According to the Greek and Hebrew "God and Bible" correctors, God in the Old Testament should be called `Yahweh' by all English speaking people. Furthermore they say that God in the New Testament should be called `Yeshua'. Is this correct?
Now if we were Greeks or Jews in the l st Century we would need to know these names and their correct pronunciation.
But what does God expect of us today seeing that we do have his infallible, inerrant and God inspired word in the English language -The King James Bible.
He directs us to use his name as contained in the King James Bible and we find that the words "Yeshua" and "Yahweh" are never used.
The Bible does have the correct name of God in the Old Testament which is the word "LORD" or "Jehovah" but never Yahweh.
But this raises the question - who is Jehovah?
Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Lord Jesus Christ of the New Testament. This is proved by Isaiah 40:3 and Matthew 3:3 where we have both Isaiah and John the Baptist referring to the same person.
"The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God " (Isaiah 40:3)
"For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. " (Matthew 3:3)
SO WE CAN SEE THAT THE CORRECT NAME OF GOD IS ...
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
It is merely superstition and religious legalism to be using the names of God as they were/may have sounded in the 1st Century.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
