Our Saviours’ proper name!

Updated on December 22, 2016


Our Saviours’ proper name is NOT Jesus but Yahushua.

Our Saviours’ proper name is not “Jesus” but "Yahushua"

The closest Greek name, if one wants to use it, is ”IESU”/”IESOUS”, (Strongs #2424) properly pronounced “ee-ay-sooce” (emphasis on the ee, not the ce), as in “EASU”.

The closest Latin name, for Yahushua, “IESV” (from which the English word came), is enunciated as “YASU” in German, Japanese, Chinese and many other languages.

Yahushua wasn’t Greek; He was Hebrew; so why on earth would we want to call Him by any other or different name than His Hebrew name Yahushua? When your name is “John”, will you be called “Bill” in Japan, “Frank” in South Africa – no, it will stay “John”.

From what I have been able to put together, there is no “sh” sound in Greek, so the original “sh” sound in the Hebrew / English; Yahushua could not be properly translated into Greek no matter how they tried.

To get the word Yahushua to even begin to sound like grammatical Greek, they had to add the “s” sound to the end of the name.

Therefore the Hebrew Yahushua ended up mistranslated to the English Yahushua to Jesus.

Why do Messianic Jews use the name "Yahushua rather than “Jesus"?

Well, first and foremost it is because Yahashua is His given Hebrew name. "Yahushua is the hellenized-anglicized form of "Yeshua", which means "Salvation".

Yahushua never heard the name Jesus in His lifetime. Think about that for a moment; our precious Messiah was never once called Jesus, and yet millions of Christians insist on calling Him this strange name. A Name that did not even existed 300 years ago!

When He walked the face of this earth He was always called "Yahushua". This is similar to "Joshua / Yoshua", a common Hebrew name at that time.

Whether people like it or not; “Yeshua”, the name most Believers use for the “Son of (God) YHVH,” was a Jew, His proper name is “YAHUSHUA”, (Strongs #3444), which in Hebrew means (salvation, or YAH (God the Father) saves), or “Yahushua Hamashiach” - meaning "Yahushua the Messiah”.

If the name of Jesus is the true name for our savior, it must be like the name "YAH" (God the Father) eternal.

For a name to be eternal, it must be without beginning and end like God but the name "Jesus" had a beginning while the name Yahushua contain the name of God the Father "YAH" - Ushue - "Saves" it has no beginning and no end.

The name of Jesus did not appear in the original scrolls, so how could it be the Name above all Names. The name Jesus had a obvious beginning when the new kings James bible was translated from Yahushua to Jesus?

Some say that the word “Jesus” In fact could be considered the English translation of the “sun god” deity known as “Zeus” or “Je-Zeus”, “Gee-Zeus”.

Shocking Discovery!

So why do Yeshua respond to the name “Jesus” if it is not his real name?

Well I believe that Yeshua is a loving and mercifully God and He knew that we all would have been fooled by Satan trough the ages, with this error of the Bible translations, so He responds to your hearts cry, trough His perfect love.

God's names and attributes

It is essential to know God, His names and His attributes, because if we worship Him we must worship Him in Spirit and truth, for what and who God is.

Only God can reveal what He is like in one sense, in the Second Commandment God tells mankind: “Don’t try to tell Me what "I Am" like. I will tell you what "I Am" like!

It is important that you correctly understand that I will accept no representations of Me.”

If we worship something that is not in God’s names or character or one of His attributes, we are creating and worshipping our own god. That is called idolatry and is totally against the Word of God.

