--Sharing our Saviour Yahushua the Messiah to the World!--

 

-Please Read this FIRST- On this site we prefer to use the actual Name of our loving Heavenly Father as it was written in the Word, and thus you will note that we will use the Four Letter “Memorial Name” of   - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is  - Yahushua or Yahshua in short, for this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas - Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today! However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new “pagan church of Rome.” Occasionally, we may also use other Hebrew or Greek names as well as different words in our studies for certain common words used are from pagan backgrounds and thus are not suitable. All names will be translated when they are FIRST used in a study or at various times as needed for clarity. There is a full explanation of YHVH’s blessed “Memorial Name” as well as the wonderful blessed Name of our Messiah and Saviour, thus please read …The Memorial Name.”

The three levels of learning & understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the Lord God):

When we read and study the blessed Scriptures, the Word of YHVH Elohim as a believer in Yahushua the Messiah, we should keep the following three steps always in mind for they are a valuable guide and it will certainly provide us with guidance and illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness of YHVH’s most blessed Word.

1. Who was YHVH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, speaking to?

2. When was it said?

3. How was His Word understood at the time it was spoken/given?

I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of 1. What the Almighty is saying at the time – 2. As well as what it means to us today - and 3. Especially to you and me right now!

Introduction:

“Wherefore Elohim (God) also hath highly exalted Him and given Him a Name which is above every name. That at the Name of (the Messiah) every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Yahushua The Messiah is Master, to the glory of Elohim the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11.

It is without doubt that so many around the world genuinely love the name of “Jesus.” And as we travel the world, I hear the Name of the Messiah pronounced in many different ways - “Iesous, Jesu, Jesus, Jisu, Isua, Isa” and in Israel and some Asian lands, Yeshua, Yahshua, however the actual Hebrew Name that was given to Him in the Word is  - “Yahushua.”

Is it not strange that our blessed Messiah has so many variations when it comes to His Name? Yet, as I travel the around the world, I have just one name, and I am simply called “Reuben” in all English speaking countries as well as “Reuben” in Germany, Holland, Russia, Poland, Spain, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, the Americas, as it is in the Middle East!  And no one has ever called me Robert, Robby, Rudy or Roy.

We may ask a simple question; Why? Well the answer is that Reuben is my name and I have not chosen to change it to anything else, whereas some Eastern European migrants and some others may have made a personal choice to change their very difficult, let’s say their Eastern European sounding or an awkward name to pronounce to something more British, and that is fine, but that was their choice.! But, if every nation in the world is able to call me by my correct name, WHY then is it not possible to call our precious Saviour by His correct Name? For does He not have “the Name above every name?” Of course it is possible and we should call the Messiah by the Name, which His heavenly Father gave Him.

Many have asked me how did Messiah’s Name get changed from the original Yahushua to Jesus? This article will answer that very question, and although it will obviously be rather controversial for most ‘christians’ and I am well aware that there will be those who will bring forward a number of arguments in regard to it, but believe me, I have heard every one of them, and not one to date has had any validity, for you can and should translate words in order that we may understand what is written and what it means, but a name is a name and it does not require translation, Did our Saviour not ask us specifically – “Ask it in MY MAME and it shall be done.” Well beloved, have you?

Now let us look at just a few of the arguments presented to me in the past:

Let me take care of the main argument first, the one being – “But the Lord has blessed me when I have used the name of Jesus,” etc! There could be two possibilities here, one very positive and the other rather negative and this would depend where you are at, and how strong your faith is. 1. Yes, YaHVaH our Elohim, (the LORD our God) will have blessed you, for he does not punish those who are blameless and do not know any better. For let’s be honest, you will have been reading His Word and you have come to know His Son, and believe in the Messiah as Lord and your Saviour, thus He will bless you! Even though Messiah asks in the Word ask it in MY NAME, He would very much prefer we do ask it in His actual Name and not in a name that has been invented, for Jesus is not a translation from the Hebrew. However, Elohim does allow many in the Body to be blessed, for they are seeking His Word in Spirit and in Truth and they may even discover the blessed Memorial Name of YaHVaH, but in due course due to their faith, that of His only begotten Son, Yahushua The Messiah! Thus, if you have been using the name of Jesus in the past, fine, but it could now be the time to understand where it originates from and that is why our Saviour has led you to read this study NOW, for our heavenly Father wishes you to know His Son in fullness as He originally intended!

2. Others may have received some sort of fulfilment or request to prayers, but remember that Satan is a great counterfeit! What does the Word tell us?

“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9.

Thus, we could ask the question, “What does the name of “IESOUS” – “JESUS” really mean, and why was it changed from Yahushua?”

In Hebrew and Greek names always have a very precise meaning and nothing is there without a reason. We know that the prophets were given very specific names and when we study them we discover that they were indeed chosen men for their times. Here are just a few examples: Yirmyahu - Jeremiah means “Appointed of Yah.”  Zecharyah – Zechariah means “Yah protects.” Yeshayahu – Isaiah means “Salvation of Yah.” Each of these are such wonderful names and there are so many more, which will be found as you read the many studies online!

