Spiritual life starts with a spiritual connection. Our early and spiritual fathers had this. In this blog you will find key information that can lead to the most powerful Spiritual Connection you can ever find. And you don’t have to join any religion to get it. Although it is FREE, its real value is beyond any imaginable price!
In these words, you will find a transliteration of Eyahuwah foras the name is made of four ancient Hebrew vowels (not the modern Hebrew Masoretic consonants). This name was probably sung or intoned in the Temple and would have sounded like “ee-ah-oo-ah”. When the vowels sounds are connected then the transitional consonants sounds “y”, “h” and “w” naturally form and the sound resembles “eeyahhoowah”.
Now regarding the one we call “Jesus.” The name, Jesus, is Greek that came from Latin. It is a Roman name, not Hebrew. Actually, he had more than one name. “His name shall be called Immanuel,” said one Messenger. More on this later …
The reason I use Eyahuwah rather than LORD is to help our minds break free from the iconolatry associated with the more popular Greek and Latin names. Religions have done a good job of programming our minds into thinking what they want us to think when we hear the words God, Lord and Jesus.
“Yahweh”, “Yahveh” and “Jehovah” are very poor pronunciations of. These will not be used either. The use of the English letters YHVH foris based upon the modern Hebrew consonants that evolved from the transitional sounds when saying or singing the ancient Hebrew long vowels that made up the letters of the Name: “ee ah oo ah.” Try it. You will find that “ee ah” forms the sound “yah.” Also you will hear that “ah oo” sounded together becomes “ah-hoo,” and “oo ah” becomes “oowah.”
Although we could use our English transliteration Jesus, which is from the Greek word (pronounced “ee-yay-soos”), I would rather introduce the name Eyahushuah for this reason: there is a very strong spiritual connection between Eyahuwah and Eyahushuah. Reading from right to left, notice the three letters at the beginning of both names. Eyahushuah is the transliteration of the Hebrew name of the one we call Jesus. The corresponding English name is Joshua. If you have read some of the other articles on this blog, you would have found that Jesus’s Hebrew name is very much like the name, Eyahuwah, weakly translated LORD in the “Old” Testament or Hebrew Scriptures.
Eyahuwah is the One with whom our fathers had a very powerful relationship. It was Eyahuwah who covenanted with Abraham using the phrase “I will do it.” He promised to make certain that the promises He made to all of the fathers would be carried out.
Should it be considered strange that there was a Son of the Most High whose name was Eyahushuah? And that in the Domain of Elahim or “Kingdom of God or Heaven,” there was also a Son of Man whose name was revealed to the fathers as Eyahuwah?
The name Eyahushuah means: “Eyahuwah is the One who will save us” or “Eyahuwah our Savior”.
“She gave birth to a Son, and you are to give him the name Eyahushuah, because he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 NIV
“He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God [Eyahuwah Elahim] will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, his kingdom will never end.”
Luke 1:32-33 NIV
Note: throughout the writings, I will refer to the English translation of “Lord God” in both the Old and New Testaments as Eyahuwah Elahim, which is the literal transliteration of the Hebrew and the intended meaning of the Greek, though lost in translation.
The throne of David was established upon this promise made to David, by Eyahuwah through the prophet Nathan:
Eyahuwah declares to you that Eyahuwah himself will establish a house for you. “When your days are over and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his father, and he will by my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with the rod of men, and with floggings inflicted by men. But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.”
2 Samuel 7:11-16. NIV.
This is a double prophecy and a mystery. Not only did it apply to Solomon, but also to Solomon’s offspring. Eyahuwah also promised to punish the reigning son, “when he does wrong”. Although this promise ruled over the lives of David’s sons, this promise was fulfilled by Eyahushuah, David’s offspring, who did no wrong! Instead, he took upon himself the punishment included in this promise! He stood in place of Kings from David’s offspring and took upon himself the punishment promised. As King over the House of Jacob (all of Israel, not just Jews only), Eyahushuah took the punishment upon himself. In doing so, Eyahushuah became the Savior of Israel and of the ruling line of David. Eyahushuah was also a descendant of David and had right to the throne of “his father, David.”
Notice in the quote from 2 Samuel above how many times Eyahuwah is quoted as saying “I will …” and other expressions of action and responsibility.
The question is how could Eyahushuah be qualified to take this punishment on himself?
