QUESTION: Why should we get used to the name of YAHWEH instead of YAHSHUA?
ANSWER: The name of YAHWEH is the name of the Almighty God. All through the Old Testament the word God is YAHWEH. However, as He refers to His ministry, He says in the 43rd chapter of Isaiah, if we had out Bible translated it would read like this: “Thus saith EL who created thee oh Jacob, who formed thee oh Israel. I have redeemed thee and called thee out.” EL is a name for God, IsraEL, ELohim plural names for God. He is plural only as He had many children. He goes on: “I have redeemed thee. Thou art mine. As thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee. As thou passeth through the waters they shall not overflow thee. As thou passeth through the fire neither shall flame come upon thee. For I am YAHWEH thy EL the Holy One of Israel, thy YAHSHUA, Saviour.” Thus YAHSHUA is the name translated as Jesus in the New Testament. As the Angel Gabriel came to Mary, he said: “This one you will bear call His name YAHSHUA, for He shall save His people from their sins.” The word God, Saviour is YAHSHUA. Thus standing among the congregation he judges among the mighty or the Elohim, which is Gods plural. Thus we are the Elohim, spiritual children.
