Thoughts on Reality/HIS NAME..father and son....YAHUAH/YAHUSHA

" The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and TRUTH!" -Dr. Albert Einstein

"Surely HE would not have created such a being as man to exist for a day!  No, no, man was made for IMMORTALITY not immorality!"-cc

"Let me explain the problem science has with G-D.
 
The atheist
Professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new
students to stand.

'You're a Believer, aren't you son?'

                'Yes sir,' the student says.

                'So you believe in G-D?'

                'Absolutely'

                'Is HE good?'

                'Sure! HE'S good.'

                'Is HE all-powerful? Can G-D do anything?'

                'Yes'

                'Are you good or evil?'

                'The Scriptures says I'm evil.'

                The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha!

the Bible!' He considers for a moment.

'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a
Sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him?
Would you try?'

                'Yes sir, I would.'
'So you're good...!'

                'I wouldn't say that.'

                'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could.

Most of us would if we could. But HE doesn't.'

                The student does not answer, so the professor continues.
'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer,
Even though he prayed to HIM to heal him. How is this YAHOSHUA, JOSHUA, Jesus good?

 Hmmm?

 Can you answer that one?'

                The student remains silent.
'No, you can't, can you?' the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.

                'Let's start again, young fella. Is HE good?'

                'Er..yes,' the student says.
Professor: 'Is Satan good?'

                The student doesn't hesitate on this one. 'No.'

                'Then where does Satan come from?'

                The student falters. 'From G-D'

                'That's right.. HE made Satan, didn't HE? Tell me, Son. Is there evil in this world?'

                'Yes, sir.'

                'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And HE did make everything, correct?'

                'Yes'

                'So who created evil?' The professor continued, 'If HE created everything, then HE created evil, since evil exists, and according
To the principle that our works define who we are, then G-D is evil.'

                Again, the student has no answer. 'Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this World?'

                The student squirms on his feet.

 'Yes.'

                'So who created them?'
 The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. 'Who created them?' There is still no answer. Suddenly the
Lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized.
'Tell me,' he continues onto another student. 'Do you believe in THE JEWISH MESSIAH,JOSHUA, JESUS son?'

                The student's voice betrays him and cracks. 'Yes, Professor, I do.'

                The old man stops pacing. 'Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you.

Have you ever seen THE JEWISH MESSIAH?'

                'No sir. I've never seen HIM.'
'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?'

                'No, sir, I have not.'

                'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or G-D for
that matter?'

                'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.'

                'Yet you still believe in him?'

                'Yes'

                'According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your G-D doesn't exist. What do you say
To that, son?'

                'Nothing,' the student replies. 'I only have my Faith.'

                'Yes, faith,' the professor repeats. '

And that is
The problem science has with HIM.

There is no evidence, only faith.'

                The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of his own. 'Professor, is there such thing as heat?'

                ' yes.

                'And is there such a thing as cold?'

                'Yes, son, there's cold too.'

                'No sir, there isn't.'

                The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested.
The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.
'You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited
heat, white heat , a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything
called 'cold'. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no
heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as
cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458
degrees.'
'Every  body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit
energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold
is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold.
Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the
opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.'

                Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the
classroom, sounding like a hammer.

                'What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?'

                'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation. 'What is night if it isn't darkness?'

                'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light,
flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word.'

          'In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'

                The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him.  This will be a good semester.

'So what point are you making, young man?' 

'Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.'

                The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time.
'Flawed? Can you explain how?'

                'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains. 'You argue that there is life and then there's death;
a good G-D and a bad god. You are viewing the concept of HIM as something
finite, something  we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought.'

                'It uses electricity and magnetism , but it has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite   
of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.'

                'Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that  they evolved from a monkey?'

                'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.'

                'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?'

                The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going.

A very good semester, indeed..

                'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you
not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?'

                The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided.

                'To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.'

                The student looks around the room. ' Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?' The class breaks out
into laughter.

                'Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so.

So, according to the
established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that
you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.'

                'So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?'

                Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable.

       Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. 'I guess you'll have to take them on faith.'

                'Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,' the student continues. 'Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?'