One of the problems with Bible translations today is the influence of the corrupt Latin Vulgate translation. This translation alone stood the theology of the Scriptures on its head. For example, the word “fides” or “fideles” puts the responsibility of being faithful back on the reader. Whereas, in the language of the Scripture, both Hebrew and Greek, faithfulness is a quality of character possessed by Eyahuwah.
Eyahuwah made the promises and covenants to the fathers (deals, if you will) and He bound Himself to being faithful to perform what He promised. This He did and continues to do whatever is necessary to carry out what He covenanted to do.
It was Eyahuwah who told the people of Israel, “I am Eyahuwah Elahim, who brought you out of Egypt, out the land of slavery. You shall no other Elahim before me.”
This is the foundation of the good news, the gospel. Without the covenants and promises made to the fathers, there is no focal point for human life. Everything would be time and chance. The promises combined with the faithfulness of the Promiser assures the salvation of the human race — starting with the fathers and the people of the nations of Jacob, including David and his offspring.
Why then did Eyahushuah come upon the scene? Who was he and what was his purpose?
Because we have lost our relationship with Elahim and Eyahuwah, we have also lost our own identity and the knowledge of who our fathers were. We have followed other gods that were created by the offspring of Noah’s son Ham: Cush, and Nimrod. Nimrod was the one who placed himself before Eyahuwah. He became the god of the people — and still is to this day.
We have trusted in religions to bring us the “truth” about human life and our purpose here. But instead, they enslaved us and taught about other gods that were not the Eyahuwah Elohim of our fathers. Religions also kept from us our real identity and made us “drink of the wine” of their deceit that put our minds in a drunken stupor.
Eyahuwah warned our fathers that if their offspring turned to the gods of the nations around them, then He would drive them out of the land and take away the knowledge of who they are. Eyahuwah also promised to bring them back from the places to which He had driven them, and give them a new heart.
Eyahuwah spoke to the people and gave them ten commandments with his own voice. That scared the people so much that they begged Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have Elahim speak to us or we will die.”
This became another covenant between Elahim and the people. Elahim through Eyahuwah agreed with the people, and people today wonder why we never hear from Elahim. Yet the target of our existence is the life-generating connection with Elahim as intended from the beginning!
In this conversation and others, the people made their own covenants and promises with Eyahuwah, who honored their requests.
Then Eyahuwah said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this, ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven: Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.”
Because the people of Jacob did go astray. They continued to make their own gods. And as a result, they also created a huge debt of punishment. This is often misunderstood. People ask, “How could God be so cruel?”
Elahim did not bring the trouble into the world. Instead, it came through a decision made by our original father and mother. It was Eve who submitted to the temptation and made the choice to feast on the knowledge of good and evil instead of feasting on the Tree of Life. Then Adam acquiesced and followed her lead. Before their first children reached full maturity, Cain murdered his younger brother Abel.
Rather than looking upon the actions of Elahim as a cruel act, it was really the word of the people and the word of Eyahuwah and was made of contracts, agreements, deals, and promises made by both parties and sealed with an oath. Hence, the future of the world was built upon the covenants made with the fathers and with the people. The world was to be blessed by this relationship. But our fathers, the sons of Jacob, did not keep their part of the agreement.
Another covenant was made with Moses, another father. When Moses was a long time in Mount Sinai receiving instruction from Eyahuwah, the people of Israel made a golden calf and declared that “This was the Elahim that brought you out of Egypt.” This angered Eyahuwah and he told Moses to leave him alone so that he might destroy them and make Moses into a great nation. But Moses pleaded the case with Eyahuwah, saying,
“Turn from your fierce anger; relent and do not bring disaster on your people. Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your own self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give your descendants all this land I promised them, and it will be their inheritance forever.‘”
Eyahuwah relented and did not bring this disaster as he threatened. Moses went back down and tried to get things back in order, however, many lives were lost as a result. He told the people,
“You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to Eyahuwah; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.”
Moses pleaded for forgiveness, and Eyahuwah replied,
“Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of … However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.”
This was not the first time Eyahuwah promised to punish the people of Israel, nor was it the last. This was to become a major theme through the relationship between Eyahuwah Elahim and the descendents of Abraham, Isaac and Israel. They were and still are a stiff-necked and hard-hearted people to this day.
Eyahuwah made promises:
When the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sins.
Exodus 32:33 NIV
Therefore Israel had garnered up a mountain of promised punishment, a great debt, as a result of not keeping the covenants that they made.
When Moses went and told the people all Eyahuwah‘s words and laws, they responded with one voice, “Everything Eyahuwah has said we will do.”
Therefore, the covenant was established based on the words of the people. They promised to continue the relationship that had been established between Eyahuwah Elahim and their fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Israel. And if they failed to do that then Eyahuwah gave his word, “I will punish them for their sins.”
What was promised: it was a choice between life and death …
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love Eyahuwah Elahim, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For Eyahuwah is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (Read the whole chapter).
Eyahuwah knew that the people would go after other gods — non-living gods, and forget the relationship He deeply desired with his people. The decades spent wandering in the wilderness was one struggle after another. Here was a group of people destined to be a Kingdom of Kings and Priests. They were to become a blessing to all the nations of earth. And they were a nation of hard-hearted, stubborn people who were willing to give up the most valuable thing in their life — the relationship held by their fathers with the living Eyahuwah Elahim in exchange for the non-living gods of this world.
In keeping with the requests of the people, the voice of Eyahuwah Elahim became silent. And today we wonder why.
How could this be fixed?
It was the task of Eyahuwah to make events happen just as he had promised and agreed to do, punishment and all. Eyahuwah and Elahim are manifestations of the One true and living One, called in the Scriptures: Elah. It is strange to embrace the reality that Elohim and all of the beings and messengers in that domain are manifestations of Elah. But why is that so difficult. We are manifestations ourselves. Which act of Elah is more difficult?
Here is how John the Apostle wrote about this. This is taken from the Aramaic version of his gospel:
1. In the beginning was the Manifestation; And that Manifestation was with God [Elah]; and the Manifestation was God [Elah].
2. This was in the beginning with God [Elah].
3. Everything was in his power (in his hand), [otherwise] nothing would ever exist. [Actually, all things that exist do so because of his power, and there is nothing else existing outside of his power.]
4. Through him [there] was Life and Life became the Light of humanity
5. And that Light lights the darkness and darkness does not overshadow it.
9. There was the light of the truth, that which lights everyone who is born.
10. He was with the people and the people [came into being] by his hand (i.e. he created them) And the people did not know Him.
11. He came to his own and his own did not receive him.
12. But all those who did receive him, He assigned them to be children of God [Elah], [to them] who believed in his name;
13. They [did not become so] through blood, nor through the desire of the flesh and neither through a man’s willpower; they became born [so] from God [Elah].
14. And the Manifestation became flesh and made his dwelling amongst us and we saw His glory, glory as [that] uniquely [of the nature] of the Creator, Full of grace and blessing.
17. The Law came to us by the hand of Moses. [But] the truth and grace was through Eashoa [Eyahushuah], the Anointed One.
18. No human [being] ever saw God, except for the only born God. He who existed in the bosom of his Father proclaimed Him.
The word “Manifestation” is the meaning of the Aramaic word Miltha used in the place of the Greek word “logos” or “Word”. Miltha means Manifestation and Word. The point being that “Word” or logos contains more meaning that just a simple speech. Instead, it refers to something coming into existence as a result of a preceding declaration or thought. The Word was spoken and the Manifestation of that word is sure to happen. This is central point of all the words, promises, declarations, covenants, agreements and any other word of Eyahuwah Elahim.
This is the foundation of the Good News. As shocking as it may sound the Gospel or Good News is contained in the promises and covenants made to our fathers. It is contained in the Law (Torah) and the Prophets (Nevi’im). It is contained in the words spoken by Eyahuwah, either to the fathers or through the Spirit in the prophets. Therefore, if that is not known or understood by the supposed preachers of the “Gospel”, are they then preaching “another gospel”? And if so, where did they get it?
Throughout the Hebrew scriptures are the promises of hope for the future for the righteous and promises of punishment for the evil doers. Once the word went out, it could not be taken back. If you read the Torah, you will find this repeated time and again. Abraham believed the word spoken by Eyahuwah that he would have a son in his old age, and that his offspring would be as the stars in heaven in number — uncountable. And Abraham believed Eyahuwah. He knew that His word meant something and that what He promised He was also able to perform. Word becomes Manifestation. And in the case of the Aramaic, Word and Manifestation are one and the same.
But what about all that horrible punishment?
Was Eyahuwah only weakly threatening without any intention of actually carrying out His word? If so, then no other word spoken by Him could be relied upon!
