Related to the Hebrew Roots Movement, the Sacred Name Movement developed from the Church of God (Seventh Day) in the 1930s. Supposedly, the movement began in response to study of Proverbs 30:4, “What is his name, and what is the name of his son?” The Sacred Name Movement teaches that only “Yahweh” is to be used as the name for God and only “Yahshua” is to be used as the name for Jesus. According to the Sacred Name Movement, the use of any other name is blasphemy.
In addition to a strong emphasis on the use of the original Hebrew names for God and Jesus, the Sacred Name Movement also teaches that followers of Yeshua must obey the Old Testament Law, especially the commands regarding the seventh-day Sabbath, the kosher food laws, and the Jewish festivals.
From the original Sacred Name Movement, several subgroups have formed, including the Assemblies of Yahweh, the Assembly of Yahweh, the House of Yahweh, and Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry.
The Sacred Name Movement errs in many ways. But the primary error is the same as that of the Hebrew Roots Movement. The Sacred Name Movement fails to understand that the Savior did not come to expand Judaism or the Old Covenant. The Savior came to fulfill the Old Covenant and establish the New Covenant. Messiah’s death and resurrection fulfilled the requirements of the Law and freed us from its demands (Romans 10:4; Galatians 3:23-25; Ephesians 2:15). The Old Covenant was but a shadow (Hebrews 8). The New Covenant, established by our Savior/Messiah, is a fulfillment, not a continuation.
The particular focus of the Sacred Name Movement on the names of God and Jesus is unbiblical. The human authors of the Old and New Testaments, writing under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, had no qualms about referring to God as Elohim (Hebrew) and Theos (Greek) or referring to the Son as Iesous (Greek). If it is biblically appropriate to use generic terms to refer to God and to use a Greek version of Jesus’ name, why is it wrong, in English, to refer to the Heavenly Father as “God” and the Messiah as “Jesus”? Why would it be wrong to use the Chinese, Spanish, or Russian pronunciation and spelling of those names and titles?
Further, not even the adherents of the Sacred Name Movement can completely agree on what the sacred names actually are. While “Yahweh” and “Yahshua” are the most common, some propose “Yahvah,” “Yahwah,” “Yohwah,” or” Yahowah” for God and “Yeshua” or “Yahoshua” for Jesus. If there is only one non-blasphemous name each for God and Jesus, we better be sure to get it right. Yet adherents of the Sacred Name Movement cannot even agree on the very core of what their movement is supposed to be all about.
The Sacred Name Movement began with an unbiblical premise and has continued by building unbiblical doctrines on top of that premise. Our salvation is not dependent on our ability to properly pronounce God’s name in Hebrew. Our relationship with God is not based on our obedience to the Old Covenant that our Messiah perfectly fulfilled.
Messiah’s death and resurrection fulfilled the requirements of the Law and freed us from its demands
Romans 10:4; For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
Galatians 3:23-25; But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Ephesians 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
The whole Hebrews 8
Heb 8:1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
Heb 8:2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Heb 8:3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
Heb 8:4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
Heb 8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
Heb 8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Jewish festivals. Stolen from the Zionist
Jesus fulfilled the Jewish Festivals
“How did Jesus fulfill the meanings of the Jewish feasts?”
Answer: The way in which Jesus fulfilled the Jewish feasts is a fascinating study. In the Hebrew Scriptures, the Jewish prophet Amos records that God declared He would do nothing without first revealing it to His servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7). From the Old Covenant to the New, Genesis to Revelation, God provides picture after picture of His entire plan for mankind and one of the most startling prophetic pictures is outlined for us in the Jewish feasts of Leviticus 23.
The Hebrew word for “feasts” (moadim) literally means “appointed times.” God has carefully planned and orchestrated the timing and sequence of each of these seven feasts to reveal to us a special story. The seven annual feasts of Israel were spread over seven months of the Jewish calendar, at set times appointed by God. They are still celebrated by observant Jews today. But for both Jews and non-Jews who have placed their faith in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, these special days demonstrate the work of redemption through God’s Son.
The first four of the seven feasts occur during the springtime (Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks), and they all have already been fulfilled by Christ in the New Testament. The final three holidays (Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles) occur during the fall, all within a short fifteen-day period.
Many Bible scholars and commentators believe that these fall feasts have not yet been fulfilled by Jesus. However, the “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13) for all believers in Jesus Christ is that they most assuredly will be fulfilled. As the four spring feasts were fulfilled literally and right on the actual feast day in connection with Christ’s first coming, these three fall feasts, it is believed by many, will likewise be fulfilled literally in connection to the Lord’s second coming.
In a nutshell, here is the prophetic significance of each of the seven Levitical feasts of Israel:
1) Passover (Leviticus 23:5) – Pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7) whose blood would be shed for our sins. Jesus was crucified during the time that the Passover was observed (Mark 14:12). Christ is a “lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:19) because His life was completely free from sin (Hebrews 4:15). As the first Passover marked the Hebrews’ release from Egyptian slavery, so the death of Christ marks our release from the slavery of sin (Romans 8:2).
2) Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6) – Pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible), making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus’ body was in the grave during the first days of this feast, like a kernel of wheat planted and waiting to burst forth as the bread of life.
