Word Time: Repost, an important edit.

Paraphrasing YH’shua, “the way, the life, the truth”, will guard you and keep you, a word to the faithful.

To a question that is broad in it’s effect, with respect to cultural impacts in Bible translation. And it goes like this, “has the replacement of the Tetragrammaton YHWH, for the title L-rd, changed an original truth? In glancing at the definitions of the word L-rd, below, we can begin to see how this, though not the only change, has come to pass.

A more distinct answer, however, can be seen in a  Messiah that believed and defended the 10 commandments. Protected by all prophets, including YH’shua, the commandments are the core tenants of Judeo-Christian belief, the meaning of the Name, for example, becoming self-evident in it’s definition. YHWH: “I Am that I Am, or I Am what I Will Do”, in essence, is the Name that becomes much more than that of a white bearded g-d like man who demands you to spell his name correctly, folly: A Name that refers to “the Word and Works, “I Am What I Will Do”, of the Creator source”, rather than high vanity in high places.

Non Hebrew points of view, such as that which surrounds a disobedient Israel that history and the Bible argues fell to, that of Greek, Mesopotamian, Egyptian idols, conjuring up images that somehow connect with an original Bible culture. The prophets leading up to YH’shua confronted these realities pointing back to the original ways, still, a people who had great difficulty dedicating themselves to that past, repeatedly enculturated into the nations, the new, but who retained aspects of the past, their culture, ie: religion, 10 commandments, that in time looked quite different than the way, the truth, the life. They assimilate aspects of surrounding nations, incorporating mysticism, idol worship, and so Archaeology tells us, but so to the Bible. The varied identities of their ‘Elohiym and what we see today in Christianity and Islam, man made or mystical renditions that fly in the face of the original ten and commandments; renditions of pagan societies.

The lesson? One should not take YHWH, the Word and Works of the ‘Elohiym of Adam to YH’shua, in vain, nor any other commandments of ten. If and when we do pause and look around us, and see what has come of short changing the highest wisdom in existence, and again, what Daniel and others warned, a desolation of same.

The truth is not something to be taken lightly in the face of Biblical and Secular (the Sciences) evidence, I include history as well. 

My hope here is that you never see the Name of  YHWH the same, but instead consider, in careful ‘meditation’ (siyach: prayer, etc..) what YHWH ‘Elohiym meant when he told Moses, ” I am that which I will do”. 

The prophets said as much.

Messiah defends the 10 commandments!

Prophets defended yet man offended. Soon enough changes were amiss amongst the Jewish Elite who by their own admission declared the Name unspeakable but once a year, that in time the Name became the L-rd, a name that now looked more like a product of Greek culture rather than it’s own Hebrew roots, decisions made by Jewish Elite to incorporate other culture, a replay of a Biblical Israel, a culture of idols, a replacement of YHWH for a L-rd that eventually would prove to break with the first three commandments uttered by their ‘Elohiym to Moses, the 3rd of the ten, “though shall not take the Name (YHWH: the Name, Word and Works, of the ‘Elohiym of Adam to YH’shua) in vain”, stricken from the record lending Hebrew culture to concepts /images of other religions; regardless the prophets warned not to go there. Do you recognize this in your Bibles and places of worship? The images /idols? The missing name of YHWH /it’s replacement?

Today this is true of the 3 Abrahamic religions, one could argue, with exception to a minuscule minority, this group is made up of seekers of Biblical truths, those who are in search of an original Bible narrative, that they may follow it, indeed humble themselves (bow in Hebrew) as did the Biblical prophets.

Most Jews today bow to a stone wall, Christians to a cross – or other idol, and Islam to four walls. Who will you bow to? Hopefully only that which the Creator intended. Today more than ever the tools are available: The warning? One day there will be no excuse to not have made that effort.

And have hope, said YH’shua.

The hope that comes from nearing an original truth, a source that you can count on, not that which, though is enticing, doesn’t exist. A place of repair and recuperation not emptiness and confusion, a move from the ways of the ‘World’ (chedel: the state of the dead, etc..) to the state of the living, the born again.

The truth is, “salvation is here now”, said YH’shua, a reality that earns great expectation and hope.

YH’shua argued for, “the way, the life, the truth”, proving a life-philosophy that acts to keep us whole and prospering in the now, regardless what may come. A message that we are not helpless, that yes we can, given our Creator’s given-abilities, to yield perfect outcomes. Hope in the power of the highest Wisdom in the universe. In this, that peace, health, and prosperity fill our days and the days of those near to us.

Now to the original intent of the above pic, take a moment and reread it please. (Or see it here: Joshua 1:9).

For those who have made room for YHWH, this will be trivial, otherwise, this is what the culturally correct meaning is telling us:

That if we humble ourselves to the ‘L-rd’ (YHWH: the Name, Word and Works, of the ‘Elohiym of Adam to YH’shua), YHWH ‘Elohiym will instruct us and guide us through life, wherever we may be that there too YHWH may be.

Paraphrasing Kind David, “though I walk through ‘the valley of the dead’ (the ‘world’: ha-chedel: the state of the dead), I shall fear no evil”.

Always in YH’shua (YH saves).

Significance of the Name of the ‘Elohiym of Adam to YH’shua (An original narrative):

‘L-rd’ YHWH (I AM WHAT I AM):

“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,”..” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_that_I_Am

The name that is the Word and Works of Abraham’s ‘Elohiym! The ‘spirit’ (ruwach: expression, etc..) of the ‘Elohiym of Adam to YH’shua (YHWH). Used as an emphatic statement, that of YH’s wisdom in action, what ‘spirit’ is, (ruwach: expression, etc..), as seen in YH’s ‘angels’ (heavenly messengers, ambassadors, etc..); appointed men, women, and prophets, leading to ‘YH’shua’ (YH Saves). (See: John 14:12).

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