How Important Is A Name To YHWH?
Ezekiel 18:23 “Have I any pleasure in the death of the wrong?”, declares the Master YHWH.
“Is it not that he should turn from his ways (repent), and live?”
If you put yourself in the position of YHWH that clearly states that He loves life and would prefer everyone to repent, would you hide the “way to repent” in metaphors, shadow pictures and try to trick everyone out of salvation? Even though “salvation” is NOT what everyone thought it to be, YHWH never even mentioned the supposedly most important person of all time “Jesus” whom everyone desperately needs?
Strangely we find, contrary to Christian philosophy and speculation, that names were extremely important right through the Old Testament and Jesus would have been mentioned BY NAME from very early in Scripture to make sure that nobody can point a finger and say “we have never been told about him”!
Let’s look at these verses:
Genesis 12:2 And I will make of you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great; and you will be a blessing.

Psalms 91:14 “Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name.
The list of verses that point to the importance of a name is much longer than what I am showing here.
It is with 100% certainty that we can derive from these verses that if Jesus / Yahshua / Christ or whatever other name you may have for the supposed “son of God” were real, the name would have been all over for everyone to see. It would have been the most obvious, straight forward, factual and plainly visible story in the Bible. What do we find however? Only speculation, shadow pictures, highly controversial “dual” prophecies, conjecture and misinterpretations with lots of flaws an discrepancies to try and prove the validity and deity of Jesus.
Everyone is allowed to believe what ever they want, but that does not make anything true. You can believe in Jesus just because so many other people do, but that does not make it true either. Just like the whole Germany fell for Hitler’s indoctrination and they all followed suit, did not make Hitler’s philosophy true. Thus truth can NEVER be measured against numbers. It is measured against visible, tangible, hard evidence as we can find in the discovery of the Exodus route from Egypt to Midian with all the matching artifacts and place names that prove the Tanakh. Just another reason why NAMES are so important.
I hope that this shed some light on the dark subject of the Importance of a NAME.
May you be blessed in your walk in search for the Truth!
