This article is a lengthy response I made to a youtube video I saw today. The title of the video was and I quote, "I've Denounced Christianity! Following Yahuah!
(CAPS ADDED TO SOME SCRIPTURES FOR EMPHASIS)
The Lord helped me prepare my response which is now this blog article after listening to this beautiful young lady who seems to be sincere in her beliefs this afternoon. I hope it helps her to rethink her stance or maybe help someone else who has been thinking about this whole sacred name movement and the Hebrew roots movement.
I almost got caught up in it myself but I always prayed and most of all stuck to the written WORD of God which is our SWORD of the SPIRIT! Ephes 6:17
[Ephesians 6:17 NASB] 17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Glory to God! If you ever wonder about anything that doesn't seem right just trust the Spirit of God to lead you to the WORD! That's why we have it. That's why he had it preserved for us. Many died so that we could have his WORD at our disposal.
2Timothy 3:16-17 says,
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Not all Christians are under a so called denomination which was a big part of your argument. Many of us know truths like the true Sabbath among other things that are not taught in some churches. But what I found so interesting in my search for truth is that God has been gathering in the Gentiles since the days of Pentecost. In fact, on the day of Pentecost, the disciples were speaking the good news in the languages of the people that were present. Acts 2 bears this out.
[Act 2:4-5, 7-8, 11 KJV] 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. ...
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? ... 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
You may say you feel sorry for Christians but I feel sorry for you that you have turned your back on Jesus Christ the Messiah. When I searched for truth about all the hoopla over the name of my Lord JESUS CHRIST Messiah, I was led to read Daniel Chapter 7 which speaks about the Son of Man.
We know who that is don't we? It is none other than the Son of God, Jesus Christ Messiah also known as Yeshua Ha Mashiach or Yehoshuah, or is it Yahoshua, or Yahushua. When you get down to it, they are all transliterations of languages. But I was amazed at what the Holy Spirit was saying to me in this scripture
[Dan 7:13-14 NIV] 13 "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a SON OF MAN, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.
14 He was GIVEN AUTHORITY, GLORY and SOVEREIGN POWER; ALL NATIONS and PEOPLES OF EVERY LANGUAGE WORSHIPPED HIM. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed."
Our beloved Saviour Jesus Christ has been given power and authority over ALL NATIONS and over every LANGUAGE. It didn't say ONE language to worship him but EVERY language. That is the KEY! No matter what language, it is .
In the end when everything is said and done, He will reveal the name that ONLY he knows. NO ONE KNOWS the true pronunciation of YHWH, no one living today. He promises to reveal it to those who at his COMING are the overcomers.
[Rev 3:12 KJV] 12 "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] MY NEW NAME."
Two last scriptures I am led to share here for someone that is searching for the truth about the sacred name movement which is a tactic of the ANTI_CHRIST movement. What is so amazing is that the Lord warns us of these things so that we will know ahead of time and understand and not be swept away by these things.
First let me say that there are TRUE Christians who ABIDE in Christ Jesus, who have a real relationship with HIM. He says, anyone that abides in HIM has the Father but if anyone DENIES him, they don't have the Father because HE IS THE WAY, the ONLY WAY to the FATHER. You deny him, forget it. You're lost.
Also it is not the TRUE Christians that are denying his name of JESUS CHRIST the MESSIAH. Jesus himself says the ones denying HIS NAME are of the SYNAGOGUE of SATAN., those saying they are JEWS. I mean need I say any more. The shoe FITS perfectly to this movement against JESUS Christ who is the TRUE LIGHT. If you appreciate the LIGHT you will see the truth and it will set you free. Notes his words below:
[Rev 3:8-9 NKJV] 8 "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have NOT DENIED MY NAME. 9 "Indeed I will make [those] of the SYNAGOGUE of SATAN, who say they are JEWS ** and are not, but lie--indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
**(JUST FOR CLARITY AND DISTINCTION, I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT IN MY RESEARCH I'VE FOUND MOST WHO PROMOTE IN REJECTING THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST CALL THEMSELVES HEBREWS OR JEWS.
We speak English and God is not upset with the fact that the NT scriptures of the bible were written in the KOINE Greek language which HE ALLOWED because that's what most JEWS and people in the area spoke. These scriptures were later translated into Latin and then into our language of English.
OK so our language has the letter J. In translation, the Greek Iesous was changed to Latin, Iesus. English speaking translators changed the I to J which is how we got the name of Jesus. And you think our Lord doesn't allow for that when he has dominion over every nation, power and tongue.
All the languages of the world are in his hand as we read in Dan 7:14 above. The Lord has assured me that He receives my praise and worship as I call him by the name I read in my bible every day and was taught which is JESUS CHRIST MESSIAH.
I have no problem with calling my Lord by his Hebrew name, as I learned it as Yeshua Ha Mashiach or Yehoshua. As a matter of fact I think it's a beautiful name no matter what language and I really do love his Hebrew Jewish name. But when we are judged by this movement of people who choose to deny his name in other languages which clearly is not taught in the bible
that I don't agree with.
And to be honest, I'm not sure about this NEW name, I can't say one way or another. I pray that you who are reading this and have abandoned calling on the name of Jesus for a new name, a different name, I hope you will do more research on your own with the Holy Spirit's guidance and see if you still believe as you do about our Lord Jesus Christ. It's all about HIM as a person, not about what other people are doing or not doing.
I've done lots of research myself and prayed about this very subject. Meditate on the following scriptures
[2Co 11:3-4 NIV]
3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and PREACHES a JESUS OTHER THAN the JESUS we preached, or if you receive a DIFFERENT SPIRIT from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
[1John 2:18-29 NIV] 18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the ANTICHRIST IS COMING, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They WENT OUT FROM US, but they did NOT really BELONG to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist--denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
24 As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 And this is what he promised us--eternal life. 26 I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.
27 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him. 28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. 29 If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him.
That scripture is so timely today and it saddens me that people are falling for another name that just came on the scene what in our day and time around 2007. That's when I noticed it really started getting passed around on youtube as a teaching.
But again I say I hope and pray you reconsider, pray about it and meditate on all the scriptures I've put here for you or maybe it's someone else that needs this information. This information will be on my website morning manna with love.com if anyone reads this and would like more information.
There are many deceiving spirits out here promoting lies and confusion all for one purpose, to draw you away from JESUS CHRIST MESSIAH. It's the ANTI-CHRIST spirit. The same spirit was already infiltrating the church during the bible days and it's going headstrong today. I am a believer in Jesus Christ and PROUD of it. There is no other NAME above that name in whatever language we may speak.
It was said that Christians teach we're not to obey the commandments of God. I don't know what Christian church teaches that out right. As a Christian from my own personal bible study I read where it says we are to keep his commandments which means that we truly love him. His commandments are not burdensome. It's all about LOVE, the SIMPLICITY in CHRIST is amazing.
My understanding is you also partly left Jesus Christ not only because of his name but you left because of what others were doing or not doing in their walk with the Lord. We must each work out our own salvation with fear and trembling by studying the Word for ourself and spending time with Him. I'm not a part of organized religion. I was led to come out of Babylon the Great. I remain focused on him and him alone. It's all about my relationship with HIM. That's all he wants with each of us.
