THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER
We would like to bring to your attention, dear readers, a matter written by the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 23, Verses 26-27: "Until when will there be in the heart of those prophesying false prophecies and prophets of the deception of their hearts: Who scheme to make my people forget my name with their dreams that a man tells to his fellow, as their fathers forgot my name for Ba'al". From here we learn that a great sin was committed by those Prophets of Deception who caused the People of Israel to "forget" the name of their Creator! Do you, the reader of these words now, know the name of your Creator and King? His name is not "Adonai" as you have been taught to think. His name is YHWH, and this fact is most vital and must be known by all, as will be shown below.
The sages of the Talmud forbade us to pronounce the name of our God and even said that he who pronounces His name will not have a portion in the world to come.
Apparently these sages were more "religious" then Moses our teacher who wrote "Fear YHWH your God; Him you shall fear and to Him shall you cling and in His name will you make oaths" (Deuteronomy Chapter 10 Verse 20). This raises the question, how can we make an oath in His name if it is forbidden to pronounce it.
Apparently these sages were wiser than Solomon son of David who said: "And if your people Israel is smitten before an enemy, because they have sinned against you, and they will repent and praise your name and they will pray and supplicate before you in this house: And you will hear from heavens and forgive the sin of Israel and you will return them to the land that you have given to them and their fathers: When the heaven are stopped and there is no rain, because they have sinned against you, and they will pray to this place and praise you name, they will repent from their sins and you shall surely answer them: And you will hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your servant and your people Israel..." (2Chronicles 6,24-27). There is no forgiving of sins without mentioning the name of YHWH! There is no salvation from troubles without mentioning the name of YHWH!
David King of Israel wrote: "YHWH will answer you on the day of trouble, the name of the God of Jacob shall raise you up." (Psalms Chapter 20 Verse 1). Millions of Children of Israel were burned and killed because they did not know the name of their savior; YHWH Tzevaot is His name, the Holy One of Israel!
YHWH said to Moses in His Torah: "And they shall put my name on the Children of Israel and I will bless them!" (Numbers Chapter 6 Verse 27). There is no blessing from God without mentioning His name!!
Some argue that the pronunciation of the special name is not known and therefore we can not pronounce it. In order to refute this argument let us look at Exodus Chapter 3 Verses 13-16: "And Moses said to God, Behold when I come to the Children of Israel and say to them "The God of your fathers has sent me" and they will say to me "What is His name?", what shall I tell them? And God said to Moses, Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh [I am whatever I am]! And he said, 'Thus shall you say to the Children of Israel, "Ehyeh has sent me to you!"' And God said also to Moses, Thus shall you say to the Children of Israel, 'YHWH the God of your fathers the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob has sent me to you. This is my name forever and this is my memorial (ZiCHRi) from generation to generation.'"
Thus, the Creator calls His name Ehyeh, in Binyan Kal, Future Tense, 1st person of the verb HaYaH (Lihyot) [Was (To Be)] with the vocalization EHYeH . God commanded Moses to use the 3rd person of the same verb that is YiHYeH  or YiHWeH . The Scripture uses the form "YiHWeH"  in place of the regular "YiHYeH"  in order to distinguish the special name from the common form of the verb! Therefore the name of the God of Israel is "YiHWeH"  and there is no secret or mystery here. Those who cause the name to be forgotten have been very successful in their mission and scheme to bring a holocaust upon the people of YHWH. There are few Jews who know the name of their Creator.
Dear brothers, there are difficult days ahead!! Great days of danger at the end of which shall be a great salvation and redemption! Read that which is written by the Prophet of YHWH: "And it will be after I will pour out my spirit on all flesh and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your elders will dream dreams, your youths will see visions, and even upon the man-servants and the woman-servants in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will give miracles in heaven and earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke, the sun will turn to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the Great and Terrible Day of YHWH, and it will be that all who call upon the name of YHWH will be delivered, because in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be a deliverance as YHWH has said 'And in the remnant which YHWH shall call'." (Joel Chapter 3 [English Chapter 2,28-32]).
Children of Israel, spare your souls, return to your God, return to the written Torah of Moses, and to the words of the Prophets of Truth and Justice. Keep the Sabbath from profaning it, hold your hands from doing evil! Praise YHWH - Call upon His name. The Day of YHWH approaches! Prepare for your God, Oh Israel!
AND IT WILL BE THAT ALL WHO CALL UPON THE NAME OF YHWH WILL BE DELIVERED.
