What is in a name? Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Names are important, we each have one or more and it is part of who we are. In ancient times, names were even more important. Our Heavenly Father has a name too. His name is not God, the word god is a title, not a name. There is much debate about how to pronounce the name of our Heavenly Father. This article is NOT about this topic. Instead, we will look at what it means to bring honor to our Father’s name as opposed to how His name can be profaned.
In the previous post, we have seen how poor scholarship can lead to deceptions and misconceptions. In this post, we shall look at the name of YHVH and Y’shua. The purpose is not to create contention, on the contrary; it is to bring peace. We want to show you, firstly, that we are living in a time of restoration, and that we are to embrace that. However, secondly, that we are in this to be loving and patient toward one another for we do not have all truth revealed to us yet.
