I’ve decided to start a Blog and The subject matter of the blog will vary from time to time between subjects like Bible prophecy and the study of the occult and secret societies. I’m going to be posting portions of my newest book as well as chapters of 2 other books that I started writing over the past 2 years but haven’t finished. Although the books themselves are not finished, the chapters that I’ve written will make excellent blog posts and I truly believe that you all will enjoy them which is one of the main reasons I write in the first place. I’m going to post a portion of the book “The New Atlantis” by Sir Francis Bacon at the bottom of this post that tells the story of how the city of Bensalem was converted to Christianity. This book will be the subject of my first Blog post and I will be breaking down the book to see if there are any occult overtones in the book and also looking at the way secret societies like the Rosicrucians and Freemasons saw and used the book as a blueprint for their “New Atlantis” the United States of America. I know for myself after reading the book I wondered if it was used as a blueprint for the US by the Masonic founding fathers like Franklin and Washington. The main reason I decided to start blogging is because I want to write about things that will help bring people to Christ and also help Believers with their walk with Christ. If I can Help someone with their walk with Christ or give insight into the occult world that’s feeding the beast system, all that matters is that it’s helping equip the saints of The Most High for the coming battle. Ok enough blathering, don’t forget to leave a comment….
THE CONVERSION OF BENSALEM From “The New Atlantis” By Francis Bacon
About twenty years after the ascension of our Saviour it came to pass [c. A.D. 50], that there was seen by the people of Renfusa (a city upon the eastern coast of our island, within sight, the night was cloudy and calm), as it might be some mile in the sea, a great pillar of light; not sharp, but in form of a column, or cylinder, rising from the sea, a great way up toward heaven; and on the top of it was seen a large cross of light, more bright and resplendent than the body of the pillar. Upon which so strange a spectacle, the people of the city gathered apace together upon the sands, to wonder; and so after put themselves into a number of small boats to go nearer to this marvellous sight. But when the boats were come within about sixty yards of the pillar, they found themselves all bound, and could go no further, yet so as they might move to go about, but might not approach nearer; so as the boats stood all as in a theatre, beholding this light, as a heavenly sign. It so fell out that there was in one of the boats one of the wise men of the Society of Salomon’s House (which house, or college, my good brethren, is the very eye of this kingdom), who having awhile attentively and devoutly viewed and contemplated this pillar and cross, fell down upon his face; and then raised himself upon his knees, and lifting up his hands to heaven, made his prayers in this manner:”‘Lord God of heaven and earth; thou hast vouchsafed of thy grace, to those of our order to know thy works of creation, and true secrets of them; and to discern, as far as appertaineth to the generations of men, between divine miracles, works of nature, works of art and impostures, and illusions of all sorts. I do here acknowledge and testify before this people that the thing we now see before our eyes is thy finger, and a true miracle. And forasmuch as we learn in our books that thou never workest miracles, but to a divine and excellent end (for the laws of nature are thine own laws, and thou exceedest them not but upon great cause), we most humbly beseech thee to prosper this great sign, and to give us the interpretation and use of it in mercy; which thou dost in some part secretly promise, by sending it unto us.’“When he had made his prayer he presently found the boat he was in movable and unbound; whereas all the rest remained still fast; and taking that for an assurance of leave to approach, he caused the boat to be softly and with silence rowed toward the pillar; but ere he came near it, the pillar and cross of light broke up, and cast itself abroad, as it were, into a firmament of many stars, which also vanished soon after, and there was nothing left to be seen but a small ark or chest of cedar, dry and not wet at all with water, though it swam; and in the fore end of it, which was toward him, grew a small green branch of palm; and when the wise man had taken it with all reverence into his boat, it opened of itself, and there were found in it a book and a letter, both written in fine parchment, and wrapped in sindons of linen. The book contained all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament, according as you have them (for we know well what the churches with you receive), and the Apocalypse itself; and some other books of the New Testament, which were not at that time written, were nevertheless in the book. And for the letter, it was in these words:”‘I, Bartholomew, a servant of the Highest, and apostle of Jesus Christ, was warned by an angel that appeared to me in a vision of glory, that I should commit this ark to the floods of the sea. Therefore I do testify and declare unto that people where God shall ordain this ark to come to land, that in the same day is come unto them salvation and peace, and good-will from the Father, and from the Lord Jesus.'”There was also in both these writings, as well the book as the letter, wrought a great miracle, conform to that of the apostles, in the original gift of tongues. For there being at that time, in this land, Hebrews, Persians, and Indians, besides the natives, everyone read upon the book and letter, as if they had been written in his own language. And thus was this land saved from infidelity (as the remain of the old world was from water) by an ark, through the apostolical and miraculous evangelism of St. Bartholomew.” And here he paused, and a messenger came and called him forth from us. So this was all that passed in that conference.”
