we have an emergency need!

Here is a post I placed on another forum.

In response to:

So, ..... in your opinion, what is the correct name and its eventual unfolding?

==========================

Jehovah (or Yehovah as in modern Hebrew) is 100% correct for the Tetragram, and the representation as LORD is excellent.

Here is a scripture verse where it was important to put the actual name.

Psalm 83:18
That men may know that thou,
whose name alone is JEHOVAH,
art the most high over all the earth.


However, I am more concerned with the emergency problem of people calling upon the devil yahweh than whether they agree 100% on the true name.

e.g. Some people think it is Jehowah or Yehowah.
And I believe that is inaccurate, but at worse it would only be a mispronunciation, not the name of a devil.

Plus, our key name is the Lord Jesus Christ.
And we simply use LORD in most cases for the Tetragram.


1 Corinthians 10:21
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:
ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table,
and of the table of devils.


While the immediate context there was communion, the verse applies perfectly to knowingly calling upon the name of a devil.

This can be done to various degrees and in many ways. Like reading in an errant corruption version like the HCSB or NLT or WEB, or even more the text in something like Rotherdam's Emphasized Bible or the rcc Jerusalem Bible. Or pretty much anything from the "Sacred Name" or "Qodesh Name" groups, including the Twelve Tribes. You can have a writer following pseudo-scholarship from the liberals and unbelievers, or the error pushes its way into David Bernard or Jason Dulle (to a limited extent) or others. There can be a short prayer, even one in Jesus name, that just throws in the yahweh thing.

The fact that the writer has some seminary training is irrelevant. Using and embracing yahweh is a spiritual principality, wickedness in high places, wherever it creeps in. The leaven needs to be purged. Often the error is accidental or incidental, but the days of winking at this as ignorance is passing by. We will be able to see the spiritual integrity of our fav leaders and writers and preachers by whether they are willing to consider, and then dump the clump (yahweh.)

In the worst case (and one with which I am familiar) there is actual prayer, travail, song, worship, praise to the yahweh thing and the goal is "Yahweh-worship". This last extreme error is done at Homestead Heritage in Texas (and their affiliates around the country and world) which had a oneness heritage. An additional abomination is when the counterfeit "yahshua" comes into play. (They even brought it in to pollute the formerly apostolic water baptism.)

And I actually see 2017 as a year where this is a primary focus, to help correct any brethren who have been buffeted and gone, to any degree, into yahweh-bondage.


Colossians 3:15-17
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called in one body;
and be ye thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
teaching and admonishing one another in
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

=============================

An extract from another recent discussion:

One gentleman, rather savvy, really was happy that this is getting out to the general public, and encourages that sharing. Since he sees the negative inroads and effects of yahweh throughout many Christian realms (they may not worship and invoke the devil entity fervently like Homestead Heritage, but the effects are pernicious anyway). Thus the dumping of yahweh (along with the occasional compatriot yahshua) has become a fundamental ** emergency message ** to a significant segment of the evangelical church in 2017. The Homestead Heritage stonewalling has actually been turned to good, to help many thousands, as we get the message out:
