Was Jesus nailed to the cross by the hands or by the wrists?

All my life I have seen and read that Jesus was affixed to the cross by piercing his hands with nails.  Nevertheless, in this later decade I have seen many pictures in which Jesus is depicted as being nailed to the cross through his wrists.  I have heard also some weird scholars backing this nonsense.  I am going to demonstrate this false with three different arguments:  a) anatomically, showing that the hand certainly can hold the weight of a person; b) anatomically and biblically, showing that they could not pierce Jesus’ wrists, because it would break one or more of his bones, and  c) biblically only, showing that the Bible says that it was Jesus’ hands that were pierced.
First argument. Those who say that Jesus was nailed through the wrists allege that a human body cannot be held to a cross by nailing its hands to it, because the flesh would give way, the hand would rip, and the person would fall.  This is a lie.
Those who say such a thing never have seen the dissection of a human body.  I have seen many times the hand being studied in cadavers, by  medical students.  During their first year they have to study anatomy.  At that time they have to dissect not only the hand but also the whole body.
The conjunctive tissue of the body of humans and animals is stronger than a rope. Tendons, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises are conjunctive tissues.  The hand is full of them, as you can see in pictures # 1 and # 2.
All these pictures are taken from the book  “An Atlas of Anatomy”,  by  J. C.  Boileau Grant,  M.C.; M.B.;  Ch. B.; F.R.C.S. Edin,  Professor Emeritus of Anatomy in the University of Toronto, Fourth Edition.  Pictures numbers 57, 84, 92 and 98.

Picture # 2  Dorsum of the hand

It is not possible that tendons of a person’s hands, transverse ligaments and aponeurosises, pierced by a nail, give way to let the weight of the body rip the hand, because conjunctive tissue is very strong.  This would only happen in a rotten body, not in a living man.  This wouldn’t happen even if the body of Christ was hung from only one hand, much less from both.  It is not true that Christ was pierced from the wrists.  This lie was introduced into Christianity by its enemies, especially by the Russellites.
You may think that your delicate hands would be ripped apart if they were hung.  What you need to remember is that Christ’s hands were carpenter hands.  Today, you can get an idea about how strong Christ hands were by looking at the hands of any 33 year old carpenter who has been in building houses since he was a teenager.
Second argument.  According to the Scripture, Jesus Christ is our Passover Lamb, who was going to be sacrificed.  That is why he was killed the very same day that the Passover lamb was to be killed.  Paul says so in I Co 5: 7.

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are
        unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us
( I Co 5: 7 )

In the ordinances of the Passover it is established that no bone must be broken in the lamb. It was a shadow of what was going to happen later with Jesus, to whom no bone was broken.  The Passover ordinances say as follows:

In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh
        abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.”
( Ex 12: 46 )

They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it:
        according to all the ordinances of the Passover they shall keep it.”
( Nm 9: 12 )

As we can see, the rite of the Passover forbade breaking any bone of the lamb. That is why the Roman soldiers did not break Jesus’ legs when they brought him down from the cross.  God would not let them do so.

Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other
        which was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that
        he was dead already, they broke not his legs; but one of the soldiers with a
        spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. And
        he that saw it bare record, and his record is true; and he knoweth that he saith
        true, that ye might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture
        should be fulfilled: A bone of him shall not be broken.”
( John 19: 32 – 36 )

If any bone of Jesus Christ could not be broken, then a nail could not have been driven through his wrists, because then for sure his wrist bones would be broken.  The wrist has eight bones: scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform, trapezium, trapezoid, capitate and hamate. These bones are kept tightly together by ligaments, in such a way, that if you drive a nail through the wrist you have to pierce and break some of them.  Therefore, Jesus could not be nailed by the wrists, but by the palm of the hand.  The five metacarpal bones which constiture the palm of the hand, are separate from each other, and thus a nail can be driven between two of them without breaking any.  See picture # 3.  This means that the hand can be pierced by a nail without breaking a bone, but if the wrist is pierced by a nail, it necessarily will break one or more bones.  See picture # 4.
Picture # 3  Bones of wrist, palm and fingers

The section of the wrist of the former picture, is enlarged in the next picture so that you can see that it is impossible to drive a nail through the wrist without breaking a bone.
Picture # 4  Bones of the wrist

Third argument.  Above and beyond all these “anatomical” arguments are the biblical arguments.  In the Bible it says several times that Jesus was pierced at his hands and his feet.  It never ever mentions the wrists.  Why then are people trying to instill in us, by means of pictures and conferences, that Jesus was nailed at his wrists?  What are they up to?
Let us see what Jesus said when he showed himself to apostles.

The other disciples therefore said unto him: We have seen the Lord. But
        he said unto them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put
        my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not
        believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas
        with them; then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
        said: Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas: Reach hither thy finger,
        and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and
        be not faithless, but believing.”                                           ( John 20: 25-27 )

As we can see in this passage, Thomas knew that Jesus’ hands were pierced, not his wrists. He expected  a hole in his hands, not in his wrists. When Jesus came to them a second time, he showed Thomas his hands, not his wrists. It is evident that it was his hands that were pierced by the nails, not his wrists.  This same thing  can be noticed in other passages.  Let us see them.

And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then
        were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.”
( John 20: 20 )

And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled?; and why do thoughts arise
        in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself; handle me,
        and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. And when
        he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.”
( Luke 24: 38- 40 )

In these two passages we see that for the purpose of identifying himself Jesus showed them his hands and his feet, not his wrists and his feet.
If we go to the prophecies of the Old Testament we will also see that when foretelling what Jesus was going to go through, they talked about his hands, not about his wrists.

For dogs have compassed me; the assembly of the wicked have inclosed
        me: they pierced my hands and my feet.”                             ( Psalms 22: 16 )

And one shall say unto him: What are these wounds in thine hands? Then
        he shall answer:  Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”
( Zech 13: 6 )

There is not the slightest doubt that Jesus was pierced through his hands and not through his wrists, like some weird scholars now want us to believe.
Nevertheless, I will not be surprised if one of these days some weird scholar declares that Jesus was nailed to the cross by his ankles, not by his feet.

