"What Is His Son's Name?
Surely You know!"
The author of Word Pictures / Mishlay / Proverbs 30:4 asked the penetrating question, "What is His Son's Name? Surely you know!"
Yahowsha is the Name of Yahowah's Son. It is pronounced yah-OH-shah and it means "Yah is salvation".
But what about that other name? What about Jesus? You might want to hold onto your seat cushion here.
- Jesus is a made-up name.
- Jesus appears nowhere in the original manuscripts, not even as Iesous. [See this]
- The name Jesus has no heavenly power whatsoever.
- The name Jesus means absolutely nothing.
Each one of those statements is 100% true. Every one of them is 100% accurate and correct. Moreover, not one of them can be disproved. They cannot even be rationally or intelligently argued against. And that just blows the religions of the Roman Catholic Church, Christianity, Mormonism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, the Seventh Day Adventists, and the Worldwide Church of God right out of the water.
Jesus is not the Name of the Son of Yahowah, the Creator of the heavens and earth. And rather than saving you, faith in the name of Jesus will cause your soul to be annihilated. Well, that's not precisely true. If you're promoting one of the religions based on that name, your soul won't die. You will be given eternal life, and then you will spend all of that eternal life in isolated lockdown, imprisoned with the rest of those foolish enough to be Yahowah's enemies.
Some of you might be protesting, "But I was miraculously transformed from being a really sorry excuse for a human being into a wonderful, kind, moral, and caring person when I cried out in the name of Jesus! And I have seen people miraculously healed in the name of Jesus! I just KNOW that He loves me and is the Truth!"
And I am telling you the truth when I emphatically state that you have been deceived. The Lord (Satan, the devil, the serpent, Allah, Buddha, Krishna, pick the name of your choice) can heal if it suits his purpose and if he gets Yahowah's permission to deceive therewith. And it definitely suits his purpose to lead people astray.
What, you didn't know that Yahowah lets the Lord and his demons deceive people? Oh, my. You'd better read the story of King Ahab.
Remember, free will is a gift, not a right. Yahowah will trump your free will when He has to, and when He does, it is almost never for your good. As we saw with King Ahab, when it suits God's purpose, He can and will issue the decree that a person be successfully deceived by a spirit they will not be able to resist. In Ahab's case, that spirit manipulated Ahab's religious priests to persuade the king that God was on his side and would prosper his self-aggrandizing plan. Ahab fell for the ploy and it cost him his physical life.
Acts of Power, Miracles, Etc. in Religion
It takes a lot to push Yahowah to such extremes, so the foregoing was not meant to frighten you or threaten you. I just don't want you to be tricked into thinking that just because something is spiritual, it's pleasing or acceptable to Yahowah. There are evil spirits. They are neither pleasing nor acceptable to Yahowah. They have been given permission to interact with those people who refuse to accept the terms and conditions of Yahowah's one and only Family-Oriented Covenant. That's just how it is. The Teachings, Prophets, and Songs confirm it.
So then, acts of spiritual power, miracles, supernatural deeds, and the like do occur in the name of Jesus. However, Christians, much to their chagrin, do not have a lock on miracles. The very same miracles occur in other religions, too. Christians are just loathe to acknowledge that fact because it weakens the self-superior structure of their irrational and easily debunked faith.
Certainly a miracle is evidence of a supernatural power at work. But an act of supernatural power is not evidence of the presence or approval of Yahowah, our Creator. So what if you were instantly delivered from drug addiction? So what if your cancer miraculously vanished? What will it profit you to gain complete sobriety and perfect health if you lose your soul? What good has been done if you are transformed into the perfect parent in the eyes of your family and this world if you end up passing your religious deceptions down to your kids, dragging them with you into the Pit? That's a good thing? I think not.
Miracles have their place in the Adversary's agenda.
Yahowsha warned us that deceivers would come and that they would do miracles and show other signs of "divine" power. The magicians in the courts of Pharaoh duplicated the miracles performed by Moshe and Aaron. Yahowah's adversary created a tornado and a wildfire to torment Yob (Job). The adversary claimed, and Yahowsha did not dispute it with him, that he can give whatever riches and glory he wants to whoever he wants. And you'll agree that the power to do miracles is a means to gain riches and a way to receive glory! Televangelists and their ilk demonstrate the truth of that claim.
