His Name
JESUS is not His Name
The Name Jesus is a Modern Invention
YaHshua or Jesus or Yeshua, which?

By your servant, Dan L Baxley

May 2000 -- Updated: May, 2020 **

From the very beginning I want to make it clear that the name JESUS has only been around for the past 400 years -- that is a FACT.  The name JESUS is not an equivalent for our Savior's Birth Name -- that too is a Fact.  The name JESUS, pronounced Geezus, by most and Hezeus by others, is not and never has been the English equivalent of the Greek -- the so-called, Inspired Greek.  Even if we accept that the Greek is the inspired, Holy Spirit, language, the name, JESUS, is not that.  Still, scholars from every side and in every school of theology and from every pulpit preachers and street corner cryier will tell you the JESUS is the English for the Inspired Greek -- that is a deception, a lie.  Keep reading and you will see why this is true, aside from the false name JESUS not even coming close to being a transliteration of our Savior's Birth Name, YaHshua.  The Old English transliteration, from the Old Testament is Joshua -- neither of these Names, the Hebrew/Jewish, or the Old English attempt, are anywhere near the false name that nearly everyone has accepted.  Just a simple question, before we continue -- Why change His Name from YaHshua, or Joshua, both available yesterday and today?  Why, why replace with a completely different name, a name that sounds nothing like the Name as presented and found in the Old Testament for thousands of years, a name known then and now?   Go to this link, to see what some scholars in the word and some professing prophet says -- Response to that very question -- from the Christian elite

Important?  Does it really matter?  He knows that is in our Hearts, right?

It is very important, as you will see and not on something from the past but for the future as well.  Notice, the Beast is going to Blaspheme His Holy Name -- if names do not really matter, as some teach, and it is all about the heart, then why this prophetic statement?

(Rev 13:6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His Name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

Reading that verse seems to suggest that His Name does matter.  A future, Earthly power, is going to blaspheme a certain Name, the name of our Creator, our God.  Which Name would that be?  If we can see how the Name of our Savior has been changed, literally replaced, maybe, that could rank as a blaspheme of His Holy Name? Replacing the One Name by which we must all be saved -- Acts 4:12.  But then, still, I have heard and seen people slap their hand over their heart and say, "None of that matters, it is only what is in your Heart that matters."

As the ultimate answer ends up being, after no other adequate answer can be provided for why His Birth Name was replaced, goes something like this -- it is what is in your heart that counts, or He knows your heart, followed by a hand or fist slap over the chest to emphasis sincerity.  Well, there is a problem with that, a real problem.

(Psa 44:20-21)  If we had forgotten the Name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, (21) would not God have discovered it, since He knows the secrets of the heart?
(Ecc 9:3)  This is the evil in everything that happens under the sun: The same destiny overtakes all. The hearts of men, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterward they join the dead.
(Jer 17:9)  The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
(Jer 23:26)  How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?

(Mat 15:18-19) (YaHshua said), But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.' (19)  For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

There are many verse in Scripture that illuminates the Heart, not just as evil, but as caring and loving, too.  This should be the warning for us, that we are not deceived by our own heart or wishes or denials, because, our own heart is capable of being evil.  Yes, He knows the heart of all men.  And when He sent His Son, it was not to cover up the evil heart of man, it was to save it, and not by the hearing only, but by our confessing as well -- so, if you put your trust in what is in your heart, fine, but what about your confession?  Ponder what the Apostle Paul was saying to the Romans, consider the following --

(Rom 10:9-11)  That if you confess with your mouth, "YaHshua is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.  As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame."

Who is it, then, that you confess?  If it is by heart only, then how can you confess what is in your heart?  It is important.  He does know the heart and hearts of all men, that they can be and are mostly wicked in nature -- as the verses above expose this to be true.  And, from the heart comes the most vile things going out through the mouth, but from this very same mouth and heart can also come the Truth and the Confession about who the Son of the Living God is and to whom you put your trust -- who, then, do you confess?

The name JESUS, is pronounced GEEZUS, in the English languages, while in Spanish and some Latin languages it is pronounced as HeyZeus.  I Rome Italy, it is pronounced, in English, Yeshua, sometimes, Yahshua and in Latin, or the Italian as, Isis, or Isus.  Crazy, right?  Now you know where I am coming from and where this article is headed. How important is this?  Pretty important, something that we should all get right.  It should not be something tossed around as if, any name will do, it won't.  This is something that the Apostle Peter thought was very important as well, something he declared in one of his first teachings --

(Act 4:11-12)  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

When Peter spoke those words the bogus name JESUS, did not exist.  The name Peter spoke to those Jews was a name the all recognized.  The only issue with His Birth Name YaHshua, at that time was claiming what that Name said, as more than just a nice name to name a child.  Every time our Savior, YaHshua did something miraculous or quoted Scripture and applied it to Himself, the religious leaders of the day blew their lids -- not for a correct quote but for the fact these quotes and actions described in the Torah when spoke and applied by a name with THAT NAME, why, it just drove them crazy, because the meaning of THAT NAME had a profound meaning -- YaH's Savior, that is what saying the Name YaHshua means, and the Pharisees and the Scribes and the Lawyers all went ballistic.  First they tried to figure out what He was saying, and even asked Him if He was THE prophet, same question they asked John the Baptist, but John denied he was anything other than a voice crying in the wilderness -- John 1:20-23 -- that flew right over the scholars of that day, heads.  They asked YaHshua, and finally when He neither denied nor claimed the wondered and watched, but finally the time came when what He was doing and what He was saying fit His Name and He did not deny that, and that is when they began to plot His death. John 10:24-25,  Luke 22:67

When the Apostles were proclaiming the Gospel message it was in a Name that was given to our Savior at birth, by an Angel from God the Father.  According to Peter, it is a Name that is found among men, a name used by men, a name in existence at the time He was Named,and that Name is found in the Old Covenant Torah and Writings, while the false name used to replace His Holy Name does not.  He was Named by His Heavenly Father, a Name the Father in Heaven gave to Gabriel, and Arch Angel of the highest order, to tell to Mary and Joseph to Name Him, and they did, and that name was NOT Jesus.

(Luke 1:26)  And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

(Luke 1:30-31)  And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for you have found favour with God.  And, behold, you shall conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call His Name YaHshua.  (YaHshua is the corrected Name for the Old English, Joshua -- the name Jesus is a new invention from the 15th century -- then name Joshua dates back to before Moses)

You will notice that the Angel, Gabriel, did not ask Mary what she would like to name this child she would be having.  Gabriel told her what His Name would be.  

(Luke 2:21)  And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, His Name was called YaHshua, which was so Named of the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

The Name Jesus never existed during the time the Angel Gabriel gave them the name to name Him, but the name YaHshua did exist.  So, how did this false name get into the New Covenant?  Now that is the question, isn't it?

YaHshua not Jesus, and Not The Zeus
The Name YaHshua was given to Mary and Joseph to name Him -- Luke 1:30-31 -- Most Christian Bibles have remove His Birth Name, the actual Name delivered to Mary by the Angel Gabriel, with the false name, Jesus -- by restoring His given Birth Name, you can and will see the evil that has been done to the written word.  YaHshua is the English Transliteration (not translation) for His Hebrew/Jewish name -- the "translation" would be, YaH's Savior, or YaH' Salvation, and notice, that even in the translation, His Name is retained, even as in the transliteration, so in the translation, this is something that you cannot do with the false name Jesus.  The Name remains in translation and transliteration.  This, too,  is the same Name found in the Old Testament as JOSHUA, the Old English transliteration of His Name.  The name JESUS is none of these, it is a completely different name, a replacement.  The false name, Jesus, is not an "equivalent", either, it is a "replacement".  However many times you will hear that this false name is the Greek Equivalent, and that simply is not true -- the bogus name, Jesus, is not Greek.  It is closer to Latin, than Greek, being passed down from the Roman Chruch, first as Iesvs, and pronounced very different from how the English pronounce the Jesus name.  Let's take a look at what an "equivalent" is --

[Equivalent, by definition:  1. Being essentially equal to something.]

Certainly, this is what they, the various sources, are trying to tell you -- the name Jesus is equal to ... but how can it be?  Some will try to tell you that it is, but as you can see, it is not -- don't let the blind or the deceivers lead you around in their darkness.  The fake name, JESUS, did not exist when He was named, and this name is not pronounced the same, not even close to the much older name, YaHshua, the Name He was Named at Birth -- to repeat -- A Name He was Name by His Heavenly Father -- A Name, a name Mary and Joseph were told to name Him.  Nothing is equivalent here, nothing.  And do not get tied up in knots with the spelling, as some do, because the spelling out in letters is merely to help you pronounce His Name, to say His Name, each in His own language or dialect, however the letters need to be put together to accomplish the SAME sound.  So, when I say, YaHshua, you, in your own language can repeat that same vocalization, so we are repeating the same sound, saying the same Name.  The visual Characters, when spelt out, is only to aid in our repeating, or saying His Name.  In fact, the spelling, YaHWeH and YaHshua are English for that sound, that phonetic value of a Hebrew Name -- written in Hebrew very few English speaking people would recognize it, so, it must be transliterated into English letters in order for an English speaking person to repeat this Hebrew Name, simple as that.  So, why argue over how it appears on paper?  Usually the arguments are over vowels, and vowel have nothing to do with His Name in it pure form, and in it pure form it is repeatable, try it -- YaH is YH, YaHWeH is YHWH and YaHshua is YH shua.  See?

This article is going to prove just that, that the false name JESUS (IESUS -- Latin original, IESVS) is a lie and a deception -- "... They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie...' (2Th 2:10-11).  

A Special Note to Everyone:
This writing, this article/study, then, is not for everyone, especially those who refuse to see the truth and want to argue about it -- in their own refusal they have become blind and accepted a delusion that our Heavenly Father allows, even supports -- sort of like -- you get what you wish for -- hear what you want to hear -- a delusion He allows you to live in.  This Truth, the JESUS is not His Name, then, is for those truly seeking the truth and willing to follow the Spirit of Truth (John 16:13-114) as revealed, not by me but by Him, our Savior, YaHshua.  I could rattle on and on, but, unless He opens your mind to this truth, surrounding His Holy Name, then the removing of the delusion will mean nothing to you -- your deluded truth will mean more to you and He will let the delusion rule in your mind, convinced in total error as your truth, as a delusion the world has accepted and lives in.   But, if you are on the fence, please read on, and if you still have questions then write to me and let's discuss it -- my email: -- I make every attempt to answer every email personally, and throughly.

