How Dear Is It?

March 18, 2020

 

[Well here we are again! It is my desire to walk as close to Yahweh as I am able, and if that is your desire as well you will forgive me for once again bringing us our Fathers desire to keep His name pure and dear to our hearts.]

 

(Exo 23:13 KJV) And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

 

[Our national language is so polluted we cannot seem to avoid breaking this commandment, and it is a commandment not a suggestion. Most of the words used as a name for Yahweh are in fact descriptions, pronouns not nouns, a group not a single person and used to describe. As you all know I have a special aversion to the word elohim applied to Yahweh.]

 

H430 el-o-heem' Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: - angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.

[Using 'the' before a word does identify in a broad sense one of a set or group as opposed to the entire group. Where in scripture do you find Yahweh setting Himself or His name as part of a group?]

(Exo 6:3 TS2009) “And I appeared to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Ya‛aqoḇ, as Ěl Shaddai. And by My Name, יהוה, was I not known to them?

(Lev 19:12 TS2009) ‘And do not swear falsely by My Name and so profane the Name of your Elohim. I am יהוה.

[If capital letters set Yahweh apart from a group, and He admits He belongs to this group then I may be wrong to deny its usage.]

(Deu 4:35 TS2009) “You have been shown it, to know that יהוה Himself is Elohim; there is no one beside Him.

(Deu 6:4 TS2009) “Hear, O Yisra’ěl: יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is one!

(Deu 32:39 TS2009) See now that I, I am He, And there is no Elohim besides Me. I put to death and I make alive. I have wounded, and I heal. And from My hand no one delivers! 32:40 For I lift My hand to the heavens, And shall say: As I live forever,

[Here are my three witnesses! If Yahweh is the only one who is mighty why would you use a pronoun that puts Him in a group?]

(Deu 19:15 KJV) One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

[In our last Torah study the use of the word elohim as applied to Yahweh is mentioned:

“Lev. 1.2 unto Yahweh. A main purpose of the Levitical … Hence, it was necessary clearly to indicate Who was to be the Israelite's sole object of devotion. The Name of Almighty largely used in Leviticus is Adonay, the Deliverer and Guardian of Israel, and not Elohim, the term for 'God' used also by non-Israelites:

from: The Pentateuch and Haftorahs, edited by Dr. J. H. Hertz, Chief Rabbi of the British Empire March 29, 1941 [pg 410, lower right corner in the two volume set]

Adonai – A Hebrew word which translates “my lord”, or “my sovereign.” Substituted in worship for the Sacred Name of Yahweh by the Jews because of their superstition, it is linked etymologically with the Greek idol Adonis and is therefore unacceptable for use by the True Worshiper.

From: notes: 'The Sacred Scriptures' published by Assembly of Yahweh Bethel, PA

(Eph 1:3-7 KJV) Blessed be the Almighty and Father of our Master Yahshua Messiah, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Messiah:1:4 According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and without blame before Him in love: 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Yahshua Messiah to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 1:6 To the praise of the honor of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved. 1:7 In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace;

[As for my lineage I have no idea except we came out of Europe and the British Isles. Spiritually I have chosen to bind myself to Yahweh though Yahshua! That is what makes me an Israelite, not accident of birth, but a freely made choice. It is the same freedom of choice that allows each of us to decide how we wish to walk, as near as possible or otherwise. The fact that Yahweh says He is the only mighty one leads me to chose Almighty instead of god or for Lord, Most High instead of any term that implies or is applied to any other. Only Yahweh is supreme, over all, under none, sharing power with no other, not a part of any group. Let us ask Him what He wants to be called!]

(Mat 26:73-74 KJV) And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee. 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

(Luk 22:58-59 KJV)  And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 22:59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

 

(Luk 23:6-7 KJV) When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean. 23:7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

 

[Before Peter was accused of being with Yahshua his words in general conversation pointed to his origin as Galilaean, but cursing was used to call it a lie. We know Yahshua spoke with a pure speech for He was the example of Yahweh who is pure. We are called to be pure for Yahweh is pure. That is not possible in our own strength, but as we strive to get it right we are blessed with more strength to do right and to speak in a non-offensive manner. Culture plays a big part in what is acceptable speech and what is not, and it differs within those of common background. Still we are to restrain our mouths from speaking words we would not use in Yahweh's presence, for He is everywhere. In human family units it is the pride of a parent to hear their offspring spoken of as: not having fallen far from the tree, or they are the spitting image. Let our walks bring those same comments about us and our heavenly Father.]

