Hello, my name is Dirk
You just saw the verse from John 5:43 which says:
“I have come in My Father’s Name and you do not receive Me, if another comes in his own name, him you would receive.
I have been talking about the names of YHWH and Yahushua for a while stressing the importance of knowing their names. Now I am going to talk about why you would accept the name of Jesus and not the name of Yahushua. I am going to take the opportunity to show you the transition in history of the name of Yahushua from the Hebrew language to the Greek language to the Latin language and finally to the English language.

Did you see the name changing over time? Does Jesus look like Yahushua? Not even close! I want to step back one language from the English language and move back to the Latin language where the name of Jesus is Iesus. That name lasted for a long time throughout history. Then it was changed to Jesus. The letter J showed up not long ago. I am going to show you a copy of a page from the bible, specifically the King James Version bible, which was first printed in 1611. The page is from Luke Chapter 4. Pay close attention to the yellow highlights of Jesus which is spelled Iesus.

The word Iesus in the book which was published in 1611 in the first English bible that was make it possible for many people to read. Iesus? You can read on the internet about the history of the letter J. There is plenty of information to be found.
Our English language has 26 letters in the alphabet, the baby of the letters in the alphabet is the letter J. The letter J was born from the letter I. In the year 1634, there was the first time in print, a distinction between the letter I and the letter J. For many years up to that time, there was no distinction between both letters in print. Thus the name Iesus became Jesus. We already see the name being changed 4 times becoming another name. Another person?
Slide asking question of which names fits with John 5:43
If I tell you that the name Yahushua was not used as a reference to one person in the bible and that there is another in the bible? This person was mentioned frequently in the bible and even has his own book. We know of Yahushua, not the mistaken name of Jesus. There is another Yahushua in the bible, in the Tankh or Old Testament, more specifically in the first 5 books of the bible. Before I continue with this discussion, I am going to show you a slide. If you do not believe me, feel free to look this up yourself.
Slide showing Name in Hebrew Yahushua and Names in English Jesus and Joshua
You just saw the same names in Hebrew but different translated names in English of Jesus and Joshua. You know who Joshua is? The famed assistant to Moses and when Moses died, Joshua took over ruling the whole House of Israel. The surprising thing here is that the name is the same in Hebrew, Yahushua. I am going to show you a verse where Yahushua, which you know as Joshua, had his name changed from Hoshea to Yahushua.
These are the names of the men whom Mosheh sent to spy out the land. And Mosheh called Hoshĕa the son of Nun, Yahushua.
Hoshea had his name changed to Yahushua. In today’s world, we should not be using Jesus but rather Joshua and saying “Praise Joshua” all those years. Why are we saying Jesus? Already we see the name changed to a different person. We must be very careful and know what is written even going further to find out where it was written, the history of what was written, rather than reading what is written and listening to what is being said by other people and taking their word for it and believing it to be true.
We must take what is written and discern it deeper and find the truth that may be hidden from us.
Jesus is not his name, Joshua is not his name. Yahushua is His Name!
Who decided the name? His Father!
Who decided that His Name would be above every name? His Father!
If our Father made His Name very important, we must do the same and show every reverence to that Name. Not changing His Name into something less and changing it again into a different name and eventually to Jesus which has no connection to the Father. I am going to show you verses from Philippians stressing the importance of His Name.
(9) Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name,
(10) that at the Name of Yahushua every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
(11) and every tongue should confess that Yahushua Messiah is Master, to the esteem of Elohim the Father.
Philippians Chapter two verses nine through eleven can be summed up by saying that His Name is above all, we will bow to that name, and confess that He is the Master giving our Father esteem.
Yahushua is our Messiah which means Anointed One (hence the way I sign it this way), Anointed One means taking oil and pour it over someone’s head and it flows freely down the head indicating that he is chosen.
Yahushua was chosen to be our savior and He is our Messiah. The Father picked Him (Yahushua) with a name that is very important. We must heed this, hold the name to heart. We must know the name in order to bow down and confess that He is our Messiah.
I do not know who Jesus is. The name has no meaning to me. It does not give Our Father esteem. It takes away The Father’s name. It takes away any relationship between the Father and the Son.
I propose we go back to calling the Son by his true name, Yahushua. We proclaim that He is our Messiah so we can give Our Father, YHWH, His esteem.
