The Name of God

Updated on October 8, 2014

Why Do We Have Names

Without a name you are no one - nothing! So why does religion hide the name and use only titles to address the gods, at least this is the case in Christianity

A name is a signpost, a direction finder, and a vehicle of identity. To know who you are talking to you ask for a name. What if there is no name?

You are speaking to someone over the telephone, lets say, the first thing you ask is "who are you?" or "what's your name?" Even little children have to be identified by their name. Its usually the first thing you ask of them. But what if they don't have a name? You give them one, either in your mind or out loud you call them something..

Who Are You Talking To WhenYou Pray

Do you know what God looks like?

If you believe in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost what are their names? Are they one or three? If you say 'in the name of the father' who are you addressing? What does 'he' look like? Where is he? What father? What is his or her name?

These are titles and proof that the name of God is not known within our culture. You are told 'he' is living in some remote heavenly place and that you cannot reach him, except through a priest or intercessor. But where is heaven. I have examined the pros and cons of what it could be on this site.

The facts are that prayers are written and learned by heart and those who say them are not really praying. They are not asking the Spirit anything from their own perspective. Most prayers means absolutely nothing and are nothing more than creeds designed to get people to conform and believe in the same thing. When you say them you are not addressing anyone or anything, but you are reciting a piece of prose that probably has no meaning. Without a name you are asking the air for something.

You are not meant to know how to contact the Spirit nor that It delivers healing and other things. You don't pay a cent to connect to it when you are tuned in. You don't have to say monotonous prayers, do any form or penance, or be afraid of death. So the powers that be have removed the name and you cannot find the thing you are looking for, namely your God, your other self, your inner being. For the Spirit is all of those things. It is so powerful that religion quivers in its presence.

Religion has turned the Spirit into the devil by declaring that anything that happens outside of its walls is blasphemy. The hierarchy of churches make out that you will go to hell if you dare to partake of these things or listen to something other than what they teach. But where is hell or heaven for that matter.

By such lies they blind and deafen you to reality. God is real, is there for anyone who seeks it out, it is not a man, and it heals. These words are in the Old Testament as proof of the confusion that religion has brought about.

For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from you land and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish Jeremiah 27:10

Who do You Pray to?

Can you state the name of God

yes,

      I agree with Loraine Roses, it is JHVH for Jehovah or YHWH for Yahweh. Original Hebrew (not Masoretic Hebrew) had no vowels. The 4 character Tetragrammaton is in the scriptures. I wrote a piece on this for Squidoo, and moved it here when HubPages acquired squidoo.

      I think it must be LARRY. Sounds like a reasonable choice.

      I alwasy pray to Jehovah. He is the only true God, the creator and life giver. His name is in the Bible thousands of time. The new KJ will now put it back there to honor Him that deserves honor.

    • Laraine Sims 5 years ago from Lake Country, B.C.

      In the ancient Hebrew Scriptures Gods name is represented by four letters called the tetragrammaton, for which the English characters are JHVH (or YHWH). How many times does the divine name, represented by the tetragrammaton, occur in the Hebrew Scriptures? It occurs 6,823 times! Just how the name is pronounced is not exactly known, but the most popular way of rendering it is Jehovah. To translate the tetragrammaton as the LORD is to obscure the divine name. Yet that is what most of Christendoms Bible translators have done? Like the Jewish clergy in Jesus day and today, they refuse to know and use the divine name. Thus out of the 6,823 times that the four-letter name or tetragrammaton occurs, the translators of the King James Version Bible used the name Jehovah only four times! The Roman Catholic Douay Version and Jewish versions entirely eliminate the name Jehovah. When the much-advertised Revised Standard Version recently came out, what happened to the divine name? The translators completely removed it! In the preface the translators explained that they were using the term the LORD, thus returning to the procedure of the King James Version, which follows the precedent of the ancient Greek and Latin translators and the long established practice in the reading of the Hebrew scriptures in the synagogue. Thus the translators of this popular Bible follow a course like the Jewish clergy, who rejected Christ Jesus. No wonder the words of Jesus are especially apt today: Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you!John 17:25

      When God revealed himself to Abraham he said his name was I AM. The Bible is actually full of many names for I AM that he uses to reveal his character to man. The reason people call him Father is because he adopts believers into his family and calls them his children.

        No. Everything exists is the energy of One.

