About the Name


About the Name

From another feed the question was asked;

Did Yahshua speak our Father’s personal name?

My response was;

The Better question is did YHWH command His personal name?

The answer is Yes – In Commandment & Covenant

Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of YHWH thy Elohim in vain; for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

07723. awv shav’, shawv
or shav {shav}; from the same as 7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjective), uselessness (as deceptive, objective; also adverbially, in vain):–false(-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.

vain = shav’ = uselessness ie non-use

The Aaronic Benediction

Num 6:22 And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
Num 6:24 YHWH bless thee, and keep thee:
Num 6:25 YHWH make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
Num 6:26 YHWH lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Num 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

Saying Adonai makes this an Ironic Benediction

Its NOT what Moses wrote!


Then was posed

@ What about when satan tempted Yeshua in the wilderness when Yeshua said, “…It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your Elohim.”

My response;

S— Excellent point – @ What about when satan tempted Yeshua in the wilderness when Yeshua said, “…It is written again, You shall not tempt YHWH your Elohim.”

**Mt 4:7 Yahshua said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

direct quote?

Dt 6:16 Ye shall not tempt YHWH your Elohim, as ye tempted him in Massah.

** Lk 4:8 And Yahshua answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the ‘Lord thy God’, and him only shalt thou serve.

direct quote?

Dt 6:13 Thou shalt fear YHWH your Elohim, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name

Dt 10:20 Thou shalt fear YHWH your Elohim; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

LORD in Mosaic Hebrew = YHWH – Yahweh

LORD thy God = YHWH / Yahweh – God = Elohim

Tho Mt 4:7 & Lu 4:8 are conveyed in Greek – The direct quote of Yahshua is Deut. Hebrew

Meaning that;
Yahshua did speak the Father’s Name YHWH – Yahweh

Did you catch that?

“and shalt swear by his name”

“and swear by his name.”

From Torah – From the verses Quoted by Yahshua

So should we use His Name? – Respectfully YES!



Yahshua did not follow the Rabbinic Tradition regarding the ban on speaking the Name! We all know what He said about the Pharisee’s vain traditions!


Did some more research
יְהוֹשֻׁעַ יְהוֹשׁוּעַ
yehôshûa‛ yehôshûa‛
yeh-ho-shoo’-ah, yeh-ho-shoo’-ah
From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: – Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare H1954, H3442.
This does seem to uphold the extra ‘o’ or ‘u’ sound – however as I have said this leaves no opening for the usha written or vocalized pronunciation
Gen_49:18 I have waitedH6960 for thy salvation,H3444 O YHWH.H3068
Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Again shua Not usha
So –
Yahweh/Ah/ah and Yahshua can become
Yahuweh/Ah/ah and Yahushua but never usha
Barring ‘usha’ you do have a choice within these confines



Ex.32 Revealed


Let’s start with the fact that;

Ex.32 is the place where the Israelites stopped circumcising their new born sons for the rest of Torah and Beyond.

For those saying ‘that’s not biblical’, etc. – Watch this;

1st of all; my use of the term ‘Torah’ is limited to the original definition being the 1st 5 books of the Bible – The words of YHWH as written by Moses – Attested to by the TaNaK – T standing for Torah.

Therefore the book of Joshua (the beyond part) cannot be Torah

Jos 5:5 States – Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.

Meaning that at some point ‘as they came forth out of Egypt’ – ‘in the wilderness’ – (The book of Joshua alone) IDing the 40yrs of wandering – These Israelites stopped circumcising their new born sons for the rest of Torah – and Beyond – into;

Jos 5:2 Was the com’d stating – At that time YHWH said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.

Which begs the question – When was the First? The First was Gen.17, but they broke it – When they made the ‘Gold Calf’ and broke the Covenant they had circumcised for (Rom.2:25) & promised to keep (Ex.24:7-8).

Ex 32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I
may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

This was YHWH’s solution to fix Israel’s Covenant breach – wipe out all of Israel and start over with the only one to keep the Melchizedek standing – Moses. But Moses resisted – did not go along and pleaded for the people. YHWH’s concession to Moses included the people being thrust under the Levitical Preisthood (Ex.40 / Num.3:12; 8:17) and its additional (Gal.3:19) Laws (Heb.7:11).

Now what would they circumcise into? a broken covenant?

I further submit that from Jos.5:2 on; including the balance of the TaNaK and the whole of the New Testament. That any circumcision adherence thought to be attached to Gen.17 (the Melchizedek Com’d which was violated to the point of Yahweh declaring it ‘broke’ Jer.31:32) is actually attached to this 2nd command that is squarely announced under the Levitical Priesthood (Heb.7:11).

Heb 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people
received the law,) …

Ex 32 was only 4 1/2 months into the program from Egypt (Ex.19:1) – At the beginning of what would be (because of further disobedience) the 40yrs of wandering.

They were to be a Nation ‘of’ Melchizedek Priests (Ex.19:5-6) – They would now be a Nation ‘with’ Levitical Priests (Num.3:12; 8:17)

That did not circumcise again until Jos.5:2

Do you know what that means?

Everything btx Ex.32 and Jos.5:2 was done (increasingly uncircumcised) while not circumcising

Leviticus, Tzitzits (Num.15:38), Writing the Law on stones (Dt.27), The Book of the Law (Dt.31.26), etc., the events of Jos.1, 2, 3, 4 and a chunk of Jos.5 – while uncircumcised

Jos 5:6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of YHWH: unto whom YHWH sware that he would not shew them the land, which YHWH sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Today; in this Melchizedek era, for those New Testament / Gospel / Torah believers that will decide (as a religious observance) to physically circumcise; know that you are being obedient to the 2nd command of Jos.5:2 (after a 40 year circumcision lapse – Jos.5:5) under the Levitical Priesthood and not obedient to (said obedience issuing from) the 1st command of Gen.17 under the Melkizedeq Priesthood. For the 1st Com’d was broken, with a 40yr. lapse giving rise and need for a 2nd Com’d.

There is not much direct Bible verbiage on this – All indications are that Abraham received the Melkizedeq mantel from YHWH’s Cov’t at Gen.15 (or some assert from Shem at Gen.14) – Then to Issac, Then to Jacob/Israel, Then to Joseph as Gen. 48:19 & :22 would suggest.

At any rate YHWH gave the Melkizedeq mantel to ALL of Israel – IF;

Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

They said – Exo 19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that YHWH hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto YHWH. – And again at Ex.24:7

But They Broke the Cov’t in 40 days @ Ex.32

And were thrust into/under a Levitical Priesthood instead (Num.3:12/Heb.7:11)

And at that point ( Ex.32 by Jos.5:5) stopped circumcising for the next 40+yrs.


The point of Atonement


The point of Atonement

The point of the 10th day of the 7th Month Day of Atonement

The point of the Sacrifice (we no longer do), Made by Fire (we no longer do) was to seek Atonement as as the 2 goats (we no longer do) attest to especially in the looking for the red thread to turn white (we no longer do)

We should keep the Day of Atonement as an Annual Shabbat Convocation as per Lev.23:4

However we that believe on Yahshua; need to believe in the change of the Law (Heb.7:12) and the change of the Priesthood (Heb.7:12/1Ptr.2:9) foretold at Gen.49:10

We have 1 of 2 choices to make – Either we adhere to completely (that is truly obey) Lev.16:29-30 & 23:27-28 & Num.29:7 – Striving to attain Atonement.

Under the Levitical Priesthood

Which was/is to 1] afflict your souls (taken to mean fasting), 2] Make a Sacrifice (we no longer do), 3] Made by Fire (we no longer do) was to seek Atonement as the 4] 2 goats (we no longer do) attest to especially in the 5] looking for the red thread to turn white (we no longer do).

You can’t pick and choose

Jms 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Therefore just choosing to Fast without a Sacrifice – by Fire, etc. is that “guilty of all” indictment.


