Do you want vital information on world religions, misled Christianity, and our coming human
downfall in America and worldwide through these coming years?
Today, with so many people and cultures recognizing some sort of made-up god or gods, many
have come to believe – either ignorantly or deliberately (or both) – that all gods are ultimately
referring to the one true God – whatever name you want to call him or her. There’s this notion
of “the universe” – one authority in the cosmos that unites all the gods. For instance, many of
your friends – believers included – likely think that both Christians and Muslims serve the same
god, and just call him by a different name. Some would prefer that Christians go on thinking
this, because it promotes peace and unity of mankind. But Muslims don’t believe in or serve the
God of Israel, Yehovah, and when Yehovah’s followers acquiesce to believing in “God” instead
of using his name, we’re actually showing our naivety, allowing their god to be equal with
Yehovah, and robbing Yehovah of his glory.
When we don’t use the name Yehovah or specify the God of Israel, our hearers or readers can
insert whatever god they’d like, giving their god credence, glory, honor and visibility. In the
case of Muslims, they use their god’s name all the time, several times per day. We now live in a
world where more people know the name of the Muslim god, than the one true God – Yehovah.
The Power of the Name
Why would Yehovah inspire nearly every writer of the books of the Bible to use his name if he
didn’t want his people using it? In the books of Moses alone, the name YHVH (or יהוה ) is
spelled out in the Hebrew manuscripts over 1,600 times, beginning in Genesis 2:4. Imagine if
every time you saw the word “LORD” (in all caps) it read Yehovah or Yahweh (as some
pronounce it). You’d be seeing and saying his name nearly 7,000 times as you read through the
Bible. This was the intent of the authors of the Bible, and, might I add, of Yehovah himself
(“All scripture is inspired by Yehovah…” 2 Tim. 3:16).
Why does Yehovah want us using his name? In searching the scriptures for references to using
his name, I came to understand the many benefits of doing so.
(I have restored “Yehovah” where the word “LORD” appeared in the following verses.)
His Name Provides Strength & Protection
• Psalm 20:1, 7-8 (NASB) May Yehovah answer you in the day of trouble! May the name
of the God of Jacob set you securely on high! …Some boast in chariots and some in
horses, but we will boast in the name of Yehovah, our God. They have bowed down and
fallen, but we have risen and stood upright.
• Deuteronomy 28:7 & 10 (NASB) Yehovah shall cause your enemies who rise up against
you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee
before you seven ways…. So all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by
the name of Yehovah, and they will be afraid of you.
