“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him…” Psalm 91:14-15
Most modern Bibles cover the name of the Creator. The name of God is replaced with the title Lord, usually in all caps.
Reading the Hebrew Bibles you’ll discover that the name of Elohim is “YAHWEH/YAHUVEH”.
Where the Hebrew has the name of GOD present, read your KJV, NIV and many other translations and you’ll discover that the name of YAH is replaced with “LORD”.
Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. Psalm 68:4, KJV
20Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. 22But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. Exodus 23:20-22, KJV
3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1 : 3-4, KJV
8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: Philippians 2: 8-9
“And given him a name which is above every name” – is the Name of the Son greater than the Name of the Father? The name of the son is YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, and it contains the name of GOD the Father, YAHUVEH – which is the name above every name.
WHY WE USE THE SACRED NAMES OF
YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA and SHKHINYAH GLORY
Revised September 28, 2009
These Scriptures are out of the New King James Version Bible.
Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘ For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’”
Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him.

Over the last few years we have received Prophetic Words that the anti-christ will use the name Jesus Christ in the Great Tribulation. Once the anti-christ is revealed and is using the name Jesus, YAHUVEH will NOT hear any prayers said in the name of Jesus. How could HE when the anti-christ is using this name and deceiving billions. You must use the Sacred Names of YAHUSHUA and YAHUVEH/YAHWEH in the Great Tribulation or your prayers will NOT be heard.
We are posting the excerpts from the Prophecies that refer to the Sacred Names and especially why you don’t want to use the the Name of Jesus Christ in the Great Tribulation. This is a must read. This is very important for the troubled times ahead!
Prophecy 77 – BEHOLD I, YAHUVEH, SEND YOU FORTH
When they call upon MY Son, not just in the name of Jesus Christ, but when they honor the heritage I gave them on this earth. For HE came from the line of David, HE came as a Hebrew, so teach them. I want HIM to be honored and called by his Name YAHUSHUA. I make a promise and I make a vow, those that will obey, those that call themselves Pentecostals, you are scattered world wide, this is what satan shudders and shakes over. If you just receive the truth of the Jewishness of the Messiah you have given your life too.
Prophecy 83 – I, YAHUVEH, SAY “PREPARE, THE END IS NIGH!”
All who are invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, I have this warning for you, in the Great Tribulation the one coming that is commonly called the anti-christ, who is truly the son of satan, the son of perdition, he will come using and counterfeiting the name that is known world wide, in every kindred and tongue the name that Christians know and love the name of Jesus Christ.
[VERY IMPORTANT! READ THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY]
Beware, signs, wonders and miracles are still done and souls are still being saved in the name of Jesus Christ, do not fear. However, it was not yet the endtime and you were only held accountable for what you were taught. I, YAHUVEH, honored and anointed the name “Jesus,” although MY Son YAHUSHUA was given a Hebrew Name by HIS Hebrew mother. And I am HIS Father; HIS Name is to contain MY Name YAH. The name of Jesus has deleted MY Sacred Name, the Name that is above all Names. MY Name is YAHUVEH and the Name of YAHUSHUA translates to a constant reminder in every tongue YAH saves! Is it not your custom to name the Son after his father? Why do you think it is any different for your Heavenly Father to do the same? It is a constant reminder to you that I, YAHUVEH and MY Son, YAHUSHUA, are one.
It is satan and his servants that fear the Name YAH, but I know MY Children’s loving hearts. I even forgave you for forsaking MY true Sabbath rest day, breaking the 4th Commandment again and again, but I will forgive this no more. Now you are held accountable for what you know. You are held accountable to warn others. There is a higher sacred anointing in the Hebrew Name of YAHUSHUA and in MY Name, YAHUVEH. Now the endtime is nigh and I warn you teach others what you now know as truth. There is more anointing in OUR Holy Sacred Names. Use them, make no more excuses. During the Great Tribulation you must call upon MY Son’s Hebrew Name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. MY Name YAH is in HIS Name, the Name above all Names.
If you do not learn this now, in the Great Tribulation when you pray for deliverance, or healing, and you use the name “Jesus,” remember that the son of satan will be using this name as God. How can you expect to be healed, delivered or blessed by using the same name that the son of satan will be using? You will be calling upon the son of satan and know it not.
The only true healing, signs, wonders, miracles and resurrections come from Heaven, any other healing or deliverance is an illusion, and during the Great Tribulation there will be illusions that appear to be truth but are lies straight from the throne of satan. Learn now and warn others now. In the Great Tribulation only in the name of YAHUSHUA, not the name of Jesus, will true delivering, healing, resurrection power come forth. People who love and serve “Jesus” now will wonder why their prayers are not being answered their faith will suffer and they will even die for their faith, not understanding why deliverance did not come in that name.
Warn them now so they will become accustomed to using the Hebrew Name YAHUSHUA, and YAHUVEH and the RUACH ha KODESH. Satan does not want to counterfeit the Name YAHUSHUA with MY Name YAH in it.
All others who deny this Word, even though they claim to love Jesus and yet refuse to learn the Hebrew Sacred Names, Sabbath, and Holy Days and feasts. They will continue to nurse on milk for they don’t want spiritual teeth to eat this Spiritual meat. In the Great Tribulation they will remember what they had read and some will repent and know this Ministry was truly Heaven sent. For MY beloved Babies, Bride, Chosen Ones and Elect, look up, your redemption draweth nigh. One way or another you will be coming back home to Heaven again.
Prophecy 84 – BEWARE OF THE ILLUSION!
Just because the Greeks gave MY Son a name, just because the King James Bible repeated the name of Jesus Christ again and again does not mean that HIS Name was changed. It will always remain a Hebrew Name, a Name that holds the Name of I, YAHUVEH. I, YAHUVEH a Name that is a reminder to this earth of the price MY Son YAHUSHUA had to pay. Again, I’ll say it again and again and again and again and again, you can call this prophet blasphemous, you can slander her, you can say that she’s going to hell, but I tell you this I, the King of Creation, I the Holy Eternal One, tells you this, HIS Name that is above all Names, is named after I, YAHUVEH. I, YAHUVEH it means ‘YAH SAVES.’
Nothing has changed. Because I honored the name of Jesus Christ. Because I anointed the name of Jesus Christ. Because I saved in the name of Jesus Christ. Because I delivered and did signs, wonders and miracles in the name of Jesus Christ. Because I still do it in the name of Jesus Christ does not mean that you are not to know HIS True Hebrew Name. You will and you are held accountable for what you know. Because I allowed all this time for you to assemble and call Sunday MY Sabbath day, I did the same thing, I allowed it. It was not MY will, I allowed it. But in the Great Tribulation satan is going to show you how he is going to counterfeit. [Beware the Sunday Churches]
For again I say, even the very wealthy evangelists who know this truth have sold out this truth, have compromised this truth, will lead you right into the arms of the anti-messiah, the son of satan. And they will say, “That’s Jesus Christ, that’s your Messiah, he’s come. He’s come and now peace is all over this earth, don’t worry about Hell.” Why can’t you see? They don’t want to counterfeit ME. MY Name is YAH. King James will pay. King James has paid when he blotted out MY Son’s Sacred Name. READ! READ! READ! Study and show thyself approved. It was not always King James, read the Holy Manuscripts. Read where the Hebrew translations are. Read where even the Aramaic know HIS Name. WHY? WHY? WHY will you not believe?
So much suffering the Christian church is going to go through because they threw out the Messianic Jews. And you of the Messianic Jewish synagogues, I point MY finger also to you. You, who took out MY Name YAH and said, “Yeshua will do.” You didn’t want to offend the orthodox Jews. You compromised. You who call this Prophet of MINE speaking a Sacred Name user, you’re right, that’s why I anointed her and not you. You who dare to spell MY Name ‘G-d.’ What is that? What is that supposed to mean to ME? You even take away MY Deity and then you wonder, where are the miracles of old?
Prophecy 89 – SECRETS OF THE RUACH ha KODESH
When you read in the Word that’s been translated and they dare to call MY Son YAHUSHUA, the son of man. He was never the son of a man. HE’s the Son of YAHUVEH! The Son of YAH! When you see this in the translation, for how long now I have caused you to grieve and you have never felt peace in this and yet you explain all the translations do this. It was not by MY hand! This is by satan’s plan. Although HE was born in a human frame, although HE suffered on the cross the pain HE was never, never, never the son of man! HE’s the Son of YAH and HIS Name, even to the world proclaimed. Why do you think satan in the translation, tried to regulate HIM and give HIM the name of a man. I’ve had to allow this and at this time before the Great Tribulation the name of Jesus will stand.
Oh, but in the Great Tribulation those who are saved now and have been living Holy before ME, MY spirit is within them, just as you were saved in the Name of Jesus, you’d still be calling upon HIM in that Name. And do not misunderstand ME, there is power, Heavenly power to back up that Name because of the mercy of your ABBA YAHUVEH. But in the Great Tribulation so many shall die, even though they are saved now, so many will wonder why their prayers are not answered. It is not because WE do not love them. And I do not speak of those who will go to the Sunday churches and will take the MARK, I speak to those who will call out in the Name of Jesus, who know that HE was the one that was crucified and rose again from the dead and on the 3rd day did arise.
Wait for them in Heaven. But they must understand while now there is power in that Name, there will be no power then in that Name. That doesn’t mean for those who are still walking Holy before ME they will not return to Heaven, but it means I cannot answer them as I said it is MY anointing, like blowing a kiss to ABBA YAHUVEH that their prayers are answered but on that day I cannot back up the words they say for there will be another on the face of this earth who will say, “I am Jesus.”
And although I know what Jesus they speak and call to, because that name will be as a curse, their prayers will not reach Heaven and they will wonder why. This is why you are warning them now. This is the importance of that Hebrew Name. You see satan does not want to use the Name YAH. Oh, I have many enemies out there who now dare to operate their ministries and use the Name YAH to deceive the wolves and the lambs. But the son of satan does not want to use the Name YAH, he wants to use the name that the world became familiar with and that was the name of J-E-S-U-S.
So although those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, during the Great Tribulation, they will return to Heaven. It will mean they have to give their life but they will never, ever enter into a Sunday church or their name will be blotted out. And there will be no salvations at that time in the name of J-E-S-U-S; it will only be in YAHUSHUA. Some will say YAHSHUA. But the Name YAH will not be left out.
For the anointed 144,000 will not be teaching the name of J-E-S-U-S. This is now. That will be then. I’ve given you this message to warn again. That’s just like now, that doesn’t mean all those who attend the Sunday churches do not belong to ME, are not filled with MY Spirit, but it does mean in the Great Tribulation it will not be allowed for this is where they sell out to the Beast. Do you understand? Souls are saved now in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I anoint in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I heal in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. I deliver in the Name of J-E-S-U-S. But that will not be then.
Warn them. How could I answer them? How could MY Son YAHUSHUA answer them? When they scream out, “Jesus, help me,” and the son of satan is there, and says, “Here I am.” They will say, “Jesus save me, forgive me of my sins!” And the son of satan will say, “Here I am.” Can you not see the danger? Can you not understand? You do not know the grief that I will feel when those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, who know better than to go to the Sunday churches will run and hide, and will have to give their lives because they will be crying out and they will refuse to say the Name of YAHUSHUA.
They will hold onto what they were taught and they will say the Name of Jesus and their prayers will not reach Heaven for I will not blow them like a kiss because the son of satan will cry out, “Here I am.” This does not mean their name is blotted out. It merely means I cannot save their life. I cannot hide them. I cannot feed them. I cannot deliver them.
This is why I raise up ministries such as this that teach the Name of YAHSHUA, that teach the Name of YAHUSHUA. It doesn’t matter. So many refuse to speak the name the way I’ve given you but the Name YAH cannot be left out for even HIS Name means “YAH Saves.”
I gave you the dream when the flying saucers come truly they are satan’s army but they have a right to those who will cry out in the wrong name because he (son of satan) will claim “Here I am.”
So beware, now it has already started. There is one who has risen up. He has a world wide following and he calls himself Jesus Christ. But the key is he throws out all that is Holy. Beware of the one coming, for this one is just a mere man, but beware the one coming for it will be as Judas has returned once again and he is truly the son of satan, the son of lucifer.
Warn them now. There is a time and there is a season. You will know when to let this Word go. But Elisabeth, never again will you have to crave the love of a mother for I have showed you I have filled that void.
Prophecy 90 – What Is The Name Of The RUACH HA KODESH?
Elisabeth, I am your MOMMA SHKHINAH GLORY. I am the one that anoints you for signs, wonders and miracles that includes prophesying and praying in Holy tongues of men and Holy Angels. I am your MOMMA SHKHINAH GLORY. I am the one that intercedes for all the Holy Children as I carry your prayers to the throne of YAHUVEH like a Kiss is blown in the air, when it is done in the Name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH this also includes the name of JESUS CHRIST for now, but beware, because the son of satan in the Great Tribulation will counterfeit the name of JESUS CHRIST. I will not be able to send the prayers at that time in JESUS’ name, because the devil’s spawn will also be using the name of JESUS CHRIST. Teach now the Sacred Hebrew Name of YAHUSHUA and YAHUVEH to all who have spiritual ears to hear, listen and obey. Learn and become accustomed to use the true Hebrew name of the one most call JESUS CHRIST, now before it is too late. Tell the people don’t wait until the Great Tribulation to learn it the hard way.
Shout it until they hear and the message rings around the world, in the Great Tribulation there will be a great deception and at that time, no longer will YAHUVEH be able to answer prayers in the name of JESUS CHRIST, only in the Hebrew Name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH will hold healing, delivering, resurrection power. Because the one who is called the son of satan will use and deceive millions upon millions doing false signs, wonders and miracles while counterfeiting the name of JESUS CHRIST before the world. Even the elect will be deceived if possible. Beware, right now there are evil men with the spirit of the anti-christ and they use the name of JESUS CHRIST but they hate the Hebrew Name of YAHUSHUA for it is a constant reminder that YAH saves! YAHUSHUA is the only MASHIACH (Messiah).
End of the excerpts from the Prophecies
This is added also on September 28, 2009 from Elisabeth
Many people have written and asked (since this Ministry only uses the name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH) if they can still use the name JESUS CHRIST. I was writing this answer to a new Brother in YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, named Alex and the anointing hit me. I wrote all the answers to questions we have received in regard to using the Sacred Hebrew Names.
Question: Even though this ministry only uses the name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, can I still use the name JESUS CHRIST?
Yes, you can use the name Jesus Christ but why would you want too? As the Prophecies tell us, if you’re here for the Great Tribulation, the antichrist will come using the name JESUS CHRIST because the antichrist will proclaim to be HIM. In the Great Tribulation when Christians use the name JESUS CHRIST aloud in prayer, it will be the antichrist that appears and will know everything that is being prayed for.
When the name JESUS CHRIST will be used by Christians aloud in prayer, the antichrist will have unholy powers from satan and will know where the Christians are hidden –as soon as the name JESUS CHRIST is spoken.
This is why now is a good time to get in the habit of learning and using the true Hebrew name the Virgin Mary (her Hebrew name is Mariam) gave to her Hebrew Baby. Please don’t misunderstand, right now YAHUVEH –who you might know as JEHOVAH the Heavenly Father, and when you see the name ABBA YAHUVEH know that it means FATHER YAHUVEH— is merciful and HE knows that all of us only had the King James Version of the Bible to learn from. So most of us learned “JESUS CHRIST”, the Greek name given to Him. I am no exception.
When I gave my life and soul to YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH 25 years ago in an Assembly of God Pentecostal Church, I was saved, baptized and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT in the name of JESUS CHRIST. When YAHUVEH chose me to give birth to this Ministry nearly 15 years ago on the Internet and I became an ordained Apostle/Pastor, it was in the name of JESUS CHRIST. When I first started prophesying, it was in the name of JESUS CHRIST. I called this Ministry by the Greek name ALPHA & OMEGA ALMIGHTYWIND HOLY GHOST FIRE CHURCH; the Hebrew is ALEPH & TAV.
