If You Know Him, Then What Is His Name?
Most Bible believers live a lifetime without ever seeing the glaring inconsistency in their approach to the Creator of the universe. Unlike other major world religions, whose adherents use a specific name for their deity, the name employed exclusively for the Heavenly Father worshiped in Christianity is a common and generic title, or titles. While the heathen faithful understand exactly whom they worship, millions of churchgoers call on and worship their Creator by the everyday terms lord and god, and then proceed to ask, "Do you know Him?"
The obvious fact is, churchianity has neglected the Heavenly Father’s revealed, personal Name. Many don’t even realize that He has a name, believing that the title God is a name because it is captialized. All the while they accept the fact that thousands of different denominations are worshiping under these same titles but with a plethora of contradictory beliefs and practices. Which leads one to ask, do they themselves really know Him?
Identify and Know Your Heavenly Father!
Aside from these contradictions, is the sacred Name of the Heavenly Father really that important? Does it matter what you call Him? Does He even need to have a name for proper worship, as the deities of all other religions do? Some believe that He knows who you mean no matter what you call Him. But have they considered that refusing to revere His personal Name demonstrates dishonor for the One they worship, as well as blatant defiance of His Word? He tells us precisely that in Malachi 2:2.
How many Bible believers would fall on their knees in times of desperation and call out to Baal? Or Vishnu? Or Molech? Obviously it DOES matter what name you use in worship. Names DO mean something. Names identify a particular entity who has particular traits and is worshiped in a specific manner and who (supposedly) responds in specific ways to well-defined and proper worship.
By calling on names like Vishnu and Buddha, you have conjured up a certain deity who must not be confused with the Almighty of the Bible. How can one expect the true Heavenly Father to respond to names of pagan worship? More importantly, how close is He to those who refuse His personal Name, deciding that a mere title is sufficient – a title suited for an identity lost in a sea of conflicting doctrines and beliefs? Is a title good enough for the true Mighty One when that same title can just as easily refer to other pagan deities? Notice the following.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol [is] nothing in the world, and that [there is] none other Elohim but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many, and lords many), But to us [there is but] one Elohim, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and one Master Yahshua, by whom [are] all things, and we by him" (1Cor. 8:4-6).
If there are many gods and lords, how can you distinguish the one worshiped with one of those titles? Regardless of the arguments and excuses people will use, Yahweh the true Father says He is jealous for His Name, and He will not allow praises to graven images that proceed from common titles, Isaiah 42:8.
Intimacy of Names
We in our Western civilization have nearly lost the significance of names. For us, Johnny is just as good as Tommy. But even then we may be influenced to choose a name for our child based on someone we know who had a particular name. In that case the name is connected to a person – maybe a father or grandfather or uncle – whose very personality and attributes come to mind when the name is spoken or referred to.
Nowhere is this more true than in Scripture. In fact, names have much greater significance when it comes to the Bible. This is particularly so with the One we worship as the Creator and Sustainer of this universe. Philippians 2:9 says His Name Yahweh is above EVERY name. No matter what we may think or want to believe, calling on His true Name is critically important to Him.
His Name reveals His special identity. He alone is the one known by His special people as the true Mighty One called Yahweh. You don’t mind when a stranger calls you "friend," or "sir," or "lady." In fact, you expect those you don’t know to use such titles. But once you are introduced and you give the other person your name, you feel put off if he or she continues to call you sir or lady. In doing so your acquaintance is rejecting the closeness that using your personal name would otherwise induce.
Yahweh feels the same way. If once we know His Name but insist on calling Him by titles of generic deities, we fall out of favor. His Name is a mark of intimate closeness. How can some claim a "personal relationship" when they don’t even call on Him by Name? In making a covenant with Israel, one of the very first things Yahweh did was to introduce them to His personal Name. He wanted and expected the intimacy that using His personal Name would engender.
Getting Down to Specifics
When Yahweh proclaimed through the prophet Isaiah in 42:8, "I am Yahweh, that is my Name," He didn’t say, "That’s one of my names" or "You can just call me whatever you wish, I’ll know who you mean." On the contrary. He said, "That is my Name." Period. End of discussion. The psalmist wrote of Him in 83:18, "... Whose Name alone is Yahweh..."
In the Bible, when a person gave his name to another individual, it signified the joining of the two in closest unity. When Yahweh gave His Name to Israel, He was joining with them – it was a marriage – the closest union two can enjoy. We as spiritual Israel and bride of the Messiah are to take on His Name as well.