3) First Fruits (Leviticus 23:10) – Pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. Jesus was resurrected on this very day, which is one of the reasons that Paul refers to him in 1 Corinthians 15:20 as the “first fruits from the dead.”
4) Weeks or Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16) – Occurred fifty days after the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and pointed to the great harvest of souls and the gift of the Holy Spirit for both Jew and Gentile, who would be brought into the kingdom of God during the Church Age (see Acts 2). The Church was actually established on this day when God poured out His Holy Spirit and 3,000 Jews responded to Peter’s great sermon and his first proclamation of the gospel.
5) Trumpets (Leviticus 23:24) – The first of the fall feasts. Many believe this day points to the Rapture of the Church when the Messiah Jesus will appear in the heavens as He comes for His bride, the Church. The Rapture is always associated in Scripture with the blowing of a loud trumpet (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:52).
6) Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:27) – Many believe this prophetically points to the day of the Second Coming of Jesus when He will return to earth. That will be the Day of Atonement for the Jewish remnant when they “look upon Him whom they have pierced,” repent of their sins, and receive Him as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10 and Romans 11:1-6, 25-36).
7) Tabernacles or Booths (Leviticus 23:34) – Many scholars believe that this feast day points to the Lord’s promise that He will once again “tabernacle” with His people when He returns to reign over all the world (Micah 4:1-7).
Should Christians celebrate these Levitical feast days of Israel today? Whether or not a Christian celebrates the Jewish feast days would be a matter of conscience for the individual Christian. Colossians 2:16-17 tells us, “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” Christians are not bound to observe the Jewish feasts the way an Old Testament Jew was, but we should not criticize another believer who does or does not observe these special days and feasts (Romans 14:5).
While it is not required for Christians to celebrate the Jewish feast days, it is beneficial to study them. Certainly, it could be beneficial to celebrate these days if it leads one to a greater understanding and appreciation for Christ’s death and resurrection and the future promise of His coming. As Christians, if we choose to celebrate these special days, we should put Christ in the center of the celebration, as the One who came to fulfill the prophetic significance of each of them.

Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

His Name is Wonderful!! … Or is it??:
Have you found eternal salvation through the lovely name of our Lord Jesus Christ? Have you found true deliverance from your old sinful past, the world and it’s pleasures, in this most precious name? What about the reality of the peace of God, and the assurance nothing can separate us from the love of God? Have you seen lives changed, miracles wrought, families restored, and others responding towards God, at the preaching of this Name above every other name?
What if someone came along and said this Name you have been saved and set free by is not the correct name at all but a misnomer? What if someone came along and said the wonderful name of your Saviour was a corrupt Greek name, derived from a false god called Zeus? How would you react? What would you response be?
Beware!!! This is exactly what is happening in some spheres of Christendom today, through sources of the Hebrew Roots / Messianic / Sacred Name Movement, as it “validates” itself into the Body of Christ.
Why and how?:
Titus 1:14. Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
Fact: The Old testament was written in Hebrew for the chosen Jewish Nation. The New Testament was written in Greek where the partition between Jew’s and Gentiles was broken down so we could all become one new man in Christ.
Back in the early eighties not long after we left the established church, Don Stanton of Maranatha Revival Crusade was a dear brother in Christ we came to respect and receive much encouragement from, even sharing in our home and supplying much of our literature for witnessing and growth. After being such a blessing to my wife and myself, along with our friends, I became very alarmed when his ministry took a turn towards Judaism when he switched to substituting and teaching Hebraic names for many important biblical names, along with a passion for following Jewish feasts and customs as part of our Christian faith. He even re-wrote the Bible replacing our Saviour’s name with Hebraic equivalents and today is entrenched in something our Lord Jesus came to set us free from.
This following three part article is written in response to this tragedy, along with the many people who have e-mailed me in recent months, trying to persuade myself over to the Hebrew Roots Camp. Generally I have found these people to be varied in their opinions in regards to doctrine; some moderate (scripturally still believing in the Trinity) and others into complete heresy omitting the name Jesus Christ entirely from their faith.
The sincere majority of these people have used the gentle diplomatic approach in their argument to win us across, whereas a few others have been aggressive, and down-right rude and even abusive, when we wouldn’t skip to their tune. On all occasions have I found them very persistent, rabbinic centred, and usually attacking the holy name of our Lord Jesus Christ one way or another.
An in-depth study will prove the teachers who are fanatically entrenched into this movement are deliberately discrediting, tainting, and replacing the precious name of our Saviour, and attempting to lead bible believing Christians out of Christianity.
From another name to occultic leanings:
Part One of this address is a simplified way of exposing their Hebrew Roots Movement and how believers have been seduced away from the New Testament written in Greek (the universal language of the day) and providentially translated into English (the universal language for the closing hours), with the sole purpose of restoring these folk back to the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
This is followed-up by Part Two revealing the authentic root of our faith and dealing with the false roots of the HRM.
Unlike it’s Gentile counterpart the Alexandrian School of Thought, which throws doubt on finding the right source of the Greek, giving it’s Scholars the final authority in interpretation, the H.R. Movement has been successful in discrediting the Greek New Testament and replacing it with the so-called Hebrew / Aramaic “originals”. This places the final authority in regards to interpreting scripture in the hands of it’s rabbinic teachers. Once achieved, then the Holy Name of our Lord Jesus Christ comes under scrutiny.
