Jehovah or Yahweh? JHVH
Deuteronomy 1423 (KJV) 23 And thou shalt eat
before the LORD thy God, in the place which he
shall choose to place his name there, the tithe
of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and
the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks
that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God
always.
Deuteronomy 1423 (HCSB) 23 You are to eat a
tenth of your grain, new wine, and oil, and the
firstborn of your herd and flock, in the presence
of Yahweh your God at the place where He chooses
to have His name dwell, so that you will always
learn to fear the LORD your God.

Tetragrammaton JHVH or? YHWH ?
????
5
This movement to alter God's name with absolutely
nothing that resembles scriptural, textual, or
linguistic support, has misled huge numbers of
Christians into denying the Bible and accepting
the work of Bible-scoffing atheists who have
dominated the academic field of biblical studies
since the mid-nineteenth century.
6
Hebrew Old Testament is God's word and it clearly
says Yehovah, which becomes Jehovah in English
pronunciation, and pronounced He'ova in Spanish.
7
Myth of No Vowels First we must deal with the
common myth and that is that there are no vowels
expressed in the Hebrew text. This is a
convenient line of nonsense for those who want to
change the text to fit their own views, but it is
a dishonest line. Elaborate diacritic marks,
called pointing by English-speaking Hebrew
scholars, provide extensive information for
vowels, doubled letters, stops, and other
phonological features. Bible "correctors" are
either ignorant of this fact or they pretend that
they do not exist. Those who are aware of them
and argue that they may be ignored because they
were introduced into the text by the Massoretes
at a later date are giving themselves free rein
to alter virtually every word in the entire
Hebrew Old Testament. Not only do these biblical
detractors deny God's promise to forever preserve
his word, every jot and tittle, but they open the
door for Bible manipulation that has no other
criteria than personal judgment or fancy. If we
are to deny the Masoretic reading we can do no
end of mischief to the text by inserting our own
vowels, doubled letters, and stops. This allows
us to change positives into negatives, passives
into actives and vice versa, statement verbs into
causative verbs and vice versa, to convert verbs
into nouns and vice versa, and to even change the
entire meaning of the verb itself. Many words
could have several or even a dozen different
varied meanings by toying with the pointing.
Furthermore, some diacritics indicate different
letters entirely. A dot over the right side of a
shin indicates an SH, while a dot over the left
side of it indicates an S. A dot inside of a vav
is pronounce like a long U while a dot over the
vav turns it into an O, so the removal or
addition of such a dot is fair game to the Yahweh
crowd. A dot inside a Pe is pronounced like P,
while if it lacks a dot it become an F. Similarly
a Bet with a dot is a B and a V without one. A
number of other letters have similar features of
changing their sounds according to the presence
or position of a dot. If we are to ignore the
vowel pointings, we are equally justified in
changing S to SH and vice versa, or many other
consonant changes, since the Massoretes were
responsible for the consonant identifying
diacritics as well. Suggestions to alter the text
is a common method of attacking the Bible that
has been employed by Bible-scoffing scholars in
academia for over 100 years, it is a common
practice that I encountered frequently among
fellow students in Hebrew classes. The practice
is taught and encouraged by those who consider
the Bible to be mythology.
8
It is amazing to see this being done by people
who claim to honor the Bible. Dr. G.A. Riplinger,
in her tome, In Awe of His Word, points out that
ignoring the vowel marks in the Hebrew allow Jews
and atheists to remove future references to our
Saviour from the Old Testament by toying with
these vowels. Riplinger, pp. 433-434. For this
reason vowelless Tanakhs (Hebrew name for Old
Testament) are sometimes used. In fact, if the
Masoretic diacritics are ignored, there is
scarcely a word in the entire Bible, if there is
any at all, that cannot be altered or changed
completely. Why is it that alleged
Bible-believers think that it is wrong to change
words in the Bible into entirely different words,
but it is alright to ignore the reading of the
Hebrew text and alter the name of God without any
evidence to support their altered reading other
than the opinion of 19th century atheists? In
fact, they are changing it when linguistic
evidence shows that the pronunciation that they
are using is wrong.

The name "Yahweh" is not clearly found in the
Hebrew Scriptures The main criticism of the name
"Yahweh" is that the vocalized Hebrew spelling
"Yahweh" is found in no extant Hebrew Text.

Yahweh is a modern scholarly convention
The word Yahweh is a modern scholarly convention
for the Hebrew ????, transcribed into Roman
letters as YHWH and known as the Tetragrammaton,
for which the original pronunciation is unknown
Yahweh is a letter-by-letter English
transliteration of ???? a vocalization of ????
composed by Gesenius in the 19th Century.

  • The following is a summary of the excuses that
    they have used for their refusing to insert the
    true name Yahweh.
  • It's used in most English versions
  • We're following an ancient tradition
  • The word "Jehovah" does not accurately present
    any form of the Name ever used in Hebrew (What
    about "Yahweh"??)
  • Use of any proper name...is entirely
    inappropriate
  • It lacks devotional qualities

Yahweh the Storm God
Kittel, like most biblical scholars within the
academic community today, was a believer in the
storm god theory. Storm gods of Near Eastern and
Vedic mythology were responsible for storms and
disease. From an article that he wrote in The
New Schaff "The origins of Yahweh worship...it
appears that this cult was established before
Deborah...Thus Yahweh appears as an old deity of
Sinai, revered in untold antiquity as a
weather-god..." (The New Schaff, Vol. XII, p.
472)."
21
Yahweh is a modern scholarly convention
Deuteronomy 1423 (KJV) 23 And thou shalt eat
before the LORD thy God, in the place which he
shall choose to place his name there, the tithe
of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and
the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks
that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God
always. Deuteronomy 1423 (HCSB) 23 You are to
eat a tenth of your grain, new wine, and oil, and
the firstborn of your herd and flock, in the
presence of Yahweh your God at the place where He
chooses to have His name dwell, so that you will
always learn to fear the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 1423 (NIV) 23 Eat the tithe of your
grain, new wine and oil, and the firstborn of
your herds and flocks in the presence of the LORD
your God at the place he will choose as a
dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to
revere the LORD your God always. Deuteronomy
1423 (ESV) 23 And before the LORD your God, in
the place that he will choose, to make his name
dwell there, you shall eat the tithe of your
grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the
firstborn of your herd and flock, that you may
learn to fear the LORD your God always.
Deuteronomy 1423 (ASV) 23 And thou shalt eat
before Jehovah thy God, in the place which he
shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there,
the tithe of thy grain, of thy new wine, and of
thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herd and of
thy flock that thou mayest learn to fear Jehovah
thy God always. Deuteronomy 1423 (NKJV) 23 And
you shall eat before the LORD your God, in the
place where He chooses to make His name abide,
the tithe of your grain and your new wine and
your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your
flocks, that you may learn to fear the LORD your
God always. Deuteronomy 1423 (NASB77) 23 "And
you shall eat in the presence of the LORD your
God, at the place where He chooses to establish
His name, the tithe of your grain, your new wine,
your oil, and the first-born of your herd and
your flock, in order that you may learn to fear
the LORD your God always. Deuteronomy 1423
(NASB) 23 "You shall eat in the presence of the
LORD your God, at the place where He chooses to
establish His name, the tithe of your grain, your
new wine, your oil, and the firstborn of your
herd and your flock, so that you may learn to
fear the LORD your God always. Deuteronomy 1423
(GW) 23 Eat the tenth of your grain, new wine,
and olive oil, and eat the firstborn of your
cattle, sheep, and goats in the presence of the
LORD your God in the place he will choose to put
his name. Then you will learn to fear the LORD
your God as long as you live. Deuteronomy 1423
(NLT) 23 Bring this tithe to the designated place
of worshipthe place the LORD your God chooses
for his name to be honoredand eat it there in
his presence. This applies to your tithes of
grain, new wine, olive oil, and the firstborn
males of your flocks and herds. Doing this will
teach you always to fear the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 1423 (TLB) 23 Bring this tithe to
eat before the Lord your God at the place he
shall choose as his sanctuary this applies to
your tithes of grain, new wine, olive oil, and
the firstborn of your flocks and herds. The
purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put
God first in your lives. Deuteronomy 1423 (AMP)
23 And you shall eat before the Lord your God in
the place in which He will cause His Name and
Presence to dwell the tithe (tenth) of your
grain, your new wine, your oil, and the
firstlings of your herd and your flock, that you
may learn reverently to fear the Lord your God
always. Deuteronomy 1423 (BBE) 23 And make a
feast before the Lord your God, in the place
which is to be marked out, where his name will be
for ever, of the tenth part of your grain and
your wine and your oil, and the first births of
your herds and your flocks so that you may have
the fear of the Lord your God in your hearts at
all times. Deuteronomy 1423 (Darby) 23 And thou
shalt eat before Jehovah thy God, in the place
which he will choose to cause his name to dwell
there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy new wine,
and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds
and of thy flocks that thou mayest learn to fear
Jehovah thy God continually. Deuteronomy 1423
(MSG) 23 Bring this into the Presence of GOD,
your God, at the place he designates for worship
and there eat the tithe from your grain, wine,
and oil and the firstborn from your herds and
flocks. In this way you will learn to live in
deep reverence before GOD, your God, as long as
you live. Deuteronomy 1423 (YLT) 23 and thou
hast eaten before Jehovah thy God, in the place
where He doth choose to cause His name to
tabernacle, the tithe of thy corn, of thy new
wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy
herd, and of thy flock, so that thou dost learn
to fear Jehovah thy God all the days.

