Witness To A Jehovah Witness

From Strongs: H1933 - havah {haw-vaw'}, a primitive root (compare ''avah' (183), 'hayah' (1961)) supposed to mean properly, to breathe, to be(in the sense of existence):--be, X have.

H1933 was infrequently used in OT and translated as "to be", but it does not mean Strongs' listing "to breathe" is wrong.

Also, the name "Yahweh" means "He who causes to exist".

Genesis 2:7: "And Yahweh Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul"

So, He caused Adam to exist by putting His breath inside him. This is an indirect witness that the name "Yahweh" and breath go together.

Witness To A Jehovah Witness
StrongAxe:"Where do you get the idea that the word "Yahweh" means "to breathe"?.. YHWH appears to be related to the verb "to be"

You are absolutely right. In Strongs, "Yahweh" (#3068) comes from 'hayah' (#1961) which means "to be". Strongs relates it to the root from 'hava'' (#1933) which means "to breathe, to be".

Psalm 150:6 says "Let everything that has breath praise the LORD (YHWH)". In Strongs, "praise" (#1984) means "to be clear (originally of sound)". Is it a coincidence that "Yahweh" is the sound of our breath?

He is the Creator: as an artist signs his name on the masterpiece, Yahweh signed His name in us.

Witness To A Jehovah Witness
Scott: "Most, but not all, agree that "Yahweh" is accurate... No one knows"

I hope we agree that "Jehovah" is a men-made erroneous name. To make it simple, there is no "J" sound in Hebrew.

I provided the witnesses that Our Creator wants us, His people, to know His name. He is certain that His name will not be lost. "Hallelujah" (Praise be to Yahweh) sounds the same in every language: so, we know His name starts with "Yah".

We breathe His name.

Based on these and other evidence, I go with what I know to be true (or closest to be true). Then my conscience is clear. Does not this make sense?

Witness To A Jehovah Witness
scott: "the actual pronunciation has been lost"

Several witnesses against it:

The Modern Judaica Encyclopedia, Vol. 7, p.69 "The true pronunciation of the name YHWH was never lost. Several early Greek writers of the Christian Church testify that the name was pronounced 'Yahweh'.

The Bible states the following:

"His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun" Psalm 72:5

"my people shall know my name" Isaiah 52:6

Finally, "Yahweh" means "to breathe", and we breathe His name (just listen).

"Jehovah" cannot possibly be the original name of God.

Let's do the best with the information we have.

Witness To A Jehovah Witness
God, Lord, Almighty etc are titles, not names. Paul wrote that there be gods many, and lords many (1 Cor 8:5).

There are many titles, but, as a rule, only one proper name we can identify a person by. As an example, we all know an actor, Hollywood star, celebrity, scientologist, husband, father etc (all titles) whose NAME is Tom Cruise.

" Jehovah " is a modern mispronunciation of the Hebrew name (Encyclopedia Britannica).

Yahweh is the name that Our Creator (not people) chose for Himself (Exodus 3:15, Matthew 1:21): should we ignore, reject or replace it?

Why Christians Disagree
The Messiah said to Peter,"and upon this rock I will build my church"

He could have pointed on Peter or Himself when saying that.

How can we know for sure who is this rock?

According to His purpose, the Truth should be witnessed by the Law and Testimony (Isiah 8:20, Luke 24:27,44).

In the Law, Our Creator is the Rock (Deut 32:4).

In the Testimony, He is the ONLY Rock:

For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? (Psalm 18:31)

He only is my rock and my salvation (Psalm 62:6)

Peter himself agrees that the Messiah is the rock on which the church is built (1 Peter 2:8)

So, this is the answer.

And yes, Strongs definitely confirms this.

Why Christians Disagree
Calhoon " People disagree in scripture because they dont believe in the true Gospel. They have their own Gospel that was taught them by their Churches."

I completely agree. But then two questions arise:

What is the true Gospel?

And why the Churches don't teach it?

Why Christians Disagree
Mic: "If the doctrine is different it is not from the same source!If it is not from the same source it is not from the same SPIRIT"

Trav: "There is only one truth. It is never found or will be found in modern organized doctrines or of men."


Why Christians Disagree
Donna 66: "The unity ... is a unity of spirit, not doctrine."

This is a Spirit of Truth (John 14:17), so there must be the unity of doctrine.

Bible study is great, but it alone does not give understanding.

Yet, only the Truth shall give us eternal life (John 17:3).

Yahweh has to REVEAL His Truth to someone (Romans 14:15), like He always did in the past (Noah, Moses, prophets), and send this person to preach.

The Truth revealed to Apostles was corrupted by later traditions and interpretations: that's why Christians disagree.

In 1931 Yahweh gave a man a panoramic vision and revelation. This is a proof-based original Bible teaching. Please take time to investigate at soundingthetrumpet dotcom.

Does God Forget Our Sins
Anne: "Are you of a particular religious faith? Or do you just study the Bible independently?"

Bible study is great, but it alone does not give understanding.

Yet, only the Truth shall make us free from sin and give eternal life, as the Messiah said (John 8:32-36, John 17:3).

Yahweh has to REVEAL His Truth to someone (Romans 14:15), like He always did in the past (Noah, Moses, prophets), and send this person to preach.

In 1931 Yahweh gave a man a panoramic vision and revelation. Please take time to investigate, as I did. This is a non-denominational, proof-based original Bible teaching non-corrupted by traditions. If interested, contact yahshuan at gmaildotcom or see the site address in my previous post.

Why Christians Disagree
Paul2: Donna8365 is right: "Truth is revealed, and if the Spirit of God doesn't reveal the truth then you give your opinion instead of what the Spirit of God showed you."

You are also absolutely right when talking about pastors' brainwashing under the disguise of revelation.

Yahweh's truth was revealed to the apostles, but later was corrupted by the years of tradition. As the result we have opinions and disagreements.

However His original truth was again revealed through the Divine Vision, supported by "the cloud of witnesses" (Heb 12:1)rather than fanatical preaching. Please check out soundingthetrumpet dotcom: you may find the information very enlightening.

Does God Forget Our Sins
Anne: Thank you for your encouragement!

When we deal with any question in the Bible, it is important to understand the big picture or purpose.

Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. (Hebrews 10:9).

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual. (1 Corinthians 15:46).

So, the purpose of the Messiah was to take away natural to establish spiritual.

Many Christians think about sin in natural terms (behavior), whereas the sin is the state of soul without Yahweh's Truth (Psalms 14:1-3).

To understand why Christians think they still sin, please see soundingthetrumpet dotcom.

Does God Forget Our Sins
MarkV: "They were made righteous by imputation. Not because they were righteous of themselves."

Agree. Savior imputed His righteousness in the souls of believers, so they have His righteousness.

Let's make an example: physical examples reveal spiritual (Romans 1:19,20). Romantic love. There is a change when people fell in love, the difference before and after feels like death and life.

We can't make ourselves fell in love: it comes by grace as a gift. When we are in love, we don't follow the external laws how to please another person (Old covenant): our desire from inside is to please (New Covenant).

The same is with Yahweh: when He puts His Love in us, He makes us a new creature, loving and righteous.

Does God Forget Our Sins
MarkV: "For now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed...through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:21-23).

You seem to believe that "there is no difference" applies to non-believers and believers: all sin. This is wrong. From Romans 2 and 3 it is clear that Paul is comparing Jews and Gentiles. There is no difference, they all sinned: having the law and not having the law (Rom 3:9).

In Romans 5:19-21 (my previous post), Paul is contrasting non-believers and born-again believers in Christ: the first are dead, in bondage, and sinful, while the last are made alive, free and righteous.

Does God Forget Our Sins
Anne: The definition of "sinless".

Sin is transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). Everybody transgressed the Old Law (MarkV is correct), but this Law was abolished by the Messiah (Col 2:14).

The New Law is to Love Yahweh and neighbor. If the Holy Spirit (Love of Yahweh) has become the part of conscience, this person is sinless or don't go against conscience (1 Peter 3:21).

Sure, this person can mistakenly say an improper word, but sin and mistake is not the same. If I intentionally tell a lie (go against conscience), it is sin. If I make an honest mistake, it is not.

Remember, Yahweh is judging by the intents of our heart (1 Samuel 16:7).

For detailed explanation write to yahshuan at gmaildotcom.

Does God Forget Our Sins
MarkV: "the Word of God say's, all come short of the glory of God. You have nothing good in you that warrants salvation."

Absolutely agree. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). This is the case BEFORE we are born again by His grace, as, yes, there is nothing good in us.

However, He has the power to make us a new creature (1 Cor 5:17), righteous (or sinless) in Him:

"For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous...

That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 5:19-21).
