[Exodus 3:13-15]  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations…[Exodus 6:2-3]  And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.”

And, when the LORD established the Ten Words or Commandments, He further stressed how holy His TRUE NAME is in the following verse:

[Exodus 20:7]  Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

So through out the Old Covenant, the LORD GOD is known by the name YHVH (YEHOVA) or as some other rendering of the same abbreviation as YHWH (YAHWEH).

First, let us revisit His birth story:

[Matthews 1:18-21]  Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS or YESHUA: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

YESHUA is a combination of YEHOVA-SHUA or YEHOVA SAVES!

Then, we fast forward to the NEW TESTAMENT period, the era of the birth and short ministry of the Lord YESHUA.

And shortly before fulfilling His mission to save His people from their sins, He taught His disciple the following way to ask the Father,in prayer:

[John 16:23]  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME, HE WILL GIVE IT YOU.  

Then He further said:

THESE THINGS HAVE I SPOKEN UNTO YOU IN PROVERBS: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. [John 16:25]

What He said in proverbs the way we can decipher it is this: WHATSOEVER YOU SHALL ASK “YHVH” (THE FATHER) IN MY NAME (YESHUA), HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU.”

Why did the disciples had to pray to the Father in His Son’s Name?

Because He said in John 10:30 “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE” which re-affirmed further the truth of: I AM come in MY FATHER’S NAME [John 5:43a; Exodus 3:14].

The Father will act if we ask in YESHUA’s Name, which is none other than His own name!

Then the Lord YESHUA fast forward to after His sacrificial death, resurrection and ascension:

[John 16:26]  At that day ye shall ask in my name: AND I SAY NOT UNTO YOU, THAT I WILL PRAY THE FATHER FOR YOU…”

After the Lord’s sacrificial mission, and YESHUA’s reclaimed His heavenly throne and becomes our High Priest [Hebrews 3:1], we address the LORD GOD, by His accomplished “saving mission’s” NAME YESHUA or YEHOVA-SAVES!

For the bible says:

[Act 4:10,12]  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ (YESHUA ha Masiach) of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole…NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER: FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.”

So, we have read how holy and sacred is the name of the LORD GOD which He had declared to the world; YESHUA which is known in the scripture as JESUS CHRIST.

Chris Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith ( answers a listener email regarding the Biblical evidence for Jesus being God in human flesh.

 Jeremiah 7:11     Is this HOUSE, which is called BY MY NAME, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

All believers in the Lord JESUS CHRIST are identified as CHRISTIANS:   “…And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch [Acts 11:26]

Thus it follows, all of the so called CHRISTIAN CURCHES are identified as “HOUSE,” which is called “BY MY NAME.”

The prosperity gospel . Is it of God, or is it a false gospel leading people to destruction?

Jeremiah 32:34   But they set their abominations in the HOUSE, which is called BY MY NAME, to defile it.

I realize that some of us had or are still actively involved in the charismatic churches which practice, among others, the two type of churches cited above. In the course of my sharing period, I have given a few examples of aberrant gospels followed by suspect churches. Please click the various article posted in my Website:

Elder Peter admonished us with the following words:

[2Pe 3:9-17]  THE LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. SEEING THEN THAT ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE DISSOLVED, WHAT MANNER OF PERSONS OUGHT YE TO BE IN ALL HOLY CONVERSATION AND GODLINESS, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; AS ALSO IN ALL HIS EPISTLES, SPEAKING IN THEM OF THESE THINGS; IN WHICH ARE SOME THINGS HARD TO BE UNDERSTOOD, WHICH THEY THAT ARE UNLEARNED AND UNSTABLE WREST, AS THEY DO ALSO THE OTHER SCRIPTURES, UNTO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION. YE THEREFORE, BELOVED, SEEING YE KNOW THESE THINGS BEFORE, BEWARE LEST YE ALSO, BEING LED AWAY WITH THE ERROR OF THE WICKED, FALL FROM YOUR OWN STEDFASTNESS.
