We Worship What We Know for Salvation Is from the Jews
Does all of this have anything to do with our salvation?
Jesus said to the Samaritan woman, “You worship what you do not know, we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews” (John 4:22).
Today, both Trinitarian Christians and Israelites mistakenly believe that God was named at the burning bush.
The Jews, the tribe of Judah, knew that the Messenger of God, the Angel who “appeared” to Moses was named “He WILL BE” at the burning bush. God said to Moses, “Gather the elders together and tell them, He WILL BE, the ELOHIM of your fathers . . . has appeared to me” (Exodus 3:16). The Messenger was Israel’s ELOHIM, of whom God said, “I will save them by He WILL BE their ELOHIM” (Hosea 1:7).
Excluded from the list of the saved tribes of Israel in Revelation 7 is the tribe of Dan. Why? Because they set up an image to worship in Judges 18:30. Likewise, Trinitarians also set up an image to worship, which John called, “the image of the beast.” Because of the confusion of this doctrine, they are unable to see the Name of God recorded in the Bible.
In the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John compared the “true Jews,” the 144,000, with the Nations, or Gentiles.
A True Jew Is One Who Rejects Idolatry
The word “Jew” comes from the name Yahuda, meaning “praise Yah.”
A Jew is one who worships Yah and rejects idolatry. This was explained in the Book of Esther and the Talmud. The first person to be called a Jew was a Benjamite named Mordecai: “There was a certain Jew whose name was Mordecai . . . a Benjamite” (Esther 2:5).
Here, the Talmud (Tractate Megillah 12b) asks:
“He is called a Yehudi, implying that he descended from Judah; he then is called Yemini, implying that he is a Benjaminite!” Rabbi Jochanan responds: “He was a Benjaminite. Yet he was called a Yehudi because he rejected idolatry—and anyone who rejects idolatry is called a Yehudi.”
The Prophecy of a New Covenant
In Hosea 1:9, God said, “I will no longer be your I WILL BE.”
Because of their unfaithfulness, the Israelites could no longer see that God was with them. In fact, it is was not God who turned away from the Israelites, but rather, the Israelites turned away from Him.
But in Hosea 2:18, God promised He would make a New Covenant with the Gentiles, whom He called the beasts of the field, and the birds of the air, and the creeping things of the ground, as described in Acts 10:12.
Like the Israelites, an Idolatrous Church Forgot the Name of God
In Hosea 3:1, God told Hosea to “go again.”
Go again and love a woman who is loved by a lover, and is committing adultery, just like the love of the LORD for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans.
God prophesied that those in the New Covenant would follow the same ways as Israel.
Christian Gnostics rather unbelievably mixed Roman theology and Christianity to call Christ, Ιαβεζεβυθ, Jupiter of the Hosts (of Planets), making Christ the Supreme God of the Roman Empire, as Jupiter.
Because of the idolatry of the early Christians and the errors of the Trinity doctrine, many Christians today are confused about the Name of God.
Why Did God Allow Men to Forget His Name Again?
The Apostle Paul gave us two answers to this question.
Because They Did Not Receive the Love of the Truth
Because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they may be saved, for this reason God will send them a strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they may all be condemned who did not believe in the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.2 Thessalonians 2:10–12
God allows men to be deceived when they do not receive the love of the truth.
Had the Gentiles not created the Trinity doctrine, they would have easily understood that the “Name of the Word of the Lord” was “He WILL BE.”
But because God’s Name is holy, He did not want it used by those who are unholy.
Let All That Name the Name of the LORD Depart from Unrighteousness
Paul said those who use the Name of the LORD must depart from unrighteousness.
In the Greek Septuagint, the Jews translated Leviticus 24:16 as, “He that names the Name of the Lord (ὀνομάζων δὲ τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου), let him die the death.”
The same expression, “names the Name of the Lord,” (ὀνομάζων τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου) was used by Paul in 2 Timothy 2:19, where he writes, “Let him depart from iniquity, everyone who names the Name of the Lord.”
God wants those who “name His Name” to be holy.
A true Jew must reject all idolatry.
Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan,Revelation 3:9
who say they are Jews and are not, but lie
I will make them come and bow down at your feet.
