YHVH. YHWH. Tetragrammaton?
Yehovah, YeHoVaH, Yehovah of Hosts, Yahuwah, Yahuah, Yahweh, Jehovah, God, G-d, Almighty, Father, Most High, Elohim, El-Roi, El-Shaddai, Ehyeh, Yahshua, Abba, Adonai, Ancient of Days, the Light, Joshua, Ἰησοῦς, Iēsous, Jesus…Geezus, Mary and Joseph!
What’s in a name? Only One. But that One is everything!
There are so many titles that man has given the One who has created all things, that it is dizzying to think about. Some people say their religion of gods and goddesses are “the same” as the One with the name that no one seems to be able to agree upon nor pronounce. But they’re not the same. There is only the One, and he is above all things and all people and all “gods” and all creations. And he is a jealous and Mighty One, and he every right to be! Man has usurped him for millenniums. His name is Yahuah.
We categorize him as “male,” but that is simply a point of reference for us, an outer covering if you will, a shell or a cloak that he wears to disguise the deeper, hidden things. That’s because if we stand in his presence without truth and light, we’d be instantly destroyed. He’s that powerful and undefinable.
That’s why he calls idols and manmade religions and traditions “abominations” and “idolatry.” It’s because it is our exceedingly poor attempt as cosmic dust to define what does not wish to be defined nor limited by its own creation.
We’re famous for categorizing and compartmentalizing and assigning and valuing (and devaluing) so that all we encounter and strive to understand can fit inside of our pretty little heads and boxes and closets like a neatly kept biological file cabinet drawer that expands over time.
Whatever we are calling him, “the name” and the One attached to same, remains a controversial subject. People have wars over it and people have died because of it. In the Bibles of Christianity, the “actual” name was removed by men during translation of the Hebrew/Aramaic languages into Greek and then Latin and then English and then German and the myriad of translations and tongues that we have today.
At one point in my spiritual “career,” I actually spent a solid year working for a missionary proofreading the Samoan Bible, a language I neither speak nor understand. How’s that for an objective witness? The project began with about 100 volunteers located around the globe, and endured through what I believe were two hurricanes, power outages, flooding, computer failures, and major seasons of illness and physical and mental fatigue. At the end of the days there were only three, then two, and then one, but we were all part of the One working (I admit) somewhat tirelessly but absolutely humanly to bring the Gospel of Good News to the island nations of just one people of around two hundred thousand citizens.
Whatever it takes to bring truth.
Unfortunately the word “truth” in the human heart, mind and tongue is rather subjective and experiential. And that truth is a divided truth, just as the “book” of the Word (and his physical body) was and is and will be in the days to come, divided by man.
Pontius Pilate asked the question of Yeshua (Jesus) before our beloved Messiah was condemned to death.
“What is truth?”
John 18:38 – Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
The truth is that the Truth of the One, Yahuah looks very different than man’s truth. And the truth of man looks very different to each individual. That’s because man is corrupt and a corrupt truth is interpreted by corrupt minds and hearts of corrupt individuals. We can’t help ourselves. We live in a corrupt world. Without the Spirit of the Light of Truth to illuminate the Word, there is no Truth in the Word or in the world. The Truth of Elohim is the only real Truth there is. To find Truth, we must first seek Truth in the Word of the One.
The Truth of the One is that “the name” is clearly stated in the ancient biblical texts of the Tanakh, the first five books of “Moses,” the writings and the prophets. But it is mankind who has worked tirelessly to destroy, conceal, reassign and modify “the name” and the books and scrolls and tablets thereon. Man has eliminated or neatly concealed the name some 7,000 times in the modern biblical texts! Oh, why can’t man just leave well enough alone? It’s because he is rebellious. He is corrupt. He has sinned.
What is perfect needs no translation. Since we are imperfect, we need the Helper, the Holy Spirit to interpret the Word.
When asked by Moses what is the name the One should be referred to as, the reply was:
Exodus 3:14 – And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
So the truth of man is that the name boils down on Earth to whatever name we assign the One in the language of our choice, by the choices we make. But that doesn’t mean we choose the god or our definition of same. I said the truth of man. The Truth of our Elohim Yahuah is that he is who he says he is. He is the One and the Only One. He is I AM and he will be what he will be, or she will be or they will be or however they wish to reveal themselves. That can be an angel of the Lord, a Spirit of Prophecy, a Spirit of Tongues, a holy Messiah, or any manifestation they choose.
