“In His Name”: What Does It Really Mean? Chapter 9 YAH-IS-SAVIOR: THE ROAD TO IMMORTALITY

One of the most trite and worn-out expressions in the English language is “in His name.” What does it really mean? All through our Christian walk to date we have uttered that phrase or a variation of it. “In the name of Jesus.” “In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

We learned, of course, to say these phrases watching and listening to others. We have sincerely believed that it was important to say them. We ended most every prayer that we’ve ever prayed with a form of “in His name.” We have recited it almost as an incantation, as if it had magical qualities that would bring healing and comfort. “In His Name” has become for us a verbal talisman swinging from our lips, knowing that somehow, if we do not say these special words, our prayers will not get through. In saying these words, we were doing the best we could; we were walking in the light that we had.

Now let us investigate and study these three words in a new light. “In His name…” In, inside, within the true name. He is pointing us to go into His name. Take His name, Yahshua, and go into that name and extract the meaning from it.

As we have already seen, the Savior’s true name is Yahshua. This name means literally, “Yah is salvation” or “Yah is Savior.” But to all who received him, who believed in His name, He gave power to become the children of God. John 1:12, RSV. Here, “receiving Him” and “believing in His name” are synonymous.

A message in His name to be believed

“Believing in His name” implies that there is a message to be believed, a truth inherent in His name. We have seen that Hebrew names are prophetical. We have seen that the Savior was named Yahshua because “he shall save His people from their sins.” And Yahshua means “Yah is Savior.” So what is the message contained within His name? That message is “Yah is the Savior.” The name “Jesus” has no message in it at all. It does not have any meaning.

But the name “Yahshua” is loaded with meaning. Inside that name is the meaning and efficacy needed to bring a person into the Spirit of the Father and to bring the Spirit into the person. “Believing in His name…” The children receive the Spirit by believing in what His name means (by believing in His name). We believe the meaning of His name—that Yahweh or Yah, the Eternal Spirit, came down to earth and poured His essence into a specially set apart human form to sacrifice Himself so that we could take on His spiritual nature. That is believing in His name, Yahshua, which is receiving what His name really means—YAH-IS-SAVIOR. For I am Yahweh thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour…I, I am Yahweh, and besides Me there is no savior…Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. Isa. 43:3, 11; 45:15.

Yes, Yah did hide Himself well in a flesh body some 2000 years ago. But He makes it very clear from the above passages in Isaiah that He is the Savior; He is the Creator. The apostle John makes it very clear that the Spirit-filled human flesh body that he had walked with for three and a half years did the creating. In the beginning was the Word…All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made…He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not…And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…John 1:1, 3, 10, 14.

Believing what His name means

There is no contradiction here. Yah did the creating, the forming, the redeeming and the saving. And Yah, clothed in human flesh, took the name “Yahshua,” Yah-Is-Savior. The very name of the Messiah points to the fact that it is the Father Yahweh who is doing the saving. Yah was in that vessel, the Messiah, reconciling the world unto Himself. The Spirit, Yah, pours Himself into His temple and works out of it to the world.

When a person believes in the name of Yahshua, he is believing what that name means—that Yah is the Savior in human form. In fact, the act of believing in the name of Yahshua is a miniature of the Creator’s plan of kingdom redemption.

If one has really received Him, that person will have believed in His name, which is to say, will have believed that the Father Yah was in human form, and that combination, Yahshua, is bringing salva- tion to the world.

Believing in Him is believing in His name

He who believes in Him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. John 3:18. When one does not believe in the Messiah, he is not believing in the meaning of His name. For He said, “He that rejects Me, rejects Him that sent Me.” If you reject the Son, you are rejecting the Father that dwells within the Son, for that is exactly where the Father Yahweh is. “Know ye not that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?” He asked.

The unbeliever in the Messiah is already judged for one reason: he has not believed in the Name of Yahshua, which is saying that Yah was not in him, saving mankind through His death, burial, and resurrection. Not believing in Messiah’s name, then, is equal to not receiving the Spirit of the Creator.

Not believing in the meaning of the name of Yahshua is equal to rejecting the light that is come into the world, and cleaving unto darkness, saying, I have no need for Yah in human form to save me (see John 3:19).

The phrase “in the name,” then, has profound meaning and carries a weighty message. First, we cannot believe in His name if we do not know His name. If we seek, He will reveal to us His true name. This knowledge, in turn, is an important key that will unlock the door that is keeping us from continuing our journey down the road to immortality.

