Sarah, You said "I was saying that a person can get a good idea of the pronounciation of the Tetragrammaton using a Strong's Concordance because it explains how some of the biblical names that contain God's name are spoken.
Yes, the name is recorded in the Scriptures. Many bibles inaccurately transliterate the name as Jehovah or Yahweh, but that doesn't stop people from using those names."
Sarah, on the one hand you appear quite knowledgable about these things. You say you are looking to the OT for the 'name of God' and it was written in Hebrew and some Aramaic...not Greek. And your involvement with HR suggests you know full well what the Tetragrammaton is about because you capitalise the T.
Further, you said you use Strong's as your source for learning all these things. Strong's Does NOT mention the Tetragrammaton. So where did you get it from?
From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.
The name was translated as Jehovah into English. Yet you say it is all inaccurate and wrong.
How would you know that, Sarah, unless you are going by firsthand knowledge of Biblical Hebrew, and the original fragments or Masoretic text? Are you capable of actually translating from the original manuscripts into English? Or are you going by what a HR or messianic teacher told you? Since nazarite.net is a compilation of many I have written about and exposed including Michael Rood, how would you define your affiliation with that and Followers of Yah, and other messianic/Hr sources?
You also mention the theophoric names which means you should know that, Yeho or Jeho is the prefix form of "YHWH" used in Hebrew theophoric names, with the the suffix form being Yah or "-Yeh .
Yet, you never deny the names you have used for God and Jesus that wrongly start with Yahu....
These are some of the contradictions that come through time and again. And I think it would be a good thing if you explained yourself on these things. Because you totally dismiss these issues that are and have been brought up repeatedly and it's simply time for you to answer I think.
If those are your friends and sources of doctrine at least have the courage to acknowledge that publicly because it is already public on those sites. It makes no difference to me, as you will still be refuted when in error or promoting false doctrine, but at least you would come across a little more forthright.
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.
