“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

God’s name (an edited earlier post)

“But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by My name, to defile it. And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into My mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” (Jer. 32:34,35).
Which think to cause My people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal.” (Jer. 23:27).
“And GodH430 said unto Moses, I AMH1961 THATH834 I AM:H1961 and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, AMH1961 hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORDH3068 GodH430 of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” (Ex. 3:14,15).
H430 ʹēlôhîym Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: - angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.
H1961, hâyâh (pronounced, haw-yawʹ), a primitive root (compare H1933, hâvâh, to be, breathe); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
H834 ʹāsher, a primitive relative pronoun  (of every gender and number); who, which, what, that; also (as adverb and conjunction) when, where, how, because, in order that, etc.: - X after, X alike, as (soon as), because, X every, for, + forasmuch, + from whence, + how (-soever), X if, (so) that ([thing] which, wherein), X though, + until, + whatsoever, when where (+ -as, -in, -of, -on, -soever, -with), which, whilst, + whither (- soever), who (-m, -soever, -se). As it is indeclinable, it is often accompanied by the personal pronoun expletively, used to show the connection.
H3068 yehôvâh, from H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal: Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, yâhh, contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: -  Jah, the Lord, most vehement; H3069, yehôvih.
Today, the Jewish people call God by the name of Yahweh. This comes from the name YHWH, the Tetra-grammaton. The Tetra-grammaton came into being because, in their effort to keep God’s name holy, the Jews after their dispersion from Jerusalem, thought they should never speak His name. They followed the Greek philosophy that flesh must forever be unworthy of Spirit; and since God, or in the Greek mind, the gods, are spirit then humans must forever prostrate themselves in His presence. Thus, the Jews believed that His holy name was so holy that flesh should never let it pass from their unholy lips. So, to implement this, they only wrote His name; and in Hebrew language, only consonants are written.
One thing they knew for sure, He wasn’t happy with them. If they couldn’t be protected from the pagan empires, despite all of their stringent religious efforts, then He must be unhappy with them. So, they sought to appease Him, just like the pagans did to their unaccepting, loveless gods. Thus, the Jews restricted the use of Jehovah’s name. This was purely a pagan exercise. It certainly wasn’t the practice of their forebears when the nation was obedient to Him and was reaping His grace.
Their ancient fathers never took that route, no matter how lowly a person was in the nation.
“And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORDH3068 [Yehôvâh] be with you. And they answered him, The LORDH3068 [Yehôvâh] bless thee.” (Ruth 2:4).
From high to lowly, if their heart was perfect toward Him, they didn’t have to be fanatically religious to use His name. So long as they didn’t use His name in vain, they could use it during their secular duties.
“And when all the [Baal worshiping] people saw [Elijah’s sacrifice and the fire that fell from heaven], they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD,H3068 [Yehôvâh] he is the God; the LORD,H3068 [Yehôvâh] He is the God.” (1Ki. 18:39).
Even after being subjugated because of apostasy, they still felt free to call on Him. And God was happy to hear them call on His name. But, Satan can’t allow any re-consecrating of hearts back to the God of love. Satan loves to take the beautiful liberties of the gospel and hurl them to the extremes.
Jehovah is not like the gods, especially the wantabe almighty god, Baal. Though Jehovah is high, yet He bows low to lift up His children; no matter who they are. “Though the LORD [Yehôvâh] be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly: but the proud He knoweth afar off.” (Ps. 138:6).
So, back to the beginning text, “I AMH1961 THATH834 I AMH1961”. This is His name. It’s close to Yahweh, Hâyâh. So, then why do we not call Him that. Hâyâh. Maybe this Hâyâh is more accurate than Yahweh. Maybe Yahweh isn’t God’s real name. Maybe Jehovah
I say that because of an earlier post that looked at the comparison of Yahweh, which we pronounce, “´Yähwā” and the supreme Roman god, Jupiter. In the Latin, he was Jove, which they pronounced with a soft j―“y”, a short o―“ȯ”, a soft v―“w”, and a long a―“ā”. Together, “Yȯwā”, is identical to “´Yähwā”.
In that post, I hadn’t looked at the Hebrew for I AM, and I concluded that the Romans had been righteously influenced by the “holy” Jews. Now I wonder. After all the nationalism and corrupt grabbing for political power during the dark centuries that had no earnest voice of a prophet, there was nothing holy about the Jewish nation when the Greeks and Romans rose to world dominance.
This name, Yȯwā (Yahweh), comes from very deep in antiquity. India used it for their supreme god. Could it be that ´Yähwā (Yahweh, not YHWH) is pagan? Could Yahweh be borrowed by the Jews during the dark, inter-testamental period when there was no prophet for them sent from God. During that time, they had departed so far from His will that He went silent on them.
His promise to them upon leaving Babylonian captivity was a glorious one.
“Behold, the days come, saith [Yehôvâh], that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith [Yehôvâh]: but this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith [Yehôvâh], I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God [ʹĒlôhîym], and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know [Yehôvâh]: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith [Yehôvâh]: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jer. 31:31-34).
Did they want this? Did they strive for it? Didn’t Jehovah hand it to them on a silver platter through Ezra’s and Nehemiah’s revival? But, what did they do with God’s blessing and His revival? They threw it away. Nehemiah was recalled to his royal duties, but he returned 12 years later, and this is what he saw.
“But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:
And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God.
And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber.
Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers: and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense.
And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field.
Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place.
Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.
And I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah: for they were counted faithful, and their office was to distribute unto their brethren.
Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.
In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.
There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.
Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day?
Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.
And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.
So the merchants and sellers of all kind of ware lodged without Jerusalem once or twice.
Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath.
And I commanded the Levites that they should cleanse themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the sabbath day. Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of thy mercy.
In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab:
And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews’ language, but according to the language of each people.
And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves.
Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.
Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?
And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me.
Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.
Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business;
And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.” (Neh. 13:6-31).
That was about the time Malachi prophesied, and that prophecy had very few positive things to say about the Jews. So, the last efforts of Nehemiah to keep Israel pure and holy were wasted. After Malachi not another word came to them from heaven. They had chosen their delusions, and the dead silence from heaven was a blaring rejection from above. Some theologians believe that the writer of Malachi was Nehemiah, since Malachi means “messenger”, and warning of a coming “messenger” was the theme of the book. That means that the book’s title didn’t refer to the writer, but to the theme. Nehemiah was the writer, and he didn’t hold much credence in the people after what he saw them do with the great revival his God had accomplished through his efforts to reestablish the nation, and Ezra’s work to reestablish the temple and holy religion.
Jehovah had forewarned of this and the Babylonian captivity surely fulfilled Moses’ prophecy that they would be poisoned by the pagan world which they loved more than the Creator.
“[Yehôvâh] shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.” (Deut. 28:36). But, the pagan influence didn’t appear so simple and crude as it had in Moses’ day; rather, it came in a sophisticated religious/philosophical look. The dark mysteries, with which Satan had piqued the interest of the world’s elite, now had replaced the needs of the human heart and the things of the Spirit of God.
Without the Spirit of God to keep them from pagan influences, nothing could stop the influx of heathen practices and religious styles. During this time the uninspired words of the paganized rabbis were accumulated into the Mishnah and used in place of the inspired Hebrew scripture. The name of God could easily have been imported from Rome and Egypt at that time, which were the source of the Mystery of whoredom and abominations to the world. The hunger to copy the world has always had a strong tug on the people professing the one true God.
I believe this is when Hâyâh (pronounced “haw-yaw’”) became Yahweh, (“´Yähwā”, Jove, or Jupiter). It wasn’t a difficult transition between names, especially if they had begun to fanatically love the ancient name from ancient India. And that is how Satan desires to be worshipped, because fanaticism has no conviction of the heart and therefore results in no repentance from a broken heart. Satan’s work never breaks up the fallow ground nor circumcises the foreskin of the heart; it only sows among thorns.
“[Yehôvâh] shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: and thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.” (Deut. 28:28, 29).
The new addition overtook the ancient Hebrew religion which had descended from Noah and was pure emotion, as we see of the Jews’ new propitiation to Yahweh.
“Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of [Yehôvâh] which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.
 [Yehôvâh] will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto [Yehôvâh] of hosts.
And this have ye done again, covering the altar of [Yehôvâh] with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.” (Mal. 2:11-13).
Similarly to the Jews, did the post-apostolic church later replace Jupiter and Mars and Venus, and the other planets, with Peter and Paul and Mary, and the other New Testament personalities. It was no different than their changing Jehovah’s Sabbath from the seventh day of creation to worship on the invincible day of the Sun, or the biblical Godhead of Father and Son, and Their united holy Spirit power, to the pagan trinity of three co-eternal, co-equal persons. All this happy influx of pagan religion ended up in the Church’s total possession by Satan through his Gnosticism, and secretive Cabbala hierarchy and its violent mafia.
Hâvâh, “to be” or “to breathe”, better describes the Self-existent One and Creator, who spoke into being the lesser creation “and it was”, and who breathed into His highest creation, “and man became a living soul”.
“But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
Sing unto God, sing praises to His name: extol Him that rideth upon the heavens by His name JAH, and rejoice before Him.” (Ps. 68:3,4).
Jah yâhh, pronounced “yaw”
Contracted for H3068 [Yehôvâh, pronounced Yeh-ho-vaw’], and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: -Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Cp. Names in “-iah,” “-jah”.
“I AMH1961 THAT I AMH1961”.
H1961, hâyâh (pronounced, haw-yaw’), a primitive root (compare H1933, hâvâh or hâvâ’, [pronounced haw-vaw’] to be, breathe); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
H1961 is how the “y” pronunciation comes to “Jah” and “Jehovah”. The “yâhh” is the emphatic syllable of “hâyâh” and is to be very pronounced in the voice, more than the typical “accented” part of other languages. “Yâhh” duplicates the Creator’s breathing creation into existence.
Joining the two original words of Yâhh with hâvâh (the primitive root of I AM, hâyâh), and putting their pronunciations together we get Yâhh-hâvâh, Yâhhâvâh (Yaw-haw-vaw’), Jehôvâh, or Yehôvâh (Yeh-ho-vaw’). We do not get Yahweh (Yähwā), which is Jove (Yȯwā). Jâh and Hâvâh joined together more closely resembles Jehovah, and not even as many Christians today want to call His name, “Yahua”, pronounced, “Yaw-hoo-aw”. Biblically, His name is pronounced, Yeh-ho-vaw’, the Self-existent Life-giver, the eternal Breather of life.
Therefore, I choose to continue with Jehovah, and disregard the new versions of Jehovah. I especially disdain the word, Yahweh, who is Jupiter, which was the Romanized Canaanite Ba ‘al and Babylonian Bel, the deified Nimrod, who was possessed by the devil himself. Therefore, Yahweh is Satan.
The name of Jehovah was utterly essential to serving the one true God, and not Satan. That is why He was so emphatic about His name being served, served correctly as He outlined in statutes and judments, not spoken disrespectfully or vainly, and not serving the name of any other other god. Another name was associated with someone else who was worshiped. And all other gods were from Satan.
