[Exodus 20:7] You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

The Hebrew word VAIN, SHUA means futility, triviality, take casually and lightly without a thought, irreverently, disrespectfully and therefore without the fear of God. Anyone taking the Holy Name of God casually incurs guilt, which then calls for punishment.

The reason why people took interest in God’s most holy name nowadays is the widely spread teaching on getting a blessing, as if being blessed is something acceptable and holy. The materialistic (faith and prosperity) brings it all down to the level of money; hence, all billionaires are blessed even the atheists. Those who licked a bit of Judaism got the notion of getting blessed off of the Jew. Many pastors took me for a dinner and gave me a fat check just to be blessed; they plainly said so. I thought that this was a very cheap way of going about being blessed. So the opposite must be also true. All anti-Semites are already cursed and go to hell. How about repentance? How about God’s endless mercies and grace, which is space and time allotted for repentance and change?

No matter how high you heat up this spin, like water, it will never evaporate. This is a mental bondage, an accumulation of prejudices, ignorance and misunderstandings. Nowadays people are taught that if they “correctly” enunciate God’s Name then they turn some mystical mechanisms and sort of squeeze out from God some special secret blessings. Fools, and fools again. Shall I say again? Fools!!! That’s how Jewish mysticism and Cabala started. Moreover, people assume that because they believe in Jesus Christ—whom they also call YAH’SHUA—do not know that they play with vanity, which SHUA (ISHAV) means. 

Yeshua (Jesus) means salvation because of these so very clearly stated words God spoke through an angel.

[Matthew 1:21] She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, (Yeshua) for He will save (yeshua) His people from their sins. 

The Father called His firstborn (in heaven and on earth) Son SALVATION according to His mission.

Now look how clear (outside common Christian theology) is the Scripture:

When He is revealed to all Jews in latter days
[Zechariah 12:10] I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.

Mary the vessel God chose for His physical Son
[Luke 2:7] And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

[Luke 2:23] (It is written in the Law of the Lord, “EVERY firstborn MALE THAT OPENS THE WOMB SHALL BE CALLED HOLY TO THE LORD”),

How can “the only” begotten be God when God was never conceived, begotten or born?
[Romans 8:29] For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.

[Colossians 1:15; 18] He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. [18] He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.

[Hebrews 1:6; 11:28; 12:23] And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.” [11:28] By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that he who destroyed the firstborn would not touch them. [12:23] The general assembly and church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect.

Now that we have established the indisputable fact that Jesus came from God as His first Son then the firstborn must have siblings. On earth Jesus had brothers and sisters, in whom they initially did not believe (John 7:5), but later they did. When Jesus rose from the dead they believed in the firstborn their brother. This is explained with this verse:

[John 20:17] Jesus said to her, “Stop clinging to Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.’”  

The pivotal point was His resurrection after which He clearly declared to us that we are His siblings, and if so then we are God’s children; and therefore according to the words of Jesus, also gods. It is hard for many to swallow this truth because hardly anyone wants to come out from religion, which is an appearance of godliness devoid of substance. That substance is not our “own” imaginary thing but God’s Truth.

[John 10:34-36] Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? [35] If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken). [36] 36 do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?

The mission of Yeshua was to save, which means to make whole; to heal and restore what’s been lost. Hence, when He said to those who were ill “Only believe” He did not mean have faith in the possibility of being healed, for the possibility (the IT) alone cannot heal you, but I (the person) can. So believe in Me the SAVIOR and Redeemer who buys back what’s been stolen or lost. Anyone who called Jesus the Son of David received a miracle, for the statement “Son of David” speaks of the Father’s revelatory disclosure as to who His Firstborn Son was. Only the Messiah was addressed by the title: Son of David. Hence these words:

[Matthew 11:27] All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

The Father revealed the true mission of His Son to the two blind men who hollered after Jesus all the way from Jericho to Jerusalem.

[Matthew 20:30-31] And two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” The crowd sternly told them to be quiet, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

If you attribute to Yeshua the YAH or YOH then why not to John whose Hebrew name is YOH-ANAN?

God will not leave unpunished those who take His Name in vain. For this reason the rabbis were right in shielding the Name, this is a very old tradition. The Essenes and the scribes who copied the Scripture whenever they came to the writing the of God’s Holy Name they went to take a mikveh, washing off all sweat, which God hates, and put on a set of fresh linen clothes and then reverently wrote the Tetragrammaton YHVH.