Part Three by Barb Aho, is more of an in-depth study exposing the sources and occultic connections to this Movement, which is no doubt part of the Great Falling Away delusion in this final hour, even more subtle and dangerous than the false Signs and Wonders Movement, the Word of Faith Movement, and Dominion Theology.
However, we need to make it quite clear from the start this does not mean we lump into one all advocates of the HR Movement as deliberately being into, or promoting the occult. What we are doing is exposing the teaching links to these sources which are deliberately leading believers away from our true root … Christ Jesus our Lord; replacing His name, and depriving others from the only name whereby man can be saved.
Part One … The pure Name
Pure language for a pure name:
During the last hours of these last days (when English would be the universal language of the world) the Lord in His manifold wisdom has chosen this language to represent His Word, to be written as the plain, simple, uncloistered and easily comprehended words of His gospel to the world at all levels of class and culture. God foresaw this language would be the ‘world language’ in the closing hours, presenting His pure, preserved and inerrant autograph with the message … whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Zep. 3:9: “For then will I turn to the people a pure language that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent” (emphasis by author).
Why Elizabethan period English:
The above scripture was prophesying a day after the Dark Ages when the Lord would choose One Book, based on a pure language, so the world’s masses would have access to God’s word proclaiming there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved, where both people (Jew or Gentile) could serve the living God as one.
This revelation was preserved through the transition of the universal language from Greek to English. It occurred when the Authorized Bible was written and made public property, when English as a secular and non-religious language was established in it’s purest form, just before the Great British Empire was established, when English would be set to become the universal language of the world, prior to Jesus’ second coming:
“Secular and non-religious language” Linguistic expert … the Kim Hill Show, Radio N.Z, 11:15 am, 2/2/99:
As many languages are dying in the world (a language is dying somewhere every day), English is disseminating into the international common denominator as the world goes global.
It would be hard for God to use some languages as many are religious, and are not compatible with biblical Christianity. Meaning, “to know a particular language you have to be part of the “household”, speaking the culture”, interwoven with their pagan belief system. This is why it would be necessary for God to set one universal standard in an hour when confusion and apostasy would be prevalent on a worldwide scale:
English as the International Language:
“In this role of global language, English becomes one of the most important professional qualifications.
English is unquestionably recognized as the most important language to be learned in the prevailing international community. This is an unchallenged fact that seems to be irreversible. English has become
the business and scientific worlds’ official language.”
The value of English:
“It is a matter of statistical fact that English is the most important world language. It is the language of modernity, of the twenty-first century – the language of the most advanced technologies, of air traffic, computing, telecommunications, the language of world politics, diplomacy and international finance.
English is spoken on every continent. It has the largest number of foreign students, and the second largest number of native speakers (after Chinese). These numbers will probably continue to increase. Globalisation, the creation of one, interdependent world, will increasingly require a common language.
A good command of English will enable you to communicate with an increasing proportion of the world’s population, and to participate successfully in the new, globalised world.”
Global 2000 Sold out:
“Please note: English is the official language of this conference. For the first time, the major multilateral governmental organizations and multinational business organizations are holding a Summit on the Year 2000 conversion challenge. Several international organizations have taken steps to raise awareness and action on the global implications of the Year 2000 conversion. These organizations believe it is imperative to begin an international forum on the Year 2000 that facilitates the sharing of information, best practices and experiences on a global basis. On October 15 -16, 1998, these leading private and public sector organizations will bring together in London key executives and senior management from national governments, international organizations, industry trade and social service groups, multinational corporations and the media.”
“The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the EU rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty’s Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5 year phase-in plan that would be known as ‘EuroEnglish,'”
The Internet, an English-language network:
English is the lingua franca of the Internet since the network’s very beginning. This factor determined the path of the technicaland language development of the network. Recently the Internet has expanded all over the world and has connected countries with different languages. English plays a very important role in this multinational system: it enables the great number of people of various nationalities and therefore speaking many different national languages to communicate and make themselves understood. This would never be possible to such extent, if the lingua franca of the Internet was any other language. The supremacy of English over other languages, along with the fact that the network originates in a native English-speaking country,makes the position of English on the Internet very firm.
This common denominator language presented us with the Great Book, namely the Holy Bible, and in the Name of Jesus brought freedom to millions, was responsible for the Reformation (although exploited for political gain), and the great missionary thrust of Protestant America and Protestant Great Britain.
Matt. 12:21: “And in his name shall the Gentiles trust” (emphasis by author).
God is not a God of confusion as He makes Himself known by one name through His revealed word, namely the Holy Bible. And as He hast magnified thy word above all thy name … the one who would be audacious enough to replace or change His word would be the one who would be audacious as to replace or change His name. This is presently occurring in Christendom, as the Great Falling Away (from His word) process intensifies, and mankind is conditioned to receive another name … the name of the False Christ of the New Age:
John 5:43: “I [Jesus] am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive” (emphasis by author).
His Name under siege:
Jer. 8:8: “…the pen of the scribes is in vain.”