  • God is Spirit and He is the truth.
  • God is the beginning and the end (“Alpha and Omega”).
  • He is Mighty and strong (“El Elohim”, God Almighty).
  • He is God all – seeing (“El Roi”, to see or to provide).
  • He is a consuming fire (“Yahweh Qanna”) and a jealous God.
  • He is the Holy One (“Qadosh”, to be pure and clean).
  • Before creation there was no King. God created Himself a Spiritual Kingdom to rule over and He became the First King, the perfect King or Lord (“Adonai”, to rule or to be sovereign).
  • He is the Ruler of the seen (The physical) as well as well as the unseen World (The spiritual). God is King of all Kings.
  • Jesus is also described as King of Kings and the Lord of Lords in Revelation 19:16.
  • The greek word for “king” is basileus from the root word basis – and it is translated as “foot” (where all the power and rule of a king originates).
  • He is also our Provider in all our needs (“Yahweh Jireh”, to see, to foresee or to provide).
  • He is also our healer (“Yahweh Rapha”, to mend or to cure).
  • He is the Lord our Shepherd (“Yahweh Rohi”, to pasture a flock or to rule).
  • He also reveals Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
  • God shows us His great love by saying that He is our “Abba Father”.
  • He also shows us His love by giving mankind His greatest gift, Yeshua, the Saviour of the world. (“Yahweh Yasha Ga’al”), the Lord our Saviour and Redeemer).
  • God showed also His mercy to mankind in love, by giving mankind His only Son, a Saviour. He would be called Prince of peace (“Yahweh Shalom”, to make safe, well, healthy, happy, and prosperous). God also revealed Himself as God, All – sufficient, God Invincible (“El Shaddai”, to be robust or powerful) and (“El Nasa”, to lift or release – God Forgiving).

These names of God are to help you see the true God, there are many more names and titles of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit. I have touched on but a few.

We need to realise that God Is love and we need to know His attributes (qualities).

The “absolute” (attribute) characteristics or qualities of God.

  • He is a personal loving God and He is invisible, and immortal (God can not die).
  • God is not limited by any resources;
  • God is the highest authority that there is (has sovereignty),
  • God is not limited by time, He is outside of time (eternal),
  • He can not be moved by changing circumstances (immutable).
  • He is God united in three (“el-o-heem”); Father, Son and Holy Spirit, they are equal in every sense but have different functions.
  • He revealed Himself to mankind in three Persons, but as One God (“YHWH”)

God’s “active” (attribute) characteristics or qualities.

  • God is absolute; all powerful (Omnipotent),
  • God is absolute; all knowing (Omniscient),
  • God is absolute; all present (Omnipresent).

God’s “Moral” (attribute) characteristics or qualities.

  • God is different from us in that He is absolute in Holiness,
  • Love,
  • Truthfulness,
  • Faithfulness,
  • Righteousness,
  • Mercy,
  • Grace,
  • Goodness,
  • Kindness
  • Longsuffering (Ephesians 5:22).
  • He loves us,
  • He is honest with us,
  • we can trust Him,
  • He deals rightly with us,
  • He feels compassion for our miseries,
  • He made provision for our needs,
  • He desires for our welfare,
  • He shows concern for us
  • He is patient with us.

God (Yahweh) is a supreme being that is perfect in all His being and in all things (the upholder of all). He is ruler over the seen as well as over the unseen kingdoms.

Psalm 83:18: May they know that you alone are the LORD, supreme ruler over all the earth. (GNB) (JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth. (NKJ))

      I believe that His true name will be restored with all the false altars, restored. God said that He will restore the true bride in all truth in the last days. His name will be Yeshua again forever, when the lie has been exposed.

      Emmánuel, dit is, as dit vertaal word: God met ons.

      Han 17:30 God het dan die tye van onkunde oorgesien en verkondig nou aan al die mense oral dat hulle hul moet bekeer,

      Han 14:16 Hy het in die tye wat verby is, toegelaat dat al die nasies in hulle eie weë sou wandel,

      Psa 50:21 Hierdie dinge het jy gedoen, en sou Ek swyg? Jy dink Ek is net soos jy! Ek gaan jou straf en jou dit ordelik voor oë stel.

      Rom 1:28 En omdat hulle dit nie die moeite werd geag het om God in erkentenis te hou nie, het God hulle oorgegee aan ‘n slegte gesindheid, om te doen wat nie betaam nie:

      Rom 3:23 want almal het gesondig en dit ontbreek hulle aan die heerlikheid van God,

      Rom 3:25 Hom het God voorgestel in sy bloed as ‘n versoening deur die geloof, om sy geregtigheid te bewys deurdat Hy die sondes ongestraf laat bly het wat tevore gedoen is onder die verdraagsaamheid van God

      Han 3:19 Kom dan tot inkeer en bekeer julle, sodat julle sondes uitgewis kan word en tye van verkwikking van die aangesig van die Here mag kom,

      Han 11:18 En toe hulle dit hoor, het hulle geswyg en God verheerlik en gesê: So het God dan ook aan die heidene die bekering tot die lewe geskenk.

