Jesus, The Name
Q: Jesus is His Name?
I read that article, I understand His Name is important. you did not explain however, where did "Jesus" come from, why is wrong, why did The Apostles themselves translate His Name in Greek in The Original Scriptures, and why The Name Jesus delivers from demons, addictions, evils, strongholds, etc. please provide explanations if you are going to write an article, I see you are not a deceived, but one cannot help but see their is a bias in your article, without properly proving your "arguments" you only quoted a few verses and dodged the meat of the question: Why did they write ANOTHER name that Yahshua in Greek (this usually destroys your false rhetoric about names). be humble man, and explain yourself right, or you just cause confusion among the brethren
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

You have several questions here, all important and I will answer as best I can.
First: Where did the name JESUS come from? It came from the Latin, not the Greek. The original Latin name, that the King James Translators used was IESVS, the very name the Latin Church, or Roman Churched used. Later in a revision of the KJV this Latin name was changed to JESUS. The proof of this is found in the 1611 KJV translation itself. This first version is readily available in print and on line and in that first version you will see that name used throughout. Please notice that in your own presentation the quote from Strong's G2424 that this does not prove your point but prove mine. Notice that it suggests that the name JESUS is the Greek form of JOSHUA, and this simply is not true. JESUS is the Latin form for the name Zeus, and proof is that at least a third of the world pronounces JESUS as Heydays. It is the English and Americanized pronunciation that turns this call to Zeus as GeeZus, a name totally alien to our Lord, YaHshua (JOSHUA). As yourself, why would the translators use a different name if they already had His Name in the Hebrew? The Have the Old English as JOSHUA, yet they go with the change into a completely different name, JESUS? Think about it.
Second: Why did the Apostles translate His Name into Greek in the original scriptures? Again, this is not correct. For one thing, the original authors, that would be letters and manuscripts, have been lost to time. All we have are copies made or preserved by others. This Idea that the Greek is some kind of Holy and Inspired language is nonsense. The translating of the original letters into other languages does not mean the Apostles changed His Name, they would never have done that, and for good reason. Our Savior said that He came in the Father's Name, and the Father's Name was not and is not JESUS. Our Savior also prophesied that another name would appear and that name people would follow while rejecting Him.
(John 5:43) I am come in my Father's name, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.
Third: A proof that the name Jesus is correct is because of all the miracles and healings, etc. done successfully in this name? On the surface this seems like good reasoning, but is flawed. There are other religions, religions of demons and devils and others and all make this very same claim. No, I am not saying anything against the Holy Spirit. No, I am not saying that all of these healings and answers to prayers is of the devil. Here me out, and if you have ears to hear, then listen. The miraculous healings and answers to prayer, no matter the religion, is by FAITH -- the LAW of FAITH. Our Lord revealed this truth but few hear it and only hear what they want to hear, depending upon which religion they are professing. Like the miracle of Rain, something our Creator put in place as a blessing for the whole Earth, not just the few, but for the good and the bad alike. This is one of the first demonstrations of His love and kindness and patience toward mankind. Like the miracle of Rain, so is the miracle of Faith. Faith is a benefit to all mankind. If it is used as a proof for who and who is not on the right path then we would have accept the miracles and the prayers answered in other religions from the pagan gods they pray to as equal to those of the Christians and this then, make this not a proof at all -- a blessing to be sure, but not a proof. In one case a woman touched the Messiah and was immediately healed, and what did our Messiah say? He turned to the woman and told her that it was her Faith that healed her.
(Mat 9:22) But Jesus turned him about, and when He saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
(Mat 9:29) Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
(Mat 15:28) Then YaHshua answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
The unusual thing about the Healings under YaHshua is His ability, His authority to forgive sin. Some health issues are due to our sin, not as punishment but as a condition and sometimes it takes this forgiveness and then to follow the instruction to go and sin no more.
(Mar 2:5) When YaHshua saw their faith, He said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.
(John 5:13-14) The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for YaHshua had slipped away into the crowd that was there. Later YaHshua found him at the temple and said to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you."
Fourth: Stop the confusion, man? Okay, I can take the criticism and rightly so if the reader is only reading part of what I have shared and have to share with other brothers and sisters. I have written many back up articles and studies on this very thing. I make mention and expand upon these and other observation in the Word of Truth throughout the Website -- All you have to do is look up the studies. There is a problem, of course, in my not making a link to every article or study I have done, within an a study, pointing to this other and more detailed studies and articles. I see that, and upon that I see the criticism is justified. On the other hand, it is not for me to do all of the work for you. If you see I have said something that is unfamiliar then break open the book and prove it or disprove it for yourself. Final arguement you make is not about the context or content, it is about my sloppiness, in your view, and I accept that, but it is your duty to not use that as an excuse to ignore the Truth I have presented to you. Is His Name JESUS, or Not? Was He born and named JESUS? NO, and NO. He was born, JOSHUA, according to the Old English transliteration of His Name, which is transliterated YaHshua in modern English from the Hebrew to the Greek. The False name JESUS is a transliteration from the Latin, and the Latin is NOT from the Greek, it is a misapplication for the name of Zeus, a Greek God, for our Savior's Holy Name, a Name that contians His and our Heavenly Father's Name.
I admit, I am a sloppy writer, and careless as not being educated in the Letters or schools of Higher education -- I confess to my lack of education but not to presenting the Truth of His Word. Do I confuse things by telling you and others that you are calling on, and confession to and in the Wrong Name? It may confuse you and others because you have been following along the false teaching in a blind manner, ignoring the warning in the Word. I the word tells us that there is no other name in all of the Earth by which we must be saved, then it should be a believers primary concern to make sure they are making confession and testimony in the Name and no other. It does not take a great deal of research to find out the truth in this matter. What is hard is to believe you or others have been so blind to this and that the leaders in the Churches continue this falsehood as if it is true. It is hard for the human spirit, once deceived to admit it and make the correction. No, the confusion has already been made, beginning some 2,000 years ago and progressing down to now. The bogus name JESUS came into existence about 400 years ago, and before that it was IESVS, and before that, in the Greek, Insous -- all different names from the Name JOSHUA, the Name He was Named at Birth. We change JOSHUA to YaHshua because the correct transliteration for the J letter in English has changed in pronunciation. Old English, Joshua. New English, YaHshua, and that name is the name He was Name by His Father in Heaven and men have dared to change it, and laymembers have dared to ignore it. The give this false name, JESUS, great praise and honor and then when confronted with the truth about His Birth Name they fight and kick against it. All of Christianity is in denial.
Still, inspite of all of this, many will see this truth and then, even then, will begin to abuse and misuse this truth just as our Savior said: Many will come in My Name
(Mat 24:5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
(Mar 9:38-39) And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. But YaHshua said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in My Name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
Now, remember, our Lord said these words when everyone knew His personal Name, not the bogus replacement the translators have used. What He says here also make the point mentioned previously -- the law of Faith being used by those who are not really part of His Body. Here is a person casting out devils, of all things, by using His Name and YaHshua says not to stop him. This is another proof that the power of Faith is for all. Again, what is different is that along with this Faith rule, our Lord was also able to forgive sin, and no one on Earth ever had that power or that kind of authority. Even His religious opponents questioned this.
Do you want to know just how important this is? I do not need to go to any other authority than His Word.