Is it just coincidence that a woman takes on a man’s surname in marriage? Why is that? It is because now they are in union – they have become one in aspiration, goal, and commitment to a single cause in a family headed by the husband. (In this era of feminism it’s hard to say how long that will continue to be the practice.) Acts 15:14 tells us that Yahweh takes out from the gentiles a special people "for His Name." He is creating a family under His Name: "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Master Yahshua the Messiah, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named," Ephesians 3: 14-15.
Esteemed by Name
Biblically, the person and his name are virtually equivalent and inseparable. The word "name" in Hebrew is shem. Shem means a mark or a memorial – expressing a person’s individuality. A name is a mark of a person’s honor (or dishonor), his authority, and his character. In fact, a name describes and defines everything about the person. The Name Yahweh has great significance because of what it defines. Intrinsic to Yahweh’s Name is the very verb of existence.
In Exodus 3:14 He tells Moses: "I am that I am," or "ha Yah asher ha Yah" in the Hebrew. It means I am existence itself. I cause everything to come into being. His Name Yahweh describes Him, defines Him, and displays His attributes as the one who causes us to exist now and the one who can give us everlasting existence as well. Joel 2:32 prophesies that the day will come when whoever shall call on His Name will be delivered. That meaning is also intrinsic in the definition of His Name: "I am" or "I will be." "Yahweh" connotes, "I will be there (for you)," especially when you need deliverance.
His Name is also a family Name. His people, His very Chosen, are called by His Name: "O Yahweh, hear; O Yahweh, forgive; O Yahweh, hearken and do; defer not, for your own sake, O my Elohim: for your city and your people are called by your name" (Dan. 9:19). His people take on this wonderful Name because they are in covenant union with Him – obeying Him and pleasing Him in all that they do. Astoundingly, His Name Yahweh is found no fewer than 6,823 times in ancient Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible. It simply cannot be ignored.
The Error in ‘But I speak English’
Then there is the common argument, "I don’t call on Him by His Hebrew Name because I speak English." Does a person change his name when traveling to foreign lands in which different languages are spoken? Or is his name the same everywhere he goes? Does he get a new passport at each new port of entry? Or is John Doe still "John Doe" in each country he visits? Obviously his name remains unchanged, being spelled the same no matter where he goes.
What is the English equivalent of Franzois Mitterrand? It’s Francois Mitterrand, is it not? What is the English form of Boris Yeltsin? Why, it’s Boris Yeltsin. If the argument is, I speak English therefore I use English names, then what is "Satan" in English? Satan is a name transliterated in Scripture, as are many others. As with Yahweh, the name Satan is Hebrew. The English form of Abraham is also Abraham, a Hebrew name right out of the Hebrew Scriptures and carried over almost unaltered into our English translation. What about Daniel, also a Hebrew name? What’s the English equivalent for Daniel? The name is Daniel, of course. How about Sarah and Martha?
These are all Hebrew names unaltered in the English translation because names simply are not translated. Names are transliterated, meaning that the sounds are brought across unchanged from one language to another. We have no problem with using these Hebrew names without an English equivalent because THERE IS NO ENGLISH EQUIVALENT! Why should Yahweh’s Name be any different? Why should the most important Name in the universe not just be altered, but completely replaced? (The term "god" is not an English word anyway. It derives from the Germanic Gott.)
Common Words and Names with ‘Yah’
One of the most popular words of praise is halleluyah. One can hear it in churches all around the globe. It’s one of the most ancient words of exultation in existence, and is a purely Hebrew term. "Hallel" means "praise" in Hebrew, and "Yah" is the first part of the sacred Name Yahweh (i.e. Yah-weh). Therefore halleluYah means "Praise Yah." Most do not realize that the most common word of praise contains our Heavenly Father’s very Name—"Hallelu-Yah." We see this word especially in the form hallelu-jah, but the "j" is derived from the Hebrew yod, which is a consonant-vowel equivalent to the Y. Another fact many overlook is that there was no letter J in any Hebrew, Greek or Anglo-Saxon alphabet. Therefore the original letter could not have been a J but an I or Y. The J is the newest letter in our alphabet and came into existence about the time of Christopher Columbus.