But, let me begin with the name “IESOUS”:

1. The Greek “IE” or “JE” has the sound of “Yeh,” is what is known as a “hail.” As we know, this is certainly not in any way related to the blessed Memorial Name - “Yah,” for it was deliberately changed.

An interesting note, according the Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend by J. C. J. Melford, page 126 it states that in the “Latin the word ‘JESU’ has been traced to an Hebrew word meaning a ‘curse be upon.’”

2. This leaves us with the “SOUS” or “SUS” part of the name. This word also has a very distinct meaning and this is the part that needs further investigation. We should be well aware that there are many other Greek individuals, cities, places and countless deities that have either all or part of this name, being “Sous,” “Seus” or “Sus” and the reality is that all three renditions are actually directly related to the name of the Greek god “ZEUS.” I am well aware that this will be a shock, but every time you pray “JeSus” what you unknowingly have said is … “Hail Zeus!” Remember that Satan has deceived the whole world and by that I do mean the whole church system! Satan used an evil man at the very beginning, during the days of the Apostles, a man who came from Samaria who was a sorcerer who did many tricks that looked like miracles, but when he saw Ya’akov – James preach and do real miracles in the Name of Yahushua, he was immersed and went to Jerusalem where in due course he met Shime’on – Peter, but he was rejected as he desired to buy his way in wanting to become an apostle. (read Acts chapter 8). This evil man Simon Magnus and not Peter went to Rome and set up the new Roman church and it was he who became the very first Bishop of Rome. He created the term “Christian,” “Christ” (taken from the pagan gods ‘Chrestos’ and ‘Chreston’) and as far as we know “IESOUS.” Shaul - Paul clearly confirms in his writings that Shime’on - Peter never went to Rome! (Read my study on Simon Magnus).

Satan also used men like the sun worshipping Emperor Constantine and the Nicene Council and the church hierarchy to destroy all that was good amongst the faithful followers of Messiah Yahushua as most were slowly murdered by them and the church throughout the ages!

Here are a few examples of Greek names that are related to “Zeus” such as the Greek hero of the Trojan War “Odysseus” and the Greek deity “Ieuseus” being a variant spelling of the Latin “IESUS.” There is the sacred mountain in Greece Parnassus, and the god of wine and the son of ZeusDionysus.” Other Greek words such as “Tarsus” mean the “sweat of Zeus” and then there is Pegasus and Ephesus all make mention of the god Zeus and the list just goes on for there are so many more!

Thus tragically our loving Saviour was renamed “JeSeus” – “hail to Zeus”, but as the centuries passed, there were those who used the name were totally unaware of its actual meaning and thus cannot be found guilty of its use, unless you continue to use it after reading this! This name was attributed to Messiah Yahushua by the pagan Roman church who was against anything that was remotely that even appeared to be from a Judaic origin; especially the keeping of the Seventh Day Sabbath and thus the “Mithra” or the “Sun” worshipping Emperor Constantine changed that by a law of force, under the cloud of punishment of death on March 7, 321 A.D. This was part of his (Blue law) statement:

On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.” (Codex Justinianus 3.12.3, trans. Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, 5th ed. (New York, 1902).

The Roman Papacy officially confirmed the Sunday law for The Council of Laodicea (governed over by Constantine) in 364 A.D. decreed,

“Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday but shall work on that day; but the Lord’s day they shall especially honour, and, as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out from Christ.” (Strand, op. cit., citing Charles J. Hefele, A History of the Councils of the Church, 2 (Edinburgh, 1876) 316).

This Roman pagan based church was not part of the apostolic Ecclesia that had been in existence since the time of Messiah Yahushua and had continued and does so until this day!

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His Name Yahushua, for He will save his people from their sins” Mattityahu - Matthew 1:21.

Yes, our Saviours Name is  - “Yahushua,” and His Name contains the blessed Name of His Father, “Yah,” whereas “ushua” means “save” or “salvation.” Thus, the name of Yahushua means, "YaHVaH (the eternal existing One) Saves.” The blessed Name of Yahushua is correctly pronounced … “Yah’hoe’Shoe’a.” One may say there is nothing wrong about the Name of Jesus as it is the Anglicised version of Yahushua. However, I make the point that all those who personally knew the Messiah and spoke with Him, called Him,  - “Yahushua.” You might say, “but the New Covenant is in Greek, and there it was written differently.” Well there is clear proof that the Gospels were originally written in Hebrew and they were later translated into Greek. And it was due to Greek not having a “Y” in its alphabet, it was therefore was written as “Iesou” or “Isous.” HOWEVER, how do we explain the next issue?

Joshua and our Saviour had the same name!

At this point I wish to point out, that there was ANOTHER man of Elohim (and several others) in the Word and his name was also “Yahushua.” This man’s name was also written as “IESOU” in the Greek. But, how was his name translated when it came to the English in the Word? There you will find it much closer to the original Hebrew, “Joshua.”  Thus the question arises. “Why was the name of our Saviour not written as Joshua in the Word, and why was it so it so dramatically changed that it no longer resembled anything like His real name?” The adversary (HaSatan) obviously did a very good job at using Rome and the many so-called intellectual scholars to hide the TRUTH for now Satan had this pagan inspired church, worshipping on the “venerable day of the sun” and praying, concluding with “a hail to zeus,” what a massive victory for Satan, who had in reality already been defeated at Golgotha, but he is still working to get as many as possible astray and into the grave “for the wages of sin is death!

Messiah or Christ?

It is also important to look at the best-known title or attribute of Yahushua, the “Christ.” You may have well noticed that this word “Christ” is never used in my teachings, be it from behind the pulpit or in writing. There are multiple good reasons for this.

“He (Yahushua) is Kurios of kurioon and Basileus of basileoon - He is Lord of lords and King of kings.” Revelations 17:14.

Considering this verse, why is it, when we speak about Yahushua, we use the term “Lord” or “Master” and not “Ku’ri’os,” … or “King” rather than “Bas’il’yeas”? You might say, well Reuben that is Greek, and beloved you are quite right! Thus, I will then ask the question, “why then use the Greek word Christ (from Christ’os) rather than its translation, Messiah”? We call Yahushua “Lord” and “King,” thus we should then clearly make clear to the world that He is our “Messiah” or the “Anointed” for that is what the Greek or the Hebrew word “Mashiach” means.

Please remember these terms are titles, or attributes of our precious Yahushua The Messiah and we should translate them into our language for full understanding. However, names should never be altered or changed, and we should use the wonderful Name YaHVaH Elohim gave our Messiah and Yahushua is His actual Name!

Another reason I do not wish to use the title “Christ” or “Christian” is 1. because of its origin “Chestos” which is the name of a pagan god. 2. and also due to the millions of Jewish lives and so many other of the faithful believers in Messiah who were known as the “protestors” that were slaughtered in the Name of “Christ” by the most evil “so-called christians” during the past two thousand years. Within Jewish circles, the word “Christ” and “Christian” is associated with “death,” and the “murder” of Jews throughout Europe. Jewish people think of Hitler as being “a Christian,” remember that he was a Roman Catholic, yet he, and his mostly Catholic and Lutheran followers were responsible for the death of some 40 million people, including 6 million Jews during World War II.

In addition, in today’s climate to say … “I am a Christian” has little to no meaning to the world, for so much evil has been done by those who are supposed to be “chistians” peodophiles priests and ministers in various churches, sexual crimes and so many other evils that have been done. I am well aware that this does not represent the whole, but it is what the majority of non-believers hears and sees on TV and remembers! We the faithful believers and followers in Messiah Yahushua understand the difference and we often use more meaningful statements. Rather saying that you are a christian, it would be better to define your faith in the Messiah Yahushua, for we know that the word “christian” has lost its meaning in the world, especially in these “the latter days.”

Recently whilst speaking with a man, he told me that he was a “christian,” however within minutes he commenced to tell me of his belief in Krishna and reincarnation. You need to know, Hindus, Buddhists, and even Muslims speak of “God” and “Jesus,” but this does not make them a believer and a follower of our Saviour Yahushua the Messiah. No way! This does not mean they know Him who is YaHVaH Elohim, the Creator and sustainer of life.

Thus, we as faithful believers in the Word of Elohim must stand apart from the world, as Messiah Yahushua has asked of us. We should return to the ways of old, and start calling YaHVaH Elohim and Yahushua by their Scriptural Names and titles. As one chorus goes, “There is power in the Name.” How true this is. Therefore, let us return to using “the Name above every name.” A Name greater than any - YaHVaH Elohim, and Yahushua The Messiah.

Blessed be the Sanctified Name of YaHVaH Elohim, the Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth. Blessed be the wonderful Name of Yahushua the Messiah, who died for us and rose again after three days and three nights, HalleluYah.

Thank You precious Yahushua, that all who believe in You and repented of their sins shall not perish but have everlasting life!

“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Yahushua died and rose again and so we believe that Elohim will bring with Yahushua those who have fallen asleep in Him.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14.

In Conclusion.

Beloved, this message and it contents was given to me by YaHVaH Elohim, for me to share with everyone who desire to know the truth of His Word, for Elohim desires you through His Word to “RETURN AGAIN TO ME” and once again call Him by His rightful Name! We must be aware Yahushua will come in this “LeDor Acharon” - the “Last generation” (Tehillim - Psalm 102:18) for the people of Israel has been in part restored to Zion and this is but the beginning of the prophecy. Therefore we have a big task ahead of us to proclaim the Word to a lost and sinful world, to the church, Jew and Gentiles alike, in order that many will be blessed and join the faithful in Messiah that we will be ready at the time when we shall meet Yahushua at the sound of the “trump” - “in the air.”

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trump of Elohim. And the dead in Messiah will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words" Thessalonians 4:16-18.

 “Teach me Your way, O YHVH. I will walk in Your truth.
UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR YOUR NAME!”

Tehillim – Psalms 86:11

                                                                                   

May YHVH Elohim bless and keep you in the palm of His hand always, in Messiah Yahushua’s loving Name!

Yahushua said; “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by Elohim. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father. I tell you the truth he who believes has everlasting life.” Yochanan (John) 6:43-48.
