IMPORTANCE OF USING THE NAMES

Our Heavenly Father clearly wants his people to use his name.

Here is one of the first statements from Yahweh about using his name: (in Hebrew and then the English translation)

Exod 3:15 (Hebrew)

Exodus 3:15 "And said also {The Mighty One} to Moses, 'say to the children of Israel, YAHWEH, {Mighty One} of your fathers, {Mighty One} of Abraham, {Mighty One} of Isaac, and {Mighty One} of Jacob has sent me to you; THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation."

We are also told in Psalms to use his name:

The name of Messiah, the son, is Yahshua, which means "Yahweh is salvation" or "Yahweh saves". When we use this name we are honoring Yahweh, because we are actually saying "Yahweh is salvation".

Yahshua always directed the focus toward his father. And we now see, even in his name, he directs the focus toward his father.

Names are not normally translated from one language to another, but transliterated; spelled in the second language so it is pronounced as in the original language. We would call Jose, Jose and Angelo, Angelo; the same is done with Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and Saddam Hussein. From what we have seen explained about the names of the Almighty Father and his Son, these names should be given honor and pronounced as in the original language; especially "Yahweh", since he said this was his name forever. So many names have been transliterated in the Bible; the Prophets, the Patriarchs and even Satan! Why then was the name "Yahweh," which is more important than all of these, substituted with "The LORD" or "God" in direct defiance to the first three scriptures at the top of this page?

Salvation in no other name:
Joel 2:31 (ASV) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Yahweh cometh. 32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be delivered; for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as Yahweh hath said, and among the remnant those whom Yahweh doth call. [Verse 31 is clearly an "end time" statement.]

Acts 4:10 (KJS) Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Yahshua the Messiah of Nazareth, whom ye impaled, whom Yahweh raised from the dead, [even] by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. [Since the name "Yahshua" means "Yahweh is salvation", saying "Yahshua" still calls upon (evokes) the name of Yahweh.]

AS ONE SHOULD NOW SEE, USING THESE NAMES, AND NOT SUBSTITUTES, IS VERY IMPORTANT!