The "J" is merely an "I" with a tail on it, with a "juh" sound that evolved only recently. The "J" and "I" were used interchangeably until the 17th century. Scripture records many well-known names that contain the name of the Heavenly Father. "Elijah" was not pronounced that way in the Scriptures. It was "Eliyah," a name that means, "my El is Yah." Isaiah (YeshaYah) is a Hebrew name that means "salvation of Yah." Jeremiah (YirmeYah) means "whom Yah raises up," and Zephaniah (ZephanYah) is "hidden of Yah." Many other writers and prophets were named after Yahweh, showing the close bond they had with Him.
Inconsistencies in Argument for English
If one sticks to the position that because we speak English we should not use Hebrew forms, then we shouldn’t use the forementioned names, either, because they are Hebrew names and "we don’t speak Hebrew." It would not be right to apply that argument just to Yahweh’s Name and not to all the other Hebrew names and words in the Bible – like "Sabbath," a Hebrew name, and "Messiah," another Hebrew word.
What about all the cities in the Scriptures, like Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem, and the names of hundreds of other people, places, rivers, seas, deserts, and mountains? These would all need to be changed to English equivalents to be consistent with the argument calling for the exclusive use of English. The problem is, there are no equivalent English forms for these Hebrew names! Neither is there an adequate equivalent or substitute name or title for Yahweh’s great Name.
Let’s pursue this argument a bit further.
‘Dear (Nameless) President’
What is the English name for Yahweh? Can it be G-d, with a capital G?
First, we must realize that "god" is not a name but a title. Paul said there are gods many and lords many. Titles do not define specific individuals. There are many presidents in our country – presidents of corporations, colleges, board presidents, bank presidents...but there is only one president of General Motors, only one president of Harvard, only one president of Citibank – and each has a specific, identifiable name that he answers to.
If I wrote a letter addressed, "Dear President," it could apply to any one of these presidents. Only when I include the name with that title do I reveal whom I am specifically addressing. If I pray to the god of this world, Paul in 2Corinthians 4:4 says that I could be praying to Satan because Satan is called a "god of this world," as are thousands of other god deities man has worshiped throughout history. Even then, those deities had specific NAMES attached to their titles.
Our Foreign, English Language
Is "God" simply an equivalent for "Yahweh," used by English-speaking, Bible believers?
Does He expect His people to change His Name to some other form according to the language they speak? And is that even possible? The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) says "god" derives from the Dutch god, stemming from the Old High German, gott. It sprang from the Gothic guth, going back to the Teutonic gudo, which stems from two Aryan roots – one meaning to invoke, the other to pour in the sense of a molten image.
The point is, can we say that God is an English word? Far from it! Its common English usage belies ancient foreign origins. Relatively few of the words we use in English are in fact pure English. The word "English" itself isn’t even English! England is from "Englaland," land of the Angles. Who were the Angles? Germans from the lowlands of Germany who settled in eastern England in the 5th century (see "English," OED)
Our Impure ‘English’ Language
Our Impure ‘English’ Language
Our Impure ‘English’ Language
English is a melting pot language that borrows extensively from many languages. The statement, "I speak English so I don’t use the Hebrew name," is reasoning that lacks a historical basis in fact. Let’s analyze that statement and see just how "nonEnglish" the roots of our language really are. Discovering the origin of each of the words in that simple sentence proves enlightening indeed:
I = the letter I is the ninth letter of the alphabet, coming through the Latin from the Greek and ultimately from the Semitic or Hebrew yod – the first letter in Yahweh's Name.
speak = from the German sprechen
English = a proper noun based in German, as already shown
so = akin to the Gothic swa
do = traces to sanskrit which was spoken in India
not = Old English nought, cognate to several Old Saxon and French formations
use = from Latin asus
the = from Teutonic and Indo-European forms
Hebrew = Hebrew Eber, one who "crosses over."
Name = Greek onoma .
In the statement, "I speak English, so I do not use the Hebrew Name," the word "not" is the only one of those 10 words that is English in origin. English is not by any stretch a pure language. Much of it is from the Romance languages, and vast numbers of its words derive from Greek and Latin (and ultimately Hebrew). Most of the words we use in English come from some other language.
The point in all of this is that language has very little to do with the Name of the Mighty One of the Scriptures. He was Yahweh before He put man on earth. Before there were all these languages from Babel, He was Yahweh. His Name transcends language. "Yahweh" is existence personified. Psalm 135:13 says, "Thy Name endures forever, your memorial throughout all generations." His Name is His memorial that endures for all time.
First Commandment Is Foundational
The Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:2 begin, "I am Yahweh your Elohim which brought you out of the Land of Egypt. You shall have no other mighty ones before me." All false worship can ultimately be traced to a violation of this first of the Ten Commandments. Every sin we commit results from not putting Yahweh and His will, manifested by His laws, first.
