  • 1. Page 1 of 5 THE NAME OF THE MOST HIGH INTRODUCTION The contents of this document are not claimed to be from a highly educated person. But neither were Peter, John and James [for example]. They were three fishermen, part of the twelve chosen apostles, who were many a time the closest to the Mâshîyach during His earthly revelation as the Son of God [Mat.17v1-8]. Their letters in the New Testament of Jesus Christ, which they have written, are just as trustworthy of authority as all the others. Why? They were personal first-hand witnesses of what they saw and heard during their walk with the Mâshîyach and they were also filled with and inspired by the Holy Spirit of God to write what they wrote [Read 1John.1v1-4; 2Tim.3v16; 2Pet.1v20-21]. They had no university degree in theology or divinity. Ps.119v130: “The entrance of Thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding to the simple”. Prov.9v10: “The Fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding”. Since the Mâshîyach revealed Himself personally to me on that Saturday morning, the very early hours before daybreak, the 20th September 1975; He gave me Ps.32v8+9: “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with Mine eye. Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.” And Prov.23v26: “My son, give Me thine heart, and let your eyes observe My ways”. He also brought to my attention, amongst other Scriptures, Prov.4v20-22: “My son, attend to My Words; incline thine ear unto My sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.” And John.14v23: “Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him.” Within the first few years of persistent Scripture study, the Holy Spirit made me understand that, clinging to church doctrines - which do not coincide with the truth of the Word of God – will only bring disappointment, deception, and unstableness of true faith. On the other hand, by proclaiming the truth of the Scriptures exactly what it says may antagonise people, as it did the Pharisees - the congregational leaders of that day - when the Mâshîyach confronted them with the words of His Father [John.12v48-50]. I rather agree with Paul [Sha’ul] according to Gal.1v10: “For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” [Read Gal.1v6-12 attentively]. Thus, I accept Paul’s advice he gave to Timothy - 2Tim.2v15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”. I depend mainly on the Holy Spirit to teach and guide me in the truth of the Scriptures - 1John.2v20,26,27: “But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing that ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teachech you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.” Compare this to John.16v13-15: “Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you in all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto to you. All things that the Father hath are Mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall show it unto you.” The Son of God spoke to the scribes and Pharisees, reprimanding them of caring more about their traditions [which includes their own declared congregational doctrines] than what the Word of God says – Mark.7v7,9,13: “Howbeit in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the
  • 2. Page 2 of 5 commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. Making the Word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” There are so many different church organisations [congregations] in this world, and they all believe that their church is thé church. The most important fact, however, is lost out of sight, and that is that each and every person will be judged before the throne of God solely on the grounds of what is written in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Mat.24v35: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away”. “Earth” includes everything that man has invented and brought into existence, and thus includes all systems, businesses, companies, projects, and even church organisations. Should people / nations / tribes never have a chance to know or hear from the Bible, or never even have a chance to hear about the Son of God as the true Saviour and Redeemer of the world, God will judge them according to Ps.19v1-6; John.16v8-10 and Rom.1v18-32. Where otherwise applicable, people / nations / tribes will be judged according to 2Thes.2v11- 12; 2Tim.3v1-9. The Mâshîyach promised me that if I did my utmost best to obey Him in all my walks of life = keep on resisting sin and evil, keep on repenting when doing wrong, and if I’m willing to read and study His Word diligently and keep it in my heart = He will reveal His truth to me. Ps.119v11: “Thy Word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” Rom.2v11 declares: “For there is no respect of persons with God”. What God does for the king, He will do for the servant as well; He will do for any person whosoever reverently seeks and obeys His will in their everyday lives. Mat.6v33: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things [v25-32] shall be added unto you”. Ps.25v14: “The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant”. Whoever seeks His truth with a pure and obeying heart, will eventually find it. John.8v32,36: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” [Compare this to Jer.29v13; Mat.11v25-27; John.7v37-39; 14v21,23]. Studying the Scriptures of the Holy Bible continuously and persistently, I came upon the Scripture of Jer.33v3: “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not”. And since I’ve included this verse at times in my Bible study prayers, the Mâshîyach has made it possible to obtain and have in my possession many documents and books, relating to Scripture study - always in conjunction with the Holy Scriptures - revealing and making me understand certain things that are not easily found from amongst churches / congregations. One of the Bibles I have in my possession is The Interlinear Bible containing the Old Testament in the Hebrew language [and some Aramaic in the book of Daniel], and the New Testament in the Greek language. This Bible, used in conjunction with Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, contains a numbering system which explains each and every Hebrew and Greek word in the English language. The Interlinear Bible itself also provides an English literal translation in the side column. I’m not educated in the Hebrew or the Greek languages. The translation into the English language provides sufficient understanding of what the Hebrew and Greek languages signify. Comparing all the different Bibles I study with one another, the King James Bible is thé translation which is the nearest to the original manuscripts of the Holy Scriptures [Masoretic manuscripts of the Old Covenant / the TeNaCH of the Jews and the Textus Receptive manuscripts of the New Covenant / the Messianic Scriptures]. Documents, to proof which manuscripts are according to the original and which manuscripts have been corrupted by men, are available for study purposes. All “new translations” of the Bible are mainly translated from corrupted manuscripts; for example, the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus manuscripts.
  • 3. Page 3 of 5 Although the Alexandrian manuscripts are declared as supposed to be the oldest manuscripts, they are proven to be untrustworthy and corrupted as well. In 1947 Jum’a, a shepherd of the Ta’amireh tribe of the nomadic Bedouins, discovered ancient scrolls rolled up in leather and cloth in a cave to the northwest of the Dead Sea in the Qumran Valley. A remarkable archaeological find, the scrolls formed the first part of a collection of Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts that were discovered in quick succession after Jum’a’s original find. These ancient texts, which include the Book of Isaiah in its entirety and fragments from all other books of the Old Testament except for the Book of Esther, turned out to be more than 1,000 years older than any other known Hebrew texts [Douglas Burrows / Liaison Agency]; and they verify the accurateness of the King James Bible. BACKGROUND During the era when the Son of God was born from a virgin / incarnated in the flesh, the Palestinian national language - familiar in that region - was Hebrew / Aramaic. Matthew, Mark and John were born and raised with this mother-tongue language and the possibility that their Gospels were originally written in their national language was very favourable. Notice the Hebrew words retained in Mat.27v46: “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” and especially the Aramaic words retained in the Gospel of Mark.5v41: “Talitha cumi”; .7v43: “Ephphatha”; .14v36: “Abba”; .15v34: “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani”. It will be noted that the Hebrew and Aramaic languages are very closely related to one another. The Son of God spoke in the Hebrew tongue to Paul, when the Mâshîyach revealed Himself to him on the road to Damascus, a language that Paul understood very well. Read Acts.26v14 in this regard. In obedience to the command of the Mâshîyach to spread the Good News of God’s saving grace in and through His Son – Jesus - to al the nations; the Gospels were translated into the Greek tongue, which was the commercial language of that day. The rest of the New Testament manuscripts / letters followed in the Greek tongue. According to the history of the development of the alphabet, the pro-Semitic / northern Semitic alphabet was the oldest and first to be brought into usage with its 22 consonants [during the dispensation of the so-called hieroglyphic and cuneiform writing / characters]. The Semitic alphabet produced one of thé oldest and first language, Aramaic. I personally believe that Aramaic was the language used as the communication medium when God created and taught Adam to speak in the Garden of Eden [Gen.2v7,15- 18], so that when the Creator gave Adam the wonderful privilege to name all the cattle, the fowl of the air, and every beast of the field; Adam made use of Aramaic [Gen.2v19-20]. I further believe that Aramaic was thé most probable one language that the thén one nation knew at the tower of Babel [Gen.11v6], before the Most High scattered them abroad into all the face of the earth [Gen.11v9]. In addition: Except for the Aramaic language, three other main branches flowed from the pro-Semitic alphabet: the Canaan, the Greek, and the South Semitic. From these four main streams, all other languages were developed - within time - amongst the nations of the entire world. DISCUSSION A. The word translated as ‘God’ in the Bible. Beginning with Gen.1v1, and in over 2,700 other Scripture versus in the Old Testament, the Hebrew word ‘Ělôhîym’ is used in the original manuscripts in place of the English word for ‘God’. ‘Ělôhîym’ is the plural for ‘El’ in Hebrew and the plural for ‘Eloah’ in Aramaic: El the Father, El the Son and El the Holy Spirit. Thus, Ělôhîym actually means ‘Gods’ and is so translated 239 times [ex. Gen.3v5; Ex.22v28; 1Sam.4v8; Dan.2v11; 4v8-9; 5v11,14; etc.].