EXPOSING THE LIES OF JOHN RAMIREZ……
This is a subject that I take no joy in writing about. I do not like having to be the one who exposes people who claim the name of Christ but in truth are wolves in sheep’s clothing. However as much as I’d rather be writing about a subject like end times Bible prophecy or the Nephilim, I have to write what I’m called to write about and as a watchmen and a shepard it’s my duty to expose anyone seeking to take advantage of my Brothers and Sisters or lead them astray. John Ramirez is one of those wolves looking to exploit the good will and trusting nature of Believers in order to make money. Ramirez claims to be an ex high priest of satan who converted to Christianity after he left his body and went to hell where the devil tried to kill him and there were people there doing satanic rituals and witchcraft. He says that when Satan tried to kill him a huge cross manifested right in front of him in hell and knocked the devil back saving John and sending him back into his body where he came back like someone who had to be shocked back to life in the hospital. There are many problems with the story he tells that we will talk about throughout this post, but the most obvious problem with Mr. Ramirez’s version of his testimony is his supposed trip to hell. You see friends Satan is not in hell yet and he will never be reigning like a king in hell. There also definitely aren’t people doing witchcraft or satanic rituals in hell. Even if Satan and his followers were in hell now they would be suffering In the lake of fire, not going about their business like they were still alive. The Bible gives us a perfect picture of hell and not only is the devil not in hell yet, but there aren’t any people in hell yet either. The reason people are confused about this is because so many english translations of the Bible use the english word hell for 2 different greek words. The Greek word Hades and the Greek word Gehenna are both translated as hell in the New Testament when Hades just means the grave or the place of the dead, while Gehenna is the word in the greek for the lake of Fire and should be translated as Hell. The Bible is clear that no one is cast into the lake of Fire aka hell until the resurrection and judgement after the second coming of Christ. At the same time when people die they go to Hades to await resurrection and judgement. There are two compartments where people are in Hades, Paradise where the saved dead are awaiting the resurrection at the second coming of Christ, and the lower part of Hades where the unsaved dead are until they are cast into Gehenna or hell on judgment day. This lower compartment of Hades is mistranslated as hell in many english translations of the Bible. Mr Ramirez either isn’t aware of the mistranslation or he knows that the majority of people aren’t aware of it and won’t know that his trip to hell story can’t possibly be true. This is only one of the reasons why John Ramirez shouldn’t be trusted. Another big red flag is the company in which he keeps. He frequently appears on the TV shows of NAR/WOF false teachers like Sid Roth, Creflo Dollar, and others on the Daystar network and TBN. He fits right in on these shows because like the prosperity pundits who hosts them money is the god he truly worships. I think about this every time I hear his testimony of how money was the main thing he was after while he was a Satanist and I wonder what’s changed. Allow me to say that other than his story about going to hell, I don’t believe that John Ramirez is completely lying about his conversion to Christianity and I believe that he probably started out with the intent of serving God and walking with Christ while at Time Square Church in New York. I was originally drawn to John Ramirez Because Time Square Church was founded by David Wilkerson. David Wilkerson is one of my favorite evangelist and personal heroes. He was the man of God that I aspired to be like. There aren’t many preachers alive today with the anointing of the Holy Spirit and fire of God like David Wilkerson had. The Church is currently pastored by Tim Dilena. I don’t know much about him or how he feels about John’s testimony and Books and I don’t like to speculate. It’s obvious for anyone with eyes to see that John Ramirez is marketing Christianity and the Word of God. Looking at his website you’ll see that there is something for sale on every page and for a price he will teach you how to battle the devil in his spiritual warfare bootcamp and because he is a former satanist, many many people pay him to teach them what they can learn for free in the Word of God. What they are really paying for is his personal experience in the occult and his celebrity. That’s what he’s using to exploit the people of God. Regardless of whether or not he started out as a sincere Man of God with sound doctrine, Because of his WOF/NAR beliefs, practices, and associations, he is no longer teaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and needs to repent. I will be following John Ramirez closely and doing follow up Blog posts about him in the future. I want to close this post out saying that it is not my intention to defame or slander John Ramirez and if I should find that I was wrong about Mr Ramirez, I will immediately write a retraction and an apology. That being said I am not one to write anything about someone without completely researching them. I did my due diligence before I ever thought about writing this post and I wrote it to warn my Brothers and Sisters to be good bereans and learn about the people that they are watching and listening to. Finally I’ll say once more that there are wolves in sheep’s clothing walking around looking for people to prey on. This too is spiritual warfare and if you have the whole armor of God on, then you won’t be deceived by these false teachers. May God bless each and every one of you. Grace and Peace
HOW THE APOSTLES and SOME DISCIPLES OF CHRIST DIED:
1. Matthew – suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, killed by a sword wound.
2. Mark – died in Alexandria, Egypt, after being dragged by horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke – was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous preaching to the lost.
4. John – faced martyrdom when he was boiled in a huge basin or caldron of boiling oil during a wave of persecution in Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered from death. John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation there on the island of Patmos . The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve as bishop of Edessa in modern day Turkey . He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully.
5. Peter – was crucified upside down on a cross. According to church tradition it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die in the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6. James – the leader of the church in Jerusalem, was thrown down over a hundred feet from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club. *This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the temptation.
7. James the Son of Zebedee – was a fisherman by trade when Jesus called him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched in amazement as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, the Roman officer declared his new faith to the judge and knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.
8. Bartholomew – also known as Nathaniel was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to death by a whip.
9. Andrew – was crucified on an X-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony. His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words: ‘I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.’ He continued to preach to his tormentors for two days until he expired.
10. Thomas – was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Sub-continent.
11. Jude – was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.
12. Matthias – the apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.
13. Paul – was tortured and then BEHEADED by the evil Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament. Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our sufferings here are indeed minor compared to the intense persecution and cold cruelty faced by the apostles and disciples during their times, for the sake of Christ and the faith.Make this message your contribution to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
THE SALVATION OF OUR PRECIOUS SOULS IS NOT THROUGH RELIGIOUS PERSUASION BUT THROUGH A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.
ARE SACRED NAMERS MISSING THE POINT? HOW HEBREW IS THE HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT?
I want to start off by saying that I know that many of those who read this blog post will reject it as soon as it says something that goes against their paradigm and won’t finish reading it. Those people are not ignorant or are they necessarily lacking in discernment or the Holy Spirit. They just aren’t able to see the forest yet for the trees. They aren’t ready to let go of their own personal bias yet for whatever reason. I know people who I admire greatly that are in many ways responsible for my research into the anti-nicene church father’s and getting back to original Kingdom Christianity, but who unfortunately still celebrate the pagan holidays of Rome. These people are blessed with discernment in many situations and they show more fruit of the Spirit than many others who don’t celebrate the pagan holidays of Babylon and Rome. So if you choose to reject the truth shared in this post, I’m not giving up on you yet. God will open your eyes and take away your cognitive dissonance in His own time. Now with that said let’s drop this truth bomb! I need to tell you all that I borrowed much of what I write in this article from some external sources and another well researched article. Now let’s look at the sacred name movement from in the Hebrew Roots crowd. This is a group that I was very nearly sucked into myself, and for over a year I would use the name Yeshua more than I used the name of Jesus because I thought I was using the original Hebrew name of our Savior. I never went so far as to say that you shouldn’t use the name Jesus but there are many who do. The sacred name movement is a segment of Hebrew Roots Believers who believe that if you don’t use the correct Hebrew name and pronunciation of both the Father and the Son then