Jehovah or Yahweh?
The word Jehovah has exactly 7 letters. Seven, in
the Bible, is the number of Gods perfection. Not
only that, but the word Jehovah occurs exactly 7
times in the word of God.
The word Yahweh has 6 letters which in the Bible
is associated with man. That leaves me with the
impression that man has tampered with Gods
perfect name. On that point alone, I would be
very leery about using Yahweh instead of Jehovah.
23
Jehovah occurs exactly 7 times
Genesis 2214 (KJV) And Abraham called the name
of that place Jehovahjireh as it is said to this
day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
Exodus 63 KJV And I appeared unto Abraham,
unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God
Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known
to them. Exodus 1715 (KJV) And Moses built
an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi
Judges 624 (KJV) Then Gideon built an altar
there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom
unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the
Abiezrites. Psalms 8318 KJV That men may know
that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the
most high over all the earth. Isaiah 122 KJV
Behold, God is my salvation I will trust, and
not be afraid for the LORD JEHOVAH is my
strength and my song he also is become my
salvation. Isaiah 264 KJV Trust ye in the LORD
for ever for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting
strength

Latin rendering of the Tetragrammaton has been
the form "Jova"
(Origenis Hexaplorum, edited by Frederick Field,
1875.)
28
As this 1805 German Bible illustration
shows that  when Jesus read in the synagogue
from the scroll of Isaiah, he pronounced God's
name out loud.
29
The following versions of the Bible render the
Tetragrammaton as Jehovah either exclusively or
in selected verses
30
If we are to change the Tetragrammaton to YHVH,
we should also change the spelling of Jerusalem
to Yerusalem, Jericho to Yericho, etc. In
addition, if Yahweh were the correct spelling of
the Tetragrammaton, a German would pronounce that
w like our v, which moves it closer to what the
Bible says, Jehovah. So all of this is a strange
mixture of German and English pronunciation
designed to make folks ask, Yea, hath God
said?

"God is not without a name he has a personal
name (Jehovah). God's name belongs with his
revelation." -Dictionary of New Testament
Theology  (Volume 2, pages 649, 653)
32
The 1971 New American Standard Bible preface
under the heading "The proper Name for God" says
in part, It is inconceivable to think of
spiritual matters without a proper designation
for the Supreme Deity. Thus the most common name
for deity is God, a translation of the original
ElohimThere is yet another name which is
particularly assigned to God as His special or
proper name, that is, the four letters YHWH This
name has not been pronounced by the Jews because
of reverence for the great sacredness of the
divine name. Therefore, it was consistently
pronounced and translated LORD. It is known that
for many years YHWH has been transliterated as
YahwehHowever, it is felt by many who are in
touch with the laity of our churches that this
name conveys no religious or spiritual overtones.
It is strange, uncommon, and without sufficient
religious and devotional background. No amount of
scholarly debate can overcome this deficiency.
Hence, it was decided to avoid the use of this
name in the translation proper. (page ix) The
above statement is signed "Editorial Board."
33
JEHOVAH back through the centuries Some of the
documentation John Gill cites in tracing the
pronunciation of JEHOVAH back through the
centuries includes 277 B.C. (p. 249) A.D. 70
(i.e. Josephus, pp. 219, 221) A.D. 120 (i.e.
Zohar, p. 213) A.D. 200 (Lamentations 521 the
points vowels were then, p. 198.) A.D. 250
(Origen...quotes the Hebrew reading of Ps.
11825, 26 which uses JEHOVAH three times and
agreeable to the present punctuation
vowels...by which it is evident that the Jews
pointed as they do now, pp. 188-189, 192.)
A.D. 380 (Jerom says indeed, that the word
Jehovah was in his time found written..., pp.
58-60, 175-176.) A.D. 927 (Saadiah Gaons book
on the Hebrew vowel points cited the vowels of
Jehovah, pp. 140-141)
34
Note that in English Bibles, only those from 1985
onward purvey the "Yahweh" pronunciation, while
"Jehovah" is documented in ancient sources as far
back as 277 BC.
Jehovah not YAHWEH
35
it is just a guess
"The pronunciation of yhwh as Yahweh is a
scholarly guess." -Anchor Bible Dictionary,
VI-1011.
"Transliteration" has a technical meaning, and it
was used incorrectly. Yahweh is a transliteration
of ... (some pointed Hebrew), but that is a very
strange way of putting things, since this pointed
Hebrew did not exist in advance but was
constructed by reverse transliteration. Yahweh is
not a transliteration but a reading, where the
consonants are given and the vowels conjectured.
People here seem to ascribe a high degree of
certainty to this conjecture, but it is just a
guess, supported by only little evidence, and
there are variant conjectures.
36
To fabricate this new word for God, "Yahweh,"
scholars went to entirely non-biblical sources,
including history, philology, and rationalism,
making these sciences authoritative over the
Bible. Like most such modern "discoveries," the
"Yahweh" word is based entirely upon assumptions,
without one shred -- not one dot -- of evidence.

