We are reconciled by the Human Name of YAHSHUA, But are saved by the Inherited Name, YAHWEHSHUA!
One of the greatest lies perpetrated by religionists is that a man’s name is the name of salvation.
Messiah warned us about this type of deception in Luke 11:52: “Woe to you lawyers! For ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”
The prophet Joel gave us the key of knowledge in Joel 2:32: “And it came to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yahweh hath said, and in the remnant who Yahweh shall call.”
Peter quoted Joel in Acts 2: 21: “and it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.”
The apostle Paul is the third witness to the name of salvation in Romans 10:13: “for whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved.”
The Yahweh all three referred to was Messiah. He was the Yahweh of the Old Testament. Paul, who learned directly from YahwehShua, teaches us this in first Corinthians 10:4: “And did all[the Israelites with Moses] drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Messiah.”
Who was that rock that followed the Israelites while in the wilderness?
Please read Exodus 14 to learn more about this being. That being was Yahweh of Hosts, Yahweh Shalom, and later was known as YahwehShua. For additional names, please see appendix four in the Companion Bible. Messiah left that spiritual preexistence (John 17:5) and became incarnate with the name of the man, Yahshua. (Philippians 2:7-8)
Messiah in the flesh had been given the name Yahshua, (Matthew 1:21) and after his resurrection, he inherited a new spiritual name,YahwehShua. (Hebrews 1:4) Messiah was born of a woman and was under the old covenant law. (Galatians 4:4) He was therefore subject to Deuteronomy 29:20:
“Yahweh[the Father] will not spare him, but then the anger of Yahweh and his jealousy show smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and Yahweh shall blot out his name from under heaven.”
Because Messiah was under the law and never sinned, he could not avoid this penalty (Galatians 3: 13) when he died in our sin. Because he became sin for all mankind, (2 Corinthians 5:21) his human name was defiled with ALL the sin of mankind. He could not appear before the Father with a defiled name.
His Father could not get near him as long as he had a defiled human name. This is why we are told this in Matthew 27:46: “and about the ninth hour Yahshua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli Eli, lama sabachthani, that is to say, My El, My El, why hast thou forsaken me?
Up until that moment, the Father and his Son were one. (John 10:30)
But at the moment of his defilement, the Father left him, turning his back on him. This was predicted in Psalm 22:1: “My El, My El, why hast out forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?”
This was a very dark moment for Messiah. He knew it was coming, which was why he had such a strong emotional reaction when he was praying in the garden of Gethsemane. His emotional pain that he experienced at that time was manifested physically in his perspiration mixed with blood. (Luke 22:44) He went through all of this for us!
We must understand the difference between his human name and his inherited name. False teachers will try to deceive you by saying his human name was Jesus, Yahushua, or Yeshua. Yahshua is the correct rendering of Messiah’s human name, but it is NOT the name of salvation.
It was our high priest, YahwehShua, who appeared before Father Yahweh. (Zechariah 3) We have a pattern for this appearance in Exodus 28:36-38) The Levitical high priest was required to have the full Tetragrammaton on his forehead when he entered the holy of holies. This requirement was patterned after the order of Melchizedek. Messiah was the priest of that order who appeared to Abraham in Genesis 14.
The Levitical high priest was required to appear with the full name of Yahweh on his forehead. Failure to follow this scripture would result in his death. Notice in Revelation 14:1 that 144,000 firstfruits did have the name of the Father and his Son on their foreheads. The name of salvation on their foreheads is YahwehShua, Yahweh Savior. A man’s name would not have satisfied this scriptural requirement.
Messiah’s human name, Yahshua, is the correct translation of his Hebrew name. Even that name does not contain the full name of Yahweh, yod,hey, waw, hey. The name, Yahshua, has only a partial Tetragrammaton, yod, hey, and waw. The scripture is quite clear. Exodus 20:36 says, “Holiness to Yahweh“ and does not use a partial rendering of the great name of Yahweh. The name of salvation must contain all four letters of the Tetragrammaton.
Any group or individual that teaches that the full name of Yahweh is not required is leading you astray. They are assuming the role of the lawyers in Luke 11:52 that Messiah warned us about. They are hiding the key of knowledge.
The names of Jesus, Yeshua, or Y’shua do not have a linguistic link to the Tetragrammaton. Yet, there are those who still teach that these names can still be translated as Yahweh saves. That is a false understanding. Even the correct human name of Messiah, Yahshua, does not have a full linguistic link to the name Yahweh. His human name only contains the yod, hey, and waw, while the second hey is missing. This means that Yahshua can only be translated as YAH saves and NOT YAHWEH SAVES.
