Someone on www.ecclessia.org said this in a post:
…so willing to trust in themselves but not HaShem?
…the fiat banking system of today for provision instead of Hashem.
I posted this in response:
In John 17:6 Jahshuwah says,
“I have manifested Your Name [I have revealed Your very Self, Your real Self] to the people…”
In John 17:26 Jahshuwah again says,
“I have made Your Name known to them…”
In John 12:26 Jahshuwah says,
“If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me [Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.] to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying] and wherever I am, there will My servant be also.”
I have a friend that says that calling Jahuwah “Hashem” is the same as calling Him “what’s his name.”
Based upon the above scriptures I was recently given the following revelation:
Jahshuwah made the Father’s name known;
We are to follow His example.
Which gives rise to the question, are you a name concealer, or a name revealer? If you are a name concealer, why aren’t you following Jahshuwah’s example? I am also of the opinion that people that use G-o-d as the Father’s name are name concealers.
In response this was posted by a member of the www.ecclessia.org forum:
The tetra grammaton is four letters. The true pronunciation is unknown.
One thing is known he wants love to prevail!
Will any look before they continue to digress from the Love???
To which I responded:
Firstly, we know from Hebrews 13:8,
“Jahshuwah the Anointed One the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”
Secondly, we know from Hebrews 2:12 that,
“…[He] will declare [the Father’s] name unto [His] brethren…”
Since Jahshuwah is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, that would mean that He is still declaring the Father’s name unto His brethren today. If Jahshuwah is not declaring His Name to you I would have to ask, who are you? Are you one of the brothers? When you say, “The true pronunciation is unknown…” you make it sound like the Set Apart Spirit is not teaching you how to pronounce His Name. You make it sound like you are not hearing from the Father; like you’ve been cut off? Is it your position that the Set Apart Spirit does not know how to pronounce the Father’s Name?
Thirdly, we know about the great commandments to love from Matthew 22; in particular this commandment:
37And He replied to him, You shall love the Jahuwah your Mighty Creator with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). 38This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment.
Fourthly, from 1 John we know the following things about love:
1 John 2:5 But he who keeps and treasures His Word; who bears in mind His precepts, who observes His message in its entirety, truly in him has the love of and for Jahuwah been perfected; completed, reached maturity. By this we may perceive, know, recognize, and be sure that we are in Him:
1 John 3:10 By this it is made clear who take their nature from Jahuwah and are His children and who take their nature from the devil and are his children: no one who does not practice righteousness; who does not conform to Jahuwah’s will in purpose, thought, and action is of Jahuwah; neither is anyone who does not love his fellow believer in The Anointed One.
So, conforming to Jahuwah’s will in purpose, thought, and action is very important. Part of conforming to His Will is to reveal His name among the brothers and sisters. What is unloving about anything Jahuwah or Jahshuwah ever did?
1 John 3:23 And this is His order, His command, His injunction: that we should believe in; put our faith and trust in; and adhere to and rely on the name of His Son Jahshuwah the Messiah, and that we should love one another, just as He has commanded us.
So, believing on this name that you say cannot be pronounced is put ahead of, and made more important than, loving one another. Sometimes people tell me that they have a friend, but, they can’t remember that friend’s name. When that happens, I wonder to myself, they must not be much of a friend. How are you going to be the Father’s friend, like Abraham was, if you can’t even pronounce His name?
1 John 5:2 By this we come to know, recognize, and understand that we love the children of Jahuwah: when we love Jahuwah and obey His commands, orders, charges–when we keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and His teaching.
As I have said already, with citation, is that obeying His command, order and charge is that we follow His example and reveal His Name among the brothers and sisters. We do this when we love Him!
1 John 5:3 We show that we love Jahuwah when we obey his laws.
Look what Malachi chapter 3 has to say in support of this:
16 Then those who feared Jahuwah talked often one to another; and Jahuwah listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared Jahuwah and who thought on His name.
17 And they shall be Mine, says Jahuwah the Mighty Ruler, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.
18Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves the Mighty Creator and him who does not serve Him.
So, if you want to “love” the Father and be one of His, you better start thinking “on His Name” and revealing it among the brothers and sisters.
