YHWH-symbolsmeaning

Hebrew (/ˈhbr/עִבְרִית‬, Ivrit [ʔivˈʁit] (About this sound listenor

[ʕivˈɾit] (About this sound listen) is a Northwest Semitic language native to Israel, spoken by over 9 million people worldwide.[7][4] Historically, it is regarded as the language of the Israelites and their ancestors, although the language was not referred to by the name Hebrew in the Tanakh.[note 2] The earliest examples of written Paleo-Hebrew date from the 10th century BCE.[8] Hebrew belongs to the West Semitic branch of the Afroasiatic language family. Hebrew is the only living Canaanite language left, and the only truly successful example of a revived dead language.[9][10]

EtymologyEdit

The modern word “Hebrew” is derived from the word “Ivri” (plural “Ivrim”; English: Hebrews), one of several names for the Israelite (Jewish and Samaritan) people. It is traditionally understood to be an adjective based on the name of Abraham’s ancestor, Eber (“Ever” עבר in Hebrew), mentioned in Genesis 10:21. This name is possibly based upon the root “ʕ-b-r” (עבר) meaning “to cross over”. Interpretations of the term “ʕibrim” link it to this verb; cross over or the people who crossed over the river Euphrates.[15]

In the Bible, the Hebrew language is called Yәhudit (יהודית) because Judah (Yәhuda) was the surviving kingdom at the time of the quotation (late 8th century BCE (Is 36, 2 Kings 18). In Isaiah 19:18 it is called the “Language of Canaan” (שפת כנען).

Below is my list of things that didn’t sit well with me regarding church. This is not to say I won’t go to church but on a rare occasion now, and can’t help looking at the pastor with a side eye. Most pastors avoid some truths. However I still believe that the New Testament can be used alongside the Old Testament. I decided to spend a period of time studying the Old Testament. After a period of about a year I realised that for me the old and new Testament work hand in hand. The video below stood out for me. It is an example of how the New Testament can be used to help us get closer to The Almighty YAHUAH and the WORD.

I decided a long time ago that one day I would learn Hebrew Aramaic and Arabic to get a better understanding of the Holy word. It is still a dream but I have been learning the basics of Hebrew and Arabic for a short while. The English King James Version of the Bible is a translation. You cannot get the true meaning of the names or messages behind the words in a translation. The true words cannot be properly expressed in English, the names have no meaning. Yahusha said “I come in my father’s name and you do not accept me but if I come in someone else’s name you will accept me.” YAHUAH states “if my people who are know by my name will humble themselves and call on me…” he will fulfill his promise and never forsake us. We must go back the covenant.

Nowhere is the Name God in Jesus or the word Jew or Judah in God. Also it was the Jews who according to the bible killed Jesus. This is only my belief and I admit that I am still learning.

The root word remains the same with YAHU or YAH

In YAHUAH we have YAHUSHA or YASHA  YAHSHIYA YAHUSHUA and YAHUDAH

It fulfills the promise.

Let’s take Jehovah there was no “J” using the “Yod” you get “Y” in ancient Hebrew instead of “Ye” it was “Yah” YA instead of “El” it was “Al” we now have Yahovah or Yahweh. Yahweh adds vowels A And E to create  sound but there were no vowels.

A “W” is a Double U ( 2 U’s = a W Equivalent or the same as UU) which creates the sound EWE, YAHOO-A, YAH-WHO-AH in English.

The above documentary states it should be YAHAWAH. Some say YA-HOW-A some say YA-WHO-A

Some pronounce the tettergrames  YHWH as YAHWEH or YAHVEH. This became JEHOVAH or JAH when the “J” was developed in Europe around 500 years ago.

yahu-a

  YAH or YAHU

The ‘Personal’ Name of the ‘God of Israel’ by which He anciently revealed Himself to Moses ( 6:2).  ‘YAH’ is spelt in original Hebrew, with the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet – the ‘yood’, smallest letter in the alphabet, represented by the inverted comma ( ‘ ). YAHU also has the meaning of  ‘He is YAH’

Obscure Preservation of the Sacred Name ‘YAHU’

Hebrew personal names have meanings, and many such personal names have throughout time, been linked to the Sacred Name YAHU.  In this obscure way, the Sacred Name YAHU has been preserved for modern times, notwithstanding the fact that it has been almost totally removed from most Bible Translations.