Zephaniah 3:9

(ASV)  For then will I turn to the peoples of a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Yahweh, to serve Him with one consent.

(BBE)  For then I will give the people a clean language, so that they may all make prayer to the Most High and be His servants with one mind.

(DRB)  Because then I will restore to the people a chosen lip, that all may call upon the name of the Most High, and may serve Him with one shoulder.

(ESV)  “For at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call upon the name of Yahweh and serve Him with one accord.

(ISV)  Indeed, then I will return My people to a pure language so that they all may call upon the name of Yahweh, serving Him with a united will."

(JUB)  For then I will restore to the peoples the pure language that they may all call upon the name of Yahweh to serve Him with one consent.

(KJV)  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.

(KJV+)  ForH3588 thenH227 will I turnH2015 toH413 the peopleH5971 a pureH1305 language,H8193 that they may allH3605 callH7121 upon the nameH8034 of Most High,H3068 to serveH5647 Him with oneH259 consent.H7926

(LITV)  For then I will give a clear lip to the peoples, to call all of them by the name of Yahweh, to serve Him with one shoulder.

(RV)  For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of Yahweh, to serve Him with one consent.

(TLV)  For then I will restore to the people pure speech, so that all of them may call upon the Name of Yahweh and serve Him shoulder to shoulder.

(TS2009)  “For then I shall turn unto the peoples a clean lip,b so that they all call on the Name of יהוה, to serve Him with one shoulder. Footnote: bOr language.

(Webster)  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.

(YLT)  For then do I turn unto peoples a pure lip, To call all of them by the name of Yahweh, To serve Him with one shoulder.

[A pure language, a clean lip, pure speech, this will be a sign we can recognize each other by even when we do not know each other. The standardized clothing of the Amish settle this issue for them, that is how they know in general how a stranger among them will think and act. We are to be known by our speech, a speech that is clean, clear, pure of foreign words, and cursing. Also a speech where Yahweh and His name is clearly spoken, not just alluded to, this is so important. It has been said to me that I worship someone other than God, and that is true for my object of worship is one of a kind, Yahweh is His name. Yahshua is like Him, but not Him, for Yahshua will one day give back to Yahweh the special powers He has been given to do the job of saving you and me.]

(1Co 15:24-28 KJV) Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to Yahweh, even the Father; when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 15:25 For He must reign, till He hath put all enemies under His feet. 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 15:27 For He hath put all things under His feet. But when He saith all things are put under Him, it is manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under Him. 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that Yahweh may be all in all.

[This passage is dear to me and all who hold the belief that there is only one Yahweh and He is the Head. He has given certain powers to Yahshua to get a certain job done and when the job is done the special powers needed will return to Yahweh from whence they came. What Yahshua's position was before His human birth we do not know, nor is that important. It is that kind of curiosity that leads to studying man's words to uncover Yahweh's secrets which He has said belong to Him not us. When you understand all the plain reading of scriptures have to teach you may be granted the gift to understand the hidden things.]

(Deu 29:29 KJV) The secret things belong unto Yahweh our Almighty: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

(Dan 2:19-23 KJV) Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the Almighty of heaven. 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of Almighty for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His: 2:21 And He changeth the times and the seasons: He removeth kings, and setteth up kings: He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him. 2:23 I thank Thee, and praise Thee, O thou Almighty of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for Thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.

[What is spelled out plainly in scriptures belong to Yahweh's children, not the world for the concepts are against selfishness. Until we are willing to come into obedience to what we already have been taught by scriptures, not man, we will not receive any more understanding. So, as it always is, obedience to what you know is the key to more understanding of what is plain to those whose eyes, ears, and will have been yielded to Yahweh's way. The phrase “My name” is in scriptures 132 times in 118 verses. All except about 12 refer to Yahweh's name. How can any doubt His name is important to Him? If we love Him should not what is important to Him be important to us? That covers the pronouns as well as the nouns for a pronoun can either hide or expose.]