[Ezekiel 44:18] Linen turbans shall be on their heads and linen undergarments shall be on their loins; they shall not gird themselves with anything which makes them sweat.

For this reason Jerusalem was also chosen and the airy Mt Moriah for the Temple.

Those who have assumed that Yahweh is the name of the Almighty Father are wrong. It is not, and I won’t even elaborate on this because if I did I would be liable of a trespass and held accountable for it, but fools do that without any thought.

Jews do not casually write any Name of God. This practice does not come from the commandment not to take the LORD’S Name in vain. This commandment refers solely to an oath taking, a prohibition against swearing by God's Name falsely, L’SHUA or in falsehood.

Judaism does not prohibit writing the Name of God per se; it prohibits only erasing or defacing a Name of God. However, observant Jews avoid writing any Name of God casually because of the risk that the written Name might later be defaced, obliterated or even accidentally destroyed by someone who does not know any better. Yet too many ignorant fools dare to do this. My responsibility is to tell you to not do that in my presence. If you want to suffer and die from accidents, famines and epidemics then that’s your foolish choice, but don’t even try to bless me using the NAME.

The commandment not to erase or deface the name of God comes from Deuteronomy 12:3 where the Israelites were commanded to destroy all things related to the idolatrous religions of Canaan. God’s zeal for the holiness of His name is so great that all local deities were to be obliterated. Immediately afterwards, we are commanded not to do the same to our God. From this, the rabbis inferred that we are commanded not to destroy any holy thing, and not to erase or deface God’s Name.

Now, why should we not heed this? There is no blessing in playing with God’s name, but only a curse. I would advise anyone and everyone who comes in contact with those who ignorantly use the Tetragrammaton the wrong way to also advise them, and even sternly warn them about the danger they are in. It is only for their good. The fear of God brings peace and its opposites bring, yes the opposite of peace. Hence the Aaronic blessing carries the blessing of peace, but only Aaron and his sons were told to do that, no one else. Since we may speculate as to who is directly descended from Aaron it is better to seek the LORD and not go after some mystical blessing. Blessing, blessing… propagated by foolish preachers who excite only the natural senses of the hungry-for-blessing people as if to be blessed is holiness in itself. Are you a hunter of blessings? Is your shotgun loaded with all the tricks of the (religious) trade? Who taught you to shoot blank bullets?

The Hebrew language does not have the letter “W” but “V” and “U” which is exchangeable within the flow of a sentence. YEHEE means: has been, HAYA means: is; and HOVE means will be or He who comes. Yahu-Ha-Yahu-Ha-“Y” - this letter starts the first, endlessly so. It is given to some, but secretly and so it should be kept. It should never be written on paper or on social media like Facebook or anywhere else. It is secret and private. The name holds secrets of the double edge sword, one edge cuts while the other heals and blesses. Anyone who just licked a little knowledge and assumes that it is okay to casually use God’s name draws the cutting edge of God’s Name to him or herself. People needlessly die and needlessly fall ill and die. It would have been better for them to never encounter any teaching regarding the NAME.

The safest way is to use ADONAY the LORD, and within your heart know and meditate on God’s name, but only within your heart and as long as He has revealed it to you. If you pick up something from outside and try to be smart the warning remains.  

Some people render the four-letter Name as "Jehovah," but this is even worse. The word "Jehovah" comes from the fact that ancient Jewish texts used to put the vowels of the Name ADONAY (the usual substitute for YHVH) under the consonants of YHVH to remind people not to pronounce YHVH as written. A sixteenth century German scribe, while transliterating the Bible into Latin for the Pope, wrote the Name out as it appeared in his texts, with the consonants of YHVH and the vowels of ADONAY, and came up with the word JeHoVaH ("J" is pronounced "Y" in German), and the name stuck.

The fascination with the NAME for all must stop; otherwise it will not go well with anyone who keeps up and even propagates this fascination. There are people with mental problems who want to elevate themselves and their phony and questionable ministries; as a result they have gotten worse. There is no reversal of any misfortune that comes from the misuse and abuse of God’s Holy Name. There is only a warning with consequences following.  

The reason why the NAME is shielded

Over time the people of God saw many problems stemming from this forbidden practice. The cabalist Yitzhak Luria started this dangerous practice of permutations.  While in Yeshiva I met those who told me how they got entangled in the Cabalistic permutations of God’s Name.

Luria’s Cabala often refers to Messianism and is believed that his Messianic ideas paved the way for the false Messiah, Shabbetai Zvi.