God doesn’t hear your prayers. Now that’s definitely not all they believe and I was paraphrasing but they are no different than many sects of christianity in that they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of their doctrine’s main viewpoint. They disagree on the correct way to pronounce the name of God in His different Forms. All of their pronunciations of the name of God come from the modern Hebrew form of the name of God called the tetragrammaton that is spelled without the vowels present as YHWH or YHVH. Some of the different variations of this name are Yahuah, Yahweh, Jehovah, Yehovah, Yeshua, Yahushua, Yahusha, among others. The one thing that these people do agree on is that the name certainly can’t be Jesus bc the name Jesus isn’t Hebrew, but is this true? If you read this article in it’s entirety, you will know the truth of this as well as how to respond to the criticisms of Hebrew Rooters toward your use of the Name above all names, Jesus. What is Traditionally Taught: Most people are taught that in the original Old Testament, the name of the creator appeared as “YHWH” or perhaps YHVH, and then people add vowels between each letter, in order to translate it into either Yahweh, Jehovah or some other variation of the Y names such as Yehovah, Yahshua, Yeshua, etc. All of these names & hundreds of variations are based upon the letters of YHWH or JHWH. And this is why many people believe that “Jesus” should be written as “Yeshua” or some other Y name variant.The very first thing we need to understand is that when you go to school in Israel, they teach you that the language of the Jews is not the original Hebrew language. The style of writing letters is also not original Hebrew. As historical records show, and as they teach you in school in Israel, the style of writing & the alphabet is called “the Assyrian Script”. This is because when Israel was taken captive by Babylon, thousands of years ago, in the B.C. years, the original, true Hebrew language, called “Paleo-Hebrew” was banned by Babylon & so was the original, true name of the creator. The Israelites were forced to learn, speak & write the Assyrian language & Assyrian Script which both the Assyrian Empire & the Babylonian Empire used. Daniel 1:4 “Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.”It is also documented, well known fact that Daniel wrote Daniel 1:1 until Dan.2:4 in Paleo-Hebrew. But when he got to 2:4, he started writing in Assyrian, Babylonian Aramaic. This change of language was required. The Israelites eventually translated the entire scriptures into the Assyrian language in a new corrupt bible called “the Targum” & almost completely lost their original language. To this very day, the Jews do not speak Hebrew, but rather Assyrian Aramaic, but with a Jewish dialect. All of this is the documented facts of history! When you look at most websites that proclaim the Y names, what they are calling the “Hebrew” language is not the Hebrew language. They are pointing you to the Babylonian Assyrian language, and they are completely ignorant of these very basic elementary school facts! They only call it “Hebrew” because it had become the language of the Hebrew people when they were in Babylon. This is documented fact & well known in Israel. When you look at Strong’s Concordance of the Old Testament, look at the top of the page if you have a hard copy. It says “Aramaic” dictionary, and if you have an older copy, it says “Chaldean dictionary”! Strong’s Concordance does not give you the original Hebrew words of the original bible! Instead, it gives you the Assyrian, Babylonian Aramaic words of the very corrupt Babylonian Targum bible that the Israelites were forced against their will to write while in captivity!
Notice chart #1 of the alphabet family tree. Notice how “Hebrew” & “Syriac” are brother languages, sons of Aramaic (Assyrian). Yet “Old Hebrew” or Paleo-Hebrew is not. They both descended from Phoenician language but Paleo-Hebrew & regular Hebrew are of two different branches. Notice also how that Old Hebrew or Paleo-Hebrew is listed as a brother of Greek. Examine chart #4 farther down the page to see that true ancient Hebrew looks & sounds like Greek. History also shows that the Greeks attained their language from the Israelites. Actually, Greek is Hebrew. You can see that very clearly by comparing the languages in these charts! Modern Hebrew & the so called “Hebrew” of Strong’s Concordance and Assyrian, Babylonian Aramaic look & sound alike, they are closely related, and are actually the same!