This Name, through recent archeological discoveries in Israel, has been found to be part of more Hebrew words and names than were formerly known. There is an untold number of usages in the Tanach (‘Old Testament’) where this form of the Sacred Name is used as a conjunction in Biblical names.  Some of the more common examples of these are:

  • EliYahu (‘Elijah’)
  • YeremiYahu (‘Jeremiah’)
  • YeshiYahu (‘Isaiah’)
  • YahuShafat (‘Josephat’)
  • NetanYahu (also the name of former Israeli Prime Minister)
  • YahuNatan (‘Jonethan’)
  • and of course, the Messianic Salvation Name YAHU’SHUAH (‘Yeshuah’)

The truth is we cannot say for certain exactly how it should be physically pronounced, we can only take an educated guess. Our languages have been confused. After the scattering of the people from the tower of Babel the language became mixed up see below:

Study Bible

The Tower of Babel
7“Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, so that they will not understand one another’s speech.” 8So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. 9Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.…

It was fore written. This is why although I search for the most ancient way to pronounce the name and pray, I know that it is our hearts sincerity which is more important. The languages of the WHOLE earth are confused according to the bible. Some say God some say Elohim some say ALAHEIM or Allah JAH Jehovah YAHUAH Lord ALMIGHY. The name has been hidden in plain sight. I cannot for certain say that I am right and they’re are much conflicting information out there. This is a documentation of one type of study only.

I recommend that you continue to research and I will also do the same. I like the saying “Study to show yourself approved” in the eyes of The Most High.

Research Cesare Borgia and his life. Below is a little information on the image of Jesus. Cesare Borgia.

Cesare Borgia, Duke of Valentinois, was an Italian condottiero, nobleman, politician, and cardinal, 

After initially entering the church and becoming a cardinal on his father’s election to the Papacy, he became the first person to resign a cardinalcy after the death of his brother in 1498. His father set him up as a prince with territory carved from the Papal States

The seeds of the Papal States as a sovereign political entity were planted in the 6th century. Beginning In 535, the Byzantine Empire, under emperor Justinian I, launched a reconquest of Italy that took decades and devastated Italy’s political and economic structures. Just as these wars wound down, the Lombards entered the peninsula from the north and conquered much of the countryside. By the 7th century, Byzantine authority was largely limited to a diagonal band running roughly from Ravenna, where the Emperor’s representative, or Exarch, was located, to Rome and south to Naples (the “Rome-Ravenna corridor”[4][5][6]), plus coastal enclaves.[7]

The Papal States, officially the State of the Church (ItalianStato della ChiesaItalian pronunciation: [ˈstato ˈdella ˈkjɛza]LatinStatus Ecclesiae), were a series of territories in the Italian Peninsula under the direct sovereign rule of the Pope, from the 8th century until 1870. 

The Papal Army was disbanded in 1870, leaving only the Palatine Guard, which was itself disbanded on 14 September 1970 by Pope Paul VI,[40] and the Swiss Guard, which continues to serve both as a ceremonial unit at the Vatican and as the pope’s protective force.

Other things that dont sit well for me personally are Idolatry of Preachers and Pope’s. Only The Almighty Creator of the universe through the son of man Yahusha can redeem us. Pope forgiving sins!! Confessing to the Pope instead of YHWH.

Peodophilia in the European church stretching back generations breaking the commandments.

Changes of the names of the Prophets. Janus and Zeus were Greco-Roman deities Ja-Zeus hmm sounds like something else and Kristos was also a pagan god.

When we get into Paganism most of the names we use were from the Canaanites. Yah, El, Allah. The real name has been replaced with Lord or God and has changed so many times. At the Kaba before Islam they worshipped 360 gods. This was done in Saudi Arabia. The middle east was the gateway to the East and West. These customs have penetrated the religions we have today. In the past the Hebrews fell away from the teachings of Moses and turned to Baal.

