Yehowah and Yehowshuwa, the True Bible Names in Hebrew
I have found some biblical truths that do not seem to be known by anyone I have met so far.
It all started when I found a book at the laundromat. The book claimed that the Roman Catholic Pope was the 'beast' spoken of Revelation. I've wanted to know who the 'beast' was since high school, so this interested me, and prompted me to read the bible for myself to see if it was so.
Now after reading the bible, I became convinced that this was true, that the Pope was the 'beast'. Then a few years later I became acquainted with some church people, the 7th day Adventist's, it was their organization who put out that book which I read, it was called 'National Sunday Law'. After talking to them, I found out that they, the 7th day Adventist, actually believed that Jesus Christ was God, the Creator.
Now this struck me as being contrary to what I understood from having had read the bible. I believed that the Father was the Creator and that his Son had brought us this message. After discussing this with the church members, I found out that they believe in a Trinity. They claim that God consists of three persons. That sounded strange to me.
Who is the Creator
So having heard, that they believed Jesus is God and Creator, I felt that I needed to do some more study in the bible to find out who really was the Creator.
Looking in the Old Testament, I found it states that the LORD is the creator. If you read the fourth commandment in Exodus 20:11 it states:
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
So who is the LORD? Looking in my Strong's Concordance #3068 it states that the word LORD means Yehovah, now on examining the Hebrew writing I found that this should really read as Yehowah. In biblical times the Waw was always pronounced as a "W" as in west. It is in this modern times that they pronounce it as a "V". Therefore Exodus 20:11 should be read as the following:
For in six days YEHOWAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YEHOWAH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
So that means that Yehowah is the Creator. His name is mentioned in the Old Testament over six thousand times, but hidden by the name LORD. See video below.
Now this made me wonder where the name Jesus came from. Looking in the Strong's concordance, I found that the name Jesus comes from the Greek name Iesous, which is an incorrect transliteration of the Hebrew name Yehowshuwa. So that means that the Father's name is Yehowah, and his son's name is Yehowshuwa in the original tongue, or language.
So why the change? The bible states that not one jot or iota is to be changed. So why have they changed the most important part, the names?
How to Pronounce Yehowah
I would like to point out that the Catholics have been taught from the Catechism which have had the commandments altered, they have taken out the second commandment which states not to bow down to idols, and split the last one in two. They also changed some wording, especially about the sabbath. So unless a Catholic person reads the scriptures themselves, they are led to believe that Sunday is the day of rest and that it is okay to bow down and kiss an idol.
The following is a comparison to what is written in the bible, and what the average catholic has been taught and learnt from the catechism
Bible Exodus 20:2-17
1: I YEHOWAH thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
1. I am the LORD your God: you shall not have strange Gods before me.
2: Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness that in heaven above, or that in the earth beneath, or that in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YEHOWAH thy God a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
3: Thou shalt not take the name of YEHOWAH thy God in vain; for YEHOWAH will not hold him
2. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
4: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day the sabbath of YEHOWAH thy God: thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that within thy gates: For six days YEHOWAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them , and rested the seventh day: wherefore YEHOWAH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
3. Remember to keep holy the LORD'S Day.
5: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which YEHOWAH thy God giveth thee.
4. Honor your father and your mother.
6: Thou shalt not kill.
5. You shall not kill.
7: Thou shalt not commit adultery.
6. You shall not commit adultery.
8: Thou shalt not steal.
7. You shall not steal.
9: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that thy neighbour's.
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.
Now getting back to why they have changed the names is, because Lucifer wants to exalt his throne above the stars of God, saying in Isaiah 14:14
"I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high."
So the reason is to deceive the people, into believing that he is God, the most high.
Revelation 12:12 ... Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Rev.13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast,...
As stated earlier the 'beast' I believed is the Pope. Now who does the Pope represent? It is Jesus Christ!
And the dragon gave power to the beast, so the dragon (Lucifer), is Jesus Christ. That is who the Pope/beast gets his power from.
We not only have the wrong names, there is also one title that does not belong in the bible. John 5:43:
I (Yehowshuwa) am come in my Father's name (Yehowah), and ye receive me not: if another (Jesus) shall come in his own name, (The Christ) him ye will receive.
It is Written
I know this may sound shocking to many, but keep in mind that Satan wants the worship due only to the Almighty Yehowah. (We don't want to worship Satan). Now when Satan tempted Yehowshuwa, the son of the Almighty, See Matthew, and Luke.
Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Yehowshuwa unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship Yehowah thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Luke 4:6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Yehowshuwa answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship Yehowah thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
So this is the reason for the name change from Yehowah to LORD, it is to deceive all the people. The bible clearly states that we are to worship Yehowah and him alone.
