The Bible versions that I use do not have "YHWH" in them.


I believe in most Bible translations, YHWH is referenced as LORD in all capital letters in the English translations.





"LORD" is translated from "Adonai", not "YHWH".


Comprehension fail

She said that YHWH is referenced as LORD, not translated. We know what Adonai means.

I wonder if any of those religions you name to speak of the same three spirits. More finger pointing, eh?


Do you deny that those three spirits have already been the cause of wars in the past?


Yes.



Although after giving this some thought I suppose this is possible. The idea that people in leadership of major world powers not baptized and operating under the intelligence of the Holy Spirit pitch nations against each other and form the basis and idealogy for going to war.

Because I think that many of our wars are in opposition to Divine Will. I have contemplated what the "Abomination of Desolation" is in the Book of Revelations and I suspect that it might very well be war.

War is a terrible and destructive force which destroys lives.

Now read that last paragraph again. The term "Adonai" is a reference for YHWH (Yahweh)!!!


As I already said In a previous post, there is no credible proof of that. There are no credible scrolls that show us that YHWH was replaced with Adonai. All there is is the word of the "Jews". Jesus preached against them. They even crucified Christ. Their word is not credible.

Sorry, the Egyptian language isn't the same as the Hebrew language.


You do know the Hebrews spoke Egyptian during their captivity there, don't you?

It is well known that Jehovah only dates back to 1270AD. Strong's is wrong on the name Jehovah, especially since it is shown that Jehovah means God of ruin and destruction in Hebrew.


Well known by who? The author of some strange book you're reading?

Once again, you have no sources. Not that it matters because the ones you have supplied have all failed anyway.


By anyone who has researched it. The first recorded use of Jehovah was by the Catholic monk, Raymundus Martini in 1270AD.

Even the Jehovah's witnesses, who defend Jehovah so much, admit it.


By combining the vowel signs of 'Adho.nay and 'Elo.him' with the four consonants of the Tetragrammaton the pronunciations Yeho.wah' and Yehowih' were formed. The first of these provided the basis for the Latinized form "Jehova(h)." The first recorded use of this form dates from the thirteenth century C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book Pugeo Fidei of the year 1270. Hebrew scholars generally favor "Yahweh" as the most likely pronunciation.

Exodus 6:3
And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.

Psalm 83:18
That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

Isaiah 12:2
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

Isaiah 26:4
4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:


Jehovah /dʒɨˈhoʊvə/ is a Latinization of the Hebrew יְהֹוָה, a vocalization of the Tetragrammaton יהוה (YHWH), the proper name of the God of Israel in the Hebrew Bible, which has also been transcribed as "Yehowah" or "Yahweh".[1][2]


Any way you look at it, it still originates from the Tetragrammaton.

The Tetragrammaton is something you obviously have failed to research and study.

The practice of substituting YHWH for “LORD” was begun by the Jews hundreds of years before Christ. The Jews did not want to pronounce or mispronounce the name of YHWH out of reverence, and also lest they violated the commandment that says, "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain," (Exodus 20:7).

So, the Jews began substituting God's name (in Hebrew, "Lord") which is now Adonai. This practice is followed today in English translations of the Bible to show reverence for the Holy Name. Finally, since the early Hebrew text did not contain vowels but only consonants, it is not known exactly how to pronounce God's name. So, LORD is substituted for YHWH.

The Egyptian language was not the one used to write their Bible in which the Tetragrammaton is used.

A good summary of the history of the problem is in an NOT article “Translating the Tetragrammaton
YHWH” (1997) by Katy Barnwell, an excerpt of which follows (from p. 24):

In many English translations of the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament) the form “LORD,” written in small
capitals, is used to represent the four Hebrew letters YHWH. This is a proper name, the personal name of
God, not a title or a general noun.

How did the term LORD come to be used to represent the personal name of God? It seems clear that, until
about the time of the prophet Ezra, the Israelites pronounced the name of God (YHWH) freely. But
sometime after the time of Ezra, they came to feel that the name YHWH was so holy that it should not be
pronounced. So, whenever YHWH was written in the text, they read it aloud as 'adonay which means
“(my) lord/master.”

Much later, Masoretic scribes added vowels to the text to preserve the pronunciation of the words.
(Originally Hebrew was written with consonant symbols only.) But when the scribes added vowels to the
word YHWH, they added the vowels of 'adonay (“lord”) to remind people to pronounce the title as
'adonay instead of saying the personal name, Yahweh.

The KJV was translated in 1611. Hundreds of years after the first recorded use of Jehovah. In order to prove that the KJV's use of Jehovah is correct and not based upon personal opinion, you must examine the source(s) from which it was translated from. In those source(s) the word is either Adonai or EhJeh, not Jehovah.

Note that in the NKJV, Jehovah is not there, it is instead, LORD.

Every Bible scholar agrees that YHWH is the Old Testament God.

You're the only one who refuses to see it.

In essence, all you've done is contradict yourself and claim that Jesus is Ba'al, since Jesus is YHWH.

If you deny one, you just denied the other, just like the Israelites did.

John 8:24

24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

. . . Jesus says he is the Old Testament God . . .

None of those verses that you quoted says that.
Jesus quotes the OT in order to refute the arguments made against him by the Pharisees and others, including the devil.
The "Law and the Prophets" tells about a better world to come where God rules, and he is there to fulfill those promises. That is what he meant when he said that he was not there to "destroy" those.
The expectation of the Jews was for a divine entity to appear at the right hand of God with the Prophet going before him, ushering in this promised new age. This is why Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well that "salvation is of the Jews" because they had this prophetic expectation which Jesus could capitalise on, to help bring about the new worldwide religion for the age.
