For whosoever shall call upon the name of Yahweh shall be saved (Rom 10:13). Because of the lying pen of the scribes, this essential teaching is all but ignored by most preachers and their congregations.
Pro 18:10 The name of Yahweh is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it and are safe
It shall come to pass, at the end of this age, that those who call upon the name of Yahweh shall be saved (Joel 2:32).
Pro 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but Yahweh measures their hearts
In a recent online search for the phrase, call upon the name of Yahweh, I did find the name of Yahweh mentioned in a few posts but I found the theology to be alarming.
Included for your perusal are snippets from two articles (listed as 1a & 1b, and 2a & 2b, below). My comments are in the bullet points below these strange comments.
1b- Answer: Many people speak the Name of Jesus in vain. The third commandment is to not take the Name of the Lord in vain (Exodus 20:7). This applies to any name or title for God and also for Jesus, the divine Son of God. We are not to misuse His holy Name in any way, for it demonstrates that we do not take Him seriously. This is dangerous. Our speech is a reflection of our hearts—and abusing His Name shows that our hearts are not right with God.
- The third commandment states that we are not to takes Yahweh’s name in vain. But what exactly does this mean? Well by replacing the name of Yahweh with the title of Lord, is to take His name in vain. To misuse Yahweh’s Holy name would be to change it to Adonai or Lord.
- Thou shalt not take the name of Yahweh thy God in vain; for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain (Exo 20:7).
- This writer compares the name of Jesus, to that of the Lord (which when properly transliterated is Yahweh). It is also suggested that God (another title) has many names, which is absolutely false. Indeed this is a very dangerous teaching.
- Many teach that the name of Yahweh is to sacred to be spoken. This is a direct violation of what Yahweh commanded (Gen 4:26, 1 Kings 18:24, Psa 99:6, 105:1, 145:3).
- And so, the lying pen of the scribes disobeyed Yahweh, and named the Creator Lord, God and Adonai.
- The religion of Christianity is influenced by Judaism, and few comprehend that the Savior is Yahweh revealed in the flesh.
2b- “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
- Is this Biblical answer website suggesting that Jesus and Yahweh are the Lord, or are they two separate Lords? If one Lord, how is it they both have completely different names?
- The answer is simple, and Scriptural. Messiah is the physical image of Yahweh, and could not be named Jesus (John 1:29-31, 1 Tim 3:16, 1 Pet 1:19-20, Col 1:15).
- The actual name that replaces the false title of “the Lord” is obviously Yahweh (as seen throughout the Old Testament). How then can Jesus be Yahweh? This would equate to a heresy, even according to the Christian faith. And so, this also negates the plausibility of the trinity being a realistic doctrine.
- The trinity teaches One God in three persons. In the KJV, one of these persons is named Jesus (and called the Lord Jesus several hundred times). The other, who is called the Father, remains nameless in that He is called the Lord, but not Yahweh.
- Lord Jehovah is found two times in the Old Testament, but Yahweh Jehovah is an impossible transliteration, as is Jehovah (that is also used twice).
- If Jesus and Yahweh are both addressed as Lord God, then this is two God’s we’re talking about. Two persons, who both claim to be God, can not become a singular God, it’s just not Biblical (John 20:28, Acts 3:22, Deut 18:15-19).
- No one can truly call upon the name of the Lord. But we can call upon the name of Yahweh.
Isa 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for Yahweh hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me
Praise the name of Yahweh
What I do know is this, my God did not need another God to raise Himself from the dead.
I’m also quite certain that my God and Savior who is called the Messiah, does not sit at the right hand of another God.
The correct interpretation of the phrase, the Lord said unto my Lord, will expose the truth that Yahweh can not be called Lord.
Also what is declared in Rom 10:13, John 2:19, Joel 2:32, and Isa 43:11 will refute what is written in Rom 10:9.
And finally, in order for the one called Messiah to be the Savior, He must also be Yahweh (Isa 45:21).
Luke 2:10 Then the angel said to them, do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people
What were the Angel’s good tidings of great joy, shared with those shepherds, who were nigh unto Bethlehem?
Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David the Savior, which is Christ the Lord
Yahweh alone is Savior of the elect, that are sealed with His Spirit. The promised Messiah (who is given a false title of Christ) is actually Yahweh manifest in the flesh, the mighty one spoken of in the Old Testament. Lord is also a false title, that is reserved for men alone – it is not to be used when addressing the Almighty Yahweh.
