A Witness Of
By Eliyah Collette
First of all, the bolded black underlined words are used for you to especially take notice, and this article is not written to judge others minds in their beliefs, but it is written for reproof, doctrine, and correction in righteousness.
Second, all scriptures is quoted from the Word Of YAHWEH edition, and with references from the restored names king James version with it’s center reference margin unless otherwise noted in this article. Also, we will be using the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance (S.E.C.) with it’s Hebrew dictionary numbers for references.
Third, we are going to use direct quotes of our SAVIOR YAH-SHUA, the Apostles, the Prophets, and from all the scriptures to let scripture interpret scriptures for us, we will also ask ourselves questions pertaining to certain texts of scriptures, and so you the reader of this article, try to answer these questions with scriptures without having to agree with the questions.
There is a growing number of people who question, even criticizing our using the true name of YAHWEH, and especially of our using the name of Messiah as "YAH-SHUA" claiming that the name "YAH-SHUA" is not even in the scriptures as the correct form name used in the scriptures as the true name of Messiah. Is it really true, that "YAH-SHUA" is not the correct name of Messiah? However, we will deal with the "name " of our Messiah in detail later in this article, but first let’s prayerfully, and honestly search the scriptures for the truth of the real name of Messiah in scriptures, who He really was and who He is today, the same as the noble Bereans who searched the scriptures daily to see if these things were so (Acts 17:11).
The Apostles were teaching from the Holy Scriptures, the only scriptures extant to them; and are able to make us wise unto salvation, as they are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness as Shaul (Paul) told Timothy in (2 Tim. 3:14-17). Question: Is the pure (holy) scriptures done away and no longer valid today as many think? Not according to this text by Shaul (Paul)!
Luke wrote of Messiah and said quote: "And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He (The Messiah) expounded (explained) unto them (His Apostles) in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself (The Messiah). ( Luke 24:27)".
MessiahHimself said quote: "These are the words which I (Messiah) spoke unto you, while I (Messiah) was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were (are) written in the law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me (Him-The Messiah-- Luke 24:44)".
Now please notice, and read this next text very carefully what Peter said of the real Messiah and His name in all the Prophets the same as the two texts given above: "To Him (The Messiah) give all the Prophets witness, that through His Name whosoever believes in Him shall receive remission of sins.(Acts 10:43)".This text plainly tells us, that all the prophets (not just one, two, or three prophets in scriptures, but all) give witness to Him-the Messiah, and through His name, and whosoever believes in Him, shall receive remission of sins (See also and compare with Jn. 3:11-21). Notice especially (Jn. 3:11,15,18).
Question: How can one receive everlasting life according to these texts above, and receive remission of sins (- transgression of the law or torah 1 Jn. 3:4) if anyone does not know His true name to believe in Him-the Messiah? Yet the critics tell us, that Messiah’s true name is not important to know? Can you receive this scriptural knowledge--Jn. 3:11?
We should reconsider the importance of knowing the SAVIOR’s true name. Why? I quote Messiah Himself, "Whosoever (any person) therefore shall confess Me before men, him (that person) will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven. But whosoever (any person) shall deny Me (Messiah) before men, him (or that person) will I also deny before my Father which is in Heaven." (Matt. 10:32-33; Luke 12:8-9).
Please compare this to (Rom. 10:9-10- If thou confess with thy mouth the Messiah YAH-SHUA, and believe in thy heart or mind, and that Elohim hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved) (Rev. 3:3-5; See also Rev. 2:13) quote, "Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast and repent……He (any person) that over cometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his (that person’s) NAME out of the Book of Life, but I will confess his (that person’s) NAME before my Father, and before His angels".
If people don’t know His true name how can they confess His true name to or before others to be saved? Also, if you deny His and the Father’s true name, and blot out the Father and Messiah’s true name out of the scriptures, as most traditional English translations have done, will He not deny your name before the Father in Heaven, and blot out your name from the Book of Life? (See Rev. 20:12). Selah- stop and think deep about this. Then how can you even be saved, and have your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? I think knowing His true Name is the utmost importance for salvation according to these texts don’t you?
