What is His Name and what is His Son’s Name?
Do you know it?
Pro 30:4 Who has gone up to the heavens and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name, And what is His Son’s Name, If you know it?
For the potential bride of Mashiach (the Anointed One), these are probably the most important questions in Scripture. It is essential for those who want an intimate (Bridegroom/bride) relationship with their Maker, to seriously search out the correct answer. The enemy has been busy for millennia to hide this important knowledge from the covenant people of the Most High. However, in the last several decades, the Spirit of YaHuWaH has also been busy restoring His Name (Anointing = Authority, Power & Presence. Song 1:3).
Song 1:3 For fragrance your oils are good. Your name is oil poured forth, therefore the maidens love you.
For your Maker is your husband; YaHuWaH of hosts is His Name; and your Redeemer (Yahusha) the set-apart One of Yisra’El; The Elohim of the whole earth shall He be called. Yeshayahu 54:5
It is the literal (letter-formed) Covenant Name of our Maker that links Him as Husband/Master to His Bride. It is solely this Name that will also legalize the Marriage of the Lamb to His bride. Most weddings today become a legal covenant when the bride takes on her husband’s name as her own. This transaction is documented and signed by both parties. Yahusha said that a person who does not believe in His Name is condemned already, (John 3:18). In other words, such a person will not be in a marital relationship with the heavenly Bridegroom. To believe in Him is synonymous with receiving Him and believing in His Name, (John 1:12). To call upon His Name (Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21) is to accept His marriage proposal when He called us by our names into that relationship. (Yeshayahu 43:1). Yahusha said: Many are called, but few are chosen. (Mat.22:14). The chosen are those who respond to His calling by lovingly and respectfully calling upon His Name.
The above is a very brief explanation as to the importance of names in the Scriptural concept of an intimate marital relationship between the Creator and His Covenant people. Few believers know that it is the true/legal names of both parties that are important. Most believers, instead of searching out this liberating truth in the Scriptures, prefer to rest on the fragile excuse that: He knows my heart, and knows that I mean Him no matter what I call Him. These sincere believers do not take into account the very stern warning of the Almighty that: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked… Jer.17:9.
TRUST ONLY THE INSPIRED HEBREW SCRIPTURES, NOT YOUR HEART
Name Pronunciation According to the Alphabet (Heb. Aleph Bet):
In our alphabet 3 letters are used to transliterate the WaW in the Father’s Name. They are U, V and W, the last two are used more frequently in English. In order of most used written transliterations, we find: 1st YHVH, 2nd YHWH and 3rd YHUH. The question is, which is the correct or true form? For the mature believer the answer to our Word based prayers are dependent upon the Authority vested in His true Name. John 14:13-14.
The Jewish historian Josephus, a contemporary of Mashiach, wrote that the Almighty’s Name consisted of 4 vowels. In contradiction modern scholars say that written Hebrew has no vowels. They take their cue from the Masoretes, a group of Jewish rabbis who, in the 7th century CE, invented the so-called “vowel-pointings”, that resulted in the Masoretic Text of the Tanakh (OT). The primary purpose of this “grammar system” of so-called Biblical Hebrew, was to camouflage the Almighty’s Name. They succeeded, for to this day the pronunciation of this most important Name of all names is a most contentious issue amongst believers. Judaism’s totally unscriptural ineffable dogma, that the Almighty’s
Name is unpronounceable, is the downfall of believing Jews in the modern state of Yisra’El, for, according to Scripture, the literal calling upon His Name is the only answer for their deliverance. But they are strictly forbidden to speak it by the religious leaders of Judaism.
The enemy has also managed to corrupt our Bible translations with regard to His Name. It was deliberately erased about 7000 times and substituted with a title (the LORD) that originally was the name of a pagan deity. We need to earnestly search for His true Name within the Hebrew Scriptures, then carry it over into our languages by using the most accurate transliteration letters.
The Son’s Name:
The prophets known as Elijah and Elisha, more correctly transliterated as Eliyahu and Elisha from the Hebrew (אליהו and אלישע) is absolute scriptural proof that Mashiach’s Name is Yahusha (יהושע). Their names literally mean: My Mighty One is Yahu and My Mighty One Saves, and thus speak of the same Mighty One – Yahu who saves, sha. So if we just take the prefix Eli from both these prophets names, and then join the suffix of both names together, we get: Yahu + sha or Yahusha.
This Name of Salvation or Deliverance, spelled YOD, HEY, UAU, SHIN and AYIN is found 28 times in 4 Torah books. Neither the name of Mosheh nor the name of his successor, Joshua (Yahusha), is found in the book of Genesis. It is also most significant that the name Yeshua (ישוע) which is the most popular name used for the Messiah today, is not found a single time in the Torah. Messiah said that Mosheh wrote about Him (Luke 24:27, John 5:46), then surely Mosheh would have mentioned His Name. Furthermore, the name Yeshua came into being for the first time in books that were written after the
Babylonian Exile. It was during the Exile that the ineffable dogma was introduced by the religion of Judaism. The Name Yahusha was too close to the Name YaHuWaH, for comfort.
It was Mosheh in the Torah, who linked the Name of YaHuWaH to that of our beloved Bridegroom Yahusha, forever. That is why the riddle in Proverbs 30:4 is posed in such a way as to refer to One Person – YaHuWaH who Saved. In Numbers 13:16 it is written that Mosheh changed the name of the young man Husha (הושע), the son of Nun, to Yahusha (יהושע). He did this by simply placing the letter YOD (a Righthand in Paleo Hebrew), in front of it. Strongs then explains that the Name H3091, Yhusha (יהושע) comes from the combination of the Name H3068, YaHuWaH (יהוה) and the verb H3467 Ysha (ישע) to form the Name Yahusha meaning YaHuWaH Saved.
I conclude this document with two quotes from the Almighty Himself with regard to His awesome Name. The first is from the Torah and is an instruction to every priest (we are a kingdom of priests), with a wonderful promise attached if the instruction is carried out. The second is from the book of Psalms, and is a promise of protection, long life on this earth, and at last salvation to those who love and use His Name.
And YaHuWaH spoke to Mosheh, and said, Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel, by saying to them, YaHuWaH bless you, and keep you: YaHuWaH make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: YaHuWaH lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. And they shall put My Name upon the children of Yisra’El; and I will bless them. (Numbers 6:22-27)
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known My Name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show Him my salvation. (Psalm 91:14-16)