                Now uncertain, the professor responds, 'Of course, there is. We see it everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to
man.. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These
    manifestations are nothing else but evil.'

To this the student replied,

'Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of G-D. It is
just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the
absence of HIM. HE did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when
man does not have HIS love present in his heart.

It's like the cold
that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no
light.'

                The professor sat down.

                If you read this all the way through and had a smile on your
face when you finished,then you've got your questioned answered.

Our Spaceship Earth is a delicate Biosphere......
seashell.gif
We inhabit it for awhile. The ALMIGHTY, through education, asks us to upbuild and not destroy it!

YAHUAH IS THE FATHER'S NAME AND YAHUSHA IS THE SON'S NAME; HE WOULD BE A SON TO CONTINUE HIS FATHER'S NAME FOREVER! MAKE NOTE OF THIS WHEN YOU READ THE STUDY ON HIS "NAME," BELOW:

                  We each came into this world naked, helpless and very needy. With compassionate care, our hard
drive brains developed to see relationships. All of us realize that there is something very wrong in Spaceship Earth.  To many go to bed hungry each night.
               So, what are we doing here?  Why was I born?
The questions are endless but relationships make us realize that something very big and very awesome is happening.  Each of us like actors and actressess on a stage, are playing out parts that interact with the whole
system.
 
               One key realization: loving kindness makes a better world and America has afforded us a NATION OF LOVING AND KIND INDIVIDUALS! We do have our limits and that is when our FREEDOMS are brought into question. Support our freedoms!
 
              One of our main freedoms is what we will believe about YAHUAH, WHICH god, HOW many, etc. I have read the Scriptures from cover to cover at least 47 times. My strength has come through its timeless message; that we are in a "War on Ideas," and must choose what we will believe and act on.
                I believe that TRUTH is based in historical reality. Men may change history; that doesn't make it right. Consider what you are about to read. I believe that it is TRUTH but I also believe, that because the majority of people on our planet cannot read, or do not have the time, OUR INFINITE FATHER, will JUDGE US on the sincerity and intent of our minds.
          

                                     HIS NAME

 

 

 

 

( I am not a member of any holy name group. I am a researcher that seeks TRUTH.  These are the conclusions, I have drawn, in my studies on what would be HIS ARAMAIC/HEBREW name, when HE walked in Spaceship Earth.)

 

The 3rd Commandment, in Exodus,

Chapter 20:7 says:

"Thou shalt not take HIS NAME IN VAIN, for HE will not hold him guiltless that takes HIS NAME in name."

 

With fear and trembling we are to work out our salvation. Paul tells us this because HE had the power to speak worlds into existence by HIS words. Our words are weighed as well so with great respect for the gift of LIFE, I say HIS NAME with reverential appreciation.

 

If  TRUTH were not above all authorities, then Christianity would have never broken away from Judaism and Protestantism would have never broken away from Catholicism.

 

A prophecy on HIM:

            Psalm 72: 17, 18, 19.  “HIS name shall be as a son to continue HIS FATHER’S NAME

            For ever, and men shall be blessed in HIM: all nations shall call HIM blessed.The FATHER'S NAME IS YAHUAH, THE SON'S NAME IS YAHUSHA. YAHUSHA IN English is JOSHUA!

Blessed be the FATHER OF ISRAEL, who only does wondrous things

 

and BLESSED be HIS

             GLORIOUS NAME FOR EVER: AND LET THE WHOLE EARTH be filled with

              HIS GLORY: AMEIN AND AMEIN.”

 

 

           John 8:32- “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you Free!”

          John 15:26- “ But when the COMFORTER is come, whom I will send unto

          you from the FATHER, even the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, which proceeds from the

         FATHER, HE shall testify of me.”-Luke 23:38

      

        And a superscription also was written over HIM in letters of Greek, Latin and

       Hebrew, this is the King of the Jews.”-John 19:20

 

Catholicism uses Latin as its language. The Greek language  has its roots in

Paganism and the Hebrew language was the language chosen by the Angel Gabriel

to name the Messiah as well as HIS cousin John the Baptist. Both were named by the Angel.

 

Exodus 6:3-YAHOVAH

Exodus 83:18-YAHUAH, Remember, the letter "J" does not exist in the Hebrew alphabet so HIS NAME is not JeHoVaH but YAHUAH!