Please understand, I in no way question the sincere hearts of those seeking, no matter which side you may be one, especially to those called to the Father through YaHshua (Mat 11:27). It is understood that we are not born with complete knowledge. A baby does not know its parent's names or its family name until it learns to understand what the parents are saying. Our spiritual lives are begin like children, we go through a process, first we are calling on our "daddy", our "dada" and our "mama", but sooner of later, if we are moving through our growth toward maturity, we will understand which family we belong to and eventually know our father and our mother's names and then the Family name as well, which we will come to see gives us and identity as well. In this Spiritual this Family we have a big brother, the first of many, the "First Fruit", and it is His sacrifice that makes Him our Savior -- Salvation sent to us from God the Father. Sad, but too many have become stuck, some on purpose, some by plan and some by ignorance, and some are just chained up by loads of doctrine, unable to break free.   And there are others who finding the beginnings of the Truth are then bound up by others in doctrine -- chains of doctrine -- there is Jewish Doctrine, the Torah Doctrine, Christian Doctrine, the assimilating of Pagan Doctrine and each against the other's Doctrine -- everyone becoming mired down in their Doctrine of choice or habit, following down that broad path into the tar pit of never ending Doctrine. What is it about a New Covenant that so many do not understand?  

There is a small calling to this truth -- if there is to be a doctrine then let it be the Doctine of the Anointed -- to this freedom in Him, I pray it is you, that you are called and see this one truth, above all others -- JESUS is not His Name, that is a deception, His Birth Name is YaHshua, and always has been, then and now.

(2Jn 1:9)  Whosoever transgress, and abide not in the doctrine of The Christ (The Anointed), has not God (the Father) He that abide in (Lives in) the doctrine of The Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

(John 6:44)  No man can come to Me, except the Father which has sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
(Mat 11:27)  All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.

His Name was never "Jesus", and I will spend the rest of this article presenting the truth to this matter. But, as previously stated, the name most of Christianity accepts today is a fake, a false name, a deception and can be recognized as nothing else -- the fact is that this name never, ever, existed before 1611 AD -- you know, that is the date that the King James Bible came into being?  (see also KJV Only). Also, something we hear all the time, No on knows for sure, much less how to pronounce it, which is a lie.  The birth name of our Savior has never been lost, it has always been around, just ignored and replaced -- in fact, it is still in the Bible, in the Old Testament, in the old translations and the modern translations, it only gets changed or replaced in the New Testament. If His true Name has always been available, then, ask yourself, why use another name, a different name? Yes, I know, I keep asking that question, because it needs to be asked, over and over again -- go ask your Pastor -- that should be interesting.  If His Name, the Name He was Named, is in the Old Testament, then why was it changed?  Go ahead, go to your pastor or minister or your priest and ask them.  Just so you know, the Book in the Old Covenant, called JOSHUA, is the Old English transliteration for the modern pronunciation or transliteration, YaHshua -- Joshua, back then, is YaHshua today.  So, where did the bogus name, JESUS come from?  Oh, and don't get thrown off with the first response that the name, JESUS, is the Greek -- it is NOT Greek, not even close.  More, much more on this later.  Just ask and you will see for yourself how strong the delusion is.

I hope this study/article will help those looking or being led to this truth to have the strength to stand up and be counted among those called to this truth.  If your Pastor does not know, then he should, and if he denies what is so clearly true then maybe you should find a different Pastor -- again, that should be interesting, challenging, for sure, gutsy, yes, and perfectly within your Spiritual rights and even -- duty.  Be forewarned, however, you may not like the outcome, because it is most likely they certainly won't.  But, wait, aren't we supposed to be kind and sensitive to other's feelings and just shut up?  YaHshua, our Savior, called the religious leader of His day, snakes and vipers and even, children of Satan.  Harsh, yes, but that is the Son of God, right?  What about us?  Aren't we supposed to be all loving and sweet?  

(Eph 5:10)  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
(Eph 5:11)  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

(Eph 5:11)  Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Strong's #1651 reprove or expose -- is to -- admonish, convince, tell a fault, rebuke, reprove.

The enemy uses many different methods to keep us suppressed and to keep people away from the name that Identifies the One and Only Savior and the One and only God who can call the dead back to life.  In Proverbs 30:4, a challenge is laid down -- What is the name of God and what is the name of His Son, can you tell?  That is a question for us today. Remember, way back then, there was no concept for the God of Israel to be a Son or to have a Son.  The verse is prophetic and the challenge is to answer the Doctrine of the Anointed One, and to identify Him, above all others, and by doing that, we will also be able to Identify the Father, into whose Family we seek to enter.


His Name is Not JESUS, and it is not IESUS and it is not IESOUS

It is your personal responsibility in matters concerning your life, the way you see the world, the way you see the Church or Churches and to whom you pledge your spirit, your spiritual loyalty -- it is all on you. Please, allow me to present a verse that should be the final answer, it is not the only verse, but is a final answer, at least it should be, as you will see --

(Rev 11:18) And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward to Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Your Name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

If you look the word "fear", as in, "...fear thy name", in Strong's or some other Greek dictionary, you will find a better choice for this word, such as, "to be in awe", that is to "revere" -- Strong's G5399. There is coming a time when the "reward" of "eternal life" is going to be handed out to those called Saints, Servants, Prophets and those that respect and revere His Name.  Those left out of many peoples and nations, will be angry, very angry -- the corrupt of the world -- those corrupting the earth by their unrepentant sin, hatred, calling bad good and good bad, turning sin into excuses, and for their false love, a love that leads to violence -- not to forget, fake humility (Col 2:18).  It is the SIN of unrepentant mankind that become the destroyers the earth.  

Strong's Dictionary -- destroy :  "corrupt, ruin, rot, perish"

The final word of concern in this verse where YaHshua is proclaimed King of Kings, we read the word "destroy", this word would make more sense by using one of the other choices in this translation  -- we see the sense more clearly as those individuals who rage, and not receiving the reward, those angry, as those "corrupting" the earth, bringing the earth to ruin by their rebellion and rejection of the one and only Savior, YaHshua. These "corrupters" of the earth do not "fear the Name" of the Creator the one having ultimate power over life and death -- they corrupt the whole earth by their Sin, continuing to reject the very person and way that would save them and this earth.  Sin, moral corruption is the great destroyer, and to those who love to lie and cheat and steal, murder, and on and on the list of sin goes, to them, the corrupters of the world, have no fear of Him of His Name, the expression of His Glory.  

So, the Name is important and it is a corrupt mind that allows corrupt thinking to distort this truth, setting the path of destruction, even on this whole world. Again, your responsibility, not mine, for you to clear your mind of outside influences, from teachings that can be demonstrated as false, or in error, or temporarily misunderstood -- it is up to you to take that first step. Take your pick of any excuse you want, but, finally, in the end, decide to fight the concepts you have been indoctrinated into under false precepts and false Christ'. Examine your own heart and mind, please, and know if it is the truth you seek or just a wonderful feeling of worldly bliss?  Pray to our Heavenly Father to see clearly, perhaps for the very first time.  If you are reading this, well, that is a type of first step, right?

It is not my intention to offend anyone, but some will be, and I cannot help that. I pray, however, you wake up to the fact that a great deception has overcome this world -- another messiah is preached all the while the preachers hold up the written word of the Living God and proclaim another Christ (John 5:43), a Christ not named in the original writings but substituted by the blind or the deceiver, only the God of Heaven knows for sure. Still, some will say their Bible has the name Jesus in it and that is the name all the verses of the New Testament refers to, and also, look at all the miracles in that name Jesus, not to mention all the prayers answered.

That is exactly my point, the deception runs deep and has been ongoing, in development really, for the past few hundred years. Make no mistake, the Bible and its message is true and faithful, and our Heavenly Father looks on the heart of the seeker and the convert, but a time is coming, and for some is now, when He is going to uncover this deception, this delusion. Even now many in the Evangelical churches are using a name, Yeshua, that is almost right and true, but they use it interchangeably with the bogus name, Jesus.  What is righteousness mixed with lies and evil?  Right, corruption and deception.  

Miracles in the Name JESUS

As for miracles in the name of JESUS?  Can you name a name among the Pagan religions of this world that does not experience answers to their prayer or miracles in the name of their god?  That was a proof with YaHshua because the miracles He brought about were of such dynamic, over the top, unquestionable depth -- He just said the word.  Only once did He pray a request, and that was at the grave of Lazarus and then only for those around Him, for their benefit so they would know where this power to raise the dead came from.  No one, after the First Century, has exhibited such things since, but all religions, even religions of devils and demons have performed miracles and answered prayers.  Other religions could not ever exist if this were not true.  Who is going to follow a god of stone or wood if it does not seem to be answering prayer?   

If I have not scared you off at this point, please continue, with an open, truth seeking mind, I pray you will find this article informative and challenging and will give you concern for your spiritual well being. Many of you already know and have accepted this truth and for you, this should stiffen your resolve not to waiver in the face critics and those refusing this basic truth.

I should not have to prove this in an age exploding with knowledge like never before everyone either knows or has access to the same knowledge at the same time. Most like to see themselves as people in the know, well informed, intelligent and collectively, as a people, informed as no others since the time of our beginning.

Still, the Christian community is not concerned about this subject at all. There is a deafening silence when it comes to this deception. The ignorance from the pulpit is astounding, or it is a deliberate conspiracy by the preachers, teachers and scholars of the bible to deceive those honestly coming to the God of the Bible for answers and seeking salvation.
The deception concerning this all important subject is demonstrated in the silence regarding to our Savior's proper birth name as delivered by an ANGEL from Heaven. The Angel messenger could not have given the name Jesus to Mary and Joseph for the simple reason the name, JESUS, did not exist then -- no one, not the Romans, nor the Greeks, and most of all not the Jews had ever heard the name Jesus before. It would take 1,600 years before anyone would hear the name Jesus proclaimed as the Savior of the world! The promotion of the "bogus" name, Jesus, continues without so much as a question of origins. A Name all must come to and through whom all must be saved -- and no one is asking where the name Jesus came from?

Yes, there is a few, very few raising the question, but it is amazing in this age of information that this truth is still so covered and ignored. Yes, we are seeing more and more television preachers beginning to use the name Yeshua and Jesus interchangeably, but you can see they are not committed, bur listen to the Biblical scholars, do you hear it -- total silence. One would think the Schools of Theology, the professors of Biblical education would all be howling at the preachers and teachers to get it right. Know the bogus name Jesus is a great error and begin replacing it with the true name of our Savior and you will quickly see why it is so important. (Acts 4:12, Phi 2:11, Considering the name Jesus is in error, replace the bogus name with His correct birth-name, YaHshua, as you read your own Bible and see what a difference it makes)

Little by little some have heard a strange name mentioned, the Hebrew/Aramaic Name of our Savior, the Name given Him at birth, YaHshua (YH's Savior) but this has been ignored for the most part. After all, look at all the miracles preformed in the name Jesus. Dreams have been proclaimed, prayer answered and all in the name of Jesus. This is true, but every religion, every religion can make the same claim. Miracles preformed, prayer answered and in the end -- in the end of those days -- the days we live in now, or soon will -- even Satan and his agents are able to preform miracles and to even appear as angels of light (2 Cor 11:13-15, 2 Tim 3:13, Col 2:18).   Wait a minute, are you going to look these verses up in your own bible?  Good, but just in case and for dramatic effect --

(2Co 11:13-15)  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

(2Ti 3:13)  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
(Col 2:18)  Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary (false) humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

(Rev 13:13-14)  And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
(Rev 16:14)  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

(2 Th 2:9-10) ... even he whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all deception of wickedness for those who are being lost, because they didn't receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Miracles and answers to prayer in the Church, the congregation of His people?  Absolutely -- but in this age and the coming age that cannot be posted as a proof you have the right god.  Again, this too, circles around to His Name, a Name given to Him by His Father, our Heavenly Father.  Now, back to the proving of all thing --

Be forewarned, not all in the Christian Church is from our Creator.  I know, right, not a very nice thing to say?  But, look at what was happening in the first century Church, the Apostles were seeing the wolves coming in among the believers, and those coming in for personal greed,  and there were those too, advocates of angel worship -- all the agents of Satan, knowingly or unknowingly, entering the flock, entering in among the called ones of YaHshua.  And, if then, within the first decades this New Covenant religion, then how much more today? Satan has had 2000 years of infiltrating, what the world calls the Christian Church.  History has demonstrated this visible work, and exposed this work of men to be full of every sin and evil imaginable and all under and in the name of Jesus. I thank my God He saw fit to allow His Holy Name to be hidden, to only be revealed at His choosing and in His time according to our ability to understand and accept this truth, as delivered to us by His Holy Spirit of Truth -- first to His Apostles and now to us.  He has determined that a certain number of people would always know and call on His Holy Name -- not some fake name, or replacement name.  Replace the fake/false name with His Birth Name and see how this verse changes everything -- See the verses change when His Birth Name is restored back to the Name His Father gave Him.  Also, notice, it does not say that the Father would be not be known, but that an "antichrist" does not have the Father.  

1Jn 2:22  Who is the liar but he who denies that YaHshua is the messiah? This is the Antithe messiah, he who denies the FATHER and the Son.
1Jn 2:23  Whoever denies the Son, the same doesn't have the FATHER. He who confesses the Son has the FATHER also.

We should not be too amazed at this, I suppose, the church becoming so polluted by its pagan customs.   We see many examples in Christian traditions that can easily be proven to be of pagan in origin, handed down through the Babylonian system to the Greeks and the Romans and from that pagan society into the Roman Church, then from the Roman pollution carried on by Protestant daughters, having come out of her and then more claiming the Christian faith, the daughters and sisters of the Protestant movement, all joined in pagan festivals handed down, even inherited from the pagan religions of Rome, who, a mentioned, found their religion coming out of Mother Babylon.  Don't blame me for this truth, just go to any Encyclopedia, or Wikipedia and do a little research as to the origin of Easter, and Christmas -- that all aside -- His Name above all, His Name above every Name, separates Him from these pagan names and doctrines.  The Doctrine of YaHshua.  The Doctrine that counts -- that we believe in Him and Only Him as the ONLY Begotten Son of the Living God  --

(2Jn 1:9)  Whosoever transgresses, and abides not in the doctrine of Christ (The Anointed), has not God (The Father). He that abides in the doctrine of Christ (Anointed), he has both the Father and the Son.

Those claiming to be Christians do not seem too concerned as they go happily about observing pagan practices and traditions. These pagan traditions and festivals renamed to match places and names found in the Scriptures.  For example, the pagans had a favorite holiday where believers would go out into the forest and cut down a tree and drag it home, standing it up and nailing it down, they would deck it out and lay presents at its feet.  This was a pagan practice that the Christian leaders connected to THEIR messiah.  What does the Bible, the Word of of the Living God have to say about this?  Well, one of His Prophets reveals this --

(Jer 10:3-4)  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cut a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

This alone should send up red flags for the believers that something is wrong. When challenged by those outside their "church" they see it as the work of Satan tempting them and close their ears.  Modern Christianity exposed as a Pagan practicing religion -- Easter, the literal worship of the rising sun -- given legitimacy in Acts 12:4, where the KJV replaces the word, PASSOVER, with the pagan word, EASTER. It seems that as soon as someone is in the process of conversion -- cut to the heart, their mind opened to the Message of the Holy Bible, being moved to full on repentance and then seeking baptism, followed by a strong desire to know more, the teachers bring the new convert into the pagan traditions, all tied to a false name, a false identity, leading away from the One True and only Name that points to the One and only Son, YaHshua, the Name given to our True Savior at birth, a Name that must be confessed, above all others -- and this Name is not hidden, a whole Book in the Old testament carries that name.  We are told that that all important name, would be a name found among men, not a secret and that it would be the only name -- there would be NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN -- When those words were proclaimed the name JESUS did not exist, and yet, this will be the name the person brought to repentance, by the message of the Holy Bible, the Hebrew/Christian Bible, would then be baptized into a name that would be totally strange to the Apostles and to YaHshua Himself.  

(Act 4:12)  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.  (This verse take no interpretation at all.  It says what it says)

Usually new converts begin their journey with the one group from whom they received the message of Salvation, they begin worship by putting all of their trust, as a child might, in the preacher or teachers of that group -- putting the Message behind them.  But, no matter from whom it is heard, the message is from the Original Messiah and Savior and His Apostles.  You have heard that old disclaimer, "Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent"?  But, in this case it is not the innocent being protected but the truth being covered up.  The division among the various Christian organizations is ledgendary, but they all seem to have one thing in common, while pointing fingers at each other as cults, they worship in the same name, JESUS.  Even the Jehovah's Witnesses, famous for claiming Jehovah as Creator God, they worship a Savior in the name, JESUS, same as those who claim they are a cult -- this is a truth seen around the world.  The Roman Catholics, says the world must join them because all other Christian Churches came out of them and must return.  Those daughters she claims as hers point their finger at her and accuse her of having murdered millions of new converts and others for not bowing to their authority -- although, this historical truth is fading.  Out of these Protestant daughters more Jesus worshipers were spawned.  We are not talking about individual good hearts or perceived goodness or intentions, but group organizations, supported by the membership, with whom none have any authority or power.  There are many other religions and groups and organizations that believe in doing beneficial works and upholding a moral code and demonstrate a charitable heart, but are not dedicated to YaHshua as the Son of the Living God and our Savior -- it all comes down to whom you confess, is the One and only Savior, the First Born of the Living God of Heaven.  What did our Savior, the true Savior YaHshua, say to those religious leaders of that time and period, when He walked among humanity?  Remember, these were religious leaders who were the keepers of the written Word of the Living God they called on, YaHWeH.  Applying the words, YaHshua spoke toward them to our time, our days -- it was a truth then, and still a truth today.

(Mat 23:15)Woe unto you, scribes (Religious authors) and Pharisees (Religious separatist), hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte (convert), and when he (or she) is made, you make him (or her) twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Do you think this may apply? This is a charge our Savior laid at the feet of the Religious leaders of his days while in the flesh. I think it does applies today, still, the Message of Salvation is preached and hearts are changed but those preaching the message then take the new convert down another path, a path that leads away from the One True Savior, YaHshua.  The new convert is taught doctrines and customs and festivals that are not found in Scripture, but can be found in the histories of Babylonian religions.  -- Easter, Sunrise Sun worship, Christ-Mass, Halloween (All souls eve), and a mixture of other doctrines and customs, depending upon which of the Christian groups or cult you are united with.

It is alarming, to me, to see “called” people turn to the first group they encounter as their spiritual home, it is understandable, but still alarming to witness the sincere heart of a new believer being turned so quickly to a false belief in a false hope, like the Rapture Doctrine. Certainly there are those hearing the "call" at a worship service and do feel some loyalty to that group but in truth your loyalty should be to the Savior, to the "calling" itself, to the Word of God, for it is by the Word that we are convinced, the presenter of this truth are only a tool.  The Word is the souce and the Spirit is the mover --

(James 1:18)  Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

(Eph 1:13-14)  In whom you also trusted, after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel (Good News) of your salvation: in whom also after that you believed, you were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, (14)  which is the earnest (down payment) of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His Glory.

(2Ti 2:15)  Study to shew your self approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The preachers, teachers, pastors, elders, priests, ministers, etc., etc., are not the way but only an instrument and a fallible instrument at that. I know of some that were called separate from any group or preacher, "called" by the reading of the Bible for themselves, their stony hearts crushed in repentance and immediately join with the first group of believers they encounter becoming, sometimes, entrapped by the doctrine and teachings of that group, being socialized into that group, never questioning motive, giving up their Freedom in the Messiah for the comfort of the group. Once “called” your devotion needs to be to our Lord and Savior and your job is to be searching the Word, studying the words, not just reading (2 Tim 2:15 -- Strong's #G4704, to make effort, labor, be diligent, study).

You do not need a massive library, really, the Bible stands on its own.  Men have spent lifetimes finding verses to cross reference with other verses, and with little or no Bible aides. Today we are fortunate that we have the work of these men to help us, but they prove that all you really need is a Bible and to set your goal on knowing more about your Savior and God. Read, take notes, mark pages, the Holy Bible is a set of study books all bound together with everything you need to know about our Creator and Savior YaHshua.    

