Our understanding of how to address and refer to Elohim (God)
Be it known unto you all ... that by the name of Yahusha Messiah (Jesus Christ) of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom Elohim (God) raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. ... Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:10-12 - KJV)
The Bible tells us about the power in Elohim's Name yet in much of Christianity His Name has been diluted and reduced to a set of titles. The language and culture of the Bible is largely Hebrew but this essential cultural context has been tragically lost by some in His church.
Ex. 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of El-Shaddai (God Almighty), but by my name Yahuah (YHWH) was I not known to them.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahusha Messiah (Jesus Christ) for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Elohim's Name is very precious. It is the essence by which He refers to Himself. It is an intrinsic part of His identity and how He reveals Himself to us - this applies also to Messiah.
Though there is much debate about how to pronounce His Name, following extensive research we have concluded that the terminology best used is as follows:
- For 'God' we use the title 'Elohim'
- For 'Jesus' we use the Name 'Yahusha'
- For 'LORD' we use 'Yahuah'
- For 'Lord' (Adonai or Master) we use Messiah's Name, Yahusha.
Throughout the rest of this site we have made every effort to use this naming convention. Feel free to ask us questions about His Name using the contact us form.