I was part of the organized Church system and did not know that Christmas was not the true day that JESUS CHRIST was born and that Easter Sunday was not the true day HE arose from the dead. I did not know Sunday was not the true Sabbath Day of rest –which we are commanded to honor according to the 4th commandment. I was teaching what I learned from the Pentecostal Churches and believed if I could just get people to say the salvation prayer, they would all go up in the rapture and not go through the Great Tribulation.
When this Ministry first started out I had never heard of the Jewish Holy Days that we are commanded to follow or that JESUS CHRIST was symbolized in each one of them. Only a matter of months after the birth of this Ministry, I realized this Ministry was to be used as an outreach to both Jew and Gentile and to teach the Jewishnes of our MESSIAH.
YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH was patient with me; HE brought a woman named Wendy into my life who taught me what she was learning about being a Messianic Jew. She taught me the name “Yeshua” for the Messiah, because that is the name she was taught in Messianic Jewish Temples; I taught others that name and it was allowed from Heaven –just as the name JESUS CHRIST was allowed— until YAHUVEH taught me the truth.
Now I know better, because YAHUVEH gave me a Holy Prophecy saying the Messianic Jews didn’t want to offend the Jews, so they use the name Yeshua instead of teaching the name YAHUSHUA (when YAHUVEH speaks to me in Holy Prophecies this is the way HE pronounces it). (Orthodox Jews think you’re taking the LORD’s name in vain if you use the name YAH). However the bible plainly says, for instance in Psalm 91, “I will set him on high because he has known My Name”. In the Bible, the name YAH was everywhere that you read the word GOD in the New Testament and YAHUVEH was everywhere you read the word LORD in the Old Testament. The King James Bible and other versions use just “LORD” or “GOD”; these are not Names, these are titles.
However, the truth is the Name of GOD, YAHUVEH, was taken out of the Bible when it should have been left in. The Orthodox Jews in error believe that the commandment “thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain” means you can’t say the Name of GOD because some Pharisee Jewish Rabbi taught them this. To further add insult to injury the Orthodox Jews and many Messianic Jewish believers in YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH spell words such as LORD as L-RD or GOD as G-D. When will they realize this even further takes away any validation of the ALMIGHTY Power in YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH’S Name?!
Most Messianic Jewish believers in YAHUSHUA are taught to spell the Name of our MESSIAH as Yeshua. The name Yeshua does not contain the name of ABBA YAHUVEH. How does the name Yeshua, glorify YAH? YAH is short for YAHUVEH (which can be spelled YAHWEH). The name YAH is in the Bible so it is backed up with the Holy Scriptures.
As I said, I also made the mistake of teaching Yeshua as the name for our MESSIAH. I learned through my mistakes, and when the HOLY SPIRIT had me buy an Aramaic Transliteration version of the Bible, I was amazed to see the name YAH SHUA in it and I instantly knew that this was correct, to spell our MESSIAH’S Name with the word YAH in it glorifying ABBA YAHUVEH and reminding us that YAH saves our souls through the Name and Blood of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. (YAHUSHUA spoke both Aramaic and Hebrew; the New Testament would have been written in those two languages). I received a mandate from Heaven to start using the true Sacred Hebrew Name. Again it can be spelled as YAHSHUA as well as YAHUSHUA. The main thing is to never to spell it as Yeshua. We are only held accountable for what we know; there was a time I didn’t know better, still my prayers were answered and I had peace in praying in the name of Yeshua. But now I know better, and you do also.
Mary was a Hebrew and she would not have given her Hebrew baby a Greek name. The King James Bible says she gave the baby the name Immanuel. Now what does Immanuel mean? It means “YAH with us”. Now here is something interesting: everytime you see the word “God” in the bible just know that the real word back in Biblical times was YAH or YAHUVEH or some spell it YAHWEH. Remember HE is GOD the HEAVENLY FATHER.
So let’s gets back to why JESUS CHRIST (the Greek name given) has no literal translation or meaning, and what the name YAHUSHUA’s literal translation from Hebrew means. The name YAHUSHUA’s literal meaning in Hebrew is “YAH SAVES”! Isn’t that awesome? How many fathers want their sons to carry their own first names? YAHUVEH did the same for HIS only begotten Son!
Now when you put the entire name together in Hebrew, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, that translates to YAHUSHUA the MESSIAH! Every time the devil hears the name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, he is reminded how he has no claim on our souls –we who accept YAHUSHUA as GOD, LORD and SAVIOUR— because of the price YAHUSHUA paid for us at Calvary, also because YAHUSHUA is YAHUVEH’S only begotten Son who is perfect in all ways, even when HE walked this earth, YAHUSHUA never sinned one time! It is awesome to think HE was in human flesh with the same temptations all around HIM, and yet HE never sinned one time, not even a sinful thought –otherwise HE could not have been the perfect sinless blood sacrifice to wash all our sins away!
Question: Can prayers and baptisms still be done in the name of JESUS CHRIST?
Yes, the name JESUS CHRIST still has forgiving, healing, delivering, resurrection power, and of course in the name of JESUS CHRIST, prayers are still answered. But why would you want to use the name of JESUS CHRIST? Once you know the true Sacred Hebrew Name of your MESSIAH, you are held accountable for what you know. Before, when you didn’t know, you had an excuse. Now you don’t have an excuse. In these end times, YAHUVEH is using this Ministry and others to teach the importance of knowing the true Hebrew name of our MESSIAH.