The critics scoff at those of us who stand on Messiah’s own words when He said, "I am come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive (Jn. 5:43)." Did He only come in the authority of the Father, or did He really come bearing the Father’s name also? Let’s quote another text of Messiah, by the Apostle John, and the very voice of YAHWEH the Father answering Messiah in return, then ask a question to it. Our SAVIOR said, "Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from Heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." (Jn. 12:28-30; See also Jn. 17:3-6 ).
If the SAVIOR did not really come in the Father’s name as many claim, did not bear the Father’s name as many claim, then how was the Father going to glorify His own name AGAIN through the death and resurrection of His own Son, because iwvhy YAHSHUA= YAH (3050, 3068)-SAVIOR (3467) said, glorify thy (Father’s) name? Will you believe your SAVIOR and mine, including the Father too? Selah- stop and think on this deeply.
Questions The Pharisee’s Could Nor Would Not Answer.
The Messiah asked the Pharisees "What think ye of Messiah? Whose Son is He? The Pharisees say unto Him, the son of David. He Messiah said to them, how then doth David in spirit call Him Master, Sovereign (Lord), saying, YAHWEH said unto my Sovereign (Master, Lord), Sit thou on My Right Hand, till I make thy enemies thy footstool? If David then call Him Sovereign (Lord), how is He (Messiah) his (David’s) son? And no man was able to answer Him (Messiah) a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions. (Matt. 22:42-46). The Pharisees could not even understand these questions, however, Mark said "the common people heard (or understood) Him gladly."(Mark 12:35-37)
The Messiah quoted this from Psalms 110:1-5 and now we will let the scripture explain this text. Please understand, that all scriptures tell us that Messiah sits at the right hand of the Father YAHWEH, even Messiah told Caiaphas the high priest, scribes, and elders this (See Matt. 26:57,64; Mark 14:62; Luke 22:69), even Stephen said this while being stoned to death (See Acts 7:56). Now back to Psalms 110:1-5, however, let’s properly transliterate the correct names in these scriptures, but first you must understand, that the ancient scribes substituted the title of "Adonai" in place of the name of hvhy YHWH= YAHWEH more than 134 places in original Hebrew scriptures, as E.W. Bullinger and others will verify this, and Psalms 110:1,5 are examples of this substitution.
Notice Psalms 110:5 is correctly rendered in the Word of YAHWEH edition and "The Scriptures" version hvhy (K.J.V. uses LORD)=YHWH=YAHWEH (The Son) at thy (YAHWEH the Father’s) right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath. So Psalms 110:1 should read, "hvhy YHWH=YAHWEH (The Father) said unto my hvhy =YHWH=YAHWEH (The Son). Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool. Even Peter in his first sermon quoted from this text explaining about David who also was a prophet (Acts 2:30) but David was dead, and really Who this scripture was speaking of, as Whom the Messiah really was (See Acts 2:29-37).
It is no wonder these people were cut to the heart (Acts 2:37) when they understood that YAHSHUA was actually YAHWEH THE SON! It is also no wonder that the Pharisees were dumbfounded when Messiah YAHSHUA asked them these questions from Psalms 110:1-5!
Shaul (Paul) also quotes (Psalms 110:1-5) in (Heb. 1:9-14) proving that Messiah is YAHWEH the Father’s right hand in creating from the beginning (See Jn. 1:1-14), and that Messiah is not as an ordinary angelic being as Messiah inherited a more excellent name than they (What was that more excellent name?). The Messiah was and is YAHWEHSHUA the Son= YAH (3050, 3068 short for YAHWEH) SHUA (3467 meaning SAVIOR which gives us 3091), He is not the Father YAHWEH, but YAHWEH the Son, as both the Father and the Son have the same name in scriptures. (See also "The Scriptures" version on this text in Tehillim 110:1-5).
The Stone Of Stumbling Set At Naught Of The Builders.