Chart #2Aramaic/Hebrew comparison
Chart #3Another comparison of Aramaic & modern Hebrew (Language of Strong’s Concordance & Masoretic text) SourceProto-Semitic Hebrew Aramaic
Biblical Aramaic is closely related to the Hebrew language of Strong’s Concordance as both are in the Northwest Semitic language family. Some obvious similarities are listed below. – Same Aramaic square script (which was adopted to write Hebrew in place of the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet found in earlier inscriptions). – The system of vocalization used is the same for the portions of the bible written in Hebrew & those written in Aramaic. – Verb systems are based on tri-consonantal roots. – Similar functions of the verbal conjugations. – Nouns have three states: the absolute, construct, & emphatic
The fact is that the original sacred Old Testament scriptures were translated more than once. As generations went by & as language evolved & Israel was affected by the evolution of languages and the Babylonian and Assyrian captivity, the scriptures were translated into the language of each era. For example, the scriptures were eventually translated into Greek during the Greek & Roman Empire and then eventually into Latin during the time that the Roman Catholic Church was at its height in world domination. Eventually it was translated into German by Martin Luther who greatly persecuted the Jewish people. Then eventually the bible was translated into English, but it was old English due to the language of the time. Eventually into modern English with the New King James & other modern versions. Time & evolution of languages changed the language of the bible though different eras. The same was true during the earlier eras. The scriptures were originally written in “Old-Paleo Hebrew” (true Hebrew) then eventually translated into a Jewish dialect of the Babylonian language of Chaldean/Aramaic. Aramaic, which is actually Assyrian, the language of Assyria & Babylon, was adopted by the Hebrews when taken captive to Assyria & Babylon. Aramaic replaced ancient Paleo-Hebrew. Examine very closely any hard copy of the Strong’s Concordance. Notice the “Hebrew” dictionary in the back of the book. Notice how it says “Hebrew and Chaldean Dictionary”. Then pick any page of that Hebrew/Chaldean dictionary. Any page. Look at the words on the page. Notice how it says “(Chaldean Origin)” for not just one word but several words, on every page of the old testament words! The common claim is that the Aramaic language is used only in the books of Daniel, Ezra and a few other places in the bible. However, if you really study & examine all the facts, all of the Strong’s Concordance Dictionary of “Hebrew” words are actually of the Aramaic, Babylonian, Chaldean or Assyrian languages, not true Hebrew. Chaldean was the 11th dynasty of Babylon. Chaldean was the empire of Babylon during the Babylonian captivity of the Hebrew people. It is at that time that the original scriptures were translated into Aramaic/Babylonian/Chaldean/Syrian. The Aramaic translation of scripture was called the Targum. Major Proof Source 1. Source 2. Source 3. The language of the Hebrew People changed from Hebrew to the Chaldean language which is actually Assyrian. Concerning when Ptolemy of Egypt was going to translate the bible into Greek, The respected Jewish historian, Josephus, said in his book “The Antiquities of The Jews” Book 12, Chapter 2, (page 309 in my copy which is copyright 1987 Hendrickson Publishers) “…will cause no small pain in getting them translated into the Greek tongue: (15) that the character in which they are written seems to be like to that which is the proper character of the Syrians, and that its sound, when pronounced, is like to theirs also…” What does “Aramaic” mean? It means “Assyrian”! Aram is just another ancient name for Syria. Aram is Aramaic or Assyrian.- http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H758&t=KJV- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aram_(biblical_region)- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic_language- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_Babylonian_Aramaic
Therefore, Strong’s concordance doesn’t point to true Hebrew. It points to the Assyrian language. The Israelites adopted Chaldean (Babylonian/Aramaic/Assyrian) words & religious beliefs. The word “Chaldean” means “moon” or “moon worshippers”. Smith’s Bible Dictionary 1878-1895 (which I personally own a copy of) on page 52 under the word “Chaldea”, says that Chaldea means moon in Armenian. Armenian is another language that descended from Aramaic and is closely related to the language of the so called Hebrew of Strong’s Concordance & the corrupted Babylonian translation of Holy scriptures. If Chaldean means moon or moon worshippers, then the Chaldean language is the language of the moon worshippers. The word Chaldea also means Astrology or an astrologer. It is the language of wicca. Witches actually chant the letters. Something else very interesting to me is the meaning of the words following Chaldean in Strong’s Concordance. The number of confirmations related to the word Chaldean is astounding! H3778 astrologer, 3779 magian, 3780 covering the flesh, 3781 axe, 3782 fall fail cast down stumble ruin, 3783 ruin fall, 3784 whisper a spell, to enchant (as to chant the 4 letters YHWH), sorcerer, witch 3785 witchcraft, 3786 witchcraft, 3787 prosper, 3788 success, 3789 to engrave to write to inscribe to record, 3790 write, 3791 something written scripture, 3792 writing, 3793 letter or other mark branded on skin, 3805 capital of a column chapiter (as in the deadly head wound revelation), 3803 crown besiege restrain self, 3806 to butt or pound bray (as in the red bray horse of Revelation 6), 3807 strike, beat down to pieces break in pieces destroy stamp (as in the action of the end time Son of Perdition empire upon the whole earth). Now, let’s get one thing straight, there is no such thing as a “pagan language” or a “holy language”. All languages are cousins. However, there are certain words that refer to pagan gods/demons. Both the Hebrew roots “sacred names” believers and I agree that there are certain names that we must avoid & never use to refer to the True Almighty Holy Creator, because there are names that actually are connected & originated with the worship of pagan gods. Our differences lay in the question of what names?
What Was Originally Written?