      Han 20:21 terwyl ek kragtig by die Jode sowel as die Grieke aangedring het op die bekering tot God en die geloof in onse Here Jesus Christus.

      Han 26:17 terwyl Ek jou verlos uit die volk en die heidene na wie Ek jou nou stuur,

      Han 26:18 om hulle oë te open, dat hulle hul van die duisternis tot die lig kan bekeer en van die mag van die Satan tot God, sodat hulle deur die geloof in My vergifnis van sondes en ‘n erfdeel onder die geheiligdes kan ontvang.

      Han 26:19 Daarom, koning Agríppa, was ek aan die hemelse gesig nie ongehoorsaam nie,

      Han 26:20 maar ek het eers aan die mense in Damaskus en in Jerusalem en in die hele land van Judéa en aan die heidene verkondig dat hulle tot inkeer moet kom en hulle tot God bekeer deur werke te doen wat by die bekering pas.

      Mat 3:2 gepreek en gesê: Bekeer julle, want die koninkryk van die hemele het naby gekom.

      Mat 4:17 Van toe af het Jesus begin om te preek en te sê: Bekeer julle, want die koninkryk van die hemele het naby gekom.

      Mar 6:12 En hulle het uitgegaan en gepreek dat die mense hulle moes bekeer.

      Luk 13:5 Nee, sê Ek vir julle; maar as julle jul nie bekeer nie, sal julle almal net so omkom.

      Luk 15:10 So, sê Ek vir julle, is daar blydskap voor die engele van God oor een sondaar wat hom bekeer.

      Luk 24:47 en bekering en vergewing van sondes in sy Naam verkondig word aan al die nasies, van Jerusalem af en verder.

      Rom 2:4 Of verag jy die rykdom van sy goedertierenheid en verdraagsaamheid en lankmoedigheid, omdat jy nie besef dat die goedertierenheid van God jou tot bekering wil lei nie?

      2Kor 7:10 Want die droefheid volgens die wil van God werk ‘n onberoulike bekering tot redding, maar die droefheid van die wêreld werk die dood.

      Efe 4:17 Dit sê en betuig ek dan in die Here, dat julle nie meer moet wandel soos die ander heidene ook wandel in die verdwaasdheid van hulle gemoed nie—

      Efe 4:18 mense wat verduisterd is in die verstand en vervreemd van die lewe van God deur die onkunde wat in hulle is vanweë die verharding van hulle hart;

      Efe 4:19 wat ongevoelig geword het en hulle oorgegee het aan die ongebondenheid om in hebsug allerhande onreinheid te bedrywe.

      Efe 4:20 Maar julle het Christus nie so leer ken nie,

      Efe 4:21 as julle ten minste van Hom gehoor het en in Hom onderrig is soos die waarheid is in Jesus:

      Efe 4:22 dat julle, wat die vorige lewenswandel betref die oue mens moet aflê wat deur die begeerlikhede van die verleiding te gronde gaan,

      Efe 4:23 en dat julle vernuwe moet word in die gees van julle gemoed

      Efe 4:24 en julle met die nuwe mens moet beklee wat na God geskape is in ware geregtigheid en heiligheid.

      Efe 4:25 Daarom, lê die leuen af en spreek die waarheid, elkeen met sy naaste, want ons is mekaar se lede.

      Efe 4:26 Word toornig en moenie sondig nie; laat die son nie ondergaan oor julle toorn nie;

      Efe 4:27 en gee aan die duiwel geen plek nie.

      Efe 4:28 Laat die een wat steel, nie meer steel nie; maar laat hom liewer arbei deur met sy hande te werk wat goed is, sodat hy iets kan hê om mee te deel aan die een wat gebrek het.

      Efe 4:29 Laat daar geen vuil woord uit julle mond uitgaan nie, maar net ‘n woord wat goed is vir die nodige stigting, sodat dit genade kan gee aan die wat dit hoor.

      Efe 4:30 En bedroef nie die Heilige Gees van God nie, deur wie julle verseël is tot die dag van verlossing.