      • Vallygems1 5 years ago

        God is everything and as we are part of this then so are we. We affirm to ourselves. For me it is fine for people to have a name for this energy of creation.

      • MargoPArrowsmith 6 years ago

        God is the one thing that should not have 'a' name. God is all

      The Spirit Transformed into Satan

      What does it mean?

      A vision was given to me of a large passenger plane flying high while coming towards me.

      As it approached it suddenly flipped over and crashed into the hillside behind me. Devastated it caused me to stretch out my arms and call on Jesus to save them. Then the Spirit said "get the bible". It opened at these words:

      Woe unto them that seek to hide their counsel from God, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

      Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potters clay: for shall the work say of him that made it. He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? Isaiah 29:25,16

      With these words the vision was solved. It had long puzzled me why people only take notice of the hierarchy and established organizations. If a claim is made of healing or visions outside of that environment it is instantly condemned as being of the devil. But there is only one spirit and it does heal and it is not controlled by religions. That means that the churches turn God into the devil.

      This was just another link in the rigmarole of lies that mankind believes.

      Those who formulated and teach that the Spirit is not the Creator and that there are other gods to serve are working in the dark. They are themselves without a spiritual connection so they don't perceive the power of God or the likelihood that they are killing the world with their lies.

      This was driven home when visits to religious organizations showed me how those who preach and claim that their words are from God do not know the Spirit. They are hiding the truth for the sake of man made power and control. Their motivation is purly perception. If they can be perceived to have power over men then they are of God. Rubbish! Those who follow them are like the passengers in the aircraft. They are doomed. But worse they take all who listen to them with them for the former represent the passengers in the planes that crash

      The Attempt to Find a Name for God

      This video plays on the name being Yahweh, and that is based on a message supposedly given to Moses concerning the Chilcren of Israel who were said to be trapped in captivity in Egypt. But this story is proven wrong on several counts, including archaeology where there is no evidence of such a migration, and by the fact that the named Pharaoh was not he who ruled Egypt t tht time.

      Visions Led To Unravelling the Mysteries

      Why are they there in the first place?

      The first time the Spirit commissioned me I was told "tear down the wall of Churches". I had no idea what it meant for a long time. The visions and teachings revealed exactly the meaning. One day the bible opened and these words leaped out:

      Because they have seduced my people, saying Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall and others daubed it with untempered mortar:

      Say unto them that daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower, and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

      Lo, when the wall is fallen shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? Ezekiel 13:10-12

      The promise continues:

      So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof; and you shall know that I am God. Ezekiel 13:14

      Through the teachings and the visions the foundation of the wall was unearthed and you can read it all in my books, if you have a mind to do so. This is the story of how and why I was commissioned to take down the wall

      The Wall hides the great treasure of just who God is. It is not a man or a man who has died and gone to the heavens. It is not anything that man has proposed. The reason the Jews sought to hide the name of God is because they did not know it in the first place. So Catholics and others who depend on the Old Testament also do not know it. The video beloe is a lot of mumbo jumbo about nothing. It proves nothing and goes no where except to push everybody back into the circle of mystery and intrigue.

      Now I have a voice because the Internet was invented after the visions were given. The way to build web sites was shown to me, the means to do it was given and everything has fallen in place exactly as God intended. There is much more to know about the prophecies but that will come in another lens.

      A Debate on the Name of God.

      Haunted by a Vision

      For months, perhaps years, the vision stayed with me. It comprised a wall that was too high to get over, too wide to go round and too deep to go under. At that time the power was strong every day and many visions were given along with answers.

      One day while reading in the garden the power overtook me and it was impossible to read. Putting the book down and going to my room it forced me to lie down and my legs would no longer support me. As I lay back on the pillow it was as if something lifted me high above the earth. But what I gazed down on was not the wonderful blue planet we see in pictures from outer space but rather a solid black mass of some type of goo.

      It was apparent that nothing could penetrate it. It could not be cut or removed. Suddenly a mighty bright light appeared from where I stood and it flashed through the goo and raced around the earth beneath. As it spread it pushed the blackness up and it broke into many pieces and sailed off into space. Behind it was the blue planet in all its glory and it gleamed from the cleansing.

      It took a while, many months in fact, before the truth of the vision was known, Even now it is hard to believe but the truth of my message about reincarnation and the name of God will cleanse the earth of the lies. But back then neither did I know how fast a message could be delivered worldwide into millions of email boxes at the same time.