Let’s take a look at how the name of the creator was written in the Paleo-Hebrew language in the scrolls of the oldest known fragments of the Old Testament. In these first 2 images, the scrolls were written in Aramaic. But when they wrote the name of the creator/God, they wrote his name in Paleo-Hebrew. This is why his name really stands out and appears different from the surrounding text. This is because these scribes understood that the holy name of The Almighty should never be translated or corrupted, changed or altered in any way. When they wrote the creator’s name, they were sure to write it the original way! This first image is of the book of Psalms in the Dead Sea Scrolls, found in cave #11. This image shows columns 20 through 24 of the Psalms Scroll from Qumran Cave 11. These columns include text from: Psalm 139 Psalm 137, Psalm 138, a psalm that is not found in any Masoretic Text but is known from the Greek Septuagint of Ben Sira 51 (Ecclesiasticus), a non-canonical Psalm called “Apostrophe to Zion:, Psalm 93, Psalm 141, Psalm 133, Psalm 144, and a Psalm known from the Syriac version of the bible (Syriac Psalm 3). Psalm 141 (verses 5-10) are the first 6 lines from the top of the second column from the left, after that you have Psalm 133 for the next 5 lines followed by Psalm 144
The name of the creator is circled in the image above.
1. Reading from right to left, the first letter is the ancient Hebrew Jot/Jota/Jud. Y name followers erroneously call it the “Yod” because they are focusing on letters & sounds of the Assyrian language. It looks like Z with a line through it. But it does not have the modern English Z sound. According to what other sound it was connected to in a word, it could have the sound of J, I or E. Since it was connected with the vowel sound of the next letter in the divine name, it must have the J sound. A website at www.orbilat.com/Languages/Latin/Grammar/Latin-Pronunciation-Syllable-Accent.html shows the mandatory rules of the Latin language which most truth seekers would be very weary of. But the fact is that Latin is just a form of Greek, which is a form of Paleo Hebrew as I have already proven earlier in this article. Latin is not demonic. It’s just an ancient language related to Paleo Hebrew. (The rule of J sound applied to Latin, Greek & Paleo Hebrew.) In the source article, the first mention of the letter sound of J, it includes this quote:
“For convenience we will use the letter j (named jota) to mark the [j] sound, as it is common from the Middle Ages onward”.It does not say that the j sound started in the middle ages, but was common in the middle ages.
Then at the bottom of the article it says:”By the epoch of the Late empire (3rd and 4th c.) the diphthongs ae and oe were equalized with the short e and au with the short o. The pronunciation of y coincided with that of i and by then the letter name ypsillon was replaced in the popular language by i graeca Greek i.”It does not say that it was pronounced Y in every word and combination of letters. The first section mentioned already declared rules for when it was pronounced with J sound. Nothing in the bottom section demands a Y sound in every word possible. Then it says: “The most important phonetic change of that period was, however, the palatalization of c and g before the anterior vowels e and i and the equalized with them ae, oe and y…G was palatalized in all Latin speaking world to [D3]. The consonantal i [j] was also transformed to [D3].” The only thing this says is that in the Latin language the J sound became mandatory in the 3-4th century, which is more than 1500-1600 years earlier than the Y name people admit! The article doesn’t prove beyond any doubt what sounds existed and did not exist in the life time of Jesus and in the B.C. years. But it does prove that the J sound is extremely earlier than the Y name people want to confess. The article does not prove that the Y sound was required in every word before the 3rd century. The article does enough to cause a huge earthquake in the foundation of the Y name doctrine. Where did these rules come from in the 3rd century A.D.? Of course, it would have come from the usage of words before the 3rd century. Words, sounds and letters are always used by the population before declared mandatory by the so called experts. Also, there were no audio recordings in the ancient civilizations. The study of ancient languages is complex and ever evolving. We must keep digging and looking; and examine all of the evidence, not just one article or one source. Please take the time to examine all of the evidence that I present in this article. If you are sincere about knowing the truth you must look at more than just one piece of the puzzle. Consider the tons of proof presented below!