LevantineEdit

A 4th century BCE drachm (quartershekel) coin from the Persian province of Yehud Medinata, possibly representing Yahweh seated on a winged and wheeled sun-throne.[99]:766[100]:190

The ancient Canaanites were polytheists who believed in a pantheon of deities,[101][102][103] the chief of whom was the god El, who ruled alongside his consort Asherah and their seventy sons.[101]:22-24[102][103] Baal was the god of storm, rain, vegetation and fertility,[101]:68-127 while his consort Anat was the goddess of war[101]:131, 137-139 and Astarte, the West Semitic equivalent to Ishtar, was the goddess of love.[101]:146-149 The people of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah originally believed in these deities,[101][103][104] alongside their own national god Yahweh.[105][106] El later became syncretized with Yahweh, who took over El’s role as the head of the pantheon,[101]:13-17 with Asherah as his divine consort[100]:45[101]:146 and the “sons of El” as his offspring.[101]:22-24 During the later years of the Kingdom of Judah, a monolatristic faction rose to power insisting that only Yahweh was fit to be worshipped by the people of Judah.[101]:229-233 Monolatry became enforced during the reforms of King Josiah in 621 BCE.[101]:229 Finally, during the national crisis of the Babylonian captivity, some Judahites began to teach that deities aside from Yahweh were not just unfit to be worshipped, but did not exist.[107][39]:4 The “sons of El” were demoted from deities to angels.[101]:22

Ancient Mesopotamian culture in southern Iraq had numerous dingir (deities, gods and goddesses).[19]:69-74[110] Mesopotamian deities were almost exclusively anthropomorphic.[111]:93[19]:69-74[112] They were thought to possess extraordinary powers[111]:93and were often envisioned as being of tremendous physical size.[111]:93 They were generally immortal,[111]:93 but a few of them, particularly DumuzidGeshtinanna, and Gugalanna were said to have either died or visited the underworld.[111]:93 Both male and female deities were widely venerated.[111]:93

The most important deities in the Sumerian pantheon were known as the Anunnaki,[114] and included deities known as the “seven gods who decree”: AnEnlilEnkiNinhursagNannaUtu andInanna.[114] After the conquest of Sumer by Sargon of Akkad, many Sumerian deities weresyncretized with East Semitic ones.[113] The goddess Inanna, syncretized with the East Semitic Ishtar, became popular,[115][108]:xviii, xv[113]:182[111]:106-109 with temples across Mesopotamia.[116][111]:106-109

The Mesopotamian mythology of the first millennium BCE treated Anšar (later Aššur) and Kišaras primordial deities.[117] Marduk was a significant god among the Babylonians. He rose from an obscure deity of the third millennium BCE to become one of the most important deities in the Mesopotamian pantheon of the first millennium BCE. The Babylonians worshipped Marduk as creator of heaven, earth and humankind, and as their national god.[19]:62, 73[118] Marduk’s iconography is zoomorphic and is most often found in Middle Eastern archaeological remains depicted as a “snake-dragon” or a “human-animal hybrid”.[119][99][120]

The ancient Greeks revered both gods and goddesses.[121] These continued to be revered through the early centuries of the common era, and many of the Greek deities inspired and were adopted as part of much larger pantheon of Roman deities.[122]:91-97 The Greek religion was polytheistic, but had no centralized church, nor any sacred texts.[122]:91-97 The deities were largely associated with myths and they represented natural phenomena or aspects of human behavior.[121][122]:91-97

Several Greek deities probably trace back to more ancient Indo-European traditions, since the gods and goddesses found in distant cultures are mythologically comparable and arecognates.[33]:230-231[123]:15-19 Eos, the Greek goddess of the dawn, for instance, is cognate to Indic Ushas, Roman Aurora and LatvianAuseklis.[33]:230-232 Zeus, the Greek king of gods, is cognate to Latin Iūpiter, Old German Ziu, and Indic Dyaus, with whom he shares similar mythologies.[33]:230-232[124] Other deities, such asAphrodite, originated from the Near East.[125][126][127][128]

