The YAH Confusion and The Name of God

Proponents of non-Hebrew pronunciations of יהוה insist that the poetic shortened form Yah (יה) proves how to pronounce the Name of God. This is simply not true. No one is disputing that YAH is a reference to יהוה that exists in the Tanakh, although rare compared to the 6827 times יהוה is…

Does Yehovah Mean Lord of Destruction?

Does the Hovah in Hebrew only mean destruction? Hebrew root words, Hebrew root of  יהוה, meaning of Yehovah, hayah, היה, Yah, poetic form, name of God, lord

Was The Name of God Ever Unknown?

Almost every English translation of Exodus 6:3 gives something like “and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty, but by my name YHVH I was not known to them.” As a result another myth about the NAME exists that there was a point in time where…

Waking Up

In the last post I attempted to answer the question, “what happens when we die” and make the case that after death we simply sleep. We aren’t aware of the passage of time, so we actually are not aware of being asleep. As far as we know, right after death…

We’re All Going to Hell?

The belief systems constructed to answer “what happens when we die?” are prime examples of myths that have replaced God’s Truth. The answer is not hidden, not shrouded in mystery, it’s right there in the Bible. We sleep! It’s that simple. Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; Enlighten…