YAHUVEH even used a heathen actor named Mel Gibson to help us reach the world as the movie script Mel Gibson wrote used the name Yeshua. Even though Mel Gibson didn’t use the true Sacred Name of YAHSHUA or YAHUSHUA he knew enough of history and the truth not to call YAHUSHUA “JESUS”. Mel tried to make this film as authentic as possible using the true names used back then. Isn’t it sad that salvation message and the importance of leading a Holy life didn’t change the heart of Mel Gibson? We cannot even conceive of the tortures satan has waiting for him in hell because of all the souls that came to YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH –because of his movie that caused them to repent and give their souls to YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. We can only pray Mel Gibson watches his own movie and remembers the price that was paid for his sins at Calvary and turns from his wicked ways to live Holy and worship YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH instead of the Catholic Church. There is no salvation in a religion, but only with a loving, obedient relationship with YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
There are enemies of this Ministry, who dare to call themselves Christians and yet hate me and have never met me, or even spoken to me. Few have even written to me, and yet they tell slanderous lies and accuse me of having the spirit of pride. I know this is not true, and those who know me best know it is not true, for YAHUVEH has kept me humble in many different ways. One of these ways is to let others know when I have been lovingly rebuked by YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.
Here is a true story in regard to me–even after I knew the truth about the Sacred Name of our Messiah—still wanting and insisted I call HIS Name JESUS CHRIST and told HIM so.
This happened at a time when I was going through a crisis in my life, and I was crying out for answers from JESUS CHRIST. I was praying in JESUS CHRIST’s Name and asking a question for confirmation. I remember saying “I know your name is YAHSHUA but I am more comfortable calling you JESUS because that is what I was taught – and even the children’s song I sing to my children is, ‘JESUS loves me— so please will you forgive me as I just call you JESUS”?
All of a sudden it was as if I heard an audible voice –it was so loud and firmly spoken. I heard “Ok Sue”. I said “uhm…my name is not Sue”. The next thing I heard, I will never forget, “How do you like being called a name that is not your name –when you know that I know your true name, and it is not Sue? You know my true Hebrew name and yet you say you still want to call me by the name JESUS because you’re more comfortable with it –even after I led you to the truth? How do you like it?”
I repented and told YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH I was so sorry, and I finally understood that I am now held accountable for what I know; whereas before, I was under mercy for not knowing better. I now understood the importance of teaching the Hebrew Sacred Name of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH –so those who become believers in YAHUSHUA in the Great Tribulation would know the truth.
I also firmly believe the so-called Christians that continue to attack this Ministry with the written and spoken word have a form of holiness, but no life or fruit to prove it. These enemies will find out the hard way they were not found worthy to escape the Great Tribulation as well as hell. I firmly believe YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH has told me there will be many who will not be found worthy by YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, to be raptured and escape the Great Tribulation, because they have so brutally slandered and lied about this prophet and done me much harm. They try to destroy this Ministry by calling me a false prophet, slandering this Ministry by calling it a cult. All this because this Ministry refuses to compromise with sin, Holy Prophecies have been spoken forth from YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH and YAHUVEH –with mandates to honor the Sabbath Day and the Holy Days, that YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH honored and kept— and to use the Holy Sacred Hebrew Names of our MESSIAH.
I have to take comfort and know that the devil hates what this Ministry is teaching. We are reaching souls in many different nations in their own languages for YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. This is why the servants of satan are attacking me and this Ministry. Look at YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, see how he was slandered, mocked and called evil. So nothing has changed. The Holy people who live Holy unto YAHUVEH will still suffer persecution for being different than the world.
Allow me to tell you a true story about how I learned that I am now held accountable for what I now know and there is no more excuses for me praying in the name of JESUS CHRIST instead of HIS True Hebrew Name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH (also can be YAHSHUA ha MASHIACH). I usually add “ha MASHIACH” because it isn’t just HIS first name –it is also HIS main Title describing who HE is: the one and only MESSIAH. I was taught long ago by YAHUVEH and convicted when the Holy Prophecies were posted on the Internet. We capitalize Names in the English language for humans. But isn’t GOD ALMIGHTY worthy of more than that?
The HOLY SPIRIT taught me to capitalize all the letters of their Names and even if I am using the word GOD. This shows that I honor YAHUVEH, YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH, and the Precious RUACH ha KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT). And it doesn’t matter to me whether people understand that. It isn’t because I don’t ‘know any better’. It is because I do know ALMIGHTY ETERNAL ANCIENT OF DAYS, HEAVENLY CREATOR of ALL deserves this act of high respect. Do what you want but this is my conviction and I cannot write it any other way. Also you will never see me capitalize the word devil or satan for they do not deserve that respect even if it is in the beginning of a sentence!
Maybe reading this will help you to realize why you won’t have an excuse not to use our MESSIAH’s true Sacred Name either.
I spell and pronounce the name YAHUSHUA now because my husband had a dream and in that dream he was pointing to the sky and saw YAHUSHUA coming on a white horse. Niko my beloved Husband, shouted aloud waking us both up “YAHUSHUA is coming! Look up YAHUSHUA is coming!” I don’t know if the dream is posted on the website but if it isn’t we need to get it there. Niko used to say YAHSHUA up until this dream, but after the dream he spelled and pronounced the name, YAHUSHUA. I told him I learned YAHSHUA and that is the way I would continue to pronounce it. He said he felt led to use the name YAHUSHUA now.