Before He says anything, Yahweh establishes in the very first commandment that HE is Yahweh our Mighty One. Ecclesiastes 12:13 bears out this important truth: "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yahweh and keep His commandments, for this is the whole [duty] of man." We continue in Exodus20:4: "You shall not make into you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth." Heathens did not worship a stone image as a stone, but as a representation of some deity. He says don’t manufacture these things because they will remind you of some other deity, and I am the only one you are to worship.
Moving on, verse 6 tells us that if we love Him to keep the commandments and He in turn will show mercy to us. Now notice verse 7: "Thou shalt not take the name of Yahweh your Elohim in vain." What does it mean to take His Name in vain? Curse when you miss the nail with a hammer and smash your thumb? Or something far more significant?
Not in the Hebrew
"Take" is the Hebrew nasa, meaning to lift or bring to. Vain comes from shoaw, to rush over, bring to devastation, uselessness, waste – basically "take in vain" means to treat with neglect. When we trade His name exclusively for some title, we are breaking the Third Commandment.
"You shall not bring His Name to desolation or ignore it through neglect," the com- mandment says. When we use a common title in worship, we are missing the most important aspect of who Yahweh is and what He stands for; what He is all about and what He can do for us. His Name describes the very essence of who He is – Yahweh: He is existence itself. No title can mean all that His name stands for. A title defeats the purpose of a name. It just sits there like a pasted-on label, with no depth of meaning and tied to no particular identity.
"I am Yahweh, that is My Name, and My glory will I not give to another," He says in Isaiah 42:8. He and His Name are inseparable. Our hope is that you will grasp the awesome importance of this truth and will come to know your Creator through His personal, revealed Name Yahweh. Realize all that He can and will do for you if you will put Him first and honor His wonderful and powerful Name!
—It’s More Than a Name!
The common argument that any name is acceptable for calling on the heavenly Father not only violates the sanctity of Yahweh’s revealed, personal Name, but also is an assault on True Worship.
Now a push to unite all worship into monolithic, New Age religion is accomplishing its goals in the same way—exploiting key words that are important to proper worship and redefining them for mass consumption and unholy ends.
In the 44th chapter of Jeremiah we find our Heavenly Father Yahweh completely disgusted with His people and ready to wash His hands of them. We see a once exceedingly patient Father who has finally had enough of His rebellious children who insist on worshiping their own way no matter what.
After all the prophets He had sent to warn them, after all the trials they failed to overcome and the plagues and hardships they endured for their disobedience, nothing ever really changed.
Now the people say in defiance to the prophet, "As for the word that you have spoken unto us in the name of Yahweh, we will not hearken unto you. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goes for out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil" (Jer. 44:16-17).
Here Judah is openly reprobate and contemptuous, like a bratty child who acts up just as soon as his parent’s back is turned. These rebellious people are still wanting to worship the heathen gods. No matter what Yahweh says or does, they lust to follow the apostasy of the majority religions around them.
Yahweh decides it’s time for some drastic steps. Go ahead, then, Yahweh tells them. Keep your promise to worship in error—like the heathens around you. But know this, you may no longer use my Name. Notice:
"Therefore hear the word of Yahweh, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt; Behold, I have sworn by my great name, says Yahweh, that my name shall no more be named in the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, Yahweh Elohim lives" (Jeremiah 44:26).
This is punishment for their refusal to worship Him in truth. He does not want His name tied to them or their sin of rebellion.
I follows, therefore, that for Judah to return to True Worship would mean that Judah would have to return to using His Name.
Name Identifies True Worship
The lesson for us comes down to this: You cannot worship properly without using His proper, personal Name. His Name defines the Father as well as the one worship that is uniquely His. The only True Worship in the Bible is done in and through His revealed Name.
We learn in Revelation 7:3, 14:1, and 22: 1-4 that the 144,000 faithful who are sealed in the end days are sealed with His Name in their foreheads. His Name separates True worshipers from the false and will give them literal protection from tribulation in the latter days.
Notice what James told the people gathered at Jerusalem: "Simon Peter has declared how Elohim at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name" (Acts 15:14).
The heathens had to come out of their false worship and adhere to the true Name. True Worship and His Name go together and cannot be separated.
Those who know the true Name but insist on using replacement titles are still in spiritual Egypt, in essence still sacrificing to the Queen of Heaven because they have not come to know the true Father, which comes from using His personal Name.
