As a Christian who believes in our Father’s sacred name usage, I proceed in life and in these writings in His true holy name which is Yahuweh. That is the name of our Father in the Hebrew language, and since the Hebraic is what was used in those ancient times of Moses and Aaron, the name of Yahuweh is what was exactly known and spoken by the first human beings who received knowledge of our Father and spoke His sacred name. To some people these things mean nothing, yet our entire world has been propelled throughout time by acts and deeds committed allegedly in our Father’s name. Devotions have been made and wars waged for many, many centuries now and still everyday in the name of our Father. Moreover, we did not come to our religious uses, devotional references, or acknowledgments of due sanctity with respect to our Father’s name solely of our own accord or intuition. His word is repetitive through Scriptures in directing that we pray, have faith, and believe, all in His name. Indeed the name is held in a sacred sense in passage after passage throughout the Holy Scriptures. Despite this, references and names have been assigned our Father which does not even equate to translation much less transliteration; the latter arising as most appropriate given the sacred sense.
The issue of usage is generally deemed diminutive by others who hold to new traditional religious beliefs which have long abandoned the sense of sacred name usage. However, the direction, sense, and wisdom that come across in Scripture can be applied to our own human condition and it may then be easier to see or feel how true it all rings. Consider: were we to know our biological father by a certain name and then at some point in our lives began to call him something else other than which he has originally been known to us as, of course something is lost in translation. Would it be correct to begin to refer to that biological father differently because of a change in circumstance? Perhaps were our mother to re-marry another man who is now charged as our stepfather, would it therefore now be appropriate for us to stop calling our father “dad”?; imagine saying “dad, I was thinking, now that I have a stepfather, I have decided to start calling you Gregory.” We see that it is the spirit that is changed by what is affirmed by the mouth. Of course, a young child who was raised to call his father Gregory without ever having known him as “dad” may not be able to corrupt the spirit for the child has never had the requisite knowledge in order to breach. However, it may behoove all of Yahuweh’s children in this day to pay every honorable acknowledgment to Him as is directed in Scripture; to both preserve as well as serve the sanctity of our faith as is led by Spirit; and to conduct both responsibility and sacrifice on our paths to growing closer to Him, as is the exemplar of Christ.