Greek deities varied locally, but many shared panhellenic themes, celebrated similar festivals, rites, and ritual grammar.[129] The most important deities in the Greek pantheon were the Twelve Olympians: Zeus, HeraPoseidonAthenaApollo,Artemis, Aphrodite, HermesDemeterDionysus,Hephaestus, and Ares.[123]:125-170 Other important Greek deities included HestiaHades and Heracles.[122]:96-97 These deities later inspired the Dii Consentes galaxy of Roman deities.[122]:96-97

Leviticus 18:1-30

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, I am the Lord your God. You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not walk in their statutes. You shall follow my rules and keep my statutes and walk in them. I am the Lord your God. You shall therefore keep my statutes and my rules; if a person does them, he shall live by them: I am the Lord. …

The Paleo-Hebrew alphabet was in common use in the ancient Israelite kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Following the exile of the Kingdom of Judah in the 6th century BCE, in the Babylonian exileJews began using a form of the Assyrian script, which was another offshoot of the same family of scripts. The Samaritans, who remained in the Land of Israel, continued to use the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet.

During the 3rd century BCE, Jews began to use a stylized, “square” form of the Aramaic alphabet that was used by the Persian Empire (which in turn was adopted from the Assyrians),[8] while the Samaritans continued to use a form of the Paleo-Hebrew script, called the Samaritan script. After the fall of the Persian Empire, Jews used both scripts before settling on the Assyrian form. For a limited time thereafter, the use of the Paleo-Hebrew script among Jews was retained only to write the Tetragrammaton.[9]

One theory is that YHWH had been inserted by Jewish scholars centuries ago. Some say that YHWH goes back to Ba’al. Look at the strong’s Concordance below Yah and Baal associated together. Ba’al is the Hebrew word for Lord. YHWH is considered the Most High and Sovereign Power of the Hebrews.

….

Also, on the ends of each pew, all of which are original and date back hundreds of years, the wavy lines of cursive Hebrew have been scratched into the wood. Our guide wasn’t able to translate any of the words, but he did tell us that a few Ethiopian tourists had visited recently and instantly recognized it. Apparently, it’s still used by Jewish communities in Africa.

Kongo Cosmograms, Underground Railroad Patchwork, Cursive Hebrew… now this is the kind of unexpected history which totally interests me! If you’re the same, make sure to visit the First African Baptist Church, either for the tour or for the Sunday service.

 REMEMBER TO FORGET NO MORE, O; HOUSE OF THE HEBREWS–THE IGBOS

         