The Apostle Peter absolutely understood this truth of scriptures as explained above, because in (Acts 2:21) Peter in his first sermon again quoted verbatim from the Prophet Joel 2:32 which says, "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name (singular form) of hvhy YHWH- i.e. YAHWEH (Remember, that the English versions use capitol LORD in substitute for YHWH) SHALL BE SAVED. Then, in (Acts 4:10-12) Peter uses the name (singular form again) of YAH-SHUA= iwvhy in verse 10, and in verse 11 Peter refers to the stone which was set at naught of you builders, which has become the head of the corner, compare this with (Isa. 8:14 What is His Name?; Dan. 2:34-35, 45) combined with (Psalms 118:22-29; Matt. 21:42; Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17-18), then in (Acts 4:12) Peter says, " Neither is there salvation in any other (Name or Person): for there is none other name (Again name is in singular form) under heaven given among men, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.
Question: Can there be two names in singular form, we must call upon, and SHALL BE SAVED of YAHWEH (Acts 2:21; Joel 2:32) or whereby WE MUST BE SAVED (Acts 4:10-12) of YAH-SAVIOR= YAHSHUA= YAHWEHSHUA, unless we understand that both names mean the one and the same? How else can you make (Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21) and (Acts 4:10-12) harmonize, unless you understand, that Peter understood both names to mean the same, in order to receive salvation, and remission of sins? Otherwise, these texts contradict each other, and we know that Peter never contradicted himself in the same breath (Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21) as compared to (Acts 2:29-37) and (Acts 4:10-12).
Notice that you have the same two names situation with Shaul (Paul) as with Peter, and Paul also quoted verbatim from the Prophet (Joel 2:32, in Romans 10:13). Notice first Paul quotes from (Isa. 8:14) in (Rom. 9:32 Who is this Stone and Rock? It is YAHWEH the Son.) the Stone of stumbling, and Rock of offence, then, notice the word of faith (Rom. 10:8-9) of quote "That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Master YAH-SHUA, and shall believe in thy heart (mind) that Elohim hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved. (Rom. 10:9 but read through up to Rom. 10:13). Notice the bold underlined in this text, then compare it with, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of YAHWEH shall be saved (Rom. 10:13). Again, did Shaul (Paul ) also contradict himself in the same breath as Peter did? No! Shaul also understood Who Messiah really was and Who He really is- He is YHWH our righteousness.
Who Is Called The Rock In Scriptures?
"Because I (Moses- who also was a prophet) will publish the name of YAHWEH, ascribe you greatness to our Elohim. He is the Rock, His work is perfect,….(Deut. 32:3-4). You will also read of the witness of Samuel the Prophet, of Hannah that called YAHWEH A ROCK (See 1 Sam. 2:2). You will read again from Samuel the prophet, that David spoke to YAHWEH and said, " YAHWEH is my Rock, my fortress and my deliverer, the HORN OF MY SALVATION, and SAVIOR (2 Sam. 22:1-4, See also 2 Sam. 22:32,47; 2 Sam. 23:3) See also Psalms 18:2; Psalms 62:2, 6-7. Shaul (Paul) also proves this to be true, when he said, " And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah. (1 Cor. 10:4) You will read of this in Ex. 17:2-6.
The Two YHWH’S In Scriptures.
You will read of TWO YHWH'S- i.e. TWO YAHWEH’s in scriptures. First you will read that Abraham spoke with YAHWEH face to face in Exodus Chapter 18, then, you will read, " Then YAHWEH (The Son) rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from YAHWEH (The Father) out of Heaven (See Genesis 19:24 under the TWO capitol LORD‘S, in that verse, in the traditional English translations. See also Psalms 110:1-5; Isaiah 44:6)
What Was The Name John The Baptizer proclaimed?
Please note first what Messiah Himself said of John The Baptizer, "But what went you out for to see? A Prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he (John the Baptizer), of whom it is written (in scriptures- See Mal. 3:1). Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee (The Messiah) See Matt. 11:9-10; Luke 7:26-27.