 

                “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name (SAVIOUR-

YAHUAH/YAHOSHUA) Yeshua is the masculine form of the word Yeshuah=Salvation, is

based on the same root yud-shin-ayin  as Yoshua which means HE WILL SAVE.

Yud Hay Vah Hay=YHVH

 YAH=MALE

VAH=FEMALE

Eve's name is the Hebrew is CHAVAH.

Only historical TRADITION keeps the Hebrew Savior’s name locked in history. Daniel’s name was changed to a Babylon (Belteshazzar), never a Greek one.  So why the acceptance of so powerful a name as the Hebrew or Aramaic name changed to Greek?  TRADITION!

               

                “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached (in HIS NAME) among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” –Luke 24:47

 

“But as many as received HIM, to them gave HE POWER to become the sons of YAHUAH, even to them that BELIEVED ON HIS NAME.” ( Which name?)-John1:12

“Now when HE was in Jerusalem at the Passover, in the feast day, many believed in HIS NAME, when they saw the miracles which HE did.”-John 2:23

               

“Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS! ”But the hour comes and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the FATHER in spirit and in truth: for the FATHER seeks such to worship HIM. ABBA IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in TRUTH!” –John 4:22-24

 

“HIS NAME ( (Hebrew) shall be a son to continue HIS FATHER’S NAME forever) shall endure forever: HIS NAME shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in HIM: All nations shall call HIM blessed. BLESSED be YAHUAH of Israel who only does wondrous things and blessed be HIS GLORIOUS NAME  forever: and let the whole Earth be filled with HIS glory.” –Psalm 72:17,18,19.

 

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of YAHUAH shall be saved.” –Acts 2:21

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the NAME of YAHUAH shall be delivered: for in Mt. Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as YAHUAH has said, and in the remnant whom HE shall call.” –Joel 2:32

 

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME under Heaven given among MEN, whereby we must be saved.” –Acts 4:12   “And whatsoever you shall ask in MY NAME, that will I do that the FATHER may be glorified in the SON.  If you shall ask anything in MY NAME, I will do it If you love me keep my commandments.” –John 14:13-14-15.

                                                                               

“But the COMFORTER, which is the HOLY COMFORTER, whom the FATHER will send in MY NAME , HE SHALL TEACH you all things , and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” –John 14:26

“When HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH is come HE WILL GUIDE you into all TRUTH……” –John 16:13

 

“You have not chosen me but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain that whatsoever ye shall ask of THE FATHER IN MY NAME, HE  may give it to you,  these things I COMMAND that you LOVE one another.”-John 15:16-17                                                    

“But when  the COMFORTER is come, whom I will send unto you from the FATHER, even the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, which proceeds from the FATHER, HE shall testify of me….” –John 15:16    

                                                                         

                                 Traditional truth or historical truth?

“And you shall be hated of all men FOR MY NAME’S sake, but he that endures to the end shall be saved.” –Matt. 10:22

 

“then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations FOR MY NAME’S SAKE.” –Matt. 24:9

 

“But all things  will they do unto you FOR MY NAME’S SAKE, because they know not HIM that sent me. –John 15:21

 

“……I say unto you, whatsoever you shall ask the FATHER IN MY NAME, HE will give it to you…..Hitherto you have asked nothing IN MY NAME: ask, and you shall receive, that your JOY may be full.” –John 16:23-24.

 

“But these things are written, that you might believe that YAHUAH (YAHUSHA/JOSHUA in English) is the Messiah, the SON OF YAHUAH; and believing you might HAVE LIFE through HIS NAME!” –John 20:31 “And in that day shall you say, praise the YAHUAH, (proclaim HIS NAME), DECLARE HIS doings among the people, make mention that HIS NAME IS EXALTED.” –Isaiah 12:4

 

 “ And they that know thy NAME will put their trust in thee: for thou, YAHUAH, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” –Psalm 9:10  “…..because thou defendest them: let them also that LOVE THY NAME BE JOYFUL in THEE……” –Psalm 5:11

“…..I will set him on high because he HAS  KNOWN  MY NAME! –Ps.91:14

 

“And I will bring the third part through fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall CALL ON MY NAME,  and I  will hear them: I will say, it is my people and they shall say, HE IS MY YAHUAH.”-Zechariah 13:9 “

 

 

 

THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH AS PROCLAIMED IN  ZECHARIAH:

“And he shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be ONE , AND HIS NAME ONE.” –Zechariah 14:9

 

Which language down the stream of TRUTH will we deem as valid,  due to the fact that all history plays a part on each individual’s life?” 