REMEMBER TO FORGET NO MORE, O; HOUSE OF THE HEBREWS–THE IGBOS, ALL OVER PLANET EARTH. UDO’NU!!! THE 12 TRIBES OF YAHSAR’AL WHO LIVE IN IGBOLAND OF BIAFRA IN WEST AFRICA; AND, WHO ARE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE THE HEBREWS | HEEBOES | IGBOS=CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH YAH, CREATOR AND OWNER OF THE UNIVERSE. THEY ARE ALL CALLED IGBO AS A CORRUPTION OF HEBREW | HEEBOE | IGBO. THE 12 TRIBES OF THE HEBREWS ON EARTH STILL LIVE TOGETHER IN IGBOLAND TILL DATE–MANY HEBREWS ARE SCATTERED ALL OVER THE WORLD AS WE SPEAK. CHRISTIANS, “MANY” BLACK AND BROWN MUSLIMS AS WELL AS “MANY” BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE OF PLANET EARTH ARE HEBREWS –IGBOS WHO WERE FORCED TO CONVERT TO BABYLON THE GREAT (WORLD EMPIRE OF RELIGIONS) OR DIE. THESE HEBREW BROTHERS AND SISTERS CHOSE TO LIVE IN SIN INSTEAD OF DYING FOR THE SPIRITS–A RESULT OF DEUTERONOMY 28:15-68 CURSES AGAINST THE HEBREWS–THE IGBOS. The 12 Sons/Tribes of Yah’Shara’Ala (Yahsar’al) are: Raawban (Changed to Reuben); ShaMiwan (Changed to Simon); LawYah (Changed to Levi); Yahawadah (changed to Judah), Dahhniyah (Changed to Dan) Napathalyah (Changed to Naphtali); Gad (Gad); Ahshar (Changed to Asher); YahsShaKar (Changed to Issachar); Zabalawan (Changed to Zebulon) BanYahyan (changed to Benjamin); PLUS The Sons of Yahsho’v (Changed to Joseph) Ahparayam (Changed to Ephraim) Manasha (Changed to Manasseh) NOTE: All Original Hebrew–Igbo name were changed by The Roman Empire, Zionist Fake Hebrews called JEWS in IsraEL, The Vatican and All Religions, England and All Monarchies, United Nations and All Politicians, The Elite/The Rich, All Secret Societies, IMF, World Bank, Money =NEW WORLD ORDER OF LUCIFER=the Synagogue of Satan spoken about in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9. “Find the Igbos ANYWHERE; then, you have found the Hebrews EVERYWHERE” Obioha Ehyinnayah Ezekwesiriyah 2015 (The Last Messenger of Yahusha Ha Mashiyahkh=ha’Mashiriyah–in Igbo, till date. NOW, KNOW THIS… Our Hebrew Land which was given to our ancestors by our Heavenly Father and creator-YAH was/is called YAH’SHARA’ALA in Igbo language (Yahsar’al)–now corrupted as Isra’EL. The ever hidden but now REVEALED truth is that; “EL” is a Demon a.k.a Fallen Angel a.k.a Alien or God, gods, Chi, Arusi etc=Lucifer, Satan, Devil(s)=partners to United Nations and All politicians, All Religions and Secret Societies. The Shadow Government of this World you dO not see and/or know. This REVEALED truth Cancels any usage of “EL” (as Suffix or Prefix) to define/describe the Most High YAH,–the Creator of the Universe and the maker/owner of Everything Everywhere. The Ala’yem (Alayim) of The Hebrews–The Igbos. Negative Vibrations: Example: 1. El’ohim means Demons/gods. 2. Isara’EL means land dedicated to Demons/gods _____________________________________ Positive and Fruitful Vibrations “AL” is for YAH “AL” was taken from “ALA”. “Ala” means “LAND” in Igbo Language till date. As you know, Yahsar’AL (corrupted as Isra’EL) is YAH’S own portion of LAND on Planet Earth which YAH gave to his Hebrew Bloodline–The Igbos, forever. Examples: 1. Ala’lue’YAH was corrupted as Hallelujah. (Jah is Jabulon=Demon). Ala’lue’YAH (pronounced as AlalueYAH) means in the Igbolanguage till date: “Let YAH have His own PORTION of Land”. This is what became Yah’Shara’Ala which is often pronounce as Yahsar’al and was later corrupted as Isra’EL by the Roman Empire a.k.a Zionist Fake Hebrews called Jews of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9=Synagogue of Satan–Satanic Europeans who claimed Yahsar’al, renamed and dedicated our Hebrew Land to their