Also compare Matt. 17:10-13 with the PROPHET Mal. 3:1. concerning John the Baptizer coming in the ministry or spirit and power of Eliyah (Elijah) the Prophet, to prepare the way before the Messiah. The prophet Malachi 4:5 gives witness of the name of hvhy YHWH- i.e. YAHWEH (under the capitol ‘the LORD’ in the traditional English versions).
John the Baptizer said quote: "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of YHWH hvhy YAHWEH (The Name of YHWH=YAHWEH is substituted with ‘the LORD’ in the traditional English versions), as said Isaiah the prophet (See John 1:23; Luke 3:4; Mark 1:3; Matt. 3:3).
John The Baptizer quoted directly from the Prophet Isaiah 40:3, where Isaiah the prophet said, "Prepare ye the way of hvhy YHWH-i.e. YAHWEH….(The traditional English versions substitutes capitol ‘the LORD’ for YAHWEH ).
Even the angel Gabriel will bare witness and testimony to this same fact of scripture, that John the Baptizer would go before the Messiah, and proclaim the Name of YAHWEH, in Luke 1:26; 1:70-76.
Who And What Is The Name Of The SAVIOR According To Scriptures?
In Matt. 1:21 of the Old king James Version it reads quote: "And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shall call His name** 3 **______________ (What?): for He shall save His people from their sins. Also, Matt. 1:23. They shall call His name Emmanuel or El is with man or El is with us (See John 1:1-14).
If you look in the "center reference margin" of the O.K.J.V. of Matt. 1:21 you will see a ""3"" and it says, "THAT IS SAVIOR". So it actually says, "shall call His name SAVIOR"
The title of "SAVIOR" in Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary is number 3467, and if you go to Strong’s 3091 iwvhy which is the Messiah’s name, it is from 3068 see also 3050 (YHWH=YAHWEH) and 3467 (Ya(h)sha = yaw--and means SAVIOR) as Hebrew is read from "right to left" then you will see the first three Hebrew letters of Messiah’s name is the same first three Hebrew letters that is in the Father’s Name of YHWH hvhy Number 3068 when read from right to left.
You will also see from the short form name of YAH - yaw- YAHH is defined in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance by number 3050 hy YAHH -yaw- contraction for 03068, and meaning the same, the sacred (saving) name, see names ending with "iah" or "jah."
As you can see, this short form name of "YAH" that appears in scriptures about 50 times is in the Son’s name as it is in the Father’s name also, however, this is not all, if you look at Strong’s Hebrew number 3467 (which means SAVIOR) of Yasha - yaw- you will notice a "yaw" sound prefix the same prefix of yaw-shah , this is the same YAW that is in the sound prefix of YAH-yaw of 3050 the "H" is silent in Ya(h)sha. Also notice on pages 47 and 48 of Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary, 1985 edition, you will also see that all names beginning with "Yeh" and ending with Iah or Jah are actually "YAH" by looking again at the first and last three Hebrew letters when you read them from "right to left" without the ‘point markings’, and the ending Iah or Jah letters of the names. What about the name of "YESHUA"? This is Strong’s Hebrew number 3442 and Strong’s says is for 3091 again pointing us back to the original YAH SAVIOR.
Who and what is the NAME of the SAVIOR according to the scriptures of Isaiah the prophet? See Isaiah 45:17; Isaiah 45:21 of YHWH- i.e. YAHWEH, (under the capitol LORD in the traditional English versions).Who and what is the NAME of the REDEEMER? See Isaiah 44:24 of YAHWEH, (under capitol ‘the LORD’ in the traditional English versions).
Who is the BRANCH in Zechariah 6:12-13, and what is His Name really called according to Jeremiah the prophet? YHWH- i.e. YAHWEH our Righteousness. See Jeremiah 23:5-6. Who and what name is the Holy One that Peter mentioned in Acts 2:27; Acts 3:14? Read of His Name as YHWH i.e.- YAHWEH, under the capitol LORD in the traditional English versions, in Jeremiah 50:29, 51:5; See also Isaiah 48:17; Isaiah 49:7; Isaiah 54:5.
What Is The Name Of Him Whose Feet Will Stand On The Mount Of Olives?