The Savior’s name is Yahshua, Yah-Is-Savior. To believe in His name is to believe what His name actually means: Yahweh, the self-existent One that cried through Isaiah, who appeared and spoke to Noah, Abraham, Moses, and many others, offered up His perfect human incarnation and became the Author of eternal salvation for His people.

Why Was the Savior’s Name Changed from Yahshua to Jesus? Chapter 8 of YAH IS SAVIOR: THE ROAD TO IMMORTALITY

{Order your free copy of Yah Is Savior or my new book The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect. It is totally free with free shipping to my readers. Just send your mailing address to my email address: wayneman5@hotmail.com   Specify which one.}

Chapter Why was the Savior’s Name Changed from Yahshua to Jesus?

      Dr. C. J. Koster further explains why and how they changed the Savior’s name in his book, Come out of Her My People, “a factual presentation of well researched material showing exactly which elements in ancient pagan and sun worship were adopted into the Church.”  On page 60 we find the chapter entitled, “The Non-original, Substitute Name ‘Jesus,’ Traces Back to Sun-worship Too”:

     “There is not a single authoritative reference source which gives the name Jesus or Iesous as the original name of our Saviour!  All of them admit that the original form of the Name was Jehoshua or Yehoshua.  Why then, was it changed from Jehoshua or Yehoshua to Jesus?

     “Many Hebrew names of the Old Testament prophets have been “Hellenized” when these names were rewritten in the Greek New Testament.  Thus, Isaiah became Isaias, Elisha became Elissaios or Elisseus (Eliseus), and Elijah became Helias in the Greek New Testament.  The King James Version has retained some of these Hellenized  names.  Since  the  King  James  Version was published, the newer English versions have ignored these Hellenized names of the Greek New Testament, and have preferred, quite correctly, to render them as they are found in the Hebrew Old Testament, namely: Isaiah, Elisha, and Elijah.

     “Incidentally, the similarity between the Hellenized Helias (instead of Elijah) and the Greek Sun-deity Helios, gave rise to the well-known assimilation of these two by the Church.  Dr. A. B. Cook, in his book, Zeus—a Study in Ancient Religion, Vol. I, pp. 178-179, elaborates on this quoting the comments of a 5th century Christian poet and others on this.  Imagine it, Elijah identified with Helios, the Greek Sun-deity!

      “Returning to our discussion on the reluctance of the translators to persist with all of the Hellenized names in the Greek of the New Testament, one could very well ask: But why did they persist with the Hellenized Iesous of our Saviours’s Name, and its further Latinized form Iesus?  It is accepted by all that our Saviour’s Hebrew Name was Jehoshua or Yehoshua.  So why did the translators of the Scriptures not retain or restore it, as they did with the names of the Hebrew prophets?

     “It is generally agreed that our Saviour’s Name is identical (or very similar) to that of the successor to Moses, Joshua.  But “Joshua” was not the name of the man who led Israel into the Promised Land.  The Greeks substituted the Old Testament “Yehoshua” with Iesous, the same word they used for our Saviour in the New Testament.  Subsequently the Latins came and substituted it with Josue (Iosue) in the Old Testament (which became Josua in German and Joshua in English), but used Iesus in the New Testament.

     “In the Hebrew Scriptures we do not find the word “Joshua.”  In every place it is written: Yehoshua.  However,   after   the  Babylonian  captivity  we  find  the shortened form “Yeshua” in a few places—shortened, because  they  then  omitted  the second and third letters namely: WH.  Everyone who sees the names Yehoshua and Iesous will agree: there is no resemblance between the names Yehoshua and Iesous or Jesus.

     “Before we continue with our study of the words Iesous and Iesus, we would like to point out that we have been led to believe that the Saviour’s correct Name is: Yahushua.  Our Saviour said in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name.”  Again, in John 17:11 He prayed to His Father, “Keep them through Your Name which You have given Me.”  According to the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament, the United Bible Societies’ Third Edition, and the  Majority  Text.   Therefore, in John 17:11 our Saviour states that His Father’s Name had been given to Him.  Again he repeats this irrefutable fact in the next verse, John 17:12, “In your Name which You gave Me.  And I guarded them (or it).”  Read John 17:11-12 in any of the modern English versions.