vowel points and accents
Jesus explained in Matthew 5 18 that one "jot"
(yod the smallest Hebrew letter) nor one "tittle"
(the smallest vowel point or accent) would pass
away. Jesus Christ our Saviour and Messiah
specifically attested to these vowel points and
accents and their use in the Holy Scriptures
J jod H heh V vav H heh
"Yehovah - pronounced yeh-ho-vaw' - is the
correct Hebrew rendering. " -Strong's Exhaustive
Concordance of the Bible

Y to J Issue The final issue that must be
addressed concerns the conversion of Y to J. This
is such an utterly silly and ignorant criticism
that I find it embarrassing that there are
actually Christians that present it as an
argument. I already dealt with the issue in my
article on the name of Jesus, but I will restate
some of it here with some additional historical
linguistic information provided by Dr. Riplinger.
Y becomes a J in every name in English, French,
and Spanish. In English the J is pronounced like
J in Japan, while in French it is pronounced like
S in pleasure, in Spanish it is pronounced like
an H, in German it is pronounced like Y. This is
a phonological and orthographical issue, not a
theological one. There is no theological issue at
stake in how one language interprets a certain
phoneme. In every case of a name in Hebrew that
begins with a yod (Y) it is pronounced with the
appropriate phoneme for that language. This came
about through phonological and orthographical
changes in the developments of those languages.
Even Hebrew itself went through huge phonological
and orthographical changes in its long history.
God's name is not a magic word to be chanted for
power as the name cult seems to suggest for both
the names of God and Jesus. My name comes from a
Hebrew word meaning given by God, which begins
with a Y in Hebrew. It is Jean (zhan) in French,
Juan (hwan) in Spanish, Giovanni in Italian, Hans
in German, Yani in modern Greek, Ivan (eevan) in
Russian, Yahya or Hanna (with a heavy H) in
Arabic, and other variations exist in other
languages. They all translate as John and I have
no trouble adapting to any of them within the
respective cultures and there is no reason for me
to be insulted by any of these names. On the
other hand, being addressed by a made up name
based on a pagan deity would insult me.
42
If these name cultists find the J so
objectionable, why don't they refer to Elijah as
Elaiyah, Jeramiah as Yeramaiyah, Jacob as Yakov,
Jonathan as Yanatan, Jerusalem as Yerushaleem,
and so forth. For that matter why don't they use
the Hebrew pronunciation for all of the names in
the Bible, such as Dahveed, Moshe (Moses),
Shmu'el (Samuel), Sha'ul (Saul), Shlomo
(Solomon), and so forth, if they consider the
issue to be so important. Since those who call
God by a name that is not even Hebrew at all, and
since they do so without a scrap of evidence to
override the very solid evidence to the contrary,
why do they have any constraints at all about
inventing whimsical pointings for other names in
the Bible? Why not call David Dahwid, Duwad,
Diwad, or Deewud. Or how about Da'ud as Arabic
pronounces it? Since Yahwe sounds like an Arabic
word (except for the long A) this should go over
well. Better yet, why not Dood. After all, as I
have already pointed out, the vav is read as a
long U when there is a dot in the middle of it.
The modern translations that want to relate to
the modern youth could spell him Dude. Think of
the great "Christian" rock lyrics that could come
from that. While we are at it why not call Moses
Mose instead of Moshe so it fits the atheist
scholars view that his name is related to an
Egyptian pharaoh with a similar name. Moshe could
also be Masih (Arabic for Messiah), Shlomo could
be Sulemaw, and Shmu'el could be Smiwal?
43
For those who still who are still confused about
the phonological issue of sound changes between
and within languages, the following
historical-linguistic summary from the World Book
Encyclopedia concerning the Y to J conversion as
it relates to English should be helpful. "The
sound of the Hebrew letter jod came into English
as the letter 'I,' used as a consonant and having