Compare Acts 1:10-12 with Zechariah the prophet 14:3-4 which says, "Then shall YHWH- i.e. YAHWEH go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle, and His (YAHWEH’s) feet shall stand in that day upon the MOUNT OF OLIVES...
All the prophets in all the scriptures give witness and testimony, explicitly as both Messiah (Luke 24:44), Peter (Acts 10:43) as the true Messiah and His Name as YAHWEH SAVIOR or YAH SAVIOR i.e.- YAH-SHUA. Please prove to yourself any prophet in the scriptures, that give record witness, for the real Messiah's Name as being Jesus? The Messiah said, that He inherited all things from the Father, that included His Father's Name also. What is the Name of Him that is called the first and the last, and the Aleph and Omega?
See, read and compare of the two YAHWEH’s again in Isaiah 44:6, and compare with Revelation 1:8; Revelation 1:11; Revelation 21:6; Revelation 22:13. All the Prophets do not give witness to the Messiah and His Name as being Jesus or any other Name but YAH (WEH) SHUA or YAH-SHUA.
Who Is The Word?
In the beginning was the Word (YAHWEH the Son), and the Word (YAHWEH the Son) was with ElOHIM (YAHWEH the Father), and the Word (YAHWEH the Son) was Elohim. The same (The Word- YAHWEH the Son) was in the beginning with Elohim (YAHWEH the Father). All things were made by (or through) Him (YAHWEH the Son); and without Him (YAHWEH the Son) was not anything made that was made. In Him (YAHWEH the Son) was life; and the life was the light of men…..He (YAHWEH the Son) was in the world, and the world was made by (or through) Him (YAHWEH the Son), and the world knew Him (YAHWEH the Son) not. He (YAHWEH the Son) came unto His (YAHWEH the Son’s) own, and His (YAHWEH the Son’s) own received Him (YAHWEH the Son) not….And the Word (YAHWEH the Son) was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His (the Word-YAHWEH the Son) majesty, the majesty as of the only begotten of the Father-YAHWEH) full of grace and truth. Compare this with John 1:1-14, and remember to look in the prophets who said, "The Word of YAHWEH came unto me saying…" Now you know Who really was the Word of YAHWEH that came to the prophets of old.
Our SAVIOR said, "And the Father (YAHWEH) Himself, which hath sent Me (The Messiah- YAH-SHUA), hath borne witness of Me (Him the Messiah--See John 5:37). Selah- stop and think, the Father YAHWEH had to have a Son before, or the Father could not had sent Him in flesh into the world. Do you realize how many times in John’s Epistle where the words "hath sent me" appears? Now back to John 5:37 for the rest of "Ye have neither heard His (YAHWEH the Father’s) voice at any time, nor seen His (The Father YAHWEH’s) shape (John 1:18; John 5:37). Why? Because the Father is Spirit (John 4:24) and He is invisible (1 Tim. 1:17). Now to Whom did the Patriarchs of old speak to and see? It was YAHWEH the Son, the Word, the very same who later became the SAVIOR- the Messiah YAH-SHUA, and how simple to understand, YAH is short (3050,3068- for the same name He inherited from the Father YAHWEH) and SHUA (3467) for SAVIOR. It’s no wonder that the Apostles were forbidden to preach this, and no wonder they were murdered, imprisoned, and persecuted. However, the true SAVIOR also prophesied that we will be hated of all Nations for His true Name sake.
The Apostles knew and understood this, and true enough as Peter stated in (Acts 10:43) of all the prophets do bare witness of the Messiah, and look above at what a cloud of witnesses there be that prove this! For whosoever shall call on the Name of YAHWEH or YAH SAVIOR YAH-SHUA shall be saved Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21; Acts 4:10-12; Romans 10:13. But how can the common people call on Him of Whom they have never heard or understood His true Name? And how shall they confess His true Name to others, if they have not been told His true Name? Then, how shall they receive remission of sins, and receive salvation, unless those of us who know His true Name boldly proclaims it to the common people? May YAHWEH the Father grant us the boldness to proclaim His truth. HalleluYAH!