     “So we have our Saviour’s clear words, in three texts, that His Father’s Name was given to Him.  Paul also testifies to this in Eph.3:14-15 as well as in Phil.2:9.  What then is His Father’s Name?  Although most scholars accept “Yahweh,” and many still cling to the older form “Yehowah” (or Jehovah), we are convinced that the correct form is Yahuweh.

     “Two factors contributed greatly to the substitution and distortion of our Saviour’s Name.  The first was the un-Scriptural superstitious teaching of the Jews that the Father’s Name is not to be uttered, that it is ineffable, that others will profane it when they use it, and that the Name must be “disguised” outside of the temple of Jerusalem.

     “Because of the Father’s Name being in His Son’s Name, this same disastrous suppression of the Name resulted in them giving a Hellenized, in fact, a surrogate name  for  our  Saviour.  He did warn us in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name…if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.”

     “The second factor was the strong anti-Judaism that prevailed amongst the Gentiles, as we have already pointed out.  The Gentiles wanted a saviour, but not a Jewish one.  They loathed the Jews, they even loathed the Elohim of the Old Testament.  Thus, a Hellenized saviour was preferred.  The Hellenized theological school at Alexandria, led by the syncretizing, allegorizing, philosophying, Gnostic-indoctrinated Clement and Origen, was the place where everything started to become distorted and adapted to suit the Gentiles.  The Messianic Belief, and its Saviour, had to become Hellenized to be acceptable to the Gentiles.

     “Where did Iesous and Iesus come from?  In Bux and Schone, Worter-buch der Antike, under “Jesus,” we read, “JESUS: really named Jehoshua.  Iesous (Greek), Iesus (Latin) is adapted from the Greek, possibly from the name of a Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso).

     “Like all authoritative sources, this dictionary admits to the real true Name of our Saviour: Jehoshua (or as we believe: Yahushua).  It then states, as most others, that the commonly known substitute, non-original, non-real name “Jesus” was adapted from the Greek.  We must remember that our Saviour was born from a Hebrew maiden, not from a Greek one.  His stepfather, His half-brothers and half-sisters, in fact all His people, were Hebrews…Furthermore, this dictionary then traces the substitute name back to the Latin Iesus, and the Greek Iesous.  It then traces the origin of the name Iesous back as being possibly adapted from the Greek healing goddess Ieso (Iaso).

     “To the uninformed I would like to point out that Iaso is the usual Greek form, while Ieso is from the Ionic dialect of the Greeks.

     “This startling discovery of the connection between Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous, is also revealed to us by the highly respected and authoritative unabridged edition of Liddell and Scott, Greek-English Lexicon, p. 816, under “Iaso.”

     “The third witness comes to us in a scholarly article by Hans Lamer in Philologische Wochenschrift, No. 25, 21 June 1930, pp. 763-765.  In this article the author recalls the fact of Ieso being the Ionic Greek goddess of healing.  Hans Lamer then postulates, because of all the evidence, that “next to Ieso man shaped a proper masculine Iesous.  This was even more welcome to the Greeks who converted to Christianity.”  He then continues, “If the above is true, then the name of our Lord which we commonly use goes back to a long lost form of the name of a Greek goddess of healing.  But to Greeks who venerated a healing goddess Ieso, a saviour Iesous must have been most acceptable. The Hellenisa-  tion was thus rather clever.”

     “This then is the evidence of three sources who, like us, do not hide the fact of the Greek name Iesous being related to Ieso, the Greek goddess of healing. The Hellenization of our Saviour’s Name was indeed most cleverly done.  To repeat our Savour’s words or warning in John 5:43, “I have come in My Father’s Name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.”

     “There is no resemblance or identifiability between our Saviour’s Name, Yahushua, and the Greek substitute for it Iesous.  The Father’s Name, Yah- or Yahu-, cannot be seen in the Greek Iesous or in the Latin Iesus, neither in the English or German Jesus.

     “In spite of attempts made to justify the “translating” of the Father’s Name and His Son’s Name, the fact remains: A personal name cannot be translated!  It is simply not done.  The name of every single person on this earth remains  the  same in all languages.  Nobody would make a fool of himself by calling Giuseppe Verdi by another name, Joseph Green, even though Giuseppe means  Joseph  and  Verdi  means Green. Satan’s  name is  the same in all languages.  He has seen to it that his name has been left unmolested!