 

Language creates meaning and in the science of VIBRATORY physics, sound creates power. The character of our SAVIOR  is what we want

To exhibit and there is power in HIS NAME as well!

 

              John Worrell Keely-1827-1898, lived his life learning about sound and the Science of Sympathetic Vibratory physics is attributed to him.  42,800 vibrations per second communicated to common Quartz causes its immediate disintegration!

 

           At the tower of Babel, all language was confused for HIS REASONS! Now, we have a greater awareness and languages have a greater meaning. My brain searches for TRUTH, whole truth. What’s

consistent with history and reality?

 

In  the book of Acts 26:14,

  

 “ And when we were all fallen to the Earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul…….. Remember, this is after the SAVIOR had risen from the dead. If HE O.K’ed the changing of HIS NAME, why did HE not call Saul------Paul?  Because HIS NAME NEVER CHANGED.YAHUAH/YAHUSHA Scribes changed it to accommodate the political powers of the time. The Greeks and the Romans were the powers that be at the time and they were at each other's throats.CONSTANTINE STARTED IT ALL!

 Remember, “ we can have all knowledge( 1Cor. 13:2) ETC., BUT if we don’t have LOVE, I am nothing.”

 

                                                                               

 

        Ask anybody what the physical world is made of , and you are likely to be told “ matter and energy!”

 

“Yet if we have learned anything from engineering, biology and physics,
information  
is just as crucial an ingredient. The robot at the
automobile factory is supplied with metal and plastic but can make
nothing useful without copious instructions telling it which part to
weld to what and so on. A ribosome in a cell in your body is supplied
with amino acid building blocks and is powered by energy released by the
                                                                                                      

conversion of ATP to ADP, but it can synthesize no proteins without the
information brought to it from the DNA in the cell's nucleus. Likewise,
a century of developments in physics has taught us that information is a
crucial player in physical systems and processes. Indeed, a current
trend, initiated by John A. Wheeler of Princeton University, is to
regard the physical world as made of information, with energy and matter
as incidentals.
This viewpoint invites a new look at venerable questions. The
information storage capacity of devices such as hard disk drives has
been increasing by leaps and bounds. When will such progress halt? What
is the ultimate information capacity of a device that weighs, say, less
than a gram and can fit inside a cubic centimeter (roughly the size of a
computer chip)?  How much information does it take to describe a whole
universe? Could that description fit in a computer's memory?

 Could we,
as William Blake memorably penned, "see the world in a grain of sand,"
or is that idea no more than poetic license?”

 

  In “Information in the Holographic Universe,” by Jacob D. Bekenstein, the William  Blake quotation should have read, “ see a world in a grain of sand!”   (copyright of Scientific America, August, 2003, Vol. 289, issue 2, pg 58.

 

One last point:

 

    In ll Chronicles 6, it talks about the temple having HIS NAME in it 14 times. That is why it was build, for HIS NAME TO DWELL THERE.

 

   We now have our bodies as HIS TEMPLE:

John2:19-  “Destroy this TEMPLE  and in three days, I will raise it up!” VERSE 21-“HE spoke of the temple of HIS BODY!”

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 -“Know you not that you are the TEMPLE OF YAHUAH, and that that the SPIRIT OF HIM dwells in you.”

 

Satan casts a hellish shadow before the world to hid YAHUAH and the world’s redeemer YAHOSHUA from sight so that if they are viewed at all, it might be through the mists and fogs of superstition, tradition and error, and not in TRUTH. –

 

In a court of law I cannot use my nick name or terms of endearment. The judge must have my legal name for legal affairs. There is no other name but the Hebrew-Aramaic name of the SAVIOR that binds HIS legal contract of salvation when we LOVE HIM AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. John 14:15.