Y name followers claim there were no vowels in Hebrew. But how could you write, read or speak without vowels? That’s nonsense! Archaeological discoveries of coins, etc prove that there were vowels. The well respected historian, Josephus, who lived in the first century, said that the priest of the first temple wore the name of God on their headbands & that it was 4 vowels! Source: “War of the Jews” 5.5.7. by Flavius Josephus. Josephus was Jewish, the son of a priest & extremely well educated & would have known such things. 2. The next letter looks like a backward E or F. It had the E or EH sound. 3. The next letter almost looks like Y but the top portion of the letter looks like C instead of a pointed Y. In fact, the letter C was sometimes used to represent a sound similar to the S sound. In some scrolls, it looks more like a U on the top instead of C. In other scrolls it looks like a S on top of the stick. So whether it looked like a S, C or U, in all cases there are curves. This is not a Y like we use today in English & also not the Yod they use in Assyrian Aramaic. If we look at all 4 letters of the divine name & render this letter as only a U sound without any consonant sound, then we would have 4 vowel sounds together which would be impossible to speak as a name. The fact is that some letters represented both vowel & consonant sounds, such as is true with the first letter. Language & how to write was constantly evolving & continues to evolve even to this day. In ancient times, they were having a problem determining how to write sounds such as this sound of the S sound in combo with the U sound. Therefore it sometimes looked like a U and sometimes looked like a S. 4. Then, the final letter is the backward E again. So in conclusion, we have the 4 letters “JEUE” or “JESE” but the truth is that the Hebrew sound of the 3rd letter would need to be represented by 2 English letters for us modern day speakers. Thus in our modern way of writing, it would be “JESUE”. JEUE/JESE is the original 4 letters written for the Creator’s Name. Remember that the 3rd letter has both a S & U sound. English doesn’t have one letter that adequately represents the 3rd letter, so we must use both the S & U letters. (JESUE is also pronounced with 2 syllables. The 1st syllable sounds like the plural of the letter G, as in saying the sentence “Google has 2 G’s”. But it would not be correct to write the letter G in this name, but it has the sound. The 2nd syllable continues & confirms the S sound of the plural of the G sound, and then moves onto the short u sound of the word “us” without the final S of the word “us”. Thus we have the total sound of “G’s-u” without a long U, but rather with a short u sound.) All 4 letters of JEUE were considered “vowels”, even the J because the Jot/Jota/iota character could be used to have either the J sound, or the E or I sound, depending on the other sounds within the word. Since it was connected with 3 other vowels, it must have the J sound, that’s the rule of language. The U was also a semi-vowel having both the short u vowel sound & consonant S sound. But all 4 letters were considered vowels since they had the connection of possible vowel sounds in certain cases. But it would be illogical to think that we could pronounce the holy name as 4 vowel sounds, even though it was written with 4 vowels. We must have consonant sounds in a word/name. It also would not make any sense to pronounce JEUE with a consonant sound at the beginning followed by 3 vowels without having another consonant sound. In this particular structure of letters, we really need 2 consonant sounds. So we must pronounce the U/S with both the U and S sounds. Thus we have the name of JESUE, not pronounced “JE-SUE” but rather “JE’s-u” or “G’s-u”. Remember that the u is short, not long, and is the same short u sound in “us”. The problem with Y name followers is that they try to force every Assyrian so called “Hebrew” pronunciation upon every Paleo-Hebrew letter, which is impossible to accurately do, because Paleo-Hebrew and Aramaic are 2 distinct, mostly unrelated languages, as shown in the charts on this page. As I have proven, it is more accurate to place ancient Greek pronunciations upon Paleo-Hebrew.
Remembering S Sounds: We know that after the Jewish priests transitioned to the Aramaic language & to the Assyrian name of YHWH, that even though the original divine name was banned by Babylon & by the Jewish government rulers, the priests remembered the S sound in the middle of the original true divine name by making the Aramaic S letter with their hands when they performed priestly blessings. Source. They were not allowed to write & speak the divine name, but they used sign language to remember the S sound in the middle of the divine name. There is also reason to believe that they might have even remembered the S sound both in the middle and at the end! The rule of the Greek language, (which actually is the Paleo-Hebrew language because history shows that the Greeks adopted their language from the Hebrews) is that you add the S sound at the end of JESUE to show that it’s a male masculine word. Then the u sound blends in with the final E to make one sound mixed with the final S sound, thus we have “Jesus”, pronounced “G’s-us”. Therefore, to say the ancient Paleo-Hebrew divine name of the creator & properly applying all of the rules of language, we should pronounce the ancient Hebrew divine name as “Jesus”. Greek is Hebrew. Jesus is Hebrew. Also, English comes mostly from Greek which is Paleo-Hebrew. The USA & British Commonwealth are the modern descendants of the “lost” 10 tribes of Israel & so English still maintains a lot of Hebrew sounds. Source. Even if you disagree, please at least take the time to finish reading this article because soon I’m going to give you solid, undeniable proof about the origins of the Y names of Yeshua, Yahweh, YHWH, Yahshua, etc.