      The wall which appears so impenetrable is made of nothing more than imagination. That is the untempered mortar that holds it together. A recent reminder of the promise that "God will use the foolish things of this world to confound the wise" was aired. That is exactly what has happened.

      Men have put forward the lies and have caught themselves in their own trap. The image of the god they put up is nothing more than an iconic creation without power or substance. Man has defeated himself.

      Our Contaminated Food

      A favorite addage from my teenage years is "what you eat today walks and talks tomorrow." But I never realized that it would mean so much in the work I am now doing.

      One morning while dressing a vision showed me food cooking in a vat of oil. It looked beautiful, rather like stuffed Chinese type spring rolls. Then a hand appeared holding a slotted spoon. It lifted the food out of the oil and tipped it into a toilet full of human excreta. The lot then cooked together until the hand returned and dished it out onto plates held out by a mass of hungry people.

      In desperation they were trying to get something to eat. The sight made me sick and for some three weeks I begged the Spirit to show me what it means.

      One day while reading the bible it opened at these passages and I read:

      And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thous eat it.

      Thou shalt drink water also by measure . . . from time to time shalt thou drink.

      And thou shalt eat it with barley cakes and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight . . . Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the gentiles, whither I will drive them. Ezekiel 4:10-13

      Through my years of working with the Spirit and of research into its origins it became painfully clear that the bible is that food. genuine prophecies were mixed with the dreams of men to become totally polluted and hard to separate. The Spiritual teaching given to Israel (the spiritual people of God) was stolen and adopted by just about every religion to claim association with God.

      But Israel is not a race of people, or a tribe or anything else. It applies strictly to those of the Spirit and not to a country or those who claim one in that name. The term means, in fact, 'Eye of Light - Power of God'. It identifies the spiritual who may exist anywhere or in any culture, color, or creed. Mostly they are those who can pick the lies and escape from them. They are also the most persecuted because of it.

      Crucifixion at Dawn

      The act of crucifying god men was known and practiced on every continent. They died at dawn to rise with the sun into the heavens so they could become father gods.

      Dawn was once called 'noon' which means 'no power' and that because there is no sun, no warmth and no light. The term was given to midday by a Roman Caesar who established the Christian crucified savior as the one and only Son of God. From that day on the changes to ancient mythology altered the way people see their gods.

      It was this man and this time and those who came after him to complete his work that is the subject of my book "How 666 Stole Jesus". Its rather fascinating that he got away with it.

      Ancient Sounds and Modern Thought

      The progression of beliefs

      When led to examine the ancient sounds and their meaning it came about that man's name for God stood out like a beacon. Its everywhere!

      In every culture the basic name is 'I-S' and it means 'Eye of Light'. It was first given to the sun, the Mother god of antiquity. But it indicated that through the light came power and that the rays of light healed. Which they do.

      'Is' stands for 'being' and for 'life'. Someone 'is' because they are alive. "Descartes wrote "I am therefore I live". 'AM' is from "O-M' or 'circle of the mother' and this is in 'dome', 'ma-dom', 'domestic', 'dominant', and 'dominion' to name but a few of her attributes. It is also in 'omnipotent', 'oma', and so on.

      The potency and imagery of the Mother god appears in all ancient cultures. She is 'Isis' in Egypt, 'Astar' in the Middle East, 'Ishtar' in Persia, and 'Zoro Astar', or Morning Star, in the first ever recorded religion of Assyria. 'Astar' means 'a star' and the sun is the star'

      Ishtar is a derivative of the name. and I-star, or the Eye Star' is in Easter, a time when traditionally men were crucified at dawn to rise up with the rising star and fertilize it.

      They died in her circle on the cross and were titled 'b-el' or 'b-al', which means 'born a god' or 'born of god'. But they were also the subject of 'her circle' or 'her-O' which is the origin of 'hero.

      The act of crucifixion transformed them into the role of 'Father god' because they were expected to fertilize the Mother god so that spring life could take place. That is when the 'sun' was reborn and the new year began. The timing of these events has to do with the March equinox and the solstice. This is told in depth in my book How 666 Stole Jesus.

      These men had no names because thousands died every year to become her mate. So Father god had no name.

      Some of the earliest rock art known depicts this. Men with wings, the heads of birds, the sword of victory at their sides, rose up to the heavens holding onto the circle and cross symbol as kites. Sometimes 3 men hung onto the one kite indicating the Trinity of later religions. But the standard for all of them was the huge erect penises that indicate their readiness for procreation.