EL Demon. Tufiakwaa! Aru!!! Satan was allowed to do this because the Children of Yahsharala (Yahsar’al) were under the CURSES of Deuteronomy 28:15-68. Yah has forgiven his Children on the condition that they do not follow any one or thing called EL, god, Chi, Arusi, Satan, Lucifer, Alien, Demon, Fallen Angel anymore forever and ever. See the Ten Commandments and the Torah (Turah) of YAH. Example 2. Ala’ye’m (Alayem/Alayim): The Igbo words “Ala’ye’m” (Alayem/Alayim) was corrupted to EL’ohim (EL is a Demon). Ala’Ye’m (Alayem/Alayim) is Igbo language which means: “being dependent on the Land of Yahsar’al”–the Blessed Land of YAH. A direct English Translation of Ala’Ye’M (Alayem/Alayim) is “Land-Provide”. This was so because All the Hebrews Blessed the Most High YAH whenever they remember the promised land they received from the Most High YAH their Hebrew Heavenly Father. So Ala’Ye’M (Alayem/Alayim) was used as title for the Most High YAH who gave the Land (Ala) to the Hebrews–The Igbos. (Note: “NOTE: In the Igbo language, “to give” means “Ye’M” while LAND is still called “Ala” in Igbo language till date. Ala’ye’m (Alayem/Alayim)=Land-Provide | ye’m’Ala=Give-Me-Land. Till date In Igboland, “Ala” is used to bless or to Curse and “Ala” is everything to the Hebrews—The Igbos. Therefore, the Ancient Hebrew words/language is still the Igbo words/language till today (with some data corruption here and there.. Hence it is now easier for the Igbos–The True Hebrew Yahsar’alites to reconnect to their Ancient Past now that YAH is Here. it is a Miracle from YAH. All Praise YAH forever and ever. AlalueYAH!!! Example 3. In ◄ Exodus 3:14 ► You read: “The Most High said to (Moshe (changed to Moses), “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” This is highly misleading. Why? Because the Hebrew translation of “I AM” is “AHAYAH” which when spoken in Igbo language of today, you have Aha’Yah (meaning HIS NAME). The Vatican Roman Empire removed the SACRED name of the The Most High YAH and Lied to the World that ◄ Exodus 3:14 ►said “I AM”is the name of the Almighty YAH. However, Aha’Yah (Igbo) AHAYAH (Hebrew ) was also the topic of ◄ Exodus 3:13 ► because Moshe (Moses) said to the Most High, “Suppose I go to the Hebrews and say to them, ‘The Heavenly Father of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”. You see how The Roman Empire and all the Religions use Language to deceive the Whole World? Revelation 12:9 and 13:14 completely fulfilled. Therefore, ◄ Exodus 3:14 ► should read as follows: “The Most High said to Moshe (changed to Moses), “I AM YAH… This is what you are to say to the Hebrews: ‘YAH… has sent me to you.’” In Igbo language, an Igbo would say: “YAH BU AHA’YAH (AHAYAH) YES!!!THE HEBREWS–THE IGBOS, ARE BACK. YAH’S SPIRITS NOW NOW RULE PLANET EARTH (MIDST ONGOING JUDGEMENT-DAY-DESTRUCTION), IN SEARCH OF HIS HEBREW BLOODLINES AS HE REUNITES HIS IGBO CHILDREN BY HIMSELF—ISAIAH 11:11-12. HAPPENING RIGHT NOW! All Praise YAH forever and ever. Ala’lue’YAH aka!!! Shaluwm! Shalayim!!! Udo na Ngozi diri Umu Igbo/Hebrew nile. This Revelation from The Most High YAH; via Yahusha HaMashiyahkh (ha’mashiriyah), is delivered this 25815 by: Angelippo#7777777_HEBREW_IGBO Angel of the Most High Creator of the Universe, maker and owner of everything everywhere assigned to the Hebrews__The Igbos on Planet Earth. Igbo=12 tribes of Yah’Shara’Ala (Yahsar’al) Warning: Never call our Hebrew Inheritance from YAH “IsraEL”anymore. Our Land and inheritance from YAH is called Yah’Shara’Ala. This is the name of the Land of the Hebrews—The Igbos Forever and ever Praising YAH. Shaluwm! Shalayim!!! Udo na Ngozi diri Umu Igbo nile.