I WOULD ASK YOU TO CHALLENGE ME WITH INFORMATION THAT YOU HAVE ON HIS NAME. I look for truth and if I am wrong about the above information……show me!  HIS BLESSINGS BE UPON US FOREVER…………………              

 

Further food for thought:

                                   For those of you into computers:

 

If I take a blank computer disk and weight it on a scale, it will weigh about 0.7 oz.,   If I spend hundreds of dollars and load it with over a million bytes of software, it will still weigh 0.7 oz., SOFTWARE HAS NO MASS. That disk containing information like your body with your mind’s recorded information are each residents in a physical system.  Housed within that system is all the software which can be transmitted through the airways…..THE POWER OF PRAYER………………..

 

Time is a physical property; it varies with mass, acceleration and gravity.  Therefore, since SOFTWARE HAS NO MASS, it has no time dimension of its own.  The real you, your software, in your brain is spirit. When you go to sleep,  until the Resurrection,  will you be qualified to spend your eternity in the presence of the FATHER with  what you've  stored in your memory banks?   May we not be denied the PRESENCE OF OUR HOLY  INFINITE  FATHER  because HIS SON came and said,

“And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and  I AM  glorified in them!”-John 17:10

 

This website has a lot more on the history of HIS NAME, ETC.,
QUESTION EVERYTHING AND TAKE OUT WHAT IS HISTORICALLY CORRECT

           

OUR HIGH PRIEST IS YAHUSHA! MY SYSTEM HERE, IS NOT ALLOWING ME TO EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Action generates inspiration! NEVER STOP QUESTIONING EXISTING INFORMATION AND KEEP LEARNING! HIS NAME IS YAHOSHUA!????????????

The International Society of Bible Collectors (ISBC), is an organization of people who own, use, study or display any number of Bibles. Its purpose, as stated in the Society’s quarterly journal Bible Editions & Versions is to exchange information and encourage interaction among all those interested in discoveries and developments relating to the background and history of all Bible versions, including their translation, publication, preservation, display and distribution. ISBC was founded in 1964 by Arnold Ehlert (1909-1998), who served as it’s first president and editor of the Society’s journal, then called The Bible Collector.

 

TETRAGRAMMATON

By Anthony Byatt
(Bible Collectors’ World – Oct./Dec. 1987)

The earliest English version to regularly use Jehovah where the TG occurs appears to be that of Henry Ainsworth (1622*). This writer has the 1639 folio of Ainsworth’s Annotations upon the five books of Moses and the books of Psalms, printed by M. Parsons for John Bellamie, and Jehovah (or Iehovah) is used throughout. According to Herbert, Ainsworth’s Psalms first appeared in 1612, and the Pentateuch from 1616. In his annotation on Genesis 2 v. 4, Ainsworth commented: “Iehovah - this is Gods proper name.

It commeth of Havah, he was, and by the firft letter I. it fignifieth, he will be, and by the fecond Ho, it fignifieth, he is…Paft, prefent and to come are comprehended in this proper name as is knowne unto all…It implieth alfo, that God hath his being or exiftence of himselfe before the world was, that he giveth being unto all things…that he giveth being to his word effecting whatfoever he fpeaketh.” (Although outside the scope of this article it should be noted that the form Jehova was previously used extensively in the Latin Bible of Tremellio and Junio first published in four parts over 1575-79.)

A. B. Traina’s Holy Name Bible (1963) uses Yahweh, and is also consistent in Hebrewizing other names as well. In Traina’s NT (1950*) Jesus is YAHOSHUA. 1979 saw the commencement of Kohlenberger’s NIV Hebrew Interlinear using YAHOVAH. Additionally, many popular versions that use LORD have chosen Yahweh for Exodus 6 v. 3, including An American Translation (1927*) and the Basic English Bible (1949*).