      Efe 4:31 Alle bitterheid en woede en toorn en geskreeu en lastering moet van julle verwyder word, saam met alle boosheid.

      Efe 4:32 Maar wees vriendelik en vol ontferming teenoor mekaar; vergeef mekaar soos God ook in Christus julle vergewe het.

      Efe 5:6 Laat niemand julle met ydel woorde verlei nie, want daardeur kom die toorn van God oor die kinders van die ongehoorsaamheid.

      Efe 5:7 Wees dan nie hulle deelgenote nie.

      Efe 5:8 Want vroeër was julle duisternis, maar nou is julle lig in die Here—wandel soos kinders van die lig.

      Tit 2:11 Want die reddende genade van God het aan alle mense verskyn

      Tit 2:12 en leer ons om die goddeloosheid en wêreldse begeerlikhede te verloën, ingetoë en regverdig en vroom in die teenwoordige wêreld te lewe,

      1Pet 1:14 Soos gehoorsame kinders moet julle nie jul lewe inrig volgens die begeerlikhede wat tevore in julle onwetendheid bestaan het nie.

      1Pet 1:15 Maar soos Hy wat julle geroep het, heilig is, moet julle ook in jul hele lewenswandel heilig word,

      1Pet 4:3 Want dit is genoeg dat ons die afgelope lewenstyd die wil van die heidene volbring het deur te wandel in ongebondenheid, begeerlikheid, dronkenskap, brasserye, drinkpartye en ongeoorloofde afgoderye.


      Bybel Waarheid

      Van Hendrik van den Berg


    • louisxfourie profile image

      Louis Fourie 7 years ago from Johannesburg, South Africa

      From Daniel and other sources, the contextual and historical meaning of the “abomination of desolation” is the desecration of the Temple when Antiochus erected a statue of Zeus inside the temple and sacrificed a pig on the altar on December 25, 167 B. C. in honor of the birth of the Sun god.

      This single act of desolation so incited the Jews that it began a revolt which ended in Jewish independence for the first time since 586 B. C. This end of foreign rule has been celebrated as the important Jewish festival of Hanukkah, meaning “dedication” (of the sanctuary) from 164 B. C. until today. - Source, Exploring the Book of Daniel: An Expository Commentary By John Phillips - P.256, Grand Rapids, MI : Kregel Publications, ©2004., - Prophecy Forum / Antiochus

      After 169 BC, he encouraged his people to worship him as the Greek god Zeus, taking the title “Theos Epiphanes”, meaning “the manifest God”, believing that he was an incarnation of Zeus. His enemies called him “Epimanes”, meaning “mad-man”, a change which only required altering a single letter in the Greek.

      Later in his reign, Antiochus IV became the first king to issue coins on which he proclaimed himself to be a god. He was portrayed as Zeus enthroned with the inscription, “King Antiochus. God Manifest, Bearing Victory”. - Antiochus Ephiphanes

      Apollo is literally the son of Zeus. (The "bá' ál shámáyîm" that the phrase "shíqqûç shômem" literally refers to)

      Lamb is replaced with Ham. Passover (called the Blood and flesh of Christ) is replaced with a golden cup in Rome and a wafer with the actual charagma of Baal on it, straight from the "Temple Of The Sun" in ancient Babylon as if lifted from a modern archeological photo?

      What I will do with this truth is to call Him Yeshua....This hub is totally awesome. Voted up, beautiful, awesome, and useful. I have known about some of His Holy Names. but this work of yours has truly opened my eyes to the many names He does have.

      I am wondering why even tho explained above somewhat, even in the New Testament, He is referred to as this due as I think I understand, the mis translation of His Name....Certainly we should call Him by his proper name.

      Interestingly enough, I have a copy of the Lords Prayer, which is sung in Aramaic .... the person singing states that this is the true language Yeshua spoke....what say you louisfourie?

      Many blessings to you and may God keep you and your family safe from harm....

      I repent. You are right. I wouldn't want to be called by any other name than my own. Too bad they won't change the different translations to reflect this truth. It hit me when you said He was never called Jesus when He walked the Earth. If others refer to Him as Jesus, I will be graceful. But when speaking myself, I will use His real name. Thank you so much for this!