the soft 'g' sound, like today's 'j.' In the past
the letter 'I' was used as both a vowel (i) sound
and as the consonant 'j' sound. The OED says that
the sound of 'j,' though originally printed as
'I,' was pronounced as a soft 'g' (Oxford English
Dictionary, Unabridged, 2nd Edition, Oxford
Clarendon Press, 1991, s.v. J). The 'JE' sound in
JEHOVAH was spelled 'IE' and pronounced as 'JE.'
To distinguish the consonant sound (soft 'g') of
the letter 'I' from the vowel sound of 'I,' many
scribes in the 1200s began putting a tail on the
soft 'g' 'I',' making it look like our modern
'J.' The Spanish, in the 1500s, were the first to
more consistently try to distinguish the
consonant I (soft 'g') sound as the shape of a
'J.' At that same time English printers used 'J'
and 'I' fonts interchangeably (as documented
elsewhere in this book). During the 1600s, most
languages began consistently using the extended
'I' form, now called a 'J,' to represent the 'j'
(soft 'g') sound." quoted in Riplinger, p. 418
44
This movement to alter God's name with absolutely
nothing that resembles scriptural, textual, or
linguistic support, has misled huge numbers of
Christians into denying the Bible and accepting
the work of Bible-scoffing atheists who have
dominated the academic field of biblical studies
since the mid-nineteenth century.
45
If they deny what the KJV says about the name of
God, then they do not believe the KJV is God's
word. In fact, they do not believe that the
Hebrew Old Testament is God's word either,
because it clearly says Yehovah, which becomes
Jehovah in English pronunciation, and pronounced
He'ova in Spanish. If one can change that word
simply on a whim, which is all the Yahweh
spelling is, then they can deny the spelling of
absolutely any other word in the entire Hebrew
Bible.
46
In the 18th century John Gill outlined examples
of the Jehovah pronunciation going back before
the time of Christ. The following examples of its
use appear in Gill's work and are listed In Awe
of Thy Word "An occurrence from 277 B.C. (p.
249), Josephus in 70 A.D. (pp. 219, 221), the
Zohar from 120 AD, A copy of Lamentations from
200 AD, Origen in Psalm 250 quotes Psalm 11825
where Jehovah is mentioned three times, Jerome in
380 AD, and the grammarian Saadiah Gaon's book on
Hebrew diacritics cited the vowels of Jehovah."
47
many no longer "prove" anything if it comes to
them from some supposed learned scholar. Many of
these alleged scholars are members of secret
orders and mystic cult organizations, trying to
peddle their paganized heresies by infusing them
into the theologies and doctrines of the Church.
48
"Yehova, which was in agreement with the
beginning of all the theophoric names, was the
authentic pronunciation... (Yehovah in Hebrew
Jehovah in English)
49
To the left is a card from the witchcraft deck of
tarot. The four letters of the tetragrammaton are
spaced between each letter spelling tarot.
Read the letters clockwise you have tarot. Read
them backward and you find "Tora" an abbreviation
of "Torah." Those who believe in the four letter
tetragrammaton believe that all the Law of God
may be found reduced to the four letters YHWH.
Yahweh is not a Hebrew name. -Ency Brit 11Ed Vol
15 p 321
50
And, look to the left at the card. Who is that
red figure upon whom the whole revolving system
of Tarot, Tora, YHWH, and knowledge rest or
sabbaths, but the ole devil himself. Opposite the
red devil is his other form of the serpent, the
form and figure through which he deceives the
world. The Egyptian witch of mysticism sits upon
the circle as the revealer and protector (sword)
of the mystic name of Yah. My claims and
statements are against many scholars and sacred
high chairs of learning, which I have found to be
the blind leaders of the blind. To long the herd
instinct has taken over the Christian mind and
many no longer "prove" anything if it comes to
them from some supposed learned scholar. Many of
these alleged scholars are members of secret
orders and mystic cult organizations, trying to
peddle their paganized heresies by infusing them
into the theologies and doctrines of the Church.