Exodus 3:14 The Name At The Burning Bush The other main scripture all of us refer to in the discussion of sacred names or concerning the Name of the Creator is Exodus 3:14 which in the KJV says “And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” According to Strong’s Concordance (a dictionary of the bible), which is actually a concordance of the Babylonian Aramaic Language (when referring to the Old Testament), the words “I AM That I AM” comes from H1961 H1961: “hayah hayah”. However in the true Hebrew scriptures of Exo.3:14, it actually said: “EHJEH ASHER EHJEH”. (Pronounced I-JE Asher I-JE). Contrary to what some people say, it was not “hayah hayah” and not “I Am, I Am”. But regardless of what the above sources claim, it also was not “EHYEH ASHER EHYEH” because there was no Aramaic or Yiddish letter Y in Paleo-Hebrew. The following image shows what it would look like in Paleo-Hebrew. Note: This is not an image of an actual scroll, but rather is just an example of how it would have been written.
The most important part of this sentence is “EHJEH”. So I will explain each letter. In this image, you see 3 words. The 1st word & 3rd word is “EHJEH”. Reading from right to left, in the 1st & last word, the last letter is looks like a capital letter A on its side, pointing left. Most of the time, that is actually the letter A. But not always. Thousands of years ago, the sounds of both E and A were interchangeable. And there was more than one possible letter/character for the e/E sounds. The next letter, working to the left, looks like a backward F with an extra line, or perhaps like the letter E backwards with an extra long handle. It had the possible sounds of E or EH. The next letter looks like Z with a line through it. But it’s the ancient Jota/Jot/Jud that had the sounds of J, I and E. All of these letters depend how what letter and sound is associated next to it. In this case, it has the J sound because of its association with the over vowels in this word. And then the final letter is the backward F/E looking character again. Therefore we have “EHJEH”. It’s pronounced like the 2 letters “I, G”, but the letter G is not an accurate way to write the word/sentence. But it has the sound of saying the 2 English letters “I” and “G”. God was saying “I am JE”, which is the more accurate way to write this sentence. But He did not use the word “am” in the middle. He did not say “I AM” because thousands of years ago, they did not use so many words in a sentence. They spoke very short sentences, with few words. He said “I JE”, which means “I am JE”. Now, placing this phrase into the entire 3 word sentence, we have: “EHJEH ASHER EHJEH” It’s hard to translate into just 3 or 4 English words. It means “I am JEH (the h is silent so it’s pronounced JE, the same sound in Jesus) the beginning, currently self-existing, and eternally existing, JEH”. He wasn’t saying that His Name was “EHJEH ASHER EHJEH”, but rather He was speaking a sentence that basically says “I am JE the beginning, currently self-existing, and eternally existing, JE” Or in other words, He was saying “I am JE, The Alpha & the Omega, the beginning and the end, the eternal”. He said that His Name is JE as in Jesus, JE with us, God with us. JE is short for Jesus. In fact, many early New Testaments even abbreviated Jesus as “JE”. “EHJEH ASHER EHJEH” is only part of what He said in Exodus 3:14. After this, He said “THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, ‘JESUS HAS SENT ME TO YOU’ ” Therefore He first explained Who He is (basically ‘Alpha & Omega’, a very primitive way that man had already known the Creator) in connection with the JE abbreviation of His name, and then He gave the full name! Considering All Things: Considering EHJEH “I (am) JE” in Exodus 3:14 & that it meant that He is the Alpha & Omega; and JESUS said He is the A&O in the book of Revelation,in Exo.3:14, He said both JE and JESUE/JESUS,and “JESUE/Jesus” in Exo.6:3 and most other places in the bible,and “Jesus” abbreviated as just “JE” in many early New Testaments,and the name of “Jesus” in both early & modern New Testaments, the conclusion must be that the creator’s name in both the Old Testament & New Testament, in Paleo Hebrew, Greek & English is “Jesus”. His name does not change in different languages, because He is the creator of all the Earth and all races. It is wrong to try to change the pronunciation of the divine name. His name is Holy & should not be changed to a different pronunciation in any language. Jesus is his Hebrew name. We respect his Hebrew name & have no need to alter it.