Think about it.
So beware of putting stock in miracles, or of letting some experience you've had "in the name of Jesus" hold you back from accepting the evidences you are discovering here that explode the myths of your religion. Reject your religion and embrace Yahowah and His Towrah. Paul's anti-Towrah, Old Covenant/New Covenant teachings are not of Yahowah; they come from the father of lies. Walk away from your religion, even if it means being reviled by your family and friends. Put your hand into Yahowah's Hand. Walk with Yahowah by accepting the terms and conditions of His one and only family-oriented Covenant as described in His Towrah. For your convenience, here they are:
Yahowah's Family-Oriented Covenant
The Five Conditions
- Walk away from Babylon, from corruption, from confusion, from country, from politics, from patriotism, from religion, from one's earthly family.
- Trust and rely on Yahowah, which requires us to know Him and understand what He is offering by closely observing and carefully considering His Towrah.
- Walk to Yahowah and become perfect, which is achieved by accepting His 7 Invitations (participating in His 7 Feasts).
- Read the Covenant, coming to know and understand its Terms and Benefits so that we can respond appropriately.
- Those of us who are males are to be cirumcised. If we are parents, we are to circumcise our sons as a sign that we are committed to teaching them the Towrah and raising them to become part of Yah's family.
The Five Benefits
- Eternal Life (as a result of the promise of Passover)
- Perfection (and thus vindication and redemption) (as a result of the promise of Unleavened Bread)
- Adoption into Yah's Covenant Family (as a result of the promise of First Fruits)
- Enrichment and Enlightenment (receiving the Towrah and benefiting from its Teaching as a result of the promise of Seven Sabbaths)
- Empowerment (also part of the promise of Seven Sabbaths)
Yahowah's Seven Invitations
- Passover / Pesach – frees us from death, the penalty for our sins, allowing us to receive eternal life
- Unleavened Bread / Matsah – removes our sins from us, allowing us to draw near to Yahowah ("Walk to Me and become perfect!")
- First Fruits / Bikurim – Yahowah receives us into His Covenant Family
- Sevens / Shabuah – we are restored and renewed so that we are empowered to share the Word
- Trumpets / Taruah – we shout for joy and sound a warning
- Reconciliations / Kippurim – we are required to present ourselves to our spiritual Mother, the ruach qodesh, or Set-Apart Spirit
- Shelters / Sukah – we camp out with Yahowah
= יהוה = ee-ah-oh-ah = Yahowah
Song / Mizmor / Psalm 19:7
Yahowah's Towrah is complete and entirely perfect, returning and restoring the soul. Yahowah's testimony is trustworthy and reliable, making understanding and obtaining wisdom simple for the open-minded and receptive.
Yahowah's () Towrah (torah – teaching, guidance, direction, and instruction) is complete and entirely perfect (tamym – without defect, lacking nothing, correct, genuine, right, helpful, beneficial, and true), returning and restoring (suwb – transforming) the soul (nepesh – consciousness). Yahowah's testimony ('eduwth – restoring and eternal witness) is trustworthy and reliable ('aman – verifiable, confirming, supportive, and establishing), making understanding and obtaining wisdom (hakam – educating and enlightening oneself to the point of comprehension) simple for the open-minded and receptive (pethy – easy for those who are receptive).
The Death of Ahab
1 Kings / 1 Melekim / 1 Kings 22:1-40
They continued three years without war between Syria and Isra'el. It happened in the third year that Yehoshaphat, the king of Yahudah, came down to the king of Isra'el.
The king of Isra'el said to his servants, "You know that Ramoth Gilead is ours, and we are still, and don't take it out of the hand of the king of Syria?"
To Yehoshaphat he said, "Will you go with me to battle to Ramoth Gilead?"
Yehoshaphat said to the king of Isra'el, "I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses. Please inquire first for the word of Yahowah."
Then the king of Isra'el gathered the prophets together, about four hundred men, and said to them, "Shall I go against Ramoth Gilead to battle, or shall I forbear?"
They said, "Go up! For the Lord will deliver it into the hand of the king!"
But Yehoshaphat said, "Isn't there here a prophet of Yahowah, that we may inquire of him?"
The king of Isra'el said to Yehoshaphat, "There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of Yahowah, Mikayah the son of Imlah. But I hate him, for he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil."
Yehoshaphat said, "This is a king speaking?"
Then the king of Isra'el called an officer, and said, "Quickly! Fetch Mikayah, Imlah's son."
Now the king of Isra'el and Yehoshaphat, the king of Yahudah, were sitting each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, in an open place at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets were prophesying before them.
Zidkiyah the son of Kina'anah made horns of iron for himself, and said, "Thus says Yahowah, 'With these you shall push the Syrians, until they are consumed.' " All the prophets prophesied the same way, saying, "Go up to Ramoth Gilead, and prosper! For Yahowah will deliver it into the hand of the king!"
The messenger who went to call Mikayah spoke to him, saying, "Now look, the prophets declare good to the king with one mouth. Please let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak good."
Mikayah said, "As Yahowah lives, what Yahowah says to me, that I will speak."
When he had come to the king, the king said to him, "Mikayah, shall we go to Ramoth Gilead to battle, or shall we forbear?"
He answered him, "Go up and prosper! Yahowah will deliver it into the hand of the king!"
The king said to him, "How many times do I have to adjure you that you speak to me nothing but the truth in the Name of Yahowah?"
He [Mikayah] said, "I saw all Isra'el scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. Yahowah said, 'These have no master. Let them each return to his house in peace.' "
The king of Isra'el said to Yehoshaphat, "Didn't I tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?"
Mikayah said, "Therefore, hear the word of Yahowah!
"I saw Yahowah sitting on His throne, and all the army of heaven standing by Him on His right hand and on His left. Yahowah said, 'Who will entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth Gilead?'
"One said one thing, and another said another. A spirit came out and stood before Yahowah, and said, 'I will entice him.'
"Yahowah said to him, 'How?'
"He said, 'I will go out and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.'
"He [Yahowah] said, 'You will entice him, and you will also prevail. Go out and do so.'
"Now therefore, behold, Yahowah has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets: Yahowah has spoken evil concerning you!"
Then Zidkiyah the son of Kina'anah came near, and struck Mikayah on the cheek, and said, "Which way did the Spirit of Yahowah go from me to speak to you?"
Mikayah said, "Behold, you will see on that day, when you go into an inner room to hide yourself."
The king of Isra'el said, "Take Mikayah, and carry him back to Amon, the governor of the city, and to Yoash, the king's son. Say, 'Thus says the king, "Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread and water of affliction, until I come in peace." ' "
Mikayah said, "If you return at all in peace, Yahowah has not spoken by me. Listen, all you people!"
So the king of Isra'el and Yehoshaphat, the king of Yahudah, went up to Ramoth Gilead. The king of Isra'el said to Yehoshaphat, "I will disguise myself, and go into the battle; but you put on your robes."
The king of Isra'el disguised himself, and went into the battle.
Now the king of Syria had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, "Fight neither with small nor great, except only with the king of Isra'el."
It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw Yehoshaphat, that they said, "Surely that is the king of Isra'el!" And they turned aside to fight against him. Yehoshaphat cried out. It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Isra'el, that they turned back from pursuing him.
A certain man drew his bow at random and struck the king of Isra'el between the joints of the armor. So he said to the driver of his chariot, "Turn your hand and carry me out of the battle, for I am severely wounded."
The battle increased that day. The king was propped up in his chariot facing the Syrians, and died at evening. The blood ran out of the wound into the bottom of the chariot. A cry went throughout the army about the going down of the sun, saying, "Every man to his city, and every man to his country!"
So the king died and was brought to Samaria, and they buried the king in Samaria. They washed the chariot by the pool of Samaria, where the prostitutes washed themselves, and the dogs licked up his blood according to the word of Yahowah which He spoke.
Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he built, and all the cities that he built, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Isra'el? So Ahab slept with his fathers, and his son, Ahazyahu, reigned in his place.
Yahowah's prophecy regarding the death of Ahab
1 Kings / Melekim / Kings 21:16-19
It happened, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Isra'elite, to take possession of it.
The word of Yahowah came to Eliyah the Tishbite, saying, "Arise, go down to meet Ahab, king of Isra'el, who dwells in Samaria. Behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone down to take possession of it. You shall speak to him, saying, 'Thus says Yahowah, "Have you killed and also taken possession? In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs will lick your blood, even yours." ' "