"This hypothesis is not intrinsically
improbable--and in Aramaic, a language closely
related to Hebrew, "to be" actually is hawa--but
it should be noted that in adopting it we admit
that, using the name Hebrew in the historical
sense, Yahweh is not a Hebrew name" (Ency. Brit.
1958 Ed. Vol 12. p. 996).

Strongs renders the word "moon" in Genesis 379
from the Hebrew as "YAREACH 3394". This shows a
clear attempt at corrupting a word to make it
appear to be a different word and not lead a
person to see a connection between YAHREAH the
moon god and the guess name YAHWEH! Anyone with a
keen eye can see that YA-REAH and YAH-WEH are
identical except for the slight "r" sound twisted
into a "W"! What do we have here? We have a solid
proof that the name of the ancient name of the
moon god is the same name now said to be the true
name of God. YAHWEH and its tetragrammaton YHWH
or YHVH is not the name of the true God but the
name of the moon god!
What is a Yahwist? They are all moon god
worshipers! A Yahweh believer is any person who
believes YHWH (the tetragrammaton name of Baal)
pronounced Yahweh, is the name of God. Yahweh is
a guess name and is NOT THE NAME OF THE TRUE GOD.
Yahweh as it is spelled IS NOT A HEBREW NAME for
God!
53
Anyone, Jew or Gentile, who claims that the
sacred name given to Moses at the burning bush
was YHWH, Yahawah, Yahwah, Yahweh, Yihwah,
Yahshua, or any other "Yah" name are liars!
Anyone who claims that the sacred name is "YHVH"
or "YHWH" in this text and then make this into
"Yahweh," "Yahuweh," "Yahshua," or "Jehovah" are
liars. They may be educated liars, ignorant
liars, or stupid liars, but still liars. I am
making this bold and straight-forward statement
because the Yahwist and their lying demonic false
prophets have purposely perverted the Word of God
to insert their guess names
Yah" is the Egyptian name of Toth as the moon god.

Here in the Greek text of the Old Testament,
translated around 280BC we have the name of
Jesus. In the King James Version this "IESOUS" is
spelled Joshua. Scholars who have any
intelligence at all, know that "Jo" is the
Greecianized from of the Hebrew

Hebrew and it is "yareah" which is the same as
"Yahweh." Modern Hebrew spells it different now
to distort the real identity of their ancient Yah
god. They now spell it "yareach." No matter, real
scholars know the truth!

More Evidence Against YHWH Yahweh
The shocking discoveries continue to be made that
YHWH Yahweh is a false god. (side note for
anonymous even if you try to make YHWH into
IEUE, you still have a pagan god with an Asherah
wife. All you are doing is changing the
pronunciation from Yahweh to Ieue and it gets you
no where). What you are doing is adding another
layer of perversion on top of YHWH.
One of the facts that cannot be refuted, is that
YHWH Yahweh is a god who has a consort, a wife.
You can Google this and there is tons of
information. Just Google Yahweh consort Asherah.

Kuntillet Ajrud is an early 8th centuries BCE
site in the northeast part of the Sinai
peninsula. It is described as a shrine. The
fortress-like main building is divided into two
rooms. Both rooms contained paintings and
inscriptions on the walls. The paintings show
various animals, stylised trees, and human
figures, some of which represent gods. The
inscriptions are religious in nature, invoking
Yahweh, El and Baal, and include the phrases
"Yahweh of Samaria and his Asherah" and "Yahweh
of Teman and his Asherah." There is general
agreement that Yahweh is being invoked in
connection with Samaria (capital of the kingdom
of Israel) and Teman (in Edom) this suggests
that Yahweh had a temple in Samaria, and raises a
question over the relationship between Yahweh and
Kaus, the national god Kaus of Edom. The
"Asherah" is most likely a cultic object.

