The Creator's Name—יהוה
A basic truth which has been kept away from us by religion is that our Father's Name is Yahowah. The Creator's Name is not "the LORD". In fact, if you'll remember from earlier articles in this series, "the Lord", or ha ba'al as it is in Hebrew, is Satan's title, as in Baal-Zeebub, which means "Lord of the Flies".
Nor is the Almighty's Name God. God is a title, not a name.
His Name is not Jehovah, because the letter "J", and the sound of the letter "J", did not exist in Paleo-Hebrew, Hebrew, Aramaic, or Koine Greek. In fact, the letter "J" and the sound of the letter "J" are just a few hundred years old. Neither did Hebrew have a "v" sound until the self-proclaimed and self-appointed "rabbis" (meaning "exalted ones") changed Yahowah's native language circa 1948 to suit their ends.
The Creator's Name is not Adonai, because "Adonai" is not a name; it is another Hebrew title and it means "sovereign, owner, or master". Nor is His Name ha Shem. "ha shem" are literally just two Hebrew words which mean "the name". For example, if someone were speaking Hebrew and they said what in English would be, "The name of that town is Austin," they would use the Hebrew words "ha shem", "the name". Wooooo! Big "sacred" mystery right there, huh! Ridiculously religious "Jews" will say with deeply affected "reverence" something like, "Ha Shem commands us to keep the Shabbat," thinking themselves to have spoken with great authority and Heavenly approval. They have never been more wrong. The Creator's Name is not The Name. His Name is Yahowah. He said so Himself.
Religious clerics of the Judeo-Christian faiths have deliberately misrepresented the Master's true Name. They have purposely lied to their congregations. The truth is right there in front of them, they take their pay from their prey to provide that truth, and they themselves haughtily reject and hide that very truth, opting instead to pander their religious dogma, their Satanic lies, their clergy-laity heresy.
Yahowah revealed His Name to us reportedly 7,000 times in the Tanak (the TorAh, NAbi'im [Prophets], and Katubim [Writings], errantly referred to as the "Old Testament"). He wants us to know His Name; He wants us to use His Name; He wants us to call upon His Name; and He wants us to declare His Name to others.
Many rabbis, priests, pastors, and other clerics know the Creator's Name, but they have deliberately kept His Name hidden from the world, a tradition which they and their predecessors have faithfully kept for thousands of years. In 2008 the Vatican even went so far as to declare that it is illegal to use Yahowah's Name in their liturgies.
Whenever translators for the major publishing houses see "Yahowah" (יהוה) in the ancient Hebrew texts, they "translate" it as "the Lord" rather than properly transliterating the Name into Yahowah, which is the only honest way to do it. They have no reason to hide His Name other than their desire to conform to man's tradition. The tradition to which they are conforming has no foundation whatsoever in Yahowah's written testimonies. It is based solely on a decision by the rabbis of long ago that the Creator's Name is too "sacred" to be uttered, or that it might be spoken in a less than appropriate manner (as if that were possible). Since the enemy of our souls does not want us to know or call upon the only Name that can save us, we can be certain that he has a heavy hand in all these dishonest and deliberately deceptive translation practices.
By the way, "sacred" is one of those terms foisted upon us by religion, and religion is a burden laid upon our shoulders by the adversary and his human agents. Most often, when you see the English word "sacred" in the Towrah, Prophets, and Writings, it is taken from a Hebrew or Greek word meaning "set apart". That's it. No religious mumbo-jumbo, no heavenly secrets that only "ordained" clergymen can know and understand. It means "set apart". So your computer would be "sacred" if you only ever used it for a specific purpose. Similarly, the term "holy to the LORD" is supposed to mean "set apart for Yahowah's exclusive use", but it really means "set apart to Ba'al for his exclusive use". As for why educated men who know the true meaning would continue to draw a salary from your wallet while purposely deceiving you and keeping the truth from you, I will let you figure that out on your own. Here's a hint from Yahowsha: "They love the chief seats in the synagogues and to be greeted in the marketplace."
Our righteous Father, disdaining the wickedness of religious men and women, is seeing to it that His great Name is once again spoken aloud and proclaimed without shame by His true followers.
The Son's Name—יהושע
We also learn that the Ma'aseyah's Name is not "Jesus Christ". The Name of the Son of Yahowah is Yahowsha. "Yahowsha" means "Yah saves", or "the salvation of Yah". "Yah" is Yahowah's Name in a commonly abbreviated and completely acceptable form; it can be found in many Hebrew names such as Yashayah (Isaiah), Yirmeyah (Jeremiah), Zekaryah (Zechariah), Eliyah (Elijah), etc. Unfortunately, English translators of the Hebrew texts traditionally refuse to transliterate Hebrew names. The loss to us is great in that we lose touch with the importance of our Father's Name throughout His Towrah, Prophets, and Songs.
As for the name Jesus Christ, it is man-made. The Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin languages had/have no letter or sound for "J". In fact, the letter "J", and the sound for the letter "J", did not appear in any language in the world prior to the 1600's, a fact you can easily verify with any reliable dictionary. So, yes, just like the song says, there really is just something about that name, Jesus: it is not the Name of the Son of our God, Yahowah, and it won't save anybody, ever. Yes, I have heard the stories of very strong and striking miracles being performed in the name of Jesus, of lives being remarkably changed once the person believed in that name. I was one of those stories myself, as I pointed out earlier. Once Yahowah taught me the truth about His Son's Name, though, I dropped the use of JC like it was a hot potato. And you know what? It feels like all hell broke loose against my wife and me. But Yahowah has borne us up through all of it. We're still standing.
Stop using religion's made-up name, Jesus Christ, when you refer to Yahowah's Son, Yahowsha. It's disrespectful.

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).
When we transliterate a name, we sound it out using letters from our own language (which in my case is American English). So my Heavenly Father's Name, which in Hebrew is spelled yod-heh-waw-heh, could be spelled Yahowah in English and pronounced, ee-AH-oh-ah, or Yahowah. We could even spell it like Noah, replacing the "N" with "Ya" or even "Ia": Yaoah, or Iaoah. We would still have the same resulting sound, because in English we blend together the "ee" and "ah" at the beginning of His Name, so that "ee-ah" becomes "Yah".
It really is just that simple.