Not too many professing Christians seem to care, happy to just float along, take in the feel good messages and go their way -- after all, they were baptized into the name of Jesus, right?  That should be enough, and no one wants to hear that they are in the wrong baptism, do they?   They should care, they should be hungry to know more, hungry for Him, our Savior, hungry to get this right, to get this one thing right -- once saved always saved, is that it? When the initial excitement of repentance wears off it is back to business as usual, for some, but for others it becomes a crazy ride of religious fanaticism (from Latin, meaning "frenzy") trying to get or hold that feeling of that original flush of repentance (heartfelt remorse, deep contrition over past sins -- a true religious experience) over and over again. Soon, you see this same kind of religious frenzy similar to pagan, or primitive religions around the world, the jumping up and down, the swaying back and forth, the fits, the falling backward, and on and on it goes -- and -- of course, there are those all in between.  It seems that this emotional expression displayed by some, not all, but outsiders see as fits, is all about confirming the initiated has or is blessed with the Holy Spirit.  

Our Savior compared a person entering the Kingdom as a little child, becoming like one a child, and what is it a child does above all else?  He or she believes their parents, without question they believe.  What happens with some, however, is they don’t believe in their heart of hearts so they need the physical confirmation, and there are spirits out there only too willing to oblige by giving the seeker of such things a very spiritual feeling, A child of the Living God is one of spiritual control as His Spirit is one of order and discipline.  Once the excitement of new knowledge, of being called, dissipates our focus should be on knowing more, growing in knowledge about Him and the Holy Bible is really the only book we need.   In this age of increased knowledge, however, in this day and age we have many other works to help us, but the primary book is and always should be your Bible. We are to move from being spiritual children, filled with childish behavior and grow into becoming mature adults of the Spirit.  
(Rom 8:14-16)  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.  For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

(1Co 14:19-20)  But in the church I would rather speak five intelligible words to instruct others than ten thousand words in a tongue.  Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.

(2Pe 3:18)  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior YaHshua the Anointed. To Him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Time to end the Ignorance
With the knowledge explosion it is time to stop being ignorant about the Sacred Identity of our Creator, our Savior and our Heavenly Father. The following verses are but a small sampling about what your Bible has to say on the subject and it is importance.

Make no mistake my friends, the end days will be a battle of names, yes it will -- It will be a Battle over Names. Make no mistake my friends, the Beast will have a name and it will be forced on everyone and it is not just a name but a name that will be represented by a number, as well, and the False Prophet (false teacher, preacher, called the Second Beast) will cause people to worship this First Beast, this Beast given the power of Satan -- imagine, Satan giving a man his power, his seat of authority?  It is all about the name of the Beast and the worship of this Beast, and if you refuse it you will not be able to hold a job or have a business to sell your goods. Hey I'm not making this up, read all about it in the Book of Revelations.  

The Mark, the Name of the Beast and His Number, We need to Avoid:

(Rev 13:11)  And I beheld another Beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
(Rev 13:12)  And he exercises all the power of the First Beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the First Beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
(Rev 13:13)  And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
(Rev 13:14)  And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the Beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
(Rev 13:15)  And he had power to give life unto the Image of the Beast, that the Image of the Beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the Beast should be killed.
(Rev 13:16-17)  And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the Mark, or the Name of the Beast, or the number of his name.
(Rev 13:18)  Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The Seal, the Mark, We Need

(Rev 7:3)  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
(Rev 9:4)  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
(Rev 14:1)  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

Names are important. Check out these few verses and then dare anyone to say, It does not matter.  
John 3:18; 5:43; 17:12, Philippians 2:9, Isa 52:6, Mal 1:4, Acts 4;12

This is only the tip of the pyramid. The name Jesus is not the name given to our Savior at His Birth. You might as well say, after a couple of hundred years, He was switched at birth, a late switch to be sure but switched all the same. What if you had a child and you named him, or her, and this name had been Legally entered into the birth records, into the Book of Names in Heaven, and later someone came along and changed your child's name to some name completely different? Would that be considered important? What if your child moves away to another country and you pass away and left an estate worth millions to your child, the child you named, a birth name identifying this child as part of your family, the rightful heir. The child's name change could mean a loss of an inheritance. Names are important, very important and in your heart of hearts you know it. Still I find people continually saying it is not important, unless, of course, like the example, it has to do with your name or that or your children. Some say there is no proof but really ---- read on.

Proof is in the Letters

It is easy to prove and you do not necessarily need the Bible to prove it. The Letter 'J' did not exist at the time our Savior was named by the angelic messenger from heaven. In fact this letter "J", as we are familiar with it today, came into being around the 14th to 15th century, a corruption of the Greek, and Roman/Latin. It was used interchangeably with the letter i, and was not considered a consonant until around the 17th century, then coming into its own as a letter, no longer a derivative of the i letter and pronounced completely different with a sound of its own.

Webster's New World Dictionary: "J, j, 1. the tenth letter of the English alphabet: Formerly a variant of I, i, in the seventeenth century it became established as a consonant only, as in Julius, originally spelled Iulius.
A variant of I, i, so let's go to the dictionary again, this time under i: "the ninth letter of the English alphabet: Via Latin from the Greek iota, a modification of the Phoenician (Semitic, yodh, a hand)."

The J in English is not a transliteration of the Hebrew Y as the Greek i once was, but is no longer. What did it say, again?  the J never became anything until the 17th Century.  The Y letter is the transliterated English letter for the Hebrew/Aramaic Yod, or ' -- the Greek and Latin i letter used to be, and in many parts of Europe is still, pronounced as Y, as in Yod, or Yah, but for the most part, the i letter is no longer suitable. Still, in some parts of the world John is Yaohn, pronounced like Yawn, and sometimes Iawn.   Some pronounce the name as ISIS, or Isous, or Deus and Zeus and Hey Zeus as we hear in the Spanish languages, much of it is how the ear picks it up or hears it. The i has changed some, however, as in the name first introduced in the English translations of the Bible, most notably the King James Version, it was written "Iesus" as can be see in the original 1611 KJV Bible and was pronounced as Hay-Zeus, by many in European states. The i letter taking on the Hey or Hay, and this being translated as "the or hey Zeus". Yes, yes, I know and have heard all the arguments about how there is no proof the name "Jesus" originated from the expression, "The Zeus", but look at it, say it, as do all the Spanish speaking peoples, it sounds like Hay-Zeus, dosen't it, because that is how they say JESUS -- heyZeus.  No direct connection?  What a coincidence, right?  What does it matter? Hay-Zeus does not come close to the birth name of our Savior, YaHshua. It does, however, sound just like a call to the Greek god Zeus, a god also honored by the Romans and the Greeks. Originally the Greek Latin letter i was pronounced like the letter Y, as in Yah, not i as in, in or "it" like today -- just an example of some letter changing in sound over time. Along the way in the religious wars between the Roman Church and the Church of England the letter i changed to a J and from there the whole thing changed and became a bastard blend of Latin and new English, far removed from our Savior's real Name, YaHshua, or even the Old English, Joshua and changed into JESUS.

For more on how all of this is dealt with and exposed, go to this link --
Please note, however, like many other sources they accept the name Jesus as His Name -- yet they go on to demontrate and prove that His Name is anything but that name.  Still, lots of into if you want to follow up.

More than you need to Know?
There is something going around, a small thing, but a thing all the same -- some are pronouncing the Name of the God of Israel letter by letter.  Yodh Hey Waw Hey -- this is not the pronunciation of His Holy Name, this is the spelling.  Y H W H, is the spelling of His Name, as an English Transliteration, opposed to a translation.  This is what has happened, for some, while reading other material, from other studies explaining the spelling of His Holy Name.  The new student has mistakenly thought this to be a pronunciations, so they say the letters, yodh, hey, waw, hey, as if they are saying His Name, but they are not, they are spelling it.  I have seen this repeated in some emails I have received.  This has been explained and will be explained again.  

We need to correct this error.  We will call it an "inherited error or mistake -- accepted as a truth".   An inherited error is something a person has learned or been taught, directly or indirectly, sometimes from birth, it is something a person has grown up with.  These inherited errors are hard to mentally unravel.  One of the biggest deceptions of all time, it self the largest of all "inherited error", is that concerning the Name of our Savior, and the literal image of Him, that is presented to the world.  Jesus, pronounced as Geezus, or HeyZeus, is just such an inherited error -- this error is handed down from generation to generation and never given another thought.  It is hard to get over a lie that has been accepted, that has been built into your everyday life, and never questioned, but, still, it is a lie.  Let's get into a little more as we continue to unravel this mistake about letters being spelled out, as opposed to vocalized, as a unit in a pronunciation.   Of course, by now, you should already understand that the false name JESUS is not, and never was His Name.

Semitic yodh? Hey?  Waw? Hey? Modification? This is the first Hebrew (Semitic) character (Y, the transliterated from in English, the yodh, as the indicator for the pronunciation, it is the name of the Letter and how to use that letter Y, it is not the pronunciation itself and we need to keep that in mind) -- again, the first semetic letter, Y, found in the personal name of the God of the Old Testament, and in the name of our Savior, is called the yodh or yod, which give us a clue as to how to use this letter when pronounced, and in the Old English it used to be the pronunciation for the English character, 'J' .  This letter used to be pronounced with the Y sound like one would say, Yaw, for Jaw.  Of course, by the time this one change had completed its transformation, His Birth Name had already been changed to something other than His birth name.  This movement of the J letter from the Latin I letter and becoming a consonant on its own, merely move His Name further from His Birth Name, a Name pointing toward His Heavenly Father.  Consider the implications if somehow your "family name" was changed and your family took on a completely different identity?  Well, that is what has happened with the Family Name of our Creator.  And it all begins with the changing of that first letter, from Y to I to J -- as represented in the English transliterations.  Y H W H, or YaHWeH and then to our Savior's Name, YaHshua, YaHushua, or YaHushuah -- do you see the connection?

Vocal pronunciation of the Y, of this Hebrew letter is found in saying "yod" as this gives you the sound of that letter as it would be used. As an example, it is not Yed, or Ye, or Yedh, but Yod, as in Ya. By repeating, saying, "yod", you hear the vocalization of the 'Y' letter. Take the name, Joshua, it should be Yoshua, or Yashua, or Yhshua, or Yahshua. The spelling may differ slightly but sounding out of the 'Y' letter remains the same. Some have tried to make a big deal out of several different spellings, but the differences in spelling have to do with the vowels, some preferring "e" over "a", but by following the guide to pronouncing the Hebrew for the English character, or the "yod" (yodh), it is easy to see, or hear that the "e" vowel is not the vowel that should be used.  It is not the "vowel" to be used as the aid in pronouncing the name of the Living, Creator God, YHWH, and, or His son, YHshua. While there can be an argument made for the use of the "e" vowel from a Hebrew, or Aramaic point of view it would become the long "ee", in actual practice, and would sound like an "a" as in the word, ball. The English language has turned the long "ee" of the Semitic language into a sharp sound as found in words like "yes" and "Jesus".  

