Names and Genealogies

The Almighty 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 YAH, in His infinite wisdom and knowledge (Isaiah 55:8–9, Isaiah 40:15,28), whom no man can begin to comprehend.

Integration of His Name

𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄’s Placing His Name 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH or YAHWEH), in extraordinary ways, includes His name in many things. What is most interesting is how He merged His name into words, places, and people that belong to Him. The first integrated word that might come to mind is HalleluYAH, but the integration of Hallelu and YAH is only the beginning of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄’s…

I Am YAHWEH Your Elohim, a Jealous El

Jealous El!

There’s a considerable amount of misunderstanding surrounding YAWHEH’s statement about Himself, the creator of the Heavens and Earth, being a jealous El.

Who Have You Been Listening To?

A few months ago, a friend shared a head-scratching video with me asking for my thoughts on the topic.

I found his statements and rant absurd, and honestly, it left me…

Will You Trust YAHWEH!

Our heavenly Father, YAHWEH, has multiple divine attributes that we attempt to define despite our limited human understanding (Isaiah 55:8–9; Ephesians 3:20–21). Today we will examine two of the characteristics, omnipresent and omniscient. His omnipresent nature allows him to be present everywhere simultaneously (past, present, and future), while being omniscient indicates an infinite knowledge of all things. However, as mere mortals, our cognitive…
