Yahusha said as recorded in
John 5:43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him . Jah, should read Yah!
YAH- H3050 Yâhh, yaw; contraction for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name:—Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Compare names in '-iah,' '-jah.'
H3069- Yᵉhôvih, yeh-ho-vee'; a variation of H3068 [used after H136, and pronounced by Jews as H430, in order to prevent the repetition of the same sound, since they elsewhere pronounce H3068 as H136]:—God.
Its very important to understand that the Jewish national name of the Most High is Not the Same as the Hebrew Name Yah or YAHUAH. When returning to our Hebrew Origins of worship we must Use the Sacred Name Yah as it was given to men long ago.
How do we know Jesus is NOT the name of our Savior?
Some say Yeshua is from the Hebrew Scriptures, but the name " Yeshua " is actually the Aramaic ( Jesuits ) form meaning " May his name be blotted out ". Most, if not all, Biblical scholars today recognized the Savior's birth Name as Yahusha (with some minor variations like Yahsha , which comes from the sacred name movement of the 1930's and Yeshua the Aramaic form), Even thought these names are close to the true name, they are no where near the counterfeit name Jesus . but this is not what they teach from the pulpit. It is admitted in many bible dictionaries that the counterfeit name " Jesus " should be YAHUSHA . " Yeshua " also is the name used by today's Jews and messianic believers when referring to the Messiah. The " Yeh " was a replacement of " Yah " to avoid pronouncing the Father's name even in its shortened, poetic form (a traditional Jewish restriction that began at the time of the Babylonian exile).
By pronouncing Yahusha , we state that Yahuah is salvation or Yah is Salvation
Making the true name of the Messiah, in Hebrew, his own language is Yahusha : pronounced ( Yah Hoo Shah ).
י Yod - Produces a "Y" or "I" sound. is in the shape of a hand reaching down, The actual Hebrew word “ yod ” means: “arm or hand, Work, Throw, Worship
ה Heh - A Hebrew vowel letter that produces the "Ah" or "Oh" sound, and is in the shape of a window (in Heaven). Means: Look, Reveal, Breath
ו Waw - Also called " Vav ". As a Hebrew vowel letter it produces an "oo" (u) or "oh" sound (like in #7307 Ruach ). Shaped like an arm that reaches down through the window and means "nail", Add, Secure, Hook. The Vav is also the number 6 , the number of man. Yahusha came as the Son of Man ( Yahuah in the flesh).
ש Shin - Produces the "sh" sound. The following "oo" sound is indicated by a vowel pointing but Deuteronomy 3:21 and Judges 2:7 actually gives us another " waw " after this letter, proving the "shu" pronunciation as valid. This is why Strong's 3091 gives 2 possible spellings. Shin means Tooth , Sharp, Press, Eat, Two
ע Ayin - Silent without a vowel point but indicates an "ah" sound at the end of " Yahusha ". Ayin means Eye , Watch, Know, Shade
Nowhere in the Scriptures is Je, or sus or any form of Jesus a form of God, or Lord or Lord God. I have been giving you information on how important the Hebrew definitions are, as well as the Greek since most of the New Testament was written in Greek. This sermon will also break down the word Christ and as always I will provide links to this information. Knowing how to Call upon the Name of Yahuah is so vital especially in these End Times.
1.The Letter J- 10th letter of the English alphabet, pronounced "jay," as in "kay" for -k-, but formerly written out as jy, rhyming with -i- and corresponding to French ji.
one of the most stable English letters (it has almost always the same sound), it is a latecomer to the alphabet and originally had no sound value. The letter itself began as a scribal modification of Roman -i- in continental Medieval Latin. The scribes added a "hook" to small -i-, especially in the final position in a word or roman numeral, to distinguish it from the strokes of other letters. The dot on the -i- (and thus the -j-) and the capitalization of the pronoun I are other solutions to the same problems.
In English, -j- was used as a roman numeral throughout Middle English, but the letter -y- was used to spell words ending an "i" sound, so -j- was not needed to represent a sound. Instead, it was introduced into English c. 1600-1640 to take up the consonantal sound that had evolved from the Roman i- since Late Latin times. In Italian, g- was used to represent this, but in other languages j- took the job. This usage is attested earliest in Spanish, where it was in place before 1600.
No word beginning with J is of Old English derivation. [OED]
English dictionaries did not distinguish words beginning in -i- and -j- until 19c., and -j- formerly was skipped when letters were used to express serial order.
In Latin texts printed in modern times, -j- often is used to represent Latin -i- before -a-, -e-, -o-, -u- in the same syllable, which in Latin was sounded as the consonant in Modern English you, yam, etc., but the custom has been controversial among Latinists:
The character J, j, which represents the letter sound in some school-books, is an invention of the seventeenth century, and is not found in MSS., nor in the best texts of the Latin authors. [Lewis]
The Messiah's True Name as found in Research and in Encyclopedias "Originally, the name of the Messiah was , pronounced Yahushua or (Yehoshua). This is the Messiah's original name. ...the Messiah's name is actually the same name as Joshua, Son of Nun... correctly pronounced "Yahushua". It is quite evident that the modern form "Jesus" doesn't even remotely resemble the original name that the disciples used.. This is a fact. "
"Jesus Christ....Matthew (1:21) interprets the name originally as Jehoshua, that is, 'Jehovah is Salvation,'" -Encyclopedia Americana (Vol.16, p. 41)
"The name Jesus is NOT a derivative
of YHWH (Jehovah). There is great cause
for alarm when this hybrid Greek name
is being plied onto Messiah because
not only is it NOT the sanctified given name
of Yeshua (Jehoshua) but prophetic and
sanctified unity within the Word of YHWH is lost!