Another problem is this. When the incarnate Messiah died, he had the name of Yahshua, YAH SAVES. That name was defiled and therefore blotted out as required by Deuteronomy 29:20. If that name could be correctly rendered as Yahweh, then the great name of Yahweh would be defiled and that is not possible. Yahweh’s name cannot be defiled. This is why Messiah was given a human name and human body.
To avoid the defilement of Yahweh in any way, Messiah was given a human body with the human name. That body and name were prepared for the sacrifice he was making. (Hebrews 10:5) This is just another example of how well Yahweh planned the process of salvation. We are told in Revelation 13:8 that the Messiah was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The Father knew the end from the beginning. Nothing was left to chance.
Even though I’ve shown how Yahshua cannot be both the name of reconciliation and the name of salvation, many will still struggle with this. Yah is used about 46 times in the Old Testament. Yahweh is used nearly 7000 times. Yah is used about .6 % compared to the full Tetragrammaton. Yah is never called the savior. That distinction is only reserved for the full name of Yahweh.
Messiah was hung on a tree. He was born of a woman and born under the law. It was only after he died that his blood was poured out. (John 19:33- 34) He died in sin, that is, he became sin. (2 Corinthians 5:21) His blood absorbed all the sin of mankind. He sacrificed his human life for us. His life was in the blood. (Leviticus 17:11) His human name, Yahshua, identifies that blood. It too became defiled by all that sin. That name had to be replaced before Messiah could appear before his Father.
Consider this message that Paul reveals to us in Romans 5:10: “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yahweh by the death of his son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” Paul continues in Colossians 1:20 with this insight into reconciliation: “and having made peace through the blood of his beam, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth or things in heaven.”
Being reconciled means being acquitted of sin. This is a free gift not just for the firstfruits, but also for all mankind and angels. Reconciliation is not the same as salvation. Salvation refers to the inheritance of the kingdom. All beings are reconciled, but not all receive an inheritance. All mankind will receive age-abiding life. Once in the new heavens and earth, that age-abiding life will be transformed into actual deathlessness.
Reconciliation is not dependent on repentance. It is a free gift. Salvation is dependent on repentance, baptism and the receiving of the Holy Spirit of the Father. This is a significant difference between reconciliation and salvation. There is also a significant difference between the human name of Yahshua and the inherited name of faith, YahwehShua. They are not interchangeable. The human name was created to be defiled. The inherited name allows those called to be firstfruits to receive the Spirit of the Father so they can form the Spirit of Messiah. Without forming the full Spirit of Messiah, they cannot overcome and become one of the 144,000.
The name Yahshua cannot save, only reconcile. Only the name of YahwehShua leads to salvation. It is a better to say that Yahshua reconciles the heavens and earth through his blood. Once Messiah accomplices this reconciliation, the name, Yahshua, is blotted out. It offers no further benefit.
The inherited name of YahwehShua must now accomplish salvation. You will not find the name of YahwehShua in the Scriptures. It is the name of faith and not sight. (Hebrews 11:1) We do find the name of Yahshua because it has nothing to do with salvation. Salvation is not a free gift and therefore requires acceptance of the Father’s invitation and then overcoming to the end. Only those being called by the Father have the name of faith revealed to them.
Those being called must free themselves from the limitations of the old covenant. They must truly embrace the new covenant. However, this can only occur through baptism in the name of YahwehShua and the forming of the Spirit of Messiah. It is Messiah in us that allows us to fully comprehend and embrace the new covenant.
The human name of Yahshua was the name associated with the blood sacrifice. This name was blotted out of the book of life, but is found in the Scriptures. The inherited name of YahwehShua, was blotted out in the Scriptures, but is found in the book of life. This name is revealed by the Father, not just discovered on one’s own. This is the name of life that can only be embraced by faith and not by sight. The name of Yahshua allows for reconciliation, but YahwehShua is the revealed name whereby we must be saved.
Yahshua represents flesh and blood. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:50, “that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahweh.”The inherited name is the name of life that Messiah received after his resurrection to life. It is this name that we must have to have life in the better resurrection which then leads to our inheritance in the kingdom.
Romans 5:10 can be better understood with this amplified translation:
“We were reconciled to Yahweh by the death of his son, [Yahshua]much more, being reconciled we shall be saved by his life.”(YAHWEHSHUA)
The name, Yahshua, was defiled with all human sin and according to Scripture was blotted out. This name was blotted out of heaven and no longer has relevance. If you desire to have life in the better resurrection, the name of YahwehShua is what you should be seeking.
Yes, having the right name is of vast significance. If this is your invitation from the Father, consider our website carefully as well as our offer of assistance. Your decision will affect where you will be in the new heavens and earth.
Remember, it is Yahweh Saves or Savior. Accept NO substitute!