There are now some questionable “scholars” that are trying to convince Christians that in ancient times, people never did make a difference between “hand” and “wrist”, in order to justify that Jesus was nailed by the wrist. This is false. In ancient times they made a difference between hand and wrist. Both, Latin and Greek have a word for wrist: in Latin, it was, “carpus”, and in Greek it was pronounced very similar but written ,“carpoz”. What these dubious scholars say is not true.

Remember who you are!

We humans are prone to various forms of amnesia. For instance, many people look to buy various items or “collections” to make themselves “feel” better when all it does is put them in debt, again and again. At times, we may be tempted to allow ourselves to fall prey to letting a bill slide “just this month” for the extra cash, forgetting how difficult catching up on the “one bill” is later. There are other types of amnesia too. Such as a young woman may find herself attracted to the same “bad boy” type forgetting how badly the last encounter of this type went or someone may go out to get “smashed” on Friday forgetting how sick they were last Saturday. All of these and many more scenarios are typical of our “convenient” loss of memory at times.

All of these instances have something in common, besides our lack of memory. Actually they have a couple things in common. First, they are all related to “the flesh” and living in the world and second they are all temptations of the enemy. Now you may say…”well, yeah we have to live in the world after all that is where we are”. Yep that is so true. BUT, our Master Yahushua, told us to live IN the world but DO NOT be part of the world.

So how can we do that? We can’t on our own, on our own we will fall prey to Satan every time, one way or another. He has had thousands of years to study our nature. He personally knew our family members long passed. He knows our weaknesses better than we do by far and on our own we are hunted like a fenced in deer. But when we live IN Yahushua as He lives IN us…now the enemy becomes the hunted and suddenly the odds are ALL in your favor! Now you have HSP rather than ESP…Holy Spirit perception. He lets you know what is around every corner before you get there and if you do fall into trouble…all you have to do is call out to your Kinsman Redeemer, your Messiah will save you, over and over and over. Till you learn to listen to ONLY Him. Till you learn to ask Him before you do anything. Until you realize that when you attempt to do your will and have your way…you always fall prey to a waiting predator, Satan. He is patient, he is smart, he is stealth and he is NOT prone to amnesia.

But you, my friend, more likely than not, if you are reading this have an on going relationship with our King of Kings. YOU are a child of THE Most High Elohim! You are a Royal Priesthood! That is your heritage. That is your birth right now. Satan holds NO sway over you IF you are doing what you should. If you are under attack look at yourself. Where are you falling short in your service to Yahweh? When are you not hearing Him? Who is controlling your life…you or Him? Once you do that you will find the problem, fix it and Satan will once again be hiding from YOU.

You have only to get into the passenger seat, let Him do the driving and when you meet with adversity or temptation…REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.

May Yahweh bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand always.

From STEVE QUAYLE’S website:

The Lord gave me a picture of the ‘Super Bowl’ event and what may come to pass. I really wasn’t sure what to make of it honestly, but so much of what is written in that letter resembles what I saw.

Hi Steve,
My wife and I were just reading with much curiosity your post about the Super Bowl 2014 false flag event letter that was sent to Before It’s News and other news site. The Super Bowl has been quite a topic of conversation for us in the last couple of weeks because on January 7 the Lord gave me a picture of the event and what may come to pass. I really wasn’t sure what to make of it honestly, but so much of what is written in that letter resembles what I saw.

Here is a transcript of what I wrote on January 7 in my journal. I also scanned the page and attached it to the email so you can see that I really did receive a picture on that day.

Superbowl 2014
As in all Super Bowls, there are interesting accidents and disclosures.
Janet Jackson. Beyoncé.
But be careful about calling everything a conspiracy, what is only smoke and mirrors.
However, this Super Bowl will be different.
Do you see the picture I am giving you?
Helicopters flying overhead.
Panic in the bleachers.
A mysterious fog released into the air.
On such a cold night!
Now do you see the explosions?
Look at the date of the game: 2/2/14.
The vans parked outside.
Mass hysteria.
Men in backpacks, as in the Boston bombings.
The same players.
The Dark Knight.
The explosion of something–a missile?–entering the stadium from above, through the dome.
Many will die.
For a time the location of the president will be unknown.
These things I have shown you so that you might know that the time is getting short.
The day of the LORD is at hand.
Destruction and chaos resound.
There is mayhem in the marketplace.
But always remember that those who call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.

{End of vision}

I emailed Dave Hodges and Nathan Leal about the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago. Dave Hodges reminded me that there is a movie called Black Sunday about a terrorist attack that takes place during a Super Bowl. I am sure there is other Illuminist symbolism here for the trained eye. I would love to know if the LORD has given any prophetic words/visions to anyone else, or if anyone has any more insight/intel as to what might be going on. I guess we will know soon enough on February 2. In the meantime I suggest we all be praying fervently that any plans in the making would be thwarted by the King of Kings and His body of prayer warriors and soldiers who are willing to stand with Him in this late hour.

Thanks Steve. I appreciate you and love hearing your radio messages, particularly the recent ones you have been doing with Pastor Langford on the Hagmann report.

From BEFORE IT’S NEWS:

SuperBowl False Flag “TreasonBowl” Letter Sent to Before It’s News

We received this letter yesterday from an anonymous source via US mail.  Before It’s News is just a conduit for your news and we thought this information might be of value to our readers.  Here is the fulltext of this letter, from people who claim to have worked on the design and contruction of the new MetLife Stadium (original jpeg scans of the letter are below the text).  The upside down American flag stamp on the outside of the envelope is an interesting touch. Video report also below.

The Treason Bowl February 2, 2014 at the Meadowlands Sports Complex

Hello,

For reasons soon to be obvious to you, I will not introduce myself, nor any of the others who have contributed to this notification. We have been involved with the construction and operation of the new MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex. Some of our involvement precedes the groundbreaking, and some of our involvement is current.

From here on, I will refer to the upcoming Super Bowl as the “Treason Bowl”.