  • 4. Page 4 of 5 Concerning a controversy = Deut.6v4: “Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God is one LORD”, which should actually read “Hear, O Yisrâ’êl: YÂHVÂH our Ělôhîym is one YÂHVÂH”. These words were used at the beginning of the Jewish services of both morning and evening [versus 4+5], and may be termed the short creed of the Jews [‘Shema’]. The word one in Deut.6v4 in the Hebrew is ‘echâd’, which is proportional to ‘united’, and comes from the primary root word ‘ached’ which means ‘unify’, ‘to be united as one’. Literally, “YÂHVÂH our Ělôhîym is a unified YHVH” [“YHVH” is thé Tetragrammaton that will be explained hereafter]. We find the same meaning of unity with the Father and the Son, as well as with the Son and His disciples in John.17v11,21-23,26; the same definition of unity as described in 1John.5v7. There is One God the Father, One Lord Jesus Christ, and One Holy Spirit = Refer to 1Cor.8v6; 12v4-6,13; Eph.2v18; 4v4-6. Thus, there are three separate Persons in divine individuality and divine plurality. The Father is God [1Cor.8v6], the Son is God [Isa.9v6-7; John.1v1-2; 20v28; Heb.1v8], and the Holy Spirit is God [Acts.5v3-4]. As divine individual Persons, each can be called El individually, and collectively they can be spoken of as Ělôhîym because of their perfect unity. In the Hebrew language, the term Ělôhîym is used either as a singular or a plural term, like for example sheep. Other Scriptures to be taken into consideration referring to the three divine separate Persons in unity: “Us”= Gen.1v26; 3v22; 11v7; Isa.6v8; John.14v23; “Their”= Ps.2v2-3. B. The word translated as “LORD” [all capital letters] in the Bible [the Tetragrammaton]. With the translation of the Old Covenant / the TeNaCH of the Jews, from the Hebrew / Aramaic language into other languages, the orthodox Jewish Rabbis refused that the sacred Name of their Ělôhîym be carried over into any other language and be uttered by the lips of the heathen nations [all nations besides Yisraél]. They themselves do not even mention this sacred Name when reading their Scriptures. [TeNaCH= (a) Tora, the first 5 books of Mosheh, (b) Nevïim, the Prophets, (c) Chetoeviem, the rest of the Hebrew Scriptures; concluding the whole of the Bible of the Jews, coinciding with our Old Testament]. Because of this abovementioned unwillingness, an agreement was reached that the vowels of the Hebrew word “Adonai” [‘Lord’] instead be integrated into the Tetragrammaton “YHVH”, resulting in the fabricated and artificial name of ‘Yahovah’; which became ‘Jehovah’ and in other instances became known as ‘Jahweh’. Strangely enough, this erroneous humanly generated name was retained in some or other form in the 1611 King James Bible. Refer to Ex.6v3; Ps.68v4; Ps.83v18; Isa.12v2; 26v4. With the development of languages through the ages, the letters J, U and W were added to the Roman / Latin alphabet during the middle centuries [± 500 A.C.