So that is what happened and in all my writings and when I prayed or spoke the MESSIAH’S Name, I wrote and said YAHSHUA –until a new Holy Prophecy was released and the name YAHUSHUA, not YAHSHUA, came forth clearly when I spoke in Holy Tongues and it was interpreted into English. In fact, in that Holy Prophecy I was told to do what my husband did: speak and teach the name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH. Why, I don’t know because there is nothing wrong with the name YAHSHUA. Both names give Glory to YAH, yet I just strive to obey YAHUVEH in every way.
Question: When you use the Hebrew Sacred Name of YAHUSHUA, are you still praying to JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of YAHUVEH?
YES, of course! However, remember we are also warning you now to learn the true Hebrew Sacred Name of our MESSIAH because if you are here during the Great Tribulation your prayers will only be heard when you use the name YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH or YAHSHUA ha MASHIACH, because the antichrist will be claiming the name JESUS CHRIST. How many now are false christs who say their name is Jesus Christ and mock all that is holy? YAHUSHUA warned us this would happen before HE would return again. We are living in the End Times as HE prophesied. The antichrist is not going to want to use the name YAHUSHUA or YAHSHUA because satan hates the literal meaning, translation of that name!
This is how the following Scriptures should really be.
Thou shalt not take the name of YAHUVEH in vain; for YAHUVEH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain* (KJV)
The Hebrew word for vain in Ex 20:7 is shav’ –meaning empty, meaningless, nothingness, lying etc ie to empty of meaning.
How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of YAHUVEH is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he [the scribe] it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. (KJV)
The Hebrew word for vain in Jer 8:8 is sheqer – meaning lie, deception, disappointment, falsehood.
[They] think to cause my people to forget My Name […] as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal. (KJV)
*Baal means Lord and Baalim, Lords.
Hosea 2: 16-17
And it shall be at that day, saith YAHUVEH, that thou shalt call me Ishi [Husband]; and shalt call me no more Baali* [‘my Lord’]. For I will take away the names of Baalim* out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. (KJV)
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith YAHUVEH, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. (KJV)
I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My Name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, YAHUVEH is my God. (KJV)
YAHUVEH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD [YAHUVEH], and His Name one. (KJV)
Therefore my people shall know My Name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am He that doth speak: behold, it is I. (KJV)
I have manifested Thy Name unto the men which thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. (KJV)
That men may know that Thou, whose name alone is YAHUVEH, art the Most High over all the earth. (KJV)
These comments by Elisabeth added on February 21, 2003
I want to state something and make it clear. I was baptized in the name of JESUS CHRIST and cast out demons in the name of JESUS CHRIST and I and multitudes of others were healed in the name of JESUS CHRIST, souls have been saved in the name of JESUS CHRIST.
Prophetess Veronica, Brother River’s wife, also used the name JESUS CHRIST. We as the Body of Christ learned this name by the King James Bible, but if we had been studying the Hebrew Bible or the Aramaic New Testament, the name would have been YAHUSHUA or YAHSHUA.
We are only held accountable for what we know. When I learned YAHUSHUA is the Hebrew Sacred name, this is when I was held accountable to use it. My name is Elisabeth Sherrie but for many years I used my middle name Sherrie, even in the Ministry. Only the last few years did YAHUVEH give me the mandate to use my birth first name Elisabeth because the anointing would be stronger in that name if I obeyed him and no longer used the familiar name I had used for many years. This doesn’t mean I am not the same person.
YAHUSHUA and JESUS CHRIST are the same Person, the same Savior, the same GOD, the same Son of YAHUVEH. It is just that in these End Times we need more anointing Power and there is even more anointing Power in praying with His Sacred Hebrew name. I don’t know about others but I want more anointing, not less.
Some call YAHUVEH the name of JEHOVAH. When you pray, our Heavenly Father, just like our Savior, knows who you are speaking to. Please don’t misunderstand. It took me time to adjust to the name of YAHUSHUA. Also, I have been saved for 27 years and I was introduced to my Savior with His name being JESUS CHRIST. Whether you call on His name as JESUS or YAHUSHUA, the main thing is that you call upon Him as the only name that is the intercessor before our Heavenly Father, YAHUVEH.
We go from glory to Glory and revelation to revelation by the HOLY SPIRIT anointing. Some people don’t want to learn any new revelations from the HOLY SPIRIT, also called in Hebrew Ruach Ha Kodesh. They are more comfortable in drinking milk. But I am told to teach also so those that desire to eat the Meat of the Word.
I am sorry if I offended anyone. Perhaps it was very early in the wee hours of the morning and I didn’t explain it well enough, why I use the sacred name of YAHUSHUA more than the Greek name of JESUS CHRIST.
I have been given the mandate to call JESUS by his Hebrew and Aramaic name, YAHUSHUA. It is the same Son of YAHUVEH and the only name that will get you into Heaven whether you say JESUS or YAHUSHUA.
Why wouldn’t anyone want to use the Sacred Name of ‘YAHUSHUA’ instead of ‘Jesus Christ’ once they learn this truth?
Apostle Elisabeth Elijah
The Sacred Names of YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA
Note that Joshua = Yoshua or Yahushua because there is no “J” sound in Hebrew. The letter “J” is only about 500 years old and isn’t even found in the original 1611 King James version.