“However, let us further investigate the names Ieso (Iaso) and Iesous.  According to ancient Greek religion, Apollo, their great Sun-deity, had a son by the name of Asclepius, the diety of healing, but also identified with the Sun.  This Asclepius had daughters, and one of them was Iaso (Ieso), the Greek goddess of healing.  Because of her father’s and grandfather’s identities as Sun-deities, she too is in the same family of Sun-deities.   Therefore, the name Iesous, which is derived from Ieso, can be traced back to Sun-worship.

     “We find other related names, all of them variants of the same name, Iasus, Iasion, Iasius, in ancient Greek religion, as being sons of Zeus.  Even in India we find a similar name Issa or Issi, as surnames for their deity Shiva.  Quite a few scholars have remarked on the similarity between the names of the Indian Issa or Issi, the Egyptian Isis and the Greek Iaso.

     “In our research on the deity Isis we made two startling discoveries.  The one was that the son of Isis was called Isu by some.  However, the second discovery yielded even further light.  The learned scholar of Egyptian religion, Hans Bonnet, reveals to us in his Reallexikon der agyptischen Religionsgeschichte, p. 326, that the name of Isis appears in the hieroglyphic inscriptions as ESU or ES.  No wonder it has been remarked, “Between Isis and Jesus as names, confusion could arise.”  This Isis also had a child, which was called Isu by some.  This Isu or Esu sounds exactly like the “Jesu” that we find the Saviour called, in the translated Scriptures of many languages, e.g. many African languages.

     “Rev. Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p.164, also remarked on the similarity of Jesus and Isis. “IHS—Iesus Hominum Salvator—But let a Roman worshipper of   Isis   (for  in  the  age  of  the  emperors  there    were innumerable worshippers of Isis in Rome) cast his eyes upon them, and how will he read them, of course, according to his own well-known system of idolatry: Isis, Horus, Seb.”  He then continues with a similar example of “skillful planning” by “the very same spirit, that converted the festival of the Pagan Oannes into the feast of the Christian Joannes.”  (The Hebrew name of the baptizer, and that of the apostle as well, was Yochanan, or Yehochanan).

     “Thus, by supplanting the Name of our Saviour Yahushua with that of the Hellenized Iesous (in capitals: IHSOUS), which became the Latinized Iesus, it was easy to make the pagans feel welcome—those pagans who worshipped the Greek Ieso (Iaso), of which  the masculine counterpart is Iesous, as well as those who worshipped the Egyptian Esu (Isis)…

     “As I have stated, there is no resemblance between the Name Yahushua and the name Jesus.  Neither is there any resemblance between their meanings.  Yahushua means: “the Salvation of Yah or Yahu.”  “Jesus” is derived from Iesus, derived from Iesous (IHSOUS), obviously derived from the Greek goddess of healing, Ieso or Iaso…Further the short form, or original source of the name Iesous (IHSOUS) is Ies (HIS), the very surname of Bacchus, the Sun-deity.

     “Therefore, the two names differ completely in their origin, and in their meaning.  And more important: Our Saviour’s Name contains the Name of His Father, which the substitute name does not.”

Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality Chapter 6 “Secular Sources Confirm the Name of Yahweh”

Chapter 6 

 Secular Sources Confirm the Name of Yahweh 

     Sometimes it helps us to hear it from another source, to have it confirmed from an expert. The following is a quote from the Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 23, 1970 edition, page 867:

    “YAHWEH, the proper name of the God of Israel; it is composed of four consonants (YHWH) in Hebrew and is therefore called the tetragrammaton.  The name was first revealed to Moses (Ex.3), but the god of Moses was the God of the fathers (Ex.3:6,15), known to the Israelites as El Shaddai (Ex. 6:2-3).  In the bible, the name Yahweh is derived from the verbal root “to be,” “to exist,” and means “he who is” (Ex. 3:14 ff.).  Other etymologies, suggested by modern scholars, lack cogency: no real parallels have been found in the Egyptian or Babylonian pantheon; a god Yaw in the ancient Canaanite city of Ugarit is poorly attested; and the close links between the Israelites and the Kenites are unlikely to have included the adopting of the Kenite god.