The true yod or, 'Y' is to Yah, or Yahweh, or Yahshua as the Jay or, 'J' , has become to the false name, Jesus. Remember, we are dealing with the name, the identity of the God of the Old Testament, and a Name given to the Savior of man-kind. The 'J' in Jesus should be replaced with the English character that expresses the original 'yod' or the letter 'Y', even then it does not work.  In the Greek, or Latin, the Character is the i, thus the y, the i, and the yod should all have the same pronunciation, but they do not, unfortunately, and this also clues us in to the fact that the changing of His Birth name began with the Greek and quickly moved to the Latin change. In the Old Testament the modern translators choose to replace the personal name of the Creator with a title, LORD, and by spelling this title in Capital letters they throw it into the readers lap to recognize the personal name of the Living God, YaH, or YaHWeH (Yahweh). When the eyes of the reader see the term 'LORD' in capital letters the reader is supposed to know to read the sacred name. How many know this, let alone read the Old Testament on a regular basis? How many have heard the Sunday morning preachers teaching this, or even mentioning it? This practice of using capital letters, however, is not followed in the New Testament, even when the Messiah or one of the apostles quotes from the Old Testament they, the translators, fail to follow the principle they set forth regarding the Sacred Name of the God of the Old Testament (Okay, some do, but most do not) and present these four letter, L O R D, as Lord, the emphasis taken away.  The Pattern is clear, a continual creeping away from His Holy Identity.  Mat 11:27, Acts 4:12, Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:9 -- consider the latter verse by replacing the false name with His true Birth Name, YaHshua, and you will see just how important this lie is to Satan, and more important to all of mankind.  If words can kill, so can they save -- Acts 11:14.

You will notice, in your own Bible, that there is no preface, or forward to the New Testament covering the handling of sacred names, as there is in most Old Testament Preface -- Only the Old Testament, it seems, contains their excuse for using a lesser term, misusing and abusing the Holy Name of our Creator, even replacing it, but when it comes to the New Testament it is ignored. In the Preface of most Bibles there is no mention of the changing of names, or substituting titles in place of personal names in the New Testament, only the Old Testament -- why? Because they are changing His Name, no longer using a substitute but literally changing the Name of our Savior and there can be not explanation for it, as we find the excuses for the substitutions in the Old Testament. Imagine the controversy if a Preface was added to the New Testament attempting an explanation for changing the Old English Name "Joshua", as seen in the Old Testament, to Jesus (Geesau), or Iesus (heyZeus).  Even in the Old Testament Preface of the NIV, we are told that the Holy Name of the God of Israel would be represented by the four capital letter, L O R D, and that these letter would be used to represent the four, Y H W H.  But, what would or could they say in a New Testament Preface?  Nothing.

The name JESUS could not have existed at the time of the Saviors birth, much less at the time of His death. Nor did this bogus name exist when the writers of the New Testament were putting pen to parchment. Is this important? Isn't a rose by any other name still a rose? Yes, to both questions, but calling a rose by another name could be quite confusing to a room full of children learning to speak and to write. Of course the error in this kind of thinking is obvious, especially when it comes to humans, or even gods. It is cute, in the human intellect, to devise sayings like that of the rose, and to ask questions that seem to confound absolute authority (absolute authority - God Himself). For example: "When a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it", does it make a noise? You get the point, but to illustrate: My name is Dan and you can call me by any other name, but I still remain Dan, my birth name, and that is the only name I will answer to -- call me on the phone and ask for Rod and I will tell you you have the wrong number and hang up. See how stupid such a smart statements can be? You can call me Bob, or Paul, or Ed, but I will only answer to Dan. So, yes, a rose by any other name is still a rose, but I am not Bob, nor Paul, nor Ed, I am Dan, and a rose is a rose not a tulip, or a cow. I received my name at birth from my father and he had a special reason for giving me that name. Is this important? To him it was, and eventually to me also. Of course the answer to such a question should be plain enough, especially concerning the Messiah, and especially when you read verses like, Acts 4:12.  In case you did not have the time to go to the Link mentioned ealier, here is a sampling:

The following reference in brackets [ ] is from "The Free Dictionary" under - "Names and Titles":
[ According to most historians, Jesus probably lived in Galilee for most of his life and he probably spoke Aramaic and Hebrew. The name "Jesus" is an English transliteration of the Latin (Iesus) which in turn comes from the Greek name Iesous. The name has also been translated into English as "Joshua." Since most scholars hold that Jesus was an Aramaic-speaking Jew living in Galilee around 30 AD/CE, it is highly improbable that he had a Greek personal name. Further examination of the Septuagint finds that the Greek, in turn, is a transliteration of the Hebrew/Aramaic Yeshua (Yeshua he will save) a contraction of Hebrew name Yehoshua Yeho Yahweh [is] shua` help/salvation, usually Romanized as Joshua). As a result, scholars believe that one of these was most likely the name that Jesus was known by during his lifetime by his peers.]

Notice the name, "Jesus", is a "transliteration of the Latin", not Greek, and not Hebrew or Aramaic, but Latin. For those that insist the Greek is the inspired language how would you answer this? When we understand that most of the traditions and customs come from the Roman Christian Church so do the names they use -- from the Latin Church of Rome, not from the Greek.  And read again the last line from the quote above -- now there is an admission.  

YaHshua -  Some Say, Yeshua, Certainly Not Jesus

"YaHshua" is his name and it was given to Him at birth by the order of an angelic messenger sent by His Heavenly Father. This name has meaning, a definition above your name, or my name, or any other name on earth. By definition it means: YaH's Savior, or Savior of YaH (YH), (Matthew 1:21). The translators, in their great wisdom, or lack thereof, have seen fit to cloak, even replace, the birth name of our Savior with a bogus name. Do they know better? Absolutely, and it can be proven. In the KJV under Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8 the name "Jesus" appears, but the context show that it is really speaking of "Joshua" (Yoshua, YaHshua) of the Old Testament, Moses' right hand man, the guy given the privilege of leading the chosen people of God into the Kingdom . In some KJV bibles a note is made to let the reader know that while the name "Jesus" appears in the text it is really, "Joshua" (pronounced, YaHshua). Talk about double speak. Yes, the scholars know, they have to but have decided to follow a tradition, as they say in the NIV preface, of our "forefathers".

Virtually all of the modern translations have corrected glaring error found within the text, translating the name properly to "Joshua" (Yoshua, YaHshua)), and that is where the scholarly translators shoot themselves in the proverbial foot. By replacing the name "Jesus" with the name, "Joshua"(remember Acts 7:45 and Hebrew 4:8), they admit that the name "Jesus" is in error, they admit, by this action, that the name, Yahshua, is correct. At the very least they admit the name "JESUS" is not right. As both of these names are supposed to be the same they correct the one but not the other, not the one that is most important, that of the Messiah. Remembering that the 'J' never existed prior to the 14th century, as a constant this name "Joshua" should at least be spelled Yoshua, or Yahshua, to preserve the original pronunciation of the old English, JOSHUA. We would not think to do this kind of violence to our own names, so why allow it when it comes to the identity of the greatest power in all of creation, our Heavenly Father, and His son, our Savior. It would be different if the Creator had seen fit not to reveal His personal identity to us, but this is not the case.

The name, the identity, of the God of the Old Testament is presented in the Hebrew writings of the Scriptures by the hand of the scribes of Israel, writing out the name of the Living Creator God over six thousand times (6,800, the count varies some, depending on who is doing the counting). They did not change the name, no, but they did something in their own righteousness that ultimately denied that part of their mission to the world, making the name of the God of Israel great in all the world (Rom 9:17, Ex 9:16). They were to perpetuate the record, which they did, and His Name, which they did not, Instead they covered the Name, they profaned the Name and identity of the greatest force in all creation -- instead of glorifying His Name they put up vowel points to indicate the pronunciation of a different word or term, a term that is equivalent to a common term, "Lord" (Master, or Boss). They did this attempting to avoid saying, or using, the sacred Name of the Creator as being too holy to pronounce and to keep from violating the third commandment (Exodus 20:7), at least that is their excuse, and remember I said, in their own righteousness. Our Creator says, "He will make His name great among the nations" (Mal 1:11, 14 - John 12:28). Why? Because Israel would not and did not. It was turned over to the Christians to do it and they did, in the beginning, then as soon as the governing powers of this world adopted Christianity as the state religion that came to an end and like the Jews they found ways to deny His Name by ignoring it, or replacing it. It is a certainty that the "Adversary" (Satan) as the "god of this world" (2 Cor 4:4) clouded the minds in this project of covering up and hiding His Holy Name, and the Name by which we must all be saved (Acts 4:12).

The letters the scribes copied have their counterpart in the English letters, YHWH. They, the Israelite scribes and priests, mistakenly decided not to say, or pronounce it, (The Name) making "The Name" of the Mighty God of no use, they profaned the name. It is the Christians that have done the most damage to the Sacred Name, for they have used substitution, they have, in the wisdom of man, helped the Jew to profane (treat as useless, show contempt, discard -- Strong's #2490, to bore, to wound, to dissolve) the name. The Jews were accused of profaning the Holy Name, yet they did not remove it from their writings (Ezekiel 36:20-24), but the Christians did. Please read the scripture just given, it is a real eye opener, not only for what has happened then and now but also for what is going to happen prophetically. The possessor of the Holy Name is going to do what, and for what? Read right on through to verse 38. This has not happened yet, but it will, and then, He declares "... they will know that I am YHWH (YaHWeH)".

Back to Joshua, or rather, Yoshua of the Old Testament, he was a type of Christ (Messiah), leading his people into the Kingdom. In Zechariah 6:11-13 we see another "Joshua", the "High Priest" being crowned as a "king" -- not just a King but a "King Priest" and his name is "Yoshua", or better still, "YaHshua", the same name given to our Savior at birth. The High Priest, Yahshua, is an example of a type of Christ bearing the name of the Savior, a King Priest just as our Savior. These verses are recognized, by virtually everyone, as a prophetic example in reference to the coming of the Messiah as our King Priest, the two offices being held by the one, YaHshua.

