Are we allowed to swear in the Name of YHVH?

Posted by on Dec 8, 2022 in The Name of YHVH

Are we allowed to swear in the Name of YHVH? According to the Sermon on the Mount, we are not allowed to swear at all, while the Torah allows us. Is there any contradiction between the Torah and the Messiah? It is true, of course, as we are all aware, that if anyone who claims to be the Messiah has changed, annulled even one law of the Torah and taught the others to do so, he cannot be the Messiah. Yet, the Torah and the Sermon on the Mount appear to express two...

Despite the Dishonor of His Name

Posted by on Dec 3, 2016 in The Name of YHVH

What does it take to dishonor the Name of YHVH? Do we dishonor the Creator’s Name by uttering it, as many in the Rabbinic Judaism are led to believe, or there is something else? When Yitzhak became old, he called Esav his elder son and said to him to hunt wild game for him and make him a tasty dish in order that he would bless him before he dies. Rivkah overheard Yitzhak and conspired to change her husband’s blessing. Her plan was her favorite son Ya’akov...

Honor the Name of YHVH! Do not use it in vain!

Posted by on Sep 14, 2016 in The Name of YHVH

The Name of the Creator we are to honor. But what does “Do not to take the Name of YHVH in vain” mean?

Would God Not Search This Out?

Posted by on Jul 18, 2016 in The Name of YHVH

(Psa 44:20-21) The context for a better understanding of the verses above is that we have been scattered among the nations (v.11) but our hearts have not been turned back, neither have our steps declined from His path (v. 18),...

The Name of Yehovah is Above All

Posted by on Jul 4, 2016 in Hebrew Study, The Name of YHVH

The Name of the Creator Yehovah is the name above all names. The letters of the Set-apart Name Yehovah have an atonement power, as we will see in this article. And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and engrave upon it, like the engravings of a signet: HOLY TO THE LORD. Exo 28:36 וְעָשִׂיתָ and you will make צִּיץ blossom  זָהָב of gold טָהֹור pure וּפִתַּחְתָּ and (engrave) open עָלָיו on פִּתּוּחֵי engravings) openings) חֹתָ֔ם seal of קֹדֶשׁ set-apart לַֽיהוָֽה to...

Posted by on Jul 4, 2016 in Q&A, The Name of YHVH

And I appeared to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Ya’akov, as El Shaddai. And by My Name יהוה was I not known to them?