Psa 148:13 Praise the name of Yahweh; for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven
The preaching (or good tidings) by the Angel unto the shepherds, was a declaration that the birth of this child (who would be called the Messiah), would bring great joy to all. The great joy, which shall be to all people (representing both Old & New Testament saints alike) is summarized in Luke 2:11.
For I say unto you, today the Savior is born in the city of David who is Yahweh the Messiah (Luke 2:11).
The Son who came forth from the Father, is called the Messiah, but that is not His name.
He is given many titles, such as Immanuel, Messiah (falsely translated as Christ), Son of the Highest, and the Everlasting Father who is faithful and true. He is also our Savior (Luke 1:47, Jude 1:25).
Pro 19:23 The fear of Yahweh leads to life, and he that continues therein shall be satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil
However, His Eternal name will always be Yahweh (Isa 9:6, Rev 1:4, 8, 4:8).
Psa 116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD (H3068)
Yahweh A Name Above All Others
- Yahweh commands His children to call upon His name.
- Contrary to carnal teachings, the God who created all things has a singular name which is Yahweh.
- Lord is a title, it is not a name, and Yahweh can never be called, or referred to as Lord.
- The only transliteration of H3068 is Yahweh, a name can not be replaced by a title.
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and call upon the name of Yahweh (Psa 116:17).
Mat 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name
- Consider Mat 6:9 for additional context. How can one pray to the Father without knowing or using his name.
- Many religious people pray using titles such as Lord, Father, and God; very few ever pray in the name of Yahweh.
- How did we get so far off track?
- What are the consequences (to both the translators and the listeners) for omitting Yahweh’s name? Again, consider the following scriptures when they are properly transliterated (Rom 10:13, Joel 2:32, and Isa 43:11). The first two verses are included at the beginning of this study guide.
Isa 43:11 I am Yahweh, and beside me there is no savior
We are called to praise the name of Yahweh, who created the Heavens and the Earth. The title of Lord , does not represent the Glorious name of Yahweh, and should be avoided. The same can be said for the word Christ.
How many who study the Word, are even aware that the word Lord, which is a title, can only refer to men. The etymology or root word of the Greek word kyrios, (G2962) is from kuros which has a meaning of supremacy. The word kyrios, translated as Lord in English, is not derived from the original Hebrew name of Yahweh. This represents a criminal act, that much is for sure! We must always call upon the name of Yahweh.
Luke 2:13-14 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising Yahweh also, saying “Glory to Yahweh in the highest, and on earth peace, and goodwill toward men”
The Heavenly Host were praising Yahweh that was manifest in the flesh on that glorious day.
Yahweh is with us, is the correct interpretation of Immanuel (Isa 7:14, Mat 1:23).
Luke 2:21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called, _ _ _ _ _ _ which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb
Luke 2:21 And <G2532> when <G3753> eight <G3638> days <G2250> were accomplished <G4130> for the circumcising <G4059> of the child <G3813>, <G2532> his <G846> name <G3686> was called <G2564> JESUS <G2424>, which <G3588> was so named <G2564> of <G5259> the angel <G32> before <G4253> he <G846> was conceived <G4815> in <G1722> the womb <G2836>
The translation of Luke 2:21, is problematic for many reasons. This child born to a virgin, being Yahweh manifest in the flesh, chose to reveal Himself in or with the name of Yahweh. Nobody named the Creator, and although he was called by several titles, those are not names.
- We have already discovered in Luke 2:11, and Isa 9:6, that the Messiah’s name is Yahweh.
How then does David in the spirit call his Messiah Yahweh, if He is the Son of David (Mat 22:42-45)?
- Blessed is he that cometh in (or with) the name of Yahweh (Mat 21:9). See also Mat 23:39, Mar 11:9, Luk 13:35, John 12:13.
- And these scriptures lead us to the essential truth found in Acts 2:21.
- And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved (Acts 2:21, Joel 2:32, Rom 10:13).
The word name (G3686), can also be in reference to a title that one is given, or ones rank or authority. It also refers to the cause or reason one is called by a name or title. A good example is found in Mat 1:23, and they shall call his name Immanuel. A better translation would be, and for this reason they shall cry out, or declare, Immanuel (Yahweh with us).
But all these things will they do unto you for my (name’s G3686) sake, because they know not from whence I am sent (John 15:21).
Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh with the name (G3686) of Yahweh
To be called (G2564), can also be translated as announce or declare (sometimes with a loud voice), as well as named (when used with G3686). See the verses below for context.
Mat 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall (call G2564) his name Immanuel, which being interpreted is, Yahweh with us
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called (G2564) the Son of the Highest
Mat 22:43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call (G2564) his Messiah Yahweh, saying…
In Luke 1:13, an Angel speaks to Zacharias regarding his son, thou shalt call his name John. However, it is an utter absurdity to suggest that an Angel named the Savior Jesus before he was conceived, or before he came forth from the Father. Where pray tell can one find a singular Old Testament scripture to back up this wild claim?
Yahweh’s Name can’t be Translated
Luke 1:35 …the Holy One which shall be born of thee shall be (called G2564) the Son of Yahweh
The righteous shall be called the sons of Yahweh (Rom 8:14). This is indeed an awesome title, however it is not a personal name (1 John 3:1). But most certainly, his children shall call upon the name of Yahweh.
Rev 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him (was called G2564) Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name (is called G2564) the Word of Yahweh
The word Christ is an English translation of a Greek transliteration, of a Greek word (G5547 christos). It is not derived from the Hebrew word for Messiah.
Our Savior is to be called the Messiah, not the Christ. The etymology, or origin of the transliterated Hebrew word Mashiyach, is from H4899 מָשִׁיחַ. An acceptable English translation would be Messiah, but it would not be Christ.
Luk 2:26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ
It was revealed unto Simeon, by the Holy Spirit, that he would not die until he had seen Yahweh (as) Messiah (Luke 2:26).
Lord and Christ represent an impossible transliteration, and translation. Also, Christ is not a person apart from the Lord. Better said, Yahweh does not present a Messiah to the world, He is the Messiah.
Knowing that from Yahweh, ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve Yahweh the Messiah (Col 3:24).
This promise unto Simeon, was fulfilled when he beheld the child, who is Yahweh the Savior (1 Tim 2:3, Jude 1:25). Simeon saw the One who was his salvation (Luke 2:30). Yahweh’s Spirit dwelt with Simeon, and he would be very much aware of the Old Testament scriptures wherein Yahweh declared that He alone was Savior.
Isa 43:3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
Call upon Jesus to be Saved
Strong’s G 2424 claims that Ἰησοῦς is transliterated as Iesous. It is also stated that the KJV translates Strong’s G2424 as Jesus and Joshua. The etymology, or origin of this word translated into English as Jesus, is apparently of Hebrew origin יְהוֹשׁוּעַ (H3091) and that word is transliterated as Yehowshuwa, which has it’s etymology, or origin from יְהֹוָה (H3068) and יָשַׁע (H3467). which then is translated to Joshua with a meaning of Jehovah is salvation. Can you follow this distorted and illogical so-called etymology?
Names are to be transliterated they are not translated, and the so-called name of Jesus is not a transliteration of any Hebrew name. We know that Messiah pre existed before Abraham – how is it then that this name Jesus is not mentioned in the Old Testament?
- Our great redeemer has a name above all other names, this can not be said of Joshua (H3091).
- The Savior, who is Yahweh manifest in the flesh, would share His name with Joshua.
- Our Messiah came forth with the Father’s name, and that glorious name is Yahweh. This Joshua did not do (John 5:43, Math 21:9).
- It is impossible for Jesus and Joshua to both be translations of a singular Hebrew name, as some would suggest.
The name of Yehoshua (H3091), if that is the correct transliteration, can not then be translated into the name Joshua, and certainly not Jesus.
Look unto the One that saves, all the ends of the earth: for I am Yahweh, and there is none else (Isa 43:11, 45:22, Zec 9:9). Messiah is Yahweh, or else He can not be the Savior. Our Savior and Messiah is Yahweh, and no one else can save mankind from their sins.
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved
Phil 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
It shall come to pass, at the end of this age, that those who call upon the name of Yahweh shall be delivered (Joel 2:32).
Zep 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may call upon the name of Yahweh, to serve him with one consent
And that every tongue should confess that Yahweh is the Messiah, thus glorifying Yahweh the Father (Phl 2:11).
Yahweh, who many times and in different ways spoke in times past unto the fathers through His prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us through the Son, who was preordained heir of all things, by whom also the worlds were made. Who is the brightness of the glory of Yahweh, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, He himself purged our sins, and now dwells as the right hand of majesty on high (Heb 1:1-3, Jude 1:25, Mat 1:23, 13:41, 14:33, 16:16, 18:11, 21:9, 24:30, 25:31, 26:64).
Our Savior dwells as the right hand of Yahweh – He does not sit at the right hand of God!
Call upon the name of Yahweh, for there is none other name from heaven given unto men, by which we must be saved.