From the start, from design stages, plans have been made for the stadium, and the American Dream Meadowlands complex, to host a well-planned false flag event, so grand that one would think it was planned in the offices of Josef Goebbles himself. This has been in the works for at least six years.

The highlight of this treason will be the world-wide live television coverage of this abomination of civilization. This promotion of fear and horror is hoped to inspire the masses of the world to willfully submit to the eradication of rights given to us by God.

In the very design of the stadium, spots were planned for the placement of bombs, not to immediately kill the stadium guests, but to entrap the guests. The bomb placements are for the creation of choke points to control the movement of the guests.

Remember, the highlight is the international live broadcast of desperate human suffering. It will first be answered by military-ized police and thug-like New Jersey state police, but to ONLY be resolved by US Army troops from Ft. Dix.

The fix is in; racketeering at its finest hour.

You may notice that the New Jersey State Police Sports Complex Unit has a noticeable high percentage of troopers that are very big, look like thugs, and we assure you – act like thugs. Seven of us have witnessed experiences with them, with varying degrees of rudeness, misery and disgust. There are traitors within this local state police force who will be enabling the apparent foreigners, in the stadium and in the whole complex. It has been harder for us to be exact with numbers of US federal agents in on the false flag fix, but we have confirmed they to be from DHS, NSA, FBI and Blackwater.

For the Treason Bowl, there may be as many as 11 armed “foreign terrorists” in the stadium itself, being another 8 of them in the rest of the complex, including Meadowlands Station.

A heavier-than-air poison gas will be brought in with the C02 canisters that are used by soft drink vendors. It will not be a quick killer as chlorine gas, but rather a gas that causes more physical contortions and suffering, for high-impact live video. This heavier-than-air poison will first target the field level, most notably the athletes on the field. Specific placement of bombs will insure that no one leaves the field level, ala the closed choke points.

False flag Islamic demands will be posted for the release of “freedom fighters” in Guantanamo, but primarily for the exit of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

For those of you who haven’t figured it out yet, about the extensively drawn out Afghan occupation by a supposedly mighty military (with untold hundreds of billions of dollars worth of military resources AND high-tech intelligence resources), against an out- manned (and out-gunned) rebel alliance with a mysterious decade-plus bottomless supply of resources -> it’s all about the three pipelines – the now-complete Caspian Sea oil and natural gas pipelines to China and points in between, and the heroin pipeline to developed countries in the west, especially our country. The continuing vagueness of the Afghan occupation should be as obvious as the nose on your face, and should consume your curiosity. The lot of us here are amazed how this realization escapes the most of you. Of course our senses are heightened on this matter, having learned for the past 6 years of the pending evil and doom of the 2014 Treason Bowl.

There were scattered warnings before the successful treasonous coup de tat of Sept 11. The warnings were not heeded, mostly because such a display of treason wasn’t so believable at the time, as much as it is believable now. After that event, those previous warnings were given the status as if they came from the Bellevue nut ward, even though the event itself showed the warnings to be very accurate.

An aside here: one of us has a relative who was one of the many NYFD officers who heard the meticulous floor-by-floor demolition explosives in the World Trade Towers.

The obvious, but never to be explained, breakdown of the tax-payer-financed multi- hundred-billion-dollar-a-year U.S intelligence community is well underway, again.

You must recognize that treasonous orchestrations of such grand scale can only be accomplished with the bottomless pockets of intel agencies, with secrecy as their ally.

Rest assured that “treason” is the correct word for the event. The former military explosives experts of contractor Blackwater will be placing the bombs.

We’re told that the FBI is complete with the fabrication of evidence.

(This reminds me of the NY State Trooper C evidence-fabricating scandal. This time it’s federal, with NJ state police help, and much bigger targets.)

DHS gumshoes have covertly infested the operations of the whole complex, supplying reports as to the progress of the logistics of this fabulous false flag murder fest, and hoping to identify any Meadowlands Complex workers who may be getting savvy to the treasonous ploy of federal agencies, and subversive NJ state police.

The daily security of Met Life Stadium currently is anal retentive and far beyond what our contemporaries at other sports arenas have reported in their facilities.

Specific state police officers are tasked to enable the alleged “terrorists” to their assigned placement for the horrendous and sinister festivities in the first half of the third quarter, when this conspiracy theory will no longer be a theory.

DHS appears to be the overall planners and coordinators, while drawing upon the resources of other federal groups, especially the NSA. The NSA seems to have the planned psychological blueprint for the multiple-day death, horror and hostage event. Psychological operations have been part of their original mission since 1952, to counter the brainwashing of Korean War captives. NSA has always done psycho activities, and blamed the CIA for most of it.

Our hope here is that the Treason Bowl could be abated per this warning. Much depends on high-visibility circulation of this warning. Just the same, you may want to cheer for your favorite team to lose in the conference finals, in triple overtime of course.

Good Night, and Good Luck.

This is no joke guys the evil surrounding this day is intense and our prayers need to be also intense. Please join me in a fast that will begin at rising and end at sunset for the release and safety of all the victims of this worldwide as well as for the aversion and exposure of all evil plans and people everywhere BEFORE they can carry out their evil deeds! Yah bless you all.

ALERT: May Yahweh bless you and protect you

The Ruach HaQodesh/Holy Spirit has shared something with me that I must share with you all. This came towards the end of a 3 day fast and was a revelation of something that is coming to the central United States. I was not told when but I am aware that it will be soon. I ask that you receive this message and pray about it to see what the Father wants you to do. I know that I was put here by the Father in the area that I now reside in, I know that I am a watchman on the wall and I must sound the alarm when I am shown a danger. I will try to lay this out for you as it was presented to me by our Father. I pray that your eyes are open and your heart is willing to hear this message. I pray that you take it to the Father in prayer and ask for His instruction to you in your life. I pray that our Father’s protection, strength, wisdom and His gifts be upon all His children with His peace in their hearts stemming from unshakable faith and His courage to guide us all to safety. Let us all be able to see the Pillar of Fire Father that leads us every step of the way. In Yahushua HaMashiach/Jesus Christ the Messiah’s Holy, Perfect Name. Amen.

