Overusing the Word G-O-D

by John Greene

good and godIt would seem that everyone is competing to use the word ‘God’ to describe the ‘god’ they believe is most important to them. I’ve heard Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Christians and others do this. Jews profess belief in the Torah. Christians profess belief in the Bible. Yet, in the original language of scripture, God is never used as a name or description for the the Almighty, even as so many profess to fear misusing His Name. God is not, nor has ever been His Name. Yet, some even fear spelling ‘God’, preferring to spell ‘G-d’, as if this title has anything to do with Him. If this weren’t so sad, it would laughable. (John 17:15-18; Romans 12:1-2; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; “Heavenly Father Has a Name“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “The Foundation of Salvation“)

YHWH original hebrewIn fact, the most common titles for the Almighty in scripture are Elohim, El, or Eloah. His Name is Yahweh, Yah, originally represented by YHWH in the original texts. In the majority of existing Greek documents, He is called theos or kurios, which are generalized titles given to their gods and men of reknown. The earliest fragments of the earliest Greek translations show His Name, which also indicates moving away from using the Name of YHWH. In Aramaic, He is called Alaha, which uses the same root as Elohim. Others will try to tell you that none of this matters, that all gods are the same and that all paths lead to god. Once again, this is not what scripture indicates, even though this Source is often disregarded and disputed for the desire to create and explain the sources of our historical past. Let’s face the facts, we live in a world of historical revisionism, even a pack of lies. Yet, having said this, it’s safe to say that few people – scholars or otherwise agree on very much. The world is full of false concepts and false religious ideas that have been adopted as truth in order to further power, control, even good feelings. (Hebrews 6:1-12; Psalm 34:10; “Origins of the Word God”; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)

pope vatican world govtBy refusing to identify Elohim by His true Title or His Name, Christians have set themselves up for ruination through a world of confusion and collusion that works to reel everyone into a worldly occult. Those that don’t know the truth will fall into the trap devised by the world, easily fooled into believing anyone that claims to speak in “God’s name,” whether His Name is used or not. Virtually everyone seems to use the title “god” as a name. God this and God that. Lord this and Lord that. Call Him King, when He is Sovereign of the universe. In our vanity, we lower Father, Son and Spirit to the mere titles of men, or lords and kings of the past, as if this is somehow fitting. We consider all these titles as powerful and righteous, when they are political words of the past. This is not what the Almighty wants – to be compared with idols of men and women, or to be made less than Who He is. Christians – that is, disciples of the Most High Messiah owe Him honesty and love, not titles of vanity and imagination. (1 Peter 2:9; Romans 15:17-22; Colossians 3:1, 10; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Isaiah 55:8-9; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “Leadership & the Universal Authority of Messiah“; “Grace, His Protective Love & You“)

earthly lordConsider that next time you want to address Him personally in prayer or in public. Show your love for Him as He has done for you. The world needs to know the truth, not simply rehashing false religion from the past. It’s truth that you and others need to know. It could even save your life, one way or the other. (1 John 4:7-12; Galatians 5:16; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Romans 6:6; “Deception of Ages: How People Are Deceived“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“; “Gods in Their Own Minds“)

“The presence of the lawless has been according to the effective operation of Satan through all power and signs, even lying wonders and from all deceit, unrighteousness with the perishing; because they did not receive the love of the truth or salvation. And for this reason, Elohim sends them the effective operation of error. They believe the lie so that all are judged that do not believe truth, but pleased through unrighteousness. Now we should give thanks at all times to Elohim, who made the Way around for you – brothers loved by the Master, because Elohim from the beginning took you into salvation through the Set Apart Ruach and trust in truth; towards which He called you through our good news, towards possessing the praise of Master Yahshua Messiah. Then accordingly brothers, persevere and hold the precepts which you were taught, whether by the Torah and the prophets or whether through our message.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:9-15, Project for Truth

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