      'Is' doubled is 'Isis' but if the doubling is reverse it is "issi'. This was a common practice in ancient times and is how many names were created to either hide the origins or to give it more potency.

      The Spirit predicted that one day we would know the name of God and this verse is in the Old Testament. And it shall be at that day, said God, that thou shall call me Issi and no longer call me 'Baal'. Hosea 2:16

      In some bibles this is 'Ishi' because the Jews added 'h' to many words to alter their meaning. The letter [h] did not come into being before c4000 - 3000 ya and it came into Hebrew via Greek. It literally stands for 'mountain' and the 'seat of Zeus'. jLook at the shape of it to see why.

      Issi or Isis underwent a change through Indo European and the Germanic languages which substituted [j] for [i] in many cases. (There is no [j] in Latin) So Isis became j'sis and then 'jesus' through use. Thus, we can rightly say that 'Jesus' is the name of the Spirit of the Universe. It was stolen by the man described in the bible as 666 to deceive the world. All this is based on irrefutable evidence from many sources, including Vatican archives, the bible (in which he is described, named and warned against) and ancient text.

      So healing takes place in the name of Jesus, just as happened with my son's broken finger, the cat's abscess and in dozens of other examples I can give you. One woman instantly stopped smoking, another ceased to take alcohol after over 20 years of alcoholism, another man's broken shoulder was instantly healed, another woman got pregnant after years of trying and thousands spent on IVF treatments. Along with that some have been instantly healed of cancer, depression, broken bones, and the list goes on.

      Why? If this is not from the power of the Universe then who is it from. Don't say the devil unless you can prove it. Religion claims that anything that happens outside of the faith is of the devil - who are they kidding?.

          @GramaBarb: What does that tell you, Barb? No name is mentioned. This is the trick to fool the masses because no one knew God's name.

        • GramaBarb 4 years ago from Vancouver

          Read: The Most High is identified by name at Psalm 83:18. And the Name is to be hallowed or sanctified Matthew 6:9. Jesus made God's name known John 17:26.

          The Hebrew name YHWH means translated "I shall prove to be what I shall prove to be.. That is a guarantie that God can do whatever He promises and that he will be reliable. He has chosen that name and tells us to use it.

        • Laraine Sims 5 years ago from Lake Country, B.C.

          When Moses asked God about His name, Jehovah replied: I shall prove to be what I shall prove to be. (Exodus 3:14) Rotherhams translation renders it: I Will Become whatsoever I please. Jehovahs name reveals that he is a God of innumerable roles. To use a simple illustration: A mother may need to fill many roles each day in caring for her children - as a nurse, a cook, a teacher - according to the need that arises. It is similar with Jehovah, though on a more elevated level. In order to accomplish his loving purpose for mankind, he can become whatever he pleases, filling whatever role is needed. Knowing Jehovah by name thus involves understanding and appreciating his many roles; as a wise Counselor, a powerful Savior, and a generous Provider, to name just a few. The rich meaning of Jehovahs name is, indeed, awe-inspiring.

            Nope - I think that the bible and other texts are written by man for man. There are certain good morals contained within, but the literal or exact interpretation of them must be done on the context of today's society.

          • MargoPArrowsmith 6 years ago

            The Hebrews thought it was profane to write the name of G-D and thus they didn't. While I don't mind using a word, we do need that, I think it needs to be general for respect.

              The subject you write about is the most important in universe. God Jehovah deserve to have the honor, worship and credit for his beautiful creation. But I do sense a deeper knowledge in what you write. For some readers, there may be more questions than answers.

              I agree with a bit of what you say here. I have been a bible student for many years and I believe that is the best place for us to find the truth. The truth is not a mystery. It is plain for all to find.

              I am a christian. And as a believer, I believe that God is spirit because that is what the Bible says. He lives in the realm of the spirit. That is where my afterlife will be. Man can't find heaven because it is in a different dimension, in the spirit realm. I also believe that the Bible is God's infallible world. If it can't be trusted who am I to choose which parts are true and which are not. I believe that my God is able to keep his Bible together. I also believe he is no respecter of persons and that male or female we are equal in his sight. Religion has taught many untruths, but God is truth. Those who are lead by his spirit will find the truth he has revealed in his word. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this subject. Maybe you can visit my 101 lenses sometime.