 It can go back at least to 1881* when J. M. Rodwell’s Isaiah used the form Jahveh. The same spelling was used in T. H. Wilkinson’s Job (1901*) and G. H. Box’s Isaiah (1908*). Other spellings since then include Jahweh used by Edward J. Kissane in Job (1939*) and Isaiah (two volumes: 1941-43*). In his Psalms (two volumes: 1953~54*) Kissane reverted to the traditional spelling: Yahweh. Another slight variant is Iahweh used in Bernard Duhm’s translation of The Twelve Prophets (1912). Yet another is Jave used on a number of occasions by Ronald Knox in his OT (two volumes: 19490)12 In the popular one volume Bible of 1955 Knox dropped this completely and reverted to LORD in the text and Yahweh in occasional footnotes. Then there is Yahvah used in the Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible (1976), a revision of Rotherham’s translation. Like the similar work of Traina this also Hebrewizes other names. In the NT (1968) Jesus becomes YAHOSHUA.

Another approach has been to literally include the TG as four letters in the translation. “In the Beginning - A New Translatin of Genesis” by Everett Fox, consistently uses YHWH in the main text. Of course this is unpronounceable! In his forward (p. xxix) Fox discusses the use of Lord, Jehovah and Yahweh, and advises “as one reads the translation aloud one should pronounce the name according to ones custom.” Here we have a modern translator truly being “all things to all men” (1 Cor. 9 v. 22 NIV).

This device had previously been used by several late 19th century versions. J. Helmuth’s literal translation of Genesis (1884) and E. G. King’s Psalms (1898) both favored the form YHVH. Another slight variation was provided by the Polychrome Bible (c. 1890s) which used JHVH.

Even if it could be agreed that Eternal (or another expression) accurately conveys the meaning, all other names in translation remain as names. Why should different rules apply here? One awaits with some trepidation an English version that translates the meaning of all names. The appearance of a “Sacred Meaning Scripture Names Version” can only be a matter of time.

This article has concentrated on the TG in the OT and the various decisions translators have made. Over the years a few NT translations have appeared that have also included the TG in some recognizable form. The basis for this has usually been in OT quotations, and more recently on the evidence of some early Septuagint fragments. This more controversial area can perhaps form the basis of a future article.

The two articles below were written for one of our local newpapers called the Chloride Epitaph. The issues presented are timeless so I thought you'd appreciate them:
 

The rule of Law, the Constitution of the United States of America and Are you Having a Good Day

         

             As a recovering alcoholic, who has not drank a drop of alcohol in 35 years, I LOVE REALITY! Reality shows me where there is  personal accountability, responsibility and self-discipline, there is a greater opportunity for happiness for oneself, the community, the state and our precious nation.             

             Today's world features some real problems with many thinking  it is all right to defy what makes for freedom, even at the highest levels of government. We live in a Holographic Universe where my notes in time say that "Eternal Justice" is at work in our world so that no one, in the end, evades accountability. You want to do whatever you selfishly want (litter the streets, push your way through the grocery line, speed through traffic, gossip, be generally uncaring and unloving) without a thought to your neighbor, your town site, your community, your state and your nation, then don't believe the "wind" will not catch up with you.

            By the "wind", I mean you can hear it, you can feel it, but it has no shape, no identifiable form.  You cannot tell where it comes from or where it's going, but you know it's there.  So too, is the reality that there's more to life than just what we see, and  we come into the world naked and we will go out that way—no U-hauls to where we all go.  The easier, no accountability, ride is the one that won't pay the dividends. The 86,400 seconds we have each day can be cashed in by a determined effort to make this a better world, or can be used to make it a miserable one--now and later.

            Life is a learning classroom and the end of  each day either leaves us with hope or misery.

Are you having a good day?

            35 years ago now, I memorized the Ten Commandments. Because I love science and physics, I questioned each commandment for my personal life and then in April of 1981, I got my answer. In the magazine, Physics Today, April 19th, we have these words written:

           “So the Ten Commandments and Sermon On The Mount are examples of cautifications  of  natural laws governing human beings which are in agreement with anything that has been established by authentic scientific investigation.  So does anyone debate that we ought to LOVE our neighbor as ourselves as a physical principle of reality!”

            On March 10, 2006,  I sat atop an Israeli Military tank (above the sea of Galilee, near the Syrian Border).  Thinking to myself, with the great degree of knowledge mankind now possesses (the ability to drive, fly, surgically give people new hearts, give physically challenged children hope) why are we stuck as a species?

