What Name do you call on the Hebrew God by?

  Let he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully.


 (Jer 23:26-28) How long shall this be in the heart of the teachers that teach lies? yea, they are teachers of the deceit of their own heart; {27} Which think to cause my people to forget my name (YHWH) by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal (LORD). {28} The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD. Deu 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

H1167; Baal, a Phoenician deity:--Baal, [plur.] Baalim.

"Baal, literal meaning is "Lord," in Canaanite. The Canaanite and Roman Pantheons (2) were the temples for all their fertility (sun) gods." The Greek God's, Zeus and the goddess Aphrodite (2) (easter to us), were both Phoenician fertility symbols. Baal, (the Lord) sun god, was fervently prayed to for the protection of livestock and crops." The religion of the god Baal was widely accepted among the ancient Jews, it was never permanently stamped out of their faith. Kings and other royalty of the ten Biblical tribes worshiped this God. The ordinary (Jewish) people ardently worshipped this sun god too because their prosperity depended on the productivity of their crops and livestock." (1) (pan·the·on (p²n"th¶-¼n", -…n) n. 1. Pantheon. A circular temple in Rome, completed in 27 B.C. and dedicated to all the gods. 2. A temple dedicated to all gods. 3. All the gods of a people. (2) Aph·ro·di·te n. "Greek Mythology. The goddess of sex and beauty."This Holy Scripture above tells us that His people, both them and now us, have forgotten His NAME "YHWH" and substituded ( LORD = Baal) and (Adonia - the name) for Yhwh. Yahwah is (I AM THAT I AM) in the KJV. He is Yahshua (I AM ) Salvation. Acts 4:12 There is salvation in no other NAME. They are a MEMORIAL of His individuality. In the Old Covenant written in Hebrew, the Prophets wrote down "YHVH ELOHIYM". When it was translated into Greek, the Scribes translated it:. yehovah 'elohiym. In the new Coventant Yahshua was first written: "iesous" (1) The Romans Church did not translated "YHVH ELOHIYM" in to Latin. They just wrote down the names of their Latin Gods: Dominus Deus (LORD GOD). This is shown in the Latin scriptures below. (1) (2424. Iesous, ee-ay-sooce')

In the New Covenant, in Hebrew, the Messiah's name is written "Yahshua. The Greek's translated Yahshua as: "iesous". The reformers now writes it "iesous" as Jesus in our present day English. When the "J" was added to the English language, they added the "J" to "iesous", thus Jesus". In the Old Covenant scriptures below in both Hebrew and English you will see what the names originally were. In the Latin Vulgate you will see how yehovah 'elohiym was changed to "LORD God".

English from Hebrew. (Gen.2:7-8 Heb.) "And formed Adam of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul. 8 And YHVH ELOHIYM planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the Adam whom he had formed."

Hebrew. (Gen 2:7-8 HG) . . yehovah 'elohiym yatsar 'adam . . 'aphar . . 'adamah . naphach . . 'aph . neshamah . chay . 'adam hayah . chay nephesh {8} . . yehovah 'elohiym nata' . gan qedem . 'eden . sham . suwm . 'adam 'asher . . yatsar

Latin: Gen. 2:7-8 "formavit igitur Dominus Deus hominem de limo terrae et inspiravit in faciem eius spiraculum vitae et factus est homo in animam viventem plantaverat autem 8: Dominus Deus paradisum voluptatis a principio in quo posuit hominem

English from Latin Vugate: (Gen 2:7-8 KJV) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. {8} And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

HG. 3068. Yehovah, yeh-ho-vaw'; from H1961; (the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jeho-vah, Jewish national name of God:--Jehovah, the Lord. Comp. H3050, H3069.

In Hebrew the name is YHWH. In English it is Yahwah thy Elohim (the Supreme God).