An potsherd inscribed egeliah, "bull-calf of
Yah," was found in Iron Age Samaria. It suggests
that the Bull-Calf was linked to the worship of
Yahweh, not some Egyptian god as suggested by the
Bible. I have argued elsewhere that YAHWEH IS THE
GOLDEN BULL-CALF, cf. my article titled The
Non-Egyptian Origins of Israel's Golden Calf
Worship (Yahweh is the Golden Calf ?) I further
understand that Yahweh is being portrayed on the
Ajrud potsherd as a Bull-calf, his consort,
Asherah,being a hornless Heifer, rather like
Baal-Hadad's ability to assume the form of a bull
to impregnate his lover, Anat, who takes on the
form of a Heifer, conceives, and gives birth to a
bull-calf.

What is Yahwehism? It is a modern cult movement
based upon the erroneous pronunciation of the
name of God taken from the tetragrammaton YHWH.
70
The word Yahweh is a modern scholarly convention
for the Hebrew ????, transcribed into Roman
letters as YHWH and known as the Tetragrammaton
Modern scholars see him originating in Edom, the
region south of Judah. The goddess Asherah may
have been Yahweh's consort in the earliest
period. Originally the god of the Iron Age.

Yahwist have been blaspheming the name of Jesus
now since around 1567 when Genebrardus invented
the guess name "Iahve, Jahve" (Chronographia,
Paris, 1567 (ed. Paris, 1600, p. 79 seq). How did
Genebrardus invent this new guess name? Actually
he borrowed from Clement of Alexandria (a
Platoist Gnostic early Catholic) the Greek
spelling IAOVE (Zeus), which is universally known
as JOVE (Roman Jupiter), and converted JAOVE to
YAOVE adding the H and dropping the O, hence
YAHVE! Yahve then is none other than Zeus or
Jupiter!
73
For acceptance of his new invention and to
support his new guess name, he went to the
Samaritians (enemies of God and Israel) and
borrowed IABE from their Bible. This he converted
to YABE and finally converting the B to a V he
arrived at YAVE, adding the H, since this letter
is silent he fabricated YAHVE. He felt secure Yah
was correct since this appeared in Psalms 684 as
Iah. He was unaware that Iah was a pregnant pagan
Egyptian falsehood replacing the original Ieh
(Yeh or Jeh) as first given by Moses and
incorporated in the new name he gave to Oshea. It
was after the death of Genebrardus that other
Yahwist dropped the letter V and a double U (UU)
or as now a W was added forming YAHWEH. This
hybrid rival name was proposed as the name of
God, claiming that Iehovah or Jehovah as found in
the Masoretic text was false. Those who have
adopted this Gnostic-Greek-Samaritian YAHVE guess
name, claim the name of Jesus is the name of a
pig God and blaspheme the worthy name of our
Messiah.
74
The guess name Yahweh is a Samaritan hoax
developed modernly by Genebrardus! The fabricated
name Yahshua is a falsehood! I will stand against
all Jews and Gentiles, scholars and idiots, who
claim otherwise. I am set in defense of the name
of Jesus Messiah (Christ). The guess name YAHWEH
is a modern FRAUD! It is NOT THE HEBREW NAME OF
GOD! It is the name of a demon at least and the
name of a false god at most. The fabricated name
YAHSHUA is a FRAUD! This fraud is not found in
any ancient manuscript of any language. Talk
about a made-up name glued to the Messiah, this
is the guilty name!