YAHUSHUA the Messiah is not Abba YAHUVEH. Modern day Christians believe that YAHUSHUA the Messiah pre-existed in some form or another. Some say he was Melchizedek, some say he was “the captain of the host of YAHUVEH” (Josh.5:14), some say he was the archangel Michael, others say he was the “angel of YAHUVEH”. Perhaps the most erroneous view is that YAHUSHUA was the “YAHUVEH” (LORD) of the Old Testament. This study is written in the hopes that all who read it will finally understand that YAHUVEH is the Almighty Creator of the heavens and the earth, and that YAHUSHUA the Messiah is His Son, as it is written.
Who is YAHUSHUA’s Father?
Who does scripture say is the Father? Is.63:16 says, “Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O YAHUVEH, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.” YAHUVEH is the Father. Yet, some might claim that this scripture says YAHUVEH is the Father of Israel, not of YAHUSHUA. In that case we need to note two other verses. The first is Heb.1:5; “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?” Who said these things? All would agree that YAHUSHUA’s Father said them since He is referring to YAHUSHUA as His Son. Heb.1:5 is a direct quote from Ps.2:7; “I will declare the decree: YAHUVEH hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.” The first “I” here refers to YAHUSHUA speaking through prophecy in which he declares that YAHUVEH is his Father!
We also previously saw that YAHUSHUA said, “My Father is greater than I.” In reality he was also saying, “YAHUVEH is greater than I”, thereby teaching us that he is not YAHUVEH. Anyone who believes YAHUSHUA is YAHUVEH must also believe YAHUSHUA is the Heavenly Father. That is even more absurd and more difficult to prove in the light of scripture.
The Father’s Name
In Exodus 23:13 we are commanded not to mention the names of other gods; however, because of what the modern English translators have done with our Bibles, it is the name of our God that is seldom, if ever, mentioned by the majority of our people. The King James Version of the Holy Bible renders the Third Commandment as follows:
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7) *
However, that is not how God’s Holy Spirit intended for it to be written. The inspired Third Commandment is as follows:
Thou shalt not take the name of YAHUVEH in vain; for YAHUVEH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Making Vain the Name
The English translators on their own volition replaced God’s name with something entirely different. What arrogance! What God inspired, no human translator has the right to change or remove, no matter how good the excuse sounds. King Solomon declared:
“… what is his [God’s] name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell? Every word of God is pure… Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” (Proverbs 30:4-6)
Yet that is exactly what most English translators did. They took away and added to God’s Word by replacing His personal name YAHUVEH with the capital letters LORD and GOD or with the hybrid word Jehovah.
In perverting the text, the English translators actually broke the Third Commandment since they made the name vain, that is, of none effect The word vain, as found in the Third Commandment, is translated from the Hebrew word shav (Strong’s #7723). William Gesenius defines it in part as “emptiness, nothingness, vanity … worthlessness.”(2) It is the same word used by Moses in the Ninth Commandment translated false:
Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor.
In other words, we are not to use YAHUVEH’s name falsely or bear false witness to it by replacing it with misleading titles and uninspired substitutions.
It has been declared that the Third Commandment has nothing to do with the literal name of YAHUVEH, but rather with the authority of His name. Authority is intrinsic to the Third Commandment; however, it remains impossible to exclude God’s personal name from this commandment. For example, a Roman soldier’s authority was in the name of Caesar, however, had he presented himself in the name of Nebuchadnezzar, his authority would have been nullified.
Consider the following emphasis that YAHUVEH Himself put on His name:
And YAHUVEH said more over unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the Children of Israel, YAHUVEH God of your fathers … hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. (Exodus 3:15)
Consequently, we have been charged to remember, to commemorate and to memorialize His name. Yet, most modern translators have done just the opposite and have nearly wiped YAH’s sacred name from the memory of HIS people.
After admitting that
“While it is almost if not quite certain that the Name was originally pronounced ‘YAHUVEH,'”
the translators of the Revised Standard Version provide the following excuse for the elimination of YAHUVEH’s personal name from the Scriptures:
For two reasons the [Revised Standard Version] Committee has returned to the more familiar usage [of substituting YAHUVEH with either the LORD or GOD] of the King James Version: (1) the word ‘Jehovah’ does not accurately represent any form of the name ever used in Hebrew; and (2) the use of any proper name for the one and only God … was discontinued in Judaism before the Christian era and is entirely inappropriate for the universal faith of the Christian Church. (3)
What audacity! What gives any man or any group of men the right to overrule YAHUVEH? YAHUVEH alone knows best what is and what is not appropriate for the Christian Church.
The editorial board of the New American Standard Bible made the following admission:
This name [YAHUVEH] has not been pronounced by the Jews…. Therefore, it has been consistently translated LORD. (4)
But what the Jews pronounce, or do not pronounce, has nothing to do (or should have nothing to do) with what YAHUVEH inspired in His Word.
The Smith and Goodspeed translation is probably the most frank:
In this translation we have followed the orthodox Jewish tradition and substituted “the LORD” for the name “YAHUVEH” and the phrase “the Lord GOD” for the phrase “the Lord YAHUVEH.” (5)
In light of Matthew 15:3, there is no excuse for what the English translators did:
But he [YAHUSHUA] answered and said unto them, Why do ye [Jews] also transgress the commandment of YAHUVEH by your tradition?
The Savior’s Name
Following are seven reasons for using the Hebrew name YAHUSHUA instead of the English name Jesus:
The Memorial Name
God chose YAHUVEH or its shortened form Yah to be His memorial name to all generations – Exodus 3:15. Only the name YAHUSHUA memorializes that name.
The Name Above All Names
The Son’s name is the name above all names – Ephesians 1:20-21; Philippians 2:9. But what name specifically is above all other names?