I there is one truth that is clearly shown throughout Scripture it is this: His Name and True Worship go hand in hand, they cannot be separated. He prohibits man from substituting His Name just as He disallows any worship other than what He prescribes.
By showing us in Jeremiah 44 that apostate worshipers are not allowed to use His Name, He is also showing us that only in His Name can one worship in truth.
The true Name is not just a matter of His "knowing who we mean" when we worship or call on Him. It is more than identity. His Name is the difference between being in the truth and being outside the truth. It’s the difference between worship that pleases Him and worship that provokes Him.
This truth is as difficult for some to accept as it is for them to accept the Sabbath over Sunday. It is nothing more than 2,000 years of entrenched tradition that has them confused. All they need to do is allow Yahweh to work with their hearts—show them the truth—and they will see the difference.
His Name identifies His people as it defines the right way of worship.
The prophet wrote: "O Yahweh, hear; O Yahweh, forgive; O Yahweh, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my Elohim: for your city and your people are called by your Name" (Daniel 9:19).
Names in our culture are mostly labels. Not so with Yahweh. His Name signifies the one and only true Heavenly Father as opposed to the false deities of apostate worship. His Name is a true means of identification, a link to the only true Creator.
The simple lesson for Israel and for us is this: Reject True Worship and you reject His name. The reverse is also true: Reject His Name for a substitute one, and you no longer have the authentic, True Worship of the Scriptures. The two are inseparable.
Danger in Name Apathy
Names and words are powerful in ways you may not have considered. Is there any danger to the notion that any name is acceptable in worship of our Heavenly Father?
Aside from keeping us from the truth, the typical nonchalance regarding the Heavenly Father’s Name and His atypical worship is part of the general indifference that will open the door to the universal, false religion to take control soon. At the heart of this system will be a demon-backed religious leader who will demand worship on a worldwide scale.
A book called New Age Bible Versions details how the way is being paved for the great deception. It reveals that the newer translations of Scripture are taking important words and terms associated with pure worship and generalizing them to appeal to a broad spectrum of worshipers.
Highly publicized recently is the taking of male references to Yahweh in Bibles and religious song books and replacing them with general references and pronouns like "She" for "He" (as worship of the ancient, feminine goddess Sophia returns to churchianity).
Ultimately, attempts will be made to include everyone of every faith under a single, global religion. To accomplish that, the wording in new Bibles will help to ease many into further false worship.
The move is subtle now; once churchianity is rendered even more pliable, however, the complete yielding to a one-world religion will come rapidly.
Paving the way for this universal religion is a reorienting of beliefs through the manipulation of words. Unaware of what is happening, the masses accept new terminology that moves them further from what truth they had.
Titles That Thrill Satan
Turn to Luke 4:8. This is Yahshua’s response to Satan’s invitation to fall down and worship the Evil One: "And Yahshua answered and said unto him, Get behind me, Satan: for it is written, You shall worship Yahweh your Elohim, and him only shall you serve" (Luke 4:8).
The KJV says "L-rd thy G-d." The Aramaic or Hebrew, which Yahshua spoke, reads, "Yahweh your Elohim." But even in the Greek, Yahweh’s Name would have remained unchanged.
If Yahshua actually said, "Lord thy God," Satan would have been delighted. Why? Because He could have been referring to Satan himself. The Apostle Paul calls Satan the "god of this world" in 2Corinthians 4:4. In Matthew 12:24 Satan is called Beelzebub, which is another term for "Lord of the Flies."
In effect our English translation says: it is written, you shall worship the lord god—which could just as well be Satan—and him only shall you serve!
We can see how the Adversary delights when people are led to worship in common titles today. Doing so removes them from the true Father and a false one is put in His place through a generic and incorrect identification.
Any time we are not worshiping Yahweh in His true Name, we are in danger of invoking false mighty ones manufactured by the Father of lies himself—even if done in ignorance.
Change the name of the one you worship and you change WHO you worship and the WAY he is worshiped. Substitute a universal title and remove yourself from the True Yahweh. It is not simply a matter of semantics; it is not simply a choice between two alternatives. It is a matter of true versus false identification—and proper worship versus erroneous worship!
That is why Yahweh characteristically introduces Himself by Name first, then specifies precisely what worship He expects: "I am Yahweh: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images" (Isa. 42:8). In Exodus 3, Yahweh tells Moses that His Name is Yahweh, then proceeds to explain how He will bring Israel out of the sin of Egypt. They would come to know True Worship, including the Holy Days, after they first learned His personal Name.
