Yehowshaphat, (Jehoshaphat); Yehowah Judges, a Closer Look at our Creators name.

Yehowshaphat Hebrew
Yehowshaphat (Jehoshaphat) written in Hebrew

One of the names in the Bible that not many dispute or argue about is the name Yehowshaphat. Written in English it is incorrectly translated as Jehoshaphat, but just remember that the J is a English alteration of the Hebrew letter Y and that they drop the W because they claim the W is pronounced as a V (which is false) but in these instances they simply drop the letter W claiming it is silent.

The name Yehowshaphat means Yehowah-Shaphat, or Yehowah-Judges. Here we can see clearly that combining the Creator’s name with a word we use Yehow at the start and add the second word which in this case is Shaphat. In Greek it is written as ιωσαφατ, the first two letters Iota and Omega represent and is pronounced like Yeh-ōw, then we have the rest of the letters Sigma, Alpha, Phi, Alpha, and Tau representing the rest of the name s(h)-a-ph-a-t.

So as we see the first part of our Creators name Yeh-ow is transliterated as ιω, so to complete the name Yeh-ow-ah, we would have to add an Alpha, α for the ah sound. So in Greek the Creator’s name could be written as ιωα, Iota for Yeh, Omega for ōw, and Alpha for ah. So in conclusion, there is a way to write Yehowah in Greek. But we know that the Greeks took out his great name and replaced it with Kurios.

If we look at the name Yehowshuwa, the true name of the Messiah, and of the Leader who led after Moses and who brought the Hebrews to the promised land, we see that the Greek text deliberately incorrectly transliterated the name as ιησουν, written in English letters as Iesoun pronounced as yeh-ay-soon. As you can see, it is not a correct transliteration of Yehowshuwa. If we take the same approach in Greek as in the name Yehowshaphat,  and other names that start with Yehow , the Greek transliteration of the name Yeh-ow-s-(h)uw-a would be ιωσυα. Iota, omega, sigma, upsilon, and alpha. Another telling sign that the Greeks incorrectly transliterated Yehowshuwa is that in the Old Testament of the King James bible we see that this name is translated to Jehoshua or Joshua the shortened form, but when we get to the New Testament it is incorrectly translated as Jesus.

Here is an example of the Greek lettering system, so you can see clearly yourself how to spell or transliterate names. One can see there has been a deliberate change of the true names that are most important to everyone. I have also added the Hebrew lettering system.

Getting back to the name Yehowshaphat, we see in the bible that there was a king who ruled Yehowdeh (erroneously  rendered as Judah in most bibles) for 25 years. It was one of the most prosperous times for the people of  Yehowdeh (Judah). Yehowshaphat cleansed the land of it false idols and icons, he also sent out Levites and  Priests to teach the law of YEHOWAH throughout the land of Yehowdeh (Judah).

2 Chronicles 17:3 And YEHOWAH (the LORD) was with Yehowshaphat (Jehoshaphat), because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim.

In the above statement we have an interesting word. The word or name Baalim, if we look in Strong’s concordance we see that they claim Baal = Lord.

Word: בעל
Pronounc: bah’-al
Strong: #H1168
Orig: the same as 1167; Baal, a Phoenician deity:–Baal, (plural) Baalim. #H1167
Use: TWOT-262a
GR Strong: #G896

Baal = “lord”

n pr m
1) supreme male divinity of the Phoenicians or Canaanites
2) a Reubenite
3) the son of Jehiel and grandfather of Saul

n pr loc
4) a town of Simeon, probably identical to Baalath-beer.

Here we get the example that Lord can actually mean Baal. So another way of reading that, is that  Yehowshaphat walked with YEHOWAH and not “the LORD”. It is the scribes that have changed the name of Yehowah and replaced it with the word LORD which can literally mean Baal. So here we have a clear statement that we are not to seek Baal which can and is translated at times as Lord.

This may sound a bit harsh but those who say they are following the Lord are they really worshiping the true Creator? It states that Yehowshaphat kept the commandments of Yehowah.

2 Chronicles 17:4 But sought to the God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.

The commandments of Yehowah are the ten commandments, it is stated that the ten commandments was originally written with the finger of Yehowah in stone tablets. Many people would like to tell you that the commandments are done away with and that Jesus (a false Greek name) fulfilled the law, which in their minds means that they no longer have to keep them as long as they believe in Jesus ( a false Greek name).

But if we read what the Messiah, whose name is Yehowshuwa truly said, he said that not one jot or tittle shall pass from the law.

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Many will argue that to keep the law one must also then get circumcised, do sacrifices, etc. But that is just an excuse, because it is only the Ten Commandments that was written by the finger of Yehowah and that it would stand to reason that these commandments are what all people should keep. So it states that not one of the smallest letters, which in this case is the Hebrew letter Yowd, and not one of the smallest points will be changed.