This took place between me and my friend, YahushuaMyAll from YouTube. While one thing was being shown to me, another was being shown to her. When we spoke the pieces of the puzzle came together. YahushuaMyAll received this video message:

 

Snow began falling by me and I went to AccuWeather to see the forecast. As I was doing so I came across this map image and information:

Flood

Sorry for it being somewhat blurry but I enlarged it so you could read the codes. As soon as I saw this the Ruach immediately made me think of the Navy maps I have seen regarding the results of the New Madrid Fault Line becoming active. These maps show America basically cut in two by the Great Lakes dumping down into the Gulf and the Gulf rising to meet them. If you look at this map it is showing flood alerts that depict this scenario on a much smaller scale. Is this a warning from the powers that be? Or is this a warning from Yahweh, the Almighty? Is Yahweh telling us on no uncertain terms…split Jerusalem and I will split America? I believe this is exactly what He is telling us as a nation.

The very same day that Japan sided with the PA at the UN….that SAME DAY….the 9.0 earthquake that ravaged their country and changed their lives and ours forevermore took place. Fukushima is still belching out untold amounts of radioactive waters into the Pacific on a daily basis. The soldiers stationed on ships in that area are coming down with various forms of cancer at an unprecedented rate. Our snow is radioactive, as are the beaches in California. For the moment the central US is somewhat sheltered from any contaminated waters…but that will soon end as this spreads across the world. It would be considerably quickened if the Gulf waters poured right into the center of the US. Millions would die just from the initial deluge…Chicago would most likely completely vanish from the map as would many other areas. The devastation would be on a scale we have never before had to face because the hand of the Father sheltered us. His hand will then be raised against us. Our protection completely gone. We would be totally on our own. Just look at Japan to see what happens when you are left on your own…the dark forces pour in and you are at their mercy. And they have NO MERCY.

Pray for Israel, pray that Barack Hussein Obama changes his stance and once again supports our friend as we have in the past. Pray for instruction in your own life and ask Him where He wants you to be. If you are following Him and are where He places you then you will be safe. DO NOT FEAR. Fear only feeds the dark side and lets them grown stronger…starve the enemy by having complete faith and confidence that our Father will enact His judgement while keeping us safe as He did in the Exodus. And of course, if you do not have a close relationship with our Father…NOW, IMMEDIATELY would be the time to begin one. Once the judgements begin may be too late for you to be taken to safety. Why anyone procrastinates on having His loving arms around you, His guidance in your everyday life, the amazing depth, vitality, interest, fascination that each day brings in His presence…you have NO IDEA what you are missing out on!!! Life without Him was unbearable, life with Him is awe inspiring and supernaturally wonderous. Everything but Him just naturally falls away because NOTHING can compare to Him. Come to Him now and find out what I am talking about…ask Him to reveal Himself to you. He will, I promise you that. Ask Him and see.

Aaron’s Blessing: Numbers 6

24 May Yahweh bless you and protect you;

25 may Yahweh make His face shine on you and be gracious to you;

26 may Yahweh look with favor on you and give you peace.

27 In this way they will pronounce My name over the Israelites, and I will bless them.”

Another Prophecy

 Jesus Second Coming3

Cosmic Disturbance

“My daughter, keep trusting in Me to reveal Myself more fully to you in these dark times.  The cosmic event is truly upon you now and you will receive more warning in the coming days to give you time to prepare for this event. 

There is more coming, My child, than you could possibly imagine, but there is to be no fear in your heart for I have fore-ordained everything that is to come to pass.  My children will be infused with power from on high and through My Holy Spirit will be sent out as witnesses to bring in the last harvest before the door closes.

Before this is to take place, you will experience a sudden cataclysmic event caused by a cosmic disturbance that will be seen and heard all over the world.  When this event comes to pass you will know that the three days of darkness are upon you.  You must go to your homes and stay indoors.  My angels will protect you from harm.  There will be time between the cosmic event and the darkness falling for you to go to your homes with your families and remain safely inside.  I will be giving each one of you specific instructions through My Holy Spirit at that time.  My angels will be surrounding your homes and properties and keeping you safe from the evil one and the coming darkness.

This is all I am giving you now.  I will give you more later as the time for this event comes closer.

Your Jesus ~ Your Bridegroom”
Joel 2:28-32 (NKJV)
28 “And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
32 And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.
For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,
As the Lord has said,
Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.
See also Acts 2:14-21
Deuteronomy 33:27a (NKJV)
The eternal God is your refuge,
And underneath are the everlasting arms.
Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV)
Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”.
Psalm 17:8 (NKJV)
Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.

More Prophecies

Blow the Trumpet! Calling a 7 Day Fast for the Harvest August 23rd – 30th!

I will be joining in this fast for my family members and friends. I am, as yet, unsure exactly how He will call me to fast for the 7 days, I still have to pray on that and see. But I feel this in my heart of hearts and will be joining in in some way and I hope that some of you do as well:) God bless ALL!

UPDATED!! Prayers and scriptures to help you out during the fast.
August 22, 2013 by Sarah Beveridge

Praying the Will and Word of God
The key to intercessory prayer is praying the will and word of God, and believing by faith that God means exactly what He says in the scriptures.
 
Jesus instructed us how to pray:
Matthew 6:9-13 Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
 When Jesus was fasting for 40 days in the wilderness, satan tempted Him. Mat 4:1-11 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”
The word of God is powerful! The Lord Jesus would have His people to understand the power He has given us if we will just have faith in what His word proclaims.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

 
2 Timothy 2:9 …the word of God is not bound!
 
Ephesians 6:17 …the sword of the Spirit is the WORD of God.

Reading, studying and believing the word of God gives the Holy Spirit something to work with and build upon in us!

Scriptures and prayers for the harvest, and for Christians to overcome in Christ.
My Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you in the name of Jesus Christ to pray your will and your word on behalf of all Christians everywhere who are not overcoming in Christ. Lord I also pray for billions of souls to be harvested for the Kingdom of God in these last days.

Heavenly Father, I believe your word and I stand in faith on your promises that if I ask anything in the name of Jesus you will do it.

Lord I stand in the gap for all Christians who are not overcoming in their walk with Christ. Lord you said in 2 Peter 2:19 For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. So I break the yoke of bondage and slavery to (whatever it is) right now in Jesus name and I declare that your people are FREE to overcome. Lord I pray for these struggling Christians to be yoked to ONLY YOU!
 
I declare your word over them to loose all bonds and strongholds and to fill them with your truth and declare in Jesus name that they are set free to be who you have called them to be in Christ Jesus.

Miracles, Faith, & receiving “a love of The Truth”! By “elderchild”

Seems it is time to respond to the pagan catholic and christian attempts at justifying and attempting to “explain” what they believe by solely relying upon words recorded on paper. Words which are to them naught but “colored marks written on a dead tree”. Translated words bound in a book, all versions of which are biased and perverted in accordance with the religious dogma of the translators )-;
And as they “use” and abuse a portion of the written words, seeking to “prove” their own brand of theo’ry’logy(religion), they will say, “i need no other proof”! Sadly, their biased and perverted “readers digest” version of The Testimonies becomes their “god”, the only ‘god’ they ‘know’ )-;
Such is the pagan “catholic and christian” way, which IS religion’s way )-;

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2007/09/christianity-is-anti-messiah.html

The one who contends with them, who contends for The Faith, REALizes there must be more to The Life than mere words stored in that area above the neck, or worse yet, only known as they are “seen” naturally on a piece of paper and then USED to prove a “point”, and/or “convince” one who does not believe as they do )-;
Sadly, multitudes follow the pagan “catholic and christian” ‘way’ )-;
1. Read those “colored marks written on a dead tree”.
2. Memorize as much as you can. 
(memorize it all and be on tv, radio or up “front” )
3. Take a test to see what you “know” )-;
(apart from experience you only “know” memorized colored marks written on a dead tree)
“Pass the test”, and you’re authorized to get others to participate in the three step program created to do service unto the “god” of YOUR choice.
And the “god” chosen most often?
The pagan three-headed catholic/christian “god[s]” )-;
Now if there are those who have “experienced The Messiah and The Power that raised Him from among the dead”, then please bear witness to The Miracles in The Life you have received.
Not someone else’s “Miracles”, your own!
Your experience, your “proof” of being BORN ANEW and “suffering as The Messiah suffered”,  “for tribulation produces Patience, and Patience Experience, and Experience Hope, and Hope does not make one ashamed”!
And not some emotional vocal utterances without meaning which but offer proof that the flesh is still alive, or some lost and found item of personal worth, or the abundance of those things which you possess )-;

For “the abundant Life is of The Spirit and is not realized in that which a man possesses”!

Actually a man’s possessions, possess him )-;
Bear witness to The Miracle of forsaking all that you have, Yes! even your own life also. Not just in word, but indeed and Truth!
As for my experience, i can bear witness to The Miracle of receiving “a love of The Truth” prior to having any “knowledge” that such was bore witness of in what the pagan catholics and christians call their “bible”.
In a time of great turmoil, inward pain, and hopelessness, when the only answer seemed to be suicide, i cried unto the one whom, prior to that moment, i would only recognize as a “supreme being”.

“HELP, if there is a “god”, HELP”!

And in an instant i received a revelation:

Which first revealed the integrity of my natural father whom i believed never lied to me, and that revelation caused me to cry out verbally!

“GOD if you are a god then YOU’RE a “GOD of TRUTH”, for a lie never existed and never will!”
At that moment i committed my being unto this “GOD of Truth”, REALizing that i must abide in Truth, for it was clearly revealed that apart from Truth there is the nothingness that is in, and of the darkness!

For A LIE IS NOT!

And i can bear witness to The Miracle of “Our Father and GOD” leading me to HIS Son, my Brother and Master, The Messiah, He Whom i then sought and desired to follow on The Narrow Way, which IS The Way to The Truth of The Life!
And then The Messiah returned me unto The ONE i once knew only as “GOD”, yet then and now know and have REALized as “Our Father”!
And simply, “The Way” to “The Truth” of “The Life” is REALized when one’s heartfelt desire is that which The Messiah also desired above all else:
“Father, not my will, But THY Will Be Done”!
And once received, “a love of The Truth” will lead one to that which IS, and that which IS, IS OF THE LIGHT!

“Let There Be Light”!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

And The LIGHT reveals all things and IS Forever! And those who experience The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth” begin to REALize that the WHOLE(not just a portion) world and especially it’s religion’s are but the product of The LIE, “imag”ination, deception, delusion,,, all that is unreal and of the darkness!

And those who receive “a love of The Truth” will experience, not just read about, The Truth that “the WHOLE world(not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one”, he who is “d”evil spirit, “the father of lies”, “the angel of light”, “the god of this world”…….
All who truly receive “a love of The Truth”, not just those “colored marks written on a dead tree and bound in fabrication”, will experience The Living Word and will be led into ALL TRUTH!

And TRUTH reveals evermore of how how “poor and needy” we truly are…….

Father Help!       and HE does…….

For Our Father and GOD, HE IS ALIVE, and HE yet communes with HIS children, and HE IS still able to reveal all that is needful unto those who have REALized how truly “poor and needy” we are!

As The Messiah did, so we also REALize “i can do nothing of my own self”……. (John 5:19,30)

Some 12 years after experiencing The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth” i began to search in earnest for what the “catholics and christians” called their “church”, and not just any church, but what i then referred too as “the true church”. In fact at one time “I(id,ego,self.pride)” was going to write a book entitled “In Search of The Church”.

However, experience revealed that the book already was already written and published, and the published Testimonies, in spite of their being biased and perverted, revealed the final chapter in my search.

“Behold The Kingdom of GOD(SPIRIT, FATHER, ALL IN ALL, Elohim) is within you”!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/01/all-biblical-translations-are.html

In my search i was Miraculously delivered from all the “churches” that attempted to ensnare and captivate my soul.
All Thanks and Praise Be Unto “Our Father and GOD”!
And i can bear witness to The Miracle of being delivered from the “I(id,ego,self,pride)” in me…….