            The answer is simple. It's the moral fiber of each human being. The ten Commandments came from the Jewish people!  How do you utilize your precious time? If you knew that at the end of each day you would get $86,400 but would lose it if it wasn't cashed in by the end of the day, you would certainly do your best to make sure it was spent.  So too, precious seconds can be used to "make" it a good day.  When I hear people say to me "have (passive) a good day" I respond, "I'll make (proactive) it a good day".  I'll work toward building our world up, not tearing it down, not even myself, through some addiction. I’m no goody-two-shoes, just another human being trying to decipher what the hell is going on.

           I so love, appreciate and hold in high esteem military men and woman who believe in order and discipline and preserve our freedoms in America. I think of the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama, Judge Roy Moore, who graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1969; who fought in Da Nang, Vietnam,with the 188th M.P. Company. As a judge, Roy Moore was sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

           Consider getting the book, “So Help Me God,” printed in 2005. Chief Justice Moore brilliantly argues that by refusing to follow the unlawful demands of a federal judge,

he denied the rule of man and upheld the Constitution of the United States, the true rule of law, as his oath. The monument of the Ten Commandments was moved to a storage room in the  Alabama Judicial Building.  Federal courts are not the masters of their own jurisdiction; Congress is.

            Many states already have provisions in their constitutions that  prevent an establishment of religion, but all states acknowledge GOD. Isn’t it grand that two of the commandments say, You shall not kill or steal,,,,,,,Whoops, it looks like some judges permit this. I think of children who have their spirit killed as their innocence is stolen from them by rape artists! Where there are no boundaries, there is abuse of individuals and of nations.

 

Semper Fidelis,

Harriet Tubwheelz

 

                     Harriet Tubman has been one of my favorite ladies in history. She is the only woman in American History to head a military campaign during the Civil War. She was 5 ' 2" tall and carried a gun. She helped save thousands of people through the Underground Railroad.

 

Freedom, Reading and Choices

 

          Aren’t treasure hunts grand at any age! As children, we loved finding something of value, even that quarter, under our pillows after loosing a tooth, was a treasure. As adults who pan for gold, it’s really grand when we find a nugget or two.

            All of us know the pleasure of finding a good book that has meaning for us in it. I love books; books can bring us pleasure, knowledge, awareness, peace and just incredible busts of “joy,” in our brains when we read them.

            As a new writer for the epitaph, I would like to alert you to some really good books out there that have brought me awareness and a greater sense commitment to enjoying life, rather than just being pressured by the ups and downs of life. In this “war on ideas,” what we choose to think about can make us or break us. Books are like seeds; they can lay dormant for centuries and then blossom in a fertile mind of creativeness.

            If you like biographies, I think of Sir Issac Newton who said he stood on the shoulders of others, down the stream of time, to create his ideas which changed the entire way mankind looked at reality in his day. I think of Abe Lincoln, who also was a great reader and what he did as President of the USA.

            After Jessica Lynch was captured in Iraq, all of us were on pins and needles and those that pray, were on their knees for this young woman soldier. Then, the miraculous happened. Mohammed Odeh Al-Rehaief risked his life and entire family, to help Special Forces go into an Iraqi hospital and rescue Private First Class Jessica Lynch. Mohammed’s story is the tale of what it was like to come of age in a society where violence and betrayal were everyday events, where one in five adult males worked for the state’s security apparatus. Mohammed was hardly sheltered from the surreal cruelties of Iraq. He was arrested and beaten for owning a satellite dish. His young daughter lost a lung to misdiagnosis and unnecessary surgery. A cousin of his was hanged for joining an Islamic political group and a favorite teacher was carted away for making subversive statements and was never seen again!

              Do go to our Chloride Library and check out the book, Because Each Life Is Precious,” by Mohammed Odeh Al-Rehaief and Jeff Coplon. I finished it in one sitting; being on the edge of my seat, with heart palpitations and all!  I so love America and the freedoms we enjoy as citizens!

Semper Fidelis,

Harriet Tubwheelz