You have to ask, why is this error allowed? Why haven't the translators corrected this gross injustice? Why is the bogus name "Jesus" allowed to continue in this fraud? If there were no Devil nor any demons, false spirits, false guides, God-haters, and wolves in sheep's clothing then I would truly be puzzled, as the work of translating the scriptures into languages of the people is a work of tremendous scope, requiring a great degree of skill and dedication. It must also be assumed that many, if not all, that accept this task are truly dedicated to the words they translate, to the books and bibles they produce, and it is hard to believe that these scholars deliberately set out to perpetrate this fraud. Considering Satan, that old Devil and the craftiness this angelic being possesses one can almost see him using the intellect of man's reasoning to justify something that is not correct, that is in error, that is a fraud but .... but, from an intellectual point of view, well, a rose by any other name is still a rose, isn't it? Satan does not have the power to make you do anything, but he can persuade, reason, give you arguments that sound good. He has had lots of practice at getting man (men and women) to be clever in their thinking, not accepting the sure words and directions of a Higher power. No, Satan helps man become smarter, more intellectual, understanding everything but the Holy Bible. We have the choice, just as Eve did in the Garden, just as Adam did. There is no name mentioned, or written, more than the Holy Name of the Living God in the pages of scripture, yet in our translations it is invisible. How the Devil must grin. I pray that the Mighty God of Heaven, our Father, and our Savior, Yahshua, will rebuke him for this, and we will get to witness the Name of the Living God being made great among the nations. Actually, that is in the prophetic word.

(Zep 3:9)  For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the Name of YaHWeH, to serve Him with one consent.

We, the Believers, are on the brink of prophecy being fulfilled, or at least we are on the threshold of seeing something come about that is most definitely the work of the Living Creator God. No, I don't mean anything you or I, or any particular organization is doing. God has allowed His name to be hidden, and he has allowed the Savior's name to be twisted out of shape and into a different from. He is The Living Creator God, YHWH, and He could have forced the proper use of His Holy identity onto everyone, but then He would not have had reason to make His Name greater, over and above all other names, as He did when He delivered the Israelis out of the hands of the Egyptians. A time is coming when His true identity will be accepted and mis-used.

Matthew 24:4 And  YaHshua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am Christ (The Anointed); and shall deceive many.

We are seeing the beginnings of this today. The birth name of our Savior is cropping up in more and more sermons and teachings. So, take warning, know your Bible, for there will be many deceivers going to the name and using it to convince you that they are the ones, they are the prophets, they are the chosen of the true Elohim -- and they will be wrong!

Revelation 3:8-9 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and have not denied My Name.  Behold, I will make them of the synagogue (church) of Satan, which say they are Jews (Israelis), and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

You see many groups today in the Sacred Names Movement (so called) attempting to restore Jewish Law (Torah), the Laws of Moses, as our Savior called them, for that is what they evolved into (John 7:23). You will notice throughout the New Testament we see reference to what Moses wrote and about how the Jews trusted in Moses (Luke 24:44). Today we have groups trying to resurrect the Old Covenant, calling it a "restoration", claiming to be Jews, or the real Israel, either by blood or by actions. Be careful when communicating with any of these groups. In their self-righteousness they are convinced, but in reality they continually crucify our Savior by the attempts to restore, in their lives and others, the Old Covenant -- by this mission they are actually putting YaHshua on the Cross over and over again.  The Old Covenant is present for us to study and learn from, it is not dead or abolished, but it has been Changed, and that Change leads us into the New Covenant.  This is hard for some to accept, the Old Covenant is OLD and has passed away, making room for the New Covenant.

(Heb 7:12) For the priesthood being changed, there is of necessity a change made also in the Law.

Now read the following carefully, and you will see why some of these Hebrew Roots groups do not like the Apostle Paul:

New Covenant
(2Co 3:6-8) ... who also made us sufficient as servants of a New Covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. But if the service of death, written engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the children of Israel could not look steadfastly on the face of Moses for the glory of his face; which was passing away:  won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory?
(2Co 3:9-13) For if the service of condemnation has glory, the service of righteousness exceeds much more in glory.  For most certainly that which has been made glorious has not been made glorious in this respect, by reason of the glory that surpasses.  For if that which passes away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness of speech, and not as Moses, who put a veil on his face, that the children of Israel wouldn't look steadfastly on the end of that which was passing away.
(2Co 3:14-18) But their minds were hardened, for until this very day at the reading of the Old Covenant the same veil remains, because in the messiah it passes away.  But to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. But whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord, the Spirit.

The truth seeker, the true believer is stuck -- the Christians have a religion based on pagan theology and traditions, while those seeming to understand the importance of the birth Name of our Savior are attempting to do something reserved for our Creator, restore the Old Covenant. These groups are not trying to become more Jewish in order to convince real Jews, or Israelis of their need for the Messiah. They are not being all things to all men for the sake of Yahshua, no they do this for their own natural gratification. The followers of these men that will stand before Yahshua and claim to have done great things in His name will be shunned by out Lord, YaHshua. One last thing on this; virtually all of these groups fail to properly identify our heavenly Father, the one whom Yahshua came to reveal. You cannot have one without the other. The Father and the Son are one, and as they are one, YaHshua prayed that we be one with them. So, what is the Father's name? They do not know, they think they know and they will give you a name but it is not correct, at least not totally. It is not for me to tell you, as this is a job for our Savior, He says He will make the father's Name known to those given to Him (Hebrews 2:12, John 17:25)

When He turns this around, when His name becomes great among the Nations, when the Gentiles call on His name it will not be because of the works of the hands of man, it will be in spite of them (Ex 9:16, Mal 1:11 & John 4:22-24). The bibles men produce have the message and that message most definitely points toward the Creator God , Yahshua, and the Heavenly Father, and these bible translations are good for our correction and instruction. The message of this book, has never been the work of men, only the paper and the printing, the physical construction. Our Heavenly Father has allowed Satan to influence the intellect of these men and women in an attempt to divert the message away from its true author, but all of this is being corrected, and all of this is toward the Father's purpose. The message remains in tact, no matter how men, and Satan try to mess with it. The Holy Spirit of the God of Heaven is on the move in this direction. People, and believers of the word, are going to find out what Alleluia, or Hallelujah in their songs, and in the Book of Revelations (19:3-4), really means. For starters, "Halleluyah", means, "Praise you YaH", not "praise the Lord". It is "Hallelu-YH".

In Defense of Scholars?
I should add one thing here; I do not mean to intimate that the work of the scholars, translating the bible into different languages, are evil, at least not anymore than any of the rest of us, but only that somewhere along the way Satan used what appeared to be good reasoning and logic, feeding man's wisdom, in order to profane the use, or lack there-of, the Creator's Holy Name. This has been a process that Satan has had in the works from the beginning. He quoted the Creator's words to Eve, and used some good old fashion reasoning to help Eve come to the wrong conclusion. Eve took the fruit tasted it, turned to Adam, standing beside her, gave him some and they did eat. Contrary to what some teach, Adam was right there next to Eve when this intellectual discussion took place and he too convinced himself of the wisdom of their action's sounded good to him too, beside, I imagine he imagined, 'I can always blame it on Eve'.  There is another thing here, we see the woman, taking the lead, listening to the lie and later we are told why women are not allowed in certain positions -- because it was Eve that was deceived.  What is interesting and what really led to the sin to be passed on, like some kind of DNA code change, comes through Adam, because he was not deceived, at least the woman had a good excuse, she was deceived (1 Tim 2:14).  

I know that the men and women working on a project as great as that of biblical translations are dedicated, devote, and very serious about what they do, but they have no good reason for keeping the Holy name out of print. They do have a "reason", however, and do you know what it is? Well, it is because it has been done that way all along. That, my friends, is the "reason". There is no scholarship, or great study, or mathematical method that determines the exclusion of the Holy Name from the modern (including the KJV) translations, only that it has been done that way before and what was acceptable then must be now. Oh, yes, there is that one other thing; true pronunciation cannot be known, some say. Most scholars have abandoned that argument, however, as they know better.

Quote: Unger's Bible Dictionary, page 1177, Yahweh (ya we). The Hebrew tetragrammaton (YHWH) traditionally pronounced Jehovah is now known to be correctly vocalized Yahweh. New inscriptional evidence from the second and first millennia B. C. point toward this fact.

You see, pride, and ego, enter in here. To admit so large an error is hard to do, especially after letting it go for so long, Unger managed to confess, but went no further with this revelation. There is absolutely nothing scholarly about their approach to the Holy Name and its treatment in the pages of the translations they prepare for public consumption. They, the Christian scholar, has done the Hebrew scribes one better. Instead of keeping the Sacred Name out from in front of the reader they have replaced it all together under the guise of "tradition". The Jews excuse is handed down as treating the Name with such respect as to never say it. A Name too sacred to pronounce -- misguided holiness, leading to profaning His Holy Name (Profane, make useless, destroy). What is the excuse of the modern day bible scholar? Truly, they have none.

Pagan holy days (holidays) and customs run rampant through the Christian community, so, perhaps it is only fitting they call on, or use names more closely connected to pagan gods of old. My friends, there is some serious research suggesting the name "Jesus" is connected to the infamous 666. Try this test, pull the vowels from the name Jesus and you have, Jss, or Iss. Now, pronounce it. Did you know that the number for the Egyptian goddess Isis was 666? I have yet to do a detailed study on this myself but for those who want to follow this connection, you can go to the work of E. W. Bullinger, in his book, Numbers in Scripture, and in the foot note found on page 49.

We see the Savior's name, and that of the Father, being referred to more and more among the Christian programs you see on TV. They, of course, continue to tie the bogus name "Jesus" to the Holy name. Sometimes a preacher will use both names in the same breath, Yahshua, or Jesus. JESUS IS NOT HIS NAME AND IT NEVER WAS! Look, take the name Joshua, found in the Old Testament, restore the Yod character for the "J", as it should be and you have Yoshua, or Yah-shua, which is really on the money in the pronunciation of our Savior's birth Name. I know, I know, I have said all of this before, but can it be said enough?

