Two Names of Salvation?

The names Yahweh and Yahushua (variant: Yahshua) seem to be the nominees. The general consensus among the various Sacred Name groups is that both names are really one and the same so the utilization of either would have the same salvation effect.

Reasoning is that the first part of the messiah’s name, Yah, contains the contracted form of the father’s name Yahweh therefore Yah = Yahweh. So for salvation purposes Yahushua = Yahweh.

Seems like a win-win situation for everyone. Or is it really?

How about we proceed to investigate what Scriptures have to say about the matter?

What Name?
Let’s start with some basics. Per Scriptures, what name was being utilized for salvation before Yahushua the messiah came in the flesh? Any guesses? One could assume that was too easy of a question.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved. (Joel 2:32)

Now the next question would be, Did anything change after the arrival of Yahushua the messiah in the flesh?

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved. (Acts 2:21)

The verse from Acts seems extremely familiar and any confusion can be eliminated once it is realized that Keph (Peter) was directly quoting from the book of Joel.

So far, Scriptures has shown us that there is one name, not names, to be called upon.

Name Above Every Name
Now here is where it can get a little confusing for some.

Wherefore also Yahweh highly exalted him (Yahushua) and granted to him A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME, that AT THE NAME OF YAHUSHUA EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and EVERY TONGUE SHOULD CONFESS that is sovereign, Yahushua the messiah, to the glory of Yahweh the father. (Philippians 2:9-11)

It is generally recognized that the above quote from Philippians is a paraphrase from Isaiah.

 I (Yahweh) have sworn by myself, the word has gone out of my mouth (in) righteousness, and shall not return; THAT TO ME (YAHWEH) EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, EVERY TONGUE SHALL SWEAR, and shall say, “Only in Yahweh  do I have righteousness and strength.” To him he will come; and all who are angry with him shall be ashamed. (Isaiah 45:23-24)

Also, in reference to the citation from Philippians regarding “A NAME WHICH IS ABOVE EVERY NAME” it should be noted that it is stated in Psalms what that particular name is.

Let them praise the name YAHWEH, for his name ALONE IS EXALTED; his glory is ABOVE THE EARTH AND THE HEAVENS. (Psalm 148:13)

So what name is it, Yahweh or Yahushua? Obviously, the contracted or shortened form “Yah Theory” just isn’t going to work. One of the basic rules of scriptural teaching is that when you don’t know the answer to a question then just say I don’t know. Don’t rely on someone else or make up the answer. It may sound good to many but, unfortunately, it just won’t pass the test of truth as demanded by Scriptures.

Scriptures expound the truth that Yahushua’s heavenly name was Yahweh all along. Of course his earthly name was Yahushua (Matthew 1:21) in addition to the earthly name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23).

What Does Yahu-shua Mean?
Next, Yahu-shua does not mean “Yahweh saves” as is popularly taught and accepted. When we let Scriptures define itself without human intervention the translation of the messiah’s earthly name reveals it to be “Yahu saves”!

To demonstrate this fact more discussion is in order so let’s continue onward with our investigation of Yahweh’s truth.

Before we proceed any further you will probably want to get a quick refresher on the name Yahushua from a previous post. Just click here: “Whats With the Yahu Spelling?

You might be thinking, Who is this Yahu person and where is he in Scriptures and is Yahu one of the saving names?

To alleviate any anxieties which you may have at this point, be assured that there is only one saving name and it is not Yahu, Yah, Yahshua, or Yahushua.

Yahushua Preexisted
First of all, it is without doubt that Yahushua the messiah preexisted as a ruach (spirit) being. The apostle John, in reference to Yahushua as the logos (innermost expression, word), writes:

In the beginning was the logos, and the logos was with the deity (the father), and the logos was a deity. He was in beginning with the deity (the father) . . . And the logos became flesh, and tabernacled among us. (John 1:1-2, 14)

Yahushua was the creator under father Yahweh. More precisely, by means of Yahushua, father Yahweh created all things.

All things were made by him (logos); and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:3)

Therefore it was the logos who is identified as Yahweh eloahim who created Adam.

Then Yahweh eloahim formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7)

It was the preexistent Yahushua who appeared as the ruach being/angel named Yahweh to Moses in the burning bush and spoke to him.

And the angel Yahweh appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush . . . When Yahweh saw that he turned aside to see, eloahim called to him out of the bush, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here am I.” (Exodus 3:2-4)

Yahushua is identified by John the baptist as having the name Yahweh and also as being one of the eloahi (ruling member of the eloahim). John the baptist cites Isaiah which states:

The voice of one calling in the wilderness, Prepare the road of Yahweh, make straight in the desert a highway for our eloahi. (Isaiah 40:3)

The Name Yahweh Tampered With
As any teacher of Yahweh’s truth is aware, due to the ineffable name doctrine pervasive among the early Jewish religious factions, the sacred name Yahweh has been tampered with in Scriptures. Just the fact that the name Yahweh has been vowel pointed numerous times in Scriptures by the Jewish scribes for the purpose of guiding the reader to read adonai or eloahim instead is a simple demonstration of this fact.

Another demonstration of the tampering of Scriptures by Jewish scribes is the stripping out of the Hebrew letter ו (waw) from various names within the same document.

For example, in 2 Kings 15:8, a person is named Zakar-Yahu (Remembered of Yahu), while in 2 Kings 15:11, the same person is called Zakar-Yah. The list is extensive.

This would also help explain the phrase found in Psalms recognizing that the ו (waw) should be restored to Yahu:

Halalu Yahu halalu ath Yahweh . . .; Praise Yahu, praise את (ath; this particular) Yahweh . . .; (Psalm 148:1)

Now consider the following citations from Isaiah (again, the waw is restored to Yahu):

Behold, el is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Yahu Yahweh is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. (Isaiah 12:2)

Trust in Yahweh for ever, for Yahu Yahweh is an everlasting rock. (Isaiah 26:4)

Add the following verse and things become more interesting (the waw is restored to Yahu):

Yahu is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. (Psalm 118:14)

As the above scriptural verses indicate, the praenomen of the ruach being or angel Yahweh is Yahu. Additionally indicated is the fact that the full name of this angel as rendered in Scriptures is Yahu Yahweh. The praenomen Yahu also specifically identifies which particular Yahweh appeared and spoke to the patriarchs saying:

I am the eloahi of your father, the eloahi of Abraham, the eloahi of Isaac, and the eloahi of Jacob. (Exodus 3:6)

Now enters scriptural logic. According to Scriptures the angel identified as Yahu Yahweh became the man Yahushua the messiah and did not die in the transformation process.

And the angel said to her, “The sacred ruach will come upon you, and the power of the most high will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called sacred, the son of the deity.” (Luke 1:35)

It would then follow that Yahushua, after becoming a man, would have retained the name Yahweh as the surname given to him by father Yahweh. The only time that Yahu Yahweh is recorded in Scriptures to have died is when he was put to death as a man on the torture stake.

By now you should be getting a good idea where all this is leading. Simply put, there was a very good reason for the messiah to be named Yahushua. In regard to one’s salvation Yahushua explicitly states:

I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Only One Saving Name
By trying to make the name Yahushua equal to the sacred name Yahweh, many people have been trying to force a square peg into a round hole. No one attains salvation by the names Yah, Yahu, Yahshua, or Yahushua.

There is only one name of salvation given in Scriptures. Remember Joel 2:32! If you’re a New Testament individual then go to Acts 2:21.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved. (Joel 2:32)

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be saved. (Acts 2:21)

Yahweh is the only name of salvation that is proclaimed throughout all of Scriptures!

It is the person Yahu Yahweh, who was also given the earthly name Yahu-shua (Yahu saves), who gives salvation by the same name given to him and shared by father Yahweh, the one and only sacred name Yahweh.

Who was that masked man anyway?