     “The origin of the name Yahweh must be sought within Israel itself, and may well be older than the time of Moses, for the Bible speaks of a much earlier institution of his worship (Gen. 4:26), and the first syllable of Jochebed,  the  name  of  Moses’  mother,  seems   to   be derived from Yahweh.  Possibly the tribe of Levi or the family of Moses already knew the name Yahweh, which may have been originally, in its short form Yah or Yahu, a religious invocation of no precise meaning called forth by the terrible splendour of the holy made manifest.  If this is so, Moses did not receive from God a revelation of a new name; instead, a name already familiar was given, in his prophetic experience, a new meaning which thereafter prevailed.  But there is no need to reject the derivation of Yahweh from the verb “to be,” for it is supported by occurrences in Babylonian tests of the verbal root ewu (emu) meaning “to be” or “to exist” which also, in the imperfect tense, forms part of proper names such as Yawi-ilu, “the god (ilu) exists (yawu).”  The pronunciation of the Hebrew name of God may have varied in antiquity; the accuracy of the form Yahweh is supported by both the etymology in Ex. 3 and the transliteration used by Church Fathers such as Clement of Alexandria.

     “When Moses asked God his name, the answer he received, “I AM WHO I AM” (Ex. 3:14), must be understood as a revelation of profound meaning, not as a refusal by God to disclose his true identity.  The revelation does not dissolve the mystery that surrounds God, but the passage in Exodus shows that the revelation alone enabled Moses to accomplish his mission.  The emphasis lies not simply on God’s existence but on his close and dynamic presence with Moses and his people (Ex. 3:12).  This presence and power of God is stressed in the frequent biblical phrase “Yahweh Sabaoth,” “Yahweh of hosts,” those hosts both earthly and heavenly which God uses to establish his sovereignty over Israel, and through Israel over the whole world.  The name Yahweh was thus for the faithful Israelite a never-failing source of confidence, power and joy.  The ideas of God’s eternity and changelessness, not found  in  the  Exodus  passage, are present in later texts (e.g., Isa. 40:28; 41:4; 43:13; 44:6) and became predominant in the Greek versions and in most modern versions.”

     Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language, 1972 edition, page 1645 has this to say:   Yahweh, [Heb.: see JEHOVAH] God: a form of the Hebrew name in the Old Testament: see TETRAGRAMMATON.   Jehovah, [modern transliteration of the Tetragrammaton YHWH; the vowels appear through arbitrary transference of the vowel points of adonai, my Lord], (page 756).

     So we see that “Yahweh” is a very close rendition of YHWH, much closer than “Jehovah”, which is a modern appellation of the divine name.

Praise God by His Name YAH

{Order your free copy of Yah Is Savior or my new book The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect. It is totally free with free shipping to my readers. Just send your mailing address to my email address: wayneman5@hotmail.com   Specify which one.}

The translators of the King James Bible substituted the title “the LORD” (in capital letters) for the Hebrew name of God–YHWH, pronounced Yahweh by most scholars.  Over 6,700 times did they do this–except for one instance.

The verse is found in Psalm 68: 4. “Sing unto God, sing praises to His name: extol Him who rides upon the heavens by his name YAH, and rejoice before him.”

The prophet King David of Israel, inspired by the Holy Spirit, tells us in this verse to “sing praises to His name.”  And then he tells us how to do this properly.  He gives us the exact name of God right after the commandment.  We are to extol and praise Him “by His name YAH.” 

We are to address God and use His true Hebrew name YAH or YAHWEH in our praise of Him.  In fact, the Spirit of God Himself speaking through David gives us a command.  “Sing praises to His name…extol Him by His name YAH.”  It could not be plainer in English.

But very few people know about this.  And many who hear this for the first time immediately have doubts.  They will say, “The LORD just wants us to praise Him.  He doesn’t mind us saying ‘the LORD.'”  And yet this scripture is perfectly clear.”

Why won’t people receive this?  Christ asked the question this way. “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?”  We are commanded to “praise Him by His name YAH.”  He went on to say, “You have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.”  And, “In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”  (Matthew 15: 3-9).

We all learned to say, “Praise the LORD” instead of “Praise YAH” because of traditions handed down to us.  And the sad irony here is that we all have literally praised YAH in Hebrew when we said, “HalleluYah.”  This Hebrew word means–you guessed it–Praise YAH!

It takes a real hunger and thirst for God to be able to be open hearted enough to say, “I was in error.  This is true and I am receiving it and walking in it no matter what the world may think or say.”  KWH

Hallowed Be Thy Name, Yahweh

Your Father’s name is Yahweh–if you consider yourself a child of the Hebrew God of the Bible. 

Christ is saying in the “Lord’s Prayer” that the Father’s name is “hallowed,” holy and extremely special.  How are we to appreciate it and make it holy if we don’t even know the Father’s name?