Names of God

A number of traditions have lists of many names of God, many of which enumerate the various qualities of a Supreme Being. The English word “God” (and its equivalent in other languages) is used by multiple religions as a noun or name to refer to different deities, or specifically to the Supreme Being, as denoted in English by the capitalized and uncapitalized terms “god” and “God”.[1] Ancient cognate equivalents for the word “God” include proto-Semitic Elbiblical Hebrew ElohimArabic ‘ilah, and biblical Aramaic Elah. The personal or proper name for God in many of these languages may either be distinguished from such attributes, or homonymic. For example, in Judaism the tetragrammaton is sometimes related to the ancient Hebrew ehyeh (I will be). In the Hebrew bible, the excellent name of The God (SWT) is revealed directly to the beloved prophet Musa (SAWS), in Chapter 3, verse 14 of the book of Exodus, namely: “I Am”.

Correlation between various theories and interpretation of the name of “the one God”, used to signify a monotheistic or ultimate Supreme Being from which all other divine attributes derive, has been a subject of ecumenical discourse between Eastern and Western scholars for over two centuries.[2] In Christian theology the word must be a personal and a proper name of God; hence it cannot be dismissed as mere metaphor.[3] On the other hand, the names of God in a different tradition are sometimes referred to by symbols.[4] The question whether divine names used by different religions are equivalent has been raised and analyzed.[5]

Exchange of names held sacred between different religious traditions is typically limited. Other elements of religious practice may be shared, especially when communities of different faiths are living in close proximity (for example, the use of Om and Gayatri within the Indian Christiancommunity) but usage of the names themselves mostly remains within the domain of a particular religion, or even may help define one’s religious belief according to practice, as in the case of the recitation of names of God (such as the japa).[6] Guru Gobind Singh‘s Jaap Sahib, which contains 950 names of God.[7] The Divine Names, the classic treatise by Pseudo-Dionysius, defines the scope of traditional understandings in Western traditions such as Hellenic, Christian, Jewish and Islamic theology on the nature and significance of the names of God.[8] Further historical lists such as The 72 Names of the Lord show parallels in the history and interpretation of the name of God amongst Kabbalah, Christianity, and Hebrew scholarship in various parts of the Mediterranean world.[9]

The attitude as to the transmission of the name in many cultures was surrounded by secrecy. In Judaism, the pronunciation of the name of God has always been guarded with great care. It is believed that, in ancient times, the sages communicated the pronunciation only once every seven years;[10] this system was challenged by more recent movements.

The nature of a holy name can be described as either personal or attributive. In many cultures it is often difficult to distinguish between the personal and the attributive names of God, the two divisions necessarily shading into each other.[11]

Abrahamic religionsEdit

JudaismEdit

El comes from a root word meaning might, strength, power. Sometimes referring to God and sometimes the mighty when used to refer to the God of Israel, El is almost always qualified by additional words that further define the meaning that distinguishes him from false gods. A common title of God in the Hebrew Bible is Elohim (Hebrew: אלהים). The root Eloah (אלה) is used in poetry and late prose (e.g., the Book of Job) and ending with the masculine plural suffix “-im” ים creating a word like ba`alim (“owner(s)” and adonim (“lord(s), master(s)”) that may also indicate a singular identity.

In the Book of Exodus, God commands Moses to tell the people that ‘I AM’ sent him, and this is revered as one of the most important names of God according to Mosaic tradition.

Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I am who I am.This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.” God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation”.

— 

When Moses first spoke with God, God said, “I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as El Shaddai, but I did not make myself known to them by my name YHWH.”

YHWH (יהוה‬) is the proper name of God in Judaism.[citation needed] Neither vowels nor vowel points were used in ancient Hebrew writings and the original vocalisation of YHWH has been lost.[12]

Later commentaries additionally suggested that the true pronunciation of this name is composed entirely of vowels, such as the Greek Ιαουε.[13] However, this is put into question by the fact that vowels were only distinguished in the time-period by their very absence due to the lack of explicit vowels in the Hebrew script. The resulting substitute made from semivowels and glottals, known as the tetragrammaton, is not ordinarily permitted to be pronounced aloud, even in prayer. The prohibition on misuse (not use) of this name is the primary subject of the command not to take the name of the Lord in vain.

Instead of pronouncing YHWH during prayer, Jews say “Adonai” (“Lord”). Halakha requires that secondary rules be placed around the primary law, to reduce the chance that the main law will be broken. As such, it is common religious practice to restrict the use of the word “Adonai” to prayer only. In conversation, many Jewish people, even when not speaking Hebrew, will call God HaShem(השם), which is Hebrew for “the Name”

Almost all Orthodox Jews avoid using either Yahweh or Jehovah altogether on the basis that the actual pronunciation of the tetragrammaton has been lost in antiquity. Many use the termHaShem as an indirect reference, or they use “God” or “The Lord” instead.

