"Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break my heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for THE NAME of the Master YAHSHUA"
Shalom, Yah Fam
Powerful stuff!! Here is Paul declaring that not only was he prepared to be arrested and jailed in Jerusalem, but that he also was ready to die. Ready to die for what, exactly? Paul was ready to die for something as "small" as a single name. A name. One name.
Paul of 2,000 years ago realized that there is only one Messiah, not two, three or more. He also understood that this one Messiah was given just one name, a name that did not originate with man--a name that came from The Creator and Him alone. To Paul, the name of Yahshua was the name above every name.
It is written,
"Wherefore Elohim also has highly exalted HIM, and given HIM A NAME which is above EVERY name: That at the NAME OF YAHSHUA every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that YAHSHUA IS THE MESSIAH, to the glory of Elohim the Father"
Unlike the pastors, preachers, priests, and rabbis of today---Paul would not and did not replace the original name of the Messiah with a man-made name. He did not substitute the name of YAHSHUA for some other name. And if someone tried to persuade Paul into believing that some Gentile name from some so-called scholar was equal to the actual name given by the Creator, Paul would not have entertained such a blasphemous notion.
Paul knew that no other name could match the name of Yahshua in authority nor power. In fact, here is what Paul said about changing the original Gospel into another gospel:
"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of The Messiah unto ANOTHER GOSPEL:
Which is NOT ANOTHER; but there be some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the gospel of The Messiah.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach ANY OTHER gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, if ANY MAN preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed."
THE TRUE WORSHIPERS:
1. True Worshipers know that Yahshua is the name above every name
2. True Worshipers will never allow the name YAHSHUA to be substituted by another name
3. True Worshipers realize there is a huge difference between the Creator-Exalted name
from a man-made name
4. True Worshipers realize that to change the original Good News for another version
will bring down a curse, not a blessing
It is written:
"But the hour comes, and now is, when the TRUE WORSHIPERS shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeks such to worship him."