"Yah" is the Egyptian moon god and "Shu(a)" is
the Egyptian sky god http//www.ancient-egypt.org
/
Yah is also the goat god with whom also is
associated the moon. There is now available a
great amount of information on Yah, Yahweh,
Jehovah, Yahshua, and many other false names
being used for God and Jesus. Do not be deceived
by the modern law-keepers and sacred-name
Hebrew-roots movements that are full of heresy
and who deny the Lord Jesus Christ.
80
"Yah" is the Egyptian name of Toth as the moon
god. And "Shu" is the Egyptian sky god of the
heavens. Scroll down the link above until you
come to the subject title "The Lunar God." There
you will find the name of the moon god as "Iah"
which is the same as "Yah." When you glue Yah
Shu together to form "Yahshua" you have an
Egyptian moon god as the sky or heaven god. I am
shocked and amazed that such names are given to
Jesus Messiah without regard to a shred of
research. The name of Jesus is not "Yahshu or
Yahshua" and I condemn all who use it for the
Saviour!
81
The three names by which God was known before
this sacred name was revealed were "Elohim (God),
Adonai (LORD), and Elshaddai (God Almighty).
The Supreme being is called God, LORD God, and
Elshaddai or Almighty God. At the burning bush a
new covenant name was revealed. That name is
EHYEH! Ehyeh is translated for its meaning "I AM
that I AM" rather than the true name being in
translations. Then I AM that I AM is further
interpreted to mean "self existent, or the
eternal one." Lying Yahwist remove I AM that I AM
and interpolate the tetragrammatons "YHVH or
YHWH" and make this into "Yahweh, Yahuweh and
Yahshua". They totally ignore the sacred name of
"HYH" or "Ehyeh" with its proper vowels, because
the true sacred name of God plays no role in the
fraud and confusion they will afterward bring
upon the name of God.
82
The origins of Yahweh worship...it appears that
this cult was established before Deborah...Thus
Yahweh appears as an old deity of Sinai, revered
in untold antiquity as a weather-god... (The New
Schaff, Vol. XII, p. 472).
Many follow the pernicious ways, of these
false teachers who deny the Lord, of whom
the way of truth is evil spoken of (2 Peter
21-3).
83
Thousands of years ago, perhaps 3,600, the
name JEHOVAH was given by God to Moses. It is
seen first in Genesis 24 in the Hebrew Old
Testament and translated in Exodus 63 in the
KJV. In his scholarly book, A Dissertation
Concerning the Antiquity of the Hebrew Language,
Letters, Vowel-Points and Accents, John
Gill (1697-1771), eminent theologian and writer,
documents the use of the very name JEHOVAH from
before 200 B.C. and throughout the centuries of
the early church and the following millennium.
84
It is instructive to note that the modern
Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament
(TWOT), after going to great lengths to promote
the slur, Yahweh, is forced into the following
admission " Actually, there is a problem with the
pronunciation Yahweh. It is a strange combination
of old and late elements." In other words, they
can't find the evidence to support their attempt
to overturn the Masoretic decrees, and up until
the past couple of hundred years, the Masoretic
decrees were acknowledged as having been handed
down since Moses and Ezra.

Jehovist writers such as Nehemia Gordon, who
helped translate the "Dead Sea Scrolls", have
acknowledged the general agreement among scholars
that the original pronunciation of the
Tetragrammaton was Yahweh, and that the vowel
points now attached to the Tetragrammaton were
added to indicate that Adonai was to be read
instead, as seen in the alteration of those
points after prefixes. He wrote "There is a
virtual scholarly consensus concerning this name"
and "this is presented as fact in every
introduction to Biblical Hebrew and every
scholarly discussion of the name." Gordon,
disputing this consensus, wrote, "However, this
consensus is not based on decisive proof. We have
seen that the scholarly consensus concerning
Yahweh is really just a wild guess," and went on
to say that the vowel points of Adonai are not
correct. He argued that "the name is really
pronounced Ye-ho-vah with the emphasis on 'vah'.
87
To fabricate this new word for God, "Yahweh,"
scholars went to entirely non-biblical sources,
including history, philology, and rationalism,
making these sciences authoritative over the
Bible. Like most such modern "discoveries," the
"Yahweh" word is based entirely upon assumptions,
without one shred -- not one dot -- of evidence.
88
Of course, the only temple in existence at that
time for the true God of the Bible was in
Jerusalem, not Elephantine, so for them to equate
the YAHWEH of Elephantine, Egypt, with the
Jehovah of Jerusalem, was quite a leap indeed.
Yet, whenever somebody uses the name "Yahweh" for
God, they are equating the YHV whose temple was
in Elephantine, Egypt, with the God of the Bible
-- as insulting as that must be to our God!
89
JEHOVAH AWE 11
This assumption, along with the assumption that
this Egyptian literature was somehow more
authentic and more authoritative than the
preserved Word of God that Christians had used
for a couple thousand years, lead these modern
scholars to proclaim that God's name is not
Jehovah, but "Yahweh."
To these unbelieving scholars, Jehovah, the
almighty God of the universe, was nothing more
than an offshoot of the local pagan deity, Yaho.
90
Note that in English Bibles, only those from 1985
onward purvey the "Yahweh" pronunciation, while
"Jehovah" is documented in ancient sources as far
back as 277 BC. Who is your God? Is He the
almighty God of the Bible, Jehovah, or is he
created by modern-day scholars based on a local
pagan god?
