The Sacred Name & Character of the Father & the Son
By Maria Merola

There is a common response that I hear lately that says that we do not need to pronounce the actual literal name of our Heavenly Father or the Messiah’s name. They say that we need only know of his character and that is what we are declaring. However, there are several flaws with this line of thinking.

First of all, let us understand the correct way to interpret scripture. There are four layers of understanding scripture in Hebrew thought. There is the Remez, the Drash, the P’shat and the Sod. Yahu’shua Messiah said that the greatest commandment is to love YHWH with our whole heart, mind, soul, and strength. This represents four aspects of our being (intellect, spirit, emotions, body), hence four layers of applying scripture.

We ALWAYS start with the literal application of scripture (the P’shat). And then we go deeper to the other levels as the Holy Spirit opens up these other layers to us. We never skip to the most deep mystical application while ignoring the other applications of scripture. When people do this, this is a form of Gnosticism. Gnosticism only applies the spiritual or allegory to scripture and never applies the literal meaning. That type of interpretation leads to people saying that the story of Noah’s Ark and Jonah and the Whale are allegories and they did not really happen. That is what this type of interpretation leads to if we skip the literal (P’shat) and go straight for the deeper level of understanding (Sod). It leads to believing that Messiah Yahu’shua did not come in human flesh, but that he came as a Spirit only. That is Gnosticism! (See 1st John 4:3 in KJV).

People who use this type of logic are ignoring the literal application of scripture and skipping to the “Sod” level of the commandment to “call upon the name of YHWH” in order to be saved.

If calling upon his character were enough, we could then rationalize that since one of his characteristics is “Love” then I can call upon “Love” and pray to “Love” instead of the actual name of YaHuWaH himself!

Then the commandment to call upon his name could then mean that one could say “Love, I call upon you to please save me by your character which is Love.”

The commandment to Call upon the Name” of YaHuWaH is both literal as well as knowing his heart and character. Using just the phonetics of his name but not knowing his heart and character will not lead to salvation. And yet, knowing only his character and never calling upon his literal name does not lead to salvation either because even Satan can come as an Angel of Light (2nd Corinthians 11:14) and he can pretend to have all of the same characteristics as our Heavenly Father (Love, Joy, Peace, Gentleness, Kindness, Faithfulness).

The Anti-Messiah will pretend to have those same characteristics but he will say that the name is not important. The man called “Maitreya Buddha” who is now appearing all over the world especially to Muslims, is called “the Imam Mahdi” to Muslims. To those who take the Mark of the Beast, he will be known as “Maitreya Buddha” to Buddhists. He will be called “the Christ” to Apostate Christians, and he will be called “Mashiyach” by Apostate Jews. Satan loves Anonymity! He loves to work behind a mask and be very vague! That is one of his best strategies! He can come in so many names so that he can be relevant to every one!

And so to those who say that we are only to call upon his character and not his literal name, it means “both”, that Messiah has come in his Father’s literal name (John 5:43) as YaHuWaH means “I am he who exists” and the son’s name YaHuW’shuwa means “YaHuWaH brings salvation.”

The name of the Father and the Son go hand in hand with their character, and you cannot separate the two.

Every Letter in the Pictograph Hebrew illustrates something about his character. That is why the letters are called “characters”:

Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey means: “Hand, Behold, Nail, Behold!”

Here is what these letters look like from right to left in Ancient Paleo Hebrew:

Yod = Y sound
Hey = ah sound
Waw = oo sound or long u sound
Hey = ah sound
Pronounced as: Y-ah-oo-ah

And so to say that his name is not important is wrong. Both his literal name and his character are important. They go hand in hand. That is why the Noahite Laws say that any so-called Gentile who pronounces the name shall be decapitated. In Judaism, if a person believes in Messiah YaHuW'shuwa, they are considered a Gentile and not a Jew. Therefore to believe in Messiah and use his name and his Father's name buys you a ticket to the Guillotine!

Not important? Hmmmm.... why then does Satan care enough to kill us over this?

