Significance of the Name of Israel’s ‘Elohiym:

YH old to oldest YHWH (YH):

“Moses says: May I say who sent me? He asks for ‘God’s‘ [‘Elohiym’s] name. The Israelites will want to know who has sent me, and ‘God’ [‘Elohiym] replies with a sentence, “Ehyeh asher ehyeh.” This is a first person sentence that can be translated, “I am who I am”, or perhaps, “I will be who I will be,”..

“I WILL BE WHO I WILL BE”. The name that is what the Creator is /does! The Name that calls us to be together (a Body) in it. May it be so in YH’shua.

May, “YHWH bless you and keep you!” Numbers 6: 24-26
