This site is about the truth and harmonizing Scripture with Scripture. If you are not looking for the truth, this is not the place for you. As in "the Matrix", you can take the red pill and know the truth, or you can take the blue pill and go back to sleep. This is a red pill site. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free, John (YaHochanan) 8:32.
Do you believe in The Creator of the Universe? If you do, and He told you His Name and commanded that you use it, shouldn't you call Him by that Name?
We believe that He did tell us His Name and that He commanded that we were to use it. Scripture says that we would be known by His Name.
If you have been using the terms, "G-d," "L-rd," "J-sus," etc., I am NOT saying that you have been giving honor, or any such thing to HaSHatan. The Creator understands that you were talking to Him. I am merely saying that the delusion of these terms referring to The Creator, or The Messiah, is not correct and that we should know whom it is that we serve. Now that we know and you have been led to this site, you should become aware of this fact and change your way of thought.
and you shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free
The ultimate purpose of this website is that all humanity should be saved. The Scriptures tell us, "And it shall be that everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved." Acts 2:21
יהוה=YHWH or YaHWeH
(This Name was used 6,823 times in the original Hebrew Scriptures)
One other purpose of this website is to bring about the knowledge and understanding of what happened to the Name of The Creator and to bring back the Name to the people that are to believe in Him. There has been almost 2000 years of covering up His Name with such things as titles and false names and the goal is to bring about the truth as it was once known.

I would like it to be known and understood, that I (Steven Butcher) am NOT making any claims of being special, a prophet, having a special communication with The Father or The Messiah that nobody else has, or to be followed. I am no different than any other person. I just want people to come to a better understanding of who The Creator is and who The Messiah is. The things on this website are an explanation of certain things that other websites do not go through. There are other websites which have more information and more activities. I have links to some of those websites on the links page. If you are going to follow someone, I say follow YaHushuah The Messiah and serve YaHWeH.
I may use certain spellings for The Names, but as explained in articles below, these spellings are what I understand to be English equivalents. You may notice also, that I place an "h" at the end of the Name of The Messiah. This is done merely for emphesis of the pronunciation of His Name. I do believe that the beginning of The Messiahs Name should start with YaH, which comes from [YaH]WeH. You may also notice that within the Names, I also use capital letters for certain letters. In the Name YaHWeH, you can see that I make the letters Y, H, W and H, as capitals. This is done because in the Hebrew, this is what is known as the tetragrammaton (The four letters). The tetragrammaton is the literal spelling of The Name of The Creator as HE stated it. The vowels "a" and "e" in His Name are derived from inference, historical use and linguistical understanding. So, when I spell out the Name of The Creator, I make the originally used letters capital and the vowels in lower case. I use this same principal for specific words only. This is how I do things, but this does not mean that I require, or even expect for others to do the same.

Please feel free to link to this site. I would like for all of the believers to get together in a council as they did in the first century. We should come together in harmony and brotherhood, joining forces to spread the truth and the Names of our Hevenly Father and the Messiah, bringing the Assembly together.

YshaYaH (Isaiah) 42:8 "I am יהוה, that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols.
SHemoth (Exodus) 3:15 And Elohim said further to Mosheh, "Thus you are to say to the children of Ysra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Av̱ra'am, the Elohim of Ytsḥaq, and the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’
I hope that you understand what that means. Do not close your mind to the things that you can learn from. This is especially true when it comes to learning from Scripture, or from a personal revelation from the Creator Himself.
I came across a site in a search that I was doing and I could not believe some of the things which I read. This persons site said that people that believe in and use the Name YaHWeH, were believing in a pagan, false, guess Name and that they do circle/snake dances to Satan. I don't know where this person got there information from, but I have been a believer and used the Name YaHWeH for over 20 years and I have yet to see a circle dance done by fellow believers, or to do one myself. This is something which may pertain to a specific sect, or group. Not everyone that says, or does something is done by everyone.
As can be seen from this site, the truth concerning the Name of YaHWeH is that it is not the Name of a pagan idol, nor is it a guess Name. Some pagan idols were named after the true Name of the Creator starting around 4000 B.C.E. and was done again after the time of Noach (Noah) and the flood.
Don't believe everything that your read. Test what comes from people. That includes what is on this site. If something on this site is in error, it slipped in where it should not have and I will research it and correct it if needed. I have done my best in order to make sure that there is as little, or no errors as possible.
Let me try to make this easy. My name is Steven. Let's say that someone's language does not have a " T " in it, so they say my name as "Seven". Then, someone else's language says they should change the end of a name from an " N " to " rus". Now, my name to them is " Severus ". Then, another persons language does not have a " V " in it, so they change the " V " to a " B ". Now, my name has been changed to " Seberus ". Then, another persons language doesn't have an " S ", but they have the letter " C ", which can sound like an " S " in some words, so they change the letter " S " to a " C ", but an " R " has to be added before the " B ". Now, my name is changed to " Cerberus " Is " Cerberus " my name? No ! These types of things are what was done to the name of the Messiah. By the way, " Cerberus " is in Greek and Roman mythology, is a multi-headed (usually three-headed) dog, or "hellhound" That's NOT me. The name " J-sus " is no longer his real name.
