Here is a life-saving question that we will tackle in a short series of posts:
What is the secret to eternal life?
Let's take a close look at the following verse and then let's go to work at discerning.
"Now this is eternal life: that they know YOU, the only true Elohim, and Yahshua The Messiah, whom YOU have sent."
This verse makes it clear that your eternal life, as well as my own, is based on whether or not you KNOW both The Creator and The ONE whom HE, actually, sent to die for us. Wow! Is that it? Is that the secret to eternal life? Could it really be that simple?
Well, if "knowing Him" is the secret, then the question should now be, "Where do we start our journey in getting to know the ONLY true Creator and the actual man whom He sent as the Messiah?"
I don't know about you, after really studying this verse it occurred to me that a substitute Creator and Messiah will NOT do. We must recognize that the fate of our souls are on the line and a man-made traditional version of the Father and Son is NOT the same as what is being described in John 17:3.
1. Pastors who refuse to use the true and original Holy name of our Creator, YAHWEH ELOHIM, exclusively. Instead, they minimize the mighty name of Yahweh and raise the nameless and generic titles of Lord and God over and above His Holy name. So, now we call on man made titles rather than knowing and calling on the True name of our heavenly Father Yahweh Elohim.
This traditional blasphemy taught by the church is clearly exposed by Yahweh's Prayer (which so many mistake as The Lord's Prayer).
From Yahweh's Prayer:
Our Father who is in heaven
hallowed be YOUR NAME
The evidence is clear that the true name of our heavenly Father is to remain Holy and uncontaminated.
Again, what is blocking us from knowing The ONLY TRUE CREATOR and The ACTUAL Messiah whom He Sent?
2. This is an obstacle: Not knowing this warning found in the scriptures:
"If you wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and fearful name, YAHWEH your ELOHIM;
Then Yahweh will make your plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great
plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
Plagues for not honoring and respecting the "glorious AND fearful name of YAHWEH ELOHIM?!!! This is no joke. This is serious.
To replace the of Yahweh Elohim with Lord, God, Jehovah, Allah, etc will bring down consequences which none of us want to face. It's time to re-evaluate the names we call the Father and Son and get in line with the scriptures.
This is Step 1 in the process of coming to know the ONLY true Elohim and the actual man whom He (Yahweh) sent. Think about it. I often relay to the students at Yahshua University that the first step in building any "meaningful" relationship is the exchange of each other's names. We start there...with His true and Holy name.
We must get the name right. If you really want that "close and personal relationship" with The Creator and His Son, then getting His name right, first, is the way to go.
Share your thoughts below and honor that "glorious and fearful name of Yahweh Elohim."