ChristianityEdit

Some biblical scholars say YHWH was most likely pronounced Yahweh.[12] References, such asThe New Encyclopædia Britannica, validate the above by offering additional specifics to its (Christian) reconstruction out of Greek sources:

Early Christian writers, such as Clement of Alexandria in the 2nd century, had used a form like Yahweh, and claim that this pronunciation of the tetragrammaton was never really lost. Other Greek transcriptions also indicated that YHWH should be pronounced Yahweh.[13]

Christianity is based on the revelation of God. God Himself became a human. Therefore the name Jesus, Yeshua, Iesous, is the name of God.

The Hebrew theonyms Elohim and YHWH are mostly rendered as “God” and “the LORD” respectively, although in the Protestant tradition the personal names Yahweh and Jehovah[14] are also used. “Jehovah”[14] appears in the Tyndale Bible, the King James Version, and other translations from that time period and later. Many English translations of the Bible translate the tetragrammaton as LORD, thus removing any form of YHWH from the written text and going well beyond the Jewish oral practice of substituting Adonai for YHWH when reading aloud.[15]

English Bible translations of the Greek New Testament render ho theos (Greek: Ο Θεός) as Godand ho kurios (Greek: Ο Κύριος) as “the Lord”.

Jesus (Iesus, Yeshua[16] was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (“Yehoshua” – Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second Temple period. The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which comes the English spelling Jesus.[17][18]Christ” means “the anointed” in Greek (Χριστός). Khristos is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew word Messiah; while in English the old Anglo-Saxon Messiah-rendering hæland (healer) was practically annihilated by the Latin “Christ”, some cognates such as heiland in Dutch and Afrikaans survive—also, in German, the word Heiland is sometimes used as reference to Jesus, e.g., in church chorals).

In the Book of Revelation in the Christian New Testament, God is quoted as saying “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End”. 2

In Messianic Judaism YHWH (pre-incarnate) and Yeshua (incarnate) are one and the same, the second Person, with the Father and ruach hakodesh (Holy Spirit) being the first and third Persons, respectively, of ha’Elohiym (the Godhead). YHWH is called haShem.

Some Quakers refer to God as The Light. Another term used is King of Kings or Lord of Lords andLord of the Hosts. Other names used by Christians include Ancient of DaysFather/Abba, “Most High” and the Hebrew names Elohim, El-Shaddai, Yahweh, Jehovah and Adonai. Abba (Father) is a common term used for the creator within Christianity because it was a title Jesus used to refer toGod the Father.

MormonismEdit

In Mormonism the name of God the Father is Elohim [19] and the name of Jesus in his pre-incarnate state was Jehovah.[20][21] Together, with the Holy Ghost they form the Godhead; God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.[22] Mormons typically refer to God as “Heavenly Father” or “Father in Heaven”.[23]

Although Mormonism views the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as three distinct beings, they are one in purpose and God the Father (Elohim) is worshiped and given all glory through his Son, Jesus Christ (Jehovah). Despite the Godhead doctrine, which teaches that God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are three separate, divine beings, many Mormons (mainstream Latter-day Saints and otherwise, such as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) view their beliefs as monotheist since Christ is the conduit through which humanity comes to the God the Father. The Book of Mormon ends with “to meet you before the pleasing bar of the great Jehovah, the eternal Judge of both the quick and dead. Amen.”[24]

Jehovah’s WitnessesEdit

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that God has only one distinctive name, represented in the Old Testament by the tetragrammaton. In English, they prefer to use the form Jehovah.[25] According to Jehovah’s Witnesses, the name Jehovah means “He causes to become”.[26]

Scriptures frequently cited in support of the name include Isaiah 42:8: “I am Jehovah. That is my name”, Psalms 83:18: “May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth”, and Exodus 6:3: “And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but with regard to my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them.”[27][28]

While opposers of the faith critique their use of the form “Jehovah”, Jehovah’s Witnesses still hold on to their belief that -despite having scholars prefer the “Yahweh” pronunciation- the name Jehovah adequately transmits the idea behind the meaning of God’s name in English. While they don’t discourage the use of the “Yahweh” pronunciation, they highly consider the long history of the name Jehovah in the English language and see that it sufficiently identifies God’s divine persona.[29][30]
