RE: What's the True Name of God?
Sarah when you use the phrase the 'tetragrammaton' you are going beyond the name of God in the Scriptures, which was written as Adonai for the people who believed it too sacred to speak. People reverenced and feared God, especially after they were allowed to feel His presence.
Deu 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
Deu 18:16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
Deu 18:17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
Deu 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
Deu 18:19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. [/b]
They didn't just flippantly say His name or use it as a 'normal' word. It is believed by those who use the term tetragrammaton within Judaism's kabbalah, that knowing the 'true' name of God also means having power, those who 'knew' the name were holy and more spiritual than others.
Quoting again from one of my articles> http://www.seekgod.ca/practicalkab.htm
Quote:Much of the interpretation and mystical practices of the oral Torah are related to the Name of God. The Tetragrammaton or Schem Hamphorasch refers to what Kabbalists and many Orthodox Jews call the Ineffable Name. The four-lettered name of God, in Hebrew is, "yod, he, vau, he", or in English capitals YHVH, although some occult sources say it's IHVH. Others also state that the YHVH is "yood, hey, vood, hey." According to various writings, the true ancient pronunciation is now unknown since it has been believed that the Name was too sacred to be written or pronounced by the profane. In reading the sacred writings, the term 'Adonai' was substituted for that reason. That teaching is also why Hebrew Roots and Messianic adherents write God as "G-d."
You see Sarah, many of your posts permeate gnostic concepts or under Christian doctrine, heresy. You seem to be tossed to and fro by the things you post and go after every wind of doctrine, either with or without understanding why it is incorrect based on the Scriptures.
The pursuit of the tetragrammaton can only be put into the perspective of those who call it that and also desire the same knowledge, and the beliefs surrounding it. Yehovah or Jehovah are recognised as the closest and most accurate pronunciation in english from the OT, as shown in Exodus 6:2,3. God was the translated word for Elohiym, etc. Hebrew or aramaic into English in the OT. But in the NT and under the New Covenant, God gave Jesus as the way to know Him, and said at the name of Jesus--in English rather than Koine Greek---that every knee will bow.
Sarah you never seem to be satisfied with the Truth as found in the Scriptures. You always appear to want that extra bit of info that comes from outside the Scriptures and then apply it and try to make the Scriptures fit that doctrine. That's called being gnostic. What Mary is saying is accurate, based on your posts and what we know based on the Scriptures and information on the tetragrammaton historically and factually. You really need to sort through your beliefs and start hearing what is being said to you Scripturally and factually.
You appear to feel you are here to teach everyone what you have learned in '9' or 2 or 3 yrs depending which post we refer back to, as sheep had pointed out to you. The contradictions, as noted by Mary and Rose, are throughout all the threads you post to. But Sarah, while every person who believes Jesus Christ can edify and encourage one another, you don't even seem to know who Jesus Christ is and deny His divinity and so on.
The Scriptures say, aside from your off base doctrinal issues that are so apparent to other Christians, that as older Christians--and I can claim that having been a believer for over 35 years, and still have so much to learn-- as you have presented your beliefs on so many issues in such a way as to appear to teach us the 'truth', but Sarah, maturity in Christ comes over time, and discernment between truth and error comes from spending time studying the Word and applying it to discern between truth and error, good and evil by full use of the Scriptures as the litmus test.
Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
That is why time and again you have posted error, and it has been refuted; you have sourced heretical writings and doctrine and posted them, and they have been refuted, and so on, but it does not seem to make an impact on you at all. You just move forward on to the next item on your 'list'. I just get the feeling that you are so set in your beliefs which you developed somewhat on your own and also in the forums like Followers of Yah, and nazarite.net, that you have this mission to convey all the heresies from there and never hear anything we might say to show it all for what it is. False doctrine. I don't want to offend you Sarah, but I want to be honest with you and say what I think is important for you to hear. I hope you can receive it.
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