This means that we are to worship Yehowah with all our heart, mind and soul. Many people who call themselves Christian, worship Jesus Christ as their God, they are worshipping a false Greek God. The worship of this false Greek God was enforced by Constantine the Great, re-enforced by the Catholic Church, and then all Christian Churches that have come after (out of) her.

Christians and all others have been lied to. The scribes and pharisees have preached and taught that one has to worship Jesus Christ as their new God. The preachers are preaching a lie. They have twisted the scriptures to suit their agenda and have everyone worshipping a false God whom they call Jesus Christ. The Yehowdeh (Jews) also have taken out the Creators name and substituted Adonay as his name.

22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD Yehowah; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went . 23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD Yehowah, saith the Lord GOD Yehowah, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. 25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean :

In the above verse it claims that Yehowah will sanctify his great name that was profaned among the heathen. Where will he do this? In the valley of Yehowshaphat.

Joel (Yehowel) 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Yehowshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Joel 3:12 (Yehowel) Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Yehowshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.


Judaism: Are the Jews Really Called by his Name?

Yehowdeh, the true name of the ‘Jews’

In my last two articles I discussed that the name Yehowah is the true name of our creator and that his son’s name is Yehowshuwa. And that how the translators have changed or replaced the true names with false ones. This first started when the Tanakh (Old Testament) was translated from Hebrew into Greek. They have altered other names also, the one I would like to discuss today is the true Hebrew name of a Jew. It is said that the Jews get their name from the name Judah.  Claiming that the Hebrew name is Yehuwdah or Yehudi. In Greek it is written as ιουδα Iouda, then to English as Judah. We get this name mentioned in Genesis 29 when Leah said she will praise Yehowah.

Genesis 29:35 And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise YEHOWAH: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.

3034  ’ō-w-ḏeh אוֺדֶה will I praise.

There is a problem with this name Judah, because the word ‘praise’ is not #3034  Yadah like Strong’s concordance may suggest, if you look at the Hebrew text like the BHS the Hebrew word for praise is ‘owdeh. So the name to praise Yehowah would be Yehowdeh? That would be more accurate than Yehuwdah. From where do we get a long U sound in there instead of a long O sound. It states clearly that Leah named her son to praise (‘owdeh) Yehowah. If you search the Hebrew bible you will find the word Yehowdeh used once in Nehemiah both in the BHS and in the Leningrad Codex. Stong’s concordance directs you to the word Yadah, but once again that is not what is said in the Hebrew scriptures.

Nehemiah 11:17  And Mattaniah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer.

יְהוֺדֶה  yə·hō·w·ḏeh — 1 Occurrence in Nehemiah 11:17 translated as thanksgiving but would more appropriately be translated as praising Yehowah in prayer.

So the true word for praising and thanking Yehowah would be Yehowdeh. So Leah would of named her son Yehowdeh. So how and why the change? Some may say that Yehuwdah is not much different than Yehowdeh, but when they get into translating Yehuwdah, it becomes Judah and eventually as Jew . Totally different than Yehowdeh. When a person says the name Jew or Judah, they are not praising Yehowah, but if they say Yehowdeh, then they are thanking and praising Yehowah.

This has been another deliberate alteration of the bible, what is disturbing is that not many people know or want to know. All the people who say they study the bible, like bible scholars, what exactly are they studying? There is not much clear information on this.  As for the ‘Jewish’ people who call themselves Yehudi would it not be better to be called Yehowdeh. Then all those who say the word Yehowdeh would be praising Yehowah.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray , and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

So what do you think? Is it important to you? If the ‘Yehowdeh’ (Jew) are not allowed to say the name of  Yehowah, would they be allowed to say Yehowdeh. Now this brings me to the religion of Judaism. If the word Judah is incorrect, then the religion of Judaism is based on a false name. One of the tenets in Judaism is that they don’t say the name of Yehowah (YHWH), they substitute his name with the word Adonay or HaShem.  And that there was an actual ban on saying his name. The Torah does not forbid the use of his name, we are to praise his name. It is in the Talmudic teachings that puts a ban on his name.

Jeremiah 23:27
Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

Malachi 1:6
A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith YEHOWAH of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

We can see that there has been an attempt to erase, eliminate or change the true name of our Creator and other names that have the Creator’s name in it, but if one searches diligently one can find the truth, but how many people are truly seeking the truth. There is not many. It’s a shame because the people are being persuaded  into believing a lie. There are many conflicting articles out there, all to confuse the ordinary person trying to seek the truth. There are many organizations out there dedicated to spread and push all these lies, like false names and false doctrines. It is up to you to seek the truth on your own.

Zechariah 13:9
And 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 my people: and they shall say, YEHOWAH my God.

Joel 2:32
And everyone who calls on the name of  YEHOWAH will be saved

Acts 2:21
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord  YEHOWAH shall be saved. (Peter quoting Joel of the old testament which has the name Yehowah written in it but replaced with the word LORD in most bibles.)

As we see in the above verses it is very important to know the true name of the Almighty because all that call upon his name will be saved. It is as simple as that. This is what the Messiah Yehowshuwa came to tell us.   … I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it  (John 17:26)

The Truth About Christianity, a Worldwide Counterfeit Religion.

yehowshuwa in hebrew-001
Yehowshuwa written in Hebrew.

In my last article I discussed that the true name of God is Yehowah and mentioned that the true name of the messiah is Yehowshuwa. Yet most Christian Churches will stick to the false name Jesus and the false title Christ. If we look in Strong’s Concordance we see that Jesus (#G2424) is the English translation of the Greek Iesous which is an incorrect translation of the original Hebrew name Yehowshuwa, יְהוֹשׁוּע The Following comes from Davar, most online Concordances have been slightly altered, see the picture below from an actual Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance which has the vowels points included. (Hebrew is read from right to left)

Strong: #G2424
Word: Ιησους
Pronounc: ee-ay-sooce’
Orig: of Hebrew origin #H3091; Jesus (i.e. Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites:–Jesus. #H03091

Strong: #H3091
Word: יהושוע
Pronounc: yeh-ho-shoo’-ah
Orig:  or Yhowshua ; from 3068 and 3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader:–Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua.

A picture from Strong’s Concordance Hebrew #3091 Yehowshuwa.

So here we clearly see that the true Hebrew name of the Messiah is Yehowshuwa, which means Yehowah’s shuwa. Although they say that it means ‘Yehowah saved.’ using Hebrew #3467 -Yasha, the actual word is Shuwa # H7769 A halloo which means a loud cry. From #7768 a loud cry to freedom. So Yehowshuwa means Yehowah’s loud cry to freedom.

Word: שוע
Pronounc: shoo’-ah
Strong: #H7769
Orig: from 7768; a halloo:–cry, riches. #H7768
Use: TWOT-2348a Noun Masculine

Word: שוע
Pronounc: shaw-vah’
Strong: #H7768

Orig: a primitive root; properly, to be free; but used only causatively and reflexively, to halloo (for help, i.e. freedom from some trouble):–cry (aloud, out), shout.

So you see the name Jesus is not the correct name of the Messiah. The true Hebrew name is Yehowshuwa. Yet most of the Christian churches along with their pastors and preachers will push the false name Jesus. How can that be? I know that a lot of Protestants have a concordance themselves, have they not also noticed this? And what about all the Pastors and Preachers, do they not also know this? Once we know the truth, do we ignore it and continue with incorrect name Jesus? How many people have been baptized in the name of Jesus?

Now let us look at the other half of his name, his title Christ.

John 1:41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, (being interpreted, the Christ).
John 4:25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, (which is called Christ): when he is come, he will tell us all things.

As we read in the above two quotes they were awaiting and expecting the Messias Greek number #G3323, a Greek translation of the Hebrew word Mashiyach. And both times we have the interpreters saying it means Christ. And throughout the rest of the New Testament it is falsely written as Christ.

Greek Strong: #G3323
Word: Μεσσιας
Pronounc: mes-see’-as
Orig: of Hebrew origin #H4899; the Messias (i.e. Mashiach), or Christ:–Messias. #H04899
Use: TDNT-9:493, 1322 Noun Masculine
HE Strong:
Messias = “anointed”
1) the Greek form of Messiah
2) a name of Christ

Hebrew Strong: #H4899
Word: משיח
Pronounc: maw-shee’-akh
Orig: from 4886; anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); specifically, the Messiah:–anointed, Messiah. #H4886
Use: TWOT-1255c Noun Masculine
GR Strong: #G3323
1) anointed, anointed one
1a) of the Messiah, Messianic prince
1b) of the king of Israel

So we see that the word Messias is the Greek translation of the Hebrew word Mashiyach. The title Christ is not correct that is another Greek alteration, claiming that Christ means the same thing, but we see the true Greek word is Messias. They replaced the title of Mashiyach, Messias, Messiah, with the Greek work Christos, Christ. So the true name Yehowshuwa the Messiah, or Yehowshuwa haMashiyach  has been changed to Jesus Christ. Is this not deception?

I have written this article to point out that we have been lied to. This information is out there but we have to seek and search for the truth ourselves, and we have to love  the truth enough so as to not be deceived by all the false teachers. Christians get their name from the Pagan Greek Gnostics, an esoteric teaching. They call their initiates, that become illuminated, the Christified ones, before that in Egypt they were called the Osirified ones. So all churches that call themselves Christian are not teaching the truth as to what is written in the bible. In order to become a member of any Christian Church you have to get baptized in the false name of Jesus Christ. And many denominations have the false doctrine of the Trinity, which is not in the bible. The bible tells us specifically that Yehowah is one.

 Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: YEHOWAH our God is one YEHOWAH:  And thou shalt love YEHOWAH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Mark 12:29 And Yehowshuwa answered him, The first of all the commandments , Hear, O Israel; YEHOWAH our God is one YEHOWAH:  And thou shalt love YEHOWAH thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Here we have Yehowshuwa quoting the old testament, telling us that we are to love his Father Yehowah with all our heart, mind and soul. This is the greatest commandment. Most Christian churches will try to convince you that Jesus Christ is actually God. Not only is Jesus Christ a false name but to claim that he is God is deceitful and a lie. This is a worldwide deception pushed by Satan the Devil. And all those teachers who push this lie, are they not working for Satan? Every time a pastor or preacher baptizes someone in the name of Jesus Christ are they not working for Satan? They of all people should know that Jesus is a false name, are they not false prophets? Are they not workers if iniquity?

Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

What is the True Name of God? Yehowah is the Answer.

Yehowah written in Hebrew

There are a lot of confusing websites out there claiming that there is no way of knowing the true name of our Creator. Saying that it was lost or that we shouldn’t be saying it. But when one reads the bible, it states that we were given the name and that it stands for all generations. Exodus 3:15

 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, YEHOWAH God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations

Most bibles have taken the liberty of replacing his true name with the word LORD and have made an emphasis that his name may be I AM. But it clearly states that YEHOWAH is his name forever and for all generations.

If we look in Strong’s Concordance for the word LORD it has a number #3068

Word: יהוה
Pronounc: yeh-ho-vaw’
Strong:  #H3068
Transliter: Yhovah
 from 1961; (the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish  national name of God:–Jehovah, the Lord. Compare 3050, 3069.   #H1961  #H3050  #H3069
Here we have the name written has Yehovah, and as Jehovah, but we know that God’s name has the Hebrew letters of YHWH, It has a ‘W’ not a ‘V’, the V crept in through the German language, which the Modern Hebrew teachers now teaches, but this is new it has always been pronounced as a ‘W’. As for the ‘J’ this too is a modern addition, there were no ‘J’s’ until the the 1500’s, introduced to us again by the German’s as a new letter adopted from the letter i. This is how deception slowly creeps in. Also I would like to point out that there was a ban on the use of the name of Yehowah through the Talmudic teachings.
Now there are scholars who would like us to believe that Yahweh is the name of the Hebrew God. There is no basis for this name except that they say it was a name used by the Samaritans. The name they claim is Iabe, or iabe, stating that the B is pronouced as a V hence the pronunciation as Yahveh, but spelled as Yahweh. Now when the Messiah was talking to the Samaritan woman in John 4:21. He states clearly that the Samaritans do not know what they worship, so once again here we have more deception being put out to the masses all to push away the people from learning the true name.
Woman, believe me, the hour cometh * , when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship : for salvation is of the Jews.  But the hour cometh , and now is , when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
The Jesuits were the first to push this false name, they even added this name to their songs etc. But now the Pope has put a stop to it, now that it is well known and used by a lot of people.
And there are those who say his name is Yah claiming it is a poetic or contracted form of YHWH. This is very unlikely seeing it is the name of the Egyptian Moon God. The Hebrews were commanded not to use the names of false gods they learned from Egypt.  Joshua 24:14
Now therefore fear YEHOWAH, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye YEHOWAH

British Museum
Bronze statue of Iah, Yah Egyptian Moon God in the British Museum

Now this brings me to the Sacred Name Movement, there a number of different groups who claim that they have the true name of God. But if you look at every one of them we can see a problem. They are not giving you the true names, they give you everything but the truth. There are the Yahweh-Yashua, Yahweh-Yahushua, Yahuwah-Yahushua, and the Yahweh-Yeshua groups. They are bombarding the Internet with all these alternate false names, to the point that the average person gets confused. This is all to lead people astray. Joel 2:32 states that all those who call upon the name of  Yehowah will be saved. It is Satan the Devil that has taught us all these different names and doctrines. If one seeks hard enough they will find the truth.

Yehowah is not the only name that they tampered with, they also changed the true name of the Messiah, who came in his Father’s name. His true name is Yehowshuwa, which means Yehowah’s loud call to freedom. He is Yehowah’s shuwa, he is calling all those who love the Father.