Being delivered from wanting “MY” way, and desiring and seeking above all else that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

“Father, not my will, But THY Will Be Done”!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

Father Help!      and HE does…….

And i can bear witness to The Miracles of deliverance from a foul mouth, worldly desires, smoking, greed, womanizing,,,,, and especially from that which is of the “imag”ination…….

Deliverance, YES!

Yet “spiritual warfare” IS, and while breath is ALWAYS WILL BE!

Father Help! and HE does…….
And i can once again bear witness to The Miracle of deliverance from the multiple choice that is the pagan “catholic” and “christian” religion’s!
For each and every one of them is the product of mankind’s “imag”ination, and mankind’s “imag”ination is truly the devil’s playground )-;
So it is that mankind’s “imag”ination is destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures)  and perverting that which is Spirit(Truth, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Grace, Faith,,,, ALL that is Truly GOOD!) )-;
And i can bear witness to The Miracles of healing, from toothaches, amoebic dysentery, pneumonia, and once when i was in great pain for days, and believed i was dying, i heard a Voice from on High clearly speak, “Rise Up and Walk”! And as i rose up from that bed of affliction i was healed!

Instantly!

No doctors, no medication!

Father Help!       and HE does…….
And i can bear witness to the healing of my conscience, which i had neglected, and rejected for so many years.
Only then could i commune with “Our Father(Creator) and GOD”!
The Messiah knew, and i now know, that Our Father(Creator), HE knows what is best for HIS  Creation!
“Our Father(Creator)” knows best indeed and Truth!
And i can bear witness to Miracles of Faith, for as the gun was pointed at my head, and i was asked, “are you afraid now?” i responded, “if GOD allows it, it will be”. Then the trigger was pulled, the bullet fired, and miraculously it missed! And as the one who pulled the trigger turned very pale and ran from the room, i simply stated, “i told you so.”
And today, as i look back? Well i most certainly needed such a Miracle so that i might bear witness unto the Miracle that is The Life today, The Life that is Forever!
And when one has naught but a backpack and the road ahead, it is a time when Faith is Alive and “patience can work her perfect work”. To experience little or no money in one’s pocket is to be “free, free indeed”, free to become like a little child who trusts that their Father will supply all that is truly needed.
And i can bear witness to forsaking all, a time when i had nothing, and only my hands to cover my nakedness! A time when i communed voice to voice with Peter, Paul, and John…….
Yes, i do read “The Testimonies” for they provide food for the soul indeed, and enlighten The Spirit within man as they bear witness unto The Faithful, all of whom had received “a love of The Truth”.
The Testimonies experienced, no longer are but “colored marks written on a dead tree”,
The Testimonies experienced ARE ALIVE!

And REALized!

Yet, because those held captive by the pagan “catholic and christian” religions have not received “a love of The Truth”, The Testimonies have been used and abused in the production of perverse theo’ry’logical doctrinal heresies that bind men in the chains of strong delusion )-;

Doctrines which are then used by world loving religions to ensnare and captivate souls! And the souls they possess but serve “time” in the prison that is this wicked, evil world ;-(

History has proven that multiplied billions have been killed and enslaved(in physical chains and the chains of strong delusion that is religion’s way) in the name of the god(s) of this, or that religion )-;
So it is the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion’s way,
Because life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/04/multiplied-billions-killed-and-enslaved.html

There IS but ONE “Pure Religion and Undefiled”! James 1:27 bears witness of such!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

Simply, ALL other religions are “impure and defiled” and ARE anti-messiah!

However, “The Way of Truth is evil spoken of” because of The LIE that is pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters! (2 Peter 2:1-3)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2007/09/christianity-is-anti-messiah.html

However, in spite of The LIE that is religion, when one receives “a love of The Truth”, all Truth and not just a self determined portion, it is then that The Testimonies allow one to “see” the “building” of their “Faith” as they evermore “experience The Messiah and The Power that raised Him from among the dead”!

And religion, ALL of which is of this world, can not destroy such Faith!
So it is The Faithful will not create a religion, for The Faithful are Family!
The Family of “Our Father and GOD”, “of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named”…….(Eph 3:15)
And NEW “Jerusalem which is above IS !NOW! the mother of us all(sons of Our Father and GOD)!” (Gal 4:26)
So it is that the brethren of The Messiah choose to remain but “aliens and pilgrims while on the earth” for we have REALized that our “citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven”, and that soon, and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last!
Till then:

“The elect cry unto Our Father and GOD day and night” for we have REALized how truly “poor and needy we are”…….

Father Help!       and HE does…….
For Miracles do happen!
So while breath is, HOPE IS! there be would be those who experience The Miracle that is receiving “a love of The Truth” for they will see “The Light” that is The Messiah and take heed unto The Call of The ONE and Only True GOD too:
“Come Out of her(babel/confusion/babylon\world\religion), MY people”!
They will “Come Out” of that which is of this wicked world, and especially it’s religions!
Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(religion) that is of this world, for “the WHOLE(not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one” indeed and Truth…….(1John5:19)
Truth IS, a lie is not…….
Abide in Truth……. francis

Origin of the Name JESUS, WHO is our Messiah?

Reprint from: Yahshua Servant

0623zacharie3

This excellent research was taken from Wikipedia and I would suggest you go there for the complete coverage of this subject concerning the name Jesus and Yeshua. What follows is a small protion of that study with my comments added, not to contradict the study, or the research, but adding to it some reasoning and logic when it comes to accepting false Messiah’s and other names not of our Savior.

Original name for Jesus — 

     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeshua_(name)

The English name Jesus derives from the Late Latin name Iesus, which transliterates the Koine Greek name ‘Inoous Iesoûs.

In the Septuagint and other Greek-language Jewish texts, such as the writings of Josephus and Philo of Alexandria, ‘Inoous Iesoûs is the standard Koine Greek form used to translate both of the Hebrew names: Yehoshua and Yeshua. Greek ‘Inoous or Iesoûs is also used to represent the name of Joshua son of Nun in the New Testament passages Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8. (It was even used in the Septuagint to translate the name Hoshea in one of the three verses where this referred to Joshua the son of Nun—Deut. 32:44.)

