Proverbs 2 (American Standard Version)

Proverbs 2

 1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;

 2 So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;

 3 Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding;

 4 If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures:

 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.

 6 For Jehovah giveth wisdom; Out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding:

 7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to them that walk in integrity;

Acts 17:11 (King James Version)

 11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Psalm 111:10 (American Standard Version)

 10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all they that do his commandments: His praise endureth for ever.

Proverbs 9:10 (American Standard Version)

 10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 8:13 (American Standard Version)

 13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate.

Jeremiah 17:5 (American Standard Version)

 5 Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah.

6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited.

 

Jeremiah 17 (New Living Translation)

5 This is what the Lord says:
   “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans,
      who rely on human strength
      and turn their hearts away from the Lord.
 
6 They are like stunted shrubs in the desert,
      with no hope for the future.
   They will live in the barren wilderness,
      in an uninhabited salty land.

 

Numbers 23:19 (New Living Translation)


 19 God is not a man, so he does not lie.
      He is not human, so he does not change his mind.
   Has he ever spoken and failed to act?
      Has he ever promised and not carried it through?

Titus 1:2 (King James Version)

 2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

 

Psalm 9:10 (American Standard Version)

 10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

It would be to our advantage, that when we SEEK the only living God Almighty, we KNOW his NAME.

 

Exodus 6:3 (American Standard Version)

 3 and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty; but by my name Jehovah I was not known to them.

 

Exodus 3:15 (American Standard Version)

 15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Jehovah, the 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 forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

“Jehovah” {Heb., YHWH), God’s personal name, first occurs in Ge 2:4. The divine name is a verb, the causative form, the imperfect state, of the Hebrew verb  (ha wah’, “to become”). Therefore, the divine name means “ He Causes to Become.” This reveals Jehovah as the One who, with progressive action, causes himself to become the Fulfiller of promises, the One who always brings his purposes to realization.

 

The greatest indignity that modern translators render to the Divine Author of the Holy Scriptures is the removal or the concealing of his peculiar personal name. Actually his name occurs in the Hebrew text 6,828 times as (YHWH or JHVH), generally referred to as the Tetragrammaton (literally meaning “having four letters”). By using the name “Jehovah,” the Watchtower publishers of New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, have held closely to the original-language texts and have not followed the practice of substituting titles such as “Lord,” “the Lord,” “Adonai” or “God” for the divine name, the Tetragrammaton.

 

 

Christendom is a name given to the entirety of those who claim to be Christians. It can  be said that those within this group worship Jesus Christ, as God.

I hastily add, that there are some who call themselves Christians who ARE DIFFERENT from those within Christendom, one such movement is referred to as Jehovah's Witnesses.

The disunity of those who profess Christianity dates back from the first century C.E. As a matter of FACT the very doctrine of Trinity [not Biblical] came about from the efforts of Roman emperor Constantine's attempt to unite the 'factions' [supported by his 'converted' mother Helena].

 Although there is available today an abundance of  information to show the pagan attributes of  the Trinity doctrine, this article shall use the Bible, the ONLY TRUE AUTHORITY of  TRUE CHRISTIANS to distinguish The Only Living God Almighty [YHWH, translated

JEHOVAH in English] and the One whom God SENT [John 8:42], Jesus the anointed One [Christ] or Messiah.

 

John 8:42 reads: Jesus said to them: "If God were your Father, you would love me , for from

God I came forth and am here. Neither have I come of my own initiative at all, but that

One sent me forth.

 

Firstly, the Tetragrammaton YHWH, which is translated as Yahweh and Jehovah, means; He

Causes To Become.

It should also be noted that God's personal Name represented by YHWH is ALMOST ALWAYS rendered as LORD or GOD in MOST Bible translations {even though it exists nearly 7,000 times in the manuscripts from which Bibles were translated [Hebrew text also called Old Testament by Christendom]} .

Jesus means Jehovah is Salvation, as does, Isaiah.

 

The Wikipedia states:

 

The editors of the Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon <http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-7/264290/BDBYahwehtrimmed.jpg> state that YHWH occurs 6518 times in the Masoretic Text <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masoretic_Text>. While YHWH occurs 6518 times in the Masoretic Text that underlies all editions of the King James Bible, JEHOVAH [in all capitals letters] only occurs 4 times in current editions of the King James Bible <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Bible>: Exodus 6:3 and Psalm 83:18 and Isaiah 12:2 and Isaiah 26:4 (and three more times in place-names). (The King James Bible which is commonly sold in bookstores is an 18th century spelling and punctuation revision of the King James Bible of 1611) Instead of YHWH or Jehovah, the expression "The Lord" (with the word "Lord" in all capital letters) has commonly been used in most English-language Bible translations.

 

 

Why Jesus is NOT JEHOVAH?

 

1. By his own admission. John 5:19, 30; John 7:17, John 8:42, John 12:49, John 14:28,

John 20:17, Matthew 24:36, Matthew 4:10, Matthew 7:21 etc.

 

2. Psalm 110:1 and 4 compared with Hebrews 6:20, 8:1, 2, 4:15, Matthew 22:41- 46.

These Scriptures show that Jesus Christ is High Priest to God. God CANNOT be

High Priest to himself can he?

 

3. Deuteronomy 18:18, 19 compared with  John 1:19-21, 25-27; 6:14; 7:40;  Acts 3:19-26

 Jehovah God mentioned a Prophet that was to come similar to Moses [would liberate the people from any entanglement so they can pursue true worship of God]. This Prophet was to SPEAK only TRUTH from God himself. John 12:49, John 8:42; John 18:37, Matthew 21:9 - 11.

 

4. When Jesus Christ was tempted by the Devil [slanderer] to do an act of worship to him, Satan [resister], Jesus directed Satan to God's Word [Bible] saying this privilege was

God's ONLY.

Matthew 4:10, compare with Deuteronomy 6:13- 15.

 

5. At Matthew 27: 46 we read: And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" NKJV.

Who was this God? Yes, my friends, Jesus was speaking to Almighty God, Jehovah.

Compare Psalm 22:1.

 

6. There are various references of the God and Father of Jesus Christ. Please read; 1 Peter 1:3, Romans 15:6, 2 Corinthians 1:3, Ephesians 1:3, John 20:17, Revelation 1:6, 3:12, 2 Corinthians 11:31.

NOTE PLEASE that EVEN when Jesus is glorified and in heaven he refers to his God [Revelation 3:12].  N.B. God Almighty JEHOVAH, is THE MOST HIGH

[Psalm 83:18]

he CANNOT BE ELEVATED ANY HIGHER SINCE HE IS AND HAS

ALWAYS BEEN THE MOST HIGH. [Re 4:8 - 11; Hebrews 12:18 - 29 compared with Philippians 2:5 - 11.

 

7. Jesus is identified as taking the scroll from the hand of the One seated on the throne in  the heavens [that is from God's hand]. Revelation 5: 7.

 

8. Jesus is compared to an angel of God, at Galatians 4:14. This is supported by Proverbs 8:22-31, Hebrews 1: 5; Hebrews 8: 1, 2; Philippians 2: 5- 11; Revelation 3:14; 1 Thess. 4: 16. Col. 1:15, John 3:13, Daniel 7: 13, 14, Micah 5: 2.

 

9. Almighty God is from everlasting to everlasting [Psalm 90:2, Revelation 4:10,11], He

CANNOT DIE, Jesus had to die for redemption to be a reality [John 3:16, etc.]

Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

Jude 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Jude 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

Jude 1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Jude 1:18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

Jude 1:19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

Jude 1:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Jude 1:21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

Jude 1:23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

Jude 1:25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