Luria died in an epidemic in the summer of 1572 and was buried in Safed. The epidemic broke out exactly on August 5 that year and it is recorded in history. Nothing this sudden is of gradual or natural causes. There is nothing natural in our Universe. Everything is supernatural. We just have closed ourselves to it with our sophistication and pompous pride. We the worms and the dust dare to act as gods on our own without the Almighty God. Our pride and foolishness have no boundaries and there is no wisdom in our tracks. Since Luria was the main authority of that time in that place, he drew God’s wrath and caused the epidemic. Well, you might say epidemics, famines, and plagues come and go so it does not necessarily mean that it was caused by Luria. Would you want to take your chances on that? If you are willing to gamble on your rationale then you go ahead and do that, but I know that when the head of a cast, group or tribe or an entire nation breaches God’s personal commandment then the head and his followers will suffer. Anyone breaking Deuteronomy 18:9-14, even unaware, bears the consequences.

David was not supposed to count Israel and Joab told him so (2 Samuel 24:1-4) but the king's word prevailed. From verses 15-25 we read about the plague caused by one man the leader of the nation, yet needlessly so.

Today people lack the fear of God. They do not know what it is; so as result they suffer and die. However, there is the secret of life, health and immortality, and I have it... but that's another subject.

Fools do not study God, but make up theology of their own and mislead others with their imaginations. Hardly anyone loves God for if anyone did truly love God he or she would know Him and His ways much better than it is today. No lover of God would ever dare to play with His Holy Name.

There are many commandments, but one is very personal and most holy and that is God’s holy Name. Just as there were famines and plagues all over the world, men are the cause because man’s stewardship of the planet is vain, selfish and hence foolish. Anything out of line with God’s will evokes consequences.

[John 5:42] “I know you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves”—Jesus.

Anyone who truly loves God would respect Him and keep His commandments. But as it is today we choose what we like or dislike and the rest we put under the curse of the law, just because it suits us. Wretched souls, when will you learn? Love is not selfish nor a lip service, official service or a ceremony.

Theoretical Cabalists meditated on the Name of God for spiritual insight. Often this took the form of studying "permutations" of YHVH to gain esoteric knowledge about God. This is a form of Gnosticism or "theosophy." Cabalists attempted to use the NAME to sort of "magically" affect the physical and supernatural worlds. Often this took the form of inscribing the NAME on amulets and other artifacts to ward off curses. This form of occultism was plainly forbidden by the TORAH (Leviticus 19:31; 20:6; 20:27). But this was done in self-defense. In a similar way King David borrowed from the Philistines the style of transport for the Ark of the Covenant. People died, and unnecessarily so; because David did not bother to learn that the Ark was never to be transported on a brand new cart and drawn by two milking cows; but was to be carried on the Levite’s shoulders. Ignorant Philistines uncured plagues. Uzza died by the LORD’S fire and everything stopped. Back to the study house of God’s ways…  

While living in Jerusalem I came in contact with many students of the Cabala who told me that many of their friends are in mental hospitals. According to their reports they went too far. Also many cabalist rabbis lost their minds and landed in psychiatric wards where they remain to this day. I went through Cabala, but never practiced anything for I was not lost; nor was I after any spiritual aggrandizement. I found it not only dangerous but something that appeals only to an overblown ego completely exalting the self. When you crank up the self with all its egotistical attributes you rip the straight and healthy psychological fabric. And that’s what happened to many already. How many must die or go crazy before we learn God’s ways and not just our own presumptions and vain imaginations about Him?

In closing

[Hebrews 10:30-31] For we know Him who said, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY.” And again, “THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE.” [31] It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

It is the loving voice of the Almighty God your Father, who is not religious, ritualistic or mystical in any way. He is normal. God is not complicated in any way. His ways are simple.

[Isaiah 35:8] A highway will be there, a roadway, and it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, but it will be for him who walks that way, and fools will not wander on it.

[Matthew 7:14] For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Are you one of the few or one of the many? Why complicating the simple? Children are simple and honest, but they cannot become adults by will. But we can use our will to humble the pride of this life and become as simple as children, because such is our God and His Kingdom. Only in this simplicity we know God as He really is.

I am blessed to know Him as He is. If you believe me then you will also study me; and you are more than welcome. You will soon find out the truth if I have pretended or I speak the truth.

[Matthew 18:3-4] Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. [4] Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Please don’t fall for the sophistication of man’s foolishness.