Power Through Words
We establish our beliefs through language. Language can inspire, convict, and challenge, as in the way Yahshua used it; or it can be used to manipulate and subjugate, as despots have done over the centuries. Words can sway emotion and opinion, as in a good movie or a good book.
Even husbands, wives, and children know what the wrong word or the right word can mean in their relationships.
The use of general titles like god and lord promote universalism, which is exactly the opposite of the True faith. True Worship is narrow, specific, well defined, and includes a relatively few faithful identifying the true Father by name (Matt. 7:14).
The way of error leading to destruction is broad and many will be walking on it, Yahshua said (v. 13). One way this is accomplished is by the argument that it does not matter what we call Him. Any name or title is acceptable.
As explained, titles like god and lord are general and apply to many different mighty ones, even to Satan himself. Pagan idols as well are called by the same titles commonly used as names for the Heavenly Father.
Titles do not fix personal identity. They are like the generic "human being." To call on "G-d" is like calling your neighbor "the person."
Today’s New Babel
Even the sacred Name of the Creator Himself can lose its significance when we allow others to manipulate with words and substitute names.
The human-centered, humanistic movement that began in the Renaissance is finally succeeding in eliminating the very language of sin, which derives from a higher power. We hardly ever hear in general society terms like "immorality," "living in sin," "fornication," "virtuous," and the like, anymore.
Today man has decided to set his own standards of what is right and proper. Sin and any references to it are out, because sin recognizes a Father above, and that directly conflicts with the idea that man himself is all-knowing.
Our culture is building a new Tower of Babel, where everyone speaks the same language of moral relativism. This movement is out to change the way people think about the issue of right and wrong itself by changing their language and how right and wrong are expressed. Forces working behind the scenes have seized on the power of language to promote their own agendas.
It's all part of a revamping of Bible-based beliefs—to replace traditional and Biblical morality with humanistic beliefs. This in turn will prepare the way for the universal Man of Sin.
Instead of Biblical standards, we have today "political" correctness. As one author wrote, "Political correctness is an attempt to eliminate freedom of speech for those who hold traditional values and religious beliefs. It is overt social censorship designed to stifle the truth."
But even greater implications are those that tamper with the very nature of Almighty Yahweh and His Word. Satan is out to obliterate Yahweh and the truth of Him in a final push to prepare for His own Antimessiah.
Not just everyday words but even the Word of Yahweh is being molested and modified for an unrighteous end. A recent report notes that a prominent publisher is packaging its Bibles for worldwide distribution with the insignia, "Good News for a New Age."
Even more disturbing is how new versions are fiddling with the text itself.
Satan as God
Those who misunderstand the significance of words and names tell us that it doesn’t matter what you call the Heavenly Father. They say, "He knows who you mean" regardless. Oddly, however, those who tell us this exclusively employ the same "L-rd" and "G-d" titles, which by their universal use amount to false, replacement names.
Having been removed from the Name Yahweh, which identifies the True Mighty One of this universe and the specific worship He demands, modern worshipers have unwittingly accepted a generic title that takes them away from the only True Worship connected with His Name as well.
Not surprisingly, Satan has usurped this title. New Age and satanic writings describe Satan in terms that sound Biblical, calling Him the Divine God, saying Lucifer is God, the bringer of light, the savior of the world.
This fact will help to fulfill the prophecy of Revelation 13:4:
"And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"
But how could it happen? Quite easily. The masses are already calling on their mighty one with the same terms and titles honored in both Christianity and Satanism.
Yahweh’s Unheeded Warning
A little more deception and they simply transfer the titles from one being to another! By definition, titles can apply to any number of persons or beings.
Thus is the final fulfillment of Deuteronomy 32:17: "They sacrificed unto devils, not to Elohim; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not."
There are many new "gods" coming up in this age of the New Age. Our society is becoming increasingly taken over by pagan worship and its many false deities.
But the biggest is yet to show. The very worship of the Antimessiah all starts with violating the warning in Exodus 23:13, which is just as applicable for us today as for Israel 3,000 years ago:
"And in all [things] that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth" (Exodus 23:13).
Yahweh knew clearly what He was doing by giving us this warning. He is Yahweh Almighty, the only True Father above. His Name defines Him and His name identifies Him, just as it does those He calls His People—who are called by His Name, Isaiah 43:7.