Servant’s Comment:  You will notice the English Name Jesus is not derived from the Hebrew, not the ancient Hebrew (Paleo) and not form Modern Hebrew, and not from Aramaic language.  When our Savior was given His Name it was not a Greek name, and not a Latin name.  Our Savior came to His own (Mat 15:24), the house of Israel, it was not He but His Apostles, mainly Paul, that preached the Gospel to the Gentiles.  Our Savior did not even go to the Samaritans (Mat 15:25-28) as He objected to granting a request but later conceded.  From this encounter we can see it would be highly unreasonable to suggest our Savior possessed a Samaritan name, or a Gentile name.  He came as a Jew which the Gospels accounts make plain.  There is also examples of what He would be name in prophetic types found in the Hebrew Scriptures.  The Book of Joshua (old English transliteration of His Name) tell as story of the coming of our Savior to lead His people into the promised land, into the Kingdom of God.  Joshua of the OT a type of Messiah and his name was changed from Hosea to YaHshua (Joshua) pointing to the true deliver to come.  Again we find in the Book of Zechariah a man called YaHshua (Joshua), a priest being crowned as a King.  Read Chapter 3 and you will see this forerunner of our Savior is called the Branch which identifies our Savior.  These two examples are no mistake and we see His Name declaring His purpose and this Name, given Him at birth, was not Greek nor Latin.

During the second Temple period (beginning 538 BC – 70 AD), Yeshua first became a known form of the name Yehoshua. All occurrences of Yeshua in the Hebrew Bible are in I Chron. 24:11, II Chron. 31:15, Ezra, and Nehemiah where it is transliterated into English as Jeshua. Two of these men (Joshua the son of Nun and Joshua the High Priest) are mentioned in other books of the Hebrew Bible where they are instead called Yehoshua [21] (transliterated into English as Joshua).

Servants Comments: Here we see the origin of the corrupted name, Yeshua, replacing the original name YeHoshua.  This name is being pronounced as Yes – shoo – ah but when we find this very name in the Hebrew Dictionary (H3442) we find the pronunciation is presented as YaH-shoo-ua, or YaH-shoo-ah.  This, I believe is were the “transliterated” Name, YaHshua, comes from and as a transliteration is a pretty good pronunciation.  Some do prefer YaHoshua which is also closer to the real Name than Yeshua, as it is pronounced today, and most definitely better than the false Latin Name Iesus, or the English Jesus. If this business of “Transliteration” and “translation” is confusing please go to this link for a detailed explanation — Transliteration.

Contrary to what some seem to think, a “transliteration” does not have to appear as the original, but is to appear in the letters of the other language creating a similar sound to that of the original.  Once this understood the arguments against certain English forms can be ignored.  One thing that cannot be ignored and comes to light is that the names used by Christianity today and by the Jews are not “transliterations”, or are not even the name they claim to be.

YeHoshua and YeHushua are variations of the same name, as is YaHushua, or YaHshua.  The “a” vowel replacing the “e” vowel as a better choice today as the “e” of old used to be in the “long” form which has the sound of the “a” as in the word, Yawn, while the “e” of today is sounded out as in the word “Yes” which is not correct even though many scholars and others claim otherwise, insisting on saying Yes – shoo – ah instead of YaH-shoo-ah.  What makes this so important is in the Yeshua form and in the Greek and Latin, the “H” is dropped from the Holy Name of the God of Israel as well as from the birth Name of our Savior.

The earlier form Yehoshua did not disappear, however, and remained in use as well. In the post-exilic books, Joshua the son of Nun is called both Yeshua bin-Nun (Nehemiah 8:17) and Yehoshua (I Chronicles 7:27). The short form Yeshua was used for Jesus ben Sirach in Hebrew fragments of the Wisdom of Sirach. (Some concern remains over whether these fragments faithfully represent the original Hebrew text or are instead a later translation back into Hebrew.[22]) The earlier form Yehoshua saw revived usage from the Hasmonean period onwards, although the name Yeshua is still found in letters from the time of the Bar Kokhba Revolt (132-135 AD).

In the context of the documentary entitled The Lost Tomb of Jesus, archeologist Amos Kloner stated that the name Yeshua was then a popular form of the name Yehoshua and was “one of the common names in the time of the Second Temple.”[23] In discussing whether it was remarkable to find a tomb with the name of Jesus (the particular ossuary in question bears the inscription “Yehuda bar Yeshua”), he pointed out that the name had been found 71 times in burial caves from that time period.[24]

Thus, both the full form Yehoshua and the abbreviated form Yeshua, were in use during the Gospel period – and in relation to the same person, as in the Hebrew Bible references to Yehoshua/Yeshua son of Nun, and Yehoshua/Yeshua the high priest in the days of Ezra.

Servant comment:  This article points out how the “original” name had never disappeared but was replaced by a “short” form.  The problem with this “short” form is that is sounds nothing like the Original so it fails as a “transliteration”.  At one time it must have satisfied those refusing to use the “full” Name of their God by the dropping of the “H” (the transliterated letter for the original Hebrew).  This was supposed to be pronounced as YeH-shoo-ah, as though the “H” remain but we know today this is form is now pronounced as Yes-shoo-ah. 

Seeing both forms, Yeshua, and YeHoshua used in Scripture should tell us the original, YeHoshua, is not lost and there is really no reason to be using the corrupted for, Yeshua, as the pronunciation has changed and is no longer a proper transliteration.  It finds its support in the fact it appears similar to the bogus name Jesus.  The Christians like this, and the Jews like it too but for different reasons.  The Jews, and I include the Messianic Jews in this, say Yeshua is a short form and is found in the Scriptures — forget the priests and the Scribes messed with it in translation of the Hebrew to the English — transliterating names incorrectly, on purpose.  The Christians are happy to acknowledge the corrupted name, Yeshua, because it looks so similar to the name they preach and teach in — forget the false name Jesus is really from the Greek and Latin.

