Yahweh-ra-ah11, Yahweh tsidkenu12. Yahweh shalom13, Yahweh sabaoth14, and Yahweh jireh15, the Name in each case is Yahweh, coupled with a distinctive characteristic. The Scriptures are specific and leave no doubt about the importance of His Name and our responsibilities concerning it.

"I am Yahweh: that is My Name, and My glory will I not give to another (name) neither My praise to graven images".16

"Oh Yahweh, Thy Name abideth for ages; Oh Yahweh, Thy memorial is to generation after generation"17

"If Yahweh be Elohim, follow Him; And if Baal (the Lord) then follow Him"18

"How long shall it be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? Yea they are prophets of the deceit of theirown heart, which think to cause My people to forget My Name-as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal (the Lord)"19

"I will take the names of Baalim (Lords) out of her mouth and they shall no more be remembered by their name"20

"I will declare Thy Name unto my brethren, in the midst of the congregation will I sing praise unto Thee"21

"And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the Name of Yahweh shall be saved"22

"And they that know Thy Name will put their trust in Thee23

"Thus saith Yahweh, the maker thereof, Yahweh that formed it, Yahweh is the Name; Call unto Me and I will answer thee and show thee great and hidden things which thou knowest not".24

"I have manifested Thy Name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world"25

"And I have declared unto them Thy Name and will declare it"26

"Hallowed be Thy Name"27

The Sacred Name of the Messiah, Yahshua, is the only Name by which He was known to His disciples, though He has several titles such as Rabbi, Son of Man, Saviour, Anointed, and King of Kings.

"What is His Name and what is His Son's Name, if thou canst tell?"28

His Name is composed of two parts: Yah-Hoshua (Saviour). Thus, the contraction Yahshua signifies Yahweh-Saviour and strikingly bears out the logic of Matthew 1:21,

"And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His Name YAHSHUA: for He shall save His people from their sins."

"I am come in My Father's Name and ye receive Me not--"29