Baruch Ben Daniel
"They (the Graeco-Roman World) had
worshipped Zeus as the supreme deity.
Their savior was Zeus, so now they
were ready to accept Jehoshua as Jesus

translated scriptures say that Jahwah's

-The Origin of Christianity
by A.B. Traina
"Some authorities, who have spent their entire
lives studying the origins of names believe
that "Jesus" actually means - "Hail Zeus!"
For Iesous in Greek IS "Hail Zeus."
"Ie" translates as "Hail" and "sous"
or "sus" translates as Zeus. The English
name "Jesus", therefore, stems etymologically
from "Jupiter-Zeus" the chief god of the
ancient Greek Olympus."

it would have been closer to Joshua

The Sound of the Shofar

Let us now take a look at the name Lord.
1. Lord in Hebrew Means Baal.
Strong's # 1166 baal have dominion over, be husband, married, wife A primitive root; to be master; hence, (as denominative from ba'al) to marry -- have dominion (over), be husband, marry(-ried, X wife).
Strong's # 1167 baal archer, babbler, bird, captain, chief man, confederate, have to do, dreamer,From ba'al; a master; hence, a husband, or (figuratively) owner (often used with another noun in modifications of this latter sense) -- + archer, + babbler, + bird, captain, chief man, + confederate, + have to do, + dreamer, those to whom it is due, + furious, those that are given to it, great, + hairy, he that hath it, have, + horseman, husband, lord, man, + married, master, person, + sworn, they of. see HEBREW ba'al (takes us to strongs 1166)
Strong's # 1168 Baal , plural BaalimThe same as ba'al; Baal, a Phoenician deity -- Baal, (plural) Baalim. see HEBREW ba'al (takes us back to strongs # 1166)
Strong's 1168a Baal a heathen god
Strong's 1168b Baal the name of a city in Simeon, also two Israelites
2. Strong's Greek 2962 Kurios God, Lord, master, Sir.
From kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Master (as a respectful title) -- God, Lord, master, Sir.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
When we look at what the Lord means In Greek we get kurios which has multiple meanings. So common knowledge would say we could call upon the name of our boss because he is a Sir, or we could call upon the name of the congress because they are a type of controller. Words that have multiple meanings has NOTHING to Do with Yah.
Now let us take a look at the word Christ.
1. Greek Usage
The Greeks used both the word Messias (a transliteration) and Christos (a translation) for the Hebrew Mashiach (Anointed). The word Christos was far more acceptable to the pagans who were worshiping Chreston and Chrestos.
According to The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible, the word Christos was easily confused with the common Greek proper name Chrestos, meaning "good." According to a French theological dictionary, it is absolutely beyond doubt that Christus and Chrestus, and Christiani and Chrestiani were used indifferently by the profane and Christian authors of the first two centuries A.D. The word Christianos is a Latinism, being contributed neither by the Jews nor by the Christians themselves. The word was introduced from one of three origins: the Roman police, the Roman populace, or an unspecified pagan origin. Its infrequent use in the New Testament suggests a pagan origin.
According to Realencyclopaedie, the inscription Chrestos is to be seen on a Mithras relief in the Vatican. According to Christianity and Mythology, Osiris, the Sun-deity of Egypt, was reverenced as Chrestos. In the Synagogue of the Marcionites on Mount Hermon, built in the third century A.D., the Messiah's title is spelled Chrestos. According to Tertullian and Lactantius, the common people usually called Christ Chrestos.
2. Old English
title given to Jesus of Nazareth, Old English crist (by 830, perhaps 675), from Latin Christus, from Greek khristos "the anointed" (translation of Hebrew mashiah; see messiah), noun use of verbal adjective of khriein "to rub, anoint" (see chrism). The Latin term drove out Old English Hæland "healer, savior," as the preferred descriptive term for Jesus. A title, treated as a proper name in Old English, but not regularly capitalized until 17c. Pronunciation with long -i- is result of Irish missionary work in England, 7c.-8c. The ch- form, regular since c. 1500 in English, was rare before. Capitalization of the word begins 14c. but is not fixed until 17c. The 17c. mystical sect of the Familists edged it toward a verb with Christed "made one with Christ.
Thus we see that Even Christ is not a valid name. Yahusha Is!
The Names That are in the Bible are Translated Wrong as well. (There is a link provided for More Names it is the very first link in the list)
Matthew Strong's # 4993 Mattithyahu = gift of YAHUAH
Obadiah Strong's # 5662 Obadyahu = Servant of YAHUAH
Malchiah Strong's # 4441 Malkiyahu = my king is YAHUAH
Elijah Strong's # 452 Eliyyah = Yahuah is Elohim
As you can see in the Example above All Names Contain Yah. This is not a coincidence. Everyone has meaning to their names.
Mine is Elisabeth and means El Is My Oath
From Ἐλισάβετ (Elisabet), the Greek form of the Hebrew name אֱלִישֶׁבַע ('Elisheva') meaning "my God is an oath", derived from the roots אֵל ('el) referring to the Hebrew God and שָׁבַע (shava') meaning "oath". The Hebrew form appears in the Old Testament where Elisheba is the wife of Aaron, while the Greek form appears in the New Testament where Elizabeth is the mother of John the Baptist.
What names to Call Abba Yah?
Adonai- Adonai is from the Hebrew word Adon, meaning “lord” or “master” and is used over 350 times in the Old Testament. The root concept is “to judge” or “to rule,” conveying the idea of a ruler, a master.
El Elyon- One of them is El Elyon, which means Most High (Deuteronomy 26:19). Most High derives from the Hebrew root for “go up” or “Ascend.”.
Abba Yah- Father Yah
El Shaddai- Yah Almighty- Almighty God found in Genesis 17:1