… Stand up and bless YAHUVEH your God for ever and ever: and blessed be Thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise. Thou, even thou, are YAHUVEH alone…. (Nehemiah 9:5-6)
Since the name above all names is YAHUVEH, only YAHUSHUA can be the Savior’s name.
A More Excellent Name
The Son inherited a more excellent name – Hebrews 1:4. From where did the Son inherit His name? From the Father, of course. Consequently, He could only inherit from the Father what the Father Himself possessed. Did the Father possess the name Jesus or YAH? The answer seems quite apparent especially when one keeps in mind that the Father is addressed by the abbreviated name YAH forty-nine times in the Old Testament (Psalm 68:4; etc.), which can only be found in the Hebrew name YAHUSHUA.
The Son to Come in the Name of YAHUVEH
Our Savior manifested or made known, the Father’s name while here on earth – John 17:6, 26. In only three New Testament passages do we find the Son actually introducing Himself. The first time is found in the account of the Apostle Paul’s conversion in Acts 9. The second and third times are found where Paul was recounting the same event in Acts 22 and 26. One of those accounts informs us in what language the Savior manifested His name to Paul:
… I [Paul] heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue…. And I [Paul] said, Who are thou, Lord? And He said, I am YAHUSHUA…. (Acts 26:14-15)
Had the Savior used the English name Jesus, He would not have been manifesting the Father’s name.
Since the family name YAH is found in both the Father’s and the Son’s name, YAHUSHUA could appropriately say:
“I am come in My Father’s name….” (John 5:43)
In John 12:12-13, certain Jerusalem residents proclaimed:
Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the LORD.
This is a quotation from Psalm 118:26 in which the tetragrammaton (the Hebrew letters YHWH) was substituted with the uninspired words “the LORD.” In other words, in fulfillment of this Old Testament prophecy, those Israelites were proclaiming the Messiah as having come in the name of YAHUVEH. Only in the name of YAHUSHUA could it be said that the Savior came in the name of YAHUVEH.
The Son’s Name Was To Mean “YAHUVEH Saves”
When Mary was pregnant with the Son of YAHUVEH, Joseph was told to give her offspring a name that meant:
“He [YAHUVEH] shall save his people.” (Matthew 1:21)
The English name Jesus does not fulfill that (as it has no meaning in any language, being a Greek/Latin hybrid); however, that is precisely what YAHUSHUA means. YAHUSHUA in Strong’s Concordance is #3091 which is defined as coming from #3068 – YAHUVEH, and from #3467 – yasha, which means “to save.(6) ” Together YAHUVEH and yasha, or YAHUSHUA, means YAHUVEH saves.
New Testament Baptism was to be in The Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. From the evidence provided in the book of Acts, we know that the disciples did not baptize using the formula “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19). Rather they baptized in one specific name – Acts 2:38, etc., a name that accurately represented all three. What name fulfills the conditions of the Great Commission? What choices do we have for the Father’s name? There are no Greek or English equivalents for the Father’s name, LORD and GOD are not names but are titles and Jehovah is a 16th century hybrid corruption. On the other hand, it is known that God’s personal name is YAHUVEH – shortened to YAH forty-nine times in the Old Testament.
What choices do we have for the Son’s name? Given the options of Iesous (Greek), Jesus (English) or YAHUSHUA (Hebrew), which of the three can also be used for the Father and the Holy Spirit? Only YAHUSHUA.
The Apostle Paul quoting Joel 2:32 (properly translated) declared:
…whosoever shall call upon the name of YAHUVEH shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)
How does one call upon the name of YAHUVEH? In only one place in the New Testament are we told how this is accomplished:
[Ananias speaking to Paul] And now why tarriest thou? Arise, and be baptized and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. (Acts 22:16)
Just three days prior, the Savior had manifested His name to the Apostle Paul in Hebrew as YAHUSHUA. So what name do you suppose Paul was immersed in or that he called upon in fulfillment of Joel 2:32 and Romans 10:13? The name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! The name YAHUSHUA!
The Deity of YAHUSHUA
Lastly, and most importantly, the Hebrew pronunciation of our Savior’s name should be used since the deity of YAHUSHUA is proven therein. If the Hebrew names had been left intact in the Scriptures, it would be much more difficult, if not impossible, for a person to be persuaded against the deity of YAHUSHUA the MESSIAH.
Consider the Old Testament prophecies regarding YAHUVEH that were attributed to YAHUSHUA. For example, whose way was John the Baptist to prepare? Who was to be betrayed for thirty pieces of silver? Whose side was to be pierced? Who was the stone that the builders rejected, and who was to become the chief corner stone? If your answer to these questions is Jesus, you had better look at those prophecies again! In those passages **, YAHUVEH was removed and replaced with the words “the LORD.” Restore God’s personal name YAHUVEH and it becomes immediately apparent that those prophecies were about YAHUVEH fulfilled in YAHUSHUA.
Not only that, but when we use the Hebrew name of our Savior, it clearly describes not simply what some man is doing or what some prophet is doing or even what another god is doing. It describes what the GOD of gods, the great “I AM”, what YAHUVEH is doing! Our Savior was named in Hebrew YAHUSHUA because it means YAHUVEH saves. Additionally, our Savior was named in Hebrew Immanuel, meaning YAH with us, which testifies to the same.
THESE SEVEN REASONS (AND MORE ***) REVEAL THAT THE HEBREW NAMES YAHUVEH AND YAHUSHUA SHOULD BE OUR PREFERRED CHOICE.