Faith has nothing to do with blind belief. “We accept that on faith”, is nonsense. Is the moon really made of cheese? Does the sun circle around the earth? Is the earth really flat? (I don’t know about the cheesy moon thing, but the latter two were doctrines held by the church on “faith” and punishable by death or persecution if not believed.)
If faith is not based upon something tangible, like the Word of Eyahuwah, then it is foolishness. As Eyahushuah said, “Be careful what you believe.”
Abraham believed the Word of Eyahuwah. As a result, that was counted to him as righteousness. The people of Israel, even though they were visibly and forcefully led out of Egypt by Eyahuwah, did not, in fact, believe the words of Eyahuwah. “We’ll do everything he says, but don’t let him speak to us directly”, they cried. Therefore, when they showed that they didn’t believe Eyahuwah and built a calf made of gold, this was counted against them as unrighteousness.
Only Eyahuwah speaks words that must be listened to and believed, because in those words is our life!
What about the punishment? It came in part directly upon the people of Israel. They were divided into two houses. The House of Israel (sometimes called the House of Joseph), and the House of Judah. Both were taken into captivity at different times. One lost its identity and Eyahuwah hid his face from them. The other, House of Judah, retained its identity and continued to suffer through the ages to this very day.
But not all the punishment was meted out. Righteousness, to this day, is still based upon believing the word of Eyahuwah. Here is what he said:
See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised up and lifted up and highly exalted. Just as there were many who were appalled at him — his appearance was so disfigured, beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness — so he will sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand.
Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of Eyahuwah been revealed?
He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He has no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, and nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from who men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by Elohim, smitten by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, and he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and Eyahuwah has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, as a sheep before her shearers is silent, he did not open his mouth.
By oppression and judgment, he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people he was stricken.
He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was Eyahuwah‘s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though Eyahuwah made his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of Eyahuwah will prosper in his hand.
After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 52:13 – 53:12 NIV.
Who was this servant? A man hand-picked by Eyahuwah to receive in his flesh and by his death, the punishment promised by Eyahuwah upon all those who didn’t believe him? That is a little cruel, don’t you think?
Let’s put it this way: it took the courage of an outstanding individual to go through this ordeal.
Who was that man?
It was Eyahuwah himself!
Eyahuwah was the Manifestation of the Word. “A body you have prepared for me.” The “Manifestation became flesh” and dwelt among us! He became Eyahushuah, the Chosen one, who took in his own body the very same punishment that He (Eyahuwah) promised for those who didn’t believe his promises and abide by the covenants he made with our parents. And not only for those, but also for those who would come after to demonstrate both justice and His love for all because He patiently waited for the time when He would pay for these wrong doings and breaches heretofore unpunished. In short, he “bought our markers” and paid our debt and in doing so, He now owns us. Whether we believe it or not!
They shall look upon me whom have they have pierced, and they will mourn for him!
Therefore, because we belong to Him now, He can carry out His promises to save us and bring in the Age of Righteousness. Again, this will happen as promised whether we believe it or not.
This sacrifice did not do away with the law, instead it upheld the law. The word of Eyahuwah was fulfilled in Eyahushuah — the one whose name means “Eyahuwah our Savior.”
The good news was written and recorded down in advance in the books of Hebrew Scriptures. These were committed to the House of Judah for preservation until the time of the end. Eyahushuah told the disciples and the leaders of Judah, who he was. He pointed to the scriptures and told them to read them because they tell about Him. He referred to passages in the Scriptures and said that these were being fulfilled as he read them. Eyahuwah as Eyahushuah once again spoke directly to His people.
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.” Psalm 95:7-8; Hebrews 3:15
[Eyahushuah] said to them, “How foolish you are, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Chosen and Anointed One have to suffer these things and enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself [Eyahuwah our Savior].
Luke 24:25-27 NIV
Eyahushuah, the Anointed One, was Eyahuwah, the Chosen One in the flesh, our Savior, who took upon himself the punishment He promised he would bring upon us for our unbelieving and stubborn hearts. Instead of exacting that from us, he put off the punishment and minimized it, leaving it for the time that he had foreordained when he, himself, would suffer our punishment at the hands of men and die.
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil — and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not the angels [messengers] he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service of Elahim, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
Hebrews 2:14-17 NIV
Now that we know the good news about Eyahuwah our Savior, the Anointed one, we must look ahead to what He has promised for our future. And, most importantly, believe what He has promised for them and for us. He came in the flesh and spoke to us once again, we should listen this time!