Servant’s Parting Words:

Something to Think About — YeHoshua, YaHoshua, YeHushua, YaHushua, YaHshua, Yeshua, Iesous, Iesvs, Iesus, Jesus — Now Think, which are the transliterations of the Transliteration?  Of course, with the beginning of the replacement name, Yeshua, we see the change taking place and finally the complete replacement of His Name.

It is my hope this short article will assist you in coming to see clearly through the fog of biased opinion when it comes to uncovering our Savior’s Name, the Name He was given at birth, a Name by which we must all be saved (Acts 4:12; 2:21, Zech 13:9, Ps 79:6, Rom 10:13-14)  When you read those verses remember the names have been changed.  Think of it like this, if there were no other names and these names, we see in the KJV and others, are correct without any alternates then that would be the end of it, but that is not true, there are alternate choices and the topper is — the “alternates” are the originals.  Why settle for what they call a short form for the Original and why accept a form that never existed until around 400 years ago?  If we have the original, or a close transliteration, in todays language and lettering, then why not use the proven original transliterations as opposed to the corrupted or the replacement names? 

Another Coincidence — or — Too Many Coincidences

One final parting shot — type the Latin Name of the false name, IESUS, in your word processor and then do a spell check and see what you come up with.  I think you will find, ISIS as the alternate for this name, unless, of course, this bogus name has been added to your spell checker ealier, which is has in mine as I tired of it continuing to pop up for correcting so I reluctantly added it to my definitions.  In a virgin spell check, however, it will come up as a misspelling and suggest to correct it to ISIS.  Did you know the number for the Egyptian goddess is 666, something to do with snakes and her name the sound of a snake hissing.  This is all speculation and conjecture and offensive to some, I am sure, but still, all of these little coincidences — JESUS sounding like Hey Zues in Latin and Spanish languages, and when you take the vowels out of the name IESUS you have ISS which is pronounced ISIS and now some spell checkers advise changing Iesus to Isis.  How does all of this compare with the original transliterations?  It doesn’t as the English transliterations of the Original connect to and compare favorablly with the Original and actually point back to the God of all Creation, YH WH (YaHweh).  

Failure of the Scholars and Bible Teachers — an Example:

Without going into great detail and quoting mis applications of information by Biblical professional and others thinking they are using top of the line sources, I will give one simple, easy example of what is commonly found in Biblical studies and research. 

   “Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of the Old and New Testament Word”, by W. E. Vine, Merrill F. Unger, and William White, Jr. — a research work of monumental effort and like the Strong’s Concordance and Hebrew/Greek Dictionary is found in most serious bible students library.  We should, however, be aware that we are told as we approach the “end-days”, so called, “knowledge shall be increased”.  With this in mind we should then be ready and willing to correct knowledge from the past. 

   The following is a quote from this outstanding work, concerning the our Savior’s Name, or really the false name:

   Under, JESUS, page 333, “iesous (‘Inoovs, 2424) is a transliteration of the Heb. “Joshua,” meaning “Jehovah is salvations,” i.e., “is Savior” a common name among the jews Ex. 17:9, Luke 3:29 (RV) Col 4:11.  It was given to the Son of God in Incarnation as His personal name, in obedience to the command of an angel to Joseph, the husband of His Mother, Mary, shortly before He was born, Matt 1:21.”

   First:  Iesous is not a transliteration of Joshua, how can it be, it sounds nothing like it.  Remember the purpose of a “transliteration” is to repoduce a word or name from one language to another.  When a name is properly “transliterated’ is will have a like sound a similar or exact pronunciation as that of the original language from which is being transliterated.  Either the scholars of this work have forgotten what a “transliteration” is or they are truly blinded or they are doing this on purpose in an attempt to support the false name “Jesus”. 

   Second: The lagging scholarship is seen in the use of the name, JeHovah, which even the Jehovah’s Witnesses admit, in their extensive work, “Aid to Bible Understanding”, page 884-85, that the name Jeshovah is a latinized form and the YaHWeH is the more correct.  This only demonstrates this is now the accepted knoledge, that YaHWeH is the transliteration of the tetragrammaton YHWH — in other words, that is the way it is pronounce, as we now know.  Correcting Vine’s, “Jehova, is salvation” to YaHWeh is salvation, which is not really correct either as it should be, for His Name, YaH is Salvation, or YaH is Savior and this is seen in the correct transliteration of our Savior’s name, YaHshua. 

   Third:  It is admitted a Name was given Him, presented to Joseph, and to Mary too, and it was a name found commonly among the Jews (Jews like others, liked to name children after heros).  At that time the name JESUS, a Greek/Latin name was not in existence.  Get it?  The false name JESUS, as it is pronounced today did not exist until around 400 years ago.  So, what was the name given to our Savior, over 2 thousand years ago?  We see it in the KJV transliterated in the OT as “Joshua”, being mis pronounced because of the change in the “j” which used to be sounded out similar to the “Y” as in the word “Yawn”.  This Old English transliteration is nothing like the adopted name Jesus, or Iesus, or the Greek, Iesous.  When the angel presented the Holy Name of our Savior, a Name found among men (not in heaven) and a name by which we must all be saved the bogus name, Jesus, never existed but the name YaHshua did.  What Vine’s is saying is that “Jesus” is a transliteration of “YaHshua” and this cannot be and is proven from the fact they sound nothing alike making it a failed transliteration or it is simply a different name. 

I hope this article helps and encourages those called by the one and only YaHshua.  Thank you for your time, your servant, Dan

Yahshua’s Cleansing Reign’s thoughts:  I do not agree with everything stated in this article concerning the lost tribes and the identity of Israel. But I do agree with what they are saying about the name of Jesus. There is no way that name can be the true name of our Savior. I do believe He honors that name because like the identity of Israel we have been deceived and have lost the truth due to people who were ruled by dark forces hiding, misconstruing and removing truth from the translations of Scripture. I also believe that whatever version we TRY to use of His true name, be it Yahshua, Yahushua or Yahusha makes Him happy that we are TRYING to find and follow the truth rather than blindly following what has been taught to us over the years.

 

Proverbs 25:2

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings to search out a matter”.

May Yahuah lead us ALL to His truth, Amen.