There are some people who say that that there is no way to transliterate the name Yehowshuwa into Greek. And that Iesous Iησουϛ is the best. But if you look at the other names that have Yehowah's name in it like Yehowshaphat and Yehowseph you will see that in the Greek Septuagint, their transliteration for those names have the first three lettters as Iota, Omega and Sigma, ιωσ. But when they came to the name Yehowshuwa they changed the second letter Omega to an Eta, and added the letters oun or ous instead of ua. See below
When it came to the Creator's name Yehowah in the Greek script, some of the translations had the Hebrew letters of YHWH even though the rest of the script is written in Greek. Later on they replaced it with the Greek word Kurios. But looking at the Greek way of spelling names with Yehowah's name in it. We can surmise that the Greek way of spelling the Creators name Yeh-ow-ah is ιωα (Iota, Omega, Alpha)
The following is from Strong's Concordance
ιωσαφατ (Iota, Omega, Sigma, Alpha. Phi, Alpha, Tau)
Yeh - ow - s - a - ph - a - t
ιωσηφ (Iota, Omega, Sigma, Eta, Phi)
Yeh - ow - s - e - ph
ιωσαβεθ (Iota, Omega, Sigma, Alpha, Beta, Alpha, Theta)
Yeh - ow - s - a - b - a - th
Using the above method of transliterating a name, the following transliteration for the name Yehowshuwa is as follows
ιωσυα (Iota, Omega, Sigma, Upsilon, Alpha)
Yeh - ow - s - hu - a
But the Septuagint falsely transliterates Yehowshuwa to ιησουν, Iesoun (Iota, Eta, sigma, omicron, upsilon, Nu) see Numbers 13:16 (Jehoshua) It is also inaccurately transliterated as Iησουϛ (Iesous)
Name of Yehowah
The bible states in many places the importance of the Almighty's great name example:
Psalms 111:10 The fear of Yehowah is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do : his praise endureth for ever.
Psalms 135:13 Thy name, O Yehowah, for ever; thy memorial, O Yehowah, throughout all generations.
Psalms 148:5 Let them praise the name of Yehowah: for he commanded, and they were created.
Isaiah 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise Yehowah, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
The name Yehowshuwa means 'Yehowah's loud cry to freedom'. Yehowshuwa came in his Father Yehowah's name. For more details see Yehowshuwa the true Hebrew name of the Messiah
Satan wants the worship of every one, that is the reason for the name changes. The title, "the Christ", stands for Satan in the occult, this is Satan's official title. The word Christ should not be in the Bible.
The New World Order is known in the esoteric realms as "The kingdom of the Christ" see Sun Worship in Christianity
If the names are important, then the title Messiah must be important also. And should be Messiah, not the title Christ.
The two following texts clearly show that they were waiting for the messiah and
that they had the word Messias in Greek, so there was no need to change it to the word Christ
John 1:41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. KJV
John 4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. KJV.
The Greek word Messias comes from the Hebrew 'Mashiach'
Strong: #H4899 Orig: from 4886; anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); specifically, the Messiah:--anointed, Messiah. #H4886 Use: TWOT-1255c Noun Masculine GR Strong: #G3323 1) anointed, anointed one 1a) of the Messiah, Messianic prince 1b) of the king of Israel 1c) of the high priest of Israel 1d) of Cyrus 1e) of the patriarchs as anointed kings
This shows that the interpreters/translators, subtly changed it from the title Messias to the false title the 'Christ' in the KJV.
We have 2 billion people that call themselves Christian, it is clearly a wrong name to be called. If one reads the bible we find a verse that tells us what Yehowshuwa was called.
Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.
John 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Yehowshuwa of Nazareth, the son of Yehowsheph.
So not only have they changed the name of Yehowshuwa, they have also changed his title.
Now, we have 2 billion people worshiping the Son instead of the Father, and using the wrong name, and the wrong title. And also worshiping a three person Trinity? Here is a strong warning given in the bible.
Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
This is a strong warning, Satan has power over all kindreds, nations and tongues.
Gawd the Babylonian Deity of Fortune
While we are on the topic of the use of wrong names, there is a problem with the name God, while looking in the concordance I found the name Gad (pronounced as gawd), and that it stands for the Babylonian deity of Fortune. So no wonder the quote "In God We Trust" on American money. It really means 'in the deity of Fortune they trust.'
We have used the word God at first to avoid confusion. But we will be avoiding it's use as much as possible in the future, replacing it with the word Almighty.
Exodus 23:13 And in all that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods (elowah), neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
We have inserted the word elowah, because that is the original Hebrew word. The translators are the ones who have put in the word God. Our language uses a lot of words, that are really the names of pagan deities. i.e. the days of the week, and the months of the year,etc.
I hope this is not confusing, I will be trying to keep things as clear as possible as we go. There are other names also that are not translated or transliterated correctly, one such name is Judah. The name was meant to praise Yehowah and therefore it would be more appropriate to transliterate it as Yehowdeh. For information on that name see Judaism: Are the Jews Really Called by his Name?
The next topic I will be dealing with will be about the trinity, that I mentioned in the first part.
Now that we have taken a look at the names, and their changes, let's take a look at the Trinity, doctrine. Here we have from the Catholic Catechism:
Paragraph #234 'The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the “hierarchy of the truths of faith".
On page 11 of the book, 'Handbook for Today's Catholic' it states, "the mystery of the Trinity is the central doctrine of the Catholic Faith. Upon it are based all the other teachings of the Church."
See the word mystery, and then look at the warning in Revelation
Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
The first time we have the concept of the Trinity, is with Constantine, in the council of Nicaea, in 325 AD.
This elevated the Son to the same status as the Father. Making them both the same age, and that neither had a beginning.
Now take a look at
Psalms 2:7 I will declare the decree: Yehowah hath said unto me, Thou my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Yehowshuwa was begotten by Yehowah.)
John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. (Note: greater not equal).
Note: Constantine was also the high priest of sun worship, which was carried on from Babylon. And in Sun worship there is three gods, the father, mother, and child. Where the child becomes the father, which in turn the child becomes God. Sound familiar? Yes, that is why Constantine introduced the Trinity to continue on this sun worship. And also why Catholics pray to Mary, whom they call 'mother of God'. They claim that the holy spirit is the third person of the trinity, but it clearly states that the Almighty is spirit, there is no other 'person'. this is an invention so that they can worship Mary, like in sun worship. see : Dagon Worship, the Fish God in Christianity
Yehowah is One
To continue on with the Trinity issue, I will take some quotes from the bible, to hopefuly prove that we are to worship the Almighty Yehowah, and not a Trinity. First a message from Joel
Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, whosoever shall call on the name of the Yehowah shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yehowah hath said, and in the remnant whom Yehowah shall call.
Psalms 84:12 O Yehowah of hosts, blessed the man that trusteth in thee.
Psalms 83:18 That may know that thou, whose name alone Yehowah, the most high over all the earth.
Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god(elohiym): for Yehowah, whose name Jealous, a jealous God (elohiym):
Isaiah 45:5 I am Yehowah, and there is none else, there is no God(elohiym) beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
Isaiah 45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is non beside me. I am Yehowah, and there is none else.
So it clearly states that there is only one Almighty, and that the son Yehowshuwa came to tell us this. We are to believe what Yehowshuwa told us.
John 17:26 And I have declared unto them thy name and will declare it; that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them,....
Yehowshuwa also stated when asked what the first commandment of all is
Mark 12:29 Hear, O Israel; Yehowah our God(elohiym) is one Yehowah 30: And thou shalt love Yehowah thy God(elohiym) with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strenght: this is the first commandment.
This is a quote from the Old Testament where he uses his Fathers name.
Yehowah and Yehowshuwa
More about the issue of the Trinity please read False Doctrines Like the Trinity and the Chi-Rho, Used in Christianity to Convince Everyone That Jesus Christ is God. . Some will claim the use of the words 'our' and 'us' is a proof that there is a Trinity. But if you examine Strong's concordance you will find that these two words are not in the old testament at all, and have been put there by the translators. But having said that, it states in Proverbs 8:21 that Yehowshuwa witnessed his Father create everything, he was brought forth before his Father created the everything.
Isaiah 43:10 Ye my witnesses, saith Yehowah, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I he: before me there was no God (Elohiym) formed, neither shall there be after me I, I Yehowah; and beside me no saviour.
Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith Yehowah the King of Israel, and his redeemer Yehowah of hosts; I the first, and I the last; and beside me no God (Elohiym). 7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared ? ye even my witnesses. Is there a God (Elohiym) beside me? yea, no God (Elohiym); I know not .9 They that make a graven image all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
(There are many more verses in Isaiah that declare Yehowah is one)
Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It my people: and they shall say, Yehowah my God ( Elohiym ).
Zechariah 14:9 And Yehowah shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Yehowah, and his name one.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, Yehowah, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb (Yehowshuwa) that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, unto him that sitteth upon the throne,(Yehowah) and unto the Lamb (Yehowshuwa) for ever and ever.
Mentioning only the Father, (Yehowah), and the lamb (Yehowshuwa) his son, no mention of three, only the Father, the Almighty and his son the lamb.
So it is quite clear that there is only one Almighty, and that he sent his only begotten son to declare his name, and to pay the ultimate sacrifice for everyone who believeth him.