The most subtle attack of this process is coming through the Hebrew Roots Movement. The New Age goddess, namely Gaia, is too obvious for the fundamental Christian to be deceived. If (for argument sake) the Holy Bible is only a rehash of the originals (as the “hath God said school” declares), and not an inspired translation from the preserved Greek ‘Received Text’ (where the Authorized Bible derived from), then whoever is instigating the notion of “getting back to the Hebrew roots”, and can impart this notion to others, creates a ready- made audience to present the “originals” in his own light, therefore making himself the Higher Critic …
“the Greek is a perversion of the originals…” “better and more reliable manuscripts say…” “better knowledge has come to light…” “according to extra biblical commentary…” “the Hebrew root word for this passage is…” “more truth is now attainable…” And thus and so …
… placing the Higher Critic above your God given English version (thy word is truth), and making him an instrument of “divine revelation” instead of the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truth.
Therefore, more digging is required as things get more complicated, and more credentialed professionals are necessary to unravel the language and cultural barriers, along with the secrets hidden in the past.
It starts off very innocently, as the gospel is presented in it’s true context to be of relevance to the Jewish people (as it is for all people) and win them to Christ; the following verse fitting a sincere motive:
1 Cor. 9:20. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law …
So the Greek title (translated to English) JESUS, translates back to the most common of the Hebrew interpreted titles ‘Yeshua’ and is presented to relate to the Hebrew speaking people. Christ becomes the Messiah they are hoping for as ‘Ha Mashiach’. For this we can rejoice and praise God for, as many Jewish people have found, or are finding Messiah Jesus as Saviour through this revelation, as many other nationalities are finding Him through the Bible being translated into their language.
However, any truth taken to extreme ends in error … as Hebrew in many circles has been promoted as the favoured language above the language of the complete 1611 inspired translation, and given supreme importance as justified through the Old Testament (as well as the New in their case) being originally written in Hebrew, and the Jewish people being the original chosen people of God. Therefore, everything Jewish is being seen as being of God, and importance is placed on the Torah (the Jewish book of laws), along with the Talmud (the oral law), on a par with the New Testament, as Gentile believers find themselves fallen prey to this type of reasoning as the Galatians were at the beginning of the New Testament era ignoring the warning of their Savour Jesus:
Mark 7:13. Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition (putting the Talmud on an equal basis), which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
Paul (a Jewish believer from the strictive of the Jewish sects) made it clear … you can’t have one and the other, as the new has cancelled out the old:
Heb. 8:13. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Gal. 1:6-7. I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
Paul clarified it was the Jewish religion he was saved from, that was responsible for this falling away in his day, and was warning the Gentile Galatian Believers not to be entangled with it:
Gal. 1: 13-14 . For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
Read Acts 15: 5-24 and you will see the church made a distinction between the old and the new with this final conclusion:
Acts 15:24. Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
Although advocates today of the HRM are not making circumcision a major requirement as in the first century, other aspects of the Old Covenant along with Jewish traditions are being imposed on bible believers to embrace as being part of God restoring the true faith in these end times. A major shift in embraced theology has been the acceptance of the Jewish name replacement for Jesus Christ.
Mal. 1:11. For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense [prayer/worship] shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering [spirit and in truth]: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts.
Whose name do we call out to when we want to be saved? In whose name are we sent? In whose name do we pray, preach, teach, and exercise divine authority?
Is it … Jeshua, Yeshua, Yeshuah, Yehshua, Yehshuah, YESHUA, YESHUAH, YEHSHUA, YEHSHUAH, Yeshouah, Y’shua, Y’shuah, Jeshu, Yeshu, Yehoshua, Yehoshuah, YHVHShua, YHVHShuah, Yhvhshua, Yhwhshua, YHWHShua, YHWHShuah, Yhvhshuah, Yhwhshuah, Yahvehshua, Yahwehshua, Yahvehshuah, Yahwehshuah, Jahshua, Jahshuah, Jashua, Jashuah, Jahoshua, Jahoshuah, Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Yashua, Yashuah, Yahshua, Yahshuah, YAHSHUA, YAHSHUAH, YASHUA, YASHUAH, Yahushua, Yahushuah, Yahoshua, Yahoshuah, Yaohushua, YAOHUSHUA, Yaohushuah, Iahoshua, Iahoshuah, Iahushua, or Iahushuah??
Matt. 28: 18-19. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost …
What name have believers been commanded to teach and baptize in? … The same Person whom all power in heaven and earth was given to … a Jewish man named JESUS! In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is the name of Jesus which is Christ, God’s anointed one who came in the flesh.
Proof? … Then go to the Book of Acts (where the words of Jesus were being demonstrated by the apostles and early church) and you will see every baptism of the true Way was done in the name of Jesus, as was all the preaching, teaching, deliverances, healings and miracles.
Deut. 28:10. And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
Still not convinced!? … Then tell me why the name presented and exalted in the Authorized 1611 English bible is the most attacked name in society? Why is it the most degraded and spat upon name around the world, uttered as a malignant byword by millions, over and over again, every single day? Why don’t you hear the name of another god being continually down graded? Why is not the name Yahweh being cursed, consciously or unconsciously, by the worlds masses?