Remember that our choices are why we are down here on this Earth trying to learn who we are and who is the One, the I AM who created us. That’s the purpose of our journey here, according to the One who created us. It is to learn of him, to learn of ourselves, to learn the great lesson of love, to learn to value one another and their unique giftings and to learn of the Messiah who came down to teach us the greatest lessons of our lives.
The question is, are we listening to the One?
While there are many debates about “the name,” we’re not debating here. We’re illustrating. Hopefully we’re educating. In physical reality, by the revelation of the Spirit of the One, the name seems to be somewhere between YHVH, the four-letter tetragrammaton translation of the Hebrew letters, with a three syllable “Yah-hu-ah” in a relaxed and very breathy sounding name Yahuah breathed out in a single breath.
But the name of the Holy One of Israel is difficult for man to say because it is a virtually woven three-fold vocal chord vibration (song) with two syllables that are spoken in One breath. Go ahead and crack that egg. It will take at least a day by Yahuah’s standards (which is a thousand years and don’t worry you won’t live that long), at least eight earthly years of study in man’s terms (defined in the Word as a mature fruit tree), and at least One brilliant moment of revelation by Yahusha’s Spirit of prophecy, the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the last days. We’re all matter and energy with a vibration after all. And what we think, say and do, really matters (or anti-matters).
The Book of Genesis chapter 31 reveals the story of Yahuah telling Jacob to return to the land of his fathers and to his kindred and “I” will be with thee. That is the first part of the I AM. It is the One who created all things. In verse 13, the I AM identifies himself as the God of Bethel, the God of the House of God, the “El.” Notice that in the English translation in the Bible, the Word “am” there is italicized. It was added by man during translation. The Old Testament books focus on the “I” of the gospel of old.
The Hebrew word is “‘el,” or [H410] in the Strong’s Concordance. It means “God,” “Mighty One,” “Jehovah,” and “strength and power.”
The I AM is identifying himself as the “Father,” the strength and power of the Creator. He is identifying himself here as “the Law” of the land, the commandments, statutes and judgments. It is One pillar of Truth. It is the way of Truth. It is the man.
Genesis 31:13 – I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.
That kindred is the land of Abraham, Jacob’s forefather, his grandfather, the father of all righteous men.
The Book of Revelation chapter 12 tells us that the name of the One who returns again will be written on his thigh. No man will know the name. That is the “AM” part of the gospel of old. It is the believing and doing portion, the action of creation and living.
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.
Revelation 19:13 – And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
He knows the name because he himself is the “I” of the three-fold chord of life. He is the united I AM. That Word, that united nation, that Everlasting Gospel of Peace was divided for a season, for the nations to learn and grow in.
Revelation 19:16 – And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Remember how Jacob strove with the angel, and that the angel “touched” him on the inner thigh? That’s the groin. That’s the anointed seed upon the men and women of faith who would come out of Jacob’s seed. It’s all of his descendants who would have the faith and testimony of Yahusha (Jesus) of the New Testament and the faith and obedience in the Law of the Old. It is the woman, the womb of life joined with the man of Law to create in Love.
Revelation 19:10 – And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
That testimony of Yahusha is the Spirit of Prophecy. That prophecy reveals throughout the “Old” Testament, the books of the Bible that declare the Laws of the Father and the prophecies of the Mother that would manifest as their Son, the Messiah. He is hidden in the womb of the books of the Tanakh, but he is there if you seek his face. Fleshly eyes don’t see him plainly evident because he isn’t yet born. He’s in the womb of the Word, the Tanakh. He is prophesied, and prophecy is Spirit, even in written form.
In the “New” Testament gospels, the Messiah is now plainly evident, for therein he is revealed by his birth and proven (justified) by his faith, obedience, death, and resurrection. The New Testament books are given by the Spirit of Revelation, the Spirit of Prophecy, the Spirit of Messiah that is spoken, written and demonstrated. The One reveals himself by his own Word in faith and action.
Books that are not in the Bible in its many forms can be proven true revelations if they plainly reveal the Land Tithe Gospel, the Messiah of the Everlasting Gospel of old. This Gospel teaches the Love of the Law of the One, and the Love of the One, and pf the ones around us. It is the greatest commandment: Love. One.
The Law and Mercy of Love are the greatest witnesses of truth and life. Man adds to and takes away from the Word all the time, which is why we have so many different versions and interpretations and misinterpretations and religions and traditions. Yet the One is able to preserve enough of his Word so that all may receive it in the end. His Spirit has come to plant seeds of Truth and to reveal his Word and his interpretations so all may glean and grow in unity. But Messiah is the husbandman in this season, not man or woman. It is the Harvest Season of the One. HalleluYAH!
Revelation 19:11 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Those who are faithful and true to the Word of Elohim, the Word of the I AM, the One who spoke all things into existence, will be given the gift of unity. It is the gift of the One, the gift of revelation, the gift of Truth in Messiah. It’s a gift that gives for eternity.
That revelation comes to us today to tell us that there are two parts to this united gospel of truth and life. It is a uniting of the Old Testament Laws and the New Testament Messiah by faith and by right action. Messiah as the Law has been here from the beginning, but man couldn’t see him. That’s because he was so busy hiding the truth in so-called establishments of faith, and defining and redefining what he interpreted as truth and life, that he couldn’t see the Torah of old for the trees used today for printed Bibles. In these latter days, what was hidden from men is made plainly evident for every eye to see, by the Spirit of Messiah who said he is with us always. He has never left us nor forsaken us! Here’s what the Old Testament prophet Isaiah says:
Isaiah 45:23 – I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Can I get a New Testament witness? Absolutely.
Romans 14:11 – For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
Everyone who believes, whether Old or New Testament, will agree. They will confess in every language to the truth and the life. They will finally see the light of the Word that has been there all along. It is a Gospel of One, a Gospel of Unity of the Bible books of the Great and Mighty One that we serve. That is the Everlasting Gospel of Truth, which brings Peace, Eternal Life to all who obey the commandments and walk them out by faith in Messiah and who have the testimony of Messiah as their Savior who paid for their sins. What is Yahusha’s testimony?
He is the Law. He is the Word of the Father. He is the heart, mind, soul and strength of the One who Created all things. He is the Mother. He is the Son and the Daughter. Look at this. Father’s wisdom is a feminine attribute.
Proverbs 1:20 – Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
Proverbs 9:1 – Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
Those pillars are the seven “churches” that are spoken of in the Book of Revelation. They are man’s wisdom, man’s version of what he thinks is faith, what he thinks is Messiah, and what man interprets the Word to be saying. Man’s wisdom is no wisdom at all. He can only see out of one eye, his own wisdom, unless he (or she) has the Spirit of Messiah upon them. Then his eyes will be opened and will have eyes to see the glory of the I AM.
The I AM tells us his wisdom and his interpretations will come from Messiah, his Word, himself in the last days. It is his Spirit of wisdom and revelation that will interpret His Word, His Laws, His way. He is the way, truth and life. It isn’t man’s job to interpret the Word. It’s the Word’s job to interpret the Word. His Spirit will help us learn of him so we will be prepared when he returns in the flesh.
Man is supposed to search the Scriptures by the Spirit of the Word to have the interpretation of the Word. But man searches the Word and inserts his own interpretation of what he thinks the Word says. He doesn’t truly have the Spirit! On top of that, men and women insert themselves in the role of priest where they are not actually priests. While this served for the early seasons of man’s education, we aren’t to be trapped by religions and systems and doctrines of men. We are to observe, guard, obey, and do the Law and the walk of Messiah as well has accept his sacrifice as our sin atonement. Our leaders will have to change the way they are leading and adapt their message to the message of the One or they will be overtaken by the spirits of the world. And those evil spirits will deceive if it were possible, even the very elect!
Believers who are leaders are to teach the Everlasting Gospel with the Land Tithe as the key to understanding the Word so all may learn of him, the One. Then once we are “full in the ear” like the barley crop, we are to go out into the world and teach and demonstrate the Gospel of Good News to all. How’s that for a commission?
It comes from the One who is the Word. The One who has the Holy Spirit of the Word can fully interpret the Word by the Spirit! All else is warm and fuzzy human spirit of love, or it is plain and evident human interpretation of the Law, but it isn’t True Law or True Love of the Divine Spirit of the One! Those who truly tithe and who truly love the Word, will receive the true Spirit of the Word.
True Words. Harsh Words. Truth is sometimes hard to hear. But we speak it in Love because we Love.
Exodus 28:3 – And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
“Aaron,” that high priest is Yahusha Messiah. He is the one standing on the hill tops teaching the people. He isn’t using a mediator or a translator, for he knows all tongues.
We are to be Faithful to the Laws of the One that are written in the Old Testament, the Father of all things. And we are to be True to the Testimony of the One whose Word came to show us how to do this thing called life, how to Love, the Mother of the One Messiah.
