The True Name
by Cythnia Jardon


Yahweh Elohim


< Prev | 1 | 2


In Hebrew translation, Exodus 20:7 reads: "Thou shall not substitute the name of Yahweh thy El (Elohim), for Yahweh will not hold them guiltless who will substitute his name."

The King James version of the Bible also has remnant references to the title "Elohim" as well as the name "Yahweh" in it, where translators and scribes may very well have either purposely or inadvertently left in the references to that which they knew were the true name and title. These can be found in various places, Psalms 68:4 is one such reference. "Sing unto God, sing praises to his name; extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him." KJV

Knowing now that scriptural records from the Dead Sea Scrolls and before do confirm the Creatorís name as "Yahweh", we must ask about the Holy Spirit and the Word or Son.

In the New Testament the Messiah said, "I am come in my Fatherís name..." Many people have concluded, for lack of being shown differently, that the name Jesus must come in some way from the word Jehovah. In fact there is no connection. And to take that point further the names Jah, Jehovah and Jesus could not have and did not exist prior to the year 1350 AD. The letter J is really only about 600 years old and it is an English letter. That letter as well as the sound it makes did not and still does not exist in the Greek or Hebrew languages. The name of the Holy Spirit is Yahshua.

 Salvation In Messiah's Name

Since the Messiah was Yahweh in fleshly form, his name would point to that. And that is where Yah, a contracted form of Yahweh, in the name comes from. In Hebrew the word "shua" means salvation. Therefore Yahshua means "Yahweh is salvation."

As stated in Acts 4:12, the name Yahshua, is the only name by which one can find salvation. The Century Bible, 1901, states that just as Yahweh has been substituted with god and lord or Adonai, so too has Yahshua, the name of Yahwehís Son."Likewise, the name of Yahwehís Son, Yahshua: (Yahweh is Salvation), has been substituted by Yeshua, Iesous, Iesus, Jesus and Ea-Zeus (Healing Zeus)."

So where did Jehovah, Jah and Jesus come from? Erroneous English translations and words stolen from other languages.  There was never a reference to Jesus or Jehovah or Jah in the Hebrew nor the Greek language.

Letter "J" Latest Alphabet

A good encyclopedia, dictionary or other reference book containing the etymology of the letter "J" shows this letter did not even exist until the mid-1300s and was not universally used in English script until 1650. In fact, the letter "J" is the latest addition to the English alphabet and was inserted into the alphabet after "I" from whence it was created. The first printing of the King James version of the Bible in 1611 uses the words Iesus and Iudge.  The "J" was merely a decorative script form of the letter "I." It had no definitive sound or meaning other than "I" when it was first devised. It was merely a "device" to enhance the letter "I." If one looks up the word "device" in the dictionary you will find that one of the definitions is "a trick." This is exactly what the use of the letter "J" does to all of Christianity today. It tricks them.

Whether or not one wants to accept the name "Yahshua," it is fact that the "J" did not exist until nearly 1,400 years after the death of the Messiah. Therefore, the logical conclusion is that his name was not and could not have been Jesus. It is also clear that the reference to "Jah" would have actually been "Yah" in a Hebrew or Greek translation.

It also follows, of course, that the name "Jehovah" is erroneous. In The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures (the Jehovahís Witnesses), The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, admit in the foreword that:

"While inclined to view the pronunciation "Yahweh" as the more correct way, we have retained the form "Jehovah" because of peopleís familiarity with it since the 14th century." But remember Acts 4:12 -- there is no other name by which one can find salvation, regardless of familiarity.  It is said that "familiarity breeds contempt."

In The Catholic Encyclopedia under the word Jehovah, it is admitted that the true name and pronunciation is Yahweh. Their findings are limited to the Old Testament. The Catholics separate themselves from the name Yahweh, relegating its usage to the Old Testament.

Even though they recognize that the correct name of the Creator is Yahweh, they do not even attempt to explore the possibility that Jesus may be an erroneous name.

Under the entry of Jesus Christ, The Catholic Encyclopedia gives a discourse on the origins of the name Jesus. They readily admit that this word is taken from the Greek word Iesous. Their etymological investigation ends at that point, however. Further investigation of the origins of the word Jesus show that the Greek word Iesous comes from an earlier word, Ea-Zeus, which means "healing god."

It isnít hard to discern that, while they didnít want to recognize him as the Messiah, the Greeks and Romans could not refute the powers of the Messiah and therefore gave him the status due a god by referring to him as a "healing god."  He was therefore called "Ea-Zeus." That was a title, however, given by the Greeks, rather than his given name. He came in his Fatherís name Yah(shua). They classified him as merely one of many "healing gods."

It is understandable that the men of that time who did not recognize the Messiah, yet had to give credence to his powers, would then assume he was one of Zeusí gods and give him a name that characterized him as such, Ea-Zeus.  That makes the name Ea-Zeus, Ieusous and finally Jesus, the form that turned up in the 1400s, an idolatrous and generic name. "I am come in my Fatherís name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." (John 5:43) KJV

Yahshua predicted that he would not be recognized as the Messiah. But he also told the masses that he had come in his Fatherís name. If we still want to hold on to the name Jesus, then it must also follow that even today, we donít believe he was the Messiah.

Because Jesusí father would then have been Zeus (I come in my fatherís name {Ea-Zeus}). But because we know that the true name of the Creator is Yahweh and because it is believed that the Messiah is the Son, it follows that the true name of the Son is Yahshua, who did indeed come in his Fatherís name.

And was indeed sent to be our salvation.
