Why It's Written "In the Name 'Of' Jesus"
Educated Guesses Based On History And Bible
A Biblical prophecy (Exo. 4:6-8) suggests the person called Jesus was a man of color turned leprous as snow or “diseased” by changing his color and teachings an ethnic change. Understand the Bible, especially the Old Testament, is a book of Metaphors, Allegories, Parables and Symbol-types I call MAPS that are types of the New Testament and end-time events. Interpreting them sheds light on the Bible’s meaning. We must understand everything done is being done by god as Isaiah 45:7’s “I form light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the lord do [present tense] all these things” indicates.
By understanding hunters, as Esau was, are outdoorsman and the sun darkens them while “tent dwellers,” as was Jacob, would loose color from getting no sun’s struggling in the womb symbolizes black and white man always have had dissension between them. A glimpse of it was shown (Gen. 12:11-13) when Abram believed his life would be endangered because his wife, Sarai, was fair as they approached Khemet now called Egypt. Understanding that development makes clear the dissension between those two “ethnic magnifiers” has always been.
The Bible doesn’t describe Leah nor Rachel’s skin colors but, based on the foregoing, the probability is the two girls did not have the same mother. The word “Laban” means “light” yet Leah’s mother may not have been. Jacob symbolizes Europeans and most of his children were by Leah and servants may suggest all had the stronger African heritage genes meaning eleven of his children were of color making only Joseph and Benjamin to be fair skinned. With the probability that all of Jacob’s children except Rachel’s were of color is the reason their hatred of Joseph caused them to sell him into Egypt.
Since to this day there is dissension between “blacks” and “whites” and the man called Jesus was foretold to be a “rod” of the stem of Jesse (Isa. 11:1), who was of Judah and not Rachel’s son, Jesus was a man of color. However, after his ascension and as the gospel was spread abroad his color became leprous by teaching him as white. About a hundred years after Jesus’ ascension and teaching he was white Constantine made Christianity Rome’s religion and required them to keep him fair skinned. Thus, the biblical person of Jesus remains diseased as snow today.
Constantine’s knowing fair skinned Romans would not accept a dark skinned man as their Christ they would need to change the name protecting it against his color being made known by the Hebrews called Jews, a people mostly of color who knew their history, otherwise making him fair skinned and his Hebrew name being preached by the Catholic Church would cause questions that changing it would elevate.
How the name was chosen I know not but Janus is the name of a Roman god and Zeus the name of a Greek god so they may have made the name by merging the two, it may have always been a Spanish name Rome profaned the pronunciation of or Rome may have given it to Spain as a deception but what we do know is it isn’t found anywhere in the Hebrew language and mentioned only a few times in history.
Finding The Names “Of” Jesus
Throughout the New Testament we find written “in the name of Jesus” and “in Jesus’ name” but in no place do we find “in the name Jesus.” In the English language the word “of” connotes “belonging to” whereas when left out it revealing that it is. So if Jesus is the name, as Christians often say, why isn’t it written “in the name Jesus” reflecting it is his name?
When looking at Jesus’ words in the Gospels he says both “I the son of man” (Mat. 16:13-16) and other times only “the son of man” (Mat. 12:39-40 & 17:11-12) with the latter said as if he may be referring to someone other than himself. What was said in Matthew 16 intended to ensure there was no misunderstanding he was talking about himself while the other two appears to be intentionally deceptive, because it was about him and someone else. The following is why.
According to Matthew 27:45-28:1 Jesus died somewhere around “the ninth hour” Friday (3 pm today) and was out of the earth by “dawn” Sunday: Matthew 12:40 reads “for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” That makes the day and time of entering the ground (pre-sunset Friday) and time of his resurrection (dawn Sunday) to be an error since from Friday night until pre-dawn Sunday is two nights and one day. As for Matthew 17:11-12, it appears he didn’t want people to know Elijah is to be the second messiah, especially since Revelation 19:12C reads, “…he had a name written that no man knew but he himself” suggesting it was intended as a deception (Isa. 45:7). Those examples show “in the name of Jesus” is written as a pseudonym for the “rod” and “branch” messiahs (Isa. 11:1).
Now let us now look at an Old Testament types to see if we can discover the crucified messiah’s name.
Israel’s entering Canaan is a prophetic type of everyone entering the spiritual promise. Moses brought them out of bondage (today’s enslavement is to money and stuff), across the red sea and to Canaan’s border but did not enter (Deu. 32:52), it will be the same with the prophet like him (Deut. 18:15 & 18), Elijah. Elijah is the landowner (Mat. 20:1-16) in "the paymaster parable" who seeks workers during the last days and, as the prophet like Moses, he protects them from the red sea of blood during the world ending battle (Rev. 16:14) by gathering the five wise virgins (Mat. 25:1-12) in Armageddon (Rev. 16:15-16) and leading them into the wilderness (the millenniums) afterwards. They first give birth to the “five foolish virgins” (Rev. 6:9-11) from the last material world’s end who are replaced by “the five” of this one (Rev. 14:13), then they gives birth to the rest of the dead (Rev. 20:5) represented by those discarnated during Israel’s 40 year wilderness stay (Num. 14:1-33 & Rev. 19:21) to replenish the earth for the spiritual civilization Canaan symbolizes.
God appointed Old Testament Yoshua to take Israel into Canaan and Yoshua, called Jesus, is to take spiritual Israel into their promise but, according to John 14:3-4 he scouts it after revealing man do not enter it discarnated, they must have a body functioning like ghosts [read all post resurrection stories in the gospels] to enter. He, Yoshua, is also the paymaster paying spiritual Israel with the rapture, beginning with the last one “spiritually born” [during either civilization’s end] and works his way to Elijah, the Alpha and Omega (Rev. 1:17) or first saved and last one left after the six millenniums of rejuvenating this earth to look like “a new heaven and new earth” where man don’t have fleshly feeling (Rev. 21:1-4 & 23) and there is no sun.
Another reason his name would have been Yoshua is because Matthew 28:19 reads in part “go ye … baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost.” That makes the son’s and Holy Ghost’s names having to reflect the father’s. The definition of father’s name, Yahveh, as Exodus 3:14 provides means I AM THAT I AM: the “yo” in Yoshua is an abbreviation of Yohuveh and makes it reflect the father’s. The “jah” or “yo” in Elijah, who we now know shall become the Holy Ghost (a whole man doing what ghosts do after his resurrection), means I AM THAT I AM also reflecting the father’s name. Therefore two messiahs are necessary to fulfill the prophecies. The “go ye” in Matthew 28:19 suggests Jesus had been a wanderer prior to becoming the messenger to historical Israel and Elijah will prior to his becoming the messenger to “Judah” of prophecy (Gen. 49:1 & 8-12), so when Jesus said “follow me,” as Exodus 4:8 and Matthew 17:5’s “hear ye him” suggests, both messiahs’ examples are to be followed to enter the promise.
By knowing words’ definitions and the Bible is a book of MAPS its revelation is obtainable, without words definitions we can only preach the words without a vision of their meanings. Therefore, as presented, the purpose for the Bible’s reading “in the name of Jesus” is because it’s a pseudonym for the two different messiahs, Exodus 4:6-8’s first and latter signs. So we must look for Elijah the messiah, since Yoshua was diseased, learn how he lived (Rev. 12:5-6) and prepare to follow his example so we may enter the promise called “heaven” and “everlasting life” (Isa. 7:14-22). However, until he enters his temple (Mal. 3:1B) few if any man except he himself (Rev. 19:12) will know who he is.