And don't come at me with the business of how so many people have been helped in the name of "JESUS". Listen friend, even worshipers of the devils and demons perform miracles. You can talk to just as many pagans, and to pagan converts (a lot of white Americans seem to be turned onto some of these pagan religions, especially those originating in the East) about lives being changed. Take a look at Scientology, a religion based on Science Fiction writings and imaginations of Ron L. Hubbard, if you want to see some high profile proponents of life changing experiences. Look into this for yourselves and you will see the appeal to intellectual vanity but in the end, when the ultimate truth they teach is unveiled, it is as ridiculous as little green men from space controlling our president, or that man is god, or that man comes from volcanoes. This false religion, Scientology, seems intellectual on the surface but deep in its core, in the guts of its mystery teachings is a bazaar tale of origins and future that only a science fiction writer could dream up and make into a religion. Beware of the religions of this world, nearly all of them have a base line that can be traced back to the original religion of Babylon -- Believe it or not.

Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.

Some have good arguments for having found a more righteous path than what they have seen and experienced in the Christian community. The Christian community has been mixing pagan worship with the worship of the Creator God for hundreds of years, and as mentioned previously, these religious practices can easily be traced right back to Babylon itself. There are Christians that practice the mixing of Eastern religious theology, superstition and myth into their worship. Taking bits and pieces from other pagan religions as life style changes searching for a physically pleasing religious experience, looking for that "righteousness" in their life. This is a gross mistake the Israelis got caught up in themselves. Read the Old Testament and see what happened to them. Think we are any different? Maybe we are better, yeah, right? Read 2 Kings 23, see how Josiah (Yosyah, or Yahshua), the king of Israel, removed pagan idols and objects of worship from the temple (church building of Israel). Read how religious the people had become. They had religion, lots of religion, and mixed it with the worship of Yahweh. They had become so religious in their worship of false gods, every kind of god, that the true God became lost in their knowledge, until a book, gathering dust in the Temple, was discovered and delivered to the King. This book of ancient writing had been misplaced, hidden, and then was found and the King command it be read to him. He was struck to the heart at how far the people had drifted from the One True God, YHWH, and so he sat out to make things right, he wrecked the false religions that had invaded his country, his people. When our King, YaHshua, comes He will do the same, beginning at Jerusalem. There is a revival coming but not like men envision. YaHshua, not Jesus, is going to restore Israel, a greater Israel, from river to river and all the nations will come to the King during the Feast of Week and pay tribute and those that refuse will not receive weather conducive to healthy crops and a healthy people.

Read Zechariah 14 and ask yourself these questions: Who is it that is standing on Mount Olives? Where is this battle against the nations taking place? Whose flesh is consumed away? What is the Feast of Tabernacles? Who is it that will be required to come up year after year for this Feast? What is it YHWH (the LORD, YaHshua) promises to do to those of Egypt and heathens of the world, if they do not come up at that time?

(Zec 14:4)  And His feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

(Rev 14:1) I saw, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him a number, one hundred forty-four thousand, having His Name, and the Name of His FATHER, written on their foreheads.

(Zec 14:12) This will be the plague with which YaHWeH will strike all the peoples who have warred against Jerusalem (YaHshalayim): their flesh will consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will consume away in their sockets, and their tongue will consume away in their mouth.

(Zec 14:16) It will happen that everyone who is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem (YaHshalayim) will go up from year to year to worship the King, YaHWeH of Armies, and to keep the feast of tents.  (The Feast of Tabernacles)
(Zec 14:17) It will be, that whoever of all the families of the earth doesn't go up to Jerusalem (YaHshalayim) to worship the King, YaHWeH of Armies, on them there will be no rain.

There is a promise of a drought plague, not only against all Egypt but against all the heathen nations refusing to come up for the Feast of Tabernacles. It is Zechariah 14 where we see the identity of YHWH as YaHshua, not Jesus.

How the deception works
I will take a quote from a popular Bible Dictionary as an example of just what the Believer and the truth seeker is up against.
Quoting Again From Unger's Bible Dictionary, page 581, The Personal Name of our Lord was Jesus, which signifies Saviour. It is carefully accented by repetitions in the record as being highly important.

This reference goes on to give the various accounts of how the messenger angel, Gabriel, gave the name "jesus" to both Mary and Joseph to name our Savior. I covered this with some reasonable logic in previous statements found in this article already so I won't go over this error again, you know, beating a dead horse and all that. Let us focus, instead, upon this highly esteemed work as a representation, not just of Merrill F. Unger, but of the whole of biblical scholarship surrounding the perpetuation of this error -- every resource you check will push this lie as if it is true, some may even witness against themselves but still sell the false name, JESUS. You have just read the above quote, now lets use the same reference to prove this error in scholarship, as we see a typical witness against their own scholarship.

Quote: Unger's Bible Dictionary, page 609, Joshua. Name (Heb. Yehoshua, Jehovah is salvation).

We don't really need to go any further. You see the name, Joshua, the name of the assistant and successor of Moses, and this is the very same name given to YaHshua (Joshua) at his birth. If His birth name is found in the Old Testament then why is it not found, or better yet, why is it replaced in the New Testament? From the same book I retrieved information about how the pronunciation of the name YHWH has not been lost, from the same book that makes the flat statement that the God of Israel, YHWH, was not known to any other people on the face of the earth (page1177) we have this glaring view of name substitution, Jesus for YaHshua (Joshua). It is not just with Unger's Bible Dictionary, a reference I like and use, but it virtually all other bible dictionaries as well.

Here is another example of a recognized Bible Dictionary and its handling of the Name or our Savior:
Quote: Holman Bible Dictionary, page 775, "JESUS CHRIST Greek form of Joshua and the title meaning, "Yahweh is salvation", and "the anointed one" or "Messiah". Proper name of the Savior of the world".

Incredible, the admission and denial all in the same breath. Following this same reference work, on page 816 we see the definition for the name, Joshua --  "Yahweh delivered". We see defined, Yahweh is savior, or salvation. Under this heading Holman's Dictionary gives the account that Joshua is the ''unsung hero" of the Old Testament having, as he, not Moses, led the chosen people into the promised Land -- into the Kingdom of God.  See any parallels here? Certainly, the forerunner of the Joshua, or YaHshua, to come, the real YaH-shua. Joshua of the OT is, as we see, a type of Messiah, and, as a type of the coming YaHshua who will lead the people of God into the future Kingdom, or Government of God. So, why, in the New Testament, the Greek Scriptures, is the name, Joshua, changed to Jesus? Listen, my friends, the name Jesus is not even Greek. the name Jesus is a made up name, a twisting of the original Greek, to Latin, to English then again to a different English and then English/American, to the point of being a different name far removed form the Name given to our Savior, a Name the Apostles taught, a Name "... by which all must be save..."

More Logic -- More Truth Dividing
Someone said, "They spoke Aramaic in the days the Messiah walked in the flesh". And that may well be true, or some blending of Aramaic and orginal Hebrew, but it certainly wasn't Greek. How do you say the Savior's Name in Aramaic? Simple, it is the same as in Hebrew, YaHshua, certainly not Jesus.

Let's assume the language of the Hebrews was lost. Looking in Harper's Bible Dictionary we see the Aramaic name for Yahshua (Joshua) to be "Jeshua", or "Yeshua" and the meaning is the same, "Yahweh is salvation", you can find this on page 474. We see this variant among the Christian teachers using the name "Yehshua" in almost the same breath with Jesus. This form is becoming ever more popular among the teachers of Jesus as savior -- they pray, "In the name Jesus Yeshua ...". So, is it Yahshua, or Yeshua? It is YH-shua - the pronunciation of YH can be either with the "e" or the "a". In my research I have discovered the name pronounced with the "e" from an ancient Babylonian source held in the British museum. What is interesting is that the "e" is a long "e" like "ee" and as such actually makes a similar, if not identical, sound of an "a". Neither letter, however, belongs to the name, as YHWH stands on its own so does the name of YH-shua. YHWH is seen as pronounced, YaHWeH and YH-shua as YaHshua. The sacred name of our Creator certainly leaves room for accents and YeHWeH or YaHWeH would be where these similar pronunciation fall. As a transliterations goes you could pronounce His Name as, EEaShua, but this would not leave any relevant Hebrew/Jewish lettering connection with the original and earliest known Name of our Creator in what is called, Paleo (Ancient) Hebrew.

The Yeshua or YaHshua Question?
One more thing to consider: In the name Yeshua, a name, by the way, the Jewish scholars prefer and admit to, leaves one very important element out, the "H" -- dropping half of the name drops the our Heavenly Father from the Name of Salvation. By dropping the "H" from the name is the same as leaving the Father out of His union with our Savior. Yeshua is only half the Name and this error is fine with the Jewish scholars -- keeping the Sacred Name out of the Gentiles hands, or mouths. I have been challenged by a couple of Hebrew scholars and they are sincere men, not trying to keep a secret, being deceived themselves, refusing to see the Name YaHshua in the Old Testament, forget the NT, remember, they are Jews and do not recognize the NT as Scripture -- forgetting for the moment that the various Jewish factions argue over what is or is not Scripture. The Hebrew does have the Name YaHshua, but it appears as YaHushua and for the sake of one letter they refuse to see the truth. You see, as mentioned before, the last part of the name is a statement of fact, the first part of the Name is the undefinable mention, or identity of the Creator God of all the Heavens and this lowly planet we live on. So, it is YH - shua, or YH - u- shua, either way, the Name YaHshua is found in the OT. YH is Savior, YH is Salvation, YaHshua is in the OT every time YHWH is mention as our savior or our salvation.

If you prefer the use of the "e" in your view of His Name then you should spell it and see it as YeHshua, not Yeshua. See how it changes and is corrected? The name, Yeshua, is not complete and it is not a short form either, it is not correct and is not complete. Simple example: My name is DaN, you can still pronounce it if I drop the vowel, DN, but if I drop the N then you are left with D and that changes things. I must admit, the Y, pronounced by itself is pretty close to the actual pronunciation of YH, like a breath of air, a wind blast, a perfect name and possibly the first sound Adam heard as his Creator breathed the breathe of life into him.

I pray for our Heavenly Father to forgive us our ignorance, and thank Him for His immense patience. Thank you YaHshua, for it is in your Name we find our salvation and claim our gift of eternal life. Praise you YH, which is to say, HalleluYaH.

All Hail Zeus, Healer, Savior, Pagan god, Dead god
The following is from a different web site. I include it here as something of interest and something to consider. The critics in defense of the false name, JESUS, continually charge that linking the name JESUS with the Greek/Roman god Zues is unfounded. I have mentioned in past articles that there is no direct connection but the coincidence is remarkable, and, as mentioned before, no mistake. With this information and study from the web site quoted below it seems to be making a connection and seems to me, a valid comparison and connection is made.
Please keep in mind, I do not support this web site and find some of their teachings off track. You can check them out but with caution. Always keep your spiritual guard up.

