James (Ya'aqob) 2:20-26, Scriptures 2009
James 2:20 But do you wish to know, O foolish man, that the belief without the works is dead?
James 2:21 Was not Aḇraham our father declared right by works when he offered Yitsḥaq his son on the altar?
James 2:22 Do you see that the belief was working with his works, and by the works the belief was perfected?
James 2:23 And the Scripture was filled which says, “Aḇraham believed Elohim, and it was reckoned to him for righteousness.” And he was called, “Elohim’s friend.”
James 2:24 You see, then, that a man is declared right by works, and not by belief alone.
James 2:25 In the same way, was not Raḥaḇ the whore also declared right by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?
James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief is dead without the works.

So is the people 400 years ago who called on Iesus gonna be saved? They called on Zeus in Latin/Greek hybrid name. Jesus is no different its an Latin/English/Greek hybrid. You think the inspired scholars knew that the 'sus' at the end of Jesus means pig or swine? Of course they knew they arent stupid, you just got caught in their game calling the son a pig. The Messiah will not stand for that.
Isaiah 52:6 KJV
6"Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I."
Psalms 9:10 The Scriptures "And those who know Your Name trust in You, For You have not forsaken those who seek You, O יהוה(Yahuwah)."
Psalms 83:16 The Scriptures "Fill their faces with shame, And let them seek Your Name, O יהוה(Yahuwah)"
Psalms 148:13 The Scriptures " Let them praise the Name of יהוה(Yahuwah), For His Name alone is exalted, His splendour is above the earth and heavens. "
Jeremiah 23:26-27 KJV
26How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
27Which 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. "
Matthew 7:21-23, KJV
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Oh there is power in a name and the name is Jesus. Look... God looks on your heart not who or what we are. He knows if I am praising him or calling him names. I trust His infinite wisdom to know the difference. If you trust in Him then don't split hairs.

If its just a word, then call him Yahuwshuwah. But why wont anyone do that, they will call Him anything but the true name. It just proves there is power in the name.
How do you think magicians, sorcerers and witches call up and conjure demons? They have to call on specific names!! Of course the Name matters, would you like if someone changed your named without your permission to someone derogatory? I sure wouldnt.

Then salvation is no longer a gift - you have to earn it. This seems to make Paul a liar for in Ephesians he says it is a Gift from God and is unearned and cannot be earned by any works. Also we have in Romans:
(Rom 3:19) Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it speaketh to them that are under the law; that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may be brought under the judgment of God:
(Rom 3:20) because by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified in his sight; for through the law cometh the knowledge of sin.
(Rom 3:21) But now apart from the law a righteousness of God hath been manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
(Rom 3:22) even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ unto all them that believe; for there is no distinction;
(Rom 3:23) for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;
(Rom 3:24) being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
(Rom 3:25) whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing over of the sins done aforetime, in the forbearance of God;
(Rom 3:26) for the showing, I say, of his righteousness at this present season: that he might himself be just, and the justifier of him that hath faith in Jesus.
(Rom 3:27) Where then is the glorying? It is excluded. By what manner of law? of works? Nay: but by a law of faith.
(Rom 3:28) We reckon therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
A Brilliant Idea.