Because Jesus’ name is the most precious name in heaven and earth, and should be treasured above all names, as the only name behind the Person who rendered Satan powerless and broke the chains of sin and death. It is the only name where life and death hang in the balances between whether we deny Him or confess Him. It is the only name where freedom or bondage is in the power of praising His Name or cursing it.
Matt. 1:21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
Therefore, the Name Jesus (derived from Joshua – Jehovah saves) as Christ (the Anointed One), the English name taken from the Greek (as the New Testament was written in Greek, the universal language of its day) is the hallowed name of God coming in the flesh. The same Name exalted as the Name above every other name; as the only name whereby man can be saved; as the true and relevant name today … that whosoever shall call upon the name, shall find salvation and favour with his Maker.
His name is JESUS!
The Cult’s pagan connection:
Jer. 23:27: “Which 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.”
If God’s word has been lost (or forgotten) then it can be justified that His Name has been lost (or forgotten) also. And it would take so-called knowledgeable men who could put us right, so the notion goes.
However, because God has given us His Book, with every scripture given by Divine inspiration, we only need to go to His Book to find the Name which is above every other name, the only name by which men can be saved. The cult of Yah have got it wrong because it’s roots are not Jewish at all in the scriptural sense, but pagan, and behind the scenes it’s Masonic mystics have infiltrated Christendom (as it did with Jewish teachings through the Cabbala) leading people into spiritual captivity.
Following is an excerpt from “Christianity, Masonry not compatible. Definitions of God pose fundamental difference.” [03/13/93, The Press-Enterprise Riverside, CA] (emphasis mine):
Regarding the identity of God, in Scottish Rite Masonry, the 13th degree is that of the Royal Arch. In it, the alleged true, previously hidden name of God is revealed as Jabulum. “The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry,” page 359, affirms this, under the entry for Jabulum, yet does not give the meaning. But in the same book on page 102, in the definition of Bel, the meaning is given. It says, “Bel is the contracted form of . . . Baal, and was worshipped by the Babylonians as their chief deity . . . It has, with Jah and Oh, been introduced into the Royal Arch system as a representative of the” name of God. Jah represents the name Jehovah, Bel represents Baal, and Oh represents Osiris.
Jude 1:4. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through this Masonic / Cabbala infiltration Jehovah becomes Yahweh. Jesus becomes Yashua. Hence, God is now G-d being referred to as Yah or Jah which broadens the name and isolates God from Jesus Christ who came in the flesh. This suits the mystics, the secret societies, the covens, along with the ecumenicals (who like rallying names) and trendy new agers; making Christianity both contemporary and acceptable.
This Yah/Jah thing has become a trendy word through the 80’s and 90’s from the “Star Wars” craze, to the Rastifarrians, to off-beat Christian sects. One of these pseudo Christian HRM website (accents mine) states:
We believe that:
Yahweh is God and the only real one,
Yahshua is His son and that
Yahshua is our Saviour and salvation, so there is no oneness or trinity.
The real names are Yahweh and Yahshua.
There is no so called “Church” or one group, but it is a organism in the hearts of people.
We observe the weekly Sabbath from sunset till sunset and also the
Spring and Fall feast, not the “Worldly” feasts.
A new year starts with the first visible new moon, on or after the spring equinox.
By obeying any law we will not be “saved”, but we have to obey the laws.
We do not eat unclean food and
believe in the works of the Holy Spirit.
The mark of the beast is the sunday, not a barcode on the forehead or a subcutaneous
But mainly we try to love and help each other and like to do that to people, what we also like
Please don’t forget: wisdom is from Yahweh, misunderstanding from men!
Let’s look at some proof in regards to “Yah’s” roots:
Baal was the false sun-god the Jews stumbled over. Baal, which means lord and substitutes the/our Lord, and transposes to many other names (depending on the language and the nation it represents) such as Horus, Tammuz, Eros, Jupiter, Zeus, Maitreya, and so on.
Masons commonly refer to their deity as the “Great Architect of the Universe” (G.A.O.T.U.) or the Supreme Being. God is further described as Grand Artificer, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge Above, Jehovah, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, or Great Geometer. (The “G” in the Masonic ring can refer to God; it can also refer to geometry.) Masons claim that the actual name for God has been lost. [HJB] (emphasis mine)
Isaiah 43:10: “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”
God’s inspired word the AV/KJB presents JEHOVAH as the all great I AM, the stand alone God who saith I AM THAT I AM. In His Book there is no room for any other god/deity where the New testament presents JESUS only as the great I AM:
John 18:6: “As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.”
Confirming and declaring Jesus’ invested power and authority as God in the flesh:
2 John 1:7: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
The Apostle John (a Jewish believer) warned those who deny Jesus is the only Christ and that He came once and for all in the flesh have embraced the spirit of antichrist. Every true Bible believer, in the strictest Masonic view, is therefore hated and despised as a divisive sectarianist. He who believes Jesus alone is classed a bigot and extremist. Other lukewarm believers who are not adamant in this view will largely escape persecution.
