The Divine Name of the Creator
Throughout History there have been many titles and names given to the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power Life-Force of the endless Universe, but the Scriptures have provided us with one personal name.
Through the Hebrew Scriptures we have been given the personal proper and true name of the Almighty Sovereign Eternal Creator Power of all - to Abraham, Isaac, and the descendants of Jacob/Israel. We believe the name of our One Almighty Sovereign is אהיה (AHYH in English). This is the name He gave to Moses. He says אהיה (I-AM). We are to say יהוה (YHWH) He-is (YaH-WeH). Yahweh is His name when transliterated into English and means: He-is He-exists, or Ever-living. Yahweh is the only one to whom we owe our reverence, prayer, and worship. We should accept none other and not Jesus for worship or for prayer or as our Almighty..
This is the Almighty’s name as was given by Him to us, the people of ‘True’ Israel. This name is to be spoken (as a memorial) to all generations, and this name should be made known to, and used by all true believers, Exo. 3:15. The personal proper name Yahweh originates from the Hebrew verb HYH or HWH meaning in English, to be, to exist. HWH is a Hebrew verb of being in all tenses (the past, the present, and the future). The Hebrew meaning is to have breath (life), or it is used ‘to mean the character of someone’. The addition of the prefix ‘Y’ (Hebrew letter Yod) adds the pronoun ‘He’ to the verb ‘HWH’ (see Strong’s Concordance of the Bible #1933). Notice, there is NO reference here to a Trinity God.
The Creator’s name YHWH is pronounced in English as YaH-WeH (Yahweh), the German yes (YaH) sound connected to the ‘we’ (WeH) the sound of the English word ‘wet’ but omitting the ending ‘t’ sound.
Note: The WeH sound of Yahweh’s name is not pronounced ‘way’ (please notice that the ending is an ‘H’).
Note: The ‘H’ (Hebrew letter ‘Hey’) is an indistinguishable English ‘h’ sound as in the word ‘h-igh’ (the exhaling of breath).
We believe in the original Hebrew/Aramaic names of Biblical persons, and that they should be correctly transliterated to reflect the Hebrew sounds using English letters (as applicable, and where possible), and not deliberately mistranslated, replaced or substituted with unsupported English words as has become prevalent in many English Bible translations. Substituting Hebrew names hides the many important Hebrew meanings of these names, many of which have important compound word meanings.
YHWH is the Almighty Sovereign Eternal Creator Power and the Life-Force Essence of the endless Universe. He Created our globe and all things existing, Gen. 1:1-31; 2:21-25. Yahweh is commonly referred to in error by the pagan term God. We believe Yahweh has declared Himself to be Echad, meaning One, Deut. 6:4 and that He has further revealed Himself to be Father and is the one (set-apart) Life-Force. To His family of believers, He is Father as in Deut. 32:6; Ps. 2:7; 68:5; 89:26. Life-Force (Breath of Life) as in Gen. 1:2; 6:3; Matt. 3:16. The ‘Father’ Yahweh and the Set-apart-Life-Force are one and is the same Creator, the Life-Force-Ever-Living One. We reject the Christian Trinity or the belief of ‘three persons existing in the one being, or a Trinity God. Believing in such an entity is false, and is a primitive belief that is completely foreign to the Hebrew Scriptures. The ‘Trinity’ concept comes from ancient pagan religions.
Yahweh rules over all His Creation, over all that has ever existed, over all that exists now and will ever exist; He only is incorporeal, omnipotent, omnipresent, unchangeable, all-knowing, is above all, and to whom only we owe our reverence and worship, Deut. 6:14-15. He is the only true Alueim (collective Powers, Mighty-One); He is One, Isa. 43:10; 44:6. ‘Hear O Israel, Yahweh our Alueim (Mighty-One), Yahweh is One!’ Deu. 6:4; Mark 12:29. We believe there is no other Power or Life-Force but the One, Matt. 4:10. We believe that Yahweh is in full and absolute control over all of Eternity and over all of His creation at all times, Isa. 46:10; that Yahweh is the Original-Originator Creator and Life-Force Essence that is governing both good and bad, Isa. 45:7; 54:16; Prov.16: 4, that He controls all in accordance with His will and edict.
We believe that the words ‘Holy Spirit (Set-apart, Life-Breath)’ are man-made adjectives used to describe the mighty power and influence of Yahweh and are a reference to His name Yahweh, since Yahweh is a pure Life-Force Essence. Yahweh is without a physical body and without any physical properties, yet He has revealed Himself to True Israel through His many attributes, Gen. 1:1, and through the anointed chosen Prophets, as recorded throughout the Hebrew Bible.
Yahweh has chosen the people of True Israelites to be his witnesses; He is the only One (Sovereign Power) that is in existence……’before me there was no Alueim (Powers) formed, neither shall there be after me.’ Isaiah 43:10. He is also the only Savior. ‘I, even I am Yahweh; and besides me there is no savior.’ Isaiah 43:11.
There is only one holy (set apart) Almighty Power, Life-Force, His name is Yahweh, there is no other. ‘Thus saith Yahweh the King of Israel, and his (Israel’s) redeemer, Yahweh of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no Alueim!’ (Mighty-ones or Powers) Isaiah 44:6.
‘I am Yahweh, and there is none else, there is no Powers beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:’ Isaiah 44:6.
‘Hear, Israel: Yahweh is our Mighty-One. Yahweh is One.’ Deu. 6:4.
Yahshua (Jesus) is NOT Yahweh, he is NOT the Almighty-One. All those that do the will of the Father Yahshua are also sons and daughters of the Father by doing His will just as Yahshua is, Matt. 12:50.
That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am Yahweh, and there is none else. Isaiah 45:6.
