Yahweh: god of the Christians
John David Clark, Sr. - March, 1997
This gentleman had the truth of the demon yahweh pegged back in the 1997 article. Earlier we showed that a internet writers around 2000 pointed out that yahweh is the demon jupiter. Clark takes a very strong stance. His own position is not so easy to unravel, he does not realize that there are faithful "Christians" (this is largely semantics) and that is not our issue today.
Clark gives a clear and simple explanation of how this demon (in Clark's reference, actually Satan) is now honoured and worshipped in segments of what is called Christianity.
Nope. Not mere coincidence. (the question was rhetorical.) We should be thinking people.... Yahweh is accepted as the most likely true name of God in all of liberal Christianity
.... modern scholars were not satisfied with "Jehovah"... The Masoretic vowel pointings, now dismissed by modern scholars as untrustworthy Massoretic contrivance, were replaced with the modern scholars' guesswork.
They felt that they could render a more plausible answer to the problem of the missing vowels. And their vowels gave the tetragrammaton look something like this "JaHVeh". (this is not a clear explanation, the rest is good.)
...Virtually everyone in higher scholastic circles approves of this modern invention, and the name Yahweh is gaining ever greater popularity among all Christians.
... We know that the gods of the ancient world were in fact demons. ... such ancient scholars (as Celsus) understood demons to be harmless, even helpful, spirits. They saw them as "gods" to be honored. Moses's and Paul's view of those gods was quite different, however. They learned from God that demons were evil and not to be trusted.
But to move on, you may remember from school days that the chief of the Gentiles' gods was called Zeus by the Greeks. This same chief of the gods was called Jupiter by the Romans. We who believe the Bible know that the chief of demons is in reality Satan; and so, we know that the Gentiles' chief god (Zeus, or Jupiter) was in fact none other than Satan himself. But this same "supreme god", chief of all demons, had another, and possibly more popular name, the Latin name JOVE. (since jove-pater = jupiter)
Now, consider carefully these facts about Latin grammar: First, just as in Hebrew, Latin has neither the English "J" nor "V" sound. Latin "J" is pronounced as the English "Y", and the Latin "V" is pronounced as an English "W". Secondly, there is no silent "E" in Latin. If a Latin word ends with an "E", it is pronounced as a short "eh" sound. Thirdly, as anyone learns in the first few days of studying the Latin language, a short "O" sound (such as in the Latin word Jove) is difficult to spell out, but is somewhat like "AH". This means that if we pronounce Jove according to the rules of Latin grammar which we are taught, if we pronounce Jove as an ancient Roman would have done, Jove would be pronounced very nearly, if not exactly... Yahweh. Can anyone honestly believe that this is a coincidence?
...can this similarity between Yahweh of modern Christian scholars and Yahweh of the ancient Romans be mere coincidence? No thinking person can believe so...
Nehemia Gordon has done a good job in pointing out that the demon spirit Jupiter really pulled off quick a fast one, a trick, that has entrapped modern (often Christian) dupes. Are you praying to Jupiter? Nehemia asked. And if you are calling on "yahweh", the answer is yes.
This applies overtly to sacred name groups, and groups like Twelve Tribes and one of the most fervent yahwehista groups, Homestead Heritage. Clark points out that the problem is now in many realms of supposed Christianity. You, my dear brethren, need to take a strong stance for the Lord Jesus Christ. And seek to squash any invoking or veneration to the demon.