You can accept Gen.49:10 (Gal.3:19/1Ptr.2:9/Heb.7:12) returning us to be Under the Melkizedeq Priesthood

You can repent; ask forgivenesses and Thank YHWH for sending His Son to satisfy so many issues; Saviour, Redeemer, Go`el, Lamb, Advocate, Melkizedeq High Priest, Mediator, Covenant Ratifier, etc. – 1 of which was to be that/our Atonement

Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yah by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. :11 And not only so, but we also joy in Yah through Yahshua Messiah, by whom we have now received the **atonement**.

Why would we strive for that which we already have received?

And at that say we strive (a double speak) to keep the Torah instruction? But not according to the context of the Levitical Torah Command?

While Ignoring the fact of the reality of what Gen.49:10 represents; That –

It is NOT a change ‘of’ Torah to enact the change ‘in’ Torah.

Atonement Blessings




Something to consider

Lev 23:27  Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation to you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto YHWH.

“convocation” – It is a Shabbat (v:32) – We are to assemble

Clearly no fire is involved -or- 2 goats (Lev.16:5-22) in modern Atonement proceedings –  2 clear Torah commandment breaks / instruction secessions – (itself an enacted yet denied ‘CHANGE’!).

“ … afflictH6031 (H853) your souls:H5315 …”  – Means Fasting?

(Given in the book ‘Back to the Melchizedek Future’)  – You’ll need to look up the Definitions and Roots – understanding that;

It is understood that the verbiage before the ‘ :- ‘ sign is the definition. While the verbiage after the ‘ :- ‘ sign is what the translators have taken that word to mean.

Fast – from H6684 – צוּם – tsu^m – tsoom
A primitive root; to cover over (the mouth), that is, to fast: –  X at all, fast.

Fasting – from H6685  –  צום – tso^m  – tsome
From H6684; a fast: – fast (-ing).

These Hebrew words – ‘tsum’ or ‘tsom’ do not occur in Torah; being the first 5 books (of Moses) – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.  Do not occur in Lev.23:27 or Num.29:7.

Hence; ‘afflictH6031 (H853) your souls:H5315 ‘ seems more correctly to mean – to declare – enunciate that is to testify to ie  confess ones short comings i.e. sin (by implication Lev.16:30).

The Day of Atonement is not mentioned before or in the Melchizedek Book of the Covenant (Ex.19:5-24:8 – Gal.3:15). The New Testament (the events of Melchizedek renewal) state that Yahshua is the atonement – 1Jn.1:3; 7, Rom.5:11, Col.3:15, Php.2:2, Jn.17:11; 20-23, etc. There is no mention in Torah that those before or Noah, Shem, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel or Jacob’s physical 12 sons (for whom the Tribes of Israel are named) ever had a ‘day of atonement’ and with that an injunction to fast.

Rom 4:16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all. –

Obviously ‘the faith of Abraham’ is not of Levitical Law – (Gal.3:10; 17-19, Heb.7:11)

Rom 5:10  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yah by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. :11 And not only so, but we also joy in Yah through Yahshua Messiah, by whom we have now received the **atonement**.

Atonements were mentioned during the 40 days while Moses was on top of Mt. Sinai receiving the ‘added’ Law before the Israelites broke the Covenant; but eating was required (Aaron and Sons Ex.29:32-33 / compared to [Lev.7:5-6; 10:17]). A general Atonement was to be made once a year (nondescript of a 10th day of the 7th month – Ex.30:10); and a ransom for your souls was to be paid (Ex.30:12-16). But no mention of ‘fasting’ (or afflicting your soul) in a 7th month ‘Atonement’.

We will never fully know what the Melchizedek Atonement would have been or looked like; for the Israelites broke the Covenant in just a few days. Fasting (purportedly from ‘afflict your souls’ – Lev. 16:29-31; 23:27) ‘in the seventh month’ was not given till Leviticus; clearly after the Melchizedek Covenant break of Ex.32 and the subsequent Levitical Priesthood injunction & its imposed laws. (Ezk.20:25/Heb.9:10)