Jim Shaw, a former 33 Mason, says that Masonry is not based on the Bible (referred to as “The Great Light”), but on the Kabala (Cabala), a medieval book of mysticism and magic. Masonic authority Henry Wilson Coil also admits that the Kabala’s teachings can be seen in some of the mystical and philosophical degrees of Masonry. Albert Pike, the man responsible for virtually rewriting the Scottish Rite degrees into their present form, said that the Masonic “search after light” leads directly back to the Kabala, the ultimate source of Masonic beliefs (Morals and Dogma ). [HJB]
The Cabbala (scrambled as Cabala, Kabala, Kabbala, Kaballa, Qabbala, Qabala, Qaballa, etc. where God’s name is also scrambled) is Jewish mysticism. The Oxford dictionary refers to it as Jewish oral tradition; occult lore.
Just as these mystery schools of Jewish occultism have infiltrated Judaism so have these secret societies infiltrated western fraternities, softening them up for the new pseudo “sacred” name.
Part Three will reveal the links between these mystery schools, Jewish oral tradition, and the Hebrew Roots / Sacred Name Movement. However, this does not mean we are accusing all advocates of the HRM as cabbalists or occultists. Our intention is exposing both the sources of the Root teachings and the promotion of the “sacred” Yah/Jah name cult.
The complex Hebraic source promotes / purveys the name of God as Yah (Jah/Jehovah) which fits the hidden Masonic god, whereas the Aramaic source purveys God as El Shaddai (woman’s breast / life nourisher) fitting the New Age mixed gender god. It is important that all this is made known to those whose profess to name the Name of Christ, so the true name is honoured, and Christians are aware of the subtleties of being lured back under the law, or digressing even further into occultic deception.
Which God do we serve:
Is it … YHVH, YHWH, Yahweh, Yah, Yahveh, Yaveh, Yaweh, Jehova, Jehovah, Jahova, Jahovah, Yahova, Yahovah, Jahowa, Jahowah, Yahavah, Jahavah, Yahowe, Yahoweh, Jahaveh, Jahaweh, Jah, Yahaveh, Yahaweh, Jahuweh, Yahuweh, Iahueh, Jahuwah, Yahuwah, Yah, Jah, Yahu, Jahu, Yahvah, Jahvah, Jahve, Jahveh, Yahve, Yahwe???
An open-ended scrambled deity based on esoterical interpretation?
Or the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of Israel, David and the prophets. The God of Paul, Peter, James and the church of God. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1 John 5:20: “… that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”
Ps. 11:3: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
A basic way to discern a cult is to test “what or who” is the foundation to their faith. The Roman Catholic institution claim Peter as their first pope as they believe he is the rock their faith and church is built upon. Just the same way the HRM claim Israel and it’s diverse teachings is their foundation.
The Jewish King David said:
Ps. 18:2. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God …
Ps .18:31. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
David, a man after God’s own heart, saw the Lord of heaven and earth as his source and foundation, not the nation he served, nor it’s traditions or ordinances.
The New Testament presents Christ as LORD and our foundation rock to build upon. Not the teaching of the church, or the clergy, neither Israel or its rabbinic teachers:
1 Cor. 3:11. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
The HRM (whether unbeknown to individuals) puts Israel above God and its teachings above the Holy Spirit, therefore New Testament revelation is obscured from them …
2 Cor. 3:14. But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
When a Jewish person turns to Jesus as Messiah and Lord does the scales fall off his / her spiritual eyes, as it did when Paul met Jesus during his time as a zealous Jewish Rabbi persecuting the church of God. Then Christ is no longer a rock of offence (a stumblingblock) but a rock of defence, as the foundation of God standeth sure.
1 Co 1:23-24. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Christ is our rock, our foundation…to build our life and faith on.
The Old Testament was written in Hebrew for the Hebrew people, the chosen people of God, to declare His wonders to the world. The New Testament was written in Greek bringing the Kingdom of God to the whole Greek speaking Gentile world, as well as the Jews, that we might all become one people under God.
The partition has been taken down dividing the Hebraic Old Testament and the Hellenistic New Testament: Meaning … the whole bible (both the old and new) has been translated into English for the English speaking world (both Jew and Gentile) at the threshold of Jesus’ return, and as a base been re-translated into other ethnic tongues for non-English speaking people.
In the Old Testament the Lord’s name was JEHOVAH (as presented in today’s written word), the God of the Jews. In the New Testament the Lord’s name is JESUS … God coming in the flesh for both the Jew and the Gentile, that we might all become one people under God.
“And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth” (Ex 9:16; emphasis by author).
Part Two … Which Root
“There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust” (Rom. 15:12).
Getting to the root of the Roots:
From the mass reaction of e-mails in regards to our HRM exposure updates, it is obvious we have touched on something important. Also, because of the many people who have misunderstood or misconstrued us in regards to these articles, I feel it is important we clear up a few points, hence … Part Two.
Yes, we believe in the Triune Godhead expressed through three Persons of the trinity, of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In that order. Each Person being individual of the other yet the same Person … hence, the mystery of the Godhead. The Holy Spirit making Jesus real to the believer, with Jesus in turn pointing us to our Father in Heaven.
One of the characteristics of a cult is the denial of the Trinity (which the core of the HRM does), along with the denial of the divinity of JESUS (which the HRM does), which is Christ, who came in the flesh.