 Not many know that the Hebrew God of the Bible was known by Moses, Daniel, Isaiah, and all the rest of the prophets and apostles by His name Yahweh

“The Hebrew national literature centres in the thought of God. It is Yahweh who is all and in all, the father, the leader, the hope, the hero of his people” ( www.1911encyclopedia.org/Christianity ).  This quote is from the article “Christianity” in the Encyclopedia Britannica, 1911 edition, entirely on-line at this link.  There are 142 articles that mention Yahweh (www.1911encyclopedia.org/index.php?q=yahweh&title=LoveToKnow_1911%3ASearch&site=1911&fulltext=LoveToSearch ). 

We’ve been told that “God” is His name.  But “God” is a common noun that has been capitalized.  “GOD, the common Teutonic word for a personal object of religious worship. It is thus…applied to all those superhuman beings of the heathen mythologies who exercise power over nature and man…The word “god,” on the conversion of the Teutonic races to Christianity, was adopted as the name of the one Supreme Being, the Creator of the universe” (www.1911encyclopedia.org/God).  It was adopted, but God is not the name of the Father.  Yahweh is His name.  “This is my name forever,” Yahweh said to Moses (Exodus 3:15).

Some think that the Father’s name is “LORD.”  But “LORD” is merely a title of the Father.  This started when the King James translators substituted “the LORD” for the Hebrew name “Yahweh” over 6,700 times.  Only once did they leave “Yah” (the shortened form) in Psalms 68:4: “Sing praises to his name…Jah.”  The editors of the New King James Version corrected “Jah” to “Yah” ( www.yahwehisthesavior.com/sonspreface.htm  I’ve published two books on the subject.  I’ve placed both on-line; they can be read here free).

When Christ was teaching the disciples (us) how to pray by saying “hallowed be thy name,” He wants us to revere, keep holy, consecrate, and venerate the Father’s name.  That is what the word “to hallow” means. 

But first the Father’s name must be restored to our knowledge.  We cannot truly make His name holy and consecrated in our hearts if we don’t know His name. 

And the Father’s name is Yahweh.  We must keep this in our minds when we communicate with Him.  For His name is extremely important to Him.  So it should be of extreme importance to us His princes and princesses.  Or how else could we address the King?

Armed with this knowledge, the scriptures about His name will open to us.  It is a key.  But be forewarned.  The knowledge of the Father’s name is a pearl, a gem.  And Christ warns, “Cast not your pearls before swine, for they will turn and rend you with it.”  Be careful who you share this with.  It is dynamite knowledge and needs to be handled carefully.  You will be vilified and derided for sharing this knowledge–usually by those close to you. 

Share your thoughts with me about this or any topic addressed on this blog.  For it is your platform, too.  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Hallelu Yah–God Gets the Last Laugh

     I was reading Psalm 150 the other day in the New International Version, and I noticed a footnote at the end of verse 1.  The verse said, “Praise the LORD.”  So I checked it at the bottom of the page, and the footnote read, “Hebrew Hallelu Yah.” 

     So I looked up Hallelu and it does mean “praise.”  I looked up “Yah” in Wikipedia and it said this: “The name Yah is composed of the first two letters of YHWH.  It appears often in names, such as Elijah…as well as the expression Hallelujah.”  So Yah is God’s name and was translated “the LORD.” 

    I looked up “YHWH” in Wikipedia and it referred me to “Tetragrammaton”:  “The name of the God of Israel, written with four letters…appears over 6,800 times” in the Bible.

     Halleluyah.  How many times have I heard that word in my life?  I immediately thought of an old hymn.  “Hallelujah, Thine the glory.  Hallelujah, Amen.  Hallelujah, Thine the glory, “Revive Us Again.”  And it appears not just in hymns–in popular music, Ray Charles singing “Hallelujah, I Just Love Her So.”  The “Glory, glory, Hallelujah” of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.”  And Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”  And the “Hallelujah Chorus” of Mendel’s Messiah. 

     And the movies, books, sayings, quotations.  And then I realized that the word “Halleluyah” permeates the very fabric of Western Civilization and American society, for we all have heard and said this word hundreds of times in our lives.

     And then I thought of God, sitting on His throne, looking down on us and smiling.  For He has the last laugh.  The “wise” men of this modern age have worked diligently to eradicate both God and His name out of the minds of the people.  And despite their efforts, the people still are praising His name in His original language Hebrew, when they say, “HalleluYah.”  Even the atheists praise His name when they say, “HalleluYah.”  He’s got to be laughing right now.            Kenneth Wayne Hancock