The Four Layers of Interpreting Scripture in Hebrew Thought

1.)P’shat Level: The P’shat level is the plain sense of the text. What does it actually say? Every word, phrase, and thought has a meaning, there is no word that is redundant or idle. Even if it appears to be, it is not. It is filled with meaning for us to learn. (Physical or literal application)

2.)Drash Level: The Drash level is where truth and principle are presented. Truth can only be truth if it is confirmed. Confirmation as we know must come in the form of evidence and evidence must be at least two or three witnesses. (Intellectual, or rational)

3.)Remez Level: The Remez level is the underlying theme or story that is told while speaking of other things. It is how prophecy is laid into the story of history. This level shows the plan for Yashua’s redemption and restoration. (Emotional application or parables we can relate to)

4.)Sod Level: The Sod level is the mysterious and coded level. This involves the understanding of numbers along with the meaning associated with certain numerical values. For example, the number 1 represents “Echad” or Oneness, “Two” represents struggle, division or witness, etc. This level also involves the meanings of names. (Spiritual application or metaphor, allegory)

The word “character” comes from a Greek word:

#5480. charagma khar'-ag-mah from the same as 5482; a scratch or etching, i.e. stamp (as a badge of servitude), or scupltured figure (statue):--graven, mark.

It means a literal scratch or etching of handwriting! It does not mean a personality trait or a person’s spiritual attributes.

All 22 Letters in the Hebrew Alphabet are called “characters” for a good reason! Because in Ancient Paleo Hebrew Letters, every letter is a “pictograph” and every letter literally paints a picture of Messiah. Here are the letters that spell Joshua in Ancient Hebrew:

Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin.

In Zechariah 6, we read a Messianic prophecy about the man who is prophetically called “the Branch” elsewhere in prophecy (Isaiah 4:2, Jeremiah 3:15, John 15:4):

Zechariah 6:

11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of YaHuW’shuwa (Joshua) the son of Josedech, the high priest;

12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh YaHuWaH of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of YaHuWaH:

13 Even he shall build the temple of YaHuWaH; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

The Strong’s Hebrew Concordance shows us these 6 Letters to his name in bold letters. The other letters were added by the Masorites in the 10th Century:

# 3091 Yhowshuwa` yeh-ho-shoo'-ah or Yhowshua {yeh-ho-shoo'-ah}; from 3068 and 3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader:--Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare 1954, 3442.

You will notice that the name of the Son contains the letters of the Father plus two added letters, the “shin” which means “tooth” and the “ayin” which means “the eye.”

Yod = (Yad) the hand
Hey = Breath, Revelation, Inspiration, Wind
Vav (Waw) = the nail
Shin = the tooth
Vav (Waw) = the nail
Ayin = the eye

As you can see, every letter in his literal name spells out his character.

Messiah’s Character Seen in the Spelling of his Name

The Yod: the hand or the arm:
This term “the arm of YaHuWaH” or “the hand of YaHuWaH” is an idiom repeated over and over again in the scriptures. This phrase is a picture of strength and power, pointing to Yahu’shua the Messiah. It was the arm of YHWH that conquered Pharaoh and his army. And the psalmist declared, “You scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm” (Psalm 89:10). The arm of YHWH brings deliverance and victory. Whenever you read about the hand or arm of YHWH in the Bible, this is prophetically referring to person of Yahu’shua. Our Heavenly Father has no image of his own for he is invisible. He can only be seen through the “image of the son” hence he has no “right arm” of his own, but his “right arm” is Messiah’s right arm.

Our Messiah is seated at the “right hand of power” or “the right hand of Elohim (God)” and this is a Hebrew idiom that denotes power and strength.

Mark 14:62 And Yahu’shua said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Luke 22:69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of Elohiym.

Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

1st Peter 3:22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of Elohiym (God); angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Deuteronomy 26:8 And YHWH brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders:

Psalm 136:12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Jeremiah 32:17 Ah YaHuWaH Elohiym! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:

Ezekiel 20:34 And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.

The Hey: the Breath or Inspiration of YHWH
This Hebrew Letter resembles a person lifting up his arms to praise Yah and it also resembles the Messiah’s arms being stretched out to save us as his hands were nailed to the tree.

Elohiym (God) breathed into Adam “the breath of life” (Genesis 2:7) and we know that our Messiah is YHWH who came as the “last Adam” in the likeness of sinful man (1st Corinthians 15:45). The Hebrew letter “Hey” means “behold” or to “look upon.”
The Strong's Hebrew Concordance shows the meaning of this Hebrew Letter:

#1887 he' hay a primitive particle; lo!:--behold, lo.

We can see that the Father’s image of the Son will be “looked upon” in Zechariah 12:10 when the House of Judah will “behold the lamb” who takes away the sin of the world!

The Waw (Vav) = the “nail” or “tent peg”
Another letter in both YaHuWaH and YaHuW’shuwa’s name is the Vav. This letter resembles a hook and means “nail.” The vav is also the 6th letter in the Hebrew alphabet, (the number of man). Yahu’shua came as the Son of Man. He is YHWH in the flesh. What does the vav teach us about Yahu’shua? Remember that Hebrew letters are pictures and symbols. The connection in these letters is apparent. Yahu’shua (the yod) came as the son of man (the vav) to offer His life as a sacrifice. His hands (yod) were pierced by a nail (vav) to bring salvation.

Yahu’shua was crucified through his hands and feet, as prophesied in Psalm 22:16 – “The assembly of the wicked have enclosed me. They have pierced my hands and my feet.” The letters in Yahu’shua’s name foretell His death. The fact that the nail can also mean “a tent peg” alludes to the fact that Messiah died for “the Two Houses of Yisra’el” and both houses are thought to be “tents” in ancient Hebrew thought. The House of Ephrayim and the House of YaHuW’daH (Judah) are going to be brought together into “one stick” or “one tree” according to the prophecy in Ezekiel 37:15-19.

Pictured here is the first and last letter of the Paleo Hebrew Alphabet called “the Aleph & Tav.” It is a picture of the sacrificial animal (the ox head) being nailed to the cross. Messiah is the “Aleph & Tav” meaning “the first and the last” and also “the beginning and the ending.” (Revelation 1:8; 1:11; 21:6;22:13). The last letter, “the Tav” is shaped like a cross because it means that we must come to the “end” of ourselves and die to the old selfish nature. The Greek word stauros (cross) literally means "self-denial" which is why the Apostle Paul spoke often of preaching the "message of the cross." What he meant was the message of self-denial---not an object that people wear around their necks, and not something to be worshiped or bowed down to.

The son of Yisra’el who received the firstborn status of the sons of Yisra'el is Ephrayim yet Judah was bioloically and chronologically born before Ephrayim. Technically, Judah is the older brother, and yet Jacob made each one of them the "tribal leaders" over the two families (Genesis 48:14-18, Jeremiah 31:9).

As we can see, the last letter in the Hebrew Alphabet known as the “Tav” or “Taw” is in the shape of a “cross” for the Two Houses of Yisra’el. Our Messiah was crucified on "two sticks" for his hands (symbolizing the horizontal relationship with one another) and his feet (symbolizing our vertical relationship with the Father). The two greatest commandments involve first loving YHWH (vertical) and then loving others as we love ourselves (horizontal). Interestingly, the Hebrew word in Ezekiel 37:16 for "sticks" is "ets" which means "trees." And so Messiah was nailed to a Taw (Tav) which was made out of Two Trees or Two Sticks for the Two Houses of Yisra'el!

The Apostle Paul even confirmed this in his letter to the Ephesians:

Ephesians 2:

14 For he is our peace, who hath made both (houses) one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain (two) one new man, so making peace;

16 And that he might reconcile both (houses) unto  Elohiym in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Messiah has reconciled Ephrayim & Yahudah, Jew & Gentile by the Tav or Cross!

Later on in history, the pagans hi-jacked this symbol and used it for the cross of Tammuz and Mithra. But before the foundations of the world YaHuWaH had ordained this letter the "Tav" to be the mark that he marks his elect with in the foreheads (See Ezekiel 9, Revelation 7). All those who receive a "mark" in their foreheads receive the "Tav."

Creation Testifies to the Taw or "Cross" of our Messiah

Pictured here is a "Laminin" cell that looks like a cross!
Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every human and animal tissue. You see, laminins are what hold us together---LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. If you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you will see!

The Body of Messiah (The Two Houses of Yisrael) are literally held together by his one sacrifice on the Taw or Cross!

And so Messiah embodies the Two Houses of Yisra’el by becoming as the “last” at his first coming (Messiah ben Joseph), but then he resurrected and became “the first born” over all creation (Colossians 1:15) and he will return as the “first” as Messiah ben David at his second coming. He will then bring back together the Two Houses of Yisra’el as the “first and the last.” There will no longer be competition in his house because both Houses will be one stick, (one olive tree) when the remnant of these two Houses are born again into incorruption, they will both be his “first born” as Yisra’el.

There is no other name given unto man for salvation. But why did he have to die such a cruel death? This question is also answered in His name.

Yahu’shua came to offer His life as the remedy to sin and death.

The Shin = the tooth
The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has teeth that will gnash upon the wicked at his return. He will rescue his sheep out of the mouth of the impostor (Satan who comes like a roaring Lion). Messiah’s teeth are likened unto a flock of his sheep because they feed upon the nourishment of his word and chew upon the spiritual food that brings nourishment to the soul.

Song of Solomon 4:2 Thy teeth are like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which came up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins, and none is barren among them.

Here is a prophesy about the House of Jacob (the elect of YHWH) and the men of Israel and though they may feel helpless like a “worm” against their enemies, YHWH will come and redeem them through his son YaHuW'shuwa and he will make them as an instrument that has teeth that they may thresh the mountains (the impossible situations).

Song of Solomon 6:6 Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep which go up from the washing, whereof every one beareth twins, and there is not one barren among them.

Isaiah 41:

14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith YHWH, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

15 Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.

The Ayin: the eye
Messiah teaches us with his Torah (instructions) and he guides his sheep with his watchful eye:

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will  guide thee with mine eye.  

Psalm 33:18 Behold, the eye of YHWH is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy.
What is theeye of YaHuWaH”?  It is the Messiah’s eye! Remember that YaHuWaH has no image of his own for he is invisible. He can only be seen in the image of the son YaHuW'shuwa. Yahushua’s body contains the “fullness” of the divinity of YaHuWaH (Colossians 2:9)

Revelation 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

Revelation 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of Elohiym, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

When Messiah returns he will take vengeance on the enemies of his elect:

Job 16:9 He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.

As it was done to his beloved bride, so shall it be done to those who persecuted her. Our Messiah is coming with teeth like a Lion and eyes like a flame of fire to execute justice and avenge the blood of his saints.

Now we can see that we must call upon his literal name for Salvation because in his literal name contains his character!

Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Yisra’el shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, YaHuWaH OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Jeremiah 33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, YaHuWaH our righteousness.

Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of YaHuWaH shall be saved.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of YaHuWaH shall be saved.

Can People Be Saved Calling Upon the Name Jesus?

The answer to that question is “yes.” Back in 2007, I had been praying and asking Abba Father "what name shall I call you and what name shall I call upon for salvation?" I was confused about whether or not the Greco-Roman name of "Jesus" was really from Zeus or not. I had heard the arguments on both sides and I was not really sure what to believe about this. But the Holy Spirit taught me a very profound truth when I asked him about this.

What he revealed to me was many patterns in scripture that show that the prophets of old were given the names of false pagan deities while in exile (Esther, Joseph, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego). But this was only so that they could be relevant to their pagan cultures and do mighty exploits for the Elohiym of Yisra’el. But then came the moment of truth, when their true identity and the identity of the one whom they served had to be revealed.  Esther went “incognito” in the Persian Palace in order to save her people. She took on the name “Easter” the name of a pagan fertility goddess from Babylon (Easter). But later on it was revealed that she was from the House of YaHuW’daH (Judah) and her real name is Hadassah.

The Hebrew name for Joseph is actually YaHuW’ceph because his name actually has the name of our Heavenly Father in it. But his true Hebrew name was hidden for a time as he was given a heathen Egyptian name:

Genesis 41:45 And Pharaoh called YaHuW’ceph (Joseph’s) name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

#6847 Tsophnath Pa`neach tsof-nath' pah-nay'-akh of Egyptian derivation; Tsophnath-Paneach, Joseph's Egyptian name:--Zaphnath-paaneah.

In the Blue Letter Bible, it says this about this Egyptian Name given to Joseph:  Zaphnath-paaneah =“salvation of the ages" or "treasury of the glorious rest.”

In Hebrew this name means “revealer of a secret.”
The Egyptian meaning of this name meant "Salvation of the Ages" but yet in Hebrew it meant "Revealer of a Secret!"

Aha! So now we see that at Messiah’s first coming as “Messiah Ben Joseph” he had a “hidden name” among the Gentiles. But now, as he is getting ready to return for his elect of Yisra’el, he is now revealing himself as “Messiah Ben David” who has a name that no man knew but he himself (Revelation 19:12). And so this means that he is now revealing his “secret name” to his servants the prophets:

Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Amos 3:7 Surely YaHuWaH Elohiym will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

The true sons of Yisra'el are now being shown his "hiddden name"  just as Joseph revealed himself to his eleven brothers when they came to buy grain in Egypt and they did not recognize him at first because he had a "hidden name" Zaphnathpaaneah. When Joseph removed his Egyptian costume and told them his real name, the sons of Yisra'el were all restored back to him and there was reconciliation!  

Daniel and his three Hebrew companions from the House of Judah were given Babylonian pagan names for a time:

Daniel 1:

6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:

7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

And so the Holy Spirit showed me the same thing about our Messiah. He was given a pagan name for a season as “Jesus” but now, his true Hebrew name is being revealed in these last days!

In 164 B.C, Antiochus Ephiphanes erected an image of Zeus on December 25th in the 2nd Jewish Temple (another pattern of the Antichrist). This is another Anti-Type showing how our Messiah’s image has been distorted to Zeus born on December 25th. It totally fits the pattern!

The reason why people can be saved calling upon the name of “Jesus” is because the Holy Spirit interprets the deep groaning of our hearts and he interprets the name Jesus as YaHuW'shuwa before the throne of YaHuWaH for us.

Messiah is like Joseph who was the "Saviour" to the Egyptians (Gentiles), as Zaphnath-paaneah. Yet to his Hebrew brothers, he was known by the Heavenly Father's name YaHuW'ceph meaning "revealer of secrets."

The Holy Spirit searches out our hearts and he interprets the name Jesus as the secret hidden name of YaHuW'shuwa before the throne!

Romans 8:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh ntercession for the saints according to the will of Elohiym.

But now in these last days, YaHuWaH is restoring his remnant to “one pure language” as prophesied in Zephaniah 3:8-9:

8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith YaHuWaH, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YaHuWaH, to serve him with one consent.

And so let us keep on moving with the Holy Spirit as he gives revelation to the Name that is above all other names, the one and only name that we call upon for salvation. And so let us not be stagnant. In the wilderness, the children of Yisra'el had to keep on moving with the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. If they remained stagnant, they would be left behind as the rest of the camp would keep on moving! Or else they would be stampeded and trampled as the rest kept on moving. We are in that day and hour where YaHuWaH is raising the bar!

Did the name Jesus Really Come from Zeus?

The Greeks and Romans did indeed change his name to Zeus for a good reason. It is because Zeus had a December 25th Birthday!  

This is a true historical fact. But having said all of that, I know that people are still saved using the name Jesus when they are using this name based on their corrupted Bible Manuscripts. I don’t go around correcting people when speaking to them “one on one” when they use the name “Jesus.” I try to lead by example in my lifestyle and show them his character and use his real Hebrew name YaHuW’shuwa ha’Mashiyach.

But I do write about his real name in my public ministry and forums because I have been called to be a “watchman to the House of Yisra'el.” My primary calling is to call the sheep to come out of Mystery Babylon paganism (Revelation 18:4), to embrace our High Priest whose name is “the Branch” and who receives “many crowns.” That name is already revealed to us in the Hebrew Scriptures in Zechariah chapter 6 as YaHuW'shuwa (Joshua). This is a Messianic prophecy of the future High Priest who would come after the order of Melchizedek (Malki-Tzadiq).

Here is the evidence about Jesus coming from Zeus from a reliable source:

The deceased Messianic Jewish Evangelist and historian Art Katz, cites the origins of the true name of the Messiah and the Elohiym of Israel from his former website:

The original Hebrew or Jewish Name of the professing Jewish Messiah, who was accepted as such by a certain section (some 3000 souls) of Israel, at and after His Appearance in Israel, some 2000 years ago. To them He was known as YAHU’SHUAH (abbreviated: Y’SHUAH, also pronounced YEHOSHUA or YESHUA). In time, over the first few centuries after Messiah, His Name was gradually changed to “Je-Zeus Khristos” by the pagan masses who converted and joined the originally Jewish Messianic Sect.

Out of this, Christianity was born, which was a mixture of originally pure Judaism, and gradually, progressive influences of pagan customs and traditions, together with a growing tide of an anti-Semitic spirit. This was greatly due to the instigation of influential leaders like Constantine the Great, who was a Zeus worshiper, and who purportedly converted to Christianity. It was also a natural process as a result of the infiltration of followers of the sun god, Zeus, into the Christian ranks. Even the name of their pagan idol Zeus was applied to their new-found Jewish Messiah - and Y’Shuah (the abbreviated transliteration of YAHU'SHUAH), became “Y’Zeus” or Je-Zeus - which became ‘Jesus’ in English (NOTE - the middle 's' is pronounced as a 'z'). In other languages, it took on various other forms.

Art Katz's biography is at this website:

And so we can see why the Heavenly Father allowed our Messiah Yahu’shua to take on the pagan name J’Zeus for a time, in order that he might win the heathen nations to himself. Like Queen Esther and Joseph in Egypt, our Messiah has a real Hebrew name. Esther’s true name was Hadassah. The Heavenly Father has allowed our Messiah to be given a heathen name for a season so that a later time in history, when “The fullness of the Gentiles” is accomplished, all the nations who love J’Zeus (Yahu’shua) would rise up to fast and pray for the House of Judah (Jews) to be saved from their enemies.

After all, YaHuWaH is the one who confounded (confused) our languages in the first place at the Tower of Babel because he did not want everyone to be unified under a Satanic New World order under Nimrod (see Genesis 10-11).

And so he knew that the gospel would be published in every tongue, tribe and nation of the earth. He knew that his name would be "hidden" and distorted by the enemy. However, he also knows who we are calling upon when we call him from our hearts based on the transliterated scriptures that we have available to read. And so I believe people can be saved using those incorrect names (I was also saved using the name Jesus). But once we know better, then we are required to follow the revelation that the Holy Spirit is giving us.

In Genesis 1:1 in the Ancient Paleo Hebrew text, it says“in the beginning Elohiym created the Aleph & Taw.”

And then it says that he created “heaven and earth.” And so the Aleph & Taw is the Hebrew Alphabet which Elohiym has created from the beginning! The original language is Ancient Hebrew and he is going to restore us to this one pure language as it says in Zephaniah 3:9 at his second coming!

Every Letter in the Hebrew Alphabet is a pictograph of Messiah!

What is the Name that we Call Upon for Salvation? 
Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of YaHuWaH shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as YaHuWaH hath said, and in the remnant whom YaHuWaH shall call.

If the name that we call upon for salvation in the Tanakh (Old Testament) is YHWH (Psalms 116), and we know that our Father in Heaven does not change, how is it that the name that we call upon for salvation changes in the New Testament (Brit Chadasha)?

In Romans 10:13 the name YHWH is shown in the Aramaic Peshitta instead of the word “Lord” which was later used to replace the proper name that we call upon for salvation. The Greek term “the Lord” (Kurios) is a title that can also apply to the person you pay your rent to every month---your landlord!

And so how did the name for salvation suddenly change to “Jesus” in Acts 4:12? Well the answer to that question is “It didn’t!”

The name we call upon for Salvation is “the same yesterday, today and forever: YaHuW’shuwa Messiah” (Hebrews 13:8).

He came in his Father’s name! (John 5:43).

Believe me, I did not start using the name YaHuW’shuwa on a whim. I fasted and prayed about it from 2006-2010 before I realized the history of what the scribes did to hide his name. What is the name of Salvation in the Tanakh/Old Testament? And what is the name of Salvation in the Brit Chadasha/New Testament?

Psalm 116:4 Then called I upon the name of YHWH; O YHWH, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. 

Psalm 116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of YHWH. 

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of YHWH shall be saved.

And so we see that the name that we call upon for Salvation in the Tanakh (Old Testament) as well as the Brit Chadasha (New Testament) is not the Greek word “Kurios” (Lord), and neither is it “Jesus” but it is the Father’s name (the Tetragrammaton) which are the four letters: Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey.

Did the name for salvation all of a sudden change in Acts 4:12?

Acts 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. 

If the Torah and Tanakh is consistent with the Brit Chadasha, how is it that the name for Salvation used to be Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey and now it is only Yod Shin Ayin (Yshua) or Jesus?

There is only one answer to this question that makes any sense at all. That the name of Salvation has never changed! It is still Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey!

The son’s name contains the Father’s name in it!

Thank you, Chris. Do you know what the word famished means?
