Unfortunately, too many pastors and bishops have failed to comprehend the meaning which David intended when he first wrote it over 2,500 years ago.
Let's journey together and unlock its' hidden manna. Compare how David, the Hebrew, originally wrote Psalm 100 to how the Gentiles erred when they rewrote it. Make notes as to why and how the modern version reduces the authority of our Creator.
(as, originally, written by David)
1. Make a joyful noise to Yahweh, all you lands.
2. Serve Yahweh with gladness: come before His presence with singing.
3. Know ye that Yahweh He is Elohim: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
4. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.
5. For Yahweh is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to all generations.
Psalm 100 in Today's Christianity
1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
However, mainstream Christianity missed this vital point, entirely. The Gentiles replaced the Holy Name of Yahweh with the nameless generic title of The Lord. By removing Yahweh's true name from the Hebrew Scriptures shows that the Gentiles have little regard for the authority of Yahweh. This demonstrates not only gross negligence toward The Creator, but also reveals a high level of disrespect toward His true name.
Yahweh and The Lord are NOT the same, not even close.
David did not and would not remove the Creator's name from the scriptures and then replace it with a mere title. No true Hebrew servant of Yahweh would ever think to do such a thing. In fact, a true Hebrew servant of Yahweh would consider erasing and replacing the Holy name as an act of blasphemy.
Yahweh made us; we did not make ourselves
We are the sheep of HIS pasture