Latin: Dominus 1: a master of a house, LORD, Master as owner in Land LORD. Deus 1: A GOD, a diety,


King James's used "Lord God" "Dominus Deus" from the Latin Vulgate. They are title of rank like (Captain) for any of the Host of Heaven Deities used in all their religions. They are not the names of the person holding the rank of Captain. If the Greeks and Romans had of used their God's individual's name plus his rank as the Hebrew Bible does, "(name = YHWH) (rank = the mighty One)" they would have had to use "(name - Zeus or Tammuz) (rank - God or Lord ). "Zeus and Tammuz are both Sun Gods and "Lord" it over the Heavens. The Greeks did not do this with the Old Covenant translation. The Romans did. The Romans as the Greeks, held the Sun as their most highest God. Elohim - thy Almighty is the Hebrew term for the MOST high position and it is held by YHWH, "The Almighty One". (Baal, Lord or God are all words that means "mighty ones"). In the Roman and Egypt Empires, there are many Mighty ones. They seen there Caesars as GODS. Read the Roman Mythologies. "SOLI INVICTO" = The Invincible (mighty) Sun. "dies Solis = Sun Deity". Baal is (lord), God is (Deity). If the Roman Church had of identified the true gods they were worshipping, they would not be using "Lord God" in their translations today. Ezek 8:14 "Then he brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of YHWH; women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz". Deu 17:3 And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

YaHWaH is the English translation for the Hebrew name (YHWH). The Bible was not written originally in Latin. The scriptures were translated into Latin by the Roman Church which was Anti Jewish and would have nothing to do with the "Hebrew's" God. They had their own Gods. The Greeks were not Anti Jewish. The original Hebrew and the Greek translation therefore have the correct names that they should have been used in the King James Bible. The Roman's being Anti Jewish and people who worshipped the Sun ", used the common titles of their Latin Gods (Lord and Deity). They replaced the Hebrew names YAHWAH thy Elohim. Thus, the Roman's being people who worshipping the "SOLI INVICTO" replaced it with "Dominus Deus." The Romans were never introduced to the God of Israel, YHWH thy Elohim, in the Latin Vulgate. Most English Bibles translations do not expose you to the Hebrew God's Name either. Some do.


Carnal men of every nation have created generic gods through their Pagan Solar Mythologies, (Host of Heaven worship). (1) Church leaders would have you believe that everyone who acknowledges a "Higher Power" called "GOD " is worshipping the One true "YAWH thy Elohim". They all associate the title "God" with being the only higher power that there is. How are we to separate and identify the Creator of this universe in this age of "enlightenment" or political correctness from all other Gods? Is it by using capitals for the true God and small letter for the idol (NO) gods? Or is it by using the TITLES Adonis - LORD - L-RD for His Name. The WAY the Holy Scriptures in Hebrew identify the One and only true GOD is: (YHWH) (I AM, I EXIST) thy Elohim), and in the Greek: ("yehovah 'elohiym.").

"The Scriptures below says there are many Gods and many Lords--." The word Elohim and God mean one and the same thing, "mighty ones". Therefore, when using the word God, one must use a prefix or suffix to identify which God he is talking about. Thus ("yehovah 'elohiym.") , (Yahwah - Elohim) or (God of Creation),

(1) (1 Cor 8:5-7 NRSV) Indeed, even though there may be so-called gods (Elohims) in heaven or on earth--as in fact there are many gods and many lords-- {6} yet for us there is one Elohim (Almighty One), the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one YHWH thy Elohim, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. {7} It is not everyone, however, who has this knowledge. Since some have become so accustomed to idols until now, -"

(1 Chr 16:26-29 ) For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the Elohim made the heavens. {27} Honor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place. {28} Ascribe to YHWH, O families of the peoples (Israelites), ascribe to the YHWH glory and strength. {29} Ascribe to the YHWH the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come before him. Worship YHWH in holy splendor;.

The Hebrew word (YHWH) in English means: I AM, I EXIST. The difference between the God of Israel and the Gods of the Pagans is: HE EXISTS and they DO NOT. The Pagan's gods only exist in the minds of the people who worship them. (Baal = Lord), (Adonai = my Lord) are Canaanite sun gods. (Easter is a goddess) (Christmas worship is a god) and (RA = Lord) are Sun Gods from Greek Roman and Egyptian mythology. Gal 4:8 "Howbeit then, when ye knew not Elohim, ye did service unto them which by nature are no elohims."

If you don't know "Elohim" you WILL do service unto them which by nature are no elohims."

There were and still are Jew’s who teach that man should not speak the name of Ysreal’s "Yahwah". They say that His name is so holy that only the Hebrew, high priests were allowed to pronounce it. Others claim that they don't pronounce His name out of respect, Others claim no one knows how to pronounce His name. While others refuse to pronounce it and don't even know why. Other use substitute names for the God of Israel as the reformers did and don't know WHY they did. The question is, do you know why the modern English Bibles use titles like Adonis and LORD in place of the Hebrew and Greek titles. YHWH (I AM, I Exist)?

This Jewish tradition of submitting a different name (Adonai meaning "my lord") was birthed out of their belief that they offended (YHWH) by saying or using His name wrongly. They saw their captivity as a result of this offense. The offense was not saying and using YHWH rightly. The Jews were so afraid that they would inadvertently take the name of the Lord in vain that they stopped using it altogether and used a false name "Adonis" instead. They substituted a common title for one of the local Canaanite gods. Adonai, my lord, is the Canaanite title for their Baal = Lord, their Sun god.

The Greek rendered it as "y'-ho-vah"and when they pronounce it, it sounded as (YHWH). We pronounce "YHWH" the same as the Hebrew's pronounce it today by adding the "a" vowels. (Yahwah or Yahvah.) The spelling "Jehovah"came about six hundred years ago when the letter "J " sound replaced the "Y" sound in the English langlage. A German Theologian used the "J" in the German alphabet to replace the "Y" sound in "yhovah". The German "J" had the same sound as "Y" in English. If a German was to say "Jahvah" to us, it would sound as if he said a "Y" sound. Jumping becomes Yumping. There is no English "J" sound in Hebrew, Greek or Latin or German. The English alphabet has a "J" sound. Therefore we say "Jesus" instead of "Yesus." The Greek rendering of Yalshua.

The Carnal Jew’s use Adonai instead of "Yahwah" and in theirTalmuds rendered the name of YHWH as (Adonai - L-rd) and (Elohim) as G-d. Their practice of doing this is still the most popular way their English translations. Only we use the whole words (LORD) not knowing why. In keeping with these traditions, English translations render (YHWH’s) name as LORD from the Latin Vulgate translation, (all caps). In Hebrew you cannot write "LORD, L-rd". There were no CAPITALIZATIONS in the Hebrew pictorial language.

(1 Cor 8:5-6 KJV) For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) {6} But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

There are many LORDS. Lord Jesus, "House of Lords, House of commons" Lord Chancellor. Lords rule over others under the authority of their King. LORD is not a word that identifies an individual such as (YHWH) of Israel. There are: War Lords. "Lord of the Rings", Lord Krishna, Lord Surya (Sun) Worship, Lord Rama. Lord Krishan and Lord Vishnu. In the Bible there are 111 Baal -Lords): Baal-hanan, Baal-zephon; Baal of Peor and one "making Baal-berith their god". None of them refer to Yahwah. There are thousands of LORDS in different religions. Which LORD of the thousands of LORDS are you addressing your prayers to by just saying "LORD GOD". All the above are LORD GODS.

All Hebrew names are descriptive names. (YHWH = I AM, I EXIST) (Yahshua = I AM Salvation) (Abraham = father of many nations) (Ysreal = Prince with Elohim). The I AM always adds a qualifier to the I AM to identify who He is. "I EXIST" Lord and God are only qualifers to discribe the person. They do not identify which LORD or GOD he is. In English we qualify who the Lord is when we talk about them.

(Isa. 9:6) (Exo 3:14 ) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." (Rev 1:8 KJV) I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the (I AM), which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (Elohim. the Almighty One).

"Sacred Names people" say you MUST use the Hebrew name for the Hebrew God and pronounce it correctly. An attitude similar to the Pharisees. They say you must pronounce it correctly to be right with God. They argue among themselves which of the 26 or more different variations of spellings and pronunciations are correct. Where does it all end? (Eccl 12:13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God (the Almighty One) and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." The Name is not sacred in the sense of sacred. Holy yes, and we as His people should all be using our Father's various names when we address Him in prayer and worship. (Isa' 9:6)

The Jewish tradition of replacing God with (G-d) or replacing YHWH with HaShem (His Name) or Adonia (My Lord) or (L-rd) is the results of their refusal to speak and write His Hebrew name. How long would you put up with your spouse or lover if they refusing to speak or write your name and use an alias (false) name to refer to you? Would any of your friends or a stranger know who they were talking about? The answer is NO.

Heb. Exodus 20:7 . says, "Thou shalt not take the name of the YHWH thy Elohim in vain; for YHWH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." (Or take a vain name for YHWH.)