The ‘Jesus Only’ Cult:
Yes, this cult does exist but is nothing to do with us. We don’t legalistically teach or endorse that unless “the name of Jesus” is specifically mentioned when you pray, or do a good deed, then it is not of God. The Lord’s Name can be interchanged with other biblical titles of His Name such as Emmanuel, Wonderful, Son of God, Lamb of God, Prince of Peace, and so forth! But should be used both scripturally and intelligently, and not glibly, faddishly, or as mere gimmickry.
Can God use other languages?:
Yes!! The Authorized Version has been the largest version of the Bible that has been translated into hundreds of other tongues and dialects over the great missionary period of England and America, bringing the Gospel to multitudes across the four corners of the earth.
Have other bibles carried the word of God other than the King James Version?:
“Both Tyndale and Wycliffe translated the bible into English before King James’s day from the Received Text (the Textus Receptus, God’s preserved New Testament in Greek), before they were both burnt at the stake by the Church for supplying the word of God to the common folk in the street. When James of Scotland became the first king of the new Great Britain, being a God fearing man (contrary of what we have been taught), and like myself, encouraging relationship and accountability to God only, produced the first public bible for the man in the street, the Authorized Bible (also based on God’s preserved Received Text). This books title was “The Holy Bible”. It was only renamed the King James Version about one hundred years ago to make it look just like another translation which were beginning to appear on the religious market.
Other bibles that were translated from the Received Text prior to the KJ were: Beza’s 1604, Bishops 1568, Geneva 1560, Stephen’s 1550, The Great Bible 1539, Matthew’s 1537, Coverdale 1535, Luther’s 1534 (not the corrupt Lutheran Bible of today), Tyndale’s 1525 (as already mentioned), Erasmus 1522, and Wycliffe’s 1382 (as already mentioned).”
Copied from “The Infallible Book.”
Writing off members of the HRM or Scared Name Movement?:
No way!! We all err from time to time or make mistakes. Like us all, much of what I have done in my life has been in ignorance so why not make allowances for others. Just because someone writes G-d for God, or uses Yahweh doesn’t mean to say we cut them off. We are exposing the false doctrine (therefore having to name names at times) not attacking personalities.
Replacement Theology is the teaching which states “because the nation of Israel rejected Jesus, God has rejected Israel and is therefore finished with Israel (written it off), and all His purposes have now switched and are focused on the Church (the bride of Christ) which has replaced Israel”.
We certainly don’t go along with this teaching which takes Hosea 4:6 to extreme without the balance of other scriptures:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Although God does reject those who reject Him (as He accepts those who accept Him and honours those who honour Him), this still does not rule out God granting another chance and showing mercy on those who are willing to humble themselves before Him with repentant hearts.
Scripture shows the Lord will have mercy on the nation of Israel again, when they turn from their wicked ways and call out to Him, as Israel will be the nation where (Messiah) Jesus will rule from during the true Millennium on earth.
Christians follow Jesus not Israel:
2 Chr. 17:3- 5. But sought to the LORD God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.
Discerning the right Root:
Rom. 11:16-18: “For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.”
One of the main reasons for the HRM to have had so much sway in Christendom has been due to the misconception of Romans chapter eleven. This has been because of a misinterpretation of the olive tree in relation to Abraham’s seed, along with a wrong interpretation of the tree’s roots.
Abraham is our father according to the faith not the flesh. He is our father according to the promise not circumcision, tithing, sabbath keeping, or any other law observance. The olive tree we are grafted into is not natural Israel of the flesh (the present political / geographical regime) but the spiritual tree.
The Jewish people have been cut off for rejecting their Messiah, and the Gentile believers have been grafted in. However, this is not an excuse for Gentle believers to be cocky as Jews are being grafted in again as they too find Jesus as Messiah. This way we can all enjoy the benefits and nourishment of the tree together, as one new man.
Now for the crunch!! … The root of the tree is not Jewishness at all, but Jesus:
Rev. 5:5. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda (of the Jews), the Root of David (the line going back to Abraham), hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev. 22:16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
The false teachings of the HRM say we need to get back to the Jewish root/s to literally understand the N.T. scripture. Not so …
…if the root be holy, so are the branches.
The root/s can’t be Jewishness because the root/s are holy and no one is holy save Christ. If we (Jew or Gentile ) be connected to Him (Jesus) then we become holy branches enjoying the benefits of the promise. If interpretation of scripture relies on Jewishness and not God’s Holy Spirit, this would put the Jewish teachers in a place of monopolizing scripture, placing them on the same hierarchical plane as the Orthodox Clergy and Roman Catholic Institution who place the Church, not individual revelation, in charge of interpretation.
As the late Keith Green (a Jewish Brother in Jesus) said in his song:
“We are de branches and He is de vine!”
Private interpretation or individual revelation:
Scripture speaks for itself … it teaches against claiming private interpretation (no group monopolizing the truth):
2 Peter 1:20-21. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Therefore, no one group, race, organization, or fraternity, can claim authority or the position of being a guide, or interpreter. The New Covenant presents the priesthood of all believers under Jesus our High Priest. It presents revelation to the individual direct from the Throne Room of God:
Rom. 16:25-26. Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
Revelation from the risen glorified Christ in Heaven, to our hearts by the Holy Spirit:
Gal. 1:12. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
The fact that God choose the Jewish nation had nothing to do with them being a superior or better people, but because it was part of God’s over all plan. Therefore, the Jewish people were a privileged people. They spoke Hebrew therefore the O.T. books (God’s word) where written in Hebrew. The N.T. (God’s word) obviously wasn’t written in Hebrew because this would give the Jewish people claim over the new faith, lording it over the Gentiles as the Jewish Concision did with the Galatians. The N.T. was written in the common language of the day Koine Greek, breaking down the partition which divided the two peoples (Jews and Gentile) giving them both equal status as heavenly citizens in the new Commonwealth of Israel.
Just as the Lord choose a Gentile (universal) language for His word at the opening of the church age will He choose a Gentile (universal) language at the closing of the church age. This of course would be English (and as I’m not English, I’m not being biased). This is nothing to do with race superiority but to do with God being a sovereign God Who calls the shots. He could not choose the present form of English as a base because it has lost its purity (virtue) of moral absolutes, unlike when it was at it’s purest in 1611. Again, this was nothing to do with English being a superior or perfect language, but because God foreseen it would be the secular (non-religious) language that would transcend cultural and political barriers in this age of Globalism, bringing his word as a light to all the nations.
The end result:
Granted, there are different degrees in being ensnared by the Hebraic Roots / Sacred Name Movement, just as there is with any spiritual deception. The HRM at it’s best (if we can use this scenario) is luring believers back under the law, whereas at it’s worse, is occultism sneaked in through Cabbalistic teaching, as revealed in Part One and more thoroughly in Part Three.
However, in order to deal with this ‘falling away’ we first need to go beyond nipping it in the bud, before it takes root, and deal with the false root:
Luke 3:9. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
We need to deal with it now (as with all deception) by ruthlessly dealing with every root that is not Christ so there would be only one root left … which root is Christ. The result: Christ being the right tree in our lives bearing the right fruit at the end of the age.
Going back under the law with it’s obsolete observances doesn’t produce fruit, but brings about striving in the flesh, sowing seeds of discord among the Body of Christ, with division and confusion. It also produces a complex belief system (religion) with a complicated false (dual) gospel.
Heb 9: 9-12. Which was a figure (the Old Covenant) for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
Eph. 2:15. Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain (Jew and Gentile) one new man, so making peace …
Col. .2:14. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us (the law was our teacher pointing us to Christ), which was contrary to us (to our nature), and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross …
The Old is dead! It is a white elephant! … Nor can it be resurrected, reformed, taken out of moth balls, or stitched up:
Mark 2:21. No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.
Why point importance on the old … our past, our culture, our traditions, when there is so much at stake? A Jewish apostle called Paul saw his Jewish past as loss for Christ … as dung, that I may win Christ.
When the Old Covenant was brought to an end, it was completely and absolutely once and for all replaced by the New. The New wasn’t simply a purification of the Old one. Nor was it a rehash. When scripture says new, it means brand spanking new. Being in Christ means we have a new heart, a new start, a new life, a new hope, as … all things become new. Even the geography becomes new … a new house, a new sanctuary, a new city, a new country. This world (with its various races, nations, beliefs, politics and cultures) is not our home … we’re only passing through! Why put importance on the present! Jesus, our root, our rock, is coming back very soon …
… for those who are rooted and grounded in Him!!

Part Three … A Hebraic Roots Expose
In Part Three we will be taking a more in-depth look into the sources behind the teaching of the HRM by a report compiled by Barb Aho.
The following is a write-up I have done which proves that the sources used by the Hebrew Roots Movement
(Talmud, Mishnah, Midrash, etc.) evolved into and purvey the same occult teachings as the Kabbalah/Zohar.
The Appendix to this report, provided by Vicky Dillen, adds further documentation showing that these sources
are in total opposition to Scripture. These are facts of which every follower of the Hebrew Roots view of
Christianity should be apprised, but all seem to be totally unaware.
I am so glad you are addressing this subject and will be glad to share any information I have in the future. Let
us pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal to disciples of the H.R. ministries the truths of Christian liberty
expressed in the book of Galatians and lead them out of this movement, which otherwise will eventually deliver them into the dreadful bondage of the Noahide Laws and the global Kabbalist/Freemasonic New World Order.
THE HEBRAIC ROOTS MOVEMENT
Peter Michas’ essay “Is The New Testament Hebrew/Aramaic or Greek?” maintains that the original Gospels were written in Hebrew and/or Aramaic, translated into Greek and are therefore not reliable, especially having passed through successive translations to the English New Testament used by English speaking Christians
today. The solution to this problem, according to Michas, is to turn to the O.T. and Jewish traditions to
determine the truth of the New Testament. Peter Michas advocates reliance upon the Jewish Mishnah,
Haggadah, Halakah, Talmud and Midrash, along with the Torah (first five books of the Old
Testament), as better commentaries on New Testament doctrine than the Greek and English New Testaments themselves, which he claims are inferior translations of the presumed Hebrew/Aramaic originals:
