The personal name of God written in ancient Hebrew characters appears abundantly in early manuscripts of the Bible.
God’s name HWHY in the Hebrew letters used before the Babylonian exile
God’s name HWHY in the Hebrew letters used after the Babylonian exile.
Yehowah (YHWH, ) is God’s Name. In Hebrew, the divine name appears as four consonants, . Those four Hebrew characters—transliterated YHWH—are known as the Tetragrammaton.
Yehowah’s name appears some 7,000 times in the Hebrew Scriptures. * It is used more often than any title, such as “God,” “Almighty,” or “Lord,” and more frequently than any other name, such as Abraham, Moses, or David.
Malachi 3:16 At that time those who fear Yehowah spoke with one another, each one with his companion, and Yehowah kept paying attention and listening. And a book of remembrance was written before him for those fearing Yehowah and for those meditating on his name.
Isaiah 43:10, 11 “You are my witnesses,” declares Yehowah, “Yes, my servant whom I have chosen, So that you may know and have faith in me And understand that I am the same One. Before me no God was formed, And after me there has been none.
I—I am Yehowah, and besides me there is no savior.”
What about the 100’s of variations and languages God’s name has been translated into?
We will now fulfill the prophecy:
Zechariah 14:9 And Yehowah will be King over all the earth. In that day Yehowah will be one, and his name one.
Latinization of the Pronunciation of God’s name.
You are probably wondering about the “J” in the name Jehovah . Well, William Tyndale said that it is Iehovah in Latin.
In Latin, the letter J is a modern typographical convention for the consonant form of I. The letter I in ancient times represented either a vowel or a consonant.
Thank you to: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/J#Pronunciation_6
Sometimes one will see a “j” in Latin. Technically Latin has no letter J. It was introduced in the 13th century or thereabouts to differentiate between the vowel i and the consonant i. The consonantal i is like our y. “Major” in Latin is pronounced as MAH-yor. Until this last century, most printed Latin texts used the j to indicate the different sounds. Today the j’s are usually replaced with the more classical i’s.
The Hebrew letter vav
Most scholars agree that the ancient pronunciation of the letter was more like a “W” and less like the “V” that it currently represents in the Modern Hebrew language.
Get this: Today, translators would have said Iehovah not Jehovah and pronounced it Yehovah. How spiffy.
Mind bender from Google: If you are reading Latin as it was originally spelled, the letter i is sometimes this consonant “y,” and sometimes a vowel. For example, the name Iulius or “Julius” is pronounced “Yoo-lee-us.”
The Obfuscating of God’s Name
The cause of the confusion with the pronunciation of God’s name. The “w” in the name Yehowah was changed to a “v” via modern Hebrew and the ancient Latin “i” was changed typographically to a “j” and then back to an “i”.
How confusing for people to see Jehovah(YHWH)!
Yehowah’s Witnesses believe that William Tyndale was onto it, and he very much was but he used the modern Hebrew vav sound “v” and not the ancient vav sound “w”. Interestingly he got the vowel placement right. You have to love people who work on these things.
Evidence God’s Name is Yehowah
Hebrew names are rich in meaning:
(Jeʹsus) [Lat. form of the Gr. I·e·sousʹ, which corresponds to the Heb. Ye·shuʹaʽ or Yehoh·shuʹaʽ and means “Yehowah Is Salvation”].
Yehohshua contains the first construction “Ye” at the beginning of his name, which also confirms the vowel placement in God’s name.
(I·saʹiah) [means “Salvation of Yehowah”].
Isaiah contains the other construction at the end of his name, “ah”.
Ye-hoh-shu’a and I-sai’-ah
The vowel placement is obvious and so is the pronunciation.
How was the pronunciation of God’s name lost in the past. Superstitiously not pronouncing it at all. How is it being currently lost. By pronouncing it using the Latinized form.
The world has changed the pronunciation of God’s actual name.
Genesis 11:1 Now all the earth continued to be of one language and of one set of words.
So originally there was only one way to say God’s name.
It’s up to him but it seems to be Yehowah’s intention to restore things to the way they were originally. The Earth for example will be restored to Paradise conditions. Humans will be restored to perfection. So, it’s a safe guess that the language will be Hebrew.
Genesis 1:31 After that God saw everything he had made, and look! it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.
There is no reason to Latinize God’s name.
Since God created all the languages he understands the translation of his name. However the Hebrew Tetragrammaton is transliterated YHWH, even from Paleo Hebrew, not JHVH. Either that or we all pronounce God’s name using the Latinized form Jehovah. But I don’t think God intended to change the pronunciation of his name when he created the languages.
Malachi 3:6 “For I am Yehowah; I do not change. And you are sons of Jacob; you have not yet come to your finish.
There were only two question left. Was William Tyndale inspired by God? Is it really a “v” sound? Or…is more of the pronunciation incorporated into the name of the Son of God?
Thinking: Jesus – Yeshua – (Ye-shu’-wah)
Yehowah is salvation – Yeshua
God is very ingenius. He gave us the vowel placement clue in Jesus’ name. How would he pass on all the clues to his name to future generations who would invariably lose it again? You have to know Yehowah. He is a super genius. He gave us another clue, this scripture:
Concerning Jesus (Yeshua) we read:
Colossians 2:3 Carefully concealed in him are all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.
I’m going to give it to you between the eyes. God’s name is spelled Yehowah and pronounced Yehowah and I will show you “in Hebrew” the derivatives of God’s name that prove it is Yehowah and I’m saying the Son of God’s name proves the vowel placement and that it had a clue as to whether the vav sounded like a “v” or a “w”, incorporated right into it. (Ye-shu’-wah ) Yehowah always thinks of everything. Yes, Yehowah is that brilliant and did that. (Ye-ho’wah / Ye-shu’-wah) and in the other translation of Jesus Hebrew name (Ye-ho’wah / Ye-ho-shu’-wah) were phonetic clues.
Now, we also understand the name that is above every other name.
“Yehohshua” (Ye-hoh-shu’-wah) is Jesus’ Hebrew name because not only does it confirm the vowel placement, phonetically it actually contains the entire divine name Yehowah. Could there be a greater honor or a greater name? No wonder the Bible says he was given a name above any other name!
God sent his name from Heaven with his Son so we would never forget it again.
Philippians 2:9 For this very reason, God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every other name,
Yehohshua brought God’s love with him and his name.
I was stunned to realize it.
The Name That Is Above Every Other Name
Review: (Jeʹsus) [Lat. form of the Gr. I·e·sousʹ, which corresponds to the Heb. Ye·shuʹaʽ or Yehoh·shuʹaʽ and means “Yehowah Is Salvation”].
God’s name in Hebrew, Yehowah, means “He Causes to Become”.
Yehohshua’s name still means “Yehowah is Salvation” but also contains God’s name complete phonetically. With the power of the resurrection this gives it special meaning.
Yehohshua now has enough power of his own to materialize matter and resurrect a person to life. Prior to John 5:21 and John 5:25 this required Yehowah’s power backing him. Yes, that is how much power has been given him.
John 5:25 “Most truly I say to you, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who have paid attention will live.
God’s name and the name of the Son of God are now more closely related.
I will now go one step further and give the Son of God the name Yehohshua on Earth as it is in Heaven and that we must use it so that God’s name is never forgotten by anyone on Earth ever again.
May the name Yehowah, the True God and the name of the Son of God Yehohshua be blessed forever for what they have done for us. I am positive that Yehowah would want me to honor him this way.
The Memorial Tombs
The memorial tombs are God’s memory.
How will those in Yehowah’s memory hear Yehohshua’s voice?
Yehohshua has been appointed as judge. Our very lives are in his hands.
Yehohshua prays to Yehowah and informs him he wants to resurrect someone after judging them as righteous. Yehowah imagines the person as the person wishes to be. Then Yehowah imagines the perfect DNA code for that person and gives that information to Yehohshua. Yehohshua resurrects the person. Yehowah gives the person holy spirit and restores their memories.
Yehowah is described as “the examiner of hearts,” and Yehohshua, as the one who “searches the kidneys and hearts.”—Proverbs 17:3; Revelation 2:23.
Yehohshua understands everything about humans in complete detail, not just the human body. He understands our psychology, our emotions, our intellect, our spirituality and how they all work together and he has been a human and experienced it all personally.
He will judge us and if the judgement is favorable, bring us back to life. We are very much dependent on him for our life at this point.
This is the explanation of John 5:21,25,28,29
Everything is in order and makes logical sense. We are in God’s memory and Yehohshua has the power to resurrect a person so they are a living being. Yehowah must give the person holy spirit and restore their memories.
This is all scriptural and resolves John 5:21,25 and John 5:28.
One of Yehohshua’s titles is Mighty God or “mighty authority”. He is not Almighty like Yehowah, but Yehowah has made him the most powerful person ever created, able to materialize matter and bring a human to life. A living being. In other words, he can create people. Can you imagine how much Yehowah must trust Yehohshua with that much power? He trusts him implicitly that it will only be used for resurrecting faithful ones and in cooperation with Yehowah God.
Isaiah 9:6 For a child has been born to us,A son has been given to us;And the rulership will rest on his shoulder. His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
The power to create a living being. What rich meaning the name Yehohshua has. Yehowah’s name means “He Causes to Become” and he has given his Son Yehohshua the ability to create a living being. Something to meditate about.
The Meaning of God’s Name
Exodus 3:14 So God said to Moses: “I Will Become What I Choose to Become.” And he added: “This is what you are to say to the Israelites, ‘I Will Become has sent me to you.’”
But what about the older script? We must consider it.
The Hebrew verb HWH “to become”.
A number of scholars feel that it reflects the causative form of that Hebrew verb.
God’s name HWHY in the Hebrew letters used before the Babylonian exile
God’s name HWHY in the Hebrew letters used after the Babylonian exile
It is not a giant leap to put it all together and have it reconcile with Exodus 3:14
Using the causative form of HWH “to become” God’s name means “He Causes to Become”.
Bless the Name of Yehowah, The True God of Ancient Times.
He loves you more than you are able to understand. He wants you to understand that more than anything. You are so very precious to him.
Please have faith in him.