-1492 A.C.]; thus adding to the incorrect name of the Most High = ‘Jehovah’ and ‘Jahweh’. The term “Lord” is found approximately 7,738 times in the Old Testament from Gen.2v4 to Mal.4v5. The term “Lord” is allocated to the numbers 113 and 3068 in the Hebrew and Chaldee Dictionary of Strong’s. (113 = “’âdôwn”, which means sovereign, controller). 3068 = “Ye hôvâh”, which means Self-Existent or Eternal. 3068 has a comparison to 3050. 3050 = “Yâhh” [â is pronounced the same as a in all]. 3068 is also derived from 1961 = “hâyâh” = to be, to exist. 1961 has a comparison to 1933 = “hâvâh” = to breathe. [By the way: “soul” comes from the Hebrew “nephesh” = ‘a breathing creature’ and in turn from the primary root “nâphash” meaning ‘to breathe’; refer - for instance - to Gen.2v7;
  • 5. Page 5 of 5 and from the Greek “psuche” = ‘breath’ and in turn from a primary verb “psucho” = ‘to breathe’]. A study of Ex.3v14: “And Ělôhîym said to Moses [Mosheh], I AM that I AM: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Yisraél, I AM hath sent me to you.” The Hebrew text of Ex.3v14 reads: ‘eyeh ‘asher ‘eyeh [I AM that I AM], the word ‘eyeh being derived from “hâyâh” which means to be, to exist. However, the Aramaic text reads: hâyâh ashar hâyâh [I AM that I AM]. In Ex.3v15 we find the statement of the Father “...this is My Name for ever…” Mosheh [Moses] prophesies to Yisraél [Israel], by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit [‘Rûwach ha’qodesh’], in the Name of the Father Ělôhîym about the coming of His Son, the Mâshîyach, as a ransom for the world’s sins= Ex.23v21: “Beware of Him, and obey His voice, provoke Him not; for He will not pardon your transgressions: for My Name is in Him”. [The same as children have their parent’s surname. Surname= a name common to all members of the family]. When the Son of the Father was on this earth, He spoke to the Jews who wanted to kill Him and said in John.5v43 (a): “I Am come in My Father’s Name, and ye receive Me not…” The angel Gabriél [‘Man of Él’] was sent from Ělôhîym to Mary [Hebrew=Miriam] and the original communication was done in the Palestinian national language in Luke.1v26-38. Luke.1v31: “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shall call His Name JESUS”. Unfortunately, “JESUS” was translated from the Greek “IESOUS”, which in turn was translated from the original Aramaic Name “Yâh-o-shuah” = “Yâh our Saviour”. [Joshua in the Old Testament]. “Hallelujah” should actually be “Allelui Yâh” = “Praise Yâh”. The abbreviated Name of the Father and the Son, “Yâh”, is found embedded in original Hebrew / Aramaic Biblical names: ‘Yeshayâhu’ = Isaiah. ‘Yirmeyâhu’ = Jeremiah. ‘Obadyâh’ = Obadiah. ‘Tsephanyâh’ = Zephaniah. ‘Zekaryâh’ = Zechariah. ‘Nehemyâh’ = Nehemiah. ‘Mattithyâhu’ = Matthew. ‘Yâhanan’ = John. This brings us back to the original Name of the Father. Considering the Tetragrammaton “YHVH” and the Name of the Son Yâhoshuah, in conjunction with the abovementioned, the conclusion is “YâHVâH”. N.B. = Let us earnestly take to heart = Ex.20v7: “Thou shalt not take the Name of YÂHVÂH thy Ělôhîym in vain; for YHVH will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.” Reading from right to left, the Hebrew letters are = Yôwd, Hê’, Vâv, Hê’ = YHVH.
