“Blessed are you יְהֹוָה, King of the Universe, for by your Ruach you have given us your Torah of Truth that is the beauty of Messiah Yahusha for He reveals you. Blessed are you opener of eyes and ears and hearts and especially mine. Ameyn.”
Primacy is given to the revealed covenant Name of יְהֹוָה and Word hence יְהֹוָה and all Scripture references are highlighted in bold font.
יְהֹוָה is used in the notes as the name of the Deity as it was revealed to Moshe (Moses). There are many so called ‘gods’ but only one יְהֹוָה (pronounced Ya-hoo-ah) (plus.google.com) This is the only name used in the Bible by which the Eternal Self-existing One has commanded us to call Him. However, there are various pronunciations but no clear definitive conclusion. Therefore יְהֹוָה is used throughout. All other references (El, `Elohiym, El Shaddai, LORD etc.) are all titles and refer to what יְהֹוָה is capable of doing or of His character. However, these are not set apart on to Him alone but can be used of people and false deities. Therefore, I believe that it is of vital importance to proclaim His Name as He commands (Deut. 28:58-62). The references to ‘Jesus, Christ, God, Lord, LORD or Yeshua’ in the quoted Bible verses have been retained but readers must be aware that these are words derived from tradition and not Scripture and only used due to copyright. Yahusha (Yah-oo-sha) is the correct name of the Son/Messiah/Master (plus.google.com). All proper names have been amended to their original (non-anglicized) names. This includes Yahusha HaMashiach or Messiah Yahusha (Jesus Christ). It is belief that the true Name of the Almighty, יְהֹוָה and of His Son Yahshua will be returned to their rightful glory (Psa. 22:22; Prov. 30:4; Heb. 2:12).
The word god is used to denote all the false deities. The use of names and titles of false deities, demons, powers, principalities and angels are not used in any way or form to praise or exalt them. All created beings should be referred to by impersonal pronouns (it, them). Only יְהֹוָה `Elohiym (Father, Son and Spirit) and Man (formed) are not created and should be referred to as He, he, she etc.
All Scripture verses are full or paraphrased (usually from the Hebrew Names Version). # refers to the Strong’s Number G(reek) or H(ebrew) and * to TWOT. For example Righteousness’#H6663 צָדַק tsadaq *1879 sadeq where the word tsadaq/sadeq is the transliteration or English approximation to the sounding of the Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek word.
All Scripture references have been kept to the anglicized for simplicity or where they have been taken from a direct quote.
However, I must stress that:
the pronunciation of יְהֹוָה is a blessings and curses issue and not one of salvation.
All statements are my own beliefs arrived at by 25 years of studying the Word of יְהֹוָה and commentaries of both the Bible and social conditions before and after the Master’s time on this earth, observations and the leading of the Set Apart Spirit. The leading of the Spirit is infallible; my following is not. In all things, I give over to the leading of the Set Apart Spirit, our only perfect Teacher, and ask that you do not take anything I write (nor that of any man) without weighing carefully and with prayer against your own reading of the Word of יְהֹוָה and leading of His Spirit. These beliefs are opinions and are meant to assist and not to command; they are not to act as doctrine.
It is intended that this study to be read alongside a Bible. In my opinion, there is no ‘best’ translation but this study utilises a literal translation version (Hebrew Names Version). Please note that there may be some slight differences in the verse notation due to the differing translations. All the Bible quotations are from www.blueletterbible.org unless otherwise stated. I recommend that no Bible verse to be taken in isolation but that in looking up the verses quoted below, its context is examined.
Book, internet and copyright references are to be found at the end of the final section.