The ZUES connection
What is the Real name of the Messiah
Iesous = Hail Zues
Jesus = Hail Zues
Source - Dictionary of Christian Lore and Ledgend
The name of Jesus is a 400 year old name approximately, because the English language never had the letter "J" till then.

This is very important, because it says in the Bible by one name only shall you be saved. So it becomes frightfully important. Because it is a recent name not known by THE ALMIGHTY.
In fact the Original King James Bible had the name Iesus inside. This is also a historical record of the fact the name Jesus is a very modern name in terms of history.

Then on the flip side of the subject, we have the Greek god Zeus who is a representation
of The Sun god who is The Devil as known by ancient cultures.

Here below is some information on the subject, but take into account no name beginning with the letter "J" can be attributed to

So the name Jehovah cannot be the name of THE ALMIGHTY of Jeshua.

We have a clue to THE NAME OF THE ALMIGHTY, from the scripture and the word Hallelujah=HALLELUYAH which means Praise YAH, so YAH is his name.
So what was the name of THE MESSIAH
Yashua, Yesu, or YAHSHUA even because he came in his fathers name.
I'm not sure of THE MESSIAH's name but I am sure YAH would have been who the people in the old Testament prayed too and THE MESSIAH himself.

Personally I pray to YAH in the name of your son YAHSHUA.
Please read following information it's very interesting.

not only is it NOT the sanctified given name
of Yeshua (Jehoshua) but prophetic and
sanctified unity within the Word of YHWH is lost!
Early Christo-Pagans syncretized Greek culture
into Greek Christianity, which "smoothed" the
way for Christo-Paganism to become the
"state" religion."
-Is the name "Jesus" holy?
Baruch Ben Daniel

"They (the Graeco-Roman World) had
worshipped Zeus as the supreme deity.
Their savior was Zeus, so now they
were ready to accept Jehoshua as Jesus
- Iesous, meaning - hail Zeus. Now our
translated scriptures say that Jahwah's
(Jehovah's)Son's name is Jesus, which is
a compound word made up of Ie and Zeus
(Hail Zeus)."
-The Origin of Christianity
by A.B. Traina

"This name of the true Messiah,
Jahshuwah (Jehoshua), being Hebrew,
was objectionable to the Greeks and
Romans, who hated the Judeans (Jews),
and so it was deleted from the records,
and a new name inserted. Jahshuwah
(Jehoshua) was thus replaced by Ie-Sous
(hail Zeus), now known to us as Jesus."
-The Origin of Christianity
by A.B. Traina

"It is simply amazing to think that all
these years, hundreds of years, mankind
has been calling the Saviour by the wrong name!!
It's hard to give up the name of Jesus
because it's so deeply ingrained in us
and much has been said and done in that name."

Some scholars think that Jesus name was
corrupted by the early Roman Apostasy -
in order to make his name look more Graeco -
Roman rather than "Jewish".

After the Apostles and Jesus had been
removed from the Jewish scene - Rome took
over the Christian Faith and attempted to
Mould and conform it to her own Graeco-Roman
heritage and Flavour.

Zeus was one of the most popular gods at
that time. And conjecture has it that perhaps
Jesus name was changed to please the pagans
in the empire - who were reluctant to accept
the New Faith - of the Roman Emperor.

"It is known that the Greek name
endings with sus, seus, and sous
were attached by the Greeks to names
and geographical areas as means to
give honour to their supreme deity, Zeus."

Professor J. C. J. Metford

"In the 1611 KJ New Testament
the name Yahshua (Yehoshua) appeared
originally wherever the Messiah was
spoken of. Yehoshua means Yehovah's
(Jehovah's) Salvation. Later the
Messiah's name was replaced with Iesus
(Greek) which later in the 1600's it
became Jesus starting with the new
English letter "J" which was introduced
at that time. Further, the Greek "Iesus"
comes from the name Zeus, the ruling God
in the Greek pantheon."

Tarsus means Sweat of Zeus ...
Dionysus means the Son of Zeus ...
"IESOUS" is Greek
For Jesus
meaning -- "Hail Zeus"
"Some authorities, who have spent their entire
lives studying the origins of names believe

that "Jesus" actually means - "Hail Zeus!"
For Iesous in Greek IS "Hail Zeus."
"Ie" translates as "Hail" and "sous"
or "sus" translates as Zeus. The English
name "Jesus", therefore, stems etymologically
from "Jupiter-Zeus" the chief god of the
ancient Greek Olympus."
-"Yeshua" or "Jesus" -- Which?
Biblical Research Institute; 1996
by Les Aron Gosling

"‘Jesus’ is a transliteration of a Latin
name Ioesus, pronounced heysus -
which means nothing in Hebrew,
but in Latin it means ‘Hail Zeus’.
If Yahshua’s name had been
transliterated into our language,
it would have been closer to Joshua
(or Jehoshua).."

by C. J. Koster
"Jesus. That was a name given to him
by the early church many years after
His death. They wanted to remove any
Jewishness from the new church.
They eliminated His Jewish name and
blended the name of Zeus into the
Christian church to make it comfortable
for all those who previously worshipped
the Greek and Roman gods. It made it
easier for the pagans to become Christians.
Since Zeus was the top god of their experience,
attaching the name Ioesus to Yahshua gave
Him top priority in the worship hierarchy."

"The Hebrews called their coming Savior,
the Messiah, Jahshuawah. The disciples of
the Savior accepted Him as such, and to them
He was also known as Jahshuwah the Messiah.
The Greeks, however, rejected the Hebrew name,
and called Him (IESOUS-Jesus) instead."

"The plan of the Greeks was simple,
they merely dropped the Hebrew terminology
of names which referred to the Hebrew deity,
and substituted the name, or letters, referring
to the name of the supreme deity, Zeus."

"It has been all along well enough known
that the Greeks occasionally worshipped the

The time of ignorance is over.
It is time to return to using the rightful Hebrew
Name of Christ - "Jehoshua"

Toss away your excuses for hanging onto
the J-Zeus error. Jehovah God is determined
that all those requesting salvation from Christ,
must address him in an honourable way.
This is a legitimate and mandatory decree
by Jehovah God Himself. Even Christ will
no longer permit his name to be dishonoured.
Take heed - it is a sure requirement - and will
be evident when Christ is revealed to mankind
in the very near future.

"The only Savior in the Scripture is Jahshuwah,
(or Jehoshua) - the Son of Jahwah (Jehovah).
He came in His Father's Name and by that we
must adore Him. Away with the pagan name
Iesous. Away with his heathen name Jesus,
and instead exalt the Savior, Jahshuwah (Jehoshua)
- the Son of Jahwah (Jehovah), by His own name."

The Messiah's True Name
"Originally, the name of the Messiah
was , pronounced Yahushua
or (Yehoshua). This is the Messiah's
original name. ...the Messiah's name
is actually the same name as Joshua,
Son of Nun... correctly pronounced
"Yahushua". It is quite evident that
the modern form "Jesus" doesn't even
remotely resemble the original name
that the disciples used.. This is a fact. "
"Jesus Christ....Matthew (1:21) interprets
the name originally as Jehoshua, that is,
'Jehovah is Salvation,'"
-Encyclopedia Americana
(Vol.16, p. 41)
"the name of Christ in the New Testament
means “Jehovah is salvation.” This comes
from the same Hebrew word translated Joshua
or Jehoshua in the Old Testament. It also
means “Jehovah is salvation.” This means
that the name of Jesus should have been
translated into English as “Joshua (or Jehoshua)” "
-Jesus and Joshua Had the Same Hebrew Name *
The Name Of Jesus;
By Paul Rusnak
"Christ name....In the Septuagint it was the
common Hebrew name Joshua (or Jehoshua)."
-Encyclopedia Britannica - 15th Edition
(Vol. 10 p.149)
"The name Joshua (or Jehoshua) derives
its greatest importance and highest sanctity
from the fact that it was sacredly chosen
as the name to be borne by the Messiah.."

Fulfilling Bible Prophecy
Joel 2:32: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of YAH shall be delivered....
Act 2:(16,17,21) but this is that which hath been spoken by the prophet Joel;
.... in the last days, saith THE ALMIGHTY that whosoever shall call on the name of the YAH shall be saved.
Romans 10:13 for, Whosoever shall call upon the name YAH shall be saved.
Acts 4:10,12: be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Yahshua Hamashia of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom YAH raised from the dead....And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, wherein we must be saved.

All the above scriptures will be
fulfilled - only in the name of
"Yahshua". Since
Yahovah's name is embedded in
The Messiah's name - One can call
upon the Messiah - and still be
calling upon Yahovah's name as well.
"The only Savior in the Scripture
is Jahshuwah, the Son of Jahwah (Jehovah).
He came in His Father's Name and by that we
must adore Him. Away with the pagan name
Iesous. Away with his heathen name Jesus,
and instead exalt the Savior, Jahshuwah,
the Son of Jahwah (Jehovah), by His own name."

Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the YAH:
we have blessed you out of the house of the YAH.
Matthew 21:9: And the multitudes that went before him, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the YAH; Hosanna in the highest.
Matthew 21:9 is very interesting because of the word Hosanna it is a Greek word and I got the meaning from strong's. Definition: an exclamation of adoration: - hosanna.
Hosanna is a translation of the Hebrew word yâsha is means to save or salvation.
Listen to how Hosanna sounded in Hebrew by passing you mouse over the underlined word
The word YAHSHUA means YAH is salvation.
The word Hosanna means to save or salvation.
But when it was spoken back then
it sounded a lot like YAHSHUA.
To me it sounds like Jasher or Yasher.
But if you really listen it's Yahsher.
Roll the mouse over it one more time.
"the Hebrew name.....Jehoshua,
means 'Jehovah is Salvation'. "
-The Catholic Encyclopedia
Vol. 8, p. 374
Not only is the name of Jesus the same as Zeus but also the image.
can this be just coincidence?

The Messiah say's
Matthew 23:39: For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the YAH.
Luke 19:38: saying, Blessed is the King that cometh in the name of the YAH:
John 12:12: On the morrow a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Yahshua was coming to Jerusalem,
John 12:13: took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried out, Hosanna: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the YAH, even the King of Israel.
John 5:43: I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
