH┌SHUA, the Messiah

The Spirit: R┌KHA-YAOH┌SHUA, the Teacher, the Comforter

These are children's bread. They're easy to learn!

Remember: Continual practice makes perfect! There is none so hard a learner as one who refuses to see the truth. But you are in favor of the truth that sets you free from all deceptions of the enemy.

The translation of the Messiah's unchangeable Name that is most popularly accepted was based on the Greek translation. Most of them are not Greeks so why are they calling on a Greek name? Salvation is from the Jewish people, not from the Greeks!

Besides, the Most Holy Name of our Maker does not, repeat, does not have to change according to the nationalities and languages of man! This typically is a pagan and heathenish custom in their worship of their idols!

Who taught you that the Name of our Maker should be changed from language to language, or from country to country? What is the scriptural basis of that custom, if any? None whatsoever!

Where did you get such teaching? Certainly not from the Tanakh or Hebrew Holy Scriptures! It is of the world! So let us reform and begin calling upon our true and real Maker from now on! AM-N┴M! (That's 'amen' in pure, archaic Hebrew!). It's easy!

'I will change the speech of My returning people to pure Hebrew, that they may worship Y┴OHU UL in unity!' So declared Y┴OHU UL the Holy One of Israel! - Zephaniah 3:9, Tanakh or Hebrew Holy Scriptures.

'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Y┴OHU UL and the Word was UL. He was with Y┴OHU UL in the beginning. Through Him (i.e. Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA) all things were made; without Him, nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of humankind....

'He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him.... The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us!' - John 1:1-14, Holy Scriptures.

Q. What do you mean by the words 'eternal life'?

A. 'This is eternal life: to know you, Y┴OHU UL (the Holy One of Israel), as the only true Creator and Omnipotent One, and the One Whom You have sent - Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y!' - John 17:3, Holy Scriptures.

Q. But isn't it true that the entire Holy Scriptures was written at the inspiration of the 'R┌KHA-Y┴OHU,' therefore inerrant and Y┴OHU-UL-breathed?

A. The originals, YES! Repeat, the originals, YES! But remember, the Holy Scriptures you have with you now are only man-improvised translations of the originals. Be aware too that the people who translated from the originals or other source documents had their own religious inclinations and biases!

You may be surprised but every Bible student knows that translated Bibles or Holy Scriptures are not the ones referred to as 'INSPIRED' and 'Creator-breathed.' These terms refer only to the original manuscripts or autographs. Now you know!

Scripturally speaking, the original is always the BEST! So what to do? Receive now the truth, that really sets you free! We have been told to 'keep on asking, keep on seeking and to keep on knocking that we may be given, that we may find and that the door may be opened to us!

Molkhi˙l YAOH┌SHUA hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y is the Door to the sheepfold! And we have introduced Him to you. Y┴OHU UL Khanyao-ßhm has been so kind and merciful to us to have revealed Himself and His Anointed One - that we may tell everyone about the real truth! It is Y┴OHU UL's best joy to reveal these to little children!

To Y┴OHU UL, we are ever grateful! Thank You, Y┴OHU UL!

Q. Isn't it true that the original pronunciation of the four-letter (tetragramma) Hebrew Name of the Most High in the Hebrew Scriptures had been lost, forgotten, and that nobody really knows nowadays how it is to be pronounced exactly?

A. Rumors say so, yes! But they are just that - rumors and conjectures. Think now and consider these facts. Until now, His people are still called 'YAOH┌DIM' ('Y┴OH┌-dim' - to show the Name of UL) in the Hebrew language, that means Jewish people refer to themselves as 'YAOH┌DIM.' Several of the Jewish people's adopted names today still reflect the Almighty's Revered Name. Examples are: Eliahu, Khanamyahu, Netanyahu, Uziyahu, etc.

Even the names of the prophets in the Tanakh (Hebrew Holy Scriptures) plus other personages and places mentioned therein still always reveal most emphatically His most-glorious Name!

English translations Original Hebrew
 
Isaiah
 
Yaoshua-Y┴OHU
Elijah Uli-Y┴OHU
Zechariah ZocharY┴OHU
Zephaniah Zafna-Y┴OHU
John Y┴OHU-khanam
Matthew Manaim-Y┴OHU
Joshua YAOH┌SHUA

So the truth has been there in the Hebrew Scriptures all along!

All we have to do is to ask and Y┴OHU UL will give us the wisdom and discernment to really know Him, and that is eternal life! So we keep on seeking and we keep on discovering!

Until now, many Jewish people still do know the correct and true pronunciation of the NAME, but they dare not mention it in fear of blaspheming the most-awesome Name there is in the whole universe. This is superstition, because in the whole of the Tanakh or Hebrew Scriptures, the prophets always mentioned the Name of the Almighty in their prophesyings to the people, the historical and poetry sections of the scriptures always mention the Name, so why be afraid?

Let's not attempt to be holier than the true holy ones. And besides, Joel 2:32 clearly says: whoever calls upon the NAME of Y┴OHU UL shall be saved! We'd rather believe and obey what is written in the original Holy Scriptures than traditions of men.

Y┴OHU UL caused it by His 'R┌KHA' (or Spirit) that His Name be written more than 6,000 times in the Tanakh so that we will realize that it is the most important word in its entirety! What is forbidden is the blaspheming of the Name, not the mere mentioning of it, if done with awesome reverence and total respect! Get it? Am-now!

'You shall not misuse the Name of Y┴OHU, your UL, for Y┴OHU UL will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His Name.' - Deuteronomy 5:11, Tanakh or Hebrew Holy Scriptures.

Take note: What is forbidden is the misuse, not the reverential use! Do not add, and do not subtract from what is written in the Holy Scriptures.

This correct way of saying the Name is being kept secret from the Gentiles by those who know it, to avoid it being blasphemed - maybe true, but certainly neither lost nor forgotten, and surely not unknown!

So the correct way of pronouncing the Hebrew Tetragramma is known by many even among the Jewish people, to this day!

'Therefore I (Y┴OHU UL) will reveal My NAME to My people and they shall know the power in that NAME. Then at last they will recognize that it is I, yes, I, Who speaks to them!' - Isaiah 52:6, Tanakh

To avoid the Name being blasphemed, some early sectarian religious leaders of Israel made it the custom of Judaism to use replacements, such as: 'ha-Shem' (the name), 'Adonai' (lord), etc. So what was wrong with that? Where's the catch? 'Lord' means 'baal!' The correct way of saying these in archaic Hebrew are 'hol-Sh˙am' (the Name) and 'Ëdmaor' (Ruler).

The replacements that some of these sectarian groups long ago mistakenly used, to replace the original Names and titles with, were adapted from surrounding pagan, cultic and primitive communities, which then referred to popular idols among them!

Sincere, maybe, but sincerely mistaken! It's not surprising if many truly sincere souls are now languishing in 'sheol' (or hell) for lack of knowledge then. 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge!' - Hosea 4:6, Tanakh or Hebrew Holy Scriptures.

In His foreknowledge, Y┴OHU UL had foreseen that His Name will be blasphemed by some evil men, and that was the reason why He prescribed a severe penalty for anyone blaspheming, mocking or insulting His Most Awesome Name, Y┴OHU UL:

'And whoever blasphemes the Name of Y┴OHU UL shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him, the stranger as well as him who is born in the land. When he blasphemes the Name of Y┴OHU, he shall be put to death!' - Leviticus 24:16, Tanakh.

As far as Y┴OHU UL is concerned, that is enough deterrent for all against committing such a crime. No need to devise substitutions of names to add to what Y┴OHU UL has deemed sufficient.

Presumptuous ways and ideas to help our Most High in administering His Kingdom often lead to confusion. The revealed words of Y┴OHU UL are sufficient to run his government with justice and righteousness! No need for man's innovative alterations! Do not add to nor subtract from what were originally written in the Holy Scriptures, much more alter, erase, delete or rename! You now decide which is truly blasphemous in Y┴OHU UL's sight.

So let us now get back to using His original Name in true solemnity and with utmost reverence!

The mere fact that this tetragramma was written more than 6,000 times in the Hebrew Scriptures or Tanakh implies that the Most High - Y┴OHU UL - has deemed it proper that those who read the Holy Scriptures will always refer to Him by His one and only Name, thereby acknowledging Him as the Person behind the Holy Scriptures or the Book! This is My Name forever by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation - Y┴OHU UL!

Just as the gift without the giver is bare, so are the Holy Scriptures without the Resource Person behind it!

Let's now put back the true Author, Y┴OHU UL, back to where He properly and rightfully belongs in the Tanakh or the Holy Scriptures! Am-nˇw!

Q. Is 'Y┴OHU' an abbreviation of His more complete Name?

A. 'Y┴OHU' is not an abbreviation. 'Y┴OHU' is the Most High's full and only-revealed Name!

When mentioned, it sounds like the pleasant sounds of the gentle breeze or gentle wind, especially the second syllable of the Wonderful Name. Not surprising because He is the Giver of our life or breath or wind! Our Y┴OHU UL is a 'R┌KHA' (or Spirit).

In archaic Hebrew, the word 'rukha' also refers to wind!

It's common nowadays, in formulating names for the citizenry, that this Name is affixed with other descriptive or redemptive titles, that reflect some redeeming or benevolent attributes of the Most High, examples of which are:

  'Y┴OHUkhanam'
  'Yaoshua-Y┴OHU'
  'Manaim-Y┴OHU'
  'Yarmi-Y┴OHU'
  'YAOH┌SHUA'
meaning favor of Y┴OHU
meaning Y┴OHU will save
meaning Y┴OHU is pleasant
meaning Y┴OHU is exalted
meaning Y┴OHU'S power to save
'John'
'Isaiah'
'Matthew'
'Jeremiah'
'Joshua'

Therefore, 'Y┴OHU' is the correct and complete Name of our triune ULH═M, Creator-Head! Not Yahweh.

'Joshua' is not an acceptable translation because it involves the syllable 'josh' which is homonymous with the idolatrous name 'dios' (zeus, jews and deus too).

Q. Does our Creator have many Names? Why do many pray to other names much different from this original Name?

A. Only one revealed Name, but many different titles used solely or in conjunction with this Awesome Name: Y┴OHU! You must know the difference between a 'name' and a 'title.'

Many titles that people use, when referring to the Holy One, are scriptural but there are also unscriptural titles, some are even idolatrous and even blasphemous!

All spirit-beings correspond to and answer to a name, for identification purposes. To particularize their identities. Names are for proper and truthful identifications! To names are added titles which signify several attributes of a person such as position, civil status, profession, character, office, degree, etc. For example, name: Wilbur Jones title: Mister, Architect, Republican, President, State Governor, and so on.

Other common titles are: President, Senator, Congressman, Mayor, Colonel, General, Manager, Princess, Queen, King and so on.

So only one name, but many possible titles. The name is for identification, the titles are for embellishments or decorations or to inform people more about the persons behind those names and titles and what they do or what ranks or seats of authority they occupy.

In the same way, our Maker has only one Name: 'Y┴OHU' but many titles: the Most High, the Holy One of Israel, the Almighty, the Creator, the Commander of the Armies, Maker, the Father and so on.

For His Son, only one Name: 'YAOH┌SHUA.' Titles are: Molkhi˙l (King), hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y (Anointed One) or King of kings, also Prince of Peace, the Bread of Life, Advocate, Savior, Redeemer and so on.

In the Holy Scriptures, we are told to praise, worship, extol, glorify and bless His NAME! It is all right to include any or some of His titles but the NAME must always be properly specified, for proper identification. Remember, the name is for exact, specific and accurate identification! Titles, on the other hand, serve as qualifiers or modifiers.

There are many personages in the Scriptures named 'YAOH┌SHUA.' To whom specifically are you calling to? Whom are you particularly referring to? Which 'YAOH┌SHUA'? To the Messiah or to Moses's assistant? So we use Molkhi˙l and hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y as QUALIFIERS: to particularize the unseen Person we are referring to. Clear enough? Am-nˇw!

'Whoever calls upon the Name of Y┴OHU UL shall be saved!' - Joel 2:32 and Acts 2:21, Tanakh, Holy Scriptures

Note that they were not written: 'whoever calls upon the title or titles of Y┴OHU UL shall be saved.' It says we must call upon His NAME and not upon any of His titles only, if we really want redemption and deliverance, protection and benefits.

All this is given to you in true love and deep humility, 'Ol Sh˙am' (in the Name of) YAOH┌SHUA hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y, and we all say, am-nßm!

YAOH┌SHUA hol-MEHUSHKH┴Y is the original Name!

The original is really the best!
