ALSO, please note that in the commentary and footnotes found
in good Study Holy Bible Versions, you can find information about this name, Yahweh
and title, Elohim.
Elohim is the correct title to use instead of God
which the scholars and publishers have substituted. By using the correct name and title it gives the reader a more understandable
and correct reading of the scripture.
In the writings of Moses we find these words:
Moses said to Elohim, “Behold, when I come to the children of Israel,
and tell them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you;’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ What should I tell them?”
Yahweh said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM,” and he said, “You shall tell the children of
Israel this: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
Yahweh said moreover to Moses, “You shall tell the children of Israel this, ‘Yahweh, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim
of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever,
and this is my memorial to all generations.
The name, is it "the LORD," "GOD," or is it "Yahweh?"
This is absolutely a crucial matter from the stand point of understanding the meaning of what is actually written in the bible.
This is what some commentators have written,
Lord and God are titles that may are used as names for a particular office, position or elevated
status. But the name, YAHWEH, is the personal sacred name of our
Heavenly Father who is Pure Spirit (Immaculate Parent Substance), also identified as ETERNITY
and referred to as EVERLASTING. And
in the above passage of scripture, we have heard what Yahweh said to Moses about His name.
We should also note that during the history of the
Hebrew nation many of the people and their priests deliberately rejected the name of Yahweh.
long shall this be in the heart of the prophets/ministers that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets/teachers of the deceit
of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every
man to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal [this heathen name means, "LORD"].
The prophet that hath
a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?
the Lord Yahweh.
So, let's do a little recap: we know "God" is a title that has been used as a name, but
unfortunately the translators, most of the time, have chosen to not use the correct Hebrew title, Elohim, which is the title
Yahweh chose to use for Himself.
Please note that in the above
quote, EXODUS 3:13-15, how the term God is used, and that Moses asked for a name eventhough "God" or
Elohim was used over and over in that conversation. This clearly shows us that Moses did not consider the term "God" or Elohim
to be the name. But to give you some insight into this concern, we suggest you look into any good study bible and read
the commentary or footnotes where the name and title are explained.
At this time please notice this excerpt of the commentary notes (a direct quote) taken from a King James Study Bible,
Thomas Nelson, printed in Colombia, 1988.***
It is very common for people to assume that it is not important to
honor the Heavenly Father by using His true original name, Yahweh, but this is a very great mistake. We aught to consider
very carefully what has been recorded by Moses. Remember that Yahweh said His name was to be "a Memorial to all generations"
And "Forever to all generations."