That testimony is the Love of the Law (because Yahusha is the Word and Spirit of the Law of Love) and the Love of the Father and Mother of their Son. The Mother is the heart, mind, soul and strength of the Father manifest in the Son and in the offspring as men and women in Messiah. The One gave part of themself to mankind to save us because the I AM loves us. The Son who is the seed of all humanity gave himself for all of creation because he loves those who have fallen. We are turned away. We have sinned. We must repent and return back to the One. The Shepherd is calling his sheep back to the fold.
We don’t just believe in Messiah. We must believe in the Law that is Messiah and believe in the testimony, the Love and Obedience of Messiah who is the Love and Obedience to the Law and the Love of One another as Oneself.
Get it? Love of One self as we love the One. We are all One.
We must be One in him and he in us. And we are to do unto others as we would do unto ourself if we Love ourself as the One who loves us.
We are to believe the Law and the Messiah and do the Law as Messiah does the Law. We are to walk as the Messiah walked in Love of the Law and Love of life. He is the Law of the Father, and the Law of Obedience to his Mother. He Loves and honors the Mother and Father as we are to honor our Fathers and Mothers.
That Law of Love is Obedience to the Law and mercy toward life. It is Oneness with the I AM.
Who is the “AM” part of the “I AM”? It’s the mother. She’s the heart, mind and soul of the womb, the love of creation, the inner being and doing parts of the Spirit of the Father. She is the physical matter to the spiritual Father. She is the innermost thoughts and desires of the being that is the I AM. They want to sup with those who become One with them. They manifest as the Spirit in the flesh, the Word made flesh. It is the highest priesthood in the flesh that we can attain: Oneness with the One.
Remember the “Let us” in Genesis 1:26? Well, the “let us” was added, but the Hebrew Word for “make” in that Scripture is Strong’s [H6213] “`asah.” It means: to labor, to prepare, to make, to perform, produce, preserve, press, yield, create by labor.
Mankind is God’s creation in the field. That field is a seed that is planted. It divides, grows, and reproduces. Elohim’s creation is a brilliant and huge agricultural system that encompasses birth, death, procreation and provision. It is broken down into the Tabernacle system, the storehouse, the altar, the seasons, the Messiah, and the entire One Land Tithe system.*
* This is a huge revelation of Elohim’s agricultural system of creation and its relationship to the tithe and man’s journey into life that will soon be revealed in book and eBook forms. Check our blog. ETA is the Day of Firstfruits, roughly sundown April 8, 2018. It all depends on the sighting of the new moon in Israel and the condition of the barley crop (“Aviv”).
Genesis 1:26 – And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
We are made in the image of the One. That’s male and female. We must unite to create, just as the Creator must unite to create. We must unite to become One with our creator. That involves complete surrender in mind and Spirit from the physical world and a life of sacrifice to the One in service to one another. We learn how to do this, how to go from physical world to spiritual being through the Land Tithe system that is Messiah in the Earth.
And we are to have the Love of the One for one another, for it is the great commandment that is divided like the egg shell (Father/Law) that covers the yolk and the white of the egg that lies inside (Mother/Word) and out of which is born all of creation (Sons and Daughters in Messiah) in all of its forms, demonstrated through the Word and Testimony of Messiah. It takes two to make an egg, but only One to eat it.
Just like we “eat” the Word. The Word is a united One.
It takes One to give life. That One gives us the anointed bread and fine wine of the wedding supper of Love. It’s the wedding feast for the bride of Messiah, the One.
There is One Everlasting Gospel. There is One Messiah. There is One Law. There is One faith. There is One path of Righteousness. It is the Way of the Law. It is the Love of Life. And the Truth is the men and women and all of their little children who are somewhere between the two extremes and who must choose today whom you will serve.
We aren’t to choose one extreme or the other, the Law or the Messiah under the wisdom of mankind. The two are One. There is only One choice and One united Word, and it’s theirs.
For repentance is proof of love. It’s life. You can’t have the Law without Mercy or you have a death penalty on an innocent man. You can’t love the Law without doing the Law, for that is confusion and rebellion. Rebellion has turned away from the One. It is sin. The penalty, the wages of sin is death.
The only choice we can Lawfully make is the One. It is both. We must obey the Law and do (walk out) the Law in Love as Messiah Yahusha did for us.
Now you know His Truth.
Go forth and believe and do. Endure unto the end and you will be saved.
We have the Word of the One. The Spirit of the Word says:
I AM the One.
