Woe to you lawyers! For you took away the key of knowledge: you entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered” Luke 11:52

 

In part two we looked at the Personal revealed name of Yahweh as one of the first *significations necessary when studying the Bible. I would like to refresh our memories on this very important teaching.

 

*signification

noun


That which is signified by a word or expression: acceptation, connotation, denotation, import, intent, meaning, message, purport, sense, significance, significancy, value.
Something visible or evident that gives grounds for believing in the existence or presence of something else: badge, evidence, index, indication, *indicator, manifestation, mark, note, sign, stamp, symptom, token, witness



 Ok, some Sacred Name groups using Yahweh's name, believe there are many variations of Almighty Yahweh's name. Some of these various forms are: IHVH, JHVH, JHWH, YHVH AND YHWH, JAHAVEH, JAHVAH, JAHVE, JAHVEH, YAHVE, YAHVEH, YAHWE, YAHWEH to name a few! So! How do we arrive at the one true acceptable name?

 Research has shown that the tetragrammaton (Definition below) YHWH,

Tet·ra·gram·ma·ton (tĕt'ra-grăm'a-tŏn'
n.

The four Hebrew letters usually transliterated as YHWH  used as a biblical proper name for G-d.

[Middle English Tetragramaton, from Greek tetragrammaton, four-letter word, from neuter of tetragrammatos, four-lettered : tetra-, tetra- + gramma, grammat-, letter.]

is best transliterated,

trans·lit·er·ate (trăns-lĭt'er-rāt', trănz-)
tr.v., -at·ed, -at·ing, -ates.

To represent (letters or words) in the corresponding characters of another alphabet

 (brought across from one language to another language) as Yahweh!

Now we have something to work with! First you must recognize the name of Yahweh in its' exact form and pronunciation! No other name will substitute for this given Memorial. 

"And Elohim said moreover unto Moses, In this manner you shall say unto the children of Israel, Yahweh, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."  Exodus 3:15    

 

I would like to add a few more variations of Yahweh’s name to the above list!

 

Yahwah, Yahweh, YHWH, Yah Veh, Yah, Yahway, Yaohu, Ul, Yahvah, Yahuwah, Yahuweh, Iahueh, YHVH, Yahuah.

 

  Now I want to list the various Bibles on the open market. There will be quite a few, as you will see! Actually there are more then the ones I am listing!

Do you remember in part one we were looking at the time frame when Yahweh’s name once again was being used?  Yes, we mentioned the years 1857 and 1900.  History records the short form of Yahweh’s name was being used by the pilgrims prior to and upon arrival to the shores of America. This particular form used an I instead of Y and was spelled like this, Iah!  Pronounced Yah as in the ending of HalleluYah! History records the following for us today!

 

Music of the Pilgrims

The Ainsworth Psalter, published in 1612, was the only songbook brought with the Pilgrims to America. An Englishman, Henry Ainsworth, compiled this Psalter while a refugee in Amsterdam. He paraphrased many of the Psalms and the tunes were Hebrew melodies. They were sung in unison with a strong beat and accent. None are found in today’s hymnals.

A Psalter is a songbook containing metrical versions of the Psalms and the melody lines to be used for congregational singing. These songbooks were a result of King Henry VIII’s rejection of the Roman Catholic Church because all hymns were abolished as the new English church struggled to break old traditions.

To the Pilgrims, psalm singing was not only an act of worship, but also the favorite pastime at social gatherings.

 

Notice the term Hebrew melodies here. The name of the Heavenly Father in the shortened form was used in the Ainsworth Psalter!

 

So, now we see another time in history that a form of Yahweh’s name appears. Actually, Yahweh’s name was never lost, only hidden or taken away as we read in Luke 11:52.

 

“ How do you say, We are wise, and the law of Yahweh is with us? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has worked falsely.” Jeremiah 8:8 We will be bringing more information forth on this subject later.

 

It is paramount to use the name of Almighty Yahweh exactly as it is transliterated (brought across) from the Hebrew texts.  This will eliminate almost all of the groups in ch--chianity today as they use pagan names, titles or terms for Yahweh and Greek idol terms for the Savior of mankind, Yahshua the Messiah.  So, how can we tell the difference among the groups that use Yahweh’s name (or a form of it) which ones are teaching truth, and which ones are teaching error or falsehood?  Can you use a mixture of the true names and the pagan titles we were taught? N o! Absolutely not!

 

“And in all things that I have said to you take heed: and make no mention of the name of other Elohim, neither let it be heard out of your mouth. Exodus 23:13

 

Also in Acts 4:12 “And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, in which we must be saved.”

 

This really narrows it down, if you understand exactly what names we are talking about in these passages!

 

Will you find unity with everyone that uses the Sacred Name of Yahweh?  Will everyone who uses the name of Yahweh agree on everything in the Bible?  Amos 3:3 states”  Shall two walk together, except they have agreed?”  No!  You will not find unity of doctrine among the majority of those who call upon the name of Yahweh!

 

One of the things we look for is Unity in the Bible.  First we have to be in agreement as to the true names of the Heavenly Father and the Son of Man.  When we see unity on this, we can move forward to the next step and that is the correct day of rest.

 

Questions That Need to Be Answered:

1.      Which day is the Sabbath?

2.      Do the scriptures allow polygamy?

3.      Is there still a need to sacrifice an actual lamb at Passover?

4.      Is Satan a female and actually Yahweh’s estranged wife?

5.      Do the scriptures teach a Trinitarian doctrine?