The Hebrew word translated "in vain" is (la-shav). It is from (shav) which means to commit an evil act, false, wickedness, iniquity, calamity or destruction. The name "LORD" is a title name substitute for the real name. It's only a common title for men and the No Gods (false deities) who people have submitted to, to ruling over them. The Sun and Moon. and Stars are all false gods that all mankind worship who will not obey the Commandments of God of Israel. (1 Chr 16:26 KJV) "For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens." An Idol is anything (names of false deities, man or substance) substituted for things "Holy" (set aside) to worship "YHWH thy Elohim" Isa 57:15 "For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy (set aside for Him);". To use a substitute name is therefore "IDOLATRY")

Psalm 7:17 in Hebrew says, "I will praise (YHWH) according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of (YHWH) most high." (KJV) The Hebrew word translated "the name of the LORD" is (shem--YHWH) which means the name of YHWH. The translation of "Yah" in the English Bible is "I AM". It is a part of a lot of Hebrew names (Isaiah). HG: 3470. Yesha'yah, yesh-ah-yaw'; H3467 and H3050; Yah has saved; Yeshayah, Yesayah, Yeshayah. Why is YAH so common? Because He, the YAH (I AM), always identifies Himself as the one speaking as the YAH (I A M) He always adds a qualifying statement to identify Himself. Examples: (I AM, I EXIST). (I AM Salvation)

Rev 22:13 "I AM the Alpha and Omega," Rev 22:16 "I Jesus --- I AM the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." Rev 1:18 I AM he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; Rev 1:17 "saying unto me, Fear not; I aAM the first and the last: 1 Pet 1:16 "Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."


Do not follow Jewish traditions.

Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect (VAIN) through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. (Oral traditions in the many Talmuds.)

Deu 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he; there is no god besides me. I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; and no one can deliver from my hand.


So, by this definition, to use the name of "Adonai - G-d - L-rd)" or any other titles of the NO GODS would be a "uselessness" thing. They are not His names as you have seen from the Hebrew and Greek at the start of this paper. If God's name "YHWH thy Elohim" is by His WORD Holy (set aside for Him only), then by the WORD it cannot be insignificant to those who know Him as their Elohim -God. Thus, if the Latin name (LORD - Baal - God) is applied to Him, wouldn't those names be VOID (empty of meaning) as they are names of "NO GODS".

(Heb 13:7-9 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of Elohim to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. {8} Yehshua is the same yesterday and today and forever. {9} Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them.

(YHWH) is written 7836 times as His name in the Tanak (Hebrew Holy Scriptures. Elohim is written 4447 times as part of His name also in the Tanak. The Greek translation replaced YHWH and Elohim with (.yehovah 'elohiym) the same number of times. If we as individuals persist on using the word (LORD) to replace (the Hebrew "YHWH thy Elohim") or the (Greek "yehovah 'elohiym.")., when these two are alway used to refer to the God of Israel, could it not be said that we have taken a VAIN name "LORD".

By Jews and Christians not knowing or refusing to write or use the names "YHWH, Yahwah, Yahshua and I AM" and using substitute other names to replace them, is this not in fact a VAIN tradition? He sanctified (set apart) His Name "I AM that I AM" as Holy in the HOLY Scriptures. Man should not replace it with unholy names, nor refuse to speak them.

(Jer 23:26-27 KJV) How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; {27} Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.


"Baal, literal meaning is "lord god," in Canaanite. The religion of the god Baal was widely accepted among the ancient Jews, and although it was put down at times, it was never permanently stamped out. Kings and other royalty of the ten Biblical tribes worshiped the god. The ordinary Isrealites ardently worshipped this sun god too because their prosperity depended on the productivity of their crops and livestock. The god's images were erected on many buildings. Within the religion there appeared to be numerous priests and various classes of devotees. During the ceremonies they wore appropriate robes. The ceremonies included burning incense, and offering burnt sacrifices, occasionally consisting of human victims. The officiating priests danced around the altars, chanting frantically and cutting themselves with knives to inspire the attention and compassion of the god."

Baal by Alan G. Hefner. ***************************The Myth and Cult of Adonis

Adonis (Eshmun) (my Lord)

Adonis is a young fertility god, a comely youth beloved by Astarte, and represents death and rebirth in an oriental vegetation cult. He is also known as the agricultural divinity named Eshmun.

Adonis is derived from the Canaanite title, Adon. It is the Semitic word for master or ‘Lord and i means ‘my’, therefore Adonai (Adonis is the Hellenized version of the same) translates as ‘my Lord’; similarly the meaning of Baal, with whom he shares traits, is also my ‘lord or my ‘master’.