Are you reading Scripture like you are from another world and reading it wrong? Lamsa translated the Aramaic "Peshitta". Where he comes from they still have the same customs and lifestyle as in YaHushuahs' day so he wrote books on the idioms of the Bible etc. He says it's like a foreigner learning english. So he reads in the paper that GM had to cut back on car production and fired 200 workers. He looks up the word "fire" and it says "to shoot or burn," so he takes the first plane out of this country that he can, before these nuts try to shoot or burn him.
The Savior, also known as The messiah, is a touchy subject to try and handle. There are many beliefs concerning who He was/is, or what He was/is. Some say that He was/is the incarnation of YaHWeH in the flesh. There are others that say he was just a man. There are still others that say He was an Angel/Messenger. What is the truth? Can we really know who/what He was/is? The answer is YES! Below, I am going to attempt to give information, which will hopefully shed some light on that very thing and be able to bring some understanding concerning it.
1.) He is not YaHWeH. This can be seen from several verses. Deut. 6:4 - Hear Oh Ysra'El, YaHWeH is our Elohim, YaHWeH is One! YsaYaH 42:8 - I am YaHWeH, that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols. YsaYaH 44:6 - Thus said YaHWeH, Sovereign of Ysra'El, and His Redeemer, YaHWeH of Hosts, 'I am the first and I am the last, besides Me, there is no other Elohim.' Also, YsaYaH 45:5-6; YeremYaH 10:10-11; Marcos 12:32; Eph. 4:6. These all confirm that there is no one equal to, or greater than YaHWeH and that He is alone in that standing.
2.) He is seperate from YaHWeH. 1 Cor. 8:6 - For us there is one Elohim, The Father, from whom all came and for whom we live and one Master YaHushuah The Messiah, through whom all came and through whom we live. Also 1 YaHochanon 4:12-14; 1 Tim. 2:5.
3.) YaHWeH is greater than Him - YaHochanon 14:28 - You heard that I said to you, 'I am going away and I am coming to you,' If you did love me, you would have rejoiced that i said, 'I am going to The Father,' For My Father is greater than I. 1 Cor. 11:3 - And I wish you to know that the head of every man is The Messiah, the head of every woman is the man and the head of Messiah is Elohim. Also,
4.) YaHushuah is YaHWeH's representative - In ancient culture, a representative was someone who acted on the behalf of another as though it were the actual person who is being represented, were doing it. They were called their word, arm, or hand. All of these terms implied action. There are many verses in which YaHushuah is called the word. There are other verses which make it seen, that He was the hand which performed the action that YaHWeH said to do. There are too many scriptures to give examples of this to list.
5.) YaHushuah was formed in the image of YaHWeH - This can be seen in the verse, Heb. 1:3 - who being the brightness of the esteem and the exact representation of His (YaHWeH's) substance, and sustaining all by the word of His (YaHWeH's) power, having made a cleansing of our sins through Himself (YaHushuah), sat down at the right hand of the Greatness on high. Also, Col. 1:15.
6.) YaHushuah was created - In speaking of The Messiah, there is the verse of Col. 1:15 Who is the likeness of the invisible Elohim, the first-born of all creation. YaHushuah was the first and only creation directly by YaHWeH The Father. All else was created through YaHushuah, by the power of The Father. YaHushuah is the one whom performs the work of The Father YaHWeH.
7.) YaHushuah pre-existed - YaHochanon 1:1 In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with Elohim, and The Word was from Elohim. See Proverbs 8:22-30. There are atleast 10 other verses which confirm this, including the satatement by YaHushuah himself in YaHochanon 8:58 - YaHushuah said to them, 'truely, truely, I say to you, before Avra'am came to be, I existed."
8.) YaHushuah does not know all things - Matt. 24:36 But concerning that day and the hour, no one knows, not even the Messengers of the Heavens, but My Father only.
With all of the information which can be seen and known from above, we can come to some very basic understandings of Him. There are other sources which can give more understanding about Him as well. There are the books of Hanok (Enoch), Yasher, and so forth. Within the Book of Hanok, we can read that before the incarnation of The Savior, He was referred to as Metatron (some will say otherwise). You can find that He is referred to as the first among the Archangels, as well as the last among the Archangels (the first and the last). You can understand that He was THE ONLY ONE TO BE ALLOWED TO SEE YAHWEH THE FATHER. From the verse of Heb. 1:3, "brightness of the esteem and the exact representation of His (YaHWeH's) substance," we can see that He was made to be exactly what YaHWeH The Father would look like. To be made from the "substance" of YaHWeH, can give us an understanding that YaHushuah in His pre-existant form (and maybe earthly), He was and is like what we would now call a clone of YaHWeH. From some of the verses above, we can see that YaHushuah was the first among all of creation to be created, He was created to be the working hand of YaHWeH, as well as a few other things. We do know that YaHWeH Himself has NEVER BEEN SEEN BY MAN and CANNOT BE IN THE PRESENCE OF SIN. If these things are true, then how would it be possible for YaHWeH to come down to dwell among men? The fact is, he couldn't! But, His representative could! The one that he created to be able to do that.
Transition of YHWH
Ancient SHemitic Hebrew
Ancient Paleo Hebrew
Modern Box Form Hebrew
These three words, even though they are written in different forms of text, are exactly the same. The Yod, has the sound of “Yuh.” It can be heard either in the Hebrew word, “Yom,” or the English word, “Yes.” When it is used in the Hebrew, it can either be a consonant, or a vowel, the same as in the English language. What some don’t understand is that the other letters in the Tetragrammaton, are also used in the same way within the Hebrew language, so they try to change what the spelling is, to accommodate their English point of view. Some say that the spelling of the Tetragrammaton is, “IEUE,” some others might spell it as, “YHUH,” or “IHUH.” Are these wrong? No, because the four letters in the Hebrew are four vowels. What they do not seem to understand is that the, “YHWH” transliterated directly from the Hebrew language are indeed vowels as well. Just because they are consonants in the English language does not have any bearing as to whether they are vowels. These letters are representations of sounds which are made in the language. The “Yod,” has in essence, the same sound as the letter “I” for the word “IN” within the English language as well. We can see this from many Hebrew words. Therefore, either the “I,” or the “Y” are acceptable forms of the English letter within the Tetragrammaton.
The following however, is where there seems to be a problem. The “Heh” within the Hebrew language cannot be interchangeable with the “E” in the English language. Just because they are both vowels does not make any sense. The “E,” within the English language, is always a vowel and never a consonant. The “Heh,” is either. One thing that needs to be understood also, is that “English” comes from a multitude of languages around the world. Let’s take the word, “English.” If a person were to try and spell it correctly, it should be spelled, “Ingles.” But, to those now, in modern times, who only speak the American language, or the equivalent, would have a hard time knowing what it would be. Yes, the “Heh” in Hebrew does take on an “E” sound, like in “hen.” The whole thing to be able to understand the sound it makes, is in the context of the position of the letter in the word, the word it is being used in, and the sentence that it is used in. All of these factor in to the pronunciation of the letters. The complexity of a single sentence within the Hebrew language, takes a lot of time and work to try and figure out whether what you are saying, is correct, or not.
With the first two letters of the Tetragrammaton, the “Yod,” and the “Heh.” Trying to understand how it is pronounced should not be difficult, as we have examples which have been passed down to us through history. But, there are some which say it is, “YaH,” others say it is, “YeH,” or “YiH,” or “YuH.” What should be first understood, is that ALL of them are incorrect and also correct. Does this seem to dismay you? The “Heh,” is a breath sound. When you breathe out with force, this is what is being conveyed to the reader. So, if you say the “YH” correctly, it should sound like “YHH,” like you are whispering, or hissing. That is very difficult for the English, or American person to speak, so again, we try to accommodate the pronunciation with the way that we are able to say it. Does this mean that we cannot use YaHWeH? NO!
I use the pronunciation YaHWeH (YaHH-OO-eHH). The “OO” that you see, represents the “Waw.” In the English language, it can be represented by an “O,” “W,” “U,” and so on. When spelling the Tetragrammaton, YaHWeH is the most widely accepted and used form of the Name. I have seen people that add another vowel into the center of it. Either another “U,” or an “O.” This forms the word “YaHoWeH,” “YaHuWaH,” etc. This makes some have a distorted view of the word itself. The Tetragrammaton does not have two “Waw’s.” Doing this constitutes adding to The Name of The Creator in my opinion. For pronunciation purposes only, I use the double “O.” This pronunciation is like the sound from the English word “hoot.”
Changing a single letter in a Hebrew word can change the entire meaning of what is being said, as we can see from the following;
The name of this letter is Beyt and has a "b" sound. This letter is a picture of a nomadic tent such as would have been used by the ancient Hebrews and represents what is inside the tent - the family. The meaning of this letter can be tent or within. When this letter is placed in front of the word erets the word be'erets is formed and means "within a land."
The Waw has a "w" sound (called the vav in modern Hebrew with a "v" or "w" sound) and is a picture of a peg or nail which is used to secure or add things together. This letter is used to mean "and" in the sense of adding. When this letter is prefixed to the word erets the word we'erets is formed meaning "and a land."
The Hey has a "h" sound and is a picture of a man with his arms raised up, shouting and pointing at a great site as if to say "behold, look at that". This letter is used to mean "the" in the sense of pointing to something of importance. When this letter is prefixed to the word erets the word ha'erets is formed meaning "the land."
The Lamed (Lam in Ancient Hebrew) has an "L" sound and is a picture of a shepherds staff which was used to direct the sheep toward a particular direction, such as that of water or pasture. This letter is used to mean "toward" and when prefixed to the word erets the word le'erets is formed meaning "toward a land."
The Mem has an "m" sound and is a picture of water. This letter can also mean the flowing water of man and animals, the blood. Blood is passed from one generation to another and can therefore mean "from." When this letter is prefixed to the word erets the word me'erets is formed meaning "from a land."
(Credit and special thanks to; Jeff Benner and the AHRC.)
Even with just the word “eretz,” if you take the first “e” away making the word “retz,” it takes on a meaning; (RTs) ac: Crush co: Potsherd ab: Desire: Broken pieces of pottery were commonly used as writing tablets as they were inexpensive and durable. These potsherds were commonly used to send messages from one person to another, usually carried by runners. If you add another Tzade, the word changes again, taking on the meaning; (R-TsTs) - Crush: To crush something to pieces. Also an oppression or struggle as crushing.
By using the letters “IEUE,” it is more Greek than it is Hebrew. Replacing the “Y,” with an “I” and the “H,” with an “E,” is what the Greeks did. If you go one step forward in history from that, the Latin language replaced the “U,” with a “V.” In order to understand what I am saying, it must be understood that the books which have been translated, were done mostly by Catholic Scholars, during the middle ages. These “Scholars,” were versed in Latin and at the time, the only people which were able to read, were other “Scholars.” The history which we know today is very jaded and twisted compared to what actually was. The common people were held back from learning and were kept away from books.
During the middle ages, in most parts of the world, there were three main areas for a common person to be involved in. 1.) Work, either in a field [farming, livestock, etc.], or in a mill [grain, wood, textile, water, etc.] 2.) War, [being a soldier in the military] or 3.) Serving, [being a servant for the wealthy].
Catholic canon Law #14 (of the thirteenth century in France) "Lay members are not allowed to possess the books of the Old or the New Testaments."
In the Council of Toulouse, the church leaders ruled:
"We prohibit laymen possessing copies of the Old and New Testament ... We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular." "The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the heretics in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out. Concil Tolosanum, Pope Gregory IX, Anno. Chr. 1229.
The most common thing for the wealthy to say was, “it is enough for a common person to be able to sign their name and count to ten.” You either had to be wealthy, or a “Scholar” in order to know how to read and write. This was common practice from the time of the Pharaohs’.
The Jewish people were peculiar, because they were all taught to read and write. It was a part of their heritage. When they were commissioned to translate the Tanakh by Alexander, they were taking on a bigger deal than could be imagined. Niqqud (vowel points) are seldom used, except in specialized texts such as dictionaries, poetry, or texts for children or for new immigrants. When the translators used the Niqqudoth, they did so because they were attempting to give an understanding of pronunciation to those who had no clue how to do so. The Goyim were unlearned in their language and they were trying to convey a basic knowledge of how to speak the words. These Niqqudoth were not used in regular Scriptures. The Masorah also used these Niqqudoth. Claiming that because these Niqqudoth were used, verifies the changing of letters in the English language, is absurd. The Niqqudoth were used only to help the unlearned. Once the person was aware of the pronunciation of the words, the Niqqudoth were no longer necessary, as with a child in school.
Within the English language, we can see the same type of pronunciation issues with ,for example, the “A.” If I say the word “make,” it has an “ay” sound. If I say the word “map,” it takes on a sound of “aa.” If I say the word “mark,” it takes on a sound of “ah.” This same principle should also be applied to the Hebrew vowels. Trying to associate the Hebrew vowels with the English vowels is also equally absurd to do. This creates a confusion which should be bypassed.
This is a very interesting topic. The Sabbath (SHabbat in Hebrew), was originally held and observed from Friday evening until Saturday evening. It was changed by Roman Emperor Constantine around the year 321 C.E., where he declared -
"On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain-sowing or for vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost." given the 7th day of March [A.D. 321], Crispus and Constanstine being consuls each of them for the second time.”—The First Sunday Law of Constantine I, in “Codex Justianianus,” lib. 3, tit. 12,3; trans. in Phillip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, p. 380
He was still venerating the Sun, pagan sun worship, part of what he had done previous to supposedly becoming a believer in Chist. 16 years after Constantine’s Sunday Law of A.D. 321, this was decreed:
“Christians shall not Judaize and be idle on Saturday, shall not be idle on the Sabbath, but shall work on that day; but the Lord’s day they shall especially honour, and as being Christians, shall, if possible, do no work on that day. If, however, they are found Judaizing, they shall be shut out [‘anathema,’ excommunicated] from Christ.” Council of Laodicea, c. A.D. 337, Canon 29, quoted in C.J. Hefele, A History of the Councils of the Church, Vol. 2, p. 316
Observing the Staurday sabbath was equated with being jewish (being "Judaized") and since it sounded better than saying they wanted to follow pagan tradition, the Jewish people were seen as those that "killed" the messiah and they wanted to get away from doing anything Jewish. This was a misgiving, since it is not the Jewish people that "killed" the Messiah, humanity through the fall (our sin) "killed" the Messiah.
Later in history, this is what was said about this change;
“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [of the Sabbath to Sunday] was her act . . and the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical power.” From the office of Cardinal Gibbons, through Chancellor H.F. Thomas, November 11, 1895
What exactly is it that the Catholic Church does say now?
quote from the Catholic Press newspaper in Sidney, Australia. "Sunday is a Catholic institution and its claims to observance can be defended only on Catholic principles. From the beginning to end of Scripture there is not a single passage that warrants the transfer of weekly public worship from the last day of the week to the first.”
The Catholic Mirror of September 23, 1894; “The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday.”
from Reverend Steven Keenan’s Doctrinal Catechism we read this: “Question: Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept? Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her; she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day; a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.”
So, if you or someone you know is observing Sunday as the Sabbath, it is a Catholic instituted ordinance, of which, they had NO authority to change and if you are NOT a Catholic, why are you observing it? If you are a Catholic and observing this ordinace, you have been LIED to and are not following the truth of what is in Scripture. The Sabbath was NEVER changed from what it was, from the time of Moshe (Moses) until the present.
from the book, The Faith of Millions, p. 473, by Rev. John O'Brien. “But since Saturday, not Sunday, is specified in the Bible, isn’t it curious that non-Catholics who profess to take their religion directly from the Bible and not from the Church, observe Sunday instead of Saturday? Yes, of course, it is inconsistency but this change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born, and by that time the custom was universally observed. They have continued the custom even though it rests upon the authority of the Catholic Church and not upon an explicit text from the Bible. That observance remains as a reminder of the Mother Church from which the non-Catholic sects broke away like a boy running away from home but still carrying in his pocket a picture of his mother or a lock of her hair.”
from Cardinal Gibbons’ book, The Question Box, p.179, “If the Bible is the only guide for the Christian, then the Seventh-day Adventist is right in observing Saturday with the Jew. Is it not strange that those who make the Bible their only teacher should inconsistently follow in this matter the tradition of the Catholic Church?”
Is Scripture the only guide for you?
There are some that say the calendar that we have today was changed and the day for The Sabbath (SHabbat) was lost. This is NOT 100% correct. Yes, the calendar was changed, but ONLY THE DATE was changed. Here is what is said about that change -
When the Gregorian calendar was adopted by each country, the weekly cycle (of Sunday through Saturday) continued uninterrupted. So, using the original proposed adoption date, Thursday, 4 October 1582 would be followed by Friday 15 October.
The DATE was changed from the 4th to the 15th (as an example), but the day was kept continual, going from Thursday to Friday. NO days were added, or taken away.
Some will say, ok, but what about other calendars?
The Julian (second Roman Calendar) originally began with Martius (March). Julius Caesar adjusted the calendar ignoring the lunar cycle in recalculating the calendar. He divided the year into twelve months having 30 or 31 days each except February (the last month) which had only 29. He ruled that the year 46 BCE would have 445 days to correct the calendar for accumulated errors. That year became known as "the year of confusion."
According to tradition, Augustus moved a day from February to August (His month) to make August as long as July (the month named after Julius). Traditionally, cultures add or remove days or months in the end of their calendar to adjust for solar to lunar variations in the calendar. This is why February was selected to be the short month.
Although the days were moved around and they played with how the DATES were being done, even the Romans DID NOT change the actual days of the week. These days have remained the same foe more than 3000 years. The Hebrew people never counted according to the Roman days when it came to their days of worshipping The Creator.
The seven day week was created by YaHWeH. While in Egypt, Israel was forced to keep an eight day week which caused them to lose which day was the Sabbath. After the exodus, YaHWeH clearly revealed the Sabbath to them and re-established the seven day week .
Since the exodus, the Hebrew and Roman/Gregorian calendars have always had seven day weeks. The weekly calendar has never been adjusted. The first day of the week has always been the first day (Sunday) since the Exodus.
I = the letter "I" is the ninth letter of the alphabet, coming through the Latin from the Greek and ultimately from the Semitic or Hebrew "yod," " י " the first letter in Yahweh's Name.
speak = from the German "sprechen."
English = a proper noun based in German
so = akin to the Gothic "swa."
do = traces to sanskrit which was spoken in India
not = Old English "nought," cognate to several Old Saxon and French formations
use = from Latin "asus."
the = from Teutonic and Indo-European forms
Hebrew = From the Hebrew "Eber," or "Ibrit," "one who "crosses over."
Name = from the Greek "onoma."
For anyone that says that they don't use the Hebrew Name for the Father, they should know that the English language has over 35,000 words which are directly related to the Hebrew language which they most likely use on a daily basis. Saying this, is merely an excuse to be ignorant and that is right where HaSHatan wants you.
What is this image of??? Most people would say that it is an image of The Messiah carrying a lamb, being "the Shepherd," but they would be incorrect.
With this, as with so many other things, the Roman and Greek Governments were attempting to convert things which they already had in place.
Pictures which depict The Messiah carrying a lamb on His shoulders are from the idea of Philanthropia. Philanthropia is a titan of the Roman or Greek world.
Philanthropos, combined two words: Philos, or “loving” in the sense of benefitting, caring for, nourishing; and Anthropos— “humankind”, “humanity”, or “human-ness”. Prometheus did not “love” the proto-humans individually, because at that mythical point in time individuality did not yet exist—that requires culture. What he evidently “loved”, therefore, was their human potential—what they could accomplish and become with “fire” and “blind hope”. The two gifts in effect completed the creation of humankind as a distinctly civilized animal. 'Philanthropia'—loving what it is to be human--was thought to be the key to civilization.
The Greeks adopted the “love of humanity” as an educational ideal, whose goal was excellence. the fullest development of body, mind and spirit, which is the essence of liberal education. The Platonic Academy's philosophical dictionary defined Philanthropia as: “A state of well-educated habits stemming from love of humanity. A state of being productive of benefit to humans.” Philanthropia was later translated by the Romans into Latin as, simply, humanitas—humane-ness. And because Prometheus’ human-empowering gifts rebelled against Zeus’ tyranny, philanthropia was also associated with freedom and democracy. Both Socrates and the laws of Athens were described as “philanthropic and democratic”—a common expression, the idea being that philanthropic humans are reliably capable of self-government.
These general ideas of adopting things which were already accepted by society in the Roman and Greek worlds were done in many areas. Things like the date of December 25th as the birthday of YaHushuah instead of Mithras, or Sunday being the day for "Easter," instead of the Spring equinox and being attributed to YaHushuah.
Does this image look familiar? What's that you say? The Statue of Liberty? NO! This image has been used for about 4000 years. This image was originally used to represent "Ishtar" (now spelled Easter, or Esther), or "Ashteroth," "Hera" (Greek Idol), and so on. (See how they made slight changes from the picture below.)
Keep your eyes open and be on the alert. HaSHatan is out there to deceive you and to make it so that you will not be saved. Don't let The Deceiver try to deceive you, be on your guard at all times, for he walks to and fro seeking whom he may destroy. HaSHatan is a ravenous beast looking to steal, kill and destroy.
You say that His Name is NOT YaHWeH, but YaHUaH. YHWH or YHUH is the Tetragrammaton. We know that the the YH is pronounced as Yaw, as in the English word "yawn" and has the spelling of YaH. The third letter (waw) has the sound of "OO," or the letter "U" sound. The "H" on the end of the Tetragrammaton, gives the finallity pronunciation of an "HH" sound, like "EH," or "AH," as the vowel sound in the pronunciation is silent. Therefore, the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton would be "Yaw-oo-hh," or "Yaw-u-hh." The spelling of the pronunciation is almost impossible in the English language. Whether it is spelled "YaHWeH," or "YaHWaH," or "YaHUeH," or "YaHUaH," is almost insignificant, however it can be an issue. I use the spelling of YaHWeH in English for basic purposes only, due to its widespread use.
In ancient Hebrew, the letter "ו," known to modern Hebrew speakers as vav, was a semivowel /w/ (as in English, not as in German) rather than a /v/. The letter is referred to as "waw" in the academic world. Because the ancient pronunciation differs from the modern pronunciation, it is common today to represent יהוה as YHWH rather than YHVH. In Biblical Hebrew, most vowels are not written and the rest are written only ambiguously, as the vowel letters double as consonants (similar to the Latin use of V to indicate both U and V). See Matres lectionis for details. Therefore it is, in general, difficult to deduce how a word is pronounced from its spelling only, and the Tetragrammaton is a particular example: two of its letters can serve as vowels, and two are vocalic place-holders, which are not pronounced.
Qere and Ketiv, from the Aramaic qere or q're, קרי ("[what is] read") and ketiv, or ketib, kethib, kethibh, kethiv, כתיב ("[what is] written"), refer to a small number of differences between what is written in the consonantal text of the Hebrew Bible, and what is read. In such situations, the Qere is the technical orthographic device used to indicate the pronunciation of the words in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), while the Ketiv indicates their original written form.
A Qere perpetuum ("perpetual" Qere) differs from an ordinary Qere in that there is no note marker and no accompanying marginal note. These are certain commonly-occurring cases of Qere/Ketiv in which the reader is expected to understand that a Qere exists merely from seeing the vowel points of the Qere in the consonantal letters of the Ketiv.
Though the basic consonantal text written in the Hebrew alphabet was never altered, sometimes the Masoretes preferred a different reading of a word than that found in the pre-Masoretic consonantal text. The qere/ketiv represents an attempt by the Masoretic scribes to show, without changing the received consonantal text, that in their opinion or by tradition a different reading of the text is to be preferred. That preferred Masoretic reading is known as the Qere (Aramaic קרי "to be read"), while the pre-Masoretic consonantal spelling is known as the Ketiv (Aramaic כתיב "(what is) written"). In such cases, the vowel diacritics of the qere (their alternate, but preferred reading or correction) would be placed in the main text, added around the consonantal letters of the ketiv (the masoretically-disapproved variant to be substituted, even if it contains a completely different number of letters), with a special sign indicating that there was a marginal note for this word. In the margins there would be a ק sign (for qere), followed by the consonants of the qere reading. In this way, the vowel points of the qere were separated from the consonant letters of the qere - but they were meant to be read together (even though the vowel points of the qere are located on the consonant letters of ketiv).
The emendations can be considered matters of scribal opinion, but nevertheless by tradition they are what is followed when the scroll is read in synagogue, and modern translators also tend to follow the qere rather than the ketiv. In a few cases a change may be marked solely by the adjustment of the vowels written on the consonants, without any notes in the margin, if it is common enough that this will suffice for the reader to recognize it. For example, the form הוא (heh, waw, aleph, with a dot on the left side) appears throughout the Torah. This is the result of the consonantal text bearing the letters הוא, which are normally pointed as הוא (hu), which means "he." However, whenever the antecedent is feminine, the text has been marked הוא (the heh having a vowel point under it) to instruct the reader to read it as the consonantally different היא (hi), which means "she."
This way of marking the text by adjusting the vowels only is known as a qere perpetuum. Another example of an important qere perpetuum in the text of the Bible is the name of the deity of Israel --יהוה (cf. Tetragrammaton) -- which is marked with the vowels of adonai (meaning "my L-rd") rather than with its own vowels (sometimes with the vowels of אלהים elohim, forming the word YeHoWaH).
The main approaches in modern attempts to determine a pronunciation of the name have been - study of the Hebrew Bible text, study of theophoric names and study of early Chr-stian Greek texts that contain reports about the pronunciation.
The discovery of the Qumran scrolls has added support to some parts of this position. These scrolls are unvocalized, showing that the position of those who claim that the vowel marks were already written by the original authors of the text is untenable. Many of these scrolls write (only) the tetragrammaton in paleo-Hebrew script, showing that the Name was treated specially.
the Encyclopedia Judaica concludes:
"The true pronunciation of the name YHWH was never lost. Several early Greek writers of the Christian church testify that the name was pronounced “Yahweh”. This is confirmed, at least for the vowel of the first syllable of the name, by the shorter form YAH, which is sometimes used in poetry (e.g..EX. 15:2) and the – yahu or – yah that serves as the final syllable in very many Hebrew names."
With the spelling of YaHWeH, it only adds in "breath sounds." This is pronounced "Yaw-oo-hh, or Yaw-uay." The "Y," which is the English version of the "yod" is pronounced as a strong "Y" (consonant form) in Hebrew. The "H," added to the "Y," must have an "aw," or "ah," sound in order to make it have assuredness, or "masculinity." This makes the beginning of the Name it's strength. The next letter is the "W." The "W" is the English equivelent of the pronounced sound of the "vav," or "waw" in the Hebrew. The letter "U" may be placed instead of the "W," however an English reader may have problems with the pronunciation of the Name. The last letter of The Name is the "H." Generally, masculine nouns are concrete while feminine nouns are abstract. An "H" on the end of a Hebrew word gives it "action," as the "H" makes the Name a "verb."
As the first "H" is included with the "Ya," as can be seen from the form in Psalms, it would not take on its own pronunciation. It would remain as part of the same pronunciation, "YaH," forming the first part of the Name and is essentially a heavy "H" sound. The second portion of the Tetragrammaton, “WeH,” or "UeH," has the sound of "oo-ayh." Both of the "H's" in the Tetragrammaton would be pronounced like you were breathing out the pronunciation. So, the way that it is said is "YawHH-OOeyHH." As this is difficult for any American speaker to say, the closest that we can come to it is, "Yaw-way (in English)."
What many do not seem to understand is that if the pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton changes, then so does the meaning. Although in the English language we have many words which are spelled differently and pronounced the same, such as "their," "there" and "they're," the opposite can be said of Hebrew. In Hebrew a word may be spelled the same, but the pronunciation is different. The pronunciation of a word is determined by the sentence that it is in, and/or by a set standard. The "set standard" way of pronouncing a word is in effect for such things like names. Please, do not let this confuse you. let's use the words from above. With the word "their," in Hebrew it may be pronounced, "tha-eer," yet the word, "there," may be pronounced as "tha-air" and "they're" may be pronounced as "tha-ar," but in English they all sound the same. These slight changes in pronouncing a word can have a great effect, sometimes to the point of reversing the meaning. Let's take 2 Hebrew words and see what happens. The word "SHLM," is spelled in Hebrew with the letter “ ש SHin,” “ ל Lamed” and “ ם Mem.” One way to pronounce this is "SHaLoM," which means "benefit, peace, peacetime, prosperity, welfare, well." Another way to pronounce this is "SHaLeM," which has the meaning of "complete, fully devoted, undivided." But, just changing a couple of things in it and saying "SeLa'iM," it takes on the meaning of "rocks." When this same type of thing happened with the Tetragrammaton by the mesorites adding in the vowels of the word A-d-O-n-A-i. Later by other translators, they formed the word yahovah, inadvertantly making the name take on a meaning of “the creator of destruction and ruin.” This word is still in use today as “Jehovah.” The (HWeH) - has the meaning "Exist: To exist or have breath. That which exists has breath. In Hebrew thought the breath is the character of someone or something. Just as a man has character, so do objects [Hebrew and Aramaic]." (HWaH) has the meaning "A wicked or disastrous event." The changing of the vowel pronunciation from "e," to "a," also changes the pronunciation of the consanant behind it. Instead of the "oo" sound of the "waw," it changes it to a "v" sound. You can find this word, "hovah," in the strong's concordance, numbers 1942 and 1943.
There are some which have taken the emphasizing of the “HOO” sound to an extreme and have placed another "U" sound between the "W" and the "H." If this were done, it would change the spelling of the Tetragrammaton. Let me show how. By adding a "u" between the "W" and "H," the form " יהווה " is what it would then look like in the Hebrew. Notice the double "waw." This being done then changes the entirety of The Name.
I am not saying that changing the entirety of the word is being done by using the letter “W,” or “U.” All that I am saying is that the pronunciation of the Name in English is difficult at best and that the most common form of what is accepted, is the spelling Y-a-H-W-e-H and the spelling of Y-a-H-U-a-H, may have effects which may be detrimental.
Do you believe in The Creator? Do you believe Scripture is true? Do you believe in The Messiah? If you do, why do you believe in evolution?
Evolution teaches things which are in contradiction to Scripture and calls The Messiah a LIAR. The following are some of these teachings -
1.) The universe came into existence without a Creator.
2.) Mankind came into existence without a creator.
3.) Death existed before the fall of Adamah.
4.) The universe is 18 to 20 Billion years old.
5.) Man (and all life) evolved from non living material.
Just with these 5 teachings above, it says that The Creator did not create everything that exists, that creation did not happen the way that Scripture says that it did and that The Messiah died for no reason.
There are some which say that some of these things have nothing to do with evolution, but they do. One thing that should be asked is, "where did that come from?" You are here, but where did you come from. Evolution says you came from and ancient "ape like" ancestor. Where did the "ape like" ancestor come from? Evolution says it came from a lower life-form and so on, back to an "ameba," or a single celled organism. Where did the single celled organism come from? Evolution says, "it rained on the rocks for millions of years," which caused a chain reaction and caused "life." Where did the rocks come from? Evolution says rocks came from "chemicals" and "fusion," of certain materials, which formed "matter." Where did the "matter" come from? Evolution says it came from "the big bang." So, as you can see, for you to have one, you must have a cause. You cannot just start at one point and say that the others have nothing to do with evolution.
Let's look just at this last statement, that The Messiah died for no reason. If evolution is true, then death existed before the fall of man. YaHushuah came to redeem mankind from the curse of death. Scripture states that death came through sin and sin came through man. If man caused death to come into the world, how could there be death before the fall of man? If there was death before the fall of man, there would be no reason for The Messiah to die and redeem mankind. If the earth is older than Adamah by "billions" of years & death was here already, it makes Scripture & The Messiah a liar. Rom 5:12, Rom 5:19.
If evolution is true, The Messiah is a liar, which means YaHWeH is a liar. If YaHWeH is a liar, Scripture is a lie.
Evolution is the lie! It has been proven to be false many times over the last 150 years and that the ones that say it is true, are also liars.
Below you will find a video of Dr. Kent Hovind explaining some lies of evolution and how the people that believe in evolution intentionally lied about things which are still taught today. He does use terms such as, "G-d," "L-rd" and "J-sus," but he knows the truth about the teaching of evolution.
Here is what evolution leads to -

I am in need of financial assistance. I am placing this here in the hopes that someone will be able to help with donations. Over the past couple of years, I was helped by great brothers and sisters. A couple of years ago, my wife left me and I was forced to leave and became homeless. I left the state of West Virginia to go to Texas, where a brother allowed me to stay on a property he owned. He sold the place and I moved to Arizona, where I had grown up and my sister still lives. I am presently still essentially homeless. I am being helped by my sister and her husband, by being allowed to stay with them. As I am still unable to find work, I need some financial assistance to help with bills and a few other things. If anyone is able to assist me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and may YaHWeH bless you. SHalom!

Black elderberry is most commonly known for its medicinal uses in the aid of upper respiratory infections, constipation, and fever. It is an antiviral which has the ability to stimulate the immune system. Black elderberry has even been known to show positive effects against the herpes simplex virus and HIV. “A clinical trial of elderberry found that it cured ninety percent of flu infections within 72 hours.”
Black elderberry can be both internally and externally. Internally only the flowers and berries can be ingested. Pure alcoholic tinctures, vinegar and alcoholic tinctures (acetum), teas and syrups can be made out of the flowers and berries. The pure alcoholic tincture form can be made out of either fresh or dried flowers. To make the acetum tincture form, “pack the flowers in a crock or jar and cover with simmering hot apple cider vinegar. Cover and set aside overnight, then pour off through cheesecloth.” (Cech, 144) A tea can be made out of dried flowers and ingested hot or cold. There are two ways syrup can be made out of black elderberry. The first way involves mixing one part of dried elderberry flower tea with two parts of honey. The second way consists of mixing two parts honey for every one part of juice made from raw or cooked berries.
Externally, black elderberry can be used as a wash, a bath solution, oils, salves or creams. The wash form can be made by taking cold elder tea. This can benefit oily or acne skin. The bath solution is usually used in combination with elderberry tea or tincture to cure a fever. To make the solution add dried black elderberry flowers to a muslin bag. The bag is then added to hot bath water. This will help sweat out the fever. One of the few uses involving the leaves is included in the making of oils, salves or creams. To make herbal oil out of black elderberry, use fresh, green leaves. The oil can be used alone or mixed to make a salve or cream. The use of the leaves is beneficial to old burns, ulcerations and hemorrhoids.
The black elderberry contains nearly five times the level of anthocyanins (natural antioxidants) of the blueberry!
The black elderberry has twice the overall antioxidant capability of the cranberry!
Research data from studies around the world have proven black elderberry extract to be effective in shortening the duration of influenza A and B. In fact, many people who use elderberry extract never get the flu at all.
Among all fruits, elderberries are the most concentrated source of anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids that act as powerful antioxidants to boost the immune system and protect the body’s cells from harm.
These anthocyanins are found in the purple pigment of black elderberries, and according to Dr. Gerhard Rechkemmer, president of Germany’s Federal Research Institute for Nutrition and Food, they have significantly greater antioxidant capacity than common antioxidants such as Vitamin C. In fact, Dr. Rechkemmer’s research has shown that the anthocyanins in black elderberry actually boost the production of cytokines, the proteins that act as messengers within our immune system, and thereby serve to enhance the body’s immune response.
Cytokines play a crucial role in the immune system’s response to disease. Cytokines work in ways very similar to hormones. They are released by immune cells into the blood stream or locally into body tissue during an immune response. There are many different types of cytokines including interleukins, interferons and tumor necrosis factors. Why are anthocyanins so important? These compounds are powerful antioxidants that protect cells against free radicals, while boosting the immune system at the same time.
Several studies have shown that extracts from the fruits of the black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) may help to activate the immune system by increasing inflammatory cytokine production. (Barak 2001, Barak2002))
Both studies above found that extracts from black elderberries helped increase the production of interleukins 6 and 8 (IL-6, IL-8) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α;). All of which have been shown to have pro-inflammatory properties in fighting infection (2,3).
One study (Barak 2002) also demonstrated that an extract of black elderberry increased the production of the anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10.
Warnings for use of Black Elderberry
The seeds of raw elder berries can be extremely toxic, which is why most physicians suggest buying Sambucol, which is a commercial form of black elderberry syrup. Since there are about 20 different species of elderberries, it is important only to make homeopathic remedies from the trees that produce black, blue or purple berries. The trees that produce red berries have been proven to hold a higher level of toxicity.
